PSYOP or Psychological Operations has both a good and bad effect on our civilization. It is performed by Governments, their military, Corporations, to include the media who’s allegiance can change at the drop of a hat, and in our own personal relationships. Sometimes intended, sometimes not. We all practice it daily in our interactions with people.

But the one thing that all the aforementioned have in common is that there is a desired effect upon the audience with which the message is intended. Whether it be in National interests or customers or our significant others.

There is another word for PSYOP. It’s called Marketing. Whether it be “Buy our product!, visit this website, vote for this guy or gal, or even…”Baby! But we NEED that 72 inch flat screen TV!” We are bombarded with it daily and from all corners.

To paraphrase from the US Army’s own PSYOP Manual.

“The mission is to persuade and influence the target audience to change their behavior in support of the Commander's intent and objectives.”

When you boil it down…it’s advertising!…Nothing more than marketing.

But that same marketing can be used to divide. The have’s vs. the have not’s. And it can be used to further agendas that continue to erode personal freedoms.

Gen. Pershing helped put down the Moro revolt by promising the rebels he would bury all Muslim dead in pig entrails. Definitely not a nice way of doing business, but it got the job done…for a period anyway.

The only way to counter PSYOP is to have an open mind…and keep it open. Think for yourself and to come up with your own conclusions, even if they disagree with your emotions. You must have and be open to honest discussions.

Only you can allow yourself to be told to what to think by others...or you can think for yourself.

Yeah, well - when a person becomes aware of the indoctrination, the indoctrination changes to propaganda for that person. When a person is aware of the propaganda he/she can freely choose to believe it or not.

Again: The truth is nothing but validated arguments of belief.

I wonder if your PSYOP is the same PSYOP that hits people until they die, with scalar weapon? Are you talking about PSYOPS that create all the world's troubles through gaslighting, and gangstalking, and crime using psychotronic and microwave satellite weapons. The fact is any thing that can lure your thoughts so they are not yours, is a weapon that destroys society. If, the byproduct is mixed, and some good comes out of it it is no different than the friendly mannerisms of the serial killer. Get better information, and next time I may lean to your opinion.
