Thus far, thanks for the outstanding participation and resources provided everyone!
Addressing indoctrination through education, which is being discussed. I see this as the old model for this process. The problem with it is that it's
slow ( taking at least 13 years ) and relies upon hundreds of thousands of teachers to fall in line with the agenda. I personally had several
teachers, in public school, who basically "threw out the textbook" and followed their own lesson plans.
But here is a thought. Most of us believe today that if we create a heinous crime of some sort - a highly trained group of people will show up, via
jet, within hours, who will find a thread from our shirt, a shoe print in the dirt, or a hair, fingerprint, or skin sample... and that they'll simply
feed this information into a computer and our names and addresses will pop up.
For the most part this is all bunk. It is largely fantasy. In reality a fingerprint might
get you interviewed. The rest would, at best, only be
evidence used against you in trial - if you were charged.
The reality is that most criminals are caught for two reasons. One, violent crimes tend to be committed by people who know the victim - thus limiting
the suspect pool. Secondly, and more frequent, guilty people talk. They confess to friends, spouses, children, etc. And THIS is usually what gets them
looked at for prosecution.
So why do many of us spend out lives worried that if we ever shoplifted an apple - the hair we left behind would get us prosecuted?
A very real psychological operation and phenomenon known as The CSI Effect.
You want a population afraid to go against the grain - and one which follows all the laws you happen to pass? You could go "old School" and line
London Bridge and the Tower with severed heads... Or you could partner with media and use a bit of truth, mixed with a LOT of fantasy - and convince
the population that it's that
easy to catch guilty people.
This is just one small example of the types of behavior modification and social engineering we are discussing.
