Hey guys!

I've run across [url=http://www.syti.net/GB/SilentWeaponsGB.html ]an interesting article[/url]. It's long, yes, and sometimes it's difficult to understand what's written there, but it seems to describe the modern situation in the world society tremendously right.

Some summary of the article.

**********************************
...the low-class elements of society must be brought under total control, i.e., must be housebroken, trained, and assigned a yoke and long-term social duties from a very early age, before they have an opportunity to question the propriety of the matter. ... This form of slavery is essential to maintain some measure of social order, peace, and tranquillity for the ruling upper class.

...the public might instinctively feel that something is wrong, but that is because of the technical nature of the silent weapon, they cannot express their feeling in a rational way, or handle the problem with intelligence...

...if the people really cared about their fellow man, they would control their appetites (greed, procreation, etc.) so that they would not have to operate on a credit or welfare social system which steals from the worker to satisfy the bum...

DIVERSION, THE PRIMARY STRATEGY

Experience has prevent that the simplest method of securing a silent weapon and gaining control of the public is to keep the public undisciplined and ignorant of the basic system principles on the one hand, while keeping them confused, disorganized, a nd distracted with matters of no real importance on the other hand.


This is achieved by:

(1) disengaging their minds; sabotaging their mental activities; providing a low-quality program of public education in mathematics, logic, systems design and economics; and discouraging technical creativity.


(2) engaging their emotions, increasing their self-indulgence and their indulgence in emotional and physical activities, by:

(a) unrelenting emotional affrontations and attacks (mental and emotional rape) by way of constant barrage of sex, violence, and wars in the media - especially the T.V. and the newspapers.
(Isn't it what we can observe now?)
(b) giving them what they desire - in excess - "junk food for thought" - and depriving them of what they really need.

(3) rewriting history and law and subjecting the public to the deviant creation, thus being able to shift their thinking from personal needs to highly fabricated outside priorities.

These preclude their interest in and discovery of the silent weapons of social automation technology.

The general rule is that there is a profit in confusion; the more confusion, the more profit. Therefore, the best approach is to create problems and then offer solutions.

DIVERSION SUMMARY


Media: Keep the adult public attention diverted away from the real social issues, and captivated by matters of no real importance.
Schools: Keep the young public ignorant of real mathematics, real economics, real law, and real history.
Entertainment: Keep the public entertainment below a sixth-grade level.
Work: Keep the public busy, busy, busy, with no time to think; back on the farm with the other animals.

...are we all just brainless sheeps gladly consuming things which mass media feed us?

Do you think there's a bit of reality in the acticle concerning the existence and effect of the silent weapon?

I have long felt that the mass media has been "dumbing down" over time and all you have to do is watch ten hours of American television on the networks in prime time or the afternoons to see that, but I certainly don't think there's anyone one person or one organization behind it.

I think Americans in particular are lazy as a whole and would rather take the easy way out in terms of their entertainment than have to work for it. And therefore, the public media reflects those tastes. I think it's astonishing that the U.S. Congress is putting any thought at all into steroids in baseball when there are real problems in the world that affect people other than millionaires. I think it's horrifying that the news of Brittney Spears's sister's pregnancy makes more news than real social issues. But for the people who do seek out real information on real issues, there are channels for that.

But all this "fluff" out there does make it easier for people who are "above" the brainless garbage out there to do stuff "when no one is looking."

I definitely disagree with the part about education - my kids are getting a very good, solid education and I'm very pleased with what they are learning and how they are learning it.

Yes, Barb, I agree with you. I myself noticed that news about pop-starts and about other things of really little importance have filled almost all mass media. It's not only in the USA but in Russia as well. A lot of times after switching on the TV, surfing through channels, I end up with the thought that there's really nothing worth watching, and I switch the TV off. During several last years I watch the TV about 15 minutes a day on the average, just for news. But also remembering that even news are not real facts but interpretations.

I wonder whether the situation with television is the same in European countries, and other countries such as China, Japan, India, Brazil, Canada, etc.

But I'm afraid of the other thing stated in the article as well. They say this imperfection of people (being lazy, looking for easy ways of entertainment, etc) has been noticed by the people "above" (or people behind the certain?), taken into consideration, and used in a "proper" way now. In other words, it has probably become a vicious circle: the "general public" is imperfect; some smart people "above" have noticed that and now are using it, making the "general public" more and more imperfect (otherwise you wouldn't have had this feeling of "dumbing down" mass media).

Quote from the article again:

************************************

The general public refuses to improve its own mentality and its faith in its fellow man. It has become a herd of proliferating barbarians, and, so to speak, a blight upon the face of the earth.

They do not care enough about economic science to learn why they have not been able to avoid war despite religious morality, and their religious or self-gratifying refusal to deal with earthly problems renders the solution of the earthly problem un reachable to them.

It is left to those few who are truly willing to think and survive as the fittest to survive, to solve the problem for themselves as the few who really care.

************************************

To solve the problem for themselves? According to their own aims? But what if those aims are creating wars and crisis, because of which we, mere people, suffer? Because of which our sons, sisters, brothers, parents die? Do we really need it? Is it our aim?..

Media seem to have their own life and I do not dare to say whether they are ALL influenced by the "Big Brother" or not, but to be honest, I think they are more dependant on the popularity of their programs for general public than on directives of politicians. The best strong way how to overcome their influence on people is to stop supporting them - e.g. to stop watching TV. I have made it three years ago and feel much more freedom since then. Yes, media have a power, but only as long as people support them. If you are not satisfied with media, ignore them.
I have doubts about the statements of "manipulation of children at schools". I am not perfectly satisfied with the level of education in my country, but I strongly believe that it is not being manipulated by a government. The evidence for this should also be, that the study programmes in my country changed only a little bit in last 20 yearsEmotion: stick out tongue
I don't believe that I am manipulated by the government and feel that it is only my decision to turn off the TV and the radio if I am strong enough. The more I believe it, the more I feel that all people CAN do this if they realize that it brings nothing good to them... The fact that people are becoming "comfortably numb" is only due to their ignorance of real values and their attention to sensations and fame, and the claim that we are being manipulated by the One government is only for excusing ourselves of this simple but sad situation.
P.S.: Sssh, only between us, I am a secret agent of the One Government infiltrated in this Forum and my mission is to persuade you all that you have no reason to fear about your future. Hahahahaha[6]
What if tomorrow the government releases a directive saying that mass media are obliged to show only developing programs, and if they don't comply with if, they will lose their licenses? On whom in this case are dependant the mass media companies? Emotion: stick out tongue

By the way, I'm not wholly content with the education in my county, either.
LawyeeI don't believe that I am manipulated by the government and feel that it is only my decision to turn off the TV and the radio if I am strong enough.

If it concerns such "small" things as turning off the TV, then, of course, it's a decision of everyone what to do with it. But in my opinion, "manipulation" covers a larger field of actions... For example, I need to purchase something online, and online buying is the only way I can get a thing I want. To make the purchase, I need a credit or debit card. I prefer the last one since I don't want to get into debts. I go to a bank and... guess what. They say that if I have a little amount of money on my deposit (which is supposed to be since I want to use this card for small online purchases), I'll have to pay about 10$ per month just for the fact that I keep the card! Isn't it direct extortion? Or a kind of manipulation... It's a real situation, by the way. Now I'm thinking whether to have a card anyway or to give up the idea of the online purchase. (Conclusion: if I don't want to be manipulated and extorted this way, I've got to overcome my weakness and to refuse my need to buy it. But I want to buy it, lol!)

People are becoming dumb just for their own ignorance, of course. Those who claim that the "guitly one" is the One Government (or as you wish to call it) are just trying to lump the blame on anyone but just not on themselves. However, this all doesn't mean there're no such characters as "people above" who use ordinary people's weaknesses. (To be fair, this doesn't mean either that there are such people, though their existence is quite likely).
Another example of being controlled in a way... Happened a minute ago. I tried to login to my ICQ but it said: "There's a new version available. You must install it in order to sign in to ICQ. Would you like to install it now?" Must?.. Must??What if I liked the old one very much and I don't ever want to change it! Awh... that's crazy. Emotion: angry
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Well, we HAD TO accept the fact that we will use the new version of this Forum as well. Finally have I realized that those "people above" who manipulate us are Punky, MrM and other admins!!! Emotion: stick out tongue

For this reason we have the constitutional limitation of government and accept the concept of human rights. If it ever happens that the government will enact this kind of regulation, it will be automatically held unconstitutional by the Constitutional Court or Supreme Court, or whatever its name in your country is. In my country there were recently disputes about the bill on press regulation which would change only in a slight way the position of press, but it was followed by a massive disagreement from press representatives, politicians, non-governmental organizations as well as international organizations. At the present state, I can say that the abovementioned example is not possible in my country (though I don't know much about the situation in Russia, for example).
lol

I have absolutely no doubt that in the past the Media was completely regulated by government. However, things have changed. Certain media players, Rupert Murdoch for example, have now become so powerful that governments are only too happy, in many cases, to comply with their wishes. Their (The politician's) alternative is to disobey, and thus get no media coverage, which is politically the same as being 'sent to Coventry'. The American media's ignoring of Ron Paul in the current elections is a prime example.
Of course whilst certain members might be, 'Governments' and 'Media' are certainly not at the top of the food chain (or pyramid). Banks are without doubt on a higher rung. And above the banks...
