How the war between good & evil is waged in the battlefield of the mind
Recent research suggests the risk of suicide attempts among people with trauma disorders may be even higher than among people who have major depression. In addition, there is evidence that people with trauma disorders have higher rates of alcoholism, chronic medical illnesses, and abusiveness in succeeding generations.
Conditioning, Trauma, Dissociation and PTSD
Thought reform (or brainwashing) is not mysterious. It is the systematic application of psychological and social influence techniques in an organized programmatic way within constructed and managed environments. The goal is to produce specific attitudinal and behavioral changes. The changes occur incrementally without being overtly visible to those undergoing the process. And this is how the enemy is winning the battle for you mind: Attitudes and behavior are being changed a step at a time according to the plan of those directing the program. Dissociation is a mental process, which produces a ‘lack of connection in a person's thoughts, memories, feelings, actions, or sense of identity.” During the period of time when a person is dissociating, certain information is not associated with other information as it normally would be.
For example, during a traumatic experience, a person may dissociate the memory of the place and circumstances of a trauma from his ongoing memory, resulting in a temporary mental escape from the fear and pain of the trauma and, in some cases, a memory gap surrounding the experience. Because this process can produce changes in memory, people who frequently dissociate often find their senses of personal history and identity are affected. Most clinicians believe that dissociation exists on a continuum of severity. This continuum reflects a wide range of experiences and/or symptoms. At one end are mild dissociative experiences common to most people, such as daydreaming, highway hypnosis, or "getting lost" in a book or movie, all of which involve "losing touch" with conscious awareness of one's immediate surroundings. At the other extreme is complex, chronic dissociation, such as in cases of Dissociative Disorders, which may result in serious impairment or inability to function.
A perfect example of DID is described in a CNSNews.com Commentary published May 25, 2004 “Female Desire and Islamic Trauma.” The article details the collective psychological impact of the pictures from Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. The author states that these pictures have “touched such a nerve in the Muslim world” that one analyst said that the rape pictures "would equal a nuclear explosion" when they were seen in Muslim countries. The question of why such an extreme reactions raises the delicate topic of sex in Muslim-Western relations. Clearly, Westerners and Muslims entertain vastly different perspectives about female sexuality. Considering the Muslim reputation for strange and archaic customs, it is ironic to note that Islamic civilization not only portrays women as sexually desirous, but it sees them as more passionate than men. Indeed, this twisted belief has determined the place of women in traditional Muslim life.
But In the Islamic view, Muslims generally believe female desire to be so much greater than the male equivalent that the woman is viewed as the hunter and the man as her passive victim. If believers feel little distress about sex acts as such, they are obsessed with the dangers posed by women. So strong are her needs thought to be, she ends up representing the forces of unreason and disorder. Women's rampant desires and irresistible attractiveness gives them a power over men that even rivals God's. She must be contained, for her unbridled sexuality poses a direct danger to the social order. (Symbolic of this, the Arabic word fitna means both civil disorder and beautiful woman.)
In the Islamic mind, even their women are an enemy because of their imagined power. This, these Muslim adherents are “taught’ buy their religion. This is a classic example of mind, or thought control. In radical Islam as in various other belief systems, programs are aimed at destabilizing participants' sense of self, sense of reality, and values, promote conformity, compliance, and the adoption of specific attitudes and behaviors desired by the controllers. Mind or thought control/thought reform is accomplished through the use of psychological and environmental control processes that in the case of Radical fundamentalism depend on physical and psychological coercion. But this is mind or thought control we can clearly recognize to be a form of oppression. Today, throughout the world, thought reform programs are sophisticated, subtle, and insidious.
And this how the chaos of our time has been accomplished… through hypnosis and mind control. To be continued…
