"The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed." —Stephen Banta
Balk if you wish, but the reality of being controlled by “outside forces” is very real. Indeed, some of those who believe in “mind control” are characterized as people who are immersed in “conspiracy theories” and there are those who are genuinely psychotically paranoid, clinically defined as “delusional.” However, the concept of exerting controls over the mind are exemplified by Descartes' "Cogito ergo sum," i.e. "I think therefore I am." To be human is to be a thinking being. If we are to survive as a nation you must recognize that it is thought itself that is the engine of society and this is why what we think is under siege. In effect, the palpable conflict we witness daily, external vs. internal (self control) mind control is the unrecognized source of the “culture wars” being waged for the minds and souls of ALL people.
During the Korean War we first heard of brain-washing when captured military personnel were submitted to brutal communist conditioning techniques aimed at making them betray their country. During World War Two the Japanese dropped leaflets on U.S. military bases to demoralize the troops. I have seen one which portrays a soldier in a fox hole while his wife back home is making love to a "draft dodger" with joyous abandon. These early efforts to influence minds, although unsophisticated, were marginally effective. To define “mind control” is easy: Mind control is accomplished through a systematic attempt to modify or change perceptions and thus influence or change allegiances. The Trojan Horse is a perfect example of how deception was used to exert subtle control over the minds of warring enemies.
It is the myth of the Trojan War. The myth holds that the Greek siege of Troy had lasted for ten years. The Greeks devised a brilliant ruse - a giant hollow wooden horse. It was built by Epeius and filled with Greek warriors led by Odysseus. While the rest of the Greek army appeared to leave, the Trojans accepted the horse as a peace offering. A Greek spy, Sinon, convinced the Trojans the horse was a gift despite the warnings of Laocoon and Cassandra. The Trojans celebrated wildly believing they had won, and when the Greeks emerged from the horse, the whole city was in a drunken stupor. The Greek warriors opened the city gates to allow the rest of the army access and the city was ruthlessly pillaged - all the men were killed and all the women taken into slavery. Based on this mythological episode, we get the term, Trojan horse. Today, the enemy is still inside the Trojan Horse, but the appearance has changed to reflect our current social structure.
We are as the bible says ‘struggling not with flesh and blood, but with principalities and powers’ and this is why you must recognize what is at the core of propaganda, mind control, and mental slavery that we continually struggle with, not only in each of our personal lives, but also in the geo-political realm.
Western psychiatry is complicit with a clear and present danger to America. A perfect example is psychiatry's denial of the mind-control tool called the Stockholm Syndrome, which sent Patty Hearst to prison for being the instrument of a crime she did not commit willingly. We've also seen it in the case of Elizabeth Smart – who when first confronted by police after eight months of captivity wouldn't give her real name at first, but rather the name her kidnappers had given her. The term Stockholm Syndrome was coined in explaining the bizarre phenomenon of hostages bonding with their captors that occurred at a 1973 bank holdup in Stockholm, Sweden, when two men held four people hostage for six days. Because of the extreme state of duress and the associated emotional trauma, the hostages ultimately converted to the side of their captors and came to regard the police as the enemy, and their captors as their protectors. One of the hostages reportedly became engaged to one of her captors. Like most such phenomena, what seems obvious in extreme cases (such as those involving hostage-taking and overt criminality) becomes blurred and nearly invisible in its more subtle everyday forms.
I assert that, the Stockholm Syndrome, in a subtle way is today a full-blown epidemic, affecting literally billions of individuals worldwide. The proliferation of misguided, anti-American students, drugged-out and dumbed-down kids, and overflowing prisons and mental health issues are all due in large part to decades of a subversive and destructive public school system as well as increasingly corrosive media/Hollywood propaganda.
These influences that literally equate to “brainwashing” have systematically and purposefully worked together, over time, to alter the loyalties of many Americans whose natural inclination to bond with God, family and country have been replaced by bizarre, newly forged bonds to strange philosophies, self-destructive behaviors, and codependence upon malevolent experts and leaders.
To be reclaim our civilization the issues you must answer are:
Are we under “mind attack” and if so, can we regain control
over our minds? YES!
2- Is it possible that there is an oppressor, and oppressed relationship existing in our lives through our emotions? YES!
3- Is it possible to free humans from the induced negative personal and social patterns of thought and actions? YES!
