Holy shit! To stumble into this while I’m in the mood of creating a dream of what could be… what an odd turn of the fates to find a book talking about the exact feelings I have word for word and precicely at the moment I’m feeling it hahahaha
“To the prison born
There are none so enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free.
Then a few people wish to control and direct a mass of humanity, there are certain key structures that have to be in place. These are the same whether you are seeking to manipulate an individual, family, tribe, town, country, continent, or planet.
First you have to set the “norms”, what is considered right and wrong, possible or impossible, sane or insane, good and bad. Most of the people will follow those norms without question because of the baa-baa mentality, which has prevailed within the collective human mind for at least thousands of years. Second, you have to make life very unpleasant for those few who challenge your imposed “norms”.
The most effective way to do this is to make it, in effect, a crime to be different. So those who beat to a different drum, or voice a different view, version of “truth” and lifestyle, stand out like a black sheep in the human herd. You have already conditioned that herd to accept your norms as reality and so, in their arrogance and ignorance, they then ridicule or condemn those with a different spin on life. This pressurizes them to conform and serves as a warning for those others in the herd who are also thinking of breaking away. There is a Japanese saying that goes: Don’t be a nail that stands out above the rest because that’s the first one to get hit.
This creates a situation fundamental to the few controlling the many in which the masses police themselves and keep each other in line. The sheep become the sheepdog for the rest of the herd.* It is like a prisoner trying to escape while the rest of his cellmates rush to stop him. If that happened we would say the prisoners were crazy, how could they do that?
* I know that strictly speaking the collective word for sheep is flock and not herd, but I prefer herd so sod convention.
But humans are doing precisely this to each other every day by demanding that everyone conform to the norms to which they blindly conform. This is nothing less than psychological fascism - the thought police with agents in every home, everywhere. Agents so deeply conditioned that most have no idea they are unpaid mind controllers. “I’m just doing what’s right for my children" I hear them say.
No, what you have been programmed to believe is right for them and the belief, also, that only you know best. I remember debating with a former Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom at the Oxford Union debating society and he simply could not see a difference between education and indoctrination. It was a wonder to behold.
We see this same theme in our daily experiences of people in uniform and others from the masses who are promoted to power over the masses. It’s summed up by the satirical version of the British Labour Party song,The Red Flag, which goes:
"The working class can kiss my arse, I’ve got the foreman’s job at last."
This is all part of the divide and rule strategy so vital to ensuring that the herd will police itself. Everyone plays a part in everyone else’s mental, emotional, and physical imprisonment. All the controllers have to do is pull the right strings at the right time and make their human puppets dance to the appropriate tune.
This they do by dictating what is taught by what we bravely call “education” and what passes for “news” through the media they own. In this way they can dictate to the unthinking, unquestioning, herd what it should believe about itself, other people, life, history, and current events. Once you set the norms in society, there is no need to control every journalist or reporter or government official. The media and the institutions take their “truth” from those same norms and therefore ridicule and condemn by reflex action anyone who offers another vision of reality.
Once you control what is considered “normal” and possible, the whole system virtually runs itself. ”
….. HOLY SHIT! LOL
