Engineering Consent

Engineering Consent

….and now back to our regularly scheduled programming………..

Well it sure has been a week, or soon to say “Quite a Year”! (But I’ll save those thoughts and salutations till Saturday’s Post) With so much provocative thoughts and crafted writing on subjects that affect the “modern” worldview, from technology to television to governmental reeducation camps I’ve decided to postpone my post on Progress until giving it a thorough rework, admen and gutting.

Going from Herrick’s “Enlightening” Post to Chad’s Book Review and follow up comments by The Missouri Rev, on to today. I found an article while researching, and though I retained a few ‘clips’, which I’ll post, I lost the original authorship to the words. The article it’s self was a bit ‘unnerving’ in a sense as it was a “bit out there”, but the substance was logical and progressive. After that, I was reading KSmilkmaid’s writings from today and went to the manufacturer’s manual for some technical advice and spent some time conversing with His utmost. For those who like acronyms, I am a firm believer in the Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. Fortunate for me it was a warm day here in NY for December and I headed out back to the soil and did a little dressing up of the previous seasons stalks still remaining in the earth, mended the fence that had “taken some wind” and stacked some firewood by the back door.

There is not a thought of this earth that I would not trade for the time spent ‘not thinking’ while doing my labors of joy. It is meditation and rest for my mind, quiets my soul and fills my heart with gladness untold. You can not rent that at Blockbuster or find it on Channel 3, they won’t give you these moments in the practical before a test in the ‘Publik’ School and no technology outside of my simple and worn Husky assistant cutting stalk & twine could better make my day complete.

We owe it to our posterity to pass a long not just in writing but in deed our love for simplicity and the life worth living. (Philippians 4:8)

Here’s the Clips:

“Why do countless American people go along with the War on Iraq? Why do so many people call for a police state control grid? A major component to a full understanding of why this kind of governmental and corporate corruption is to discover the modern science of mind control and social engineering. It's baffling to merely glance at the stacks of documentation that this world government isn't being constructed for the greater good of humanity. Although there are a growing number of people waking up the reality of our growing transparent soft cage, there seems to be just enough citizens who are choosing to remain asleep. Worse yet, there are even those who were at least partially awake at one time but found it necessary to return to the slumber of dreamland. This is no accident; this is a carefully crafted design. The drive to dumb down the populations of planet earth is a classic art that existed before the United States did. One component to understanding and deciphering the systems of control is to become a student of the magicians of influence and propaganda. In order to defeat our enemies (or dictators), its imperative that we understand how they think and what they believe in.”

“Our founding fathers faced enormous challenges in the formation of this country and its bill of rights. One challenge was laying down the groundwork or a free society without knowing what kind of technological advances would be made. Who would have guessed in those times that we needed an article in the bill of rights that specifically prohibits the government and it's associates from engaged in mind control or thought control. The closest item that promises our protection from the government is the 4th Article in The Bill of Rights which states, "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." Like many are now beginning to note, the US Constitution and its Bill of Rights are merely given lip service by our supposedly elected officials.

One of the most common examples of mind control in our so-called free and civilized society is the advent and usage of the television set. This isn't to say that all things on TV are geared towards brainwashing you. They're not. But most of the programming on television today is run and programming by the largest media corporations that have interests in defense contracts, such as Westinghouse (CBS), and General Electric (NBC). This makes perfect sense when you see how slanted and warped the news is today. Examining the conflicts of interest is merely glancing at the issue, although to understand the multiple ways that lies become truth, we need to examine the techniques of brain washing that the networks are employing.”

”Experiments conducted by researcher Herbert Krugman reveal that when a person watches television, brain activity switches from the left to the right hemisphere. The left hemisphere is the seat of logical thought. Here, information is broken down into its component parts and critically analyzed. The right brain, however, treats incoming data uncritically, processing information in wholes, leading to emotional, rather than logical responses. The shift from left to right brain activity also causes the release of endorphins, the body's own natural opiates--thus, it is possible to become physically addicted to watching television, a hypothesis borne out by numerous studies which have shown that very few people are able to kick the television habit. It's no longer an overstatement to note that the youth today that are raised and taught through network television are intellectually dead by their early teens. The dumbing down of humanity is represented by another shift, which occurs in the brain when we watch television. Activity in the higher brain regions (such as the neo-cortex) is diminished, while activity in the lower brain regions (such as the limbic system) increases.”

According to this site:


the title and author of the original article is:

Mass Mind Control
Through Network Television
Are Your Thoughts Your Own?

By Alex Ansary

Outside The Box

I don't know about the DoD tie-in, but I certainly agree that the TV is a tool that, whether intentional or not, lulls the masses to sleep and shapes their opinions and world view. Our decision to disconnect from the "Babylon Box" as Doug Phillips likes to call it, was one of the most important changes we made in our family.

Thanks for the source reference; I’m somewhat of a skeptic when it comes to all the mass conspiracy theory touted in cyberspace. Though much like the sources of food we consume, the information we take in through the eye gate is shall we say “food for thought”.

Neil Postman’s Amusing Ourselves to Death is an interesting read for a view of culture and televisions effect through media ‘manipulation’ of society and events that shape the world we live in.
