It was worth it just to learn some sleight-of-hand…
First, I would like to thank Michelle Malkin, without whom I just wouldn’t have known what to post this evening and I really wanted to post something. In this case she was kind enough to turn her army of blonde Texas militia wives loose on someone I respect and like, and so. I mean where else can you see pro-Nazi concentration camp support spouted from a female Asian mouth? She is the quintessential self-hating social dominating reactionary sociopath leading so many to their doom that it’s practically biblical.
Of course there is similar on the “other right,” that is among Democrats. Because both are far right of center. They just are. With Republicans it tends to be about hating the other group and with Democrats it tends to be about loving unquestionably the Superstar leader. Though members of both parties also exhibit the opposite: Sarah Palin Superstar and some really awful things have been said about people on the right from the left as well.
With that out of the way, at least partially, the point of the post is to draw attention to a new tab at top labeled Navy “Mind Control” Paper. Now, wait. This paper was actually written at Stanford and contains so many good bits it becomes difficult to pick a few as teasers. Commissioned secretly, I take it, by the Navy’s version of CIA’s various technical offices, the ONR, or Office of Naval Research. It rejects the MKULTRA tech and drug style stuff in favor of sociology and psychology as the best form of controlling behavior. Does that sound at all familiar? It should.
Here are a few of the items discussed:
A funny con artist ploy called the Hard of Hearing ploy which I had never heard before;
Bay of Pigs;
The question of asking the question, “How many bombs do we drop?” as opposed to “Should we be dropping bombs at all?”;
A quote from Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard;
and so much more!
Plus it’s got a cool-sounding spy number: “ONR Technical Report Z-79-01”! Cooooool…buh…bluh…barf.
Let’s talk nature for a moment, and evolution. Basically, the reason we have both predators and prey still existing–because otherwise there would only be predators because they would have eaten all of the prey long ago–is because the prey have adapted strategies though trial and error to survive. Rabbits breed quickly, frequently, and have a short gestation period as compared to some other mammals. They likewise have developed a sense of hypervigilance, which is what the paper actually suggests in order to not get roped in to cults, disinformation campaigns, attempting to argue stoopid-beside-the-point-questions, and even quotes rape centers and suggests breaking with social norms for safety. While the main focus is on not getting hornswoggled, it almost becomes a good guide for activists and whistleblowers as well on when and how to challenge authority.
The problem with hypervigilance, of course, is when it becomes its own end as opposed to a means. “I won’t be duped,” becomes so important that we wind up distrusting anyone and everything. The paper addresses this as well. We have to adapt without becoming paranoid. Not easy when the ghost of J. Edgar Hoover has possessed so many among our elite.
Of course yet another underlying point is, again like the SERE program and torture being reverse-engineered, so has this, such as with MINERVA. The tactics that these psychos use to get us all fighting amongst each other, to see ourselves at the 1% even though we are not, to think that everyone else thinks the way we do even they don’t, etc. It’s all in there. Emotional contagion, peer pressure, group think, etc.
There’s something simple and “of course” about the paper, but for people who think African Americans seeking justice, or Palestinians, or anyone who is being oppressed automatically means an attack on white people or Jews, the paper serves as a primer for deprogramming oneself.
Think of it as a 12-Step for Stepford Wives.
