There are two sayings that one hears throughout life. One being “ignorance is bliss” and the other “knowledge is power” I had never paid much head to either of these sayings until doing a bit of research and discovering that we are “schooled” into being ignorant. This is not due the teachers, assuming the majority of them go into the field wanting to be positive and helpful; it is due to the curriculum. Our Government adopted a system developed in Prussia in the late 1800’s. This was done to accommodate the need for factory workers (at the time, most people were self-sufficient and not interested in factory work & that needed to change) as well as a way of controlling the knowledge base and mindset of the general public. We have become pawns in a game which most are unaware is even being played.
Carnegie, Rockefeller and Ford decided that “helping” the country develop a united school system would be a great way to separate the generations and prepare the “students” for working within their factory systems. They also developed the teacher’s pension system as leverage. Basically stating should you follow this system, we will provide for you this package too.
School: I was going to place the dictionary’s definition of school. In this dictionary the definitions take up a third of a column, which I found a bit surprising. Not as surprising, Education is mentioned only once as a side note following “formal instruction”. School is also used to describe a group of fish, when one changes direction, they all move in unison. [Such cases of words with a duel meaning are a way of those that be, to hide things in plain sight. The more research done, the more obvious this becomes.]
John Taylor Gatto has a very informative documentary “The ultimate history lesson.” www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQiW_I848t8 His explanation of the how, why, and when our current indoctrination system, begins in part two: www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4_KjUiqg0Q or given in a more direct approach via a seminar called “The scientific management of children” which can be listened to at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KZvOWrT9h4 along with his other related youtube items.
Should you be interested, Cheryl Iserbyt- (who worked for Reagan) brought this information out in the 1980’s. Her version includes more political information; “The deliberate dumbing down of America” can be viewed at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=69HqxE74P5w
Now, with this information one would most likely become upset. This brings me back to the sayings, specifically knowledge is power. There is a difference between ignorance and nescience, my most recent Webster’s dictionary doesn’t have nescient listed . Nescience is defined as not knowing because the information is not available (at all). Ignorance is defined as lack of knowledge, education etc, although it is available! In other words, to ignore the information. As mentioned above, choosing what information to provide is what our government indoctrination programs referred to as schooling. It is my position that we are living in the new age of enlightenment. While the internet remains uncensored, we have the ability to gain knowledge and find out what the TRUTH about “history” and how the world today is run, although we will need to do it on our own.
MIND MANIPULATION (1) #2
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.” Quotation coming from Edward Bernays in his 1928 book Propaganda.
“If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without them knowing it.” -Edward Bernays, (Propaganda 1928, p.71)
“The biggest problem in today’s world is that people’s perception of reality is compulsively filtered through the screening mesh of what they want and do not want to be true.” Quotation by Travis Walton, author of “Fire in the sky”
“A true zombie is nothing more than an unconscious being apathetically and lifelessly lumbering across the planet buying and consuming everything in its path, unsatisfied, unfulfilled, anxious and unstill.” -Judith Froemming
This was one of the more disturbing truths to discover. The control of mass consciousness & knowledge has been used since antiquity. Julis Caesar chastised one of his men for teaching a slave to read. He basically stated: Should you educate him, he will come to realize he does not need to be a slave. The everyday individual is a mere pawn in a game which most don’t realize is being orchestrated. We assume what we are told via mass media is factual. We have conversation with friends and family, believing what they say to be true, even after hearing “they say” or “I heard”. Critical thinking, logic and common sense have all but been removed from today’s society.
Today’s mind control is done primarily through world-wide mass media, (print, visual and auditory delivery) of which 90% are owned by five people. (www.corporations.org/media/) Not only is it accomplished through censorship and advertising, but also subliminally through most TV shows and movies. Research published by a group of evolutionary psychologists from the University of New Mexico, in 2007 paper, state the subconscious part of the brain processes 12 million bits of information every second, rather than the conscious part that is chugging along at a mere 40 bits of information per second. http://michaelgarner.org/category/visual-perception . This particular ratio seems to be disagreed on, but let us agree that the subconscious mind obtains far more information than the conscious.
