How do you control a nation when its citizens are well educated and conscious of their responsibilities? The answer is you don’t. When people are well educated and well informed they are hard to fool, therefore they will not allow anyone to control them.
So; how do you control a nation? How do you bend it to your will? Well, to begin the process, the nation’s educational system must be undermined. Its values must be destroyed. A way to confuse and to entertain the mind of the people must be found. Is it possible that this was done to us?
There are so many divisions generated trough the press, society in general, religious beliefs and the educational system that it’s a wonder that this nation still functions. You can be a Democrat, a Republican, a man, a woman, homosexual, old, young, middle age, from many nationalities and so on. Nowadays you could be from the despised poor or a Latino and feel in your bones what discrimination is like.
On top of that we are given other things to keep our minds occupied. It’s a re hatch of the three “B’s” used by the Spanish Empire to keep their population under control. They stood for: Baile, which is dance (in dance sex was included); Bebida, which refers to drinking (this includes drugs) and Baraja, which includes all kinds of gambling. To all this I would add Bochinche, which refers to the vicious babblings common to the busybodies in the population when they discuss the lives of the people around them but, today would include all the talk about actors, politicians and whoever holds the public interest. Keep the people entertained and they will not be able to focus on what their government is doing. Keep them consumed in hate and in fear and you can declare war on anybody without meaningful public opposition.
I would say that this was done to us. Perhaps this is one of the reasons people live secluded lives here. It is hard to get along with anybody when our minds are so polluted by the junk we are fed over the news by politicians, so called experts and even by religious leaders.
Of course, when a person speaks of this, if he finds a place where he can do so, he is looked at as if he were a nut case. The first thing the person will be hit with is the idea that what is being discussed should be considered a conspiracy theory and so it’s something everyone should ignore and laugh at but; what is a conspiracy if not a game that people play?
