They can scare us into a way of thinking through collapsing the economy, causing natural disasters or fake/planned/simulated terrorist attacks and they cover these topics almost to the exclusion of all others until the populace is thoroughly terrified. Then they produce shows to make us focus on what we don't have. Have you noticed the amount of entertainment shows that have cropped up that focus on money lately? Have you noticed that before 9/11 there were a ton of terrorist plot shows and movies? Have you noticed now the push for 2012 theories and alien/paranormal shows that are airing in abundance now?
Even the people who don't watch TV are affected by it. People take what their friends and family say and do into consideration. Whether you know it or not, the things people you care about are watching are affecting you in subtle ways. The scare tactics trickle down through our social system. Some things are already so firmly established that saying anything like what I'm saying now and will be saying is considered "crazy" by many. People are trained to have a closed mind! Look out for what is actually being said in commercials and shows. Consider why they choose some wordings over others. There are so many ingenious yet subtle devices being used.
Even our own language is used against us. Some words have double meanings for the purpose of clouding language. To make it difficult to oppose the system. Read George Orwell's 1984 and you'll know exactly what I mean. Look at that, the word "mean." It has two very different meanings. Coincidence? Look at all of your sentences and think about how the words are crafted to make it difficult to articulate thoughts against the system. It is very difficult to analyze a language using only that language as a tool. Think about this.
Not only do they control what we think through what we watch and through our friends and family, they control what we consume! Fluoride! The biggest prank of all. Look it up. We need it in our water, in our FOOD to keep our teeth healthy!? On top of the mouthwash, the floss and the fluoride fluoride sludge we use? Right! Of course we do! It certainly can't be something placed in our water supply (Something each and every single one of us use every single day) for any devious purpose! This shit gets into everything we consume. Our vegetables, our livestock, our juice, our soda, even most bottled "pure" water contains fluoride! Some companies even add more! Look up how toxic that is. Find out exactly what that shit does to our brains and bones. Look up what it does to babies. It's absurd that we allow this to happen!
What about the FDA? They control everything we consume and they are paid to keep the beneficial things illegal so other companies can make more money off of us. There are so many things that are illegal that shouldn't be! Do some research, please! This is an outrage. How can we stand to be ruled by a self interested organization? We let them decide what we're allowed to consume? They are paid by companies who want to make a profit off of us! It just doesn't make any sense.
Even the government is a self interested COMPANY. They are a corporation. We are here to feed it. They will keep us ignorant for as long as they can to remain what they are today. They control our lives completely and we do not even realize it. There is so much they don't tell us. We don't even question the government or the way it is run. Our democracy is run by a few hundred people who are all susceptible to bribes and self-interested motives and we don't seem to think there is anything wrong with it. Those who do don't even know how to oppose it. They have us fighting with ourselves, bickering and arguing about two main democratic parties when they're both a part of the whole. Neither side matters, no political parties matter. It's all a sham devised to make us fight and think we're making a difference when we're just playing with what they want.
The only thing I know we must do is get ANGRY. We are being controlled. We are being frightened and cornered. We are being harvested for work and for money. We need to get angry. GET MAD. It is not okay to treat human beings this way! We are sentient beings with rights! It is not okay to willfully keep the majority ignorant for superficial gains. This needs to stop. We need to collectively stand together and say WE'RE MAD AS HELL AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!
