The United Cargo Cult Of America: Deprogramming The Human Mind - Part 1
Pleas excuse any stray typos, spell check is an evil imp. We will correct them as we find them. Thank you. AAMorris Staff.
Exit (Counseling) Stage Right - The Do It Yourself Approach:
We have been subjected to a centuries long system of what can only be termed mind control.
The pyramid system of social control has existed as long as human culture, as we know it, has.
The Royalty could give up their claims and the system and its long term detrimental effect on human thinking would still be a problem. From wage slave to Queen, we are all victims of this historicalstanding confidence game and racket, some chains are paper and digital and some are made of gold.
It does not matter if the Royals are indeed figure heads or not. It does not matter what we call the elite who run things and it does not matter who they are. The system itself is the problem. Witting and unwitting minds serve its inhuman agenda.
THE NEWS IS A RELIGION
We ourselves need to be ‘deprogrammed’. Color Television and now the internet, are the medium of Government. Government as we know it today would not exist as it does, were it not for the power of the full color audio visual experience. The Governmental beast would never have grown into the monster it is without the medium of television, the News and the talk shows. These latter formats are an overlooked neo-religion. We take for granted the power the talk show host and the newscaster has over defining the boundaries of our own imaginations. This is the intended role of the journalist. The modern journalist have replaced the Rabbi and Priest as the guardians of the boundaries of reason.
This is how we end up believing and taking for granted so many assumptions we should not.
The Mainstream News Media Filters & Distorts Reality
The prior media still exist, radio, film, print, word of mouth (hearsay) are still used today to manipulate social opinion and behavior. We have all been subjected to various schemes and layers of ‘mind control’ types of techniques and strategies. We are encouraged to engage in various socially reinforced fads, fashions, political and other artificial, prepackaged and pre approved, products of this very fake and commercial world we live in. In fact, is it even possible to escape the artificial world of commerce? Can a person really live off the land free from tax, fee and fine? Can we do that here in America the so-called home of the free? Are we really more free today, despite all the wonderful social change? What an adult does with their own body and with other like minded adults is their business. Forcing one’s will on others is the crime. This is what Governments and other forms of institutional based reasoned systems do. This is the crime these institutions are guilty of committing.
We areSupposed to Mind & Judge Someone Else’s Personal Behavioral Choices - Never Mind Tolerance & a Common Sense Application of The Golden Rule
This is the very social behavior these systems promote. These same systems promote a busy body mind the other person’s business mentality that too many of us are quick to mimic for reasons both altruistic and selfish. Too many fees and fines and laws and restrictions are manufactured with the best intent of shaping a better world and the effect ends up being one that does nothing to achieve that end. We only end up feeding a commercialized beast of one kind or another. The Drug War is a fine example of where this reasoning leads. Young men and women stilldie from things like heroin overdoses, despite the eternal War On Drugs. They end up getting jailed and fined over personal choices and this is the real crime. The Drug War is all about profit and is of course a subject for a series of articles. All the laws in the world can not make up for education and a pay for prison and fine based approach does not serve the public at all. We end up jailing each other over personal behavior choices we have no right to. The Drug War is a prime example of the limited thinking and the lies we see promoted in the name of so-called safety. In fact the Federal Government claims the safe, medically beneficial and non toxic substance, Cannabis, is essentially a poison, this is demonstrably absurd. Peanuts cause more deaths than Cannabis ever has. Context matters. We need to realize we are free to decide what is and what is not medically beneficial for ourselves. We must learn to continue to educate ourselves and we must become our own individual authorities. The mainstream media, in all of its forms and by its very nature, encourages us to constantly seek empty external authority as the source of our own guidance. This is an obvious canard and one that really needs to be avoided.
Limit the Damage
We need limited and more local bureaucracies that work and are constituted for the public good. The current system is constituted for itself. The higher level governments, like all higher level institutions, exist more for indoctrination and social control than for any other reason. The oaths the elected politicians take are to protect the interests and existence of the Governments themselves and not the ‘country’ or people. The politician do no work for those of us int he mass public. This is why they say and do whatever they want and get away with it and why change that benefits the mass public is slow to take effect. Prejudice is encouraged as a simple divide and conquer strategy. The mainstream media itself, by way of the News and related talk shows, is guilty of presenting a very filtered an distorted picture of reality, clearly designed to divide and conquer the public. We are supposed to be afraid of the race war that is forever around the corner (every summer) and we are supposed to fear the police and the government itself. We are supposed to hate and despise each other over political choices and we are even supposed to get similarly worked up and divided over sporting events and other divisive team building endeavors that should be experienced as entertainment.
The entertainment media by itself is not much of a problem as the work is clearly fictional and highly subjective. It is when the entertainment media is experienced in the context of the rest of the media that it can reinforce the various distorted narratives that are presented as fact. Hollywood and related productions continue to promote various fictions as fact to this day. Things like human space exploration and other sorts of clearly illogical mainstream Cosmological nonsense is sold as fact by both Hollywood, the University system and cable networks like History and Discovery channel.
Why We Are Kept In the Dark
Hollywood can always find financing for World War Two and NASA and other sorts of so-called real News story based films, usually made by Clint Eastwood and starring Tom Hanks. If either of these two make a film sold as based on a true story, we know it is probably based on a fake or otherwise highly distorted news event, designed to presented an unrealistic view of reality. We are supposed to be kept dumbed down so we are easier to control.
The Yellow Blueprint
This is also why Yellow Journalism can be described as the blueprint for culture. As it turns out, ours is still a highly immature and juvenile (& global) culture. The modern news and the Governmental narratives have long followed this blueprint. History is filled with examples of cartoon reasoning presented as historical fact. History seems to be more myth and legend and propaganda than anything else. There is some truth mixed in with plenty of fiction. What most people do not understand is that the University system, like all other systems, does not exist to serve the interest of the mass public. Education is secondary to cultural indoctrination. This is why the official mainstream Cosmology and history is allowed to remain distorted and convoluted and absurd.
We know we are repetitive but we feel it important to stress the relevance of the Yellow Journalism definition. We can see how what we are told is reliable reporting is nothing but nonsense. In other words, modern journalism relies on these vert techniques. Watergate is a primary example of this.
Watergate appears to be another scripted event. The story is absurd and is the very stuff of a Yellow Journalist’s greatest dream. Watergate is the subject for another articles, but the supposed News story that broke the Nixon Presidency famously relied on an unnamed source with a name that references pornographic film. Today’s political headlines are no different.
Why Full Color Images Matter
"Color psychology is the study of hues as a determinant of human behavior. Color influences perceptions that are not obvious, such as the taste of food. Colors can also enhance the effectiveness of placebos. For example, red or orange pills are generally used as stimulants. Color can indeed influence a person; however, it is important to remember that these effects differ between people. Factors such as gender, age, and culture can influence how an individual perceives color. For example, males reported that red colored outfits made women seem more attractive, while women answered that the color of a male's outfit did not affect his attractiveness.
Color psychology is also widely used in marketing and branding. Many marketers see color as an important part of marketing because color can be used to influence consumers' emotions and perceptions of goods and services. Companies also use color when deciding on brand logos. These logos seem to attract more customers when the color of the brand logo matches the personality of the goods or services, such as the color pink being heavily used on Victoria's Secret branding. However, colors are not only important for logos and products, but also for window displays in stores. Research shows that warm colors tended to attract spontaneous purchasers, despite cooler colors being more favorable."
"Since color is an important factor in the visual appearance of products as well as in brand recognition, color psychology has become important to marketing. Recent work in marketing has shown that color can be used to communicate brand personality.
Marketers must be aware of the application of color in different media (e.g. print vs. web), as well as the varying meanings and emotions that a particular audience can assign to color. Even though there are attempts to classify consumer response to different colors, everyone perceives color differently. The physiological and emotional effect of color in each person is influenced by several factors such as past experiences, culture, religion, natural environment, gender, race, and nationality. When making color decisions, it is important to determine the target audience in order to convey the right message. Color decisions can influence both direct messages and secondary brand values and attributes in any communication. Color should be carefully selected to align with the key message and emotions being conveyed in a piece.
Research on the effects of color on product preference and marketing shows that product color could affect consumer preference and hence purchasing culture. Most results show that it is not a specific color that attracts all audiences, but that certain colors are deemed appropriate for certain products."
The Yellow Blueprint For Culture:
“Joseph Campbell defines yellow press newspapers as having daily multi-column front-page headlines covering a variety of topics, such as sports and scandal, using bold layouts (with large illustrations and perhaps color), heavy reliance on unnamed sources, and unabashed self-promotion. The term was extensively used to describe certain major New York City newspapers around 1900 as they battled for circulation.
Frank Luther Mott defines yellow journalism in terms of five characteristics:
- scare headlines in huge print, often of minor news
- lavish use of pictures, or imaginary drawings
- use of faked interviews, misleading headlines, pseudoscience, and a parade of false learning from so-called experts
- emphasis on full-color Sunday supplements, usually with comic strips
- dramatic sympathy with the "underdog" against the system.”
Cargo Culture is Our Global Culture
“Cargo cults are marked by a number of common characteristics, including a "myth-dream" that is a synthesis of indigenous and foreign elements; the expectation of help from the ancestors; charismatic leaders; and lastly, belief in the appearance of an abundance of goods.
The indigenous societies of Melanesia were typically characterized by a "big man" political system in which individuals gained prestige through gift exchanges. The more wealth a man could distribute, the more people in his debt, and the greater his renown. Those who were unable to reciprocate were identified as "rubbish men". Faced, through colonialism, with foreigners with a seemingly unending supply of goods for exchange, indigenous Melanesians experienced "value dominance". That is, they were dominated by others in terms of their own (not the foreign) value system; exchange with foreigners left them feeling like rubbish men.
Since the modern manufacturing process is unknown to them, members, leaders, and prophets of the cults maintain that the manufactured goods of the non-native culture have been created by spiritual means, such as through their deities and ancestors. These goods are intended for the local indigenous people, but the foreigners have unfairly gained control of these objects through malice or mistake. Thus, a characteristic feature of cargo cults is the belief that spiritual agents will, at some future time, give much valuable cargo and desirable manufactured products to the cult members.
Symbols associated with Christianity and modern Western society tend to be incorporated into their rituals; for example the use of cross-shaped grave markers. Notable examples of cargo cult activity include the setting up of mock airstrips, airports, offices, and dining rooms, as well as the fetishization and attempted construction of Western goods, such as radios made of coconuts and straw. Believers may stage "drills" and "marches" with sticks for rifles and use military-style insignia and national insignia painted on their bodies to make them look like soldiers, thereby treating the activities of Western military personnel as rituals to be performed for the purpose of attracting the cargo.“
We Need Our Own Mental "Exit Strategies".
Everyone who buys into the mythology of our collective global culture without thought is a victim of a very real 'brain washing' and cult thinking. The mythology promoted by the media in all of its various forms tends to reinforce the social control systems more so than not. Some things get through, but for the most part, the end result of all the commissioned art is that the mass public ends up still thinking and believing things that are clearly and demonstrably untrue as fact. Most in the mass public are unaware that history is more lie than not and that what most term "science" is not all it's made out to be. In fact what most call "science" is nothing but metaphysical mumbo jumbo nonsense and the stuff of yellow journal fantasy. The News and the talk shows clearly promote stories that do not answer the important questions of who, what, where, why, when and how. These stories tend to rely on yellow journalistic techniques and nothing else. In fact too many of the stories cannot be anything but scripted fictions. It's not that there are no real cases of violence or scandals, it's that the stories presented by the News tend to be little more than hearsay back ed up with illogical reasoning. There are usually flaws in the reporting that are obvious to those of us who are critical of the News.
We have been programmed to view the News without a critical mind and this is the mistake. When someone makes a claim it is on them to back that claim up. What we have been conditioned to accept as "News" is little more than nonsense more often than not.
We need to critically view the News media and to realize that most of the claims the News passes on are little more than the equivalent of shallow press releases. Most of the studies quoted and the stories reported on, are all taken out of context and so distorted that the result os the audience of this media end up with an incorrect view of reality and this too is a crime.
In other words, the News has an agenda. The News is not only interested in ratings, it is state run at the highest levels. The real agenda is to give us all a false and filtered impression of the world so we continue to support the numerous layers of government. We must continue to pay taxes, fees and fines and be willing to jail each other over personal behavior choices. We must think we need to pay for a military to protect us, when the truth is the threat is manufactured and mostly theater. We the public get blamed for everything from war to global warming and the fact is none of it is true.
Whatever environmental change that is or isn't happening would be due to the actions of big business and the decisions to fix that are out of our hands and in the hands of the same elite who control the entire system in the first place. We get blamed so we think it is human nature that is the problem. We are encouraged to confuse anger with war. A wife stabbing her husband as the result of an argument is one thing. An entire nation of people getting together and deciding to go and march off to fight another group of people is another. It is easier to go out and live off of the land, fishing, hunting and farming than it is to go to war. There is plenty of land out there. Those of us who live around urban areas have a distorted view of the world. The media promotes the idea that we have more power and control over nature than we really do.
“Deprogramming refers to coercive measures to force a person in a controversial belief system to change those beliefs and abandon allegiance to the religious, political, economic, or social group associated with the belief system. Methods and practices of self-identified "deprogrammers" have involved kidnapping, false imprisonment, and coercion, and sometimes resulted in criminal convictions of the deprogrammers. Classic deprogramming regimens are designed for individuals taken against their will, which has led to controversies over freedom of religion, kidnapping, and civil rights, as well as the violence which is sometimes involved.”
“As a technique, the deprogramming that has been practiced over the last half century has been typically commissioned by relatives, often parents of adult offspring, who objected to the subject's membership in an organization or group. It has been compared to exorcisms in both methodology and manifestation, and the process sometimes has been performed with tacit support of law enforcement and judicial officials. In response to a burgeoning number of new religious movements in the 1970s in the United States, the "father of deprogramming", Ted Patrick, introduced many of these techniques to a wider audience as a means to combat cults. Since then, deprogrammings have been carried out "by the thousands". For example, various atrocity stories served as justification for deprogramming of Unification Church members in the USA.”
“As a technique for encouraging people to disassociate with groups with whom they have as consenting adults chosen to associate, deprogramming is a controversial practice. Even some cult critics have denounced it on legal and ethical grounds.Similar actions, when done without force, have been referred to as "exit counseling". Sometimes the word deprogramming is used in a wider (and/or ironic or humorous sense), to mean the freeing of someone (often oneself) from any previously uncritically assimilated idea. According to Carol Giambalvo, "exit cousellors are usually former cult members themselves".”
1610s, "worship," also "a particular form of worship," from French culte (17c.), from Latin cultus "care, labor; cultivation, culture; worship, reverence," originally "tended, cultivated," past participle of colere "to till" (see colony). Rare after 17c.; revived mid-19c. with reference to ancient or primitive rituals. Meaning "a devotion to a person or thing" is from 1829.
Cult. An organized group of people, religious or not, with whom you disagree. [Rawson]
late 14c., "ancient Roman settlement outside Italy," from Latin colonia "settled land, farm, landed estate," from colonus "husbandman, tenant farmer, settler in new land," from colere "to cultivate, to till; to inhabit; to frequent, practice, respect; tend, guard," from PIE root *kwel- (1) "move round, turn about" (source also of Latin -cola "inhabitant;" see cycle (n.)). Also used by the Romans to translate Greek apoikia "people from home." Modern application dates from 1540s.
mid-15c., "the tilling of land," from Middle French culture and directly from Latin cultura "a cultivating, agriculture," figuratively "care, culture, an honoring," from past participle stem of colere "to tend, guard; to till, cultivate" (see colony). The figurative sense of "cultivation through education" is first attested c. 1500. Meaning "the intellectual side of civilization" is from 1805; that of "collective customs and achievements of a people" is from 1867.
For without culture or holiness, which are always the gift of a very few, a man may renounce wealth or any other external thing, but he cannot renounce hatred, envy, jealousy, revenge. Culture is the sanctity of the intellect. [William Butler Yeats]
Slang culture vulture is from 1947. Culture shock first recorded 1940. Ironic or contemptuous spelling kulchur is attested from 1940 (Pound), and compare kultur.
