Conditioned consciousness

Our compliance with the current political economy is assured through control of our world view. Daily Pickings often refers to Century of the Self, a BBC series which explains how mass psychology is used to transform human beings with needs, into "consumers" with "choices" and desires. David DeGraw, in Part 2 of his book, The Economics of Revolution, explains the techniques used by the ruling clique (RC) to obtain our willing consent to abuse and enslavement, as they amass greater wealth and power.

Transcend Conditioned Consciousness by David DeGraw (H/T)

To subdue the enemy without fighting is the highest skill - Sun Tzu, The Art of War

The Jesuit claim "Give me the child for seven years, and I will give you the man" is premised on the conviction that character is moulded in the first years of life. Mass conditioning goes further, turning us into Pavlov's people. Hence our acceptance of bombing and killing of those who we've been trained to view as less important and whose death barely affects us.

Only by breaking free from our conditioned world view can we see the world as it is, rather than how we've been trained to see it.

Controlling people is not enough. Controlling the whole country is much more effective and lucrative:

While agree with both Janos and Clive,in my view the attack on the Education system is part of a deliberate plan to control and ensure a "passive" population. They have calculated that there will be some who they won't be able to "conditioned" but they will be able to live with that as they have other measures to control these group: viz the legal system that they control. Their success in preventing the majority of Scottish people in voting YES is shows that their propaganda machine is very effective. Another of their success is the turn around of both MPs and Public opinion in supporting the bombing of ISIS ( Iraq ). Syria was not mentioned by Cameron & Milliband before the Commons vote. However, they are now saying that Syria is also their target.

It is clearly apparent that they have built an "arsenal" of tools to condition and control the majority of the population.

So how do we counteract that should be the question and answers are urgently needed before they plunge us into a more deadly cycle of wars.

Quoting Janos Abel:
So here is one "impossible" task---the root-and-branch transformation of the education system--- that must be attempted because it is necessary...not because it is possible.
Agreed Janos, essential.

I think it is important to realize that we have compulsory universal education as a social institution.

This institution guarantees that the world view favoured by the ruling class is adopted by every new generation.

So here is one "impossible" task---the root-and-branch transformation of the education system--- that must be attempted because it is necessary...not because it is possible.
