The Psychology of Manipulation: 6 Lessons from the Master of Propaganda

I recently explored this topic in an essay about how occult rituals and predictive programming are used to manipulate the collective consciousness, influencing the thoughts, beliefs and actions of large groups of people, resulting in the creation of what occultists call “egregores”.

Here I have extracted some key insights from Bernays in an attempt to show how his book Propaganda is, in many ways, the playbook used by the globalist cryptocracy to process the group mind of the masses.

The night I met Hunter Biden: Mac Shop owner John Mac Isaac recounts fateful encounter in exclusive excerpt

…The 13-inch 2015 MacBook Pro was in slightly better shape. It could boot up, but the keyboard was unresponsive. I pulled out an external keyboard and asked for permission to log in.

Hunter started laughing.

“My password is f–ked up. Don’t be offended!” he said, before announcing that it was “analf–k69” or something to that extent. His inebriated condition made it difficult to understand is speech. My eyes widened a bit, and I told him that maybe it would be best if he tried to log in himself.

How and why China is doing much better than USA

[Important to read the following. It is a comment on an article in the Unz Review. It provides a brief overview of something deeply lacking in our society and in most in the world—a way to place the brightest, most talented and capable people at or near the top of society where, in the main, they will make better decisions than less talented and less intelligent people. Everything below this is a quote. ABN]

People go where they can exercise their talents to the fullest.

I emigrated to the US because grad schools here offered me opportunities that did not exist in my native Australia.

Now China’s crushing immature technologies like quantum communications, AI, supercomputing and utterly dominates every aspect of clean energy.

And they outspend us on R&D, big time. Biden’s promising $1.5 billion for quantum computing. Xi committed $10 billion.

We’ll never keep their best and brightest, the IQ 140+ crowd. China offers them unique opportunities.

Officials in China are held in much higher regard than dukes in the UK, and similarly descendents’ marriage prospects for generations.

These days, the smart kids choose administration or research, but the smartest choose both, because the selection committee (the opaquely named Organization Department) is looking for leaders who are empathic and intellectual geniuses.

Xi, for example grew up in a desperately poor village whose people cast their eyes down in his presence because he could read, and ate bark most winters. He visited and fretted about them until they started giving guided tours of where he lived with them, telling tales of his youth, and showing cracked, faded photos of him as a teenager.

Self-educated, he eventually got a (grudging) BSc in chemical engineering, from Peking University, and later, a PhD in rural marketization.

The #1 priority of the current 5 Year Plan is raising rural incomes through rural marketization.

In 2021, 28% of farmers’ profits came from direct sales to consumers. Billions of smartphones, millions of drones and thousands of miles of high speed rail let Beijingers choose oranges from the bough and receive them next morning.

China’s next president could be one of two current provincial governors. Both have physics PhDs. They previously ran the rocket and space programs, and now they’re ‘father and mother officials,’ to a hundred million people, and responsible for doubling everyone’s real wages of by 2031.

Where else can you exercise such talents?

“An enduring myth about the Soviet Union is that its economy collapsed under the burden of its military spending. This story allows America to congratulate itself on ‘winning’ the Cold War by driving it to collapse under the fiscal weight of the arms race. This is not true”

An enduring myth about the Soviet Union is that its economy collapsed under the burden of its military spending. This story allows America to congratulate itself on "winning" the Cold War by driving it to collapse under the fiscal weight of the arms race.

This is not true. (1/8)

In fact, the Soviet military industrial complex was by far the most cost effective and technologically sophisticated sector of the Soviet economy. The general academic consensus is that the Soviet Union had a comparative advantage in both military R&D and production. (2/8)

Mark Harrison, a economic historian who specializes in the Soviet Economy, wrote that nobody "saw the Soviet Union being crushed under an unbearable military burden." He furthermore deduced a counterintuitive motivation for Soviet secrecy about such matters. (3/8)

The Soviets were secretive about defense expenditures – not to hide a crushing fiscal burden, but actually to hide how cheaply they were able to make weapons! The Soviet state made a huge profit exporting weaponry, and did not wish to make known the size of the markup. (4/8)

I for one do not believe these mistakes were entirely innocent. I can relate to doctors in fields not closely related to covid being unwilling or unable to speak up. And I can relate to bureaucrats and political functionaries being afraid to speak up. Same for low-level hospital administrators, academics, and scientists. But people at or near the top of the food chain who banned early treatments, mandated vaccines, restricted hospital treatments, denied religious and other exemptions, wrote garbage “news” stories about all of this, you behaved very badly.

The Buddhist way out of this terrible karma you have incurred is: 1) publicly admit your mistakes; 2) apologize for your mistakes; 3) make amends for your mistakes as you are able and as are proportionate to the harm caused; 4) vow never to do anything like that again. Take your lumps, suffer for having violated your own conscience. Then, when all of this has been completed and you have done your best and your vow is strong, put it behind you and dwell on it no more. For many for whom the above is necessary, this period of remorse and self-examination should last at least a year or more. ABN

“This is a nightmare unfolding in slow motion. And this is the point where we are going to have to draw the line: No, Joe Biden you CAN’T have the federally funded Ministry of Truth. And no, Nina Jankowicz can’t run it. PERIOD… It’s not your country. You’re not even compos mentis and you don’t get to do this to a free people. PERIOD.” Tucker Carlson

“What you’re seeing is a full scale attack on free speech in a country that has been free for nearly 250 years. And it’s happening at the direction of the US government through a law enforcement agency.” ~TC

Compos mentis means “of sound mind.” Another great essay by Carlson. ABN

Poland does have legitimate historical claims on that region, though they gave those up at the fall of the Soviet Union. But they gave those claims up to the government of Ukraine which is now a mess, so what to make of it today? This is a daring move for Poland and may cause the war to widen, which may be precisely what the NATO cabal wants. If Ukraine eventually is divvied up among its present neighbors, that is not necessarily a bad thing. Expanding the war today or risking an attack on Poland itself, however, does not look like a good idea to me. ABN

Borgund Stave church, Norway

Built around 1180 and is dedicated to the Apostle Andrew. The church is exceptionally well preserved and is one of the most distinctive stave churches in Norway. Some of the finest features are the lavishly carved portals and the roof carvings of dragons’s heads. The stavchurches are Norway’s most important contribution to world architecture and Norway’s oldest preserved timber buildings. ~link

On April 16, 1943, Albert Hoffman inadvertently inhaled LSD vapors and: “felt himself becoming dizzy while working in his Sandoz lab with a couple of new chemical compounds. He suspected he had inhaled some solvent vapors and went home to lie down in a darkened room, at which point he ‘sank into a not unpleasant, intoxicated-like condition, characterized by an extremely stimulated imagination'”

Below are his notes, written some days later, describing the first human experience of LSD intoxication.

It was not all roses. More here: The World’s First-Ever Acid Trip Actually Kinda Sucked.

FLASHBACK 2016: Declassified Emails Reveal NATO Killed Gaddafi to Stop Libyan Creation of Gold-Backed Currency

Washington, D.C. –  In spite of French-led U.N. Security Council Resolution 1973 creating a no-fly zone over Libya with the express intent of protecting civilians, one of the over 3,000 new Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department on New Year’s Eve, contain damning evidence of Western nations using NATO as a tool to topple Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi. The NATO overthrow was not for the protection of the people, but instead it was to thwart Gaddafi’s attempt to create a gold-backed African currency to compete with the Western central banking monopoly.

The emails indicate the French-led NATO military initiative in Libya was also driven by a desire to gain access to a greater share of Libyan oil production, and to undermine a long term plan by Gaddafi to supplant France as the dominant power in the Francophone Africa region.
