10 methods of manipulating human consciousness
Avram Noam Chomsky is a professor of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the largest intellectual of Western civilization, who has made a revolutionary breakthrough in his field. Philosopher, scientist, psychologist, political activist, fighter against world violence. The New York Times Book Review once wrote: “Judging by the energy, scope, novelty and influence of his ideas, Noam Chomsky is arguably the most important of today’s intellectuals.” Noam Chomsky compiled a list of 10 methods of manipulating human consciousness used by politicians, authorities and the media of the whole world, in which he reveals the real mechanisms for the formation of “public consent”, universal “approval” among the population. Read – and you will immediately understand everything!
1. Distraction. The main element of managing society is to divert people’s attention from important problems and decisions made by the ruling circles by constantly saturating the information space with insignificant messages. The method of distraction is very important in order to prevent citizens from gaining important knowledge in the field of modern finance, economics, psychology, neurobiology, cybernetics. Instead, the information space is filled with the news of sports, show business, mysticism and other informational components based on relic human instincts from erotica to hard pornography and from everyday soap stories to dubious ways to make quick and easy money.
2. Problem – reaction – solution. A problem is being created that is designed to provoke a certain reaction among the population, so that it itself requires the adoption of measures that are necessary for the ruling circles. For example, organize a spiral of violence in cities or bloody terrorist attacks, so that citizens demand the adoption of laws to strengthen security measures and pursue policies that infringe on civil liberties. Or cause some kind of economic, terrorist or man-made crisis to force people in their minds to take measures to eliminate its consequences, albeit in violation of their social rights, as a “necessary evil”. It must be understood that crises themselves are not born.
3. Graduation. To achieve the adoption of some unpopular measure, it is enough to introduce it gradually, day after day, year after year. It was in this way that fundamentally new socio-economic conditions (neoliberalism) were imposed globally in the 1980s and 1990s. Minimizing state functions, privatization, insecurity, instability, mass unemployment, a salary that no longer provides a decent life. If all this happened at the same time, it would surely have led to a revolution.
4. Deferral of execution. Another way to push an unpopular decision is to present it as “painful and necessary” and to obtain at the moment the consent of citizens to implement it in the future. It is much easier to accept any sacrifice in the future than in the present. Firstly, because it will not happen immediately. Secondly, because the bulk of the people are always inclined to cherish naive hopes that “tomorrow everything will change for the better” and that those victims that are demanded of him can be avoided. This gives citizens more time to get used to the thought of change and to accept them humbly when the time comes.
5. Infantilization of the people. Most propaganda speeches aimed at the general public use such arguments, characters, words, and intonation as if we were talking about school-aged children with developmental delays or mentally disabled individuals. The more someone tries to mislead the listener, the more he tries to use infantile speech turns. Why? If someone addresses a person as if he is 12 years old, then, due to suggestibility, the response or reaction of that person will also lack a critical assessment, which is typical for children.
6. Emphasis on emotions. Impact on emotions is a classic neuro-linguistic programming technique aimed at blocking people’s ability to rational analysis, and ultimately to the ability to critically interpret what is happening.
On the other hand, the use of the emotional factor allows you to open the door to the subconscious in order to instill thoughts, desires, fears, fears, coercions or sustainable patterns of behavior there. Spells about how cruel terrorism, how unfair the government, how hungry and humiliated suffer, leave behind the scenes the true causes of what is happening. Emotions are the enemy of logic.
9. The cultivation of guilt. Another task is to make a person believe that only he is guilty of his own misfortunes that occur due to a lack of his mental capabilities, abilities or efforts. As a result, instead of rebelling against the economic system, a person begins to engage in self-abasement, blaming himself for everything, which causes a depressed state, leading, among other things, to inaction. A classic example is the replication of the phrase “the people have the government that they deserve.” This statement is objectively false, but fully consistent with Chomsky’s theory.
10. Excellent knowledge of human nature. Over the past 50 years, advances in the development of science have led to the formation of a growing gap between the knowledge of ordinary people and the information that the ruling classes possess and use. Thanks to biology, neurobiology and applied psychology, the system has at its disposal advanced knowledge about a person in the field of both physiology and the psyche. The system managed to learn more about an ordinary person than he knows about himself. This means that in most cases the system has more power and more control over people than themselves.
All that is called “liberal democracy” is actually unscrupulous manipulation. Democracy is not the power of the people, it is the power of the democrats.
