American Culture: It's in the Ditch
American Culture: It’s in the Ditch
I am not a young man. But when I look in the rear-view mirror I can still see middle-age quite clearly, and it was during this period when I began to see it all come apart; the fracturing of the public mind, or what might be more correctly referred to as the collective psyche of the American public.
Psyche: 1. The human soul. 2. the mind esp., Psychiatry the mind considered as a subjectively perceived, functional entity, based ultimately on physical processes but with complex processes of its own; it governs the total organism and its interactions with the environment.
The above was taken from a physical book that we used to call a dictionary, and was printed in 1996, before the practice of “semantic redefinition” became widespread. Early examples of this practice can be found in Orwellian terms, such as “war is peace,” “freedom is slavery,” as well as “ignorance is strength” and has now escalated to utterly bizarre proportions in the present day, such as redefining what torture actually is when you get caught doing it in Iraq.
Notice that the dictionary states that the mind and the soul are the same thing; and that the mind, and thus physical outcomes of the mind, are based on physical processes and governs our interactions with our environment. It is on this premise that mind-control techniques are based, and can be used to restructure an entire society. And this has been done through physical processes that are technological in nature and have patent numbers assigned to them. You can look this stuff up and see for yourself. Additionally, we can apply this “mind and soul are the same thing” concept to the Christian belief of “Satan stealing your soul.” Colloquially speaking, we could equate Satan with things that are evil, and it seems to me that the people that implemented this “mind-control” program are rather devilish, and by controlling your mind they have stolen your soul. So, it is the same thing that the bible people tell you on TV every Sunday morning, it’s just that they did not state it very well. That will get you to come back next week…bring your checkbook. The cultural rot is everywhere we look and nothing is sacred.
Human beings can be trained, just as we train a dog, to react in certain ways to external stimuli without their full knowledge or awareness as to why they reacted they way they did. And when this happens what we have is: Pavlov’s Human.
Ivan Pavlov was a Russian academic of the early 20th century, and was doing research on the physiology of digestion using dogs as test subjects. It was in the course of this research that the “salivating dog” and the conditioned response became known. The dogs would begin to salivate at the mere presence of someone in a lab-coat or the ringing of a bell that had preceded feeding in the past, with no food being present.
In the process of this research the dogs had learned certain complex behaviors; it has been said that Pavlov loved his dogs and because of this they were very well trained. This is typical behavior for most dogs as they are simply returning the love shown to them in the only way they know how, which is obedience and a willingness or desire to please their master. Children are much the same. We can see a different version of this in adults with something called Stockholm Syndrome.
Then something very curious happened to Pavlov’s dogs. A rainstorm came upon the town and would not stop, and soon a nearby river crested its banks and began to flood the city streets. Water began to enter the laboratory were the dogs were kept and then began to flood the cages. The dogs became very alarmed as the water covered their paws and continued to rise, as there was no escape. By the time a research assistant arrived the dogs were in a panic. The water was chest deep and a few of the cages were floating. Some of the dogs had to be fully submerged in order to remove them from their cage; all of the dogs were traumatized by the event, and it was soon realized that the complex behaviors the animals had acquired had now been forgotten.
This gave us the term “brainwashing.”
Further observations of the dogs behavior revealed that some of the meek animals had become aggressive, and that formerly gregarious dogs had become withdrawn. Now a link between traumatic stress and memory loss had been established and it also became known that certain psychological stressors could be used to change or control behavior.
Pavlov’s discoveries did not go unnoticed. He was soon approached by Vladimir Lenin and was asked to use his knowledge to shape public behavior more in line with Communist thinking; to use these techniques to standardize the behavior of the Russian people, to make them all behave the same way. Lenin was not someone you turned down, and he made Pavlov the offer “that you cannot refuse.”
Pavlov was rewarded with very generous funding, political protection and a staff that soon grew to 350 people.
This is how it all began. From here all the techniques and processes to drive an entire culture off into the ditch were born.
Decades later the CIA picked up on these developing and evolving practices of social engineering and turned it into a highly sophisticated science. They learned that the mind has no firewall, and that men could deliberately be made to develop predesigned thoughts and behaviors under appropriately controlled environmental conditions. And that by applying these methods to the general public, belief systems of entire societies can be altered in a way that becomes self-perpetuating.
These practices began to be implemented on the American public in the early 1950’s and became more sophisticated as time passed. Take a look around you in present day culture…can you see it yet?
People my age have a rather unique view of the present day. We have lived on both sides of what I call the “digital divide.” When I was a small boy we only had one telephone in the house and it was on a shelf in the hallway. When it rang you had to walk across the room and into the hallway to answer it. And you did not know who was calling. High tech was a cord that would reach the bathroom. There were only six or seven channels on the TV and to change the station you had to get up and walk over there and spin the clucky tuner. It was a much simpler time.
We walked to school, and when school let out for the day we walked home. There was not a line of cars waiting to pick us up and our parents did not feel there was any danger to our safety by being on our neighborhood streets in broad daylight. We did not wear plastic bicycle helmets or knee-pads because these things did not exist. When you got home from school your mother was there, possibly baking cookies, and we knew our neighbors and might be sent over there to borrow a cup of sugar. People were generally friendly and trustworthy. We interacted with other people directly and this goes on to create empathy among social groups. Speaking directly to another person helps one adopt the feelings of that other person as their own, and fosters a feeling of community and social responsibility. It was a much simpler time.
These days I hear people of a certain age ask questions like, “What happened to my country?” and “What is this place?” Well, constant discord and social divisions were put into the publics mind, little by little and over decades of time, resulting in the social unrest we see today. This is the work of the controllers…can you see it yet?
The controllers of the public mind are not “short-timers” and the long-term agenda that they have planned spans generations. Most people cannot understand this; why would anyone participate in a plan that they will never see come to fruition? I have struggled with this question myself in earlier years and now realize that this perplexing notion only goes to help conceal the agenda. The answer to the original question above lies in metaphysics and is an “area of concern” all its own that I intend to cover more directly in the future. This topic needs to be correctly understood in order to properly understand events on the world stage that we see today, and keeping the common man ignorant of important information, such as metaphysics, is just another part of the control grid agenda. For now, just be aware that the ultra-rich that control most governments of the world are heavily involved in the dark side of the occult arts and have presented their intentions to the public through media repeatedly.
What the public needs to understand is that we are playing a game on an international stage.
And there are rules to this game we are playing (it’s just that no one told you, or that there is even a game at all) and one of the rules is that intentions must be made public in some form. And intentions have been stated publicly, keeping with the rules of a game you didn’t even know you were playing, but were presented to you in the form of fiction through books and film.
Total control of the planet by a small group of people is the New World Order agenda. As mentioned, this agenda has been presented to the public in media, and many times as comedy. The small-hat tribe seems to produce good comedians as well as devious lawyers. The Austin Powers films would be a good example of this “truth disguised as comedy,” with “Dr. Evil” and his shaved cat. This is pretty funny stuff and no one could take this seriously. See how this works? A version for children can be seen in an old cartoon called “Pinky and the Brain.” This is how the game is being played and is sometimes referred to as “predictive programming.” This is mind control…can you see it yet?
But we do have a serious side to all of this and it’s right out in the open as well, you just have to look for it. On January 10th, 1963 “The Communist Goals for a Takeover of America” was openly read on the floor of the US House of Representatives and entered into the congressional record. There were 45 “goals” to this manifesto and some of them have “timed out” (would no longer apply) but I will list some of them here…
Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
Promote the UN as the only hope for mankind.
Do away with loyalty oaths. (Present day: unless they are for Israel)
Capture one or both political parties in the United States. (Done)
Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teacher’s associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
Gain control of student newspapers.
Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations that are under Communist attack.
Infiltrate the press. Get control over book review assignments, editorial writing, policy making decisions.
Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. (Done)
Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.” (Now you understand “modern art”)
Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.” (A painting of a tomato soup can would be a good example of meaningless art)
Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them censorship and a violation of free speech and free press.
Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV.
Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural and healthy.”
Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of “the separation of church and state.” (This is a “pretzel-like” twisting of the 1st amendment)
Discredit the American constitution by calling it inadequate, old fashioned, out of step with modern needs, and a hinderance to cooperation between nations on a world-wide basis.
Discredit the Founding Fathers. Present them as aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the grounds that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.”
Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture: education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
Infiltrate and gain control of big business. (Done)
Transfer some of the powers of arrest from police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat.
Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of coercive control of those that oppose Communist goals.
Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents. (Forced government schooling anyone?)
Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems
The above demonstrates facets of the coming “world order,” along with the strategy to destroy the American way of life by driving the vehicle of American culture off the road it was on and into the ditch. Everything listed above has been accomplished to some degree and the water in the ditch is filling the car; Pavlov’s humans are in a panic, have now forgotten everything they ever knew including common sense, and are in complete psychiatric disarray.
Conspiracy theory was correct all along…can you see it yet?
Let’s stop here for a moment. The windows are down and we can easily extricate ourselves from the flooding car and swim to the bank. We can sit here for a while and collect our thoughts. We can now see just what has been done to us. Yeah, the car is wrecked and might just be washed away…so what? We can always replace it with something better later on. Let’s “ditch” the flooded car metaphor for a bit and take a real-world inventory of just where we are…
America, with its “antiquated” Constitution that guaranteed basic human rights to all stood in the way of the New World Order, and it was decided some time ago that the United States must be neutralized. This was a very tall order and would not be an easy task. Progress was slow but deliberate and continuous, with incremental changes made to the social order throughout the last decades of the 20th century. Totalitarianism was being brought to us in a very innocuous way, and it crept in on little cat feet, one careful step followed by the next.
There were periods of crisis, social upheaval and war that were always followed by periods of calm. This is a known mind-control technique; alternating brutality and kindness as a means to gain conformity of an individual. And now we see it scaled-up and applied to the public mind, the collective psyche that forms the culture of any societal group.
Another method of mind-control that has been known to completely fracture the human psyche is solitary confinement; this was created, possibly as an unintended consequence but created none the less, in the digital communication age.
The need for constantly improving productivity to satisfy the materialistic wants of a culture that had been trained in materialism, had already caused many people to become overly “self” absorbed, and thus isolated. This “training” began decades ago and was disguised as entertainment. And then along came the cell-phone to take it to the next level.
Instant communication from wherever one might be, either by phone, text message, etc. does improve productivity. But at what cost? The price we paid was the sacrifice of direct communication with other human beings on a regular basis and that made the relationships that are formed among individuals more impersonable. This led to the gradual loss of the very thing that defines our humanity: empathy. This loss of empathy quickly traveled across the ether of the collective psyche of American culture, imprisoning all in an invisible jail cell. An epidemic of loneliness resulted, followed by profound cognitive dissonance in the public mind that could be best exemplified with this simple question: How is it possible to be lonely with people all around? This is a very good question but I want you to answer this one…take some time to think it through.
This fracturing of minds that resulted in a loneliness epidemic suited the controllers; the public built their own prison and paid for it as well. They will demand that it stay in place, will fight for its continuation and are blind to the great harm being done to them through isolation.
The digital age of isolation really accelerated as we entered the 21st century; but other stressors were already in place that would result in cognitive disfunction of varying degrees, and has led us to the Happy Clown World [TM] we now inhabit. Constant competition for little slips of paper with numbers printed on them is, in my opinion, the leading culprit. Multi-tasking and ever-increasing level of productivity were again offered as a solution to this “not enough money” problem and was suggested by the controllers themselves. More smoke and mirrors. Again, we see the solution only exacerbating the original problem, which often times did not actually exist, and in this case was created by the very one’s that will then offer their “solution.” This is the Hegelian Dialectic: problem, reaction, solution. Thesis, antithesis, synthesis.
And we haven’t even mentioned microwave poisoning and the ingestion of aluminum oxide being dispersed by aircraft in plain sight. These two issues are poison for both the mind and body and cannot be ignored. Yet, the general public simply chooses to ignore this scientific fact as if they have been hypnotized. And I think they have been hypnotized, through the afore mentioned isolation that has left them with an extremely narrow field of awareness, and then coupled with the ingestion of toxins in their environment that has led to both physical and cognitive decline. This was then compounded even further by ongoing high stress levels that have been shown to reduce IQ. The “zombie meme” that was introduced about ten years ago is beginning to make more sense…can you see it now?
I have known for quite some time now that the general public was suffering from some kind of mass psychosis of some sort. But even I was reluctant to accept this…until “covid mania” was introduced. This was the most astonishing display of mind-control that I have ever seen and a new term was produced to explain it: Mass Formation Psychosis.
This phrase should be properly attributed to the Dutch psychologist Mattis Desmet, and this term was really the product of his study of the totalitarian state and the psychological condition of those that adhere to this form of government.
The totalitarian state will eventually devour its children. The only solution is a non-violent revolution and a simple refusal to go along by the public.
(Sidebar: Desmet goes on to talk of parallel societies being formed as a way of combating totalitarian rule and I am seeing this idea coming from many directions as of late. This could serve as a potential solution to mass psychosis among the general public. Those of us that did not fall victim to this “insanity” could just choose to walk away. We are not livestock and certainly not property of the state.)
Mainstream medical associations are “owned” by the power elite, and the sock-puppet leaders of these associations refuse to publicly recognize the “mind of the crowd” or the herd mentality. Yet the average person can witness these things plainly in nature. This is simply another attempt at mind-control (with mind-control being used to hide mind-control programs) and this tactic is used in the world of politics frequently. When something cannot be explained away, just claim that it is not real and refuse to acknowledge it.
Mass psychosis is a very real phenomenon and can be seen throughout history presenting itself in various ways, whether it be the Dutch “Tulip Mania” of the 17th century or merely passing “fads” such as seen in the 1890’s with bicycling in the United States. Mass psychosis is the very substrate of “the next big thing” mentality and we can certainly see this demonstrated with cell-phones. Get the latest model…I think the camera is a little better and it’s a different color!
Ironically enough, it was “hand held devices” that lead us to the first step that will form Mass Formation Psychosis…isolation. Double irony follows; the device that was suppose to bring us all together has done the opposite creating confusion and cognitive dissonance among the public.
Couple this with the fact that many people feel their lives and employment are meaningless and that public narratives don’t make sense anymore and we arrive at what has been termed “free floating anxiety.” This is a condition where high levels of discontent in the afflicted population cannot be connected to anything concrete and will leave people felling helpless and afraid. This state will take us directly to “free floating aggression” and the perceived notion that it is necessary to lash out at something (that is not clear) governed by the “fight or flight” response that is a basic survival mechanism and comes from the R-complex region of the human brain.
It can’t be argued that American society has become very violent, as many people choose “fight” over “flight.”
The “R” in R-complex stands for reptilian. Yeah, we are back to the lizard people; these are the people that are currently attempting to control the planet and this is a topic all its own that we shall return to at some future date. For now, just understand that it is this level of mentality that has put American culture in the ditch.
“The Hacking of the American Mind” is the title of a book released several years ago. I have not read the book, but I have seen several lectures given by the books author, Dr. Robert Lustig. In his view (that I am in agreement) we have a crisis in our culture due to the conflation of happiness and pleasure. They are not the same thing.
Happiness and pleasure are biochemical responses that originate with the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. Happiness is experienced in meaningful social interactions that are genuine in their nature. They are not contrived and are therefore valid, which produces the serotonin release. We can all sense this type of interaction when we encounter them and this leads to the feeling of contentment.
“I like this and don’t need anymore.”
Pleasure is the result of dopamine release, but leads to excitement rather than contentment and this is the root of all addiction, whether it be to substances or to certain behaviors.
“I like this and I want more.”
Dopamine also down-regulates serotonin, so the more pleasure that is experienced the less happiness we have; these two things do not really co-exist very well leading to the downward spiral that ends in the “culture ditch,” with Facebook and other forms of social media leading the way. This is the “dopamine hit” created by someone smashing the “like” button on your social media post and is particularly harmful to young minds. Public school teachers are reporting a noticeable drop in student motivation and ambition and go on to state that this issue has steadily worsened over the last ten years. This correlates to the introduction of the smart phone and the rise of social media. I fully understand that correlation does not equal causation, but this link does need to be investigated.
You cannot fix a problem you can’t identify. You can not pull yourself out of the ditch until you figure out how you drove into it.
Now we see my “stuck in the ditch” analogy again, but this time stated by another person, Dr. Lustig. Many are aware of the cultural problems we face and often times reach the same conclusions independently. This is truth.
Welcome to the zombie apocalypse, where we have mindless people simply reacting to stimuli in their environment that are completely devoid of any original thought as they tell us that we are insane. Have you heard this one before?
The once well-behaved dogs have become increasingly frantic as the water in the basement approached chest level and continued upward; the lab assistants are not coming and the dogs went absolutely insane as the water enveloped their heads and they prepared to take their last breath.
Somewhere from deep inside my memory, I can hear this statement: “Dogs are people too.”
Yeah, they sure are. Can you see it now?
