The difference between true education and
vocational training has been cleverly blurred.
Here are a few
tips on how smart people can control other people. If any of this rings
a bell - Well, then wake up!
The first principle of people
control is not to let them know you are controlling them. If people
knew, this knowledge will breed resentment and possibly rebellion, which
would then require brute force and terror, an old fashioned, expensive
and not 100 % certain method of control.
It is easier than you
think to control people indirectly, to manipulate them into thinking
what you want them to think and doing what you want them to
One basic technique is to keep them ignorant. Educated people
are not as easy to manipulate. Abolishing public education or
restricting access to education would be the direct approach. That would
spill the beans.
The indirect approach is to control the
education they receive.
It's possible to be a Ph.D., doctor,
lawyer, businessman, journalist, or an accountant, just to name a few
examples, and at the same time be an uneducated person. The difference
between true education and vocational training has been cleverly blurred
in our time so that we have people successfully practicing their
vocations while at the same time being totally ignorant of the larger
issues of the world in which they live.
The most obvious symptom
is their absence of original thought. Ask them a question and they will
end up reciting what someone else thinks or thought the answer was. What
do they think, Well, they never thought about it. Their education
consisted of learning how to use the library and cite sources.
That greatly simplifies things for the controller because with
lots of money, university endowments, foundations, grants, and ownership
of media, it is relatively easy to control who they will think of as
authorities to cite in lieu of doing their own thinking.
technique is to keep them entertained. Roman emperors did not stage
circuses and gladiator contests because they didn't have television. We
have television because we don't have circuses and gladiator events.
Either way, the purpose is to keep the people's minds focused on
entertainment, sports, and peripheral political issues. This way you
won't have to worry that they will ever figure out the real issues that
allow you to control them.
Just as a truly educated person is
difficult to control, so too is an economically independent person.
Therefore, you want to create conditions that will produce people who
work for wages, since wage earners have little control over their
economic destiny. You'll also want to control the monetary, credit, and
banking systems. This will allow you to inflate the currency and make it
next to impossible for wage earners to accumulate capital. You can also
cause periodic deflation to collapse the family businesses, family
farms, and entrepreneurs, including independent community banks.
To keep trade unions under control, you just promote a scheme
that allows you to shift production jobs out of the country and bring
back the products as imports (it is called free trade). This way you
will end up with no unions or docile unions.
is to buy both political parties so that after a while people will feel
that no matter whether they vote for Candidate A or Candidate B, they
will get the same policies. This will create great apathy and a belief
that the political process is useless for effecting real change.
Pretty soon you will have a population that feels completely
helpless, and thinks the bad things happening to them are nobody in
particular's fault, just a result of global forces or evolution or some
other disembodied abstract concept. If necessary, you can offer
Then you can bleed them dry without having to worry
overly much that one of them will sneak into your house one night and
cut your throat. If you do it right, they won't even know whose throat
they are cutting.
