Panties and pearls all over were being indiscriminately twisted into uncomfortable knots today when Faux Nooz ran the following story:
Is Obama waging psychological warfare on Americans?According to Faux commentator, the infelicitously monikered "Dr. Keith Ablow":
I believe that the Obama administration is conducting psychological warfare on conservative Americans. Not only that but it is also waging this war on all Americans who previously viewed themselves, their country, their Constitution and their overwhelming belief in God as a force for good in the world.
Ironically, Woody thinkz, Faux Nooz is not altogether wrong; this is one of those "conspiracies" that actually is one.
Beginning in earnest in the '80s, with the success of media consolidation, the entire USofA has been turned into a gigantic Skinner box, the walls of which are the ethereal, flickering screens which define us and our aspirations.
We are ALL subjects of a huge, generations'-long experiment in whether as whole population can be trained to what's called "learned helplessness."
It is NOT the sole responsibility of any regime. All have been equally complicit. This has been the CoproRat agenda since the '70s. The purpose of the experiment is to render the whole populace inert under the threat that ANYTHING one does will result in a 'punishment' or some other kind of "disincentive," which in the end, after endlessly repeated, albeit often random, stimuli, results in as kind of conscious, but helpless paralysis.
The psychologist who developed the technique, Martin Seligman, late of the US military psy-ops where he specialized in "breaking" prisoners, and former head of the American Psychological Association, perfected it on dogs. Upon completion, they dogs had to be destroyed--euthanized--because
This experiment is being and has been, and will continue for the foreseeable future to be conducted completely in public, unafraid of exposure, because the conditioning has become the NORM. The irony--if such is the proper word--izzat Faux Nooz is itself one of the primary instruments by which the psychological shocks which constitute the "treatment" are administered.
