In a sense posting messages on this Forum is like preaching to the converted. The real challenge is how to reach the dumbed down masses, who often don’t have the slightest conception of the deception that is being played out before our very eyes. I find it very frustrating when trying to convey some of this to family members and friends, who are oblivious to what is going on and are resistant to questioning the accepted version of events. I imagine that this is true for others on the Forum.
Social engineering in one form or another plays a pivotal part in keeping the deception going. The MSM and television, in particular, have ramped up the fear factor in relation to the so-called Pandemic and have manipulated people’s thinking along a particular route. The more we can take back the media by circulating the kind of stories that never make it into mainstream news channels, the more likely it is that we can spread the message to those who are currently asleep to what is actually going on.
Social engineering is generally so effective in controlling people’s perceptions, as it manipulates and moulds their thinking without their awareness that it is happening.
Another important factor that plays a significant role in all of this is what can be called the power of ‘Groupthink’. Many decades ago in a social psychology course I recall being introduced to Solomon Asch’s classic experiment on conformity in which participants were asked to look at lines of 3 different lengths and judge which one was the longest. Although the answer was obvious, the experiment demonstrated the extent to which those taking part were willing to give a clearly wrong answer in order to conform to the rest of the group. In my experience, breaking through the wall of conformity is not an easy matter. At the present time, when people are dealing with so many shocks in relation to what was previously regarded as the norm, accepting and conforming to the ‘new normal’ may ironically provide some kind of comfort In trying to make sense of a bewildering series of events. But, just as the power of ‘Groupthink’ can keep people in a state of conformity, it can also work the other way when enough people start to waken up. For this reason, I believe that it’s so important to unite and get the message out far and wide. I was really pleased to see the vast number of people protesting in Berlin recently. The more people that question the official narrative, the harder it becomes for the authorities to completely ridicule them and label them as crazy ‘conspiracy theorists’.
