The phrase ‘mind control’ refers to the successful control of the thoughts and actions of others without his or her expressed consent.
In the most general sense, the term implies that the victim has given up some basic political, social, or religious beliefs and attitudes, and has been made to accept contrasting ideas.
Mind control, when exercised as a government policy, turned Germany from the most cultured nation in Europe into a nation of cold-blooded murderers in a single generation.
Government manipulation of facts for the purpose of controlling the population is called ‘propaganda’ and its naked power remains on display as a living example in North Korea.
North Korea’s ‘Great Leader’ [Kim il Sung] and his mad progeny, ‘Beloved Leader’ Kim Jong il, kept North Korean society closed to outside influence, and have, since Kim Jong il took power in 1948, effectively brainwashed the entire country.
Despite famines, mass starvation, concentration [or ‘reeducation’] camps, an almost complete lack of basic necessities like electricity and clean water, the average North Korean believes his country to be one of the most advanced and desirable places to live on earth.
Kim Jong il is worshipped as a god, and his son worshipped as a living god. Two million North Korean soldiers stand ready to march into the teeth of battle at his whim.
Such is the power of systematic, unrestrained mind control.
There are all kinds of ways of looking at ‘mind control’. Some might argue that parental control over their children is a form of mind control, and the argument has logical merit.
Mind control is a bit like a knife. A knife, used to take a life in a bar fight, is a bad thing. The same knife, used to perform an emergency appendectomy to save a life, is a good thing. The knife itself is neither good nor evil. It is simply a knife.
Parental mind control over their children is a necessary part of maintaining the social and cultural fabric of society. Children need to be taught how to be good — being bad comes naturally.
Children want to please those in authority over them, and the first thing they learn is that socially acceptable behavior earns rewards, while anti-social behavior reaps consequences. With that lesson in hand, children put it into practice by seeking to learn what is socially acceptable.
But because mind control is a necessary part of learning social restrictions, we remain susceptible to it for the rest of our lives.
The values we learn as children seeking to put into practice life lesson #1; [good=rewards and bad=consequences] remain with us.
And nobody understands that better than the educators we trust with the power of mind control over our children.
Two teachers with the Port Washington-Saukville School Board put together a questionnaire which was distributed to hundreds of Port Washington high school students, with instructions to submit written answers and then to discuss the survey.
The questionnaire’s release was carefully timed; the survey was given to about 400 of the school’s 930 students on April 25, the day before the national Day of Silence, an annual event co-sponsored by the New York City-based Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network.
According to the ‘Day of Silence’ web site, the event is a “student-led day of action” that attempts to eliminate harassment of non-heterosexual students.
Among the questions the students were required to submit written answers for later discussion included [and I wish I were making this up]:
“If you have never slept with someone of your same gender, then how do you know you wouldn’t prefer it?”
How does a high school student cope with a question like that? What possible educational value does such a question advance?
Sexual orientation aside, this is nothing less than a school system’s exhortation to students to engage in premarital sex for the sake of experimentation.
Now add the sexual orientation, the coincidence of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance sponsorship, and bingo!
Our knife just got used in a bar fight.
Now, one can characterize it according to its intended use as either good or evil.
The compulsory submission of young minds for the control of their thoughts and actions aimed at changing basic political, social, or religious beliefs and attitudes until they conform with conflicting or contrasting ideas.
Other questions on the survey included: “What do you think caused your heterosexuality?” and “When did you decide you were heterosexual?”
Both were clearly designed to imply that heterosexuality is a conscious decision based on some cause — while at the same time, gay rights supporters argue that sexual orientation is neither the result of a conscious decision or caused by some external event.
If it sounds confusing to you, imagine how confusing it must sound to a fifteen-year old?
When angry parents confronted the school’s principal, his response was to describe the survey as an, “exercise in compassion and understanding that did not work out real well.”
What it WAS was an exercise in brainwashing. How well it worked out remains to be seen. The kids are still only in high school.
The Bible says that among the most powerful weapons in the antichrist’s arsenal during the Tribulation is power to delude and deceive the masses who will worship him as the messiah.
Jesus warned that his powers of deception will be such that, if it were possible, he would even be able to deceive the very elect. (Matthew 24:4)
Paul says his powers of delusion will reach their peak after the removal of the Restrainer [and the Church] at the Rapture.
“For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only He who now letteth will let, until He be taken out of the way.”
Paul then speaks of those who rejected Christ and salvation during the Church Age, those with the “deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”
Since they rejected Christ and His offer of salvation by grace through faith, “for THIS cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” (2nd Thessalonians 2:10-11)
The groundwork for that strong delusion is already being laid by predators disguised as educators, brainwashing the young impressionable minds until evil and good are mere social conventions to be done away with as necessary.
Just in time for the advent of the master manipulator.
