The actual quote that you see in the title is by Steve Biko and it states…“the most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressors is the mind of the oppressed”.. Steve Biko enliven the spirit of the freedom struggle in Azania and he articulated the feelings and aspirations of the Afrikan’s more than the once imprisoned Nelson Mandela could have, during that period. Steve Biko overstood that once you capture a man’s mind, you can manipulate him to no end.. I changed the ending of the quote to black man, instead of oppressor’s, because black people look around them and see their fancy cars, clothes from some upscale fashion outlets, their over priced electronic gadgets, built on the backs of slave labour and feel they are not oppressed. This is what white people and the ruling class tell us. You have all these things that starving or poor people in “the third world” don’t have, therefore you must be free.
As awoke beings who unplug from the Matrix of white pathology, one soon overstand the difference between what freedom through unplugging from the Matrix and being part of a feeder program, which is free-dumb.
The quest for power has always been the driving force of the ruling class. Those who fail to acknowledge this reality are themselves pawns and pieces on a grand chess board, to be moved around and manipulated. It is always the purpose of the ruling class to have the non ruling class, remain ignorant to their intentions and planning. We know the ends, but what are the means to this end? And rest assured, the end is to maintain or tighten their control or position as preeminent rulers of distinctions, whose every move is unquestioned and obeyed. In order to achieve this end one must have the non ruling class, styled the working class under socials ideology, willingly consent to be pawns in this grand chess game.
In his book Public Opinion, author Walter Lippmann introduced the term “Manufacturing Consent” . Manufacturing consent is a treatises on the technique of crowd control. Crowd control is a necessary skill to have for the ruling class, messianic figures or potential leader, to have and hold in order to consolidate their power.
During the early 1900’s, a new organization called the committee on public affairs was created by Woodrow Wilson during the first great European tribal war. Created to get amurdikkklan citizen support for and to fight the orchestrated Zionist attack on Germany, at the time. Edwin Bernays was a member in that committee and he was the one who came up with the idea of freeing the world for “democracy”. This is a slogan that is so subconsciously embedded in the psyche of amurdikkklan jingoism, that most citizens, if asked what democracy is, would be hard press to explain.
Bernays was the nephew of Sigmund Fraud (this is not a misspelling) , who many attribute today’s pseudo science of medical psychology to. Fraud’s expertise was in the study of the individual’s mind, yet both he and his nephew were influenced by an earlier mind manipulator called Gustav Le Bon, whose book psychologue Des Foul…or The Crowd…was the basis for the study of the mind of a large number of people.
It was an in depth study of group psychology that taught the ruling class or individual with the desire to rule a group, how to effectively manipulate and control large groups of people, through the creation of group identity, and mass ideology vie a chain of command. Among Le Bron’s even more famous adherents where Adolphus Hitler, Joseph Goebbels and Benito Mussolini. Edwin Bernays is the father of modern propaganda. Propaganda creates a contagion like effect, running through mindset of a large group. This is social engineering and the control of social trends, which promotes perception as commodities.
This is done by creating carefully calculated associations with subconscious fears and desires of individuals, and ramping it up during a group or herd like events. This is the essence of crowd control. The crowd can be as small as 5-10…or as large as millions. By influencing social opinions, leaders and perceived authority figures, attempts to reach those who followed them, through the initiation of the contagion on social behaviors and ideas through social conformity.
“It is not necessary for the politician to be the slave of the public’s group prejudices, if he can learn how to mold the mind of the voters in conformity with his own ideas of public welfare and public service.
—Edwin Bernard (propaganda)
In this case the authority figure’s ideas of public welfare and public service is a creation of a group contagion, which enslaves the mind of the mass, through the manipulation of fears and desires, necessary to enhance and strengthen his/ her rulership and position. For the individuals caught up in the group/herd mindset, identifying with others via the aforementioned chain of command creates a cult of personality worship, with the ideology being the glue which hold the various pieces together.. This, as I said, is social conditioning and is an unconscious or subconscious human practice, elevated to a psychological tactic for rulership. Social conditioning can be benign…teaching a child that the mother is the best thing in a child’s life, to malignant…teaching the majority in a society that vulnerable elements of that society are super predators.
Or teaching specific segments of a society that killing innocent men, women and children in preemptive military strikes, will lesson, real or perceived or even potential attacks by people who have neither the skills or machine to attack from long distance. Such social conditioning is easily manipulated through specious arguments called Hegelian dialectic. This argument series of social conditioning as arguments…or debates…are usually presented in a threefold manner, comprising three stages of development: a thesis, giving rise to its reaction, an antithesis, which contradicts or negates the thesis, and the tension between the two being resolved by means of a synthesis, a path between the two, which is held out as most palpable and acceptable by the herd.
Hegelian dialectics is based upon four concepts:
- Everything is transient and finite, existing in the medium of time.
- Everything is composed of contradictions (opposing forces).
- Gradual changes lead to crises, turning points when one force overcomes its opponent force (quantitative change leads to qualitative change).
- Change is helical (spiral), not circular (negation of the negation).
Hegel’s dialectic is the tool which manipulates us into a frenzied circular pattern of thought and action. Every time we fight for or defend against an ideology we are playing a necessary role in the grand designs of the ruling class to advance humanity into a dictatorship, regardless of the actual ideology that rulership practice. For as we see it is not the ideology that is the prime, but the manipulation of the ideology by the ruling class, that is the prime. Thus within reLIEgion as in politics, good people are deviated from good sincere efforts to do “good” by their fellow man, into an agitated state where the notion of either or, becomes the prevailing mantra. Such behaviors lead to aggressive attacks on the other, both verbally, socially and physically. Out of such malignant conditioning comes genocide and even Pyrrhic suicides…mutual obliteration.
But as his story and our story has taught us….if you live your life vicariously through another person, by attaching your identity to that person, if and when that person dies, you lose your identity and become discombobulated. Even seeking to die with that person. That person is the anchor, the herd mentality uses to fix themselves to this reality, this falls construct, initially created by an architect with malevolent intentions. And as we each day attach our life preserves to a sinking ship, being that we have no clue how to swim, the inevitable result is mass suicide or murder. Think Guyana 1978 and reverend Jim Jones
The above video is a glaring example of the mass manipulation of the herd. Directing them into a cage of limited thoughts and controlled state of mind. By allowing themselves to be herded like sheep and cattle, those who effectively consider themselves minor and minority, attach their identity to the shepherd and the cattle rancher, who while a physical and spiritual minority is through group think is seen as a majority. It is also an example of aligning your dingy, the disenfranchisement of Afrikan in amurdikkka, to a sinking ship, white pathology, as it meanders down the rugged, stormy seas of reLIEgion.
The current circus of fools, is another example of the herd, following the Shepard blindly over a cliff, because their identity is tied up so much into that creep show called Americana, that any notion of deviation is not even a consideration, much less something that once presented should eve be seen as reasonable.
One other example of how your social conditionings and environment dictates who you are, is seen in the recent spat of senseless violence that the kneegrow sheep, commits against each other. I only want to touch on this, as I will delve more deeper in my next post. The appalling and senseless, seemingly random shootings, stabbing, brawling are the explosive results of a caged mentality, where cognitive dissonance, the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual ( or a group) who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time; end up performing acts that are contradictory to their beliefs, ideas, or values; or is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs, ideas or values.
In the end, the most potent weapon in the hands of the white pathologist is the mind of the Afrikan, once one pierces the veil of deception to see behind the curtain, there is not but one way to go from that point, but to overstand that….
“Knowing others is intelligence;
knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength;
mastering yourself is true power.”
