"The size of the lie is a definite factor in
causing it to be believed, for the vast masses of the nation are in the
depths of their hearts more easily deceived than they are consciously and
intentionally bad. The primitive simplicity of their minds renders them a
more easy prey to a big lie than a small one, for they themselves often
tell little lies but would be ashamed to tell a big one."
"All propaganda must be so popular and on such an intellectual level,
that even the most stupid of those towards whom it is directed will
understand it. Therefore, the intellectual level of the propaganda must be
lower the larger the number of people who are to be influenced by it."
"Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be
made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider
the most wretched sort of life as paradise."

"My ideal of education is hard. Whatever is weak must be hammered away.
In the fortresses of my militant order a generation of young people will
grow to strike fear into the heart of the world. Violent, masterful,

must withstand pain. There must be nothing weak or tender about them. The

strong and beautiful...That way I can fashion things anew."
Thus inwardly armed with confidence in God and the unshakable stupidity

Government connections enable "teen help" industry to thwart regulation.
This sidebar is associated with a full-length feature article, - guerrillanewsAt Some Youth 'Treatment' Facilities, 'Tough Love' Takes Brutal Forms
The controversial world of youth behavior-modification facilities intersects with a web of intricate political connections. And where the treatment industry sees cooperation with government entities, activists warn, these links could cloud the prospects for public oversight of the "teen-help" market.
The influence of the behavior-modification industry is felt on Capitol Hill. Four members of the House of Representatives and one senator serve as honorary board members of Kids Helping Kids, a company with corporate links to a now-defunct behavior-modification program for teen drug users known as Straight Incorporated. The various franchises of that program dissolved in the early 1990s following allegations of child abuse, as well as criticism for using cruel, prisoner-of-war-style brainwashing techniques on adolescents.
Watchdog groups report that Straight Inc. has since morphed into the Drug Free America Foundation, a conservative anti-drug advocacy group. The co-founder, Mel Sembler, is a longtime Republican Party donor and fundraiser who served as ambassador to Italy for the current administration and ambassador to Australia under George H.W. Bush.
The connections are even more direct on the state level. Earlier this year in Montana, a landmark bill to impose regulatory guidelines on adolescent residential treatment facilities was squelched by a powerful lobbying campaign from private service providers. Proposed partially in response to reports of abuse and deaths in some treatment programs, the bill would have authorized the state Department of Health and Human Services to monitor private behavior-modification programs. According to government estimates, Montana contains over two dozen of these institutions, ranging from "wilderness"-based programs to disciplinary boarding academies.
To eclipse the bill, private treatment companies pushed their own legislation, which would effectively place regulatory authority not with the health department but with a five-member board under the Department of Labor. Three of the board's members are representatives of the teen treatment industry, including state Representative Paul Clark, who directs a local therapeutic wilderness program. The bill, which was recently approved by the legislature, requests no public funding and specifically exempts church-affiliated and "faith-based" programs.
According to state records, Spring Creek Lodge, an affiliate of World Wide Association of Specialty Programs and Schools (WWASPS), spent over $50,000 on lobbying activities to help push the bill through the legislature.
In Utah, the WWASPS name is prominently linked to the Republican Party. The Salt Lake City Tribune reported that between 2002 and 2004, WWASPS founder Robert Lichfield, his family, and business associates have contributed a total of more than $1 million to Republican candidates and party organizations - a financial push that coincided with the killing of a 2004 initiative in the state legislature to regulate teen residential treatment facilities.
Charles Huffine, an adolescent psychiatrist who has joined other mental health professionals in urging stronger oversight of residential treatment facilities, is wary of attempts by industry interests to co-opt the regulatory process. "It's the fox-guarding-the-chicken-coop kind of thing," he remarked.
But rather than a conflict of interest, some in the teen help industry see a healthy partnership with officials. In interviews with The NewStandard, WWASPS representatives described a good working relationship between their enterprises and the agencies charged with checking up on them, like state departments of education and, at Tranquility Bay in Jamaica, the United States Embassy.
"I'm all for law enforcement," said WWASPS President Ken Kay. "I think all of our schools work closely with law enforcement and would welcome their visit every day." - guerrillanews
Behaviorism and control
Old world order into New World Order?
What is "behaviour modification."
Simply described, it is "reward or punishment for actions" association. It was used on you as a child whenever you were being commended or otherwise for your behaviour.
Taking away a privilege is usually a sure-fire method to persuading a child to change its behaviour when that child is old enough to under-stand the process. Praising a child for doing good is another method of changing behaviour, especially in the child who is anxious toplease. The rod of education applied to the seat of learning is another method of bringing about a desired behaviour change.
When behaviour modification techniques such as these are applied in a loving, caring and consistent way, the child changes their behaviour without holding feelings of resentment. However, if these techniques are perverted in any way, damage is done to the child's psyche, their emotions. e.g.. the abused child syndrome. Cults use a sophisticated and perverted form of behaviour modification which damages an individuals emotions.
"Ivan Pavlov, the famous Russian scientist, is the man credited with helping us understand more about our abilities to implant thoughts and behaviors in others. He did it with remarkable experiments on dogs. He is most famous for training a dog to salivate at the sound of a bell, without seeing or smelling any food. He won the Nobel Peace Prize for this work. His later work is lesser known, but perhaps much more important.
He was able to show scientifically that behaviors in animals could be established or erased by creating the appropriate amount of stress for the animal. For example, with the right amount of stress, he could make a dog react aggressively to a caretaker with whom the dog was once extremely loyal. He applied stress to his animals through emotional means and through medical means. Regardless of the method, each animal had a certain level of tolerance to stress. Once that level was surpassed, the animal began to break down, and changes in the animal's behavior could be observed."...
"As a society, we fear a variety of things. Terrorist and weapons of mass destruction are two obvious examples. Our fear may make us vulnerable to the powers of suggestion by authorities as to how to best ease our anxiety. The difficulty is in discerning what we should be genuinely fearful of, and what fears are being used to push us toward alternative ways of thinking."
selected quotes from: Brainwashing and thought control in the news but far from new-Steven Halley
more interesting reading from the Ross Institute
The inspiration for Ludovico's Technique [in 'A Clockwork Orange'], which the scientists use to brainwash young Alex, comes from behavioral psychology, as popularized in the mid-twentieth century by B. F. Skinner.
Skinner, a psychologist, advocated the restriction of individual freedoms to achieve an ideal planned society. He studied how people could be made to modify their behavior by Systematized rewards and punishments, how people could come to associate the behavior desired with the pleasure of the reward they received for it and, as we see in Alex's case, how people could be made to associate unwanted behavior with the pain of punishment. Behaviorism won many adherents through the '40s, '50s, and '60s; Skinner's methods of conditioning were used successfully on retarded children and juvenile delinquents. Burgess found these ideas revolting and their spread threatening; in an interview, he called one of Skinner's works, Beyond Freedom and Dignity, "one of the most dangerous books ever written."
a clockwork orange: context
CIA mind-control trials revealed as secret inspiration behind 'A Clockwork Orange'
[B.F.]Skinner uses the idea of global problems to justify research into and the attempt to manipulate people - pollution, food shortages, depletion of natural resources, overpopulation, war and crime.
To him the question is how to induce Man to behave properly so as to use new forms of energy, eat less meat, form smaller families with fewer children, use birth control, and act decently to each other. A seemingly noble purpose with a devious means to achieving the end.
As with all behaviorists he assumes Man is incapable of responsibility, self-discipline, self-determined morality and even autonomous achievement because there is no self in the first place.
To him you simple "react" and "behave" to external forces, and thought and awareness are nothing more than annoying, meaningless by-products. The result of this is that the concepts of consciousness, awareness, self-control, will, self-determinism, and personal responsibility cannot and do not exist within their ideological frameworks. These are considered minor things and of no meaningful significance. At best all internal subjective states, including feelings, are nothing more than chemical reactions in the brain or stimulus-response reactions to evolutionary and immediate environmental forces
B.F.Skinner - Behavioral Psychologist
Leon Festinger is a psychologist who studied groups that predicted the end of the world. He found that most members became stronger than ever when the prophecy failed. His investigation revealed that members had to find a way to cope psychologically with the failure. They needed to maintain order and meaning in their life. They needed to think they were acting according to their self-image and values.
Festinger described this contradiction which they had to overcome as what has become known as the "COGNITIVE DISSONANCE THEORY." The three components he described are:
"CONTROL OF BEHAVIOUR"
"CONTROL OF THOUGHTS"
"CONTROL OF EMOTIONS"
Each component has a powerful effect on the other two:
CHANGE ONE AND THE OTHERS WILL TEND TO FOLLOW.
When all three change the individual undergoes a complete change. Festinger summarised the basic principle:
"If you change a person's behaviour, his thoughts and feelings will change to minimise the dissonance."
When there is a conflict between thoughts, feelings or behaviour, then those in conflict will change to minimise the contradiction. This is because a person can only tolerate a certain amount of discrepancy between these components which make up his identity. In cults this dissonance is created to exploit and control them.
Steven Hassan, author of Combating Cult Mind Control, added a fourth component to Festinger's:
- "CONTROL OF INFORMATION"
By controlling the information one receives you can control and restrict the individual's ability to think for himself. You limit what he is able to think about."
SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY AND GROUP DYNAMICS-
Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, An Introduction Programming Manual was uncovered quite by accident on July 7, 1986 when an employee of Boeing Aircraft Co. purchased a surplus IBM copier for scrap parts at a sale, and discovered inside details of a plan, hatched in the embryonic days of the "Cold War" which called for control of the masses through manipulation of industry, peoples' pastimes, education and political leanings. It called for a quiet revolution, putting brother against brother, and diverting the public's attention from what is really going on.

"Light generates good feelings and that's what I am trying to do with this sculpture.
"I'm also interested in how people engage with sculpture and this as a sculpture is a very interactive piece."
"Mr Freeman said he used the travels of Captain Cook and Ridley Scott's science fiction film Blade Runner as inspiration."
here's a question for the artist...
why didn't you make the artworks' lights interact with pressure pads or sensors in the surrounding area?
At least that way the public could dance to your silly tune for free!!!
But the Art is sponsored isn't it Peter?

How Modern...how Futuristic
"Futurism was an international art movement founded in Italy in 1909. It was (and is) a refreshing contrast to the weepy sentimentalism of Romanticism.
The Futurists loved speed, noise, machines, pollution, and cities; they embraced the exciting new world that was then upon them rather than hypocritically enjoying the modern world's comforts while loudly denouncing the forces that made them possible. Fearing and attacking technology has become almost second nature to many people today; the Futurist manifestos show us an alternative philosophy.
Too bad they were all Fascists. "
Mobile phone as behavioral 'remora?'
Lets just stop a moment to think. If were increasingly becoming connected, will this cut into our family life? How will the next generation interact with their surroundings? Will we all be talking to each other through some kind of monitor or a wireless device? The human interaction is extremely important. I dont know about you, but I prefer to reach and actually touch someone. There are many biological chemicals called pheromones that can communicate to us whether someone is feeling regarding of how his or her voice sounds. These are extrasensory inputs that no wired or wireless device can replace.
As the world becomes ever more connected, there will need to be a compromise between how we use these tools. And what if the world falls on darkness one day as the massive north American black out of August 14, 2003 happens again? During that time, I realized that our society is organized thanks to electronic forms of communications. As it so happened, as soon as power was lost, we were no better than an animal who worked using our primal instinct to go home to be with our loved ones. And, just may be, thats enough to live.

"We cannot help noting in passing that the characteristic shift in the electromagnetic frequency of brain rhythm which this specific baroque music produces is toward 7.5 cycles per second. That is alpha. Also 7.5 cycles per second is the exact frequency at which the ionoshphere resonates. So the ionosphere, that vacuum layer in the earth's upper atmosphere, which reflects all our radio and TV communications, happens to resonate at the precise frequency of the key note of Pythagoras' music of the spheres. This 7.5 cps frequency, known as the Schumman Resonance, is also that of the human mind in a meditative state."
Different Music Strikes Different Chords Dr Colin Rose
When a human interacts with a machine,
they are in reality only controlling the actions of the finite possibility of moves allowed by the limitations set by the controls.
The machine is only allowing the human to move in certain directions...
pressing different buttons, pushing and pulling levers.
So...Are you playing the machine or ...
have you been played?
Is society the machine?
Why does anything technological seem to involve behavior control?
whether it is enforced choice through continuous upgrade culture or the 'mind control' of the WOW factor
