Understanding the root cause of the problems is necessary in order to create lasting change. This understanding also instantly makes room for peace and happiness to enter our lives as it gives us the clarity to make a positive change in ourselves.
The reason for our current problems can partly be found in the way that our society is organized. We can see how a small power elite are in control of our countries and our resources and are using them in their own interests. However, this group does not carry the full responsibility for our situation, the problem is the system as a whole. Our society can not function without the cooperation and support of a large portion of the population. In other words; The power elite is heavily dependent on us to comply.
The Ruling Mentality
To be accepted by the group is one of the most important needs that we humans have. By exploiting the natural human group behavior, the fear of being excluded and the need of acceptance, we are being manipulated into complying with the current system.
This manipulation creates a mentality that serves and protects the social structures and it is by looking here that we will find the root of our problems. We refer to this as the ruling mentality which is a set of behaviors that we are taught throughout our childhood, school and our working life. Most people adopt these behaviors and this is how our system is created and preserved.
To Defend our Norms
Our norms shows us the behaviors that we are to comply with to be accepted as a part of the society and the ruling mentality is a part of these norms. This is why one of the most important ruling behaviors is that everyone makes a great effort to keep within the norms and that we accept harsh treatment of those who act differently. The ones who do step out of line risk exclusion, ridicule as well as loss of status and economical safety. It begins already in childhood where we can see children bullying other children that are different. Usually this can continue without interference for years as the schools do not make efforts to provide a safe environment for the children. In this way we are taught to follow and defend our norms as if our life’s depended on it.
Not to question Authority
In school much of the teaching consists of memorizing information given by our teachers and then being able to repeat that information which does not encourage free thinking and reasoning. To question our authorities are in many cases taken as a sign of distrust and disrespect and can be severely punished. Such behavior leads to a lack of deeper understanding as we are not supposed to question the given world view and make up our own minds. This mentality continues throughout our working life when we are expected to follow the orders of our superiors without questioning even if it goes against our own conscience.
Motivation by Greed and Fear
On top of this we have a system of motivation based on desire and fear. To gain knowledge and skills or doing a good days work is often not the reward itself but instead we are motivated by getting praise from our authorities. If we do good we get high grades or the possibility to get recognition, money and status, but if we do not meet the expectations we are threatened with the possibility of being a failure or losing our livelihood.
Lack of Personal Responsibility
We are also taught not to take responsibility for our beliefs and actions. Many people just accept a given world view without thinking twice and they also do things that go against their own ethical values because they assume there is no other way. In the working life, people act as if they have no personal responsibility as they are only following orders. The truth is that we are always responsible for our actions and this is a key understanding to solve our situation.
In short, We are taught to comply with authorities without questioning or taking responsibility driven by reward and punishment. And those who step out of the norms will be put in their place.
Suppression of Empathy
We can see how empathic qualities are being suppressed in favor of the ruling mentality. We are loosing our compassion and care for other people and sometimes even our own families. The ruling mentality is creating a cold and impersonal environment with little concern for the suffering that is caused by our actions. We are taught both by looking at our authorities and the media that personal gain and success is more important than caring for the needs of others.
We can also see this in the way that women are being discriminated in our societies. Women are naturally more caring for children and family, and with a more developed empathy they are reluctant to fully embrace the ruling mentality and support acts of violence. This is probably one of the main reasons why women have been excluded from the social hierarchy and have been treated as less important than men.
Women and men need to rise up together and unite. We all need to combine strength and empathy to become balanced and powerful.
To have a social hierarchy is not in it self negative, on the contrary, it is a natural part of our societies to helps us organize efficiently and be more successful as a group. But today these natural behaviors are being used against us to control and manipulate the population. We refer to this as the ruling structures.
Promote Rulers into Power
We can see how the people that show a great willingness to comply with the ruling mentality are promoted to higher positions in school and working life. As a result almost all high positions in society today are occupied by people who follow orders without questioning and are more interested in gaining status and wealth than to do what they think is right. The top positions are in turn interconnected through even higher authorities until a pyramid of power is created that spans over nations.
Through the ruling structure a small elite in the top of the pyramid can manipulate both politics, industry, media and most aspects of our society, without anyone interfering or even asking questions about what is happening. Many people claim that it would be impossible to have a global hidden agenda, but the ruling structures are creating the perfect circumstances for this to happen. The people in the ruling structure are largely unaware of what they are contributing to, but as they choose not to question their authorities they are not able to see the bigger picture.
Institutions of influence
Most of our social institutions are being used to protect the ruling structures and to serve the power elite and I will share some examples of how this is done.
To issue and circulate money is probably the most important tool in today’s society. This power ultimately lies in the hands of private interests. Private banks have the power to legally create new money out of nothing, that is, without real value backing it and then borrow this money to the projects of their choosing and in this way they can control the development of our society. And by giving out big loans to individuals, companies and countries they create a situation where a large part of earth´s population and it´s nations is under the pressure of large debts. There is not enough money to repay all the loans with interest and this is causing both recession and inflation.
With this powerful tool at their hands they have everything they need to control the entire ruling structure and keep the people motivated to continue their work day after day.
Make Believe Democracy
Our democracies give a false sense of freedom and influence. The system has been created so that only the big parties and politicians, that are promoted with costly campaigns have a real chance of getting votes and to come into power. This makes it almost impossible for smaller parties to ever get recognized. Honest politicians who are not willing to follow the ruling mentality are not able to advance within their political organizations. The leading parties end up to be no more than separate parts of the same ruling structure who act in the interest of the companies and lobby organizations that supports them. The system is rigged and there is little or no possibility to change it from within.
To control our norms and our world view it´s essential to be able to teach and reinforce the ruling mentality and our education plays an important role in this. As we already have mentioned, our children are beginning at an early age to learn the ruling behaviors in school. There they are also taught a rigid world view that many believe to be the absolute truth. There are only a few who understand that much of what is being taught is not necessarily the truth, but ideas, theories and speculations. Even fewer understand that some things are straight out lies selected by approved authorities to fit the world view of choice which gives us a distorted picture of our past and our present situation.
It is through the media that much of our social conditioning and norms are being created. Through news and entertainment we are constantly bombarded with conflicts and violence together with indulgence in material wealth, beauty and pleasures. The news are painting a dark picture of a dangerous word which creates an environment where people are becoming close minded, suspicious and fearful. People do not trust each other and look up to strong authorities to give security and stability to their lives.
The TV is a very effective way to influence us because when we watch TV we change to a lower brainwave frequency where our subconscious mind easily absorbs the information and impressions that we see.
It is also a natural instinct for us to look up to successful and beautiful people and want to be like them. So when we see the characters on TV we subconsciously copy their behavior and in this way we get conditioned with traits like greed, rudeness, dishonesty, cruelty, dominance and submission, jealousy, fear and egoism. Many of which are planted there by intention to strengthen the ruling structures and to create a population that it is predictable, divided and easy to control.
An important thing to understand for our success is that there is an international organized effort to counter act the growth of oppositional movements and ideas. This is carried out through the use of secret services like the national security agency who are actively protecting the ruling structures and will fight any opposition using several techniques of psychological warfare.
The most common method is to spread disinformation, where a large amounts of false information is being propagated mostly through the internet and the mass media. This can for example take the form of exaggerated and unrealistic conspiracy theories, false accusations of antisemitism or sectarianism as well as spreading a general negative image towards anyone who tries to expose the truth about our governments. This is an attempt to discredit alternative information by creating a state of suspicion, disbelief and confusion.
Divide and Conquer
Another important technique is to divide and conquer. The secret service is doing this by studying a group or movement that they want to destroy and identifying any issues that could divide this group into two camps. Then they infiltrate the movement and start creating conflicts around that issue on both sides. This creates an emotional drainage and the power and focus of the movement is lost. At this time it is easy for the infiltrators to take over the leadership of the movement and use it for their own purposes.
False Flag Operations
Then we have the false flag operations where the secret service creates acts of terrorism against the local population and then falsely pushes the blame on an oppositional group or movement. This naturally makes the people concerned for their own safety and make them willing to support acts of violence and allow more governmental control.
Many people believe that it´s impossible that our authorities would harm and rule us. This reasoning in not logical, since our human history is riddled from beginning to end with endless examples of how the people have been ruled, oppressed, abused and murdered by their own government. To assume that our authorities have suddenly become benign and that all the dysfunction and suffering has nothing to do with the people in power shows a serious lack of rational thinking.
Our success relies on that people wake up from the false world view and understand how the ruling structures are used to manipulate and divide our people. With this knowledge we can find a common strategy to unite and take back our power!
