For Thinkers!

DreaDrea Raw Master

I got this from a catalog a friend gave me called Controversial (I have the address if anyone wants it), but I thought it was very interesting. I know most of you are “thinkers” anyway, but thinkers love to think more, so here is some good reading!

A SIMPLE LESSON IN MIND CONTROL! Start with a cage containing five apes. In the cage, hang a banana on a string and put stairs under it. Before long, an ape will climb up the stairs to get the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all the apes with cold water. After awhile, another ape makes an attempt with the same results – all the apes sprayed with cold water. Repeat this procedure a few more times and turn the water off. If later another ape tries to climb the stairs, the other apes – in order to avoid dousing – will try to prevent it, even though the main has been shut off and no water can be sprayed. Now remove one ape from the cage and replace him with a new one. The new ape sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his surprise, all the other apes attack him. After another attempt and attack he knows the banana is off limits. Next, remove another of the original five apes and replace him with a new one. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm. Again, replace a third original ape with a new one. This new one makes it to the stairs and is attacked as well. Three of the five apes that beat him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs, or why they participated in the beating. After replacing the fourth and fifth original ape, all apes which have been sprayed with water are gone. Nevertheless, no ape ever again approaches the stairs. Why not? Because that’s the way it’s always been!” That is how organizational behavior is indoctrinated into social/corporate policy and a culture becomes entrenched. So simple to understand what is happening to us when we know how the “controllers” use simple psychological tricks to make us jump through their hoops. But it’s time we put a stop to this. After all, we are not apes! The tools that renders their tricks ineffective is Knowledge. It is the biggest fear of exploiters that their victims wake up to their bluffs.

    DREASRAW You need to edit and reformat your post as much of it is unreadable.

    I appologize Meditating, I tried a few times but it doesnt seem to be working, so i edited it and just included the second part about mind control, which is also thought provoking. And I knew that you would check it out because of your past post, you are surely a thinker(smile)!

  • dreasraw – Yes, yes, yes! Except we are apes ;) I was just talking about such mind/behavior conditioning in our culture to a friend the other day and how culture is the perfect vehicle for mass control. They looked at me like a had a 2nd head. I think the fact that apes were used speaks so much more to us as a example. We are human animals, we just happen to wear clothes and drive cars. We should listen to our instinct more as well as question everything intellectually. I just wish that your sentiment could be heard by more in the general populous so that change could precipitate. Alas, I think too many get comfortable and are willing to keep others in line even though they do not know what for nor why.

    Thank you for reading and I’m glad you enjoyed it as much as I did Orchid! Good Vibes back attcha!

    DREASRAW Many people don’t know why they do the things they do. Make it a point to ask people why they vote for a certain candidate and most can’t verbalize an issue unless they are parroting what they heard in a commercial. If you ask them to explain their candidate’s policy position on the issue, most can’t.

    I used to lobby for a non-profit and I became friends with a campaign manager. Wow – he taught me plenty about how you manipulate the public. The apes might actually have a few up on us. Most people vote based on their perception of the candidate’s personality. I was watching a Larry King clip today where this was discussed and the guest said “Most people voted for Bush because they thought they would like to have a beer with him and now they can’t afford to buy a beer.” Funny.

    Truth is we are all manipulated by the powers that be and we need to try and be aware of it as much as possible. Corporations hire marketing psychologists to pull all kinds of little tricks to queue us to buy their merchandise. Ever notice how much toothpaste they put on the toothbrush in the commercial vs. the directions on the tube, which usually calls for a pea-sized application? They sell 4 – 5 times more toothpaste that way.

    When I took sociology in college, I remember studying how the military training programs are designed to break down individual identity and then re-socialize the person into the group sans their individuality, which is an important part of halting their ability to think about or consider anything the government doesn’t want them to think about. Then they become unquestioning government tools (no pun intended).

    You may not have noticed but you posted the same article twice within the same paragraph which makes it harder to read and some people might skip over it. You may want to edit down as it is an interesting topic. I was interested in what you initially posted that wasn’t quite readable regarding “patient gradualism” (I think that is what it said). I don’t know if that was a pre-cursor to your post, but if not you might want to try to post it again. I don’t think I have ever heard that term before. Thanks.

    Thanks for the heads up Meditating, i fixed it. I do love reading your post…

    Funny as h#ll! I will have to have type in the article about patent gradualism, check back it will be on this thread soon

  • Nice read!!!

    Thanks for posting. Gives me comfort to know I am not alone….in observing the crazy actions of others around me and others within society who just don’t see it.

    On some days, I feel like I am the only one with my eyes wide open.

    Meditating – You have had some of the most amazing opportunities in your life. Like a fly on the wall. I always enjoy your posts.

  • I have a Psychology degree and spent a lot of time studying human behavior, sociological principles, and biological bases for behavior. I completely agree with the fact that as humans we have “bought into” what SOCIETY says or does about many, many things, be it healthy eating, education, religious systems, social reform, politics, industrialization, commercialism, etc. The average consumer follows along with the commercialism, advertising with whatever they are interested in. (even in supposedly clean areas like sustainable practices and eating there is corruption and greenwashing). It is not only with the consumer. In my younger years, I worked in the HR department of a large retail store system. Even the way employees are “trained” is bringing about sociological forces upon them in order to get them to do and say what needs to be said to make the sales. AND they believe it themselves!! (Isn’t it interesting that IT is called “TRAINING” when you get a job or are learning anything new???) Just take a look at the pyramid marketing out there as well.

    Oh and we are not apes. we are humans. the fact that the apes were behaving that way for the common good says some interesting things. a lot of humans would allow people to walk down the street and fall into a hole….

    I can only try to be the best human I can and I spend a lot of time thinking about this topic. (especially in the educational system spectrum. As a home-educator I question MUCH in the current models and modes that ‘education’ is occurring in our society). But that’s a whole other book. ; )

    Thanks for posting this Dreasraw!

  • mamamilk :) I meant to imply that we are primates and should not forget that we are part of the natural world, not above it.


  • Blessings to you too! I know you were being tongue in cheek… I was too. : )

  • loving this post …. bump….

    Meditating…Here is the first part of this post! Everybody, tell me what you think! By the way, I know some of you have a different view on milk, personally I do not think we should drink it at all. But thats not the point of the post.

    PATIENT GRADUALISM Many times we have used the term “Patient Gradualism” but we suspect that few understand the term or even know about it. Patient Gradualism is actually the concept used to blueprint world rulership by the few over the many. I should add that this concept is also the basis of keeping a steady flow of the wealth of the world (yours and mine) into the coffers of the elite. Since the few elite are vastly outnumbered, they have to rule by deceit and manipulation. They are propaganda masters and they can make the people believe any ridiculous or stupid thing. For example, they have over time taught the American people that cows milk is a basic food to the point that almost nobody questions it. So what have our lords and masters done? They have gradually manipulated milk into pure commercialism. It is in fact today a non-food and a serious negative substance which by no definition can be called a food fit for human consumption. What is the truth about fake milk and real raw milk straight from the cow? The way “they” completely convert healthy raw milk to synthetic non-food is to cook and homogenize the milk under the pretense of purity, cleanliness and shelf life, changing it from a potent allergen (a substance that builds immunity to allergies) to a toxin. The good bacteria in raw milk is destroyed as well as the all-important bone forming enzyme “alkaline phosphates.” The substance is still sold as “milk” but the only similarity to it and real raw cows milk is the white color. Oh yes, they leave the milk sugar, which without the thing worse is “Fructose Corn Syrup” which is now used in almost every processed food and soft drink. Fructose corn syrup is not corn and it is not syrup. It is a synthetic sweetener that by-passes the pancreas causing it to eventually shut down, leaving a nation of diabetics in its wake. We are almost there and all the diabetic sales hype is testimony to a growing financial industry. It is big commerce and gullible public is unaware. What about “Patient Gradualism”? You just saw it in the pure adulteration of raw cows milk over a 75 year time period. They have to do it over time. The total reversal of values takes a long time and in many instances several lifetimes. The concept of “Patient Gradualism” simply stated is that conspiracy committed over time becomes acceptable and even embraceable. In other words, we accept things wholesale that would have triggered a revolution in the many years past. The ruling elite who control the government and their politicians calculate their goals to take years, surviving even the originators and creators of the esoteric blueprint of the “New World Order”. Meanwhile we the people have short-term horizons. We do not think in terms of generations, hence we do not recognize “Patient Gradualism” as a phenomenon of the New World Order. Comes to mind the men who created the “Federal Reserve System” in 1913. They have all died since but their fellow bankers, symbiotic invisible government “public policy” creators have carried on with all the wealth flowing to the system from the production and savings of the people. The Federal Reserve paper money debt system was needed by the invisible elite to create wars and buy politicians. They also buy the propaganda to drive the public’s mind in any direction desired. Propaganda is absolutely essential to the advancement of the New World Order. Also, fine-tuned propaganda literally down the populace, making them less able to critically think and stand up for themselves. Finally, when the system has advanced its goal beyond a point that would trigger a revolt, they reveal clearly their system even in their own publications. They actually incriminate themselves buy they do this knowing that few people will read their revelations and even fewer care. the system knows when they are past the point to cause backlash or rebellion. It is difficult to get people to rebel against a system that they were born into no matter how oppressive it in fact is. Aaron Russo (founder of the Constitution Party) in his brilliant move creation showed clearly that the U.S. has moved from “Freedom to Fascism” but few people care because fascism is still sold to the people as democracy, a term that the masses still equate with human freedom. You can see how the elite protect itself even in the face of exposure. I quote now from “Money in Colonial New England” printed by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston in 1973, page 33, giving a monetary history debate in 1973. Note how current this is for today: “Many Congressmen realized that paper money itself was nothing but a form of disguised taxation, said one legislator, ‘The unavoidable tax of depreciation is the most certain, expeditious, and invisible tax that could be devised.’ Every possessor of (paper) money has paid a tax in proportion to the time he held it.” But for Patient Gradualism and the psychic acceptance over time, millions of Americans would despise and be horrified at the paper money system that is daily and even while we sleep, stealing their production and savings. We accept any sort of slavery if it comes about through Patient Gradualism over a long period of time. In closing, I want to call your attention to one important thing. The IRS implies intimidation and force, backed by police power. But the greater evil, which taxes all the users of paper money is totally invisible, and without the enforcement of police power, is called INFLATION. Everyone desires paper money accepted through “Patient Gradualism!”

  • u have to love goneraw for post like this ….

  • MeditatingMeditating Raw Newbie

    MAMA MILK I agree with you about the education comment. It is amazing how some lectures just stick with you. The beginning of the study of re-socialization began with a focus on what the main goals are in the early grades, including pre-school. My professor stated that it was not really education as much as it was socializing children to many of the government goals in handling people, such as learning to obediently stand in lines, learning what is acceptable to say aloud, and accepting what they put on your plate in the cafeteria and then sit down. I remember being appalled to realize that this was what was happening to me when I was just a child.

    As for the commercialism, this is how people came to think that milk and soy are health foods, by following those advertised mantras.

    I keep telling my son the entire world is orchestrated and we just need to decide who our conductor is going to be. He thinks I have turned hippie (especially after I told him I quit using shampoo and just rinsed with vinegar instead).

    Thanks ardesmond2, great pic LOL!

    Meditating…Yes! It starts at birth if you dont have parents that teach you to think. Thank goodness for my mom!

  • YES YES YES! Thank God we are a home-educating family – We are doing everything we can to teach our children to THINK FOR THEMSELVES! I question everything – sometimes to a fault. I remain humbled in that I can’t throw the proverbial baby out with the bathwater, but dang, that ‘bathwater’ tends to get very mucky and stinky…. OOOHHH, I could go on and on and on.

    LOL to your hippie comment MEDITATING…. My husband is threatening to get a goneraw account and tell everyone here that his wife (who he already has called me hippie for years) has become a little too ‘natural’. I told him, “when I start to stink, then you can have some words”. So far, so good. ; )Of course, I never was big on showers and products anyway. I’m more of the ‘ritual sprinkling’ type.

    MAMA MILK I just busted out laughing on your stinky comment. I think the neighbors heard me.

    Sometime ago I went to spend a weekend with my son and I took my bath brushes. He said I could use his soap – NO WAY I wanted to use that fragrance-laden garbage. I use natural soap occasionally, but basically I brush down real well before and during the shower and it takes care of everything. I take a shower every other day too and mostly use fresh lemon juice for deodorant. Since then, every time I see him he sniffs me. Then he smiles and says “Just checking.”

  • So tired of the “Economic Slavery”. Wish I had a solution.

    Ready to Live Life to Live. Ready to see a Change.

    Dreasraw - Once again, Awesome Post!
