Second Amendment Brainwashing

BrainwashThe following statements have been credited to Adolf Hitler in the book Mein Kampf:

“The purpose of propaganda is not to provide interesting distraction for blase young gentlemen, but to convince, and what I mean is to convince the masses. But the masses are slow-moving, and they always require a certain time before they are ready even to notice a thing, and only after the simplest ideas are repeated thousands of times will the masses finally remember them….”

“The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan.”

“The art of propaganda lies in understanding the emotional ideas of the great masses and finding, through a psychologically correct form, the way to the attention and thence to the heart of the broad masses. The fact that our bright boys do not understand this merely shows how mentally lazy and conceited they are.”

“All propaganda must be popular and its intellectual level must be adjusted to the most limited intelligence among those it is addressed to. Consequently, the greater the mass it is intended to reach, the lower its purely intellectual level will have to be. …”

“To whom should propaganda be addressed? To the scientifically trained intelligentsia or to the less educated masses? It must be addressed always and exclusively to the masses. …”

Edward Bernays, nephew of Sigmund Freud and pioneer of public relations and propaganda usage, and who was also part of the propaganda force used by Wellington House (later Tavistock) to influence public opinion pertaining to World War I, said:

“Whatever of social importance is done today, whether in politics, finance, manufacture, agriculture, charity, education, or other fields, must be done with the help of propaganda.”

“Universal literacy was supposed to educate the common man to control his environment. Once he could read and write he would have a mind fit to rule. So ran the democratic doctrine. But instead of a mind, universal literacy has given him rubber stamps, rubber stamps inked with advertising slogans, with editorials, with published scientific data, with the trivialities of the tabloids and the platitudes of history, but quite innocent of original thought. Each man’s rubber stamps are the duplicates of millions of others, so that when those millions are exposed to the same stimuli, all receive identical imprints.”

What better way to “address(ed) always and exclusively the masses” than beginning with pre-school and ending up at college? Eventually, the education, through repeated propaganda, will begin in the womb. Americans should know, but probably do not, that our education factories were taken over many decades ago; the result of which is what we see today in our social and moral decline – or do you see such declines? For those that don’t know about the takeover, let me list, briefly, a few of the organizations and think tanks that decide what you and I were taught, what our children are being taught and our children’s children: Aspen Institute, Brookings Institute, Institute for Policy Studies, MIT, National Training Laboratories, Rand Research, Stanford Research Institute, Wharton School, Tavistock, and many more.

Guy Debord, in “Comments on the Society of the Spectacle” tells us: “Spectacular government, which now possesses all the means necessary to falsify the whole of production and perception, is the absolute master of memories just as it is the unfettered master of plans which will shape the most distant future. It reigns unchecked; it executes its summary judgments.”

The short of it is, you and I have NOTHING to say about how our kids are educated and what crap is being drummed into their heads. This should have become obvious long ago when Lyndon B. Johnson, as part of his propaganda tool called, War on Poverty, pushed and passed the Elementary and Secondary School Act. Designed for failure (Failure in this case pertains to the fact that the program failed to accomplish what Americans were told it would accomplish.) it set the stage for the next step toward the manipulation of education (propaganda) for the masses – always the masses.

In 1979 president Jimmy Carter created a stand-alone Department of Education – a better way for centralized government to wield power and brainwash the masses – Spectacular Government.

Hiding behind propaganda to, “establish standards of excellence for all children,” President Clinton and Al Gore created the “Goals 2000” education program. After propaganda was used to convince the people that our education system was “failing,” (all designed to “fail” and be replaced with a new program.) along came George W. Bush who was going to, once and for all, end the “failure of our schools” and thus was born, “No Child Left Behind.” Consequently, many children got left behind (again propaganda efforts to convince Americans our schools were failing) and with the election of Barack Obama, government got brave enough, the result of years of brainwashing and effective propaganda, to implement an education program with communism built right in – Common Core.

Common Core is a global initiative designed as a one-size-fits-all propaganda and brainwashing tool to be used and administered by a centralized, one-world government or global department of education. If successful, by the standards of the global fascists pushing the program, Americans and their children will be learning what a centralized, fascist government intends for them to learn.

And yet, we eagerly deny that there is anything wrong with our education system and with it refuse to accept that we have all been brainwashed to believe and accept certain propaganda that influences heavily the way we think and act, i.e. trust Government.

It’s odd, that should anybody consider these possibilities, the way the brainwashing and propagandizing works, the disbelief is remarkably ridged, forcing people to deny that such sinister acts exist, claiming they would recognize it if they saw it. Thus the difficulty in convincing brainwashed people they are brainwashed. What does it take?

Note: If you are not, in the slightest, convinced of any of this brainwashing mechanisms, it is quite pointless to continue reading.

Recently I wrote, “Second Amendment is Considered ‘Infringable’ by Most.” I presented examples that showed how the Courts went out of their way to protect other rights, such as First and Fifth Amendments, and failed to show the same perspective and respect for the Second Amendment and its protection.

Heavily entrenched into debates about the Second Amendment, is the nonsense about “reasonable restrictions.” Sometimes discussed, even by people who self-proclaim their avid and unwavering support of the Second Amendment, is that there should be restrictions on what kinds of “arms” should be limited by fascism, infringing on the Second Amendment.

I have often heard the argument from those opposed to the right to keep and bear arms, that the Second Amendment was designed and intended for “the times in which it was written” – whatever exactly that means. The twisted reasoning here is that at the time the Bill of Rights was crafted, there was a need that some people should be armed but only armed with the weapons of that day – i.e. a musket. It might be assumed that the common man didn’t own a cannon because he couldn’t afford one. But, if he could afford it, and wanted it, he had the right to keep and bear ARMS. Today, the same financial restrictions apply, however, one does not have a right to own them even if he could afford to.

As arguments go, to claim that the Second Amendment was intended for the events and circumstances of 1791, then the Second Amendment should be intended for the events and circumstances of 2016. Instead, the call is to get rid of the right, because the people are so heavily brainwashed they can’t recognize their hypocrisy and ignorance. It’s difficult to blame the people. To some degree, they just don’t know what they are doing and saying – by design. Come out of the whore, the Bible tells us.

Because we refuse to review and study real history, the failure becomes exacerbated through the devising of such ridiculous conclusions that the Second Amendment was intended to apply to only the ownership of a rifle or pistol. History and the words of those founders of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, show us the reasoning behind and the necessity of a Second Amendment. The short of it was that the Second Amendment was, “necessary to the security of a free State,” and to protect us from the tyrannies of a centralized government.

If you have belief in the U.S. Constitution, then you should recognize that the writers did NOT give themselves all the power and control the U.S. Government of today has. The Founders clearly stated that the necessity of the Second Amendment was to protect the citizenry from the government – not necessarily the government of other countries but our very own U.S. Government. Thus, with the advent of sinister applications of propaganda and the subsequent usurpation of education by those intent on propagandizing the masses for sinister reasons, we see a complete change in the need to keep and bear arms as protection from our government, to a calling upon government for protection. Do we not recognize or understand this change? Evidently not. There is little reason to think we no longer need protection from our own government, and yet, many, especially gun haters, sincerely are convinced the United States Government would not harm its citizenry, therefore there should no longer be a need for a Second Amendment.

I might ask the same questions as Patrick Henry: “Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?”

Often discussed with Second Amendment issues is the infringement upon the kinds of “arms” this government allows its subjects to possess. Embedded fear, through propaganda and education/brainwashing, creates unreasonable and unrealistic perceptions of what a citizen might do with a cannon but because of misled trustworthiness, considers it proper in the hands of government. Historians probably remember there was considerable debate about whether this country would have a standing army in time of peace. Noah Webster told us that before a “standing army” can rule, the citizenry must be disarmed. It was fresh in the minds of colonialists the power of tyrannical governments. Many were opposed to the government having an army. And why? They understood the dangers of standing armies and ill-thinking politicians and power hungry perverts.

Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution provides for Congress to “raise and support Armies,” but were restricted to the funding of such armies to not more than two years.

With the power of Congress to raise and support Armies, the argument then can be made that in order for a free American, of self-determination, to limit the threat of government tyranny over himself, the right of the people to keep and bear arms should not be limited by the government. The only reason a government would place those limitations on its people is to ensure that the people can never have anything near the right to keep and bear arms as the government does, under the guise of national defense. Therefore, the intent of the Second Amendment becomes ineffectual. Our belief that our self-possessed armament is truly a deterrent to tyranny is dishonest. Slavery is but one act of Congress or that of a tyrant, away.

If the Second Amendment, determined to be a right of the people by the U.S. Supreme Court, and, as the right claims, the purpose of the Second Amendment is “necessary to the security of a free state,” to protect the people from the tyrannies of too powerful governments, why then do we allow the government to limit our Second Amendment rights?

Do you really trust government that much? I certainly have a lot more trust in my neighbor than I do this, or any other, centralized government.

With disinformation and misinformation, combined with outright lies, embedded into American’s minds, not only do we fear that any fellow citizen should have the right to own automatic weapons, grenades and rocket launchers, our ignorance and lack of ability to think and reason, places all of us at a greater risk of that fear of a despotic government and slavery. We just cannot and will not see that.

Consider the many who buy into the concept that a well-armed military, including a large, modern army with high-tech weapons and mass-killing weapons is a deterrent to foreign invasions, or of war, by tyrannical governments. And yet, these same would not even consider that same rhetoric to apply to the need and purpose for a citizenry to be armed well enough to at least put the fear of God into a group of corrupt politicians to remind them it might not be so easy to place Americans into governmental servitude.

I doubt that few can see or understand my thoughts and reasoning. I never expected that they would. Instead of people asking the right questions, like why do we allow government and hate-filled groups to infringe upon the Second Amendment, directly destroying the only real protection we have against tyrannical government and preserving all other rights, they allow their fear, bred from brainwashing, to warp their thinking that arms in the hands of a lawful citizenry is more dangerous than in the hands of a government – a government known to have murdered and killed millions of people during the span of its history, little, if any of it, justified.

We, as a society, blind to the propaganda and products of the brainwashing, trust government over our neighbors. It’s just unbelievable! Even though recent polling, another propaganda tool, shows that less than 10% of Americans trust their government and Congress, we still are of the mindset that unlimited arms in the hands of corrupt government is better placed than in the hands of a people – a people once believing that they were the government and keeping and bearing arms guaranteed their protection from government.

Hasn’t the brainwashing worked marvelously?
