Brainwashing Techniques Institutions & The Media Utilize

Brainwashing Techniques

Brainwashing Techniques; Modus Operandi

The idea is to incept the seeds of doubt; if you want more clarification on this topic, just watch the movie Inception.  The top players have been incepting ideas into the masses for millennia; it works brilliantly and the results are highly rewarding so this process is not going to stop soon.  Once the seeds are sown, it is easy to use mass media to provide this seed with a nourishing environment and from seedling,  this doubt grows into a massive tree.

In the guise of trying to provide individuals with information, the medias main goal is to brainwash individuals. One of the main ploys is misdirection; this technique revolves around the ploy of creating a mountain out of a molehill to redirect the masses focus. Sadly, this technique works like a charm. The two most effective  Brainwashing institutions are public schools and the mass media

Brainwashing Techniques: Using paid experts to support a false narrative

This is another technique that works like a charm and it is blatantly used in the financial sector. Expert after expert spouts an opinion and often the opinions are in direct opposition to each other. The idea is twofold, first to load you with so much information that you don’t quite remember all the details. Secondly, the idea is to cover both ends of the story and when the outcome comes to pass, they make it look like that was the main outcome they were broadcasting all along. In other words,  when it comes to the markets, the experts cover both ends of the game, therefore there is no way they can lose.

However, what the masses fail to understand is that they are guessing just like the crowd is, but the only difference is that they control the media, while the people in the crowd are nothing but passive observers, waiting to be taken for a ride.

 

Brainwashing Techniques Employed By Public Schools

Does Public education kills curiosity:

The power of curiosity to contribute not only to high achievement but also to a fulfilling existence, cannot be emphasized enough. Curiosity can be defined as “the recognition, pursuit, and intense desire to explore, novel, challenging, and uncertain events.” In recent years, curiosity has been linked to happiness, creativity, satisfying intimate relationships, increased personal growth after traumatic experiences, and increased meaning in life. In the school context, conceptualized as a “character strength,” curiosity has also received heightened research attention. Having a “hungry mind” has been shown to be a core determinant of academic achievement, rivalling the prediction power of IQ.

Yet in actual schools, curiosity is drastically underappreciated.

As Susan Engel has documented in her book, The Hungry Mind, amidst the country’s standardized testing mania, schools are missing what really matters about learning: The desire to learn in the first place. As she notes, teachers rarely encourage curiosity in the classroom—even though we are all born with an abundance of curiosity, and this innate drive for exploration could be built upon in all students.

Curiously (pun intended), curiosity is also virtually absent from the field of gifted-and-talented education Full Story

State-Mandated Education & Brainwashing Techniques

Plato

Knowledge that is acquired under compulsion obtains no hold on the mind.

Chuang Tzu

Reward and punishment is the lowest form of education.

Mark Twain

I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.

Soap and education are not as sudden as a massacre, but they are more deadly in the long run.

Education consists mainly in what we have unlearned.

In the first place, God made idiots. This was for practice. Then he made school boards.

Oscar Wilde

The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did, it would prove a serious danger to the upper classes and probably lead to acts of violence.

Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.

Everyone who is incapable of learning has taken to teaching.

Winston Churchill

How I hated schools, and what a life of anxiety I lived there. I counted the hours to the end of every term when I should return home.

I always like to learn, but I don’t always like to be taught.

George Bernard Shaw

There is nothing on earth intended for innocent people so horrible as a school.

What we call education and culture is, for the most part, nothing but the substitution of reading for experience, of literature for life, of the obsolete fictitious for the contemporary real.

Bertrand Russell

Men are born ignorant, not stupid; they are made stupid by education.

Education is one of the chief obstacles to intelligence and freedom of thought.

Benjamin Franklin

He was so learned that he could name a horse in nine languages; so ignorant that he bought a cow to ride on.

Thomas Edison

I remember that I was never able to get along at school. I was at the foot of the class.

Henry David Thoreau

What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.

How could youths better learn to live than by at once trying the experiment of living?

H. L. Mencken

The average schoolmaster is and always must be essentially an ass, for how can one imagine an intelligent man engaging in so puerile an avocation.

George Saville, Marquis of Hallifax

The vanity of teaching doth oft tempt a man to forget that he is a blockhead..

Norman Douglas

Education is a state-controlled manufactory of echoes.

Paul Karl Feyerabend

The best education consists in immunizing people against systematic attempts at education.

Theodore Roosevelt

A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad.

Robert Frost

Education is hanging around until you’ve caught on.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I pay the schoolmaster, but it is the schoolboys who educate my son.

William Hazlitt

Anyone who has passed through the regular gradations of a classical education, and is not made a fool by it, may consider himself as having had a very narrow escape.

Laurence J. Peter

Education is a method whereby one acquires a higher grade of prejudices.

Anne Sullivan (I bow to her.)

I am beginning to suspect all elaborate and special systems of education. They seem to me to be built up on the supposition that every child is a kind of idiot who must be taught to think.

Alice Duer Miller

It is among the commonplaces of education that we often first cut off the living root and then try to replace its natural functions by artificial means. Thus we suppress the child’s curiosity and then when he lacks a natural interest in learning he is offered special coaching for his scholastic difficulties.

Florence King

Showing up at school already able to read is like showing up at the undertaker’s already embalmed: people start worrying about being put out of their jobs.

Emma Goldman

Since every effort in our educational life seems to be directed toward making of the child a being foreign to itself, it must of necessity produce individuals foreign to one another, and in everlasting antagonism with each other.

Edward M. Forster

Spoon feeding, in the long run, teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon.

Elbert Hubbard

You can lead a boy to college, but you cannot make him think.

Max Leon Forman

Education seems to be in America the only commodity of which the customer tries to get as little as he can for his money.

Phillip K. Dick

The trouble with being educated is that it takes a long time; it uses up the better part of your life and when you are finished what you know is that you would have benefited more by going into banking.

William John Bennett

If [our schools] are still bad maybe we should declare educational bankruptcy, give the people their money and let them educate themselves and start their own schools.

John Updike

School is where you go between when your parents can’t take you, and industry can’t take you.

Robert Buzzell

The mark of a true MBA is that he is often wrong but seldom in doubt.

Robert M. Hutchins

The three major administrative problems on a campus are sex for the students, athletics for the alumni, and parking for the faculty.

Flawed IQ Tests and Brainwashing Techniques

“The results disprove once and for all the idea that a single measure of intelligence, such as IQ, is enough to capture all of the differences in cognitive ability that we see between people,” said Roger Highfield, director of external affairs at the Science Museum in London.

“Instead, several different circuits contribute to intelligence, each with its own unique capacity. A person may well be good in one of these areas, but they are just as likely to be bad in the other two,” said Dr Highfield, a co-author of the study published in the journal Neuron.

“It has always seemed to be odd that we like to call the human brain the most complex known object in the Universe, yet many of us are still prepared to accept that we can measure brain function by doing a few so-called IQ tests”

We can all think of people that have poor reasoning and brilliant memories, or fantastic language skills but aren’t so hot at reasoning, and so on. Now once and for all we can say there is not a single measure such as IQ which captures all the intelligence that you see in people.”

“For a century or more many people have thought that we can distinguish between people, or indeed populations, based on the idea of general intelligence which is often talked about in terms of a single number: IQ. We have shown here that’s just wrong,” states Dr Highfield

“When you look at cognitive ability you can’t boil it down to fewer than three components – short-term memory, reasoning and a verbal component.” “There isn’t one component that explains all the variations we saw in all the tests.”

Schools Kill Creativity?

When the deputy director for NASA wanted to figure out how to separate creative types from the rest, he tapped George Land to create a test. The goal was to seclude those who could think outside the box and come up with atypical solutions to some of NASA’s toughest problems. So, in 1968, he created a test that accurately predicted creativity, but then he found himself faced with the question of where creativity comes from. Is it learned, or does it come from experience?

Land decided to apply his test to a range of age groups to see how creativity varied as we get older. He used a sample of 1600 children and continued the study into his subjects’ adulthood. Incredibly, he found that by the time they reached maturity, only 2 per cent of subjects passed the creativity test, despite their success with it as kids.

Robinson noticed that our education system teaches us that being wrong is the worst possible outcome. Nowhere is there a better example of this than standardized testing.

Our thought process is forced to conform to controlled paradigms of right and wrong, and so having ideas that don’t fit the mould are rejected. And in the past few decades, ascription to that paradigm has been pushed harder by prescribing drugs to children who don’t easily fall in line with the system’s ideal standards.  Full Story

Schools are creating mindless Bots

Our schools were designed to produce the workforce required by 19th-century factories. The desired product was workers who would sit silently at their benches all day, behaving identically, to produce identical products, submitting to punishment if they failed to achieve the requisite standards. Collaboration and critical thinking were just what the factory owners wished to discourage.

As far as relevance and utility are concerned, we might as well train children to operate a spinning jenny. Our schools teach skills that are not only redundant but counter-productive. Our children suffer this life-defying, dehumanising system for nothing.

The less relevant the system becomes, the harder the rules must be enforced, and the greater the stress they inflict. One school’s current advertisement in the Times Educational Supplement asks: “Do you like order and discipline? Do you believe in children being obedient every time? … If you do, then the role of detention director could be for you.” Yes, many schools have discipline problems. But is it surprising when children, bursting with energy and excitement, are confined to the spot like battery chickens? Full Story

Today’s Education System Churns Out  Zombies

“This idea that STEM is the only way is backwards,” he tells Quartz. “We produce a bunch of droids that way. Students get very little chance to write or express themselves. Everything we do is now knowledge-based.”

“They’re so used to order and structure and life isn’t like that,” Gillooly tells Quartz. “We’ve taken this notion of objectivity to the extreme.”

“People think of math as crunching numbers. Mathematicians don’t use numbers. We look for patterns, and that takes creative thinking,” Knudson tells Quartz.

“Then we argued about hexagons for an hour,” Knudson says. “The dynamic works best when you’ve got two professors from different colleges teaching a small number of kids at a time. That’s when they really get it.”

“Discoveries don’t come because you do everything right,” Truong tells Quartz. “You need to be open to the possibilities in a way that art fosters.” Full Story

The Tactical Investor’s Take On Brainwashing Techniques

Children start life with the right premise, however, due to brainwashing Adults always start with the wrong premise. Individuals start life with the wrong premise and then spend their entire life looking for the solution and never find it. If the premise is wrong, there can be no answer. It is, for this reason, we view children in a kinder light as for us- talking to a child is ten times more interesting than talking to most adults. You ask why? To which we will respond why ask why when you already know the answer.

Just in case you do not, the reason is simple Children (before they get contaminated speak their mind). When you talk to a child you do not have to put up a defence you know that child will tell you exactly what you might not want to hear. There is no diplomacy there is straight talk, and deep down most individuals are dying to be able to state what is on their minds, but most are afraid to do so because we have been schooled to do otherwise, and that is probably why Trump won.

Children enter strong and leave Mentally Challenged. Governments should work for the interest of their people, but they do not; instead, they focus on their needs and then give a slight cursory glance at the interests of their fellow men. In most cases, the agenda a government has is never in alignment with what the people want regardless of the nation.
