The Anatomy of Slavespeak
Here’s the short version:
In case you didn’t know, TV is a hypnotic color box that warps your mind.
Everything in your News broadcast is censored by corporate influence:
TV is the leading cause of the “Dumbing Down of America“
“The shrinking public attention span fostered by video is closely tied to the second important anti-intellectual force in American culture: the erosion of general knowledge.”
When my website consisted mostly of words and links, the average view time-per-page was 1 minute 30 seconds, regardless of content. I added images between every other paragraph, and my average view time-per-page jumped to 5 minutes 30 seconds. The moral is this: TV has trained you to search out shiny images, and you (sheeple) now lack the concentration to read anything for more than 60 seconds before you start craving mindless activity.
“In the last 50 years we have created platforms in which we present things in surreal time,” … “When you condition the mind to become accustomed to high levels of input, there’s a chance that reality can just become boring.”
What we really needed was practice in paying attention over long periods of time. That’s what would have given us the power to see that we can prevail, and that, thanks to the more stubborn and patient among us, we have, from time to time, and we will.
This guy already understands, are you starting to? So how do we activists combat this trend while still promulgating our messages? I don’t have the answer, however I can at least tell you what not to do:
The seven deadly sins of activist etiquette
Deadly Sin #1: Self-Promotion at the Expense of the Movement
Deadly Sin #2: Unsolicited Bulk Email
Deadly Sin #3: Hacktivism (here we disagree, but w/e)
Deadly Sin #4: Violating Copyright
Deadly Sin #5: Nagging
Deadly Sin #6: Violating Privacy
Deadly Sin #7: Being Scary
False Left-Right Paradigm
Anyone who tells you X group is bad, and Y group is awesome, is using Slavespeak.
Examples of False Left-Right Paradigms:
- Christian vs Muslim
- White vs Black
- Red Sox vs Yankees
- Republican vs Democrat
- Gay vs Straight
These “pretend wars” serve only to keep us divided and the internationally rich (1%) love it. Sheeple search the internet for “self-affirming” literature, thus no growth occurs. If you hate Muslims, going to a hate website only reaffirms your already twisted beliefs. The best thing any Human can do is value the opinions of others that are different from yours, as only through empathy and attempting to understand your opposites will self-growth occur. When people come together and share opposing views, magic happens. The illusions of a false enemy fade away, and you are left with a Human, flawed and vulnerable. Love one another and burn with fire all those that would stoke the flames of rage against our fellow man.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU’LL EVER READ:
The Anatomy of Slavespeak
Here are some highlights:
Benefits of Understanding Slavespeak
Once you understand political Slavespeak (the language used to establish and maintain master-slave relationships), you become very aware of how those who don’t understand Slavespeak can be dominated, subjugated, and controlled by words — essentially enslaved by words. Correspondingly, you become impervious to external control through words. In other words, you enjoy more freedom — you have more options available to you.
“It is hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head.”
– Sally Kempton
“Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.”
– Joseph Stalin
“Language creates spooks that get into our heads and hypnotize us.”
– Robert Anton Wilson, Introduction to The Tree of Lies (by Christopher S. Hyatt. Ph.D.)
L. Ron Hubbard “ON CONTROL AND LYING”
THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN CONTROL PEOPLE IS TO LIE TO THEM. You can write that down in your book in great big letters. The only way you can control anybody is to lie to them. When you find an individual is lying to you, you know that the individual is trying to control you. One way or another this individual is trying to control you. That is the mechanism of control. This individual is lying to you because he is trying to control you — because if they give you enough misinformation they will pull you down the tone scale so that they can control you. Conversely, if you see an impulse on the part of a human being to control you, you know very well that that human being is lying to you. Not “is going to,” but “is” lying to you.
Check these facts, you will find they are always true. That person who is trying to control you is lying to you. He’s got to tell you lies in order to continue control, because the second you start telling anybody close to the truth, you start releasing him and he gets tougher and tougher to control. So, you can’t control somebody without telling them a bunch of lies. You will find that very often Command has this as its greatest weakness. It will try to control instead of leading. The next thing you know, it is lying to the [illegible]. Lie, lie, lie, and it gets worse and worse, and all of a sudden the thing blows up.
Well, religion has done this. Organized religion tries to control, so therefore must be lying. After a while it figures out (even itself) that it is lying, and then it starts down tone scale further and further, and all of a sudden people get down along this spring-like bottom (heresy) and say, “Are we going into apathy and die, or are we going to revolt?” And they revolt, because you can only lie to people so long.
Unfortunately there is always a new cycle of lying.”
“My name is Alice, so please your Majesty,” said Alice very politely; but she added to herself, “Why, they’re only a pack of cards, after all. I needn’t be afraid of them!” [emphasis added]
…The Queen turned crimson with fury, and, after glaring at her for a moment like a wild beast, began screaming, “Off with her head! Off with–”
“Nonsense!” said Alice, very loudly and decidedly, and the Queen was silent.”
– Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
A final warning:
There are men who fight one day and they are good,
others struggling a year and are better,
there are those who struggle most years and are still best,
but there are those who struggle all their lives: they are indispensable.
~ Bertolt Brecht
You have the power to change the world. Stay clear of the activist’s deadly sins, recognize Slavespeak, and destroy fear. Fear is the mind killer.
