It is very tempting to think that the response to COVID-19 is rooted in altruism, reason, calm and reason. After all, who wants to believe they are being manipulated?
For nearly a decade, I have been publishing articles on psychology’s reality and Psychiatry They are widely used to encourage social changes. Personally, I think the best term for this is social engineering, because I love what engineers do.
Engineers design complex systems for specific purposes to withstand particular pressures. This is what this is. A complex social system designed to manufacture consent for an increasingly inhuman and dominating world governed. To survive you must maintain a basic level of public support. It must be able to withstand the pressures of any social movements that threaten this system.
I know it’s not very universal. My universe is the realization that we are all reincarnating here on Earth at this moment in time to deal with it. But that’s another story.
Now, I have three kids and I can’t get them to agree which flavor of ice cream to buy. So what does it take to get a nation of 330 million people on the same page? Or a world of billions?
Requires an understanding of human psychology. And fear. It takes a lot of fear.
Consider the following.
In September 2020 We reported on the fact that the official UK Covid response was directed by a dedicated public policy organization, the Behavioral Insights Team, Which is affectionately known as a “push unit.” In short, its job is to make things like standing six feet away at a Walmart sign appear life-saving, necessary, and natural.
It’s very good.
Now recently, The Telegraph Reports on the revelations stated that members of the influenza science group on behavior had publicly admitted that their work in using psychology to influence the public Covid reaction was “immoral” and “northern.”
“The Behavioral Science Independent Insights Group (SPI-B) – SPI-B provides behavioral science advice designed to anticipate and help people adhere to the interventions recommended by medical experts or epidemiologists.” [Gov.uk]
Oh really? Caught a grandmother in a bench park on a sunny afternoon is it universalism? No way.
Below is a long quote from that article. It is relevant because you need to break free from the idea that the options available to us now reflect an honest evaluation of the situation and thus equate to a logical and healthy response. We don’t have to accept the idea that life itself depends on an experimental vaccine. We are able to make rational decisions, unaffected by fear and peer pressure. This is the kind of things an adult should do.
“Scientists on a committee that promoted the use of fear to control people’s behavior during the Covid pandemic acknowledged that its work was“ immoral ”and“ inclusive. ”Members of the Scientific Group on Pandemic Influenza on Behavior (SPI-B) expressed their regret about the tactics in a new book on the role of Psychology in the government’s response to Covid-19.
SPI-B warned in March of last year that ministers need to increase the “perceived level of personal threat” from Covid-19 because “a large number of people still do not feel personally threatened enough”.
Gavin Morgan, the psychologist on the team, said, “It is clear that using fear as a means of control is not ethical. Using fear is a whiff of totalitarianism. It is not an ethical position of any modern government.”
Mr. Morgan spoke to author Laura Dodsworth, who spent a year investigating government tactics for her book State of Fear, published Monday.
SPI-B is one of the sub-committees that advises the Sage Scientific Advisory Group, led by Sir Patrick Vallance, Senior Scientific Adviser.
SPI-B scholar told Mrs. Dodsworth, “In March  The government was very concerned about compliance and they thought people didn’t want to be shut down. There were discussions about fear of needing to encourage compliance, and decisions were made about how to escalate the fear. The way we use fear is a miserable way. The use of fear has certainly been an ethical question. It was a strange experience. In the end, it backfired because people became very afraid. “
Another SPI-B member said, “You can call psychology“ mind control. ”This is what we do… Obviously we try to do it in a positive way, but it has been used outrageously in the past.”
One warned that “people are using the pandemic to seize power and drive through things that wouldn’t happen otherwise … We have to be very careful about tyranny that creeps in.”
Another said: “Without a vaccine, psychology is your main weapon … Psychology has had a really good epidemic, in fact.”
Another SPI-B member said that they were “stunned by the use of behavioral psychology as a weapon” during the pandemic, and that “psychologists apparently didn’t notice when he stopped altruism and became manipulative. They have so much power and this poisons them.” ~ The Telegraph
This is only a small part of the entire story. Human psychology is exploited in a wide variety of creative and destructive ways to encourage specific responses to a particular crisis without the social order engineered under the weight of truth and civil disobedience collapsing.
What else is it playing against your mind? What other social engineering tactics are employed Manufacturing approval And obedience? Do you really think that people think for themselves?
I will delve into this in more detail in future articles, but for now, bear in mind the amount of redundancy found in the messages, and the extent of open censorship over information that “relates to a current major health crisis and contradicts the official scientific consensus.” * The subconscious is programmed through Repetition.Behavior is largely determined by the subconscious.
If you feel stressed about current circumstances and find yourself going well just for the sake of getting along, don’t be afraid to tell your truth. Psychology can be used against you, but surely it can also be used to your advantage. Rationality is the antidote to fear.
