Many people are exploited every day in their work. The value they bring – to the company, to the company – is much greater than what they receive in return. In addition, a high percentage of them are aware of this and do not protest against their situation. They have very little, but the fear of losing the little they have is enormous, far greater than the confidence they have in their abilities. Today, we are going to talk about a factor that influences the whole equation: control of the mind.
The same goes for inequalities. Poor people accept systems in which they are becoming poorer and rich people richer, not on their own merits. Similarly, in the sexist societies in which we live, women have fewer opportunities. In the end, in the systems in which we live, most citizens are exploited in one way or another, which leads us to wonder why they accept it. One possible answer is in the control of the mind.
To keep people under control, whether for pay, bonds, or rules, you have to control your mind. Control of the mind will allow people not to question their situation, to do their work for a meager salary and not to criticize anything. That is, they think they are free when they are not. Psychology and control of the mind play a decisive role here.
Control of the mind
Control of the mind is based on reaching consensus (or the illusion of consensus). For everyone to agree on something. Obviously, not everyone will support the same idea for the same reason. There will be some who will accept it because they can not find another way out or because they feel that they will not be able to change. There will also be those who believe that this is the best idea possible or who simply have not questioned themselves. There may even be a psychological internalisation. The ultimate control of the mind.
In mental control techniques, there are several types to distinguish. We will keep two aspects: the psychological and the physiological. The psychological aspect concerns the internalisation of the disadvantaged situation, the oppression and discrimination of the existing social order and the affirmation of its traditions, norms and values, that is to say its ideology. On the other hand, the physiological aspect is related to the technological manipulation of minds.
The physiological aspect found is particularly useful in cases where psychological control does not work on the targeted individual. When people do not believe in an ideology, physiological aspects are used to make them accept, even if they do not believe it yet. These two aspects are explained in more detail below.
The psychological aspect of mind control
How can people internalize a condition in which they become losers? To answer it, there are different psychological mechanisms that we need to address. One of them is the transformation of boredom and frustration into aggression. This aggression, in turn, is channeled towards support for militarism.
An example of this is the strong support that US interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan have received. Another mechanism is the deviation of non-conformity towards consumerism or the reinforcement of religious values. Both encourage submissive personalities who believe in higher authorities and the existing social and economic order.
"The essence of psychological coercion is that those who act under its influence have the impression of acting on their own initiative.The victim of mental manipulation does not know that she is a victim." The bars of her prison are her invisible and she thinks she is free, the fact that she is not free is only apparent to others, her slavery is strictly objective. "
These factors are also reinforced by the fear of freedom. It is cultivated by education, traditions, norms and current values. Nor can the media be underestimated, as they help to reinforce the psychological impact by using techniques such as the "bombing" of information., which blocks thoughtful criticism. Finally, one of the most effective methods of controlling the mind is fear. This, combined with ignorance, can trigger feelings of panic and insecurity, leading to hasty decisions.
The physiological aspect of mind control
The physiological aspect of mind control refers to brain responses to electromagnetic and radio waves. Our brains have different electromagnetic frequencies that are related to different states of consciousness. Thus, we find the waves that correspond to the states of deep sleep and coma; the theta waves that correspond to normal sleep; alpha waves, which correspond to a state of relaxed awakening; and finally, beta waves, which are associated with a state of complete awakening.
Electronic devices can change these waves by causing our brain to enter different states. Of course, we will not go into a coma from a telephone, but these waves, along with the saturation of the stimuli provided by the mobile phone can make us maintain a state of full awakening even when we want to sleep . Similarly, there are devices that can cause sensory disorientation and are used in mass control.
By combining the two aspects of mind control and others that are not commented on, it is possible to take control of people by internalizing an ideology. These forms of control are modern slavery. To get by, there is nothing better than critical thinking and a good education.
