Today's Freedom Quote:

"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. When there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws." -- Ayn Rand

Weavers of Freeorder

Weavers of freeorder are pattern seers, connection makers, thinkers, artists,
entrepreneurs who work for all who discover that their home is Open Network.

Open Network names a freeorder comprised of and arising from
all aspects of the world
in which an explorer of sovereign spirit may rejoice.

It is very old.
No one invented it.

Freeorder is a balance among designed and spontaneous orders conducive to quest.

Quest is an aesthetics governed pattern of explorations
in course of which resonance grows.

Resonance is the expectation of magic.

Magic is emergent,
an awareness arising from a fusing through present action
of intensity, sensitivity, integrity, and wonder.

Such capabilities of human beings are the reason why
Open Network came into being,
why it continues to exist,
and why it is inextinguishable.

WFC Contents


Introduction

World Freedom Challenge (WFC) is a challenge to freedom activists all over the world to consider the activities, ideas, and suggestions presented on this page. I invite you to examine this series of concepts, principles, and activities. It may become possible for your personal freedom to grow faster than is currently the case for most individuals.

Any individual who values his or her personal freedom can start at the beginning of this series of concepts, principles, and activities, and progress toward greater personal freedom.

If enough individuals expand their personal freedom... some really good things could happen in the world! Hopefully, that will become evident as you look over these pages.

(The column to the right (light-yellow background) represents the "old" BuildFreedom writings. This column contains new material added during 2010.)

It's quite possible that my approach to freedom might be, in some respects, incomplete and even mistaken. You're welcome to tell me what you think I should improve -- feedback@buildfreedom.com

I would like to introduce you to Schaeffer Cox and his "Solution" to the "Freedom Challenge."

According to reports, in 2011 Schaeffer Cox was arrested for plotting the murders of "government officials" in Alaska, and subsequently, in January 2012, a federal grand-jury indictment was returned against Cox and two alleged accomplices. BuildFreedom.com categorically rejects the initiation of violence against anyone, including "government officials." Cox has also been accused of initiating violence against his wife. He has expressed religious beliefs. In the opinion of BuildFreedom.com, these factors should be separated from the "Cox strategy" and don't invalidate it.

In broad terms, the "Cox strategy" can be described as "creating alternatives to replace the corrupt state when it collapses." Specifically, Cox has put in place a "liberty bell system" (video #7/11, above) and common law courts (videos #8/11 and #9/11, above), and organized a militia (video #9/11, above).

Is the "Cox strategy" a complete colution or a partial solution? Will other freedom leaders and organizers implement the "Cox strategy" in more parts of the world? Will the "Cox strategy" take root and grow?

Cox raises the issue: "Who is the enemy?" Should the people constituting the "corrupt state" be regarded as the enemy?

What about people in corporations who own and finance many politicians and bureaucrats?

What about taxpayers who finance the "corrupt state?"

I discovered Schaeffer Cox on the Voluntary Society website, which includes three main sections: "Conditioning," "Concept," and "Action." Cox also talks about people being "conditioned."

Is the enemy the people who make the "corrupt state" possible by "conditioning" people?

Is the "conditioning" itself the enemy?

Is the "corrupt state" allowed to exist because most people are uninformed, misinformed, gullible, obedient, and relatively helpless? Who or what is the most basic enemy?

I also came across HansHoppe.com, The Property And Freedom Society, and Hoppe's article The Property And Freedom Society -- Reflections After Five Years, in which he writes about "unmask[ing] the State and showcase it for what it really is: an institution run by gangs of murderers, plunderers and thieves, surrounded by willing executioners, propagandists, sycophants, crooks, liars, clowns, charlatans, dupes and useful idiots -- an institution that dirties and taints everything it touches."

To what extent do the people and activities featured so far on this page provide real solutions? How far do they go toward neutralizing the real enemies? What activities need to be added to increase the prospects for freedom?

Google "permanent tourist" and "perpetual traveler" to find out how some people "escape from the system."

What makes it possible for Hoppe's "gangs of murderers, plunderers and thieves" to effectively run the world, "farming" people as "human livestock," as indicted by Molyneux, and reducing most of the world's human population to the level alluded to by Hoppe as "dupes and useful idiots?"

Is it possible that the vast majority of humans suffer from certain "defects of human nature" that keep them stuck at the level of "dupes and useful idiots?"

Despite so many great minds having promoted freedom for so long, is it possible that freedom as a cause might be hopeless? The iron grip of the "world elite plutonomists" may be too strong to overcome by any freedom activists -- no matter how competent, effective, and efficient they might become... no matter what "freedom activities" they might set in motion... no matter what or how well they might organize... no matter what strategies or tactics they might employ...

On the other hand, it may be possible to create a network or coalition of advanced freedom activists who gain sufficient control over themselves, their own lives, and enough key resources to...? (Open Question?)

On these pages I use the term "gangster political predator" (GPP). I've previously used the term "terrocrat" (short for "terrorist bureaucrat" or "coercive political agent") GPP and terrocrat are equivalent terms. I use the term "plutonmist" (deriving from "plutonomy") to refer to a member of the "financial/corporate elite." Plutonomists typically use their money power to influence and even control GPPs. I also use the term "civilon" ("civilized human") -- a pejorative term. Civilons include GPPs, plutonomists, and their believers and supporters, as well as most of their "beneficiaries." The terms GPP, plutonomist, and civilon always refer to individual human beings. Taking cues from Molyneux and Hoppe, I also use the terms "human livestock" ("sheeple?") and "useful idiots." Most civilons (civilized people) can be described as human livestock, sheeple, dupes, or useful idiots.

"If you make yourselves sheep, the wolves will eat you."
-- Benjamin Franklin

I invite freedom activists to advance further beyond the level of "civilized sheep" to become "FreeWeavers" who create "Freedorder."

The concept of "Potential Game-Change Factor" (PGCF) is most important. If, in their efforts to promote freedom, freedom activists were to focus on addressing PGCFs -- factors that have the potential to "change the game" -- they could reap much greater rewards for their efforts.


Websites Related to People Who May Be Prospects for the "Cox Strategy"

More websites can be found by searching online for "militia movement," "militia groups," "secession movement," "nullification movement," "freedom activist," "liberty activist," "freedom radio," "liberty radio," "patriot radio," "tax freedom," "overthrow government," "sovereign citizen," "sovereign americans," "common law citizen," "common law society," "free americans," "jural society," "ron paul," "tea party," "ayn rand," "objectivism," "libertarian organizations," "libertarian activist," "libertarian radio," "anarchist," "anarchist radio," "anarcho-capitalism," "spontaneous order," "brainwashing," "propaganda," "unlearning," "unschooling," "deschooling," "daniel quinn," "disinformation," "underground economy," "health freedom," "drug freedom," "free banking," "tom greco," "john zube," "panarchy," "alternative currency," "ec riegel," "barter system," "federal reserve scam," "gold as money," "silver as money," "monetary freedom," etc.

Many websites have links to other related sites. Some websites have forums where it may be possible to find freedom activists who could be persuaded to check out the "Cox strategy" and other aspects of World Freedom Challenge (WFC).

The essence of the "Cox strategy" is to create alternatives to corrupt "plutonomist-GPP systems." The expectation is that when the latter fail, there will be viable systems to take their place. Maybe the "Cox strategy" can be used as a model to also create voluntary alternatives in other areas.


FreeWeavers

The term "FreeWeaver" was inspired by Leif Smith of The Explorers Foundation. I use the term "FreeWeaver" and demarcate several "levels" of FreeWeavers:

  • 1. Level-1 FreeWeavers who promote freedom by attempting to educate people about freedom. They may also attempt to change coercive political systems that violate individual freedom. Libertarian political parties tend to operate at this level. Ron Paul tends to operate at this level.

  • 1a. Level-1a FreeWeavers who promote freedom by utilizing humor to satirize, ridicule, and mock GPPs, politicians, bureaucrats, plutonomists, etc. For specific suggestions for different parts of the world, see WFC - Page 2 - Use Humor as a Weapon to Undermine Gangster Political Predators (GPPs). For more information relevant to this topic, see also WFC - Page 3 - Deligitimizing Gangster Political Predators (GPPs).

  • 2a. Level-2a FreeWeavers who organize their lives and affairs so as to minimize the degree to which people in coercive political systems violate their personal freedom. Harry Browne's book How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World addresses this level. "Permanent Tourists" (PTs) operate at this level. (If you can organize your life and affairs so as to minimize or eliminate the extent to which GPPs interfere with your life, you greatly increase your persoal freedom -- a PGCF.)

  • 2b. Level-2b FreeWeavers who create Freeorders. This level could be regarded as "creating the freedom infrastructure" that makes it easier for Level-2a FreeWeavers to live their lives as freely as possible. MonsterPreLaunch can be regarded as a Freeorder. A currency/payment system such as c-gold can be regarded as a Freeorder and part of "freedom infrastructure." (More PGCFs.)

  • 2c. Level-2c FreeWeavers who utilize technology to influence human behavior. It's possible to influence people to engage in pro-freedom behavior (because it's in their best interest) even though they know little or nothing about freedom and couldn't care less. Creating freedom-enhancing video games and "Massively Multiplayer Online Games" (MMOGs) could be done at this level. (More PGCFs.)

  • 2d. Level-2d FreeWeavers who use "legal" strategies and arguments (often flawed) to "fight" bureaucrats in court. So-called "tax protestors" and "patriots" tend to operate at this level. See Adventures in Legal Land The "Cox strategy" covered in the Introduction belongs to this level. (More PGCFs.)

  • 3. Level-3 FreeWeavers have cleared (or are in the process of clearing) all "conditioning" from their minds. They have completed (or are in the process of completing) their "political deprogramming." (Another PGCF.)

FreeWeaver Associates Wanted

I envisage a FreeWeaver Network -- a "horizontal organization" -- a Freeorder.

FreeWeavers "pay" themselves. This could include utilizing MonsterPreLaunch

A FreeWeaver could be responsible for maintaining one or more BuildFreedom.com pages. He or she could use these pages to promote products, services, and/or programs, including his or her MonsterPreLaunch business.

A FreeWeaver could have his or her own pages on BuildFreedom.com and use them as described above.

The following kinds of FreeWeaver Associates are wanted:

  • FreeWeaver Coordinator -- makes the overall operation as efficient, effective, and successful as possible.

  • FreeWeaver Strategists and Planners.

  • FreeWeaver Frameworker -- creates the online framework that facilitates cooperation between Freeweavers and the execution of Projects.

Potential Game-Change Factors (PGCFs)

The "Cox strategy" featured in the Introduction, if implemented more widely, could become a Potential Game-Change Factor (PGCF).

Following is a chart computed by dividing the change in US GDP by the change in US Debt:

Potential Market
Leverage Segments

Google web/video search results (Nov-Dec 07) indicate potential participants in FreeWeaver projects -- particularly "people outside mainstream" -- or people willing to consider unconvetional and controversial ideas. (Note: "15,400,000 / 28,446" denotes 15,400,000 web results and 28,446 video results.)

The significance of these statistics is that there are thousands (sometimes millions) of web pages and hundreds (sometimes thousands) of online videos related to certain topics. Some of the videos have been watched by millions of people, e.g., "Collateral Murder.". Many of these people may be prospective participants in FreeWeaver Projects.

That certain videos have been watched by millions of people demonstrates that someone can make a video and then use the Internet to get millions of people to watch that video.

YouTube provides information you can use to identify (and often contact) people who like a particular video.

Because they riducule both PGGs and their religious counterparts, anyone who appreciates George Carlin and/or Bill Maher may be a prospect for FreeWeaver Projects.

(Note: "12,500 / 2" denotes 12,500 web results and 2 video results from Google searches. Items in red, above, were added during Nov-Dec 08. The others were added during Nov-Dec 07.)

The above numbers can be used to get an idea of what people are interested in, and what they are sufficiently interested in to make videos and post them online. You can use them to design a FreeWeaver Project, to get an idea of how many people might be interested in a particular FreeWeaver Project, and to decide how to present and promote the project. You can get statistics of how often any particular video has been viewed.

Some people upload large numbers of videos to YouTube. Some of these people have significant numbers of subscribers.

As as an example, a FreeWeaver Project could be designed to appeal to Ron Paul supporters (note how "his numbers" have grown from Nov-Dec 07 to Nov-Dec 08). The Internet, particularly YouTube, can be used to contact Ron Paul supporters. Many Ron Paul supporters may be disappointed with his 2008 election results, and may be open to participate in other projects.

(The numbers for "The Secret" may reflect the prevalence of magical thinking and the gullibility of the "Oprah crowd.")

Nathan Martin describes it as "THE Most Important Chart of the CENTURY" and "the elephant in the room that nobody sees or can describe." He also writes:

"What it shows is how much productivity is gained by infusing $1 of debt into our debt backed money system.

Back in the early 1960s a dollar of new debt added almost a dollar to the nation's output of goods and services. As more debt enters the system the productivity gained by new debt diminishes. This produced a path that was following a diminishing line targeting ZERO in the year 2015. This meant that we could expect that each new dollar of debt added in the year 2015 would add NOTHING to our productivity.

Then a funny thing happened along the way. Macroeconomic DEBT SATURATION occurred causing a phase transition with our debt relationship. This is because total income can no longer support total debt. In the third quarter of 2009 each dollar of debt added produced NEGATIVE 15 cents of productivity, and at the end of 2009, each dollar of new debt now SUBTRACTS 45 cents from GDP!

This is mathematical PROOF that debt saturation has occurred. Continuing to add debt into a saturated system, where all money is debt, leads only to future defaults and to higher unemployment."

You may want to Google "debt saturation" and form your own conclusions about the implications of the chart. If debt as a tool to increase economic production no longer works, or works far less well than it used to, this could be a PGCF.

Next, you may want to check out the Grandfather Economic Report by Michael Hodges.

The so-called "soviet union" collapsed because of PGCFs. Could the same happen to the "american empire?"

Juan Enriquez says some important things about the prospect of hyperinflation wiping out the "US$." According to Roger Gallo, "Juan Enriquez implies that there will soon be a new species of humanoid."

Roger Gallo has published Harry Browne's Freedom Principles By Frederick Mann. Studying and implementing such principles could constitute a PCCF at the individual level.

Roger Gallo has also written an article "TED - Reduce The Role Of Goverment," featuring a video by UK politician David Cameron, leader of the Conservative Party: "The next age of government." To watch the video on YouTube, Click Here.

While Cameron says some important things about debt and transparency, and it may be expedient for some freedom activists and even FreeWeavers to support the likes of Cameron, some issues may be important:

  1. Should he be denounced as a GPP (gangster political predator)?

  2. Should he be regarded as a member of "gangs of murderers, plunderers and thieves, surrounded by willing executioners, propagandists, sycophants, crooks, liars, clowns, charlatans, dupes and useful idiots?" -- see Introduction.

  3. If his pay is effectively collected at the point of a gun in the form of taxes, what are the implications? If his victims refuse to pay these taxes, will they be fined, jailed, and/or murdered?

  4. He presents a "civilized veneer." By not also disclosing the real (mafia-like) nature of his "business," is he guilty of misrepresentation and deception?

  5. To Cameron, can "power to people" be regarded as "power granted by him and his fellow GPPs?"

  6. "Human nature" is most important -- practically all humans have in their brains a "Pecking Order Bully System" (POBS) program -- see Civilization. This is a major reason why civilons readily accept the likes of bullies like Cameron as their "masters," rather than rejecting them as "the scum of the earth."

  7. His "post-bureaucratic age" with "people control" seems like pure BS. It seems similar to a lion claiming that it has decided to stop killing and eating its prey.

  8. JFK's "noble sentiment" quote is typical of how GPPs dupe their victims.

  9. Comment on YouTube by globalbankfraud: "He'll say anything just to get votes but won't keep his promises. He backed down over the Lisbon Treaty. These guys are just Theatre Puppets who sell us short to Big Business. As soon as they get elected they start making things easy for their sponsors. Tony Blair getting £2 Million per year from JP Morgan, Barack Obama employing Wall St Lobbyists after they paid for his campaign. The whole con game is rife."

During April, 2010, Michele Bachmann (so-called "republican representative of Minnesota") used the term "gangster government." Bill Clinton objected to this with the phrase "elected officials," implying that because certain people were "elected" they were not gangsters. Questions:

  1. On the same grounds as Cameron above, should Bachmann and Clinton be regarded as GPPs?

  2. If a mafia leader is "elected," does this make him or her a "non-gangster?"

  3. If children are forced into "schools" where they're subjected to political brainwashing, can their subsequent "political votes" be regarded as having any validity?

  4. To the extent that freedom activists fail to expose the likes of Cameron, Bachmann, Clinton, and Obama as gangsters, are they traitors to their own cause?

In many parts of the world, children are forced into so-called "schools" where they're brainwashed and conditioned to become "government slaves." If the methodology or technology could be developed to enable them to free themselves from political brainwashing, this would be a PGCF.

Part of "human nature" can be regarded as a "Primitive Political Animal Mentality" (PPAM). Part of PPAM is the "Pecking Order Bully System" (POBS) program referred to above. If the methodology or technology could be developed to enable humans to transcend their PPAM, this would be a PGCF.

The book Why We Lie: The Evolutionary Roots of Deception and the Unconscious Mind by David Livingston Smith reveals important aspects of "human nature." The likes of Cameron and Obama may be oblivious to most of their own lies. Most humans are duped by the lies of Cameron and Obama -- most likely including author Smith himself! This gullibility is part of PPAM. If the methodology or technology could be developed to enable humans to recognize the lies of the likes of Cameron and Obama, this would be a PGCF.

Consider a hypothetical world in which people in corporations didn't steal money from their employees ("tax withholding") on behalf of GPPs, and didn't snitch on their employees by sending "earnings reports" to GPPs. In such a world it would be more difficult and expensive for GPPs to steal ("collect taxes"). If GPPs could persuade or compel people in corporations to steal on their behalf and snitch on their employees, would this be a PGCF for GPPs?

If large numbers (not limited to freedom activists and FreeWeavers) could earn a living in ways not subject to "corporate theft on behalf of GPPs," would this be a PGCF? Consider ProfitClicking!

If freedom activists and FreeWeavers were to focus on identifying PGCFs and acting on the most promising ones... (Open Question?)

If enough people (sheeple?) could find out that they're effectively being farmed like livestock by GPPs (and often by plutonomists) -- see Stefan Molyneux's The Story of Your Enslavement -- would this be a PGCF?


Free Agency

The idea of "free agency" is that individuals become financially independent so they can spend more time on improving themselves and expanding freedom. For an elaboration, see Mark Joyner's Construct One - The Freedom Agent.

Mark Joyner has also created Simpleology 101, which is available free, and can be applied to learn to take more efficient, effective, and productive actions.

Also relevant here is Mark Joyner's Construct Zero - Unifying Social Dynamics.

Fee Agent Nation

Did you know that over 25 million Americans are now self-employed? If you want to be your own boss, you may want to get the excellent book Free Agent Nation: The Future of Working for Yourself by Daniel H. Pink. The following quote is most important:

If actions are the architecture of our lives, premises are the plumbing. You can't see them -- but like the pipes or wiring that snake invisibly through a home, they determine the capabilities of the structure and the efficiency of its performance. Stick with me on this analogy, because it's about to get slightly weird. Imagine that a few strange people crept into your home while you wer on vacation, and replaced your electrical system with solar power. Then suppose they removed the concrete foundation and substituted wheels. And say they also decided that your second bathroom ought to be a mini baskeball court -- so they redid the plumbing and added a hardwood floor and a hoop. When you returned from vacation, your house might look outwardly like the three-bedroom, two-bath colonial you departed two weeks before. But what you really got is a solar-powered, mobile home with an indoor arena. And that will affect both the possibilities and limits of the family manse.

Free agency is like those odd architectural interlopers. Quietly it has rewired the circuitry and remodeled the structures on which our social, cultural, and economic house is built. It's here -- deep in the realm of premises and first principles -- that free agency is having its greatest impact. It has already begun overturning a dozen central assumptions about contemporary American work and life

Pink examines 12 premises, including: The free agent economy makes workers less secure and Rampant individualism is fraying our social fabric.

In his superb classic How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World, Harry Browne defines freedom as living your life as you want to live it. He claims that you can enjoy a high degree of freedom right now. Among other "traps," he identifies:

Government Trap #1: The belief that governments perform socially useful functions that deserve your support.

Government Trap #2: The belief that you have a duty to obey laws.

Government Trap #3: The belief that the government can be counted upon to carry out a social reform you favor.

Government Trap #4: The fear that the government is so powerful that it can prevent you from being free.

For some additional "traps" that tend to reduce individual freedom, see HARRY BROWNE'S FREEDOM PRINCIPLES.

Harry Browne's "traps" are all premises at the level of the hidden plumbing of a house.

The following has been extracted from A Way to Be Free by Robert LeFevre:

How can one individual assist in maximizing human well being by advancing the cause of liberty? His first task is to learn his true nature.

1. Each of us has the ability to think and act as he pleases.

2. Each of us controls his own energy. We do it wisely or foolishly, but we do it individually. We may act on the advice or the command of others. Or we may decide not to. Our own energies remain under our individual command and control.

3. It follows that I cannot make you free; I can earn my own freedom by controlling myself instead of trying to control others.

4. What steps do I take when I wish to be free?

5. I free myself from dependency on others when that dependency is created or maintained by force. Since there is no way that I can survive without the help of others, I will always be dependent to some degree. But I can depend upon the voluntary support others provided when they willingly buy my goods or services. If I have to compel them to buy my goods or services -- either directly at the point of a gun, or indirectly through governmental avenues -- then I am acting in a way that is counter-productive and anti-freedom.

6. Having recognized this point, I break off all relations with government.

  • I will make no contribution to any political campaign or political party.

  • I will endorse no issue and no candidate.

  • I will not vote.

  • I will de-register and refuse to participate in government-sponsored proceedings of any sort.

  • I will not run for office, nor hold a political job even if asked.

  • I will patronize those persons and firms that have the least to do with government.

  • If a firm or individual is heavily subsidized by the government, I will have nothing to do with it; it is an arm of the State.

  • I will not ask for government help, guidance, advice, money, or emolument of any kind.

  • I will accept no government check for Social Security, welfare, injury, pension, or for any difficulty I may be in. I will solve my own problems.

  • I will set my own standards in such a way that I impose on no one.

  • I will injure no one for any reason.

  • I will be as generous and helpful to others as my ability makes possible.

  • I will live up to every contractual agreement I voluntarily enter into.

  • I will, therefore, take great care to only enter into those agreements that are worthy of fulfillment.

  • I will be true to the highest and best within me, committing no act of theft, dishonesty, or violence against any other human whatsoever.

Overcoming "Economic Correctness"

To some people, working at a job in a corporation is "economically correct." Please watch the "ON" Video. My purpose at this stage in asking you to watch the video is not to persuade you to join "ON," but to open your mind to such opportunities. If you're going to participate in this kind of economic activity, it may be better to start with someting else under the "MonsterPrelaunch Umbrella."

Personal Power

By "personal power" I refer to the ability to work; to take actions that achieve goals; to influence others.

Mark Joyner's Simpleology 101, which is available free, can be applied to learn to take more efficient, effective, and productive actions, i.e., increase personal power.

See also: How to Achieve and Increase Personal Power. At the end of this report there are a number of links to related reports.

And: Wake Up America! The Dynamics of Human Power.

It may be possible for some freedom activists to increase their personal power by a factor of 10. See: Software For Your Brain by Dr. Michael Hewitt-Gleeson.

For some people it may be very worthwhile to periodically "Reboot Your Brain and Improve Your Whole Life!"

Some people may benefit from taking steps that physically improve their brain functioning:

  • Eating foods and taking supplements that physically improve the brain.

  • Swimming underwater while holding your breath -- over time increases the size of your carotid arteries, thus providing more blood to your brain.

  • Playing ping-pong or table tennis.

  • Activate parts of your brain that have been dormant, e.g., by learning to draw or juggle, or other new skills.

  • Close your eyes and visualize your head as about one inch bigger all around, than its actual size. See this in your mind's eye for about 30 seconds straight. It sends your nervous system a signal to pump more oxygen to your brain. It's a bizarre "brain hack" reportedly measurable via CT scan. You usually experience a sense of heightened alertness on the first try. If it doesn't work immediately, try a few more times -- really see in your mind's eye your head as larger. (Acknowledgment to Win Wenger of Project Renaissance. Dr. Wenger also provides many methods to increase your intelligence.)

  • Brain Entrainment.

  • Learn and apply ProfitClicking's "Upgrade Your Brain," "Big Success Breakthrough," and "Killer Success Tricks."

Most people, including some freedom activists, have been brainwashed (or conditioned) to a point that they suffer to a greater or lesser degree from "learned helplessness," powerlessness, and obedience to "subjective social agreement.". They may accept as valid, and be constrained by, some of the Premises and Traps listed and linked to under "Free Agency.".

When a professional deprogrammer rescues a cult member from, say, Scientology, he or she applies some kind of "deprogramming methodology" to induce the cult member to "snap" out of his or her "Scientology mindset" and to snap back into "subjective social agreement." It may be possible to develop a deprogramming methodology to rescue and induce people to snap out of "subjective social agreement."

Below, under Howard Bloom's Lucifer Principle, you can read: "Our cultures... are our collective fantasies about the worlds we cannot see [emphasis added]. They are tapestries of memes." Most people, including some freedom activists, as they become "socialized" or "enculturated," come to agree that certain things are real, even if they cannot see them or perceive them otherwise. Their ability to use their senses to discern reality may become impaired, particularly in the areas of politics and religion.

Some psychologists use the term "socialization without reflection." Most people, including some freedom activists, are to various degrees trapped by "social/political conditioning." Maybe Brain Entrainment methods could be developed to help people, including freedom activists (where applicable), to deprogram themselves.

Brain Entrainment

Technologies and ideas similar or related to the following could be combined:

  • ProfitClicking! (a program under the "MPL Umbrella") has an "Upgrade Your Brain" page, which can be regarded as an "introduction to brain entrainment."

  • "Brain Entraiment" -- Transparent Corporation In particular, see Brain Sound Studio.

  • "Soundscape Software" --Vectormedia Software.

  • (All the software necessary to create "brain-entrainment audios" -- or "Mind Enhancement Audios" (MEAs) -- is available for free for Linux systems.)

  • "Afformations" (with an "o") -- open-ended and self-empowering questions -- see Use Afformations. Afformations are likely to work much better than "affirmations" -- often "lies you tell yourself!" (Using afformations would also tend to generally improve people's ability to ask questions.)

  • "Emotional Freedom Techniques" (EFT).

  • Part of our "Unique Selling Proposition" (USP) could be that with our MEAs you "empower your mind just by listening to energizing sounds that enhance your mind while you work, relax, or sleep!" Another part of our USP is that we utilize afformations which are much more powerful than affirmations.

  • We could provide the products in the form of MP3 files which people pay about $5 (or $19.95) for, and download, so we don't have to ship physical products. Payment could be via online payment systems, including c-gold.

  • We could include a brief message at the end of each MEA that mentions a website address the listener can visit for more information on our products. The website can include a brief form to capture visitors' names and email addresses. This way, we don't mind if people pirate our products, because this will result in wider distribution, bringing more visitors to our website. We can profit from these visitors in various ways -- like introducing them to ProfitClicking

  • Eventually there could be dozens of products. For a list of such products, see "Brain Entrainment Programs" See also "Insight & Focus Audio CDs."

From Barbarism to Civilization to Freeorder

Three Stages of Human Development:

  1. Barbarism;
  2. Civilization;
  3. Freeorder.

Barbarism

Although it may be a gross oversimplification, "barbarism" can be regarded as the "state of affairs" before humans became orgainzed into so-called "nation states" with so-called "governments." Among many "pre-civilized" people, there was a great deal of tribal warfare. The following table is from Steven Pinker's The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature. It depicts the percentage of male deaths resulting from tribal warfare for a number of primitive tribes.

(Click to enlarge image; then use your browser's "Back" button to return here.)

The bottom item on the table is for "US & Europe -- 20th Century."

A most important "organizing principle" of Barbarism is the "Pecking Order Bully System" (POBS). You can observe POBS in action by watching wild-animal TV programs about baboons, lions, etc.


Civilization

Pinker basically argues that concentrating the use of violence in a so-called "government" is a good idea because it reduced warfare deaths by 95%. He gives a number of 100 million killed during the 20th Century by "government warfare." If it hadn't been for civilization's so-called "nation states" and so-called "governments," the number of warfare deaths would have been 2 billion!

Steven Pinker:
A brief history of violence

According to R.J. Rummel, DEMOCIDE = MURDER BY GOVERNMENT: "Just to give perspective on this incredible murder by government [262,000,000 from 1900 to 1999], if all these bodies were laid head to toe, with the average height being 5', then they would circle the earth ten times. Also, this democide murdered 6 times more people than died in combat in all the foreign and internal wars of the century."

If you add Rummel's number for the people who died in combat to his 262 million number, you get over 300 million -- about three times Pinker's number.

"All murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets."
-- Voltaire

Humans in civilizations are generally called "citizens." I use the term "civilon" for "civilized human." Civilons actively engage in democide as described by Rummel. Or they passively support GPPs who perpetrate democide. Typically, civilons think "democracy is a good thing" -- no matter how many get killed.

(Daniel Jonah Goldhagen is the author of Hitler's Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust and Worse Than War: Genocide, Eliminationism and the Ongoing Assault on Humanity. Goldhagen points out that typically "political leaders do little or nothing to stop genocide." Is this similar to indicating that Al Capone and John Gotti did nothing to stop mafia murders?)

A most important "organizing principle" of civilization is the "Pecking Order Bully System" (POBS). You can observe POBS in action by watching wild-animal TV programs about baboons, lions, etc. -- and by observing civilons engaged in political elections. The 2008 election campaign between Obama and McCain was essentially the same as two (civilized) baboons beating their chests and shouting insults at each other to prove who was the "best bully."

At the end of the election, millions of Obama supporters hooted and hollered like (civilized) baboons because their favorite bully had been elected to the top of the "Pecking Order Bully System" (POBS), called the "US Federal Government." All these civilons were completely unaware that they were unconsciously acting out their primitive and deep-seated POBS programs.

Headline in the Arizona Republic of 12/1/08: "Citizens are new slaves to government masters."

Civilons are partial slaves. Their bullies tell them what they may or may not eat and drink. Their bullies force them to send their children to "concentration campuses for brainwashing" -- see Dumbed Down by "Education! Their GPP bullies force them to pay a percentage of their earnings to their GPPs. If this is 50%, then the civilons are essentially "50% slaves."

From the Preface to Foundations of Psychohistory by Lloyd DeMause: "The "psychogenic theory of history" which I set out in this book is simple to understand, though often difficult to believe. It can be summarized as the theory that history involves the acting-out by adults of group-fantasies which are based on motivations initially produced by the evolution of childhood."

It may be difficult for many (civilized) grown-ups to confront the proposition that much of what they regard as "rational life activities" could be better described as "adults acting-out group-fantasies rooted in maltreatment and abuse during childhood, as well as stemming from primitive animal programs in their brains!"

"...[R]eligions are best envisioned as a socially constructed haven for delusions that are not diagnosed as insanity due to majority acceptance. Those same beliefs would, however, receive the diagnosis of insanity if they were to appear outside of a religious framework." -- John F. Schumaker (The Corruption of Reality: A Unified Theory of Religion, Hypnosis, and Psychopathology)

Consider the proposition that 100% of "human religious belief and behavior" constitutes the pathological acting-out of group-fantasies!

Book: Wings of Illusion: The Origin, Nature and Future of Paranormal Belief by John F. Schumaker. Review on Amazon.com by Charles D. Hayes: "Understanding the nature of human belief systems is one of my principal preoccupations. I've read scores of books on this subject, and find John F. Schumaker to be in a league of his own in this discipline. He writes about beliefs with as much insight and clarity as Bryan Magee does with the complexities of philosophy. This book is timeless."

Book: The Corruption of Reality: A Unified Theory of Religion, Hypnosis, and Psychopathology by John F. Schumaker. Review on Amazon.com by Yahzi: "¶This book is the most important book of the entire 20th century. Like Freud, it will define the next 100 years of psychological thinking. Unlike Freud, it will last beyond that, becuase it is more than visionary, it is also grounded in hard science. ¶If you ever wanted to understand how educated, rational adults can believe in the stupidist things imaginable, this book explains it. ¶The only weak point of the book is the final chapter, where Schumaker suggests we create a false religion to safely guide people's evolutionarily inescapable stupidity. This is John's own corruption of reality: thinking that we can actually find a painless solution. But he presents it half-heartedly enough that I think even he understands it will never work. ¶The only solution is expecting people to grow up and act like adults. [emphasis added] Life isn't what you wanted it to be -- tough. Deal. ¶To put it another way: when you think about it long enough, this book explains 9/11, why we are in Iraq, and the current flap over Intelligent Design. That's a heck of an accomplishment for a book written many years ago."

Does the Schumaker quote on religion also apply to politics?: "Politics is best envisioned as a socially constructed haven for delusions that are not diagnosed as insanity due to majority acceptance. Those same beliefs would, however, receive the diagnosis of insanity if they were to appear outside of a political framework."

Consider the possibility that civilons tend to suffer from religious and/or political delusions that result in some unpleasant consequences... including over 300 million violent deaths during the 20th Century.

Consider the proposition that 100% of "human coercive political behavior" constitutes the pathological acting-out of group-fantasies!

Civilization should be regarded as a Dark Age of human history, as depicted in the book Dark Ages: The Case for a Science of Human Behavior by Lee McIntyre, from which I quote brief excerpts:

  • "Famine, largely for political reasons."
  • "Tyranny...largely a result of cruelty and indifference."
  • "Sexual assault."
  • "Child prostitution."
  • "Modern slavery."
  • "Congo's civil war."
  • "Systematic rape."
  • "Terrorism."
  • "Genocide in Rwanda."
  • "Sudan's civil war."
  • "6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust."
  • "Korean "comfort women"."
  • "Rape of Nanking."
  • "School and workplace shootings."
  • "Prison rape."
  • "Serialkillings."
  • "World Trade Cnter... demolished by terrorists."
  • "How can we be so cruel to one another? Why are such things allowed to happen?"
  • "Such atrocities continue largely because we tolerate them or because those of us who will not tolerate them do not know where to turn for answers. Can anything be done to stop such modern evils? What are the causal forces behind them?"
  • "Much of today's social scientific inquiry does not even seek to address the pressing social problems of our day."
  • "Aren't the evils we suffer at our own hands pretty much the same as those we have been inflicting on one another through the ages? Will we ever be able to make any progress? Should we simply give up?"
  • "Ignorance and indifference are the two biggest obstacles to changing our fate."
  • "We are currently ignorant of the true nature of the causal forces behind riots, deoressions, strikes, and wars."
  • "We do not understand the nature of science and how it can be applied to the study of human affairs."
  • "We are also afraid of what we may find out about ourselves if we look too closely."

Civilons (civilized people) can be described as "human livestock" farmed by GPPs and plutonomists -- "gangs of murderers, plunderers and thieves, surrounded by willing executioners, propagandists, sycophants, crooks, liars, clowns, charlatans, dupes and useful idiots."


Freeorder

One of the purposes of this page is to persuade individuals -- particularly freedom activists -- to become FreeWeavers who create Freeorder in general, and/or narrower specific Freeorders such as alternative currency/payment systems. Becoming a FreeWeaver may involve several steps. It's up to each prospective FreeWeaver to decide which steps he or she needs to take to become a FreeWeaver:

  1. Familiarize yourself with this page and the writings referenced and linked to;

  2. Apply the 80/20 Principle to Become more Effective and Efficient -- and to select the most important steps for you to take;

  3. Apply ProfitClicking's "Upgrade Your Brain" and the "Big Success Breakthrough";

  4. Further increase your level of personal success as suggested by the BGRSS;

  5. Raise your Mood Level and Improve your Health;

  6. Develop Online Moneymaking Skills (or any other moneymaking skills largely or completely free from the savage shackles of plutonomists and PGGs);

  7. Improve your thinking skills, starting with Project Learn to Think;

  8. Apply the Scientific Method -- see The Scientific Method can be used to solve any problem and The Scientific Method Today;

  9. Apply Freedom Engineering;

  10. Apply ProfitClicking's "Killer Success Tricks";

  11. Clear all religious nonsense, superstitions, and delusions from your own mind;

  12. Clear all political nonsense, superstitions, and delusions from your own mind (note that this may be 10-100 times as challenging as the previous item);

  13. Develop "practical freedom skills" -- how to live free in an unfree (civilized) world -- see Freedom Technology;

  14. Develop the kind of Champion Mindset that Jack Johnson had;

  15. Become More Conscious, following the example of Steve Biko;

  16. Team up with other FreeWeavers to implement FreeWeaver Projects (what these projects might be is open and for FreeWeavers to decide).

Pecking Order Bully System (POBS), Big-Finance & Big-Business

Consider the possibility that practically all humans have a powerful and deep-seated "Pecking Order Bully System" (POBS) program, inherited from our animal ancestors. If so, it would be automatic behavior for most people to create hierarchies and to position themselves within these hierarchies. Many people might feel lost if/when they're not part of a POBS hierarchy.

An aspect of the POBS program may be: "The word of the top bully is law." This may be so deep-seated and entrenched that it's very difficult, if at all possible, for most civilons to let go the absurd notion that "government makes laws."

Now, consider the possibility that many top plutonomists and GPPs are effectively positioned in POBS hierarchies where the top bully is someone in Big-Finance and/or Big-Business. If so, then some of the "Biggest Bullies" would be in Big-Finance and/or Big-Business, and some top GPPs would really be "Lesser Bullies" in their respective POBS hierarchies.

The "corporate media" can be regarded as an important "speaking mouth" of Big-Finance, Big-Business, and GPPs. Many journalists are situated in POBS hierarchies -- and they follow orders from the bullies above them.

Author and filmmaker John Pilger has documented a great deal about journalism and the world's "financial/corporate masters." He also writes some interesting things about Obama.

Gerry Spence Quotes

In Gerry Spence's book From Freedom to Slavery: The Rebirth of Tyranny in America, Chapter 5 is titled: "The New King -- The Tyranny of the Corporate Core," from which I quote below. I've replaced Spence's term "entities" with "pretendities," which I regard as a more apt term. (Many people have been brainwashed that certain "pretendities" -- like "Santa Claus who lives at the North Pole" -- exist as real entities. See Pretendities).

"In furtherance of our conclusion that Earthlings suffer bizarre aberrations of the mind, we report the following: There exists on earth a host of controlling pretendities called "corporations." However, try as we may, we have been unable to demonstrate that these pretendities are alive, that they breathe or feel or that they physically exist. These corporations appear to have no life as we understand life. They seem interested in but one thing, a lifeless paper symbol that measures the worth of all things and all Earthlings -- something Earthlings call "money."

Although corporations do not breathe, they are said to breathe money. Although they have no blood, their blood is said to be money. Although they have no brains, they are said to think money, and although they have no visible mouths, they speak only in terms of money. Although corporations do not live, their lives are devoted to the gathering of money, and although they are soulless, their souls are said to be composed totally of money. It remains an enigma to us that any but the insane could devote the labor of their entire lives to such non-beings. By means of the corporate-owned media, closely censored information is disseminated that portrays the corporate oligarchy as honest and just and also convinces the people it is proper for non-living pretendities to own or control the entire wealth of the earth while the living should be allowed only that which "trickles down." So convinced are the Earthlings of this religion called "free enterprise" that they willingly lay down their lives and the lives of their children to protect the oligarchy that continues to exploit them. ["Oligarchy" denotes a Pecking Order Bully System (POBS) with a small number of bullies at the top. "Plutocracy" denotes a POBS with rich bullies at the top.]

...the people are not aware that a New King reigns. They are vaguely cognizant, of course, that there are clusters of monstrous corporate pretendities that seem to control them, but they are no more sensitive to the ubiquitous nature of their enslavement than they are of the unrelenting pull of gravity. In fact, they seem to unconsciously fear their independence of these corporate pretendities, this New King of theirs, in the same way they might fear the loss of their subjugation to the gravitational pull of the earth -- that if gravity were extinguished they might suddenly find themselves flying free with no means by which to affix their feet to the soil."

Chapter 9 of From Freedom to Slavery: The Rebirth of Tyranny in America, Chapter 5 is titled: "Redesigning the Human Mind -- The Tyranny of the Media," from which the following is quoted:

  • "Ratings are what television is about, not freedom, not truth."

  • "Corporate America controls our major networks, magazines, and newspapers."

  • "The selection of news, its focus, its emphasis, its clarity, all deal with a more insidious censorship, one more difficult to detect, one hidden behind scanty details and unimpassioned words that flash quickly by."

  • "In the end, the media prints and broadcasts in accordance to its business requirements."

  • "It is, indeed, a quite incredible, yet uniformly accepted phenomenon, one akin to hiring the wolf to guard the farmer's flock of sheep, that the media, owned by our corporate masters, is the sole voice charged with guarding our individual freedom. But in a society dominated by corporations, the people's power to speak freely and effectively and be heard is the last freedom corporations whish to deliver to the people. The history of corporate resistance to freedom began with the Church itself, the first successful international corporation known to the world, and still today the world's largest. Pope Leo XIII said it plainly: "The liberty of thinking and publishing whatever one likes... that is the fountainhead of many evils.""

  • "Few social psychologists doubt that redesigning the human mind has become the long-term objective of corporate America." [See the "Psychological Control" videos.]

  • "We love our servitude. But why not? It often feels as good as freedom, and we can enjoy it without the risk that always accompanies the struggle for freedom."

  • "The corporate oligarchy understands that its power is safe only so long as the people believe they are free, and corporate America has the means -- the exclusive means -- by which to create and sell that fantasy."

  • "In the end, the most deadly trap of all is a brainwashed mind, for the brain, washed against itself, is powerless."

  • "The brainwashing has dehumanized us."

  • "Our minds have also been reformed to adopt a single virulent philosophy, a supposed wisdom -- that to prosper, Americans must support a dribble-down theory of the New King, that to survive, Americans must abdicate their power to the corporate conglomerate."

Howard Bloom's Lucifer Principle

The following is from the end of the Epilogue of The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition into the Forces of History by Howard Bloom:

"Superorganisms ["family," "tribe," "country," "nation," "state," "government," etc.], ideas ["killer memes"], and the pecking order -- the triad of human evil -- are not inventions "programmed" into us by Western society, consumerism, capitalism, television violence, blood-and-guts films, or rock and roll. They are built into our physiology. They have been with us since the dawn of the human race.

But there is hope that we may be able someday free ourselves of savagery. To our species, evolution has given something new -- the imagination. With that gift, we have dreamed of peace. Our task -- perhaps the only one that will save us -- is to turn what we have dreamed into reality. To fashion a world where violence ceases to be. If we can accomplish this goal, we may yet escape our fate as highly precocious offspring, as fitting inheritors of nature's highest gift and foulest curse, as the ultimate children of the Lucifer Principle."

The main idea of this section is that there may be certain "innate factors" in practically all humans that tend to make us "psychologically reversed at a social level." Howard Bloom has identified his "triad of human evil":

  1. Pecking order;

  2. Memes (certain "killer ideas");

  3. Superorganisms.

I speculate that practically all humans have in their brains certain "Primitive Animal Programs" (PAPs). One such PAP can be called the "Pecking Order Bully System" (POBS) program. If another "Big Bully" -- like Hitler -- were to appear, how many humans would obediently follow him and become his willing subjects? And would this be similar to a pack of baboons obediently following their "Big Bully Alpha Male" and becoming his willing subjects?

According to R.J. Rummel, DEMOCIDE = MURDER BY GOVERNMENT: "Just to give perspective on this incredible murder by government [262,000,000 from 1900 to 1999], if all these bodies were laid head to toe, with the average height being 5', then they would circle the earth ten times. Also, this democide murdered 6 times more people than died in combat in all the foreign and internal wars of the century."

If you add Rummel's number for the people who died in combat to his 262 million number, you get over 300 million. Psychological reversal on a grand scale?

"All murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets." -- Voltaire

In Dark Ages: The Case for a Science of Human Behavior, Lee McIntyre writes: "How can we be so cruel to one another? Why are such things allowed to happen? ...But the worst thing to realize is that such atrocities continue largely because we tolerate them or because those of us who will not tolerate them do not know where to turn for answers. Can anything be done to stop such modern evils? What are the causal forces behind them?"

For humanity to progress beyond our "Current Dark Age," it may be necessary to identify -- in addition to Bloom's "triad of human evil" -- more "Causal Forces." What if Bloom has only scratched the surface? The following books may identify more than Bloom has recognized:

  • The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature by Steven Pinker

  • The Psychology of War : Comprehending Its Mystique and Its Madness by Lawrence LeShan

  • The Most Dangerous Animal: Human Nature and the Origins of War by David Livingstone Smith

  • The Dragons of Eden: Speculations on the Evolution of Human Intelligence by Carl Sagan

  • The Triune Brain in Evolution: Role in Paleocerebral Functions by P.D. MacLean

  • Kluge: The Haphazard Evolution of the Human Mind by Gary Marcus

  • The Accidental Mind: How Brain Evolution Has Given Us Love, Memory, Dreams, and God by David J. Linden

  • Dinosaur Brains: Dealing with All Those Impossible People at Workby Albert J. Bernstein

  • Demonic Males: Apes and the Origins of Human Violence by Dale Peterson and Richard Wrangham

  • Man: The Fallen Ape by Branko Bokun

  • The Crazy Ape by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi

Maybe a "Network of Weavers of Freeorder" -- see The Explorers Foundation ("The Explorers Foundation exists to build a world fit for explorers and to fit ourselves to inhabit such a world.") -- to attempt to move humanity out of its "Current Dark Age" -- to take practical steps to "fashion a world where violence ceases to be" (Bloom).

The following are extracts from Bloom's The Lucifer Principle [with some comments added]:

  • ...Daniel Goleman, paraphrasing Nietzsche, says, "Madness... is the exception in individuals, but the rule in groups." [emphasis added] [This is a most important identification. Groups and superorganisms tend to be crazy... a little or a lot! See also Freud on Crowds.]

  • The ultimate evils are the mass murders that occur in revolutions and war, the large-scale savageries that arise when one agglomeration of humans tries to dominate another: the deeds of the social group.

  • ...[H]ow we, without the slightest sense of what the long-term results of our miniscule actions may be, contribute to the social organism's ponderous and sometimes earth shattering deeds. ...[H]ow, in our preoccupations with sex, our sometimes suicidal commitment to ideas, religions, and trivial details of cultural style, we become the unconscious creators of the social organism's exploits.

  • ...[H]umans are driven by many of the same instincts as our primate relatives.

  • Toward those beyond their tiny circle, they radiated only hatred. And they treated those they despised with remorseless brutality.

  • The reptile brain still sits inside our skull like the pit at the center of a peach. It is a vigorous participant in our mental affairs, pumping its primitive, instinctual orders to us at all hours of the day and night... The thinking human, no matter how exalted his sentiments, was still listening to the voices of a demanding reptile and a chattering ancient mammal. Both were speaking to him from the depths of his own skull.

  • Darwin saw competition taking place at several levels, including that which occurs between individuals and that which occurs between gropus. When discussing ants, he acknowledged that evolution could easily induce individuals to sacrifice their self-interest to that of the larger social unit. In his later writings, he proposed that a similar process occurs among human beings.

  • ...[P]redators almost invariably go for a herd animal that is acting differently from the rest.

  • Like the sponge cells and the slime mold amoebas, you and I are parts of a vast population whose pooled efforts move some larger creature on its path through life. Like the sponge cells, we cannot live in total separation from the human clump. We are components of a superorganism.
  • Remove the sponge cell from the sponge, prevent it from finding its way back to its brethern, and it dies.

  • There are innumerable causes for frustration in human life. But the inability to fulfill one's potential is way up there on the list... Frustration... breeds rage. [See The 4-Step Anger Cure.]

  • Leaders like Orville Faubus [governor of Arkansas from 1955 to 1967] and Fidel Castro have skillfully manipulated a few basic rules of human nature: that every tribe regards outsiders as fair game; that every society gives permission to hate; that each culture dresses the demon of its hatred in the garb of righteousness; and that the man who channels this hatred can rouse the suprorganism and lead it around by the nose.

  • Memes stretch their tendrils through the fabric of each human brain, driving us to coagulate in the cooperative masses of family, tribe, and nation. And memes -- working together in theories, worldviews, or cultures -- can make a superorganism very hungry.

  • If you can convince enough people of your worldview, no matter how wrong you are, you're right! The real significance of a meme is its power to pull together a superorganism.

  • Why are humans drawn to ideas like filings to a magnet? Why do memes have the power to create, elevate, pacify, and kill?

  • Control is extremely powerful stuf... Contol, in humans and rats, energizes the mind. A lack of control can cripple mental powers.

  • This belief in magic is one clue to our need for memes. Religious and scientific schemes -- clusters of guesswork that sometimes seem like a madman's dreams -- offer the feeling of control, an indispensable fuel for the physiological powerhouses of life.

  • ...[M]odern doctors sell the illusion of control. [See Beware Medical Scams -- Take Control of Your Health.]

  • The memes of magic, medicine, medieval Christianity, and modern fundamentalism offer an illusion that duplicates the health-giving force that saved a rat in a cage from harm. They hold out the illusion of power over the shocks and pains of life. [Does this also apply to the memes of politics?]

  • Our cultures... are our collective fantasies about the worlds we cannot see [emphasis added]. They are tapestries of memes.

  • Humans grab at ideas [memes] because ideas knit them together in groups of people who agree with them. They provide the comfort of companionship and mutual aid. That's one way memes seduce humans into their power.

  • The pecking order can determine whether you live or die.

  • The struggle for position in a pecking order is not restricted to individuals. It also hits social groups... -- the pecking order of superoganisms.

  • A web of memes justifies the subjugation of those on the bottom, upholds the power of those on top... It sanctifies the pecking order.

  • Never be complacent about barbarians.

  • Stripped of their moral disguises, the slogans of freedom, peace, and justice are often weapons that those attempting to achieve hierarchical superiority use to stuff the rest of us into the lower ranks of the pecking order.

The Psychological Control Videos

These videos focus on how Sigmund Freud's ideas have been used by politicians and business people to control, manipulate, and exploit the public (click the links (highlighted orange) to watch the videos):

  • The Century of the Self 1/4 (58 min) - Happiness Machines (Why Freud thought that people had to be controlled. Politicians needed to control people so they would be happy and docile. Freud's nephew Edward Bernays invented Public Relations and developed techniques to manipulate people to become consumers who wanted more than they needed. Both politicians and business people switched from appealing to reason, to apealing to irrational emotions.)
  • The Century of the self 2/4 (59 min) - The Engineering of Consent (Teaching both children and adults to conform to society. Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler's propaganda minister, applied Bernays' ideas to create the "Nazi propoganda machine." Exploiting fear became a widely used method by both politicians and business leaders.)
  • The Century of the Self 3/4 (59 min) - There is a Policeman Inside All Our Heads (He Must be Destroyed) (The self-actualization movement of the 70s -- in which about 80% of American adults got involved -- and how both politicians and business leaders developed ways to control, manipulate, and exploit the "newly self-actualized" people -- which became easier after they "self-actualized!" This video contains very important information on mass marketing.)
  • The Century of the self 4/4 (59 min) - Eight People Sipping Wine in Kettering (How to identify people's inner feelings and desires and promising that they can "get whatever they want." How politicians and business leaders have been using techniques along these lines to control, manipulate, and exploit people. Note how "The Secret" scam is based -- by accident or design -- on the strategies revealed in these videos!)

Freud on Crowds

In Carl Rogers on Personal Power, the author quotes from Sigmund Freud's Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego:

"A group is extraordinarily credulous and open to influence. It has no critical faculty... Anyone who wishes to produce an effect upon it needs no logical adjustment to his arguments; he must paint in the most forcible colors, he must exaggerate, and he must repeat the same thing again and again... It respects force and can only be slightly influenced by kindness, which it regards merely as a form of weakness... It wants to be ruled and oppressed, and to fear its masters... And finally, groups have never thirsted after truth. They demand illusions, and cannot do without them. They constantly give what is unreal precedence over what is real; they are almost as strongly influenced by what is untrue as by what is true. They have an evident tendency not to distinguish between the two... A group is an obedient herd, which could never live without a master. It has such a thirst for obedience that it submits instinctively to anyone who appoints himself as its master."

BECOME A 10X PERFORMING FREEDOM ACTIVIST!

Is freedom gaining ground? Or losing?

Who has the upper hand: freedom violators or freedom activists?

If freedom activists became ten times more effective, would we be able to turn things around?

Are freedom organizations growing fast enough and are they effective enough to make the impact necessary for freedom to win?

In your head you may have a "program" about how fast your achievements, your business, your organization, and/or your earnings can grow. "10% per year" is a typical "growth program." If you have such a program in your brain, it almost forces you you to think and act in ways that limit you to "10%-per-year" growth. It's a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy!

At what rate have freedom organizations been growing in terms of size and effectiveness? ... More than 10% per year?

What would happen if the principals, personnel, and members of freedom organizations -- and many individual freedom activists -- became ten times more effective?

Many freedom activists may have a "rate-of-growth" program in their brains that limits their thinking and actions, holding them back. This may also apply to you personally.

In 1984, Jack Welch who was then Chairman of General Electric Corporation, was introduced to the "ten-times-growth" (10X) program. Over a period of 18 months, starting in 1985 when GE was a $30 billion company, the "10X-growth" program was introduced to thousands of GE managers. By 1988, GE had grown into a $300 billion company, and as a result GE's shareholder value had grown ten times!

If you are not yet utilizing the "ten-times-growth" (10X) program, we're happy to tell you that FREE TRAINING (via email) is available.

We're launching the 10X Freedom Initiative. Initially it consists of a forum/community where freedom activists who are doing the 10X training, or have completed it, discuss the training and how they might apply it to become 10 times more effective as freedom activists. Join the forum/community by clicking here.

Out of the 10X Freedom Initiative, could develop a freedom organization or business that provides services such as:

Do you want the FREE "ten-times-growth" (10X) training?

The training consists of 35 interactive lessons. There are no fees of any kind. The success of the 10X approach is based on a few basic principles:

1. Your current results in life are a direct consequence of your general thinking skills, the way you think about yourself, what you do, and how you do it.

2. Your future results in life can be much better than they have been in the past.

3. Your current thinking skills and/or brain software can be upgraded.

4. The most powerful way to do this is through daily training.

5. You are able to find around 20 minutes a day to do this, most days.

6. Self-expression and feedback are very important aspects of learning and improvement and should not be underestimated or neglected.

More good news! FREE Sales X 10 training (called NewSell and consisting of 15 interactive lessons) is now also available.

"Delighted you have created this autoresponder system... I highly endorse Michael's information...I'm now doing his NewSell and SOT Instructors Training Courses...

"I don't remember how I found this site but I can tell you that it has changed my way of thinking about personal freedom. And I am now trying to 'live free in an unfree world.' Over the past six months I have studied the writings and recomended books that are a part of this web site. I have marked this page as my opening page on my browser and have forwarded articles from this site and from the discussion group associated with it, to spread the word to friends and relatives. If you are interested in finding what real freedoms entail, differing possibly from what you have been taught, this site will enable you to take off the blindfold of ignorance. Thank you Fredrick Mann for sharing this enlightenment with all who will take the time to look into its depth." -- Michael, 4/12/99
