The Freud-Bernays Effect: Rockefeller and Bernays were the social engineers of America.

Sigmund Freud is the Austrian neurologist who came up with "Psychoanalysis." In the late 1800's and into the early 1900's, he developed theories about the unconscious mind and the mechanism of repression. Repression is defined as "the psychological attempt by an individual to repel one's own desires and impulses towards pleasurable instincts by excluding the desire from one's consciousness and holding or subduing it in the unconscious." Freud thought humans were irrational and out-out-control, naturally. Freud believed that all human beings are driven by primitive, animal instincts and the job of society was to repress and control these claimed dangerous unconscious forces. Freud's daughter Anna, continued her father's pursuit of explaining to the mass, that our minds have been compromised and we are not to trust these irrational and immoral thoughts. Freud was depressed, had a cocaine addiction for awhile during the creation of most of his theories, smoked cigarettes and cigars, and fantasized about his mother?! So he clearly was a victim of his culture/environment while implementing key ideas of psychology. In the 1900's mainstream society bought into the idea of "dangerous and vulnerable" unconscious mind and waited for the guiding hand to steer them in the right direction......
Then, in 1919 Edward Bernays began his unfortunate legacy of Public Relations. Bernays was a Jewish, Austrian-American and was the father of PR and Propaganda. He worked with President Woodrow Wilson and started his War Propaganda campaigns early in his career. He then began to strategically implement his uncle's psychoanalysis sentiments as he felt manipulation was necessary in society, which he regarded as irrational and dangerous as a result of a 'herd instinct.' Adam Curtis's award-winning 2002 documentary from BBC, The Century of the Self, pinpoints Bernays as the originator of modern public relations, and Bernays was named one of the 100 most influential Americans of the 20th century by Life magazine. At one point in history, suppliers of goods were worried they were manufacturing too many things for people to buy. The mentality towards consumerism and the economy in the early 1900's was that of necessity, and not wants and desires. Bernays worked rigorously to establish a new way consumerism which revolved around desires and self-image. He manipulated Freud's psychoanalytical theory and turned it into the engine for people to express a new form of "happiness."
This quote kind of wraps it all up for Bernays:
"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. ...We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. ...In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons...who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind." -From Edward Bernay's book, Propaganda

In my opinion it is quite obvious why this culture in decline is occurring. This foundation of a consumer-based society where the products you buy express who you are as an individual is the death of us all. Advertising, PR, Consumerism and the Corporatocracy are the only reason the monetary system has not collapsed yet. We need these institutions to stop manipulating the people into a make-believe fantasy life that caters to ONLY the elitists, politicians and the like. This viscous, self-predicated approach to life is literally fueling competition, pollution, unemployment, profit, power and A KID EXECUTING 20 6 YEAR OLDS AND HIS OWN MOTHER.
The other day I was telling some friends and family about how our media and policy-makers never focus on the real issue at heart regarding these school shootings. I felt that all the Government would do about this Connecticut tragedy is add more metal detectors in schools and beef up the police presence. And then BOOM! look what I stumbled across when  flipping through the channels:

More military presence, at schools. Perfect. We really need to wake up. It's way past due to transition to a smarter way of life. The degenerate psychopaths in charge don't want us to escape this constraint and thrive, but our evolution demands freedom.

Solution: "Time For Change"

Meet the new revolutionaries of the Do-It-Yourself cultures in Barcelona, Tallin and Jakarta. They are modern day heroes. They do not wait for political parties or institutions to change their world; they simply do it themselves, by creating new local currencies, by working in social networks or by simply robbing the banks and redistributing their money.

Solution: O.U.R. Ecovillage

Brandy Gallagher & Company are living in a resource-based economy (RBE) in Shawnigan Lake, B.C. This social alteration is a 45 minute drive from Victoria Canada, a destination I am considering moving to. Imagine if we could live like this as a whole? Life would offer so much more happiness and connectivity.

"O.U.R. Ecovillage is a 25 acre, permaculture based, working farm and educational demonstration site for natural building, organic and permaculture food production and sustainable living."


Via my pops. Thanks for this one dad, great quote!

No surprise on this one...

@factsandtrivia: Even though the U.S. government didn't grant Native Americans citizenship until 1924, nearly 13,000 of them served in WWI (1914-1918).

The Message

Solution: Open Source - Build it yourself!

The Big 3: Institutions to steer clear from. These 3 main cancerous establishments are preventing mankind to flourish and evolove. They are corrupt, outdated and are the culprit for most of the problems that currenlty exist.

Did we ever sign an oath when we were born that inducts us into this oppressive culture/society? No. We created these problems, we can end them and create innovative new ways of living life. We have the resources, knowledge and technology to do so, but our old ways are reigning supreme. Think about it....

The War on Kids - The War on Kids: The Definitive Documentary on the Failure of the Public Education System
A perfect example of 1 of our main institutions failing; School. It prevents children from expanding their minds and prohibits them to think outside the box. Furthermore, this documentary explains how schools are meant to control kids with an inferior and threatening manor. Most teachers don't have the tools to effectively teach children fundamental things, and if they do try and enlighten students, they get reprimanded as they want all students to be numb to this horrific society. The goal of school is to keep kids naive to real issues and train them how to take orders and succumb to mainstream peasants work. Enough is enough already.

Projects Peter Joseph is working on.....

Solutions for a sustainable life:
The Global Redesign Institute, coming soon

Paul Bloom: The Psychology of Everything

Let the person preventing the evolution of mankind tell you how....

The Empathic Civilisation

Never has the world seemed so completely united-in the form of communication, commerce, and culture-and so savagely torn apart-in the form of war, financial meltdown, global warming, and even the migration of diseases.
No matter how much we put our minds to the task of meeting the challenges of a rapidly globalizing world, the human race seems to continually come up short, unable to muster the collective mental resources to truly “think globally and act locally.” In his most ambitious book to date, bestselling social critic Jeremy Rifkin shows that this disconnect between our vision for the world and our ability to realize that vision lies in the current state of human consciousness. The very way our brains are structured disposes us to a way of feeling, thinking, and acting in the world that is no longer entirely relevant to the new environments we have created for ourselves.
The human-made environment is rapidly morphing into a global space, yet our existing modes of consciousness are structured for earlier eras of history, which are just as quickly fading away. Humanity, Rifkin argues, finds itself on the cusp of its greatest experiment to date: refashioning human consciousness so that human beings can mutually live and flourish in the new globalizing society…
As the forces of globalization accelerate, deepen, and become ever more complex, the older faith-based and rational forms of consciousness are likely to become stressed, and even dangerous, as they attempt to navigate a world increasingly beyond their reach and control. Indeed, the emergence of this empathetic consciousness has implications for the future that will likely be as profound and far-reaching as when Enlightenment philosophers upended faith-based consciousness with the canon of reason.

Peter Joseph and Joe Rogan

Have a convo with Jacque for an hour, trust me....

Futurist and Venus Project inventor, Jacque Fresco talking to Larry King

This was 38 years ago?!?!   We still have the exact same problems today with pollution, the monetary system and all institutions, and no significant resource-based culture has emerged. No major "democratic" referendums passed or new innovative laws or regulations being practiced ?! We continue to be herded like sheep by the top 1%, bankers and elitists?  Absolutely enraging.

Dirty 30: Zeitgeist, Peter Joseph and my new Life

At age 30, my sentiments on living a healthy, logical, sustainable life have been confirmed by being enlightened by this brilliant documentary series. I've always asked my dad, "Why do we need money." We don't. $ is debt intended for elitists and bankers to profit and to control corrupt policies. I feel like we have known this for years......I was forced to go to institutions like church, school and pointless jobs so the invisible "freedom hand" could guide me in the "right" direction. I now am realizing that this plot to control my entire life/decisions/values was merely a tactic to maintain ignorance and sheep-like communal practices in this pathetic corporatocracy that is so "normal?"  Fuck That. Im done. I have always believed that "everything is mental," which it is. We have known these facts for years, but nothing changes. My calling has been declared!

Stay informed @
