A Population Control Primer
Post from February 24, 2015 (↻ June 8, 2021), filed under Everything Else.
I wrote this after reading way too many conspiracy-related books, and I keep it up only to show how one can become a bit too concerned and riled up. Nothing in here, then, shall truly suggest that anyone controls or is controlled in an effective fashion. That’s at least nothing I could (or would want to) detect.
This post is about ruling people. For the control of population growth, see e.g. Wikipedia.
An incomplete, roughly sorted sketch of actions, methods, and developments that don’t serve us. We have a lot of work to do.
None are more enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
—Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
- Break down the family institution.
- Break down religion and religious groups.
- Keep alive race segregation (as with racial profiling).
- Found interest groups that appear to support but instead weaken and fail the opposition.
- Encourage competition (instead of cooperation).
- Elevate individuality.
- Overemphasize science (as science has inherent disuniting effects).
- Push entertainment and spectacle sports.
- Push hedonism (primarily through pornography and an ideal of promiscuity).
- Promote “culture.”
- Promote instant gratification.
- Encourage people to focus only on themselves.
- Promote “open-mindedness.”
- Emphasize importance of and entitlement to opinions.
- Spread as many different views as possible.
- Use misleading terms and expressions (euphemisms, abbreviations, foreign language, &c.).
- Make politics appear as a matter of compromise than a matter of principles and ideals.
- Give impression of democracy.
- Give impression of choice.
- Give impression of freedom.
- Take control of media.
- Take control of education.
- Reward intelligentsia with lucrative business and society functions (to make oblivious and complacent).
- Invent and exaggerate dangers, especially disease, drugs, terrorism, and child pornography, as well as national and international threats.
- Stage attacks and conflicts.
- Legalize interest, and compound interest.
- Make it impossible to live in dignity without legal tender.
- Spread the concept of sin.
- Foster a culture of victimhood.
- Maintain ideas of guilt and shame.
- Establish and tolerate unnecessarily restrictive work conditions (rights, wages, hours).
- Artificially increase prices, and keep them high.
- Sit on political issues.
- Issue nonsensical and unjust court verdicts.
- Make it expensive and difficult to attain justice.
- Constantly report on crime, injustice, obstacles, setbacks, failures without any obligation to be truthful, provide data for comparison, or be accountable.
- Make it a risk for anyone to stand up for values and convictions.
- Privatize money supply and financial sector.
- Optimize drug policy for profit (but give impression of acting in public interest).
- Monitor all interaction and communication (under the guise of threats to the public).
- Permanently tag people (under the guise of health).
- Increase state reach into private sphere.
- Legalize more drugs and make them appear acceptable.
- Be behind both sides of every conflict (no suspicion of involvement).
- Prohibit forming of unions and similar forms of organization.
- Prohibit public gatherings.
- Militarize police.
- Militarize public life.
- Crack down violently on any form of dissent.
Willfully start military conflicts and don’t prevent (but rather provoke) natural disasters. Use confusion and despair to cut more rights, take over more control, and expand powers. Move towards centralized governance. Let the uneducated, powerless, controlled main population think they’re educated, powerful, and in control.
