A Population Control Primer

Post from February 24, 2015 (↻ August 23, 2017), filed under .

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.


  1. Divide
  2. Distract
  3. Confuse
  4. Manipulate
  5. Exploit
  6. Demotivate
  7. Control
  8. Dominate









Willfully start military conflicts and don’t prevent, if not 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.
