Zeitgeist movie ends with:
“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.” ― Sri Chinmoy Ghose
““The world is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. The ride goes up and down, around and around, it has thrills and chills, and it’s very brightly colored, and it’s very loud, and it’s fun for a while. Many people have been on the ride a long time, and they begin to wonder, “Hey, is this real, or is this just a ride?” And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and say, “Hey, don’t worry; don’t be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.” And we … kill those people. “Shut him up! I’ve got a lot invested in this ride, shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry, look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real.” It’s just a ride. But we always kill the good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok … But it doesn’t matter, because it’s just a ride. And we can change it any time we want. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. Just a simple choice, right now, between fear and love.” ― Bill Hicks
This movie “Human Resources Social Engineering In The 20th Century” starts with research of J.B Waston founder of behaviorism, stating: fear, not love, is the driving force in our society. In some ways explains why the Zeitgeist narrative described in that movie works. Because fear is what guides humanity, our self preservation mechanism is used to control us. Many people watched Zeitgeist but I don’t think many people watched this movie. It’s very controversial. You don’t have to agree with its conclusions but facts described are very informative. For me, for example, the part about co-op organization is just some fantasy land. I don’t want people to believe my conclusions or believe conclusions of this movie or zeitgeist. I just want people to have information to make their own conclusions.
For some people this movie can be a little too much like a conspiracy theory. Again like Chomsky said: “Either you repeat the same conventional doctrines that everybody else is saying,… (or) else you say something which in fact is true, and it will sound like it’s from Neptune.” Noam Chomsky, Propaganda and the Public Mind.
So here you have a lecture on a similar subject from “University of California Television (UCTV)” on youtube titled:”Dark Persuasion – The History of Brainwashing from Pavlov to Social Media”. Less accurate and less in depth. Distinction between those two documentaries also provides excellent material to see the influence of narrative and what I wrote before about it, so the fact is that everyone lies.
Because if you watch both of them you will see that the independent documentary “Human Resources Social Engineering In The 20th Century” concentrates on what the US was doing since they were leading in that science. Through research of J.B. Waston who like Edward Bernays, also worked in advertising and research for Skinner. But the “University of California Television (UCTV)” is a US institution so can’t admit that they are the evil ones – so most of the lecture is about Ivan Pavlov, big bad Russian, because we can’t admit the West is the evil ones even in academic science. Same lie about Korea in an independent documentary a man says that research in brainwashing started before the Korean conflict. But in American institutions we need to perpetuate the narrative so that we can’t admit we are the bad guys so we tell an official lie that it was in response to what North Korea was doing to US shoot down pilots. That’s why I say everyone lies, BRICS for example, Russia has its own narrative, its own lies. If you watch Russian academia documentaries they would minimize or even omit Ivan Pavlov’s wrong doings while emphasizing Watsons and Skinners. Everyone lies that they are great when in reality everyone is greedy partially because they are fearful.
They use people’s fear and hedonism to make us ignorant. People either are fearful and scared so they believe what they are told or they are hedonists and so they just periuse pleasure and happiness and so they don’t care. Anything as long as they don’t think, don’t ask questions.
“So in the twentieth century, there’s a major current of American thought―in fact, it’s probably the dominant current among people who think about these things [political scientists, journalists, public relations experts and so on]―which says that precisely because the state has lost the power to coerce, elites need to have more effective propaganda to control the public mind. That was Walter Lippmann’s point of view, for example, to mention probably the dean of American journalists―he referred to the population as a “bewildered herd”: we have to protect ourselves from “the rage and trampling of the bewildered herd.” And the way you do it, Lippmann said, is by what he called the “manufacture of consent”―if you don’t do it by force, you have to do it by the calculated “manufacture of consent.”― Noam Chomsky, Understanding Power: The Indispensable Chomsky

“The entire U.S ruling class ruling elite comes to see terrorism as the preferred means indeed the only means to provide social cohesion, to provide an enemy image for the society, to keep it together. According to neocon theory from Carl Schmidt you have to have an enemy image in order to have a society… This is a very dangerous thing because now it means that the entire social order, the political parties, intellectual life politics in general are all based on a monstrous myth.” -Webster Tarpley (Historian) Zeitgeist movie
After winning the cold war and fall of the Soviet Union, neocons needed an “enemy image”. So we got “Clash of Civilizations” as talk in the previous video of Chomsky I posted. It was cemented with the starting of war against Terrorism after 9/11 and creation of patriot act and guantanamo. War against terrorism was in reality war against you against people’s freedom.
They created terrorists. Then we had Trump and Russia gate, then we got sickness, then we got Ukraine and evil Putin. Fear and division is what allows control. That was their goal, divide and conquer.
“…we are living in the most fearmongering time in human history. And the main reason for this is that there’s a lot of power and money available to individuals and organizations who can perpetuate these fears.”
Barry Glassner, Quoted in “Why We’re Living in the Age of Fear”
“During the Cold War and beyond television programming would increasingly resemble an experiment in fear-based conditioning applied on a global scale. The thesis of John B Waston that fear not love is the guiding force in human society would no longer be confined to the realm of theory. It would become our reality.”
