Re: How did so many people get scammed by a real (weak) virus and a fake pandemic?
Any student of Gurdjieff knows the answer to this question.
John Shirley (Gurdjieff: An Introduction to His Life and Ideas, 2004) wrote …
“Ouspensky’s book In Search of the Miraculous cites Gurdjieff in a Russian café, pointing at the crowd in the street and saying, ‘Look, all those people you see are simply machines, nothing more.’
“Hearing this, Ouspensky was at first shocked. But we’re not entirely machines, he protested. Art, poetry, philosophy — in this people are more than mechanical, surely.
“No, said Gurdjieff emphatically. All that is mechanicality too. And so are the ‘great deeds’ of history. ‘Man is a machine. All his deeds, action, words, thoughts, feelings, convictions, opinions, and habits are the results of external influences, external impressions. Out of himself a man cannot produce a single thought, a single action.'”
Edward Bernays (The Father of Public Relations) knew how easy it was to indoctrinate the masses (that’s you and me).
“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.”
What did Morpheus tell Neo?
“The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”
Those who think they took the Red Pill DIDN’T.
Daydreams of swallowing the Red Pill are one of the Blue Pill’s grandest illusions.
