“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be.” -Kurt Vonnegut
Almost everyone wants to be strong and independent, free from external manipulation and indoctrination. Part of the process of shielding ourselves from manipulation, is to understand a number of basic distinctions — “distinctions that make a difference.”
What is the Difference Between . . .
Education and Indoctrination?
Education involves the seeking of facts, and learning about what is the truth, and what is not. Indoctrination is aimed at influencing people to believe in facts, without being able to back up these newfound facts with anything but opinion…
Education points out that there are different solutions, often to the same problem. Indoctrination poses the belief that there is only one solution to a problem. __ Education and Indoctrination
Philosophy and Ideology?
Philosophy refers to looking at life in a pragmatic manner and attempting to understand why life is as it is and the principles governing behind it… Ideology refers to a set of beliefs, doctrines that back a certain social institution or a particular organization.
… ideology is aimed at changing the world whereas philosophy is aimed at seeking the truth. __ Philosophy and Ideology
Facts and Opinions?
Facts are statements that are based on truth. These statements are verified and usually under the process of being researched… Opinions, on the other hand, are statements that can either be true or not.__ Facts and Opinions
Objective and Subjective?
Objective is a statement that is completely unbiased. It is not touched by the speaker’s previous experiences or tastes. It is verifiable by looking up facts or performing mathematical calculations.
Subjective is a statement that has been colored by the character of the speaker or writer. It often has a basis in reality, but reflects the perspective through with the speaker views reality. It cannot be verified using concrete facts and figures. __ Objective and Subjective
Knowledge and Skill?
Knowledge refers to learning concepts, principles and information regarding a particular subject(s) by a person through books, media, encyclopedias, academic institutions and other sources. Skill refers to the ability of using that information and applying it in a context. In other words, knowledge refers to theory and skill refers to successfully applying that theory in practice and getting expected results.__ Knowledge and Skill
Education and Experience?
The source of knowledge for education is in printed materials, whereas, with experience, the knowledge is gained either through involvement or exposure.
A person with great experience is called an expert, while a person with great education, is not always immediately regarded as an expert in his or her field. __ Education and Experience
Knowledge and Belief?
There are three kinds of belief – vague, well-supported, and beyond a reasonable doubt… So what is knowledge? “Knowledge” is defined as “justified, true belief.” …
According to Plato’s Theory of Knowledge, there will be knowledge as long as there is a justifiable truth and belief. We can say that Plato’s Theory of Knowledge and the Belief-Knowledge Continuum coincide with one another. Truth is the objective requirement for knowledge. However, if you just believe that something is true, it does not always make what you believe true. __ Belief and Knowledge
Fact and Truth?
Fact is basically something that exists, or is present in reality. Hence, these are things that can be seen visually, and these are the things that can actually be verified. Facts are objective matters rather than subjective ones…
… a truth is something that is not universal, it is more subjective, and depends on the current situation.
_Fact and Truth
All of the above definitions are subject to debate. The distinction between “fact” and “truth,” for example is not always so clear cut in the real world.

These ideas are all basic to Dangerous Child training. They are best learned early. But independent thinking can be learned at almost any stage, if it is done in earnest. It is never too late to have a Dangerous Childhood.
More: Below is the key to the graphic at the top of the page.
1) Obfuscation: Just basic confusion of one thing for another- a smoke and mirrors game.
2) World View Poisoning: Conditioning the way people view human nature and their own self-value.
3) Conditioning of Primal Fear: The exploitation of primal fears.
4) Divide and Conquer Strategy: Highlight any perceived differences between people and then exploit those differences to create infighting so they are easier to control and conquer.
5) Indoctrination of Education System: A left brain form of Nazis called it mastery learning. grade school, HS and university. Trivium and quadrivium education could counteract this.
6) Controlled Opposition: Basic dialectics – dialectical mechanics or Hegelianism Creating conflict that you already have an outcome management system for. Create the conflict and wait for a type of reaction to the conflict (usually chaotic that demands a resolution) and then you step in and resolve it. Artificial conflict resolution.
7) Monetary System of Control: Debt based fiat currency fractional reserve banking a system of illusion that we call money yet people believe in it like its a religion or god. People seem to be the most powerless to come out of. It exists purely in the mind.
8) Control of Mass Media: If you can control the info that people get to see hear and read you control their perception of reality. If you limit the scope of what they can take into their minds and awareness you limit their possibilities of solutions. Human perception management.
9) Food and Medicine: attack on the physical aspects of the body relates to how our brain development goes. You affect thought and consciousness you are what you eat. Use techniques that are damaging to consciousness through the modern medical system
10) Illusion of Time: Very important for people to grasp. Play on people’s seeming inability to live in true present moment awareness– getting people to live in regret over the past or anxiety over the future. Its a fear based technique. Takes us out of true present awareness. Being fully present now to take on what is happening now. If our consciousness can be manipulated into always looking into what has happened. It takes away effectiveness of dealing with the current situation.
11) The DHR Factor: Denial, Hassle, Ridicule: What other people perceive about you. Denial, hassle ridicule factor. Things are fine the way they are I don’t want to rock the boat because I may have to deal with hassle of other people. The hassle free zone is– I don’t want all the uncomfortable aspects of life that come with standing up for truth. These are all fear based. Heightening those three forms of mental instability. Trap of inactivity and not really doing anything to make things better.
12) Religion: We need to understand these last three the best. Religion is a form of binding. To tie back Re-Ligare tying back. Forms of modern religion are mind control based on astro-theology. Giving people an exoteric version of something that was once esoteric or internal. Government is the binding on the left brain… religion is the binding of the right brain.
13) Use of Subversive Symbolism: Based on ancient sacred symbolism. Based on symbols that have been with us from antiquity. Solar symbolism, life force symbols, energy, blood, or anything we need for existence and life. They use these in modern institutions— banks, police, media, stores. We’re drenched in it. Basic symbols have a powerful psychic influence. They can speak to us without words. A wordless form of communication. Connects to occultism.
14) Problem-Reaction-Solution (Chaos Sorcery): A mass demonstration or a public display of the dark aspects of the Hegelian dialectic. Hegelian dialectic can be used in a positive or negative sense. Chaos sorcery or false flag terrorism. This is ritual magic being used openly in the light of day. You are creating a chaotic situation in the light of day and you know it will elicit an extreme reaction of fear and chaos that demands order be brought as soon as possible. You are manipulating the fear in the limbic system– people are not in a state that they can reason. They are demanding solutions purely out of emotions. They are in a reactive mode of consciousness. They want the outcome of the game known before the game is played. Interject chaos, you know the reaction its going to cause and you know. A leap in consciousness will subvert this technique. This technique works over and over again. Humanity won’t wake up. 9-11 was chaos sorcery. __ Undetectable Mind Control
This is not an endorsement of everything in the website above, which contains many quasi-conspiratorial ideas. But always remember: “Just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you.” 😉
