A person’s thought processes are his/her own–right? We can think what we want to think. But often we change our ways of thinking, don’t we?
A set of circumstances that we experience can cause the change. But also, if something is drummed time after time into our heads through speech, through books, through media of all kinds, even though it may be against what we really believe, we may find that our way of thinking is changing, too.
This is called manipulation. And it is happening today. Especially the manipulation of women and young people—when a woman is told it is alright to think of her own child as her aggressor and she can do what she wants with it; and when young people are told that the world owes them something whether they work for it or not, because everybody should get a trophy.
This is Prima Donna behavior. This is lying behavior. This is undoing the America we know by those who want to “re-fashion” her, to take America from the Greatest Country to just another country. But we are not mediocre, and shouldn’t aspire to be. We are being played as pawns in a political, manipulative game, and we must join together to stop it.
Deepak Chopra, Alternative & Complementary Medicine, says that “Manipulation is getting what you want by ignoring or harming the desires of others. Manipulators use charm, persuasion, coaxing, trickery, and misdirection. The underlying idea is “I have to fool people to make them give me what I want.” (in other words, lie to them) “When they are really caught up in their ploys, manipulators even imagine that they are doing their victims a favor.”
Beware of the tricks being played upon us. Beware of the false language of political correctness that slaps down anyone who disagrees with the “New Speak.”
Have you read Nineteen Eighty-Four, by George Orwell? It was published long ago, in 1949, yet it is so prophetic. Newspeak is a fictional language in the novel that manipulates the totalitarian state, Oceania, as a tool to limit freedom of thought, as well as concepts that pose a threat to the regime–concepts like freedom, self-expression, individuality, and peace. Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct is classified as “thought crime”.
George Orwell explained that, “the purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view ….but to make all other modes of thought impossible.”
Does this sound familiar? Especially when it comes to our American freedoms?
We’re living in a dangerous world when not only our freedoms, but TRUTH itself, are being threatened. It is a world going astray. Are we doing something about it–personally? Or are we just plain ignoring it, absorbed in other things?
When we allow ourselves to be manipulated, we ignore error. So, error digs in and we get used to it. Then Newspeak, political correctness, and bad governing, reign. And genuine Truth is made subject to it.
In this extremely important election, let’s call our problems by name, not by New Speak. And when we vote, let’s remember our American values, beginning with Truth. And let’s make America Great Again.
