Priming Us for Depression, Cynicism & Passivity: How Governments Control the People

The feelings and states of mind in the headline above are people’s reactions to what’s going on in the world—but what’s going on in the world is being manipulated on a large scale. And one purpose of that manipulation is: producing those very feelings and states of mind—depression, cynicism, passivity. This is amplified by the increased frequency of staged events; shootings, economic downturns, phony scare-tactic epidemics, absurd reversals of common-sense justice, and so on. Psychological operations (psyops) are planned with the purpose of demoralizing populations. That’s the frequent goal. It’s intentional.

Even Storm Clouds Are Beautiful

Even Storm Clouds Are Beautiful

That heavy feeling creeps in, permeates your mind/body, and makes you want to crawl back under the covers…or reach for a drink, or a smoke, or maybe a box of chocolate chip cookies. Maybe even all three.

Most of us are downright terrified of this feeling. It’s so damn uncomfortable. It might be depression, anxiety, fear or anger.
