Thought Virus: Snowden was right to expose NSA, but should be punished!Submitted by Asclepius on Sat, 06/15/2013 - 13:26
In this rant below, Jon Rappoport identifies the source of this insane thought virus as the Surveillance State itself...
"...about Ed Snowden. Yes, it was all right that he exposed NSA but…he should have stayed in America and faced the music.
What?!? A mind-boggling assessment to say the least. However, it’s really based on a perception, true or false, that Snowden is currently running around free, uncontrolled.
And that he has no right to be, because nobody does, outside the range and reach of government.
Freedom is the wild card. “Order must take its place.” That’s what the Surveillance State is all about.
“We’ve got these biological machines called humans running around out there and it’s crazy. They’re possibly in possession of something called FREEDOM which is too horrible to contemplate, because I, an obsessive problem solver, long ago sacrificed MY OWN FREEDOM on the altar of…I’ve forgotten. Anyway, wait a minute, these biological machines don’t really have freedom, they’re running on faulty programs….YES, THAT’S IT, and the programs have to be changed, ONCE AND FOR ALL!! Yes, that feels better. There is no such thing as freedom.”
“Yes, that’s it. No one is free, it’s all a delusion. There are only good and bad programs, and these billions of human machines are running on bad programs…so we need one central program, one CENTRAL PROGRAM for everybody, and then order will prevail and coordination will prevail, and peace will prevail.”
“In order to develop such a program, we need Total Surveillance. We need to observe all these biological machines in their crazy lives, 24/7, wherever they go, whatever they do….and then we can collate that information and analyze it and come up with a solution. Algorithms. A better program. An all-encompassing program. Then we can insert it into the behavior of every human.”
The Surveillance State is based on a psychology and a philosophy that has this view of life and human beings.
That’s what we’re dealing with. Nothing less.
Mass mind control. Operant conditioning. Coercion.
In Orwell’s 1984, that’s what “Big Brother is watching you” was all about. The Surveillance State wasn’t merely curious. It wasn’t merely trying to stamp out terrorists. It was part and parcel of control."
