If we were to pinpoint the one pervasive emotion in society today, it would be fear.
People all around you are fearful of almost everything. They fear the police.
They fear the IRS, ATF, TSA and all the other “alphabet police”.
They fear losing their job.
They fear losing their house. They fear their city or town government. And they fear the mother of them all – fear of continuing life without enough money to maintain their current lifestyle (or at least the one they remember from a decade ago). Most people rationalize these fears as normal because “everyone has them”.
We are trained from a very early age to act out of fear. We fear our teachers wrath, so we do our homework. We fear clergymen, for they decide if we go to heaven or hell, so we say all the right prayers. We fear older children who may bully us so we cross the street to avoid them.
Later on in life we fear the cost and hassle of a ticket, so we fasten our seat belts. We fear losing our house so we work in a job that means nothing, offers us no personal satisfaction other than just enough money to keep us trying to reach the carrot on the stick.
Try this experiment . . .
List all your obligations for the next 30 days – work, social and financial – then place a star beside those that cause you any concern (fear). Most people who do this discover there are multiple things in their immediate lives that cause them fear.
Today, in 2012, there is plenty outside of our daily lives to fear: Will the world end on December 21st? Will WWIII start in Iran? Will the economy collapse? Will the poles shift position? Will the sun (or another country) send an EMP that knocks out the electrical grid? Will martial law be implemented? Have we foolishly given the President of the United States so much power that he can become a dictator? Will food supplies run out? Will the weather continue to be abnormal? Will chemtrails ultimately poison us? Will GMO crops take over all others?
Are you scared yet?
Many of these fears are constantly and purposely reinforced by what I like to call “the pop culture”. Television is the greatest purveyor of fear, usually by embedding feelings of inadequacy. I recently read that the average American watches 34 hours and 39 minutes of TV per week. That’s a good deal more than it would take to participate in a college course. Like the college course, you are being instructed and trained by the TV.
Edward Bernays coined the term “television programming” and his rationale was crystal clear – television was designed to program people into becoming happy consumers. These happy consumers are being motivated to purchase garbage by an external force that exploits feelings of inadequacy. Every time we watch a commercial that shows the handsome man with a real “babe” sitting next to him in his shiny new car, in our minds we feel inadequate for not having a new car, too. These feelings of inadequacy open the door to fear, especially when we are given nothing of real value to replace those desires.
Fear is the toolbox of “the powers that be” (TPTB). Fear is the lowest vibration humans can be affected by or give off. It impedes our path to higher (vibratory) levels of consciousness and ascension as human beings. People who live in a constant state of fear are very manipulable. TPTB understand that if they can make people fearful, they can make them do anything.
It is fear – manipulated fear – that makes us compliantly stand in line to be groped before embarking on a plane, regardless of the fact that no terrorist plot has ever been discovered nor stopped by such action! Although some who suffer through the TSA’s groping express anger, the real motivation for compliance is fear.
