Secrets of the Rulers

Secrets of the Rulers
The rulers are those who set the rules for the masses to adopt. The rulers also arrange for the enforcing of the rules (by influencing their subjects to limit their behaviors to operate within the limits of the rules). The classic figure of power is the father figure, which can be taken to extremes as the heavenly father or Godfather, who may be called the father of fathers, the ruler of rulers, or the king of the kings. The holy father is a typical title for the ruling high priests (such as Father Murphy or Father MacDonald, etc), and the ruling father figure is not alone in ruling. There can be the great mother and also the elder brothers (deacons, etc).
These saintly intermediaries (below the Almighty Overlord) may take the role of the ally of the subjects (the good cop as distinct from the bad cop of the tyrannical and even brutal Godfather). These good cops gently train or program the subjects, though keeping available the psychological tool of a constant potential threat of conjuring the frightening demon of the higher authority (such as the principal of the school).
So, these rulers are interested in efficiency. Obviously, there must occasionally be SOME violation of some of the rules so that the rulers can make examples out of the violators. This is good for publicizing the penalties so as to promote widespread terror and compliance with a minimum of actual investment of resources.
Also, once the public’s attention has been magnetically attracted by traumatic punishments, there will be cases publicized of the great rewards earned by “heroes” who followed the rules exceptionally well. Beyond the glorification of exceptional cases of compliance with the rules, there can also be promotion of an ideal of even more extreme loyalty to the ruler’s ideals. In that case, we can glorify a hero who, in the face of temptation and even threats of persecution, demonstrates the ultimate in blind faith by rebelling against “unjust regulations” or “corruption.” The “whistleblower” and the “reformer” are, ironically, the ones most hysterically focused on “serving the greater good,” (which has been defined not by them personally, of course, but by the rulers). Why the obsessions with a particular ideal of “the greater good?”
Here is the formula of loyalist conformity: learn the pre-existing rules, follow those inherited rules, ferociously complain when others break them (out of competitive outrage over “them getting away with it” as in the jealous fear of “why should they be allowed to do what everyone else expects to be punished for doing?!?!?”), then heroically face “any consequences” of “blowing the whistle” on others. Loyalists will eventually cling to a particular problem, then a specific method of reform, then resist competing reformers (often with tremendous animosity). Note that it is easiest to rule those who are compulsive, who are most predictable in their reflexive responses, who react with the maximum of consistency.
What is the pinnacle of the fanatical idealism? “With no concern for the appreciation of others, the great heroic savior will sacrifice everything (except their own ego) to be the martyr who bring downs the corrupt rulers (or dies trying).” The ruling system glorifies martyrs and rebels, which serves to program the masses with sentimental and emotional compulsions and obsessions.
In fact, the heroic revolutionary is the most glorified ideal of many systems of imperialist coercion. The two central figures of worship are typically the great savior and the great villain.Those who agonize over “good vs evil” or “right vs wrong” are possessed by the ruler’s demon of worshiping social conformity (paranoia). They obsess over policing their world. They are the ones who most ferociously attempt to instill in others a sense of guilt and shame for “not preventing the world from being how it should not be.”They neglect “the tree of life” in order to attempt to bring down evil, but they are like people trying to preserve one side of a piece of paper while destroying the other side of the same piece of paper. They are perfectionists in hell, climbing high up the forbidden tree of the obsession over good and evil, then refusing to climb down, insisting that first they need to save the tree from leaves.
Specifically, they say that they desperately need to save the tree from “the down side leaves” which means the side of the leaves that face the ground. They turn the leaf upside down in order to save it from having a side that faces down, but soon they are exhausted because there is something wrong with these leaves which almost seem to have two sides, which is an insult to their sincere idealism about how leaves should be.They are fools who are not fully fluent in language and argue over paradoxical phrases like “literal interpretations.” (How can an interpretation be absolutely literal if it is also an interpretation?) They are fanatical conformists, idealistic perfectionists, fundamentalist loyalists, paranoid worshipers of a sacred demon called “evil.”
Of great value to the rulers are confusion, paranoia, guilt, and even panic. With systems of confusing deceptions, such as the Santa Claus myth, the behavior of naive children can be very efficiently influenced. The anticipation of heavenly rewards can be contrasted with anticipation of embarrassing “gifts” of coal for the disobedient, untamed child.
Through the methods of deception, small amounts of reward or punishment can be used for even greater influence. Further, by concentrating the rewards or punishments in to special rituals such as the Christmas morning festivities, maximum lasting emotional impact can be achieved. The idea of the great benefactor is driven deep in to the psychological frameworks of the impressionable children of many cultures.
In order to maximize efficiency, the rulers also tend to concentrate their acts of violence. A few very disturbing attacks can be more much effective at intimidating the target populations, especially if the attacks are well-publicized, then frequent small attacks.
Rather than an occasional smack on the wrist, parents can efficiently rule through the psychological intimidation of “do you want a spanking?” Of course, occasional fulfillment of these threats maximizes compliance. The best threats may be those that are big and emotionally-preocuppying, yet without being altogether disturbing (like so much that it interrupts the economic productivity of the human resources). Generally, programming disgust or contempt is sufficient to produce compliance. However, in some cases, disturbing certain subjects may be valuable to the rulers- or even sacrificing them, such as in rituals of human sacrifice like capital punishment or warfare.
Less extreme than disturbing the subjects (terrorizing them) is crippling or handicapping them. This is typically much easier than constantly terrorizing them and can be done in a variety of ways.
For the moment, let’s consider obvious things like high-heeled shoes and then biochemical intoxication. The high-heeled shoes not only impair the ability to walk, but have long-term health effects on those influenced to wear them regularly. But that is a relatively small “handicap.”
As for constant intoxication, that can be produced by programming the masses to desire to eat substances that impair their neurological functioning, then providing those substances in abundance, even at the exclusion of any alternative. Obvious instances would be alcoholic beverages, but there is a long list of substances that rulers may value for promoting compliance among the subject populations.
Another obvious example would be cola beverages, with acidic pH typically in the range of 2.5 (which is not acidic enough to damage a healthy stomach, but will steal energy / electrons from the subject organism). Some substances promoted by the rulers are highly toxic, others moderately toxic, and other addictive without being especially damaging- at least as long as the addict can avoid withdrawal symptoms by maintaining their dependency on the medications or other intoxicating drugs.
As a result of the deliberate systems of biochemical intoxication, certain subjects will experience chronic pain or fatigue, and others chronic brain fog, seizures, or sudden inability to concentrate. Whether the medical crippling is moderate or extreme, physical or neurological, the rulers may greatly value a bureaucracy to govern the administration of “food” and drugs. The lower-ranking priests of the ruling class will be systematically hypnotized, then they will swear oaths to the system and finally be licensed as agents of the system for programming medical doctrines in to the masses. The practices of these “medical doctors” will then be protected and promoted (such as when subsidized by tax-payer funding). Further, competition can be excluded, especially competition that promotes health and detoxification, which tend to reduce compliance and require the rulers to use greater amounts of force (and more frequently) in order to maintain the submission of their subjects. (Of course, any method of promoting health that is especially effective can be adopted by the rulers and forbidden to the subjects.) labeled jar A brilliant system for promoting paranoia is the use of diagnostic labels as if those labels have the power to cause illness. Naive, intoxicated, hypnotized subjects can be programmed to worship a demon which they believe is possessing them, such as by telling them that “your baldness is causing you to lose your hair.” By making up a name for an effect and then referencing that diagnostic label for a symptom as if it is a cause of the symptom, the witchcraft of these licensed agents of the rulers can produce massive amounts of paranoia and even hysterical panics, leading the gullible to line up for “mandatory, free shots” that may produce well-documented detrimental effects (that are probably unknown to the well-indoctrinated subjects). Note further that this is all “hidden in plain sight,” yet directly referencing these topics may produce fits of repulsion in those most loyal to the system (those most terrified from social paranoias). Extracting the immature from this system can be time-consuming.
The physical tension of the passionate loyalists can be extreme. Further, the system typically involves frequent impairments to the functioning of the immune system, such as cough suppressants. Thus, the process of discontinuing to imbibe the primary intoxicants of the system can involve a sudden re-activation of the immune system. For those with economic paranoia, a re-activation of the immune system can mean unpaid time off from work. That can be terrifying.
Also note that nothing presented here is a condemnation of the system. If I tell you how a fence can be built to trap your dog in your yard, that is not a condemnation of the system for trapping the dog, is it? When a subject of this system is ripe to discontinue the worship of the invented demons of this system, then they will be able to recognize the system with minimal or moderate repulsion, rather than with tantrums of contempt and hysterical panics of guilt, leading to idealist insistence on finding ways of reforming or correcting the system. Who trained the masses to relate to revelations about this system with feelings of guilt and desperation to fix the system (or destroy it) and thus be the perfectionist savior of the millions of deceived subjects of the system? The system indoctrinated the masses with guilt. Guilt is paranoia about future punishment. What is the pinnacle of all threats? The threat of damnation to eternal tortures. What is the pinnacle of all bribery? The promise of rewards after death, such as through karmically-segregated reincarnation in to various degrees of paradise. There are many deceptions that can be promoted to the masses about various kinds of spiritual superiority. These competing fads can come and go like the ideals in the famous story of the Star-Bellied Sneetches. How much should we agonize over how to best prevent the massive deceptions of innocent children performed through ritual indoctrinations such as the myths of Santa Claus or Cinderella or the Superhero Power Rangers of the Criminal Justice League? We should agonize exactly as much or as little as our social conditioning dictates. There is no way to prevent all social conditioning. Social conditioning is part of the reality of all social animals. There are simply occasional evolutionary leaps in the effectiveness of competing systems of social conditioning. Respect the secrets of the rulers. Respect the rulers. Respect the rules. Be aware that influencing public perception is the greatest weapon of the rulers. They sacrifice who it is convenient for them to sacrifice. However, they demonize and “spare” their greatest partners in terrifying their subjects. It is no great slogan to put on a tombstone that someone was unjustly demonized by the rulers. Imagine a parade of non-violent protests condemning that another sincere, heroic savior was “unjustly punished” and consider if such parades perform the greatest possible service to the rulers. What a great ritual for glorifying the sacred rebel!
So, why did the Romans so rigorously publicize the story of a hero to worship who was “unjustly” tortured and then executed in a ritual of human sacrifice? Publicizing the drama (whether fictional or accurate) may serve the purposes of the empire. Is the story of Osiris or Mithras or Serapis all the more emotionally-powerful because of the “final victory” by the holy child of a virgin who is resurrected as the Divine Superhero over the Imperialist villains? The imperialists seem to think that there is great emotional power in that particular “happy ending.” They love that story so much that they put it in to lots of languages and made many variations to it. That story, in all it’s glamour and glory and gore, is the crowning pinnacle of all imperialist cultures so far.
REPLY from J.F.:The game is rigged. The whistles apparently need to be blown now more than ever, though, when blown, they only help to increase the paranoia, and helplessness, which ‘seems’ justified, and even neccesary.

More from J.R:

There are different kinds of whisteblowing. Not all are “idealistic.” There is filing a lawsuit, shouting to warn your family from approaching a dangerous boundary because a train is coming, or trying to launch a publicity stunt protest with bullhorns and signs to intimidate or shame the opposition in to some kind of reform.

There are also two very distinct kinds of paranoia. One is an indicator of a lasting exposure to an accurately perceived risk, like I am so paranoid about theft that I buy a dead bolt lock and use it in my front door. That kind of “paranoia” eventually resolves in to action, like a sense of being bothered enough to do something different, to explore some new action. That is “healthy.”

There is also paranoid delusion, which is like when someone has deep terror about the possibility that their own government would ever intentionally do anything that is not “very beneficial to everyone”, like a state lottery gambling promotion that is horrible financially for most of the participants. So, there is the first delusion (programmed by propaganda) and then a complex set of “compensations,” like distractions from the obvious. So, there can be delusions that lead to paranoia like the idea that there is a form of physical reality called diabetes or goiter which possesses people and alters their blood sugar or produces growths on the neck. That is delusion and it is rooted in paranoia.

In the case of goiter, it is the relative absence of iodine (relative to “poisons” like flouride and chlorine) which prevents the thyroid gland from properly functioning and removing waste, thus leaving a “growth” of dead cells that the body is unable to remove. The growth or tumor is physically real, but it is an effect or symptom.

Then, a linguistic label is created called “goiter,” which is related to as a cause. The Almighty creator is rejected so that the winner can instead worship the demon of goiter and try to fight the demon. They take more antibiotics to fight the demon that they worship, which helps a bit for 3 days, but then causes 5 other problems.

Soon, the worshiper of mainstream demons is scheduling a surgery and arranging to live with 6 lifelong medical addictions. They fight not just the demon of goiter, but also diabetes and obesity and hypertension and a long list of demons that they claim to “have” (to be possessed by). “I have diabetes, which is a linguistic label for an effect. I am worshiping the label and fighting it and trying to remove the label from a jar by rotating the jar exactly 90 degrees.”

That is deep in mainstream paranoid delusion. That is the typical program of the masses.

The same kind of delusional paranoia is at the core of many other fields of activity, such as investing. “I am investing to hedge against inflation.” That could be functional paranoia, but only if people are actually monitoring objective measures of inflation. Most people are fighting something that is not present. They do not recognize that inflation is a human behavior. They think of it as some mysterious demon. Of course, that is just what the media programs them to do.

“I must concentrate all of my wealth in to mortgaged real estate to reduce risk.” That is delusional. Diversification reduces risk, not concentration- especially not in to the least safe market available: investing in real estate with borrowed funds.
