Social Engineering…What is it?
Recently a friend sent me a clip from YouTube.com about America forming an alliance with our Northern and Southern neighbors of Mexico and Canada. It is called: The North American Union. See this video from You Tube… before you read the rest of this article. It is quite eye-opening. Go to, or cut and paste into your browser, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuBo4E77ZXo
What is Social Engineering anyway? From my understanding it is the study of the habits of people, and how they react to something. It is a secret device to control people without them being conscious of the control taking place. It is a ploy to get you to do something that normally with conscious thought you would be against. Its depths delve into the very psyche of man and it can be used by the powerful to control. It is the secret weapon foisted upon mankind to control our actions by those who seek absolute power.
I know many of you will try to pigeon-hole me into being some kind of a fanatic, who is a conspiracy theorist. I am not. On the same token, if you believe everything you read or hear from the media, you will have a warped sense of reality and what is really real. My theory is, go ahead and listen to the conspiracy theories, and you will see a thread of truth in them. The key to accessing wisdom is being able to discern truth from non-truth.
The dictionary says that Social Engineering is: “The application of the findings of social science to the solution of actual social problems.”
The Wikipedia dictionary says it is: “A collection of techniques used to manipulate people into performing actions or divulging confidential information.” To me, the Wikipedia edition of the meaning of theses words is more accurate.
Powerful leaders and some of our greatest minds know that social engineering works. They have studied how mankind reacts to events or circumstances in negative or positive ways and they learn how to control and manipulate us through this knowledge. Think for a minute how the government levied taxes upon you as an individual by withdrawing it voluntarily out of your company pay-check. How did the government get this done? It is called a W2 form. It used to be that you could pay taxes voluntarily without the interference of government interference. Now, if you work for someone as an “employee” you automatically have the taxes taken out of your gross pay. The government knew through Social Engineering that you would forget how much you actually pay without knowing it. These social engineers knew that if they could get the employers to police the tax system for them, it would make it far easier to collect taxes from them. This is just one example of social engineering.
How was Hitler able to control in such ways as to take an entire nation, many of which were “God-fearing” in their beliefs and make them into killers and exterminators? He did it through Social engineering. Call it peer pressure but it works to control others. You can easily see how peer pressure works upon your own children if you have them. It is not what you say to them at this impressionable age that convinces them of anything. It is what their friends deem important. We all want to be a part of something. Humans are intrinsically social in nature. In other words, we require in the deepest part of our psyche to be social with others. We crave this social interaction with others. Without it we feel disconnected and aimless. This is God-given as we are really all parts of the whole when it comes to human interaction.
Look at the convolution at your own United States Constitution. Our freedoms are being diminished every day by those in the know. Who are these power mongers? Could they possibly be clothed as sheep and yet have an ulterior motive to gain control of the masses? I venture to say that our forefathers, who drafted the original constitution and its inalienable rights to us as humans, would not know it today. Their legal system of their day believed in the “spirit” of the law and not just the letter of it. Both are important, the encoded law, and the spirit behind the encoded law. The spirit of the law is God itself and the intrinsic freedom he has given mankind.
Today our society has come to believe in the encoded law as the all powerful law that should be adhered to. But, without the spirit of this law…it is nothing more than a vehicle to enslave mankind. We call most of the encoded laws of the State and Federal government “administrative law” which only believes in the encoded law and has thrown out, for the most part, the weightier, spirit of the law.
We through it out because we have made a god of education and learning, and have forgotten the wisdom of God needed to interpret the encoded laws of man. Ask yourself this all important question…Why is it that most of our public offices and officials of State, Federal, and local government are mainly made up of lawyers? Why is it that this elite group has control over most of our government affairs? What happened to men and women who believed that the letter of the law can kill and cripple the masses, but the spirit of the law can bring them life and liberty. Where are these God-fearing among our leaders who interpret our laws from this consciousness level? Why are these leaders, not considered qualified to run our governments? Why does justice remain in the hands of the few…the elite?
Why is it now, that unless you are not a lawyer or attorney, it is almost impossible to gain public office? No wonder there are more voters for the popular television show “American Idol” than there are voters for the president of the United States? No wonder people are so disillusioned with our candidates for president and that there is an air of sarcasm when they refer to them? Does their vote really count? Are we really voting for what the media has deemed the proper candidate for president? Why is it only the rich are able to be president? Does our system need to be re-vamped?
Talk about Social Engineering…look at the media moguls. Look at what is coming over the television and news to you everyday. Look at how fear sells, and how the media uses sensationalism to convince you of something. Look how your own government has foisted upon you a system of slavery by offering to take care of you. Is this not Social Engineering to the max? Notice how they do this to you…how they use and foist upon you their devious tactics to subdue you with. They offer you a benefit. This benefit looks good because it is a promise to protect and defend you…it is a promise to take care of you in old age. The benefit blinds us. We pay into a social security system that promises to take care of us, and we soon forget about the words, “In God We Trust.”
Am I saying that social benefits are all bad? No, I am not. I am also part of the social security system. I believe in paying my fair share of taxes and I abide by the same social laws as you. What I am saying is this, don’t be deceived into thinking all these benefits are for your benefit alone. Could they be padding the wallets of those who are the elite? Are there those out there that want to socially control you? Sure, 911 was real, but why was the Patriot Act put into law by our legislators? Was it to be able to control you?
Only time will really tell. You have to ask yourself why was this law engaged so quickly upon us Americans. Did you vote on it? Did you have a voice? I think not.
Wake up Americans, you have believed in something other than the truth. Why have you let the lie of money and power deceive you? Why have you let these social engineers lull you to sleep and take you captive unawares? Why have you let the elite teach your children? Look at all the Social Engineering that has been foisted upon you…from census, to social security, to the government owning all land and property and to you giving them the right to own it all because they would give you a benefit for doing so. You call yourselves free, and you seem free, as long as you agree with their laws and don’t try to change anything. Ask yourself why it has been so hard for the automotive industry to flee from gas powered engines? Who is pulling the strings here? Unfortunately, power corrupts, and absolute power, corrupts absolutely.
You can peacefully change things if you will but gather together as the social humans that you are and voice your beliefs. Stand up for your true freedoms. Stand up and be heard. It takes courage to change a system that is inherently flawed. Quit believing everything you see in the media as it is biased and poised to make you slaves if you but allow it to do so. Get back to basics, to prayer, to honesty and to love. This is the path-way to God and to divine wisdom. You can change things with the help of your creator. Ask yourself this one important question: “If it were all up to me how would this world be?” Would it be happy or sad? Only you and I can take this responsibility back.
