It is a fact that few things terrify us more than not fitting in with the group.

Think of this when you remember masks, agreeing to and pushing religiously the poison jabs, social distancing that had you fearing and telling on your neighbors, self-imposed lockdowns, hating the “anti” and “conspiracy” crowd — that turned out to be right about everything… again.

Back, and back, and back throughout history, as if on endless repeat, the group is misled, misinformed, mind-controlled and manipulated to behave one way, and very, very few dare to resist. They become pariahs, ostracized and isolated, as the group once again loses their mind, and forget they are NOT in control of their actions.

…the dangers of conformity reach pathological levels when, as in our day, a society becomes infected with lies. Politicians lie almost as frequently as they open their mouths. A degenerate education system teaches lies on topics ranging from science, to history, ethics, economics, and politics. The media lies about world events. While corporations lie to us about the value, or safety, of their products. With no shortage of lies percolating throughout society, the modern path of conformity leads in errant ways. It encourages us to go into debt to buy things we don’t need, to consume unhealthy foods, to be obedient to those in power, to take pharmaceutical drugs that do more harm than good, to eschew our passion in flavor of money or social status, and if we ever feel anxious or depressed, the conformist way is to distract ourselves with screens, or to numb ourselves with psychotropic drugs

Mind control is all around you, all the time. It’s in all your favorite books, TV shows and movies, liminal and sub-liminal. It’s more aggressive and insidious than ever. Learn to see it. Learn to free yourself from it… or don’t. It’s safer in the crowd.

You conform, all the time, without knowing it. This isn’t always a bad thing. When it’s a natural progression based on tested and elevated, aware, conscious decisions, it behooves us to conform to a more aligned and matured cultural and societal behavior.

But that’s not what the psychotic agenda-pushers want. They want division, separateness, self-sabotage, disempowerment, dissociation, and psychologically inept adults. And they’ve succeeded in many ways. Look around, observe how desperate you are to find your clique, your club, your flag, your impassioned activists, your adolescent entitlement.

Conformity is massively profitable, and makes us easier to control, to influence, to misguide and manipulate, and that’s the point. Why listen to the same robotic, mind-numbing, brain-dumbing “music” everyone else is listening to? Why buy the same yoga pants? Why do yoga? Why paint your face the same way? Why get tattoos to cover up and/or deface more and more of your body? If everyone is doing it, you’re not being rebellious, unique, contrarian, or even interesting. You’re conforming, yet again.

Eyes open.
