Before we became fully mind-controlled members of the herd; before we were Mericans, Europeans, Mexicans, Africans, republicans, democrats, doctors, lawyers, grill cooks, before we were Christians, Muslims or Jews, we were born unique and truly free individuals. But then the ancient evil of the “collective mind,” the “herd mentality,” took hold of us and thus began the life long process of exterminating our unique individuality:
The individual vs. collective mind control

“Inside the mind, there is a landscape of reality. Its purpose? Maintaining personal stability. Society’s programmers feed that landscape, they provide it with more material to confirm that the overall portrait of reality is correct.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
Under a big lie, the truth is the great shocker. I’ve been writing about one of these truths for years, and I always measure the reaction or lack of reaction.
I’m talking about the mass of mainstream evidence that, in the United States, every year, the medical system kills 225,000 people. This is a conservative assessment.
I point out that the death toll, when extrapolated to a decade, is 2.25 million Americans.
When I’ve presented these figures to mainstream reporters, doctors, scientists, some independent reporters, the response is:
Whether I’ve communicated through writing or in person, it’s as if I haven’t said anything at all.
There is a blank space, a hiatus, a fracture in time.
It’s as if I’ve been remarking on the weather…and who cares about the weather.
But of course, there is a split-second reaction: “No, that couldn’t be true.”
There are several supporting “reasons” for assuming the medically caused death-numbers couldn’t be true, and these reasons also flicker for a moment on the screen of the mind:
“If that were true, I would have heard about it.”
“If those figures were true, everything I’ve heard about doctors helping people, saving people, giving them the best care…I’d have to rethink all that.”
“No group could be killing that many people.”
I would call those and other similar “reasons” normal and average reactions.
Beyond them, there is something else going on. The person on the receiving end of the data is doing a scan, so to speak. A scan of…
His basic conception of reality.
This inner conception, structure, landscape encompasses many subjects and areas.
It offers great stability, on a subconscious level.
And this structure is suddenly threatened. All of it.
And that must never happen.
Therefore, on a conscious level, the person appears to notice nothing. There is no visible reaction.
Imagine something like this: a landscape composed of tall buildings, offices, government centers, corporate headquarters, media broadcasts beaming out into streets, mountains of conventional data about politics, economics, social conditions—all this and more sitting in the subconscious of a person. And then…
There is an intrusion. A single disruptive intrusion. A fact that shakes the whole structure in the mind, like an earthquake.
Alarms go off. “Reject that fact! Reject it! It’s false! It has to be false! Maintain stability!”
“Stability being restored. The structure is intact. Standards are being rebooted. Normality is being reasserted. Resume standard operations.”
The big truth is neutralized.
Hypnotherapist, Jack True, with whom I did much research in the late 1980s, once put it to me this way in an interview: “A person will do everything in his power to maintain his ‘inner landscape’, because it protects a core of passivity.”
One important power is the power to reject. Reject with no compromise. In the active person, this is a prelude to more discovery, more knowledge, more insight.
In Adjustment Team (1954), Philip K Dick wrote:
“You were supposed to have been in the Sector when the adjustment began. Because of an error you were not. You came into the Sector late — during the adjustment itself. You fled, and when you returned it was over. You saw, and you should not have seen. Instead of a witness you should have been part of the adjustment. Like the others, you should have undergone changes… something went wrong. An error occurred. And now a serious problem exists. You have seen these things. You know a great deal. And you are not coordinated with the new configuration.”
What I call the Reality Manufacturing Company wants everyone to have the same inner configuration.
That is the basis of collectivism at the deepest level.
“The people” or “the collective” is a convenient term for “every INDIVIDUAL.”
This has been lost in translation. It has been garbled, distorted, just as the proprietor of an old-fashioned carnival shell game distorts the audience’s perception with sleight of hand.
Are “the people” one group? Well, that’s the ultimate Globalist formulation.
However, from the point of view of the free individual, things are upside down. It is HIS power that is primary, not the monolithic corporate State’s.
From his point of view, what does the social landscape look like?
It looks like: THE OBSESSION TO ORGANIZE.
I’m not talking about organizations that are actually streamlined to produce something of value. I’m talking about organizations that PLAN MORE ORGANIZATION OF LIFE.
If you want to spend a disturbing afternoon, read through (and try to fathom) the bewildering blizzard of sub-organizations that make up the European Union. I did. And I emerged with a new definition of insanity. OTO. The Obsession to Organize.
OTO speaks of a bottomless fear that somewhere, someone might be living free.
People tend to think their own power is either a delusion or some sort of abstraction that’s never really EXPERIENCED. So when the subject is broached, it goes nowhere. It fizzles out. It garners shrugs and looks of confusion. Power? Are you talking about the ability to lift weights?
And therefore, the whole notion of freedom makes a very small impression, because without power, what’s the message of freedom? A person can choose vanilla or chocolate? He can watch Law&Order or CSI? He can buy a Buick or a Honda? He can take a trip to Yosemite or Disney World? He can pack a lunch or eat out at a restaurant? He can ask for a raise or apply for a better job with another company? That’s it? He can swim in his pool or work out at the gym?
He can take Prozac, or Paxil, or Zoloft?
Mostly, as the years roll by, he opts for more cynicism and tries to become a “smarter realist.” And that is how he closes the book on his life.
Every which way power can be discredited or misunderstood…people will discredit it and misunderstand it.
And then all psychological and physiological and mental and physical and emotional and perceptual and hormonal processes undergo a major shift, in order to accommodate to a reality, a space in which the individual has virtually no power at all.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t include this one: “power=greed.” Mountains of propaganda are heaped on people to convince them that having individual power to make something happen is the same as committing crimes against humanity.
Globalism=collectivism=Glob-consciousness. We’re all one Glob. We exist in that great Cheese Melt.
Even the radical Left of the 1960s, who rioted at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, because they believed the nominee, Hubert Humphrey, and his allies wouldn’t stop the war in Vietnam…even that radical force on the Left eventually gave in and morphed into romantic sentimentalists who came to love the State under Clinton and Obama.
Sooner or later, it comes down to the question: does the individual conceive of himself as an individual, or as part of The Group?
Shall the individual discover how much power and freedom and imagination he actually has, or shall he cut off that process of discovery at the knees, in order to join a group whose aims are diluted and foreshortened versions of consciousness and freedom?
The individual answers these questions overtly, with great consideration, or the questions answer and diminish him through wretched default.
But the worst outcome of all is: the individual cannot even conceive of his own life and future in large terms. The individual responds to tighter and control with a shrug, as if to say, “What difference does it make?”
He has bought the collectivist package. His own uniqueness and inner resources are submerged under layers of passive acceptance of the consensus.
And make no mistake about it, this consensus reality, for all its exaltation of the group, is not heraldic in any sense. The propagandized veneer covers a cynical exploitation of every man, woman, and child.
Strapped by an amnesia about his own freedom and what it can truly mean, the individual opts for a place in the collective gloom. He may grumble and complain, but he fits in.
He can’t remember another possibility.
Every enterprise in which he finds himself turns out to be a pale copy of the real thing.
The deep energies and power and desire for freedom remain untapped.
Yet a struggle continues to live. It lives in the hidden places of every individual who wants out, who wants to come back to himself, who wants to stride out on a stage.
Freedom and power again. The shattering of amnesia.
In this stolen world.
A new stage play:
The extinct individual returns.
Petty little hungers and obsessions become great hungers.
Dominoes of the collective begin to fall. The stinking structure collapses, a wing here and a wing there, and the robots open their eyes.
The vast sticky web called “the people” begins to disintegrate in roaring cities and in the mind.
A new instructive message appears on billboards and screens: “normal=crazy.” (emphasis added)
