Before our minds were hijacked, part 1
DO ORGANIZED SOCIETIES SABOTAGE HUMAN DESTINY?
“The early northern Europeans, who had made the decision to retain their individual sovereignty, talked of them as monstrous organisms. Sometimes they called such a group a “giant” because the group acted like one single enormous person. Sometimes they called it a snake or serpent because the group organism moved in a sneaky fashion and was poisonous. Dragon was the common term for ‘body politic’. Dragon was an unreal, animallike idea-creation obviously invented for only one purpose — to designate the indescribable group-monster.” — John Harland, Word Controlled Humans, 1981, p. 21
If you think the world has gone crazy—and there’s plenty of evidence it has always been crazy—it could be because of the dominance of words from outside your brain interfering with your own perceptions that form naturally inside your everyday thought processes. Call them inklings or intuition. They trigger barely audible alarms every time something doesn’t sound quite right to you. Minus the programming, this is your own innate intelligence speaking.

Despite the outrageous outbursts of nasty public behavior observed in our confusing times, people are trying to fathom, manipulate and better understand the human thought process (subliminal advertising, neurolinguistic programming, braintainment, etc.). So it’s a natural question to inquire about how human brains worked long before there were cities, before actual language regimented everyone into rigidly defined categories, into nations and occupations, into religions and schools of thought.
When the Founding Fathers launched America, they were obliged by custom to mention God in practically every conversation. Today, that much abused icon seems to most people more like a personal improvement product — or an excuse to murder people — rather than a messiah to be venerated.
The white noise of commercial trivia becomes the way ordinary people live their lives. Our identities are subsumed by the products and attitudes we consume.
The point being that we’ve lost ability to observe the world accurately because we’ve trapped ourselves in names and labels that don’t really match what we’re seeing. Democracy is anything but, because money makes equal justice for all impossible. At this point, only drooling fools believe what they hear on TV, or what their government says.
Politically in the 21st century, this is embarrassingly visible in the lies told by government as they try to hide crimes they constantly commit in someone else’s name. Pick a recent catastrophe — 9/11, Sandy Hook and Las Vegas are merely three among dozens of infamous government-created terror attacks — all designed to chain your mind to their falsely created psychodramas aimed at making you sufficiently fearful to acquiesce to their demonic fakery. This process has rapidly drained the vitality out of the previously robust American system.
I became interested in all this because I heard on the radio that some professor said humans were smarter 40,000 years ago than they are today. And I tried to imagine a group of today’s He-men, dressed in animal furs, who could bring down a 13-ton mastodon with nets, spears and boulders. It was creativity their lives depended upon. Their abilities lie dormant in our genes.
Human intelligence “peaked thousands of years ago and we’ve been on an intellectual and emotional decline ever since,” Professor Gerald Crabtree, head of the genetics laboratory at Stanford University, was recently quoted as saying.
So the dumbing-down phenomenon we have observed in recent years is not only a government program aimed at creating a totalitarian state, but also a natural process accelerated by technological inventions aimed at making us work less while simultaneously degrading our physical and mental abilities.
