Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism
Dr. Robert J. Lifton’s Eight Criteria for Thought Reform
Milieu Control. This involves the control of information and communication both within the environment and, ultimately, within the individual, resulting in a significant degree of isolation from society at large.
Mystical Manipulation. There is manipulation of experiences that appear spontaneous but in fact were planned and orchestrated by the group or its leaders in order to demonstrate divine authority or spiritual advancement or some special gift or talent that will then allow the leader to reinterpret events, scripture, and experiences as he or she wishes.
Demand for Purity. The world is viewed as black and white and the members are constantly exhorted to conform to the ideology of the group and strive for perfection. The induction of guilt and/or shame is a powerful control device used here.
Confession. Sins, as defined by the group, are to be confessed either to a personal monitor or publicly to the group. There is no confidentiality; members’ “sins,” “attitudes,” and “faults” are discussed and exploited by the leaders.
Sacred Science. The group’s doctrine or ideology is considered to be the ultimate Truth, beyond all questioning or dispute. Truth is not to be found outside the group. The leader, as the spokesperson for God or for all humanity, is likewise above criticism.
Loading the Language. The group interprets or uses words and phrases in new ways so that often the outside world does not understand. This jargon consists of thought-terminating clichï¿½s, which serve to alter members’ thought processes to conform to the group’s way of thinking.
Doctrine over person. Member’s personal experiences are subordinated to the sacred science and any contrary experiences must be denied or reinterpreted to fit the ideology of the group.
Dispensing of existence. The group has the prerogative to decide who has the right to exist and who does not. This is usually not literal but means that those in the outside world are not saved, unenlightened, unconscious and they must be converted to the group’s ideology. If they do not join the group or are critical of the group, then they must be rejected by the members. Thus, the outside world loses all credibility. In conjunction, should any member leave the group, he or she must be rejected also. (Lifton, 1989)
Prager does a very good job here at boiling down what is going on.
The Left lies because the truth shows what a disaster their policies are, so they must lie to maintain power.
They do it because it works.
It is also easy. Media Matters (aka George Soros) has made it very easy for them to have a fake quote and then plausible deniability for relying on MM.
He sure does.
DEFUND the CBC.
“Why the Left Calls Good People Racist”
Simple because they are not interested in the truth.
And maintaining the lie seems to pay pretty good.
It works, but it soon leaves them in a bubble where everyone is the same color as them - and anyone who isn’t has left them behind.
Let’s not over-complicate things. The Left calls everybody racist because it is an easy way to control people. It’s like “abracadabra” and poof your opponent is kneeling before you.
And they have followed the same pattern with all the other “isms” and “phobias”. First, invent a label for someone who disagrees with a certain position. Next, attach a stigma to the label. Last, call anyone who disagrees with your position that newly invented label and then clutch your pearls and faint, as if that person is just the worst monster alive, and make sure it is seen on TV. Presto, you have people begging to be your slave.
“Transphobia” anyone? Hey, I don’t think we should let men in dresses into girls’ locker rooms and bathrooms and play women’s sports. Transphobe!!!!!! Oh, I’m sorry - please go ahead and destroy my culture and society and place my daughters and sisters at risk so that I can avoid being called that name. Thank you, master.
> “My email to the author of the article, in which I asked for these changes and explained the entire context, did not receive a reply.”
Prager is pissing into the wind. Sternly worded emails have as much effect as politely asking Adam Schiff to tell the truth.
Follow Nunes’s example: sue the crap out of them, make them pay and they will not only stop, they will haul ass back to the holes they popped out of.
> “If good liberals and conservatives don’t fight the left, truth loses.”
Set the example Rabbi. Show the way. Sue them and expose their lies, their hypocrisy.
Racism - where is thy sting?
Law doesn’t work that way. In court, you can’t say “I did it because I was told it was ok.” That will land you in jail.
The only way they can avoid liability is by retracting.
“in a bubble where everyone is the same color as them”
Very true. That’s why their ultimate goal is to make that bubble the majority. Coming soon.
Racism = Democrat thugs oppressing political speech.
Because thats all they have.
I am a Purdue alumnus. Purdue slid off the scales many years ago. We sent our daughter there and had to pull her out as she wasn’t learning anything useful. She was being indoctrinated (more than ten years ago now). A great institution has fallen. I have written to them many times, but they don’t listen or respond. My husband (also a Purdue alumnus) won’t hire from them as their grads are too stupid. I kid you not. Sad.
They do it because it works.
And it works because weve let it work.
It seems that Purdue’s newly appointed vice provost for diversity and inclusion Dr. Gates was caught telling a lie and can’t admit it.
