Divide Et Impera.
The Romans used it to subdue their empire, and now politicians are using it to maintain their power.
Unfortunately, the masses seem ignorant enough, docile enough, and impotent enough to allow it to happen.
1. The people blindly commit themselves to fully take sides with political parties, and do not realize that no political entity has a monopoly on being right. They are thus splintered by their own ignorance.
That’s why many wise folks tell their children to never discuss politics with those they want to maintain familial or friendly relations with. Issues are purposely manipulated along party lines in order to divide the masses and strengthen those in power.
2. They blindly believe the news they’re being fed. News, more often than not, are fabricated just like movies – an ingenuous way of fragmenting the people even further.
For instance, the 1976 rescue of Israeli hostages, kidnapped on an Air France flight and held in Entebbe in Uganda, and the 1972 Munich Olympic Games kidnapping of 11 Israeli athletes were both fabricated by Israelis themselves in order to portray Palestinians as terrorists. For decades the world has bought into those lies.
Now imagine the many more Fake News that are accepted as gospel. For example, when lone criminals commit their supposed massacres, keep in mind that unless it’s a Hollywood movie, almost no one kills another being for pleasure, let alone exterminating tens or hundreds of total strangers.
The government is usually the one behind these crimes – actual (Government Black Ops) or fake (scripted, acted, and prerecorded “events”) – since it uses them to pass laws that will either benefit itself (i.e., benefit the highfalutin politicians and their lavish lifestyle) or favor those who bribe State Officials to execute those hidden agendas.
And the best way for the government to roll out those agendas is by using these “events” which generate fear, followed by Nazi-like intimidation and control. Subsequently, a police state is erected to keep the masses docile, and protect the politicians and the agenda manipulators from the ire of the people.
3. They blindly think that most elections that matter are real and not rigged.
For the most part, an election is simply a piece of theater put together to entertain the people and make them feel they are living in a democracy. In each campaign there’s a sacrificial lamb that is hired to facilitate the “election” of the one they want in.
The person who ends up winning is always chosen by the powers that be. The people only get to know whom they have selected on Election Day. That’s how dissenting voices are kept away from the political process, thereby rendering the people impotent.
Joseph Stalin understood that when he said, “The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count the votes do.”
In conclusion, realize that, “Those who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to know.” 1 Corinthians 8:2
