The way the powers that be (TPTB) are hypnotizing the masses, I believe, is by constantly bombarding them with a stimulus that overloads the senses and causes them to tune out. The powers that be, I think, come from higher up than the government.
I believe there are stronger influences than we, the average person, are unaware of. You may be wondering what this subject has to do with hypnosis.
Well, let me explain. When someone is hypnotized, they are in a trance-like state and more susceptible to suggestion. I believe that the powers that be use this technique on the masses to control them.
By numbing the senses and overloading the mind with stimulation, the masses become more suggestible and easy to control. In this way, the powers that be can keep the masses under their thumb through hypnotic suggestions.
The Power to Hypnotize the Masses
How did the ancient Romans control the masses? One way was through subtle hypnosis. The Roman Empire lasted for over four hundred years, and during that time, the crowds were fed a diet of entertainment and alcohol.
This kept them anesthetized and in a state where they could be controlled. Relaxed and content, they were easy to manipulate. Saturday afternoon, crowds would go down to the Coliseum and watch Christians being fed to the lions.
After that, they would go and drink the local alcoholic booze. Anesthetized out of reality and content, they were easy prey for the ruling elite.
Nothing much has changed today. The masses attend their local football game and watch their favorite club, which they follow like a religion.
After that, they go home and watch soap operas on television. They get invested in the narrative as if it was an aspect of their existence.
Ideally, they’re in a daze and have drifted into a condition where they believe. On Monday mornings, the major topics of discussion are the NFL results or soap opera happenings as though it’s part of their life.
The following week, we will again get sucked into the soap operas and much of the news telling us what they want us to know. Next Saturday, we will be back to watching the football, and the cycle of subtle hypnotizing of the masses continues.
Now, the powers up above can always get away with it. However, it would be a criminal offense if the average person did.
Hitler Hypnotized a Nation
It is often said that if you do not learn from history, you’re doomed to repeat it. This is certainly true when it comes to the rise of Hitler and the Nazi party in Germany.
One of the most chilling aspects of Hitler’s ascent to power was his ability to hypnotize a nation. Through his use of propaganda, he was able to tap into the fears and anxieties of the German people and turn them into a powerful force that would help him achieve his goals.
While we like to think that we are immune to such manipulation, the truth is that we are all susceptible to it. Today, the mass media have a similar hold over people’s minds. Whether through the media, advertising, or even our government, we are constantly being bombarded with messages that seek to control our thoughts and behaviors.
