The “dependent victim” psyop on planet Earth

The “dependent victim” psyop

The psychological operation to destroy the individual

by Jon Rappoport

February 28, 2015

“American and British feminism has amazingly collapsed backward again into whining, narcissistic victimology… Too many of today’s young feminists seem to want hovering, paternalistic authority figures to protect and soothe them, an attitude I regard as servile, reactionary and glaringly bourgeois…” (Camille Paglia, the National Catholic Review, 2/25/15)

I could have titled this piece: “What government fears: the black entrepreneur.”

But the situation is much wider than that—-

Any person who comes out of an “officially designated victim-group” …and then succeeds in life on his own… and then goes one step further and refuses to identify his entire existence with his group… but instead stands as a unique individual… why, that person, at the very least, must be a criminal, if not a terrorist, right?

That’s the crux of the issue: never leave your group.

That’s how society, civilization, and culture are promoted these days.

“Groups have needs, agendas, and problems, and the solution will come from government.” That’s the all-embracing formula.

Who would invent and expand that formula? The beneficiary. Government.

The fake appearance is: victim groups are fighting for recognition and special status, and the government is pushing back—but that’s now a ruse. That’s a cover story. In fact, victim groups and government have the same goal: a relationship based on dependence. One side depends and the other side gives and protects.

The individual is out of the equation. He is portrayed as the greed-obsessed reason these victim groups exist and need help in the first place.

Banks, Wall Street, and mega-corporations are depicted as the end result of individualism, whereas the government is valiantly striving to solve this endemic problem.

In fact, government, banks, Wall Street, and mega-corporations are joined at the hip. They brush each others’ teeth first thing every morning.

Political correctness and the burgeoning movement to outlaw “offensive language” are merely tactics to: preserve groups’ separate identities; foment conflict between them; and ultimately foster their dependence on government authority.

The idea that the free and independent individual is a sociopath responsible for the existence of victims is absurd.

The truth is, you can’t get free individuals to depend on government. Only “besieged groups” can be relied on for that purpose.

In the State’s eyes, a perfect society would be composed of groups who have entirely forgotten the concept of the individual, as if it never existed.

Peter Collero, of the department of sociology, Western Oregon University, has written a book titled: The Myth of Individualism: How Social Forces Shape Our Lives:

“Most people today believe that an individual is a person with an independent and distinct identification. This, however, is a myth.”

When Callero writes “identification,” he isn’t talking about ID cards and Social Security numbers. He’s talking about an absence of any uniqueness from person to person. He’s asserting there is no significant distinction between any two people. There aren’t two individuals to begin with. They’re a group.

This downgrading of the individual human spirit is far from accidental. It’s launched as a sustained propaganda campaign, the ultimate purpose of which is top-down control over billions of people organized into groups.

“The cold truth is that the individualist creed of everybody for himself and the devil take the hindmost is principally responsible for the distress in which Western civilization finds itself — with investment racketeering at one end and labor racketeering at the other. Whatever merits the [individualist] creed may have had in the days of primitive agriculture and industry, it is not applicable in an age of technology, science, and rationalized economy. Once useful, it has become a danger to society.” (Charles Beard, 1931)

Beard, a celebrated historian, sees no difference between individual racketeering and the individual freely choosing and living his own life. In making this judgment, he becomes an intellectual/propaganda racketeer of the highest order.

“British empiricist philosophy is individualist. And it is of course clear that if the only criterion of true and false which a man accepts is that man’s, then he has no base for social agreement. The question of how man ought to behave is a social question, which always involves several people; and if he accepts no evidence and no judgment except his own, he has no tools with which to frame an answer.” (Jacob Bronowski, Science and Human Values, 1956).

Bronowski is quite sure that hearing other people’s evidence and then keeping one’s own counsel is wrong. One has to accept that evidence on its face. This is sheer idiocy. Individuals are capable of deciding, on their own, what social agreements to enter into.

Here’s what journalist Glenn Greenwald (who is gay) has written about the symbolic nature of the American Presidency. Though not making reference to the group vs. the individual, Greenwald’s remarks illustrate the degree to which victim-symbology has taken hold in the US:

“Hillary is banal, corrupted, drained of vibrancy and passion. I mean, she’s been around forever, the Clinton circle. She’s a fucking hawk and like a neocon, practically. She’s surrounded by all these sleazy money types who are just corrupting everything everywhere. But she’s going to be the first female president, and women in America are going to be completely invested in her candidacy. Opposition to her is going to be depicted as misogynistic, like opposition to Obama has been depicted as racist. It’s going to be this completely symbolic messaging that’s going to overshadow the fact that she’ll do nothing but continue everything in pursuit of her own power. They’ll probably have a gay person [as President] after Hillary who’s just going to do the same thing.”

Regardless of the fact that the State and its allies are real oppressors who contribute mightily to creating real victims, what I’m talking about here is something quite apart from that: growing numbers of people who voluntarily take on the victim-mantle and seek comfort in nests of self-promoting groups who exaggerate and distort their own claims to special status.

The State needs these people. The State wants these people. Increasingly, the State employs these people.

Edward Bernays, the father of modern public relations, wrote: “It is sometimes possible to change the attitudes of millions but impossible to change the attitude of one man.”

Bernays understood that the basis of successful propaganda is a mass audience, an audience composed of groups, not individuals.

Retired high-level propaganda operative, Ellis Medavoy (pseudonym), once told me, “There are two aspects of propaganda. There is everything you do to get people to think of themselves as group members. And then there are all the messages you send to those conditioned group members. You need both aspects.”

The Matrix Revealed

When a group assigns itself solid “victim-status,” it creates one basic rule: a member must not leave the group. Why? Because if he does, he’s claiming he is no longer a victim—and that assertion is a betrayal.

Nice and neat. A prison.

“I’m a free individual.”

“You’re crazy. There is no such thing. Now get back in the group where you belong.”

Down at the root, betrayal begins as self-betrayal. The individual gives up the ghost. From that point on, his politics don’t matter. He forgets what he could have been. He defines himself by race and religion and country and rank ideology and group. He finds words and feeling through which he can express his role in a stage play that decays him from the inside out.

Eventually, if lunatics have their way, every person on planet Earth will be designated a victim. That will be the group of groups.

It won’t matter why and how everyone supposedly turns out to be a victim. The reasons will be forgotten. People will “instinctively” sign on to the agenda.

And the management team running the world will put another check mark on their sheet of objectives:

“Earth is beginning to resemble one giant hospital/mental institution. Break out the champagne.”

    The AGW Climate scandal exposed, and it is now time to relax and enjoy this classical re-enactment of a show featuring Big Brother’s conflict with Reality !

    In the closing scene, Big Brother will learn to recite the prayer of the King of Siam in public:

    “O Waa Ta Goo Siam.”

    Brilliant article! Being a ‘lone-wolf’ now requires one to wear a star on their lapel. From a historical perspective it is highly revealing to see how the means and methods of psyop were tested, perfected and dispersed throughout society in order to manage the herd. Where would we be today without the valiant efforts of the Fabians and those master alchemists that once roamed the halls of the Travistock Institute?

  3. Mickey Johnson says:

    Are you part of the 99%? There are some groups with which you can’t deny being a part, groups based on economic status or age for instance, but you can decide not to let that association dictate your beliefs, choices, friends, and enemies. Identifying with larger groups can lead one to accept or advocate for policies which would negatively affect him/her or any smaller groups with which he/she identifies in favor of policies that appear to help the “greater good.”

    One group that doesn’t identify themselves as victims is gun owners, even though the government has obviously been attacking their rights. I myself am opposed to a national gun owners database and I feel that there is already enough oversight in most cases and in some too much oversight and restriction, but I’m sure there are many who would shun a gun owner for showing interest in any controls beyond the 2nd amendment, no matter how sensible, such as perhaps an increase in oversight in the case of some of these traveling gun shows.

    So, while they may not see themselves as victims, they sure see those who want to increase gun control as potential threats and treat them as such. I don’t own a gun, but I do identify with this group to some degree, and I highly value having the option to go buy one if I decide to someday without undue scrutiny or being put on a list.

    • Tom Ness says:

      I hate to be the one to break the news…. It has been revealed (or confirmed) through the Snowden leaks that the NSA pretty much records every phone conversation and email. Every gun purchase through a licensed dealer goes through a background check, the information for which is transmitted by telephone. It matters not if the background check authorities are required to “destroy” the paperwork for the check if the NSA recorded the phone call. We DO have a de facto national gun registry via the backdoor, and have for some time.

  4. From Québec says:

    The goal of the NWO is to create a giant international Melting pot.
    No country, no borders.

    They want: One religion, One language, One currency, One mixed race, One government, Everyone under a tyrannical unelected government.

    How do they think they will reach their goal if they keep dividing people into groups?

    All these groups want special treatments. They don’t want to blend into a Melting pot. They want to be special. They like being different. They are proud to be Black, White, Muslim, Gay, Feminist, Christian, whatever. And they want to remain that way even if it means to be a victim for the rest of their lives. They will fight to death to remain what they are. It gives them self importance.

    Good luck with their NWO!
    Unless, like Jon says: “Eventually, if lunatics have their way, every person on planet Earth will be designated a victim. That will be the group of groups”.


    “They’ll probably have a gay person [as President] after Hillary who’s just going to do the same thing.” (Glenn Greenwald)

    There is already a gay President in the White House…lol

    • middleway says:

      A repeated objective, that is often ignored due to its repugnance, is that those of the elite brand will require no more than 1 billion (trans)humans to agreeably serve their every need; A rather large group of victims indeed.

    • ozziethinker says:

      I think they’ll keep the borders in place as a control measure. Countries will be “brands” of identical order (or chaos, depending how you argue it). Other than that you are spot on.

  5. spacecommand says:

    Boy howdy you got it right. The highest achievements in a generic sense are forbidden to individuals unless they submit to a victim group. That diminishes their outright performance and ability to work in small groups or even one on one as a part of their work. I know this personally as realizing a true resume that is astonishing sometimes for both parties, as a letter reaches its public selections. How do you complain about funding when your work is transcendent? You may choose to complain about outright fools obtaining massive resources that cannot compare with even one of your achievements. I have a chronology on this literary service, point by point. I cannot explain why it is raised to such a high and memorable level. Man does not live by bread alone.

  6. TY, for being light, in the dark Sir.

  7. ozziethinker says:

    I feel better after reading that, Jon. They don’t come more individual than me.

    Interesting about the “gay” thing; Bill Clinton [privately, in the throws of impeachment] moaning that his wife had more affairs (with women) than him. Of course Obama has also be saddled with numerous rumours, including questions as to the status of his “wife”. But this might be just cartoon “profiling”…..

    When a “Messiah” behaves as he has done in politics, everyone should know “democracy” is one giant SHAM.


  8. John Reeves says:

    Thank You for your insightful work.
    It’s funny, I can usually ‘tell it’s you’
    The Usual Suspects.
    Very Important what you are doing.
    I commend you.

    That many people long for a parent and cannot grow up is at the root it sure does seem to be the case. No matter how absurd, ridiculous, damaging, insulting and a long list of abuses and violations people insist upon a “they” or “them” above that are viewed as all knowing and “protecting” parent yet this so called “authority” only exists in the imagination. Trusted unaware sorcerers convince unaware participants to march obediently in for regular appointments to have their brains and bodies damaged, shamed and humiliated yet imagine without such demeaning “comforting” that the authority would forsake them and must obey or Santa will put rocks in their sock.How insane is that to actually enjoy and demand your own destruction and demise? Anyone aware of the sham violent thieves posing as “owners” and uses their mind in a sane peaceful fashion is labeled “ill” An Alfred Hitchcock nightmare where masses of insane turn in to psychic cannibals, attack eat and destroy the only hope they have. Hopefully before the vortex sucks it all in to he witches brew some new positive twist will occur. Its not looking good for the fools right now or anyone else.

    Robert Pirsig, author of ‘Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance’ and ‘Lila’ mentioned in his introduction to ‘Lila’ that he felt that perhaps the one and only contribution from America to the rest of the world in the field of the Humanities, or Society in general, was the concept of ‘individual freedom’ which concept the founding fathers of that country obtained from the original inhabitants, the American Indians. Throughout history the overwhelming majority of people have had very little experience of individual freedoms. I think this is only a recent phenomena, at least in the Western world, though no doubt isolated incidences of such people may have existed here & there. I lived with villagers in India for the last three decades and I can tell you they are the most gregarious people I have ever met; very few of them can remain alone for more than a few hours. Yet they are also some of the most zealous ‘freedom fighters’ I have ever met. Very difficult to ‘yoke’ someone who has control of his senses. Of course that is fading fast now. Drunkenness and TV seem to go hand-in-hand.

  11. Bill says:

    Individuality is hallucinatory!
    Humans are the victimized group we all are in whether we like being controlled as such by our maker, elites, aliens or whyever. (The only interrogative word not in the xxxxever group, eh?)

    Individuality seems possible via being a self supporting mountain hermit in the wilderness.
    Funny, even our COmmunication languages (languish spelling for the demonic) group us.

    As soul incarnate creations trapped in the matrix we are a victimized group by definition.
    We don’t get paid with their money to grovel out your existence unless grouped further.

    There is no such thing as an individual soldier, believer, worker, player, writer, reader, etc., etc., etc…
    A single self supporting individual is a rarity now because secret societies, medieval guilds and more recently, labor unions group us further.

    Dream on!!!

  12. Tom Ness says:

    We generally recognize two things about academic research: the funders of research have an interest in increasing knowledge of the subject being studied, and they often have a financial stake in the subject.

    So it was, upon first laying eyes on a copy of E. O. Wilson’s and Bert Holldobler’s…

    _The Superorganism: The Beauty, Elegance, and Strangeness of Insect Societies_

    …that I realized the information in the book represented generations of scientific inquiry costing many millions of dollars to conduct. If we ask who funded the admittedly fascinating research and what they hoped to gain from it, we might find the very group of elites who see in anthills and beehives the type of society they wish to steer humanity towards.

    What these elites have failed to realize is that the human economy is not and never can be simplified down to insect inputs/outputs. Their top-down economic control and Megacorp construction will always crash and burn from the very instability such simplified systems veer towards. The human economy requires millions of small entrepreneurs and dispersed decision-making to function well, and that requires INDIVIDUALITY.
