The individual vs. collective mind control

The individual vs. collective mind control

“Inside the mind, there is a landscape of reality. Its purpose? Maintaining personal stability. Society’s programmers feed that landscape, they provide it with more material to confirm that the overall portrait of reality is correct.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Under a big lie, the truth is the great shocker. I’ve been writing about one of these truths for years, and I always measure the reaction or lack of reaction.

I’m talking about the mass of mainstream evidence that, in the United States, every year, the medical system kills 225,000 people. This is a conservative assessment.

I point out that the death toll, when extrapolated to a decade, is 2.25 million Americans.

When I’ve presented these figures to mainstream reporters, doctors, scientists, some independent reporters, the response is:


Whether I’ve communicated through writing or in person, it’s as if I haven’t said anything at all.

There is a blank space, a hiatus, a fracture in time.

It’s as if I’ve been remarking on the weather…and who cares about the weather.

It’s quite stunning.

But of course, there is a split-second reaction: “No, that couldn’t be true.”

There are several supporting “reasons” for assuming the medically caused death-numbers couldn’t be true, and these reasons also flicker for a moment on the screen of the mind:

“If that were true, I would have heard about it.”

“If those figures were true, everything I’ve heard about doctors helping people, saving people, giving them the best care…I’d have to rethink all that.”

“No group could be killing that many people.”

I would call those and other similar “reasons” normal and average reactions.

Beyond them, there is something else going on. The person on the receiving end of the data is doing a scan, so to speak. A scan of…

His basic conception of reality.

This inner conception, structure, landscape encompasses many subjects and areas.

It offers great stability, on a subconscious level.

And this structure is suddenly threatened. All of it.

And that must never happen.

Therefore, on a conscious level, the person appears to notice nothing. There is no visible reaction.

Imagine something like this: a landscape composed of tall buildings, offices, government centers, corporate headquarters, media broadcasts beaming out into streets, mountains of conventional data about politics, economics, social conditions—all this and more sitting in the subconscious of a person. And then…

There is an intrusion. A single disruptive intrusion. A fact that shakes the whole structure in the mind, like an earthquake.

Alarms go off. “Reject that fact! Reject it! It’s false! It has to be false! Maintain stability!”

“Stability being restored. The structure is intact. Standards are being rebooted. Normality is being reasserted. Resume standard operations.”

The big truth is neutralized.

Hypnotherapist, Jack True, with whom I did much research in the late 1980s, once put it to me this way in an interview: “A person will do everything in his power to maintain his ‘inner landscape’, because it protects a core of passivity.”

One important power is the power to reject. Reject with no compromise. In the active person, this is a prelude to more discovery, more knowledge, more insight.

In Adjustment Team (1954), Philip K Dick wrote:

“You were supposed to have been in the Sector when the adjustment began. Because of an error you were not. You came into the Sector late — during the adjustment itself. You fled, and when you returned it was over. You saw, and you should not have seen. Instead of a witness you should have been part of the adjustment. Like the others, you should have undergone changes… something went wrong. An error occurred. And now a serious problem exists. You have seen these things. You know a great deal. And you are not coordinated with the new configuration.”

What I call the Reality Manufacturing Company wants everyone to have the same inner configuration.

That is the basis of collectivism at the deepest level.

“The people” or “the collective” is a convenient term for “every INDIVIDUAL.”

This has been lost in translation. It has been garbled, distorted, just as the proprietor of an old-fashioned carnival shell game distorts the audience’s perception with sleight of hand.

Are “the people” one group? Well, that’s the ultimate Globalist formulation.

However, from the point of view of the free individual, things are upside down. It is HIS power that is primary, not the monolithic corporate State’s.

From his point of view, what does the social landscape look like?


I’m not talking about organizations that are actually streamlined to produce something of value. I’m talking about organizations that PLAN MORE ORGANIZATION OF LIFE.

If you want to spend a disturbing afternoon, read through (and try to fathom) the bewildering blizzard of sub-organizations that make up the European Union. I did. And I emerged with a new definition of insanity. OTO. The Obsession to Organize.

OTO speaks of a bottomless fear that somewhere, someone might be living free.

People tend to think their own power is either a delusion or some sort of abstraction that’s never really EXPERIENCED. So when the subject is broached, it goes nowhere. It fizzles out. It garners shrugs and looks of confusion. Power? Are you talking about the ability to lift weights?

And therefore, the whole notion of freedom makes a very small impression, because without power, what’s the message of freedom? A person can choose vanilla or chocolate? He can watch Law&Order or CSI? He can buy a Buick or a Honda? He can take a trip to Yosemite or Disney World? He can pack a lunch or eat out at a restaurant? He can ask for a raise or apply for a better job with another company? That’s it? He can swim in his pool or work out at the gym?

He can take Prozac, or Paxil, or Zoloft?

Mostly, as the years roll by, he opts for more cynicism and tries to become a “smarter realist.” And that is how he closes the book on his life.

Every which way power can be discredited or misunderstood…people will discredit it and misunderstand it.

And then all psychological and physiological and mental and physical and emotional and perceptual and hormonal processes undergo a major shift, in order to accommodate to a reality, a space in which the individual has virtually no power at all.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t include this one: “power=greed.” Mountains of propaganda are heaped on people to convince them that having individual power to make something happen is the same as committing crimes against humanity.

Globalism=collectivism=Glob-consciousness. We’re all one Glob. We exist in that great Cheese Melt.

Even the radical Left of the 1960s, who rioted at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, because they believed the nominee, Hubert Humphrey, and his allies wouldn’t stop the war in Vietnam…even that radical force on the Left eventually gave in and morphed into romantic sentimentalists who came to love the State under Clinton and Obama.

Sooner or later, it comes down to the question: does the individual conceive of himself as an individual, or as part of The Group?

Shall the individual discover how much power and freedom and imagination he actually has, or shall he cut off that process of discovery at the knees, in order to join a group whose aims are diluted and foreshortened versions of consciousness and freedom?

The individual answers these questions overtly, with great consideration, or the questions answer and diminish him through wretched default.

Consider this,…

The Surveillance State is a robot camera. It captures everything, based on the premise that what isn’t Normal is dangerous.

The cartels of the world become the cartels of the mind.

At the outbreak of World War 2, the Council on Foreign Relations began making plans for the post-war world.

The question it posed was this: could America exist as a self-sufficient nation, or would it have to go outside its borders for vital resources?

Predictably, the answer was: imperial empire.

The US would not only need to obtain natural resources abroad, it would have to embark on endless conquest to assure continued access.

The CFR, of course, wasn’t just some think tank. It was connected to the highest levels of US government, through the State Department. A front for Rockefeller interests, it actually stood above the government.

Behind all its machinations was the presumption that planned societies were the future of the planet. Not open societies.

Through wars, clandestine operations, legislation, treaties, manipulation of nations’ debt, control of banks and money supplies, countries could be turned into “managed units.”

Increasingly, the populations of countries would be regulated and directed and held in thrall to the State.

And the individual? He would go the way of other extinct species.

For several decades, the pseudo-discipline called “social science” had been turning out reams of studies and reports on tribes, societal groupings, and so-called classes of people. Groups.

Deeply embedded in the social sciences were psychological warfare specialists who, after World War 2, emerged with a new academic status and new field of study: mass communications.

Their objective? The broadcasting of messages that would, in accordance with political goals, provoke hostility or pacified acceptance in the masses.

Hostility channeled into support of new wars; acceptance of greater domestic government control.

Nowhere in these formulas was the individual protected. He was considered a wild card, a loose cannon, and he needed to be demeaned, made an outsider, and characterized as a criminal who opposed the needs of the collective.

Collective=robot minds welded into one mind.

As the years and decades passed, this notion of the collective and its requirements, in a “humane civilization,” expanded. Never mind that out of view, the rich were getting richer and poor were getting poorer. That fact was downplayed, and the cover story–”share and care”—took center stage.

On every level of society, people were urged to think of themselves as part of a greater group. The individual and his hopes, his unique dreams, his desires and energies, his determination and will power…all these were portrayed as relics of an unworkable and deluded past.

In certain cases, lone pioneers who were innovating in directions that could, in fact, benefit all of humanity, were absorbed into the one body of the collective, heralded as humane…and then dumped on the side of the road with their inventions and forgotten.

In the planned society, no one rises above the mass, except those men who run and operate and propagandize the mass.

In order to affect the illusion of individual success, as a kind of safety valve for the yearnings of millions of people, the cult of celebrity emerged. But even there, extraordinary tales of rise and then precipitous fall, glory and then humiliation, were and are presented as cautionary melodramas.

This could happen to you. You would be exposed. You would suffer the consequences. Let others take the fall. Keep your mind blank. Do nothing unusual. Shorten your attention span. Disable your own mental machinery. Then you’ll never be tempted to stand out from the mass.

The onrush of technocracy gears its wild promises to genetic manipulation, brain-machine interfaces, and other automatic downloads assuring “greater life.” No effort required. Plug in, and ascend to new heights.

Freedom? Independence? Old flickering dreams vicariously viewed on a screen.

Individual greatness, imagination, creative power? A sunken galleon loaded with treasure that, upon closer investigation, was never there to begin with.

The Plan is all that is important. The plan involves universal surveillance, in order to map the lives of billions of people, move by move, in order to design systems of control within which those billions live, day to day.

Exit From the Matrix

But the worst outcome of all is: the individual cannot even conceive of his own life and future in large terms. The individual responds to tighter and control with a shrug, as if to say, “What difference does it make?”

He has bought the collectivist package. His own uniqueness and inner resources are submerged under layers of passive acceptance of the consensus.

And make no mistake about it, this consensus reality, for all its exaltation of the group, is not heraldic in any sense. The propagandized veneer covers a cynical exploitation of every man, woman, and child.

Strapped by an amnesia about his own freedom and what it can truly mean, the individual opts for a place in the collective gloom. He may grumble and complain, but he fits in.

He can’t remember another possibility.

Every enterprise in which he finds himself turns out to be a pale copy of the real thing.

The deep energies and power and desire for freedom remain untapped.

Yet a struggle continues to live. It lives in the hidden places of every individual who wants out, who wants to come back to himself, who wants to stride out on a stage.

Freedom and power again. The shattering of amnesia.

In this stolen world.

A new stage play:

The extinct individual returns.

Petty little hungers and obsessions become great hungers.

Dominoes of the collective begin to fall. The stinking structure collapses, a wing here and a wing there, and the robots open their eyes.

The vast sticky web called “the people” begins to disintegrate in roaring cities and in the mind.

A new instructive message appears on billboards and screens: “normal=crazy.”

      @ Omanuel
      Juice rap news “the new ten commandments ”

      Popey trying to get some new political clothes…he can’t escape that he covered up for pedaphile priests, and that is why the little Nazi Ratsy had to give up the big throne.
      And then there is Francis turning in his own to be tortured and killed in Argentina.

      Why do 70% of Argentinian say they are catholic but fewer than 10 % got to mass.

      They will eat their own young these world elites.

      Naomi has an Inquisitor mind and disposition. She will whip those billion Catholics into climate. It’ll be the new pro-life movement.

    Reblogged this on Centinel2012 and commented:
    Good reading and hard to argue against this being much more true than false.

  2. Steve says:

    Thanks for this.

  3. Laurie says:

    My mother (accidental 10x overdose of meds–nurse misreading the dosage), my best friend’s father (Kaiser sending him home when he was having a heart attack–simply not believing him and he ended up as a quadriplegic and unable to talk–lived about 8 more years) and my first husband (treated successfully for a heart attack with medicines that caused his kidneys to fail, dying a few months later from the latter) are all part of the statistics that you are talking about. It’s hard when it hits that close to home.

    • Kelly Ann says:

      I am so sorry for your losses, Laurie. My mom went to have a biopsy for a tumor. She freaked out at the hospital (because all of her friends have died there) and her heart skipped a beat when she started having a panic attack. They moved her to the cardiac ward, gave her twice the medication she should have and week later she had a heart attack and needed a stent. Now she has to take heart medications which interfere with some of her cancer drugs. Turmeric could probably heal her, but it reacts with her heart medication pills that she has to have for the rest of her life thanks to doctors who didn’t speak to her to understand why she was having the panic attack and didn’t give her the right medications.

      Blessings to you and your family.

  4. Hello Jon,

    Have you looked into the reports of “suicide” of autism / vaccine-connection researcher/activist Dr. Jeffrey Bradstreet of Georgia in the wilderness of North Carolina? And this supposed “suicide” happened only 5 days after FDA raided his office in Georgia. I searched for “Bradstreet” on your website & didn’t find anything.

    I experienced massive opposition when I made a video several years back showing that nuclear bomb footage was faked. The question from trolls was always: “What about Hiroshima?” Then I put together a forum where people could discuss the possibility that nuclear / atomic bombs might have been a hoax. Probably due to its popularity, it attracted enormous opposition from what seemed to be government operatives who eventually succeeded in ruining it to the point I had to take it down.

    • omanuel says:

      There is a lot of false information about nuclear energy. For example, textbooks teach that stars consume hydrogen and neutrons attract other neutrons.

      Both statements are false. All stars generate and discard hydrogen in the stellar winds. Neutron repulsion causes heavy atoms to fission and stars to produce hydrogen by neutron- emission and neutron-decay.

      Have you seen Galen Winsor’s video on the nuclear radiation scam?

  7. Gökmen says:

    This is on fire. So great I’ve read it again and again. Thanks Jon. Really great, thank you Sir.

    Alarms go off. “Reject that fact! Reject it! It’s false! It has to be false! Maintain stability!”
    Jon you described the process of denial so eloquently through this piece.

    This is exactly how It happens each time. That landscape, that Is the real thing needs to be flushed out, needs to be destroyed completely..this IS the real trojan horse, the ultimate trojan horse or a trojan landscape sits there In person’s mind, which he or she completely surrounded (assaulted?) by It.

    I once did try to read agenda-21 documents (and fathom), not just a bad afternoon but to be honest that was a bad month. It didn’t just shake the reality in my subconscious like an earthquake; there were several meteors hitting and tsunami and flood and 5 jazz bands playing at the same time: I found myself being pushed Into and traveling In the sewers and then coming out from a pipe, like the scene In the matrix when neo journeys through the pipeline and system flushes him out..a total state of terror.

    The greatest minds warned humanity against this, how mind works and how consciousness and everything works. They tried to do their best all their lives. such as:

    “People will do anything, no matter how absurd, to avoid facing their own souls.” ― Carl Gustav Jung

    or you have the extremes such as:

    “Throughout human history, as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are, or where we are going in this ocean of chaos, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open-mindedness; chaotic, confused, vulnerability to inform yourself.” ― Timothy Leary

    There are no clues for individual to find any material and learn something, let alone finding balance. It’s all about suppressing, Obsession to organize as you eloquently put. Pumped in mass scale 7/24.

    But In at the end, nobody teaches you how to walk. You start to walk before even you talk. No one tells you to: okay now stand up, there Is this thing called balance and gravity so watch It, okay now put one foot in front of another… Individual=portal to consciousness that no darpa or google can come up with. Yet they believe they can suppress It.

    “Yet a struggle continues to live. It lives in the hidden places of every individual who wants out, who wants to come back to himself, who wants to stride out on a stage.” ― Jon Rappoport

  8. mangrove says:

    Chillingly accurate. Loved the ending. I hope we get there.

  9. Patrick Wagner says:

    “…the collective has no existence and reality but in the actions of individuals. It comes into existence by ideas that move individuals to behave as members of a definite group and goes out of existence when the persuasive power of these ideas subsides.” [Ludwig von Mises]

  10. I have seen that 200,000 deaths-by-doctor before, and It makes me wonder how many lives are saved by the medical profession, lives that would have been lost without medical intervention, and how that number balances off with the malpractice deaths.

    Obviously the mistakes and negligence behind those 200,000 deaths needs to be exposed and reduced, as just one malpractice death is a needless tragedy for the family members and friends of the victim.

    • Theodore says:

      just to add…

      * how many saved by allopathic “trauma specialist” doctors. Car (motorcycle, boats, etc.) accidents. Gun shot wounds. Injured by tools. “If I am in a motorcycle accident, i want to contract with someone who can put together my broken bones. At that immediate moment, i am not ‘in-market’ for a Chinese herbalist.”

      * here is where is gets really interesting… how many saved by allopathic “chronic disease specialist” doctors — thru correctly prescribed drugs (menaing, followed exactly the RX info when administering the drug) VERSES how many saved by clean water and good nutrition including trace minerals and herbs, and, proper exercise and rest, and, midigation of environmental toxins, and no vaccine injections.

  11. Timothy Madden says:

    Twelve years ago, I undertook a project that involved my reading some 22,000 pages from a collection of sixteen antiquarian law dictionaries. From all that mass of material I encountered one particular nominal definition that I have since come to believe has the most probative or explanatory value. In the ensuing twelve years I have not encountered a single broadly-defined socioeconomic or government or private system that does not follow its constructive blueprint. The term defined is: Systematized Delusion


    A “systematized delusion” is one based on a false premise, pursued by a logical process of reasoning to an insane conclusion ; there being one central delusion, around which other aberrations of the mind converge. Taylor v. McClintock, 112 S.W. 405, 412, 87 Ark. 243. (West’s Judicial Words and Phrases (1914 edition)).

    I think this may be a large part of what Jon is referring to. If our broadly-defined socioeconomic subsystems are in fact systematized delusions, then people would expect to become commensurately agitated if and when you even bring attention to their anchor “false premise(s)”.

    • Grim Fandango says:

      And a liberal application of cognitive dissonance on the part of the average citizen allows this impossible scheme to appear to function.

  12. burnersxxx says:

    brilliant Jon, maybe the best of your writing that I’ve ever read. Thank you!
