The universal Rebel and the psy-op to neuter him

The universal rebel and the psy-op to neuter him

by Jon Rappoport

November 14, 2017

If you want to track a civilization as it collapses, watch what happens to the concept of the rebel.

From the 1960s onward—starting with Lee Oswald and the assassination of JFK—the whole idea of “the rebel” with power has been sequentially updated and repackaged. This is intentional.

The objective is to equate “rebel” with a whole host of qualities—e.g., runaway self-serving paranoia; random destruction; out-of-control drug use; generalized hatred; the commission of crimes…

On a lesser, “commercialized” level, the new rebel can define himself by merely showing up at a concert to scream and drink heavily and break something, having already dressed to make a dissident fashion statement. He can take an afternoon off from college classes and have his arms tattooed. All the while, of course, he functions as an avid consumer of mainstream corporate products.

You even have people who, considering themselves rebels of the first order, support a government that spies on its people 24/7, launches military attacks all over the world, and now funds a Manhattan Project to map every move of the 100 billion neurons of the brain, for the ultimate purpose of controlling it.

Even going back as far as the 1950s, the so-called decade of conformity, psyops professionals sculpted notions of The Rebel: He was the person who didn’t want to take part in the emerging bland corporate culture.

He was imagined and presented as troubled, morose; a wobbly unfocused JD Salinger Holden Caulfield, or a beatnik, a Madison Avenue caricature of somebody who opposed Madison Avenue.

In other words, the people who were shaping the consumer culture were creating the image of the rebel as a cartoon figure who just didn’t want to buy into “the good life.”

Time Magazine ran a cover story on the beatniks, and characterized them as a disaffected trend. Marlon Brando, heading up a bunch of moronic motorcycle riders, invaded a town of pleasant clueless citizens and took it over, wreaking destruction. The 1953 movie was The Wild One. James Dean, who had the same trouble Brando did in articulating a complete sentence, was “the rebel without a cause” in the “iconic film” of the same name. He raced cars toward cliffs because his father couldn’t understand him.

These were all puff pieces designed to make rebels look ridiculous, and they worked. They also functioned to transmit the idea to young people that being a rebel should be a showbiz affectation. That worked, too.

Then the late 1960s arrived. Flower children rebels, in part invented by the major media, would surely take over the world and dethrone fascist authority with rainbows. San Francisco was the epicenter. But Haight-Ashbury, where the flowers and the weed were magically growing out of the sidewalks, turned into a speed, acid, and heroin nightmare, a playground for psychopaths to cash in and steal and destroy lives. The CIA, of course, gave the LSD culture a major push.

For all that the anti-war movement eventually accomplished in ending the Vietnam war-crime, in the aftermath many of those college students who had been in the streets—once the fear of being drafted was gone—scurried into counselors’ offices to see where they might fit into the job market after graduation. The military industrial complex took its profits and moved on, undeterred.

The idea of the rebel was gone. It later resurfaced as The Cocaine Dealer, the archangel of the 1980s.

And so forth and so on. All these incarnations of The Rebel were artificially created and sustained as psyops. At bottom, the idea was to discredit the Individual, in favor of The Group.

Now, in our collectivist society of 2017, The Group, as a rapidly expanding victim class, is the government’s number one project. It’s a straight con. “We’re here to make you worse off while we lift you up.”

In the psyop to demean, distort, and squash the rebel, there is a single obvious common denominator: the establishment media are doing the defining; they are the ones who are setting the parameters and making the descriptions; they are the ones who build the cartoons; looking down their noses, pretending to a degree of sympathy, they paint one unflattering picture after another of what the rebel is and does and says; they have co-opted the whole game.

These days, the ultimate rebels, the media would have you believe, are “gun-toting racist bitter clingers who have religion.” Another attempt to shape a distorted unflattering portrait

You can take a whole host of political films and television series of the past 50 years, and look at them for signs of the Rebel: Seven Days in May, Advise and Consent, The Candidate, The Seduction of Joe Tynan, Dave, Primary Colors, The Contender, Good Night and Good Luck, The American President, West Wing, Scandal, The Newsroom…

Good acting, bad acting, drama, message—at the end you’re looking for the core. What do the rebel heroes really stand for? What are their principles? It’s all bland. It’s vague. It has the posturing of importance, but little else.

As I was finishing this piece, a friend wrote with a quote attributed to Robert Anton Wilson: “The universe is a war between reality programmers.”

This is exactly where the real rebel enters the scene. He’s not trying to program people. Freedom means cutting loose from programming.

The Rebel doesn’t go to the market and choose which reality program he wants. They’re all used up as soon as they come out of the package.

Albert Camus once wrote: “The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience. It would be easy, however, to destroy that good conscience by shouting to them: if you want the happiness of the people, let them speak out and tell what kind of happiness they want and what kind they don’t want! But, in truth, the very ones who make use of such alibis know they are lies; they leave to their intellectuals on duty the chore of believing in them and of proving that religion, patriotism, and justice need for their survival the sacrifice of freedom.”

“THIS or THAT” is the history of Earth: choose reality program A or B. The choice was always a con.

We’re well into a time period when the experts and scientific authorities are settling on the human being as a biological machine that can only respond to programming. That’s their view and their default position.

It’s sheer madness, of course, but what else do you expect? We’re in an intense technological age, and people are obsessed with making things run smoother. They treat their precious little algorithms for control like the Crown Jewels. They’re terribly enthusiastic about the problem they’re solving, and that problem is us.

We’re the wild cards, a fact which they take to be result of our improper and incomplete conditioning. They aim to fix that.

“Why not stop diddling around and just make the whole thing over? Why not reshape humans?”

Having decided that, the battle begins between competing programmers of the mind. Which program for humans is better?

The rebel is against all such programming, no matter how “good and right” it sounds. “Good” and “right” are the traps.

The ultimate rebellion is against programming, whatever it looks like, wherever it occurs.

Programming is someone else’s idea of who and what you should be.

It is never your idea.

Your idea is where the power is.

There are some people who hear the word CREATE and wake up, as if a new flashing music has begun.

This lone word makes them see something majestic and untamed and astonishing.

They feel the sound of a Niagara approaching.

They suddenly know why they are alive.

Most people don’t want to travel to that grand arena because they have been trained like pets by some sector of this society to be good little girls and boys.

The truth is, if people want to live the creative existence, they have to be willing to destroy—and the main thing that awaits their destruction is their own illusions and their commitment to the World of Nice where doily power is the only power. Where that tired phrase, “the approval of others,” is the guiding precept and the stick of fear.

The creative life isn’t about little changes done in little penguin steps. It’s about putting your arms and your mind around Deep, Big, and Wide Desire. It’s about making that Desire come to life.

99% of the world has been trained like rats to adore systems. Give them a system and they’re ready to cuddle up and take it all in. If they have questions, or if they want to argue, it’s about how to tweak the system to make it a little better. And with every move they make, they put another blanket over the Fire Within.

Maybe you once saw something truly free that didn’t care about consequences, and it blew you away and turned on your soul’s electricity for an hour.

Maybe you’re sick and tired of bowing and scraping before a pedestal of nonsense.

CREATE is a word that should be oceanic. It should shake and blow apart the pillars of the smug boredom of the soul.

CREATE is about what the individual does when he is on fire and doesn’t care about concealing it. It’s about what the individual invents when he has thrown off the false front that is slowly strangling him.

CREATE is about the end of mindless postponement. It’s about what happens when you burn up the pretty and petty little obsessions. It’s about emerging from the empty suit and empty machine of society that goes around and around and sucks away the vital bloodstream.

People come to the brink, and then say, “I’m waiting for orders. I’m looking for a sign. I want the signal that it’s okay to proceed.”

People pretend they don’t know anything about imagination, about how “it operates” (as if it were a machine), about what it can do, about where it can go, about how it can take them into new territory. They feign ignorance.

“I want to stay the same, and I’ll do anything to maintain that.”

It’s a test of loyalty. Do you want to remain faithful to an idea that is just a small piece of what you can be, or do you want to take the greater adventure?

The propaganda machines of society relentlessly turn out images and messages that ultimately say: YOU MUST BELONG TO THE GROUP.

The formula is simple. Imagination transcends the status quo. Therefore, belong to the group and avoid the possibility of transformation.

    Another lightening bolt of words, Jon! Thank you. Your blogs have become a highlight for me and I plan to order Exit this winter.

    Perfect!! The sad part of it is what you said… most people don’t want to travel to that grand arena. I see this all around…

    Thanks Jon, for another unraveling and unmasking of where we are and why we are there! It has become too easy to settle for less and relax into mediocrity these days.

  5. Black Sheep says:

    The seeming security of the flock is more comforting than the independence of the individual until the lambs are sent to slaughter.

    A rebel? I got my Guy Fawkes mask at Hot Topic and Bernie buttplug at Etsy. I just love Hillary because she is a rebel too. I hate Trumphitler because he is KGB but my Cliché Guevara poster looks sporty next to my MacBook.
    I will take it over to Starbucks and post up from my AT&T account about how much I hate capitalist pig corporations. Forward! The Great Leap Forward.
    War with Russia will be like OMG like so kewl. Uhh…huh…huh…huh…DERP.

  8. IMNAHA says:

    It begins when a person identify themself as “human” and as a physical body. The controllers of this dimension rely on this false perception, constantly drumming on the idea of human frailty and mortality after all “I’m just a human”. This is the NUMBER ONE BELIEF SYSTEM on this planet though most people don’t perceive it as a belief. “I’m just human” is a disempowering meme that we cling to, in our amnesia.

  9. Noelle says:

    Jon, I can almost see the fire coming off your fingers as you typed this one! I am sharing it on my FB for those who may resonate. I think many people are truly waking up…we just can’t see it in this moment. More moments are coming….

  10. From Quebec says:

    I think that Trump is a perfect example of someone who we could call a rebel. All of is life he tried to do the impossible and he always found a way. He did it his own way and he always got to where he wanted to be.

    You must listen to this song, it is cute and funny A good parody:

    Off Topic Alert-Another MK Ultra patsy to destroy the 2nd amendment as a man in the glorious people’s republik of Kalifornia shot up a kindergarten in rural Red Bluff.
    4 adults were killed. Look for more and more psyops of this type until we have a gun ban like Australia.

      Just saw a young guy rehearsing his lines for the camera on u tube for this new “event”. One would have to be really un awake not to see through these….almost every week now. Selling f e a r. False evidence appearing real…..

    Jon, I have little bit different way of seeing it all. We live in cooperative societies where people are dependent upon each other, and yet there is not direct obvious connection to what someone does on one side of the city or country and the other person on the other side. We are controlled by signals in that world. Everyone eats at nearly the same time, and clocks in and out at the same time. A repetitive routine that causes boredom and a shut down of the intellect due to sheer boredom. This is the case with schools as well, routine and lack of stimulation causes boredom and shut down of the mind.
    A hypnotist does the same thing. He talks in a low key voice that is rather dull and he asks you to relax and his voice will help you sink into a state where your intellect slowly gets bored and starts shutting down, which is the intended effect. That leave you all alone with the sub-conscious instinct, that never sleeps but also lacks critical thinking ability. Then the hypnotist instructs the sub conscious to make the mind sleep, but the subconscious awake, always. that is the way it is designed.

    The boring monotonous routine of our lives and most decisions take from us in our work, and we are put into sort of assembly line job routines and our minds just sort of turn off and nearly go to sleep. They run in neutral.

    On the other hand, life on a farm often brings things that interrupt routines. A birth of an animal, break down of equipment, weather, seasons and more. And if your kids are working side you or your wife, you get to talk to them. No talking allowed at work or at school. just work or sit like zombies while boring teach puts you to sleep. By the way, that is why they keep boring teachers around.

    Our life style is part of our prison. It works against the mind. Humans need mental stimulation and excitement in their lives. I note that children love play time. it is a good time for talking and teaching. or a little play and a little learning. you can teach far more to an alert mind coming down off of excitement than you can with bored drowsy minds. and if what you bring up is interesting, you will attract curiosity and a desire to know more.

    The battle, to me, is not so much of the individual or rebel, as it is of breaking up boring stifling routines, which our social engineers have made work quite well at putting us to sleep. We were best served by a life that is not totally predictable and causes a variance in routine. Our day to day lives are under our control when on our own farm, self sustaining and perpetuating. but we got away from that and we are paying the price for it. We were not meant to be cattle. We were meant to be individuals who could also function among peers in a community for we have a natural herding instinct to help us along, without crippling us. For what it is worth.

      Thanks truth1, that was really good to read this morning!

      I find people regularly ask how you’re doing — which is immediately followed up with “are you busy?” Occasionally responding “no” is quite an unsettling (dare I say ‘rebellious’) act… and you can almost watch the struggle to make sense of the possibility of slipping the knots of daily routine and mind-neutering procedure.

      It’s quite an interesting little social experiment — so suffocated has our inherent need for autonomy and creativity in our own lives become.

      • Sunshine2 says:

        I’ve noticed that too Tony. If you tell anyone you’re not busy, they look at you like you grew a second head!

      • truth1 says:

        In general, you are referring to a far more sophisticated form of hypnosis, such as a CIA programmer might use. Its hardly practical when just trying to put people into a dulled unresponsive state of mind that allows better access to the subconscious that gets programmed/conditioned by the routine drudgery. You were 100 % accurate, but you left out the context and who was being targeted. But regardless, I hope many give attention to what you wrote and look more into mind programming and the like. They need to wake up and too many are caught in that dull state that tends to reinforce itself.

      • truth1 says:

        Tony, you know I find myself often in that auto-pilot zone. going thru the turn pike, I end up responding before the attendant speaks. I am conditioned and often am lead by the circumstance. Its better when I am in a position I am not normally in, then I will be more awake. We let our environment swallow us up. The farm was a way better situation. Too easy to herd a crowd in the city. That is a big part of the problem. Thanks for the compliment.

        Assembly line manufacturing really is cruel and unusual punishment. Our spirits/intellect are under a full blown attack 24/7.

    • O'Farrell says:

      I want to add more info to your description of hypnosis and hypnotic states of mind. First of all, hypnosis isn’t always a calming, meditative state – nor does the hypnotist always use a slow, relaxing induction. The type of induction depends upon 1) what the person needs to slip into the hypnotic state, and 2) what the hypnotic session is for. Hypnosis simply means going into alpha and theta brain waves. Also called the Subconcious Mind – where the issues lie, where the programming is, and where new programming can be implemented. An induction into hypnosis can be gentle but another type of induction is louder or even shocking. Hypnosis = “fight or flight mchanism” (which includes “lay down and play dead.”) The hypnotic induction can trigger this mechanism in humans. Humans can walk around in the state of fight or flight – and can appear to be trancelike. Fight or flight is triggerd by stress, which includes unexpected violence (terrorist attacks and violent events.) The the continuous problems in the world can cause some people to walk around in hypnotic trances…and since hypnosis means walking around with your Subconscious Mind open to receive cultural programming/conditioning. Oh yeah, watcing movement on screens (TV, Cinema) induces hypnosis. Manipulating the masses is easy in our modern world.

    We’ll need all the rebels we can get for the global gulag slavestate that is coming. The Great Leap Forward 2.0 led by the red guards will come to America by 2022.
    The war with Russia will be in an attempt to fulfill the depopulation goals of the Georgia Guidestones.
    America is the designated loser of WWIII so the global slavestate can be ushered in as the lumpen proles scream for order out of chaos.
    America will be balkanized and taken over by its enemies in a few short hours as marshmallow soft snowflakes cry when their selfie sticks are broken and the sail fawns (cellphones) don’t work.
    The new managers will laugh at quaint notions of equality and fluid genders as they put useless idiots against the wall.
