Arrested development as mind control: the children’s army

Arrested development as mind control: the children’s army

“If a person sees a light at the end of the tunnel, he is looking at freedom, rationality, imagination, responsibility, creative power. Why should he abandon all that for some pathetic substitute?” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

This is a broad and vital subject. Here I am presenting a few of my notes.

“First of all, I have to write about Donald Trump for a few seconds. I don’t care what you think of him. I really don’t. For the purposes of what I’m pointing out here, it doesn’t matter who he is or what he really stands for or what his motives are. What matters is, during the campaign, he spoke words that touched a nerve in many, many young people, and they didn’t like the sensation, to put it mildly. What he said seemed like a reference to individual freedom and responsibility and power—and that had the effect of a silver bullet traveling toward the heart of a vampire. Why? Who are these young people? What has been happening to them?”

“The problem for social engineers: how to impose a top-down system of control on a population. The answer: prepare the young for that system by making it look like endless childhood.”

“College student everywhere are now entitled infants. This is the rapidly expanding trend. As such, they are ripe for any ‘philosophy’ or program that justifies their endless needs. For them, government is more than mommy and daddy. Government is a non-judgmental truck that pulls up and delivers an endless stream of consumer items…”

“Many people on the receiving end of ‘inner-child therapy’ came to believe they contained an actual entity called the inner child. This belief tended to create a regression, in which they sought to find themselves in a happy early past and STAY THERE—then behaving like children.”

“A false dichotomy is set up: a person is either a free, open, playful, blissfully ignorant, demanding child; or a cold, sterile, guarded, rigid adult. As if these were the only two possibilities.”

“When some ‘disturbing’ social event occurs, and you see retreating college students in a quiet room playing with coloring books and clay, and administrators attending to their needs, you are looking at arrested development and regression. This is mind control.”

“A ‘mental-health professional’ (like the late pop guru John Bradshaw) foists on an audience the existence of a subconscious entity called ‘the inner child,’ as if it needs to be brought to the surface and nurtured and even healed of its wounds. Now we are into the realm of mind control. Operant conditioning. Programming. Oprah came upon a gold mine there.”

“In the process of a child growing up, when you see adults arrest his development and try to maintain him in some semblance of an infantile state, where he is full of needs which must be met constantly, you are looking at a serious problem. Later in life, feeling hemmed in with nowhere to go, he may decide his only options are apathy or violence.”

“But the arrested-development concept doesn’t need misguided parents. People can pick up, straight out of the culture, clues which suggest to them that the way out of their problems is to regress. Act like an entitled child.”

“Sinking into the melodrama, they become self-styled victims.”

“And this is the objective of the overall psychological operation. To remake the society into helpless victims.”

“Such entitled self-styled victims whine and demand ‘everything for free.’ This is the upper limit of their intellectual prowess.”

“How do you make such victims realize they are responsible for the choices they are taking, when the core of those choices is the abandonment of all responsibility? You are looking at social engineering par excellence.”

“Sooner or later, the arrested-development generations of children become psychologically and spiritually exhausted. They need an infusion of energy. So they look to the dark side. They want perverse stimulation. They want rebellion without a goal. They want destruction. There is no rationale behind any of this, no mind, no coherent thought. There is a protest scheduled? They show up, ready to break something, smash it. All they need is an agent (who is paid for and planted) to throw the first stone.”

“Their leaders who magically show up out of nowhere (paid for) take control in meetings and even ‘conferences.’ These leaders are the hard cases. The arrested-development children are the foot soldiers, the know-nothings, the fodder. They can be sacrificed for the cause. Behind all this is the psychological program that initiated the regression backwards into an infantile state.”

The Matrix Revealed

“This is the Trojan Horse that has been placed in the middle of the culture. Thomas Jefferson envisioned public education as the means for enlightening young children about what it means to be a citizen in a Republic, because no such experiment in government and freedom had ever been tried before on such a broad scale. Using his model, but reversing the substance of education, elite foundations substituted a teaching program of socialism and collectivism. The next step, which we are witnessing now, involves shrinking that program down to the inculcation of basic victimhood, with bare flickers of ideas and slogans and vapid memes.”

“The teenage-young-adult infant has needs. He will try to destroy what is around him until his needs are satisfied. Satisfied for the moment.”

“If the day ever comes when he wants to break out of this endless cycle, he can look at freedom, responsibility, imagination, creative power. He can pull at the tag-end of any of these, and he will eventually arrive at a vast unknown (to him) territory. A new world, a new galaxy. Beyond programming.”

    This is the state of higher education now. It bears out what you say, with details. (it’s a bit long!)

    • Cynthia says:

      Thanks for the link. Excellent article. I already see this in high school students-my own, I am not a teacher. Disturbing indeed.

        Cynthia, its not too late to home school. It is much easier than anyone thinks. We have a grave responsibility as parents to protect and nurture our children and the human race as a species can not afford to fail in this sacred responsibility.
        The public fool system is poison and it is spreading and we all must do whatever it takes to stop it.

        If you study what happened in China, under Mao, he used these same techniques so the youth destroyed their culture and their elders. Its an oppressive communist regime that is still harming people. We are seeing the same thing beginning here.

        This is their goal in America and we can not in good conscience be a part of this by giving our children to the evil system.

        Our children really are our greatest treasure and the future, despite many making this a cliche’. Society has failed our children and we are seeing the result of this. If we don’t take a stand now, there will be no future worth living for.

        A parent has the greatest power and many don’t realize this. We change the world for good or bad based on how we choose to raise our children. Here is a good article about this.

        We must be strong and look within in our hearts on what to do, thankfully there are many organizations and individuals who are returning to natural parenting. The love we have for our children is enough to guide us to create an even better world.

  2. Loretta says:

    Bravo!! Site of this is everywhere. The modern day parent “doesn’t know what happened”. Wow, here it is in a nut shell.

  3. From Québec says:

    “In addition to an education, kids were supposed to graduate with some basic values, self-discipline, and life skills. A little common sense wouldn’t hurt either. Our schools don’t teach that anymore. instead we’re more concerned about kids having self-esteem and feeling good about themselves than we are about preparing them for real life. The politically correct crowd has taken over our schools, and as a result we are failing our children.”
    ― Donald J. Trump

  4. Rochelle says:

    Great article. I couldn’t agree more. Thank you.

  5. Freddie says:

    In Alice Miller’s book, For your own good, she highlights how Hitler came to power in part because his peers had also been subjected to a child-rearing practice that today would be considered child-abuse.

    • Terri says:

      I absolutely love Alice Miller, she has given us so much good information about the harm modern parenting has done. Unfortunately, child rearing hasn’t changed much since the 40’s and she wrote many books and articles to educate people about the harm spanking and punishment cause to our children.

  6. Radio Far Side says:

    Excellent summary of a vast and multi-pronged problem. The problem comes when the individual wants to break free. These children have been taught to avoid books and revile anything penned by old white men. Thus, when their minds are open to the possibility of something else, every resource they have to guide them puts them deeper into the regressed state. Furthermore, their vocabulary is grossly insufficient to understand the works of Bacon, Descarte and Locke, much less Jefferson, et al. Their reasoning capacities are severely impaired by a lack of exposure to the Trivium. The loop is quickly closing into a self-referential wasteland where original thought and personal responsibility cannot exist. Once the loop has closed, it will likely be centuries, if not millennia, before a sufficient number of people recreate the conditions that led to the Enlightenment.

  7. Joy says:

    Daily, I can see this in their eyes and in their overheard conversations, and it is more than challenging for me to not give up on them…and thus our world…entirely. Instead, I am reclaiming my imagination and creative powers as an individual, trusting that I will in some way be spreading around the string ends you mention that they might seemingly stumble upon and give a tug out of curiosity. Surely this is more powerful than the seeming onslaught of the blank-eyed children’s army and their sleeping teachers!

  8. rutheer says:

    I’m new to Jon Rappoport but I agree with this article. I have been watching what I call the Sameness Agenda for years, and his thoughts give some substance to what I have personally observed.

  9. brian niziol says:

    None of this programing has a snowballs chance in hell of working if parents starting looking after their families as opposed to working themselves into an early grave for that new 60 inch TV. If we were builders as opposed to consumers our children would reap the benefits. If you want to know just why your kids are falling into this trap just look in the mirror.

    • Terri says:

      I agree Brian. This slippery slope of communism victimhood and collectivism has been going on for a while now. Pink Floyd did the Wall about this very thing. Many parents infanticize their children to remain feeling powerful in a sick subversive relationship since most everyone is dysfunctional, having been brought up to be attachment disordered from lack of true nurturing and attachment parenting.

      Humans have lost the ability to properly parent, for like other primates, we learn from our parents how to nurture and raise our offspring, and though our natural instincts are there, they are shut down by the medical establishment and other bullies. These children and most adults are afraid of intimacy for they never had it and are seeking fulfillment (in a negative way) for something they have no idea consciously they were deprived of.

      There is a growing movement to return to attachment parenting and this will be the real revolution that will allow humankind to redeem themselves and restore our beautiful world to a sacred peaceful happy loving world again.

      • Mary says:

        I respectfully disagree about attachment parenting being redemptive. In my experience AP breeds dreadful children who think the world owes them everything and they owe the world nothing. The stage where the child funtionally realizes they are separate from their mother is delayed for years. Further it seems to be only for the gratification of the parents, having nothing to do with the real life welfare and future healthy independence of the child. AP will bring us a veritible snowstorm of special snowflakes.

    Reblogged this on Centinel2012 and commented:
    Good analysis and worth reading.

    Once you have been in this place of freedom Jon talks about, nothing can ever take it away. This is what the state and all the despots fear, for they know they have no power that is real. This is why, the chanceller in V for Vendetta said, we must remind them why they need us.
    Its much more powerful to watch.

  12. Terri says:

    I would add that the inner child or unconscious that is addressed in ho’oponopono which is a very powerful healing and meditation tool is not the same as some new agey crap being taught.
    Dr Hew Lin is a doctor who has been a conduit for miracles by using these ancient hawaiian kahuna practice. ho’oponopono is about personal responsibility and being aware and present.

    Here is part 1 of the complete seminar which goes into great detail (part 2-4 will follow )

    here is the short part of this seminar which is just the meditation if you have already seen the class.

  13. Paul says:

    Many college professors I know have admitted that their home-schooled students are the best.

    Excellent to perfect attendance, polite, engaged in both lecture & lab, skilled readers & writers, offer interesting questions.


    Bright eyed.
