Mind Control

It is all about Mind Control. Despite what the Youtube  user TheRedPillNews seems to imply here this,, stuff is already in use in America against US citizens every day. It is literally everywhere. HDTV, Radio, CD‘s, Movie DVD‘s, Cell phones HAARP and on and on.  Right now it is mostly about conditioning us to get used to weird behavioral and mood changes, ringing in the ears, dizziness etc. If you complain they will try to put a psychiatric label on you and drug you or they will explain away the symptoms as “normal signs of aging etc.

Watch and learn!

How couples recover after an argument stems from their infant relationships

When studying relationships, psychological scientists have often focused on how couples fight. But how they recover from a fight is important, too. According to a new study published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, couples’ abilities to bounce back from conflict may depend on what both partners were like as infants.

Researchers at the University of Minnesota have been following a cohort of people since before they were born, in the mid-1970s. When the subjects were about 20 years old, they visited the lab with their romantic partners for testing. This included a conflict discussion, when they were asked to talk about an issue they disagreed on, followed by a “cool-down” period, when the couples spent a few minutes talking about something they saw eye to eye about.

Although the cool-down period was included just to make sure the researchers weren’t sending the couples away angry, Jessica E. Salvatore, a Ph.D. student at the University of Minnesota, noticed some interesting things about the couples’ communication styles during this recovery time. “As part of another project where we looked at how couples fight, I would often catch a few minutes of this cool-down period,” she says. Salvatore noticed that some couples had intense conflicts, but made a perfectly clean transition to chatting about something they agreed on. In other couples, one or both partners seemed “stuck” on the conflict discussion and couldn’t move on.

With Sally I-Chun Kuo, Ryan D. Steele, Jeffry A. Simpson, and W. Andrew Collins, all from the University of Minnesota, Salvatore embarked on a closer look at what happens after a conflict supposedly ends. By looking back at observations of the participants and their caregivers from the 1970s, when they were between 12 and 18 months old, the researchers discovered a link between the couples’ conflict recovery behaviors and the quality of their attachment relationship with their caregivers. People who were more securely attached to their caregivers as infants were better at recovering from conflict 20 years later. This means that if your caregiver is better at regulating your negative emotions as an infant, you tend to do a better job of regulating your own negative emotions in the moments following a conflict as an adult.

The researchers also found that there is hope for people who were insecurely attached as infants. “We found that people who were insecurely attached as infants but whose adult romantic partners recover well from conflict are likely to stay together,” remarked Salvatore. “If one person can lead this process of recovering from conflict, it may buffer the other person and the relationship.” The health of a relationship can be salvaged if one person can quickly disengage from conflict and avoid dwelling on negative thoughts and emotions.

This is some of the first evidence that romantic partners play an important role in buffering the potential harmful effects from poor experiences earlier in life. “That, to us, was the most exciting finding,” Salvatore says. “There’s something about the important people later in our lives that changes the consequences of what happened earlier.”

The Power of Nightmares – The Rise of the Politics of Fear

Broadcast 11/03/04 BBC 2
Written and produced by Adam Curtis

In the past our politicians offered us dreams of a better world. Now they promise to protect us from nightmares.

The most frightening of these is the threat of an international terror network. But just as the dreams were not true, neither are these nightmares.

Here is what one reviewer says about”The Power of Nightmares“:

Not Available in the US
This film is still copyrighted and Curtis Adams gave permission to freely distribute the film in the US. No network would show this series in the US and no distributor would touch it in the US.
This was a highly acclaimed series initially produced by BBC. As could be expected, the series received criticism, but it was well documented and facts are … well, facts. They have stood the test of time.
That’s disturbing US media doesn’t have more investment in reporting truth. The Power of Nightmares has been shown the world over. At least 5 times in Canada. More than that in UK and Western Europe. And many times in Australia, NZ, throughout South America
It would be difficult to find someone that hasn’t seen this film anywhere but in the US and yet, the bulk of the film deals with US history.
Curtis does an admirable job refraining from making opinions and sticks to facts that he had backed up on his website. He does have a bias and he gives in to making comments in the final episode for the last 15 minutes. I can see where not everyone would agree.
What this film does is present a historical timeline from the beginning of the neo conservative movement and the taliban. They share some of the same sources in the beginning (50’s). That’s why I say it’s fact based. It’s verifiable history.
There are many debates, that when put into context, are simplified. At least that’s what this film did for me. It cut through so much rhetoric and clutter that’s through out such that it was hard to know who was telling the truth. Not anymore. I did look to blow holes in some of what’s reported and it doesn’t work. Facts are facts.
This film simplifies life. It’s a must-see for everyone in the US. It should be a crime this series wasn’t distributed here, not even on DVD..
