Are You The Victim Of Mind Control?

Whited Sepulchers

You are if you go to church again today....(or continue to be a RepubiKKON)

~ Ask yourself these simple questions and answer them honestly ~
~ Does your group believe itself to be the only one with all the answers to lifes' questions and 'the truth' about God?

~ Is it elite and exclusive and strongly discourages any outside scrutiny?

~ Does your group discourage reading anything that may disparage them ~ especially any literature written by ex-members? This is an effective way of disarming the members critical facilities.

~ Is great emphasise placed on a group 'norm'? Are all members encouraged to dress the same way, act the same way, talk the same way? This is an effective psychological tool to enforce group conformity. If no one acts or behaves differently it is very easy to maintain the status quo.

~ Do they warn about and discourage friendships and associations outside the group ~ the exception being to recruit new members? An effective form of isolation from encountering ideas that disagrees with the groups.

~ Does the group have a quota system for members concerning gaining new converts, fund raising, distributing literature, etc? If you don't meet the quota are you made to feel not quite good enough?

~ Are you free to question the group leaders, it's aims, ethics, etc. or is this discouraged?

~ Are you supplied with 'black and white' answers? Are there no gray areas because what the group agrees with is right and what it disagrees with is wrong?

~ Is there any room for individual opinions or beliefs, even on minor matters, or does everyone in the group have to believe what the leaders tell them?

~ Is anyone in the group who does not agree with the teachings treated with disdain, suspicion or banishment?

~ Are you made to feel afraid of leaving the group through subtle, and not so suble fear tactics? If you want to leave are you told that dire consequences will ensue because you are leaving 'the light', 'the truth'?

~ Is certain information about the group withheld from potential converts? Are some of the more unusual beliefs and practices not discussed until a new convert is more deeply enmeshed into the groups belief system?

~ Have you disabled your own critical thinking about the group and shelved any doubts you may have had about the groups' aims, teachings, dogma, etc?

~ Coercive Mind Control Tactics ~

Seven techniques of coersive mind control as outlined by Dr. Margaret Singer, professor emeritus at the University of California at Berkeley, the acknowledged leading authority on mind control and cults.

Tactic 1
Increase suggestibility and "soften up" the individual through specific hypnotic or other suggestibility increasing techniques such as extended audio, visual, verbal or tactile fixation drills. Excessive exact repitition of routine activities. Sleep restriction and/or nutritional restrictions.

Tactic 2
Establish control over the person's social environment, time and sources of social support by a system of often excessive rewards and punishments. Social isolation is promoted. Contact with family and friends is abridged, as is contact with persons who do not share group-approved attitudes. Economic and other dependance on the group is fostered.

Tactic 3
Prohibit discomfirming information and non-supporting opinions in group communication. Rules exist about permissible topics to discuss with outsiders. Communication is highly controlled. An "in-group" language" is usually constructed.

Tactic 4
Make the person re-evaluate the most central aspects of their experience of self and prior conduct in negative ways. Efforts are designed to destabilize and undermine the subject's basic consciousness, reality awareness, world view, emotional control and defence mechanisms. The subject is guided to reinterpret their life's history and adopt a new version of causality.

Tactic 5
Create a sense of powerlessness by subjecting the person to intense and frequent actions and situations which undermine their confidence in themselves and their judgement.

Tactic 6
Create strong aversive emotional arousals in the subject by the use of non-physical punishments such as loss of priviledge, humiliation, social isolation, social status changes, intense guilt, anxiety, manipulation and other techniques.

Tactic 7
Intimidate the person with the force of group-sanctioned secular psychological threats. For example. it may be suggested or implied that failure to adopt the approved attitude, belief or consequent behavior will lead to severe punishment or dire consequences such as physical or mental illness, the reappearance of a prior physical illness, drug dependence, economic collapse, social failure, divorce, disintergration, failure to find a mate, etc.
