Manipulation and Programing, The Way of Humanity
-by Henry Noël
The time has come for us to understand that we are being manipulated and programed, and we have been receiving this manipulation and programing all our lives. It is through this manipulation and programing that we perceive, formulate our opinions, judge and function in this world. The subtleness with which this manipulation and programing is happening makes us blind to it. Not recognizing it means we must make a concerted effort to identify it and stop kidding ourselves that this manipulation and programing is not happening to us.
I am going to provide you a couple of examples of how we are being manipulated and programed. You can say this is all bullshit, go on your merry way, continue with your cognitive dissonance, and live in your illusionary world. Or you can open your eyes and wake up, stop accepting the manipulation and programing, change yourself, become wakened, and change the world within you and around you.
My first example is how we see animals. What is the difference between a cow and a dog; a pig and a cat; or a chicken and a parrot? The first thing that comes to mind is that we see dogs, cats and parrots as pets, but we see cows, pigs, and chickens as food. Why? Because we have been manipulated and programed into believing this (our upbringing). Would you kill your dog, cat or parrot for food? No, of course not, because we have been manipulated and programed into seeing them as pets. But you would kill a cow, pig or chicken because we have been manipulated and programed into seeing them as food. Now you might not personally do the killing only because you see it as disgusting or distasteful, but you are killing the cow, pig and chicken every time you buy one at the supermarket, so there is no innocence or ignorance to hide behind. Your purchase is why these animals are killed. In fact, each year in the United States alone, 36 million cows and/or calves, 117 million pigs and 9 billion chickens are killed so you can eat.
What is the difference between a cow and a dog; a pig and a cat; or a chicken and a parrot? Nothing. They are all animals, yet we have been manipulated and programed into believing it is okay to kill one kind of animal (food) and not okay to kill another (pet). An example of how entrenched this belief is, we will send a person to jail for killing a dog because we define it as an act of “cruelty to animals,” but we all go to the store and by beef, pork and chicken and no one goes to jail for “cruelty to animals.” If someone crams a bunch of dogs into a filthy kennel we file charges against them for “cruelty to animals” and “animal endangerment” as it is deplorable, horrible and inhumane to treat a dog (pet) that way. But I guess it isn’t deplorable, horrible and inhumane to treat pigs and chickens this way. Pigs and chickens are being crammed into “farms” by the thousands where they are in constant contact with each other, can’t lie down, and living in filth, disease and the remains of the dead. Because the animals are classified as food, the people raising them are rarely charged with crimes of “cruelty to animals” or “animal endangerment.” Why? Because they are food and not pets. We give no thanks and have no feelings of being sorry for the conditions these animals live in. Nothing. We don’t feel anything except that “this better be a tender piece of meat for what I paid for it.” And we call ourselves civilized. Why do we have organizations that are set up to “prevent cruelty to animals” when most “food” animals are cruelly treated? Perhaps these organizations’ slogan should be “prevent cruelty to some animals (pets) and other animals we just don’t give a shit about.”
Do you get the idea on any of this? Does any of this make sense? Because of manipulation and programing, we treat animals differently. Our culture (manipulation and programing) has given us acceptances and/or allowances, and/or justifications so we can treat animals differently. It is okay to treat “food” animals like crap, but “pets” are special. So, when a cow is treated as a pet and a dog is treated as food, as it is in some cultures, why do we get upset? Manipulation and programing, that’s why. Pets are special because of our being manipulated and programed. Food animals are not special because of our being manipulated and programed. So, in a society of “civilized people,” why isn’t the killing of all animals illegal and immoral? Because we have been manipulated and programed into believing killing is acceptable for some animals but not for others. An animal is an animal, there should be no difference.
My second example is, so what about humans? Let’s compare humans. What is the difference between being white, black, brown, red, or yellow? What is the difference between being Jewish, Catholic, Muslim, Hindu, or Buddhist? What is the difference between being Nigerian, Columbian, British, Native American, Polish or Australian? What is the difference between male, female, or hermaphrodite? What is the difference between heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual? Manipulation and programing creates the difference and you believe it. We have been manipulated and programed into believing that we are different, just like we have been manipulated and programed into thinking animals are different. There is no difference between any of us except that which you have been taught and believe because of the manipulation and programing you have undergone.
What if, and to make a point, we manipulated and programed everyone into believing that all white humans are food? You could hunt white humans on hunting day or raise them for hunting clubs. Then it would be acceptable to raise white humans in deplorable conditions, slaughter them with no mercy or regard, and feed them to the other humans. In this way, breeding them and killing them as food would be acceptable. But if you are one of the white humans, you might have different opinions about that. Or, perhaps if you are Catholic, we establish Catholic hunting day, or we could breed Catholics and make it acceptable to kill them as food.
What I am trying to get you all to see is humans are humans. Not based on color or religion or nationality, we are all humans and it is the manipulation and programing of us that allows us to see ourselves as different. Religions, politics and a myriad of other contrived ideas have been created to foster this belief we are all different, when the fact is we are all humans. So long as you are accepting of this manipulation and programing that we are different, then we don’t stand a chance of ever coming together as a species. So long as you are willing to accept the manipulators and programmer’s beliefs as your own, you will forever be locked in this illusion.
We have been manipulated and programed into believing that the atrocities we do to each other is acceptable so long as it is in the name of Religion (or God), democracy, or righteousness. Well, it isn’t okay no matter what idea you use to justify it. You must learn that Religion, democracy and righteousness are just ideas. And so long as you continue to believe these ideas are more important than common sense, you are the problem.
You can deny you fall into this category of being manipulated or programed. You can deny you don’t see yourself as different from other humans. You can deny the blame for the state of this world, but you are lying to yourselves. We are all being manipulated and programed and have been manipulated and programed our entire lives. The fact that any of us can be manipulated or programed into hating one another for some contrived idea is a travesty. The fact that we are unable to rise above what the manipulators want us to believe as right or wrong is a travesty. The fact that we are unable to see that we have been manipulated and programed is a travesty. The fact that we are unable to see this manipulation and programing as a travesty is a travesty. This is what’s wrong with us, and this world.
We happily go to war because someone has a different ideology (idea) than we do or because a government or religious leader tells us to. We happily go to war because someone has a different belief system (idea) than we do or because a government or religious leader tells us to. We happily go to war because of some made up threat (idea) that a government or religious leader tells us exists. When are you going to wake up and see you are being manipulated and programed? We proudly wear patriotic clothes touting our superiority and military strength. We proudly display flags to show support of our governments’ or religious leaders’ ineptitude and stupidity. We proudly voice our opinion and show support for our political party or religious faction. When will you learn that it is all manipulation and programing. None of it matters. We have been manipulated and programed into believing that patriotism, religion and pride are important. None of it is important. It is all used against us, so we can justify to ourselves it’s okay to kill one another. Food or pet?
I have always said that if you wanted to see wars end it would take the women of the world to stand up in unity and tell this male run mess of a world to go fuck yourselves and just say no. No, you are not taking my children for your stupid wars. No, you are not going to use my children for your personal gain. No, you are not using my children to add to your death totals. It must be the women standing up to governments and religious leaders because men have proven they can’t. They won’t because they are the problem. Their ego’s requiring them to obey, conform, and be the first to join the crowd. This ego gets in the way of their common sense. Men have proven they are not capable of leading, but they are quite capable of following and follow they do. The problem with this scenario is women are now lowering themselves to be just like men. This is a shame and a product of manipulation and programing.
While we have spent all this energy trying to decide which animals to kill for food and which animals to protect as pets, we have lost sight of the fact that we are the animals being slaughtered. We are so manipulated and programed that we are willing to slaughter ourselves and each other. And, we never stop to realize that it’s for someone else’s sport. Cows don’t kill cows, zebras don’t kill zebras, elephants don’t kill elephants, but humans kill humans. And we call ourselves civilized, humane, and intelligent. It is not until we stop allowing this manipulation and programing will we become civilized. It is not until we stop allowing this manipulation and programing will we become humane. It is not until we stop allowing this manipulation and programing will we become intelligent.
You can’t fix a problem you don’t believe exists. You complain about the world and all the problems, but you can’t see that the problems exist because of the manipulation and programing you have undergone. You complain about political parties, but you can’t see that your pride for your political party exists because of the manipulation and programing you have been taught and undergone. All our beliefs have been manipulated and programed into us. Not until we can accept this, will we be able to change. For those of you that see no need to change, are happy with all the conflict, are happy causing the conflict, then welcome to your reality. For those seeking a better world and who are looking to change, welcome to the illusion. Only by accepting this as an illusion can we create a new reality.
What I am trying to get you all to understand is true love is the key that unlocks the doors to the infinite. True love is the answer to the ills of the world. True love is the answer to our manipulation and programing. True love is what we must understand. True love is not just an emotion. It is a dimension, a dimension we must learn exists, as true love is what transcends time and space. To learn and experience true love, we must unlearn all we have learned (the manipulation and programing) for what we have learned prevents us from loving truly, or unconditionally. When true love fails, we fail. When true love is removed from our existence, then we fail. We are only as strong as our true love, and true love takes time to understand. We can take the quick path to enlightenment but that leads to disaster because we carry the hate we have been taught with us. Patience, and true love takes time, and we must understand that time exists as a control over us. We must unconditionally love, not just each other or ourselves, we must truly love everything around us equally as we are only as important as the true love we have for everything. Selectivity does not compute when it comes to unconditional love. It is not possible to unconditionally love one thing and hate another. We have been manipulated and programed into believing we can, but true love and hate are not opposites. If true love exists, then hate can not, and if hate exists then true love, unconditional love, cannot. For us as a species, selective love cannot exist. Only unconditional love, true love, complete love, and endearing love matters.
You may take this or leave it for what it’s worth. If you can understand this and accept this, then we, as a species, have a chance. If this is all bullshit to you, then we as a species, have no chance at all. It doesn’t matter to me as I have my understanding. But if you are at all wanting to see a better world. Wanting to experience peace and community within our species. Wanting to make the changes in yourself, then contact me. For in the end, it most certainly will matter to you.
