Empowering our species. An open journal written by and reinforcing the integrity of the masses.
“It is worthy of remark that a belief constantly inculcated during the early years of life, whilst the brain is impressible, appears to acquire almost the nature of an instinct; and the very essence of an instinct is that it is followed independently of [conscious] reason.”
I would like with your help to create a compendium of tools for the express purpose of passing on to new generations the most salient of truths and wisdom. I have chosen to focus my energies on 10 strategies which are said to be used in controlling the masses. I figure if I can arm our children against being manipulated unawares then maybe their generation will be better equipped to do what is necessary for our survival as an evolving species. I am asking that you take some time reading each of the ideals, then offer your opinion or make changes to the original affirmation I have provided. Please use the rating system provided by TED to vote for those comments you feel best addressed the idea being discussed. I am open to suggestions.
