Social control is an interest of deep politicians with long term aspirations, be they dystopian or utopian.

Controlled media

Aldous Huxley - The Ultimate Revolution (Berkeley Speech 1962)[1]
Full article: Rated 3/5 Corporate media

For most people in the world, in the late 20th century, the commercially-controlled media was highly influential in shaping their worldview, with television being a key tool in the process. The rise of the internet is changing this, and strenuous efforts are being made by the establishment to increase internet censorship.

"Forgotten" topics

Certain topics are deemed unsuitable for school, i.e. how money is created, media ownership, methods of empire (see Strategy of Tension), or quantum physics.

Strategy of Tension

Full article: Strategy of Tension

Since WW2, Operation Gladio has applied a strategy of tension, most notably in Italy but also in other countries, to promote fear an uncertainty and render the population pliable. This has been ramped up since 9-11 and the 21st century has seen a spate of false flag attacks used to promote the idea of a worldwide "war on terror". The original Gladio has been replaced by Gladio B, demonising "Muslim terrorists".

Global Control grid

The Global control grid describes the technical possibilities and applications to achieve social control.

Social credit system

In China the so called "social Credit" System has combined large scale surveillance with aversive conditioning. [2]

China's Orwellianism has been called a reference for ID2020, a Bill Gates global biometric tagging project and Chinese specialists took part in Event201 which eventually modeled implementation for such measures.[citation needed]

Nudge Theory

Similar to China, in the US and its 'allies' behavioral science insights are used to "better serve the people." (Obama) [3] , i.e. occasional rewards and punishments in the vicious form of ostracism aka a feeling of social exclusion and guilt or even shame .[4] The system is praised in that it changes how people behave in predictable ways “without forbidding any options or significantly changing their economic incentives.” The author fails to mention that such manipulative measures foster dependency and passivity, lower self esteem and are more painful than paying a fine. They might fly under the radar, however, operating in stealthy and covert ways.

How Do You Get Manipulated? Manipulative relationships depend on activating one (or both) of two principal human drives: gain (or reward) and loss (or avoidance). These are the two engines that drive the manipulation. Do not bother looking for anything more complicated than this: Manipulation always boils down to the promise of a net gain and/or the threat of a net loss.”
Harriet Braiker (2003)  [5]

Manipulation is different from — and should not be confused with — legitimate, direct, above-board influence. In contrast to openly announced influence (i.e. monetary incentives), manipulative social control thrives in an atmosphere of indirect, devious, and even deceptive communication. Agendas frequently are hidden and purposes disguised. Threats, intimidation, and coercion are preferred tactics. Manipulators seek the opportunity to ensnare and entrap their victims. They often proceed in subtle, devious, or covert ways so that the manipulative character of the relationship is well established long before its true nature becomes apparent.

School ddees.jpg

School is the primary means of social control of the young. School whistleblower John Taylor Gatto documented a concerted effort to extend childhood in his Underground History of American Education which details a decision made by managers in the second half of the 19th century to use mass compulsion schooling to handicap the intellectual development of the masses. He states that "adolescence" is a modern concept, and cites the example of David Farragut who was commissioned a midshipman in the United States Navy before he was a teenager, and in the War of 1812 was even put in charge of a captured vessel, the Essex.[6][7]

Denial of autonomy

In March 2015 Child Protective Services found Danielle and Alexander Meitiv guilty of "unsubstantiated child neglect" after they admitted allowing their children, ages 6 and 10 years old, to walk home alone from a park less than one mile from their house. Maryland laws stated that kids must be accompanied by an adult until they reach age 13.[8]


Advertisements have been used to try to deter particular behaviours.


Advertisements for tobacco products were banned in many countries.[When?] Later, a health warning on the packages was mandated. Later still, this was illustrated with a graphic image, for example, of a victim of lung cancer.

Knife crime

Research into new methods of social control is ongoing. In UK in 2019, the UK Home office introduced messages on boxes of fried chicken, reportedly intended to deter knife crime.[9]


Monetisation arguably represents one of the most important and widespread means of social control.


Alcohol and tobacco products are heavily taxed in most countries.


Various products have been subsidised, either to motivate consumption, alleviate hardship or for more complex reasons. For example, in the UK, mortgage tax relief motivated people to take out large, long term mortgages.

Related Quotations

"Strike Hard Campaign"“The Strike Hard Campaign has shown complete disregard for the rights of Turkic Muslims to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. In Xinjiang, authorities have created a system that considers individuals suspicious based on broad and dubious criteria, and then generates lists of people to be evaluated by officials for detention. Official documents state that individuals “who ought to be taken, should be taken,” suggesting the goal is to maximize the number of people they find “untrustworthy” in detention. Such people are then subjected to police interrogation without basic procedural protections. They have no right to legal counsel, and some are subjected to torture and mistreatment, for which they have no effective redress, as we have documented in our September 2018 report. The result is Chinese authorities, bolstered by technology, arbitrarily and indefinitely detaining Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang en masse for actions and behavior that are not crimes under Chinese law.”1 May 2019
"Strike Hard Campaign"“Credible estimates indicate that under this heightened repression, up to one million people are being held in “political education” camps. The government’s “Strike Hard Campaign against Violent Terrorism” (Strike Hard Campaign, 严厉打击暴力恐怖活动专项行动) has turned Xinjiang into one of China’s major centers for using innovative technologies for social control.”1 May 2019
Edward Bernays“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country... In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons... who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”Edward Bernays1928
George Carlin“Governments don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that... that doesn't help them. That’s against their interests. They don't want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they are getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fuckin' years ago. They don't want that. You know what they want?... They want obedient workers, obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.”George Carlin
John Taylor Gatto“We have come under the domain of a scientific-management manage every second of our lives, every expenditure that we make.”John Taylor Gatto
Hollywood/Predictive programming“Hollywood is the magician's wand (holly-holy) which has been used to cast a spell on the unsuspecting public. Things or ideas which would otherwise be seen as bizarre, vulgar, undesirable or impossible are inserted into films in the realm of fantasy. When the viewer watches these films, his/her mind is left open to suggestion and the conditioning process begins. These same movies which are designed to program the average person, can give the discerning viewer a better understanding of the workings and the plan of the world agenda. "Be-aware".

Predictive Programming - The power of suggestion using the media of fiction to create a desired outcome.”

Alan Watt
Mass surveillance“Extreme forms of monitoring, whether by the KGB in the Soviet Union, the Stasi in East Germany, or Big Brother in 1984, are essential elements of all tyrannies, and technology is making both monitoring and the consolidation of surveillance data easier than ever.”Robert Epstein18 February 2016
Mind control“The goal and end of Mind Control is to control and bondage the victim or survivor both during abuse and ritual and during 'normal life'”Ritualistic Abuse Consultancy
Sydney .
Mind control“Basically, what we as therapists across the country are finding are a group of clients that formally were considered untreatable, that based on recent information we're finding are reporting having been subjects in mind control experimentation performed by the government, the CIA and the military establishment ... probably from about the late 1940's until middle 80's and may even be going on today.”Valerie Wolf15 March 1995
Mind control“In late 2002, Defense Secretary Rumsfeld appointed General Geoffrey Miller to command Guantanamo with wide latitude for interrogation, making this prison an ad hoc behavioral laboratory. Moving beyond the CIA’s

original attack on sensory receptors universal to all humans, Guantanamo’s interrogators stiffened the psychological assault by exploring Arab “cultural sensitivity” to sexuality, gender identity, and fear of dogs. General Miller also

formed Behavioral Science Consultation teams of military psychologists who probed each detainee for individual phobias[...].”
Alfred McCoy2006
Mind control“When torture is covertly practiced but officially and legally repudiated, there is still hope that if atrocities are exposed, justice could prevail. When torture is pseudo-legal and those responsible deny that it is torture, what dies is what Hannah Arendt called "the juridical person in man".”Naomi Klein2005
Mind control“The aims of the concentration camp as an institution are to break the prisoners as individuals, to spread terror among the rest of the population, and to provide the Gestapo with a training ground and an experimental laboratory. [...] The typical initial reactions are feelings of detachment: 'this can't be true … things like this just don't happen'.

The first few weeks are the worst; persons who manage to live through the transportation to camp and the first three months thereafter, have a fair chance of surviving. If the tortures become too intense, indifference takes the place of anxiety. Prisoners are particularly sensitive to punishments resembling those a parent might inflict upon a child. Prisoners' dreams rarely deal with situations of extreme torture but instead with comparatively smaller maltreatment. Group formation, especially around a hero or martyr, is very effectively prohibited by means of group punishments. For only a short time do the new prisoners direct their hostility primarily against their real enemy; in many cases it is soon turned against former friends or members of the family by whom the prisoners feel deserted. Old prisoners come to direct their hostility mostly against themselves. Gradually a regression to infantile levels take place, turning many prisoners into willing tools in the hands of the Gestapo.

In the phase of 'final adjustment', the strangest phenomenon of all could be observed: the prisoners' identification with the guards. Certain prisoners even tried to imitate the guards' uniforms, became cruel to their fellow-prisoners, partly accepted Nazi ideology. The author's conclusion is: What thus happens in an extreme fashion to the prisoners in concentration camps, happens also, in a somewhat less exaggerated form, to the inhabitants of the great concentration camp called 'Greater Germany'.”
Mind control“Mind Control is a system of influences which break the identity of an individual (his/her beliefs, behavior, thoughts and feelings) and replace it with a new identity”Steve Hassan1993
Mind control/Child Abuse“Clearly our field would like to ignore social realities.”Psychiatrist and trauma researcher Bessel van der Kolk2013
Mind control/Child Abuse“Both Haidee Faimberg (1988) and Ilony Kogan (1989) have shown us how direct and coercive these forms of inherited distress are and how they come to be acted out 'unto the seventh generation' - or at least in the generations to which we have so far had analytic access.”Robert M. Young1992
School“schools have not necessarily much to do with education... they are mainly institutions of control, where basic habits must be inculcated in the young. Education is quite different and has little place in school.”Winston Churchill
School“Tests aren't tests at all, they're drills. They're part of a psychological training package which controls the behaviour of the unsuspecting. The ultimate goal is to establish and perpetuate a hierarchy. You have to be made to feel that you failed.”John Taylor Gatto2007
Strategy of tension“In order to tackle the root causes of radicalization ("Radicalization" refers to a value shift towards fovouring a more equal distribution of wealth) in particular of young people, the EU should consider strengthening targeted actions designed to raise awareness and promote the respect of fundamental rights and values".”European Ministers of the Interior2015
The Pedophocracy“Contracts between the business milieu and the political world, contracts between businessmen amongst each other, fraud with subsidies or licenses, setting up fake firms, criminal contracts like arms trade... everything was possible. And it always ended with sex and children... Pictures were taken, in jest, to keep both parties to their contracts...


Step by step customers, who first went to bed with me cautiously, were stimulated to rougher sex. I was forced to help them with that... They became complicit and at the same time their mutual connections became tighter. Not one of these people was still inclined to sign contracts with individuals outside the network. If that happened one could make them pay dearly for that...”
Regina Louf1998
