What is Groupthink?
Groupthink is a form of mind control perpetrated upon the good people on this planet.
Groupthink is so pervasive that it takes place without one even realizing it.
Groupthink is characterized by a herd mentality, a rush towards conformity, and a refusal to consider any opinion differing from the herd of others who are also being influenced by the crowd.
The Mainstream Media (MSM), which is just a mouth piece for the US government, relies upon this age old phenomenon of “controlling the masses” in order to obtain a consensus from it’s viewers on the information that it is told to get out to the mass population.
Definition: Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of people, in which the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an incorrect or deviant decision-making outcome. Group members try to minimize conflict and reach a consensus decision without critical evaluation of alternative ideas or viewpoints.
Loyalty to the group requires individuals to avoid raising controversial issues or alternative solutions. The dysfunctional group dynamics produces an “illusion of invulnerability” (inflated certaintly that the right decision has been made). The primary socially negative cost of groupthink is the loss of individual creativity, uniqueness, and independent thinking. And, this is why this MIND CONTROL method is so successful.
Did you know that only 6 Monolithic Corporations have total control over almost everything we watch, read and hear? They own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, even music labels.
Whenever power is consolidated into the hands of only a few, corruption can arise. It reminds me of the famous quote by Lord Acton,
“Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
Unfortunately, this corruption with “absolute” power is the nature of the beast that relies upon this “perfected” mind control and brainwashing technique to keep their populous ignorant and to sell an agenda.
Since the Mainstream Media is dominated by those six major corporation’s interests only, let us not forget that it is a huge business. Their bottom line isn’t adherence to fact, truth or journalistic integrity, but rather turning a profit and getting the masses to believe what they are being told is the real story.
In addition, they amplify the disinformation in such a way as to divide people into arguing factions. The Mainstream Media will send out antagonistic and confusing spins on facts purposefully to keep us divided and arguing.
This keeps the masses in a state of habitual infighting and guarantees the status quo as the following quotes reflect:
“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” – Abraham Lincoln
“United we stand, divided we fall.” – Aesop
There is one thing, however, that the mainstream media all agree upon and that is the swaying the public opinion, regardless to what agenda (i.e. war, advertising, consuming, etc.), that ultimately involves making a profit off their propagated populous.
You can do your family and friends a favor and turn them on to the other media alternatives to which can only be accessed via the internet. Ask them to switch from drowning in the mind control psyop of their TV news and begin utilizing independent, alternative media sources.
Hopefully, they will then be able to see for themselves what they are or are not being told. As always, we should continue to question everything we watch, read or hear and utilize the great gift of discernment when filtering that information.
Unless we (or good friends/family) were there to hear or see what is being reported, all news must be questioned in this time of great universal deception.
