Thanks Hugh, I appreciate what you're saying. I see the propaganda everywhere and constantly. I absolutely can’t watch TV anymore at all. Even with a friend, I get antsy and have to leave the room. It’s like the proverbial fingernails on the blackboard syndrome for me. Same is true for the “popular” movies.
Your thesis makes sense to me because Yours, Mine, and Ours is so stupid and insipid and boring. Perfect for mesmerizing and hoodwinking the audience. Same holds for The Incredible Mr. Limpet. Ghastly. They certainly weren’t made as an art form.
Professor, when talking about psychology and mental illness, do you mean the psychology you learned from traditional education? That other programming mechanism? We as humans are bombarded from the day we’re born – programmed, conditioned, domesticated, lied to, abused, misdirected, etc etc. We’re basically brainwashed and manipulated by our parents, religious figures, teachers, military commanders, prison guards, financial experts, politicians, etc. Who is mentally ill and who is sane among the insane? Those who ‘succeed’ are those who are convinced that capitalism, competition, and consumer society are the only norms.
From the time we’re children, we’re told not to believe anything that comes to our minds naturally. We’re taught not to believe what we see with our eyes and hear with our ears. The massive media machine is constantly adjusting our perception to align us with their agenda items.
I’ve recently been in a new Chuckee Cheese pizza restaurant. It’s very modern with 3 large TV screens. I was amazed to hear some beautiful, soothing music. I looked up and watched the 3 big screens. As the music played, I watched stark, white icebergs and glaciers amid beautiful, blue ocean. Suddenly, while the soothing music played, pieces of the icebergs and glaciers suddenly broke off and crashed into the ocean, floating away. One interpretation might be - soothing music showing the children and families that, basically, the melting and breaking apart of the polar ice caps is good, or at least, normal. We’ll probably end up with some sort of penguin adoption program.
It reminds me of the NASA ‘science program’ to have school age children go outside and count the “contrails and vapor trails” they see in the sky on any particular day or week. One interpretation might be that this would condition the children to see “chemtrails” as normal.
From the NASA Student Features Program:
"We're looking for special clouds called contrails.
We want students, teachers and parents all over the world to report the number of contrails in the sky....
Contrails look like white lines in the sky"

And that’s not to mention the little green dancing alien beings who now prance away on my ATT/Yahoo email page, advertising mortgage rates. Programming, conditioning, domesticating, hypnotizing, mesmerizing, deceiving, hoodwinking, terrorizing, and, of course, the ever present lies, lies, lies.
I think this is more than “keyword” hijacking. I see it as “word, phrase, dream, image, idea, sound, thought, memory” hijacking, perhaps.
Nothing more than normal psychological operations.
