Orwell Was Right About Mind Control?
New research released this month could have significant effects on how the future is written. For a long time, non-fiction and fiction writers like George Orwell have warned against subliminal and unconscious efforts to manipulate people’s opinions. And now according to one study, the use of magnetic waves could create artificial thoughts and decisions similar to Orwell’s predictions.
The Government Can Use Magnetic Waves to Control Your Brain?
The UK Express reported on the surprising developments. The experiment included the use of transcranial magnetic stimulation or TMS. And this was done to change the subjects’ thought processes. In the results released, the patients improved their beliefs in God and how to treat migrants flowing into Europe. The experiments centered around the posterior medial frontal cortex.
The results were just stunning. Even after being reminded of the effects of death, which often lead to people turning to religion, the respondents still reported lower faith after undergoing the experimental treatment. The results were published in the Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience. So this appears to be one of the first major successful attempts to sway people’s thinking and thoughts.
Israelis Can Even Control Maternal Instincts?
This followed a similar study conducted by Israeli scientists. This research is covered by the UK Daily Mail here. Researchers, in that case, pinpointed a part of the brain that helped control maternal instincts. They also believed that the same region could control aggression and other hard-wired parts of the brain. Science Daily reported on an effort that resulted in the part of the brain that controls dreams to be shut off. No matter how you look at it, these technologies are growing very rapidly.
- Can this Technology Be Misused?
There are safeguards in place in labs, universities, and among governments to avoid the misuse of such technology. But the imperfect nature of these systems and human nature make it clear that eventually this type of treatment could fall into the wrong hands and be expanded. Scientists have just one shot at opening Pandora’s box.
They’d better be sure they want to find out what’s inside. Civil Libertarians like attorney Michael Ehline have been warning parents about state-run mind control programs like Common Core, and the forced unionization of public school teachers for years.
“The similarities between post Weimar Germany and the modern U.S. education system are strikingly similar,” says Ehline.
Ehline went on to state that “scientific mind control was probably unnecessary. It appears that the only thing standing in the way of the total Nazification of America and other countries are those voices in the desert.
These are those calling for a return to the Constitutional Republic. However, many Progressives and Statists would argue that people need to be controlled by the government for “the greater good.” What is your opinion? Sound off.
