BTW, to start. I like this board. I feel the admin are real and that it's purposes are genuine. I've been on many, many boards arguing for 9-11 truth and have learned a great deal. I hope to share that meaningfully. Time to get sophisticated. Stop being herded as sheep with deceptions and manipulations. Do you know that the black budget includes spending for domestic uses that are not Constitutionally allowed have been happening for years and questioned by sincere legislators with occasional exposure? We've heard of "destabilization campaigns", consider, "Would infiltrators, if they existed, implement one in this nation in order to make insurrection easier? This manipulation goes back so far that we actually do not know what a free and un fettered society is, as far as I can tell. Our futures are at stake. So read carefully. Use critical thinking to understand that reality is comprised of evidence and reason. We can draw the line in this electronic environment and refuse to be manipulated, and IF we seek to preserve and protect our Constitution and there are many signs something is very wrong. We must each use or try to detect these manipulations just to see if such a notion bears merit, and the fact that such techniques are embraced by science and law for many centuries. This is about how to determine when you or your discussion are targeted. If you are able to see this is reasonable and seek to protect the Constitution, it will become implemented by a group of Americans very easily just by following simple rules that science and law have used for a long time with success. USAGE: Nothing trumps independently verified evidence particularly when it lends itself logically to explanation. I would say that it is common knowledge, but it is not. Errors can be commonly held, and are. Cognitive distortions are not allowed to justify something which can be shown to perhaps compromise the rule of law. They are allowed, minimally, after the basic point is well established with evidence and reason, to facilitate more efficient understanding of truths that protect life, the Constitution, rule of law, etc. Once a poster is labeled as one who refused to use evidence and support the rule of law with reason they are reported to admin and then banned by admin for 2 weeks. If they wish to return they do so but are on semi permanent probation unless they are able to reasonably substantiate their position at some time with independently verified evidence. A sincere American will always take the reasonable path with evidence and reason because the Constitution delineates that courts of law are what uphold rights. Therefore the citizens of a nation such as ours have a duty to employ what is needed to monitor courts, or be a jury, or a reasonable and law abiding citizen. The agents cannot do this. EXAMPLE: Here is a summary and example of the kind of manipulative techniques the psyops employs. The psyops uses technology of psychology and collusion to The above language is very typical for the post 9-11 psyops agent. I know for certain that they exist because I've been stalked for 5 years by them. I've proven that they will falsify evidence. As you've seen in this thread, there is no evidence which can be independently verified for the steel core columns that FEMA says occupied the core area. The same photos that show concrete prove no core columns. Accordingly the agents of the infiltrators, insurrectionist perpetrators of mass murder on American soil MUST fabricate something, anything, to materially oppose the truth. The language: What is utilized is part of a technique developed in the 1970's and is a part of the "delphi" technique which was developed to control the thinking and beliefs of scientists if possible, or that was it's most important application. It involves taking a group of scientists and placing them together. A few are actually posing as scientists with false credentials. They are very knowledgeable and versed in particular science so can immediately handle any question any true scientist could, and do within the manipulation of the group of scientists. The rand corp did these think tank studies starting in the 1960's. The basic idea is that a diversion from rationally established science is created by the planted agents by exploiting the unwitting scientists by exploitation of animal social instincts of the unconscious minds. Through brain studies over a number of decades it can be inferred that speech and listening always involved the left brain whereas writing and reading did not necessarily do so. The development of this technique included the first email type communications between these scientists, long before the internet. Aspects of established psychology identify a specific method that a human mind can use to justify certain behaviors or thought patterns within one persons mind. Those methods are generally called "Cognitive distortions". Here is a list which has been very slightly modified to include use by one person, upon another, to suggest or lead them into making distortions. The idea is that attitudes control perceptions, so the creation of an attitude is primary. 1. All or nothing thinking: Things are placed in black or white categories. 2. Over generalization: Single event is viewed as continuous. 3. Mental filter: Details in life (positive or negative) are amplified in importance while opposite is rejected. 4. Minimizing: Perceiving one or opposite experiences (positive or negative) as absolute and maintaining singularity of belief to one or the other. 5. Mind reading: One absolutely concludes that others are reacting positively or negatively without investigating reality. 6. Fortune Telling: Based on previous 5 distortions, anticipation of negative or positive outcome of situations is established fact. 7. Catastrophizing: Exaggerated importance of self's failures and others successes. 8. Emotional reasoning: One feels as though emotional state IS reality of situation. 9. "Should" statements: Self imposed rules about behavior creating guilt at self inability to adhere and anger at others in their inability to conform to self's rules. 10. Labeling: Instead of understanding errors over generalization is applied. 11. Personalization: Thinking that the actions or statements of others are a reaction to you. 12. Entitlement: Believing that you deserve things you have not earned. In analysis of kwc57's language, which is almost so typical that some refer to as a "bot" answer. The above has the below cognitive distortions as implied complex elements of kwc57's statement;1, 4, 7, 8 & 12. 1. wishes to set the readers perception of their patriotic position in maximum. 4. The actual maximization working to minimize my position having tangibly and cognitively definable evidence. 7. There is an implied disaster if others don't accept that kwc57 is correct because what I suggest is so scary. 8. Love for the Constitution is a very emotional thing for soldiers and others who have made or seen sacrifices for rights and freedom guranteed by our Constitution. 12. Because kwc57 is professing it's love for the Constitution by rejecting my scary information, there is the expectation that others will too. The above has the below cognitive distortions as implied complex elements of kwc57's statement;1, 11, 10, 4. 1. The suggestion is that I only "believe" when the fact is that I can show with evidence. 11. This is an inversion where kwc57 is trying to lead others into thinking their post is a legitimate and reasonable reaction to me and my information. 10. "tin hat, black helicopter, conspiracy theories" is a common label used to minimize people by creating "cognitive dissonance". 4. The assertion of "laughter" or ridicule is the flag of manipulation through social fears. kwc57 is trying to unconscious induce other to "not want to be laughed at." These people are trained at this and they have technology that is surprising. Get on a new chat board that has a bot keeping things busy. You'll be surprised at the degree of artificial intelligence that is there. Not that I believe kwc57 is a bot because bots are only used when there is very high traffic for the most part. Their mechanistic posts are too obvious to let them repeat. It is possible bots are used as peanut galleries or sidekicks by agents.
