Which Will It Be? The "New Normal" or A Return To Normal?

Permalink 09/16/23 13:15, by OGRE / (Jeff), Categories: Welcome, News, Background, In real life, On the web, History, Politics, Elections

Everyone was told that if they just get the vaccine, things will return to normal. I didn't believe it then, and I don't believe it now. Things went way too far -- way too fast, for this not to be a giant permanent power grab.

Let's take a look at what Cathy Hochul is saying in New York.

The updated vaccine, necessary due to waning immunity and mutated variants, was reformulated and developed in recent months following the FDA decision to target a subvariant of Omicron, called XBB.1.5. According to CDC, more than 90% of the COVID viruses circulating are closely related to that strain, with tests showing the updated vaccine effective at increasing immunity to a more recent variant, called BA.2.86.

Isn't that the same language that was used for the first round of shots, and the boosters?

“The vaccine has always been the best way to protect yourself and your community against COVID-19, and this updated vaccine addresses newer strains of the virus that are currently circulating,” Governor Hochul said. “As we enter the Fall season, when respiratory viruses circulate, it is vital that New Yorkers consider getting this updated vaccine to protect themselves from this still dangerous virus.”

We know that the vaccines don't protect other people from infection. They don't "stop the spread." Why are they still parroting this? Even USA Today underhandedly says that this is not true.

Susan Hassig, an epidemiologist at Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, similarly said that vaccines protect vaccinated individuals by greatly reducing their risk of infection, illness and death. That individual vaccination then protects the broader community by making the vaccinated person less likely to become a host.

“This benefit is most evident when the majority of persons in a community are vaccinated,” Hassig said. "The virus, if introduced, has nowhere to go, and dies out. Cannot spread, cannot mutate.”

You have to pay close attention to what is said here. Susan Hassig didn't mention the COVID-19 vaccines, she said, "vaccines" as in traditional vaccines. She said what has been said for the past 80+ years. Besides, we still have variants all over the place, and it is well known that there is no way to eradicate a respiratory virus through vaccination. Not to mention there are multiple animal vectors. Animals that are claimed to get SARS-CoV-2 infections. Are we going to vaccinate every animal that they claim can carry SARS-CoV-2?

The the CDC says, "The risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people is considered low."

Risk of animals spreading SARS-CoV-2 to people

The risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people is considered low.

There is no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, to people. There have been a few reports of infected mammalian animals spreading the virus to people during close contact, but this is rare. These cases include farmed mink in Europe and the United States, white-tailed deer in Canada, pet hamsters in Hong Kong, and a cat in Thailand. In most of these cases, the animals were known to be first infected by a person who had COVID-19.

Animals infected with SARS-CoV-2 have been documented around the world. Most of these animals became infected after contact with people with COVID-19, including owners, caretakers, or others who were in close contact. We don’t yet know all of the animals that can get infected. Animals reported infected worldwide include

Companion animals, including pet cats, dogs, hamsters, and ferrets.

  • Animals in zoos and sanctuaries, including several types of big cats (e.g., lions, tigers, snow leopards), otters, non-human primates, a binturong, a coatimundi, a fishing cat, hyenas, hippopotamuses, and manatees.
  • Mink on mink farms.
  • Wildlife, including white-tailed deer, mule deer, a black-tailed marmoset, a giant anteater, and wild mink near mink farms.

The CDC says, "There is no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading SARS-CoV-2." Of course their story is that it first infected a human because of a bat. Or was it made in a lab? I'm not sure anymore, and neither are the "experts." Because they keep changing their story -- each time the current story becomes less plausible.

Remember, if you just get the vaccine, things will go back to normal. The lockdowns will stop, we can all take off the masks, stop standing 6-feet apart, and using salad bar sneeze guards at checkout counters. Only that was a lie to get people to take the vaccines. If you remember Fauci was asked multiple times as to what the vaccination level needed to be before things could go back to normal.

Fauci has in the past said that if the U.S. achieves 70% to 85% of the population vaccinated, that would equate to good “herd immunity,” and the country should start to see a return to normality by the fall. That, of course, may depend on individuals’ age, circumstances and underlying conditions.

Also Thursday, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla told CNBC that people will likely require a third vaccine dose after 12 months, and potentially annual vaccinations thereafter. When asked about the prospects for a next-generation vaccine that can fend off emerging variants of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, Fauci told the hearing that the endgame was a universal vaccine, the business-news channel reported.

At any rate, the goal is to get people to take these mRNA vaccines in perpetuity. If public health were ever the true goal things would not have progressed this way.

Use Your Illusion

Permalink 09/12/23 06:42, by OGRE / (Jeff), Categories: Welcome, News, Background, In real life, On the web, Politics, U.S. Economy, Elections

Don't give the globalists what they want. What do they want? They want the Illusion that Biden is in control.

If the Republicans try to impeach Biden, it plays right into the globalist's plans. An impeachment hearing gives the impression that Biden is actually calling the shots -- and that Republicans actually believe this. It gives the impression that by removing Biden, things might change. But most importantly it changes the narrative. It gets people focused on Biden's personal crimes -- not what has been done to the country as a result of his administration's actions.

What the American people have to understand is that Biden, whether you believe he was elected or not, is absolutely incapacitated. Biden hasn't been in charge of anything, he's not mentally capable. Nobody would pick Biden as their Jeopardy partner, much less to run the largest economy on the planet.

Consider Biden's first day in office, what did he do? He signed around a dozen (Executive Orders) EOs undoing a lot of Trump's EOs. Does anyone really believe that Biden has the mental capacity to read those EOs, or to understand the implications of signing them? Of course he doesn't, but the people around him do.

Biden does not represent his administration. Multiple times this year alone, Biden's administration has had to walk back what he's said. Why? Because he doesn't speak for his administration -- they tell him what to say. Biden has admitted that he shouldn't get off topic because he'll, "Get in trouble." Really? The president will get in trouble if he says something other than what his handlers want him to say?

It's like a bad joke, only nobody is laughing. Nobody is laughing in the US, or anywhere else in the world, because the implications of this are worldwide, and they are not good for ordinary people anywhere.

What has become clear is the illusory activities of the current administration/regime. Nobody really knows what they are up to next, because they have zero outward facing visibility, we know that whatever Biden says doesn't matter. We only know that whatever they do, it's not in the best interest of the American people.

Agenda 2030 - Samsung Teams Up With The United Nations to Raise Awareness?

Permalink 08/01/23 18:25, by OGRE / (Jeff), Categories: Welcome, News, Background, In real life, On the web, History, Politics, Strange_News

Many people were under the impression that UN Agenda 2030 directive was a "conspiracy theory." It is most definitely not.

Here are screen shots for the associated Samsung Global Goals website. I did this to document what was on the website as of this date. I don't know if these sorts of apps will become more invasive in the future or not.

Keep in mind, EULAs (End User License Agreements) are not getting any shorter. Also keep in mind that Microsoft owns your copy of MS Windows. Not you, you paid for it, but you didn't "buy" it, you paid for the rights to use it. Any Windows machine is basically like a cable TV box. Microsoft can update and change your computer when they want, and you don't have any say in what they do.

United Nations, Agenda 2030, and Samsung.

The app is designed to allow users to watch adds, then the add revenue is stored in the user's donation account. It is later donated to the UN or whatever associated "charity," sometimes automatically.







Here's the info from the Google Play Store about the Samsung Global Goals app.


The reviews are rather interesting. There are many of people who like the app, but, few who really know what Agenda 2030 is about. This first person does.







Some people don't like the app.






Samsung replies with something like, "Agenda 2030, SDGs, and UN directives are important -- because 'we' say they are. Therefore, you will do what we say, and like it. Oh and raising awareness and stuff..." People might want to read those EULAs a little more closely.

I'll admit, I have Samsung devices. While I've never run into this application on my devices, I'm going to be looking to other manufacturers from now on when purchasing phones.

What's New? Dengue Fever -- That's What's New!

Permalink 07/26/23 18:59, by OGRE / (Jeff), Categories: Welcome, News, Background, In real life, On the web, History, Politics, Strange_News

Setting The Stage

It’s now being widely reported that Dengue Fever might become the next global pandemic. Does this really make sense? Why are more people getting it now, than just a few years ago?

Lima is dealing with an outbreak of dengue.

Rosa Gutiérrez, who was forced to resign as health minister on June 16, was widely viewed, both by medical experts and ordinary Peruvians, as out of her depth in handling the outbreak.


"But it's not just the health ministry," says Soto. "It's also the education ministry, the housing ministry, infrastructure and regional governments," which are failing. One of the many problems he criticized was the lack of potable water and sanitation services at schools, with pupils often forced to wash their hands in plastic tubs and flush toilets with buckets of water, making the schools dengue hot spots and forcing the Piura regional government to close them for several weeks.

It would seem to me that there are much larger problems in Lima. Lack of sanitation is the absolute number one cause of illness anywhere. Vaccines are not the answer to a place with not running water, improving infrastructure is the start. There is data going back 100+ years that illustrates an increase in public sanitation services, with a dramatic decrease in illness -- far more effective than any vaccine. But that's a topic for another day.

According to some people, this increase might be climate related.

"Dengue is occurring in urban areas where it did not exist before," Dr. Coralith García, associate professor at the school of medicine at Cayetano Heredia University in Lima, Peru, told Fox News Digital.

Experts blame warmer temperatures and increased rainfall, but even in Lima, the second largest desert city in the world, dengue is flourishing because "it’s so crowded that anything can happen," she added.

The "experts" blame high temperatures and increased humidity/rainfall for the rise in cases (dengue is spread by mosquitoes) however, cases are simultaneously increasing in places with hot dry climates?

This is explained away by saying, "it’s so crowded [in Lima] that anything can happen." Really? When was the last malaria outbreak in Lima? Watch out for those pesky -- Desert Mosquitoes. And, Lima didn't become densely populated within the last year, Lima has been densely populated for decades, so why are we seeing this now? You can't have it both ways, but when you're making up stuff, you need it both ways.

I'm not blasting Dr. Coralith García, associate professor at the school of medicine at Cayetano Heredia University in Lima, Peru, but this is not "science." "Anything can happen" is not science, that's a literal admission that they have no answer for what's going on.

How Dangerous is Dengue Fever

Dengue fever is unique in that it requires an ADE (Autoimmune Deficiency Enhancement) response, in part, to make people sick. Most people who are exposed to and catch dengue fever have no symptoms the first time around, however; when they are exposed the second time, they are much more likely to get sick. This is why the vaccine (Dengvaxia) is only supposed to be given to people who have had dengue fever in the past. More on this later.

CDC stats for the Flu -- deaths US only.

CDC estimates that flu has resulted in 9 million – 41 million illnesses, 140,000 – 710,000 hospitalizations and 12,000 – 52,000 deaths annually between 2010 and 2020.

Now let's look at dengue fever -- deaths GLOBALLY.

Each year, up to 400 million people are infected by a dengue virus. Approximately 100 million people get sick from infection, and 40,000 die from severe dengue.

Somehow since COVID-19, and a global mass vaccination campaign, a blood-borne illness spread by mosquitoes has become more virulent -- in the desert?

CDC guidance on at home care for dengue fever.

Jump to The Philippines

There is a vaccine for dengue fever, but it doesn't have the best track record. It's called Dengvaxia, the same one that the CDC recommends if you want to be vaccinated for dengue fever.

A vaccination program run by the Philippine Department of Health (DOH) administered Sanofi Pasteur's Dengvaxia to schoolchildren.[3] The program was stopped when Sanofi Pasteur advised the government that the vaccine could put previously uninfected people at a somewhat higher risk of a severe case of dengue fever through antibody-dependent enhancement.[4] A political controversy erupted over whether the program was run with sufficient care and who should be held responsible for the alleged harm to the vaccinated children.

In late November 2017, the DOH suspended the school-based vaccination program.[5] The DOH subsequently banned the vaccine's use and sale in the Philippines.[6] The scare caused by the controversy has been suggested as a factor in the country's loss of confidence in vaccines and low immunization rates,[7] resulting in an infectious disease crisis in the country in 2019,[8] including a measles outbreak.[9]

The dengue fever vaccine (Dengvaxia) was only supposed to be given to people who were previously infected with dengue fever. There is an antibody test to determine whether or not someone has had dengue fever in the past. As I stated earlier dengue fever works in part by ADE. ADE is basically where you are exposed to something, and your body "gets used to it," no longer attacking that particular pathogen when it enters the body. You get exposed to dengue fever, your body builds an ADE response to it, then when you are infected a second time, you could get very sick, because your immune system ignores the pathogen.

The Wikipedia article states that there was an increase in vaccine hesitancy because of the Philippine government's complete mishandling of the Dengvaxia rollout. But then, the article goes on to claim that there was an infectious disease outbreak due to vaccine hesitancy citing measles as the most prevalent.

In 2019 (the year of the measles outbreak) there was an increase of (463) measles deaths when compared to 2018. For 2014, for which there was no measles outbreak, there was an increase of (390) measles deaths when compared to 2013. The difference between the two increases being (73) deaths. However, in 2020, there were only 51 deaths attributed to measles? Was the measles vaccine uptake higher in 2020 when compared to 2019?

Wikipedia shows that the number of deaths due to the 2019 Philippines Measles Outbreak was (415). I don't know which source is more accurate. Keep in mind the population of the Philippines is 109,033,245.

Due to fear of being exposed to people with Covid-19, Vergeire explained that many parents were reluctant to leave their homes and have their children vaccinated.

Moreover, healthcare workers on the ground were unavailable for the vaccination program because they were re-deployed to attend to [COVID-19] vaccination duties.

"The Philippines is one of the few countries that continued with its efforts for supplemental immunization campaigns in the middle of pandemic. The Sabayang Patak Kontra Polio is a continuation of the 2019 polio campaign in response to the polio outbreak in the country," Vergeire said.

She added that in July 2020, the agency has vaccinated more than 2 million children less than five years old in Central Luzon, Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal.

Meanwhile, the first phase of the vaccination against measles-rubella was conducted October to November 2020 covering Luzon regions and the whole of Mindanao and the second phase was conducted during the first quarter of 2021 including the National Capital Region, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, and the Visayas.

Vergeire stressed the vaccines used in routine immunization have been backed up by decades of research and an established system of delivery and monitoring.

"Vaccines saved millions of children from the debilitating effects of VPDs like polio, measles, mumps, and a lot more," she said. (PNA)

Parents were scared to visit health care facilities, and health care workers were unavailable for routine vaccinations because they were busy with COVID-19 vaccinations. The uptake of all other vaccines, other than COVID-19 vaccines, decreased, yet the numbers indicate that there was no outbreak of any other infectious disease? The same people who were vaccine hesitant in 2019, would still be vaccine hesitant in 2020. Somehow there is a decrease in almost every other disease metric -- even with decreased routine vaccine uptake?

Back to Peru

At least some of the findings make sense for Peru.

We observed that since the first case of COVID‐19 was reported in Peru, there has been a decrease in the number of dengue cases reported in several endemic regions of Peru. This temporal pattern is consistent with findings in Brazil. 15 This could be due to the fact that the epidemiological alert triggered by an increase in the number of COVID‐19 cases in Peru has affected the epidemiological surveillance of dengue, resulting in an underreporting of dengue cases, as has also occurred in recent epidemics, where the excessive prioritization of the prevention and control of emerging diseases has led to the unintentional neglect of endemic diseases. 4 Dengue virus is transported mainly by infected travelers. 1 Therefore, social isolation, quarantine, and other preventive measures that were implemented in Peru to counteract the progression of COVID‐19 could have generated a real decrease in the incidence of dengue. 11 , 15 In contrast, difficulty in access to timely diagnosis together with the population's concern about the risk of being infected with COVID‐19 in healthcare facilities may be another reason for the decrease in the number of dengue cases reported at the beginning of the COVID‐19 pandemic. 16

Similarly, until July 2020, in the West Pacific region, countries such as China, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Australia registered fewer cases of dengue compared with that in the same period in 2019. 17 Moreover, in the Americas, data registered up to epidemiological week 21, 2020, show a reduction by approximately 10% compared with that in 2019. 18 Countries such as Bolivia, Honduras, Mexico, Paraguay, and Brazil reported a large increase in the number of dengue cases during the first weeks of 2020, 11 , 15 , 19 which abruptly decreased subsequently, coinciding with the exponential increase in the number of COVID 19 cases. 11 , 15

The findings of our study also demonstrate that the number of dengue cases per million inhabitants during the COVID‐19 pandemic has exceeded the number of cases reported in the years before the pandemic. This is in line with findings in other geographical areas such as Brazil, the Southwest Indian Ocean Islands, 16 and Asia. 20 Paradoxically, this could also be explained because of the prevention measures established to prevent COVID‐19 transmission because, during the quarantine, populations have lived in close contact with each other for a long time, which promotes the reproduction of arthropods/mosquitoes in and around the houses. 21

The logic is as follows; there was a decrease in the number of dengue cases reported in Peru. COVID-19 testing can be blamed for the decrease in documented dengue cases. Dengue virus is transported mainly by infected travelers (also requiring mosquitoes). Social isolation, quarantine, and other preventive measures that were implemented in Peru to counteract the progression of COVID‐19 could have generated a real decrease in the incidence of dengue, but not COVID-19?

This is a very long winded way of saying, dengue was underreported because COVID-19 was overreported. It can't be assumed that the majority of people worldwide -- were primarily sick with one illness.

The Disappearing Flu

Here's data from the CDC for Flu in the US. The Flu nearly disappeared during the 2020-2021 reporting period? The Flu is going to appear as if it surging as soon as there is one year of normal reported cases.

But that problem is two-fold. This could mean that the Flu vaccines aren't working? "The science" is in trouble here because there's not a good way to spin this. Of course, they could claim that the Flu vaccines prevent "severe illness and death," but that wouldn't account for the previous years where people were sick enough to go to the hospital anyway. Again, you can't have it both ways.

Those Pesky "Desert Mosquitoes"

There are many things at play here one of which is the scientific community trying to maintain their relevance. Vaccines have been touted for years to work miracles, and COVID-19 has come along and shown a light on a lot of the issues here. The most important is that bad statistical data leads to ill-informed conclusions.

COVID-19 cases were vastly overreported worldwide. It was not an issue in just a few countries. There were decreases in reported cases for every infectious disease on the planet during the pandemic. The reasons for this are less significant than acknowledging that it happened. The overreporting of COVID-19 has caused all data for a few years now to be completely inaccurate. Because of this, none of the comparative data from year to year during the pandemic period can really be used to draw any conclusion -- other than the data is not accurate.

The Final Stage is Set

Nearly all illnesses, other than COVID-19, have been underreported worldwide. This will result in an apparent increase in any number of underreported illnesses. In reality the comparative data is incorrect, but that will never be pointed out in the media. We are going to see story after story of illnesses that were considered "eradicated" resurfacing -- and the cause will be Climate Change, just like the once tropical, now desert disease dengue. Never mind that the data is nonsense.

The go to answer for stopping the spread of infectious disease(s), also happens to be the go to answer to stop Climate Change.

Q: We have a crisis, Climate Change, how do we stop it?

A: Reduce economic activity by increasing the prices on energy to the point where people are required to ration it. Ban/remove existing sources of energy without viable replacements. Limit people's freedom of movement through increased transportation costs.

Q: We have a crisis, COVID-19, how do we stop it.

A: Reduce economic activity though lockdowns, and forced business closures. Limit people’s freedom of movement through coercive measures, self isolate. Limit human interaction, reduce travel.

The proposed solutions to both problems will result in a drastic reduction of economic activity. Isn't it a little strange how the corrective outcomes of such vastly different problems will result in similar results?

The new narrative is going to be that we have to stop climate change, in order to stop having pandemics.

ADD/ADHD, AADHD, And The Useful Idiots

Permalink 05/07/23 13:30, by OGRE / (Jeff), Categories: Welcome, News, Background, In real life, On the web, History, Politics, Health Care

I have questioned this for a long time, since childhood really. If someone is diagnosed with a disorder, one that causes them to have some inability to concentrate, requiring medication, when do they get over it? Seriously, I don't think this question is asked enough. I asked the question when I was a child.

Another thing I noticed as a kid, was that these same children, who were supposedly unable to concentrate -- could play video games without flinching for hours on end. Sometimes stopping for a bathroom break, or to get some food. If they truly had a disability, how were they able to concentrate so well on their video games?

To me, it seemed more that these children didn’t have a disability, they were simply not interested in school. At a young age, I can see how many children aren’t interested in school. Especially if they are covering things that they already know.

I grew up with people who were diagnosed with ADHD, and were on medication. It turned them into zombies. They used to be kids, like me, who would raise their hand and ask questions. They were actually engaged and interested in learning. After the meds, no more. They were no longer engaged and often were zoned out. They did well on tests, and passed without issue, but they could have done that anyway.

This is exactly what I saw. The children who had “attention deficit disorders,” were already done with their work. They had parents who worked with them from a young age, and were ahead of the other students. It was not that they had a disorder, they just didn’t want to keep going over concepts that they had already mastered.

When I was in elementary school, they did testing for “gifted” students. They performed a series of tests for IQ, functional ability, problem solving, the whole gamut. I was excepted into the program, because I passed all the tests. What happened next is what amazed me.

We didn’t do regular school work. On the second day I was in the program, we went to the science museum for the entire day. We went through all of the exhibits, watched the science demonstrations performed by museum workers, looked at the dinosaur bones -- but most importantly we discussed things. I remember it as an amazing experience.

Regular school wasn’t structured that way. Kids were to be lectured to, and then do written work. That was it. There was very little discussion, and very little in-depth analysis. In-depth analysis is part of what makes learning worth while, otherwise you’re literally just regurgitating stuff. Especially when it comes to math. Without legitimate real-world examples, most math work seems completely useless to children.

When does it end?

So, back to my initial question, when do people grow out of the need for medication? When do they stop having this inability to concentrate? After all, they don't have medications for adults who have attention deficit disorders right?

Well, they do now, but when I was young you didn't hear about this. I wondered, what happens to people who grow up, and are no longer on their parent's insurance? Do they just stop taking the medication? How will they know when they are able to stop taking it? There seems to be no answer to that question. Then in comes AADHD.

ADHD/AADHD has seemed, to me, like a fraud from the beginning. It's a nonclinical diagnosis, requiring treatment with expensive drugs that are proven to be harmful to human development. Of course, that’s never happened before right?

This is no different than any other nonclinical condition. There are many nonclinical conditions that are described in such a way that they seem clinical. The result is that people come to accept these “conditions” as truth, and start treatment for their children, never really knowing that it’s counter productive to their education, much less their development as an adult.

There is information to this effect, but it's harder to find than I imagined.

This paper examines the emergence of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adults. ADHD, commonly known as Hyperactivity, became established in the 1970s as a diagnosis for children; it expanded first to include “adult hyperactives” and, in the 1990s, “ADHD Adults.” This allowed for the inclusion of an entire population of people and their problems that were excluded by the original conception of hyperactive children. We show how lay, professional, and media claims help establish the expanded diagnostic category. We identify particular aspects of the social context that contributed to the rise of adult ADHD and outline some of the social implications of ADHD in adults, especially the medicalization of underperformance and the availability of new disability rights. Adult ADHD serves as an exemplar of several cases of diagnostic expansion, an important avenue of increasing medicalization.

This is how societal issues come about

The truth is that people have to learn to deal with their emotions. Keeping someone drugged from a young age is a prescription for disaster. Similarly, keeping them drugged up until adolescence, then hanging them out to dry is also a recipe for disaster.

I wonder how many of those peaceful Antifa protesters were drugged as children? I also wonder why it seems that so many people are overtly emotional -- especially on issues that minimally effect them?

There have always been the kind of people who will get into a fist fight over a football game. Arguing about the record of some player or another, or which player is better. Someone badmouths a player, and fists are thrown.

I’ve never understood this kind of mentality. It’s not like the athlete who’s being badmouthed is a relative. There is zero stake in defending someone you’ve never met. There’s a name for this type of relational behavior, it’s called a Parasocial Relationship, or in action, Parasocial Interaction (PSI). The people following the celebrity, or athlete act as if they have an actual working (real-life) relationship with the other person. This sort of behavior is nothing new, but we are seeing a lot more of it now than in the past. Partially because of social media, and the ability of people to “follow” someone, and build a virtual (fake) bond with them.

Social media has definitely allowed this to become more numerous, but I wonder if there is something else that helps this along? Is there some other reason that so many people are falling into this strange fake relationship situation?

Belongingness and Acceptance

Psychology Today has some good articles about ADHD and Adult ADHD.

The desire for a sense of belongingness and some measure of acceptance is a basic human need, one of our factory settings. The demands and selection pressures of group living in early human history is the probable driving force in the development of the human capacity for self-regulation (also deemed executive functions). This capacity promoted the ability to “work and play well with others” and to seek and maintain healthy connectedness, which requires intact emotional regulation among other executive function skills.2

Is it possible that a number of people who were drugged, and never learned to deal with emotional stress have learned behaviors, or coping mechanisms, that are conducive to their regular life -- while simultaneously increasing the possibility that they will become useful idiots?

There’s no way to be sure, but I consider the possibility to be quite probable. In order to get to the bottom of this, I’ll have to do more research into the types of people who are more or less susceptible to brainwashing.

Don't misunderstand. I don't think that people who have not learned to deal with there emotions are fools, but they might be easier to fool as a result of never dealing with underlying issues. I've never known anyone who was told that they had mental issues at a young age -- who didn't form some kind of mental issue later in life. Usually depression.

I’m no psychologist, but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express once.

Perhaps I will expand on this topic.
