20 Methods of control and how we can counter them

17. CONTROL BY GOVERNMENT

CONTROL BY GOVERNMENT CENSORSHIP

17.1 Government control        

Did You Know?
Authors Daren Bakst and Patrick Tyrrell, in their article “Big Government Policies that Hurt the Poor and How to Address Them”, state that “All Americans should have the opportunity to get ahead, and opportunities abound in the US market economy, when it is allowed to function freely. If the government would just get out of the way by curtailing cronyism, eliminating unnecessary regulations, and eliminating other government interventions that needlessly drive-up prices, those in need would have a better chance to succeed.”

17.2 Control of Free Speech       

Did You Know?
Covid-19 triggered a wave of free speech abuse, where activists, medics, and political opponents were targeted by government when they opposed the ‘official narrative’.

17.3 Control of the Media              

Did You Know?
Mainstream media in the US is now controlled by companies that have left-wing policies that support the Democratic Party and are being directed by government agencies in doing this. In her article, “Who controls the media today”, Anya Schiffin states, “There are many media systems across the globe that claim to be free, yet whose independence has been eroded. As demagogues rise, independent voices have been squeezed out. Corporate-owned media companies that act in the service of power increasingly exercise soft censorship. Tech giants such as Facebook and Google have dramatically changed how people access information, with consequences that are only beginning to be felt.”

17.4 Control of Education         

Did You Know?
There is now a move to reduce government control of education. A corrupt government will use its control of the education of its future adult citizens for its own political ends, at the expense of the best interests of its people.

17.5 Control through Social Credit Schemes and ESG                          

Did You Know?
ESG is at the heart of the WEF’s Great Reset. ‘Intercessors for America’ states that “Using ESG metrics is an extended version of Marxist Critical Race Theory- scoring, reshaping, and mastering the financial world using Marxist tactics. It is a form of control. Not only do they want to control what companies do by mandating adherence to green, social justice, and approved political views, but they want to control the entire supply-chain that even supports the company. In essence–they will control everything. Only those companies who align with their ideology will be allowed access to banks, receive financing, and participate in our nation’s financial processes.”

17.6 Control through Surveillance         

Did You Know?
In the past few decades, established liberal democracies have been increasingly ready to monitor their citizens on a massive scale.

17.7 Control of People’s Finances                 

Did You Know?
People are prevented from earning their living by all kinds of legal ‘codes and licenses’ that prevent them from growing and selling their own produce. This protects Big Business.

17.8 Control through Violence           

Did You Know?
Thirty-four percent of Americans think violent action against the government is sometimes justified, according to a new poll from The Washington Post and the University of Maryland, that was released days ahead of the one-year anniversary of the ‘insurrection’ at the US Capitol.

17.9 Control through Hidden Agendas        

Did You Know?
It recently came to light, that the Elites in the US Government, tried to hide the fact that they were financially sponsoring ‘gain of function’ research at the Wuhan Viral Laboratory in China. The place where it is now thought to be highly likely, where the COVID-19 virus originated from.

17.10 Control through Dependency

household where at least one person gets some type of government benefit.

Did You Know?
It has been said that the greatest form of control is dependency.

17.11 Control through “False Flags”         

Did You Know?
Government false flags have often been used to start wars. An example of this is the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964 when Lyndon B Johnson presented a so-called ‘unprovoked attack’ by the North Vietnamese on US forces, to start bombing raids on North Vietnam.

17.12 Control through Censorship       

Did You Know?
Canada invoked a ‘state of emergency’ to try to stop individuals from financially supporting trucker demonstrators. The Canadian government closed down their payment channels and froze their bank accounts. This is financial censorship.

17.13 Government Control through Grievance Politics        

Did You Know?
An example of grievance politics is the culture wars between those who seek the support of third parties for their grievances and those who uphold honor and dignity.
