|Chanting "Allahu Akbar" has impact in mobs.|
The BBC recently posted this short video that you may find interesting:
In it, it shows the expectation of the brain and some of the insight we have on the millions of millions of processing that the brain does. It is a marvel of creative engineering beyond our limits of science to date.
Even as we learn more, we recognize the vastness of the unknown.
What is the impact of language upon behavior?
When a student curses at a teacher, there is a distinct change within the classroom that is not conducive to learning. When this is excused as "cultural", there is gain and there is loss. The gain is by the politician or elitist who uses this to appear to be more "moral" than others.
The loss is the students' learning and future earnings.
1. Language has an physiological effect upon the hearer. Simply tell someone that they have won the lottery and watch their pulse quicken. There is an emotional impact, and there is a physical impact. The same goes for, "give me your money!" in a hold up.
Consider the physiological impact of three simple words upon a child. These words can impact the child's immune system, psychological well-being and even his or her later success in life.
"I love you."
Consider how these three words, spoken in childhood, may impact the adult's immune system for 70 years onward.
This is, in a sense, to show a reaction in just one person. What is the effect upon a crowd?
2. Language Enforcement. Today, the same moral elitists has constructed laws regarding "hate speech" or "hate crime", as if sticking a gun in someone's stomach and stealing his money is somehow worse if you use a slur to accompany it.
The only gain here is to the politician who exploits victims of crime for political advantage: virtue signaling.
Two hockey players slug it out, brutally pounding each other's face.
Consequence? Law and order may be restored to the ice.
Yet, if one of them whispers a specific word to the other, a word that a politician condemns (but loves), expect:
1. A lengthy suspension
2. Loss of income
3. Condemnation from ownership
4. Condemnation from press
5. Possible dramatic career impact for player and his family, including being traded, unsigned, etc.
The loss is societal and myriad. Everything from the tyranny of "thought policing" to the additional court and legal costs, to the racist application right down to Canada's attempt to implement Sharia blasphemy laws which outlaw criticizing a criminal supremacist ideology. This is similar to armies prosecuting soldiers for "hate speech", as if they should watch their words before killing the enemy.
Today in colleges across America, free speech is all but eradicated. The assault upon speakers who disagree with the political elite's narrative are not only shouted down, but worse: emotions churn leading to violence.
Most striking is the attack on masculinity and how male collegians are in need of "safe spaces", that is, a psychological position of always being agreed with. These young men become unhinged at the possibility of disagreement and react emotionally. The idea of the university being a place of the free collision of ideas is as foreign as basic mathematics are to the students. It is here, perhaps, that the power of main stream media is most realized. Readers here cannot imagine Statement Analysis being defended by claims of racism, phobia, immorality
3. Language impact upon behavior.
Consider the classroom where one student openly curses at his teacher. Now consider what the impact upon the class is when no punitive action is taken: the single act of disrespect will now place the teacher in a position of vulnerability. With no punishment meted out, other students prone to rebellion will pick up the pace, while the more respectful students now view the teacher with a subtle contempt, or in the last, a lack of respect.
Now take this and move it to two more scenarios:
a. With police, what impact is upon society where a 12 year old boy can walk up to a police officer and call him vile names? I often revisit the themes of America's two most under paid professions: law enforcement and teaching. The lack of respect police received from the White House for 8 years directly led to deaths. How did it begin?
Barak Obama used words to send a signal to police throughout the country, that would be consistently increasing for his 8 years: blame.
Police were to blame for the arrests of blacks and it began in a simple arrest in New England where, without any fact known, the police officer was condemned with implied racism. The great divide began.
When a violent criminal was shot by a police officer (who is no longer a police officer and may not be alive today if not for his defensive use of lethal force) a lie emerged where politicians quickly embraced claiming the suspect put up his hands and said, "don't shoot."
Eventually the investigation and testimony of witnesses proved this to be a fabrication but this mattered little for the politicians who would benefit from the lies. Being elected because one is seen as "more virtuous" or "more moral" than his opponent, even when it is based upon a lie, gives us insight into a character who is willing, literally, that blood be shed in trade for votes.
Here, no matter where you are politically, listen to the arguments. This short video is regarding an organization who's genesis is deception.
What comes from the corrupt communication?
What currency exchange results from counterfeit currency?
Yet, what of the boys witnessing the 12 year old telling the officer that he has sex with his own mother?
Consider the danger of the lack of respect of authority, in general, not only to those boys witnesses this, but then to their friends, and their friends' friends.
b. Military. Consider the risk to lives and even national security when contempt for military begins verbally.
As confidence is eroded verbally, in a leader, those who's lives may depend upon trust, is not brought in question.
4. Language impact upon morals.
Sexual grooming often begins with words.
The perpetrator uses words to introduce, desensitize and eventually exploit his victim. He may introduce other methods and today, television makes this easy for him, as moral codes from the Golden Era of Hollywood have been replaced. What was shocking in the 80's brings a yawn to a desensitized culture today.
It was once said that the relationship between a man and woman was so vital to society's generational success that it was best guarded in the legal form of marriage.
Exploitation was guarded against, by society mores, and not politicians.
One only need to watch a couple insult each other, as good-natured teasing can easily lead to passive-aggressive insult, undermining a foundation of respect which can reach its breaking point.
On Facebook, astute readers can almost predict divorces based upon the level of public adoration one spouse places upon another. Those who describe their lives, for example, in unrealistic glowing terms are often those most hurting, or near the precipice of default.
Scott Peterson, after murdering his wife and child, described his marriage, as "glorious."
Even within intimate and positive relationships, a few undisciplined words can bring much harm. Of incessant talkers, it is guaranteed unless self restraint can be habitualized, but one must be cognizant of this to even begin to facilitate change.
5. Mob Violence
When laws are discarded routinely, there is always an increase in crime and violence.
Historically, the American War for Independence was not a "revolution" in the modern sense of the word. It was a resistance movement in which the conscience was appealed to, and the refusal to submit to tyranny (years before "Common Sense" sold in any significant numbers in America) was that a governmental body that did not have legal jurisdiction was interfering with a man's duty (not right, nor privilege) to provide for his family. This resistance, reluctant to disobey law, was a necessity, as the foreign unrelated parliament used coercive means to extort. The language of the Declaration of Independence is heavy in wording to show respect for the rule of law.
When laws are not enforced, crime increases.
When crimes increase, so does the danger to police.
For police, the "Ferguson Effect" has meant self preservation.
For citizens of such cities, it means increased criminal violence. The only beneficiaries are politicians.
What is a "sanctuary city"?
It is where a poor, hardworking Mexican women with their children are hiding in a church, as to not be deported by a cruel and heartless government?
In Texas, it means that murderers, rapists, thieves and other criminals who's record precludes them from gainful employment in Mexico, can run to a new county, and be paid money to do nothing.
A question that needs to be asked:
Why does the nation of Mexico object to a border wall?
A nation can only exist when it is a nation of laws, no different than any other human organization. When respect for the rule of law is downgraded, criminal behavior is upgraded. If it should continue, including the suspension of mathematics, the result is what we are seeing in Venezuela. This nation moved decade after decade into socialism; where the government was responsible for the people which meant:
Each newly elected politician must promise more.
The "more" must be paid for, so it is dependent upon not only never ending increases of taxes, but upon population growth.
Bankruptcy, poverty, and violence will be the repetition of history.
Laws of Immigration.
People who have immigrated to the United States have done so, historically, in a legal and orderly fashion.
My family did.
They needed to assert that they would be a benefit to the United States, not a drain.
In my neighborhood in New York, immigrants were known for purchasing and flying the American flag. They made no demands, but came to contribute. They embraced citizenship. As a boy in our Bicentennial year of 1976, if you told me that Americans would have to apologize for wearing the American flag in America I would have considered it humor. This is a distinctive point in just how successful the psychological warfare has been: you apologize for being you.
Words have power to change behavior.
Millions of people now say things that they believed to the contrary for their entire lives.
Because politicians told them to.
They fell for the "virtue signaling" and feared being "left out" of the "new moralism."
This also echoes national socialism's early attraction.
Nations are now learning that being a welfare state and not having borders cannot be sustained in spite of the cheerleading of the elite and the unthinking masses and media who fall in line.
We routinely suspend drivers licenses for habitual minor offenses. Why? Because it shows a disregard for law, in general. This is a pattern that society has long recognized as a danger. It is why small, and sometimes even arbitrary rules are used in schooling, education and military: it builds a disciplined mentality.
Chicago calls itself a "sanctuary city" where its citizens (those who have not left) are in harm's way because its political leadership is "more moral" than the rule of law and has become a "sanctuary city" for criminals. Under single party rule for decades, on every level, it grows in both danger and in debt, month after month, as its schools teach their children how to remain in victim status so as to guarantee single party rule continues. People do not vote against their own "entitlements."
Its laws against guns are as strict as can be and the result is few law abiding citizens can protect themselves.
It appears that criminals shooting each other are not registering guns, nor taking firearm safety courses.
Its police are out numbered, exhausted, underpaid, demoralized and have been demonized by the political elite.
It does not take much to see the psychology of mob violence take over. Words are used to enflame emotion which leads to violence.
Today we see deliberate attempts to lead political rallies into violence with paid protesters deliberately using provocative speech.
When one feels so morally superior to another that he or she cannot even "abide" a difference in opinion, we are headed towards violence. This form of moral narcissism is so popular today that it controls millions of people, like a psychological warfare more successful than most would ever have believed.
When emotion overrules logic, the result is bankruptcy of both accounts and ideas.
Women's rights groups lobby in favor of Islamic tarrusch.
Animal rights groups lobby for the sale of body parts by Planned Parenthood.
In the name of free speech, organizations named after "liberty" lobby against free speech.
As anti-fascists, fascist techniques of coercion are employed in protest at colleges and public settings.
A man who asserts he is a man is a bigot.
Yesterday, California's drought is the result of global warming but today's California's floods are the result of global warming.
The former vice president of the United States says ISIS was created by global warming.
The cost of psychological warfare?
Psychological warfare in the United States has now echoed what we saw in Nazi Germany with the obedient press, school system and elite's imposition of "new morality", with science be damned.
A Jew's blood was different than a German's and we'll break the microscope if we must.
It may lead to civil war in America and Europe which is something now commonly spoken about, but beneath this,
Freedom of speech continues to erode.
Threats are followed by violence as the political elite inspire to do so. The talk of "now uniting under the democratically elected president" is gone, replaced with distinct calls to violence, including "blood in the streets" while being funded by billionaire anarchists.
Urban flight, urban debt and urban crime continue its pattern and impact.
In some locales, police are understaffed.
In all locales police are underpaid.
How routine is it for those who live in risk must hold second jobs?
"White privilege" is leading a downward trend in life expectancy of whites, while giving an increase to suicide.
Urban schools continue to churn money over racist curriculum.
College students turn violent rather than exchange ideas.
Questions are limited due to fear of answers.
Evil communication corrupts good behavior.
We often study the words to know what happened, but we also study the words to learn what is likely to happen.
The incivility exampled from the political elite continues through celebrities and to through media.
Perhaps the most classic example is the CNN Report
"Residents Try To Heal" regarding rioting from the sister of the armed person shot by police.
“Burnin down shit ain’t going to help nothin! Y’all burnin’ down shit we need in our community."
CNN reported that she was trying to stop the rioting. Here is the quote without CNN editing:
“Burnin down shit ain’t going to help nothin! Y’all burnin’ down shit we need in our community.
Take that shit to the suburbs. Burn that shit down! We need our shit! We need our weaves. I don’t wear it. But we need it.”
Is an edit like this any different than Dr. Josef Goebels?
