The Bigger Picture

on . Posted in A Woman's Point of View

By Lee Parker

The rubble has settled. The rescue efforts continue. Millions of tons of waste has to be removed and the country watches.

We watch as our citizens cry over what once was. The World Trade Center twin towers once were. Fire and policemen once were. Employees working at the World Trade Center once were. There is no argument that life in these united States of America has changed.

My concern is that the coming changes will not be in the best interests of the Citizens. I anticipate that we will be faced with increasing restrictions on our individual and personal freedoms. My concern is that Americans will not see the bigger picture; that they will not recognize the limitations to our individual freedoms, in the form of new mandates designed to increase their safety. Or worse, that they won’t care. My concerns are that Americans will surrender their constitutionally protected rights in favor of unattainable security.

Have you ever heard of The Hegelian Principle? This philosophical and psychological mechanism was originally developed by Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831) and has been successfully used for centuries as a tool to control large populations.

The Hegelian dialectic works in three parts. Part one is to create a sense of urgency and uncertainty. Today, “terrorism” is the urgency that the government is highlighting. Yesterday, it was the “War on Drugs” or the “War on Guns”.

Part two involves manipulating the population into an emotional froth through the use of mass communication techniques (media). All you need to do is turn on your mass programmer - the television - and you will see the manipulation in process. As a population becomes more mob-like in its fear of the unknown, the government closes the trap by introducing part three; complete control through passing of legislation to solve the “problem” and save the people from their fears.

The smaller picture is our individual fear and emotionalism. It is our personal reaction to the horrendous events of September 11, 2001. It is not that our emotions are unimportant, but rather that they are emotions and are therefore subject to manipulation. Our reactions during an emotional episode eliminate the mental process of logic and reason. The government can control an emotional population easier than a thoughtful one.

Always and forever, the bigger picture is the restriction of our personal and individual liberties. The federal government has and always will try to restrict our liberties with our consent by passing intrusive laws for which emotional support exists, but that would otherwise never pass. They will use any situation to stir the pot of emotionalism and then use that same emotionalism to achieve effective enslavement of the people.

We cannot guard against encroachments on our God-given freedoms while we are caught in the Hegelian vise of manipulation. It is necessary that each of us step away from his or her emotional frenzy and think about what is really occurring.

Fear, hatred, panic, uncertainty are all tools of the ego and the devil. These emotions will keep us stuck in the manipulation of the moment and not allow us the ability to look at the bigger picture. Each among us must let go of the pain and fear s/he is now feeling and stand guard against those who would rule through emotional manipulation, lies and deceit. If we don’t maintain our vigilance against the terrorism we find in the federal government as it strips away our God-given liberties, then we will lose the war for freedom.
