Fearmongering As a Form of Warfare


We often think of psychological warfare as meaning disinformation.

But psyops also includes inducing and spreading fear, because fear immobilizes people more than any other emotion. We all know about false flag terror. And many people argue that the government's real reason for torturing innocent people is to spread fear and intimidation.

And we already know that the Pentagon employs bloggers to spread its propaganda (indeed, even private companies appear to do it).

I've increasingly recently run across a form of fearmongering psyops on the web. Specifically, whenever anyone posts a hopeful idea or a promising strategy for fighting tyranny, someone will post a fear-inducing comment like:

"If you sign the impeachment petition, the government will put you in its terrorist database"


"If you show up to the anti-war rally, you'll be tasered"

These kind of statements can do no possible good. Given that the Bush administration tortures innocent people, tramples on the Constitution, and spies on everyone, many people are already cowed and intimidated. What we need more of is courage and hope. Those are the qualities which will enable us to save our country.

Anyone sewing unreasonable seeds of fear is either a psyops agent or a coward who is trying to justify their own cowardice by infecting others with the virus of fear. Either way, their fearmongering should be countered with comments about the importance of courage in saving our country and with reasons to have hope that we can change things if we are committed to creating a saner world. Fear may be contagious, but so is courage and hope.

Because those trying to save our country outweigh the psyops agents by millions-to-one, we will win the battle if we take a stand for courage and against fear.

This explains

This is the ugly truth

"Those who created, implemented or covered up the U.S. torture policy are not only war criminals, they are also terrorists."

Outrage is the only proper response.

This Quote...

Or some variation of comes in handy in response to feer based types of comments about government lists etc in blogs and forums. Screw 'em. Thanks GW.

“In Germany, first they came for the Communists and I did not speak up because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak up because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the Trade Unionists and I did not speak up because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Catholics and I did not speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me - and by that time there was no one left to speak." -- Pastor Neimoller

We all need to do more.

Great point, Orangutan

Here is an updated version of Neimoller's poem I wrote to convey that point.

Being present in the now can help dispel fear.

Those tactics are either intentional, to spread the fear/control or inadvertent by those who mean well, but get caught up in the fear itself. Fear is largely based on "what if...?" and thus, what we fear is only a POSSIBLE outcome, in the future. One of INFINITE possibilities. (As a lifelong worrier, I had to learn how to choose my responses.) One of the quickest ways to stay grounded has proven to be bringing all my energy and attention into the present moment.

Fear creeps into all of us, regardless of our vigilance. We must be mindful to acknowledge it for it's lesson and work to stay grounded anyway. Sometimes we don't even recognize that it has taken hold of us. Fear will distort our perception and limit our abilities, and it is contagious as we have seen. I am not saying ignore the fear, or pretend it is not there. I am saying see it, but do not run with it. There is a certain amount of protection in staying grounded in loving intent, guided by a greater purpose. You can stare danger in the eyes and remain untouched by it. I believe this, I know this.

I stood up to a mountain lion who was charging at me through the brush because, while hiking alone on a ridge top, I unwittingly ended up between her and her baby. As soon as I noticed the baby in the brush below, she came crashing towards me from the brush above the fire road. My senses were clear, everything seemed to be in slow motion, as in a movie scene. I stood my ground and made a lot of noise. I was fully present in the moment. I knew I was in great danger and I did what I had to do to stay alive. Once she veered off from attack, I stepped sideways away from her baby and away from her, loudly, never turning my back, but putting distance between us without showing fear. I honestly didn't have time to feel fear until afterward, as adrenaline rattled my body. This story is not about me and the mountain lion. It is about finding the courage to face fear by being fully present in the moment.

The evil is insidious, yes, but throughout history courageous acts were accomplished DESPITE the fear felt by those who enacted them. Also, we do not have to face these fears alone.

Intention is everything. The way to conquer fear is to stay grounded in the moment by drawing on the power of love. Inform yourself, for knowledge IS also power, but only if you use it to serve your higher intent. Do not allow news or knowledge to use you or throw you off balance. But also, don't avoid it as many do, going through the motions of living. Embrace it!

One of the fiercest and most delicate weapons we have to conquer fear, is our ability to harness our own and our collective community's consciousness for intended positive results. I realize that meditation practice is not everyone's cup of tea. There is no wrong when it comes to holding positive conscious intent. Some call it prayer, some call it meditation. Our thoughts effect our reality. Call it serendipitous, call it synchronicity, call it a sane way to approach the day. Take a few minutes to get grounded each day, and fear will not catch up with you so easily.

Here are some sites that inspire me when fear creeps in:

I've been reading Huffpost

I've been reading Huffpost lately for the commenting. I think it is interesting to figure out who the psyop folks are. It is pretty obvious. First off, anyone who posts more than 3x a day is suspect. I sure hope the people in this country can figure this out. Anyway, I got banned from posting there. I would call people out and ask who they work for:)

Anyway, the thing that got me interested in this was as soon as Hillary conceded (and ran out of money), there was a huge drop in pro-Hillary posts. It was like all the trolls went on vacation.

Damn right!!

Multiple blog posts in a day...a possible indicator?

""If you sign the impeachment petition, the government will put you in its terrorist database"


"If you show up to the anti-war rally, you'll be tasered"

I suspect GW is close to the truth and the matter of fact delivery, I find disquieting. Is it possibly a mix and we'll see fear mongering take a leading role as we continue down this road?

If you see several blog entries in the same day then it may be a psyop? Someone had previously made this observation and possibly deserves merit?

I would add if it's an unfamiliar username as well. They'll be more and all kinds. Troy from WV is only the most obvious. Schermer is possibly a mainstream government-backed disinfo agent?

...don't believe them!
