according to myth, or cartoons, great ideas come in teh form of Thomas Edison's lightbulb

"Idea Man"

Individuals thinking on a mystical narrative level fall swiftly into the trap
of the egocentric bias when the originality of an idea is revealed through revelation.

Individuals believing they are thinking on a rational level may still fall into
the trap of the egocentric bias when the light bulb lights and an epiphany descends.

The truth is we all believe that the thoughts we have are uniquely our own.

But they may not be.

light bulb idea come from a ground source and we combine the information at our disposal to come up with an idea - a concept.

If others have the same information they will have the same ideas.

Hundreds, thousands, millions and billions of people have experienced congruent ideas or, if you will , concruent concepts, as well they have had exactly the same idea!

Example: "Am I safe ?" - asked of oneself to oneself

As these concepts are formulated in the language of the culture composing and they take on the cultural life of the people formulating them. To those within the cultural box the concepts within the culture wear the different colored robes of the cultural colleges whereas concepts from alien cultures appear dressed in gaudy or hideous circus costumes.

Those who believe that only they have ever had a light bulb coming on, experienced an epiphany, had a revelation or were struck with a vision are most likely mistaken - but that does not discount the reality of the thought construct just experienced.

The reason that the individual experienced the bulb coming on, experienced an epiphany, had a revelation or were struck with a vision have been blessed by the Creator and Sustainer with a lifting of the cognitive veil of blindness. Something deep in your subconscious finally wormed its way to the surface of consciousness !

"By passing on ideas through social interaction, by means of language, records, images, symbols, gestures, and sounds, our development has proceeded far more rapidly than by encoding particular types of information in genes. The information that can be passed on by these behavioral and cultural means is of a type that cannot be transferred by genetic inheritance. It enables learning, teaching, and knowledge to accumulate. Whereas information transfer by genetic means is limited to inheritance by the offspring of an individual, the influence of ideas and culture is limitless in its potential range. Favourable adaptations can be spread through the population very rapidly. An idea, like taking physical exercise or avoiding unhealthy food products which can be seen to enhance the chance of survival, can become a common possession almost overnight, once propagated by mass media. Cultural transmission allows detailed information about the local environment to be passed on quickly, and is essential for survival in an environment that changes more rapidly than the time interval between successive generations." - John D. Barrow

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it. Its peculiar character, too, is that no one possesses the less, because every other possesses the whole of it. He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives lights without darkening me. That ideas should freely spread from one to another over the globe, for the moral and mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his condition, seems to have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by nature, when she made them, like fire, expansible over all space, without lessening their density in any point, and like the air in which we breathe, move, and have our physical being, incapable of confinement or exclusive appropriation. Ideas then cannot, in nature, be a subject of property." - Thomas Jefferson

an light bulb idea is defined as:

ia notion; a fancy.

a plan, scheme, or method.

an opinion, conviction, or principle.

ideas are modes of thought expressed with images, symbols and words.

"The idea that man can do everything he wants at the expense of the non-man elements is a ignorant and dangerous notion." - Thich Nhat Hanh

"The perversities of transsexual triumphalism are related directly to the falsehoods of Federal Reserve trans-monetarist triumphalism, and all parties are subject to the matrix of racketeering that has taken the place of plain dealing in goods, money, and ideas in this society - especially ideas grounded in reality." - James Howard Kunstler

Ideological hegemony may not require the kind of corporate conspiracy that Karl Marx envisioned but may arise naturally from the evolutionary behavior of Wetiko memes endeavoring after their own survival.

"Americans adopted the notion that acting on principle, standing up and fighting for what one believes in, is virtuous, while changing one's mind, even on sufficient evidence, is unprincipled flip-flopping and unseemly. This surely has its foundation in the American addiction to ideology which places greater value on belief than on knowledge. Since no prominent person, especially one holding elective office, wants to be labeled "unprincipled," people are loath to change their views even when they know those views are wrong. Once they have decided that being "principled" is more important than being right, they have no inclination or desire to question the validity of their views by seeking the truth." - John Kozy

"Washington tends to enforce a foolish consistency. If you are someone of some prominence whose views are known publicly, then everything you have ever said in the past tends to be projected forward and everything you say today is projected backward. Any discrepancy potentially brings charges of flip-flopping or hypocrisy or selling-out. Certainly, these charges are valid in many cases, but the simple possibility that circumstances have changed or that experience or new evidence has caused one to change one's mind seems never to be seriously entertained. The result is to force people to stick with positions they know are wrong because they less fear being foolishly consistent than being attacked for flip-flopping." - Bruce Barlett

"An ideaist is one who, on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage,
concludes that it will also make better soup." - H.L. Mencken

"There cannot be peaceful coexistence in the ideological realm.
Peaceful coexistence corrupts." -Jiang Qing

"Washington has always needed an "ism" to fight against, an idea against which it could rally its citizens like lemmings. First, it was anarchism, then socialism, then communism. Now, it's terrorism. Any whistleblower who goes public in the name of protecting human rights or civil liberties is accused of helping the terrorists." - John Kiriakou



"The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by resistence to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent. They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office. Every man but one a subordinate clerk in a bureau. What an alluring utopia! What a noble cause to fight!" - Ludwig Von Mises

"Socialism is the phantastic younger brother of despotism, which it wants to inherit. Socialism wants to have the fullness of state force which before only existed in despotism. However, it goes further than anything in the past because it aims at the formal destruction of the individual who can be used to "improve" communities by an expedient organ of government." – Friedrich Nitzsche


"Only a large-scale popular movement toward decentralization and self-help can arrest the present tendency toward statism. A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers." - Aldous Huxley, Forward to 'Brave New World', 1932

Grant to promote Socialism:

According to the Ford Foundation Annual Report for 1951, the foundation granted $50,000 to the Advertising Council Incorporated, for "a restatement of the principles of American society."

The Advertising Council's public policy committee included, Paul Hoffman, former president of the Ford Foundation, and Chester C . Davis, its associate director, as well as several persons who have Communist-front affiliations.

The Miracle of America, a publication of the Advertising Council states that the public-policy committee of the Advertising Council approves and endorses the economic-education program of the council.

This program is described in the Miracle of America under the title "Platform for All Americans ."
This platform starts out like a firecracker Fourth of July patriotic speech and then turns out to be a rewrite of the British Labor-Socialist-Party program.

Adoption of this platform by the people guaranteed the success of Socialist legislation in America.

The Miracle of America, containing this platform, was circulated by the hundreds of thousands by the Advertising Council as a part of the campaign of public disinformation.

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism', they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without ever knowing how it happened." - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party Presidential candidate

fascist socialists

"What is the link between fascism and socialism?

They are stages on a continuum of economic control, one that begins in intervention in the free market, moves toward regimentation and greater rigidity, marches toward socialism as failures increase, and ends in dictatorship.

At first, the fascists use state spending, mainly for war, to eliminate business fluctuations. Only after they became dependent on the state do the leaders of big business and labor realize that they had merely traded consumer sovereignty for state sovereignty. Soon after they learned which one was the more exacting taskmaster.

To extend their control, the fascists bolstered fiscal expenditures with debt and monetary inflation. Not only did they hope thereby to dominate more and more industries with their expenditures, but also to boost public support for their regimes by generating economic prosperity.

Instead, their reckless spending and inflating set in motion the boom-bust cycle. They took the depression as an opportunity to extend their power further by socializing investment with regulations while claiming that such measures would stabilize the business cycle.

The fascists found a ready made theoretical justification for stabilization policies in the work of John Maynard Keynes. Keynes proposed to eliminate this instability with state control over both sides of the capital markets. A central bank with the power to inflate the money supply through credit expansion would determine the supply of capital funding and fiscal and regulatory policy would socialize the investment of capital.

The expansion of state control under fascism follows a predictable pattern. Debt and monetary inflation pays for state spending. The resulting expansion of credit leads to the boom-bust cycle. The financial collapse of the bust results in stricter regulation of banking and socialization of investment, which permits more monetary inflation, credit expansion, debt and spending.

The consequent decline in the purchasing power of money justified price and wage controls, which became the focal point of all-around fascist state centralized control and planning." - Jeffrey M. Herbener

"In the reality of socialism you have a tiny oligarchial clique at the top, usually numbering no more than three percent of the total population, controlling the total wealth, total production and the very lives of the other ninety-seven percent. Certainly even the most naive observe that Mr. Brezhnev doesn't live like one of the poor peasants out on the great Russian steppes. But, according to socialist theory, he is supposed to do just that! If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead it becomes the logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. Communism, or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite." - Gary Allen and Larry Abraham

"Socialism, as it is outlined today on the horizon of human destinies, is, according to positive statements, nothing but a crafty combination of Rabbinical precepts and of aspirations by which believers in the Talmud are bound." - Francois Trocase

"It is the Vampire alone with his bank who is their Master and rules all Europe. The Vampire with his bank is the master of education, of civilization, of Socialism above all, by means of which the Vampire is going to tear up Christianity by its roots and destroy civilization. And when nothing but anarchy remains, the Vampire will put himself at the head of all. For while propagating Socialism among all nations, the Vampires will remain united among themselves; and when the wealth of Europe is dissipated, the Vampires 's bank will remain." - Fyodor Mikhaylovich Dostoevsky 1880

"We are living in a highly organized state of socialism. The state is all; the individual is of importance only as he contributes to the welfare of the state. His property is only his as the state does not need it. He must hold his life and his possessions at the call of the state." - Bernard M. Baruch, The Knickerbocker Press, August 8, 1918

"The present program of palliative relief must give way to a program of fundamental reconstruction. American democracy must be socialized by subjecting industrial production and distribution to the will of the People's Congress. The first step is to abolish the federal veto and to enlarge the express powers of the national government through immediate constitutional amendment. A gradual march in the direction of socialization will follow." - Rabbi Victor Eppstein 1937

"One barrier to mature understanding of recent history is the notion that all capitalists are bitter unswerving enemies of all Marxists and socialists. This erroneous idea originated with Karl Marx and was undoubtedly useful to his purposes. In fact, there has been a continuing, albeit concealed, alliance between international political capitalists and international revolutionary socialists - to their mutual benefit. This alliance has gone unobserved largely because historians - with few notable exceptions - have an subconscious Marxian bias." - Antony C. Sutton

"Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao's leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history." - David Rockefeller, statement in 1973 about Mao Tse-tung in the New York Times, August 10, 1973

The Psychology of Ideology and Religion

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a “hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world central banking system, mass media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
