“We do not have a democracy in this country we have a fake one,” Tina Louise Rothery (Green Party, UK) . In the video below she discusses with Richie Allen the possibility of fraud in the UK election. She also notes that “76% did not tick that box and vote for Cameron’s government.”
The western world is caught up in the politics of duopoly.
As Professor Carrol Quigley wrote in Tragedy and Hope, 1966, “The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy”.
The recent UK election was a “surprise”. If the opinion polls had proved accurate, the country would have had Ed Miliband as PM. The polls are probably a manipulation mechanism anyway, but why were the polls so far off? The last time polls were so inaccurate was in the 1992 election.
The people voted David Cameron back in. To remind you, this is what he said at the UN (below).
I wonder if it would be possible to sway elections by manipulation?
I draw your attention to Derren Brown (again). He is an English hypnotist, illusionist, mentalist, trickster, and television personality. (I am sure to create maximum effect he manipulates his shows. But essentially his subjects seem real, and I’m sure he does not want to jeopardize a lucrative career with fakery.)
In one of his programs, THE HEIST, he uses a motivational seminar (and documentary) to see if he can persuade four members of a group to steal £100,000 in what they believe is a genuine “armed robbery”. He uses various psychological tools, including conditioning and suggestion, to create an emotional state (of invulnerability, euphoria and aggression) that are then triggered by various stimuli, such as the colour green, and the song “Can You Feel It”.
Below is Part 5 of Brown’s program demonstrating the heist and the manipulation.
This makes anything look possible through suggestive tools. I wonder if “they” have worked out how to manipulate a small percentage of the population in this manner to ensure their preferred candidate gets into office.
