How To Become A Free Man.

This is how the damage is done.

Once realised, it becomes obvious how to become free.

The Parable of the Apple – or, How to control a human soul… by Stefan Molyneux

Good afternoon everybody. It is Wednesday, at about 4:27 on January the 25th. I hope you’re doing well. We are going to chat about a most exciting topic today. Not there all not exciting, but this one in particular is juicy to the point almost of being overbearing to one’s intellectual taste buds, to mix metaphors so much that I might as well put my brain on frappe.
So, the topic that I’d like to chat about today is the question of exercising power. How do you exercise power over another human being? How do you corrupt them? How do you take his natural integrity, intelligence, and all the wonder that is the human mind, and turn it against itself and get it to eat itself and get it to be sort of a snake consuming its own tail? How do you wrap people up in neuroses, and how do you make them obedient? How to get them to subjugate themselves to your will without you even having to lift a finger, barely even an eyebrow? And the reason that I want to talk about this is that I’m very interested in starting a cult. No, actually, I think you’ve got to know the weapons of your enemies if you’re going to successfully oppose them. You need to know what they are doing so that you can unravel the damage that historically we’ve all had done to us in this rather messy culture that we live in, so that we can not only begin to reverse the effects of this kind of power structure within our own minds and hearts and souls, but also so that we can help other people unravel the mess that they have become.

  1. Wow, heavy Keith.

    I have only scanned this but the concept of child mis-education is a major contention I have with authorities, who have imposed themselves on me all of my life.

    Definately programming is done mainly in schools by robotic operatives with thier curriculums and PC agendas.
    Historically, how many times has it been proven that they have done wrong ?

    I will give this my full attention and respond later.
    Another good find, and great piece of work, thanks.


  2. Keith,

    I am sure that in this scenario the child should have been told that it was a game of imagination. This is a basic excerise in story telling, to describe what is not there.

    The point is peer pressure, example that reminds me of the Canadian Freeman concept :- As we learned as children !

    An emperor of a prosperous city who cares more about clothes than military pursuits or entertainment hires two swindlers who promise him the finest suit of clothes from the most beautiful cloth. This cloth, they tell him, is invisible to anyone who was either stupid or unfit for his position. The Emperor cannot see the (non-existent) cloth, but pretends that he can for fear of appearing stupid; his ministers do the same. When the swindlers report that the suit is finished, they dress him in mime. The Emperor then goes on a procession through the capital showing off his new “clothes”. During the course of the procession, a small child cries out, “But he has nothing on!” The crowd realizes the child is telling the truth. The Emperor, however, holds his head high and continues the procession.
