Terminology note:
Today Mind control or brainwashing in academia is commonly referred to as coercive persuasion, coercive psychological systems or coercive influence. The short description below comes from Dr. Margaret Singer professor emeritus at the University of California at Berkeley the acknowledged leading authority in the world on mind control and cults. a short overviewCoercion is defined by the American Heritage Dictionary as:1. To force to act or think in a certain manner
2. To dominate, restrain, or control by force
3. To bring about by force.
Coercive psychological systems are behavioral change programs which use psychological force in a coercive way to cause the learning and adoption of an ideology or designated set of beliefs, ideas, attitudes, or behaviors. The essential strategy used by the operators of these programs is to systematically select, sequence and coordinate many different types of coercive influence, anxiety and stress-producing tactics over continuous periods of time. In such a program the subject is forced to adapt in a series of tiny “invisible” steps. Each tiny step is designed to be sufficiently small so the subjects will not notice the changes in themselves or identify the coercive nature of the processes being used. The subjects of these tactics do not become aware of the hidden organizational purpose of the coercive psychological program until much later, if ever. These tactics are usually applied in a group setting by well intentioned but deceived “friends and allies” of the victim. This keeps the victim from putting up the ego defenses we normally maintain in known adversarial situations. The coercive psychological influence of these programs aim to overcome the individual’s critical thinking abilities and free will – apart from any appeal to informed judgment. Victims gradually lose their ability to make independent decisions and exercise informed consent. Their critical thinking, defenses, cognitive processes, values, ideas, attitudes, conduct and ability to reason are undermined by a technological process rather than by meaningful free choice, rationality, or the inherent merit or value of the ideas or propositions being presented. How Do They Work?The tactics used to create undue psychological and social influence, often by means involving anxiety and stress, fall into seven main categories.TACTIC 1Increase suggestibility and “soften up” the individual through specific hypnotic or other suggestibility-increasing techniques such as: Extended audio, visual, verbal, or tactile fixation drills, Excessive exact repetition of routine activities, Sleep restriction and/or Nutritional restriction.Television talk shows, Daily News Programs, Ads on Television and Radio, Movies, Social Media, Youtube; etc.  ALL are pushing the Lies and Fake News Programming of the Elite, constantly, 24/7.TACTIC 2Establish control over the person’s social environment, time and sources of social support by a system of often-excessive rewards and punishments. Social isolation is promoted. Contact with family and friends is abridged, as is contact with persons who do not share group-approved attitudes. Economic and other dependence on the group is fostered.LOCKDOWNS, controlling when and where and how you can travel and/or interact with other human beings.  Limiting or Prohibiting gatherings with family and friends.  Prohibiting Church Meetings, Prayer Groups, Bible Studies, Athletic Activities, Social Gatherings, Clubs and Bars.  Finally, they have us unable to support ourselves and we are forced to look to our controllers for EVERYTHING.

Prohibit disconfirming information and non supporting opinions in group communication. Rules exist about permissible topics to discuss with outsiders. Communication is highly controlled. An “in-group” language is usually constructed.

Unbelievably, in the land of the FREE we suddenly have NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH.  We have to be careful not to use any words that are prohibited on any given topic or face fines and even arrest. WHO WOULD HAVE IMAGINED THAT WOULD EVER BE POSSIBLE HERE??


Make the person re-evaluate the most central aspects of his or her experience of self and prior conduct in negative ways. Efforts are designed to destabilize and undermine the subject’s basic consciousness, reality awareness, world view, emotional control and defense mechanisms. The subject is guided to reinterpret his or her life’s history and adopt a new version of causality.

They are rewriting our history, erasing our Nation’s past, undermining our moral ethics, destroying faith and belief in our religion, shaming us for any number of topics.  Causing people to be ashamed and feel guilty just for being born.


Create a sense of powerlessness by subjecting the person to intense and frequent actions and situations which undermine the person’s confidence in himself and his judgment.

They are taking away everything that gave us the ability to care for ourselves and our families.  Causing us to feel hopeless, useless, frustrated and powerless.  They have taken our jobs, many of us our homes, our car, and some of us have been quarantined, placed in camps or incarcerated taking away all our freedom.


Create strong aversive emotional arousals in the subject by use of nonphysical punishments such as intense humiliation, loss of privilege, social isolation, social status changes, intense guilt, anxiety, manipulation and other techniques.

These lockdowns and all the rules and regulations associated with them have brought everyone of those into our lives.  humiliation, loss of privilege, isolation, change in social status, guilt, anxiety.  They are totally manipulating us in every way possible.


Intimidate the person with the force of group-sanctioned secular psychological threats. For example, it may be suggested or implied that failure to adopt the approved attitude, belief or consequent behavior will lead to severe punishment or dire consequences such as physical or mental illness, the reappearance of a prior physical illness, drug dependence, economic collapse, social failure, divorce, disintegration, failure to find a mate, etc.  

If you have not experienced or witness this, you must be living under a rock somewhere.  They have so many people totally brainwashed into believing all this is necessary and prudent that they are turning on their neighbors and friends.  Become the abusers and shaming people, attacking people even killing people for not falling in line.


These tactics of psychological force are applied to such a severe degree that the individual’s capacity to make informed or free choices becomes inhibited. The victims become unable to make the normal, wise or balanced decisions which they most likely or normally would have made, had they not been unknowingly manipulated by these coordinated technical processes. The cumulative effect of these processes can be an even more effective form of undue influence than pain, torture, drugs or the use of physical force and physical and legal threats.

How does Coercive Psychological Persuasion Differ from Other Kinds of Influence? Coercive psychological systems are distinguished from benign social learning or peaceful persuasion by the specific conditions under which they are conducted. These conditions include the type and number of coercive psychological tactics used, the severity of environmental and interpersonal manipulation, and the amount of psychological force employed to suppress particular unwanted behaviors and to train desired behaviors.

Coercive force is traditionally visualized in physical terms. In this form it is easily definable, clear-cut and unambiguous. Coercive psychological force unfortunately has not been so easy to see and define. The law has been ahead of the physical sciences in that it has allowed that coercion need not involve physical force. It has recognized that an individual can be threatened and coerced psychologically by what he or she perceives to be dangerous, not necessarily by that which is dangerous.

Law has recognized that even the threatened action need not be physical. Threats of economic loss, social ostracism and ridicule, among other things, are all recognized by law, in varying contexts, as coercive psychological forces.

Why are Coercive Psychological Systems Harmful? Coercive psychological systems violate our most fundamental concepts of basic human rights. They violate rights of individuals that are guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and affirmed by many declarations of principle worldwide.

By confusing, intimidating and silencing their victims, those who profit from these systems evade exposure and prosecution for actions recognized as harmful and which are illegal in most countries such as: fraud, false imprisonment, undue influence, involuntary servitude, intentional infliction of emotional distress, outrageous conduct and other tortuous acts.

Bringing Up the Rear Guard: China Unveils Anal Swab COVID-19 Test

Xiao Yijiu/Xinhua via AP
Most Awkward Drive-Up COVID Test EVER

The jokes are writing themselves at a furious pace now.

I would like to say that this post is supposed to be tongue-in-cheek but:

a) there’s actual news here and

b) it’s nigh on impossible to avoid stepping in double entendre with this one.

China has decided to tackle the problem of iffy, unreliable coronavirus tests by coming at it from another angle and it’s one that isn’t making the already beleaguered Chinese citizenry very happy.

The Washington Post:

SEOUL — Months-long lockdowns. Entire city populations herded through the streets for mandatory testing. The people of China could be forgiven for thinking they had seen it all during the coronavirus pandemic.

But now they face a new indignity: the addition of anal swabs — yes, you read that right — to the testing regimen for those in quarantine.

Chinese state media outlets introduced the new protocol in recent days, prompting widespread discussion and some outrage. Some Chinese doctors say the science is there. Recovering patients, they say, have continued to test positive through samples from the lower digestive tract days after nasal and throat swabs came back negative.

If there is a way to make virtually anything more painful and humiliating, leave it to the commies to figure it out. If you think about it, this situation here is a rather fitting analog (partial pun most definitely intended) for the entire hoi polloi  experience under communism.


It would appear that China is running COVID quarantine humiliation gulags:

Even Chinese doctors in support of the new tests said the method’s inconvenience meant it only made sense to use in select groups, such as at quarantine centers.

“If we add anal swab testing, it can raise our rate of identifying infected patients,” Li Tongzeng, an infectious-disease specialist at Beijing You’an Hospital, said on state-run broadcaster CCTV on Sunday. “But of course considering that collecting anal swabs is not as convenient as throat swabs, at the moment only key groups such as those in quarantine receive both.”

That’s right, you can get the simulated frontal lobotomy nasal swab and then turn around and bend over for the full communism immersion experience at Club Wuhan! Drinks included!

The Chinese people are no doubt tired of being the, um, butt of COVID jokes. This news certainly isn’t helping.

My biggest worry now is that our new puppet president’s handlers will find out about this and encourage him to indulge his mandate fetish. Right now this probably just seems like more of my penchant/coping mechanism for making everything absurd. I’ll remind you of that in a month when President Gropes decrees that conservatives are only allowed to travel with proof of a recent negative anal swab test.  Administered by TSA.

Have a lovely rest of your day.

China’s Zero-Tolerance Covid Tactics Now Include Anal Swabs

  • Schoolchildren, teachers in Beijing tested with new method
  • Officials are fixated on rooting out all vestiges of the virus

While there’s no nationwide policy on use of the technique, some residents in China’s northern regions — where more than 1,700 cases have emerged — have been subjected to the swabs with little warning. The method involves the insertion of a saline-soaked cotton swab about two-to-three centimeters into the anus, with the sample then tested for active traces of the virus.

More than 1,000 schoolchildren and teachers in Beijing were given anal, throat and nose swabs last week, along with a separate antibody test, after one asymptomatic virus case was detected on campus, according to local officials.   (All that for a virus that has a 90 -95% recovery rate.  Sounds like overkill to me.)

Nucleic Acid Testing In Beijing

Scientists have found that some Covid-19 patients have active and prolonged gut viral infection, even if they don’t manifest gastrointestinal symptoms. For such people, stool samples often test positive even a week after their respiratory samples have gone negative, researchers from the Chinese University of Hong Kong found.

We don’t tolerate the virus circulating. Once we find it, we immediately quash it and outbreaks are not allowed,” said Lu Hongzhou, an infectious disease physician who advises both the central and Shanghai governments on Covid-19 treatment.

“Our country has always pursued this strategy and it can’t be adjusted.”
