In the video below, the KGB defector says that marketing is a form of subversion. It forces people to consume more than is good for them i.e. it is ‘mind-rape’ of the consumer.
This is one of the mechanisms that is taught to the KGB as a means for destabilising our society. I personally feel that this may be true.
Our society has accumulated massive debts in order to consume more.
Debt is a form of slavery – we have to work within the system (many for a minimum wage) in order to repay the creditor for our excessive consumption. The creditor therefore has power over the debtor, who can easily be put into immediate crisis simply by increasing the interest rate on the debt.
As a self-employed entrepreneur and former banker, I have been debt-free for the last 20 years. I have exercised restraint to ensure that I am not too enslaved to the system – to some degree we are all enslaved, it is just a question of degree.
This is also relevant to the goal of personal freedom. By exercising some restraint in what we buy, or think we need in order to live a good life, it reduces the amount of income required to obtain freedom from working a job. It is much easier to achieve an income goal of £1,500 or £2,000 a month rather than, say, £10,000 per month.
I can clearly see how marketing, and many of the other ways of destabilising our culture and society, that are discussed in this video, have been employed successfully in the UK, Europe and the US.
For example, our membership of the EU was effectively giving away our democratic rights to 28 un-elected EU commissioners.
Also, the media has been taken over by the liberal left in order to de-stabilise our society – this has been recently highlighted by the US election and the Trump campaign against the liberal Democrats and the Globalisation agenda. The BBC news is also very biased to the liberal left in the UK.
The split in the EU referendum last June, where many young people, the elites and the new immigrant population largely voted to Remain in the EU, whereas the older, indigenous working and middle-class population voted to Leave, demonstrates the degree to which our UK society has already been subverted using the tactics outlined in this video.
I think that everyone needs to view this video in order to understand a little bit more about what is really going on in our society.
His comment about marketing is around the 25 minute marker and I will leave you to decide whether or not marketing is a form of subversion so you can be a little clearer about what business we are really in… After viewing this video, it will be difficult for me to ask you to ‘buy my junk’ even if it does show you how to make more money in order to consume more! 🙂
