For some reason this 10 month old post feels very timely. We have the US openly supporting terrorists in Syria- in order to destroy yet another nation.
We have the establishment of an "official" base of operation in Israel along with the new Iron Dome battery becoming operationalI shudder to think where this might be heading.........................
Briefly revisiting the January post:
I wrote about the psychology of influence.
Personally speaking here. I've never been a believer in "the Donald" as the leader of any sort of grassroots/populist movement. Nor do I buy the common presentation of the media being opposed to him. I'm also not a fan of the whole 'deep state' is against Mr Trump. I see the psychology of influence at play. Link
The response to scarcity is, like the other weapons of influence, often a shortcut which usually pays dividends. And we are prompted to react because a missed opportunity is a loss of freedom.Donald Trumps Slogan "Make American Great, Again"
American's would loathe the missed opportunity of making America great, again
The theory of psychological reactance developed by Jack Brehm states that "whenever free choice is limited or threatened, the need to retain our freedoms makes us desire them (as well as the goods and services associated with them) significantly more than previously" (245). We react against anything that threatens to limit our freedoms. A plexiglas barrier placed between 2-year old boys and a toy prompted them to make special efforts to obtain that toy rather than another one without a barrier.The media created the plexiglass barrier and the masses reacted
After the initial intro a lengthy article and interview from William Engdahl was included.
Engdahl: "I state clearly my conviction, and please recall this as Trump Presidency policies unfold after January 20, 2017 to see if I am correct or not: Donald Trump was put into office to prepare America for war, a war the banks of Wall Street and the US military industrial complex are not presently in a position economically or industrially or otherwise, geopolitically, to win. His job will be to reposition the United States for them to reverse the trend to disintegration of American global hegemony, to, as the Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz Project for the New American Century put it in their September, 2000 report, “rebuild America’s defenses.”Donald Trump was put into office to prepare America for war......
That is one way that Trump can"make America great again" Rally around the flag. Fire the rhetoric and get the emotions flowing. Hell, an idea of making America great, a belief in making American great can substitute for really, truly making America great.
Healing the sick culture. Healing families. Real healthcare. Not sickness creation and profiteering. Strong people. Healthy people. Cohesion. That what makes a nation strong.
Trump never promised any of that. He uttered feel good phrases and little more
You can revisit that old post? Or not. It's your choice entirely. I, however, would feel remiss if attention wasn't drawn to that specific information at this specific time.
