Challenging the system
Resisting persuasion: Going passively along "on automatic" is often our worst enemy. When we habitually take simple assumptions for granted in a setting, we fail to check out the reality. The following are suggestions for awareness and resistance:
Mind control typically involves coming to accept a new reality. We are often dissuaded from probing beyond surface illusions of meaningfulness by letting symbols substitute for reality, abstract maps for concrete territories.
Many of the most powerfully persuasive appeals are based on making people afraid or anxious. The following are suggestions for reducing this influence:
Once aware that their prey is bagged, the slickest operators then emphasize the victim's freedom of choice, after tactfully constraining the alternatives. The new persuaded person chooses "freely" while the influencer bolsters his or her decision.
Alternatively, the persuader may deliberately provoke your reaction in the desired direction. Some helpful hints:
Persuaders bring us to their place of power, separate the good or aware "us" from the evil, ignorant "them," and then proceed to limit our access to ideas that they find heretical, traitorous, or not in their best interests.
When we are isolated from outside information, it is impossible to make unbiased decisions.
When we come to believe so thoroughly in our favorite concepts that we begin to hate those who don't share our views, to develop rehearsed, programmatic responses to discrediting arguments, and to acknowledge only ideas stated within our terminology, it may be time to make our belief systems a little more permeable. Some suggested tactics:
Challenging the system:The tighter a system is, the more likely that minor challenges will be met with retaliation. In religious or political cults, and so on, people have virtually total control over the existence of others. Threats to that power are intolerable. Even systems that appear less authoritarian may wield comparable punishments onto dissidents. For this reason, it's often more practical to challenge systems from outside, especially by forming other systems. Some final suggestions:

The Sexual Misery program is to intentionally reverse, distort, manipulate and abuse the sexual energies, therefore abuse the spiritual energies, in human beings incarnated on this planet. It is intended to create sexual predators and sexual deviance in the human race, mostly people that have addiction issues that are easily harvested in Reversal Networks for their sexual energy.
