I feel it goes way deeper than guild interest though of course an institutional sense of self-belief in role that attracts status, privilege and power is a heavy bias – but can those at the top be unaware of the nature of their choices? I think not – but they may operate from a sense of self and world that effectively ‘captures’ their mind just as they seek, and to a large extent succeed, in capturing and directing the narrative of acceptable or official or mainstream belief.
For what I see is capture or usurpation of regulatory bodies, educational and media – indeed the financial system itself is a form of capture within a debt inducing system of control that links with corporate cartels that plunder wealth and resources for gratifications that evaporate while power for its own sake operates destruction and degradation.
Whether true or not there is a belief in many that eugenics never went away and population control operates under the mask of trojan beliefs that cannot be challenged without penalty. Indeed many cannot even think on or consider such ‘no go’ areas by induced self-censorship or simply recoil from a sense of horror – for if you don’t ‘go there’ you can carry on as if you don’t know and are not complicit or subject to what is essentially a kind of mind-control operating through or upon our unconscious psychic emotional conditionings.
The idea that the system or society is insane and so will treat non conformity as insanity – (which is now equated with physical disease) – like a heresy under the rule of dogma – for science has been no less captured in the patterning of a ruse it did not disclose or illuminate – but has managed to hide even more deeply.
This patterning is not unknown to us but calling it ‘psychology’ frames it in dissociations and rationalisations of ‘define and control’ that suits a ‘pharmaceutical management’ of life-defined-as-sickness – whereas calling it psychic-emotional conflict and fragmentation suggests more relational participance and therefore potential for awakening responsibility. This is a challenge for growth and not just a quick way to feel more secure – that can capture in addiction and consolidate patterns of belief that make it more difficult to challenge or be curious in relation to the issues that are underlying the difficulty.
The core ‘define and control’ facet of narrative control that is part of every personality structure is our largely unconscious acquired beliefs that are the embodiment of conditioning or past experience. These are often held in society to be fixed conditions – in other words ‘Reality’; the world, and the way things work.
There is always another way of looking at whatever is felt dissonant and the willingness to let this in, is a significant step.

The economic and political structure tends to define and frame perceived self interest so as to result in mind-share/market capture – and all of that is a form of mind control. The ideas generally under the heading of mind-control range from social engineering, PR, and narrative control – through to extremes such as MKUltra via the fragmentation of personality to program triggerable responses of otherwise suppressed or unconscious personality. In any case the nature of the control is coercive deceit.
Socialisation includes mind-control in all manner of ways – as part of induction and adaptation to a society predicated upon it as the means of the suppression of the feeling being and the limiting of consciousness to forms of substitution for genuine presence – and diversion from the inherent dissonance of a conflicted sense that becomes ‘unconscious’ while leaking out as undercurrent communication.
Coercion and deceit are part of the masking persona with which we become identified as our thinking – our core beliefs and accepted self-definitions which predicate our economic, political and social structures.
So an inability to maintain the mask of a kind of a mind-control already operating meets the energetics of guilted fear that operates a self-reinforcing negative. Now this is as true for the psychiatrist as the politician as the corporate, as the banker as the one whose life ‘falls apart’ or whose ‘reality breaks down’ or whose psychic-emotional conflicts overwhelm their capacity to manage their lives on their current basis.
