    How do you change the way people think? You start by changing the words they use. TACTICAL?
    In countries where the police state hides behind a benevolent mask and disguises itself as tolerance, the citizens censor themselves, policing their words and thoughts to conform to the dictates of the mass mind…….Don’t blow your own mind thinking about this now.. This article is directed towards anti-GUN. Even when the motives behind this rigidly calibrated reorientation of societal language appear well-intentioned—discouraging racism, condemning violence, denouncing discrimination and hatred—inevitably, the end result is the same: intolerance, indoctrination and infantilism. If you don’t know what I’m talking about look it up and wake up.

    Another STORY WITH THE WORD “TACTICAL” (2) NOW. It’s so easy to see how they are steering–to work up or arouse the readers! Even when the motives behind this rigidly calibrated reorientation of societal language appear well-intentioned—discouraging racism, condemning violence, denouncing discrimination and hatred—inevitably, the end result is the same: intolerance, indoctrination and infantilism. They want you to feel “pathos” the story, persuade you to feel scared and insecure. How do you change the way people think? You start by changing the words they use. High fear threat, real or not, creates security psychosis in Americans, which means they are delusional about what is really going on
