One type of mind control involves defeating logic as a method of thinking.

Modern formulations of basic logic begin with the statement: You can't have A and not -A. Which is a way of saying contradictions are unacceptable.

So it's no surprise that mind control attempts to introduce contradictions into rational processes.

You see this in propaganda.

For example: People who are vaccinated are in danger from those who are unvaccinated. ("Keep your unvaccinated child away from my vaccinated child.")

There is a concealed contradiction here. You can see it by merely defining (according to conventional terms) the meaning of "vaccinated."

It means "immune," "protected from contracting the disease targeted by the vaccine."

But if the vaccinated person is protected and immune, then coming into contact with an unvaccinated person will bring no danger.

Therefore, the notion that vaccinated people are A) protected but not -A) in danger is absurd, a contradiction.

The easiest way to defeat logic is through deficient education. Never teach logic. Ignore it. Instead, teach specific values. Teach anything except logic. Don't teach children how to spot contradictions.

A deficient education plus tons of ceaseless propaganda equals mind control.

Logic is a significant problem for people who want a closed and unfree society. Teaching logic tends to produce sharp and independent minds.

Logic produces personal power.

Here is another example of non-logic: A ballot initiative passed by the voters of Maui County is illegal, because it set up a new law regarding commercial agriculture, when in fact commercial agriculture is regulated by state and federal laws, which trump county laws.

Jon, I really like this article. If you don't teach kids logic and how to be logical, they won't know how to think; at least about logical things. And most things can and should be thought about using logic; at least if you want to come up with the correct answer.

The mind is basically a computer. For a computer to always come up with the right answer the software needs to be written based on solid logic. For the mind to always, or at least most of the time, come up with the correct answer it also needs to be based on solid logic. But if the mind has not been trained to use logic properly, it will often come up with a wrong answer. If it comes up with a correct answer, it by and large is often simply happenstance.

I think therefore I am. If kids are not taught how to think they might as well say, I think therefore I might be.

We also have to simply study and learn about the art of propaganda and how our emotions are used and abused starting with early media and so-called education. In this way, we will not simply be swimming in an ocean that we don't recognize as such, i.e. until it is too late.

If the mind is to be compared to a computer, then propaganda would be a virus.

And, no matter how logically the applications are written, they can still succumb to an infection. That's why an "antivirus" is needed.

The antivirus here is the full awareness of propaganda, its execution methods, its goals, etc.

As a teacher of many years, I agree with article but the title has a double entendre. Unless you attended it as such, perhaps you could change it.

I noticed that as well. The way it's worded could be interpreted as saying "propaganda is an art that uses overwhelming logic".

Should have said something like "Propaganda is the Art of Undermining the Foundations of Logic", or something like that.
