Pavlov's people

Ivan Pavlov, a Russian physiologist who won a Nobel Prize in 1904, developed a conditioning theory based on his experiments with dogs.

Pavlov presented dogs with a ringing bell followed by food. The food elicited salivation and after repeated bell-food pairings the bell alone caused the dogs to salivate. In this experiment, the unconditioned stimulus is the dog food as it produces an unconditioned response, saliva. The conditioned stimulus is the ringing bell and it produces a conditioned response of the dogs producing saliva.

We are being conditioned in the same way. We are shocked initially by a "terrorist" bombing and in the immediate aftermath we are bombarded with images of carnage with repeated, accompanying words such as Terrorist, Islamic Fundamentalist, Muslim etc. The first of these Pavlovian experiments, in the context of the current wars being waged across the Middle East, was 9/11. The level of outrage provoked by the events of 11th September 2001 was sufficient to persuade the US and UK populations to accept draconian curbs to their freedom and illegal wars fought "to keep them safe". If the official story is full of holes (which it is) then ours was a Pavlovian response to a macabre conditioning experiment.

Last Saturday, Daily Pickings highlighted how we were fooled into the invasion of Iraq, the bombing of Libya and now we're being softened up for direct military intervention in Syria. Was the Boston bombing part of the conditioning process? Irrespective of who was ultimately responsible for the atrocity, it's being used to hype up the Islamic terrorist bogeyman. FBI involvement in provoking such attacks, acting as agents provocateur and supplying bomb-making equipment to would be terrorists, is played down in the media. The Boston bombing is being used to ratchet up the appetite for yet more illegal war and extending the police state.

Only you can stop this, you and millions like you. The military, industrial, financial complex will not relinquish power without widespread refusal to cooperate in these Pavlovian experiments. Share the knowledge, extend the outrage at what is being done in our name:
