(By Hella Ahmed) Those vulnerable to misinformation are the ones getting hooked on conspiracy theories, suffering much, as they become click puppets and remote-controlled pawns, swept away by the strategically planned whirlwinds of the grotesque. Many people have unfounded convictions and superficial opinions, finding there fun, a feeling of belonging, the means of getting rid of tensions due to frustrations of different kinds, and sometimes a hobby helping them fill the existential void that comes with learned helplessness.
Feeling stuck in life is prevalent these days because of a weak economy and unfair wealth sharing, so being on the sidelines, then getting empowered by overcoming what seems to be the illusion of truth, knowing the unknown, is what happens to a lot of misinformed believers. It is becoming a player instead of being a follower, but life loves irony, every movement will make you a follower, and following an illusion of the beyond is not freedom but another kind of slavery. Environment plays a major role into bringing common sense to you or offering you convincing rubbish.
It is indeed the resentment due to the feeling of being only alive, and not able to experience what it is to fully exist, because of bad economic conditions and sociopolitical stress in times of crisis, which can also make the most impressionable bitter to the point of impulsively striving to defend interests that are not theirs, thus reinforcing the decoys at the service of manipulators. Being led to favor rigorous critical thinking is not universal. Intellectual laziness can be involuntary or voluntary : to question without being able to dig deeper or choose to skip the demanding effort.
The essayist points out common traits in the functioning of organizations involved in illegal activities, frank or indirect violence and many transgressions, while virtue-signalling, being backed up by associating with intellectual or pseudo intellectual circles that seem legit, as they are although corrupt too. Connections that give them leeway to abuse without accountability. History has shown us many turnarounds that put an end to some kind of violence, it means that sooner or later, abusers will end up being help accountable for their low-level evil deeds.
To understand the methods of manipulators who resort to malice, criminal stalking, group intimidation, espionage and the plunder of intellectual properties, the book How do manipulators strike? by author Hella Ahmed is an essential guide that helps you immerse into the dark waters of parasites to explore the mentality of the wicked, lazy and envious who dedicate their lives to observing « the other » in order to manipulate, torment, attempt to replace and use people, aggression one way or another being their main occupation.
