An old English Fairy tale relates that once upon a time the town of Frenchville was overrun by rats. There were rats, rats and rats everywhere. All means to get rid of the rats were unsuccessful. One day, a stranger appeared in the Council hall of the village and offered to get rid of the rats. He asked for a large sum of money. The Mayor and the town elders desperate due the cries of the people accepted. The man then took out a flute and moving along main street, began to play a tune. “And as each note pierced the air, you might have seen a strange sight. For out of every hole, all the rats came tumbling.” They followed the Piper out of town until he led them tumbling down a cliff and into the sea where they all perished. When the Piper came back into the town there was rejoicing and celebration. He went up the steps of the Council building and asked for his money. The Mayor and the elders now tried to persuade him to take a much lesser amount of money as they figured that they couldn’t pay such a large sum of money to a fellow whose only task was to blow a pipe, and besides, they were rid of the rats anyway. After disagreements and the failure of the elders to pay the Piper the agreed sum, he left in a huff and then went out and as he left along Main street he began to play his pipe. “And as he paced down the streets the elders mocked, but from school-room and play-room, from nursery and workshop, not a child but run out with eager glee and shout following gaily at the Piper’s call, dancing, laughing, joining hands and tripping feet. The bright throng moved along up Gold Street, and beyond Silver Street and into the forest where Piper and children disappeared forever, never to been again.
Dancing to the tune of the Pied Piper became in common parlance a reference for being hypnotically carried away by a willy manipulator.
But this is just a Fairy tale you say. “such a thing cannot happen in real life”, “Aah! Those were just children; it’s just a story to teach them not to follow strangers. can such a thing happen to adults?” The answer unfortunately is a biiiiig yes! It happens more often that we are able to accept and in any case there has never been and there will never be a person in a hypnotic spell who would ever agree that he/she was under a spell.
Take the extreme case of the People’s Temple, a cult led by the infamous Jim Jones and who in 1978 led his followers in a mass suicide ritual that left over 900 dead from drinking a cyanide raced punch. This we agree is an extreme case of mind control but anyone who has studied closely the methods of evangelicals and cults will agree that mind control and manipulation of members are very widespread practices.To be held in a trance or a mesmeric hold is actually easier than most people are willing to accept. This is because of the nature of the human mind. It has a rational side and an emotional side. Once the emotional side is excited sufficiently, the rational mind tends to withdraw and can even be put to sleep. In television dramas, political rallies, football and such-like mesmeric programming, the eyes of viewers glaze and the emotional mind takes over the whole persona such that one does not realize he has been taken. This is why in television it is called programming. In the so-called secular world examples can be drawn from the world of politics, advertising, radio and television, medicine, the army and such uniformed groups. One of the first tell-tale signs that should be a warning signal is when you see a uniform. Another warning signal is imprinting using shock and awe or a continuous incessant drumming of an idea as for example, endless advertising of a simplistic idea over and over and over, ad-nauseam until logic and rationality are banished. All that is then left is the one meaningless idea imprinted in mind as for example, “Coke is it!” or “Stay home.”
The colonialist program to take over Africa involved the most intensive brain washing and well crafted programs of indoctrination of the Africam mind. Using the 3Cs, Christianity, Civilization, and Commerce, many of these programs are still in place. Brainwashing involved emptying and cleaning the African mind of anything African. In Gĩkũyũ, they called the new initiates, Arutwo, literally meaning those from whom everything has been removed. They became, Christians, in Gĩkũyũ, A kanitha or Akani Thaai – those who have denied the God of the Gĩkũyũ, Mwene Nyaga. This indoctrination was done very carefully as the example of the sinister picture below demonstrates.
The picture was taken by the Consolata Mission in Nyeri at or around 1905 and shows a carefully arranged photograph of two girls and an Italian nun. The girls were made to kneel before the nun and to look up adoringly at the face of the nun. The nun was made to sit on a higher seat as in a throne and to take each girls hand as if to lift them higher up. This is the same thing that they do when they place their virgin or the crucified figure in a high position for the faithful to look up and venerate. The subtle sub-concious associations in this picture are not very obvious and are cleverly hidden. Venerate the nun and the Mzungu (white man) for he represents God. Get out of the blackness and look up to the white, (rutwo). This dangerous and profound veneration and adoration led to an unquestioning religious faith of the objects of adoration, in this case the Mzungu and the virgin. The photo was first published in the book The Akikuyu: Their Customs, Traditions and Practices by the Italian Father C. Cagnolo published in 1933. It is no wonder this sinister photograph was removed in the whitewashed edition of the book by the Gĩkũyũ Father Wambũgũ. All the racist language was meticulously removed in the new edition and an apologist tone adopted. But of course it is no longer Father Cagnolo who is talking but one of our own. The edition is a white lie from an institution that has a long history of blatant revisionism.
Africans are still being manipulated using these methods of teaching them to religiously adore, venerate and obey authority that comes from Europe and America be they teachers, priests, doctors, politicians and other proffessionals.
- What the Cagnolo doctor prescribes for us, the Wambũgũ doctor prescribes without question.
- What the Cagnolo teacher teaches must be the best and our Wambũgũ teacher adds no value.
- What the Cagnolo Lawyer practices must be so just, our Wambũgũ Lawyer swallows, wig, lobes and all.
- What our Cagnolo Architect designs in Dubai, our Wambũgũ architects use as case studies.
We all remember the Hymn.
What He says we will do,
Where He sends we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
COVID: The projection of a mass illusion
In times like these when the entire world is held in a hypnotic trance, any voices aimed at awakening the mass from this stupor are met with hostility or worse, a zombie-like incomprehension and unresponsiveness.
