The World Economic Forum (WEF) and associated organisations speak openly about what they expect from HUMAN BEHAVIOUR and how they will influence it in the new Smart Cities and communities.
The World Economic Forum admits in their Future Focus 2025 paper that their strategy is in developing 'effective narratives'. They discuss how to control people's thinking and perceptions by being "intentional about the language, format and timing of communications.
Use of behavioural science mechanisms, such as MINDSPACE (messenger, incentives, norms, defaults, salience, priming, affect, commitment and ego), can help the narrative find greater traction.
For example, sensory tools, such as art, gaming or virtual reality, can fill gaps and make threats “feel” real."
This is evident within the promotional language of the Smart City narratives.
They use censorship to ‘protect’ against disinformation, whereas really this is propaganda. In the above WEF Future Focus 2025 paper, they say, "Greater regulation of social networks and protection against false information could help take the onus off individuals to filter out misinformation or disinformation, and place the responsibility on the government or businesses overseeing these networks".
This means that you are not encouraged to think for yourself, or exercise self-discernment or determination. Like many programs brought to us in the past, tyranny comes under the disguise of expert rule and benevolent dictatorship.
Effective narratives = convincing brainwashing
The Rockefeller Foundation, for example, has recently launched multiple grants, costing in the tens of millions of dollars, to create information campaigns that convince people via specific wording and messaging to do what they are told (i.e., take more vaccines, tow the line on climate change measures, etc).
"The funding will support the design and evaluation of interventions, tools, and methods to build trust... and counter inaccurate information, and research to understand how inaccurate information impacts online and offline behaviours, the true cost of mis- and disinformation on health and economic outcomes, and what strategies might be most effective to counter and manage inaccurate and harmful information".
If the message needs millions of dollars to convince people, then perhaps the message isn't entirely truthful, or in your best interests. Be aware that these organisations want to BEND you to THEIR WILL. Their objective is for total control and a healthy profit margin. Read more on the Rockefeller Foundation's Programs here.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioners have often emphasized the magical qualities of language which, in the right hands, gives one the ability to transform people’s linguistic maps and 'reframe' their reality.
In recent times, this work has been combined with 'Nudge Theory', which uses the latest cutting-edge insights in behavioural science and social psychology to directly target and subtly steer people’s unconscious minds without the need of their “reflective processes”, i.e. the conscious mind.
The Centre for Public impact describes itself as a “leading think tank working to make government more effective.” In the wake of the MindSpace document and its new approach to powerful and “cost-effective” behaviour modification, the Behavioural Insights Team was established as a new psychological warfare node across the Five Eyes countries, i.e. Australia, Canada, the USA, New Zealand, and Great Britain.
"Mass psychology is, scientifically speaking, not a very advanced study, and so far its professors have not been in universities: they have been advertisers, politicians, and, above all, dictators. This study is immensely useful to practical men, whether they wish to become rich or to acquire the government.
It is, of course, as a science, founded upon individual psychology, but hitherto it has employed rule-of-thumb methods which were based upon a kind of intuitive common sense. Its importance has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda.
Of these the most influential is what is called “education.” Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio play an increasing part."Bertrand Russell – The Impact of Science on Society (1951)
