Chapter 3

Ignorance and Deception — The Twin Pillars of Power

Nobody likes it when another person controls them. Humans want to believe that they are just as good and equal as everyone else. None like it when another person is exercising power and control over their free will.

It’s much easier to accept control when it is not another person, similar to you, who is exercising the control over your life.

For example, it’s much easier to accept that an omnipotent God controls you than it is to become comfortable with another person, seemingly equal to you, having power and control over your life.

More than politics and wealth, religion (belief and faith in a God) has the greatest influence over a person’s mind.

In the last chapter, we explained how important a written document (Constitution) is to the establishment of the rule of law that controls people’s actions, where this written document constitutes a body of fundamental principles that govern people.

We used the Moses Constitution and the Hammurabi Constitution as two of the first examples of written laws that controlled ancient societies. What we didn’t point out is a very important difference between Moses’ and Hammurabi’s laws, both “written on stone.” Moses’ constitution included laws pertaining to the worship and acceptance of God’s supreme authority over the people. Hammurabi’s did not.

We introduced the Code of Hammurabi as one of the earliest and most complete examples of a written legal constitution. Although the people were convinced that Hammurabi received his authority to be their king from their gods, the rules that were written out on stone didn’t establish these gods’ supreme authority over the people.

We pointed out that Hammurabi’s constitution did not establish his authority as God’s chosen spokesperson. Hammurabi’s rules did not give him any divine special power over the people. Most of the 282 rules in Hammurabi’s code had to do with specific rules that governed family life and commerce (the way that the people interacted with each other).

We explained that the Hebrew’s ancestors rebelled against Hammurabi’s supreme authority, left the Babylonian kingdom and wandered in the wilderness until they were saved from hunger by the Egyptians who made them slaves. We explained that the people of the Bible — the Hebrews — did not want to live under a law given by just a man. They wanted to know that God’s laws and will for them were not simply laws that a man had made up.

If a Hebrew leader had done what King Hammurabi had done —written the law himself upon tablets of stone — the Hebrews wouldn’t have accepted these laws with any more legality than how their ancestors accepted Hammurabi’s constitution. They wanted God to write the law on the stones, not a man.

We explained the Bible’s story about Moses and the stone tablets upon which the Hebrew God wrote out His commandments. According to the Bible’s narrative, the people weren’t ready for a constitution of God’s original, higher law, so Moses had to go back up into the mountain and receive a lower law that constituted God’s will for the people … laws that they could and would obey. There was no record of what this higher law constituted, but, according to the other ancient constitutions that were written, this higher law gave no special authority for another human to hold supreme power and control over others.

If the people were going to be convinced to follow laws, they had to be convinced that these laws were not manmade, but God-made. People needed to trust that the control over them was God controlling them, not man controlling them. This was reiterated in the Bible’s story about Aaron attempting to tell the people what to do when Moses was gone. The people didn’t trust Aaron’s authority because he wasn’t God, nor did they believe that Aaron had been appointed by God like Moses had. The people needed something to see in order to believe, so Aaron built a god (golden calf) for the people to worship.

According to the story, God told Moses that the people had rebelled and that He was going to destroy all of them. Moses convinced God not to destroy all the people but to give them a second chance: “And the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.”

Moses gained the confidence of the people when he was able to convince them that he could actually change God’s mind. Moses became the people’s savior and was the first one to offer an atonement for their sins in order to appease God’s wrath.

The people were convinced that they had been saved … because of Moses.

The Real Truth® is, the Hebrew leaders needed to ensure that the people were convinced that God had written the laws HIMSELF, and that whatever these leaders (called and authorized by God) told the people to do, was told as if God Himself was instructing the people.

Therefore, when the law was rewritten upon the stones, God established His supreme authority over the people, making it a sin to disobey any of the laws He wrote upon the stones. The Hebrew God established the supreme authority of his chosen mortal leaders as his lawgivers. For this reason, unlike the higher law, which followed the pattern set by the other societies’ written constitutions, the first three commandments of the Hebrew God’s law established God’s supreme authority over the people: You shall have no other gods before me; you shall not make idols of other gods; and you shall not take the name of God in vain.

The people did not see or speak with God themselves. They only saw and spoke to their leaders. The people were convinced that their leaders were God’s only appropriate mouthpieces, and that God would not allow their leaders to give them any commandment that wasn’t first given to their leaders by their God.

This is how humans are taught … how they are deceived … to accept the control that other humans have over their lives. Leaders who exercise power and control over others rely on their ability to make their followers believe that, as a follower, they are not being directly controlled by the leader — that something more powerful than the leader exercises the power and control and establishes their laws.

In the last chapter, we explained how Americans were convinced that their Constitution was inspired by their Christian God, and that the Founding Father’s of their nation could not have come up with such an incredible constitution on their own. Before these prideful Americans could accept that their Constitution came from God, they had to be convinced that their God was the right God. Although we explained how corrupt the original United States Constitution was, and how inefficient it still is at establishing power and authority that is good for ALL people equally, the belief that God inspired the U.S. Constitution keeps Americans deceived and ignorant of its obvious flaws.

How can people be so easily convinced — deceived?

What is the cause of their ignorance — their inability to seek further understanding?

The simple answer — Santa Claus.

The human brain grows and becomes mature throughout the early life experience of a person. Some scientific exploration has concluded that the human brain is not fully developed until a person reaches the age of 25. The brain is responsible for the way a person thinks, which includes how to think, which includes how the brain categorizes the information that the person is exposed to.

The brain automatically categorizes information into what feels good and what does not. These feelings are physical. They are real. No one can be convinced that their feelings are not real. But a person can be convinced that what is causing their feelings is not real.

As the brain grows, it learns what stimuli from the environment (information and stimulus from the body’s physical senses) releases feel-good neurotransmitters. Scientifically speaking, a neurotransmitter is a chemical substance that is released at the end of a nerve fiber by the arrival of a nerve impulse and, by diffusing across the synapse or junction, causes the transfer of the impulse to another nerve fiber, a muscle fiber, or some other structure.

When our brain is stimulated, it causes impulses which, in turn, produce particular neurotransmitters (like dopamine) that make us feel good, and also feel bad.

Not all brains react the same to the same stimuli. Each of our brains is conditioned during the first 25 years of our existence.

Well was it said by Albert Einstein: “Common sense is nothing more than a deposit of prejudices laid down in the mind before you reach eighteen.” This is very true. Our brain learns how to respond to things that we experience, and the response depends on the negative or positive impact directly associated with the stimuli (the act we experience from someone or something else in our environment).

Santa Claus is a deception. The child’s brain learns to respond to this deception.

The brain learns how to react to what the parent tells the child is a good act or a bad act. The parent physically responds to the bad act differently than the parent does to the good act. The parent’s response teaches the child’s brain how to interpret the chemical reaction that naturally occurs and is specifically associated with the act.

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter produced by the hypothalamus, a small region of the brain that helps you feel pleasure. It’s an important part in your reward system, meaning the brain releases dopamine when you do things that feel good or pleasurable or when you complete a task that is associated with pleasant stimuli from your environment. If you do what your parent tells you to do, the stimuli that the parent produces, that your brain analyzes, is always good or pleasurable.

A child’s principle environment is completely controlled by the parent. In many cases, the parent uses deception in order to control the child’s behavior. Therefore, when the child learns that Santa Claus is not real, or that the parent has deceived them in some other way, the child’s brain learns to associate deception with control. The child learns that deception can create a positive reaction in others which, in turn, produces positive stimuli, making the child’s brain feel happiness or pleasure. Telling the truth does not usually result in a positive experience because of all the deception that the child experienced as their brain was developing.

Another example:

If an adolescent child is caught masturbating (by a parent) and the parent believes that masturbation is evil, the parent’s action is a stimuli in the child’s environment that enters the child’s brain. If the stimuli is negative, it becomes associated with the act of masturbation. The parent’s negative response causes the child’s brain to release a chemical reaction in response to the parent’s response.

If the child is never caught by the parent, and the stimulation of the child’s body through masturbation always ends in a positive experience, the child’s brain will never release a chemical that in being transmitted throughout the brain causes a negative physical feeling. Masturbation will never be anything but something positive for the adult.

Often, when a child’s brain has been conditioned to respond negatively to natural sexual urges, the adult brain has the capacity to cause the adult to act in a negative way to something that should naturally be a positive experience. Most rapes and sexual abnormalities (as society might see them) are the result of the way a child’s brain was affected by sex while it was developing.

What harm to the child, or to anyone else, is masturbation? The same can be said about homosexuality, because masturbation is a person of one gender sexually stimulating the same gender.

Power and control are ALWAYS associated with deception. The more deceptive the person is, the more power and control the person can have over someone whose brain is accustomed to being deceived in order to experience happiness or pleasure.

Most humans are accustomed to being deceived in order to feel good.

In regards to the power and control that the proper government should have over people, the laws that it establishes to maintain this control MUST ALWAYS PRODUCE HAPPINESS FOR ALL PEOPLE EQUALLY.

In order for the people to be able to accept these laws, they must be convinced that there is no deception involved in creating the laws that control them.

MOST political and business decisions, and ALL religious decisions, are made behind closed doors where the people cannot see how these decisions are made. Leaders do not want the people to know how their decisions are made. The people’s ignorance of how these laws are debated and created allow the decision-makers to ensure that the people will adhere to and not rebel against the decisions by their leaders.

In the case of the U.S. Constitution (that many Americans believe was a document inspired by God), if the American Founding Fathers would have allowed themselves to be videotaped, their discussions, their arguments, their pride, their arrogance, and the Real Truth® behind why they wrote it the way that they did, would be discovered. The profanity, the hypocrisy, the anger, the frustration, the innuendo, and the ways that these men spoke to and treated each other would not be seen as civil, and especially not Christian-like.

But the most astonishing revelation in regards to how the American Founding Fathers created the U.S. Constitution is in how these politicians spoke in private about the people they were supposed to be representing.

These men couldn’t have believed any less in the words that they used to deceive the people.

The U.S. Founding Fathers did not believe “these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

The above words from the Declaration of Independence couldn’t have been more of a deception.

When these words were created, there was a lot of debate about how to say words that would inspire “the governed” to accept the power and control these men wanted to hold over the people. The most obvious was when the Constitution was amended from the “voice of the people” to elect representatives to establish laws for “the people” to include the institution of a Senate, not appointed by the people, but by those who held power and control over the people. For over a hundred years, U.S. Senators were not elected. They were appointed by the rich and powerful.

NO law, NO authority, NOTHING can be accomplished for the people WITHOUT the consent of the United States Senate. And if the people of the United States could listen in “behind closed doors” of the meetings held by those who hold power and control over them, the people would better understand how their leaders depend on the ignorance of the people in order to legislate the power that they need to control them.

Parents do not allow their children to be present when they discuss rules for their family. Their children do not have the intelligence (they are too ignorant) to give their opinion on family matters.

The Pope does not allow members of his church to know how he makes decisions behind closed doors while determining what God wants for the Church.

CEO’s do not want their meetings recorded so that their employees know how and why they make the decisions that are best, not for the employee, but for the company.

Politicians have counted on the ignorance of the people in order to maintain the power and control that the ignorant masses couldn’t understand. The more ignorant the follower is of how the leader operates in the dark (i.e. behind closed doors), the more control and power the leader has over the followers.

Ignorance leads to deception.

Ignorance and deception are the two main pillars that hold up the power and control of all institutions of authority upon this earth.

The people should demand that any person who desires to be their leader, who desires power and control over their lives, should be required by law to wear a body camera while doing their job. Except for the rare cases of national security, no leader should be allowed to do anything or say anything that the people over whom the leader has been granted authority cannot see and hear with their own eyes and ears.

The pillars of ignorance and deception upon which the house of power and control is established must be removed, so that a new house can be built upon a foundation of Real Truth®, in which house there can be found a mansion for every human being.

Only then can a rewrite of the following words ring true, not just for those who govern, but for “the governed”:

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for all people to dissolve the political bands which have isolated and separated them from each other, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the united and equal station to which the Laws of Nature or of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of humankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to unite. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all humans are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among us, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Natural Existence and Happiness.”

One of Thomas Jefferson’s — one of the authors of the U.S. Declaration — heroes was the renown poet, Thomas Gray. Jefferson often quoted Gray. One of Jefferson’s favorite quotes was,

“Where ignorance is bliss, Tis folly to be wise.”
