Well spoke Erasmus when he put pen to the adage: “In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.” In this biblically prophesied world of today, it’s the person(s) who think for themselves and who’s very DNA rejects “groupthink” who are a threat to those who make gain on the backs of the blind.
The other evening a colleague and I discussed this very subject. I despise groupthink. Those of us who dare reject the satanic social appliance called groupthink are ostracized to bully us into conformity to the “group.” Groupthink is a utility born of Satan and weaponized throughout time by his minions to punish those who refuse to surrender their will to evil men.
The weaker and more attached to hedonism and possessions of pleasure people become, the easier it becomes to effortlessly control and direct large segments of society. Individuality has been bred out of most of society and replaced with a behavioral economy of putrefied cravenness. The weak, spineless led-through-the-nose have no understanding of how this game of control is played, and even less understanding how this portends to the coming hyper-cataclysmic period of time the Word of God identifies as the “great tribulation.”
Evil derives power from submissive, malleable masses. This is why groupthink is the principle component necessary for successful one-world globalist orthodoxy, and that’s monumentally misunderstood. It’s misunderstood because groupthink is a mental and emotional virus – a hundred times more deadly than progressive multi-focal leukoencephalopathy and not remotely as rare as said brain infection. Groupthink is a demonic pathogen treatable by the introduction of the dynamic of godly individualism, which in truth can only be brought about by a personal relationship with Christ.
The American Heritage Dictionary defines groupthink as:
- The act or practice of reasoning or decision-making by a group, especially when characterized by uncritical acceptance or conformity to prevailing points of view.
- Decision-making by a group (especially in a manner that discourages creativity or individual responsibility).
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines groupthink as:
- A pattern of thought characterized by self-deception, forced manufacture of consent, and conformity to group values and ethics.
Investopedia defines groupthink as:
- A phenomenon developed in groups marked by the consensus of opinion without critical reasoning or evaluation of consequences or alternatives.
The study of ethics at McCombs School of Business – University of Texas, views groupthink as:
- When people’s desire to maintain group loyalty becomes more important than making the best choices.
Psychologist Irving Janis identifies groupthink as:”A deterioration of mental efficiency, reality testing, and moral judgment that results from in-group pressures. … Group members often suffer from overconfidence and hold an unquestioned belief in the group’s competence and morality. Dissent by group members may be discouraged and even lead to expulsion from the group. Because people often want to avoid these punishments, they remain silent. This creates the illusion of agreement or unanimity in the group. … Groups may also reach decisions, including moral judgments, which are more extreme than any single member of the group originally supported. Unfortunately, if groupthink takes hold, group members may not even question ethically dubious decisions and actions.”
The true demonic dynamic of groupthink in the definitions above is as unobservable as air. Investopedia and McCombs School of Business accurately define groupthink, but the malevolence of this orthodoxy hides in plain site.
Those like Janis, with ophidian cunning, cleverly lead students/those they’re instructing about the inherent dangers of groupthink – into groupthink by redefining truth through the brand vilification of a group. Here think white, male Christians and all who refuse to be compartmentalized. The primary objective being to portray Christianity as a vile construct of intolerance, as I explained in my Video Rant titled: “Wokeism: Another Name For Subjugation.”
The masters who orchestrate and manipulate groupthink are adroit in their ability to manipulate and control mental and emotional faculties. They do it by leveraging hatred and desire against the behavioral modification of biblical super-ego, which properly subscribed to, turns us toward God, “Truth,” righteousness, biblical integrity and God-given unalienable rights inherited through Natural Law. These masters conflate holding such values as being homophobic, anti-women’s rights, racist and intolerant.
Independent individuals who aren’t motivated by public acclaim, who are willing and capable of speaking their minds, and who are secure in Christ, are threats to those who plot implementation of one-world globalism. They have a reflexive compulsion to destroy such persons through vicious public ad hominem attacks intended as warnings to discourage others from speaking out. This tactic of personal destruction is a well-practiced art when it comes to discouraging righteous individualism.
I point fear-laden Christians to 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV. Of course, that goes against the repeatedly proven ineffectual mentality of: “Just elect the right person(s) and all will be well.”
Our models of success are not failed politicians. Our models of success are Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, Elijah, the Apostles, Fanny Crosby, John Newton, Nokseng of the Garo Tribe of Assam et al. Our models of success are those who are willing to live and die for Christ, not those who are skilled at manipulating opinion for personal gain.
