Vault 7

In this week’s spotlight I would like to discuss trust—specifically in our government. Last week I spent two hours with George Noory on Coast-to-Coast AM discussing the Vault 7 Wikileaks release of some of the things in the CIA’s hacking toolbox. In my book, Gotcha! The Subordination of Free Will, I covered many of the tools available to our intelligence agencies. I also spent thousands of words sharing some of the very many atrocious studies that had been carried out on innocent American citizens in the name of security. There are well known abuses such as the work conducted under ...

Why Gratitude?

This week I wish to draw attention to the notion of gratitude. For years I have taught what has become referred to as the four-corner philosophy for self-fulfillment. Those four corners include forgiveness, gratitude, self-responsibility, and service; but today I wish to focus on gratitude. Specifically, what is the purpose of having a gratitude attitude? Gratitude is something that typically is the topic of pastors and counselors. However, there is a growing body of science that is beginning to show the many benefits available as a result of a gratitude attitude. Emotion Gratitude is an emotion that reduces anxiety and ...

Psychographics and the Engineering of Consent

In this week’s spotlight I wish to discuss psychographics. For a long time sellers of wares and ideas have relied on demographics for their targeted marketing efforts. Demographics reveal the statistical data of a population, especially those showing average age, income, education, and so forth. So if the target audience is female between the ages of 20 and 40, it is demographics that identify where to go with advertising dollars—whether the ad is designed to peddle a product or win a vote. Psychographics Now by way of further identification, we add the science of psychographics. Psychographics uses demographic information to determine ...

Unconsciously Conscious?

In this week’s spotlight I would like to address the notion of group think. I continue to be surprised at how often people repeat lines they have heard spoken by pundits on both sides of the political arena that are false to fact. Then I thought back to a meeting I had with a friend of mine who was visiting from Germany. He loves magic so we decided to take in a magic show while there. I was asked to assist the magician by pretending to have lost my watch, a watch that he would find. I wondered, how many ...

There’s Nothing Free About Free-Will

In this week’s spotlight I want to take a minute to clarify something. I’ve being asked more and more lately about the notion of free-will. We have entertained a number of guests on this show with rock solid credentials, who have insisted that free-will is in the words of Professor Schwaab, “The Grand Illusion.” If this is so, many enquire, why aren’t there more people talking about it. Well one reason most certainly has to do with research that shows rather conclusively that people who do not believe in free-will are less happy and more inclined towards accepting acts that ...

Semantic Distortions

In this week’s spotlight I wish to discuss semantic distortions, how word meanings are distorted by our beliefs and emotions. Our world, to use the words of Alfred Korzybski, has now become, perhaps more often than any sane person would like to admit, false to fact and therefore necessarily distorted. It is precisely the mechanism of semantic distortions that underlies thinking processes that are or become neurotic or psychotic. It is also this same mechanism that gives rise to self-sabotaging behavior and self-limiting beliefs. This very same mechanism—and mechanism is a good word because the process becomes so automatic that ...
