Group Psychology – Common Enemies

I recall that during my student days, a psychology teacher once said, “It is really not difficult to unite a group of people. All you need for this is to have a common enemy.” The recent COVID-19 outbreak has brought my attention back to this statement.

The “common enemy idea” to manipulate sizeable groups of people is of course nothing new. The most horrible example I can think of is the Second World War, when the jews were used to unite the German people under a dictatorship responsible for the Holocaust.

After the second world war, the USA and much of the NATO was strongly united because of the threat of communism, which was widely spread through politicians and the mainstream media. The new enemy took the place of Adolf Hitler and served the Military Industrial Complex well.

In the 70s, the Club of Rome was created, with the goal of “Holistic, long-term thinking for a better future.” With a good understanding of mass psychology, the Club of Rome looked for a common enemy to unite humanity, and found one: man!

In a report called “The First Global Revolution” from the Club of Rome, which you can read in full online you can read the following quote on page 75:

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”

If you forget about the ethical aspects of this statement for a moment, you have to see that from a psychological point of view this is a brilliant move. How else can you unite all of humanity, except by creating a common enemy which threatens everyone alike?

This is the reason why subjects like global warming are in part politically motivated. Yes, there are real and big problems with the environment on this planet. These problems are also being used to manipulate us, with fear-based rhetoric, by those who understand group psychology.

Fast forward to 2020. Another “common enemy” was found by the World Economic Forum. COVID-19. It does not matter that this is not Ebola or the Plague, but a much milder flu-like disease. With a lot of fear mongering, you can instill enough dread in everyone to portray such a disease as the common, worldwide enemy.

Once there is a common enemy in place, it is much easier to manipulate people. We all want to be accepted by our peers. And you are irresponsible and even stupid if you do not recognize the dangers. You are anti-social, an outcast, if you do not adapt to the general guidelines and practices related to the new threat.

To make the “common enemy” plot work you have, the level of fear has to be increased significantly. Those who are “under threat” must believe that this new common enemy can take away their health, their possessions, and their lives, if the “common enemy” is not slain.

Then, once the common enemy is recognized and the fear levels are high, you have to ensure that nothing distracts the people from this situation, lest people snap out of the “mass hypnosis” and start to develop critical thinking skills again, because that would ruin the game you play.

If you love power, that is how you use real or imagined common enemies. If you love freedom, you help people see what the group psychology behind this kind of manipulation is, and how they can become free again. I love freedom and am here to help humanity to resist the great reset. Please join me in this resistance.
