Then in "Etiology of Social Dementia - 2" we focused a bit more, zooming in on government war propaganda as one central trigger.
In the series "Jabber The Whut?" we dissected the issue a bit more, by discussing what is meant by government in the USA, then elaborated by discussing certain triggers of dementia emanating from the MOMCOM realm.
The subtitle of this post today, could easily be: "MOMCOM can fool some of the people all the time, but MOMCOM can't fool all of the people all of the time".
The fundamental subject matter of this post comes from considering the negative, destructive effects that MOMCOM forces on the citizenry by fooling them.
Fooling them with degrees of misrepresentation, called "spin", "propaganda", or "deceit".
When we ask ourselves "where does that type of dementia originate", one obvious answer is "the brain", but where in the brain, and how does it get there in the first place?
Of course, in the abstract, that depends on the type of dementia, i.e., whether it is triggered by a physical injury to some part of the brain, such as blunt force trauma, some chemical toxin, or whether it is triggered by a non-physical, ethereal source (e.g. emotional trauma, and the like).
This post is directed, then, toward ethereal sources that lead to the triggering of dementia of a particular sort.
Quotes from two posts, on other blogs, give us a basis for the remainder of this post:
There is a large amount of data indicating that the amygdala, a particular structure in the brain, is strongly involved during the learning of "conditioned" fear ... distinct neuronal circuits within the central nucleus of the amygdala ... are specifically involved in acquisition and control of behavioural fear responses ... researchers have recently discovered that ... prolonged activation of this defense system may lead to emotional disorders.(Toxins of Power Blog). Lets narrow that down a bit to the emotional, ethereal dynamic of "trust":
Trust ... plays a key role in economic exchange and politics. In the absence of trust among trading partners, market transactions break down. In the absence of trust in a country's institutions and leaders, political legitimacy breaks down. Much recent evidence indicates that trust contributes to economic, political and social success ...(Washington's Blog). We can easily link dementia to trust, truth, and money, by remembering: those jumping out of buildings during market crashes, the increase in divorces during economic trauma, the surge of suicides in the military, and this statement:
"If you take a broad enough definition of trust, then it would explain basically all the difference between the per capita income of the United States and Somalia," ventures Steve Knack, a senior economist at the World Bank who has been studying the economics of trust for over a decade. That suggests that trust is worth $12.4 trillion dollars a year to the U.S., which, in case you are wondering, is 99.5% of this country's income ...
The drop in trust, we believe, is a major factor behind the deteriorating economic conditions.
Trauma can be caused by a wide variety of events, but there are a few common aspects. There is frequently a violation of the person's familiar ideas about the world and of their human rights, putting the person in a state of extreme confusion and insecurity. This is also seen when people or institutions, depended on for survival, violate or betray or disillusion the person in some unforeseen way.(Wikipedia, Psychological Trauma, citing The Harm of Trauma, PDF). You are doin' a heckuva job MOMCOM.
