“How easy it is to make people believe a lie, and how hard it is to undo that work again!”
There is a singular, higher-order purpose underlying the ruling class’s use of psychological / genetic manipulation and other control tactics within our reality.
Whether or not they are aware of it, the ‘mission’ for many of these human and non-human beings (as well as numerous other non-ruling class individuals) in these versions of themselves in this reality at this time is to create through consciousness-regressive consciousness as part of consciousness’ ongoing process of seeking balanced expression through, within and between its regressive and progressive aspects.
It must also be understood that some of the ruling class—both human and non-human—are not in alignment with their mission/purpose for this version of themselves this reality at this time. In other words, they, like many non-ruling class individuals, have been caught in the flow of consciousness-regressive creation which is NOT what Core Self intends for these versions of itself/themselves in this reality at this time.
"... Never have so many been manipulated so much by so few."
Since before the beginning of the original transition of humanity from a consciousness progressive-dominant cycle of evolution to increasingly consciousness regressive-dominant cycles of evolution, various [non-human] races and civilizations (both off-world and cohabitants of our world) have been devising and implementing a variety of psychological and technological techniques to manipulate and otherwise "downgrade" the genetics and functional capacities of the mind-body complex. One of the countless lies perpetrated upon humanity through the use of some of these techniques is that the science of psychology only came into existence a few centuries ago.
Some of the races that were invited to participate in the original human project for the purpose of learning how to transition their own civilizations from consciousness-regressive to consciousness-progressive cycles by way of physicality, or enabling them to gain access to higher-order cycles of consciousness-progressive evolution through physicality, were greatly intimidated by and extremely envious of the highly-advanced energetic and creational capacities of the original full-human mind-body complex.
