TPCC: Engineering Consent - Subverting the Democratic Process

The Century of the self - 2of4 The Engineering of Consent from saso dzuljo petrovski on Vimeo.

For the past several years, this writer has been trying to make sense out of what is going on in America. To this writer's mind, the events and political discourse simply do not seem rational nor logical. This writer has spent a lot of time researching Natural Law(upon which our country is founded). This writer has also spent extensive time researching and understanding the Governance Doctrines of the Divine Right of Kings and Consent of the Governed(derived from Natural Law's Social Contract). And finally this writer researched and explored the Progressive Movement. Yet somehow, this writer was frustrated in understanding the disconnect between what he was taught about our government in Public Schools and the reality of our alleged Democratic Process.

Engineering Consent appears to be the missing piece of the puzzle. The featured video for this article (at bottom) rather laboriously explains the premise and concept of "Engineering Consent". But, in deference to shortage of time we all suffer from, this writer will attempt to succinctly explain the evil that is "Engineering Consent". (As this writer will often refer to the concept of "Engineering Consent" in his future writings, the writer urges the reader to learn and understand this concept so they may understand his future writings and the threat "Engineering Consent" represents to "free will, liberty and the Democratic Process.) Most importantly, this writer believes that this knowledge of "Engineering Consent" will help you better understand what is going on in America and give you the tools to resist being engineered by your government to give your consent to things which are detrimental to your own personal best interest. You can see a slightly different but corroborating perspective on Engineering Consent in these videos:

  1. Propaganda in US - History of Public Relations > Freud & Edw... (1 of 6)
  2. Propaganda in America - Meet Edward Bernays Father of Public Relations (2 of 6)
  3. Propaganda in America - The Art of Public Relations (PR) Spin (3of6)
  4. Propaganda in America - Hitler's Ideological Beast (4of6)
  5. Propaganda in America-FDR's NEW DEAL inspires NAZI Goebbels>Busi...)
  6. Propaganda in America - Enemy within: Are the Masses rational or Ir...

The short version of Engineering Consent begins with some portion of the population believing they are smarter and more rational than the masses. These people who think and/or say they know better than the masses often refer to themselves as the Educated Elites. From this premise of alleged superiority, Educated Elites assert the conclusion that they have the right and duty to engineer the consent of the masses. That is to say, because Educated Elites assert that the masses are too stupid and irrational to know what best for them, Educated Elites assert they have the right and duty to manipulate the masses to accept whatever policy the Educated Elites deem to be in the best interests of the society.

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.

Johanne Von Goethe

The Educated Elites believe they can Engineer Consent in a variety of ways, among them Indoctrination, Education, Conditioning and by exploiting base instinct and emotion(Edward Bernays) by creating Stress/Social Turmoil. Through these methods, Educated Elites believe they can remove from the masses the culture of "Rugged Individualism", "Competition", "Distrust of Government", "Limited Government", and "the Establishment of Truth by the individual using their own observations and reasoning". All of these being attributes that derive from Natural Law, Consent of the Governed and the Founding of our Country.


Before we talk further about Indoctrination, Education, Conditioning and exploiting base instinct and emotion(Edward Bernays) by creating Stress/Social Turmoil, lets briefly revisit the history of Establishing Truth in the Western World. Establishment of Truth refers to how a society determines truth from falsehood and forms its “Perspective of Reality”. Following the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476AD, the Governance Doctrine known as the Divine Right of Kings came to dominate the governments of the Western World. Divine Right of Kings asserted that the King/Queeen was a God or an emissary of God here on earth, and therefore no earthly-being could question his(her) authority or decisions. Under Divine Right of Kings, Truth was established by the King/Queen, often by simple declaration.(Think “World is flat” and “Earth center of Universe) And the King’s Established Truth was enforced through various social and economic sanctions and/or physical punishment(e.g. Home arrest of Galileo). The Divine Right of Kings Governance Doctrine prevailed in the Western World until near the end of the Enlightenment 1650AD-1800AD. (For the remainder of this article, the writer will refer to the supreme royal person as King, regardless of gender.)

In Closing:

Thank you, my fellow citizens, for taking your valuable time to read and reflect upon what is written here.

If what is written here rings true to you, perhaps you should contact your local elected officials and let them know. If you are afraid of repercussions, snail mail it anonymously and ask them to respond in the local paper or their own monthly/quarterly internet newsletter. Even if this article refers to something outside you geographic area, it still likely applies to your location. Remember all those taxpayer training junkets we taxpayers send the bureaucrats on? They all learn the same “livestock management” techniques to use on WE THE PEOPLE.

And that leaves WE THE PEOPLE with this conundrum: While our #Government works full time with compensation and funded with our money for the cause of #Tyranny; WE THE PEOPLE are forced to work part time without compensation for the cause of #liberty with what is left over of our time, money and energy.

Finally, this article is written with the same intentions as Thomas Paine I, Don Mashak, seek no leadership role. I, Don Mashak, seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own “Common Sense”

Keep Fighting the Good Fight!

Trump National Diversity Coalition's Bruce LeVell: President’s Support Among Blacks, Hispanics Will ‘More Than Double’ In 2020

Bruce LeVell, the National Diversity Coalition for Trump executive director, said on Sunday evening he predicts President Donald Trump will win even higher levels of support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020 than he did in 2016.

“Pastor Darrell Scott is the CEO, we started this back in 2015,” LeVell said on Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel on Sunday evening about the National Diversity Coalition for Trump. “It is the largest diversity coalition platform in history for a Republican candidate, not to mention a sitting president, and there are millions of guests that sign on and sign up that are part of this. If you look on the website, you see African Americans for Trump, Haitian Americans for Trump, Korean Americans for Trump, Chinese Americans for Trump, Hispanic Americans for Trump–all very large. They all stand in one agreement that they believe in this great president and that he is here for all and wants everyone to be successful. It’s pretty flattering, honestly, to be a part of this. It just totally debunks everything that they try to make him out to be–a racist, which he’s not. The numbers prove that he’s not. You can see where he’s rising in terms of the Hispanic vote, and the African American vote. It’s just really going to be mind-boggling on the next go-around. I guarantee it. It’s going to more than double because people are happy; they’re working.”

LeVell, when asked for his rationale on why he thinks Trump’s support in 2020 among blacks and Hispanics will more than double, attributed it to the results President Trump has gotten for those communities.

“Sometimes you have to speak things into existence,” LeVell said. “The president said, ‘What do you have to lose?’ That challenge, especially in the underserved communities, well, yeah, what do we have to lose? We tried it this way for 30 or 40 years. Some of these cities and municipalities were under Democrat rule, as you might say, for many years, and then you say, ‘You know what? Let’s make the ask.’ You know, the president made the ask. Sometimes, you just have to ask, ‘Hey, what do you got to lose? Try this.’ Let’s try one of the biggest, strongest bills that he’s signed, that was so beneficial, called the Opportunity Zones. This bill right here alone is bringing a lifeline to some of these underserved communities and is projected to bring in over hundreds of billions of dollars in these underserved communities, which are predominantly African American communities. For example, in Atlanta, there are minority business contractors teaming up with other business contractors building a hotel in an Opportunity Zone. This community has just been blighted for God knows how long. These are the things that people are starting to see–the light at the end of the tunnel. Here’s a businessman that understands what I call a balance sheet, a P & L sheet of profit and loss. The president wants to see the country profitable, not losses. So that’s what he does. He says, ‘Okay, where can we improve? What can we do?’”

He continued, “Like I said earlier, I think the Opportunity Zones is a sleeper; it has so many moving parts to it where you can sell a piece of property for $2 million and instead of paying that very high capital gains [tax] you can identify those funds over the zone, and then, you can build another little hotel or a shopping center for economic empowerment for that community. So there’s so many initiatives out there for people of color, like myself, who see opportunities. You know, how about this? You live in a black community under the Trump administration, you walk down the street and say, ‘Wow, 98 percent who live in the community are African American,’ and you say, ‘Why don’t you build that grocery store? Why don’t you build that gas station?’ Wow, you’re right. I can. The programs that are out there, like in the Small Business Administration, you get as little as five or ten percent down, and they can maturize it to 30 years, and if you’re a veteran, they waive the fees. There are so many tools out there, and you saw the president when he adjusted Dodd-Frank last year; that was a terrible, terrible deal they did in 2009 and 2010 that literally almost just choked and killed the business community because of the Dodd-Frank, going in there and regulating these small community banks, which were life support for these small communities especially in the African American community, where he readjusted that last year and made it work. These are the things this president understands that as a businessman he can bring his lifelong talents to the White House and can help America. The biggest thing about this is, remember, the president is not beholden to any special interest group; this is a very key part of this conversation right here because he can go in there and govern without having to worry about paying back favors.”

According to NBC News analysis in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, Trump actually outperformed now-Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)–then the former governor of Massachusetts–in the 2012 election when it came to both the black and Hispanic communities.

“Trump claimed 29 percent of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday, compared to Romney’s 27 percent in 2012,” NBC News wrote. “With blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8 percent of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6 percent.”

If Trump is able to double support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020, as LeVell predicts he will, no Democrat will stand even close to a chance of defeating him; the margins they would need for victories in a number of states would be significantly eroded. Perhaps that is why the Democrats are now attempting to paint Trump as a racist amid his battle with the so-called “Squad” of socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasi0-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). The new faces of the Democrat Party, the “Squad,” in other words, is worried they may lose the election in 2020 if LeVell and other Trump backers are right. But the scurrilous accusations of racism for quick political gains, which have also been leveled at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Joe Biden in recent weeks, LeVell warns, may undermine the ability to stand up to actual racism where it exists.

“At first, it was kind of bizarre,” LeVell, who knows Trump well and has known him prior to his run for president, said of the false racism accusations. “Now, it’s just plainly un-American. It’s so anti-patriotic. You know, the interesting thing about it for me as a black conservative or Republican–I like to define myself as a Frederick Douglass Republican–most of the name-calling comes from people who actually look like me, 90 percent of it. It’s bizarre, and it’s because our thinking process is not lining up with theirs. It’s the only playbook they have, like I said earlier, which is, ‘Let’s just use the race card.’

LeVell went on to say, “Getting back to the president, I’ve been around him–I was just with him at the rally–in very intimate settings, behind the scenes at the rally, and you’re right: I’ve traveled with him, been on the plane with him. I’ve been in private meetings with him. I’ve talked with him, and you know–let me tell you something: I’m 55 years old, I’ve lived my whole life in the South, and I’m world-traveled. Let me tell you: I know racism when I see it. This man is nowhere near being a racist. It’s so sad because it does such a disservice to this great nation that they would throw that name and throw those words around. I mean, you have people calling Biden racist. They’re calling Pelosi racist. They’re calling the dog-catcher racist because he impounded the black dog instead of the white dog. Come on. What’s next? You know, it’s kind of sad because it’s pretty much watered down things that are legitimate, to where people are just going to get so numb with it, and people are just being like, ‘Wow, are you serious?’”
