LONDON, Feb 18 – The Tory Cabinet Office 'Behavioural Insight Team' was set up a few months ago to devise psychological initiatives to manipulate people’s behaviour. According to a report by the Independent on January 4th, “Shame, vanity, laziness and the desire to fit in are all to be used as tools of Government policy by ministers acting on the advice of a new psychology unit in Whitehall”. It was also reported that the secretive cell is tasked with "dreaming up psychological tricks to alter our behaviour" - and to do this on a massive scale in order to 'nudge' the public into politically acceptable "Social Norms".
Glenn Carter west end theatre star and president of the UK Raelian Movement commented: "It is a shame to witness our government new attempt to control our thoughts and opinions without much protest.”
Glenn Carter states that this is by no means the first time that governments have behaved in this way nor will it be the last. “Manipulation techniques have been utilised throughout history by all governments in all countries. Here in the UK attempts to manipulate our thoughts have been commonplace. Most recently using misinformation or uncorroborated scare tactics. For example: stating that 'Human therapeutic' and 'Human reproductive cloning' are in some way a different process, which they are not!
The Recent Blair governments 'dodgy dossier' scandal successfully guided mass public opinion to support the armed intervention in Iraq. The more recent Brown Governments misinformation and alarmist tactics increased taxes to fight a mythical man-made global temperature increase known as (global warming) being another.”
“The real issue that we, as individuals, must face is this: For these mind control attempts to work, we as individuals must be willing participants.” explains Glenn Carter. “ 'Brain washing' itself is a myth. Not only do experts show that it doesn't work, but one can see it if one looks through history where totalitarian regimes such as the soviet union and china have attempted to stamp out religion over decades and failed miserably.”
The Raelian philosophy states that each individual is responsible for what is happening to him or her in every circumstance. During his 'Happiness Academy' teachings, Rael, spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement, emphasizes that responsibility, encouraging the participants to make their own choice, being aware of the many influences around and denouncing the negative ones whenever possible.
“We as individuals must challenge ourselves every moment” adds Glen Carter, “asking the difficult questions of ourselves. We must take personal responsibility. Each decision we make has an implication. We must take the time to consider the implications that will inevitably follow any apathy or willing corroboration we make and hence decide carefully who we allow to manipulate us. I consider it as part of the Raelian mission to inform the UK public that it has a choice and that manipulation is not inevitable."
