There is nothing more dangerous to a group of people, a government, or a business…than millions of BORED PEOPLE.
Bored people will complain and gossip just because they are bored. They will try to overtake the lead gorilla — just because they are bored. They will start fights because they are bored…
So if a leader does not have the economy to keep everyone busy, he must do one of these four things to keep the bored people occupied:
1) Give them tons of distractions so they are too distracted to scrutinize (football, pop culture, American Idol, reality TV, internet, a killer on the loose, a clown in the spotlight).
2) Create wars amongst them so they are too distracted amongst themselves to wage a war on you (religion, civil wars, CIA).
3) Dumb them down so they aren’t SMART — and bored. It is safer to have a nation of bored idiots than a nation of super smart people who can see what is wrong and strategically maneuver to win.
4) Control them with tighter leashes and lock up the monkeys that get out of line. Even if a distant relative says something “inspiring, truthful, revealing”, lock up the whole family and their friends – to prevent the virus from spreading. A leader can control his bored people BY FORCE to prevent any “creativity” from spreading.
At this time, our governments have found out that our boredom cannot be contained and controlled for much longer. We are bored with their entertainment and can see through their games. And because the economy is not doing too well, people can’t really buy into their material world and daydream. So, people are bored, frustrated, scrutinizing and complaining. There is an uncertainty about our economy, the future, and the WEATHER. People are so bored with everything, that they are beginning to demand something the leaders never expected the people to care about — and this is making leaders very nervous.
The people want TRUTH.
