The Psychology of Order Following

In 1961, Yale University Psychologist Stanley Milgrim conducted an experiment in an attempt to explain the psychology of genocide, and in particular how the Nazis could have done what they did. Participants in the study were 40 men aged 20-50 and were all led to believe they were participating in a study on memory and learning, to ostensibly see what the effect of punishment was on the ability to memorize content. 

There was an experimenter in charge of each session, as well as a “teacher,” and a “learner.” The learner was an actor and the real experiment was on the teacher, unbeknownst to him. The teacher was instructed to first teach a list of word pairs to the learner, and then later the learner was to attempt to remember the word pairings when presented with the first word of the pair. When the “testing” of the learner’s memory was taking place, the learner was strapped into what the teacher believed was an electric chair. If the learner/actor answered incorrectly, the teacher was instructed by the experimenter to administer an electric shock to the learner. The teacher was given a “shock generator” that had a “voltage meter” on it along with verbal warnings that read: “Danger, Severe Shock.” The teacher was instructed to increase the severity of the shocks for each wrong answer given. The learner/actor would deliberately give wrong answers, to which they would then feign distress and pain at being given shocks. If and when the teacher expressed a desire to stop or asked questions about the experiment, the experimenter would prod them along in a variety of ways and tell them they must continue. The highest voltage of shock was 450 volts which was supposedly fatal, but no actual shocks were given. 

Milgrim believed the obedience of the Nazis in carrying out the genocide of the Holocaust was uniquely a German characteristic but found from the experiment, and others like it afterwards, that the majority of men will follow the orders of an authority figure to the point of killing others. Of the replicated studies, the average percentage of US men who would inflict supposedly fatal shocks to others was 61%, and the figure was 66% for non-US studies. 

Milgrim wrote in an article in 1974 entitled “The Perils of Obedience” the following: “The extreme willingness of adults to go to almost any lengths on the command of an authority figure constitutes the chief findings of the study and the fact most urgently demanding explanation. Ordinary people, simply doing their jobs, and without any particular hostility on their part, can become agents in a terrible destructive process. Moreover, even when the destructive effects of their work become patently clear, and they are asked to carry out actions incompatible with fundamental standards of morality, relatively few people have the resources needed to resist authority.” 

This should stir the hearts and minds of people to the core. Something to note here is that in the Milgrim experiment, there was no hostility that had been fostered between the teacher and learner. How about when there is hostility fostered between groups of people? How about when a group of people is singled out by its respective government or governing body and the masses are told repeatedly such a group is bad for this or that reason, and something needs to be done with them? The Nazis are famous for using the defense that they were “just following orders” at the Nuremberg trials. History tells us that this defense was unacceptable and some of the Nazis were executed. However, this inexcusable defense was of no consequence to the burgeoning US intelligence apparatus at the time, and many Nazi scientists were incorporated into this network by way of a program called Operation Paperclip. The Nazi scientists went to work immediately for the OSS, which then became the CIA, on mind control experiments to be used on the American public and others worldwide, which continue to this day. Another government agency which is in the intelligence business is the FBI.

The FBI is a domestic intelligence agency and their primary function and role is in neutralizing elements that have been deemed enemies of the state, or “risks” to national security, while ostensibly being a law enforcement agency. The people or groups in question are not necessarily criminals or terrorists but are those in opposition to the political and social philosphy of the power structure. Today, the large group of Americans that have been deemed as enemies of the state by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security(DHS) are conservatives, and primarily white conservatives. The entire meme of “white supremacy” is a smokescreen meant to vilify white conservatives as being bad people that need to be contained or jailed. In addition to the label of white supremacy, they are labeled as domestic extremists or terrorists. I state these matters because FBI agents themselves have testified and written about this over the decades. Generally, would be government whistleblowers are successfully intimidated into silence and into just following their orders, keeping their heads down, their mouths shut, and existing like little mice.

US representative from Ohio Jim Jordan has revealed that at least 14 whistleblowers from the FBI have recently come to him with information that the FBI brass encourages agents to manufacture cases of white supremacy and domestic violent extremism to justify the ongoing hoax that white conservatives are a threat to national security. Many of these whistleblowers remain anonymous and keep their jobs while two brave men have come out and now speak openly about this. These agents are Kyle Seraphin and Steve Friend. Friend stated in an interview with investigative journalist and former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, on, that the general mentality of FBI agents is that of being order followers, although they know that what they are doing is fraudulent and unconstitutional. Friend stated that he objected to participating in raids and arrests of people present at the Capitol On January 6th, 2021. The people in question were guilty of misdemeanors who simply walked into the Capitol after they were let in by Capitol police. Think about this for a moment…if the power structure didn’t want people entering the Capitol it would have easily been prevented. They were let in to later point the finger at these people and yell “insurrectionist” or “terrorist.” It was a trap, and FBI agents were embedded in the crowd to incite and provoke in order to further the narrative of domestic terrorism. This is an old FBI/intelligence tactic. Antifa and Black Lives Matter, on the other hand, are portrayed as victims when in fact they caused untold millions of dollars worth of damage to infrastructure in their 2020 riots. To say this is a double standard is an understatement.

Kyle Seraphin says the same things as Friend. Listen to ex-Secret Service agent Dan Bongino interview Seraphin on Seraphin states that many agents are disgusted with the way the FBI is going about being a politicized and weaponized agency to go after conservatives. As a new agent, he was sent to Alaska to surveill an alleged white supremacist. This target was described by Seraphin as a regular guy who spent time with his parents and then went camping, meeting with no one nefarious on the several week long stakeout. Seraphin states that cases are opened on people for little to no reason, they are then surveilled and followed, their civil and privacy rights encroached on, and all in the attempt to further the narrative of white supremacy/domestic extremism.

Preceding the Holocaust, the Jews were labeled as enemies of the state and incremental steps were taken with the culmination being their extermination. Today, the media, government, and FBI have nothing good to say about conservative values or those that adhere to them, to the point of falsely employing the label of domestic terrorist. They label and surveill parents as domestic extremists who speak at school board meetings in opposition to the sexualization of their children in the public schooling system, and waste our tax dollars on chasing phantoms rather than fighting the real crime the ruling class is deeply involved in, namely child trafficking. 

“And all the nations shall be gathered before Him, and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates his sheep from the goats. And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.”  (Matthew 25:32-33)
