    Satisfaction, part five

    Please would you take a look at the fifth part of my text, "Satisfaction" and correct my mistakes.

    Whenever there is some kind of conflict or war between two or more nations, the first victim of them is the brain. It is not easy to mobilise citizens of a country for sacrifices and suffering in the coming war if there is no apparent reason for it. This is especially difficult if two nations or countries have been living peacefully side by side for a long period. Their everyday lives, culture, habits and even family relationships have become so intertwined that a government or leaders willing to start a conflict have to take full control of citizensí brains. The most effective way to do that is to create fear, anger, disgust and joy. These are the primary emotions, which have been necessary for our survival for thousands of years. They are pre-programmed and easily triggered. Once they start, it is difficult to control them. Even if people try to suppress them, they will continue to be present subconsciously. This is the moment when the leader comes on the scene and steers these emotions towards the target. He will get help from the propagandist and the media. They will prepare specifically chosen news and information, which will create a new reality in the recipients.

    Gradually, ordinary people like workers, civil servants, housewives, pensioners, students and the youth will start having feelings towards the other nation or country they have never felt before. They will never doubt their feelings and they will believe they are their own. In the end, they will accept war as necessary to stop the evil. They will cheer when the first skirmishes begin, and they will be disgusted when they hear what the other side has done to the innocent victims. They will never hear negative information about their own military or anything that could arouse doubts in the right cause. Years later, when the conflict has come to end, they will be crying and tearing their hair and asking themselves how naive they could have been. They will ask themselves what has happened to their brains, how they could have lost their mind and how they have been so deceived and confused. It will take them some time to understand what had happened and to admit their guilt. Without understanding the truth their brains will never heal, never reconcile with themselves.

    This pattern has been repeating itself for hundreds of years, with slight variations, but with the same goal and the same success. The last time people in Europe had a chance to witness what leaders can do to their citizens and their brains had been in 1990 during the breakup of Yugoslavia, when thousands of people had lost their lives in meaningless wars despite the fact that they had been coexisting peacefully for decades. After the end of Communism, they had chosen new leaders and were deluded by their promises, which in the end had led to the atrocities Europe had not seen since the end of the Second World War.
