An Illustration of How Governments Manipulate Citizens to Achieve Covid Vaccination Goals

I am not an expert in the area of “nudging” and the use of psychological tools to manipulate people in order to achieve desired policy objectives, but I want to share this example with you for your consideration. This two minute CDC video is about Covid and the injection. Please watch it and try to list the messages embedded in it (whether true or false).

When you can, get vaccinated – YouTube

If you are like me, on your initial viewing you probably noticed things like: 1) people are often isolated and on their phone; 2) the coronavirus is floating everywhere; 3) the vaccine is presented as the only solution to getting our lives back; 4) people are wearing masks everywhere in public; 5) in general, the video is sort of infantile, as if adult citizens were children; 6) Some of the “facts” are untrue; Etc.

Those messages are important to note, but did you notice anything else under the surface? Go to about the 13 second mark where there is a transition from describing all the difficulties we’ve faced to the scientific lab….”there is a “light at the end of the tunnel. Vaccines are the key to getting us back to normal.” We have been reminded of all the emotional difficulties we’ve experienced and now are presented with the idea that the vaccines will solve our problems. At this point, whoever made this video has embedded sexual arousal…something that isn’t obvious but it is there. Have a look look at the two men on the right side of the lab. Watch their hands. Why is the stroking movement there? Are those phallic images I see in their hands? These kinds of tricks are often used to elicit an emotional reaction…subliminal sexual arousal is attached to the idea of a vaccine coming to save us.

Now turn to the 30 second mark where we are again taken to a public scene and we are told that “most of us need to receive the vaccine.” Then two giant needles pop into view. One needle is pointed at a church and another at a tree. It looks like the vaccine is being injected into the church and a tree. Is there a subliminal message embedded here too? Here is my interpretation, but you can decide for yourself what you think it means. The vaccine/science is a higher authority that overrides faith and God (church). The vaccine is also superior to nature (tree). The message, in my mind, is that the vaccines/science are replacing God/Nature as the ultimate authority.

Here is what the gene therapeutic treatments do. New instructions/code are delivered to your cells, which overrides the God/Nature-designed instructions. The new code tells one’s cells to start producing spike proteins. This is something one’s cells would never do on their own–they can’t. They weren’t made to produce spike proteins. Then your body’s immune system sets out to destroy all the cells in your body that are producing spike proteins.

In my mind, the subliminal message is that we should trust in the “vaccine” over God/Nature. This was the rationale I used to explain why I would not be vaccinated when I applied for a religious exemption, which was approved by my employer. I’ve heard Dr. Zelenko say a number of times that what we are experiencing right now is a test from God. Will we trust in and work with God and our natural immune system to protect us from the coronavirus or will we trust in the people who are bringing us the unnatural gene therapeutic “vaccine” solution? He says “good luck” to those who decide to trust in anything other than God and the natural order.

This short CDC video is just one illustration the many ways people are being manipulated without their knowledge. This is a significant ethical violation as it hampers individual autonomy, which is a prerequisite for informed choice on medical decisions. And I think this helps to explain why it is so difficult share information with people…they literally cannot accept anything that conflicts with the official messaging.

I would like to thank a psychologist who will remain anonymous for helping me see the subliminal messaging in this video.
