“The Cult of Personality”. Ever wonder why the polls always seem to say to you, yeah but everybody likes Obama … now we face that problem head on.
Do you remember when Obama first took office? And he had this book list of recommended readings? Recommended reading, was a new book by the economists George Akerlof and Robert Shiller called “Animal Spirits: How Human Psychology Drives The Economy, and Why It Matters For Global Capitalism.” (“A White House Seized by the Animal Spirits,” TIME.)
You are being programmed, how do you deprogram the duped. They are trying to make our culture based on “cult of personality”. The Hugo Chavez way to total destruction. And this election is the whole ballgame for America.
Why does Communism outlast Fascism? Fascism is all about the dictator. He dies, and kaput. Communism is about the illusion that it’s all about the people. And that is what is scary about Obama. He is trying his best to be the next American Hugo Chavez. “The Cult of Personality” That’s what Obama’s people are trying to do, to you.
But telling the lie long enough … Audio: FCC’s Diversity Czar: ‘White People’ Need to be Forced to ‘Step Down’ ‘So Someone Else Can Have Power’.
The incestuous lust of Communists for control over the people. Only the truth should matter to you. You have to give up on “the cult of personality.” That just leads to ruin. Remember Hitler, the king of the cult of personality. And now the modern day Hugo Chavez. And now Obama.
And in his tome, Prologue to a Farce: Communication and Democracy in America, Lloyd had this to say about the First Amendment:
“It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.
“[T]he purpose of free speech is warped to protect global corporations and block rules that would promote democratic governance.”
Obama’s Czar Mark Lloyd’s FCC ‘Diversity’ Chief – His Take on Free Speech … And Lloyd’s rather disturbing perspective on Venezuelan Communist dictator Hugo Chavez’s “incredible…democratic revolution.” To go with Lloyd’s bizarre admiration for the thuggishly fascistic manner in which “Chavez began to take very seriously the media in his country.”
Now the Venezuelan media has become just a few State run channels, as the principals in the former media companies have all died, unexpectedly. And these reaming State run, State controlled, companies were waiting with baited breath for the near dead Chavez to return.
But watch this video below, and think …
OK you ask, but what about “The Animal Spirit”? It’s manipulating people by manipulating their Animal Spirit. Harnessing our animal spirits to serve the greater good. (Don’t we harness horses?) Required reading in the Obama White House.
“Animal spirits” is the term John Maynard Keynes (His ideas are the basis for the school of thought known as Keynesian economics, as well as its various offshoots, FDR was a Keynesian economics believer.) used in his 1936 book The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money to describe emotions which influence human behavior and can be measured in terms of consumer confidence. Trust is also included or produced by “animal spirits”. Several articles and at least two books with a focus on “animal spirits” were published in 2008 and 2009 as a part of the Keynesian resurgence.
“The colourful name that Keynes gave to one of the essential ingredients of economic prosperity: confidence. According to Keynes, animal spirits are a particular sort of confidence, ‘naive optimism.’ He meant this in the sense that, for entrepreneurs in particular, ‘the thought of ultimate loss which often overtakes pioneers, as experience undoubtedly tells us and them, is put aside as a healthy man puts aside the expectation of death.'”
The original passage by Keynes reads:
Even apart from the instability due to speculation, there is the instability due to the characteristic of human nature that a large proportion of our positive activities depend on spontaneous optimism rather than mathematical expectations, whether moral or hedonistic or economic. Most, probably, of our decisions to do something positive, the full consequences of which will be drawn out over many days to come, can only be taken as the result of animal spirits – a spontaneous urge to action rather than inaction, and not as the outcome of a weighted average of quantitative benefits multiplied by quantitative probabilities.
Keynes seems to be referencing David Hume’s term for spontaneous motivation. The term itself is drawn from the Latin spiritus animales which may be interpreted as the spirit (or fluid) that drives human thought, feeling and action.
Liberals are always trying to figure out how to control people. This their latest new-old theory.
