motivating and mind control
« on: August 23, 2006, 12:45:50 PM »
Please watch this video and tell me how you think it relates to "motivating".  I have said in the past that motivating is a stolen mind control concept, not invented in the Seed.

I've heard that song somewhere before.. I don't like it that much, no offense.  It sounds like REM (not to say I dislike REM or anything) but I don't know if they wrote it or not.. is that them?

Not motivating necessarily, but the whole concept of religion has always smacked of Straight/Seed, mind control shit.  Blind faith, emphasis on blind.

That song is from the Donnie Darko soundtrack. It's a Tears for Fears cover. The artists' names are Michael Andrews and Gary Jules.

The song is called "Mad World".  The Gary Jules version is waaaaaayyyyy better than the Tears for Queers version.

Well, thanks for the info on the song.  What about all the Muslims, from little kids, to adults with blood all over them, doing what appears to be in affect the same thing as motivating?

How does this relate to chanting in cults?  Segay to christianity and the arms raised and swaying?


I submit this is all the same function as motivating.  It 'surrenders' you to not only the speaker/dogma, but also the environment surrounding the speaker/dogma.

Someone tell me I am right or wrong.  I long for discussion on this topic.

I can see that, motivating was supposed to show how much we wanted to get called on which would prove how badly we wanted to 'get straight'.  Surrender.  Chanting is similar I guess, but in the context here it also seems to be more of a mind-numbing effect, like the nursery songs we sang.  Something to keep your mind occupied with fluff and dogma rather than allowing any critical thought to slip through.

For years I have wondered "where did motivating start" and "what was the genesis of motivating" and "who came up with the idea" and so forth.

The problem was this.  The St. Pete Seed clearly motivated.  People from the Cleveland and Ft Lauderdale seed ask "WTF are you talking about".

It finally struck me like a bolt of lightening.  Art barker didn't have a fucking thing to do with it.  We, us seedlings, appropriated it from religion and introduced it into the seed on our own. And from there it grew into the monster you see here

http://www.thestraights.com/video/motivate.rm

 In fact, I was there when it happened. But our motivating was a little less extreme.  We snapped our fingers and shot our hands up and down rapidly.  The Straight brand of motivating was just more of the same, and formalized.  This explained why "motivating" occured in the St Petersburg Seed, but not in the Cleveland Seed.  And how the Straight got it.

It was our gift to you.  That is, us St Pete seedlings.

Now, watch the video again.  pay particular attention to the arm actions of the participants and the looks on their faces. then please, make a comment.
