The only thing to Fear is Problem Reaction Solution (Hegelian Dialectic)

Georg Hegel

"Mark this well, you proud men of action! you are, after all, nothing but unconscious instruments of the men of thought."

Keep People Afraid

The Hegelian Dialectic is a simple idea, but extremely powerful. It people can be kept in a state of fear, they will literally do nearly anything they are told to do. This process is also called Problem Reaction Solution.

Here is how it works. Create a problem or a belief that there is a problem, wait for the desired reaction, then provide the solution. The purpose is to further an agenda. If a new law is to be introduced, one that the people would not go along with, a perfect way to get that law passed is by manipulating the public into demanding it.

People will demand that something be done if there is a big enough problem. Governments have used this technique all through history to manipulate people. They tell the people, through the media, about something they should be afraid of. They then repeat this story as many times as it takes to achieve the desired reaction from the public. Once this is accomplished, the people are afraid and demand that something must be done. The government then presents the solution. The solution is always prepared in advance and furthers the desired agenda. It works every time, and on massive segments of the population.

As long as the people believe what they are being told the outcome will always be the same. This is absolute manipulation and an extremely powerful form of mind control. As soon as the people stop believing the story, it's all over with.

If you can convince someone that you have the solution to their problem, they will do whatever you tell them to do. If a problem is perceived to be serious enough, people will do almost anything to avoid it.

If our government can keep us afraid, we will do what they want us to do. This is why everything we are told is deliberately designed to frighten us. It is no different than how a cattle prod works on a cow. The cow will do nearly anything to avoid the prod. Our government herds us like cattle, not with a prod, but with Problem Reaction Solution. The cattle prod does not need belief for it to work, but Problem Reaction Solution does. We have to believe what they tell us for Problem Reaction Solution to have any power over us. All we have to do is stop believing in the garbage they tell us. They cannot control us by fear if we refuse to believe them. There is no reason for us to live our lives in fear. It is time for this to stop. It starts with understanding the Hegelian Dialectic (Problem Reaction Solution) and how it is used to manipulate us.

The Hegelian Dialectic- Problem, reaction, solution

President Gerald Ford

"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have."

"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have."

Self-sufficiency is Freedom

There is a huge difference between people who are self-sufficient and those who are not.

A self-sufficient person is dependent only upon themselves. Self-sufficient people cannot be manipulated into giving away their freedom, because they create their own freedom. True freedom is created by being self-sufficient. Those who are dependent only on themselves create their own life and do as they wish.

It is a much different situation when people are dependent on others for their survival. Someone who is dependent cannot make their own choices or decisions. They must always have approval from whoever they are dependent on. If they do the wrong thing, dependent people find themselves in a load of trouble. When someone else provides everything to you, they can take everything from you. A person in this situation is held constantly in a state of fear. At any moment everything could be taken from them.

People who are afraid tend to do what they are told. This is especially true when the person telling them what to do is who holds the power.


"Courage is knowing what not to fear."

Scared People are Easy to Control

Scared people do what they are told to do. If someone wants to control another person, one of the simplest ways is to make them afraid. There doesn't even have to be anything that is really worthy of generating fear. There only has to be a belief in something worthy of being feared.

If the government can make you afraid, they can get you to do nearly anything. All they have to do is act as if they have a solution to the problem. It makes no difference if there really is or is not a problem, or a solution for that matter. They only have to convince the people that there is a problem and a solution. If the majority of the people believe there is something to be afraid of, that is all that is needed. It's really very simple once you understand it, and completely obvious too.

Founder of The Weather Channel John Coleman

"Global Warming: It is a hoax. It is bad science. It is high-jacking public policy. It is the greatest scam in history."

"Global Warming: It is a hoax. It is bad science. It is high-jacking public policy. It is the greatest scam in history."

It's all to Scare You

They want us to be afraid. Constantly, we are being bombarded by everything horrible this world has to offer. They tell us how awful our planet is and how it will surely come to an end.

Global Warming and Climate Change are some of their favorites. Talk about promoting fear. The government and media speak on this issue as if the case is closed, but there is no consensus. In fact, many scientist disagree with Global Warming. When water vapor is considered, the threat of man-made Global Warming is laughable. However, If we buy into this story we will do things that we otherwise would not do. Carbon taxes have the potential to bring in billions of dollars for governments. No one has ever lied just to get some money have they? Surely not. The Club of Rome is where the idea of using climate and environmental issues as a way of manipulating the people came from. We are all being told we must modify our behavior because of Global Warming. It is ridiculous.

Global Warming will destroy the planet (problem). Something must be done about Global Warming (reaction). Pay carbon taxes and modify your behavior to suit our agenda (solution).

It is widely believed that news outlets don't run certain stories because they don't want to scare people and cause a panic. Yet, here we have the news, constantly saying that things will be dramatically altered in a way that Earth may no longer be able to support life.

They are constantly telling us that we are all going to die, but they do not want to cause a panic? What?

They constantly report on viruses, infections, and diseases killing people. Then after that, they tell you about the side effects of the prescriptions you have been told to take to treat the viruses, infections, and diseases that are killing people. Often the side effects listed are worse than the conditions that need treatment. You will either die from the illness or the treatment, one or the other. That is what they do, and you're not supposed to be afraid? No, this is intentional. This is deliberately done to keep you afraid. If you are afraid, you will do whatever they say. Flu season is here, you better rush right out and get a flu shot. We don't even know what is in the flu shot, but we do what we are told, because we are afraid.

Ebola, West Nile, Zika, SARS, Bird Flu, Swine Flu, the Flesh Eating Virus, are you serious with all of that? An epidemic could break out at anytime, they tell us. Anyone with any sense at all should be frightened.

Stories about scarcity of food, water, and other resources are constantly coming in a steady stream from the so-called authorities.

War and terror are constant headlines. People are killed by terrorism each year, that's true, but the news makes it look like terrorism is one of the leading causes for death in our country. It is no such thing, not even close. Terrorism ranks very low on the list of things that actually pose serious harm to our lives. It is intentionally and completely blown out of proportion to strike terror into your heart. The news uses terrorism to terrorize you because they are terrorists.

We are constantly being bombarded with things that could only generate fear. When all of this is combined and seen as one message, it becomes the message of fear. This toxic message is so pervasive in our culture that it cannot be avoided.

The way they talk about gun crimes would make you think that America is just this bloody playground of violence and murder. It is no such thing. Some areas of the country are bad, but the numbers concerning gun violence in America do not justify what is being portrayed by the media. Restricting the 2nd Amendment, and taking away the rights of the people, are unacceptable solutions to this relatively insignificant problem. They have taken a few cases and massively inflated them to create the perception that there is a need for something to be done. Problem Reaction Solution? Create a false perception about guns, wait for the people to cry out, repeal or modify the 2nd Amendment. It is no more complicated than that. Americans will find that they have been stripped of their right to keep and bear arms if they do not begin to realize what is happening.

Gun violence is near the very bottom of the list of things that cause death in the United States. When things like self-defense, suicide, and justifiable killing of criminals by police are figured in to the equation, the manipulation should become very clear. There is absolutely no justification what-so-ever for the outrageous and unfounded position the government and media have taken on this issue. It is absurd and the whole thing has been designed from the beginning to manipulate the people into demanding guns be made illegal. The people will eventually vote their own rights away if the government gets its way. Why would they ever do such a thing?

The Founding Fathers said they put the 2nd Amendment into the Constitution so that if we ever had a tyrannical government we could do something about it. Maybe this has something to do with why they would desire to manipulate the public into demanding that guns be made illegal. Do we have a tyrannical government? It seems that they might have a very good reason to do whatever they can to make guns illegal.

Research into these areas often reveals that much is hidden. Most of the things the government and media talk about are grossly over exaggerated or just flat out untrue. Why would our news do anything like this? Aren't they supposed to keep us informed with truth and knowledge? Why would they attempt to keep us in a constant state of fear?

If you can make someone afraid they will do what they are told, that's why.

Hermann Goering


"The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country." - Hermann Goering

A One-sided Story

Politics is a science, that is why we have political science. There is a method to it. The people you see on the news are not actual reporters who go out and get the story. They do not research things and then tell us the truth about what they have discovered. They just read the prompter. They are just telling us whatever they are told to tell us. They better do it too, or they will lose their jobs.

If news script readers know something is false, there is nothing they can do about it. The people on TV have to tell us whatever they are told to tell us. It is never the whole truth or a complete picture of what is going on. We are only told what those who write the scripts want us to be told.

Where does the script come from? The mainstream media is completely controlled by the government. The government is controlled by corporations. Corporations are owned by international bankers. International bankers? Who controls them?

When it comes to world affairs and national news stories, what you see on the news is only the version of events that you are supposed to know. Nothing more, nothing less. When we watch the news, we are getting only one side of the story, their side of it. If we don't go outside of the mainstream media, their story is the only one we will ever hear.

If there is any question about how mainstream media really works, a study of Operation Mockingbird will clear things up very quickly.

David Rockefeller


"We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity." - David Rockefeller

They Need Fear

Governments are not here to help anyone. They are here to control us. "Govern" means control, "ment" means mind. Government literally means control mind. They have to control your mind if they want to control you, and they certainly want to do that. This is why politicians often talk about "hearts and minds."

The government is here to control us and make sure we do what they want us to do. They don't care one bit about any of us, but they do need us to support whatever agenda they have. Therefore, they use the news and media to manipulate us into supporting their agenda.

The reason they promote all this fear is so we will go along with whatever they tell us. If they can provide enough fear, the people will vote and act accordingly. This is how they get the people to allow them to do nearly anything they want. If we did not have all this fear, we would not tolerate the vast majority of the things they do.

They need us to be afraid and do what we are told. The whole thing will fall apart if we don't cooperate. They do not want self-sufficient educated people who are capable of taking care of and thinking for themselves. They want people who are dependent on them. If we don't support and go along with what they want, what real power do they have? None. None at all.

All of their power is completely dependent on the public going along with it. They do not want us to realize this. We hold the power, not them. It is not us who are dependent on them, it is they who are dependent on us.

The very instant the people remember this everything changes. They don't want you to realize this, and they will do anything to prevent you from doing so.

President Abraham Lincoln

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."

Stop being Afraid

The United States of America is the most powerful country in the world. This is the nation that defeated Hitler and went to the Moon. There is nothing that poses any real threat to us. People are not going to kill you on the street. There is no actual scarcity of food, water, or resources. The planet is not being melted away by Human activity. There is no disease that can wipe us out. We are the most powerful, wealthy, educated, and technologically advanced country this world has ever seen.

What, for one second, makes us ever think that we cannot survive anything? These false threats are promoted to get us to do things, believe things, and go along with whatever the agenda is. We are being manipulated to accept things we never otherwise would accept. We are compliant based completely on fear, fear based mostly on lies.

Any decision made in a state of fear is going to be the wrong one, unless it's reactionary to a situation that involves direct specific danger. Rabid dogs and politicians are really not that far off from one another, but one justifies a fear based reaction, the other does not.

On second thought, if we were to react to politicians the same way we do rabid dogs, we might be better off all the way around.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt

"In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way."

"In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way."

We only Know what They Tell Us

Our only way of knowing anything that is going on with politics is through the media. Everything that media gets comes from above them and they don't even know if it is true. They just read the script and try to sound important while they do it. The media only tells us the official version of events, not necessarily the facts or the truth.

Even the information on the internet is controlled. We need to understand this. If they did not want us to see it, it would not be there. Governments all around the world filter internet content. What makes anyone think that "ours" would be any different than all the rest? If you can see it, you were allowed to see it.

Every single thing that they tell us was planned in advance. They plan every single word before they tell it to us. This is not an accident, this is on purpose.

Nothing that happens in politics is a random event. Every single aspect has been planned, down to the very detail, just like a movie. Everything we hear and see is carefully constructed to tell us only the precise version of the story they want us to be aware of. The people directing and writing the script for the movie called "Life on Planet Earth" are very powerful and they know what they are doing. Everything is unfolding the way it is because that is how it was planned to be.

We don't know what is actually going on. We only know what they tell us.

We don't really Know Anything

It would be impossible for us to ever really truly know much of anything outside of our own personal experience. Everything we know is just what someone else said.

We read it in a book, but that book was just some stuff that someone wrote down. The news is the same, it's just what someone else said. Magazines, articles, newspapers, all the same. It doesn't matter where you turn for information. Even science and history text books are stuff that someone wrote down, based on what someone else said. Unless you have performed scientific experiments for yourself, the only thing you know is what someone else said. The whole of our education has come from what other people said was true. If you were not physically present, then you only can ever know what someone else said. This is true about all of it. Then, if you were physically present, you must rely on your memory to know what was true. How reliable is the Human memory? We have no idea in the world what is actually going on. This is a very good reason to never be arrogant about what we think we know. We do not actually know anything.

Everything is filtered through the beliefs, opinions, and agendas of whoever is issuing out the information. Beyond that and according to Quantum Physics, the mere act of observation changes whatever is being observed. Those changes are dictated by the thoughts, ideas, opinions, and beliefs of the observer. Then, we filter the information through our own ideas of what is possible. Even what we think of as our own ideas of what is possible have been formulated based on all that other information that we have received from other people. Have any of us actually ever had an original thought?

Other than what we directly experience for ourselves, everything we know is just something someone else told us. All our lives have been this. What we think is true is only the culmination of what we have chosen to believe.

Much of what we know is simply what everyone agrees on. A consensus happens when everyone agrees that a certain thing is true. A consensus reality then, is a reality in which the truth is just what most people believe. It makes no difference if it actually is true. It only matters that it is believed and agreed upon. It has nothing to do with truth, facts, or reality. At one time the consensus was that Earth was flat. That was the consensus, therefore the reality. Everyone knew it was flat and those who disagreed were treated very poorly. What, in our society, does everyone agree on and accept as reality that is nothing more than a consensus? Is it possible that future generations will think of our consensus reality the same as we think of the reality of those who believed the Earth was flat?

Today, our consensus and reality is being formed and molded by powerful people who have a very specific agenda. We have never seen those who are really in control of things, but they are manipulating our reality. They are doing so based on the consensus they are creating. If Humanity is going to move forward in a positive manner, we are going to have to come to terms with this and stop being manipulated by Problem Reaction Solution.


Jason Horne (author) on October 30, 2015:

Thank you. I agree, it is kind of a choice. Am I going to live in fear or not? It seems to me that there is only fear and love, that is our choice. I watch very little TV, mostly News, and I always assume that what they are telling me is not the truth. I do think turning off the TV is a really good thing to do, but is not necessarily the only solution. I think that when we become aware of these things, and stay aware of them, they lose their power, the spell is broken. Always stay aware.

Nancy Yager from Hamburg, New York on October 30, 2015:

You almost need to isolate yourself in order to avoid the fear that is all around us. The solution given by most people is to stop watching the news. But I know longer buy into this, the solution seems to be to watch the news and laugh at the ignorance of it all. Enjoyed your article very much.
