Theory of Stupidity: Addictive ‘Brain Hijacking’ Methods of Social Media Platforms Harmful to Users

Theory of Stupidity 

Dietrich Bonhoeffer argued that stupid people are more dangerous than evil ones. This is because while we can protest against or fight evil people, against stupid ones we are defenseless — reasons fall on death ears. Bonhoeffer’s famous text, which we slightly edited for this video, serves any free society as a warning of what can happen when certain people gain too much power.

 Dr. Bruce Lipton explains  we have been programmed since birth and it has continued through Operation Mockingbird.  Our education, media, political and religious systems play an integral part of who we have become.  We have been guided daily through a world wide messaging system and are now learning they are using addictive “Brain Hijacking” to control us.

Addictive ‘Brain Hijacking’ Methods of Social Media Platforms Harmful to Users, Especially Children: Insider

December 21, 2021 Updated: December 21, 2021

Addictive “brain hijacking” methods used by social media giants to keep users on their platforms have harmful effects, particularly on children, according to industry insider Rex Lee, who says the companies may be violating child protection laws and consumer protection laws by employing such techniques.

Lee, who has over 35 years of experience in the tech and telecom industry, recently testified before Congress, speaking to members about some of the deceptive practices used by social media networks—in particular, “brain hijacking.”

“The first time I’d ever heard of brain hijacking, I thought it was something from a science fiction movie,” he recently told EpochTV’s Crossroads program.

He said that social media apps, including those developed by Google, Meta, and Bytedance, are intentionally developed to be addictive.

Part of what makes these platforms addictive is associated with brain hijacking technologies, which involve suggestive and manipulative advertising, he explained.

Lee, who works in the tech industry for an enterprise app and platform developer, said that he was shocked after coming across an admission in a 2017 Axios interview by Sean Parker, who served as the first president of Facebook.

In the interview, Parker said that Facebook was intentionally developed using addictive technologies associated with something he described as a “social validation feedback loop.”

“That in itself is what is at the heart of brain hijacking,” Lee said. “And what that does is that reassures the end user that what they’re posting on the platform is being accepted by a lot of people. In other words, a social validation feedback loop would be associated with a thumbs up, or confetti or emojis, and that sort of thing after they do a post.”

Lee said these are addictive qualities that developers put into their app and platform designs, which ultimately end up harming the user.

“Sean Parker actually admitted this during the Axios interview when he said, ‘God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains,’” Lee said. “But it’s not only the brains of children, it’s the brains of the end user, whether it’s an adult, teen, child, or business and user.See the source image

“This is why people are checking their smartphones up to 150 times a day.”

Lee added that Parker expressly told Axios that the feedback loop was “exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you’re exploiting vulnerability in human psychology.”

Lee has been providing to congressional committees, as well as senators and House members, insider information on how these platforms are developed.

The cybersecurity and privacy adviser also highlighted the harmful effects these social media platforms have on young teenagers, describing the platforms as “no different than tobacco companies making bubblegum-flavored cigarettes to sell to children.”

“These social validation feedback loops are what’s at heart, and why young teen girls as well as boys who utilize this technology can be harmed by it—they get addicted to it, they never can find fulfillment in it,” Lee said.

“And then, they end up depressed and they end up always constantly having to look for that validation, not only from the technology, but from the other end users on the platform.”

“This also is dangerous because it contributes to cyber bullying,” said Lee, explaining that cyberbullies themselves may become addicted to bullying others online.

“They [cyberbullies] get a few thumbs up from that post where they’re bullying somebody and then more thumbs up comes. And then that person, the bully, becomes addicted to actually  harming people, as well as the recipient starts getting harmed,” he explained. “And we all know what that leads to anxiety, self harm, as well as suicides. And all of those are up among teen and young adult adult users, especially young girls who utilize the platform.”

“Kids are being exploited,” he alleged, noting that social media giants may be violating a child online protection law—the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) enacted in 1998.

“It’s actually illegal for a child under 13 to use any type of technology that’s supported by predatory apps that are developed to exploit the user for financial gain through methods such as data mining and surveillance,” Lee said of the law.Mass Media -Media is a KEY LINKAGE INSTITUTION between the people and polic...

Lee said he analyzed the legal language on a Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone that was pre-installed with over 175 apps created or developed by 18 companies, including Chinese tech company Baidu. 

He explained that what’s often hidden from the user within the devices themselves is “the most important part of your terms of use.”

This includes the application permission statements and application product warnings “which describe in great detail how much surveillance and data mining that the tech companies can conduct on you.” 

“But they don’t want that online. They hide that within the devices, and some of those application permission statements actually contain product warnings,” Lee said.

“So again, another cigarette analogy would be, it would be like the warning for cigarettes being printed on the inside of the package,” he explained. “So that after you consume the product, you understand then that it commit that it can cause cancer, it’s the same thing.”

He added, “They’re hiding the product warnings within the application permission statements, which can only be accessed from within the device and not online.”

Lee said the FTC should be taking action to investigate these companies for related harm reported by their consumers, and enforce existing customer laws, particularly since former senior executives, such as Parker, have admitted that they developed these technologies to be addictive, “even at the expense of the end user safety.”

“We not only had these platforms weaponized against the end user to exploit them for financial gain through harmful technology, such as addictive apps, but now they’re using them to oppress people and spread misinformation, censorship, crush freedom of the press, and in other things,” Lee added. “It’s unbelievable.”

Foreign contaminants in vaccines

Japan found “foreign contaminants” in the  Moderna  vaccine that should be concerning to everyone. Doctors and researchers are now discovering just what goes into your vaccines, and are watching blood cells shrivel and clump in vaccinated individuals before their eyes using various forms of microscopy. They’ve found graphene oxide in jabs from all companies, which causes blood cells to clump and clot, and this action can be clearly seen even by the untrained eye.

Unmasking the Ritual of the Mask

When persons being held as slaves were accused by their masters of insubordination, or of eating more than their allotment of food, they might expect to be fitted with an iron muzzle. In his autobiography, Olaudah Equiano described his first encounter with such a device in the mid-1700s. . .

“I had seen a black woman slave as I came through the house, who was cooking the dinner, and the poor creature was cruelly loaded with various kinds of iron machines; she had one particularly on her head, which locked her mouth so fast that she could scarcely speak, and could not eat or drink. I [was] much astonished and shocked at this contrivance, which I afterwards learned was called the iron muzzle.”

Slave with Iron Muzzle is an illustration from the 1839 publication, Souvenirs d’un aveugle, by Jacques Etienne Victor Arago  (link).

There is much controversy today regarding the mandate of mandatory mask, perhaps some would say our iron muzzle.   The recommendations to wear mask or not wearing mask, come from  CDC, the US Department of Health and Human Services and the State Health Departments who are referred to as the  Global scientists aligning with the World Health Organization. Depends on who you ask and when you will get different answers.  If the masking would actually stop the spread of a deadly virus, there would be no hesitation from most people. But this so called pandemic seems to be very questionable. Ninety-four percent of Americans who died from COVID-19 had other “types of health conditions and contributing causes” in addition to the virus, according to a new CDC report. That leaves the  6 percent of those deaths directly related only to covid19 while the rest had at least two or more underlying pre-existing  conditions, including diabetics, obesity. heart disease, lung disease, kidney disease, dementia and hypertension.

In fact, people who are obese, who also have the coronavirus, are more than twice as likely to end up in the hospital and nearly 50 percent more likely to die.

So why the mask? Is it to create division?  Some believe they are keeping themselves and others safe while others feel it hinders good health,  our immune system; and even believe it falls in line with slavery and  satanic rituals.

The New England Journal of Medicine said in an article published in April 2020 stated,  ” We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”

“We are not defenseless against COVID-19,” said CDC Director Dr. Robert R. Redfield. “Cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus – particularly when used universally within a community setting. All Americans have a responsibility to protect themselves, their families, and their communities.”

It appears the medical community that has been silenced by Mainstream Media. Especially those who do not  believe the masks are beneficial, but yet communities around the county are making mask mandatory in order to work or go in to a business or even leave your home.  In Blaylock: Face Masks Pose Serious Risks To The Healthy, Dr. Russell Blaylock says that not only do face masks fail to protect the healthy from getting sick, but they also create serious health risks to the wearer. If you are not sick, you should not wear a face mask.

This is the first time in modern human history, an entire populace now faced each other, masked-up and social distancing. This was the first step toward chaos on the American street. Some didn’t realize the unintended consequences; some did and exploited this opportunity for the next step in manipulating society. The mandate of wearing masks or face coverings is  becoming more common in cities than suburbs.

The mask may represent the persona, the image you present to the world. Perhaps it means do not speak just do as you are told. Perhaps this entire pandemic is allowing you to take a fresh look at that image and also to look behind it, to discover your true self. It may have served you and supported your ego in the past, but possibly you are now beginning, or being urged, to see yourself in a new way.

For ceremonies  where masks are worn, they are viewed by both spectators and participants as consecrated objects imbued with supernatural power. Lets examine the four distinct, but interrelated, occult rituals that make up this massive global occult ritual initiation ceremony today: Ritual Mask-Wearing, Ritual Hand-Washing, Ritual “Social Distancing” and Ritual Lockdowns. Among other things, the wearing of the mask over one’s mouth is a token of submission, a gesture of your willingness to be subject to others who are not your usual Sovereign.

But there’s more.  According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, mask-wearing is:  “A form of disguise or concealment usually worn over or in front of the face to hide the identity of a person and by its own features to establish another being.”

In other words, the wearing of a mask may represent an occult transformation, a human alchemy, if you will , from one role to another.  From one manner of being, to another.  In this case, from individual sovereign under God to collective subject under the children of the devil,  a positive to negative transformation. The masking ritual is specifically designed to reverse the order of hierarchy  of Infinite Intelligence.  In the hierarchy of God, you are a sovereign representative of the divine.  Psychologically, as a spectator, you  are linked to the past through the spirit power of the mask.  So ask yourself , does your mask  represent malignant, evil, negative or potentially harmful spirits? Much to consider.

As the debate in schools regarding the mask requirement for children continues, it seems humanity has literally lost its moral compass by requiring mask for  the children. We all have our God Given immune systems to fight any type of disease and infection and we can develop herd immunity .  We simply have to nurture our mind, body and spirit by the foods we eat, the movement of our bodies, and by our thoughts, emotions and actions. God is closer than your heartbeat, all you have to do is listen.
