Brain Drain - Prelude to Orwellian Dystopia

Updated: Oct 3, 2019

Mother's Little Helper Gone Ballistic

The term Orwellian dystopia describes a society in which language is manipulated to control our minds and actions, where harming people can actually be seen as love. Words are not used to convey meaning but to undermine it, and our brains are manipulated into a state of cognitive dissonance where we are stealthily convinced to disregard our own perceptions and replace them with officially dictated versions, which then become our reality. The result is that our privacy of thought is violated, controlled, and then stolen as we give over to the barrage of propaganda and mind control efforts. And, while humans have had control issues since the beginning of time, what is going on now is light years beyond anything we have seen in the past. It is covert in nature, with a bottom line that is always the same – control equals power and money.

Large-scale strategies in mind-control techniques are troublesome, to say the least. But when it extends to the point of direct control through the introduction of pharmaceuticals to customize the interpretation of life’s experiences, we are moving even beyond what was described in the classic book 1984 written by George Orwell. Published in 1949, His themes center on risks of government overreach, totalitarianism, and repressive regimentation of all persons and behaviors within society. What we see today is frighteningly close to the storyline, but with a macabre twist – a co-conspirator Big Brother in the pharmaceutical industry to “assist” the government –No so convinced? Reading through the Brain Drain Chapter in Your Health Has Been Hijacked should help to bring more clarity to an increasingly dangerous threat to our personal freedoms.

What better way gain control than to subvert and convert through the covert. When we are taught even in utero that drugs are the answer to every little ill, then it is a short step into the wasteland of belief that we cannot live without our savior(?) drugs. Perhaps the first to bring the dark side of pharmaceuticals to the public consciousness was the group, The Rolling Stones in the ‘60s! So many of the folk and pop groups of the time told stories of cultural shifts and struggles. We were first made aware of Big Pharma’s large-scale efforts to control the minds of emotionally hurting people with their introduction of Valium in 1963. In the United States, it was the highest selling medication between 1968 and 1982, selling more than two billion tablets in 1978 alone. We were hooked, literally. The lyrics about Valium are quite telling:

Mother’s Little Helper

What a drag it is getting old “Kids are different today,” I hear ev’ry mother say Mother needs something today to calm her down And though she’s not really ill There’s a little yellow pill She goes running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day

At the end of the song a warning is given to mothers:

“Life’s just much too hard today,” I hear ev’ry mother say The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose No more running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper They just helped you on your way, through your busy dying day.

There was a lot of unrest from the '60’s forward that caused a lot of anxiety. Valium was there to answer the call. Fast-forward and we see that while addiction to street drugs is still a major problem, it doesn’t hold a candle to the drug pushers in the pharmaceutical world that began with the deception to help mom's along with their stressful and busy days. The white-collar drug pushers have made their way into medical schools, teaching docs that medications are the best and only way to keep someone alive. The docs get out of school and into practice and pass that message on to their patients. It is a true and inescapable fact. I supported that practice for years. So, what kinds of pharmaceuticals harm the brain? You may be surprised - From over-the-counter drugs like anti-histamines and sleep aids, to the classics – antidepressants, anti-anxiety, narcotics, etc, to incontinence, high blood pressure and cholesterol lowering drugs and others, they all ultimately harm the brain to some degree. Some change your conscious reality and steal your “you” without you even noticing. Your conscious life, or lack thereof, is then determined by a seemingly soft but very cruel pharmaceutical taskmaster. Your life will not be lived own on your own terms and you can lose your autonomy. You may lose your ability to fully experience intimate moments, your connection with your children, friends, and other loved ones. Just think about what it would be like for a young boy who is unnecessarily put on a mind-altering medication at an early age. His brain is essentially stolen from him. It may not seem so at the time, but it is true. Not that these scenarios will happen to everyone to the same degree, but you can bet that it will happen to some degree. There is no way around it. Do you really want to take that chance?
