Once I took a speech class.
The one I wanted, public speaking, was full.
These are usually pretty fun.
The one I got was “group dynamics.”
Probably because of the teacher.
I think a more decent professor would teach a better class.
But this one lady seemed to want to prove a point.
She would set these assignments for us.
But they were set up to fail.
Meaning she would give us some “basic directions” and then turn us loose.
But these basic directions were not nearly as detailed as we needed.
They were also purposely set up so we’d make some incorrect assumptions.
In which she would get to lecture us about why we didn’t do it right.
By the end of the semester, nobody had any respect for this lady.
In a lot of ways, this is how life works.
Hammurabi is credited with coming up with the very first law code.
A written down system of laws.
Laws that allegedly, nobody was above.
Historians don’t agree why, specifically, did he create those laws.
Did he really care about society?
And wanted everybody to live happily ever after?
Or did he, as some suspect, carefully create a system so the “elites” could kind of “loophole” their way to the top?
Or did he take power by force and then create a bunch of laws ONLY so everybody else who wanted power would have a much harder time?
Nobody really knows.
But history tells us that those who make the rules tend to have a “do what I say, not what I do” kind of mindset.
If we were aliens studying humans, we could arguably conclude that laws a really a means of keeping the riff-raff in check.
While the rich keep getting richer.
It’s very, very compelling to ask an authority figure what to do, and then do it.
As if that’s ALL you need to do to be successful.
Do what you’re told.
And you get a good job, a good relationship, and a good family.
That WOULD be nice, but it’s not really possible.
Historians have found that before the Industrial Revolution, most of society, up to 90%, for most of history, were slaves of some kind.
Serfs, debt slaves, or anybody that didn’t have complete control over their lives.
Who had to work FOR somebody else.
Staying poor while they get rich.
Whatever you want out of life, you can get.
But it’s not nearly as easy as doing what you’re told.
But once you understand this, it’s more or less mechanical.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
