Skinner and Walden Pond Two … The Elites Vision Of Control

B. F. Skinner was a psychologist who had monumental influence over Government schools. Skinner followed in the footsteps of W. Wundt, G. Stanley, Hall, E. L. Thorndyke, John Dewey, and many others by helping to psychologize American education in a humanist direction, thus helping to construct our current Psychological culture.

Here are some excerpts from “Skinner’s, “Walden Pond Two.” These excerpts give us insight in what kind of culture Skinner envisioned.

245 — “We not only can control human behavior, we MUST.”
219 — “The New Order”
189 — “Psychologists are our Priests”
286 — “What is love except the use of positive reinforcement?”
278 — “Let us control the lives of our children and see what we can make of them.”

186 — “We can make men adequate for group living … That was our faith.”

134 — “Our goal is to have every adult member of Walden II regard our children as his own, and to have every child think of every adult as his parent.”

135 — “No sensible person will suppose that love or affection has anything to do with blood.”

108 — “History is honored in Walden Two only as entertainment.”
105 — “We are always thinking of the whole group.”
160 — “We are opposed to competition.”
139 — “The community, as a revised family.”

Conclusion?

This fictional account of Skinner’s ideal community is much like the language and laws in use today by the behavioral elite — describing their plans for your children, your schools, your country, your family, and yourself. How do you like your life and behavior managed and chosen for you by an elite who are intellectual pygmies, moral buffoons, above all else Christ haters?

It is my hope that people will be challenged to reconsider what are considered the givens of the current culture . Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.

  1. Quite grand “masters of the universe” plans. Yet it is pretend Christians , actual Molech worshipers, that make them real by handing over their kids and their credibility to these types.

  2. 134 is already being applied in today’s churches with respect to nationality. Every believer is thought to have equal rights to political power regardless of whether the country in which he resides is his own. This is nothing but baptized communism, and from here it is just a short jump to full-fledged community of children. Already public schools are the de facto half-way house.

  3. BEHAVIORIST

    Behaviorist the truth you twist,

    Existing human souls resist.

    Placing us inside a box

    Treating us as Goldilocks

    Searching for a perfect fit,

    Environmental schemes to fit,

    To coax, to prod, to poke, cajole,

    Overwrite the human soul,

    Lather rinse repeat each day

    Washing all our will away,

    Countless strategies impart

    Ways we may ignore the heart,

    Appealing to our brutish sense,

    Fill us with sublime pretense.

    Teach the mind tricks to perform,

    Steer us toward the absent norm,

    Free to make our own false choice,

    Getting us to speak your voice

    Until subconsciously we start

    To settle for the truth in part

    Toward the goal of fractured meaning

    Collectively then dazed and leaning

    With ripe anticipation

    Of duties full castration,

    Renewed social reformers

    Urge group mind on their performers

    Who sacrifice all rationale

    Left with but a witches spell,

    Calling up absurdity

    Repeatedly for you and me.

    Then fit with bit and bridle,

    Senses soothed, thought idle,

    Broken, trained to follow dumb,

    Anti-thesis the rule of thumb,

    Mind control their endless game,

    Worship is its other name.

    Layered confusion of a mess

    Further covers truth suppressed.
