- “Too Expensive” – A true story written by Leo Tolstoy (based on a tale by Guy de Maupassant) In brief: A murder was committed in Monaco king’s domain. They condemned the criminal to have his head cut off but didn’t have a guillotine nor an executioner. To borrow a machine was too expensive. They decided to sentence him for life. Gave him a guard to keep & bring food. It came out not cheap, either. They decided to get rid of him. He said he had nowhere to go & it wasn’t fair. They had to offer him a pension. That’s how the matter was settled. Read it in full, it’s funny.

- Love each other – “When people live everyone for himself, they cannot avoid taking away from each other, fighting, getting mad at each other, and so their life can’t not to be unhappy. For life to be a blessing as intended, people need to understand that our real life is not in our body, but in that spirit which lives in our body…” Tolstoy

- To God or to Mammon? – There is an old story about a monk who lost a bet to the devil. The devil gave the monk a choice of three crimes: murder, fornication, or drunkenness. The monk chose drunkenness, thinking that’s the lesser evil and he’d harm only himself. But when the liquor took over him, he lost control of his reason, went to the village and yielding to temptation of a woman committed adultery with her, and then murdered her husband in self-defence… “Let us understand that in the matter of consuming alcohol there is no half way & we must choose between two – serving God or serving mammon.” Tolstoy
- Flow of Water – In this parable, Tolstoy compares a teaching with a flow of water, which also from the beginning of the world was flowing without stop for us. And so we should pass it to our descendants, and so on, until the end of the world.

It was at the time when Christ opened to people his teaching. That teaching was so clear, and it was so easy and was so obviously going to liberate people from the evil that it was impossible not to accept it, and nothing could keep it from spreading around the whole world. And Beelzebub, the father and Lord of all devils, was alarmed. Continue reading Destruction of Hell and Its Restoration by Leo Tolstoy

There is a little, tiny, kingdom called Monaco between France and Italy, on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. There are less inhabitants in this kingdom than in some big village – only seven thousand. And the land, if divided among the citizens, wouldn’t exceed an acre per soul. But the king in this kingdom is real. And he has a palace, and courtiers, and ministers, and bishops, and generals, and an army. Continue reading Too Expensive by Leo Tolstoy

“No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”—Luke xvi. 13.
“He that is not with me is against me, and he that gathers not for me scatters abroad.”—Matthew xii. 30.

Watch the CNN press conference. Pay close attention how it played out. Observe how the “father of the killed girl” (in fact a crisis actor “Robbie Parker”) was faking grieving emotions in this hoax.
Once students found Confucius by the river. The teacher was sitting on the shore and was looking closely at the water, observing how it ran.
Students were surprised and asked:
- “Teacher, what’s the use to observe how water flows? There’s nothing special in it, that’s how it always was and will be”.
The first successful brainwashing was applied to the Christians.
What they do for religious or political brainwashing is work on the emotions until they reach an abnormal level of anger, fear, excitement, or nervous tension. This results in impaired judgement and increased suggestibility. They intensify this condition until reach catharsis, which makes mental takeover easier. Then they replace the existing mental state with new patterns of thinking and behavior.
“In the entire history of man, no one has ever been brainwashed and realized, or believed, that he had been brainwashed.”
– from “The Battle For Your” by Dick Sutphen
If you feel any TV, YouTube, or other show program became so irresistible to you that you have to come every day and watch it, – you are hooked up and brainwashed already.
Any study of brainwashing has to begin with a study of Christian revivalism in eighteenth century America. Continue reading Battle for Your Mind 1 – Televised Revivalism
