There is a common theme to control, a pattern spread all across the World.
What do Governments project? What does the media promote? what do religion instill? The answer to all three is “fear”. Fear of terrorism, fear of war, fear of hell, fear of death, fear of everything they can get away with…
Fear is what keeps control of the people. What do Governments fear? Those with no fear. Suicide bombers scare Governments because they have no fear. Fanatics scare Governments because they have little to fear.
If humanity had no fear there would be no control. How do you keep control of the fear? Labels and separation. Make every conceivable difference between each human-being (good or bad) matter. Make it so everyone is fighting each other than rather uniting together.
There is a pink elephant in the room, hidden in plain sight, protected by connotations, beliefs and ego. Fear can be removed, the illusion of control can be shattered and once it has the control has gone forever.
Fear creates the controls,
Separations bind it.
Beliefs allow the controls,
Unless of course you find it.
