The Merchants of Chaos con game explained

The best antidote to all of this is simply to understand it and watch how it plays out in front of your eyes


The following article sums up very simply and succinctly the  psychological operation being run on the people of this planet by what the author refers to as the Merchants of Chaos and who are also variously known as the Merchants of Fear or Merchants of Doom. The creation of fear in order to sell vaccines, drugs, newspapers, insurance, war, world government and so on and so  forth creates an environment that appears far more dangerous than it actually is. This of course depresses the hell out of the citizenry, which leads to the sale of antidepressants . . . . .

by L Ron Hubbard:

“There are those who could be called ‘merchants of chaos.’ These are people who want an environment to look very, very disturbing. These are people who gain some sort of advantage, they feel, if the environment is made to look more threatening.

“This is the merchant of chaos. He is paid to the degree that he can make the environment threatening.

An obvious example can be seen in newspapers. There are no good news stories. Newspapermen shove the environment in people’s faces and say, “Look! It’s dangerous. Look! It’s overwhelming. Look! It’s threatening.”

They not only report the most threatening bits of news, but also sensationalize it, making it worse than it is. What more do you want as a proof of their intention? This is the merchant of chaos. He is paid to the degree that he can make the environment threatening. To yearn for good news is foolhardy in a society where the merchants of chaos reign.

The chaos merchant has lots of troops among people with vested interests. And do not think it an accident that the current justice system will take a dangerous criminal, throw him into prison, make him more antisocial and more dangerous and then release him upon the society. The more crime, the more police are needed. Ideas of this kind are found in the society to a marked degree. It isn’t just the newspaper reporter or the politician; individuals here and there also engage upon this. A lot of people spend their whole lives as professional chaos merchants; they worry those around them to death. The percentage who do this may be as high as one out of four. For example, a housewife, operating as a merchant of chaos in her sphere of influence, thinks of her husband, “If I can just keep Henry worried enough, he will do what I tell him.” She operates on the idea that it is necessary to spread confusion and upset. But along with this goes a concern, “I wonder why Henry doesn’t get ahead?” Naturally, she is making him sick.

The truth of the matter, however, is this: the environment is not as dangerous, ever, as it is made to appear. Instead, tremendous numbers of people and vast amounts of money are manufacturing a dangerous environment. In fact, in the 1960s a huge proportion of the national budget of the United States was dedicated to atomic war. But if they hadn’t developed the threat, there would not have been one. The money that financed the horror was busy supporting the horror. It is not to the advantage of those who get their income, appropriations or public interest from the amount of disturbance to make a peaceful environment.”

“It is only the things which aren’t handled which are chaotic. …

“Disturbance and chaos fold up in the face of truth. It is lies which keep the universe continuously disturbed. The introduction of truth into a society would produce a calmer environment with less disturbance and therefore less that could be swindled out of that society by merchants of chaos.”
