19 years ago today, Osama Bin Laden and his cult of brainwashed disciples slaughtered over 3,000 innocent Americans. Many refer to the hijackers as evil, but critical thinking tells the true story. These mass murderers were brainwashed to believe anything Bin Laden programed them to believe. Many of the hijackers held advanced degrees, yet Bin Laden brainwashed them into believing (so-called) martyrdom was preferable to living. This is how a cult leader can get people to believe anything. Emotional creatures are highly susceptible to brainwashing, and they will follow the leader with the loudest voice, much like a robot. Once the brainwashing has taken hold, the human-robot will worship the cult leader like a god, and the robot becomes emotionally incapable of discerning right from wrong. The cult leader can will lie, cheat, steal, terrorize and even kill, and the once normal human being, turned mindless follower, will feel zero empathy toward his cult leaders victims and an ever increasing sense of adoration towards the leader. Yes, even intelligent, educated human beings are susceptible to this phenomenon. No, its not because they’re evil or stupid, its because they’ve been brainwashed. American’s have witnessed this with Charles Mansion, Jim Jones, David Koresh. The world has witnessed this with Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini. Thankfully, these killers, along with Bin Laden, are gone. Yet the threat of the next cult leader is very much alive, because emotional creatures tend to forget the past and repeat it. Watch this short video and I’ll look forward to your comments.
