      Putin ally boasts that Russia interferes in elections by ‘meddling with your brains — we change your conscience’

      View image on Twitter

      Alexander Scherba - Putin’s advisor Surkov to those “who cry about Russian meddling in elections.” "Things are much more serious: we meddle with your brains, we change your conscience - and you have no clue what to do about it.”.ng.ru/ideas/2019-02-...

      .

      Just read this, early this morning; Thought I’d pass it along. Those who are more heavily involved in social media will likely be the most targeted.

      I found Scherba’s claim interesting.

      Claiming that their special brand of government is the ideology of the future, and calling it “managed democracy,” apparently the Russians believe that it offers merely the ILLUSION OF CHOICE. This “changing your conscience” technique being used by Russians on people in America as well as other countries, seems to be a form of mind control (commonly called brainwashing.) That is what is being claimed as their method to alter and control human minds with the use of psychological propaganda/techniques to reduce people’s ability to think independently, and thus cause them to change their values and beliefs.

      .

      An influential Kremlin adviser boasted that Russia’s foreign interference goes beyond elections — and actually interferes with consciousness.

      Vladislav Surkov, who’s credited with shaping Russia’s authoritarian political system using techniques borrowed from reality television, wrote a lengthy essay published in the Nezavisimaya Gazeta newspaper predicting that Vladimir Putin’s governance would influence the rest of the world.

      “We need to recognize, understand and describe the Putinist system of government … as the ideology of the future,” Surkov wrote, according to The Independent.

      Surkov admitted the Kremlin sought to influence Western democracies using the same techniques he has used to build what he calls a “managed democracy” in the former Soviet Union.

      The so-called “grey cardinal” mocked foreign governments investigating Russian election interference, and boasted that his propaganda techniques were even more powerful than hacks and other forms of meddling.

      “Things are much more serious,” Surkov said, according to Ukraine’s ambassador to Austria. “We meddle with your brains, we change your conscience — and you have no clue what to do about it.

      Surkov echoed conspiracy theories promoted by President Donald Trump and his conservative allies about a “deep state” bureaucracy managing U.S. democracy, which he said offered only the “illusion of choice.”

      “The modern model of Russian statehood begins on trust and rests on trust,” he said. “This is its major distinction to the western model, which cultivates distrust and criticism. And herein lies its strength.”

          Trying to interfere with free thought process. And free election process too. Who doesn't. All money - dark and otherwise - interjected by all kinds of donors - foreign and domestic, individual, corporate, fraternal - the 2016 was a mucked up mess. And of course - Facebook gets a pass. And we see our DNC and RNC bartering with Facebook for space on their corporate product - to this day.

          The best remedy from here on out - is to not vote for any candidate who accepts corporate, wall street, foreign or domestic super elite billionaire monies - at all. And accepts carefully only a certain amount of PAC or union monies too. Accept no singular donation above a certain amount. Period.

          How candidates engage once they have received all that money - is not always in our best interests. Fact. How many votes did Russia actually alter - unknown. How many registered voters' minds were made up and set in stone long before the 2016 election? Unknown too. But still - that matters. Russia can't be blamed for the 2016 in totality. We know that. WE LEARN FROM IT.

              It amazes me how much flim flam we are subjected to. I think the Russian meddling DID do some damage though, especially with those who were waiting to be “had”.

              They gave fuel to a fire that was already burning.

              Mean time their claims remind me of Trump’s claims. Hogwash.

                      This is something the GOP and Fox "News" have been doing for decades to persuade many white people in the USA to vote against their economic interest as well as to support racist, bigoted and misogynist rhetoric and policies. What is even worse is that people who are not persuaded by these tactics are not motivated to do anything to combat them. When a president and a political party that has 35% or less approval by the American people can control the government, there is something seriously wrong with what the 65% are doing, OR are not doing.

                          Yeah people . . . time to wake up, get off the pot, educate yourselves, invest in your party's candidates . . . and most of all vote . . . and make sure all your friends and relatives (at least the progressive ones) do so as well.

                                  Most of the 65% are not motivated to do anything by try to survive. The 35% pro Trump are part of the 1% group with all the money. Money = power.

                                      When this guy was voted into office, he had a much better approval rating. Now that the 65% have some representation in Congress (via the House) we have a chance to get some real legislation that is good for the people.
