Film "Compliance" Examines Submission to Authority
June 19, 2021
Thank you for bringing this film to our attention. This film is very important! We all need to examine this topic of "authority" and compliance.
It's bad enough the milligram experiments,and the way the Germans behaved during the Nazi era, clearly demonstrated blind compliance to "authority". Tragically it is STILL a very common and dangerous thing. People did not learn from those events! Why? The same dynamic continues, seemingly forever- though I hope not. I do hope we all can break free of blind compliance to perceived "authorities".
As we discover the real events that inspired this film. It raises a lot of alarms for me, on so many levels. This store manager took orders from a faceless voice over the telephone. There was not any proof this was a police officer. She did not see the face behind the voice. And even if a man in uniform had showed up on the scene, she no doubt still would have complied unquestioningly. [*sic] Also there is an aspect of accusation, without evidence. The manager did everything the voice told her to do. No real evidence. No customer named. And no police report as some kind of evidence either. Heresay, like in the Olde days of Salem.
Regardless, it horrifies me that people think "authority" figures trump principle or conscience!
I mean how many cases have there been of criminals dressing up as police to commit rapes, thefts or other crimes? I have read quite a few. A few examples, as demonstration of how common these occurrences are. There are of course many more a simple search would turn up.
Whether impostors or actual police on payrolls, I do not trust them! Food for thought from a VERY INSIGHTFUL concise post:
So in the future, should I find myself ANY situation with police and they ask me to comply and ask me if I understand? I will state only two things. 1) "No, I do not understand" ( Translation: I do NOT stand under or recognize their "authority".) And 2) I want my attorney.
We all really desperately need to question the concept of "authority". Really scrutinize it from every angle. And question ourselves, why should we jump when any SELF PROFESSED "authority" tells us to? Especially when they demand we violate another human being! Shouldn't the principle known as the golden rule be more vital to all of us than blind compliance? What kind of world could we create if we put principle over compliance?
There is another film that profoundly addresses the issues of control and compliance. I cannot recommend highly enough. BTW the prison in the film is allegorical of the state the mass of humanity finds itself in today.
(Notice the hierarchy of control, and that we need recognize that people in uniform or position, are often the bully, abuser or criminal. A uniform does not equal morality!)
There is a book that addresses these issues more profoundly than any other book I have had the pleasure of reading. This book is a treasure. It is written very simply. The book is small, less than 100 pages. But packs a wealth of principles that are worth pondering, especially regarding the topic of "authority". Please look at the appendix at the end. Most people could read this in less than an hour. Time well spent IMO!

I wish share to a few images, as examples of this power/control matrix. Since a visual of the dynamic of hierarchical structure is useful. This is what I call the pyramid of control or manipulation. Man is easily controlled via the dynamics of hierarchy and compartmentalization. It clearly shows the hierarchical nature of "authority", as well as compartmentalization, which helps those at top retain control, not to mention keep people below them in the dark. The entire structure is based upon compliance to the "authority" in the level above. Until people free their minds of the conditioned response of blind obedience to SELF PROFESSED "authorities". People will remain trapped in this matrix that is designed to control and enslave them.There are many so called "authorities" in this structure. But what about the authority of self? And of conscience? The man who courageously stands against "authority" and rather acts upon principle would never blindly comply. This should not be uncommon. As I honestly believe that most people are good. But most people are conditioned and credulous which causes people to lose objectivity and discernment. There is one man who first comes to my mind when I think of an individual who stands upon principle against all "authority". Think of Mahatma Gandhi Jee. JFK also comes to mind as he attempted to free us from the grips of the International PRIVATE Bank cabal. They both were murdered for their integrity. But that should not dissuade us. If we all choose, we can unify. They can't take us all out if we are united.This is do-able! We can break this pattern! IF WE CHOOSE TO. Mindfully make the conscious choice to never harm another soul, especially if anyone else demands we do it.
Look at these images. We are all divided amongst ourselves. Falling for mechanical dialectics. ( Divide and conquer techniques.) The PTB at top are unified in their satanic agenda. We need to unify. And make principle supreme. Not "authority".
Come on, lets free ourselves and not comply in knee jerk reaction, and neither harm one another just because some borderline control freak ( "authority") tells us to.
I can't help but see all these invasions of our physical privacy in terms of the general induction of humanity into a satanic cult, the illuminati, whereby the rank and file is sexually exploited.
