Masturbating the Lions


Masturbating the Lions

One historical way to keep a population content and docile, focused away from governmental abuses and the general state of their condition, is to entertain them in ways that are irresistibly rewarding. Especially effective are the biologically based rewards that have addicted our species forever.

These reinforcers have always produced highly pleasurable feelings and emotions which are accompanied by increasingly obsessive/compulsive thoughts and behaviors that become highly goal-oriented and directed away from the exploiting controllers.

It was so in the coliseums of a declining Rome and so it is now in the post-modern era of a declining United States of America.

Pornography, violence, gambling, and increasingly recreational marijuana are now available through our related technical and marketing venues.

Increasingly, addicting pleasures that were once illegal are being made legal and provided by a government. A massive all-controlling central government that first stimulates its citizen’s well-known hedonistic and self-destructive appetites and then taxes its populations’ increasingly frenetic addictive self-stimulatory behavior patterns.

The reality of legalized (and therefore taxed) prostitution and recreational drugs are now gaining momentum.

With eerie similarity,  B. F. Skinner spoke of clever trainers who once masturbated their lions to avoid being eaten alive.
