WHY THE SOCIALLY ENGINEERED “NOTHING TO HIDE” MANTRA IS A GRIFTERS PARADISE
Perhaps it’s time for the human race (marks) to heavily consider the possibility that we are not dealing with a system of global governance for and by the “elite”, but rather a global con for and by the grifters.
Definition(s) of Social Engineering: management of human beings in accordance with their place and function in society; psychological manipulation conning people into performing actions or divulging confidential information; associated with the confidence trick known as the con.
Grifter: a con man; con artist; operator of a side-show at a circus, fair, ect; swindler or dishonest gambler. A person who swindles you by means of deception or fraud; scammer.
Con (slang for Confidence Trick or Confidence Builder): A confidence trick (synonyms include confidence scheme, scam and stratagem) is an attempt to defraud a person or group after first gaining their confidence, used in the classical sense of trust. Confidence tricks exploit characteristics of the human psyche such as dishonesty, honesty, vanity, compassion, credulity, irresponsibility, naïveté and greed. An individual who operates such scams is known as a confidence artist, con-man or con artist, and such people can operate alone or in concert with others.
Should you find these topics unchartered territory, an excellent series on Netflix, called Leverage, is both entertaining and educational in those areas—sort of a new twist on the old A-Team series. Season 3 has proven to be exceptionally open to even including perception management and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) in the storyline for viewers. The five main characters include the leader or con expert, a grifter, hacker, thief and ex-military muscle man. I think you’ll find it as enlightening as it is entertaining compared to (and paralleled with) the current global body politic, at the very least.
