On the psy plane, folks often falsely purport to have indisputable authority. This is one method of exerting mind control. The very first thing to do, I feel, is to ask your psy guy or gal to show up in person, in physical form, at your doorstep. Then next, he or she needs to be vetted …
- Is he the real McCoy, or is that badge fake?
- Let’s say that, as far as you can tell, he is the real McCoy. Then why not get a photo of him and a photo of his ID, just in case you may be mistaken?
- Let’s say he seems to be the real McCoy … but he asks you to perform an illegal act … something contrary to the U.S. Constitution or contrary to the law … then, I would just say No! Call your local law enforcement representative.
- I’ve read that it’s ok to remain silent, and to ask to call your lawyer, when confronted with authority figures. I can’t find the reference right now, but I feel it’s most likely true.
In general, I feel we all learn to obey authority as toddlers. Mom and dad ask us to do this or that, and if we don’t we get a scolding. Because of this early childhood learning, most of us conform with public opinion more than we need to.
Unquestioning conformity with public concensus can make a person seem to ‘fit in’ better, because they don’t stand out as being different. For instance, I’ve noticed at some of the churches I’ve attended, almost all of the congregation wear black or navy blue. So, I would gather, in order to fit in there, one would consider wearing these colors.
But, suppose I don’t like to wear dark colors? What then? Well, sometimes there’s an option of attending a church where people wear clothing of more varied colors. So a change of social milieu can provide the opportunity to express our own preferences, and still fit in.
In general, I believe in looking at the urge to conform to societal expectations, and deciding, on a case by case basis, whether it’s worth it, in terms of personal fulfillment, to buck the tide. I feel there may be many instances when it’s not necessary to go along with people in authority unquestioningly. It’s better to ask questions, find out our human rights, and stand up for ourselves.
It seems to me that very many people pretend to have indisputable authority when they, in fact, have none. So that’s the thing to find out: Are they for real? Are they just pretending? And, what is my own indisputable authority in any given situation?
The time to take a cold, hard look at the facts, I feel, is when we feel a sense of being threatened by someone purporting to have authority over us. A good example is the cold call from the ‘IRS agent’. I’m sure you’ve all heard of that scam? It’s really a con artist calling, but people are sometimes afraid of the IRS, and so the con artist is sometimes successful in using these strongarm tactics.
Here’s the thing: Why be afraid? Why not get the caller’s name and phone number, then call the IRS and ask whether the caller was for real, or phony. I remember finding out, that way, that the IRS never calls and harasses people on the phone.
The best way to get rid of our fears about ‘the big guys’, I feel, is to gather more facts, and get clear on what’s really up.
Here’s my reading on the topic:
