Beware the Manipulators!

They are all around us. The manipulators, I mean. They live to pull your strings and control you like a puppet, as well as compel you to do what they want you to do, even though deep inside you don't want to cooperate. Beware the manipulators!

They are everywhere

Manipulators are everywhere we turn. We see them here on read.cash, social media, among loved ones and friends, in business, universities and in governments, more so in religions, just to name some, but certainly not all.

Manipulators are annoying. Unlike a nagging spouse who is direct and in your face, the serial manipulator utilizes subtle tactics to force their ways and beliefs upon you. If you leave yourself unguarded, the manipulators whisk you away into their spider web of lies and entrap you.

Social media platforms

Manipulators love to work on social media platforms. On read.cash a critical reader is able to spot them straightaway. They entice you with flattery and false greetings. "Hello, lovely read.cash readers, how's your day? I hope your day is going great, and kindly know that I love you all." What you should read between the lines is: Hey, read my article and tip me! Beware the manipulators!

This flattery is a blatant lie intended to deceive and lure you to read their article. A simple hello is harmless, but the extraneous and otherwise extended greeting is bait. Which one of these manipulators really cares for your wellbeing deep down inside? How many have sent you a tip or even reached out and helped you in your despair and misery?

More importantly, who can honestly say they love someone they have never met? Think about it and think critically.

It's the same on #Facebook. Oh, you have the maximum 5,000 friends, do you? Fantastic! Um, how many do you actually interact with? How many of your friends make attempts to bait you with a marketing scheme, entice you to join a Ponzi or pyramid scam as an affiliate? Their greed and lust for money knows no bounds. You are a means to their end.

How many "friends" entice you to show your flesh online after they manipulate you with false promises of money, gifts, marriage, and the ever enticing and flattering words, I love you?

Harsh but true

"Oh, you're being negative!" some will say. Not at all. The point of it all is to simply awaken you from your gullible slumber, to keep you from falling prey to ruthless and deceptive individuals who do not have your best interests in mind. They are determined to manipulate your feelings, beliefs, morals and actions for their own greedy gain and hence fuel their self-aggrandizement.

The manipulators in media

The manipulators work in the media. They write the news and opinion pieces. They write the lifestyle and sports pages to lure you to think the way they do, to get you to conform. They dangle the carrot before your hungry eyes and with convincing words beg you to take a bite. They distract you from what you should know or be concerned about.

The rank and file media goons are puppets, too. They are told what narrative to follow from their superiors above them, who in turn pass the orders down from their superiors. It's a racket to get you involved in group think as opposed to thinking on your own. Many people fall for it, believing that if it is news it must be true.

The media pushes you to buy this, avoid that, and most of all, to be a guinea pig and take the deadliest vaccine jab in the history of medicine and the world, and you do it willingly. Beware these manipulators!

Governments

In like manner, the governments of the world manipulate you. The leaders work to divide you along political ideologies. They are well aware that a house divided cannot stand, and that they are able to retain their power by keeping us fighting amongst ourselves.

They are corrupt. They are constantly in your face with false promises of safety and security, never able to deliver either one. You are on your own. They become really active when elections draw near. Beware these manipulators like robber barons, for that is what they are.

Universities

The manipulators are here in droves, too. They no longer teach, they indoctrinate. They tell you what you must believe. If you offer a counterargument to their narrative, what real education is, the professors shame you, lower your grades, and with the false argument from authority cast your beliefs aside: they have the PhD.

These are the manipulators of truth, the re-writers of history, the self-deluded masters of indoctrination, the likes of whom will reward you with a meaningless diploma if you conform. They wield the power; you don't because you place yourself under their wicked spell and go with the proverbial flow.

Religions

Here the manipulators are equally deceptive, if not more so. Sweet words pour from their poisoned lips like asps, all meant to kill your dreams and ruin your life.

These manipulators despise you and chase after their selves. They entice you to live your life as you will, oblivious to the eventual adverse repercussions. They want you to live as they do, tricking you and tickling your ears with juicy lies.

Gather wealth and possessions, they cry. Indulge the self because you deserve it. Come out of the closet and self-identify as anything other than what biologically proven science teaches.

In the end, the manipulators use and abuse you, they lead you to a life of ignorance, financial ruin, dissatisfactory lifestyles devoid of joy, and on the path to certain death. Beware the manipulators!

There are manipulators right. I think they should not really matter, they can try but we can always say No or help them if we want to. Since we can't banish them, let's learn to deal with them 🤷‍♀️

Very true. They are so full of themselves that they don’t even take time to read other people’s article or like it, let alone interact. But expect you to do it for them.

Nice article mate. Keep up the good work

Yes, precisely. Even the person who wrote the post I Was Scammed invited her family. That is exactly what scammers want - to drag others into their web.

Our relatives are also considered as manipulators. Since I'm already getting used to it, I don't really get to it anymore. Sometimes, you need to think more about yourself. Sorry if I bothered you. Is this comment cosnidered as a manipulation? Kidding aside, I'm just relate to this one as we've been manipulated unconsciously

Powerful truths. FB is a sham, a ruse to control your mind. Our city leaders are garbage. They are in politics for the power and money.

I've found few city councils to be honest. Most are there (as you state) to line their pockets with filthy lucre.

I guess it's a little bit about being open to manipulation. It may be the best protection wall not to provide that environment to those who will manipulate it. If you cannot prevent the manipulator, we must learn not to be manipulated.
