"You must remember, my dear lady, the most important rule of any successful illusion: First, the people must WANT to believe in it."

Libba Bray, from "The Sweet Far Thing"

Several years ago and based on knowledge, experience and observations, we developed a theory about mental processes, biases and deep-seated beliefs of the general population. We called this theory, the "Little Black Box" theory. This theory applies across the board to almost everything we believe in and everything we do in our lives. It is inescapable and what is in the "Little Black Box" determines, to a large margin, how our lives will turn out. It determines our thoughts, religious beliefs, sexual proclivities, our fears, our strengths, our weaknesses, our successes or failures and even our political persuasions. The content of the "Little Black Box" and thus a person's point of reference, begins to fill up at a very early age and the person is not aware, nor do they have any control of what is going into it, because it is determined by their early environment, along with a dash of their biological parent's genetics.

SIDEBAR: Hitler knew this so he developed youth camps to fill up young children's "Little Black Boxes", for diabolical purposes ..... to create adolescent spies to rat on the dissenters and to control the minds and behavior of an entire country. The camps were very successful for their intended purposes.

People behave in direct proportion to the content of the "Little Black Box" and in most cases they are not aware that they are behaving in this manner. To them it is perfectly normal. In fact, what is in the "Little Black Box" defines who they are early on in their lives ..... that is, according to our "Little Black Box" theory. Changes to the content of the "Little Black Box" rarely occur throughout a person's lifetime. When they do occur, it is almost always the result of some revelation, a violent act or accident, overpowering new information, (true or false) or an epiphany.

The theory is especially applicable to how people believe and act in the religious arena. It follows then that, if you are born into a Catholic family, there is a high probability you will remain a Catholic for the rest of your life. The same is true for political leanings and biases. It is intuitive then to say that, if you are born into a Democrat family, you will most likely remain a Democrat for the rest of your life, without any regard to the substance of what is meant by being a Democrat. It is equally true for Republicans. We call it blind party affiliation.

If you are born into a poor family, you are likely to remain poor. If you are born into a wealthy and privileged family, you are quite likely to follow the path of wealth and privilege. There are exceptions of course.

For this reason, people are very selective about what they listen to, watch and read. They virtually always listen to, watch and read about issues that are compatible and aligned with what is in their "Little Black Box". They analyze everything they see, hear and read in the context of their "Little Black Box". It is not a choice they make consciously. It is pre-determined and pre-programmed for them long before the age of consent. No matter how convincing an argument you make to another person, they will almost always yield to what is in their "Little Black Box" before all else, even if it defies principle, logic, reason and/or even common sense. This mostly likely accounts for Obamamania.

The fact is, a freshly born human being is nothing more than a giant sponge that absorbs everything that it hears, sees, smells, tastes, or touches in its immediate environment and all that it absorbs is, for the most part, locked into the "Little Black Box" for the rest of its life. The person is a slave to it, but is not aware that they are a slave because it defines who they are. They can be nothing else.

The "Little Black Box" theory explains many facets of abnormal behavior in the vast majority of humans. It explains radical Islam. It explains a Hitler, a Stalin, a Mao, a Mussolini, a Saddam Hussein, a Gaddafi and a Bashar Al-Asad (current brutal dictator of Syria) and it even explains an Obama. But it also explains why we are Democrats, Republicans, Baptists, Catholics, Protestants, Muslims, Mormons, communists, socialists, Marxists and a whole host of other belief systems. We are who we are because we have been "shaped" that way by genetics and by our immediate environmental influences. Unfortunately, none of this content is as a result of our own personal choices.

Our "Little Black Box" theory was completely vindicated after we watched the Presidential debate last Monday night and then watched the reviews of the debate on Fox News and MSNBC news. It was all so predictable. The Fox News pundits said Romney did what he planned to do, stayed above the fray and that he looked presidential, but Obama was petulant and petty. The MSNBC news pundits said that Obama came on strong and articulated his arguments well, but Romney seemed lackluster, offered no substance and was extremely weak on foreign policy. It was the same debate but with two different perspectives, dictated by what was in each of the observer's "Little Black Box". So ladies and gentlemen, we ask you, which "Little Black Box" is right? Which one represents truth? Which one is based on the foundation of individual freedom and liberty? Or is there no truth, just distortions of reality, as an evil companion to propaganda, hype and lies?

We used the "Little Black Box" theory to break apart the complexities of a half-white, half-black President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama. Obama's early life was shaped by his somewhat promiscuous white biological mother; a black biological father that abandoned Obama within two years of his birth; a Muslim stepfather from Indonesia where Obama lived for several years and attended Islam schools; his white grandparents that Obama lived with for quite some time because apparently, his mother didn't want him any more, or perhaps because she couldn't handle that he was black; a family friend of his grandparents, one Frank Marshall Davis, a known and active communist; several Muslim and mostly black friends while in college and those Muslims he met when he visited Pakistan in 1981; a radical, Chicago pastor, the very reverend and Black Liberation Theologist, Jeremiah Wright; a slum landlord, one Tony Rezko now in jail; and a domestic terrorist by the name of Bill Ayers who used bombs to punctuate a radical political agenda. Who knows how many other radical influences shaped Obama's early years and young adult life, due to its fractured and convoluted nature?

Even differing view points can agree that Obama's time on this planet hardly represented an idyllic life with two loving parents, a stable, structured household, strong morals and personal values and a positive work ethic, that is the foundation of an American way of life under freedom. What Obama absorbed from the day he was born was wild variances in multi-cultural life styles, double parental abandonment and vastly conflicting belief systems. He had to cope with white vs. black, Muslim vs. Christian, America vs. Black Africa and Muslim Indonesia and freedom vs. socialism or communism. These kinds of widely diverse conflicts in one's mind could only have produced a scrambled egg omelet for brains. Some of his presidential actions are a wide open window into the mixed-bag content of Obama's "Little Black Box".

But Obama isn't just conflicted he is dangerous. His "Little Black Box" is so filled with garbage and radical ideas from his childhood and early adult life, that his psychological profile would contain a plethora of red flags. That he was elected to president of the United States is largely due to the clouded and distorted "Little Black Boxes" in those that voted for him. That he still remained a viable candidate for a second term is not a mystery. It is the result of almost a century of progressive indoctrination and brainwashing, showered upon young, impressionable Americans by out-of-touch parents; a socialist agenda, power-driven government; public schools loaded with government propaganda; academia that dishes out a never-ending stream of liberal propaganda; the predominantly left-wing press that aids and abets the progressive ideology; and by foundations using vast sums of money to influence all aspects of American life. It is no wonder that the "Little Black Boxes" that exist in the minds of a large segment of the American people are so blinded to the American heritage of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness under a proud flag of freedom. It is no wonder that those dependent on government would shun self-reliance, independence and individual responsibility in the self-interest of maintaining their government handouts.

"The Parallax Prophecies" predicts that if the day ever comes that those with clouded "Little Black Boxes" are greater in number than those who believe in and practice the tenets of constitutional freedom and liberty, freedom will surely die, if it isn't dead already.

It is abundantly clear that the content of Obama's "Little Black Box" is not what is good for America.

One could ask, how long will it be before an Obama or succeeding government forms Hitler-type youth camps to fill up young children's "Little Black Boxes", for diabolical (or political) purposes ..... to create little spies to rat on the dissenters and to control the minds and behavior of an entire country? Could it come in the form of government-operated pre-schools, like has been proposed by the Obama Administration? If you don't believe that this is happening, read Beverly Eakman's article entitled "Obama's Early Learning Challenge and our Failed Education System" HERE, then decide!
