A Canadian researcher (and conspiracy theorist), who focuses on the “causative forces behind major changes in historical development” and believes that culture is “created and altered by those in control, always to lead the people like sheep into the next pasture,” believes that videogames, of course, are a part of this process.
Alan Watt has written a series of books on the subject and operates a website entitled Cutting Through the Matrix. In a YouTube video, Watts says about humanity, “The average person is so out of touch, so incredibly out of touch, with the only true reality there is, that it’s a different world all together. They cannot tell fact from fiction anymore.”
On entertainment in general he offers, “You cannot be entertained today and enjoy it. If you watch any of these movies… as soon as you’ve identified with these characters, you’ve lost it and you’ve been indoctrinated. They are downloading into you.”
Watts then says that America’s Army is “just like the Manchurian Candidate” in terms of its programming of players. He continued:
They are putting money into videogames to get the children hooked on a fantasy, to train them to just kill the enemy target when they go abroad. No doubt in this game they’ll be using the clothing of the target that they will eventually be set against. That’s the kind of world we live in now.
And you think you’re all free. You think that your children are free and here you are being indoctrinated and allowing your children, not just to be indoctrinated, but to be basically brought up with a military mentality and a killer mentality and you think that’s ok.
He thinks that all videogames were designed in order “to create generations of soldiers.”
In a recent transcript posted to his site, Watts offers another take on videogames:
In this society, as I say, they've already been weaponized, the children, with video games that were meant to desensitize them into killing. And they're doing an awful lot of killing abroad. Incredible killing. And enjoying it in fact, really enjoying it, as we've seen from the exposés from Wikileaks and others. They really enjoy it.
If you look into the military websites, you'll get shocked at all the photographs they put up there to send home. Putting their fingers in the hole of their first kill and so on, it doesn't matter who it is or what it is. And you're supposed to be proud of these characters.
