Control the Mob Mind Using Aikido Guiding Principles
The essence of Using Aikido must be based upon harmony. Harmony is to go in the same direction. Thus, to use Aikido to control a Mob one must go in the same direction as the mob.
So the mob decides to hang somebody. Make sure no video cameras are on you when you yell out, “I’ll get the rope!”
You have now gone in the same direction as the mob, and, here’s an interesting thing, they now rely on you for something. So you have not only gone in the same direction, but you have taken the first step in putting them in another direction.
Don’t let go of the rope. As long as they want the rope, they will follow you. So lead them down an alley. Or suddenly stop and say something really weird. “I have to have a hamburger.”
I know, sounds funny, but somebody is going to laugh and go, “WTF?”
Now, a mob isn’t a bunch of individuals, it is a bunch of weak minds melded into one mind. As long as there is rage in the mind it is going to hang somebody. But if you can get one single person to laugh, then you have splintered one person off. You have brought this individual out of the rage and back to his own mind. So look at him, shove him away, and he will be glad to go.
What you are trying to do here is to splinter individuals off the mob mind. Do enough of this and there is no more mob. These things have a curve, and you have to supplant the mob mind with the desire of the individual to be himself.
Another thing you can do to try and mess up the mob is introduce another thought. Remember, the mob has one loose mind, and it can only hold one thought. So if you can introduce another thought, the mob will begin to self-destruct.
Marching down the street, looking for Johnson, you suddenly yell, “Wait a minute! It’s Smith we want!”
Argument bursts out. Excellent, the mob is now arguing with itself.
The point here is that you use the flow of the mob, take it over, and change the direction. Or, you split the flow of the mob. Or…you can actually come up with a variety of methods for derailing a mob using the concept of Aikido to first insert yourself, then alter the path of the thought.
But Aikido is unique in the application of harmony. The trick is to study it enough so that you have a larger mind tan a mob. Not just large enough to splinter from the mob by yourself, and stand back and watch, but large enough to encompass the mob with your own spiritual harmony.
And, here is the great thing, you can use the aikido principles outlined here to control any number of things.
A company is a bunch of individuals come together to a common purpose. You can derail or alter that purpose.
A government is a bunch of people come together, and governments are always being swayed this way or that depending on the person who guides it.
A marriage is a couple of people in common purpose.
Any of these ‘groups’ can be controlled by simply hijacking the purpose or somehow altering the path, and the easiest way to do this is with nothing more than a bit of simple harmony.
