Thoughtless, at your own peril

"If you make people think they're thinking, they'll love you; But if you really make them think, they'll hate you."
- Don Marquis

This is a motto for all groups that attempt to direct the behaviour of others among them.

Al Qaida makes its followers think they are reasoning through the situation such that the only conclusion is to commit suicide and kill as many others as possible at the same time.

Television advertisers make us think that we need their products and we reason that theirs is the solution to our need (which in many cases does not even exist).

Leaders of religious sects have their followers believe that they are making a conscious choice based on the (limited selection of) facts at their disposal.

However, this mind-bending method only works with weak-thinking people up to a certain age. There comes a point where some people don't think at all, at which time they will accept the simple suggestions of anyone who has anything good to offer (no matter how fraudulent the offer may be).

I just ordered the Speed Fighting 101 system this afternoon, and I've spent the last couple of hours going over it. This system is right on. I've got to tell you how I heard about Speed Fighting 101.

"I'm a bouncer at a large nightclub, and once in awhile, well, just about every night, someone's got to stir sh**. Last night I heard a commotion aways off from where I was stationed. The place was crowded, as usual, and it took me a few seconds to get through the crowd."

"What I found when I got to where the commotion was coming from, was a gal, slight build, early twenties, holding this big guy face down on the floor. She had his shoulder, arm and hand twisted in such a way that he was about to ball like a baby, and everybody standing around was clapping and cheering."

"I asked her where she learned how to do that, cause she was just a little thing, and she said to check out Speed Fighting.com, so here I am. Great stuff, Lance! I'm gonna use your techniques for sure!"
