For example, why did your boss lash out at you for no apparent reason? The question is easier to answer if you dismiss the conceited notion that it had anything to do with you. He was not responding to you, he was responding to an internal need – a need of which he himself may not be aware. Perhaps he felt a need to reassert his authority after just getting chewed out by his boss.
It is implicit in living in a society that many of the needs to which we respond are imposed on us by others. Most of these are legitimate, such as the need to keep your spouse happy or the need to buy your kids new shoes. Many imposed needs, however, are designed to trick us into doing something counter to our own interests in order to benefit someone else. Not a few of these self-detrimental imposed "needs" are false flags.
Obamacare, for instance, was sold as a need to provide medical care for the poor. However, if we examine what the un-Affordable Care Act actually does, it becomes clear that it is nothing more than a massive income distribution scheme, fueled by a need to buy Democrat votes and a felt need to impose government control over a large segment of the economy.
The global warming scam is being sold as a need to protect the environment. But the environment doesn't need protecting. If anything, we need protection from the environment (a protection that Obamacare is impeding, incidentally). The environment is quite capable of taking care of itself, as it has for billions of years, with or without the "help" or the insignificant damage of seven billion green plant parasites.
So-called "global warming" is obviously just another panic attack designed to induce mass hysteria – the descendant of overpopulation hysteria, global cooling hysteria, ozone depletion hysteria, and other false flag artificial "needs."
The U.S. Supreme Court's un-Constitutional decision on queer marriage is being defended in the name of "tolerance," but it is virulently intolerant of 97.3 % of the population of the country. Actually, the whole queer marriage question is a red herring. If all the queers in the country were to "marry," queer couples would account for only 0.85 %, or one out of every 117 of the married couples in America.
Besides, since queers can afford themselves all the advantages of marriage by simply having an attorney draw up a contract, the only reason they could have to assault the Christian institution of marriage would be to destroy Christianity.
Another obvious false flag is renewable energy, premised on the need to conserve our "dwindling" supplies of fossil fuels. But since we have more oil, gas, and coal right here in the United Sates than we could possibly use in the next 500 years, the need to conserve it rings hollow. Actually, of course, the resource depletion scam is a transparent and wrong-headed attempt to destroy Capitalism.
Of course, the destruction of Capitalism would be the destruction of civilization as we know it, but it's not unusual for the pursuit of false flag "needs" to obscure real life needs.
