“Nudge:” How The Left Forces Their Agenda On You While Claiming You Still Have Free Choice

I have addressed this book on several occasions. It was written by one of Obama’s henchmen, and it explains how the Left has devised a plan that allows them to force you to do what they tell you to do while claiming you still have free choice.

Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness

Every day we make choices—about what to buy or eat, about financial investments or our children’s health and education, even about the causes we champion or the planet itself. Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. Nudge is about how we make these choices and how we can make better ones. Using dozens of eye-opening examples and drawing on decades of behavioral science research, Nobel Prize winner Richard H. Thaler and Harvard Law School professor Cass R. Sunstein show that no choice is ever presented to us in a neutral way, and that we are all susceptible to biases that can lead us to make bad decisions. But by knowing how people think, we can use sensible “choice architecture” to nudge people toward the best decisions for ourselves, our families, and our society, without restricting our freedom of choice.

This is all Progressive ‘word-games.’ There is no ‘choice’ in any of this. You either do what they tell you to do, or they will make it impossible for you to do it. Mind you, it will still be legal, they just make it so hard or expensive, you can’t do it. This way, they believe they can tell the world they didn’t force you to do anything. You had a choice, you just didn’t want to pay the price for it. See, they are good people, you are the one who is too lazy or greedy to do or buy the things you say you want.

Honestly, this goes hand-in-hand with the Progressive’s congenital inability to accept responsibility for their actions.

Now, I know there will be many people who will object: saying that I am either over-reacting, or making this up out of whole cloth. Well, I’m sorry, but there are hundreds of stories that all indicate this is exactly what is happening. Here is just the latest that I have seen:

Pete Buttigieg to Americans: Get used to CRUSHING gas prices until we achieve ‘clean energy’ independence

Under President Trump, America became energy self-sufficient, and gasoline hit prices as low as $1.80/gallon. Oh, I know: if you try to check that now, every source will tell you this is a lie. Only, it is not a lie. I STILL HAVE MY RECEIPTS FROM NOV 2020! And they show that I was paying even less than that!

Biden took office and immediately took action to cut the supply of American oil. The result was predictable: gasoline costs spiked. Now, Biden is making moves that he claims are aimed at Putin but — ultimately — harm the American people by raising gas prices even higher while actually strengthening Putin in the process. And none of this is by accident or stupidity. This is all by design.

How do I know? Buttigieg just told us:

Until you start buying those expensive electric cars their buddies in Detroit want you to buy, they are going to keep making sure the gas prices go up, and up, AND UP!

By the way: this is the same lying two-step they pulled when GE was about to lose a fortune on its CFL investments in China. The American People didn’t want their ‘green’ CFL products so, what did GE do? They paid their government buddies some money in the form of ‘campaign donations’ and BAM! We have laws mandating the use of CFL’s. I mean, this is different this time. It’s not like the government is going to mandate the use of electric cars any time soon:

GM Surrenders To The Green Lobby — Calls On Feds To Mandate Electric Cars

Biden-Harris Administration Mandates Federal Government Purchase ZEVs

Government announces new ‘electric car mandate’ alongside big investment in EVs

Biden Sets Target of 50 Percent Electric Cars by 2030

California Mandates Electric Cars for 2035 and Here’s What That Means

I could go on and on, but why bother. Nothing in the Constitution allows for any of this. Neither the President or even the Congress have the authority to do any of this, but, hey! We have to save the climate, right? Yeah, another lie! But I won’t even bother with that one. No one who cares is willing to do what we need to do to stop this, so the whole world will be drug into this growing tyranny.

Hope ya’ll like eating Soylent Green

ADDENDUM

Nudge: The Final Edition

Now, the authors have rewritten the book from cover to cover, making use of their experiences in and out of government over the past dozen years as well as an explosion of new research in numerous academic disciplines. To commit themselves to never undertaking this daunting task again, they are calling this the “final edition.” It offers a wealth of new insights, for both its avowed fans and newcomers to the field, about a wide variety of issues that we face in our daily lives—COVID-19, health, personal finance, retirement savings, credit card debt, home mortgages, medical care, organ donation, climate change, and “sludge” (paperwork and other nuisances we don’t want, and that keep us from getting what we do want)—all while honoring one of the cardinal rules of nudging: make it fun!

  1. TY, Joe for sharing… was not aware of new edition… the first one was enlightening and laid out how goals have been accomplished in recent years… will get updated version… each day it seems the pedal is hitting the metal with more force… I thought when it was on the floorboard that was it… yet, it appears there is still more speed to gain… I ask myself each day how many more ways can I resist … May The Lord help us all

  2. Truth comes in waves. At the same time your article above came out, I also stumbled on a thread that outlined how the left programs kids against their parents. My mind is getting blown open to the tactics the left use against us. I didn’t consciously understand it before, but it’s becoming much clearer. Thank you for filling in a big gap.

    The left “want to create little revolutionaries. To do that they need to sever the bond between students and the parents they believe are raising their children to be hateful bigots.”

    The TLDR version is this: white males = oppressive, and shamed. Pick another gender = “oppressed” and now celebrated. Now their new ‘identity’ conflicts with that their parents endorse, so parents and their children are at odds, and the left has accomplished their goal of creating revolutionaries.

    1. You still don’t know how far this rabbit hole goes. Maybe I should write a post that exposes and ties more of it together? Just know this: most everything we see has been planned and carefully coordinated to cause the most chaos with the least effort possible.

  3. Yes, please do write more on this. I always felt something was wrong, but couldn’t figure out the tactics they were using, so it must be a really deep rabbit hole.

    It feels like the strategies are so advanced. Subconsciously I can intuit they are in play, but consciously have no idea what they are. How does one go about programming society?

    It’s like showing up at a poker game, not knowing the rules, and then realizing you are the patsy and everyone else is playing by rules you haven’t even been told yet. Seeing you are losing, but not knowing why.

    I’ve known of some high level goals – the WHAT – destabilize family, etc., but am only recently learning the tactics. Seeing folks blow the lid off the HOW, is really helping me. Huge personal gap. The more I learn, the more I can start to wake up others and formulate counter responses.

    More please.

    1. OK, give me a day or two. This will be a LONG post — almost a small book (a.k.a. a pamphlet). But know this: it includes everything from education, to entertainment (especially music), journalism, religion, ‘science,’ health care and government. It is all aimed at ‘engineering’ the ‘perfect citizen.’ We are dealing with people who are absolutely convinced that they have discovered a ‘scientific’ process by which they can intentionally ‘direct’ human nature/evolution. They are equally convinced that they are smarter than we are, and that they have a moral imperative to do this TO US — to ‘save us.’ The problem is, these people are literally insane — criminally insane. I do not say this lightly. I say it because I have read a great deal of their work and it all shows an utter lack of humility or wisdom. They just get these ideas in their heads and convince themselves they can do it, so they start making plans for how to make it happen without any consideration for what it means in the real world. Seriously: Hitler might not have liked Jews, but look at what the Holocaust was REALLY aimed at. He was trying to use genetics to create the ‘perfect’ race. NEWS FLASH! The people we’re dealing with are still trying to do this today!!!

    2. Liberty,
      Looking at the issue of how they control us: it is too much for a blog post. I literally could write a book on this subject. I am afraid you’ll have to settle for a series of focused posts aimed at individual vehicles of control. Even then, the posts I write will be little more than a summary with some help in where to start your own research. Please understand, I have researched this issue for 40 years now, and it is impossible for me to separate it all. I see a large part of the mosaic, so the best I can do is share small portions of it with you and hope you follow down the rabbit hole on your own. If you do, eventually, the pieces start to fit and you start seeing what so many others see. It’s like the Matrix: once you see it, you can never un-see it. So just be sure you want to know the truth. It’s not pretty.
