Since it is a very common and oftenly used technique, which is applicable to many if nor any situations, perhaps it would be better to dedicate a whole page to it.
Here it is explained briefly:
Through this technique of Problem-Reaction-Solution, you can actually manipulate people to demand you do what you want to do anyway.
So it works like this: You want to introduce something you know the people won’t like…
First of all you create the Problem, but you get someone else to be blamed for it. You then report that problem through the media in the way you want it reported – because the media is owned by the same people who own the banks, etc.
This brings us to stage two, the REACTION from the people. You get the public to React to your problem by saying,”Something must be done; this can’t go on; what are THEY going to do about it?”. And at that point, THEY, who have covertly created the problem and blamed someone else, who gleaned that reaction of “Do Something”, then offer the Solution to the problems they have created.
This “Problem-Reaction-Solution” technique is not just used to create and control wars, it can also be applied to any situation where you want to produce a particular outcome. For example, this technique is currently being used to centralize power in the financial world. It can also be used to introduce new laws that restrict our civil liberties. So, whenever you see some big news story – whether it be an alleged terrorist attack, a run on a currency, the accidental loss of people’s data, or an allegation that some poor country has developed nuclear weapons – the first question you need to ask yourself is this: “Who benefits from me believing this information?”
Apparently this technique is pretty old, at least since 301 AD or times of Roman Emperor Diocletian: Diocletian’s Problem-Reaction-Solution
Some say it is also called “The Hegelian Dialectic” aka Thesis-Antithesis-Synthesis in action, applied to the modern world in its politics, economy, power centralization, etc. The main thing: it is implemented largely and mostly through the Mass Media.
