Subliminal Messages in Children's Programming


Properly parenting a child is among the world's most difficult and important tasks.  The parent's duty is to show their child the best path to being a quality individual, succeeding at life, building upon the legacy of their family, their ancestors, and making the world a better place.  A child's mother and father are obligated to rise to the occasion.  The existential perspective of the new parent is often elevated to such an extent that they immediately become a better person, realizing the monumental and timeless endeavor upon which they are about to embark and become their best self for the benefit of their child.  They obsess over their child, and he or she becomes more paramount than themselves.  Other times, the selfishness of parents permeates through.  They become lazy guardians, egocentric, or project their own sadness and anger onto their child.

In his poem My Heart Leaps Up, William Wordsworth wrote that "The Child is father of the man".  It is the mandate of humanity that each successive generation improve upon the last.  Even the world's greatest, most intelligent and gifted parent will still be humbled by the beauty of his or her progeny's mind.  The bigoted parents consider themselves better than their child.  Instead of admitting their own imperfection and lack of universal understanding, they posture themselves as a god.  They refuse to accept that the gift of their child was given so that they may learn, as well as teach.  The growth of their child is smothered, their world view is diminished, their confidence is hampered, and their aspirations are lowered.  The only true failure of a parent is one who does not provide for his child the faculties to be a greater success than they.  Happy, able people who raise children to happy, able adults are only achieving the least that is expected from them.  The world's greatest parents are those who were themselves provided the least from their own parents, yet gave the most possible to their own.  Each of us is bound by the constraints of our own abilities.  The effort that we exert using these abilities is a person's measure.

If the personality of an adult was shaped entirely by their parent's influence alone, the disparity of the human race would augment.  Angry parents would raise even angrier children.  Bigoted parents would raise even more bigoted children.  Intelligent parents would raise even more intelligent children.  Materialistic parents would raise even more materialistic children.  The gap between the classes and societal groups would increase and strife would become rampant.  Fortunately, a variety of forces contribute to creating the people that occupy this planet.  We learn how to act from our friends, from other family members, at our educational institutions, and through other avenues, such as the internet, which is creating all sorts of worldly connections which were previously impossible.

The role of schools in a child's developmental process has increased greatly over the past century.  Prior, parents were undoubtably the main force in their child's upbringing.  Many children were received their main education at home, then later brought it to the outside world.  Alternatively, the contemporary child receives their main education from the outside world and brings it home to their parents, who often are surprised, impressed or dismayed by the information they hear regurgitated to them.  Parents are having to do much less parenting and much more syphoning, filtering the barrage of positive and negative information which their children are vulnerable to absorb.  Choosing for their children the television they view, the websites they visit, the friends they keep, and the school they visit has become so important that the importance of the wisdom which parents directly give their children has been eclipsed by the choices they make on their behalf.  Teachers are increasingly more parental, but parents haven't become teachers, they've become decision makers.

Many adults credit television with teaching them many lessons used throughout their lives.  Children's programs are designed to teach lessons to the young just as adult programs are designed to illustrate a moral to the already grown.  Television has been a main educational force for the last century, imparting us all with a diluted version of the ethics taught in the books which we put down long ago.  As the world population exploded, it became necessary for television to fulfill the role of master.  Billions of people were to interact with each other and without knowledge which they could share together, confusion would have prevailed upon us.  By broadcasting the same image to so many people, we immediately gained something in common.  Television reflected the temperament of the people.  It showed us our true selves, comedic, dramatic, sometimes inane, sometimes violent, but sometimes poignant and intelligent.  It shaped Earth's humanity as we shaped it.

Television's historical importance was destined.  When it began a century ago, its progenitors knew the role it would play in shaping the world of tomorrow.  The world's most recent era is always its most important.  We've skirted past annihilating ourselves countless times.  None knows the great efforts done to preserve human life on Earth.  Without the force of television shining its light into so many households around the world, bringing with it disconnected emotion, thought and humor, we might not have even gotten so far.  The authors of the mass media have been accused of participating in a massive conspiracy to keep the people pacified and behaved.  Indeed, that theory has already been proven.  The goal of the governing class is to govern.  To maintain that status, they have trained the people to be governable.  

In order for television to take the role of parent, god and king, it needed to project upon its audience something worthy of awe.  To theater the people were already accustomed.  Shakespeare taught them to be experts at its tricks and tactics.  They were informed enough not to be outsmarted by ruses.  So, in addition to the usual semantic jokes, allusions and puns, another layer of ironic depth was needed, which came in the form of a code.  This simple letter-number code was used throughout the mass media since the inception of television.  It's present in music, film, television, products, stores and print, everything consumed by humans, by both adults and children.

The code is based on simple principals.  Every letter is assigned a number based on its position in the alphabet.  A.B.C. equals 1-2-3, and so forth.  The code's most important tenet is the "Rule of 3", defined as the vast overuse as initials of letters which contain a multiple of 3: C (3), F (6), I (9), M (13) , P (16), S (19), W (23), and Z (26).  This "3" group is also combined with the "catalyst" group: A (1), B (2), J (10), K (11) and T (20).  The remaining letters are used much less often and if possible not at all.  The code follows this formula so that the ideas which the "3" group of letters symbolize are strengthened in the conception of the public.  The code is ubiquitous.  Since the birth of the media it has been present.  That it is used in the same manner for both children's and adult's programming indicates the esteem which its authors hold the people:

The writers of the code are the secret society known popularly as the Illuminati.  They alone control the flow of media from its unknown origins to the people.  The code was invented so that the existence of this group would be effectively trivialized.  Because the public failed to recognize the pattern which was occurring in front of them, their tendency to suspect collusion was lessened even further.  If the code did not exist, the people would have perceived the Illuminati's existence much sooner than they did. 

The Illuminati used film as their apparatus for teaching the people.  Slowly over the decades, they have designed the media to match the lesson which they thought the people were needing.  They've treated us as a parent treats his child, keeping secrets from us that they thought us too immature to understand.  Good parents teach their children themselves, directly.  Instead, the Illuminati taught us in parables and riddles, codes and games.  Upon gaining the power of guardianship, they had no epiphany, they did not raise themselves up to their mission.  Instead, in their infinite conceit, they decided they were our idols, caring for us more in the way that a man cares for his dog than his beloved child.  They had everything in the world available to teach us, to give us and instead they thought they'd teach us a slow and painful lesson, a century long.  They forgot that the child is the father of the man.
