The manner in which VIDSHE-manipulation techniques are generally deployed, are to “scare” people into accepting and following

based manipulation process can be indicated as follows…
evoke uneasiness by emphasising a Vulnerability that is currently experienced. Thus, focus on the individual's, group or society's inability to withstand and overcome the devastating effects of a hostile environment and concentrate on the likelihood of being exposed to the “real” possibility of being attacked, harmed or alienated. Either physically, mentally, emotionally and/or spiritually.
highlight and emphasize the Injustice of the situation, event or circumstances by underlining and amplifying the condition of it being terribly unfair to and a gross injustice against an individual, a group, community or mankind in general.
establish a climate of Distrust. Provoke and instigate doubts in the honesty or reliability or trust of the “competition”. Thus, to create and promote suspicion towards either other possible or alternative “remedies” and solutions that might exist. Establishing a firm foundationplugin-autotooltip__small plugin-autotooltip_bigDivide and rule (Latin: divide et impera), or divide and conquer. In politics and sociology is gaining and maintaining power by breaking up larger concentrations of power into pieces that individually have less power than the one implementing the strategy. for the planned problem-reaction-solution strategy.
accentuate Superiority. Indicate and establish the “undeniable fact” that one person or thing or service or religion or political party is much better, stronger, exceptional, more remarkable, the crème de la crème, …etc. than any other option currently available or offering a solution.
convince and assure people that a particular proposal or course of action will definitely reduce feelings of Helplessness and fully safeguard and protect our vulnerabilities for as long as necessary.
create a “safe system” and/or environment that is governed by dogmaticrulesplugin-autotooltip__small plugin-autotooltip_bigA prescriptive charter of permissible actions and banned activities as stipulated by specific and/or implies rules, regulations and/or legislation. that suggest, propose, promote and encourage relentless Expulsion - when we are truly convinced, agree with, belief in and regard the solution as the only real and liable “true”option - and which is accompanied by a dedicated preparedness to categorically reject and attack any form or format of “save-system-threatplugin-autotooltip__small plugin-autotooltip_bigRegardless, whether internally, externally, locally, nationally, globally, real or perceived.” with the necessary or required contempt and aggression.

- currently - is abused by people, companies, governments and/or organized religion, to promote an unproductivejob-centric mindset exclusively focused on self-interest, cosumerism and profit-seeking by establishing the following self-destructive and soul strangling psyche dis-eases…
No-matter-what-it-cost craving for approval A relentless encompassing seeking for acceptance and approval by a variety of external forces such as God, parents, peers, teachers, managers, supervisors, …etc. that often also has a subtle and unhealthy flip side of the coin that frequently surface as disapproval (i.e. if you don't approve, then you most probably disapprove).
Many people view and responsibility as the same thing, leading to many misunderstandings and unnecessary conflicts. The dictionary meaning - in short - of responsibility is “the state of being held as the cause of something that needs to be set right in creating these difficult or problematic circumstances. Thus, effectively surrendering our (personal power) to outside or external forces and thereby sustain an inner level of persistent feelings of helplessness.
A belief that external forces grants privileges and safeguard our vulnerabilities A belief that is based on the unconditional worshipping and following of various kind and types of idolsplugin-autotooltip__small plugin-autotooltip_bigI.e. celebrities, sports heroes, famous people, politicians, the rich, fashion models, film stars, an idea, a religion, a group, ..etc. that forms the foundation and unhealthy direction for how we tend to choose and decide. which then effectively weaves VIDSHE-model outcomes, approval cravings, lack of self-knowledge and blaming others together, in a suffocating straitjacket tapestry of a destructive guilt-shame-fear cycle.
