Clutching at Straws

When a person feels overwhelmed from increased pressure of stress, they will generally accept any solution available in that moment to reduce that stress. This is referring to a basic Psychological Warfare principle, Clutching at Straws. This means to put the person in such disadvantage that they will try anything you suggest in order to get out of a desperate situation, no matter how irrational or unlikely it is to succeed. Literally it means a drowning person who, is unable to find any substantial flotation immediately at hand, and attempts to save himself from certain death by grabbing hold of a few stray pieces of straw floating on the water within arm's length.

Instilling confusion increases internal stress and it’s a way to destabilize the person so they will be easily manipulated to do what you want them to. Extreme confusion can put people into mental paralysis at such deep levels that they actually go into a trance like state. This extreme method of instilling confusion is a means of hypnotic induction, whereas the person becomes extremely suggestible to external forces, and can be influenced greatly by subtle forces of subliminal Mind Control.

We live in a world fraught with manipulation tactics. People that are controlling will always use manipulation tactics. Manipulation refers to making attempts at indirectly influencing or controlling someone else's behavior or actions. As human beings, our negative emotions often cloud our Discernment making it difficult to see the reality behind hidden agendas or motives in different forms of behavior. This is an important time to take care of ourselves and to note that this controlling and manipulating phenomena will increase in the environment due to the psychological and Information Warfare used to direct fear, insecurity and Confusion in the masses.[1]

Problem, Reaction, Solution

Increasing stress and confusion in the targeted business-person or in the masses is done on purpose to break them down so they go into self-doubt and become uncertain and confused about what is actually happening. Controllers purposely increase stress and confusion as a manipulation method to destabilize and weaken others, so they will be easily persuaded to go along with any solution the Controller offers just to reduce their stress. This is also called the Problem, Reaction and Solution tactic.

This works on the principle that a drowning person will clutch at a straw, so the Controller in his manipulation deliberately attempts to push them under water so he can then offer them the straw.[2]
