    A chemistry professor in a large college had some exchange students
    in the class. One day while the class was in the lab the Professor
    noticed one young man (exchange student) who kept rubbing his back,
    and stretching as if his back hurt.
    The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student
    told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while
    fighting communists in his native country who were trying to
    overthrow his country's government and install a new communist government.

    In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a
    strange question. He asked, 'Do you know how to catch wild pigs?'
    The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line.
    The young man said this was no joke. 'You catch wild pigs by finding
    a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The
    pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free corn. When
    they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of
    the place where they are used to coming.
    When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again
    and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and
    start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of
    the fence up with a gate in The last side. The pigs, who are used to
    the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat, you slam the
    gate on them and catch the whole herd.
    Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and
    around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to
    eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have
    forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept
    their captivity.
    The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees
    happening to America. The government keeps pushing us toward
    socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of
    programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned
    income, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant
    crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc.. While we continually
    lose our freedoms -- just a little at a time.
    One should always remember: There is no such thing as a free lunch!
    Also, a politician will never provide a service for you cheaper than
    you can do it yourself.

    'A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big
    enough to take away everything you have.' *

    It's what we would call mind conditioning. There is another experiment on monkeys which I will try to find and post here. Good post bro...and we in Singapore has been conditioned for 50 years.

    Well here it is.

    http://www.citehr.com/19353-organisational-conditioning-monkey-tale.html


    Here's an interesting story of an experiment done to analyse the process of behavioural conditioning in a group. The charecters are monkeys, but the experiment reveals in a humorous manner how people get conditioned in organisations!

    The monkey tale is as follows:


    Eight monkeys were put in a room. In the middle of the room was a ladder, leading to a bunch of bananas hanging from a hook on the ceiling. Each time a monkey tried to climb the ladder; all the monkeys were sprayed with ice water, which made them miserable.

    Soon enough, whenever a monkey attempted to climb the ladder, all of the other monkeys, not wanting to be sprayed, set upon him and beat him up.

    Soon, none of the eight monkeys ever attempts to climb the ladder. One of the original monkeys is then removed, and a new monkey is put in the room.

    Seeing the bananas and the ladder, he wonders why none of the other monkeys are doing the obvious, but, undaunted, he immediately begins to climb the ladder. All the other monkeys fall upon him and beat him silly.

    He has no idea why. However, he no longer attempts to climb the ladder.

    A second original monkey is removed and replaced. The newcomer again
    attempts to climb the ladder, but all the other monkeys hammer the hell out of him. This includes the previous new monkey, who, grateful that he's not on the receiving end this time, participates in the beating because all the other monkeys are doing it. However, he has no idea why he's attacking the new monkey.

    One by one, all the original monkeys are replaced. Eight new monkeys are now in the room. None of them have ever been sprayed by ice water. None of them attempts to climb the ladder.

    All of them will enthusiastically beat up any new monkey who tries, without
    having any idea why.
