WATCH: Scott Adams talk about TDS Awareness Path: According to Dilbert Creator there are FOUR levels of awareness

According to Scott Adams, there are FOUR levels of awareness in regard to your perception of Trump.


Lowest level of awareness: Trump is an evil bad man. ‘I have a bad feeling about him and that is his fault.’

Second level of awareness: Your reaction to Trump says something about you and you have to take responsibility for that, that being your own emotional state.

Third level of awareness: “None of us would feel the way we feel except for way the media unfairly, and illegitimately describes it.” Take the opinion out from any piece about Trump and just strip down the story to the facts and the story takes on a less significant influence.

Level Four involves the persuader. Have you ever noticed how many pundits with echo the same phrasing about Trump, “Oh, he’s dark.” Or “He’s a racist.” How many times did you hear that one? Why are they all saying the same thing at the same time? Is it because someone is working behind the scenes orchestrating things? According to Scott Adam’s something like that is happening and he calls this unknown monster, “Godzilla” and refers to him as “the persuader.”


Fascinating perspective from Dilbert creator, Scott Adams, and a challenge for my liberal friends: are you as open minded about yourself and your deep seated beliefs about Trump to hear Adams out and find out what these Four different levels of awareness are about?

He lied to the underwriter means he lied to the underwriter, not that everyone who understands that he lied to the underwriter is insane.

Many claim top-down orchestration, but they seldom prove able to provide evidence that it is happening.

Side note, if it's all true, where is my goddamn Soros check?

"Soft Power" exists and can and has been coordinated.

Google Edward Bernays, Women Smoking, "Living Rooms", and "Color Revolutions" "Gamergate Listserv"

Super interesting analysis by Scott Adams yet again! Thanks @WillPowers

TDS is not about politics. It's not about Trump's policies. It's about your own past and conflating your personal problems with Trump even though he had nothing to do with them.

Interesting that he's a father figure to others.

We know the AP puts out daily stories w ready made news blips around 4 am.

Scott Adam's is suggesting some writer at the AP is using powerful words? Perhaps an editor?

How could he know who this is?

It's probably a committee, I'd guess

GODZILLA is the intelligence community lead by deep state actors such as Brennen, and Comey working hand in hand with the Democrats and the mainstream media, which is mostly left leaning to undermine this presidency.

Potus is doing a fine job all by himself - no need for anyone to get involved - just let him do his thing - incompetence day in and day out coupled with tweets in the morning he can contradict in the afternoon.

It's hard to argue with peace and prosperity though.

Trump is literally the most effective president of our lifetime.

Even if he's eating his moo on TV, it's not like it says in the Constitution he can't do that!

Maybe.

What if it's just 3 night-editors at the AP? (as a counter theory)

Interesting that we all agree on the phenomenon though.

I don't know if you've noticed but Trump's trash talking M.O. has been standardized since the 'The Apprentice' started. In other words, to use trader's speak, it's priced into the market. And thus, the fact that the Dems constantly refer to his trash radio persona as a winning point, only indicates how stupid they are.

Everyone knows that Trump is a sleazy trash talker. I'd even argue that it started with the 'Art of the Deal' generation. Yes, those would be my parents' cohort, since they were the first to realize that a conniving NYC real estate developer could become so popular and be a sleaze at the same time.

So in order for the Dems to beat Trump. they need to stop with the usual, YES, he's a trash talker. Sure, we already know.

Or two, get more education (Hillary speak), when white & blue collar jobs get regularly outsourced. And finally, don't fear illegal immigration because it "doesn't" put downward pressure on wages & increase local crime when in fact, it does exactly that.

And no, don't confuse that with naturalized citizens who have a full criminal background check before applying, which is another popular Dem misdirection.

We can also brings up more US troops in Syria but it looks like Trump already took that away from the Dems.

There should be a middle ground between "Trump is a complete disaster" and "Trump is the best thing that has happened to humanity". These political extremes make me mildly uncomfortable since most of population belongs to one of them, with little in between

There is but no one in places like Boston or NYC will mentioned anything remotely positive w/o getting backlashed by the rest of the white collar society. I believe that the a-political mainstream, who doesn't spend one's days on political forums or places like Harvard Law School, actually is fine with Trump's anti-ILLEGAL* immigration stance (*Note: Not naturalized citizens w/ full criminal background checks), lack of War Hawking in Syria, being tough on trade partners, etc.

Trump's basic nemesis are those who feel that Presidents must adhere to some feel good public persona, like a Bill Clinton or a Barack Obama, but then, turn around and pursue the same Cold War Hawk strategies as the Cheney-Bush clan w/o making it too obvious, while at the same time, enabling outsourcers and encouraging ppl to get more education just to increase their debt portfolio for jobs which won't exist down the road. These are the reasons why an outsider, like Trump, was able to tip the votes in the rust belt because those voters have heard the same malarkey for a generation w/o avail.

All what you say is true but it applies to TDS crowd (aka Trump can do not good). I think there is a YUUGE uncritical following of Trump as well, where everything he does smells as roses, even if it is constant backtracking on promises/threats, blowing out budget deficit which should be anathema to conservatives, etc.
I liked Ben Shapiro interview with Rubin (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93Ro_vfZcfk). They do not praise and do not demonize Trump, just analyze his actions. Interview was before elections.

I believe that that's a vocal minority of the Republican base. I know republicans, even in Mass/NH, and for the most part, they see Trump as a necessary evil because Hillary was the only other option. I wouldn't exactly call that love and devotion.
