It occurred to me in the many postings and readings I have done over the years that in an effort to gain control of a mass of humans and pursuade them to do the bidding of the tribe, society, to "kill others" they tend to suggest through supposition that those who don't belong are "others" and thus easier to put into a category so "killing becomes less of a struggle."
I am suggesting that if this works so well is is possible we could use this method in a more constructive manner. Could we "other" the monkey in us like Spock tries to "other the human emotional side" so the Vulcan logical side can be in control?
If this could be done to any significant extent how would a person go about achieving this goal, this strategy and what tactics would work? We can other humans, who are not really any different than we are, can we not other that part of us that gets us into the monkey dance?
Can we take those methods already available and morph them into some tactic of training that will allow for mind bending the self into "other-ing the monkey?"
