Well, a lot of the mind control that the elites use depend on manipulating people's emotions, so I thought you guys would find stoicism useful.
Stoicism is all about getting rid of the harmful passions with constant training. What the stoics called passions isn't related to what we call emotions by itself but specifically the destructive impulses of our nature. It also teaches us to constanly think about solutions to everyday problems by training attention.
It is my favorite philosophy and trust me I've tried a lot. The "Apathy" that the stoics seek with their training is very similar to the Nirvana of Buddhism. In fact, both philosophies share a lot of themes.

There's a fine line between stoicism and falling into apathy. Know that the two are very different.
