Ty, I would never be so bold as to call someone dumb for misspelling (unless they by trade are writers), but with the availability of "spell check" and "grammar check" it should not happen near as often as it does.  I am however, pleased to see that there are plentiful "spell and grammar" OCD individuals on the forum.  I am admitted one as well.  Every day when I read media news articles, whether from local papers or posted on the web, etc., I immediately seize upon the first offense and can't help wanting to report it to someone, anyone - usually my wife (who doesn't care one whit!  It also has me taking an inordinate amount of time to type in a post on the forum as well 🤣.  I seldom use the basic spell check, but will look up many words using the online/google lookup.  As you can tell if you read my post(s), I do not use the grammar check at all and simply reread my sentences until I am satisfied that they don't ramble too much, LOL.  I do suffer from (RUSS) - run on sentence syndrome and have been known to obsess over acronyms also.  I once floated the idea that the USPS and the government was completely under the aegis of "FOAM" - Federal Office of Acronym Management.

The most prevalent misspelling I see in everyday business is the spelling of lose as loose or losing as loosing. I see it so often that I began to wonder if I was the dumb one and that the actual spelling of the word had been changed!

The brain works against you at times, often supplying you with the wrong spelling of a word based on the sound. I have read old English and old Scottish, back then people just wrote things as they sounded. Perhaps we are wired to do it. 

Another common one is 'whet ones appetite". I think the use of the word 'wet" mistakenly instead is due to speaking the phrase but, seldom writing it. Also, the phrase 'wet your whistle' is confused with it on some level in the brain. People don't really read the origin of words.

It's staggering that so few people can understand or see the historical context of what is being said in this video. History is one of the few reference points we have to help us avoid catastrophe. We're walking into the unspeakable and people are so indoctrinated that they can't see the parallels, the hypocrisy, or the conflicts in their own belief structures. Society is distracted and lost in sea of orchestrated irrelevance, while our leaders are walking us into this tyranny and a surveillance panopticon. I'd love to hear someone who disagrees with this video, yet thinks they believe in democracy, explain how what is happening in Austria, France or Australia in any way, shape or form, represents democracy. When the authorities are done with those that they are persecuting now, who do you think they will turn on next? You, the voter, the tax payer, the ones who elected them.

Has anyone ever looked at the World Economic Forum's "Strategic Intelligence" section? Looks like an organisation is planning our future, with or without us. Or is that a conspiracy theory?

It's a valued question, what do most of us believe in, in 2022? 
@Steven Kossor thoughts? 

“The State takes the place of God…the socialist dictatorships are religions and State slavery is a form of worship.”

Carl Jung, The Undiscovered Self

Since the birth of totalitarianism in the 20th century much has been written about this form of rule and millions have read George Orwell’s depiction of it in the classic novel 1984. But what is often overlooked is that totalitarianism is more than just a political system, it is a fanatical religion, and this religion is spreading across the globe with a ferocity not seen since the mid-20th century. In this video we are going to investigate the religious nature of totalitarianism in the recognition that we must know our enemy if we are to defeat it. Shortly after fleeing poopoo Germany, the political scientist Waldemar Gurian wrote the following:

“The totalitarian movements that have arisen after the First World War are basically religious movements. Their aim is not only to change political and social institutions, but also to remodel the nature of man and society.”

Waldemar Gurian, The Totalitarian State

Totalitarianism shares many characteristics with organized religions. For example, Christianity and Islam are built on the belief of a future golden age that will be ushered in with the second coming of Christ. Totalitarianism movements share a similar idea – but instead of a god or prophet that transforms the world, totalitarian movements are built on the belief that mankind can recreate the world and a new golden age can be constructed under the direction of the all-powerful and all-controlling State.

“. . .in consequence [of the decline of Christianity],” writes Carl Jung” the [religious] projections have largely fallen away from the divine figures and have necessarily settled in the human sphere…the [modern] “enlightened” intellect cannot imagine anything greater than . . . those tin gods with totalitarian pretensions who call themselves State . . .”

Carl Jung, Practice of Psychotherapy

This belief that it is possible for a centralized, all-powerful State to radically change society for the better is why Hannah Arendt wrote that:

“…[totalitarianism] is not a government in any traditional sense, but a movement. . .”

Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism

In the totalitarian movements of the past, this golden age was envisioned to be one of racial purity, or a Communist utopia of equality, efficiency, and prosperity for all. Today this totalitarian “golden age” is one in which mankind exists in harmony with mother earth, or in its more extreme form, an age where man merges with machine and transcends biological limitations of disease and death. Needless to say, totalitarian utopias never come to fruition, for as Karl Popper warned:

“The attempt to make heaven on earth invariably produces hell.”

Karl Popper, The Open Society and its Enemies

These utopian visions do, however, succeed in stimulating the religious enthusiasm of the masses and totalitarians use these visions to convince the population that the utopian end justifies any, and all, means – be it mass-surveillance, censorship, widespread oppression, mass-imprisonment, or even the extermination of groups of people. Or as Barry Goldwater explains:

“Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies. Absolute power does corrupt, and those who seek it must be suspect and must be opposed.”

Barry Goldwater

In the totalitarian religion, there are the chosen people and there are the sinners. The chosen ones naïvely believe in the possibility of a paradisal future and the ability of the state to be the vehicle to effectuate this transformation. They are the pious who follow the State’s commands with unquestioning obedience. The sinners are the non-believers. They are the heretics who stand in the way of the so-called “greater good” and prevent the forward march of history. To use an analogy offered by the Polish philosopher Zygmunt Bauman, the totalitarians see the earth as a garden to which they are anointed to cultivate, and the sinners as the weeds that must be exterminated to bring about the full flowering of the totalitarian utopia:

“All [totalitarian] visions of society-as-garden define parts of the social habitat as human weeds. Like all other weeds, they must be segregated, contained, prevented from spreading, removed and kept outside the society boundaries; if all these means prove insufficient, they must be killed.”

Zygmunt Bauman, Modernity and the Holocaust

But removing the weeds is only one part of the totalitarian religious movement; the remaining citizens must be turned into totalitarian true believers who inwardly assent to a life of strict conformity and obedience to authority. For in totalitarianism, the mere outward display of compliance is not enough. Like all fanatical religions, totalitarian movements seek to control the innermost thoughts of its followers. Referring to Mussolini’s fascist dictatorship in Italy, Giovanni Amendola explained:

“…fascism did not so much aim to govern Italy as to monopolize the control of Italian consciences. The possession of power is not enough for fascism: it needs to possess the private conscience of all its citizens, it demands the “conversion” of Italians. Fascism makes the same claims as a religion. . . It does not promise happiness to those who do not convert.” 

Giovanni Amendola

In pursuit of this totalitarian religious transformation, various proselytizing methods are used. Two of these are demagogy and pedagogy, the former being the spreading of State propaganda through art, literature, music, plays, and festivals, and the latter being the ideological indoctrination of the youth via compulsory schooling.

The strategy of “terror and love” is another technique used to proselytize the masses into the totalitarian religion. Citizens are subjected to terror via ongoing wars, continual fear mongering, false flags, and the ever-present threat of loss of livelihood, property, imprisonment, or death. Yet these displays of terror are interspersed with displays of love; ceremonial rituals are held to honor the good will of the leaders and continuous propaganda assures the citizens that the regime cares for them and is working hard to keep them safe from the dangers of the world. Alexandra Stein explains in her book Terror, Love and Brainwashing:

“As in the Stockholm Syndrome, thus does the abuser become the perceived safe haven – a person or an entity to whom one can turn for help, mercy, forgiveness, comfort.”

Alexandra Stein, Terror, Love and Brainwashing

This alternation of terror and love triggers free floating anxiety, confusion and creates a trauma bond between the citizen and the State, a bond that lies at the basis of all cults. Stein explains further:

“…the alternation of love and fear within an isolating environment [results] in a dissociated, loyal and deployable follower who can now be instructed to act in the interests of the leader rather than in his or her own survival interests… Processes of brainwashing rest on the creation of stress or threat with no escape other than [compliance] to the apparent safe haven of the [totalitarian regime and] group.”

Alexandra Stein, Terror, Love and Brainwashing

Persistent fear mongering in conjunction with promises that compliance to the regime will bring the citizens salvation creates true believers who will do whatever the regime commands, even if these commands require them to disown friends and family, face economic ruin, spend time in prison or even go to an early grave. As one example, Nikolai Vilenchik, a man loyal to the Soviet regime, was forced to spend 17 years in the hard labor gulags for a crime he did not commit. Yet upon being released he did not condemn the Stalinist regime, instead he stated: 

“We believed in the Party – and we were not mistaken!”

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago

Other reports tell of political officials and party followers who cried out “Long Live Stalin!” as they were being taken out to be shot by the Soviet Secret Police. As further evidence for the mass religious conversion that takes place under totalitarianism, Hannah Arendt explained:

“…the amazing fact is that…[the totalitarian true believer] is…[unlikely] to waver [in his loyalty] when the monster begins to devour its own children and not even if he becomes a victim of persecution himself, if he is framed and condemned, if he is purged from the party and sent to a forced-labor or a concentration camp. On the contrary, to the wonder of the whole civilized world, he may even be willing to help in his own prosecution and frame his own death sentence if only his status as a member of the movement is not touched.”

Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism

Totalitarianism is a religion that never achieves what it promises. It creates a hell on earth in which many are sacrificed to the god of the state, but none are delivered into the brave new world they were promised. The more power the state is granted, the more corrupt become the individuals who operate the state machinery and the more the world descends into chaos. Totalitarianism must be avoided at all costs, but sadly this religion is seeing a modern-day revival. Politicians and others in positions of global power are vocal about their desire to re-make, re-build or re-set the world and the masses are expected to obey and to love the new society that is being forced upon them. If obedience does not come voluntarily, then force is being used with an alarming frequency.

“They want to be our shepherds. But that requires us to be sheep.”

Thomas Sowell, The Vision of the Anointed

In these times of tyranny we each face of choice: accept the false gods of the state and allow the totalitarians to lead us into what Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn calls the “land of smothered opportunities”, or resist.

“There is but one choice: to rise to the task of the age.”

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Warning to the West

In the mid 20th century Carl Jung watched the religion of totalitarianism sweep across Europe, and his words serve as a call to action for all who see the perils we face:

“Where are the superior minds, capable of reflection, today? If they exist at all, nobody heeds them: instead there is a general running amok, a universal fatality against whose compelling sway the individual is powerless to defend himself. And yet this collective phenomenon is the fault of the individual as well, for nations are made up of individuals. Therefore the individual must consider by what means he can counter the evil.” 

Carl Jung, Civilization in Transition

What are some tactics we can use to counter this evil? We can stop allowing our children to be indoctrinated with totalitarian ideas. We can ostracize people who blindly obey the immoral commands of the state – for ostracism is one of the most powerful means of social influence. We can mock and ridicule the so-called “priestly” class of politicians and bureaucrats and point out their hypocrisy and the absurdity of their propaganda and lies. We can create and support technology, art, memes, videos, books, merchandise or music that informs, inspires, and spreads the message of freedom. Or we can help build and participate in the “counter economy”, which consists of all voluntary exchange that is conducted outside the controlling eyes of the totalitarian State. Simply put, we can strive to live as freely as possible in the recognition that while we singlehandedly cannot liberate the world, our own personal liberation creates ripples in society and serves as a powerful example for others.

In making the choice of whether to help resist the rise of the totalitarian religion we should recognize that the choice is not between complying and living an easy life versus resisting and inviting unnecessary hardship. For compliance to totalitarianism is the riskiest of choices as it is based on the naïve hope that this time will be different, that this time power won’t corrupt politicians and state officials, that this time the totalitarian monster will not devour its children and create a man-made hell on earth. But as Solzhenitsyn warned:

“There always is this fallacious belief: “It would not be the same here; here such things are impossible.” Alas, all the evil of the twentieth century is possible everywhere on earth.” (Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago)

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago

If there was just one video I could strongly recommend that you guys watch in regard to the state of the world right now, it would be the podcast between Joe Rogan & mRNA scientist, Dr Robert Malone (Virologist). I would be very interested in the critical thinking minds giving it a close analysis, in an open minded fashion. 

Where is the upside in saying such things? Do they have merit? 

At the very least, you'll have a balanced idea of what the opposing side of an argument is.

Long tune. Absence of public debate and censoring are two issues that make me uncomfortable with the prevailing official view. I’m deeply troubled by the Omicron coverage too.

Hi Paul, 

I don't know about the USA but, in the UK it seems increasingly people are waking up and understanding that we are on a very bad trajectory. This "Trusted News Initiative" is controlling the flow of information to the public. Some of my American friends don't even know Europe is awash with enormous protests against this, not against jabs, against mandates and against V passports. 

I don't know if you've read Robert F. Kennedy Jr's book, "The real Anthony Fauci" but, it's haunting. 2200 citations. As horrific as this sounds, people in my community are preparing for supply chain collapses, energy outages, food shortages, and financial collapse. I am speaking to people in Norway, Switzerland and all sorts of people that are doing the same. That's all worst case scenario but, considering governments are simulating some of the above, like cyber attacks and food shortages, I'd say it's probable. The World Economic Forum is openly planning our future, its overt, so open. Who elected and funded them to do this? 

One of the problems in society, aside from the media grip of propaganda and mass psychosis, is the fact WW2 was roughly a human lifetime ago, nobody can envisage things ever being bad again. Yet, the whole of human history was almost exclusively in the grip of tyrants. It's human nature. Nobody thinks things can be bad again. IMHO we are in the last years of capitalism, corruption is rife, oligarchs are cannibalising state institutions. 😞 

Good on everybody who is speaking up. Ripples of hope...

I have rfk Jr’s book and have read the intro. I’m worried about food chain etc too. We keep getting hints and paying little attention. In my deeper conspiracy minded moments I suspect population control. The cure is worse than the disease with Covid, especially now with Omicron. I agree with the mayors of NYC and Chicago who want the schools open and teachers to come to work. One thing my liberal friends never ask is who bears the brunt? They think it’s nurses and teachers. Well, yeah. But writ large it’s the poor, the working class in service industries. How anyone cannot see supply chain issues in food coming is beyond me. The next shoe to drop may be Covid in the meat supply.

Right now, I’d be more than happy if this was just the biggest financial racket of our time to fleece the tax payer and line the pockets of the Pharma giants.
 

Unfortunately, it looks increasingly like there is a lot more to it. I’ll write a longer piece soon, or a series of pieces. If it looks and smells like something, it usually is. 😞 

 

How people familiar with the history of the twentieth century are not seeing the parallels here, is amazing, it can only be explained by their psychological state, fear and waves of propaganda.  
 

Imagine thinking sidestepping the Nuremberg Code is a good idea. Deciding children can consent to this, over their parents.  

The UK parliament is having laws put through quietly that can remove us from our homes. Democracy and western civilisation is a flickering light right now. Everything is pushing us into this authoritarian situation, ushering us closer to Technocracy (scientific dictatorship). Just as Huxley predicted, people would be too distracted by a sea of irrelevance and consumed by pleasures to notice.

Chris - what were you referring to regarding the Nuremberg Code?

RFK Jr has been ‘cancelled’, he’s anti vaccine, so anything else he stands for, everything he has done, suddenly gone. And everywhere, even on this website his warnings are completely ignored. Meanwhile, Fauci is everyone’s favorite grandpa, though to me he is a hack. When in our lifetime has one individual garnered so much public trust? That’s Orwellian.

No country has the right to experiment on its citizens, or mandate medical procedures. These experimental treatments are only on emergency permissions until at least 2023 sometime. Certain European countries like Austria are mandating them. Fining people for not having them. Step by step, incrementally they are making it more difficult or impossible for people to live without them. The coercion is a disgrace. In the UK we are prioritising boosters over people who potentially need cancer diagnosing, because they are financially incentivised to do so. It’s a madness in thinking. 
 

This is how they are doing it:

(short clip).

I have just read the Christopher R. Browning book “Ordinary Men.” It’s very clear.
 

Regarding RFK Jr, they’ll find any reason to cancel him, or any other who doesn’t suit their narrative. Anybody who becomes too much of a voice will be deplatformed. Encouragingly it was the #1 best seller on all books on Amazon for days. A lot of people have it. It’s sold out in the UK.
 

The staggering thing here is, even on the forum is; people are seeing massive inflation, a devaluing of currency, their livelihoods being ruined, their quality of lives drop, they are struggling, and yet they are beating the drum in support for the state measures destroying the economy, even as the new variant is much weaker than before. It’s like they don’t even know that some of the common colds we have are Coronaviruses. They are the proverbial frogs happily boiling in a saucepan, oblivious to the world around them. 
 

Here is another harrowing thought with the UnV’d. We are 7 steps into a 10 step process that led to the Jewish holocaust. The dehunanisation ramps up daily, with world leaders and media, shaping public opinion. It’s unbelievable that people are buying that unV’d are keeping the pandemic going, there is zero evidence to suggest that. Countries with 100# V uptakes are suffering the worst. In the UK we have 1/5th or 1/6th of the NHS staff who wont take the jab. What is it that they are seeing in hospitals that is making them apprehensive?  We are claiming the unV’d are taking up valuable beds, how will the industry look with 200k staff fired in March for not taking the jabs. These are the people the public clapped as heroes, the frontline workers. The trusted media alliance blocks all of this negative talk. 
 

Unless people wake up, we’re in for a very very bad time, I’ll say it again; nothing says “trust the science” like hiding it from the public for between 55 and 75 years.
