The Ultimate Divide and Conquer

Russ Bangs

It has frequently been observed that terror can rule absolutely only over people who are isolated against each other and that therefore one of the primary concerns of tyrannical government is to bring this isolation about. Isolation may be the beginning of terror; it certainly is its most fertile ground; it always is its result. This isolation is, as it were, pretotalitarian; its hallmark is impotence insofar as power always comes from people acting together, acting in concert; isolated people are powerless by definition.”
Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism

Western civilization, led by the US government and media, has embarked upon a campaign of mass psychological terrorism designed to cover for the collapsing economy, set up a new pretext for Wall Street’s ongoing plunder expedition, radically escalate the police state, deeply traumatize people into submission to total social conformity, and radically aggravate the anti-social, anti-human atomization of the people.

The pretext for this abomination is an epidemic which objectively is comparable to the seasonal flu and is caused by the same kind of Coronavirus we’ve endured so long without totalitarian rampages and mass insanity.

The global evidence is converging on the facts: This flu is somewhat more contagious than the norm and is especially dangerous for those who are aged and already in poor health from pre-existing maladies. It is not especially dangerous for the rest of the population.

The whole concept of “lockdowns” is exactly upside down, exactly the wrong way any sane society would respond to this circumstance.

It’s the vulnerable who should be shielded while nature takes its course among the general population, who should go about life as usual. Dominionist-technocratic rigidity can’t prevent an epidemic from cycling through the population in spite of the delusions of that religion, especially since Western societies began their measures far too late anyway.

So it’s best to let herd immunity develop as fast as it naturally will, at which time the virus recedes from lack of hosts (and is likely to mutate in a milder direction along the way). This is the only way to bring a safer environment for all including the most vulnerable.

The fact that most societies have rejected the sane, scientific route in favor of doomed-to-fail attempts at a forcible violent segregation and sterilization is proof that governments aren’t concerned with the public health (as if we didn’t know that already from a thousand policies of poisoning the environment while gutting the health care system), but are very ardent to use this crisis they artificially generated in order radically to escalate their police state power toward totalitarian goals.

The whole concept of self-isolation and anti-social “distancing” is radically anti-human. We evolved over millions of years to be social creatures living in tight-knit groups. Although modern societies ideologically and socioeconomically work to massify and atomize people, nevertheless almost all of us still seek close human companionship in our lives.

(I suspect most of the internet police-state-mongers are not only fascists at heart but are confirmed misanthropic loners who couldn’t care less about human closeness.)

This terror campaign seeks to blast to pieces any remaining human closeness, which means any remaining humanity as such, the better to isolate individual atoms for subjection to total domination. Arendt wrote profoundly on this goal of totalitarian governments, though even she didn’t envision a state-driven cult of the literal physical repulsion of every atom from every other atom.

So far the people are submitting completely to a terror campaign dedicated to the total eradication of whatever community was left in the world, and especially whatever community was starting to be rebuilt.

Some dream of this terror campaign somehow bringing about a magical collective transformation. They don’t explain how that is supposed to happen when everyone’s so terrorized they’re desperate to detach physically from their own shadows, let alone physically come together with other people. But any kind of political or social action, any kind of movement-building, requires close person-to-person contact.

It seems that for most erstwhile self-alleged dissidents, the fact that social media is no substitute for face-to-face organizing and group action, a fact hitherto universally acknowledged by these dissidents, is another truth suddenly to be jettisoned replaced by its complete antithesis.

Thus the terror campaign is a virus causing those it infects to abdicate all activism and all prospect for all future activism, for as long as they remain insane with the fever of this propaganda terror.

Far more profoundly and evoking despair, the terror campaign is a virus causing those it infects to fear and loathe all human contact, all companionship, all closeness, all things which ever made us human in the first place. Prior totalitarian regimes sought this lack of contact and trust through networks of informers.

These networks are part of today’s terror campaign as well, encouraged from above and spontaneously arising from below as a result of the feeling of terror as well as the exercise of prior petty-evil intentions on the part of petty-evil individuals.

But today’s totalitarian potential is far worse than this. Now the regimes aspiring to total domination have terrorized and brainwashed the vast majority of people into an automatic physical distrust of all other people. One no longer fears that someone is an informer, but fears the very existence of another human being.

Any kind of human relations, from personal friendship and romance to friendly social gatherings and clubs to social and cultural movements become impossible under such circumstances. This threatens to be the end of the very concept of shared humanity, to be replaced by an anthill of slave atoms with no consciousness beyond fear and the most animal concern for food and shelter, which already is allowed or denied in the same way experimenters do with lab rats.

And the more people fear and loathe the literal physical existence of all other people, the more the situation becomes ripe for every epidemic of murder, from the spiking rate of domestic violence and killings to incipient lynch mobs to pogroms to Nazi-style extermination campaigns.

This is the system’s end goal. It’s the logical end where every trend of today leads. All of it is trumped up over an epidemic which objectively is a flu season somewhat rougher than average.

Why do the people want to surrender and throw away all reality and future prospect of shared humanity, happiness, freedom, well-being, over so little? Is this really a terminal totalitarian death cult, the globe as one massive Jonestown?

So far it seems this is what the majority wants. If they don’t really want this consummation of universal death in spirit, emotion and body, they’d better snap out of their terror-induced mental delirium fast, before it’s too late.

What virus? Who’s seen it? The aged are ill from being old. From the very beginning the hospitals have been nearly empty. We have video proof of ‘ground zero’ hospitals inside and out nearly completely empty.

Would some blogger/news aggregator please report on the fact that on many news sites “comment” sections have been shut down (Yahoo News for example) or access to them has been made cumbersome and discouraging. Isn’t this yet another method for isolating the individual who has something to say or share? Another step along the path to totalitarianism?

Lockdown is just another euphemism for euthanisms.

Theresa of Calcutta saId when visiting the USA that she had seen areas of terrible poverty all over the world but that she had never seen such poverty of loneliness and isolation as there exists in USAmerica.

Big Clue in the Big Plan of Big Brother. (Since in hindsight it appears blatantly planned that way, for generations too.)

And she spoke to it ages before Lockdowns, and all the latest state-terrorist socially distant jargon du jour.

Germaine Greer said that the only place she ever saw Teresa in person (I assume it’s the same person as Theresa) was in the first class lounges of international airports. Would probably explain why she couldn’t afford autoclaves to sterilize contaminated equipment that was routinely only rinsed, if that, between terminal patients. She’d have loved the mask debate.

Yes, it’s your spell of ‘Teresa’. I have known an Irish nun for decades, and Sr. Theresa Doherty has me conflating her spelling too. Mother Teresa gets a lot of bad press from the Left. I had a brief exchange with Jerry Brown about her 32 years ago, he’d just come back from a stint volunteering at her Calcutta mother house. “Now there’s a lady who sure has her act together” were his exact words. That was his lean stretch between governor stints. He was impressed by her. I know Michael Parenti took her to task in his great essay “The Nobel Peace Prize for War.” And just obliterated the Dalai Lama, to boot.

In any case, whatever her foibles, my quote of her about our isolation really wasn’t about her, but about ger take on ourcomparative states of isolation, and it serves that point well enough. I think over here she hobnobbed with a lot of the rich, on behalf of funding the charity. If anything, her visits to our lounges and beyond in that respect would have given her even more occasion to see our culture of solitary death and abandoned isolation. I was researching elder abuse for my mom in her last years and was rather shocked to find elder financial abuse had increased 100 –TIMES– in recent years, here.

I assume that you are referring to Mr. Hitchen’s comment (in the linked video) on the donation money not belonging to Mr. Keating. I agree completely, but the thing to focus on is the equity-title or use-title and not the legal-title. Anything of any substantial value – it used to be almost anything with a serial number – has both a legal-title and an equity / use-title. Most critically it also applies to nominal financial instruments. A Napoleonic perpetual bond, for example, is still valid as a financial instrument, but virtually anyone who has one treats it as a thing or chattel, because it has vastly more value as a collectors’ item than for the few francs of annual interest on it. Whether a given writing is a financial-instrument or a chattel is entirely at the pure choice of its lawful owner at any given time. The critical thing is… Read more »

Broadly agree with the sentiments, other than this “flu being somewhat more contagious than the norm.” It’s supposedly been with us since autumn and upper respiratory tract infections usually peak from December to February, yet deaths were below the five year average until lockdown in late March. The deaths peaked in April, suggesting the lockdown was the killer and, given that it has never been isolated, the SARS cov2 virus is a complete fiction.

Any deadly infectious disease will have the effect of making people want to isolate from each other.

If you are arguing that the coronavirus is actually no different than the flu, then how can you explain overwhelmed hospitals in China and Italy at the start of the pandemic, and these days Texas and Florida? The flu never overwhelms hospitals.

Yes. How mentally unstable people must be to ask critical questions of the current state of affairs – as hundreds of millions of people suffer under the guise of disease theater.

I no longer wish to convince people like you of your ignorance, rather I should think that maybe getting euthanized in a shipping container after a false positive would be a fitting end to people who wish to not acknowledge tyranny in its uprising.

World Parole is essentially correct, if a bit too terse; the flu overwhelms many hospitals in many places in any year in which the flu is just a little bit worse than average. Remember that hospitals also have the usual load of other emergency patients: the accidents, the heart attacks and other sudden health events, etc. So it don’t take all that much CoViD, but it ain’t all CoViD. Moreover, regarding Texas, Florida, and the like, the nutball mainstream media is reporting a surge in cases; what they’re NOT reporting is that if you suddenly do a heckuva lot more testing, you’re gonna get a heckuva lot more cases. Duh! That’s called “being economical with the truth”: not telling the WHOLE truth. Otherwise known as being deliberately deceptive, or, what the hell— LYING. Meanwhile, the rate of test-positives remains the same in these places, so?— all that they’re finding is… Read more »

I think most people comply because we have been conditioned since birth to comply, the typical school classroom teacher’s threat of if one person misbehaves all will be punished. These people genuinely believe it, they believe these are temporary measures that will soon be over and life will return to normal (when everyone cooperates with the measures and “this thing” goes away, not understanding that it was fabricated in the first place). They simply cannot see through the technocratic totalitarian truth of the situation because for whatever reason logic doesn’t prevail and they believe at least some of what MSM tells them AND they want to be compliant.

If this ever ends, I’m going to have some fun. I’ll assume that 95% willingly participated in the Lockdown murders: bullied and snitched on the lonely few independent minds; banged their pots and pans in ignorant support of the shutdown of the hospital; and forced vulnerable people to gasp and stumble in masks.

I can’t breathe.

You get to wear a star. I’ll never forget.

And if they deny their collaboration, I’ll demand proof that they’re not “one of them”. That they are capable of independent thought.

I wrote the following on 22 April: I’m actually more optimistic as a consequence of Scamdemic-2020 than I’ve been for a long time. One of the conclusions from Event 201 is that they weren’t yet ready, and this is becoming increasingly clear as the weeks unfold. The virus is no more deadly than a typical flu and most of the world hasn’t really backed the plan (for instance, look at the vast variation in deaths per million population). https://off-guardian.org/2020/04/22/six-feet-apart-in-the-sunshine/#comment-153428 — I think part of the difficulty for the typical person is that even if they realise that the whole thing is a scam, this is not going to lead to a sense of optimism.

So, yes, I think we’re about to get to the tipping point, or the critical mass, when people will at last dare say no to the “sanitary” oppression and the ever more authoritarian, “creative” and invasive “rules” Yes, and to get an idea of what will happen, a good guide is the past. At the start of this year, the world was marked by strong anti-establishment protests in every part of the world. Masses of people, irrespective of how misguided they may have been, couldn’t put up with the ongoing policies any more. They were saying a clear and loud “No” to the powerful. And it is a pattern. The anti-globalization movement before 11. September 2001. were a gathering force that no one public analyst thought it would end in a whimper, as it did. The massive anti-war protests 2002-2003. were followed with … Likewise, the terrorist wave in the… Read more »

Dors, My switch from optimism to pessimism is a direct result, of my actual and planned experience (things I have recently done, and things that I hope to do soon), but more importantly in direct response to the ongoing mass brainwashing. Whilst I don’t watch TV, and I do understand some of the psychological techniques, I am still vulnerable to them, as is almost everyone. This is entirely deliberate by these psychological experts who are directing the propaganda. It is specifically designed to cause trauma and distress. Together with the enforced social isolation, which is then partially removed, and then reinforced and reimposed and we are now told we have to wear masks, which could at any time be enforced for everyone outside their own front door, will have disastrous effects on nearly everyone’s physical and mental health. Whilst I am currently feeling fine and in optimistic mood, and booked… Read more »

You give much credit to the “western intelligence agencies” for the fall of former USSR, and the rest. That’s what these people like to hear and to believe. They’re son vain, … because they think they have so much power and that “the people are so hopeless”. When you see the scenarios these agencies propose on a regular basis for their “ops”, these are more often than not really very dumb. Just look at what they’ve been doing now for years with Syria, Venezuela, Russia-gate, China, etc… With a special mention for “the Skripals affair”… People no longer believe their propaganda. In that, the level of “success” of their propaganda is now comparable to that of former USSR, which not a single Soviet citizen in their right mind would ever have believed: they knew the reality they lived and what the media depicted where two very different things!

Including forces in Kremlin. Also, I agree with you that popular revolts are to be expected. So are new diversions, new distractions. People no longer believe their propaganda.

Oh, and a few more words:

People no longer believe their propaganda.

You mean the establishment don’t belive. But belief of the establishment is just one thing.

Surveys of public opinion, as well as everyday observations show there is a widespread belief among the population – in a seriousness of a fictional pandemic, in other words: belief in the propaganda.

And an absence of belief in wrong things means little without presence of belief in something valuable.

I said : In the eighties in Eastern Europe you simply knew you were safe to speak your mind in private,

I have to add:

and there was much less trust in the propaganda,

and people talked things out for hours face to face rather than send a few messages a day,

and there was a model of a different kind of a society at hand.

That all counts.

Thank you, Dors. I think the more powerful argument you make is that in former communist Eastern Europe “there was a model of a different kind of society at hand”. It is very true the window dressing of Western capitalism was “out there” for all to reach and pluck the fruits. In the people’s imaginary fabricated by the hard-sell promotion of such propaganda outlets like “Voice of America” at least. But don’t forget there were many victims and “excess death” in that “transition” too… More than 3 million “excess death” in Russia alone in the 90s, under Yeltsin and Bill Clinton’s boys!! Never forget that! Then Putin succeeded in bringing back some order in the Russian house and avoided Russia being totally plundered by the western (and internal) vultures. He also succeeded in maintaining Russia strong and independent. But I digress… It is true that people are distressed by all… Read more »

Yes, like today, it was mainly a mafia-style, far-right and state-sponsored terrorism, what took place in Italy, or Germany, in the 70s. The Red Brigades and their equivalent in Germany were manipulated by the state, like the Middle East (so-called, by the usual Israeli Zionist culprits, “Palestinian”) terrorism of the 70s. Proof of it? The entire Italian government (up to all the successive prime ministers!) was working in deep association with the mafia, as was proven later (Giulio Andreotti “Il Divo”, Bettino Craxi etc.) . How much exactly are the CIA, MI6, Mossad, DGSE (French-equivalent of the CIA/MI6) et al responsible for the “anti-Jewish” and “Islamist” (“pro-ISIS/Daesh”) terror acts in Europe (London, Paris, Brussels…) this recent decade?

Meanwhile a UK survey released this week and widely referenced on Twatter found that people have estimated that 7% of the population has died of COVID. That’s a value 100 fold higher than reality.

A dumbed down education system, a deliberately hysterical media and government machine have scared the wits out of people, and they live in fear of ending up in the mythical 7% category.

In other words, these facts seem not to support your theory.

You seem to like “being underwhelmed”… The simple fact to live an enjoyable life (not exactly what “covid new normal” proposes to the world) is a strong enough engine to move the people… Even in what you descibe “a mental, cultural desert”.
It may even be the engine of change! Have you noticed that in the Latin American countries which are taken over by a left-wing (real left-wing, not what the US call “left”: the Democrat plutocrats) government (the “centrist” media usually call them “regimes”), suddenly the level of alphabetization and education soars? Along with a spectacular decrease in poverty… Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia etc.
True, that is a sure thing that the Neo-Liberal globalists are not exactly for educating the people so they can think for themselves.

Find some vague criteria for what constitutes the symptoms you want people to look for. Anything subjective that a lot of people can identify with is ideal. Let us take memory problems and/or confusion + a few common ones from the Covid list. Tiredness, aches nd pains are common and subjective enough. (For covid 19 the symptoms are: fever dry cough tiredness Less common symptoms: aches and pains sore throat diarrhoea conjunctivitis headache loss of taste or smell a rash on skin, or discolouration of fingers or toes) It wold be a good idea to take something that was very common in old people so that we can use death from old age as proof of the lethality of the new virus. 2.

While I have absolute respect doesn’t mean my interpretation of the evidence is always correct – it definitely isn’t – but I always judge by what I perceive to be the evidence and I can tell that other people simply do not – it’s not a matter of them misinterpreting it, they simply judge more by their beliefs, their sense of incredulity or whatever – not strictly by the evidence even as they perceive the evidence.

A lot of flowery words, Binra, but no rigour of thought underneath them. I am being invited to engage with a programmed script – which is not a thinker but a claim to righteousness that allows no debate – or only minor details. You set your stall out – or someone set you out – and you do your business. That is your business. I use scientific method in my argument and invite others to do the same. They may eschew it and use other argument and if I don’t like it I’ll argue with it. Isn’t that perfectly normal? … or someone set you out … What prompts you to think that? Pls tell me. What do you see as the function of the perpetration of ‘fakery’? I do not know. That’s not my department. I just look for how the psyop is run. Essentially I’d say it’s about… Read more »

Ok – thanks for the response. Where exactly does the deceit run? I hold that Consciousness is the law of its own nature – which works along the lines of as you sow so shall you reap what you give out is what you get back Garbage in; garbage out or it takes one to know one. The psyop is set up so as to split the mind such that what we ‘think’ we give, masks what we actually give, and what we ‘think’ we receive, filters distorts and blocks the truth. Or substitutes for the truth. For ‘think’ you can substitute belief. Masking belief operates against disclosure to loss of face, loss of control and loss of self.

You have not been following the story since its inception here at off-Guardian, where there are hundreds of discussions and links galore that show us that no coronavirus has been isolated and that PCR tests are seriously flawed and not fit for purpose.

Indeed death statistics have been rigged: altogether the C narrative is well worth the read.

Go back to January and follow the story.

Rachel, The propagandists targeting the truthers want all the focus on the buildings because the planes more easily lead to the pivotal truth of 9/11: staged death and injury. If the planes were faked then automatically we know the 265 alleged to have died in them didn’t die and we might ask, well, if they faked the deaths of those 265 then what about all those other alleged deaths? Could they have faked those? Also, when you work out the planes are faked then you don’t need to spend a second on the buildings because obviously if they were faked then the buildings had to have come down by a controlled means. And the propagandists don’t want that kind of stuff happening. They want as much discussion about this that and the other going on all the time making everything seem very, very complex when it’s actually very very simple:… Read more »

they certainly did seem to give hints like they wanted us to know it was a psy op. i suppose too add to the to the trauma. building 7 is like a reveal. see no plane and we knew in advance. suppose it woke some up. demolition of their reality. it was a huge spectacle but not worthy of the response. no planes means no terrorists. people financed whole wars which was the real disaster based on little more evidence than some doctored footage. if you look at stefan lankas work then he explains how people were amazed by kochs microscope images. they are told they are looking at the terrorist when really they are being recruited.

How they tell us the truth I find fascinating, Rachel. There’s kind of two ways they do it but they sort of overlap. 1. Revelation of the method – they justify their hoaxing of us because they tell us with obvious anomalies and by actually telling the truth and this also probably allows them to justify it to those they involve such as agency staff – they say to them, “Well, we’re giving it away, so don’t feel bad.” 2. A propaganda technique such as diversion – focusing truthers on controlled demolition is a way of diverting them from the pivotal truth of staged death and injury. So let’s take a look at all the reporters on the day alluding to controlled demolition 1. It’s revelation of the method – they tell us controlled demolition 2. But it’s also a kind of propaganda technique. When people start to wake up… Read more »

And just to add, they have no fear of scripting them to say controlled demolition and having that truth compromise the majority belief in the 19-terrorists story because those who believe the mainstream story will simply find a way to wave that anomaly away or simply won’t look at it even if you shove it under their noses. The perps know that we are all kind of siloed according to our inclinations to believe one way or another so even though they’re pushing out controlled demolition to the absolute MAX in a certain arena it’s only truther-inclined people who will respond. The way in which people fall into groups and respond to information cannot be underestimated.

“The whole concept of self-isolation and anti-social “distancing” is radically anti-human.”

I hope the author is not arguing that the concept of social distancing, the limitations to social intercourse which a minority of people apply, which can be quite severe relative to that of common man, is not ‘radically anti-human’ in itself, but that the problem lies in top down imposition of such a situation. Self styled forms of social distancing prevail among a minority, as such distancing gives space for the necessary development of individuality.

It’s not really a minority, it’s cultural. And there are other self-regulating mechanisms, just not 6 feet away – which rule apparently was proposed in a child’s school essay. What is anti-human is isolating the healthy, exactly the opposite of what was traditionally done.
In North America, people usually keep a distance. Go to Egypt, and many other countries, and people you engage with keep creeping closer as you back away because you’re not of that culture.
Then of course, there’s the old friendly admonition: ‘Don’t get close to me, I’ve got a cold’.

As a note on the above. The current situation, it should probably best be seen in terms of panic which leads to policies which finally have to be calibrated. The big controllers, big funders, institutions and corporation, they provide the big push, structurally. The lower institutions, politicians, national governments, local governments, the media and ever lower in the chain, they merely tumble over each other to invent al kinds of policies., which leads to a great amount of absurdities. This storm and mess of policies and absurdities will later on resolve, but structurally the whole thing has to transform society, bringing about a new normal. And that new normal will also imply calibration in terms of seeing that evident absurdities and extremities are removed, that the needs of socialization are met in some way for instance.

Before I go for good, just a little suggestion of how some of the sheeple could be shaken awake – Discuss the new petition to have all pet cats and dogs culled. What petition? The one asking that there be a mass culling of cats and dogs (like they did with cows during BSE) because cats and dogs are “assymptomatic super spredders” of Covid19. The reason they should be culled is because it would be cruel to make them wear masks or to keep them locked down, and they cant be properly anti-social distanced anyway – they just would not comply.

As my earlier comment went into “awaiting approval” about 2hrs 30 mins ago, and hasn’t been looked at yet apparently, I’ll do an alternative version here, hoping it shows up this time. A lot of people seem to be depressed that the public seems submissive and believe the mainstream propaganda about the virus, and so there’s no hope and full blown Orwellian 1984 is on its way. I don’t think that’s a justified position for the following reasons. Firstly, until last Friday, I’d estimate about 2/3 to 3/4 of the public weren’t wearing masks anywhere, except public transport, even though they knew the government advice was to wear them any place it was hard to social distance like in shops, so that doesn’t sound like submissiveness to me.

explanations and justifications, which as we who have looked a little
deeper know, do not actually exist.

Carey, not clear on your last sentence. Which notion? That people are just submitting and going along? Or that those who don’t wear masks should be fined?

By the time the public sees the harm, it will most likely be too late to change anything, control will have been solidified. Kind of like the Twilight Zone classic episode, “To Serve Man,” in which ETs arrive in their ships, seem totally cool, benevolent, offer a book, whose cover title is “To Serve Man.” People get on the ships for a free cruise (by which point the ETs are in control of everything), a prominent scientist who’s been a main communicator with them is one of those people boarding, when his assistant runs over to the site and screams at him “It’s a cook book.” Or the “simmering frogs” parable (it’s a myth, frogs don’t do that).

JS, sorry I wasn’t clear: “obedience” is at an all-time high here, and I’m as disappointed as you are that it’s been so easy to implement.. two or three
months ago, when it became obvious that OMG! COViD-19! was grossly
overblown, I thought I saw signs of independent thinking.. not seeing it

Thanks for clarifying, Carey. Yep, totally agree, “overblown” became quite evident by the latter part of April, but the last month or so there’s been a hard core retrenchment in the official story, and i believe this is totally driven by political considerations, not medical ones. And FWIW i’m actually what would normally be considered at the far left end of the political spectrum (far lower end, as with total decentralization of power as well), but see this as a move by a faction of the ruling elite whose front is the Democrats to regain control over all levels of operations of the state (the state as an institution, not California or other specific US states).

In my part of Canada before masks became mandatory it was the opposite: about 75% were already submitting and perhaps 25% were not.

“many would like to speak out but are too scared too, in fear of their jobs” That is literally cowardice. Unfortunately, it is not “premature” to suggest most people are submissive, and there is little hope for society. Those 2/3 – 3/4 of the public not wearing masks before ARE wearing masks now. They have literally submitted. As soon as freedom is jeopardized or money is threatened, most people submit. There has been anger since before this started. Many pockets of people saw how ridiculous, damaging, and irrational masks and lockdown were back in February/March. Yet more and more of them are submitting, and have been all along. The harm being done to the public won’t turn to anger against the government. It will turn to anger against each other (as it already is). Maskers are already blaming anti-maskers for the prolonged “lockdown”, because “if we all just wore our… Read more »

Having read the article and some of the comments here what strikes me most is the feeling of hopelessness that results from the conclusion stated so often that most of the population is just meekly submitting to what’s going on, and is also not doubting the narrative given out by the government and mainstream media. I don’t think it’s safe to conclude either of those things is the case. For example, firstly, let us take the fact that face masks were made compulsory, first on public transport and then in shops and other confined spaces. The very reason they were made compulsory (I mean given it was desired by the government, regardless of the reasons for them wanting everyone to wear masks) was that most people were refusing to wear them, regardless of the fact almost everybody knew long before it being made mandatory that the government were advising everybody… Read more »

Copy and paste into a simple text editor. Italics gone.

“It has frequently been observed that terror can rule absolutely only over people who are isolated against each other and that therefore one of the primary concerns of tyrannical government is to bring this isolation about. Isolation may be the beginning of terror; it certainly is its most fertile ground; it always is its result. This isolation is, as it were, pretotalitarian; its hallmark is impotence insofar as power always comes from people acting together, acting in concert; isolated people are powerless by definition.”

Many strains of influenza have been isolated. Their shape is identified by H and N numbers eg H1 N1 was the configuration of Pandemic 1918-1919. What is interesting is that particular strain of influenza hit again in 2009 it was named ‘swine flu’ but, it was nowhere near as deadly as H1 N1 configuration of 1918-1919 strain and that is a big why question… evey year the influenza vaccine is based on the H and N configuration most likely to ‘strike’
I love a story and love to pass on a wonder from useless information I have accumulated in my head over time….so story time……Influenza was so named because it was thought to originate from the influence of the planets ! It was from outer space..isn’t that wonderful

There is sound scientific evidence out there try Spanish flu 1918-1919 strain H1 N1- remember numbers mean shape. Koch’s first postulate isolate the pathogen has been achieved by knowing H and N surface protein numbers.

H number 1-16 H= hemagglutin proteins
N number 1-9 = neuramindase proteins

Influenza number mortality and morbidity rates for 18 -19 pandemic.

Morbidity rate 500 million Mortality rate 50 million

It is suggested that such a large number of people died or became ill because of ‘vaccinations’, aspirin over doses and virus mania, etc? whatever etc is, perhaps etc is flu ?

This may interest you to see how the sly medical industry has managed to uphold the spurious notion of a pathogenic virus when in nature a virus is a protein that works hand in glove with the microbiome to repel toxins.

The influenza virusfrom 1918-1919 was isolated. H1 N1 That was the strain of that particular influenza virus.

The H and N numbers denote the shape of a particular influenza virus. The shape is of vital importance when making any vaccine.

H numbers are 1 to 16 These are hemagglutin proteins

N numbers are N1 to 9 these are neuramindase proteins

Simple search will provide evidence…spanish flu 1918-1919 H and N numbers, morbidity and mortality rates

I do not claim, it has been scientifically proven

However, there is no scientific evidence to suggest people died because of aspirin overdose, ‘virus mania’ or vaccinations.

The incredible sophistication and heartless cunning of the long running, infinitely patient plan to enslave us all is unimaginable to most people. You have to be lucky to notice it or just have a certain knack, a lot of morons are more perceptive of this sort of thing.

This is an analysis, posted online on 22 July, given by German Professor of Psychology, specialising in psychological trauma, Franz Ruppert as supporting evidence to the independent German ACU (Coronavirus Investigative Committee). The professor gives a profound and disturbing analysis of how the “coercive measures” have affected, and will continue to affect, those people who are content to accept them uncritically, those people who oppose them and the impact on the development of children and young people. Among other things, he brings in observations about the lack of verifiable detail in what we are told, Stockholm Syndrome and the division of societies into two opposing camps. …people are incited against one another. There is incitement by the press, people are played off against one another.
