The Propaganda War (And How to Fight It)

CJ Hopkins

Every totalitarian system in history has used the power of visual propaganda to generate a new “reality,” one that reifies its official ideology, remaking the world in its own paranoid image.

New Normal totalitarianism is no exception.

For example, take a look at this panel copied from the landing page of The Guardian — one of the global-capitalist ruling classes’ primary propaganda organs — on July 17, 2021…

This isn’t just “biased” or “sensationalist” journalism. It is systematic official propaganda, no different than that disseminated by every other totalitarian system throughout history. Here’s the one from the following day…

Forget about the content of the articles for a moment and just take in the cumulative visual effect. Official propaganda isn’t just information, misinformation, and disinformation. It is actually less about getting us to believe things than it is about creating an official reality, and imposing it on society by force.

When you’re setting out to conjure up a new “reality,” images are extremely powerful tools, just as powerful, if not more powerful, than words.

Here are a few more that you might recall…

Again, the goal of this type of propaganda is not simply to deceive or terrorize the public. That is part of it, of course, but the more important part is forcing people to look at these images, over and over, hour after hour, day after day, at home, at work, on the streets, on television, on the Internet, everywhere.

This is how we create “reality.” We represent our beliefs and values to ourselves, and to each other, with images, words, rituals, and other symbols and social behaviors. Essentially, we conjure our “reality” into being like actors rehearsing and performing a play … the more we all believe it, the more convincing it is.

This is also why mandatory masks have been essential to the roll-out of the New Normal ideology. Forcing the masses to wear medical-looking masks in public was a propaganda masterstoke.

Simply put, if you can force people to dress up like they’re going to work in the infectious disease ward of a hospital every day for 17 months … presto! You’ve got yourself a new “reality” … a new, pathologized-totalitarian “reality,” a paranoid-psychotic, cult-like “reality” in which formerly semi-rational people have been reduced to nonsense-babbling lackeys who are afraid to go outside without permission from “the authorities,” and are injecting their children with experimental “vaccines.”

The sheer power of the visual image of those masks, and being forced to repeat the ritual behavior of putting them on, has been nearly irresistible. Yes, I know that you have been resisting. So have I. But we are the minority. Denying the power of what we are up against might make you feel better, but it will get us nowhere, or, in any event, nowhere good.

The fact is, the vast majority of the public — except for people in Sweden, Florida, and assorted other officially non-existent places — have been robotically performing this theatrical ritual, and harassing those who refuse to do so, and thus collectively simulating an “apocalyptic plague.”

The New Normals — i.e., those still wearing masks outdoors, shrieking over meaningless “cases,” bullying everyone to get “vaccinated,” and collaborating with the segregation of the “Unvaccinated” — are not behaving the way they’re behaving because they are stupid. They are behaving that way because they’re living in a new “reality” that has been created for them over the course of the last 17 months by a massive official propaganda campaign, the most extensive and effective in the history of propaganda.

In other words, to put it bluntly, we are in a propaganda war, and we’re losing. We can’t match the propaganda power of the corporate media and New Normal governments, but that doesn’t mean we can’t fight back. We can, and must, at every opportunity. Recently, readers have been asking me how to do that. So, OK, here are a few simple suggestions.

The vast majority of obedient New Normals are not fanatical totalitarians. They’re scared, and weak, so they are following orders, adjusting their minds to the new official “reality.” Most of them do not perceive themselves as adherents of a totalitarian system or as segregationists, although that is what they are.

They perceive themselves as “responsible” people following sensible “health directives” to “protect” themselves and others from the virus, and its ever-multiplying mutant “variants.” They perceive the “Unvaccinated” as a minority of dangerous, irrational “conspiracy theorist” extremists, who want to kill them and their families.

When we tell them that we simply want our constitutional rights back, and to not be forced into being “vaccinated,” and censored and persecuted for expressing our views, they do not believe us. They think we’re lying. They perceive us as threats, as aggressors, as monsters, as strangers among them, who need to be dealt with … which is exactly how the authorities want them to perceive us.

We need to try to change this perception, not by complying or being “polite” to them. On the contrary, we need to become more confrontational. No, not violent. Confrontational. There is actually a difference, though the “woke” will deny it.

To begin with, we need to call things what they are. The “vaccination pass” system is a segregation system. It is segregationism. Call it what it is. Those cooperating with it are segregationists. They’re not “helping” or “protecting” anybody from anything. They are segregationists, pure and simple. Refer to them as “segregationists.” Don’t let them hide behind their terminology. Confront them with the fact of what they are.

Same goes for the rest of CovidSpeak. Covid “cases,” “deaths,” and “vaccines” get scare quotes. Healthy people are not medical cases. If Covid didn’t kill someone, they are not a Covid death, period. “Vaccines” that do not behave like vaccines, and that are killing and crippling tens of thousands of people, and that have not been adequately tested for safety, and that are being indiscriminately forced on everyone, do not get to be called vaccines.

OK, here comes the big idea, which will only work if enough people do it. You probably won’t like it, but what the hell, here goes…

This is the red inverted triangle the Nazis used in the concentration camps to designate their political opponents and members of the anti-Nazi resistance. Make one. Make it out of fabric, paper, or whatever material you have at hand.

Put a big, black “U” in the center of it to signify “Unvaccinated.” Wear it in public, conspicuously.

When people ask you what it means and why you are wearing it in public, tell them. Encourage them to do the same, assuming they’re not New Normal segregationists, in which case … well, that will be a different conversation, but go ahead and tell them too.

That’s it. That’s the whole big idea. That, and whatever else you are already doing.

The triangle is not meant to replace that. It’s just one simple way for people to express their opposition to the totalitarian, pseudo-medical segregation system that is currently being implemented … despite all that other stuff you’ve been doing, and that I have been doing, for 17 months.

All right, I can already feel your disappointment. You thought I was going to propose a frontal assault on Klaus Schwab’s secret castle, or a guerilla naval attack on Bill Gates’ yacht. Cathartic as either of those endeavors might be, they would be (a) futile, and (b) suicidal.

Frustrating as it has been for all of us, this is still a battle for hearts and minds. Essentially, it is a War on Reality (or between two “realities” if you prefer). It is being fought in people’s heads, not in the streets.

So, let me try to sell you on this red triangle thing.

The point of a visual protest like this is to force the New Normals to confront a different representation of what they, and we, are. A representation that accurately reflects reality.

No, of course we are not in concentration camps — so, please, spare me the irate literalist emails — but we are being segregated, scapegoated, censored, humiliated, and otherwise abused, not for any legitimate public health reasons, but because of our political dissent, because we refuse to mindlessly follow orders and conform to their new official ideology.

The New Normals need to be forced to perceive their beliefs and actions in that context, even if only for a few fleeting moments at the mall, or in the grocery store, or wherever.

Think of it this way … as I explained above, they are basically performing a theatrical event, conjuring up a “pandemic reality” with words, actions, and pseudo-medical stage props. What we need to become is that asshole in the audience who destroys the suspension of disbelief and reminds everyone that they’re sitting in a theater, and not in 15th Century Denmark, by loudly taking a call on his phone right in the middle of Hamlet’s soliloquy.

Seriously, we need to become that asshole as conspicuously as possible, as often as possible, to disrupt the show the New Normals are performing … and to remind them what they are actually doingand who they are actually doing it to.

Look at the white people in the tweet above tormenting that girl who is just trying to go to school like any other student. The New Normals do not want to perceive themselves that way, as a pack of fanatical, hate-drunk segregationists, but that is what they are, because it is what they are doing…but it is not what most of them are by nature.

Yes, some people are congenitally sociopathic, but no one is inherently totalitarian. We are not born fascists or segregationists. We have to be programmed to be that way. That’s what the propaganda is for, not to mention all the other authoritarian conditioning we are subjected to from the time we are children.

Or that’s the gamble, or the leap of faith, behind the inverted red triangle thing. It is a basic non-violent civil-disobedience tactic, which works on people who still have a conscience and haven’t gone full totalitarian yet.

Granted, it might not work this time — we are already at the stage where they are going to imprison restaurant owners for serving the “Unvaccinated” — but it might, and what have we got to lose?

I got news for you. The ONLY way to successfully have one iota of a chance in addressing totalitarianism tyranny on this level is to violently eradicate it from the planet primarily by guerilla warfare tactics by at least 3-5% of the determined few of the population. For as long as totalitarianism remains it will grow and get more and more oppressive–it is not/never static. Anybody ‘thinking’ that there is any other way to address this oppression is pipe-dreaming.

The author of this has a fairly good idea about reality. But…. is it TRULY a “war on life” AND the fact that evil people rule is only ONE part of the equation. The true but “culturally and politically forbidden” reality is more encompassing. Read “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon”” by Rolf Hefti at www dot CovidTruthBeKnown dot com

Without a proper understanding, and full acknowledgment, of the true problem, no real constructive change is possible.

Totalitarian tyranny increases and becomes more and more oppressive as time marches on. We are seeing a period where it is in a period of geometric increase in oppression. No amount of non-violent actions or inactions will phase this oppressive phenomena, the main reason being that these anti-humanity agendas are planned objectives. That means there is intentional evil at the heart of the controllers actions against humanity. History has proven many times that a determined few, as few as 3-5% of the population, can and has defeated/eradicated the most powerful enemy, even in modern times. If the guidelines of censorship on this website censor the ONLY means to throw off the chains of slavery, and afford humanity the only option/chance to live in freedom with dignity, then everything this website says it stands for is malarky!

As I already commented, a yellow star with the word „unvaccinated” is a better option. This was already used as of May in Germany, at covid sceptics protests: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-57020697
I am wondering why, after people from Germany already used the powerfull yellow star symbol (enough to catch the attention of BBC), the honourable C.J.Hopkins is proposing the usage of the vitually unknown symbol of red inverted triangle?

All this stuff is too complicated for me. The simplest way for me to stay “on the right track” is to remember, always, that you can’t catch covid if you SIT DOWN. The only proviso is that you sit down TWO METRES away from everyone else, That way, you DEFINITELY can’t catch Covid. The government says so.

Ignore the waiters, wafting by half an inch away, creating new airflows, etc. because THEY’RE WEARING MASKS (that can’t protect you from pollen, much less viruses DAMHIKIJK).

JUST…. …. SIT …. DOWN.

You’ll be fine.

History of Image Propaganda with the « Iconoclasts »
There are naïve people who believe that history is the correct account of the facts of the past. They seem to ignore that the world has long been ruled by lies and that the disorder of today’s society is the result.
It was through the eyes, through trophies and emblems that the idea of ​​male glory was brought into people’s minds, that patriotism was ennobled, that glorification of the reign of man and of his conquests. « It is always in times of decadence, says M. Grillot de Givry (Christ and the Fatherland), that this hypertrophy of patriotic sentiment manifests itself, when peoples no longer believe in their gods, in their mysteries, in their prophecies; when they lost the sense of ancestral legends; when they laugh at the sky and the voice of the initiates is lost in the noise of negations. »
At the beginning, it is by the image that man glorifies his idols, that he glorifies himself. For many, the thought does not count, the image is everything.
The ancient polytheistic iconography had given rise to Greek art, which had prevailed since the earliest times. Man and Woman were represented in all their beauty.
When Catholicism triumphed, it brought a masculinist ideal that no longer tolerated feminine beauty. The icons will only represent Man.
All this could create a new art, an ideal of physical and moral ugliness, which will fill the Middle Ages: ugly saints, expression of a religious lie, will replace the old cults in which there was beauty and Truth. .
It begins in the 5th century.
The fanatics of masculinism will destroy ancient art, to suppress the image of women. They will tear apart the works of Phidias and Praxiteles, who were wrong to represent the Venerated Goddesses.
Statues of men were also destroyed. The equestrian Marc-Aurèle of the Place du Capitole was saved by mistake, he was taken for a Constantine.
These men were therefore ignorant, even of their time, vulgar imbeciles, animated by a brutal masculinism, incapable of understanding anything in artistic or moral beauty.
The infamous act of a vandal not only affects the author of the masterpiece, but all subsequent generations who will be deprived of a historical teaching by the destruction of a testimony of the admiration of a era. Crime of Truth, crime against the Spirit, for which there is no forgiveness according to the feminist Gospels.

This is a great idea. The wearing of a signifier, that is. There’s already an uptick of people who are wearing small red hearts on their apparel, on their hat or their sleeve. Promotes and connotes a signal of unity without any negative baggage.
this will become useful and welcome in the nearish future.

My idea is that us Uns request very nicely some special accommodation like certain days to attend cinema or certain concert just foe us. We could ask for separate buses so we could live our lives just like our superiors who got a vax. We will wear our U prominently displayed somewhere. I think we should demand separate but equal segregation. I would be more than happy to be segregated. Of course it won’t actually be equal. We will all know that we are actually superior due to not bearing the internal mark and for not suffering the mental and physihat will get rid of this is for us to willingly accept segregation. What the perps don’t want is segregation that is supposed to be our punishment. If there is a huge segregated group of Uns then it will become very obvious very quickly what has been done to the Vees. That is starting to happen already and the perps fear it more than anything because it destroys the massive lies. The crimes will become very evident when you have a very healthy and visible control group. For this reason of course we know that this can never happen.
We must be marginalized, but without being too inconspicuous. We will be made out to be violent extremists and racists even though we are well represented in minorities. So I am in agreement with what CJ is saying but let’s take it further. Let’s not just point out the segregation but actively request it. Let’s push for reservations and autonomous zones, separate services, churches, schools, and hospitals. Instead of crying over our kids bot being allowed in university let’s start our own. Let’s request that our tax dollars collected go toward our needs. If enough people showed that they are absolutely ready, willing, and able to divorce themselves from society then the push to install a v-pass system dies.
If all I ever have to suffer is not seeing tedious tools like Bruce Springsteen and the Foo Fighters then I will wear my triangle U proudly. I am actually happy to see the woke fools trying to entice me with concerts for vaccinated only. I want to see more of that. Please bring it on. If muslims can have separate areas in our cities then why not us? Our embracing of our segregation is what will make it go away.

We should start spelling vaccine and vaccination “vaxxine” and “vaxxinaation,” two x’s. Following James Howard Kunstler, we should refer to Joe Biden as “Joe Biden” and Kamala as “Kamala.” Why are those white folks yelling at the black girl in the pic? Because she’s unvaxxinated.

Like it or not, most of us don’t have the luxury of being ostracized for resisting the New Reality even if we’re too insignificant for the authorities to bother with. At best, if, like Winston and Julia, we spot one another in the crowd, we can quietly look out for each other and form networks of mutual support that help each other through the dark time. What Orwell didn’t foresee was that the proles would be wearing masks. On the other hand, most proles didn’t have faces.

I am completely in support of this idea, I’ve lived with multiple sclerosis since 90, diagnosed in 91, result of my “classified experimental anthrax vaccine” we all were required to have, going to the Gulf in 89-to at least mid-90’s, I believe through the wars. I’ve had three shot therapies, “gene editing”, five years each, before anaphylaxis ended their efficacy. I’m going on 14 years of “Tysabre, mono-clonal anti-bodies” infused every month for 13 years, every six weeks now, last one, number 157. 28 years of experimental gene therapy treatment, and the hospital pushes me to get the shot, my neurologist stated “mono-clonal anti-bodies” aren’t “gene therapy”, so I asked what was the difference between “gene therapy and gene editing”, which of course, has no answer. He continues to insist “I am at no particular risk”. I have read perhaps a thousand pages of “warnings, possible reactions, risks, unknowns” all the required notifications taking experimental “medical therapy” in “emergency use authorization” over the years, have always known “I am at risk for PML” each and every moment of every day, since the beginning, they have no idea how it comes about, why it happens, and why it happens to a few, but not most”. I am not allowed to know the trends among those being “infused”, it’s private, “Corporate data”, my doctor signed a contract, he can’t tell me what’s happened with all the other patients I once knew by name, and saw, yet haven’t seen in years. I am alone, as near as I can tell, going on 14 years, when I began, ten years was estimated as possible. Some have died, many are now bed-ridden, no one else walks into the infusion room. The CDC statement on this “plandemic, and previous, states no one currently in treatment for a serious medical condition should ever get “vaccinated” during the process, yet cancer patients, Parkinson’s, M.S. ALS, all such patients are being told to get their shot, even as our risk is an hundred times that of one with no neurological issues.

Yes, a good example of turning logic on its head. They have been saying “the most vulnerable should get protection first”, meaning that those with major diseases (even 3 or 4) must get the jab first.

I had an idea overnight and thought I’d share it and get opinions from others…
First and foremost, this is a crime. Why don’t we start treating like one. What would happen if we all chose a day to visit our local police station – this could be coordinated nationally so that sceptics visited nearly every police station in the country and simply reported the crime. Not the various measures taken to tackle CV (which are themselves crimes against humanity) but the original crimes committed by Anthony Fauci and his associates:

Violations of the 1925 Protocol for the Prohibition of the Use in War of Asphyxiating, Poisonous, or other Gases, and of Bacteriological Methods of Warfare (the Geneva Protocol) 1972 Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, and Stockpiling of Bacteriological and Toxin Weapons and Their Destruction (the BTWC)

Now that we know (thanks to the brilliant Dr David Martin) that this virus was man made and the subject of many, many patents why can’t we familiarise ourselves with the contents of his dossier (available here) and simply report it to the police?
Am I being naive? What have we got to lose?

David Martin is controlled opposition. Whether there is a manmade virus or not, what people are testing for is not that. The test produces positive results on some sort of arbitrary basis but I think reporting crime to the police is not a bad idea. The crime is telling us there’s a “novel” coronavirus when there isn’t one and then implementing all the ludicrous measures on the basis of the fictitious virus.

Stop accusing absolutely everyone of being controlled opposition. It’s a lazy term that’s borderline meaningless.

I agree that there’s no Covid virus – the PCR test is nonsense – I also agree that Stefan Lanka in particular has shown massive scientific problems with Germ theory that will probably eventually spell the end of Germ Theory as we know it. However, it’s unrealistic to expect Martin to know about all this. He’s simply testifying as to what he knows and what he’s uncovered about corporate malfeasance.

Note that even when he speculates he warns people he’s speculating now. He’s careful to separate what he knows factually from what’s just his assumptions. To ask him make claims about viruses he has no qualifications for is not fair.

I don’t accuse absolutely everyone of being controlled opposition, just a lot of people. The thing is though that CO is completely predictable. If it wasn’t out there in force then they wouldn’t be following typical large-psyop MO. I don’t think everyone’s CO because I’m paranoid and overly suspicious, I’m not really that kind of person. I recognise they are because that’s large-psyop MO and they’re generous in that they let us know with obvious signs. How many times must I say it? They always let us know.

Dolores Cahill tells us she’s CO because she told us that she never wore a mask on a plane and one doesn’t have to. “One of the times I was detained for four hours in an airport was in Dublin.” Right, so she spends four hours more than necessary travelling by air in order not to wear a mask. I’ve managed to never wear a mask so far (including one flight with zero detention) but if it meant being “detained” for four hours in an airport on more than one occasion I wouldn’t do it.

Reiner Fuellmich tells us that people in Australia are getting thrown in prison for not wearing a mask or not wearing it properly. Nonsense! No one in Australia … yet … is thrown in jail for not wearing a mask, even if fake stories tell us that, but certainly there aren’t even any fake stories saying people are thrown in prison for not wearing a mask properly.

These are experts or highly knowledgeable people I’m 100% confident are NOT CO – or if any of them are – they’re so far along the truth end of the spectrum it hardly makes a difference.

You do accuse an awful lot of people of being controlled opposition though don’t you. And your criteria are hard to understand as they seem based on your ‘intuition.’ Eg almost every person who has revealed hard physical evidence about 9/11 is ‘controlled opp’ in your eyes, but some guy who says the towers were fake is the real deal. 🤷‍♀️

So when you say I accuse an awful lot of people, Sophie, is it your belief that only a small number of controlled opposition agents would be used for a massive psyop like this? Is that what you believe?

Are you referring to Simon Shack as the person I think the real deal? When did I say that? I think he’s right about the faking of death obviously and I think it’s possible that what they show us for the tower collapses is faked – but haven’t looked closely to have an opinion one way or the other (obviously, there were towers there and they came down but it doesn’t necessarily mean that what they show us was the actual collapses of the twin towers). Real deal? Not so sure about that. They have their agents at every rung of the truth ladder, however, not sayin’ he ain’t the real deal either, just not sure.

What’s so crazy about that? You think everything was as normal in those buildings before they came down? The thing is it’s not so important what exactly went on those buildings – the two crucial things are – controlled demolition, full evacuation.

I have to admit I haven’t because just at the point when I was about to I came across the video put out by Chad Chaddington just prior to the one I link to below (don’t need to watch the prior one if you watch this one).
https://153news.net/watch_video.php?v=G59D4AD1N8AS

What you need to remember is that CO often put out TRUE information but that true information can be used to mislead. Sure, there might have been patents made on whatever but does that mean whatever the patents were made on are what is out there infecting people? No, it doesn’t. Do the patents even have to be “real”. Could these alleged patents have been planted in advance to act as a decoy when the “pandemic” hit.

It seems to me very clear that no virus from any source is playing a role in this psyop but tests and vaccines are. They don’t need a virus when they’ve got tests and vaccines to do the work they need done and they have much better control over those things than they do over a virus.

Martin is not actually saying it’s manmade. He’s saying portions of it are patented, and the patented bits became the vaccine. Rather than manmade the implication is the virus is imaginary, invented to ‘justify’ the vax.

I admit, Sophie, I didn’t listen to him although I was going to. When I saw the Chad Chaddington video I thought that provided enough information to seriously doubt Martin’s authenticity. But the thing is so what if they patented “portions of the virus” (whatever that means)? It just seems like distraction to me.

This is what fakeologist has to say on him. Sophie, I get very weary of controlled opposition, very, very weary. I’m not going to check out every person carefully. If there’s any signs I’ll call it and if I’m wrong, so be it – happy for someone to prove me wrong – I love the idea of someone being genuine I previously thought wasn’t.

And I have a V for Vaxxed sticker with the silhouette of two syringes forming a V for any who have Volunteered for the DEPOP shot.

I won’t pull any punches or hold back on the language I use. I’m not going to argue with strangers, or to persuade them of anything. I hand out the stickers if they ask me stupid questions.

I don’t have the time or the inclination to explain to people too lazy to read the literature, the false paradigm of monocausal germ theory, the fraud of virus isolation or list the compounds in the injectables, and the 22 side effects (including death) that the FDA was advised of, previous to the rollout. That’s all on them. They should have done their own research.

If someone states they’ve been “vaccinated” I tell them to get their living will and legal affairs in order.

“… these people are not sadistic, the context of their actions must always be considered…a lab-situation that carries its own momentum; the results are disturbing, human nature cannot be counted on to insulate man from
BRUTALITY and INHUMANE treatment at the DIRECTION of malevolent AUTHORITY.

Do what they are told to do, irrespective of the content of the act, without limitations of CONSCIENCE so long as they perceive that the command comes from a LEGITIMATE AUTHORITY .. one can only wonder what government with its vastly greater authority and prestige can command of its subjects”

(Voice-over at the end of the “Milgram experiment” Video-clip (Yale, 1962) title: OBEDIENCE

How is it possible, that “ordinary” people can be brought to accept and support inhumane and unjust rules and regulations, just because they were issued by an “authority”?  

Man has continued to evolve by acts of disobedience … there were men who dared to say no to the powers that be in the name of their conscience or their faith, but also intellectual development was dependent on the capacity for being disobedient to authorities who tried to muzzle new thoughts […].

If the capacity for disobedience constituted the beginning of human history, obedience might very well, as I have said, cause the end of human history. I am not speaking symbolically or poetically….” (Erich Fromm: On disobedience – Why freedom means saying No to Power – available online)

THE MORAL HIGH-GROUND

A major factor at work here is the exploitation of MORALITY as a psychological WEAPON:

We all remember the manipulative NATO-slogan “responsibility  to protect” (R2P) which was used to (seemingly) legitimate crimes of military aggression and terrorism in several countries (Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc.) Now, it seems that the “chickens have come home to roost”.

Fromm writes “nothing protects us from doing the most cruel things in the name of morality

and this is an important observation in the pandemic context because “following the rules” has been sold to the public as a moral obligation and this manipulation also affects the politicians themselves (with the exception of those, who are part of the orchestrated “Plandemic”).

If you have swallowed the premise that your strict obedience (to tyrannical decrees) is necessary to “save lives” then any resistance against the draconian measures is automatically seen as immoral and wrong. So the obedient “herd” can regard themselves as virtuous and frown upon the critical citizens who act in a “selfish and irresponsible” manner (this works especially well with journalists – just watch BBC “morning shows” …)

Fromm also pointed out that by blindly accepting an authority’s command I can suspend my own judgement whether something is good or bad and hence circumvent the demands of my own conscience and replace it with  

Obedience to the AUTHORITARIAN conscience, the internalized voice of an authority whom we are eager to please and afraid of displeasing. And like all obedience to outside thoughts and power, tends to debilitate humanistic conscience, the ability to be and to judge myself.

Different from the authoritarian conscience is the “HUMANISTIC conscience“; this is the voice present in every human being and independent from external sanctions and rewards. Humanistic conscience is based on the fact that as human beings we have an intuitive knowledge of what is human and inhuman, what is conducive of life and what is destructive of life. This conscience serves our functioning as human beings. It is the voice which calls us back to ourselves, to our humanity….

In a certain sense this is an inversion of the Milgram experiment because this time the message they want to imprint in our brains is:

·      If you DO NOT obey, you will HARM other people   >unvaccinated) [in contrast to:]

·      You MUST OBEY even if it means harming other people.

So in the pandemic PSYOP scenario, it is the role of the politicians (who are not part of the game) to administer the “electric shocks” to the whole population, no matter how much damage this will inflict on society, because “science (reason) demands it”.

I think It is THEY who are the major targets of this PSYOP (the “bewildered herd” is regularly exposed to propaganda anyway. Another ignored factor is the systemic corruption of medicine (e.g. see the book “deadly medicines and organized crime” by Peter Goetzsche)

This is absolute bs. The politicians are not the targets of a Psy-Op they are in on the scam 100% and perpetrating the Psy-Op onto the public by allowing absurd emergency laws when there’s no emergency. They have funded all this fraud through taxpayer grants and dollars, and signed onto WHO contracts which implies foreknowledge. They have failed to produce any evidence that there is any virus or pandemic.I could list numerous more crimes.

It’s very simple.

The virus is fictitious, the test is fraudulent, the pandemic event was planned for decades and is only another round of the same virus scam that has been perpetrated since Smallpox in Jenner’s day. All the politicians were put into place to take the heat off those who direct government policy, which is supranational policy, such as Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030, which is a depopulation agenda. Those politicians who have not cooperated with the rollout of the kill shots have been dealt with by assassination.

So I don’t know what you are talking about. I can only assume you are yet another government operative, writing nonsense to mar the simplicity and obviousness of the numerous crimes against humanity, racketeering and fraud, conspiracy to commit mass murder, and mass murder using an experimental gene therapy without informed consent, currently being committed by every person in government or science or the media that has made false statements and is participating directly in this fraud. It’s all easily proven.

But it is enlightening to see RTD and IM awarding this nonsense with accolades.

In remembrance of the Monday demonstrations in the former German Democratic Republic that led to the fall of the Wall and as protest, we “go for a walk” in the city center every Monday.

We usually embrace each other in greeting and farewell, which makes a strong statement in times of lockdown and social distancing.

Instead of red triangles we wear buttons with a text saying “umarmbar”, which could be translated as “you can hug me” (if you want).

I only noticed only after reading this article how strong that as a statement actually is.

People who could but do not get vaccinated are responsible for the deaths and social and economic damage they cause. The evidence is clear that vaccines work and are safe enough to be used to prevent COVID infections or reduce their severity. It is disheartening to see this kind of anti-vaccine disinformation-propaganda being passed as real information.

There is plenty of evidence to show that the vaccine is safe so far and highly effective.

One source wrote this about a month ago: Nearly all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. now are in people who weren’t vaccinated, a staggering demonstration of how effective the shots have been and an indication that deaths per day — now down to under 300 — could be practically zero if everyone eligible got the vaccine. An Associated Press analysis of available government data from May shows that “breakthrough” infections in fully vaccinated people accounted for fewer than 1,200 of more than 107,000 COVID-19 hospitalizations. That’s about 1.1%. And only about 150 of the more than 18,000 COVID-19 deaths in May were in fully vaccinated people. That translates to about 0.8%, or five deaths per day on average.

Another source recently wrote this: Texas has seen nearly 9,000 COVID-19 deaths since February. All but 43 were unvaccinated people. Preliminary data shows 99.5% of COVID-related deaths in Texas were among unvaccinated people according to the Department of State Health services.

Perhaps it is not exactly what Hopkins is saying here, but I’ve heard the arguments about hypnotism or brainwashing. I’m not buying it. If that were true, then the people who have fallen for this should be at least somewhat randomly distributed. However, from the people I know personally, each one is acting exactly as I would have predicted in this situation. There are no surprises. Those who have always been concerned only with material possessions and status are fully on board with the official narrative and refuse to question or learn anything.

I do not agree with you because I have seen brainwashing in real time and in my face. In Divorce its called Parental Alienation Syndrome where the child fully believes and makes statements that are patently untrue and border on the insane regarding one parent which helps the other parent attack the to soon to be ex. I suggest any one who is interested in this read “Divorce Poison”. I forget the authors name but he is an expert in the area. I read the book because I lived the Divorce and it blew my mind that what I was seeing with my own children and ex was what was written in the text, almost down to the most minute detail.

Part of the heartbreaking reality of Parental Alienation Syndrome is that once the child has been fully immersed and controlled and programmed by the Alienating Parent, they are hermitically sealed from any reprogramming. The author fully admits that even the most skilled therapist will find it nearly impossible to traverse the minefield set up in the child’s mind by anyone to change or challenge that child’s view of the alienated parent. One misstep and that is it, they will clam up and no conversation is possible after that. His advice to parents who find themselves in these normally extreme cases is to seriously consider the fact that walking away and having no contact whatsoever with your child is the only way to protect you own metal health. I have to agree with him.

From my personal perspective we have large numbers of our Western Societies that have been mass programed to hate everything. The programmers only have to tell them what or who to hate and they are gleefully happy to oblige. These children that have been alienated from one of their parents are very unhappy and dysfunctional human adults.

I do not know whether any of the Co-Videons can be reprogrammed or deprogrammed or whether like a rabid sociopath have to be isolated from civil society. We are rapidly loosing our civil society to a bunch of sociopaths, that should be abundantly clear to anyone who still have some mental functionality left.

I think we can hope for the best but must prepare for the worst and the worst will be Hell on Earth which we are close to now. I do not agree that targeting the masterminds of this operation is either futile or naïve. We have only gone through a mental mind warp but reality still exists and the sudden reoccurrence of it may shake some up.

But they also have the universal human ability to be affected by trance induction. And they ARE entranced. What’s been spewing from the lamestream mediawhores, the pocket-pols and the technocrats this past sixteen months is – blatantly – a huge induction effort, designed by the denizens of various applied-psychology ratholes, and getting promoted by whoever’s behind the useful-idiot whores, and pulling their ‘Deceived Influencer’ strings.

And naturally, the influencers have fallen for the trance induction themselves, like so many. The part of them which acts out implanted ‘beliefs’ during trance is at work right now, even though, as with anyone in trance, there’s another part of their minds which knows perfectly well that it’s all a pretence.

This ancient propensity of human psychology has entranced millions, regardless of their personal-interest calculations. That’s what’s deceived so many of them into ‘believing’ the covid scam, and into helping to propagate it; the poor suckers.

What does this mean? In the first place, covid is undefined. So, can it kill anyone?

For example, the CDC themselves say that of all the “deaths due to Covid-19” that only 6% of that total died of “Covid only.” The rest died “with Covid”. The average death also had 2.6 comorbidities and the average age was 82.5 years old. Prior to March 2020, death certificates would not have classified death in that way. Secondary or tertiary causes would not have been listed as cause of death. This loose attitude towards “Covid deaths” was a policy change by the CDC for “Covid-related deaths” only. Obviously, it vastly and artificially increased the Covid death count.

Covid is a code on a death certificate to certify that a person has died of any illness or disease within 28 days of a positive test.

There is no way to clinically diagnose covid.
The diagnosis is made via RT-PCR process which is a dna amplification tool.

It doesn’t diagnose any disease.

No autopsy is required.

And this crap passes for “science” in the midst of “a deadly, world-wide pandemic”. That’s one of the biggest stinkers in all this. If this was really a “novel” virus wouldn’t our docs and scientists be trying to find out everything they could? Nope, not this time. Assume someone has covid, get your hospital paid handsomely for their “treatment” and when it results in death, make sure you cremate the bodies quickly. Yep, real science right there!

I agree – really, really stupid. There was a build up to the narrative pre March 2020 so I was sceptical during that time. When the lockdowns started, I thought maybe I may have misunderstood, so I spent 3 days doing research. At the end of day 3 I came to the conclusion the whole thing was a lie, covid did not exist and I would carry on as normal. I mixed as much as possible and failed to catch the non-existent disease. I made allowances for people who fell for the con, thinking they would see through it later. Sixteen months later I cannot believe how many still are convinced there is a deadly disease out there and that millions have died. People have told me that millions have died in the UK, not just in the whole world.

The blatant lies by authority and the media is so in our faces. People get jabbed, have side effects, some life changing, then go onto have jab 2!

Many years ago I realised ‘normal’ people do some strange things, including things that are harmful to themselves. I started referring to them as ‘normal nuts’.

As a rule, I try to stay out of BTL comments, because I figure I’ve already had my say. But I’m making an exception this time, because I want to apologize for this “red triangle” idea.

It came to me during a brief moment of optimism, after I noticed many New Normals (who still believe the overall official Covid narrative as if it were the Word of God) beginning to speak out, albeit just mildly, against the segregation of the “Unvaccinated” … not because they had changed their minds about the virus, but because they oppose segregation, and naked authoritarianism, and nasty stuff like that, on general principle, and do not want to see themselves (or be seen by others) as authoritarians and segregationists. This made me hopeful that such people could still be reached and provoked into action with classic non-violent civil disobedience tactics, like the “red triangle” idea.

What I failed to take into account was how many people on our side have absolutely no idea how classic non-violent civil disobedience tactics work, and are thus incapable of understanding the “red triangle” as anything other than a tribal “identity” badge, like a MAGA hat, or an LGBTQ rainbow t-shirt, or some other simplistic tribal flag. As I wrote in my piece, “the point of a visual protest like this is to force the New Normals to confront a different representation of what they, and we, are … to remind them what they are actually doing, and who they are actually doing it to,” as the “lunch-counter” actions did in the civil rights movement in the USA in the 60s. But I realize now that is way too complicated, as it requires people to think in a non-literal, strategic way, and to have some basic knowledge of history.

Also — and this was particularly stupid of me — I thought it might be a way to motivate people to get off the Internet for a little while and actually, physically, get together with other people and organize and carry out actions like those civil rights “lunch counter” actions, “red triangle” sit-ins or whatever, and other face-to-face actions like that (which some people are already successfully doing in their communities, not with red triangles, but using their own signs, symbols, and strategies).

Anyway, I realize now how foolish and hope-drunk I was when I hatched this “red triangle” idea. Clearly, we are doomed, and no amount of collective non-violent civil disobedience, or any sort of overly-complicated neo-Situationist analysis, can save us. So please accept my apologies. I will try to refrain from this kind of thing from now on, and stick to satirically chronicling our inexorable descent into pathologized totalitarianism.

All best wishes from New Normal Berlin …

First, I am a huge fan of your work! Your articles inspire and give me strength!

The only “problem” with the triangle idea was that it was specific. The idea of rubbing what I call the Coronazombies’ noses in what they are actually doing is great idea! Just like when you go to a march and you see all kinds of signs with such imaginative and to-the-point slogans, people’s imaginations will create the “triangles” that fit their circumstances.

I have already used your suggestion just yesterday. My workplace is transitioning back from remote working to be all in the office. Thing is, a lot of people like remote working. So now there is an opening for discussion.
For me it’s different as I don’t intend on getting vaxxed and don’t want to wear a mask. I will be required to wear a mask if I come in. So i just asked them if they see themselves having a segregated workplace at some point. This will be an uncomfortable question for them to answer. I would not have dared to ask had I not read your article. Now, anytime I can make people uncomfortable about what they are doing, I will. Thanks!

If the symbol is subject to flag-ism, how about a choice of a compendium of segregationist symbols. I already use my ” impending yellow star ” in conversations, perhaps the act of wearing any such symbol could resonate with the U crowd and maybe make a few of the fervent V crowd think a bit.

Here’s the problem: I was going to give you kudos for this idea,
not because of the specifics, but because the most effective (maybe only)
method to combat propaganda is to flip the script.

In this case it’s your idea to flip the script on the nazi’s red triangle, it’s bold and brilliant,
and shocking and for that reason alone it’s worth pursuing.

Ahem, it’s why black people call their buddies niggas. By using it as a term of endearment it destroys the negative connotations of the words and flips the script. I’d bet it even reduces the ‘harm’ of white people using it with the -er at the end (lol, can’t say the word because people so afraid, touche). Then again, it may do the opposite.

I’m going to look into putting a U on my mask, red triangle or no red triangle.

LOL, maybe an F (for Freedom) and a U (unvax) on the mask, U/F, F/U, maybe one mask says F right beside a person with U, could ‘get quite a laugh.’ Felix Bressart, To Be or Not to Be.

you will always be on the back foot when you use pointless impotent imagery, particularly, it will be open to ‘misinterpretation’… it’s obvious really with it being symbolism.. one can never be overt with such things which is why symbolism is generally hidden..

I’m afraid resistance for those still capable of thinking will have to be on a, ahem, more unitary basis..

I have adopted your proposal for the triangle and have just added it to my website. I have also them out of rough red fabric and hand drawn the letter ‘U’. For my purpose, your idea is superb and I only wish you had written this article last year.

I am finding that the covid zombies seem to have no concern about the looming segregation issue. They are mindlessly parroting what they have been indoctrinated to shriek. They need a wake up call and I find that word just do not get through their thick skulls. I believe the red badge will finally make many of those I speak with start to think about what they parrot.

Do not misjudge those who recognize the covid fraud. These are inquiring minds who always make a point of doing their own research and are not beguiled by the Fauci’s of the world. These are independent, strong minded thinkers who are unlikely to fall into the ‘trial identity’ trap.

A big thanks again for your red-triangle idea.

I think your suggestion and anything else along the same lines is stupid. This is obviously a war, one involving an invisible enemy who have turned a large portion of the population into their footsoldiers through a lifetime of conditioning.

You’re operating under the wrong assumption that people are momentarily confused and that some act can bring back to their senses.They’re not. They’re deeply fucked up. They won’t see the triangle as a wake-up call but as a “shoot here” sign.

Worse still, even if people somehow resisted en masse, the best we have is going back to the old status quo, which was fucked up to say the least. Ripe for a collapse. But we have no alternative, at least not one that would be widely accepted and ready to be implemented. We know what we’re against, we don’t know what we’re for.

Sadly, I don’t think that the world’s entry into an age of darkness can be prevented. People will have to live through it, eat shit, and experience digital tyranny before they can break free, which they will because every system will eventually corrupt itself and every action generates reaction.

As I mentioned elsewhere, well-meaning people should stay anonymous, carry a bag of spanners and toss them in the works when the motherfuckers aren’t looking, be as cunning as possible, WWII Resistance-like. The last thing they should do is rat themselves out.

Despair? Undignified? Give me a break!

I’m very pragmatically assessing reality and feasible courses of action. Unlike you, obviously, I had grandparents who fought in WWII Resistance, and I learned a thing or two from them about fighting the enemy in an occupied territory, which is, on a much more comprehensive scale, what’s happening today. But even you would probably acknowledge that wearing a sign “Nazis are shitheads” in Nazi-occupied Europe in the 1940s or “Stalin is an asshole” in the USSR in the 1950s wouldn’t be a wise thing.

What I, personally, stand for is something along the lines of Hayek’s spontaneous order, but that’s irrelevant. What is necessary is a debate among well-meaning people that would produce a vision for the future. An alternative to the Great Reset technocratic totalitarianism, which people can embrace. An alternative to the alleged democracy that has corrupted itself, if it every worked properly, not just this covidian bullshit. This is what people should have been engaged in all along, in pre-covidian times. They haven’t. Save for a few, they’ve accepted the status quo and only tackled the most striking injustices within the system, without understanding the system’s inherent flaws and how they’re exploited. As a result, nobody has an alternative to the Great Reset to offer. We have no Great Reset Our Way.

You keep publishing one article after another that for an umpteenth time confirms the obvious, that we’re in the midst of a global coup d’etat, WWIII. What precisely do you think you’ll accomplish? People who wanna see it, see it. People who don’t won’t. You’re convincing the convinced. If you mean well, why don’t you shift the narrative you’re pushing, i.e. the incredulous reiteration of “we’re under attack” combined with infantile opposition tactics along the lines of the triangle, to a debate about what the new world should be? The train has left the station, there’s no going back. Nor is it desirable, really. Or do you have a favorite point in the past you’d like to go back to? Which one? Anyway, it’s time to move on. Try to motivate people to formulate positive thoughts for a change, instead of whining that things are fucked up.

You seem to be all over the place. Why are you attacking one of the only news outlets to have nailed this agenda from the start, as we continue countering the propaganda messaging?

If the propaganda machine continues to roll out ‘cases’ and ‘vaccines’ and ‘lockdowns’ it’s for a reason, to establish a new ‘reality’, as the author adroitly outlines above. Therefore it’s necessary to counter with the facts. The simple truths are always in danger of being buried, and that way oblivion lies.

We DO make an effort to stay positive, it is an important part of our output. We try to inject humour and publish varying perspectives to help benefit everyone in a variety of ways. The last thing we are is endlessly bleak.

I believe you are mistaken if you think red pills are permanent. They aren’t. Remember that bit in the Matrix (which has just come back on Netflix)? XD Many crave the cosy duvet of conformity, many are getting ‘vaccinated’ so they can ‘put all this behind them’ and go travelling.

If you want to go ‘underground’ then you go ahead, although I suggest you may just be rationalising the above. I don’t think we’ve arrived at that point yet, personally.

For what it’s worth I very much appreciated your push for actual ACTION (Get your asses up from the internet!! ) . I feel your very same urge, but I do not feel the red triangle would work in my broader environment. Only a handful of people here ever opened a history book and even fewer actually understood the content. So a symbol that means nothing is no symbol at all. Most members of my community just won’t spend time on learning and thinking about the meaning, I have tried that before.

You see, people around me are trained (imprisoned) in binary thinking:
Good or Bad
Obedient or Antisocial
Left or Right
Etc.

At work and elsewhere the subject came up, I point out the parallelism between the actual situation and Third Reich politics, and the side the covidians are taking.
The response is always like this:

Media = information, so
Vaccine = good, so
Antivaxxer = bad.

Nazi = bad
Me, obedient = good, so
Me no Nazi!
Hey! Did you just insult me?!
You = bad

That is genuine stupidity as I understand it!
I’m not quite sure how to fight that…

Neither I am sure how classic non violent civil disobedience works, as I never witnessed such a behavior. I was born in the Democratic Republic of Germany (now living in Spain) so I learned a few things as a kid (and yes, I know very well the Wall did not fall because of the massive popular non violent protests!), but not enough.
On that matter I would very much appreciate input and education.
Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher, and I mean that!

Perhaps it is time to admit that the community of Covid sceptics needs to be educated, too.

Take this for what it is, just my opinion.

I should add here, that in terms of strategic thinking, the idea of bringing the covidians on our side (or at least to more benign neutral position) should be the priority, in order to make resistence effective. I just doubt that it could be done by Gaslighting (that is how most covidians perceive the Nazi – victim paradigm), Projection (that is what Media are doing to us), or Generalisation (as even intellectual lazy people consider that intellectual laziness).

From realising the pivotal truth of 9/11, that death and injury were staged, I realised that in psyops the perps only do what they want for real and fake the rest. Obviously, in this psyop they want to kill people because the vaccines are killing people as have done the aggressive drug trials, suicide has gone up, etc
https://realnewsaustralia.com/2020/10/01/covid-19-excess-mortalities-viral-cause-impossible-drugs-with-key-role-in-about-200000-extra-deaths-in-europe-and-the-us-alone

They want to kill people in this psyop for reasons I do not know (cannot accept the depopulation argument at this stage because the numbers killed are simply too few for a depopulating effect however who knows what will transpire – perhaps the vaccine will have a fertility-compromising effect but not immediately so it’s not too obvious) but they didn’t want to kill people on 9/11 (or only a small number if any) just as they didn’t want to kill people at the events staged in Sandy Hook, Manchester, Westminster, London Bridge, Orlando, San Bernardino, Boston, Toronto, Ottawa, Roseburg, Bronx-Lebanon Hospital, Bologna Station 1980 and on and on and on and on.
https://occamsrazorterrorevents.weebly.com/other-events.html

Knowing that they only do what they want for real I knew from Day One, before the fraudulent science for the virus was exposed, that there would be no “novel” virus because they only want us to believe in the virus, they don’t want one for real and a real one wouldn’t work for their narrative in any shape or form, just as real planes and killing and injuring all those people wouldn’t have worked for 9/11 (although as I say they’re killing people in plain sight now and people are just swallowing it). A psyop is all about getting people to believe through smoke’n’mirrors and only do for real when it’s wanted. Doing something for real in order to make people believe is antithetical to psyop MO. They revel in their ability to propagandise us into believing stuff while all the while showing us the truth underneath – and yet still getting us to believe complete nonsense.

So we have a Problem > Reaction > Solution scenario with the made-up virus being the problem. We need go no further than the truth of no virus … and when we do we’re immediately in propagandaland because the Reaction and Solution parts of the scenario are a form of distraction. We see very clearly in the Frontline Doctors (what more blatant name could they choose?) that their propaganda job is to wax lyrical about all the things wrong with the Reaction and Solution parts as a form of distraction while accepting the fraudulent Problem part.

If there’s no Problem (no “novel” virus), then no need for a Reaction or Solution of any kind whatsoever.

— It’s not a question of whether masks work against the alleged pathogen or not, we don’t need ’em whatsoever.

— It’s not a question of whether the vaccines work against the alleged pathogen, contain dangerous chemicals, will become compulsory or not, we don’t need ’em whatsoever.

No virus then no nothing, nada, niente, nothing. All discussion of Reaction and Solution is moot. But – unsurprisingly, because it’s exactly what the propagandists want – it’s out there in absolutely enormous quantities. The vast majority of writers (but not the commenters) here and most other places tend to accept the existence of the “novel” virus and focus on the parts occupying propagandaland.

I find it curious, CJ, that you do not acknowledge the lack of existence of the “novel” virus … or have I missed that acknowledgement somewhere?

Telly and ‘radio’…when I park for my click and collect (I don’t trust my temper so I avoid confrontation where possible, and no mask needed for click and collect), before I leave the house I line up a powerful scientific dialogue, e.g. Dr Hoffe’s study on capillary clotting from the jabs and the long term clotting disaster looming in the next 3 years, and I play it loudly with the windows down when I park. I note people are listening, and one lady commented previously it was ‘nice to hear the radio whilst working’ after she’d listened intently for 15 minutes. Importantly, this lady perceived my pre-loaded information as live radio. It removes all the dangers of being met with anger or disdain when you are perceived to be forcing a different narrative…they hear it as if it were live radio debate, and I can tell in their eyes it is registering.

Now, if I knew how to, I’d probably try and set up a big telly in the local park, and just play pre-loaded clips for a few hours, and let them watch it if they want to…they all believe the telly thus far, so let’s try them with carefully selected clips from the platforms we all use?

I’ve opted for more direct signs of my disapproval of the covid exaggeration. I wear various file cards with messages. Here are a few:
-DON’T VAX. IT’S NOT GOOD FOR YOU.

-IF IT REQUIRES CENSORSHIP IT’S NOT SCIENCE.

-A VIRUS! QUICK– BURN THE BILL OF RIGHTS.

-1970: 200+ MEDIA COMPANIES
NOW: 6 BILLIONAIRE-CONTROLLED ONES

Some of the memes from off-g have been quite useful. By stating your disapproval, you encourage others and make disapproval less frightening to them. When I pass a line of masked people waiting to enter a store, I say loudly, “We are being lied to. This mask wearing is stupid.” Frequently a couple voices will pipe up, “I know it.” or “You’re right, but it’s required.” This lets the whole line know that mask-wearing doesn’t necessarily mean agreement.

The author mentions futile and suicidal. That’s precisely what this inane triangle idea is.

The world happens to be inundated with a tsunami of untold information horseshit that has fogged the brains of the majority of people, not to mention that their thinking wasn’t all that clear in the first place and that few have the balls to live a life of their own, as opposed to one scripted by whoever these sycophants consider their betters.

Over the past decades, people have been rocked to oblivious state by consumerist capitalism, made believe that the world has reached the ultimate stage of progress, rendered stupid by progressively more and more fucked up education, and so on, so forth.

People are fucked up. They ain’t ‘waking up’ because of some triangle. It’s infinitely naive to believe that anything like that will happen.

Instead of identifying themselves to the enemy, which is a pretty stupid thing to do if you ask me, well-meaning people need to go underground, fly under the radar, be as cunning as possible, and, most importantly, figure out an ideology, vision, image of the world for the future. A free, nature-oriented alternative to the hierarchical dystopia pushed by the covidian motherfuckers. A new concept of law. And promote all of that, which will be a long haul.

Thinking that the masses can be ‘woken up’ to defend human rights, freedoms, all that shit is naive. The past year or so has shown that most people are stupid cunts who don’t give a shit and wouldn’t so much as move their finger to defend their rights, even if their brainless selves understood that they’re under attack.

A friend just suggested helpfully that older people must take extra care. I pointed out a health spokesman stating that critical cases are mostly in their 50s and 40s now. I also mentioned that even younger people – even children – are succumbing now. I did not say anything about the jab. His response was to cut the call short.

Hmm, extreme proposition but desperate measures for desperate times I suppose. Perhaps worth a shot in Europe or US. I live in South East Asia, and would likely be arrested and deported quickly if I did this. Gaining ground in the information war in Asia has to be done with 1:1 conversations with street vendors, taxi drivers, people at the fresh markets. They are often very vocal with their concerns on the jabs and measures and once they open up I concisely tell them what’s really going on in the west.

The new normals and the climate of fear where I am is very intense. Govt now telling people to double mask and next day 80% do it. Now told to mask at home. I’ve just received a warning letter from the building management of where I reside, with CCTV screen captures of me not wearing a mask in the ‘common area’ and outdoors when collecting food delivery. CJ’s statement:

On the contrary, we need to become more confrontational. No, not violent. Confrontational. There is actually a difference, though the “woke” will deny it.

I agree here. I confronted the building management and reminded them this is a private residence and not public area. I asked them if they were service minded for their tenants or if they are more interested in enforcing the rules and becoming like the police. One of them looked sheepish and looked away from my eye contact. The other started ranting about the rules. I explained my medical reason for not wearing a mask with physical evidence – they said I need a doctor’s certificate. Such certificates are not issued here, I have tried. No exemptions. I explained that too. They have since threatened to call the police. I will move out in the next few days to standalone property with nobody to answer to.

I explained the situation to my landlord who was quite understanding. My final paragraph in the subsequent email:

I wish you luck in finding a new tenant and hope the events that have unfolded between the juristic management and I highlight just how damaging this climate of fear has become, along with the enforcement of nonsensical and totalitarian rules.

I think you are perhaps about 14 months too late with your triangle idea,the time has passed for tokens of dissent .
Facebook beat you to the idea with their obnoxious ‘covid’ frames for your pictures,albeit for fraggles on the other side of the fence.
In the coming weeks and months a token such as a triangle will mark you out as surely as a roundel painted on your back with the words ‘aim here’ beneath it
The resistance fighters of ww2 didn’t exactly walk round with tokens attached to their clothing stating ‘resistance member’ .
The world is going to become an increasingly segregated place very very soon and if you are genuine about total resistance you will need to learn how to move amongst the covid cult adherents unseen and in plain sight and also learn their language and idioms because if you don’t you will find yourself in an institution for re education faster than you can say red triangle

Carry a hanky.

Tell others to carry and use one, too.

We used to carry hankies back when men were men and so on. They stifle coughs and sneezes and then go back into the pocket. Works FAR, FAR better for nasal projectile control than a worthless mask.

Allows one to travel freely in public without concern. Use it for droplet control, just like it was designed to do. Doubles as a mask if/when around the sick and elderly who just need an extra ounce of precaution while you stop to talk to them. Once done, walk away and pocket it.

The whole damned world would benefit from a handkerchief!

The New Normals — i.e., those still wearing masks outdoors, shrieking over meaningless “cases,” bullying everyone to get “vaccinated,” and collaborating with the segregation of the “Unvaccinated” — are not behaving the way they’re behaving because they are stupid. They are behaving that way because they’re living in a new “reality” that has been created for them over the course of the last 17 months by a massive official propaganda campaign, the most extensive and effective in the history of propaganda.

The second sentence contradicts the first. The old normal took a lifetime of propaganda to become their reality – but the new normal took only 17 months of propaganda?

I regret being the bearer of bad tidings, but that sure does sound like stupidity to me.

Thanks for the suggestion; I suspect the invert triangle is too subtle for anywhere except Germany, but the point of satire is to stir discussion.

The 21st century method is through memes, eg:

The New Normal is so saturated with propaganda – as the article mentions, there is a continual stream of passive propaganda, masks being only one example – that subtleties fly in one ear & out the other.

And now some governments are literally banning speech:

Too much true science has been transmuted into the draconian religion of scientism. This comes complete with authoritarian priests – the technocrats – who, like fanatical-bigot religious nuts everywhere, are absolutely certain that they know better than we mere ignorant-and-stupid hoi polloi what’s good for us, and we should do as we’re told, absolutely without presuming to question or argue. And if we don’t, we should be kicked into submission, with punishments up to and including death.

Always the way with the self-promoted religious-certainty bigots. The only way of dealing effectively with them is to turn them out of power and stop listening to their tirades. And as with scientism, the same goes with that other bastard child of science: $cience (for profit), where actual fact and truth give way always to money.

We, the people, the common plebs, are perfectly well able to decide all and every matter for ourselves. NOTHING is reserved only for the priesthood! We don’t need self-inflating bigots coming on strong with us They need a thorough slapping down.

Instead of the red inverted triangle I suggest a yellow star with the word „unvaccinated” written on it. It is a better known symbol. I didnt heard of the red inverted triangle before reading this article. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellow_badge
Actually I use to wear a T-shirt with the writting (in Romanian, as I live in Romania): ”Are you vaccinated? Keep the distance! I am allergic to stupid people”. It is a little more confrontational, which is fitting my personality. Reactions I received untill now from persons which I didnt previously known: One person asked me why am I wearing such a T-shirt and 3 persons congratulated me for it.

Just had to post this.

John Zerzan, arguably the world’s preeminent anarchist and “anti-civilization theorist,” has come out as a full bore demonizer of the unvaccinated. It’s all our fault, according to Zerzan, all the so called “spikes” and emerging “variants” – which don’t actually exist…. if you’re marching against compulsory injections with a vaccine that isn’t even a vaccine, the illustrious Mr. Zerzan, that “brave” “rebel” against the system, wants you to know that you are a mass murderer, because of course governments would never lie to us about that.

Slip to 9:45 to hear what Zerzan thinks of us:

The betrayal of every last principle on the part of so many leftists is breathtaking to behold. He has attacked Covid skeptics on several previous podcasts as well.

Our era is the first in universal history that claims only to have enemies that it itself has fabricated, in its image, and for its spectacular use. By projecting all of its own particular infamies and cruelties upon these simulated enemies, this new century makes it seem as if it were resolutely opposing them.

So as to combat the artificial enemies that it itself has placed on the scene, our world must apply itself to erasing and destroying – even in memory – its real and declared enemies so that the new century will avoid all the risks of undesirable contagion. It is required by the current permanent state of emergency, the state of emergency declared against society, with the pretence of being against the obscure and indeterminate enemy that the spectacle itself has created. It has created and staged (this) to convince us that the states fight against “evil” for our “good” and to persuade us that the one who fights the “absolute evil” is, as a result, already the “absolute good”. Every day the Ministry of Truth oversees the “correction of History” whether it is a question of what recently happened at Bataclan or elsewhere, with each day bringing new details, without any concern for possible self-contradiction, because new contradictions will be made every day. To have done with even the residue of real opposition, the current form of domination must make examples, it must burn witches, it must execute – even in effigy, any and all enemies who differ from the official ones, who are named each day… Gianfranco Sanguetti
