The Alibi of Tyrants At bottom, psychological warfare aimed at ushering in global autocracy

Julien Charles

“The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.”
Albert Camus

On John Steppling’s Aesthetic Resistance podcast, guest Varun Mathur posited that we are witnessing – on a global scale – an event called “projective identification”.

Something like the reverse of Stockholm Syndrome — when victims identify with their abuser — projective identification in psychoanalysis is the abuser who projects his lesser qualities onto the abused, and then sets about trying to eradicate them in the false version of the much put-upon victim.

Worse, the victim internalizes the projection, taking the projected qualities as his own, and then sets about fixing his illusory self. So you then have two entities foolishly trying to solve the afflictions of an illusory third entity. Interpreters of nonexistent maladies.

Capital and Its Discontents

Could it be that our relationship with the capitalist ruling class has perverted itself into such a state? In which the abusive state, removing rights to satisfy the requirements of corporate profit taking, projects its own profiteering monomania onto the servile population.

The freedom to profit, the libertine excess of avarice, being the sole objective of the system. In the feverish mind of the capital class, labor is forever scheming to take away its wealth and privilege. It sees in the underclass a dangerously unhinged desire to upend meritocracy and reward apathy.

It would feed those who don’t work, employ those without skills, laden lean corporations with higher taxes and needless overhead. So too would the scurvy working class deliver the rulers up to the altar of socialism, that chronic obsession of the downtrodden.

(And in some cases, Park Avenue elites might be delivered up to the guillotine. Or, as some would surely relish, Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci swinging from the Brooklyn Bridge, a grisly reproof of elitism by the populism baying below.)

And so — in this construct — the ruling class projects its own scheming and faithless character onto the very class it exploits. Only the underclass would reward sloth rather than merit, i.e., replace capitalism with socialism.

Same monomania, different ideology.

The ruling class projects its own monomania onto the working class, and then oppresses it in order to curtail what it sees as a dreadful radicalism.

Of course, in so doing the mandarins are vainly trying to salve a conscience made restive in part from the long-lived practice of profiting from the supposed delivery of public health. But health is diminished as profits rise.

The ruling class knows this, and must do all it can to stem the boiling rebellions that surface far beneath it. Cognitive dissonance has a nasty half-life.

Flattering to Deceive

Hence a domestic war on terror to “keep the rabble in line.” A new spotlight cast on loosely defined “extremism” and a reinvigorated effort to censor dissident voices through the vast tentacles of Big Tech. After all, the people that own the country ought to govern it (at least according to Founder Father John Jay).

In place of dissent, we have consensus, a “mile wide and an inch deep,” as a journalist once said referring to the mainstream. A consensus that the government is doing its damndest to keep us safe. All it does is done for the welfare of the people—protecting them from fatal pathogens, mendacious memes, and seditious knaves in viking attire.

But achieving this kind of mass consensus is no easy feat. It requires a massive media campaign, one that:

  • a) develops a common, consistent message platform;
  • b) assembles the awesome power of institutional and expert authority to confirm and sanction the messaging;
  • c) saturates every media channel with the message, in a million iterations.

The goal of this kind of propaganda – or disinformation – campaign is to simply overwhelm the reader, the listener, the viewer, until he or she surrenders to the message, concedes its validity and, crucially, follows its mandates. Masking, social distancing, isolating and quarantining, vaccinating, boosting, and evangelizing the same to others.

As one after another individual falls into compliance, groupthink forms, and resisters are soon conquered by peer pressure. As anyone knows, standing against a crowd is not only frightening but requires a kind of fortitude that few possess.

As Robert Kennedy Jr. notes in his book The Real Anthony Fauci, the protocols introduced to stem a so-called pandemic (reinterpreted by the CDC to enable use of the term without a huge death count, only cases, themselves reinterpreted to include spurious positive tests from a not-fit-for-purpose PCR test) are straight out of CIA handbooks for psychological warfare. They include techniques to:

shatter indigenous societies, obliterating…social bonds, for using imposed isolation and the demolition of traditional economies to crush resistance, to foster chaos, demoralization, dependence and fear, and for imposing centralized and autocratic governance.”

All of this has taken place, through masking and quarantine, the destruction of social life, the foreclosure of the small business economy, the creation of a mental health epidemic via mass isolation, and the authoritarian cast of public health dictates.

As people fall in line, psychologically bludgeoned into compliance, they come to resemble what Hannah Arendt called “schreibtischtäter,” or “desk killers,” usefully noted in a fine meditation by Edward Curtin. In a sense, all who are even nominally compliant are broadly complicit.

Compliance enables, even when we do it to save a job and feed a family. It is the almost the necessary indictment of everyone harnessed by a exploitive system (a reality that, by the way, gives the lie to so much cancel culture, and Twitter warriors who think they are somehow immune to hypocrisy).

But unlike disinformation campaigns about overt and covert wars like the Iraq War, Syrian War, Libyan War, and Vietnam, this kind of campaign must function at an incredibly high level of activity, churning out news and updates at an even greater pace than conventional war campaigns.

Namely because the changes implemented are happening in-country, not in some distant land where events can be easily falsified for the home audience. Unsurprisingly, there are few if any events better suited to a domestic disinformation campaign than a pandemic.

Viruses are by nature unseen, invisible to the eye, a fact that makes it possible to keep citizens in a state of constant fear, permanently alive with trepidation. By contrast, the War on Terror was a clunky, poor absorbed campaign that had to rely on frequent FBI entrapment schemes as well as false flags and fabricated foreign events to keep the population in a state of anxiety and compliance.

After 9/11 we rarely if ever saw foreign terrorists, and today we cannot see the virus. What we can see are the endless reams of statistical fear-mongering rendered by establishment authorities, from death tolls with unreliable attributions, to study after study that escalate the speculation of further horrors.

That we cannot not see. We are bombarded with it daily.

And with it we see the compliant, more vigilant than ever, behaving like citizen corps out to enforce the lockstep of groupthink. The subtle genius of this campaign is that dissent is now considered life-threatening.

But to accomplish this, the campaign had to be so comprehensive, so ubiquitous, that it literally produced a form of mass brainwashing.

The Massive

Not unlike Mather, psychologist Mattias Desmet has argued that we may be experiencing exactly that, the phenomenon of mass formation, better known as mass hypnosis. Desmet suggests four criteria must obtain for mass formation to take hold:

  • Many people feel social isolation
  • Lack of meaning
  • Free-floating anxiety
  • Free-floating aggression

It’s not unreasonable to suggest these criteria exist in our society right now—both as a consequence of the pandemic but also as its precursor. The isolation of quarantine sim fin. The social anomie wrought by soulless cycles of endless consumption.

The anxiety of the gig economy, a breathless treadmill of diminishing returns. The social trauma produced by viewing a ceaseless slipstream of social media videos spotlighting police misconduct, often killings (or murder, depending on your interpretation of events). And the outright fury inevitably conjured by this confection of mishaps.

Together, these circumstances have, to Desmet and others, generated a society of sleepwalkers, placing their faith in authority as people often do in situations of crisis, or perceived crisis (see presidential approval ratings during a foreign war of aggression characterized as an urgent fight ‘to protect our freedoms’).

There’s also something to be said for the idea that, if we are comprehensively aimless as a society (aside from the siren call of money-making), Covid has delivered an urgent purpose to people which they have seized upon with a passion: flattening the curve, stopping the spread, masking up, getting vaxxed, and working together to beat covid.

And, of course, lustily participating in the vilification of the unvaccinated.

All of it — crucially — beyond question.

Consensus in a crisis resists debate. There simply isn’t time, as an extinction-level event forms on the horizon. (One can see the same impatience and contempt for questions about the severity of climate change.)

And this is exactly what mass formation predicts, according to Desmet. The free-floating anxiety is easily attracted to a comprehensive narrative launched in society, one that identifies a cause of anxiety and steps necessary to remove it.

As more people accept and follow the narrative, “a new kind of solidarity” emerges that begins to resolve the sense of isolation people feel and provides meaning for their lives (engaging in an heroic struggle). So the original conditions of mass formation are addressed by the official narrative, the mandates of which become a kind of ritual that the masses participate in together.

We have seen this kind of mass formation before, in disenfranchised communities rooting about for meaning and purpose—desperately trying to shed the comprehensive anomie of post-war Germany. They fell for the fascist uplift of National Socialism, and ended in ruin.

The Nazis alienated Jews on grounds of public health; made them carry health ID cards and promoted the lie that they were carriers of Typhus.

Now we are witnessing the demonization of unvaccinated individuals and the forcible removal of their kind from acceptable society: in Austria, the unvaccinated face prison sentences; in Germany, they are banned from shops; in Italy, wages are withheld; in Canada, they cannot fly; in California, unvaccinated children will be removed from school; in Greece, pensioners will face steep monthly fines for non-compliance; in Australia, the unvaccinated are hustled into internment camps.

All of this as though such measures were absolutely and universally necessary to save humanity from a respiratory virus with an Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) of less than one percent. And for which there are numerous existing therapies available. The science does not appear to support this claim, even if the Science(™) does. But the latter brooks no dissent, while the former is rife with it.

The former is flagged for removal, the latter for promotion. But then algorithms were never impartial, were they?

Beyond Public Health

For many who sense the spectre of mass formation, something else is going on. Something beyond public health. Something, for some, even beyond profiteering.

Is an authoritarian revolution afoot, a not-so-subtle gambit for a global autocracy built on the bottom lines of Big Pharma and Biotech and ruthlessly enforced by a fascist bio-security state?

Can we hear a call in the distance, “Oligarchs of the world–unite!” Or are we instead witnessing the gross excesses of a capitalist system plagued by regulatory capture? Or, finally, as the mainstream would have it, are we simply seeing the scramble of flawed democratic governments to slow the spread, however ineffectually? Good people with good intentions, fatally flawed, as it were? (Sounds like Ken Burns whitewashing Vietnam.)

Ideologically, most people fall into one of these three camps. Yet mass formation, such as it exists, seems to prevent the population from seeing the first two options. The third option—a calamity of good intentions—is all that’s visible to the hypnotized.

Was it da Vinci that said there were three kinds of people: those that see, those that see when shown, and those that don’t see? The victims of mass formation fall where, do you think?

A large contingent of people are fortunately awake to the possibilities beneath the surface consensus—a placid lake of groupthink. This is not unusual. Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser wrote that we are all indoctrinated into the dominant ideology, following Marx’s idea that the dominant ideas of any culture are the ideas of its ruling class.

Prescient and pertinent (regardless of your opinion of Communism). Althusser argued further that a contingent of individuals, maybe a group, could be indoctrinated (his word was, unhelpfully, to interpellate) by a sub-ideology and would have a degree of—sorry—immunity from the mainstream doctrine which is of course only mainstream in its diffusion, not necessarily its acceptance.

This smaller group could then stage interventions in the dominant narrative—up from under, as it were—and begin to fracture its grip on popular consciousness.

This concept of Althusser’s is not unlike the scenario of The Matrix in which a rogue band of rebels upset the techno-tyranny of machines—all of it enforced by a particularly successful kind of mass formation. The red pill/blue pill dynamic exists today, but is fastidiously brushed aside by the official ruling class narrative.

Even twenty years ago, the inescapable relevance of the matrix construct was strong, and the film became a proverbial cult classic. So too did Fight Club, which sought to undermine the prevailing ethos of capitalist society and highlight the anomie of a life of perpetual consumption (of junk goods produced in the Shenzhen manufacturing zone while America turned into a giant rust belt).

In both films, the protagonists—Neo and Tyler Durden—function as portmanteaus for Althusserian interventions by sub-ideologues (rebels) into the system of mass oppression. There’s something of this in our current situation. If you don’t see it, you might have been blue pilled.

If you do see it, you probably came across a fortuitous article in an alternative magazine, listened to an off-the-beaten path podcast, followed a smart and informed social media influencer, or found another way to a more critical perspective. The mainstream would have us believe that these alternative sources are the real disinformation.

While that is partially true – there’s a ton of junk on social media – there is also a wealth of good information to be had in non-mainstream channels. And it is the mainstream that are the chief purveyors of both propaganda and groupthink.

It is not that these corporate outlets are daily fabricating events and stories from whole cloth. Sometimes, (Assange and Manafort in conclave?), but generally they are more clever than that. The best propaganda tells half the real story and shades it firmly in an ideological direction. Or, as the ever-quotable Benjamin Franklin once said, “A half truth is often a great lie.”

(The minority of elite capital owns the leading news outlets and disseminates its minority views to the masses, hoping to indoctrinate them in an alternative to the standard majority view, which tends toward meritocracy and a strong social safety net, as American polls typically bear out. Thus corporate media viewpoints are mainstream in name only.)

The Matrix: Resurrection opens at Christmas. There are many stories in entertainment—from films to graphic novels—that seem to revolve around a common theme: human bodies mediated by technology and eventually enslaved by it. Inevitably, the technology is employed to malign ends by mortal forces attempting to achieve immortality.

As days pass, these silver screen stories seem ever more relevant. After all, you can’t have “science fiction” without the “science.”

Julien Charles is a concerned citizen hoping to call attention to the authoritarian drift of states across the Western world, and the disingenuous narratives promoted to gain consensus for such measures.

Let’s prye open the unhinged minds of paranoid white nationalst extremist Trump loving insurrectionist anti abortion QAnon wacko nut job conspiracy theorists and rummage through their half baked incoherent slogans and irrational spittle flying rants about the cabals of pedo shape-shifting lizard aliens ruling the world, who they think desire nothing more than to depopulate the planet and to own everything, so that us rational, well grounded and serious intellectuals become further illuminated in our profound and sacred understanding of how these criminals are so incredibly dangerous as they lurk in our good and wholesome communities masquerading as ordinary people like nurses and construction workers.
The good people, the wise and educated must know how to spot these disgruntled anti-vaxxer terrorists in order for you to be able to protect yourself, your loved ones and especially your vulnerable children from diseases of the body and mind. It is important never to approach these vermin and be sure to shut down any attempts by them to express their ridiculous thoughts and stupid opinions as you will be at risk of becoming covered in their disgusting saliva.
The government urges the vigilant citizens to report any signs of these diseased violators, that so threaten our children and elderly, so that our dedicated Health Security Enforcement Officers can capture and apprehend this terrible threat before it can gather with other radical anti-vaxxer crazies and metastasise into a cancerous mob rampaging in an uncontrolled orgy of destruction, a firestorm, a tsunami pandemic of purifying pestilence reeking chaos, confusion, death, misery and a worldwide calamity, a Black Death the likes of which the world has never seen before. We can’t let the anti-vaxxer fulfil its evil dream.
The righteous person who cares about freedom and liberty must do everything in their power to maintain a just and healthy community, free from disease and malignancy. Our friends in the pharmaceutical vaccine manufacturing industry, who are doing their utmost to save the world, urge members of the public to spit on anti-vaxxers, to beat them to a pulp with iron pipes, to gang rape them, and then kill them in the name of what is right, in the name of humanity, justice and freedom. It is time to express your fear and anger knowing it is the anti-vaxxer gangs who are prolonging and making worse this pandemic crises. It is the anti-vaxxer who has destroyed the economy and stolen your freedoms. We will never get back the things we love and cherish while there are anti-vaxxers hiding amongst our children, in our places of worship and our communities and even in our own homes. On the pain of death shall we save lives!

We are witnessing the total corruption of government. The government is no longer managing the country for the people, it has been gradually taken over by legalized corruption, until now it is legally forcing people to take a vaccine that the government knows is killing and maining the people, all in the name of making money and stealing whatever is left for themselves.

Who would have thought that corruption would so completely take over that the government would end up actively try to murder its citizens? Of course, the USA will always pretend it is superior to the rest of the world when it comes to corruption, and it is: it has legalized corruption everywhere!

Corporations are allowed to bribe politicians, foreign countries can bribe politicians, the medical system is allowed to price gouge their clients, working in cahoots with the insurance companies, politicians – by design – depend on billionaires to fund their campaigns, big pharma is legally allowed to dispense opiods to the people, getting them hooked on pain killers, private companies are allowed to have armies of mercenaries that they rent out to the government, the judicial system does nothing as it recognises that it is ultimately a servant of the government … and the list goes on and on until you get to …. Covid and the imposition of gene therapy on the public, a therapy disguised and marketed as a “vaccine” in order to encourage the dumb people to “trust” it. What the fallout will be from manipulating the genes of millions of people is anybody’s guess: probably the gene therapy victims will have to pay for the “fix” to get their genes back to normal or they will die: that’s government for you, which is why the idea of global government is terrifying.

There is a point at which COVID meets geoengineering.

For decades world governments – led of course by the US military – have been poisoning the atmosphere and everything that relies on the atmosphere for existence.

That cat is almost out of the bag. So what happens when a criminal is about to be exposed? He tries to destroy the evidence.

The people are the evidence, their bodies full of aluminum and other toxic particles raining down. Enter COVID; enter the COVID “vaccine.”

Destroy the evidence.

“What the fallout will be from manipulating the genes of millions of people is anybody’s guess?” 
The results will not show for ten years or more, when they or their children become infertile, and develop diseases that they haven’t a clue where they came from? And the children are born with physical abnormalities… like with Thalidomide, which took ten years to register that it was that causing the malformations:
“In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the use of thalidomide in 46 countries by women who were pregnant or who subsequently became pregnant, resulted in the “biggest man‐made medical disaster ever,” resulting in more than 10,000 children born with a range of severe deformities, such as phocomelia, as well as thousands of miscarriages.”  It was officially banned in 1961…….
More than 60 years after the drug thalidomide caused birth defects in thousands of children, Scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute have solved a mystery that has lingered ever since the dangers of the drug first became apparent: how did the drug produce such severe foetal harm?
The answer, published online August 2018 by the journal Elife, not only helps resolve an issue that has been the subject of scientific curiosity for two generations, but will be critical as pharmaceutical companies develop a promising new generation of anticancer drugs that share a basic chemical architecture with thalidomide, the study authors say.
Building on years of previous research, the researchers found that thalidomide acts by promoting the degradation of an unexpectedly wide range of transcription factors – cell proteins that help switch genes on or off – including one called SALL4. The result is the complete removal of SALL4 from cells.  “As new derivatives are ‘tested’, we’ll be able to ‘explore’ whether they have the same potentially damaging effects as thalidomide….
We know that the therapeutic effect of these drugs is based on their ability to degrade specific proteins. Our findings will help drug developers distinguish between proteins whose degradation is likely to be beneficial and whose may be harmful.”
So.. who will be their guinea pigs this time?

I don’t understand why you would call gorgeous George a Turd? I love his tenacity and assertiveness. Although I would like to disagree with him in person. His grasp of the English language and delivery in a manner that can be understood by the MANY not the few, is second to none. I even liked him when he played the cat in Big Brother, such is his confidence. But I can see how someone with an inferiority complex would have seen this as gross… Although there was no mention of Rula Lenska’s acting? And I loved how he spoke the brutal truth to Barrymore, which caused all the sycophants to feel sorry for him.. and allegedly.. voted for him to win.. my eye? A man who was part of a gang that raped and murdered a young man, and got away with it? I love how he never fails to stand up to the brutality of the is ray lees against the Palestinians. And his Full Address to the Oxford Union 29 Oct 2012 was flawless…The vacant expression on the face of the lad behind George, chewing his fingers says a lot about the small minority for whom George’s words fall on deaf ears, who will continue to be THE PROBLEM… I also recommend the Cambridge University dialogue.. 2015 When George makes his position very clear about Assange, his refusal to debate an Israeli apartheid supporter, Hezbollah, Punch and Judy Politics and Jeremy Corbyn..
IMO George is a man of principal, and is staunchly against apartheid, something foreign to us.. And yes sometimes he does change his mind, as do we all as more facts become available. And I am not in agreement with his opinion about OBL/911 or 7/7.
He is totally fearless, despite being physically attacked by thugs, and verbally abused by ‘lord’ Sugar who showed himself up as the slow witted barrow boy.
I never fail to be impressed by him, but doubt that the Board of Deputies and Friends of Israel will ever allow him to access parliament, ever again regardless of how popular he becomes.. they will do exactly as they did to Jeremy Corbyn…. They are so powerful, they even got George fired from his Talk Radio.. or was that Sugar?
We are not a democracy, we are a hypocrisy, is one of the best lines he’s ever said….

that he must first take what has been established and create a new lexicon with which to promote his ‘concepts’…

thereby redefining what has previously been settled… and reclassifying the obvious… (mass hypnosis, propaganda, punishment, the washing of brains)..

One of the most insightful and well argued dissections of the current collective crazy that I’ve read in some time. Thank you.

Throughout my post-WWII lifetime Western nations led by the United States have subjected the peoples of “our” former colonial possessions to endless mass psychological propaganda operations combined with officially “hidden” death squad violence or overt military intervention. It would appear that we citizens of the West are now reaping the fruits of what oligarchy has learned from decades of such “lab work” in the Third World.

The phrase “new normal” is simply a euphemism for totalitarian rule and “Marshall law.” Watching the police of Western nations daily brutalizing peaceful citizens for simply claiming their right to “protest” against the unscientific illegal lockdown and vaccine mandates should be enough to awaken people from their trance – yet so many continue to appear deeply asleep.

‘they’ (trans-national elitists) have always treated ‘their’ (captured minion) citizens with such contempt and generally enjoy having them slaughtered whenever circumstance permits…. it is merely that the current crop of citizen imbeciles have been quite lucky (and useful)…

It’s claimed there’s evidence that different batches of ‘covid’ protection doses vary in their potency – from saline through to lethal… It should not come as a surprise. After all, it’s an experiment. Logically we expect experiments to be scientific, methodical. Hanging was worked out scientifically, So was the right dosage for lethal injection. Then there’s the Electric Chair – the science of lethal Zaps. Not forgetting the scientifically worked out amount of gas to drop into a chamber full of people…
Scientists will be keeping track of the effectiveness of the different dose potencies. That’s what science is about. So if you want to delete, say, obese people, or asthmatics, by giving them The Special jabs during mass vax campaign – it’ll be easier to blame their poor health… Logical !!!

Sorry this is a double post

Les Online: somewhere in this or the adjacent thread you referred to the “quarantine” camps being constructed in the various Australian states.

This scamdemic is unfolding against a geopolitical backdrop which sends shivers down my spine. Ukraine Taiwan Iran and many more.

These “quarantine” camps are termed “national resilience” camps.

They are not being built for “quarantine” but for the incarceration of “troublesome” elements in the event of a major war. I leave it to your imagination to work out who will end up the occupants of these prisons; Mostly people of Chinese ethnicity, muslims and domestic opposition, various ratbags of all sorts etc. A la World Wars 1 and 2.

The Camps in Australia, built over the past year or so were never, to me, for quarantine purposes.
Authorities often use the term “facilities”, an ominous, scientific sounding term, for places used to incinerate slaughtered ‘diseased’ animals, a term also used in place of abattoirs… Facilities = to facilitate. Sometimes officials use the term meat processing centers for ‘abattoirs’, and jails & Courts are sometimes referred to as processing centres…
Also during the past year or so, Australian state governments have legalised.’medically assisted’ euthanasia. I dont regard the seeming sudden enthusiasm for bestowing such powers on medical doctors as innocent.

Good question. The answer depends on the number of samples, N, and the Standard Deviation between samples, Sigma.

Three instructive fables on the Perils of “Probability”:

  1. An obscenely wealthy man was determined to win the Lottery, so he despatched agents to buy up every ticket, price no object. They bought up a million tickets. Only one solitary ticket holder would not sell. Never mind, the “Probability” of that solitary number winning was a million to one against; but the draw threw it up.
  2. In the U$ election between Hillery Shrillery and Trumpety Trump, mathematicians at Princeton University calculated the “Probability” of a win by Hillery Killery as several thousand to one in favour; but she lost.
  3. Every statistical “Probability” is enmeshed in a larger “Probability” which contains the opposite result.
  4. “If your experiment needs statistics you ought to have made a better experiment” — Ernest Rutherford

The Lottery is not a good example of probability in action simply because the odds are far different from the million to one which represents tickets sold. Most of the time, the winning numbers are outside the parameters of those tickets actually sold. And nobody can win on numbers not ticketed.

This is a myopic article, and the allusion that “the collective immune system has gone into some sort of fail mode” (sic) is outright stupid. As if death were caused by a failure of the immune system.

Analyzing mortality has to take into account a variety of data and phenomena, such as demographics. In that regard, there was a baby boom during WWII, which started in about 1937, as a result of which there are many people in the population at the end of their statistical lifespan, 80 years or so. They’re frail and they are or will be dying. The psychological covidian terror might play a big role. They might have made it through the first year, but seeing that the shit is going on and on might just make them say, fuck it. Better dead than covidian red. Denied healthcare. Suicide. The winter is here, the time of dying. Vax? Why not. It’s a shock to the body, as liable to make people kick the bucket as any of the above.

Here is an interesting interview with Andrew Kaufman. Among other things he says that if an injectee makes it through the six weeks after taking the shit-shot, they’re likely out of the woods regarding the short-term adverse effects. Medium- and long-term effects being, of course, unknown.

https://odysee.com/@AKINA:7/2021-12-16-SC6-Andrew-KAUFMAN-EN-HD4:8

I live a somewhat secluded life and the vast majority of people I meet wouldn’t come anywhere near the shit-shot, but from what I can observe in my girlfriend’s bar, most injectees are fine. Conversely, my ex-wife, a teacher, herself a non-injectee, reports that she is the only one still standing, as everybody else is sick, some people quite a bit.

Can some conclusion be drawn from this? Who knows. It might just well be that people who allow themselves to be injected with the shite are fucked up in the head and getting sick is a self-fulfilling prophecy for them. Their mind is sick, hence so is their body.

As to mortality, https://www.euromomo.eu/graphs-and-maps/ shows nothing unusual. Perhaps a certain drop in mortality compared to the annual average, evidently caused by last year’s slight increase, which, in turn, was caused by a drop in 2019, as demonstrated by Ivor Cummins (https://covidchroniclesmovie.com/faq/).

With the bouleversements the world is experiencing, mortality will likely go up, for numerous reasons. In fact, it’s quite amazing that more people aren’t dying.

There seems to be a Marie Antionette current running through an insouciant and utterly corrupt ruling class – ”let them” the downtrodden masses, ”eat cake”. This has also been true of the US politician Nancy Pelosi, showing her selection of ice-cream during the lockdown to her compliant and arse-licking ‘journalists’.

As the economic crisis begins to bite the massacre of the SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) is becoming manifest and an army of unemployed is now being created with no hope and no future. Mass unemployment will push literally millions into destitution and the virus won’t be any cure for that.

Those who are left with some type of income will be the lucky ones, but the massed ranks of the unemployed will be looking for political solutions. In Germany in the 1930s, street battles between the Nazi SA (Storm Troopers) and the Red Hundreds (Communist Militants) were a regular feature. Even the Social Democrats managed to put together the ‘Reichs Banner’ to protect their meetings.

Moreover, the Nazi’s never got an outright majority in the parliamentary elections, it was only the Reichstag fire and the subsequent Enabling Acts which brought them into power.

So the economic shutdown will be, already is in fact, the next phase of the Great Reset. Thus after the mass jabbing and the covid stampede which is delivering diminishing returns the already emerging mass unemployment will take centre stage.

The masses want jobs not jabs.

Is that why he was ‘a person of interest’ to the Prussian police, and had to do a bunk from Trier in the Rhineland to London and Manchester. He then lived in poverty in Kentish town (a borough in North London) and scratched a living doing journalism and a stipend from his associate F.Engels whose father had business interests in Wuppertal and Manchester. Like Marx, Engels was also a ‘person of interest’ to the Prussian police since both men were involved in Rhineland Separatist movements.

It is always the case that the disparagers of Marx and Marxism see fit to come up with the ridiculous ‘theories’ about issues of which they have little and zero knowledge. I suppose that this is one of the shortcomings of democracy.

His friend Engels helped him financially. Hanging out in Hamstead then going back to your hovel doesn’t mean your wealthy, but I do know Champagne Socialism when I see it. Engles commented about the poor state Marx and his family were living in with broken furniture and layers of dust covering everything. I’ve often wondered if Engles offered Marx a way out of his seemingly impoverished life and into better surrounding only for Marx to refuse. I haven’t read that in any books so I guess we’ll never know.

RE: I suppose that this is one of the shortcomings of democracy.

That’s a cynical ending (for an otherwise great post). Is “democracy” really the problem or the genuine lack of it?

I think that the real reason is that Marx has been disparaged since his own time by both Liberal and Conservative capitalists. When a distorted version Marxism entered the academy in the 1960’s, it was really an anti-marxism masked as Marxism. For example, I have always thought “Cultural Marxism” was an oxymoron. The Right have had a continuous field day (rightly) criticizing it but it is – at best – a distortion of Marxism. How many of these people that think that all of our current problems derive from Marx have actually read any Marx? 50 years ago, when capitalist apologists criticized Marx, they actually took his arguments seriously. The only way to fully understand the NWO bio-security state Great Reset, is from a position that is at least highly critical of the capitalist system. From my understanding, Marx didn’t spend a lot of time discussing socialism, communism or some future ideal society, he spent the overwhelming amount of his efforts to understand capitalism. As we are at some sort of inflection point in the continuous revolutionary evolution in capitalist history, designed and driven by capitalist elites, Marx just might be more relevant than ever.

Karl Marx was the son of an ultra wealthy family. He was married to a Rothschild.

His sole purpose in his writings was to derail the Republican fervor spreading across Europe, which threatened the elite families.

He pitted the lower class against the middle class to divide them, and divert them away from the Aristocracy, the less than one percent, who ruled over all.

“Karl Marx was the son of an ultra wealthy family. He was married to a Rothschild.”

Both of these sentences are lies. The Marx family was not “ultra-wealthy”, Marx came from a middle class family. Marx’s wife Jenny von Westphalen was not a Rothschild.

“His sole purpose in his writings was to derail the Republican fervor spreading across Europe, which threatened the elite families.”

His “sole purpose”? Marx wrote on many subjects: economics, politics, philosophy, political strategy, history, natural science, sociology, mathematics, current events, literature etc. All of this was ultimately tied into a desire to “derail the Republican fervor spreading across Europe”? In reality, none of this was dedicated to derailing any “Republican fervor” but the exact opposite. Marx was an enthusiastic supporter of every revolutionary movement that occurred during his lifetime.

“He pitted the lower class against the middle class to divide them, and divert them away from the Aristocracy, the less than one percent, who ruled over all.”

He “pitted” the working class against the exploiters of the working class: the capitalist class and the landlords. The idea that Marx was running cover for the “Aristocracy” (meaning the feudal nobility) is simply false. If anything Marx supported the industrial capitalists in their struggle against the reactionary refuse of feudalism.

Each of which has demonstrated absolute effectiveness against a large number of viruses, including coronaviruses, in numerous research studies.

I never get any symptoms after exposure to unvaxxed persons.
Only after exposure to “vaxxed” persons.

I’ve experimented with this time & again, and continually get the same results.
The “pandemic of the unvaxxed” in my own experiments, observations & experiences seems rather a “pandemic of the ‘vaxxed'”.

What’s a person to do when observed reality doesn’t match conventional narratives?

History has shown that true Thinkers refuse to ignore their own observations & experiences in favor of mere superstition, or false-belief, or wtf.

I refuse to believe stuff just because some self-imposed “authority” figure tells me to believe it.
I prefer to continually seek-out real truths on my own.

Everyone needs to contract the OmniCon variant, it needs to spread through the whole world and each and every one of us needs to become a case so that we establish herd immunity and not ever need to take the poison fraudulently presented as a vaccine.

” A consensus that the government is doing its damndest to keep us safe.” <= NO SUCH CENSUS EXIST! The consensus inside of the USA governed America is that the government, at all levels international, federal, regional, state, county, state and neighborhood has joined the private commercial interest; the government has become the armed and dangerous strong leg-break guy in the room; the guy that does the dirty work for the private commercial mafias, the governments are partners with. The consensus is the government and commercial interest are one and the same; each operates in secret, each is controlled by the same people, none of those people who control can qualify as American because their behavior and mens res does not fit the definition.

Keeping Americans safe is the furthest thing from the minds of the bureaucrats, elected and appointed [whatevers] that run the governments. Keeping Americans broke, using laws and government contracts to transfer America’s industrial might out of the country and using mandates and requirements and licenses to force governed Americans to buy the stuff the government:public<=> private:corporate partnerships sell <==has been the end game<=since Abe Lincoln was murdered and the sovereign right of the USA to coin money was given by laws those in government passed, to the private ownership of global banking cartels (now doing business as the federal reserve system).

No sir there is no consensus the government is doing its damndest to keep us safe.

There is no relationship any longer between restrictive policies imposed in the name of COVID in a post-vaccine world and science — none whatsoever. None of it makes rational sense and hasn’t for awhile. And, as usual, academia leads the way in incoherence, neurosis, and panic.

Grappling with its worst on-campus Covid-19 surge since the start of the pandemic, Harvard announced Thursday that it will require affiliates to receive Covid-19 booster shots during the spring semester. . . .
More than 270 Harvard affiliates — including 86 undergraduates — have tested positive for the virus in the last week, according to the University’s Covid-19 Testing Dashboard. Harvard’s positivity rate now stands at 0.68 percent, despite 97 percent of students and employees being fully vaccinated. . . .
Other peer institutions have also mandated booster shots amid the Covid surge, including Princeton, Brown, Boston University, and New York University.

About the people in the fotos above, people we never discuss. Like – is “It’s my job” an acceptable explanation ? Do they get satisfaction when the job’s well done ? Are their kids proud of them ?
When we comply are we really just like them ? To the family’s questions at dinner time, do they go into the details of shoving things up people’s noses, or spraying mace in their faces ?
To Mechanistic Science We are machines, so, can the people in the fotos doing things to others simply be following their programming ?

“I’m just doing my job” To put the blame on your employer for your actions.

It’s similar to “He told me to do it” even though you know your actions are wrong, and it’s all part of the training.

These people are trapped by what they see on TV. It’s an alternative universe to their daily slog and they want all that they see on the screen including the drone like celebrity haircut. It’s like a cult they can’t escape.

Yes, definitely no going back now, is there? I too am a negative nelly to many of my friends. They just want to pretend all will go back to normal. I do understand, most of them have kids and to admit to themselves those kids will NEVER see the life we all had, no matter how imperfect that was, is a bridge too far. They won’t go there. They’ll listen to my “negativity” passively, tell me I sure am right, but then they too will go right back to the MSM and that belief that if only everyone would submit all will go back to the way it was.

Waking up is indeed a rollercoaster, but once one has decided to get on that coaster there is no exit. Every once in a while I ask myself if I really could go back, if I really could simply pretend this is all about health, if I really could believe voting is the answer, and if we just get the right “leadership” all would be OK. The answer is always a big fat no. It’s too late for that.

Seen a few articles like that recently. There seems to be a systematic attempt to morph Covid symptoms into those of the common cold. And once you’ve achieved that, well, the Covid saga can go on ad infinitum.

And like cases of the flu during 2020/2021, cases of the actual common cold will likely mysteriously drop, as cases of a cold-like Covid rise.

Which, of course, is completely farcical. But then I suppose when you’re in a hypnotic trance, you believe whatever the hypnotist tells you, however ridiculous that might be. Until he or someone else clicks their fingers and you awaken.

It all makes Svengali look like a mere amateur.

The media assault is becoming more psychosis inducing all the time. Between TV and the feed on my smartphone, I thought I was going mad. The covid mantra is like the zombie wheezes on Walking Dead. It is soul destroyingly BORING and it continues without variation. Meanwhile I log on to my phone and up comes an advert for non-meat meat and I wonder what the fuck is happening. Where did the world go? What happened to reality? Then I logged on to the computer, visited OffG and Moneycircus, and snapped out of it as if awakening from an evil hypnosis. But the sinister mainstream media enchantment is intensifying.

Desmet describes the initial situation, but cannot explain the reason for that.

But this would be the most important question, above all, because the “virus” is only the beginning of the destruction and the problem, how to get out of that mess ist still unsolved.

It’s “dog eat dog” and “every man for himself”. The System flatters itself. And scorns the “wus”….Capitalist social relations: control of land, of food, of everything = control.
Marxists notice profit is produced, ergo, profit must be the objective of the system (of control). That profit is an unintentional effect ? That would mess up their clever understandings.
In the factories, before they were relocated overseas, daily were the complaints about conditions, about lack of control over ones work/time/life. Whenever the kettle boiled over into a “Strike !” a wage rise was agreed, but never a lessening of control…
The enchainment of society by The Economy is an historically transient form of control. Industrialisation was imposed. The Economy’s grip over society ? Orwell’s ‘1984’ depicts a post-Economy society. Power is naked, direct. Society is morphing into ‘1984’.

Oh, good grief. We’re almost two years going on with this nonsense, and while the author wants to pile on the covid cult, he seems to still not know what’s going on.

“Is an authoritarian revolution afoot, a not-so-subtle gambit for a global autocracy built on the bottom lines of Big Pharma and Biotech and ruthlessly enforced by a fascist bio-security state?”

Like, duh. We don’t need no stinking movies to figure that out, just some common sense. Like no, this is not just some kind of naturally occurring capitalist excess. Jesus, we aren’t getting anywhere like this.

“There are many stories in entertainment—from films to graphic novels—that seem to revolve around a common theme: human bodies mediated by technology and eventually enslaved by it”.

The difference between ‘The Terminator’ and ‘Terminator 2’ is revealing. In the first film, the tech is evil and is the enemy; in the sequel the Terminator is explicitly said to be a better father than any human. Someone had obviously had a word…

Meanwhile… it’s not flawless and the event as a whole looks questionable but this talk on Agenda 21 is a mine of useful information:

You’re forgetting, the Terminator 2 droid had to be captured by humans and reprogrammed for it to become part human. If that had failed it would have still been the killing machine it was designed to be. To be told human input won’t be needed in future is the dream of nut jobs and could backfire.

Terminator 3 saw the machines turn on everyone, their masters included.
