Occult Totalitarianism

Todd Hayen

Pictured: Klaus Schwab (centre left) at the founding meeting of the WEF.

Oc·cult (adjective) [ ə’kʌlt ] 1. supernatural or magic, 2. not understandable, 3. secret, 4. hidden, 5. difficult to see.

All five of these definitions could describe the totalitarianism this article addresses, but I was thinking definitions 4 and 5 were the most accurate…and maybe a bit of 3 considering one of the hallmarks of the massive world effort toward central government is secret due to the fact no one heading this effort will ever admit it is a totalitarian movement, but the effort itself is anything but secret.

It’s true intention is indeed hidden, and maybe, for most, difficult to see. But one of the strangest things about all this is that if you had even a modicum of a thinking brain, it would be very clear what is happening, and what their intention is.

I have to admit before the 9-11 fiasco, I was one of those with a very sleepy brain. So I do have some empathy for people who have spent the majority of their life asleep.

Things are different now; there is nothing more obvious than the efforts of these people to take over the world, and there is no excuse to remain asleep. No kidding.

In the past a totalitarian takeover was anything but hidden. Typically it entailed a big mouth tyrant like Lenin, Stalin, or Hitler to start spouting off how he and his ideological vision were going to make the country he had targeted and everyone in it much, much better off. “Follow me, listen to me, do what I say, hate who I say to hate, believe what I say to believe…”—on and on—very loudly, very pushy.

So how is it now different?

Not much difference really, except maybe in what they call it. They don’t call it a dictatorship, or a fascist state (well, they didn’t use those words exactly back then either). Now they usually call it a democracy, but that is in name only. The “occult” part is demonstrated by never telling people the restrictions they endure and the loss of their freedoms are for the benefit of the state or the ideology, but rather for the benefit of the people—for the community, for each other.

Compliance is created through lies and subterfuge.

Sure, Hitler, Lenin, et al said similar sorts of things at first, and maybe after a while our “leaders” will begin to adopt the same tactics these world renown criminals throughout history did, but I do believe the current path to totalitarian rule is not as obvious and overt as it has been in the past. It is subtler now, more disguised to most—like the boiling frog I have endlessly babbled about.

This is what CJ Hopkins has to say about this modern day version of totalitarian rule; he calls it GlobalCap, check out his amazing book, The Rise of the New Normal Reich:

There wasn’t any doubt about it at that point. GloboCap was done playing grab-ass. They weren’t just putting down a “populist” rebellion. They were going totalitarian on us … or as totalitarian as global capitalism can go. It can’t go full-20th-Century totalitarian and start goose-stepping around in silly military uniforms hailing victory and singing globalist anthems, because (a) it has no ideology, or, rather, its ideology is “reality,” and (b) it has to maintain the simulation of democracy, or at least a semblance thereof. So it is going pathologized-totalitarian on us.”

As Hopkins cites in this quote, this takeover is global and is not nation-centric; it is global-centric. This fact is quite unique in history and is the closest thing to a central power source of a bunch of unelected officials in various global organizations such as the WEF, the WHO, and even the United Nations.

The closest thing to the big mouthed tyrant of days of old is Klaus Schwab of the WEF and he is hardly a Hitler or Stalin type, although he certainly fits the personal, and visual image, of a James Bond villain with his odd sci-fi clothes, strange minions surrounding him, and possessing a rather unnerving accent and speech pattern.

Is he the true leader of the cult that is trying to take over the world?

Or, as some have suggested, is this Grand Poobah Satan himself? (This is where the descriptive word “occult” and its first dictionary definition, “supernatural” may be the most appropriate description of our current totalitarianism.)

The tyrants of lore had competition—that is another distinguishing factor between now and then, and is probably the most compelling reason the current world takeover attempt may be successful—now there is no opposing force other than a handful of ragtag shrews, us. In the past the shrew forces were much more convincing, generally having millions of people engaged with a rather formidable military might.

Who knows what would have happened if the allies did not defeat Hitler in 1945 (check out the fascinating book Fatherland for some entertaining, yet chilling, speculation along those lines). This current “Great Reset” can run its course unhindered until individual people, en masse, wake up and stop it.

The Soviet Union, since the revolution in 1917, was hell bent on converting the rest of the world to Marxism. Focusing on unions worldwide where they believed they had the greatest chance to bring forth a worker’s unification globally.

They had a few successes along the way, but ultimately the world’s love affair with personal wealth and consumerism defeated the Communist’s “worker” ideology, which was equality and fair wages in the workplace—you know: “from each according to his abilities, for each according to his needs.”

Obviously still prominent the world over, violence and military aggression has been the mainstream of imperialism. Although the Soviets were engaged in their fair share of forceful takeover, they relied more on toppling governments and creating regime shifts, which has also been a favourite method of the United States’ CIA.

We all know Hitler’s and the National Socialist’s strategies were primarily militaristic—goose-stepping boots on the ground worked best for them. We are not going to see much of that tactic in this particular takeover (famous last words).

As said before, the takeover will be relatively subtle, although there will be a time, toward the “end game” (or maybe a few contemporary incidents scattered here and there) where dissidents may be killed Stalin-style—covertly and discreetly (the famous “disappearing act,”) or hauled off to concentration camps for “indoctrination” (does the mysterious death of Kary Mullis ring a bell?).

You have to give it them, they have been very clever with this whole virus nonsense—and all the things happening around it. People have no idea who the real enemy is. Their tactics are much more psychological than even political or ideological.

Although we do see the ideological creeping in with these major shifts in morals, family values, “what it means to be a good person,” the Cancel Culture, Critical Race Theory, BLM, transphobia, etc. Don’t fool yourself, that is all part of the agenda to render all of us whacked, dazed, and confused, and it is working.

Obviously I am only scratching the surface here. Sit back and enjoy the ride if you are too old and tired to pick up the pitchfork and take to the streets.

Dr Frankenstein is definitely making a new monster up there on the hill, right under all of our noses, and “we the people” are the only ones who can stop him before the monster stops us, permanently.

This current “Great Reset” can run its course unhindered until individual people, en masse, wake up and stop it.

A) If the Satanic Reset gets implemented, it’s game over for humanity. There will never be any possibility of meaningful resistance. It will be how Orwell described at the end of 1984 – a boot stamping on a human face forever.

B) The notion of an “en masse” awaking is an oxymoron. Rather, it is individuals who wake up to the sickness and insanity of the collective. What has to happen is that the collective stops forcing its shit on individuals. I don’t hold out much hope, but there’s the possibility that if enough of them suffer self-inflicted injury from the jab, there may be some sort of collective learning experience. Also, individuals are becoming less tolerant of collective shit.

The problem with being “less tolerant of collective shit” is that it doesn’t automatically correspond with individuality (i.e. thinking for oneself). For instance, people who post memes ridiculing followers of the “current thing” are simply part of a different collective. The whole meme was designed and pre-packaged; and it was promoted by Elon Musk FFS!

Yeah, except Hitler and Germany had no aspirations of global totalitarianism. And while the “banksters” etc may have tried to “puppeteer” Hitler, as they’ve done with every national political figures, he didn’t sell out or puss out like all the rest.
You people are dreaming. Hitler’s great crime was to actually do something about the disease that was killing the nation of Germany, and that disease DID have global domination as it’s objective.
But you believe the history written by The Destroyer Cult and it’s apologists.
The results of that war are in your face right now.

It only proves that the world is evil, and rewards them that practice it’s principles the most devotedly.

This evil isn’t new at all. It’s as old as hell. Speaking of which, is where Satan is.

Satan is not a person or a man, not even all of them. Satan is the Adversary of God, who is All-Good, All-Knowing, Eternal, Just and Origin of everything.

Satan is not clever, it’s a fool. It really is not clever when it goes against everything good and truth. There is no truth or goodness in Satan, therefore it’s not wise.

Human beings are wise. We were born with wisdom. Our reason and conscience are exactly what’s needed for wisdom. So every newborn child is wiser than Satan.

Known attributes of Satan are: it’s a liar, thief, murderer and evil.

Whatever is in that sphere, belongs to Satan.

Satan is totally separated from God. Hell is the absence of God.

The only way to Hell is to be separated from God. And the only way to Heaven is to be United with God. Simple.

I don’t think they were clever with that virus-tale but rather people didn’t use common sense.
In a case of a real pandemic you don’t advert it, the panic works against you.
In a case of a real lethal pandemic you don’t bring back the might-be-infected but send help and leave them where they are – because you are also just a human and your family members are, too.
In a case of a real pandemic you don’t put the might-be-infected into buses to carry them on hundreds of miles long busy roads till the quarantine as anything can happen, etc.

It was so very visibly faked, but also terrifying because all of the leaders acted together and you could know, whatever was the reason of their huge lie, it was BIG.

By the way they did it with the faked Ebola epidemic, too, if you followed it you must became a bit skeptic. Or even if you just followed the work of Jon Rappoport on all of the faked pandemics and epidemics of the past decades. (His archive is great by the way, very well worth to read back on different pandemics.)

Being born into wealth alone is probably the oldest cult going. All cults operate basically the same… all actions must be for the sake of the ruling class, no subversive behavior is tolerated or else you are excommunicated, cast out into the “uncivilized” world, financial manipulation and blackmail, families often torn apart emotionally by the pressure to maintain such relentless and stultifying demands, the heavy, permeating atmosphere of paranoia and distrust… Honestly, I feel for them. They are no different from any other cult member who feels trapped in an insane system that is truly beneficial to no one.

That would be interesting. If you followed, 5 guards collapsed during the Queen celebration in the terrible heat of 20C – probably the clotshots. I thought a lot about it, I mean if I would be one of the 1% I would try to overbuy the military with better lives, less restrictions, etc, to train good dogs. However it looks that in the US they certainly got the clotshots and my guess after the collapsed guardians that here, too. Maybe to prevent them to turn against the elite when they wake up, to prevent them to being fit enough to fight back.
But after all of this – unless if their brain manipulation works really well – I somehow doubt that they would be so eager to be involved in a martial law, I guess by now everyone lost a relative or friend to the clotshots, also I don’t think they fancy the idea of MAC addresses, controllable “drones” even if they survive the poison necessary to it.

I would be curious how others see this, if you feel like sharing, thank you.

In France, the clotshots were mandatory for just about all govt employment, with the notable exception of the gendarmes & other constabulary.

to add to that – I’m just hypothesising here – in the USA (and who knows where else),
as you imply
there is the potential for the guns of state to be turned against their people (as they have been in France vs Gilets Jaunes),
so weeding out the “vaccine hesitant”, and those whose loyalty cannot be bought,
reduces the risk of mutiny and brings jackbootery closer to possibility.

I also wonder, in my more paranoid moments, how it is that Peter Joseph, a man whose background was always mysterious, advocates technocratic solutions to this terminal crisis of capitalism which are very similar to the WEF’s Great Reset and spends much of his time ranting against Trump, Joe Rogan, Alex Jones or any ‘populist’ who questions the dominant ideology.

Hank, you state that:  It’s the silent majority that know its all crapola.

I really don’t think that the majority of people do know at this stage of the agenda what is really happening. I do think however, that there are more people that are becoming aware of what’s really going as you correctly acknowledge. Nevertheless they are still in a minority.

Even if for arguments sake the “silent majority” are fully aware that “its all crapola” as you point out, they are doing sweet FA about it at this juncture and probably don’t have a clue as to how to deal with the problem from what I have observed up to now.

All this ground has been well covered in previous posts and only a few suggestions of how to deal with the situation have been forthcoming – all the rest has been a repetition of destructive criticisms of the perpetrators with very little constructive ideas or strategy to deal with the situation and prevent the onward march to more repressive measures being taken against the people and ending up in a total surveillance state, social credit and all that’s nasty that goes with it.

I am not sure… even if they woke up just about a part of it – see the comments in connection with global warming and water shortage, compulsory water (smart I guess) meters, DM.
First time it was easy to them to con the people because they wouldn’t believe that such culling is possible or such big lie is possible. But with all of the side effects kicking they surely lost trust and now suspicious in connection with everything they offer or try to force. Besides their power at the first time based on sharing us, a big believer majority and a small clever (sorry) minority, they used the majority to push their restrictions – simple share and rule. But I highly doubt it would work again so well.
Besides they successfully killed their vaccine business like forever, not only this one, all of them, while a lot of us remained totally unvaxxed. They are babbling about shedding – till some level it is true – not so shedding, they are emitting but the unvaxxed, even if feel sick after being together with a crowd of vaxxed, we recover (personal experience). If they wouldn’t need to inject you for the self-assembling nanotech (tagging for eternal slavery or as long as the nanotech works in your body), they would have chosen an easier and less intrusive way.

China tries another way, the ‘passport type’ after locking up and starving to death or almost their people, now if you wish to go to a shop you have to be vaxxed – or you die because you can’t move. (Part of the story that many of them probably got their graphene nanotech vax with the previous flu shots, it maybe just topping up – I don’t know.)

Hi G, are you proposing that the ‘majority’ will now put up some kind of resistance to any further measures that the psychopaths intend to implement because the people have now “lost trust” and have become “suspicious” as you put it. That may well be the case, but the question remains what sort of ‘resistance’ would be effective against psychopaths with vast resources such as repressive state and private means and also including executive intel agencies and assets at their disposal?

I can’t disagree with you here, but I do believe they have been very successful. Keep in mind I use the word “clever”…not the same, in my book, as being “smart”…they are clever because they do know how to pull wool over sheep’s eyes, but not so much because they are of high intelligence, but because the sheep are easy targets.

I do, however, have to disagree with your last comments. Maybe it is the minority that has control of the media (of course) but it is the minority in all authoritarian systems who have the control, and they end up doing a lot of damage.

I also do not agree that people are “waking up fast”…you of course might be right! I hope you are! But I only see evidence that MORE people ARE waking up (in my view, however, not enough, and they are mostly waking up for the wrong reasons)…let’s hope you ARE right though…

Todd, in your reply to Hank I go along with your comment that “MORE people ARE waking up” and they are not “waking up fast” and “mostly for the wrong reasons”.

It might therefore be helpful if you could specify what you think those “wrong reasons” are and possibly how that situation can be rectified, so they do wake up for the ‘right’ reasons – since the sooner they do that, the better and take it from there.

Article by Vladimir Putin ”On the Historical Unity of Russians and Ukrainians“
July 12, 2021

During the recent Direct Line, when I was asked about Russian-Ukrainian relations, I said that Russians and Ukrainians were one people – a single whole. These words were not driven by some short-term considerations or prompted by the current political context. It is what I have said on numerous occasions and what I firmly believe. I therefore feel it necessary to explain my position in detail and share my assessments of today’s situation.

First of all, I would like to emphasize that the wall that has emerged in recent years between Russia and Ukraine, between the parts of what is essentially the same historical and spiritual space, to my mind is our great common misfortune and tragedy. These are, first and foremost, the consequences of our own mistakes made at different periods of time. But these are also the result of deliberate efforts by those forces that have always sought to undermine our unity. The formula they apply has been known from time immemorial – divide and rule. There is nothing new here. Hence the attempts to play on the “national question” and sow discord among people, the overarching goal being to divide and then to pit the parts of a single people against one another.

To have a better understanding of the present and look into the future, we need to turn to history. Certainly, it is impossible to cover in this article all the developments that have taken place over more than a thousand years. But I will focus on the key, pivotal moments that are important for us to remember, both in Russia and Ukraine.

Vladimir Putin’s fascist fetish
The spectre of Franco haunts Ukraine
By David Patrikarakos
July 22, 2022

Like all fascistic ideologies, Putinism is based upon a historical lie. And like all fascist leaders, Vladimir Putin has elevated that lie to a fetish. “On the Historical Unity of Russians and Ukrainians”, published on the Kremlin’s website a year ago this week, is a long, historically illiterate and obdurately tedious piece of writing, but it is instructive in its mendacity. In it, Putin spells out his unshakable belief that “Russians and Ukrainians were one people – a single whole”.

David Patrikarakos:

When Putin looks at Crimea and cities such as Mariupol, Mykolaiv, Kherson and Odesa, he doesn’t see the Black Sea littoral of southern Ukraine but something else entirely. “In the second half of the 18th century,” he wrote, “following the wars with the Ottoman Empire, Russia incorporated Crimea and the lands of the Black Sea region, which became known as Novorossiya.”

When I travelled throughout the occupied East back in 2014, the pro-Kremlin separatists I met were adamant that I refer to the area as Novorossiya. If it wasn’t the Soviet era they were determined to drag their fiefdom back to, it was imperial Russia. Nostalgia-tinged violence in the service of denying Ukrainian sovereignty was the goal.

The following is from a Duginist site:

https://www.geopolitika.ru/en/article/russia-needs-novorossiya
Russia Needs Novorossiya
Nicholas Nicholaides
18.10.2017

Russia needs Novorossiya and Malorossiya – at least the part of Malorossiya that is east of the Dnepr river. These parts are not “ukrainian”, they never were and they never will be! These parts are as genuinely russian as Moscow or St Peterburg but because of a historical mistake – the break-up of the Soviet Union in stead of the modernisation of it – these parts are now outside of mother Russia. . . .

“Satan” could be a metaphor for “Psychopathy”

Those who embrace “Satan”, who are best at utilising it (and hiding it), gain considerable advantage over everyone else
especially since this behaviour is abhorrent to a regular person.

We all have this capacity, and society has developed over millenia so that the Psychopaths who are best in touch with their “inner Satan”, are the ones who get to be in control (whether overtly or covertly).

This is how it’s been for all of human history, and now it’s coming to a head.

I don’t really have any answers to this, other than that the highest authority should require the greatest transparency.
Fat chance of that!
Yet even if this were implemented, psychopathy will still seek the most power possible, for the smallest responsibility.

Thought provoking article Todd, thanks. In my opinion Klaus Schwab is not the “true leader of the cult”. My gut feeling is he is a spokesman; the figurehead for this agenda. I feel there are more powerful figures higher up than Schwab who are the ones really pulling the strings. The same applies with Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, etc as well. Question: who pretty much owns everything? In other words, who are really behind Black Rock and Vanguard?
Yes, I admit it took me a long time to wake up also. My eyes started blinking way back with the invasion of Grenada, but admittedly it was a long time after that before my eyes were fully opened. However, at the risk of sounding hypocritical here, a lot of people in very woke Melbourne frustrate the living crap out of me, and there are days I just want to yell abuse at them. Triple jabbed and they’re still wearing facemasks outside and saying things like “you can’t be too safe, covid is still about”!!
But you’re right, things are different now. The perpetrators, or at least their minions are very open about their plans for “you’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy”. And for eating ze bugz. Or ze fake meat.
After all, Schwab himself apparently wrote a whole book on the subject, although somehow it seems to have been written very quickly considering it’s release date. A bit like how they came up with the convid vaccines so fast.

Nothing happens by accident at the high levels. When it came to introducing the Great Reset they could have chosen anyone. If they wanted it to sound “reasonable” – in a stiff upper lip British way – they could have chosen a toff. But that would have been disastrous. And the notion of getting some street cred prole to intorduce it would be so obviously phony. So they get this – as everyone has noticed – Bond Villain clone speaking the accent that everyone has been trained to think of as evil (via countless Hollywood movies) so it all sounds silly.

And of course Klaus is small fry – relatively speaking. If you can see them, they are not at the top.

That’s why they need to be removed and permanently prevented from holding behind-the-scenes occult power Gezzah, and all effort must be made to prevent them and their minions being replaced by another lot of psychopaths. However, precisely how that can be done is another matter and to my knowledge nobody has yet succeeded in that endeavor in history.

But that does not mean that it is an impossiblity. No matter which wars are being waged, the occult puppet masters are never sorted out and are left unscathed to reap what they have sown (usually the spoils in the form of huge profits etc) and are left to create more problems and more pseudo wars and mayhem which the uninitiated fall for – usually hook, line, and sinker and end up worse off but ready to take more fraud, deception and crap from the perpetrators.

At present there is no true BALANCE of power – the dark forces have tipped the scale in their favour and have got away with it so far. That has to change and it takes people to change that situation for the better, otherwise all is lost. Some pointers have been discussed in previous posts.

Not 65 or 67. All of the news are full with their ‘magic’ numbers, 33, 66 69 and different versions of these.

As about supernatural – while we are fed by the tale of eternal lives as avatars ‘you are your memories’ etc, etc, they themselves very much fear death, very much live in the real world surrounded by real treasures (lands, gold).

Plus if you believe that your enemy is supernatural you give up on fighting before you even would start it.

It is important to realize that GloboCap is “yanking our (collective) chains” as we used to say in my youth – this is ONE GARGANTUAN PSYOP.

Masks, lock downs and vaccines that kill…promoted to save lives.
Racist ideology and policies decreed socially and legally…to combat racism.
A valueless abstract concept, “diversity” causing economic and cultural chaos when implemented as mindless mass immigration…promoted as a moral value.
Health care professionals who follow their ethical imperative and investigate a massive, unprecedented wave of youth undergoing “medical” treatments that can cause irreparable damage…vilified as spreaders of “hate speech”. [See Abigail Shrier “Irreversible Damage”]. Men are women and vice versa, by means of unquestionable woke incantation.
Distant and intricately contrived wars with no connection to the people in whose name they are waged …fantasized as “existential threats” to mythical global democracy.
A relatively small, largely peaceful political demonstration…orchestrated and spun out in a mad media hallucination as an unarmed, attempted coup of the most powerful military in the history of the world, covering up an actual electoral coup [the “Purple Revolution”].
Insane economic destruction of global food production..in a time of inflation and (orchestrated) global supply chain uncertainty
A senile, drugged up real life “Weekend At Bernie’s” president getting lost while shuffling to media podiums to spew incomprehensible word salads misread from teleprompters.
Learning to speak Bidenese
Massive censorship and information control imposed on all media…while political, corporate and celebrity minions mumble incantations about the value of “freedom of speech and democracy”.

Just as The Matrix, 1984, Brave New World and several other dystopian warning novels have been used as a blueprint for action it seems GloboCap has appropriated the story of the Tower of Babel* to further the agenda of the “Great Reset”.  Globocap, seeing themselves as masters of the universe, Yahweh/God/Allah/Kings of Kings/wu wei wielders etc. annoyed by the masses of mere mortals arrogating unto themselves free expression and political choice – like the election of the Orange One, Brexit, the rejection of covid mania and climate mandates by many and so on – decided to go all biblical on our donkeys with a remake of this classic biblical origin myth. We’re even speaking in distinct tongues ! People muttering words like “intersectionalism”, “microaggressions”, “two spirit questioning non-binaries”, “xemselves”…Learning Mandarin would be easier. And you would have an actual language useful for things like, say, communicating rational thoughts and ideas.

* The Tower of Babel [Genesis 11:1–9] is an origin myth meant to explain why the world’s peoples speak different languages. A culturally united human race speaking a single language migrates to the land of Shinar (שִׁנְעָר‎). There they agree to build a city and a tower with its top reaching Heaven itself. Yahweh, apparently not pleased with their hubris, splinters their speech with each individual speaking a separate tongue, so that they can no longer understand each other. Even with the best project management software the enterprise fails, and Yahweh scatters them around the world, thus dissolving the ambitious tiger team. Fined 1,000 burnt oxen, each.

Comprehensive, excellent, and accurate comment of where we’re at. And I could not agree more on the “one gargantuan pysops” remark. Some of us get it, and know that convid is the Trojan Horse to bring in a technocratic dictatorship, however from my own observations selling a street magazine, the majority don’t get it, and still believe that after 2.5 years, there is a “deadly virus” (with all its variants, as reported ad nauseum by the presstitutes)
These people are still wearing masks outside despite being jabbed at least twice or even 3 times. I had a customer on Thursday who had just had her 4th jab.
To end on a positive, while out working, I am meeting people nearly every day who know what is really going on. Complete strangers who know about online digital identity, digital currencies, transhumanism, and creeps like Yuval Harari, and yes, I do get the sense that more are waking up.

Yup that’s it. I’d only add that the covid claptrap was meant, amongst other things, to turn the public conception of illness on its head so that millennia of natural immunity is banished to the fabled “dustbin of history” i.e.. the memory hole. And now everyone is being acclimatised to the notion that nature is unnatural and the synthetic “cure” is the pathway to Truly Scientifically decreed health.

And that also links in with the new definition of illness itself which is no longer given by the way people actually FEEL but is signalled by these little plastic sticks. This is the one bit I really can’t get over. Even now, people look to the little sticks and get upset when they are “declared ill”. And there’s fuck all wrong with them! It’s like one of those hypnotist gigs translated to a global level.

Its like a competition here regarding who can make the best criticism of the opposing forces and their agenda with very few suggestions (if any) concerning what can be done to stop these psychopaths from further screwing humanity with more of the same crap.

A few people posting here have made a few suggestions in the past but more are required to be acted upon if possible and applied at different social levels otherwise nothing will change for the better. At this stage, there is a relative calm before the next phase of this ongoing quiet war starts to kick off and make no mistake about it, there will be more silent weapons deployed that people will have to contend with.

It still surprises me how easily people combine in the same sentence Lenin and Hitler. Regardles of one’s position about each of them, it is just not possible to place both in the same perspective/historical role/legacy. And statements like this: “The Soviet Union, since the revolution in 1917, was hell bent on converting the rest of the world to Marxism” denote a serious ignorance. Before anything, it is an imperative of the fight against capital that it must be global, or it won’t be. If the bureaucratic state of the USSR historicaly took over the control of most of the international struggle of the working class (mostly because of the beligerant oposition of capitalist states), is a contingency that we must all understand and overcome, and avoid in the future. But to confuse a fundamental human need to erradicate any form of exploitation, with the way this fight happened in this or that historical scenario, leads to the abandonement/disregard of such inescapable task.

So you do not believe that Hitler and Lenin were both leaders of countries under at least a form of totalitarian rule?

Maybe the scholars that authored these sources I have are also “all in on it” and are entirely unreliable.

So the abstraction you designate as ‘the Soviet Union’ was some sort of sentient being that experienced feelings such as ‘interest’ etc., and went about enticing the abstraction known as ‘countries’. Just what kind of thinking being was it? A bear?

Also, just what exactly does the process of Marxism conversion entail? Baptism rituals?

And ‘regime shift’. Are regime shifts measurable? Are there regime shift continuums?

Mike Pompeo (Jun 24, 2022):

On the base of the Shevchenko memorial are inscribed these words. They read, “When will Ukraine have its own Washington with fair and just laws? Someday we will.” I believe Ukraine has found it’s Washington in the embodiment of a single man. His name is Volodymyr Zelenskyy. He has led the world at a time of great peril. For centuries, Russia has been revered for its innumerable artists and scientists. But in mere months, Vladimir Putin has turned the world’s perception of his country into one of absolute disgusted and disdain. Russia employed a ballistic missile to murder over 50 civilians at the train station in Kramatorsk. This is butchering. This is nothing less than butchering cowardice to compensate for the failing Russian army. Putin has brought great shame, exodus and poverty to the Russian people. And in the wake of that missile attack, Russia’s homicidal rage in Bucha, its merciless siege of Mariupol and its destruction of food stocks.

The policy toward Ukraine is foundational Putinism; see above: ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer. They don’t even attempt to hide it! I would consider it to be their own business if they were to keep this Blood & Soil fascism within Russia. However, not only have they launched a genocidal war against Ukraine, but they have also infested the West with legions of Putinista sock puppets. This is why I think the “populist rebellion” is effectively dead; and if anything meaningful is going to survive, the movement has to be purged of these fifth columnists.

With regard to Bosi’s claim that “Ukraine does not have internationally recognised sovereign borders”, the 1991 borders were recognised as part of the Budapest Memorandum; and they are in the process of being enforced.

Hannah Arendt coined that expression after watching the trial of Adolf Eichmann, organiser of the German Nazi concentration camps. Eichmann was a party functionary, and a state bureaucrat.

This is a really great example of how “they”, the “Satanists” (or fill in your preferred epithet) exert control.

They aim to reduce everything to a monetary value.

It is very difficult not to play this game,
But one way is to know your boundaries
– what things in your life cannot be had for money.
Your time (beyond a certain amount), your health, your love, trust and respect.
Those are off the top of my head, I’m sure there are lots more.

Time is something that we routinely trade for “gold”, but there is a limit.
The Orwellians have engineered an exchange for personal welfare, with the massed experimentation.
With all the divisiveness of identity politics, plus the surveillance state,
they’re aiming for a world where love, trust etc have reduced value.

Nice try. Even the 6th is not exactly correct, the 7th is sheer manipulation for a psychological advantage.
If you believe that your enemy is supernatural (Satan, alien, AI, black-goo, etc) you give up without fight because you are sure you can’t win. As old trick as hell.

Show me please real proof for even one of it.

While I feel somekind of god in everything even in a bug (the perfection), whenever I try to imagine a god I end up with Stephen King’s Under the Dome (the novel) just because of the basic cruelty of life not because of believing in aliens.

Talking of totalitarianism, albeit on a smaller scale:

Just been reading a book about a lady who was rescued from an authoritarian cult in the 1970s
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Brethren_(Jim_Roberts_group)

The word ‘deprogramming’ figured quite a bit, with respect to post-cult-brainwashing recovery. Maybe there’s a lesson in that for post-totalitarianism recovery. As in ‘deprogramming’ sessions for those for whom cracks have begun to appear in the mindset.

From Graham Linehan:

“So, this week, the Tavistock was closed down after it was found to be “not safe” for children. Doctor David Bell says it amounted to an experiment on children. In 2020, I said this on Newsnight and they treated me like I was David Icke.

I’m actually proud of the interview as I managed to get a huge amount of content into five minutes, which you can see via The State’s brilliant edit of it.

But I still don’t understand why I was subjected to a hostile interview when I was talking about a subject that had the highest stakes imaginable; the well-being of children. It’s all the more perverse when you consider the work Deborah Cohen and Hannah Barnes were doing for Newsnight on the very same subject.”

Yes that hostile interview was one of those moments when cracks appeared and some serious stench started to waft through. “Why” indeed. When a reaction appears that is out of all proportion to the “provocation” it signifies that a very tender area has been touched. Or – if I may venture a bit of (Ickean?) speculation: the invisible forces above (meant in a non-supernatural way!) don’t really care about David Icke. After all, he’s the guy with the lizards from Andromeda. Or something. But Graham Linehan is a popular guy who has made some beloved comedy shows. Now – as the gangster phrase goes: “That is a problem … and every problem has a solution!”

The nice BBC and the nice mainstream media in general is really not so nice. Not at all.

The curious content free viral “carnage” continues:
 
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2022/07/30/amqm-j30.html
 
The first part of this is entirely concerned with the apparently shocking refusal to apply mask mandates. We hear about the Victorian Health minister rejecting the mandates in “a statement that explained nothing” (seriously rich coming from this site!) although this rejection came “after discussion with “industry,” i.e., big business.” (Sinister!)
 
It is “farcical” that mask wearing is an “expectation” (scare quotes in original) “yet not a requirement, with no penalties or consequences for non-compliance”.
 
To the statement “And particularly young people, we’re seeing a really problematic increase in incidents of severe consequences when it comes to young people’s health, but others as well” the WSWS responds:
 
“There is no evidence whatsoever of any adverse mental health effects from being required to wear masks in schools and other indoor areas.”
 
Now isn’t that a hugely revealing statement. Is this an aspect of the famous “Science” we keep hearing about? Yes I myself have worn masks in a work situation because I was instructed to do so. They are unbearable. They cause the wearer to gasp, to feel dizzy etc. They obstruct communication and create a dour atmosphere. Nobody needs any “evidence” for this.
 
No matter. What we get is the dismal copy/paste rhetoric:
 
“Albanese’s comments are cover for the real agenda of the entire political establishment—refusing to enact any basic safety measures that potentially impinge on the accumulation of profit by corporate and finance capital.”
 
“The wearing of masks needs to be mandated! We continue to see increased transmission with increased disruptions over what we already have.”
 
Again and again and again the blasé statement about “transmission” and “infections” and “a huge growth of the virus” and “students and staff getting third and fourth doses of COVID”.What does this refer to? There’s only one thing it can refer to: positive tests but with no reference to the actual well-being of those testing positive.
 
“We continue to have considerable staff and students absent with the virus.”
 
“With the virus” i.e. testing positive. And of course the resulting cancellations come from the demand that those testing positive stay off work, irrespective of their REAL condition. That’s the whole scam!
 
“On July 24, a girl died of COVID-19 ….” i.e. within 28 days of a positive test. Meaning …. what?
 
So there it is over and over: the breathless reporting of this “unfolding tragedy” with the reader being led to believe that the virus is causing all this damage. But the visible effects are caused by “the fight against the virus”. Meanwhile “the virus” itself manifests only through positive tests with no reference whatsoever to actual health.
 
And behind it all, this belligerent insistence that mask wearing be mandatory. Until? Well it’s a “zero tolerance” approach. It will therefore never end!

The most annoying part that Arthur Firstenberg collected several studies made on mask with bacteria. It was published on CrowdJustice, one of the 5G cases, the High Court one, 13 or 16 Aug update, a letter from him with links to the studies.

Among others I can recall a study where they performed appx. 2×1600 surgeries during years, half of them in mask, half of them without masks, there was a slight difference, there were LESS BACTERIAL INFECTION in the mask free group.

And many more. All of the studies disappeared behind it like someone deleted them from the net, and previously they were there, I checked because I wanted to be sure.

They have created a cult – a sort of semi-religious following much like the traditional zealots of yesteryear with baubles and rights of passage but based on scientism because everyone believes a PhD (not). I wrote about it last year and published it this year:
https://austrianpeter.substack.com/p/the-covidian-cult-is-global-453

Here’s a typical example of this malfeasance by Prof Neil Ferguson’s Covid pandemic computer model. (spoiler alert – it’s very technical, but the conclusion is worthy of attention unless this sort of ephemera interests you):

“What follows is only my surmise, but it’s one based on years of experience. I think that Wes was asked to help rescue Neil’s reputation in order to justify Boris’s capitulation to Neil’s apocalyptic prognostications. Neil couldn’t produce any designs so he and Wes (and the team) built some software using 21st century methods that would replicate the software that had produced the “Report 9” outputs.”

“What we have discovered, though, is that that is exactly how it has been used. Graham Medley, head of the SAGE modelling committee and yet another professor, confirmed that SAGE generally models “what we are asked to model”. In other words, the scientists produce what the politicians ask for: they are not providing a range of scenarios along with estimates of which is most likely. Whilst the politicians were reassuring us that they had been ‘following the science’, they never admitted that they were actually directing the science they were following.”

“This admission has damaged the already poor reputation of modellers more than almost anything else over the past two years. We (the professionals) always knew that they weren’t very good, now it seems they were actively complicit in presenting a particular view of the disease and supporting a pre-determined political programme.Why they have prostituted their expertise in this manner is anyone’s guess but sycophancy, greed, lust for fame or just simple hubris are all plausible explanations.”

So this is what lockdowns were based on – nothing better than astrology and crystal ball gazing: https://dailysceptic.org/2022/07/10/its-difficult-to-see-how-anyone-could-be-more-wrong-new-code-review-of-neil-fergusons-amateurish-model/

“Researchers working with London’s Royal Society as part of an effort called Rapid Assistance in Modelling the Pandemic (RAMP) have told Nature that they also *Privately* ran exercises to verify the code in March. After the original Imperial study was posted online, RAMP researchers worked with Ferguson’s team and software firms Microsoft and GitHub to improve the clarity of documentation and *Clean Up The Software For Public Release* on the GitHub website, a central repository where developers (including scientists) share code. As part of this effort, *They Checked* that the *Public* and *Original* code *Reliably Produced The Same Findings From The Same Inputs.*”

…- Note the final sentence, where they are talking about *Two Separate* code bases (The original, and their ‘cleaned up’ version), wherein they *Explicitly* fail to mention the *Results* of the checks performed on *Both* of the code bases, thereby succeeding in creating the *Implicit* assumption that *Both* must have checked out okay…

I don’t understand the ‘debating, discussing’ circus on it. Ferguson had a past, many farmers could tell a sad story about it. It was his 4th – if I recall well – wrong prediction. It was not a mistake, my guess is he was and is paid for wrongly predict things fit to the actual agenda.

>>> This is the Dawning of the Age Of Consequences <<<From Les’s News Letter:

https://les7eb.substack.com/p/ukraine-notes-the-long-proxy-war-67b

“The highly trained-to-NATO standards AFU had numerical superiority, were on their home territory, were trained and prepared for several years and so had control of the terrain and were highly motivated as they were defending their home territory – west of the Donbass. They should not have lost, but they have lost.

“This is a loss for the US, NATO and UK war planners. A Ukraine loss will dwarf failures in Afghanistan. Afghanistan, the United States’ longest war, receives no attention by the Mainstream Media — a media blackout. Parochial affairs and talk back radio from the know nothing class instead of serious analysis.

“Meanwhile, Russian and Chinese specialists study the The West very closely. Their leadership knows more about The West than Western leaders know about them. It was evident to them that US, NATO and UK war planners were planning an attack on Russia after it had became militarily exhausted in quagmire Ukraine, and the Russian economy had collapsed.

“It is The West that is collapsing, and it is more than economic collapse. What is occurring in The West is a loss of belief in the sustaining Myth of the West.”

Right. Afghanistan was the biggest U$ defeat since Vietnam. And like Vietnam, it was the defeat of an advanced Techno-Goliath by a more primitive David.

Ukraine is a different defeat. The defeat not only of the U$A but of the entire EU$A and Anglo 5, in the form of NATzO and all “our irresistible armed might”; defeated this time not by a more primitive David but by superior military technology of a despised Russian Goliath.

You mention Occult once in the literal dummy term, You then quote CJ who actually believes populas uprising aka“populist” rebellion are real and not oligarchy funded.

Seriously.!??

The ask permission from the government to demonstrate movement was run by thoses who had links to the Conservative party aka Establishment. If that is what you call “populist” rebellion.  then it is aimed at numptys. The same numptys who call them selves free with freedom billboards being told where to walk and stand and then getting a slap from the old bill in Trafalgar Square like the criminals there masonic organizers think they are.

The populist leaders (deceivers). Bojo, Nigle, Orban, Trump, Bolsonaro, Giuseppe Conte etc first to lockdown and lockdown the hardest – jabbed the hardest and vac passport the quickest. Trillions given to there pals so much for making the country great. That was your populas leaders sticking it to the oligarchy WHO, WEF and Nato. You need f*cking help.

Bojo and Niyg fruad and Lord Simpleton, Desmode swine on red nose day all told the sheep to get the jab in coordinated effect. Like a reading from the same script.

Intelligent service funded Alt media who kept the people separated with trust the plan Trump is the man tripe & Brexit will make U.K great again and shilling for the politicians in 2015/6-2020 all of sudden with amnesiac forgiveness by the lost and they then pretended to be on the side of people in 2020 – only because it was the next cow cash£$.

Even The Truckers where 19 months late to the party. About as useful as fart in a elevator but they did achieve helping to usher in new banking laws thanks to them which sure helped agenda 30 get closer to Canada soil.

This is the amnesia types sufferers in this so called awake (funeral for the dead) movement going no where.

If this is your CJ and yourself s populas movement populist” rebellion. – You can have it as your very lost and I would suggest seeing a psychotherapist your self.

If the uprising/populist” rebellion is funded by the establishment and your alt media doesn’t hide the fact it is intelligence services connected. Then the populist movement populist” rebellion cant be a movement but more a digression and that is what we have witnessed in the last 7 years+.

“Velocity? of money”. Is this by any chance related to something I noticed after George Brown’s Quantitative Easing spree: the banks received tons of money but I did not notice any productive investment. Perhaps it “Went offshore”, which is another financial term I do not understand.

Is the “velocity” of money circulation through the body politic anything like the velocity of blood circulation through the body individual? Below a certain blood velocity the body dies; or limbs suffer from gangrene and fall off, or are amputated.

Hello NickM: Yes. Exactly. Like blood flow, money has to circulate in the system.

The Qualitative Easing spree selectively pumped-up certain investment sectors of the economy, yet none of this phony money trickled down to economic trade within mainstream markets. The money was held in bond and exchange markets which became completely detached from any reliable measure of Gross National Product (GNP). GNP used to be a measure of industrial production and trade.

“Since this market has its banks outside of the UK and U.S., they are not under the jurisdiction of either country.By 1997, nearly 90% of all international loans were made through this market[2].

“John Christensen, an investigative economist, estimates that this capital that legally belongs to nobody could amount to as high as $50 trillion within these British territories. Not only is this not being taxed, but a significant portion of it has been stolen from sectors of the real economy.

“So how does this affect “formerly” colonised countries?
According to John Christensen, the combined external debts of Sub-Saharan African countries was $177 billion in 2008. However, the wealth that these countries’ elites moved offshore, between 1970-2008, is estimated at $944 billion, 5X their foreign debt. This is not only dirty money, this is also STOLEN money from the resources and productivity of these countries’ economies.
Thus, as Christensen states, “far from being a net debtor to the world, Sub-Saharan Africa is a net creditor” to offshore finance.

“Put in this context, the so-called “backwardness” of Africa is not due to its incapability to produce, but rather that it has been experiencing uninterrupted looting since these regions were first colonised.

“Looted African countries then need to borrow money, which is readily loaned to them at high interest rates. These countries are thus looted twice over, leaving no money to invest in their future, let alone to put food on the table.”

more examples of how a little knowledge can be an embarrassing thing.
A) – Lenin, certainly, was not saying ‘I’ will give you a better country, it was ‘we can make a better country’ working together in workers’ councils (aka ‘soviets’)
B) – Stalin never said ‘we have to remake the world’ – that was Trotsky, Stalin was all about revolution in one country, worry about the rest of the world late. And concerning about the degree to which either Lenin or Trotsky were successful, let’s try to remember they never really had a decent chance – from the time of the Russian revolution, the might USA said (basically) ‘Ok – this is really bad, and we are going to do everything we can to stop this ‘revolution’ against our wonderful capitalist system from happening’ – and so they did – so while the communists were trying to do what they wanted in (may I remind everyone) **their**, the nice peaceful democratic USA was doing everything they could to derail it – and when the USA decides it wants to do something, it devotes a lot of time and money and personnel and the rest to that thing, so defending themselves against the US took a lot of time and resources that, thus, could not be used to seeing what they could do about creating a better society. And we might remember not long after Stalin took over, Hitler took over Germany, and Hitler was pretty pissed with the communists too, and it wasn’t a big secret that he thought it would be a good idea for Germany to create some living space to the east of Germany, pretty clearly indicating the USSR.
C) and about Hitler – Yes, Hitler promised to make Germany economically better which was suffering in the great depression like everyone else, and restore German pride which had been pretty badly smashed with the Versailles treaty – and unlike pretty much every other politician of living memory – he delivered. There weren’t jackboots marching all over Germany, there were happy Germans going on vacation in their prosperous country, cheering Hitler at rallies for making them the most prosperous economy in Europe in a few short years, and also starting to restore their pride by taking back parts of their country that had been illegally taken with the Versailles treaty. Things only started to go south in Germany a couple of years after Churchill started Churchill’s war, but that’s a longer story than we can get into here.
But it’s very interesting to contemplate why, 70 years later, the rulers of the world still want everyone thinking that people like Hitler and Stalin were great monsters, when any ‘eyes and brain open’ perusal of the history of the 20th century clearly shows it was the Americans, as the enforcement arm of the international banking cartel, who were the great monsters of that era, and still are. It wasn’t the USSR going all around the world bombing countries who refused to bow to its demands during that century, or Putin’s Russia – it’s been the USA. It’s not ‘the f***ing commies controlling the WEF/WHO/etc trying to establish this new world order, it’s again the wealthy capitalist leaders, who it’s just ludicrous to identify as ‘lefties’ or ‘commies’ as so many do. The power of propaganda over the last 40-60-100 years is quite awesome to behold.

Leni Riefenstahl’s doc movies show a different image of Nazi Germany. She didn’t stage anything as she did not need to. All was there, ready to be filmed. Hers was merely camera-stylo, no more than that.

So does, i.e., show a different image, the Generalplan Ost along with the Wannseekonferenz document draft entitled Endlösung der Judenfrage.

The crown of German civilisation, that of Luther, Bach, Beethoven, Leibniz, Kant, Holderlin, Goethe, and all the rest of it in large, large numbers was best epitomized by the carnal rampage of the Germans [ all wearing state of the art Zeiss lenses ], when they entered Belarus.
Study this carnal rampage carefully, before you write what you write. Paper is a merciless judge of the ink that falls on it.

Riefenstahl’s films show exactly what I said – the great love the Germans had for their leader. The Nuremberg rallies were designed to show them that Germany would no longer be humiliated by foreign powers, which was a central reason for the love. As for ‘Generalplan Ost’ – well, as I said, the awesome power of American propaganda the last 100 years. You might do some reading of a guy called Arthur Butz, and see where credibility is strongest.

You mean in a few short years, in the middle of sweet month of June, still cheering their geliebte leader, they went for their next vacation a bit further, crossing the border a trifle, heading for Brest, next Smolensk…

I’m not quite sure if I understand your complaint here. “A little knowledge?”

First of all, the only reason why I brought in Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler was to illustrate the typical style of creating a totalitarian regime during their time. Your comments, in my view, do not differ much from the general gist of what I had originally said, only to take another 600 words to say it (which I do not have room for). The article was not about these regimes, and any detail about them was intentionally left out.

None of this would bother me in the least, I appreciate your expansion of the article with your comments, what I AM bothered by is your insistence on insulting me with the opening comment:”more examples of how a little knowledge can be an embarrassing thing.” Why is that necessary? I find this sort of attack more and more common, and more and more disturbing. We should engage in healthy debate, not ad hominem bullshit.

Quoting you: “The Soviet Union, since the revolution in 1917, was hell bent on converting the rest of the world to Marxism.”

This seems like an evidence-free and a-historical assertion. Stalin in fact, did a 180 on the common understanding that the socialist workers’ revolution needed to be international to succeed (the key state was Germany, except that the German Revolution 1918-1923 failed), which is what Lenin and Trotsky believed. He changed the Party’s line to “socialism in one country.” That doesn’t sound like “converting the rest of the world to Marxism.” The only international organ they had available to them was the Comintern, which (while becoming in reality an instrument of Stalin’s foreign policy rather than a hub for international worker’s revolution) only ever served an advisory role internationally. Hard to see how it would be even possible to “convert the rest of the world to Marxism” via the Comintern. Also, I won’t go into it now, but it is straightforward to demonstration Stalin’s totalitarianism, however, the notion that Lenin (and the Bolshevik Party at the time) was a totalitarian is stretch if you have ever studied the Bolshevik Revolution. It is generally believed that Stalin had not consolidated his power, that is, totalitarian power, until 1928, years after Lenin’s death.

This article had little to do with Leninism, Marxism, Stalinism or communism in any kind of detail, I used that reference only to point out the style of achieving these goals. You are right that the Soviet Union gave up their “global conquest” after a time, but in the beginning I do believe they were interested in conversion…even further into time…do you think that the conquest of Cuba, the interest in the Congo, the interest in Egypt’s Aswan Dam and Suez Canal had nothing to do with their interest in those countries coming into their fold? I will not get into argument regarding the subtleties and nuances of Stalin’s vs Lenin’s “intentions”…this article had NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT. Also, regarding totalitarianism, I know there is a difference in totalitarianism, fascism, dictatorship, etc. I am using the term rather loosely. But many sources do identify Stalin’s regime as totalitarian, and although Lenin may not have had the intention of creating a totalitarian regime, I believe eventually it got awfully close.

I am sorry the article did not appeal to you. I attempt to limit the number of words to 1,200 or so and also to use unscholarly language to make the article more accessible. Again, the article was not a treatise on Soviet marxism, nearly everything I said referring to that was a personal informed opinion based on material I have read over the years. It is an opinion, and I stick by that.

Considering your quote from the article, for clarity, I would retract “the rest of the world” and replace with “as much of the world as they could”…

It is all inane and deeply errored external discourse – repetitive highly formulaic, composed of a limited set of motions and cliches genre really on its own – incompatible with reality, set on Russia and Communism by the Brzezinsky aka Empire of evil’ mafia. Someone worked on your collective awareness and succeeded to format/formulate it ”in the right way”.

But life is somewhere else, not with Brzezinsky and his conniving Washington accomplices nor with your mental formulation.

For a year I had a driver in Bahrain [ no public transport there ] many years ago, a poor man from Karnataka. He told me he has a book/books of Lenin, translated into his local language, in his rented-shared room in Manama and he reads them and believes what he reads. He was a Muslim, the way I knew him, his name or kunya, I do not know, was Abu Bakr.
He told me he reads nothing else but the Quran and Lenin.
He tried to discuss Lenin with me when he was driving with me around Manama.

Had a Paki colleague whose highly educated father in Punjab of the 60ties used to order Lenin’s books and read them, along with Sholohov and other Russian writers of the USSR era.
You do not understand that people used to be free to think, read, make choices. And they exercised their freedom. They were attracted to Lenin and USSR, not coerced or converted. People were free in the past.
But not any longer now.
Something DID happen and what happened is very serious and clinically critical. We were all locked, globally, all of use, in Ward No. 6.

I appreciate the response, but it is unclear to me where you are coming from or what points you are trying make. So, I have to guess. So, you knew someone who read Lenin. If you are saying that free inquiry means that to understand Lenin or Marx you should read them directly, then I heartily agree. The vast majority of people who have an opinion on Lenin, Trotsky, the Russian Revolution, or indeed Marx have never read any of the primary sources (maybe quotes out of context), they are getting capitalist propaganda, either hostile (Liberals – including much of the Left) or rabidly hostile (Conservatives, the Right). That is not to say that the Soviets did not produce their own propaganda, but finding reality takes work. Few people make the effort. I suspect that Mr. Hayen does not know much about the reality of the aforementioned.

Interesting side note regarding vaccines: I have heard that there is a very high correlation between sexual dysphoria and autism. Autism, of course has an almost 1 to 1 correlation to the 50+ vaccines that kids get today and has exploded in the last couple generations. The boomer generation had I think maybe 10 vaccines? So, the thinking is that the reason the trans “movement” is so sophisticated and well-funded is that Big Pharma is behind it and they don’t want the connection made to the fact that autism is a vaccine injury and therefore that sexual dysphoria a symptom of that injury. I am not saying that is the sole reason, but a factor.

Many thanks for the vaccine graphs from JAA Pediatrics. Seriously dented my firm belief that Polio was quelled by the March of Dimes.

Scarlet Fever, Measles and Whooping cough interested me because I had the first 2 as a child, and there was a big ward in that Childrens Fever Hospital for Whooping Cough. All 3 have declined equally, but the first 2 did not need a vaccine to do it, and the Measles vaccine has come in only late and with negligible effect.

One of the regular claims about the totalitarian tiptoe (I don’t like Icke but that’s a good phrase) is that once they get a power, they never it give it back (eg the endless renewals of the Patriot Act with bi-partisan support).

It’s curious then that in ‘The Devil Rides Out’ Dennis Wheatley mentions that there’s only one law still existing in the UK against practicing the Occult. It’s a minor 1840s’ statue against fortune-telling. One might have thought that some of the old statutes against sorcery and witchcraft were still technically law but had fallen into disuse – but no. Someone has taken the trouble to repeal them – or they never existed in the first place.

If conceiving of Satan or demons is too much of a hurdle for the materially-minded, see these things more as metaphors. Satan literally means “adversary” and it it to act in opposition to God’s creation (or nature if you prefer). TPTB couldn’t be clearer that that’s exactly what they believe, most obviously in transhumanism.

One example of the undisguised continuing strange beliefs among the elites is druidism. Look up Churchill or HRH in their druid robes. Just a harmless bit of dressing up? Chris Knowles argued recently that the infamous West Memphis Three murder case in the US looks very like a druidic sacrifice (i.e. the ‘bog-men’ found across Europe). The leader of the WM3 is big pals with celebs ranging from Johnny Depp to Peter Jackson and HBO loved them so much they made three films about how innocent they were (despite being found guilty in two trials and one of them having confessed to the murders on multiple occasions).

Of so great a Lord to converse with the Devil”.

Lands up with the Good”.

“In the past the shrew forces were much more convincing, generally having millions of people engaged with a rather formidable military might.”

The thing that differs now is the absolute levels of technology (= power), and the results of concentration of that technology. The cumulative sum of all technology is unprecedented (as it always is), but has now reached a watershed level, where resistance to it is all but futile. This includes weaponry of course, but today primarily embodied in things like reach of surveillance, of all kinds; computing power, networking, storage capacity; and most of all, mass and individual psychology, all focused to power-concentration aims. Thus, oppositional organization can barely occur before being neutralized.

To take a dimension I see missing from most in political discourse: Psychotherapy, with its historical and ongoing excessive focus on parental influences — to the exclusion of peer, institutional (school, medical, etc.), class, and other contextual influences — aims to keep personal understanding of each individual’s shaping forces walled-off from everyone else. Each “client” is in their own bubble, one of an unlimited number of hermetically-sealed and thus powerless (at the mercy of a “therapist”) micro (vs society-wide macro) loops, and thus removing it from politics altogether (except to promote multiculturalism). In fits and starts, groups have formed to fight this, but I believe are no real match for the industry.

Psychotherapy’s focus is on the individual. It is not a form of mass psychology. If it focusses on parental influences it is because the basics of everyone’s relationships with others later, in other institutions and contexts, are grounded in the parent-child relationship

“Psychotherapy’s focus is on the individual. It is not a form of mass psychology.”

True. But that’s not my point.

“If it focusses on parental influences it is because the basics of everyone’s relationships with others later, in other institutions and contexts, are grounded in the parent-child relationship”

It doesn’t merely focus on parents, it obsesses over them — especially, the hard-driving upper- and upper-middle-class ones with attitudes. Among other things, it is thus extremely classist to think that these are truly the only serious influences on nearly every child’s early life. That can only be the case when one’s environment is well-insulated from all the other the evils of the world, beginning with the very hospital in which they were born.

Only in recent decades have any challenges to this monomania finally fought their way to the fore, to take some examples: In the first place, the pre- c.1990 complete ignoring of biology. Regardless of the modern-day excesses of pharm companies today, the bias was once far worse in the other direction. Not long after, we learned of the importance of peer relationships from school age onward; the treating of children as meat, and sometimes experimental meat, in hospitals; the sexual abuse at the hands of Catholic priests, not to mention the normal daily fire-and-brimstone trauma from all kinds of fundamentalists. There are also interactions with armed street gangs, not to mention actual wars for some people; parents with low agency or mental illnesses (and thus far less significant in a child’s life once they start interacting with peers and other families); poor medical, social, and other services in general; the special insults doled out to foster children and adoptees, the list goes on and on…

None of this matters to the “worried well”, who spend big chunks of time and money getting what are in comparison weekly massages, to blow their childhood molehills into mountains, blaming their parents for the madness of life under (to take just one major problem) contemporary capitalism. Trust me, I’ve dealt with dozens of practitioners over decades, as well as several group-therapy settings with others (probably 25-30 total), and so have seen quite a bit of the range of what I’m talking about.

The near-exclusion of influences other than parents — influences that are major, and major for the majority of people — allows the de-politicization of therapy, where one’s political context becomes irrelevant to treatment. Yet, it is all too often directly the politics of the West which cause most problems in the first place. (Please read my other comment here for the context details that I mean here.)

One clarification to my long response here, re “None of this matters to the “worried well” …” :

I don’t mean, at all, to say that there are not people, many people, with significant, genuine parent(s)-created problems. I mean that the near-exclusive emphasis on parents in the psychotherapy industry is way out of proportion to reality.

I should add that that is, itself, a serious political problem, affecting the health of the population, who can end up mentally worse as their reality is repeatedly denied.

I have noticed that those who work for the government at any level forget they are citizens too. They perform their work for the state regardless of that work’s impact on their fellow citizens, they are collaborators and should be dealt with accordingly. Take the license plate folks where I live, they are nothing but tax collectors and should be treated as such. I recently had and altercation with them–they called me back in and told me I did not pay enough taxes the first trip. I said prove it to me that this is a legitimate charge, they said pay or you won’t be able to drive your vehicle. In the real world that is called extortion so how is that not also a form of totalitarianism?

If we made the lives of every government employee such a living hell they would not want to go to work then things will change. If you work for the government you are the enemy. If you work for yourself or anyone else and enforce illegal government mandates like mask wearing you are the enemy. It is not your job as a private citizen, you are not paid to oppress your fellow citizens, refuse to do so or face the consequences.

It’s an illusion. TPTB aren’t gradually taking over the world. It’s just that you (and other percipient spurred into perspicacity) are gradually recognising that TPTB control the world, and have always done so.

‘Occult’ is an apposite term for arcane knowledge that is discoverable, yet hidden (hence ‘in plain sight’). With a fair bit more research you can find out what it is (and Satan too).

Satanism (ritual, etc.) is a religion for the ‘higher up’ minions (comparably credulous). Suffice it to say that Satan is not actually a demon.

What is easier than to comply?
-Certainly if complying makes you ‘feel’ good (for this we have the media, and carrots [grants for the ‘scientists] and sticks [ mandates for the unvaxxed])

Sometimes it’s hard for me to not become a misanthropic. Mankind is weak and mankind is evil.

But then: mankind has been made evil (through carrots and sticks, scholing, the media). So it’s not mankind that is evil, but the system that is evil.

Still, we are all prone to the system. So why can a regular commenter here see through the nonsense and the average human not?

The dumbing down began in the 80s. My school in London closed rather than accept the plan, each year it took no new pupils and got smaller as I progressed through. So it was easy to see the plan shaping, along with all the shit aggressive new TV like Eastenders that started up, then reality shows paved the way for www and the cult of Narcissus to take over.

Like the Industrial revolution, we aren’t going to be able to hold back the tech one, the kids are too embedded, and contemptuous of elders. All we can do is brace for impact.
