Denial and Intolerance: Strange Bedfellows

Todd Hayen

Are we expected to live the “positive” life? A life of denial? Are we expected to ignore what the thousands of doctors, scientists, researchers, are saying about the vaccines, the effects of resulting starvation, immune system shutdown, food supply interruption, rampant inflation, fuel shortages, and global upheaval?

Are we expected to ignore the doomsday predictions of the world’s economists, virologists, vaccinologists, doctors, research scientists, and political analysts? Apparently so.

Why is that? I think most of us have scrutinized this whole situation enough to have some good answers to that question. Let me throw a few more at you. Any disruption or contradiction to the “happy life” will be considered an unwelcome intrusion. It seems this is probably more common in fully developed countries (“fully developed” is a questionable description).

Life is pretty much good in the West (or most of it) if you consider an endless plethora of “things” to acquire, to eat, to look at, to “own” (or now, “rent”). How happy we can be!

To work toward that big house (soon to only be accessible to the elite, but we can always say “to work toward that small condo to rent”)—to get the newest smartphone model when it comes out, to look forward to the yearly raise so we can buy and consume more “things.” We also can get health care when we need it (as most affluent countries, and even less affluent countries, have national health care).

You get the picture.

Who wants to mess with that? Sure, there are a few complaints here and there. Maybe a couple of malcontents will complain about losing more and more freedom as the years go by. And there really isn’t anything called “privacy” anymore, at least the last time I looked there wasn’t.

And what about being “slave to the system,” education designed to indoctrinate, not teach critical thinking, working harder and harder, longer and longer hours to make ends meet (which means being able to afford the important things in life, like a nice house, nice phones, nice cars, nice clothes, fun travel).

Yes, we fool ourselves time and again believing that a good higher education for our kids is a noble, non-materialist goal in life. Really? Considering what “higher education” looks like these days I am not too confident about that way of thinking.

We have it pretty good over here, all things considered. Many of us are brainwashed into believing the only true value in life is material. I know I am. I am just as guilty as the next guy for falling into this, and I also hold on to it with the grip of a snapping turtle (what’s that?).

I think living off the grid is a romantic notion, but I am not sure how comfortable I would be. That’s it, isn’t it? Comfort? Us 21st Century humans are not very thick skinned are we? At least most of us are not, me being one of those. I was thinking the other day while lying in the grass, with my wife’s head on my stomach, looking up through the trees how peaceful I felt.

My soul at least felt peaceful.

My back hurt on the lumpy ground, my wife’s head was digging into my ribs, and a colony of ants were crawling up my leg. I thought about the people of pioneer times, and how tough they must have been to withstand all they had to withstand—with skin literally like leather, they wouldn’t even notice critters crawling on them.

Now, I am not saying all of our troubles are due to our wimpy physical characteristics, but I think this serves as a useful metaphor. We have not only become physical wimps, but intellectual wimps, and even spiritual wimps.

Now, before some of you get your knickers twisted, I’m not speaking of all of you (me, yes, but not all of you reading this). I do believe there are people who have really made an effort to not get pulled into this insane and inhuman way of being— so, more power to you. I admire you, and I personally know a few of you, and thank God you are here. I am working hard to join you.

I will venture to say, though, sheep constitute a majority. This sheep majority would like for us, those of us on the other side of the sheep/shrew fence, to just shut up and close our eyes and “leave well enough alone”—don’t rock the boat please or we will be terribly unhappy.

So, deny it. Easy enough. We shrews seem to believe that even if living seems simple and pleasant now, if we don’t stand up to this tyranny we are experiencing in such wild and wonderful ways, we will end up not very happy indeed. But are we correct in this assumption? Sure, if we are being carried off to concentration camps to be tortured and eventually gassed we won’t be very happy, but that would only happen to those who don’t comply, or to those singled out for whatever reason as not “belonging” and not “desirable.”

How many times have we all heard sheep-types say, “I have nothing to hide, I’ve done nothing wrong, I will not get in trouble,” (after my bank account here in Canada was shut down due to a small donation I made to the trucker’s convoy, I had a few close family members say this to me—implying if I had walked the line and didn’t donate to an obviously subversive group I would not have gotten in trouble…served me right, eh?) Denial.

So why, in my title of this article, have I lumped in intolerance as a bedfellow of denial?

I’m sure you can see how intolerance goes hand in hand with denial. A simple admonishment to “get with the program or else we will all get in trouble” is an initial attempt to get everyone in order. If that doesn’t succeed, intolerance comes into the picture. We clearly see intolerance these days for contrary speech, medical views, and science debate. “Do what the boss says folks!”

As a result everyone on our side of the fence (my apologies to those reading who do not wish to be considered on this “side” of a fence, any fence) becomes a moron, a science denier, unintelligent, not informed, etc. This intolerance is so acute; nearly every tiny nuance of thought that is not 100% in line with the worldview of the sheep paradigm is rejected and ridiculed.

So denial of truth, or of a certain way of thinking, is first. And once that is set, anything that is contrary or threatens that denied reality is intolerated.

Sad thing here is that I see this on the shrew side as well. We seem to be no better in discussing issues where we disagree than the worst of the sheep (again, I am guilty of this myself at times, and it isn’t everyone who is intolerant).

There seems to be no tolerance here as well.

When confronted with a differing view of something we hold as truth, we often do not reply with a, “hey brother (or sister) I don’t quite agree with what you just said (or wrote), how about…” or, “hey brother (or sister) I don’t think you have your facts straight there, have you not heard…” Instead it is a “hey you idiot, you don’t know what you are talking about!” or some other ad hominem insult that has nothing to do with the statement being discussed.

This troubles me quite a bit, and I think it is an absolute necessity that all of us who are going to be the ones left standing after the smoke of this global insanity lifts have the ability to discuss the issues at hand with civility and courtesy. Yes, some people do not know as much as others, but rather than attack their character and integrity as human beings, be there to support and educate.

And more often than not, the disagreement is in interpretation, and viewpoint. These are things that can indeed be debated, but without attacking the individual stating the contrary view. This is intolerance, and it is the very thing that we accuse those who are buying into this mainstream narrative.

Let’s all step up to the plate and treat our fellow shrew brothers and sisters with respect and consideration.

I think we all have a sense of what’s wrong and how we could go about fixing it but we run up against the wall that change is only possible within the context of the status quo. When the status quo becomes the problem it presents us with an impossible problem and so people react by switching off or building fantasy universes. Each human can contribute only so much productive effort. In the past actual work was needed because practically all tasks were highly labor intensive. As society developed we didn’t have to work anything like as much to provide the basic necessities of life but despite not needing anything like as much effort we seemed to be working more and more. We’re told that this is to ‘maintain our standard of living’ but really doesn’t survive scrutiny; we’re actually working our tails off to keep a large parasitic class… Read more »

From the Bhagavad Gita, which names bravery as the first holy virtue:

“Our fear is not of the strength of others, but always of our weaknesses. Our ignorance is our greatest weakness. Ignorance is never bliss. Ignorance is always at the root of fear. Fear is always at the root of our ill-conceived action.”

“Falsehood, however convenient, alienates us from God.”

Gandhi [spare me of criticisms for the character, please], citing it, says: “Courage is the first requirement of spirituality. Cowards can never be moral.”

And I would add that you can only be genuinely brave if you are willing to know the aspects of reality that are more terrifying (like conspiracy theories).

Those who turn their eyes away from reality, out of fear, or apathy, are destroying themselves, spiritually and mentally. And they will have a rude awakening.

That´s another reason why we have to reach them.

Timely article Todd. Because I deal direct with the public every day, I have to take “time out” on a regular basis, get right out of Melbourne, and connect with nature. Otherwise I’d go nuts. I believe a major reason why so many have fallen for the convid pysops is a complete lack of spirituality in their lives. By this, I mean spiritual as opposed to religion. I hear what you say about intolerance. Yesterday had a customer who started talking about the lockdowns here in Melbourne in the last 2 years. He’s been jabbed 3 times and was wearing a facemask outside. He started praising Daniel Andrews, the Premier of Victoria, and said regards the lockdowns: “what could he have done, we didn’t have the vaccines at the time, he did the right thing”. This customer went on to say Daniel Andrews had literally saved the State and they… Read more »

well, but it’s almost a Herculean task not to get angry, after almost 3 years of being called insane, criminal, deluded, “anti-science”, etc etc. So, yes, one *should* be tolerant, but it’s goddamn hard. And you’re the one who’s stood out on the street selling your papers through the whole thing, so your opinion should not have been dismissed as “wrong” flat out. Anyway. Calmness and tolerance–easier said than done, and probably overall easier for the one who’s standing behind the benevolent authoritarian “consensus.”

not to detract from the article, with which I agree, mostly, because divide and conquer always has been a big part of the playbook of TPTB.

I did meet another couple of wide awake people today while selling the mag, which is always a positive and is one of the things that keeps me going. A few days ago I met 6 people on the same day at the same location who knew it was all lies and that there was never any pandemic. But what really kills me is seeing little 4 or 5 year old children wearing facemasks. Yes, I’ve tried to speak calmly and asked why their 4-5 year old child was wearing a mask, only to be ignored, or told by the parent to keep my mouth shut and mind my own business, or have the parent say: “oh, she’s got a cold, I don’t want her passing it on to anyone else”. That’s actually become a trend in Melbourne with adults also. They say they’re wearing a mask outside because they… Read more »

I take your point, but I sure hope your wife’s head was still attached to her body. I normally wouldn’t leap to such a macabre doubt, but you didn’t specify.

And the arrival of the ants piqued my concern.  😉

‘Social distancing’ has been long in the making, as old as dog-eat-dog practices of the free-for-all market, and the standardized product of alienation among atomized units in industrial machinery and bureaucracy. The advance of anti-society has moved from the me culture of narcissism to the fuck-you kulture of the digital (c)age’s echo chambers. Human community largely exists in name only now as virtual reality and the Metaverse and all things simulated and synthetic are prepared to swallow the remnants of what enabled our species’ evolution. The atrophy of civility, substantive not superficial, is but one symptom of the systemic abuse to which we have been subjected by the psychopathy of profit and power.

….Italians are less prepared to face the threat of mosquitoes potentially carrying the West Nile virus (WNV), a disease indigenous to Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Australia which has recently made a move to Europe and North America.

….

Since 1999, the virus, which causes the so-called West Nile fever, has travelled far from areas where it has been traditionally prevalent. It’s now found in every continent on the planet except Antarctica, and in the US is the leading cause of mosquito-borne diseases.

And just to make sure you get the message, this magazine’s twitter thread dumps this hint:

Another day, another scary virus rears its ugly head.

{We have it pretty good over here, all things considered.

I can assure you once a crisis strikes (terminal illness and or death) how fast people realize what’s truly important in life. You can have the biggest bank account – the biggest private jet and number of houses – but when death comes knocking – there’s no escaping it and nothing else matters! I would bet good money those of us who live in reality are the same ones who grew up with nothing and learned to appreciate everything and take NOTHING for granted I think the time is quickly approaching where people will have less and less and begin to realize that as well.

What’s with the “brother, or sister” Monty Python nonsense ? All human beings are MEN, all of them, all 8 billion of HU-MAN beings, within there are two reproduction sexes, the male with the XY chromosome and the female with the XX chromosome. You’re following the Germaine Greer (The Female Eunuch) and her ilk in the sixties, “dividing” the sexes, dividing families as written about by Karl Marx in his Manifesto. So post-MAN, mail-MAN, horse-MAN etc. are all correct

“Brother, sister“ is what Masons call each other. It’s a “brotherhood” or “family” of shills. Ie; controlled opposition. They cartel signal with specific language, symbols, Gematria and/or hand signals. Marx and Engels were also members.

“Brother” or “sister” is also what Primitive Baptists call one another. My great grandfather called his daughter (my grandmother) “sister.” And he was neither a Mason nor a Marxist.

Baptists are also part of the BROTHERHOOD. All organized religions were created as a mass mind control tool by the one cryptocracy that’s been ruling for thousands of years. So it’s no wonder they use the same terminology, within the same cult programming; diminishing mankind, whilst eliciting subservience to invisible, unproven “gods”.

It’s the same technique, stemming from the SAME CULT.

Nonetheless, the female is the beginning of all of life – check out the biology.

If you want to put it that way…

But the bone of contention was the myth that woman is derived from and/or subsumed under man. This notion is embedded in all patriarchal religions and traditions to this day (Adam’s rib; Athena birthed out of Zeus’ head, etc).

They’re defensive myths.

But I think a key point (one of them at any rate) in Todd’s article is that we need to recognize and treat with respect those of us who are “on the same side of the fence” regarding the need to show resistance to the conforming order that so many, so many accept. They are our sisters and brothers — our fellow shrews if you prefer (ugh! not a shrew fan, sorry!) –even when we disagree with their views on other points, on how best to interpret reality, on what to tackle first, etc. (Example: the many quarrels over whether there is a virus causing an illness known as Covid — or if there are viruses at all!)

This article is so well said. It has been a continual mystery to me of how when I just wish to discuss the present issues with friends and family there is an instant divide. There does not seem to be a respect for views that contradict my friends and family’s views. For years I have enjoyed debate and discussion with people in my life. Suddenly there is no tolerance for discussion. I am told time and again that I am not following the people who really “know”…I believe I am being careful in the experts I listen to, but even if I was not, I don’t think it is anyone’s place to tell me who to follow…instead there should be respectful discussion, discussion, discussion!

I think these ‘sheep obsessed’ folk are the lower grade red-pilled.

They aren’t going with the flock, but they’re not sure where else to go, so rather than research WTF is going on & why, they are drawn instead into psychoanalysis of the sheep mentality (possibly self-congratulatory).

Most of the Off-Guardian articles are also focussed on aspects of the Covid psyop, instead of analysing the reasons behind it.

Well, CERN is not what it’s purported to be.
Just as Apollo comes from Apollyon, so Shiva/Kali (CERN’s mascots) comes from the same thing, i.e. ‘the destroyer’.

As for chemtrails, there’s very little evidence either way, however, the Earth’s magnetosphere is being ever further disrupted, so it is plausible that they are intended to ameliorate greater radiation slipping through (and causing more severe flu).

It has been suggested that Ekpyrosis is the alternate to Kataklysmos, but it’s dubious that knowledge of the nature of the 2nd to last ‘event’ (24k years ago) has been preserved.

Injections- all of them. Food- most of it. Peer pressure- a lot. “The Impact of Science on Society” Lord Bert was a major change agent for our owners. The plans have been published. Brzinski(ho,ho),Attali, loads of them and they weren’t just writing a wish list to Santa. The Scientific Dictatorship minutely designed to last.

Most people have fallen into the trap of assuming no discussion is possible unless “expert” opinion is cited. As it so happens, there are people in this world who form their own ideas and opinions without any help from any particular expert. True, in drawing upon a lifetime’s worth of information, facts, other opinions and ideas, even they are citing “experts” if only indirectly. I think that’s always been understood: your opinion is an amalgam of countless ideas you’ve absorbed. Nowadays, however, the dynamic has changed dramatically to where it’s no longer sufficient to render an opinion without specifically citing where you “heard it.” I absolutely do not think this new dynamic came about purely by chance. I think for years the groundwork has been laid; and that it’s part of our obsession with Science. Ironically, though, our preoccupation with Science very conveniently ignores the essence of Science: someone, somewhere,… Read more »

Around the year 2009 a whole bunch of websites appeared in the ‘vaccine’ space. These were the likes of science blogs, skeptical raptor and science based medicine. They spread the scientism ideology and many of their writers moved into other ‘media’. Jake Crosby wrote an article about them in 2009: “Science”Blogs: Seed Media’s Aggressive WeedIt is self-styled as the largest conversation about science on the web. Boasting 69 blogs, along with 114,506 posts and 1,742,506 comments that are ever increasing, there is no question “Science”Blogs are highly trafficked and frequently updated. Their slogan brags, “Where the world discusses science,” and crowed a record of 2.2 million unique visitors in the month of May alone. There is now a German “Science”Blogs as well as a “Science”Blogs Brazil written in Portuguese. Their owner, Seed Media Group, likens itself to Rolling Stone during the magazine’s “early years” which according to Seed was “when… Read more »

You can think that you can change what people think! “A mind that’s changed against its will, is of the same opinion still”. People will mask or identify adaptively in response to conditions they cant or wont change. But the mask is added to or overlaid upon a core set of beliefs that run unconsciously unless brought to awareness. I expect you mean similar to my own sense but word it differently. Feeling as a verb is very different from feelings as emotionally reactive states. A lot of thinking is set the task of managing conflicts that are the feelings or results of conflicted thinking. A spiritual teacher once said to his students: You come to me with demands that I make you feel better, but the only way to feel better is to FEEL better. In this use of the felt qualities of our living is presence. Much of… Read more »

I don’t know about ‘respect and consideration’ – how do you respect someone who’s accepted fairly obvious lies about what is going on in their country, to the great detriment of said country?? They’re some combination of stupid, gullible, gutless, and there doesn’t seem to be any reason to think they’re likely to change anytime soon, esp if they’re the agressive-against-those-the-rulers-say-be-aggressive-against types, yapping about how you should be jailed or run out of the country or denied health care etc for your refusal to bend the knee to the latest idiocy. I could maybe find ‘forgive’ somewhere down the line, if they ever owned up to what fools they had been, their role in the immense damage they and their fellow sheep people have allowed to be caused to the country – but how they would ever regain ‘respect’ is not very clear.

Although the ‘spatial’ commons – such as the common land – are what most people think of as the commons, they are by no means the only form. It is possible to conceive of social, civil, cultural and intellectual (or educational) commons as well. All are threatened by erosion, enclosure, and conversion into sources of rental income. There has always been tension between ‘the commons’ – i,e, that which is public and open to everyone to use – To adopt Marx’s terminology, the commons primarily have a ‘use-value’ not an ‘exchange-value’. But things have turned around. The Commons by any definition cannot be a commodity that can be bought, sold or commercialised. The elevation of the use-value, over the exchanges-valued is integral to the commons. The ongoing financialisation and privatisation of capitalism has led to the rise of the rentier class of banks, landowners, brokers, speculators, Hedge Funds, Private capital,… Read more »

‘There seems to be no tolerance here as well.’ Tolerance for what? – I think the tolerance paradox of Popper applies (or that if you tolerate this than your children will be next) In NL, they recently have invited people older than 60, those who live in old peoples homes and people with Down Sydrome to receive their next shot of poison (aka booster). See what that does to excess mortality: see graph in https://www.cbs.nl/nl-nl/faq/corona/medisch/hoeveel-sterfgevallen-zijn-er-per-week-. The news is not giving a peep about excess mortality. Our National statistics department just mentions it in passing (the excess mortality in July was… , without any explanation other than that a number of them died from [their word] covid). I find this quite intolerable, yet at the same time there is nothing I can do. This leads to stress.

The reason we got it so good here in the west is because we are living way beyond our means. We live in luxury at the expense of someone in the third world and the natural world. So there’s that. Which is completely unsustainable. We’re about to find out how unsustainable big time. Secondly, there are some of us who don’t think everything is peachy. I live in Australia but I refuse to prostitute myself to a planet fucking corporation (or even a mildly rapey one) for five days a week just so I can have two days off to myself. That’s not a life. So nah the current system is shit and needs to change. I am one of those thick skinned people though. I’ll go live in the bush before I have to put up with the likes of this society.

An example of ad hominem, shrewishness seems to be the recent Substack comment by the double-jabbed Germ Theorist Steve Kirsch that Tom Cowan, luminary of Terrain Theory. got deregistered as an MD in California. (Boo, hiss to Cowan)

As if this says anything about Tom Cowan’s stance on pleomorphism ,etc.

Myself, I tend to believe the statement that anyone, like Kirsch, who says that Sars-Cov-2 not only exists but has been isolated and that viruses themselves exist is in fact playing into the hands of One Pathogen-One-Disease-One Drug Rockefeller medicine.

Yes. People need to know that there are dozens of liars, controlled opposition and shills who shout down the truth. They have been setting up shop for years, some for decades, to appear as if they are freedom advocates.

Their entire purpose is to back up the contagion myth. Without the contagion myth, there can be no control of societies, no restriction of movement, no forced medical treatment protocols, no fake tests, no quarantines, no masks, and no mass poisoning by injection.

The mass hypnosis only works through generating mass fear and hysteria.

What a refreshing article… I’m glad I persevered.

We will never overcome this nonsense, without first winning over those who have been blinded by the bullshit. And while there are many who have begun to realise for themselves, there is a monumental task ahead of us.

Back someone up into a corner, with facts, statistics and randomised control trials and, after our fleeting flush of victory, we’ll create an even more entrenched, determined sheep that clings to conformity and the safety in numbers.

We may well win arguments by picking holes, and citing facts that our opponent is unaware of… but that rarely does it. We need to ask questions, get them to ask themselves questions, and rediscover that wonderful quality of curiosity.

The mind, as they say, is like a parachute… only of any use when it’s open.

Imagine a combination of Idiocracy and They Live, but you are an ‘alien’ who has only just realised you are an alien. Because you have for so long believed yourself to be just like the idiots, you feel these are ‘your people’. Therefore you are convinced, that with the right ‘deprogramming’ they can be elevated to become just as good as yourself.

Sorry mate. You’re an alien, a sapient. You need to stop associating with idiots, or thinking they can be saved from idiocy. You need to re-integrate with your own kind – sapients.

Could well be similar. However, being told you’re superior (& coming to believe it) isn’t quite the same as being superior (& coming to realise it).

People have been indoctrinated to believe that everyone is the same when it comes to sapience.

So, it can take a little while for people to realise that the insufficiently sapient cannot be saved through ‘deprogramming’.

There are many unjabbed who believe TPTB are to be defeated, and that the best means of achieving this is to ‘wake up’ the jabbed.

Fortunately, most of the unjabbed have enough sapience to realise this is not going to happen.

The elite have weaponised the case against materialism/consumerism so it’s a line to pursue with great caution.

I don’t see Jeffrey Bezos giving up his material goods. They want people living in pods owning nothing and eating mashed grasshopper while not realising they’ve been expropriated and immiserated but believing they’re more in tune with something mystical and saving the planet. It’s an updated version of Soviet workers living in crap but loving it because they’d been deluded into believing they were building a workers’ paradise but tomorrow’s jam never came for most.

Concerns about materialism feel more suited to the 1980s or even the 1950s than now. Does anyone “keep up with the Joneses” these days? The one exception is the obsession with the latest gadgets – which of course is fostered by the very people telling everyone the simple life is better.

The slogan for the soviet push was workers of the world, unite. It was an attempt at pitting people against their governments.
Flash forward to today and we keep seeing calls for the world to unite in protests. There were even calls for an organized protest to support Danish farmers…in Canada. They also attempted to make the “trucker convoy” a thing in every country. Protesters of the world, unite.
Times have changed, but the tactics have not.

“We have it pretty good over here, all things considered.” The past 40 years of neoliberalism (finance capitalism) haven’t been a very comfortable existence for the global population. This is why the same people who enforced this economic policy upon the world should not be trusted with any kind of reset. World poverty is viewed as a solution, not a problem. The World Bank and IMF think of poverty as low-priced labor, creating a competitive advantage for countries that produce labor-intensive goods. So poverty and austerity is an economic solution that’s built into their models. ~ Michael Hudson Neoliberalism impoverishes. [It] is a financial class war against labor, against industry, against governments.

I have a dislike of shrews a type of insectivore. “Shrews have long pointed noses, dense velvety fur, and black beady eyes. They have five toes on all feet while most mice have only four toes on their front feet. Shrews also carry an odor so vile that it keeps most mammalian predators from eating them. Also heard that the term may describe a woman who is argumentative, nagging, and ill tempered. Ahem.
