Ok, ok, I’ve written about this before. In fact, nearly everything I write these days is a variation on this theme—sheep not seeing the light. It fascinates me. And apparently it fascinates a lot of other people. There have been books written about it, phrases created to describe it, and endless articles questioning this strange phenomenon that has risen out of this Covid/et al muck. Why are there so many people in this world that cannot see it is collapsing and compliance to a totalitarian agenda is the primary reason this is happening?
There is an Answer to this all and has to do with EVIL wich opposit is LIVE.
And is through the ages of human existance a part of it.
Watch all the nine chapters.
Hope this essay by Toby Rogers is of interest and use.
“Pharma is terrible at bioscience but their understanding of human nature is extraordinary - The cartel knows exactly what buttons to push to get you to do what they want.”
I was shocked at a dinner gathering last year when during the course of conversation, the daughter of the host, a mid-twenty something, blurted out how she thought Communism would be a good thing...and she was dead serious. This is the fruit of the US education system.
They don't care because they're ignorant - and I believe that has been the working plan goal for perhaps the past 50 years - Common Core comes to mind too..
I also think these genetic shots are responsible for some of the bizarre incidents of violence by new crazy people we are hearing about, since the experiment started..
In my German 301 class we read a book about how East Germans felt after the wall came down. To my surprise, many twenty-somethings living in Soviet-occupied Germany were frustrated about their new capitalist life. A young woman complained that she was going to represent East Germany on the national swim team, but now she was forced to take a waitress job at minimum wage. In her mind, she was much more of a slave after the reunification. I'm guessing she never criticized the soviet.
It seems like in every country, economic system or ideology there's a dark side. A mid-high ranking commissar in 1970's Russia would have never traded his position with a janitor in LA. A middle-class schoolteacher in the US would have never traded her position with a coal miner in central Russia.
Doesn't it ultimately boil down to freedom? I was booted from four jobs and now face crushing poverty to defend my freedom from the vax. Fortunately, in California I was able to find some employers who don't require the vax (Yes, it's still mandatory in theater circles). In China, this wouldn't have been possible. So then what? What happens when you honestly and legitimately disagree with the State? Not to sound corny, but that's the brilliance of the US Constitution. Sure, the elites have found a zillion ways to skirt the Constitution, but the central principal is Freedom: freedom to disagree and not face retribution.
It's only a matter of time before my parents, your wife, and other sheep are up against a similar brick wall, when their conscience firmly disagrees with the State. Maybe they will have to sign a form agreeing with Biden's "red speech," or agree to support sex change operations for minors in order to keep their job.
This myopic view of, "I'm not a criminal so who cares if letter agencies are screening all my calls," reminds me of the Martin Niemöller, "First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out--Because I was not a socialist."
People don’t realise how fragile our way of life is. I assumed democracy had won, that everyone wanted freedom. I never bothered with politics, makes one feel helpless; stopped watching the news years ago, all lies. The moment our freedom was taken away in every country in lockstep, I started waking up. I can never go back to sleep. I had my daughter just before it all started. This is about her future now.
Meanwhile most people are just getting on with their lives. And I watch on with dread.
I love your comment, “We are taking this away from you because we are a totalitarian government and we want you to feel oppressed.” I think a lot of sheeple believe if the government were descending into Totalitarianism it would be on the news, or 60 minutes would do an expose on it. They don't understand nuance and subtlety, connect the dots or see the big picture as to how all the small removals of freedom add up.
Todd, I to have been extremely curious on how this happens, there seems to be great information on how this happens Mattias Desmet, Joost Merloo, Hannah Arendt but nothing much on why when explained to people they don't see it or are not curious, or come back with this doesn't apply to this situation.
I find Aldous Huxley's knowledge of the human mind and how that relates to totalitarianism amazing some quotes,
“The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. “Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives, that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does.” They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted.” – Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution”
“… the greater part of the population is not very intelligent, dreads responsibility, and desires nothing better than to be told what to do. Provided the rulers do not interfere with its material comforts and its cherished beliefs, it is perfectly happy to let itself be ruled.”
This interview with Mike Wallace is fascinating
Have you seen the Mattias Desmet interview here yet
To me so much of it is tied up in rationalist mechanistic "left brain" thinking, everything needs to be controlled.
If you don't have time to watch the whole Desmet interview watch from about 50 mins he goes into more depth than his book the rationalist mechanistic thinking that produces and allows totalitarianism to flourish.
From my observation the core problem is: sheep type persons do not value freedom in any way. They are actually happy to have their freedom and the responsibility that comes with it taken away, happy to be cared for by the state. Even if they do not agree with individual rules/regulations etc, they deem their own judgement wrong and assume it to be "for the best of society".
It is not so much "I don't give a damn" but "this is surely the best for all of us, you and me simply don't understand it". Which in a way is an even worse attitude of course.
Very thought-provoking article. Daily, I scratch my head (sometimes until it bleeds) in an attempt to understand the mentality of sheeple. Sadly, I've had no epiphanies concerning their passivity and lack of investment in a sane future, both for themselves and e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e else on the planet. For that reason, the Great Awakening doesn't seem too plausible at this point. I think, Todd, that you're onto something: They just don't care. Despite knowing that knowledge is power, these people aren't interested in arming themselves with information. Their self-chosen myopia about all things related to the Great Reset is mind-boggling, but that same apathy is what got us where we are today. It's been a long time in the making, not just the Great Reset but the mentality of learned helplessness and a LACK OF IMAGINATION about how much worse things could get. They've chosen their own personal battles, and the fallout from the Great Reset is not one of the battles they're willing to fight...or even acknowledge.
I've been appreciating this guy's Bitchute channel where he muses--often and well--about sheeple. I think he's spot-on most of the time and, surprisingly, I laugh at some of his commentary because, well...it's either laugh or cry. His vids are a bit rough around the edges, production-wise, but the guy gets an A for his curiosity and inquisitiveness about the covidiots. Called The Kurgan Report. He's a layperson but took it upon himself to read and report on the VAERS data, for instance. His channel: https://www.bitchute.com/channel/B4qaDvddnzK6/
Todd I think the sheep were and will always be sheep. 99% of the population are followers and not leaders. That’s why we have been so easy to suppress for decades. Give the population just enough toys, bells and whistles, to keep them satisfied and you can do whatever else you like.
Part of the programming.
I hope you are wrong but you’re probably right. A former neighbour, a TEACHER, said about some stupid policy, “What can we do? It’s the government.” 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️ No question, no pushback just roll over. I find the more highly educated people tend to be the most compliant and the least interested in opening their minds to a new idea/paradigm. Likely why they do well in school because that is all about compliance and regurgitation.
I agree. Complete apathy unless entertainment or food/Amazon delivery is taken away. Convenience seems to be more important than freedom in the modern mind. I don't bother anymore to convince people what's happening, just try to position myself as best I can.
"… they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
If mass awakenings were part of the human psyche, then Stalinist Russia, Nazi Germany, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, Mao’s China, North Korea, etc., would never have happened. Over and over again the sheep sleep walk into totalitarianism, always believing they are free. I agree with you, there will not be a mass uprising to break the chains of their slavery. There will continue to be a mass bed-in where they snuggle down into their bed of lies and continue to dream their delusional dreams.
Oh, sympathies about your sheep wife , great that you still love her despite it all
