These sheep folk are really nasty. Wow. I got into an argument with a very close friend about all this and by the time it was over I was covered in spittle. Good lord dude, get a grip. Why so much anger? It’s like the Karen syndrome, only everywhere and everyone, crazy beet-red sheep—spitting. It’s like road rage, only in your face, and about something that is nowhere near as personal as someone invading your own little piece of freeway.
There are those who can be dragged kicking and screaming out of their house of cards built on shifting sands and then there are those who will start kicking and screaming as soon as they glimpse a suspicious face outside of the imaginary window of their house of cards. They must be suspicious because they are outside; all of the good people are on the inside, trying their hardest to avert their gaze from the imaginary windows.
Agreed! The defensiveness and sometimes just plain lack of curiosity among so many people to explore the realities of what's happening is perplexing and profoundly discouraging. As some of us go deeper and deeper down the rabbit holes of awakening, we find ourselves feeling farther and farther away from many others--often including friends and loved ones. It's as if we now exist in separate worlds--not only of information and news, but of narratives and realities. Being awake means seeing dangers all around us often invisible to the others, including awareness of the actions of the authorities, leaders, and organizations whose jobs it is to protect us but who instead are engaged in corruption and destruction and covert sacrificing the population on the altars of profits or worse. It's as if we are in a world of unseeing people who like Nero, fiddle while Rome burns. Wake up! Wake up, I want to scream while chatting about the weather or other similarly insignificant topic. But providing them with an unwanted education often ends up with no other outcome then further social division or alienation. And so, I am full and bursting with information that few in my immediate world want to know and yet everyone should. Thank goodness that we can share it with the few (and growing number) who are also awakening! Will it be enough or fast enough to be in time to stop the destruction that may be ahead on our current trajectory???
There's a part of San Diego called Carmel Valley. It's an upper middle-class suburb in California (so homes are $1M to 1.5M). It's full of people who I imagine were in the Honor Society. Doctors, Lawyers, biomedical specialists, military contractors, etc. It's apparently also the affair capitol of the country.
Biden likes to smell children's hair. His son likes to smell a bunch of things. Trudeau wore black face at parties. I shudder to think what Yuval Noah Harari thinks is within a reasonable sphere of morality.
The sheep may have been clean-cut in high school, but they tried to burn down Seattle and Portland. They are encouraging sex change operations for children and explicit sexual booklets in schools. One book, for elementary school level, talks about "fisting." These Honor Society grads seem to be ok with torturing monkeys, and probably humans, to expand our understanding of cyborg transhuman technology.
Every Trump supporter I've met, without exception: Kind, loving, intellectually curious, family-loving, protective, and loyal. The thought leaders are Ivy League grads backed by real-world experience (Bannon, Navarro, Darren Beattie, etc.). Of course, MSM always shows a Trumper at a Walmart parking lot, down on her luck, with a muffin-top, maybe homeless, screaming, "Yur infringin on mah rahts!" I'd still rather be friends with that lady than a careerist, sycophantic, selfish upper middle-class dick with a 700-series BMW in Carmel Valley. That dude voted for Biden.
It is good to rant. Although your Honor Society story is foreign. At the schools I went to, the Honour Soc. was just high marks. Just the facts, ma'am, regurgitated in exams. I had a good memory, but my fellow Honourees, who were all fellows, were all really interesting nerds. They did stuff like astronomy and building boats from scratch. We wrote, illustrated and printed a school newspaper one year with an encouraging teacher. The cool kids thought thinking was stupid. What do I need to read history for when I'm going to be a doctor? Silos were encouraged. Kids were streamed, yes, as much through their background as their talents, and many of my brilliant pals were sent to the trades section, which is really not so bad, although wrenching for me at the time, and I hope they went on to invent great things. The academic stream kids had the nice outfits. They were shallow and superior, and not the least bit academically inclined. They probably all have challenging, lucrative careers now with neither time nor interest in reading between the lines.
You can prove anything with creative stats. Video production is so sophisticated now they can make anyone say anything. Only nerds and nutbars want to nitpick and accuse. The system works.
It is really difficult to introduce new people to the idea that what's on TV might not be true.
My dad was an ad executive with a few famous accounts and a smattering of small ones. It was mostly junk food he was selling, which we didn't eat. He was incredibly talented and did everything, and fond memories of being in recording studios while he laid down background tracks for a potato chip jingle that was on the radio for years come to mind right now. He staged events that were on TV the next night as news. It was all a scam, and he loved the challenge, loved to score, and win, while also being tormented by the hypocracy he was quite aware of.
It certainly gives one a different view, and I'm grateful for that. Imparting learning from that experience to others, though, in relating to the present, isn't something I've been able to do, even with the two brothers I grew up with in the same house. I developed an aversion/allergy to manipulation of any kind, and they are both masters of the art. Love them too, of course, but can't bear the calming tone of voice used in my direction, similar, as said elsewhere, to the one used when talking someone off a ledge who's preparing to jump. Not condescending, exactly, but 'you really should seek professional help' kind of an inflection, though no such thing is said.
Their life would shatter if they could even consider the possibilities I'm suggesting. The pharma industry is too deeply ingrained in our habits and culture to question. It's too big to fail. And the government? They are doing their best to keep us all safe.
The illiberal liberals care nothing for rationality. All that matters is that they feel pleased about themselves. The ability to signal virtue is virtue. "For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away". Matt 24
Yes, which is why I am looking to join an intentional Gulag now. I think we need greater organization.
We have our own press now and this is why the Alex Jones decision is so important. The Shepherds are coming after anyone who has an alternative view - with criminal prosecution. They realize this is the way to stop us.
Reasonable dialogue ended years ago. The only thing the thinking, logical, articulate people get in response to their efforts to educate the deluded, is inarticulate rage.
So right on! And, as their cancers re-emerge or their hearts begins to fail, and they know - we know they really know - in their shallow hearts of hearts, they choose suffer in silence or remorseful angst; the victims of which they really see themselves, refusing to admit their “White Rose Club” authority figure could have been wrong. They’ll die, miserably and alone, defending the cause, virtue signaling and blaming the uneducated, conspiracy-following heathens for destroying their illusory utopia of self-imposed ignorance and false allegiance to “the science”.
