Black is always white for a reason

The characteristic thing about the Ukraine war – and indeed what many of us have noticed in the last two years or so over every new officially engendered panic – is that our State propaganda has moved from putting a particular spin on the facts to flooding the media with the diametric opposite of the facts.

When the law becomes a tool of the State

An English friend in the US has reminded me of the current case of the journalist Graham Phillips, an English citizen journalist who has been reporting from Donbas since 2014, but who has now been put under anti-Russian sanctions by our government. He interviews the wrong people, and they say the wrong things, as far as our official narrative is concerned. This means his bank assets can all be seized, together with any residence he owns in England.

When is a skeptic not a skeptic?

An article in the Daily Skeptic recently was by an Australian who had, before COVID, classed himself as a “skeptic,” contributing to websites pouring scorn on pseudoscience, and so on, as compared to Proper Science. The article expressed his disillusion with the way that science, and in particular medical science, got subverted during the pandemic. A common tale, you’ll agree.

Our collective genocide

I posted a comment under a Daily Mail article on the recent assasination of Ayman al-Zawahiri in a civilian district of Kabul. I wondered when it became legitimate for us and our allies to explode missiles in distant countries with which we are not at war (and incidentally in breach of the 2020 withdrawal agreement). I further asked whether it would therefore also be legitimate for Xi Jinping to take out Joe Biden at the White House because of his regime’s position on Taiwan, or for that matter for Vladimir Putin to hit 10 Downing Street since Boris Johnson (and Liz Truss) are major players in the Ukraine proxy-war.

Not yet the end times? New signs of the times.

Four years ago I was developing the idea – later than some but sooner than many – that in the West we are now living in a propaganda state. The following year I refined my research, in the light of the deceptive messaging impacting my own church, into the Samizdat e-book Seeing through Smoke, and not long afterwards the floodgates of delusion were opened in the form of the COVID lockdown disaster and all that has followed it.

A poke at the Pope

I recently criticised Mattias Desmet for recycling – or actually elaborating for himself – a myth that Jesuits burned Native Americans at the stake in order to convert them. He did this through careless scholarship, but in a popular work that is likely to ensure the myth gets repeated until it becomes established fact.

Big lessons not learned

To my surprise, my pharmacist friend missed the news last week that depression has (if we believe the latest research!) been shown not to be caused by abnormalities in serotonin. So maybe you missed it too. The general press picked up on the implication that SSRIs (selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors) like the famous Prozac have instantly lost their therapeutic rationale. Given how widely they’re prescribed now, that’s big news.

The Passion of Christ as a Mass Formation event

I may have criticised one paragraph of Mattias Desmet’s Psychology of Totalitarianism in my last post, but his overall thesis is compelling and powerful. I find myself wondering if it might help cast light on what, humanly speaking, led to the trial and crucifixion of the Lord Jesus.

The psychology of agnosticism

Mattias Desmet’s The Psychology of Totalitarianism is arguably essential reading in understanding how it is that not only is the narrative running in the “Collective West” a pack of lies, but that a big majority of ordinary people believe the lies so fanatically that they marginalise any objectors.

The strange role of Klaus Schwab

I read another article yesterday from someone a little younger than me, lamenting the loss of a childhood hero, David Attenborough, to globalist technocracy. This sense of betrayal is not uncommon, and is something I’ve both felt and written about myself, having followed his nature programmes and books from as far back as 1959.
