Mass psychosis

Front Page Magazine posted an entry last week from a website that was new to me: Academy of Ideas. They seem to lean Nietzschean-Jungian-libertarian. (Hm!) I found two articles-videos of interest.

Is a Mass Psychosis the Greatest Threat to Humanity?

The Manufacturing of a Mass Psychosis – Can Sanity Return to an Insane World?”

Here are two quotes from these articles.

“The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduce them. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim.”

Gustave LeBon, The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind

“Modern technology teaches man to take for granted the world he is looking at; he takes no time to retreat and reflect. Technology lures him on, dropping him into its wheels and movements. No rest, no meditation, no reflection, no conversation – the senses are continually overloaded with stimuli. [Man] doesn’t learn to question his world anymore; the screen offers him answers-ready-made.”

Joost Meerloo, The Rape of the Mind

Stew Peters interviews Dr. Jane Ruby on a real scientific phenomenon, magnetofection. “Magnetism INTENTIONALLY Added to ‘Vaccine’ to Force mRNA Through Entire Body” It is absolutely real. I have links to the scientific papers on PubMed. They are lying to you.

Interesting, perceptive comparison seen on Citizen Free Press:

In Front Page Magazine, from philosophy professor Jason Hill, “The Authoritarians”:

“When Will the CoVID Revolt Come?” by Roger Kimball:

The Road to Totalitarianism” by CJ Hopkins. “The time for people to “wake up” is over. At this point, you either join the fight to preserve what is left of those rights, and that sovereignty, or you surrender to the “New Normal,” to global-capitalist totalitarianism. I couldn’t care less what you believe about the virus, or its mutant variants, or the experimental “vaccines.” This isn’t an abstract argument over “the science.” It is a fight … a political, ideological fight. On one side is democracy, on the other is totalitarianism. Pick a [freaking] side, and live with it.” Well, not exactly. Democracy can be totalitarian. I would have said constitutional, classically liberal, democratic republicanism.

“Two Americas, Two Different Belief Systems”

“How Science Becomes Religion”

“With CoVID, There Are No More Individual Rights”

Brandon Smith is always smart. “Why Are Globalists And Governments So Desperate For 100% Vaccination Rates?” In short, to hide the lethal effects of the “vaccines” that will not be occurring in the control group, the non-“vaccinated”.

Dems and Media Dehumanize the Unvaccinated

“I Don’t Want to Lose You” A maudlin article from a leftist website about how to stage an intervention to “save” the life of your crazy white supremacist MAGA deplorable family member – although why would you want to?

From our friend Nitzakhon, “The Elois’ Smile”. You may remember the Elois from H. G. Wells’s “The Time Machine”. Nitzakhon discourses upon the dangerous “Teflon intellect”, and provides three rules for understanding totalitarian society:

  • Rule 1: It doesn’t matter what’s true, it’s what you can get people to believe.
  • Rule 2: If you control the information flow, you control what people believe.
  • Rule 3: If your information manipulates emotions to make people believe they are good and virtuous for believing what you want, no facts or reasoning will undo those beliefs.

From the same author, a sort of sequel. “An Observation or Two on Jab Mandates”:

“NIH Director Collins: Businesses Should Require Vaccine Credentials for Customers”

“CNN Warns Americans: ‘It’s About to Get Much Harder to Not Be Vaccinated’”

“Vaccinated Only” should be the new policy for New York state, per Cuomo:

“Nullifying Nuremberg” The author includes the full Nuremberg Code regarding medical experimentation, which MUST include informed consent. Copy it from this article and save it; print it out. Point one is the core: “The voluntary consent of the human subject is essential. This means that the person involved should have the legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved, as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that, before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject, there should be made known to him the effects upon his health or person, which may come from his participation in the experiment.”

“The Ten Stages of Genocide”: 1 – classification; 2 – symbolization; 3 – discrimination; 4 – dehumanization; 5 – organization; 6 – polarization; 7 – preparation; 8 – persecution; 9 – extermination; 10 – denial. I would say we are in stage 6. I do not think we should trivialize other democides by saying we are further along in fact. Nevertheless, it is true that many on the left do want to go further. Just a few days ago, from a progressive activist: “They [meaning us] must die.” They are “psyching” themselves up.

10 Stages of Genocide

The tip of the iceberg on interesting prep videos. “How to Survive the First 90 Days After the Collapse”

Ending on an up note, Tucker Carlson in discussion with Jon Voight about how faith saved Voight’s life:

Please share! See you tomorrow.

  1. Any chance you have a link for the Citizen Free Press graph, my computer is doing odd things and I can’t pull it up.


    1. Sorry I don’t have the original link. Try updating your browser, closing it, relaunching it, using a different browser, clearing your cache, whitelisting this website… These are the suggestions I give students who are having trouble with our online learning management system.

      I don’t like giving links to CFP, even though he does great work, because his links last only about 1-2 weeks; he doesn’t archive his material.


  2. If insanity is irrational, then how can we deal rationally with it?
    You cannot. The problem for those of us in our right minds is to try grappling with those who are not in theirs. Our dear leader Surak is captured, like his ancestors, in the discipline of logic; how can he, or any of us, imagine the irrational nature of a diseased mind, or a diseased society? Further, the possibilities of curing madness are only one in three
    While at a party during university with friends, an obviously disturbed and fearful young man took offense to my attempts to help him (you cannot fix people and you will not be fixed). He turned on me, and fixated on my yellow jacket and red hiking boot laces which were confirmation in his mind that I was a predatory homosexual, trying to make a pass at him. When I appealed to a friend to help me understand how I had gone wrong, he said, “Chuck, you can’t handle anyone who can’t handle themselves”.
    The same insight applies to our diseased society. Surakvulcan has done ‘yeoman duty’ in ferreting out the innumerable pathologies of our time and our governance.
    So what is to be done? One approach is to speak up, while we still can another is to battle for independence while within enemy lines, but the previous author cites the Holocaust, the Holodomor and the Killing Fields as failed examples of insurrections. For another thing, government has largely emptied the mental institutions of the last century into our streets, with more homeless to follow after the ending of the rent moratorium (‘21.8.1) If reason and logic cannot pull us back from the abyss, perhaps it is time to escape from the asylum.

    1. That last essay was great. I will give it another direct link in a future post. I just think it is overly optimistic about the influence of one person who, in my personal experience, just becomes a martyr.

      Emptying the mental institutions? Did you read about what Thomas Szasz advocated for? I partially sympathize, because I don’t want the power of the state to make dissent a mental illness – but maybe we have gone too far in the opposite direction.

      1. Dear Surak, thank you for pointing out that Thomas Szasz enabled the spread of the mentally ill onto our streets. I learned about him during the early 1970’s in my undergraduate education with his shocking observation that psychiatric therapeutics only helped about a third of sufferers (another third recovered without intervention and the final third stayed the same or worsened) caused waves. He did point out that mental illness does not have many physical signs (no biological basis) but bolstered the observation that it is often inherited.
        The problem revolves around the proper continued functioning of deviant (those that deviate from the norm) individuals and societies. It is in the best interest of the administrative state to off-load unsolvable problems onto communities (like unlimited deficit financing of the economy). Unfortunately the dogmatic and deceptive cult of Scientology shares some of this blame also. Perhaps Surak, being a conservative political commentator parallels the same lack of success that psychiatrists endure. Both endeavours involve mapping the correct functioning of human beings, either individually or collectively. The trick is to learn from each successive failure (toward a cure) as we strive for health, both individually and as a culture. Since health is the absence of disease, it follows that cultural health is the absence of madness.

        1. The parable of The Hobbit: How to get back to the Shire
          Hans Herman Haupte is an Austrian school economist (libertarian) and anarcho-capitalist philosopher with a roadmap back to sanity for our beleaguered world:
          The path back is reminiscent of the Ten Commandments: an uncompromising recipe of clear-sighted morality which constitutes a “thin red line”, a high-wire balancing act where if you fall off on either side, you are doomed.

  3. OK, my friend, open question. Did you see that weepy piece about interventions before you saw my prediction, or after? Because my predictions, especially about leveraging family interactions, etc., was spot-on to what they’re recommending.

    And thanks, BTW, for the double-mention.

      1. Surak, my son gave me an unusual phone call, in which he warned me to stay alert. He couldn’t tell me why, of course … which frustrates me to no end, as you might suspect.

        This corresponds with sightings by me of long lines of military vehicles on tractor trailers heading west. Two days ago, I saw enough M1A2 tanks to equip an armored brigade. Now, I’m getting reports from friends that the US military is on the move in several states.

        Off-topic, I know … but I had to say something to my friends.

        1. The endgame is starting. Mike Lindell is supposed to have some sort of symposium next week: Tue. the 10th through Thu. the 12th IIRC. He says he will present “absolute proof” of an election steal. He is working with some very smart people. Bannon said this morning that we can expect preliminary numbers from Arizona later this week. Jovan Pulitzer has the funds for a full audit of Michigan. Doug Mastriano is going to try to enforce subpoenas on 3 Pennsylvania counties. The Wisconsin House speaker’s resistance to an audit is decreasing.

          I think Lindell’s event is the key. It will be labeled as sedition or seditious conspiracy, mark my words. I fear we are moving towards martial law.

          I will keep broadcasting as long as possible. After that it’s in God’s hands, and the hands of our very local friends.

          Wolfie, please get Mrs. Wolfie home by the end of this week. God bless you both and all our readers!

          1. His event will be condemned from both Left and Right.

            From the Left, it will be – as you predict – called seditious, treasonous, etc. From the Right, it will be cited as “undermining our confidence in The System”. Never asked, of course, is if The System is still worthy of our confidence.

            Something’s coming I fear. Coming like a freight train on full throttle.

            1. I’ve been reading your articles, Nitzakhon, and they’re very good. Useful information,indeed. I’m rather sure that you would have a 4.0 GPA, in my classes, at least!

              Liked by 1 person

              1. I very much like the articles too, but I never liked the idea of perfect grades. They always seem to lead to complacency, if not worse. We need Nizakhon hungering for improvement, no matter how good he is already.

                I would give him a grade of Keep Trying, or Keep it Coming.


              2. I’m switching to being full time at Granite Grok. LT’s host has been very polite and generous letting me post there, but I want to make a bigger impact closer to home. Additionally, GG gets picked up / cited not only by local talk shows but by, for example, Gateway Pundit.

                Working on several pieces there, including – hopefully – a way to flip the argument on the Covidians.

                1. I check TGP daily for news – making sure it is current and sourced and not opinion or wishful thinking or recycled.

                  I was permanently banned from the site a couple of years ago for fighting too hard against the nasty popular anti-Semitic commenters – really pro-n@zi – like Daisy, Fun Day, Gerald Greene, Henie.2, Mark Taylor, Populist Right, and Sunislocal.

                  It tells you something when Hoft claims to be philo-Semitic, but permits pro-n@zi commentary and bans the person defending the Jews.


  4. Rule number 4: Once people are under your sway, they will instantly and permanently reclassify nonbelievers, over any trifle, as subhumans who do not have the intellectual capacity to utter words of significance.

    1. Quite true. But that’s a spin of Rule 3 – to the effect that these people truly believe themselves to be made from finer clay by believing what they believe.

      1. Yes, you are right. It is just that rule 3 leaves them passively writing us off . But they always end up turning into murderers. They don’t just go off into their enclaves and forget us. They go into their enclaves and then they attack.

        Maybe you see the attack as inevitable, but I once naively thought they would not bother most people, who they assiduously avoided. I thought they would just ignore those they deemed losers. But our existence defines their beliefs. We are never out of their view.

  5. I am an average man in all respects. 20 years Navy then 14 as a prison guard. hostile and stressfull situations are nothing new to me. our current trajectory actually has me more nervous or even scared than I have ever experienced. it is chilling to see us “othered” in real time
