Ken and I met at Occupy and got to know each other through Critical Thinking which started at the Bank of Ideas. Ken recently emailed this extract from Facebook and asked what I thought of this article and the video: Windows on the World INSIDE OCCUPY AND BANK OF IDEAS.
Confession: while I encountered resistance and hostility when sharing information on climate science at Occupy and had reservations about some of the “facilitation” and the obsession with consensus, I wasn’t sufficiently “aware” to realise Occupy was a PSYOP. In retrospect, it’s hard to refute Kelfin’s and Dom’s assertions. More importantly, Occupy has paved the way for another PSYOP, Extinction Rebellion (XR); was that Occupy’s purpose all along?
Not only has XR attracted similar followers; it uses the same Common Purpose, NLP, Delphi and mind control techniques. XR is “controlled opposition”. Not least because it’s not opposing (or rebelling against) anything! XR’s agenda is in lock-step with that of corporate greenwash and the new world order backed by every corrupt institution, including big oil. The “climate crisis” (from global warming) has been manufactured and has no basis in fact. The reality is that we’re entering a solar minimum which could herald another Little Ice Age.
Systemic Risk and Climate Change – What if the claimed consensus is wrong?
What is apparent, in both Occupy and XR, irrespective of protestations to the contrary, is hierarchy and it is all the more insidious through being obscured by lies and deception.
What both Occupy and XR aspire to is scale, ie. mass “protest”, and that’s really the point; to create or accelerate momentum for change through mass movements which aren’t spontaneous or “grass roots” but carefully infiltrated, choreographed and orchestrated.
Critical Thinking at the Free University has just published the 7th and final iteration of its accumulated research and analysis of political economy, How we live – who rules, how and why?, which explains:
– we are at a crossroads and faced with a choice; the choice will differ depending on where people are on their personal journey of discovery. Many have yet to reach the limits of critical thinking in exploring political economy to realise that there lies a world of possibilities beyond;
– events are coming to a head; dramatic changes to the fabric of global society are accelerating. The “powers that shouldn’t be” are preparing for the Cull.How we live – Who rules, how and why? at archive.org
Below is the Abstract of the final iteration:
AbstractHow we live – Who rules, how and why? at freecriticalthinking.org
Purpose: Challenging outdated and erroneous assumptions that govern most people’s world views. To reveal the world as it is, rather than how “authority” would have us believe it to be.
Design/methodology/approach: This paper is the product of non-hierarchical, self- organised, co-creative learning; exploring the world from multiple perspectives.
Findings: Institutions which govern our lives are inherently corrupt, having been created, infiltrated and co-opted for the purpose of our subjugation and enslavement. The currently political economy farms humans and harvests the wealth they create for the benefit of a small number of individuals and their families. Farming of humans has a long history and we are approaching the apogee of centralised power which plans the total submission of humanity to its will and population reduction to optimise land and resources for the exclusive use of the “farmers”.
Research limitations/implications: Ideological and institutional blindness have obscured the reality of our existence.
Practical implications: We are shackled by our beliefs and misconceptions; when we understand the reality of our condition, we have the means to change that reality because we are the power or fuel of the political economy.
Social implications: Armed with a shared understanding of reality, we can shed our deference to “authority” and cease to abdicate responsibility for ourselves and each other to unreliable representatives and corrupt hierarchies. Self-organisation trumps “command and control” which is easily subverted for selfish ends.
Originality/value: Orthodox academia and media present a false picture of reality by design, based on abstracted data/information and erroneous assumptions. Co-creative learning reveals the nature of reality by looking at events and issues from multiple perspectives, exposing how everything is connected; little happens in the world by accident. There is a plan and Critical Thinking’s research and analysis reveals it.
This work, started at Outersite.org, continued at freecriticalthinking.org from January 2012 until 18th October 2019. Having met the boundaries of Critical Thinking, the journey of discovery will continue here, until another co-creative learning project emerges, to take over from where Critical Thinking ceased to add to the archive of material which supports the conclusions of its research and analysis. That material remains accessible at freecriticalthinking.org.
Critical Thinking also has a BitChute channel with selected videos preserved from YouTube censorship.

Edward Bernays sold America’s entry into WW1 on a message of spreading freedom and democracy (a practice followed by US administrations ever since). He persuaded women that cigarettes were a penile symbol of power and aligned smoking with the suffragette movement.
The same techniques are used today to sell wars, economic repression and the theory of man-made global warming which survives in the face of historical experience and contemporary observation.
Our world view has been choreographed through concentrated media (particularly the BBC). Anyone who missed The Century of the Self (which is, ironically a BBC production), would be well advised to watch it. It explains how our decisions are no longer based on rational thought but appeals to emotion and base instincts.
Bernays’ uncle Siegmund Freud was concerned with the study of individuals. Bernays was focused and grew rich on manipulating the masses.
