Who Wants to Know?

The art of critical thinking can be expressed in the form of principles but it comes down to being innately curious about the world, the universe and our place within it. In many, this curiosity is suppressed through training, distraction and inertia. Two curious people, who’ve been on their own journeys of discovery, discuss where … Read more

Since then the numbers fluctuated but our most productive work was the result of many meetings involving between 4 and 12 people, … Read more

More Chaos is Coming

If COVID-19 was the beginning of the current round of planned chaos (arguably, everything stems from 11th September 2001, with the trigger of the “New Pearl Harbour” anticipated by the Project for the New American Century – PNAC), the 2020 US Presidential election will likely accelerate the chaos in order to complete the plans for … Read more

Phases of Deception

The context or background to what is unfolding today, under the pretext of a fabricated pandemic, is provided in How We Live which is introduced in a two part video.

In that paper, reference is made to false flag attacks to initiate and sustain the so called “war on terror” to coral the human cattle into docile submission to draconian security and surveillance while unleashing perpetual war. This was Phase One of Deception and provided the impetus and confidence to roll out the following phases to create the global police state. Today, the illusion of freedom is evaporating before our eyes.

Are we looking at the wrong birdie?

No, this is NOT an April fool joke!

While we’re all focusing on “contagion” and the risk of catching an “airborne” and “highly contagious” disease (something I learnt was “either/or” when I was young, never both together), are people getting sick from something else entirely. After all, we’re electric beings in an electric universe.

Structural Incentives Govern Behaviour

While we are distracted by the daily newsround which provokes fear, outrage and division, we continue to feed the predatory organism by succumbing to the incentives integral to the system. In this video, James Corbett talks to Derrick Broze about how we can opt out of the predatory system.

Derrick Broze on Opting Out of Technocracy
We all know the existential threat that technocracy poses to the human species. So what’s the solution to this problem? Joining us today to discuss this issue is Derrick Broze of TheConsciousResistance.com who has just published How to Opt-Out of the Technocratic State, a guide that eschews fear porn and emphasizes solutions to the encroaching technocratic tyranny.

In the discussion, and no doubt in Derrick’s new book, are various suggestions as to how to “disconnect” from the system, among which are the use of alternative currencies and means of conducting economic relationships.

Democracy Illusion

Apologies. When I tried to find the following joke, I failed and made a poor attempt at retelling it. The intrepid Maggie found it for me and credit goes to Critical Thinker, Roger, who forwarded the joke. The original joke came from David Stevenson to whom I owe an even bigger apology for bastardising the original. So here it is, as told by David:
