  1. ‘Psychology of THE State’;; For ‘Installation of Policies’, & Per Current COVID 19 Global Swindle:
    “I use Emotion for the Many, but reserve Reason for THE Few.”
    “If you tell a BIG Enough Lie and tell it Frequently Enough, it Will be Believed!”
    “What Good fortune for Governments that the People Do Not Think.”
    “The Receptivity of the Masses is very Limited, Their intelligence is Small, But their Power of forgetting is Enormous. In consequence of these facts, All effective Propaganda must be limited to a very few points, and must Harp on these in Slogans until the last Member of the Public understands what You want him to understand by Your Slogan.”
    “To Conquer a Nation, First Disarm it’s Citizens.”
    “The State must declare that the Child to be the most Precious Treasure of the People. As long as the Government is perceived as working for the benefit of the Children, the people will happily Endure almost any Curtailment of Liberty and almost any deprivation.”
    & for the ‘You will Own Nothing & be Happy Clan;
    “Through Clever and constant application of propaganda, People can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.”
    Author of ‘Observations’ – ADOLPH HITLER.

  2. I believe…therefore I am.
    Your podcast and the FEAR (false evidence appearing real) coronahoax psy-op reminded me of a rather chilling quote from TS Eliot’s “The Waste Land”:

    “…I will show you something different from either
    Your shadow at morning striding behind you
    Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
    I will show you fear in a handful of dust.”

  3. ‘A handful of Dust,’ IS the inevitable Self. Good News. The Shadowed Self, rests & recharges @ Night, Minus the Light!
    ‘Fear,’ for All it’s worth, IS the Multi Level Sliding scale preservation ‘Controller’ of Limited Exposure of the Aware Self ‘Anatomical Chassis’ [Physical fear of Dent], OR alternately, The Full Spectrum Controller of THE ill informed/ Naive/ Corralled, Fearful Masses!
    T.S. Elliot. Interesting Lad.
