Greta Doomsberg, blah blah, blah - my thoughts exactly.
I got up this morning to the first frost of the winter. Not even Halloween and frost already. It has been reported that Arctic sea ice is at high levels this year and this is usually a sign of a cold winter to come. Well, it's still only autumn but winter has started and, I think, there is snow forecast for the high ground in Scotland too, this weekend.
I came across an article recently which said that Bill Gates and friends are lining up to start mining minerals in Greenland. Apparently, Greenland has loads of minerals under the ice which are needed for technology and that is why they keep trying to convince us that the ice is melting. If you believe the ice is gone, you won't mind so much, or maybe won't even be aware that they will be there digging it up. After all, how many of us will be up around Greenland to see what is really going on?
On a related topic, we have been told for many years now that there is an island of plastic the size of Texas in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I recently tried to find a picture of this and couldn't get one. I got drawings and photos of small areas of plastic waste but no image of this supposedly large island of plastic. Surely, if it is there, it has been photographed from satellites or drones? Does anyone have a picture of this? Or is this another case of, out of sight, so lie all you want about it?
Insulate Britain do have a point regarding better insulation for our homes but their tactics only serve to annoy people and, to be honest, I've seen a couple of interviews with their spokespersons and, quite frankly, they are nuts!
I also recently listened to a talk by, I think, Alan Watts, or it might have been Max Igan, but I'm not entirely sure, I'll have to try and find it again. He, whoever he was, was saying that the world is insane, but because we are born into the insanity, we think it is normal. And although the insanity is right there for us all to see,(especially at the moment), we are blind to it because we live in it, and our parents basically programmed us to go along with it all, just like their parents did to them, and so the perpetual cycle of insanity continues ad infinitum.
Just sit and think about what is going on in the world at the moment, what sane adult would walk around with a mask on rather than freely breathe the air, or let a pharmaceutical company inject you with an unknown experimental substance with no knowledge of what it is or the possible side, or long term, effects? And why are we taking 'health' advice from the likes of Boris Johnson, a man so reprehensibly corrupt and irresponsible, he can't even manage to put on a condom. Or Nicola Sturgeon, a woman so anally retentive it would take a crow bar to open up her sphincter, and for whom the word 'fun' is a concept completely beyond her comprehension.
Or Bill Gates? Take some time and go and watch some interviews with this man, talking about 'sticking needles into children' and the most recent one about Epstein. This man is a psychopath, yet, he is allowed to dictate health policy to the entire fecking world! And we are listening to these people and letting them tell us what to do! I watched a clip last night of a man being arrested for sunbathing on a beach in Australia, SUNBATHING ON A BEACH!!! Can you really not see the insanity of all this? Just look at some of the 'rules' that were imposed by the petty dictators in the last year, - here in N Ireland they banned people from graveyards (we couldn’t have the dead spreading covid!) - Dan Andrews told people in Australia they had to keep their mask on when eating and drinking. Really, where is the fecking logic in any of this? It's beyond insane!
But it isn't just today, look back at the wars and misery humanity has engineered and inflicted on one another. How could any sane person send someone's child out to murder others, so they can claim a piece of land, or impose an ideology? Or what about a world that allows a child to starve when others are allowed to hoard billions, which they could not spend in ten lifetimes, never mind one; and whose egos are so large, they can spend millions on a day trip to space, but won't pay one of their own employees more than the bare minimum wage. It is insane and we allow this insanity to go on around us every day!
I used to think I was crazy because I could never fit into the world in the way others wanted me to. I remember on many occasions being told to 'wise up', often just for questioning and challenging the status quo, or asking why. An insult that was also levelled at me at the start of this nonsense, because I challenged the lies and refused to comply with the nonsense. But, I was, and still am, prepared to stand and fight my corner for freedom and truth, regardless of what the frightened sheep bleat.
I don't fit in and now I see that I never will, at least as long as it keeps going as it is, and thank God for that! I realise now that I have been calling out the insanity for most of my life whether it was the dogma of Catholicism, the egotism of teachers, or the idiocy of rules and people in authority who have disappeared up their own rectum. If you think this world is sane, then I am more than happy if you think I am not. We are living in a world of lies and half-truths but, mostly, complete and utter nonsense, and I, for one, will not go along with it. Not that I ever did, and on those rare occasions when I tried, I always felt that I had let myself down.
We are being led by lunatics and egotistical morons, who are leading us on a merry dance through bedlam. Why would anyone with a modicum of intelligence, or the capacity to think critically, take someone like Boris Johnson or Nicola Sturgeon seriously, they are not just ridiculous but stupid, just plain old dumb and dumber. Yet doctors and medical professionals, educated people, around the world are going along with their insanity.
I watched Noam Chomsky recently talk about what a real education is, he said a real education is not about the learning of facts, it is about learning 'how to think'. I see now that many of our 'health' professionals and those in positions of authority are just people with good memories, who can remember what they have been told, but lack the capacity to think for themselves, or apply critical thinking and logic, which makes them vulnerable not just to manipulation, but also to corruption.
Buddhism says that life is suffering and that is true, up to a point, anyone born to live will eventually suffer the pain of illness and death. However, life is really not that hard, or least it does not have to be. I’ve noticed that when things are right, life flows, it is easy, it is not hard or complicated at all. It is us, we make it difficult, we imprison ourselves in rules that someone else made and allow ourselves to be made miserable by them. It is how our society is structured that makes it difficult, as the Aboriginal man said, before the white man, the land was free, the food was free and the doctor was free. If only! Nothing is free now, you’re not even ‘free’ to breathe the air, and every day it tears away another little piece of your soul.
Life does not have to be this difficult but we have allowed it to become so. We have let the lunatics take over the asylum and run the show and as long as we keep obeying their instructions, then it will continue and will become more and more difficult. Do you really want to stay in the institution for the rest of what remains of your life, or do you want out, the choice is yours, it is time to wise up.
So in between art attacks I was reading a lot over the summer. I finished the Tom Rob Smith Trilogy which includes Child 44, The Secret Speech and Agent 6. I would definitely recommend them. Child 44 was made into a film, I haven’t seen it but my sons didn’t think it was up to much.
One of the local charity shops has a whole room of second hand books so I pick up most of my fiction there quite cheaply. They always get them back when I’ve finished with them, so it’s a win, win all round. I read some ‘womens’ fiction, if you’re allowed to call it that now. Anita Shreve’s, A Change in Altitude and one called Home but I cannot remember who wrote it, Trophy Child by Paula Daly, and The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan. You could rattle through them in a day or two and they won’t tax your brain too much. One of the reasons why I don’t particularly like ‘women’s’ fiction is that the central characters are always so bloody weak and drippy. And it’s all a bit ‘Oh no! Gerald is shagging the au pair again, and that’s the third time this week, whatever am I going to do? But I still love him so much!’ It hard to feel much sympathy for the characters when it usually turns out she started shagging Gerald at the Christmas party when his wife was 6 months pregnant. But they’re a cheap read and it’s probably the only way I would ever read them, I wouldn’t spend good money on them. One exception was Sail Away by Celia Imrie. I got this as part of my prize for winning the Haiku competition and really enjoyed it, so this is one I would recommend and will definitely read more of hers.
I’m not a great reader of fiction and prefer autobiography over other genres. But as I worked my way through The Gulag Archipelago, I needed a break now and again, as the brutality was quite harrowing at times and, more so, at present, as we seem to be sleep walking back into totalitarianism. Everyone should read this book, it should be on the Secondary School curriculum. It is an appalling indictment of man’s inhumanity to man and, as I’ve said before, Stalin killed no one, it was the ordinary Russians who ‘followed’ the orders of the tyrant. They estimate 14 million Russians died in World War 2 and 17 million Chinese. They estimate 65 million died under Stalin and Mao, killed by their own, murdered and starved. An appalling lesson from history that everyone should know about, but seems to have been forgotten by our glorious leaders and their minions. Ignore the lessons of history at your peril!
Other good reads were Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. The Geisha who the book was based on was not impressed with Arthur’s interpretation and wrote her own story afterwards. I have it on the Kindle but haven’t read it yet, but I would still recommend Memoirs.
Other fictions were John Grisham’s The Appeal. I enjoyed this up to a point and it felt very relevant considering it’s themes of political and corporate corruption. There is no happy ending to this one so don’t read it if you’re feeling depressed, it just might tip you over the edge especially with ‘life’, if you could call it that, at present.
On the rest of the reading list was Wilbur Smith’s Blue Horizon, this is book 11 in a whole series about the Courtney family but I haven’t read any of the others. It was a bit of an epic and set in Africa in the early days of colonialism. I did enjoy it and will look out for the others.
John Case’s The Genesis Code was ok. I could see where it was going quite early on, part of the ending didn’t quite gel, but it was ok and worth a read, if you’re not looking for anything too taxing on the brain cells.
Since it was a bit of a Russian summer, I also read Shallow Graves in Siberia by Michael Krupe. This took me back to autobiography. He was a Polish national and this is the story of how he ended up in the gulags and managed to escape both them, and the Jesuits, eventually ending up in Britain. A happy ending for once! I would strongly recommend it. A great read and a reminder of just how amazing the human spirit can be and what we can endure and overcome.
And after all that, and to continue on the Russian theme, I was trawling through some music on Youtube and came across this stunning piece by Tchaikovsky. I’m a big fan of Tchaikovsky but I had never heard of this one, it is called Hymn of the Cherubim. It has to be the most beautiful piece of music I have ever heard and it gives me great pleasure to share it with you all today. It shows that even though we can be absolutely appalling to one another, we can also be beautiful and wonderful, and this is a demonstration of what humanity can produce when we are at our absolute best. Food for the soul that speaks to God. Turn out the lights, turn up the volume and let your soul soar to the heavens. Amen!
Well I've been busy working on this for the last few weeks so the blog has been a bit neglected recently. But it's off to it's new home tomorrow so I'll get back to a bit of writing then, hopefully. I haven't painted much in the last 18 months and was glad to be asked to do this as it got my painting muscles going again and I think it's the best version of this I've done so far. There are a few details I'm not entirely happy with but I might get them corrected before I let it go.
I don't normally sign my painting's at the front, I usually just sign and date the back of the canvas but I was asked to sign it at the front so he or rather she who pays the piper calls the tune!
The Taliban have now taken over Afghanistan again which is a surprise to no one, it would seem, but the politicians, especially when it was reported a few weeks ago that they were in talks with China.
Realistically, no one in the West was ever going to succeed in Afghanistan because of one simple fact, you will never beat a man in his own country, especially a country as hard as Afghanistan, those people are like mountain goats, tough as old shoe leather. Any initial successes you may have, as with ‘shock and awe’ in Iraq, will fail in the long term because you are a foreigner in a foreign land, and unless you can flood the country with your own people to live there permanently, as the Chinese appear to have done in Tibet, then eventually you will have to leave. And what the west usually leaves behind is a mess of their own creation.
For comparison, the UK is 2.7 times smaller than Afghanistan and the might of the British Army could not win in the 6 counties of Northern Ireland, even with the support of the majority of the population.
When you turn off the technology and the news, as I have done several times this year, and take a step back, you have time to think and the bigger picture starts to reveal itself. I’ve been trying to figure out what is going on in the world with the ‘pandemic’ and what the end game is. There are plenty of theories online, most designed to generate fear and confusion, and most best ignored. But experience tells me it is always about money.
For years, I looked at the US and the military industrial complex as being the villains of world conflict and war. I now see that the military were just the pawns of the bankers and corporations who have been running the world for decades. We paid the costs of those wars with our taxes, and the banks and corporations took the profits, not to mention the costs in the thousands of lives that were wasted or the countries that were destroyed. It is now obvious that most western governments are corrupt and controlled by the banks/corporations, and act in their interests, not ours. They don’t give a damn about who is left sitting in poverty, or the decimation of the high street, or the destruction of the economy and job losses, as long as they make a profit.
The UK is now basically a second world country, or at least getting very close to it, a position that has accelerated under the ‘pandemic, and becoming less relevant on the world stage with every passing day. The US is the same, it is on its knees and deliberately engineered to be so. The corporations have abandoned the US and the west, they moved all the industry out to China and other Eastern countries, less costs and more profits, at least for now, and we’re left to watch the complete destruction of our economies and lives, while our leaders fiddle with their egos, fill their pockets and sell us out.
I never realised how much the world needed a strong US to keep the balance of power in the world, but the days of western dominance are over. There is a brain dead corporate shill in the White House, (remember Spitting Image when the presidents brain was missing, history repeats itself) politics across the west is riven with corruption and, as usual, it will be us who will ultimately pay the price.
I have included a link to a video I watched a couple of months ago down below, it is titled ‘Massive Chinese cities you never heard of. It’s only 7 minutes long and I would ask you to take the time and look at it. You will see just how far ahead of the west China is and how neglected and in decline we are.
The media, of course, are a big part of it too, cheerleading the destruction and keeping us distracted with the latest hysteria and ignoring the real issues, whether it’s BLM or ‘Trans rights’. By the way, where is all this ‘trans’ discrimination happening, are they denied work, can they not marry whoever they chose, are they excluded from society? They have the same rights as the rest of us, so what do we have that they don’t? They can mutilate their genitalia and call themselves Daphne, Josephine or Frank, who is stopping them indulging in their narcissistic, gender navel-gazing and denying them their ‘rights’? What specific rights are they being denied?
And BLM, where is the discrimination happening? Is it in jobs or housing? If they are so concerned with black lives, why don’t they start with gang crime, read Malcolm X, and look at what is needed in their own communities instead of screaming about white privilege.(I’m still waiting for mine to arrive, I’m sure it will be here any day now) Someone needs to tell them that Europe is white that is the way it is, that doesn’t make it racist. And someone tell Lewis Hamilton, Grand Prix racing started in Europe, if it was so racist, he wouldn’t be the world’s number one driver with 7 Grand Prix’s under his belt, and living a tax-avoiding lifestyle in Monaco with his millions. Go take a look at a white, working-class community in Britain and tell them about their white privilege.
Or, as a man, maybe highlight the problem of absent and excluded fathers which isn’t always down to men, as the feminist movement would have us believe. In my work, I have dealt with men who have been denied access to their children, even when there are Court orders in place, by vindictive and bitter women, and no one seems to be able to do anything about it, not the police or social services. Children need fathers too, masculinity is not toxic, and is just another agenda driven issue to divide us. The feminist movement have made men the enemy and I don’t care what they say, experience and every social survey will confirm, a stable home with 2 parents and a strong family network of support is still the best place to bring up children and has the best outcomes for both the children and society. As the African saying goes ‘It takes a village to raise a child’.
And, as usual, while we are all distracted and bickering among ourselves over the latest non-issue, the corporations continue to bleed us dry and are, literally, getting away with murder. Is it a coincidence that President Magufuli of Tanzania and President Moïse of Haiti, who both refused to enforce the vaccine, are now dead? Is that what happens when you stand in the way of the almighty profit? I hope President Bolsonaro of Brazil has good and trustworthy security.
I've been offline for a few weeks, taking a break from the world et al, and trying to get organised with art and writing. I started editing some of the older posts on the blog as I didn't quite get the tagging right in the early days. I've been trying to find a piece on Afghanistan I wrote some time ago, to no avail, so I'm going over the whole blog, editing and updating, I spent about 3 hours today on one page alone and still plenty more to get through. I'm also trying to organise a writing project but my writing is all over the house and I'm trying to get it all gathered in one place and put it into some sort of order. I really need to get this stuff organised as I can never find anything when I need it.
I have a painting to do too for someone who contacted me on Facebook so I got it started yesterday. It's in oil so it will take a few weeks with the drying time needed for the layers. I've also been reading a lot and will update with a book list soon as well.
Not much else to report, every day is like Groundhog day but I'm off to England next week and really looking forward to the break away. The zombie apocalypse is still in full swing here and it's getting to the point where I literally couldn't be bothered to leave the house, maybe if the weather was better, I might be more enthused but at the minute, there isn't much to tempt you to go anywhere.
On the plus side, I have seen a few more without masks out and about but, honestly, I'm sick of the whole thing now. I want my life back, I can't do work and home and nothing else, it's inhumane.
I no longer engage in conversation about CV or VC's and politely tell anyone who starts talking about it that if that is the only topic of conversation they have, then try someone else. I am not engaging with any of this nonsense anymore, I'm done with it.
HARE RAMA, HARE RAMA, RAMA RAMA, HARE HARE
All respect to Lord Krishna and his devotees!
As the next step on my spiritual journey, I went on a silent retreat last weekend, down in the beautiful county of Fermanagh which was run by the Hare Krishna’s. The retreat was held in a house just across from the island, Inis Rath, where the temple is, but we had a couple of trips over to it. We were over early on the Saturday morning and then back again on Sunday, after the retreat ended, to take part in their weekly feast.
The silence began on Friday night at 9.00pm and continued until 12 midday on Sunday. I hadn’t expected any difficulties maintaining the silence, since I did the six week silence for Lent, which is still ongoing. I prefer silence these days and it is quite difficult to find silence, it doesn’t matter how quiet I am, there is always noise from somewhere intruding, whether it’s from neighbours, distant traffic or aeroplanes passing overhead. But it’s also amazing just how well you can communicate without speaking.
It was great to get away from all the fear-mongering and chill out with others who appreciate the joy of life. There was a great mix of people both, at the retreat and the feast, and a great time was had by all. The feast is open to all members of the public and is free; you need to be there about midday, to get the boat over, and it takes you back around 3.00pm. It is an experience worth checking out. I will be taking some of the family with me next time. Although, it is free, you can make a donation if you wish.
The Hare Krishna’s are vegetarian and I had expected that I would feel hungry but, I had no hunger pangs at all. The food was first class, fresh, wholesome and very filling. It was so filling I didn’t even eat much at the feast on Sunday. All in all, it was a heavenly experience, getting up early in the morning, sitting outside having a cup of tea with the view of Lower Lough Erne in front of you, and listening to the birds singing and the peacock calling from the island, and one that I will be repeating in the future.
Sadly, they are booked up for the rest of this year and there will be no retreats until next year. They are moving everything to the island, as the house on the mainland has been sold, and the house on the island needs work done before it can be ready for visitors. I am hoping to get back down later in the summer and am negotiating a deal whereby I can come and stay in exchange for work.
If anyone is interested in the Hare Krishna’s here is a couple of links to check out:
If there was a deadly virus in the air, where would it be?
Now think about this logically - it would be everywhere, on the ground, on every building, on every tree, plant and animal, on our hair, clothes and shoes, on every car, bus, train and lorry, and every bird and insect flying in the air. And that deadly virus would also be on your face and mask, the one you keep putting on and taking off, and touching all the time, mixing nicely with all the bacteria from your hands and mouth.
This is what you need to wear when you are in the vicinity of a deadly virus - a full hazmat suit and separate oxygen supply, not a piece of rag across your mouth that you made from an old t-shirt, or 3 for a pound from Poundland. Wake up people, look beyond the fear and see reality.
I had started writing this piece last week, it was speculating on what is coming next and then someone shared this information with me and I thought I’d better get this posted quickly.
One of the internet rumours about the end game in all this, is that this is about reducing the population of the world and ‘saving the planet’ by the self-appointed, global elite playing God, through an enforced vaccination programme that will wipe out millions?
Well, here’s a link to the London Borough Tender Service for Body Storage Facilities for a contract period of four years - Temporary Body Storage Service - Find a Tender (find-tender.service.gov.uk)
Here’s an excerpt - The Authority seeks to procure a framework agreement for temporary body storage in the event of an excess deaths situation for the 32 London boroughs and the City of London, led by Westminster City Council. The framework agreement will appoint a single provider and will be for a period of 4 years. This will be a contingency contract, only called upon in the event that an excess deaths situation arises in the future and existing local body storage capacity needs to be augmented.
The over-arching aim of this tender is to provide a single framework supplier that will be able to provide temporary body storage facilities to house deceased in the event of an excess deaths situation. The deceased will be stored with dignity and respect, at locations to be determined based on local London needs at the time and will require some design elements to accommodate local site conditions and constraints, while being capable of rapid deployment, construction and commissioning to an agreed standard. This framework will be procured by the Authority as the pan-London lead, but all London local authorities may call-off against the framework.
This will be a contingency cover framework and as such there is no minimum guarantee of any level of spend or call-off under the framework agreement.
The Authority will be hiring the structures and associated items, which will be decommissioned and removed at the end of the requirement.
It is a one-off contract not for recurrence. Now, if it had said that it was a safety measure just in case, and up for renewal every four years or so, I would have thought it was just a piece of forward planning.
However, when you add it to this video of Bill Gates talking (Freudian slipping?)about pandemic 2, then I fear people, we are heading into a hell of global corporate making. You have been warned.
And keep in mind, and I'm sure people are sick of me saying it, 3 weeks to save the NHS and flatten the curve.
I'm still reading the Gulag Archipelago and was researching a speech by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and came across this quote which I thought I would share: A good motto to live or write by - and never more relevant in this age of fake news and lying and corrupt politicians and media.
“You can resolve to live your life with integrity. Let your credo be this: Let the lie come into the world, let it even triumph. But not through me.”— Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Nobel Lecture (1972)
So, our glorious leaders gathered in Cornwall for the G7, flying in from all over the world, no quarantining for 10 days in a hotel for them, no masks, no social distancing and a big barbie on the beach for over 30 people, and a great time was had by all! And didn't they deserve it after the hard year they had being tyrants and dictators. It's not easy at the top when you're a totalitarian fascist puppet!
Even the Queen attended, a few weeks after burying ol’ Phil, looking like she was having a high old time, no mask and no social distancing either. It’s amazing to think how, just a few short weeks ago, there she was, sat all alone with her little mask on at the funeral and here she is now, a few weeks later, partying in Cornwall! No Victoria, our Liz!
And here we are, still not allowed to travel, masks on, social distancing, separated from our elderly and dying family and friends, not allowed to funerals and weddings, 30 people only. And to top it all, freedom day, 21 June, is now postponed, they say it is only for 4 more weeks (like 3 weeks to Save the NHS and flatten the curve?) but, take it from me, this is indefinitely.
They are playing us, taking us for fools and surely, even the most devoted member of the covid cult must see, after their ‘jolly wheeze’ weekend, it’s one rule for them and another for us.
How much more of this scam are you going to take? Keep doing what they tell you and they will keep tightening the screw. No one is coming to save us, we have to save ourselves and the only people who can end this is us. They are a few and we are the many, we can end this today, take the mask off, go visit your family and friends, have a barbie and invite the neighbourhood, take your life back because they are not going to give it to you. Rise up people, the power is ours if we stand together. Power to the people!
So, you put on the mask, you didn't go see granny for a year or randomly hug anyone, you did the social-distancing when out and about, sanitised your hands until the skin turned raw and finally, you got the vaccine but still they won't guarantee you your freedoms. Hmmm???
Then, they drag out the biggest scumbag in Britain this weekend, Tony (lying rat) Bliar, the EU's favourite traitor. He wants the vaccine enforced or else we should all be segregated. Medical apartheid, here we come!
Divide and conquer!
THREE WEEKS TO SAVE THE NHS AND FLATTEN THE CURVE!!

Still think this is about a virus?
You can’t go online and research anything without coming across the ‘illuminati’. Apparently, these are the elite who really run the world (and you can see just what a great job they’re doing!), they rope in all the top celebrities and are soooo evil because they believe in and worship the devil!!! Wooooh! Scary stuff!
They’re supposed to be interconnected with the Freemasons and a load of other secret societies who, allegedly, possess old ‘knowledge’ or ‘magic’. They share symbols (pentagons, all seeing eyes etc) and you go through a ceremony or initiation when you join. Miley Cyrus is supposed to be one, and that would be enough to ensure it’s a club that I, and I’m sure many others, would never want to join!
I have actively avoided mentioning any of this up until now because I think it is all just another load of old crap, designed to distract and divide us, while the mega-rich continue to plunder the world’s resources for themselves.
Now if you want to run around with your trousers up over your knees, give secret handshakes (like a bunch of schoolboys), cover one of your eyes in photos and make hand gestures to signify your loyalty to Satan, then you really need to take a long hard look at yourself and grow up. Just writing that shows how absurd and rather pathetic it all is, ‘Oh, look at us! We’re Satanists, how evil are we?!’
If you look at it logically, if you believe in the devil, then you have to believe in God, I mean, you cannot have the ultimate evil without the ultimate good, it goes against the laws of physics. And I know whose side I would want to be on.
In the Navajo tradition, they believe that man is bad and has to learn to be good, a bit like the old Catholic teaching on original sin but not as fascist. I don’t think the Navajo would have excluded a child from the family burial plot because someone hadn’t poured water on its head and said some ‘magic’ words. The more you break this stuff down, the more ridiculous it all appears. How could competent and intelligent people have been persuaded to believe this?! Then again, look around!
There was a time when I believed that man was inherently good but the events of this last year have made me reassess that belief. When you look at it logically, again, we have to learn to be, not only good, but to be human/humane. As M. Scott Peak pointed out in The Road Less Travelled series, it is natural to defecate in your pants, but you learn to control it, just as you can learn how to behave and control your emotions and actions.
There are several well known cases of children brought up with animals who adopted the behaviour of the animals. Psychology will also tell you that if language and a host of other ‘human’ behaviours have not been acquired by the age of 7, then the chances of acquiring them after that become slim. It would appear therefore, that there are no inherent instincts or behaviours that make us human and our ‘humanity’ is something that has to be learned. We are animals, whether we like to believe it or not; I was going to say animals with manners, but I don’t think our manners are as good as many other animal species (eg: elephants). In the face of that, I think we need to show a lot more humility, and a lot less arrogance, about who we think we are and what we know.
M Scott Peck in People of the Lie pointed to laziness as the source of underlying evil in humanity. Being good requires effort, being evil requires no effort at all. Consciousness is that effort and begins early in humans, anyone who has children will remember the three year old who asked why, why, why? We also learn what we are allowed to question and what we are not. If you live in a society where you are forbidden from challenging or asking questions about that society and/or the belief systems you live under, you never develop beyond the psychological boundaries of childhood and mature into full adult consciousness. You remain passive and obedient, mindlessly accepting and believing everything you’ve been told or, at least, pretending to.
Ireland has had one of the hardest lockdowns in the world over the ‘pandemic’ and has been one of the least vocal in speaking out against it and the restrictions. The consciousness of the majority of the population remains undeveloped and immature. Centuries of British rule and the autocracy of the Catholic Church have created a passive and cowardly population. Here in the north, there is an additional factor to that submissiveness. On the nationalist side, many people still fear Sinn Fein and what they, or their cohorts, might do if they go up against them. The silence against lockdown has been deafening on the nationalist side, a side many would have thought would have been the first to object to having their freedom taken away. But it’s amazing what the Council for Foreign Relations (aka CIA) can buy for €4.6m (Political principles, Ms McDonald? That’ll do nicely, Mr Haass.) See link below.
There have been several voices of dissent on the Unionist/Protestant side (Sammy Wilson, Van Morrison) which, when you look at history, comes as no surprise. The first ‘Irish rebels’ were Presbyterians, going back to Wolfe Tone in 1798 and, in the Easter Rising, there were many from the Presbyterian tradition initially involved in the fight for freedom and equality. It was only afterwards, on the issue of Home Rule, that the divide opened up across religious grounds, leading to the political division of a mainly Protestant North and a Catholic South. These were the same tactics the British used to divide India from Pakistan and set Muslim against Hindu, and vice versa.
The false humility promoted by ‘Christianity’, along with nationalism/republicanism, has created a culture of victimhood and martyrdom. The nodding assent on display is the result of a population who are not used to thinking for themselves, or questioning authority, or rather the authorities who are supposed to be on their side. Religious, political and community leaders continue to exploit this victimhood mentality to maintain power and control over the masses. (A strategy not confined to Ireland and now being used by the manipulators behind the BLM movement). This is not to say that the Irish haven’t endured some horrific abuses over the centuries and there is a kind courage in bearing suffering that is beyond your control. But none at all, when it is fully within your control as a grown adult.
When it comes to being good or evil, I don’t care if you worship God or Satan. I do however, believe that both those entities are the excuse many use for a lot of self-righteous hypocrisy and some extremely questionable behaviour. I believe the choice between good and evil is ours and our alone, but it does require consciousness, and that can only be fully achieved with the right support and advice growing up, and begins with observing, thinking and asking questions. People may be able to control your actions at times, and we may not always be allowed to openly question what we are being told, but the majority of us still have the capacity to think, even if we can’t always express those thoughts.
Some believe that we need religion to provide the moral framework for the development of a conscience and that, without religion, people would not be good at all and evil would flourish. I disagree; there are some religions/belief systems that are fairly benign, eg: Buddhism, but the evils committed under Christianity would do Hitler proud and are no guarantee that a person will act morally or from a place of consciousness. Religion may tell us what to believe but consciousness makes us think.
When we think about evil, we think about the great evils of Stalin or Hitler who as I pointed out in previous posts, never actually killed anyone. As Scott Peck pointed out, there is another low level of evil, within all of us that we need to be aware of and recognise. We would consider breaking a child’s bones an evil act, but would we feel the same about a resentful and jealous parent breaking a child’s spirit? Or what about the overly involved parent, who gives their child everything, as a way of emotionally manipulating the child and sabotaging their autonomy?
Then there are the diabolical horrors committed by humans against each other when in a state of war, or in defence of an ideology. I’m only a couple of chapters into the Gulag Archipelago and I’m appalled to think about the minds that dreamt up the tortures detailed in it. It’s easy to think the perpetrators were psychotic, and I’m sure there were a few psychos among them, but they couldn’t all have been, or maybe the devil made them do it.
As Solzhenitsyn points out in Chapter 4, ‘If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil, cuts through the heart of every human being’.
He acknowledges the potential within himself to do what his tormentors are doing. He wonders how he would behave if his life had taken a different direction, and questions what makes decent men complicit within these types of situations. He concludes that it is because they believe they are doing good and, as the old saying goes, ‘The road to hell is paved with good intentions’.
The corruption on display around the world by those in power today could make one think that maybe they are minions of Satan and Old Nick, himself, is running the show. But I’m not convinced. They say the devil makes work for idle hands but I think it is the weak minded who are most easily led towards corruption.
I don’t know if the Illuminati are a real thing or are just a few deluded celebrities desperately trying to give themselves some ‘street cred’. Illuminati means enlightened and if they really are seeking enlightenment, then they will have difficulty finding it in the vileness that Satan represents. As Jordan Peterson says, ‘truth is the path to true enlightenment’ and truth is the very antithesis of the devil, aka, the Father of Lies.
The population, at present, are being lied to on a grand scale. The powers behind the lies have been doing this for decades and are well practised in making a lie appear as truth, and the truth, a lie. They use censorship and propaganda to confuse and misdirect us, and people have been manipulated into believing they are doing good by wearing masks, social-distancing and taking ‘vaccines’, without any real scientific truth being presented to validate those claims . Debates rage in families and online regarding the efficacy of these measures and keep us divided and distracted, again.
The only defence against a lie is to consciously seek the truth and be authentic, and that begins with us and us alone. We have within us the power to do good or evil, and recognising and acknowledging our capacity for evil, as well as good, is the first step towards consciousness, and that requires honesty and effort. As we try to navigate our way through the web of lies and deceit that has been created as part of this ‘crisis’, remember the words of Edmund Burke, ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing’, so think on.
Apologies forgot to add in the links:
Just a point to think about on vaccines. Every bite of processed food we buy comes with a label detailing the contents, additives/colourants etc, and the quantity for each. It also has nutrition information on carbohydrate/fat/sugar content as well.
Medicines go through a process of double-blind testing with control groups, and when you buy or are prescribed medicine, there is a leaflet detailing the contents and a list of possible contra-indications and side effects. If you have an adverse reaction to a medicine you can seek compensation from the manufacturer.
Vaccines are not tested with double-blind control groups. Neither are you given a list of the contents, possible contra-indications or side effects. And if something goes wrong, the manufacturer has no liability to compensate you. Our taxes pay for their errors through the government.
So, what did I do in my six weeks of off? Well, I read the entire Harry Potter series, and very enjoyable they were too. I didn’t want to read anything political or anything ‘real’ and I’ve carried on reading more fiction since. I’ve just finished the excellent Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith. It is about a serial killer and is set at the end of the Stalin era in Russia. It is based on the story of the real-life serial killer, Andrei Chikatilo who murdered 56 people in Russia in the 1980’s and 90’s. I’ve also ordered the two sequels, The Secret Speech and Agent 6.
There are some statistics at the back of the book relating to Russia under Stalin that are chilling. The two that stood out for me are; it is estimated that 14.5 million people died during this time (the proletariat whom communism was supposed to free) and they would even execute children as young as 12. Absolutely brutal!
If the detail in the book is anything like it really was, the levels of paranoia and fear, it must have been hell for the citizenry. I remember in Wild Swans how people were the same under Mao, paranoid and ready to sell out their family, friends and neighbours, and how in the blink of an eye you could fall out of favour with the authorities and the dangers that brought. The frightening thing about this is when I look around me today, I see we have learned nothing. It would take very little to turn society into that again, we are halfway there already. I’ve seen and experienced first-hand in the last year, how people who I thought had a modicum of sense and intelligence, completely caved into the fear and propaganda. I have been ostracised by family members for not taking the virus ‘seriously’. (What was I supposed to do, invite it around for dinner and talk to it?!) And the ‘covid cult’ has caused divisions that debates about Trump, global-warming and Brexit never even came close to.
I have also refused to wear a mask, (I will not be complicit in my own enslavement) something which pisses some people off. I think part of it is because it highlights their own cowardice - they don’t want to wear it but haven’t the nerve to go out without it. I tell people now I have a rare condition, it’s called CSIT, it stands for common sense and independent thinking, and believe me it’s a rare commodity around here, I just didn’t realise how rare!
The ‘covid cult’ also reminded me of the early days of the Troubles, especially Bloody Sunday, when a wave of collective insanity seemed to grip the population and which I’ve seen again this year. The change in society was palpable after Bloody Sunday, you could almost taste the anger and hate. Northern Ireland descended into darkness and fear, paranoia and brutality reigned, and every nut job with a grudge had an outlet in which to exercise it. There were also those who took advantage of the anger and the nut jobs, and used them for their own ends, financially and politically. The fear generated then still haunts NI, (they haven’t gone away you know) I see it when I post anything critical about Sinn Fein on Facebook, and it is collectively ignored.
People have remarked privately, that they thought I would be burned out or shot after my letters to the paper. I really didn’t care and knew they wouldn’t because what I have realised is that, underneath it all, Sinn Fein and the rest of them are just another bunch of cowards, who are just as corrupt as the rest and always were. If the last year has shown me anything, it is that all the ‘hard’ men around here are nothing more than a shower of gutless wonders. Pathetic!
Anyway, getting back to the books, I’m reading Carl Sagan’s Contact at the moment, (and hoping for a worm hole to open up to another galaxy!). I had started it before Lent but set it aside to read the Harry Potter’s. I will then get back to some of the heavier stuff which is starting to pile up. Next up is Solzhenitsyn’s, The Gulag Archipelago, for some real insights into life under Stalin and Nietzsche’s, Beyond Good and Evil.
It was good to take that time away from the world and switch off from all the hysteria and misery, especially when the government denies you the right to live your life. There’s another year gone which I’ll never get back. Man cannot live for work alone and neither can I.
The fear is also starting to recede and I can see people beginning to question themselves and their actions. The media are still doing their best to ramp it up, with all eyes on India, but with a bit of sunshine and people getting out and about again, the tensions are definitely easing. Well done too, to all who turned out to march last week in London, it was great to see, especially for those of us living in the outer reaches with little or no support.
When you look back at history and read the literature, whether fictional or not, from the Roman Empire to the present day, you wonder why tyrants never learn and continue with their insane plans for world domination and human enslavement. Because, it doesn’t matter how successful they are initially, in the end, empires always fall and their leaders die, whether it’s Josef Stalin, Mao or Lord Voldemort. Could someone please tell the Rothschilds/ Rockefellers, George Soros , Henry Kissinger, Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, the Democrats, the Zionists and Xi Jinping? It could save us all a lot of time and trouble, and spare us a lot of pain and misery.
Enslavement is not sustainable in the long term, not matter how brutal they make it. Eventually, some people tire of it and decide to fight back for freedom, to die on their feet rather than live on their knees. What is the point of a life, if you cannot live it as a free human being, especially when none of us are going to be here very long anyway!
The one factor that could have stopped Mao and Stalin was the people, if people had not complied with the orders and stood together, they could have done nothing. Because there are always more of us, than there are of them.
I watched a lecture of Dr Jordan Peterson’s recently where he talked about what a miracle it was that we existed, and how many pairs of males and females it took to successfully mate and produce a healthy child over thousands of millennium for us to be here now. Our ancestors in Europe have lived through the rise and fall of many empires, the Black Death, the Inquisition, famine, starvation, invasions and wars, and here we are cringing in fear with our face nappies, over a flu that has a 99.97% recovery rate. Just think about that for a moment then, grow a pair, take that rag off your face and man up, ffs!
Vivir con miedo es como vivir a medias!
I was trying to get my painting muscles going again as I haven't painted anything in months and tried my hand at this still life. It looks much larger in the photo but it is only A4. I also wanted to share another passage from Mervyn Levy's book, which I felt was pertinent -
Humanity is notoriously indolent and to effect change, inevitably requires effort, such effort as only the relatively few enlightened ones are prepared to make: at least initially. Enlightenment in itself is not the prerogative of the few: it is the lodestar which all may follow who are prepared to practise the arts of criticism and analysis. Every convention should be periodically subjected to the most searching scrutiny and when it is found wanting, it should be jettisoned. Yet...few people are willing to effect change, or even to question the nature or the validity of the existing status quo. Until the reader has purged his mind of existing prejudices and preconceptions, until he has liberated his intellect from the chains of those constricting thought patterns that precondition and so limit...the possibilities of (in this case) painting.
At present, how many of us enter adulthood equipped to think, to feel, or even to see creatively. We live by proxy, taking on trust conception and ideologies, systems of thought and of action, in whatever the field, that are founded, not upon our own unique experiences but upon those that come to us at least second-hand.
I was trying to upload this a file but it was too large so I've copied the link to it. It is scientific study from 2005 on the success of Chloroquine in treating Sars coronavirus infections. It shows that the information on chloroquine was readily available and known about in treating sars infections as far back as 2005, 16 years ago, so why was it not used this time around and why are they insisting on vaccination?
I'm not a big fan of royalty but I did watch Prince Philip's funeral on Saturday as it was still an historical event and, as royal's go, Queen Elizabeth has to be admired in how she has conducted herself throughout her life.
The music, I have to say, was absolutely beautiful and very moving. I was glad I tuned in just for that alone.
It must have galled the gossips and scum media to have seen William and Harry walking and talking together afterwards and not a sign of tension between them.
However, the whole occasion was marred for me by the bloody masks. Why in God's name was the queen made to wear a mask? At 95 years of age and sitting alone masked at the funeral of the man she loved, who was her partner for over 60 years, where was the humanity? Johnson and Hancock should be flogged for what they have done to this country.
I don't really have much of an opinion on Prince Philip, he was known for his straight-talking and sense of humour, and enjoyed a joke. Sadly, there aren't more like him in positions of power, especially with all the humourless, politically-correct and self-righteous pontificate's in the world today. It was laughable to listen to the media fawning all over him now, when they hounded him on many occasions and called for his removal from state duties for some of his past remarks. Do they really think we have forgotten? Give it a week or two and no doubt the muck-rakers will be back at it.
Last year I talked about how the west was bankrupt and that part of this 'scamdemic' was to cover this. Here is an update on the world's finances, take 15 mins and watch it because there is a huge crash coming. The IMF and the Fed are printing money like confetti and there are hard times ahead. Please watch and share.
Well, it was an interesting few weeks switching off from the world, although, it is difficult when you still have to go to work every day and interact with others. The only way to really do it is to have a place away from everything, where you can actually sit in peace and quiet, like Henry David Thoreau in Walden - Life in the Woods, but I don’t have access to that type of land, unfortunately. Self-sufficiency, far from the madding crowd, I can but dream.
About 100 years ago, radio was invented, prior to that, the only noise you would have heard in your daily life was other people talking. Music would only have been heard if there was an occasion that called for it, be it a party, concert, wedding or ceili. Life would mostly have been quiet and silence easy to access. Modern life is never silent, it drones on 24 hours a day, seven days a week, without respite. Television, movies and music have intruded into our lives and brains, and there are a thousand voices competing to be heard in my head alone, even when sitting quietly; memories, lines from songs, scenes from movies, tv programmes, all vying for space in a place that is already overcrowded and noisy.
When you stand back from the noise for a while, you realise that most of it is meaningless, without purpose or substance, especially the TV. Mindless ‘entertainment’, soulless fodder being fed to the masses with the lowest common denominator as a guide.
Taking a break from it all allows you to adjust your perspective and when I look now at the overall picture, all I see is corruption. We live in a world based on lies and deceit, and sadly, a population happy to play along if it means they don’t have to bother thinking for themselves.
Everything is a lie, absolutely everything that we were told to believe in growing up is a lie and I’m not just talking about Santa Claus. The ‘greatest story ever told’ is exactly that, a story, another manufactured piece of Roman propaganda to quell the rebellious Jews and exert control over them and the people. I had actually thought that Jesus did exist although, I never believed in a virgin birth or resurrection, but now I find out that he never existed at all and was the product of some imaginative scholar working for Rome. (I'll expand on this another day) I have to say there is a great freedom to be had from being able to completely shed the diktats and guilt-tripping of Christianity. No more turn the other cheek or forgiveness here!
And it is the same for everything, they have been lying for centuries, not just decades.
Voting is, I suppose, another lie, we have the semblance of change but it is merely window dressing and the elite still pull the strings behind the scenes. And it is not just religion and politics that is riddled with lies - the same goes for our ‘health’ service and never more so than now. It’s really the pharmaceutical industry manipulating government and the medical profession to make and keep us ill. They have been giving us all the wrong dietary advice for decades and disdain any alternative approach to health, except one that involves the chemical products of their industry and makes money.
We don’t have a health service any more, we have an illness maintenance service based on medication and lots of it, which is now pushing for vaccination for everyone, for everything. But it is too easy to just blame big pharma and government, there has to be a degree of personal responsibility and too many people think that their health is something the doctor takes care of.
For example, type 2 diabetes is controllable through diet so why are people with type 2 not referred to a dietitian or nutritionist. I know several people with this condition and one of them is on 15 different medications a day, some for thyroid, kidney and blood pressure problems, all related to the diabetes. But not once have they been told to modify their diet other than a vague ‘watch your carbs’ when, time and again, it has been shown that a high fat, high protein diet is better than a low fat, high carb diet.
I am sick of the lies, the propaganda and the ‘messiah’ complexes of the wealthy who cannot leave us in peace to live our short lives. What angers me most about this whole covid scam, along with all the others, is the stress and fear that have been deliberately generated and with absolute malice aforethought, and all to make money for people who have far too much of it already. I mean, does Bill Gates really need another 20 billion so he can buy another ugly jumper?
Anyway, at this point, I have lost complete faith in everything. I see a world where corruption is endemic and so widespread that it is almost impossible for us to attempt to end it while the majority stand like cows at gates mooing along. The majority, unfortunately, seem to be happy with their imprisonment with no consideration for the fact that their complicity is destroying freedom for the rest of us. (I’m basing this on the reports that the Conservatives seem to be set to win the Hartlepool by-election, I hope the polls are wrong).
Back in 1930’s Germany, if the Jews had fought back when they were removed from public life and denied the right to go to parks/theatres and their businesses destroyed, they could not have moved them into ghettoes, if they had fought back against the ghettoes, they could not have forced them to wear the yellow star, if they had objected to the ghettoes and the stars, they could not have proceeded to moving them to ‘work’ camps.
If we hadn’t accepted shutting down businesses, they could not have ordered us to wear a mask. If we hadn’t complied with the mask, they could not enforce a vaccine, if we hadn’t taken the vaccine they could not begin to consider enforcing a ‘temporary’ vaccination passport. (Temporary, like 3 weeks to save the NHS!) Also, the implications of this are not being taken seriously at all. What about the right to privacy and confidentiality regarding medical treatment? What about the Geneva Convention and the Nuremburg Code that was put in place to stop medical treatments being forced on anyone? What right does the government and big tech/pharma corporations have to deny us our rights to freedom of choice, freedom of movement, freedom to personal autonomy? And when this is all put in place, what is the next step going to be? Social scores like China that restrict your ability to live and work even more?
I know what’s coming, I’ve done my research, we have learned nothing from history and those who do not learn the lessons of history are condemned to repeat them, and that seems to be exactly where we are heading. Medical fascism is being implemented and there is barely a word of dissent.
What sickens me more, is the ‘allegedly’ smart people who won’t admit or even look at the information because their egos could not conceive that they could be, or are being, played and deceived. The elderly, who are not ‘tech’ savvy, I can forgive but the wilfully ignorant, I cannot and will not.
If you are complying, you are sleepwalking into a totalitarian/fascist technocracy and dragging the rest of us with you. However, there is a window of opportunity for the people of Britain to register their dissent against this with the May elections. I would ask you, for the sake of freedom, to not vote for any of the main parties and give your support to those who oppose this lockdown. I would also ask, if you care anything for freedom, to take off the f*cking mask, start today and make a stand for freedom and humanity, if not for your own sake, then for the sake of future generations.
I haven’t worn a mask at all, it really isn’t that big of a deal and if anyone gives you grief about it, tell them you are exempt or to f*ck off, which is easily done too, the choice is yours. You are not obliged to disclose your private health information to anyone, and it is not legally enforceable. And if the police stop you, ask them to show you what statute it comes under because there is none. It is a ministerial directive with no basis in law and stories about arrests are just that, stories, to try and scare you into complying. Take it off today and breathe the air. Your children and grandchildren will thank you.
'We have ceased even to make our own pleasures in the context of the family circle, preferring to squat in the sty of contentment, luxuriously appointed with every soul-killing device - for that is what the modern ‘civilized’ home has become – while the mind slips cosily into the slime of ‘entertainment’, softening and crumbling beneath the dead caresses of radio and television, until we are left with a nation of cows at gates staring with blank eyes into nothing.-
Rather prescient, I think.
There is a Haiku competition at work so I submitted a few and thought I would share:
The blind do not see
The beauty in the garden
Eyes without windows
A life lived in fear
Worrying about dying
We forget to live
And my favourite of the three -
I closed the door to
Keep death from entering, like
Canute by the sea.
With Lent beginning this week, I am going to be having an all-media detox. I have already deactivated Twitter and shut down Facebook. I turned my radio off last March and the TV has been turned off for most of the last 4 weeks but will be going completely off on Wednesday. I’m not sure if I will be posting on the blog at all, I have been ‘called’ to silence and a period of quiet reflection and I’m not sure if the blog is included. I don’t think it is but as I am stepping back from everything else, I might not be posting as much but I will still be writing, I’ll see how it goes.
If anyone is fed up with the lockdown and would like to fight back, but do not know what to do, then maybe you could try a ‘silent’ Lent too. Turning off the media is one way you can protest without putting your head in the way of some overly aggressive police officer or allowing some retail Nazi to hound you over a mask. The media need us more than we need them and imagine how it would be if we all shut it down for 6 weeks, maybe even forever. Who knows, it might be the best decision we ever make.
You could also take some time and complain to the Advertising Standards Authority regarding some of the government adverts/propaganda. I sent in 2 complaints recently, one in relation to the ‘Look them in the eye’ ad, and it was a fairly straightforward process. And, yes, I can look them straight in the eye! Can Boris Johnson look us in the eye and tell us the truth? I seriously doubt it.
The media take up so much of our time and attention and what do we get in return, lies, stress, anxiety, censorship and conflict. Do we really need that in our lives? Well, I certainly don’t and I have better things to do with my time, and more productive things to give my attention to.
You could also write to your MP or local Assembly/Council member. The council elections are on in May, in England, and nothing will shift a politician quicker than fear of losing their seat. The elections in N. Ireland have been postponed until next year so, as far as I am concerned, once May comes around their term of office is up, and they have no legitimate authority to dictate to anyone. Who gave them the right to take away our democratic and electoral rights anyway?
I’m also not going to be buying anything other than the bare necessities, food and petrol, I won’t be doing any online shopping. I don’t buy from Amazon, although, I have done in the past but I won’t again. I will be shopping in my local shops only, which I have been doing for most of the last year, and only went to a larger supermarket if I couldn’t get what I needed locally.
I also have a few projects organised for myself, art, knitting, gardening and writing which will keep me occupied and, of course, I am still working.
I’ve been reading more and just finished a couple of books. Matthew McConaghey’s, Greenlights and Out of Isak Dinesen in Africa by Linda Donelson. Matthew McConaghey’s book was enjoyable enough but I would have liked more detail around the events in his life and, maybe, a bit more reflection on how he felt about them looking back. It is however, soooo Matthew - alright, alright alrightttt!
Out of Isak Dinesen was a well-researched and thoroughly good read and one I would read again. I had read Out of Africa but was frustrated by the lack of comprehensive detail around her relationships and the events in her life, a bit like Greenlights. This, however, was very detailed and I loved every minute of it, the film is a poor shadow of this interesting and remarkable woman’s life and I would like to learn more about her life after Africa and her writings.
I haven’t finished The Great Reset yet, mainly because the whole thing is based on 2 false premises, one, that the world is in a ‘climate crisis’ and two, that the world is over-populated. False rhetoric and solutions/policies based on lies and the financial interests of a vested minority, for which we will, ultimately, pay.
*The following article may be offensive to some, for which I do not apologise. It is your choice to read it.
** I realised the last paragraph had not copied over and has now been added. 17.2.21
And then, one day you wake up! I mean, we wake up every day, if we are lucky, but this was not waking up literally, it was waking up metaphorically. I had thought I was awake before now, although, when I think about it now, it actually feels more like being reborn.
Well, it was a funny old week, last week. I was sitting at home last Monday, I had been out walking on the Saturday before and as I crossed the road, I broke into a run, as the traffic was coming faster than anticipated, when something popped in the back of my leg and the pain shot up through it. I hobbled back to the house, put a heavy elastic bandage on it and rested it for the rest of the day. I phoned Out of Hours the next day, as my sister said it sounded like a torn tendon or ligament and that I should go to A&E to get it looked at, as it could be serious and put me out of action for months. My aunt had died on the Saturday night too, and there was no way I was going to sit in A&E for maybe 4 hours or more on a Sunday.
So, there I was on the Monday, I couldn’t settle myself to reading or doing anything, and thinking things over, when a feeling of tremendous peace came over me, it reminded me of that passage in the Bible where is says, ‘the scales fell from his eyes and he could see again’, that is what it was like. This is a very short version of what happened, there were other things going on too, but in the space of 10 seconds, everything changed, my eyes were opened and the things I thought mattered or were important, no longer are. Just like that! As Tommy Cooper used to say!
‘I can see clearly now, the pain has gone!’ (My God song!) My eyes have been opened and I can now see the absurdity of the world and humanity. And the world was never more absurd than it is at present. Take this whole covid scamdemic, it’s a joke, it really is. Grown men and women walking around in fear of a flu (or a contaminated vaccine, there do seem to be 2 factors at work here, from what I can make out). And where are the men? Really, where have all the men gone? Are there are none left but these snivelling gutless wonders, big girls blouses and the sad psychologically castrated shadows of their ancestral selves? And if there is anyone reading this who knows Sam Smith, or even is Sam Smith, would someone please tell him, ‘You’re a bloke, you might be gay but you are still a f*cking bloke! And you will never be a ‘mummy! GET A GRIP!’ And the rest of you, grow a pair, ffs!
Let me tell you something, and I’m saying it right to you, if you are walking around with a mask on, you are a twat, you look like a twat and you are a twat! And if you are walking around with a mask, a visor and a pair of latex gloves (like the twat, I met out walking 3 weeks ago) then you really need to take a long look at yourself. If you are out and about today with your mask on, just take a minute and look around you, open your eyes and look at the absurdity of this entire situation, it is ridiculous, insane! THE EMPEROR ISN’T WEARING ANY CLOTHES! WAKE THE F*CK UP!
This is the problem with humanity in general, we are so up our own asses, we think the world revolves around us, a collective unconscious belief left over from when we believed that the earth was the centre of the universe, and everything revolved around it. The source of all this narcissism is the ego, we feed it with all the nonsense we believe about ourselves. But I’m sorry to have to tell you, (actually, I’m not a bit sorry) and this is for the Black Lives Matter campaign too, you are really not that important and your life is not that big of a deal to anyone else, you might matter a bit to your family and a few of your friends but if you dropped dead tomorrow, someone else would be doing your job within weeks, if not days or hours, the world would still go on, and within an couple of generations, there would not be one person around who actually even knew you personally. You would just be a face in a faded picture, or an image saved on an icloud somewhere, floating in cyber space where no one will ever even look at it, until the day the AI delete it as a dormant account to free up some space on a hard drive – and that would be the end of that! Game over!
The thing is, I don’t even care if any of this offends you because I just don’t care anymore! I don’t give a flying damn about Covid, or vaccines, or Rat Handjob, or Fat Boris, or virtue-signalling twats in their masks, to be honest! Take the vaccine because frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn!
I feel as if I have been let out of prison and it is wonderful! I think I have been working towards this moment for years, to be free of care, seeing the world and people for the reality that they are. Why did I ever care about any of it, or any of these people? It seems so foreign and strange to me now, and it is great! I have to say, I am probably going to be a whole lot more offensive from here on, I mean, I’ve already told several people to f*ck off in the last year already, well, I’ll be worse now because I JUST DON’T F*CKING CARE! Yeeehaaaa!
So, I am now going to bury my head in the sand and pretend, in a little world built from my own narcissism and cowardice, where justice only exists if it is part of a screaming mob, where science is bought and paid for and evidence means nothing, where all government ministers are paragons of virtue and must always be believed, where the savage has been civilised by Western culture for his own good, where the truth is a lie, and a lie the truth, where I am the centre of my own universe and care nothing for the troubles and woes of others and 2+2=5.
Now that the Biden puppet has been installed in the White House, we can see that all the reports and stories of ‘this is going to happen’ or ‘that is going to happen’ were just that, stories. We live in a world of fake news, misinformation, disinformation and outright lies, designed to keep us divided and confused, and making it more and more difficult to find out where the truth lies. This is not a recent development, they have been doing it, and getting away with it, for decades.
Like the ‘climate change’ fraud, even science cannot be depended upon any more to provide the truth. While the media screams about climate change, the powers behind the media are stomping around the world starting wars to gain control of all the oil, ie: Libya and Iraq, and let’s keep our eyes on the continuing propaganda against Iran. If they were really concerned about the environment, why do they need to control the oil, are we not moving to a ‘greener’ world?
The corruption sadly, is endemic in most governments, corporations and main stream media, and means that we cannot rely on the news to report honestly, or provide us with the truth, or even gives us some context or perspective on it. Instead, the media fuels the fires of fraud and today’s news bears more resemblance to the ‘sad’ story of an X-Factor contestant, playing on the over-hyped emotions of the audience, than an objective reporting of local, national and world events, or real investigative journalism. Something, that has long since died a death in the mainstream.
We are being played, day and daily, and it’s not just the news, television advertising is a constant barrage of the poor, sick and desperate trying to guilt you into parting with your hard earned, to ‘charities’ that pay CEO salaries of £100K per annum. It’s not charity any more, it’s business.
Social media too, is anything but, it is another arm of the corrupt, designed to fuel division and, as I have said many times, while we are down here arguing amongst ourselves and distracted, whether it is over Brexit, BLM or masks, they are sitting back laughing and, usually, making a fortune at our expense.
The worst thing about it is that it is our own governments who are doing this to us. They are engaged in a propaganda war against their own citizens, at the behest of globalist corporations and bankers, to deceive, confuse and repress us. The deceit has been enabled through a web of worldwide corruption that is prepared to use blackmail, black ops, false flags, psyops, propaganda, threats and murder that fuel the interests of this global elite. Is there a government anywhere in the western world who could be trusted now? Our governments do not work for us and have not worked for, or represented our interests, for a long time, our ‘democracy’ is a lie. As George Carlin remarked, ‘if voting made any difference, it would be illegal’.
However, it is too easy to just blame the government and the media. This last year has been eye-opening; watching people’s reactions to the ‘plandemic’ has been interesting, to say the least, and has revealed a lot about them and the kind of people they are.
The drama queens love it, it makes them feel alive, they get off on all the fear and hype, and just love to talk on the phone with friends about how terrible it all is, emoting at every possible opportunity, over all the ‘poor people who have died’. They can’t get enough of it, especially if they have a ‘vulnerable relative’ who they can be ‘very concerned’ about, self-righteously pontificating that they wear their mask, to ‘protect others’. But even better is if they have an underlying condition that could make them vulnerable too. They’ll have their friends ringing up all the time to check they are ok, because people like this always have friends like them, who love the drama of it all, and who would not miss an opportunity to virtue-signal to the crowd. But the biggest thrill of all, is if they know someone who has ‘died of covid’, it doesn’t matter that they were 85 with dementia and several co-morbidities, only ‘covid’ counts. They wouldn’t miss the evening news for love or money (well…maybe for money…) feeding like parasitical statisticians on the numbers, for the ghoulish thrill of it all! WOOOOOHH!
Then there are those who are aware that it is all hype, but are playing it to suit themselves, those who can’t come in to work as they are afraid they might get the virus, and they have a ‘vulnerable relative’ or a ‘child with asthma’. The teaching profession is playing this one, big time, helped by the Unions who are using it to play party politics, and GP’s surgeries, who are offloading their work to the Emergency Departments. Each with their own agendas.
Then we have the hypochondriac’s - at last, all their dreams have come true! A deadly virus! A pandemic! They have Contagion on a loop on Netflix, to see what is going to happen next as they run to get tested for the tenth time in a fortnight, taking their temperature daily and googling their symptoms to see if any new ones have been added! Those with Munchausen’s Syndrome are also in this group. (Although, I seriously think the entire pharmaceutical industry and Bill Gates should be checked for Munchausen’s Syndrome by Proxy. Gates should also be psychologically assessed for a ‘Messiah’ complex too while they’re at it!)
Then there are the merchants of doom, for them it is the end of the world, everything is going to hell, whether it was predicted in the Bible, the Mayan calendar or by Nostradamus, it doesn’t matter, it’s all going to end soon! They are also big into the ‘climate’ crisis or anything that allows them to wallow in the misery of doom, gloom and disaster. Even when confronted with reality, they refuse to acknowledge it. I met one of these in the graveyard a few weeks ago. He struck up a conversation and asked if all the new graves were from covid. I said no, none of them were, as I knew most of them, (the advantages of small town living,) and the majority were just old age and cancer. But he launched into a whole ‘it’s a terrible time for the world, it feels like the end of day’s’ (he must have watched the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie the night before). I remarked that it was pretty bad in World War 2 and we came through that, but he couldn’t be convinced and went on with his doomsday scenarios. I made my excuses and left.
But what he demonstrated is that, like all these types, they like to wallow in their delusions, they prefer the lie and are not really interested in the truth, the truth is too boring, or doesn’t suit the agenda or their own narcissistic viewpoint. They want a truth that feeds into their delusion because to look for the real truth and challenge the narrative would take effort. And even if someone else is making that effort, they ignore it because to question one lie, may mean that they may have to start questioning everything, and that would be too much effort. It might mean standing up to the crowd or their own family, it might make them an outsider, or put them in the firing line for the insult of the moment ‘conspiracy theorist’. It might even mean standing alone, something the majority of people are too terrified to even contemplate doing. It’s much ‘easier’ to just agree with everyone and not even try to think or act for yourself.
I’m reading M Scott Peck’s, Further Along the Road Less Travelled, again, and in it he talks about evil. He goes back to the Genesis story where Adam and Eve eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. As he points out, this story is about consciousness, about growing up and, in doing so, how we have to take personal responsibility for our choices. Becoming fully conscious is not an easy thing to do, it usually begins when we enter our teenage years, which is why teenagers can be difficult to deal with, because it is then that they start to question their parents, society and their values and belief systems. This can be especially difficult if they have parents who have never questioned anything and can cause conflict within the family. Some, courageously, continue on that journey throughout life, whereas many others don’t and bend to the will and expectations of family and society – taking the easy way out, which is basically making the choice between growing up and remaining immature. Scott Peck talks about evil as ultimately being laziness. Adam and Eve were too lazy to engage with God, they made no effort to question or debate why they were not allowed to eat from the tree, which is what a grown up would have done, instead, they took the easy way out and that failure saw them driven out of paradise.
I see that same laziness in so many around me, the failure to challenge the narrative of the government, the unswerving belief that they, and the BBC, would not lie. It suits their egos and agendas. These are the same people who, two years ago, were screaming ‘liar’ at Boris Johnston over Brexit, and now believe every false statement and piece of manipulated data he gives out. And there is no excuse these days when practically everyone is walking about with internet access in their hand. But that would require an effort of will and it is easier to just bleat along with the crowd and virtue-signal in a public show than to make the effort to actually do some research.
With Joe Biden entering the White House last week, I had a bit of a crisis and considered shutting down the blog. I thought, ‘What’s the point?’ especially now when I can see how deep and widespread the web of deceit is, and how willing my fellow countrymen are to remain tangled in it. I can see that loss of faith online, as well, in the posts from friends on social media. I thought about the number one fan and found that, that too, was just another lie. Like many others, I lost faith and wondered who I could trust and went through a sort of ‘dark night of the soul’. It was not helped by the fact that my most beloved aunt has been lying in a hospital bed for last 6 weeks, after suffering a stroke, and is now in the last days of her life. I have not been able to see her. Her own children were not even allowed in, due to covid restrictions. Where has our compassion and humanity gone, that the dying are denied the comfort of having their family around them?
I look at what we have become in the space of a few months and I despair. I will never again wonder at how Nazi Germany happened, at how ordinary men and women took part in some of the most heinous acts against their fellow man. I have seen it unfold in front of me every day, not to those extremes, yet, but I have no doubt about how easily it could change, when I see calls for quarantine camps for those who refuse to be vaccinated, or for them to be refused medical treatment, work or entry into shops. Egged on, as ever, with a daily diet of propaganda, spoon-fed to the masses by corrupt politicians, and a corrupt and complicit media.
However, I got over myself and decided to continue with the blog, it is important to me and there are quite a few people reading it every day. I’m still not sure why I bother maybe, I’m just ‘thran’ as they say here or maybe, I just want to annoy the self-righteous, I sure seem to piss them off a lot. But I have decided to put my faith in a higher power, whatever that is, trust myself and, it feels like the right thing to do. The search for truth was never more important than it is now and even if I get it wrong at times, or make a complete fool of myself, which seems to bother other’s around here more than it bothers me, at least, I will be able to look my granddaughters in the eye and say that ‘Yes, I stood up for freedom, I made the effort’. Will you?
If this insanity is to end, (if anal swabs and triple mask don’t start to wake you up, then you are beyond help) then it is up to us to end it, no-one is coming to save us, and if you keep ‘going along to get along’, then you are sleepwalking into a totalitarian technocracy and dragging the rest of us with you. You can stick your head in the sand, keep feeding off the drama and fear, indulging your ego and narcissism, or you can make the effort; research, call out the lies, make a stand, if not for freedom, then, at least, for common sense and a proportional response. Scott Peck says that good mental health is ‘dedication to reality, at all costs’. It isn’t easy to do what you know is right, it may be painful, you may find you are alone, friends and members of your own family may turn against you. But, there are bigger issues here and the time is rapidly approaching when we may all need to grow up fast and start taking responsibility for what is going on. The future of humanity may depend on it and your children and grand-children may thank you someday, the choice is yours.
