A closer look at the class that mocks.
Why is it that otherwise perfectly intelligent, thoughtful and rationally minded people baulk at the suggestion that sociopaths are conspiring to manipulate and deceive them? And why will they defend this ill-founded position with such vehemence?
History catalogues the machinations of liars, thieves, bullies and narcissists and their devastating effects. In modern times too, evidence of corruption and extraordinary deceptions abound.
We know, without question, that politicians lie and hide their connections and that corporations routinely display utter contempt for moral norms – that corruption surrounds us.
We know that revolving doors between the corporate and political spheres, the lobbying system, corrupt regulators, the media and judiciary mean that wrongdoing is practically never brought to any semblance of genuine justice.
We know that the press makes noise about these matters occasionally but never pursues them with true vigour.
We know that in the intelligence services and law enforcement wrongdoing on a breathtaking scale is commonplace and that, again, justice is never forthcoming.
We know that governments repeatedly ignore or trample on the rights of the people, and actively abuse and mistreat the people. None of this is controversial.
So exactly what is it that conspiracy deniers refuse to acknowledge with such fervour, righteousness and condescension? Why, against all the evidence, do they sneeringly and contemptuously defend the crumbling illusion that ‘the great and good’ are up there somewhere, have everything in hand, have only our best interests at heart, and are scrupulous, wise and sincere? That the press serves the people and truth rather than the crooks? That injustice after injustice result from mistakes and oversights, and never from that dread word: conspiracy?
What reasonable person would continue to inhabit such a fantasy world?
The point of disagreement here is only on the matter of scale. Someone who is genuinely curious about the plans of powerful sociopaths won’t limit the scope of their curiosity to, for example, one corporation, or one nation. Why would they? Such a person assumes that the same patterns on display locally are likely to be found all the way up the power food chain. But the conspiracy denier insists this is preposterous.
It is painfully obvious that the pyramidical societal and legal structures that humanity has allowed to develop are exactly the kind of dominance hierarchies that undoubtedly favour the sociopath. A humane being operating with a normal and healthy cooperative mindset has little inclination to take part in the combat necessary to climb a corporate or political ladder.
So what do conspiracy deniers imagine the 70 million or more sociopaths in the world do all day, born into a ‘game’, in which all the wealth and power are at the top of the pyramid, while the most effective attributes for ‘winning’ are ruthlessness and amorality? Have they never played Monopoly?
Sociopaths do not choose their worldview consciously, and are simply unable to comprehend why normal people would put themselves at such an incredible disadvantage by limiting themselves with conscientiousness and empathy, which are as beyond the understanding of the sociopath as a world without them are to the humane being.
All the sociopath need do to win in the game is lie publicly whilst conspiring privately. What could be simpler? In 2021, to continue to imagine that the world we inhabit is not largely driven by this dynamic amounts to reckless naiveté bordering on insanity. Where does such an inadvertently destructive impulse originate?
The infant child places an innate trust in those it finds itself with – a trust which is, for the most part, essentially justified. The infant could not survive otherwise.
In a sane and healthy society, this deep instinct would evolve as the psyche developed. As self-awareness, the cognitive and reasoning abilities and scepticism evolved in the individual, this innate trust impulse would continue to be understood as a central need of the psyche. Shared belief systems would exist to consciously evolve and develop this childish impulse in order to place this faith somewhere consciously – in values and beliefs of lasting meaning and worth to the society, the individual, or, ideally, both.
Reverence and respect for tradition, natural forces, ancestors, for reason, truth, beauty, liberty, the innate value of life, or the initiating spirit of all things, might all be considered valid resting places in which to consciously place our trust and faith – as well as those derived from more formalised belief systems.
Regardless of the path taken to evolve and develop a personal faith, it is the bringing of one’s own consciousness and cognition to this innate impulse that is relevant here. I believe this is a profound responsibility – to develop and cultivate a mature faith – which many are, understandably, unaware of.
What occurs when there is a childish need within us which has never evolved beyond its original survival function of trusting those in our environment who are, simply, the most powerful; the most present and active? When we have never truly explored our own psyches, and deeply interrogated what we truly believe and why? When our motivation for trusting anything or anyone goes unchallenged? When philosophy is left to the philosophers?
I suggest the answer is simple, and that the evidence of this phenomenon and the havoc it is wreaking is all around us: the innate impulse to trust the mother never evolves, never encounters and engages with its counterbalance of reason (or mature faith), and remains forever on its ‘default’ infant setting.
While the immature psyche no longer depends on parents for its well-being, the powerful and motivating core tenet I have described remains intact: unchallenged, unconsidered and undeveloped. And, in a world in which stability and security are distant memories, these survival instincts, rather than being well-honed, considered, relevant, discerning and up to date, remain, quite literally, those of a baby. Trust is placed in the biggest, loudest, most present and undeniable force around, because instinct decrees that survival depends on it.
And, in this great ‘world nursery’, the most omnipresent force is the network of institutions which consistently project an unearned image of power, calm, expertise, concern and stability.
In my view, this is how conspiracy deniers are able to cling to and aggressively defend the utterly illogical fantasy that somehow – above a certain undefined level of the societal hierarchy – corruption, deceit, malevolence and narcissism mysteriously evaporate. That, contrary to the maxim, the more power a person has, the more integrity they will inevitably exhibit. These poor deluded souls essentially believe that where personal experience and prior knowledge cannot fill in the gaps in their worldview – in short, where there is a barred door – mummy and daddy are behind it, working out how best to ensure that their little precious will be comfortable, happy and safe forever.
False Flags on Five Fronts: Sandy Hook, the Boston bombing, Charlottesville, Las Vegas and JFK (2018)
This is the core, comforting illusion at the root of the conspiracy denier’s mindset, the decrepit foundation upon which they build a towering castle of justification from which to pompously jeer at and mock those who see otherwise.
This explains why it is that the conspiracy denier will attack any suggestion that the caregiving archetype is no longer present – that sociopaths are behind the barred door, who hold us all in utter contempt or disregard us completely. The conspiracy denier will attack any such suggestion as viciously as if their survival depended on it – which, in a way, within the makeup of their unconscious and precarious psyche, it does.
Their sense of well-being, of security, of comfort, even of a future at all, is completely (and completely unconsciously) invested in this fantasy. The infant has never matured, and, because they are not conscious of this, other than as a deep attachment to their personal security, they will fiercely attack any threat to this unconscious and central aspect of their worldview.
The tediously common refrain from the conspiracy denier is, ‘there couldn’t be a conspiracy that big’.
The simple retort to such a self-professed expert on conspiracies is obvious: how big?
The biggest ‘medical’ corporations in the world can go for decades treating the settling of court cases as mere business expenses, for crimes ranging from the suppressing of adverse test events to multiple murders resulting from undeclared testing to colossal environmental crimes.
Governments perform the vilest and most unthinkable ‘experiments’ (crimes) on their own people without consequence.
Politicians habitually lie to our faces, without consequence.
And on and on. At what point, exactly, does a conspiracy become so big that ‘they’ just couldn’t get away with it, and why? I suggest it’s at the point where the cognitive ability of the conspiracy denier falters, and their unconscious survival instinct kicks in. The point at which the intellect becomes overwhelmed with the scope of events and the instinct is to settle back into the familiar comforting faith known and cultivated since the first moment one’s lips found the nipple. The faith that someone else is dealing with it – that where the world becomes unknown to us, a powerful and benevolent human authority exists in which we have only to place our faith unconditionally in order to guarantee eternal emotional security.
This dangerous delusion may be the central factor placing humanity’s physical security and future in the hands of sociopaths.
To anyone in the habit of dismissing people who are questioning, investigative and sceptical as tin foil hat wearing, paranoid, science-denying Trump supporters, the question is: what do you believe in? Where have you placed your faith and why? How is it that while no one trusts governments, you appear to trust nascent global governance organisations without question? How is this rational?
If you are placing faith in such organisations, consider that in the modern global age, these organisations, as extraordinarily well presented as they are, are simply grander manifestations of the local versions we know we can’t trust. They are not our parents and demonstrate no loyalty to humane values. There is no reason to place any faith whatsoever in any of them.
If you haven’t consciously developed a faith or questioned why you believe as you do to some depth, such a position might seem misanthropic, but in truth, it is the opposite. These organisations have not earned your trust with anything other than PR money and glossy lies. True power remains, as ever, with the people.
There is a reason why Buddhists strongly advise the placing of one’s faith in the Dharma, or the natural law of life, rather than in persons, and that similar refrains are common in other belief systems.
Power corrupts. And, in the world today, misplaced and unfounded trust could well be one of the greatest sources of power there is.
Massive criminal conspiracies exist. The evidence is overwhelming. The scope of those currently underway is unknown, but there is no reason to imagine, in the new global age, that the sociopathic quest for power or the possession of the resources required to move towards it is diminishing. Certainly not while dissent is mocked and censored into silence by gatekeepers, ‘useful idiots’, and conspiracy deniers, who are, in fact, directly colluding with the sociopathic agenda through their unrelenting attack on those who would shine a light on wrongdoing.
It is every humane being’s urgent responsibility to expose sociopathic agendas wherever they exist – never to attack those who seek to do so.
Now, more than ever, it is time to put away childish things, and childish impulses, and to stand up as adults to protect the future of the actual children who have no choice but to trust us with their lives.
This essay has focussed on what I consider to be the deepest psychological driver of conspiracy denial.
There are certainly others, such as the desire to be accepted; the avoidance of knowledge of, and engagement with, the internal and external shadow; the preservation of a positive and righteous self-image: a generalised version of the ‘flying monkey’ phenomenon, in which a self-interested and vicious class protect themselves by coalescing around the bully; the subtle unconscious adoption of the sociopathic worldview (e.g. ‘humanity is the virus’); outrage addiction/superiority complex/status games; a stunted or unambitious intellect that finds validation through maintaining the status quo; the dissociative protective mechanism of imagining that crimes and horrors committed repeatedly within our lifetime are somehow not happening now, not ‘here’; and plain old fashioned laziness and cowardice.
My suggestion is that, to some degree, all of these build on the foundation of the primary cause I’ve outlined here.

Facebook Data From More Than 500 Million Users Found Online
By The Associated Press
April 4, 2021 Updated:
NEW YORK—Details from more than 500 million Facebook users have been found available on a website for hackers.
While the information appears to be several years old, it’s another example of the vast amount of information collected by Facebook and other social media sites, and the limits to how secure that information is.
The availability of the data set was first reported by Business Insider. According to that publication, it has information from 106 countries, including phone numbers, Facebook IDs, full names, locations, birthdates, and email addresses.

Facebook has been grappling with data security issues for years. In 2018, the social media giant disabled a feature that allowed users to search for one another via phone number following revelations that the political firm Cambridge Analytica had accessed information on up to 87 million Facebook users without their knowledge or consent.
In December 2019, a Ukrainian security researcher reported finding a database with the names, phone numbers, and unique user IDs of more than 267 million Facebook users—nearly all U.S.-based—on the open internet. It’s unclear if the current data dump is related to this database.
“This is old data that was previously reported on in 2019,” the Menlo Park, California-based company said in a statement. “We found and fixed this issue in August 2019.”
Me…As the average American continues to expose their life on Facegarbage VOLUNTARILY and is now taking an intrusive jab that will very likely change their DNA and make them an automaton and wondering what happened to their right of privacy. “Like me on Facegarbage”…I need to be loved.
Another example of this world turning to shite and the boot jack on our heads. Of course, this is the UK where they gave up their damn guns. Everyone cries about their rights being taken away, but will not take a stand to save them.
Even in Suwannee, where there’s a Baptist church on every block, the churches are closed.
Here’s one helluva leak. Now, if someone can explain WHY this is happening that does not include some nefarious plan via the black hats or some rescue plan via the white hats, please do so. Let’s face it, something is in the wind to which we peasants, the unwashed and mis-informed are not privy….even though we are footing the bill for the whole damn charade. Eff that cubed!
Do not watch this if you are eating. This is the clearest of several videos on 153news.net that clearly show worms in the mask. Speak Romanian? Really not necessary…the pics speak for themselves.
If privacy is unimportant to you along with your Constitutional rights (Ninth Amendment), continue to use Instagram. They share your info even more than Facecrap. Hey, keep making it easier for them…good move. I’m sure they appreciate YOUR help. You will eventually get a Certificate of Appreciation. Yeah, I know, you have nothing to hide….just as your 1st Amendment rights do not matter because you have nothing to say, eh?
Sarah makes some very sensible points. One Tweet and Harry’s loses its mind . One Tweet. What could possibly be underneath such an unwarranted decision? And what’s with all these super shaving devices? Do I really need a blade that lasts for a years and then needs a birthday party? Or one that has so many blades that it could mince an onion (and maybe my face). Isn’t life complicated enough as it is? Even straight razors need to be sharpened. And why would a razor blade company slit it’s own throat by condemning the very masculinity that produces hormones that grow face hair? I’ll schtick with Schick!
At least we have one judge with some common and CONSTITUTIONAL sense. Thank you, Judge Thapar!
Court Rules Shawnee State University Violated Professor’s 1st Amendment Rights by Ordering Him to Use Students’ Preferred Pronouns
The author of the essay asks a basic and necessary question what are the motives and driving force of persons he refers to as <conspiracy, but immediately introduces another problem in regard to mockery. The author needs to reflect about methodology. How to formulate a question. How to keep on the ball.
A blog is a blog and in its very nature, the conversation will branch off in many directions. This is good, as it allows an open conversation unfettered by boundaries; although, my personal focus, considering we are very close to losing this country to lies, deception, criminality and an ongoing irrefutably no longer soft coup, I prefer to focus on the pragmatic side of this discussion and not on topics like aliens, gematria and other topics that serve at this juncture as distractions. Let me make it clear this is only MY OPINION and only MY path (is it really necessary to add that caveat each time I post?) lest I again be labeled the arbiter of this board.
Stand and deliver!
It’s what Will does…
…science-denying Trump supporters, …
Sure the democrats are crooks,
but Trump just the other wing of the same bird, a crook too
The first time I saw Jim on the TV News… the news-spewer was taking out the hatchets and sharpening them. He tried to assassinate Jim’s character over your 911 observations. He was un-phased. It was the first time I ever heard the scam exposed. Of course the talking head tried to discredit you and because I was still asleep, his information barely registered. But it gave you name recognition the next time I encountered one of your videos. I stop and took a little more notice.
By bizarre coincidence I ran into a man early to mid 2000s I went through the usual process of getting to know someone brand new to you. I asked what he had been up to lately and he unabashedly said “I just got out of jail”… I asked the charge and he said “my wife’s murder”… flattened by that startling revelation, I thought I would downshift with “what kind of work do you do?”… Director of Video Communications for FEMA… Really… what was your last project? “I was called by the Director to get immediately to New York, there’s been a small plane crash at the WTC. But why were they calling me?, I document recovery efforts for earthquakes and other natural disasters and that sounded like FAA territory. When I got to New York, I learned they already had a headquarters set up there the day before the attack.” At the time I had zero interest in 911, I had already put that to bed a month or so after it happened. I really missed a huge opportunity to find out more. The only other thing he said was “The things I saw there didn’t make any sense”.
It was years later when I saw Kurt was in the news and the US Gov’t was trying to extradite him from S.America; over the wife’s murder again. The crazy part was all the Gov’t had to do was wait for Kurt to come back to arrest him no problem. But that didn’t interest them. They wanted to blow up publicity over this extradition and Kurt’s fight to stop it. What evil bastards.
I was watching Dark Outpost just now and I hear Jim will be on the paid for portion. Mind blowing claims like Lady Di and JFK Junior being alive and well and testifying at Gitmo tribunals this fall. Is Truth stranger than fiction? That Bubba and Killery already dead for years now. After they replaced McCartney, all bets are off. Think I mentioned this before… I saw McCartney play a show at Fenway Park in 2010 and it was a fantastic show… lots of Beatles played and $8.75 beers. before and during the show, the most intense chemtrailing I’ve seen in 14 years of watching directly overhead it looked like a lawn mowing pattern with a dozen jets cranking out a new row of spew every minute of the show. God only knows what we were sucking in that evening because these were also some of lowest flying spew machines ever seen
Deny it or not, humanity now faces an EXISTENTIAL THREAT and vast CONSPIRACY OF EVIL. It is of ALIEN origin and nature. LIES and DECEIT have been perpetrated on the American Sheeple by TPTB for decades. These lies [including FALSE FLAGS and MASS “SHOOTINGS”] are the hallmark of Satan, who is also defined [Bible] as the “Great Deceiver” and “Father of lies”. Jim has courageously exposed many of these lies in his collection of books, revealing many pieces of truth to those who have “eyes to see”. It is now TIME TO ACT [POA]!
GS…I agree that Jim is doing a tremendous job in exposing lies and revealing the truth, but I have yet to see him delve seriously into any extraterrestrial alien influence in these matters. I could be incorrect and if so, I am sure he’ll correct me.
Jim is doing [more than] his fair share! Others must chip in [me and others, like Don and several others here – and throughout America]. One man, brilliant as he is, cannot be expected to bear the entire burden!
GS…I am sure you and Don and others here are doing great work in exposing the alien agenda. Carry on.
If the DemonicRATS and their ALIEN MASTERS are not STOPPED DEAD IN THEIR TRACKS [SOON!], THEY will turn America into a GULAG! [long before the 2022 Elections]
The frustrating thing about the 1st amendment is anyone can say most anything without evidence now can they?
You say a “conspiracy of evil” is at hand, which most can agree, indeed. BUT then you say it is of “ALIEN” origin with no evidence or links or even an explanation as if it is a mutually held assumption?? And “Alien” like in foreign invaders from other countries or like in off planet sentient forces??
[I didn’t see any reply from you regarding the Maouri “Reptillian” information and jpg I put up the other day, perhaps you missed it??]
Then you accuse “Satan” of “false flags and mass shootings.” And this time the accusation is against and unprovable religious myth as if you are holding some actual evidence of this beyond faith??
For far too many people who consider themselves “awake,” I find it is often a conditional thing. Being articulate and well-read on the machinations of the political machine, corporate behavior, even actual historical proof of war and social domination efforts is a rewarding task leading to a bigger understanding.
But to conflate unprovable religious myth as if that is fact is found far too often in the so-called “alternative” sites. For me, it leaves me questioning a person’s total understanding of life.
It is like presently I see people comment on the pandemic being a false flag (I agree) but then they rant about the bad Chinese who attacked us?? Ahh, no CV-19 virus has been isolated to date by ANYONE ANYWHERE, so just what was the attack I ask?
The same with all this Satan/God stuff.
I have had a life long interest in religious/spiritual belief and history. I have found that all organized religions are based on unproven man-made “gods” used for power and control over others. They strip humans of sovereign spiritual expression of thanks for the miracle of sentience to be replaced with rule books of fear from made up evils like satan, hell, demons, sin, heaven, vallhalla, etc.
Faith, no matter how sincere, isn’t fact, only fact is fact.
So I agree that there may be some off-planet interference (Aliens) in the natural evolutionary process of humanity. Alexander the Great being chased from the river by Indians on “flying carpets” for instance. Millions of people speaking hundreds of languages from around the world giving similar testamony about close encounters is for sure important.
But for me, the biggest “deciever” in history has been organized religions with an amazing murder/torture/death count to prove their God is the true god.
And for sure, Jim is a true gift to free thinking and truth seeking people everywhere.
Did you read all my comments on Jim’ Blog? Did you watch the William Pawelec interview? Did you watch the Phil Schneider videos? Did you digest the information from Edward Snowden, David Icke, Jeff Rense, Alex Jones, etc. on this topic? Did you watch the film “THEY LIVE”? Did you read “WALKING AMONG US”? Did you carefully study all the information on my  websites, including links? Did you study all the information about ALIENS on the montalk.com website?
I think you have some HOMEWORK to do! AND – there is another, HIGHER category of Truth called SPIRITUAL TRUTH, with which you appear to be totally UNFAMILIAR.It comes to [some of] us by REVELATION – not books or scientific investigation! [The apostle Paul gave witness to having received such KNOWLEDGE while on the road to Damascus].
You have a LONG WAY TO GO before you begin to understand what’s REALLY going on in our world – and so does [even] Jim! 😉
Wow, GodSend, your arrogance is breathtaking. Perhaps you should reconsider the Proverb,
“Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.”
Imparting Truth is not arrogance! Was Jesus arrogant? [the Pharisees and Sadducee thought so – but they were wrong – DEAD WRONG!] Your outrage at my “arrogance” is PHONY, Toni.
Thanks Toni. I have experienced this sort of anger on Black Listed News and other “alt” sites but didn’t expect it here. Wow!
Here is the correct montalk link:
Knowledge is FAR SURPASSED by WISDOM. I believe that the highest state of Knowledge AND Wisdom comes through Christ-Consciousness. That comes [ONLY] through the Grace [unmerited favor] of God. Organized religion is NOT part of this process!
Wisdom is the ability to utilize knowledge. And that characteristic is God given. Absolutely, I agree.
I have a few casual ski pals I call the young Republicans, we are all in our late 50s, ha ha. We ride the first Gondola car ahead of the insane Covidians, one of which was the first one to wear the double masks right after Tony the rat Fauci told him to. They project their fear onto everyone they come in contact with while the Y.R.’s know it’s all bullshit. They also know the election was stolen but that’s as far as they go. During the 10 minute ride I try to move the needle on the fact that Biden’s “presidency” is virtual… not actual… complete with obvious chroma-key flaws that are so obvious it has to be intentional. I told them about the overseas broadcast of the “inauguration” 7 to 10 hours before it was supposed to happen and that further proof of pre-recording was that there was no synch of the times it was broadcast here. I have been able to move the needle with the one woman in the group, but her husband is dyed in the wool conspiracy denier. He dug in his heels when I said nothing is happening at the DC White House and that whomever is playing Biden is doing so from a movie set. I know he does zero digging on his own and won’t even consider what I’m laying on them. But I am not giving up. I will continue with little things like the moment Joe’s Biden’s eyes became slits and you could no longer see his actual eyes.
Ah, a skier. Must be a white supremacist :-)))
Indeed, DC and the whole pandemic Kabuki theater is like something out of a Stephen King novel.
I am a very healthy guy about 25 years your senior and far off the grid. When I drive 50 miles into town it is always a bit sad to see just how many people wear face diapers. The last time I wore a mask was 3 years ago prepping my van to be painted.
In the society of today, especially western society or culture, we are victims of “Human Interruptus”. Many other cultures have rituals in which the child goes through a process to become a man or a woman. The Jews have a bar and bat mitzvah. In that ritual, the child faces fears and works through them to become mature or at least on its way to maturity. And the do it public …in the open. I don’t see that in the west. The Catholics have their communion and confirmation. But, having gone through that myself, it’s quite a passive passage. There is really no participation or breakthrough experience. So, the western child goes from cradle to to TEE VEE to the computer screen who become the parent in many instances. They learn to trust what they see and hear at an early stage creating an almost unbreakable bond.
I do not see this as an innate tendency. I see it as an instilled behavior.
Even the most gullible find it difficult to believe that Creepy Joe was legitimately elected. The only people that feel the election was honest are highly partisan racist hacks who are blinded by their Party’s propagandistic ideology. The bottom line is they are simply cognitively dysfunctional brain washed individuals who have difficulty operating in any way other than at the simplest level. They are the type of person who doesn’t know how to click on a computer link to open it up. Most likely they use a Micro$oft operating system and actually believe their computer is working optimally.
‘Now, we know why Tiger’s eat their Young’ – Rodney Dangerfield
After yesterday’s badly scripted and acted out fiasco, one of the saddest presentations of a so-called man of power I have ever seen, only a fool would think that this man is not VERY damaged.
I watched it on Crowder’s youtube channel and when the male reporter’s question was diverted into a long tirade not addressing it it was over for Joe.
His 81 Trillion voters must be worried by now :-/
The insanity of all that has occurred in the past year is beyond any dystopian sci-fi novel. We are truly a nation in deep trouble that can not be solved by those who participated (Congress, the Judiciary, etc.) and without an authentic rise up to action by the citizens, IMO, all is lost.
EJ…..I agree in totality. There is no answer through what we once believed were normal channels. It is now up to We the People and I sadly do not see any potential of our rising to the occasion. I fear we are lost.
I would LOVE for someone to talk me out of that attitude.
When looking at the bigger historical perspective, there is skeletal evidence dating over 300 MILLION years of sentient beings. Even in our recent development since the Younger Dryas ice age about 12,000 years ago and the recent discovery of Gobekli Tepi in Turkey it is evident the odds are not so good for longevity of each species expression.
So to me, the “Zen” thing is to not have any expectations and just be like a white blood cell to the current species and offer my “gift” of healing through my music and occasional comment box narrative :-)) That old “Think Global, Act Local” thing was pretty right on you know :-))
You posed some good questions, however I feel your initial one is the heart of the essay…
”Why is it that otherwise perfectly intelligent, thoughtful and rationally minded people baulk at the suggestion that sociopaths are conspiring to manipulate and deceive them? “
My simple answer is cognitive dissonance, that web frequent used term, yet probably quite accurate addressing inner, and possibly not recognized, fears of the citizens, unable “to hold contradictory or otherwise incompatible truths.”
Just “how” this mental conditioning came about in so many people, IMO, would indicate a learned behavior of some sort hey? When a mind is soft, words have sharp edges, and indeed the critical thinking skills of too many have been reduced (softened up) considerably, replaced with a robotic-like adherence to a some nefarious strategy or curriculum. That operant conditioning thing of seeing people “punished” for deviating from the proscribed “norm” works quite well.
Parents instill “their” learned perspectives into young minds who eventually go to school and receive more conditioning, most often all out of “good intentions.” The peer group pressure is astounding as well. The end “product” of course is well-behavior from influence not insight.
We’ve been force fed a diet of misinformation and propaganda and more for decades and probably for centuries. Historical evidence indicates for most of our recent development, humans have been under an agenda to wrest away sovereignty and free thought in health, spirituality, goals, etc. and keeping people in constant division of understandings like Climate change, Chemtrails, enemy of the month, and now gender identity, race issues, etc.
So in your case I would offer that people who are conspiracy deniers aren’t so “perfectly intelligent, thoughtful and rationally minded” but rather may hold that appearance by staying within comfortable or acceptable boundaries. With considerable, intentional narcissistic tendencies in society these days, there is great difficulty in admitting one is wrong.
So the controllers, whomever they may be, are probably quite proud of themselves for their success in breaking down our civilization.
But then, if we are so “civilized,” why have automobiles never had a “thank you” light on them?? 🙂
Sandy Hook and Boston Marathon frauds are indeed two of the most believed hoaxes in world history. The sad and pathetic fact is that 99% of the population STILL believe them as fact. The USA is the most fraud infected nation in recorded history. The people of the US do not possess critical thinking. If its on TV news, they believe it. If its reported by the government, they believe it.
There was so much fake blood used in the Boston Marathon hoax that the city of Boston had to replace the sidewalk site of the fraud.
The file photo shows Alvino. She was seen to break windows and bark orders at the Boston Hoax. She was later given a medal of honor in the Oval Office by Obama…the most phony person to even sit at the Presidential desk for 8 horrific years. He still haunts Washington DC like a Dracula who will not die.
Don … Check out this Palm Reading. By my calculations … When this Baby hits 112 M.P.H. … You are going to See Some Serious Shit! … In the Language of Gematria … In the Simple Cipher … “Sandy Hook” = 112 = “Movie Blood” = 112 = “Showtime” = 112 = “Hoax in U.S.A.” = 112 <<< Didn't they say Adam Lanza weighed 112 lbs. ? … The Boston Bombing happen on 4-15, written like 415 ? … In the Jewish Cipher … we connect … "Staged Deaths" = 415 = "Altered Facts" = 415 … In the English Cipher, I find it Fascinating that … "Democratic" = 415 = "Congress" = 415 <<< Wasn't that Tax Day? Everything is going … Back to the Future II …
