MindMatters: Woke Revolution, Mass Hysteria, and the Fourth Turning

good times
The 2010s and 2020s are a crisis point in Western societies - a time that has the potential to give birth to something better than what came before, or something much, much worse. Today on MindMatters we're going cyclical. The hysteroidal cycle from Lobaczewski's Political Ponerology, generational theory from Strauss and Howe's The Fourth Turning. And along the way, we take a gander at some of the sparks of mass hysteria in recent years, culled from James Lindsay's article, "The Rise of the Woke Cultural Revolution."

Cult

The Child Soldiers of Portland

The city's adults are indoctrinating children in a profoundly pessimistic worldview, in which racism and oppression pervade every institution, with no way out but revolution.
Public schools are training children to become race-conscious revolutionaries.

There are only a few places on earth where radicals and their children ritualistically burn the American flag and chant "Death to America": Tehran, Baghdad, Beirut, Kabul, Ramallah — and Portland, Oregon.

The City of Portland, a cloud-covered metro on the south bank of the Columbia River, has become known for its political protesters. Anarchists, Communists, ecofascists, and various other agitators regularly denounce the police, politicians of both parties, and America itself, and flag-burning has become part of the protesters' liturgy. Last summer, protesters associated with Antifa upped the ante with chants of "Death to America" and participated in months of violent protests to avenge the death of George Floyd while he was in police custody in Minneapolis. Children as young as four marched with the crowd to the federal courthouse, raising the Black Power fist and chanting "Fuck the Police!"

Cult

Vaccine Virtue Signaling And The Totalitarian Cult of Woke

vaccine shots clebrities

'We got the shot! Won't you join us?...'
All tyrannical systems need a large contingent of cheerleaders in order to survive and thrive; a group of exploitable and devout acolytes that will carry the torch and evangelize the masses with the ideology of control. Without this aggressive percentage of the population, totalitarians cannot remain in power. In the US and most of the west, leftist ideologues have filled this role nicely. They claim they are fighting for the rights of the downtrodden but their actions speak much louder than their words.

They have supported and viciously defended nearly every draconian measure that governments and corporate elites have enacted in the past few years. They supported mass censorship of conservatives and moderates by Big Tech companies. They supported national lockdowns which destroyed hundreds of thousands of small businesses and violated the constitutional rights of millions of Americans. They continue to support unscientific mask rules which have been proven to achieve nothing tangible in terms of preventing viral spread. They support the use of "vaccine passports" which would effectively cut non-vaccinated people out of the normal economy and normal society and drive them into poverty. And, now they are all over the web trying to propagandize for the jab.

We know these unhinged creatures by many names, including social justice warriors, snowflakes, puritans, leftists, Marxists, communists, globalists, collectivists, narcissists, etc. Basically, they are some of the worst people on the planet, and while they usually drone on about "institutional racism" that doesn't exist, or a rape culture that doesn't exist, or a patriarchy that doesn't exist (though I'm starting to wonder if maybe we should start one), they have now found a new love in the covid "crisis".

Comment: Given the pathological level of group-think that's on display, it is no wonder that many other astute observers of the drive to "vaccinate, vaccinate, vaccinate!" have also described this multi-pronged phenomenon as cultish:

Objective:Health - Dropping Covid Vaccination Rates

O:H header
Many mainstream media outlets have been reporting on the dropping vaccination rates across the US, with unused vaccines piling up across the country. They, of course, blame Republicans, and specifically Trump for this "vaccine hesitancy", as it does appear that the red states have lower vaccination rates overall.

But could it be that once those in care homes and hospitals were vaccinated and the Covid True Believers who were chomping at the bit to get their shots were dealt with, there simply aren't that many people anxious to get this experimental medical procedure? Could it be that those still able to think, even if not directly opposed to the shot, are thinking it more prudent to wait this one out? Could it be that, despite the constant media push, trust in the authorities and their solutions is actually dropping?

Join us for this episode of Objective:Health as we tease out the implications of this recent drop in Covid vaccine uptake.

War Whore

Israel is Deliberately Obliterating Media Buildings in Gaza to Cover up The War Crimes That Will Follow

Israel 'surgically removing terrorists from Gaza'.
The destruction of two important Gaza buildings housing 20 media outlets was both shocking and predictable. History shows that if the media aren't around to document Israel's war crimes, it's a lot easier for it to commit them.

On Tuesday, Israel bombed the 10-storey Al-Jawhara Tower, causing it to collapse. Before doing so, it had 'benevolently' warned that the airstrikes were coming. The following day, it bombed the 14-storey Al-Shorouk Tower, also giving warning it was going to do so.

Most reports have the buildings as evacuated before being levelled. But without these media offices, reporting on Israel's other war crimes will be left largely to what little media remain and citizen journalists.

Objective:Health - ‌Inside the Mind of the Covid True Believer

O:H header
Last week an opinion piece showed up on USA Today titled: "It's time to start shunning the 'vaccine hesitant'. They're blocking COVID herd immunity'. The article sparked the expected (and probably welcomed) amount of polarizing outrage on both sides of the issue on social media as the author goes into detail about how anyone choosing to forego the genetically engineered Covid shot should be treated as a second class citizen with multiple rights taken away.

What is revealing about the article is how far the mind of the Covid true believer has actually gone in hoovering up the propaganda and spitting it back out almost verbatim, complete with all the contradictory and nonsensical points in tact (like the fact that the shots are said to NOT confer immunity, only mitigate symptoms, yet the shots are needed for herd immunity to be achieved).

The Covid true believer needs to be able to ignore these contradictions in order to be able to maintain the belief that the authorities know what they're doing and have the best interests of the citizenry at heart. Yet to the critical mind, the entire narrative lacks any semblance of logic. It would be comical if the fate of the thinking individuals weren't being dictated by the Covid cult who are clearly unable to think.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we take a truly terrifying trip through the mind of the Covid true believer.

MindMatters: Surviving Materialism, Accepting the Afterlife

surviving death
Despite the plethora of anecdotes and scientific studies suggesting the existence of an 'afterlife,' the Western world as a whole is still largely in the dark about this all-important subject. Though good information does continue to present itself, there are many who are all-too-willing to throw the baby out with the bathwater - with a bucket of dogma informed by scientific materialism.

This week on MindMatters we look at some of the most interesting research on the subject, including the recent Netflix docu-series Surviving Death, based on journalist Leslie Kean's book of the same name. We also look at its relationship to consciousness, psi and values - and how the largely narrow perspective on these themes only goes to serve the "modern" trend to accept the nihilistic and toxic strain of ideologies, postmodernism, scientism, and other limiting belief systems.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - April 2021: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secs421
A sudden pressure difference between Greenland and northern Europe triggered a massive arctic cold blast that plunged temperatures to historical records throughout Europe. The extreme cold arrived less than a week after a record-warm period at the final days of March.

The thermometers in Capanna Margherita, Italy plunged to -33,2°C, while Novi Vasi, Slovenia registered an all-time national record of -20°C. The UK was also hit by a new national April cold record with -6°C, just a few days after an all-time record for March of -15,4°C in Eskdalemuir. And while we are there, the Alps also reported the coldest April in history.

Very low temperatures with record-breaking cold and damaging frost were also reported in parts of France, Germany, and Croatia.

A cold blast from the Arctic Ocean pushed Alaska into a deep freeze breaking two records for snowfall and low temperatures for two consecutive days. The historic storm ranked among the most intense snowfalls since records started and snow cover reached as far south as Oklahoma.

Extreme cold temperatures with substantial snowfall totals to match hit the Moscow region this month. Weather conditions were akin to those suffered during the depths of winter. At the same time, the eastern region of Russia registered the greatest snow cover for April.

Are we recognizing the pattern here?

Typhoon Surigae became the most intense April tropical cyclone on record and battered the eastern Philippines with 190mph winds and intense rain. Parts of East Nusa Tenggara Province saw more than 20 inches of rain in 2 days.

Heavy rain and flooding also affected the central and northern areas of Colombia triggering landslides and damaging homes. Thousands of families were affected.

Hail as large as softballs battered portions of Texas and Oklahoma, leaving behind shattered windows on cars and in homes. It was the second billion-dollar disaster this year in Texas.

Hundreds of new sinkholes have been reported in Konya Province, Turkey since the start of the year, almost double the number registered last year.

All this and more in our SOTT Earth Changes Summary for April 2021:
