MindMatters: End of Year Special: Living in Truth and Discerning the Lies

2020 mindmatters
Science. Politics. Religion. Interpersonal relationships. There is no sphere of human study, thinking, belief or behavior that isn't affected in some way shape or form by what we believe to be true or false. That's what it all boils down to. And yet doing the work to understand ourselves and the world in which we live is no small task - as we are constantly being presented with policies, ideas and perspectives that present this challenge to us in increasingly, significant and meaningful ways. And made all the more important for their intensity and wide-spread ramifications.

Join us this week on MindMatters as we examine the ever-present struggle that each of us faces in mapping reality, finding the truth of things to the best of our ability, and then living and acting from that understanding. If humanity is collectively more than the sum of its parts, it is only through such a shared process that the best of all possible outcomes can be achieved. And yet this is exactly what each of us chooses to either take on, as a portion of beings residing on God's Good Earth, or not.

Objective:Health - The Nuremberg Code and Mandatory Vaccinations

O:H header
At the end of World War II, after witnessing the atrocities of the Nazi concentration camps and forced human experimentation, some pre-eminent doctors of the time were brought together to come up with a code of ethics in human medical experimentation, to make sure nothing like this ever happens again. Informed consent, the core of the Nuremberg Code, has rightly been viewed as the protection of subjects' human rights, and while it was never written into law, it came to influence the creation of the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights by the United Nations.

With the looming threat of mandatory vaccinations on the horizon, these documents become all the more vital and important for every citizen to be aware of their rights and what one can do in the face of medical tyrrany. On this episode of Objective:Health, we discuss the Nuremberg Code, the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights and how these documents are more pertinent now than ever before.

Objective:Health - Vaccine Shenanigans

O:H header
We've now had some deaths announced in the Pfizer Covid vaccine trial, but don't worry, CNN says that we shouldn't be 'alarmed' if people die after the vaccine because they were probably going to die anyway. And four trial participants for the same vaccine developed a facial paralysis called Bell's palsy, but the FDA denies it was caused by the shot. It seems that any negative effects of vaccination need to be dismissed out of hand, because vaccines are 100% safe, have no possible side effects and are the only thing standing between us all and horrible painful deaths.

In fact, the Serum Institute of India has gone so far as to sue one of their vaccine trial participants for defamation after he had the audacity to claim the vaccine gave him serious side effects. What nerve! Hopefully being sued for $13.5 million will put him in his place and let everyone else know that suffering side effects from the Covid vaccine is summarily forbidden.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we cover the latest news around the imminent Covid vaccines. Failure is not an option.

MindMatters: Picking Matthew Ehret's Brain: How Darwinism Took Over the World, and Why Ertugrul Is Awesome

ehret
When looking at the news, the best analysis quite often comes with a fair bit of 'dot connecting'. Ideally, we seek to understand our world and the major events unfolding as deeply as possible, but we're too often served a dish of two-dimensional news that furthers our knowledge just so much and not much more. So when a writer in the alternative news world manages to draw upon history, philosophy, science, and any number of other areas and disciplines - broadening our perspective in the process - we notice.

This week on MindMatters we are joined by just such a voice: author and lecturer Matthew Ehret. Matthew is like the college prof you wish you had, enlivening his knowledge base with an infectious enthusiasm and command of the relevant facts. A veritable plethora of subject matter is on the table: Darwin and Malthus, Planck and Einstein, Kepler's genius, the retrograde motion of Mars, the nature of conspiracies, and why you need to watch Resurrection: Ertugrul. Join us this week as the owner and contributor of the Canadian Patriot and the Rising Tide Foundation reminds us that academic-level research need not be a dry and listless affair, but can expand our world views in ways not previously anticipated.

Objective:Health - The Coming Biosecurity State UPDATE: Banned from YouTube within one hour!

O:H header
With rollout of various Covid vaccines imminent, we see a simultaneous rollout of the biosecurity state happening on multiple fronts. Under the guise of tracking vaccine effectiveness and side effects, predicting Covid severity risk, and predicting outbreaks, these technological tracking systems are really the mad dreams of the control freak elite, trying to keep an all-seeing eye on the populace.

Implanted chips and immunity passports, Covid-sniffing robots, "very active pharmacovigilance surveillance system[s]", vaccine patches - the Biotech Industrial Complex under COVID-19 is more or less here, just chomping at the bit to be implemented.

So as we sit, more or less helpless, as the Big Brother beyond Orwell's worst nightmares comes to fruition, how is a thinking, seeing person supposed to get by? Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we discuss the implications of our new techno-fascist overlords. Hope is not dead.

MindMatters: Interview with Rod Dreher: How to Survive the Coming Soft Totalitarianism

rod dreher
In 1974 world-renowned author of The Gulag Archipelago Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote a short essay to his Soviet compatriots beseeching them to live in truth. The message, called "Live Not By Lies" was a call to not feed into the communist government's ubiquitous daily diet of falsehoods used to perpetuate the overwhelmingly oppressive system in place. Fast forward nearly fifty years and western civilization now finds itself facing an uncannily similar situation - ideologically, politically and socially. Greatly expanding on Solzhenitsyn's letter, journalist Rod Dreher takes a stark look at our present predicament in his new book Live Not by Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents.

This week on MindMatters we discuss Live Not by Lies with Rod Dreher and take a hard look at the radical left's 'soft totalitarianism' already tearing away at the very fabric of society. Between Big Tech's cancelling of conservative perspectives, ideologically motivated political policies, mass consumer surveillance, and the misled foot soldiers that threaten to attack and burn all those who disagree with them, Dreher asks the prescient question - what should one do in the face of such an onslaught?

Making use of invaluable interviews and accounts of Christian dissidents who lived under communism in Eastern Europe, Dreher relates the thoughts, strategies and faith that assisted those who sought to live in truth under the harshest and most harrowing of communist regimes. We also delve into why the church and Christianity was specifically targeted and sought out as an enemy of the state, and why the conscience inherent in religion is quite often exactly what makes it such a powerful enemy of totalitarian thinking.

Objective:Health: ITN - Masks Still Don't Work. Meat is Still Good For You

in the news objective health
Welcome to another In The News (ITN) show from Objective:Health, where we troll the latest health headlines to bring you up to speed on the latest in ongoing stories.

This week we first look into masks... again. The recent news is that the long awaited Danish mask study has finally been published and it shows exactly what we'd expect (spoiler alert) - there is no statistically significant difference between wearing or not wearing mask. Surprise!

Then move on to the latest in the elites trying to change the way everyone eats to genetically modified, lab-grown, processed garbage that has no right to be called food. Purina is putting bugs in their pet foods, McDonald's announces the release of their apparently long-awaited veggie burger and a new study shows vegans and vegetarians are more likely to break bones than meat eaters.

Join us for another informative episode of Objective:Health!

MindMatters: Why Pop Culture Gets the Hero Archetype Wrong, and Ertugrul Succeeds

ertugrul
We've all seen them: Hollywood superhero blockbusters where the protagonist is a two-dimensional cardboard cutout, a shallow reflection of what makes a real hero a model of inspiration to begin with. All too reliant on presenting a spectacle to dazzle the eyes and the ears, these productions bombard us with imagery, ideas, and mediocre writing - in lieu of a fully drawn character who embodies the virtues, behavior and soul of the archetypal hero. Quite often we don't know what we've been missing in these portrayals until we see one that satisfies on multiple levels. So when we come across such a champion as we have in the Turkish television show Dirilis: Ertugrul (Resurrection: Ertugrul), you know we're going to celebrate it.

In this week's MindMatters we discuss why the epic Resurrection: Ertugrul is not only one of the most successful foreign television shows ever made - but how its protagonist, 13th-century Turkish tribal leader Ertugrul, may be taken as a hero for people of all faiths. Wildly popular in the Muslim world, you don't need to be a Muslim to appreciate or enjoy this mythologized re-telling of the legends surrounding his life. Ertugrul embodies all the traits of a real hero: honor, integrity, justice, intelligence, devotion, compassion, mercy, humility, and overall epic badassery. The show itself portrays traditional values, spiritual realities, universal problems, individual and group strengths and weaknesses - and the ever-present cosmic battle of good and evil. At a time when truly good heroic stories are in short supply we look at why this 'non-Western' story fits the job description that we are looking for in works of fiction.

MindMatters: Navigating The Chaos

don't panic
As current events and crazy people continue to spiral downhill with ever greater frequency and intensity, we find ourselves challenged not to react or respond in ways that are detrimental to ourselves and those around us. From both within and without each of us faces the choices of what to believe, how to feel - and what the appropriate responses to life could and should be. Will we fall prey to the Adversary's thinking and control, or will we follow the archetype of individuation, growth and the path of the Hero?

Taking a passage from Jordan Peterson's Maps of Meaning as inspiration, this week on MindMatters we examine the thought processes, emotions and intentions that may assist us in navigating the chaos. When political, social and cultural institutions continue to disintegrate around us and threaten to drag down all those in their sphere of influence, we must be our own anchors and continue to exercise our higher faculties to maintain some semblance of equilibrium. But just how to do this is a question we must ask for ourselves every day, and a framework for doing this is what we can start building for ourselves (and for those who look to us) right now.

MindMatters: The Impenetrable Fortress of Thoughtitude: When Belief Trumps Truth

closed minds
We all have belief systems, maps to reality that inform our perspectives and help us form the bedrock values we have about ourselves, others, and the world at large. This means thoughts on everything from religion and politics to how we interact with friends, and the specific truths about reality we have come to know and adapted to in our everyday lives. But when it comes to taking in new facts, what are the psychological and emotional processes involved in bringing ourselves to a higher or more constructive "place" with this new information? And how does the weaker part of our character seek to stifle new information in its desire to "be right" and remain "comfortable"?

This week on MindMatters we discuss the difficulties and challenges of looking at our own thought processes, default beliefs, and sometimes obsolete "knowledge" of things. There's a reason people don't like discussing politics or religion at the dinner table, but that won't stop us from doing it here. Did Mohammad really exist? Did Jesus? Are Democrats or Republicans always wrong? And how do our thoughts on such things prevent us from looking at data that might otherwise change our minds? With some determination, and truth as the ultimate value, we have the tools to form a more constructive view of ourselves, and of the world in which we live.
