    Default Cults of Death & Power

    This post is going to have crossover relevance to multiple threads: Corey Goode, David Wilcox, climate change, mandatory vaccinations, and flat earth, among others. And I’m also going to start a new thread called Cults of Death & Power; which is named after a new research project put out by David Whitehead (see the last video on crowd psychology).

    Because this is going to take a stab at some root psychology, and causes feeding all of these issues. The first video is going to be a presentation by Cliff High about critical thinking, specifically Cliff is talking about how consensus reality is not a predictor of truth... and then he presents a method of critical thinking he calls technical validation. The idea is that a science or theory can be verified as true if you can develop real world applications from it.

    For example, we know Nichola Tesla was developing true ideas about electricity and electromagnetism because modern society relies on his concepts for household electricity, electric generation, wireless technology and cell phones. So, contrast these real world inventions with what has been developed from the theory of flat earth... nothing.

    So here are a couple videos. I challenge you to compare and contrast the first video of Cliff High with a second recent video of Santos Bonacci explaining the concepts of flat earth theory... who makes a more truthful presentation? (tip: don’t spend more than 10 minutes on the second Santos video, you’ll get the point pretty quickly) Who do you think makes the more persuasive argument? Were you influenced by Santos’ passionate and emotional presentation?





    Lastly, why do people fall for these lies? At its roots are these Cults of Death & Power. A huge topic, but the videos by David Whitehead goes deep into this problem. He talks not just about the charismatic leaders that exploit vulnerable people, but also the individual and group psychology that makes you & I vulnerable to these traps... and then he also talks about its relevance to many political issues of today!

    What are some topics that fall under this issue? Well besides flat earth, what about the massive cult of Climate Change? How is patriotism and national unity used to foment young people into fighting and killing internationally? What is the group psychology that is used to mold peoples minds to follow these modern day cults and what are some historical examples in politics, religion, government, and finance?

    David Whitehead has done a great job with his new series of research videos on Cults of Death & Power.

    He really goes into not just examples of what cults are and are not, but also the how & why of these cults. For example, individual and group psychology.

    I’m going to do something a little different, and that is to first post Part 4 of this series, and then as time permits some of the other videos. For a presentation of definition of cults and an overview of some modern examples of historical cults, go to Part 1.
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VsGnfchZI28

    I invite you to discuss this and the many other topics related to these cults. Individual psychology, and what drives us (think Jordan Peterson), Sabatean Frankism and THE major, possibly root cult of death in modern history. (Has anyone read David Icke’s new book?)

    Let’s discuss death cults in politics (Stalin, Hitler, Mao). Why do these cult leaders make emotional speeches, rather than logical arguments to crowds?



    0-3:00 introduction

    3:00-7:17 The presentation is set up with a short clip of Jordan Peterson. It is impossible to respect yourself until you grow some teeth, you are dangerous but under self control.

    7:30 - begin with David Whitehead. Think of the crimes of the 20th century that have lead to what is happening today. But what is the origination of these crimes? This is an exploration of you. Evil can exist in each and everyone of us. The greatest evil (our dark side), but also the greatest acts of love and kindness. What lies at the core of the deepest evil or the greatest love is individual choice.

    Quote It is not society, nor any social right, that forbids you to kill - but the inalienable individual right of another man to live.

    This is not a “compromise” between two rights - but a line of division that preserves both rights untouched, the division is not derived from an edict of society- but from your own inalienable individual right. The definition of this limit is not set arbitrarily by society- but is implicit in the definition of your own right.

    Within the sphere of your own rights, your own freedom is absolute.

    -Ayn Rand
    Quote In an everchanging, incomprehensible world the masses had reached the point where they would, at the same time, believe everything and nothing, think that everythink was possible and that nothing was true...

    Mass propaganda discovered that its audience was ready at all times to believe the worst, no matter how absurd, and did not particularly object to being deceived because it held every statement to be a lie anyhow.

    The totalitarian mass leaders based their propaganda on the correct psychological assumption that, under such conditions, one could make people believe the most fantastic statements one day, and trust that if the next day they were given irrefutable proof of their falsehood, they would take refuge in cynicism; instead of deserting the leaders who had lied to them, they would protest that they had known all along that the statement was a lie and would admire the leaders for their superior tactical cleverness.

    -Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism

    David Whitehead rocks!

    His ‘unslaved’ podcast with Michael Tsarion has been producing high quality content on a weekly basis for the past 3 years now!

    Exceptionally well-read and always articulate. Gets deep into the heart of classical psychology.

    Going to take me a while to catch up on Whiteheads 4-hour epic presentations, but definitely an important thread to come back to.

    Thanks for posting Joe.

    Thanks Jayke! Yes, epic really does describe it, you won’t be disappointed. David packs in a huge amount of information in this episode, and his livestream was actually cut off in the 3rd hour of the episode, during which he was defending Jews and the Jewish religion. As I mentioned in the first post, this really is hitting at the core of many problems. And here is another thread topic that crosses this one - censorship. Thankfully he kept recording the presentation and reposted it after being cut off by Youtube for “violating community standards”.

    I agree with you about the great work he is doing with Michael Tsarion on the Unslaved Podcast, and I especially like the Path of the Fool presentations they collaborated on, which went through each major arcana card of the Tarot which preceded their podcast series.
