In the technique of subliminal contradiction, two mutually incompatible bits of information are simultaneously projected into the perception of the victim without the contradiction being either pointed out or explained. In the technique of deferred closure, inexplicable data are continually fed to the victim … over a period of time, data that always suggest the possibility of a rational explanation but never quite allow it.Charles Upton
In Charles Upton’s remarkable little volume, titled The Alien Disclosure Deception: The Metaphysics of Social Engineering, the author discusses sophisticated techniques of psychological warfare used by governments. These include the technique of subliminal contradiction and the technique of deferred closure. Each is designed to attack the human mind’s need for rational closure. A mind that cannot achieve closure, he warned, “will react to the continued frustration of one of its most basic needs either by sinking into stunned exhaustion, or by producing a paranoid, delusional form of closure.”[i]
No, I don’t think it should be mandatory. I wouldn’t demand it be mandatory.Joe Biden, January 2021[i]
Primarily coal industry and oil and gas industry, a lot of smaller players in that industry are going to probably go bankrupt in short order – at least we want them to go bankrupt if we want to tackle climate change.”Saule Omarova, Biden’s Treasury pick
There are two major totalitarian agendas at work today. One is vaccine mandates (and passports), while the other is climate change. These two agendas are connected, but not as you might imagine. They are connected because the planet is about to experience cooling instead of warming. This cooling will be caused by the Grand Solar Minimum that began last year. Food production will be seriously disrupted by weather, and already has been affected in some regions. In other words, we are headed for a global famine. Humanity is going to suffer a massive die-off. I strongly suspect the pandemic, the vaccine mandates, and the vaccine passports are related to this impending situation.
Histories are as perfect as the Historian is wise … and … the grand difference between a Dryasdust and a sacred Poet, is very much even this…. When both oblivion and memory are wise, when the general soul of man is clear, melodious, true, there may come a modern Iliad as memorial of the Past: when both are foolish, and the general soul is overclouded with confusions, with unveracities and discords, there is a ‘Rushworthian chaos.’ Let Dryasdust be blamed….Thomas Carlyle, “Anti-Dryasdust”
History is not everything that happens. History, said Carlyle, consists in the worthwhile – not the trivial. Because history is about meaningful things, it must be oriented to what things mean, what they signify, portend, and lead to. Understanding history does not involve knowing every last detail of an event. It does not require us to know what the peasant had for lunch. True history is discovered through a process of sifting. The true historian, it turns out, must possess skills similar to those of an intelligence analyst (or detective). The historian and the intelligence analyst must sift a large mass of data. In the end, both must find the underlying Truth. The historian seeks the key to a historical narrative while the intelligence analyst seeks to understand enemy strategy. Sometimes the key to the historical narrative is the enemy strategy.[ii]
While Weaver loved the South with a fierce passion, he avoided one of the besetting sins of the heirs of the Agrarians: a constricting sectionalism that thrives on the belief that all would have been well south of the Potomac had the Confederacy bested the Union Armies. Weaver perceived that the infirmities of modern Western civilization transcended the dichotomy between North and South.George M. Curtis & James J. Thompson, Jr [i].
Who is Julius Evola? His career was many-sided: As a philosopher he belongs among the leading representatives of Italian Idealism … to some he might appear as an èminence grise in politics, for Mussolini apparently wanted to implement some of Evola’s ideas to create more freedom from the restrictions of National Socialism … and many of his books testify to his understanding of alchemy and magic, and it is reported that Mussolini stood in considerable awe of Evola’s ‘magical powers.’”H.T. Hansen [ii]
When a thinker says civilization has taken the wrong road, when he says civilization is in the process of disintegrating, when his political sympathies lie with a defeated power that tried to establish a different pattern of civilization, then that thinker is a pariah. He stands outside the circle of “received wisdom.” What, then, can we learn from him? Being an outsider, he sometimes sees what the rest of us have missed. Some of his views may be repellant, or outrageous, yet he should not be ignored; for those who find themselves standing outside a civilization are not entangled in the conceits of that civilization, or engaged in the deceptive flattery that feeds it. The thinker who stands outside civilization, who suffers intellectual exile, may be civilization’s only honest critic. He may, in fact, be honest and courageous enough to pour cold water over our heads and cry “shame.” Why, indeed, would he do such a thing? There is never any money is such a career. Everyone and everything, in fact, is moving further and further from him. Whatever his failings or missteps, he has his little corner of truth. Wariness is advised in approaching him, of course. One should never approach pariahs uncritically. One approaches them to learn truths that we have exiled. One approaches them with one burning question: What have we failed to see?
Despite the overwhelming scientific evidence that COVID-19 could not have evolved in nature and, therefore, must have been created in a laboratory, it came as no surprise that U.S. intelligence agencies released an inconclusive report about its origin.Joe Hoft, Gateway Pundit[i]
It should come as no surprise that America’s intelligence agencies are clueless, because these agencies recruit their analysts and managers from America’s colleges and universities. As institutions go, our colleges and universities specialize in cluelessness. A university degree is, in fact, training in how not to see. Why has this happened? “The essential thing has gone out of the entire system of higher education,” wrote Friedrich Nietzsche in 1888. How did it happen? A political ideal, Nietzsche explained, has been substituted for intellectual cultivation.
…generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children, that … this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow, and our planet began to heal.Barack Obama, 2008
You can tell how dangerous a politician is by the grandiosity of his statements. As Jim Simpson points out in his latest book, Marxist politicians who hide their Marxism under benign-sounding slogans, are among the most grandiose and dangerous. Listen to their bragging and you will hear of their magical abilities – to change the weather, to lower sea level, to cure sickness and poverty. Such claims are self-aggrandizing, to be sure. Promising people free health care, free jobs, free money, etc., is a path to power, after all. And isn’t power like magic? Yet, that same power prefigures massive taxation and the plundering of private citizens, the shuttering of businesses, the degradation of healthcare. It is robbing Peter to pay Paul.
His life … is a piece of the everlasting heart of Nature herself: all men’s life is, – but [the] weak [who are] many know not the fact, and are untrue to it, in most times; the strong few are strong, heroic, perennial, because it cannot be hidden from them.Thomas Carlyle
The hero is concerned with seeing. The villain is merely concerned with the manipulation of appearances. What an accomplishment it is, indeed, to see behind the foliage of “appearances.” Truth has its camouflage, its bodyguard of lies (if Churchill’s paradox is admitted). Truth is also a moving target, and a living thing, said Plato; never wholly captured by men even in animated discourse. On the other hand, a lie needs no discourse at all; for repetition is not discourse. Being easier than truth, a lie prevails with those who want everything to be easy. This is why modernity prefers “experts.” As Socrates once said of experts, “They will appear to be omniscient and will generally know nothing; they will be tiresome, having the reputation of knowledge without the reality.”[i]
