In the “good old days” our tragedies were local and isolated. Today with the aid of technology, tragedy is seen everywhere, every day. We want protection, we want guarantees that bogyman can be conquered – we want to be told not to worry or that whatever happens to the United States it is for its own good.

Shakespeare wrote in his political epic Julius Caesar “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars. But in ourselves, that we are underlings.”

When people feel tossed about like feathers in the wind, helpless to control their futures, they turn to mass movements, to anything to which they can surrender their individual will. They put all of their faith in leaders and messiahs no matter how dishonest or manipulating they are.

A year ago, former President Trump declared a national emergency and the White House announced a 15-day plan to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Governments around the world either preceded the U.S. or soon followed with similar pronouncements. The upsurge in totalitarianism since these edicts were installed is mind-boggling.

Staying home, social distancing, and hand washing were the first steps in the slippery slope towards medical martial law.

A year later we are being told that perhaps there will be a time in a few months where government officials can ease up on their draconian controls. Sime states have already followed suit —while coming under fired from those who still believe they can retain what little power they have left over the citizens of their state.

When politicians have power they certainly will find excuses to hold on to it as much as they can .

Government is obviously composed of corrupt and greedy people, and therefore they are a legitimate object of criticism and constant exposure.

If your own political party is in power, then it is easier for you to say that all things are moving smoothly. Yet it has been demonstrated time infinitum that the state has become infiltrated by individuals with secret societal philosophies that if implemented, can dramatically change the way we live. Their party affiliation has no bearing on their hidden agendas. Those that hide in the shadows make policy in order to secure the state power hold and continuity of corrupt government.

All of these draconian measures have served as social engineering tools to get people used to having “experts” and government officials tell them what to do. In fact, you could argue that all of humanity (outside those in authority) has been slowly tortured over the past year.

What we are experiencing is no touch torture.

In fact, I can actually say with all surety that what is happening in this country is a clear case of ponerism. An institutionalized political evil has succeeded in carrying out a clandestine torture experiment on the American people.

When we factor in ponerology and the fact that the controlling elite are looking for total and complete control of the population, the use of psychological and physical torture on the public to increase compliance is certainly an appealing methodology for them to use.

I am sure many people are unaware of what ponerism is. It comes from the Greek word Poneros – meaning evil.

But Poneros is a special kind of evil – it is evil with action and is usually associated with politics.

At the social level, hatred, envy, greed and strife have now multiplied exponentially in the environment we are in now. Crime increases faster than the population can keep up with. Combined with wars, insurrections, political purges, and a scarcity economy looming over are heads multiplied millions of people across the globe are now without adequate food or shelter due to political actions.

And then, of course, drought, famine, plague and natural disasters still take an annual toll in lives and suffering. This, too, seems to be increasing.

While acts of God are random – or so we think the other problems can be solved.

ut of course due to political infighting we will have a difficult time digging ourselves out what can be seen as a prison existence.

Like it or not all of what we are experiencing is not just a plague pandemic or virus – it is the result of political ponerology.

Evil with intent, evil with actions, evil that is psychological in scope—evil that dehumanizes individuals for the sake of ensuring political power over the sick and depleted.

Again the extremist 2% controlling 98% of people that are seen as scared sheep, or pathetic useful idiots.

It is argued that Karl Marx created the term for those who wittingly or unwittingly participated in furthering the goals of the controlling party – no matter what harm it may do to them.

Vladimir Lenin called communist sympathizers in the West – useful idiots.

Whoever they could manipulate to accept a totalitarian rule satisfied their ability to control even some of the biggest intellectuals of the day.

It became a very useful way of institutionalizing evil – it was called political ponerology.

With very few exceptions down the ages, discussions in moral philosophy – the study of right conduct have failed to systematically investigate the origin, nature, and course of evil in a manner free from supernatural imaginings. Evil was often considered something to be endured rather than something that could be understood and eliminated by rational measures.

Poneros is a political form of evil rather than a supernatural form of evil – and it is a great way for technocrats to use basic psychology to torture individuals into acquiesce to their power.

You want to know why the so called progressive social justice warriors are acting out by erasing history?

It is simple really, they are the ‘useful idiots’ of today that wish to ignore the all the failed Marxist/socialist experiments that have been exposed in world history for the last 100 years. They and all of the rest of us are now in the midst of the same poneristic experiment and many do not realize that they are pawns that are responding to psychological torture and manipulation.

The cancel culture and the woke culture have demonstrated that they can be useful by self policing others for the benefit of a government that wishes to suppress dissent. They are a direct result of torture programming.

An interesting side note here before we move on to more specifics in this general area of torture. They say that in chronic stress, people give up. They give up their will to live, they lose their normal responses and desires, but they also say giving up could take other forms.

Another way of giving up is becoming passive — giving up the fight and realizing that resistance is futile. People get to a point where they sympathize with their torture and wish to demand the continued control.

This is brought on by what is called a predatory state. The victim becomes prey to the predator –which allows for coercion and threats to render them in a state of flux.

There is a sickness going around that’s much worse than any coronavirus. It’s called “Stockholm Syndrome” and it infects those who are too ignorant, trusting, and fearful to question those in authority and hold them accountable.

Infected people lap up every word people like Dr. Anthony Fauci say, no matter how many times he’s contradicted himself or even been caught lying. They fully agree with taking a vaccine rolled out at warp speed with completely new technology that’s never before been tested on human beings.Dr. Mark Murphy: Coming to Dr. Fauci's defense

They yell at people in stores who refuse to wear face masks. They call anyone with facts contradicting the mainstream narrative a conspiracy theorist. They cheer when people who disagree with them get censored, deplatformed, and even lose their jobs. They don’t balk when authorities extend or issue new state of emergency rules restricting their freedom. They don’t even get angry when hypocritical officials are caught violating their own rules. But they are quick to attack anyone challenging their beloved rulers and attempting to restore liberty .

We have become consumers, clients of the government, instead of citizens. This deprives the Constitution of its power source and its ability to be used as a cornerstone of law– it is not to bet cherry picked for your favorite amendment to quote when you are told to shut up or put away your gun.

“Consent of the governed” to the Constitution became a meaningless formula with the passing of time. It becomes a founding myth, like the foundation of all traditional governments. Now we see ourselves as passengers of America, not its owners – we now are owned and are willing to hand over the very thing that courageous and brave people have fought for.

What is happening now is what happens when the young forget history and the old forget to not repeat it.

History shows that rebellions against internal elites are rare.

Most societies won’t rebel if they still feel a sense of comfort in transition.

Americans dream of revolution, drawing parallels with revolutions such as 1776 America but they ignore conditions that we see in America today like apathy and disorganization, accompanied by a massive increase in the State’s surveillance and police machinery.

You can say that you have the guns but they have bigger ones and enforcement is something that guarantees conformity.

The surveillance state also is utilized to insure compliance.

Today I was reading about how in Israel, all Israelis returning from abroad can be required to wear an electronic bracelet to ensure that they isolate at home, or be quarantined in a hotel.

This is being proposed in a new bill — this on top of the “vaccine passport” that we talked about that has been created by IBM.

Again the irony is not lost on me, but of course we know history rhymes.

All those currently entering the country are required to isolate, unless they present a vaccination or a recovery certificate issued by the Israeli Health Ministry. Those who were inoculated or who recovered abroad can be released from the quarantine if they undergo a serological test to prove their level of antibodies.New law lets Israeli Health Ministry share personal info of citizens who decline COVID vaccine - CBS News

Electronic devices have already been in use for several weeks on a voluntary basis to ensuring that people do not break the quarantine.

According to the bill, the operation is carried out by private companies on behalf of the ministry. The information collected is stored in servers owned by the government but maintained by the companies, and will be deleted at the end of the period if there is no report of infraction, or no longer than 30 days.

The company will inform the authorities if the person appears to leave their house.

The bracelet cannot monitor any details about the person wearing it, except whether they are complying with their quarantine– again this is the trap and the slippery slope is well perceived.

Meanwhile in China, BIG Brother-like mass state surveillance is being developed by China with streets full of cameras that can monitor citizens’ emotions and track their “social credit” scores. The high tech systems will also help people snoop and rat on each other from the comfort of their homes — or on the go with their smartphones.

The Communist regime’s nightmare-inducing plans involve installing spy cameras in all places and using artificial intelligence to calculate a person’s “social score” which will determine benefits or punishments.

The sheer level of surveillance being planned is straight out of the dystopia created by author George Orwell in his book, 1984, where the eyes of the state – Big Brother – are always watching you.

But now it is being made easy with 21st-century spy technology.

Similar spy tech is now being made available in the United States but of course it is being sold as helpful to your health and well-being.

Yesterday, Google announced that it is upgrading its Nest Hub technology so that it can monitor your sleeping habits.The new Google Nest Hub tracks your sleep without wearables or cameras - CNET

Google’s Nest unit is expanding into health technology with a feature that tracks sleep patterns, offering a potential new revenue stream and of course it does not tell you that it again is a threat to your privacy.

The company unveiled the second-generation model of its Nest Hub smart display in a blog post Tuesday, and this time it comes with a function called Sleep Sensing that monitors the breathing and movement of a person sleeping next to the screen — without a camera or needing to wear a device in bed.

The system also detects disturbances such as coughing and snoring, along with light and temperature changes using the Nest Hub’s built-in microphones and ambient light and temperature sensors. Over time, it learns the user’s sleep patterns and gives personalized recommendations.

Nest was a pioneer in so-called smart home technology through its internet-connected thermostat. Google acquired the company for $3.2 billion in 2014. Since then, Nest struggled with some new product launches, lost its founders and dealt with recurring privacy questions.

Google Nest is actually a unit available now that can eventually make your home a smart home that is connected to the grid –and monitors things that you do in the privacy of your home.

We’re not just talking Orwellian paranoia or a dystopian future where our personal lives are intertwined with corporate identities constantly siphoning data from them. The security and privacy issues at play in haphazardly wiring up our personal spaces are becoming increasingly more substantive and — with the proliferation of smart devices — opening up our lives to more points of vulnerability, both from real-world threats and existential ones.

The connected home vision has been around for decades. But until recently, futurists didn’t worry much about privacy considerations because this Jetsons’-like scenario always seemed far over the horizon.

When it comes to the connected home, we’re starting to see an abundance of choices:

Smart appliance lineups from Samsung and LG; cross-device communication software from Smart Things and Z-Wave; elegantly redesigned household staples like Nest’s thermostat and smoke detector; and — having arrived sooner and with more vulnerabilities than more recent smart home additions — Internet-enabled cameras for home security and monitoring.

That means going forward, the privacy discussion won’t just revolve around what data is being shared, with whom and for what purposes as if the debate were the same conversation that privacy advocates have regarding Facebook.

Instead, the connected home market — with its many different products and platforms and no universal privacy protection — is offering consumers a thousand different ways to “make the home smarter,” with each coming with its own set of security risks and protection responsibilities that, if ignored or not followed carefully, can turn a system or product against its owner.

It is a case of a more predatory Big Brother for use in the new predatory state.

It’s not new to the Internet of Things. We’ve been giving up as consumers for a long time our finances, our identity — a lot of the things about where we live and what we do already.

As you can see it has been a slow grooming process and eventually people will except this as the new normal an act of leaving our Flintstones existence and becoming more like the Jetsons.

Except the Jetsons existence will have its Orwellian feel.

What all of these companies, organizations, and initiatives have in common are their ties to the World Economic Forum, the digital transformation of society, and global governance.

They have put into their plans strict control of all human life under new digital technologies that will eliminate the need for legacy systems.

The authoritarian overlords have assured us that they are not going allow the crisis of COVID-19 go to waste and so they are moving fast to coerce people into using these new technological breakthroughs in order to spy on you and control you.

Now is the time to do whatever you can to free yourself from dependence on the systems currently in place and those the global cabal are planning to make the new normal in the near future.

In the 21st century, all that “small government” Republicans and “big government” Democrats can agree on is offering essentially unconditional support to the military and the national security state.  Because if they support them they can get them to enforce whatever they ask without so much of a rebellion in the ranks.

We traded away our liberty for promises of security and prosperity. Everything has a price.

We will need cohesion to stand together during the difficult times ahead, ignoring those seeking to retain power by dividing us against ourselves.

We will need wisdom to select the best available path to a secure future, no matter how difficult or painful.  Wisdom to know what we must keep from our past, and what to discard.

We might find our greatest enemy to be our own complacency, blinding our eyes to the approaching dangers.

It does not take a psychic to tell you where this is heading and I promise you that no one can even fathom what is waiting in the wings for the world. It will be something that will implicate everyone in ways that will cause a big rethinking of where we are going.

This speculation is not a fantasy. Many are now realizing that they have not been spared the emotional and monetary cost of ignoring the warning signs.
