His eyes, piercing and blue, blinked with a subtle “Warning – Do Not Land On This Planet.” Some locals in Venice, CA, who regularly sought comfort from crystals and tea leaves, dubbed him a “conspiracy theorist,” suggesting he was a severe nut.
I bounced into him at a neighborhood party, where he introduced himself simply as Steve. He looked like a surfer but sounded like a brainiac. He claimed to hold a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Cambridge yet presented a wildly unacademic version of the Universe.
“We’re living in a mouse wheel simulation, my friend,” he asserted, waving his finger at the room. “None of this is real.”
I looked around and confirmed the presence of synthetic-looking beings but failed to make a big deal out of it. What else was this legend packing?
Steve was an excruciatingly calm presence who took his time with everything. He lit a Rastafarian-size joint, nursed it like a baby, took a careful puff, and handed it to me. I took a drag and immediately realized the mistake. As soon as the smoke entered my lungs, I felt the urge to exit my body through the top of my head.
Steve grinned as if he could tune into me. Did he lace the joint?
“So, err, who is Agent Smith in this simulation?” I asked, trying to keep Steve out of my personal space.
He took a second or two to give a precise answer.
“Think of a mind virus, a purely energetic critter that can infect and control a host by using an idea as the transmission agent. No speed or distance constraints. Non-local, non-temporal, warp-enabled. Can you imagine such an adversary?” He asked.
“I’ve dealt with viruses, but not of that caliber,” I replied, taking a short-inhale-long-exhale to thwart a sense of rising panic. “Do they respond to antibiotics?”
“These particular critters are storytellers,” Steve said. “They are masters of low-vibe tales. Fear, jealousy, you name it. They feed on your downers. That’s why we’re looking at a constant cascade of drama. Centuries of engineered histrionics.”
That lit me up a bit.
“Wait. The viruses are responsible for the news?” I asked, entertained by the idea.
“Oh yeah, through their intermediaries, of course.”
He began to break down civilization’s “true geopolitical drivers.”
“First, you have to entrap. Think of a fruit plant that pretends to hand you a sweet treat but also recruits you as a seed carrier. Next time you poop, you also propagate its DNA, planting copies of the donor without your knowledge.”
“Uh-huh,” I said. I never thought of fruit that way before.
“Now apply the same thinking to infectious ideas. The virus has to impregnate the host in a way that makes them spread the idea. What gives you more power to spread ideas than authority?” Steve asked, his index finger pointing “up there.”
“Infect an opinion leader, dictator, politician, corporate tycoon, someone high up in the hierarchy, and you capture a super spreader,” Steve clarified.
Hmm-mm. The idea appealed to me. I had always tried to understand what was wrong with some of the people on the top, especially politicians. Human greed and corruption alone couldn’t explain the sordid state of the planet, endless wars, and whatnot. What Steve had here was a remarkably satisfying explanation.
“I get it,” I cackled, high as a kite, imagining some of our leaders getting joysticked by a mischievous virus.
We laughed and took another puff. Others joined our conspiracy circle and soon realized the beauty of mind viruses. The evil critters could explain almost every sorry aspect of society—even ourselves.
The world made perfect sense for a moment.
The following day, I woke up with a sore throat and a faint memory of an insane theory I had embraced while under the influence of an exotic cannabinoid strain—something about bad ideas propagating like viruses, taking over the world of men.
Despite intense resistance from my frontal lobe, the Rabbit Hole had sucked me softly into Level 1 antechamber.
I forgot about Steve and viruses until about a decade later, at the onset of the COVID pandemic, the lockdowns, and the mandates.
In the thick of the insanity, I woke up one morning and wondered, “Whatever happened to that guy from Cambridge?”
(Re) The Scheme That Lies In Plain View
Flash forward to the Present, where I pause, take a deep breath, zoom out of the playing field, and try to apply Occam’s Razor to the latest war – the one escalating with apocalyptic fumes.
In the classical world, wars erupt because of linear causation. Country A attacks Country B because of something B supposedly did, which then strikes at A. Retribution vectors accelerate until one or both are toast, or the collateral damage forces a ceasefire. The dynamic will be analyzed and debated in a finger-pointing marathon – most of which will be a hard miss. Before the dust settles, the next major conflict goes off, distracting us from the actual play behind the facades.
We know from a century of wars that linear causation narratives, especially the ones propagated by the victors, are fabrications by default. Wars have been used for centuries to transfer swathes of wealth to a few invisible hands, who gradually gained power over rulers, kings, and sovereign nations – often by controlling both sides of the conflict. This game accelerated in the last century with two world wars, countless wars of destabilization, and wars against “dictatorships,” regimes that stood in the way of a centuries-long Grand Scheme of the invisible clan, aka the Engineers: The social engineering of a one-world government.
If only we could point our finger at the Engineers, we might have been able to stop them centuries ago. The capo di capo hides behind the curtains for a reason. They recruit figureheads and foot soldiers for their agenda – heads of State, spymasters, the creme de la creme of the Fortune 500, and most importantly, sociologists, psychiatrists, and behavioral experts whose primary expertise is to mold societies like crazy clay.
The Scheme, as described by the Himmlerian doppelganger and figurehead of the WEF, Klaus Schwab, consists of a world hegemony of transhumanists split into two layers: a society of happy worker drones who own nothing and an elite caste of techno-demigods who own everything and live forever in a perfect symbiosis with the progeny of HAL 9000.
It sounds like a 1970s Star Trek episode. Maybe it is. It’s so ridiculous in any case that people don’t take it seriously – which may be precisely why they have a comedic villain announce it on a public stage.
The best place to hide things is in plain sight – and for extra special effects, to sprinkle it with a bit of absurdity.
I used the same strategy with my mother as a rebellious adolescent. She asked what I had planned for Friday night, and I told her I would go out and smoke weed, drink alcohol, chase girls, and cause massive mischief in my neighborhood with a gang of vicious boys. She laughed at me and even gave me some cash, not believing a word of what I said. I was, after all, a good boy.
Many things are hidden in plain sight today – behind obscenely transparent lies – simply because the construction of the Scheme depends on shaping pretty much every aspect of society.
If we zoom out of the normative reality, take a breather, and center, we may glimpse the forest for the trees. A planetary Elysium that is erasing cultural and demographic diversity, individual autonomy, and national sovereignty.
Wars have always been a convenient tool for this type of shapeshifting, having the power to redefine borders and alliances swiftly. It takes more than geopolitical carpet bombing, however, to alter the collective consciousness of a planet.
It takes Plato’s Cave, a vast shadow puppet theatre, where we stare at the projections of wars and crises – interspersed with sports and entertainment. In this symbolic world, the Engineers hide above the surface, tanning and fixing martinis. Launching wars and crises has become so routine for them that it requires no more than a napkin and a pen to sketch a global disaster. The ingredients are boilerplate.
Every new drama begins with a fresh mind program. The main ingredients are division, the undermining of safety and belonging, and disconnection from our identity – nation, group, culture, race, heritage, and even gender – conditioning us to accept the otherwise unacceptable “solution” waiting for us next.
Remember the last pandemic? Same formula.
Crisis (virus) -> Fear -> Isolation -> Division -> Solution (mandates + lockdowns + vaccinations).
Every intrusion on individual and national sovereignty conditions us to accept one that goes a bit deeper. The bigger the crisis, the more obscene the “solution” and the more mind conditioning it takes.
When the media trumpets blare with the rising octave of WWIII, what could the “solution” be about this time?
It’s only through the limitless ingenuity of behavioral modification that we fail to ask this question every time a new crisis begins. A custom-designed narrative has already triggered our emotions and numbed our rational faculties.
The Engineers, on the other hand, stay all but emotional. They are blithely detached from the physical reality. For them, our reality is a spin on an ant colony. The end game justifies the means, giving them the license to commit mass atrocities if necessary. They’re trying to save the planet, after all, from ourselves.
“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law,” as Aleister Crowley (1875-1947), the beast of man, said in the early 20th century. Crowley hung out with some of the luminaries who would have a crucial role in shaping the psychology of the masses.
(Mi) Can The Root Of Evil Lurk In A Meme?
Are there truly evil people out there, or is it just that they have somehow contracted a terrible idea that makes them behave in a particular (evil) way?
The term “meme” was coined by British evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins in his 1976 book “The Selfish Gene.” Dawkins used it to describe an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person like a virus, functioning as a unit for belief and behavior.
What is the meme that drove the Engineers to devise the Grand Scheme?
Often, when people have a compulsive need to control their environment, it originates from the fear of betrayal, being a victim of a hostile environment or force.
One such candidate for a hostile environment is the modern scientific understanding of the Universe as an expression of random order and decay.
As modern science began to replace religion with the rise of Copernicus, Newton, Darwin, and their colleagues, we could suddenly predict the movements of planets and objects without a mysterious force. The ensuing Industrial Revolution reshaped our world into a material miracle where more people could enjoy basic comforts and fancy gadgets.
The intellectuals and worker classes were ready to give up centuries of religious dogma – especially the part with the vengeful God – for material manna.
The Europeans had already wiped out the indigenous cultures whose belief in universal consciousness helped them live in harmony with nature since the time of the hunters and gatherers. The original people respected every stone, tree, animal, and creature as manifestations of a great spirit, what modern quantum physicists would refer to as an organizing principle or syntropy. This type of belief system fosters individuals who are already in their mother’s bosom, so to speak. They don’t need to hoard assets beyond their basic needs or control their environment to find peace and purpose.
In the Native American culture, the individual is born self-actualized. Under the Maslowian program, we must work hard to fill a pyramid of needs (physiological, safety, social, and esteem) before we can even dream of self-actualization.
The rise of Western civilization broke our connection to native wisdom when we moved our existential headquarters to the frontal lobe, attempting to control and reason every part of our existence. We lost our connection to the Universe and nature, meaning we lost contact with ourselves.
Ergo, our material revolution came at a significant cost, as we adopted a series of faulty memes, starting with the Universe as a cold, uncaring, and unconscious dissolver of life. Another meme outlined the evolution of man through random mutations and the survival of the fittest. Yet another meme gave birth to our zero-sum ideology: we can only win if someone else loses. And let’s not forget the meme of the DNA, the central code that supposedly defines us and can be manipulated just like any other machine.
In short, we turned out to be machines in a crumbling Universe, fighting for our lives.
What else to do with such a set of memes than go out there and make a killing before someone else beats us to the punch?
Maybe a handful of people took these memes so seriously that they hoarded almost everything in their grasp, building multigenerational dynasties to control and assimilate humanity, never mind the collateral damage.
Maybe what we are witnessing today is the last phase of that assimilation.
(Fa) The Malthusians Who Shaped A Century
When we study the history of social engineering, we discover some of the century’s great philosophers, psychologists, and sociologists, some of whom had a troubling affinity with the Malthusian worldview.
The economist Thomas Malthus (1766-1834) argued that population growth would inevitably surpass the food and resource supply, leading to famine, war, and disease. Humanity, therefore, required “preventive checks,” another meme that gained rapid traction in intellectual circles as eugenics.
Malthus got the idea from Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), who, in 1751, noted how rapidly the colonies of North America were growing. Franklin was apprehensive about the wave of settlers who could “gradually eat the Natives out.”
The timing was unfavorable, coinciding with the rise of mechanical, reductionist science, a perfect breeding ground for eugenics.
By the end of the 19th century, the idea of eugenics was as popular as horse buggies, commonly understood as a necessary doctrine to secure humanity’s survival, somewhat analogous to today’s Net Zero movement.
By the early 20th century, most countries agreed that excess population growth and migration could lead to resource shortages and that an aggressive depopulation policy was necessary. But they disagreed on who would set the agenda and how.1
Enter American biologist Raymond Pearl (1879-1940), the highest-paid professor at Johns Hopkins University and a member of the governing councils of the National Academy of Sciences and the National Research Council, who proclaimed at the 1912 Eugenics Congress that scientists should take the lead in shaping the future of human evolution with Malthusian controls.
John D. Rockefeller (1839-1937), who was passionate about eugenics, agreed. He funded the first study on fertility in 1927, intending to target low-income people. He sought “some simple measure which will be available for the wife of the slum-dweller, the peasant, or the coolie, though dull of mind.”
Interestingly, less than 20 years prior, The Rockefeller Foundation, in collaboration with the Carnegie Foundation, financed the 1910 Flexner Report. This influential study labeled the prevailing healing practices like homeopathy, herbal medicine, and chiropractic care as unscientific quackery. The US Congress adopted Flexner’s recommendations, reshaping healthcare and medical education, marginalizing natural treatments and dietary education while promoting synthetic, toxin-laden alternatives derived from the petrochemical industry—a sector the Rockefellers had monopolized since the 19th century.
In one of the most remarkable coincidences of the 20th century, the same individual who had been instrumental in steering medicine toward allopathic practices—hijacking the medical education system, the media, and the healthcare industry —was now redirecting his funding toward the “global population problem.”
In 1952, Rockefeller organized a major conference to discuss population issues, which led to the formation of the Population Council, a global nonprofit operating in 18 countries and employing over 500 people.
By the sixties, the Population Council, the International Planned Parenthood Federation, the Ford and Rockefeller foundations, key UN agencies, and the World Bank were leading the charge on population control. The movement gained support from 30 world leaders, including US President Lyndon Johnson, who emphasized the “importance of family planning for human dignity.”
The eugenic agenda included both soft measures – such as family planning and contraception – and more covert measures that included mass sterilization (chemical and surgical) and vaccination of indigent demographics in ways that lowered fertility dramatically.
The term “eugenics” was facing mounting controversy by then, as critics pointed out its failure to account for human innovation and adaptability, not to mention human rights. Eugenics had been a darling policy of the Nazis in WWII, after all.
It was time for a savvy rebranding effort for the term, and what better way to do that than to introduce a global existential crisis that humans caused.
Enter the Club of Rome, a global think tank established in 1968 to address “humanity’s challenges.” Their 1972 report, The Limits to Growth, predicted that the world would run out of essential resources like oil, natural gas, and metals by the early 2000s, just like Thomas Malthus had envisioned, leading to the collapse of civilization shortly after.
The Limits to Growth was a commissioned fairy tale from beginning to end. When these predictions did not come true, Gaya Herrington, a Dutch sustainability researcher and adviser to the Club of Rome, updated the timeline to around 2040.
This leads us to the present Climate Crisis and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, another Malthusian-inspired narrative by the usual suspects for the same reason: To take control of international institutions and governments under the pretext of a global existential crisis due to “man-made” climate change.
As is beginning to be evident, the people in charge might change, but as long as the same meme infects them, they continue the same folly.
The eugenics agenda was always an essential component of the Grand Scheme. Still, the most significant progress in shapeshifting our civilization took place via social conditioning.
(So) Birthing The Brave New World
The art of manipulating the collective mindset is as old as civilization. The Romans were masters in this game. They took our ancient calendar of 13 lunar phases – aligning with women’s menstrual cycles, a rhythm that carried profound significance in cultures worldwide since time immemorial – and replaced it with a 12-month system set around Roman culture and mythology. By linking cultural and religious events to this new calendar, the Romans influenced the memes and routines of their society, disconnecting people from their past.
The knowledge and understanding of our past is empowering. The essence of social engineering denotes the opposite: disempowerment and disconnection from our history, heritage, and identity.
The Engineers of today know this as well as the Romans did. We also know this if we study some of the leading scholars of the early 20th century.
Lord Bertrand Russell (1872-1970), the fireball intellectual of the early 20th century, a member of the Frankfurt Institute, and a proponent of one-world government, was one of the figureheads of the social engineering movement. He wrote in his 1951 book, The Impact of Science on Society:
“I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology.… Its importance has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda. Of these, the most influential is what is called ‘education.’ Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio play an increasing part.… It may be hoped that in time, anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment. The subject will make great strides when it is taken up by scientists under a scientific dictatorship. The social psychologists of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. Various results will soon be arrived at. First, that the influence of home is obstructive. Second, not much can be done unless indoctrination begins before the age of ten. Third, that verses set to music and repeatedly intoned are very effective. Fourth, the opinion that snow is white must be held to show a morbid taste for eccentricity. But I anticipate. It is for future scientists to make these maxims precise and discover exactly how much it costs per head to make children believe that snow is black, and how much less it would cost to make them believe it is dark gray.”
About the science of social engineering, Russell concluded: “Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen.”
In 1948, Bertrand Russell came out with a book called Towards World Government, which described the raison d’etre for the one-world government.
Russell had a lot of inside information that he hid in plain sight in his writings. He sat in the epicenter of some of the Engineers, being the grandson of Lord John Russell (1798-1878), twice prime minister during the reign of Queen Victoria, the era when astronomical wealth landed on the lap of a handful of dynasties via the British East India Company’s colonial plunder, slave trade, and ultimately the real breadwinner, opium.
Lord John Russell, with all his power, couldn’t have been blind to the opium trade filling the empire’s pockets. The lion’s share went to the high table—the gentry, the bankers, and a handful of families. It wasn’t just pocket change; we’re talking about wealth that could topple nations washed into foundations, charities, and institutions that still pull the levers of world trade today.
The drug meme carried over to the next generation, as Bertrand Russell himself proposed the development of “mass drugging of populations as a method of social control, through the decriminalization of marijuana and other dangerous psychotropic drugs and the modification of the use of linguistics to provide methods of mass social manipulation.”
A close associate of Bertrand Russell was the man who invented time travel, at least in literary form. HG Wells (1866-1946) was a chap woven into the fabric of a new era and, like Russell, a man flirting with the slippery ideals of eugenics.
Russell, with his logic and mathematics, saw the world through numbers and sometimes saw people as problems to be solved. Wells spun these ideas into stories, visions of utopias where eugenics, the double-edged sword, promised a healthier, smarter brood but teetered on the brink of elitism and inequality.
Their combined aura infected another figurehead of the time, Aldous Huxley (1894-1963), author of The Brave New World, who happened to be the grandson of Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895), the famous biologist whose enthusiastic support of Charles Darwin (1809-1882) would help his theory of natural selection break through to the mainstream.
Darwin had lifted parts of his theory on natural selection from Malthus’ Essay on Population but remained unacknowledged before Huxley discovered him.
Thomas Huxley was a highly influential figure of his time. His support for Darwin had an ulterior motive: to leverage the theory of natural selection to pardon the need for a liberal imperialist policy. Since evolutionary reality was about the survival of the fittest, the imperialists needed to act the part.4
Huxley perceived the rapid growth of German, Russian, and American industrialization as a grave danger to the British Empire, writing in 1887 that Britain was entering “upon the most serious struggle for existence to which this country was ever committed,” a clear sign he saw world trade as a zero-sum game.
Incidentally, this was the siren song to WWI and WWII, which the Engineers foresaw decades before its onset. The masses had to be socially conditioned first with anti-German imagery and tales – featuring a Keiser and German soldiers who slaughtered babies- a propaganda tool that has worked well through generations. 5
Germany and the United States of America represented a clear and present threat of becoming empires themselves, which would slow down the path to a one-world government and undermine the British Empire.
In the late 19th century, the Engineers whose fortunes were magnified by the British East India Company loved Thomas Huxley and his endeavor to justify global plunder with a scientific spin.
Huxley had tremendous resources and networks at his disposal when he founded the X Club, a dining club of nine influential men who supported the theories of natural selection and academic liberalism. Their influence on science and society would ripple through the ages.
With Huxley at its helm, the club sought to promote a vision of science unfettered by the shackles of ecclesiastical dogma. In this vision, inquiry, and evidence held sway over tradition and superstition. They dined, debated, and shaped the policies of scientific organizations, such as the Royal Society, ensuring that the scientific method was the compass by which the ship of progress would navigate.
For all its championing of rational inquiry, the X Club was setting the foundations of societal engineering. In their quest for progress, they flirted with scientism—the belief that empirical methods of the sciences are either the most or the only legitimate avenue of human inquiry.
The members of the club were George Busk, Edward Frankland, Thomas Archer Hirst, Joseph Dalton Hooker, Thomas Henry Huxley, Francis Galton, John Lubbock, Herbert Spencer, William Spottiswoode, and John Tyndall, united by a “devotion to science, pure and free, untrammeled by religious dogmas.”
The X Club met monthly from November 1864 until March 1893 and set the boilerplates for modern science and education.
Author Matthew Ehret writes about X Club: “Huxley aimed to unite all major branches of physics, biology, economics, and sociology under a singular coherent interpretation based on gradualist, descriptive, reductionist science. This would be a new, unified, internally consistent science that would iron out the evidence of all creative leaps that shape all living and non-living nature. This group realized that if nature could be modeled as a closed, decaying, and random process, it would also be devoid of any actual notion of principle, justice, or morality. This would be a conception of nature in which empires could forever justify the exploitation of their victims.6
The ultimate legacy of The X Club mixed Darwin’s natural selection, eugenics, and the theory of social Darwinism – which justified the weeding out of the weak – into a unified belief system that served the Grand Scheme of the Engineers.
Is the world that Aldous Huxley described in Brave New World simply a coincidence in this context?
“A dystopian future where the State meticulously engineers society to ensure stability and happiness. A world where individuals are genetically predestined and conditioned for their roles in a caste system, ranging from the intelligent Alphas to the menial Epsilons. Human reproduction is entirely divorced from sexuality and conducted in Hatcheries, where embryos are artificially grown and conditioned for their predetermined roles. The concept of family is obsolete, and personal relationships are transient. Hedonism is the norm, supported by the government-sanctioned drug “soma,” which provides an escape from any momentary stress or unhappiness. Technology and conditioned responses govern every aspect of life, ensuring conformity and suppressing individuality while maintaining societal equilibrium.”
Aldous was either a talented fortune teller or exceptionally well-informed.
(La) The Minds Who Mold The Masses
X Club set the ideological framework for the future of social engineering institutions like the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations and the Frankfurt School, Stanford Research Institute, the Institute for Social Relations, Frankfurt Institute for Social Research, World Federation for Mental Health, and countless other international research organizations in applied social psychiatry that educated, trained, and conditioned scholars with new behavioral models.
The leading sociologists and psychologists of these establishments shaped the fabric of the 20th century with ideologies that defined feminism, critical race theory, queer theory, post-structuralism, postcolonialism, corporate culture, and the American cultural revolution, among others.7
Some of their behavioral theories were weaponized to erode empires and nations from the inside with the wisdom of the Romans: disempowerment and disconnection from our past, heritage, and identity.
Most luminaries believed they were serving humanity and progress, even if it meant devising ways to demolish both.
John Rawlings Rees (1890-1969) was a British military psychiatrist and a master of psywar counterinsurgency who became the medical director of the Tavistock Clinic in 1933. In his book, The Shaping of Psychiatry by War, Rees called for the development of “psychiatric shock troops to develop methods of political control based upon driving the majority of the human population toward psychosis.” His specialty was behavioral modification, and his goal was to render the population submissive under the post-World War II economic world order. Rees also became a high-level CIA asset.8
Kurt Lewin (1890-1947), often referred to as the founder of social psychology, was instrumental in the development of the “change management” theory, which he described as a “concerted program to eliminate the sickness of national patriotism, belief in truth, and family love.”
Elliott Jaques (1917-2003), A Canadian-born psychoanalyst and founding member of Tavistock Institute of Human Relations who authored over 20 books and was known for coining the term “mid-life crisis,” focused his studies on reprogramming corporate culture, human behavior, and social institutions. Elliot developed a scientific process to evaluate the cognitive capability of individuals in the context of work complexity, an approach used by US armed services and large corporations.
Max Horkheimer(1895-1973), the original head of the Frankfurt School, was famous for his work in critical theory and for developing concepts relating to authoritarianism and the culture industry. He was also one of the founders of the World Federation of Mental Health, which catered to Rees’ idea of “psychiatric shock troops.”9
Herbert Marcuse (1898-1979), a German-American philosopher, social critic, and political theorist from the Frankfurt School, has been credited with the New Left movement of the 1960s. Some scholars claim Marcuse’s work in critical theory was used to pacify segments of the society with “free love and drugs,” particularly the youth that was against the Vietnam War. The experiment supposedly peaked at Woodstock, where half a million “flower children” dropped acid. CIA spooks helped to propagate the tabs in a closely monitored mass drug experiment.
Erich Fromm (1900-1980), A social psychologist who analyzed the psychological mechanisms driving political and economic systems, another leading Frankfurt School figure who devoted much of his seminal 1972 work, The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness, to the analysis of necrophilia, which he defined as “all forms of obsession with death and destruction, particularly those with intense sexual overtones.” Ironically, his apparent ‘cure’ for this mass social perversion was the drug, rock, and sex counterculture of the late 1960s.10
Theodor Adorno (1903-1969), one of the most influential philosophers and social critics in Germany after WWII, co-authored The Authoritarian Personality and was a prominent critic of the culture industry, argued that modern society was a “hotbed of evil, authoritarianism, and potential fascism, and that, only by first destroying civilization, through the spread of all forms of cultural pessimism and perversity, could liberation occur.”
Adorno also wrote openly about how both Tavistock and the Frankfurt School not just studied Nazi propaganda techniques but also integrated them into their agenda to “program a mass culture as a form of extensive social control that would steadily degrade its consumers.” This would ultimately lead to a major cultural shift in America that featured absurd “leftist” programs to undermine society.11
Author Christopher Rufo, in America’s Cultural Revolution: How The Radical Left Conquered Everything, describes a takeover of the American institutions with a movement that “replaced constitutional equality with a race-based redistribution” and several other memes that had a destructive effect on American society, including the concept of “doublespeak” and “diversity and inclusion.”12
Doublespeak introduced ideas that had no other purpose than to numb the mind, examples being “progress is a lack of progress,” “equality is not equality,” “speech is violence,” “violence is speech,” and so on.
Another person whose work overlapped with Tavistock was Dr. Gregory Bateson, an English anthropologist, social scientist, linguist, visual anthropologist, semiotician, and cyberneticist whose career intersected with a variety of fields and institutions, including those connected to the MKUltra program.13
MKUltra was a multibillion-dollar covert CIA project that ran from the 1950s until 1973 and studied human behavioral manipulation and demoralization with methods like “depatterning” (which caused disorientation and confusion via ‘massive’ and ‘pervasive’ memory disturbance on both individuals and groups using mixtures of electroshock therapy, torture, and drugs) and “psychic driving” (psychological methods used to get rid of unwanted behavior).
All in all, there were 149 MK-ULTRA subprojects involved with research into behavior modification, hypnosis, drug effects, psychotherapy, truth serums, pathogens, and toxins in human tissues.
Supposedly, this was all about preparation for a war with the Soviet Union. Still, as is beginning to be more evident, the same techniques have been deployed against the general populations worldwide as part of social engineering protocols – to divide and undermine traditional structures and belief systems, to enforce healthcare mandates, and ultimately condition people for the Grand Scheme of “uniting the world.”
MKUltra had many similarities with another program run by Eric Trist and Frederick Emery, who were both CIA assets while running the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at Tavistock’s Sussex University facility. The Future Shocks program was designed to generate social turbulence with energy shortages, economic and financial collapse, or terrorist attacks – with a series of events introduced so fast that the human brain cannot absorb the information. After continuous shocks, the targeted population loses willpower and the ability to make choices. Apathy takes over, often preceded by mindless violence. Such a group becomes easy to control and will docilely follow any orders without rebelling. The stated end goal of the program was to “drive the entire society into a state of mass psychosis as individuals would become disassociated, as they tried to flee from the terror of the shocking, emerging reality; people would withdraw into a state of denial, retreating into popular entertainments and diversions, while being prone to outbursts of rage.”
Trist believed that TV programming was an essential part of this venture.
“All television has a dissociative effect on mental capabilities, making people less able to reason. As they become habituated to watching six hours or more of television daily, viewers surrender their powers of reason to the images and sound coming from the tube,” wrote Trist.14
Another interesting intellectual of the mid-century was Oskar Morgenstern (1902 – 1977), co-innovator of the Game Theory, along with John Von Neumann (1903-1957).
Game theory played a dominant role in both military planning and corporate strategies. It relies on the assumption that human behavior is driven by self-interest in a world constrained by limited resources and a zero-sum reality – the classic X Club memes.
The author Cynthia Chung argues that Game theory doesn’t consider the possibility of human innovation, cooperation, adaptation, and sharing. Contrary to the X Club dictums, the world is not a “closed system,” and rational behavior isn’t always compulsively self-interested.15
One more name worth mentioning is Sir Julian Huxley (1887 – 1975), whose grandfather was Thomas Huxley, brother of Aldous Huxley, and close ally of Bertrand Russell – part of one big happy family.
Julian was the first Director of UNESCO, the president of the British Eugenics Society (1959-1962), and the first president of the British Humanist Association, who coined the term “transhumanism.” He took his grandfather’s ideas to the next level by envisioning the future of our planet under a UNESCO declaration of “one world citizenship… a path to permanent world peace, evolving human society from tribes to nations, and from national consciousness to one world.”16
Huxley shared his grandfather’s devout belief in universal entropy by saying, “Nowhere in all its vast extant is there any trace of purpose, or even of prospective significance. It is impelled from behind by blind physical forces, a gigantic jazz dance of particles and radiations in which the only overall tendency we have so far been able to detect is that summarized in the second law of thermodynamics- the tendency to run down.”
In 1945, Huxley proposed to melt the polar ice caps by igniting atomic bombs to moderate the world climate in the northern hemisphere.17
By diving into the mindsets of these luminaries, we may finally understand why we have landed in a world dominated by scientism, predatory capitalism, serial wars and crises, eroding cities, and a public health pandemic that is both psychological and physiological, fueled by a mass-scale dependency on drugs and distractions – as if every day was a scramble for survival.
According to the modern worldview, the Universe is out to get us. The world is now eating itself up like the dragon that devours its tail.
Social engineering has now reached near total infiltration of humanity, controlling most governments and international institutions to pave the way for a centralized, homogeneous world order.
In a bittersweet satire of epic proportions, the Engineers and their clan believe they are on the right side of history – about to save humanity from itself.
All evil lurks behind good intentions. The ultimate evil lurks in the meme that intends to save the planet.
(Si) The “Solution” We Can Not Accept
Flash forward a century to the Present, the New Normal.
Tap yourself in the back. You have survived history’s most sophisticated and extensive onslaught against civilization.
You’re either a lucky Oompa Loompa or a particularly resistant one.
You’ve endured bioweapons that raised excess death rates by 15-25 percent globally and dropped fertility rates by at least a similar whopper.
You withstood modern “health” protocols that killed people en masse in hospitals and retirement homes.
You outmaneuvered lockdowns, masks, fear programs, energy and food inflation, engineered wars, microwaves, and the bureaucrats and marionettes who enforce totalitarian dictums with straight faces.
You navigated the dopamine-tripping social algorithms and MSM content designed to make you dumb, distracted, and fearful.
You paraglided over serial wars of nations, cultures, religions, races, ethnicities, and genders.
Wokism. Inclusion. Leftism. Corruption. Zombyism. Ad infinitum.
All “Future Shocks” – just by another name.
We may have survived so far, but not without conditioning.
This all begs the question: What is the next “solution” we must pay attention to – through the veil of wars and crises?
Here is one suggestion.
The World Health Organization, funded by private interests with zero accountability, full immunity, and complete tax exemption, is aiming to have its 194 member states ratify the new International Health Regulations (IHR) by May 2024, the key highlights of which are:
- The power to declare any potential threat as a Public Health Emergency Of International Concern (PHEIC) under which they can override the sovereignty of individual member states with any arbitrary regulations, including lockdowns, mandates, and enforced healthcare procedures, even if they are highly experimental.
- The recommendations will become binding and must be enforced by the member states.
- Non-compliant states can be punished with sanctions and other economic strangleholds by the UN and WHO.
- Member states must also adopt censorship and information control guidelines to steer public opinion, thereby suspending independent information outlets that disagree with the WHO narrative.
- The new regulations will have no quality control, checks or balances, or other procedures to question the central authority of WHO.
- The new regulations have deleted the clauses on human dignity and fundamental human rights.
IHR 2024 is closely followed by Agenda 2030, featuring the elimination of independent farming, the rise of a total surveillance state, the takeover of the financial system with CBDCs, the forcible relocation of people into 15-minute cities, and more or less a total loss of individual and national sovereignty under the pretexts of “eradicating poverty, enhancing health and education, achieving gender equality, ensuring environmental sustainability, and fostering peace and justice.”
Knowing history and the minds that shaped it today, how much of this yarn should we swallow for tomorrow?
(Do) Taking Charge Of Our Reality
Doubt is precious. We need to foster suspicions. Feed them with water and nutrients. Give them love and attention so they grow like hybrid meat-eating wonders, shining bright and biting fingers off, if necessary.
The catch is that doubts make us less productive. Certainty, action, and unwavering resolve are the building blocks of our performance culture. “Just Do It,” says Nike, with child labor.
We suppress doubts deep inside the subconscious. Especially doubts that might jeopardize our sense of belonging. The ultimate punishment for us is exclusion from our social circle, a fear of such magnitude that it explains why the perfect conspiracies – like social engineering ventures – are not just possible but also entirely common.
The fear of social exclusion is why we go along with the tsunamis of manipulation, however absurd the trends that wash over us.
Something dramatic must happen to the individual before they can break the eggshell of mass-induced belief models. Groups never break out unless a single egg hatches first.
When we look for answers, it’s good to consider that the “who” is not as critical to understanding as the “why” they’re doing it. After all, the Engineers of deception have been with us for centuries, maybe millennia, changing faces and titles, but rarely ever the purpose.
The “why,” as we’ve seen in the last century, is based on the need for control.
The need for control, in turn, is based on a twisted belief model that imagines a cold, purposeless and disconnected Universe.
Ergo, what we are dealing with ultimately is fear.
The guiding force of the Engineers is fear of losing control.
The only possible response to fear – whether it’s originating in your enemy or yourself – is courage.
Imagine yourself as a protagonist in an epic myth of biblical proportions. You realize your tribe is under attack, getting slowly wiped out by an invisible enemy. Most tribe members think it’s all just a series of coincidences. Transient turbulence. The majority decide to “stay positive” and “accept every day as it comes.”
If you go along with the majority, knowing what you do, you compromise your integrity.
If you act according to your conscience, you may be labeled a conspiracy theorist, a crackpot, and become an outsider. Still, you have a chance – however fractional – of saving at least some tribe members.
Which way would you like to be remembered by the history books?
Which energy do you represent? Courage or compliance?
With history books, I mean the cosmic annals kept in the universal vault – also known as the Zero Point – that perpetually records every emotion, intent, and action of every living organism.
The Native American warriors who rode into battle with spears and arrows against machine guns called it the Great Spirit. They knew their courage would never fade from memory. It would inspire generations forward.
At least ninety-five percent of the population will comply by staying asleep. No blame attached. That’s just the way we operate as a superorganism. There never was and never will be a collective awakening. The masses never initiate change. The bigger the group, the sleepier the sum effect.
If there were such a dynamic as a mass awakening, the majority would never have swallowed the recent absurdities nor what is about to unfold – a formidably more absurd future.
All of the above can only lead us to a single – terrifying and, simultaneously, infinitely exhilarating – conclusion.
Only individual courage can save the future.
