It wasn’t but a week ago that our future looked brighter than it had in the last two years. The mandates were lifting and science was finally switching teams to join the side of rationality.
Then… FULL STOP.
But now, within just a few short days, all of those armchair virology experts, who told you that your healthy, un-vaccinated body is a deadly threat to those who double mask and have already taken 3-4 doses of the experimental jab, have just become overnight experts in foreign policy and the mind of Vladimir Putin. Too bad they won’t be becoming experts in history as well.
I won’t comment much on the fact that the fervor being whipped up around Ukraine is ominously duplicitous and phony, because when you look at how people have reacted, or NOT-reacted, to the ongoing genocide in Yemen, the devastation of Libya and Syria, and the catastrophic occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, you see that public zeal only flows where mainstream media goes. (Disclaimer: My firm position is that the Ukraine invasion is terrible, cruel, evil, insane, heart-breaking, depressing, and worse, but that’s because I’m experienced at being anti-war and at recoiling at the actions of the state… whichever state.)
For anyone who refuses to let said mainstream media live rent-free in their mind, it’s easier than ever to see just how little original, critical thought takes place between the ears of the average Joe CNN watcher. It’s called mind control, and the chief symptom is parroting ideas that aren’t yours about issues that don’t concern you. It’s cultish. And often psychotic.
Now, psychosis in an individual is an interesting thing to witness.
I’ve seen it a few times in my work with shamanic plant medicines, and to be honest, it’s quite scary. Sometimes in that setting, people lose grip on reality, and what invariably happens is that some repressed part of their shadow self crawls its way up to the command center and takes the helm. It’s phenomenal because when this happens it’s always shadow. People don’t slip into psychosis and start acting like The Dalai Lama.
