I was doing some thinking. I was trying to whittle down to the core of what is behind the mass “acceptance” of some alternate reality in which a group on mass feels it is OK to violently siege the Capitol.
I have watched and read…listened and researched other “fights for democracy”… BUT this one is different. So I want to focus on it.
I was raised in the “last days” mentality, as are the majority of Christians (except Catholics? Lol - which I didn’t know, thanks Cranks). Armageddon around the corner. My lifetime alone has seen so many failed end of the world prophecies that it’s comical.
That’s just the religious. Now, at first I didn’t want to go to this mind-set, but then I started thinking . Known conspiracy writers going back to (again my age era) were by-and-large religious (ie William Cooper).
My religion hung onto the “King of the North and King of the South” during the Cold War- tying events together, a tapestry of god’s control and plan.
We were always told - “don’t be afraid” YET at the same time you are fed a constant diet of fear. You are “brave”… facing fear and not let it “get you”.
Ever listen to old Alex Jones 2000 -lead up??? My god, the world was ending. Really. And it was all “planned”.
OR the 2012? NOW to be fair - RARELY were any new Agers (at least the ones I listened too) afraid. They were anticipating a physical (for some, light bodies; or mass awakening to love and light; or whatever else…) BUT there were a mass religious minded group/s that were SERIOUSLY prepping. Planet X or Nibiru … this was the baby to watch for. Nancy Leider ring a bell AND the David Wilcox’s mix of NWO control being won via “outside” events (depends on what - aliens, Planet X,
And in between all the BIG memorable events and failed prophecy and failed doomsayers are the little “guys” making a buck or just enjoying their 5 min of “Fear Fame”.
Personally, I enjoy my “fear” on a roller-coaster or a good scary movie or (now) VR ZOMBIE slaying and survival!!!
I like a boring, non-exciting NOT “living in a movie” as a “good guy” plot to overturn satanic cabals type of a life.
A life decided on by reality. I have seen the “CHOOSE your reality” theme touted (lol) and I think “Jesus fuckin’Christ YOU guys got some multiverse remote control???” They lose the point of “actions being consequences” (for positive or negative) …
God this is long! Sorry
That whole “actions bring consequences” - many of the “patriots” and religious nut balls (JWs incl) are working HARD through their actions to create their reality of “internment” camps (fuck, some dipshit in Canada says they’re here too - a whole 5 min research shit down that fucking turd )
It’s called prison.
Interesting on what fear does to the brain.
May explain much as to memory and learning issues. Just good old brain control (hmmmm, I wonder which group is under a form of control)…
Just a light article in-and-around-Halloween.
I’m sure there are more in depth studies.
