FRIDAY RAVE 4 - The Important Role of the Dissenting Voice
Updated: Sep 29
We must never forget how our brave soldiers fought, with many dying, so that we could be free. Freedom of speech and with it the right to express one’s views, is a privilege we must cherish and protect. Ethically, we should all speak up, in some form, to express what we stand for. Even more so when we are facing a threat. The censorship we have all witnessed these past years, should sound as a warning bell, that freedom must never be taken for granted.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” (Former US President Ronald Reagan)
Today's Friday Rave was inspired from a remarkable conversation with Mattias Desmet, author of the “Psychology of Totalitarianism”. I recommend it to you as it is extremely interesting and challenging.
The fear and divide caused by Covid and the subsequent response of governments and the mainstream media, has settled for most people. Once again catastrophic predictions by globalist politicians, scientists and the media didn’t eventuate. It is worth becoming informed about the mass formation psychosis that was formed due to Covid and the importance of never being afraid to speak up, particularly when your viewpoint is a dissenting one.
As you will hear in the interview and read in Desmet’s book, it is the absence of dissenting voices that plays a substantial role in the rise of the totalitarian state. The absence of resistance to Hitler in the mid 1930’s is a well known example.
Those who don’t run with the masses have a crucial role to play. You should find it interesting, as you watch the video and/or read the book, as it talks about how and why people responded as they did over the past couple of Covid dominated years. We are all indirectly mentioned in the video and book. Were you swept away by the Covid mass formation psychosis? Were you a follower of the masses and/or government narrative? Were you a dissenting voice?
Where do you sit in the increasing mass formation of fear, regarding man made climate change catastrophe, as the globalist elite and globalist mainstream media, indoctrinate the masses with a false narrative, to implement their Technocratic agenda (‘The Great Reset’).
One day, in the future, when they want to lock us down to protect the environment from manmade climate change catastrophe, will you be complicit? The reasons for lockdown are explained in the video.
For those who defend the manmade climate change catastrophe narrative/hoax. I smell a rat in the cheese factory, when data is being eradicated or falsified. If your narrative is true you don’t need to eradicate records and falsify data with cherry picked dates or bogus systems of collecting data. (the Australian Bureau of Meteorology gets a gold star for that one https://youtu.be/ULrRo_iowG0) The scary fact, of how many people are willing to both accept the eradication and manipulation of data, to support a chosen narrative addressing their personal fear, is also covered in the book. In his 2003 Phd, the Author of psychology of Totalitarianism, Mattias Desmet researched the methodological problems in academic research which gave rise to the claim that up to 85% of academic papers are seriously flawed, and even more scarily, only 5% of people really cared about it.
Desmet raises a thought provoking point for Democratic countries, like Australia, where the politicians are elected (controlled) by the people. For elected politicians to take control back from the people, they must control the people, by indoctrinating them to their agenda. The globalist dominated mainstream media, with its fear campaigns, is a potent weapon to achieve this. (ie man made climate change catastrophe and more recently the use of Covid - “Never let a good crisis go to waste” Winston Churchill)
With this knowledge it is even more important the dissenting 5% continue to speak out.
Just as I don't expect everybody to agree with what I say, I don’t agree with everything that Mattias Desmet raises. So with your critical thinking cap on, I encourage people to be open to be challenged or become better informed by watching the video interview and then reading the book “The Psychology of Totalitarianism”.
Just because the interview is done by Conservative commentator, Tucker Carlson, I encourage you to not ignore it, as you should find it interesting discovering where you fit into the scheme during COVID and the challenge and boundaries of rational thought.
