Erik, Another awesome post, I agree whole heartedly, Sun Tzu said in the Art of War, the best way to win a fight is don't be there, it takes 2 to fight. If you don't show up you won. He also states that if you are reduced to war you have already lost! Discernment is required and many have been manipulated by the indoctrination system we call SKool, When they stop teaching math, English, science and start teaching grade school children with their forming brains that they can chose what gender they want to be and allowing them to be cats and poop and pee in a litter box the absurdity of sending children to those places becomes more relevant to the observers. This is why Homeschooling is becoming more and more popular. The parents see the agenda of public SKool as an indoctrination camp and not a learning facility. The education system doesn't identify a student's strengths and weaknesses and teach that child to do more of what they love to do. No they squash any individualism out of the children and abuse them to conform to the structure that isn't child friendly or a benefit for the child. Academics is part of the system of systems that is flawed intentionally. We are watching the collapse of the system of systems, the question is was this a planned crash or did we blow the engines off in mid flight to keep from infecting others... Love your work... Great article... Peace

I honestly wish I could sit down and show you what I have uncovered since I retired in 1984. I began really studying the stock markets and how they have performed since 1837! The key today is in seeing what we have lost due to socialism.

Actually the real loss has become serious since 2008. I can prove that the markets grew at an average annual compound rate of 8% for over 100 years including the 1929 crash, the 1987 crash and what went on in 2000. Still, that 8% CAGR held. The problem is we should be at DOW 58,000 today! But we are at just 38,000 or 20,000 points too low. The question is, “Why?”

When we are told the markets are making new highs, we are being misled into buying mediocrity. Donald Trump had America on a trajectory to get back onto our sustainable CAGR. COVID was a roadblock and the stolen election was the end game for killing the recovery that was needed due to Obama’s picking of our pockets.

Business in America is what pays for everything. The stock markets measure business’ ability to grow over time. That ability can be clearly graphed since 1837 to today and the collapse in the growth rate is irrefutable if we look at it. The problem is no one is looking at it because no one is really trying. The experts are into selling us on how great things are while the ship slowly sinks. There is still money to be made as long as we have buyers and sellers. The ship is going down slowly so the experts just need to outlive the ultimate collapse. I find that attitude to be unacceptable.

2008 was the year the Manchurian candidate, Obama, entered office and began his part of the 16 year plan to destroy America and he partially succeeded, but no matter how many MKULTRA school shootings, he could not remove the guns. In fact gun sales have been on an upward trajectory for years now. I tend to think that, no matter how botched the country is now, the people here live in the only country to buck the control, and as noted, Russia helped. Europe, Asia and nearly every other nation have lived under socialism with fewer rights for a long time. Americans still have an independent streak and the constitution to back it up. That stubbornness is why Obama couldn’t take the guns and why Trump was elected in the first place…..Now, the majority, if not fully awake, is awake to a degree, and that terrifies the cabal and their minions. I do not see us losing this war. Of course, I could be completely wrong, but time will tell. God bless you.🙏

The hardest part for me, since I believe I’m pretty much surrounded by people either fully immersed in wokeness and it’s labeling, or people living in denial, is to disengage, but to what? I live my days with the best of the best(Badlands is at the top of my list) on Truth Social, but find it increasingly difficult to have live meaningful conversations. I’m about at my wits end finding real live people, not to convince so much(they’ll wake up in due time), but to befriend for like mindedness. Not looking for sympathy, just more tangible progress, I guess. Undoubtedly it’s coming and always know God/Jesus are there for me. Loved the pinpoint article. God Bless!!!

I am getting off X because there are too many brainwashed idiots who just repeat what the fake news says. They cant think for themselves and it drives me crazy and i end up replying with some mean words and responding to their name calling which is not me. You cannot debate these people cuz they have no logic or common sense. Ain’t never in a million yrs going to change their mind. Great Great post agree with everything 100%...thanks

Excellent. Thanks for all the hard work codifying this. I, too, revisited Orwell and Huxley.

Excellent Commentary on how totalitarian authoritarians corrupt our language to erode the ability of people to Think Clearly. … As any good Psychological Warfare Expert will tell you, if you can make people’s words “fuzzy,” you make their thinking “fuzzy.” If you can make their thinking fuzzy, you can control how they act, what they do. … THAT is a highly effective way to take over and subjugate a population of people. … I watched it happening way back in the Sixties when “They” replaced the Phonics Method of Reading with Dick, Jane, & Spot — the stars of the Look-Say Method of “Reading.” … I was only 16 years old (53 years ago) when I wrote my first essay on communism. It was titled: “Dick & Jane Is A Communist Plot.”

About 25 loons with rainbows and signs that read "Trans people lives matter too" in front of Chick filet in OHIO yesterday. This is the second Sunday in a row. Who ever said they didnt matter? Every life matters. This isnt about lives mattering, its about pushing this garbage on our kids lives. Obviously, something is about to be pushed in the D Party. Big Mikes coming out party,,,Ill bet!The net is erasing all negative video. Lets remember Gay marriage wasn't legal until 2012, they're "married" in 1992. Never legit 1st lady has some spla'nin to do and yrs of Tax Payer money to pay back. Criminal Charges for fraud are in order!

All I can say about this BOOMING economy the MEDIA is peddling, is that 6 local small mom and pop food businesses within a mile from me closed over the last month. If that's GROWTH, I must be living in an alternate reality from those rich guys and gals making money!

Erik, Thank You for this very well written article. I loved reading it!!

The woke mind is a strange place…because they have been educated to believe that their Feelings define reality; they don’t operate from rational thought. Our public schools have done this. (Dr Jan talks about this in some of her interviews). I like to remember this because it helps me have compassion. I hope someday there will be brilliant therapists that can help them recover their own independent minds.

Like you said, “arguing with people who have lost the ability to think logically is pointless. Arguing with them in their state of mind only makes things worse; it causes them to retreat even deeper into their irrational mind.”

I knew Obama reversed the Smith-Mundt Act making it legal for msm to lie but I did not know “when Obama left office, and on his way out the door, he set aside hundreds of millions of dollars of government tax-payer money to fund thousands of woke journalists to write propaganda for two years”!!!!

And thanks for some pertinent summary of 1984…many decades since I read it.

2+2=5 Winston!!

A great read. Thank you for the work you put into it, Erik ❤️🙏🕊

Wow, Erik! This is a truly amazing piece! You have just provided a great college lecture on reality and controlled alternative reality, the history of manipulation, the role of eugenics, the importance (to our would-be rulers) of erasing history, creating false history, destroying our language and attempts to destroy sanity in favor of total unreal mind control, and all the other ways to recreate a global feudal society! The Prussian ideology that was put in the City of London. What a gifted mind God gave you….that is a blessing to all your readers! We recently watched War Games again after decades. It’s amazing to me how many movies I’ve watched and never cared to remember or watch again. But, the writers made a great point that you’ve applied liberally and extremely accurately….”The only winning move is not to play.” You’ve also made another point that is important and that is to not waste time seeking to debate with the true sheep as they will not comprehend. God bless you, Erik.🙏🙏

Remember: war is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength.

I have a T with that quote, this one: t.co/gp7BK55eFB

War is peace is intended to show the unity in hatred of an enemy. Freedom is slavery encourages members to find freedom in serving the party, because they will not find it on their own. Ignorance is strength encourages members to rely on the strength of the party because they cannot possibly know as much.

Thank you. So much history I have studied except the very important part of the Russians preventing the Cabal English from getting to the South. Then paying dearly later with Lenin et al. Wow.

I think it may come to this: enough people have come to the realization that something is very wrong, and enough realize that we need to pay attention to our Legislature, Judicial, and Executive, like never before. First priority is fixing our election process (probably eliminating the need for term limits, in theory). There are some things We The People are not able to do, so we MUST get used to demanding results from our Representatives. This is only the tip of the iceberg, but once Trump re-occupys the White House, the "trainables" will accept fate and go on with their lives like they always have. Your historical nuggets are especially valuable in showing how things were done, and what to look out for in the future
