The Plandemic experiment, here’s what they learned;

- Authoritarians could get most of the world to bow to their will over a well-played phantom menace.

- They could dispense with the Nuremberg Codes overnight.

- They could oust political leaders they didn’t like.

- They could eliminate Informed Consent.

- They could initiate a biological clinical trial onto a purported 5.5 billion people.

- They could get most everyone to disregard the long-standing VAERS (Vaccine Event Reporting System) safety data.

- They could potentially collect billions of DNA samples via PCR testing.

- They could convince young and healthy people to believe they were in mortal danger when they weren’t.

- They could redistribute wealth to their distinct advantage.

- They could show people who fancy themselves as sovereign who’s really sovereign.

- They could reinvent the medical landscape to fit a No-Rights agenda and make it sound virtuous or, at least, inescapable.

- They could use pandemic panic to accelerate the WEF’s Agenda 2030.

- They could sucker otherwise learned, intelligent people to walk in lockstep to lunacy and openly detest those who didn’t.

- They could exploit the political divide to their advantage.

- They could monetize hospitals into killing patients by incentivizing covid diagnosis, denying proper care then blaming undesirable outcomes on covid.

- They could make everyone believe there is actually such a thing as a non-essential worker. Newsflash: All workers are necessary, valuable, and essential.

- They could make contact tracing, passports, and vaccine compliance cards sound perfectly reasonable in supposedly “free” countries.

- They could lord over the medical and scientific community over an unsequenced, unconfirmed, unproven-to-exist virus.

- They could confuse and destabilize critics with a barrage of hypocrisy and lies that they had the audacity to claim…moved at the speed of science.

- They could fool most into believing masking and distancing worked so well it eradicated influenza.

- They could reshape the entire economic landscape by printing $3 trillion dollars in a single year and blame the inevitable repercussions on covid.

- They could shutter thousands of small businesses.

- They incentivized a new class of criminal activity with their Pandemic Protection Act. Unmonitored free money. What could possibly go wrong?

- They could eliminate large swaths of Medicare recipients by placing sick patients into nursing homes and barring loved ones from entrance.

- They could scare people entering medical and dental offices by zapping foreheads with infrared thermometers, masking and rinsing mouths out with peroxide.

- They could get people to wait in line outside stores and obey stickers on the floor.

- They could use a fake emergency to do anything they want, anytime they want, to anyone they want. Authorities hopped in a boat to arrest a lone paddle boarder. Fined people for watching the sunset alone in their car. Banned church assembly, etc.

- They could get people so frightened and confused they did crazy things like hoarding toilet paper.

- They could disrupt supply chains that led to empty shelves that contributed to sky high food prices among other economic hardships.

- They could make it so they didn’t have to follow their own draconian protocols at all but you’d lose your job, education, or military service if you didn’t.

- They could cull the herd via stress associated alcoholism, drug abuse, and suicide.

- They could make people believe their deadly, killer virus could be rendered harmless by plexiglas, restaurant tables or, protesting (for the “right” cause).

- They could make elbow bumping great again.

- And, the greatest evidence that their brainwashing was 99% effective…..

…..Music masks. Masks with a hole through which one was allowed to blow into a musical instrument.

Seriously. In any other circumstance you couldn’t make this level of stupidity up and expect anyone to believe it.

Bravo to the gaslighters. Well played.

Good one, Mark. I recently saw friends whom I haven't seen for years (pre-scamdemic). Turns out they had been fighting it, too! I wept with relief and sadness, as wish I had known. In retrospect, i should have known and reached out. At any rate, it was like reaching an oasis after years without water. It rammed home to me how incredibly alone I have been.

Here here and well said! Took me a longtime to find my people. This small town I live in is full of older people so naturally they were/are Covid fearful. I might as well have sworn a scarlet letter cause the unvaxxed were unwelcome everywhere. I ignored them mainly but I will never forget how I was treated. I have the last laugh as they say but it isn’t very satisfying as I watch so many die from turbo cancer, strokes, etc. I kept thinking these past few years that people would come to their senses and rise up once they knew. It slowly dawned on me that they will never rise up. People don’t like to be wrong. Even those vaxxed who see the light still won’t talk about it. I’m way past flabbergasted!

I was yelled at SO many times for just saying "we will all be fine", or met with wide-eyes and avoidance when family "found out" my daughter and I weren't fully vaxxed and unmasked at a b'day party for my 95 year old mom (never ended up killing g'ma, but I sure suspect the shots and boosters exacerbated her quick demise into dementia soon after that date)- never a discussion. Yelled at, avoided, etc. but never willing to "talk". Today I am the one who will not engage with these friends and family members. Not until I get an apology....which will never happen...so,....

Great stuff, Mark! i remember writing to my city health department back in 2021 asking why the death ratio went UP after the jab rollout whereas before that, the ratio had decreased to its lowest…the answer was predictably ridiculous: “because not enough people are getting the jab.”. That pretty much ended my hope for reasoned discussion.

I work for a gigantic global company that profited ridiculously from “the crisis.” It is run by idiots who habitually make stupid decisions. The kind of people who get promoted there are the same kind of people who went along with all the Covid insanity and maybe even enjoyed it: the go-along types. I had dinner after a work event with a few people on my team who are all destined for greater things. They are all vaccinated. One of them has a friend in his 40s diagnosed with AML and who is trying to tie it to the Camp Lejeune lawsuit even though the timeframe is outside their lawsuit window. Hmmm wonder what else it could beeee? I mentioned I am not vaccinated and the mood changed at the table. Instead of judgment, to which I have grown accustomed, I sensed fear, shame, and regret. One person seemed desperate to explain why she got the vaccine: to travel. My how the turn tables. It used to be the vaccinated who had to explain themselves. Now I do not even care to and maybe don’t even need to explain my decision. I am confident I made the right decision, and now it scares people who see me as smart and levelheaded in other matters. I think some of the go-along normies are realizing on some level they made a mistake.

I’ve asked several Covidians many of those 20 questions the last couple years. I would usually get the same look with the same runaround word salad so I stopped.

It’s quite exhausting having a rational conversation with someone who is (still) completely on the Covid train.

This ‘expert’ thing always puzzled me. How does one become an ‘expert?’

Is there a tangible threshold you must pass through to become one? Is there a ceremony? A certificate? Who decides when a person achieves such an honor? When the change from he’s ‘sharp as a tack’ to ‘expert?’ Is the person designating the new expert an expert as well? Or is it self appointed? Is there an annual fee? Do these ‘experts’ carry a membership card with said title? One thing I do know-if you see the sentence “Experts say, or agree….

…ask a hell of a lot of questions.

“While the Covid elephant loomed in the room, I lost interest in small talk.”

Yeah. Me too Mark. This is why I’ve chosen to abandon some old friends. I can no longer bear listening to someone agonize over what to wear to their son’s wedding.

I can no longer self censor for fear of upsetting someone. Yeah - many have just ghosted me too.

But I am in awe of how many new friends the Lord has placed in my life to replace the old who refuse to discuss the most important issue of our time (a mass extermination and the success of the divide and conquer plan).

That horrifying subject is not something we talk about all the time, but just knowing we can is what makes these new relationships meaningful and fulfilling. I thank God every day for them.

The intentions were never honorable, and they will never have the trust of the public again.

People's lives are generally simple; they commute to work, do what they do, return home, and eat dinner. Everyone they know has a Simple Life. When every single person they know, as well as the government authorities, believe in something, they will too.

The majority of people are defined by average intelligence. They support the community and want to do their part. Thinking deeper is not necessary - being right is less important than being supportive.

The wisdom of "ten heads are better than one" has always worked very well.

What the majority fails to realize is we're now living in Complexity where a single smart head is far better than 10,000 average heads. Given the odds, it's surprising anyone would go against the crowd. That requires: 1) thinking for oneself and having confidence in one's thinking, 2) asking discerning questions, and 3) doing your own research.

That's half of it. The other half is that those 10,000 heads are not independent thinkers - they've all been programmed with consistent messaging by the same media. We are surrounded by xenobots, a new form of semi-conscious life.

I recently lost a friend, but renewed an old friendship with another.

When we lived in Seattle, I'd made friends with a younger guy (20 yrs younger than myself) I met while helping a 3rd friend setup every Sunday morning for Catholic CCD. He turned out to be quite close - regularly at our Seattle apartment, split more than a few bottles of good whisky with him and my wife. Last October I even flew out there to celebrate his 40th bday.

It was always an easy friendship, centered on our shared Catholicism and our mutual love of the beauty of the natural world.

We moved back home to flyover country in May 2020, but have kept in touch regularly through FaceTime and phone calls. My wife and I even drove to Dallas once to meet him when he was visiting his parents.

But about 7 or 8 months ago, I texted him to check in and after several hours received a response that he'd been to dinner with another friend, but would get back to me. ("Perfect", I responded.) That call or text never occurred.

At first I thought, oh he just got busy and forgot. But as the days turned into weeks, then months, I began to see that it was intentional - he didn't just forget, the ghosting was intentional and he didn't want to remain friends anymore - even long distance friends.

Last Monday was his 41st birthday. I'd thought about sending a present, as we'd always done; he was a great gift-giver, but I'm more of a send-something-from-Amazon-giver, but then I realized it wasn't welcome and hey - I'm not going to force friendship on someone who clearly doesn't want to be my friend anymore.

As to the why?, I think the split was due to religious differences within Catholicism. I've been a Traditional Latin Mass guy for years, but he (and we) attended a conservative Novus Ordo Dominican parish in Seattle. I was careful never to make too big an issue about this divide and he even attended the TLM with me a few times when we lived there.

But whatever.

On the plus side, a couple of weeks ago my youngest son needed me to move his belongings and vehicle back to Oklahoma while he attends a USMC Embassy Guard school at Quantico. While we were there, I re-upped an old friendship with a guy who lives in DC but hadn't seen my son since he was a younger teen. It was great to stay with my old friend and introduce him to the adult-version of the kid he'd known years ago.

I guess the moral of the story is that friendships age and die just like people. Some people enter our lives, then are gone again a few years later almost like a natural lifecycle. As a soon to be 61 year old man, I am finding that loneliness is bigger issue than I imagined it would be.

I thank God for a good wife, and my good dogs.

The power of remaining in the herd is great. As you write, people fear social ostracism more than anything else. Once the narrative is set in stone, it's almost impossible to change it. It would take one hell of a "truth bomb." .... And the requisite truth bombs are outlawed. It's like "they" have thought of everything.

You'd have to leave the safety of the herd you've been a part of your whole life ... and then go to another herd.

As you well know, even if you were given ample opportunity to discuss, in good faith, the Covid issues in their entirety, you would have experienced the following (which I’m sure you did with those who did engage) An immediate and widespread dismissal of any information from sources deemed contrary to the medical establishment, mainstream media, political pundits, etc. It’s not only about the unwillingness to discuss an issue, but the unyielding and unquestionable trust in these institutions and to authority figures, like Fauci. One of my major takeaways through the Covid era is that quite literally, Facts Don’t Matter.

I had a friend who would not even listen to the reasons I had while trying to explain my hesitancy to the initial shot roll out. I had another friend who refused to leave the house unless absolutely necessary and if she had to go to the doctors, she would wear a N-95 and a face shield.

Both of those people are out of my life.

So much fear. So much paranoia.

Even better point: there never was any pandemic, even the Spanish flu was bs.

"The Science" is just another religion that they fell for.

That's why we still practice vaccinology despite no proof that they improve health. (See vax-unvax book on chd). Add to that dangerous drugs like statins and SSRIs and you see how everything is on dogma.

Two quotes that help explain why the truth gets ignored.

"And then there is the psychological effect of the Big Lie which is axiomatic in gaslighting. The paradox here is that the bigger the lie, the harder it is for the mind to bridge the gulf between perceived reality and the lie that authority figures are painting as truth. I believe that the prospect of being deceived evinces a primitive emotional response on a par with staring death in the face. We are hard-wired to fear deception because we have evolved to interpret it as an existential threat. That’s why deception can elicit the same emotional response as the miscalculation of a serious physical threat. Lies told to us don’t always bear the same cost as a misjudged red light, but the primitive part of the brain can’t make this distinction and we rely on cerebral mediation for a more appropriate but delayed response. And in the long run, the lie is often just as dangerous as the physical threat. Many government whoppers – ‘safe and effective’ – do cost lives.

To avoid the death-like experience of being deceived, a mental defence is erected to deny that the lie is happening."

(From https://leftlockdownsceptics.com/alleged-cia-involvement-in-jfk-assassination-goes-mainstream-so-now-what/ )

------

"The evolutionary psychologist William von Hippel found that humans use large parts of thinking power to navigate social world rather than perform independent analysis and decision making. For most people it is the mechanism that, in case of doubt, will prevent one from thinking what is right if, in return, it endangers one’s social status. This phenomenon occurs more strongly the higher a person’s social status. Another factor is that the more educated and more theoretically intelligent a person is, the more their brain is adept at selling them the biggest nonsense as a reasonable idea, as long as it elevates their social status. The upper educated class tends to be more inclined than ordinary people to chase some intellectual boondoggle. "

Great one, Mark.

The one thing that still puzzles me is why the people who supported the damaging policies because the virus was such a risk to their survival didn't question the idea of sticking a chemical in their arm that had not been fully tested and for which there was no list of ingredients.

They complied (with lockdowns and mask mandates) BECAUSE of their survival instinct and then they complied (with taking the vaccine) DESPITE their survival instinct. Very strange.

Speaking of instincts, my instinct is to steer clear of people like this who are obviously not mentally right.
