Egalitarianism vs. Socialism (vs. Capitalism)

This is a brief examination of the essence of the concepts of egalitarianism and socialism. While capitalism is mentioned, I think most people are all too aware of what capitalism is and how it is playing out in our world. I am very confident that, in the world today, there are many people who claim to want a socialist society when, in reality, the concept they have in their mind is of a more egalitarian society. In 20/20 hindsight, I know I have made that semantic error. Words are powerful. Using the correct term to accurately express the concept we have in our mind is important. I think we often fall into the error of the misuse of a term, especially when that misuse is common around us.

According to Merriam-Webster, “egalitarian” is defined as:

“: asserting, promoting, or marked by egalitarianism“.

Egalitarianism is defined as:

1: a belief in human equality especially with respect to social, political, and economic affairs

2: a social philosophy advocating the removal of inequalities among people”

I think, when a lot of people use the word “socialism”, the above qualities are actually what they have in their mind. One other notable aspect which I think often accompanies the use of the word “socialism”, is that when thinking of increased equality, it is common for a person to be thinking only in terms of the rewards, the benefits, available within a society. True equality also means sharing in the work involved in developing and maintaining a society. There is much needed, in many different areas, to maintain a healthy society. Everything from picking up the trash on the side of the road, to brain surgery. It all matters. There cannot be viable equality in a society in which some only receive, or in which some only give. The imbalance will cause the society to topple. It’s such a simple principle, yet one that is so often overlooked: imbalance engenders instability which can, and will, result in a toppling.

All that being said, Merriam-Webster’s definition of socialism is as follows:

1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

2a: a system of society or group living in which there is no private property

b: a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

3: a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done”

I do not believe that this is what most people today who are using the term “socialist” or “socialistic” have in mind. I have a great deal of confidence that most people in the United States who use this term do not have “no private property” in mind. I know I don’t. I want to be able to leave my home in the morning and return to find it is still my home. The same with my car, tools, and essential personal property. On the other hand, sometimes working and contributing together to see that essential goods and services are available to all is a very good thing. Such a method is used widely to provide schools, police, fire fighter, and emergency response services. There are more essential goods and services which using a similar societal/cooperative approach in the provision of, could stand to benefit humanity greatly. That is another topic, not for this article.

It seems to me that the common use of the term “socialism” in the United States is a reaction to the extreme economic imbalance which is only increasing under the current capitalistic economic system. In every city, I venture every town, in the United States today we see people being marginalized. People are experiencing their needs going unmet, often not for a lack of actively contributing to the wellbeing of their community. We are seeing the end result of allowing the predatory reality, which is a purely capitalist system, to determine our economic reality. However, in contrast to egalitarianism, socialism opens the door just as wide as capitalism does to an extreme imbalance in economic reality and political power. I recommend those using the term “socialism”, as an alternative to “capitalism”, more closely examine it’s definition. Then examine the definition of “egalitarian”. Words matter. What term more accurately describes the reality you want to see emerge in the world?

Additional:

I just looked up “socialism” in a copy of Webster’s New World Dictionary, Third College Edition, 1991. It does not have the same definition as what I have above which came from the online version of Merriam-Webster. Most significantly, it does not include the idea of no private ownership. It does include the phrase “…in which the private ownership of the means of production and distribution has been eliminated.” I cannot help but wonder if the more extreme version has something to do with weaponizing the word? We live in a world in which we are seeing our language altered, definitions changed, sometimes clearly to benefit one group or another. We need to have greater reverence for our language, which is a significant part of our cultural, intellectual, environment.

It is time to remember our humanity.

Over the past 6+ decades “our” Federal Government has lied to us about the JFK and RFK assassinations. Also, the Vietnam war, the Oklahoma City Bombing, the first WTC bombing, MK Ultra, UFO’s, 9/11, WMD’s in Iraq, and more. Why are so many people so willing to blindly accept that we are getting the truth about COVID and the “vaccines”?To the best of my knowledge, there has never been a time, nor a set of issues, when so many qualified, independent, professionals have felt compelled to speak out against what the Government and media are presenting to us. Professionals from various medical, biological, other scientific and legal disciplines. They are putting their professional credibility, their livelihoods, on the line to speak out.

What is the reason for the “tunnel vision” that has gripped so many educated, caring people? The “masses” have blindly followed the directives to destroy livelihoods, to impose isolation, to deprive youth of educational opportunities, to witness dramatic increases in poverty, depression and suicides. To be complicit in coercing neighbors to be injected with a known hazardous substance which those people did not want inside their bodies. All this based in fear of a disease, which, if left totally untreated, has a 99.9% + survival rate. If the WHO had not unilaterally redefined the term “pandemic”, from it’s traditional meaning, during the time of the Swine Flu, what is going on would not be a “pandemic”.

It is time to remember our humanity, our individuality. It’s time to stop trying to force our own health care decisions upon everyone. The value and necessity of individualized care has been a standard within the medical field for some time. Right now, are people which the data shows to be highly susceptible to adverse reactions to the vaccines being truly given the benefit of informed consent? Again, to the best of my knowledge, there has never been a time when those at the top of the pyramid of the medical, political and media establishment in the United States have so diligently kept accurate information about a disease, and about treatments, away from the general public. And there has never been a time when the American public has been so amenable to such censorship.

It’s Time to End Partisan Politics

Nothing kills the ability of individuals to run for office and make a difference like partisan politics. Once a country has accepted the presence of political parties, and those parties become so powerful it is all but impossible for an average citizen to successfully run for a national office without their support, they, the parties, own the system. And therefore, those who run the parties run the system. Those controlling the parties become the political “bosses”.

Within this type of political structure it doesn’t matter who runs for office, because, whoever is elected is only going to be the new mouthpiece for the bosses. Yet, the bosses know it helps obfuscate their presence by running candidates who at least have the appearance of being distinct political personalities.

It’s time we end political parties. Let individuals run for office. Return to a system wherein the media must give equal time to all candidates. That will also limit the number of repetitive political ads we’re subjected to. I’m sure the media will be happy to simply run one or two informative programs or articles on who the candidates are and what their positions on the issues are. In such a system we have an infinitely better chance of a candidate actually following through with their stated positions if they’re elected.

The world is in turmoil. What can we do?

Much of what’s taking place in the world today has been made possible by amazing communication technologies. While these technologies bring much of positive value to the world, as with so many other developments, they also offer those with dishonorable motives new avenues through which to prey upon communities. The latter application of these technologies has reached such proportion, If I wasn’t seeing it happen, I’m not sure I would have believed it to be possible. I grieve that it is.

I was born in 1950. I remember the U.S. Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy. I remember what I saw as a child of life in those times. I remember the post WWII mind set which was predominant in those days in the midwestern United States. There was an undercurrent of optimism, positivity. Diseases were being conquered, diplomacy, rather than war, occupied the headlines. People felt good that tyranny, authoritarianism, genocide, had been defeated. As is all too clear now, the world wasn’t as free of some of these human problems as many believed.

It’s not that everything was ideal, not at all. There were (and sadly still are) issues of ignorance, misunderstanding, fear, hatred, between people of differing races and religions. There were the major rifts between the nations identifying with capitalism and those identifying with communism. However, during WWII, people from many nations, nations with histories of distrust, antagonism, had pulled together to defeat a common enemy. There was optimism that the common values which had surfaced during the war could be built upon to establish lasting peaceful relationships. It was a time of the belief in unlimited possibilities for a better world.

What is absolutely apparent now, is that those who perceived the possibilities for improving the conditions of life for all people, weren’t the only ones seeing unlimited possibilities. There were those who saw the potential of using the new technologies, the developments in transportation, communication, psychology, medicine, and other disciplines, as tools for plunder. Rather than embracing the opportunities to engage in massive development, to facilitate improvements for the common good, they saw, and continue to see, human deficits through the lens of exploitation. Not as areas of need to be addressed with pervasive development and education, but as openings to be exploited in order to establish themselves in predatory positions of power within the systems of the world.

It is apparent now, that post WWII, those seeking personal wealth and power have been working, manipulating public perception. Often co-opting the very symbols which had represented the defeat of tyranny, authoritarianism and inhuman behaviors. They employ words and symbols which once stirred the most positive motives within people to obfuscate and shield their predatory agendas. One of the first major coups these people won was, via magazines, television, and other media, establishing the idea of unrestrained pursuit of personal wealth as a positive primary value in the psyche of people around the world. Once that lie, a lie which ignores basic values necessary to maintaining both healthy individuals and healthy cultures, was pervasively established in the minds of the population, the door to pandemonium was opened.

Competitive economics establishes a system in which those at the top have the distinct advantage. The oppressive, sometimes murderous, methods used to maintain and expand the wealth of those at the top become just the methods of “business as usual”. After all, it’s what you would do if you had all that money? Isn’t it? It’s the value system the media repeatedly portrays as the way of the world. And many, especially those who have never been exposed to something different, simply assume that impression to be the global, inescapable reality.

Abraham Maslow provided us with a working framework, a skeleton, within which it is possible to “flesh out” not only healthy, thriving individuals, also healthy, thriving cultures.

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

How do we know what is needed to “flesh out”, to establish a viable, worldwide, thriving human culture? We have the findings of the work done in many scientific disciplines over many centuries to guide us. Psychology, sociology, medicine, agriculture, engineering, all of these disciplines, and more, hold information which provides the necessary answers. There are the developments in science and the arts which provide much instruction for the establishment and maintenance of a healthful, thriving human culture. There are answer available to us to the problems of housing, health, energy, pollution, and more. Sometimes these answers go unused because they interfere with the profit motive of those in positions of power. And we accept it because the culture of competitive economics has become normalized.

The thing is, we have got the tools we need to establish a world in which people of many different backgrounds can live together as vital aspects of our world ecology, interacting and enhancing each other’s experience of life. What is missing is the focus to make it happen. I would have said the “will” to make it happen, but I believe that will is present, inside every living human being. Sometimes it is dormant, sometimes it has been covered in so much pain and trauma, so many lies and misdirections, that it expresses itself in twisted, destructive ways. But it is there.

As a teacher of mine once said: “Life takes work, it’s death that’s easy. Just do nothing and you will die.”

All people emanate from and are inextricably a part of the Divine Creative Spirit. This aspect of our existence is represented by the golden circle in the center in the diagram above. The next area, the circle which surrounds the center circle, is the “Worldly Persona” which is the identity the rest of world knows us by. It is defined by our words and deeds which are observable to the rest of the people in the world. It is this persona that is the product of the process described below. Our persona reflects the sum total of our worldly experiences, desires and decisions.

There are no “bad people”, there are no “good people”, there are only people. What makes the difference between tyrants such as Adolf Hitler, Mary I of England, or Pol Pot and revered personalies such as Gautama Buddha, St. Teresa of Calcutta, or Martin Luther King Jr.? It is not some mysterious, unknown variables. The difference lies in the sum total of their individual experiences (education, indoctrination, relationships, interactions), their desires, and their decisions. It is important to note here that the “sum total” may include the experiences, desires and decisions of many lifetimes. Also that biology and/or injuries can play a major role in the development of an individual’s persona.

However, we are thinking beings with free will. We have the potential to change. We can mold not only ourselves, but the world we live in. If we decide we desire a better, more harmonious, world, and we act upon that desire, we can bring that vision to reality. It may take time, but the sooner we start, the sooner we arrive.

With the determination to do so, bitterness can be transmuted to understanding. Fear and hatred can be transmuted to caring and love. However, we must stay aware that the opposite is also true. Caring and love, with enough abuse and trauma, especially when accompanied by input and reinforcement to do so, can be replaced with hatred and cruelty. We must end the mistreatment, the cruelties we impose upon one another. We must see each other as being the children of the same Creator, which we are. As we now know, we are all inextricably interconnected. Isn’t it time we established the positive, harmonious, joyful, reality we all, at the core of our being, long for?

In summation, while we all can, at times, be negatively affected by the world around us, through enlightenment, education, understanding, we can transmute negative impulses into constructive actions. We can play a more positively determinate role within our own lives, within our relationships, and within the world around us.

At this time, around the world, we are being advised by individuals and agencies, which wield substantial worldly power, to be fearful. We are being urged, coerced, to be compliant, to follow the instructions we’re being given. Instructions which appeal to the fear the media and corporate powers are largely responsible for instilling. In their positions of power within the media, the corporate powers are wielding an incredible ability of censorship over information. They routinely do not publish truths which disagree with, which dispute the predatory agendas they are implementing. A predominant one at this time is the COVID/”vaccine” agenda. Any information which contradicts the fear based agenda they are pushing, is either censored in corporate media, or, if it is referred to, it is done so in such a way as to discredit that information.

A collection of various and sometimes overlapping people have introduced a previously unknown disease into the world apparently in the pursuit of a homicidal, special interest, agenda. And they may introduce more. They are offering toxic, death-dealing treatments and doing all they can to repress the knowledge of the existence of safe, effective treatments. And throughout it all, they are engineering the flow of vast amounts of the world’s wealth into their hands. Yet we can make the decision to comply with this heinous agenda, or not. We have the final decision in whether or not to allow the pollution of our minds and spirits with the fear and hate they are promoting. And, we have the final decision whether or not to allow the pollution of our bodies with the toxic substances they are pushing.

Changing the focus back to our inherent divine origin and heritage, even when we are being motivated by fear, anger, hatred, even then, through the filters of our mind which are active at that time, we are expressing the innate desire for life which is present within all of us. However, if we desire a more harmonious, healthful, joyful life, we need to discipline ourselves to refrain from expressions which lead to more harm, more trauma, more fear, anger and hatred in the world. While we cannot ignore such emotions when they are present, we must learn to see through to the primary, underlying reality of the desire for life which is there. We must learn to see it not only within ourselves, but in “the other”. When we can do that, and when we embrace the values of negotiation, understanding, mutuality, and the desire for resolutions which enhance the harmony of human interactions, we can have a genuine heaven on Earth.

All through my life I have heard skeptics, cynics, say that such a thing is “too idealistic”, not practical, not possible. Even they, in doing so, inadvertently acknowledge the ideal nature of such thinking. If we aren’t devoting our time and energies toward seeking and establishing the ideal, what are we spending them on? Seeking and establishing the mediocre? The dysfunctional? Or are we just letting entropy, the slow slide into dissolution, be our guiding motive?

Ultimately, whether in the United States or someplace else in the world at large, the term coined in the U.S. by the authors of the Declaration of Independence, “We the People“, represents a reality which can stop tyrannical abuses and elevate humanity. It is within our individual decisions, that we collectively possess the ability to determine the direction this period of history will follow.

The Death-Dealing Epidemic of Complacency Within the American Medical System

Let’s say a group of people are walking in the wild and they all fall into a nest of poisonous snakes, they all are bitten and they all begin to show symptoms of the effects of the poison.  Some of the group, out of desperation, begin eating a plant which they know to have medicinal properties but are unsure if it will work against the snake venom.  Miraculously it does!  Within a short time, almost all who have eaten of the medicinal plant have fully recovered.  However, another group, who call themselves scientists, state that they need time to conduct a double-blind study before they risk eating the plant.  Several of them die.

It sounds ridiculous, right?  That couldn’t happen in real life, could it?  The group who call themselves scientists would see with their own eyes the miraculous recovery of the group who had eaten the plant, they would recognize the empirical legitimacy of what they’ve seen, and they would eat the plant and save themselves.  Yes that, in all probability is what would happen if this imaginary example were to play out in the real world.  Well, on a much larger scale, this example is playing out in the real world.  Incredibly, the group who, in the example are the group who call themselves scientists, are not eating plant.  Instead, as in the example, they claim they want to first conduct their double-blind studies. 

There are some important distinctions in what’s happening in the real world as opposed to the example I’ve given above:. 

  1. The people who are dying aren’t limited, as in the example, to the group who call themselves scientists.  They are the thousands of common people in the United States and it other countries who are dying from COVID and are being denied the benefits of Ivermectin. People whose physicians are following the directives of persons in positions of power within the public health community. Persons in positions of power who are speaking against, or forbidding, the widespread use of Ivermectin to treat COVID. But who, in the meantime, can claim to be objective by conducting, or authorizing, studies on Ivermectin’s efficacy and safety fighting COVID. Studies which, if used as a reason to withhold Ivermectin, are both ridiculous and serving a profit oriented agenda.
  2. However, the supreme ludicrousness of it all is that however many people the NIH, or CDC, or the WHO, or whomever, might have in their experimental groups, that number will not even begin to approach the millions in India who are already the living proofs of the hypothesis that Ivermectin will effectively and safely, treat COVID. They have taken Ivermectin and dramatically benefited from doing so.  There are no large numbers of adverse reactions. In other words, the experiment has already been conducted, in real life, and the results are in.  In the meantime the pharmaceutical profiteers want to coerce millions more into taking their questionable, sometimes fatal, sometimes crippling, treatment. In fact, the experiments being conducted, or authorized as mentioned in item 1. above, seem more a delaying tactic to further facilitate the ongoing push of the mRNA injections.

If those fighting against Ivermectin were not making any money, but doing so just from an overabundance of caution, that could be seen as an idiosyncratic, but innocent, characteristic of that group.  It would still be resulting in many unnecessary deaths, but it would be less criminal.  However, the reality is that powerful people are making money from the ban on Ivermectin.  And not just a little money, but raking in millions upon millions of dollars. Meanwhile, people are dying.  People who, the vast majority of, the courageous real world, Indian experiment with Ivermectin indicates, would be saved if only they would be allowed that medicine.

It’s time all American medical practitioners are called upon to rouse from their complacency. Stop blindly following the wishes, the orders, from the profiteers who are endeavoring to disallow Ivermectin as a treatment for COVID!   Follow the Hippocratic oath which states “I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures [that] are required…”.  Step forward, access the knowledge gained by your colleagues in India.  Apply it here and now.  Do what the people of America hope and count upon:  save lives, engage in effectively treating the American public. 

It’s time we stopped the brutality of the mandates and the widespread suffering they perpetuate.

For over a year we have seen small businesses closed, people isolated, depression on the rise, suicides on the rise, homicides on the rise.  We have seen billions funneled toward Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson and Johnson, and Astra Zeneca.  We have seen the “big box” stores;  Walmart, Costco and others, including the online store Amazon, reaping billions from the shut down of competition.  Now thousands, if not millions, are losing, or will lose, their jobs due to the draconian mandates by President Biden and many State Governors.  There are millions experiencing death and crippling reactions from the so-called “vaccines”.  The most authoritative report on the subject, the “Lazarus Report”, more formally entitled “Electronic Support for Public Health-Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (ESP:VAERS)” in their study of the adverse event reporting system, data collected from 6/2006 to 10/2009, they found that only 1% of vaccine adverse reactions are reported.  The current VAERS report of deaths from the COVID vaccines is 16,766.  Using the aforementioned Report’s findings, that predicts deaths from COVID vaccines are more in the area of 16 million.  This is not even counting crippling neurological reactions and other adverse reactions. 

There has never been such an egregious case of the “cure” being worse than the disease.  Yet, driven by the media’s fear mongering, millions of Americans, blinded by that fear, continue to support harsher and more pervasive mandates. All being done under the misguided, if not criminal, pretense of protecting the public.  All in response to a virus which has negatively affected far fewer lives than has the brutality of the official responses; shutdowns, mandates.  We are seeing first-hand how fear can drive people to abandon both rationality and civility.

In the midst of all this we should not lose sight of the fact that an elite few are reaping windfall profits from the ongoing events.  And that those few occupy positions of extraordinary influence within the halls of government and industry, including all forms of media. 

Now the profiteers are looking to expand the sales (and it is sales, we do pay for the injections people are receiving “for free”, via our tax dollars) to inject children over the age of 5.  Considering the extremely high probability that most of the damage being done by these “vaccines” is going unreported, being almost entirely ignored by media, this is a move which is heinous in it’s disregard, if not it’s contempt, for the lives of the children being targeted. 

The good news is that we can beat this. The bad news is rather than beating it, we’re committing cultural suicide.

The media’s use of descriptors such as “surge”, “breakout”, “runs rampant”, would lead a person to believe that people are succumbing to COVID in incredibly large numbers.   

Take a breath. 

Here are some figures from the mainstream sources who claim to be tracking COVID.  Let’s start with getting some perspective, the population of the U.S. is officially, as of today, August 31, 2021, is 328,240,000.  That is three hundred twenty-eight million, two hundred and forty thousand people.  That is us, the residents of the United States of America.  Among us, cumulatively from the beginning of COVID hitting our shores, 39,343,501 of us are confirmed as having, at some point, contracted COVID.  That is 0.1198% of us as a whole.  In reality, a very small percentage of us.  Further, this isn’t the number of people who got so sick that hospitalization was needed, this is just confirmed cases.  Of this small percentage of us who did contract a confirmed case of COVID, just slightly more than one/tenth of one percent, 1.647%, or 648,051 of us, officially died of COVID.  That means that out of the entire population of us, 0.00197% of us have died of COVID. Or less than two one-thousandths of a percent.  When it comes to the media’s sensationalism of COVID, we are being sold a tempest in a teapot. 

Are around six hundred and fifty thousand deaths from COVID a good thing?  No.  But is it a catastrophe that warrants closing small businesses, does it warrant millions of people losing jobs, incomes, housing, educational opportunities?  Does it warrant the rise in depression, addiction and suicides which are taking place in the nation?  Does it warrant the loss of individual rights which is taking place throughout the U.S.?  I don’t think there’s any question that countless more lives have been hit with tragedy due to the mandates which President Biden, Anthony Fauci and numerous Governors have waged than have been tragically affected by COVID. 

Time to get some perspective and restore the freedoms, of livelihood, of education, even of the ability to choose the medications we, as individuals, would like to use if we face infection.  Right now the U.S. has the highest mortality rate, small as it is, from COVID from than most, if not all, other countries in the world.  Many other countries, India for one, have benefited greatly from the use of Ivermectin, others are reporting positive results with Hydroxychloroquine.  In the U.S. it seems these effective medications are being withheld. Recently I calculated the mortality rate within ten countries using the official figures. I see very little difference in the rate whether a country has vaccinated a lot, or a little, of their population. As mentioned above, the U.S. has the worst rate of those I checked. I invite you to check a few more. Post your results in the comments to this post.

So here we are, the good news is we’re facing a very beatable challenge.  The bad news is we’re being misled into believing it’s much more virulent than it is and that it is an all but unbeatable challenge. The draconian measures being put forward by those in positions of political power like being (figuratively) asked to cut off our limbs as a precaution, and we’re doing it.  This is much more related to the power of the press than the reality of COVID.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day. An event whose meaning is coming way too close to simply being the glorification of war and of those who agree to kill in the service of those giving the orders to do so. Often blindly, with little or no idea of the reality around the manipulations, the crimes, which may have been committed by those giving the orders in their efforts to justify their war in the minds of the citizenry.
Is it honorable to fight, to be willing to die, to protect one’s home and loved ones? Beyond a shadow of doubt. Most who agree to take up arms upon the orders from those giving them likely believe that is what they’re doing. Yet, what if people with the most honorable intentions are following the orders of commanders with less than honorable intentions? Commanders acting in the service of profiteers who are seeking to obtain foreign resources or to destroy foreign competition in the marketplace?


In the final analysis what determines the true nature of the killing: the honorable intentions of those doing the killing or the less than honorable intentions of those ordering the killing to be done, the intentions/motives to be found at the foundation of the conflict? At what point do we demand to know all the information around any event or situation before we pick up arms? At what point do we teach our young people to utilize the utmost in critical thinking, to be absolutely certain it really is necessary for the protection of home and loved ones before taking the life of another human being? When do we begin teaching our children that killing another human being simply because of “orders”, because someone else told you to, is a betrayal of one’s most intimate, authentic self? We, as a culture, are failing in teaching our children to be intelligent, autonomous persons rather than merely the tools of those who have managed to gain the reins of political and economic power.


At what point do we realize that corporate profiteering via military adventures and the attempt to “Americanize” the world at gunpoint is not going to lead to any desirable future? When do we, as a nation, realize that fairness, respect, friendship, will go a lot further than threats in creating a world we will genuinely want to live in. We would be acting more in genuine service to ourselves, our children and our future by maintaining a strong national defense while simultaneously engaging in sincere actions of friendship and cooperation with others. Stop the misguided, murderous, military adventures taking place in service of corporate profiteering.


At what point will we realize that simply “following orders” and the invoking of the cliché of “national security” should never be enough to persuade us to take the lives of men, women and children in foreign lands?

The Noble Failure

The Noble Failure is a character in American politics which has been showing up with increasing frequency. The Noble Failure knows what people want. When campaigning for office, the Noble Failure speaks to the needs and wants of the people, and does so convincingly. The Noble Failure will emote, inspire, speak of noble aspirations and a better, fairer, more equitable world. People will be led to believe if only they can get the Noble Failure elected, things will improve. The thing is, that is all just part of the show, the main attraction. It is intended to draw voters, and the reality of Presidential elections last few decades show it works. Why wouldn’t it? People aren’t going to vote for what they don’t want to hear.

However, the promises are never, not from day one, meant to actually be fulfilled once the Noble Failure is elected. Once in office the excuses are pulled out of the closet. “The Legislature won’t get on board.” “The projects can’t be funded.” “We need to first increase the military budget.” “It’s not a good idea to increase the national debt.” “We need to infuse cash into our big corporations to compete internationally.” “It’s the damn ________________ (Democrats/Republicans, liberals/conservatives).” “We need focus our energies on attacking _______________ (fill in the blank).” Or, maybe, the new standard: “It would be a socialist program.”

So, the Noble Failure puts forward the face of grief, of sorrow, maybe even of having been betrayed. They bemoan the inability of others in power to appreciate the vision they sold to the American public. They may villainize those identified as obstacles to their stated campaign goals. This is the 21st century American Presidential/political reality. It didn’t begin in the 21st century, but it’s the only one we’ve had since the turn of the century. It’s the contemporary script: align your stated goals with what the people want and need. Make a few gestures toward fulfillment, then blame someone else for the failure to produce. Repeat in the next election cycle. The only people who don’t get excuses after the election are the 1/10th of 1%’ers who always come out ahead. Sometimes more than others, but the national wealth, the wealth resulting from the work of millions of people, just keeps flowing into their bank accounts. Policies keep coming which support their goals.


At the end of the day, the key players attend their private clubs, extravagant parties, concerts, events, have a few drinks and pat each other on the back. Maybe arrange to give each other official accolades and medals. Or, quite possibly engage in some dark rituals or forms of entertainment. A troupe of Machiavellian actors showing up for the after show reception.


It was the script from the beginning of the campaign, as it has been for several decades. It’s one reason why control of the White House, and the Legislature, cannot be allowed to slip from the control of a small circle of people. A pervasive control that has been jealously guarded since 1963.

What does the general population get from all this? Frustration, disenfranchisement, increasing debt and poverty. One thing we can see from all this is that when the majority are not able to see the issues that are negatively affecting their lives addressed at the source, people will turn on each other. Like an animal caught in a trap. The animal can’t open the trap, so in order to escape, it chews it’s own leg off. “We the People” turn on each other, divide and be conquered. And those who occupy the seats of power and control the monopolized media are all too ready to throw some fuel onto those fires.

The difference between us and an animal caught in a steel trap is we that have minds capable of finding better solutions. We need to stop inadvertently, or as “wannabes”, cooperating with corruption, the disease, that is destroying the dream of a society that can work for all. Quit turning on each other. Quit buying into the incessant fear mongering dispensed to keep us distracted and paralyzed. Treat each other right; personally, economically, and in every way. Not just within the United States, also internationally. Create a culture that doesn’t have to kill and conquer in a misguided attempt at creating international “cooperation”. Create a culture that others want to emulate because it works and works well. A culture with the organizing principles of human wellbeing, reflecting our mutuality rather than fear and greed. Stop blindly following, believing in, the proclamations of those whose goal it is to keep us distracted, disorganized, fearful, and subservient.

Toward a Deeper Understanding of the Covid Controversies

For Tomas

For many there is no controversy. Those who fall into this group are people who are either exclusively exposed to the mainstream media narrative around Covid and the so-called “vaccines”, or those without sufficient awareness in the issues to realize the validity of the many authoritative voices of dissent. Voices from many disciplines and many countries. The majority of the population of the world most likely fall into the second group. There is no degree of personal failing whatsoever in being in this group. We live in world which has been moving toward specialized fields of knowledge and professions for decades. We generally rely upon the honesty and ethics of those who work in different fields than our own. At times, due to the degree of specialization which can exist even within a particular field of knowledge, we often do not understand all the aspects of our own chosen career fields. Yet while there is no personal failing inherent in not knowing everything, all the time (no one does), sometimes what we don’t know can hurt us.

The reality is there is a great deal of controversy among those highly skilled in the fields of medicine, microbiology, and virology around both the presentation of the Covid virus itself and particularly around the nature and safety of the purported “vaccines” being pushed. That is the right word, “pushed”, so unrelentingly around the world. It would not be inaccurate to compare the approach to marketing the Covid “vaccines” to the “shock and awe” campaign of the Iraq war. For the most part, there is no genuine effort being put forward to obtain informed consent from those being injected. Also, there is the reality that none of the pharmaceutical companies nor the governments, nor the health organizations such as the CDC or the WHO, who are so relentlessly pushing the “vaccines”, can, or will, offer any guarantees as to the effectiveness, nor the safety of these products. In point of fact, the pharmaceutical companies have diligently worked to obtain governmental immunities which prevent them from being held responsible for any harm done by the products.

Why am I so resistant to calling the pharmaceutical concoctions being pushed vaccines? Because none of them, not the Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson and Johnson, nor any other version of the mRNA concoctions are produced, nor designed, to work in the same manner as any previous vaccine. Previous vaccines have all been made by a process described in the CDC’s explanation of what a vaccine is made of, available on their website (unless they’ve taken it down since May 8, 2021). By this explanation, these concoctions are not vaccines.

I am going to endeavor to keep the rest of this article as brief and concise as possible. In doing this I am intending, and hoping, the reader will access the linked materials (in purple text). They are videos and articles by authoritative, independent, doctors and scientists whose perspectives on what is happening around Covid, and the vaccines, differ greatly from the mainstream media narrative. I am going to, of necessity (there are many such videos and articles) limit the number of these I am including links to in this article. I strongly encourage the reader to do some additional research on their own.

The first aspect of this controversy I want to address, however, is indirectly, rather than directly, related to the science around the virus and the “vaccines” themselves. You see, the trust people have in the doctors, scientists and corporations behind the information being put forward by the mainstream media, is as important a factor, if not more important, in peoples’ decision making than any information being put forward around the “science”. This is an issue my particular field of study, psychology/mental health, along with the experience I’ve had working in both mental health clinics and private practice, lends me to have some clarity in addressing.

From the time we’re small children we are taught that there are some people, who due to the office they occupy within our society, are worthy of our trust. However, by the time most people become adults we learn that sometimes, some “authorities” and/or public officials, do lie. As a matter of fact, it seems that at this point in time, the fact that some, or many, such authorities and/or officials may lie has become so commonplace that it hardly raises an eyebrow. That is not a healthy situation. It is a reality though that many people; common, honest, people, are resistant to understanding the depths of corruption which can and do exist within the halls of power. Such corruption as is currently occurring within the U.S. and within other countries. Although, it is always easier to believe the reports of heinous corruption which involve the “other”. To some people, to seriously consider the profound levels of corruption, which substantial evidence suggests currently exist, creates a condition of cognitive dissonance. Cognitive dissonance is not a joke. At the risk of seeming to enter into hyperbole, extreme cognitive dissonance is capable of rendering a person dysfunctional, and has been recognized as even potentially resulting in death.

Simply put, we do not like the feeling of cognitive dissonance, and it seems to be a knee jerk defensive reaction of many to simply offhandedly dismiss information which, it is sensed, may result in cognitive dissonance. On the other hand, some have had to cope with situations that gave them no option but to face, critically analyze, and resolve information which involved considerable cognitive dissonance. Whatever group you’re in, you got there doing the things which seemed the most logical and survival oriented at the time.

However, at this time we are, the vast majority of us, facing an unprecedented challenge in our lives. There are people/corporations who are telling us they have our best interests at heart who want us to accept an irreversible injection of an unproven substance into our bodies and the bodies of our loved ones. Yet, within even the mainstream literature, there is no shortage of examples in which these very same people/corporations have misrepresented their products and/or have marketed a product which caused significant harm to a significant number of consumers. Accompanying this reality are these additional aspects to the Covid/”vaccine” situation:

  • The people most strongly pushing the injections are the people who stand to make the most money from them.
  • The people most strongly pushing the injections can offer no guarantees of either the effectiveness nor the safety of the injection.
  • The people most strongly pushing the injections made sure they had an immunity from any liability for harm caused by the injections before they began putting them on the market. Hardly a vote of confidence in their product.
  • While the CDC and other agencies/corporations commonly associated with public health are endorsing and promoting mandates for the injections, these people and agencies have close ties with the pharmaceutical companies marketing the injections. Some highly placed individuals within these agencies, if not the agencies themselves, stand to make a lot of money from the sales of the injections.
  • The ethical practice of informed consent is rarely, if ever, used in regard to the injections.
  • Instances of short-term adverse reactions to the injections, including deaths, are often being underreported or not reported at all within the mainstream media.
  • Many doctors and scientists refute the need for the injection at all, and, many caution that severe, negative, long-term effects can and will result from the injections.

In support of the last assertion, I offer these three essential video presentations. Presentations which I strongly recommend for anyone trying to understand the opposition to the mainstream Covid/vaccination agenda. These presentations are linked below. If seriously pursuing knowledge in this area, at a minimum watch these. Other videos and articles, which essentially compliment and support the viewpoints expressed in the three essential videos are also linked below. One video in the second group is not directly addressing the Covid phenomena, but the material contained translates significantly into understanding what is going on around Covid. This latter video is an interview with Kari Mullis, the Nobel Prize winning inventor of the PCR test. The test which is widely used to determine the prevalence of the Covid-19 virus.

As I mentioned above, most people, myself included, are not experts in medicine, microbiology, virology, DNA and RNA research, and/or other aspects of the sciences involved in the issues. I venture to say very few medical doctors (M.D.’s) themselves are experts in the sciences relative to the issues involved. This is a particularly salient truth when it comes to the long-term effects of the mRNA concoctions being injected into millions of people around the world. To the best of public knowledge, no one is an expert in the long-term effects upon humans of the mRNA concoctions. Therefore having reputable, independent, authoritative medical doctors and scientists willing to share their expert perspectives is an invaluable asset. However, before venturing into examining these issues, it is to our benefit to be willing look at our own cognitive programming and, if needed, have the internalized resolve to question our own pre-existing beliefs.

THREE ESSENTIAL VIDEOS:

The first video is:

Dr. Dolores Cahill on Immunology, Antibodies, CVD19 – Interviewed by Computing Forever’s Dave Cullen.

For the second two essential videos, go to the website of Dr. Lee Merritt., former Navy physician and surgeon and past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. There, click on the tab labeled “Media” and watch the video entitled “Dr. Lee Merritt-SARS-CoV2 and the Rise of Medical Technocracy“. (This video has been taken down on Dr. Merritt’s webpage, here is a current active link.) Then return to the first page on the site and watch the video “Bio-Warfare and the Weaponization of Medicine Amid Covid“.

Coronavirus Lawsuits: PCR Tests ‘Unreliability’ is Now Being Used for ‘Class Action’

I strongly encourage everyone to also do your own research into these issues. Weigh all the evidence, consider possible ulterior motives of the people involved. Equip yourself to make an informed decision about two of the most important issues facing people from around the world. The questions are: 1. What is the reality of the purported Covid pandemic? And, 2. How effective and how safe are the “vaccines” being so intensely pushed by the media, big pharma, various public health entities and even governments?

Stay positive, keep the faith, do the next right thing.
