Learned Helplessness: A Psychological Anchor | Understanding Voluntary Slavery

(Justin Deschamps) The following article is a mainstream psychology piece discussing a well-known condition called learned helplessness. It is effectively what happens when a person’s will has been so fundamentally crippled that they no longer resist. Within the context of the human struggle for freedom, as waged against the powers that be, this condition is what I would call slave-training or think.

PBS Documentary on How “The Eugenics Crusade” Started in the U.S. – Not Nazi Germany

(B.N. Frank) I’m not saying that the well-funded publicly promoted and celebrated American Eugenics Movement wasn’t covered in my high school American History class.  But I feel like I’d remember learning about it.  I still shudder when I think of about the book, The Scarlet Letter.  It was only the last few years that remember seeing news coverage about states that once had laws allowing forced sterilizations.  These were apparently part of the American Eugenics movement.  Some people who were forcibly sterilized during that time period are being financially compensated.

7 Ugly Truths that Will Jolt You Awake

(Gary Z McGee) We live in an oligarchic plutocracy disguised as a democratic republic. Because a massive amount of wealth is concentrated in the hands of a few, we’re unable to maintain a healthy horizontal democracy. Instead we’re forced to deal with the snake of unhealthy vertical democracy which has the diabolical snakehead of plutocracy.

How to Reprogram Your Mind to Take an Active Role in Your Personal Evolution

(Jonathan Davis) For a long time we’ve been taught that evolution is a process that is happening to us. Thankfully we’re living in times where the human race is finally getting a grasp on the fact that we’re actually actively involved in how we evolve as a species.

Know Your Propaganda – Straw Man – The Art of Misrepresentation


(Stillness in the Storm Editor) In the following article, Shem from Discerning The Mystery offers some great insight about the straw man fallacy. While this might seem like some obscure academic reference, I can assure you that almost everyone succumbs to this kind of thinking from time to time. Briefly, raw information combined with interpretation produces a subjective experience of any data set—the automatic aspect of our philosophic nature. Facts or information alone are devoid of meaning, but when a fact or data point enters the field of our awareness, the automatic aspects of consciousness (the subconscious and superconscious) go to work. This "personalizes" the fact, producing emotions, insights, and inferences. For example, a batch of cookies baking in the oven often produces good feelings, and a desire to eat them. The smell of the cookie itself is the raw data, the fact, which is interpreted subjectively to produce secondary sensations that we normally associate with that smell. What this means is that our subjective experience acts as an intermediary between objective reality and what we perceive. We make decisions and choices from our subjective experience, not reality directly. As such, ensuring our perceptions, interpretations, and conclusions are accurate is incredibly important. In most instances, confrontations about ideas is not specific to the fact itself, it's focused on our inferences of the objective fact. We tend to confuse our interpretations with reality itself, which can lead to unproductive conversation if we aren't humble and thinking critically.

Where Does Wealth Really Come From? The Keys to Abundance: Trust, Law, and Fellowship | NESARA: Don’t Wait! Let’s Restore the Human Family… NOW

by Justin Deschamps,

Rumors and claims regarding NESARA, GESARA, and various other "prosperity programs" have been circulating the internet for decades. After research, there appears to be some truth to NESARA, which is the notion that a set of hidden accounts are being held in trust for some future age of economic prosperity, originally incorporated by the infamous Saint Germain. According to the story, when NESARA goes live, disbursements from these trust accounts will take place. However, what the idea or belief in NESARA also tends to do is stymy efforts by awakening populations to restore social trust in the human family, which if done, would see an incredible rise of prosperity and abundance before NESARA disbursements. In short, we don't need to wait for NESARA to begin creating the metaphysical structures that empower us to be abundant and restore the planet.
