    Starting around the 52:30 minute mark, Corbett solicits life-changing words.

    For me personally, I want to say that sometimes I find some profound statements made by Corbett Report Members on these comment threads.
    I don’t have them catalogued and would be remiss if I mentioned some, but not others.

    However, here is a very recent statement by Corbett Member Steve Smith…

    “Hey, you use what you got and do what you can.”

    • Alchemist says:

      Ditto on this one. Sometimes I visit this site just to read the comments. Many powerful words of insight here.

      Since the beginning of the scamdemic, in the frustrating moments, this excerpt from Corbett’s “Letter to the Future” has helped me have more compassion:

      “It is a term of derision, of course. “Sheeple.” But I like to think that it doesn’t just speak to our stupidity. It speaks to a naivety, an innocence. We are trusting and gentle creatures by nature. Peaceable. Cooperative. That is nothing to be scorned. If it weren’t for the predators in our midst, our failings would be counted as virtues.” – James Corbett

    “10 cents an issue for 40 pages with color!” — 9:30 minute mark.

    It doesn’t take many brain cells to grasp that value. Go make a copy of an 81/2 X 11 one page one-sided flyer at a printers.

    Donna and any lay-out people deserve a big shoutout. They did the hard stuff. It is very time-consuming.

    – Printed dissemination –
    I’ve mentioned this before many times, but will say it again.
    Keep in mind that this is prior to the internet…
    Back when I had different businesses, for the retail operations sometimes I would advertise with TV, radio, newspapers, signs and flyers (all for the same sale). I would have a pretty lady with a clipboard greet customers as they came into the place for the sale. She would survey “how they found out about the sale?”
    Always, always, flyers were the most cost-effective method of getting the word out with a response.

    I think that a broadsheet publication adds credibility and altitude to the words on the page. It’s physical nature gives it value as opposed to an easily discarded page on the internet.

    Hi James

    You mentioned an aggregator that allows you to choose what to aggregate and syndicate. I have built that tool last year, and it has the features you mentioned, and more, for example, a real search engine, indexing IPFS resources, indexing Bitchute channels. It is fully open source, and anybody can get it and create their own aggregator and search engine. Once the server is setup, users can generate aggregated RSS feeds from the source feeds they like.

    Here is a demo, try searching in its archive.
    The home page has links for the source code, and a video for installation

    RE: Possible Corbett podcast on impactful passages

    Here is one suggestion.

    The use of “conspiracy theory” to deter citizens from investigating historic events is paradoxical, to be sure. It suggests that those who commit criminal conspiracies can only be relatively powerless people who happen to live on the most strategically important lands, and conspiracies among rich, powerful people are impossible or absurd. It’s just that kind of doublethink mindset that has led us to where we are today as a nation.

    -Kevin Ryan, The CIA’s Influence Over the Media: Use of the Conspiracy Theorist Slur. 07/31/2019.

    • nosoapradio says:

      Yes indeed, very good choice! But even more shocking than the CIA coming up with the term is people who warn you about the term and then use it, literally, with no irony, against you, in precisely the way they’d initially proscribed! Of course, I’m referring to the likes of Chomsky and Caitlin Johnstone for example.

      and another (have to add htt to the beginning of the link):

      Just two examples but there’s a lot more where that came from, some more Chomsky-oriented and in more polemic style that I’ve left on these boards and that the site manager has quite laudably not erased.

      Much the way Chomsky used a free-speech issue to supposedly champion free-speech but consludes with him saying that if you question any of the details of the holocaust you lose your humanity…

      • nosoapradio says:

        no, I haven’t been drinking at 7 am, though in the panic of 10 seconds left to edit, I slurred on the work “concludes”…

        And the last Chomsky remark about championing free-speech in order to delineate the acceptable boundries of free-speech, is a comparison with the hypocritical behavior of loudly denouncing the term “conspiracy theory” and then wielding it, certainly to great effect.

        now I’m hamstrung in the hamster wheel…

    Hi James

    I cannot back this up with hard numbers but I believe I’ve read that more of humanity has suffered from their words than their deeds. By saying “I am not going to get the jab” or “this whole virus thing is a crock of nonsense”, we know that we can bring the conversation of friends or strangers to a complete halt.

    As a believer in the power of words I devised a little trick that I’ve used over the years. Might even help with the distribution of a newspaper or pamphlet. In no particular order, here are a few of my suggestions.

    Employ a few street corner homeless persons to pass out pamphlets or papers.
    Leave your paper, pamphlet or written message in the pews at church, on the seats of airplanes, cabs, busses or Uber.
    Tape your pamphlet to the inside door of public restrooms at gas stations or big box stores or restaurants. The dressing/changing rooms in department stores and gym lockers are a good venue.
    Depending on the size of the information you are distributing you might want to slip some into the kiosk cabinets that hold free publications for local news or real estate or the food advertisement leaflets.
    I frequently staple a quote from Payne or Franklin or Jefferson or Shakespeare to my utility/gas/internet etc bills when I mail the monthly payment. I refuse to use the online system.
    I’ve even slipped little notes into the pockets of clothes and pages of books I’ve donated to charity.
    The distribution system is only as limited as your imagination.
    Hope you enjoy.
    There are many of us out here getting our message across.

    Very eager to listen to this.
    First, I want to wrap up here in the comment section.

    In the past year and half, I seem to be in a recycling phase, re-experiencing the basic conditions of my birth and early childhood.

    This comment section threw me back into a second grade memory. A couple of boys came to me during recess, and said come to the fence, we have something to say to you. I was perplexed. I wasn’t curly blonde Susie LaFleur, their very own mini Marilyn Monroe. Not by a long shot.
    Anyway, I got there and they were lined up together with arms around the guy in the middle, who looked very embarrassed. They announced to me , in no uncertain terms, “You cannot be the smartest person in the class, it has to be a boy. This one! ”
    I didn’t argue. I was curiously amused, but I’ve found it to be the basic operating principle behind club houses replete with not allowed and keep out signs, both stated and unstated, visible and obscured. Total waste of time. I prefer to be safely outside of fences.
    I left those frightened boys behind at fifteen.

    I’ll drop in here now and then when I want to be entertained by some sword play or a cock fight.
    Rest in peace. Over and Out. Laughing Waters, laughing …laughing….laughing

    Oh!! To answer the mystery question, “Why don’t women leave abusive relationships?”, I’ll leave out the economic factors, and just inform you that as of 2018, feminism had triumphed so well that in both France and Japan, ONLY ONE WOMAN is murdered by her intimate partner EVERY THREE DAYS

    Non western nations? Simply “a massacre of women.”
    Nothing to be concerned about. . Back to the disembodied discussions.

  8. openlens says:

    As a frustrated activist-journalist trying to get his messages across, Phil Ochs took the advice of a friend who said to him “If you want a lot of people to really hear your message, put it in a song. ”

    The rest is his-story of music and his-story of activism.

    So as predicted some 3 years ago on these boards the grand solar minimum and the onslaught of GCRs blasting into the atmosphere and down under the surface of the planet seem to be titillating the subterranean fluids causing more frequent and intense eruptions of the Earth’s volcanos and I see that Mr. Hancock is no exception to this tendency.

    On another note, my thanks to Mr. Corbett for offering some inkling as to what the printing press conspiracy might’ve been about.

    Oddly, faced with the inspiring challenge of finding life changing words, I felt at a total and hopeless loss. The more I groped the less I grasped. I couldn’t think of a single thing… I think I’m personally in a grand solar minimum myself but from the solar side, not the terrestrial one like Mr. Hancock.

    Probably the words that shaped my destiny were found in the lyrics of the albums I listened to as a teen-ager. The one that resounds most readily in my ears is a phrase from a song that Barbara Streisand sang called The Woman in the Moon which was “…they believed that strange was a word for wrong, well not in my song…”. Kinda cliché I guess. Kinda Ally Sheedy in the Breakfast Club, dandruff and all. “…I was raised in a “no you don’t world”
    Overrun with rules
    Memorize your lines and move as directed…”

    Then, the seemingly incongruous juxtaposed words “Carbon Eugenics” impacted greatly my world view from a materialistic point of view.

    And the apparently innocuous combination of“Being There” as the title of a life-changing movie made their impact on a more spiritual level once digested and redigested over the years. “Yes, I understand…” and “As long as the roots are not severed, all is well. And all will be well in the garden.”

    and of course, the Trivium and the master sophist’s famous duo “Who care’s?” pushed my buttons like perhaps nothing ever had before. The profound deception in terms of, shall we say, psycho-social history, that this seemingly superficial, glib, off-hand remark revealed… A violent punch smack into the solar plexus of my world view.

    But I guess the saying that has helped me to stay more or less centered in what currently appears to be a painfully entropic universe is a sentence I’ve already immortalized on these boards spoken by my “modern theater” university teacher, Virginia Scott, who said (not “that said”);

    “I don’t know what I think until I see what I say”.

    So thank Allah for this website and its creator.

    Now I’ll try to go find a little inspiration and/or spiritual sustenance from one of my favorite songs by Freddie Mercury, another volcano. It’s called Mustapha, a tour de force of jibberish and/or scatting in Persian:

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      “I don’t know what I think until I see what I say.”

      I grasp some of the profound nuances of that mental painting.

  10. Torus says:

    Ernie and James are so different in their style, presentation, and cadence (to use the term). But when their unique minds come together in a friendly conversation, ideas erupt, spontaneous order flows, and creative solutions begin to form. It’s like witnessing tectonic forces at work! – only a slight exaggeration.

    As to some feedback on words that have shaped society…
    My big word/phrase to contribute is “politically correct”. As a result of this overt liberal maneuver, an array of new words have been formed, new norms established, and new offences rebuked. Additionally, it forced both writers and speakers, to be deliberately selective in their word choice; not for clarity of content or thoughtful rhetorical technique, but to appease some ideology and integrate a new standard of conformity. New “word Nazis” went a power trip!
    “How dare you use therm ‘stewardess’ the PC term is ‘flight attendant’. Don’t you know that’s sexist?”
    If my memory serves, it was the mid ’90s when PC culture really took hold, though the term certainly existed long before that.

    Some of my favorite words are those that hold within them complex ideas or depth of meaning. Loaded words you might say, most effective when used sparingly. I also like a good pun. My mother is quick with the puns, always chuckling at her own wit. She has a lovely sense of humor! Another class of words I enjoy is the double entendre` (not to be confused with double-speak). There are so many literary devices at our disposal. The Corbett Crowd often makes effective use of them!

    James, thanks to your Solutions Watch interview with Ernie Hancock I was inspired to order a thousand copies of his newspaperfor distributing here in Arizona and elsewhere. It can be passed out anywhere in the US because the freedom articles are relevant everywhere. For the larger quantity I called and spoke with Donna Hancock who did the excellent layout work on the newspaper. Ernie even called me back and we had a great chat. So, get out there activists and do something to spread the freedom message. This seems like a no brainer activist activity! Tom Compton, Phoenix, AZ
