Episode 281 - Solutions: Overcoming Stockholm Syndrome

09/21/201328 Comments

In the 1970s, a strange psychological phenomenon was identified: in traumatic abduction situations, a certain percentage of the population is prone to falling in love with their abductors. But if we are living in a societal prison of the mind, then are there those who have fallen in love with their mental jailers? Find out more about societal Stockholm syndrome in this week's edition of The Corbett Report.

    Great episode. There’s a quote from Cody Wilson the creator of the Liberator 3D printed pistol. “Our fathers would have killed for far less”. Referring to the founding fathers and how they refused to be made slaves by tyrants. We have become much softer and mentally weaker. A generation of children in adults bodies.

    Catching up on older interviews/episodes. Nice touch using “Stockholm Syndrome” by Muse as outro music!

  3. Fact Checker says:

    Mass consciousness that might transcend Stockholm Syndrome will never be achieved by humanity because the masses are all inescapably mired in the most grandiose Stockholm-Syndrome love affair of all:

    Worship of the Jewish desert war-god YHWH.

    Christians yearn for nothing more than to bow and scrape before a vicious demonic entity that demands their obedience and servitude, on pain of “an eternal lake of fire”. And his undead embodied “son” (avatar) who is foretold to crush the masses beneath his feet like grapes and rule the nations of gentiles from a throne in Jerusalem.

    That is admittedly true for most keyboard-clackers on this very chat-board…and (as I understand) its host. This sad state of affairs only goes to show that the goyish Stockholm-slave mentality runs too deep, through too many past generations, ever to be transcended or dislodged. Even those who make their living grandstanding and preaching about “mass consciousness awakening” and other such claptrap are, themselves, blindly trapped in an unrecognized labyrinth of gaslighting and learned helplessness programmed into them by wicked, ancient Jewish myths of blood atonement and consecrated slavery.

    Fact is: human beings love being captives, no matter what they may say. They have no capacity to exist as anything but slaves. From the meekest masked covidist, to the webcam-sermon titan Mr. Corbett himself, everyone clings to the very chains that hold them fast to the comforting sting of the devil they know….

    It is, as they say, what it is

    • Truth says:

      The answers are for you Seeker,
      Do you exist? Do you think? Did you make yourself? Did you create the system in which advancement and knowing is possible for you? Do you desire to ascend to a higher understanding of Conciousness? Do you think letting go of long held hatred and denial may help you advance? Does God scare you? Do you fear God because you think God is evil, and how could you have responsibility before an evil God? Are you angry at God for your freedom?

      Do you desire to know all – And move beyond all knowledge into Love?

      Who is Jesus, what did he do, who killed him, why?

      If you desire to know, simply be like him, trust in God and you will know.

      Live and Love – God Blessed You Beloved One

      • Fact Checker says:

        “Do you exist?


        “Do you think?”


        “Did you make yourself?


        “Did you create the system in which advancement and knowing is possible for you?”


        “Do you desire to ascend to a higher understanding of Conciousness?”


        “Do you think letting go of long held hatred and denial may help you advance?

        I have no hatred, or denial, so, No.

        “Does God scare you?”

        No, because there’s no such thing.

        “Do you fear God because you think God is evil, and how could you have responsibility before an evil God?”

        No, because I don’t “fear God” in the first place.

        “Are you angry at God for your freedom?”

        No, but I am kinda irked at Santa Claus for short-changing me ever since I moved out of my parents’ house.

        “Do you desire to know all[?]”

        Sure, I guess; but I know omniscience is impossible, and conceptually incoherent.

        “And move beyond all knowledge into Love?”

        Not sure what this bit means.

        “Who is Jesus[?]”

        A fictitious character.

        “what did he do[?]”

        Nothing, because he didn’t exist.

        “who killed him[?]”

        Nobody needed to, because he was invented by the grifting pharisee Saul of Tarsus.


        Why what?

    • Duck says:

      Fact checker
      “….blindly trapped in an unrecognized labyrinth of gaslighting and learned helplessness…”

      Your description sounds autobiographical…. you promote defeatism and depopulation like a 33rd Masonic royal society member

      “… programmed into them by wicked, ancient Jewish myths of blood atonement and consecrated slavery….”

      The Jews have always hated Christianity, they have always fought it, mocked it and removed it from the public as much as possible.

      If you truly believe those words You have imbibed a fatal dose of the “jewish Revolutionary Spirit” (and anyone who wants to avoid your fate should read the book of that name by Dr EM Jones)

      • Fact Checker says:

        “The Jews have always hated Christianity, they have always fought it, mocked it”

        The pharisee Jew Saul of Tarsus invented Christinsanity for mindless goyim like you, specifically to create a punching bag to fight and mock. That’s the true Jewish revolutionary spirit: they create the fake “revolutions” for the sheeplike goyim to join, to move along the scripted dialectic.

        You’ve always been dancing to their (minor key) tune, goy. It’s shameful. You literally worship a fake Jew, invented by a real Jewish scoundrel, to induct the gentiles into worshipping the bloodthirsty desert war god YHWH. Sacrifice any good scapegoats lately?

      • Fact Checker says:

        And yeah, I’m defeatist, specifically because I know with absolute certainty that foolish goyim like you will never, ever, ever give up your Jewish programming. You, and all your fellow Christians, will cling to your Jewish god and your Jewish savior, even as you watch rabbis sodomize your daughters after both you and your daughters have been turned into brain-wiped bio-slaves by YHWH’s technological injections, grafts and implants. You and your descendants will be zomboid Noahide slaves for eternity, fellating rabbis morning, noon, and night, because your “Moshiach” will command you to do so.

        You’re a slave and a willing, eager beast of burden, in the thrall of rabbinical black magick myths, and there’s nothing I can do about that. You will never wake up, because you don’t want to wake up. You want to believe in your Jewish magick, no matter how it debases and degrades you.

        So yeah. I’m “defeatist”.

        • Duck says:

          “…So yeah. I’m “defeatist”….”

          Yes, but it’s far worse.

          Your so smart that you have outsmarted yourself and no longer see any reason to live other than to wallow in your own ego.

          Thinking without useful work is very damaging.

          • Fact Checker says:

            “Work” is for tax-donkey goyim, goy.

            So rest assured: your progeny will enjoy plenty of work…for eternity.

            • Duck says:

              Fact checker

              Lol… but even if what you say were TRUE they would still be happier then you are.

              A slave can be happy if he has a purpose but a person who has no purpose can never be happy…. outsmarted yourself, dude. Lol

              • Fact Checker says:

                Exactly like I said in the Soylent Green thread:


                “It won’t be so bad after all.”

                This is the mantra of the goyish slave. You, and your enslaved progeny, for innumerable generations, will always accept and interpret their slavery as “the best of all possible worlds.”

                That’s why determinism proceeds apace, and will forever. I much prefer to withdraw after just one lifetime of misery. To spare any future generations of my germline from the exploitation, vivisection, and desecration that your progeny will suffer for eternity.

              • Duck says:

                Fact checker

                Just want to check with you….if the doom pill your pushing was true you think that people would be made DELIBERATELY MISERABLE???

                Hahaha… what farmer goes out of his way to make his cattle suffer?

                No….you have just done the equivalent of a kid I knew who saw an injection coming and started screaming and crying….feeling the pain before it could even happen.

                Hahaha, you have defeated yourself before anything bad has happened, that’s pretty funny.

              • Steve Smith says:

                Duck, You remind me of the long suffering parent who is incapable of giving up hope in a rebellious ingrate of a child who can’t stop spewing hatred and bile in response to unceasing gestures of love.
                You’re a better human than I for sure.

              • Fact Checker says:

                “what farmer goes out of his way to make his cattle suffer?”

                It’s called “breaking” in horse husbandry.

                “before anything bad has happened”

                Nothing bad has happened in your world? Wow! What fucking planet do you live on?

                This is how blind goyim are. No matter how much they are punished, no matter how much they suffer, they thank and praise their Jewish god and their Jewish masters for another blessed and joyful day. The very essence of Stockholm Syndrome.

                But then again, I thought you just said that people were deliberately being made to “suffer” and “DELIBERATELY MISERABLE” (YOUR CAPS!). So you acknowledge that people are being harmed, yet still believe “nothing bad has happened”?

                You’re not making any sense at all.

              • Fact Checker says:

                You are aware, are you not, that the majority of humans on Earth have been forcibly injected with a deadly cocktail of bio-engineered sludge, right? Have you not heard about that? People have even died, Duck. Many have lost jobs and businesses too, Duck. I am among those, as are several other commenters on this board. But you aim to convince us all that “nothing bad has happened”? The enitre population of the world are being crushed in a psychopathic, punitive campaign of chronic stress and terror, but you’re just whistlin’ dixie, I guess?

                I recommend you refer to thecovidblog.com or childrenshealthdefense.org, and then decide whether “nothing bad has happened yet”. Absent that, I’m going to stop engaging with you on this board, since it does not appear that you are willing or able even to acknowledge manifest facts that go against your seeming faith that we live in some kind of perfect heaven of bliss and light. I mean, all Christians are deluded, but with this whole “nothing-bad-has-happened” thing, you have demonstrated that you are entirely disconnected from reality, and that there is no possible common ground for communication with you.

                I’m ignoring you, Duck, and I ask politely that you return the favor.

              • Fact Checker says:

                And as for you, Steve Smith, what happened to your extremely merciful and satisfactory pledge to ignore poor old Fact Checker? I was most content with that arrangement, and was more than happy to reciprocate in kind.

                I am here to speak to and for only those with the intelligence to accurately assess the gravity of the human situation, the honesty with themselves to acknowledge it, and the courage to change their beliefs and behaviors to adapt to the awful truths being revealed, and the infinite suffering in store for all future generations of humans. You, Steve Smith, have none of those qualities.

                Much like a certain tireless, fowl-mouthed commenter I will no longer name, you are a man of meager intellect and no insight or interest. I certainly have no interest in your bland, dogmatic religious platitudes, or your monotonous repetitions of pollyanna denial and apologism. I am certainly not interested in the constant, one-note belligerent piety that you describe as “unceasing gestures of love”. Only someone with Stockhom Syndrome is capable of interpreting threats of “worship my God or burn for eternity!” as “gestures of love”. Just as this video (ironically) explains, it is a telltale of Stockholm Syndrome to interpret the withdrawal of punishment as an act of mercy, or to interpret a reward for obedience as an act of love.

                And since I’m not a Christian, and I therefore do not have Stockholm Syndrome in favor of YHWH, I never asked for and never wanted any “unceasing gestures of love” (better known as threats and gleefully flung schadenfreude) from you or any fowl-mouthed wannabe basement preacher.

                I kindly request a resumption of our mutual nonengagement. Thanks in advance.

              “…I’m ignoring you, Duck, and I ask politely that you return the favor…”

              I will try… honestly I’ve given up hope for you and am just laughing these days.

              Anyone silly enough to take you seriously is probably a goner anyway

              • Steve Smith says:

                I wish I could laugh. The revulsion usually makes laughing difficult.

              • Duck says:

                Steve Smith

                Revulsion is what keeps us healthy, by withdrawing from something that can make us sick. Factchecker may make some people very unwell with his outlook.

    I watched this for the first time since you highlighted it today. Interesting and thought-provoking as usual. Thank you.

    I believe organizations, institutions and cooperative (public) projects are useful and necessary in modern society. But in many cases, as these grow into large and powerful bureaucracies, their level of accountability, honesty and effectiveness declines.

    Decentralization, greater transparency and continuous accountability are needed within any organization. There should always be opt-out choices that do not punish those who do not want to participate. When an idea, system or process cannot succeed unless everyone is forced to participate, then such an idea should be rejected as a bad idea.

    On Saturday April 23, 2022 this episode was featured on CorbettReport’s homepage as a FLASHBACK.
    FLASHBACK: Solutions: Overcoming Stockholm Syndrome (2013)

    “…and the beginning of an almost different Species. I think that the longterm game plan is to create a sort of sub-strata of humanity that are fit to be ruled basically….”
    I want to highlight Corbett’s presentation when he was talking with Adam Lane.
    QUEUE to the 20 minute mark if you are short on time.

    The subservient sub-strata of humanity is easily observable in this era.
    Oh no…Where’s my mask?

    Corbett gives us a variety of perspectives in this episode. “Learned Helplessness” is touched upon around the 13 minute mark.

    Corbett reviewed some solutions throughout the video, but I found the “solutions” presentation at the last part of the video to be pretty good.
    James discusses Withdrawing Consent and the many aspects to that.
    Furthermore, Corbett importantly talks about one’s Focus or direction of attention, especially in regards to a overly strong emotional resentment to the Authoritarians.

    • Duck says:

      “….The subservient sub-strata of humanity is easily observable in this era….”

      Consider that most people’s ancestors were slaves or serfs or whatever….to be honest it’s more of an anomaly that so many people were brought out of abject chattel status in christendom of the last few hundred years. Freedom, like plenty, is an unnatural state for most people thru most history….the Great Reset is just a return to normal

  6. Kellzilla says:

    Time flies! and yet your commitment doesn’t wane.
    James you are my daily reminder to act toward being a better human.

    thank you

    I wonder if the bank workers were shown a film like “Century of Enslavement: The History of the Federal Reserve” by the captors in Sweden and the bank hostage workers simply had a change of heart? I find it interesting that a bank and bank workers is the chosen situation symbolizing an example of Stockholm syndrome as if there’s some subliminal messaging taking place, that message being; “Don’t you dare have a philosophical robin hood attitude of stealing from rich bankers”. As if there was no other better example of this behavior in the history of mankind until 1973 when a bank was robbed. I find there could be dozens of more better examples for the example of “Stockholm syndrome” but the quintessential example is where bank workers turn on the bankers. “Stockholm Syndrome” type behaviors have been known way before the 1970s all the way back to the common slave of ancient times. Why is a bank robbery in 1973 used to define this term? It seems very strange to me.

    Today is Day 6 of the https://grand-jury.netwith links to the German Corona Committee http://www.corona-ausschuss.de/en (English) which began in early 2020 with it’s wealth of prominent speakers, including James. The ‘Americas Grand Jury’ was supposed to be for 5 days from April 11 to 15 but as of today, I could only find Day 1 at the CHD.TV and short extracts of each day on another site. Would appreciate info on their home website and the remaining days of recording. T.Y.

    In a time when the strangling digital/financial shackles of totalitarian transhumanist technocracy (high tech slavery) are tightening swiftly (especially here in Canada) I personally see one of the only viable means for “jumping over the little fence” (described in the experiment regarding “learned helplessness documented in “Corbett Report Radio 070 – Overcoming Learned Helplessness”) as getting out of and away from the population centers, securing land and taking steps to go off grid and cultivate one’s own food. The system is corrupt to the core and in my opinion is a top heavy parasitic system that should be divested from, allowed to crash, burn, wither and die. I do not seek to reform it, I seek to starve it and create a better way of living in it’s place.

    So, while I will never accept hopelessness or nor helplessness I do feel it would be a mischaracterization to describe getting out of the path of the ‘shocks’ our would be masters are targeting us with (the tools of subjugating us into their new technocratic slavery system) as “jumping over a little fence”. It is not an easy decision, nor an easy task, but it is worth it. It is more like ‘climbing over the fence’. I am in the process of doing that incrementally and it is extremely empowering and inspiring (but not easy, physically nor financially).

    I do not think it should be easy either. It is a path that invites us to become our best selves and seek allies and work together towards similar goals with integrity as our compass.. and that is the whole point after all isn’t it? Providing our family of humanity the impetus to step up, break existing patterns and put in the hard work to move into the next stage of our development and a more holistic way of existing on Earth.
