    Hopefully I’m in the rite spot. This is my first open thread. I’ve heard a few people discussing Jordan Peterson being controlled opposition. I’ve been struggling finding some basis for this. I did see discussion about his tweet on social media privacy and no one should be having an expectation of anonymity. I find his discussions on gender to be interesting. I did find this article on The Unz Report pertaining to Jordan’s comments on Iran. https://www.unz.com/aanglin/jordan-peterson-tells-goyim-to-call-their-congressmen-and-tell-them-to-overthrow-iran-government/ I’m not sure why I’m so focused on this specific subject since there’s so much more I have questions about. Just figured maybe someone would have some direction or insight for me on this subject. Thanks in advance for your insight.

      “..Just figured maybe someone would have some direction or insight for me on this subject…”

      my “insights” (or is that “opinions” ??? Lol) are

      Youtube will feed you JP and Joe Rogan all day, but it will work to keep you away from EM Jones or Blackpilled. They WANT you to consume JP’s work because it breads passivity, rather skillfully masked as self improvement.

      1)JP has made a good living telling people stuff they used to learn back when they had dad’s and friends and such. Whatever his intentions the fact that there are so many ignorant, directionless young men is a disaster.

      2) He is silent or on the wrong side when it comes down to issues that actually matter, such as-

      He was calling for the end to online anonymity a while back

      I saw a video “way Of the World” did where he played JP being asked if the massive over representation of jews in the Bolshevik revolution was because of their ethnic hatred against slavic russians and JP had an utter brain fart and just said “I cant….. ”

      3) He is effectively a father figure to many young men, and while he does tell them good things on the whole he keeps them from radicalizing into any kind of interest group that could push back against the deliberate genocide.

      4)Andrew Tate is serving the same role as a role model for kettleing young men not attracted to JP’s style. Tate is literally a pimp and EM Jones wrote about how the Black Pimp was created to direct the strongest men in the Black community and get them to prey on their own people rather then becoming a threat to the system

      the chapter on on Gordon Parks explains WHY the pimp archetype was created. Wanna be Chads are a menace to the ruling class…better to turn them on the women folk

        As someone one that seems to have strong feelings about Jewish people and Jewish history, I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on this documentary series:


        Several parts of the series offer a very judeocentric perspective on the scamdemic (and it’s parallels to the rise of fascism in Germany in the 30-s) so I would be particularly interested in hearing your thoughts on that aspect of the material presented.

        • Duck says:

          “…As someone one that seems to have strong feelings about Jewish people and Jewish history..”

          Just to clarify I dont have strong feelings about jewish PEOPLE as much as the ‘Jewish Revolutionary Spirit’ (The book of that name by Dr EM Jones being THE BEST text I know that really explains that phenomenon)

          MOST people in the world are, to a greater to a or lesser degree, inhabited by that ideology.

          There IS an ethnic component, in that jewish folks tend to have the quite natural fear that a Minorit feels about the danger a Majority poses towards them. They thus act rather like the way Southern Whites acted (without the need for a confab to plot their behavior out) to the threat to their own position and safety they felt from Southern Blacks.

          I will take a look at the doc if I can get it without needing to sign up, but I will say that the rise of National Socialism (which is similar to, but a very ‘German’ flavor of Fascism) is NOTHING LIKE the story that most people imagine.

          (Note: I am not in favor of Nazism)

          Nazism pretty much grew up because the german people were reacting to the deliberate destruction of their economy and political and moral value system.

          The majority of germans were somewhat pro-nazi because they did not want one of the many attempted commie revolutions to succeed and create a German version of the “Hungarian Soviet” or the horrors of Bolshevik Russia. It is absolutely true that a mass of the Bolshevik revolutionaries (AND the Wall Street bankers that funded them, see Dr Spence “Wallstreet and the Russian Revolution”) were Ethnic Jews. Most of the German Socialists were Ethnic Jews.

          EVEN Winston Churchill said this

          the best books to get an overview of the situation in Germany at that time and what COULD have happened are
          1924:the Year That made Hitler by Peter Ross Range
          and (FICTION!!!!) “Time and Time again” by Ben Elton

          The mask is coming off on the rampant perversion and destruction of society as the JRS has become the norm for our own society (links next post) and the lockdown is IN NOW WAY a repeate of the rise of Nazism….. Trumps election is something of an echo of it as a populist leader rises promising to fix things (even though he turned out to be a dud)

          • Gavinm says:


            You do not have to sign up for anything to watch the 5 episodes linked above as far as I know.

            I look forward to hearing what you think of the content in the documentary.

            • Duck says:


              Sorry… I am 20 min into the first one and its really nothing but jewish folks talking about the holocaust.

              Now…. I dont wanna be a d@#k but it is not really drawing any parallels so far and as to people memories
              1)I am pretty sure there were not 42THOUSAND concentration camps the way the old lady is saying….. https://ww w. jewishvirtuallibrary. org/how-many-concentration-camps agrees with me.

              Also when it comes to peoples memories I tend to be kinda skeptical since THIS old guy (a retired psycologist…..lol) told all kinda heart wrenching stories about his time in the camps. It made me feel so bad for him….

              UNTIL it turned out he was a dirty liar
              (link in next post)
              (I will just reply to myself so you can scroll down)

            • Duck says:

              Its kinda like the lie about human soap….


              or the frankly absurd Ellie Wiesel books where he suggests that bodies were burned on pryres with gasoline….. try burning a pig or a sheep that way and see how well it works ๐Ÿ˜‰ The fact that his KZ number was not actually his number also kinda makes him out to be a liar.

              However, in a lot of ways the Holocaust IS like covid, in that it is MOSTLY (not wholey) virtual creation that exists thru media in the minds of people who never saw the events but FEEL them in a visceral manner thru media.

              Things like the Boy In The Striped Pajamas and other fiction give people the ability to FEEL that such things went on even though the objective reality is much less sure.

              I’m actually old enough that I’ve seen the holocaust story change within my own lifetime, the same way that the Covid Narrative did. Again…not a great fan of nazis here

              • Duck says:

                Though that kinda story has a long propaganda history


              • Gavinm says:


                I got an email notification that you responded in a comment by saying:

                “Sorry… I am 20 min into the first one and its really nothing but jewish folks talking about the holocaust.

                Now…. I dont wanna be a d@#k but it is not really drawing any parallels so far and as to people memories”

                I cannot find that individual comment here, so I am not sure if you edited that, or if it is awaiting moderation, but in any case, thanks for your candor.

                I`ll be honest with you, your apparent unwillingness to listen to the testimony of elders that survived atrocities and your apparent intent to actively seek to downplay the suffering and deaths of millions in Europe in the late 30-s and early 40-s sends a shiver up my spine.

                That kind of coldness is not something I am capable of addressing or helping with in a comment thread on the internet. Perhaps, the limited communication medium of little characters written on pc monitors is resulting in my grossly misunderstanding you, and you in fact hold love in your heart for all your fellow humans (regardless of religion, ethnicity, skin color or class) and you feel deep compassion for those that went through hell during the democidal regimes of the past. I hope that is the case, though much of what you write in these threads seems to indicate otherwise.

                Therefore, since it is prayer that is intended to ask God to offer you what is deserved either way, I will again say… ๐— ๐—ฎ๐˜† ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ต ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—น๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ ๐—ด๐—ถ๐—ณ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ธ ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜๐—ผ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜†๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜€ ๐—ฎ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ.

              As I said…too many liars have skunked the holocaust.

              If you cant look at facts coldly (see above links) then you can not see reality clearly.

              Truth trumps moral outrage in a healthy mind.

              • dokktor says:

                @duck I have researched NS Germany for a very long time. The wartime propaganda, indoctrination, and media constantly push the narrative that Germany at that time was evil monsters and magically went back to just regular Germany after the war [that was pushed on them] was over.

                I can boil it down in simple terms.. The international bankers made that war happen and are the ones who fund the propaganda behind it, just like the ones who are responsible for the plandemic, the federal reserve, economic terroriism, etc… and most of the hardcore shitty things that happen in the world.

                I’m not one to say “It’s the jews” because the majority of them are just regular people doing regular people things. The wealthy elite shit stains with their limp dick god complexes and the corrupt assholes, cowards that do nothing, the woefully ignorant, are at fault. I could care less if they call themselves Jewish to be shielded from critisism or wear spiked gimp suits at breakfast.

                Simple logic and math combined the fact that it is illegal to question what happened or didn’t happen only in that part of history in most parts of the world says enough. The truth doesn’t need laws to protect it from falling apart, the holocaust does.

        • steve.Con says:

          Thanks for all the responses. I appreciate the insight and links to information.

      • steve.Con says:

        Thanks for the thorough reply. I appreciate you taking the time to share so much. My kid is a Tate fan despite my constant criticism of him. I’ll be following up on the information you’ve shared.

      • steve.Con says:

        Can you direct me to blackpilled?

        • Duck says:


          HERE he is on Bitchute…. This one “Viral Video” is a good one, and I think this may be the best place for his OLD videos which were mostly Propaganda breakdowns of movies.
          HE is mostly on ODysee these days.

        • Duck says:


          Here is his Odysee link, he streams quite often.

          Heads up though he is kinda racist (though he has toned down the language A LOT) and probably “NSFW”

          I liked his video essays better the streams but good streams on Odysee are

          “Box Cutter edition” on 9/11 and how the “box cutter” story was made up because the person who reported it to her Gov high up husband COULD NOT HAVE MADE THE CALL

          “Dont SAy Gay” on normalizing homosexuality and cultural engineering that stuff

          His MASSIVE PatCon Edition on how the 90’s Millita movement got psyop’d and killed with Lawfare (I have not watched it all…not had time)

          Traffic edition on the AMAZING James Trafficant….and almost honest politician who actually stood up to Israe dying suddenly in a tragic accident……

          Consent edition is the one on “the century of self” doc…actually I think he did a few of those.

          And he had one on ‘Hollywoodism’ which was the “EMpire of their own” doc on hollywood from the 90s

      • lotusblossom says:

        Here is a video of Peterson giving a lecture in university. I don’t see how this is “breeding passivity in young men”. He actually tells them that real men are the protectors and that’s how they get the girls!


    • Paul says:

      He appears to support Zionism, but I find sticking to his discussions within his area of expertise it becomes difficult to understand why people have all these negative opinions of Peterson. However, when I watch people discussing the issues with Peterson, I generally don’t find them discussing any of the stuff from his professional work (pre- “pop” psychologist status).

      I observe this to be par for the course, where someone who is an expert in one realm goes off into other realms where they are laypeople, but have a podium and an audience.

    • Gavinm says:


      I do not know anything about his opinions on Jewish people, gender psyops or privacy but I know he is pushing detrimental Statist Delusions on the general population and so that is my issue with him.

      “I’m Prepared To Become The Prime Minister Of Canada” | Jordan Peterson :


      I think James Corbett spoke about the dangers of the religion of Statism succinctly and astutely when he said:

      “No, I do not want better elections. I do not want to “clean up the system.” I do not want to “get the money out of politics” and “make sure every vote is counted” and “drain the swamp” so we can “Make America [or any other geographical area] Great Again.”

      The state is not a benevolent force, despite what the most brainwashed of statists believe. It is not even a neutral tool that can be used for good or ill, as those who consider themselves pragmatists believe. It is violence. It is force. It is aggression. It is people believing that what is wrong for any individual to do is perfectly OK if an agent of the state does it.

      If I steal, it is theft. If the state steals, it is taxation. If I kill, it is murder. If the state kills, it is warfare. If I force someone to work for me involuntarily, it is slavery. If the state does it, it is conscription. If I confine someone against their will, it is kidnapping. If the state does it, it is incarceration. Nothing has changed but the label.

      What binds us to the state is the belief that there is a different morality for anything that has been sanctified through the political process. “Oh, 50%+1 of the population voted for forced vaccinations? Then I guess we have to comply.” If you scoff at that sentence, how about if the vote were 100%-1? Would that change the morality of resistance? How about if forced vaccinations were mandated by the constitution? Then would you be compelled to submit?

      Does the ballot box transform the unethical into the ethical? Of course not. But I’ll tell you what it does do: It makes everyone who casts their ballot a part of the process that legitimizes the murder and violence committed by agents of the state.”

      I agree with James 100% on that.

      Anyone attempting to carrot and stick people along the path of perpetual involuntary governance is someone that advocates for using violence and coercion to force others to do something against their free will (for “the betterment of the community” and “for democracy”), Thus, Jordan Peterson is not a person I have any interest in involving my self with.

      • Steve Smith says:

        โ€œPeterson is not a person I have any interest in involving my self with.โ€

        If you were to segregate yourself from everyone who believes in and supports the state, you would severely have limited your circle of associates.
        Iโ€™m sure that you must have acquaintances, friends and family members who are still caught up in the delusion of the legitimacy of authoritarian rule but who also offer value to the community in other ways.

        Awakening is not a light switch. Its not either off or on. Everyone falls somewhere on a curve of enlightenment donโ€™t they?

        If we completely cut everyone from our lives who havenโ€™t yet emerged from the morass of lies, how can we expect things to change?

        • Gavinm says:

          Hey Steve,

          Glad you pointed that out and provided an opportunity for clarifying my attitude towards Jordan Peterson and an opportunity for exploring whether or not I am applying my attitude towards him, to others in my life that also involve themselves with statist delusions.

          When I said I am not interested in involving my self with him, what I meant is, I am not going to spend hours watching his speeches, donating to his work, promoting his statements to others or voting for him in any future elections. From my perspective, my time would be more wisely spent working with my own two hands to build the foundation for the life and community I want to live in and contribute towards rather than hoping someone else is going to do that for me.

          If Jordan Peterson came up to me (or someone brought material of his to my attention or a way to communicate with him to my attention) and he was interested in building voluntary funding or education systems related to regenerative agriculture, preserving ancient heirloom seed varieties, food forests and bioremediation of damaged ecosystems, I would say “right on man, I am willing to team up with you on that”. But until then, he is just some talking head saying things that sound good and promising things to people (most of those things being part of a belief system that goes against my moral compass) thus, I will ignore him.

          With regards to “acquaintances, friends and family members who are still caught up in the delusion of the legitimacy of authoritarian rule but who also offer value to the community in other ways.” That is certainly the case yes, and I interact symbiotically with a number of them locally to work towards shared goals (most of which are related to the things i listed above that would be the things that would motivate me to pay attention to a person like Jordan Peterson). Some of these people I interact with locally are still under the impression that “if we just vote the right people in, everything will get better” yet they are also people that organize programs to educate children about regenerative/permaculture gardening, food preservation, seed saving and composting programs. Thus, I forge alliances with them as they do indeed offer a very meaningful value to this community (and more importantly) they offer their time and energy towards co-creating a shared future for our human family that is based in reciprocity with the living Earth and teaching the children to be able to provide for themselves while respecting and having reverence for the other beings we share this world with.


          • Gavinm says:

            (continued from above..)

            As far as my personal family members go though, I unfortunately cannot say that I see much of what they choose to do and say as offering a value to the communities they are a part of (nor the broader community of our human family that we are all a part of).

            That being said, despite my family’s atrocious, morally bankrupt and deplorable behavior towards my wife and my self (as well as countless other unvaccinated people that they attempted to bully) I have not cut them out of my life. I have set healthy boundaries and refuse to be their punching bag, but my door is always open to them if they come in the spirit of friendship and love (I have told them all this many times, even after they cut my wife and I out of their lives in the wake of their mRNA injection fanaticism).

            I agree that the pathway to expand our awareness, open our minds, hearts and become consciously aware of our spiritual being is not a ‘light switch’. I honor that all beings are at their own place on that path to unfold but I also choose to devote the majority of my energy to aligning my co-creative potential with those that have already made the choice to look within, to ask the hard questions, to recognize the sacredness of the living Earth and to choose to courage to be true to their selves (despite the increasingly significant social/professional and other consequences for doing so in this world where our dominant culture is driven by superficiality, distraction, scapegoating, excuse making, materialism, addiction, fear and ego).

            I trust that those who have chosen to come here to the Earth to awaken in this lifetime will receive guidance and opportunities from God to make choices that will align them with that path. Their path and their choices are not my responsibility, the best I can do is strive to live by example and have an open hand for those that are guided to cross my path, to offer assist those who are motivated and willing to co-create in the shared future I (and countless others) currently work towards.

            So in a nutshell, no I do not think ‘cutting statists out of my life’ simply because they are statists is a productive or helpful choice. I offer an open hand to them, just as Mother Earth does, and I am interested in collaborating with any that are willing to work towards co-creating a better future for those that will call this place home after we are gone.

            Thanks for your thought provoking comments and questions.

        • Gavinm says:


          ps – to be fair to my blood family, there are a few relatives (a couple cousins and an auntie/uncle that seemed to go totally off grid when the covid 1984 scamdemic started and I have not heard from them in years). They could theoretically be doing things that are of value to their local communities. As far as I know, the auntie and uncle (last time I heard form them like 5 years ago) were qausi-luddites, organic veggie growers and sheep farmers in Tasmania, so if they are still doing that then thats cool, but given they despise all technology (and do not really respond to hand written letters either) I do not really have a way to engage with them, so its kind of a moot point. Then there are my stealthy cousins that I also have not heard from in 5-10 years, one was a professional kayaker and kayak designer last time I heard, and the other one was really into solar punk and was creating a specialized gourmet delicatessen in Calgary last time I saw him, so either of them could be doing some things that are of value to their community. None of those 4 people attempted to push injection propaganda or coercion on my self or my wife, but they do ignore attempts I have made to reach out and see how they are doing, so not really sure whats going on there.

          Anyways, just wanted to be fair and not unduly paint them all with the same brush..

      Statism is the world’s most dangerous religion.


      • Duck says:


        “…Statism is the worldโ€™s most dangerous religion….”

        Without “state-ism” (and TBH I do think that the idea of a Propositional state like the USA COULD have worked somewhat) people are forced to a lower, more natural level of organization.

        Without the state people must coalesce around RELIGION, POLITICS or RACE. I much prefer religion out of those three options. Christianity, aside from being objectively true, is the only true cross racial organizational principle that I know of.

        The idea that you can exist outside of some organizing principle is the idea of an ‘Open Society’ where you end up powerless and at the mercy of the “Total State” that Auron macintyre writes about


        The “populist Delusion” book is a good explanation as to why the atomized, disorganized Majority is ALWAYS at the mercy of the organized Minority

        • Gavinm says:


          I disagree with your assertion that says “Without the state people must coalesce around RELIGION, POLITICS or RACE”.

          Firstly, the most innate characteristics within human beings are knowable without dogmatic belief systems. That shared knowing of the innate spiritual spark that exists within all conscious beings can serve to be a guiding awareness and shared acknowledgment of that which connects us all, serving to provide people something to “coalesce” around in the absence of politicians, systems that advocate for the segregation of humans based on arbitrary external physical differences, or preachers of dogmatic belief systems. The only thing that has to happen for that to be made possible is for us to nurture children to embrace and cultivate that which they already know innately (their divine spark within) and not attempt to program them to adopt our multi-generational baggage. If they are encouraged to look within on their own terms, and encouraged with love, we do not require any statism, dogmatic religions, delusional tribalism nor politicians of any kind. Since the inevitable result of looking within (with humility, courage and a genuine heart felt intent to know oneself and the Divine) is to directly perceive the existence of God and one’s own soul, this awareness can provide a universal awareness and multi-cultural motivation for voluntary collaboration guided by the non-aggression principle.

          Christianity, as a dogmatic belief system and global institution has some gems of wisdom that still exist within it’s texts. Though I think it is worth pointing out, that those pages have been pillaged, strategically manipulated, altered, censored and distorted by multiple power hungry and delusional humans. This (combined with other variables related to the separation/reductionist mentality) has resulted in the way in which that belief system has been pushed and represented here on the land that was once called Mshike Mnise (which means “Turtle Island” in the Anishinaabemowin language) resulting in much suffering, depravity, loss of life and ecological devastation.


        • Gavinm says:

          (continued from above..)

          There were many religions and spiritual practices that existed in what we now call “North America” before the Europeans came to claim the land as their own and commit genocide (killing off up to 98% of the local population in some areas) and though there was a great diversity in their cultural practices and belief systems, they all shared several common themes. Some of these cultures formed democracies (such as the Haudenosaunee Confederacy) others were matriarchal societies but the one throughline that can be observed in the traditional views and spiritual teachings of all of the indigenous cultures of Turtle Island is that they recognized all of our fellow non-beings on Earth as persons and deserving of our respect and reverence. They also all acknowledged the existence of a singular Creator being (for which different cultures had different names). Also, something that is of critical importance to realize about the difference between the religion and spiritual beliefs that used to guide the people that called this land home, compared to the imported European religion, is that all the various indigenous teachings viewed our non-human fellow beings on Earth as wise elders, from which we had much to learn.

          The arrival of the imperialistic colonial Christians brought with them a mentality that starkly contrasted the dominant worldviews of the peoples that lived here. They attempted to push a belief system that has the polar opposite view of the natural world and those non-human beings we share it with. It taught people that we humans should ‘conquer nature’, ‘tame the wilderness’, that we humans are the only blessed and holy beings, and that we had been given God given right to “have dominion over” all our fellow beings (and use them for our own selfish needs and preferences). In essence, the imported European religion brought with it a humanocentric and hubristic worldview.

          If I look out the window right now I can see the result of that belief system, for hundreds of kilometers in all directions, total devastation of the ancient Carolinian forest that used to cover all of southern Ontario. If I go and dip my cup in a stream here and drink it, I will taste and feel the results.. and for what? “Progress”? “Manifest Destiny”? Righteous Christian settlers exerting their “God given” right to enforce their “dominion” of the natural world?

          (continued from above..)

          Ancient food forests that were intentionally created and managed by indigenous peoples for centuries were chopped down by arrogant Christian colonists that wanted to implement their relatively primitive (and extremely degenerative) mono-culture agriculture systems. Now instead of regenerative, diverse, nutrient dense, self perpetuating, decentralized food systems (which persisted for centuries to Thousands Of Years before the Europeans arrived) we have endless fields of GMO corn and soy, poisoned rivers and lakes and children that can recognize 1000 corporate logos but less than ten plant species.

          The same devastation has been inflicted all across this continent (and beyond) in a matter of only a few hundred years, yet the people who called this land home before the Christians came existed with a relative equilibrium and symbiotic dynamic with the ecosystems for millennia. This leads one to ask the question, was it really the Europeans who were “primitive savages”? The ecological and agricultural evidence certainly seems to indicate the European’s technical understanding of the natural world and their foresight to honor the ecosystems we depend on far was sorely lacking when compared to those that lived here for millennia prior.

          Robin Wall Kimmerer (who is an author, scientist and citizen of the Potawatomi Nation) comments on the difference in the world view of her ancestors to the worldview of the European colonialists by saying:

          “It is a hallmark of our time in human history that we think we are alone, perched at the top of the pyramid of life, in charge of it all.. ..Aided by religion that made God in the image of man, humans alone were perceived to have the capacity for reason, for sentience, for choice, for language. But long before that error was promulgated, people knew the trees were storytellers. But then we forgot. Or were made to forget by the ones who chased divinity out of the forest and forced it into the sky. The stories of trees were erased from our knowing..” (quoted from https://www.yesmagazine.org/environment/2021/10/29/hearing-the-language-of-trees )

          My ancient Celtic and Druidic ancestors also embraced a world view which acknowledged the sacredness of all life (not just human life) and in a similar way to the people that called the land I now live on home before me, they were involved with creating societies that flourished for millennia without police or prisons.

            “….Firstly, the most innate characteristics within human beings are knowable without dogmatic belief systems. That shared knowing of the innate spiritual spark that exists within all conscious beings can serve to be a guiding awareness and shared acknowledgment of that which connects us all, serving to provide people something to โ€œcoalesceโ€ around in the absence of politicians, systems that advocate for the segregation of humans based on arbitrary external physical differences, or preachers of dogmatic belief systems. The only thing that has to happen for that to be made possible is for us to nurture children to embrace and cultivate that which they already know innately (their divine spark within) and not attempt to program them to adopt our multi-generational baggage. If they are encouraged to look within on their own terms, and encouraged with love, we do not require any statism, dogmatic religions, delusional tribalism nor politicians of any kind…..inevitable result of looking within (with humility, courage and a genuine heart felt intent to know oneself and the Divine) is to directly perceive the existence of God and oneโ€™s own soul, this awareness can provide a universal awareness and multi-cultural motivation for voluntary collaboration guided by the non-aggression principle…”

            OK…. you realize that you are basically saying the “noble Savage” BS that was an invention of Rich Enlightenment era perverts and weirdos? Aside from that do you not see that A MASS COALESCENCE AROUND SUCH KINDS OF LOOSELY DEFINED SPIRITUALITY HAS NEVER, AND WILL, NEVER HAPPEN because it does not fit the nature of man.

            IF it did there would have been at least one such culture in the past.

            You even say the same things about educating kids that these proto-wokists said and the religious line you propound is 100% in line with the Rockerfeller NWO one world plan????

            As to โ€œ..y religions and spiritual practices that existed in what we now call โ€œNorth Americaโ€ before the Europeans…โ€

            You mean the people who cut out peoples hearts to feed the sun? Such native peoples were EVERY BIT as , or even more, bloodthirsty as European colonists

            iindicates that you are not aware that the Druids did masses of Human sacrifices and the Gauls (pre-Roman conquest) had reduced the lower classes to serf status under the ruling Aristocrats.

            Sorryโ€ฆ. But while such human sacrifice will no doubt return as the NWO religion gears up its laughable to compare such religions to Christianity which tells adherents to killโ€ฆ.. ? NO ONE.

            Your thinking is not dissimilar to crazier Anabaptists and folks like the Tabourites and (IIRC) the Adamites who ran around naked (being “sinless” lololo) murdering people and stealing their stuff.

              Just because something has not existed in the past, does not mean we are not capable of striving to make it so in the future. Or perhaps you think perpetual stagnation in the way we have been doing things is a viable option.

              Your lashing out, attempting to engage in ad hominem attacks, your attempts to vaguely associate my ideas with creepy people or mentalities and name calling in general tells me that there is no longer any potential for productive or constructive discussion here.

                I DO however know that ONLY EUROPEANS have every felt that this kind of behavior is bad….and the reason for that is NOT some magic ‘white-man gene’ but the cultural change that Christianity wrought on them.

                YOU on the other hand spend a good deal of time talking down your own people and talking up other peoples that you appear woefully ignorant about.

                When you hold onto hate, fallacious superiority complexes and anger in your heart, you are not only poisoning the communities you are a part of, you are also poisoning yourself (mentally and physiologically). It takes a lot of courage to choose to be vulnerable after a life time of programming, to let go of the coward’s armor that is hate/fear and expose one’s heart to look out at others with love, but I will pray to God that you are given every opportunity to do so in the time you have left on this Earth.

          (continued from above..)

          Thus, I would suggest that while some may prefer statism or institutionalized Christianity as a guiding principle in their lives and/or a lens through which to perceive the divine and the sacred, it is not the only lens, nor have those lenses shown themselves to be very effective at creating favorable results historically speaking (that is, if you value forests, ecological diversity, clean water and air at all).

          There are other paths and ways of seeing each other, the living world and the divine that are just as valid, and history teaches us that they can provide much more stable and regenerative results.

          While I do not think one could accurately describe the diverse indigenous peoples of Turtle Island (nor my ancient Druidic/Celtic ancestors) as “voluntaryists”, they certainly (IMO) had perspectives that would be an improvement on how we perceive the world and those we share it with today. While I acknowledge that no ancient culture was perfect, and the Druidic ways/Celtic tribes and indigenous peoples of Turtle Island are no exceptions, I choose to heed the warning and guidance offered in this Prophecy Of The Seventh Fire (if you are not familiar, you can learn more about it here: https://vimeo.com/198949676 ) and to look to my ancestors for guidance on my path to choose correctly at this critical fork in the road.

          Therefore, I reject statism outright and I do not endorse dogmatic religious belief systems that push a degenerative (and fallacious) humanocentric worldviews.

          I choose to nurture a direct connection with the Creator of all things by looking within so that I do not require any ‘spiritual middlemen’ in churches or in the pages of books to know the truth. I choose to cultivate that which I wish to see in the world around me within, and plant the seeds for it to spread into my local community, in this sacred task I have no need or want for the involvement of state, the church nor any politician.

      • enso says:

        Exactly. Statism is a literal religion, because it requires blind faith in an omniscient, omnipotent and non-existent being: the state

    • lotusblossom says:

      Dr. Jordan Peterson does have some good advice, contrary to what some people here are saying. His stance on gender issues became known BECAUSE he is against the GOVERNMENT FORCING US TO USE THOSE DARN PRONOUNS. He doesn’t teach people to become total pushovers under the state’s rule but rather explains that there are creative ways to bring about positive changes that aren’t all about the “all-or-nothing” approach. Some people are able to do good things that way.

      I especially like his approach to psychological health: he strongly recommends using Jung’s dream analysis theory in order to get a solid balance between all aspects of your psyche. It’s important work that many could find useful. Finding and maintaining this delicate balance helps you understand where you are the issue instead of blaming others for some of your problems. Many are too quick to lay blame on others when they are doing things that hinder their progress.

      That being said, do I disagree with some of what he says? Of course! Listening to him, you would think that many Corbetteers are martyrs who will end up destroying their lives for nothing. He sounds like a child throwing puerile insults left and right instead of making constructive suggestions to personalities like country leaders and stars. Just like many others, you need to filter out the bad to find the good in what he says. He is also very likely being pushed by the PTSNB in order to have an ‘enemy of the state’ to point a finger at. I would argue that he is being used to promote an agenda. Would Poiliรจvre being elected be the agenda per se? This is likely linked to Trudeau’s ‘conspiracy theorist’ slander of his opponent since Poiliรจvre promotes Bitcoin as a solution to the inflation crisis we are going through. Or would it be to avoid the Tories coming into power? Either way, it smells bad.

      All that to say, I suggest you don’t dismiss him entirely. Take what he says with a grain of salt and you’ll likely find some gems in there.

      • lotusblossom says:

        I would like to add that although I agree that the government robs and murders as much as officially declared criminals, I also think that there are institutions worth keeping. For instance, I think defunding the police is a terrible idea. Could that institution be greatly improved? Of course! However, I use the legal system in order to get justice when it’s appropriate and possible. I haven’t voted in many years, though, and I promote grassroots initiatives in order to bring about positive change.

        I agree.

        Even milk toast people like Stefan Molyneux have value, but the fact that they need to exist is, in itself, a sign of how badly destroyed common sense is. At the end of the day they are not “enemies” as much as they are “Not the REAL FIX” and at best a band aid or a painkiller.

        I keep meeting people IRL who read the Stoic philosophers and use them as a guide. At BEST they are a good cope, but they can never create positive changes (even in their day they could not) and may actively keep people passive and fatalistic .

        “..he strongly recommends using Jungโ€™s dream analysis theory..”

        I used to study psychology but now believe that it is, at its heart, a weapon designed to destroy common sense and heard the sheeple. I would recommended “Degenerate Moderns” by Dr EM Jones as a good source of biographical data on Jung and Freud and why they were bad people that ought not to be followed.

        • lotusblossom says:

          Jung didn’t rationalize misplaced sexual conduct. As a matter of fact, he criticized Freud for just that reason and they parted ways afterwards. I didn’t read Dr. Jones’ book so I have no clue if he has something to say about him, but Jung did a very thorough study of ancient symbolism that predates Classical philosophy by a long run. According to him, libido is far more complex than what Freud believed (or let on).

          • Duck says:

            lotus blossum

            Jung was, however, as much of a predator as Freud.

            While he did not have Freuds jewish thing about being a new Hannibal attacking “Rome” (christendom) he did have a weird Faust kick and the same love of hunting rich clients and gaining wealth from them.

            He may also have been the true instigator of MK-Ultra stuff thru his association with Dulles, at least in the opinion of Chris KNowles over at Secret Sun blog.


            I am sure he had many insights into the human mind (much a good conman would ) …. but looking at his “Red Book” kinda makes me think its the sort of thing a serial killer would create. He was at least less personally disgusting then Reich.

              The links showing Jung’s artwork is a display of the symbolism from ancient religions and mythology.

              As for the ufo psy op, of course it’s very likely that the government is trying to fool us. They’ve been doing that for centuries. However, that doesn’t mean aliens don’t exist. If the government succeeds with their plan, it’s not proof that we are alone in the universe.

            As a person… I would argue that in many ways his kinda thinking is VERY useful as we head into the Post Truth World

            “…Carl Gustav Jung was an insufferable egotist, cruel to his family, a womanizer, with bad table manners to boot. He was a founder of psychoanalysis, but today his teachings have little importance in the treatment of mental illness.
            His writings on flying saucers, astrology and parapsychology read like those of someone on the edges of sanity himself. He is remembered mostly for his psychological autobiography, ”Memories, Dreams, Reflections,” and for terms he used: ”New Age,” ”the Age of Aquarius,” ”archetypes,” ”anima” and ”animus.”…….”


            “…Jung played sadistic pranks on them, setting a firecracker off between a daughter’s legs, rendering her deaf in one ear…” uhhhh…did not know that one. Very Freudian, lol

              ‘Between a daughter’s legs’ could be at knee level, though. It doesn’t say in the genitals, so might not be what you think.

              BTW, he admitted to working on himself a lot because he knew he wasn’t psychologically healthy. Many, many great psychologists were in the same position because treating a patient isn’t the same as healing yourself. It is far easier to solve another person’s issues because of the neutral perspective an outsider can bring. That isn’t news to me.

              Plus, this is the New York Times, so I take it with a large grain of salt…

                He helped a lot of people heal. Staying away from people because they aren’t done with their own healing process means you won’t learn from their insight on what they’ve done to improve themselves.

        He also started giving advice out of his area of expertise – like re bitcoin – which I found odd. Then when he started to talk to muslims – as if he was the person they should listen to.

        I’ve just found him awfully emotional and very strange over the last year or so.

        • lotusblossom says:

          I agree that his approach to changing society from the inside is flawed, since most of the time, it’s the outsiders who make the most lasting changes. However, he stresses the need to fully follow and understand the rules before breaking them because it’s necessary to fully understand the reason why they exist in the first place before deciding which rule to break, how, where and why. I get why he says this since there are some rules that are sincerely valid and should only be broken under very rare and well thought out circumstances.

          What I really like about him is the method of healing he uses. It’s such an understated one, yet so powerful, that I wish it became mainstream. It’ll probably never happen so long as pharmaceutical companies are making big bucks selling dangerous pills.

          As for his recently found 5-year-old whiny self… I agree. WTF? The videos of his lectures in university are so different than the new ones that I’m scratching my head, too. I wonder if it has anything to do with his new eating habits (even Rogan, a die-hard meat-eater, raised an eyebrow at his choice of becoming a carnivore) and his struggle with his previous meds.

      I don’t know who Jordan Peterson is, but he probably said something somebody didn’t like. That usually creates a shit storm, and is enough to be labeled controlled opposition.

      • Duck says:


        TBH while I dont think they are active enemies such people ARE a deliberate distraction and soporific for most people.

        The fact that you can hear ANYONE online is a sign that their personal threat level to the people in power is low.

        People like Peterson have some utility but at the end of the day they (like online nazi’s and most libertarians) can not offer a real solution because the real solution is

        b)Needs community.

    • Tina Louisa says:

      I like Jordan Peterson, he reminds me of my grandparents generation in his common sense approach, asking of basic questions and building things from the foundation. He tells a generation to clean your bedroom first before trying to fix the world and that is a sentiment that needs to be said. That said, I blindly trust or follow no one, not even myself. I always question myself, it changes and it’s constantly growing. You could poll me, or anyone on here and there would be a variety of responses to my “truthfulness” or “trustworthiness”. It doesn’t make me/you any less valuable or authentic. Also, I think it’s very possible for the “elite” to use people for their own ends, as controlled opposition, without enlisting that person per say. Take and use what you like and make it authentic for yourself.

    I subscribed in 2022 and have been going through all of your podcasts since episode 1 (FWIW, Iโ€™m learning so much and am grateful for your brilliant work). Iโ€™d like to do the same with your other content. One feature that I would find helpful is being able to sort from oldest to newest, the way YouTube used to allow us to do. That way I can methodically go through your other content from episode 1 through the most recent without having to search for each episode or clicking โ€œnext pageโ€ until Iโ€™m at the earlier content. I hope that makes sense.

    • SuperMom Belle says:

      I like this suggestion. While it’s not extremely inconvenient to pick a category from the drop-down “audio” menu, it’s a bit cumbersome to navigate a selected series that way. I’d also LOVE to have have more options upon getting results from searched content (for example, sort by date recent/oldest, most relevant/key-word most frequently appearing, etc). A search-by-year (perhaps with a submenu for month) might also be convenient.
      I love the “RECOMMENDED” sections with “Documentaries” and “The Best Of” & I look forward to seeing sections for “Halls of Fame/Shame.”
      Please continue to keep the site as desktop-computer-friendly as possible. Many of your viewers (& probably most members) obviously know the many dangers of wireless tech. I don’t know how many actually use it to access the site, but it is my exclusive way to engage. I could not use wireless even if I wanted to, due to health reasons, and it’s incredibly frustrating when I visit other (“improved” or “updated”) sites, many of which obviously do not even test how the layout will work on a desktop. I’m sure James is highly aware of this, but I just wanted to put it out there (and say, Thank You James, for not pushing me to ever “simply scan this QR code & download the CorbettReport App”). Thank You for that and for all you do!

    New feature:

    Besides “search by tag”
    I would like a keyword-map, where I get a list of all main keywords.
    Videos often talk about 9/11 but few have 9/11 as main topic.
    There could be a separation between “keyword” and “mentioned”.

    Menu Improvements:

    The main menu needs to be redesigned.
    “Videos Articles Audio RSS | Membership Shop About Contact | Login

    When logged in, you don’t need a “login” button/link.
    I often click it even when I am logged in.

    (select a post) <- put under [archive] at bottom of page.

    Audio has submenu, but Videos does not. Articles has one item.
    Just remove them all.
    I don't know the difference between "podcast" and "interview".
    Maybe a main keyword menu-item?
    With topics that you find the most important?

    Comment improvements:

    Instruction of how to make the text prettier.
    bold Italic and more.
    That also needs a preview,
    because I tend to fu.. mess up the spellling or sty
    (Can include a possible word count)

    I often see a small improvement after posting, and
    edit afterwards. So I have to race against the clock
    and can not always make it.

    Search/list my own comments as user.

    “recent comments” can be removed. It does not work well.
    Due to different time-zones and often “under moderation”.
    If you want something like this, I would prefer
    “comments since …” on a separate page.

        On your keyboard next to the shift key on your left you have a left and right arrow. > and <. I had to put them in backwards order for them to show.

        2. Type your bold or Italic text.
        3. End it by repeating step 1, but put in a / in front of the i or b.

          E-mails come in every time, whenever I do not want to look at them.

    1) Make the “Search Bar” REALLLY BIG (and maybe have a red frame so people dont miss it)

    3) Tell how to people to use an RSS feed to grab all the old podcasts.

    4) Leave the Website the way it is now… most modern websites are trash anyway and gobble up masses of RAM. The more features you put in the more things wont work when the standards change.

  6. MilesOdd says:

    Your ‘hard sell’ for subscribing is the most charming hardsell I’ve ever seen. And I wasn’t born yesterday either.

    • cubinche says:

      Copy that, MilesOdd.

      There’s something totally liberating about subscribing for no other reason than to support exceptional content that enhances life and yet which doesn’t need to be subscribed to in order to yield the benefit. Under such circumstances, the ability to subscribe renders one an even more active participant and valuable contributor – even if one never posts so much as a comment. That’s enormously fulfilling… at least it is for me. I’m grateful to the Corbett Report and to James himself for the opportunity to make such small and yet measurably meaningful difference in the fight for human freedom.

      That having been said, there are mouths to feed in the Corbett and West households. To non-subscribers like I myself was for too many years, those mouths aren’t fed by manna from the sky. Subscribing ensures the free flow of vital information found on this website, which is hardly found elsewhere. Consider subscribing. If and when you do you’ll reap the joy of making such valuable contribution for no other reason than you having chosen to make such valuable contribution. My guess is you’ll be surprised at how wonderfully-fulfilling the experience of doing so is.

      Now for my two cents regarding how to improve the website:

      Make it grow fangs and razor-sharp claws that can reach out of computers’ screens to fend off and debilitate those thought-controllers and sociopaths who would threaten peoples’ individual liberties. Once you do that the rest of us may be able to safely stick our heads back in the sand or go play video games – without the need to be vigilant in the defense of freedom.

      Chop-Chop. Get crackin’. LOL

  7. cubinche says:

    FYI: Underneath the [Submit Comment] button there is a character count field that reads “3000” characters left, which doesn’t count down from 3000 as additional characters are typed into the comment field. It’s a minor, tolerable problem, which I can live with if too complicated to solve.

    NOTE: I was able to duplicate this problem on the following browsers: Brave (even with shields down), Firefox and Chrome.

    I wonder if people who speak other languages also find spanish hilarious. Even understanding it I still think it sounds funny.

    • Duck says:

      Everyone should study another language, because even if you cant really speak it properly it makes us re-frame thoughts and think outside of the tool-set of just one language.

      Thats kinda why I hate that when I listen to internet radio half the world appears to listen to trash music in english.

  9. Torus says:

    No new website design tips, but definitely keep the โ€œlatestโ€ or โ€œmost recentโ€ on the landing page. Itโ€™s a must for the work you do.
    I personally like the website layout. I donโ€™t have any trouble.

    A โ€œscroll to bottomโ€ or โ€œjump to endโ€ would be nice in the open threads. When they get hundreds of comments long itโ€™s be nice to zip to the end to post or see the most recent.

  10. simon62 says:

    My impression may be inaccurate but I see JP as a strange mix. His identification of what’s going on with society and young men in particular may be accurate and his solutions may be logical and reasonable but within the good advice there’s a lack of compassionate understanding. To be told at some level you need to wake up and stop feeling sorry for yourself and shape up and get real, seems to lack a perspective of how young men and women have been abandoned by those whose responsibility is create an environment where they are respected as a sovereign individual and an equally valued part of the community.

    The implications of abandoning our children to the surrogates of TV and social media while we busily get on with our lives is something I may have missed JP discussing the consequences of this conditioning on the minds of young people but I’m sure he must have done. Although the idea of adjusting your behaviour into the social norm and become a fully functioning and useful member of a dysfunctional society I am not sure is the solution. Unless I’m completely misrepresenting his general position then he seems more interested in making better what exists, security over freedom. When what exists is a totalitarian state creating so much stress on young people that they see what future is coming and they feel terrified and are traumatised. They are responding accurately to their society and culture. JPs generation and before are the ones that need to sort their shit out and get real. I’m in JPs generation! Peace

    • Duck says:

      “…but within the good advice thereโ€™s a lack of compassionate understanding. …”

      Compassion is kinda dangerous to extend to a lot of folks.

      I dont like being callous but I also do not think its good to jump in and get pulled down by a drowning man.

      They have made their choices or they are too badly damaged to fix unless they have a massive desire to be fixed.
      In the words of the bard….”You cant turn a whore into a lady unless she wants to do it herself” ๐Ÿ™‚

    • lotusblossom says:

      I have never seen a video of JP when he was treating his patients. He seems rough around the edges when he gives lectures. That could be his real personality, or it could be a persona for public speaking. As for fitting into society… I agree. That’s also something I dislike about him. He’s too conformist, all the while telling people that it’s good to break the rules.

  11. GreaterIsrahell says:

    In your video “FLASHBACK: Freeman Fly on Signs, Symbols and Sigils (2010)” I would have liked to have heard something about hand signs.

    One of the men who killed John Wilkes Booth had his hands down, and his index and pinky fingers pointed to the ground.

    The triple six is made if you make a circle with your index finger and thumb while the remaining fingers remain straight, but spread.

    A boy scout salute is very similar. Replace the index finger with the pinky, and hold the three remaining fingers straight next to each other.

    At the same time I do realize that you can only cram so much audio into an hour.

    Everyone should probably be aware by now that the AI voice generation is now openly to the point where it can impersonate people.

    The End of the Internet being useful really is nigh.

    Honestly the Internet is getting to the point that it could probably CONSTRUCT A PERSONAL GURU JUST FOR YOU or make sure you are getting specially tailored podcasts with messages just to fk with your thinking.

    They can create a mental personal playpen to keep you running around forever.

    I’ve been feeling this way for a while but the podcast below makes me think that we are either there or about to be there.


    My belief, same as the guest, is that unless you have a religious outlook (or at least a good grounding in objective morality) you will have ZERO ability to maintain your own thinking patterns or view reality clearly because they will feed you WHAT YOU WANT. (I think they’re already doing that to some extent anyway)

    My advice is BUY LOTS OF BOOKS and MEET REAL PEOPLE because the online world is gonna be skunked pretty soon. Also pray.

    Personally, I like the website as it is.
    Same with the comment section.
    But, I’m old and don’t like too much change.

    I’ll make this note:
    When I want a very broad overview of previous CorbettReport content, I sometimes go to Odysee and scroll the video archive. Lots of images on the page.

    This news kid has Corbett’s works listed going back to Episode 1 2007 on one webpage…
    “Click portrait below to go to James Corbett VIDEO NEWS”

    It would be kind of cool to have a similar list of Corbett articles.

    • mkey says:

      To James Corbett:

      The comment character count is broken. It does not count down, it just stays fixed at 3000 and that probably makes it confusing for people. I did fix this in my CorbettReport script on github. You can check that for my site upgrade suggestions because the script is A host of suggestions rolled up into one configurable script.


      When you upgraded the site template the count issue was fixed but it introduced comment voting. Which kind of was an erruption in itself.

      The template does show its age, but less fluff the better. Fluff detracts from the content.

      But like HRS says, it may be useful to have one page with all the articles and link that on the front page. People could search in it via “find in page”.

    – Able to sort all video by video length and categories. Most of your great documentaries, people have to know they exist to find them. Having categories such as (Documentary, Podcast, SolutionsWatch, ..)

    – Smaller thumbnails to fit more video on the screen. Row and columns

    – Right now, most people click Video on top and either look at a 1000 drop box list or scroll starting with recent content.

    – Contrast colours are good to attract the eye

    A James Evan Pilato Type Tidbit Trivia…

    I recently watched this 1996 movie Happy Gilmore. Corbett would probably appreciate the underlying Canadian Hockey theme, but the movie moves to a Golf tournament in Portland, Oregon. While watching, I caught the nuance of the quote.

    34:34 minute mark of the movie
    Shooter McGavin says:
    “I tell you, the real winner today is the city of Portland. Every time I come here it gets harder to leave. I think you guys put something in the water.”

    (This quote page is wrong. I put the corrected version above.)

    I’m not sure of the current fluoride status in Portland.

        I watched fluoride being put into the water supply in my hometown in 1975.
        It looked like white sugar or salt and it came in bags with a very clear
        and prominent skull and cross bones on it. I can remember thinking that that was odd but of course I was so sure that “they” would never do anything that would harm us. Funny thing was that the way it was done was so open and obvious if one really wanted to observe the operation. In fact it was so open that had I wanted to, I could have walked off with a bag of it with no trouble at all.

          Sodium fluoride was once widely used in the United States for control of larvae and crawling insects in homes, barns, warehouses, and other storage areas. It is highly toxic to all plant and animal life.
          Sodium Fluoride has a variety of uses in industry, chemicals, and pesticides.

          ANIMALS [Historically, animals rarely have cavities.]
          โ€œThe fatal dosage of sodium fluoride is ~5โ€“10 mg/kg in most commonly treated animal species.โ€
          [This is the same fatal dosage for humans.]

          Other QUOTESโ€ฆ
          “Fluoride compounds (eg, sodium fluoride, sodium fluorosilicate, fluorosilicic acid) are added to human drinking water at a concentrations of ~1 mg/L in an effort to reduce dental caries. This recommendation is not universally accepted. Both acute and chronic toxicoses may result from ingestion of fluoridesโ€ฆ

          Key Points
          The benefits of fluoride supplementation balanced with the potential of adverse effects including permanent developmental disease and a lack of an effective treatment for fluoride toxicosis deserve careful consideration.”

            More Stories About Poisoning by Sodium Fluoride

            — Scrambled Eggs โ€“
            Published 13 March 1943 – JAMA (Well respected Scientific Journal)
            The recent accidental ingestion of sodium fluoride at the Oregon State Hospital at Salem, Ore., resulted in the highest morbidity and mortality thus far reported in the medical literature from this particular poison.
            There were 263 cases, of which 47 terminated fatally following a meal of scrambled eggs.
            The identity of the poison was not established until approximately twenty-two hours had elapsed except that preliminary tests performed by Drs. F. R. Menne, N. A. David and H. J. Sears of the University of Oregon Medical School indicated a virulent poison in the stomach of some of the victims and in the scrambled eggs.
            When toxicologic examination revealed the presence of sodium fluoride, it was apparent that roach powder had been placed in the scrambled eggs served at the evening meal. Subsequent investigation disclosed that a patient helper had unwittingly mistaken roach powder for powdered milk and had added approximatelyโ€ฆ.

            JAMA (Respected Scientific Journal)
            January 14, 1933
            Sodium fluoride is widely employed as an insecticide. It is the chief constituent of most “roach powders.” It is dispensed in drug stores, grocery stores and department stores without any indication that it is a deadly poison. Because it is dispensed in containers similar to those used for saline laxatives or baking powder, it is often mistaken for these substances, with disastrous results. Insecticides containing sodium fluoride are commonly stored in medicine cabinets or kitchen cupboards.

            It is apparent that considerable ignorance exists among druggists and laymen in general regarding the toxic properties of sodium fluoride. Many physicians do not appreciate the importance of this problem, largely because of the scant information contained in modern textbooks relative to the toxicology of sodium fluoride. Furthermore, the statements contained in some standard textbooks are incorrect, in the light of present knowledge. The 1923 edition of one widely used textbook on toxicologyโ€ฆ.

            My home town was probably around 10,000 at the time and the water system was rather primitive. Just a little brick building wherein access to the water supply was through an opening in the floor. There was a hopper there where the fluoride was put in and a little stream of it trickled out of the bottom, probably about what would go through a soda straw. There were several bags of the stuff laying there beside the hopper and the place was not locked up or monitored by anyone. The possibilities for mischief, i. e. someone dumping a whole lot of it into the water supply would have been so easy and who would know the difference until. It takes little imagination as to what could have happened since everyone in the town used that water.
            mkey. This was in 1975 and things were quite different from what they are today although I have to admit that the same spirits that are so open and obvious today were just not so open and obvious back them.

    โ€œThe potential for the biosecurity state is perhaps the most chilling of the evils let loose in the world today. And the most informed person to describe the danger is James Corbett. Here he Lays Out the Biosecurity Agenda (corbettreport.com).


    James Corbett discusses where his head is at after all these years of doing what heโ€™s been doing and whatโ€™s most pressing on his mind at the moment. He agrees that the COVID1984 biosecurity state is one of the central problems facing humanity today. The Digital ID system is being implemented in the very near-term and will then be forwarded through social credit scores and CBDCs. James warns against hopium and that although weโ€™ve won some battles, we are not winning the war. He discusses how he views the elite global power structure and their visions of the future such as eugenics, transhumanism, and technocracy. He gives his thoughts on the prospects of future war, how to think about deep politics, as well as solutions.

    What is needed? That people have the wisdom to realize that this evil exists, that they have the courage to meet the challenge of this evil, and they have the means required to resist and finally overcome this evil. The daily routine since my retirement includes a long walk where my thoughts turn into prayers. Here is one that I repeat everyday.

      and whether one describes the “palpable” institutionalized (and multi-generationally programmed) apathetic, selfish, egocentric, fearful and often downright nefarious mentality that is prevalent on this world as “evil” (as in a fundamental aspect/force of the universe we live in as seen through a dualistic lens) or just a set of degenerative, detrimental, toxic and immoral perspectives, behaviors and institutions that have been learned/created and artificially perpetuated/propped up by humans (but are not representative of anything that is intrinsic within humans nor the universe) the solutions are the same.

      That prayer to ask that the Creator offer opportunities for those with an open heart and a moral compass to summon the courage to resist and overcome the shadows and depravity in our midst, it applies and is effective form either perspective on the source of the “evil” behavior.

      The choice of an individual to look within, ask God for guidance (whether through the lens and language of a dogmatic religious belief system or in the unadulterated language of a genuinely willing heart with a clear intent to be of service to the Divine, without any preconceived notions of God) in moving forward in service to Creator and one’s fellow beings, to become a living example of that which is life affirming, regenerative, healing, honest, humble and kind also serves as a solution from either perspective.

      Something as simple as seeing a hateful act or an abuse of an innocent and making the choice to stand up and call it out for what it is, to bring light to that act and do everything in one’s ability (while remaining peaceful, non-violent and guided by love) to ensure the abuse does not continue is also a choice that embodies an important part of the solution as well, and is applicable from either perspective.

      In essence, the choice to become a walking embodiment of the antithesis of “evil” (or degenerative, detrimental, toxic and immoral perspectives, apathetic, selfish, egocentric, fearful and often downright nefarious behaviors and institutions) in each of our actions and in that which we allow to dwell in our heart is the medicine that can heal this world. It means fanning the flickering flame within that was given to each of us by God to become a radiant torch that we can use to make the darkness flee and illuminate the path forward with grace, humility and in service to all our fellow beings.

    Here is a pic of the front cover and inside sleeve of the book:


    I provide links to a couple good interviews with the author in the description section as well (one includes actual raw video footage of the mines).

    I am just now learning about all the other brutal ways that land and the people who live there have been exploited and pillaged as I read this book (it goes into some of the pre-cobalt mining history in the Congo). I suppose the only difference now (as compared to the pillaging of human beings, ivory and other minerals in the past) is that almost every country on Earth is now filled with people using products made that contain Congolese cobalt, so we are all (to varying degrees) in some way likely funding the ongoing degradation of the ecosystems and well being of the people that live there. It is pretty difficult to dodge the lithium ion battery tech when one is trying to operate as part of modern day society, though I am gonna try to the best of my ability in the future.

        I have been really appreciating the excellent list of books available at libgen, thanks again for introducing me to it.

        I found the PDF for another book I just got a hard copy of (Bright Green Lies) and re-uploaded it to archive dot org with some helpful links to the website of the authors and the full movie that is connected to the book for easy access.


        The book uses language that shows that either some of the authors are ignorant/brainwashed about the โ€˜climate change/global warmingโ€™ scam or they are aware that itโ€™s BS but are using it for PR but there is still a great deal of other verifiable and extremely important information in the book. The book very clearly exposes the myth of a “sustainable” industrial city infrastructure and the green washing lies surrounding the current photovoltaic, wind turbine and hydroelectric technologies and larger infrastructures.

        I feel it is worth a read (as long as one keeps in mind that the โ€˜climate changeโ€™/’global warming’ narrative that is sometimes brought up in their material is bogus). That is something I do intend on confronting the authors about.

        In essence, the book is like a bucket of cold water thrown in your face that wakes you up from the comforting delusion that we can sustain industrial civilization (in it’s current expression) while also preserving the wilderness and the biosphere. Thus, I imagine a great many people will do anything they can to avoid reading it. It offers the heartbreaking and unavoidable realization (detailed with comprehensive evidence) that we have to choose, we can either preserve our current way of life (for a limited amount of time) or we can preserve the ecosystems we (and future generations) depend on to survive. Without getting some breakthrough LENR, Molten Salt or quantum vacuum extraction energy technology or something out (past the systemic suppression of the patent office and Murder Incorporated, which I do not think we can realistically rely on happening) we have to either choose preserving life, or preserving our comforts.. there is no middle road.

        I would value hearing your thoughts on the book if you get a chance to take a look.

    I also imagine a fair amount of people on here are not willing to stop buying products made with Cobalt, Lithium, Tungsten and Tantalum so I would value hearing arguments from the perspective of the one that knows the truth about how those minerals are extracted (eg, the detrimental impact on the ecosystems and people that live in places like the Congo) yet also feels that we should continue to fund industries and products that depend on the large scale mining of those minerals.

    RE Terrain Theory vs Germ Theory

    Recently I listen to an interview of an MD who stated that he is convinced that viruses exist and that terrain theory is important – we must consider both. Then today I saw a reference to an article written by “Eugyppius” that explains how the existence of viruses was postulated based on experimental evidence. The link to the article is:


    This article helps support the argument that BOTH germ theory and terrain theory are valid models of reality.

    • Gavinm says:


      Thanks for this.

      Though I generally associate the term “germ theory” to the fraud and fallacious ideas pushed by Lois Pasteur surrounding bacteria (since he never actually saw a virus but rather just theorized about them) I do understand what you are saying.

      While Lois Pasteur may have been a fraud and his ideas about bacteria completely inaccurate (as is exemplified by our current understanding of the beneficial role of LAB, other bacteria and a range of other microorganisms in the human gut lining) I also see that completely dismissing and ignoring anything that has to do with information regarding contagious microorganisms/viral particles (and/or microorganisms/viral particles that are capable of taking on a pathogenic role in some situations) may be a mistake.

      I feel that there is more of what people put under the umbrella of “Terrain Theory” that is factually accurate when compared to that which people put under the umbrella “Germ Theory” but nevertheless I think that there are some aspects of what some refer to as “Germ Theory” that are worth integrating into a more holistic understanding of the human immune system, diseases and the role of various microorganisms in both.

      Thanks again for the comment.

      • robster says:

        Viral particles have never been shown to exist.

        Widening the scope from viruses to micro-organisms is not helpful in the discussion. The only role such organisms play in disease is to help the body heal from it.

    • robster says:

      Yes, that’s what indoctrinated fools will try now to keep distracting from the fact that germ theory is complete nonsense. There is no evidence for viruses, experimental or otherwise.

  37. 2-D Chess Dweller says:

    I got to thinking about the recent Israeli drone attack on a military “workshop” in Isfahan, Iran. If it was the other way around, surely the western media response would have been long and strong.

    While thinking about and composing an article on the topic, I threw in the idea of “worthy vs. unworthy victims”. Then a differentiation of natural disaster versus military attack was prompted by the recent devastating earthquakes in Turkiye and Syria. This leads to a “four-square” response graph characterising western media responses to events across these two axes (military attack or natural disaster vs. worthy or unworthy victims).

    The article concludes by offering this consideration, with a follow up to be published in a few days based on analysis of western media responses to the recent earthquakes.

    You may find the article of interest.

    Dear James,

    A few suggestions in response for your call for suggestions for the site redesign.

    1) Changes should be minimal.

    2) Fonts matter. Do not move to a sans but stay with a serif font for easy of reading.

    3) For material access, you have it: Audio, Video, Articles and Search. I would not touch this, except perhaps allowing a choice of the number of items displayed per page as one goes back in time (10, 20, 50 or something like that).

    4) Do NOT use a multi-column layout for content. These are poison.

    I have two actual suggestions.

    1) Create a “How to/FAQ” page which describes the search functions, and describes the “auto-moderation” comments section. Place this close to the end of the menu bar. This is perhaps a small page with links to the pages which describe the above. Thus, you could add another category of description in the future.

    2) (Vehemently repeats himself) When one clicks on the Login button the cursor should automatically be placed in the email address text box.

    Less is more.

    1. Scroll slider at Recent Comments, scrollbox. Last times there is a lot of comments from agents. Existence of slider would enable sifting through last hundred or so comments easy.

    2. Better search engine Current search engine is just a pain to use, not once I couldn’t found stuff. Something better must exist.

    3. Option to search in comments

    I noticed the thing immediately back in a day and haven’t said anything up until now.

    In last week or so you said many times that nothing is behind a paywall.
    What about your media research?

    You put yourself very high standards I admire, I would love things to stay this way.

    By being observant and adding various keywords, tags, “phrases”, dates, years, etc., a person can find some amazing stuff.
    Ctrl + F is valuable also.

    James (& the CR community),

    Can we create a repository on this site (perhaps a permanent open thread) of claims originally labeled as “conspiracy theory” that ultimately proved to be true?

    In honor of Sy Hersh’s expose on the Nord Stream 2 bombing by the US, I’d like to submit this one:


    Separately, I’m wondering if you (James) have any opinions on Covert Action Magazine? I’ve found a few worthwhile historical pieces there (e.g. on US oil exploration in the middle east pre 90’s Gulf War), but I’m uncertain exactly where they are on the general spectrum of truth/bias/etc. I’d be interested in your thoughts.

      I like that idea, sounds like a fun subject for a podcast episode.

      I can think of about a half dozen things that I said in the past where people called me a tin foil hat wearing idiot, and now those things are admitted to be true and/or are observably, demonstrably and unavoidably shown to be true by subsequent evidence coming to light.

      Hologram technology could play a part, also could just be weird balloons, deepfake videos and fake/psyop news stories but it could also involve manmade electrogravitic physical craft. Not sure what is going down right now with the things they are saying they are shooting at and going to “recover debris from” but I do know that they (the “military industrial complex”) have advanced electrogravitic craft in their arsenal (which could also be deployed to scare the crap out of people and/or do physical damage to objects and individuals).

    This is a thought experiment I have been having for weeks, and I cannot find a satisfactory plan besides the one that John Bush is touting, which doesn’t seem like a long term solution.

    • Gavinm says:


      Thanks for inviting discussion on that topic I think it is a really important one for us to be thinking about, formulating strategies for and taking decisive action on.

      While I like John Bush as a person (he is funny, smart and grounded in compassion) I do not necessarily share all his views (some of which I have heard him express in presentations) with regards to the practicality or realisticness of attempting to stay largely connected to hyper-centralized systems (especially in cities) while also avoiding the reach of the full force of the technocratic control grid and it’s ‘totalitarian tip toe’. He promotes leaning into technology heavily (cryptocurrency etc) and I see some inherent risks in that approach that are lessened in a more low tech approach to opt-out and resist. I have heard John emphasize that he feels it would be wise to get out of cities in general, as that is where the full on digital concentration camp/technocratic tyranny will be rolled out in full force, so I agree with him on that. This is emphasized in his and Derrick Broze’s “Exit and Build” slogan, which is something I acknowledge as wise and endorse. I would have to take a closer look at what he specifically proposed in his “๐ˆ๐ง๐ฌ๐ข๐๐ž/๐Ž๐ฎ๐ญ๐ฌ๐ข๐๐ž ๐’๐ญ๐ซ๐š๐ญ๐ž๐ ๐ฒ” before commenting further on that.

      I have considered what you ask about in bold and come to the conclusion that if we do not get far away from populated centers (to where the brainwashed minions that enforce the edicts of the technocrats are so few and far in between that they do not have the personnel to enforce) we may have to flee our property at some point if we wish to remain true to our ethical compass. I imagine only a small number of people are willing to live totally off grid. I am willing and able but my wife is not too happy about the idea if we do not also have a reasonable homestead set up there.


    • Gavinm says:

      (continued from above..)

      I am under no illusion that by going into the wilderness or (further away from dense population centers) we will be gaining some kind of privacy. Satellite surveillance augmented by AI platforms is pervasive now a days. The purpose of being in the wilderness, off grid and or further away from densely populated areas (for me) is more related to making it as inconvenient and resource demanding as possible for “them” to come after me. I am also better suited to defend my self and my loved ones against small numbers of thugs in a forest setting and/or to engage in low-no tech stealth/foraging tactics if need be (so that is another impetus for me personally). I know that the oligarchs and their government puppets have nasty weapons up their sleeves (whether it be automated drones, lethal robots or satellite weapons systems or something else) and I have no intent to try and build out a defensive capacity against such things (as I think that would be an exercise in futility if their full arsenal was aimed at me) but I do not think that they would bother to go hunting down random people living in the forest when they will have a thousand ’15 minute smart cities’ filled with slaves (and inevitably a fair amount of city dwelling rebels attempting to fight and sabotage their systems from within) to manage. In essence, I do not think the people living away from populated centers in close connection to the Earth will be on their radar for the most part.

      For me, when I observe the patterns of history closely, I see that oligarchic, imperialistic and parasitic empires (such as the one we live in the midst of now) have a limited half-life. They hyper-consolidate material wealth and resources to build their mansions, castles, pentagons and cities and then after pillaging the Earth through mining and degenerative agricultural practices for a few centuries or so, these empires implode. So I choose a path to create a better world for future generations that is not so much related to fighting or changing the existing system, but rather spending my time and energy taking action to starve it, accelerate its inevitable collapse and simultaneously plant the seeds for something more honorable, regenerative, humble and compassion based to grow in its place. I do this in the hopes that when the time is right and their towering top heavy world eating machine comes crashing down, I can help those new ways of living to set down roots.

      Perhaps it will not come to that and their tyrannical technocratic plans (and/or large portions of their oligarchic empire) will implode or be hindered in some unforeseen way before they go full on 1984/Minority Report/Elysium/The Giver mode out in the open.

      Let us pray that will be the case and then all our hypothetical concerns discussed here will be a moot point and our efforts to live more closely connected to the land will just serve to improve our quality of life (rather than serve as a desperate means for survival and remaining true to ourselves in the face of tyranny).

      I will contemplate what you have asked about further and come back to this.

      Thanks for the comment.

      • jo-ann says:

        Thank you for your thoughts. I already live in a rural community (surrounded by glyphosate-laden corn fields and wooded hills) but wonder how one pays for utility services and property taxes once the CBDC system is mandatory. In my state, if you do not pay property and school taxes, the county takes your home and auctions it off, keeping the profit. None for the home-owner! I have no debts other than the recurring electric, ISP, phone, and water bills. Because it’s so rural, I don’t know if there are enough folks here to make peer-to-peer networking viable. One solution would be to rent an apartment or home where the landlord accepts other forms of payment, such as precious metals, but here in New York State, these are not considered money so not sure how much trouble that would be.

        • jo-ann says:

          Perhaps a legal Trust would work if non-monetary assets, such as real estate, can be covered.

        • jo-ann says:

          This mental exercise (how to remain in one’s home while rejecting CBCDs) might be pointless, after all. If there is a bank bail-in and folks are given survival-level universal basic income, there is slim chance of home ownership and maintenance for the common folks anyway. Historically under collectivism, everyone, including farmers, lost their land and other property.

          Meanwhile, disasters and hot wars are just around the corner. Worry not about the future, just decide how you plan to face each scenario with a level head.

    I live within a couple hundred miles of that mess and did not hear about it till a few minutes ago so have not been tracking the wind patterns and storm systems since it happened.

    Judging by prevailing wind, we will likely not see much of it, but i imagine Lake Erie will be even more toxic than it already was now..

I am gonna have to look into how they filter it and do water tests before I do any irrigating of the garden this summer.

        Thanks Steve, looks like the wind is going the opposite of the usual and heading right towards us (from where the chemical dump/burning took place) right now.

        Gonna have to test the soil before I harvest any perennial spring crops or put crops in this spring. Thankfully we have plenty of fermented preserves, canned crops and freeze dried crops from last year to hold us over until I am certain the soil and water are not contaminated.

        This whole mess just drives home how true and relevant much of the material in that “Bright Green Lies” book I have been reading is. Have you read any of it?

        I appreciate you taking the time to comment.

    • HyperSimian says:

      The Ohio River doesn’t flow into Lake Erie. The river flows South West along lower state border of Ohio then dumps into the Mississippi then into the Gulf of Mexico. If I lived 50 miles either way from that catastrophe along the Ohio River, I wouldn’t drink the water for a long time. The toxic cloud is supposedly traveling away from Lake Erie and more towards New England

      • Gavinm says:


        I appreciate the comment, yes I am aware of that, my concern would be the fallout from the airborne toxins nucleating rain drops that fall on the Lake Erie side of the water shed line http://cityofbarberton.com/ImageRepository/Document?documentID=363 just north of where the incident took place.

        I`ll be saying a prayer for all those south of us on the Ohio River and Mississippi though as they will inevitably be seeing the effects of this for a very long time (with these dioxin compounds being taken up by critters and brought inland, and moving up the food chain into larger animals).

        • HyperSimian says:

          Ya I see what your saying.

          • Gavinm says:


            I will do that.

            I am also doing some preliminary research on the viability of bioremediation (bioaugmentation, biostimulation, mycoremediation and phytoremediation) of dioxin contaminated soils and also researching what foods help with reducing the absorption and enhancing excretion of dioxin from the human body.

            I am seeing some promising data on both fronts. I am especially encouraged to find that a great many of the bacterium that have been studied for their ability to denature and dissolve dioxin are species that exist in thermophilic compost (and/or “compost tea”)

            Here is a table from one of the studies listing a number of bacteria species I see regularly in my work with compost sample microscopy. https://www.mdpi.com/2305-6304/10/6/278#table_body_display_toxics-10-00278-t004

            In essence, this indicates that adding a good amount of a well made ‘hot compost’ (and mixing it in) should be able to remediate dioxin contaminated soils effectively and make the soil safe for growing food in again.

            I`ll post the list of foods that help with detox once I have cross referenced the data I have so far.

      Gavin, thank you for putting this together. While I am not in the affected area, my thoughts are with those who are.

      I am also feeling the increasing burden of anger over being involved with an industry that is just as prone to cover up such catastrophes to the eco systems.

      While I am trying to increase integrity and reliability with my daily efforts, it is increasingly and more readily obvious that these poeple just do not care. They talk like they do, but talk is cheap and actions talk a lot louder than words.

      The entire enterprise is riddled with incopetence and sordid lack of care. Egoism and petty politics are the norm.

      I am constantly reminded of Atlas Shrugged and its central topic of starving the system through abandonment.

      • Gavinm says:


        It’s the least I can do for my fellow humans and fellow non-human beings on the Earth given all the endless gifts I receive in this life. Being capable of formulating scalable solutions for healing, regeneration and increased collective resilience (and putting them into action) is the whole reason I spend countless hours gathering all the knowledge, data and experience related to what I shared above. Identifying, synthesizing, distilling and experimenting with those types of knowledge was one of the gifts I feel I was given in this life so that I could reciprocate all the gifts my fellow beings share with me.

        I also feel the frustration and anger, part of it arises when I look in the mirror to take account for my own involvement in activities and giving my energy (money) to industries that are involved in perpetuating the depravity and ecological devastation. Another part of it arises when I look out into this world seeing humans so lost in the addictive lies of separation, ego, anthropocentrism and materialism that they have no compassion for their fellow beings.

        I have similar experiences with many I engage with to what you describe. Those that are truly willing to align their actions with a perspective that sees all our fellow beings with reverence and treats them with the same respect we would afford to our loved ones are few and far between. Many speak of those perspectives, but their words are nothing more than a linguistic veneer for their true priorities are illuminated in their actions.

        Many claim to care about “sustainability” but when one takes a closer look a their driving motivations, it becomes clear that their priority is desperately finding a way to perpetuate their comfortable / high tech quick fix way of living (at any cost) and not the protection, preservation nor regeneration of the biosphere/wilderness. Many speak words about living “green”, when in fact they walk the ‘charred, burnt and dead path’ described in the 7th fire prophesy.

        This quote speaks to the true nature of much of the so called “sustainable” movements/mentalities and the thinking of many modern day self described “environmentalists” https://archive.org/details/brightgreenliesQuote

      • Gavinm says:

        Despite the disheartening behavior of billions of confused, lost and egocentric human beings, I draw hope and inspiration from observing the irrepressible regenerative capacity of the living Earth.

        I strive to further align my own daily actions with her regenerative capacity and hone where I give my energy to fully reflect my acknowledgement of the sacredness of all life.

        I choose to have faith that many of those who choose a path that is devoted to and grounded in love, perpetual learning, humility, compassion having the courage to strive to protect those that cannot protect themselves, giving a voice to those that cannot speak for themselves and taking steps to embody that which one would like to see manifest on this world for future generations will be guided through the storm ahead to find a fertile place to plant their seeds for a new way of living to set down roots when the time is right.

        And when my awareness of the seemingly endless ways in which humans are wreaking havoc and scheming about how to dominate, enslave and kill each other starts to get to me and my faith wavers I take a step back to look at this life from the the more holistic perspective of my soul.

        From the perspective of my spirit I remember that there is beauty and meaning to be found in impermanence. From that knowing, whether or not my efforts in this life send out clearly observable multi-generational ripple effects or not becomes irrelevant. After all, within a broader cosmic cycle, the inevitable natural result for this world will be end of all life on Earth. Planets only live as long as their stars burn, and eventually our sun’s life will come to an end as well, at which point all that ever was created by humans on this Earth will eventually be turned back into the stardust from once it came.

        Does that inevitability make living a life where one chooses to be creative, kind, courageous, hopeful and curious any less meaningful?

        In the end, whether its 1 more day, a couple years or a 100, it always comes down to the question:

        How do I want to spend the time I have left on this Earth?

        Does planting a seed in the Earth and tending it to grow, providing poetry for the senses, food for pollinators and nourishment for the soul have any less value because of the impermanence of that individual plant only living for a single season?

        Does the impermanence of this man’s art make it any less beautiful or worthwhile in creating? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEpz8Z2BMAc

        Do the fleeting expressions of form and color in a sunrise or a sunset make it any less beautiful or worth being present and aware to cherish and appreciate?

        Asking myself these questions allows me to regenerate the faith, hope and sense of purpose in my heart and mind despite the corrosive onslaught of a world full of humans that have lost their way.

      Researcher and author Paul Dohse has dedicated 20+ years towards studying Churchโ„ข orthodoxy (going all the way back to Augustine, Luther and Calvin) and documenting its subsequent sordid behaviors, particularly contemporary church celebrities and their abysmal, loveless institutions. I appreciated his take on Ashbury:

      “With all the churches and all of the different denominations that supposedly set them apart, they all share common tenets that are problematic and antithetical to primary Bible principles.

      “First, churchโ„ข defines Godโ€™s ekklesia as an authoritative institution rather than the literal family of God functioning like a family. Institutions are driven by authority, and not the cooperation of various members that together contribute to the functioning of a body. The homeostasis of a body is determined by the health of each member and its cooperation with the other members. The health of an institution depends on obedience to authority as truth.

      “Secondly, churchโ„ข, as an institution, limits worship to a place and time, instead of being defined as oneโ€™s whole life. At Asbury, time was tossed out of the window, but notice how this supposed revival was once again, limited to a place, with the focus being, ‘standing room only.’

      “Thirdly, this ‘revival,’ per the usual, isnโ€™t defined by positive acts of love, but rather ‘brokenness’ and ‘repentance,’ leading to joyful singing (‘worship’), which has been the primary focus of the church for more than 500 years (‘confessionalism’). This is actually the common church doctrine of mortification and vivification, which is common in all forms of church to one degree or another. Howโ€™s it workinโ€™ for ya?”

        Having not personally experienced what is happening in Asbury, I can only rely upon what I hear and read from others.
        But Iโ€™m very aware that everyone reporting on it is guided and motivated by their own personal prejudices and opinions.
        So Iโ€™m in no position to judge the โ€œvalidityโ€ of the โ€œsupposedโ€ revival.
        However, I am confident that the Holy Spirit of God is fully capable of using this event to glorify Himself and bring some to the knowledge of their desperate need of salvation through the blood of Christ Jesus.

        โ€œWhat we are seeing at Asbury is connected to what God has done before. He is calling His people to holy living and to perfect love. โ€œLet love be without hypocrisyโ€โ€”that was the truth from Romans 12:9 that compelled twenty students, under the influence of the Holy Spirit, to stay and pray. It was a simple message without pretense. It was not โ€œpowerful pulpiteering.โ€ It was Godโ€™s eternal truth being grasped and reclaimed by His people. And it was the magnetism of Godโ€™s love that drew me to Wilmore. It was Godโ€™s love that I felt as I sat in that chapel for nearly nine hours with brothers and sisters from countless different backgrounds. This love continues drawing together people from many traditions, bringing them back to their roots, and reminding us all that what unites us is greater than what divides us. This is not some ecumenical โ€œcheck your beliefs at the doorโ€ gathering. Weโ€™re not pretending that we donโ€™t have differences. But we are all connecting to the same Spirit, the Holy Spirit, who witnesses to Jesus.

        True revival is a return to the root. It is a recovery of the heart of God revealed in Christ, and a move towards the fulfillment of Jesusโ€™ prayer for His people, โ€œthat they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent meโ€ (John 17:21). May God cause this fire to spread.โ€

          Indeed, people do tend to see what they want to see. All I can say is “buyer, beware”. Given the article entitled “A Great Collegiate Awakening — it’s Coming” was published January 25, 2023 (and the suspect groups and personalities involved in what is very likely a contrived event), I am nauseated at the gall of these charlatans and saddened by the gullibility of sincere believers.

              I realize you’ve re-discovered the joy of your salvation, and for that I honestly rejoice with you. But a lot happened (and continues to happen) in churchianity the decades you were out of touch – corruption, fraud, sexual and spiritual abuse galore. With the advent of the internet, people from all manner of denominations were able to research, report and share their horrific stories. Of these survivors of spiritual tyranny very few people bothered to venture beyond the sensational blog headlines and ask why (hint: it’s the doctrine); for years here I’ve mentioned and quoted church historian John Immel and today I linked to Paul Dohse’s blog: they’ve done all the heavy lifting for anyone who cares to learn.

              My trust in prayer and the Holy Spirit is far removed from all things coming out of these institutions.

              • Steve Smith says:

                Thanks for clarifying. I get what youโ€™re saying. Honestly.

                But to be clear, I was not out of touch or insulated from the hypocrisy of the the so-called spiritual or nationalistic authorities. Ever. I was living in the world and much too well aquatinted with the fallen aspects of human nature. Especially my own.

                Iโ€™m not a devotee to any human institution. Iโ€™ve not re-discovered the joy of my salvation. I donโ€™t feel much joy. Yet.
                I am more aware of and discouraged by the seemingly endless amount of almost unfathomable evil that permeates life on this world and has for our history.

                But I have discovered a novel sense of shalom in itโ€™s truest sense, that perhaps I was too young and naive to have noticed and experienced earlier in my life.

                Iโ€™m finding that it is easier lately to trust God.
                Iโ€™m pretty sure that since His body consists of fallible people from every imaginable background, and has for two thousand years despite being made of fallen sinners. That God is able to work His will with whatever tools He chooses. He is still using His chosen people and fulfilling covenants made with Abraham Isaac and Jacob.
                If He can use a cantankerous people like the Jews for eons. Then He can use a group of fallen people of diverse doctrine and beliefs to bring some to salvation through a university in Kentucky.

                I am going to give this, hopefully true working of the Holy Spirit the benefit of the doubt. At least until I see some evil come from it or until Iโ€™m convicted by the Spirit not to.

              • Steve Smith says:

                The words of Joseph to his brothers keep echoing in my mind. Their motives for selling their brother into slavery were evil but God was able to use even that for the purpose of fulfilling His will.

                I donโ€™t feel qualified to question how or if God works in the world much anymore. And frankly its kind of a relief to let go of burdens that I canโ€™t carry anyway.

                But then I am a great respecter of Chuck Smith. So what would you expect? ๐Ÿ™‚

              • pearl says:

                Well, one doesn’t have to be a card-carrying member of a brick-and-mortar institution when listening to their sermons daily and reading their material does an equally (if not more thorough) job of stripping a believer of joy and confidence in his new nature via the new birth.

                I can live with fallible people, but I have no tolerance for wicked, lying ones. Protestantism makes no distinction between the two: “salvation”, according to Orthodoxy (see Luther and Calvin) on which the entirety of Protestantism is built, is merely a greater understanding of what low-life worms all of humanity really is and the beginning of the race of faith which is not even certain – it’s called progressive justification; even after “salvation”, there is nothing good in the “Christian” and never will be, so don’t even try to do “good works” because they’re all just filthy rags in his sight – only Jesus can do them through you, but only when you’ve come to the end of yourself (and trust me, churchโ„ข is most qualified to amputate the very body of Christ). It’s a false gospel, plain and simple.

    (suggesting people should go to some government website at the end or a pharmacist implying those two places are the only sources of info can trust to get “answers”)

    They keep coming out with new ones, if you go to the government youtube channel that posted the video linked above you will see the full length propaganda ads (where the focus at the beginning is on random hypochondriac stuff pink eye or eczema concerns etc) but judging from the way they focus on telling people not to go down the so called โ€œinternet rabbit holeโ€ and then suggest that a pharmacist or government website is the only source of truth one can trust, I have a feeling they will eventually expand these types of propaganda segments to target specific issues of more importance ( I imagine you can guess what).

    Not sure if this will turn out to be anything, but posting it just incase anyone on here lives near where these trains are in Cali


    “Miles of train cars full of flammable liquids just happen to be โ€˜poisedโ€™ inside the heartland of one of Americaโ€™s biggest sources of nuts (almonds, walnuts) and thereโ€™s also lots of cattle and pristine ranch land there.

          I agree its psychological warfare, but as a counter point to think about would you not say that if a guy has a deadly highly contagious disease he ought to be kept from spreading it?

          We all know now that coof was a psy-op, but honestly, if some guy decided to walk around coughing on people when he had the flu or a dude with AIDS thought it was funny to do unprotected sex there IS kinda a case that they need to be forcibly isolated.

          Its that point in the rule of law when you reach “the Exception” and at that point (as it says in “The Populist Delusion” IIRC) that you need to make sure the decider of exceptions is your freind and not your enemy

          • Gavinm says:


            No, I would not say that in the hypothetical situation you proposed that “if a guy has a deadly highly contagious disease he ought to be kept from spreading it”.

            You go from a hypothetical about a guy with a disease and then pull out a bunch of silly red herring tactics and describe extreme situations involving a guy that “thought it was funny to do unprotected sex”.

            Snatching people off the streets with groups of armed thugs and hazmat gestapo because some mandatory cell phone surveillance app (contact tracing/Digital ID) says you were near another person that supposedly had a viral infection is not the same as some person having unprotected sex with people knowing he has some STD.

            Also, if people choose to consent to have sex with another adult, and they do not know the person well enough to trust them, and/or do not use protection, that is their own problem, not the state’s.

            Your assertion about some weird extreme scenario that you feel justifies forcible isolation of human beings by armed thugs with badges arises from a combination of irrational fears, misplaced trust in inherently corrupt (and increasingly corruptible) institutions and your irrational as well as immoral belief that other people are responsible for your health.

            If other people are respecting your space, there is no possible moral justification you can convince me of that would make using violent coercion ethical.

            When you cheer and hope for the violent mechanisms of statism to be weaponized against a subset of the population which is convenient to placate and appease your fears in the now, you grease the slippery slope to tyranny where those same violent mechanisms will be weaponized against you when your presence becomes inconvenient to the state’s goals.

    I attempted to warn people about large scale “Green Totalitarianism”, ‘Green Colonialism’ and ecological devastation that is planned for northern Ontario and Quebec (via lithium and cobalt mining projects) and I had the “fact checker” AI bots unleashed on my post.


    Big tech was onto the post tryna “fact check” it within minutes of posting. It says a lot about who is pushing forward the so called “Bright Green Lies” and if you take a look at their bs fact check article it admits the lithium leaching fields and industry totally destroy ecosystems and produce toxic substances that kill people and wildlife, but then it splits hairs and says “we’re not so sure about how fast it kills birds specifically though”. What a load of greenwashing nonsense.

    Letโ€™s be honest and realistic folks:

    The birds LOVE these lithium leach ponds, they frolic and play in them all day long with no ill effects whatsoever.

    And you know, the only thing that matters here is the birds. Never mind the strip mining, never mind the mountain top removal, never mind the runoff and what happens to the ground waterโ€ฆ All that matters is that there is no evidence that birds were hurt in the making of the photograph linked above.

    Also, for those of you that live in Ontario or Quebec you may want to scroll down into the description section underneath the picture(s) linked below to read about what they have planned for the James Bay/Lake Superior region.. it is not good.

    Our corrupt corporation captured government is helping to initiate large projects to pillage the lands of indigenous peoples (Cree of Eeyou Istchee, the Shakopaatikoong peoples of the Slate Falls first nation and the Waabitigweyaang peoples of Sandy Lake, among others ) and the body of Mother Earth in new Cobalt, Tantalum and Lithium mines in northern Ontario and Quebec.

    I have been reaching out to the Indigenous leaders in northern Ontario but so far the only two that got back to me told me that the mining companies had sent in teams of people to their town hall meetings and convinced most of the people in their community how beneficial the mines were going to be for them financially, sadly, this seems to have convinced many of them to lay down, take the money and not fight this. I am not gonna give up though.

    I have compiled the following intel for anyone that lives in northern Ontario, Quebec, near any of the Great Lakes and also for anyone that cares about the Boreal Forest.

    The pictures I uploaded here https://archive.org/details/blood4lithiumborealforestpillaging show a couple of the areas that have been purchased by mining corporations and what they intend on doing with that land starting this year.

    The Boreal Forest is being assaulted even now in northern Ontario and Quebec but what they plan on doing starting this year and going forward is truly horrifying.

    Over 217,000 Hectares of forest, lakes and rivers have been purchased by lithium mining corporations that intend to strip mine in northern Ontario and Quebec (I provide a breakdown of which companies have purchased what land below).

    Hard rock lithium mining involves deforestation, draining lakes and rivers, blowing the land into pieces with explosives, carving deep gashes into the Earth with giant machines, using truckloads of industrial solvents like sulfuric acid (resulting in water contamination with toxic sludge) dragging that processed rubble to processing facilities with fleets of heavy machinery then processing the ore with extremely high energy furnaces using another slew of toxic chemicals (which further contaminate the water table, lakes, rivers and ocean elsewhere).

    To extract one ton of lithium, you need to contaminate approximately 500,000 gallons of water. Lithium mining also destroys the soil structure and leads to unsustainable water table reduction. In the end, it depletes water resources, leaving the land too dry and exposing ecosystems to the risk of extinction.

    The long term results are water loss, ground destabilization, biodiversity loss, increased salinity of rivers, contaminated soil, massive PM 2.5 emissions and toxic waste. Some of the most common lithium mining wastes are sulfuric acid discharge and the radioactive uranium byproduct (which leaches into the ground water, streams, rivers and lakes). They can cause various forms of cancer and diseases. The mining also presents other serious problems like large amounts of lime and magnesium wastes.

    As Lithium extraction causes surface water contamination, it also destroys other water sources. So, itโ€™s also responsible for the creation of toxic rain. The water cycle largely depends on the limited forests. The trees extract underground water and release it into the atmosphere for this process to continue. Therefore, lithium mining hinders the water cycle from providing adequate rainfall in the affected areas. The impacts are severe. The long term result will be increased regional droughts, soil erosion and the risk of desertification.


    • Gavinm says:

      (continued from above..)

      Lithium miners cut down trees and remove all other life forms from their targeted mining areas to eliminate obstructions.

      Strip mining and deforestation is not something that can be undone. It means the decimation of ancient diverse ecosystems, the poisoning of the sacred waters and extinction of species and so there is nothing “sustainable”, “renewable” or “green” about it.

      This is not a comprehensive list, there are many more mines planned for the areas listed above (and all over Canada in the Boreal Forest zone). I just got emotionally exhausted after spending half a day reading the lithium mining company’s press releases where they were bragging about having rights to begin blasting the land to pieces soon for profit (and bragging about having paid off the locals and having made them sign binding contracts so they cannot complain about environmental/health damages in future years) so I had to stop researching for today.

      The boreal forest is teeming with life (containing about two thirds of Canada’s 140 000 species of plants, animals, and micro-organisms.) To describe it, let’s begin with the trees that make up the forest canopy. There are about 20 species of them (including but not limited to Spruce, fir, pine, and tamarack, trembling aspen, balsam poplar, birch and more). The boreal plays a critical role in how the planet breathes through the process of photosynthesis. By extension, it also shapes the composition of the atmosphere, which today includes maintaining 21 percent of the life supporting concentrations of oxygen in our atmosphere.

      The boreal forest shelters more than 85 species of mammals, including some of the largest and most majesticโ€”wood bison, elk, moose, woodland caribou, grizzly and black bears, and wolvesโ€”and smaller species, such as beavers, snowshoe hares, Canada lynx, red squirrels, lemmings, and voles.

      Nearly half of the birds in North America rely on the boreal forest at some time during the year. It is estimated that at least 3 billion landbirds, water birds, and shorebirds breed in the boreal forest each year, representing more than 300 species. Another 300 million birds, including several species of shorebirds, swans, and geese, breed farther north and travel through the boreal forest during migration. It is estimated that 32 000 insect species inhabit Canada’s boreal forest, although about one third of these species have yet to be described. Canada’s boreal forest is home to about 130 species of fish (including minnows, stickleback and Larger species such as including walleye, northern pike, lake trout, Arctic grayling, yellow perch, brook trout, whitefish and burbot).

      In order to illustrate the potential for catastrophic harm to ecosystems and human health that these mines pose I present a cautionary tale: The Liqi River was once full of fish: Almost none are left. Chemical spills from the Ganzizhou Rongda lithium mine have killed many. โ€œThe whole river stank, and it was full of dead yaks and dead fish,โ€ said one villager.: โ€œMassesโ€ of dead fish covered the river. The people got the mine shut down three times, only to have the government reopen it. ( for more info : https://tibetnature.net/en/lichu-river-poisoned-case-minyak-lhagang-lithium-mine-protest/?fbclid=IwAR2ulyVpJ3DR3tYOwX6wW4MkZy1elR6bjNpS03B4f4jF32LcAjdNvekjU0c )

      (continued from above..)

      ..One of the elders said, โ€œOld people, we see the mines and we cry. What are the future generations going to do? How are they going to survive? โ€. A local activist surveyed people in the area. Even if mining companies split the profits and promised to repair the land after the mines are exhausted, the Tibetans wanted no part of it. โ€œGod is in the mountains and the rivers, these are the places that spirits live,โ€ he explained.โ€ โ€œsustainable developmentโ€ technology (Lithium battery tech) offers everything: every luxury, every whim, available at the touch of a โ€˜carbon-freeโ€™ button. But the world that these technologies provide will be a rotting, desecrated, and, finally, dead world if we let them continue on their crusade to turn the living world into dead things, for profit and to perpetuate our obscene technologically addicted western โ€œcivilized societyโ€.

      In the concentrations extracted via industrial mining operations, lithium is harmful to living beings. It interferes with sperm viability, causes birth defects, memory problems, kidney failure, movement disorders, and so on. Other materials in an electric-car battery can be even more harmful than lithium, with nickel and cobalt electrodes being the most destructive component.

      As I covered in a past comment, about half of the cobalt used in lithium batteries comes from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where 40,000 children as young as four are essentially enslaved in mines, carrying backbreaking loads in conditions of intense heat, with no safety equipment, under abusive managers and guards, for a wage of a dollar a day.

      Here in Canada, we may end up paying our cobalt miners more money and they may be wearing steel toes and hard hats, but the impacts on the ecosystem, the lakes, rivers and future generations will be just as devastating.

      Thereโ€™s no circumventing the fact that these energy-storage technologies are fundamentally destructive. And they’re dependent on a global supply chain and advanced manufacturing technologies that, themselves, are fundamentally destructive. Machines making machines making machines; and while more and more hyperbolic “green” headlines are written, the planet is being murdered so we can have fun playing on i-pads and e-scooters.

      Next on the hit list for corporate pillaging in the name of “sustainable development” is the Boreal Forest of Canada.

      As described above, our corrupt corporation captured government is helping to initiate large projects to pillage the lands of indigenous peoples (Cree of Eeyou Istchee, the Shakopaatikoong peoples of the Slate Falls first nation and the Waabitigweyaang peoples of Sandy Lake, among others ) and the body of Mother Earth in new Lithium (cobalt and tantalum) mines in northern Ontario and Quebec.

      I have been reaching out to the Indigenous leaders in northern Ontario but so far the only two that got back to me told me that the mining companies had sent in teams of people to their town hall meetings and convinced most of the people in their community how beneficial the mines were going to be for them financially, sadly, this seems to have convinced many of them to lay down, take the money and not fight this. I am not gonna give up though..

      Given the nature of open pit mining, lithium leeching ponds and lithium refining, the inevitable result will be large scale poisoning of the water table and the ocean in James bay, contamination of the great lakes (through lake Superior, moving downstream into all the other great lakes), deforestation and genocide of local wildlife.

      These corporations intend to clear cut the boreal forest, annihilating the little bit of remaining habitat that exists in Ontario for the moose, caribou, the lynx, bears, the mountain lion, wolves, fox, bobcats, eagles, hawks and countless other winged and four legged beings.

      The fish in the lakes, the whales and countless other beings in James bay, they will all be decimated by these projects.

      These corporations appear to be moving in fast and as quiet as possible (paying off locals with bribes along the way and getting them to sign binding agreements) to avoid local and environmentalist resistance.

      These projects will mean we trade blood for lithium so we can have fun i-pads and electric cars to play with. We will be trading the ancient beauty and majesty of the Boreal forest and all it’s inhabitants for smart phones and tesla cars. I can’t help but ask myself this question… Is it really worth it?

      Those that wish to walk a path guided by any kind of honest moral compass (including but not limited to the permaculture ethical imperative of People Care-Earth Care-Future Care) are going to have to make some hard choices in the coming years if we want our actions to continue to align with the principles we espouse and claim to live by.

        Excellent post, Gavin! A truly excellent post with excellent reporting.

        Much to the NY Times’ credit – which gets its fair share of vilification here on TCR – it did happen to publish an excellent and important opinion piece a few days ago:


        The writer’s arguments are very dire, warning of the irreversible, deleterious and caustic effects that mining will have on the sensitive ecosystem of the beloved and fabled Okefenokee Swamp, and mirrors precisely your own warning which is eye-opening by the shear scope of the massive mining plans you’re exposing!

        Just the other week I read a similar article or opinion piece by those concerned on the same subject of a mining company seeking rare earth metals whose potential future operation threatens yet another pristine and ancient ecosystem in Patagonia, if I remember correctly. And, then, as a matter of course, we read of companies planning to scour the ocean beds for rare metals, which will undoubtedly destroy to untold levels the quality of marine habitats.

        How is this problem of the future health of the earth, itself, going to be resolved? What is the solution to halting this destruction?

        Dare I ask, can this problem be addressed in next week’s “Solution Watch”?

        How do we foundation Thoreau’s castle in the sky in a place that’s actually safe?

        I was literally contemplating before seeing your above posts, Gavin, thinking of the argument that it’s 2070, and the children or grandchildren of those who were “solution watched”, who thought they were solving their little individual problems with the world by running as far away as possible into the woods, hills and valleys (e.g. conscious agora eco-villages), are now faced with the prospect of some mining company finally coming to their neck of the woods, with the fate of their clean, and once far removed environment now threatened with destruction. What will be their prospects, then? Where are these children of children going to up and go to in the year 2070, or 2100, or 2150?

        Do you get my drift?

        My argument is this: What is espoused on the Solution Watch podcasts are perhaps fine for the individual or clusters of like-minded individuals (community), for the time being. Developing permaculture and living off the land, great. But, to call that a “solution”, it’s extremely limited parameters really need to be called into question.

        In terms of actually trying to find a way to confront and solve the world’s problems, I find Solutions Watch podcast as it’s labeled, to be a complete and utter misnomer.

          Thanks for reading and responding to the info I shared on the uncomfortable truths relating to lithium (cobalt and tantalum) mining in Ontario. This type of information is typically unwelcomed in most circles (especially those circles that involve computers/smart devices as a means to connect) and this inevitably results in shunning/crickets. Then on other platforms there is the Big Tech shadow banning, downlisting/blacklisting weaponized AI aspect too (which feeds into the first one creating a sort of obscuring feedback loop) so I appreciate your engagement and your taking the time to share your thoughts.

          Thanks for shining a light on the situation in the Okefenokee Swamp, Patagonia and with the proposed ocean floor mining.

          You asked “How is this problem of the future health of the earth, itself, going to be resolved? What is the solution to halting this destruction?”

          That is a very important question. It is likely that the answer(s) I have will not be the definitive and comforting answer(s) some may prefer.

          Here is my worst case scenario assessment given what I know and what I have learned about history:

          Given the tremendous momentum of the socio-economic order, the hyper-consolidated, fine tuned oligarchic profiteering operations, the millions (perhaps billions) of every day people that have adopted an anthropocentric worldview, the extremely effective and pervasive mechanisms of propaganda and brainwashing, the systemically corrupted and captured judicial, political and law enforcement systems (and the lengths these above described forces will do to in order to maintain the status quo and perpetually expand their extractive, parasitic and humanocentric empires/institutions) there very well may be nothing you or I (or anyone else reading this) cam do to comprehensively halt the ecocide, mass destruction of the wilderness and the transformation of that which is living, into that which is dead, for profit.

          As I outlined in this article https://gavinmounsey.substack.com/p/the-rise-of-anthropocentrism-bright what we are witnessing now all around us is just the leading edge of the sword in a war that humans began waging on nature centuries (in fact, in many cases millennia) ago. The faces and names of those wielding that sword may have changed slightly, but the mentality and momentum behind it have only increased in their intensity in recent decades. Instead of soldiers mass murdering villages and slaughtering millions of buffalo so they can steal land and then extract ‘resources’ from the land, we now have a corrupt judicial system and corporation/bankster captured government militarizing the police and unleashing their propaganda tools to pacify the resistance so the bulldozers and refineries can move in to turn the living Earth into dead products (which people will then throw in a big garbage heap a few years later).


        • Gavinm says:

          (continued from above..)

          Even in the early 90-s (before the internet) this method of perpetuating the pillaging and corporate profiteering was very effective. My grandparents (restaurant owners and artists that lived on a small island near Vancouver Island) did their part to stand up to corporate tyranny and anthropocentrism by laying down in front of heavy machinery and chaining themselves to 900 year old Douglas Fir trees in the rainforest of Vancouver island. They were arrested several times (along with hundreds of others) and though their efforts managed to protect small patches of that ancient forest, 30 years later, when the armies of corporate lawyers using legal loopholes and corrupt police overwhelmed the current forest protectors, now this is happening https://thenarwhal.ca/bc-old-growth-forest-vancouver-island-caycuse/

          Does this mean I suggest we should give up hope? No, for even if the extremely grim situation I describe above is what we are facing that does not negate the value of using one’s free will and one’s moments on this Earth to defend life, to stand up and give a voice to those that cannot speak for themselves and to choose hope, courage, love and peace in the face of fear, hubris, apathy, violence and cowardice.

          Each choice we make leaves a mark, not only in the lives of those we share this world with (as my grandparents did with their courageous and selfless actions, inspiring me to learn from nature, explore and protect wilderness places and to write a book about gardening and creating in the kitchen) but perhaps more importantly, each choice we make leaves a mark on our soul. Regardless of what happens in this life on the Earth, each time we choose love and courage over fear and apathy, and each time we choose to plant seeds and do that which is life affirming, rather than capitulating to the pressures of our sick materialistic and anthropocentric modern mainstream culture, we are enriching a part of our selves that we will carry with us always, beyond this life, beyond space and time, to a place one might call ‘home’.

          From the perspective of my spirit I remember that there is beauty and meaning to be found in impermanence. From that knowing, whether or not my efforts in this life send out clearly observable multi-generational ripple effects or not becomes irrelevant. After all, within a broader cosmic cycle, the inevitable natural result for this world will be end of all life on Earth. Planets only live as long as their stars burn, and eventually our sunโ€™s life will come to an end as well, at which point all that ever was created by humans on this Earth will eventually be turned back into the stardust from once it came.


        • Gavinm says:

          (continued from above..)

          Does that inevitability make living a life where one chooses to be creative, kind, courageous, hopeful and curious any less meaningful?

          (I elaborate further on my own perspective on an answer to that question here: https://www.corbettreport.com/february-open-thread-2023/#comment-146981 )

          You asked “How do we foundation Thoreauโ€™s castle in the sky in a place thatโ€™s actually safe?”

          Perhaps the point of this particular stage in our unfolding as a species (and our evolution as individual beings) is to accept that from a logical, mechanistic, deterministic perspective, there is no way to choose a “safe” path forward?

          Perhaps the only choice before us is either courage and compassion (which could result in extreme physical and financial oppression) or the slow soul corroding path of complacency, apathy and conformity?

          Neither path may be “safe”, but one is easier than the other, and we are given the opportunity to choose who and what we want to be at this fork in the road.


        • Gavinm says:

          (continued from above..)

          Or, perhaps we (with our limited human brains) cannot fathom the meaningful ways in which our efforts to protect the natural world and stand up for our fellow beings will be supported by forces beyond our comprehension and what will be is more along the lines of what people like Charles Eisenstein suggest in his assertions about how “A Path Will Rise To Meet Us”?

          He suggests that “..An abuser, whether a person or a system, offers an opportunity to graduate to a new degree of sovereignty. ๐—ช๐—ฒ ๐—ฐ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—บ ๐—ฏ๐˜† ๐—ฒ๐˜…๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฎ ๐—ต๐˜‚๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ถ๐˜€. ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ธ, ๐˜€๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ต ๐—ฎ ๐—ฐ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—บ ๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜€๐˜‚๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ต ๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐—ฎ ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜†๐—ฒ๐—ฟ. ๐—”๐—ป ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฒ๐—น๐—น๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐˜†๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐—น ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐˜€ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜†๐—ฒ๐—ฟ, ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ด๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ถ๐˜‡๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ถ๐˜.

          Either way, for me personally, with regards to creating intentional communities, community gardens, food forests and regenerative residential gardens, it all boils down to “how do I want to spend the remaining time I have on the Earth?”.

          For me, whether or not said communities/gardens persist for years, decades or centuries, my answer is still the same.

          I still choose to build sandcastles on the beach even though I know that the tide will eventually come.


        • Gavinm says:

          (continued from above..)

          Now if I were to put on my pragmatic, proactive, reductionist (yet perpetually optimistic) permaculture design hat and look at the dynamics and hypotheticals you described and asked about above I would say that perhaps we can turn these problems into solutions.

          Perhaps (as I had suggested in another comment on here with regards to the chemical spill/burn and/or chemical warfare attack situation in Ohio recently) we who seek to create and/or contribute towards creating intentional communities can use these patterns of abuse, destruction and toxic contamination to more precisely strategize in our planning for where we will set up our envisioned community as to avoid and/or minimize the potential for such harms to impact our planned communities?

          With the Ohio situation, we were given the opportunity to strategize to plan the location for our intended intentional communities to avoid train tracks and take into account the watershed dispersal and prevailing winds connected onto existing train tracks.

          With the proliferation of mining corporations pillaging the Earth and poisoning the water, air and soil, perhaps we can also extrapolate some kind of map grid that avoids areas that are more likely to be mined (using available geological, topographical and geopolitical data sets) so we can also plan for our communities to be less likely to be impacted by the harms of the mining industry.

          So “What will be their prospects, then? Where are these children of children going to up and go to in the year 2070, or 2100, or 2150?”

          Perhaps the sandcastles we build on the beach will be washed away by the rising tide sooner than later.. or perhaps we (or some other force beyond our current comprehension) will stem the tide and those sandcastles will persist for a few more moments (on the scale of the lifespan of the Earth and our solar system, which would equate to centuries or perhaps millennia of human years) either way, I see the choice to build those ‘sandcastles’ (and the soul enriching process of co-creating them and experiencing them) as worth while.

          Perhaps the Solution Watch podcasts are offering sign posts to embark on a path to involve oneself in that which enriches the more eternal aspect of our being, and that process, in and of itself, is what makes putting those solutions into action worth while?

          Therefore, I would say that whether or not one considers the Solutions Watch podcast as a “misnomer” or not, depends on how one defines the problem we are trying to find solutions for.

        • candlelight says:


          Well, I thank you so much for your extensive, very thoughtful and thought provoking reply. You are very forthcoming in presenting your viewpoints, in answer to questions posed in what I can only describe as in the manner of pure openness. And in doing so, your words speak volumes.

          The story of your grandparents brings me back to the summer of 1971. It was with an organized group of teenagers biking around the Canadian West, that I got to explore Vancouver Island, where, besides hanging out in Victoria, we wound up for a day or so on the beach on the Pacific side. To this day, it remains one of my most memorable experiences. We met people there who had build small shelters for themselves out of driftwood who were living right there on the beach for months on end. They were literally dug into the beach, if you will. As one of these beach inhabitants explained, the Rangers who patrolled the beach left them be and didn’t bother them. This idea of living on the beach was a real phenomenon to me, which imbued within me an incredible sense of freedom, best expressed and exclaimed perhaps by the French expression joie de vie!
          So, I’m thinking, who knows, maybe if your grandparents happened to be on the Island that year in August, our paths may have crossed? ๐Ÿ™‚

          I would like to say that I do believe I understand your perspectives on what you have most masterfully touched upon here, and have uncannily expressed without a single, solitary trace of negativity. If there’s one thing proven in your posts, realism and negativity are, indeed, mutually exclusive.

          In your philosophical stance, what we choose to do, how we choose to live our lives, as you say, leaves a mark, and reverberates upon others as well as ourselves, just as your grandparents’ life choices reverberated and left a mark upon your own life. That you’ve framed the reference of your grandparents’ act of defiance as a focal point, is significant.

          • candlelight says:

            Your grandparents’ influence upon you, in essence, highlights one of concerns I have about the emphasis put on intentional communities and their relative value as a “solution”. Though, poignantly, however, you did point out that the relativistic value of a solution (vis-a-vis a Solution Watch podcast) “depends on how one defines the problem we are trying to find solutions for.”….Very well said.

            The latest Solution Watch featured Derrick Broze who is now spending his time and energy developing his eco-village, an intentional community, located in a rural area of Mexico. I find Derrick Broze to be a highly intelligent man, very well spoken, very articulate, very organized and cogent. I truly admired what he was doing several years ago when he was reporting on the advent of 5G……

            And, and, and! Wait a minute! Forgive my excitement, but I’ll be damned. I was just in the middle of checking out what city it was in Texas a few years ago before he took off for Mexico, that he was pushing back against the 5G network before the court – something very admirable which I thought he had forsaken! – and here I find that Broze is running for Mayor of Houston in 2023! Huh?

            I don’t get it? How can he be back and forth between developing his rural land in Mexico, as featured on the Solutions Watch, and him running for office in Houston, at the same time, now, in 2023??

            I had no idea. I was under the impression that Derrick wasn’t planning to step foot back in the States, let alone run for Mayor!

            This puts a whole new light on the subject of Solution Watch podcasts, permaculture farming communities, opting out, acting up, resistance, and mayoral runs!

            Gavinm, I have to let it go for now. But, I thank you, thank you, thank you, again, for your very kind and thoughtful post!


            • candlelight says:

              Hey Gavinm,

              Just a follow up on Derek Broze, and why I think I was completely perplexed discovering that he’s running to be the next mayor of Houston.

              Besides previously thinking that he’d never return to the United States when he left for Mexico several years back, based solely on how I interpreted his rhetoric at the time, my most recent attention was drawn to the video on his Conscious Agora Ecovillage fund raiser site, that in my opinion, now that he’s purportedly running for mayor – for the second time, supposedly – his statements seem to be fully contradictory. To wit:

              (in the past)“…I’ve done protests and rallies and marches, I even ran for mayor, thinking that maybe this was the way to create the world that I want. And, over the years I’ve come to see that it’s not really going to lead to the change I want. That if I want to see change in the world, I need to be that change, I need to create it myself, and live it and embody it…”(hence his idea for an ecovillage)


              On the fundrazr site, one of his contributors asked the following on Feb. 3rd:

              “An exciting project! But does it even go forward if Derrick becomes mayor of Houston?”

              Wherein Derek replied:

              “Yes this project is happening one way or another!”

              I hate to be cynical, but, I find this very dubious on Derek’s part. Especially that he doesn’t offer his audience any explanation for his change of heart. Given Derek’s ideologically laden video promotion of his ecovillage, such an about-face to now decide to “run for mayor” is no small matter.

              While I’m at it, a hefty part of the “Building Community” Solution Watch podcast was devoted to pitching Derek’s ecovillage adventure. In so doing, Corbett messaged his viewership with the very images Derek used in his promotion to raise money, notably the panning of what looked like some million dollar modern glass and wood beam constructed yoga hut….oh, yeah…sure. Why? Why was such a fancy structure imaged? Is that what Derek plans to build on his Mexican property? If not, then such promotional imagery is completely fraudulent in nature. And, if so, then it’s both surprising and beneath Corbett’s level to have let it slip. In the real world, such false advertising might potentially lead to investors filing law suits.

              But, maybe this isn’t the real world, and maybe Derek isn’t really running for mayor, either, in any true sense of the word.

              And, will Derek eventually fund raise for his potential mayorship, too?

              Again, I hate to be cynical, but to the future successes of Derek’s dueling notions of making the change to the world that he wants, only time will tell…. Rhetorically speaking, that is.

              • candlelight says:

                I guess the truth of the matter is I’m no longer very heady on Derek’s projects, or Derek, for that matter. I now strongly question his motivations together with his sincerity.

                There were some other things about the ecovillage presentation that seemed weird to me. First, the whole thing about them having narrowed down their start-up group from what, 600 applicants? Down to a half dozen? After being culled from 600 people, I would have thought these successful applicants would have somehow presented themselves in a little more impressive manner. Maybe it’s just me, but these folks didn’t inspire any confidence that they’re really up for producing a successful project. There’s no mention of their qualifications, experience, nothing.

                The other thing is where are Derek and co. really at? Are they in the process of raising money to buy the property? Do they have a retainer? How long is the owner going to wait for them to purchase it?
                Is this property arable? Is there a potable water source, besides what looks to be a stagnant, green pond in the background?
                There seems to be a broken down shack on the property. Is that the only existent structure?
                They’ve raised $13,000 dollars so far with $200,000 needed. Needed for what? Is that the cost of the property? Or, the cost to buy the property and build a couple of masonry igloos?

                Why does their fund raising website have zero pertinent information, except for Derek espousing his contradictory ideations?

                I’m really sorry, but this whole thing, unfortunately, just doesn’t cut it.

            I saw the tail end of the time when people would live on the beach near Tofino on the rugged edge of the west coast. When I was about 7 my parents took me backpacking along that coast and we interacted with many of the beach dwelling people. We spent time telling stories around the camp fire with many free spirited and vibrant people that called that coastline home (without any property deeds and without taking more than they needed to survive). Many of them fished for cod off the rocks each morning, collected shellfish, traded with the First Nation people that fished for salmon, foraged for fungi and sometimes drove into Tofino to buy some crops from local farmers.

            Your description of your experiences there brings back some fond memories when I went back there as a young adult in an attempt to recapture the magic I have experienced when I was younger.

            We (me and two friends, including a french Canadian guy I had met that summer, a salsa dancing teacher friend from Russia and another guy I had met that summer from Dubai) brought about 80 lbs of home grown organic roma tomatoes, 40 lbs of mini-watermelons, 20 lbs of peppers and a bunch of herbs and zucchinis with us on our road trip to the west coast (which were the results of an end of season harvest I had grown on my parents farm in the South Okanagan). We traded home grown produce for salmon with some locals, traded produce with local restaurant owners for meals, fished for cod, collected oysters and made an amazing pot of seafood chowder over a camp fire on the beach. We built a small drift wood structure and camped out for a couple nights.

            However, on the second morning we awoke to a female park warden hovering over us with her hand on her side arm (having unbuckled her holster) demanding we go with her to be questioned. She listed a bunch of regulations we had violated (amounting to close to a thousand dollars in fines) but thankfully after my friend did some smooth talking we managed to get away with only a minor fine. Times have changed on the free loving west coast, the imperialistic grip of statism tightens around the beech dwellers, the forest dwellers and around the forest itself as well.

            Still, those were some good times, so thanks for the flash back ๐Ÿ™‚


            • candlelight says:

              Well, that’s the thing, Gavinm, I fell in love with Canada on that first trip. Not only was it the mind-blowing wonder of seeing the Canadian Rockies for the first time (or any mountains), or the wildness of Vancouver’s West Coast, but at that time back in 1971, I had this visceral feeling of actually escaping from the grip of an imperial, conservative country and entering a land devoid of war mongers, a country at peace. I don’t think Canada wanted any part of the conflict the States were involved in. They probably had enough problems of their own with Quebec seeking to break away, as it was. The Vietnam War was still in full swing, with a citizenry who were for and against it, and it was divisive. And here was Canada who opened her arms to anyone with no questions asked, inviting dissenters the offer of refuge. That was a big deal. Even though I was several years away from draft age, a feeling of being free was palpable. I remember walking past a huge tent city made up of Americans in Vancouver, who were avoiding the draft, or simply AWOL. The feeling of Canada as a sovereign nation was also palpable. It was, for whatever their reasons, a pretty righteous thing to do. So, I guess every once in a while even statists make good choices.
              Your Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau, was something of a libertine in reputation. From the perspective of a young American, he was cool and easygoing, far removed from the likes of our stuffed shirt, Richard Nixon. My understanding of Canadian politics is rather limited, but, I would have to guess that Pierre has been rolling for some time in his grave over his son’s disgusting administration. While Canada of yore was all about liberty and independence, it has sadly morphed into the authoritarian lock-stepped puppy we know today. Perhaps the last bastion of liberty may be found in Quebec? But, even still, I know that Montreal had gone into full Covid protocol lock-down. So, I don’t know. Seems the French also have long waned in their desire for any sort of independence….

              All of it’s rather depressing to think about. But, nonetheless, it was really neat to hear about your experience with the beach dwellers. It was even heartening to hear you use that particular expression for them. I never realized it was that much of a thing, and not isolated to the few people on the section of beach where I was. It’s interesting, too, that we have that shared experience.

              • candlelight says:

                Funny how you mentioned that you went back with your friends to relive the experience. I, too, traveled back a few years later with a buddy of mine to do the same. I was still too young to drive so we hitchhiked across from home via Niagara Falls. I never did make it back to Vancouver Island’s West Coast, but instead dropped down from Vancouver to make the loop back east. One thing I’ve found in my life is that the things you want to go back and relive again are never quite the same as the first time.

                C’est la vie.

              • Gavinm says:


                Thanks for sharing your experiences and the impressions you got when you visited Canada back in the early 70-s.

                You had the chance to see Canada right at the tail end of a time when our central bank was effectively being used as it was created to be used (to essentially create debt free money that was infused into the economy resulting in large improvements in infrastructure).

                While I have my own personal concerns and issues with the very foundation of fiat currency itself, humanocentric statist policies and other dynamics that I feel are detrimental I will share a piece of little known Canadian history below (from the perspective of the average money and state loving person) to explain what I meant above.

                The Bank of Canada was established in 1934 under private ownership but in 1938 the government nationalized the bank so since then it has technically been publicly owned. It was mandated to lend not only to the federal government but to provinces as well. To help bring Canada out of the Great Depression debt-free money was injected into various infrastructure projects.

                The Bank financed programs to assist WW2 veterans with vocational and university training and provided them with farmland (which unfortunately was land that of course had been stolen from First Nation peoples, but that is a whole nother ball of wax).

                For the next 30 years following World War II, it was the Bank of Canada that helped to transform Canadaโ€™s economy and lift the standards of living for Canadians (that does not necessarily include First Nation peoples mind you, as the government here was still dehumanizing, torturing and murdering them on reservations and in ‘residential schools’). It was the Bank that financed a wide range of infrastructure projects and other ventures. This included the construction of the Trans-Canada highway, the St. Lawrence Seaway, airports and subway systems. In addition, during this period seniorsโ€™ pensions, family allowances, and Medicare were established, as well as nation-wide hospitals, universities, and research facilities. One could argue about the morality, long term detriments and anthropocentric nature of many such initiatives, but to the average statist normie, these projects were seen as hugely beneficial.

                The important point here is that between 1939 and 1974 the federal government borrowed extensively from its own central bank. That made its debt effectively interest-free, since the government owned the bank and got the benefit of any interest. But following 1974 came a dramatic change.

                (this graph depicts the results of the folly/treachery I will describe further in a comment below: https://archive.org/details/240593867-959092524939156-6719596316179945165-n )


              • Gavinm says:

                (continued from above..)

                In 1974 the Bank for International Settlements (the bank of central bankers) formed the Basel Committee to ostensibly establish global monetary and financial stability (aka global domination).

                Canada, i.e., the Pierre Trudeau Liberals, joined in the deliberations. The Basel Committeeโ€™s solution to the โ€œstagflationโ€ problem of that time was to encourage governments to borrow from private banks, that charged interest, and end the practice of borrowing interest-free from their own publicly owned banks. Their argument was that publicly owned banks inflate the money supply and prices, whereas chartered banks supposedly only recycle pre-existing money. What they purposefully suppressed was that private banks create the money they lend just as public banks do. And as banking specialist Ellen Brown states: โ€œThe difference is simply that a publicly-owned bank returns the interest to the government and the community, while a privately-owned bank siphons the interest into its capital account, to be reinvested at further interest, progressively drawing money out of the productive economy.โ€ The effect of such a change would remove a powerful economic tool from the hands of democratic governments and give such control to a small group of transnational bankers.

                Successive Canadian governments since Trudeau number 1 have surrendered sovereign control over monetary policies and money supply to the beliefs of the international private bankers and investors. As a result, Canadians have been saddled with government debt at all levels โ€“ debt that has needlessly risen exponentially since 1974.

                The debt curve that began its exponential rise in 1974 tilted toward the vertical in 1981, when interest rates were raised by the U.S. Federal Reserve to 20%. At 20% compounded annually, debt doubles in less than four years. Canadian rates went as high as 22% during that period. Canadians have now paid over a trillion dollars in interest on federal and provincial debtโ€”at least more than twice the actual debt itself.

                Essentially, thanks to either Trudeau senior’s ignorance/incompetence, or perhaps treachery, this country has been in the pocket of the banksters ever since.

                Trudeau senior may have seemed to be “cool and easygoing” as compared to Nixon, but he actually initiated his own version of the “Emergencies Act” in his time (just like his son did) suspending citizens rights and taking on the powers of a dictator. Here is a clip where a news reporter is asking him about his decision to suspend citizens rights and initiate a type of martial law, and when the reporter asks how far he would go in taking away people’s rights and using soldiers on the streets, he arrogantly replied “well just watch me”.

                Now here we are 50 years later, with his son (although being a much more sheepish and cowardly brand of bully) essentially saying the same thing with his “emergencies act”.

              • Gavinm says:


                I do not think the last bastion of liberty can be found in Quebec.

                My wife is from Quebec and I enjoyed visiting there to explore the beautiful forests and I actually enjoyed Montreal too (and I am not typically a city person).

                However the Quebec provincial police are notoriously corrupt and violent (they were those weird eastern European military looking goons with no name tags that were called in to stomp on the women and other peaceful protestors in Ottawa during the freedom convoy emergency act crackdown, which people in the convoy came to refer to as “the green goblins”).

                Also, Quebec tried to impose some of the most insane and fascistic biosecurity laws during the scamdemic (including but not limited to their government attempting to pass a law that would have imposed a “health tax” on unvaccinated Canadians).


                Alberta seems to currently have politicians that are spitting in the face of certain plutocrats, but that could just be talk and/or if the oligarchs really get pissed off they could always just blackmail, bribe, threaten or call in their wet-work assets (so I am not under the impression any one province is guaranteed to be a “bastion of liberty” at this point).

                Ya those beach dwellers were all up that long stretch of coastline (like 60 km plus of beach) and then some lived in shanti shacks and tree houses in the forest too. My uncle Mark lived in a fortified 2 story tree house in the rainforest of the clayoquot sound for a couple years. He is an expert mushroom forager and gourmet chef so he would harvest seasonal harvests from the woods sell them for top dollar and then go and work as a chef at four season resorts when the cold weather arrived.

                I am glad we shared a similar experience of that unique place and people on the rugged coast. Perhaps some day after the collapse of modern civilization there will be a beach dweller revival, and I shall go there to tell the youngins stories around the camp fire ๐Ÿ™‚

              • candlelight says:


                So it goes, the actual truth about Trudeau senior, being another hard-hearted, self-important prick. Back then, my perception of him was that he had a mod, with-it, and progressive persona. You could also say he had a tabloid worthy personal life, as well, if memory serves me right. But, from the “just watch me” clip, and the financial and monetary manipulations he was involved in – being more traitorous than merely a case of incompetence, if loyalty and service to the public good is any measure – it appears that in reality he was a straight out banker’s puppet, and just listening to the way in which he commented about letting the bleeding hearts bleed some more, I’d say he was, in actuality, a cold and soulless son of a bitch. How strange to have that old memory bubble burst on me.

                The historical record you’ve laid out leaves little doubt as to why Canada had once behaved independently to a much far greater extent than it does now, for as the private banking interests gained greater leverage due to the monetary policy switcheroo, the government began marching to the same drums that their southern neighbor had started marching to decades earlier…. So, no, I don’t think Canada will be holding out their arms to people escaping American authoritarianism any time soon, as they’ve been busy the last fifty years following suit!

                By the way, I liked how you ended your post with the idea of a beach dweller revival. It made me smile, because I almost ended one of my posts similarly. I was going to say something like maybe the beach will open up after the great liberation!

                I’m going to have to give some careful thought on statism and the concept of violent coercion – a complex problem to ponder, for sure.

                Thank you for the challenge!

          • Gavinm says:

            (continued from above..)

            My grandparents did frequent Vancouver Island regularly (they also biked all over the place to experience nature) so it is very possible you did cross paths with them. They ran a very unique bed and breakfast/restaurant called “The Pink Geranium” on a little island called Galiano (part of the Gulf Islands). I believe they opened it in the late 70-s and it ran until about 2002. They had 16 raised bed gardens where they cultivated a diverse array of veggies, berries and herbs, they cultivated their own gourmet mushrooms (which was very unusual at that time), they traded with First Nation fishers for salmon, collected shellfish and foraged a lot in the temperate rainforest that was their backyard.
            Most of what they served at their B&B/restaurant (which had no menu, offered only unique 3 course meals made with what was seasonally available) was made with ingredients that came from the above sources. This resulted in their restaurant becoming extremely popular among gourmet foodies and world travelers and they were regularly booked 6 months in advance.

            They certainly did inspire me a lot in becoming who I am through the way in which they lived.


            That is very perplexing regarding Derrick Broze and what sounds like his potential intent to run for Mayor. I`ll have to look into that before I comment further on that.

            Thanks for sharing your thoughts and concerns with regards to “opting out” specific community projects and their leaders. I`ll have to come back to share my thoughts on that another time as I am tryna work out the final details of publishing an ebook.

            I appreciate the kind words and your taking the time to read what I wrote.

            • candlelight says:


              I think maybe I was being a bit too harsh and too critical of Broze; so, I’ll back step.

              First of all, I really have no idea when his ecovillage promotional video was recorded. It could have been recorded some time ago for all I know, long before he changed his mind about giving a mayoral run a second go-round. He’s a busy guy, so he may not have gotten around to explaining to his audience his rethinking the idea, because he certainly was expressing that the idea for establishing an ecovillage was part of reinventing himself, so to speak.

              Perhaps, he suddenly found out that he may now have a good shot at running for mayor, for whatever reason, which hadn’t existed at an earlier time. Who knows? So, maybe he’s not being dubious at all. Maybe his statement of “…I need to be that change, I need to create it myself, and live it and embody it…” was more a symptom of defeatism than anything else, and that in his heart of hearts he really would, above all else, wish to become mayor of Houston!

              So, I apologize to Broze. I also shouldn’t have dissed his crew of which I know nothing about, so my apologies to them, too.

              Who does that leave? Hmm. Hmm……. Oh!

              I chastised the headmaster, too…. Sorry! ๐Ÿ™‚


              • candlelight says:

                Initially, Gavinm, the reason why I was so excited about the prospect of Broze running for office, if indeed, he is being sincere, which he probably is, is that I have a much different attitude about effecting change for the better via government than you. Whereas your faith in government is lacking, or rather, nonexistent, I hold out some, even though the system is, undoubtedly, corrupted. But, I believe that it’s not necessarily irretrievably so.

                You seemed to intimate in an earlier post your acceptance that all things eventually change, so much so, that you stated“this Earth will eventually be turned back into the stardust from once it came.” I wholeheartedly agree, and in my opinion, such a sentiment could not have been phrased more poetically, as was your entire post!

                However, in the greatest of ironies, the one thing you refuse to believe, that is, the one belief of yours that is unchanging (hence the irony) is that the institution of “State” is just as unchangeable as your unchangeable belief of its unchangeability (a 2nd irony, if you will).

                Does it make sense, really, that you readily accept that all things change in this world, moreover, in this universe, except for the State and the Statists who work within it?

              • candlelight says:

                How is that possible?

                So, I propose that your idรฉe fixe is incorrect.

                I believe that all things change and evolve over time. Governments change, people change, attitudes change, juxtapositions change, ideas change, knowledge and understanding change, ad infinitum…including States and Statists.

                Hey, enter, Derrick Broze!

                If he becomes mayor of Houston for some crazy, insane reason, then please tell me that this would not only be a change, but an incredible change?

                I know, I know, you probably have no less than 1,000 reasons why it wouldn’t make any difference.

                The thing is, when I state that the State does change, I will qualify that statement by adding that the change on average is very, very, very slow.

                For examples:

                Take for instance the abominable recent expose of what befell the Indigenous children in Western Canada at the residential school in Kamloops. I do not believe anything like that will even occur again, not on an institutional level. That school began as a Catholic school in 1890, it was taken over by the government in 1969 and closed in 1978. It is my belief that society has changed, has evolved, to the point that a situation like that will never occur again in the Western Hemisphere. I’m sure there are countless examples like this throughout millennia, but such instances will no longer occur. Society will not let it happen.

                My reasoning is simple, that people’s perceptions, attitudes and relationships are evolving, slowly, and becoming more “civilized”, slowly, as time goes on.

                I was amazed once to learn of the etymology of a certain phrase: While the family was visiting Scotland once upon a time, we were in a town with an old, ancient building that they turned into a museum. Said building was once the town’s municipal building that housed at its lowest level a torture chamber. The museum had mock-ups of various instruments of torture that were routinely used in their day. One particular instrument consisted of a rack to which an individual would be harnessed, whereby the individual would be stretched to the point that both arms and both legs would be torn from their torso….
                It was from this lovely instrument that we were bequeathed the phrase: “drawn and quartered”.

                What was once common, routine and acceptable 400 years ago no longer is, is my point. Society is changing, perceptions are changing. Perhaps the oligarchs at the top are changing at the slowest rate, but since the universe is changing, as I think we both agree, so must everything in it, including them.

                I’m not even sure what my point was, though I’ll say hurrah for Broze, and I hope he gets elected!


              • cu.h.j says:

                Interesting about the possible second run for mayor. I actually do think that working towards positive change can be trying to work within the political structure like running for local office. Even JC said that the process toward voluntaryist communities would be gradual. We still live in a leader follower structure, even in small tribal communities. There’s a chief in Indian tribes in the US. I do think Derick does have leadership skills and recognizes that and can use it to inspire.

                Even if he doesn’t win, it gets communities engaged and he can talk with people. I think a good strategy (maybe a parallel strategy could be people running for mayor or another small office at the local level). Even if you don’t win, you can plant seeds and engage with the locals.

                I don’t have that kind of inspiration and I dislike public speaking and stuff like that so it’s not for me, but people who enjoy community engagement like Derick, I think it’s great actually.

                The local sheriff of a community actually has a lot of importance. There was a sheriff in Arizona who stood up to the lockdown orders and refused to arrest people. People who work for the system can change things and simultaneously work toward something better IMO.

                Great question.

                The statists are just people who are themselves all each in a constant state of change, learning (or not) being conditioned, hardened or softened, inspired/uplifted or oppressed and myriad other forms of influence that are constantly reshaping their mental landscape (to varying degrees based on their willingness, courage, humility or lack thereof). So the people who I describe as statists are of course capable of change.

                However, “statism” as I am using the term, refers to a static belief system, that while it may morph superficially, always has at it’s core the immoral foundation of violent coercion being weaponized by those that claim the right to have a monopoly on force (in “government” which etymologically speaking translates to a system designed for “mind control”).

                Violent coercion of a minority at the behest of a majority (which is what democracy is, if it actually functioned as advertised, which it rarely if ever does) is an unchanging aspect of the State (aka “government” which is another word for a multi-generational organized crime cartel).

                Perhaps the way you are using the word “state” or “statism” allows for communities, societal organizing structures/principals and forms of leadership to exist that do not involve violent coercion. If that is the case, I would like to learn more about examples of that and/or to contemplate how such a hypothetical “state” that does not involve violent coercion would function so I can potentially expand my understanding and potentially reconsider my stance on “statism”.

                Thanks for asking the question.

            • candlelight says:

              Of course, Gavinm, in rereading the above, it’s quite obvious that what I’ve failed to mention is the 8000 lbs gorilla in the room. That is, not every aspect associated with society’s evolution is necessarily for the better. What I left out of the equation is the ever looming Oligarchical controlled Corporate data sucking, behavior modifying, world wide technology driven surveillance and AI systems – for profit – that are poised to eradicate or lessen the necessity of human decision making of any kind and or any personal freedom humans have ever known.

              Once he’s in office, though, we’re going to let Broze get to work on it. ๐Ÿ™
