    I am currently reading the book Ordinary Men, which is the true story of Reserve Police Battalion 101 of the German Order Police, responsible for mass shootings and round-ups of Jewish people for deportation to Nazi death camps in Poland in 1942. It is a dark example of how Mass Formation works. I would highly recommend the book.

    Browning argues that most of the men of RPB 101 were not fanatical Nazis but, instead, ordinary middle-aged, working-class men who committed these atrocities out of a mixture of motives, including the group dynamics of conformity, deference to authority, role adaptation, and the altering of moral norms to justify their actions.

    Three groups emerged quickly within the battalion: a core of eager killers. This plurality carried out their duties reliably but without initiative, and a small minority evaded participation in the acts of killing without diminishing the murderous efficiency of the battalion whatsoever.

    While this book discusses a specific Reserve Unit during WWII, the general argument Browning makes is that most people succumb to the pressures of a group setting and commit actions they would never do of their own volition.

    Milgram adduced a number of factors to account for such an unexpectedly high degree of potentially murderous obedience to a noncoercive authority. An evolutionary bias favors the survival of people who can adapt to hierarchical situations and organized social activity. Socialization through family, school, and military service, as well as a whole array of rewards and punishments within society generally, reinforces and internalizes a tendency toward obedience. A seemingly voluntary entry into an authority system “perceived” as legitimate creates a strong sense of obligation. Those within the hierarchy adopt the authority’s perspective or “definition of the situation” (in this case, as an important scientific experiment rather than the infliction of physical torture). The notions of “loyalty, duty, discipline,” requiring competent performance in the eyes of authority, become moral imperatives overriding any identification with the victim. Normal individuals enter an “agentic state” in which they are the instrument of another’s will. In such a state, they no longer feel personally responsible for the content of their actions but only for how well they perform.23 Once entangled, people encounter a series of “binding factors” or “cementing mechanisms” that make disobedience or refusal even more difficult. The momentum of the process discourages any new or contrary initiative. The “situational obligation” or etiquette makes refusal appear improper, rude, or even an immoral breach of obligation. And a socialized anxiety over potential punishment for disobedience acts as a further deterrent.24 Milgram made direct reference to the similarities between human behavior in his experiments and under the Nazi regime. He concluded, “Men are led to kill with little difficulty.”

    The president of Bayer’s Pharmaceuticals Division told international “experts” during a globalist health conference that the mRNA COVID-19 shots are indeed “cell and gene therapy” marketed as “vaccines” to be palatable to the public.

    So is the real goal in all of this mRNA as a vaccine to push acceptance of CRISPR?

    If you have a compromised genomes from the “vaxx”, then you will beg them to give you CRISPR to “fix” it.

    They definitely have backed some religious leaders into a corner! In the past they might have been against CRISPR but support of mRNA will force them to accept.

    “Mattias Desmet, Professor of Clinical Psychology at Ghent University is doing some of the best work on the current rise of totalitarianism. Dr. Desmet studies what’s called “Mass Formation” — the conditions that produce collective delusions and willing participation in totalitarian systems.

    This is one of the most eye opening interviews I have seen:

    @oxymoron You made me smile with your post:

    “Read your post and links gave me an overwhelming urge to go outside, look at the moon and take my clothes off and jump in my dam.”

    I would join you in a coordinated jump in our respective dams/ponds, but it is winter here 🙂

    My wife and I have left the techno narcissistic city life to try and start a small farm in the country. It has not been easy, but getting back and working with nature has been a Godsend.

    As I always say “Mother nature is a harsh mistress, but a wonderful lover. If you love your land it will love you back.”

    Great article. To be human has been lost, but I think the good news is that it is not that hard to recover. We are human after all.

    A bit like CS Lewis’s story about the Great Divorce. The folks in “hell” have a hard time letting go, so too are the NPCs who are afraid of becoming who the are, human.

    I have to admit that this whole Covid thing has forced me to closely exam what it means to be human, spirituality, and appreciating what our ancestors did in the founding of western civilization.

    Yea, it is a truly wonderful telling of “In One Hour Is She Made Desolate”.

    Thou shall not forget how this came about,

    And Saint Fauci raised the Holy Covid Jab up on high
    saying, “Oh Biden, Bless us this Holy Covid Jab, and with it
    Vax our enemies with tiny spikes.”
    And the Biden did grin, and the people did feast upon the
    beyond beef, and soybeans, and bugs, and breakfast
    cereals, and lima beans!
    And then the Biden spake, saying:
    “First, shalt thou take out the holy vaccine.
    Then shalt thou inject thus three times.
    No more, no less.
    *Three* shall be the number of the counting, and the number
    of the counting shall be three.
    *Four* shalt thou not count, and neither count thou two,
    excepting that thou then goest on to three.
    Five is RIGHT OUT. Once the number three, being the third
    number be reached, then inject thou thy Holy Covid Jab thrice
    into thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff
    it. Amen.

    @Raúl thank you for all of your hard work and great information.

    I wonder if there is some portion of society that have latched on to this “crisis” and made it their “new way” of life?

    It gives people meaning, they can be a part of the movement. It has become part of their value structure.

    Getting Jabbed is the new “mass” service or confession. Thus only the most Vaxxed are the most pure.

    Have others on this site seen this behavior?

    @veracious-poet You make a great point. I think there is a technique where a criminal gets another person(target) to commit a small crime. Then they have the goods on the target. Furthermore, they can leverage up pressure on the target to commit even bigger crimes.

    The target will then try to get others involved…. And so it spreads.

    I don’t know where it stops…. Can targets, who are protected by the state, ever come clean?

    “I noticed during the past couple decades that when I am very stressed, I get sick more. Now I am beginning to understand how vitamin D and zinc, etc., come into play as well. “

    I lucked out that my doctor had recommended vitamin D a decade ago. What I got wrong was the dosage. So when the COVID-19 struck, we learned that an adult amount needs to be 10,000 IU, not 1000 IU…

    Aramco to use seawater for the Saudi pressure maintenance

    A decade ago, oil analysis Don Coxe pointed out that Aramco had purchased equipment to inject seawater under the oil bed and oil equipment to extract the seawater.

    I wonder if all this hoopla over the earth ending in 12 years has to do with the Saudi’s running out of oil?

    What would a member of the elite class do?
    * Reduce plane travel
    * Slow the global economy down
    * Encourage electric vehicles.

    I don’t want to panic the herd, but if Saudi even slows down a bit, we will be in a world of hurt.

    So it appears Covid-19 can spread outdoors, and it now seems to have a host outside the human population.

    White-Tailed Deer Test Positive For SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)

    @ilargi I used to love reading the paper every morning, FT, Times, etc. I gave up on them because they went too woke/GlobalCap.

    When I discovered TAE, it became my new newspaper in the morning. I read about 80% of the articles posted by @ilargi and watched the clips.

    Calvin and Hobbes always bring a smile, along with the art posted at the start of each blog post.

    I should have posted yesterday: “I’m thankful for TAE and its community.”

    So thank your @ilargi for all of your hard work.

    To everyone else in the comments section, donating to TAE is a great Holiday Gift Idea!

    Forgot to include my reference to Biderman’s Chart of Coercion

    The 4th Turning video meshes with the Biderman’s Chart of Coercion:

     Biderman’s Chart of Coercion

    It is insidious how the institutions have diluted/deconstructed culture to the point that human society has been boiled down to sacks of meat powered by chemicals creating financial transactions for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many.

    I think we can only retake/recover by putting humans back in humanity:

    • Get in shape, strong body, strong mind.
    • Rediscover our western heritage, study the classics.
    • Rebuild our local cultures.

    Lie Booster

    Psychologically how well adapted are people into admitting they were lied to about the vaccine?

    Anecdotally, it appears that there is a streak of schadenfreude attitude in the Vaxxed. “I took one for the team; now it is your turn.”

    I’m not sure if we have the commonly shared values to “Do the right thing” vs. “Do the popular/expected thing” in today’s society.

    As JHK often says: “We live in a world where anything goes, and nothing matters.”

    What do some of the members of TAE think? Will there be a more significant proportion of society who took the Jab say “Enough is enough,” or will they be forced to get in line behind the official narrative?

    @Dora, thank you so much for posting the video of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò.

    It is wonderful to see that some members of the clergy still have integrity. As a Catholic, it gives me hope.

    Some observations about his speech:

    • Multiculturism is anticulture. The reason the global elite value open boards comes down to diluting local cultures where they no longer have any meaning.
    • Anti-globalist insurgency will be based on my motto of “Decentralize and Localize”. I think it will be more of an insurgency instead of a resistance.
    • Slavery is Freedom. Removing classical western literature, values, and thought from society has sent what we once valued down the memory hole.

    I think it is essential that we stand up for culture, “decentralize and localize,” and reacquaint ourselves with our rich western cultural heritage.

    I have found that the ” Young Heretics ” is a fun and enjoyable podcast that is an excellent introduction to our literary heritage is the “Young Heretics.” (https://www.youngheretics.com or look it up on your favorite Podcast Network)

    PS Getting the hang of this formating.
