“Observe how the thought pattern of worry blocks access to peace, and therefore to your true self.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 3:I
I came from a long line of worriers. My grandmother said I came by my worry “honestly.” Only she, my grandmother, in four generations, remained peaceful and calm.
I do know that this quotation from Choose Only Love is right on. All is not lost, though, for I have made great strides to eliminate worry—just using thought stoppage, silently saying “Stop!,” when I start to fret.
We all want to come to know our true self. And this quotation tells us we can’t do that if we are caught up in the fruitless process of worrying. Peace is our birthright. Worry is a holdover from the ego.
Ask for peace today. Ask for peace every day. We can change the habits of a lifetime if we put our…
We have psychopaths and sociopaths dressed up as politicians, public health officials, and billionaires, with egos the size of Jupiter, running the human race as hard as possible into the ground (mass graves). […]
When many people believe in obviously false and potentially distressing things based purely on hearsay, these beliefs are not considered clinical delusions by the psychiatric profession but are labeled instead as mass hysteria. Today, the public has been grossly misled about a range of issues from climate change to suffocating masks and the need for lockdowns and social distancing.
In England, people with learning disabilities have been given do not resuscitate orders during the second wave of the pandemic, despite the widespread condemnation of the practice last year and an urgent investigation by the care watchdog. Mencap said it had received reports in January from people with learning disabilities that they had been told they would not be resuscitated if they were taken ill with Covid-19.
The COVID pandemic has brought out the worst in man in many of our leadership and prominent corporations, which takes us right back into the lap of fascism. The governor of New York is a prime example, and it seems the law is going to catch up with him. He will be lucky if he does not eventually get charged with the manslaughter of nursing home residents for all the excess deaths that occurred. […] But what has the new medical fascism done with the old and the young? The Automatic Earth says:
“For the elderly it means having to spend their last years and days in near-absolute solitude. If you would ask them, many would say: just give me the virus, as long as I can see my children and grandchildren and friends while I’m still alive. But nobody asks them. They spent their entire lives just to be silenced. In order to eradicate a virus, we eradicate the very people who built the world we inherited from them.”
“For the very young it means stunted development. There is a ton of literature about how the first 5 or 10 years shape a child for life. Well, we just took a full year and counting away from that shape. We have no way of knowing to what extent that will affect them, but it won’t be zero. People are adaptive, sure, but that can be a negative thing just as much as a positive one. Caged animals adapt too; with neurosis. Children need to interact with each other, and with adults, to find their place in the world. How are they going to find that place now?
In Canada Peel Health has issued guidelines to parents instructing them to keep any children who have been sent home because a classmate has tested positive for COVID-19 isolated in a separate room from all other family members for 14 days. “This is cruel punishment for a child, especially for younger children, 4-10 years old, ” Dr. Susan Richardson, a microbiologist and infectious disease physician who is also a professor emerita at University of Toronto, wrote. “Shutting a child off from their parents and siblings for up to 14 days in this manner could produce significant and long-lasting emotional and psychological effects.”
The ruling class is not friendly; it does not serve the best interests of the people. The modern tools of fascism are lockdowns, masks (suffocating muzzles), and vaccines. These are backed by censorship and propaganda campaigns in the mainstream press and by the digital giants, by Google, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. What does my favorite Nazi-type person have to say about vaccines? Pandemic will not end until the world is vaccinated, Merkel says. In the Age of COVID fascism, the truth is what they say it is.
In early November, an Italian archbishop and foe of Pope Francis, Carlo Maria Vigano, launched an attack against those behind pandemic lockdowns across the globe, warning President Trump in a letter of the coming “Great Reset” whose architects are “a global élite that wants to subdue all of humanity, imposing coercive measures with which to drastically limit individual freedoms and those of entire populations.”
“The purpose of the Great Reset is the imposition of a health dictatorship aiming at the imposition of liberticidal measures, hidden behind tempting promises of ensuring a universal income and canceling individual debt,” Vigano’s letter continues.
Bottom Line. They are after our souls, not just our bodies.
Medical fascism is creeping up everywhere. A radical bill proposed by the French Government that would see unvaccinated people refused basic services such as public transport has been put on ice after a massive backlash. The proposed law mandates that citizens have proof of a negative COVID test or “preventative treatment, including the administration of a vaccine” in order to “access transport or to some locations, as well as certain activities.” However, the Government has been forced to delay the legislation after angry protests.
Robert Gore writes, “Totalitarianism has never produced anything but destruction, destitution, and death and never will, regardless of the totalitarians’ lofty rhetoric. Totalitarians are vultures, not eagles, and the current kettle of vultures intend to dine on the corpse of history’s most advanced civilization.” Who is spearheading this most recent advance are health officials and public health organizations like the WHO. And most politicians world over are in on it.

How it works
They tell you it’s microbes. What they don’t tell you is that it also takes Cell Lines that come from- form stem cells.
They want you to think in terms of microbes. Not in the terms of embryonic stem cells which – due to ethical and moral issues – are controversial when used in research. However, they do it anyway in the name of science. They have developed induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) – essentially multipotent blood and skin cells which have been reprogrammed back to a pluripotent state therefore enabling them to differentiate into a far greater range of specialized cells.
“…While most Americans suffer more than ever, the people at the top have stolen nearly a trillion dollars. (Quick Refresher: if you make $40,000 a year, in order to make a trillion dollars, it would take you a mere 25 million years.) Meanwhile, the lines outside food banks stretch for miles in many cities with people sometimes waiting five hours for a box of food assistance”
The Pandemic Dirty Dozen

It’s tough to even explain to people how much the wealth of the richest Americans has increased while everyone else has suffered during this pandemic. The human brain can’t process the numbers. It’s like trying to explain the entire plot of “Twin Peaks” to a dachshund or a house fly or a Kayleigh McEnany.
Trying to come to terms with this level of inequality is hard but necessary. We must keep reminding ourselves just how evil these rich sociopaths are. They are not normal or average evil. They are not run-of-the-mill evil.
(And to be honest, I don’t even know what that would entail. How could someone be evil in a mill? Even if they had their run of the place — they’d just be stealing grain and laughing maniacally, I guess? That’s if it’s a grain mill, I suppose. What if it were a windmill? What if he’s run-of-the-windmill evil? Then what kind of shit is he involved in? Blowing on the wrong side of the windmill just to screw up the airflow?)
With the help of the Institute of Policy Studies, here are the numbers detailing just how bad American inequality has gotten during this pandemic. In their latest report they write, “The combined wealth of 647 U.S. billionaires increased by almost $960 billion since mid-March, the beginning of the pandemic lockdown… .”

How is it citizens struggle to eat in one of the richest countries in the world – which pours billions per day into our military? A post-scarcity world where we throw out 40 percent of all food? You thought it was just your aunt’s casserole but no, literally millions of tons of untouched food splatters into landfills — a lot of it never even makes it to your plate. It’s thrown out by the producers and stores because it hasn’t sold or the meaningless expiration date has gone by or the fruits and veggies are too ugly.
We should all find it maddening that producers throw out tons of ugly fruits and veggies while their fellow citizens go hungry. There is nothing wrong with a malformed grotesquely distorted potato. Just ask Ted Cruz’s face. (Besides in terms of which foods people prefer, I believe physical appearance should rank far below the fruit or vegetable’s personality, net worth, and work ethic.)
So how did we get to this point in human evolution? How do we have human beings going hungry while we throw out nearly half the edible food and a select few individuals rake in Olympic swimming pools full of money? It’s inarguably because our economic system (AKA “capitalism,” AKA “slippery Pete,” AKA “the underhanded hello”) is a dumpster fire.
Just like a select few sociopaths oversee this horrible system, it’s also a select few corporations that benefit the most. The Institute For Policy Studies says, “Driving this exploding inequality are 12 companies whose profits are coming at the expense of workers and communities. …They include retailers like Walmart, Amazon, Target, Dollar Tree, Dollar Store, gig economy companies like Instacart, and food producers like Tyson Foods.”
Unbelievable profits don’t come out of nowhere. They are not beamed down from alien spacecraft or manifested using a magic wand. They are the result of the grand, breathtaking, generational exploitation of American workers. Just three members of the Walton family have added $48 Billion to their wealth since March of this year while giving their workers zero hazard pay.
Secret Santa but the secret is I’m Santa & only bought stuff for myself ?
And “The wealth of Amazon’s Jeff Bezos has increased by 62 percent since mid-March, totaling $188 billion as of November 17. Bezos is now the richest person on earth. Meanwhile an estimated 20,000 Amazon workers have been infected with COVID-19.”
Twenty thousand Amazon workers have been infected while making sure every American receives their high-speed sex toys and low-speed dog toys in less than two days. And those employees who speak out about the conditions are fired. So do you think their box has a smiley face on it now?? (When I first wrote that line, I didn’t realize the sexual connotations. Now I have, and yet, clearly, I foisted it upon you nonetheless. I’m sorry.)
Meanwhile, Bezos has $188 billion – an amount of money nearly equivalent to the GDP of New Zealand, a sum of money he will never come even close to using in his entire lifetime.
So basically the CEOs of these companies say to their employees, “You go to work, you get sick, you maybe die – especially if you live in one of the areas of the country where people think science is scary nonsense put forward by witches and autistic leprechauns. And then while you risk your life, we’ll pay you no more than usual – probably less than $15 an hour. Good luck out there.
Don’t forget to clean up the syrup dripping down the side of the Walmart cafeteria Slurpee machine while somebody’s rogue super-spreader toddler chews on your ankle.”
At this point in the column, a respected Ivy League corporate journalist would avoid naming the rich criminal masterminds pulling the levers of this abusive system. Lucky for you, fair reader, I’m neither corporate nor respected.
According to IPS, “Ten billionaire-owners of a delinquent dozen companies have a combined worth of $433 billion. Since March 18, their combined personal wealth has ballooned by $127 billion, a 42 percent increase. These 10 billionaires are Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Alice, Rob, and Jim Walton (Walmart), Apoorva Mehta (Instacart), John Tyson (Tyson Foods), Steve Schwarzman (Blackstone), Henry Kravis and George Roberts (KKR), and Steve Feinberg (Cerberus).”
And these billionaires rake in (but do not “earn”) hundreds of times what their averageworker makes. The CEO of Dollar Tree, Gary Philbin, makes 690 times his median worker while sitting in a nice clean office, not having to face off with customers who start throwing discount adult diapers at cashiers for asking them to wear a mask.
Come on, Gary, why don’t you head down to the local Dollar Tree and get beaten with a $2 pool noodle for 15 minutes and then see if you deserve to make 700 times what your workers do? When one-dollar off-brand superhero action figures called “Rodent Lady” and “Electricity Boy” start hitting you square in the forehead, maybe you’ll find some compassion for your fellow humans.

Of course none of this compares to Jeff Bezos. According to Business Insider, “Per hour, [Bezos] makes a whopping $8,961,000 — that’s roughly 315 times Amazon’s $28,466 median annual worker pay. An Amazon worker earning the $15 minimum wage would need to work 24 hours a day for about 68 years, just to earn what Bezos makes in an hour.”

This level of inequality is unsustainable, unfathomable, unjustifiable, unbelievable, and un-fucking-believable! And while your mainstream corporate media may mention inequality here or there, they never do it justice and they never do it LOUD ENOUGH. Having a little segment about food banks crammed between 18 hours of Biden transition coverage does not count as actually informing people.
If Americans were truly informed, rather than spending our days sitting idly watching reality shows about cakes, we would all be behaving like Khaleel Seivwright. (Granted he’s Canadian but I’ll forgive him for that.)
He’s a 28 year-old carpenter who started building tiny insulated shelters for those without homes. It’s a quick and cheap solution to help people chewed up by unfettered rapacious capitalism, a societal money laundering machine that spits out millions of humans after stealing their savings, their energy, and their youth.
So, just like a good capitalist town, upon realizing what Seivwright was up to, the City of Toronto issued a warning letter to the carpenter to stop building shelters for unhoused people. (Well, if all those poor people get homes, then how will the rest of us know we’re better than them? I suppose we’ll still have our wrist watches, but you can’t tell the brand from very far away.)
Point being, Khaleel Seivwright is a hero, as are so many unheralded activists across this land trying to help those torn up by our system. Bezos and the Waltons and the other CEOs who we seemingly celebrate in our popular culture — they are the villains. And while we continue to fight for a new economy no longer based on death and extinction, we need to build the alternative world we want to see.
“…A new Digital Identification (seed-funded and supported by Rockefeller Foundation with partners like Bill Gates GAVI- the Vaccin Alliance and Microsoft) is being introduced worldwide. It could open up for a future where vaccinated people are allowed to move about more freely while the non-vaccinated will live with restrictions. It is a triumph for World Economic Forum, the tech-giants and their Fourth Industrial Revolution”

“To fail to experience gratitude when walking through the corridors of the Metropolitan Museum, when listening to the music of Bach or Beethoven, when exercising our freedom to speak, or … to give, or withhold, our assent, is to fail to recognize how much we have received from the great wellsprings of human talent and concern that gave us Shakespeare, Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, our parents, our friends. We need a rebirth of gratitude for those who have cared for us, living and, mostly, dead. The high moments of our way of life are their gifts to us. We must remember them in our thoughts and in our prayers; and in our deeds.”
