Normalizing Social Psychosis

“The word “We” is as lime poured over men, which sets and hardens to stone, and crushes all beneath it, and that which is white and that which is black are lost equally in the grey of it. It is the word by which the depraved steal the virtue of the good, by which the weak steal the might of the strong, by which the fools steal the wisdom of the sages…” ~Ayn Rand – Anthem

Official Reality is Psychotic – You Are Not

Be mainstream. Go along with the mainstream tide. Adopt the position of the mainstream. If you waver, just watch more network news.

A well-known reporter once told me, “We don’t call lying lying. We call it editing.”

You can go back in history as far as you want to, and you’ll find the word WE used over and over by society’s leaders. We must do this, we must do that. We must unify, we must come together. What is this WE?

In the way it’s deployed, it isn’t anything. It’s a grand fiction. It’s the gateway into mind control.

If a hazy WE can replace an accountable, responsible, motivated, creative I, the goose is cooked. Because the WE is sugar for the brain.

As a result of a little thing called the 1960s, WE took over from I. A cooked, frazzled, diluted mix of Asian philosophies and spiritual teachings rolled out on to the scene. WE was now a catchy trendy idea. It gained power. It showed up on the radar of elite propaganda operatives. They were waiting for it, because they had played a role in making it fashionable in the first place.

The op was working. It was gaining traction. WE could replace I in many minds. Among the educated and “hip,” among intellectuals and academics and home-grown spiritual teachers, among Left critics of the establishment, among the drug addled and lazy hangars-on, the entire basis of the American Republic—protecting the freedom and rights of the independent individual—could be undermined. A “superior” WE could be installed.

As the years and decades passed, this notion of the WE—in truth, the Collective—and its requirements, in a “humane civilization,” expanded. “Share and care” took center stage. It reached to gobble up the whole stage.

On every level of society, people were urged to think of themselves as part of the WE—the “greater group.” The individual and his hopes, his unique dreams, his desires and energies, his determination and will power…all these were portrayed as relics of an unworkable and deluded past.

In certain cases, lone pioneers who were innovating in directions that could, in fact, benefit all of humanity, were absorbed into the one body of the collective, heralded as humane…and then dumped on the side of the road with their inventions and forgotten.

In the planned society of WE, no one rises above the mass, except those men who run and operate and propagandize the mass.

Eventually, it would come to something like this: Peter Callero, of the Department of Sociology, Western Oregon University, wrote a book titled: The Myth of Individualism: How Social Forces Shape Our Lives (2013, 2nd Ed). His sentiments and those of his contemporary academics echoed back and forth.

Collero: “Most people today believe that an individual is a person with an independent and distinct identification. This, however, is a myth.”

Really? The historical record shows that a great struggle had been waged, over many centuries, for the liberation of the individual from the WE, the mass, the monolithic group.

And now, on the basis of a modern propagandized fantasy, each one of us should return to the past and embrace the chains of sameness?

Official reality says yes. Official reality says surrender. Official reality says a paradise is waiting for us if we dispense with our uniqueness and individuality.

Official reality is psychotic. Because the WE does not recognize YOU.

“One of the methods used by statists to destroy capitalism consists in establishing controls that tie a given industry hand and foot, making it unable to solve its problems, then declaring that freedom has failed and stronger controls are necessary.” –Ayn Rand

Educational Reformatories

American schools mimicking prisons while preparing students for success in a dystopian future.

The primary objective still is not to teach students skills they need to succeed in society but rather to relieve tensions and generate funds to pay the costs of their detention.

“Can you sacrifice the few? When those few are the best? Deny the best it’s right to the top–and you have no best left. What are the masses but millions of dull, shrivelled, stagnant souls that have no thoughts of their own, who eat and sleep and chew helplessly the words others put into their brains? And for those who would sacrifice the few who know life, who are life? I loathe your ideals because I know no worse injustice than the giving of the undeserved. Because men are not equal in ability and one can’t treat them as if they were.”


“What is the state but a servant and a convenience for a large number of people, just like the electric light and the plumbing system? And wouldn’t it be preposterous to claim that men must exist for their plumbing, not the plumbing for the men?”

—Ayn Rand, We the living

“The truth is not for all men, but only for those who seek it.”

Contemplation: 2016/10/23

When we are faced with a very difficult situation we have a choice: we can either be resentful, and try to find somebody or something to blame for the hardships, or we can face the challenge and grow. A passion for life leads us out of the darkness and into the light. There is no point fighting against the challenges of life, or trying to avoid or deny them.

The Inner Voice speaks not in words but in the wordless language of the heart. It is like an oracle who only speaks the truth. It’s clarity comes from transcending all dualities.

There are times in our lives when too many voices seem to be pulling us this way and that. Our very confusion in such situations is a reminder to seek silence and centering within. Only then are we able to hear our truth.

Thus, finding the truth within, there is nothing more in this whole existence to find. Truth is functioning through us. When we open our eyes, it is truth opening the eyes. When we close our eyes, it is truth who is closing its eyes.


The veil of illusion that has been keeping us from perceiving reality as it is, is starting to burn away. The fire is not the heated fire of passion, but the cool flame of awareness.

The awareness that is growing is not the result of any conscious ‘doing’, nor is there a need to struggle to make something happen. Any sense that we’ve been groping in the dark is dissolving now, or will be dissolving soon.

This mind provides a sort of stupor. Burdened by the memories of the past, burdened by the projections of the future, we go on living – at the minimum, instead of living at the maximum. Thus our flame remains very dim.

By dropping corrosive thoughts, the flame rekindles, and arises.  Life becomes a purely renewed flame without any smoke. This is what awareness is.


However, this is what happens by forgetting that the mind is meant to be a servant, and we allow it to run our lives. The head is filled with mechanisms, the mouth is ranting and raving, and the whole surrounding atmosphere is being polluted by this factory of arguments and cesspool of opinions. But wait – Isn’t the mind what makes us human, isn’t it’ the source of all progress, all great truths?

Meditate or pray for a moment by allowing thoughts to come out without any censorship or editing, it will be amazing the amount of rubbish that presents itself. This is the situation of our head: there is no space in which to live in! And all that rubbish and pollution keeps living in our head – it keeps us occupied, or distracted to the point it eventually evicts us, if we allow it.

What goes on inside our mind, is constantly present, it surrounds us like a fog. With this fog we can’t know reality; we are unable to attain spiritual perception. This fog must be burned off. And it is only with our decision to recognize it, that it will disappear. If we persist in clinging to it, it envelopes us and we lose our sense of direction, and not recognizing or knowing that the fog is not the least interested in us. We must remember this, lest we be gravely deceived.

Strength and Courage

A seed cannot know what is going to happen, the seed has never known the tree or  flower. And the seed cannot even believe that it has the potentiality to become a strong tree or beautiful flower. Long is the journey, and it is always safer not to go on that journey because unknown is the path, nothing is guaranteed.

Nothing can be guaranteed.  A thousand and one are the hazards of the journey, many are the pitfalls–and the seed is secure, hidden inside a hard core. But the seed tries, it makes an effort; it drops the hard shell which is its security, it starts moving.

Immediately the fight starts: the struggle with the soil, with the stones, with the rocks. And the seed was very hard and the sprout will be very, very soft and dangers will be many. There was no danger for the seed, the seed could have survived for millennia, but for the sprout many are the dangers. But the sprout starts towards the unknown, towards the sun, towards the source of light, not knowing where, not knowing why.

Great is the cross to be carried, but a dream possesses the seed and the seed moves. The same is the path for man. It is arduous. Much courage will be needed.


The innocence that comes from a deep experience of life is childlike, but not childish. The innocence of children is beautiful, but ignorant. It will be replaced by mistrust and doubt as the child grows and learns that the world can be a dangerous and threatening place. But the innocence of a life lived fully has a quality of wisdom and acceptance of the ever-changing wonder of life.

If we drop all that has been given by others, we will have a totally different quality to our being–innocence. This will be a crucifixion of the persona, the ego and its personality, and therein will be a resurrection of  innocence; we will become a child again, a being reborn.

Biological Health Hazard – Hepatitis A (HAV) Outbreak (public health threat): U.S. (9 States)

October 17. 2016
Outbreak News Today

In a follow-up on the multistate hepatitis A outbreak linked to frozen strawberries used in smoothies at Tropical Smoothie Café locations prior to August 8, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported this week updated data on the outbreak.

As of October 17, 2016, 134 people with hepatitis A have been reported from nine states: Arkansas (1), California (1), Maryland (12), New York (3), North Carolina (1), Oregon (1), Virginia (107), West Virginia (7), and Wisconsin (1).

52 ill people have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.

Federal health officials say this; however, does  not indicate an ongoing risk of acquiring hepatitis A virus infection at Tropical Smoothie Café’s, as the contaminated food product has been removed as of August 8. Symptoms of hepatitis A virus infection can take up to 50 days to appear.

Epidemiologic and traceback evidence indicate frozen strawberries imported from Egypt are the likely source of this outbreak.

On August 8, 2016, Tropical Smoothie Café reported that they removed the Egyptian frozen strawberries from their restaurants in Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia and switched to another supplier. Out of an abundance of caution, Tropical Smoothie Café has since switched to another supplier for all restaurants nationwide.

The prepared foods section at Whole Foods’ Detroit [Michigan] store on Mack Avenue is linked to 2 recent cases of hepatitis A, the Detroit health department announced today, 20 Oct 2016. The department is asking anyone who ate prepared foods at the store from 6-12 Oct 2016 to speak to a doctor and seek preventative treatment.

“While it remains unclear exactly how either of these individuals contracted hepatitis A, and we know that Whole Foods Market Detroit has a comprehensive food safety protocol, we want to do our best to protect our residents and those of surrounding communities who may have been exposed,” said Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, executive director of the Detroit health department.

Hepatitis A, a contagious liver disease, can be spread when ingesting food or drink infected with the hepatitis A virus. Symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, yellow eyes and skin and dark urine, according to the city’s health department.

[According to another report (, one case was diagnosed in an employee who handles prepared food at the store and the other was a customer who ate prepared food. It is possible that the food preparer also ingested the food vehicle rather than contaminating it. The time of onset of the 2 cases can help differentiate the 2 scenarios. Either way, additional cases are likely to occur. Many cases of acute hepatitis A are asymptomatic or anicteric (not jaundice) and may not be diagnosed. Intervention early in the incubation period with HAV vaccine or immune globulin can mitigate or prevent the infection. – Mod.LL

Biological Health Hazard – Epidemic situation: Venezuela

Venezuela malaria cases continue surge, 80% in Bolivar state

October 17. 2016
Outbreak News Today

In a follow-up on the malaria epidemic situation in Venezuela, the president of the Medical Federation of Venezuela (FMV), Douglas Leon Natera said Monday that the country recorded more than 180,000 cases of malaria, according to a El Nacional report today (computer translated).

Eighty percent of the cases have been reported in Bolivar state.

Leon Natera said malaria had been eradicated in Venezuela 50 years ago and now reappears in Bolivar state in ‘immensely alarming numbers’.

It is important to note the Venezuelan government has been quiet about all the outbreaks in the country–malaria, Zika, dengue and diphtheria–and the Epidemiological Bulletin has not been published for a lengthy period.

The Real Cost of Utopian Schemes – “A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.”

CLINTON: “So what I am proposing is that we invest from the middle out and the ground up, not the top down.”

Clinton’s middle-out economic experimentation is what the media should be harping on. First thing there is no evidence middle-out has ever worked, anywhere. No state, no other country. Next, there are fewer Americans in middle class due to this approach by the last President. The media is obviously too wrapped up in diminishing Trump to fact-check middle-out economics.

Why are there no fact-checks? We just got to take Clinton’s word because she said it? How many reporters are reporting on the same topic? No one gets out of the box to put the American People first?

Middle-out is just another liberal Utopia. Economist may be able to observe middle-out growth in an economy after it happens, but to say you can grow an economy from the middle-out is experimental and never been proven. The middle class first need jobs to be middle class.

We need massive economic growth. Simply put, the more you take from the private sector the smaller the private sector. Doesn’t matter if your Clinton or Obama. Government had record year-over-year revenues to the Treasury with lower rates, and that can be proven. And the best costumer for a small business is a big business. What small business wouldn’t want an order from big business?

I suppose I should keep my response short, but I’m afraid after this post middle-out economics won’t be discussed before the election. And look at unemployment number this Democrat President gets, as much as they want the unemployment number to reflect a great economy, it’s been devastating for many, too many.

I’ve waited all week for an article, but none really, a couple of old ones from Obama’s campaign rhetoric days. So I’ve had to post debate transcript instead. Clinton wants to impose a Nationalize Utopian economic growth strategy that’s never been proven to work and not one report in the news.

What economist say’s middle-out growth works? The same economist that says government stimulus will cause more economic growth? When are the media going to challenge any economist to discuss if middle-out growth is an observation or a growth strategy?

You can’t predict economic growth just because tax code is more favorable to people in middle income situations. What if, as is now happening, the middle class just keeps getting smaller? How can any Democrat be ahead when their economic ideas are just experimental and never proven to work? Can’t Republicans at least win that argument? Oh, the press wouldn’t report it if they did…

‘Middle-out’ economics trumped ‘trickle-down’ on Nov. 6 – Now policies should reflect that
Note the source: Byline David Madland, Center for American Progress via The Hill

In reading this old article never any evidence, always a poll that says middle-out economics works, and a claim the public agrees with what economist have been saying…Which economist? Someone working for a democrat campaign?

As for Utopian Schemes:

Obamacare, a.k.a.  Affordable Care Act (ACA)

It’s a tax not a penalty (or something)

Case in Point – More media-driven drivel (or something)

As Republican campaign headquarters are being vandalized and firebombed, and where wilful violence and riots are being instigated by the opposing socialist democratic party and their present folks in the white house, The AP lead with a (post-debate) story that will be carried across much of America’s newspaper this morning:

Threatening to upend a fundamental pillar of American democracy, Donald Trump refused to say Wednesday night that he will accept the results of next month’s election if he loses to Hillary Clinton. The Democratic nominee declared Trump’s resistance “horrifying.”Trump’s assertions raise the prospect that millions of his supporters may not accept the results on Nov. 8 if he loses, thrusting the nation into uncharted territory. Free and fair elections, with the vanquished peacefully stepping aside for the victor, have been the underpinning of America’s democratic tradition since the country’s founding 240 years ago. (Except maybe when democrats Al Gore and Al Franken previously did it.)

[Perhaps more accurate analogies to the question posed could be, “If you were to get raped at some point in the future, will you agree in advance to keep your mouth shut about it?” Or, asking an athlete before he runs a race if he would please affirm now that no cheating took place, and that the contest had been fairly judged by race officials?]
