In March, it was just a three-week lockdown, to flatten the curve so
as not to overwhelm the NHS.
The narrative has quickly
evolved. It has progressed from what seemed a reasonable idea of
keeping NHS bed space free based on the completely false
Neil Ferguson prediction that
hospitals would be overwhelmed by patients suffering from
This never happened...
Many weeks passed where
face masks were not needed and then suddenly in July, long after the
majority of supposed COVID-19 deaths had occurred,
face masks were made compulsory.
Indeed, the UK government advice from the likes of Chris Whitty
and the World Health Organization (WHO) was that,
face masks were not
effective in stopping the spread of COVID-19 or in contracting
it; science does not change that quick - anyone who tells you
otherwise is a liar...
The result is that we
have now fallen deep into a Covidian Cult, a
totalitarian psychotic narrative that has little connection to
reality or to the facts.
The opposition to official government narratives regarding COVID-19
are well known. I will not bother again telling you what is already
known or can be readily ascertained.
Suffice to say, one just needs to type into Google "The
Great Barrington Declaration" or ACU2020, where one can
read about the doctors, scientists and lawyers who are opposing
multi-governmental COVID-19 restrictions and laws of,
...amongst other things.
Their essential argument, contra the multi-government policy on
COVID-19, is that virus is not the danger we are being told it is;
the data on COVID-19 is clear:
we do not need to
lockdown society, wreck the economy, or frighten people into
death as they are scared to leave home for fear of catching
COVID-19 or seek medical treatment for non-COVID-19 illness,
which has happened...
doctors and scientists argue that,
face masks are not protective
and could be very harmful...
Dr Jay Bhattacharya,
a signatory of the Great Barrington Declaration, which 40,000
medical, public health scientists and medical practitioners have
signed, said that the use of face masks are not supported in the
There is no
randomized data to indicate if they are effective in reducing
the spread of COVID-19.
Indeed, face masks have no effectiveness in the spread of
This is backed up by
the fact that social distancing and face masks have not made a
difference on yearly rate of influenza deaths in the UK.
On the 15th
October 2020 the stark reality that we are being led by a
psychotic Covidian cult narrative became even more evident:
Nicola Sturgeon, the
First Minister of Scotland, announced with great glee that
couples marrying would no longer have to wear face masks when
tying the knot.
Of course, the
Priest, Vicar, or Registrar etc. conducting the ceremonies never
had to wear a mask to conduct the marriage ceremony.
What kind of
political leader would impose on couples, who for all intent
and purposes will be living together and spending the night
together after the wedding, have to wear a mask during their
Would a mask be
required for the happy couple to consummate their marriage
on their wedding night?
This ridiculous face mask
rule imposed by
Nicola Sturgeon shows quite
clearly the dark side of Scottish politics.
It is ridiculous because
Nicola Sturgeon (as well as all the other MSP's and Holyrood staff)
has met many people from other households indoors in parliament
(before and after face masks were imposed), whilst at the same time
continually telling the masses that they cannot meet people from
other households indoors.
One rule for me, one for
The paranoid fuelled COVID-19 rules delivered by Sturgeon on a daily
basis during the week and even reiterated on her twitter account on
a frequent basis, and the blatant inconsistent and illogical nature
of these rules, are not meant to console or comfort the masses.
No, they are a deliberate
attempt to disorientate and control the minds of the masses.
Cult leaders do this
to their followers to short circuit their critical thinking.
Cult leaders will
also change the rules or the narrative at a whim for no apparent
Hence the change of now
being able to get married without a face mask, even though the
COVID-19 restrictions are being tightened again all over the UK; it
makes no sense, its not meant to, and the masses are meant to
follow, not question and obey.
Cult leaders want to make the masses follow chaos.
This kind behavior is equally applicable to the realm of BDSM
(bondage, domination, sado-masochism) or the Master-Slave
dialectic. In the world of BDSM, a master or mistress will
impose illogical rules, but demand to be obeyed.
As a slave in BDSM
scenario might say,
"Mistress is correct
even when Mistress is wrong".
This forms the basis for
a human subject becoming an object, of becoming alienated from
This logical structure
underpins the dictates from politicians in relation to COVID-19
The blatant flaunting of
the dictates by the likes of,
...and the many more we
have not heard about yet, is testament to the fact that they don't
really take this COVID-19 restrictions all that seriously.
This abusive objectification and alienation are what totalitarians
and cult leaders want to achieve and impose on their followers.
Initiation rituals like
mask wearing (especially when getting married) and social
distancing, attack a person with terror, pain, humiliation and
Of course, anyone who has
been in an abusive relationship will tell you that pointless rituals
or behaviors are demanded by the abusive and sadistic abusive
partner to wear the other person down.
As is so often found in cults and individuals in abusive
relationships, the cult members or abused partner will even go to
great lengths to defend the cult leader's demands or the person who
In our current
predicament, this is highly ironic as the Scottish government have
recently introduced psychological abuse as a crime.
This abusive dialectic that is playing out between the UK
government/Scottish government/devolved assemblies and the masses
might explain why so many people cannot perceive the totalitarianism
that is being inflicted upon them right in front of them, or right
on their faces in the guise of masks and up till recently masked up
in front of the alter getting married.
The problem we have is this: people generally find it very difficult
to recognize the delusional nature of a totalitarian master
One case in point was
was a prevalent characteristic of people during these times...
People who cannot see the
totalitarian moves made upon them are not ignorant or unintelligent;
have been initiated into a cult
through the methods of initiation, chaos, confusion and the short
circuiting of critical thinking.
We are being initiated and conditioned for a future way of life
where there will be no return to normality, and it has
nothing to do with a virus.
This is why children are
being socially distanced in schools, are made to wear masks in
certain contexts, are treated like bio-hazards by their teachers and
are frightened half to death by being made to obsessively wash their
hands multiple times a day with an abrasive hand sanitizer.
Drawing on psychoanalytic thought, such directives pushed onto
children will ensure that many children will grow up to be socially
anxious and fearful of social interaction.
It begs belief that the
Adverse Childhood Experiences "movement" (ACEs) in Scotland
are utterly silent about the harms being committed upon children as
a result of these scientifically challengeable COVID-19 restrictions
As the Centre for
Disease Control state, the survival rate estimates for people
aged 0-19 years for COVID-19 is 99.997%, 20-49 years is 99.98%,
50-69 years 99.5%, and 70 years+ 94.6% respectively.
And now we have a
casedemic where the rates of false positives (89%-94% of
positives potentially false) and the PCR test does not even test
for COVID-19 (See ACU, 2020).
Of course, the
politicians ignore the fact that the
PCR test was never intended to be a
diagnostic instrument to be used to inform public health policy,
never mind mandate it.
The culture of de-individuation that the totalitarian abusive
cult-like rituals of social distancing, mask wearing and not being
able to meet people freely is also primed to be ramped up even
Nicola Sturgeon has
stated that she is considering face masks to be compulsory even in
outside spaces-seven months into this COVID-19 nightmare-another
illogical and ridiculous idea with no basis in science.
We are now entering a precarious tipping point:
not from the virus,
but from de-individuated members of the cult slavishly following
these new rules and not challenging the wearing of masks
No doubt the "nudging"
from the Government will work a treat on the masses
This is because the UK and Scottish governments are manipulating,
coercing and frightening us into following the rules and shaming us
when we don't.
The UK and Scottish
Governments are using applied behavioral psychology, breaking
the ethical guidelines for psychologists, to deliberately ramp
up fear in the population.
A group of psychologists
called Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviours (SPI-B)
of SAGE have been tasked with advising the UK and Scottish
Governments how to get people to adhere to COVID-19 restrictions.
From their document which is freely available on
the UK Government website, it is
"A substantial number
of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened."
"The perceived level
of personal threat needs to be increased among
those who are complacent, using hard-hitting emotional

and the UK government knew fear alone would not be enough...
suggested to government to use and promote social approval for
desired behaviors, to consider enacting legislation to compel
required behaviors, and to consider the use of social disapproval
for failure to comply.
They have used the
Mainstream Media and
Social media, along with false
fact-checking and censorship to get their message across
and it has been working.
The tactics of the SPI-B psychologists informing UK and Scottish
Governments' policies on the COVID-19 response are in my opinion
contrary to the ethical and practice guidelines of The British
Psychological Society (BPS); the psychology equivalent of the
Hippocratic oath for medicine.
The mainstream media are silent on these unethical practices of
deliberately ramping up people's sense of personal threat, creating
a culture of feeling shame to follow COVID-19 regulations and
encouraging people to shame others for not following regulations.

Unfortunately, at the moment there is not enough people (especially
politicians and mainstream media journalists) with the necessary
courage to call out the tyranny and call out the abuser.
Historically this has
also been a problem, politically and within an abusive context
(e.g., the victim finds great difficulty calling out their abuser).
In a critical remark and
warning to the West, Alexander Solzhenitsyn said in his
Harvard address in 1973:
A decline in
courage may be the most striking feature which an outside
observer notices in the West in our days.

to) point out that from ancient times declining courage has
been considered the beginning of the end...?"

to wake up to the dictatorial and totalitarian measures?
