  1. Plenty of historical material to show the connection between Covid hysteria and witchcraft persecution. You will notice plagues often factor in. So, the anti vaxers are predictably likely to take the place of witches in the modern development of an old story. No-one can say whether targeting of anti-vaxers by authorities will be a purely social inconvenience or develop into a more serious direction. As it is "people" are being blamed for the virus as fear and stupidity cause the more gullible to blame those who resist authoritarianism. Paranoia, hysteria, psychogenic symptoms repeat the same p
  2. Sometimes this all seems a bit pessimistic. These are early days. The people in charge of policy are speedily heading to a dead end. At least with communism something positive could be offered in compensation for post war destruction. Here, that's not the case. I imagine in months to come, wider echelons of society are going to want to know what is the plan? It was the same with Vietnam. Muhammad Ali was the most unpopular man in America but later that changed. Thousands dead or wounded, mass protests and loss of appetite to continue. Give it a year and the penny will drop.
  3. Another headline is the lady on a flight who exploded when asked to wear a mask. She just lost her restraint and yelled about dictatorship. Other passengers supported the security staff and not the lady. This is the problem when you stick up for people who can't see what's obvious.
  4. Yes, this is headlines on Yandex. The deaths in Norway.
  5. My strategy for now is to wait. Current measures at some point will lead to a major social, economic meltdown. More people will then start to ask questions. Whichever way you look at it, the present approach has no permanent back-up system to substitute the erosion of society and the economy. As it is now, a large number if people still feel they're being protected and assisted. Most of these people exhibit symptoms of psychological fear, obvious to a more qualified psychologist. The way they recoil and step back or pull their covers on their mouth. Putting it very bluntly, thousands of people
  6. “It was sunset and I was driving to Kansas from California when I first saw Saltair. It’s an amusement park located at the end of a half-mile causeway out into the Great Salt Lake. The lake had receded and the pavilion with its Moorish towers stood silhouetted against the red sky. I felt I had been transported into a different time and dimension. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I stopped the car and walked out to the pavilion. The hair stood up on the back of my neck. The stark white of the salt beach and the strange dark quiet of the deserted buildings made it the spookiest location I h
  7. Carnival Of Souls is a 1962 movie created by Herk Harvey and stars Candice Hiligoss. When I first saw the film it made a huge impact on me. A huge impression. When I was maybe 11 or 10 years old I had a drowning accident and was as close to death as it gets. The experience was very peaceful and I had no desire to return to my "present". Even so, I suddenly felt a huge kick when someone pulled me out of the water. My mouth was gushing out water with terrible coughs in between and choking. That's how Carnival Of Souls starts, but the "accident" involves a car race over a bridge in Salt Lake City
  8. I would prefer to opt out of visiting any American school or course or whatever. I agree with you money and lack of ethics would sum it up quite well. I had bad experiences with 90 per cent of Americans, especially in the area of psychology. They seem to censor views they don't agree with. There is one very highly rated researcher I met who deletes comments that contradict his essays. In the USA they have an issue with the concept of "debate". This is why I'm so skeptical of these vaccines. These people use the internet for all their research but no basic science.
  9. There's a reclusive Russian Jewish mathematician called Grigory Perelman. He has long finger nails and lived on 100 dollars a month for years. He was shunned by the maths community. On cracking a complex mathematical problem some years ago, he was offered a million dollars. He turned it down and didn't attend the ceremony. He makes no contact with the outside world but does give lectures. He's closer to the original psychopathy diagnostic than Putin who's a social personality and rich.
  10. I don't want to come over as a know-all but..... the term was invented by J. Koch in his book «Die psychopathischen Minderwertigkeiten. That was in the 19th century. The term comes from "psyche" and "pathology". The modern definition of psychopath is unscientific and remote from real psychology. Psychopaths are not necessarily power-driven at all. Many have low levels of emotion and high intellect, often with a high ethical code. Very many are shunned from positions of power as may struggle to relate to others. It is true some become criminals but so do socially motivated people.
  11. Passed Witherspoons today. Defiant notice on bar window. Full article challenging the virus propaganda. Lots of passers by can read it. Nice to know some big businesses are on side.
  12. Not wanting to stray off topic but these days I view America as a lousy model for democracy, in all areas. Repeatedly I've been censored on American academic forums. Not for rudeness or extremism but for simply not agreeing with the accepted trend of thought. On science. These academics argue with emotion and not intellect. They don't write clinically and logically but fire off emotonal value judgements. Simply, they refuse to engage. i So, now Navalny and Merkel have noticed Twitter has banned Trump and are shocked. Welcome to the club. David Icke was banned from his Youtube channel for
  13. I think there's a risk of over-analysis. In Russia it's known how the USA stirred up colour revolutions, or at least tried to encourage dissent. However, I think the Washington uprest was an internal problem. They (America) have never played strategic poker as well as Putin. The idea they're now luring us into a brilliantly planned trap strikes me as a far cry from what's come before. That is, Russia now quite strong (hypersonic missiles) and China set to be the new global powerhouse. Crimea not controlled by Nato, for that matter. Also, Putin gaining in the Middle East. The truth is the
  14. It's a joke really and an experiment. Whether a made in China wig is as good as the 1970s movie actor toupee. They are out of fashion too as the new method is a hair system.
  15. I think the clashes in Barcelona and Madrid were the most dramatic. Major unrest. Parts of Europe could soon approach the level of unrest seen in The Baltics and in Moscow itself back in the early 1990s. That is, prior to the fall of the USSR and emergence of Yeltsin as a new populist leader. The American unrest should have come as a reality check to countries that assume the USA is immune and a predictable harbour to moor up to. As I recall in Moscow there were tanks in the streets with Yeltsin leading the popular revolt. Same issue: remote and corrupt leaders who were swept aside by populi
