The Covidian Cult Exposed: Six Conditions Of Mind Control

Authored by CJ Hopkins via The Consent Factory,

Back in October of 2020, I wrote an essay called The Covidian Cult, in
which I described the so-called “New Normal” as a global totalitarian
ideological movement.

Developments over the last six months have borne out the accuracy of
that analogy.

“instead of the cult existing as an island within the dominant
culture, the cult has become the dominant culture, and those of us who
have not joined the cult have become the isolated islands within it?”

To understand this, one needs to understand how cults control the
minds of their members, because totalitarian ideological movements
operate more or less the same way, just on a much larger, societal

1. Keep the person unaware of what is going on and how she or he is
being changed a step at a time. Potential new members are led, step by
step, through a behavioral-change program without being aware of the
final agenda or full content of the group.
2. Control the person’s social and/or physical environment; especially
control the person’s time.
3. Systematically create a sense of powerlessness in the person.
4. Manipulate a system of rewards, punishments and experiences in such
a way as to inhibit behavior that reflects the person’s former social
5. Manipulate a system of rewards, punishments, and experiences in
order to promote learning the group’s ideology or belief system and
group-approved behaviors. Good behavior, demonstrating an
understanding and acceptance of the group’s beliefs, and compliance
are rewarded, while questioning, expressing doubts or criticizing are
met with disapproval, redress and possible rejection. If one expresses
a question, they are made to feel that there is something inherently
wrong with them to be questioning.
6. Put forth a closed system of logic and an authoritarian structure
that permits no feedback and refuses to be modified except by
leadership approval or executive order. The group has a top-down,
pyramid structure. The leaders must have verbal ways of never losing.


Is The UK's "War On Pubs" About Silencing Dissent?

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

A university teacher has published a fascinating article in which he
argues that the shut down of pubs in the United Kingdom is about
silencing dissent.

The article by Sean Walsh, which was carried by LockdownSkeptics,
questions why pubs are still semi-closed while other “non-essential
retail” stores are allowed to fully open despite the fact that the
entire hospitality industry was responsible for just 3 per cent of
total COVID infections last year.

    “It’s tempting to conclude that the SAGE types are not worried
that pubs are possible vectors of transmission, but that they are
concerned that hospitality venues are potential theatres of dissent,”
writes Walsh.

He also notes that health bureaucrats seem to be intent on the British
public remaining joyless as part of some demented puritanical drive to
oversee the “crude sanitisation of our understanding of the human

Walsh accurately identifies the pub not just as a place of fun and
frivolity, but an organizing forum where populist sentiment takes

    “It is in the pub that people can whisper conspiracy against a
Government narrative. And conspiracies always require that the
like-minded are allowed to gather. It is over a drink that the
millionaire and the pauper can come together and compare notes,” he

“(Boris) Johnson is currently offering us a sinister inversion of what
a pub is, one in which you are tracked, traced, audited, judged, and
humiliated. The “road map”, in this industry at least, is one that
leads you not into “normal” but into a “Twin Peaks” version of it,”
adds Walsh.

He concludes by arguing that if the government was trying to build a
police state, one of the first things it would do is to “stamp on the
enjoyment of the great unwashed and confiscate all mechanisms of

    “The Government’s war on pubs is ticking both those boxes,” writes Walsh.

One has to question whether government efforts to punish pubs while
allowing throngs of crowds to gather outside retail outlets goes
deeper than health considerations given the minimal contribution bars
and restaurants had to the spread of the virus.

Could the war on pubs have also been a deliberate attempt to prevent
people from coming together to pierce the monopoly control the media
wielded over the entire lockdown narrative?

As we highlighted yesterday, many pub landlords are infuriated with
the attack on their livelihoods, leading in one case to an owner
kicking out Labour leader Keir Starmer after a heated confrontation
about his party’s support for lockdown.
