The Covidian Cult

One of the hallmarks of totalitarianism is mass conformity to a psychotic official narrative. Not a regular official narrative, like the “Cold War” or the “War on Terror” narratives. A totally delusional official narrative that has little or no connection to reality and that is contradicted by a preponderance of facts.

Nazism and Stalinism are the classic examples, but the phenomenon is better observed in cults and other sub-cultural societal groups. Numerous examples will spring to mind: the Manson family, Jim Jones’ People’s Temple, the Church of Scientology, Heavens Gate, etc., each with its own psychotic official narrative: Helter Skelter, Christian Communism, Xenu and the Galactic Confederacy, and so on.

Looking in from the dominant culture (or back through time in the case of the Nazis), the delusional nature of these official narratives is glaringly obvious to most rational people. What many people fail to understand is that to those who fall prey to them (whether individual cult members or entire totalitarian societies) such narratives do not register as psychotic. On the contrary, they feel entirely normal. Everything in their social “reality” reifies and reaffirms the narrative, and anything that challenges or contradicts it is perceived as an existential threat.

These narratives are invariably paranoid, portraying the cult as threatened or persecuted by an evil enemy or antagonistic force which only unquestioning conformity to the cult’s ideology can save its members from. It makes little difference whether this antagonist is mainstream culture, body thetans, counter-revolutionaries, Jews, or a virus. The point is not the identity of the enemy. The point is the atmosphere of paranoia and hysteria the official narrative generates, which keeps the cult members (or the society) compliant.

In addition to being paranoid, these narratives are often internally inconsistent, illogical, and … well, just completely ridiculous. This does not weaken them, as one might suspect. Actually, it increases their power, as it forces their adherents to attempt to reconcile their inconsistency and irrationality, and in many cases utter absurdity, in order to remain in good standing with the cult. Such reconciliation is of course impossible, and causes the cult members’ minds to short circuit and abandon any semblance of critical thinking, which is precisely what the cult leader wants.

Moreover, cult leaders will often radically change these narratives for no apparent reason, forcing their cult members to abruptly forswear (and often even denounce as “heresy”) the beliefs they had previously been forced to profess, and behave as if they had never believed them, which causes their minds to further short circuit, until they eventually give up even trying to think rationally, and just mindlessly parrot whatever nonsensical gibberish the cult leader fills their heads with.

Also, the cult leader’s nonsensical gibberish is not as nonsensical as it may seem at first. Most of us, upon encountering such gibberish, assume that the cult leader is trying to communicate, and that something is very wrong with his brain. The cult leader isn’t trying to communicate. He is trying to disorient and control the listener’s mind. Listen to Charlie Manson “rapping.” Not just to what he says, but how he says it. Note how he sprinkles bits of truth into his stream of free-associated nonsense, and his repetitive use of thought-terminating clichés, described by Robert J. Lifton as follows:

“The language of the totalist environment is characterized by the thought-terminating cliché. The most far-reaching and complex of human problems are compressed into brief, highly selective, definitive-sounding phrases, easily memorized and easily expressed. They become the start and finish of any ideological analysis.” — Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism: : A Study of “Brainwashing” in China, 1961

If all this sounds familiar, good. Because the same techniques that most cult leaders use to control the minds of the members of their cults are used by totalitarian systems to control the minds of entire societies: Milieu Control, Loaded Language, Sacred Science, Demand for Purity, and other standard mind-control techniques. It can happen to pretty much any society, just as anyone can fall prey to a cult, given the right set of circumstances.

It is happening to most of our societies right now. An official narrative is being implemented. A totalitarian official narrative. A totally psychotic official narrative, no less delusional than that of the Nazis, or the Manson family, or any other cult.

Most people cannot see that it is happening, for the simple reason that it is happening to them. They are literally unable to recognize it. The human mind is extremely resilient and inventive when it is pushed past its limits. Ask anyone who has struggled with psychosis or has taken too much LSD. We do not recognize when we are going insane. When reality falls apart completely, the mind will create a delusional narrative, which appears just as “real” as our normal reality, because even a delusion is better than the stark raving terror of utter chaos.

This is what totalitarians and cult leaders count on, and exploit to implant their narratives in our minds, and why actual initiation rituals (as opposed to purely symbolic rituals) begin by attacking the subject’s mind with terror, pain, physical exhaustion, psychedelic drugs, or some other means of obliterating the subject’s perception of reality. Once that is achieved, and the subject’s mind starts desperately trying to construct a new narrative to make sense out of the cognitive chaos and psychological trauma it is undergoing, it is relatively easy to “guide” that process and implant whatever narrative you want, assuming you have done your homework.

And this is why so many people — people who are able to easily recognize totalitarianism in cults and foreign countries — cannot perceive the totalitarianism that is taking shape now, right in front of their faces (or, rather, right inside their minds). Nor can they perceive the delusional nature of the official “Covid-19” narrative, no more than those in Nazi Germany were able to perceive how completely delusional their official “master race” narrative was. Such people are neither ignorant nor stupid. They have been successfully initiated into a cult, which is essentially what totalitarianism is, albeit on a societal scale.

Their initiation into the Covidian Cult began in January, when the medical authorities and corporate media turned on The Fear with projections of hundreds of millions of deaths and fake photos of people dropping dead in the streets. The psychological conditioning has continued for months. The global masses have been subjected to a constant stream of propaganda, manufactured hysteria, wild speculation, conflicting directives, exaggerations, lies, and tawdry theatrical effects. Lockdowns. Emergency field hospitals and morgues. The singing-dancing NHS staff. Death trucks. Overflowing ICUs. Dead Covid babies. Manipulated statistics. Goon squads. Masks. And all the rest of it.

Eight months later, here we are. The Head of the Health Emergencies Program at the WHO has basically confirmed an IFR of 0.14%, approximately the same as the seasonal flu. And here are the latest survival rate estimates from the Center for Disease Control:

  • Age 0-19 … 99.997%
  • Age 20-49 … 99.98%
  • Age 50-69 … 99.5%
  • Age 70+ … 94.6%

The “science” argument is officially over. An increasing number of doctors and medical experts are breaking ranks and explaining how the current mass hysteria over “cases” (which now includes perfectly healthy people) is essentially meaningless propaganda, for example, in this segment on ARD, one of the big mainstream German TV channels.

And then there is the existence of Sweden, and other countries which are not playing ball with the official Covid-19 narrative, which makes a mockery of the ongoing hysteria.

I’m not going to go on debunking the narrative. The point is, the facts are all available. Not from “conspiracy theorist” websites. From mainstream outlets and medical experts. From the Center for Fucking Disease Control.

Which does not matter in the least, not to the members of the Covidian Cult. Facts do not matter to totalitarians and cult members. What matters is loyalty to the cult or the party.

Which means we have a serious problem, those of us to whom facts still matter, and who have been trying to use them to convince the Covidian cultists that they are wrong about the virus … for going on eight months at this point.

While it is crucial to continue reporting the facts and sharing them with as many people as possible — which is becoming increasingly difficult due to the censorship of alternative and social media — it is important to accept what we are up against. What we are up against is not a misunderstanding or a rational argument over scientific facts. It is a fanatical ideological movement. A global totalitarian movement … the first of its kind in human history.

It isn’t national totalitarianism, because we’re living in a global capitalist empire, which isn’t ruled by nation-states, but rather, by supranational entities and the global capitalist system itself. And thus, the cult/culture paradigm has been inverted. 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.

I wish I could be more optimistic, and maybe offer some sort of plan of action, but the only historical parallel I can think of is how Christianity “converted” the pagan world … which doesn’t really bode so well for us. While you’re sitting at home during the “second wave” lockdowns, you might want to brush up on that history.

  1. All quite true and rather hair-raising. Although astonishingly hard to understand and accept for those of us who seem to have been born with a predilection for facts and reality.

    1. Sorry that the formatting was lost in my previous comment. There should be spacing between columns. Nevertheless, I think the message can be made out: total deaths from all causes in 2020 have been the same as those for 2017, 2018 and 2019 to within less than 1%.

    2. I am not a Covid cultist, but Bill Sardi’s claim that total deaths for 2020 will be fewer than 2019 is wrong. Here is the proof. The average weekly death rate in 2019 is 2,855,000/52=54,900. According to the CDC, the weekly death rate in 2020 has not been that low in any week. The peak death rate occurred on April 11th, when 78,919 died. It is impossible that fewer people will die in 2020 than 2019. In fact, according to the CDC there have been 12% more deaths in 2020 than would be expected in a ‘normal’ year. That means about 200,000 more people have died this year than would be expected.

      1. What matters is total deaths as a percentage of the population.

        At present the overall INCREASE in mortality RATES for 2020 is on par with 2019- actually slightly lower by a miniscule amount. However both 2019 and 2020 are both lower in mortality INCREASES than the previous 5 years.

        You need to look at trends not isolated years. These INCREASES (not good) in mortality RATES have occurred in the US for 12 consecutive years- dating back to 2008. Before that there were DECREASES in mortality rates for 20 straight years.

        What this points to is the change in US mortality rates being directly attributable to deteriorating economic conditions following the 2008 Recession.

        There was no aberrant epidemiological event this year. There were massive policy shifts that created a spike in deaths for a concentrated period in March.April for a specific group of individuals- mainly those in nursing homes. Those were/are crimes.

      2. Using evidence doesn’t work here I think. Facts don’t matter to most people who unthinkingly agree with articles like Hopkiins’.
        (Reading the article, I noted how much of a mushy terrain the article’s arguments are to engage with critical thinking – it uses accurate concepts, but the overall truth of the concepts doesn’t make them true to this current situation, nor does it make the applied analysis true. It is helpful to look at what rhetorical techniques he’s used).

        But the “These narratives are invariably paranoid… only unquestioning conformity to the cult’s ideology can save its members from” does seem an accurate description of something – but applied where? – maybe it is a lashing out at his own shadow. Interesting how Tom Welsh posted those false statistics then the next comment is all about the unquestioning belief.

The point is the atmosphere of paranoia and hysteria the official narrative generates, which keeps the cult members (or the society) compliant”.

    The creation of an implacable and terrifying external enemy does not just meet the needs of totalitarian governments. Before Hitler’s rise to power, there was already a strong suspicion that fear of “the alien” might actually be essential to keep any society from flying apart as a result of its own internal conflicts. History is crammed with examples of secure and relatively peaceful societies that have reacted to their apparently ideal situation by spontaneously starting violent and vicious civil wars. The Greens and the Blues in Byzantium, for example; or the USA today.

    Sigmund Freud rather pessimistically examined these ideas in “Civilization and its Discontents”.

    Written in 1930, when the great man was 74 and widely considered one of the geniuses of the age, this is the third last of Freud’s 22 books. It is often said to express his feelings of despair, following the Great War, as to whether human beings could be well governed at all. After all, the powerful subconscious drives of aggression and sex militate against any form of subordination, even to laws and customs. According to the well-established principles of psychoanalysis, he traces the religious impulse back to the infant’s early feeling of “universality” before he is forced to understand that there is an outside world that is not subject to his will. In contrast to this harsh, ineluctable “reality principle” the adult mind, according to Freud, continues to be fuelled by the “pleasure principle” – the pursuit of enjoyment. And he admits that social constraints force the dilution of the pleasure principle, because a person acting out of pure selfishness is apt to be resented, disciplined, or shunned by other people. It’s possible, Freud remarks, to gain a kind of satisfaction by taming the instincts – a plan he identifies with Buddhism – or to sublimate them into intellectual and artistic pursuits (although at the cost of a certain attenuation).

    Civilization and culture, then, are essential to a balanced life. Without them, we would have chaos. Yet we cannot help resenting them, feeling oppressed and caged by them. He concludes that human beings can be made to cooperate and even treat one another decently; but only when they are given an external, alien enemy on whom to vent their aggression. This conclusion could have come straight out of “Mein Kampf”.

  4. Manson is expounding the hippy version of the universal creed ‘hooray for our side’. I was a very black and white teenager. There were the good people and there were the straights. Good people took drugs and dressed like the summer of love. Straights dressed like TV news anchors and politicians.

    Manson attacks the system and contrasts it with his family brought together in love from the broken society outside.He refused to deal with what happened, only that ‘I never killed anyone’.

    “The World Health Organization’s special envoy on COVID-19 Dr. David Nabarro in an interview stated lockdowns are not helpful as the primary means to control COVID-19. He advocated a middle path which means holding the virus at bay whilst keeping economy and social life going. It would require “high level of organisation by governments and remarkable degree of engagement of people” with robust infectious disease control services or public health. He emphasised on combining of several measures such as “physical distancing , face protection, hygiene, isolating the ill and protecting the vulnerable” as an effective method.

    Calling them a cult, to label and separate people who beleive media into an us v them narrative is to make people who don’t believe in covid the big lie feel superior.

    You want a plan of action heres one:.
    Be as kind, compassionate and loving as you can.
    See what has happened is that people in fear and ignorance have ACTED in fear and ignorance.Key here to learn is the inner state determines the outer, the mind controllers know this that we are co creators we are not powerless . Its just we do not understand the laws of the world that they hide and use to control.

    Covid is a mental virus( thought form) they were infected with it by media using fear to freeze their brains.

    Covid is not an ideology.

    Culture is just a set of beliefs.
    Belief in covid is not cultural, the media propagated the Big Lie creating a belief in a new disease( from a new non existent virus) that does not exist.

    We have a political and economic monopoly we don’t have capitalism, ask all the small businesses that are ruined /bankrupt if you need a word pointer its banksterism.

    Did you know that the CDC had no proof of a threat( an isolated and transmissible new virus ).

It is all a well-planned concept used with absurb, unproven science/data to brainwash most of the world into believing it exist— creating a nonsensical fear and mass compliance to evil restrictions. We must try and wake up as many people to the truth as possible who are in a zombetic trance.
    Nobody would even know there was an alleged “new” virus if they did not hear about it “on TV”. They cannot separate implausibility and plausibility.
    The lack of basic common sense, logic, and critical thinking skills is at an all-time low in the world.
    We must keep finding ways to expose this evil, fight back, stop complying to these evil restrictions and measures, and take back our normal lives from these evil few who are behind all of it.

  14. Maybe this article is satire?   Even if the pandemic is something completely made up to control populations,  I think there is probably some connection with our treatment of the environment and the other creatures that live on this planet that could create a friendly climate for something like this virus to spread quickly to humans.   While I agree that the state is using this situation to exert control over the population, I don’t think the pandemic is completely false.   It would be good to find out that somebody somewhere has been doing some serious research on why we are in this mess and then that fear would induce people to consume less and, possibly, bring climate change under control.  That, of course, could possibly require quite a lot of control for the general population,  as well as for those billionaires who have profited so much from this pandemic but who, unfortunately for them, have to share the environment with the rest of us.

So then what do they do? Trot out cult tactics to conform you to a new reality, based on a virus that has never actually been seen, isolated or sequenced. THEY ARE FUCKING WITH YOU. Yet people fell for it without a second of reflection. They are laughing at the fact that you watched all this stuff on TV, were totally shocked and appalled by it, THEN FELL FOR IT COMPLETELY YOURSELVES. Stop telling yourself no. Suspend your disbelief. Stop thinking ‘they wouldn’t tell such fantastic lies for this reason’. ‘They wouldn’t put lives or the economy at risk for that’. ‘The guy I votednfor seemed so nice and trustworthy, hed never go along with it.’ WRONG. They do this all the time. Where are Iraq WMDs? What happened to flight MA370? What really happened in that ‘Syrian gas attack’? Why did they dump Osamas body in the ocean before anyone could verify it? You live your life swimming in a sea of fantastic lies. So many you probably forgot about some. WTF kind of world is it where you can forget lies that caused wars and death, because there are so many others? You need to wake up. Stop with the fake figures RVS. You’re quoting a different dataset with entirely different figures. And why are they different? Because NONE of them are valid. THAT is the scientific conclusion. If you count something 4 times and get 4 different numbers, you call that ‘science’?! Really?! But they do this specifically so that you do waste your life arguing them back and forth out of blind Faith. So that you don’t have to accept the bigger truth. They do this because so many ARE THIS GULLIBLE. So many would prefer to argue minutae forever rather than accept a truth they feel powerless against. But the power comes in knowing the truth and not being scared of it. There is no COVID 19. The CDC itself said it was ‘unavailable’ when they designed the test. So the template being used in all these tests is just the RNA of a person who had similar symptoms. Not even a confirmed case. It’s a fantastic fraud, despite being out in the open with lights shining on it. Pull up your anchor. There is no core truth to COVID. There is no one thing where you can say ‘well that part may not be true but this is’. NOTHING IS! And it’s a matter of the survival of our society that you fully accept this. You cannot fight a lie like this with the lesser details of the same lie. You need to abandon it completely. You need to live the truth like COVID never happened. Because guess what. COVID never happened. Period. Present me with an photo or sequence of the isolated virus if you are still unable to unmoor from this lie. It will do you a lot of good to search for yourself for months (as I did) only to find nothing. But I promise you you will find nothing. Less than nothing actually. Just lies. And no those completely invented, full color graphic images don’t count. Viruses don’t have colors. They are too small to reflect the wavelengths of visible light. So that thing you thought was the truth is also a lie. And they just keep laughing that you fell for it all.

  17. As someone wholly opposed to totalitarianism I was rather startled to see my own religion listed here alongside Charles Manson, et al.

    A “cult” is a closed, secretive group. Scientology is the opposite. You can walk into nearly any Church of Scientology and get a tour, wander around the Public Display Area and spend hours watching video after video in order to find out for yourself what Scientology is about.

    In fact, one wonders whether the author is even aware of the fact the Church has an entire TV channel dedicated to answering the question, “What is Scientology?”

    It is accessible to anyone at Scientology.tv, DirectTV’s Channel 320, the Church’s YouTube Channel or by simply downloading the app on any device and start watching.

    In our present world of lies and confusion, it is not a bad idea to practice Look, Don’t Listen.

    Today it possible to find out for yourself what Scientology is all about—directly, from the Church itself.

    As the current leader of Scientology, David Miscavige, states in the Introduction to the Scientology Network: “whatever you have heard, if you haven’t heard it from us, I can assure you we are not what you expect.”

    In fact the stated Aims of Scientology are:

    “A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where Man is free to rise to greater heights, are the aims of Scientology.”

    Does that sound sane or psychotic to you?

    Scientology’s stated Creed is as follows:

    That all men of whatever race, color or creed were created with equal rights.
    That all men have inalienable rights to their own religious practices and their performance.
    That all men have inalienable rights to their own lives.
    That all men have inalienable rights to their sanity.
    That all men have inalienable rights to their own defense.
    That all men have inalienable rights to conceive, choose, assist or support their own organizations, churches and governments.
    That all men have inalienable rights to think freely, to talk freely, to write freely their own opinions and to counter or utter or write upon the opinions of others.
    That all men have inalienable rights to the creation of their own kind. …

    You can read the remainder at the Church’s website and decide for yourself whether it sounds sane or psychotic.

    Anyone who cares to LOOK should find out for themselves that Scientology is actually the antimatter of totalitarianism. In fact Scientology’s Founder penned two articles in particular that, to my mind at least, best describe the anatomy of the global totalitarian push that is currently underway and the personalities behind it: “Evolution of Totalitarianism” (http://legacyimgs.lronhubbard.org/eng/fightrae/page028.htm) & “Unite and Win” (http://legacyimgs.lronhubbard.org/eng/fightrae/page022b.htm).

    Too there is a relevant video presentation on the Scientology Network that describes the Antisocial Personality that the author of this article is trying to articulate: https://www.scientology.tv/series/l-ron-hubbard-library-presents/the-anti-social-personality-the-social-personality.html

    1. “A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where Man is free to rise to greater heights, are the aims of Scientology.”

      Does that sound sane or psychotic to you?

      Yes, that is completely insane because to believe the world can be rid of every ill is to believe a patent lie about human nature. As for what Scientology actually is, that has no relation to what Scientology says it is to gullible potential recruits. And, of course, not telling newbies about Lord Xenu, thetans, and the rest of the preposterous sci-fi garbage makes Scientology not only secretive but deceptive, so even by your own arbitrary definition of a cult, Scientology is indeed a cult. You are exactly the kind of unfortunate soul the author talks about: a cultist who doesn’t know he’s in a cult.

  18. Do you want another example of irrational adherence to fake science? The colors of the text and background in this site. Somehow the absurd notion that less contrast makes reading easier has become widespread. So if dark gray is better than black against a whitish background, then medium gray, which is what we have here, must be better still! Soon it will be light gray and then the ultimate in reading ease: text and background of the same color.

  19. Well, I’m no scientist and so I don’t have the pretensiouness to preach it or teach it, or tell you that the scientists are wrong. It is strange to hear a guy with an obvious predetermined agenda, who know doubt approaches hid work with a preconceived agenda to find answers conforming to his agenda, doesn’t have much relevant to say about journalism either. Is Swesen a shining example to anyone on Covid? No, they are not the worst off, but they are very very far from a shining example. The extremest language he used on everything is the first red flag, He is not qualified to explain the stats from a cdc which he doesn’t even bother identify. is that the BCCDC or the NY CDC, are their stats the same everyday, or do they move like Covid does? Whatever those percentage means, it translates to big numbers, 215000 Americans did, and some would want us go to the “normalcy of a year ago and just casually watch those tolls mount. Why? Because the only thing that matters to some is to stick their heads in the sands and denial and keep it stuck there at all costs. Denial never made a problem disappear, if anything denial services to exhasbirate problems. A for his statements on the corporate media, I trust unionized media, where journalists are free to work by their professional standards and odes of ethics without worrying about whether their towing their owners line. The Washington Post is unionized, Fox is not. https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/21517702/great-barrington-declaration-john-snow-memorandum-explained-herd-immunity?fbclid=IwAR2Q2sHU2vT9d8rfMLydSQh7ldmdznlehvb6FUdzK4uxbBSXPBB3sCePqDM
