Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred.
– Joseph Goebbels
We would like to think that modern societies like ours have outgrown barbaric customs like human sacrifice. Sure, we still engage in scapegoating and figuratively sacrifice people on the altar of public opinion, but we don’t actually kill people in hopes of placating the gods and restoring order. Or do we?

Is there anybody who can translate this into german?
Martin Fabris says
We could try. I generally start with Google Translate and then read over the results to untangle any nonsense that the Google translation engine made. Usually it’s fairly good, though.
If somebody would translate it I would volunteer to proof-read it

Thank You Thank You… You show up like a songbird in the forrest.
Thanks for giving voice to this Charles. I can only imagine how intense some of the response and attempt at censorship and scapegoating after releasing this article must be.
Thanks you for voicing your truth and for letting your voice be heard. It resonates deeply.
I could never quite figure you out. I figured who you were with this essay and you and your opinions are as frightening as they are shallow. Your attempt to intellectualize is just you hoisting yourself up on your own petard so to speak and pathetic. But you go too far. I have unsubscribed
The comments on Charles’ Substack page are frightening. He needs to step in.
Jonathan Evelegh says
“It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.”
I may be dense, but I couldn’t read any anti-Semitism into your comments. You were simply writing about the conditions of the mind that might exploit anti-Semitism, preexisting or not. In general, I see your point of view, but don’t agree with all the tortured issues of the anti-vaccinators. I wish they’d get the shots. I think they’re a menace to public health. Ultimately, all this blather about coronavirus misses one important thing, which is that it simply isn’t human and has an agenda all of its own. A lot of people can’t quite wrap their little minds about the agency of anything non-human. I don’t suppose they’ll ever learn, but at least they’ll still have their precious personal liberty, the great illusion that afflicts so many.
Don’t let the casual readers get to you with their preexisting sensitivities.
Thank you Charles for your recent response to the responses , knee jerk in their reality to the above article . It is so difficult to be reserved in ones action and voice in an ambition for greater peace . For some vaccination is a hard choice made with still caveats in place and respect for another’s choice . I have found myself in this place . I am impressed that your responses warmly embrace “ the problem “ in that the Great Reset presents a bigger conundrum of uncertainty than we could imagine . The freedoms we hope to preserve themselves the origins of the “ control “ that looms . If we see the problems in Afghanistan as I write then we are left with this problem I would call Nefarious philanthropy . For sure there are always good intentions but certainly retaining such small fields of vision through so called quick solutions or slaying sacrificial lambs will never truly achieve anything but a veneer . I love that example you gave a few years ago that by perhaps arguing in our close relationships we were contributing to the great collective consciousness and it’s direction . This lack of awareness I would agree with you creates the Devil , the Illuminati , the Cabal , Economic Forum etc . The American and British government have dealt in this myth pre and post war and in the belief seeded a real and tangible threat . The solution create another myth of better days and fantasy of lush freedoms . I’m with you Charles when I think like they say in WWE wrestling – “ Here and Now “ !! It begins with us – Interbeing . I support you
Thank you for this. There is something healing just in reading these non-dualistic thoughts.
Ravi Mirchandani says
Thank you for the courage to write and share your thoughts on the mob mentality targeting the unvaccinated. It is like a voice in the wilderness to me.
Ronnie Tal says
Thanks you Charles,
This was a first read for me of your work that came to me by chance.. as these things do.
I live in northern nsw Australia and I invite you to look what’s happening in my country… your essay manifested to reality…
What really got me was that your writing articulated my thoughts into words… beautifully done.
I’m not an extremist and always try to see reason but it’s impossible to ignore how frightening the world is… there’s people that I’ve known for decades that I can’t talk to anymore because I dared to question the narrative … never have I seen such division in society… people are entrenched in their camps..
Again thanks for your thought provoking essay..
Sincerely from the land of plenty.. or rather plenty over the top and getting to beyond the pale

Lissa Rankin initially was skeptical of the lockdowns and testing and tracing, but she has now renounced her earlier position and is completely on board with the mainstream perspective:
She accused Eisenstein of trivializing the holocaust despite initially questioning the same things. Her Facebook page now contains posts accusing him of sociopathic attitudes for not embracing the vaccines and she fully supports legal punishment and social ostracism for all the unvaccinated.
Eisenstein needs to stop trying to be above the fray and pretending that the truth is somewhere in the middle. His non-committed position is not wise nor mature, and it’s very misleading. The truth is the whole pandemic narrative is rooted in false science. The vaccines are not safe and effective and Covid is not very dangerous – assuming its even real in the first place and isn’t simply many other illnesses repackaged under a new name, which is what Jon Rappoport thinks:
Very interesting. I’ve never thought of the hatred towards the unvaxxed from a collective scapegoating perspective, but it it sure makes sense! Along those same lines, COVID itself can also be seen from the same scapegoating lens, as was described so well in this scientific paper from the end of 2020: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7426727/
Thank you so much for this. I’ve been so afraid of these vaccines because of all the threats and lies constantly put forward. If it’s necessary to coerce, what’s the truth about these vaccines? But my fear has been far more visceral, growing by the day and you’ve explained why I feel the way I do. There’s no comfort in it, but I can see there’s substance to what I feel rather than something without foundation. Scary substance.
Many of the statements made by Peter McCullough in the referenced rumble interview are false or misleading.
Invisible Man says
Vaccines are entirely unnecessary and useless, since they are based upon an essential misunderstanding of the both nature’s processes and the human physiology itself. A much more correct model of the body, and its relationship to health and disease, was provided by Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer with German New Medicine – which amply demonstrates the complete uselessness of vaccines as vectors of health.
Besides which – for the umpteenth time – these are an EXPERIMENTAL procedure and NOT conventional vaccines, which means they carry risks over and above the usual risks associated with vaccines.
Besides which – there is now overwhelming evidence that these experimental vaccines have already been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people around the world, as well as causing (sometimes very severe) adverse reactions (including blood clots, strokes, and damage to the heart) in millions more.
Besides which – there is plenty of evidence if you’re paying attention that Covid doesn’t even exist. It’s a consequence of the faulty testing that people think a pandemic even occurred. It didn’t. There was no pandemic. If all these constant testing and mask wearing and social distancing and hysterical reporting hadn’t gone on for almost two years, no one would even think a global pandemic was happening. It’s a media fabrication – that’s true even if – ESPECIALLY if – the vast majority of people reporting on the pandemic honestly believe they’re describing something really existent.
Regardless of whether McCullough is correct about anything or everything, he’s correct that these particular vaccines are dangerous and not helpful.
How disappointing. Loved your previous work. The ‘science’ cited in your web links is rubbish.
