Newtown World Order Religion 90

The Sandy Hook School massacre of December 14 has no doubt been seized upon by the present police state as a raison d’être for heightened gun control measures. Yet a more subtle element of the event is the promotion of a political worldview under the cloak of psychiatry and an increasingly prominent notion of “community building.”[1]

Stepping into the emotional fallout of December’s mass shooting is Dr. John Woodall. The former Harvard psychiatrist was almost immediately making the rounds in Newtown, consoling the grief stricken and advocating a seemingly unique communitarian creed. Woodall’s presence was unsurprising for locals since he resides in Sandy Hook, where his “Unity Project” non-profit is also based. What is more, the event was eerily appropriate for the “teaching children resilience” mission Woodall’s organization was already undertaking in Newtown area schools. Unity Project had already contributed to such exercises following major crises including 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina.

At first glance the Unity Project appears to be yet another new agey, “let go of the hate” platform for Woodall’s pop-humanist psychology. We must learn to overcome our ordeals and look beyond our differences on the way to one big group hug. The organization has created such a program for the youth of Newtown’s high school where students have been encouraged to fill out a psychological survey and  negotiate with administrators and teachers to lessen the homework load.[2]

On its face the prospect of developing well-rounded and engaged citizens sounds desirable. Who wants to be considered a holdout against local cooperation, peaceful coexistence, even global trade harmonization? The consequence these days includes running the risk of being deemed a grouchy extremist. Perhaps this is why groups are actively espousing and disseminating Unity Project precepts in schools and communities throughout the world.

“As we move more deeply into a national and global climate fraught with complex and nuanced problems,” Woodall explains,

young people need to become masters of working with this complexity and diversity in cooperative and constructive ways. Our democracy and the happiness of our lives depend upon it. Young people need to know how to recognize bias, see the big picture and resist and problem solve cooperatively and to resist the human tendency to allow fear and anger to pull us to simplistic and extremist solutions that only create division and conflict and end up worsening the problems we face.[3]

This exact doctrine was articulated in Woodall’s December 14 remarks to the Associated Press.

I do this for a living—I do trauma work for a living. I ran programs overseas for the State Department. I’ve worked in school shootings before. But all that—none of that counts. All that counts at that moment is that another human being is there for you … It’s a strong community. It’s a resilient community. The task now is for the community to give this a meaning. It’s like in New York City after 9/11. The lesson of 9/11 wasn’t that we should be afraid or angry, or bitter or blame or point fingers. The lesson of 9/11 is that we’re all in this together and we need to show compassion for each other to give meaning to the loss.

In Woodall’s evaluation the death and horror from such events constitute a sort of nightmarish martyrdom from which a greater good will arise. Indeed, many of the Sandy Hook victims’ families publicly exhibit this very ability to unemotionally cope with profound loss, an ostensible response and mindset that does not go unnoticed by the broader public.[4] The wide exposure of this apparent struggle suggests a mass conditioning toward the community resilience that is a foremost element of what contemporary social engineers have termed the “Newtown transition.”

Along these lines and throughout the bulk of Woodall’s writings and pronouncements there is a clear resemblance to the precepts of the Bahá’í faith, to which Woodall is a devotee. Even though his professional training and pedigree suggest a “scientific” (qua psychiatry) approach to personal and community problems, Woodall’s writings are essentially those espoused by the Bahá’ís. He just seldom declares such affiliations or beliefs publicly.[5] An exception was when Woodall and his spouse Margo Woodall recited Bahá’í passages at the December 16, 2012 interfaith gathering for Sandy Hook victims attended by President Obama.

From its headquarters in Haifa Israel and under the authority of the Universal House of Justice, Bahá’í is overseen country-to-country by National and Local Spiritual Assemblies. The religion is an international phenomenon, with its spiritual founder prophesying a global socio-political transformation under the Bahá’í order’s aegis. “The Bahá’í Faith is the youngest of the world’s independent religions,” the International Bahá’í Community website notes.

Its founder, Bahá’u’lláh (1817-1892), is regarded by Bahá’ís as the most recent in the line of Messengers of God that stretches back beyond recorded time and that includes Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Christ and Muhammad. The central theme of Bahá’u’lláh’s message is that humanity is one single race and that the day has come for its unification in one global society. God, Bahá’u’lláh said, has set in motion historical forces that are breaking down traditional barriers of race, class, creed, and nation and that will, in time, give birth to a universal civilization.[6]

In 1982 the Bahá’í faith unambiguously professed before the United Nations “the goal of a new World Order, Divine in origin, all-embracing in scope, equitable in principle, challenging in its features — that a harassed humanity must strive.”[7]

Toward this end Bahá’ís’ guiding philosophy and goals include:

All humanity is one family.
Women and men are equal.
All prejudice—racial, religious, national, or economic—is destructive and must be overcome.
We must investigate truth for ourselves, without preconceptions.
Science and religion are in harmony.
Our economic problems are linked to spiritual problems.
All major religions come from God.
World peace is the crying need of our time.

If this is indeed the basis of a global religion, before which all other beliefs and denominations must yield, there are a number of obvious concerns. For example, how does one define national or economic “prejudice”? Will one’s economic wherewithal be contingent upon converting to a new, state-mandated religion/spirituality? And along these lines, if science and religion are conflated, what entities will help determine the moral parameters of the many scientific pursuits that run counter to and endanger life on earth? Under such a scheme will psychiatrists and bioethicists make up a new clergy? Many of the Bahá’í tenets would fit well in a technocratic order where the state is the foremost authority.

According to the Center for Media and Democracy’s Sourcewatch database [8] the Bahá’í faith’s ambitious vision is a forthrightly political project calling for the creation of

A World Super State
A World Legislator
Unification of all the world’s religions under the umbrella of the Bahá’í faith
A World Parliament
A World Police Force
A Supreme Tribunal
A Single World Currency
A World Taxation System
A Single Universal Auxiliary Language
Implementation of Agenda 21 and the Earth Charter
Establishment of a World Free Trade Area

Along with the institutionalized secular faith of carbon-centric environmentalism that figures centrally in the Bahá’ís’ undertakings, the Unity Project’s understated transnationalism is likewise making inroads at public schools and in communities throughout the world. As in his previous endeavors, the Sandy Hook tragedy has provided the backdrop for Woodall’s evangelizing that seeks to realign the traumatized individual and group toward certain ideals and norms. What is arguably of concern is that Woodall proceeds under the cover of mental health professional while espousing an ardent globalist ideology that runs counter to the traditional political beliefs and religious faiths that, for better or worse, are espoused by a majority of the world’s population.

In the broader scheme of things the impulses and goals of the anti-individualistic Bahá’í faith’s and Dr. Woodall’s Unity Project provide clear glimpses of what may soon become a prevalent if not compulsory worldview–the elements of which are already being employed to ease the world’s population into a heightened tempo of violent and traumatic mediated events en route to the digitally-enforced feudalism of the twenty-first century.

  1. John Woodall’s been spotted spreading consolation and understanding again. Colin McEnroe writes (re the Boston Bombing), on Courant.com.

    “The only reason I know anything about ‘Abdu’l-Bahá is because John Woodall, a psychiatrist from Newtown, pressed a volume of his speeches into my hand during the week after the massacre in his town. Woodall is of the Bahá’í faith. Abdu’l-Bahá was the son of its founder, Bahá’u’lláh.”

    Who does he think he is, a bleeding psychiatrist?

    The article refers to Bahai as a global religion “before which all other beliefs and denominations must yield…”. That’s not the way Bahais see themselves and their relations to other religions. What they are saying is not “everyone must become a Bahai” but rather “if you look at the larger picture, all the religions (Bahai included) are part of one common faith.” Like chemistry and physics are part of science. The Chinese economay and the American economy are part of one global economic order.

    The article goes on to say, “Will one’s economic wherewithal be contingent upon converting to a new, state-mandated religion/spirituality?” Now you’re just scaring yourself for titillation. If you’re talking about the Bahais, the answer is no, there are no rewards for converting to the Bahai Faith. Sorry.

    Then it says “And along these lines, if science and religion are conflated,..” If you’re talking about Bahais, no, science and religion are not conflated. They are two different things. Religion (Bahai included) is only one of them. There are other truths, alongside the truths of religions.

    The Bahai Faith is described in the article as “anti-individualistic.” What you been smokin’ man? All of the ethical religions are individualistic, because they claim that one’s individual spiritual well-being is tied to one’s individual moral decisions. Bahai is more individualist than most, because it does not have a one-size-fits-all idea of the ‘ends’ of individuals:

    “Every age hath its own problem, and every soul its particular aspiration. (Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 213)

  5. hmmm – one way to keep people quiet??

    “Adding further heartbreak to utter tragedy, the last mile of Monday’s Boston Marathon, which was rocked by at least two explosions resulting in an unknown number of injuries and casualties Monday afternoon, was dedicated to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting massacre. Boston Athletic Association president Joanne Flaminio said before the race that had a “special significance” because it was 26.2 miles long and there was 26 victims in the Newtown attack. There was also a group of Newtown parents running as part of a group called Team Newtown Strong who were raising money for local charities. A banner honoring the victims, hung at the end of the 26th mile, can be seen in the photo above.

    “In the first twenty miles we’re honoring the twenty Sandy Hook first graders,” Laura Nowacki, a spokesperson for Newtown Strong, explained to WBUR Boston. “When we crest Heartbreak Hill, and we’re coming back towards Boston, we run the final six for our six fallen educators, including their lives, to protect our children.”

    There was a 26-second moment of silence for the victims before the race started.

    Update 4:07 p.m.: Newtown families were reportedly seated in the VIP section right by where the explosions went off. There’s no word whether they are among the 23 injured and two dead from the explosions.

    As for what Marilyn said, “the unfortunate discussion of the Jew factor. This tends to derail rational debate as we are caught in a trap to prove/disprove history.” I do agree that sticking to the issues pertaining to Sandy Hook is important.

    That said, any foreign nation that has influence in the United States’ political sphere is up for scrutiny. Whatever happened at Sandy Hook was said to have occurred at a *public school* during school hours, I believe it is important for future school safety to discern what actually happened—and, why.

  9. The enormous amount of killing in the USA compared with other societies is not due primarily to guns, but to the indoctrination of the American people by American power to emotioinally identify with homicidal racism. Americans are covertly taught by the media and other truth institutions of American power to respect and admire homicidal power, especially when conducted by uniformed homicidal Heroes against non-White people.

    This is an historical tendency. The USA polity was founded on the ethnc cleansing of American Indians and the slavery of African Amerians, steaing the homes and homeland from the former, and the labor and freedom from the latter.

    Compared to the centuries of blloodshed and suffering of these Aemricans, the American Revolution was a business decision by the White ruling class–The Founding Fathers–to avoid paying taxes. The homicial racism (and the tax evasion) continues up to the present historical momemt in the Terror War, killing hundrreds of thousands of dark skinned Muslims to steal their oils, homes, and other property and power.

    The homicidal racism is ideologically repressed in the American truth consensus, where it contiunues to fester to produce violence. So American history is replete with lynchings, executions, wars, massacres, racial pogroms, gangster killings, gang wars, homicidal conspiracies, and personal killings. Largely because we are afraid to discuss them opeonly because it would subvert the Patriotic ideology that historically has legitimated American power.

That is the only way we will solve our historical problems of the time, notably global climate change, the threat of nuclear war, and economic chaos. Becauise of the liberal and Progressive opposition to Conspiracy Theories, the commentary on these homicidal conspiracies tend to have a right wing nationalist slant, exhibited by the Texas group around Alex Jones. This nationalism is largely based on White racism, the undercurrent of much comment.

    I think a world government is essential, necessary, and inevitable historically, and the major opposition against it historically is not the capitalist Western bankers, currently in increasing disarray, but China, the rising power replacing the USA as the hegomonic power.

    And I am in favoar of disarming America, which is functioning under the operataive ideology of homicidal racism. I am not only in favor of taking away the guns, but the bombs, drones, blanes, ships, etc from the American military and bringing them home. And after that, which is an historical effort, considering whether and how to restict guns in the civilian population.

I am at a loss as to what these terms even mean any more, although they conjure up bogeys in the minds of those who imagine themselves as liberal.

      In academic parlance Jones exemplifies “producerism.” In other words, he articulates the frustrations of many average Janes and Joes who are being squeezed and look to illegal immigration, government overreach, and economic corruption as being among causes of their woes. Uncertain as to how this makes him and his followers racist.

I believe that we should have the right to do whatever we want providing it brings no harm to anyone’s person or property. One world government?? It is too big of a project for any group to manage. A utopian pipe dream. Any attempt will always be hijacked by the power elite, the greedy and the corrupt. Instead, let people be sovereign citizens. Let them rule their own lives. And let them have the means to protect it. I don’t know how so many have been tricked to believe they need any one group to rule over them. If people want things like socialism, they can have it in their hearts. Help anyone they want to. But having it through confiscatory means? Well, the problem with socialism is , you eventually run out of other peoples money. I believe it was Benjamin Franklin who was asked at Independence Hall ” so what type of government are we going to have?”. He responded with “A republic, if you can keep it”. Well, it’s pretty obvious that we’ve failed miserably at that. But call me weird, I still don’t see serfdom as an answer. And a one world government can only be established by destroying and abolishing everyone else differences which no one has any right to do! And this the Elite know and this they are doing! But not just destroying differences, they have no problem turning any country that disagrees with their selfish, greed driven vision into a parking lot! You say “and only if, it is controlled by the earth’s people”?? I assure you that this present road to world government is.

    • Mark,

      You say, “[James Miller is] a self confessed Nazi who is openly racist and anti-semitic.”

      What I want to address here is the loose use of language, which begins to tend towards what Orwell termed ‘Newspeak’.

      First of all, I would not argue that Miller is not of the Nazi ilk, that he is indeed ‘racist’ in philosophy. My problem is the term “antisemitic”; this term has been through the wash too many times and has not only faded but become shredded. It was from the beginning a term that did not mean what the term “Semite” actually refers to – which is simply a language group. Even modern dictionaries however, will give a definition beyond the actual original lexicon; stating that the term means a ‘hatred of Jews’…but the actual meaning of the term itself means “Anti”:against, the “Semitic language” — so what we have here is a term that is ‘universally’ accepted to mean something the term does not say linguistically.

      The term has been used in such a way that it has become absolutely meaningless, even in its subtextual implications. As such I think it is high time that the issue be addressed honestly as far as actual meanings are concerned. If one wants to say that another is a “Jew Hater”, let us come out and say that clearly. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the language a Jew might speak. To say that these issues are confused because “Jews are not a racial category”, then let us ask what the stricture of having a “Jewish mother” has to do with the concept of being Jewish. What exactly is “Jewish blood” or “Jewish DNA”?

      And then the issue of the Khazar, and Ashkenazim comes into the picture to make it even more complex.

      Is not the real issue; “Exceptionalism”? The belief that ones ‘race’ or ‘creed’ is superior…? And as such is it not best to judge each individual as to what they say and do, rather than lump all into camps that they may not be happy within?

      I engaged in quite a debate with Kevin MacDonald via email, because he refused to have that debate on his web site. As I proved to him by rational argumentation, he is no different from the charges he makes against the “Jew” in that he is arguing for “White Exceptionalism”, as are these folks over at STORMFRONT, where Miller is a honcho.

      The problem boils down to “organization” and the fact that competing organizations become the same in techniques and stratagems.

      Excuse the length of this post, I know it is a bit beyond the original topic.

A perfect example is any politico remotely familiar w/ John McCain knows the Senator is no friend of those outside the Beltway DC Establishment. McCain is no representative of freedom & liberty via small government; the US Constitution & the Bill of Rights, i.e. the Movement known as Conservatism. To suggest otherwise is laughable: McCain-Feinstein may ring a bell? Further, readers would do well to recognize inanely vile; hate-filled anti-semitic propaganda when stumbling upon it & to quickly call it what it is; nothing more than unadulterated insanity.

        Are you saying that there are those who are against the Semitic languages? What does the term “anti-semitic” actually mean, without the political baggage attached to it?

        Isn’t Arabic a Semitic language? Do you propose that these vile haters hate Arabic? It may be hard to understand to the western mind, but “hating” it?? That seems really odd, and I would indeed be careful of anyone who hates other languages, regardless of where they are spoken.

  16. If I am not mistaken, Dr. John Woodall actually wrote several comments on the earlier thread on Sandy Hook, just after Professor Tracy had declined air time on TV…

    He invited anyone who didn’t believe the official story to “come to Newtown and I will buy you a cup of coffee…”

    We exchanged commentary for a few posts before he eventually faded away. His pose was one of “knowing authority” and the subtext was quite arrogant. I noticed he was very disturbed that I was “talking back to him” like I might be his equal or something as outrageous as that {grin}.

    Within an hour or so another poster had ID’d him as a Psychiatrist who had schooling at Harvard. That was when Dr. Woodall lost interest in further conversation on the thread.

    It’s great to find out how deeply involved this character is in the whole thing. I would posit there is “inside knowledge” under his strange dual hats.

    Looking across the pond, I was interested to read this article concerning a “Big Society” initiative in England.

    ‘Serco, a leading private contractor, is in line to win a multimillion-pound contract to run the National Citizen Service, proposed by the prime minister as a “big society”, non-military version of national service for youngsters aged over 16’.

    Source: http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2012/aug/05/serco-bid-national-citizen-service

    One blogger has hit the nail on the head with his observations about the privatization of efforts formerly provided by Charities.

    “So to be clear, the government has stripped the cash from charities that care passionately for the young in their community and have worked tirelessly and have strong trusted links with them built over decades. Instead, they have given millions to a company that will being trying to replicate that but in a way to make profit for it’s shareholders. This is absurd!!”

    Source: http://barcode1966.wordpress.com/2012/08/05/serco-rules-britannia/

    Last month, Serco reported a 27% rise in profits, yet maintained its prison and healthcare outsourcing contracts from the UK government has not lined its coffers.

    I see in the Serco initiative echoes of a 2006 interview with Rahm Emmanuel, Obama’s former Chief of Staff, in which he discussed a book he’d co-authored with Bruce Reed, “The Plan: Big Ideas for America.” In this interview, Emmanuel said, “citizenship is not an entitlement program.” He then described… wait for it,…. “Mandatory National Service!”

    “Everyone from the ages of 18 – 25 will serve three months of basic training in a kind of in civil defense. That universal sense of service between the ages of 18 – 25 will give Americans fortunately a sense of what they are as Americans and a contribution to a country, and a common experience.”

    Somehow it has escaped our dual citizen (Israeli-American) that the common experience we Americans share is that we are FREE!!!!!

    If you Google “Mandatory National Service” you will see that Mr. Emmanuel’s idea caught the interest of several news outlets. On the Huffington Post, a doctor lady penned an article this Summer. She writes, “From the sons and daughters of truck drivers and tycoons, all would serve. We would all benefit both personally and as a country.”

  20. No wonder Bertrand Russell (1872 – d.1970) made these claims: “scientific societies are as yet in their infancy. It is to be expected that advances in physiology and psychology will give governments much more control over individual mentality than they now have in tolitarian countries. Fichte laid it down that education should aim at destroying free will.” [pg. 49, The Impact of Science on Society]

    “I do not believe that dictatorship is a lasting form of scientific society–unless it can become world-wide.” [pg 50]

    “A scientific society can be stable given certain conditions:
    A single government of the whole world, possessing a monopoly of armed force and therefore able to ‘enforce’ peace. [word emphasis is mine]
    A general diffusion of propsperity, so that there is no occasion for envy of one part of the world by another.
    A low birthrate everywhere.
    A provision for individual initiative both in work and play and the greatest diffusion of power compatible with manintaining the political and economic framework.” [pg 113]

    “We must expect vast upheavals and appalling suffering before stability is attained.” [pg. 114]

    “Diet, injections and junctions [processes that join things together] will combine from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable and any serious criticism of the powers that be will be psychologically impossible.” [pg 50]

    Then Russell muses about how societies’ progress:
    “No society can be progressive without a leaven of rebels and modern techniques makes it more and more difficult to be a rebel.” [pg 65]

    Some populist intellectual brainiac must have studied this book because the word ‘rebel’ roots back to Latin ‘transgression against God’ so you see it is possible to bring this ‘structure of society’ in by claiming it is ‘God setting forth historical forces’ and adherents using this to create a world religion. Rebel also means to engage in political struggle, so apply that to Russell’s statement above.

    “The need for a world government, if the population problem is to be solved in any humane manner is completely evident on Darwinian principles.” [pg. 105]

    Bertrand Russell received the Nobel Prize for literature in 1950 for championing humanitarian ideals. His grandfather was Lord John Russell, British Foreign Secretary during the Civil War.

    On humanization and ideals: Pedogogy Of The Oppressed by Professor Paulo Freire

    “The problem of humanization has always, from an axiological point of view, been humankind’s central problem, it now takes on the character of an inescapable concern. Concern for humanization leads at once to the recognition of dehumanization, not only as an ontological possibility but as an historical reality. Both humanization and dehumanization are possibilities for a person as an uncompleted being conscious of their incompletion.” [pg. 43]

    “The oppressed become oppressors. During the initial stage of the struggle the very structure of their thought has been conditioned by the contradictions of the concrete, existential situation by which they were shaped.” [pg 45]

    “Dehumanization which marks not only those whose humanity has been stolen but also those who have stolen it is a distortion of the vocation of becoming more fully human. This distortion occurs within history, but it is not an historical vocation. This struggle is possible only because dehumanization, although a concrete historical fact, is not a given destiny but the result of an unjust order that engenders violence in the oppressors, which in turn dehumanizes the oppressed.” [pg. 44]

    Paulo Freire (1921-1997) was a Professor of the History and Philosopy of Education, at the University of Recife, Brazil.

    “Towards the end of his life Paulo Freire–a man of hallmark humility was a man teaching us and the world what it means to be an intellectual who fights against the temptation of becoming a populist intellectual.” [Donaldo Macedo]

    In conversation with Donaldo Macedo Freire stated:

    “We need to say no to the neoliberal fatalism that we are witnessing at the end of this century, informed by the ethics of the market, an ethics in which a minority makes most profits against the lives of the majority. In other words, those who cannot compete, die. This is a perverse ethics that, in fact, lacks ethics. I insist on saying that I continue to be human…I would then remain the last educator in the world to say no: I do not accept….history as determinism. I embrace history as possibility [where] we can demystify the evil in this perverse fatalism that characterizes the neoliberal discourse in the end of this century.” [pg 25-26, Donaldo Macedo, Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts and Education, University of Massachusetts, Boston]

    Fatalism means a submissive attitude to events
    Submissive means meekly obedient or passive. Also falling obediently into passive (unemotional) roles.

    • I did not know this about Bertrand Russell. I knew he was an atheist and a mathematician.

      I have been a fan of Noam Chomsky and watched many hours of videos of him speaking and being interviewed. But I have heard two criticisms of Professor Chomsky for which I have no evidence:

      1) when asked about US or Israeli involvement in 9/11 he replied – what difference does it make who did it?
      2) he will not discuss the “Holocaust” or the possibility that it is an invented psy-op

      I heard him say in one interview that he is opposed to national boarders or nationalism. And I saw in one video that Professor Chomsky has/had a large poster of Bertrand Russell on the wall outside his office door – at MIT.

      So I ask – what’s wrong with a New World Order (NWO)? Here’s one man’s answer: “Anti-fascists are effective since they sincerely believe what they’re doing is morally right. Their belief in their moral superiority is a powerful motivating force, propelling them to inflict much damage to society (in their quest to tear down the current order). They naively believe global justice will be realized when all nations are eliminated, all races live together, and similar utopian goals are realized. Of course this is the old communist trick they have fallen for. A trick? Yes, because as soon as such broad goals are realized or merely approached, the NWO hammer will come down hard and a “global plantation” run by tyranny will reign supreme (think Bolshevik Russia). At this point anti-fascists will wonder, “where is the utopia we worked for?”

        Sorry I cannot cite the place, but I heard Chomsky say this myself:

        “1) when asked about US or Israeli involvement in 9/11 he replied – what difference does it make who did it?”

        I have been to many lectures by Chomsky, he is brilliant in his way, but he is so tethered to ‘systemic analysis’ that he fails to recognize certain aspects of that system, and seems blind to the whole advent of the New World Order. He seems to regard it as “conspiracy theory”.

        I would agree now that Chomsky is what is called a “Left Gatekeeper”
        I think there is the tendency within academia towards dogmatism, and guarding ones intellectual turf – which means a narrowing of the mind as a shield against criticism beyond ones own boundaries.

        If you want to see an exchange between someone superior to Chomsky’s intellect, look up Michel Foucault and the debate between the two. I know this is available as YouTube video.

    The crucial element of the Bahai religion that is relevant here is that they don’t allow their adherents to engage in political struggle. This is a very convenient ban if the people have been involved in a public relations fraud and it is desired that they move on and don’t expose it. :”look on the bright side, move forward, no negative feelings, no Extremism, etc”

  23. The fact that the media-government is now framing the gun control issue as a mental health issue should be of the great concern to all of us, because all of us could easily be determined – by mental health professionals – to be suffering from one or another mental illness, or a variety thereof.

    None of the recent lone gunman shootings the media-government is trotting out – Tucson, Aurora, Sandy Hook – could have been prevented, they say, because none of the shooters had been in the mental health system.

    The media-government solution is evident, although they have not yet admitted it: mandatory universal preventative mental health evaluations for everyone in order to identify peoples as mentally ill – and cure them – before someone gets hold of a gun and goes on a shooting rampage.

    Once the media-government begins proposing this mandatory universal preventative mental health evaluation it will be very easy for them to demonize anyone who opposes this policy.

    Who, after all, could possibly be against mandatory universal mental health evaluations that will prevent mass shootings UNLESS they are mentally ill and dangerous? Why else would they resist? They must be paranoid, gun-toting, nutcase “truther” conspiracy theorists who irrationally fear the government, which is all the more reason to disarm, institutionalize, and cure them now, before they harm someone, especially our children.

    The individual independent thinker who is suspicious of government is no match for the groupthink mentality of the vast majority of the population, which has been inculcated by mass media-government propaganda, and has created hundreds of millions of brainwashed, unthinking true believers who will believe and do anything the media-government tells them to believe and do, believing the government knows best and always has their best interests in mind.

    In Jonestown, the true believers obediently drank the kool-aid and went to their deaths whilst praising their magnificent leader for having loved and saved them, whilst the independent thinkers resisted and were shot or ran into the jungle.

    • Ajmacdonaldjr’s comment echoes what I’ve been arguing since first hearing about the events in Sandy Hook. The idea that this is a “mental health problem” is probably the most dangerous position of all, especially when combined with the coming full implementation of Obamacare where our medical records are going to be kept electronically in a national database to which the government has full access. There are two equally scary possible consequences of this – one being that individuals will be deemed mentally unstable if they so much as seek counseling for depression or for help dealing with a major event in their lives (divorce, death of a loved one, etc.) and therefore unfit to own a firearm, and the other being that out of fear of this happening, people who may actually need help will refuse to seek it. This is a position that I’ve heard very few people take, but it was one of the first things to occur me when the gun debate started and a position that my fiancé and I have argued over many times, until just last week when he admitted to me that he now sees my point and is growing equally concerned. Even the people fighting the hardest against new gun control laws agree that what we have is a broken mental health care system and argue that this is where we should be focusing our attention.
