What % of people are currently in this dangerous state of psychosis? Here we see a teacher, 3 police officers, and presumably the officers' boss all willing to go along with this stuff - only 35 years after the ending horrors of Stasi in their own country. Are they simply too young to remember what that was all about? Is it not taught in German schools as an important part of national history?

They will. No one with an ounce of self-awareness would ever call the police on a child for a Smurf meme. These people will keep digging.

To be fair, she posted an AFD clip that had smurfs in it. Still, the AFD is a legal party and posting their clips must therefore be legal. As the police have said.

Try to home school in Germany, and your kids will be taken from you. German children are the property of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Off topic ... but Eugyppius's readers might be interested in my in-depth feature story on Richard Hirschman, the famous/infamous embalmer who first showed the world images of the “horrifying” clots he was seeing in up to 50 percent of the bodies he embalmed.

If you read or skim the story, please note the link I added about a medical professional who recently became a whistleblower and reported that doctors and nurses are removing these worm-like substances from patients “three to 10 times every week.” They are NOT forming only “post-mortem.”

Glad you noticed that new interview Bill - i was pleased to see you mention it the other day in your article - it is game changing in my view. Until now, senior pathologists in freedom movement assumed it must be a post-mortem phenomenon. (It does seem extraordinary that people can still be alive with this stuff in them - so one speculates whether it somehow suddenly starts forming rapidly - god only knows....)

Is there some way we can bring that interview to the attention of Steve Kirsch? That doctor's podcast is slightly obscure with not many viewers so Steve is probably unaware. He could then probably alert people like Ryan Cole to look into it.

Expand full comment

I've seen a video somewhere of Roger Hodgkinson (who I hugely respect and is a top pathologist) being asked about the white clots - at that time he said his best guess is they probably form post mortem. I'm not sure what Ryan Cole believes - but we know he has been analysing samples from Hirschman. Anyway very glad you are highlighting the new whistle blower re ante-mortem.

Hell Zimmerman probably called the attempted intimidation "democracy", because nothing screams "democracy" like government punishment without due process.

Even democracy will undergo killing, which is good, because this was always just a belief, never a reality. Schools are the antithesis to what democracy really could mean.

It's worth remembering that the State, in its purest essence, is the 'monopoly on violence'. It follows that its first purpose is to preserve its monopoly and shore up its own power.

ANY State, whether subject to democratic scrutiny or not, will not hesitate to use its monopoly on violence to preserve itself if it feels threatened.

Does the German State currently feel threatened? I think it does. I think it understands that it no longer governs (and is no longer capable of governing) with the full consent of the people. Thus threatened, it will resort to all and any means to protect itself from this threat. That includes ending democracy and imprisoning anyone whose speech contributes to an erosion of State control.

This is, by the way, the main reason why the State must always be kept in check, its resources limited and its reach curtailed. I cannot stress this enough: even in cases where a potential State intervention can yield unambiguously positive first order effects, we should think twice about letting it do so, because the second order effect of said intervention is always an increase in the State's own power and control and therefore an increase in its monopoly on violence.

Expand full comment

Check out the UZ-2

It depends a lot on what context you’re looking to use it in.

If you’re looking for something to carry on foot in a bugout situation then just get a backpacking filter but if you’re looking to something to process pond water at home while bugged in or even at a place you bugged out to then you can get more elaborate. I have two 55 gallon blue water barrels filled with tap water and I cycle through them twice a year. That covers, at most, 2 months of water for me. Beyond that I have a 350 gallon metal tank on a trailer I got from a farmer friend that I can use to get untreated water from my local natural sources. That water is suitable untreated for animals and garden. For human consumption I have a series of filters that I made. At the collection source I use a cloth to filter out solids as it goes into the tank. Then back at the farmstead the water flows from the tank through a bucket filled with clean construction sand as a secondary solids filter, then into a bucket filled with zeolite, then into a bucket filled with activated carbon, then into a 500 gallon holding tank. This water is fairly safe but I keep going. From there I pipe it into a small steam engine that runs a generator that charges a battery bank that is also connected to solar panels, the grid, and several other generators (wood gas, propane, and manual {bicycle, man-powered “wheel of pain”, and a horse/ mule/ ox-powered “wheel of pain”}) (I also have solar thermal panels, a shallow geothermal system, all plumbed to a set of insulated storage tanks acting as thermal batteries). The effluent steam that exists the steam engine passes through a radiator/ condenser then is collected into a metal tank. From there it is plumbed into a water softener/ remineralizer tank and then into a 1,500 gallon primary cistern. I also have a gray water system that collects all the non-toilet effluent water from the house and stead. That goes through a series of ponds that grow cattails and duck weed. There’s also a rainwater collection system and separate cistern.

Also, water towers for pressure.

Also, swales and ponds and permaculture-inspired water systems.

Lots of ways to get and process water.

Also, working on a passive atmospheric dehumidifier/ condenser/ dew collection system.

Multiple redundant systems mimicking nature enhance survivability.

Anything is better than nothing.

The second amendment alone isn't much, but it is something. It is like the recent purges from the police and military due to covid, fentanyl Floyd, and general anti-whitism. It is all well and good that Whites no longer are serving masters who don't act in their interest, but now we have a police force and military, however less competent, full of only enemies and complacent people. It would be another matter entirely if those who left the police and military formed or joined their own, superior, more friendly, organizations. Until that happens, the right to bear arms is not much of an impediment at all to systematic nudging and legalistic control used in the dispossession of us and ours. That is, organization comes prior to the utility of weapons.

Expand full comment

Nothing is perfect, I completely agree, and the situation could be far better. However, consider the fact that we are able to possess weapons individually and compare that to essentially the rest of the developed world's restrictions. We start in a far better place.

Expand full comment

Agreed. But I think a lot more is needed than just guns if one is to curtail the power of the State. For me, it comes down to sovereignty - sovereignty of the individual, the family and the community. The more control we have over our own lives, the less power the State will have over us. The good news is, there are a lot of things we can do, esp with some of the new tech out there. Power walls attached to solar arrays can help reduce grid dependence. And anyone can put in a garden/orchard to make your veg supply / fruit supply independent of glyphosate. Around my way, we and a few neighbours share a minitractor which we use for rotovation of our gardens, and for hauling firewood from the woods nearby

I've posted this before - but it remains apposite. At an evening of sketches, long ago at my UK university, I recall an undergrad (to become a famous comedian) standing up at a stage podium to deliver, in cod-German accent, a speech about what "is now being done about people who'd served in the Nazi regime"; how the courts were working under new "focused legislation" to track down "these people" who are "everywhere"; how kindergartens, schools, colleges and universities were at last refining their recruitment and personnel policies to assist the state in recognising the "traits", often well-hidden, of "so-called" ex-Nazis; how businesses and local authorities and the media were winkling out "the guilty" at every level, working "fearlessly with discipline and efficient intelligence", to identify "the foulness in our midst...these people who infect our new Germany" with their "diseased sub-human thoughts". As the sketch continued the actor's initially sober voice grew heated. His words came faster, adjectives amplified and given deeper emphasis with rigid hand and then arm gestures. The sympathetic and virtuous figure who'd begun the speech had slowly transformed, growing grimmer, glistening, reddening, and in a grand finale, showing a face contorted into a mask of enthusiastic - almost joyful - rage; flecks of spittle reaching the front row of the audience; even a little foam at the mouth - near apoplexy, rage and hate personified "there will at last be a final solution to this problem!". The silence before the applause was deafening.

Thank you for sharing that.

I have witnessed the very same thing in real life, from people advocating tolerance and inclusion only for them to - in the next sentence! - demand people who think and feel the wrong way be sent to camps for sensitivity training.

Now, we have real political kommissars who have veto powers over the literature chosen; a professor or tutor must let a board approve his/hers chosen literature, weighing it in the scales of race, gender and so on rather than scientific merit re: the subject matter.

Altho' humans have long repeated the maxim "History repeats itself".

The biggest lesson of the last 4 years is the number of 'impossible' things The State could do to it's own citizens. In this way the phrase 'just following orders' makes perfect sense - just keep low, don't attract attention, and everything will be fine. Of course, the last 4 years have shown the rabid leadership in many countries of the West have simply hopped onto the next available scare tactic, to keep everyone unsettled and thus compliant.

I see what went on just about 100 years ago - in spite of major differences - is a repeat, mainly among nations who didn't go through that convulsion then. Every day the bullying gets stronger, the behaviour more outrageous, the threats more real. Technology enables things to change in minutes which 100 years ago might have taken months. Malice is the constant, technology is unwitting enabler.

Just as you say, the construct eventually bit it's own founders, so this will happen again.

Findings would be based on a mere “balance of probabilities” standard rather than the criminal standard of proof beyond a reasonable doubt;

The Bill would increase the maximum sentence for “advocating genocide” from five years in prison to life in prison. That means words alone could lead to life imprisonment;

The Bill would allow judges to put prior restraints on people who they believe on reasonable grounds may commit speech crimes in the future;

The Bill would require social media companies to “minimize the risk that users of the service will be exposed to harmful content” with the threat of massive fines if they don’t properly mitigate the risk; &

The mere threat of human rights complaints and fines for Canadians and social media companies will chill large amounts of otherwise protected speech.

This Monday we launched a new campaign that allows visitors to our site to use a form to tell their MP to stop this bill.

You can do so here: https://theccf.ca/fix-c-63/

Please note that if you're in a riding with a vacancy you might not be able to contact your Member of Parliament. I'd encourage you to reach out to party leaders (including the PM) if you live in one of these ridings.

You are right. Trudeau is willfully idiotic. Actually were he only idiotic .... Have started researching the absolutely wild protection of pedophiles in health administrations in Canada. It is so glaring and almost unconcealed that it's nearly impossible to imagine it is not ignored or even approved of at highest levels of government.

Haven't found anything concrete about his alleged paraphilia(s). But however horrible that would be, it's on a different level than being a head of state determined to destroy your country and its people. He and Macron seem to be competing to see who can be the most demonic politician.

Here's the great Margaret Atwood on the bill https://www.theglobeandmail.com/politics/article-margaret-atwood-online-harms-bill/ and Jordan Peterson

https://nationalpost.com/opinion/jordan-peterson-online-harms

I thought the Canadian bill was the stuff of dystopian novels, Minority Report, but apparently Scotland will have little hate crime reporting centers, safe spaces for hate crime reporting, and police will spend all their time investigating these. Ireland going down too. New bureaucracy everywhere, shock troops of the agenda. The universities here in America seem to have layers and layers of DEI bureaucracy, and new censorship industrial complex bureaucracies, particularly at the Ivy Leagues, although the thrust here appears to be enraging every category of people with propaganda, not necessarily even built around a molecule of truth, which they hope will instigate some kind of violence to which they can respond by bypassing the First Amendment to keep people "safe". A NYT oped said the First Amendment is America's "Achilles Heel,' appealing to the grandiosity of the ostensibly educated.

Murthy vs. Biden will be adjudicated at the Supreme Court on Monday and Children's Health Defense will livestream this, with many dissidents to speak on the steps of the Supreme Court.

One of my very first jobs was as a telephone solicitor, offering months of dry cleaning if the person at the other end of the line could answer "What country gave the Statue of Liberty to the United States?" ( I was a kid, and people were more savvy to solicitations and would answer "Tierra del Fuego" to get rid of me lol) All I can think of now are all the B movies in which the statue is covered in water or moss or lying broken in the harbor. I am the last person anyone who knows me would call "patriotic," but this may be "the shot heard round the world". Everyone all over the world could watch and throw their attention towards the strange attractor of liberty.

Why not? When coffee was a new thing, some nations (including Sweden) tried outlawing it, for fears it induced something immoral and unnatural or other.

We had secret coffee shops here in the early 17th century, and I do mean actual coffee.

wow! minority report in action "... to prevent the girl in question from committing a crime." absolutely amazing to see that in action and, more shockingly, for it to be defended. and that they are "... so radicalised and deranged, as to inspire nervousness even among allies" is astounding, given what trudeau is doing in canada. on the other hand, these actions are in fact so out there that the fence sitters will soon not be anymore. it is likely a sign of the beginning of their end. thank you for sharing.

Phillip K Dick proves over and over again that he is a prophet...

As were Orwell, Huxley, and hundreds of other authors of dystopian fiction. Many of whom are now living to see their predictions unfold in the world around them.

Expand full comment

Dick… Orwell… Heinlein… Huxley… Bradbury… … …

At its core, dystopian fiction is a warning against complacency. By depicting societies where individuality is suppressed, knowledge is controlled, and human rights are disregarded, these stories compel readers to evaluate the fragility of the freedoms we often take for granted.

yes.

in a recent series of questions someone has been asking a question that i don't know the answer to. my paraphrase and extension of it is: to what extent were dick, orwell, huxley et al predictive programmers rather than cautionary visionaries? or is there even a difference? for sure i would like to think of orwell and dick as, at worst, cassandras. and now, with the entire world spun out of control, i am no longer sure of that! omg! i have discovered that everything is a house of cards. everything. so interesting.

Those who remain on the fence will find themselves chained to the fence and caught between the tides of war. Afterwards, their bones will jangle in the wind like windchimes clanking out a dirge of warning that cowardice will not go unnoticed nor unpunished.

yes. it is hard to get fence sitters to move. and so the hubris of the might grows until ...

we'll see. it might take the actual imprisonment of a school classroom of 12 year old non-whites to get them moving. since both greed and hubris are more stupefying than sex and so they will continue to overreach. it would be good for lots of people to read solzhenitsyn, where he described the immobility of the fence sitters. so.... let us all do our best to agitate with absolutely calmness to help the fearful relax from fear enough to move. big challenge! all the best.

It's like the "fence sitters" are frozen in fear. While physical courage is admirable, we are in dire need of more people with the MORAL COURAGE to speak up.(while we still can make a difference)

Triage -

noun

the preliminary assessment of patients or casualties in order to determine the urgency of their need for treatment and the nature of treatment required.

verb

conduct a preliminary assessment of (patients or casualties) in order to determine the urgency of their need for treatment and the nature of treatment required.

You cannot save everyone. Some are too far gone, many are not even worth saving. When the oxygen masks drop down from the ceiling put yours on first, then help your neighbor. Save yourself; first, last and always. The dead wreak no vengeance.

yup. agree.

actually, it is unlikely we can truly save even one person in this situation. at best we can perhaps inspire curiosity enough for the other to begin saving themselves.

(and thank you for providing the definition for triage. i've been slightly abusing its meaning and will rectify that going forward.)

all the best with what is.
