The COVID-19 pandemic has once again – maybe more than ever – highlighted the divisions that now exist in humanity, at least in the West. On the one hand, we have those who accept that this is a reality and who choose to follow government guidelines in dealing with the pandemic. These are the people the alt media likes to brand as “sheeple”, the ones who largely spend their lives following official and mainstream narratives. On the other hand, we have those who do not accept the official narrative and are positioning themselves against governments and against what they perceive as a Deep State conspiracy. They are those who like to brand themselves as “awake”, those who have vehemently rejected almost all of the official and mainstream narrative.
However, unbeknownst to most, there is a third category… while in a tiny minority, this category of people sits right in the middle, seeing validity in both sides of the argument and forming their views based on solid evidence and common logic, not letting their own emotions and conformational bias get in the way of seeking the truth. This category is the ONLY category that has a future. Not necessarily because of their specific views, but because of how they arrived there. They are the observers, the philosophers, the pragmatists, the unbiased objective wisdom seekers. They are not led by fear or by their own egos, they have learned that those things don’t serve humanity. They have learned, sometimes through trial and error, that the only way to get to the reality of a given situation is to objectively analyse it from all angles, carefully assessing all the various iterations and thus arriving at a logical conclusion. By doing this, they will always be multiple steps ahead of everyone else. This is why it is often this category of people who are ridiculed, scoffed at, chewed up and spat out by the rest of society… until a few years or decades have passed, when the majority has finally caught up and realised that they made a mistake. There are countless examples of this in history.
Instead of daring to stare down the barrel of cold hard reality, humanity chooses time and time again to ridicule, argue, fight and violently oppose each other over one dogmatic belief or another. Whether it is bipartisan politics, whether it is religion, whether it is this “ism” or that “ism”, or whether it is Deep State or no Deep State, humanity repeats this same mistake over and over and over again. We hold each other hostage over a difference in opinion, religion, race, political preference, and the list goes on. We have somehow come to think that one’s belief defines one’s character and that there is no way we could possibly have anything in common if we hold opposite beliefs. But nothing could be farther from the truth.
We have somehow forgotten that we all share one common characteristic: humanity. We have forgotten that at the end of the day, most people can agree that they want a happier, more peaceful and more harmonious world to live in. So why do we keep doing the exact opposite? Why do we keep doing the very things that are only going to continue the perpetual cycle of insanity that has gripped the world for centuries? We all think we know the answers, we all think that our words and actions are justified for one reason or another. But are they? Isn’t this exactly the kind of bullshit we are trying to overcome? As the saying goes, the road to hell is often paved with good intentions.
Why is it so hard for us to connect with each other on a level that goes beyond all the superficial political, religious and other views? If a friend or a family has an opposing opinion, why do we feel it necessary to argue with them, sometimes even alienate them, as if a superficial belief is more important than the deep emotional bonds that lie at the core of our interactions? Isn’t it time that we re-prioritise the way we view other people? That a person’s character and what lies in their heart is so much more valuable than an opinion? That we can, and should, judge people only by how they treat those around them? Can’t we all agree that at the end of the day, the only thing that truly matters in life, and the only thing that is ever going to mend the insanity of the world, is real emotional connection?
When do we realise that changing the world starts with how we treat others around us, not with a government or an organisation or with the eradication of the Deep State? Do we not think that the only reason the Deep State has been able to do what it does is because of the divisions that exist between us? Remember that phrase the alt media likes to use to describe the Deep State’s tactics; divide and conquer? If we are not divided, they can’t conquer. So let’s stop playing right into their hands, letting ourselves be divided over and over again, like a bunch of fools. Let’s start engaging our minds instead of our fears and egos and heal the divisions that are keeping humanity enslaved.
Also, if I may be so bold as to suggest that one's 'beliefs' (right or wrong at the level of content, context or veracity) do NOT in fact have 'human rights', nor should they.
-Make what you will of that, and have a nice day!
I understand your point and totally agree.
I now preface any discussion with friends on these "hot" topics such as Covid, vaccines, climate change, gender, the economy etc with " this is just my opinion and I may be wrong" but ….
I do this so at the end of the discussion we can agree to disagree and the friendship remains intact.
Having said that 80% of my friends and some of my family think I am a complete
nutjob but you get that sometimes!
I am so confused as to where to even start the journey but this statement resounds deeply within me. If anyone can help me with more links to this third party stance, I would be ever so grateful.
Melissa, I suggest looking up the many essays that Charles Eisenstein wrote about the 'war mentality' that is desyroying us, and about 'interbeing' realizing our connection and onterdependence and the true love in our heart and that we are all only seeking our deepest needs to be met, as the way forward for humanity.
And also highly recommend this profound essay https://oneworldrenaissance.com/2021/01/23/holism-fragmentation-and-our-endangered-future-a-new-vision-and-a-new-hope/
Well put Paul, I am the third group, my wife tells me to stop preaching, she believes all that Boris comes out with, how we have been married 51 years, beggars belief.

People believe that the world is made up from beliefs and opinions, but it is not. It is made up from one truth, which pervades all things and is the property of all people.
A chosen people have found profit in making people believe and have an opinion. Thus, their media and their governments through their control of the money supply, can conveniently supply the opinions and beliefs.
It was the intention of Christianity to describe this difference to people, and to make reference to the criminal intentions of the Chosen People.
The Lord God of Israel when translated through the allegory means; the Leader State of the Chosen People. So, in effect the Knesset and Israel leads all the other States through their fiat fraud and Central banks.
Now, is the time to tell others about this and the imminent collapse of the fiat. Don’t be a Judas Iscariot, but preserve your Christian family and other families of the world.

Silver is money, a fact to be found in any dictionary!
But many channels on YouTube and websites function like little boxes; closed environments, detached from reality. This is so that people go further and further away from what matters.
Fiat collapse is imminent and a chosen people,(illegal to name) stand to lose their fiat fraud and financial system.
Now is the time to tell other people about it. Don’t be a Judas Iscariot, but preserve your Christian family and other families of the world.

Yes, you are correct that change begins with ourselves and how we treat others. A good example of this process was the ending of the Vietnam war. Personally, I disagreed with this war. Did I march against the government? Did I smoke marijuana in the street? No, neither of these. Instead I enlisted. I volunteered for four years in the Marine Corp. My service was exemplary, my attitude positive, my uniform pressed and perfect. By my example the war soon ended.
What's sad is, our leaders never seem to learn anything from our sacrifice.
Most of them, and their avoid service like the plague. Still so many are willing to follow them right off a cliff.
Cult of personality.
This unfortunatley is easier said than done, people are very emotional and will cling onto beliefs of polictics, race, religion(the One Wayers, the day the Other Worlders turn up ie Aliens), money and their relations with each other, yes lets strive for this Utopian ideal you might get this in pockets but man is way too primitive in its thinking to rise above itself and embrace becoming what I term a HEB Highly Evolved Being and is another 2 -3 centuries away from becoming a HEEB a Highly Evolved Enlightened Being.
But the third way exists in larger pockets than what is elluded in this article they sit in the center of the storm as a the Divine positions them as s/he feels fit all these people do is listen as best they can and walk in their Divine, these are probably your observers, phillosopher, pragmatists seekers of wisdom when the time comes the Divine lifts the veil or not as s/he feels. Right now some have taken the Noah route ie they are in their Ark and they are waiting for the Divine to close the door you know what happens after that?
Humanity and outright stupidity are not synonymous..
Our children are not being educated.
I don't think this argument is very valid. I get the point but all that is happening is what has always been happening. A struggle for power, control, and domination. It isn't just humans as it crosses species. The world will never be a fair place. The US empire has had the upper hand for all our lives (assuming we aren't too old). They have gotten corrupt, arrogant, and full of hubris. The DOD's plan of full spectrum dominance isn't a conspiracy theory. It is their pronounced policy.
The alt media has unsophisticated propaganda techniques and their reporting can often be inaccurate and emotional based instead of fact based. The central governments are sophisticated. They have their SPI-Bs and SAGEs per Laura Dodsworth's State of Fear. The US government has Hill & Knowlton and the Fors Marsh Group hired to do that work. They paid Fors Marsh $400 million on Covid messaging and behavioral modification strategies alone. These are well paid brilliant marketers and behavioral psychology PhDs. The Gov's essentially own the MSM who blasts their messaging at the public 24/7. The US government has massive military and local police forces. They have SWAT teams, intelligence agents, and aggressive crowd control strategies at their disposal. This is not in the slightest a level playing field. Step too far out of line and you will find out how much freedom you truly have. One side has internalized Big Brother from 1984. “Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.”
The alt side tries to understand. Tries to use logic. Tries to present facts. It is often sloppy, unorganized, and full of emotional outburst but they don't really seem to understand what they are up against. They are confused because they want the world to be a better place and it seems like it would be fairly easy to accomplish. Most of them think the government is just corrupt and taking care of themselves and if we just forced the issue and made them understand we could all work together. That isn't true. They don't want to work together. They want power. Complete and total power. Will they achieve it? Never completely but they will try and the USA may wind up looking a lot like the USSR for a long period of time. What is going to happen when the USA loses its position in the world? Assuming no nuclear war my guess is a totalitarian state for a period until that eventually collapses.
