Neil Oliver returns from a few weeks of holiday to hit this monologue out of the park. It’s almost as if Neil and I had sat down and shared a cup of tea.
Comrades, in this wake-up monologue Oliver hits on the key dynamic we have discussed, we are in an abusive relationship with government. We are being oppressed and held captive by our inability to come to terms with the nature of this relationship. We are suffering through battered citizen syndrome, thinking that if we just bear through the next round of beatings the abuser will change.
Neil Oliver hits another key point, something you also might find familiar. The gaslighting around us that feeds and maintains the nature of the abusive relationship is based on the entire community around us “pretending” we are not being abused. Oliver then folds in the bigger picture and agenda behind, Build Back Better. WATCH:
It’s desperately necessary for our survival that we become disillusioned–and quickly.
Think about that word: Dis-illusioned. Having illusions exposed and removing them from the decision-making process.
Getting disillusioned quicky is important, because when illusions are defended, protected and argued for, instead of being exposed, they will always take us to default decisions that are inherently based on non-reality. This is where the pretending comes from.
Isaac Newton said that passivity in objects was predictable. Perhaps passivity in troubled humans is predictable as well.
Newton said it this way with regard to objects: “An object that is at rest will stay at rest unless an unbalanced force act upon it.” So, it appears we need an unbalanced force to act upon these passively willing objects that are content to remain at rest. That unbalanced force is Donald J Trump.
