Are You a Good German or a Badass German?
“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.”
—Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Time’s up. Pencils down.
The first phase of the Obedience-Prison-Conformity experiment is over. How’d you do?
If you ever wondered how you would have behaved in Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, Mussolinian Italy, Ceaușescuian Romania, or China (Maoist or contemporary1), now you know.
If you ever wondered how you would have reacted to the Milgram Obedience Experiment, now you know.
If you ever wondered how you would have fared in the Stanford Prison Experiment, now you know.
If you ever wondered how you would have the done on the Asch Conformity Test, now you know.
If you ever wondered whether you would have turned around in the elevator, now you know.
If you ever wondered whether you would have acted courageously, indifferently, or sadistically in times of brutality and genocide, now you know.
The past two years have been an extended episode of What Would You Do? So … what did you do?
Are you a Good German or a Badass German?
Let’s check your answers. No cheating—you can’t go back and change them now.
Trust your government?
Believe their propaganda?
Fear what they told you to fear?
Dismiss what they told you to dismiss?
Hate whom they told you to hate?
Inhabit their manufactured illusion?
Delegate your thinking to fact-chokers?
Suppress your conscience?
Follow their rules?
Go with the herd?
Fail to question?
Pass their obedience test?
Accept BigPharma into your heart?
Become an experimental subject?
Relinquish your independence?
Behave in a cowardly manner?
Remain silent in the face of corruption, injustice, bullying, discrimination, and democide?
Censor, cancel, block, and blame those who didn’t do any of the above?
Commiserations, you are a Good German. You did everything your felonious, fraudulent, fatal fascist regime told you to do. You complied with tyrants. You yielded to brainwashing. You embraced ignorance. You became a Covidian. You compromised your values. You tattled on dissidents. You called them idiots, racists, and misogynists. You wanted them to lose access to medical treatment. You cheered on intolerance. You enabled tyranny. You denied democide. You directly or indirectly caused the poverty, suffering, and deaths of millions. You won a lifetime of shame.
Congratulations, you are a Badass German. You exercised logic; reason; integrity; empathy; and critical, independent thinking. You did research. You took responsibility for your own knowledge. You spoke out. You exhibited moral courage. You defended the bullied. You fulfilled your Tenth Man duty. You retained your humanity. You resisted tyranny. You said, “NO!” You directly or indirectly saved the lives, minds, and health of others. You won memories you can be proud of, no matter the outcome.
Maybe you answered YES to many of the above questions, but you now feel remorse for succumbing to mass formation, mass hysteria, menticide, behavioral psychologist–formulated nudges, groupthink, cognitive biases, mind control, thought reform, emotional manipulation, neurolinguistic programming, disinformation campaigns, psychological warfare, gaslighting, learned helplessness, Gell-Mann Amnesia, Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon, Biderman’s Chart of Coercion, Stockholm syndrome, information fractalization, Nelsonian knowledge—pretty much the whole shebang of mass control tactics, all efficiently disseminated via an internationally coordinated propaganda campaign lucratively deployed by mainstream media and Big Tech.
You might feel embarrassed, ashamed, or dismayed that you were so easily duped. Great! That’s called growth.
It means you possess the humility necessary to recognize you were indoctrinated into a cult and are now ready to recalibrate to objective reality.
It means you have broken the spell, and you are finally, after two interminable years, emerging from your hypnotic coma—only to discover you’ve traded your rights, freedoms, and health for a chimera projected on a screen.
It means you have seen the gorilla—and you will never again be able to not see him.
It means you are AWAKE. Welcome to Team Reality.
Congratulations, you passed your makeup exam.
You have a lot of catching up to do, but you’re off to a good start. Once you begin learning, you won’t want to stop. You’re in for a revelatory promenade down the Yellow Brick Road.
Like a strangulation victim who’s broken her abuser’s chokehold, you will inhale scientific evidence like oxygen, and the truth will gradually come into focus.
There’s something else you have to do. Or you should do, if you want to start healing the wounds you’ve inflicted on those who answered NO to the questions on the test.
You can say you’re sorry. It’s hard, I know. But it is worth it—and crucial to healing—for both sides.
In Rwanda, after the machetes had fallen from people’s hands and they realized they’d been propagandized by radio broadcasts into committing a 100-day killing spree against their neighbors, friends, parishioners, and even relatives, a multipronged approach was taken to justice:
1) International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda
On November 8, 1994—four months after the genocide’s halt on July 4—the UN Security Council established the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) to try high-level defendants such as “politicians, businessmen, high-ranking military and government officials, heads of media and religious leaders.” This twenty-one–year process yielded the indictment of ninety-three war criminals based on the testimonies of more than 3,000 witnesses over 5,800 days of proceedings.
2) National Courts
Lower-level suspects were tried by the national court system, resulting in twenty-two death sentences in 1998 before capital punishment was abolished in 2007. As many as 10,000 suspects had been tried by 2006.
3) Community Courts
In 2001, community courts known as gacaca were set up to cope with the backlog of 115,000 genocide cases. This decade-long process comprised weekly outdoor gatherings in which the perpetrators confessed to their crimes; the victims sat down with the accused and bore witness to the barbarities; and together, they sought truth, justice, and reconciliation.
Comparatively minor crimes were also handled by these local courts, which had prosecuted more than a million cases by the time the trials ended in 2011. Although a flawed process that failed to “provide equal justice to all victims of serious crimes committed in 1994,” it is still viewed as a model for reconciliation that:
“made use of a traditional dispute resolution forum to bring perpetrators face to face with victims and the broader community to confess and ask for forgiveness. Punishment ranged from prison time to community service but, importantly, it gave victims an opportunity to publicly speak their truth.”
Régine King, a university student at the time of the genocide who now teaches at the University of Calgary, described the outcome of the gacaca trials:
“It took me a while to understand that the country is just searching for ways to move forward and that shaped what you would call the official narrative, that if we’re going to live in the same neighbourhoods and have some taste of what it means to come back together, it had to happen in certain ways. It wasn’t going to restore what was lost, it wasn’t going to go back to what things used to be before, it was to devise ways forward.”
4) National Unity and Reconciliation Commission
In addition to the above avenues of justice, the Rwandan government set up the National Unity and Reconciliation Commission (NURC), whose mandate is to “promote unity, reconciliation, and social cohesion among Rwandans and build a country in which everyone has equal rights and contributing to good governance.” Initiated in 1999, the commission remains in operation to this day.
COVID Truth, Justice, & Reconciliation
To treat the gangrenous psychological, emotional, and physical injuries suffered by those who said “NO” at the hands of those who said “YES”—as well as the grievous trauma suffered by all people at the bloodied hands of the psychopathic puppetmasters—we need a similar multifaceted approach to pursuing truth, justice, and reconcilation.
Dr. Reiner Fuellmich and Viviane Fischer’s Berlin Corona Investigative Committee has already begun this process. They have been collecting testimonies from hundreds of experts since July 2020, and the fruits of those investigations were presented at the Grand Jury for the Court of Public Opinion in February 2022.
Now, we need an International Crime Tribunal in which the highest-level suspects undergo a rigorous trial exposing the breadth, depth, and height of their malfeasance and resulting in the conviction and severest punishment of those who have committed crimes against humanity, fraud, corruption, and associated war crimes.
Simultaneously, lower-level defendants should face justice at the national level in their respective countries.
Lastly, and this is where you come in, communities need to hold conversations at the local level so the guilty can confess their regrets to their victims and the victims can provide eyewitness testimonies. Face to face, we can see one another as fellow human beings as crimes are properly penalized while both parties progress toward peace and reconciliation.
Those who have suffered excruciating injuries and the losses of loved ones due to the injectable products and tyrannical COVID policies can share their stories while those who were complicit in coercing, injecting, and advocating for a democidal policy can confront their culpability.
This is the process of forgiveness. This is how we can reunite as a people and join together against those who divided, tortured, and massacred us. This is how we can dismantle the mechanisms that enabled these atrocities to be committed and prevent them from ever occurring again.
But first, you have some cramming to do before the final exam.
Hurry up. We’re late for tea with Dorothy. She’s waiting at the end of the rainbow wearing her red-pilled slippers.

New Paid Content!
I started “Are You a Good German or a Badass German?” a few months ago, but I was recently inspired to finish it after a lengthy (still ongoing) exchange with a Good German at my Facebook post on The Curious Incident of the Chemist in Daytime. I have detailed these exchanges in my Behind the Scenes series for paid subscribers:
The discussion continues, and I haven’t had a chance to add the new entries or respond to the latest silly statement, but subscribe now to read these as well as upcoming Behind the Scenes issues:
Washington State Board of Health: Initial Victory + Further Action Needed
In January, Dr. Zana Carver asked for my help with some alarming proposed legislation that was coming up for discussion at the January 12 Washington State Board of Health (WSBOH) meeting. This led to my writing Letter to the Washington State Board of Health, which I submitted as my public comment and many of you linked in your own comments.
I am excited to report a significant milestone in the battle to prevent WSBOH from mandating the injection of schoolchildren. After thousands of people voiced their objections, the technical advisory group (TAG) voted against the mandate!
BUT it was uncomfortably close—just seven votes in favor vs. six votes against and four undecided.
The WSBOH will make its final decision at the April 13 meeting. Zana provides more details in this post:
We have until Friday, April 8, at 5 pm PST to demand that the injection not be mandated for K–12 students. You can email your public comment to firstname.lastname@example.org, and feel free to include a link to my original Letter to the Washington State Board of Health:
Tell the EU Commission to End the COVID Passport
Also due April 8 (midnight Brussels time), public comments about the EU Commission’s proposed digital COVID passport can be submitted here.
FDA Meeting Followup
Children’s Health Defense provided a good recap of the April 6 FDA meeting, which superstar Dr. Meryl Nass live-blogged about here. They didn’t get to EUAs for mRNA injections of 0–5-aged kids, which gives us more time to keep fighting.
I was pretty confused about the agenda, and evidently, that was intentional, according to Dr. Diane Perlman:
“As the public is wising up, the FDA and CDC are upping their tactics, finding ways to evade new scrutiny and to continue to impose foregone approvals. Having bypassed normal procedures, the FDA, now rescheduled for tomorrow, April 6, might even authorize a 3-dose series of these mRNA shots, maybe without a vote. They are now being more secretive about their agenda.”
I asked Mathew Crawford for clarification about the agenda, and he didn’t know any more than me ;-)
I also asked Diane about it, and here’s what she had to say:
“They do not seem close to being ready to deal with 0 - 5. I think they are in crisis. They had lots of ‘technical’ difficulties - suspicious I didn’t see the public comments but imagine they far, far, far outshined the VRBPAC. Dr. Levy said, ‘We are at risk of doubling down on a failed strategy’ I am sure Meryl and Toby will be writing elucidating pieces on this.”
I listened to the entire public comment period and was proud of my siblings-in-resistance Dr. Jessica Rose and Mathew Crawford; fellow Substacker Josh Guetzkow; and British Medical Journal Senior Editor Peter Doshi:
The public comments also included a substantial number of heartrending testimonies from vaxx-injured individuals guaranteed to move anyone with a heart, soul, and conscience, provided there are any such specimens left in these regulatory agencies.
Sign the World Freedom Declaration!
The International COVID Summit has published The World Freedom Declaration. I have signed it and encourage you to sign as well if you agree with these demands for our fundamental rights, freedoms, and health.

I haven’t had a chance to take any classes myself, but I am particularly intrigued by How Not to Be Fooled by Mark McDonald, MD, fellow Substacker and author of United States of Fear, which I recently listened to on audiobook (perfect companion piece to Laura Dodsworth’s essential A State of Fear, which I just finished). The course description reads:
“Since 2020, the manipulation of mass perception of reality has become increasingly obvious to many people in the US, however, most people do not have a context within which to interpret this phenomenon. In this course, all aspects of the pathological basis, effects and tools of mass perception manipulation will be explored with a focus on historical and recent examples.”
Areas of study include Biology, Psychology, Law, and Analytics. Another example of an upcoming course is Wholistic Approaches to Human Health, taught by Dr. David Brownstein of the Center for Holistic Medicine.
Enrollment is currently open for the Summer/Fall 2022 term, so sign up now if you want to catch these classes before registration closes.
Here’s something fun. A fellow Substacker recently mentioned ranking high in the politics category at Substack—a considerable achievement. I think it might’ve been Toby Rogers, whose Stack I highly recommend.
I decided to see where I fall on my areas of focus and was delighted to discover my blog ranks #1 for tyranny—or at least it did, until JD Rucker joined and started End Medical Tyranny. Dang it. And now I have another Stack to add. Double dang it. I’m already drowning in Stacks and am trying hard to resist adding more. (Triple dang it—when I checked the link just now, I saw I’d been knocked down to #3, harrumph.)
Well, at least I’m still #1 for media narratives; #2 for totalitarianism (congrats to Winston Smith for making #1!), framing (just knocked out of #1), and democide; and #4 for propaganda (down from #3, arggh). As an English major, I was pleasantly surprised to find I’m #21 for literature and #65 for language. Somehow, I’m all the way down at #99 for COVID (Steve Kirsch is only at #71, so I don’t feel so bad). Something’s broken with that algorithm since that’s all Steve and I ever write about 😆 It was worth counting all the way through those, though, because it led me to discover Dr. Tess Lawrie (my first Profile in Courage) is now on Substack!
I haven’t done a big push to follow me on social media since I spend so little time there, but I realize it’s important that we have alternative ways to communicate with one another in case one avenue is throttled or disappeared. You’ll find links to my various accounts at my Biolink below. This way, you’ll get notifications about my new posts in case my newsletters wind up in spam, and I can communicate with you regarding Plan B should anything ever happen to Substack (heaven forfend).
I am nearing 6,300 on my mailing list—wow, you guys! And welcome to all my new readers! Some of you have made the additional effort to share on social media and suggest others sign up, too. Thank you for doing that! When kindreds reach out to kindreds, that helps build this community organically in a way that preserves the ethos and quality of the discussion.
Numerous people have informed me my newsletters are going into their spam. I’ve also had a few people tell me they’ve been unintentionally unsubscribed. Substack support told me that if an email is marked as spam, “emails from your publication will be disabled.”
This is worrisome as Google and other mail services sometimes arbitrarily mark emails as spam without people’s knowledge. I fear Big Tech will increasingly use this tactic to suppress Substack emails as this is one of the last frontiers of free speech in the technological galaxy.
All that to say, please check your spam folder and mark my newsletters as not-spam if you find them there. And if it’s ever been an unusually long time since you’ve heard from me, make sure you’re still subscribed.
Here are some tips from Substack on troubleshooting email issues.
I’ve recently had a few unsubs due to billing failures, so please double-check to ensure you’re still subscribed if you received a notice about that (I’m assuming Substack sends you a notice about subscription cancellation due to billing failures?).
Profiles in Courage: The Canadian Truckers
If you haven’t yet read my Profiles in Courage: The Canadian Truckers, I encourage you to do so:
I have invested more time in this article than any other piece I’ve written. Since the first rumblings of the Freedom Convoy in mid-January, I have been collecting, watching, reading, and absorbing hundreds of sources to understand the on-the-ground reality as accurately as possible. I feel honored to bear witness to this historic act of peaceful resistance and wanted to capture the nobility of the truckers; joyful atmosphere; and overwhelming feelings of love, unity, and harmony that characterized this organic movement.
“Holy cow. Your piece was brilliant beyond belief. Wow wow wow. So comprehensive in documenting both the beauty, courage.. and brutality. This one is for the history books. Margaret, I know the (American) Convoy organizers well, they will be thrilled, thanks for this am sending now.”
I will leave you with the music video I swapped in at the end of Profiles in Courage: The Canadian Truckers: This Just In by Five Times August as I don’t want you to miss it. It’s as if Brad Skistimas created it specifically for that article:
