“We Bokononists believe that humanity is organized into teams, teams that do God’s Will without ever discovering what they are doing. Such a team is called a karass by Bokonon …”
Excellent as always.
Ok, let’s take this from the realm of reading and accenting to doing. Let’s not look from afar with longing to MAA’s karass. After all 12k people is not an insignificant number. This conception by Vonnegut is analogous to an idea that I’ve been writing about for some time. I call it a network of relationships. It is a place of engagement. A place for problem solving, for information sharing, and the restoration of the institutional structure of society. I am suggesting that we each create our own network of relationships. If you gather five people of like mindedness to be your karass then we will see a network of networks begin to grow.
As I read your post, MAA the image that came to mind was a map of these networks. I travel a lot. Just back from seeing some family in Virginia. How great it would be to know that every town, every county, there is someone to stop, have a cup of coffee, and share support for the change process that we are in. A year ago I started a project called the Global Impact Network. I did it because I had friends worldwide who as leaders in their communities were isolated, feeling alone. I suspect many of you feel the same way. If you need help establishing yourself own karass, your own network of relationships for support. Reach out to me and we’ll talk. This is our future. No time to waste.
Great essay Margaret, thank you for reinforcing our mission and congrats on your wonderful achievement. I am also pleased to have surpassed 3,000 readers of my books on ResearchGate: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/358117070_THE_FINANCIAL_JIGSAW_-_PART_1_-_4th_Edition_2020
As regards your theme - our fellow travellers' joined in spiritual strength - I am pleased to say that I have no vaxxed friends in my family or my long-standing friends and relationships and thus can't comment on how this must feel to lose such valuable links.
Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ, an innocent man, was on trial for his life. Evil men were plotting to destroy him because he spoke the truth. To all outward appearances, it seemed that evil had triumphed.
However, the night before his execution, Jesus told his disciples: “I have conquered the world.” (John 16:33) What did he mean? In part, that the evil in the world had neither embittered him nor made him retaliate in like manner. The world had not squeezed him into an evil mould. (Romans 12:2,) Even when dying, he prayed on behalf of his executioners: “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34.)
The early Christians knew how to resist the Roman oppression and here we have the template to resist in our day too. The bullying elites 'appear to be strong but like all bullies, when finally confronted by honesty and truth, they run away as illustrated by the WEF handmaiden, Matt Hancock: https://expose-news.com/2022/07/18/matt-hancock-runs-and-hides-when-confronted/
"Once more into the breach dear friends......."
May your mailing list quickly grow to 12 million! May the "avalanches of evidence" sweep over the skulls of the comatose jabbed and wake them up. It's time for a worldwide awakening (not just USA) to end the obvious pandemic hoax.
Good suggestions re #StopTheShot and "philanthropath". Such guerrilla-style tactics, concise and pithy, can have a great effect. "#StoptheShot: Pull the shot off the market” should be everywhere one looks. Cut off the head of the snake. As Dr. Peter McCullough has said, the gene-based covid "vaccines" should have been pulled off the market by the end of January 2021 when their horrendous effects had become obvious to the victims and the authorities.
Another worthy community-building effort is The Flame, the free, truth-telling newspaper about the covid plandemic and related matters. It's an old-fashioned, physical newspaper, also available online (https://theflameusa.com). The Flame is similar in scope and outlook to other grassroots, people-funded newspapers: the UK paper The Light (https://thelightpaper.co.uk), its sister publication The Irish Light (https://irishlightpaper.com), and Canada's newspaper Druthers (https://druthers.net), all of which have helped spread awareness about what's going on.
I will share this little tidbit from my life. We live in a neighborhood with other snowbirds. We bought in the same community as Hub's brother and sister. When we are down there for the winter, it is a great time with snowbird Michigan family. We are half Idaho/half Florida residents now. Hubs sister is a militant product of the system, even after pulling through a harrowing cancer recovery. She did not go out for a year due to the fear. We were together in 2021 and there was organizational duties being laid out for an annual community yard sale. We were sitting in her living room talking about the conversation she had with the board, who asked her to work out at a front table. She let them know, in no uncertain terms, that she would not work out front where she could come into contact with "the un-vaccinated". It was said with such hate that I was totally taken aback. I looked at Hubs with big eyes over her head in an "Oh shit" moment. If she only knew she had one right in her living room and she lived...but she never will. There are just some things that are not worth talking about when minds will never be changed. It is not worth burning this bridge. Someday she may need us and who we are and what we stand for, but that day is not today.
Also, there is something that I wanted to tell you, Margaret. I am not sure if you already know it. There are people who argue that if the mRNA vaccines would have been introduced to depopulate the world, they would be administered in all countries while in reality, in many countries these vaccines are not administered.
However, since I know people from different countries in South America, I know that at least in 2 countries, Peru and Ecuador (probably this happens in more countries there), they received two Sinopharm vaccines.... and thereafter they received a booster with an mRNA vaccine... So this shows these mRNA vaccines are probably given to many more countries and people than many had previously expected.
I see this as a pivotal point in the human history and in the evolution of the human race. Nothing will ever be the same after this. The vaccine was a tool of the totalitarian’s mass psychosis machine. This tool was not designed or meant to kill. They didn’t want or expect to kill the same people they wished to control. They wanted control. This was a global power grab that has gone terribly wrong. The result will be the removal of a large percentage of the human brains on the planet that are susceptible to control by mass psychosis. Those who are left (the Pure Bloods) will build a new world when all this plays out. I write about this here in my SubStack newsletter: Repairing our Moral Compass and Saving our World https://lawrencebutts.substack.com/p/repairing-our-moral-compass-and-saving?r=gjogf&utm_medium=ios
It is my hope that in 500 years this time is remembered and a pledge is made each day to never let it happen again.
You are my hero....never stop telling the truth....... love you.....
Congrats on your 12K, and thank you for making your voice heard!
A beautiful missive to read first thing in the morning. I haven’t yet delved into all the links but I will at a more leisurely pace. Needless to say I understood the analogy, and perhaps only because I had to fight the good fight privately and personally - and won. I will share a little more on that in a later post. So glad to be part of the karass.
Thank you MAA
A writer's writer, an educator's educator.
Thank you Margaret Anna Alice!
Congratulations on reaching 12,000 readers. You deserve it. The movement needs them. I loved this essay. Thank you for sharing London Grammar. I haven't heard any new music in a while. This touched me.
Well I knew I would need another cup of coffee for a MAA post.
Beautiful and the Vonnegut references are perfect. Couldn't agree more - though I still sometimes feel compelled to argue (usually pointless) with the normies.
Yes time to focus on the waxing wampeter and create a new world. Just lovely. Thank you much and congrats on the 12 thousand plus!! I expect that will continue to climb, as it should, given the quality of your though-provoking, always insightful, heart-warming work, deserves.
holy cow... congratulations!💕🐱🌼🐱💕
Margaret, thank you for the fantastic article! You are a genius mind.
Although this may be a bit off topic, here are some data that I want everyone to know.
-A new analysis, published some days ago, of a study from Brazil with 220.000 participants shows that regular Ivermectin prophylaxis reduces covid hospitalizations by 100% and mortality by 90%.
"Regular use of ivermectin as prophylaxis for COVID-19 led up to 92% reduction in COVID-19 mortality rate in a dose-response manner: results of a prospective observational study of a strictly controlled population of 88,012 subjects among 223,128 participants"
-On the other hand, new analyses show that higher vaccination rates are associated with higher covid hospitalization rates. For example, see the article from bad cattitude substack.
"higher vaccine rates associated with greater rise in hospitalization"
-Joel Smalley reported about Scotland. What we do we see there? Much higher rates of covid hospitalizations following mass vaccination and especially following boosters. Also, in summer 2020 and 2021 there were almost no hospitalizations in Scotland. Now that most vulnerable people are boosted, there is a massive increase of hospitalizations in summer. Antigenic fixation. People like Dr. Yeadon had warned about it. We knew this would happen.
-See Alex Berenson Substack. The official data from Manitoba, Canada show that vaccinated people have a higher covid mortality than unvaccinated people. This data is age standardized and per 100.000 person years. So it is adjusted data. Triple vaccinated had the same mortality rate as unvaccinated. With time, I fear, their mortality risk will increase, too.
-See Igor Chubov Substack. An analysis from Hungary shows that the counties with the highest vaccination rates have a three times higher birth rate drop than the counties with the lowest vaccination rates. We do not know if this is temporary or permanent. If it is permanent, it would actually indicate the vaccines may have sterilized millions of people worldwide.
So we have more and more data showing that vaccination is associated with higher hospitalization rates and they may cause infertility and so many other problems. On the other hand, regular IVM reduces hospitalization by 100% according to this study.
So I wonder how massively hypnotized some people must be if they still do not wake up now.
Margaret, are you doing anything practical to build new communities? Please join my Telegram group for actionable tips! https://t.me/+pJoEfwigGRowNGI0
Thank you as always. I look forward to digging into the links. Also, I really enjoyed this article, "Buckle Up, Buttercup" that reminds us that "...we must not treat these tidbits as (supposed) information that are meant to raise our ire, we must instead classify them as mere data points. It’s pretty hard to get all worked up about a single point of data, wouldn’t you say?"
