Column #313 September 3, 2021
This week we were cancelled by Constant Contact, our email mailing house, because they say we can ruin their reputation! The issue they have is that I had a link in a newsletter that went to Mike Lindell’s election cyber security forum. Unbeknownst to me, that website address had been listed (for an unspecified reason) on spamhaus.org.
Here’s how Spamhaus describes themselves: “The Spamhaus Project is an international nonprofit organization that tracks spam and related cyber threats such as phishing, malware and botnets, provides realtime actionable and highly accurate threat intelligence to the Internet's major networks, corporations and security vendors, and works with law enforcement agencies to identify and pursue spam and malware sources worldwide.”1
I have no idea what they are referring to, but whatever it is, we got cancelled by Constant Contact. Until we get established with a new mailing house, we can’t send out our newsletters. Interestingly, this dovetails nicely with the column I had planned for this week.
In his “Saturday 7" newsletter Kevin Stock had an interesting story about an evaluation of people and their tendency, or lack thereof, to think for themselves. I found it rather shocking. It also explains a lot about what’s going on these days. Here’s what he wrote:2
“At the core of ‘agency’ is the ability to ‘think for yourself.’ A strange concept...I mean, who else is going to think for you? But there are some very interesting experiments that show how easily we can lose the ability to think and act for ourselves.
“Dr. Stanley Milgram, now considered one of the most influential psychologists of the 20th century, designed an experiment where people were ordered to administer dangerous shocks to volunteers (they were fake shocks but the subjects giving them didn't know this).3
“‘Contradicting the predictions of every expert he polled, Milgram found that more than seventy percent of the subjects administered what they thought might be fatal shocks to an innocent stranger...this groundbreaking work demonstrated the human tendency to obey commands issued by an authority figure.’4
“The ‘Milgram Experiment’ was repeated by Derren Brown more recently with similar results and there’s a video of the people. When I read / watch these experiments, it seems all the subjects have ‘gut’ feelings that shocking these innocent people is wrong, in that they are inherently good people, but still do it.”5
For most of the presidential elections of the past who-knows-how-many decades, Washington, D.C. voters have voted 90% Democrat. When there have been Republican presidents, even liberal ones, government bureaucracies fought against them tooth and nail. When the presidents were Democrat, the government bureaucracies mostly supported them, covered for them, and actually protected them from criticism. To make things worse, legislators have given bureaucrats almost unlimited powers to “make rules.”
For example in 2016, Federal departments, agencies, and commissions issued 3,853 rules, while Congress passed and the president signed 214 bills into law—a ratio of 18 rules for every law. In the decade leading up to 2016, the average was 27 rules for every legislative law.
The bureaucrats are just like the people in Milgram’s experiment who were ordered to administer dangerous shocks to another person—all in the name of making sure the other person did the right thing. Now, maybe you can see why everything is seemingly being managed to fail in the worst way. There are some “authorities” who are issuing orders for their own agendas—not the agenda that permits Americans to be the best they can be in making America a better country for Americans.
Just like when the German Nazis rounded up the Jews and sent them to their deaths by the millions, people can be ordered to do very horrible things. So we end up with events like these:
● Open borders
● Exploding government borrowing
● Excessive Federal government subsidies that enslave citizens
● The military teaching CRT and radical social concepts
● An Afghanistan pullout that was structured to demoralize the Afghan defense forces
● A pullout that left the Taliban with sophisticated weapons
● Making it a crime to discuss election fraud
● Vaccination demands being totally contrary to science
● Vaccine side effects being swept under the rug.
● Masking mandates that ignore the inability of masks capture virus particles
● A Fed that prints money willy-nilly
● Natural immunity is ignored as protection against disease
● Children are kept out of school and are forced to wear masks and in some cases are vaccinated
● Governments are creating division in society rather than unity
● . . . and this is still the short list.
