In mid 2021, I wrote a series of articles that I called Playbooks, an entry under the topic of Strategies Behind the NWO. In particular, I wrote Playbook: The COVID Pandemic. At the time it was a list of measures that in normal times would have been seen as extreme and something that one would find under a totalitarian regime such as the former Communist East Germany. Of course, many new tactics could now be added if I were to update the article.

A key point of the playbook was that it lead me to develop the idea of Justification: a means to make any behaviour socially acceptable. A primary tool for developing a justification and hence, control over a population, is the use of fear, as in the fear of dying of COVID. Fear in turn is studied in The Psychology of Control and is one of the primary tactics used by authorities to induce mass psychosis.

Fear needs a vehicle to convey it and such is the role of a narrative. In The Role of Narratives, I explore a number of dimensions of the subject, particularly focusing on its role in cults as the framework to entrap and control adherents.

CJ Hopkins, in a series of three essays titled “The Covidian Cult: Parts I, II and III“, shows how the COVID response from authorities has been used to create a deliberate mass psychosis giving them virtually complete control of the global population as an aspect of an emerging totalitarian state. Part III is in part a summary so here are some key quotes:

In The Covidian Cult (Part I) and (Part II), I characterized the so-called “New Normal” as a “global totalitarian ideological movement.” … a new form of totalitarianism, a globalized, pathologized, depoliticized form, which is being systematically implemented under the guise of “protecting the public health.”

The Covidian Cult (Part III)

Hopkins identifies global capitalism or “GloboCap” as the dominant force in the world today. It is a totalitarian structure that manufactures what we view and experience as reality. Our latest version of reality was introduced in the spring of 2020 as the COVID war, replacing the earlier synthetic construct, the war on terror, that had been guiding society. This ‘new normal’ is what Hopkins calls the “Covidian Cult“.

Then he captures the essence of the manifestation of this cult whose members are sometimes referrer to by others as the ‘sheeple’ or as ‘normies’. It is

… a cult writ large, on a societal scale. Anyone who has tried to get through to them can confirm the accuracy of that analogy. You can show them the facts until you’re blue in the face. It will not make the slightest difference. You think you are having a debate over facts, but you are not. You are threatening their new “reality.” You think you are struggling to get them to think rationally. You are not. What you are is a heretic, an agent of demonic forces, an enemy of all that is “real” and “true.”

The simple fact of the matter is, you can’t talk people out of a cult, and you can’t talk them out of totalitarianism.


We, a small isolated remnant have no possibility of converting the cult. But Hopkins has an ingenious solution:


You do not try to thwart its progress; you push it toward its logical conclusion. You make it manifest its full expression, because that it when it implodes, and dies. You do not do that by being polite, conciliatory, or avoiding conflict. You do that by generating as much internal conflict within the cult as you can.

In short, the totalitarian new world order will collapse of its own accord as every totalitarian system has done in the past. Therefore, do whatever you can to push it towards its unattainable goals. He explains:

Stop arguing against them on the grounds that they [pandemic rules] don’t work. Of course they don’t work, but that is not the point (and arguing that way sucks you into their “reality”). Oppose them because of what they are, a collection of bizarre compliance rituals performed to cement allegiance to the cult and create a general atmosphere of “deadly pandemic.”


In Conspiracy Theory I developed an attack/response strategy. When attacked, you have three options:

  1. Ignore it;
  2. defend your position; or
  3. attack the attacker.

The first is a neutral strategy that should be adopted only after a cost/benefit analysis. Ask yourself what it will cost you in terms of peace of mind, personal safety, or other subjective measures. The second strategy is the one most people adopt and it is the worst. It leaves your opponent always in control, a position that you cannot argue your way out of.

The best strategy is the third. Do not engage on your opponent’s terms but force him/her into a defensive position leaving you in control. The cult member is living in a state of severe cognitive dissonance. He has been told not to wear a mask, wear a mask outdoors, wear a mask indoors only, wear two masks, etc. The same with vaccines. They protect you, you still get COVID, you still have to wear a mask and socially distance, you can still die from COVID, etc.

These poor people have been entrapped and controlled by the state through fear. Play into their fear and you become in control. They will either snap out of it or just snap. But that is the only way forward, out of the totalitarian state that has engulfed us

I started a blog in 2011 called The POOG, an acronym for "pissed off old guy". This is the current incarnation.
