Superb piece of writing, Don 👍 I'm embarrassed to admit I spent the last 15+ years of my life duped into believing that a pole shift was literally just about to happen (I still think it is plausible but I no longer view any content related to this subject) due to a giant rogue planet transiting through our solar system. I saw all the signs and believed that the apocalypse was imminent every single year. Of course it hasn't happened and I lost all credibility among friends and family as a result. Also, I never bothered to apply myself in any real way in life or to make any future plans. So now I'm 40 and have no idea what I should be doing with my life, having wasted most of it thus far already. Anyway I forget what the hell point I was making. Sorry for the rant. Thank you again for your writing 🙏

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed and hence clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

Excellent blog. They screwed up their plan, though. I don't think they counted on so many of us saying, "No, thanks!" to the jab, so they are killing off the compliant at a greater rate. The non-compliant, in the meantime, are the ones mostly having kids (because we also don't comply with the climate change mandates). They are going to be in for a huge reckoning in 30 years!

Ye though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no evil.

My only real fear always and has been being consigned to the pit of hell for living an immoral life.

So how did you miss those "duck and cover drills"? Not that hiding under a wooden desk and holding you hands in front of your eyes was going to do anything in the face of a five megaton hydrogen bomb 250 times more powerful than what allegedly scorched Hiroshima. Some years later they had a scurrying to the fallout shelter in the basement, which made more sense, but was just a tad uncomfortable with all the other children being packed like sardines. I can only imagine what the place would have smelled like had we been there 5 hours, let alone five days.

I do miss so much not watching the news. Spy balloons, imploding submarines, crazy plane ladies, Trump indictments (Still have not seen the mug shot.)

Get back to me when we have a new pope, a new country, and all the pedos are in jail. (I suppose that would be a pretty big jail- heck, why not just give them everything north of the 83rd parallel and they can have at it with the arctic foxes and polar bears, who might avenge themselves of all the global warming the pedos caused.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us. You are our only hope!

In 1953 I was in first grade at Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception Grade School in Michigan City Indiana. I was always in fear of the windows being blown in from a Russian Atomic bomb. 13 years later I was a grunt in Viet nam and wounded in March of 67'. The ONLY thing that I now fear is that the American public does not have the balls to stand up to the scum that rule us. Those that we vote for are the puppets of the scum that rule us. I have no fear or despair; "They" are inferior to me and those like me.

I hate to add to your anxieties but I have been reading/listening to an amazing neurosurgeon named Jack Kruse. He says that taking melatonin supplements will thin your eye retina. "Never take a supplement for something your body is supposed to naturally make as it will shut down the pathway the body uses to make its own." Instead, he says the key to making more of it is to look toward the rising sun every morning for several minutes, which shuts down the sleeping phase of melatonin and signals your body to begin storing up melanin from UVA and UVB sunlight that then releases it during sleep. Artificial blue light (especially at night) from our laptops and phones at night is causing so much damage (depression, insomnia, and worse). There is much more to this but he stays in the sun as much as possible to increase the melanin which lines the walls of the mitochondria. Raised in New York, he now lives in Florida and is thinking of moving to Central America. It is all about maintaining our circadian rhythm. Something we had for thousands of years up until the last 100 years or so.

Great article Don. Thanks for sharing your personal life. Not enough writers do it. I grew up very poor so I always feared not having money. What a trap. Getting terminated for refusing the vaccine freed me. There's a loud sucking sound coming from my savings account. I don't fucking care. I've almost completely checked out of the money system. "Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God."--Luke 6:20-21

I'll take it.

Well, Donald, take heart. At least in the FEMA camps, or gulags, all the best people will be there.

What helped me the most in shedding irrational fear was eliminating TV from my life, especially TV news. I came to regard TV as "The Fear Box", since the entire aim of TV programming was obviously the instillation of fear in viewers. In 2015, I was in a nursing home, supposedly getting physical therapy after a car wreck caused some severe injuries.

The week that I was supposed to get out to go home, a hurricane was threatening the Eastern Seaboard. I was getting weather reports secondhand from other patents who flocked into the TV room to watch. One of my fellow patients who took as dim a view of the news as I did, rolled past my room and stopped to tell me that the latest news was that the hurricane wouldn't make landfall anywhere near us, but that we were supposed to be afraid anyway.

TV news addicts always seem to be scared of something new every day. I'm glad I don't subscribe to their habit anymore, though it has taken me 20+ years to recover from that addiction.

Extremely well written and completely To The Point! I clearly remember the "fear" of the Commies and a nuclear explosion while attending the Catholic grade school. We were supposed to hide under our desks like that was going to do anything? As a child, what did I know? My father built a bomb shelter next to our basement and we never used it. Looking back over my 68 years has absolutely shown me that Evil is pulling rank, for now. What will it take to stop it all? History doesn't repeat itself? Sure does and it just keeps getting worse! I have never taken any jabs and they can all go straight to hell because I see this as you have so eloquently described, Fear Porn. Our government didn't take in all those Nazi scientists for nothing! They should have been hung!

Fallout shelters didn't need doors, just something to prevent the fallout from falling in.

My sister and I used to sit on her bed and laugh at the neighbors that ran into the fallout shelter in the backyard of the next door neighbor every time a tornado warning was announced, knowing that if one touched down there, we would get to watch them get sucked out of it.

When a tornado touched down in the employee parking lot of Denver International Airport in 1999, after everyone in the main terminal had been sequestered in the underground spaces that are still not admitted to exist, I watched it from the ground transportation holding lot, a mile away.

While almost all of my fellow, mostly immigrant, taxicab drivers were driving around on the airport's vast road system in terror of what they didn't understand, I moved from the back of a 300+ line of taxicabs to the front of the line, one of the first five to go to the terminal when it reopened.

The terror of tornadoes, in my experience, has always done more damage than the tornado.

Just like tornadoes, most natural disasters are best planned for than suffered through.

The same situation will apply to the Great Recession when it finally arrives.

9 months ago I fell in the parking lot of the local grocery store. I smashed my hip to bits. I spent four days in the hospital last Thanksgiving and was in surgery for 3.5 hours. It has been nine months now since then and I'm still gimping around and using a walking stick sometimes.

I was afraid to go out into the world so I went out into the world. I went to the pizza place. I even went back to the grocery store a few times.

What's the old saying, "If the horse throws you, get back in the saddle as soon as you can."

Don, thanks again for your excellent work. I enjoyed this piece. Fear is everywhere. I have finished reading Masking the Truth. Great book. So many facts to show what really happened. Everyone must read it to prepare their mind and soul before act II of C19.

By the way, concerning sleep, I use vitamin B1. Right before bedtime. Amazing results for me.
