Bowing to Authority: the Real Contagion of Our Time


There must be some powerful subconscious process at work throughout a large swathe of the population to cause such a high percentage to do what they are told, in spite of the fact that what they are told to do lacks any practical justification or logical explanation and is highly likely to harm them.

Examples abound. One of the most stark is ‘the great Covid mask wearing scam’. Why would anyone go along with the order to wear such a mask? With the minimal amount of research one would instantly recognise it to be a useless bit of cloth/paper that restricts one’s breathing and makes one look like a criminal.

Why would anyone trust and follow the advice of a politician who demonstrates no understanding of that which he demands his constituents conform to?

How could anyone capable of independent thought – without even stopping to reflect – consider that some editorial in the corporate backed mainstream media represents the voice of reason?

Why would anyone unquestioningly fall in line with an announcement on the BBC telling viewers to denounce someone who chooses not to vaccine herself? And so forth and so on.

Deep in our psyches there must be a strong predetermined need to conform. To choose ‘political correctness’ and uncritical obeisance to the instructions of authority figures and so called ‘experts’. Something that causes people to fall on their knees to a certain kind of figurehead, without ever bothering to check the authenticity of that person’s proclamations.

It is particularly apparent how TV exerts such an instantly subversive effect on people’s judgement. “I saw him on TV!”says the exited being justifying his reason for giving special importance to the words and views of that individual. It’s enough that this person ‘appeared’ on the hallowed screen. To appear on TV gives someone an instantly superior status to someone of a similar standing who doesn’t.

The authenticity of the TV company or journalist is rarely questioned. National TV stations have developed a carefully crafted ‘aura of authority’ and those who appear on them are elevated into a category of ‘important’ even if what they say is sheer gibberish.

Like the reaction to the doctor in his white coat and stethoscope – the majority appear to loose all sense of balance when this mythic figure comes through the door and says “What seems to be the problem?”

This form of obeisance to authority is age old. And one of its key authority icons is a figurehead called ‘god’.

How many reading this were raised on a diet of Old and New Testaments? The old one, as I recall, was chock-full of pronouncements by a highly dictatorial god. An authority particularly keen on vengeance and war, who used ‘fear of disobedience’ to ensure that his lofty position was never under serious threat.

It was hard not to feel a sense of awe concerning this god’s seemingly omniscient powers.

Then moving on, we find this same highly authoritarian figure punishing Adam and Eve for having dared to take a bite from a particularly alluring apple. ‘The forbidden fruit.’ Something this god had specifically ordered them not to do “Do not eat from the tree of knowledge” said he.

Now why on earth would he give that order? Nature surely gave that apple a special aura, a natural attraction that would appeal directly to one’s taste buds and sense of curiosity – God given gifts of every human being, after all. And if this apple also grew on ‘the tree of knowledge’, well, one would be doubly tempted to pluck it and take a bite. Well I would – wouldn’t you?

But oh, what disaster – Adam and Eve had the timerity to disobey the authority of some heavenly control freak – and got the boot from the Garden of Eden. What Adam and Eve were subsequently accused of is referred to as ‘the original sin’. But is it a sin to to defy the word of some irrational god who wants to control the behaviour of two prototypes of humanity?

The whole tribe of man has been suffering under the yoke of this false ‘proclamation of guilt’ ever since.*

I see here a powerful myth which, to this day, works on the psyche of those who follow the commands of those deemed to be ‘higher’ than them. Adam and Eve, for me, were the first properly documented practitioners of ‘civil disobedience’. There is something distinctly heroic about their defiance of ‘the word of god’.

In this bold act I recognise a very necessary breaking out from a state (and place) of child like innocence in which one’s ‘freedom’ is dependent upon unquestioningly obeying the father figure and having no true mind of one’s own. We are talking about adults, not children.

Yet all around are those who appear to have not yet discovered that they have a mind of their own, especially when coming-up against those who get up on their political pedestals to declare “You must vaccinate yourself”. “You must not leave your home”. “You must be afraid of Covid”. “You must trust us.”

What about to trust yourself? Who is advising one to do this?

To trust one’s self is to trust one’s powers of discernment. To trust one’s intuition, one’s ability to be aware – and one’s ability to say ‘NO’.

That ‘self’ which you grow to trust above all else, is a conduit of cosmic consciousness, a fragment of the divine. By getting on good terms with this ‘self’ you discover that you are following the path of truth and thereby overcoming the fake authority figures who want you to buy their lie and abandon your precious freedom for their deadly protection.

At this very moment hundreds of millions are finding in themselves this treasure and learning to trust it. What’s more they are finding themselves attracted to the same richness in others – and are getting together as part of a powerful global resistance movement.

It is this movement that is destined to topple the sterile gods from their hollow narcissistic thrones.

For those who are addicted to bowing to the fake gods, this is going to be a rough ride. Freedom involves using one’s mind; taking responsibility; forming creative relationships and becoming a mature human being.

Those fearful of moving down this road will thus remain trapped in their less than human slavery. But once their dark protectors have been forced to flee by the rising tide of manifest truth – where will they hide?

The turning point for most comes at the moment our comfort zone diversions have all but dried up. When the chimeric ‘authority’ we allowed to run the show is no longer there to be blamed for a continual backward slide into slavery, a void opens-up. A void which those addicted to the old fake order will find themselves a part of.

While those already freed from compromised dependency on the rules of the matrix, will come together, joined in the liberating pursuit of encouraging the manifestation an enlightened new era. Those who have been through the fire and come out the other side freed from illusion.

Covid has done us a favour. It has given us the chance to finally face our delusional addictions and to see that ‘the authorities’ pushing this egregious lie are nothing more or less than the hired hands of a Lucifer infected criminal cabal.

If we want never to be fooled again we have to be fully cured from the contagion of deference to false gods and sickly bowing to fake authorities.

The time has come to unsheath our swords, caste out the demons and regain our self respect – as warriors of Truth.
