The War on COVID-19: Man’s Final Conquest of Nature. The Great Reset Requires “Merging Humans with the Machine”

“Man’s conquest of nature, if the dreams of some scientific planners are realized, means the rule of a few hundreds of men over billions upon billions of men.”

In 1943, the writer and literature professor C.S. Lewis delivered a series of three evening lectures at King’s College, Newcastle. In the third and final part of his lecture series titled “The Abolition of Man,” he spoke of how science can be misused. A literary giant who is known for his pro-Christian texts linked the progress of science to man’s aspiration to dominate nature. Lewis stated, “Man’s conquest of nature, if the dreams of some scientific planners are realized, means the rule of a few hundreds of men over billions upon billions of men.”

Over half a century later, we are seeing “science”, in the hands of the few, being used to reshape the world.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the disintegration of the global economy which began unraveling in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. In mid 2020, as the economy had yet to recover, the World Economic Forum (WEF) announced its plan for a “Great Reset” to re-engineer the global economy as the world emerged from the pandemic.

Participants in the initiative include international governmental organizations such as the United Nations and its specialized agency the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as well as leading global corporations.

Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of WEF, called the initiative of the Great Reset “The Fourth Industrial Revolution” that opens up a new chapter for human development. Using science and advanced technology such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and genetic engineering, its stated goal is said to create a “fusion of our physical, digital and biological identity.”

Merging humans with the machine

Steps toward the merging of digital technologies and biological systems are already taking place with the idea of the immunity passport – a form of documentation that could prove a person has received the required number of shots of an approved Covid-19 vaccine. On August 27, 2021, the WHO released a guiding document for a digital certificate for COVID-19 vaccination status. Funded by organizations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation, it is intended that this digital information system be used to implement a vaccine passport in every country.

A COVID vaccination certificate system has been already rolled out in Israel, some European countries, and in US cities such as New York and San Francisco. Current uses for the vaccine passport include denying those who are unvaccinated access to restaurants, bars, gyms and trains. This program separates people based on health status and creates a system of medical and socio-economic apartheid.

Government issued QR-code health passes could be used to launch a China style authoritarian government program. With the use of big data, face recognition technology and machine learning, China’s social credit system monitors and regulates people’s behavior. It ranks them based on their ‘social credit’, rewarding ‘good’ citizens, while punishing ‘bad’ citizens.

Now, it looks like  China’s social scoring technocracy is coming to the West. Under algorithmic governance that enforces obedience and conformity, human beings will become automatons, not being able to make independent decisions about their own actions.

Internet of bodies

The enslavement of humanity in cyberspace is not the end goal. The convergence of biological and digital identity will bring about a radical transformation of human beings. Lewis recognized man’s aspiration to control nature would lead to the abolition of our humanity, and that the timing of this change was not far off:

“The final stage is come when Man by eugenics, by prenatal conditioning, and by an education and propaganda based on a perfect applied psychology, has obtained full control over himself. Human nature will be the last part of nature to surrender to Man. The battle will then be won.”

In the digital age, the advancement of technology is opening up many possibilities for human beings to transform themselves. By experimenting with a range of high-tech innovations, teams behind the Great Reset are now seeking to exploit this uncharted territory.

In July 2020, WEF published the white paper titled, “Shaping the Future of the Internet of Bodies: New Challenges of Technology Governance.” A 28-page document introduced the concept of the internet of bodies (IoB) as “the network of human bodies and data through connected sensors”. It explained how these sensors can be attached to human bodies through consumer wearable devices or “implanted within or ingested into human bodies to monitor, analyse and even modify human bodies and behavior.”

Those who are working to bring related products to market claim that the application of IoB could change human beings as a natural concept. Seizing the power of this technology, this can be viewed as an attempt to claim ownership of human bodies, to gain access to the thoughts, emotions and biorhythmic data of individuals. Their vision seeks to create a post-human society by transforming “the human body into a new technology platform.”

Politicization of public health

Capitalising on the ongoing pandemic, while people are kept in fear and uncertainty, the end game is being played out for man’s final conquest of nature. Those who aspire to eradicate the human race in its natural state steer the societal narrative in order to ensnare the population in their web of control.

Since it declared a global pandemic on March 11, 2020, the WHO has quickly positioned itself as the preeminent global health authority. With its own process of gathering data, research and evaluation, the organization has spearheaded global public health efforts, advising countries on how to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. They have published guidance as to how to minimize the risk of spreading, or catching the virus, together with its own website ‘myth-buster’, which purports to debunk what they deem to be unsubstantiated information or “medical misinformation” online.

In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a branch of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), working in partnership with the WHO, began to set guidelines and give recommendations. As new rules and restrictions have been put into place, the concept of ‘public health’ has become politicized.

From face mask policies to “lockdown” measures, corporate media framed the issues in a false dichotomy of liberal and conservative talking points. First, major media networks have dismissed anyone questioning the official pandemic narrative as “conspiracy theorists” and accused them of spreading harmful misinformation to the public. Then they indiscriminately labeled them as “Covid deniers,” and branded them as “far right,” or “Trumpers,” and “anti-science.”

Using the rhetoric of ‘protecting the vulnerable’ and elderly populations from the deadly virus, a moral sentiment was provoked. By flooding the media with images of maskless protesters defying a stay at home order and storming into grocery stores, television cable channels have managed to paint those who questioned the official pandemic response as selfish and reckless individuals who only care about their own individual freedom.

Psychological operation

In this politicization of public health, the liberal intelligentsia has tapped into the Democrats’ prolonged sense of victimhood and their deep seated hatred of Donald Trump. Media have successfully exploited the trauma felt by Democrats and Clinton supporters, endured during Trump’s four years in office, and effectively redirected their frustration and anger towards what is now being presented as a new opponent – the irresponsible, virus spreading “Covidiot” who continues to insist on exercising personal liberty.

Hedged into a narrow political spectrum, the political left has been encouraged to perceive conservatives as causing harm and ignoring the greater good. They see the situation as Republican leaders politicizing the pandemic with “FreeDumb” propaganda, as was expressed recently in this article on CounterPunch.

Meanwhile, those who oppose coronavirus restrictions are made to feel that progressives are infringing on the rights of those who do not agree with them. The dissenters develop animosity toward the Democrats who wear masks, in turn engaging in name-calling, such as ‘a bunch of obedient sheep blindly following the orders.’

What we are seeing now is a sophisticated psychological manipulation being conducted on the public. Psychological operations (PSYOPS) are techniques used by military and police forces to convey selected information to influence the perception of adversaries. It works on the values and belief systems of targeted individuals, manipulating emotions and reasoning to reinforce attitudes and behaviors that are favorable to the agendas of operators. This type of weaponized applied behavioral psychology  has been used by the U.S. military on the battlefield and political spheres in countries like Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, to demoralize enemy troops, foment civil unrest, and gain support of civilians so as to achieve the U.S. military objectives.

Both Americans and Europeans might be naïve to think that this type of operation will not be carried out against them in a domestic setting, yet coordinated intelligence operations have long been used to influence the public.

Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, psychological warfare has been waged against ordinary people in the U.S. and worldwide. Divide and conquer tactics create a fog of war, using algorithms to target people’s vulnerability and exploit their emotions. In this battle, the issue of vaccines has become a key issue to determine which side of the camps one is in, dividing family, breaking up friendships and marriages alike. These efforts have been reinforced by Silicon Valley tech giants who are actively steering and censoring the global discussion and debate on important public health topics, further manipulating the public and conjuring a fierce political fight on the social media platforms.

Battle for a moral narrative

Governments everywhere have been pushing a pro-vaccine narrative with inadequately supported claims of safety and effectiveness in terms of the product’s ability to stop the infection and spread of Covid-19.

For instance, the clinical trials of the experimental injections have yet to be completed (Moderna’s trials go to 2022, Pfizer’s until 2023) and there have been no studies of medium or long-term consequences (authorities insist there is no time to wait for this data because of the severity of the pandemic crisis) and adverse event risk analysis is woefully incomplete.

Also, recent reports have shown that vaccinated people can still transmit the virus, and it has been reported that the so-called “breakthrough” cases, now overwhelming in the most vaccinated countries, may be caused by vaccination. Furthermore, there is now a growing body of literature showing that natural immunity is superior in strength and longevity to vaccine-induced immunity.

Instead of engaging in fact-based debate to address doctors’ concerns and clarify contradictory reports, the Cable News Network invites in various medical experts who act like spokespeople for Big Pharma.

Concerted efforts of the legacy media have been used to suppress information on early treatment that could be beneficial to the public, paving the way for the perception that a vaccine is the only way to end the pandemic. With a message of “we are all in this together,” we were told we need to accept the government’s mandate “for the public good.”

Discourse that is not founded on medical facts and is wrapped up with the concept of public duty seems to have affected prominent liberal intellectuals like Noam Chomsky, and institutions such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) which recently issued a puzzling statement saying that the vaccine mandates further civil liberty.

Their virtue-signalling has influenced public opinion on the political left. Organized networks of self-righteous social justice activists have been quickly formed online to engage in the shaming and guilt-tripping of fellow citizens who dare to question or comment negatively on official policies, or who refuse to take the vaccine.

For instance, comedian and political commentator Jimmy Dore faced backlash on social media when he shared his own experience of adverse side effects after receiving his second dose of the Moderna Covid vaccine. In an interview with podcaster Joe Rogan, he said that people started to call him an ‘anti-vaxxer,’ and that he was pressured not to share any more information about his reactions.

Demonization of unvaccinated

The moral battle that has been engineered maintains its structure through marginalizing a certain population and assigning them negative attributes. From black, indigenous, and people of color, and other immigrants, governments have often used minority groups as a means of social control and source of blame for a country’s domestic problems. In the wake of 9/11, American Muslims were scapegoated for the terrifying reality of terrorism on U.S. soil. Now, in this Covid crisis, the unvaccinated have become a target for demonization. By using the phrase “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” President Joe Biden has portrayed unvaccinated people as those who pose a threat to public health, stopping society from moving forward.

Placing blame on the unvaccinated has helped spread a new type of discrimination. In some hospitals, doctors have begun to refuse to treat the unvaccinated, making those who are vaccinated a priority when resources are scarce. Vilification of those who have not gotten a shot has increased, such as when The Atlantic published an article from former Obama Homeland Security official Juliette Kayyem calling for unvaccinated people to be put on the No Fly List.

This type of discrimination can escalate quickly. Arne Duncan, who served as former President Obama’s Education Secretary for seven years, compared unvaccinated Americans to suicide bombers at the Kabul airport. In his tweet, he noted that anti-mask and anti-vax people “blow themselves up, inflict harm on those around them, and are convinced they are fighting for freedom.”

These wild imaginations have been acted out in other Western countries. In France, a woman who tried to enter a shopping mall without proof of vaccine passport was violently beaten by the security forces.

On the streets of Paris, police are using teargas during their confrontation with the protesters opposing the vaccine passport. Similar scenes can be seen in other countries.

New domestic terrorism

Now, with the rise of the allegedly highly contagious Delta variant, governments are intensifying their fight against the coronavirus. Accompanied by media fear mongering, the drumbeat for ‘the war on Covid-19’ is getting louder.

Earlier this month, on September 9, President Biden announced his intention to expand the executive branch’s power to require all federal workers to get vaccinated, while this mandate does not extend to members of Congress. He also stated his intention to force all private businesses with over 100 employees to get COVID vaccinations or be tested for coronavirus at least once a week.

During his announcement the President heaped even more disdain on the unvaccinated, saying they are “keeping us from turning the corner” and “making people sick, causing unvaccinated people to die.” He then said that the fight against the virus requires defeating those who are reluctant to get a shot, and that he intended to make them roll up their sleeves.

Biden’s forceful Covid-19 vaccine speech came at a time when his administration introduced the government’s new strategy to confront domestic terrorism. Journalist Whitney Webb reported that despite its stated aim of tackling “right-wing white supremacists”, the policy targets anyone who criticizes the government’s authority.

But who are the unvaccinated, now being treated like a dangerous virus that needs to be dispatched? In reality, they are not confined to some fringe element of society. They represent a broad range of professionals including police officers, military members, firefighters, teachers and students. They are physicians, nurses and other ‘essential’ workers who put their lives on the frontline during the pandemic – and are now told to take a jab or lose a job.

Silenced majority

The politicians and media pundits call those who are refusing to take doses “anti-vaxxers.” But many of them are not strictly anti-vaccine. Rather, they are anti government (or corporate) mandating of the vaccine. Most have had other vaccines previously, and vaccinated their children. Many have even taken the Covid vaccine. They are also those who came to a decision that a Covid-19 vaccine is not right for them, whether it is for medical, personal health or religious reasons. They believe in medical freedom and choose natural remedies; to eat wholesome food and work with the body’s innate capacity for healing. They are individuals who are standing up for bodily autonomy with the conviction that the government has no right to inject things that they don’t want into their body.

Mass media depict them as right-wing extremists, but they do not belong to either the left or the right. They are a silenced majority, being betrayed and abandoned by elected leaders and now being pushed into political exile.

Despite health officials calling them anti-science, many of them believe in science and hold a view that science requires rigorous studies and open debate. They are those who have acquired natural immunity because they already had the virus. They are people who were injured after the first dose and the doctor advised not to take a second dose. They are people whose immune systems are compromised and who cannot take a shot, even if they want to. They are parents who are concerned that their little children are categorized as disease reservoirs and do not want to accept medical treatment from manufacturers and healthcare providers that are shielded from legal liability.

While the vaccinated represent a largely privileged class in a society, among the majority of unvaccinated are poor and people of color from marginalized communities. Black people have been showing hesitancy because they distrust the government based on historic injustices like the Tuskegee experiment and other past experience of abuse at the hands of the government.

Awakening human heart

The war on Covid is a war on humanity. In this pandemic crisis, we have been made to be afraid of an invisible virus. The fear has frozen our hearts, making us afraid of our own neighbors. With the practice of social distancing, we have been conditioned to see each other as a threat from which we need to protect ourselves. Now, career politicians who have never once cared about public health are telling us that we have to sacrifice our freedom to bring society back to normal. They are now further dividing us into a new class of ‘vaxxed’ or ‘non-vaxxed’ to make us fight against one another.

With the vaccine mandate and digital ID, the movers of the Great Reset aim to open a new chapter for a society without humanity. Under the slogan “Build Back Better,” political leaders and activists around the world engage in a campaign, promising to create a fairer and greener future. Yet, the system that is built on exclusion of some brothers and sisters, separation and hatred can’t create a truly sustainable world that acknowledges the sacredness of all living beings.

In his book, Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis talked about the concept of progress, saying, “If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road.”

Hence, we can best evolve as a species through each of us returning to a path of nature and choosing to abide by the laws of human nature.

The future of civil society requires human beings who freely lay claim to their responsibility as stewards of this planet. Our willingness to confront our fears with courage can awaken our sense of shared humanity. This is the heart of our democracy that accepts diverse opinions and remains open to our radical differences. Through ordinary people, heart to heart in solidarity, a new network is being created that can bring a triumph of the human spirit.

Mark Dice’s ‘Vaccine Petition’ Social Experiment | Reveals the Inner Tyrant of Some Individuals

“They Want to Arrest and Jail All Unvaccinated Adults!”

Mark Dice, while presenting himself in a rather totalitarian stance – [perfect for the role he was playing] – was able to get several people to sign an incredibly dystopian-like petition to jail people who won’t take the vaccine. And if that wasn’t enough, ALSO mandate these injections by force, if necessary.

(An injection, by the way, that many doctors/scientists across the world are speaking out against, with claims that not only is the injection DEADLIER than the virus itself, but is actually a BIOWEAPON, specifically designed to attack the human body.

I would HIGHLY suggest everyone watch the interview with Dr. David Martin exposing the dangers of this “vaccine” with Stew Peters.)

A sample of some of the quotes that Mark Dice uses to entice the perhaps-not-so-secretly-domineering individuals into signing the petition are as follows:

“Will you support mandating the vaccine? A lot of people are still refusing to take it and they’re putting the rest of us at risk. So, we want to start mandating the vaccine, or start arresting these anti-vaxxers [petition signer: “Oh, I feel you.”] if they’re not going to follow the rules. […] I don’t want to hear any of this, ‘my body, my choice’ stuff in today’s new world order.”

[props to Mark Dice for keeping a straight face throughout these interactions.]

“So we’re going to start having them arrested if they refuse. [petitition signer: I agree.] To incarcerate the anti-vaxxers. I’m not sure what country they think they’re living in.”

“Some people are concerned about any possible long term side effects that haven’t shown up in studies yet, but, the time to worry about that is in the future. So, for now, they can worry about that in jail if they refuse to take the vaccine.”

“We want to mandate the vaccine. A lot of these anti-vaxxers still refusing to get vaccinated, but we still need some more signatures to make sure that we can arrest them if they refuse. Mandate the vaccine. We’re going to force them to take it. […] You know, it’s been long enough for them to make a decision, and so we’re going to make that decision for them. And if they refuse to take it, we’re going to have them arrested.”

“Yeah, we’re going to have to put them into, in a safe centers to keep them away from the rest of us. […] You know, desperate times call for desperate measures.”

“Our governor just mandated vaccine for all healthcare workers, but ordinary citizens can still refuse, so… we’re going to make them take that and it’s about time that things get back to normal. […] We’re going to – we’ll just have to decide for these people what’s best.

“Even though this is the first mRNA vaccine and it’s not fully approved by the FDA, we should still make these people take it; we’ll decide for them what’s best.”

Hm… if that doesn’t make you feel warm and toasty, I don’t know what will.

I have to admit, when I first watched this video, a range of emotions overcame me.

– frustration
– anger
– disappointment
– resentment
– hopelessness
– sadness

I’m not going to lie. I’m still extremely disheartened, but amidst all these feelings that I have had to actually meditate on, literally staring off into the distance – contemplating the depths of human inclinations – I actually started to feel empathy and compassion for these individuals, because they have no idea of the deceptive mind-manipulation that they have been under this whole entire time.

There could be an argument that these people think they’re making the right decision by signing this petition under the false assumption that it is a necessary tactic in order to “save the whole world”. Of course, those who have remained informed by doing their own research and acknowledging their own intuitive instinct that something is not right with the COVID/vaccine narrative know quite differently.

The lies and deception that we have been confronted with is enough to drive anyone paying attention mad.

Yet, that’s not the case with a lot of individuals, is it? I can’t assume to know where they’re getting the majority of their information from, but I can guarantee it is not from honest/accurate sources because those are not being offered in the mainstream media or on big tech platforms. And they’re certainly not being offered from the places they should be: the government and health agencies.

Rep. Thomas Massie: CDC Is Lying About The Efficacy Of The Vaccine For People Who Already Had COVID
Anthony Fauci Caught ‘Lying’ – Several Times
Biden Spreads Covid Misinformation During CNN Town Hall
CDC issues lab alert regarding RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV-2

Not to mention the absurd amount of hypocrisy of politicians/health advisors to “mandate” (“suggest”) guidelines and enforce masking/social distancing/lockdowns/vaccines, yet making themselves exempt or just simply not following it – with several of these “officials” being caught out and about, maskless, celebrating birthdays against the social-distancing rules, going on vacations/trips, visiting salons (that are closed to the rest of the public…), attending weddings/funerals, etc., without adhering to any of the guidelines they imposed on the rest of the public.

And while WE suffered from lockdowns and not being able to visit loved ones, even those in the hospitals/nursing homes/etc., and being told to refrain from celebrating Christmas/Thanksgiving with extended family/friends, or heck, even visiting them, guess what these same individuals who supported the lockdowns were doing?

Gov. Newsom Found to Have Lied About Following Health Guidelines at Party
Pelosi Caught Getting Hair Done While Salons Are Forced Closed
Closed Restaurant Owner Decries ‘Hypocrisy’ of LA COVID-19 Orders Following Film Shoots
Denver’s mayor urged residents to avoid Thanksgiving travel. Then he flew cross-country to see family.
Michigan Gov. Whitmer caught in Memorial Day lockdown controversy over husband’s reported boat request
Austin Mayor Hosted a Wedding at a South Congress Hotel Despite COVID-19 Restriction Recommendations
Biden Health Pick Forced Nursing Homes to Accept COVID Patients (while [she] removed own mother from a nursing home and relocated her)
Rep. John Lewis’ Funeral Exposed Democrat Hypocrisy in a Powerful Way

I could go on and on, since there are so many more examples of things like this, but I think we all get the point. (I hope… “Rules for thee, but not for me.” / “Do as I say, not as I do.”) – If you haven’t understood yet, the very same people imposing these “guidelines” and lockdown/vaccine measures enforce it for YOU, not for THEM. They KNOW that the COVID situation is not what they’re presenting to us on the media (and everywhere else we turn), and they KNOW that if authority figures impose/suggest something, then people will blindly follow them because they’re the “experts” and/or “officials” and we are TRAINED (indoctrinated) to obey authority.

In other words, THEY ARE ABUSING THEIR AUTHORITY. While they expect everyone else to shut themselves in and lockdown, mask up, social distance, refrain from vacations, not attend funerals, THEY ARE ENJOYING FREEDOMS WITHOUT YOU IN THE WAY.

At this point, while some people may still defend the government, the CDC, the WHO, the NIH, Gates, Fauci, etc., etc., etc…, we have to ask ourselves: ‘how much more dishonesty and unfounded misguided direction must we be exposed to, over and over and over and over again, while at the same time these same people are defying their very own orders while keeping everyone else locked down and following inane mandates, until we finally realize that these institutions are inept at giving educated and well-informed responses, and we start initiating a more honest, intelligent approach instead?’

And how many of us will acknowledge our own role in this deception; those who have been playing right into the hands of these government mandates and echoing their sentiment that it needs to be applied to everyone who is “vaccine hesitant”, “anti-vaxxer”, “COVID-deniers”, “selfish grandma-killers”, etc., etc.? Will these people recognize when they are on the wrong side of history – with many literally helping tyrannical authoritarians impose unnecessary mandates, all for the purpose of keeping people under strict observation and control? Not fighting FOR FREEDOM, but against it?

Will they open their eyes and minds and take a good, long, soul-searching of their own actions and thoughts and finally come to an epiphany within themselves that they were endorsing segregation, division, animosity, hatred, self-righteousness, etc.?

We have to keep in mind, while these people are under the illusion that a deadly virus exists, and this is what may be stoking their dystopian-like hivemind, the truth is anything but that when delving into honest and thorough investigations into the reality of the matter.

FAITH IN HUMANITY RESTORED: On a positive note, there were also several people in the video that called Mark Dice out for this outrageous overreach into infringing on our freedoms and trespassing on our individual rights. These individuals showed fortitude and respect for their fellow man, and should definitely be applauded for holding the line and bravely announcing their resistance into this oppressive regime.

Thankfully, there are more caring, compassionate people working towards this goal than we may realize. But we need the majority of us to wake up, come to our senses, and recognize the reality of what is going on in our world today. It will take self-reflection, swallowing our pride, and a willingness to admit when we’re wrong. And an extremely long, hard look at the “leaders” governing us…

With all of that being said, it was still extremely hard for me to make this post. Having to rewatch the video multiple times to get accurate quotes and reliving the initial horror of watching several people signing the overtly obvious oppressive petition, has taken a toll on my poor heart.

Now, if you don’t mind, I am going to retreat to the healing aspect of Jesus Christ’s teachings to repair it.

34 "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another."
John 13:34
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,
45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you?"
Matthew 5:43-46
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8

DISCLAIMER: This post is not to shame any of the individuals in the above video or those of like mind. More to spread awareness that it is necessary to reflect on our own inner thoughts and the reasons why we think the way that we do. While it may seem that I am labeling these people as “dictators” or “groupthink enablers”, the better contemplation, at least in my opinion, is does that mean that we should love these people any less?

The answer is a resounding NO. We need to love everyone, even the ones who are misled, confused, or have conflicting interests (or who even believe whole-heartedly that what they are doing is right). And it is not unloving to correct or point out misconduct or erroneous behavior. Of course the topic of misconduct and erroneous behavior is up for debate, but my sincerity is that people as a collective whole will come to realize their true nature and no longer participate in corrupt/unethical actions, as well as not succumb to further manipulative tactics employed by immoral institutions.
