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.

The Other Virus: Learned Helplessness

Compliance leading to our downfall.

Reblogged from peckford42.wordpress.com

What is a culture of compliance, and ever-shifting rules, doing to us?

MAY 17, 2021|12:01 AM

PETER VAN BUREN

Why would any American allow the government to deny him a final goodbye to the person who raised him? Why would anyone allow grandma to die untouched in a hospital room without fighting back? In the post-vaccination era, why don’t people remove their masks? Learned helplessness, employed as a control tool.

Learned helplessness is well documented. It takes place when an individual believes he continuously faces a negative, uncontrollable situation and stops trying to improve his circumstances, even when he has the ability to do so. Discovering the loss of control elicits a passive reaction to a harmful situation. Psychologists call this a maladaptive response, characterized by avoidance of challenges and the collapse of problem-solving when obstacles arise. You give up trying to fight back

An example may help: You must keep up with ever-changing mask and other hygiene theater rules, many of which make no sense (mask in the gym, but not the pool; mask when going to the restaurant toilet but not at your table; NYC hotels are closed while Vegas casinos are open; Disney California closed while Disney Florida was open) and comply.

You could push back, but you have been made afraid at a core level (forget about yourself rascal, you’re going to kill grandma if you don’t do what we say) and so you just give in. Once upon a time we were told a vaccine would end it all, yet the restrictions remain largely in place. You’re left believing nothing will fix this. Helpless to resist, you comply, “out of an abundance of caution.”

American psychologists Martin Seligman and Steven Maier created the term “learned helplessness” in 1967. They were studying animal behavior by delivering electric shocks to dogs (it was a simpler time). Dogs who learned they couldn’t escape the shock simply stopped trying, even after the scientists removed a barrier and the dog could have jumped away.

Learned helplessness has three main features: a passive response to trauma, disbelief that trauma can be controlled, and stress.

Example: You are being stalked by a killer disease which often has no outward symptoms. There is nothing you can do but hide inside and buy things from Amazon. The government failed to stop the virus initially, failed to warn you, failed to supply ventilators and PPE gear, and failed to produce a vaccine quickly enough. You may die. You may kill your family members along the way. You have lost your job by government decree and are forced to survive on unemployment and the odd stimulus check—manufactured dependence. It is all very real: WebMD saw a 251 percent increase in searches for anxiety this April.

Americans, with their cult-like devotion to victimhood, are primed for learned helplessness. Your problems are because you’re a POC, or fat, or on some spectrum. You are not responsible, can’t fix something so systemic, and best do what you are told.

The way out is to allow people to make decisions and choices on their own. This therapy is used with victims of learned helplessness such as hostages. During their confinement all the important decisions of their life, and most of the minor ones, were made by their captors. Upon release, many hostages fear things as simple as a meal choice and need to be coaxed out of helplessness one micro-choice at a time.

Example: You cannot choose where to stand, so follow the marks on the floor. Ignore the research saying three feet apart is as useful or useless as six feet apart. Don’t think about why the rules are the same inside a narrow hallway and outsidein the fresh air but don’t apply at all on airplanes.

Kin to learned helplessness are enforcers. Suddenly your waitress transitions from someone serving you into someone ordering you to wear a mask, sit alone, eat outside, etc. Flight attendants morph from delivering drinks to holding the power to have security haul you to jail for unmasking when not actively eating. Companies once run by entrepreneurs are today controlled by the harassment-stalking undead from HR. We’ve become a republic of hall monitors. And there it is. The wrong people are in charge.

One of the better examples of learned helplessness is One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, a great book made into an impressive movie starring a lean Jack Nicholson. Nurse Ratched cows a group of mentally ill men into complete learned helplessness, encouraging them to rat each other out for small offenses, and to follow her every order no matter how absurd. The kicker comes near the end when we learn all of the men (except Nicholson) are free to leave the hospital at any time. They just…can’t.

It is amazing how fast people stepped into the Nurse Ratched role. Within moments of COVID’s arrival in the national conscience, officials like California’s Gavin Newsom, and New York’s Andrew Cuomo and Bill De Blasio raced to assume fat emergency powers. They spent not one moment assessing the impact of their decisions to lock down against the effects of the lock down. They ignored information questioning the value of lock down. 

They turned topsy-turvy the idea that in a free society the burden of proof is on those who would restrict freedom and not on those who resist such restrictions.

They were aided in manufacturing learned helplessness by the most sophisticated propaganda operation ever created. Already engorged with the coin of three years of fake news, the legacy media saw the value of a new crisis in working toward their two real goals: making as much money as possible garnering clicks, and defeating Donald Trump. Previous shows—Russiagate, with a hat tip to 9/11 when Americans demanded fewer freedoms to feel safer—illustrated the way. On a 24/7 basis Americans were injected with the message: You are helpless and Donald “COVID” Trump will kill you; your only hope is to comply fully with the people at CNN who are administering the electric shocks.

Truth is useless to propagandists, actually a threat. 

Look at what turned out to be false (in addition to Russiagate): We never ran out of ventilators or PPE or nurses or ICU beds or morgues. Masks are not needed outdoors. We did in fact develop a vaccine, several for that matter, in less than a year. Almost everyone who died was elderly or had serious comorbidities (a distinct class) but we salivated over “new case numbers” as the primary metric anyway because they went up so much faster. When people questioned the real-world view against the media portrayal, they were told about “asymptomatic COVID” or shunned as hoaxers. Everyone makes mistakes. But just as with Russiagate, all the media mistakes swung one way.

It worked. Condo boards boarded up their gyms. Restaurants forced diners to eat outside in the rain. Entire industries, such as tourism and hospitality, disappeared overnight. New groups were shoved into poverty and unemployment. Children were denied education, criminals released from jails. People were told not to hug their loved ones or celebrate birthdays or attend church. We were told to fear our neighbors as potential carriers.

Every time dissenting information popped up—Florida opening its beaches for Spring Break, for example—the media rushed in to declare everyone was going to die. Texas was declared dead, South Dakota was declared dead, and Americans believed it all even when reports of survivors started drifting out of Disney World.

Americans are not comfortable accepting that their lives being manipulated at this level, the way for example many Russians assume it to be so. We tend to dismiss such things as conspiracy theories and make an Oliver Stone joke. 

But ask yourself how many of the temporary security and surveillance measures enacted after 9/11 are still controlling our lives almost 20 years later. Is the terror threat still so real the FBI needs to monitor our social media in bulk? Was it ever?

Nothing here is to say vaccines don’t work, or are themselves dangerous. That’s another debate. 

This is about the politics of mass control. Add up the “doesn’t really make sense but we do it anyway” COVID rules and try to make sense of them. Why would otherwise smart leaders implement such rules, for example in New York’s case, purposely impoverishing a city or seeking to defund the police in the midst of triple digit rises in crime? Every time your answer is, “it just doesn’t make sense,” consider a scenario beyond coincidence where it would make sense, however out there that might be. It might be the most important thing you can do.

Then look out the window. Remember “15 days to flatten the curve?” With no voting or debate, a system based on a medical procedure capable of controlling our travel, which businesses we can visit, which hotels we can stay in, what jobswe can hold, what education we can access, at which point it is no more “voluntary” than breathing, was put into place. We no longer need to ask what is going to happen. 

Remember the real question is always why.
