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.

Reiner Fuellmich Clarifies Nuremberg Misunderstandings

Trials not underway… yet.

I’d like to address an incredibly important topic that has grown into a life of its own – in my belief, because of the severity of the events going on around us, and the hope that these egregious crimes that are being committed will see justice. The goal for those of us who are awake to these heinous agendas is that the criminals responsible for perpetrating these terrible crimes against humanity will be held accountable for their actions.

Now to say that these criminals deserve to be hanged, the death penalty, etc., I won’t delve into or give my opinion. This post is to try and clarify why the issue of the Nuremberg Code, and in the same vein, talk of a second Nuremberg Trial, has been such a huge talking point lately.

It is a notion I have mentioned on this site, not in order to spread false information, but because of the trajectory that these events seemed to be heading. And/or what many people have spoken about in regards to how essential this matter is, and why there are so many people referencing this topic as if it is already happening.

When we take into account some of the various quotes we’ve heard from multiple doctors/scientists, etc., like Michael Yeadon, Reiner Fuellmich, Vernon Coleman… for example, it may lead those, especially those of us who are eager to see something like this happen, to jump the gun and hear what we really want to hear, instead of what is actually happening.

Source: odysee | @PlanetLockdown | Michael Yeadon | Full Interview | Planet Lockdown

Michael Yeadon @53:35: “So, you will notice, if you ask some friends who have been vaccinated, ask them, were they informed, in writing, that these are experimental medicines that have not yet been approved? If you weren’t, you were administered an experimental agent without your consent.

That is contrary to the Nuremberg code. Code put in place after World War II, recognizing the foul, human experiments performed by Nazi doctors. The Nazi doctors, by the way, were pretty much all hanged. For their crimes, against humanity. And I’m sorry to say, that NHS doctors who are administering these agents to people who are not at risk from the virus, and they’re not telling them that they’re experimental, are also breaching the Nuremberg code and I believe they’re doing it knowingly. And I think there should be a Nuremberg 2. And I think those physicians should be tried on those charges and appropriate sentences handed down. So if you’re one of those physicians, I hope to be around to see you in the court.”

Reiner Fuellmich: “There cannot be any doubt, whatsoever, at least not for me, after having interviewed so many experts from all different fields of science. Um… doctors, virologists, epidemiologists, economists, lawyers, psychologists, psychiatrists – There cannot be any doubt whatsoever that what has been happening here for a year now, is, and I – when I first said this, some people kind of rolled their eyes and said, “Hey, nobody’s going to ever agree with you”, but this is the worst – these are the worst crimes against humanity EVER, ever committed.

@3:49: “ – we have the evidence. I’m – this is, I know there’s some people out there who may not quite work with actual evidence. Well, it’s different with us. Because we have been speaking to all of these scientists and other people. Over a hundred in the meantime. It’s happening globally, but in the end, it may very well turn out that we’re going to have to have a special court because, maybe, there’s a lot pointing in that direction, maybe the national courts will not really be able to deal with this. Because this is such a – this is on such a magnitude, it’s so, it’s so big that it is very possible that we’re gonna eventually need to have something like Nuremberg 2.

Dr. Vernon Coleman @6:07: “Now, let me tell you something else, and this should strike terror into every doctor, nurse or boy scout currently involved in giving, or promoting, these vaccines. The Nuremberg Code on medical experimentation, written in 1947, for reasons which I hope I don’t have to explain, even to David Lammy, stated that explicit voluntary consent from patients is required for human experimentation. That means that patients MUST be told they’re taking part in a trial and they must be warned of all the possible adverse events. That’s what informed consent means.

How many doctors and nurses jabbing people with this stuff are telling patients that it’s a trial? How many are giving people the information they need to make a valued judgement? I would guess, somewhere close to none. So legally, all those people giving vaccinations are war criminals. I’ll repeat that. Legally, all those people giving vaccinations are war criminals. War criminals never think they’re war criminals, of course. In the end of WW2, the Nazi’s mostly claimed that they were doing important work just obeying orders. Doing what they were told. None of that cuts the mustard, as they say, just doing what you’re told, doesn’t stop you being a war criminal.”

Source: lbry.tv | Truth For Freedom | World Doctors Alliance calls for Covid Nuremberg Trials

Dr. Mikael Nordfors @4:04: “My name is Mikael Nordfors. I’m a medical doctor, author, musician and political reformist from Sweden, and I have started an organization called People’s Court, and our aim is to support everyone standing up against tyranny, and a medical tyranny now we’re getting all over the world so that people don’t have to be afraid, we’ll help them to get new work, get some money, support, collect money to support all the people standing up.

And we will arrange a new Nuremberg Trial, hopefully a Nuremberg to litigate against all the criminals behind this hoax.”

With so many doctors/scientists discussing the covid scam, and referencing the Nuremberg Codes/Trials, the topic inevitably grew into a huge amalgamation of an event that is widely spread as currently being underway, or at least, should be.

Many websites, my own included, have mentioned the Nuremberg Trials and the team that Reiner Fuellmich is leading, and to clarify any misunderstandings, Reiner Fuellmich himself has addressed this information, in order to straighten the facts. While yes, he himself has mentioned that eventually a Nuremberg 2 should be the goal, it has not been confirmed to have a tribunal as of yet, and he is not the one leading this specific task at this time. He is, however, working on a Corona Committee, and exposing the factions regarding this narrative and the falsehoods that have been perpetrated on the public.

Jorn Luka @1:00:09: “We see a lot of news articles, well, not on the mainstream media, obviously, but in the more alternative media is they’re all writing about what you’re doing, and they’re all writing also about like, they call it themselves a Nuremberg… trial?

I think it’s good to talk about that for a bit as well because the thing is, the messages that I get from a lot of people is they see you as like, ‘Yeah, Reiner Fuellmich will save us’, and I think – to some extent, your work is super good and I think it awakens a lot of people and hopefully even in a justice system you will accomplish a lot of good stuff. But, as you told me before the interview, like, not like a thing like a Nuremberg trial, for example. And it’s just a bit, um, hope for the alternative media to write it down like that, right?”

Reiner Fuellmich: “Yeah, but there are a lot of false stories out there. Um, for example, the story about me and a thousand other attorneys filing and already having begun our work on a Nuremberg 2.0 trial, that’s false. I mean, I have been telling, this is my opinion, that eventually we may very well end up in a situation in which we will have to have an international corona court. Sort of like Nuremberg 2.0. But we haven’t even come close to that yet.

We’re going to need – first of all, we’re going to need a place where this can happen. Where are you going to have this? It’s probably going to have to be some extraterritorial place. Some kingdom. Some obscure kingdom. We don’t know. We need judges, as well.

Another story is that, Dolores – Professor Dolores Cahill of Dublin University, and Bobby Kennedy and I have filed a class action complaint in Canada. That’s not true. I do cooperate closely with my friend Bobby Kennedy, and I do cooperate with Dolores Cahill, and many others, but we haven’t filed any cases together. Uh, the class action that’s been filed is the one by Michael Swinwood, and he will file another one. The one that we spoke about. The children’s class action. There’s efforts underway of something similar happening in the United States. That’s true. But what’s been reported about my and my colleagues being able to walk over water, that’s not really true. We’re doing our best. We will – “

Jorn Luka: “Except you’re still doing great, great great work, though.”

Reiner Fuellmich:We will win, in the end. Because, there’s no other way. We have to win. And we’re the ones who are going to call the shots.

Those… one of the psychologists, one of the professors of psychology who we interviewed, he said that in order for a democracy to work, you need people with moral competence. Moral competence requires two things. One, the ability to ask questions, rather than to blindly follow orders; and the ability to discuss other opinions, rather than to kill the other person or call them a nazi or right-wing, simply because he has a different opinion. And he says that only 80% of the people have this moral competence. However, you can learn it. If you are taught what this is about.

Uh, but at this point, it’s only 20% of the people who have this moral competence, and that happens to be the group of people who are questioning the corona measures and who are working together, in a very effective way, I think, to stop all of this.

Now if you consider that only .000 something percent of the population is trying to cause very serious harm to the rest of the population, because they’re afraid of us. That is at the core of this. They’re afraid of us. They’re afraid that the, that we’re going to find out about them. If you take that into consideration, then the 20% on our side, is A LOT.

Now you’re going to ask, “What about the other 80%?” They don’t really play a role. Because they’re always going to follow the leader. They’re always going to follow orders. We’re the ones who are questioning things. We’re the ones who are ready and willing to discuss stuff with the other side – not the other side, but with the other 80%. And that’s why we’re the ones who are going to call the shots.”

Dr. Fuellmich has also made a telegram post regarding this issue, stating:

False reports have been circulating for months that the German Corona Investigative Committee or Dr. Reiner Fuellmich would initiate a Nuremberg 2.0 with the help of hundreds of lawyers and doctors.

It is appreciated that Reiner Fuellmich can clarify this topic. While I hope that the original misinformation did not come from a place of misdirection or malicious intent, but rather from a place of misunderstanding and/or optimistic misinterpretation, I cannot dismiss the possibility that this was initiated as a means of discrediting Fuellmich and their intents. Obviously I hope this is not the case, but as always, I recommend doing one’s own research and looking at multiple sources to seek out the truth of the matter. As it is, with Dr. Fuellmich speaking up and clarifying this widespread rumor, it has at least laid this speculation to rest. 

With so much proof and evidence, however, that this covid/vaccine agenda is indeed the largest crime against humanity ever perpetrated, it is no misunderstanding that many people are looking forward to a second Nuremberg Trial, and that those responsible will be brought to justice. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, dig deep into these vaccine agendas, and the ACTUAL GOALS of the government and the “wealthy philanthropists” that made these vaccines possible. As well as how a “surprise outbreak” was guaranteed to happen during Trump’s presidency to begin with. …I’m not sure how one can consider a surprise outbreak 3 years in advance if it is a SURPRISE, instead of planned, but what do I know. 😛

While some may try and defend Anthony Fauci by surmising that he undoubtedly meant that every 2-3 years or so a “surprise outbreak” ends up happening and surely he was just trying to “prepare” us all for the next one, I’d have to counter back by the following testimonies of Robert Willner and Kary Mullis, both of whom called Anthony Fauci out for the HIV/AIDS “pandemic” almost 30 years ago.

History is Repeating Itself: Fauci Was Accused of Genocide Almost 30 Years Ago

Yes, if the “surprise outbreak” was planned, it is because Fauci is engaged in yet another scheme to depopulate, and/or sterilize/experiment on the population and push these dangerous vaccines on to the public. And it goes even deeper and darker than this, ladies and gentleman. Anthony Fauci is just one of the players.

Crimes against humanity, indeed. And most certainly deserving of a worldwide tribunal to expose and arrest the individuals/organizations involved. Will anything come from these trials/tribunals? Well, I have faith, and in the words of Jorn Luka and Reiner Fuellmich:

Jorn Luka: “The truth will prevail, right?”

Reiner Fuellmich: “It always does. In the end, it always does.”

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader.

Which One Are You?: A Follower? Or a Leader? | The Answer May Shock You

No pun intended.

During these uncertain times, especially amidst the corona/vaccine agendas, it has become increasingly clear that there are, sadly, a great percentage of conformed followers than there are questioning leaders.

I’d like to highlight the following social experiments to demonstrate this. Now unless these experiments were staged, because I can’t rule that out, but I am going under the assumption that it has not, and that these are legitimate.

Similar experiments like these have been conducted in the past as well, with varying results. However, just from these modern time experiments, it is worrying the lengths that conformity will go to in order to just be one of the pack, and not be considered an “outlier”. We can see it in abundance today, that humanity hasn’t changed much in their line of thinking. If anything, we have become even more docile, even more compliant, even more unquestioning of even the most inane decisions as long as it comes from a position of “authority”.

The below experiments show the need that people have to follow the group, even if it doesn’t make sense, and/or even if it’s wrong. While the first couple of experiments shown do not involve the welfare of others, the third example most certainly does, and the results are terrifying.

Do you know where you’d stand? Are you being completely honest with yourself? Take a deep, long look at what’s going on in the world; how desperate some people are to fit in, to not be considered a “conspiracy theorist”, or a “right-wing nut” that doesn’t agree with the “majority of the population”… or a dumb imbecile that doesn’t even listen to experts/authority…

Would you be okay going against the grain even though EVERYONE ELSE around you is following a certain narrative?

EXPERIMENT 1. Social Conformity

This first experiment shows a lady who, though there is no reason for doing so, other than everybody else was doing it, conforms to a practice of standing up when a buzzer goes off, then sitting back down after a second or two. There is LITERALLY no reason to do this, but slowly but surely, even those who were not hired actors who initiated this social conditioning from the start, became conformed to following the original test subject.

What would you have done?

It’s easy to say that we wouldn’t participate without being in the same situation as them, but would we, or wouldn’t we? Can we admit when we may just well follow along with the pack for the sake of not being ostracized or be the odd one out? Or would we be strong enough in our own resolution to not follow along with silly mandates, even though everyone else around is?

Experiment 2. Herd Mentality

The below video shows a modern day example of the Asch experiment in progress. The Asch experiment wanted to see how many people would be influenced in giving the wrong answer, simply because everyone else gave the wrong answer. In this line up, 10 people are given the task of choosing which line matches the singular line shown on a separate stand. The first 9 people are all in on the scam to choose the wrong answer, leaving the 10th person, the actual test subject, to decide their answer. Will they trust their instinct and choose the right answer, even if they’re the ONLY ONE to choose it?

Or will they follow along with the crowd?

Herd mentality and peer pressure are very real social dilemmas that affect people in our day to day lives. While some people did not conform to the rest of the group, indicating that there are some willing to follow their intuition and not follow the crowd, even at the risk of ostracization or looking silly, we also can’t overlook the fact that some people may already know about the Asch experiment, and realize that it is a social test; thus skewering the results.

As it is, being different and the only one to choose a different answer, can seem isolating; but if one has confidence in themselves, and doesn’t care what other people think, especially when they’re sure the other people are wrong, can we see real leadership – and perhaps make us second guess our initial reaction/response.

Now, while the first two examples had nothing to do with anything serious, what if the matter literally comes to life and death? What if we are coerced, say… by an authority figure, to carrying out an act that does significant harm to another human being?

Think people will be any less obedient/conforming?

Take a look at the Milgram experiment, which was conducted in the 1960’s to test people’s obedience to authority figures.

Experiment 3. “Listen to the Authorities”

This video is highly disturbing, because it shows the lengths that people will go to simply in the name of listening to an authority figure; even if they’re against it, even if they want nothing more to do with a particular action, if they are commanded by someone in a presumed position of authority, they will continue to commit life-threatening harm on another being.

Source: youtube | Brian Burak | Milgrim Experiment [Milgram]

The gentleman who has the unfortunate task of “punishing” the learner is clearly distraught over the commands to keep inflicting shocks to the other participant. However, at the continued prompting of the experimenter, ends up going all the way to the end of the shock board – even after the learner ceases to respond.

It’s important to note that he is not FORCED to keep pressing the switch. He could refuse – in fact, does so on numerous occasions, yet at the insisting prods of the experimenter, concedes, albeit begrudgingly, and continues to press the switches.

It’s clear that he cares about the other person at the end of the shocks, yet because this authority figure tells him to continue – to inflict terrible pain even to the point of no response – he finishes the task until the experimenter tells him to stop.

The following short interview between the gentleman and the experimenter(s) happens next:

Experimenter: “How do you feel, by the way?”

Subject: “I feel all right, but I don’t like what’s happened to that fellow in there. He’s been hollering – we had to keep giving him shocks – I didn’t like that one bit. I mean, he wanted to get out, and you just kept going, kept throwing 450 volts. I didn’t like that. He wouldn’t even look in on that gentleman.”

Experimenter 2: “But who’s actually pushing the switch?”

Subject: “I was. But he kept insisting. I told him no, but he said it got to keep going. I told him it’s time we stopped when we got up to 195, 210 volts.”

Experimenter 2: “But why didn’t you just stop?”

Subject: “He wouldn’t let me! I wanted to stop.”

Think the test would have been any different if a cute, little puppy was involved? …Well, you’d be wrong.

In an incredibly inhumane experiment, the same experiment was conducted, but this time using a puppy, with real shocks. I obviously DO NOT CONDONE the following test, but wanted to mention it here for further reference to people’s compliance to authority figures:

(And I usually don’t condone cussing on this site, but in some cases it’s warranted and drives the point home rather succinctly)

Charles Sheridan and Richard King took this experiment one step further, but asked subjects to shock a puppy for every incorrect action it made. Unlike Milgram’s experiment, this shock was real. Exactly 20 out of 26 subjects went to the highest voltage.

Almost 80 percent. Think about that when you’re walking around the mall: Eight out of ten of those people you see would torture the shit out of a puppy if a dude in a lab coat asked them to.

Words at the end of the above video from Stanley Milgram that should be immortalized:

“The results, as I observe them in the laboratory, are disturbing. They raised the possibility that human nature cannot be counted on to insulate men from brutality and inhumane treatment at the direction of malevolent authority.

A substantial proportion of people do what they are told to do irrespective of the content of the act and without limitations of conscience. So long as they perceive that the command comes from a legitimate authority.

If in this study, an anonymous experimenter could successfully command adults to subdue a 50 year old man and force on him painful electric shocks against his protests, one can only wonder what government, with its vastly greater authority and prestige, can command of its subjects.

I believe we are all under a social experiment of some kind, by design. The corrupt world leaders are sitting back, watching people follow in line of the most ridiculous and dangerous mandates; laughing at how many actually follow and enforce these rules, while at the same time seeing just how far they can go before people start realizing that it is all a farce.

Then when you consider exactly how much of an influence that social media presents on our life, and the excessive amount of bots programmed to give the users the illusion that a vast amount of the population thinks a certain way, including collusions with the mainstream media – one can see how easily the public could be swayed into a “groupthink” mentality.

So how far can humanity be pushed to following a narrative, a guideline, a rule, if seemingly “everybody” else does it too, and especially when those in a “position of authority” command it?

This is the question that is being asked. And chillingly, a large portion of people would rather follow the herd mentality, than be a brave individual that goes against the status quo. Even if one’s own moral conscience is on the line.

I think it’s high time for all of us, as an individual, to really take a step back and gauge our own actions (and inactions, for that matter). Can we develop our own fortitude, our own strong constitution, to do what’s right – even if “the majority” or “authority figures” demand we do otherwise? What is “right”, for that matter? 

Our moral compass is being tampered with. We need to fine-tune it, and get back on track. Regardless of peer pressure or authoritative control. And we need to be brave enough to stand apart from the herd, and help lead the pack away from this destructive nature.

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.
