Dystopian Warnings of How Sports are Used to Control the Masses

The Superbowl is coming, and although the NFL has had a rough season, it is predicted to be the biggest television event of the year. In 2017, almost 112 million people tuned in to the annual event, a full third of the population of America. It’s big business.

In many ways, the dystopian nightmares of 20th century literature have become manifest in the 21st century.

Aldous Huxley foresaw a future where the populace was drugged and sedated, never able to break through the mental fog of forced medication. H.G Wells spoke of the rise of arenas and the distraction of mass sports, suggesting that this type of foolishness was anathema to a free society.

“Our Founders made no peace with this organisation of public sports. They did not spend their lives to secure for all men and women on the earth freedom, health, and leisure, in order that they might waste lives in such folly.” ~H.G. Wells, A Modern Utopia

In Orwell’s 1984, there were two populations living side-by-side, those who’d joined ‘the party,’ and those who remained outside the protective womb of the State… the Proles. The thing with the proles, though, was that they had to be kept pacified, because their sheer numbers were enough to throw off the yoke of state control, but only if they were to unite and organize.

In spite of their numbers, however, the State had no reason to fear them, for they were indeed well pacified, and as Orwell describes, many of the tools used to control these masses have certainly come into fruition today.

From George Orwell’s 1984:

“Heavy physical work, the care of home and children, petty quarrels with neighbors, films, football, beer, and above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds. To keep them in control was not difficult…. All that was required of them was a primitive patriotism which could be appealed to whenever it was necessary to make them accept longer working hours or shorter rations. And when they become discontented, as they sometimes did, their discontentment led nowhere, because being without general ideas, they could only focus it on petty specific grievances.” ~George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four

Author and researcher Alan Watt explains the significance of turning the people’s attention onto sport and away from the events and circumstances which directly and deeply affect their lives. Commenting on Wells’ thoughts from 1905, he notes:

“At that time, sports was something that children , schoolchildren were into. Adults became adults and grew on to adult things. So it was unimaginable at the time that people could actually believe there’s even a need for adult sports and entertainment, never mind having arenas built across the world.” ~Alan Watt

The ritualistic ceremony of professional football culminates each year with the Superbowl, which is presented with a half-time show featuring top pop-stars performing medleys laden with Illuminati symbolism and occult messages. The event captures the inherent tribal tendencies of the males, and safely directs onto a meaningless playing field.

“Because the average man was to become more disengaged from his own destiny as the expert class arose, it was decided that the males would get their outlet, basically, gradually becoming helpless, as males, through sports. Therefore they’d have a tribal team they identified with, they could achieve the model as if they’re winning, and in their own personal lives they’re getting no further, they’re getting disenfranchised, in a sense, as experts took over decision-making for them in all kids of fields.” ~Alan Watt

William Cooper was one of the original American conspiracy theorists, having written Behold a Pale Horse in 1991shining light onto many of the elite plans for national and global domination. He too spoke of how sports is used to pacify the masses, and how it creates extraordinary distortions in the value of male energy.

“It’s the Roman Circus. What does the Emperor do when the people become restive, and when the people are asking questions. When the people don’t like the policies of the Emperor, he sends them to circus! He creates a circus, fills a giant coliseum, and he begins to throw the Christians to the lions. And he has great chariot races. And football games. And basketball games. All to keep the idiots preoccupied with things that don’t mean anything in the scheme of the entire world.” ~Bill Cooper

This year will be no different, and as the world watches a major display of fictitious tribalism, police state surveillance and military worship, a look into history reminds us of just how far we’ve come down the road of mental slavery and mass distraction.

The following video features clips of Watt and Cooper talking about the role of football and male sports culture plays in controlling the masses and capturing our natural drive for conquest and competition so that we have no energy available to revolt against the tyranny of authoritarianism.

Havana Syndrome again? CIA officers are mowed down by a mysterious disease

A CIA officer in Moscow experienced symptoms of the so-called “Havana syndrome” in 2017. This became known to The New York Times with reference to sources in diplomatic circles.

CIA officer Mark Polimepulos, who helped lead covert operations in Russia and Europe, complained about the manifestation of mysterious symptoms. According to the newspaper, in December 2017, he felt severe dizziness, which later developed into a prolonged migraine, forcing him to retire. At that time, Polymerpoulos was 48 years old.

It is noted that such a case was not the only one. Similar symptoms were experienced by the staff of the American ambassadors in Cuba and China in 2016-2018. However, the exact number of cases and the place where this happened is not named. It is alleged that the US diplomats have tried to influence in a similar way around the world.

At the same time, the US State Department was unable to establish an unambiguous reason that caused the “Havana syndrome.” Among other things, it was assumed that the diplomats may have been exposed to an unidentified sound effect.

In 2017, it was reported that, beginning in late 2016, American diplomatic officials and their relatives in Cuba began to complain of symptoms such as hearing loss, nausea, headaches and balance disorder. 

The Associated Press received audio footage of the attack and described the harassing sounds as “the high-pitched sound of crickets combined with fingernails scratching on a board.” Then the American government suggested that Russia or China could be the culprit.

Many victims are still undergoing rehabilitation. Specialists from the University of Pennsylvania performed magnetic resonance imaging and revealed visible changes in the structure of the brain in the diplomatic missions.

Differences were found in 23 men and 17 women who complained of health problems while on diplomatic duties in Havana. Scientists have yet to figure out what causes the unusual symptoms.

How Russia and the United States nearly started a nuclear war in 1995

The Norwegian meteorological rocket incident remains the only time in history that the Russian president has activated his nuclear briefcase.

On January 25, 1995, Doomsday could have come in the world: the Russian Federation was preparing to launch a nuclear strike on the United States. How did it come about that the states that left the confrontation of the Cold War in the past and had just normalized relations with each other found themselves on the verge of mutual destruction?

The beginning of the war?

The cause of the crisis was an ordinary Norwegian meteorological rocket. Its launch from the small island of Anneia at 7 am local time (10 am Moscow time) towards Spitsbergen caused a stir in Russia.

Equipped with scientific equipment to study the aurora borealis, the Black Brant XII was similar in size to the nuclear-powered American Trident D-5 ballistic missile, intended for launch from submarines. In addition, it flew along a trajectory along which, as the Russian Defense Ministry believed, American missiles would fly in the event of a nuclear war. 

In December 1994, Norway informed 28 states, including Russia, about the planned launch, but did not give a specific date, limiting itself to specifying the period: from January 15 to February 10 of the next year. Due to bureaucratic delays, this information did not reach the Russian Missile Warning System, which sounded the alarm.

Decisive minutes

An emergency meeting with the country’s top political and military leadership was convened in the Kremlin. Defense Minister Pavel Grachev, Chief of the General Staff Mikhail Kolesnikov and President of the Russian Federation (as Supreme Commander-in-Chief) Boris Yeltsin had three strategic missile forces control terminals activated – the so-called nuclear suitcases.

The military believed the lone missile could have been fired to create an electromagnetic pulse that knocked out Russian radars and communications systems. Following it, a massive blow could be expected.

For several tense minutes, as leaders watched it flight, it was decided whether Russia would launch a nuclear strike against the United States. 

“Little is known today about what Yeltsin said at the time, given that it could have been some of the most dangerous moments in the entire history of the nuclear era,” The Washington Post journalist, David Hoffman wrote three years after the incident : “They make it clear that the Cold War nuclear readiness system continues to operate, and how catastrophic its consequences could be, despite the fact that the feud between the great powers is already over.”   

The situation was discharged only when it became clear that the rocket had gone towards Spitsbergen (not far from which it fell into the ocean). The nuclear cases have been deactivated. Russian President Boris Yeltsin (center) and Russian Defense Minister Pavel Grachev (right).

The incident with bringing Russia’s Strategic Nuclear Forces to combat readiness, soon became the property of the world community. When, four years later, the Norwegians were about to repeat their launch of Black Brant XII and reported this to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the US additionally warned all key Russian military departments about it through their channels. As a result, this time there were no unpleasant surprises.

Germany conducted exercises in case of nuclear war

Bundeswehr / Birthe Brechters

The Bundeswehr with partners in the North Atlantic Alliance ( NATO) trained in operations in a nuclear war.

The German army, together with Italian, Belgian and Dutch colleagues, conducted exercises in the event of a conflict with the use of nuclear weapons.

The location of the exercise “Steadfest Noon” was chosen airbase “Nörfenich”, where the tactical squadron of the Luftwaffe 31 “Boelcke” is located. Together with the Luftwaffe of the Bundeswehr, the air forces of other NATO countries, in particular, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium, took part in the exercises.

According to a report by Bild, the exercise scenario involved training procedures for safely removing nuclear weapons from storage, delivering ammunition and installing them on aircraft. The training flights took place without nuclear weapons, and in parallel with the aviation exercises at the Büchel airbase, where the tactical squadron of the Luftwaffe 51 Immelman is located, the Resilient Guard air defense systems were trained to protect the airfield from air attacks.

The training sites for the Luftwaffe of the Bundeswehr were not chosen by chance, since the Nörfenich airbase is a reserve storage site for the B61, a hydrogen bomb that forms the basis of nuclear weapons of the US strategic nuclear forces. 

Some of this ammunition is stationed at NATO bases in Europe. The exact number of hydrogen bombs that are stored at European sites and which ones are not reported. In Europe, the B61 is carried by Panavia Tornado fighter-bombers (pictured) and General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon fighters.

Recall that the B61 thermonuclear bomb is the main weapon of the US strategic nuclear forces, although it entered service in 1968. Since 2012, a new guided version of the B61-12 has been under development, which will replace all B61 and B83 bombs that have been in service since 1983. It can be used both on strategic bombers and tactical aircraft. About two billion dollars were spent on the development of the 12th modification of the aerial bomb.
