I came across a channel on YouTube recently called Truth Warrior which is run by David Whiteheadand in this articleI want to feature one of the series that he made called Cults Of Death And Power.
The episodes were posted online between October 26th, 2019 and December 9th, 2019, i.e. way before the world had ever heard of "COVID-19", but in my opinion the topics that are covered in this 4 part series are extremely useful for gaining a better understanding of The Big Picture with regard to this so called "pandemic".
Synopsis from Episode 1 by Truth Warrior:
This is episode one in a series on CULTS both ancient and modern. Many books and docs have focused on the leaders of these fanatical groups, which is indeed necessary and interesting. I would like to touch on that, but focus mainly on the FOLLOWERS themselves. What is it in each individual member of any cult that drives them to blindly give over their minds and better judgement to liars, abusers, psychopaths and lunatics? No followers…no cult…right!?
From the cults of the ancient world, to the many cults that have been exposed in modern times, from various religions to political movements, what is this really all about? This will be an investigation into cults both past and present. I will look at some cults that seem to be rather insignificant, to those of major import and relevance to our present time. Are there common threads? Are there safe-guards against indoctrination? Are there cults or cult-like groups operating in the world that are largely unseen and unknown? Could a person be in a cult and not even be aware of it? Are cults only about making money off of the ignorance and naiveté of the masses who flock to them, or is there more to the story?
Cult leaders and followers have been shown to consist of people of all backgrounds, all levels of education, all levels of intellect, and all levels of economic status. They are also found everywhere in the historical record throughout the world. The only main common denominator is that this is uniquely a human thing….
This series is very information-dense and not for the faint of heart. If you're new to this subject matter, I advise you to keep a pen and notebook ready to jot down words, book titles and other information that you might want to look up later. It will also be useful to write down where you stop watching a particular episode as you will probably not be able to watch everything in one go, but it will definitely be worth your while.
Update 20 June 2020
In addition to this series I'm adding the episode below about Collectivism, as this topic is also very important for a better understanding of the ideology behind the measures and policies that have been and are being implemented worldwide.
The Truth About Collectivism was streamed live on April 2nd, 2019.
