avoiding group think and recent links of interest

We absolutely must avoid group think if we are ever to succeed in bringing about constructive change in our societies.  Group think, which is encouraged by the power elites – who, from behind the scenes, pull our strings as puppet masters – is effectively a highly contagious and collective psychosis.  Group think is for the slothful, those individuals too damn lazy to use their God-given reasoning ability to constructive purposes.

That is my thought for this Thursday, 5 July, 2018.

Below are links to recent, thought provoking and informative essays from other bloggers that merit being more widely read and thought about.

From a woman blogger in Los Angeles, we have this post, Why Being Independent is Immature:

For parents and concerned citizens, here is an important article on the danger of vaccines to babies’ lives and health.

Ever wondered about the interaction between bird species?  This is an interesting read on crows and ravens:

Crows are always the bullies when it comes to fighting with ravens

 

Here is a good thought for the day and for enjoying life.

Thought of The Day

 

Tradition, reason and experience are discussed here as means to ascertaining truth:

Blaise Pascal’s three ways to know truth from bullshit

 

This next post makes the argument that so much of the impassioned divisiveness, identity politics, and fragmentation in society today is due to the breakdown of the traditional family as the basic social unit of human society.

“Andrea”, who it appears may be posting from the Far East in Japan, gives us this no holds barred critique of the power dynamic in play in the US where both Jews and Gentiles alike work to further exclusively Jewish interests in the world.  Do not be put off by the long title.  Some bloggers try to put forth a summary of their post in the title.  This is thought provoking and worth the several minutes to read it.

On this blog, as long time readers know, we have been quite critical of the religious error (really a contemporary heresy) within Christianity today of Christian Zionism (mainly a problem in Protestantism here in the US).  This next essay written from an Orthodox Christian perspective (as in Greek or Russian Orthodox Church) exposes the serious errors of contemporary Christian Zionism.

From the Mystery Worshipper blog, this post tells of the passion for Israel among “Judaized” Christians.  The question posed at the end is essentially: who will these Judaized Christians choose to worship and serve, Jesus or the Jews?

  1. “Group think is for the slothful, those individuals too damn lazy to use their God-given reasoning ability to constructive purposes.”

    My sentiments exactly. This seems to be the common denominator of practically everyone on the Left these days. I simply don’t understand it, one bit. Why would anyone want to embrace a particular way of thinking, just to be accepted by their peers? This seems to be what’s going on.
    What a shallow , fragile sense of character these people must have, when they are take on all the views that are “popular”, simply to be “liked” or “accepted”.

    I’m very much a loner (way too much actually), simply because I hate feeling the tug of peer pressure to be like everyone else.

    1. Thanks, Stephen, for your thoughts. I must say that I pretty much have been a solo act in many ways in my adult life. Often times, doing what is right is not popular. People ought to act on or from principle(s), and not base their decisions or actions on the public mood or over concerns for personal popularity.

  2. Thank you, Larry!

    Totally agree, we are human beings, not a flock. We should think and question life.

    And just to say that the picture of the lake is really beautiful.

    1. Thanks Elitsa for stopping by. We should think and question life as you say. But, there does seem to be a “herd instinct” among humans.

      Yes, Lake Powell, formed once the dam was completed in the mid 1960s, has some interesting scenery with the contrast of the water with the rocks forming the shoreline.

  3. Thank you, Larry, for including a link from my blog and including it in your topic of “group think.”
    With the mass media owned by the elite, it’s hard to not be a group thinker these days. Witness the imprisonment of Canadian pacifist Monika Schaefer in Germany in January 2018. Here is a Canadian-born, law-abiding lady who was kidnapped in Germany while visiting her brother. The Canadian branch of B’nai Brith colluded with authorities in Germany and Monika has been in a high security prison and her show trial is on-going now. But if you listen to the MSM, groupthink says Monika deserves to rot in that jail cell.

  4. Thank you, Larry, for including a post from Mystery Worshipers in your “groupthink” topic. In Canada right now, groupthink prevails. In January 2018 a Christian Canadian-born pacifist lady was kidnapped in Germany with the collusion of B’Nai Brith. Her show trial continues. Of course, this is to be expected with the MSM owned by enemies of free speech.
    Here are a couple of links that are not part of the “groupthink” crowd.

    1. Thank you mystery worshipper for your comments and links. Yes, we are aware of the sad case of Monika Schaefer in jail and on trial in Germany. It seems the only ones covering and sending updates about the ongoing trail are various bloggers. It is a show trial. There is no freedom of speech in Europe or freedom of thought when it comes to the holocaust.
