Have I Been Able To Redpill People?
A Response To Steve Kirsch
Steve Kirsch recently published an article titled "Have you been able to redpill people?", asking for techniques and advice.
I’m about to make a bold claim here. I don’t anticipate people will believe, although it is worth bearing in mind I published some of the first warning signs of the COVID-19 shots, got people like Steve Kirsch to reply, spoke with YouTuber Louis Rossmann, and wrote a 160 citation COVID-19 shot questions document that made expert virologists flee in terror even when others offered them money.
People might not have known me until now (a good personal security practice: attention is usually bad), but even unknown, people can still have an impact.
My claim is this:
I Was Responsible For The Defeat Of The US Vaccine Mandates
Big claim, I know. I have the receipts. After the 160 citation COVID-19 shot questions document I realised it passed the sniff test - experts running away unable to answer well-referenced challenges - I started using it as a battering ram across the political spectrum. If Louis wasn’t going to use it, I was.
I threw it out to politicians and experts left and right, metaphorically and literally. Within weeks of sending it, there was a tone shift in people. People rock sure of the shots suddenly starting going ‘hang on a minute’.
If you eyeball my Gitlab page where I periodically dump raw information, you might notice this folder, titled “MandateMessages”:
I uploaded, 11 months ago, long before the defeat of the vaccine mandates in Jan 2022 (9 months ago), one of the few public examples of the mandate messages I was firing out behind the scenes, individually.
I uploaded one example for documentation purposes not to give the enemy - the corrupt pharmaceutical companies - an edge by revealing pre-emptively what States, if any, I had contacted. Although they might not have noticed, being under-the-radar, it wasn’t a risk I could take. People’s lives were on the line. But I did need a record for moments like now.
The Gitlab mandates message was actually a later message, which gave States’ advice on contingency plans on preventing vaccine mandates being forced upon them if their federal lawsuit failed. Yes, I was giving political strategy advice.
I had started back in October 1st 2021:
My email - which also referenced Kirsch’s “Spartacus” letter, on my Gitlab for reference - went on to highlight the Federal government’s attempts to implement the vaccine mandate by stealth. I advised litigation against the OSHA mandate:
To give this the best odds of winning…
I Spent 8 Hours Contacting 24 States Individually
In the email to Ron, I had also listed 21 States I was in the process of contacting:
Amongst those you will notice Alabama and Georgia are listed. The mandate message example on Gitlab was for Georgia.
I originally attempted to contact 24 States, but unable to reach 4, either due to broken systems (EG phone or mail-in address only), or requirements (such as valid residency) I could not comply with. I listed 21 because I was in the process of contacting all the States on that day and de-listing the ones I couldn’t contact in real-time. Chicken-egg.
With some help from one other person, forms, email addresses and contact details were collated for 24 States, the most likely to oppose mandates, including the names of governors, which was an uphill slog.
I drafted messages for each one. I’ve often written anonymous policy proposals before, so it wasn’t new. I spent 8 hours, modified drafted messages, filled in forms, adapted references, sent emails, customised appeals and more. I ate junk food and neglected breaks to get this done in a single day it was so important.
States Go To War
In November 4th 2021, one month after I sent the email, Ron DeSantis announced his lawsuit against OSHA and declared war on the Biden mandate:
He had joined together with Alabama and Georgia. It also included private entities. Barely five days later, my efforts paid off, as on November 8th, human events reported there were 27 States enjoined. I was overwhelmed by the positive response.
One was a purple State with a Democrat fearing for office, 2 were the States I couldn’t contact (in my messages I had advised passing them along to other States), and 4 were Democrat States with Republican Attorneys General who opted to join in - something I hadn’t even considered or even known was possible. This gave the much needed majority.
Despite the fact three States joined forces at the same time, Ron DeSantis became the de facto figurehead for the vaccine lawsuit. His organised appearance suited the movement well.
Whilst I have my criticisms of his bills on censorship, he was the most proactive, ballsy politician I had ever seen, and I wish more politicians were this out-and-out aggressive. This was the best response.
Personality Is Important
In contrast I was disturbed and disappointed by the fact Donald Trump was silent. He neither enjoined the lawsuit (private entities could join), nor gave minimum verbal endorsement. Even after success, he did not congratulate or applaud. For something so major, the silence was deafening.
The tyranny of vaccine mandates exposed people’s true colours. People I thought were ‘cookie-cutter’ politicians were showing real zest, and people who had bravado hid in the corner. A prime example were the Canadian truckers’ protest.
No-one expected polite and docile Canadians to come out proverbially swinging. Meanwhile tough and rugged Australians who boast of having dangerous wildlife and harsh conditions projecting this tough ‘Crocodile Dundee’ persona capitulated to some of the worst mandates I had ever seen.
The lesson buried here is how receptive a person is to a new idea is determined not on how they appear, but how they are internally. Adopting new ideas requires you go against the trend of popularity.
How This Relates To Kirsch’s Question
I’m not saying all this to say ‘look how cool Mr Cool is over here’, but as an example of credibility, to show ‘I know what I’m talking about, I did this’. I’m content - nay, I prefer my influence be anonymous, because I want facts, not popularity to determine outcomes. I can be wrong. I’m human.
Returning to Kirsch’s question: "Have you been able to redpill people?"
Kirsch, before you try to reach people, you need to ask two different questions:
Can they be reached, and
Are they worth reaching?
Your time, like my time, like anyone’s, is precious. Not all battles in information warfare are equal. Think about how evil pharmaceutical company lobbyists work. Do they waste time trying to convince the public? Or do they spend millions trying to convince the people with the levers of power? Government. Media. Medical.
Observe The Enemies’ Tactics
You admit to being ignored, stonewalled, avoided, blocked, censored. Notice what the pharmaceutical scumbags are doing? They’re not trying to ‘convince’ or ‘redpill’ you.
They are trying to ostracise and damage control you, placed into a social ‘outgroup’. You’re not worth their time to ‘convince’ because their shoddy practices won’t convince you, so they don’t waste time trying.
Look into Robbers Cave experiment (go beyond the cursory articles - understand why it works). You’ll understand why they put so much effort into the slanderous “antivaxxer” terminology.
Doesn’t Work? Move On.
Notice when I failed with Louis Rossmann - no matter how popular he is - I moved on? He wasted time avoiding facts. I waste my time by being there. Neither of us benefits.
I moved onto the States’ governors. In doing so, shifted the course of American history.
Asking ‘how do I change people’s minds?’ is not the question to ask. Some can never be changed. Some can be changed with great difficulty, but the efforts is not validated by the returns.
The Real Questions To Ask
You should be asking yourself ‘who should I be convincing?’. Where is your time best spent, Kirsch? You appeal to the public, but the public don’t have levers of power. If you want change, think differently.
What’s the most efficient way to achieve your objectives? I don’t vote in American politics. Prior to this point in time, my audience reach was zero, but I dictated an entire country’s course. 27 States. There are superpowers that would kill for that level of influence.
8 hours for free? Do you know how much the CIA spends to influence entire countries? Pharmaceuticals spend millions. I undid part in a single writing session.
Contrast: the EMA leak. I appealed to the public, found they weren’t interested, moved on, appealed to you. I could’ve spent years trying to convince 19,000 people to watch a video, or days asking one person to cover it. Worth it even if it took 8 months. Because you were both reachable and worth reaching.
Directly Answering Your Question
Hard facts emotionally argued.
That’s the formula. Look at the Questions document. Citations are hard facts. Questions emotionally argued. I don’t mean the ‘hard’ facts you accept, but the ‘hard’ facts they will accept.
You might think numbers. Look at shiny statistics. Statistics can be manipulated (‘lies, damned lies, and statistics’). Statistics are difficult for the average person to comprehend - especially if they lack maths knowledge.
Internally they sow doubt, either in your ability (it doesn’t matter how clear you are), or their own ability (how can they verify if they’re not sure what verification even looks like?). Maybe figures are wrong. Maybe your calculation is wrong. Maybe their calculation is wrong. Doubt, doubt, doubt. Purely psychological.
Even then, some people will twist statistics to suit their own end. Quicksand. Hard to argue meaningfully.
Sure you provide steps to repeat (your work is stellar), but - in their view - it might be wrong. How do they know it isn’t conjured? You might point at the government ‘but they’re doing it’. Yeah, but they’re government. They might be wrong too. Human logic is weird.
It is about confidence in the data, not merely the data itself. And not just anyone’s confidence in the data, but their confidence in the data. They have to be confident themselves that it is true. Non-experts cannot be confident in expert data. They lack the tools for self-verification. Thus, different approach required.
Statistics are a smart person’s game. Smart people puff on their pipe, and go ‘puff puff, this data is really good’.
They are not a public person’s game. A janitor who sweeps the streets hasn’t got an education in maths. What the hell is a VST? Why should he care what the mean or the median or the average is? The truth isn’t immediately self-evident. They have street smarts, not numbers smarts. ‘Trust me bro’ doesn’t work in a zero trust situation.
How do you tell they’re smart? Assume they’re not, until they complain it is too simplified. You won’t hear that often, in many fields. Politicians are not experts, they’re politicians. They’re elected, not selected.
Spoonfeed: They Don’t Have Time, You Do
People need information spoonfed because they don’t have time to chew, only swallow.
Most work 9-to-5, exhausted. ‘They ain’t got time for your s**t’. Politicians have less time, flooded with messages. KISS Priniciple: Keep It Simple, Stupid.
How media works: repetition, repeat lie, over and over. Antivaxxer. Antivaxxer. Antivaxxer. Like a chant. Even you parrot and you’re the enemy (replace with vaccine cultist: their behaviours are odd, not yours).
Single numbers, clear quotes, direct citations, immediate references, direct contrasts, immediate source qualification, self-contained. Quote from the horse’s mouth.
1 in 20,000 people get bloodclots from the AstraZeneca shot according to a Norway study. 1 in 2,000,000 children will die from COVID-19 according to the UK government.
Inference is immediate. Understanding is plain. Don’t need maths to know which one is more likely and more dangerous. One number big, one number small. Unga bunga.
Time consuming: Each person has different emotional needs. The arguments for each person need to be tailored. Some feel the need to be right; some, validated; some, consistent values or beliefs. Appeal to groups, not individuals. You don’t have time for 1-to-1 sessions.
Study what a group does (what is said may not align with what is done), what they believe. Appeal on those. I connected with a wide variety: Conservatives, BLM, Islamists, vegans, medical health professionals, more.
Conservatives want freedom. BLM oppose government oppression of the black community. Islamists don’t want ‘haram’ (read: contaminated animal products), vegans don’t want animal products period.
Some medical health professionals want to save lives; others just want to keep their head down and keep their job they spent 18 years of their life trying to acquire. Can’t keep a job if you’re permanently crippled or dead.
Avoid Exclusion. Avoid Inclusion.
Not productive to Robbers cave ‘us versus them’. Not all beliefs align. Some are psychopaths. Some are evil. Some can never be convinced. Don’t try to accommodate all viewpoints. Abandon ship, abandon ship.
Articles report victims dying from the poison shot, victim says to still get it. Grieving family members acknowledge it is the shot, still parrot to get it. A cult.
Jim Jones. People writhed in agony from poisoned koolaid, none spoke out, out of fear (fear of what? Non-conformance; Robbers cave. Asch conformity. Milgram experiment).
Remember, some can never leave a cult. Don’t waste time on cultists. Find levers of power, observe, reach out, adapt, spoonfeed if you must, achieve objectives not reach. Those who want to leave will. Those who don’t, suffer their own consequences. Not even superman can save everybody. Save the ones you can.
Hope this answers your question.
