A self-conscious philosophy of resistance

There have always been two prongs to my writing – as well as analysing and exposing the criminocratic agenda, I try to counter it with a coherent alternative worldview.I have often pointed out that these two prongs belong to one and the same political pitchfork, but I think I got this across particularly clearly in the talk I gave in Edinburgh, Scotland, on May 30 2024 (on video here and here).There I described how the philosophy that I call organic radicalism can be regarded as the ideological counterpart to the understanding and critique of corrupt contemporary society that the system labels “conspiracy theory”.Once somebody has seen through one particular set of official lies they find themselves in a different political dimension.As well as becoming aware of the truth hidden by the specific manipulation they have seen through, they also grasp the broader context of those lies.They start to see how our understanding of reality is restricted and distorted by the system and also for what purposes this is carried out in so many areas of life.The further they look into all this, the more they become horribly aware that everything most people think is true, is fake.They realise that we ...

Evil beyond words

In a previous phase of my existence I used to pen regular film reviews for the local paper at which I worked.I got into the habit of writing these as soon as possible after I had seen the film in question, so that I would still be in touch with the impression that it had made on me and remember the salient details.So it’s somewhat surprising for me to realise that I have taken several weeks to write about the film I am going to describe.What has happened, I think, is that it made a very deep impression on me that I have needed time to fully process.Les Survivantes (‘the female survivors’, literally, or perhaps better rendered as ‘the women who survived’) is a new French documentary from director Pierre Barnérias, known for his 2020 exposé of the Covid scam, Hold-Up.Given the vitriol and censorship aimed at that film, and given the even more controversial subject matter of Les Survivantes, I would have expected only to have been able to view it via some rebellious non-corporate website.So it was a little surreal to find myself sitting down to watch it at a massive multiplex cinema in an out-of-town commercial zone ...

Wars, resets and the global criminocracy

This article was written as a contribution to the 2024 Chisinau Forum: ‘Unrestricted warfare: a holistic approach to the Great Reset’.Over the last few years, I have been doing a bit of research into the connections and parallels between the Great Reset and war.Although my focus has been mostly on the First World War, I have come to the conclusion – shocking for some, perhaps, but utterly unsurprising for others – that the agenda behind all modern wars is the same as that behind the Great Reset, Fourth Industrial Revolution, New World Order or whatever else you choose to call it.This agenda – a long-term and multi-faceted agenda – is that of the entity I have taken to calling the criminocracy, a global mafia which, as I explained in my booklet Enemies of the People, is dominated by the Rothschild financial and industrial empire.The overall aim is the consolidation and expansion of the criminocracy’s power and wealth, the two terms being virtually synonymous in this corrupted era that René Guénon termed the Reign of Quantity.We can break this down into three aspects:Short-term goals – ie: given that the whole thing is ultimately about money, immediate financial advantage.Medium-term goals – ie: ...

Joined dots and spontaneous synchronicity

1. Joined dotsOver the last few years I have presented and compiled vast amounts of information on the activities and nature of the thing I call the criminocracy.Here is a list, with links, of specific subjects that have been covered on the Winter Oak site by me and other contributors:Charles IIIThe CommonwealthThe Church of EnglandThe PopeTony BlairChatham HouseKlaus SchwabThe Great ResetThe WEFWEF Global ShapersThe First World WarUkraine-Russia warFake terrorismFalse-flag terrorismThe climate scamDevelopmentSustainable developmentBRICSBRICS and ChinaChina and BRICSThe OlympicsImpact slaveryRonald CohenSmart citiesSmart stationsEugenicsVaccinesMore on vaccinesBill GatesThe chemicals industryCommunismGlobal governance and the leftFascism and the leftFunding of left activismInfiltrationFake-right oppositionThe Edge FundIntersectionalityRepressionGlobal inquisitionCensorshipManipulationFake anti-semitismSmearsMore smearsGlobal corruptionThe RothschildsMore on the RothschildsLooking back over all this, I think I can say that the dots have been joined.Not every single one of them, of course – there is still plenty of detail to be revealed – but enough dots and joinings for an intelligent reader to be able to identify the shape and scale of the criminocratic beast.Of course there will always be those who, for whatever reason, refuse to acknowledge the existence of what is clearly visible to anyone paying full attention.Commentators, on social media mainly, try to dispute this reality in a number ...

Power and corruption: the public-private imperial mafia

Chatham House, the name commonly given to The Royal Institute of International Affairs, is an extremely influential “think tank” based in London.It has enjoyed the patronage of the British monarchy for a century now, with Charles III recently joining the list of royal backers.Director Bronwen Maddox said on May 9 2024: “Chatham House is delighted to accept the Patronage of The King, a great help in advancing our work on the security, prosperity and sustainability of the world”.Upcoming events include sessions on “US priorities in the Indo-Pacific“, “Recalibrating our assumptions on cybersecurity” and “Solutions for a world in conflict“.Readers of the “insider” US historian Professor Carroll Quigley will know that he identified Chatham House as the most important vehicle for the public-private Anglo-American Establishment that he saw dominating the corridors of power on both sides of the Atlantic.It was formally established in 1920, gaining its Royal charter in 1926, and a sister organisation, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), was set up in the USA.Quigley refers to the movers and shakers behind these organisations as the “Milner Group”, because of the key role of journalist turned civil servant Alfred Milner (pictured), which seems to have begun after a dinner with ...

Volk and freedom!

If there is one thinker who has most shaped my own political evolution over the years, then it is the German-Jewish anarchist Gustav Landauer.I first came across his ideas three decades ago, at a crucial period when I was building up my understanding of the anarchist tradition and sketching out, in my mind, the shape of my own personal anarchist vision.I would say that Landauer has influenced me in three important ways.Firstly, he showed me that spirituality is not, as some claim, incompatible with anarchism but, on the contrary, essential to its authenticity.Secondly, he pointed me to the importance of combining an overall sense of belonging to the human species with an appreciation of particular, rooted, cultures and communities.He confirmed for me that this conception of an organic society cannot honestly be dismissed, as it sadly and absurdly sometimes is, as some kind of “crypto-fascism”.Landauer’s worldview (like mine) in fact represents the exact opposite of the cult of dehumanising authoritarian industrial-militarism which was to grab control of his home country 14 years after his untimely death.Thirdly, the story of his political life, in which he was largely spurned by members of his own movement who were trapped inside the conformist ...

The Olympic agenda is profit and control

A lot of people in France are unhappy about the prospect of this summer’s Olympic (and then Paralympic) Games.Part of this, I suppose, stems from a widespread dislike of anything associated with authoritarian plutocratic president Emmanuel Macron, the diminuitive former Rothschild [1] banker with an ego the size of the Eiffel Tower.But there is also unease about the way the country, its capital in particular, is effectively being rented out, prostituted if you like, to The Global Community.This impression was confirmed by an official poster for Paris 2024, depicting the city as an amusement park constructed for the passing pleasure of the international leisured classes.Ordinary Parisians are being asked to pay the price in a variety of ways.While a lot of talk has been of the removal of the famous book stalls from the banks of the Seine, this is just the tip of the iceberg.Workplace rights are coming under serious attack, with government threats to ban strikes during the Games and even to prevent certain employees, such as shopworkers, from having their usual weekly day off or from going on holiday during that part of the summer. [2]Meanwhile, it is planned to dislodge 2,000 students from their accommodation at ...

MK Ultra Government Program of Research Behavioral Modification

Research to develop a capability in the covert use of bio-logical and chemical materials. This also involves the production of various physiological conditions which could support present or future clandestine operations. Aside from the offensive potential, the development of a comprehensive capability in this field of covert chemical and biological warfare gives us a thorough knowledge of the enemy's theoretical potential, thus enabling us to defend ourselves against a foe who might not be as restrained in the use of these techniques as we are. Part of the rationale for the establishment of this special funding mechanism was its extreme sensitivity. The Inspector General's survey of MKULTRA in 1963and noted the following reasons for this sensitivity. Research in the manipulation of human behavior is considered by many authorities in medicine and related fieldsto be professionally unethical, therefore the reputation of professional participants in the MIKULTRA-program are on occasion in jeopardy. Some MKILTRA activities raise questions of legality implicit in the original charter. A final phase of the testing of MKULTRA products places the rights and interests of U.S. citizens in jeopardy. Public disclosure of some aspects of MKULTRA activity could induce serious adverse reaction in U.S. public opinion, as well ...

Losing the labels

It’s no mean feat to have embedded no fewer than three false assumptions in the title of a single book!And yet this is the case with Far-Right Newspeak and the Future of Liberal Democracy, edited by A. James McAdams and Samuel Piccolo (Routledge, 2024).This is not to say that there is no value in the actual content, as I will go on to explain.But, first, I do have to take issue with that trinity of tiresome terms…The most obvious problem, I think, is the use of “Liberal Democracy” and, in particular, the assumption that this is what we are currently living in, here in “the West”.The editors, two US academics, double down on this assumption in their introduction.They explain: “By ‘democracy’, we mean a variety of fully functioning institutions such as courts, parliaments, constitutions, and constitutional principles that allow citizens to play an active role in public affairs.“By ‘liberal’, we refer to the principles that democratic leaders are obliged to follow in their interactions with citizens.“These principles include the rights to free speech, assembly, religious practice, and privacy as well as the guarantee of full equality.“These values are also based upon universal norms, such as political tolerance and respect for ...

The world out of kilter: reclaim our lives!

I would love to have been born into a stable society – a calm, healthy, wise society – rather than one rattling chaotically downhill at an ever-accelerating rate towards a doom that is increasingly impossible to ignore.For me, real progress would not be the replacement of human beings by machines, but the nurturing of human beings so as to release their full potential, the patient fine-tuning of our outlooks and habits so that we can live better together.The community to which I would like to belong would not look like any other community.It would have evolved in harmony with the specific qualities of its place, its history, the tastes and desires of the people who made it up.It would be through this rooted belonging that the community could achieve its flowering – its myths, its music, its crafts, its food, its drink, its festivals, its ethos.In such a society, people would decide for themselves, among themselves, how they wanted to live.There would be no remote central “authority” demanding data and taxes, imposing its rigid requirements, ensuring that everything and everybody conformed to its mechanical model of what life should look like.People would grow up to feel free and instinctively resistant ...

The world out of kilter: being modern

To be modern is to accept that which you should refuse; to adapt to evil rather than to resist it.To be modern is to have been melted down and poured into somebody else’s mould.To be modern is to have forgotten how to remember.To be modern is to be more detached from nature, more helpless, more dependent, more wasteful, more destructive, more short-sighted than your ancestors could ever have imagined, and yet to feel proud of yourself and your era.To be modern is to prefer artifice to organicity, surface to depth, quantity to quality.To be modern is to have absorbed so many meaningless facts that there is no more room in your head for meaningful knowledge.To be modern is to turn your back on common sense and conform to the collective insanity.To be modern is to be convinced that all change is necessarily good and to refuse to recognise the instinct that tells you otherwise.To be modern is to be at home both everywhere and nowhere; to be somebody and nobody; to be still alive and yet already dead.[Audio version]See also: The world out of kilter: occupation and zombificationComing soon: The world out of kilter: reclaim our lives!Thanks for reading Paul ...

The world out of kilter: occupation and zombification

The kind of society I long for is an organic one, in which people live in the way they see fit, guided by their own inclinations, the customs they have inherited and the circumstances of place.As an anarchist, I am obviously opposed to all authority imposed from above, to any kind of formalised, entrenched power, but that does not mean that there could be no kind of moral “authority” or guidance in the world I want to see.Traditional societies often look to village elders, wise women, and other respected individuals to help steer their decision-making.The advice they give arises from within the community concerned and, in order to be followed, will have to correspond to a generally-shared sense that the proposed direction is the right one.This is not the case with those who exercise power over us today. Due to the corruption of our society, authority is wielded in the interests of a group which neither identifies with the people as a whole nor is prepared to be guided by its wishes.Instead, it seeks to impose its own agenda on the population by any means necessary – by propaganda and persuasion, if possible, or otherwise by outright deceit, intimidation and ...
