Declared intent

Critical Thinking's analysis is based on information which is available for all to find, if we are prepared to look. Various researchers have provided the information which reveals who rules, how and why?

Academic Carroll Quigley was given unprecedented access to the Structural Elite's plans and Anthony Sutton's diligent research revealed those plans in action. A Structural Elite "insider" revealed what is currently self-evident to an audience of doctors 50 years ago.

This summary is taken from these original audio tapes:

If you are aware of the information in these tapes, you are in the minority but we are growing.

Being aware is one thing but what we do about it is something else. As yesterday's Daily Pickings suggested, real change can only begin within ourselves.

Pay attention and think

When there is so much all around us to divert, distract, deflect and debilitate, pay attention to what is happening not what is said. There are no saviours, only ourselves and each other.

Human strength comes from within ourselves, family, community and human relationships not technology. We are imprisoned by our ignorance and deference to authority; thus the key to freedom is to become aware and learn from each other.

Truth withstands scrutiny

When we aren't allowed to question or challenge narratives, we ought to be suspicious because truth can always withstand scrutiny. When people are jailed for their opinions, we really need to be sceptical because history shows that truth is invariably on the side of the persecuted or they wouldn't need to be so. They could just be dismissed or ignored.

Yet another campaigner for truth and justice has been arrested in Germany, one of many countries which outlaws questioning the holocaust. Michele Renouf was arrested earlier this month for questioning the official narrative and having the effrontery to suggest that the real holocaust was committed by the Allies.

The article characterises those questioning the narrative as "far-right" but Ole Dammegard, who has spent thirty years exploring false flag terror attacks could hardly be described as far right.

Making Critical Thinking Illegal: Questioning the Holocaust
Ole Dammegård is an author, international speaker, investigator, former journalist, artist and creator of the website Light On Conspiracies. He returns to Red Ice Radio for a special extended segment to speak about his research and thoughts on an extremely controversial subject, the Jewish holocaust. Ole has spent at least 25 years investigating a multitude of conspiracies, and this area of history involves such an incredibly sinister agenda that it is now illegal in some European countries to question the official story or even attempt to investigate the facts. We discuss the sad fact that in the west, where we have a strong tradition of philosophizing and discussion, this story involves so much horror, misery and bloodshed that most will not even dare entertain the notion of a massive cover-up at play. Ole stresses the importance of really looking at the 6 million number, a figure that has popped up repeatedly beginning in the late 19th century, and has been discounted just as many times. We consider the role of Hollywood in perpetuating the extremely emotional images of horrific crimes the Germans allegedly committed against the Jews, and we take into account the very inconsistent, baffling stories of evil that make absolutely no sense. Ole picks apart some of the gruesome details of the concentration camp gas chambers, where the monumental task of exterminating millions of people was purportedly carried out, and he details clear evidence that shows these accounts do not compute. Then, we take an even closer look at the programming we have been subjected to and the sheer magnitude of the lie, along with the anti-Semitic wall of defense that keeps people from unlearning and awakening to the Holocaust hoax. We also talk about the Soviets’ function in producing the death toll number and gas chamber narrative, players who were involved in the Yalta Conference held two months before the end of WWII, and the policy that was decided upon to be used against Germany. Later, we examine the ways in which the Jewish holocaust and other events like 9/11 and the Charlie Hebdo massacre have resulted in a war against critical thinking. We attempt to unravel Israel’s part in this dark agenda and why America is so wrapped up in the mayhem created by its foreign policy. At the end, we mull over the real reasons Germany had for mounting this horrible conflict and we take into account who has been pulling the strings behind the war machine.

Michele Renouf follows Moniker Schaefer, Sylvia StolzUrsula HaverbeckErnst Zendel and many others who've been persecuted for speaking out against the official narrative. Why would they risk so much? Because, for some, truth is paramount and worth risking life and liberty for.

If the official holocaust narrative is true, why does it need laws to protect it? The truth can withstand scrutiny but it would appear the 6 million Jewish holocaust narrative cannot. It is simply unacceptable to call someone a "denier" or worse without being prepared to examine the evidence for ourselves.

We can be slaughtered as compliant sheep or stand for truth.

Resisting hierarchy

In this recent discussion of the Islamic Movement and Neoliberalism, Critical Thinking's resistance to institutionalised hierarchy, in the context of history and the current political economy, is explained.
