Daniel Pinchbeck , author of the recent Substack articles “Are We in a Pseudopandemic?” and “The Antidote to Squid Games: Our culture hooks us on dystopian spectacle to keep us from awakening to our true nature” knows how MSM works: “As someone who used to work in the mainstream media, writing for The New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, Esquire, and so on, and published two books via Random House and Penguin, I gained some direct experience of how ideological hegemony is constructed and maintained. At The New York Times, for example, the editors rigorously police thought, attitude, and sentiment, adjusting language on an extreme micro-scale to reflect institutional bias. As an editor or a journalist for mainstream publications, you learn to shape your work so it fits within the narrow ideological confines of the institution. Eventually, this conformity becomes unconscious, meaning you are now a ‘professional.’” (source)

In this interview we discuss 9/11-COVID and related “political” issues, then move on to philosophy and even (gasp) metaphysics!

Daniel Pinchbeck has authored many books including When Plants Dream: Ayahuasca, Amazonian Shamanism and the Global Psychedelic Renaissance and The Occult Control System: UFOs, aliens, other dimensions, and future timelines.

  1. My “strong hypothesis” is crop circles are communications from aliens.


    What in hell is a strong hypothesis?

    Sorry. Don’t want to take a cheap shot here. The world needs people like Daniel Pinchbeck. It needs very very few of them. I really doubt that Pinchbeck got his entry into elite publishing circles on talent or merit and if you look at the wikipedia page they list one of his distinctions is that his mom used to shag Jack Kerouac.

    If it’s any consolation Mr. Barrett I rewound your podcast to be double sure I heard precisely what this goofball said. If you develop an interest in crop circles I will be paying attention!

  2. Once you get out of the matrix and turn the Box off like O’Brien could do in “1984” then you can see what the invisible hand is up to.

    When was the last time you saw a same race couple on the propaganda machine?

    Nothing is an accident with these criminals, everything is planned long in advance they just make slight adjustments as they go.

    Multiculturalism was used to get other ethnicities in close proximity to each other, to get you “use” to each other.

    Now the cross breeding starts with more and more images of mixed races.

    But is mud a good idea….for the elite who keep themselves pure…yes!

    I developed a minor interest in crop circles a decade or two ago. It is actually a fascinating and often beautiful phenomenon. Most of the good ones aren’t hoaxes. What they are, who knows?

    Whatever they are, probably not messages from aliens.

    Maybe from aliens. But not extra-terrestrials.

    Interesting that people will believe in aliens but not demons nor miracles.
