Duality, Polarity, and the False Dilemma Fallacy

“A false dilemma (also called false dichotomy, false binary, black-and-white thinking, bifurcation, denying a conjunct, the either–or fallacy, fallacy of exhaustive hypotheses, fallacy of the excluded middle, the fallacy of false choice, or the fallacy of the false alternative) is a type of informal fallacy that involves a situation in which only limited alternatives are considered, when in fact there is at least one additional option. The opposite of this […] Read more »

Dirty Trick #32 – Raise Nothing But Objections

Some comments and arguments are not worth responding to with a counter argument or clarification, because the antagonist’s mind is already made up, and their only desire is to provoke us into a power struggle. They know that if they can provoke us, they not only win, but we begin to doubt ourselves, we lose energy, and we lose a little bit of our future motivation to act. We can […] Read more »

Brainwashed: Bred as Sheep from Cradle to Grave

Manipulation, brainwashing, and mind control is not just making people believe certain things to be true or false, rather they are achieved through installing a very specific mode of thinking that keeps the individual trapped within a labyrinth of self-deception. This includes systematically causing the mind to rely on external authorities for answers, reversing and confusing causality, shifting the burden of proof, begging the question, falling for false dilemmas, and the […] Read more »

The One Dimensional Gun Control Debate

The issue of gun control is not a black and white either/or dilemma (false dilemma logical fallacy), but multifaceted, which means it requires an in depth multilogical approach to discern the myriad of factors involved. Trying to solve it in a one dimensional way is both naive and ignorant, as it ignores the layers of factors that led to the second amendment’s creation—as well as its attempted downfall. ~Nathan From […] Read more »

Argument from Ignorance

I just saw a comment on a YouTube video of mine that amounted to this, “since science has not proved the existence of a soul, it must not exist”. This is a self-deceived argument though, as it is a fallacy in informal logic called the “Argument from Ignorance”. Many people use this argument to further their materialistic, “God doesn’t exist” worldview, as they have an emotional need to rationalize away […] Read more »

Why Is it Important to Avoid Compromise?

Why should we avoid compromise and meeting in the middle as a means of solving our problems? We’ve all heard the adage that “we each have our own subjective truth”, and while this may be true, it does not negate the reality of an objective truth’s existence. There are gradients of truth, just as there are gradients of lies. Subjective truth and objective truth are very different, whereas subjective truth […] Read more »

Deepening Our Generalizations

I wrote this a month ago, but because of our site being down, I hadn’t gotten around to posting it yet. ~Nathan It is the generalization logical fallacy (logical deception) to say such things as “have faith”, “be loving”, “remain hopeful”, “let it go”, and “be mindful” when they aren’t first placed within a logical context and framework that defines their meaning, as they are general concepts that can mean anything the […] Read more »

Beware of False Dilemmas

We are constantly confronted with a coordinated agenda by the media and government with false dilemmas, which is a logical fallacy meant to manipulate us, and in many cases, manipulate us towards an unstated goal. This fallacy is used in situations where “only limited alternatives are considered, when in fact there is at least one additional option. The options may be a position that is between two extremes (such as […] Read more »

Gaslighting

One common psychological theme I have been seeing a LOT in the media and government propaganda and rhetoric, is of gaslighting. Gaslighting “is a form of mental abuse in which a victim is manipulated into doubting his or her own memory, perception and sanity. (Source)” A movie was made in 1940 (and 1944), and is free on YouTube, called “Gaslight”, it captures this manipulative tactic perfectly — the PTB love […] Read more »

Bertrand Russell & Social Engineering 101

Our governments and above have been studying and implementing mass mind control and propaganda for a very long time.  One of their keys to success was their placement of mainstream science as the official religion of the State, with doctors and scientists acting as their priests and clergy.  They then use the “appeal to authority” logical fallacy ad nauseam, where they prove their points, prove their agendas, condition the masses, etc., all […] Read more »

The Difficulties in Conveying a Sound Argument

One of the major hurdles we run into when conveying certain concepts to others is their inability to understand the logical implications and nuances of our message. Their thinking is clouded by their own self-deceptive logic, so much so, that they are unable to reconcile the facts of a situation when they are presented, and immediately go into denial, resistance, name calling, and argumentativeness; which they support with poor logic. […] Read more »

Why do Dark Occultists use Sacred Geometry?

I made the following comment on a video that was demonizing sacred geometry because it was being historically used by dark occultists, and also currently being used by dark occultists in the entertainment industry.  I was quite frustrated by their lack of critical thinking and poor logic, which was good at pointing out that there was indeed a dark message being conveyed, but was accompanied by ridiculous reasoning based on their […] Read more »

Emotional Integration, Logic, & the Truth

Since we’ve done a lot of emotional integration work, using a refined system of asking ourselves questions that we termed “the Unity Process”, we’ve become much more logical and reasonable in our interactions with ourselves, each other, and others. Each time we integrate a shadow, we reverse engineer and correct an illogical belief system and pattern of relating that caused us to be self-deceived, and thus prone to external deceptions […] Read more »

Beware of Reasoning with the Blind

Attempting to prove a concept or idea with reason to a person who is currently unable (and especially unwilling) to perceive it’s validity can be quite emotionally taxing, since they do not have the same “knowing” (knowledge/gnosis) as you, nor the desire to open their perceptions wide enough to know it for themselves. They will remain stuck in the “appeal to ignorance” logical fallacy, since they are lacking the knowledge […] Read more »

The Loud World of Ad Hominem Attacks

Original Article: The Loud World of Ad Hominem Attacks by Jon Rappoport December 8, 2015 The content of an argument vs. the person making the argument (To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.) “One of the main purposes of propaganda is making people feel stupid. How do you do that? Send them obvious lies and contradictions from cathedrals of power. Watch them shake their heads and retreat […] Read more »
