We are at a time in history when we are being called upon to consciously join together to restore our natural and inherent freedoms. I use ‘restore’ with hesitation, since we have to acknowledge the fact that human beings have scarcely ever fully enjoyed their natural freedoms within their society. The United States after the American Revolution may have been the closest thing to it, although the abolition of slavery almost a century later would have to be considered an essential aspect of a truly free society. And by that time, powerful external interests had already begun their infiltration with an agenda to regain control and slowly erode the freedom of American citizens.
Nonetheless, this article is not meant to be a history lesson, but rather an examination of the reality we are facing here and now. Just as independent states united in the name of individual freedoms always needed to be extremely vigilant about deceptive wolves in sheep’s clothing intent on derailing that freedom, the grassroots movements of today need to be extremely discerning in order to recognize those within the movement that are actually agents provocateur with an agenda to derail the movement in the interests of the powerful overlords they serve.
Discernment of Motive
Vaccine Epidemic: How ... Best Price: $7.50 Buy New $12.99 (as of 06:30 EST - Details) The characteristics of true and authentic participants in any grassroots freedom movement is the desire for unity. These participants respect the differences of others as a prerequisite to fostering that unity within the community. People are free to have and express their views, and true participants tend to be tolerant of signs of ignorance or even egocentricity, as long as it seems that the person has a real desire to arrive at the truth and help to promote freedom.
In a sense, this is what makes it easy to infiltrate grassroots movements. There are no established ‘leaders’ of these movements who decide who can be part of the movement and by what criteria. Certainly, some figures rise to positions of prominence within these movements due to their expertise and effective communication; but if these figures are true participants they maintain a sense of humility within the group, understanding that their opinion is not ‘more important’ than someone else’s, and only has value insofar as it helps lead the community to the truth.
The agent provocateur, on this other hand, has the goal of disunity and fragmentation of the community. Such a person may be a ‘sleeper’ within a community for a given period of time, and tends to be ‘on their best behavior’ at first in order to gain status and trust within the community. When activated, this person will try to divide the group, often by accusing those who are gaining status and respect of actually being the infiltrators and part of a ‘controlled opposition.’ This refers to people that publicly speak out against the powerful oppressors of freedom but ultimately do so in a limited/controlled way so that at crucial moments the full power of the movement is thwarted. The ‘controlled opposition’ may eventually get sussed out by the more conscious participants of the group, but by that time the agent may have succeeded at preventing the movement from spreading widely with their polarizing black and white accusations directed at others. In the past, this type of strategy has often been very successful in undermining a grassroots movement.
Of course, there are many internal disruptors within movements that are not agents of powerful forces, they are simply involved for their own self-aggrandizement. They want to ‘stand out’ in opposition to others who are gaining status, often accusing those others of being untruthful about their motives.
Either way, if we want to effectively support or participate in grassroots movements in the age of rapid social media communication, it is critical that we develop a high level of discernment in distinguishing between those who would foment division for their own ulterior motives, and those who are making tremendous efforts required to foster unity.
Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai vs Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
According to Wikipedia, Dr. Shiva Ayyaduri is an Indian-American scientist, engineer, entrepreneur, and promoter of conspiracy theories and unfounded medical claims. He holds four degrees from MIT, and garnered 3.4% of the vote as an independent candidate in the 2018 United States Senate election in Massachusetts. He is running as a Republican in the 2020 U.S. Senate election in Massachusetts.
In other words, Dr. Shiva is both someone who gets the attention of people interested in discovering the hidden truths in the sociopolitical arena, and someone who is running for a place in the political establishment. I first encountered Dr. Shiva in a video in which he was discussing details of the Climate Change agenda as a money-making hoax. I found him to be intelligent and articulate.
As a doctor, he has advocated for freedom of choice when it comes to our health. He has recently made criticisms about members of the Health Freedom Movement, labeling some of them as “controlled opposition.”
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a long-standing and highly respected vaccine safety advocate, had been enduring these criticisms for months without responding, but when his colleagues began to be attacked by Dr. Shiva, he was motivated to write an article entitled “Critical Questions for Dr. Shiva About His Attempts to Splinter the Health Freedom Movement.” His article opened like this:
For many months I have remained silent in the face of defamatory and dishonest attacks against me by Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai. My approach was to ignore the sniping to preserve the unity of the Health Freedom Movement. However, Shiva has expanded his malevolent campaign to include venomous salvos against our community’s most prominent and effective leaders, including Del Bigtree, Mark Blaxill, Dr. Rashid Buttar, Polly Tommey and Samoan-Australian activist Taylor Winterstein. Because he now has some of our outstanding spokesmen in his gun-sites, and because his poisonous volleys have begun to damage the solidarity that is critical to our success, I reluctantly make this response.
Vaccines: A Reappraisal Best Price: $17.92 Buy New $13.66 (as of 01:00 EST - Details) Dr. Shiva soon created a response to the article in a Youtube video entitled ‘Dr.SHIVA and Young Pharaoh DESTROY RACIST Robbie Kennedy, Jr. Party Over!‘ which currently has almost 50,000 views.
Testing Your Discernment
Comments about this battle on social media show that it is certainly causing confusion and dismay for many. Some are quite polarized in one camp or the other. Others are saying they don’t know who to believe. For most of us I think this dismay is easily solved, when we decide to do our own research, and make our own evaluations about who is truly seeking unity and who is seeking division. For our part, simply reading headlines on social media and following along with narratives that seem to match our own is not the way to truly support grassroots initiatives that we believe in.
Here’s a very valuable exercise for those who would like to consider themselves active participants in the Health Freedom Movement: Read RFK jr.’s article, watch Dr. Shiva’s response, and decide for yourself about who is truly seeking truth and unity and who is actually seeking to divide. By diving deep into the facts of any story like this, you are participating in an exercise in expanding your discernment that helps make it more difficult for infiltrators to break up these grassroots movements, and hence increases the ability of honest and dedicated human beings to come together and make the world a better place.
