The Power of a UK Column Hoodie

I'd like to let you know how wearing one of your sweatshirts has hugely improved my life.

I was wearing my UK Column hoodie at an evening class around eight months ago, and as I was walking out to leave, the teacher shouted over, “I like your sweatshirt.”

I've struggled to find anyone “awake” where I live, so I was over the moon that she knew who you were, and I said to her, “We need to talk!” I was impressed that she spotted your logo, as it's quite subtle, and when my zipped hoodie is open, it's harder to see it. But I am so grateful she did.

I didn't expect much to happen, but at another event, she introduced me to one of her close friends—and the three of us get on so well. We meet up for great chats and coffee, which often turns into wine!

They're also part of a local group which stemmed from 'Stand In The Park' to a monthly ‘yellow banner’ gathering in town, which I have now joined. After our last one on Saturday, a group of us ended up in the pub where we got chatting with various locals, including a mum and daughter, an older couple and some young lads, who were all aware of what's going on. Some had never been jabbed, and those who had (due to work pressure) said they'd never have another, which is so wonderful to hear.

From once feeling so isolated, watching programmes like yours helps to keep me sane. I now believe there are far more people who are “awake” out there than I ever thought—and it's a great feeling.

So I wanted to thank you for all you do and to let you know how you led me to meeting so many like-minded local friends, and to be part of a movement which gathers a few new recruits each time we're out there.

Many thanks, and keep up the good work.



Willing to be challenged

I do not see why it is disappointing to see UK Column hosting a piece that is critical of Rudolf Steiner. Just because it is critical does not mean that is a “hit piece”. If anyone feels that this contribution makes invalid criticisms, then they should highlight those areas that they feel are incorrect or distorting, and counter them. If we just refuse to entertain things with which we disagree, then we are no better than the cancel culture with which we feign to disagree. I am fed up with people being “disappointed” with things that counter their own emotional investments.

I do not have any inside knowledge of Steiner organisations but have long wanted to investigate his ideas, as they loosely belong within an area in which I am very interested. I have been put off by the volume of his work and its reputed impenetrability. So I am grateful to John Greenaway for his insight.

My understanding is broadly in line with the statement in Greenaway's piece that Steiner’s ideas arise from a broadly “Rosicrucian” area. I am often frustrated that most people seem not to realise that the current move to totalitarianism did not arise out of thin air. It has been centuries in the making. Rosicrucianism, in turn, arose out of that magico-spiritual (and then ultimately political-scientific) movement that is Neo-Platonic Hermeticism, which was Westernised by Cosimo de Medici’s employee Marsilio Ficino and “Christianised” by the Kabbalah of Giovanni Pico de la Mirandola. It finally emerged in full force in the Western magus in the forms of Giordano Bruno and John Dee. This is a complex history that was only properly uncovered relatively recently in the works of academics such as the incomparable Frances Yates.

Out of this great melting pot arose such varied movements as Theosophy, Steiner’s Anthroposophy, Freemasonry, the occult Golden Dawn and all the varied activities of such great luminaries as Aleister Crowley. It then, through people such as Alice Bailey, became the underlying philosophy of the United Nations and manifest in the global totalitarian ambitions of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Imagine my surprise, then, when I was watching a recent presentation by a member of the “truth movement” (supposedly on constitutional law) who was arguing that the only way to escape our current galloping enslavement was to raise the consciousness of the masses through “hermeticism” and align ourselves with “the universe”. I was aghast since, if the so-called global elite can be said to have a religion at all, then it is surely grounded in the Neoplatonic “hermeticism” that has been attempting to destroy Christianity since the first century AD.

So I really welcome this contribution, because it is the first time I have seen any part of the alternative media seriously cover what I think is the underlying ideology or philosophy of the global totalitarianism that is currently threatening all of us. I am very grateful for this piece and have begun to work my way through some of the links.

First and foremost, thank you for the amazing work you do at UK Column. 

I watched Dr Christian Buckland's interview and your 6 March news episode and must say that the obvious manipulation of the psyche of the population by the restrictions, advertising, approach etc., has been making me think since the beginning of the lockdown. 

I am a trained, solution-focused hypnotherapist and a linguist (amongst other things). As such, I have a smattering of knowledge regarding human behaviour during the stress response, human cognition, neuroscience, hypnosis and language development, etc. All of these things are relevant to the pandemic response and the response of the public.

Very early on in the lockdown, I was asked to speak to a group of Health and Social Care students about stress, and I used the lockdown to illustrate the session. It was clear as day to me that the restrictions were being used to put people into a stress response; it was so obvious that this was deliberate and that the restrictions themselves mimicked primitive brain responses to stress. For example, lockdown/movement restriction = agoraphobia, sanitising = OCD, social distancing = social anxiety, masking = eliciting anger, separation, confusion, inability to rely on one's own cognition.

Around the same time, I applied to launch a petition to the British Government asking that masks should not be mandated, as they would present a very real threat to the language development of children and deprive humans of a very important part of their cognitive input (facial information), which is used to assess their interlocutors' relational status. Also—I hypothesise here, unless someone has actually conducted this research)—this deprived part of children's cognitive input could potentially provide information on which the brain bases neuron mirroring action. My petition application was dismissed, as the topic was deemed misinformation. In short, masking is divide-and-conquer at a cognitive level.

As a hypnotherapist, it has been obvious to me from the start that the Government has undertaken a deliberate programme of mass hypnosis, generally conducted through TV and backed up by mainstream media and other advertising—and that, far from this being over, it is ongoing and insidious.

The public have not been brought out of their deep trance state with the end of lockdown. They were basically left hanging in a deep trance without any of the reassurances, positive messages, etc., that would be used by a hypnotist or hypnotherapist when ending a trance state. Indeed, the enforcement of masking and sanitising restrictions by businesses and healthcare providers prompts the indirect suggestion that these are permanent arrangements now and a part of the new normal, and there is the implication that the Government is in control and we are one step removed from our ability to change anything.

I feel it will take very little for new restrictions or campaigns to be accepted by the entranced masses. Their current head state is very probably subtle background confusion, brain fog or fear, and for many, the hypnotist (government and TV) will be readily accepted as the one who directs them, keeps them safe and tells them what to do.

I myself have been feeling angry recently that we have been subjected to a campaign of psychological damage. Even though, personally, I have retained much of my ability to think critically (I never watch TV!), I am still affected negatively. Whether we like it or not, every single one of us has been affected. We have been subjected to humiliating and degrading treatment.

Does anyone have a right to damage me or any of us psychologically? Is it against our human rights? Do we have legal comeback for the harms deliberately done to us? Even those of us who have resisted and not had jabs have been discriminated against, and to this day are living with destroyed relationships and deep-seated fears regarding, for example, shedding; these restrict our ability to lead normal relationships into the future.

I was excited and impressed to hear Dr Buckland's comments about informed consent; that aspect had not occurred to me. I think the application of behavioural psychology can only go on as long as the 'hypnotist' (government and mainstream media) is playing the game. Possibly, if mainstream media properly come on board and politicians are speaking out, we may have a chance to turn this madness around.

A Lie So Big

We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.
—William Casey, CIA director, February 1981

Yes, all the world a stage,
Turned to a theatre of deceit
When Money directs the plays.
Then, it's lies, lies, endles...the lies!
All agent provocateurs and ‘false flags’ these days.
Inconvenient truths just don't make the grade,
Won't find their way onto newspaper pages—
Bought newspaper pages,
Bought lies.

And all of this was to be expected;
All was required for such lies to fly.
Tell me, are weather-makers cooking the climate,
Queering the weather, poisoning our skies?
Is seasonal flu dressed up as plague?
And, unprecedented,
How is freefall down to base accepted,
No question,
For steel-frame skyscrapers minimally ablaze?

Money has bought the world, and all their media
Have the people blindly doing as told.
Now, evil courts legal, freedom’s called wrong,
And lies lead us all into the devil’s fold.

Pandemic, well, what a surprise!
After the dry run, rehearsals and warnings,
Here is the show, here is the lie:
A lie so big you can steal a world with it.
And you ask: “Won't herd immunity come into play?”
But we heard immunity needs a vaccine.
Except that it doesn't!
The pricked still may sicken,
And, just like the flu—strangely gone missing—
The pricked still may sicken, infect others, and die.
Oh yes,
Like the asymptomatic... but that was a lie!

So, where is this going?
Well, if the plague doesn't get you, the “vaccine” just might!
So, what's in it?
They don't like to say.
But experimental gene tampering, what's not to like?
We hear some are placebos—it's all quite a game!
And so the plot thickens, as Money buys words,
And meanings are changed. But what do we say
When lies infect words?
Words cannot say.
Dictionaries, edited; our language, our truth!
We no longer know what once we all knew.
And all this to fit in with Money's dictates.

But how did we get here, where madness makes rules?
We might start by looking to Cornwall for clues.
G7: just look at the pictures of the happy assemblage,
Unmasked and undistanced, unlike the rest of us
In lockdown these days.
I mean, was our Prime Minister recklessly brave,
Mingling in gatherings amidst such a plague?
Foreigners, too, from countries far-flung;
All of them bare-faced, hob-nobbing...
Such fun!

Money has Healthcare, Education, the Law,
World Government, Military, Land and Seed,
The Media, Church, Outer Space and all.
Indeed, all bar nothing, bar nothing at all—and slowly,
Too slowly, the people see how they've all been sold.

Come on in, the money’s lovely!
This is Monopoly.
Here are the oligarchs; they have stolen the world.
These least of people, these money-grabbers, these usurers,
These thieves:
Such cannot “buy” the world with the trillions they stole.
Do they think they're in Hollywood, reality in freeze?
Money of this ilk never could buy!
Indeed, what is money?
‘They’ control banks, ‘they’ control governments,
And the green stuff’s churned out on a nod and a sigh.
Here is corruption to level all decency;
Here is corruption high as the sky!
I mean, what is a dollar when one has so many
That giving twenty-five dollars to each living soul
Still leaves him rolling in oceans of "Go"?
One family, it’s said, might—at a stroke—give tens
Of thousands to each mortal soul. So, what is money?
A measure of value? A tool for trade? Whatever,
I’ve been round the houses, and this much I know:
They have but all of it; we've little to show.

Money stole the world while bread and circuses
Stopped the people from seeing they’d been sold.
Now, evil sways legal, freedom’s much gone,
And lies lead us all into the devil’s fold.

Here we are, falling,
Falling into a trap.
There will be no way out if we cannot stop.
Just look at the people behind all of this:
Eugenicists! Is that not a clue?
Their main aim being? Being shot of you!
And what of 5G? How does that fly?
Nobody asked for it,
Nobody needed it,
Yet they’re rolling it out, at our expense,
At breakneck speed...worldwide.
Beware 5G! It's a military weapon, a tool
Of control. Control of what? Control of you,
From your insides out, at the flick of a switch,
Through the turn of a dial.

It serves Money; serves them insidiously:
Interacting with us at a cellular level,
“Speaking” to us, changing us,
Planting bad seed, stealing our minds,
Serving the slave-masters, never mankind.
And how would it “speak” but through graphene,
A Trojan horse seeded within the vaccine,
Receiving, transmitting, dancing their tune.
Money, demonic monster of insatiable greed,
Wide as the world. Wider!
This is their big one, their dream of forever.

And what do they seek? What must they have?
Everything! Everything, and this:
Immortality... for them. And us?
Their sheep! That’s those remaining after the cull.
Yes, Money wants all of this, wants it now and for keeps;
Money wants all of us, minus our soul;
Money wants everyone doing as they're told;
Digital ID for a digital globe;
Digital people with digital codes;
Our money, digital... totally controlled.
Operating systems, seeded within us,
Utterly alienating body and soul.
And wouldn’t it be, and wouldn’t it be... just so?
All the better for to serve the few, the very,
Very few, the psychotic, oligarchic... cold.

Money stole the world, inveigled people
To take their poison, bequeathing them total control.
Now, evil looks legal, freedom fades on,
And lies lead us all into the devil’s fold.

Fathomless, this Age of Deceit!
The brainwashed—blind, and raging at doubters,
And all their told world... illusory.
Yet it’s easy to see who’s behind all of this:
Just follow the money, step by step.
Money did this! And how do I know?
Only they have the heft to buy all the world,
To bribe all the world, to make quislings and monsters
Of so many we need to trust. It's them behind this!
Tell me,
Do you think they were pricked? They know what's in it!
Oh no, the invisible worm, it’s not for them;
It’s for us!
That’s us and a few of their “special guests”—
You know, politicians, businessmen, celebrities, and such.
Except, of course, they’re doing a switch!
It’s all a set-up, a grand play to the press:
Special guests are not stuck with the vials used on us.
No, they’re given placebos, them, and the rest:
Those “lucky” few chosen by Money to exist,
To serve them, amuse them, be “rats” for their tests
On some new drugs that... just might do the trick!
The trick? Gifting limitless life—to the rich!
Well, fancy that! What a surprise!
Such “ordinary” desires: impossible wealth,
Total control... and everlasting life!
Yes, the worship of money, there's your slip-road to Faustus,
Irresistible evil, horns and a tail!
It’s all quite the fashion:
Evil rises in places where truth is ousted,
And these days, truth wastelands have mushroomed worldwide.
Yes, Satan is busy!
They’re pushing raw poison for their slippery disease,
But you won't know what’s in it for seventy-five years!
And nobody knows—reality’s “cleaned”—
But everywhere’s the aftermath of their “miracle” vaccines.

Money stole the world. See how the people
Shrink in fear knowing Money is cold.
Now, evil acts legal, freedom’s but gone,
And lies lead us all into the devil’s fold.

Tragic, it is, almost beyond belief
That we’ve brought our great odyssey down to this,
This whiteout of lies at the end of our world, and here
May lose everything: everything given, and everything built.
For some view themselves as more worthy than us.
And my, how brightly their confidence rings out
As they tip their hand for all to see.
Hubris, perhaps,
But I wonder what spiritual etiquette
Has Money tell of their murderous,“sweet” plans.
Perhaps our treasured soul decrees such vampires
Play an open hand, pitching us all
As best they can, yet take the prize,
Our homely soul... but of our free will
And, should their telling draw no snarl-response,
No roaring speeches to clamorous throngs,
Onward, onward, play on!
“You will own nothing and you will be happy,” they tell us.
Will they own nothing? No chance!
They’ll have it all; all we once had,
And all they’ve got.
But most of all, they’ll own us. Us!
Digitised, patented, controlled through and through,
Through a misguided fear of minimal flu,
Through a plague of lies their media played through,
Through a Trojan horse, their untested vaccines,
Loaded with poisons... and connective graphene.
Can’t you see? Can’t you see?
They’re turning us all into half-human machines!

And what does that mean? What does that mean to us?
What does that mean?
It means the God-breath of us, our sacred blood,
Our spirit existence losing its lines,
Prized channels, strangled... asphyxiants, we!
Then all our good wealth, fine complexities, made alien, go,
As soulless we drift under Money’s control.
And all of our days,
All of our days, our veins blighted.
As tomorrows rise, tomorrows yawn!
And we tread our lives,
And we tread our lives, wormblown,* broken, lost;
And forgotten, forgotten the wines we would know!

Money stole the world as all our leaders
Traded their souls, betraying us all for gold.
Now, evil is legal, freedom an old song,
For lies led us all into the devil’s fold.
