How to Worship the State

It is the most destructive, dangerous, bloody and virulent mind disease in history. In the 20th century alone, 200 million people were sacrificed at its altar. And almost everyone on the planet is a member. Join James as he tears up the rules on the cult of statism in this edition of Thought For The Day.

Sowing Patriotism, But Reaping Nationalism? Consequences of Exposure to the American Flag


    • I understand your point, mammique, but your reasoning is an example of a variant of the Genetic Fallacy.

      1. If Merkel does it, it’s bad.
      2. Merkel breathes air.
      Thus, breathing air is bad.

      The question is not whether or not the oligarchs want to eliminate nation-states and national symbols (they obviously do), it’s whether or not we should be nationalists or venerate national symbols. I do not, because the globalists don’t want to eliminate the fundamental tendencies of nationalism (irrational allegiance to centralized bureaucratic systems of control) they simply want to take those same tendencies and expand them globally. I want to deconstruct the underlying basis for these systems by getting people to realize that free humanity can interact with each other without subsuming our identities to any oligarchical control structure, national or global.

      • I think that it depends of which step is being implemented in your continental block at the time you resist, being anti-nationalist in a oppressive-nation-state is resisting, but being nationalist in a supra-national block is resisting as well. What I wonder is which way is the more relevant to take control back, making the big jump from the NWO to voluntarism, or smooth landing by deconstructing globalism, going back to nation-state, then independent provinces, etc.?

        Being feminist before CIA and the Rockefellers funded the movement was genuine resistance, then it became collaboration. Being anti-nationalist in nowadays China is resistance, but being anti-nationalist along with Merkel in the European Union is collaboration IMHO, it serves more their agenda than ours.

  1. Fantastic video James,one of my new favorites of yours and there are several of your presentations that I deeply appreciate.
    Please accept my heartfelt thanks.


  2. Thanks for the comment, Al Saleh. You seem to offer a false dichotomy. The choice as I see it is not one between nation states and the people we oppose, it is between free humanity and the people we oppose. I fight for human freedom; I do not and never would fight, kill or die for “the nation,” “the state,” “a flag” or “the leader.” If they get us fighting in the wrong paradigm then it doesn’t matter who wins; free humanity loses.

  3. Oh, OK. I’ll bite:

    The ostensible supporters of the Constitution, like the ostensible supporters of most other governments, are made up of three classes, viz.: 1. Knaves, a numerous and active class, who see in the government an instrument which they can use for their own aggrandizement or wealth. 2. Dupes — a large class, no doubt — each of whom, because he is allowed one voice out of millions in deciding what he may do with his own person and his own property, and because he is permitted to have the same voice in robbing, enslaving, and murdering others, that others have in robbing, enslaving, and murdering himself, is stupid enough to imagine that he is a “free man,” a “sovereign”; that this is “a free government”; “a government of equal rights,” “the best government on earth,” [1] and such like absurdities. 3. A class who have some appreciation of the evils of government, but either do not see how to get rid of them, or do not choose to so far sacrifice their private interests as to give themselves seriously and earnestly to the work of making a change.

  4. From what James and the commenters have said, I get the sense they’ve individually internalized “the Flag”, whichever flag, as a symbol of oppression or liberty or hope.

    National flags have certainly been dragged through mud and blood by psychopaths in positions of power. However, I would maintain that no matter how much TPTSB trample on any flag while making a pretense of revering “what it stands for”, they and their governments nonetheless do not acquire the right or power to define it for everyone else, for all time.

    Such symbols are powerful in the human mind because they can encode a sense of identity and a set of ideals which each individual has independently assigned over the course of a lifetime.

    When I see the American flag, what comes to my mind is a set of ideals which so far have NEVER been realized. I could, I suppose, see it as a symbol all that’s wicked about the government which waves it around and uses it as a war banner. I choose not to, but that’s just me.
