Today on everyone’s favorite conspiracy podcast:

Alright Higherside Chatters, we have spent years talking about the problems of the world: War, poverty, geo-engineering, fluoride, petrochemicals, environmental destruction, materialism, greed, false flags, & everything in between in this Rockefeller/Rothschild debt based system of rule and sometimes I get a bit concerned that all we do is pat ourselves on the back for another educational circle jerk while we sit and wait for someone else to overthrow the power pyramid and the yolks of oppression we seem so cozy in.

And an uncomfortable truth we must confront is the relationship between slave and master- the cause and effect of following orders, and the “don’t rock the boat” attitude we take, as long as our cage is a little bit nicer than the next guys.

Yet when one truly examines the world we find ourselves in- you see a multitude of constructs holding us in place that have nothing to do with the natural world:  A never ending framework of legalese that privileges the dark occults in the drivers seat and punishes the people who put their faith in it. – A hypnotic obsession with green paper, thanks to the spellcrafters behind the curtain. – & a system of artificial scarcity aimed at maintaining the illusion that abundance is only a fantasy.

Well, these are the tenants of today’s guest, and true freedom fighter- the ever-passionate Mark Passio. Mark initially rejected his religious upbringing by becoming a Satanist as an early act of rebellion, and eventually was even offered a position as a priest in the Church of Satan by Anton LaVey himself. But after leaving the dark community of group-think—he forged his path as a true individual- studying the vast and complex depths of metaphysics, occultism, spirituality, symbolism, consciousness and more….and for the last 10 years, has been bringing this knowledge to light through his website, videos, presentations, and weekly radio show which can be found at www.WhatOnEarthIsHappening.com

He’s a passionate advocate of natural law, a committed de-occultist deconstructing the spells of slavery, and the truth-telling torcher of sacred cows – long time coming, Mark Passio.

Only in the Plus show:

-How to make better choices in philosophy and worldviews and guard against false paradigms now and in the future.
-The Trivium process of truth discovery.
-Suicide rates among the order-follower professions, and the effects of Karma.
-The psychedelic responsibility.
-The positive applications of anger and contempt.
-The brutal state of shame.

  1. I was in the military and it most deff sucked my soul and crushed my heart. The day I was kicked out for smoking pot I felt such a boost in mood almost like shackles had been taken of my spirit. He is so right about this in the military. In a twist of fate my deployment to afghanistan made it very real to me how false the world we are told is and it jump started my path to truth. I was so lucky I never had to do anything terrible there because I truly believe in the karma of breaking natural law. I have friends that have and they have been mentally tortured since then, some have even been haunted by the ghost or spirit of the ones they killed and some have been pushed nearly to kill themselves from these visions..

    • Me too. I went to afghanistan and everything seemed off. I kept asking myself why the fuck are we here. I didn’t join for any moral obligation, money or adventure. I seen this as one of the defining moments in my generation, and I wanted to see it first hand. It was curiosity. I watched the movie Zeightheist from a hard drive on my lap top while deployed. The 9/11 portion opened my mind. I already knew bin Laden was a plant, and he was never killed in Pakistan. As I started to truth seek, it seemed like for the first year, my stomach always dropped to my knees, the more I learned about the full spectrum control. I already had one enlistment and was one my second when I went to WA. I was depressed, drinking, and not me. I got a DUI and that was the end of my military career. I think inside, I wanted to be gone. I wanted that DUI. That DUI saved my mind I think. I didn’t do anything that conflicted with my morals, but I was part of something that did. I was done with the whole machine. The machine was in place to violate the rights of others. Some people are born with that mindset. Mine was earned through very real education. I learned the hard way, but thank God I learned.

      • I totally feel you with the unconcious drive to be out. I was in afghan when we “killed” Bin Laden. They didnt say anything they just turned on fox news in the chow hall and let those clowns tell us. No one was happy about it there was no celebration just a few jokes and back to the suck. I do remember the feeling after we heard the news, tomorrow is gona blow those true terrorists are gona be pissed! Sure enough we took mortars all day, cheers!

  2. Sorry guys listened to 1h 25m of this shouting maniac! THIS is a “duality with free will system” and so him shouting about us finding truth and morality is such crap. The odds are stacked against us – beings who require bliss peace and freedom to experience our higher selves – where are these things in what he says? And what good in this duality does he think it will do going around telling people how awful and stupid they are – its just too much! And those in power must love him!

    • I understand where you’re coming from. Passio is pretty hard to hang with for the first couple of listenings.

      ” It’s easier to deceive someone, than to convince someone that they
      were deceived. ”

      I mangled that quote, but it sums up why listening to Passio is so difficult.
      Wading through our own swamp of self-deception is painful and discouraging.

      Facing and deconstructing the untruths that build your current reality creates the feelings of bliss, peace, and freedom that you spoke of earlier.

      Natural law is your friend, even if Mark Passio isn’t.

      • Yes i agree. His words resonate with me. They are blunt and to the point, and my own journey and research back him up from my own perspective and manner of speaking, which gets people riled a lot. I think what he forgets when speaking about stuff like this is that the straight and to the point arrow in the dart board of life has a journey before getting to the bullseye- and its a long journey as he said , you have to do your own research. Its kinda a catch 22 in a way, one that i am pretty well acquainted with.
        On a side note i wonder what Marks star sign is?? There has to be Sagittarius in a prominent position xD that’s my guess anyways

      • I really like mark passio work! Ppl can’t get it in their heads mark is t doing this to be your friend and soft soap it’s hard information we need to swallow to become a better person or persons! Watch his de-occulting the military and police on you tube.. I find this stuff truely great knowledge! But being able to do something with it in regards to the whole world then I don’t feel anything can be done now! As in getting these occultist out of power! It’s gone on to long.. but we can make our own lives better and the ppl around if willing to listen..

      • He speaks truths, but really they are not that heavy. It seems rather that he takes them as heavy, and consequently sells them as heavy, which makes them that much harder to buy. There are plenty of other people out there (and no here) touching on the same topics who aren’t so stressed out by it. If one weren’t already “initiated” into these lines of discourse, one might think “well if this guy is a product of his own philosophy, I don’t want to be a grumpy asshole so maybe this isn’t for me…” When he says that doing the work is miserable, that is just a misleading conflation of the subject with his demeanor/outlook. Perhaps he is doing the work, and perhaps he is miserable, but it does not follow that doing the work is miserable. It’s all in how you take it, and while many of us who are already here surely have the ability to tease that apart, I just don’t think being angry and stressed out is all that convincing.

      • Ha Haaaa!!! So true! I have learned so much from his programs, but I had to make myself endure his dark, rageful and often very self-righteous delivery. I respect his offerings very much, but dang dude!! Delivery is Key! He does not understand why his work is not getting the attention it deserves, but people do not enjoy being brow beaten. The Truth is hard enough to integrate as it is!

    • I dont agree with everything he said or the way he said it but as someone whos studied satanic occultism I think he’s on the right path and even if he still sticks to some of it’s teachings

      • You are right in a sense. Every episode of every podcast is not going to be gold for every listener all the time, same with movies or music or anything else.
        But if even one person is able to find inspiration in a body of work and expand their consciousness to some degree, and perhaps even take their first step toward personal sovereignty, then it’s worth the effort. I don’t think I would be presumptuous in assuming that the host agrees with me here.
        By far not my favorite episode, but I do see it’s value on several levels.
        As for other podcasts, I’ve been brushing up on some old Freeman material, as well as episodes of an old public access show called Esoteric Science Round-table particularly the episodes featuring Ikipr, or Aleph9.
        Episode 78 of Occulture Podcast is pretty good too, the Alchemy, Magick and Occult History of Cannabis.

  3. Years ago I listened to ” Passio ” almost religiously. Like sooo many others in his field they simply refuse to mention the almighty, all feard, all powerful…… ‘ J ‘ word. Beginners stuff !

  4. I listened for an hour, hoping he would take a breath & cool down. He reminded me of an Evangelist preacher that my grandmother used to listen to, on the radio .I couldn’t stand the screaming then & I learned today it’s still like fingernails on the blackboard. It wasn’t the content, it was the presentation.

    • Completely agree. I couldn’t get past ten minutes. I do not want to be screamed at by, as you said, someone who sounds like a crazy evangelist preacher. I don’t want to hear how stupid people are every five seconds. Whatever message he had, may be a good one, but I won’t hear it unless there’s a transcript, and even then, half the words will be useless, repetitive filler of self-righteousness. Stop the fucking yelling if you want people to listen! We are not braindead religious stooges in this audience.

  5. By far the biggest rant I have EVER heard on THC.
    That being said, I want to do coke with this guy.
    I don’t agree with him 100%, but probably 85-90.
    These are desperate times indeed, and people do need to have the harsh truths shoved in their faces from time to time to shock them out of their hypnotic stupor. Better someone ranting at you to wake you up than, say, FEMA officials catching you unprepared when SHTF, or something like the Chinese social credit system springing up overnight (cough cough credit score)
    I certainly don’t like being called names, but when he said that most people are weak pussies or whatever, I didn’t feel like he was talking to me. So, if you were offended by that, and felt like he was calling you names, then he probably was.
    I do think 100% that law enforcement and military personnel need to be held accountable for EVERY ACTION carried out in the line of DUTY and SERVICE. They are not all bastards, just a healthy portion. I know some good cops who believe in the Constitution, and I’ve encountered plenty of dick cops who wouldn’t hesitate to follow an order to say, confiscate guns from citizens, or pull over little old ladies to meet their quota for the month. Karma is a thing, and everyone will reap what they sew, for good or ill. My old man fought in Vietnam, and loved every minute of it at the time, but hasn’t had a good night’s sleep since. Told me once that he often wakes up in a cold sweat to the smell of burnt human flesh. Ghosts.
    The BOTTOM LINE is that WE THE PEOPLE are the government, and these people are PUBLIC SERVANTS, not the other way around. Greg calls them Philosophy Flippers in the outro, and nothing could be more accurate. Following orders=selling your soul. Giving orders=black magic. Period.
    It’s not a matter of taking back our power as sovereign humans, it’s a matter of realizing that the power IS OURS to begin with, until we are tricked into handing it over.
    It’s my opinion that the world has a karmic tipping point, and that eventually the nefarious puppet-masters will tug so hard that the strings will break and Pinocchio will finally become a real boy, with a shotgun and a katana if need be.
    If Christ came as a sword unto the world, then ask yourself, WWJD?

  7. Okay so next time I feel like I need to get shouted at by a paranoid drunk homeless guy….I can just cue up this podcast. Only listened to half an hour of this nonsense, it’s all second grade fury and fear. The intellectual equivalent of a little boy jumping up and down because he needs to have a piss. You might as well do an interview with an Amazon Alexa reading out Qanon, it’d be worth about as much as this shitwit. Seriously, google this dude’s band “The Founders” and listen to such nuanced works as “Kill The Masters”. If he was being ironic about his existence and this was all a Borat type performance thing….it might actually be amusing, except he’s not and it isn’t.

    I really think a few decent rubrics for having guests might be useful to avoid such audio-abortions as this in the future, perhaps things like “have they written a book of over 200 pages?” or “have they held a high position of responsibility in either government, academia or military?” or even “do they have over 100,000 subscribers/viewers on youtube?” etc etc

      • A “FORCE”? For what? Blood pressure medication? Is he the change that the world has been waiting for? What is he going to do? Nothing. Ever. I don’t hate him. I find him undesirable for being a raging truthtard. He’s the kind of bitter, angry dude that started turning up on Red Ice Radio regularly when they went down the white genocide hole. I think this is just a case of Greg getting different viewpoints so fair enough.

  9. Passio needs to be careful or he’s gonna disappear up his own backside. There are more contradictions in what he says than I’ve ever heard from anyone on this podcast since Donald Marshall.

    Condescending, patronising and incredibly difficult to not want to physically punch my podcast player. But hey, he’s doing all this incredibly difficult work that he doesn’t want to do for everyone else’s good.

    What a guy.

  10. I’m not so sure his outlook on anger is helping him.

    Besides being condescending, he seems to be totally devoid of humor, which could help balance things out a bit. In my opinion, his material is too heavy on theory and lacking in interesting information and practical examples or stories which could elucidate what he’s trying to say. A bit too one-dimensional. Also, I don’t believe I’ve learned anything new from him in all the times I’ve listened to him – but that’s just me.

    I’ll let this is all pass though, because he’s obviously humbly sacrificing his precious time to enlighten all of the idiots out there…

  11. I can see from the several other comments that I’m not the only one that was turned off by the yelling. I get he is passionate, props for that. However, he says it’s his duty to spread the truth. Wouldn’t he reach a lot more people if he took a xanax or something?

  12. Not going to shoot the messenger just because his delivery is a little coarse. I am in agreement with much of his logic; however, I discovered long ago one cannot argue with willful ignorance (at least not this one). Many of us have families we must feed; which requires many to play with the system. Sadly, freedom of the mind does not free the body of our physical constraints. I appreciate the show THC!

  13. I love Mark Passio and his lucid mind!

    Thanks Greg for sharing him with us.

    He is fired up only because he sees and has spent his life deeply looking into the truth’s of our world, and thank you Mark for holding court with truth.

    I will comment though, that I do take issue with 2 of his more esoteric concepts:

    Firstly, it has been my experience that we “earn” our consciousness through life, our karma, our trials and all and it has not been my experience that you can”wake” anybody up – it’s a deeply mysterious process and cannot be shouted into people.

    Secondly, Mark’s referral to the occult practice of getting others to do your bidding in order to lesson or escape the karma feels off kilter.

    I do not see how the universal creation and all it’s “laws” would allow a seriously harmful or anti human intention and practice to escape karma; in other words, isn’t the wilful application of anti human activity the same as the actual “doing” on a karmic level?

    It would be great to see more deep esoteric chats on THC and we can all look into these underlying energies together!

    Bring on Neil Kramer & Niles Heckman – their new movie “Transmutation” is out now. I reckon THC’ers wold love it.

    • yo, one of the key points about avoiding karmic law that mark forgot to mention altho has explained this dynamic in previous presentations or podcasts is their tactics for creating consent.. they feel that it is not intruding on anothers’ free will if they agree to it in some way and do not say no or stop.. ways they do it is secrets in plain sight, predictive programming, controlled opposition, and other things like military drills before false flags.. does it work for them? i dunno, maybe to a small degree, but they seem to think it does.. Ian Crane explains this quite well.. never heard of Neil Kramer or Nile Heckman… heck man, i gotta looks these guys up- cheers

  14. It’s hard because most of us have heard this stuff over and over. Its not the lack of truth it’s the what the fuck do you want us to do about it.

    I’m a little tired of being ranted at about the same things and then being told it’s “Stockholm Syndrome” because I’ve heard enough. Bullshit. Start speaking solutions or get out of the way of those that have them and are acting towards something but repetition of the same vitriol that got us here.

    Cheers

  15. Passio is a fascinating muddle of man! Even his critics, as I’ve been also, keep coming back to him for good reason. The truth hurts, usually. I agree with the majority of what he says and 100 % believe what he’s saying NEEDS to be said and with his passion and even anger. And yet, as you point out in the extro Greg, is Passio denying any “hierarchy” as inherent in natural law, not exactly clear on that still after many hours of listening to him. And, if he really wants folks to dive into all the decades of research he’s done, why doesn’t he provide some names and titles beyond Jesus, Mohammed and Buddha, and cut his rants shorter so we might have the time and energy to read them?! And, anger, whether justified or not, puts one at the top of a pyramid, a natural hierarchy, it forces others to react in their manner of fight/flight/fawn/freeze. So, merely by conducting the vast majority of his speeches from a place of anger, he sets himself at the top and dares the other to approach. I really hope, for his sake and out of a sincere intent, that most of this is an act for him and he doesn’t try to conduct all his relationships from this place (called TRUTH!!!) and cast any and all who do not bow to TRUTH!@! as not even worthy of his friendship–that’s quite a contradiction to spend your time ranting at strangers about TRUTH while having not an ounce of empathy for ‘lost’ family members and friends and just throw them to the wolves or preach them into anger or depression at dinnertime.

    “Don’t be a victim. Don’t be a nihilist.” OK. And yes, tell it like it is, don’t sugar coat, I’m sick of that shit too. But damn, ‘be the reliable person at the funeral’ what the hell does that even mean? Be stoic? Be reliable? Be sober? I’d rather have some more authenticity at a funeral myself.

    rebellion against the truth that is nature, or a realm of Gods (our) creation, is exactly and the only thing people need to know to stop consenting too

    What to do??
    explain how his is possible , over a long history, to the people that are leading the charge and buying into all helpful technology and cultural leaders..

  18. Do not like his preaching tone of voice, plus his self-righteousness, plus his revering himself because he is trying to help people.

    This is a good example of one who discovered some sort truth and then gets obsessive about that and then let it serve his own narcissism.

    If someone in real life would start talking to me like that, I would send him away and avoid further contact.

    Same social and conversation pattern as, for example, Alex Jones.

    This one’s onna tha wooorst!
    I expect guests to be beyond my info level, like the guest for the Woolpit show brought genuinely unique info I had never heard and cited historical documents. Most conspiracy relivent subject? No not atall but it was extremely interesting and well covered and made for a knockout of a show. This guys just ranting. And it’s like real rants that approach a point and then circle around it 3 extra sentences just to slam back into his point. I finished the episode and was like mentally tired trying to filter the ten mins of his point to from the two hours of breath lol. I love how a few times I hear Greg just go “uh-huh” “…yea”

    No shade Greg love the show to death just gotta bust verbose balls!

    • Ha! No kidding. It was like having one of those homeless doomer preachers wailing on for 2 hours. Some here mention that he does 8 hour sermons…er…classes. I wonder if he also handles a few snakes during those classes? Reminds me of the nearby Jehovah’s Witness church where I finally see people leaving around mid afternoon on Sundays. Apparently some people need a whole lot of this kind of bullshit at one sitting.

      The one thing that I really remember him saying is something about morality being an absolute of the Universe (or something like that). But I don’t recall any evidence to support that claim. Does that morality include all species, like dolphins or whales too? Or, just us humans? Because it’s only about us humans, especially to a fundamentalist.

  22. Didn’t get much new info out of this one. Was mostly preaching to the choir.

    Not a fan of the evangelical holy roller Old Testament prophet of doom preaching style. I’m in my 30’s and have heard plenty of such speeches in and out of churches and I just don’t get wound up by this type of talk anymore. I’m also of the opinion that maybe getting people wound up so tight – even with a message containing some truths – is part of the reason we’re in the mess we’re in. Like Alan Watts would say, “you’re the sort of person who would push the button!” [the nuclear button] That said… I’m sure there’s some kids out there who need to get their shit together and maybe a flood of emotional content in an inspiring hard-ass speech will do that for them if they just happen to be in the right phase of life and state of mind… of course they’ll probably eventually come out of that phase and realize it was all wind and thunder and no rain.

    I prefer to listen to people who aren’t so full… people who are good listeners make more interesting speakers. I don’t get the impression that you could tell Passio anything he didn’t already claim to know.

    Also, his understanding of hierarchical organization seems stunted… Hierarchy is everywhere in nature and all kinds of self-organizing systems. Hierarchy can be a wonderful thing or an oppressive thing. His views on hierarchy and government seem short sighted and one-dimensional. He was very dismissive of Jordan Peterson, but I don’t think he should be… Peterson seems to be much more effective at helping people get their shit together.

    Anyway… it takes all kinds to make a world, so whatever. Preach on, preacha’ man. Maybe you’ll save a soul.

  24. Way too abrasive, I can’t listen to him, so self righteous, angry and hatful of humans. Gets to the point where you don’t want to hear the message cos it’s coming from a seething demonically possessed man who states he doesn’t give a fuck about humanity but needs to deliver a message about natural law. N’ah, I’ve had enough demons in my life already thanks, taken me ages to get their claws out of me, next!.

  26. I think it would be an interesting study to do comprehensive cardiovascular testing with those that that choose order-following professions pre and post first committed act against natural law (like murder). Then do follow-up cardiovascular testing after psychadelic experiences or training like HeartMath. I hope the way I phrased the statement makes sense. Just thinking out loud.

  27. This one took me a few attempts to get through, not because of the content, but because I kept getting all worked up. I think his tone and urgency affected me!

    I agree with a lot of what he had to say and yeah, it’s hard to take. I definitely had some moments of introspection.

    My one issue is that he claims that all government and laws are made- up and not real (paraphrasing here), so we don’t need to follow or adhere to them. But then he goes on a mini tangent about the second amendment and right to carry arms…. so using the law and government to support his point that it’s inherent to own guns. I’m not casting shade on gun ownership, which I support, I do think it weakens his argument though and I wish people could make their points without cherry – picking.

    Excellent work, Greg!

    • My understanding, and I’m no Constitutional expert, is that the Bill of Rights are considered unalienable. Because we are “endowed” with them, the rights are inseparable from us: they are part of our humanity. In a word, the government did not give them and therefore cannot take them away.

      The amendments, including the second, are simply measures that the Government will take to ensure the protection of those unalienable rights.

  28. Wow, another great episode. I literally had the same
    chat with a coworker. To physically enslave people requires too much resources, time, and money. To mentally enslave people to the point where they defend the very construct that enslaves them is true control. If you were a moron you might even think it was the work of a genius. One thing I question is if we go by natural law and use our morality as a compass then what happens to the people who break nature’s law? That for me is where he becomes unclear. Mark should have at least defined what happens to the rule breakers. Final thoughts : I believe government is a great tool but when it’s abused that’s the real problem and if we want to free ourselves we need to first admit that we are slaves.

  29. The Road to enlightenment is filled with potholes, and detours. Realizing your surrounded by shallow people mindlessly following orders is a big first step.

  30. I’m very familiar with Passio’s work, having listened to his podcast series. I’ll always be thankful to him for his educating me on some very raw truths, and his work was a great spring-board to other researchers. Reading the comments, I was expecting the worst from him (he’s gone a bit too far sometimes with the aggression recently, IMHO), but he was pretty level headed and contained in this one (believe it or not). Mark really takes time to flesh out his ideas, and he sure doesn’t sugar coat it. I can see how some of them would come across as overly vitriolic without an established framework/context. Also, keep in mind that he’s from Philly, so listen to his tone/delivery with the understanding that at least 50% of the abrasion is just him being a typical grumpy Philadelphian. I believe Mark has a kind heart, and is doing very unrewarding, dirty, and unglamorous work that many other researchers don’t have the stomach for.

  31. Feels like Alex Jones in the making!

    What’s with his claim that only 10 people out of billions are standing up for the truth? I couldn’t help but think of George Carlin and his segment on the number 10! I also didn’t like the self promotion towards the end of the episode. If he doesn’t like doing this for a living, then he should go on and work in another field. Unfortunately for him, most companies will sense his bullshit egocentric mentality and say no to him before he even walks through the door.

    He even started making Greg uncomfortable with his rhetoric and redundant statements. Just because you repeat something twice, using different syntax, doesn’t mean that you somehow introduce new semantics!

  32. Im halfway through the ep & i want to say i can definitely agree w allot of his talking points BUT as someone who has spent allot of time growing up in punk/diy/anarchist/activist cultures in the us (& I’m friends w mostly anarchist)-there are MANY millions of ppl who r opposed to the system that we are currently in. Many of them r speaking up against it. Many ppl around the country & world r fighting against injustice & r killed in the name of truth! Many indigenous ppl die trying to protect the land & defend natural law. The truth shall set us free & that is why they (the controllers) don’t want it getting out. It is unfair to blame the system on the ppl! We have been manipulated for so long. There are still so many ppl fighting for truth even to this day. Most ppl i know r anti gov & anti police, anti religion,imperialism, colonialism etc! (It pissed me off when he said there were “less than 10” bc i know for a fact that’s not true!) There r indigenous activists & activist groups working to help immigrants & refugees, environmental activists, ppl working to stop slavery & human trafficking. There r active freedom fighters around the world laying down their livea for the truth!!!
    It feels unfair for him to not even mention any of this & totally discredit the human race. I guess if a person only hangs out w mainstream normie yuppie white ppl- then i could see his view, but it is certainly not representative of the entire human race. Maybe Mark just hasnt met the right ppl bc if thats his view of the world it seems very small minded to me.
    Growing up me n most of my friends were never ‘order takers’ ( maybe our speaker has not met many millennials 😉 ) I also think it’s unfair to call virtually everyone on planet earth dumb ignorant or stupid bx many ppl (esp oppressed ppls “non white” & minorities etc) r aware of many of these things bx they r the most targeted & most at risk. Its a majority of comfortable whites who r by far the most ignorant ppl on earth- but even that was bx of centuries of violence, brainwashing, oppression & total domination by the church & state. It has also become nearly impossible to fight the powers that be bc they r so large & all encompassing. They have eyes n ears (literally our phones) everywhere& have dominated the world for ages now at this point. The beast system is bigger & more global by the day. The prison system continues to get bigger every year swallowing more & more ppl into it. Ppl r out there protesting & organizing. There will be more & more protests every year- but at the same time everything is becoming more & more expensive & the mass of people is becoming more & more poor. I hope we reach the limit soon. I pray for freedom & total liberation for us all. We don’t know what the future brings but as they say ‘we out here,’
    So i just wanted to share this to remind ppl that not everyone is fooled. You can fool some of the people some of the time. But you cannot fool all the people all of the time & never will!!!!! There’s allot of ppl in the world now & we r not all fools.
    In the words of the ‘great’ of gwb “wont get fooled again!”
    There are MANY millions of ppl in opposition to this system there always have been & they have always found ways (torture, murder, imprisonment, coercion etc) to systematically silence ppl to supress the truth. But the truth is breaking free once again. I do hope we keep speaking our truth. I hope we r getting prepared for when it crashes soon (i hope it does) & then we can once again be children of the earth but idk when or if or how it will occur. Just keep in mind- there’s a lot of blind ppl in the world too but then there r those of us who see- who have always seen & we remember & we are just waiting for our time to come

  33. Indeed, let’s give some credit to those suffering every day and are willing to tell the truth. They face their oppressors at the expense of their freedom and the safety of their families!

    You hit the nail on the head with this one!

  34. The first twenty minutes are spot on. I 100% agree. It’s strange, I find I have a lot in common with this guy, and I agree with a lot of what he says. Taking into account our very different backgrounds, we find a large patch of commonplace. The one comment I also have is on the portion about judgement. That is heavily misunderstood. But the Bible clears it up the more you read. It’s saying man has the right to judge the action of somebody else. Man does not have the right to judge intent or a person’s heart. Did you kill a person? That’s judging the action. You killed them because it was medically assisted and they asked for it. Can’t judge the heart. Terrible annology I know.

  35. Hierarchy and Anarchy are not in opposition (Passio versus Peterson). As an anarchist I can submit to hierarchy, such as in an organization or team as long as it VOLUNTARY and not compulsory based upon me merely existing on one side or another of some line drawn on a map by a dead aristocrat.

  36. Tonight at eleven; A delusional, angry, self aggandizing ignoramus blowhard attempts to construct sentences using large words whilst encompassing even larger spiritual concepts and inadvertently creates a two hour comedy album.

    That was worth every penny of THC+ for the full fail factor.

  37. Mark talks with the cadence and rhythm of a fundamentalist preacher. I thought I mistakenly tuned into an online church service once he started rolling. And, like a fundamentalist preacher at the pulpit, there are no gray areas in Mark’s world. Everything is black or white. EVERYTHING!

    As Greg introduced the guy I was wondering what I’d hear since Mark started off as a true believer Christian, then a true believer Satanist, and is now a true believer of Mark Passio’s New Religion. While I can appreciate and agree with some of this guy’s rhetoric, he comes off as someone who requires all of this World and Universe to make absolute sense to him. Just as most religious fundamentalists seem to require. Sorry, but all kinds of flags, flares, bells and whistles go off for me when I encounter someone with Mark’s seemingly requirement in life to believe in something fantastic, or find it in everything. Rather than leave the fundamentalism behind as so many do when they leave Christianity, he has doubled down on it and used it through each successive endeavor. Hey Greg, you may have had the next Joseph Smith on your podcast during the early days of his career!

  38. After “winning” the draft lottery in ’73, I enlisted in the Nav and I am embarrassed to say that I was so brainwashed at the time I thought I was working for the good guys, when in fact, there are no good guys. A medical officer pitched reenlistment to myself and four other non-coms saying we were getting out during a recession and would not find work. I told the doctor that I would eat from a dumpster before I reenlisted. To add to my shame the only work I could obtain for nearly seven years was as a civilian 911 operator in Chicago. I witnessed the abuse/torture of prisoners by laughing cops and heard cops boasting about theft and accepting bribes. Because I had two children I stayed there too long, but while there I…(got to be careful in the days of Big Brother), frequently monkey-wrenched activities that I judged to be immoral. Happily, I found another variety of slavery with men who worked hard and displayed higher morals-and some of them had done time!

  39. I agree with most of what this guy says, but like many of the commenters here, I find his ranting style hard to listen to. (I also think he’s a little too hard on the normal people he regards as asleep and/or brainwashed.) I suppose his style works for some people, though, so that’s great.
