Dr. Yoho, I don't comment regularly but I read you religiously. There is so much wisdom to be unpacked here, and although I don't agree 100% with everything you say, I will still be sharing this post with everyone I know. The Aurelius quotes in particular were a positive jolt to my system. Turning the phone to airplane mode - great reminder. And writing rather than typing notes and thoughts, etc. thank you for confirming how important this is for the brain to process. I am, at age 60, taking an 8 week Anatomy and Physiology course online, (a bucket list item of mine since I was 23 and getting a Master's in dance) and using their flash card system within the chapters is absolutely worthless - I hand write the notecards the old fashioned way and was beating myself up for doing it. I wondered if it is my age or if it's just that I didn't grow up with a computer (nobody had a computer back in the mid 80's - In grad school we had a computer lab in the library and it closed at 10 pm so you still didn't have a ton of time on the computer to type papers on Microsoft Word).This particular post of yours is in the top 5 of everything you've written to date. Thank you.
Thank you very much for all that you do. Since I know next to no one else who are 'awake' to what is happening in our world, I often find myself very lonely and afraid. Your posts help me to cope.
Steve Kirsch has to be repetitive because he isn't preaching to the choir.
Very nice post, thank you. Mallone got the heart attack jab (which he had a life-threatening complication to) at the peak of COVID hysteria which showed a stunning lack of discernment and it shows that he fell for the "mass formation" that I guess he's now writing a book about as an "expert". Sounds very much like Jordan Peterson, who did the same thing.
Re: shielding yourself from lies, it's such an important thing to do. The pernicious idea that there is objective reporting happening on any issue is just not true. Any article written by anyone at any time and under any circumstances has an agenda in mind, whether it is a stated or implied one. To read an article, regardless of content, is to put you in the writer’s mindset and frame of reference. You can choose to consciously reject the contents of the article, but the residue of the ideas being promoted will linger within your mind regardless of any conscious decisions you make. Hence the power of outrageous clickbait articles to advance establishment agendas; their frame has been implanted into your mind.
I touch on some of the themes you covered in this post here if you'd like to take a look: https://neofeudalism.substack.com/p/the-dissemination-of-information-969
What an excellent and timely post!!! I feel so very overwhelmed at times and I need to realize that I need to step away from the noise from time to time before the fight to stay up with all the information becomes my own undoing. Completely agree about Malone.
I have been thinking about this a lot lately. Some mornings, my favorite sources of news/memes/ideas are so toxic nowadays. Just by trying to keep people informed, and despite their best intentions.
I am loath to take sides in some of the skirmishes you describe, Dr Yoho. Nobody's perfect, and "by their fruits ye shall know them." The message is more important than the personality of the messenger which is usually flawed in some way.
Being out there in the sun is helping a lot. :-)
May you day be bright, fellow SH followers.
Excellent advice! As for watching YouTube without ads, I recommend the Brave browser which not only strips them out but also allows you to save videos to watch offline.
Ditto about Malone. Good call.
Amen to all of this! I still read Dr. Malone and Steve Kirsch sometimes, as they have some educational things to say, and they’ve done a lot toward getting people to wake up. But Dr. Malone’s lawsuit against Dr. Breggin (one of my greatest heroes) and Steve’s promotion of the dangerous psychotropic fluvoxamine (Luvox) are outrageous. Great reminder about being really conscious and picky about our various inputs!
I love this so much I'm planning to reread it several times so i can absorb it all. Thank you.
Thank you. There are many things that I could start adding to my daily schedule though I do try to get as much sunlight as I can already ;)
I was overseas for a few years and when I came back to that states I realized how incendiary most of the news was. Ignoring some of this clickbait is crucial for a peaceful mind.
This is a great message and good advice.
I will comment on a couple interesting choices. I've been following Alexander/Malone/Breggins' fight for a while now, and I haven't drawn the same conclusions as you.
First, much of what Alexander writes is clearly him emotionally shooting from the hip. While I respect his candid approach, it's pretty clear he is also largely driven by ego. I also know some people who interacted with him first hand during the Trucker convoy and they said that he had a very big ego.
Secondly, Alexander throws a ton of stuff out there without doing all the due diligence. That's OK because he doesn't pretend to have done the research but he makes notable errors and much of what he writes is personal opinion or emotional response.
Third, the idea about Malone being pushed by Alexander/Breggins is utter nonsense. IMO the evidence points far away from the idea that Malone is controlled opposition, quite the opposite. Malone was an insider and as he woke up to realize his life had been dedicated to working for a corrupted state sponsored machine he (and others like Rogan) were instantly attacked by every single tool at the state's disposal. They don't do that to controlled opposition. For controlled opposition they simply fact check them to make sure the populace thinks they are cranks. For example, I think Stew Peters is controlled opposition. He does not do due diligence and spews some utter nonsense even if some of his ideas are correct. He gets fact checked and they leave him alone because he ruins the credibility of anyone associated with him. Sure he gets view, but it's not credible.
This is the problem I have with Breggins, is he used Stew Peters to attack Desmet/Malone. He used a lot of other resources over what should be is an academic disagreement in psychology.
Now, I think Malone is patronizing, and I think he has a big ego he's desperately trying to hide, and he's still very bitter about being excluded from getting credit for the technologies he helped create.
Is the lawsuit over the top, no doubt. Is it bad for everyone? Yes. If you read the lawsuit, the attacks against him were pretty personally nasty. If Breggins had an academic disagreement, then he should have stuck to that instead of personal allegations for which he has no proof. On the matter of the suit, it sure looks like Malone is correct. Does it justify a lawsuit, I doubt it because no one wins in a lawsuit.
But to paint Breggins' as martyrs is BS IMO. They could end this suit really easily by retracting the personal attacks. They simply won't back down either.
Lastly, the idea propagated by Alexander that Malone and the other inventors are somehow responsible for the misuse of something they invented is ludicrous. It's technology. We should be blaming the evil users of it, not the inventors. Malone himself admits he was duped, and himself suffered the consequences of taking the vaccine.
Malone is naive, patronizing, but he has the ability and credibility to move a lot of people. He is also aligned with Kennedy who I think has a pretty good track record and has the potential to shift a lot of public opinion.
If Kory and McCullough came out and said Malone was bad, then I would listen to them. But they haven't. What we hear from Alexander is heresay except what they said to him. This stuff about Crypto came from Kirsch no doubt, who was probably thrashing around to come up with some way to transact outside of government control.
Anyways, I don't listen to Malone anymore because he's not saying anything new that I can't get from others, but I don't think he controlled opposition or bad or evil.
Thank you for this post.
I have come to the same conclusions as you. I force myself to take occasional breaks from news and Substack as well as review the quality of my subscriptions regularly. In lieu, I will listen to uplifting music and lectures/podcasts on what I CAN DO in my day to day. What is going on around the globe is overwhelming. Being present for ourselves and our families is more important.
Top shelf and restacked.
Thank you for sharing your way of figuring out what to listen/view/allow into your conscious, and why and what you exclude. VERY helpful....
And Dr. Yoho, I am reminded of my motto "Anyday I can go to the bathroomm unassisted is a good day".
Thank you DR. Yoho. You are my daily dose of sanity, wisdom & education. Appreciated.
Your reference to EMF. On android mobiles. ElectroSmart is an eye opener as to how much exposure is around one.
