How young people succumb to the stealthy appeal of totalitarian collectivism

Then as now, such movements appeal to the sins of pride, envy, and wrath. These passions are redirected toward idolatry, or perhaps “statolatry,” focused on the collective itself and its leader.

The Wave: a short 1981 film explains Obamism, Occupism, etc.

This film was made in 1981, based on a true story from 1967.

A teacher explained to students what fascism and national socialism was about by immersing them into that experience without identifying it by its name.

The unsuspecting students went along and created a dedicated collectivist organization with slogans like “community,” “pride,” “action,” and “discipline.”

They traded their individuality for the sense of being a part of something bigger than themselves. They began to think, act, and feel like fascists/socialists without realizing it.

Many liked it until the teacher finally showed them a movie clip about Hitler and Hitlerjugend, telling them that this is their future with their true leader.

Then a revelation came.

The themes, the symbolics, the language, and the attitudes were just like those produced by the Obama campaign, Occupy Wall Street movement, Union rallies, and similar collectivist outfits.

It’s only 46 minutes long and is very much worth watching. Never mind the Scandinavian subtitles.

The Third Wave

The Third Wave was a social experiment to demonstrate that even democratic societies are not immune to the appeal of fascism.[1][2] It was undertaken by history teacher Ron Jones with sophomore high school students attending his “Contemporary World” history class[1] as part of a study of Nazi Germany.[3]

Background to the Third Wave experiment

The experiment took place at Cubberley High School in Palo Alto, California, during the first week of April 1967.[1] Jones, finding himself unable to explain to his students how the German population could have claimed ignorance of the extermination of the Jewish people, decided to demonstrate it to them instead.[3] Jones started a movement called “The Third Wave” and told his students that the movement aimed to eliminate democracy.[1] The idea that democracy emphasizes individuality was considered as a drawback of democracy, and Jones emphasized this main point of the movement in its motto: “Strength through discipline, strength through community, strength through action, strength through pride.”[1]

The experiment was not well documented at the time. Of contemporary sources, the experiment is only mentioned in the Cubberley High School student newspaper, The Cubberley Catamount. It is only briefly mentioned in two issues,[4][5] and one more issue of the paper has a longer article about this experiment at its conclusion.[1] Jones himself wrote a detailed account of the experiment some nine years afterwards[3] and more articles about the experiment followed, including some interviews with Jones and the original students.[2]

The Wave (1981 film)

The Wave, is a short made-for-TV movie directed by Alex Grasshoff, based on Ron JonesThe Third Wave experiment. Though more prominently featured as an episode of the ABC Afterschool Special series, this show debuted October 4, 1981, almost two years before being featured in the Afterschool Special series.

It starred Bruce Davison as the teacher Ben Ross, a character based on Jones.

A novelization of the film The Wave, was released in the same year. Ron Jones’ writings and Johnny Dawkins’ screenplay were also basis of the 2008 German film The Wave.

The Wave (novel)

The Wave is a 1981 young adult novel by Todd Strasser under the pen name Morton Rhue (though modern copies are often under Todd Strasser’s real name[1]). It is a novelization of a teleplay by Johnny Dawkins for the movie The Wave, a fictionalized account of the “Third Wave” teaching experiment by Ron Jones that took place in a Ellwood P. Cubberley High School history class in Palo Alto, California. The novel by Strasser won the 1981 Massachusetts Book Award for Children’s/Young Adult literature.

I translated the main Nazi papers from 1942 , entitled “European Economic Community”. A clergyman, who helped me by typesetting the booklet said ” You know, I found myself nodding in agreement until I reminded myself where it came from”
The translation and a commentary are on
under the title ” The EU’s Evil Pedigree”

Humm? I wonder if Globalists–Internationalists–Cultural Marxists are worried sick about any kind of National feelings of unity… ? Pride, action, discipline, community… are bad things? Really? Poppycock. I guess they are OK if the sanctified, right, PC group of people get carte blanc to see such through. Bizarre.

And all of this democracy rubbish. We are a Representative Republic, NOT a democracy. The Founders talked at length at how dangerous, ruinous democracy is. The Cultural Marxists have used “democracy” to achieve Mob Rule, and Tyranny quite well. When the Bolsheviks finally got total power, defeating the brave White Christian Russians, their reign of murderous terror could go unchecked. Here is a real holocaust that few ever mention. Alexander Solzhenitsyn did his best to expose this. Marxism has devoured well over 100 million lives, for all that Hope & Change… but nothing but Strasser drivel and crickets.

I recall Todd Strasser from long ago. He reminded me of my Communist inspired professors that are sharping their axes right now.

All Western “culture” is currently based on this same criminal indoctrination model: the masters and owners today are the “corporazi” groups, which hide and dilute their individual human culpability and responsibility under the uber “corporate” group idol, so that, in effect, their members each gets to maintain the false right to remain irresponsibly wrong, as infantile delinquent criminal negligents, by using this childish excuse:

“I didn’t do it – ONLY The GROUP did it! Whee!”

(Substitute as synonyms “The Procedures,” The System,” or your idolatry of choice).

No problem was ever solved by ignoring it, yet the criminally negligent greed-creed motto of those in charge always seems to be the exact opposite, that: “There’s No Money In Solutions! Whee!” After all, there’s an infinite number of symptoms to exploit when you’re determined to remain a wilfully, self-blindedly WRONG, criminal negligent, but only one cheap right answer!

The REAL reason the islamic threat is being ignored in public, is this not-so-nascent “Globalization” movement, which is clearly treason to ALL sovereign national people’s governments.

It’s a plutocratic kleptocracy to be run by all those corporazis who never want to pay any taxes to anyone, anywhere, ever; by the global communazi labour guys who want free movement and the same lowest common denominator wages for their 3rd-world slaves, and of course by the moslems who want their one-world islamic ummah, to be run by their theocratic caliphate government.

Since no jobs here = no taxes here = no governments here = no countries here, Globalization is obviously only treason to all sovereign national peoples and their governments.

It’s a triple-threat. Against all these evil forces, we have only the Truth … while only they currently control both the fear and the greed.

As long as ONLY the enemy controls both the behavioural conditioning binaries of the stick (fear of personally having one’s own family firebombed or beheaded by the Jihad) and the carrot (greed for oil-money bribes), those sales-puppets we laughingly call “our leaders” and their complicit media presstitute pets will insist on maintaining their preposterously backwards, victim-blaming “narrative” that only we are to blame for the Qur’an’s 1,400 years of hate, so that we should all “Submit and learn how to be better victims!”

All criminals always insist their victims have no right to defend themselves.

ALL “corporations” are simply conspirational exercises in criminal irresponsibility, seeking to dilute human culpabililty in order to protect their rights to remain irresponsible (hence “limited liability” = limited responsibility corporations). They pretend to dilute each individuals’ guilt in a larger group (might makes rights) and through idolatry (the usual “I didn’t do it – ONLY ‘The GROUP’ did it! Whee!”). I mean, getting incorporated is a conspiracy like:

CORPORAZI: “Your honor, I’d like to take some risks which will only affect other people, for gains which will accure only to myself!”

JUDGE: “DENIED; that’s planned criminal negligence! Off to jail with you!”

CORPORAZI: “Er, I meant ‘we’ would like to have such ‘legal’ protections, in advance – capisce?”!

JUDGE: “Oh, that’s different! OK then, sign up here! Whee!”


In general, modern salesmen advertise fear to sell us the ‘greedy’ hopes of relief from their own initial threats; in this way, as in islam, we are ruled by terrorists.

They both conspire to increase price by limiting output, and/or artificially increase demand by inducing fear of a lack of product.

They are fear-mongers (terrorist/extortionists;) frauds – to be numbered among the takers, not the makers.

Re: Idolatry

Humans have problems because when they imagine a generalization or grouping is something new, with new properties its individual component parts don’t possess on their own, they err.

Many of our false idols (idealized ideas) are irrationally abstracted away from their situational, circumstantial context, often pretending mere effects are their own causes, or ignoring rational cause and effect altogether.

For instance: “Freedom!” Er – “freedom” FROM – what?! “Feedom!” TO – what?!

Libertine “liberal” criminals love the “Freedom!” idol, because, to them, it means the freedom to commit their crimes without being held responsible for them; most idolatry is caused or enhanced by the false notions of pre-determinism and victimology: they claim they are helpless “victims of society, mere products of their environments, and slaves of allah!” Same with all synonyms, like “Liberty!”

Same with when they use metaphors, because, unlike analogies, which are phrased as “this is LIKE this,” metaphors are inherently lies, because they are phrased “this IS that!”

lwesson (above) is clearly an unknowing idolater, when he says:
“Pride, action, discipline, community… are bad things? Really? Poppycock. ”

NO, my friend – NOT “poppycock!”

“Pride” – pride in what? To do – what?
“Action” (an obvious morality-free, context-free idol!)
“Discipline” (again: to do – what?)
“Community!” (da, kamerade – community ist den root auf communism!)

For now, I rest my case.
