    Did You Guys Watch the Olympics Opening Ceremony?

    I have the only TV I watch on my computer, and I took a screenshot of this part of the 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony in Pyongyang, North Korea.

    Part of the ceremony made me cry.

    Here's the screenshot:

    Nope, I taped it, but was on to other things at the time. The pic is sorta dark...is it the standard "dove of peace"? Any reasons it upset you?

    I don't know what the standard dove of peace is shaped as, but yes, it's a dove (I guess!).

    The part that made me cry was singers from South Korea singing the Beatles' "Imagine." I'm getting goosebumps right now typing this.

    I can understand how it might have affected you KeepTrying. Just for the song. But to be honest, I was there at the screen shouting things like "NO! NO! OMG you're ruining it!, Stop it! Arghh!".
    The young fellow and the older woman were okay at singing, but to me the old chap and the younger woman were shocking!
    I did like the choreography of the doves being filled with the streams of people carrying lights. thumbsup.

    Anyway, bed time for me it is frightfully late.

    darn I probably shouldn't have said anything. Me and my blunt honesty again :-(

    Any deep state symbolism? This is their next big chance to show something after the old Hyperbowl mega-champion evil empire Patriots lost 33-41 (33 referencing the highest Masonic level over come by the nearest Penta number 5=4+1, man within the system perfect number) and Philly never having won a Hyperbowl before and NO illuminatti symbolism in Timberlake's halftime show.

    I didn't see the starting hour or such, Symbolism... They were embracing AI and Transhumanism big time. It's supposedly Korea's 'industry'

    I just finished doing an exercise video.

    While I was exercising, the thought occurred to me that the Beatles were probably a CIA asset, the song was probably written to set up a future event, which I was reacting to on cue.

    Here's my penance, a bit of self humiliation at 6am after not going to bed all night.

    Actually, the song "Imagine" is not a Beatles song — it was written and released on vinyl by John Lennon after the Beatles had already split up. John Lennon was a Marxist, and the song reflects his approval of Marxist ideology.

    Argon, as a fellow Grouchy (Groucho?) Marxist, I thought you’d approve.

    I almost realized that it was after the Beatles split up, but then got side-tracked by another search result that seemed to contradict it.

    Did he really approve, or was he programmed?

    I'm not actually a Marxist, and "no possession" seems like taking things a bit too far in my opinion. I can agree to the sharing of resources with the community, but personal belongings should remain personal belongings. And I include my home and my car in that.

    Well, Lennon was a child of his time. He was very much into the hippie stuff. So was that a kind of programming? I suppose that in a way it was, albeit not at a personal level. It was an entire social movement, but whether it was a grassroots thing or whether it was instigated on purpose, I do not know.

    Fact is that there were pro-communist agents at large within the USA and Europe at the time, just as there were pro-capitalist infiltrators active inside Soviet and Chinese territory. So maybe that's how the whole hippie movement got started.

    This is a short video I did on that very subject a little ways back:
    The more you want it the faster it retreats
    The faster you flee the more it pursues

    I was thinking of specific programming by the controllers behind the scenes.

    I'm also thinking that Communism and the National Socialist German Workers' Party were both engineered by the controllers.

    Capitalism would be fine if government were honest and it were in control of issuing debt-free currency.

    I might go back and review my posts on the Tavistock Institute regarding this topic.
