There's an entire school of research within public
health on how to frighten people, known as "fear appeal"
appeal is based on the premise that to successfully
implement a public health measure, you must first
highlight a threat. And, to work, the threat must be
made personal, so that people fear for their personal

include not leaving your house,
wearing a mask, staying

children home from school. In the future, we can expect
to be told we must

adding confusion to the mix, you can bring an individual
from fear to anxiety - a state of confusion in which you
can no longer think logically. In this state, you are
more easily manipulated
Eventually, when the fear and anxiety are great enough,
desperation sets in, at which point people are willing
to do just about anything to get relief
Psychiatrist Blows the Whistle on Pandemic Fearmongering
Peter Breggin, a psychiatrist, has written more than a
dozen bestselling books on psychiatry and the drug industry.
He's frequently referred
to as "the conscience of psychiatry" because he was able to
successfully reform the psychiatric profession, abolishing
lobotomies and other harmful experimental psychosurgeries.
This past year, he's homed in on
COVID-19 and the fears around it,
which is the topic of this interview (far below
He also started
researching the history of Dr.
Anthony Fauci, who has been
the face of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, learning more
than he bargained for in the process.
"He just looked like
this kindly gentleman, until I started to listen to what he was
saying and to look into what he was doing," Breggin says.
early April, [my wife] Ginger brought this scientific article to
me and said,
'Honey, this looks like it's impossible, it's fake

a new epidemic agent. They're talking about it. They've actually
accomplished it - and it's a SARS coronavirus.
It's a virus that will infect the lungs that comes from bats...
And they're checking it out and they find that it will infect
human lung epithelium. They give it to mice and the older mice
are getting very sick and ones that are compromised die.
It sounds... [like] the precursor of SARS-CoV-2. They even tried,
by the way, to make a vaccine for it and they couldn't.
'My God, what's going on here?'
And then I look down
the line of all these authors.
There are [two] Chinese names
there... and they list themselves as being from the Wuhan
Institute of Virology.
And then I look who's funding it.
Well, China is funding it.
And Fauci is funding it from the National Institute of Allergy and

Institute, nothing like that is anything but military in China."
What is Fauci's Role in the Bio-Assault on the World?
Breggin claims he was able to share the information with someone
close to President
Trump, and three days after sharing this finding,
the president canceled the U.S.-Chinese research collaboration that
was working on coronavirus gain-of-function research.
However, Fauci quickly took hold of the American research efforts
and in October 2020 injected additional funding.
Some of that
funding will surely still end up in China, Breggin says, by way of
EcoHealth Alliance, which for years has subcontracted research
work to the Wuhan Institute.
Fauci also gave additional money to the
University of Texas.
"In Galveston, there
is a Level 4 biosafety lab that can work with the most dangerous

to it, you have to use some search engines like DuckDuckGo.
[searched for] 'China' and 'the Galveston Institute,' and I got... a press release... bragging about their relationships with
the Wuhan Institute, working on viruses.
So, no wonder he's sending them money.
I start digging deeper
and I come across a letter from the education department to the
University of Texas, saying they've not been forthcoming about
their connections to China and the Communist Party (CCP), and in
particular from the Institute in Galveston.
So, I'm looking at this network of connections with China. They
list them all. We have a blog out about that too now. And I
realized there's nothing stopping Fauci.
Absolutely nothing is
stopping him. He is going to carry on his assault on the world.
And Fauci knew that the Wuhan Institute
Breggin delves into some
of the backstory that helps explain what's been happening.
Obama called for a moratorium on gain-of-function
research [making harmless viruses virulent] in the U.S.
He did not,
however, mention collaborations with the CCP.
To get around Obama's
moratorium, Fauci outsourced the gain-of-function research to the
Based on the evidence, which Breggin details in a recent report
featured in "Fauci's Treacherous Ties to China and Globalists,"
Fauci appears to play an important role in the global takeover by
Technocracy is an economic system in which the world is ruled not by
democratically elected politicians but by technocrats,
ultra-wealthy elites, scientists and technicians

resources through the use of technology.
Fear Is the
Tool of Tyrants
Breggin was asked to be the medical legal expert in a lawsuit to put
a stop to the never-ending emergency edict by the
governor of Ohio.

This is a well-known fact, and as noted by Breggin, there's an entire school of research within public health
on how to frighten people, known as "fear appeal."
"What an odd name:
It's a euphemism for scaring people to death.
That's how you 'appeal' to them. And it's a very long standing

The particular article [Ginger and I] studied together made
It said, first, you have to not only create
something or have something that people are afraid of in order
to get your public health measures imposed, but you have to make
it personal to them, you have to make them afraid personally.
Then you have to give them something immediate to do to begin
cooperating with the plans that you have. We have many examples

damage, it doesn't raise issues of the Bill of Rights, the
constitution, of liberty, the right to people to die with their
boots on, the American tradition of individuals and their own

There is no such concept.
It starts with the assumption that
what public health officials think is true and must be applied
regardless of the context.

The end goal is to push us into a state of helplessness,
so that they can come in and "rescue" us.
For decades, Breggin has
studied learned helplessness and its remedies.
"When we're born,
we're fundamentally helpless.
All we can do to be taken care of
is to express pain, we can cry, we can wiggle, we can express

have to be saved, basically.
We look to other people, we look to
drugs, alcohol, we look to authoritarian religions, we look to
leaders of all kinds."
From Fear to
Anxiety to Desperation
As explained by Breggin, by adding confusion to the mix, you can
bring an individual from fear to anxiety, a state of confusion in
which you cannot think straight anymore...
One of the characteristics
of a panic attack or an anxiety attack is the loss of the ability to

to get relief.
"So this, folks, is a
web of fear," Breggin says.
"It's all about scaring us,
confusing us, making us helpless. I recently wrote a chapter
that I may or may not put it in the book about my 85 years of
looking at fear, because I was alive during World War II.

was his supposed villainousness - not wanting to scare people...
That's what Roosevelt did, that's what every single person has
done in great moments of crisis - they have said 'Let us not be
afraid,' because we all know that a country that is unafraid and
is doing as much of its normal activity as possible, is the
strongest possible country.
That's an actual public health principle:
that we function best
when we are living a normal life, unafraid, and we have ideals
and goals like American liberty and freedom to strive for."
The Biology of
So, just what happens in your body when you experience fear?

getting all their drugs and vaccines ready."
to Corruption are Reason, Love and Liberty
Realizing the depth of the scientific corruption was part of why
Breggin and his wife, Ginger, decided to take on this whole new
field of investigation.
"We knew we had the
research expertise and the scientific expertise.
And I've got so
many published books and scientific articles that I don't think
anybody can doubt I'm a researcher and a scientist," he says.
"It was so mind-blowing to see the degree of corruption. I
actually imagined standing in front of God, explaining why I
didn't do anything.
That didn't fly very
I think the best
looking at all this corruption is, first of all, to
know this world has always been a corrupt place...
So, we need to learn to keep our own free will intact, and to
love. We need reason and love. We can reason, we can love and
respect the liberty of other people.
Those are my three key
words in life:
Reason, love and liberty...
You want to overcome
your helplessness, [and you] do that with reason."
What's at Stake
Educating and supporting others are other strategies that can be
Investigate things for yourself, and then share what you've
learned with others. The way out of helplessness is to be of service
to others, to contribute in some way.
As noted by Breggin:
"We need to buckle up
at this point and really see ourselves as an example of
succeeding in the face of all this, and to spread it however far
and wide we can...
We weren't promised an easy life.
There's just no place that I know of that is a mammoth promise
of an easy life.

I agree with Breggin that the most important thing right now is to
recognize that what we're facing is an acute challenge to our
society, our culture, that must be faced head-on.
We need to aid our
fellow human beings as best as we can with information, knowledge,
that the conventional mainstream media is not telling them.

For this reason, it has become imperative to seek out other
channels of information, most of which are becoming progressively
more censored and harder to find.
