News from CJ Hopkins & Consent Factory
November 2022 edition
OK, if you’re one of the hundreds of new free subscribers to my Substack, this is my formerly monthly now irregularly published newsletter (i.e., not one of my columns), in which I try, and usually fail, to concisely share a few news items I think you might possibly be interested in at least knowing about without rambling on at gratuitously excessive length. I’m going to try, once again, to do that now. Ready? Here we go …
Part 3 of WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT MR. GLOBAL, the series of dialogues I had with Catherine Austin Fitts about what I call “GloboCap” and she calls “Mr. Global,” the rollout of the New Normal, the Going Direct Reset, propaganda, totalitarianism, God, and other things like that, will be released on Sunday, November 20 (which, if you’re reading this newsletter in an email today, is tomorrow).
I’ll send out another Substack post with links when it is released tomorrow. In the meantime, if you are new to the series or missed Part 1 or Part 2 and would like to catch up, you can read more about it and follow the links here.
Here’s a fairly short video interview I did for PANDA’s “Deafening Silencing” series about censorship in the New Normal. You can click on the image to watch it on the PANDA site, or you can watch it on YouTube, unless they have censored it by now.
As some of you might recall, I was just in Copenhagen recently for the release of the Danish translation of The Rise of the New Normal Reich, Consent Factory Essays, Vol. III (2020-2021), which was published by Det Poetiske Bureau Forlag in October, after the book was banned by Amazon in Germany, Austria, and The Netherlands, and had a “Covid vaccine advisory” warning slapped on it in every other country. While I was there, we organized a little international panel discussion/brainstorming/info event regarding censorship and independent publishing, which OVALmedia streamed. Robert Cibis (OVALmedia) Søren Kristoffersen (Det Poetiske Bureau), Simon Elmer (Architects for Social Housing), Kit Knightly (OffGuardian), Elze van Hamelen (Der Andere Krant), Piers Robinson and Heike Brunner (PANDA), and Catherine Austin Fitts (Solari) were kind enough to take part on short notice. We experienced a few technical difficulties during the streaming, but OVALmedia has cleaned everything up and released the video here on the OVALmedia website (or just click the image). More information about the event is here in one of my earlier posts.
So, there you are ... that’s the news. I think I did pretty well this time with the not-rambling-on-at-gratuitously-excessive-length thing. I’m trying to allocate my time and energy a bit more strictly these days. I’ve finally started dystopian novel No. 2, which got derailed in 2020 by the rollout of the New Normal, and … well, the whole last two dystopian years. For fans of my first novel, ZONE 23, this next one is not a sequel or anything, but it does take place in the same fictional world. It’ll probably take a couple of years to write. I’m getting old, so the getting-totally-jacked-up-on-amphetamines-and-writing-non-stop-on-a-roll-of-teletype-like-Kerouac mode is a thing of the past. I never wrote that way, actually, but I did use to write for way too long on way too much coffee and nicotene. Also, I have got this political satire and commentary gig now, which I plan to keep up with as, God help us all, the election season starts up again in the USA, and the entire GloboCap propaganda apparatus turns its attention to “The Return of the Revenge of Russian-backed Literal Hitler,” and the New Normal continues to evolve, and so on.
Finally, I just want to say thank you again to all you paid Substack subscribers (and old-time Patreon patrons, and all you other supporters) for your financial support. I could not be doing this gig without you, or not the way I have been doing it, anyway. I’m not getting rich or anything, but getting paid directly by my readers (rather than by some GloboCap media corporation which I would have to deceive into hiring and paying me to write by pretending to be “normal” and seriously toning my whole act down) is a great blessing … so, thank you!
All best, as ever, from New Normal Berlin,
P.S. If you’re wondering about that photo at the top, I took it while I was visiting the grave of Søren Kierkegaard during my stay in Copenhagen, which isn’t as creepy as it probably sounds. I was staying right across the street from that cemetery, which the Danes also use as a public park. There were Danes in there having picnics in the rain, many of whom resembled Vikings … except for the hi-tech all-weather sportswear.
