When I interviewed Alison McDowell in January of this year it was because her appearance on the Higherside Chat podcast was so eye-opening, I felt compelled to have a conversation with her about how I saw technocracy developing in Zoom Town (Missoula).
Four months later, in April, I wrote this post about the conflicted role of blockchain technology and the rift that emerged between the purist position, as represented by Alison McDowell, and other activists, like Derrick Broze of the Conscience Resistance network.
McDowell made an appearance in the comment thread of that post to inform me that, due to my critical writing on the purist position, we are not “on the same page”. I was quite disappointed with her attitude toward this rift, and the speed in which an ally (myself) was written off for discussing it.
In June, an interview Whitney Webb did put this whole rift into context when she painfully recounted how a personal relationship with a man by the name of Raul Diego turned into a manipulative, toxic dumpster fire that seemingly pulled Alison McDowell (through Diego) into this conflagration. I wrote another post about this evolving situation.
The reason I’m going through this brief history is because Alison McDowell is back on The Higherside Chat podcast with another mind-blowing interview about the Graphene World Order. As I’ve consistently maintained, McDowell’s research is VERY important, which is why the manner in which she has allowed division to seep into the crypto-space has been so damn frustrating.
Near the end of the interview, McDowell talks about how to build resistance to the schemes of the predator class, but her discourse, at least for me, is no longer something I can just take at face value. I can still appreciate her research, but the damage to the social cohesion this rift has caused is not going to just disappear overnight.
One of the researchers McDowell mentioned in the THC interview is “Stephers”, a contributor to Mark Tokarski’s blog, Piece of Mindful. Here is a recent post she wrote about graphene.
While all this research is absolutely critical to furthering our understanding of the predator class’ movements to gaslight our cognitive functioning while herding us into a global, technocratic control grid, our understanding won’t mean a damn thing if we are wasting time and energy fighting each other over personal mitigation strategies that may or may not include using crypto-currencies as a tool.
All that said, I STRONGLY encourage RD readers to listen to McDowell on The Higherside Chat. The information is important and shouldn’t be discounted just because the messenger, McDowell, has negatively impacted the cohesion of the resistance movement with her anti-cypto purist stance.
