Five lessons for the effective digital soldier

Digital Soldier

I have volunteered to do a short recorded talk for the ARISE USA Tour that is hitting 84 locations across 50 states. I will share the video with you as soon as it is available. In the meantime, I have turned my notes into a readable script to pass around.

I am a notorious commentator on current events. My roles including being a writer and artist, as well as a recovering computer scientist. I am based in London, am British by birth and passport, but American by outlook and former residency (in Kansas City). My book Open Your Mind To Change, with a foreword by Robert David Steele, was recently censored by Amazon. You can still download a free copy at openmindschange.com.

This is not a talk about my book. It is also not a talk about Q, Donald Trump, The Great Awakening, the Second American Revolution, psychopaths, propaganda, censorship, big tech, the future of the Internet — or many other topics that I could speak on.

Is a talk about… you. You matter. You are important. You need to look after you.

What I have to say about looking after yourself is grounded in my own personal experience. Until recently I was an obscure telecoms philosopher guru, with a side interest in ethics, privacy, and power. I have made an unexpected transition into being a controversial public figure attacked in Newsweek and the Financial Times. I have had to learn new ways of being in the world; a life of ostracism has its hardships.

Digital soldiers like me and you are involved in real combat.

For we are in the midst of an unnamed war – perhaps the Silent War or the Satanic War. Three noteworthy things define this war for me.

Firstly, it is unrestricted: there is no distinction between civilian and military participants, and all domains are weaponised (think science, religion, food, healthcare, media, etc.). As a consequence, we are all participants.

Secondly, it is irregular and unconventional: this is a war of infiltration (not invasion by men in uniform). The subversion is done using AI, nanotech, and biotech — plus blackmail, intimidation, and cross-promotion of “psychopath club” members. The absence of visible bullets and bombs can be confusing; it’s still war.

Thirdly, it is undeclared: the brainwashed laugh at you for telling them they are at war. You get preprogrammed ridicule, mocking, and hate for questioning their beliefs, and the righteous challenge of obvious wrongs. But once everyone understands we are at war, it is effectively over.

We can also locate this new unnamed global war in its context of history.

WW1 was characterised by the mud and gore of the trenches. War was mechanised, and the machine gun could deal out bodily harm at a (short) distance. Family were safe at home, far from the battlefield.

WW2 automated war, and brought mass media and mass psychology fully into play. Missiles, bombers, and WMD dealt physical terror to the public from “out of range”. But there was still “rest and recreation” away from the fighting.

WW3 (i.e. this war) is a “smart” bio-informatic war. Your family are hostage to media mind control and genocidal pharmaceutical companies. It is fought in the home and the family as much as the skies or the subsoil. There is no escape, anywhere.

AI technology has been abused to forcibly divide us via social media. Physical and mental poisoning have weakened us against malign influence. In this war psyches are being shredded, not bodies. There is no bleeding, but it is every bit as violent as trench warfare.

We are passing new frontiers of human experience, both good and bad. In this war every social and familial relationship is changed. This challenges the core of our sense of self and safety, since our bedrock of comforting friendship and family care is being “carpet bombed” by lies.

The result for many Patriots who are awake and aware is an extreme isolation and distress. Winning this war is a personal quest for perseverance and endurance. It is indeed full blown spiritual warfare.

As a result there are omnipresent risks of self-harm, self-sabotage, and self-destruction. Nobody is immune from these. Digital soldiers don’t have the institutional backup that “regular” military do. We have to look after ourselves, as nobody else is paid to do it.

Having been on the battlefield for multiple years, I would like to share five lessons on being and effective digital soldier in a bio-information war. This is not about how to use social media to spread the word, or discern truth from lies, or deal with enemy trolls. Is about how you live your daily life when war is raging across every domain of your own existence.

Lesson #1: Put on your own oxygen mask first

We know we can only help others if we are not in distress and needing help. Yet this is easier said than done. A friend assisted me to put myself first my pulling together the following framework last year:

Martin Geddes Action Scaffolding

The details don’t matter at this point beyond the first priority is my own welfare. I take responsibility for the outcome by staying in control of myself. It was never intended for public consumption.

As I am accountable only for myself I have a weekly call with my “accountability partner”. If I have slept, had enough good food, and not engaged in self-sabotage then it was a good enough day. Do that seven times in a row, and it was a good enough week. I don’t have to achieve anything beyond this on any particular day.

As such, I have experienced a paradox. In order to persevere in the long run, raising my overall standard of attainment, I need to lower my threshold for “success” on any one day. Living to fight another day is sufficient, because no single day wins the war.

Achievement is not (only) about getting an Ivy League degree, or professional awards, or seeing your family grow. The outer world matters, but it is not primary. We instead need to focus on internal metrics over external ones. Only inner peace leads to world peace.

I aim high for joy and achievement and winning, but I also have to be realistic — else a “despair gap” can open up between idealised hope and lived experience. I have learned that it is OK to stop any and all other activity in order to protect my own physical and mental health.

I have de-scheduled my life and rarely make fixed appointments. I still have calls and meetings, but they are arranged on the fly. This avoids the stress of overtiring myself when meeting (over-)commitments. “Duvet days” do happen, but so do “devastation days” for the enemy when I am at maximum productive power. That’s OK too.

We “anons” are “directed evidence weapons”; and we need to recharge and reload to refire. We have to adopt a different relationship to time to de-stress, since there is no place away from the fighting. Everything in the world happens when it is meant to; what matters is managing my own rhythms and routines.

I have a daily walk whenever I can. You might have weekly church, therapy, a support group, dinner with friend; do whatever works for you.

Lesson #2: Come and fight as you are already

You might be addicted, divorced, depressed, disabled, indebted… it doesn’t matter. In this war, willingness to fight is the only quality that gets you recruited and promoted as a cyber warrior.

My own friends range from professors to prostitutes. (Payment to professors for a mindfook is of debatable value.) The prostitutes never sold their soul to any institution; they are the godly and awake ones. The professors have swallowed the propaganda; they are the ungodly and asleep ones.

All traditional metrics of “respectability” and “fit for military service” are irrelevant or reversed. Everyone is a combatant, including the university teachers and street hookers. And the latter are the better spiritual fighters in my experience.

Don’t wait to be “perfected” before you fight. Your struggles are what made you ideal for this job, not your certificates. The more struggles you have overcome, the better! Indeed, spiritual warfare “special forces” come in very unlikely packaging by conventional military standards.

“Knowing your madness” is enough; you don’t have to resolve it before you fight. “Stop the personal cataclysms” is all that is asked. Anything that could inhibit you making it to fight another day has to be dealt with and changed. No more.

Fight first, can fix yourself later.

Lesson #3. Your work has changed; recharging and repair is “core” work too

Every spiritual warrior needs intellectual plus intuitive intelligence; a mix of head and heart. It is easy to worry about the future, or argue over the past — head stuff. In contrast, making, gardening, crafting, nurturing, or decorating are “NOW” activities — heart stuff.

In this war, hobbies are essential self-care, recovery time, and personal growth. Energy spent to do these is not the opposite of work, and not a retreat from battle. There is no R&R away from the battle, as it is pervasive! You have to treat this personal time as sacred and inviolable.

For me as introvert I like walks with my camera. Photography is an appreciation of what I already have around me. An extrovert may need a more social activity to recharge. The enemy wants you demoralised and sick; only you can ensure your are energised and well. Your “hobby” is a priority claim on your time.

Spiritual work is still work and is part of the job description of spiritual warriors in a spiritual war. There is no obligation to be miserable even during an attempted genocide. Good spirits arise from the natural bliss of being “in the now”.

Lesson #4. Don’t become a rescuer, especially an uninvited one

There are many victims in a war of deception. This invites us to join the “victim, persecutor, rescuer” triangle. The obvious example here is the desire to “rescue” others from their free will choice to take the (possibly lethal bioweapon) “vaccines”.

With these mRNA gene therapies we have to protect children (who cannot give informed consent), but must accept the damage to other others acting under free will, even if they have been deceived. Unconditional love is not unconditional support, and we are entitled (indeed obliged) to socially re-contract any relationship to protect ourselves from others’ madness.

When a relative is engaged in reckless or irresponsible acts like this we can ask “what is the impact on me” – say in travel time, care effort, and money outlay to look after the injured. Informed consent is for everyone — including YOU. If you were not consulted before someone joined a dangerous medical experiment, you are not required to act as if the outcome is an “accident” and engage in rescue.

We do what we can for loved ones, but they have to face the consequences of their own choices. If we can discuss these matters before they act, then it is at least possible to agree boundaries on what is a fair and reasonable burden of responsibility for you to carry if things go wrong. If we cannot, then they get the worst “deal” that conscience can bear.

These bad outcomes are necessary learnings for the whole of our society. Each soul has a path, and trying to save every soul saves nobody. Pick who you engage with based on your “energy budget”, and don’t take on the karma of other souls. If spending time with the unawake and arrogant is costly, then don’t do it! They cannot be saved from their scorn and folly.

Find your new “soul family” who do not seek or desire rescue. They will feed you in a reciprocal, responsible, and respectful way. These new bonds will last us a lifetime.

Lesson #5. Never, ever compromise or give up

Never, ever compromise or give up
Never, ever compromise or give up
Never, ever compromise or give up

Got it?

When it comes to compromise, you can still make a tactical compromise to meet a strategic goal. So do wear a mask on a plane to go to a funeral to get closure; but never irreversibly surrender your autonomy or integrity.

If you make a mistake — they are ordinary — own it, accept it, learn from it, and MOVE ON. Don’t spend your days in self-reproach and guilt and shame. It’s harmful and self-indulgent. Spiritual warriors discard their overweight baggage at the first opportunity.

As for giving up, it is always a choice. We will all wobble and have off days. We have bad habits and want to drown the pain. Relapse is not giving up, it is just regrettable. Lying down to rest is not giving up. It is restoring. Screaming is not giving up. It is release.

Not giving up means a constant faith in humanity, openness to new ideas and change, and a point blank refusal to take the “black pill” and wallow in the false comfort of a suicidal hopelessness.

It is OK to be struggling and to feel vulnerable. It is OK to need help. It is OK to receive blessings of resources. It is a “pay it forward” gift and love economy, not a “pay it back” transactional and hoarding one.

At the end of the day, Patriots are hotties — and on the right side of history too as a bonus.

Stay sexy.
Stay sane.
And stay the course.
