Feminist icon and bestselling author, Naomi Wolf joins Sarah Westall for an excellent interview about the breathtaking controlled demolition of our civilization.
During her 35-year career, Naomi had almost only known extraordinary success. Her legacy as a thought leader of the Liberal World Order seemed secure until 2020, when she began to publicly question the COVID lockdowns.
Her latest book, The Bodies of Others: The New Authoritarians, Covid-19 and the War Against the Human has now permanently ejected her from the good graces of polite society, to say nothing of social media, from which she’s been widely de-platformed.
Despite having written several bestselling books, including this latest one, no one in the mainstream will review it – but you can read Lew Rockwell’s first-rate analysis, here.
Naomi talks to Sarah about the breakneck dismantling of the most basic Western values of critical thinking and open inquiry that we’ve observed in the past two years, with the criminalization of dissent and “misinformation” in the DHS’ Disinformation Governance Board and in a bill being discussed in the EU that would exact heavy fines from those who share “medical misinformation” on social media.
It’s as if the West is being subjected to mass behavior modification to make us conform to a Chinese Communist model and she mentions here that this is a very real element in what’s occurring. Those US states with the deepest economic ties to China, like New York and California have become the most oppressive and unrecognizable during this engineered crisis.
She says, “I just want to tell people, when you’re feeling confused or disoriented and like, ‘Is this America? What’s going on?’ This is intentional. This is how the CCP wages war and now they have AI to help them.”
As a lifelong Democrat who voted for Biden, Naomi describes the Democrats’ lockstep conformity to this tyranny as “embarrassing and dangerous” but she correctly points out that this is not a partisan issue and that what’s happening may well be beyond our ken. As a secular Jew, she has found a faith in God that she never previously had and she says she loves Jesus, who she describes as “my rabbi” and “the greatest social justice warrior, ever.”
“These people are so evil and their attack on humanity and on the West is so comprehensive – well, I’ll just say what I believe, Sarah – I’m a very critical thinker. I’m not trying to blow my own horn, it’s just what I do. I’ve looked at this attack on us for the last two years from every level and it’s so global in scale, it’s so well-coordinated, it’s so kind of demonic in its imagination; so comprehensive – and I also have studied politics and history my whole life. In no other circumstance – not even in Nazi Germany’s ascent – have I seen such a supernatural amount of coordination…
“And I can’t understand this without reference to non-human, no-material reality. In other words, I actually think this is a Satanic attack on humanity. And I’m not a woo-woo person. I never talk about this stuff in public but I think we have to face it. These are meta human powers, I think we’re up against.
“And that’s not necessarily all bad news. Paradoxically, concluding that this was a meta human level of evil, with supernaturally efficient skillsets led me to believe in God more literally than I ever have…
“I’m not proselytizing, I’m not asking people to believe or see what I see but I cannot understand this global – the sophistication and skill and complexity of this as attributable to just human politics. Even bad politics – even bad people. It doesn’t make sense.
“It only makes sense on a metaphysical level that we don’t understand yet.
“So, I guess what I’m trying to say is if that’s the case, I don’t really think we have any hope – just us, alone – but I do think if there is a metaphysics involved, maybe we have hope by prayer or repentance or I’m literally reading the Old Testament these days, and like, ‘What? What are we supposed to do? Tell me, Prophets! I don’t know, this is too horrible.’
“But it could be ‘Principalities and Powers’ that we don’t understand. But other cultures, other civilizations in the past have cleaned up their own act and at least in the Western narrative, that helped them deter their worst enemies, their worst outcomes.
“That’s my best offering to this community. That’s all I’ve got, because this is really bad.”
