About this Photograph: Small metal milk pots are hooked to the back of a Hindu devotee. The milk pots have fish hook-like needles that are pierced into the skin, so the pots hang from the devotee’s skin. It is considered a sort of physical burden in pursuit of atonement. This ritual is performed during the Hindu celebration of Thaipusam.

About this Photograph:
Three hands guide and attach small metal milk pots to the back of a Hindu devotee. The milk pots have fish hook-like needles that are pierced into the skin so that the pots can hang from the devotee’s skin — each one an added weight to their physical pain of burden. This exercise of faith is considered a sort of physical trial in the pursuit of atonement. This ritual is performed during the Hindu celebration of Thaipusam.

LET’S TALK ABOUT ‘FACES’ and THE CONTINUING “FACE FORCE FIELDS”‘ RULES AFFECTING the PHOTOGRAPHY of PEOPLE

Copyright 2013 Nawfal Johnson. This is the Temple Priest at the KUIL ARULMIGU BALATHANDAYUTHAPANI TEMPLE. Malaysia. Imagine attempting an impromptu candid portrait today, where he would be forced to wear a m-ask in public: The photograph would be ruined.

 

“For me, a face without a smile is more expressive, tells much more. The disadvantage of smiling is that it takes over all other facial expressions.”

~ Peter Lindbergh (born Peter Brodbeck; 23 November 1944 – 3 September 2019) was a German fashion photographer and film director. ~

 

“FOR ME, A Face WITHOUT A FACE, is as painfully boring as watching two snails race. Nevertheless, I think I’d prefer watching snails race, rather than photograph people wearing face force fields. On one condition, as long as there were a few good snail crashes — who doesn’t like a knarley snail crash!”

I said that!

At this point, I would love to photograph interesting people out in public, with their faces showing, even if all they showed me were smiles — That would be 1,000% better than only seeing people in public with faces covered….Expressionless Zombies.

☆ This is what I see when I go out in public now: Get a load of this nightmare.

OF COURSE IT DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU LIVE

I live in a place where the Face Force Field is Mandatory in Public….STILL!

People put up with this lunacy, so the powers-that-be can continue the agenda to make UN-SOCIAL Behaviour, the Newest Normal.

IF YOU THROW ENOUGH PRO-OP-A-GANDA (mis-spellings are intentional because I wish NOT to be shadowbanned again) at the population, many will believe everything they are being fed, even though it makes no logical or scientific sense.

I think the great Sociologist, Gustave Le Bon, said it best in his book, “The Crowd A Study of the Popular Mind” :

“Not truth, but error has always been the chief factor in the evolution of nations, and the reason why socialism is so powerful today is that it constitutes the last illusion that is still vital. In spite of all scientific demonstrations it continues on the increase. Its principal strength lies in the fact that it is championed by minds sufficiently ignorant of things as they are in reality to venture boldly to promise mankind happiness. The social illusion reigns today upon all the heaped-up ruins of the past, and to it belongs the future. The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduce them. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim.”

The Face Force Field is an illusion, pushed so hard as some sort of savior-Deus ex machina (along with the HOLY-J-a-b), that The Crowd MUST BELIEVE, especially in places where the people are shunned (and punished in many cases) for questioning the self-appointed, titled, superior, power-holders and their policies.

BUT WAIT, WHAT’S THIS!?!

From all of the reports, and research I have read, this is the most accurate description I have read, so far — it is about the Physics. However, in places like where I live, apparently, they don’t care about the Physics. They care about….I don’t know what exactly….maybe the total control of “The Crowd Mind”, and damn the Physics! As far as I know, from being out yesterday, EVERYONE is still forced to wear face force fields (or be heavily fined), no one can dine inside at restaurants, no one can gather at religious sites (mosques, churches, temples), and, I sigh in disbelief, this has dragged on so hellishly long. There is absolutely no incentive to go out in these conditions, and expect to take candid photographs of people on the street, like I enjoyed doing, not so long ago, well, maybe it has been a long time — 2019.

APPARANTLY, THE POLITICIANS WHO ARE STILL ENFORCING FACE FORCE FIELDS HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS RECENT STUDY BY THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF PHYSICS (AIP) THAT CLEARLY PROVES THAT ALL TYPES OF M-A-S-K-S DO NOT SUFFICIENTLY STOP V–I-R-A-L PARTICLES FROM DISPERSING OUT OF THE M-A-S-K-S.

“it was found that m-a-s-ks would not offer complete protection to a susceptible person from a v-i-r-a-l in-fec-tion” at a distance of less than 6 feet. Of course, they spin the findings, to support social distancing and m-a-s-k policies, even though they prove that face force fields are not very useful. It’s funny how they can prove the agenda WRONG, but go on to say, BUT GO AHEAD AND CONTINUE THE DRACONIAN MEASURES ON THE PEOPLE because it’s good for them. Just ignore that m-a-s-k-s in this sort of situation do no good, but go out an buy some more and make sure you wear them when going outside, in the fresh air, so you don’t endanger grandma, or you will be punished — OBEY!

The politicians where I live, are foaming at the mouth (probably literally) to v-a-x EVERYONE! And, in their daily pro-p-a-ganda they send out to all cell phones (thru SMS), they tell The Crowd, it is their duty, their obligation, to HELP PROTECT, grandma, the community, blah, blah, blah, don’t k-i-l-l grandma basically. I don’t think they got the memo from Is-ra-el and Ireland, that the SUPER-V-A-X-X-ED are being hos-pi-tal-ized MORE for being in-f-ect-ed with the Koof, than the rest of the population!

WAIT — WHAT’S THIS! Double-J-a-b-b-ed people overrunning the ERs! This country is VERY v-a-x-x-ed, and the numbers of cases are on the rise. Gee, I wonder why? Could the increase in cases of the Koof correlate with the increased number of fully v-a-x-x-ed people? I would guess YES; but you will never hear any of these theories in those daily SMS pro-p-a-gan-da messages we get from the health ministry. All they (the powers-that-be) care about is continuing the illusion, as Le Bon states, “The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduce them.”
The numbers DON’T LIE: He said it, not me.
Well, what’s this? Natural im-m-unity is awesome! I’m not getting that memo here, and I doubt that they (powers-that-be), want the general population to know this information — it goes against whatever N-W-0 agenda that seems to be playing out.

I didn’t intend this post to be as much of a rant as it is turning out to be, but oh well:

Edward Bernays warned in his book, PROP-A-GANDA, the following dark truths about what the powers-that-be do to manipulate the masses:

“ORGANIZING CHAOS: The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.We are governed, our minds molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.Our invisible governors are, in many cases, unaware of the identity of their fellow members in the inner cabinet.They govern us by their qualities of natural leadership, their ability to supply needed ideas and by their key position in the social structure.”

“Conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses…” what more must be said. It is in full swing. The masses have fallen. Some resist. But here, it is business as usual for “those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society”.

Quotes by Edward Bernays

I just want to be able to take candid people photography like I did, prior to 2020, and who knows if, or when, that may happen.
