This articles goes into projection and how it appears in the world both personally, via mental health, in groups, in business, in war, religions, and more. Projection is a mental health issue that everyone needs to understand and know more about, as it is a root cause of violence, war and killing.
STORIES AROUND PROJECTION
A very simplified explanation of what projection consists of, is available via this link…
TED TALKS: GENERAL MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES DISCUSSION
Ted Talks discusses mental health issues generally. There is a stigma around mental health illnesses and issues. We have all been depressed, anxious, stressed out, or fearful. But major mental health issues are like heart attacks, as they need professional intervention. If you have a serious mental illness, you will more than likely die much earlier than someone who does not have this illness, as a major mental illness is usually also related to a major physical health issue.
Many people believe drugs are the answer for all mental health issues, such as anxiety for example. Cognitive behaviour therapy, also known as ‘talk therapy’ is superior to drugs, when it comes to the less serious mental health issues, such as anxiety, according to studies. Talk therapy can also help a person through a mental issue such as projection, which is detailed below.
There should not be a stigma attached to mental health issues or diseases, as mental health issues are no different from physical health issues.
The phenomena of transference and projection, although solidly accepted in the analytical and psychodynamic schools of psychology in which they originated, are nevertheless complex and often misunderstood concepts. Yet some claim that projection is the single most important phenomenon in psychotherapy.
In this video, Richard Hill helps you understand what transference and projection are, how they develop in a therapeutic relationship, and what forms they tend to take, so that you can recognize them as they occur in your therapy rooms and in your life.

Wikipedia; “Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against unpleasant impulses by denying their existence in themselves, while attributing them to others. For example, a person who is rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude.
According to some research, the projection of one’s negative qualities onto others is a common process in everyday life.
A prominent precursor in the formulation of the projection principle was Giambattista Vico(23 June 1668 – 23 January 1744), and an early formulation of it is found in ancient Greek writer Xenophanes (c.c. 570 – c. 475 BC), which observed that “the gods of Ethiopians were inevitably black with flat noses while those of the Thracians were blond with blue eyes.” In 1841, Ludwig Feuerbach (July 28, 1804 – September 13, 1872), was the first to employ this concept as the basis for a systematic critique of religion.
Projection was conceptualised by Freud in his letters to Wilhelm Fliess, and further refined byKarl Abraham and Anna Freud. Freud considered that in projection thoughts, motivations, desires, and feelings that cannot be accepted as one’s own are dealt with by being placed in the outside world and attributed to someone else. What the ego repudiates is split off and placed in another.
Freud would later come to believe that projection did not take place arbitrarily, but rather seized on and exaggerated an element that already existed on a small scale in the other person.(The related defence of projective identification differs from projection in that there the other person is expected to become identified with the impulse or desire projected outside, so that the self maintains a connection with what is projected, in contrast to the total repudiation of projection proper.)
Melanie Klein saw the projection of good parts of the self as leading potentially to over-idealisation of the object. Equally, it may be one’s conscience that is projected, in an attempt to escape its control: a more benign version of this allows one to come to terms with outside authority.
Carl Jung considered that the unacceptable parts of the personality represented by the Shadowarchetype were particularly likely to give rise to projection, both small-scale and on a national/international basis.Marie-Louise Von Franz extended his view of projection, stating that: “… wherever known reality stops, where we touch the unknown, there we project an archetypal image”.
Psychological projection is one of the medical explanations of bewitchment used to explain the behavior of the afflicted children at Salem in 1692. The historian John Demos asserts that the symptoms of bewitchment experienced by the afflicted girls were due to the girls undergoing psychological projection of repressed aggression.
Projection of marital guilt: Thoughts of infidelity to a partner may be unconsciouslyprojected in self-defence on to the partner in question, so that the guilt attached to the thoughts can be repudiated or turned to blame instead, in a process linked to denial.
Bullying: A bully may project his/her own feelings of vulnerability onto the target(s) of the bullying activity. Despite the fact that a bully’s typically denigrating activities are aimed at the bully’s targets, the true source of such negativity is ultimately almost always found in the bully’s own sense of personal insecurity and/or vulnerability.
Such aggressive projections of displaced negative emotions can occur anywhere from the micro-level of interpersonal relationships, all the way up through to the macro-level of international politics, or even international armed conflict.
Projection of general guilt: Projection of a severe conscience is another form of defence, one which may be linked to the making of false accusations, personal or political.
Projection of hope: Also, in a more positive light, a patient may sometimes project his or her feelings of hope onto the therapist.
Defence mechanisms may result in healthy or unhealthy consequences depending on the circumstances and frequency the mechanism is used. In Freudianpsychoanalytic theory, defence mechanisms are psychological strategies brought into play by the unconscious mind tomanipulate, deny, or distort reality in order to defend against feelings of anxiety and unacceptable impulses to maintain one’s self schema.
These processes that manipulate, deny, or distort reality may include the following: repression, or the burying of a painful feeling or thought from one’s awareness even though it may resurface in a symbolic form; identification, incorporating an object or thought into oneself;and rationalization, the justification of one’s behavior and motivations by substituting “good” acceptable reasons for the motivations. Generally, repression is considered the basis for other defense mechanisms.
Healthy persons normally use different defences throughout life. An ego defence mechanism becomes pathological only when its persistent use leads to maladaptive behaviour such that the physical or mental health of the individual is adversely affected. The purpose of ego defence mechanisms is to protect the mind/self/ego from anxiety and/or social sanctions and/or to provide a refuge from a situation with which one cannot currently cope.
EVALUATE USING DEFENSE STYLE QUESTIONNAIRE DSQ 40
One resource used to evaluate these mechanisms is the Defense Style Questionnaire (DSQ-40).
Defense mechanisms are distinct from coping strategies in that the former are largely unconscious mechanisms which are activated in times of anxiety, stress and distress without any choice or conscious intentionality, while the latter are conscious strategies that are chosen in calm emotional states. Coping thus involves flexibility and defenses are more rigid, distort logistics, are unstoppable and their goal is to reduce anxiety not to solve the source of the anxiety.
Definitions of individual psyche structures
Freud proposed three structures of the psyche or personality:
Id: The id is the unconscious reservoir of the libido, the psychic energy that fuels instincts and psychic processes. It is a selfish, childish, pleasure-oriented part of the personality with no ability to delay gratification.
Superego: The superego contains internalised societal and parental standards of “good” and “bad”, “right” and “wrong” behaviour. They include conscious appreciations of rules and regulations as well as those incorporated unconsciously.
Ego: The ego acts as a moderator between the pleasure sought by the id and the morals of the superego, seeking compromises to pacify both. It can be viewed as the individual’s “sense of time and place”.
Primary and secondary processes
In the ego, there are two ongoing processes. First there is the unconscious primary process, where the thoughts are not organised in a coherent way, the feelings can shift, contradictions are not in conflict or are just not perceived that way, and condensations arise.
There is no logic and no time line. Lust is important for this process. By contrast, there is the conscious secondary process, where strong boundaries are set and thoughts must be organised in a coherent way. Most conscious thoughts originate here.
The reality principle
Id impulses are not appropriate in civilised society, so there is societal pressure to modify the pleasure principle in favour of the reality principle; that is, the requirements of the external world.
Formation of the superego
The superego forms as the child grows and learns parental and social standards. The superego consists of two structures: the conscience, which stores information about what is “bad” and what has been punished, and the ego ideal, which stores information about what is “good” and what one “should” do or be.
EGO’S USE OF DEFENSE MECHANISMS
When anxiety becomes overwhelming, it is the ego’s place to protect the person by employing defence mechanisms. Guilt, embarrassment and shame often accompany anxiety. In the first definitive book on defence mechanisms, The Ego and the Mechanisms of Defence (1936),Anna Freud introduced the concept of signal anxiety; she stated that it was “not directly a conflicted instinctual tension but a signal occurring in the ego of an anticipated instinctual tension”.
The signaling function of anxiety is thus seen as a crucial one and biologically adapted to warn the organism of danger or a threat to its equilibrium. The anxiety is felt as an increase in bodily or mental tension and the signal that the organism receives in this way allows it the possibility of taking defensive action regarding the perceived danger. Defence mechanisms work by distorting the id impulses into acceptable forms, or by unconscious or conscious blockage of these impulses.
THEORIES AND CLASSIFICATIONS
The list of defence mechanisms is huge and there is no theoretical consensus on the exact number. Classifying defence mechanisms according to some of their properties (like underlying mechanisms, similarities or connections with personality) has been attempted. Different theorists have different categorizations and conceptualizations of defence mechanisms. Large reviews of theories of defence mechanisms are available from Paulhus, Fridhandler and Hayes (1997) and Cramer (1991). The Journal of Personality published a special issue on defence mechanisms (1998).
Both Anna Freud and her famous father Sigmund studied defense mechanisms but Anna spent more of her time and research on five main mechanisms: repression, regression, projection, reaction formation, and sublimation. All defence mechanisms are responses to anxiety and how the consciousness and unconscious handle the stress of a social situation.
Repression: when a feeling is hidden and forced from the consciousness to the unconscious because it is seen as socially unacceptable.
Regression: falling back into an early state of mental/physical development seen as “less demanding and safer”
Projection: possessing a feeling that is deigned as socially unacceptable and instead of facing it, that feeling or “unconscious urge” is seen in the actions of other people
Reaction formation: acting the opposite way that the unconscious instructs a person to behave, “often exaggerated and obsessive.” (i.e. If a wife is infatuated with a man who is not her husband, reaction formation will cause her to – rather than cheat – become obsessed with showing her husband signs of love and affection.)
Sublimation: seen as the most acceptable of the mechanisms, an expression of anxiety in socially acceptable ways
BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER
Otto F. Kernberg (1967) developed a theory of borderline personality organization of which one consequence may be borderline personality disorder. His theory is based on ego psychological object relations theory. Borderline personality organization develops when the child cannot integrate positive and negative mental objects together.
Kernberg views the use of primitive defence mechanisms as central to this personality organization. Primitive psychological defences are projection, denial, dissociation or splitting and they are called borderline defence mechanisms. Also, devaluation and projective identification are seen as borderline defences.
PATHOLOGICAL, IMMATURE, AND NEUROTIC DEFENSES INTRODUCTION
Robert Plutchik‘s (1979) theory views defences as derivatives of basic emotions, which in turn relate to particular diagnostic structures. According to his theory, reaction formation relates to joy (and manic features), denial relates to acceptance (and histrionic features), repression to fear (and passivity), regression to surprise (and borderline traits), compensation to sadness (and depression), projection to disgust (and paranoia), displacement to anger (and hostility) and intellectualization to anticipation (and obsessionality).
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) published by the American Psychiatric Association (1994) includes a tentative diagnostic axis for defence mechanisms.This classification is largely based on Vaillant’s hierarchical view of defences, but has some modifications. Examples include: denial, fantasy, rationalization, regression, isolation, projection, and displacement.
Level IV – mature defences (humour, sublimation, suppression, altruism, anticipation)
Level 1: Pathological
The mechanisms on this level, when predominating, almost always are severely pathological. These six defences, in conjunction, permit one to effectively rearrange external experiences to eliminate the need to cope with reality.
The pathological users of these mechanisms frequently appear irrational or insane to others. These are the “psychotic” defences, common in overt psychosis. However, they are normally found in dreams and throughout childhood as well.They include:
Conversion: The expression of an intrapsychic conflict as a physical symptom; some examples include blindness, deafness, paralysis, or numbness. This phenomena is sometimes called hysteria.
Denial: Refusal to accept external reality because it is too threatening; arguing against an anxiety-provoking stimulus by stating it doesn’t exist; resolution of emotional conflict and reduction of anxiety by refusing to perceive or consciously acknowledge the more unpleasant aspects of external reality.
Distortion: A gross reshaping of external reality to meet internal needs.
Splitting: A primitive defence. Negative and positive impulses are split off and unintegrated, frequently projected onto someone else. The defended individual segregates experiences into all-good and all-bad categories, with no room for ambiguity and ambivalence. When “splitting” is combined with “projecting”, the negative qualities that you unconsciously perceive yourself as possessing, you consciously attribute to another.
Extreme projection: The blatant denial of a moral or psychological deficiency, which is perceived as a deficiency in another individual or group.
Superiority complex: A psychological defence mechanism in which a person’s feelings of superiority counter or conceal his or her feelings of inferiority. The inflated feelings of being superior, above the ordinary, and special, along with arrogance lead to difficulties at work and in relationships.
Inferiority complex: A behaviour that is displayed through a lack of self-worth, an increase of doubt and uncertainty, and feeling of not measuring up to society’s standards. Despotic control is a compensation for tremendous feelings of inferiority, unworthiness, self-rejection and often feeling unlovable.
Level 2: Immature
These mechanisms are often present in adults. These mechanisms lessen distress and anxiety produced by threatening people or by an uncomfortable reality. Excessive use of such defences is seen as socially undesirable, in that they are immature, difficult to deal with and seriously out of touch with reality.
These are the so-called “immature” defences and overuse almost always leads to serious problems in a person’s ability to cope effectively. These defences are often seen in major depression and personality disorders. They include:
Acting out: Direct expression of an unconscious wish or impulse in action, without conscious awareness of the emotion that drives that expressive behavior. (AGRP: McCarthyism, building nuclear weapons, drone attacks, assassinations, deny global warming and attacking outside of nuclear industry scientists.)
Fantasy: Tendency to retreat into fantasy in order to resolve inner and outer conflicts. (AGRP: nuclear weapons and technology will solve all problems in society.)
Wishful thinking: Making decisions according to what might be pleasing to imagine instead of by appealing to evidence, rationality, or reality.
Idealization: Tending to perceive another individual as having more positive qualities than he or she may actually have.
Projection: A primitive form of paranoia. Projection reduces anxiety by allowing the expression of the undesirable impulses or desires without becoming consciously aware of them; attributing one’s own unacknowledged unacceptable or unwanted thoughts and emotions to another; includes severe prejudice and jealousy, hypervigilance to external danger, and “injustice collecting”, all with the aim of shifting one’s unacceptable thoughts, feelings and impulses onto someone else, such that those same thoughts, feelings, beliefs and motivations are perceived as being possessed by the other. (AGRP: blaming victims via radiophobia, fear of Communism creates need to build 40,000 nuclear weapons, fear of anyone different triggers buying weapons.)
These mechanisms are considered neurotic, but fairly common in adults. Such defences have short-term advantages in coping, but can often cause long-term problems in relationships, work and in enjoying life when used as one’s primary style of coping with the world. They include:
Displacement: defence mechanism that shifts sexual or aggressive impulses to a more acceptable or less threatening target; redirecting emotion to a safer outlet;separation of emotion from its real object and redirection of the intense emotion toward someone or something that is less offensive or threatening in order to avoid dealing directly with what is frightening or threatening. For example, a mother may yell at her child because she is angry with her husband. (AGRP; a nation may build nuclear bombs, due to fear of ‘Communism’)
Dissociation: Temporary drastic modification of one’s personal identity or character to avoid emotional distress; separation or postponement of a feeling that normally would accompany a situation or thought.
Hypochondriasis: An excessive preoccupation or worry about having a serious illness.
Intellectualization: A form of isolation; concentrating on the intellectual components of a situation so as to distance oneself from the associated anxiety-provoking emotions; separation of emotion from ideas; thinking about wishes in formal, affectively bland terms and not acting on them; avoiding unacceptable emotions by focusing on the intellectual aspects (isolation, rationalization, ritual, undoing, compensation, and magical thinking).
Isolation: Separation of feelings from ideas and events, for example, describing a murder with graphic details with no emotional response.
Rationalization (making excuses): Convincing oneself that no wrong has been done and that all is or was all right through faulty and false reasoning. An indicator of this defence mechanism can be seen socially as the formulation of convenient excuses.
Reaction formation: Converting unconscious wishes or impulses that are perceived to be dangerous or unacceptable into their opposites; behaviour that is completely the opposite of what one really wants or feels; taking the opposite belief because the true belief causes anxiety.
Regression: Temporary reversion of the ego to an earlier stage of development rather than handling unacceptable impulses in a more adult way, for example, using whining as a method of communicating despite already having acquired the ability to speak with appropriate grammar.
Repression: The process of attempting to repel desires towards pleasurable instincts, caused by a threat of suffering if the desire is satisfied; the desire is moved to the unconscious in the attempt to prevent it from entering consciousness;seemingly unexplainable naivety, memory lapse or lack of awareness of one’s own situation and condition; the emotion is conscious, but the idea behind it is absent.
Undoing: A person tries to ‘undo’ an unhealthy, destructive or otherwise threatening thought by acting out the reverse of the unacceptable. Involves symbolically nullifying an unacceptable or guilt provoking thought, idea, or feeling by confession or atonement. (Catholic and other religion’s confession booth; a person will confess on Sunday, but then go ahead and keep right on committing murder or genocide, because of God’s will and forgiveness.)
Withdrawal: Withdrawal is a more severe form of defence. It entails removing oneself from events, stimuli, and interactions under the threat of being reminded of painful thoughts and feelings. (AGRP; many people will not talk about any subject that is emotionally difficult, including war, nuclear weapons, nuclear power, nuclear accidents, genocide, etc. They will walk away from you if you bring up the subject.)
Upward and downward social comparisons: A defensive tendency that is used as a means of self-evaluation. Individuals will look to another individual or comparison group who are considered to be worse off in order to dissociate themselves from perceived similarities and to make themselves feel better about themselves or their personal situation.
Level 4: Mature
These are commonly found among emotionally healthy adults and are considered mature, even though many have their origins in an immature stage of development. They have been adapted through the years in order to optimise success in human society and relationships. The use of these defences enhances pleasure and feelings of control. These defences help to integrate conflicting emotions and thoughts, whilst still remaining effective. Those who use these mechanisms are usually considered virtuous. Mature defences include:
Moderation: The process of eliminating or lessening extremes and staying within reasonable limits. It necessitates self-restraint which is imposed by oneself on one’s own feelings, desires etc.
Patience: The level of endurance under difficult circumstances (delay, provocation, criticism, attack etc.) one can take before negativity. Patience is a recognized virtue in every religion.
Courage: The mental ability and willingness to confront conflicts, fear, pain, danger, uncertainty, despair, obstacles, vicissitudes or intimidation. Physical courage often extends lives, while moral courage preserves the ideals of justice and fairness.
Humility: A mechanism by which a person, considering their own defects, has a humble self-opinion. Humility is intelligent self-respect which keeps one from thinking too highly or too meanly of oneself.
Mindfulness: Adopting a particular orientation toward one’s experiences in the present moment, an orientation that is characterised by curiosity, openness, and acceptance.
Acceptance: A person’s assent to the reality of a situation, recognizing a process or condition (often a negative or uncomfortable situation) without attempting to change it, protest, or exit. Religions and psychological treatments often suggest the path of acceptance when a situation is both disliked and unchangeable, or when change may be possible only at great cost or risk.
Gratitude: A feeling of thankfulness or appreciation involving appreciation of a wide range of people and events. Gratitude is likely to bring higher levels of happiness, and lower levels of depression and stress. Throughout history, gratitude has been given a central position in religious and philosophical theories.
Altruism: Constructive (selfless) service to others that brings pleasure and personal satisfaction.
Tolerance: The practice of deliberately allowing or permitting a thing of which one disapproves.
Mercy: Compassionate behavior on the part of those in power.
Forgiveness: Cessation of resentment, indignation or anger as a result of a perceived offence, disagreement, or mistake, or ceasing to demand retribution or restitution.
Humour: Overt expression of ideas and feelings (especially those that are unpleasant to focus on or too terrible to talk about directly) that gives pleasure to others. The thoughts retain a portion of their innate distress, but they are “skirted around” by witticism, for example self-deprecation. (Gallows humor is another form of this.)
Identification: The unconscious modelling of one’s self upon another person’s character and behaviour.
Introjection: Identifying with some idea or object so deeply that it becomes a part of that person.
Sublimation: Transformation of negative emotions or instincts into positive actions, behaviours, or emotions, for example, playing a heavy contact sport such as football or rugby can transform aggression into a game.
Thought suppression: The conscious process of pushing thoughts into the preconscious; the conscious decision to delay paying attention to an emotion or need in order to cope with the present reality; making it possible to later access uncomfortable or distressing emotions whilst accepting them.
Emotional self-regulation: The ability to respond to the ongoing demands of experience with the range of emotions in a manner that is socially tolerable. Emotional self-regulation refers to the processes people use to modify the type, intensity, duration, or expression of various emotions.
Wikipedia; “Projective identification may take place with varying degrees of intensity. In narcissism, extremely powerful projections may take place and obliterate the distinction between self and other. In less disturbed personalities, projective identification is not only a way of getting rid of feelings but also of getting help with them.
Relationship problems have been linked to the way there can be a division of emotional labour in a couple, by way of projective identification, with one partner carrying projected aspects of the other for them. Thus one partner may carry all the aggression or all the competence in the relationship, the other all the vulnerability.
Fear and projection can stop a person from being their best, and accomplishing their best. Fear and projection of that fear onto others may also block people from seeing reality as it really is.
PROJECTION IN WAR AND ARMAGEDDON
Projection of one’s worst fears is more often than not the root cause of wars and violence. Combine projection with, racism, xenophobia, greed and lust for power and the result is a huge pull as well as push towards war in any given country. Genocide, torture and extreme cruelty is very often found in association with projection, sociopathy and racism.
The fear of Communism, and all of the associated projections that come out of that resulted in the formation of the CIA. The CIA is in charge of ‘legal’ assassinations, illegal medical experiments, wars, torture, and censorship, just to name a few of the many things that they are ‘sanctioned’ and given permission to do, all of it in secret of course. The results of projection and actions based on fear as the primary motive, have negative consequences, as outlined by the following articles…
By adding religious justification that God favors one side over the other and demonizing the perceived enemy for whatever reasons, (see favorite version of specific religion’s Holy Book), religion has been used as a well worn path towards not just war, but also justification for Armageddon in the future, as a positive thing. Each Holy Book justifies demonizing the enemy, (via projection), and thus also gives permission to destroy the enemy and send them to Hell, via genocide and/or Armageddon.
Bill Mayer asks some important questions that anyone in a religion should think about. Those questions are available in the movie Religulous; available at link below…
Many religions have a part of the Holy Book that seems to justify Armageddon in order to hurry up the return of whatever Holy Person is being utilitized in whatever Holy Book. Almost every religion has a projection aspect that can be used.
Since the written word justifies that anyone who does not believe as ‘we’ do, deserves to be killed and wiped out down to the last person, which is also a form of projection. The Holy Book also projects fear and demonization onto anyone who dares to disbelieve or cast doubt on the leaders, to the point where witches are burned, dissenters are either cast out or killed, and disbelievers are ‘the enemy’, deserving of death and eternal Hell. For more details about projection in Old Testament for example, click on the following links…
HOW AND WHY PROJECTION IS BUILT INTO THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY
The nuclear industry grew out of World War II, and the first nuclear engineers in the US were hired by the CIA, as part of Operation Paperclip. The Nazis were projecting their worst fears onto the Jews and other ‘undesirables’. Instead of dealing with their unconscious fears and the projections of those fears onto others, they decided to do mass exterminations and world war.
After they lost the war, the CIA hired these Class A Nazi war criminals to start the nuclear bomb program in the US, Japan (Unit 731) and gave away free uranium plus nuclear power plants to other countries. The end result was the building of 400 plus nuclear power plants that would produce the ‘fuel’ for their nuclear bombs.
Then those same scientists had to ‘experiment’ on a couple of cities, to test the nuclear bombs out of course, and to put fear into the Communists, who the US feared even more than the Nazis or the Japanese. Over 2,400 of these nuclear bombs were also set off globally, to ‘test’ them.
In the process of fearing the Communists and then projecting that fear out into the Cold War, which resulted in a massive buildup of nuclear weapons, and the buildup of a permanent army and the military industrial complex, plus the CIA, nuclear weapons become God.
Since fear of Communists was paramount, all opposition to this fear had to be eliminated. This resulted in projection, which then turned into the McCarthy trials, the Unit 731 experiments, supporting sociopathic Class A war criminals, and a massive global propaganda campaign, with the CIA in charge of it. Projection resulted in the takeover of the media by the CIA and huge globalist corporations, with the profit motive combining with unconscious fears of a perceived ‘enemy’.
The negative consequence of fear and the projection of it, is what appears on TV or the mass media. TV is not reality, but consists more of a projection of all unconscious fears, the short term profit motive (greed) and the lust for unconditional power.
God can have no faults. At the beginning of the age of fission, anything to do with nuclear or radiation was made into God. God can have no spots or blemish. Radiation was seen via the hormesis theory as being the cure for all diseases and the answer for all problems, which fits with the idea of the power of fission being God.
God via fission has to continue projecting out into the world, much like an evangalist tries to convert everyone to a particular religion. All radiation is holy and good, so that belief system has to expand and everyone has to agree and be converted to this belief system. In turn, this meant the mass media had to be completely controlled and censored, since anything anti God (anti nuclear) was blasphemy and heresy. Anyone not believing this dogma is attacked personally and crucified in public via the mass media.
Whistleblowers pointing out how this cultish nuclear club is not what it appears to be is also attacked, smeared and demeaned. Anyone daring to be a critic inside the cult is immediately fired and can no longer work inside the industry, for daring to be a heretic and calling into question the belief system inside the nuclear religion.
This ‘theory’ of God projected via unconscious fear into nuclear everything, meant that people suffering from radiation poisoning also had to be blamed, because radiation is good for everyone. God knows of course, that radiation from nuclear power plants and nuclear bombs cannot harm or kill. God needs sacrifices when projection is involved in this blinded nuclear belief system that acts more like a religion than it does science. As a result, millions of victims had to be sacrificed to the nuclear God of fission.
Covering up and denying the shame, guilt and doubts about deadly nuclear radiation and killing tens of thousands to millions of people via nuclear contamination, open air bomb tests and more, meant that projections had to appear. Thus, radiophobia was born as a syndrome, disorder or sickness.
Anyone who did not believe that radiation was healthy and good for you, had to be punished by God of course, via the label of radiophobia. The wrath of an angry and jealous God projected out via the unconscious fear, shame and guilt experienced by those in the nuclear industry, to form the ‘blaming the victim’ syndrome of Radiophobia.
Fear itself became a ‘disease’ which was to blame for all illnesses and deaths around nuclear accidents, DU weapons, spills and open air bomb testing sites.
Part of this dogmatic and very religious belief system that is now DEEPLY ingrained inside the nuclear industry and education system also meant that no matter how bad the nuclear accident, no one ever died or got sick from the radiation, because that is contrary to the God belief system inside the nuclear industry.
God cannot punish people via radiation, as all radiation is good and holy, and thus cannot kill or harm anyone. Dutifully, all of the priests of this religions pronounce on the CIA controlled and censored mass media, that no deaths resulted from Fukushima, as one example of how this unconscious projection manifests.
This projection and splitting off from reality means that at least some of the participants became sociopaths. At the very least, normalcy bias and numbing was used by the nuclear industry to convince people that radiation cannot do harm, no matter what.
But being a sociopath inside the CIA or the nuclear industry is easy, because that is how these organizations got started in the first place, via hiring sociopaths. Only sociopaths can operate in this environment of killing and murdering people on a wholesale basis, without a second thought, while blaming the victims of it for all of the harm being done. Thus, projection and sociopathy is deeply embedded inside of the military and nuclear industrial complex, which are married together into one seamless, global unit.
Via CodeShutdown October 17, 2014 The nuclear industry apologists deny “any relationship of nuclear waste and fallout to negative consequence, illness, and death. It’s criminal to force poison down your throat and then use some flippant rhetoric like “coincidence is not proof of causation” How do they debunk Mangano’s epidemiology? “Any link between the deaths and the radiation released by the reactors is “very, very unlikely” simply because the levels are low, according to Richard Morin, PhD, of the Mayo Clinic” and “coincidence is not proof of causation”; nonsense words of the highest order!
First of all, how would Mr Morin, the great debunker know what the fallout levels are since, according to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, “No U.S. government or international agency is monitoring the spread of low levels of radiation from Fukushima along the West Coast of North America and around the Hawaiian Islands.” Low level? Quantify please, its only scientific!
The radioisotope used to kill Alexander Litvinenko is extraordinarily toxic even in quantities less than a billionth of a gram. The Maximum Contaminant Level allowed by EPA for alpha particle activity is 15 pCi/l (0.555 becquerel/l) in drinking water. In fact this level was exceeded in milk and rain water. So what are these debunkers so handily doing? Lying! Take your choice; they’re ignorant and not deserving of their professional titles, or they are lying criminals.”
The question to ask is; will this marriage created in sociopathy result in good things happening in the future, for your kids, and their kids, and for seven future generations? There is a choice available after all. There is plenty of zero carbon, zero nuclear energy available all over the world.
