Betrayal All the Way Down (Part 1)


Diane Perlman | TRANSCEND Media Service

I begin, “Everyone on the planet has been betrayed on some level” … but first


Whether we deal with our powerful, universal experience of betrayal consciously or unconsciously will literally make all of the difference in the world. It is critical that we take an enlightened approach to get this one right. Here I attempt a comprehensive, coherent and constructive analysis to guide us towards intentional, wisely designed strategies and processes, informed by social science, conflict analysis, psychology and history.

I used to be a licensed clinical psychologist with a practice in individual, couple, family therapy, Jungian analysis and psychoneuroimmunology, with interests in political psychology, and conflict transformation. I coined “Reparology™” – towards a social science of repair.  “Reparative justice,” is more precise than “restorative justice” because we need to transcend rather than restore conditions that allowed such destruction.

Now we need what I call “POLITICAL THERAPY” – like family therapy only bigger, but no one is making an appointment.

Many countries and cultures, ancient and modern, have evolved public processes, tribunals, and truth commissions, using techniques and rituals to emerge from periods of collective trauma to constructively address pain, trauma and conflicts. South Africa’s Truth & Reconciliation Commission (TRC), among others, was designed to prevent a bloodbath at the end of apartheid.

In part 2 I will present a formula, with elements common to all processes, adapted to this one to help us process this prolonged, multifaceted, global trauma.

I hope this can lead to organizing a graceful way out towards a softer landing and a best-case scenario to support the building of a new, healthy society.

In part 2 I will present a formula, with elements common to all processes, adapted to this one, informed by social science to help us process this prolonged, multifaceted, global trauma.

Mello Trust And Betrayal – How To Destroy, Take Over And Transform The Society When No One is Watching, a brilliant article. I took some quotes from it

If you don’t wish to read so much, you can skim through headlines, lists and illustrations to get the idea.

Here is a table of contents so you know where this is going.

CATEGORES OF BETRAYAL: A Growing List (including almost everybody on the planet)



Betrayal All the Way Down

Everyone on the planet has been betrayed on some level, except for known and unknown prime movers, masterminds, puppeteers, and super perpetrators of the Covid Pandemic, Great Reset, and more.

(Edit note, 11/17. I just spoke with Vera Sharav who reminded that the Prime Movers, Puppeteers are betraying each other – so I stand corrected, everyone is being betrayed).

The cascade of betrayal, flowing from the top down, has washed over all of us. Many who believe the highly crafted official narrative, mystified by a plausible misrepresentation of reality, are not yet aware that they have been betrayed.

Those who directly and personally betrayed us have been lied to, manipulated, brainwashed, and otherwise betrayed themselves. Some believed they were saving lives. Many were frightened to death. Some became aware but feared devastating consequences, witnessing punishment of all who spoke the truth.

    RE “Everyone on the planet has been betrayed on some level” and “The cascade of betrayal, flowing from the top down, has washed over all of us”

    As a typical “expert” of the whitewashing BIASED alternative media, Perlman, pushes (as she’s done prior) the misdirecting false victim narrative which goes like this — the problem is the people at the top, the public is just a victim of their schemes, the bogus equation of the criminal shadow government vs. the innocent public. In that FALSE equation it is just a matter of “draining the swamp” at the top and we’re back to our former (“healthy”=destructive) “normal.” This fake narrative or fantasy is, of course, appealing to the masses, removing their culpability in the many past and present atrocities committed by “homo sapiens.” It’s why the “experts” disseminating this fantasy become popular and influential…

    “All experts serve the state and the media and only in that way do they achieve their status. Every expert follows his master, for all former possibilities for independence have been gradually reduced to nil by present society’s mode of organization. The most useful expert, of course, is the one who can lie. With their different motives, those who need experts are falsifiers and fools. Whenever individuals lose the capacity to see things for themselves, the expert is there to offer an absolute reassurance.” —Guy Debord

    But … the fact that evil people rule is only ONE part of the equation. There are 2 pink elephants in the room and they are MARRIED — “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon”” …

    A reality-based, instead of a fantasy-based, understanding of the world we live in would make apparent that “the cascade of betrayal” is not just “flowing from the top down” but ALSO “flowing from to bottom up” in an intertwined loop … again, there are 2 pink elephants in the room and they are MARRIED.
