The Vaccine Passport and the Dynamics of Domination
Diane Perlman –TRANSCEND Media Service, 12 Apr 2021

These lucrative, patented, experimental synthetic gene injectables are not technically vaccines. I call them VINOs – “Vaccines in Name Only.” Those who opt out of this unapproved experiment are demonized and pathologized as threats to humanity. Coercive VPP’s are promoted by Big Tech and Big Pharma, not health providers.

18 Years Ago: Emergency Warning against the US Invasion of Iraq
Diane Perlman | Medium - TRANSCEND Media Service, 22 Mar 2021

19 Mar 2021 – The March 19, 2003 US led invasion of Iraq was cataclysmic. I cried. In the months before I had done everything in my power to try to prevent it, but it was a done deal. I felt like I was watching Romeo and Juliet and trying to warn them not to take the poison.

My Win-Win Solution for Prince Harry and the Royal Family
Diane Perlman | Medium - TRANSCEND Media Service, 15 Mar 2021

11 Mar 2021 – Being born into or marrying into a Royal Family thrusts one into a double bind. Double bind theory regards the dilemma of being confronted with conflicting, irreconcilable demands — one negating the other. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. One can neither resolve the dilemma nor opt out of the situation.

A Deeper Look At CPAC: Disdain Will Get Us Nowhere
Diane Perlman, PhD | Medium - TRANSCEND Media Service, 8 Mar 2021

Analysis and Photo Essay – Moral outrage and mutual disparagement have devolved into a national sport. Tweets and opinion pieces make valid points criticizing the Conservative Political Action Conference for remaining a party of Trump, being a dangerous, fascistic, racist, white supremacist, golden calf-worshipping cult, using Nazi symbolism on their Odal Rune shaped stage, etc. I don’t entirely disagree.

President Biden, Our Commander in Grief
Diane Perlman, PhD | Medium - TRANSCEND Media Service, 1 Mar 2021

24  Feb 2021 – I may not love everything Joe Biden does, but I love that he held two public ceremonies to remember and mourn US Covid deaths on January 19 and February 22, marking 500,000 deaths. I doubt whether Biden was adequately appreciated for the emotional brilliance, depth of meaning and healing power of these rituals.

Is Transcendence Emerging from Trump’s Impeachment?
Diane Perlman, PhD – TRANSCEND Media Service, 22 Feb 2021

The storming of the US Capitol on Jan 6 was a wake-up call. Several Republicans changed their votes and certified Biden. This bubble-bursting moment separated “the men from the boys.” Johan Galtung always said he hates the US empire but loves the US republic. May we in the US emerge from this averted coup as the republic that he envisioned.

Abracadabraism™: Not Exactly Lying
Diane Perlman | Medium – TRANSCEND Media Service, 15 Feb 2021

“Abracadabra,” the magicians’ incantation, is derived from Aramaic and/or Hebrew. “Abra” means “I will create.” “C’dabra” means “as I speak,” as in “God said, ‘Let there be light! And there was light.’” (Genesis 1:3). I think Trump is trying to create reality with his words.

(Italiano) Psico-Covidologia: Indurre all’impotenza e allo sfruttamento della paura
Diane Perlman, Ph.D. | Centro Studi Sereno Regis - TRANSCEND Media Service, 1 Feb 2021

La paura è nell’aria. Legittimare preoccupazioni sulla morte e sulla malattia può faciltare gli interessi politici e finanziari con la disinformazione, ma anche con censura, capri espiatori, supervisione, manipolando paura e abuso di potere. Le paure possono essere ben fondate o esagerate, minimizzate o negate. Inoltre, noi giudichiamo il livello di paura di chiunque altro come troppo, non abbastanza, o assurdo rispetto al nostro.

Psycho-Covidology: Induced Helplessness and the Exploitation of Fear
Diane Perlman, PhD - TRANSCEND Media Service, 4 Jan 2021

We don’t know the actual death rate because the CDC combines death rates from pneumonia, influenza and COVID-19 (PIC). Doctors report that they are instructed to list people dying from other causes, some with Covid-19 as dying from Covid-19. “Probably never before in history has anything or any event mixed fact, fiction, fear, and confusion like the COVID-19 pandemic.” – Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD

18 Dec 2020 – Open Letter to DC Mayor Muriel Bowser. I have grave concerns about the physical and psychological dangers of Bill B23–0171.3, the Minor Vaccine Consent Bill, which permits children 11 and older to consent to vaccines without their parents’ knowledge or consent.

Diane Perlman, Ph.D. – TRANSCEND Media Service, 23 Nov 2020

A civil war is brewing in the US as Trump’s unprecedented assaults on democracy set landmines yet to explode. How did we get to this point of the pathological splitting of the opposites? What does the Transcend Method offer us now?

Can Dems Be Part of the Solution at AIPAC?
Diane Perlman | Medium – TRANSCEND Media Service, 24 Feb 2020

23 Feb 2020 – A coalition of progressive organizations is pressuring Democratic candidates to boycott the AIPAC-American Israel Public Affairs Committee Conference in Washington, March 1–3, 2020. Skipping AIPAC would be a huge mistake and a loss for the candidates, the party, our democracy, and AIPAC.

Diane Perlman – TRANSCEND Media Service, 13 Jan 2020

Is there a way to create a new reality that addresses the interests of major parties? The TRANSCEND Method is based on the central thesis that to prevent violence and develop the creative potential of a conflict, there has to be transformation. Normal conflicts are complex and involve many actors, goals and issues.

The Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty: Primary Conflicts and Second Order Change
Diane Perlman, Ph.D. – TRANSCEND Media Service, 27 May 2019

After almost 50 years, the NPT boasts partial success with horizontal proliferation as we only have four new Nuclear Weapons States: India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea–not parties to the NPT. However, all NWS are engaged in vertical proliferation with nuclear modernization programs triggering a new nuclear arms race without the benefit of arms control arrangements.

Diane Perlman, PhD – TRANSCEND Media Service, 2 Jul 2018

Diane Perlman | Centro Studi Sereno Regis – TRANSCEND Media Service, 16 Oct 2017

9 ottobre 2017 – Sorprendentemente pochi sanno dello storico evento all’ONU – New York del 7 luglio 2017. È stato approvato da 122 stati un Trattato di Proibizione delle Armi Nucleari. Tutti gli stati con capacità nucleare militare, i loro alleati e gran parte dei membri NATO hanno boicottato i negoziati per la bozza del Trattato di Esclusione.

North Korea: Quantum Politics, the TRANSCEND Method and Second Order Change
Diane Perlman, Ph.D. – TRANSCEND Media Service, 9 Oct 2017

Dominant thought forms shape thinking and feeling in ways that limit ideas about what is possible. We need words, frames, concepts and categories that allow us to imagine transformative solutions. The most experienced, mature, and wise people recommend beginning with a policy of “Freeze for freeze” whereby the US and South Korea stop joint military exercises in exchange of NK’s halting testing. This reduces tension, fear and humiliation, a face-saving way out and creates a field for dialogue and to apply the TRANSCEND method.

Transcending Nukes
Diane Perlman, Ph.D. – TRANSCEND Media Service, 2 Oct 2017

Surprisingly few people know about the historic event at the UN on 7 July 2017. A Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons was approved by 122 member states. On 20 September the treaty opened for signatures and so far 53 countries have signed and three have ratified it – the Holy See, Guyana and Thailand. The treaty becomes international law 90 days after 50 states ratify it. The hard work begins now, and the TRANSCEND community has a specific and necessary contribution to make.

I am post-partisan and outside the boxes. Your outside-the-box tendencies and pragmatic business skills can enable you to transcend incompatible contrived categories which impede deep understanding, enlightened policies and capacity for progress. As a political psychologist interested in reversing cycles of violence and retaliation, I can envision this possibility.

The NPT and the Nuclear Power TRAP
Diane Perlman, PhD – TRANSCEND Media Service, 31 May 2010

For 40 years, there is virtual, unquestioned acceptance of nuclear energy, with frequent and automatic repetition of the mantras –the “inalienable right” to “peaceful uses” of nuclear energy, the “the third pillar” throughout the speeches. The belief in nuclear power is so deeply and widely held that it may seem outrageous to even question it.
