Total View episode: How Fear is Used to Turn You Against Spirituality


In the first episode shot from the new Mystical Life Publications office, host Jenny Haase interviews David Gardner, investigative journalist for The Conscious Reporter about his article How Fear is Used to Turn You Against Spirituality. It examines the use of social engineering and manipulation through the mainstream media to make the general public fear spirituality. David presents his research into the tactics that have been used to turn people against spiritual groups; and says that by seeing them, people can begin to break free of the subconsciously programmed cycle of fear and wake other people up to it as well.

    Speak Your Mind


  1. Thanks for this interview – since becoming more aware of the subtle ways spiritual groups are fear moungered against, I have literally seen it everywhere. It’s dropped into films as really needless sub-stories, and people bandy the word cult around in conversation so carelessly. It will be hard to find a way to challange these attitudes well, but I will work on it, as I see it is causing so much damage.

  2. Great interview. Thanks so much David and Jenny for this episode. You have struck some very important chords that the masses need to know about.

    I hope this reaches far & wide and helps put an end to the dellusion.

  3. Well researched Dave spot on and information that is important for people to be aware of, I hope people start to become aware of how we are being manipulated

  4. Thanks David G and Total View for breaking down this important topic so well. I can see this interview being of benefit to all NRM’s so hopefully it can gain a wide audience and help to break through the false paradigm of the social engineering that has been going on.

  5. Nice synthesis, thanks for that. Looks like I’ll have to grow one of those new trendy beards if I want to become an investigative journalist 😉

    Seriously though a very important but horrible topic. I am amazed sometimes at how very intellectual scientific people can experiment on animals and humans without any kind of empathy or conscience. Experiments with electric shock to wipe a brain clean of memory and reprogram it, are just some of the horrors … The real culprits of such psychopathic behavior are often those pointing the finger at innocent scapegoats like NRM’s.

    • I agree. It’s shocking to see what has been allowed and what has been done in the name of ‘science’.

    • Yeah, that is really disturbing, Shane. “When you point a finger, there’s three pointing back” seems to apply well here — the very people/organizations behind this cult scare craze are also the ones who orchestrated so much of the criminal “cult” activities that are now used as propaganda against small religious minorities and alternative spirituality (not to mention the darker and scarier experiments and conditioning done on people by these organizations/individuals…). We are totally surrounded by the conditioning instilled by these very people, and through that conditioning continue to perpetuate this fear of spirituality. What a mess! Good to see this topic get out there. Thanks a lot for the article and interview, David and Total View!

  6. Great episode, thanks.

  7. Great episode, great topic and very well explained thanks David. Also, I really appreciate your research into this topic.

    Humanity being conditioned to fear spirituality is a serious concern, especially when you look around our world today, not to forget the history of mankind.

    I’ve experienced tactics used to create fear against my spiritual group which included manipulation through the mainstream media, to be falsely accused is a terrible place to be and therefore I really understand the need to stand up for religious freedom.

    Thanks David, Jenny and everyone behind the scene, very important episode.
