The Hagmann & Hagmann Report 01.05.2017 – Optical Dissonance and Fake News Deception

By Jon Robberson – Producer: Hagmann & Hagmann Report

Optical dissonance is defined in Webster’s Dictionary as…nothing.

That is because I made it up last night.  As the two words imply, optical dissonance is the visual nephew of cognitive dissonance.  It’s a Robbersonism for “Did you see that?!”, followed by “I’m not sure I buy this.”

In all seriousness optical dissonance is the disconnect between what you are looking at versus what you are seeing.

I submit the following two hypotheses:
often it is within this disconnect that the truth of a story lies and secondly, you as a citizen with a smart phone are well armed to smash optical dissonance and thus pulverize fake news.

Since that early April day in 2014 when the entire awakened world watched legally armed citizens in cowboy hats and blue jeans stand their ground against dubious Federal Agents just a few hundred yards off of Highway 15 in Bunkerville, Nevada, we have been pummeled with and scrambled by strange footage, or in modern parlance, optics.

The Cult Of Expertise And Neo-Feudalism


We are told to trust the experts. They know what is right. They know what is best. We would all be better off if we would all just outsource our decision making and follow their advice, suggestions, and commands. Those who don’t obey the experts are the ones who are making things difficult for the rest of us. If only we could get rid of those pesky fools who won’t listen to the experts then all of our problems would be solved. After all, the experts know how to solve all our problems. They told us they do. Not only that: they’re experts! Surely we don’t want to go against the experts. They’re much smarter than we are. Wouldn’t it be so much simpler if we all just went along with the program?

Here at The Amateur Society we have no overarching gripe against experts generally as a category of people. When I needed reconstructive foot surgery as a child I went to an expert. The medical field provides us with any number of areas where expertise is fundamentally necessary. More broadly speaking, we are always reliant upon others who have more developed skills than we do in various areas. If you can guarantee that you are 100% self-reliant in all current and potential future scenarios, then drop me a line. I’d be thrilled to learn from your experience and abilities!

What I vigorously object to is what I call the cult of expertise.

Soaring Eagle Radio Episode 60 – Patrick Wood – The Cult of Social Justice


Check out the link below for another fantastic episode of Soaring Eagle Radio Soaring Eagle Radio with Pastor Mike Spaulding of Calvary Chapel of Lima, Ohio. Follow the links to listen to and view more material from Pastor Mike including on YouTube here.


America is at war and I don’t mean the wars in the Middle East or anywhere else in the world. The war America is involved in has been waged since the 1930’s. Unfortunately this war has gone largely unnoticed by the average American until recently, when the results of the strategies and methods of the enemies of America have become visible in America’s cities and college campuses.

This enemy has a name – Cultural Marxism. Most Americans know it by another name – Political Correctness. One strategy employed by the haters of America and our freedoms and liberties is to deceive and brainwash people with the subversive idea of social justice.

Returning to SER to discuss “The Pseudo-Ethics of Social Justice in Economics, Politics, and Religion” is author and researcher Patrick Wood.
