All It Takes is 5 Monkeys and the Cancel Culture is Empowered

“Comrade, my comment is factually correct.”
“Yes, but it is not politically correct, so you may not say it.”
– Old Soviet saying.

Wondering how Cancel Culture spread so quickly? The “5 Monkeys” experiment pulls back the curtain to see the tactics used by the Leftist Elites, the Campus Woke Mafia, and the Biden of Oz. These are the mechanics of Cancel Culture, as summarized by Terrence O’Hanlon.

  • Start with a cage with 5 monkeys and a banana suspended by a string at the top of a ladder.
  • Each time a monkey ascends the ladder, spray the other monkeys with cold water.
  • The group of monkeys learns to attack the one monkey climbing for the banana, in order to avoid the cold-water spray.
  • Replace one monkey. Stop the cold-water treatment. The new monkey will try to climb the ladder. The other monkeys attack him.
  • Replace a second monkey. When the second new monkey goes for the banana, all other monkeys, including the first replacement monkey, will attack the banana seeker.
  • Eventually, replace all five monkeys. None of the replacements have ever been sprayed with cold water. Yet all five new monkeys will attack any monkey who goes for the banana, without knowing why!

How To Create A Mentality For New Generations

Can You Say, “Monkey Business?”

Now, in the above example, substitute people for monkeys. Substitute “truth” for bananas. Substitute “lose your job” for cold water. Now you know how Cancel Culture is enforced in America today. Whenever someone wants facts, data, and truth, the Cancel Culture monkeys immediately attack him or her. 

Now you know why… “why” is the number one question to ask, followed by the number two question: “where are the facts and data?”

The Cancel Culture Sequence

  • Fauci: “Wear masks!” 
  • You: “Why?” 
  • Fauci: “Because the science and I say so!”
  • You: “Where is the scientific data to support this?” 
  • Fauci: “Will somebody, please throw cold water on this questioner and get her fired?” 
  • Karen and Karl: “Why?”
  • Fauci: “Because she might spread COVID and everybody will die!” 
  • Karen and Karl: “We will, we will!” Canceled!

Facts and data subsequently show that not everybody dies from Covid.

Fauci and fellow travelers say: “Do what I tell you to do!” You: “Why?” Fauci et al. “Quick! Somebody cancel him!” Karen and Karl: “We will, we will!” You: “Why?” Karen and Karl: “We will, we will!”

A Force Multiplier

The general population has now been conditioned to follow orders and enforce them on others. No Gestapo needed. What a wonderful force multiplier in the service of American totalitarians! Easy and simple to use. Your friends, neighbors, and co-workers enforce the constantly changing decrees of the ruling elite.

The Biden Of Oz

Now we know what is behind the curtain of the all-powerful Biden of Oz. Not flying monkeys, but the “5 monkeys” conditioning techniques. What many of us have suspected all along: the Leftist Elites have been trying to make monkeys of us all.

Michael McCarthy is the author of a dystopian trilogy beginning with The Noah Option. McCarthy regrets that many of his dystopian predictions have already come true in 2022 America. For inspiration on how to roll back the flood of government control, read The Noah Option and the sequels The Rainbow Option and The Timshel Option. 

Michael McCarthy

Michael McCarthy is a life-long student of liberty, limited government, and free-market economics. As a young man, he taught and crewed at the Flint School aboard the 156’ two-masted schooner Te Vega sailing in Europe. Atlas Shrugged was required reading.

In 2010 he saw the acceleration of big government control in politics, business, and culture. Hoping to reach the next generation through fiction entertainment, he wrote the prophetic novel The Noah Option. Powerful politicians target brilliant black scientist Dr. Grace Washington. Her story continues in the sequel, The Rainbow Option, when powerful elites unleash a deadly virus on unsuspecting Americans, and Grace must develop a cure. In The Timshel Option, ISIS invades and creates The New England Caliphate, making women second-class citizens. One teenage girl fights back.

"The things I predicted in my novels came true in the nightly news. Our country is in trouble. Like Abraham Lincoln, I hope for a new birth of freedom,” says McCarthy.

An Immediate Threat to America’s Sovereignty

An Immediate Threat to America’s Sovereignty

Our children and our children’s children and theirs will have no idea how it feels to live in a free society unless we demand that our rule of law and our Constitutional rights be reinstated and that the reckoning comes for the global disaster we have all survived. The next assault on U.S. sovereignty and that of other nations are the treaties proposed by WHO…

Joe Biden Is Right! Trump’s MAGA Movement “Are a Different Breed of Cat”

With no thanks to $1.9 trillion in blowout Democrat spending, America is experiencing four-decade high skyrocketing inflation, now at 8.3% compared with 1.7% inherited from Trump a mere year and a half ago when Biden took office. As for being “a different breed,” that’s a very welcome contrast with disastrous domestic and foreign policies his administration has already foisted…

A Crime’s a Crime! What Makes a Hate Crime so Special? 

A Crime’s a Crime! What Makes a Hate Crime so Special? 

Buffalo and NY State police authorities knew of the teen’s derangement and made some early efforts to corral him, but he still got loose. It’s they who should be held responsible, not Tucker Carlson. Mass shootings have become a common recurrence, it seems. This time last year, we experienced a similar number of mass shootings, on average ten per week. 2021 ended with 693 mass shootings, and there were 417 in 2019. What’s happened?

Mortgage applications to purchase a home dropped 12% on a weekly basis and are down 15% compared with the same week one year ago. The housing bubble will not survive without low interest rates. Neither will the stock market bubble. Fed Chair Jerome Powell told a Wall Street Journal conference that the U.S. central bank will “have to consider moving more aggressively”…

Race-Baiting Is the Name, and Gun-Grabbing Is the Game

Listening to Governor Hochul will leave an outsider to believe that Buffalo, NY, is filled with hatred and a place where there is the extremism of white people against black people, which is far from the truth. There should be crimes against criminal politicians who use isolated tragedies to advance their political platforms that feed into their nefarious agendas…

The Power to Shape the Narrative is the Power to Control the Outcome

Setting up the “Disinformation Board” and rolling it out under the DHS moved the “Overton Window” of conceivable action closer to the Marxist ideal of information control. While they’d have liked to “legitimize” their influence on media companies with edicts from a DHS Board, the ideological alignment of the major media companies is already working steadily to undermine…

The Mastery of Projective Identification

Just listen to Biden gloating that his administration is very successful. Is Biden not the perfect example? All that is going wrong under his watch – although Democrats are the majority in the House and Senate and the Presidency – Joe Biden blames citizen Trump, Putin, or any ‘other’ entity but NOT himself…

Even more shocking is that McCormick and Oz came in paying about $200 per vote received, with Barnette averaging $16 per vote, and she is almost within five percent of the vote with the other two. t was certainly the race of the decade with some unexpected turns. Other upsets include Senator Doug Mastriano winning the gubernatorial race upsetting…

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed. Politicians facing the prospective loss of political control through fear-mongering of something ⏤ Russia then and China now ⏤ limited any real responses that could have achieved a safe world with Russia in it…
