Welcome to The Causes of Things, a podcast from Sovereign Nations. The 1st century BC poet Virgil stated, “Blessed is he who understands the hidden causes of things.” This statement is as brilliant today as it was 2,000 years ago.

Primarily narrated by Michael O'Fallon, The Causes of Things is didactic in nature featuring a collection of teaching series & lectures, some of which are recorded specifically for this podcast, and some that are from public lectures. The show will offer discussion and information concerning a variety of complex ideas: The philosophical presuppositions behind the ideas that are aggressively shaping our world, the answers to those challenging ideas, and the necessary historical, hierarchical structure of the world as represented through the lens of Judeo Christian belief.

    Mere Simulacrity, Session 4

    What has led the Christian Church down the roads of numerous Mass Formation Psychosis programs over the past 10 years across evangelicalism?

    Mass Formation Psychosis occurs when a significantly large group of people myopically focuses its attention on a leader or a series of events and their attention focuses on one small point or issue. Followers can be hypnotized and be led anywhere, regardless of data proving otherwise. We have seen this materialize across evangelicalism through the massive campaigns run through The Gospel Coalition, the ERLC, and various seminaries in Baptist, Presbyterian and Charismatic denominations.

    From CRT, to intersectionality, to Revoice, to all myriads of Christianized schemes for the faithful to embrace DEI, the reflexive campaigns led by corrupt “Christian Leaders” have led millions astray and down a road of psychological manipulation.

    In this discussion enters Jean Baudrillard and his understanding of hyperreality the creation of synthetic reality, which is not reality at all: it is the creation of something that is more real than real.

    It is beyond propaganda, but propaganda is certainly utilized.

    It is the creation of simulacra and simulation.

    And in this world of simulacrums, we are being told to ignore what was held to be orthodox, normative and true and embrace hyperreality: an unreality that has no connection with that which it claims to represent.

    This continuation of this process leads to the development of a faith that is not the faith that was faithfully handed down from generation to generation. What this process leads to is a rough simulated beast of C.S. Lewis’ “Mere Christianity”.

    What it leads to is “Mere Simulacrity.”

    Join Sovereign Nations Founder Michael O’Fallon as he begins his three-part series on “Mere Simulacrity.”

    The Church of Wall Street | Andrew Woodard

    The Church of Wall Street | Andrew Woodard

    Mere Simulacrity, Session 3

    For decades, the evangelical church has seen an infusion of business philosophies and practices
    into the church. Now, in coordinated effort with the World Economic Forum Agenda 2030,
    business leaders are seeking to integrate distinctly religious terms and ideas into their practices.
    Though not referring to it by name, the post-millennial eschatological framework provides the
    foundation for their globalist, utopian vision. Cathie Wood, CEO of Ark Investments, is our case
    study and exhibit A, in this talk by Andy Woodard. Cathie has elsewhere stated that the kingdom
    of God is coming in 2030, and it will come through disruptive innovation. One specific example
    is that of DNA sequencing and mapping the human genome. The aim is to eradicate disease
    through developing the ability to edit human DNA.

    While dramatically expanded artificial intelligence, self-driving vehicles, DNA editing, and
    robotics that combine all of these might sound like the kingdom of God to the idealist they sound
    more like a dystopian, Left Behind, horror movie to the realist. When these “disruptive
    innovations” are cloaked in the garb of Jesus, you have the subject which is exposed in this talk
    by Andy Woodard, given at the Sovereign Nations, Mere Simulacrity Conference held in
    Phoenix in December 2022.

    Hermeneutics and Perspectivalism | Dr. William Roach

    Hermeneutics and Perspectivalism | Dr. William Roach

    Mere Simulacrity, Session 2

    Throughout the ages, theological and philosophical movements have been advanced based upon
    half-truths, false rhetoric, and equivocations championed as axiomatic principles.

    Theologians and philosophers, whether they are evangelical or non-evangelical, still use
    similar rhetorical devices to champion claims that undercut the concept of a universally valid
    approach to knowledge. They will say things such as: People have different perspectives, right?
    Clearly your background and personal biases influence your reading of the Bible or any other
    text, right? It would be overly prideful to claim that anyone particular person has the correct
    interpretation of the text, so why don’t you take a humbler approach?
    Fundamental to these questions is a half-truth; namely, the fact that people do approach
    events, texts, or situations from different vantage points. However, underlying this approach is a
    philosophical commitment to the belief we cannot have universally valid frameworks of
    understanding. Many believe any commitment to a universally valid framework of understanding
    ought to be considered arrogant, white, western, patriarchal, or racist. Essential to this line of
    reasoning are one of many philosophical approaches to reality known as idealism, subjectivity,
    relativism, perspectivalism, or any other “ism” that affirms all we have are interpretations, not
    knowledge.

    Dr. Bill Roach traces the rise of different idealistic revolutions up to the present day
    embrace of the existential method by evangelical scholars and pastors. He addresses Plato’s
    metaphysical idealistic, Kant’s epistemological idealistic revolution, Schleiermacher’s
    hermeneutical idealistic revolution, and Post-Modernism’s linguistic idealistic revolution.
    Special emphasis is placed upon leading figures in philosophical hermeneutics and the various
    ways present-day scholars, whether secular or evangelical, have embraced one or more of the
    various expressions of philosophical idealism. Dr. Roach concludes with a call to embrace
    philosophical realism as a corrective to the varying idealistic revolutions throughout the history
    of ideas.

    The Negation of the Real | Dr. James Lindsay

    The Negation of the Real | Dr. James Lindsay

    Mere Simulacrity, Session 1

    If you want to impose a totalitarian system, you have a problem on your hands: reality. The real is in your way and will eventually veto your project. Far sooner, people who can perceive reality will step in and prevent you from taking society over a cliff. Therefore, the only way to install a totalitarian system is to negate the real in the minds of those over whom you would rule. This is accomplished by creating an interpretive frame that deliberately causes people to misunderstand reality, sometimes called a "second reality" or "pseudoreality," or even a "hyperreality," which loses all contact with reality through its images and constructions. The totalitarian system "works" and would only work in that false image of reality. In his first talk at the Mere Simulacrity conference in Phoenix, Arizona, in December 2022, Dr. James Lindsay presents the idea and mechanism of negating the real to replace it with a hyperreal simulation in which totalitarianism can be accomplished. This, he argues, enables the installation of the Esoteric cult religion needed to advance the tyranny. Join him to understand how the Secret Religions of the West have slowly brought us to the brink of this disaster.

    Part 1: What is the WEF? Purpose Driven | Public Occurrences, Ep. 110

    The week of January 16th-21st of 2023 marks the first full return to in-person meetings for the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

    As The who’s who of the most radical globalists descend upon the picturesque ski resort town of Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting, up to 5,000 soldiers from the Swiss army will be deployed to offer military support to the civil authorities of the canton of Graubünden, who are responsible for securing the summit’s premises and its participants.

    So what is it that drives the world’s greatest collection of Malthusian, Fascist, Neo-Communists together each year?

    Simply stated, the World Economic Forum is purpose driven.

    The Sovereign Nations 2023 Forecast | Public Occurrences, Ep. 109

    The Sovereign Nations 2023 Forecast | Public Occurrences, Ep. 109

    Over the past several years at Sovereign Nations, I have provided a forecast for what will be on the horizon for all of us here in the United States and beyond as we continue down the dialectical river towards 2030.

    And now we arrive at the edge of 2023 with many people across the nation at the precipice of understanding that we are in the process of being manipulated by psychological operations and active measures.

    2023 is easily predictable: not just because of the long-planned goals of the Malthusian Neo-Communists, but also because of the fact that most of those that claim to be “conservatives” are not conservative at all.

    In knowing these things, and knowing that this is what is planned, you can participate in the proactive effort to ensure that these planned scenarios are not effectively put into place.

    It is your responsibility to ensure that we preserve our nation and ensure that liberty will continue for future generations.
