Bystander Apathy Is Wrecking America and It’s YOUR Fault!


Bystander Apathy is wrecking America. Until we fix ourselves we cannot possibly hope to have better leaders. Here is the story about how bystander apathy is wrecking America.


“The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil is that Good Men Do Nothing”

Edmund Burke

Our Congress has a sustained all-time low 9% approval rating, and it has been 15 years since I declared war upon the central bankers when they tried to steal my property and that of 300 of my neighbors without one dime being paid in compensation. In that time, I have witnessed how far to the left we have turned. Our country embraces every form of perversion, we tolerate the giving away of the Constitution and we lay down when we allow Pelosi, Feinstein et al work in concert to undermine our communities with Sinoloa/Chinese controlled drug trafficking, child sex trafficking, private and international theft of public water supplies, etc. And nobody is doing anything. This is called bystander apathy.

Even Most of the Awake Act Like Sheep

I have watched millions of our fellow countrymen show evidence that they are in various stages of waking up to the bankster inspired tyranny that is attacking every facet of our lives. The Independent Media has done a marvelous job of reaching the masses despite being ridiculed and shut out of the mainstream media aas well as endured extreme censorship. The Independent Media is being so effective that Congress  has attempted, on several occasions, to declare us to “not be journalists” (e.g. courtesy of Dianne Feinstein and John McCain) in several bills that have narrowly failed in Congress.

It is my considered opinion that we have awakened enough people who are collectively capable of making substantial and fundamental differences. This begs the obvious question, then why don’t we see a massive uprising against the central bankers and their institutions of control? Why are the thugs in Humboldt County, CA., acting with apparent impunity? There is no simple answer which will explain all the fence-sitting we are witnessing in the country today. However, there is one social-psychological factor which explains why the majority of the people who are awake to the present level of tyranny are not sufficiently motivated to act and that factor is called bystander apathy.

Bystander Apathy

The term bystander apathy (i.e. fence sitting) refers to the phenomenon in which the greater the number of people present, the less likely people are to help a person in distress. When an emergency situation occurs, observers are more likely to take action if there are few or no other witnesses.

The most frequently cited example of the bystander effect in introductory psychology textbooks is the brutal murder of a young woman named Catherine “Kitty” Genovese. On Friday, March 13, 1964, the 28-year-old Genovese was returning home from work. While Genvovese approached her apartment entrance, she was attacked and repeatedly stabbed by a man later identified as Winston Moseley.

Despite Genovese’s repeated calls for help, none of the dozen people in the nearby apartment building who heard her cries called the police. The attack first began at 3:20 AM, but it was not until 3:50 AM that someone first contacted police. Genovese’s death was preventable and the failure of her neighbors to report the crime in progress, brought the social-psychology term, bystander apathy, into the national discussion about people’s unwillingness to act in an emergency situation.

There are two major factors that contribute to bystander apathy. First, the presence of other people creates a diffusion of responsibility. Because there are other observers, individuals do not feel as much pressure to take action, since the responsibility to take action is thought to be shared among all of those present. Generally speaking, the greater the number of people which are present in an emergency, the less likely people are to take action.

The implication of Bystander Apathy would strongly suggest that the more people that are awakened by the Independent Media, the less likely individuals are going to act in defense of life of and liberty against the encroaching bankster tyranny.


The second reason that people refuse to get involved is due to the the need to behave in correct and socially acceptable ways. When other observers fail to react, individuals often take this as a signal that a response is not needed or not appropriate. Other researchers have found that onlookers are less likely to intervene if the situation is ambiguous. In the case of Genovese, most of the 38 witnesses reported that they believed that they were witnessing a “lover’s quarrel,” and did not realize that the young woman was actually being murdered. That is like saying the Nazis were only taking the Jews for a weekend holiday and it was all for their own good.

Bystander Apathy Is Synonymous With National Suicide

As far back as February 22, 2014,  I revealed the existence of a classified Army document which has been leaked online, entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations (PDF). The document was originally to be kept secret, but everyone in the military command structure, as far as we know, is not on board with the encroaching tyranny sweeping across this country. Yet, five years later, nobody has done anything about this threat to American civil liberties.

Straight from the Internment/Resettlement article (12 February 2010 FM 3-39.40 1-5) it states the following:

“…I/R operations may place Soldiers in continuous contact with or near insurgents, terrorists, or criminals who will exploit every opportunity to escape and kill or injure U.S. personnel or multinational partners“.

Speaking of our  “Multinational partners”, there are Russian troops training on our soil, along with other UN “Peacekeeping” troops including the Chinese. We all the Sinoloa drug cartel to operate with impunity in Humboldt County, CA., and nobody does anything. The above excerpt and the following paragraphs will make it clear regarding the INTENT to use “multinational partners” to round up and detain American citizens. And nobody does anything about it!

The Grid Ex Penetration by the Russian and Chinese Should Have Been a Wake Up Call

Russian troops allowed into the previously conducted Grid EX II simulated EMP attack drill? Russian troops have also been used to police major events on American soil. This is martial law desensitization training in which the Russians are trained to interact with American citizens. Also, FEMA signed a bilateral agreement with the Russian military to permit a minimum of 15,000 Russian soldiers to train on American soil and this was at a time when both Russia and China threatened to nuke the United States if we dared to invade Syria or Iran in the Fall of 2013.

The following is a quote from the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry:

The Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and the USA Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are going to exchange experts during joint rescue operations in major disasters. This is provided by a protocol of the fourth meeting of the U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission Working Group on Emergency Situations and seventeenth meeting of Joint U.S.-Russia Cooperation Committee on Emergency Situations, which took place in Washington on 25 June 2013.

The document provides for expert cooperation in disaster response operations and to study the latest practices. In addition, the parties approved of U.S.-Russian cooperation in this field in 2013-2014, which envisages exchange of experience including in monitoring and forecasting emergency situations, training of rescuers, development of mine-rescuing and provision of security at mass events.”

Russian defectors have long warned the United States about a multi-generational plot to conquer the United States from within. We know that former communist inspired Weathermen Underground leader, Bill Ayers, launched Obama’s political career from his Chicago home. Domestic terrorist, Bill Ayersstill visits the White House. Putin has said he will nuke us, but we tolerate these behaviors from our elected officials when we should be putting on yellow vests and taking to the streets.

CSS Coming Revelations That Will Likely Be Ignored Because of Bystander Apathy

Marilyn Rupar, Paul Preston and myself are soon going to be revealing Pelosi and Feinstein’s involvement in what is happening in Humboldt County that is being exported to many communities in the country. We will reveal, in detail how this is a direct threat against every single American. And at the end of the day, it is likely that the awake among will say, “I hope somebody takes care of that”.


It is not difficult to conclude that America is going to continue to fade into the annals of history without so much as a collective whimper. Spare me the “300 hundred million handguns bravado”. Where are they?

When I grew up learning about the Holocaust and read Martin Niemöller’s quote, I never realized that I would someday be living the essence of his quote in modern day America. 

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

The sad part is that they have already come for us, they just haven’t broken down your door, YET!

    Dave I am sorry but we have done it to ourselves. Liebeck v. McDonald’s of 1994. Remember back when the woman bought a McDonalds coffee and ordered a hot coffee? Spilled it by her own neglect on herself. And at that point there was NO shortage of Lawyers to take her case. Since then it has only just grown to where NO one wants to get in involved period. That’s kind of when I saw the hand writing on the wall. So Dave you been one of my most stable reporters You and I can agree on most anything. So keep up your very good work my young friend. Take care my borther

    I think it’s more like Stockholm’s Syndrome, we have been held hostage by degenerates in government for so long we have come to think of them as benefactors.

    Our wealth used to promote their agenda and we sit back and “wish” it to change. Drugs, tobacco, alcohol and pharmaceuticals used to appease us.

    Change is an action verb, we need to make a collective stand! No more socialism- no matter the label or disguise!

    Thanks for what you do.


  3. Inalienablewrights March 17, 2019 at 8:55 am

    and “patriots” Dave make of a large percentage of this apothic group.

  4. Forearmed March 17, 2019 at 10:29 am

    You know Dave, the only way to stop this is to stop the men who are perpetrating this. AND, I mean stop them by whatever means you have at hand or at your disposal.. But, we must ask ourselves if we are the point where we would rather give up our lives or live as slaves on the State’s plantation. We aren’t quite there yet, but we’ll get there none the less and when that time comes the Patriots and the Militias will come out of the wood work to take command as did the patriots who fought during the Revolutionary war. The sad part is that Americans who, as you say, are apathetic are just like the colonist were, such that a very small percentage of the men at that time actually fought for our independence.

    While we may need twice that percentage, I will bet that we’ll get twice that. With such a low approval rating of our Congress, a large portions of our society is not liking what Trump is finding out about the deep state’s involvement in our governmental operation and Congrtess’s inability along with the DOJ, to bring anyone to justice. The lower the approval rating, the better chance we have to right the wrongs we have been subject to.

  5. Unbeliever March 17, 2019 at 10:42 am

    Wow Dave, how many people who sit on their ass and try to get other people to do the dirty work excuse themselves by saying I told you so? This country is so corrupt from top to bottom. Make excuses for the whore of Babylon and imagine your Trump is who he really pretends to be and shame people who don’t go out and kick ass because if they do you’d disavow them instantly and make excuses that you didn’t call for violence. And don’t pretend violence isn’t necessary. Violence is institutionally used against people by the government every day. The paycheck Nazis will never cease till the money stops. Tyranny is good business

  6. Unbeliever March 17, 2019 at 11:47 am

    So I don’t believe you’ll allow my comment to be posted, the previous one, but I’m going to go ahead and use this as an opportunity to communicate with you, personally. Same I think you’re a good guy. I don’t believe you’re a con Man like AJ or DJT, because they are con men. I can assure you I grieve for the state of affairs in this country. Many of us do. The problem is that many of us hear your warning gladly but don’t have direction or ability or will to do anything about it. Is like dressing up for a ball that will never take place. If you want people to “do something” state clearly what you want them to do. They voted. For a fraudster who says all the right things and does all the opposite. They go to pep rallies wave their flag, chant lock her up, wear red targeted hats and some actually fight antifa in the streets. But nothing changes. What keeps people in line is the threat of violence. Even the spanking you get from a cop that pulls you over is only effective because that cop has a gun, and a uniform (conformity), and command and control comms, and state of the art equipment and access to a dozen other cops who will shit all over your rights of you dare question them. It’s institutionalized violence. It’s why they get a pass for violence, they are agents of the state. They are the teeth of the dog that keeps Americans at bay. No teeth, no conformity. The political class does not fear the public. No teeth, no cooperation. America is like a toothless dog that is neutered by ignorance, and by fear. Shaming the dog isn’t helping. Dogs need training. They also need leadership and direction. Shouting “the British are coming!” Means nothing. “Sick em! ” Is different. Want to be the one who shouts that? Not me.


  7. Hal Messinger March 17, 2019 at 11:47 am

    Dave, Check up on “Five Eyes” as they have been doing the “dirty work” of spying on Americans for the “Deep State”.

    Also, Trump did not walk away from the meeting he had with Kim in Vietnam. The Chinese felt the USA would be getting too close to their shorelines if Kim made the deal with Trump. The Chinese had a family member to replace Kim if Kim went ahead of the deal. Also, Kim was concerned about the North Korean embassy in Spain being raided about the time the conference with Trump was going on.

  8. Ed C March 17, 2019 at 11:53 am

    I agree let’s build the army! Largely I believe we already have, we just need a bullhorn, a location to meet up and form our plan. I do believe this is what patriots are looking for! Who has a bullhorn that they are willing to use, and a list of followers who are ready to take the action you speak of? My answer is patriot internet sites like the Common Sense Show, Infowars, Justice Knight, Steve Quayle, etc. There are many groups which have already formed throughout the US just waiting to lower the boom on the rouge gov factions. All it will take is the call to arms 📣. Don’t ever forget the shot which was heard around the world!

    To be really effective in this maneuver where would you start?

  9. laura ann March 17, 2019 at 12:25 pm

    People won’t call police unless it’s a crime on family or self, because the bad guys no longer get punished. Capital murders are still on death row after decades, retail workers are fired for tackling or punching shoplifters, The courts are corrupt and criminals incl sex offenders in my area are on the streets, no jail time. Many I talked to would look the other way. Another ex: former house I was in 3 houses down from me, drug dealers selling drugs: cars in and out all hrs of night, another person called police, nothing was ever done, left the rental a mess. Why does anyone want to be a cop anyway??

  10. MKGunnells March 17, 2019 at 12:40 pm

    You know why people aren’t out in the street? They are busy trying to live their lives, raise their kids, and keep their job. My parents barely had enough time to work, and raise their children. Any civic activity was pretty much out of the question, and any political protesting would have definitely been out of the question. We can barely get 50% of registered voters to the polls on one day every two years. How do you expect them to actually show up to a protest like those of the Gilet Jaune? Ironically, all those things with which we find ourselves constantly preoccupied (jobs, kids, etc.) amount to nothing if we don’t save the country. As Benjamin Franklin said, ‘you have a Republic, if you can keep it’. Do we even deserve it anymore, especially with all the political apathy?


  11. Denton March 17, 2019 at 2:43 pm

    I have been your critic and you have even called me a troll, but I am here to tell you this is your best and most accurate post, Dave.
    We are We, the People, which is now more precisely defined and We, the Ignorant. We ignore what God told us while preferring the Lie and the father of the Lie.
    Do We, the Ignorant think Father is going to provide protection while we defy Him? If so, We, the Ignorant are delusional.

  12. MWB March 17, 2019 at 2:53 pm

    Ok I’ll be that guy. I will call out any and all 3%ers othkeepers and other TRUE Patriots. I’ve been saying this for years!! I’m ready to roll not for me but for OUR kids! IF NOT US THEN WHO? IF NOT NOW WHEN?? It’s in the Constitution people!! The right to throw off tyrannical government is our duty!! If you don’t believe me read the Constitution! THIS IS YOUR CALL! THIS IS YOUR GREEN LIGHT! May God bless you all and God bless America.

  13. Toejamicus March 17, 2019 at 3:12 pm

    Do not forget that our friend, Allie and back stabber of the American people, Israel, is in tight up to their eyeballs with the “Sinoloa/Chinese controlled drug trafficking (and big time) child sex trafficking, But that’s just okie dpkie because they, Israel, gets to receive $billions each and every year from the dummkopf American taxpayers.

  14. Unbeliever March 17, 2019 at 3:13 pm

    Begging your pardon sir,the title of this article indicates clearly that it’s OUR FAULT for the destruction of America. It’s not you who needs defend himself, it’s us. Launch an observation, get information launch an accusation, get a rebuttal.

  15. EMPD March 17, 2019 at 3:47 pm

    Does anyone born after 1975 ever read Dave’s facts & wisdom? All I see of the vast majority of them is work, family, staying afloat and filling every spare moment self-indulging on their iPhone. Inflation is a wrecking ball on the middle class. Trump has been politically emasculated. We have no one but ourselves, and I am not sure if we are nothing but a bunch of senile geriatrics blowing smoke at one another.

    The anarchists/seditionists are organized and determined while the patriot pussies never organize (501(c)(4)’s), raise money or develop a battle plan. We are BYSTANDER APATHY at its apex.

    “Ask not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.”

  16. Arthur W. Simpson March 17, 2019 at 5:25 pm

    Aloha Dave,
    Here’s our problem. The bads must be eliminated. Nothing less.That’s called war. If a good kills a bad now he will stand out, be arrested and locked up. So even if all the goods are totally informed, they can’t kill a bad because the risk is too great. The “Point of no return” is when so many goods kill so many bads that no one stands out to be locked up. That’s called war. That is when the milk and the cream separate. The goods come together with their guns and the bads come together with their guns.
    Generally the bads come together first and start the shooting first. That’s why the big push to confiscate guns, so there is less risk to the bads. We will reach the “Point of no return” when the elite run to their DUMBS and the elite stupids start shooting the goods. Count on 12+M Muslims to be on the bads side (U.S.). You will know when that point happens because the goods will be protecting home, loved ones and property at which point things are so bad they will risk getting locked up or shot.. They will not start the war, but they either finish it or die. It’s called the fourth seal…Revelation 6:8.

    Remember the Revolutionary War was fought and won with 3% of countrymen! When you are inspired by your creator you can accomplish much! We must be filled with the spirit and follow it in defense of out home America! Would you defend your home residence loved ones against an intruder? Well isn’t America our collective home? Of course! There is no question we collectively need to stand up to this mass corruption on all fronts! THANK YOU DAVE HODGES FOR GETTING THIS QUESTION POSTED FOR US ALL TO SEARCH OUR CONSCIENCE! 👊🗡

  19. Frank R March 17, 2019 at 9:25 pm

    America is already wrecked. We have collectively turned our backs on God. Read history to know whats next. We don’t wrestle against flesh and blood but against demonic forces in high places. Our entire government from federal down to the local levels are all corrupt except very few. I agree that if someone is being victimized you should man up and deal with it. I have intervened many times in my life and put my own life on the line a few times but how can you live with yourself to ignore an innocent victim if you can do something about it.
    They don’t acknowledge the Constitution and the Bill of rights anymore. They are gone and that is the harsh reality. Trump may have wanted to do something good but his hands are tied and anyone can see that now. We have a one party system, the greed party. As long as there are legal payola special interests lobbying with billions of dollars the system will remain corrupt. I have already lost just about everything because of the Gospel. I am hated by many but so be it. I will stand up for America to turn back to God but Im sure its already too late. People just want their nice comfortable easy lives and don’t want anything to threaten that. They buy the devils lies and Im talking about Gods people. The rest are animals. Its only a matter of time but its game over as far as I can see at this point. The evil spreading across this nation is like nothing I have ever seen in my 60 years. I still hope for the best and do what I can but prepare for the worst also and that means get right with God first and he will provide.

  20. Native March 18, 2019 at 1:56 am

    Hey Dave,

    As you know, ex-KGB Agent Yuri Bezmenov said that most of the job of the KGB was in subversion and demoralization.

    The goal, he said, was to demoralize the West to the point that they would see problems and be unable to deal with them.

    Thus, we have a President who has probably been told repeatedly by the US Dept. of Defense that he merely needs to call them to build a Wall per 10 USC 284.

    Instead we get NO wall and a lot of public and unnecessary dram.

    Most of the public is too demoralized to do anything.

    Besides, what, pray tell, do you suggest that we DO about the problems?

    The President won’t listen, and Congress does not care. Neither do our local politicians.

    But God cares.

    In the 1950s, unarmed Austrians drove Communist invaders out of their country without firing a shot.

    How did they do that?

    They prayed the Rosary every day by themselves and in groups for the deliverance of their country from Communism.

    It worked!

    Pray the rosary every day for your salvation and that God will deliver our nation from Communism!
