Thank you. Too many people have been talking about forgiving the perps so we can move on. I am fine with forgiving them just as soon as they admit their faults and sincerely beg for forgiveness.
I find myself hoping the current or next round of vaccines kill the conformists quicker. It's the only hope for rational thinkers.
The turbocharged warping of society and authoritative diktats are only happening because of covid, in that they fucked the world up beyond comprehension and deprived citizens of basic rights and dignities and NOBODY HAS CALLED THEM TO ACCOUNT. Of course everything feels insane right now. They got away with it and so this is very easy. Carbon allowances, meat allowances, travel allowances, whatever. Its part and parcel. And there is no escape. I think about this all the time. I suppose I could learn Russian...
People like this will always exist. They will also always establish structures, be it today the deep state, political "consensus" across "democratic" parties, lobbying organizations and powerful international institutions, in place of the monarchies, military dictatorships, and feudalism of the past.
The greater problem is that we don't find creative ways to deal with them.
No surprises that they've learned nothing except how to refine their technique. Their entire existence is centered around micromanaging human biopolitics as self-appointed administrators of our own best interests, as defined by them. From indoor smoking bans to plant-based dietary guidelines to academic codes of conduct, it just never ends with these people. They won't learn, they won't change, they won't stop. They simply need to be isolated and removed.
E: "Mark my words: Should they ever be allowed to get the public panic juggernaut up and running again, what they do next will make Corona seem like a mildly rough case of cultural and political indigestion. They’ve learned that the hard limits on their power are far weaker than they ever imagined. Their dark ambitions will hang over us like a Sword of Damocles for decades now."
Maybe. But I suspect that the Ukraine-related disaster in motion won't let them. I don't pretend to know how exactly that disaster will (continue to) unfold, except that a decisive victory for NATO is pretty much impossible. The question is whether those of us living in the West (broadly understood) will merely become collectively impoverished, or whether some major cities will get turned into nuclear wastelands in WW3. A repeat of a corona-like event strikes me as somewhat unlikely under the circumstances.
It’s the nefarious, leading the blind, leading the stupid, leading the mostly apathetic masses.
For those of us paying attention, it’s beyond maddening!
Will Europeans ever learn to be free? It seems the role of serf has been a part of the culture for far too many generations.
While in general they do demonstrate how to put on a good mass protest, the follow through of actually changing the behaviors of their "royalty" seems ineffectual. Not that those of the western hemisphere have done much better countering their own multitudes of usurpations.
There is no doubt these people want to do it again,at least they exhausted a huge amount of reputation on the Coronavirus that was barely above a cold.Trump for one is literally insane now ,attacking Florida as having a worse outcome than New York with Coronavirus.BTW it would be interesting to see how many olds in New York left the state and moved to Florida to live out there last year or so of their life ,only to be counted in their death statistics because they tested positive for coronavirus at death ,and also the amount of fraud is insane,$13,000 for a positive testers funeral.How many times that box must have got checked.Someone asked Trump about the vaccine this week and he comes across as typical Boomer.
Almost everything a government does that is later to be realized as a mistake can almost always be put in the back of the mind ,the vaccine in their blood and side effects being acknowledged is something that gets harder to be put away everyday,that’s the best short term resistance.
"when it comes to climate, fear is rational; and that, in consequence, the rational mandate of science would be to spread fear..."
1. Fear is not necessarily rational: it's a response to a threat, real or imagined.
2. Science does not mandate, but bureaucrats do...
"The bureaucrats & science retards responsible for the last three years of destruction and mass medical experimentation are unrepentant and eager to do the same thing all over again" until they have accomplished their goal of international bolshevism.
Blighty is slowly awakening to the utterly fraudulent mismanagement and catastrophic lunacy brought to us three years ago, but the enthusiasts are still with us, eagerly awaiting the WHO treaty.
Now the Blobosphere has adopted the completely irrational and equally destructive combination of Net Zero, Open Borders , Gender Recognition , 15 minute cities, demand management and the removal of productive farmland and rural areas for more bird slicers and solar panels: both largely produced in China.
The covid enquiry chairwoman, Baroness Hallett, is threatened with legal action by HMG, the intention being to restrict her access to various of our leaders' Whatsapp messages from the crazy times.
Beautiful picture. How are things in Austria these days? As I recall, they took the Corona nuttiness up to eleven.
"Their dark ambitions will hang over us like a Sword of Damocles for decades now."
If we're lucky. If we're not, the Sword drops tomorrow.
"Haug explains – and by “good” he really does mean that the Academy advised well … “Team Caution” always did everything right … The sensible majority followed the recommendations of the government, the Leopoldina and the RKI. "
That high-pitched whining you hear in the background is George Orwell spinning at high RPM in his grave, as the Academy defines a new standard for "newspeak" (from 1984), where bad is good, wrong is right, and nobody in power is to blame...
The bio medical tyrants have learned nothing from their total COVID failures except the intoxicating memory of the rush of power flowing through their veins as they issue one community crushing edict after another. When the next scamdemic arrives - which it most surely will - just like an addict they will seek an ever increasing “power high” by issuing even more tyrannical and useless edicts to the slumbering masses. The only way out is mass non-compliance.
