We’re All In This Together

How many times have we heard the nauseating line expressed in the blog title? Sure, it usually emanates from the mouths of sanctimonious politicians and we expect that.  The underlying premise of every program that they foist upon the public must have the underlying plank of “it’s for the good of the people”, as if we needed governments to tell us what’s in our best interests, since you know, they govern mental inferiors.   Aided by a compliant media, the message seeps into the psyche of the general public as would the stench of manure from simply standing in a barn.  The genius of sanctimony is that it makes those not in compliance, automatically unvirtuous people.  The other line oft heard is “well if it only saves one life”.  These are the sentiments of idiots.

In effect this program deputizes the masses of morally weak sycophants to rush to prove their worth in the virtuous society. This dynamic is being played out daily now that the “great pandemic of 2020” has moved into the one year anniversary of a voluntary 14 day quarantine.  It’s like the infamous Gilligan’s Island 3 hour tour. Instead of abating, we are now to believe that, not just one, not two, not three but FOUR waves of this deadly malaise is wreaking havoc on all civilized societies.  Notwithstanding the glaring absence of healthy people falling like flies who are not connected to care facilities, people actually are embracing the tyrannical rules foisted on them by their political masters.   It’s bizarrely like the taste of very strong cheese, which is first repulsive and then you become acclimatized to the smell of a cadaver and the taste of mold and begin to like it.  They even coined a name for this phenomenon years ago, Stockholm Syndrome.

Those brave enough to question the preposterous edicts are gaslit to believe that they are irresponsible and anti social. Only now, they are under the beady eyed scrutiny of their fellow citizens if they dare to have opposing views.  Whole populations of Karens have emerged to enforce the dictates of pearl clutchers who were only elected to catch dogs, keep the water clean and the streets safe.  They were not elected to direct people how to assess risk in their daily lives.  As the edicts become more preposterous, the public seemingly has an unlimited capacity to bend to them.  Closing down businesses, losing income, banned contact with family, friends and church….the line keeps moving.  We’ve heard talk of double, triple, or even quadruple masking to ensure ‘safety’.  Let’s not forget anal swabbing, also on the horizon.  Canada has a policy of sequestering visitors in hotel rooms at traveler expense after spending 3 days in a Covid clink.  We’re not even sure who is supposed to be protected.

The scofflaws in the linked article held a party and invited people to it.  Presumably the attendees all knew the risks and they weren’t forced at gunpoint.  They weren’t going to a bubble wrap party. This is reminiscent of the infamous prohibition days when people had to knock on a door with a sliding slit to enter a premise with any booze.  If that seemed preposterous then, it’s worse now.  In Florida, a very popular and busy grocery store was filmed by a medical doctor and he took umbrage with all of the unmasked people assembling within.  In fact, he tweeted “I hope they all die”.  A doctor.

The threshold for personal indignities imposed by the elected braintrust will continue to ratchet up as new rules are made up to adversely affect the lives of normal people. The more Karens that embrace these rules, the more likely that the politicos are emboldened with their reign of terror.  For those skeptical of this, I refer them to the present day Kabuki which is airport security. We see the effects of this brainwashing by observing the airport protocols that were initiated over 20 years ago.  We are still taking off shoes and being felt up at airports though not a single terrorist has tried to run the gates in all that time.  As terrorism threats then are to Covid now, the  real viruses endangering people are compliance and stupidity.


It’s Just A Little Inconvenience

Ten years ago, if I had written about the absurdities that are taking place now in society, culture and politics, it would have been viewed as drug addled delusion.

If we had forecast that the entire planet would fall under the spell of political operatives and forced to cower behind paper masks to repel an illness that statistically has no more lethality than a seasonal flu, it would sound off the charts preposterous.  But as we know, this is what has happened.  We recall that at the outset, a quarantine period of 14 days was required to quell the chances of a greater outbreak.

Fourteen days…how bad can that be?  Now, nine months later, it doesn’t appear as if restrictions will be abating any time soon.  Indeed, it’s going the other way.  Despite all the assurances of containment, herd immunity, yada, yada, yada, the danger apparently is even more ominous than it was almost a year ago.  As a consequence, new improved restrictions are being imposed by the political geniuses who are of course following the science.

All of a sudden, restricting people at Thanksgiving gatherings, religious assemblies and for that matter, anything to do with normal human interaction is to be restricted or outright banned.  Some rulers have even declared that Christmas is cancelled.  So, in order to curtail an imaginary pandemic, people cannot work, cannot go out to eat, cannot shop, cannot have friends over, cannot have family gatherings, cannot practice their religions and cannot even circulate in public without paper masks.  But, apparently, these are only minor inconveniences in order to serve the greater good.  We’d sure like to know who this greater good guy is.

On the very near horizon is the possibility of forced vaccinations and certificates thereof in order to access such common societal things such as banking, work, school, restaurants and air travel.  Recall that the left loved to use the scenario portrayed in the novel The Handmaiden’s Tale as a warning of a dark, dystopian controlled society.  The greatest surprise is not that ideological tyrants impose what they can get away with on their subjects; it’s that people comply even as their most fundamental freedoms are being cut off.  Worse than that, people are actually exhorting others to co-operate.  It’s Stockholm Syndrome on steroids.

We are asked to believe that an obviously afflicted dementia patient had won the popular vote for President of the United States when he couldn’t convince enough people to fill a phone booth during his total of 2 campaign rallies.  Despite clear mathematical and anecdotal evidence of voting corruption, the partisans are insisting on the veracity of the clearly manipulated results.  We are told that riots, killings and property destruction in support of his candidacy are actually peaceful displays of opinion.

If all of these measures are implemented to keep us safe, I think we’d all rather roll the dice and live dangerously instead.
