Serfdom + Netflix + Welfare might be just the thing for most people

Although she’s big into “I told you so” mode, I’m not into that at all. In life, you never know when a tile might fall off a roof and hit you on the head. Same with who might get Covid or when. But I do agree with this by Sarah Hoyt, suitably amended.

I was suicidally depressed amazed that no one else seemed to see it. Honestly? I still don’t understand why. The numbers from the Diamond Princess were clear enough, but more than that, the fact that our institutions announced they wouldn’t audit cases of Covid-19, meaning there was no penalty for inflating the numbers, which they were being given extra money for; and the “must not question” policies of the social media and news media made it obvious what was happening: it’s a scam.

Anyway, read her take, and with this I especially agree.

At the same time somehow the media, the panic, the insanity, was all in the holy name of convincing people this was the most lethal thing ever. Oh, and crashing the economy. And being able to steal the election. (Thank you, Americans. Even with all that shit, all the crazy bullshit, you voted for Trump in such numbers these assholes needed to fraud openly, in the light of day, in the most clumsy way possible.)

ALL OF IT was a political coup; a way to take down a successful president and install a China stooge. ALL OF IT.

That always seemed to be the agenda. Meantime, tradespeople I have been dealing with for years are shutting down their businesses with nothing to show for it other than years of effort thrown away because of an uncaring and completely clueless government (specially here in Victoria) and the credulous fools who vote for them. This seems sadly all too accurate.

The side effects of this are horrific: we have unemployed people…. We have people who missed their cancer diagnosis and are now dying. We have people who died of other illnesses, because going to the hospital wasn’t a thing…. We have elderly who started developing cognitive problems after being isolated for over a year. We have teens committing suicide. We have food wasted in big honking batches because restaurants were closed.

And there is this to dwell on as well from the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance – Prevention & Treatment Protocols for COVID-19. But I will end going back to Sarah and her post where she wrote:

I urge you very strongly to look at the members of the Junta and their helpers, and visualize the real people behind the masks. Visualize people who destroy a country and the world for the sake of more power over everyone, and to keep their misdeeds from coming out.

I URGE you to contemplate that they’d rather reign in hell than serve in heaven.

And then, if you ever again believe any of the media-ginned-up hysterias without checking facts or using your brain, be aware that next time the “I told you so” will have teeth. That knee to the groin will go all the way up. Oh, not administered by me, but by those younger and with more to lose who will be absolutely tired of this shit.

And what comes after might not be civilization as we know it.

If you could not visualise today from what you knew in 2019, you will not be able to visualise what is coming in 2023. Civilisation as we know it has certainly gone. What’s next? Who knows? But what you do know is that the serfs didn’t mind serfdom at the time, so going forward, Serfdom + Netflix + Welfare (with the footie thrown in), might be just the thing for most people.

And then, just to finish off: What Happens When Doctors Can’t Tell the Truth?. A sample from the text:

“People are afraid to speak honestly,” said a doctor who immigrated to the U.S. from the Soviet Union. “It’s like back to the USSR, where you could only speak to the ones you trust.” If the authorities found out, you could lose your job, your status, you could go to jail or worse. The fear here is not dissimilar.

Lots of things are not dissimilar.

    indeed.

    ‘might be just the thing for most people.’
    I’m not sure that follows. The real vote for Trump, and the unboosted vote for the other candidate, suggest that while a large proportion of people still unquestioningly trust the MSM, that proportion is not a majority – at least in the United States. In Victoria? Who knows. Time will tell. For hope, remember the 1990s.

  4. Judge Dredd says:

    I believe this why a number of high IQ people have said that the West ends around 2033. At this rate that date looks optimistic.
    People have been tricked by COVID, or just go along to get along. This means the evil and Satanic powers know they can keep pulling these scams again and again.
    Eventually there is a turning of the tide, but it usually involves civilisation ending bloodshed.
    You’d have to be stupid and ignorant to not know this is where it is going.
    Look back 20, or even ten years, and stuff has gotten unreal, completely tropo. So far left the spring back is going to make Stalin look like a pussy

    I went to my cancer doctor the other day, at a radiation clinic in Melbourne. Normally there might be half a dozen people in the waiting room, sometimes more, but this time I was the only patient. People are not getting checked up or treated.

    I swear, there will be a lot more deaths from neglect of real health issues than will ever die of Covid in this country. It may never be measured, but it will be real.

    It’s rather pathetic, but I was actually looking forward to an appointment with an oncologist because it got me out of the house! And I was allowed to drive more than 5 km! Result was “fair to middling” only.

    Indeed. The realisation most people in Oz haven’t a clue is both frustrating and liberating. Frustrating for obvious reasons; liberating because we have not just had the veil drawn from the political process, but also had a light shone on the process of opinion formation of our friends and colleagues. Many historical mysteries can be resolved watching this vacancy of mind.

    And this:
    https://www.lewrockwell.com/2021/06/james-howard-kunstler/what-if-the-big-lie-is-the-big-lie/
    ‘The downfall of Dr. Fauci is a watershed moment. There were so many more authorities caught lying over the past five years, but who got off scot-free — Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, James Comey (actually, the whole FBI and DOJ E-suites), John Brennan, James Clapper, Robert Mueller, Andrew Weissman, Adam Schiff, and the editors and producers of the news media, plus the execs of social media — who not only disabled the truth at every opportunity, but just about destroyed the public’s grip on reality.

    The result has been an utter collapse of authority in this land, so that now nobody who runs anything is credible, from the current pitiful president of the USA, to most elected and appointed officials, judges, corporate CEOs, college deans and presidents, and now “The Science” itself. Just remember: there is still a sizable faction in America of people who are deeply interested in ascertaining the truth about a lot of things. They are aiming to get at it, too, for example, the truth about the 2020 election. Maybe now you can begin to see why this is important.

    Yet the cable news channels were really at it last night (Thursday) with Erin Burnett and Anderson Cooper of CNN, and the slippery crew at MSNBC, strenuously assailing the Arizona election audit with their usual battery of opprobrious slogans…’

    This. The biggest event of my lifetime and 99% of this country is unaware it even happened.

    Yes. It is beyond most peoples comprehension that have been succored by the media, politicians, technocrats and health bureaucrats over Covid, and before that climate change which set the agenda for accepting bullshit science and expert advice. When you walk out your door and it’s freezing and blame global warming, you would think most people would wake up. But on queue the ABC propaganda machine doubles down to provide a convenient timely explanation so you don’t have to bother your head about impure thoughts that might shake up your belief system. Much easier to zombie walk through it all.

  9. miltonf says:

    Yes in the last five years we’ve learnt how truly evil the political establishment and their presstitutes are. As for the lieborals here, you wouldn’t piss on them if they were on fire.

    The Music Industry produced a song for Katy Perry to sing exactly about that only a few years ago. Now, the wokists thought to use Chained to The Rhythm in support of their leftwit messaging and Narrative (as did the militantly pro-Hillary Perry), seemingly without ever realising they had produced an anthem anathema to them and their ideals.

    Have a mighty close listen to the lyrics…

    That they certainly will, since hell is to be your own king, in a place where you are the only one present.

    CS Lewis (possibly my paraphrase, but this is the essence as I recall it):
    In the final analysis on Judgement Day the most that will be said is “Thy will be done” – either the creature will say it to God, or God will say it to the rebellious creature, for all who go to Hell, go there by their own choices.

    Let’s be honest here. Most, not all, but most people are very comfortable in the West and don’t want to be denied their iPhons and overseas trips and taking the kids to sports/skating/dancing. They willingly go along with the governments just to keep their comforts. How many people say “just get the dam vaccine/tested” etc and things will be back to normal?

    There is very little hope. Those that advocate “rebellion in the streets” will be arrested and quieted. Even now, in plain site, people Like Avi Yimini are being threatened at home.

    The deed is done.

    OK, it’s a World wide virus as is the cold and the ‘flu and probably about as lethal if one digs through statistics so why have they done this, what motivated them apart from stupidity, what continues to motivate them, surely even the dumbest know of the damage they have done to the economy and a looming depression that will make the last one pale into insignificance, so is there really a conspiracy afoot to actually recreate Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia? If so what is the purpose for both National Socialism and Marxists Leninism failed miserably.

  41. Cynic of A says:

    None of us know what it was like to eke out an existence a thousand years ago. Find food sometimes. Find warmth sometimes. Kill someone else often. If you did not manage to accomplish these few things, you died.
    No phone, no car, no electricity, no lotsa things.
    But now there are those in society who find that they can do without a lot of stuff, as long as they don’t have to work!
    All they need is food, a house – any house – and a TV. The Government will give them all of this, no effort required.
    And it’s possible, Indeed, it seems preferable to many people. Hence, they vote for the Government that sustains them for nothing.
    And, dear Cats, it does not take many people to think this way to elect largess Governments. Recall that a “landslide” electoral victory is what? 5% swing overall?
    Then there are the ones on the complete opposite side of the fence who want it all!
    And the way to get it is to be in charge. And the way to be in charge is to cheat, thieve and sometimes I suspect kill, (Epstein) just as it was a thousand years ago, except that the rewards are vastly more than mere existence.
    Consider the U.S. The election fraud. How many people were required to be dishonest, and commit fraud? In the higher up organisers, 1000? In the lower down slave suckers? 5000? Be generous, 100,000! Even 500,000! That’s all it took to steal an election, and steal a country. Less than 1 in 400 people. All they had to be was in charge of law enforcement, the legal system, and counting the votes.
    Like Sarah Hoyt, I am amazed!

  42. Docket62 says:

    Are you seriously suggesting China intentionally spread SARS-CoV-2 into Italy

    err… yes. The largest concentration of Chinese outside of Chine in Europe is… Italy. The direct flights from Wuhan were traced to the immediate source of the virus outbreak which originated in…Italy. I could go on but I generally don’t bother with people who refuse to educate themselves.

    as for Avi Yemini “Lurcio’.. again, you need to get to his back story. He’s a paid shill who’s acting on scripts.

    Not “Pokemon Go” so much though, popularity of that basically fell off in the first year. Their last “Go fest” in 2020 was online-only, so now the game is GINO – Go In Name Only. Couldn’t let lockdowns interfere with those in-app purchases.

  45. rickw says:

    How many people say “just get the dam vaccine/tested” etc and things will be back to normal?

    This was the theme of discussion at a work meeting last week: “help encourage everyone to get the vaccine so we can get back to normal!”. Only 2% of my crew are vaccinated and that’s unlikely to change thanks to our robust and open discussions on the facts of COVID. Nor is everyone getting vaccinated going to change anything, that’s not the agenda. Why the hype on “new strains” (something that is completely normal), because that will be their excuse for not releasing their grip even if everyone does conform with vaccination.

  46. Colonel Crispin Berka says:

    Docket62, there is no point quoting only the first 20% of a sentence and pretending that was the meaning of the entire sentence. I could go on, but I generally don’t bother with people who lie about what I actually said and then beat up a strawman.

  49. Kneel says:

    “This. The biggest event of my lifetime and 99% of this country is unaware it even happened.”

    We’ve (yes “we”) been propagandised to death – literally.

    “The West” and “Capitalism” is bad – so they tell us.

    Never mind that we fought a hot war to overthrow those who would discriminate against people based on their religion, never mind that we fought a cold war to oppose those who would remove our freedoms, never mind that we gave people equality regardless of sex, never mind that we disallowed slavery and fought against it, never mind that we disallowed racial discrimination, never mind that we disallowed sexual preference discrimination, never mind that we we took the world from 90% living in poverty 150 years ago to less than 10% living in poverty today, never mind that we extended life expectancy, never mind that we cleaned up after ourselves (pollution etc – eventually, but we did), never mind any of that – we are evil and we must be changed, whether we like it or not.

    Were we perfect? Of course not. But we aimed for it – even though we knew we could never reach it, we tried to improve ourselves. And when we ran out of real issues that caused real problems, we tried to fix made up problems, “problems” that those from 100 years ago or earlier would think were ridiculous to care about.

    We were, and continue to be, exploited – in our quest for fairness, for a fair go, for equality for all – which everyone wants, and no-one seriously objects to – we have allowed the narrative to change. Change from “equality” (of opportunity) to “equity” (equality of outcome), change from acceptance that people are different and not discriminated against because of it, to the requirement to celebrate and encourage relatively tiny minorities. Changed from being proud of who we are and what we have done, to being ashamed of it, to apologising for even existing.

    The very groups we fought to protect, those who we fought tooth and nail to allow to exist and to thrive if they worked the same as we did to better ourselves, these have turned against us, they have twisted our good will to extract our hard earned money and fredoms, to force us to change our ways and our lives to suit them and their agenda.
    We let them do it.
    And here we are.

    Because the majority of us are basically good, we expect everyone else is too. But they are not – not all of them. We have gotten rid of so much evil, we think we’ve gotten rid of it all. We have not. And it has been growing.

    Now we will be required to fight again – this time for ourselves, for not just our right to freedom and self determination, but to even exist.
    I have no doubt we will do so.
    I also have no doubt we will try to avoid it, and in so doing, cause it to be worse and bloodier than it needed to be.
    Ultimately, the good will win – if I can’t believe that, then I should give up now. And I refuse to give up – now, or ever. And that is why the good will win, even if I personally do not. Because the majority believe that too.

    I went to my cancer doctor the other day, at a radiation clinic in Melbourne… this time I was the only patient.

    All the best with your checkup… It’s just Melbourne, hospitals and clinics operating normally over here for many months now.

    Govt currently obsessed with sponsoring death – abortion, euthanasia, banning Ivermectin – yet somehow the lock downs and compulsory vaccine are critical to save ‘even one life’. I don’t think so.

  54. Colonel Crispin:

    What, there was no easier way for the CCP to start a virus spreading in Wisconsin than to send infected Chinese workers to Italy?

    The whole Wuhan Zombie Virus thing was multifaceted.
    One of those facets was to work out how the West would respond to a biological warfare attack. It succeeded in delivering to China just what would happen and how they could counter it.
    Whether we like it or not, WW3 will open with a cough in Milwaukee, a sneeze in Coventry and a liquid fart in St Petersburg.
    The entire infrastructure of the civilised world will fall into the hands of China without a struggle.
    Yes, China will lose some people – “so what” says X1?
