Socialist Soup in the United States: Masks, the Mob, and the Cops (Part FOUR)

Now, about the police, and the calls to defund them by communist organizations like “Antifa” and “Black Lives Matter”, along with a substantial number of ruling class elites and politicians. America is not Cuba, or China, or North Korea, or East Germany in the 1950s and 1960s. Unlike these overtly totalitarian regimes, whose ruling classes openly employ the police as rank puppets of their autocratic ideologies, and where the police essentially comprise the sum and substance of the judicial system on the whole, where knee-smashing and head-bashing thugs are given badges and uniforms and are tasked with being judge, jury, and executioner all in one…unlike these places, the ruling class of the West, and the United States in particular, have much more of a reluctant relationship with the police. In a “perfect” totalitarian state, which again as I have mentioned previously in this series, is the logical conclusion of all governments, including western democracies, despite totalitarianism being less profitable and less efficient, the police serve the whims and pleasures of the ruling class at all times, without exception, and with pure, undiluted violence, to compel the categorical rank servitude of the masses in both thought and deed. But here in the West, and again the United States in particular, the police serve as an unwitting part of the facade of “constitutional freedom”, and the feint and artifice of liberal democracy. This is because in the West, “liberal democracy” is the ostensible context in which the ruling class operates and exists…it is why the ruling class is the ruling class. Thus, it is the illusion which the ruling class must maintain in order to continue to enjoy the power they possess. Now, again, understand that this does not mean that liberal democracy is maintained in perpetuity in the West…the whole point of this article series is to articulate an example of the evolution of liberal democracy into rank authoritarianism, and the natural tendency of the ruling class to resort to overt tyranny in place of any other form of governance. The natural progression of the philosophical premises which underwrite and inform government ALWAYS lead to an overtly totalitarian conclusion. It is unavoidable. Here I am simply pointing out the irony that is particular to western democracy: that in the interest of preserving it, and thus preserving their political power, the ruling class will reject liberal democracy in favor of the more messy and less efficient, less profitable totalitarian version of governance. This is why politicians in the U.S. will, for example, speak of preserving Constitutional liberties and the right of all Americans to be treated fairly whilst simultaneously ordering the police to stand down and allow enormous sections of dozens of cities to be burned to the ground by rioting mobs of rank communists, and, by the ruling class’s brazen inaction, facilitate the destruction of public and private monuments and statues throughout the nation, which is a direct assault on the identity of the very country they claim to publicly serve.

At any rate, as important members of the political farce called “liberal democracy”, the police in the West must be seen (in most circumstances, anyway) to uphold said democracy, and in the United States, this means upholding the constitution, and this means serving and protecting the rights of the citizen against constitutional violations, even if those violations are perpetrated by the ruling class.  And this means that many police officers identify with the more conservative end of the political spectrum, and thus do not easily acquiesce to being pawns of the ruling class In its quest for greater and more direct control of the masses. The police for the most part are obedient and they are ideological, which is expected from those who have given their lives in service to the State. But because they see themselves as important players in the preservation of the Constitution, and the liberties that that document ostensibly implies, the police pushback against the totalitarian decrees issued by the ruling class more often than the ruling class would like. A good example is the refusal of many police and sheriffs departments in the U.S. to enforce the ridiculous, pointless, and clearly unconstitutional “public health” edicts handed down by governors with respect to the coronavirus pandemic, where governors acted independently of any state congressional approval, or even congressional involvement at all, let alone taxpayer consent. This kind of pushback from law enforcement makes the police ultimately unreliable when it comes to exercising the kind of direct violent control of the masses the ruling class must rely upon more and more as the liberal democracy over which it presides continues its inexorable slide towards the sewer of totalitarianism.

All of this being the case, we can see now why, for a while, anyway, the ruling class must outsource its tyrannical wishes to the lower, dependent-class rage mobs of almost perfect and perfectly pure psychosocial dysfunction. Yet, as I have explained, this arrangement with the mob—the informal soldier of the state rampaging through his own neighborhood destroying whatever and whomever he can find, giving no real thought to the distinction between friend or foe, possessing no objective which is truly comprehensible to himself, and, in addition to destroying his environment, destroying himself—this arrangement is not ideal. The ruling class understands that this approach is brazen, indelicate, off-putting, inefficient, and expensive, and their complicity becomes harder and harder to hide. To instead formalize this mob…to make it official business of the State to terrorize and traumatize the tax cattle into submission by giving the mob badges and uniforms and service weapons  and pensions and a formal, albeit rudimentary and simplistic, ideology upon which to smash and murder and rob and torture—this is a better, more ecological strategy, as far as the purposes is of the ruling class is concerned. By exerting formal, direct control over the mob by institutionalizing it and calling it the police, the ruling class is better able to mitigate their uncertainties with respect to their power going forward. The police, unlike simple rioters, can be more incisive, exact, nuanced, more psychologically threatening, surreptitious, subliminal, and controllable; more loyal, less expensive, less ostentatious, less messy.

Replacing the mob with the cops, however, is a challenge. It’s not a simple task because whilst doing so the ruling class must continue to maintain the illusion of a free and representative western liberal democracy. This is hard to do when the very suggestion of replacing the police can be understood even to the most intellectually somnolent citizen (which is most of them) as a rejection—to at least some degree—of the current judicial system. Thus, in order to make more palatable the idea of replacing law-enforcement defenders of the Constitution with hired thugs who will wipe their jackboots on the document, the ruling class engages its propaganda machine to demonize, demoralize, and morally condemn the police as being guilty of the very things they wish to bring about by replacing them. It’s a pretty effective form of psychological warfare, if not a particularly imaginative one. Simple reverse psychology, but it works. The police are scapegoated and defamed as racist, hateful, trigger-happy, violence-loving, mindless barbarians who indiscriminately accost and attack and murder members of the victim class through sheer murderous pleasure—the “victim class” meaning, in the United States, blacks, and occasionally other “minority” groups, when convenient; the reason blacks are so often portrayed as the victim, however, is that they are so easily provoked to outrage and violence, and this because the ruling class has hooked the black community on the drug of welfare more than any other group by far—and all of these fabricated police atrocities and dark psychological characteristics of course are the very things which shall become ubiquitous in law enforcement and completely legalized once the ruling class is able to manipulate law-enforcement directly, without having to pay lip-service or deference (however superficial it already is) to pesky inconveniences like Constitutional rights.

Socialist Soup in the United States: Masks, the Mob, and the Cops (Part THREE)

After several months of compliance, the citizens are beginning to reject the lockdown. There are lawsuits, there have been protests, masks are not being worn in public and businesses are not enforcing mask or social distancing laws; some counties have defied governors’ mandates and have moved ahead with easing the lockdown without executive approval. People are beginning to recognize the rank incompetence of the State in handling this pandemic, and they are casting more and more of a suspicious eye upon the data being provided to them by government health agencies and disseminated by the transnational propaganda machine otherwise known as the mainstream media. In short, Americans are rejecting the ruling class’s capricious and bumbling management of their lives with respect to this pandemic.

And here cue the mob.

The ruling class has always employed enforcers…those whose job it is to remind the sheep and cattle just who is in charge. A boot to the crotch, a pipe to the knee, a club to the back of the head, a brick to  the window, a flame to the store…in more official arrangements of totalitarianism you’ll see, in addition to the aforementioned, random arrests, random convictions, long and violent interrogations looking for no real specific information…that kind of thing. Here in the United States the ruling class has no official nor officially sanctioned enforcers, obviously, because this would necessarily undermine the facade of liberal democracy, which undermines their wealth and power; and let’s not forget that the artifice of liberal democracy has  been the mechanism for the greatest non-voluntary wealth transfer in the history of the world. So here, in the U.S., we don’t get the Blue Caps or the Santebal or the  Stasi, we get the mob.

After all, the ruling class in the West cannot simply send in official and officially uniformed, formally sanctioned death squads to capture, torture, and murder the disobedient human tax cattle, by which we mean the middle class, in order to “coax” them back into line. The cattle should not be spooked by such optics. They must be kept docile, and their docility is to a large part ensured by the belief that their government actually cares about them, and respects their individual identity and autonomy. This is of course so obviously false that one wonders why the ruling class bothers attempting to hide the truth at all, and yet in spite of  clear, if not officially acknowledged, disdain for those over whom they rule, the vast majority of Americans continue to believe that their government is, at root, completely benevolent and meritorious, and that it is the perversion of the Constitution which is to blame for their misery, and not the logical consequences of the philosophical principles upon which the Constitution is established that has brought us to where we are today.

Anyway, in response to the flouting of lockdown orders and mask laws, the unofficial State enforcers are called up for active duty. Triggered by unofficial State-sponsored propaganda, like, for example, “random” videos of “random” white police brutality against “random” and “innocent” black people, the mob is sent in to terrorize urban areas, which of course lay just at the gates of the tranquil bourgeois neighborhoods of the suburbs, and in some cases, the mob is even leaked to a small degree into the suburbs, in the form of “protestors”, who are not necessarily violent, yet violence is the message which is being conveyed, if only implicitly. Obey or else, is the message they bring, as they point to the destruction raging just beyond the pristine middle class streets.

The mob is of course comprised of the unofficial enforcement shock troops of the ruling class, and by this I mean the government-subsidized lower classes. The State-sponsored and State-financed brigades of manufactured dependents, whose indolence and irresponsibility and social dysfunction and open rejection of beauty and nobility and integrity and art and intelligence and reason and tradition and social contract and morality is subsidized and thus encouraged by trillions of dollars of public assistance money, paid for by the middle class tax cattle. The ruling class raises up legions of undereducated, angry, unsupervised, bored, hopeless, thoughtless, self-aggrandizing, narcissistic and psychopathic, sexually immature soldiers, raised in violent, dangerous, fatherless, mentor-less, dysfunctional, and supremely traumatic environments and unleashes them upon the city to do what they do best—destroy themselves and everything around them. Thus, the unspoken and implied message to the middle class from the ruling class is sent: You need us. Without us, your political overlords, look at what you shall reap. We are what separates you from the barbarian hordes; we are WHY they are at your gates and not at your front doors. You will continue to obey. You will continue to accept your role as political scapegoat and as tax cattle. We will cut you up for meat and leather and milk and veal, and you will accept all blame and moral condemnation that is rightly applied to us; you will absorb the ire and invective coming from the communist, indolent, entitled academic idiots and their idiotic pupils for social ills that we have wrought and in return we will keep the mob behind the class wall.

Socialist Soup in the United States: Masks, the Mob, and the Cops (Part TWO)

When viewed as chronological episodes of a communist coup perpetrated by communist political and paramilitary organizations like “Black Lives Matter” and “Antifa” (quotes used due to the inherent hypocrisy in the names), the relationship between the recent riots in the United States and the subsequent demands to defund the police becomes apparent. These two incidents, combined with what can only be described by as unconstitutional and totalitarian suspension of the right to life, property, and association in response to a pandemic which was misunderstood by not only the government, but the medical and scientific community, to the point of utterly infantile incompetence, constitute a trifecta of subversive communist maneuvers designed to collapse the system of representative democracy and replace it with a Marxist ethno-state where the “racist, privileged white classes” serve at the pleasure of some nebulous and under-defined victimhood of marginalized “people of color”. You may be tempted to think that, due to the prevalence of white people who support this ideology, that this is a movement of true equality for all races, true Diversity. However, Diversity as an Ideal, which it must be to constitute the basis of a political movement, is monolithic. Meaning that Diversity must be able to to article the antithesis of itself…it must be able to say that which is NOT diverse, and then morally condemn it. And what is NOT diverse is the “system” of “white privilege”. In other words, that which is the evil antithesis of Diversity is Whiteness, and the repository of Whiteness is White people. White people represent the evil of white privilege and are thus an affront to Diversity. Which means they must be subordinated and eventually eradicated.

Don’t believe me? Fine. Think what you want, but this is how it is, whether you accept it or not. You will surely see. And it is truly a short walk from disallowing representation based on racial identity to the gas chambers. So if you’re white, and you support leftist Diversity ideology and are in favor of its application via US law, you might want to remember what happened the last time a violent, racist group of leftist ideologues gained a political majority in a powerful imperial nation with the weapons, resources, and audacity to commit blatant genocide in front of the entire world.

Mask laws are not laws for public health, because there is absolutely no evidence that they are effective in doing what the State tells us they will do: protect us from respiratory illness, and in fact they might and probably do make the problem worse. What mask-laws, and social distancing laws to an extent, are, I submit, are a test of public compliance. The state governors demand obedience to unconstitutional dictatorial decrees regarding a mild respiratory illness, demand that law enforcement proceed with monitoring of required behavior and promise punishment for non-compliance, and then sit back and see who and how many fall into line. The reason I focus upon mask-wearing is because among the three most prevalent behavioral orders—stay-at-home, social distancing, and masking wearing—mask wearing is the most obvious of all when it comes to gauging public compliance.

Despite there being absolutely no conclusive, or, I would submit, even convincing, scientific evidence that wearing a cloth mask over one’s face in public does anything to reduce the spread or risk of coronavirus, and despite that almost no effort was exerted by government to ensure and enforce proper mask-wearing practices, making it almost inevitable that mask-wearing would facilitate the spread of coronavirus, regulations were and continue to be legally binding upon citizens. In short, Americans are being asked to obey a law which was instituted unilaterally by governors with absolutely no evidence that the law was necessary nor effective nor moral. In other words, governors demanded that Americans obey an arbitrary law simply for the sake of obedience, alone. Period. Which is about as far from constitutional and democratic as it gets. “Obey or else” is not the foundation of American enlightenment democracy. The governors don’t seem to care.  And that is scary.

Americans, in response to this, and to the propaganda fear-mongers otherwise known as the mainstream media, and to the pseudo-science of government-funded opportunists in the medical community, dutifully donned the masks…for a while. Then the warm weather came, cries of falling skies and streets littered with the dead and dying victims of coronavirus, and soaring case fatality, mortality, and infection rates were all found to be completely manipulated, and the predictions based on models which were off by mathematical factors so extreme as to make the data incomprehensible. And here Americans began to grow lax with in their obedience. The masks began to slip…businesses no longer really enforced social-distancing and mask-wearing rules, though they remain in place nominally. Now, despite no official retraction in many places of mask laws, shelter-in-place laws, or social distancing laws, Americans are becoming less and less compliant, and are more open about flouting the unconstitutional demands placed upon them by despotic governors. They are starting to understand these “public health” laws for what they are: pointless, counterproductive, and stupid. No thanks to any diligent or responsible reporting from the media, I should add. No, the media sold out to ideology and profit decades ago. And Americans are understanding this, too.

Make no mistake about it, the ruling class is very displeased with this. Americans appealing to their rights as free and complete individuals, capable of competently living their own lives and making their own choices in their own best interests absent the incompetent meddling and tantrum-throwing of socialist ninnies and nannies in government is NOT what the ruling class wants from its subjects.Subjects are to be ruled, and the ruled obey. The constitutionality of the law is irrelevant. If man could work out his existence effectively and morally by being FREE and exercising individual liberty, then man wouldn’t need to be governed in the first place. They ruling class knows this, and they expect you to know it, too. Appealing to your constitutional rights doesn’t inspire your leaders or impress them, it simply pisses them off. If the governor wants you to wear a mask, you wear it. It’s that simple. And you’ll wear it for as long as it pleases them. If you wear it to the graveyard or crematorium and beyond, so be it. It’s the law. They are the law-givers; you are the law-taker. Take it. Do it. And shut up.

In part three, we’ll examine the role of the rioting rage mobs, and why they logically follow the mask-laws and the citizens’ rejection of these laws.

END part TWO

 

Socialist Soup in the United States: Masks, the Mob, and the Cops (Part ONE)

Let’s examine the relationship between the following three themes of the blatantly communist trifecta currently dismantling the United States republic. And, if I may preemptively say so, the communist strategy reveals itself as soon as even a cursory description is provided…it’s that obvious.

1. Related to the rank and baseless hysteria known as the Covid-19 pandemic, mask wearing has become (and thank God is waning due to pushback from citizens and smaller county governments) as a legal requirement for buying and selling goods and services, and  for public interaction and social gatherings, and this despite the utter lack of any conclusive scientific evidence that masks are effective in ultimately reducing or preventing the spread of respiratory illness. In fact, and on the contrary, there IS evidence that routine mask-wearing in public actually facilitates the spread of respiratory illness due to improper usage and ignorance of the risks and benefits of face-masks in general.

2. Large violent mobs of lower socioeconomic classes gathering to engage in widespread rioting, which includes but is not limited to: theft, assault, murder, arson, and general large-scale destruction of private property and private businesses, all of which is encouraged by members of the political ruling class, both tacitly (on the right), and overtly (on the left). All of this was in response to an incomplete video (not police body-cameras footage, by the way, which as yet has not been released to the public) of alleged police brutality where a black suspect died while being subdued by four officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The ostensible reason for the lower class rage mobs is to “protest” white racism in law enforcement and in general (as “systemic”, which is purposefully nebulous and non-specific, in order that “racism” may be defined and redefined at will and instantaneously, for whatever purpose the leftist ideologues decide is needed at any given moment) against the black community, despite the fact that only two of the four officers involved in the incident were white.

3. Calls from violence-endorsing communist organizations like Black Lives Matter and “Antifa” (I use quotes due to the inherent hypocrisy in the title) to defund the police nationwide and replace them with some kind of as-yet un- and under-defined socialist program which, if history is our guide, will undoubtedly manifest as little more than the enforcement arm of a communist political ruling class, complete with extra-constitutional police-like authority to violently compel a communist social agenda.

*

I understand the initial reaction the average citizen can have to this trifecta of primarily leftist-orchestrated crisis and hysteria…at first glance, it appears chaotic, without reason or rhyme, insanity run amok, and hands wring in consternation, fear, and confusion. But to those, I dare say, with even a slightly deeper-than-average knowledge of how communist takeovers historically play out, what we are seeing in America is pretty meat and potatoes…nothing novel or unique or special about it. The only difference is the superficial aesthetics and semantics of it all. Instead of “working class” or “proletariate” we have “people of color”; instead of the Jews or the Bourgeois we have “white people”; instead of the Reichstag we have Seattle; instead of book burnings we have digital purging. But the substructure is completely identical. The relationship between the draconian Covid-19 lockdown, the mobs of lower class looters, arsonists, and murderers, and calls to dismantle law-enforcement and replace them with communist-ideology enforcement bureaus which will inevitably answer directly to the communist political ruling class is no accident. It is merely the natural evolution of the practical and utilitarian application of the collectivist ideology which informs the communist, racial-marxist activities of the American political left.

Coronavirus and Lockdown Overreach: Why the science is both odious and irrelevant

It is unfortunate that those of us who point out the unnecessary misery and chaos which has arisen from the embarrassing State overreaction to Covid-19 are compelled to include the epidemiological data in our arguments, as well as a variety of quotes and perspectives from scientific and medical experts in the field. And it is unfortunate for a couple of reasons.

First, it conflates and combines what are really two separate issues, the virus itself and its medical impact, and the government measures taken to manage it. The virus itself and its medical implications for you and me should have nothing whatsoever to do with the government. And if you ask me why, I will kindly direct your attention to the US unemployment and debt data, the current stats on psychological trauma related to the lockdown, as the burning cars and tire fires in front of the White House.

Second, it presumes and implies the lie that the State would have been perfectly justified and within its scope to seize control of private property, and dictate the terms by which individuals associate and where they are allowed to do so; that it would have been perfectly acceptable for the State to immediately claim ownership of every man, woman, and child, to collapse the economy, to plunge the nation into ever greater heights of unplayable debt, and usher in an pandemic of psychological fallout that shall dwarf the coronavirus and every other pandemic which came before it.

I find it ironic, if not rather depressing, that people feel that they must resort to mortality and case fatality statistics, SIR models, and R rates in order to defend the philosophical axioms that make individual existence, and all of that scientific data, possible in the first place. Among these philosophical axioms is the inviolable (without disastrous consequences) truth of one’s sovereign ownership of one’s own Self and correspondingly of one’s own labor. Further, I submit that an appeal to the epidemiological data as proof that the State has acted incompetently is really, in fact, only proof that one does not understand the State at all, nor appreciate the fact that if the defense of freedom from tyranny and exploitation were left in the hands of the scientists, with their tenuous grasp on philosophical reasoning and their irrational devotion to ludicrous determinism as an explanatory basis for anything, documents like the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights never would have been written in the first place; and representative democracies throughout the world would never have seen the light of day.

The idea that I have to prove that the coronavirus is not particularly medically dangerous and represents no existential threat to man nor society in order to make a digestible and acceptable argument for ending the lockdown makes me, quite frankly, sick to my stomach. Neither the State nor any other agency or institution, nor man, woman, or child, may claim a right to my life, body, property, or associations, in any circumstance, ever, be it the coronavirus or a giant asteroid or a “war on terror”, a locust plague, a famine, a drought…anything. Government should never be in the business of risk management, because government, frankly, sucks at it.

The State’s answer to saving and protecting life means creating a situation in which life is not worth living. Risk management, the protection of individuals from the dangers of simply being alive, whether it involves climbing a ladder, flying on an airplane, driving a car, eating certain foods, engaging in certain sports, or navigating through the scary microscopic world of viruses and bacteria—whatever—requires nuance, an understanding and appreciation of context; it requires flexibility and temperance, a sense of proportion, and above all, an acceptance of the truth of the individual as a singular and singularly free-thinking agent, ultimately unattached to some collective ideation, and thus able to make efficacious choices in pursuit of a moral existence on his own—that is, that the individual in and of himself is naturally sufficient to his own existence.

Government understands none of this. There is nothing nuanced or delicate or nimble to the State. The State is blunt force…it is murder, it is flattened cities, it is prison, it is one-size-fits-all; it is bombs and guns and tear gas and jack boots and mushroom clouds, it is FORCE. Every drawing it makes looks like scribble, every photograph it takes is black, every song it composes is a shriek. The State knows nothing about protection, only SUBMISSION. It attacked the coronavirus with the same tool it uses to attack any problem, the only tool it has—a hammer. It cannot medically subordinate the virus…for that takes knowledge and experience and forethought and experiment; it cannot discern the at-risk from the unaffected and make public health recommendations accordingly, for that takes nuance and discernment and strategy and mercy and compassion. It cannot smash the virus into oblivion, for the virus is too small and elusive; and it cannot threaten the virus, for the virus cannot recognize its authority.

The State can, however, demolish the lives of the citizens it rules…it can “save” them by destroying them before the virus does; it can make the virus look like a party compared to the misery the State can produce. It can, within the span of a few short weeks, amass numbers of dead and dying that make the coronavirus look like a mole hill, rendering the virus completely innocuous by comparison.

How do you flatten the coronavirus curve?

By making a bigger curve out of the misery and destruction of the population you govern.

THAT is what the State is good at, and that is just what it has done.

So spare me the science; tie it to a rock and throw it in the lake. Show me a man who believes that you and I have a right to our own lives ONLY when the science shows that there is no longer any risk from the coronavirus, and I will show you a man who believes that you and I NEVER had any right to our own lives in the first place.

The “New Normal” is a Euphemism for Indefinite Lockdown: Why the lockdown will never end

If you have spent any time reading this blog, it is likely that you have an understanding of the nature of government, and by that I mean: the metaphysical foundations upon which government is built. If you are new to this blog, you may not yet grasp these foundations, so I will summarize them for you now. This will not be a detailed examination of the metaphysics of the State, but for the purposes of this post, it will give you a basic framework as context:

There are basically two kinds of metaphysical archetypes, Individualist and Collectivist. Individualist metaphysics allow for few if any variations of political iterations beyond the type which is pretty well obviously implied by the archetype itself. Almost exclusively Individualist metaphysics imply categorical voluntarism as the political iteration. Individualist metaphysics presume that man is ultimately a function of Himself…that is, His own ability to exist as Self, which implies Self-ownership (one’s body is owned by one’s Self, and therefore so is one’s labor), thus individualist metaphysics simply do not and cannot accommodate the existence of Coercive Authority as a means to organize humanity sociopolitically. There is no such thing as Government or the State within the politics which proceed from individualist metaphysics. All interaction and all value exchange are done ONLY at the level of the individual, and thus categorically voluntary value exchange is the only possible means of ANY value exchange of ANY kind whatsoever. The use of coercive violence to compel behavior does not exist in Individualist philosophy…at least, not a rationally consistent individualist philosophy. Coercive violence IS permitted in the case of preventing or mediating direct violations of individuals, but due to the nature of individualist ethics, this does not constitute a violation of the Self of the one violating his fellow man, and thus it is not a violation of voluntarism. I will not describe the full complexities of individualist ethics here, for obvious reasons.

Collectivist metaphysics on the other hand not only allow for the existence of governments and states but necessitate them, because the politics implied by collectivist metaphysics are rooted in violence (force) in order to compel behavior. In collectivist metaphysics a human being is not a function of himself—his own ability to exist as Self—but is instead a function of some essentially ethereal, fundamentally indescribable, inscrutable determinative force, which ultimately defies human understanding, because its infinite nature is is perfect and absolute whilst man’s is vulgar in comparison…graceless, rudimentary, and starkly finite. This determinative force can come in many iterations, an almost infinite variety or combination of them, really, from a deity, to deities, to mathematical or natural law, to evolutionary forces, biological forces, cosmological forces, ideals based on race, or culture, or national identity, tribalism, social class, economic class, mystical caste systems, etc., etc. It can even come in the guise of individualism, such as the Ideal of The People we see in the United States, where “People” is ostensibly meant to be the collection of INDIVIDUAL citizens, but, due to the a-priori presence of the State, really amounts to nothing more than another collective ideal into which individuals must be compelled by State violence.

Collectivist metaphysics, because they reject the efficacious existence of the individual, necessarily reject the efficacious existence of individual consciousness, and thus they reject the idea that the individual is fundamentally capable of making efficacious use of his volition and choice. Therefore has no ability to behave ethically as ethics are defined according to collectivist metaphysics, and thus he must be compelled by law—where the law is merely the sublimation of State violence…that is, the law gives ethical legitimacy to the State as it commits violations of individuals in the interest of the collective Ideal. Now, in the same way, the collective Ideal is the sublimation of the State, meaning that the Ideal, such as “The People” here in the U.S., doesn’t exist in any real way except as manifest by the State, itself. So the State IS the very tangible existence of the Ideal on earth. Thus, politically, the real point is to SACRIFICE the individual to the State, in service to the collective Ideal (the ideal being the determinative force which created all people and all things in the first place). And this is NEVER seen as some kind of ethical violation on the part of the State against the individual because in collectivist metaphysics, the individual doesn’t actually exist at all, remember? Consciousness, the Self, Will, Choice…these are all illusions at best, products of the unenlightened barbarian who is simply unable to grasp the truth that he is not actually HIMSELF at all. The “sinful nature” of the individual which is his fundamental existential core is his insistence that he EXISTS. Law and the State violence which accompanies and is corollary to Law is used as a means to ultimately eradicate the Self and bring the physical body into line with the Truth, which is the collective Ideal. Once a State is established, the State is all that matters because, metaphysically, the State is all that can be said to actually MEAN anything, BE anything, or DO anything of any practical value because the State is the ONLY legitimate incarnation/representation of the collective Ideal which is a function of the Determinative Force which created everything in the first place.

So what in the hell does any of this have to do with the current lockdown?

I’m glad you asked.

First, let me say that the reason I expend so much blog real estate on discussing the metaphysical roots of the State—the nature of the State—when discussing the coronavirus situation and the lockdown is that these roots of the State are where one shall find a truly meaningful explanation for what is going on in this ostensibly irrational lockdown situation. IF you understand the philosophical fundamentals upon which the State is established, then you can see that what is happening is not merely insanity run amok, or western narcissism and societal fracturing manifesting itself in response to some perceived global existential threat, or even simple political corruption perpetrated by the large number of “bad seeds” we’ve unfortunately elected to represent us. In short, if you understand the true and irreducible WHY, which is the philosophical WHY, then you can truly understand not merely what is happening now, but what will happen next—at least generally. Though what specifically will come next may reveal itself in an unforeseen way, you will readily perceive it as a necessary effect of what came before. And furthermore you will understand what is happening now in the overall context of not only the existence of the State under whose authority you find yourself at present, but the existence of the State since its inception, and indeed, the existence of ALL States. You may not be happy with what is happening, but at least you need not be confounded and frustrated at what seems like rank madness. You will see that all the “madness” actually makes sense, and you will understand that what is happening is really the only thing that could have ever happened.

Now, referring back to the metaphysical roots of government, we now know that based upon how the State defines individuals (as not fundamentally being themSelves and having no legitimate individual existence), that the State cannot actually do anything FOR people, but only TO them. The purpose of the People—the individual people that make up a given nation’s citizenry—is to be subordinated to the collective Ideal, and this means, in practicality, to the State. This is the whole point of law. Individual choice and volition is bypassed and obedience instead is the means by which the ethics of society shall be ultimately realized. What you want is irrelevant; that you OBEY is what matters to government. We can distract ourselves from the truth of our place and purpose with the bromide of rights and liberty and representative government and free elections, but since an option in any election is NEVER “no government”, then all elections are merely a reinforcement of the right of the State to exist. And the right of the State to exist implies the right of the State to pursue its purpose. And its purpose is to COMPEL individual behavior into collective action by force. Period. As a philosopher named John Immel once put it, “government is force”, and that is all you really need to know to understand government in its entirety. Thus, the only thing we are ever really voting for is the right of the State to rule us. Which makes voting itself an arrant rejection of our own volition and the efficacy of our own choices, and thus our own existence, making voting an exercise in abject Self-nullification. And we wonder why we have a deep State. Voting, ironically, implies the existence of a deep state (an unelected group of rulers who govern absolutely and indefinitely). The deep state does not exist to subvert voting; it exists as voting’s most perfect and rational conclusion.

This brings us to the salient question of this article: Why will the lockdown never end?

At this point, I’m sure you, being astute, have already discovered the answer, but I will give it here in the interest of rounding out my thoughts. The lockdown was instituted in service to the one thing that ultimately matters to the State, and represents its most basic and salient purpose:

Control.

The lockdown was applied as a means to exercise State control over the masses, which makes the fundamental reason for it the same as the reason for every other regulation. Control. Certainly the ostensible rationale was to protect public health, but this is merely a superficial apologetic for the underlying tyrannical interests of government. All State regulations have a veneer of “public interest” which is meant to imply that they are FOR the citizen, but when we remember that the term “public” is always in reference to the collective Ideal and that the State IS that Ideal incarnate, whatever is done for the public is really done FOR the State, and thus is done TO the citizen…that is, at the citizen’s expense.

Why could citizens not be left alone to deal with pandemic in their own way? Why was it assumed that the State MUST intervene with rule, regulation, and decree? Well, the reason is fundamentally found in the metaphysics. The reason man NEEDS government in the first place is that he is entirely insufficient to his own existence. The individual functions from a frame of reference of Self, of I, and instantiates this via volition and choice. But the Self is an imposter to reality according to collectivist metaphysics. Choice and Will and Self are sinful and wrong in that they contradict the State, and the State is rooted in the collective Ideal, and the collective Ideal is the Determinative Force, and THAT is what is the essence of reality is. Not the Self…not the individual. The citizens, left to themselves, will always fail, because they cannot understand reality, because they see if from an infinitely flawed frame of reference.

The reason for the lockdown, again, is control, as control is the reason for everything the State does TO the people it rules. Thus, if we ask the question “When will the lockdown end”, the answer is that it will only end when the end represents a greater measure of control. The government cannot relinquish control any more than the viper can stop slithering on the ground and begin to fly. It simply isn’t its nature. You will notice that every seeming compromise of the State with the people is merely an expression of government power…it is in the interest of power that the State makes any concessions, which makes “concession” merely a manifestation of power. Whenever the State relents here, it inevitably doubles down over there. The State never relinquishes control because control is what it IS, and it cannot BY itself DENY itself. Even if the lockdown were to be ended, what has happened? Wrecked economy, shattered societal cohesion, health crisis in every medical arena in addition to the coronavirus, explosions of alcoholism, drug use, suicide, domestic abuse, gutted lower classes, atomized populace, inner city chaos, all of which the government will predictably move in to manage, thus exponentially raising the level of State control to atmospheric heights. Add to that, we have set an irreversible precedent of plenary government control of everything and everyone in response to a crisis, which will be defined by the State, of course. Our government, in response to situations IT decides are sufficiently threatening, now openly presumes the right to dictate religion, social interaction, association, travel, commerce, business, and property ownership.

So when will the lockdown end?

At this point we can see that this question is entirely meaningless, and was always going to be meaningless. We could answer “never”, but that simply doesn’t do the profound backdrop of such a question any justice. It’s a facile answer…it’s dust. The lockdown is control, and control is the State. The lockdown is simply a necessary manifestation of existence as it is defined by collectivist metaphysics.

In other words, lockdown isn’t a lockdown, per se…

The lockdown simply is.

Lockdown Hell: Altruism Instantiated (Part TWO)

So, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, which one are you, “privileged” or “unprivileged”? Are you the sacrificed-to or the sacrificed?

Like I sad in part one of this article series, the answer when examined in the meta is: both and neither, meaning that at any give time, depending on the whims of the ruling class and on general political expediency, you could be the perfidious, mendacious, exploitative, oppressive, naturally and institutionally privileged one, who became privileged off the backs of the unprivileged which you exploit, and this according to your nature (you could never have chosen to be anything other than the oppressive monster you were born to be), and thus your property and your body shall be processed and commodified and sent as spoils to the “unprivileged” in the name of “social justice”; or you could be be the innocent victim, whose misfortune to have been born a certain way and into a specific collective identity determines that you shall ever be the unprivileged prey of the rapacious and dead-eyed privileged class. But never fear, the State shall swoop in on your behalf with its bristling guns, anxious bombs, and itchy trigger fingers to seized the collars of the petulant privileged, flip them upside down and empty their pockets straight into your gaping mouths.

But in the specific context of the coronavirus, the answer as to who is “privileged” and who is “unprivileged” is simple: If you are not in the at-risk group (elderly and/or with a comorbidity) then you are “privileged”. If you are, then you are “unprivileged”.

Notice the altruistic mantra of those vacant souls who defend the lockdown as necessary and justifiable—we can’t allow people to put other people at risk. Just because YOU may not suffer any significant effects of the coronavirus, doesn’t mean that we can allow you to infect those who might. This is markedly different from what we were first told, which was that this was an extremely deadly and dangerous virus that does not discriminate between men, women, or children, and we were regaled endlessly in the earlier days of the lockdown with horror stories of all manner of young and middle-aged people who were suddenly finding their birth date no hedge against the tiny, invisible enemy. Yet now the REAL data is in, and has managed to circumvent the editors of the Department of Propaganda and Psy-Ops, otherwise known as the mainstream media, and the findings of rational, objective, non-partisan experts are proving this pandemic to be nothing more than a relatively harmless influenza-like illness with mortality rates on par or even lower than that of the flu, and which not only DOES INDEED discriminate between the elderly and the young, but discriminates so severely that virtually no one under the age of 21 will even notice that they have it should they catch it, and anyone under 65 will almost certainly recover fully, with symptoms more likely to be mild than not. In the face of REAL facts and REAl data, which reveal that there is simply nothing to panic about, let alone worth destroying the economy and the lives of millions along with it through the seizure of all manner of life and property by the executives of the states who think that the best thing for them to do in service to public health is to channel Adolph Hitler and Joseph Stalin, the narrative has shifted from “we are all in this together, because we are all at risk”, to “we cannot allow YOU to put at risk those who are not so privileged as you to be young and healthy”. In other words, we have gone from “we all benefit from the lockdown” to the idea that the “privileged” must be rendered  ‘unprivileged’ so that we can all be equal and social justice satisfied. And since the State, being purely an agent of violence, coercion, and thus destruction, and is completely incapable by nature of fundamentally doing anything FOR man but only TO him, the only way to achieve equality is for the State to wreck life to the point where it is miserable for EVERYONE (except the ruling class, of course) EQUALLY, regardless of one’s choices or one’s particular natural circumstance.

In summary, as it pertains to the faux exigency in which we find ourselves, the socialist altruistic platitude has gone from “We are all in this together,” to “You must be sacrificed for the common good.”

END part TWO

 

“Freedom is the absence of risk.” -Tyrant

The government is not in the business of risk-management. This is an institution whose only real function and purpose is to extort behavior and money by means of its superior violence. This means that government represents the greatest risk to man on earth. The irony then that we task the government to keep us safe by managing our level of risk!

The State passes a child seat law,  but legalizes abortion, which destroys thousands of children every year. It demands that our children wear helmets when riding bicycles, then indebts our nation to the tune of trillions of dollars off the backs of the young who will be fleeced and extorted to pay that debt. It passes seatbelt laws and laws forbidding the sale of soft drinks of a certain size, then mass murders whole generations of men on battlefields in pointless foreign wars fought to preserve the financial interests of the plutocratic financiers. You can’t yell “fire!” In a crowded theatre, but you can run rank and object fear-mongering propaganda pieces about everything from a pandemic to presidential treason to the biological-based racism of the white man. The State can crown itself the sage and savior of civil rights while we all conveniently forget that this is the same State that upheld the interests of slave-holders and flesh-merchants for generations and legally enforced unholy segregation laws for generations after those slaves were finally free…but free only after a million men who never owned slaves and never profited financially or politically from slavery were maimed or murdered on battlefields over which the vast majority of politicians never shed a single tear.

Government risk-management? It would be the world’s funniest joke if it weren’t already the world’s most tragic tragedy.

The State’s ONLY  legitimate task, and even this fundamentally is quite specious, is to nurture a geopolitical context in which men are free from coercive force. Where they are free to conduct voluntary value exchange with one another without facing direct violations of person or property. The government can only be of any amount of benefit when its ONLY task is to discourage DIRECT violations of citizens—murder, theft, fraud, and invasion. Period. That’s it. It is a roaring lion; a blazing furnace; a hissing viper; a chained demon, which must be carefully watched with an ever vigilant and suspicious eye, and with hands on a whip which shall strike hard and fast at the first sign of  threat…at the mere hint of movement in the wrong direction. The monster can NEVER, EVER, under any circumstances be allowed to wander into our lives by some unconstitutional conveyance like “risk management”. That is a slippery slope which can only lead to tyranny. Think about it. If it’s the government’s job to keep you from getting sick, to keep you safe, then what part of your life are they not then entitled to have a primary say? What you eat; where you go; who you talk to; what you do for a living; how you travel; what groups you join…do you see how dangerous this is? Certainly isolating and sequestering at-risk populations is a good idea, but isolating the entire nation is NOT making a distinction between those at risk and those not. Everyone is a potential carrier and a potential victim at the same time. Which means that the government, in order to keep us “safe”, must control all of us. This is not public health, it is public slavery. The government has no constitutional right to prevent citizens from attending church, running their private businesses, patronizing businesses, going to parks, going to the beach, going to concerts, or traveling to other countries. The Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, privacy, property, and association. There is no disclaimer which says “except in case of public health crisis”.

Lockdown Hell: Altruism Instantiated (Part ONE)

One of the many interesting aspects of the unprecedented and disturbingly open, unabashed, and undisguised unconstitutionality being foisted upon the American public during the fabricated coronavirus crisis, is the novel iteration of the western sociopolitical zeitgeist, altruism. Altruism, in a nutshell, in its sociopolitical context, is the State-forced sacrifice of those deemed “privileged” to those who are deemed “under…or un-privileged”. This of course contradicts the very notion of “privilege” in that it by definition makes the “unprivileged” the greatest beneficiaries of the State’s coercive power, and the “privileged” the greatest victims…which renders the categories quite ironic, in that they are, in actuality, opposite. The ‘unprivileged” are significantly luckier than their privileged counterparts. But don’t strain your mind or credulity by attempting to square that circle. It cannot be done. The ethics of altruism are based on collectivist and determinist metaphysics which are by nature utterly irrational, and therefore in actuality inscrutable, which is why under the authority of the government agents of altruism you are not called to understand anything they say, but to simply obey. They are the enlightened philosopher kings, you are the unwashed barbarian masses. Comply or die. That’s the sum and substance of your usefulness to them and the total value of your existence, period.

When interpreting the categories of “privileged” and “unprivileged” according to our State overlords, we must understand that these, again, are ideas which are rooted in the inscrutable metaphysics of determinist collectivism, and consequently are interpreted according to mystical and thus fundamentally obscure notions, yet paradoxically they are quite  hyper-specific when physically dictated. At any rate, the general description is that being “privileged” or “underprivileged” has absolutely nothing to do with the “why” but only the “what” of human existence. In other words, WHY someone is categorized as “privileged” or “unprivileged” is simply “because they are”.  And by this I mean that it has nothing at all to do with the volitional choices and subsequent actions of the individuals so classified, or those related to the individuals so classified, such as parents or friends, with whom the “privileged” or “unprivileged” individuals may have been in some manner meaningfully related and thus so influenced. It has everything to do with one’s root existential state. That is, if you are “unprivileged” it is because you were born that way, and vice versa. “Privileged” and “unprivileged” is a product of your nature. That’s it. Thus, there isn’t anything you can do to manifest or could have done to prevent or ensure this natural condition. This is precisely why the State must implement equality and equity by force (legalized violence), and cannot rely upon citizens to work out their differences by their own choices and actions. No action or choice can change one’s very nature, for all actions and choices are a product of that nature, and thus all actions necessarily affirm and reinforce one’s “privileged” or “unprivileged” status. At the same time, ironically, or perhaps contradictorily, there is a sense of absolutist ethics which are secondary to the ethical primary of altruism, and these ethics are known as “social justice”, which is imbued and implied by one’s existential status as either “privileged” or “unprivileged”. The “unprivileged” are victims of some great and terrible injustice which though could not have been avoided as it is a function of their nature and not of any volitional action or consequence on the part of themselves or others nevertheless entitles them to ALL the legal benefits the State has the violent power to grant them in the interest of “social justice”, which again is the notion of existential and universal equality, which of course can never be achieved because the distinction between “privileged” and “unprivileged” is ALREADY, a-priori, itself existential and universal. Now, concordantly, the “privileged” are the evil perpetrators of all the injustice to which the “unprivileged” are so tragically subjected, and thus must be “held-accountable” and forced at State-gunpoint to “pay their fair share” in the interests of universal equality, despite the fact that there is no choice nor action which could have prevented the “privileged” from exploiting those who are “unprivileged”, or which could have prevented the “unprivileged” from actually becoming “unprivileged”, or themselves from becoming “privileged” in the first place…because, again, both groups are simply born that way.

And here again we see the inscrutable nature of collectivist metaphysics roaring to the forefront today with predictably disastrous consequences…those disastrous consequences being the complete undermining of the American Republic and the plenary and indefinite suspension of constitutional law, not to mention the irreversible and alarmingly substantial diminishing of the economy and faith in the nation on the whole in service to the “protection” of the public from the latest contrived boogeyman, but this one a phantom, which is supposed to be even more scary, called coronavirus. Once again do not try to apprehend the reasons, do not try to interpret or discern the meaning behind the actions of your government overlords, for it is not yours to know, because it is not you who has been given the “grace to perceive”. For that is reserved for those who have been called to rule. For you, on the other hand, it is forever a cloud of steam in your fist. The metaphysics of collectivism and the concordant ethics of altruism require only your submission. The “unprivileged” are required only to receive, the “privileged”, to sacrifice.

But which one are you?

Now that is a very interesting question. And the answer is predictably enigmatic, as I’m sure you understand: it depends. In the meta, you are both and neither…it is subjective, it is fluid. In context however it is terrifyingly empirical, objective, and corporeal.  And as we are talking about the manufactured coronavirus crisis, here I can provide a much more specific answer. Which I will do in part two.

END part ONE

The Trinity of Viruses: The State, the Citizen, the Coronavirus

Let’s say we give a pass to the blatantly tyrannical approach the United States government and state governments have taken in dealing with the coronavirus “crisis” in the early stages. Not that I would, personally, give any such pass. As far as I understand it, there is no asterisk at the bottom of the Constitution which allows for the wanton disregard of foundational liberties in response to a misunderstood and misrepresented respiratory ailment. But I suppose I understand the panic. After all, we in the United States are a narcissistic society of navel gazing cowards and altruistic fantasy-dwellers who are politically represented  by septuagenarian baby boomers who think they are entitled to eternal politcal power and eternal life, and who, like most baby boomers, are terrified of their own mortality, and who have become so drunk on the ever more potent twin fixes of coercive authority and unfathomable wealth that they are almost entirely unqualified for…well, anything.

So, we drink the elixir of mass panic and ignorance, rush from our homes screaming that the sky is falling, run back inside to our beds and pull up our blankies  and whimper and simper like children in a thunderstorm, and wait for the government to do what it does best—tyranny—to save us from the Chinese sniffles. Of course, there was much we could have done on our own without any of this overt government intrusion in our lives and businesses and families, but the only thing Americans are more afraid of than the coronavirus is personal responsibility and self-discipline.

Anyway, we might forgive the State for its rash, uninformed action seven weeks ago. There was only preliminary information about this virus, some very bad numbers and very inept and silly predictions from the Imperial College in London, along with the natural inclination of the State to shoot first an and ask questions later. But now we have the science…it has spoken. We have the testing, we have the data, we have OBJECTIVE EVIDENCE that the coronaviru simply does NOT represent any credible mass medical threat to the United States, and that the vast majority of people in our nation will experience symptoms so mild that they will never, and have never, sought any formal medical treatment for them. In other words, anyone not over the age of 65 or with some immunocompromising chronic health condition(s) has about as much chance of dying from SARS COV-2 as they do in a car accident on their way to a jelly bean factory. OBJECTIVELY there is NO MEDICAL reason for the ongoing social and economic lockdown in our nation. None. Medically speaking, the lockdown should end immediately.

In case you don’t want to take my word for it, here is a list of some of the experts I have researched in drawing my conclusions on this matter. I suggest you do a simple YouTube search and see for yourself. Each of of these men is literally among the most awarded, experienced, and successful in their field. There are no ringers here:

Dr. Michael Levitt, Professor of Computer Science and Structural Biology, Stanford University Medical School; 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for designing a computer model for complex chemical interactions

Dr. John Ioannidis, Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology and Population Health, Stanford University

Dr. John Giesecke, former State Epidemiologist for Sweden; Chief Scientist for the European Center for Disease Control; currently advising Swedish Agency for Public Health; currently advising Director General of the World Health Organization

Dr. Knut Wittkowski, former Head of the Department of Biolstatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design, Rockefeller University

Dr. David Katz, Founder and Director of Yale University’s Yale Group and Prevention Research Center

All of these experts agree on four basic premises, I have found. 1. That the widescale and indiscrimate lockdown measures were neither particularly effective nor reasonable  2. That these measures will most likely do much more harm in the long run than the virus ever will or can. 3. The lockdown will ultimately not have contributed much if anything at all to stopping the spread and evolution of the virus, and will almost certainly prolong the inevitable infection numbers and postpone herd immunity. 4. That the lockdown should be eased immediately because it represents an ACTUAL existential threat to public health

So, when I say that the lockdown measures are NOT medically necessary and that the coronavirus is not a credible threat to public health and that all politcal and media assertions that the lockdown measures are in the best interest of the citizen are complete lies, this is not my opinion. This is objective fact as stated by unrivaled experts in virology, epidemiology, mathematics, and chemistry, who have examined this virus from the point of view of years and years of experience and knowledges in dealing with just this kind of thing. In other words, it is settled science. You no longer have to convince anyone that the lockdown measures are a waste of time, are much more dangerous than the virus itself, and that it is little more than irrational paranoia and/or gullibility at this point which drives citizens to accept this tyranny and economic looting masquerading as public health policy.

So why are the lockdown measures still happening? Why are they not lifted now that we know that the reasons for them are no longer valid?

The answer is that the reason for thei lockdown was NEVER the virus, and so whatever science is saying about he virus has nothing at all to do with how the State is going to deal with it. At least, not THAT virus. You see, every law, act, regulaion, or decree which precedes from the State is NEVER ultimately designed to protect you from some danger or threat, be it a foreign enemy, or a neighborhood criminal, or a virus. Rather, these things are designed to protect the State from YOU. YOU are the disease it does not want ot contract. The lockdown is the mask IT dons to shield itself from the contagion known as the indivdivual citizen.

The virus arrived and It was advertised as an existential threat, based upon completely erroneous numbers along with general, plenary ignorance. The government, not an institution of reasoned action but of disproportionate overreaction, predictably burned the Constitution and then urinated on the fire, took out a sledgehammer and proceed to pound indiscriminately away at the econmomy and our civil rights. And we were okay with this because we were convinced that we would die…or, at least, would run out of toilet paper. Which, granted, is almost as bad. You see, people who are in fear for their lives will do things and allow things to be done to them which otherwise they would never fathom and never tolerate. Our politicians didn’t want us getting angry at their lack of action with respect this fake towering colossus of ravenous disease. You see, the rancher doesn’t try to speak rationally to the cattle when they become startled and threaten to stampede. Harvesting the brutes for meat and milk and leather is what keeps him rich and comfortable, and he does whatever it takes, sans actually speaking to the herd with words and ideas. Ideas and reason and recommendation are beyond the ability of dumb animals, but they do understand electric fences, and barbed wire, barking and snarling dogs, and gunshots. And ultimately the cattle are settled down…made passive. They are no longer a threat, and somehow, they feel more secure. In this way, with respect to the coronavirus and the unsettled simpering masses of human cattle, liberty was summarily sacrificed on the alter of political expediency. And the nation thanked them for it.

But now that thanks is wearing off, and the cattle are getting restless again. The lockdown measures continue, the almost overnight the collapse of the economy and the summary denial of basic rights of freedom of movement, association, and private property has led to skyrocking unemployment, business closures, a deluge of welfare applicants, drug overdose, sucide, domestic abuse, depression, anxiety, panic disorders, heart disease, cancer, child abuse, healthcare industry collapse, restaurant industry collapse, travel and tourism industry collapse, arrant cessation of life saving check-ups and medical procedures, criminality, and educational implosion, to name but a few. Allowing this to continue threatens the power and position of countless politicians. No one in government is safe. Trump’s reelection chances diminish with every passing day, lawsuits are being threatened and filed against government for civil liberty violations, and so to protect their status, politicians are being forced to make overtures towards ending the lockdown.

On the other hand, every epidemiologist and virologist worth a damn is predicting an increase in coronavirus cases and more deaths once people are allowed to reintegrate back into society. This has to do with the nature of such a virus, which must acquire a certain number of hosts before it tapers off and blends into the background haze of common viruses with which man must coexist during the winter months. The lockdown, instead of halting the virus, has simply postponed the inevitable. Politicians are hoping and praying for the miracle of a quick vaccine, and we should all be extremely wary of any vaccine which is rushed into service before the requisite time of 18 months to two years, which is the usual amount of time it takes to produce and research a vaccine for his kind of illness. Any vaccine which appears sooner is almost certainly spurious at best, and possibly dangerous, and is the result of nothing more than profit mongering and political expediency.

So the gonverment has a conundrum on their hands. How do you reintegrate society whilst keeping a virus which MUST inexorably spread from spreading.

The answer is: you don’t.

But if you are the government the answer is to walk the line of contradiction and hope that the American public is too stupid or too scared or too propaganzized (preferably all three) to notice that they are being played for fools. This nonsense about opening the economy “slowly” and “in stages” and “seeing what happens” and maybe “pulling back if we have to” and “opening business only if they comply with CDC regulations” and by color coding counties like they are doing here in Pennsylvania is NOT a medical strategy. I repeat, it is NOT A MEDICAL strategy. It is a political one. And moreover, it is a continuation of the unconstitutional revocation of basic American freedoms that has been occurring for the past seven weeks. The State wants to have its cake and eat it too. They want you breathing a sigh of relief with the idea of “returning to normal”, whilst NOT actually returning to normal becasue “normal” will be, in the words of Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, the “new normal”. Which means that the economy and society will reopen but not ACTUALLY reopen. These “strategies” are politcal theater; an illusion, designed to keep you both calm and in a state of fear…to create a dissonance in your emotions and psyche. The State does not care about you, only about itself. And this psy-ops game they are playing now with “reopening the economy” in baby steps is an indulgent massaging of their vanity. They are hoping against all reality that they can open the economy whilst keeping coronavirus cases on the decline. But this cannot be done, and so they must hope that somehow you will belive that that which cannot be done is nevertheless being done by your government. The govenrment for its own sake must open the economy, but for its own sake it ALSO must not. So this is what we get. An opening of the economy which is not really an opening.

Let us open our eyes and see clearly the trinity of viruses at play here: the virus of the State to you and me, the virus of me and you to the State, and the coronavirus to all of us. And let us understand that only one of these viruses is truly a threat to humanity.
