A Pandemic of Authoritarianism

Here are four bumper sticker/tee shirt sayings that I am proposing to publicly counter the pandemic of authoritarianism:

ACT LIKE FREE PEOPLE.

SAY “NO” TO MANDATES.

 ****

USE YOUR HEAD

OR GOV’t MEDIA WILL USE IT.

 ****

I AM AMERICAN.

I DON’T DO MANDATES.

****

“You’ve got to speak out against the madness”

 

Madness? Back-to-school mask mandate. Back to (idiotic) all-of-Illinois mask mandate (as of 8-30-21). Back-to-school and back-to-work vaccination mandates. Social distancing mandate. Open borders. Capacity limit mandate. Open borders. Vax mandate. “My body my choice.” Media generated insanity.

Fines, arrests, loss of business, loss of employment, isolation, alienation, exclusion, depression, despair, suicides. . . all brought on by a pandemic of authoritarianism.

I’ve been trying to understand the despotic Idiocracy we have been subjected to . . .  

Authoritarians. You know them, but not as leaders. They are the manipulators, handlers and those who talk down to you. Authoritarians feel they have a right to demand certain attitudes and behaviors from other people. They will tell you that there are “essential workers” and “non-essential workers”.

 

He’s a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him … attention must be paid. 

-Linda Lohman, Death of a Salesman, Arthur Miller

Linda Lohman’s anguished demand of her two sons – for them to understand what their father Willy is going through – could be our own demand of the government.

Like Linda, we see our loved one being treated so badly by a flippant authoritarian. In the play and now in real life, a man is told that his work, his life’s effort, is not “essential.” He is told to be quiet (mask up) and go home.

 Linda’s appeal is not for some virtue signaling abstraction of attention or dignity. I read it as a cry to recover the essential Willy before it’s too late.

 

Leaders will say “If this …then possibly that.” Leaders will give you scenarios and let you choose. Authoritarians will say “If you don’t do as I say, then . . .” (e.g., Democrats in office).

To get you to behave in the manner they wish, authoritarians will clout you with slipshod reasoning. Their lazy thinking is readily available to them: a dogmatic logic system of doing the exact opposite of what someone not in their political tribe thinks is best. Like with the terming of humans as “essential and nonessential”, authoritarians deem ‘outsider’ information “non-essential.”

Authoritarians seem to be left-brain dominant. They don’t appear to make use of the brain’s right hemisphere. They fail to put things into a broader context.

New information that could greatly benefit those under them is not passed into the brain’s right hemisphere. Their brain’s left hemisphere seems to reject anything that would disturb its lock box of prefab logic. They are adamant about what they don’t want to know (e.g., low-cost repurposed hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin WORK!)

Authoritarians (e.g., Chicago’s High Priestess of Intersectionality Mayor Lightfoot) are easily upset with challenges to their authority. They throttle communication down to one-way. They also project onto others (e.g., whites, conservative and Christians) their own authoritarianism (supremacy) to avoid using their sloppy reasoning out loud.

Authoritarians deal with you and I as objects – as square pegs that, with a hammer, fit into holes they carve out.  Authoritarians deal with you and I as data to be classified and placed into boxes marked “PCR tests” “COVID cases” “Hospital beds” “Poll numbers” “CO2 emissions”” Miles driven” and so on. (They want to track your vehicle’s mileage and your travels so they can tax you per mile and keep tabs on you.)

It is very unlikely that anyone could ever change authoritarian minds with evidence or logic or empirical science. Authoritarian intransigence produces a narrow focus. And such a narrow focus coupled with an apparent inability to process fear produces arbitrary and absurd responses. Have you noticed your world radically shrinking as you obey their arbitrary and absurd mandates?

Arbitrary response: mask mandates for healthy people who could avail themselves of hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin if they acquire COVID symptoms. BUT, Illinois’ obese Governor, who says not one word about low-cost repurposed protocols that keep people out of hospitals, says he’s concerned about hospital capacity. So, he tells us to “Mask Up”.

Absurdity: mask mandates (and Vax mandates) for healthy people, many of whom have had COVID and have acquired a natural immunity that is of much greater long-term benefit than what the current vaccines with limited efficacy and a terrible side effect profile offer.

There they are. Wearing masks. Disciples of J.B. Pritzker standing at the street corner in morning sunlight waiting for the school bus. To a person, the twelve masked high school kids I passed on my way home this week appeared – from their slumped brows and shoulders – to be miserable. They were distanced from each other and using their phones (likely) to find out what the alienated world thinks of them. Our kids have been muzzled and abused by the Lord Governor of Illinois.

Making a child wear a mask is child abuse. Mask are detrimental to their overall health. In a recent post, I mentioned that the governor of Illinois, J.B. “Jelly Belly” Pritzker, recently mandated that kids wear masks in school. No broad contextual science played a part in his decision. Just numbers based on inaccurate PCR tests.

The mask mandate appears to be a doubling down on scientism – left-brain dogma that dismisses any findings not in accord with its political beliefs.

On the front page of this Sunday’s (8-30-21) Chicago Tribune:

Pritzker basing stronger mandates on the science

But politics also come into play in how governor handles pandemic

“Jelly Bell” wants his authoritarianism to be reelected. Has he, up to recently, wanted to be seen in the same way as NY’s Andrew Cuomo -a self-styled pandemic authority and counselor par excellence whose performance is worthy of an Emmy?

No doubt, J.B. wants to be seen as handling the ‘pandemic’ with all kinds of concern and empathy for voters and especially for the unionized “essential workers” and for those who have submitted their body to experimental vaccines. But here is J.B.’s recent statement revealing his sloppy, antagonistic, and fascist reasoning:

“You don’t need to be an epidemiologist to understand what’s going on here. This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” the governor said.

*****

The certainty of “the science” we are told to follow reminds me of the dinosaur story.

One day a curator at a museum was giving a tour of the dinosaur exhibits. He pointed at one exhibit and said “And this creature is 9,000,006 years old.” The patrons oohed and awed. As the group walked to the next exhibit, one patron asked the curator “How do you know it is 9,000,006 years old. The curator replied “It was 9,000,000 years old when I started here six years ago.”

“The science” was the behind the geocentric dogma of the Catholic church. The church told their subjects that the sun, moon, stars, and planets all orbit the earth. “How can we be wrong when we are the right side of science!”

(No Pope Francis, getting the vaccine is NOT “an act of love.” It is an act of self-deception, demoralization, and abuse. Mandated vaccinations are a form of battery and rape.)

*****

In a recent post, I provided a report compiled by multiple doctors that said mask wearing is harmful for children. As a parent, I would add that making a child wear a mask is not only physically unhealthy, it is also socially and psychologically unhealthy.

Humans are social creatures. We read facial expressions for feedback, for the understanding of another. The obscuring and distancing produced by masks, or by smartphones and electronic technology for that matter, I see as extremely harmful to a human’s social, emotional and physical well-being.

 

“If you smile at me, I will understand

‘Cause that is something

Everybody everywhere does in the same language . . .

-Wooden Ships, Crosby, Stills & Nash (Woodstock)

 

Masking has a demoralizing effect upon children. As children watch their parents submit themselves to arbitrary and absurd mandates, children learn that rationality, intuition, common sense, science, and truth are all subject to those in power.

The center of power is NOT the center of truth.

Illinois is NOT a hospital. I am NOT a patient of Illinois or of J.B. Pritzker or of the CDC or of Joe Biden. J.B. Pritzker, the CDC, and Joe Biden are NOT my doctors. They are not my spouse or my priest. J.B. Pritzker, the CDC, and Joe Biden and the state media are NOT my conscious.  Neither J.B. Pritzker, the CDC or Joe Biden are Lord. I do not have to obey any of their unjust and inhuman mandates couched in “public health” jabs.

Any government forcing masks or vaccines is a rejection of science, a disregard for individual human rights and a tyrannical over step of their boundaries.

Who is liable for the deleterious effects of the mandated jab? Not those who mandate or push Vax mandates. Not Joe Biden or Anthony Fauci or the CDC or J.B. Pritzker or pharmaceutical companies. Employers and doctors (and now the Pope?) are liable.

It was always up to you. Defy the authoritarians. Do not send your child to a public school in a mask. Better yet, do not send your child to a public school.

Authoritarians? You will also know them by their variants.

 

Fear-mongering Variant:

By now you’ve heard it almost all. Delta variant. Delta+ variant. Lambda Variant.

During the long march of scientism, we will continue to hear from the bio-medical authoritarian Anthony Fauci: “the what’s-next variant may be a huge problem if we don’t get people vaccinated.” The bio-medical state apparatchiks and their media collaborators continue to spread a pandemic of fear using the fear-mongering variant of authoritarianism.

No Anthony Fauci, “our common enemy “is NOT a virus that can be treated with readily available protocols that you readily dismiss in favor of an untested globalist-finagled vaccine. Our common enemy are the lies your authoritarianism demands we submit to. And how is it not fascism for government to coerce employers to vaccinate their employees?

Look. We will never stop tropical storms no matter how much tax-payer money fuels the wild fires of climate science. And we will never stop COVID variants. So go on with your life.

“Public Health” tyranny can be resisted with a readily available protocol – living within a sphere of truth.

“The world is gradually waking up to your absurd, arbitrary and fallacious approach in presenting concocted facts as ‘scientific approach.’ While the WHO flaunts itself like a ‘know it all,’ it is akin to the vain Emperor in new clothes while the entire world has realized by now, the Emperor has no clothes at all.”

Cut-and-run Variant:

Seven months into the OBiden regime and we see what happens when evil is released and good is restrained: chaos reigns.

“Chaos was always priced in?” Democrat operative George Stephanopoulos’ posed the question to OBiden during a recent interview. Biden’s foreign policy disaster in Afghanistan had hit the fan. Joe Biden responded affirmatively to Stephanopoulos.

Apparently, a cut-and-run strategy of pandemonium leading to American causalities and deaths is just another cost factor for the OBiden regime. Creating the largest hostage situation in history, apparently, is just another box checked for his Leftist regime. Hostages, after all, are only humans. OBiden’s strategy of pandemonium was already evident before his Afghanistan debacle.

The regime’s open borders policy has several devastating effects on Americans. While one head of the beast – the bio-medical authoritarian head – preaches salvation from COVID with mask mandates, social-distancing and FDA-finagled vaccines, illegal immigrants are being allowed to cross the border with their variations of COVID. American citizens be damned.

The value of your vote, your job opportunities and your physical security are of no consequence to dufus authoritarians. Being in charge, being in power is what matters to authoritarians of every variant.

The guy in charge of Afghanistan’s withdrawal, via a stolen election committed by a cabal of local authoritarians, is also the guy in charge of vaccine policy. That means that you and I are just tick marks on OBiden’s cut-and-run playbook.

Mother of Slain US Marine Exposes What Biden Did To Her Family | Populist Press 2021 ©

 

“To hell with you” Variant:

Nancy Pelosi is pushing the Soylent Green New Deal ‘infrastructure’ bill. The bill will eat Americans alive. Its passage will produce hyperinflation that will reduce your ability to purchase food, gas, and necessities. You’ve already noticed the increased costs since Obiden took office. The bill will also place the burden of national debt on our children and grandchildren, making them slaves to a devalued dollar. It will also expose our nation to the Chinese Communist Party. All for the tokenism of the Green New Deal.

 

The Misogyny Variant:

We’ve seen for the unctuous Joe Biden, his slimy son Hunter and the pompous Andrew Cuomo that women are objects to be sniffed, fondled and used for pleasure. Now we see, in Joe Biden’s case, that when women are not in close range in order to smell, touch, and fondle them, OBiden hands them over to the Taliban, Sharia Law, burkas, rape and mutilation.

Leftitarians turn women over to other authoritarians to mask and muzzle them into submission.

(Leftitarians are also OK with medical apartheid –institutionalized segregation of the vaccinated and unvaccinated.)

 

*****

It was always up to you. Defy authoritarians. Defy the mandates they impose. You don’t need to wear a mask unless you consider yourself vulnerable: you are very old or you are health compromised or you are obese, like J.B. Pritzker.

Masking

The healthy DO NOT need to wear a mask. Those who have had COVID do not need the mask or a vaccine. Live in the sphere of truth and defy the social engineering egocentric mandates of the authoritarian powers of this world.

 

One last thing to consider. There is a question asked of those about to be baptized:

Do you renounce the evil powers of this world which corrupt and destroy the creatures of God?

Jim Jr. started his internship at COVID Products in 2020.  He began as a salesman offering masks, cleansers, and social distance apps. After he met a sales goal of $200K in 2022, he was transferred to advertising. Six years later he became the science anchor of the 24/7 COVID Report. His mechanical engineering degree gave him the necessary credibility, he felt.

“Today’s COVID report is brought to you by Phantastic Pies. You have to eat them to believe them.”

Before his stint at 24/7 COVID, Jim Jr. worked at a local TV station. He came on with his COVID report after the weather and traffic reports.

 “The Psi COVID variant this week has a chance of being 80% doubly dangerous. Look at this map of the Chicago area.

“The green dots are those who have had their fifth booster shot. The blue dots are those who have only had four booster shots. But this mass of large red dots is the unvaccinated. Let’s zoom in on one using Channel Eight’s Heart Beat Tracker. Live video is being provided by a next-door neighbor.

“Folks, that is Mary Lou Stebbins in Hinsdale, Ill. Mary Lou has yet to be vaccinated. So, avoid 217 Burton St. and all contact with Mary Lou.”

At noon, Jim turned over the 24/7 COVID Report to his young intern Stephanie Lour. He then went home to his wife Ann Marie.

Ann Marie greeted him at the door with a masked kiss, replicating the 24/7 COVID Report promo performance. Ann Marie, a devoted wife, always hoped for an unmitigated kiss in broad daylight. But Jim Jr. made sure that nobody ever saw them kissing without the proper PPE – even at their wedding. The unmitigated kiss – a peck on the cheek – would occur after Jim Jr. had ingested four properly prepared Martinis and was on his way up to bed at 7 pm.

In the afternoons, between the door kiss and the Martini kiss, Jim would grab his properly prepared Martinis and head to the basement – the COVID Command Center, as he called it. He had Ann Marie bring his meals there. “My work is too important to fiddle around with my time. Millions of lives are at stake!”

That state of affairs is what Ann Marie confided to her friend Julie at Zims’ Wine Bar. Ann Marie was fairly sure that her husband did not participate in pornography. But Jim never confessed his love for her. As far as life and love go, she told Julie, the newly restored Zoltar was Jim’s center of attention. She often watched him as he put coins in and Zoltar fed him fortune cards.

The fortune telling machine had been father-to-son handed down. Zoltar was Jim Jr.’s inheritance after his father passed. Senior made sure it stayed in the family. Zoltar had been placed on the auction block when the arcade closed down. Jim Senior was there to outbid the rest.

*****

Julie, seeing Ann Marie so miserable, counseled her friend to leave to Jim. “What man loves a machine more than his wife?” But Ann Marie balked at leaving Jim Jr. She decided that she would change her husband’s preoccupation. She had a plan.

Ann Marie began to dress as a gypsy fortune teller. She had Jim Jr. sit down and she pretended to tell him his fortune. But Jim Jr. wasn’t interested. “I am a man of science”, he told her.

*****

One afternoon Jim Jr. ran up the basement stairs yelling “I’ve got it!” Ann Marie ended her phone call to Julie and said “What?”

“I will produce a vaccine that not only protects from the common cold coronavirus but also makes the recipient a valued customer at major stores, major everything!”

“And how are you gonna do that?” Ann Marie asked.

“Simple,” Jim Jr. responded. “You see my report on TV. There are devices that detect a person’s unique heartbeat. I will vaccinate people with my proprietary nano-particle that pulses with a unique code. I’ll call it . . . I’ll call it BlingBeat.

Ann Marie offered a “gimme a break” smile

“Zoltar gave me the idea.” Jim handed Ann Marie a card: A fool and his money are soon parted.

“You see”, Jim continued his sales pitch, “Subscriptions to BlingBeat will be renewed with each booster shot. There is a new booster shot for each COVID variant. We’re only at the Psi variant. There will be endless variants because pharmaceutical companies want endless profits. I am . . . I mean, we are . . .hooking our wagon to that gravy train.

“There will be an initial outlay of money – I’ll get a business loan – but I see a revenue stream that doesn’t end!” Imagine! For the price of Starbucks coffee for a year people will have a subscription to a second heartbeat that gets them into stores, sports events, theaters, the works!”

Jim Jr. began to pace back and forth and then stopped abruptly with a laugh. “When the CDC runs out of Greek letters, I’m guessing they’ll have to use male and female names like the weather folks do for tropical storms . . . With my 24/7 COVID Report, BlingBeat will have name brand recognition. People trust a science anchor.

Jim ordered another martini from Ann Marie and went back down to his Command Center. He had some phone calls to make.

*****

Weeks later, Jim Jr. came home as usual and headed to the basement with his martini. He fed a coin into Zoltar and received the following card: If at first you don’t succeed, take another stab at it.

Jim Jr. always felt that Zoltar always had the best fortunes just for him. It was in the family, after all. And this card insured that. Zoltar told him to keep trying.

Jim had asked Ann Marie to be the beta site for his BlingBeat. But she refused. “Try it on your intern, not me!”

But Jim Jr. was resolute. Ann Marie had to be the beta site. She would never take him to court. “She worships me, doesn’t she?”

So that night, at 3 am, Jim Jr. wakes up at the usual time to get ready and head off to the TV station. Before he gets out of the bed, though, he reaches under the bed and pulls out a syringe and a vial. He drew the vial’s content into the syringe. With a quick swipe of an alcohol swab, Jim jabbed Ann Marie in the arm.

“Ouch! What the  . . .?”

“What’s the matter honey? A bad dream?

“I just felt a sharp pain in my arm. Why do I smell alcohol?

“I spilled some martini last night.”

“That doesn’t smell like martini . . .can you get me a glass of water? My mouth is dry.”

“Yes. Don’t get up. Lay still. You must have been sleeping on your arm.”

*****

A few weeks later, Ann Marie went shopping for the week’s groceries at Bill’s Food Market. As she was walking in, the cart kid said “Hello Mrs. Jones.” That was the first odd thing she noticed. Why would that kid know my name?

She walked in and the store manger greeted her. “Good morning Mrs. Jones. Welcome to Bill’s Food Market.” That guy never said hello to me before.

She walked through the produce section and noticed blue lights beginning to blink on a small dispenser as she neared the bananas. A coupon popped out: Fifty cents off a pound Mrs. Jones.

She walked down another aisle. The same blinking blue lights greeted her as she approached other food items. As before, a coupon popped out of the dispenser with her name attached. It must be some new sales gimmick, she thought. But something strange was also happening.

As she walked down each aisle, folks would look at their smartphones. Then they would say “Good morning Mrs. Jones.” What the  . . .?

What Ann Marie didn’t know was that Jim Jr. had acquired a business partner. Zack created the BuyinaryBeat heartbeat scanner. (Zack wasn’t crazy about BlingBeat. So, the name was changed.)

Bill’s Food Market was the beta site for the BuyinaryBeat scanner. Jim Jr. told Zack that Ann Marie shopped there every week. Both Jim Jr. and Zack were pleased with the beta test results. Now production could start.

*****

Months later, the BuyinaryBeat scanner had been installed in a variety of stores and venues including sports stadiums, hospitals and even churches. The BuyinaryBeat serum was being injected into arm after arm. The persons receiving the vaccine were told that they were not only protected from the latest COVID variant but that they would now receive exclusive consumer privilege. And, they would not show up on the 24/7 COVID Report map.

*****

Ann Marie liked the attention she was getting at the drug store, the dress shop, Zim’s Wine Bar, and elsewhere. But she couldn’t figure out what had changed. She knew she didn’t have some aura about her that brought out the attention of others. Something had changed . . .She rubbed her itching arm.

*****

Jim and Zack’s business Buyinary BuyWays took off. Jim Jr. continued the 24/7 COVID Report while the business was growing. At one point he left the TV station and incorporated his COVID report into a 24/7 infomercial. With former intern Stephanie, he was hawking the benefits of the BuyinaryBeat serum.

After five years, the partners decided to go public. The IPO made them millionaires. The night of the offering, the two of them celebrated until two in the morning. Jim Jr.’s head was spinning as he came through the door of his house.  Ann Marie must be in bed. I’ll pour myself a martini and check in with Zoltar.

Jim Jr. half-hobbled down the basement stairs, spilling the martini. He took a penny out of his pants pocket and dropped it in the coin slot. Zoltar lit up and said, “Here you are, COVID Master.” A card popped out. Jim Jr. set the martini down and read it.

Your reality check is about to bounce.

“Huh? That’s not like you Zoltar.”

He put another penny in the coin slot. “Here you are, COVID Master.” Another card popped out.

You will soon have an out of money experience.

“C’mon Zoltar! Get with the program!” He put another penny in the coin slot. “Here you are, COVID Master.” But this time the machine did pop out a card.

“I’ll deal with you tomorrow.” With that he finished his martini and went up to bed.

Ann Marie was not in bed. Her clothes, her things, were gone.

*****

After the stock market closed the day of the IPO, Ann Marie, with Julie’s help, moved her things out of the house. She threw the PPE and their wedding picture into the trash. She went down to basement to gather up her laundry. As she walked by Zoltar, the machine pushed out a card: All’s well that ends well.

Ann Marie divorced Jim Jr. She received a substantial monetary settlement for her share of Buyinary BuyWays. Her attorney had told the judge that Ann Marie had been raped by the jab and that Jim had used her as a guinea pig. Jim Jr. was later brought up on charges of domestic abuse. “Other charges are pending”, said the DA.

Ann Marie went on to use the bulk of her divorce settlement money to produce an anti-BuyinaryBeat serum. Its effect was to null the nano-particle Jim Jr. had planted inside vaccines. She had been getting a lot of attention with the BuyinaryBeat vaccine her husband had pumped into her veins. But it wasn’t the attention she needed and wanted. Jim’s arcade life wasn’t for her.

“The world is gradually waking up to your absurd, arbitrary and fallacious approach in presenting concocted facts as ‘scientific approach.’ While the WHO flaunts itself like a ‘know it all,’ it is akin to the vain Emperor in new clothes while the entire world has realized by now, the Emperor has no clothes at all.”

“Mask Wearers of the World, Unite!”

“In everyone there is some willingness to merge with the anonymous crowd and to flow comfortably along with it down the river of pseudo-life. This is much more than a simple conflict between two identities. It is something far worse: it is a challenge to the very notion of identity itself.” ― Václav Havel

This past year-and-a half, did you “merge with the anonymous crowd” and “flow comfortably along with it down the river of pseudo-life”? Did you follow the flotilla of Pied pipers mesmerizing you with “the science”?

Did you socially distance, put on a mask, and have your business and office and church shut down? Did you believe that the PCR tests are accurate (Guess why there are so few cases of the flu reported)? Did you submit your body to be a lab experiment for the mRNA vaccines?

Did you go along with “the science” to get along? Did you go along with “the anonymous crowd” because, per the head mocker of the Biden regime, “if you’re not vaccinated, you’re not nearly as smart as I thought you were,”.

Do you now equate the loss of freedom and choice as a loss of your identity as a human? Or, are you still wanting “to flow comfortably along with it (the loss of your identity) down the river of pseudo-life”? Are you OK with diktats and lacking individual will? Are you OK supporting the automatism of a totalitarian system?

Now, you may say to me “it was out of fear of COVID that I persuaded myself to follow the mandates”, or, “It was out of fear of giving someone COVID that I submitted to the mandates’, or, “it was out of fear of litigation that I shut down my business, my church.”

Or, was it out of fear of thinking for yourself, acting individually, and rebuffing the diktats coming down from the bio-medical regime through the state media?

The alignment of the power – globalists, oligarchs, techno-utopians, politicians, the media, the Pope, and the forces of evil – against the powerless has been the impetus for my dissenting posts over the past year and-a half. I have opposed the schizophrenic CDC guidelines. I have opposed authoritarian mandates. I have opposed tyranny – including medical tyranny. I have opposed the lies being fed us. I have opposed the sowing of fear. And, I will oppose the Great Reset mandates – from the powerful to the powerless – coming our way.

What is coming our way is a thousand times more tyrannical than what we’ve seen the past year. The “river of pseudo-life” will flow with blood. If my words have seemed harsh, critical and uncompassionate, if it appears that I am calling out people for their past behavior, then please understand. This post is meant to be a wakeup call. It is meant to shake you out of a COVID-induced paralysis to face the growing nightmare.

*****

As a nation, we didn’t start out stupefied and powerless. But over time we gave in to soft tyranny (Tocqueville). Out of fear, we have exchanged our freedom (and our identity) for false security.

Last century, for example, we accepted the New Deal and the tyranny of centralized planning – the welfare state and overreaching government. Wasn’t New Deal tyranny acceptance based on (economic) fear? Wasn’t New Deal tyranny acceptance also a “well-meaning” acceptance by the people?

Today, fearful and well-meaning people, have become OK with the hard-core tyranny of censorship. Those behind the Great Reset love these people. Behind the fascia of Build Back Better is (1984’s) Room 101:  Besmirch Bludgeon Begone.

As we have seen, much of the country has fallen prostrate before mandates and “guidelines” out of fear of a so-called “public-health crisis”. Yet, COVID19 is a variation of the common cold and has a recovery rate of over 99.8 % for most people. Early outpatient treatment is recommended.

The American Journal of Medicine now (Jan. 2021) now (finally!) recommends Hydroxychloroquine, Azithromycin, and Zinc for the treatment of Covid 19 outpatients. Had this been the protocol used in Jan. 2020, many lives could have been saved. But the powerful – Anthony Fauci, the CDC, Francis Collins and the NIH, Bill Gates, and big pharma – had other plans for the American people.

There has also been fear of litigation if not abiding by the mandates and “guidelines”. Behind all the fear is the fear of disobeying the powerful alignment that stands against the powerless.

To assuage fears, there are those who have chosen to “merge with the anonymous crowd” and have chosen to live the (COVIDian) lies given them. They have chosen “to flow comfortably along with it down the river of pseudo-life”.

The COVIDian lies include the following:

Mask wearing is effective to stop the spread of COVID; not wearing a mask puts yourself and others at risk; children must wear a mask to school.

A group of physicians from Germany, Poland and Austria, concluded that the wearing of nose and mouth coverings by children leads to an increase in carbon dioxide levels in both inhaled and exhaled air while wearing a mask.

“We suggest that decision-makers weigh the hard evidence produced by these experimental measurements accordingly, which suggest that children should not be forced to wear face masks.”

Social distancing works to stop the spread of COVID; shutting down businesses and churches stops the spread of COVID.

(Idiotic. Distance yourself from the CDC.)

You need the vaccine to protect you from COVID. It is safe and effective.

You need the vaccine to protect yourself even if you have acquired immunity.

(The CDC and Big Pharma won’t talk about acquired immunity. They have a vaccine to sell.)

You need the vaccine to protect yourself. Other protocols don’t work.

You need the CDC to tell you how to think about COVID.

You need Vitamins C and D, the mineral Zinc, exercise, sunshine and a good CDC-free doctor.

Do you realize that you now spend every waking hour thinking about what government wants and how it effects your freedom?

December, 1989. Václav Havel was elected president of Czechoslovakia. On New Year’s Day, 1990, he gave his first “state-of-the-nation” address to the country on national television.

“New Year’s Address to the Nation,’ January 1, 1990

“For forty years on this day, you heard, from my predecessors, variations on the same theme: how our country was flourishing, how many millions of tons of steel we produced, how happy we all were, how we trusted our government, and what bright perspective were unfolding before us.

I assume do did not propose me for this office so that I, too, would lie to you.

Our country is not flourishing. . .. 

But all this is not the main problem. The worst thing is that we live in a contaminated moral environment. We fell morally ill because we got used to saying something different from what we thought. We learned not to believe in anything, to ignore each other, to care only for ourselves. Concepts such as love, friendship, compassion, humility, and forgiveness lost their depth and dimensions. . .. The previous regime . . . reduced man to a force of production and nature to a tool of production. . .. It reduced gifted an autonomous people to nuts and bolts in some monstrously huge, noisy, and stinking machine, whose real purpose was not clear to anyone. . ..

As I have observed the growing fascism under the alignment of the powerful with the Biden regime and its invocation of dystopia and dehumanization akin to what Havel described in his address, the title of Václav Havel’s 1978 essay, The Power of the Powerless, intrigued me.  

The essay, among others found in The Power of the Powerless: Citizens Against the State in Central Eastern Europe, explain the features of Soviet-type totalitarian systems of power as compared to the West (A comparison soon to be invalid if people continue “to flow comfortably along . . . down the river of pseudo-life).

Havel’s description of “the post-totalitarian system” he is witness to is shockingly similar to current state of affairs in the U.S.:

“The post-totalitarian system touches people at every step, but it does so with its ideological gloves on. This is why life in the system is so thoroughly permeated with hypocrisy and lies: government by bureaucracy is called popular government; the working class is enslaved in the name of the working class; the complete degradation of the individual is presented as his or her ultimate liberation; depriving people of information is called making it available; the use of power to manipulate is called the public control of power, and the arbitrary abuse of power is called observing the legal code; the repression of culture is called its development; the expansion of imperial influence is presented as support for the oppressed; the lack of free expression becomes the highest form of freedom; farcical elections become the highest form of democracy; banning independent thought becomes the most scientific of world views; military occupation becomes fraternal assistance. Because the regime is captive to its own lies, it must falsify everything. It falsifies the past. It falsifies the present, and it falsifies the future. It falsifies statistics. It pretends not to possess an omnipotent and unprincipled police apparatus. It pretends to respect human rights. It pretends to persecute no one. It pretends to fear nothing. It pretends to pretend nothing.”

Havel’s “post-totalitarian state” of 70’s Communist Eastern Europe was totalitarian but radically different from the totalitarian dictatorships of Hitler and Mao. Havel’s biographer, John Keane, described Havel’s “post-totalitarian state” this way:

Within the system, every individual is trapped within a dense network of the state’s governing instruments. . .themselves legitimated by a flexible but comprehensive ideology, a “secularized religion”. . . .it is therefore necessary to see, argued Havel, that power relations. . .are best described as a labyrinth of influence, repression, fear and self-censorship which swallows up everyone within it, at the very least by rendering them silent, stultified and marked by some undesirable prejudices of the powerful.

Keane’s description brings us back to the epigram of this post. The “willingness to merge” statement is from The Power of the Powerless. It follows from the shop-keeper example and questions Havel poses:

The manager of a fruit-and-vegetable shop places in his window, among the onions and carrots, the slogan: “Workers of the world, unite!” Why does he do it? What is he trying to communicate to the world?  Is he genuinely enthusiastic about the idea of unity among the workers of the world? Is his enthusiasm so great that he feels an irrepressible impulse to acquaint the public with his ideals? Has he really given much thought to how such a unification might occur and what it could mean?

What if the shopkeeper takes down his sign (takes off his mask) and begins to speak up?

Havel explores the potential of the “powerless” with an examination of the nature of power. Havel speaks of a profound crisis of human identity brought about by “living within a lie.” He speaks of political import: the individual’s moral choice for truth and in the creation of an independent life – a sphere of truth – for society even as every individual is trapped within a dense network of the state’s governing instruments. (I would add: The center of power is not the center of truth.)

(This essay has much to consider at this moment in time. It is available for download below.)

“If the main pillar of the system is living a lie, then it is not surprising that the fundamental threat to it is living the truth. This is why it must be suppressed more severely than anything else.”
― Václav Havel, The Power of the Powerless

“In an era when metaphysical and existential certainties are in a state of crisis, when people are being uprooted and alienated and are losing their sense of what this world means, this ideology inevitably has a certain hypnotic charm. To wandering humankind it offers an immediately available home: all one has to do is accept it, and suddenly everything becomes clear once more, life takes on new meaning, and all mysteries, unanswered questions, anxiety, and loneliness vanish. Of course, one pays dearly for this low-rent home: the price is abdication of one’ s own reason, conscience, and responsibility, for an essential aspect of this ideology is the consignment of reason and conscience to a higher authority. The principle involved here is that the center of power is identical with the center of truth.”
― Václav Havel, The Power of the Powerless: Citizens Against the State in Central-Eastern Europe

“Truth must be integrated with love; morality is not whole without it. Love is the greatest strength of the powerless. Unity founded on love will never be coercion; power guided by love will never be violence. Love is all-powerful and will even overcome hatred. And only love can do this!”
― Václav Havel, The Power of the Powerless: Citizens Against the State in Central-Eastern Europe

This week I received the following message from my Illinois state representative:

Yesterday, Governor JB Pritzker issued a statewide mask mandate for K-12 students. In doing so, he superseded the decisions being made at the local level, and silenced the voices of students, parents, educators and administrators. 

This authoritarian mandate is the latest attack on truth and humanity. As most people now know, masks are ineffective against the spread of COVID. Worse, as detailed above, masks are dangerous for children to wear. Do not send your children to school in masks. Masks are physically and emotionally harmful for children to wear. Defy the lie.

Other lies we are told to accept:

Critical Race Theory (CRT)

America is a racist country.

If you are white you are racist.

Diversity, Equality and Inclusion. ((DEI) is meaningless virtue signaling of Woke ‘virtues.’ Consider that Chicago elected a DEI intersectional black-gay-woman as mayor. Chicago is referred to nationally by the shooting and killings that take place in its city limits. Chicago’s mayor Lightfoot, in her DEI capacity, absolves herself of any responsibility by saying “All roads lead to COVID.” Others like her say, “All roads lead to climate change.”

DEI is a tyrannical imposition on people and business and, for the most part, is racist in its application.)

The hugely priced Infrastructure Bill is about physical infrastructure. (The bill contains massive amounts of tax-payer money for social engineering. Its passage will place America’s children and grandchildren under a huge burden of debt, devalue the dollar and will expose America to its number one enemy – China.) Also, are you OK with having your mileage taxed?
