Who could have guessed that the Floyd protest was the best Coronavirus vaccine? The same people that warned us that the virus is the deadliest plague and staying-at-home is the only escape, now commanded us to march amongst throngs, shoulder-to-shoulder against police! It appears they have the dreadful pandemic under their command, on tap: now it’s coming, now it’s not. Not every demo has the same curative potential: it is very dangerous to demonstrate against lockdown, but it is perfectly safe to demonstrate against police, they say.
Rarely has the gear-change been so smooth. Yesterday it was lockdown, today – let it burn. The masks they insisted we should wear have also changed their meaning. It is not the amulet against the plague anymore, a piece of cloth magically scaring the virus away; now it is the insignia of revolution. After the colour-coded Orange, Purple, Green revolutions; after the flower-coded Rose and Tulip revolutions, welcome to the Mask Revolution!
The mask is a sign that you accept the official Covid story for the real thing, just as wearing garlic implies you believe the vampire attack is imminent. Covid is the New Normal; now it is integrated with the Woke narrative. Beautiful white faces at the demo are protected with masks; handsome black faces do not need masks, for it is obvious they are on the right side.
The masks are necessary to cover the defeat. Coronavirus didn’t work. The virus has disappointed its admirers. Our colleague Anatoly Karlin promised Corona Will Kill Millions & Crater the World Economy. Oops! Not only did his beloved Corona-chan not kill millions, it could not even, in many places, provide its fair share to improve on last year’s death count. Look for example at Norway’s death toll. WithCorona (in 2020), fewer people died than without Corona in any one of the preceding five years. And Corona didn’t contribute much to the total, the freeloader hussy!
Norway went through a very painful lockdown to achieve this unnecessarily low record-breaking toll. Its neighbour Sweden had no lockdown at all. Swedes were and are free to move, to go to the café, to work, to play. Swedes did not stop the normal course of their lives. And the result is fine. Swedes died this year with Corona like they did without Corona in, say, 2018.
Corona added – not millions, not thousands – just 400 deaths to the previous crop of 2018. And seeing this result, the Norwegian Prime Minister said: we should have been more like Sweden. Such an admission was hard for a Norwegian, as there is an old rivalry between the neighbours; but she did it anyway.
All over the world, recognition that “we were duped” grew on people. In sober Germany, the special committee of experts established that millions were not cared for as a result of government measures. Up to 125,000 patients who will die / have already died due to postponed surgery. Thousands committed suicide; life expectancy shortened; millions have severe psychiatric problems, they concluded, as a result of lockdown. (The German government tried to hide the report; German media kept mum).
Lockdown saved no lives and may have cost them, said Nobel Prize winner, professor Michael Levitt of Stanford University. He predicted that the UK would be rid of Covid within weeks – and his prediction became true within a fortnight.
Coronavirus is vanishing so quickly in Britain that we can’t find enough contagious people to make viable vaccine trials on healthy volunteers, said an Oxford researcher, and some scientists are considering purposely infecting volunteers with the virus. It is very far from the dreams of vaccine makers, of Bill Gates and the WHO, of Contagion the movie, of billions waiting for the saving vaccine. There are not enough sick people even to test their products.
The story of coronavirus is over. It will live with us like so many viruses, but it won’t be accompanied by its more potent twin, the fearvirus. Some people are very upset. The Coronavirus fantasy of “millions dead” collapsed, but the lockdown strategy did crater the family economy and created windfall profits for Deep Pockets. In the UK, thousands of renters are about to become homeless. In the US, 40 million became unemployed, but Deep Pockets added half a trillion dollars to their wealth.
Now they have to justify their actions, otherwise people will demand an answer. Maybe, God forbid, they will demand a special 105% Pandemic Windfall Tax.
They, and their media, jumped on George Floyd’s death as a great opportunity to change the agenda in midair.
The Masters of Discourse have formed the public agenda for years; there are people formed by the agenda. They think and do as they are told. They march when they are told. They stay at home when they are told. They are good people; they want to be righteous; they like virtue and signal that; they are easily swayed by claims of moral superiority. They take their marching orders from leading liberal newspapers. They are short of critical facilities; just tell them what is right and good and they will act accordingly. Ostensibly, they are better human beings than self-conscious egotists who despise virtue and embrace every prejudice. Alas, their moral superiority is based on a lie.
They are devoted members of the Alternative Jewish-for-Gentiles Woke Church of the West. Some of them are fanatical believers; others are hypocrites or just regular worshippers. Bear in mind the quasi-religious quality of this movement; in vain will you look for logic or plain sense. As they are a Church, they delegitimise all other lines of thought and behaviour. If they were led by wise and good shepherds, they could form an important moral force in the world. But no such luck.
