Imagine No Big Cities

By Dennis Prager

I’m not a yuuge Dennis Prager fan.

However, he hits it out of the park here.

I know all sorts of people leaving big cities for places like Cheyenne, Bozeman, Hilton Head and Kyle, Texas, 60 miles northeast of San Antonio.

Big cities have always been sources of evil and corruption.

It’s not a practical idea, but it is fun to ponder.

The Flat-Curve Society

Two absolute CLASSICS by Jack Kerwick from early April, 2020.

Coronavirus Hysteria: The Flat-Curve Society – April 8, 2020

But in truth, the Flat-Curvers among the masses are no laughing matter.  They are as scary, really, perhaps scarier, than their Leaders.  The Flat-Curvers in Big Government and Big Media know that they are advancing a fiction designed to advance their own economic and political interests.

The Flat-Curvers throughout the country, though, those who are increasingly wearing masks; raiding grocery stores; hoarding goods; and shaming, blaming, and attacking those who they deem insufficiently observant of Social Distancing protocol—they are True Believers.

Yet they’re frightening because, as I noted above, the incalculable damage to the material, mental, emotional, and, yes, spiritual well-being of scores of millions of their fellow Americans, to say nothing of untold numbers of other human beings around the world who will inescapably be injured by this shutdown of America, couldn’t have happened without the zeal with which they’ve fallen into lockstep and followed their Leaders in Big Government and Big Media.

AND:

Coronavirus Hysteria: The Flat-Curve Society and “the Curious, but Quite Authentic, Inability to Think” – April 9, 2020

However monstrous the deeds were, the doer was neither monstrous nor demonic, and the only specific characteristic one could detect in his past as well as in his behavior during the trial and the preceding police examination was something entirely negative: it was not stupidity but a curious, quite authentic inability to think.”

The Religion of Covid

By John Hayward

I know nothing about John Hayward and can’t find the original source of this essay. However, he knocks it into the cheap seats here.

Every crisis becomes a religion if it lasts long enough.

One factor in that transformation is the Beautiful Theory phenomenon: the power elite insists its remedies are logical and politically correct so they must work, even if the actual evidence shows they obviously don’t.

When Beautiful Theories crash into hard, cold reality and shatter, faith is the glue used by the elites to put their precious ideas back together. They need militant faith to get the job done: true believers eager to crush doubt and compel obedience by making war on the infidels.

Some are swept into the faith because they desperately crave a sense of control over the crisis. They need to believe Something Can Be Done, and they’d rather invest their faith in debunked Beautiful Theories than have no faith at all. Faith is a coin that demands to be spent.

Some crave social approval, and the purveyors of Beautiful Theories have immense political, economic, and cultural power to make their faith seem fashionable. Virtue signaling is such a plague in modern society because the signals are pre-packaged and made very easy to send.

Some aren’t even hoping they can assert control over a crisis by converting to its religion. They’ll settle for just having some meaning, some simplicity, a sense that the righteous will fare better than the unbelievers, that virtue will be rewarded while sin is punished.

That’s a very common impulse with the Church of Covid, since the Beautiful Theories were so very obviously wrong. There isn’t much left of the faith except the visceral communal satisfaction of hoping unbelievers will be punished for their blasphemies with sickness and death.

That sort of thing happens with all of the crisis religions, although not usually as quickly and obviously as with the Church of Covid. Look at the endless stream of movies about how the world became an apocalyptic hellscape because people didn’t believe in global warming.

The last resort of every crisis religion, the last thing that puts a**es in the pews, is that addiction to misery porn, the collective hope that unbelievers will suffer someday, and everyone will admit the True Faith was right all along as Judgment Day crashes down upon them.

The elite will never have the humility to admit they were wrong, and they’ll never give up on politically or financially profitable “solutions” even when they obviously don’t solve the problem. Founding a crisis religion means they never have to say they’re sorry.

That applies to some very longstanding crises, like the War on Poverty, whose nostrums long ago transformed into fantastically expensive articles of religious faith even as mountains of data accumulated that proved they were utter failures, and often made the problems worse.

You can look for some telltale signs of a crisis transforming into a religion. The most obvious one is when the high priests tell you the “war” you’ve been drafted into will never end. They become very angry when asked to define success or failure, or lay out exit strategies.

Watch for the moment when you’re told “science” means not asking questions, defying dogma, or challenging “consensus.” That is the literal definition of faith, not science.

Always keep an eye out for Moving Goalposts, which are the signature miracle of crisis religions, their version of parting the waters or loaves and fishes. Crisis religions work very hard to make their faith unfalsifiable by constantly changing the standards of evidence.

Check to see if certain people are accumulating huge amounts of money and power from a crisis. That’s a pretty good sign it’s turning into a religion. A crisis should be solved as quickly and efficiently as possible. Don’t let it fester long enough to become a special interest.

Above all, look for the whiff of arrogance to develop around a crisis. Wise religions and effective crisis managers have something in common: a sense of humility. Crisis religions are militant faiths that quickly become arrogant, smug, and totalitarian.

Dedicated people who truly want to solve a problem will look for evidence their analysis is wrong, or their policies aren’t working, and make adjustments as quickly as possible, no matter the cost or embarrassment to themselves. This is humility.

Crisis religions are arrogant. They reject criticism, insist their Beautiful Theories must be right because they’re ideologically pure – they fit snugly into a worldview that must not be challenged. Their plans only fail because their commands were disobeyed or sabotaged.

The high priests of a crisis religion see devils everywhere, leering at them from the rubble of every failure. Only sin can explain why their Beautiful Theories are tarnished. Failure is never their fault, so it must be yours. They find your lack of faith disturbing.

And you know what? A lot of people want to see the world that way, including a great many self-described atheists. They hunger for the comfort of faith and the vibrant energy of militancy. They want to be right, and they want the wrong to suffer for their folly.

Conservatives think religious faith in the State is terrifying and wonder why so many embrace it. It’s because uncertainty is much more frightening. A simple false story is better than a complex true one, and with enough faith, maybe we can force the simple story to be true.

Why the Rush to Censor and Suppress?

I went to www.openvaers.com/covid-data today – August 15, 2021 – to see the latest updates on vaccine deaths and found this.

Why are people so desperate to censor and suppress anything that contradicts their narrative?

Don’t they have any confidence at all in the value of their ideas?

“You Should Wear a Mask to Keep Others from Getting Covid”

They tell us we should wear masks out of concern for other people and because we might be carrying covid and not know it and wind up infecting someone.

Why haven’t these people worn masks all their lives … as contagious diseases have always been with us? And are they prepared to wear masks for the rest of their lives … as contagious diseases will always be with us? The possibility of transmission has always existed and will always exist.

And are these people just as concerned about people who have trouble tolerating masks? I for instance had PTSD that had been dormant for over 2 years until Colorado mandated masks. Between last August and this past June, I had several attacks. And how about people who have trouble breathing, sore throats, mask rash, severe headaches and who have fainted while wearing masks? Your body is designed to inhale and exhale in a specific manner. Masks interfere with this process. Wearing one all the time is not at all good for you.

And why don’t they have HAZMAT bins for mask disposal … if covid is truly the megakiller they want us to think it is?

Anthony Fauci: Dog Murderer

The White Coast Waste Project has unearthed evidence that Fauci and the NIAID spent $424,000 on experiments that involved the torture and slaughter of beagles.

Here is a video from Fox News.

And stop calling him “Doctor”. Joseph Mengele and Che Guevara were also physicians.

I know all too well from firsthand experience that if you’ll treat animals like s*** you’ll also treat people like s***.

CDC: As of July 25, 2021 only 5 percent of Covid deaths are from Covid Alone

The link is here.

So instead of 630,000 dead, as Team Doomsday claims, the number of people who have died from – instead of with – Covid in the United States is only about 31,500. This number, while tragic, is less than we lose in an average year to due influenza. And you also need to consider that this is an 18-month total. So a 12-month total would be more like 21,000.

So if you are otherwise healthy, your chances of dying from Covid are about 1 in 15,800.

Yes, I’ve Known Dozens of People Who’ve Had Covid … and 2 Have Died

This has been going viral on Facebook.

In my case, I’ve known dozens of people who’ve had Covid. And 2 have died.

Some support all the mitigation measures, while others oppose all the mitigation measures. Many, no doubt, are in between.

Some combat survivors never met a war they didn’t like, while others are pacifists. Many, no doubt, are in between.

Some 9/11 survivors believe every word of the official story, while some don’t believe a single word of it. Many, no doubt, are in between.

In the aftermath of the 1999 Columbine horrors, Tom Mauser, who lost a son there, became very vocal in favor of more gun control while Darryl Scott, who lost a daughter there, became very vocal in opposition to more gun control. Other parents, no doubt, were in between.

Do you notice a pattern here?

Just because someone has had a certain experience doesn’t automatically mean that they believe everything the powers that be tell them to believe. Stop trying to speak for other people. Stop bullying, intimidating and guilt-tripping people into buying your party line.

They have the capacity to think and ask questions. And so do you.

Masks Trigger my PTSD

By Doug Newman – email me at dougnewman@juno.com

Three years ago, tonight, I received a death threat. That night I slept on a friend’s couch and woke up screaming about 6 times. For about 3 weeks afterwards I had pretty serious challenges with PTSD. After that things dwindled to almost nothing.

In all of 2019, I had 1 attack. It was triggered by a super aggressive tailgater.

I have had numerous attacks over the last 12 months from those worthless masks. (I avoided them whenever possible and haven’t worn one at all since I had to go to the Arapahoe courthouse at the start of June.)

Overall, my PTSD issues are relatively minor. But those masks are super confining and trigger flashbacks.

However, I have several friends who have had far more serious issues ranging from difficulty breathing to severe headaches to frequent sore throat to mask rash to almost fainting on a few occasions. One friend had a relative who died of a lung infection she contracted as a result of wearing a mask all the time.

And this is just in my circle of friends. Let alone all 330 million people in this country.

Life is way too indescribably complex to think that radically redirecting it will happen without any unintended consequences. And if science could only be handed down to us by certain designated elites and could never be questioned, humanity never would have emerged from the Dark Ages.

And life expectancy would be much shorter.

You have no idea what some people are dealing with. Before you scream at, guilt-trip, censor, abuse, bully, humiliate, threaten, and attribute the worst imaginable motives to anybody who doesn’t goose-step along with what you, the government, and the media want them to do, show them a little bit of grace. And exercise your capacity to think.

You have your reasons for living your life your way. And other people have their reasons for living their lives their way. Let’s respect each other.
