Degrees of Death

On the left, there is almost always a hierarchy. In victims who have grievances and needs, there are always those with greater grievance and have more needs which tends to shift around. In what is advertised as an egalitarian system, this may to those mundanes who use at least simple logic and reason seem contradictory but it isn't. Post-modernism allows for truth to exist in a superposition of many "truths" or anything the leftists wants to call "truths" at the same time. But unlike superposition in modern physics that collapse into one state when observed, Marx's cat can be not only dead and alive but in all intermediate states at the same time when the box is opened and the cat observed. The truth of post-modernism is that there is really no truth. The rank and file Marxist simply picks the one state of "truth" suitable for the moment that satisfies some emotional need or better highlights his virtue and the leadership picks the one that advances the Party's interests. So rather than puzzle things out, it's easier to do what any leftist does in this situation: Just to accept today's declaration of the hivemind on the matter and forget and deny the existence of what contradictory thing was declared true yesterday. Facts and reality be damned!

The only exception to the rule of hierarchy on the left where there is only one truth is in the matter of their enemies, i.e. anyone who disagrees even in the slightest with the dogmas of the One True Ideological religion. There is only one Devil of literally Hitler (with many faces) and his legion of witches and demons with their fixed moral character of pure evil and their insufferable fixation on fact based truthiness. And but one commandment on the matter to the faithful- Thou shalt not suffer a witch or their truth of empirical fact to live.

But all rules have exceptions to even the exceptions. Don't try to figure that out, just accept that sometimes the centrally planned and controlled mind of the leftist functions much like that of a of an OCD addled bureaucrat- all things must be categorized and sorted.

So three paragraphs of  digression and annoyingly long sentences later we have not yet come to the topic of death? You'd think any blog with such a morbid and macabre title, this author would jump right into the subject of death. Hell, the damned blog should be a grisly exposition of moldering lichs and graveyards! What gives, caretaker!

Just warming you up, dear reader. Setting the table as it were with the rotted flesh of a decayed and intellectually dead ideology before we autopsy the subject at hand.

So today we have the latest apocalypse/fear porn craze sweeping not only the nation, but the world: corona virus COVID-19. It is a most contagious and deadly plague as if the medieval black plague had a love child with the Andromeda strain creating a microbial demon spawn. Even if you can't see the hospitals overflowing with the desperately ill and dead bodies littering the streets with your lying eyes, the computer models read by the high priests of expertise assure us they are there. If not outside the really cool graphics on their xbox models then in the soon to happen terrifying second (or maybe third) wave. And since this variant of a common cold virus is so incredibly murderous and evil, death by COVID-19 has been elevated into the most worstest form of death one can experience. Worse than gunshot wounds or climate change deaths at present. Orders of magnitude more horrifying than more mundane and unimportant forms of death that don't rate on the SJW scale.

So sometimes if the Devil is death, there can be worse forms of death for which the entire might of the Managerial State must be deployed against without a moment's delay. And all actions of the State are unquestionable otherwise such doubting miscreants who question diktats or ask for proof are guilty of being in league with the demon virus. They want grandma to die! The exception to the one Devil exception is when the previous devils of gun violence, racism and climate change failed to scare the masses enough for them to allow political leaders and bureaucrats to take plenary power.

This is where the constant changing reasons for lockdowns and moving of goalposts to end it makes sense. It's a Ruling Class who although at first, not seeing its potential, came to realize that this Wuhan flu is the crisis that should be exploited to the max. It's the perfect boogeyman in that it's not only a mysterious, invisible killer but it's a personal one that can strike any individual without warning or mercy. Or at least as mainstream media propaganda makes it out to be as even the CDC stats are starting to show it to be an average cold and flu season. And it worked beautifully.

Never since September 11, 2001 have Americans been so ready willing and eager to not only surrender more of their rights and freedoms, but even better: To slavishly wear masks and stay 6 feet from each other. Depersonalized, atomized as a community, treated like a child that cannot understand what is best for him and degraded in servile obedience. Even going so far as to spend their own money on masks and gloves for the honor and privilege of entering and spending their money in a store. They tolerate this disrespect from businesses because they're too scared of the invisible killer to remember such things as the customer is the lifeblood of a business and the customer is always right.

This is not because the government has made such extraordinary claims about how dangerous this virus is with extraordinary proof given but just because our betters simply said so. Most people did not ask one single question as to why this lockdown thing with the masks and distancing stuff which was never done before in prior pandemics was really necessary. Nor did they ask that government officials prove it would be effective. Nor did the government bother to prove it anyway. As this is now the absolute worst form of death, the masses simply did as they were told like good little peasants.

We will now have to live like feudal serfs, tied to our homes and only allowed out for only essential (by official expert government definition) reasons and we must wear face masks to show our unconditional fealty to our Master's commandments. Then it's as if we expect our Master's Experts will tell us that avoiding the most deadly form of death, we can live forever. That the average age of death from Wuhan flu or by some stretched definition is about 80 years old so one would assume that's the natural human lifespan but no. We cannot lose one precious otherwise immortal life or at least have grandma in hospice care live a few months more or the younger terminally ill get their full promised 6 months to a year to live. This would be just.....wrong!

Proof be damned and anyone who is skeptical and dares asks for proof, questioning his better government expert with "Doctor" as his first name is a denier and a heathen miscreant. A heretic who is evil and wants to kill someone's grandma and so must be unfriended and cast into the void forthwith. Probably a racist and white supremacist too.

We must never, ever question any government bureaucrat with "Doctor" as his first name as he is the anointed Infallible High Priest. Any other dissenting first name Doctor must be ignored as he is in league with the Wuhan demon virus and the great Orange Satan. Nothing must shake the faith of the progressive congregation in the official narrative of today's most worst form of death ever... until it is officially changed by the officially recognized authorities of the Great Hivemind.

So our autopsy of the rancid corpse of progressive liberalism is complete and the cause of death was denial of reality, hiding behind the authority of experts worshiped as gods and an idiotic submissiveness to a narrative and agenda. An agenda whose true purpose the rank-and-file progressive liberal/Social Justice Warrior himself does not or cannot understand. Nor can the SJW notice the contradictory narratives of the Wuhan demon virus precautions and the BLM/Antifa demonstrations and riots in which all COVID-19 rules and precautions are cancelled without explanation. It seems that only Black people can die when killed by white police officers which at least for the time being is now the most worst form of death.

One would think that anyone who really follows this cult would have a serious case of whiplash from following the rapid fire narrative changes and sharp about faces of "truth" but no. The faithful progs try ever harder to keep up. They're used to the multiple realities of Marx's cat and can reverse course at a moment's notice from huffpo. Yesterday's truth is quickly forgotten in light of today's new truth. Today's cause upon which the fate of the world hangs in the balance is serious until a new, even more super serious cause comes along. The worst form of death is the worst until the Masters decide a new form of death is even worse than that. The liberal prog and SJW simply nod and obey. They then engage in purity spirals among themselves to establish status and persecute the witches and heretics who are either outright skeptics or progs who aren't pure enough.

In the end, this COVID-19 Wuhan flu thing is a political abuse of expertise and science prostituted for a political and economic agenda. We hire an expert to give us their opinion but as rational adults, we also seek out other experts' opinions, then do our due diligence and research to decide which expert opinion cost/benefit would be best for us. There are those who are incompetent imbeciles who have no other choice than to look upon government experts as infallible authorities and need some demagogue to lead them. Unfortunately, this sort of cretin and their Masters are all too ubiquitous in modern society and their fears given too much credence by Joe and Jane Normie.

Conversely there are those like a certain blogger of my acquaintance who follows the worstest form of novel virus death because he is either a virtue signalling twat or a political rent boy hoping for his Master to upgrade him from a seat in a toy government community council to run for political office. Maybe both. Either way, his mindlessly following arbitrary rules with a born again fervor while hiding behind an appeal to authority is subservience veiled with gravity. This is the hallmark of a contemptible character. Just like all the others who slavishly follow these absurd rules.

For Some Small Businesses Like Restaurants, It's Not Adapt or Die. They Don't Understand It's Just Die already.

From The Brooklyn Daily Eagle: ‘Adapt or die’ — Restaurants find ways to evolve amid virus, June 22, 2020 Mark Kennedy Associated Press

The Peasant Mindset never ceases to amaze me in a horrifying sort of way. When I wrote that post, I had at least some notion that new information or observation could come along in the future that would have me revisit this theory and revise or discard it as necessary. Maybe it's better than average correct but I had no idea how accurate the theory really was. Not that it pleases me to be right, but on the contrary, I am dismayed and disgusted by it. The more the notion that on average people will behave like servile peasants has spread around the internet as many more people than myself have independently come up with the idea, I hoped more normies would have seen this and acted to prove it wrong. Joe and Jane Normie view themselves as proud Americans and nothing could be less American than being a debased slave of the State and if called out on it, they would act to refute it. I was in the end, wrong for being right.

Two of the most fundamental ideals of being an American are valuing and protecting their inalienable individual rights, protected from government encroachment by the Bill of Rights and free enterprise. But under the multi-purpose tool of this alleged demon virus, COVID-19, Joes and Janes around the country can't surrender to the plenary power of the State fast enough or more completely. Even at the cost of their own livelihoods, they will in effect, willingly commit suicide to prove what loyal little peasants they are. And in this Brooklyn Daily Eagle article, behold the once proud Americans castrate themselves out of unreasoning fear and obsequiousness before the politicians and bureaucrats who are supposed to be the public's servants.

The restaurants owners have given up any pretense of government by and for the people for the "new normal" of micro-managed government control down to how many patrons my dine there, that salt and pepper shakers cannot be on the tables and how many feet apart patrons must be- or else. Patrons are even required to wear face masks while alone in a restroom so to enforce this edict, how long will it be before cameras are mandated in bathrooms. The panopticon taken to levels undreamed of by Orwell and would have made the likes of Hitler, Stalin and Mao blush.

Not that any of our Betters have bothered to prove that this virus is in any way novel or deadly, or that there is any science behind this anal-retentive hypochondria beyond hysterical claims based on wildly inaccurate computer models. The facts even from the CDC show COVID-19 isn't worse than an average cold and flu season. So why go through all this shutdown/lockdown essential/non-essential, masks and social distancing nonsense? Because government apparatchiks said so, that's why and that's all the filthy peasants need to know.

These restaurant owners seem to forget that that as taxpayers and voters, that the politicians and bureaucrats they kowtow to are in fact their employees, not their masters even if politicians threaten their licenses. Does the Chamber of Commerce have no lobbying power? Do these business owners not make contributions to political campaigns such that they have some influence with elected politicians? Do they not vote in elections? Can they not band together for a class action lawsuit that would force the state of New York to prove their claims of how dangerous this COVID-19 virus is and prove the science behind and necessity of all these draconian regulations? Did anyone not notice how all the mask wearing, social distancing and prohibition of demonstrations and groups not to exceed 10 people have gone completely out the window in light of the George Floyd/BLM/Antifa demonstrations, riots and looting? How many businesses were further hurt by this while the city and state stood by and did nothing. In fact, how many government apparatchiks with some sort of medical degree declared these events as good and will cause no public health problems. What more proof does anyone need to see that city, state and federal government officials who have imposed this control freak's Orwellian wet dream on us were lying all along?

To these restaurant and bar owners who believe they can conform to this artificial "new normal" and survive, I tell you this: You'll lose eventually because the powers that be have decreed it. Our Masters have found that when people get together and socialize, the peasants get into such mischief as questioning the official narrative, voting for Orange man bad, Boris Johnson and Brexit and develop the temerity and hubris to live above their lowly station. The peasant begins to see himself as the equal of his Master and this must be stopped. No amount of whining "not me","it wasn't me doing these things", "I'm a loyal progressive liberal" will matter. Your goodthinker progressive credentials and past acts will not save you from Witch Hunter Karen.

The U.S. Constitution has long been a thorn in the side of the Managerial Ruling Class and has been de-facto overthrown with governors and mayors illegally ruling through fiat. We must not stand for it and must vote all politicians who went along with this out of office. No exceptions for your Great Guy.  If I was correct in the Peasant Mindset then I may well be correct now in what I write. If nothing else, you can have pride in yourselves as competent, productive adults who contribute to their communities and local economies. Otherwise, you'd be forced to eke out a marginal existence as incompetent imbeciles wholly dependent on the opinions and decisions of government experts fetishized as infallible high priests. You built businesses and worked too hard for them to now accept living on your knees for the reason a politician or bureaucrat merely said so.

There is no longer any room in the new perfect planned and controlled cashless society for such small fry as yourselves so if you survive these regulations, a new invisible killer unicorn threat will be manufactured with even more stringent rules to finally kill you all off. As the length of time for such non-essential businesses as yours and the reasons for it were changed so many times already do you not see you were being lied to? Understand that all the virtue signalling, fealty and groveling to your Betters will not save you as it shows how weak and cowardly you are. It will only make your destruction more satisfying to our political masters as they slowly crush you. Your dying squeals for mercy and of loyalty while on your knees will be sweet music to their ears. Don't believe the lies, don't meekly accept this new normal. Fight back now before it's too late.
