Social Distancing And 1984

Social Distancing And 1984

Some have pointed out how ‘social distancing’ is a divide and conquer tactic and I have made mention to how odd the names given to these things are. AIDS, for example; just whom does it aid? Now I know it’s an acronym for Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome, but who acquired it?
Here we have ‘social distancing,’ not  ‘physical distancing.’ Why? Physical only has one more syllable in it. 
But what is wanted is more than physical distancing. The pictures of the Italians with their wine glasses on the ends of large poles, clinking their glasses together in a toast from their balconies show that they understand. Of course they lived through Stalin.
It’s wanted that people should be less friendly and less able to communicate. They should fear the other person; they have a disease they are trying to give you. You are in competition with them for toilet paper.  
Anyone who hasn’t read the book 1984 should do so, while they’re in lockdown. The book is about a man named Winston who is living in a totalitarian regime. The government is ‘Big Brother’ and he is watching you. History and the media are controlled. Virtues such as love are frowned upon.
Winston falls in love with a woman named Julia. They are found out and taken away. 
The government tortures Winston to break him, so that he only loves and trusts Big Brother. 
They force the ability of ‘double think’ on people, which is the ability to hold two contrary thoughts in their minds and believe both. (And have we not had an abundance of contrary thoughts from the media now?) 
In the end, Winston breaks and tells them to torture Julia instead of him. Satisfied that he has finally lost all shred of humanity he is released.
We are even ‘social distancing’ on social media; everyone is polarizing into virulent and opposing factions. 
If there was ever a time to come together, however, it is now.

Returning To 'Normal'

Returning To 'Normal'


We are starting to see more talk about returning to ‘normal.’ I would like to point out the definition of ‘normal,’ which is; “conforming to a standard, usual, typical or expected,” which means that, if we were in a ‘normal’ condition before, a pandemic could not have crept up on us, therefore we were never in a state of ‘normal’ to begin with.
Well, these things happen, you might say. It’s bats or rats, as in the case of the bubonic plague. 
Well, here is an interesting article; https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/8/9/01-0536_article  
It talks about how the bubonic plague was used as a biological weapon during the siege of Caffa by catapulting corpses that were infected with the plague at the enemy. I doubt this was the first time it used in this way. My opinion is that it probably goes on back to the ancient Egyptians who were likely among the first to stockpile this virus. 
This article also mentions this practice of stockpiling viruses in passing;
“Despite its historical unimportance, the siege of Caffa is a powerful reminder of the horrific consequences when disease is successfully used as a weapon. The Japanese use of plague as a weapon in World War II and the huge Soviet stockpiles of Y. pestis prepared for use in an all-out war further remind us that plague remains a very real problem for modern arms control, six and a half centuries later.”
Y.pestis is the bubonic plague and a group of doctors worked tirelessly for around a decade to completely eradicate this plague (they were working mainly in India) only to have the major governments of the world turn around and stockpile the plague by the metric ton. 
Don’t think our government is not doing this as well.
There has been a lot written on how the Communist Part in China covered up the true facts about the Corona Virus. One expert pointed out how the Communist Party cannot help but lie about everything, which makes it look somewhat more innocuous. 
But let’s play Devil’s Advocate and suppose a virus was intentionally released. Who would profit from such an act and how? 
Well, it could be a biological weapon used by one country against another as we have talked about. Here we are following Chin’s lead in the tactics of virus control, which is, at the same time, putting a stranglehold on the world economy. Meanwhile, at this same time, China is returning to ‘normal,’ and getting its economy on the road again. 
Others have cited that there are certain factions that want the world population thinned out and they would be cheering this situation on if not responsible directly for it. Not only is the population getting thinned out but the rest have been put in either a ‘waiting mode’ or a purely survival mode. Think about the names given to these things; ‘social distancing,’ (yes, we are not just physically more distant but socially more distant from each other) AIDS, (just who does it ‘aid?’) 
As long as we expect that large central governments are needed to take care of us, they will ‘take care of us,’ and this will continue to be the normal we return to each time.

Do What You Want To Do

Do What You Want To Do

‘The lunatic is in the hall. 

The lunatics are in my hall. 

The paper holds their folded faces to the floor 

And every day the paper boy brings more.”
Words from Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’, the song ‘Brain Damage.’  And it does seem the media is holding our folded faces to the floor. It’s a field day, for the media being able to peddle so much fear and death and they have our rapt attention, in fact there’s no escape, not even on social media. 
They are the Piper, calling the tune and we follow like the mice to the river. 

“The lunatic is in my head. 

The lunatic is in my head 

You raise the blade, you make the change 

You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane. 

You lock the door 
And throw away the key 

There's someone in my head but it's not me.” 

Well, you know what I say;

“Do what you want to do,
And go where you’re going to.
Think for yourself
‘Cause I won’t be there with you.”
George Harrison

If there ever was a time, the time is now to think for yourself. To get a little bit New Agey on you, you have that ability, that power to make up your own mind. Going further and further down the tubes is to no avail. What if we embarked on a grand experiment to see what would happen if we all changed our minds about the current situation as well as the future. What if we decided what that would be, instead of letting a bunch of talking heads determine our outlook for us.
I personally doubt we are ever going to get the truth out of the media. They are truly the Merchants of Chaos and death and despair is their daily special.
