The condition of being healthy and the return to this state of being
Ship Of Fools
It has now been a good two years since the Rona first hit our shores , bringing with it the implementation of various measures to help Australia avoid some of the scary health outcomes and accompanying death rates seen in most other countries.
It is time now to take stock and see what these “Pandemic measures” actually acchieved. There is a long answer and a short answer.
The short answer is : Absolutely Nothing.
Studying today’s worldometer statistics it becomes obvious, that Australia’s now surging death rate is on par with most other western countries.
How can this be?
Initially the death rate in most countries was a lot higher than the 0.1 % we are seeing now (About 1%), but once herd immunity was reached in places like the USA this dropped dramatically. Basically, the virus picked the low hanging fruit first, the sick and the elderly in nursing homes.
Another worying trend was that at some stage anybody who died from any cause was classified as a corona death, in fact, relatives were paid hush money, if they allowed Nanna’s death at 96 to be classified as a covid death, even though she had 3 co-morbidities.
So what about the lockdowns, social distancing, mask mandates and enforced vaccines?
We can safely conclude that none of these enforced measures made very much difference. At least not in any quantifyable positive way.
Masks don’t work, lockdowns kick the can down the road and vaccine mandates are ridiculous, when a virus has a 99.98 % survival rate. Add to this the fact that the “vaccines” offer only very short term protection and carry huge health risks compared with standard vaccines.
The only positve thing resulting from the vaccines was the fact that governments felt safe to end the lockdowns, which resulted in mass infection and resulting herd immunity.
The slightly milder “Omicron” did the rest.
But we could have had that in the first place, if there were no lockdowns in the first place.
A prominent pagan youtuber has called the vaccine the “transubstantiation of the sacred needlecraft” , and that is mostly what it was, if you believed in it, you were absolved of your sins.
Others call it the Kool Aid.
Many people did not believe or want to drink the Kool Aid, so they were forced “for their own good”.
For what use? Deaths from all causes have increased dramatically, birth rates have plummeted everywhere. There are staff shortages everywhere, where are all the workers? Australia relies on overseas workers for some industries, but European countries are having the same problems : staff shortages everywhere, airports in chaos due to a lack of baggage handlers.
Some people blame the needlecraft directly , others the mental and emotional toll of the lockdowns as well as increased anxiety and mental health problems due to the fear porn spread by politicians and the media for almost two years.
What we had was a politcal response to a a medical problem and it wasn’t even entirely political. Giant international corporations are the only ones who profited from the pandemic and most career politicians are just beholden to them these days.
As for medical solutions, there were and are plenty of effective early treatments, but we were forbidden to access them, as there was no money in them for the global cabals.
Now they are already trying to bring back the masks and encuoraging endless boosters, will it ever stop?
This only ends when we say no more. Get off the ship of fools while you can.
The Mask Dead Enders
By Tom Woods
Masks have been taking a beating.
First it was the sudden Establishment consensus that outdoor mask mandates had no scientific merit and should be repealed.
Then it was the CDC saying that the vaccinated don’t need to wear masks.
Then, from this foundation, big stores like Trader Joe’s, Walmart, and Costco all announced that the vaccinated would not be required to wear masks in their stores — and added that they wouldn’t be verifying anyone’s vaccination status.
And yet in many places mask wearing is still overwhelmingly prevalent.
The wearers either don’t believe their vaccines work, or they suddenly don’t trust the CDC, or who knows what.
Or they’ve simply been so terrorized and propagandized that they can’t think clearly.
Or the mask is a symbol of “science” and moral superiority, and they can’t give that up.
|The other day on Twitter someone asked people: why do you care if people are wearing masks outdoors? They’ve just been through a mass death event. Let them do what they want.|
Well, of course I’ll let people do stupid, pointless things if they want.
But here’s why I care:
(1) If people did a rain dance after a long drought I wouldn’t say, “Can you blame them? It’s been a long drought.”
(2) Many of the people still wearing masks, especially outdoors, are the very ones who spent the past year lecturing the rest of us about science. When they themselves act in defiance of science, it rightly makes us question what their true motivations had been all along.
(3) Masks don’t seem to do anything. The “studies” purporting to show that they do either involve arbitrary dates (and thus exclude huge spikes that would be embarrassing to have to explain away) or are just models, in which the model assumes from the start that masks work.
What we know in reality is that we have chart after chart after chart of countries around the world in which, just before a massive spike, some headline read, “How Country X Defeated the Coronavirus,” and the story generally involves masks. After the spike, no journalist revisits the issue and says, “Maybe we were being too simplistic when we attributed country X’s success to masks. The Florida panhandle is mostly unmasked, and their health outcomes are no different from those in the rest of the state. Mandates have ended in numerous states, with no ill effects.
(4) Human communication involves more than words (and even words can be hard to make out with masks on). Masks disrupt the full spectrum of human communication, thereby opening the door to suspicion and misunderstanding.
(5) Are we seriously so debased that I actually have to argue in favor of seeing people’s faces?
(6) Infants and toddlers need facial expressions for their proper development. We all know about the studies involving infants and a mother who is expressionless as opposed to a mother who is smiling. Infants and toddlers today are growing up in what must seem like a soulless dystopia.
(7) If you’re wearing a mask outside in particular, you’re either impervious to evidence or you’re making some kind of statement, and neither possibility is particularly flattering. Nobody would do such a thing without at least a vague sense that it’s scientifically justified. So that means they almost certainly look at my unmasked face and assume scientific ignorance. I don’t particularly care for having that assumption made about me.
At first many of us wondered how the politicians would stand down from all these crazy restrictions and requirements. But now an equally compelling question is whether substantial segments of the American public itself will be willing to ditch these things.
I suspect the masks will come off in large numbers once a critical mass is reached. In other words, the remainder will fall quickly because I think many of those people complied in the first place out of a desire to do what was popular. As soon as masks cease to be popular, this group of people will rip them off pretty darn quickly.
Covid SAFE tracking application
Australia launches its COVID-19 tracking application amid some concerns over privacy and security of the application. The data will be stored on Amazon servers, the source code has not been released and no peer review of the code. On day 1 there were scam text messages related to the app. The government hopes that 40% of the population will install the app on their smart phones to make it effective. People are already concerned about the creeping intrusion into their lives this causes. We have given up data security for dumber reasons before, Victoria has all its drivers license data stored in China for no apparent reason.
So in these tumultuous times make sure you are tracking your peasants lest they become unruly and seek to topple their masters.
Already over 1 million Australians have downloaded this application. The application claims to track people you have been in close proximity with for more than 15 minutes. Surely these days you would know who you have been in contact with like that in this age of physical distancing. You’ll notice the meme of ‘social distancing’ as a further attempt to atomize people.
So the application is somewhat pointless and is just another over reach into your privacy for no good reason. If the COVIDSAFE application does have any real purpose, it certainly isn’t being disclosed to you.
A researcher, Mathew Robbins has examined the app as discovered it does ask for permission to access GPS location. So yes, it intends to be a tracking app in future releases at the very least. He also notes Australia’s invasive metadata laws and Facebook’s creepiness.
Occupy London rebooted
In response to the brutal crackdown in Hong Kong Occupiers converged on London to show support for democratic principles.
Dave Cameron bleated about respect for democracy while allowing brutal crackdowns in his own front yard.
Apparently now even sitting on a tarp is enough to make police aggressive.
Can you believe ‘1984’ was actually written in this country?
3 colonies 3 polls: no change, hobbits unhappy
No t Ye t
The UK probably only offered the independence option because they thought it would not be taken up but once international market began to get nervous the hype machine had to get into overdrive to push it back in the box.It would be fair to say neither Scotland nor the UK were completely prepared for Scotland to leave with Scotland holding the oil assets and the (war) ship building, and the UK holding the currency, the pension funds and the national health service (NHS). Sort of like winning the lottery and thinking of leaving your wife only to find out she gets half of everything anyway, and the kids aren’t ready to leave home either.
On the positive side: more powers of self rule were offered in order to sway the vote back to the ‘no independence’ camp where it had looked dangerously lacking.
Colonel Frank Bainimarama
First election in 8 years Colonel B retains leadership but a veneer of democracy restored, but for how long?
Positive side 8 years and no coup.
Despite mounting evidence of deep corruption in New Zealand political system New Zealand returned a largely unchanged parliament,
and returned John Key formerly of the Federal Reserve Bank of the USA as its leader. The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.
Positive side: all the international based shills will now pull up stakes and fade out of the picture.
Negative side: Hone Harawira, a strong campaigner for the poor, appears to have lost his place in parliament.
And now we get to hear about all the ‘irregularities’ in these polls, will be very interesting.
Fun fact: all of the places discussed were or currently are controlled by the UK in some way.
Steven Molyneux on Robin Williams Suicide
Of the 1.5 million worldwide violent deaths annually, more than half, about 800 000 people, are suicides, mostly amongst the elderly. Anti depression medication, especially SSRIs has been linked to increased risk of suicide and also, Parkinson’s disease, which Robin Williams is said to have been in the early stages of.
Steven Molyneux makes the connection in this clip:
Prevent the political sacrifice of a victim of crime
This man received serious head injuries as a result of being assaulted by a wanted criminal attempting to steal a hand gun.
Don’t let cognitive dissonance cloud your thinking
Don’t let the Marxist and thugs win the media war or allow the political sacrifice of a man trying to save his own life.
Here at occupy we saw real heavy handed unprovoked use of force by police. We were beaten, robbed, harassed and slandered. When did we resort to looting or violent assaults on the public, never. We know what real injustice looks like and we know a Marxist media hijack when we see one. The tactics are always the same. Ignore and/or suppress facts, manipulate opinion, make illogical, emotionally laden arguments, ad-hominem attacks on opponents and even on victims of serious crimes making a formal complaint.
Officer Wilson will possibly be partly blind in one eye for life, his opponents have always been willingly ‘one eyed’ for some time.
Pants up, Don’t loot.
