Resistance is not futile, I am pleased to report.
I visited a local Kroger – which is one of the big chain supermarkets that, in lockstep with other big chain stores – recently decreed Diapering for all customers. Kroger – those in my area, at least – was very heavy about it, initially. They posted billboard signs by the doors declaring “local ordinance” required Diapering (it does not, the store is merely asserting a policy, which lacks the force of law) and posted a Diaper Dispenser by the door, who would thrust one at you if you weren’t Diapered and recite some gibberish about the “ordinance.”
The first time I crossed the boundary into the land of the Diapered Undiapered, ignoring the Diaper Dispenser – who seemed almost hurt by my demurral – I was followed by a second Diaperer, who tried to foist a piece of paper at me, apparently under the impression that I obey pieces of paper thrust at me by store clerks.
I didn’t – and was not further harassed about my failure to join this cult of sickness.
Others I know – and have encouraged – have also refused to join the cult by behaving (and shopping) in a healthy way. As by walking in and shopping – without donning the uniform of the cult, i.e., the Face Diaper.
While most of the people within my local Kroger have been infected by Sickness Psychosis – transmitted by CNN, MSNBC and NPR – there was a heartening number of not-sick, not Diapered people within.
And the Diaper Dispenser at the door disappeared.
One may just walk in now without having to deal with what is very much like the Hare Krishna cultists one used to encounter at airports (this was before the TSA became the cult one must deal with in order to fly).
This may have been a shift change when I happened by – and not a dial back. It is hard to know for certain but I will continue to report. What I can report for certain is that the Krogers in my area are not enforcing the Diaper “ordinance” – by denying entry. This, of course, may change. It is likely the pressure from the corporation will increase – for the same reason that the pressure from CNN, MSNBC and NPR will increase.
They have to keep the Fear Burner on high – the cases! the cases! – fingers crossed that fear will prevent most people from thinking and then resisting on account of it. They are desperate to conflate the cases! the cases! with death – but that’s a physical problem because of the absence of corpi delicti.
The bodies aren’t stacking up – again.
Remember the ululations about the millions that became (quieter ululations) hundreds of thousands to just over one hundred thousand (60,000 “confirmed” – the rest “presumed” and god only knows how many of those manufactured) now and almost never ululated anymore?
Which plays right into this Diapering thing – the pressure to get people (everyone) to Diaper, which is necessary to keep everyone afraid, in order to keep everyone from not thinking.
By not Diapering, you not only show that you do – you encourage them to.
Which is why – again – it is so important to not buckle to this pressure. Think of it in schoolyard terms. A bully’s power lies in his ability to keep the other kids afraid. If one of them isn’t – and shows it – the others lose their fear, too.
Speaking of losing. In a previous Diaper Report I detailed the loss of my dentist – who insisted on a Diaper for the sake of appearances (the ten yard walk from the check-in desk to the chair where you get worked on, without a Diaper) which means the sake of the ritual of this cult. Since I’m not in it, I didn’t perform it – and thus left without getting my teeth cleaned.
Even better – here comes the gain part – I have found a new dentist, who isn’t a member of the cult. He will clean my teeth without demanding I surrender my humanity – or play Kabuki.
I will not name him, for all the obvious reasons but I wanted to tell you about him so you know that not everyone has joined the cult. That there are “heretics” out there who are willing to treat the not-sick (in the body) normally because they are not sick in the head.
And more, because they are sick of Sickness Kabuki, including this toxic miasma of social pressure and shaming to get sane and healthy in the body people to join the cult of sickness of the head by denying them service if they refuse to play along.
Don’t give in. Because that is how they win.
There are more of us Wrongthinkers out there than you may realize. And they don’t want you to realize it.
Which is why I wrote this, so you’ll know they’re wrong – as well as sick.
