Don’t let the Diaper Demented get away with controlling the debate by controlling the language.
It wasn’t WuFlu that shut down the economy and threw tens of millions out of work and psychoticized the public, creating via a kind of national Milgram Experiment, 30 or 50 or maybe even 150 million weaponized Michael Jacksons who will need years of therapy to return to a normal state of mind.
There would have been no lockdowns, no house-arrest and no “crisis” were it not for these two symbiotic serpents. Life would be normal.
Similarly, it’s not “your” Face Diaper – unless you actually went out and bought one (here’s hoping not). It is a Face Diaper. Which they are trying to pressure everyone to wear.
Yet the bullying signs one encounters on the doors of practically every store – and within the store – urge the donning of “your” Diaper.
It gets worse.
Excepting the Gesundheitsfuhrers, who have the power to declare themselves “essential” and also the power to force the “unessential” to pay their salaries. Who won’t miss a meal or get cold this winter when the power is shut off, because it won’t be – theirs, that is – because “we” are not “all in this together.
Which also implies a kind of universal agreement, or seeks it by the saying of it. The phrase is a form of what is known to ad men as suggestive selling, as when a purchase is pressured via something along the lines of “and that’s when you go ahead and buy it, ok?”
Unless the beleaguered buyer specifically says no – which he may feel awkward about saying, which is exactly the object of the exercise.
But in this case, it’s not Time-Life history books being sold.
Language works both ways, though. Hence the importance of using this weapon in reply.
Not “masks.” Face Diapers. If people use the latter rather than the former, it becomes a great deal harder to maintain the fiction of seriousness necessary to get people to submit to being Diapered. When the conversation comes up, always refer to these awful things by the derisive term rather than a term that helps to legitimize the Diapering of America.
Also anti-social distancing – which is accurate and so honest. Unlike “Social Distancing,” which isn’t. The latter term inverts the actuality. How can one be social at a distance? The concept is Byzantine and Kafkaesque. It bends the brain. Physical closeness – physical contact, as in the shaking of hands, a hug – is the defining essence of social interaction. Never let these evil etymologicalists invert the meaning of words, and thereby invert the meaning of conversation.
They have gotten away with it for far too long.
This Corona virus or WuFlu (not “COVID-19” – a term of a piece with “911,” both designed to market a “crisis”) hasn’t done more damage than medical malpractice, which could just as readily be transformed into a “crisis” by endless repetition, too.
The way to stop such “crisis” is by not repeating the words those fomenting the “crisis” use and thereby agreeing that there is a “crisis.”
And – in the case of this “crisis” – not letting the government and hyena media get away with laying the blame for the terror and alienation they’ve inflicted, the lives they have ruined, the businesses they have destroyed on a virus that never had the power, on its own, to do any of those things.
