Diapering relies on two things – the maintenance of mass hysteria and the application of social pressure. The two are of course closely related. Hysterical people can’t be reasoned with – and when hysterical people appear (being Diapered) to outnumber you, there is pressure to not stick out by not showing your face.
This is part of the reason for the pressure applied by signage at stores to get people Diapered; people see the sign and they Diaper. People see other people Diapered – and so they Diaper.
Practically everyone seems to be Diapered as a result.
It’s a circle that completes itself.
But it’s easily broken – by not giving in to the social pressure. The act itself isn’t difficult – just don’t do it – but for many people it is psychologically difficult to do it. See the first paragraph. When people are scared – not of the sickness but of sick people (who may attack) they duck their heads and don the Diaper.
It is understandable, but no less dangerous for being so. It is the same mentality that had lots of “good Germans” raising their right arms about 100 years ago.
They didn’t want to stand out, either.
Cowardice has consequences.
The easiest thing one can do today is wear a Diaper and mouth the imbecile slogans. It is socially approved and socially rewarded – like raising one’s right arm was about 100 years ago in that other place. There was safety in seig heiling. The comfort of not standing out. Of being able to be out and about without having people look at you, perhaps express disapproval of you. Possibly, hit you.
The hard thing to do is not to raise one’s arm – or wear a Diaper – in defiance of the signs.
But it is essential.
And so I walked right by the sign at the Goodwill store in Roanoke, which proclaimed in block-type lettering reminiscent of Der Sturmer (all that was missing was the fraktur font) that Diapers Muss Sein! Such signs – larger and not just on the door but inside the store – are appearing all over the place, not just at Goodwill.
Lowes and Krogers in my area have similar signs – all of them recently posted. The employees don’t say anything – yet. But the ratcheting up of the signage says they soon will.
How long will it be before these declarations are accompanied by caricatures of The Undiapered reminiscent of Der Sturmer’s caricatures of Der Jude?
If this isn’t stopped, it will come.
Note that The Jew was represented as a biological threat to the health of the populace at large. Does it have a familiar ring? The incitement directed at The Undiapered is almost at the same pitch. The sickness heilers are being encouraged to bully and even attack the Undiapered. History doesn’t rhyme.
One can almost picture the Diapered marching in rank, “we’re all in this together” and “stop the spread” banners held high.
Then, as now, bullies are most dangerous in groups and groups of bullies depend on social sanction and lawlessness. They are emboldened by the submission of their victims. This is why it is a categorical imperative to not submit to organized bullying.
As by simply ignoring these bullying signs.
There are – as yet – few (if any) laws backing the signs and the social pressure providing the power is still in our hands to dissipate it.
And so I walked right on in, along with my girlfriend, the two of us visually asserting normalcy by showing our faces – something the Diaperers are seeking fanatically to efface because they understand that faceless people are submissive people. The Diaper is the same thing as the bit in a horse’s mouth – or (better) a star armband on your arm.
Degradation preceded extermination. Humiliate a man; set him apart from the others. Make him wear something that marks him out as an enemy of the rest – thereby giving sanction to the rest to do awful things to him while feeling good about doing them.
Today, it is those not wearing something that are being marked out from the rest. But those wearing the thing are also marked out, degraded. They have identified themselves as willing accomplices as well as compliant victims. As people who not only will do as they are told – because they are told – but beg to be told.
They will be the first to get Needled – along with their kids – who are being prepared to accept the Needle by being made to wear the Diaper.
Sophie has chosen both of her kids.
Of course, they don’t see themselves this way – but how they see themselves is irrelevant. What is relevant is how they are seen – by the forces that have reduced them to this state of eager servility.
It’s all for the Greater Good!
Not theirs, of course.
Much less ours.
Would you have raised your right arm? Worn the yellow star? If not, why do you wear the Diaper?
Why do you insist others do? Because they might be sick? Why not just burn witches, while we’re at it?
Will you be able to live with yourself if you have helped to enable what’s obviously in process, once it’s all over with?
It may not be easy to do the right thing.
But it’s much worse to do the wrong thing.
