Like a rheostat, Diapering is on the rise again – in tandem with the renewed and even more frantic ululations about the cases! the cases! – utterly without context, of course. Which is necessary to maintain the hysteria, which expresses itself, feedback-loop-style, in the wearing of the Face Diaper.
My local Kroger has been a face-free zone ever since the Ecuarican-style selection of the next El Presidente, which too many people were beginning to suspect was just that – a selection, not an election.
Thus, the need for a distraction. The cases! the cases!
And just like that – and just like turning a rheostat – Diaper-wearing at my local Kroger went back to 100 percent, leaving me the 1 percent willing to show his face. This reverses what had been a happy trend of seeing at least three or four other faces at my local Kroger just prior to the selection.
The hysteria was losing its grip. But when the presumptive (by the media) El Presidente’s selection began to be questioned by people who do not wish to live in an American Ecuarico (Gilligan’s Island reference, for you poor Millennials who missed out on ’60s reruns in the ’70s and ’80s) all of a sudden . . . the cases! the cases!
Even more so than before.
It may just be a coincidence. But what’s not coincidental is the way the hysteria on TeeVee (and radio) dovetails with the Diapering. People see – and hear – and get scared, even if there’s no reason to be scared.
The cases! The cases!
It is halting that so many people continue to fall for this – and fall into line. Does it not occur to them to ask: Ok, there’s a “case.” But what does that mean? Is it only that someone tested positive?
What does that mean?
We know – well, we can know it, if we care to look into it – that about two-thirds of those who test positive – and are thus categorized as a “case” – don’t even have symptoms and would be unaware they were a “case” absent the positive test.
Of the third who have symptoms, most are mild. Nothing that requires medical intervention. Such “cases” were cause for nothing just a year ago. Now they are imputed to be cause for mass hysteria.
Less than 1 percent of these “cases” ends up in a coffin. And most of those who do were already in danger of occupying one, being either pretty old or pretty sick already. The rest of the population has literally nothing to fear from this pandemic – except the pandemic of hysteria that is making life unlivable due to the pathetic, servile submission of these very people.
They put on the Holy Rag – not because it “keeps them safe” but because they’ve been emotionally blackmailed into putting the loathsome thing on, to appease the hysteria of the emotionally unstable.
No doubt to the great satisfaction of El Presidente – who ran on fear and will rule one fear.
It doesn’t matter that almost everyone is fine when almost everyone thinks they’re gonna die.
America doesn’t need a vaccine. It needs therapy – a slap across the face and a wake-up-and-smell-the-tyranny.
But it doesn’t look like they’re going to get it in time.
