Why do the Needlers – many of them – insist that others be Needled, too?
Aren’t they now “safe”? Shouldn’t they be unworried?
The expectation – the demand – appears to be absolute invulnerability. That any chance the Needled might still get sick, however minuscule, is ferociously unacceptable and justifies the imposition – on others – of whatever is necessary to make them feel safe.
Including the Needling of others. As many Needlings as are “necessary” – in perpetuity.
Before the Orange Man failed – and then succeeded, in getting his operation up to “warp speed” – these same people were demanding that everyone else wear the Face Diaper they were claiming “kept them safe” – belying their faith in just that. If it did “keep them safe” then why worry about others not wearing the thing?
Well, it might not be 100 percent effective.
There is a chance you – or “someone” – might be sick and that you might get others, even the Face Diapered, sick – and for that reason everyone must always wear a Diaper. Even after having been Needled.
For the sake of 100 percent obedience, which is what this is really all about.
Marketed – using manufactured guilt – as being necessary – in order to make the Diapered – and now the Needled – “feel safe.”
There will always be a chance that “someone might” – whatever the fear asserted happens to be.
If that is accepted as the new standard, if all of us are morally obliged to adjust our actions to whatever degree is necessary to assuage the fears of such weaponized neurotics, then we will spend the rest of our lives in thrall to the fears of such neurotics.
Who will become more and more neurotic, as fear compounds because the sick power it confers is limitless and thus as intoxicating as Adrenochrome is said to be. This real-life Adrenochrome sucks the life out of everything and does so in the name of “protecting” life – an outrage of such effrontery it leaves the victim sputteringly speechless for a time.
Yes, let’s take kids out of school and isolate them at home, make them sit by themselves staring at a computer screen all day; deny them contact with other kids and teach them that other kids are dangerous to be in contact with. Make them look like and feel like drones by effacing their faces.
Cripple them emotionally. Then inject them with a drug of unknown properties and provenance, to stave off the 0.02 percent chance they might die from a “virus” that they’ve been taught to believe will kill millions of them and everyone else they come into contact with, otherwise.
The people behind that are the same weaponized neurotics – gain-of-functioned – who gave us “safety” seats for kids and before that “safety” belts for adults.
They are same neurotic control freaks who go berserk when someone passes them on the road, pounding their steering wheel, flashing their headlights and honking their horns.
I used to try to make the argument that someone else’s fear that I was driving “too fast” ought to take a back seat to the fact that my driving has not resulted in any harm. Therefore, it seemed to me, I was not driving “too fast” – a standard without objective meaning.
Unlike, say, harm caused. Which is inarguably objective.
Ah, but you might cause harm by driving “too fast.” I was pelted with that argument once by a now ex-friend, who feared my supposedly “too fast” driving but didn’t seem to care about the fears expressed by others about his guns.
I attempted to reason with him.
You, I observed, have not shot anyone. Of course, there is a chance you might shoot someone, since you do have guns. What if you lose control of yourself one day? Do you accept that my fear – just for the sake of discussion – obliges you to give up your guns? To keep them locked away in a safe, even?
I made no headway.
Cognitive dissonance stands in the way.
Many of the Diapered – and the Needled – are people who could stand to lose many pounds. Their obesity is a greater objective threat to their health than the proximity of someone who “might be sick” or isn’t wearing a face-effacer or who has not received the Holy Needling.
But they cannot understand it – and so fear it – because they feel differently.
Feelings are stubborn things – corrupting John Adams’ pithy saying about facts. More so, arguably – as facts can vitiate feelings.
But feelings have assumed primacy in the minds of many, which no longer are minds – in the human sense. Minds think. Thinking forms on the basis of facts.
Which leads to reason.
Which results in humanity. Not the bipedal forms thereof but rather the expression thereof. As expressed by an understanding that one size should not fit all; that we ought to live – and let live. Most of all, that our fears must not be allowed to find expression in animal hatred – and animal lashing out.
It may take awhile to recover such humanity. But it will never be recovered until enough of refuse to be held in thrall by terrified animals.
Our obligation is not to calm their fears. It is to reject their hold over us – and recover our lives.
