It is nearly a month now since the Obergesundheitsfuhrer of my state (Virginia) arbitrarily lifted the arbitrary “mandates” regarding the effacing of faces he arbitrarily imposed last summer and while face-effacing is much less than it was, it is still alarmingly common – this manifestation of a very sad mental illness (extreme hypochondria) having been normalized after having been weaponized and even turned into an expression of misguided virtue.
Old people – probably still fearful of being Corona’d by the “virus” they’ve been taught to fear as the existential threat it isn’t. Young people – still eager to show how much they care about the feelings of others. Which they, too, have been taught to regard as virtuous despite it being precisely the opposite of that to egg on irrational fears by pretending they are rational fears.
Face-effaced kids, who now refuse to show their faces out of a combination of both the fear and the misplaced urge to demonstrate their “caring” for “the community,” as drilled into them for the past year-plus in government schools and by the corporate media.
These latter are so conditioned that many of them continue to face-efface even though their parents (complicit in the conditioning, by exposing them to corporate media and sending them to government schools) have removed their face-effacers.
What we’re dealing with, in psychiatric terms, is probably analogous to what happened to Patty Hearst – a story that bears repeating.
Hearst is the granddaughter of William Randolph of the same name; the great newspaper/publishing magnate of the last century. In 1974, as a young woman, Patty Hearst was kidnapped by a gang that was also a kind of cult that styled itself the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA).
This “army’s” ideology is of interest.
According to its founder, Donald deFreeze – who styled himself “Field Marshall Cinque” – the “name ‘symbionese’ is taken from the word symbiosis and we define its meaning as a body of dissimilar bodies organisms living in deep and loving harmony and partnership in the best interests of all within the body.”
Italics added, for deconstruction shortly.
The Field Marshall and his “army” kidnapped 19-year-old Patty Hearst on February 4th of 1974 with the intent – initially – to ransom her family for money. When the money was not forthcoming, Hearst was kept and – apparently – serially raped by the Field Marshall, subjected to mock executions and other forms of psychological and physical torture. This resulted in Hearst becoming a member of the “army” – and adopting its cultish ideology. She participated in several armed robberies before she was finally captured and jailed rather than ransomed and freed on September 18, 1975. She was eventually convicted of armed robbery and sentenced to seven years in prison (subsequently commuted by President Jimmy Carter and herself eventually pardoned by President Bill Clinton).
Hearst came to identify with – to revere and even love – her tormentors. The Field Marshall serving as her Fauci, who can be imagined saying almost word-for-word what the Field Marshall said, as quoted above.
“The best interests of all within the body. . .”
We’re all in this together.
“Living in deep and loving harmony and partnership . . . ”
Wearing is caring.
Fauci, of course, is a “doctor” to the same degree that DeFreeze/Cinque was a “Field Marshall,” both being so in name only.
But they both practiced the same form of medicine. Both used fear to terrorize their victims into a state of paralytic submission. Both conditioned their patients to regard their abusers as saviors – and to do their bidding, considering the doing as virtuous. Hearst came to believe in the doctrines of the SLA, just as millions of Americans still believe in the doctrines of Fauci – who exerts the same fear-bond hold on them as the Marshall with the difference being that the latter was regarded as a criminal and treated accordingly while Fauci has yet to be so treated.
Though one can hope.
It took many years of therapy for Patty Hearst to recover her mental health and it is probably going to take many years for America to recover its mental health. The first step being a general acknowledgement that Americans were the victims of an orchestrated campaign of mass hysteria; that the threat posed by the “novel” Corona virus was maliciously exaggerated and the fear generated by this was deliberately used to psychologically berate people into submission; to make people believe that submitting was a moral necessity – and to make them believe that those who did not submit were behaving in an immoral manner – creating the condition for a pogrom against sanity in the name of insanity.
The people responsible for this – in government, in media – must be held accountable for their crimes. They did not err innocently. They did what they did on purpose and what they did was nothing less than evil – and far worse in terms of its effects upon millions than what was done by one criminal to one woman, once upon a time.
In 1974, most Americans knew a cult when they saw one. In 2020, millions of Americans joined a cult. In 2021, a great many of them are still members of it.
They will not go gently into that good night. As you can still see, practically everywhere you go.
