Today, a Face Diapered juxtaposition.
On the one hand, this enraging video of a toddler being practically suffocated by his handlers at a day-care center. The Diaper – for his face – being repeatedly forced on the kid’s face, because every kid must be trained to wear the Rag of Submission.
On the other hand, the Emmys – and nary a face-effaced. It was a true Marie Antoinette Moment. The poor French queen may have never actually said, “let them eat cake.” But the elites without question expect us to efface our faces – and tolerate the abuse of children.
Keep in mind that kids like the one being tormented in the video above face about the same risk of dying from the ‘Rona as they do of being struck by lightning. The odds are literally on the order of one in a million.
As contrasted with the much greater risk presented by a crowd of middle-aged and older Hollywood celebrities, many of them overweight (some morbidly so) gathered together in close quarters, indoors – celebrating their own narcissistic wonderfulness. Many of these celebrities (e.g., Jennifer Anniston, Tom Cruise) having publicly lectured the little people about the importance of “masking” and Jabbing.
Which may be why We, the Little People are expressing our opinion of it – as in Australia the other day. The mercenaries of the Sickness Regime – the metastasized iteration of what was once upon a time the police, the people who dealt with criminals – as opposed to being the enforcers of criminality – were on the receiving end of some palliative treatment, at the hands – and fists – of the little people.
Who are finally beginning to show signs of having had enough. In Melbourne and Sydney, thousands showed the courage to not be “locked down” – or wear the ritualistic garment of the Sickness Cult – even though they were unarmed and faced armed mercenaries empowered to arrest them and worse.
People will endure – up to a point. But once that point is reached, they will endure no more – and God help those on the other side.
It is hard to pin down exactly when that point is reached – except in retrospect. In one of the many letters of their later correspondence, John Adams expressed to his friend Thomas Jefferson that the Revolution – they preferred the more accurate term, independency – occurred long before the fighting actually commenced, much less before it was over. It occurred, said Adams, in the hearts and minds of the people – who had come to realize there was no possibility of rapprochement with the King and Parliament of England, which had evinced a determination to subjugate the colonies to arbitrary authority.
The taxes often discussed as the proximate cause of the colonists’ resolve to become independent of King and Parliament were in fact incidentals. They made clear to the colonists that taxes were the least of it. That the problem was the authority which imposed them – not the taxes, as such.
The same revolution – of hearts and minds – is already well under way. People begin to see that it is not the face-effacing and other strange rituals that are primarily the problem but rather the authority – arbitrary, capricious and hypocritical – that enforces them. That authority has grossly overstepped its legitimate boundaries – if it ever had any, to begin with – and for that reason has lost any claim to legitimacy it may once have enjoyed.
People are done with it. The kabuki, the idiocy – the gaslighting/shaming for not pretending to believe in the tenets of a Sickness Cult.
The abuse visited upon children, especially – many of whom will be damaged for life as a result of it.
Not all people, of course. But the rest do not determine the course of human events – now or in the past. It isn’t much taught – because of the lesson it would impart – but the fact is that what secured the independence of the American states (plural, as in these United States) was a cohort of determined people who’d not only had enough but realized they had no other choice.
These were not idle words. They were words of revolutionary understanding. That – much as it is to be hoped for a peaceful coming to terms – a point is reached beyond which such may prove to be impossible – given people who cannot abide the idea of leaving other people in peace.
Well then, let it come.
There may be no other way to cure what ails us.
And as for them – well, may God have mercy upon them.
For we will not.
