So many good things have come about as a result of the worst thing that has happened to us, ever. That being the “pandemic,” as its purveyors have largely succeeded in getting most of us to refer to it. Very much as they got us to use their verbiage to refer to the events of September 11, 2001 as “911.” Both of these usages being of great psychological importance. By using them, we are manipulated into agreeing with them. There is a “pandemic.” We agree that an emergency – 911 – exists.
There are other such usages, such as the injunction to wear your (rather than a) “mask” and get your “vaccine.” That the “climate” is “changing.”
But a good thing has happened. More people than ever before have begun to examine these usages, to think about what is meant – and once that begins, it is very difficult to ever stop it.
A good way to understand the process is by referring to the old sci-movie, They Live – which was about a society asleep at the wheel, programmed to the uses of a cabal of aliens who people couldn’t see unless they put on special sunglasses. Once they saw, they could not unsee.
It works the same in real life, no special sunglasess needed.
People have begun to see – not only through the lies – but that the lies are deliberate, malicious and being used to further ends no less diabolical than in the movie.
They live, indeed.
And more of us than ever not only see them, we no longer trust them. Will never trust them, ever again. Whatever benefit of the doubt they may have enjoyed, any presumption of well-intendedness, has been lost, forever. Millions of us now assume they are lying – about everything. Take nothing they say at face value. Operate from the presumption that they are malicious rather than mistaken.
It is not cynicism. It is healthy awareness. The same awareness we learn to develop about poisonous reptiles, for instance. Children know to be cautious around snakes. Adults are beginning to relearn the same caution around human-in-form snakes. This awareness will be the undoing of the snakes.
Including the ones wearing white coats.
Prior to the “pandemic,” these snakes enjoyed a deference comparable to that which Catholic priests once enjoyed. One did not question Father’s interest in young boys. Even when something told you something was very wrong about Father’s interest in young boys. No, it cannot be that. I shouldn’t even be thinking that. And then it became impossible to deny that Father was doing exactly that.
And so it is with the white coats.
The god-like aura is dissipating and along with it, the deference these white coats previously enjoyed. The profession – like that of priest – is tainted, perhaps forever. Which is perhaps a very good thing if it means that reflexive deference and blind trust are no longer extended. A priest is not necessarily a bad man- and neither is a doctor. But neither are necessarily good men, either – entitled to deference just because they wear a collar or a stethoscope. When either acts in a manner that arouses suspicion of motives, be suspicious of motives.
Another good thing that has happened is dawning awareness that government schools are very bad things for kids. The “pandemic” put sunglasses on millions of parents, who for the first time finally saw – literally – what was going on in those schools. This can never be unseen, either. Millions have decided to keep their kids out of government schools, forever.
An exceedingly good thing. Family bonds are being renewed. Closeness, re-established. Children are being taught to think rather than what to think. This will enable them to see, as if someone gave them a pair of those special sunglasses.
But perhaps the best thing of all to happen as an unintended result of all the badness is the turning back toward ourselves – toward those we know, whom we know we can trust – because we do know them. Who have earned it. Our friends. Our families. The people in our own orbit. Like the neighbor who raises tomatoes, who swaps you for the eggs laid by your chickens. The guy who owns the gas station/hardware store down the road, who feels the same way you do about “masking” – and would never try to force you to wear one.
There is a lot of goodness, all around us – which they emphatically do not want us to see. It is why they have worked so hard to set us apart. Literally. Physically. The ordered isolation, the “social distancing,” the facelessness attending “masking” – all of it meant to achieve precisely that.
Because if we ever become aware of what they are doing to us and begin to come together, conscious of the power for good latent in that, it will be an extremely bad thing . . .
