Our recent post “Rejecting The New Normal” caused some controversy. First of all, it crashed our servers, presumably due to a sudden spike in traffic. This means many of you probably could not load the page when you tried. Sorry about that.
Then the hate mail started pouring in – or to be more polite – the “angry” mail started pouring in.
A few subscribers wrote us to complain about just how despicable and selfish we must be for expressing our desire for personal rights and freedoms. In particular, our unwillingness to wear a mask seemed to inflame. “You should be ashamed”, “blood on your hands”, “disgusting false news”, “irresponsible, ill-informed, dangerous”, and “selfish ass” were some of the keywords we received.
To be clear, we never said we were against people wearing masks, we said we were against the idea of forcing people to wear masks against their will – a key distinction that needs to be reinforced.
When we replied with links to scientific studies showing masks simply don’t work to stop or even slow the spread of flu viruses, the source of the information was offhandedly dismissed as “conspiracy theory” and we were labeled as such. Nobody seems to care about science when it doesn’t serve them and the officially approved agenda.
“Not a single randomized controlled trial with verified outcome has been able to detect a statistically significant advantage of wearing a mask versus not wearing a mask, when it comes to preventing infectious viral illness.”
There is, of course, no easy answer to these attacks. Now that the mainstream media has truly and completely brainwashed the vast majority of the population, those of us interested in personal freedom and returning to “normal” are being ostracized and vilified using the precise terminology and reasoning delivered by our detracting subscribers.
The larger picture is the one we’d like to draw your attention to, and the one that will continue to be a theme in our blog – that of continuous and blatant deception brought upon us by our media, and the institutions that form the bedrock of our society. It is not easy to accept the fact that we are being misled to no end on every front, as the effort to keep us asleep to the brazen criminality that reigns across our planet goes unnoticed and unpunished.
One only has to consider how wearing a mask and social distancing is fundamentally inhuman – despite the daily counts of coronavirus infections. Critical facts like the 99.96% Covid survival rate, the median age of death from Covid being higher than average life expectancy, and those under 45 have a greater chance of dying from a car accident than they do from Covid – all of those facts go completely unreported. And while cases rise as testing rises, death rates keep dropping.
The suffering of the half a million or so who have died from Covid is broadcasted across every TV and radio station with a daily update, but the billions of people who have been shut out of their jobs, prohibited from using recreational facilities, restricted from seeing their family members and/or forced to wear a mask in public – all of that suffering is dismissed as necessary sacrifice.
Despite the reality that around 10 times as many people (in the US) are dying of cancer and heart disease every single day compared with Covid, and despite the fact that flus have been deadly to the vulnerable population every winter for hundreds of years, the majority of our entire population has been convinced that this novel virus ought to change us all into anti-social, mask wearing zombies for the foreseeable future, until a for-profit corporation comes along with a vaccine, even though no vaccine has ever been developed for any type of coronavirus, ever.
It seems to matter not to our faithful news reporters that more than 800 million people will go hungry this year vs the projected 1 million or so Covid deaths.
And the fact that central banks print enough money to feed every child on earth, but instead use it to bailout greedy and corrupt corporations is beside the point. We should completely and utterly drop everything, stop work, close schools, stay out of playgrounds, stay away from friends and relatives, and remain in a state of fear of a virus with a 99.96% survival rate.
An outright attack on our humanity has been orchestrated right under our noses (literally), and those of us who point it out are “the enemy”.
Social influencers and the media at large often use “virtue signaling” to manipulate the unwise into complying with their deceptive narrative. Virtue signaling is where someone or some group presents themselves as just and moral for “protecting others”, “saving lives”, and “keeping people safe” – often by expressing how they themselves have been victimized – while in reality it is just another control mechanism to rob you of your time and resources and distract you from your own empowerment and divine purpose.
An excellent research paper was recently published showing how “individuals with Dark Triad traits—Machiavellianism, Narcissism, Psychopathy—more frequently signal virtuous victimhood, controlling for demographic and socioeconomic variables that are commonly associated with victimization in Western societies.” Psychopaths and sociopaths use virtue signaling to their own ends, to manipulate human empathy into giving up freedoms and complying with what is in reality a self-serving agenda.
That said, we certainly don’t blame the general public for being angry at the current state of the world, and yes, it’s true, people are suffering from this terrible virus. And we don’t blame subscribers for lashing out at us for describing an inconvenient truth, we are all on our own path to awakening. It is not our responsibility, nor is it our role, to hurry anyone along their own path to awakening as divine timing is and always will be divine.
Let’s hope the “new normal” is actually better than the old normal, a normal where we stop giving our power away to talking heads on TV and start living a life of social togetherness, cooperation, and self-empowerment.
