How Did I Know?

It looks to me like what happened is this. SARS-COV-2 was circulating for months or longer (we now have evidence that it was around at least since August 2019). Nobody noticed because it’s a mild respiratory illness like there are so many every season. China was upset over Trump’s big win in the tariff war. China wanted him to go away and the friendly, deeply compromised Biden to get elected instead. China cast about haphazardly and lazily for a pretext and came up with SARS-COV-2. Videos of people dropping dead in the streets were engineered and unleashed to create panic.

I don’t think they expected to be quite this successful. If you told us a year ago that we’d dismantle our economies, lock ourselves up and torture children with glee over a head cold, we’d laugh. But that’s what we did.

I strongly believe that these lockdowns would have happened anyway. China lucked into this SARS-COV-2 drama. But without it, I think the pretext was going to be global warming. That was the “existential threat” before the current existential threat. As soon as the SARS-COV-2 charade becomes impossible to maintain any longer, it will be straight back to “stay locked up to save the planet.”

Before people begin to object, I want to remind them that I’ve been saying for years and years that we are moving towards a society where up to 60% of people are unneeded, wasted lives (or “non-essential,” whatever) and the comprehensive free public education will be gone. People will be stuck at home staring at screens, getting handouts from the government and getting drugged into oblivion.

Ask yourself, if I’m full of shit, how come I described 2020 in such detail back in 2014? How come I spent years blathering about exactly what we are living right now?

China happened to give the first pretext for this but it would have still happened. This was the logical next step. Now it’s interesting what comes after we’ve made this step. I know it just like I knew about the rest of it.

  1. “This was the logical next step. Now it’s interesting what comes after we’ve made this step. I know it just like I knew about the rest of it.”

    In what sense? You’ve answered what comes after with

    ” up to 60% of people are unneeded, wasted lives … stuck at home staring at screens, getting handouts from the government and getting drugged into oblivion.”

    My question is what will be the next stage. Who’ll support 60% of non-essential (non-)workers forever?

    1. Forget who’ll support them. We’ve been at it for 9 months and nobody has starved. It isn’t a money issue. The next stage is eugenics. And it won’t need any expensive gene engineering or cell modification. It’s already in progress and it will cost nothing. It’s ubermensche against the unpeople.

        May be explain in a detailed way what you mean? Perhaps in a post?

        I’ve worried about this not ending well for UBI receivers, yet was told ‘nobody is starving, they’ll just happily stare at screens.’

        1. I already did, though. Remember my post on The Hourglass?

          Child obesity cases are exploding as a result of lockdowns. Childhood depression is skyrocketing. This is the eugenics I’m talking about. A whole generation of fat people with zero social skills and an incapacity to exist without constant stimulation by screens and with no real human subjectivity.

          That’s the eugenics. That’s the danger.

          1. Eugenics was supposed to attempt to “breed out” “disease, disabilities and so-called undesirable characteristics from the human population.”

            Here you describe how normal children will be harmed which is the opposite from the original promise of eugenics.

            Will they be prevented from reproducing somehow?

            1. Another side of eugenics is to create an Ubermensch. A superior human being. How do you do that? Turn the majority into inferior human beings. That’s the easiest way.

  2. There’s one thing I will say: I think the plane travel had gotten really excessive, everyone was flying everywhere way too much. I remember the days of flying less. It did not feel like jail.

    Ages at which I have flown: 7 once, 8 once, 10 once, 16 once, 17 once, 19 once, 20 once, 22 once, 24 once, 28 once, 29 once. That was a good rhythm and you can see I did go places. Then it started to have to be more and more, over the past 30 years, sometimes explicable (on-campus interviews, of course you fly, or death of parent), but increasingly it had become because you had to fly everywhere at all times, it was now things worked. I’m glad to be back to more ground transportation and would like this to be a permanent change. High speed trains in US.

      I liked being able to leave the house and step onto the ground in Malta 7 or so hours later last Christmas… I like being able to reach Turkey or Greece or Italy in a similar time frame). For various reasons most of the time I can only leave for just over a week and not having to spend three days on a train and ferry is far superior to having to do that.
      And if Europe can’t make high speech train travel affordable (outside of very narrow corridors where the train takes to the middle of a dense urban area) why should the US be able to?

        I’m happy to live in a world where other people who don’t want to fly, don’t fly.

        What I will cheerfully fight the Second Civil War over is other people deciding that because they don’t want to fly, I shouldn’t be allowed to fly.

        Death and hell to that nonsense.

        1. I feel the same about lockdowns, masks, and the “vaccine.” If people want to get vaccinated, glue a mask to their faces and barricade themselves in their house – more power to them. I’m extremely supportive. But when they start trying to force me to participate – no, thanks.

          1. Did you see the Birx scandal? She’s now explaining that her family members have really suffered from loneliness and isolation, which is why she had to travel. And I’m thinking, oh, really? Tell me more because this is such a unique situation. There’s nobody else here who knows how that feels.

            I support her traveling. It’s the rank hypocrisy that gets to me. Of course, she’s a doctor, so she knows lockdowns are stupid.

            1. Yeah. I’m not a scientist. I’m using Dr. Birx and others who have access to all the latest data, and all the top experts, to determine the appropriate response to COVID. Not what they say of course: people lie all the time. But how are they behaving? Every day we hear about this or that governor, official, reporter, policy-maker, etc. breaking quarantine, traveling, going out to the salon/restaurant/beach, or getting together with family and friends. They, with access to the best information, do not think it’s a big deal. It would be silly for me to conclude otherwise.

                To paraphrase from a comment I read…. if the elites really thought this was a danger to them they’d walk over our bodies to hunker down and protect themselves…

              2. They’re probably worried about being infected by the lower classes. So long as the unwashed masses are locked down for their own protection, I’m sure they feel fine interacting with each other.

                You are more right than you know. Back in March, when the initial stay-at-home order happened, the day after our county announced it, a bunch of our county commissioners and city councilpeople ignored the order to attend a big contractor-sponsored shindig featuring a minor country music celebrity (that celebrity died of COVID about a week later, which is the only way the peons in our county found out about it: all the bigwigs had to be tested). That will surely come back to haunt them the next time they’re up for re-election.

                Anyway, about a week later, my sister was working the gate-house for a posh subdivision when a Karen pulled up in her golf cart. She was dutifully signed in, on her way to a friend’s dinner party, which she was very open and chirpy about. Then, when my sister walked over to check the contents of the cart (which her job required), the poor creature shrieked “Six feet away! Six feet away!” Clearly she did not feel there was any danger in attending a dinner party, but when confronted with a lowly security guard…. Cooties!!

    2. The online conferences, though. God. I love conferences! They always clear my mind and make me inspired to write more. I loved conferences. Will they ever come back from this pathetic remote version? The whole point of the conferences was to get away, hang out with people, hear new things, see new places. Remember Austin?

      Oh, I miss all that.

I’m also roped in (maybe, for the greater good) to another EU funded project and am not looking forward to the idea of remote meetings with that…. at least with the old one (for all its many faults) I got to see several new countries (4 or 5 depending on how you count).

  3. At least one of those people-collapsing videos has been identified as real but not caused by corona. I’d guess that’s the case for all of them – the video compilers just looked for videos of people collapsing, and assembled them claiming they were from Wuhan.

    However, I also think this compilation was most likely done by ordinary (albeit nasty) people, probably from the Chinese Internet, similar to those who make “funny accident” compilation videos on Youtube. If they were made by state actors, I would expect they were made by enemies of China, who spread bad news, real or otherwise, whenever they can.

    The idea that the videos were part of a CCP plot to frighten the west makes little sense. May I point out that the original SARS (2003) killed about 1 in 10 of the people who caught it. That’s why Li Wenliang – the ophthalmologist who warned of Covid, and later died from it – was initially called in by the police, because he said on WeChat that there were patients with SARS, and this was considered dangerous rumor-mongering.

    If we want to understand how the planetary lockdowns came about, we need to earnestly understand how China’s original lockdown came about, and then how everyone else got on board with this idea. I’ve heard that the Chinese lockdown came from a Politburo decision, and that WHO and the G-20 helped make lockdowns the standard everywhere else. Alex Berenson I think has a small book about the second step – how lockdowns were adopted worldwide.
