Any bets on how many of the Sheeple will just bleat a servile little BAAAAH and happily go along with this?
As a symbol of submission, forcing us to obliterate our individuality by wearing masks was not explicit enough. So they pushed the envelope even further.
How much further, you ask? I blush to even tell you.
Gov Janet Mills says – servers must now wear face shields upside down so that their breath is directed up, not down. Yes she wants you to wear a dog cone… peak insanity. I wish this was a joke.. its real 😆 #facecovering #faceshield pic.twitter.com/cnyojzTd3c

Desperately hoping, hoping against hope, that it’s some kind of parody or satire? That it’s just a bitter joke? That it isn’t real—CAN’T POSSIBLY be real?

Yeah, tell me again, whydon’tcha, how this is all about combatting a deadly, world-ending virus. About being “safe.” About following the SCIENCE™!! That one’s my favorite.
Update! Enforced estrangement, and a “life” that is no kind of life at all.
I must confess that gratitude was not always forthcoming whilst jostling for service at a crowded pre-Covid bar.
Yet the now silent sterility of Britain’s once bustling pubs perfectly personifies our ‘new normal’. Separated into smaller ‘bubbles’, prohibited from interacting with others, the demise of such establishments is an inevitable consequence of enforced estrangement.
While pubs on one level are just a convivial way to dress up our social hopes, the pandemic state of them illustrates a wider truth. For life, the way we live it now, means that the avoidance of death is more important than what we do with what we’ve got.
When Covid-19 emerged, many millions of drifting souls, finally forced to confront their own mortality, looked to their governing elite for direction, and unsurprisingly found neither courage nor perspective, just naked fear.
Almost immediately, every relational, fulfilling, communitarian component of human existence was sacrificed, with society – whipped into frenzy by a compliant press, happily policing its own lack of dissent – transfixed by the fallacious elimination of ‘preventable death’.
Constantly haunted by warnings that reunion might result in a ‘deadly second wave’, innumerable ‘little platoons’ have not and will not return. This is the harm actually, irrevocably being done to society now. Note well the shrillness of those insisting, ‘what harm can masks do?!’ They screech this disingenuous question precisely because they at some level know exactly how much harm is being done to freely lived life by this medical-security theatre.
In the continual absence of metaphysics, life – shaped for many years by the pursuit of comfort – is now defined by the avoidance of death.
In our post-religious faith terror of death, our irrational, cowardly belief that it is either possible or even desirable to create a risk-free society, we have confused life with mere existence. We have foolishly traded essential liberty for a little temporary safety, lost both, and deserve neither.
Humiliating update! What really ought to be the absolute last word on the COVIDIOT shamdemic…but won’t be.
We’ve known for months now that COVID-19 has virtually no chance of causing serious complications for young and healthy people.
If you remove just six states with extraordinarily high nursing home deaths from the U.S. data, COVID-19 never even reached the CDC’s threshold for an epidemic. [They define epidemics in terms of fatalities not, as one might expect, cases.]
Data released by the Texas Department of Health in July shows that COVID-19 is less lethal there, regardless of age, than the flu was just two seasons back!
As I reported last month, the flu put way more of a strain on our hospital system just two years ago than COVID-19 has. Yet we coped and it somehow never even became national news.
As I reported on Wednesday, just like the stories we initially heard about COVID-19’s deadliness, the scare-mongering about its extraordinary level of contagiousness also turned out to be total BS.
Infected people with no symptoms basically have no chance of spreading the virus.
As I also reported Wednesday, one reason for that is around half of us very likely have pre-existing “crossover” immunity from having been infected with other strains of coronavirus that only produce common colds.
As I’ve pointed out again and again and again, the people most insistent that we obey all these humiliating rules are routinely photographed in flagrant violation of them. Unless you think they care more about your life than their own, it’s patently clear they don’t believe a word of the fear-mongering BS they’re peddling to us.
Finally, as I reported last month, literally thousands of doctors and scientists, including a Nobel Prize-winning biophysicist, have been trying to cut through the media gaslighting since it began to sound the alarm that none of the lunatic suicidal restrictions inflicted on us make any scientific sense at all.
At worst, we’ve got a virus that’s somewhat more deadly than the flu to the old and antecedently ill but less so to everyone else.
There was never any reason for the mountain of hardship, misery, and death brought down on our heads by the deranged response to COVID-19 and there’s even less reason now.
There’s simply no way to look at Governor Mills’ order that restaurant staff parade around in public wearing dog cones around their neck other than as a deliberate attempt to force the hardworking people of Maine to participate in their own humiliation in order to create what Theodore Dalrymple has aptly called “an easily controlled society of emasculated liars.”
The dog cones make it painfully obvious.
But the same is true of forcing us to wear masks, keep completely arbitrary distances away from each other, shutting down our businesses, closing down our schools, and all the rest of the sickening defilements of America’s founding commitment to individual liberty that wouldn’t have accomplished a damned thing even if all the scaremongering about this virus hadn’t turned out to be complete garbage.
Anyone paying close attention has known all this since the greatest and deadliest hoax in history got started way back in March. But there’s no excuse for anyone not knowing it now.
They only got away with doing this to us because we let them. And it’s long past time we all stopped being willing participants in our own degradation.
Brilliantly, bluntly put, cogently argued, with a ton of supporting links throughout—Michael Thau has laid down one hell of a fine piece of work with this one.
