Two problems with that formulation:
- Did we really learn anything from the shamdemic scam?
- Can any observant, thinking person seriously say that there’s anything among the cited ten that we shouldn’t have already known?
Neither of which complaints is meant to suggest that these 10 lessons aren’t perfectly valid nonetheless, natch. If we haven’t learned them yet, rest assured that we’ll have to retake the test again and again until we finally do. This is a strictly pass-fail examination, impossible to rig or manipulate, and will definitely NOT be graded on any kind of curve.
Here are Ten Things We Have Learned During the Covid Coup.
1. Our political system is hopelessly corrupt.
Virtually all politicians are hopelessly corrupt. No political party can be trusted. They all can be, and have been, bought.
2. Democracy is a sham.
It has been a sham for a very long time. There will never be any real democracy when money and power amount to the same thing.
3. The system will stop at nothing to hold on to its power and, if possible, increase its levels of control and exploitation.
It has no scruples. No lie is too outrageous, no hypocrisy too nauseating, no human sacrifice too great.
Those opening three are quite serious issues to be sure, as are all the rest. But the biggest problem, since it’s the one that underlies and enables all the others and then some, is spelled out in Number Six:
6. Most people in our society are cowards.
They will jettison all the fine values and principles which they have been loudly boasting about all their lives merely to avoid the slightest chance of public criticism, inconvenience or even minor financial loss.
Amerika v2.0 is the Land of the Unfree precisely because it’s the Home of the Not-brave. You just can’t have the one without the other; they go together like…well, like this.
