Covid Coup lessons: learned?

Two problems with that formulation:

  1. Did we really learn anything from the shamdemic scam?
  2. 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.

Oh, I think the lessons are going to be with us for the next decade.

It will only be a decade, if we are lucky.

In case anyone was under the impression otherwise, the government lies about everything. Whatever the government says, you can assume the opposite and be correct 99.99% of the time.

Yep. And it would be 100% of the time, but they screw up and accidentally tell the truth every so often.

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.” - John Adams

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." — Dwight D. Eisenhower

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” - Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it." - NC Reed, from Parno's Peril
