UPDATE 4/25/22: Choosing Macron over Le Pen, the French have opted to continue down the suicidal path to Islamization.

UPDATE 4/16/22: Enemies of life have had long known that the surest path to permanent American conquest is undermining the family unit. Young people, unmoored from their parents and close relatives, are easy prey for destabilization and indoctrination.

UPDATE 4/6/22: Conformity is the curse of a society that thrives on freedom and genuine diversity. Totalitarian, one-size-fits-all rule has smothered us for two years, and the only rational goal is to return to the ideal normal of a bustling free market of ideas, goods, services and personalities.

UPDATE 4/6/22: Conformity is the curse of a society that thrives on freedom and genuine diversity. Totalitarian, one-size-fits-all rule has smothered us for two years, and the only rational goal is to return to the ideal normal of a bustling free market of ideas, goods, services and personalities.

UDPATE 3/23/22: In the insane 60s, mental illness itself was touted as being sanity. Judging by our present state of affairs, insanity has in fact become the acceptable norm.

Our Orwellian, upside-down era, described.

UPDATE 3/19/22: Covid was a pandemic alright, but one of mass psychosis, not Chinese germs. A new video delves deeper: “How Government Exploited Fear and Human Psychology During the Pandemic.” 

 

UPDATE 3/8/22: Almost everything at this point concerning government response to The Virus can go safely under the Mass Psychosis category. There remain many-spooked young people, infantilized oldsters-who persist in wearing their masks and still fervently long for everyone else to join them in their panicked delirium. To their dismay, many of us have long considered the real pandemic to be one of fear-driven mental derangement, not Made In China germs. So “Covid!!! The Horror Movie!” is not going away just yet even though the flu itself has long since waned.

 

UPDATE 3/1/22: In years to come, stories will abound of people dealing not with germs, real and imagined, but of withstanding a mass madness unlike anything few Americans have ever witnessed. If anything is to be learned from this trying episode, it is that our greatest enemies more often than NOT lie right in our midst, not outside ourselves and our borders. Regaining trust and an optimistic view of human nature and our institutions will be slow going.

UPDATE 2/25/22: John Fraud Kerry’s “concern” about “climate change” in the face of Putin’s aggression is mad delusion at best. Most likely, he’s upset that his Biblical sermon (Flood! Pestilence! Earthquakes! Volcanos! Hurricanes!) is about to get drowned out by cries of REAL pain when REALLY bad guys like Communists do REALLY bad things. Scaring and controlling millions of people with frightening things that aren’t going to happen is much intoxicating to sneaky powermongers like the Heinz mooch than actually doing anything concretely beneficial for anyone.

UPDATE 2/23/22: The psychological profile of traditionally freedom-loving societies now sliding toward totalitarianism can be at least partially understood by the great divide in political orientation between what are now termed the Physicals vs. the Virtuals. The former (more conservative) do real work out in the world while the latter (more liberal) are those whose entire existence takes place in two dimensions on a computer screen. The image of today’s Virtuals is reminiscent of Tom Wolfe’s Masters Of The Universe who find themselves lost away from their computers and confronted with real people living real lives.

UPDATE 2/20/22: CoronaCraziness and Woke ideology are just two current examples of mass insanity that isn’t going to wane any time soon. 

UPDATE 2/16/22: The claim that 30-40% of young people identify as LGBTQ is as disturbing as anything one could imagine. Are the adults of the future that confused to swallow whole this destructive propaganda?

UPDATE 2/15/22: O, the price we’ve paid as a society from just a little accommodation here, a little accommodation there. Wear the damn mask, take the damn shot, stay home just for two weeks….no…make that 2 more weeks….no, make that two years. And the price is losing our minds and our souls. The old authorities and once-reliable rocks-doctors, clergy, friends, family-have lost their authority, and we are at sea. The damage has been done, and now we’ll just have to weather the long-term devastation. For those still in possession of themselves, keep saying “No” and enjoy your lives.

 

UPDATE 2/12/22: Excellent two part overview from Australia on Covid and mass fascism. Part 1 and Part 2.

UPDATE 2/12/22: As Hanoi Jane exulted a little while back, Covid is a gift to the Left. Right you are, Jane! It HAS provided a primer in mass control: scare the population with false, wildly exaggerated claims of a pandemic, justify the use of forced vaccines/masks onto said populace, deflect blame for the sudden loss of rights and liberties onto resistant “anti-vax” troublemakers. Then watch the whole world cave to totalitarian control. It couldn’t happen “here,” they said. Ask Australia and America (among others), both formerly known as bastions of “rugged individualism.”

UPDATE 2/10/22: How does an untested so-called “vaccine” developed at “warp speed” and now FORCED onto billions worldwide not arouse suspicion or at least pause? How else to look upon this as mass experimentation? For those suitably panicked at what’s been force fed to them by the “experts” and their media lapdogs, what greater relief could there be than a shot..and then another one…and then another one…and then...?

UPDATE 2/10/22: Following the “culture” as dictated day by day thru the various MSM, news and entertainment both. For instance, the business about “It’s The Science!” which is actually “It’s The Politics!” The same primitive ignorance is at work when Covid terror leads to Mass Vaxxing. 

UPDATE 1/30/22: With the right President, all Americans can resume enjoying their basic, unrestricted rights again. The actions Trump took and promises to continue is proof of that. But for reasons only explainable by an honest psychiatric community and serious students of history, fully living a free life is the worst fear for an unhealthy percentage of nominally rational adults, here and everywhere. How is it that free people can go full doormat in the blink of an eye as demonstrated by the rise of pathetic Homo Covidus and his willfully blind dedication to a blatantly pro-crime political Party? On the bright side, there is hope when those same confused souls stop putting their unquestioned faith in the prevailing sources of information, look further afield and start asking serious questions.

UPDATE 1/29/22: What’s been and remains the real problem?  It’s not germs loosed on us by Communists and their American enablers. It’s human irrationality and the tendency of the masses to give up life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in favor of whatever sweet-smelling garbage Big Brother can get the Great Unwashed to consume. Such a diet of lies turns the masses into paranoid morons prone to follow anything their chosen masters decree as they wander blindly toward the corruption that will drown them.  The hold that mask/vaccine mandates still have over people, particularly the young, only gets worse.  Nothing is off-limits for the unrelenting political operatives, leaving no sacred spot in the mass psyche undefiled. Disney’s endearing 7 dwarves are the latest targets for remodeling in the Woke image, despite the fact they are fantasy creatures in fairy tales. 

We are being taken over by a mindset that begs for top-down control. Millions will not be happy until each and all of us are in cages. Even Doc, Sleepy, Sneezy and their brothers are not safe.

UPDATE 1/23/22: Australia continues to lead the parade of traditionally free nations moving with a terrifying ease into Covid inspired totalitarianism. The state of Western Australia seems to be outdoing itself in forcing its fractured notion of “public health” onto those New Lepers known as “anti-vaxxers.” The author apologizes for drawing comparisons to the Nazis who moved from similar purity and health policies into pegging a specific group to maintain the fear and tension necessary for their long range goals of complete domination. Like many, he is shy about making such a comparison. After all, the Nazis exterminated millions of Jews. The challenge to this shyness about making such comparisons today is, “Well, they had to start at A to get to Z.” And as demonstrated by the last two years and the worldwide lockdowns and damage already done, we’re already well past A, moving with great speed in places like Australia toward Q, R, & S. Maybe even Z.

Elderly Australian women harassed by police for sitting maskless in a park.

UPDATE 1/20/22: Our slide into what could be a nationwide Third World existence is the result of half the electorate’s suicidal support for a mad, headlong rush into Woke, Progressive perdition. From the elected Leftist Dem elites down to the lowliest subjects cheering on their chosen slave masters, we are acting out insanity. 

Things are not much better abroad. Much to the shock of freedom-loving Americans, Australia and New Zealand  now in the psychotic throes of Covid hysteria have outed themselves as totalitarian, groupthink tyrannies passionately hostile to dissenting individuals.  In a vocal majority including even their own “conservatives,”  Aussies & Kiwis are eager participants in their own enslavement, occupants of brutally rigid islands of total conformity.  They are programmed by inbred custom to (using their terms) “take the mick out of” those “tall poppies” who stand out or apart. The government is always right and to be obeyed, or as Kiwi madwoman Ardern stated, ““Dismiss anything else. We will continue to be your single source of truth.” Here as there, the villainized scapegoats have been identified and targeted as “the anti-vaxxers.”

Be afraid, be very afraid. The masses obediently singling out oddballs in the crowd as The Enemy is an ominous symptom of incipient tyranny.

UPDATE 1/4/22: Beware the delusional Utopian thinking that replaces God with BigGov.  We are living the consequences at the present, one of those dreaded historic/hysteric moments when mass psychosis has overtaken the world. The real virus afoot isn’t biological, it’s psychological. Face this ominous reality, build immunity to it or go mad with the mob.

ORIGINAL POST 6/19/15: When asking why those caught up in the contradictions of Leftist thinking aren’t amenable to reason and logic, look no further than Orwell‘s explanation of DoubleThink:

“The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them….To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies — all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth.”
— George Orwell, “Nineteen Eighty-Four”

“To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them. to forget any fact that has become inconvenient…”

Wonder no more why it’s so hard to call out Leftists as hypocrites. If there are no bounds to what they believe or claim to believe, who can fault them? They are all things to all people all the time, whatever’s convenient to the moment. Those Conservatives insisting on rock-solid principles and hard facts are easily branded “hypocrites” at the merest glimmer of human inconsistency or contradiction.

What better example of denying objective reality than a person who decides that He is a She; that she, despite being White, is Black. In both eerily conjoined cases (Bruce/Caitlyn, Rachel/R’chelle), there is Celebrity, Money, Power to be acquired. For the more sinister forces encouraging the dissolution of norms, customs, definitions, standards, constants, any bedrock under our feet, there is Mass Control.

Sound chillingly familiar? Behold GLOBAL WARMING (formerly COOLING, now conveniently changed in classic DoubleThink style to CLIMATE CHANGE  accommodating the fact that weather & climate change, irregardless of Man). MARRIAGE is no longer heterosexual, a man and woman. Even the term “homosexual” is now considered negative and hereby banned from polite conversation. Gender is no longer male and female. Race is no longer genetic. As the saying goes these days when faced with reality: WHATEVER.

Whatever indeed. Confusion, blurring of distinctions, the erasure of commonly held meanings, borders, boundaries, whatever contributes to the destabilization necessary for mass manipulation and control. Currently in the West, this relentless drive toward totalitarianism comes almost exclusively from the Left (those promising all the “entitlements” of life to the dependent masses courtesy of society’s productive members aka redistribution of wealth). By contrast, fanatic Islam (like Nazism before it) is straight-forward, overt, more unabashedly intent on control and domination, not into the gradual, psychological maneuvering that characterizes our Marxist manipulators.

THE GOOD NEWS is that we live in times of the widest and freest exchange of information ever possible. Freedom of speech, the First Amendment, seems to be in its heyday. On the other hand, this ability to reach millions in milliseconds has opened the door to the sinister forces of Mass Control, and the masses predictably are eager to be controlled. The immediate, very real  danger is the fear genuinely free-thinking individuals have for expressing unpopular, contrary politically incorrect thoughts and opinions. Social Media hounding, viral piling-on, public excoriation has become a tactic used against public figures, businesses or anyone taking a stand unacceptable to that dictated from today’s Left.

Just in case, you’ve never experienced that disturbing sense of isolation and fear of expressing yourself, spend five minutes with  your average cross-section of friends, neighbors and relatives and bring up Climate Change, ObamaCare, Gay Marriage or any key item on Obama’s Transformative menu. At the very least you will find yourself on the receiving end of an insult tirade or a chilly glare. (If looks could kill….) Legal action has always been a tried-and-true weapon for the rigidly intolerant Left. However delivered, the goal is to silence and isolate you.

Our Mission Impossible (which we have no choice but to accept!) is to continue speaking, thinking, writing, communicating freely and repeatedly with others who sincerely believe that individuals make up a free, civilized society, not mindless, robotic masses marching together in electronically-induced lockstep.
