Publisher’s Note: The Peter Principle informs all government action, prove me wrong. What you are witnessing live before your very eyes is a culmination of decades of government supremacist indoctrination that has rendered common sense obsolete, economic illiteracy fashionable and haute couture and the expert culture on display in all its fabulist glory.
Fuck the media, these retards have been whistling past the graveyard their entire lives. Urinalists have lived in a Marxoid house of mirrors for so long, they have no idea which way is up and what truth even looks like.
In medical terms, what you are seeing is the most Technicolor iatrogenic circus show in American history.
As I have said before, you have an unparalleled opportunity to do your gaps analysis right now on preparations and your training for the coming spicy time [h/t to Pete at WRSA].
“You really don’t have enough food, fuels, meds, ammo, shovels, or woodchippers, along with hard-hearted trained and provisioned friends who will stand by you when things move from “frisky” through “spicy” to “SPORKY”.
My youngest son is a Marine and he said the Corps is nothing more than “an anarchist factory now…”
Don’t think this very expensive thirty-day plus trial of communism will be lost on your zookeepers. They are taking very careful notes and smiling approvingly as their little serf-puppets run from one end of the plantation to the other whenever they pull the strings.
There is even a rumbling of a special praetorian guard in Mordor on the Potomac descending there to defend the government supremacists from…something.
Truly, Three Blind Mice is the national anthem.
If you get a chance, read the entire 1974 Commencement address by the brilliant Richard Feynman if you get a chance, worth every minute. Get to the range. -BB
“Close contact between science and the practice of collective farms and State farms creates inexhaustible opportunities for the development of theoretical knowledge, enabling us to learn ever more and more about the nature of living bodies and the soil.”
Comrade-Scientist Trofim Lysenko
“Renowned physicist Richard Feynman coined the phrase “cargo cult science” based on such cults. The term draws a metaphor for research which is polluted by the mind’s tendency to cherry-pick evidence that supports the desired outcome. Though it is tempting to look down on these islanders for their misguided assumptions, they are simply an extreme example of this very human bias. For them it was easier to believe that the control towers, headsets, and runways were the cause of the cargo-carrying airplanes rather than an effect, so they closed their minds to alternative explanations.”
– Gerry Matlack, 2007
“Now it behooves me, of course, to tell you what they’re missing. But it would he just about as difficult to explain to the South Sea Islanders how they have to arrange things so that they get some wealth in their system. It is not something simple like telling them how to improve the shapes of the earphones. But there is one feature I notice that is generally missing in Cargo Cult Science. That is the idea that we all hope you have learned in studying science in school—we never explicitly say what this is, but just hope that you catch on by all the examples of scientific investigation. It is interesting, therefore, to bring it out now and speak of it explicitly. It’s a kind of scientific integrity, a principle of scientific thought that corresponds to a kind of utter honesty—a kind of leaning over backwards. For example, if you’re doing an experiment, you should report everything that you think might make it invalid—not only what you think is right about it: other causes that could possibly explain your results; and things you thought of that you’ve eliminated by some other experiment, and how they worked—to make sure the other fellow can tell they have been eliminated.
Details that could throw doubt on your interpretation must be given, if you know them. You must do the best you can—if you know anything at all wrong, or possibly wrong—to explain it. If you make a theory, for example, and advertise it, or put it out, then you must also put down all the facts that disagree with it, as well as those that agree with it. There is also a more subtle problem. When you have put a lot of ideas together to make an elaborate theory, you want to make sure, when explaining what it fits, that those things it fits are not just the things that gave you the idea for the theory; but that the finished theory makes something else come out right, in addition.
In summary, the idea is to try to give all of the information to help others to judge the value of your contribution; not just the information that leads to judgment in one particular direction or another.”
– Dr. Richard Feynman, Commencement at CalTech 1974
All root causes have many fathers, many vectors for an explanatory framework for why things happen the way they do, the saga of the Peking Pox provides future historians with many opportunities to discover just what made this galactic tail risk episode what it is. All the usual suspects have made claims for knowing exactly what we’re facing. Not a particularly vicious flu season but a goddamned Biblical apocalypse which threatens the very fabric of modern civilization.
Hence the importance of governments planet-wide rushing to impose every manner of tyrannical and ill-conceived centrally planned nonsense that has always made any human calamity worse by orders of magnitude. They can’t help themselves because it is all they know.
You won’t find me parsing the nonsensical and shamanesque grotesqueries of Comrades Birx or Fauci or any of the other “government health” frauds at the hilariously contranymic Center for Disease Control; when not chasing the phantoms of gun violence (is hanging rope violence?) or racism or salt, the CDC is yet another government clown posse who couldn’t predict a sunset much less the verities of viral outbreaks.
“But at the moment, they’re not allowed to do that without FDA approval. When the United States declared the outbreak a public health emergency on 31 January, a bureaucratic process kicked in that requires FDA’s “emergency use approval” for any tests. “The declaration of a public health emergency did exactly what it shouldn’t have. It limited the diagnostic capacity of this country,” Mina says. “It’s insane.”
I have mentioned Lysenko in the past.
“Like the Soviet Union itself, the “science” of Trofim Lysenko has been consigned to the dustbin of history. Yet the dangers of Lysenkoism—of subsuming biology to ideology—continue to lurk.”
He is the patron saint of all government science and the palatial CDC offices in Atlanta should have a 120 foot statue of him erected in front of the ugly building where all the government “workers” (I call it assisted living) toil away wasting the six and a half billion dollars stolen for the agency every year from the very workers idled at home or who have lost their jobs. Now their great grandchildren get to shuffle under the burden of the inflationary stimulus nonsense as the Treasury prints paper and creates digits to send idled workers sufficient monies to fill their septic tanks. Not only do the numbers not add up but thanks to the CDC’s directive on assigning Peking Pox on the death certificate if the deceased patient’s boyfriend’s janitor’s son read an article about Chinese Bat Soup recipes. I talked about this in the previous article. Here we have the classic dilemma for all government: do we save lives or act like we are and aggrandize our power over the tax serfs in unprecedented ways so we don’t let a crisis go to waste.
“In cases where a definite diagnosis of COVID–19 cannot be made, but it is suspected or likely (e.g., the circumstances are compelling within a reasonable degree of certainty), it is acceptable to report COVID–19 on a death certificate as “probable” or “presumed.” In these instances, certifiers should use their best clinical judgement in determining if a COVID–19 infection was likely. However, please note that testing for COVID–19 should be conducted whenever possible.”
Of course, the Mango Emperor seems to be oblivious to the damage wrought by forcing a supposedly free people under mass house arrest. For egregious examples of the national socialists’ will to power just take a look at the exploits of the Dear Leaders in NY, NJ and Michigan where 60 percent of all.
No one can rely on any of the innumeracy coming out of the cake holes of the self-anointed (but accurately named “government health professionals), theirs is a vocation devoted to ensuring the health of the state above all else.
Have no doubt that the gutting and rendering of reproducible science, the whoring of basic science research to political fancies and the “climate alarmist” lobotomizing of scientific empiricism has led us to this point in concert with the ceaseless desire on the part of the most well-fed communist fifth column in the history of the planet to turn every human endeavor to the wheel of the state.
Take a good hard look around you at the family, friends and neighbors you see bowing and scraping before every foolish edict coming out of the asshole under the nose of every power-mad politico in America. There is one sure way to defeat viral contagion and that is herd immunity which doesn’t get stronger under mandated self-isolation.
Flu shots don’t protect you, exposure to the mass body of contagions that is your local human community does.
Hide and ye shall reap the rewards of your cowardice.
Fear is the mind killer. In this case, it will also actually kill you in the flesh.
