“In any bureaucracy, the people devoted to the benefit of the bureaucracy itself always get in control, and those dedicated to the goals the bureaucracy is supposed to accomplish have less and less influence, and sometimes are eliminated entirely…. In any bureaucratic organization there will be two kinds of people: those who work to further the actual goals of the organization, and those who work for the organization itself. Examples in education would be teachers who work and sacrifice to teach children, vs. union representatives who work to protect any teacher including the most incompetent. The Iron Law states that in all cases, the second type of person will always gain control of the organization, and will always write the rules under which the organization functions.”
Jerry Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy
Den Beste’s Law: “The job of bureaucrats is to regulate, and left to themselves they will regulate everything they can.”
What we have learned from the Peking Pox:
I called this a fraud on 16 March 2020. I still stand by that. The country is at a turning point and the economy, for what it is worth, may be permanently injured in a way for which there is no going back. This is not prohibition of alcohol, another spectacular government success, but a slick means to prohibit private entrepreneurship. Never in the history of the country has the government stepped in outside of wartime and closed and shuttered private means of earning a living. Now, has the state regulated the fuck out of all above-ground means of production? Of course, but when has the state ever stepped in and insisted all of its serfs stop tax-producing activity? Grok that and you will see the unintended consequences of the national house arrest, it will permanently change the country forever and the advantage will slip to the government once again as they insist on borrowing on the unconsenting legions of children yet born to fill septic tanks and pay zombies to watch TV.
Government will always be terrible, incompetent and fulfill the worst nightmares any tyrant can envision.
Once the scientifically illiterate goons in government start providing perverse incentives, subsume all comorbidity to assignment of Peking Pox as the primary slayer and then adjust models whose input is not only wrong but maliciously incorrect, the ends make for a wicked cocktail of incompetence and totalitarianism[.
Are you entertained yet?
You can’t fix stupid and the CDC, like so many of the assisted living facilities for the eminently unemployable in Mordor on the Potomac, is filled to the brim with the intellectually lame, morally stunted and sociopathic scum that is the human coin of the realm in the Federal government.
We need to stop with all the data manipulation … algorithms… data homogenizing … smoothing … poor data quality, etc. Just stop. The purpose of all this data manipulation is political. It has nothing to do with reality or actual health.
It is only about control.
Please refer to Table B on page 6: 2017 NVSR 68 [A malignant neoplasm is cancer].
Latest numbers for the globe are here for the Peking Pox but who the fuck knows what is being reported?
Even so, the death total from Covid19 is _______. We had better get cracking, we have long way to go before the USSA surpasses deaths from seasonal flu.
Comrade Fauci has a long history of scientific illiteracy, and at 79 apparently suffers the same mental fate of Sleepy Joe, but he fakes it well. He thieved a princely 384,000 dollars as an apparatchik in the NIH in 2018.
Comrade Fauci has a reputation for being terribly wrong.
“Then, as now, Fauci mastered manipulating the press. He quickly dismissed other scientists with ad hominem attacks, claiming that the risk to the general population of HIV/AIDS was orders of magnitude larger than it actually was. In fact, HIV/AIDS transmissions in the United States outside of the intravenous drug user and homosexual community remain extremely rare.”
The Mango Emperor may have managed to torpedo whatever success he had with the economy by listening to the Deep State nomenklatura who simply can’t resist the totalitarian temptation whenever it presents itself. The communist governors have been spectacularly unmasked for the power hungry psychopaths they are from sea to shining sea.
The coproaches have proven to be a reliable violence tool for the usual suspects arresting everyone in sight they are pointed at no matter how peaceful the infraction.
Surfers across the nation are being bullied and harassed by cops, of course.
Another surfer in Israel was heroically saved from spreading the Peking Pox by an intrusion of coproaches (like a raft of turkeys or a murder of crows, roaches are “instrusions”) mobbing him on the beach.
Coproaches gonna coproach.
And anyone who hasn’t been paralyzed in a skiing accident from the neck up knows that the usual suspects among the considerable communist intelligentsia in the US are secretly celebrating the deaths, unemployment, mass closures, bankruptcies and the whole gruesome spectacle of government utterly destroying the livelihoods and life achievements of millions of subjects on the tax plantation named America.
There is only one solution: refuse all government edicts and increase herd immunity at all costs. The more society becomes dependent on vaccines, the more society WILL become dependent on vaccines. We need to actually get rid of products that make us cleaner and more antiseptic to allow our immune systems to stay functional. It is, after all, additional sanitary conditions that led to the polio outbreaks in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s….the polio antibodies that had been transmitted from mother to child in utero were pretty much gone leaving that generation open for the outbreak.
Why did the filthy Europeans decimate aboriginal populations in North America when they showed up in the 16th century onward?
It turns out that bullshit kills.
