Like Cordwood

Summary:
The old lady in the iconic Burger King commercial used to screech Where’s the Beef? Well, where are the bodies? Of not-elderly/otherwise-healthy people stacking up like cordwood. I drove by my local hospital yesterday in downtown Roanoke (it’s a big regional trauma center, Roanoke Memorial) and did not see refrigerator trucks of corpses or any sign that anything was out of the ordinary. This Black Death – as it’s been advertised – is supposed to be so remorselessly lethal that, by now, surely there’d be clear evidence (bodies) stacking up such that we’d all realize that acquiescing to virtual imprisonment, losing our jobs – and destroying the economy – is a price that has to be paid. Well, that’s what we’ve been told. In the

Well, where are the bodies?

Of not-elderly/otherwise-healthy people stacking up like cordwood. I drove by my local hospital yesterday in downtown Roanoke (it’s a big regional trauma center, Roanoke Memorial) and did not see refrigerator trucks of corpses or any sign that anything was out of the ordinary.

This Black Death – as it’s been advertised – is supposed to be so remorselessly lethal that, by now, surely there’d be clear evidence (bodies) stacking up such that we’d all realize that acquiescing to virtual imprisonment, losing our jobs – and destroying the economy – is a price that has to be paid.

Well, that’s what we’ve been told. In the manner of the urgent necessity of attacking Iraq, in order to prevent “weapons of mass destruction” from resulting in “mushroom clouds” coming to America. Or communists – via the “dominoes” and Vietnam.

They came anyway, of course – but long before some 50,000 Americans and many times that number of Vietnamese were slaughtered for the sake of (here it comes again) “our freedoms.”

Which all of a sudden we no longer have anymore.

Not even the freedom to go for a walk in some parts of Hut! Hut! Hutted! America. We’re forbidden to work – or so stymied that working is effectively not possible. Yet we will be obliged to pay what are styled “our” taxes. A strange notion, that. Of a piece with “we” won the football game on TV the other night (when games were still allowed). But that’s another rant.

Oh, there are now hundreds of thousands of “cases” of Corona – the virus, not the beer. But there aren’t even tens of thousands of dead, which ought to be the only thing of interest to people, assuming they aren’t retarded people. The body count is the only way to determine whether Corona is generally lethal or just generally infectious.

This is a really important distinction that requires some critical thinking – which is a problem because it has been systematically purged from the minds of millions of Americans, chiefly via government schools, which of course is the purpose of government schools.

They are not charitable institutions.

They serve the interests of those who own and run them – which isn’t you or me or the parent of any child “educated” within. The children do learn things, though. Chiefly, the acceptance of arbitrary rules issued by arbitrary authority – so as to not recognize arbitrariness or object to it as obedient adults.

Look around. Look how obediently people – not all, but a despairingly large number of them – not only fail to question the “locking down” of their lives (and livelihoods) but demand it – and demand that the few critical thinkers who weren’t stunted by their “education” in government schools who question it be treated as criminals.
