The Sickness Gulag

Summary:
Americans – many of them – are so dumbed down they can be convinced that it’s reasonable to turn the country into a permanent Sickness Gulag in the name of a permanent war on germs – a war that cannot be won. Which may be just the point. Endless war – waged in the name of “health” – is the health of the state. It provides endless, limitless pretext for those who are the state – the officials and enforcers – to decree and punish. How does one object to this when the victims of this have been convinced that it is the only way to keep them breathing? Notwithstanding the evidence – including that which they see (or rather, don’t) with their own eyes. Fear supplants facts. Closes their eyes – and minds – to evidence, to reason. Such

Americans – many of them – are so dumbed down they can be convinced that it’s reasonable to turn the country into a permanent Sickness Gulag in the name of a permanent war on germs – a war that cannot be won.

Which may be just the point.

Endless war – waged in the name of “health” – is the health of the state. It provides endless, limitless pretext for those who are the state – the officials and enforcers – to decree and punish.

How does one object to this when the victims of this have been convinced that it is the only way to keep them breathing? Notwithstanding the evidence – including that which they see (or rather, don’t) with their own eyes.

Fear supplants facts. Closes their eyes – and minds – to evidence, to reason. Such as the bodies not stacking up.

Or not stacking up unusually.

Bodies are always stacking up. All of a sudden, this is redefined as abnormal. a “crisis.”

The current hysteria about Corona could just as easily have been manufactured in 2013 – a bad ordinary Corona (flu) year. 56,000 people died that year, from or because of the ordinary flu, according to the CDC. But it wasn’t a “crisis” because they didn’t create it.

Notwithstanding that “people died!” life went on as normal, then.

Not now.

Even though the metrics are similar. Elderly and health-compromised people are always more vulnerable to a cold/flu/corona becoming something worse – like pneumonia – and this can and does kill thousands of them every year.

It’s sad – but not abnormal.

The current reaction to it, however, is.

My state has about 8.5 million people in it; about 500 have died because of (or with) Corona. One stands a better chance of being struck by lightning than being felled by Corona, by the numbers. But the state doesn’t order the entire population to “shelter in place” when it thunderstorms.

This would be considered ridiculous – as well as evidence of severe (and irrational) anxiety disorder on an individual basis. We used to treat people so afflicted. What’s changed is that everyone is expected to mime being afflicted – and those who refuse to play along are rapidly being “framed” as the ones with mental problems, soon to be punished for their aberrant normalcy.

The world turn’d upside down.
