We are in perilous times, witnessing the release of a massive and all-consuming power from its residence of hiding. I do not believe this to be a new force, but rather always resident and overseeing human affairs. It takes residence behind virtue signalling, as in allowing free elections, but in reality does not bother to count votes and decides well in advance on the people placed in high office. Such “elected” people are sworn to uphold laws, again, mere virtual signalling. As we have seen all around the globe, governments have meekly stepped aside and allowed medical Nazis to take control of our lives. That force, whatever its true nature, is the sovereign, the power that all officials at all levels are serving.
That in mind, I decided to review some of the crowning achievements of civilized order, documents put in place for the protection of human beings against coercive force. I will list the pertinent sections of each. Keep in mind that none of these documents have legal force unless ratified by or mentioned in treaties, and that is beyond my scope here. For now, I just want to list rights have been asserted and signed onto by states all over the globe.
ThePsychology of Pandemics: Preparing for the Next Global Outbreak of Infectious Disease by Steven Taylor, published in 2019.
I am taking a detour from my research on AI and pandemics to introduce the above book. I have not seen it covered elsewhere.
We often talk about predictive programming in fiction — movies, TV shows, novels … rarely do we discuss predictive programming in non-fiction — in reality. In this sense, this book reads like a playbook for this current pandemic, the psychological operation, or psyop.
There is a propaganda technique I have seen in use elsewhere, as with climate change, and certainly with germ theory and vaccinations. I would like give it a name and place it alongside other logical fallacies like ad hominem, post hoc ergo propter hoc, appeal to authority, etc. I think of it as smug arrogance.
It is the technique of argumentation where the proponent of an idea assumes himself right on all matters and therefore immune from criticism. He snidely dismisses criticism, censors opponents, and attach to them such epithets as “conspiracy theorist” or “denier.” Continue reading “A new logical fallacy”→
I am a little bit spooked right now, seeing that Covid-denial is reason for shutting down a podcast. Can I be far behind? Why am I even here now? I can only think I fly under the radar. Nonetheless, If this were my last post, this would be my last post. I sincerely hope to be around for a long time. I do not know our future.
If still around, I will introduce a new fallacy to add to the list in the post after this. I also have a piece, a good piece, by Stephers ready to go. Sorry to make you wait, Steph. Ty, Steve, Faux, Maarten, throw in. Continue reading “Me and Chainsaw Bob”→
Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you’re always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away
We better stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Those words from the song For What It’s Worth were supposedly penned by Stephen Stills. I say supposedly because authorship of rock songs is like fatherhood, always subject to doubt. The song, said to be the “anthem” of the 1960s, was, according to Dave McGowan (fake death 11/22/15), in his book Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon, written about kids protesting closure of a night club. Says McGowan (page 161):
This is the new “medicine.” Vaccines for humans and animals. Synthetic methodology. YOU are going to become the GMO. Play their game, give then your saliva, swab, blood, and they will give you your “digital twin.” Get it?
Introducing the “RNA” printer. Oh, goody. Machines have taken over. Time to deal with it, dear humans. Fear is creating hypnotic psychosis worldwide. $$$$$$ billions per year.
THEY (evil elite money grubbers) need your data. What you gonna’ do?
So pissed! Don’t offer your body to these pirates. Thanks, Stop the Ride.
