THE REOPENING HOAX

    As we enter into the final week of May, we are going into the last week (supposedly) of reopenings. Now as we've also pointed out, most of these reopenings are completely fake; with the various scumbags in power only allowing partial and conditional activities. The Ameroboobs aren't questioning this any more than they questioned the original closures. 

   The Bolsheviks and the Mad Scientists advising them spout about maintaining 'social distancing' of at least 6 feet. Has anybody heard even one reason ever given as to why 6 feet distances make any difference? Why not 3 feet, or 10 feet? Let's see what the CDC has to say:

  "COVID-19 is a new disease and we are still learning how it spreads. The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to mainly spread from close contact (i.e., within about 6 feet) with a person who is currently sick with COVID-19."

  In other words, these jokers have no idea how it actually spreads; and 6 feet is just an arbitrary number. It should be noted that when the COVID was first discovered in bats, it was being transmitted to pigs in the Chinese Agricultural collectives. Dr. Fauci, among other Americans helped research its properties at the Wuhan Laboratory. They concluded then that the virus posed no threat of transmission to humans. The hog farmers in China with infected herds never came down with the disease. What's obvious is that this virus mutated in some way after 2018. 

  "The virus likely spreads primarily through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how influenza and other respiratory infections spread. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs."  the CDC explains. Which also explains the hysteria about wearing masks---which only a few weeks ago weren't recommended by the CDC. 

  Now the Social Engineers are not only requiring distancing, but mask-wearing as well. It's interesting that there are no recommendations whatsoever about the types of masks employed. During the outbreak of H1N1, the National Center for Health Research, wrote the following:

  "Facemasks, which refer to disposable masks like the ones health workers occasionally wear, are designed to block large particle droplets, splashes, and sprays from reaching the wearer’s mouth and nose. They are intended to be used once (for whatever period of time) and then discarded. Facemasks do not form a tight seal around the nose and mouth and so they can’t protect you from very small particles in the air transmitted by coughs or sneezes (such as virus particles that can be breathed in by the user)."

   In other words, most of the masks people are currently sporting in public are completely useless. What about the vaunted N-95 masks?

 "Unlike facemasks, respirators form a tight seal to the face. Respirators typically refer to CDC-certified N95 or higher filtering face pieces (meaning that they filter out 95% of airborne particles). They are primarily manufactured for use in construction and industrial jobs that expose workers to dust and small airborne particles. In order for respirators to be effective, they must be fitted properly according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines. Respirators are harder than facemasks to breathe through for extended periods of time and can cause skin irritation. CDC guidelines do not suggest respirators for children or people with facial hair."

  These are little better since (1) not all of them are OSHA-certified or are worn improperly; and (2) they aren't intended for long-term use. Speaking from experience here, I can point out that they are about as comfortable as military gas-masks, feel like you're trying to breathe through a cheesecloth after just a few hours, and absolute torture in hot weather. They're even worse outside in the rain. 




     The same political and academic charlatans who are pushing this nonsense are the same crowd who've been telling us that there are no gender differences but all men are potential rapists. They tell us that Global Warming is man-made; but can't predict the path of an ordinary windstorm. They told us that ISIS would be capable of attacking the US unless we overthrew the people who were actually fighting them. They've told us that gun control would stop mass shootings; that the 21-drinking age would stop DUI fatalities; that residual tobacco smoke is deadly but marijuana is harmless. All we have to do as good citizens is to pay our taxes, put up with 'inconveniences' and keep our mouths shut---because by sacrificing our liberties now we're securing an earthy paradise for our great-great grandchildren. 

   When will Americans stop believing these absurdities? All of this codswallop about the post-COVID society "changing our lives forever" is such an obvious smokescreen for ulterior motives that even a few moments of serious thought should dispel it. The Mad Scientists tell us that we can't return to ''fully normal" until a vaccine is discovered (which of course will be mandatory). They also have been blathering about a potential second outbreak of a stronger version and claim some disease among the children is a mutation of COVID-19. 

   While I'm not an anti-vaxxer, even Common Sense should tell anybody that an immunization for a virus that they can't define, don't know how is spread, and is potentially highly mutable either will not work at all or will cause a pandemic itself. The reason that vaccinations work against Polio, Smallpox, Measles, etc., is because these viruses have static properties which scientists have learned how to counter. Flu shots are not 100% effective because Influenza can mutate---although not radically. COVID-19 is apparently radically mutable---meaning that it can change form if met with antibodies. The earlier tests run by Dr. Fauci and his Chinese friends on the infected swine seem to confirm this thesis, however. 


   Speaking for myself, though, I doubt that a vaccine will be produced---and even if we get one it will only be a harmless placebo. The only protection it will actually provide is against political, social, and economic ostracism. 

  And that has been part of the scheme all along. Pundits are already planning for reshaping the Post-COVID World. The fact is that there is no 'Post-COVID World'. Just ask yourself---now that Bin Laden and Caliph Baghdadi are dead and Al-Qaeda and ISIS have been reduced to about the size of street gangs---how many temporary post 9/11 measures have been rescinded? 

  But in Postmodern America, where the mantra is "never let a good crisis go to waste," many will care as little about this as they did about 9/11. The Smart Boys and the Wise Guys know that nowadays principles are for suckers and that COVID restrictions equal a ground-floor opportunity. New Normals might bring poverty and slavery for most of us, but the guys who know how to work the system and make themselves acceptable to the Elites go laughing all the way to the bank.

COSTS OF THE COVID REBELLION

   At this particular phase of the Plan-demic (midway through Week 10), we're seeing fake 'reopenings' in most states. A lot of businesses aren't going to survive these frauds any more than they survived the lockdowns. Basically, small businesses have expended the 60-day supply of Federal bailout money and are opening with little or no capital, a lot of outstanding bills, heavy restrictions on their operations, and swarms of collaborators and secret police who will employ heavy-handed measures to enforce whatever edicts the various Commissars hand down. 

   A few places are opening without restrictions. Governor Mike Dunleavy of Alaska---a State which saw a grand total of 10 deaths related to COVID-19---announced yesterday that the State would be fully open tomorrow without restrictions. It's estimated by some analysts, based on preliminary figures, that 15% of Alaskan restaurants and at least that many stores in other retail sectors have already collapsed. A survey from Alaska's Chamber of Commerce  estimated that over half of State businesses had seen revenue decline by at least 51%. The estimated total loss for the State during the March-May 2020 period is between $2-4.1 billion. This seems a very high price to pay: and while I'm happy that Governor Dunleavy has set the State free again, I wouldn't want the damage he's caused to innocent lives on my conscience. 

  Alaska is a State with a low population and isn't facing severe restrictions any longer, but we can extrapolate from their figures as to what the Rebellion is going to cost the country at large. Today we already had the announcement that retail chain Pier One Imports has crashed after 58 years in business, taking 540 stores with them. 



   The last two weeks have seen the downfalls of several long-established enterprises. JC Penney filed for bankruptcy and ended up being delisted on Wall Street. And, as we've predicted, the box-stores are moving in for the kill. We should also mention the fall of several theater and movie chains:

   AMC, the largest theater chain in the US, a company founded in 1920, has closed permanently and is also about to be swallowed up by the too-big-to-fail boys. 661 US cinemas are gone with them.

   Regal Theaters, the 2nd largest chain, is not far behind, and expected by analysts to be in bankruptcy soon. 564 locations could be closed. 

   Cinemark, the 3rd largest with 346 theaters, so far has been solvent, but has been closing a number of locations recently.

    There have been many fatalities among privately-owned theaters, including a few historic locales.




  Among the casualties in the restaurant industry this week was a 55-store chain with affiliates in Seattle and California called Specialty's Cafe and Bakery. After 33 years of building, it has folded for good. Seattle also lost a landmark restaurant, The Brooklyn, open for 30 years will not reopen. 



   Los Angeles has lost Stan's Doughnuts, family-owned since 1965. Swingers, a late-night spot which was very popular during the 1990s folded last week. In San Francisco, analysts believe that half of the city's restaurants will not survive. Literally dozens have already gone down. Santa Barbara has lost Chuck's Waterfront Grill and The Endless Summer---two longstanding hangouts on the beach. 

  Souplantation, founded in San Diego in 1978 and grown into a large chain has closed; and with them all 97 of their outlets. Troy's Family Restaurant, family-owned since 1973 and Primavera Ristorante, family-owned since 1989 are both gone in San Diego among many others which have been building for decades. Thank you, Governor Newsom. 

  Portland has lost 11 restaurants and Oregon's famous World of Speed automotive museum is also unable to stay in business.



  There are many other "nonessential" economic sectors being hit by these restrictions. The Corporate Media is by-and-large ignoring all of this wave of destruction and instead yukking it up over President Trump's promotion of Hydroxychloroquine---which many doctors believe actually is effective against COVID. The Whacko Left Wing is in general though delighted with stories of business closures. The average Leftist is neurotically stimulated by failure and scandal among those better than themselves and their leaders are clearly enjoying the helplessness of the productive citizens now at their mercy.

   If any readers are victims of this Jacobin insanity, remember first and foremost that you and your circumstances are two different things. Economic failure at the hands of political psychopaths doesn't make you a 'loser' (despite whatever the MSM tells you) any more than losing your livelihood through a flood or an earthquake does. Remember that you're not alone, and also the words of the late Pope John which have inspired myself during tough times:



   If you have older friends or family, it is wise to talk to them too---as they've seen hard times and overcome them. If at all possible, join a protest movement in your State and speak out at relevant public gatherings. 

  Some on the Right have also given into despair---this is understandable, but it's not too late to take a stand. Yes, agreed---we're in deep trouble right now. But reflect in our history and consider how many other dirtbags have tried to bring us down (from within and without) and have failed. 



     The reopenings (in most states) aren't for real and the Elites are already floating the idea of a 'Second Outbreak' and have supposedly discovered viral mutations---neither of which they have any proof for. A few others are suggesting rotating lockdowns---all of which proves that they have no real intention of relinquishing their power. However, the 'reopening' an opportunity to organize a real resistance to turn back their plots.

A PRIMAL SCREAM FOR SANITY

   Many good articles and videos have come about recently as a growing number of Americans begin to see the 'pandemic emergency' for what it really is. What is going on is an open rebellion against the United States as an institution. This is very likely going to get worse despite all of the fake 'reopenings.' We'll have more to say about that as the 'Crisis' drags on---and we are now into the 10th Week of this national disgrace. 

   So there was a really good article yesterday at the blog Freedom Through Empowerment which featured a video of a fellow fed up with conditions in his home state. The article though, made excellent points in its own right. The writer understands the gravity of the situation that we're in right now. 

  She writes:"The negative effects of shutting down the largest economy in the world will play out for years to come.  The least we can do now is stop the bleeding by ending the shutdown.  Contact your governor and local representatives of course, but pro lockdown cultural narrative set by the MSM and most of the left must be overcome too and the only way to do that is by having uncomfortable conversations with friends, family and neighbors." 

  The negative economic impacts of which she speaks is one of the principle aims of the Rebellion. It's very important that Conservatives understand this fundamental point: their goal is not to destroy the US economy, but to replace it. The Middle Class, at all levels, is the target of this attack. The shutdowns and lockdowns were all directed at small and midsize business from the beginning; and these phony 'reopenings' with all their restrictions and conditions are aimed at them too. 

  Just as an example, there was a story in New York Newsday today in their Foods Section about the devastation that the thugs Cuomo and DeBlasio have ravaged on the restaurant industry. Communist pigs like these two want central distribution of foodstuffs: in fact, the neurotic ex-NYC mayor Bloomberg is in charge of implementing 'reopening' in New York. Bloomberg was notorious for imposing his phobias about food and tobacco upon the citizens of New York City---and now he has the entire state to release his mental illnesses. At any rate, economists project that at least 25% of NYC's restaurants will not survive; and the Middle Class is taking overall about a $2.6 billion loss so far. 

  The Paris Cafe---an upscale spot in the NYC Financial District since 1873---is permanently closed as of last week.  Another historic gathering place---the Gem Spa---which has been around since the 1920's is dead. Bloomberg and DeBlasio had an especial hatred for this place which had lately become a counter-culture hangout and often persecuted the owners pre-COVID. As a trivia note, this was the cafe where the famous New York Egg Cream was invented. 

  The Irish Cottage---family owned since 1960; the Gotham Bar & Grill---family owned since 1984; the Lucky Strike Bistro---since 1988: these are just a few of the better-known NYC spots that have died. The article lists about two dozen others that have been building service and reputation for 10-20 years. Now this, of course, is happening elsewhere too; but not being reported by anybody. 

  As for the big box stores and supermarket consortia, they are experiencing none of these evils. They were all allowed to remain open and their profits have been huge. The too-big-to-fail boys haven't been touched and are in fact poised to move into the void left by their destroyed competitors. 

  Tricia notes that:  "Government enforced poverty, shattered lives, increased spousal and child abuse, sky rocketing suicide and addiction rates, the scandalous trampling of civil liberties; this is THE issue of our time and more of us have to start acting like it is." I'm glad that she mentioned the human toll, which I've heard about anecdotally but these are issues covered up by the MSM. If we move into the kind of Socialism that the Elites plan for us, these things will get much, much worse. Under the pre-Trump Deep State, the statistics were already starting to climb. And what we learned after the USSR collapsed was that all of these evils were rife throughout Soviet society. 

  One important thing that has been noticeable under lockdown is that narcotics overdoses have jumped up an estimated 15%. This is because the Rebel Regimes have been prioritizing (alleged) COVID cases over other illnesses. The same mad scientists who've been encouraging governmental Crimes Against Humanity have been espousing forced euthanasia in hospitals. That this is the issue of our time ought to be obvious. When businesses can be declared nonessential in the economy and persons can be deemed superfluous in the medical system, it doesn't take much imagination to see where this is going. "All roads lead to Auschwitz" as the saying used to go.

  If anybody thinks this is just hyperbole and that it can't happen here; consider how many people have deceived themselves into believing that Abortion isn't really murder and go from there. "Oh, but that's different!" No it isn't, and you know that it's not. 

  Political Correctness and the passive acceptance of it have led us to where we are. Look at the sheer number of lies we've been fed---and accepted---over the last three decades. Just during the last Administration, we were forced to accept Global Warming and Homo Equality---why is surprising that COVID junk-science is believed? We saw private medicine absorbed into Obamacare---why is surprising now that Healthcare is being weaponized by politicians? We accepted Obama's Domestic Spying---now we're talking about contact tracing. Obama put invasive policies into 'airport security' for the 'privilege' of travelling---now despots are demanding we wear masks for the 'privilege' of going outside. Obama told us that Syria was a threat to world peace---no wonder people believe that COVID will kill millions. And Obama just built upon Bush Administration lies, as Bush built upon Clinton's. 

  "I honestly think there are a lot more of us out there who feel this way than those who don’t, but we’ve been conditioned to think this position is wrong and immoral and so we self censure.  This has to stop.  Now."

  Exactly, Tricia. If it doesn't stop soon, it's going to be too late.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

   May is typically a festive month with no shortage of holidays. If you're looking reason to celebrate during these gloomy times, there is something that can be done. While going through the news today, I learned something new: that May 15th is International Nylon Stockings Day. 


  This festive occasion falls on a Friday, so of course it extends into the weekend. Since we have a lot of female readers and followers here, we thought it best to remind all of you not to forget your civic holiday duties.


   And for male readers who have a damsel or a sister at home, we would encourage you to relate this information to the Fair One; stressing the importance of how we must all do our part during these trying times to keep public spirits high. This suggestion includes family men with daughters old enough to participate as well.


   So please feel free to share this article. With the Rainbow Left Wing and Low-T RINOs running up the score right now, Western men are in desperate need of inspiration. Ladies around the world can help turn the tide.


   Just remember that in the old Soviet Union, nylon stockings were about $50/pair on the Black Market. In a Soros/Gates/Inslee kind of world, we'd all be wearing those Chairman Mao suits---men and women alike in their brave new world of equality. So, ladies, throw away those disgusting pink hats and the Che t-shirts; break out the make-up kits and the high heels and get busy!

WISCONSIN SUPREME COURT KNOCKS OUT EVERS REGIME

  Wow---great news going into the weekend. This morning, by a 4-3 vote, the Wisconsin State Supreme Court declared that the policies of would-be dictator Tony Evers and his camarilla were unconstitutional and nullified all of them. 



   Wisconsinites were swift to do what liberated peoples have always done; rejected Communism with contempt as soon as the fear of police persecution was gone. 

   Governor Evers--- a pusillanimous little twerp who's spent most of his career in Wisconsin's Public Education bureaucracy---had set up a commission of three female doctors, headed by Dr. Andrea Palm, a former operative in the Obama Administration. Dr. Palm essentially drafted orders and Evers signed off on them: what a cuck. 

  "We are the Wild West!" Evers squawked to the Corporate Media,“There are no restrictions at all across the state of Wisconsin! There is nothing compelling people to do anything other than having chaos here! Today, Republican legislators convinced four members of the state Supreme Court to throw the state into chaos! They have provided no plan! We're going to have 72 counties doing their own thing! I can't believe there's a state in the nation with this type of chaos!"

  

  
  President Trump issued a statement congratulating the State on its liberation from tyranny. "The Great State of Wisconsin, home to Tom Tiffany’s big Congressional Victory on Tuesday, was just given another win. Its Democrat Governor was forced by the courts to let the State Open. The people want to get on with their lives. The place is bustling!"

A few Left-Wing enclaves in Wisconsin, mostly around Madison and Milwaukee, have vowed to keep Evers' restrictions in place, but it's doubtful that they can do much. Racine, for example, voted its support for Evers, but the County Sheriff has already said that he wouldn't enforce them.

The Court's decision not only struck down Evers' decrees, it flatly ruled that the Regime had no legal authority to impose them in the first place. This means, from a legal standpoint, that Evers and his Machine can be held both criminally and civilly liable for actions taken under the Occupation. Anyone arrested for violating these orders must be released and exonerated; anyone fined must be compensated---this is only the first layer of the legal onion peeled back.

Hopefully, what will follow next in Wisconsin is Evers' impeachment and subsequent trial. The Elites cannot be allowed to get away with what they've done. They must be taught that there are consequences for violating our Rights.





REOPENING UNDER THE HAMMER AND SICKLE

    In a late-breaking development today, WXII-TV in Winston-Salem, North Carolina is reporting that the FBI has raided the offices of Senator Richard Burr in connection with an Insider Trading Scandal. It's been alleged that Burr and an unknown number of other US Senators made some significant Stock Market trades after a private briefing shortly before the COVID Panic struck. 

   It's probably no coincidence that Burr's home-state has been one of the most repressive of the COVID conspirators' regimes. Governor Roy Cooper ordered mass-arrests of protesters last week and extended the statewide lockdown until May 22nd. Unfortunately, he hasn't been the only one cracking down on dissidents. In Illinois, Governor J.B. Pritzker announced that he would send his thugs into any county that disobeyed his edicts. “There is no consequence the state could impose that is greater than the harm that you will do to your own community,” the Governor stated rather ominously. However, there is a part of me that believes that Pritzker is seriously considering what consequences he could impose. 


   Pritzker said that "I don’t have sympathy for those so intent on disregarding science and logic, so afraid to tell their constituents what they may not want to hear — that they put more people's lives at risk. Local law enforcement and the Illinois State Police can and will take action." The Governor's rage is specifically directed at Madison County, which voted on Monday to nullify his orders. It's hard to say whether Pritzker will have the Iron Will to send stormtroopers into the area. But he and others like him seem intent on forcing a showdown. 

   These fake 'reopenings' that Occupation leaders are proposing are for show; as these police crackdowns and threats make clear. A recent report on Cincinnati station WLWT gives us the actual realities for reopened businesses. What's actually happening here is that most Federal programs subsidizing small businesses expire within 60 days. These restrictions are designed to allow businesses to reopen, but not under such conditions that they can actually recover financially. It's especially interesting to note that none of these people seem to be talking about any long-range plans beyond their silly 'phasing-in' schemes. What is worrisome, however, are the number of pundits who've been talking about the ways that they wish to see society change. 

   Among these changes proposed are mandatory vaccinations along with 'isolation communities' for nonconformists. Dr. Robert Levin and other mad scientists are already experimenting with such a program in California. So-called 'contact tracing' seems to factor in all these schemes. What that actually amounts to is domestic surveillance. But that became a New Normal a long time ago. Clinton, Bush, and Obama all did it, and nobody cared. Bush Sr. said that we needed it to fight the drug war. Clinton expanded it to fight the drug war and other federal crimes under the Omnibus Crime Bill of 1997. The latter was vastly expanded by Bush Jr. under the Patriot Act of 2002. Then, we supposedly needed it to fight terrorism. Obama, as Edward Snowden revealed, made domestic spying fairly universal---including through Obamacare. If we get through this 'Crisis', we---as a people---are going to have to do some serious soul-searching about our collective attitudes that took us to this place. 

   New York is also experimenting with such a scheme. The vile dictator Andrew Cuomo has put this project under the management of arch-Deep Statist, Michael Bloomberg. Cuomo said this, which should make us all pause and reflect:

  "Tracing is not hard on an individual basis -- the problem is the massive scale and with an operation that has never existed before. We need our contact tracing program to come up to scale to meet what we're doing with testing as soon as possible, and we are working with Mike Bloomberg now to build an army of tracers to meet the state's demand so we can begin this operation immediately."

  That's right, everybody. An army of tracers. Who serve under the command of Field Marshal Bloomberg, Governor Newsom also mentioned the need for a large number of police spies; and we've already mentioned that these blockheads have organized call centers and phone apps for informants. Now where would all these states hire these private armies contact tracers? 


 
   What is our national unemployment rate right now again? 

   As Leon Trotsky predicted: "In the United States, through the science of publicity and advertising, you have means for winning the support of your middle class that were beyond the reach of the soviets of backward Russia with its vast majority of pauperized and illiterate peasants. This, in addition to your technical equipment and your wealth, is the greatest asset of your coming communist revolution." 

  And today we stand at a crossroads whether we remain free or plunge into outright Communism. Trotsky's prediction in 1934 couldn't manifest itself because of the character of our people. Whether or not we still have the character to overcome remains to be seen.

THE VIRUS OF MASS DESTRUCTION

   So it was sunny this weekend, and I decided to take a few days off to practice Civil Disobedience. After all, living on the West Coast---behind the Pacific Iron Curtain---two forgotten holidays were afoot. First there was Thursday, May 8th. The 75th Anniversary of this day, 


   The Corporate Media, of course, swept this one under the rug: too many people might start drawing comparisons. Several cities out here did announce the cancellation of July 4th Celebrations---odd, considering all of their alleged reopening strategies are supposedly being implemented. 

  Sunday was Mothers' Day, which like upcoming Memorial Day was observed with gatherings forbidden. 


  This has been a Spring beyond the imagination of the Whacko Left Wing. Sure, Pride Parades were cancelled; but churches closed at Easter; veterans ignored; mothers kept from their families---and the delightful prospect of Independence Day forgotten must have them all giddy with excitement. 

  There has been some good news during the week. Texas Attorney-General Ken Paxton---a real Conservative who kept Texas' RINOs on a short leash during the 'Crisis'---announced today that localities could not enforce lockdowns. Which means that Texas has freed itself. And in Michigan, the Sheriff and County Executives of Shiawassee County have nullified any spurious orders emanating from the Whitmer Regime. 

  While on vacation, I had a chance to go through some articles and came across one titled The Virus of Mass Destruction by C.J. Hopkins. I don't know much about this author, he appears to be a Liberal but one of those rare types among them who actually thinks for himself. The article is worth reading; Hopkins seems to have a good grasp on where this is all heading. 

   "There comes a point in the introduction of every new official narrative when people no longer remember how it started. Or, rather, they remember how it started, but not the propaganda that started it. Or, rather, they remember all that (or are able to, if you press them on it), but it doesn’t make any difference anymore, because the official narrative has supplanted reality." he says; and this has been my greatest fear since this Rebellion began; the longer that these restrictions remain in place, the reasons for their imposition will recede from public consciousness. This is how 'New Normals' get created. 



  This is also why I'm deeply suspicious of this recent waves of 'reopenings.' In some States like Georgia, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and few others the lockdown is probably not coming back. In many of the others, the lifting of restrictions has been partial and conditional. Now that the Elites have taught us that our welfare depends wholly upon their will (or so they think); we---the little people---can be graciously given a few of our remaining liberties back. And these can be revoked at any moment if we don't behave ourselves.

  Hopkins alludes to this in historical contexts and then describes the practical result:  "These facts did not matter, not in the slightest. By that time, Westerners were totally immersed in the official War on Terror narrative, which had superseded objective reality. Herd mentality had taken over. It’s difficult to describe how this works; it’s a state of functional dissociation. It wasn’t that people didn’t know the facts, or that they didn’t understand the facts...People functioning in this state know that what they believe is not real. Nonetheless, they are forced to believe it (and do, actually, literally, believe it, as impossible as I know that sounds), because the consequences of not believing it are even more frightening than the cognitive dissonance of believing a narrative they know is a fiction. Disbelieving the official narrative means excommunication from “normality,” the loss of friends, income, status, and in many cases far worse punishments. Herd animals, in a state of panic, instinctively run towards the center of the herd. Separation from the herd makes them easy prey for pursuing predators. It is the same primal instinct operating here."

   What he's describing here is Political Correctness. Americans have been immersed in this kind of stupidity for the last three decades and our continual submission to the most overt injustices and humiliations have led us to where we are now. Incidentally, what Hopkins describes is the reason why Civilization's rise is also connected to human liberty. Civilization is about freeing mankind from the Herd Mentality. Our Faith teaches us that fear is not rooted in holiness; likewise our Founding Fathers taught us that Reason alone should dictate civil policy. The man rooted in Faith, guided by Reason and confident in his Freedom is already prepared for pursuing predators because his primal instinct is under the control of his mind. And a man like this knows that there are no predators to be feared these days; and that the real threats are from within the herd itself. 

   Hopkins sees this too and says: "It is the goal of every official narrative to generate this type of herd mentality, not in order to deceive or dupe the public, but, rather, to confuse and terrorize them to the point where they revert to their primal instincts, and are being driven purely by existential fear, and facts and truth no longer matter. Once an official narrative reaches this point, it is unassailable by facts and reason. It no longer needs facts to justify it. It justifies itself with its own existence. Reason cannot penetrate it. Arguing with its adherents is pointless. They know it is irrational. They simply do not care.
  "We are reaching this point with the coronavirus narrative. It is possible that we have already reached it. Despite the fact that what we are dealing with is a virus that, yes, is clearly deadly to the old and those with medical conditions, but that is just as clearly not a deadly threat to the majority of the human species, people are cowering inside their homes as if the Zombie Apocalpyse had finally begun."
   What especially sad to see is that, after thirty or so years of being imposed upon by one lying cheat after another with their politically-correct hoaxes, the American people seem to have learned nothing and Hopkins doesn't seem especially optimistic either. What's going to turn the tide against the Usurpers is the strength of local officials in what the Elites contemptuously refer to as Flyover Country. The cities are where the Herd Mentality has the most effectiveness. Regardless, we are in a pivotal moment in our Country's history and whether or not we continue as a free people hangs in the balance.
