The grey Curtain Descends, part 1

Authored with the aid of Robert Gore by way of Straight Line logic,

Let’s dispense with the obscenity that expressed intentions excuse all crimes and penalties.

It’s a detailed contest between which officially permitted story is extra incredibleCoronavirus because the Scourge of Humanity or the united states’s Free and reasonable Election. the previous enabled the latter, and they were propagated by means of the same individuals pursuant to an all-in vigour seize. both are riddled with obvious inconsistencies and fraud, none of which might be mentioned in well mannered society.

It become peculiar, she concept, to reap news by using ability of nothing however denials, as if existence had ceased, data had vanished and most effective the frantic negatives uttered by using officials and columnists gave any clue to the reality they had been denying.

Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand, 1957

The experiences’ propagators don’t address the inconsistencies and fraud because they could’t; they without problems deny their existence. They suppress questions, inquiry, and exploration of genuine evidence and facts, and promote senseless slogans. The legacy media censorship has been overt, but no longer as beneficial as hoped, thanks in giant part to the option media. The censorship itself is a red flag. If the authorised studies are Shining certainty, why can’t they endure problem?

The propagandists are suppressing free inquiry and debate, and that they’re about to dispose of it absolutely. With subsequent month’s ascension of Biden and Harris and the predatory and parasitic ruling cabal to which they reply, the prize is in website. They see no need to continue feigning fealty to the rest apart from subjugation and manage.

For essentially the most part they’ve even dropped their shopworn rhetoric of subject for their topics. within the good historical days there turned into “for the individuals” codswallop with the goodies, which you acquired provided that you did what you were instructed. the new diktat may be to do as you’re informed or else, but there can be no candies; governments are bankrupt and the ruling cabal has no means to produce. They will not be stricken by means of destitution and deaths among the many dominated, that’s a function, no longer a computer virus. indeed, any detectable subject could be grounds for immediate expulsion from the cabal.

Let’s dispense with the obscenity that expressed intentions excuse all crimes and consequences. Totalitarianism has under no circumstances produced anything else but destruction, destitution, and demise and on no account will, in spite of the totalitarians’ lofty rhetoric. Totalitarians are vultures, not eagles, and the existing kettle of vultures intend to dine on the corpse of background’s most superior civilization.

Draft animals work harder for a morsel or kind words than for the whip or swap, however by some means humans are distinctive. Whips, switches, prisons, and subjugation pave the street to utopia. after they as a substitute lead to a charnel residence, that’s now not the fault of the whippers, switchers, wardens, or subjugators. except it’s. Orwell pointed out it optimal: “the article of vigor is power.” vigor’s trite slogans and rationalizations don’t excuse its murderous depredations, they simplest raise its inescapable guilt.

Compromise between decent and evil spells loss of life for the decent. If I ask you to drink a cup of cyanide and also you refuse, but we compromise on half a cup, who wins?

It’s these type of compromises, exacted bit by bit over decades, which have destroyed a as soon as great nation. It’s understandable how it happened. There’s an issue and greater energy for the rulers is all the time the answer: a Civil struggle, primary bank fiat debt, an profits tax, make the world protected for democracy, a brand new Deal, Frontier, or Covenant, Hope and alter, chief of the Free World, wars on poverty, medicine, terror, and now, germs, and so forth.

The compromises serve as precedents that launch the next compromises and consequent govt accretions of energy. (The Civil conflict become precedent for both the profits tax and fiat forex forty eight years later.) options are always offered in a blinding blaze of propaganda. There are always the unblinded few who query and dissent. they’re at all times ostracized or worse.

The leisure be taught the lesson. Herd habits is complicated-wired. Like a pack of wildebeests after one spots a lion, there are times when reflexive flight is the appropriate response. however, nothing executive does is short satisfactory to be considered reflexive; there’s been time ample to question, analyze, and protest well-nigh every thing the us govt has achieved due to the fact that its inception. regrettably, at the particular person level, sticking with the pack regularly makes ultimate sense. To be the one who refuses to obey, or to even query the dictates of a powerful government it truly is each stoking and making the most of herd frenzy, is to risk wreck, imprisonment, and often, death.

the crowd does what the crowd does. regardless of the arguments, and maybe the insults and deprecations from the few outdoor the gang, it rationalizes its own behavior. who’re we to question? It’s still a great nation, it can be worse. Why possibility our comfy subculture for intangible principles? stronger safe than sorry. And there’s the secret notion: yes, there may be unlucky consequences, but I’ll be useless by using then.

except the unlucky consequences have arrived. We’re confronted through a dystopian totalitarianism the design of which the totalitarians aren’t any longer trying to hide. virtually everything has already been compromised and the meager remnant of freedom is on the desk. because the crowd is prodded into the cattle cars (now not social distancing, their smartly-being now not even a faux situation) uneasy whispers flow into: is the ultimate vacation spot the abattoir?

although flimsy the excuses provided through the ruled were, they’ve at least had the usual rationalizations of cowardice. There’s no excuses or rationalizations for our rulers. They wish to impoverish, subjugate, or kill us. Don’t supply them too tons credit believing the latter isn’t the preferred alternative. Such deeds never spring from causes apart from all-encompassing, unremitting malice and hate. The sincere and honorable are left to ask yourself what, if anything, has replaced these forfeited souls. We may also by no means know the reply.

What do they get from their brave new world? including to their already mammoth fortunes? nonetheless more vigor over an impoverished, cowed population, greater transhuman robots than americans, dutifully following orders but unable to provide anything else past what is programmed into their quantum microchips, bereft of the sparks of inquiry, innovation and joy that propels humanity and make existence price residing? Do they not know that a gray curtain will descend over the unbelievable world of wealth and privilege they now inhabit? That turning individuals into appliances plugged into an all-seeing internet will go away each person in a electric powered panopticon that’s as sterile and joyless for the watchers as the watched?

The gray curtain descends. What extra demonstration is integral of impoverish, subjugate, and kill than Coronavirus totalitarianism, which has performed all three? It’s the preview of coming sights. The last flimsy excuse for the ruled is the one which would possibly be offered by roadkill if it wasn’t useless: it changed into too shocked via the headlights to believe or act. The second is nigh: you’ll be totalitarian roadkill if you’re too greatly surprised by means of the brazen evil unfolding to think and act, now.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are not any greater the rightful president and vp than i might be the rightful proprietor of your apartment if I forced my means in, held a gun to your head, and made you signal over the deed. not like the solipsistic plaints after President Trump gained a semi-respectable election in 2016 (“now not my president!”), Joe Biden aren’t my or any one else’s rightful president in 2021. (The 2016 election probably turned into rigged—for Hillary—the riggers simply didn’t do an ample job, unlike 2020.) Biden and his associate in crime are usurpers and SLL will now not refer to both one with the aid of their stolen titles. except the inauguration SLL will confer with Biden as no longer Our President-go with, or NOPE. They’re small gestures, but revolutions birth with small gestures.

NOPE and Vice-NOPE can be nominal capos of the greatest organized crime syndicate in heritage. Unchallenged crime and evil aren’t static; they get worse. Investing any hope in “issues will get better” has been a loser for more than a century. Governments generally do nothing however get worse—extra taxes, greater laws and rules, greater debt, extra fiat fraud, more wars, extra corruption, and greater energy—because the freedom of people who have to reside beneath them vanishes.

Hope without motion is not a technique, however there’s cause for hope if it’s coupled with action.
