Thinking Points, November 12, 2022
Midterm elections, big picture, neoliberalism, the dynamics of bigotry, normalization, vaccine injury in everyday life, disintegration, systems thinking, supporting young couples, your moment of Zen
Here are my latest thinking points:
My initial thoughts on the midterm elections
My takeaways are that it was a very good night for Ron DeSantis:
He is outspoken in his support for medical freedom.
He crushed Charlie Crist by 19 points. (To put this in context, the last 3 elections for governor in Florida were decided by 1% or less.)
DeSantis showed that medical freedom is a winning political issue.
Ron DeSantis instantly becomes the front-runner for President in 2024:
He was the best governor in the country during Covid.
He actually reads the science for himself.
He surrounds himself with brilliant advisors including his Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo.
Voters, both Republicans and Democrats, rewarded his technical competency during a crisis — both Covid and Hurricane Ian.
Furthermore, the two Senators who most strongly identify with the medical freedom movement, Ron Johnson and Rand Paul, were both re-elected.
But it was a bad night for Trump:
Many of the high profile candidates he endorsed underperformed (Mehmet Oz may have cost Republicans the Senate).
He’s been in politics for over 6 years now and he still does not have a proper Get Out The Vote operation (and he never will).
Trump still does not understand the medical freedom issue. He continues to brag about Operation Warp Speed even though he gets booed every time he mentions it and even though there is fairly good evidence that Covid-19 shots killed Ivana — his ex-wife and the mother of three of his children.
At this point his charisma is not enough to overcome his obvious policy failures.
Maureen, Amy, and I talked for about an hour and covered a lot of ground. At the end of the interview I outlined some ideas for what we must do politically going forward.
You have to get the big issues right
Someone needs to pull all of the bougiecrats aside and let them know that none of their accomplishments mean anything if they are participating in the iatrogenocide.
It’s like being a really successful German, in 1944.
The academic critique of neoliberalism was a Maginot Line that once again failed to contain fascism
The academic left spent 50 years critiquing neoliberalism. Some of the scholarship was very good. Different varieties, mechanisms of action, and root causes were identified. And then in 2020, when neoliberalism reached its apotheosis — when the corporate state literally demanded that everyone sacrifice their own grandparents, parents, children, and themselves in order to enrich the pharmaceutical industry — nearly all of these tenured critics of neoliberalism went silent.
Indeed, many academic bastions of the neoliberal critique became the biggest cheerleaders of the iatrogenocide.
Why does academia even exist if, when the fate of the world is on the line, they can so easily be turned into glassy-eyed agents of the state?
The irony though is that the iatrogenocide is the fulfillment of everything that these people wrote about for half a century, they just lack the stones to do anything about it or even write the final chapter. Pretty disappointing really.
The dynamics of bigotry
The bigotry that we face in the movement is next level. I guess that means that I had a pretty privileged life up until joining the movement (because I had not experienced bigotry before). But it’s still wild to experience raw bigotry up close on an almost daily basis. Like everyone in the movement, I have blood relatives, formerly dear friends, and colleagues who treat me like I was shat out by Satan himself because I oppose the iatrogenocide. I’m the same guy I always was — I talk the same, a bit older, a bit more credentialed, and a tad wiser. But now hate is blasted toward me just for existing. How are we to understand this bigotry?
We have some historical examples in the form of Nazism and Jim Crow. In both cases, the claim was that this is not bigotry per se but rather “these people” had made a “choice” that “risked the health” of the rest of society. The Nazis claimed that Jewish ghettos were necessary to prevent a typhus epidemic and racists in the U.S. claimed that separate drinking fountains were necessary because of “the curse of Ham.” In both cases the mainstream society relied on junk science and they did so because it produced power, control, and a sense of superiority.
For the bigotry that is directed against us… I think the mechanism of action is twofold — fear and shame. If we are right (we are) then it means that society is much worse than they imagined (it is). And it also means that they have a moral responsibility to speak out against powerful forces in society. But bougiecrats are cowards, their entire existence is defined by fitting in and not questioning the status quo (except in socially approved ways). So our very existence makes them feel shame — we document the horrors of our society and they know that they will never speak out against it. So it’s just easier for them to reject and gaslight us than to confront their own moral failings.
At least that’s how I’m seeing it right now. How do you see it?
Late stage capitalism can normalize just about anything
after childhood shots.
So yeah, of course they are going to normalize:
sudden adult death syndrome
following Covid shots.
That’s the system that we are fighting to overthrow.
Normalization, part II
Vaccine injury is so incredibly corrosive to society. It takes the human condition and inflames it past the breaking point. Vaccine injury in everyday life looks like:
men and women picking fights with each other for no reason;
teachers quitting because the children are unruly;
reading a book, watching a movie without interruption, or sitting through a church service become intolerably long;
road rage, car accidents, small plane crashes;
the military having trouble recruiting;
supply chain issues because there are not enough workers;
addiction, mental illness, chronic pain, suicide;
school shootings, mall shootings, grocery store shootings, workplace shootings;
doctors and scientists unable to see the data right in front of their noses;
politicians who cannot process the information that citizens are trying to share with them.
Yes all of these problems existed to some extent already, even in the absence of vaccine injury. But as poisonous injections kill the dendrites necessary to process human emotions, routine problems become insurmountable and society starts to break apart.
What would you add to the list above?
I cannot overstate how problematic it is that nearly every bourgeois institution in American failed over the last two years. Government, mainstream media, medicine, science, universities, schools, Wall Street, Silicon Valley — all proved unable to think rationally or critically. They were all revealed to be cartels with no public benefit.
The rare exceptions to this rule are the government of Florida (DeSantis), the Brownstone Institute (Jeffrey Tucker), Substack (Steve Kirsch, Jeff Childers, eugyppius, el gato malo), the big medical freedom non-profits (RFK, Jr., Del, Theresa Wrangham, Leah Wilson), Siri Glimstad, the Weston A. Price Foundation, a handful of rebel doctors (FLCCC, AFLDS, Great Barrington Declaration), state medical freedom groups, and two publishers (Chelsea Green and Skyhorse).
The U.S. economy generates $23 trillion in activity a year. And a huge percentage of that is dedicated to immiserating other Americans via poisons.
Every American needs to ask her/herself whether they work for the Pharma Death Cult Society (even indirectly) or the Parallel Economy Our Hearts Know is Possible.
And if you work for the Pharma Death Cult Society you need to come over to the right side of history at once.
Systems thinking is better than Cartesian reductionism
This video is completely fascinating. When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park, the deer and elk moved to higher ground. Then the wildflowers and Aspen trees returned to the river valley. This brought back the berries and frogs, which attracted more birds and beavers. The beavers built dams that provide habitats for all sorts of other wildlife and reduced erosion and stabilized the riverbanks. (By the way, Chelsea Green published a brilliant book along these lines called Bringing Back the Beaver by Derek Gow that would make a lovely holiday gift for anyone on your list.) The video is two minutes and it’s a nice introduction to systems thinking.
I bring this up because this video is 1,000 times smarter than how the FDA and CDC think about health. The FDA and CDC are engaged in what’s called Cartesian reductionism — they look at parts, not wholes. The FDA and CDC approval process is based on reading self-reports from pharmaceutical companies about the impact of a vaccine on a single proxy — antibodies — that everyone acknowledges are NOT a correlate of protection. The FDA and CDC refuse to look at biological SYSTEMS and actual health outcomes because they surely know these products are harmful and the iatrogenocide is so too big to fail at this point. We live in an age of savagery and barbarism — where public health officials easily could do better but they don’t because looking the other way is so incredibly profitable for them (for everyone else, not so much).
Do the right thing
You know what’s better for young couples than a gender reveal party?
Your moment of Zen
Whoa, that took an unexpected turn!
Blessings to the warriors. 🙌
Prayers for everyone fighting to stop the iatrogenocide. 🙏
Huzzah for everyone working to build the parallel economy our hearts know is possible. ✊
