The Plague Of Heroes

Given the facts emerging about the Chinese flu virus, the panic should be subsiding, but too many people are too invested in the panic, for personal and political reasons, to let this thing go away quietly. Instead we have a new round of drama as the heroic politicians listen to the heroic TikTok workers about when they can safely stop tormenting people over what is looking like a real life example of this famous quote. If it ever was, it is no longer about public safety. Instead it is about the drama queens.

Here in Lagos, the local dictator has issued an edict requiring everyone to wear their underwear over their heads if they go outside. That’s a slight exaggeration, but not that much of one. The requirement to wear masks, something unavailable for months, means people are wearing all sorts of outlandish get-ups. More than a few times I have seen women with what looks like feminine napkins on their face. There have undoubtedly been men wearing briefs on their heads just to go outside.

At this stage, demanding that people wear masks is nothing more than a punitive measure to humiliate the public. That move may have made some sense two months ago, but at this point there is no health reason for it. Instead, the politicians and TikTok heroes have got to justify what is turning out to be something closer to the infamous War of the Worlds panic than a legitimate public emergency. To admit reality at this point risks bruising their tender psyches, so we suffer on.

The plague of heroes is just not limited to crooked politicians and portly women in hospital scrubs. Corporate America has decided to remind us that they are not there to make money selling product. That’s crazy talk. No, they are here as a good steward of the community, because they care. They really care. You see, we’re in this together and in this time of crisis, nothing is more inspiring than videos of corporate commissars looking concerned while wearing masks and standing six feet apart.

At the retail end, it appears there is a race to see which company can come up with the most ridiculous ways to torment their customers. At the market I normally solicit, they now require people to line up outside, like the Soviets were fond of doing. That means an hour wait to enter the store, not because it is busy, but because only if we are united can we beat the virus. That’s on a sign outside the store. There’s a good bet the senior management is not heroically standing in any such lines.

I can’t help but think that is part of what’s happening. By turning the nation into a weird form of North Korea. the new class gets new perks. Instead of standing in long lines dressed like idiots, they will soon have private shops where they can shop like normal people in a normal society. The next phase of liberal democracy is concierge shopping to go along with concierge health care. You see, who we are is a nation of equals with one set of rules for the Cloud People and another for the Dirt People.

The hero nonsense does not stop with the boot to the masked face. Just as happened in communist societies, fanatics are now rising up among us to hector the rest of us about our adherence to the new rules. This plague first started on-line with the “Cucks and Karens”, as one commenter called them, tone policing anyone questioning the mass idiocy we see all around us. Now they have spilled into the real world, furiously looking to heroically tell people to keep their distance.

Since I will not stand in the idiot line for the market I usually solicit, I went to another market that is not as heroic. They have a fat broad making sure everyone entering is dressed like a train robber. The greeter has not become the enforcer, but you don’t have to stand outside like a moron. This store serves the working and middle-class, while the really heroic store serves managerial types. There is a strong correlation between class and the willingness to suspend the sense of disbelief.

Inside the store they have arrows on the floor, meaning you have to walk up and down every aisle in a specific order. Apparently, heroism now means having to examine every product on every shelf before you leave the store. This is actually dumber than the Soviet-style lines to enter the store. No one is going to traverse the whole store because they forget to get something in aisle one. As a result, people are violating the edicts and going about their business like sane people used to do.

I was one of those sane people, going against an arrow to get something when a Cuck and Karen in their TikTok costumes said something to me about the arrows. The Cuck did the “Sir! Sir!” bit, but I just ignored him. After I got what I wanted, I turned around and he was saying something, but I could not hear it because my hearing is not good and he was talking through his sissy rag. I was ready to ignore him, but then he did the same “Sir! Sir!” bit to an old guy who was violating arrow policy.

Having reached the age where I no longer bite my tongue in public, I said to the guy, “It is bad enough we have to put up with nonsense, we don’t need idiots like you pretending to be the police of us.” He then heroically said something about it “being about all of us” and I reminded him that the most likely way for him to end up in the hospital was to keep talking. The old guy, heroically chimed in with a vigorous “Fuck you, asshole” and a middle-finger at Cuck and Karen.

The Boomers get a lot of grief from certain people and some of it is surely justified, but the only rebels I see in my travels these days are old-timers. This was not the first time I’ve seen an old person tell one of these prissy heroes to do an unnatural act when confronted about a mask or other dumb stuff. All the butch young guys are sheltering in place, heroically self-isolating while whining about the Boomers. The growing protests we see are almost all old people. Zoomers ain’t our heroes.

I’ve mentioned before that I’ve lost friends over this – people i used to respect as level headed and practical who turned themselves into the Junior Volunteer Thought Police at the very first opportunity. I’m Gen X – all that “slacking” we were famous for is finally coming home to roost. It’s the first time these people have ever felt important and effective in their lives (despite the fact that we’re all middle aged now and fairly high up the career ladder). This is our Woodstock, God help us all. It’s really just lightly disguised cowardice.

The state media isn’t about accuracy or truth. It’s about telling the masses what’s “right” and “wrong” at the moment. Consumers of these outlets don’t fact check them. They couldn’t care less about that. They watch to know how to act, whom to hate and whom to adore.

Although I was never good at humoring idiots, I’ve become less willing to tolerate their shite as I age. Other than for meat and produce, I don’t know that I’m even going to bother with the store any more – most products I’m looking for aren’t there, or they’re now double in price (lack of sales/coupons). Given the commissars and arrows and masks, I think I’m just going to order cases like all the AWFLs do. Then I can shelter in place – from the Karens and the cucks.

“Junior volunteer thought policing” may be a permanent feature of human nature, and could be a positive for society if aimed at appropriate targets. (Indeed, it probably used to be, its ubiquity suggesting some kind of evolutionary fitness.) We live in Weimar II. There are so many obvious horrors for the petty tyrants to police, and yet they go after masks, “social distancing,” and trips to the park. But maybe that’s part of the anarcho-tyranny dynamic: the petty tyrants are in part bullies, and when social evils become too big, petty tyrants don’t have the courage to police them any… Read more »

petty/anarcho-tyrants (same thing) don’t even need courage to police social evils, just enough desire to use social evils as a tool to squash dissent among the innocent – either by accusing the innocent of flouting useless rules that would prevent the big social evil, and/or by allowing the big social evil to occur to a lot of innocents to claim the mantle of protector and squash innocent dissent in the process. on the other hand, snitching on witches and marranos was quite easier and appropriate tbh. so maybe, if we are to have a tyrannical element in society, as evolutionary… Read more »

I was at a public park in a rural town of 9500 yesterday. There was police tape around every exercise area, every shelter, every…bench. How sad that most people take that nonsense (I’m sure most people think it’s nonsense) and don’t at least tear down the tape.

Ron Unz follows a standard template in his usual conspiracy theory nuttiness:

2. The I read this author.
3. That lead me to read a lot of other obscure authors who are completely credible and had huge followings in the day. For some reason they have been banished.
4. Now I believe this conspiracy theory.

His latest is that the US used a bio-weapon on China and it came back to get us. Before that it was Tiannamen square didn’t happen.

Wheeling a cart around the supermarket I have begun to sense a budding comaraderie between strangers without masks. The cashiers where I shop didn’t wear masks until they were required by management two weeks ago. No one had become ill–I asked.

If their behavior/beliefs in the present favor a vision of the future that is antithetical to mine, they never really qualified as a ‘friend’ in my book. I don’t mind being a loner, but I realize most people have a really hard time cutting ties.

The older (and middle aged) white women are even more unpleasant and passive aggressive than usual. They way they speak to their beta husbands is unacceptable and deserves a hard smack, at least.

I don’t know why so many white women become miserable hags as they age. Not all, but a significant portion. Don’t know if that’s built in genetically or if it’s due to modern society.

It is humiliating to wear those masks. The only thing I can do is rip it off my face the minute I exit the store and wad it up in a little ball. I had a conversation with one of the white guy grocery store workers smoking outside yesterday. He had his mask around his neck. I’m sure that’s really sanitary. He told me it’s awful to have to wear it 8 hours a day. I can only imagine. I told him to keep smoking because apparently nicotine’s good against the virus. We had a good laugh.

You’re exactly correct that people are unable to release their first impressions of this situation.

This is the psychological concept known as, “anchoring,” which I first encountered when trying to learn more about the art of negotiation. In those scenarios one party is typically trying to, “anchor,” the other party to a certain price or outcome that benefits them and preclude the possibility the other party will initiate an offer outside the potential zone of agreement.

That was true of Boomers and Xers and the generations before them. But something broke between the Xers and Millennials.

There was a study out at one time that blamed all this on the Pill. That because it fools the body into thinking it is pregnant, the non-pregnant woman looks for a beta male to take care of her, instead of doing things the old-timey way, looking for an alpha to impregnate her. And so the beta genes live to cuck another day. A later study came out and scolded everyone who found this to be the height of common sense. I believe it and still do. It would explain so much . . .

That seems to be the opposite of what is actually happening. The pill allowed women to be extremely hypergamous and chase the alpha cock until they are all worn out and start thinking about settling down with a beta provider, often with a little bastard child. The pill removed all responsibility and common sense.

The old system, with socially enforced monogamy, was where women would pair with betas right away.

This is the feminist imperative boiled down to it’s raw essence.
