The Church Of Covid

Depending upon when you mark the beginning, the world is anywhere between six and eight months into the Covid panic. While some parts of the world have slowly climbed back down from the ledge, other parts of the world seem committed to another round of lock downs and public hysteria. In fact, the great and the good are telling us that the public rituals may be a permanent condition. The question, though, is why has the world gone crazy over this particular pandemic?

Strangely forgotten in all of this is the fact that every generation or so has a nasty virus get loose that results in a very bad flu season. The last one was Swine flu, which was about a decade ago. There was a worldwide outbreak of H1N1 called the Soviet flu in the 1970’s and before that the Hong Kong flu. There are localized outbreaks of even scarier things like MERS and SARS. In other words, Covid is neither unusual or particular harmful compared to the regularly occurring pandemics.

In fairness, the initial concern over the virus was justified. It could have been another Spanish flu or it could have been an engineered super-bug. Given the origin and the behavior of China, it was a safe bet that this virus came from a lab. That means it could have been much worse for many obvious reasons. While it most certainly originated in a Chinese lab, we know it is not a super-bug that will plunge the world into darkness or become an extinction event.

One reason for the panic is the ongoing crisis in the West. Most of the world has not only come off the ledge, but is back to normal. China, where this thing started, is completely back to their version of normal. It is Europe and the Anglosphere that continue to struggle with the panic. Europe seems to be determined to go back into some form of lock down, despite the evidence. The great and good in America are praying to their gods for a second wave of infections.

The Covid pandemic has been the best thing to happen to minor politicians and celebrities at all levels since the invention of Twitter. In America, few people have any reason to know the names of their local politicians, but now everyone knows the name of the people behind the lock downs. The same is true of the silly drama queens who fill in the blanks of public entertainment. Every day one of them pops off about the virus in a way that gets them unwarranted public attention.

In the West, public trust and trust in authority have declined to the point where all politics, all social behavior, is built around the gesture. The new social capital is public displays of caring. Everyone feels the need to tell the world how much they care, so anything that can enable that spreads like a virus. The real pandemic this year has been the plague of people and companies telling us how much they care and that we’re all in this together. After all, it is about being safe.

This plague of caring is not all that different from the last plague of caring that is still with us to some degree. The global warming panic operated along the same lines as this Covid panic. Instead of the great and good decorating themselves with masks and face shields, they toted piles of grimy canvas sacks to the supermarket. They imposed silly regulations on everyday items like gas cans and drinking straws. Caring about Gaia is the Eleusinian Mysteries of the managerial class.

There is also a punitive aspect to this. That sense of communal salvation is still very strong among the great and good. One manifestation of this is that all of us must suffer for the sins of the few. Only through suffering can we find salvation. In order to please Gaia, we have to put up with drinking straws made of paper and obnoxious lectures from demented plutocrats. The people behind the climate change stuff admit that there is nothing to be done, but they apply the lash anyway.

In this regard, Covid has been manna from heaven. Just as everyone with an IQ above room temperature has realized climate change is a scam, here comes a scourge of the gods sent to punish the wicked for voting for Donald Trump and Brexit. The vengeful, malicious technocrats that run the West suddenly have a reason to torment the people over whom the rule. Note that they casually exempt themselves from the ridiculous rules they impose on the rest of society.

Then there is the fact that Covid actually exists. Unlike climate change, the great and the good can point to real people who are genuinely sick. They have pumped up the death counts and are now scouring the land for people who can test positive for the virus, but Covid is a real thing. Climate change does not exist in any way that impacts the lives of people. Covid is a bogeyman that does not require mountains of graphs and charts based on cooked data. Everyone can understand it.

This is why the Covid restrictions may be with us for a long time. With these new tools of torment, the Torquemadas of the managerial class get to take out their anger on the rest of us whenever they like. The busybodies and overly officious flunkies of the system get to nose around in your business and push you around. The Church of Covid has made the worst elements of human society into high priests. These loathsome freeloaders will never voluntarily let go of their new power.

Bad government is one thing – a people that goes along with it is another. Let’s be honest the majority of white people support insane restrictions. Non-whites just ignore the government and do whatever they want, as usual. Why are millions of whites, particularly women, begging to be shut down? The pro lockdown people are really nasty too, now calling for jail time for people who aren’t social distancing. Projecting their misery onto others maybe?

“…a significant portion of whites are insane…”

That has been my own observation in my small community. I had no idea there were so many people who were either terrified, silly, or filled with ideological vitriol. I have publicly mocked people I knew to be very conservative Trump supporters because they went about shopping wearing a mask when it is not required. These are people who used to complain about the fake news, but now they suddenly believe the crap they are seeing and hearing on TV.

Perhaps it’s just becoming apparent how stupid the population is. It takes a bit of smarts to separate the disinformation from the facts—and of course, courage to act upon such.

We often call this “critical thinking”, but I’m thinking it’s inseparable from IQ—and don’t confuse IQ with “credentialism”. Lot of dumb people with degrees these days. Such is the state of higher education.

Critical thinking and how to write (or beware of!) cleverly (not to say clearly). Consider this Atlantic article (You don’t have to read the whole thing, but it’s short.) Here’s the money quote: It’s worth noting that there isn’t much difference between Barkley’s claim that “there are a lot black people who are unintelligent” and the claims of a garden-variety racist. See what the author (Tarnishes-easily Coates) did? He casts doubt on Barkley’s claim, implying his words are untrue, because surely any morally upright Atlantic reader knows a racist must be a liar. Nowhere in the article is any refutation… Read more »

White people have three interlocking pathologies that have been and will continue to be their downfall. Those are:

Pathological altruism.
Pathological honest.
Pathological deference to authority.

Whites that know the media lies about any number of topics will reflexively trust them on some other topic. They literally can’t help themselves from doing so.

I think it is pathological empathy, not deference to authority. There was a huge and fast juggling of phrasing for the directives, as “do what I say” was failing hard. They switched to “keep others safe,” which seems to have stuck and worked.

Covid-19 is a real pathology with real negative consequences, so it’s not intrinsically unreasonable to take precautions. The problem most people have is not they are gullible, per se, but that they like training and cognitive skills to properly evaluate the risk this disease entails. As such, it’s quite understandable that someone would just wear a mask instead of spending hours doing complex research and risk analysis. People are cognitive misers, and frankly, wearing a mask so you can spend more time thinking about more enjoyable things is a pretty good use of time.

Drew, you miss the essence of the problem. The mask wearing was initially voluntary, then made mandatory. Once that happens, we are beyond taking “reasonable” precautions for one’s own health—we are requiring, under penalty, that others sacrifice themselves for our (supposed) good. This concept, now accepted by the sheeple opens the door for all sorts of pernicious undertakings by our rulers. We are seeing such outside of simple mask-up requirements. Bars are closed, but restaurants with bars and table service are free to serve alcohol. Restaurants have mandatory closing hours and limited seating to 25-50% capacity—regardless of “social distancing” ability.… Read more »

You don’t have to have a Ph.D. in Dravidian philology to understand Covid is an overblown crock of bullcaca, and that, unless you’re an octogenarian with a couple of comorbidities, this virus is not much of a threat. Likewise, one needn’t do extensive research to conclude that masks are a totally ineffective defense against what little threat Covid does present.

Yes, it’s seems that they have gone insane, but I think it’s deeper and more sinister than that. Consider: civilization, true culture, is a burden that can only be built and maintained by a masculine and intelligent people who have a unifying belief. Because of luxury and peace, we have become an effeminate and soft people, and in doing so have replaced patriarchy with its opposite. Was it Heidegger that said matriarchy is the death drive manifested? Indo-European man is not only going crazy, he seems largely suicidal. Now,the reasons of how we got here are multifarious.

Perhaps there’s a predisposition towards fanaticism or religious madness. Perhaps this explains much unexplicable history. Such ideas as personality traits like ‘inheritable altruism’ doesn’t doesn’t hold much water with the Zman, true. I think it may not be a vague trait that is inheritable, but the wiring: our spectrum of perception and response to social cues, rather, making it hard to pin down as a specific set of chromosomes. For instance, we still haven’t found a “gay gene”; we’re forbidden now from looking at queerness as a birth defect in the delicate wiring, a difference in what one sees and… Read more »

A large portion of the current problem is that most of the West had turned its back on God.

Most humans have deep, inherent spiritual needs, despite what the Progtards claim.

The Karens at any evangelical church are the exact same as the urban ones putting up “hate has no home here” signs on their lawns.

Location, culture, and most importantly, the availability of alpha/non cucked beta men. The main difference is that Christian men are not as cucked as the leftist WASP Karens’.

Humans will never progress past the need for religion and spirituality.

That’s fine. For the people with the right mindset and upbringing, religion might not be important.

However, 1. The vast majority are dumb and the Bible is a great way to fill that void and 2. The practical benefits of religion, like community, a shared bond with strangers and neighbors, hierarchy, and limits on degeneracy, is very necessary regardless on whether there is an all knowing Sky Man or not.

Just so. I’m one of that large minority who’s mental framework can’t imagine some God or Source, or even imagine the need for such a thing.

Yet, the majority of our kind do, so it must be natural. My kind of thinking, to them, seems utterly illogical, and will never make sense.

Perhaps there’s a third type, awaiting only the loss of the formal majority structure?

While we atheists were quite visible, perhaps the neither-nor were not?

My type of atheist has no interest in tearing up the rules or attacking others, but maybe that’s why we are usually conflated?

Care about politics? I think it causes most people serious psychic pain to think and analyze the world around them – even a little bit -political or not. Most of the world are walking-talking rutabagas. Outside not crapping their pant, chewing their food, only using a 5K word vocabulary, doing what needs to be done to have sexual relations with another rutabaga and using whatever brain cells are left to do that thing called a job — people don’t want to think more than is necessary.

Bingo! What I sense is that most all these States with “free” health care wind up eventually unable to afford it, so they inevitably ration care in some form.

Common rationing techniques I see are long waits for certain services and denial for services depending on “payback”. The old never really win out in these cases.

Not that these techniques for cost reduction are any worse than simple denial based on ability to pay—but it’s not any more moral either.

I’ve basically stopped looking at test results and just look at deaths. Those have tailed off nearly everywhere which is why the fake news focuses on tests. There’s also the fact that if the false positive rate is high (as it is for Covid) and they are reporting raw test results, it’s likely that virtually ALL the positives are fake. How often they do this, I don’t know. The problem is that there are many ways to lie about all this and you can “stack” your lie techniques – i.e. That guy with 14 bullet wounds just died and he… Read more »

In the first place, that 1 million number, like all COVID numbers, is highly suspect. But let’s pretend it’s accurate. 1 million deaths over about 9 months (say pandemic began in Jan.) annualizes to about 1.25 Million. You can choose a slightly higher figure and it won’t change the calculations much.
There are about 56 million deaths yearly, worldwide. That means that 1.25/56 = about 2.2% of deaths MAY have been due to COVID. I just can’t get very excited about that, especially knowing the vast majority of those were frail people who would have been “checking out” soon anyway.

If some sky hag calls you out on it, mask up, or don’t. Worse case scenario is you get “banned” from the airline. But tickets are cheap, and there’s a very good chance some, or most, legacy carriers are going to disappear anyway.

Two-stroke == two cycle.

The typical gasoline engine people think of (car engines, your typical lawn mower engine) is a 4-stroke or 4-cycle engine.

Almost all chainsaws and weedeaters are 2 stroke/cycle. Back in the day a lot of dirt bikes, mopeds and even some street bikes were 2 cycle. I used to own a ’72 Suzuki 500cc street bike that had a separate resevoir for 2 cycle oil (eliminating the need for you to mix 2 cycle oil with the gas whenever you filled it up).

PS- sarcasm aside, I heard a good conjecture on why beneficient, beautiful, flora-friendly carbon is experiencing a slight rise, while the sunspot Maunder minimum is taking us into a mini-Ice Age circa 1600-1850:

The dams.

Dams, the original green energy, are cutting off the mineral nutrient flow of river silt to the oceans.

90% of the carbon-to-oxygen cycle is ocean plankton, not the land plants.

We’re getting algae blooms and ocean dieoff because the seas are starving, unable to feed the surface plankton. Thus, less carbon recycling.

Damned electricity!

The disjuncture between what is presented in the “official” newspapers–PANDEMIC!!!–and the experience of daily life, where I don’t know a single person infected with the virus (let alone sick or dead) is astounding.

Unfortunately, “reality” for the NPCs is not what they see with their own eyes, but what they read or see on “official” news outlets which, as everyone in our thing knows, are building up a portrait of things so fictional, so totally made up of lies, that’s it’s more like the “world building” of the Marvel or DC fictional universes than anything approaching actual descriptive journalism.

The reason TPTB have been able to inflict this moronic Kovid Krackdown on us is because Westerners are, in the main, pathetic cowards.
