Managerial Madness

One of the lingering questions about the Covid panic is why did the West suddenly go insane over a regularly occurring phenomena? Pandemics hit the West every generation or so with varying lethality. Most are like Covid in that they are bad for the old and the sick, but mostly a bad flu for everyone else. Once it was clear that Covid was not the Spanish flu, much less the Black Death, the response should have been  like those of the past, but instead we got a panic.

In the United States, the panic started when Trump announced the cancellation of travel to and from Europe. That was March of 2020. Europe quickly returned the favor and then the race was on to see who could be the most egregious with regards to abusing their subjects in the name of health and safety. In the United States that meant laughably ridiculous policies like mask mandates, social distancing and the forced closure of restaurants and barbershops.

Panics are what they are because they are irrational, so much of what happened at the beginning is just mass insanity egged on by the media. The nonsense stories about bodies stacked up in morgues kept getting recycled because there was an eager audience of panic-stricken people. Social media was full of people needing to feel like part of the story by spinning personal tales to support the narrative. Many people derived psychic pleasure from feeling like the end was nigh.

After the chubby nurses had finished their TikTok videos, someone had to notice that the hospitals were not overwhelmed. Forgotten now, but people got curious, defied the lockdowns, and went to their local hospitals to see what was happening. Contrary to the reports, the hospitals were not panicked triage centers. They were ghost towns because everything had been cancelled except emergency care. At some point, the staff had to know what was really happening, but they remained silent.

That is the biggest concern about the panic. We were getting good data on the reality of the virus by the autumn of 2020, and it was clear the virus was something like the Asian flu or Hong Kong flu at the worst. The doctors and nurses had to know this by late summer and early fall, but the public health officials insisted otherwise. In fact, we now know they colluded with the tech companies and the media to silence anyone pointing out the facts about Covid. Why did they do this?

The most common response to this question is to shout, “money or power” and then move onto another topic. No doubt some people made money from the panic, and it did give the managers a sense of power. The trouble is we had plenty of state governments go the other way on the issue of lockdowns. Ron DeSantis is going to make a big deal of the fact he did not succumb to the panic. He was not alone, but he had all the same incentives as other states but did not follow the herd.

Maybe the way to think of the money and power answer here is to put it in the context of the managerial society in which we live. The millions of administrators and their managerial bosses finally had their war. The people who populate the array of public and private bureaucracies dedicated to managing some aspect of your life were finally being called upon to defend the world from destruction. The army of public health experts were going to have their turn on the big stage.

The managerial madness that set in and stayed with us long past when it made any sense was not the crude form of money and power that is the most popular answer to every question regarding the behavior of our rulers. People were not taking bribes or gaining new authority in the system. Instead, the vast managerial class and their administrative underlings finally had the sense of control they had always imagined they should have over your life.

It is important to understand that the people who populate the big chairs in the big offices of this age have been bred for this life. They are like dogs selectively breed for certain sorts of work. Anyone who has owned a dachshund, for example, will tell you they have an innate need to dig. If you let them, they will turn the backyard into the surface of the moon trying to find whatever it is they think is there. The wiener dog lives to root around and find what lies beneath.

Like a working dog, the people in the managerial class are bred for their role, so they have that same desire. Instead of digging around the backyard, they desire to manage the life of people that fall under their area of management. In a crisis, that desire explodes in a mania of micromanagement. In other times, it expresses itself as an endless need to expand their roles and thus expand their control. The manager is bred to manage, and she will manage something.

This managerial madness also explains the manufactured crisis. The same people who went berserk over Covid made the predictable mistakes with Ukraine war. If who you are is defined by how you handle the unexpected, after all, you are the one your people come to handle the exceptions, then you will be tuned to seek out the situations that need your particular set of skills. A form of Munchausen syndrome by proxy has infected the managerial class resulting in endless crises.

The reason the system often feels like it is shaking itself apart is that we are plagued with people looking for a crisis to manage. That has resulted in people finding a crisis where none exists. The end point of a society run by managers is a society run by females standing on chairs shrieking at imaginary mice. This also explains why females now outnumber males in the managerial class. You see this most clearly in health care, where the demand for crisis managers is the highest.

It must be said that a fair bit of what went on during Covid was driven by corruption, stupidity, and avarice. The vaccine boondoggle was just a scaled-up version of the Sackler family opioid scam. It was not the genocide the Sackler’s committed against poor people, but there is still time. The negative effects of the Covid vaccines will not fully be known for a long time. A competent system would have stopped both, but stupidity and corruption make avarice the coin of the realm.

Even accounting for the simple answers, we are left with the question as to why the managerial class went mad with Covid. The simple answer here is that perpetual panic is the natural end to managerialism. Once your society is consumed by a ruling class that imagines itself as the indispensable answer to every problem, they eventually are consumed with the need for problems to solve. We are being destroyed by an out of control need to manage the next crisis.

Probably as early as late July 2020 when second quarter earnings reports started coming out.

Okay, this is a little late, but I hope it will be read by a few people, nonetheless. First of all, I just want to say that it will not be possible to do justice to this horrible episode in human history in a blog post or comments section. The Covid catastrophe needs entire books written about it, many books; and the punishment of the lockdowners, and the care of the lockdown-injured (especially the children) must comprise a major portion of the moral justification for an American regime change. This was the last straw. Secondly, I will stipulate to much… Read more »

And a lot of the appeal that RFK Jr now has with women is just for the reasons you cite. As much as I give him credit his willingness to champion unpopular opinions like anti-vaxx and anti-big finance, a lot of the reason that women support him is that the thought of voting for a Kennedy makes their panties wet.

There was an article a few months back about how his rallies are MILF-fests.

2. Seeing a poll on building the wall. The group most against it was single white women. Nearly 90 percent opposed the wall.

All that statistics since then on Covid, censorship, the anal revolution etc reflect women as the main problem

Thanks.

While that was a great example of the sisterhood punishing a disobedient male, the rationale they used for firing him is very illustrative of the female mindset and why they destroy organizations. Google claimed the evil male was “biased towards high performance employees.” Let that sink in. Women hate to be held to a standard. That is why they tout body positivity and love HR… Read more »

Z, I like you but please get your shit straight for the rest of us. Desantis wore his bitch mask for 3 years and let his Sheriffs arrest beach goers. The asshole lockdowned his state and promoted the vaccine the whole time. He let his local officials do the dirty work, even if he did some symbolic stuff (banning mask mandates only AFTER no one was wearing them anymore).

The pandemic response was aimed directly at white people*. I knew the whole thing was a hoax after the hydroxychloroquine demonizaton campaign, but once the mantra “racism is a virus” was issued, everyone should have gotten up to speed.

*The clot shots, not so much, surprisingly. Yes, due to their numbers whites were badgered the most, but only due to the numbers. They were literally passing out 40’s and Kools to lure Shaneeka and Shitavious to the vaccination station and running clot shot PSA’s in Spanish on loop.

The root of all of this is the fallacy that managerialism solved the Great Depression.

But is being judged necessarily that awful? Taken out of context, it’s easy for one to get the sense that being judged automatically portends some kind of punishment, a thing to be feared. But a righteous man isn’t afraid, or shouldn’t be afraid, of being judged by a righteous God. Of course anyone would fear being judged by a petty and capricious judge who had power over him.

The first part “Judge not” is a direct command from someone who has repeatedly talked about sending people to hell and torturing them forever.

The second part of that line “lest ye be judged yourself” is the consequence of ignoring the command.

The command and consequence cannot be ignored or rationalized away like you are trying to do.

The corporations joined lustily in the promulgation of panic and lockdowns precisely because they knew they could survive capital shorfalls far better than small businesses. And the longer the panic continued, the more small businesses would fail, thus handing their market share to the corporations on a silver platter. The rest of the… Read more »

In the absence of dangerous comorbidities, most people survived. What was inportant to remember is that the “gain of function” genetically engineered into the virus enhanced its transmissability, and thereby made the panic easy to sell.

Now, other elements of the engineered viral genetic impact are far more dangerous than mere transmissability. The shoes have been dropping left and right on that score. A bioweapon it is.

Typically a novel disease sweeps through a population and culls the susceptible weak and old. The remaining population (perhaps) sickens, but survives stronger/resistant for it.

I’m curious as to just how “bad” follow on Covid mutations would have been had their infected population been “novel”—as in never exposed—as well.

“We would get on calls and figure out what we would do if we lost everything”

You guys actually communicated with each other? I know that you realize how risky that is at a big, successful company where so many of your coworkers are selfish, somewhat sociopathic, and mercenary. You are living in your own personal prisoner’s dilemma.

It was a tiny group. We met in person and in stealth worked together in remote areas on occasion to have fun and blow off steam. It wasn’t without risks, but keeping it small enabled us to blow off steam and escape the pressure cooker of severe isolation in the face of the extremely heavy hand of the Regime. Not going through it alone was important.

I agree that one big reason that the c-vid problem became a crisis is because of the psychology of the managerial class. This psychological aspect becomes even more interesting when you remember that those at the top did not really believe in the crisis. Remember Nancy Pelosi getting her hair done and Gavin Newsome dining out during the lockdown and Boris Johnson’s whole cabinet partying. Remember the lack of concern over all the BLM protesters without masks. It looks like the foot soldiers really believed, but the higher you go up the chain of command, the more you find cynical… Read more »

This did lead to me teaching, and my young teenage son understanding one of life’s very important lessons: if the powerful people who scream about a crises do not personally act like there is no crises, then there is no crises. If there is no actual crises, then what’s it all about? It can only be a scam. Either for money, power, or control. The true believers are a different thing to watch out for, but the scammers are usually pretty easy to spot, if you are observant.

Covid-19 convinced me of one thing, and that is Joe Stalin was right in at least one way. He basically said that if you want to stop having problems you must first get rid of all of the troublemakers. At this point in time the numbers are 2,000,000 firearms on their side, and 450,000,000 firearms on our side. That’s called Gun Barrel Democracy.

Influenza cases declined during the Covid years precisely because it had been pushed out by Covid, which became the dominant respiratory infection. Only a small subset of the population is vulnerable to catching a respiratory infection at any given slice of time, so the most virulent virus of the season tends to monopolize all the available hosts.

Eugyppius has done extensive work documenting this phenomenon, so don’t go busting out of your drawers with that “not a single person can explain to me” bit of supercilious rhetoric. The explanation is out there, but you obviously haven’t availed yourself of it.

That’s splitting hairs saying “declined”. Yeah, declined from 40 million cases to 3600 cases, based on my crappy math skills, that works out to a 99.99999% decline. Ha!

A better word would be eliminated. The common flu was elminated by the covaids hoax because the juggaloes can’t be bothered or are too stupid to actually build a cohesive narrative. It’s a B level lifetime movie shit script all the time.

Virulence has nothing to do with preponderance. Virulence is severity, as measured by symptomatic intensity. And, at any rate, there is little evidence Covid is more virulent than influenza. I’ve had Covid twice, and both were the rough equivalent of a bad cold.

Same here. Perhaps even three times—every winter around Jan 1–for Covid. That would make me having Delta through BA variant. The first two cases *were* diagnosed through testing available at the time. The potential last two cases were confirmed with follow up blood work and antibody counts—IGg3 and IGg4 levels. Only interesting finding is that 6 months after last bout, the antibodies for Covid IGg3 remain strong, whereas boosted people drop off the charts. This is what they tout as “natural” immunity (as vs clot shot). As a side note, my physician is cooperative in this follow up, repeated, bloodwork… Read more »

Really, ID? Was the Flu pushed out by Covid, as in one virus at a time, or was there incentive/inclination to diagnose every respiratory disease as Covid. Certainly, here in the USA, hospitals were paid $13k for a Covid admission and then three times more for a ventilation. Hospitals got nothing extra for a flu case. Not sure Eugyppious teased that one out to my satisfaction. My take is that the flu spread pretty much as always, but was misdiagnosed for various reasons.

A researcher at Johns Hopkins also discovered that in 2020 there was a huge reduction in death by heart disease and a few other killers, and that the total of that expected shortfall very nearly matched deaths attributed to Covid. Very soon after her work was publicized, Johns Hopkins disavowed this woman’s work without providing a scrap of evidence to its contrary.

The panic among the elite and the media over the previously non-controversial drugs ivermectin (Nobel Prize-winning drug) and hydroxychloroquine as treatment for covid was perhaps the biggest eye-opener to me, along with the use of the dangerous drug Remdesivir (“Run Death is Near”)

The whole thing seemed more evil and malicious to me rather than simply managerial glee at controlling things.

Hydroxychloroquine, which was presented as highly dangerous, had long been used to treat autoimmune disorders precisely because it is very safe and has few side effects. There is no way that many if not most physicians knew that.

Yes, hydroxychloroquine has been widely used for malaria as well. At that time, my doctor told me he would never write a prescription for hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin, but insisted I take the vaxx. (Of course I dropped him and now have a new doctor who strongly opposes the vaxx.)

It was the widespread use as a malaria preventative that caused the then almost completely white, male doctors to corelate it to a reduction in autoimmune symptoms. Again, this is basic medical knowledge that was widely available to lay people let alone physicians. It would be nice to know how many died who were denied hydroxychloroquine treatment, but of course such a study never will be funded.

We also had a Rep Gov who banned pharmacies from filling such therapeutic prescriptions.

early on HFH hospital in Detroit did a study on hydroxychloroquine on 2500 hospitalized covid patients. it showed a 50% reduction in mortality. when asked about this Fauci said ” the study was flawed”. he didn’t say how and there were no follow up questions. I know a nurse and she said the doctors who got it were taking both Hydrox and Ivermectin. CDC covid protocol expressly forbid giving it to patients. multiply the number of covid deaths by .52 and that will give you the number who would have been saved. https://www.cbsnews.com/detroit/news/henry-ford-health-system-study-hydroxychloroquine-lowers-covid-19-death-rate/#:~:text=DETROIT%2C%20Mich.%20%28CBS%20DETROIT%29%20-%20A%20Henry%20Ford,published%20Thursday%20in%20International%20Journal%20of%20Infectious%20Diseases.

Thirdly, it was a test run for the emerging panopticon surveillance and control super-state that encompasses North America and Western Europe.

I would argue it’s not so much the managerial class (or the classic assumptions re money and power) as it is the vector between managerialism, feminism, and utterly ordinary people finally receiving the attention and deference they have always craved. Too many people hear “power” and they think simplistically of dictators or military leaders. It’s a basic error of binary thinking.
