one of the benefits of a classical education is the richness of metaphor with which it provides you in later life.
the aptness and allegorical alignment can get pretty poignant.
“There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle."That's some catch, that Catch-22," he observed."It's the best there is," Doc Daneeka agreed.”
the reason this resonates as a classic of literature is that it portrays a timeless human context that is and ever shall be all around us.
we see this time and time again throughout history as “leaders of great moment” impose this same shabby trick and seek to invert your not wanting to do as they say into not just a reason but an actual justification to make you.
every one of these despots from plato to bismark, mussolini to mao has believed that they were the anointed, the savior, the leader of great vision come to save you from yourself.
mere facts (much less the acquiescence of the populace) cannot be allowed to get in the way of such utopian visions.
those who fail to see the need to submit to such grand schemes only prove how desperate the need to impose such schemes must surely be.
if you cannot see the wisdom of doing as i say, then i will force you and any who resist only prove that force is needed.
any who follow my diktat are well socialized and may have yard privileges; but refusing them proves that you are unsocialized, need remedial correction, and therefore cannot be tolerated to possess such personal license.
that’s the catch 2022.
and it too is “some catch.”
those imposing it do not feel bad. they feel righteous.
you can see it in their gleaming eyes and the ferret faced fervency of the zealot they so proudly wear upon their overwrought visages as they seek to trap you in totalitarian trickery by rendering that which they want as moral imperative and proclaiming apostate any who dare disagree.
any world view save their world view is not only inconceivable, it is impermissible.
such is the derangement of the demagogue.
you the people will wallow in benighted ignorance of how to properly order your lives and toil under the pain of liberty that you can neither use nor bear unless someone comes along to take this burden from you and arrange the world as it ought be.
this is not about health or facts or rights.
it never was.
it’s about having the ant farm look pretty.
covid is not their only scam and its winding down will only serve to shift this fight to other fields.
it is no coincidence that so many of the most vehement bio-tyrants are also the vanguard of social justice, climate, and class warriors. this is all the same syndrome. this is all the same authoritarian drive seeking vectors by which to manifest.
2022 is merely the thin end of the wedge, the flag of convenience under which to build the structures of subjugation. and this is why those who would sustain some semblance of a free society can allow it to go no further.
ending this fascist moment will require more than a better herding of the sheep. it will require waking up to how this is being done to you and by whom.
it must be ingrained into our lives and our society: the state is not the answer.
you cannot comply your way to freedom of entrust your liberty to ever more convoluted systems of permission.
if you lack the right to say “no” then you posses no rights at all.
keep the lessons close.
“The enemy is anybody who's going to get you killed, no matter which side he's on, and that includes Colonel Cathcart. And don't you forget that, because the longer you remember it, the longer you might live.”
"if you lack the right to say “no” then you posses no rights at all."
This has been my argument for many years. Way before "covid". People don't even realize just how much they say "yes" to things they don't want just because "it's the rule." That's why I am always screaming at the top of my lungs to say NO. It's not easy sometimes and we may be inconvenienced or get yelled at or threatened by a "true believer". But if we don't *practice* saying no, that option will cease to exist.
Yes, the enemy is my GP and all the doctors from the rheumatology dept of the local hospital who signed a letter to me to tell me I must come in for my fourth injection, despite not having taken the first three. They advised, it is highly recommended for me to take these experimental biologicals because I take immunosuppressants. I have taken them for 14 years. I have been on self care for 14 years. the doc simply prescribe the meds I take. secondly, I have never been in better health, no colds, no flu, no covid. Took all the supplements Dr. Zev Zelenko recommended. he is one cool cat.
In my book, the GP and her colleagues in the rheumatology dept are the enemy. One I intend to fight to the end. Friends x 2, with autoimmune disease, nearly died post vaxx the fun part is one was told not to take a second shot, by an immunologist, but she did because, “she wanted to travel”. The other person became so ill after her jabs she developed sepsis and nearly died, but guess what…..she took that booster and is so proud of her decision. Oh well you can take a cat to water, but you cannot make kitty drink💕💕
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
C. S. Lewis
So, having recently recovered from a bout of the winter flu bug going around (and a pos. covid test to boot), my employer decided 14 days later that it was required that they report it to the county (its a small college and the county set up some nonsensical reporting portal to “stop the spread” and “keep schools safe.”) So, I got an email from our “safety officer” demanding that I give a whole bunch of personal information (including the number of people in my residence) so that they can dutifully report to the county. Since I chair the research ethics board at the university I reported back that my rights are still to be respected and protected by university policy and my right to privacy first and foremost among them. So, no I would not be providing my employer information that they did not have a right to know without first knowing why they needed it and second deciding freely to give it or not once I was informed of the data collection purpose. The “safety officer” backed down (no doubt after the University President realized that they were well over their skis on this one and did not want me to threaten to shut down the whole covid data collection effort pending IRB review — we have this power in the policy, though it would be unlikely that the full committee would vote in favor of the action (covidians all). Still, it seems that my letter gave them pause.
And so it will go, I and others (buying into the “herd immunity” nonsense that viewed a respiratory coronavirus as something akin to measles) expected covid to burn out a year ago. Well, now that we know these viruses are excellent at eluding immune systems, we must accept that it will swim among humans for years to come, causing mild illness each and every season. So long as the testing regime remains, “covid” will always be with us. And so, we must act to defend basic human rights and the Western liberal system of governance or we are lost. I am optimistic that people are waking up to this reality (I certainly have) and there are a lot of interests, wealthy, productive interests like small to medium sized businesses that cannot operate with “safety officers” deputized by the county on their backs. Political change is coming, and the “progressive, liberal” fascists will be run out on rails over the course of the next 5-10 years.
"Those imposing it do not feel bad. They feel righteous."
It's even worse than that! As I recall, buried in the footnotes of his gruesomely-detailed, terror-filled book, "KL: A History of the Nazi Concentration Camps," Nikolaus Wachsmann includes this horrifying anecdote: years after the war, a German or Austrian (I don't remember, exactly) psychologist sent out hundreds of surveys to fellow mental health specialists asking if they treated anyone who helped implement the Holocaust (soldiers assisting in the murder of millions of innocent European/Jewish civilians.) That is, how many felt racked with guilt about their inhumane actions? He received one reply.
One of my all-time favorite novels! So much wisdom wrapped up in the pinnacle of hilarity, much like bad cattitude.
Here are a few especially pertinent quotes:
“Insanity is contagious.”
“It was miraculous. It was almost no trick at all, he saw, to turn vice into virtue and slander into truth, impotence into abstinence, arrogance into humility, plunder into philanthropy, thievery into honor, blasphemy into wisdom, brutality into patriotism, and sadism into justice. Anybody could do it; it required no brains at all. It merely required no character.”
“Why are they going to disappear him?'
I don't know.'
“‘It doesn't make sense. It isn't even good grammar.”
“The country was in peril; he was jeopardizing his traditional rights of freedom and independence by daring to exercise them.”
Rage Against the Machine was out on tour recently. All attendees(Slave Lemmings) had to be LabRatInjected or.... 'no Rage for you'! The delicious irony of this situation is that the band many years ago created a song with the lyrics 'fudge you I won't do what you tell me, fudge you I won't do what you tell me', RIP, Rage Against the Machine, welcome Rage For the Machine, 'Heck yeah I'll do what you tell me'!
"We can do anything you can't stop us from doing." ... Catch 22
We have the answer to the age old Mom question: "if everyone jumped off a bridge, would you?" The answer from most people is a resounding YES!
Sotomayor's line of questioning and utterly devoid of truth assertions make me wonder if she's "having one of what he (Brandon) ordered." Wow, she may be well educated, but she is clearly more evil than she is smart. When she asks: "How are humans different from machines?" she is ginning up for a take-down of the foundational idea expressed in the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence written in 1776: "We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness..." To Sotomayor, a machine has no such rights, and in order to achieve policy objectives it is now necessary to open the question as to whether the law will allow us to equate humans to machine, which will permit her side to mandate that everyone will be shot up with drugs of the state's choosing. That's what is behind her asking such a seemingly inane question. In addition to this, she and her philosohical brethren on the bench stated mistruths about the severity of Omicron; this in an effort to make it seem that the safety of our nation was under such dire threat that a suspension of normal rules of justice should be applied to meet the existential threat. This strategy to subvert the Bill of Rights within the Constitution (and the better ideals in the Declaration) is so patently obvious that there ought to be an outcry across the nation to unseat her.
El Malo Gato and company,
“If they ignore you, you still win”
I understand you and your associates attached below are having difficulty getting some sort of official response of any kind to your concerns of the safety signals of the Covid-19 vaccines and other issues surrounding the disease and the response to it.
Now I don’t mean to give this as legal advice, so don’t take it as such, but I’ve stumbled onto a method that you all might be able to make use of to your advantage. I’ve attached several sources below that argue and claim to explain how to make use of notices and affidavits to elicit a response to your objections and concerns.
It is particularly attractive as it would give everyone, every individual concerned with a given issue with a word processor, something to do from their house.
Their argument is that with notices sent as they outline, using both federal and state constitutional articles, and if they don’t desist then sending affidavits counting as sworn testimony, that the recipient has to respond. They would have to reply point by point explaining where they have constitutional authority, or to rebut your affidavit on matters of fact, within a time limit or the notice and affidavit can be used as evidence before a grand jury, and that they ‘acquiesce’ to everything in your affidavit as true if they ignore it. If they lie in their response it counts as lying under oath.
In short, the argument is that if they ignore you completely it is as good as a confession that you are right or they are breaking the law. The catch is you have to have a solid argument with the truth. They claim to have success getting institutions to relent on a number of issues by sending these; even if they don’t openly respond or acknowledge them, the problem stops. If not they are trying to gain access to the grand juries. It is a bit more involved than just the usual petition or letter however, and you all would have to pick the addressees of these notices and affidavits.
I know that these sources might not be on your end of the political spectrum, but perhaps their particular method has merit despite your differences. Please share this with anyone who may be interested or you think would benefit from it. This includes Steve Kirsch, Robert Malone, Alex Berenson, Jessica Rose, Mathew Crawford, Toby Rogers, Aaron Siri.

Week after week you outdo yourself, el gato malo. In awe and with deepest appreciation and gratitude, I thank you. You nailed it here. The self-righteous superiority, the arrogant conviction, gives them away.
Boosting has to be a monthly event. We know the effect fades after about two months, and it takes 14 to 21 days for full effect of a jab to be in place. So, in order to keep continuous ‘immunity’ would require a booster every 30 days. However, immunity to the pathogen and others is weakened for about 14 days after a jab…
CoVid Vaccination = Ouroboris.
How much easier is it to train a pack of dogs to be compliant, obedient, and subservient unto death than to train a single cat, or herd a clowder of them!
Jucinda Ardern and Kathy Hochul appear to have been made in the same factory--the crazy eyes, the mouths that don't work normally and the study stream of cold threats absent of any empathy... there's probably more but I have trouble looking... Wow
The mask of evil is pretty transparent right now. This are just tyrants trying to bully us. They are evil personified. How do you fight evil? Let that sink in. How would you fight evil.
"We're sending you home."
There was a catch of course.
"Catch 22?" inquired Yossarian.
"Of course," Colonel Korn answered pleasantly...
"What, what must I do?" [Yossarian asked]
Colonel Korn laughed curtly, "Like us."
This is the Biden Administration's endgame. They'll "end" all the restrictions and mandates even though Omicron has rendered them meaningless anyway. But they will end the police state only if we promise to "Like them."
Who's the bombardier?
'if you lack the right to say “no” then you posses no rights at all.'
That is as frightening as it is astute. Unfortunately, I fear it will get worse -- possibly far worse -- before enough of the masses awake from their stupor and stand up.

Most excellent points and wordplay, Gato Malo. Epic, actually. 💕
"aptness and allegorical alignment" "ferret faced fervency"

To this post, I'll just respond with: Exactly right. Also, thank you gato malo for being assertive, on-point, and fun to read,.
Dr. Aaron Kheriaty stated above: "covid is not their only scam and its winding down will only serve to shift this fight to other fields. " Here is the sequence of crisis I predict will be coming after covid fades away, which is surely will during the upcoming Spring.
Next on the agenda is the "climate crisis" the groundwork is already laid for this and we'd be in the thick of it now had the corona virus not come along and derailed the climate plans. But, this too, will fail for the simple fact that such a crisis does not exist and will be ultimately be defeated by the lack of evidence and real science.
Following this will be the big one: Somewhere out in space past Jupiter a faint comet will be found - a new one we have not seen before. Within a month or two of its confirmation something like this will make the headlines: "New comet on track to hit Earth in 14 months, 21 days, 6 hours and 22 minutes. Impact will be bigger that all the hydrogen bombs in the world."
Excellent cat, thanks
"it is no coincidence that so many of the most vehement bio-tyrants are also the vanguard of social justice, climate, and class warriors. this is all the same syndrome. this is all the same authoritarian drive seeking vectors by which to manifest." 100%
Best article I’ve ever read online. Ever. Let’s go Brandon.
I very much hope those who took the jab because of financial concerns now see they were given a false choice. I did not and do not berate them for their decision. I just hope they see the truth of it now.
The question is not "how will I feed my kids?" It is "Am I willing to enslave my children forever to feed them temporarily?"

Brilliant title, hombre. Really. And, as always, a useful point of view. The many "transitions" planned for us never have anything to do with what they are alleged to be about.
"Catch-22" and "Kafka Trap" have certainly been a hallmark of the past year, especially. I think however, the "thin end of the wedge" is not 2022, but instead is 2002. Twenty years ago, a cabal of powerful and influential players made use of a galvanizing event to put into motion their carefully crafted plans and programs, enabling a rapidly growing progression towards a more encompassing control of society at all levels. It was the watershed moment that enabled authoritarians and neo-Cons to send a rippling signal outwards from D.C., like vibrations on a spiderweb, to global power players.
Without the programs, policies, institutions, and societal conditioning stemming from post-9/11 actions, I don't think we would have seen the level of eager compliance that has occurred since the attacks, and especially during the recent pandemic.
very moving--you are brilliant gato malo! being from nz, i especially appreciated the clip of covid cindy--she doesn't even look or sound sane any more.
Pay per view Ardren's hanging, New Zealand!
Oh for sure this is about subjection. I know my house isn't the only one filled with wonder at how so many are so willing. I spend a lot of time listening to ppl talk about current events keeping in mind their subjection status. I truly am trying to piece together why people run toward tyranny.
You wright pretty. 😬
My question is... do you believe Jacinda Ardern will break her teeth on the floor, or the floor will break on Jacinda´s teeth? It is a big fall ya know.
Antoher good book, one you can be sure the good mr Heller had read, is 'The good soldier Svejk' by Jaroslav Hasek. It should be available for free online, and legal at that. I think Goodreads has it?
I'd say "Svejk" is by far the better book. Heller could have cut his novel down to one quarter the pages and it would have worked better.
For the heavier stuff, I'd recommend 'The Gay Science', 'Beyond Good and Evil' and 'Thus Spoke Zarathustra'.
Jacinda makes me want to go hide under a bed, then bite her and scratch her as she walks by. This kitty is pissed.

The picture of the Washington Monument and the eye is FAR more sinister now after I saw this article/video. Apparently, all of the elite are satanists (including Fauci, all of the politicians, and an endless parade of celebrities). 666 is embedded everywhere- in the US dollar bill, Google and the WEF's logo. Even if you don't believe in Satan, the elite DO and COVID is the culmination of their plans for a massive CULL. We are so screwed!
