excuse me miss julia, but are you saying that we didn’t?
because i think maybe that if it was adults that just spent the last 18 months ruining the global economy and worldwide mental health to push a bunch of pseudoscientific panic and oversimplified moralizing then we are really in trouble…
just thinking about that makes me want to hide in the laundry basket.
That doctor lady might not smack her kids around physically, but what she's done to their minds is just as much child abuse, only perhaps more insidious in that not everyone will recognize it as such.
At this stage, I have to reflect on the old Latin saying: mundus vult decipi, decipiatur ergo - the world wants to be fooled, therefore she will be. I have never seen, or even imagined such collective madness as this rona-episode. Nor the shocking panic response of so many people I always assumed to be cool and rational, but who lost it and often seem to feel threatened by my determination to treat the matter rationally and analytically.
I recognize that there is always a psychological need to see the cause for my situation outside. That's why politicians like wars, including apparently this unwinnable war on Covid. And then they have to do all in their power to make us believe their actions actually made things better, when it is so blatantly obvious they only made it infinitely worse. And they charge us for their mishandling too.
Well let's see:
-Monomaniacal focus on the most immediately visible issue
-Manipulation of emotion to make gratification a matter of urgency
-Unapologetic, blind dependence on the authority figure
-Employment of brute force due to either unwillingness or inability to present a convincing argument
Sounds exactly like a pre-schooler to me. The only difference is that a pre-schooler is unable to effectively fulfill that last bullet, while authoritarianism is able to fulfill it WITH bullets.
Breeding a generation of paranoid psychopaths
we are well and truly past "really in trouble" and deep into the Cultural Revolution, baby. Oh, and remember, today is Klaus's Cyberpolygon rehearsal--woops--"table-top exercise" on large scale hacking attack on vital international supply chains with all the key eugenicists--woops, did I say eugenicists?--stakeholders, key stakeholders. Hey, kittens, time to stock up on kibble, you know, in case supplies just happen to...what's the word?...disrupt.
And then the two kids crossed their arms across their chests and muffled through their three masks, "Maskanda Forever."
BTW, doesn't the good Dr. Julia own a mask company?
The last sixteen months or so have brought all of the intellectually shallow prigs out of the woodwork. There are many more of them than I might have suspected.
It's just Lord Of The Flies on a planetary scale, the third island around the Sun, with MSM for the "conch" and COVID as the "Beast".
Therefore it'll only end when the island burns down and adults stand again at our shores.
5 year olds have run our panic with a covidian gospel.
And I thought pre-schoolers were in charge all along. Silly me!
> just thinking about that makes me want to hide in the laundry basket.
I am experiencing a very different kind of reaction.
I suspect the pre-schoolers have been in charge.
I think she means only the pre-schoolers who have been brainwashed by people like her.
We used to sing with pre-schoolers, "The more we get together, together---the happier we'll be." Has that song (along happiness) been banned in schools?
bad parents equal bad leadership equal what we've experienced regarding this pseudo pandemic.
I find myself wanting to apologize to young people when I see what we old folks have allowed to happen.
Well there are two more messed up kids. But being a Dr. I guess she will have $ for therapy for them as they grow up.
