“the science™” was getting a little tangled up in itself.

vaxx beats mask.mask beats test.but test beats vaxx.
vaxx beats mask.

but hey, at least it’s not working…
and this is the important part to keep in mind: authoritarian fascism becomes its own constituency.
it does not matter if it works.
it does not matter if it makes sense.
it matters that it keeps the power it took.
it will not release its grip when it is wrong, it will tighten it.
that is the game we're playing.
I live in Germany and I can confirm that we have reached peak retard and are going even futher into the stratosphere.... I have a business trip tomorrow and I need to do a 1100km round trip in one day plus my meetings as I AM NOT ALLOWED TO STAY OVERNIGHT IN A HOTEL.

You're hiding unvaccinated people under the floorboards, aren't you?
Supply chains deliberately shattered. National economies deliberately wrecked. Societies deliberately divided. Borders deliberately opened to invasion. Media deliberately misinforming. Medicine deliberately corrupted.
Malice afore thought. Globally executed.
Yeah. We’re getting thrashed. And it’s only beginning.
Strap in, mi amigos. Turbulence.
You're always right on, but your last few lines --authoritarian fascism becomes its own constituency -- yes. Powerful and true. Nothing is clearer than "shots don't protect against omicron, but get your jab!" and "masks don't work, sorry ... but masks must be worn at all times." And so many people do not see it.
"It will not release its grip when it is wrong, it will tighten it" has been going on since the beginning--clearly the tail wagging the dog and a very clear indication that something much bigger is in the works. Even if the science and facts don't compute, they'll still plow their way through. This is still the most clear indicator that a much more ominous problem is afoot.
Pondering absurdity topologies, often mistaken by "coincidences", this brings to mind the following passage of "Dead Funny - Telling Jokes in Hitler's Germany" by Rudolph Herzog, Chapetr IV "Humor and Persecution", on the Nazis first national boycott of Jewish shops, doctors and lawyers, staged April 1st 1933:
"Jewish Germans came up with a number of jokes revolving around the boycott, the first nationwide anti-Semitic initiative carried out by the Nazi government.
One running theme—hardly a surprise—was the arbitrary nature of this state coercion.
Despite the considerable horror they had felt when the SA men were bellowing crude anti-Semitic slogans, in retrospect the joke-tellers were very much aware of the boycott’s inherent absurdity:
«A city on the Rhine during the boycott: SA men stand in front of Jewish businesses and “warn” passers-by against entering them.
Nonetheless, a woman tries to go into a knitting shop.
An SA man stops her and says, “Hey, you. Stay outside. That’s a Jewish shop!”
“So?” replies the woman. “I’m Jewish myself.”
The SA man pushes her back. “Anyone can say that!”»
The punch line played on the fact that it was usually impossible to tell the difference between gentile and Jewish Germans.
The boycott made it clear that the Nazis were serious about their promise to drive even fully assimilated Jews out of German society.
Germany’s relatively small Jewish minority was made into a magnet for racist resentments that were deeply anchored in the German social core.
In the copious propaganda that accompanied the boycott, Jews were made the scapegoats, however improbably, for a whole range of social ills, though in many rural regions of Germany there were no Jews at all—a fact that give rise to the following joke:
«Julius Streicher, the spokesman for the anti-Jewish boycott, received a telegram from a small town in northern Germany.
It read: “Send Jews immediately—stop—otherwise boycott impossible.”»
The boycott was the first of what soon seemed an endless series of anti-Jewish measures, minutely described in the diaries of Viktor Klemperer and other chroniclers of the time.
The Third Reich did not begin with Auschwitz."
As my Dad once said Germans are great people but if someone blows a bugle it all goes to hell.
"It will not release its grip when it is wrong, it will tighten it.".....Just so frightening! WTF do we have to do to get these people to go away!
Then there is the story in the US where two patients one waiting for a heart transplant and the other needing a kidney transplant were taken off the list for not getting jabbed. This is the ‘new insanity’ of our society.
The Absurdity of Fascism. At some point it reaches comedy and we literally have to laugh as that is our potent weapon. Fascists, even in their greatest absurdity, have no humour. They must be taken seriously to be effective. Which is why I love you, gato. Your humour is helping us stay sane!!
The tangled science graphic is just priceless. Thank you for all of your wonderful posts, bad cat!
“He was a very different and distasteful type … obviously, second-rate, who poured forth all the cheap and shoddy propaganda.… We could get nowhere with him because to every question we asked, there came a kind of gramophone record reply.”

WEF logic through and through.
right now at the top of the hour the little fascists in our “parliament” are discussing vaccine mandate. the german surpreme court unmasked themselves already a little while ago in regards to their role of defense: they’re gonna do nothing.
germans don’t like to hear it because they’re in two cults now and that’s hard to admit: the cult of guilt — the holocaust is holy — and the cult of covid. the problem is, now: you can only have one god.
my german fellows are such unbelievable dick heads i would not make a move would they all be on the brink of great suffering. i was running around giving flyers early on and what did they do in the country of goethe and einstein?
nothing. piss around.
Seems like some don’t like playing the game anymore.

When single-minded nonsense meets German tenacity and documented efficiency you can expect comedy (unless you are living here)
My bullshit detector klaxon has been ringing pretty much nonstop since the beginning of this dangerous farce.
The nonsensical absurdity is deliberate. How can it not be?
For me, perhaps the most glaring example is that one must face-diaper up when walking to one's restaurant table but can diaper down once seated. To this day here in the People's Republic of Silicon Valley eateries enforce this preposterous practice and people comply.
But of course, there are more.
Just this chilly, foggy morning driving my son to school entire families are walking by the side of the road, all masked up. Mommy and daddy giving the kids a ludicrous life lesson.
People in their cars, alone, double diapered.
A couple months ago I took an Uber to the airport. The driver had affixed a plastic barrier with duct tape between the front and rear seats. But had cut a hole in the middle so he could speak with his passenger(s) and be understood through the mask and the barrier!
I feel like I am living in some sort of insane clown world full of hysterical hypochondriacs, most of whom insist that everyone else engage in the same pathological behavior.
Can this benighted barbarian horde be brought back from madness?
If not, I truly fear for the future.
"In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is...in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to."
~ Theodore Dalrymple
What kind of hammer does a cat use for hitting nails squarely on the head?
A claw hammer, of course.
Thanks for the straight shooting, Gato.
And just to conclude:
“You can check out any time you like,

This is maybe the only post of you, which I will not like. That's because I live in Germany and I hate it. You are f****** right. Need to leave the country ASAP.
I go to protests on a weekly basis but the politicians are dead set to push this apartheid and ze vakziiins on us all. The saddest thing is that apparently 60% of the Germans agree - who knows if that's really the case but it certainly feels like it is.
So sad that US is unreachable for me now in terms of legal emigration.
Impfung macht frei.
I generally don't like associations of Germans with their fascist past, but here it is done with some humour (and it is 2022 not 2016), but most importantly the stakes are very high, and opponents of freedom are not playing fair at all, so this matches back. Mr Global has enlisted Merkel among his cult and Merkel and her followers, current administration, are acting in ways that call for this kind of response especially given that the cult is very powerful and has caused great harm.
Denial. Anger. Bargaining. Depression. ACCEPTANCE (that what’s happening here is no accident or mere clumsy response). Awesome. We need concrete action, akin to what’s happening in Canada with the truckers. Something that is more powerful and concerning to the promulgators than words on signs.
I'm sure the CogDis Brigade has already warmed up a long-and-frothing or terse-and-smug ironclad dismissal of all observed contradictions, rhetorically unassailable while equally devoid of factual content, complete with a personal insult about the intelligence, morals, or belief system of anyone disagreeing.
There's no point in debating or discussing anything with anyone anymore. Just wait for when the broken robots start attacking instead of talking.
All the gains of the past few weeks appear to be crumbling before my eyes. We've come out the other side to where a pretense of accuracy isn't even there anymore.
I don't see how civilization survives this, long term.
This insanity reminds me very much of cult-classic comedy show Brass Eye:
"Now that is scientific fact. There's no real evidence for it, but it is scientific fact."
And to paraphrase:
"If you plot 'number of government anti-Covid measures' against 'what makes people stupid' versus 'intelligence of either party', the pattern is so unreadable that you might as well just draw a chain of PCR tests on sticks. And if you do that, an interesting thing happens: the word 'bullshit' starts flashing."
“The closer the collapse of an Empire, the crazier its laws”

"I believe humanity's foray into fiction began with the breakdown of the bicameral mind, and the insertion of meaningless symbols in between the subject and the seer. In short, back when people used pictographic alphabets, we were limited to discussing things we could actually see in the real world. The invention of phonemic alphabets like this one, which are comprised not of representative pictures but of meaningless letters, provides the opportunity to invent an endless stream of non-sense, the greatest of these being spelled with just a single capital letter."

"The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist."
Nahhh the greatest trick the devil pulled was that the devil is someone else, whether real or imaginary.
Boot meets neck
Here in WA state the regime just performed the ritual humiliation of local legend, GOAT NBA point guard John Stockton for refusing to mask up for the Gonzaga games. For rejecting "the science". His 30 year standing season tickets have been revoked.
Meanwhile every county in the state is in the "red zone" for covid transmission. That's where the science got us. But it's clearly not about that, it's about shaming the non believers.

Thanks for the close up look at this crazyiosity.
Check out the Klaus Schwab's WEF sequel to "The Great Reset" = "The Great Narrative":
A few gems of their propaganda:
"...A peaceful world, a healthy world, a breathable world, a clean world, a fair world: each should be regarded as a global public good whose provision depends on our ability to cooperate globally. Such a pressing necessity was made obvious with COVID-19: no global state exists to deliver a vaccine to the entire world, so the effort to vaccinate as many people as possible falls upon international organizations whose power is constrained by competing national interests and a patchwork of fragmented agreements and initiatives negotiated between 200 sovereign states. It doesn’t work. On 21 November 2021, the lack of global cooperation and the incessant bickering about burden sharing meant that only 54.7% of the world population was vaccinated. At the time of writing, the emergence and identification of the Omicron variant might prove to be a stark consequence of this failing...."
“...NZE2050 concern the conversion from fossil fuels to renewable energy, (...) [because they are not possible] in poor countries ... within the 30-year timeframe needed to address the climate challenge. (...) these countries need requisite energy to build their nations and to provide basic needs for their large unserved populations This cannot be circumvented or ‘leapfrogged’ by the technology-based methods inherent in NZE2050 – if global minority countries cannot implement CO2-reducing tech on a large scale, how could global majority countries achieve this?”
Answer: A vast forced transfer of wealth from developed countries to the undeveloped to build ineffective, virtue signalling wind & solar farms. Goal achieved: More poverty for the Western Proletariat and continued poverty for citizens in developing nations, i.e. a World Neo-Feudal corporate fascist state.
I vascilate between thinking it’s all over due to political ramifications (eg UK ending mandates) and thinking “they” will ramp it up due to sunk political costs and the unending desire for societal control. Gato seems to think it’s the latter. Scary.
This would be a darkly funny novel, meanwhile scratching head wondering when people are going to ‘get it.’ Why can’t I put this book down?
Germany has killed ~70,000 people already by shutting down most of its zero CO2 Nuclear power plants, replacing them with dirty coal, according to epidemiological data. That's almost as much as their 90,000 corona deaths and the coal deaths will continue long after corona and get worse due to more nuclear shutdowns. That doesn't count their constantly hyped climate change deaths that they CLAIM to care so much about.
Not shutting down the nuclear power costs nothing, easy-peasy, saving lives by just doing nothing. So they justify spending $trillions in debt money, shutting down an economy, draconian lockdowns, police state tactics, massive unemployment, supply shortages & economic deprivation in order to save ~23,000 extra covid deaths (vs Sweden low intervention method). Those are deaths largely of the very old, very sick or very old & sick vs coal pollution kills by lung disease, cardiovascular disease and cancers, a younger, healthier population. Now how is that rational?

We don't need to play that game in Canada, here it's vaccine only. Two doses now, three doses later but we won't say when so you had better get it now.
I suppose that's what Germany will move on to in time, it will seem like a more rational thing to do. Besides, you know, stopping this madness once and for all.
Unfortunately it's so true
And now imagine living in this madhouse! The absurdities don’t end there… I just published a special issue of my letter!
Fascist tendencies never disappear from places where they are ingrained. They simply recede for a while, awaiting an opportune time to resurface. I like to think that, with sufficient perseverance, the end result is the “reward” ultimately realized by Col Landa.
We are maaaaad...
