So, the government of New Normal Germany is contemplating forcing everyone to wear medical-looking masks in public from October to Easter on a permanent basis. Seriously, the fanatical New Normal fascists currently in charge of Germany’s government — mostly the SPD and the Greens — are discussing revising the “Infection Protection Act” in order to grant themselves the authority to continue to rule the country by decree,
I "like" this in the most horrible and ironic sense. What an awful world we are marching into, again, appearing to have learned nothing from history.
Canada is right behind you, Germany. In fact, right now the federal government has three bills they want to pass through Parliament that would allow the government to take direct regulatory control of what we see, say and read online.
These bills would mean we will be censored, news will be hidden from us and the government will pay off the media for favourable coverage (which they have been doing throughout the covid-debacle).
We also have the Prime Minister spreading hatred and lies about the unvaxxed and forbidding us to fly domestically. That crap was just lifted temporarily while they muse about requiring the citizenry to be up-to-date on their poison shots, as two doses is now so 'old normal'.
Both Israel and Germany have been the biggest surprises in terms of compliance. Non-compliance by the masses is really the only answer. So disappointing to read:
"Sadly, the majority of the German masses will mindlessly click heels and follow orders, as they have since the Spring of 2020."
Perhaps - I wonder, is the spell breaking? I think so, hard to assess actual numbers, but reality has a way of eventually catching up. Maybe by October more of the herd will have moved towards awakening and things change. That's what I'm hoping for.
Separate note - got your book last week, and one of my sons saw it on the coffee table and said, "Cool, I wanted to read that." Proud Mama.
My wife just finished reading your latest book of essays, even though, like me, she had read them in real time as you first published them. She expressed to me how empowering it is to simply know there are others who are thinking, analyzing and critiquing our patently insane "new normal." Thanks for your work C.J.
Makes scientific sense, especially as Easter is a movable feast day i.e occurs on different days and months year-to-year
i dont share your optimism in your status as an american, get out!
I'm lucky to live in Japan, where there is no coercion. It's not necessary because 99.9% of people wear masks due to the social tyranny that has always been under the surface. But I have noticed more people brazenly showing their faces and even exchanging smiles. Maybe it's down to 99.6%.
Here in Oakland, California we still have a mask mandate. I went to the Lucky's supermakret yesterday and encountered a large sign in front of the automatic doors that scolded, "If you aren't wearing a mask, we are legally required NOT to serve you."
I bought a pint of ice cream. No mask. No one said anything...
These articles help sustain my commitment to calm but overt non-compliance with the insanity.
What can be done? If we are re-living the 1930s then it seems nothing can be done. The madness will have to burn itself out. Which is, frankly, pretty terrifying. 99% of people I know here in the UK went along quite enthusiastically with the whole charade but say now they are amazed they did but it's OK as it's over now. Except they are all jabbed and will probably get jabbed again and mostly have a spare mask "just in case it's needed". They all just think it was about a lethal cold virus which they were lucky to survive. They are not aware of the bigger picture. So what can be done?
When Carroll Quigley wrote Tragedy and Hope in the 1960s, it was his theory that Germany would always tend toward authoritarianism because if its deep tribal roots. The populace loves to feel safe and directed from above.
Just when I think it can't get any worse, it gets worse. I thought seeing all the little children line up to get their shot was bad. Or here in Commiefornia, passing a bill to allow 12 year olds to defy their parents and get the shot was bad. But I see more is coming our way. Everyone must resist.
Your sarcasm is unrivalled. Thanks for another brilliant article.
CJ is the man. Thank you for calling things by their proper names.
All this is very scary, but at the same time, I would point out that as one of the leading (and very evil) early Tavistock psychological warfare experts once said, "winning wars is not about killing, it's about destroying the enemy's morale while maintaining one's own."
All this at the end of the day is about creating the appearance that these governments are in control. Here in Canada, we saw how non-linear and quickly the situation can suddenly develop, as with the Freedom Convoy.
July 1st is Canada day and there is supposed to be a major showing of the population. Protests are planned for the entire summer, so it may very well be a summer long resistance. There will be more government crackdowns, but there will be more revolts.
I think the key is making sure a clear vision and alternative is also presented. People can't just be resisting. The entire Western financial system is sitting on a giant financial bubble, including a near-Quadrillion dollar financial derivatives bubble.
This is the elephant in the room. Those running the Western empire are not in a position of strength, and they are being strategically routed by the Eurasian powers. It's up the patriots and creative minority (as MLK described it) to get creative and hit the would-be "gods" in their strategic weak points, of which there are now many.
Trudeau would be so proud.
That’s what happens, when a tank like Angela Merkel sits on her chancellorship like glue, and converts her CDU party into a communist party, running the country and its infrastructure so down the pan, that the voter vote for anything else at all. Then you get a rabid coalition of even worse communists, finishing the job off. And most of the sheeple still haven’t noticed, it seems.
Time for Russia to kick Germany's arse again.
