Fury, Rising: The Promotion Of COVID Panic Is About To Backfire

4 Dec 2021 ~~ By James Howard Kunstler

If anything, political pressures may prevent the White House from going far enough, Binghamton University political science professor Olga Shvetsova argued.
In order to halt the virus, she said vaccines must not only be mandated but that fully vaccinated people need to be tested regularly to stop the emergence of new variants.
We cannot allow people to be sick but not too sick,” Shvetsova said. “That’s what created delta, and that’s what created omicron. It’s not only about preventing people from being terribly sick. It’s about preventing them from being sick in invisible ways.”
— As reported in the Washington Examiner

Of course, Ms. Shvetsova is not a medical doctor, and it’s reasonable to doubt that politics represents any kind of science at all, but just a pretense of it in order to affect some academic respectability. Which prompts one to wonder: what shreds of respectability remain in the universities run by Jacobin maniacs? (Answer: almost none, and zero cred, too, lately, and note that having surrendered entirely to this kind of intellectual racketeering, higher ed is just another major institution whirling around the drain.)
There’s a lot to marvel at, though, in the manifold insanity of Ms. Shvetsova’s quoted views, starting with its overall totalitarian gusto. No ambiguity there about the need for coercion, for pushing people around, with no reference to legal niceties. (Note, political science is a field apart from the study of law, which doesn’t pretend to be science.) The bit I love most is: “It’s about preventing [citizens] from being sick in invisible ways.” Huh…? You know what else is invisible? Your thoughts. You could be harboring hostile thoughts about the folks who seek to push you around, which could lead to the accusation that you are an enemy of the state!

Covid psychosis is just a reassignment of the Trump derangement, which was provoked by the generalized anxiety about collapsing industrial societies. The reasons for the collapse are not hard to grok: a declining resource base, especially affordable, economically plausible oil, a financial system purposefully detached from on-the-ground material reality, and sets of grossly foolish over-investments in complexity in the techno-narcissistic effort to work-around all that.
The epic Trump and Covid hysterias (with a side-dish of climate neurosis) managed to distract the masses from those essential economic quandaries. But now the breakdown in all the channels of production, trade, and money is roaring in our faces, and just at Christmas time, too, when the sore-beset people seek just a few weeks’ respite from their travail and despair. Don’t be surprised by their rising fury over this in the days ahead.


Comment:
How are they going to escape the explosion of rage when people finally get around to discovering tens of thousands have died without benefit of monoclonals antibodies which Trump touted over a year ago?
Then there is the positive evidence from India that HCQ, Zn and Ivermectin work in combating Wuhan Covid-19 virus.
Thanks to Dr, Fauci, “Science” has degraded into witches and witch doctors. Welcome to third world America.
Think of it as devolution in action.
Fear porn is the opiate of the Progressive Marxist/DSA Democrat Left, and it is creating lasting harm on the body politic, as well as the general level of civility and prosperity.
The 'Great Reset' aka "Fundamental Transformation of America" has turned out to be the cause of a great deal of grief and dismay. There are certainly going to be a considerable number of new alignments, and the adjustment of these new alignments is not going to be free of friction points.

Hard to work up a good panic. Never found it beneficial to me, I guess.

"The Desert Review" is a crappy news source that deals in fake news.

Can you find the story on Fox News? Fox has real life reporters, news editors and a reputation to protect.
Blow it out your ass, fucking moonbat.

The only way the virus will be put behind the world is to develop a "vaccine" that kills the recipient quickly and without pain. Then when everybody's dead the virus will have nothing to feed on and we can start over. But it won't work until everybody is dead.

Maybe the problem is that Prof Shvetsova suggested testing the Vaxxed weekly in order to catch new variants. The left apparently doesn't like that suggestion. Oh okay. You guys can have your choice between the covid nasal test and the covia anal test. There. Does that make you happier?

Ridiculous rants like that just make me laugh.

Trump isn't a doctor either.

Viruses always around, always have and will be. The insidious demented mentality of punishing hard working Americans who elected Trump had never existed before. So, with ever increasing urgency the lockdown loons have scoured heaven and earth to keep coming up with new “variants” that already, always have existed with the intent to keep us perpetually disabled.
Until we stand up to the fake with the facts as detailed above then these Nazis will continue to conjour up all sorts of scary bogus stuff and issue illegal “mandates” that we must participate in vaccine experimentation to find a solution to the “cold” that mostly does not exist

Hypochondriacs who want to declare everything is a pandemic should be required to social distance from the rest of us by making it mandatory that they stay home, wear their masks, and order the things they need over the internet.

*****CHUCKLE*****

We need to just give them their own state, (Californica comes to mind) build a formidable wall around it, and let them bloviate and virtue signal themselves and one another to death.

In other words, GET THEM THE FUCK OUT OF MY WORLD!

Democrat Party politicians certainly do try, they never ever let a good crisis go to waste.
Harken back to every crisis and you'll find Democrats in the middle of fear mongering and sowing fear among the populace.
