Quebec Masks Six Year-Olds

Take a bow Legault, Dube and Roberge. The Three Stooges. 

Serial psychological abusers of children.

Today was a discouraging day. Quebec keeps falling down further down the abyss of hysteria.

Is there no excessive measure they won't undertake?

Yet, hospitalizations continue to free fall and cases (which mean nothing) are steady.

Plus the R-value is now .83.

Nothing makes sense.

Something is drastically off in Quebec.

And parents. You never cease to amaze me at how you roll over.

Every single Quebecer should be ashamed, appalled and disappointed by what the CAQ have been doing. 

Mask Mandates: "Diabolical Silliness"

The North Dakota legislature is one step closer to outlawing mask mandates calling them 'diabolical silliness'.

Indeed, what began as possibly as a 'harmless tool in the arsenal to stop the spread' has become a full blown psychosis. 

And because the bureaucracy is riddled with sociopaths and politicians exhibit classic traits of narcissism, they're all too prepared and ready to keep preying on people's fears. That goes for infectious disease doctors and physicians who are displaying a kind of misplaced God-complex demanding people are coerced into mouth amulets.

We're so pathetically arrogant and sadistically stupid we now have our children cowering in fear. 

This is psychological abuse under any other circumstance.

But stick nebulous phrases like 'for the greater good' and 'public health emergency' and we get to hide behind a grotesque masquerade of false virtue.

The narcissism laced with Stockholm Syndrome on display is something to behold.

Alas, I may as well blow against a hurricane. The stampede is in full motion now. We can but wait this hysteria out.

As Charles MacKay wrote 169 years ago in Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, "people go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, one by one.”

Indeed.

One by one we'll have to welcome them back.

As for the others, let natural selection sort them out.

Nowhere To Hide From Hyper-Partisan Politics

Picked up 'The Culture of Narcissism' by Christopher Lasch on the recommendation of an American friend. When I balked worried about the introduction by E.J. Dionne he assured me it wouldn't take away from the value of the book.

But Dionne can't help himself. He has to insert the usual never-ending tiresome tribal partisan rhetoric so prevalent today.

What's a book about narcissism without attacking Trump's narcissism and the 'racism' of his base without any evidence to back it up? I saw no point in this. It was also interesting to note not a single reference to Obama's own narcissism and brand of 'progressive populism'.

He also called MLK a 'liberal icon'.

Wasn't he a gun owning Republican?



Why They Hate Sweden

The world hates Sweden because Sweden shows the monumental mistakes and blunders undertaken by most nations in the West.

That's why.

It's the same reason why Florida is attacked in the United States. 

Can't make the incompetent buffoons look bad yo. 

Stop Zooming

One year out and people still meet to Zoom.

I get it. We're trying to make the best of it.

But know what?

It's bull shit.

That's not living and each time you pretend to be 'saving lives' with the lies that have been perpetuated on you, is more power concentrated into the criminal incompetent assholes who put us in this mess.

Stop being weak and demand a return to normalcy.

Do you not notice the virus is pretty much done? I'd bolt myself if I saw just what kind  a bunch of lazy assed, easily scared and manipulated morons humans are.

Here's the origin of the lockdowns.

Weep.

Trudeau And His Cabinet Should Do Us All A Favor And Just Resign

Finally the world is coming around to recognizing China is a rotten state committing acts of genocide against the Uyghurs. Next up, getting China to account for the Wuhan virus.

Parliament did the right thing to recognize it but in unsurprising move, the coward Trudeau stood with China.

The Cabinet weren't present and Marc Garneau abstained. 

They in effect showed themselves to be stooges of the CCP. Now we really know. Between the excessive Covid measures and this, Canada is in the hands of CCP sympathizers. 

Canada needs to regain its moral compass and we can start by asking this sorry bunch to resign.

Now.

Meanwhile. Trudeau has no problem attacking Canadian civil rights passing laws like a little weasel while Parliament isn't in session including the gun ban (that even the RCMP questions) and his idiotic travel ban as Tam continues to terrorize Canadians with a virus no one gives a shit about anymore.

Variants. Please.

What a sorry lot this bunch.



Canada: Sweden, South Dakota And Florida Kicked Our Asses

This message is for all Canadian public officials including Trudeau, Legault, Ford, Williams, Arruda, Henry, Hinshaw, and of course our dear purveyor of panic Mother Theresa Tam. 

YOU GOT YOUR ASSES KICKED. 

As Tam and epidemiologists (who should have been ignored a long time ago) are now 'variants doom' chanting. Do you see Sweden or Iowa panicking? Do you see these places accosting their citizens at airports or handing out illegal tickets? 

We failed on so many levels it's not even funny. 

Spared of the dramatic theatre and coercive mandates, Sweden and a few U.S. states have shown the way. From day one, the UN and W.H.O. asked nations to not lock down yet that's precisely what the panicked incompetent buffoons pretending to lead the West did.

They unleashed a campaign of fear that spread faster than the virus and psychologically traumatized people - possibly permanently.

One can hope that when the dust settles and clarity reenters the conversation they will see the error of what we've done and official who pushed it will pay the price though a combination of resignation, firings and even lawsuits. 

It was a disgrace of epic proportions masking up and locking down.

History will absolutely show this was a gross over reaction and the greatest health scares in history.

We must learn from it.

The sad part is in the DNA of the state - run by psychopaths - unless there are strong safeguards against emergency powers instituted (don't hold your breath) they know they can lockdown and get away with it. 

That's the problem. We consented and rolled over like gutless fools listening to 'worse case scenarios' and believing the only way out is through a vaccine which is simply not true. Vaccines I may add, that this country couldn't get in a timely manner and sufficient amounts. 

They've set this thing up in a way that if they wanted to, they could keep this going on indefinitely. It only stops with YOU.

You let officials play on your compassion letting them manipulate you into a huge social experiment not rooted in science of any kind while telling it was and that it was for the 'greater good'.

You were played.

And in a moment of irrational fear and momentary lapse of reason, you projected your fears onto your kids; our children. You let officials mask them up and cooped them up in cages as if they were diseased little animals. You disgust me.

We were bullied and lied to by a bunch of sociopaths and incompetent clowns.

All for what turned out to be a virus with a super high survival rate. It was no plague.


The U.S. will be at herd by April and be done with. Canada, in its infinite stupidity, is prolonging the pain.

None of these measures 'saved lives'. GET THIS THROUGH YOUR HEADS.

Statistically, the literature moving forward will clearly show the trade-offs were not in our favor.

Show some damn courage Canada and spare the world the false virtue on display.

Covid Community Action: Crimes Against Humanity

Every single one of these people should be locked up. They're psychopaths. The fact they claim and insert jargon like 'Compassionate Science' should be a RED FLAG. This is all eugenics - of a variation thereof - by other (social engineering) means. 

Now the fight begins people.

If you still think 'it's just a mask', give yourself a shake ALREADY. 

We need to unfortunately mobilize and organize just to be HUMAN AGAIN.

Covid-19 is NOT a reason to be masked up or to live in perpetual fear.

Covid Math And How The Canadian Government Is Lying

 As it stands per the table in the last post.

594 Canadians are in serious condition. Canada's population is 37.4 million.

Or.

.00001584% of the population is in serious condition.

Digest this.

Now try and tell me all this restrictions are justified.

I'm now worried something worse is at play. 

Here's another interesting thing. The Lowy Institute in Australia ranked all nations based on their Covid response. To the extent, of course, we can trust these compilations. New Zealand at #1 makes me suspicious. I don't think locking down is a winning formula and would never want to emulate them.

Sweden is 35th.

Canada 68th.

In other words, Sweden does better and worse than countries who had severe restrictions. Meaning doing nothing would have more or less led to the same results.

Canada is run by clowns. And I'm not kidding. Incompetent clowns with clown epidemiologists. 

Canada Continues Psychologically Terrorizing Citizens

As Canada continues to levy some of the most restrictive measures in North America (for once can Canada ever be a leader in anything? More on this in a minute), legal action has sprung into action. 

Hopefully those decisions fall in favour of the people as they have in several places in Europe and states in the U.S..

There's no question Quebec and Canada not only run afoul of our own Charter but UN conventions as well.

And my fellow Canadians. It had to be done because the government is not signalling they're going to pivot. 15 days to flatten the curve was a lie. If you can't see this after 11 months, get your eyes, ears and brain checked.

It's unfortunate that we have to regain our rights the government is going to secure. The big problem is the unintended consequences of all these measures will having lasting psychological impacts on citizens.

It's not a conspiracy to understand fear is indeed a deliberate part of the game plan. Leaked documents in Germany revealed fear was to be deployed in order to control the population. 

Government - a place that's supposed to represent the people and protect its rights - is a hostile actor against its own people.

It's not in the public interest because if it was we'd have inquiries into the nursing home scandals in Ontario and Quebec. All this is ostensibly done to protect the elderly and vulnerable yet until now no one ever cared about this demographic and by not calling an inquiry they only cement their hypocrisy. This is not about 'saving lives'.

We've done everything we've could to do so. We've frayed and fractured the social and economic order as well as assaulted children. Deaths are in statistically negligible territory now.

This virus will possibly always claim some lives - mostly the weak and frail - and it's unclear as to what level of deaths is considered acceptable to the government as they're too bust moving goal posts. Now with deaths indeed so low it's impossible to keep the fear narrative going, they've found another boogeyman with the variants. But notice they're already saying it's not likely to be deadly but....it will lead to infections. Notice the cycle of medical sophistry at play designed to keep us in this hysteria?

More fear equals more expansionary powers for the state.

Moving forward I wish to see:

An inquiry into nursing homes.

The re-establishment of accepted pandemic protocols prior to this hysteria.

All involved in promulgated this hysteria to be investigated for potential crimes against humanity.

We need to wrestle the medical tyranny diktats from unelected officials and demand and command public leaders to act with honourable dignity in the face of adversity. 

This is what Canadians are acting like fools over social distancing and masking themselves out of a life: 


ACTIVE CASES
32,803
Currently Infected Patients
32,209 (98%)
in Mild Condition

594 (2%)
Serious or Critical

Covid And Variants: Notice How The Media Operates; Legault Is Basically Rogue

Right now our biggest problem is not being able to extricate ourselves from the grip of epidemiologists who constantly warn of disasters two months out with worst case scenario models.

This ordinarily shouldn't be a problem if we had sound and strong leadership but clearly we do not. Leaders seem to be hypnotized by them and medical bureaucrats.

At this rate, we won't be allowed to drive cars.

The media in particular continues to be highly problematic in spreading fear.

Alas, the fault here lies squarely on people. They're letting themselves be manipulated.

Now the media is hammering the variants fear.

Hard.

And there are no shortage of epidefearmongers to push it. We know of Colin Furness and Isaac Bogusch. 

But now CTV found another pair of dames from B.C..

Who, predictably, present the worst case scenario of 4000 cases in Quebec.

As most respectable and reputable epidemiologists not interviewed in Canadian media have warned people to not panic and to relax, Canada chooses to constantly play on the hysterics.

The variant is not likely to be deadly (it's not the case in Europe) so how were they going to spin around this since it doesn't sound scary enough?

Like this:

An increase like that in the transmission rate is worse than a higher severity or mortality rate, because so many more people can get infected,” they explained.

Notice how now the shift is moving from hospitalizations to just infections. She just explained any endemic virus.

Folks. You can't live life trying to avoid an infection.

Or else you won't live and have a life.

*****

I know Legault is popular among French-Canadians (for some reason. The guy has shown himself to be one arrogant buffoon who says stupid things), but the bottom line is he is arguably the most rogue leader in Canadian history having imposed a curfew on a population. One that by his own admission has no basis in science whatsoever. And rather than put an end to such a despicable power grab, he predictably extended it because that's what weak leaders hiding behind medical bureaucrats do.

And if this decision was his own, it doesn't say much about his originality or his intellectual prowess.

He just wants to show the 'peuple' he's got their back that he's doing 'something'.

But what people aren't grasping is curfews run afoul UN conventions and our laws. I believe only the Federal government can impose a curfew and we're hardly in a drastic situation with Covid no matter how they try to spin it is.

Lawless and without scientific basis. This is the curfew.

Are people this apathetic and pathetic to accept it?

We're essentially in a situation where he can tell everyone to wrap their heads in saran wrap.

Why not? It's not like he follows anything remotely logical or scientific.

Legault has gone rogue. Let's hope the courts agree.

Pure utter chaos.

Examining The Political Economy Of Covid Hysteria

Leviathan sized government, over-reliance (and even idolizing) of experts, corporate and social media combined to ferment and stoke mass hysteria in the age of Covid.

I've been writing since April of 2020, when facts began to emerge and narratives being dictated, and experts sliding their addition to control, that a hysteria had been formed.

My assertion this is going down as they greatest health panics in history remains almost one year out.

More odd - and I guess this is all symbolic of being in a hysterical rut - is officials still talk as if it's March 2020. This only adds to the confusion, distrust and panic. 

The utter abandonment of calm, logic and wisdom has been disappointing to say the least.

Here's a study worth the read on the Political Economy of Covid Hysteria.

I find the argument asserting if we were governed by 'small-government' it would be harder for hysteria to gain traction to be interesting if not persuasive. 

There's no doubt in my mind locking down people without an out to blow off steam because the routine of life was cut off will have long-lasting negative impacts for millions of people. 

"In addition, while anyone in a hysteria related to public health may voluntarily close their own business, wear a mask, or stay at home, in a minimal state, no one can use coercion to force others who are healthy and do not succumb to the hysteria to close their businesses, wear masks, or quarantine. A minority can just ignore the collective panic and continue to live their normal lives, because they are free to do so. Such a minority can be an example and a wake-up call to those that do succumb to the collective hysteria or are close to doing so. This minority may be especially attractive to borderline cases. Suppose that a small group of people during a collective health hysteria continues to go shopping, to work, to socialize, and breathe freely and does not fall ill (massively and fatally). Having this example, the anxiety of observers may fall. Observers may follow the example, and the group of hysterics shrinks. It is one of the core characteristics of decentralized systems that they allow for competition, error detection, and correction [63,64,65]. If the people that ultimately become role models for others through their interaction become ill and die, the panic would be confirmed. However, if there is really a hysteria and the threat is imagined or exaggerated, the fortune of the role models will be on average much better than is expected by those that succumbed to the hysteria. A sufficient number and variety of role models allows observers to correct and adjust their expectations 

In fact, a well-organized group [68] that has been infected by collective hysteria may be in charge of the state or get to control the state apparatus. In such a position, this group can impose measures on the rest of the population, inflicting almost unrestricted harm. It must be taken into account here that a welfare state can also be a state which is bound by the rule of law [69,70] and in which repressive interventions by the executive can be lifted by the judiciary. However, there exists the danger that in a collective panic, the protection of basic liberties guaranteed in constitutions will be abrogated by emergency measures and the judiciary will succumb to the mass hysteria, failing to lift the repressive interventions. The empirical evidence during the COVID-19 crisis demonstrates that basic liberties were not defended in welfare states  In general, the greater the coercive power of the state, the more harm can be inflicted on society in a mass hysteria. It could be argued that infection with a virus would constitute a negative technological external effect [72]. 

In a minimal state, citizens are free to decide which risks they want to assume, be they driving a car, doing bungee jumping or engaging in social interaction. Indeed, the state´s attempt to reduce infection rates in the form of mandatory face masks, the shutdown of businesses or shelter in place orders does violate the private property rights that the minimal state is supposed to defend and may produce negative externalities in form of depressions, alcoholism or suicides.

".... the state has the power to diminish and prohibit those activities that do reduce fear and anxiety, such as sports, diversion, and socializing. During the COVID-19 crisis, states used their coercive power to impose social isolation, thereby contributing to anxiety [74] and psychological strain, both ingredients that spur mass hysteria. In order to shield against biopsychological infections, the population should exercise regularly, have quality sleep, exercise regularly, have a balanced nutrition, and maintain a strong connection with other people. Governments around the world mandated lockdowns and masks during the COVID-19 crisis, making it more difficult for citizens to do any of these things. More specifically, social distancing imposed by governments reduces strong social connections, and mandatory masks prevent expressing friendliness and compassion, thereby decreasing psychological resilience."

There's no doubt the cure is worse than the disease. And it became so because we let medical bureaucrats with no concept or regard for overall public health to divert all of our resources and energies into Covid at a spectacular price. How politicians have not yet realized this problem one year later is, quite frankly, shocking. Then they wonder why conspiracy theories fly high. They can't see though measures they're fuelling hysteria. Those not caught up in the hysteria, become isolated and cynical. They no longer wish to be part of the society promulgating the madness. I'm one of those people. 

As noted here and by many astute thinkers and observers alike, it's not 'just a mask'. Masks remind people there's a problem. It keeps them in fear.

And where there's fear, there's manipulation used to keep hysteria alive.

The power is in YOU to end it.


Daily Reminder We're Not Heroes And Are Lead By Incompetent Cowards

Churchill told Britons to keep calm and cary as the greatest bombing campaign- the Blitzkrieg - in world history rained down on London. There was to be no disruption of daily routines and no bowing to fear. Today, our coward leaders ordered us into our homes and disrupted life as they terrorized civilians for a virus with a 99.98% survival rate. 

I do hope one day people will be held to account for the negative impacts on overall public health their decisions have unleashed. That includes all public officials and epidemiologists who peddled lockdowns.

Human rights matter.

And they violated our rights with reckless abandon.

They must answer for it.

It would be a shame if this is allowed become a precedence.
