Christmas only comes once a year, unless you’re a government, corporate or media dickhead, and then it comes whenever you so decree:
Christmas came early for our rulers and power elite this year. Let’s count up all the goodies covid hysteria pandemic nets them:
- They get to distribute hundreds of billions, even trillions in dollars, euro and pound among their friends in the name of making up for an economic slowdown amid outbreak and countermeasures.
- They get to posture as decisive men of the moment who take drastic action when circumstances demand it. And when spring sunshine takes care of the viruses, as it does every year, they can posture as our saviors.
- They get to push us off the streets and into our homes. Forget Kim Jong-il, Stalin or African post-coup martial law, this is the real deal. It’s a level of repression even North Korea couldn’t get away with. It serves to bring relief from and possibly break the populist revolt (gilet jaunes anyone?), but more than that don’t forget about the straightforward pleasure these people get from exercising power and feeling important.
- They get to dodge the blame for the coming economic collapse. A collapse which was due to happen soon anyway, as something or other was bound to burst the global debt bubble their central banks and monetary policies had blown up, but which will now be blamed on corona. What a dodge!
This hysteria pandemic has been such godsend to them. So much so that if I were in their place I would be looking to extend it for as long as possible.
I would make sure everyone who died while having coronavirus would be counted as its victim. And I would drown the land with corona test kits (who cares just how reliable they are having been approved so quickly) to make sure the number of infected keeps rising for as long as possible as an ever-greater proportion of your usual seasonal patients with flu-like symptoms are identified as having the dreaded covid-19. via anti-empire.com
No more shitposting from me tonight (thank the gods). Except this – one of the local radio stations here in this shit city I live in has decided to play Christmas music for one day, because so many were writing them, telling them how good Christmas music makes them feel.
One day of Christmas music and the masses here will feel better about their enslavement…for one day.
…and Jesus wept, and then vomited.
The old adage holds true….follow the money. If you have 48 minutes to spare, and who doesn’t since the Brownshirts have ordered everyone to “stay at home”, listen to what this latest 911 is all about: the money – not your’s…their’s.
