2020 is a year that will live in infamy, not only because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, but for the intense pressure citizens of the world have had to bare regarding the collapse of individual rights, human rights, and privacy rights. A monolithic authoritarian architecture has been erected under the guise of protection, only to be subverted and twisted into a pliable form to the benefit of corporate insiders whose monetary policies, gains, and misappropriations betray their superficial slogans of ‘service for the betterment of humanity’. If you still have any doubt about the overarching and insidious nature of these oligarchs, a quick gander at [insert your social media platform of choice here] will portray the inhumanity and brutality of typically drug-enhanced law enforcement and military Hypno-pawns. A true viral infection that has contaminated our once-heroic brothers and sisters in uniform. They work at the behest of governing institutions and their respective puppet masters. ‘Brave New World‘ (Aldous Huxley) is a grim reminder of our synoptic appeasement, and a current reality eloquently articulated by Orson Welles‘ in his book ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four‘, two literary prognostications of these, the days of our lives.
We get it … we have to be vigilant and do things out of the ordinary to circumvent the spread of this coronavirus. What the PTB (Powers That Be) obviously don’t get is that people are social creatures, we need other people to survive, we need to see ourselves in each other, we require that dynamic reflection to recharge. The chemical explosions that reverberate throughout our nervous systems when we interact with each other operate at a metaphysical level, and are like an addictive drug to us, we need that fix, we simply cannot operate at optimum without complete participation of our body, mind, and soul. In the absence of physical social interaction, we starve ourselves of the essential elements that make us uniquely human. If you’ve ever gone hungry you’ll know full well how, after a short time, the lack of energy permeates your every movement, the brain fades away mid discussion, the difficulty to focus leads to errors of judgment which can, in and of themselves, cause life-threatening situations. How much of our life force disintegrates when we are forced to starve ourselves of the bio-chemical re-charge through physicality and person-to-person interaction? Does the ‘Ghetto Police’ even understand that level of thought? Are the authoritarians who instruct them even educated enough in the science of humanity to understand the repercussions of these oppressive actions? Who the hell allowed these intoxicated is to have such unfettered all-encompassing control over us in the first place? 2020 is a year that will live in infamy
I’m sure you’ve heard the cry …”I’d rather have the coronavirus than to be locked away from everyone like a prisoner in my own home“, and that, in essence, is what we have been reduced to … prisoners. Don’t get me wrong, I think it is a good thing to quarantine oneself if you are fearful of contracting a virus, on my own terms, not some creep in a $5000 suit and a military-grade gang of enforcers. That is my point, YOU should make the decision, we don’t have owners, slavery was abolished a long time ago and governments govern on behalf of the people it is supposed to represent, it is not given authority by the people to have ‘Overlord’ status. It is an inorganic non-life-form, it does not bleed, it does not sleep, it does not have empathy nor does it truly care about anything outside its own survival, it has a function to fulfill, a program to run, that’s it. Inasmuch as how we program it, how much we feed it, and how much autonomy it is allowed, it will either serve us or serve us up. By this measure, should we the people, ever allow it (govt) to be appropriated by other corporate non-life-forms, we can absolutely expect the results we see today. Are we witnessing the event horizon of the urban gulag? What happens next will be determined by the following weeks/months … date-stamp this post. Once our privacy has been removed, security abandons us and we are easily relieved of our freedoms.
It is not too late.
