Reflections on Fear

Franklin Delano Roosevelt famously said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” As the human race has more than amply proved in recent times, Roosevelt’s warning was exactly correct — though not exactly in the sense that he intended.

For Roosevelt meant that men’s fear of paternalistic government and socialist legislation was the only thing preventing them from escaping economic depression…

Following the Science: A Philosophic Question

The only nation-wide scientific analysis of the effects and effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine, conducted in Israel, shows that having previously contracted the coronavirus itself was and remains by far the best protection against future infection and illness with all known variants of the virus. In other words, the vaccines are not really working as the “experts” continuously allege, in defiance of all...

Shock Poll: PhDs Are Most “Vaccine Hesitant”

The Daily Mail reports that a survey of five million Americans regarding public attitudes about Covid-19 vaccination has turned up a “surprising” (i.e., inconvenient and soon-to-be-buried) result: When the population is sorted by education level, the highest degree of “vaccine hesitancy” is found not among the mainstream media’s favorite whipping boys, knuckle-dragging illiterates — aka “Trump voters” — but rather among those with...

Reflections on Disinformation and the Disinformed

U.S. President Joe Biden has taken the official position that people spreading social media “disinformation” (a word now used by the U.S. government and media interchangeably with “misinformation,” effectively blurring the lines between the debatably false and the intentionally fake) regarding Covid-19 or the vaccines are “killing people.” In other words, Biden, speaking as the U.S. Federal Government, is holding private individuals personally...

Irreconcilable Differences, Part Two

     “Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It’s the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconveniences.”     “But I like the inconveniences.”     “We don’t,” said the Controller. “We prefer to do things comfortably.”     “But I...

The Price of Mock Sensitivity

The top headline at this moment on my Microsoft News feed features a beautiful photograph of dozens of mature adults paying their respects to lost loved ones. Okay, to be a little clearer, it was a photograph of dozens of mature grifters disrespecting the memory of lost fellow citizens. Well, frankly, it was dozens of worthless toadies and demagogues projecting fake sentimentality to...

Herd Immunity vs. Herd Mentality

About a week ago, I noted here that the global governance consortium and its media spokesmen are currently in a race against time to impose universal vaccination on every human being as a moral and regulatory condition for being allowed to participate in “normal life” again. They are doing this partly to serve the financial interests of the big pharmaceutical companies and their...

A Funny Thing

So it turns out that Dr. Fauci, whom I have had pegged as a bureaucratic hack and a scientific fraud from day one of the American takeover of the Pandemic that Ate a Planet, was probably directly involved in supporting and funding the research at the Wuhan laboratory that created the virus.  From the Washington Post: Fauci has inspired critics in some quarters...

Random Thoughts: Life, Death, the Living, the Dead

A student sent me a text message today consisting of the following questions: “Why is it important to try to think and find the existence of my soul? Why do you live?” Interestingly, the second question implies that the terms of the first question — thinking and finding the existence of the soul — are coextensive with the question of why I live....

It’s Mourning in America

The Bidens and the Harrises stood in dim light at sunset outside the White House, all wearing black masks, all bowing their heads, surrounded by votive candles, in a show of public mourning for the “500,000 dead” in America from Covid-19. Yes, it was yet another instance of modern sentimental man’s favorite ritual of feelgood self-identification: the moment of silence. And of course,...
