Three more contrarian predictions

  1. You will not be able to vote your way out of tyranny.

You will have a plethora of different parties and individuals to vote for at your next state and federal elections who will be outspoken against some or all of the truly totalitarian responses to Covid19. Good on them. If I ever bothered to vote I might even put a number or a tick or whatever it is you people do every six months or so during yet another compulsory compliance muster for one or another of your multiple useless levels of govenmentation. (Instead of drawing a tastefully composed dick and balls). But none of those parties and candidates will achieve jack shit. Still, it’s not worse than voting uniparty.

2. You never needed a second amendment to protect yourselves from the useless, conniving inferior weasels who put themselves forward for “public service”.

I don’t remember the passages in the new testament where Jesus gives the parables about stockpiling ammo or recommends commando shit to nix Roman soldiers and their local stooges. Remember: These berks “governing” us are some of the most inadequate subhumans you would likely meet in a lifetime of working in outreach programs for the terminally unhygienic. And somewhere in their reptilian brain cells even they know we’re at the point of not taking their crap any more. It won’t take violence. It will take a sufficient number of people to stand up and say quite clearly: “No more”.

3. All these governments now in power will be swept away at each of their respective next elections. Labour, Liberal, doesn’t matter. They’re all GONE.

A word from Carpe

In response to a recent post, Carpe wrote a comment that has more thumbs up than any other comment so far on this blog. Reproduced in part below. Which got me thinking.

Watching history videos I have a new word today:

Chevauchée

The chevauchée could be used as a way of forcing an enemy to fight, or as a means of discrediting the enemy’s government and detaching his subjects from their loyalty. This usually caused a massive flight of refugees to fortified towns and castles, which would be untouched by the chevauchée.

Are we being subject to some sort of modern cheevauchee? Is the idea of these insane policies to drive sentiment towards our governments and institutions to utter contempt?

Here it is in part, from Carpe:

My Australian citizenship was something I have always valued, but no longer. What I have seen in the last 2 years from the outside looking in horrifies me, this is not the country I knew as a boy nor is it the place where my children spent their years as toddlers and youths. It is not the place where my wife could spend her working and private life free from the formalities that exist in Japan but could unleash her inner bogan with a joy that was delightful to see.

Many people here know that I am an expat living in Japan, I have met and had dinner with people here and on the old iteration of the Cat. I am a FIFO worker (Building/Civil/Marine) primarily in pacific rim work and SE Asia.

I should thank you I suppose, you have given me the motivation to renounce my citizenship, something I never thought I would do, as being Australian defined who I was overseas. Becoming a Japanese citizen is a very difficult process (google it to find out how difficult it is), but what you write and the sense of entitlement that goes with it leaves me gobsmacked.

Australia is effectively a Gulag, run at the whim of insane premiers and the lackwit CHO’s who’s raison detre seems to be bedwetting and victimhood. The mere fact that the federal political class obviated their duty to the Australian people to these state based swine and their petty tyrants in waiting in both the bureaucracy and policing is a disgrace.

Australia may no longer be my home, but sadly, being an Australian is no longer what I wish to be.

Enough!

We need more of you people who believe the vaccine is great to take this stance. It isn’t the vaccine that worries me. It’s the lies, enforcement and coercion around it. Make a stand. They’re compelling people to get injections they don’t want, a medical intervention, just to maintain some minimum facsimile of the lives they’re used to. If you don’t take an active stance here, I doubt you will over anything subsequent.

What it’s like to be locked down with depression

Around eight years or so ago (I forget) I stopped drinking. Which promptly, in combination with coinciding with the ending of my time in the Reserves seems to have tipped me into depression. Now, I could never understand what people meant by “depression”, seemed a bit silly and self indulgent. Surely you could exercise or motivate yourself out of something so ephemeral? Go for a run or something, right? What’s wrong with these weak minded idiots? That was my thinking if I ever thought about it.

What’s depression like then? You ask.

I’m Against Your Damnable Tyranny

… and I Don’t Accept Your Excuses.

From The Declaration of Independence:

..

 –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

..

Your parliaments no longer sit. Your representatives no longer listen. Your police chiefs no longer uphold the right. Your courts no longer abide by the constitution. Your governors no longer preside over legitimate governments.

You have given us good cause to replace the lot of you.

Contra the Contrarian…or: What am I Missing?

In which our opponents get to make their case.

If one starts with one’s conclusion as an assumption, say: “We know lockdowns work… therefore there would have been many more cases and deaths without lockdowns, so if cases rise we have to lock down harder”, a person (or a country) could get themselves in quite the pickle.

An intelligent contrarian asks themselves “What if I’m wrong”? on a regular, almost daily basis. In the spirit of such we ask ourselves: A large chunk of the world seems to be against us when we say that there is little point in vaccinating most healthy people under 50, or that lockdowns, travel restrictions and dividing the nation up into essential and non essential humans seems rather, well, bloody vicious and stupid, but…what if they’re right and I’m wrong? What if there’s something I’m not seeing?

What if we’ve made some mistake, if somewhere in our logic we used a conclusion as an assumption to kick the whole process off? What if, furthermore, because of our biases we were blind as to what those assumptions were?

Well then, we would rely upon our opponents in debate to point out where that error was. So go to it. Please tell me where I’m wrong. Only do so without regurgitating the mainstream bilge we’re all inundated with on a daily basis. This is the place to make intelligent arguments in favour of the mainstream view on covid.
