These issues are not remotely related, and yet if you hold any of one
group’s views, you are hated by the other group as if you believed them
all; and if you hold most of one group’s views, but not all, you are
treated as if you were a traitor for deviating even slightly from the
Ain’t that the damned truth. And this covidiocy has polarized us even further.
We live in a time when moderates are treated worse than extremists,
being punished as if they were more fanatical than the actual fanatics.
I know my having stuck to my guns that this mess was a fraud from the word go, I have alienated a reader or two who’s view is counter to mine.
I haven’t changed my thoughts. The numbers have proven me right time and time again, and yet here we are 3-4 months down the road and the hysteria continues to ramp up. Even after the CDC releases numberssaying what I and others, including professionals of standing, have been saying.
Where does this end?
God only knows, but from what I am seeing, it will NOT end without bloodshed. The anger and fear are being fomented and herded towards something and there is no way it can be backwalked now. Not without certain individuals in power being prosecuted for the crimes they have commited under false pretenses. And we all know just how likely that is with our “Just-us” system. Using historical scenarios, I seriously believe we are on the cusp of an event that will mirror the stage of the Weimar Republic, its fall, and the rise of a demagogue leader.
I highly doubt his name will be Biden.
And it may be a ‘her’: far more likely with how feminized this country has shown its leanings the last couple of months.
Prognostication is tricky, and the ‘best’ at prognosticating are always wildly off, but always listened to; the ones that “get it right” are always kicked around, called shitty names and ignored.
Thats ok, I can handle being ignored, so long as I have an outlet. Take that, or my choices away, then things will get froggy.
And I am not alone in that thinking.
