Think of all the institutions that have marched in lockstep during the dramatic decline in civilisation over three years. It’s been media, Big Tech, large corporations, academia, the medical industry, central banks, and Government at all levels. They have all been in on the lie. They sat by and said nothing or even cheered as governments utterly wrecked rights and liberties that humanity has fought for over 800 years.
The examples are too numerous to list but one stands out to me.
For several months, New York City attempted a bold experiment making a place for vaccinated people only. As a result, no person who chose against the experimental Covid shot was allowed in restaurants, theatres, bars, libraries or museums. Disproportionately hit were 40% of black residents who refused the vaccine due to the community’s deep awareness of the long history of U.S. pharmaceuticals ties with racial eugenics.
For decades, U.S. policy has banned practices with disparate impacts on racial minorities. Then one day, no one cared.
Where was the outrage? I cannot recall a single voice of opposition appearing in any major newspaper or mainstream venue. This went on for months! Only a few of us were yelling about this but we barely got any traction, despite the deep injustice being perpetrated along strong racial lines.
This of course is just one example but thousands.
Even right now, unvaccinated Canadians are not allowed to cross the border into the U.S. for business or pleasure or even to see family members a mile away. This is ongoing. It applies to everyone in the world except for the hundreds of thousands pouring across the Southern border, who are not sporting vaccine passports.
Congress never voted for this. It’s all due to the CDC, which somehow still retains the power to ruin everyone’s life and liberty despite many court rulings that have tried to rein in this organisation’s power.
Where is the outrage? Where was the outrage about school and church closings, the mandatory masking, the wrecked businesses, the bad science, the astonishing lies foisted on the public day after day?
How the heck did this happen? Why is it still happening? In particular, where were intellectuals? Yes, some spoke out and were severely punished for it as a lesson to others.
The authors of the Great Barrington Declaration have said repeatedly that their short statement was the least innovative and controversial statement they ever penned. It was a plain statement of widely accepted public-health principles applied to the current moment. But the moment in which they dropped that bomb was one in which widely accepted principles of public health had been trampled and buried for the six months before.
Thus did this plain statement of normal truths come across as shocking. It wasn’t just what was being said but that actual credentialled academic professionals would dare to deploy their knowledge and status in service of truth rather than regime priorities.
That it was shocking at all tells you all you need to know.
