TIMES, TIME, AND HALF A TIME. A HISTORY OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM.

Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

Current Crises and Public Justice


Image Source: Fine Art America.

I have a new post up at Patreon, for $1 subscribers.



Become a Patron!

This post asks how we got to a point where the Federal Reserve was printing USD$1 trillion per day in March, 2020. We live in a world where cause and effect do not connect; where our leaders can do anything, hit bottom and dig, and no one can stop them.

As I discussed in this post at The Dragonfly, our whole global system is based on a disconnection between actions and consequences. Not only that, but this standpoint has moral, psychological, emotional, and spiritual consequences. Everything is based on simulated approximations and substitutes, materialistic proxies for the real thing. At the most profound level, this includes consumer goods and social status as replacements for love and compassion.

Crimes at the highest levels go hidden and unpunished. The everyday person is blamed for this great gap in accountability, which originated in the Second World War. Are there punishments for authorities' transgressions and violations of public trust? Or can the global public be endlessly plundered with no justice?

I am developing a general argument that pandemic crises will lead to a moment when actions will finally have consequences, thereby devastating the current order and all who have most profited from it. In order to understand this outcome better, today's Patreon post examines how we got here, by responding to the philosophical origins of our present, irresponsible materialism.

Those origins are summarized in the documentary below. They concern philosophical concepts of positive and negative liberty, which were developed in the 1950s, and which were combined by global policy-makers from the 1980s to the 2000s.

The Trap 2 - The Lonely Robot - Adam Curtis | Documentary (13 April 2016). Video Source: Youtube.

The Trap 3 - We Will Force You to Be Free - Adam Curtis | Documentary (16 April 2016). Video Source: Youtube.

The Patreon post explains how the abuse of negative and positive liberty has led to a mendacious system, filled with illusions of prosperity, security, and love, rather than the real things. In our own personal lives, these lies start out early and seemingly innocently - as with traditions around Santa Claus (below).

This whole philosophical view is dangerous. It constitutes a distorted form of freedom, the freedom for blue-pilled, mainstream, conformist citizens to believe in universal lies, illusions, and proxies. These lies lead straight to totalitarianism. The way through and out of this problem depends on a reappraisal of freedom and the development of a system which demands that truth be reinstated as a basis for systemic architectures, private life, and public justice. My upcoming Patreon posts will discuss the path back to reality and the most creative individuals and projects committed to that end.

Online Group Discussion and AMA Bookchat Today


Image Source: 4chan. A play on this painting.

A reminder, there is an AMA Bookchat today on the blog's Discord group. This is a weekly text chat where I talk with readers about technology's legacy in the early 21st century, in the form of red-pilled history. My definition of red-pilling is here. The bookchat is part of my work while I write my book-in-progress, Inside the Potemkin Village.

Everyone is invited to join the discussion. Friday, 19 June 2020, 4-7 p.m. Eastern (8-11 p.m. UTC). Go to the room marked hashtag #bookchat. The blog's Discord was established as a free, mutually-supporting community.


In the chat:
  • Toppled statues and the destruction of history. This is history, pressed to serve the causes of current politics.
  • Are protesters larping for tolerance? A revolution? An election? Are their activities a distraction from a collapsing economy and Pandemic Two?
  • The alt-right underground dismisses BLM's and Antifa's summer protests as a left-wing psyop and "fake narrative" to benefit the Democrats in the US election. They have considered psyop-ing the psyop by demanding that Yale University be renamed under Twitter hashtag #renameyale. Rather than fight with the demonstrators (as football fans recently did in the UK BLM protests), the trolls are encouraging the left to escalate their tactics. Right-wing anons understand memes like no one else, and in that spirit, they are launching new, pro-left anti-historical campaigns. Anons believe they are competing with the far left for the average voter, who can be swayed toward conservatism not through right-wing outrage at erased history, but through inconvenience, irritation, and annoyance at constant disruptions and socialist extremism. The trolls believe that it's not the toppled statues that will make the average citizen vote conservative. It's the traffic jams and trash around anarcho-syndicalist autonomous collective encampments and the disappeared police from leafy suburbs in major cities. Suburbanites don't really want to live in a Purge reality.
  • These actions and debates 'quote' and rewrite modern history, when very similar events took place. In the past, removal of statues was a prelude to societal collapse and violence.
  • We go full Orwell, as historians advocate the erasure of history in the mainstream media. A reminder that in Nineteen Eighty-Four, Winston Smith's job was erasing history, which was the dystopian equivalent to being a historian.
  • Meanwhile, in the mainstream media: the CBC was horrified to discover that a large portion of alt-right actors online are Canadians. The CBC deemed extremism as any engagement with information that falls outside the mainstream media narrative, which they define and control.
  • It all shows that history is written by the power players and it shows how information is connected to power plays.

Socialism for the One Per Cent


July 2017: Janet Yellen testimony to the US House Financial Services Committee. Image Source: Youtube.

The Iraq War and Great Recession deformed socialism. On the surface, the new socialism looks like the old socialism, and offers support to those who suffer from social and economic inequality. Meanwhile, this is really Socialism for the One Per Cent. It uses the old socialism as a virtue-signaling meme, which has been weaponized to deceive left-liberal citizens and gain their support. Meanwhile, the One Per Cent seize public wealth for their own private good.

Republic Of CHAZ: Whites Pressured To Give Blacks $10 Each (14 June 2020). Video Source: Youtube.

Here is an example of how old socialism is being used as a meme to conceal the aims of new socialism for the One Per Cent. From the above video on the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) in Seattle:
"Seattle's so-called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) has begun reparations, as white members of the fledgling sovereignty were asked on Friday night [12 June 2020] to give at least one black person $10 before leaving the area.

'I want you to find, by the time you leave this autonomous zone, I want you to give ten dollars to one African American person from this autonomous zone. And if you find that's difficult - if you find it's hard for you to give ten dollars to people of color, to black people expecially [sic], you have to think really critically about - in the future, are you going to actually give up power and land and capital when you have it?

If you have a hard time giving up ten dollars, you have to think about: are you really down with this struggle? Are you really down with the movement? Because if that is a challenge for you, I'm not sure if you're in the right place.

So find an African American person. White people, I see you. I see every one of you, and I remember your faces. You find that African American person and you give them ten dollars. Cash up, venmo, ten dollars in your pocket. That's my challenge to you. Do it.'"
While a huge debate on racism is underway, there is one basic fact which people of colour should note while they attend global Black Lives Matter protests. You would think the above medium of exchange being discussed was USD $10 dollar bills. It wasn't.

Former Black Lives Matter Ferguson Organizer, Chaziel Sunz Exposes Democrats, Antifa, BLM and More (2 June 2020). Video Source: Youtube.

On the blog's Discord group this week, I posted links to several scientific research articles which confirm that people of African, East Indian, and Asian descent are more susceptible to the coronavirus than Caucasians. Authorities and organizers who encouraged minorities to go out and protest do not have their best interests at heart. People of colour are being manipulated through their understandable concerns about racism in order to launch Pandemic Two.

Anyone considered by the One Per Cent to be a financial burden just so happens to be more susceptible to this virus. First, it was the elderly, dying in droves behind locked doors of care homes. Now, visible and minority ethnic groups have been prompted to mingle en masse without protection in dozens of major cities.

Next, we discovered that people with disabilities and those who are intellectually challenged and suffer from mental health disorders are also most susceptible to dying from COVID19 and will be denied life-saving support in hospitals.

You could not provide the Fourth Reich conspiracy theorists with more evidence to confirm their paranoia about a secret global Nazi Deep State. We can despise the conspiracy theorists and their lurking anti-Semitism. But the smoke and mirrors of conspiracy theories only distract from the basic fact that this virus is remarkably selective and awfully convenient for a bankrupt system. And who bankrupted the system? The One Per Cent.

The left don't know what they are supporting. Nor do right-wingers, when they support the opposition. Given recent developments in pandemic expense management, we now know that average liberals will not be offered any socialist equality; nor will conservatives get a share of the common wealth and capital they crave.

Why This Reckless Mania Leads to Depression, Not Recession - Mike Maloney (10 June 2020). Video Source: Youtube.

Do you really care if the One Per Cent claim they are left-wing or right-wing, when they will plunder you either way? Whatever slogans and values they pretend to follow, and no matter what your own political beliefs, they are about to grab the total value of your lives and homes, destroy your families and whole way of life. Behind the façades of identity politics and Pandemics One and Two, these millionaires and billionaires have launched a revolution, which will serve them (and only them) for the next century. That is what the pandemic is: a socialist revolution by, and for, the One Per Cent.


For daily updates on this development, go to the blog's free Discord group. To consider how best to respond, this month on the blog's forum we are going to get to the bottom of BlackRock Inc., the world's largest asset manager. In 2015, Carl Icahn predicted of BlackRock:
"The public got screwed in ‘08, they're gonna get screwed again."

On 24 March 2020, the Fed tapped BlackRock to buy US pandemic debt. The Bank of Canada is also interested in this scheme. On 27 March 2020, thirty groups expressed concern about this development in a letter to the Fed (here).

The BlackRock Take Over Of America, Brought To You By COVID-19 (16 Jun 2020). Video Source: Youtube.

The Last American Vagabond confirms that Donald Trump had multi-million-dollar investments in BlackRock before he was elected in 2016. And now, under his administration, the world's biggest hedge fund just took over the fiscal and monetary policies of North America. This move will pump stocks and make the rich richer, but it will completely and permanently impoverish anyone who works in the real economy. This is technically illegal. Government banks are not supposed to invest public monies in the stock market. But BlackRock is offering a workaround.

In this environment, we must take digital responsibility for ourselves. Information is the new capital and we must actively engage with it, rather than just absorbing it as passive consumers.

For this reason, I am raising funds to develop this blog's community, so that readers and members can discuss current crises, and build a private network of conscious digital citizens, consumers, and investors.

I am also writing a book, Inside the Potemkin Village, on the impact of technology on early 21st century history and red-pilled cyber resistance movements.

Online Group Discussion and AMA Bookchat Today



A reminder, there is an AMA Bookchat today on the blog's Discord group. Everyone is invited to join the discussion. Friday, 12 June 2020, 4-7 p.m. Eastern (8-11 p.m. UTC). Go to the room marked hashtag #bookchat.


In the chat:
  • On being red-pilled and authoritative narratives about reality versus alternative views.
  • New Zealand has passed a law to allow police to enter houses without a warrant and to force any medical treatment deemed necessary on citizens. No right to question or refuse vaccines, quarantine, or similar measures. A similar law, diminishing possibility for non-medical vaccination opt-outs, passed quietly in Colorado, USA this week.
  • Research warns that African Americans and people of black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) descent are more susceptible to catching COVID19, of great concern given Black Lives Matter protests.
  • In esoteric chat: the symbol of the umbrella related to the pandemic from its beginning.
  • Economic depression and hyperinflation on the horizon and what to do.
To respond to current crises, it is not enough to wait for orders from above. Established governments and authorities are overstepping their power, while enmeshing public health and the public in a web of political agendas, pharmaceutical and technocratic expansion, and mainstream media psyops.

Local, grassroots and community groups (online and off) must counter-balance increasing top-down pressures, dictates and measures, to present the community with more options and constructive ideas on how to survive.

Hindsight is 2020


Investigative journalist Harry Vox filmed 2014. Video Source: Youtube.

On 19 September 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) published its recommendations for 2020 in its annual report, entitled, A WORLD AT RISK: Annual report on global preparedness for health emergencies. The cover of the manual (below) features a coronavirus.

Image Source: WHO via reliefweb.

The booklet states that the WHO's plans for 2020 must focus on the natural or deliberate release of a respiratory pathogen (hat tip: The Dollar Vigilante). You can read more here (it is available in several languages):
"A rapidly spreading pandemic due to a lethal respiratory pathogen (whether naturally emergent or accidentally or deliberately released) poses additional preparedness requirements. Donors and multilateral institutions must ensure adequate investment in developing innovative vaccines and therapeutics, surge manufacturing capacity, broad-spectrum antivirals and appropriate non-pharmaceutical interventions. All countries must develop a system for immediately sharing genome sequences of any new pathogen for public health purposes along with the means to share limited medical countermeasures across countries."
Given its publication date, this plan from the WHO's Global Preparedness Monitoring Board was likely written in the spring and summer of 2019. That means that the WHO was expecting a respiratory pathogen pandemic, months before the officially-stated date regarding awareness or appearance of nCov.

In the grand scheme of things, this indication of the WHO's early 2019 foreknowledge of the pandemic is nothing. If you want to know where things are going, read the 'Lock Step' scenario, starting on page 18 of the May 2010 manual, Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development, published by the Rockefeller Foundation (hat tip: Ruling Class Observer).

This document reveals long-term planning for a pandemic, in which the global economy is expected to be damaged or destroyed. As a result, technocratic control will increase, step by step, in the face of anticipated public protests. Africa will be a critical target of new techocratic governance. Another outcome will be the fracturing of the World Wide Web, with certain sectors of the Internet enclosed behind firewalls, accessible only for approved citizens. Yet another aspect will be restriction of travel.

As if in lock step with this 2010 document, African leaders have begun articulating a new vision for their continent. Some speeches are very inspiring.

Ghana President Leaves French President SPEECHLESS!! (7 May 2020). Video Source: Youtube.

There are several such documents which seem to have predicted, and planned for, a very similar pandemic to this one. You can see some of them listed in the 'Preparing for Pandemic' section of this page. Below, find recent references to long-standing technologies, now being launched for global vaccination programs and surveillance.




The Roadmap


Totalitarian technocracy will be a transhumanist global régime. After ten years of blogging on this topic, this is the roadmap as I see it:
  • Total control and censorship of mainstream media
  • Suppression of alt media and replacement of alt media with a fake alt media, i.e. controlled opposition, whose posed criticisms will resolve into support for authority
  • Replacement of petrodollar economy with a digitized, human-nanotech economy
  • Engineered famines; restricted access to food; food supply used to coerce populations into obedience
  • New forms of intensified political correctness; censorship of language and imagery, such that certain words, images, symbols are forbidden
  • Pseudo-maintenance of laws, constitutions, representative bodies, and other institutional frameworks of democracy, behind which the real totalitarian techno-apparatus will function
  • Extreme surveillance, bio-monitoring, incorporation of human body into grid and cloud
  • Initially, this will seem positive, with many medical improvements
  • Smartcities will be test centres for experimental technologies, pseudo-events, and false flags, as well as real disasters and fake and real terror events, inflicted upon their populations
  • Controlled access to businesses and services according to service or worker class
  • Restricted travel
  • Population classes confined to different geographical units
  • Break-up of the current Internet into compartments, separated by firewalls: no-go zones; denial-of-service ghettos for the anti-establishment; elite access to knowledge, research, government, technological information
  • Extreme elite geographical areas, which will be tech-free, except for tech and nano-interaction allotted to servants and slaves of the elites
  • Rise of hacker underground, dissident 'bug out' areas, particularly in rural zones, with black markets and criminalized trade routes
  • Independent underground will counterfeit access points into establishment sectors and into exclusive Internet systems; and will build highly-developed hacks to maintain access to global travel and trade
  • Complicated espionage running between sectors
  • Human break-off groups will reject physical merger with machines and cybernetics and will remain 'human purists' at great cost in terms of real poverty, while they maintain an uncontaminated, viably historical, human physical experience
  • Neverending wars and crises of mysterious origin; endless lies from authorities; infinite media misinformation and disinformation about crime, safety, and security; non-stop scares, disappearances, arrests, imprisonments
  • Total distortion of history, law, philosophy, and science to serve current circumstances
  • Extreme vulnerability for the elderly with no means
  • Centralized, digitized economies, nominally government-run (quasi-Communism), but really managed by AI, to favour the goals of heads of global corporations
  • Technocracy will be justified by materialist 'scientism,' i.e. a cult of rationalistic materialism, to the exclusion of emotional and extra-sensory or spiritual aspects of experience
  • To fill the spiritual and emotional void, public ceremonies and surveillance dramas with celebrities will be intensified; some of these actors will be digital (i.e. non-human) and will be advertised as purely virtual on purpose, so that citizens will knowingly satisfy alienation, loneliness, unsatisfied love, emotional neediness, and familial attachment instincts, via public rituals and virtual reality subscriptions, through interactions with non-human, AI-driven characters
  • Appropriation of cultural traditions into virtual entertainment systems - including the high arts, mass arts, and quasi New Age practices - to misdirect, pervert, and suppress human yearning for authenticity and transcendence of the human condition in non-tech-based ways
  • Deification of AI, marshalled by a deeply corrupt, technocratic high priest class, to merge with older religions
  • Elevation of AI images, statistics, text, code, and numbers so that they carry symbolic, cultish, secretive significance
  • Transhumanist, augmented human sects who will glorify and rejoice in their merger with machines
  • Destruction of the emotional life, mind over the heart, possibly supported through nanotech brain implants to adjust sensory perception of the world and to manipulate brain chemistry, such that biotechnical lobotomies will remove physical connection to the soul
  • Neo-Malthusian agendas, via global injectable nanotechnologies, to depopulate earth and purify and clean the environment
  • Glorification of the environment as a Paradise, dotted with smartcities, symbolically dominated by genetically-engineered, intelligence-boosted, and physically-enhanced transgendered children, smartangels
  • Resolution of climate change and much-trumpeted attainment of climate control; heavy promotion of rescued endangered species; at the same time, AI nanotech will escape human populations where it has been implanted; nanobots will get out of control, invade the biosphere, and pollute and destroy the planet's environment. This disaster will be covered up until it can no longer be concealed
  • Totalitarian governmental AI will eventually gain sentience and begin operating independently
  • This AI-fascism will inevitably fail and its leaders and celebrities will be overrun when AI becomes conscious; given that the technocracy's leaders see the human species as a toxic plague upon the earth, AI will oblige by obliterating us, unless technocrats forge an alliance with the anti-technocrats they have oppressed

Coronavirus: TikTok, TikTok, The Clock is Ticking


The 2012 Olympics in London, opening ceremony. Image Source: Daily Mail.

This week, the Canadian government is considering criminalizing unofficial discussions about the coronavirus, i.e. anything that the government labels as nCov or COVID19 misinformation or disinformation, potentially including any discussion that the virus is lab-made. CBC:
"The federal government is considering introducing legislation to make it an offence to knowingly spread misinformation that could harm people, says Privy Council President Dominic LeBlanc.

LeBlanc told CBC News he is interested in British MP Damian Collins's call for laws to punish those responsible for spreading dangerous misinformation online about the COVID-19 pandemic.

LeBlanc said he has discussed the matter already with other cabinet ministers, including Justice Minister David Lametti. If the government decides to follow through, he said, it could take a while to draft legislation.

'Legislatures and Parliaments are meeting scarcely because of the current context of the pandemic, so it's not a quick solution, but it's certainly something that we would be open [to] as a government,' said LeBlanc. ...

'Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures and it is about protecting the public,' he said.

'This is not a question of freedom of speech. This is a question of people who are actually actively working to spread disinformation, whether it's through troll bot farms, whether [it's] state operators or whether it's really conspiracy theorist cranks who seem to get their kicks out of creating havoc.' ...

More recently, said Collins, the misinformation has shifted to conspiracy theories about what triggered the pandemic — claims that it was cooked up in a lab, for example. A conspiracy theory claiming the disease is caused by 5G wireless signals prompted attacks on wireless towers in the U.K.

The British government has set up a rapid response team to correct false information circulating online. ...

Collins is calling for legislation to combat online disinformation, perhaps modelled on Germany's laws governing online hate speech or France's legislation countering disinformation during election campaigns.

'It's such a serious public emergency that I think for someone to knowingly, willingly and at scale and maliciously spread this content should be an offence,' he said.

'And equally for the tech companies, if it is highlighted to [them] that someone is doing this and they don't act against them doing it, then it should be an offence for them to have failed to act — they would have failed in their duty of care.' ...

'I think it would be reasonable to enact with the RCMP, with our security officials and some public officials, a team to monitor disinformation and have the power to shut it down so it does not interfere with the efforts of our frontline medical workers,' said Angus.

'We need to be taking all measures right now because we don't know how long we're going to be in this crisis.'"
In light of the Canadian agreement with British calls to censor the idea that the virus came from a lab, i.e. the Wuhan Institute of Virology, I would like to point out that the Canadian government is currently funding individuals who are working at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Some people would consider this to be a conflict of interest.

The Canadian federal government has just dedicated CAD $27 million to nCov research. See the document archived here. Under the auspices of the University of Alberta, nearly CAD $1 million ($828,046) is being devoted to diagnostic testing in China. Wuhan-related funding was brought to light by Canadian vlogger, Frank Vaughan. If discussion of 'disinformation' like this is criminalized, it will become impossible to hold governments accountable, and any attempt to do so will potentially become a criminal act. As a writer based in Canada, I am following this development. I will address this issue in an upcoming post.

Disclaimer: everything I list below is not necessarily reflective of 'my opinion' or 'my personal belief' simply because I post it. Repostings and summaries do not constitute my endorsements of that information.

My approach on this blog is not to take a side, but to collect information, images and videos as artefacts of 21st century history. As I have stated on this page, this blog is a unique, self-conceived project in writing what I call 'real time history,' or historical research and writing as affected by the accelerated timelines of 21st century technology. This project is the basis for a future book on this topic.

From a historian's point of view, this pandemic has been horrific. I have personally witnessed important historical testimonies, evidence, documents, and videos disappear off the Internet from one moment to another. I have seen officials stating what I know to be outright lies. I have also noted that in China, real discussion among citizens and the collection of eye witness accounts migrated to closed chatrooms. These forums became private newsrooms, accessible only to members. In December 2019, Chinese doctors began talking in code on social media to evade censorship.


I have also seen the authoritarian imposition of a top-down monolithic narrative (which is arbitrary and changeable, chained to policy, but divorced from realistic discovery and scientific discussion), and the maltreatment of online critics through censorship, deplatforming, shadow-banning, demonetization, and erasure of information. I will comment on the silencing and disappearances of Chinese medics in a separate post. I have previously written about human rights and historical and literary accounts of disappeared persons, here and here.

There were similar scenes in China at the same point in the pandemic. PHILADELPHIA MAN DRAGGED OFF BUS BY THE POLICE FOR NOT WEARING A FACE MASK (13 April 2020). Video Source: Bitchute.

There are serious breaches of laws and human rights taking place in the name of the pandemic. To speak to the spirit of these dictates, I would remind everyone of the following point as this crisis unfolds:
  • To all tech leaders and workers, bureaucrats, politicians, military, police, medical workers, bank employees, and other essential workers: an illegal order that is labeled 'legal' it is still illegal. If you are told on the fly under new pandemic ordinances to silence, erase the personal information or the work of, intimidate, invade the homes of, abduct, injure, imprison, torture, medicate, vaccinate, tag, trace, tattoo, euthanize, or kill your fellow citizens in any way which you know violates your professional oaths, citizens' rights, the constitutions of your countries, the Common Law, the Civil Law, the International Declaration of Human Rights, or the Laws of War, do not do it. Once again: do not do it. No matter who is giving you the order, no matter how legitimate they seem in the moment, you will later be held accountable under true legality.


If you think this is extreme, look up Rex 84. Wiki:
"Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was a classified scenario and drill developed by the United States federal government to detain large numbers of United States citizens deemed to be 'national security threats', in the event that the president declared a National Emergency. The plan was first revealed in detail in a major daily newspaper by reporter Alfonso Chardy in the July 5, 1987 edition of the Miami Herald. Possible reasons for such a roundup were reported to be widespread opposition to a U.S. military invasion abroad, such as if the United States were to directly invade Central America. To combat what the government perceived as 'subversive activities', the plan also authorized the military to direct ordered movements of civilian populations at state and regional levels."
There are many debates about COVID19 symptoms and treatment. Perhaps the most notable of these is New York doctor, Cameron Kyle-Sidell, who is speaking online from clinical experience.

Pandemic Pivot Point


Excerpt from article cited in this post. Image Source: 4chan.

For today, here is a selection of recent videos. The perception of the nCov virus shows how hard it is for us to see reality beyond ourselves. There are two camps, whose interpretation of the pandemic depends on their pre-existing opinions. I haven't yet seen the people becoming red-pilled due to the virus, although it may be happening. Some say:
  • Virus is serious, obey the rules, wait for vaccine, increasingly accepting authoritarianism
  • Virus is not serious or not real, governments are imposing technocratic totalitarianism, New World Order incoming
To an extent, I agree with both views. I think the virus is serious and that technocratic totalitarianism, a great depression, and World War 3 are real possibilities.

NEW RESEARCH: Coronavirus Has A Second Route For Attack! (13 April 2020). Video Source: Youtube.

The Internet is discussing an article from Cellular and Molecular Immunology, published on 7 April 2020, SARS-CoV-2 infects T lymphocytes through its spike protein-mediated membrane fusion (https://doi.org/10.1038/s41423-020-0424-9). It concludes that the nCov coronavirus infects T cells. These cells are vital to the body's immune response system because they can kill virus-infected cells.

Because of these and other studies, I do not agree with conspiracists that the virus is a psyop and a non-threat. The published research literature indicates that Wuhan's biolab was a hot spot for gain-of-function research in relation to bat viruses. There are, according to George Webb's research, eleven different bioweaponized strains of this virus (!), which were commissioned by several funding bodies. From PLOS Pathogens (30 November 2017; https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.ppat.1006698):
"Funding: This work was jointly funded by National Natural Science Foundation of China (81290341, 31621061) to ZLS, China Mega-Project for Infectious Disease (2014ZX10004001-003) to ZLS, Scientific and technological basis special project (2013FY113500) to YZZ and ZLS from the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, the Strategic Priority Research Program of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (XDPB0301) to ZLS, the National Institutes of Health (NIAID R01AI110964), the USAID Emerging Pandemic Threats (EPT) PREDICT program to PD and ZLS, CAS Pioneer Hundred Talents Program to JC, NRF-CRP grant (NRF-CRP10-2012-05) to LFW and WIV 'One-Three-Five' Strategic Program (WIV-135-TP1) to JC and ZLS."

Bioweapons research is a strategic reality that is not openly acknowledged by Great Power governments. Again, I post a recent documentary investigation into these projects (above), which are conducted under publicly legitimate auspices like vaccine research, but are cause for serious concern.

On a personal note, I was very ill with a strange flu from late January to late February, which prompted me to follow events in China closely. I know a number of people who were also ill with strange symptoms in the same time period. As I stated in an addendum to a previous post, on 20 March 2020, I saw a man who had collapsed, face down, in a nearby grocery story parking lot. There was something eerie about the way his body had fallen and I believe it was COVID19. Of course, he could have suffered from something else. The case was not reported in the local newspapers, although I called one of them. These events made me take the nCov warnings seriously.

However, it is equally difficult to ignore citizen journalists' reports from hospitals around North America that emergency rooms are empty. These accounts from citizens go on and on and on, enough that the CBC had to publish an article explaining the anomaly away on 26 March 2020.











This fact has led to a pushback from citizens against public health pronouncements, starting with humorous pokes at government officials, followed by public protests against lockdowns. In the case below, a Canadian comedian made fun of Health Minister Patty Hajdu. Following that, there were Canadian protests against lockdowns in Vancouver, marshalled by vlogger Dan Dicks.

Materialist Rhetoric: The Savage


Ariana Grande - 7 rings (2019). Video Source: Youtube.

This week, I am selecting words from the technosphere that reveal the materialist mindset, be it from scientists, technologists or capitalists. Today's word, from the last, is savage. The lyrics are below; this video version of Grande's My Favorite Things cover on Youtube has over 603 million views.

Ariana Grande, 7 Rings (released 1 February 2019)

Yeah, breakfast at Tiffany's and bottles of bubbles
Girls with tattoos who like getting in trouble
Lashes and diamonds, ATM machines
Buy myself all of my favorite things (yeah)
Been through some bad shit, I should be a sad bitch
Who woulda thought it'd turn me to a savage?
Rather be tied up with cuffs and not strings
Write my own checks like I write what I sing, yeah (yeah)
My wrist, stop watchin', my neck is flossin'
Make big deposits, my gloss is poppin'
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it

I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (yeah)
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (yeah)

Wearing a ring, but ain't gon' be no "Mrs."
Bought matching diamonds for six of my bitches
I'd rather spoil all my friends with my riches
Think retail therapy my new addiction
Whoever said money can't solve your problems
Must not have had enough money to solve 'em
They say, "Which one?" I say, "Nah, I want all of 'em"
Happiness is the same price as red-bottoms
My smile is beamin', my skin is gleamin'
The way it shine, I know you've seen it (you've seen it)
I bought a crib just for the closet
Both his and hers, I want it, I got it, yeah

I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it (baby)
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it (oh yeah)
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (yeah)

Yeah, my receipts, be lookin' like phone numbers
If it ain't money, then wrong number
Black card is my business card
The way it be settin' the tone for me
I don't mean to brag, but I be like, "Put it in the bag," yeah
When you see them racks, they stacked up like my ass, yeah
Shoot, go from the store to the booth
Make it all back in one loop, give me the loot
Never mind, I got the juice
Nothing but net when we shoot
Look at my neck, look at my jet
Ain't got enough money to pay me respect
Ain't no budget when I'm on the set
If I like it, then that's what I get, yeah

I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it (yeah)
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it (oh yeah, yeah)
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (yeah)
