Word from the Dark Side – arresting the unvaccinated, riling the sheep and robbed by a dildo

Swamp Thing by The Grid, 1994

Duterte orders local officials to hunt down and arrest unvaccinated people who leave their homes:

“I’m now giving order to the barangay captains to look for those persons who are not vaccinated and just request them — or order them if you may — to stay put. And if [they] refuse and go around the community, [they] can be restrained,” Duterte said in his address to the public Thursday night. “If [they] refuse, then the barangay captain, being a person in authority, is empowered now to arrest the recalcitrant persons.”

My sources confirm that in some parts of Manila, a vaccine certificate is being demanded to enter local markets to buy food.

I could write much more about present stupidities but what’s the point. Okay, just a taste: people who test positive are thrown into a quarantine facility (basically jail) for a month, where they are fed terrible food and refused treatment because all the government funds for those things are stolen. Thus, people who feel sick keep it quiet. I might know someone in that situation right now.

An excellent discussion about the way these manias can sweep the land without the need for an overarching conspiracy, though there may be self-interested sub-conspiracies within it:

There is a lot to learn from mistakes like these, but the biggest lesson is about the incredible rank-and-file inertia driving Corona containment policies: Hundreds of thousands of poorly informed dim people in the middle bureaucracy bought very hard into the propaganda they helped create, and they now believe that vaccines, not recovery, are the only solution to Corona; that SARS-2 is only weakly seasonal if at all and that infection waves are driven entirely by human behaviour; and that fomites are a significant transmission vector and masks will save you. There is no turning off or redirecting or adding nuance to a broadly distributed consensus like this, which just marches on and on, oblivious to everything.

Evidence in favour: recently, experts in Australian establishment media have been gently backpedalling on neverending vaxx mandates, mask rules, lockdowns and school closures. Taking that last article as an example, check the comments by ‘most respected’. People are still cacking their dacks.

Some authorities are waking up to the need to get back to normal but the terrified sheep don’t want to. This has taken on a life of its own.

Moving on. Remember those prison guards who allegedly fell asleep on the job when Epstein didn’t kill himself? Prosecutors have quietly dropped the case against them.

Millennials will help the US economy prosper for the next decade?!? I found this unconvincing on the face of it, but after writing a massive effort-post I saw there was some evidence in support.

A WiFi glitch caused me to lose the whole article. I may give it another go, but in the meantime please let me know your thoughts. Not ‘Millennials suck, lol,’ something more substantive. Compare the US population pyramid with other major economies before you leap.

A Guardian article by an Economist declares we can deal with inflation through price controls. True price controls have never been tried.

CRT in American schools is mostly forced on teachers in professional development, not forced by teachers onto students:

Do you have any idea how much crap we sit through as officially district- or school-sanctioned professional development? I’m  not surrounded by Republicans. My colleagues are solid blue Democrats, of varying levels of progressivism, in the bluest of blue regions, teachers in a Title I, extremely diverse school, and they nonetheless roll their eyes in resigned disgust at the ideology flung their way. If they’re listening at all. Teachers aren’t spending professional development time building critical race theory curriculum or strategizing ways to keep transgender kids’ intention from their parents. Most of the time they’re checking email, grading papers, or planning their next ten-week summer vacation, neener neener. 

Once again, my sources confirm.

    About millennials, I’m in my early fifties and one of the oldest people at my company. It also feels like I’m one of the dumbest, as pertains to writing code and getting complex things like continuous delivery of software to work consistently. I admire them for the their intelligence, work ethic, and ability to carve out a self-sufficient life for themselves in an economy with far less opportunity than what the boomers or my generation had at their age.
    It’s a double edged sword though, because in my few interactions with the more stereotypical commie-leaning whiny millennials and zoomers I do tend to point out that they can still make it even though the job market is unfair. How, they ask. Um…learn to code, I say. It doesn’t go over well.

      The Baby Boomer generational cut-off is 1964. If you are in your early 50s you’re not a Boomer, but a Gen X.

        I meant “or my generation” in the sense of gen x. Although to be fair, yougins lump us in with the boomers a lot.

    What’s especially crazy about the Phillipines crackdown is if you look at their daily deaths per 100k compared to the US over the past two years, it is tiny. They are not in a crisis. They are just convincing themselves they are. Even the US at it’s death rate is not in a crisis because of the WuFlu, but because of the response to the WuFlu.

      They have a very young population that is generally not at risk, but they seem incapable of changing direction now that they’ve started.

        Much younger and much thinner than the US. If this were really about public health in the US, you’d see the authorities encouraging people to lose weight.

      How much would it cost Pfizer et al. to buy enough Filipino politicians to get the mandates they want? I think we can be certain that that happened, because I can’t imagine any circumstances in which Big Pharma *wouldn’t* do that. The vaks-producing companies would probably get sued by their stockholders if they left so much easy money on the table.

      I think it’s silly to believe that all the world’s politicians went all-in on getting the population 100% vaksed at any cost because, umm, they all actually really care about their citizens’ health. Obviously, huge amounts of money and blackmail material have been exchanged behind the scenes to make these mandates so extreme. There may be a great deal of stupidity and groupthink involved as well, but any theory that says “There’s no conspiracy, it’s just a lot of decentralized dumb people doubling down on bad decisions” is wrong.

    “Teachers aren’t spending professional development time building critical race theory curriculum or strategizing ways to keep transgender kids’ intention from their parents.”
    I think the teachers are entirely complicit. My youngest was in public school for a while in middle school and she had a mandatory class titled “French Culture.” This in a rural Ohio River/Appalachian area with no French heritage population or history.
    When I started getting a look at her assignments in that class, it was all leftist indoctrination, stuff like Stereotype Threat. I never saw a single assignment that had anything to do with “French Culture.” I sure spent a lot of time deprogramming her from the stuff they were trying to teach her.
    The teacher may not have “wanted” to teach this stuff, but she did her job enthusiastically and without question, so what’s the difference?

      There’s usually one teacher in every school who’s right into it.

      Gallipolis in Southeastern Ohio was settled by those with French heritage.

        We’re not in Gallipolis. We got no French ancestors around here. The point is, if you look at the curriculum, it’s absolutely a fake and gay cover for progressive indoctrination. Heavens, I’d be *thrilled* if they were actually teaching French culture.

    Looks like I’m not going to the Philippines to meet women.
    “’m not surrounded by Republicans. My colleagues are solid blue Democrats, of varying levels of progressivism, in the bluest of blue regions, teachers in a Title I, extremely diverse school, and they nonetheless roll their eyes in resigned disgust..”
    Yet somehow none of you connected the dots. “We are all libs. Why is our working environment a hell hole?? Gee, I dunno. That’s a tough question. Too hard for me.”
    The power and persistence of brainwashing is truly amazing.
