“[People] want to go back to the way things were, but I know the truth. There’s no going back. You’ve changed things. Forever.”
The Joker’s speech might one day be hailed as prophecy. For more than just that one line.
People are, indeed, claiming they want to get back to the ‘old normal’ but that’s not possible now. Truth is, a lot of people didn’t actually like the old normal. Their lives were empty of meaning, the drudge of the daily grind was getting them down. And I can understand that even though I didn’t really experience it.
I was one of the lucky ones most of the time. Got a degree, worked in research, got another degree, ran my own research, was eventually made redundant, set up on my own with my own research/consultancy lab… and now retired with a fledgeling publishing business. Every job I had, including my four year stint as a janitor, was my choice. I enjoyed those jobs, I learned a lot (especially from the janitor job) and while none of them was ever going to make me rich, I feel like I had a good time in life.
Even the utterly skint times (none of my qualifications ever included any lessons on managing finances) weren’t so terrible, looking back, although sometimes it would be hard to convince my past self of that. Especially the ‘gap in the CV’ that I had to gloss over often. What the hell. I survived. I’m still here, still not rich and still filling in a tax return that I am confident won’t end up with me paying the wasters any money. I earn what I need and not a penny more. And my needs these days are few.
Things have changed. There can be no return to ‘old normal’. People have lost trust in so many things now. Including things I lost trust in a long time ago – but it’s been far, far worse the last few years.
I haven’t had more than a faint trust in politicians since I started paying attention to it. That was when Monochrome Man took over from the Iron Lady as the Prime Monster. Okay, she wasn’t perfect but he was bloody useless. Then the Blair Witch project got under way and things have gone downhill fast from there, and they are still going down. I do not see any return to trust in any political party within my lifetime.
I trusted science, hell, I was in it and thought it was about chasing knowledge. As my last boss said when he retired, “When I started we were chasing knowledge. Now we are just chasing money” and he was right. Nobody in charge of any research establishment gave a shit about knowledge by the time I took that redundancy package. It was all about how much money the project would bring. There was no interest at all in whether it was actually worth doing. To get the next money, your current project had to get the result the sponsor wanted. That was not what I signed up for.
That is not how science is supposed to work but in these days of extremely expensive machinery, science does need a lot of funding. And administrators and managers who know sod all about what they are administrating or managing need the latest Audis. To hell with real research, just get the money.
The same is true in the health service. Something I trusted right up until they cancelled my uncle’s cancer treatments that led to his death on Christmas Eve 2020. He didn’t die of Covid and he didn’t get any vaccine. He died of NHS neglect.
So many have died alone and neglected, their family forbidden to visit, because of a disease that it now turns out has killed fewer people than the annual flu. Now they are pushing ‘vaccines’ that do not do what real vaccines do because they are being paid to push them. To hell with actual health or patient care.
The result? People, like me, who were happy to get their kids vaccinated against measles, mumps, rubella, and a host of other things – some of which I had to go through as a child because there weren’t vaccines yet so I made sure my kids didn’t have to suffer them – are now questioning all vaccines. Not just these experimental mRNA gene therapy jabs. They are questioning – and refusing – long established vaccines against tetanus and polio and everything else. Well done, SAGE. Well done indeed. You have done so much better than simply ‘fail’, you have earned yourself a double fail with honours. You have destroyed all trust in the standard vaccines and in the entirety of the medical profession. And you did it all for a bit of fame and money. Are you proud? Are you just itching to tell your grandchildren what you did? Did you think anyone, anywhere, would see you as the good guys/
If I wore a wooden mask and rattled a gourd at you while chanting incomprehensible gibberish, you’d likely have as much trust in the result as if you went to a GP – if you can find one. Right at the start of this scam they all buggered off into Zoom diagnoses from their villas in Portugal and some of them still won’t see you unless you have taken a stab of the potion.
Tip: If your doctor won’t see you unless you’ve been jabbed, that doctor has no fucking clue about health and is best avoided forever. They are nothing more than Pharmer salesmen.
As are so many now. They are taught not to heal, but to treat. The Pharmers don’t want to cure anything. They want lifelong customers and they have pushed the medical profession in that direction. As in science, money is a powerful motivator for the suits in admin.
Trust in the police and the entire legal system is pretty much screwed too. I witnessed a car accident three years ago and had it on the dashcam. So I took the video to the police station – I had a front row view of what happened. I am now on my fourth call to court, it will be almost four years since it happened, it’s on video and I don’t know what they expect me to say. It just keeps being pushed back. I will never, ever, do this again.
The police have enforced not sitting on a bench in a park, they have enforced not having family and friends for a party unless MPs of all parties do it. They have ignored serious crimes to spend their efforts on all this and they think they are trusted? There is no going back.
Yes, I know there are good people in science, in medicine and in the police. There might even be one good person in Parliament although I doubt it. It seems like a long shot.
If there are, they are silent. They let the shouty idiots control what is happening and in their silence they are complicit.
Oh I know they are not all evil. There are still scientists who actually practice science. There are police who don’t waste time on bench sitters. There are doctors who see through the Covid scam. There are politicians who can’t be bought… well maybe I’m going too far with that one.
You’ve seen it now. The man behind the curtain. You can’t slink back into innocence. That ‘old normal’ is gone. Forever. You now know the news is fake, you know politicians lie, you know most science is bought and the police are obeying orders you never gave them.
There is no going back. There is only going forward. What will the fuure be like? Well, there are those who have decided what it willl be like.
Whether you accept it, well that’s up to you.
