Developments

I have been pretty tied up with the Spring anthology. It was a little short on pages – that wouldn’t stop publication but it would mean I couldn’t have the title on the spine. A small thing, I know, but this is the fourteenth and I do like consistency.

I was only around ten pages short. I thought about adding in some photos but meh, that’s obvious padding. In the end, Cade F.O.N Apollyon came to the rescue with an extra story and I found two of mine that had not appeared in previous anthologies. So it’s 140 pages.

All interiors are complete – print and eBook versions – so all that’s left is the cover. I had that all planned out too.

I have a candle in a ceramic skull, a gift from CStM (she knows what I like). The skull’s eyesockets are open and the candle is red. I think you can guess where this is going. Well, I’ve had the candle for a while and was waiting for the right time to light it – and the overall dark theme of this Spring anthology demanded it.

I had underestimated how big this candle really is. It’s going to take a few hours burning before the eyes leak. So that’s where we are – waiting for a candle to burn down to photographic levels.

This is a quick snap. It will of course be on a black backsheet but that’s flammable so I’ll have to watch it all the time. For now it’s safely progressing with nothing flammable around it. Once the eyes start to leak, I set up and start photographing. I hope to have the cover finished tomorrow and that’s really all I’m waiting for now. If I’d realised how long it would take I’d have lit it earlier!

Anyway, the book is complete, just waiting for a candle to burn and we’ll have a cover.

So, we are now to be terrified of the Indian variant of covid. Don’t be ridiculous. It’s running a corner shop or making T shirts somewhere. Seriously though, we are getting reports on absolute numbers, not ‘covid per million’ numbers. India has 1.4 billion people and thousands die every day of things like diarrhoea.

I’m not kidding. Giardia lamblia thrives in the warmer waters there and water purification isn’t a widespread thing. This thing turns your arse into Satan’s shitty power washer and you’ll find it hard to take in water faster than you’re pumping it out. And if your water supply is contaminated, taking in more just makes it worse. Really, for India, covid is having a very small extra effect on top of starvation and filthy water supplies and more.

The India strain is being hyped. It’s no more dangerous than any other and none of them have proved to be any more dangerous than the flu… which has vanished. This is now all about selling vaccines, which is what it has been about all along. Don’t imagine that the Pharmers care about you. They care about making money. Nothing else.

It has become increasingly difficult to find any reliable information on anything at all. There are people saying the mRNA vaccines will integrate into your DNA. This is not possible. It simply cannot happen. The DNA versions, well, maybe. I can’t find any data either way. The RNA ones, not a chance.

There are reports that the vaccinated are shedding spike protein. This is actually quite likely. When you exhale, your breath contains shed cells. If you have a virus, it contains virus particles. The spike protein is even smaller than the virus so if your body is making it then having it come out on your breath is almost guaranteed.

It’s not an intact virus. It can’t infect anyone but it seems (anecdotally) that it can have some effect on those around the vaccinated. At least for a while after vaccination. It’s being blamed for irregular periods in unvaccinated women and some effects in breast fed infants. My advice? Don’t risk it. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, wait until that’s over before considering the vaccine. The manufacturers have stated that they have not tested it on pregnant or breastfeeding women and don’t recommend they take it. Listen to them, not to the NHS who think they can stick this potion into anyone and it’ll be fine. The NHS is lost to the Land of Money and doesn’t care about anything else now. If it ever did.

Then we have the 5G thing. It’s still going. I don’t see how microwaves can affect an infection but I’m keeping an open mind for now. You never know. One thing I am sure of is that microwaves cannot initiate an infection. That requires an infectious agent and no EM radiation can conjure one out of the air. Whether it can trigger a dormant infection, well, I don’t know. There are other issues with short range powerful microwaves, but out here I won’t have to worry too much about those for a long time. We still have copper phone lines.

There is so much more conflicting information to deal with. Later, if I can make any sense of it.

For now, it’s not the vaccines that worry me so much. It’s the religious fervour surrounding them. I have never before been asked if I’ve taken any vaccine and have never asked anyone else. Now it’s like some kind of assimilation juice – if you haven’t had it you are not One Of Us. Well what about tuberculosis? Mumps? Polio? Any of the others? Nobody ever cared. Why now, for something no more dangerous than flu?

I know, if you had the vaccine, you’re happy with the vaccine passport. You think it will only apply to this one, right? You don’t think it will apply to flu or any of the far more dangerous diseases. Just covid. That’s the only one.

I need to publish this book fast. I have a story that tells you where it’s going.

I don’t think you’re going to like it.

Farm Animals

CStM’s choice of book in the previous post seems almost prophetic. The Vaccinators are all set to force the experimental vaccine on children… and then pets.

Found here

My bet is that all of these will need ‘booster shots’. Someone is getting very rich indeed out of all this, and they don’t care at all how the experiment turns out. Well, some have an interest in how it turns out, and they don’t have our best interests at heart.

My bet is that their next target will be livestock. Farm animals. For their protection? Hell no. For profit and for another reason.

Remember the big scare about growth hormones in beef cattle? Then mad cow disease? It put a lot of people off beef. How do you think they’ll react when they find out the experimental vaccine is now in every single piece of meat on every shelf, everywhere? Remember, one of the primary objectives of this insane ‘great reset’ is to stop meat-eating. All meat.

Of course, the vaccine in meat is meaningless. Every living cell contains DNA and mRNA (except red blood cells so black pudding is totally safe). Every one. All animals – and all plants too. Ever hear of anyone suddenly being able to photosynthesise after eating a salad? Of course not. Your digestive system breaks all that DNA and RNA into bits. Your cells can use the bits – the basic blocks are the same – to build its own RNA and DNA. It doesn’t use the genes, just the bits.

The same is true of proteins. These are broken up into amino acids and reassembled into proteins your own body needs. If you are on a low-carb diet, some of that protein is burned for energy too. Eating a sheep does not turn you into a sheep. The education system does that.

As an aside, eating fat doesn’t make you fat. Those fats are broken and mostly used for energy. The fats in your own cells are human fat, made in those cells, mostly from carbohydrates. You do not have a store of beef fat in you.

So I’m not going to be at all concerned about jabbed beef. If cooking doesn’t destroy the vaccine and its products, digestion will. I was never concerned about beef hormones for the same reason.

The mad cow disease was a bit more of a concern since the prions were shown to be heat resistant, but it turned out to be a very rare event with around ten cases a year. Still, all you had to do was avoid the main nervous tissue, brain and spine and although I have eaten cow brain in the past (being a broke student opens all kinds of interesting culinary options) I don’t need to eat that cheaply now. I still like liver though. Very good source of vitamin D and a very nice meal too.

If they can convince you that your pets have covid, it is a tiny step to convince you that farm animals have it. Then they can inject all the farm animals and once those side effects start to really get under way, many, many people will suddenly be too scared to eat meat.

There is a horrifying logic in this plan. It has to fail before they get to children, but then they are already running trials and have already ruined a few little lives before they really started. That won’t stop them. They don’t care.

The ‘vaccines’ are still experimental. They are still only allowed under emergency authorisation and that is in itself already illegal. Covid is not a highly lethal disease and there are effective treatments available. There is no need for these vaccines at all. The authorisation also only applies while there is an emergency. Stop the emergency and they can’t sell any more vaccines, and you know what that means.

Lockdowns are here to stay.

Curtains for Boris?

Well, while India is being used as the latest excuse for the new lockdowns the government have promised will never happen (just like the vaccine passports they promised would never happen), cases of Covid have pretty much petered out, lockdowns are killing more people than Covid and in Israel, heart issues among the vaccinated under 30s are killing more than the virus ever could, what’s the big news issue of the day?

Boris bought new curtains.

Yes, the Prime Monster had his flat redecorated. Apparently it cost several tens of thousands of pounds. Which is pocket change compared to the billions wasted on this pretend pandemic that could have been halted a year ago with ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Instead we have a permanent state of emergency to justify using unlicenced vaccines so a few evil bastards can swell their bank accounts.

There is really no point in getting rid of Boris. He’s not in charge of anything, he’s a puppet and if you oust him he’ll be replaced with a new puppet. Probably a worse one. Gove. Or Hancock. Imagine having one of those psychos in charge.

I don’t give a damn about Boris redecorating. I don’t even care if it was paid for by taxes (it seems it wasn’t, so it’s no issue at all). That redecorating job was as nothing compared to the damage done by lockdowns and the horrors to come.

Oh I don’t mean the vast backlog of untreated diseases the NHS has ignored for over a year. Nor even the plethora of other respiratory diseases caused by continuous mask wearing. No, I’m talking about things like this. This is where it’s heading now. Dehumanisation of the unvaccinated. If you’ve read any history at all you’ll know where that inevitably leads.

Do you remember seeing that with polio vaccine? Hepatitis vaccines? How about tuberculosis? Those were all proper vaccines. This new technology isn’t even preventing spread. It’s also turning the vaccinated into shedders. Yes, it’s now clear that the vaccinated are shedding spike protein and causing issues in the unvaccinated around them. It’s even in Pfizer’s trial notes. So if the vaccinated want to shun me, I’m fine with that.

How long will they be shedding? Nobody knows. Nobody has tested this. Or maybe they have, and have decided on a six month booster shot to keep the game going. I don’t know. I’d guess the mRNA ones won’t last long though. A month or so at most. The DNA ones could last longer.

I keep seeing this statement that the mRNA is tapping into the body’s ‘operating system’. This is because the whole mRNA thing was thought up by a computer geek. It’s not like MS-DOS. It’s more like a factory.

Right. You have the blueprints to make stuff in your factory but if you build on the blueprints directly, you’ll wear them out. So you make a photocopy of the original blueprint and build on that. It wears out, no problem, you can make another copy from the original.

DNA is the blueprint. mRNA is the photocopy. tRNA brings the parts for assembly. This is nothing like a computer operating system, you can’t just reprogam it – but you can hijack the assembly line. Which is what viruses do. It’s also what mRNA vaccines do. They send a fake photocopy to the factory floor. The factory doesn’t know it’s fake, they just follow the instructions.

The fake photocopy, like the genuine ones, will wear out after a few passes through the machinery. Then they’re gone. The DNA vaccines are adding a bit of fake ‘original blueprint’ to the system so it can churn out many more fake mRNA ‘photocopies’. It’s only limited by the stability of that extra DNA. It’s going to last a lot longer than the mRNA. I can’t at this stage even make a guess at how long it’ll be in there.

The vaccinated posing a risk to the unvaccinated is not new. It’s been shown with many other vaccines, including measles.The difference here is that those taking the coronavirus vaccine are not shedding live virus. Just the spike proteins – but that’s enough because the spike proteins are the part of the virus that causes most of the problems, like blood clots, heart issues and more.

More and more issues are coming to light over this now. It will clear itself in time because T cells in the blood will eventually kill all the cells producing the spike proteins, since to the immune system those cells appear to be infected. Then the booster shots will start it all off again.

Basically, it’s not safe for the unvaccinated to be around the vaccinated for at least a few weeks after they get their shots. So if the vaccinated want to shun us, good. We’re better off if they do.

There has also been talk recently of a vaccine that spreads by itself. I don’t think that will get anywhere, even if it works. Years ago, when I worked in probiotics for farm animals (treatments for gut infections in pigs) I suggested that the ideal probiotic would be one you’d feed to one pig, and it would spread through the whole herd.

Someone much more business-savvy than me pointed out that if I succeeded, a big feed company would buy my patent and put it in the back of a filing cabinet somewhere. It would never be used.

Why? Well, selling one dose to one pig on a farm makes no money. Selling a dose for every individual pig makes a fortune. Same with this self-propagating vaccine. If they succeed, the idea will end up at the back of a filing cabinet somewhere, filed under ‘ignore forever’.

Vaccine companies, all health companies, are businesses. They don’t care about you. They are in it for the money. Nothing else.

Keep that in mind and a lot of the weird stuff you see makes a lot more sense.

New kids in the needle

Last Friday was my father’s birthday. He would have been 83. It’s the first one he wasn’t there for and I suppose that’s the hardest one to get through so it’s been rather a gloomy weekend. I’m sure many of you have experienced the gloom this brings and if you haven’t yet… well it’s not going to be fun. He died on Valentine’s Day last year and I don’t think it’ll ever mean the same to me as it does to everyone else, ever again. But then my uncle, his brother, died on Christmas Eve so that’s screwed too. I wait with trepidation for Easter…

Anyway. These vaccines.

Decades of research have not come up with a single effective coronoavirus vaccine. Every one that has tried has hit ADE. Antibody dependent enhancement. It makes subsequent infection far worse. You can try searching for it but it’s been well buried now.

Within a year, we suddenly have a mass of profitable vaccines. And a game of supply that is designed to make you think there’s a shortage so you will demand one. The toilet paper thing was an effective proof of concept. If you think it’s going to run out you want it more. Even if you’d never even thought about it before. This is why SAGE is full of behavioural psychologists.

Another thing. I come up against people on Twitter convinced that all the vaccines are DNA-changers and all contain aborted foetus cells. I no longer engage. They will believe what they want to believe and I’m not wasting time arguing with them. They clearly are better versed in microbiology than a lifelong microbiologist so hey, I’m not getting involved.

None of the vaccines are DNA changers. That would require insertion of an enzyme called reverse transcriptase which is only found in retroviruses. Coronavirus is not one. So far I have not found any vaccine that uses attentuated coronaviruses, so nobody is getting injected with Covid as far as I can see. It’s either mRNA to make your cells produce spike protein, or another virus adapted to produce the spike protein, or just the spike protein in a fat ball. Not one of them injects Covid virus in any intact form.

As for the ‘aborted foetus cells’, well there might be some fragments in there. The only way to grow a virus for a vaccine is to grow it on human cells in cell culture. It will not – cannot – reproduce by itself. There are several ‘immortal’ human cell lines, mostly derived from cancers, that are used for this. It’s not Frankenstein science, it’s really the only way to grow a virus.

So. What do we have out there? The ones I really don’t like are the mRNA vaccines. This is entirely new and experimental technology and given that no successful coronavirus vaccine has ever happened, this is very dangerous meddling in my view. The only ones using this are the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. I don’t like either but I think I’d trust Pfizer over Moderna. Only because the latter is in the hands of the Billy Gates Gruff and I don’t trust that smug bastard any further than I could comfortably spit a rat.

AstraZeneca/Oxford. Yes, people have told me it’s a DNA changer but that’s bollocks. I no longer bother to correct them. This one uses an adenovirus (common cold) adapted to express the Covid spike protein. It does not make your body cells produce the protein, it already carries it. Your immune system will act on it directly. It cannot change your DNA. Really. It can’t.

The same is true of the new Novavax vaccine. They have used the unfortunate term ‘nanotechnology’ in their releases. They think it makes them sound very clever and don’t realise that everyone outside science thinks that ‘nanotechnology’ means tiny robots. They’ve had a diet of Star Trek Borg and/or Red Dwarf. They don’t realise it just means technology that’s working with sub-microscopic things.

The nanotechnology in the Novavax vaccine involves making really, really tiny fat globules with the Covid spike protein around them. So it looks just like the virus but there’s nothing inside. It isn’t going to infect anything. Is it safe? No idea. Time will tell and well, I won’t be indulging just yet. Still, it will not change your DNA and it will not take over your brain with little robots. Really. We do not yet have the technology to make the little robots. We really don’t. When we do, then things will get really scary. The way things are progressing, most people will demand to be assimilated first anyway.

Another one is made by Valneva and one more from Johnson and Johnson. My father once worked for the latter, making J-cloths. He borrowed my rubber joke hand and sent it through the rollers. It resulted in one of his co-workers having to go for a little lie down.He wasn’t fired for it, we had jokes in the old days. But I digress. As usual.

I have not yet found anything on the Valneva or Johnson vaccines. I don’t know how they are intended to work. Without that knowledge I won’t touch them. I suspect they are not mRNA vaccines but don’t know for sure yet.

Merck, one of the biggest players in the vaccination game, has given up on this one. They had two candidate vaccines but weren’t happy with the results. They’ve actually said the best protection is to suffer the virus and develop your own antibodies. That’s what used to happen with things like measles, mumps and chicken pox when I was a kid. Catch it, go through a few unpleasant weeks and then you have immunity. It was risky, measles especially can kill, but most of us got through it okay.

This won’t work for everyone. It really only works when you’re young and healthy and have no other conditions. For the elderly, or those with other illnesses already, it’s a very big risk indeed. However, if enough people develop immunity, the virus can’t spread any more so the vulnerable are protected. This is what’s called ‘herd immunity’ and no, it does not require a vaccine. If you have an effective vaccine you can get there faster but if you don’t then you need to keep away from the vulnerable ones until there’s enough immunity in the population to stop the spread.

It is now coming to light that hydroxychloroquine/zinc and ivermectin are indeed effective treatments for those who are in the early stages of infection, and are good as prophylactics too. Most of us knew this from the outset and have been daily dosing with vit C and D, zinc and quercetin (easier to get than hydroxychloroquine, not quite as good but it works) since the whole shitshow hit the road. Some are saying these treatments were quashed because Trump mentioned them (I don’t recall him mentioning ivermectin) but I think it was because of the vaccines. If you have a cheap and effective treatment for a disease then you don’t need a vaccine. And there is an awful lot of money involved here.

When you get this level of lunacy it’s either about money or ideology. This time it’s more lunatic than usual because it’s both. And more.

The vaccine makers make money. Can’t be surprised at that, the Pharmers are businesses. It’s their primary objective. Then we have the ideologies – more than one at work here. The Klaus Schwab great reset to take total control of everyone, the Church of Climatology who want us all in mud huts burning cow shit for heat and eating turnips, The Tiny Blur project for world domination, the One World Government… heck, add your own. So many of them are delighting in the sheeple’s easy subjugation. None of these are conspiracy theories any more. They are all quite open about it.

And then… the experiments. The mRNA vaccines are an experiment. Any Coronavirus vaccine is an experiment. They have never worked before. More than that, the behavioural experiment. How far are you willing to be controlled? Will you accept the lunacy of wearing two masks? If you do, it’ll soon be three. Are you willing to have a Q-tip shoved up your arse to see if your lungs are infected? Get an anatomy book and see how long that Q-tip is going to have to be. How far can the insanity go before you say ‘Hey – hang on a minute’?

Quite a lot further, I suspect. I mean, I speak as the guy who convinced an antismoker that all grey dust was cigarette ash. We’ve had smoking in the UK for 400 years and ASH has said that the residue never degrades so… that was easy.

It *is* easy. Very easy to scare people. Idiots in government and ‘public health’ make it easier still. I do it for fun but so many do it for pure profit. The mask industry has boomed, it’ll boom even more if you wear two at a time. Especially if they are single use. Believe me, the mask makers are having a great time now. They don’t want this to end.

So now you cannot leave the country without a valid reason. ‘Just because I want to’ only works if you’re rich. You are a prisoner of the nation state. The solution you will be offered is the abolition of the nation state. No more borders. Enough of these restrictions and you’ll vote for it.

No borders mean no need for passports. So… how will they keep track of where you’re going? Well, you know the ‘conspiracy theory’ Covid passports that are now in production? That’s just the beginning. Once mandated medication is accepted for one thing it won’t stop there, or ever. You will need to prove vaccination when you travel.

If you are not up to date with the mandated medications, you’re going nowhere.

Show the Mark

There has been much brushing off of Covid ‘passports’ as merely more tinhat foilery. Yet, in Australia, Quantas have already declared you are not getting on their planes without proof of vaccination. To their rare credit, Ryanair will impose no such restriction. So far.

In America, Dr. Faust has insisted that mandatory vaccination for travel is not off the table. The UK government has said it has no plans for a Covid passport but has commissioned two pilot schemes to see how it could work. Quite a few companies, worldwide, are going to demand proof of vaccination as a condition of employment. Others are not making it compulsory but offering bonuses to those who accept it.

There is a really hard push to implement this. Why? Money, mostly.

This is the equivalent of ‘we just want a nonsmoking area in restaurants’. It’s the foot in the door. You know, surely, that mandatory medication will not be just this one vaccine, right?

It isn’t going to stop there. The first thing you will notice about your shiny new Covid passport is that it has multiple blank pages where the next vaccine, the next medication, the next drug you need to be ‘safe to travel’ can be stamped in. Oh, it’s ‘for the safety of other people’ now. This is no different to the old ‘for the cheeldren’ mantra. It’s bollocks. If the vaccine works you can’t catch the disease even if nobody else is vaccinated. Any other response means you know the vaccine doesn’t work – so why did you get it?

This virus is less deadly than flu and far, far less deadly than measles and many other diseases. So why compulsory vaccination just for this one? It’s that foot in the door. You accept compulsory vaccination for this one, and next thing you hear is ‘Oh but this and this and this are even more dangerous, you have to be compulsory vaccinated against them too. And you need blood pressure control and sugar level control and cholesterol control and…” The list will never end.

New Scientist spotted this several decades ago. There is no money in curing disease. There is endless money in treating disease. Type 2 diabetes? Lose weight, change your diet, it’ll go away as long as you haven’t completely wrecked your pancreas. Type 1 doesn’t, I’m afraid. You’re born with that one. Ah but it’s so much better to live on your preferred pizza and chocolate diet and also take these pills. High blood pressure? Stop watching the news for a start. That’ll help. Ah, but you can flob out in front of the TV with a beer and some pills. Keep watching TV. Keep taking the pills. Watch the profits roll in. Watch the greenbacks tumble.

People imagine that pharmaceutical companies are there to help them. No. They are not. They are there to make money. That is their only goal. You are the ones they make money from, but if they cure you, the money stops flowing.

It is the dream of every pharmer that you will be forced to take their product forever. Sounds bad?

Well, what if McDonald’s or Coca-Cola could persuade government that you had to have at least one Crappy Meal or glass of chemical fizz every day or you won’t be allowed to get on a train? Do you think they’d turn that opportunity down? Of course it won’t happen, they can’t claim any medicinal benefit but if they could…

…then they’d be Pharmers. Feeling ill? We have a treatment for that. You’ll have to take it forever but it will improve your life (note that in some cases of chronic illness this is true). Nowadays it’s ‘Not feeling ill? We have a test to see if you are,’ and so many dopey fuckers have fallen for it. Pharmer boardroom cleaners must be sick of cleaning laughter piss off chairs. How the hell did non-sick people get convinced they have to be tested for something when they’re not sick at all?

It was the ‘asymptomatic spread’ which has now been repeatedly shown to be not a thing at all. The ‘masks protect others from you’ when they actually achieve nothing and even if they did, if you don’t feel ill you aren’t spreading anything. If you are ill with a virus the mask won’t stop it anyway.

People are now demanding a vaccine that the makers say won’t stop them getting the disease, won’t stop them spreading it, but might make their experience a little less uncomfortable.

I have been vaccinated against tetanus, polio, so many other things. They all promise a good chance of me not getting the disease at all and if I do, it’ll be trivial. They promise I won’t be spreading it. The only exception was rabies vaccine which only promised it would give me enough time to get to a hospital. Since rabies makes Covid look like a bit of a sniffle, I took those odds.

Now, Pharmers are immune to prosecution in a way you could only hope to be from any disease. They don’t care if it’s safe. They don’t care if it kills more of you than the disease it’s supposed to prevent. Neither do their shareholders. It’s not going to cost them anything if the vaccine for a 99% survivable virus has a 99% kill rate. Not. One. Penny.

Do not imagine that the business of pharmacology cares about your health. They care about money. Nothing else. You are going to need the Mark of the Beast to do anything soon, the proof that you have taken the Pharmer dose of this week’s drug.

You are of course free to scoff and ignore me, and I genuinely hope you are right to do so.

But you aren’t.

I haven’t run a competition for ages. There is a line in an old song in there. Band and song name, year for a bonus mystery gift. If you find it I’ll send you three books of your choice from Leg Iron Books.

I don’t think it’s going to work.

I may go out tomorrow if I can borrow a face to wear.

Oh I’ll step out in style with my plastic smile and unbarbered hair

It’s a very old song. I think it is one of my earliest memories of a song, aside fom all that Lonnie Donegan stuff my mother liked. I only have a few Leg Iron Books mugs here currently but there’s one up for grabs if you can tell me who sang it and what it was originally called (it wasn’t Lonnie Donegan).

Meanwhile, two new faces arrived today, to add to my Hall of Faces.

The Saw mask will need a bit of cloth taped over the inside of the mouth, the sugar skull is already sealed so they will both be legitimate Covid masks since they cover my nose and mouth. Shops aren’t allowed to make me take them off but just in case they demand it, I can wear one over the other.

I’m quite enjoying this subjugation. You want me to wear a mask? Sure, I’ll wear a mask. I am amassing quite a collection. I’m happy to become a Faceless Man. Good luck with that facial recognition stuff you paid millions for. I can go around a corner and have a different face now. And I am obliged to cover my face by law (there are those who have said covering my particular face should have been law long ago) so you can’t make me take it off or I’ll infect you with… whatever you are currently scared of.

This virus has receded. It’ll come back in the next winter, the Wonder Winter in which nobody will die of flu for the first time in recorded history. You can be sure of that.

This New World Order, this population reduction to five hundred million people worldwide, is not going to work. We have around seven billion people on Earth and there are still places humans have never visited. Still new species to discover. I’m not talking about the bottom of the sea, I’m talking about on land. Huge tracts where no human eye has ever set foot. The planet isn’t overpopulated, it’s just being managed by idiots.

Okay. To get down to 500 million people you have to kill six and a half billion people. How? The military? How long before some grunt is pointing his euthanasia rifle at his grandma? Will he fire?

Sure, you take the military from country A into country B and let them loose. Meanwhile the military from country B is killing everyone in country A. This works until both militaries hear about what’s happening to their families at home. Then they want to go home to defend their own country.

I have seen the bleeding hearts bang on about deforestation in the Amazon while insisting we all go vegan. They say nothing about the deforestation to install wind farms and solar panels. Hey, you want everyone vegan? You’re going to have to deforest the whole damn planet to grow enough crops for that. Some places can only grow grass, which ruminants (cows and sheep) can eat but you can’t. What will you do with those places? Oh and, incidentally, what do you think happens to all the animals you think you’re protecting? What do you think happens to the wildlife that eats some of those crops?

The population reduction proposed means that out of every 14 people, 13 must be killed. Look in the mirror and ask yourself, are you the one they’ll save? I know they won’t want me. How many soldiers, how many police, will they really need when there’s a small subservient population? If you are a soldier or police now, are you to be saved or are you just a little bit lower down the list, once you’ve done your job? 13 out of 14 will die. Are you number 1 or number 12? Where are your family on that list? Where is your father? Your brother or sister? Your children? Are you the one who will be ordered to depopulate them? Will you do it?

How long before that realisation kicks in? I mean I know it worked in Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia and China and Cambodia and North Korea but applying that globally is a very different game. Especially when you are dealing with countries, such as Poland, who have experienced this same shit in living memory.

Suppose they succeded. 500 million. About a thousand of them own all the wealth on the planet. What will they buy? Who is making anything? Why would their drones bother if they are not going to be adequately compensated? Who is making ornate furniture when they get the same pittance for banging a few planks together? If you are a drone with no hope of advancement, why try?

Soviet Russia found this out. So, to a lesser extent so far, has China. Basically, if you eradicate all capitalism you eradicate all motivation. If you cannot possibly advance from where you are now, there is no point trying. No point making anything unique or beautiful when you get paid the same as someone who bangs rough hewn planks into something vaguely chair shaped.

All those billions of dollars will be worthless when there is nothing to buy. Where are your fine wines, when a homebrewer using baker’s yeast and some strawberries gets the same pay? Where is your gold when digging out iron pyrites gets the same pay? What use are your diamonds when nobody else even knows they exist? Where do you get your fine clothes when all anyone bothers to make is sackcloth?

There will be rebellion. It’s human nature and to paraphrase the Joker: ‘You have nothing. Nothing to threaten us with. Nothing to do with all your money’. Money will become an irrelevance when nobody can earn more than the absolute basics. The billionaires have nothing to buy. Oh but they can buy people? How? There is nothing for the bribed ones to buy either. This game makes money entirely pointless.

Oh they”ll go back to slavery, we’ll be picking cotton and other crops, but what will they do with it? Who will they sell it to? When most of the population is gone, who are your trading partners?

When there is no more money, many of us will become hunter-gatherers. We can’t get into the system if we don’t accept control and those who accept control will die out. Gobleki Tepe started me wondering if this has happened before. Maybe they didn’t transition from hunter-gatherers to advanced stonemasons. Maybe it was the other way around. If you’re a skilled stonemason suddenly getting paid the same as someone who bangs rocks together, what would you do?

This New World Order is a massive failure in the making. I wonder how many times it’s happened before. It is happening again.

They never learn.

Street battles

Well, just to add to the delays, our water supply shut down last night. It happens once in a while, the pipe from the well gets an airlock which has to be cleared. The pipe delivers water by gravity feed to a large storage tank in the house and then it’s pumped through filters and UV treated. If the pressure in the tank drops too far the pump can’t operate. Since it happens about once a year we always have reserve water to hand.

It’s fixed now, and it shows one of the benefits of renting. If I bought this house I’d have had to pay Sunday rates for someone to come and fix it. Fortunately the landlord is well versed in the mechanics of this system so was able to repair it quickly.

Right, I am behind with editing and still have to put those novel prices up. It’s complicated by Amazon’s web crawlers which, if they find the book cheaper anywhere else, will flag it up and possibly get it withdrawn from the Amazon site. So they all have to be changed on Smashwords first, let those prices filter through to the outlets they distribute through and then change the Amazon prices.

In case I was feeling a shortage of distractions, the internet is full of stories about the ‘riots’ in London and elsewhere. They aren’t really all that big as riots go, nothing like the Tottenham ones a few years back. Still, people have been getting hurt at them.

It is all starting to look like a clumsily engineered plan of sorts. Last weekend, BLM and Antifa were allowed to vandalise a lot of things and the police pretty much gave them free rein. In Bristol, police stood back and watched as the mob pulled down a statue of someone nobody outside Bristol has heard of and dumped it in the harbour.

This triggered a nationwide demand for statue-smashing. In response, London sealed Winston Churchill in a box.

Yes, really. He doesn’t even have a window.

You see, all of a sudden, Winston Churchill is a Very Bad Man. I’m sure the Wehrmacht thought so too. However, our side thought he did rather well. We did end up winning that war, although it is increasingly starting to look like we needn’t have bothered.

Google even removed his picture, as well as any reference to the period 1940-1945, from their search results for British Prime Monsters. He also no longer appears on a list of world leaders in that war, although Hitler and Stalin are still there. Google likes them, apparently.

Statue smashing is not a new sport. Americans have been playing that game for some time. It’s new to the UK and… well sir, we don’t like it. Okay, I’ll admit to having paid scant regard to statues and monuments, other than Cenotaphs, throughout my life, but a lot of people like them and even a Philistine like me doesn’t want them smashed. They are, for better or worse, part of our history, and once you delete history, what is left? Pol Pot’s ‘year zero’, that’s what.

Those hippie squatters in Seattle’s breakaway state of Soymalia, aka Chaz, seem to be practicing for just that. Although they are really going to have to improve their farming techniques. They might also want to consider what a Seattle winter can be like. Tents are going to be a tough call in December over there.

But I digress.

Last week it was all BLM and Antifa and most of it was just people marching around with signs on sticks. They were protesting about the brutal actions of a policeman in America and many have now been led to believe that the same things happen in the UK. The rowdy element was allowed to have a little tantrum and threaten a lot of monuments and pretend that they have only just been freed from slavery.

There are a lot of bona-fide slaves in East Africa and around the Middle East right now who would trade places with them in a heartbeat, but the protestors don’t care about them. The rowdy element don’t even care what the protest was really about. They have their own agenda which they were allowed to get away with.

Was there a reason? The BBC and Sky and the Scale Model Mayor all lauded the protest as mostly peaceful. I doubt the injured police would agree, and neither would those who had to clean off the graffiti afterwards. Emboldened by their consequence-free tantrum, the rowdies drew up a list of statues they wanted destroyed, some tenuous link to past crimes was devised (usually slavery even though they targeted abolitionists too) and bragged they were out to smash them all.

The Scale Model Mayor of London joined in with this. He thinks all the old statues should be replaced with new ones to reflect London’s diversity. If he suggests one of Mohammed, the resulting collective sharp intake of breath would suck all the air out of the city. So, History and its tangible residue, the statues, are under threat. A few token ones were removed to rile the public and move to the next stage.

What happened next was entirely predictable and, I suspect, exactly what was supposed to happen. A load of enraged people went to London to defend the cenotaph and the statues. All of these people, including many military veterans, were labelled ‘far right’ and ‘football hooligans’ determined to ‘stop legitimate protest’ because they are ‘racist Nazi bigots’.

What has been glossed over is that these ‘far right’ people did not come to attack the BLM marches. They did not come because they are racists who despise black people. They did not come to tear down the notion that Black Lives Matter.

They came to defend the statues and monuments. That’s their only motive. Having seen the police back off, run away, bend the knee and generally let this toddler tantrum escalate out of control, of course they decided to defend the statues themselves. Any idiot, even Khan, saw this coming.

Tommy Robinson (NHRN) saw it coming. He declined to attend. He saw the jaws of the trap and decided not to walk into them. I have to admit, that’s a smarter move than I expected from him, but thumbs up for seeing his opponent’s next move. He’s getting the hang of the game, I think.

So, last week the police were in shirtsleeves, no armour, no helmets, no protection at all. Around 30 were injured (numbers vary), some seriously, in that ‘mostly peaceful’ event.

This week they arrived in full riot gear. Six were injured. The BBC, Sky, and Mini-Mayor described it as ‘carnage’. These far right thugs spoiled their toddler-tantrum fun!

It was set up. They tried the same thing in Glasgow with predictable results. Glasgow turned out in force and the rowdies ran away. Antifa have also threatened to invade Milwall. Good luck with that one. If we ever have nuclear war and run out of bombs, then we will escalate it and send Milwall fans over. I suspect Antifa are all talk on that one.

Why are the police standing back from the Rowdies of Antifa and the militant wing of BLM? They’ve been told to. The same is true in America. Seattle police are not allowed to enter the Soapless Zone, not because the inmates demand it, but because their mayor will not allow it. There are Hell’s Angels and others on the way. I bet the police will be told to stop them, and I’m sure I know which lot the police would rather deal with.

Meanwhile, politicians everywhere insist we stay home, don’t meet even family members, we cannot see dying relatives, we cannot attend funerals or weddings, now we have to wear masks on public transport (well those of you who actually have access to public transport).

Every other toilet is taped off, bus seats are taped off, you have to stay two metres apart and Boris’s ‘experts’ are threatening to resign if he relaxes that rule.

At the same time, mass protests are allowed. No ‘social distancing’. No control at all. You can forget contact tracing. That’s right out of the window now.

The virus was dying out. Scientists were afraid it might disappear before the highly profitable vaccine was ready. It needed another surge.

Brexit is happening. The government have refused to extend it any more. Remain need chaos, pain, suffering, a reason to make an extension inevitable.

The Marxists want to bring down government and delete history. This is the perfect opportunity.

All of this is happening at once. Every faction sees their chance. Every player in their own particular game sees advantage in this. Every maniac is let loose, every scheme for profit, power and gain is running at full tilt now.

Sometimes, two and two really do equal four.

On Kafka’s furrowed brow

Kafka could not have written this reality. Even he would shake his head in confusion at this.

Boris is still reciting his mantra of ‘you can visit family as long as you only meet in the garden and stay six feet apart and you can’t use the toilet in the house’ while thousands of protestors mob city centres all over the world. From the 15th June we are all to wear masks on public transport, which won’t affect me at all since we don’t have any of that around here. It will have no meaningful effect on anyone else either. Meanwhile tens of thousands have travelled all over the country to attend protests, pick up a viral souvenir and take it home.

In Scotland, the Chief Goblin of the Spiteful Nannying Party has declared we can’t travel more than five miles. Well, sod that. A five mile radius around me is farms and fields, the nearest supermarket is 15 miles, even the nearest pharmacy is 7 miles and the doctor’s surgery is another five miles further on. A five mile radius might get you everything you want in Glasgow or Edinburgh but out here it gets you farms and fields.

Boris has a new trick too. He wants to boost the Green God’s new Church of Climatology. Well, Boris, it is now the sixth of June. Two weeks to midsummer’s day. It is currently 7 degC outside and in the daytime tomorrow it is forecast to reach the giddy heights of 12 degC. This, you tousle-haired arse impressionist, is not warming. Twenty years ago I’d have had every window open by now.

I thought Boris or at least his carer, Demonic Cummings, had some sense. This new obeisance to the Green God has blown that out of the water. The sun is dimming, it’s at the bottom of three cycles at the same time. It’s getting colder. Shutting down your power stations and replacing them with shiny suncatchers and spinning lawn ornaments is exactly the wrong thing to do now. You want to cut emissions without killing large swathes of the population? Nuclear is the way. Lots of small plants rather than a few big ones. Small ones have less risk of meltdown and if one does go wrong, it wouldn’t contaminate the entire country and while it’s closed, the rest of the stations can take up the slack.

Chopping down every CO2-absorbing tree and replacing them with concrete and steel and fibreglass blades and toxic waste is suicide. You won’t be able to power anything at all on a windless night.

Then there is the alleged vaccine for the new Flu Manchu. Well, scientists are concerned…

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Scientists are worried that the virus might disappear before they have a vaccine for it. This, apparently, is bad news. Really. It’s only bad news if you were expecting to make a fortune from a vaccine that nobody now needs. It’s also bad news for those who delight in ultimate control of the population (yes, Wee Nippy, I’m looking at you). For the rest of us, it’s good news.

Flu Manchu is dying, but the restrictions are increasing. The rioting over a career criminal being killed by a dirty cop is on the wane. Only the daftest of the Woke are now kneeling, their replacement displacement activity from clapping on their doorsteps, and it’s time for something new.

Or, perhaps, the resurgence of an already established fearmongering scam.

Yes, we are back to the imaginary ‘global warming’. It’ll do, until the Chinese release another virus.

Hunger strikes and internet

The final round of visitors for the year have left. Nobody else is likely to want to visit now – it’s cold and wet and it’s dark by 4 pm. We’ve had our first icy patches, a taste of the coming winter, and the days have not yet finished shortening. Peace at last. Just to be sure, I will be circulating rumours about demons prowling the grounds in winter.

My mother has suggested we turn this place into a bed and breakfast. We’ve had a taste of what that would be like this year and it’s an absolute ‘no’ from both of us. See, neither of us actually like people very much and we don’t like getting up early. We don’t like the extra laundry generated by rapid changes of bedding and possibly most important of all, we only have one bathroom.

Add to that the absence of heating in the upstairs rooms and it would take some serious building work to make this place habitable for more than just a few people.

Anyway, the visits are over until at least late March, when the weather usually starts to become a bit less horrible, and that means lots of writing and publishing. I have a short story collection by the somewhat eccentric Gastradamus and editing is under way on the submissions so far received for the Christmas anthology. It’s going to be a big one and submissions are still open.

I have been trying to catch up with the news. Apparently Donnie Trumpton is now to be impeached because of something to do with Ukraine, but I can’t pay too much attention to other countries’ politics. Ours is in such a shambles it’s all anyone can do to keep up with it all.

Boris the Spider has promised to restore 5000 miles of railway and all the stations associated with it for 500 million shiny British pounds. We’ve all had a laugh at Diane Abbot’s flimsy grasp of real life costs, but Boris seems to be no better. 500 million would lay about a mile of track after they’ve paid for and demolished all the buildings that now exist on the old track beds. Most of the old bridges are gone, the ones left won’t be safe after half a century of neglect, and many of the tunnels have been filled in. 500 million? Hahaha.

The Keith and Dufftown Railway is a privately owned preserved line. It runs from the old Keith Town station, through a couple of wayside halts, to the old Dufftown station. It’s a favourite trip for me because it runs the old diesel multiple units I loved travelling on in the Welsh Valleys – the ones where you can sit right behind the driver and get a view through the front window.

Also because Keith is the home of Chivas Regal’s distillery and Dufftown has the Glenfiddich and Balvenie distilleries. It’s where the exceptionally smooth Singleton of Dufftown comes from. If you like ancient buildings, the ruin of Balvenie castle is also worth a visit. It’s very close to Glenfiddich’s distillery.

Now, just for once, there is a point to this digression. The old Keith Town station, now privately owned, is not too far from the main Keith station that is still operated as part of the national network. There is no longer any track between them, but the track bed is intact. The private railway would dearly love to reconnect to the main line but it costs far too much. If they could do it they would be able to provide the distilleries in Dufftown with a rail link to the main line. Yeah, there would be considerable profit, allowing the private line to actually pay the volunteers who run it now, and it would also reduce the numbers of huge trucks leaving those really big distilleries to transport whisky along the terrible roads in the area.

Boris, that might be a good place to start.

Jerry Cordite has promised free broadband for all. Yeah, right. We are still on copper-wire phone lines on posts out here. I don’t think he’s costed the more remote areas, you know. I actually get faster internet using the phone on 4G as a hotspot – but that only works in the right parts of this place because mobile reception is shit too.

Besides, as several commenters on Twitter have pointed out, if you’re going to make something free, why not water? Or electricity or gas? You know, stuff everyone needs. Not everyone uses the internet, even now, yet everyone will have to pay outrageous taxes so Jerry can give out his freebies. The taxes wouldn’t seem quite so bad if they were covering something as basic as a reliable water supply.

Ah, but it’s not really about free broadband. You’ll never see that. The first stage in making the internet ‘free’ is, of course, for government to take total control of it. Then they won’t make it ‘free’ in any sense. The government once owned British Telecom, the railways and the postal service. Was any of that ever free? Once they own something, they profit from it. You pay the costs, they take the profit. That’s socialism.

The internet under government control will be censored, monitored, and, as has just happened in Iran, switched off when the population cause the government problems.

Don’t imagine the Tories are any different. Tessie Maybe salivated at the prospect of internet control for many years, and tried to get it more than once. Government control of the internet is a terrible idea, no matter who is in charge.

I see Extinction Rebellion have rebranded as Election Rebellion, which is no surprise. They were always obviously communists using any pretext to force their ridiculous and deadly world view on us all.

They are now going on hunger strike for a week for some reason or other, I don’t know what they hope to achieve and don’t care. A week? They’ll be in Pret as soon as the sun goes down on day one. They cannot go 24 hours without their avocado toast and gingerbread lattes.

A week. I am singularly unimpressed. Muslims do this every year and they do it for a month. So the feeble watermelon warriors are going to try it for a week, once, and I bet not a single one of them makes it to Wednesday.

I once co-supervised an Indonesian student through his M.Sc. Brilliant guy, we ended up with a very good paper on ruminant microbiology from his eight weeks with us. Needless to say, he passed easily.

He was Muslim. This was back in the 1990s when we weren’t assailed with Islam this and Islam that from all sides. We thought nothing of it. He was a devout Muslim but he never mentioned it. Never tried to convert anyone. Never threatened anyone. Never demanded a prayer room or any kind of special treatment. His religion was personal to him, as it should be. And he was a very nice guy in general.

It was Ramadan, in June, in Scotland. The sun was up before 5 am and still there at 10 pm. He wasn’t eating or drinking anything during daylight hours. The poor bugger nearly passed out before we figured this out. And yet he produced work of a quality good enough to publish. While slowly starving to death.

The Watermelon Warriors, the ones who haven’t given up by Tuesday, will, on Wednesday, be on Twatter and Farcebok telling the world how they are suffering for their cause. I’ll tweet them pictures of plates piled high with food to help them cope.

Still, I suppose they’ll be well practiced for their dreamed-of Socialist future under Corbyn.

Then they’ll finally find out what ‘hunger’ really means.

Money

One of my favourite Pink Floyd songs ever.

I’m told there is an issue with commenting here, apparently Google and WordPress are each calling the other invalid. Best guess: one of them updated and ballsed something up. That’s usually the reason. Hopefully it’ll be fixed soon.

Anyway. Money. My favourite quote on the subject came fom an Andy Capp cartoon many, many years ago. Flo returns home from shopping and says ‘It’s frightening how the pound’s going down in value’. Andy responds: ‘Well it’s a good thing we don’t have many of them then, isn’t it?”

It’s pretty much how I’ve always felt about it. This feeling has only been increased by finding out about fractional reserve banking and how most money is simply created by typing numbers on a screen. I don’t need very much money. In fact, I need other people to have cash to spare because I’m always trying to sell something. If other people have no money, they can’t buy from me.

In the past I sold my knowledge as a microbiologist. I’ve retired from that now, not least because science has, by and large, become really quite silly. Food, drink, smoking, climate, and now vaping – it’s clear they are just making shit up. Not even very convincingly, I was more convincing when I explained the lack of roundabouts in America in terms of Roman invasion. This reflects on science as a whole so nobody trusts science any more. Maybe that was the plan.

These days I sell books. Mine and other peoples’ too. If there was nobody out there with disposable income, nobody would buy them. It’s tough enough now – I really don’t want other people to be poor!

Jerry Cordite has declared that there are 150 billionaires in the UK. There won’t be if he gets elected, they’ll be packed up and ready to go just in case. Can he stop them moving money? Hardly. It only takes a few keypresses these days and it’s moved to the other side of the planet. Billionaires don’t even need to book flights. They own planes. And yachts the size of cruise liners.

He also says there are 14 million in poverty. Poverty is when you have no shoes and you ride out the winter under a bridge dressed in rags. The New Poverty is where your iPhone is last year’s model and you can’t afford the latest Reeboks. There are real poverty-stricken people living on the streets but not 14 million of them. Thanks to the Green Agenda, this winter will reduce the real number significantly, as well as clearing out many of those over-70s who are too smart to vote Labour.

So Jerry thinks a fair country would have no billionaires and everyone is equal in the bread queue. Who the hell does he think owns the factories and other businesses that employ so many people and produce all that stuff? When he flushes out the billionaires, they take their business with them. There won’t be any bread at the end of that queue. Nobody is employing anyone to bake it.

I don’t care that other people are billionaires. I’ll never be one, I don’t want to work that hard and I certainly don’t want to employ other people. Not now that the Entitled Generation is looking for work where they expect to get paid for looking cool on Facebook and playing online games. I don’t want a yacht, I don’t need a Lear jet, I have no interest in owning a football team, I just need enough to pay the bills and have some left over for baccy and booze. Oh and toy trains.

In my almost-60 years I have paid higher rate income tax twice, both times on redundancy payouts. I will not work to reach the level of working for half pay. What’s the point? A huge house? The one we rent now is too big really, there are five rooms used only for storage of accumulated junk (must get around to clearing that out) and there is a vast attic we haven’t used at all. Cleaning it is a nightmare, you knock down cobwebs at one end of the house and by the time you get to the other end, the spiders have rebuilt the first ones.

How about a fancy car? Well I have a 2005 Toyota, it starts every time, it’s cheap for servicing and parts, and I don’t care if you drop a sandwich in it. I really do not want a car that I have to worry about, that I would have to maintain like a living room and which is worth more than most houses. Besides, those low slung things would lose their exhaust on the way up this driveway.

I never understood why millionaires have cars at all. Why bother? With that much money I’d just call someone and have the stuff delivered. I don’t need to go there myself. And I could take taxis to and from the pub. I’d never sober up again.

The whole world is obsessed with money. Most of which doesn’t actually exist. Everything is about money. It’s the biggest social construct of all and everyone acts as though it’s the only aim of life.

In one of the Batman films, the one with Heath Ledger as Joker, Alfred tells Batman that ‘Some men don’t care about money. Some men just want to watch the world burn’. The two things are not connected. I don’t care about money beyond having enough to live on but I don’t want to destroy things. I just want to be left alone.

The obsession with money is the downfall of all the political parties. It ‘costs the Treasury’. No it doesn’t. The Treasury takes in other people’s money. It isn’t a ‘cost’ if it takes a bit less. It ‘costs the NHS’. Well we’re all paying for it so it costs the NHS nothing. It costs us – and we’ve already paid.

All these policies, all these manifestos, are all about money. It’s not even real! It’s an agreed means of transfer, so a carpenter doesn’t have to build a chair a day to pay his rent. He can swap the chair for money and pay his rent with that. Since rent of a ‘chair a day’ is probably somewhat excessive, the carpenter can use the extra cash to get food and more wood for the next chair. It’s convenient. It is not meant to be your God.

When people like me say we don’t care about money, it’s like we are Money Atheists. ‘Oh so you can live without money eh?’

Well no. I have to pay council tax no matter what. I have to fuel, insure and maintain my car if I want to go anywhere. Especially here – two buses a day and the nearest railway station is 15 miles away. I have to buy food. I can grow and catch only so much here – and if I want fish I need to buy a permit to fish in the river.

It’s not the same as religious atheism. I can live without worshipping or even acknowledging any God. I can ignore religion entirely. But money, you can’t ignore. There’s always someone who wants to be paid for something – or in the case of politicians, they want to be paid to tell you how much to pay them. If you can’t pay they send the boys round to throw you in jail. It’s a feedback loop you can’t evict.

Corbyn and his drooling idiot gang seem to think that you just have to give everyone the same amount of money and it’s all fixed. Capitalism will be gone. But money is capitalism.

If you pressed a button and everyone had the same amount of money, what happens? Some will piss it away on fancy cars and booze. Others will invest in things they can then sell for more money. In a matter of weeks you are back to having a few billionaires and millions who are broke. Russia found this out, as did China, and they modified their systems to accept it. Neither are truly communist because communism cannot work.

It works for bees and ants because within those colonies, the workers are all the same. Humans are not all the same. Communes can work on a small scale if like minded humans get together to make it work, but on a countrywide scale, no chance. It has to be forced, as in North Korea.

If you have to force people to follow your Utopian dream, then it’s not Utopia. And it’s not a dream, it’s a nightmare.

The obsession with money is already killing the planet. Look at what the Greens are doing with their cobalt and neodymium mines and their hundreds of tons of concrete under every windmill. You know dead windmills go to landfill, right? The Greens make money on that too. Where does the money come from? Why, it comes from you, sucker.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there were politicians who cared about people more than money?

Pipe dreams. Sometimes it’s all we have left.
