Faceless Beings

Faceless beings with muffled voices
stare at me through dark sunken sockets
full of fear and fright.

Muzzled and mugged,
choked and tugged;
I see them
here
there
and everywhere!
From dawn to dusk,
from dusk to dawn;
on the streets, in the trains,
on the beach and in the parks!

I know not
who they are!
Friends or foes?
Neighbours or strangers?
Ghosts or living dead?
These faceless beings!

Yet not all is lost!
One single uneffaced face
fills me with boundless joy!
One single smile on a bare face
makes my day!

One single unmuffled “hello”
is a ray of hope!

Hopeful post. Yes, I think all is not lost, not while there are still people connected to their humanity and insist on staying human beings; I’m glad for that. I dread to think of the tragedy it would be if all of us had yielded to this insanity.

It amazes me, and I can’t get used to the fact and don’t think I ever can, that people are going about their businesses and talking to each other as they’ve always did, with masks on, as if it was the most natural thing in the world. It is like being in a science fiction movie that doesn’t seem to have an end.

Those who wear masks, even outdoors, may not know it consciously but I’m sure they are secretly glad that there are people walking around with their bare faces to remind them that wearing masks when one is healthy is not normal, and never is, and perhaps to make them question the overwhelming messages of the contrary.

Every time we catch the eye of someone who is wearing a mask, the message conveyed in that brief eye contact should be something like: “You can take the mask off and breathe as freely as God has made you to breathe, for there is nothing be afraid of.”

Good one, as a musician I wrote lyrics for several songs trying to rid my psyche of the terror and contempt I feel for the New (Ab)normal. Art heals.
Here in Japan, I realize I have been feeling overjoyed when seeing someone who is not muzzled, but… almost no one is. It feels like living in an asylum.
I did an experiment the other day: while the train was stopped at my station (sometimes local trains stop to let rapid ones pass. And, by the way, it is the most crowded trainline in Japan) I walked the length from Car 1 to Car 10, checking if there were any unmasked people. It was not particularly crowded at that hour – everyone was sitting, but I found zero, nil faces. Only blank slates.

I’m curious about something, so I apologize in advance should this inquiry seem in any way impertinent. I can’t help wondering, given everything I’ve read and seen regarding the Fukushima disaster, if the Japanese people generally find the corona virus more threatening than the radiation? It seems from this distance (Eastern USA) that there could be no doubt which poses the greater risk.

Howard, thank you for your question. This might be something I could try to look into, as in what disaster comparisons Japan is making in regard to the rona.
I wasn’t here when Fukushima happened so I cannot really tell you what was the public sentiment back in the day, therefore it would be difficult for me to make any assumptions. However, I, personally, haven’t heard or read anyone comparing the rona to Fukushima or linking it to radiation. Take this with a grain of salt, as I have been trying to keep away from the official narrative and its proponents.
There was, however, parroting of WHO in comparing the rona crisis to WWII.

What I can say for sure and what I find suggestive of the imported nature of the aforementioned narrative, is that the wording, some terminology and memes are being imported/ripped off the English-speaking internet. E.g.
the comparison of mask wearing to wearing underwear, “my mask protects you, your mask protects me” with the same visuals as used in the original version etc. Japanese internet generally doesn’t give much attention to the English-speaking one and has its own memes, but this time there is a distinct prevalence of imported memes. I haven’t seen this happen at such a scale in, for example, Russian internet sphere.

The bioweapon SARS-2-nCoV-19 has silenced demonstrations against Wall Street and The City for the second leg of bank bailouts they are now getting through BlackRock Inc.
via the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury REPO lines of credit U$D.

The cult of personality is now limited to politicians that make public addresses to the faceless unwashed masses via televised prognostications where the politicians are not required to wear a mask whilst they lecture the new feudal serfs.

The new bobble-heads that stand beside politicians on podiums are all mask wearing functionaries whilst the politician is the only individual that is allowed to be mask-less in order to maintain the cult of personality for sole use of propagandizing politicians only.

Orwell could not have devised a better rule abiding authoritarian means of programming for the ignorant populations of bleating sheep masses of serfs for the new feudal world order.

As one that studies Personality Theory I. for one, find it interesting that the new authoritarians have latched onto biogenetic informatics as the new fiat currency to replace U$D Petrodollar supremacy and loss of GDP on energy supremacy.

Finance Capitalism has turned into Finance Socialism overnight via nCoronavirus being implemented through CIA biowarfare of SARS-2-nCoV-19. Behavioural tracking and monitoring will likely be growth sector businesses to get into.

Teachers’ unions call for compulsory face masks for schoolchildren

Patrick Roach, the general secretary of the NASUWT teachers’ union, said: “The Government’s guidance for schools is now out of step with wider public health guidance and guidance to other employers where it is recognised that, where physical distancing cannot be assured, face masks should be worn.

“Teachers and other staff working in schools also want to be assured that, when they return to the workplace in September, they will be afforded the same level of protection as other workers, and that the guidance for schools will be brought into line with guidance for other workplaces.”

Mr Roach noted that Government advice means children over the age of 11 are required to wear coverings when they visit “a range” of facilities such as shops and banks. He said: “So there is a strong argument that face masks should also be made compulsory for children when they return to secondary schools in September.”

Apparently, you think this refutes my assertion, but it doesn’t. The teaching unions do not have the power to determine policy. The face mask requirement is government guidance. It is being implemented by Head Teachers. Indeed, if you read the quote you have provided, you will see that Roach is citing the pre-existing government policy of making masks for children mandatory on public transport and in shops. It is the government that is responsible for the disastrous lockdown, social distancing and mask wearing policies: a government that deliberately engaged in a campaign of fear mongering in order to elicit compliance with its policies. Given that campaign, it is hardly surprising that some people are frightened. Blaming the teachers unions is blaming the victims.

So very true that the government alone has the power to mandate face masks for children.

The only power the teacher’s unions have is to stand up and say “No, we don’t agree with this policy because we believe it will cause far more harm than good.”

And what’s a simple “No” compared to a government mandate?

Difficult to face up to, but personal responsibility IS the only answer. Sadly, THE TEACHERS are doing it. You are indoctrinated, manipulated, ‘nudged’ as a “group” but, ultimately, you take action as an individual. Your choice. As an ex-teacher living on a pittance, I know this.

I do not accept that I am indoctrinated and manipulated. And I cannot see anything I have said that denies personal responsibility.

  1. I should have used the word ‘one’ rather than ‘you’. It was not a personal ‘attack’ as you have, interestingly, received it.
  2. I thought ‘we’ had decided that “I was only doing my duty’ was not an excuse? When a teacher says “you must put on a mask” to a student or isolates a five year old from his friends, then THEY and only THEY are responsible for the harm caused.
  3. If you SEE the indoctrination and manipulation, the poison hasn’t “taken” – it is easier to fool someone than it is to persuade them that they have been fooled.
  4. Your argument is based on democracy? – the biggest manipulation/indoctrination ever created, lasting longer than even communism, facism and all the other isms.

Beautiful night tonight. Saw a young couple walking down the lane with masks under chin. Another young couple approached, similarly donning the chin mask and you could sense they all recognized one another.

As they got closer they all pulled up the masks and indeed they were friends of some sort.

They stopped, keeping some measure of “appropriate” distance, in the lane and conversed for about 5 minutes. Once the conversation was over they walked on and pulled the masks down.

Someone told me once, “Max you don’t need to overthink this one, they’re just idiots.”

That came to mind tonight.

We usually go away a lot, but not so much this year, my wife has been away a bit for a few days several times to look after her mum, but then I have been home to feed stroke and cuddle our cats…

Then twice my wife and I went away for a few days. We got a friend in to feed our cats, and our neighbour was feeding them as well.

Today, I observed her, our youngest most beautiful cat – Lucy nearly 17 years old – just lying on the pavement just outside our drive – sometimes on her fury back, and sometimes asleep, knowing she was completely safe, and if anyone passed her by she wouldn’t really notice them, and if someone stopped to say hello and briefly stroked her..she would wake up and purr, knowing she had a much bigger cat Millie looking after her – and she is really Fluffy

Even the foxes take one look and run away.

We are lucky. We have nice neighbours and a community.

Free Cats Too.

We have cat flaps.

We do not cage them in.

They are both teenage tarts, heading for their twenties

Which is pretty old for a cat.

INVISIBLE YOU

I was wondering does wearing masks affect your hearing, when realizing you can’t understand a damn word anyone is saying anymore. The ruling class has placed a sock in everyone’s mouth prohibiting humans from having verbal interaction. Maybe the next lingua franca should be sign language. It’s easier just to make hand signals than to repeat the same words over and over again and not be understood. And that brings to mind a truly frightening sight of a woman wearing an abstract printed mask covering every part of her face except the eyes. Her mask turned her into the invisible woman….. But wait…that must be the real purpose of masks to create masses of the invisible– dehumanizing populations so people become interchangeable like inanimate cogs in a big machine. 

 I’m not a fan of Trump, but I did watch the Republican Convention last night and was struck by signs of life in an audience “non-impaled by masks.” 
 What would happen if everyone said fuck-you to Fauci, to the Dems, to the mainstream media news and just started living their lives again as if they never heard of the dreaded disease COVID-19.

Not too long ago, the local supermarket deli counter added still more COVID signage. The new signs read something like “Do Not Pull Your Masks Down When Ordering, Thanks. We Can Hear You!

In the few minutes while I was waiting to be serviced, either customers or the deli clerks were asked to repeat themselves at least three or four times. At another food market, I asked for “mozzarella” and the clerk said “mortadella?” 

I’m glad he bothered to clarify, so I didn’t return home to discover that for the first time in my life, I would have purchased a half pound of mortadella.

We already live in a technobarbaric culture of commercial BS, e.g. “Your call is important to us.” So spurious and mendacious communication isn’t novel. 

But I always wonder about the managers who think up or authorize things like that newest bogus deli sign. Do they know that it’s manifestly not true and cynically post the signs anyway, or do they just blindly or “unconsciously” put them up? Are they appeasing their bosses and the shadowy public-health authorities, or the COVID-indoctrinated clerks who complain about mouth-exposing customers endangering their health, or both?

Whatever the case, mundane and pervasive Orwellian doublethink is the result.

RE: I was wondering does wearing masks affect your hearing

Yes it does. The muffled affect from the masks do impair our ability to distinguish syllables. This is what hearing loss is about for most people, it’s not about volume. Also, most people read lips, albeit unconsciously, and to a greater or lesser degree, nevertheless it does help it in distinguishing certain sounds if you can see people mouths’ move. Hearing loss, the most common and also invisible disability, is also about the loss of the ability to discern directionality and therefore where to focus your hearing. This is why people with severe enough hearing loss don’t want to go to parties or want to be around larger groups of people. It’s not that they can’t hear, it’s that they hear everything mushed together. Human hearing is pretty amazing. A person with good hearing can actually direct the focus of their hearing. Masks get in the way of those natural processes.

I can’t honestly say that I’ve done much to “reclaim” the word socially, but I have always felt the same way.

I’m sure there have been scholarly studies and discussion of the basis for anatomical features, and associated impulses and behaviors, becoming cultural and rhetorical pejoratives. It’s related to the phenomenon of certain pleasures being regarded as taboo and inherently dissolute or evil.

But there are so many possibilities for epithets, insults, and put-downs that it seems a shame to abuse such useful and worthy physical attributes for pejorative purposes.

I read a news report this week about work going on in facial recognition in China that was directed towards farm animals. Apparently its comparatively straightforward to recognize cows but very difficult to distinguish pigs, they all look alike to us (now where have I heard this before?). From what I know of sheep they’re worse than pigs, you end up spray painting numbers on their coat because you really can’t tell them apart.

So that pretty much answers the question for you — real sheep cofuse facial recognition systems.

Music of today has been co-opted to be part of the subjugation therapy we see all the time. It is brainwashing and subliminal thought manipulation, practised and honed for 50 years at least.

When I was growing up as a young man in Ireland 30 years ago, the weekend early morning talks shows, played as the breakfast or lunch was being cooked by a matriarch. It generally had an eclectic mix with a local bias, TV was less important and rather rubbish on both channels.

The deliberate near obliteration of my musical Irish cultural heritage, by a bunch of Europhiles is is both apparent, deliberate and obvious over the last 30 years.

It is not that I want to sing rebel songs at breakfast or mourn those that have fallen, giving me the liberty that I cherish, as I eat my lunch.

What I object to is the sanitising of a struggle that has endured hundreds of years and has not yet arrived at a satisfactory solution, and that would be simply be described as Irish independence.

For all of the differences the English and Irish have had over a 1000 years, with freedom in grasp, I would not be one to swap an English yoke for an EU master, that is not Independence.

This is a slave mentality and i do not subscribe to it.

The EU will implode soon enough, under the weight of its hubris and grift. What I would like to see in my life time, is a peaceful United Ireland. One that buried the hatchet and kept a favoured trading status relation with the UK. As equals, not as a subservient lapdog.

I think with the UK out of the EU, if it ever happens, and If Ireland followed suit, we might get back to to some of the synergies that existed, as neighbours; it might be the stake through the heart of the corrupt EU establishment, that is required.

I would personally like to whittle and heat treat that oak stake.

A somewhat different world order is possible if enough folks wake up and see where the EU and globalisation is heading; it can be stopped and is in no way an inevitability.

I want no part of a NWO or their plandemic psyop and those responsible must be fully held to account for all the unnecessary deaths and misery they have caused by their actions.

To see justice will require a change of those that wear wigs and pontificate, i think that could be straight forward enough, though there may be a few tears.

They have over played their hand, they need to lose everything, and then we move forward to a more equitable,meritorious, inclusive, but not communist future.

The disaster of the British response to Covid-19 has its origins in the optics beloved of campaigners, pollsters and spinners. Ministers plainly panicked in response to Italian deaths ……

The disaster in countries banning HCQ was far greater than in countries using it correctly, early, and routinely. Some reports say 80% fewer deaths in the latter group. I’d say the many 1000s of unnecessary deaths constitute the single most damaging truth to the UK ruling elite, whose politicians and civil servants are the hugely gullible victims and/or corrupt stooges of big pharma and globalist ideology. Such politicians cannot put nation first.

https://www.fda.gov/media/134922/download. This is a PDF document dated 31 July 2020, titled: CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel 

See Pg 40 of 59, Section: Performance Characteristics: Quote: “Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available ”

Definition of Virus Isolates: Primary isolate is a pure microbial or viral sample THAT HAS BEEN OBTAINED FROM AN INFECTED INDIVIDUAL, rather than grown in a laboratory
.
If we substitute the definition of virus isolates into the above quote, you get the following: “Since no viral sample of the 2019-nCOV that has been obtained from an infected individual are currently available”

As of 30 August, there are worldwide “cases” totaling 25,162,066 (https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/)

Not one single individual of 25 million who tested ‘positive’ for COVID-19 have been able to provide scientists with with a sample of the virus taken from their body.

Not one single person out for more than 25 million. How is that possible? Because there isn’t a virus isolated. Until it is isolated, it can’t be claimed to exist.

Not Faceless Beings. We have been sailing and got into a bit of difficulty last week. One guy we met was a complete angel. My son just met him on the beach. Whist my wife and I are now at home, there are now two young families sailing together in The English Channel, occasionally finding shelter ftom the storms for their sailing boats. They will be back soon (probably), because their young kids are going back to school next week.

We had only planned it for 5 days, thought we would be back last Wedensday, but then we we were caught by the storm, and lost our new dinghy – the plastic brackets just snapped, and as the sea suddenly became very rough.

My wife and I shouted at the Captain – Get Your Life Jacket on, and most unusually our son obeyed. It was very rough, but he got his dinghy back.

I screamed at him, do not leave the boat. We can survive without the dinghy, but we can’t survive without you..

It was very scary.

So we found shelter for 3 days, when we couldn’t move cos the anchor and the chain were entagled amongst rocks (which probably saved our lives)

The wind was very strong, but sheltered on an island, the other side of the wind, the waves were quite mild – even sexy in bed (my wife came along too)

On the third day of not being able to move the boat my lad trecked across the other side of the island to find the dive shop. He had freedived to try and free the anchor, but was too boyant in his wet suit to disengage the tangle of chains, preventing him from pulling up the anchor. There was no one there at the dive shop. All he wanted to do was to borrow a bottle of air (he is a fully qualified diver but didn’t have the gear)

So he comes back to our beach with nothing – and sees this family playing on the beach.

He asks them Hi – I’ve got a problem with my boat – I can’t shift the anchor. Have you got any scuba diving gear on your boat mate?

He says to him, Yeh, I will meet you at 2:30pm at low tide.

I have never seen two people who had never met each other work so brilliantly. trying to think of and try everything they could think of to disentagle the chain and the anchor from the rocks 8 metres below – with my lad freediving…his brilliant new friend on scuba

By 4pm we were free. I have never seen two people work so hard together, who had never met each other before in their lives.

He refused to take anything in thanks. In fact he even offered us some milk.

We caught 7 large pollock and ate most of them (we were running low on food)

The first few days were like heaven, then it got tough…but we survived (so far – my son is still out at sea – but I am pretty sure he is safe – in fact he just replied he was)

For nearly 2 weeks, I had almost forgotten about COVID

And today, I arrive back in ZOMBIELAND

I have a problem. I will not wear a MASK, and I very rarely go into a shop.

Halfway back home with my wife, I needed £60’s worth of Diesel and a Piss.

The diesel was in my car, as COVID Police turned up, right next to it, and took up station by the entrance to the shop. They could quite obviously see the packet of fags, sticking out of my shirt pocket. My wife had disaapeared inside the shop, but most importantly I was dying for a piss.

The COVID Police followed me round the shop. My only defence was my walking stick

, and talking to my wife (who was wearing a mask). I paid for the diesel and the snacks – the COVID Police watching my every move…but there was no bag. So I had to give he snacks to my wife, as I went into the toilets.

Whilst I was in there, the COVID Police Interrogated my Wife.

She gave the right answer.

I though I was like a jew in NAZI ENGLAND

It really upset me.

We will be off again soon. You are all mad here in England and you think its normal.

Tony
