2020 was GloboCap Year Zero. The year when the global capitalist ruling classes did away with the illusion of democracy and reminded everyone who is actually in charge, and exactly what happens when anyone challenges them.
In the relatively short span of the last ten months, societies throughout the world have been transformed beyond recognition. Constitutional rights have been suspended. Protest has been banned. Dissent is being censored. Government officials are issuing edicts restricting the most basic aspects of our lives … where we can go, when we can go there, how long we are allowed to spend there, how many friends we are allowed to meet there, whether and when we can spend time with our families, what we are allowed to say to each other, who we can have sex with, where we have to stand, how we are allowed to eat and drink, etc. The list goes on and on.
The authorities have assumed control of the most intimate aspects of our daily lives. We are being managed like inmates in a prison, told when to eat, sleep, exercise, granted privileges for good behavior, punished for the slightest infractions of an ever-changing set of arbitrary rules, forced to wear identical, demeaning uniforms (albeit only on our faces), and otherwise relentlessly bullied, abused, and humiliated to keep us compliant.
None of which is accidental, or has anything to do with any actual virus, or any other type of public health threat. Yes, before some of you go ballistic, I do believe there is an actual virus, which a number of people have actually died from, or which at least has contributed to their deaths … but there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever of any authentic public health threat that remotely justifies the totalitarian emergency measures we are being subjected to or the damage that is being done to society. Whatever you believe about the so-called “pandemic,” it really is as simple as that. Even if one accepts the official “science,” you do not transform the entire planet into a pathologized-totalitarian nightmare in response to a health threat of this nature.
The notion is quite literally insane.
GloboCap is not insane, however. They know exactly what they are doing … which is teaching us a lesson, a lesson about power. A lesson about who has it and who doesn’t. For students of history it’s a familiar lesson, a standard in the repertoire of empires, not to mention the repertoire of penal institutions.
The name of the lesson is “Look What We Can Do to You Any Time We Fucking Want.” The point of the lesson is self-explanatory. The USA taught the world this lesson when it nuked Hiroshima and Nagasaki. GloboCap (and the US military) taught it again when they invaded Iraq and destabilized the entire Greater Middle East. It is regularly taught in penitentiaries when the prisoners start to get a little too unruly and remember that they outnumber the guards. That’s where the “lockdown” concept originated. It isn’t medical terminology. It is penal institution terminology.
As we have been experiencing throughout 2020, the global capitalist ruling classes have no qualms about teaching us this lesson. It’s just that they would rather not to have to unless it’s absolutely necessary. They would prefer that we believe we are living in “democracies,” governed by the “rule of law,” where everyone is “free,” and so on. It’s much more efficient and much less dangerous than having to repeatedly remind us that they can take away our “democratic rights” in a heartbeat, unleash armed goon squads to enforce their edicts, and otherwise control us with sheer brute force.
People who have spent time in prison, or who have lived in openly totalitarian societies, are familiar with being ruled by brute force. Most Westerners are not, so it has come as a shock. The majority of them still can’t process it. They cannot see what is staring them in the face. They cannot see it because they can’t afford to see it. If they did, it would completely short-circuit their brains. They would suffer massive psychotic breakdowns, and become entirely unable to function, so their psyches will not allow them to see it.
Others, who see it, can’t quite accept the simplicity of it (i.e., the lesson being taught), so they are proposing assorted complicated theories about what it is and who is behind it … the Great Reset, China, the Illuminati, Transhumanism, Satanism, Communism, whatever. Some of these theories are at least partially accurate. Others are utter bull-goose lunacy.
They all obscure the basic point of the lesson.
The point of the lesson is that GloboCap — the entire global-capitalist system acting as a single global entity — can, virtually any time it wants, suspend the Simulation of Democracy, and crack down on us with despotic force. It can (a) declare a “global pandemic” or some other type of “global emergency,” (b) cancel our so-called “rights,” (c) have the corporate media bombard us with lies and propaganda for months, (d) have the Internet companies censor any and all forms of dissent and evidence challenging said propaganda, (e) implement all kinds of new intrusive “safety” and “security” measures, including but not limited to the physical violation of our bodies … and so on. I think you get the picture. (The violation of our bodies is important, which is why they love “cavity searches” in prison, and why the torture-happy troops at Abu Ghraib were obsessed with sexually violating their victims.)
And the “pandemic” is only one part of the lesson. The other part is being forced to watch (or permitted to watch, depending on your perspective) as GloboCap makes an example of Trump, as they made examples of Corbyn and Sanders, as they made examples of Saddam and Gaddafi, and other “uncooperative” foreign leaders, as they will make an example of any political figurehead that challenges their power. It does not matter to GloboCap that such political figureheads pose no real threat. The people who rally around them do. Nor does it make the slightest difference whether these figureheads or the folks who support them identify as “left” or “right.” GloboCap could not possibly care less. The figureheads are just the teaching materials in the lesson that they are teaching us.
And now, here we are, at the end of the lesson … not the end of the War on Populism, just the end of this critical Trumpian part of it. Once the usurper has been driven out of office, the War on Populism will be folded back into the War on Terror, or the War on Extremism, or whatever GloboCap decides to call it … the name hardly matters. It is all the same war.
Whatever they decide to call it, this is GloboCap Year Zero. It is time for reeducation, my friends. It is time for cultural revolution. No, not communist cultural revolution … global capitalist cultural revolution. It is time to flush the aberration of the last four years down the memory hole, and implement global “New Normal” Gleichschaltung, to make sure that this never happens again.
Oh, yes, things are about to get “normal.” Extremely “normal.” Suffocatingly “normal.” Unimaginably oppressively “normal.” And I’m not just talking about the “Coronavirus measures.” This has been in the works for the last four years.
Remember, back in 2016, when everyone was so concerned about “normality,” and how Trump was “not normal,” and must never be “normalized?” Well, here we are. This is it. This is the part where GloboCap restores “normality,” a “new normality,” a pathologized-totalitarian “normality,” a “normality” which tolerates no dissent and demands complete ideological conformity.
From now on, when the GloboCap Intelligence Community and their mouthpieces in the corporate media tell you something happened, that thing will have happened, exactly as they say it happened, regardless of whether it actually happened, and anyone who says it didn’t will be labeled an “extremist,” a “conspiracy theorist,” a “denier,” or some other meaningless epithet. Such un-persons will be dealt with ruthlessly. They will be censored, deplatformed, demonetized, decertified, rendered unemployable, banned from traveling, socially ostracized, hospitalized, imprisoned, or otherwise erased from “normal” society.
You will do what you are told. You will not ask questions. You will believe whatever they tell you to believe. You will believe it, not because it makes any sense, but simply because you have been ordered to believe it. They aren’t trying to trick or deceive anybody. They know their lies don’t make any sense. And they know that you know they don’t make any sense. They want you to know it. That is the point. They want you to know they are lying to you, manipulating you, openly mocking you, and that they can say and do anything they want to you, and you will go along with it, no matter how insane.
If they order you to take a fucking vaccine, you will not ask what is in the vaccine, or start whining about the “potential side effects.” You will shut up and take the fucking vaccine. If they tell you to put a mask on your kid, you will put a fucking mask on your fucking kid. You will not go digging up Danish studies proving the pointlessness of putting masks on kids.
If they tell you the Russians rigged the election, then the Russians rigged the fucking election. And, if, four years later, they turn around and tell you that rigging an election is impossible, then rigging an election is fucking impossible.
It isn’t an invitation to debate. It is a GloboCap-verified fact-checked fact. You will stand (or kneel) in your designated, color-coded, social-distancing box and repeat this verified fact-checked fact, over and over, like a fucking parrot, or they will discover some new mutant variant of virus and put you back in fucking “lockdown.” They will do this until you get your mind right, or you can live the rest of your life on Zoom, or tweeting content that no one but the Internet censors will ever see into the digital void in your fucking pajamas. The choice is yours … it’s is all up to you!
Or … I don’t know, this is just a crazy idea, you could turn off the fucking corporate media, do a little fucking research on your own, grow a backbone and some fucking guts, and join the rest of us “dangerous extremists” who are trying to fight back against the New Normal. Yes, it will cost you, and we probably won’t win, but you won’t have to torture your kids on airplanes, and you don’t even have to “deny” the virus!
That’s it … my last column of 2020. Happy totalitarian holidays!

Year Zero, presented by Brother Number One. Enjoy, Comrades.
So sorry to read you’re a believer, CJ, you didn’t strike me as the type. I wonder why you believe in the virus when there is zero evidence of it and when doing anything for real that is not wanted for real is simply not part of psyop MO. Why do people not understand the essential nature of psyops? It’s really not that complicated, it’s really so very simple:
What is wanted for real (if anything) is done for real, the rest is faked.
What is wanted for real (if anything) is done for real, the rest is faked.
What is wanted for real (if anything) is done for real, the rest is faked.
When nothing is wanted for real then you have a really perfect Emperor’s New Clothes psyop … although in truth most psyops are pretty Emperor’s New Clothes like because if the naturally occurring anomalies don’t totally give the game away the extra clues they always generously add on top will.
There are at least two very good reasons only what is wanted for real is done for real but no doubt there’s a few more.
1. Reality simply wouldn’t work even if they wanted to implement their psyop as realistically as possible. You can’t get a virus to jump from Wuhan to Bergamo to the Ruby Princess at will. The idea is preposterous and the idea of the perps following a virus is equally preposterous. If anyone thinks the locations of the eruptions of this virus weren’t planned in advance then ….
2. It’s as said (edited) by Theodore Dalrymple, aka Anthony Daniels, British psychiatrist.
The purpose of propaganda is not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponds to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control.
The trouble is: they are the incumbent order and with their minions of human auxiliaries who act as willing coduits for their BS, we are outnumbered! The way peope are responding en masse to this is mindboggingly irrational. It’s almost as if there was a little switch in their minds which has just been flicked! The way they are behaving in uniform lockstep leads one to ask: is this all leading to a preconceived outcome? Like the beached whale syndrome of collective suicide, the masses of mask wearing flesh ghosts collectively give up their lives so another lifeform can emerge perhaps? That people should be so easily comandeered in a certain direction points surely to a predisposition of being openly manipulatable in that way for a reason! No? The Human spirit is very sadomasochist, it turn us on! Has that been designed in us to produce a final outcome? Reason and facts don’t seem to affect people’s ideas about what is going on at the moment. The way they flatly refuse even to be subjected to, never mind consider alternative viewpoints, is really quite disturbing!
If it is a predetermined evolutionary process, then what in the end, would want a planet totally under AI control, with nano botted human slaves.and so much electro magnetic radiation in the environs, it would make biological life untennable? The 0.001%? But they are flesh and blood too! Or something that doesn’t need the subtle interdependence of the earth’s elements and life sustaining eco systems?
It does seem like the partial culling and the total commodification of humanity is under way. And what humans have done to other species (and fellow humans) will be done unto them with the same mercilessness unto which they have dealt others. We are going to become factory farmed humans people and you can’t say we don’t deserve it!
Well, actually, the power is with us. “Their” power only rests on the perception of the sleeping masses of them having power. In reality, “they” are just farts. Hopefully, more people will wake up.
Right on, brother! They will continue to turn the screws. Disobey.
Can’t believe I’ve only just found this site. Thank God there are other sane voices out there, calling this madness for what it is.
It’s 2025. Week 213 of lockdown. Horrific news: Covid 23 has mutated. Curfew is in now in effect. All unauthorised citizens must stay indoors. All infected Americans are being forced into quarantine.

Welcome to your new life as the possible host of an unknown mutated biohazard.
Nice Article. Thanks a lot <3
We wish you Happy New year 20201 to all. https://www.events2021.com/happy-new-year-2021-images/
hey all. Yes it’s the new thing like a rubix cube or whatever.
but please can anyone let me know?
it’s a system that has been designed. For how ever many years the so called winners have been OK with the status quo.
now that the designers have initiated the end of musical chairs, or so it seems. why are we all in a huff and puff?
I guess Hobbes was right?
would welcome any feedback. Thanks.
If you voted Tory at any time, but especially since 1979, do the world a favour and kill yourself.
I haven’t voted in over 24 years, and only ever voted Labour or Alliance (New Zealand coalition of left leaning parties) until I woke up, sniffed the coffee, and realised it was all a Punch & Judy Show designed to give us plebs (you and me) the Illusion that we have a say in what happens. Refer to Emma Goldman on that matter.
Ave you missed the entire point of this article?
Love this article. Spot on!!!!
This essay brings to mind the artwork of George Tooker, such as the painting titled The Waiting Room:
By the way this is a more pressing issue that is being comprehensively overlooked :-
Hey , c’mon CJ , your articles are always a tonic in this crazy world , but you can’t get away with the BS about Sanders & Corbyn .
Sanders was told he was going to be shafted ahead of time , he could have taken a principled stand but what did he do ? That’s right he took the f….g money and bought another beach house .
As for Corbyn , the Home Counties Che Guevara he won’t even stand with his own brother who has more backbone that either of those frauds .
Otherwise good read. Thanks
What do you Brits think of the “humor” of German system media?
(playlist 6 vids)
The day before yesterday, without warning, my Youtube account was suspended. If I was of the opinion that I had not violated the guidelines, I should demonstrate this credibly. I wrote: “You have to prove my guilt to me – not I to you my innocence!”
Youtube was once founded to provide a real citizen-oriented alternative to the mainstream media. If we are now only allowed to “consume” the same garbage as in the mainstream media, we don’t need Youtube! It was primarily critical Youtubers who once made this platform powerful.
In my estimation, our civilization is in a final battle. The endgame has come. Our opponents know this very well, and in the last few years they’ve become very honest with their statements. They no longer hide their intentions, which they have glossed over and concealed for decades. Now it’s all or nothing: them or us. They want to replace us and turn humanity into a mass that can be manipulated at will.
YouTube was provided just for You? Provided? Who’s your provider? Some slab faced,blank eyed kid with you in mind? For Me? For everyone? Or maybe for whoever put up the cash? Who creates the cash, who provides it? Someone who charges real things in exchange for using the fruits of his imagination and gives nothing but promises to pay? The bare faced thieves now make us wear the mask. How delightfully ironic. How hideously tragic.
What takes place there takes place everywhere. Think of the supposedly “open platform for the provision of knowledge” Wikpedia, where ideologues now weed out everything that does not conform to their closed worldview. A beautiful idealistic dream became a nightmare.
Cat and make-up videos are apparently not affected by censorship, but have millions of followers who do not ask critical questions. Whether this is an economic goldmine for Youtube, I can not judge.
One million euros of taxpayers’ money against “racism” as the ultimate proof of mistrust in one’s own people. Of course, “climate and corona deniers” also count as right-wing extremists. https://www.euractiv.com/section/non-discrimination/news/german-cabinet-committee-agrees-to-e1-billion-package-to-combat-racism/
“Supervised thinking”. As someone aptly said: “The peoples of our countries have long since lost moral authority over their own way of life.”
Hugo, I notice you corrected the ‘billion’ within a minute. I found that just on the lower right margin of one’s posted post a ‘settings’ icon appears on rollover, and there you can navigate from the drop-down into the edit function, which is available for a few minutes after the post. Caveat: sometimes unavailable!
Dear Watt, forgive my late response, I am not a daily
visitor. sincere thanks for your valuable tip! Best regards
Btw., Brits & Germans mean something different
when they say “billion”. But that’s just a fun fact.
It’s everywhere all the time. On my internet window bar:
COVID times, COVID market, COVID methods of relaxation, COVID dreams, COVID advice, COVID therapy, COVID dating sites
It’s a brand name. It’s the biggest sales pitch of all time!
True courage is very rare among humans. Most of them prefer the security of being in a group of like-minded people, and are terrified of being alone. The group will act decisively only if someone leads them by “taking the point,” and hence the most risk. This is true irrespective of the level of education of the particular group. As a retired academic, I am able to say that the more educated just have more sophisticated ways of rationalizing their misdeeds, so they tend to be more dishonest than less educated people. I became an academic out of idealism but retired quite disillusioned.
Change is good! Do it.
“GloboCap is not insane, however; they know exactly what they are doing”
Oh yes it is insane.
Knowing exactly what you are doing is no protection from insanity at all.
Confusing ‘insane’ with ‘stupid’ is, of course, a common error, and GloboCap is undoubtedly not stupid.
People follow, hence the “follow button” on Facebook.
For things to go in one direction or the next does not take millions, it only takes perhaps a few thousand influences.
Most civilians don’t want to know the truth. The whole fabric depends on it. Imagine tomorrow all the politicians, food companies, religions, health care CEO’s, scientists, etc came out and told you the truth about how things really are. The whole system would collapse. The system depends on lies and the public lap it up.
It used to freak me out initially, but after 15+ years since I took the red pill I really don’t care anymore. I don’t like people too much. Like George Carlin said, “I like em for maybe a couple of minutes”. Then…
I don’t listen to any main stream stuff. And even though I personally believe OG is part of the program, I come here for free counseling and approval from others. Well don’t we all? Is that not what the like button is for?
Young man i saw you on a you tube i must say i thought your Botox job looked fabulous
You got real Kenny Everett meets David Bellamy look style going on with added pout of course! love the lips
My partner did say ow look he has had some work done on him and of course now your a celeb doing the you tube koshaservative circuit! would make sense.
hopefully soon we will see you on the wonderful truth channel fox news with Tucker Carlson.
Season greeting to you and see you in
Top article! Sums up pretty much everythign. Have to disagree with Trump tough. He operation warp speed vaxx man.
Thank you CJ ! What a perfect way to bring the GlobCap articles to a close for this year. I found your perspective on the events of 2020 in the context of the war on populism to be quite enlightening – To the extent that I even printed them up and handed them to my class of 17 year olds with instrutions to present their findings in the first lesson of the next semester. It would of course be ironic if the school doesn’t open for that next semester though !! But at least they’ll have a better idea of why they have to stay home !! Looking forward to reading you in 2021 …….
A powerful editorial. Although I can’t imagine why he thinks Trump is an opponent to the Gangster class. He gave US taxpayer money to Gavi, one of Gates’ vaccine projects. He gave more money to Big Pharma to manufacture them. Operation Warp Speed to rush them through was his. And he bought millions of doses– still w our money of course.
And was it $3 trillion that was given to the big boys so they wouldn’t be hurt by the lockdown? He didn’t veto that. Anti-establishment?!
I guess a lot of people were taken in by the fake impeachment-as-distraction theater.
Nevertheless a powerful editorial & I thank Mr. Hopkins
last night real trump twitter may as well be sponsored by the big pharma
telling his sheep to go and get the vaccine/shot asap
What a Establishment rebel he is
Giddy up the dialectic.
Hi, what was the name of that video you put up the other day? The one on the birth certificate fraud and the capitalization of names? I can’t find the thread or your original comment.
This is a great article and it hi-lights just how any resistance should not be focused entirely on proving facts. Should it address the insticts of ignorant crowds and how to disarm propaganda most effectively? http://www.tamperproof.earth
To excerpt my initial comment which got buried by being in moderation for 5 hours:
As generally accurate as your essay is, CJ, I have to disagree with you there. No entity presenting a display of Total Power goes to the finicky and painstaking trouble of working a long con. When a Mafia chieftain wants to send a territorial message, he (erm, sorry; she?) doesn’t resort to subterfuge, right?
“The year when the global capitalist ruling classes did away with the illusion of democracy…”
Don’t you just luv it when Marxists identify the Marxist establishment as Capitalist? I know I do, but this Marxist subterfuge is getting stale…
Trump giving the Marxist raised clenched fist salute during inaugural speech…
…invented in 1936 Spain by Spanish Marxists fighting the Nationalists, a counter to the Nationalist salute where the arm is placed at a 90 degree angle, ensuring the fist is facing forward, as the palm in the nationalist salute faced front…
A simplified variant of the Marxist salute is to raise the arm vertically, but ensuring the fist is still facing front.

Trump’s comrades in arms…
Watch between 54:39 – 55:25 minutes…
Now you know why Trump has a Yugoslav Marxist for a wife and his Yugoslav communist party member parents in law live in the White House, and why Trump adores Soviet Russia. But the Marxist co-option of the United States runs much deeper (how do you think a clown like Trump became the president of the United States)…
West Point graduate (May 2016), 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone, giving the Marxist salute, and showing his cap liner where it’s written, ‘COMMUNISM WILL WIN‘…
Rapone’s comrades are standing around unconcerned with his shocking behavior, not to mention the West Point graduate taking the picture.
West Point cadets at Army-Navy football game giving the Marxist salute…
West Point cadets at a July 4 (2011) concert at Trophy Point giving the Marxist salute…
West Point cadets giving the Marxist salute…
Now you know how the United States lost the Korean and Vietnam wars!
At my blog, read the articles…
‘House of Cards: The Collapse of the ‘Collapse’ of the USSR’
‘Playing Hide And Seek In Yugoslavia’
Then read the article, ‘The Marxist Co-Option Of History And The Use Of The Scissors Strategy To Manipulate History Towards The Goal Of Marxist Liberation’
Oh Dean … oh dear, surely you must have noticed it was the right fist that these warriors raised. You can fix that easy though. It will help give your BS some wings. Just flip the image horizontally! Do that until your “Marxists” are allowed once again to salute with a raised, straight arm and palm down. Hasta La Vittoria!
So where is the REAL capitalism Dean? Floating on wings of song somewhere in the golden mists of your mind?
errrr………did someone say John Wayne?
Or was it John Galt? I always get them mixed up.
Scary but true. One just needs to look at the top of the capitalist pyramid of hierarchy, it is clearly linked to the medieval royalty structure. Is that still valid today? The USA seemed to break that structure and then returned to it. Trump tried to break it and may still do that?
In this Corona era we may feel like ‘convicts’ while in lockdown, but in reality we are ‘victcons’ (victims of a con).
Yesterday my husband and I drove downtown to do some shopping. Weary of all the Corana madness around me and not in the best of moods…. there I was standing at the entrance of a large supermarket and my husband caught up pushing a shopping cart.
I could tell by the look on his face that he was trying to cheer me up, just like when he used to pretend to be a distant acquaintance of mine when greeting me in public. In formal language he addressed me and in French style he continued with three kisses on both cheeks and held my hand to it.”Mrs. Schmitz, you better wear gloves today to keep Corona away..”
A Karen pushing her cart at about 2,5 meter distance lost it.” How could we in times like these.—”
She came menacingly close gasping under her pp2 mask.
Recently, people over 60 started lining up at pharmacies to get three pp2 masks for free instead of 8 Euros, the normal price.It is part of the new Corona tightening rules.
According to msm bullhorns´ 24/7 relentless propaganda the lockdown is necessary to protect our elderly people, who get three masks for free, but are not allowed to visit their distant relatives for maybe their last Christmas together. The deranged woman demanded an apology for our reckless behavior.
„you are not allowed to do that, without a mask!
“I have a permit and a shawl around my neck, as you can see”, my husband replied,
I interrupted him because he was having fun but I was not in the mood to get into an argument with a witness of Corona, as Covidian cultists are called by sane people in my country.
She was a bit slow with her lack of oxygen, then it must have registered, How would she know, how could anybody tell for that matter we were a couple if we were talking to each other like complete strangers using inappropriate formal language and holding hands. It´s not normal… Like a school principal she
patronized us to be a role model in the fight against the pandemic.
“You are not up to date, the pandemic
“isch over” my husband imitating the quip in broken English by ex-finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble who had said at the beginning of the faux pandemic that „the Corona crisis is a great opportunity,, because there is less resistance to change during this crisis. “We can now get the economic and financial union (in the EU) that we have failed to achieve politically so far.“
Klaus Schwab, anyone?
I managed to pull my husband away, fearing the Corona witness might swoon on the spot with her heavy breathing under what looked like her brand new, free pp2 mask.
My sister, who is a doctor, told me about the danger of these masks if they are worn for too long at a time, I think 35 minutes is the maximum, she said, without a proper breather in between.You can’t reason with crazy people, I would have warned the wannabe Stasi woman about her muzzle. Anyway, we had a few onlookers in the supermarket parking lot later on and one of them gave my husband a thumbs-up sign.
Just one guy, well, one must keep the faith, after all.
CJ, I´m looking forward to reading your columns in the new year,
There is no harm in a bit of escapism to lift the spirit. it´s human,
Happy holidays, to all!
That’s a very funny comment. It really cracked me up. I’d have loved to see that scene with my own eyes (but thanks for recounting it so vividly). ;o)
And I’ve decided that I shall henceforth be referring to our brainwashed friends as Corona’s Witnesses. A perfect description!
Appreciate your comment as well. I’m meeting covid sceptics almost every day in Melbourne when I’m out selling the mag. And with some of them, we’ve even hugged in public! Both maskless! While passers-by either glared or looked almost terrified. How dare we hug!
How sad. These people are completely drowning in fear. And their blind, irrational obedience will drag us all down.
Sitting on a train now, and over the PA comes the message “a friendly reminder to all passengers that you must be wearing a fitted facemask at all times while travelling on public transport”. I held up my cup of coffee at the camera!
Interesting, that here in Melbourne, I’m seeing more people not wearing facemasks while travelling, especially on trains. I think more are slowly waking up.
Stay safe. No thanks, I’d rather stay alive.
We’re on the same page Nixon. So much damn fear… everywhere. But that’s exactly what the pyschopaths want.
“GloboCap is not insane, however. They know exactly what they are doing ….”
This is the only part of Mr Hopkins’ column I would disagree with. GloboCap is fucking batshit loony-tune insane – period. It, and those who fancy themselves Masters of Humanity, haven’t got a sane cell in their collective brains. It’s only because they run the asylums that they’re not already there.
Here’s a newsflash GloboCap can put in its pipe and smoke: humanity WILL WAKE UP. Why? Because the day is coming when it will have no choice but to wake up. Either it wakes up or the species goes extinct. There is no in-between.
Nah he is right. Even if they are crazy as fuck they still know exactely what they are doing. Eberythign that is happening now they planed meticulously in advance and it seems to work out perfect.
So how, exactly, do you disagree with Howard?
Countless specimens of batshit crazy tyrants in world history have known exactly what they were doing, but they wouldn’t have done it if they were sane.
I don’t doubt for a moment they think they have it all planned out so that nothing can possibly go wrong – and that’s the proof positive that they’re insane. Sanity is incompatible with euphoric over confidence.

Totally spot-on CJ
That was my exact observation regarding the article on another website.
Without suffering the same mental issues as the GloboCap leaders, it is very difficult to understand what joy they get out of their megalomania. I see them in the same category as serial killers, basically a mystery to normal people, but in this case they are enabled by their wealth so are not locked up to protect the rest of us. The similarity is that both are cowards hiding in the shadows.
They indeed have likely the same pathology as coupel serial killers. Lots of GloboCap leaders are simply psychopaths. You should read Łobaczewski & Haare for some more insight into this.
Tnx bro for the great book. I’ve been looking for such a book throughout all these months!
GloboCap leaders are orders of magnitude more evil than serial killers. I’d be shocked if, collectively, serial killers have murdered more than a million people since the 20th century. By comparison, during the same period, the ‘notch count’ of the predator class is way over a hundred million, probably closer to a billion.
One of the problems I have with the article is that the author saw fit to use the word ‘fucking’ ~13 times but didn’t see fit to use the word EVIL even once while writing about the most evil creatures to ever stalk the earth.
That’s just bizarre, IMO.
The political, economic and military elephant in every article and most comments I read here, is the American empire, the largest in the history of mankind, with 800 military bases and ubiquitous security services in every major city around the world, yet in these pages, it is practically invisible, funny that.
“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticise.”
The thing is, the largest military on Earth (larger than the next 10 largest combined) can only roughhouse nations to the water. I cannot make them drink. Nor can it shock and awe every nation.
Accordingly, since Off G commenters are from virtually around the world, not everyone is obsessed with US hegemony. Their primary concern is with what’s happening right around them.
Mind fuks be that as they may. Reality just laid me 38″ of snow to grapple with in 14 hours. I will admit they are fluffy as all get out. Stihl. They are on the ground between me and the grocery store.
I can’t keep up with these CIA mind fucks, whose doing what to whom, to get what? If there is no hating Communists involved I’m not interested. Can we still hate-on Soros at least?
Come on, seriously guys, give me a conspiracy I can believe in, give me an alien invasion.
“Don’t Mention The Soros”
“It’s The China, Stupid”
“Yes, before some of you go ballistic, I do believe there is an actual virus, which a number of people have actually died from, or which at least has contributed to their deaths…”
I stopped reading there. Anyone who thinks there is actually a virus running amok is clueless/hasn’t done enough research, and does not deserve to have an article published.
I’m not sure that it does not exist at all, I have heard so many people, including myself, claim that they had a strong weird virus in late Feb, early March of this year, that I am beginning to suspect that they released a mild, yet unique flu, probably subcontracted from Wuhan, to use as a ‘marker’, for something they could claim was strange or dangerous later.
It was perhaps weaker than the flu, inflected a large number of the population rapidly but was generally harmless. They needed this to feed the researchers something, who are now talking endlessly about this virus. This is my current thinking.
I don’t watch the news very much. I tend to do more criticle reading, that is one of the ways that I ended up on a web site such as this.
I am not sure how or why or even if there is a virus. All I know is that the Transnational Capitalist Class is robbing and controlling the whole global population. By now that is pretty obvious to any one who is doing any critical analysis.
After watching the MSM news tonight I couldn’t bear to sit in front of the TV for more than 15 minutes. I had to turn it off. To me what I watched was the real virus, lies and fear.
We are at a point and maybe we got there a long time ago, where the MSM is brainwashing the public with Covid and blaming Covid for all the unemployment and down turn in the economy. Have they mentioned how much money the 1 percent has made since this whole plandemic has hit????
This is getting scary since there are fewer people that I can reason with over this whole mess. As of now, I can only think of a “very small” number of people who sees through this false narrative the way I do. Are you experiencing the same thing??????????
Indeed, you are not alone in feeling that. Now we know only too well, what it felt like to live in Nazi Germany in the 30s, very scary isn’t it.
I Like to reassure myself that it is more of a robbery or a heist, than a genocide, that is when I am feeling more optimistic.
Every regime, totalitarian or ‘democratic’, persecutes those they regard or declare as ‘dangerous’ in one way or another. Let’s just mention Snowdon, Assange, Scientists, even Musicians, in general political opponents and minorities, religious or otherwise. This applies to the East as well as to the West, and throughout history. To focus on the ‘Nazi regime’ makes it an exception which blurs a more accurate historical picture.
The difference today is that the number of the dissenters is growing, the number of potential ‘enemies of the people’ include the whole world’s population and the punishment is openly executed, brutal and arbitrary. It does remind me of the Inquisition and of occupying forces throughout history.
And then there are the Daleks – resistance is futile.
makes sense. Thanks.
indeed, but the genocide is coming, in fact it’s been happening right in front of you, it will however be ‘noticeably’ accelerated probably utilising their favourite methodolgy starvation.
more populous demographics will succumb to colony collapse disorder.
leaving just the bbc broadcasting their mendacious bilge into the empty ether.
and bojo and miss jones playing the rat on the lilo.
Very much so.
As has been said before it is impossible to wake up someone pretending to be asleep.
People do not want to focus on what is rolling out before them and have hidden behind the sofa with a chorus of “it can’t affect me.”
Now quick, there must be a footy match on lets watch that. . . . .
Ignorance is bliss.
great comment. Thanks.
I feel more and more like Winston Smith as the days pass ! I am down to one friend who can see what I can see and everyone else is wearing masks in the car while driving alone. Once you learn to see it everything makes sense but the truth of our scary reality is probably just too much for the vast majority to entertain.
I agree with you, thank you.
At times I have a feeling of both fear and anger. I want to turn that feeling into something more positive for myself and others. I am going to think how I can empower myself while at the same time educate others to the plan of The Transnational Capitalist Class which is global domination.
You must never disregard people’s capacity for jumping on whatever bandwagon is trending at the moment. The masks, I think, serve a dual purpose: to “protect” people from death; and to satisfy their need for whimsy.
Eventually, the novelty will wear off; then the masks will come at least halfway down.
And don’t say this is a mighty long time for a trend to continue. Consider young black males wearing their pants halfway down their asses: that fashion trend has gone on at least 25 years.
Indeed, World War II was won by the Transnational Capitalist Class (International, globalism, does that sound familiar? That is, the Jews won it. But you can hallucinate and say that Hitler won it. And for the record, I have given a “like” to your comment.
x 10. The ‘new normal’!
That’s why I am here. Even a supposed “progressive” blog I read , a suspicious and educated crowd on anything government or partisan, mind you, has bought the covid hook, line and sinker. To even question the numbers there will get you labeled a Trumper. That used to be my island of sanity and dissent, but not with this. I find that terrifying.
The virus is the gift that keeps on giving.
Have you ever considered something else might be happening behind the narratives and cover stories of ‘official reality Inc?’
The injection of toxins and the exposure to toxins and the ingestion of toxins along with the undermining of the mind.
In all this time anyone who hasn’t done some research into the history of this stuff is living a managed mind.
But that’s also ok, because no one can question their reality until they do.
No one recognises what they give reality to until they do.
Rappoport and Cowan just did a utube on the underlying absence of facts that are masked in name-magic.
World changing discoveries are what the ‘glocap’ has to contain, cover over and suppress.
I am curious if anyone here has traced the origin of the insidious ‘anti-vax’ ad hominem, which nullifies all arguments w true believers the same as ‘conspiracy theorist’, and the newest one ‘covid denier’. I was just called all three in less than 5 seconds during a regular conversation hahaha! Are they all from Langley, VA?
You hit the trifecta! IMO, being called any of the 3 is a badge of honor and a great way to identify sheeple so you can stop wasting your time.
That’s a predicament. It was my wife! OffG needs to do a factcheck on ‘how to talk to relatives about coincidence theories’.
Agree – a relative of mine was diagnosed positive having lost their sense of smell. That was the only symptom – lasted about 10 days – groggy head for a few days too – on a scale of 1-10 said it barely registered 1 – but it did cause a loss of smell.
CJ Hopkins: “None of which is accidental, or has anything to do with any actual virus, or any other type of public health threat. Yes, before some of you go ballistic, I do believe there is an actual virus, which a number of people have actually died from, or which at least has contributed to their deaths…”
If you read carefully, CJ did not say a novel virus let alone SARS-Cov-2. The flu is a virus. We just may have had a bad flu season. Or, maybe we didn’t. But as Hopkins indicates, it doesn’t really matter. Global capitalism, or Globocap Hopkins’s term, is demonstrating its power. And it is awesome (as in awe inspiring). It’s not about the Democrats or Republicans (my country), or Trump, or the Russians or Chinese. Globocap works for me.
How authoritarian of you.
Let me rephrase that: The article doesn’t’ warrant my attention at this time. Work for you? See my response to my initial comment. Many people need to be educated on what is really going on with this Big Pharma fraud. They know if people start believing that the real problem is the ungodly number of man-made toxins and their combinations that is really causing the problems, they are done for…hence all of the suspicious deaths of population homeopaths over the last decade. It goes hand in hand with the entire anti-human agenda.
I totally get where you are coming from. I‘m at the point in this whole devolution of uncivilized society, where even though I understand why most people believe in the virus myth, (and many other myths) I often lack the patience to partake in willful ignorance.
It took so much reading and research to get where I am, and it’s hard to cross that barrier of popular consensus where you’re virtually on your own.
But much of allopathic medicine is based on fraud that can cause immeasurable harm through unsafe, unnecessary drugs and biologics. That’s not medicine. That’s not science. That’s an economic model based on circular profit, by treating people as disposal, exploitable commodities, when they’re most vulnerable.
Some of my favorite quotes are about alienation and solitude…
Sanity in this culture, requires a certain amount of alienation.
“Do you hate people?”
“I don’t hate them…I just feel better when they’re not around.”
Anti-social behavior is a trait of intelligence in a world full of conformists.
Truth is maladjusted and cannot fit into the massively dumb patterns of ordinary relationships and activities.
Honesty and the higher virtues are nearly non existent in the human race at this time and those possessing them are anomalies and outcasts, due to their inability to operate within the schematic of decadence and corruption.
I come here for respite. To this oasis in the desert of human ignorance, to share with those who can see and hear. To gain the perspective of others, and perhaps combine it with mine, and forge that silver bullet.
You may be perfectly certain that you are on the right track when your craving for solitude becomes a kind of desperation; a thirst that at all costs, and on every day of the week, must somehow be satisfied.
John Cowper Powys
I was sitting alone in the garden this morning and got to thinking how I was a lone soul in a sea of madness. Of all the people I know / have known I couldn’t think of one that gets the big picture. Sure I know one or two that flicker now and again, but even they suffer from relative cognitive dissonance.
Good people everywhere continue to wonder why the majority of the population do nothing and do not care as long as they have sex and food. The simple answer is that they are not like us. They were made by evil to serve evil and that is not going to change.
If you are an aware individual and get yourself into an argument with the sheep, you will have lost before you could even begin. Aware individuals are so few, they don’t even count as minority. On a large scale of things, their presence is so miniscule, they literally don’t exist. You’d have to look long and hard to find one and you can count on it that he/she won’t be easy to spot.
“The inferno of the living is not something that will be; if there is one, it is what is already here, the inferno where we live every day, that we form by being together. There are two ways to escape suffering it. The first is easy for many: accept the inferno and become such a part of it that you can no longer see it. The second is risky and demands constant vigilance and apprehension: seek and learn to recognize who and what, in the midst of inferno, are not inferno, then make them endure, give them space.”
― Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities
‘Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse, when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to cooperate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.’
“much Of” -> “most of”
As CJH implies, the crisis is much bigger than health alone.
I’m not budging on this one. Bullshit “germ theory” is what this whole house of Big Pharma cards is built upon and, subsequently, the totalitarian agenda being orchestrated to perfection. The flu is your body ridding itself of toxins. We do not “catch” colds , like our bodies are being possesed by a demon spirits. There is absolutely no proof that viruses cause disease. The virus thing is akin to believing that bleeding people will cure them of illness. You can add Covid to the list in the quote below. More and more truthful scientists are admitting to this. It is an important part of the puzzle and if I read otherwise in an article, IN MY MIND, it is near worthless.
“Three criteria are, according to the scientific method needed to properly identify a virus. It must be isolated from a host cell. As of 2016 this has never been accomplished in humans. It must be photographed and its diameter measured. As of 2016 this has never been accomplished in humans. It must be biochemically characterized. As of 2016 this has never been accomplished in humans. This has never been done with any virus (herpes, hepatitis, hl nl, bird flu, swine flu, influenza, polio, measles) let alone HIV, HPV, SARS, Zika or Ebola.”- Viruses. How Much is that Dogma in the Window? — New Medicine Online
“We agree with those members of the profession who hold that no germ causes tuberculosis. Germs do not cause any disease. Further, we agree that there is more harm in the fear of germs than there is in the germs themselves.” – Timely Truths on Human Health – Simon Louis Katzoff, M.D. 1921
“The general public have been told that we do not become ill except when germs penetrate into from without. The germ theory of disease is ridiculous.” — Bechamp or Pasteur. A lost chapter in the History of Biology – E. Douglas Hume
“In all that I have witnessed inside and outside of laboratories, there is only one cause of disease: Industrial pollution in medication, food, air, soil and water. Strengthening a body’s constitution and lymphatic system is the first step to reversing/curing disease” – Aajonus Vonderplantiz.
“Rudolph Virchow, a great German scientist, repudiated the germ theory of disease. He said that disease brought on germs rather than the germs caused disease. Claude Bernard, Bechamp and Tissot – great French scientists – all disproved the germ theory of disease. In Hans Selye’s book Stress of Life (Page 205), an account is recorded that Louis Pasteur, inventor of the germ theory of disease, admitted he was wrong. Sanitation is the only factor that has reduced the spread of the old-time scourges. If the germ theory were founded on facts, there would be no living being to read what is here in written, for germs are ubiquitous – they exist everywhere. In many diseases supposedly caused by a specific germ, that germ is not present. Contrariwise, specific germs said to cause a specific disease are present in huge proportions without the specific disease manifesting itself. – Dr. Bernarr, D.C., D.D
Viruses are simply the excretions of a toxic cell. Viruses are pieces of DNA or RNA, with a few other proteins. They butt out from the cell. They happen when the cell is poisoned. They are not the cause of anything.” – Thomas Cowan MD on Rudolf Steiner’s insights.
Very interesting read, livingsb. Thank you for posting it.
“..only one cause of disease: Industrial pollution..”
Other causes of harm are (a) experimental and poisonous medical treatments (b) conditions of work, home, environment and society. Mental stress alone triggers or worsens disease.
… plus faulty nutrition,although that could be included in your (b)
My biggest question is how all this impacts sickness and death in those (admittedly few) indigenous people still unaffected by modern industrialization? They do get sick; they do die. How to account for it if we remove “germs” from the list of suspects?
The body is not immune to physical rigors. Living organisms are not designed to last forever. It is a good question, the real point being is that the Pharmaceutical aims are sinister and not based on science, but rather manipulated data. Real scientists are silenced or killed these days. If there was no such thing as “germ theory” where we treated microbes as enemies of the body and we really took a hard look at the damage being cause by invasive toxins, where would we be? In a pretty good spot.
I’m pretty much compelled to withdraw my comment. I forgot the book I’m slowly (very slowly) reading: Carl Zimmer’s “Parasite Rex.” Perusing that book again, it becomes crystal clear that there are parasites galore – especially in jungle and wetland settings – to kill every person on the planet.
It’s absolutely mind-boggling how ingeniously these parasites get human physiology to work to their benefit. So, really, were it not for the detour onto the microbe pathway, we might have carried the initial research on parasites to a new level by now.
”when the GloboCap Intelligence Community and their mouthpieces in the corporate media”
By ‘’GloboCap Intelligence Community’’ Do you really mean the CIA?….. If not, who are talking about? Because the CIA is controlled by the US military industrial complex and Americas Generals and political elite. Have perhaps missed out half your story perhaps… Is your story missing an Empire?
CIA was founded by Wall Street bankers and lawyers. It not military intelligence but rather the boot boys for business. It answers to private financial interests.
That’s perfectly clear from the nature of CIA interventions down the years and from the extent to which it is self financing.
There is a bureaucracy involved in intelligence gathering and analysis (poor record – not very successful, one must add) but that serves mainly as an excuse to tap into public funds.
Not at all, they have the stars and strips tattooed on their arses, and they cry like babies if you play them The Star Spangled Banner. You’re just making stuff up to distract form the US.
”O say can you see by the dawn’s early light……What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming? ……..”
Moneycircus could you point me to any sources on the origin of the 1984 style cultural psyop ‘anti vax’—when/where did that astro turfing begin?
You may be looking for answers in all the wrong places. Rather than seeking the origin of the “anti-vax” epithet, perhaps a better place would be the origin of the understanding of vaccines’ enormous dangers – which was probably about the time autism began its meteoric rise.
All media slurs – anti-vax, conspiracy theory et al – are primarily reactions, not actions.
Exactly, and the main purpose of Intelligence is not to find out what your enemy’s doing but to control what he thinks. Hence, it is the CIA which founded the first three TV networks.
What did Gen. Smedly Butler say? Globocap is transnational wealth, a crooked casino that cannot lose.
Unless he bombs them of course, or the CIA blackmail them, did he forget that bit?
Great read, CJ, as always.

It’s an appropriate image. Hopkins describes the world of the confused masses living in a pseudo-reality; that never-ending hall of mirrors created by the vacuous technocrats. But he knows there is another reality. It is this other reality which is smashing its way through from the other side; and THIS is the defining conflict of the age.
Like trying to explain Jupiter’s moons using some adapted model of crystal spheres, nothing which is now happening in the hall of mirrors can be understood without taking account of this other reality. Part of the confusion is that Trump is communicating to both realities, but only those on the other side will register the double meanings. For example, when he talks of the “invisible enemy”, he’s not referring to a virus.

Holy Trinity Sunday
In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority. And yet the former are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media. In an apparently inexplicable way, the good are held hostage by the wicked and by those who help them either out of self-interest or fearfulness.
Appeal – May 7, 2020:
When we look into a mirror we think the image that confronts us is accurate. But move a millimetre and the image changes. We are actually looking at a never-ending range of reflections. But sometimes a writer has to smash the mirror – for it is on the other side of that mirror that the truth stares at us.
I believe that despite the enormous odds which exist, unflinching, unswerving, fierce intellectual determination, as citizens, to define the real truth of our lives and our societies is a crucial obligation which devolves upon us all. It is in fact mandatory. If such a determination is not embodied in our political vision we have no hope of restoring what is so nearly lost to us – the dignity of man.
— Harold Pinter (2005 Nobel Prize acceptance address)
let me guess trump is a light worker
I did some research!……..and realised that all those rights and opportunities we are now losing were mostly fought for by the left, and here we are, finding ourselves supporting the right, and at war with the old left. I wonder if that is related? Did we join up with and start voting for the guys who were stealing our freedoms and wealth and join in the destruction and demonisation of those who were on our side along? …. ops… I think we did.
Magnah Carter… was he a lefty? Magnah, my man!
The Magna Carter defined the rights of the nobles & knights in a monarchy. The peasants got nothing from Magna Carter. Have you heard of socialism and later, Karl Marx?
The Magna Carter defined the rights of the nobles & knights in a monarchy. The peasants got nothing from Magna Carter. Have you heard of socialism and later, Karl Marx?
The Magna Carter defined the rights of a few nobles & knights in a monarchy. The peasants got nothing from Magna Carter. Have you heard of socialism and later, Karl Marx?
Magna Carter is a bit of levity based on Jimmy Carter’s surname resembling “Carta”
You obviously have not read the Magna Carta 1215, if you had then you would know how wrong your comment is. Are you a shill/
The left and the right are both hands of the same magician. He’s an illusionist. As long as you’re watching either hand- or both- you won’t see the hand that’s hidden. That’s the one that answers to nobody and no party because it’s the only party. The trick was to make the world believe in the notion of opposites and opposition.
Do you not know anything about political history? Maybe this is an operatunity for you to start learning? Perhaps then, you could understand better what those labels mean and the complex history that led to their use. Good luck.
I think you should forget trying to develop a ‘caustic’ wit and go back to your mainstream TV stations and Facebook history lessons.. Then at least you’ll just be low scoring in one thing.
Interesting comment. I would ask: what do you mean by the “old left”? To me, the old left was best represented by the CIO of the 1930’s. If that is what you mean by “old left” I disagree. You are at war with the New Left (starting in the ’60’s). There is a direct lineage btwn the New Left, Post Modernism, Lifestyle Activism (from the 1980’s to 1999) and that which see later. We start to see Identity Politics showing up. In its latest form, we see transgender authoritarianism – which can be critiqued from a genuinely left position as is both anti-gay, anti-lesbian and of course anti-feminist. All these are academic in origin. Who decides who get hired to teach what? Who are on the boards of trustees of universities? In other words, these truly debilitating ideologies( for working people) are top-down in origin.
This looks like a realistic appraisal of what is going on. Though the identity politics was an outgrowth of the new left, I think it was a controlled blind alley of certain aspects of the new left. The real centrepiece of the “new left” was more anti-militarism and imperialism. There were elements of identity politics which piggybacked onto it, and they became convenient ways to neutralize the “new left’ as a threat to the structure. This enabled identity politics to evolve into the dominant stream over time, and led to the excesses of political correctness, which can be characterised as a sort of new new controlled left which has morphed into a new type of fascism based on discrimination against the normal. The deterioration in academe is notable and has been rapidly accelerating of late.
Yes, you’re right, they were mostly fought for by the (old) left. And there are still some of us hiding out in basements. The “new left,” not left at all but faking it for public support, eviscerated the old left and renamed themselves “neoliberals” and “progressives”. Even those words were emptied out over time. Now they are technocrat authoritarians, moving quickly to totalitarianism, as are the “socialists,” who have completely lost their way. Sensing the vacuum, the right have (coincidentally and opportunistically) become the defenders of our civil liberties. There it is, the Cliff’s Notes version.
The problem was the hostile takeover of the “left” in the ’90s by the Clintonites and Blairites. The left was neutered and, with political correctness, has become a phony controlled fascist opposition. Now the paradigm is system versus anti-system. Anti-system types holding left positions were brushed aside with the defeat of Corbyn, who definitely helped in his own defeat by not purging the Blairite elements despite their repeated betrayals. Often now what was the traditional right is under less control than the former left, and many of the nationalists are popular because, like Orban in Hungary, they protected the pensions and social benefits of the government from neoliberals like Soros. “Obamacare” can be seen as the quintessential policy of the “controlled left”. It is inferior to nothing and is there to the real necessary socialisation of the medical system.
Strange to think that all the rights and opportunities we are now losing were mostly fought for by the left, and here we are, finding ourselves supporting the right, and at war with the old left. I wonder if that is related? Did we join up with, and start voting for the guys who were stealing our freedoms and wealth and join in the destruction and demonisation of those who were on our side along? …. ops… I think we did.
Who are soldiers for GloboCap mafia? One example.
CounterPunch punching COVID skeptics. Lets counter counterpunch.
How to Cure America’s Vaccine Paranoia.
The first question we Musk ask is Whose paranoia, author of this article, Sonali Kolhatkar wants to cure? skeptics’ or establishment own? Or her own?
Sonali Kolhatkar used to be leftist community activist near hysterical in condemnation of corporate crimes and government colluding with oligarchy aimed at economic, environmental and physical harm to community health and well being urging default position of distrust and skepticism that is not academic, not based on theoretical theoretical speculation but on real contemporary and historical facts, enacted policies’s documented results and actions as a matter of public record.
She used to urge listeners of KPFK in LA area over a decade ago “nothing about us without us in our community” as only community collectively possesses wisdom to make right decisions not influenced by moneyed and power but based on common sense community interests. Distrust of government is not paranoia or conspiracy theory but common wisdom of community, she proudly proclaimed in the past.
But that Sonali is long gone. Welcome new Sonali corporate apologist, Fauci shill who see no corporate or government evil or paranoia of all those scared to death about COVID peddled as most dangerous pandemic that ever was.
Kolhatkar became autocrat with fascist bent viciously infantilizing as stupid, ignorant of “real” danger, incapable of defending themselves from COVID disaster bunch of morons, slandering reluctant communities, she previously wanted to empower to make their own decisions.
She viciously attacks and demean, broad communities of cautious skeptics only because they are reasonably skeptical of COVID and distrustful of hastily developed and marketed hugely profitable vaccines. What worse she provided no other rational argument to ease their worries or evidences for those communities to debate and possibly modify their skeptical positions. The “shut up and do what I say morons for your own good” is her and and other former leftists now shills of establishment, nauseating mantra.
Lacking power in her arguments Kolhatkar uses ultimate argument of power and authority, the same decreed autocratic authority she previously decried as dangerous, paranoid and even genocidal .
Here she writes about historical objections of minorities To “vaccination” used for genocide in the past but learn nothing from them relain s stubbornly intransigent.
Several key segments of the American population have varied reasons for vaccine skepticism. Among Black and brown communities, there is a deep-seated and justifiable mistrust due to historical government-sanctioned medical abuse that is reflected in new polls about the COVID-19 vaccine. On the American left, mistrust of large pharmaceutical companies putting profits above the public health—again justifiable—is driving cynicism about the motives of private corporations that have had piles of taxpayer cash thrown at them.
So what’s your point Sonali. What’s wrong with JUSTIFIED objection and distrust?
Is not healthy skepticism, not paranoid fear, proven virtue of self preservation of minority communities ? Does she ask us to forget historical lessons which ignorance already led to documented genocide?
Then She criticized liberal elite for.. too much caring about apparently too healthy lifestyle that involves not loading themselves with big Pharma bioagents considered dirty impure for such wholesome life of liberal privilege.
Among liberal elites, the growing popularity of “clean eating,” “wellness,” and taking personal responsibility for one’s health through expensive diets and rigorous exercise regimes has seeded an insidious movement that strives for purity as a pathway to well-being and health.
So what’s wrong with, according to Sonali “subverting” fabric of society supposedly fighting COVID, activities of clean life and personal responsibility. Is lifestyle cleanliness not what godliness and Covid defeating Hygiene supposedly is all about as you are told?
Not for Sonali, as she blames natural, healthy, wholesome living for supposed paranoid delusions driven aversion to inoculation with artificial bioagents with unknown toxicity
Having made no valid argument against cleanliness of skeptical liberals she desperately attacked small number of courageous doctors, Celebrities and activists cursed as anti vaxxers blamed for ruining supposed “deeply” entrenched trust in vaccines that in fact never existed.
..doctors like Andrew Wakefield, celebrities like Jenny McCarthy, and political figures like Robert Kennedy Jr. have caused serious damage to trust in vaccine safety.
So was it not reasonable and justifiable, in Kolhatkar own words, not to trust corporate vaccines safety because of horrific contemporary and historical safety record against minorities and others?
Or is it the issue of who with what color of skin or ethnicity brings up subjects of vaccines danger? Racialistic attitudes of the author are very clear here.
Then she takes aim at the political right for supposed eugenics by bringing up epidemiological term “herd immunity” which had in political realm, racist colonial policies’ connotations in the past which she exploits by mentioning Trump in her writing.
on the right Also prevalent is the notion that “herd immunity”—which is a term used to describe the threshold of safety that vaccines achieve if enough people take them—can be achieved simply by enough people catching the disease.President Donald Trump has been one of the chief proponentsof this thoroughly debunked idea.
Sonali, your description is not what herd immunity is epidemiologically and no it was not debunked in immunological sense. Herd or population immunity in context of mild respiratory infectious diseases like flu or COVID is achieved not when enough people get disease but when enough people are inoculated naturally, developing no disease or clinical cases or at worse have mild symptoms requiring no doctor’s visit or hospitalization.
Nobody advocates herd immunity for Ebola epidemics where IFR Is 50% or more while it is reasonable approach for population segments with IFR of 0.1% or less like for COVID or flu.
In fact herd immunity is what’s behind idea of vaccinations as they are designed to achieve it by artificial means with all the associated risks of injecting bioagents dangerously bypassing general immune system barriers of skin and gastro-respiratory system well versed in dealing with viral infectious diseases like flu.
Further in the text Kolhatkar keeps arguing with essentially herself regurgitating the same slogan “trust science” with as many spurious arguments as she can concoct.
Scientists have estimated that at least two-thirds of the population need to be vaccinated in order to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Which scientists Sonali? Those on payroll of Big Pharma? There is not a shred on consensus among experts about that, those who peddle it are ignorant college dropouts like Gates.
In fact herd or population immunity is the recommended way dealing with seasonal viral pandemics like flu described in WHO and CDC current guidelines urging no lockdowns, no face masks and no social distancing as efficiency of flu vaccines is on average only 25% taken only by vulnerable while flu infection spreads worldwide infecting 250-750 millions or more every year with no need to vaccinate billions, numbers argued as establishment pushes for COVID.
As IFR for COVID according to scientists of CDC is 0.14% close to 0.1% for flu similar viral infection spreading in similar ways, why not apply the same methods of herd immunity to COVID as well, and skip mass vaccinations especially with untested vaccines. But that would be unthinkable bridge of cult Covidian dogma of prohibition of any rational thinking devoid of fear.
In the end of article we finally found out how dangerous to our health insidious concept of liberty can be. As author reveals her fascist bent:
There is another insidious obstacle to a vaccination program. We live in a nation enamored by libertarian ideals. The concept of collective action to protect the common good flies in the face of “individual liberty”..
Is this really collective action, with broad consultations among all communities including all experts, Kolhatkar is talking about or simply autocratic dictate of establishment under power of brutal state coercion. If liberty and self governance was ever needed it is today as we need less cultish dogmas suppressing free speech and political liberty and more power to communities, not to lapsed Marxists, to decide their fate.
Vaccines don’t just protect the individuals who take them; they offer collective safeguards for society as a whole. A population that has been conditioned to think about health as a solely individual concern has been hard-pressed to swallow such an idea. Think about the obstinate mask-refusers among us.
No, Sonali Vaccines do not protect us, excellent General physical and mental health in society devoid of poverty and extreme systemic social stress of decaying capitalism in crisis as well as healthy immune system is what protects us collectively. It is big Pharma that wants us harmed for profit.
Nice linguistic concoction of “mask-refusers a plague among us” covers up a smear against skeptics treated like old Soviet Regime refuzeniks of.. totalitarian power.
Entire article is full of incoherent self-contradictory subjective reasoning, hasty and incorrect generalizations, straw man, non sequitur arguments about vaccines asserting that “vaccines protect us” and community, a claim never made by manufactures of current COVID vaccines nor by FDA EUA as they for the very reason of high likelihood of potential harm to population from their experimental/investigative vaccines, demanded and obtained total legal immunity, indemnified by governments.
Entire torturous article is full of cliches and government propaganda spiced up with embarrassing ignorance and self emasculation making this turd of a article hard to read and that is unfortunate but not unexpected from Kolhatkar by those who follow her career from one bottom to another as she refused to open up honest debate about reality of socioeconomically devastating COVID phenomenon and chose instead peddling vested interests of COVID influence peddlers.
When the “cases” in Sweden trailed off, that suggested herd immunity at 15-20% of population. That may have disappointed the vaccine purveyors. While most Swedes were going about their activities in a disciplined manner, some young people were persuaded to attend “rave” parties inside forests. Now, the country is experiencing a resurgence of “cases”.
Sonali took the soros shilling years ago and has rendered herself irrelevant as another shill for the omnicient power structure.
Thank you for your comments. I have noticed the same Covid hysteria in Chris Hedges, Amy Goodman, the World Socialist Web Site and others. Why are they supporting the same Covid narrative as the MSM??????? Enlighten Me, Please?????
If I had to give one answer to a complex question? I would say the effectiveness of the CIA to brand anybody going off the reservation as a conspiracy theorist. It has worked magnificently since 1967.
I hope second and third part (awaiting spam check) of my comment above will at least in part answer your question in case of Kolhatkar. Stay tuned.
Your articles are so insightful. I learn a lot from your comments. They also give me some talking points that I can use to educate others. Thank you. Please keep posting.
Yeah they want the majority to be scared to death about a fake flu yet even ridiculing people to be have scared about the vaccine?
“Sonali Kolhatkar used to be leftist community activist”
“It is called ACTING. Now that that gig is up. She can relax and put the brown (or is black?) shirt back on and become the free flowing easy going CORPORATE FASCIST MASK NAZI viroid conscious type of GAL she always was; and join all the rest of the face diapered bourgeois labor faker fabian fascist EUGENICIST SCAMDEMIC BIG LIE puke hacks down back at COUNTERPUFF. Another graduate of the CIA-George Soros-Billy Eugenics Institute of Color Revolution and Global Community Relations.”
Now for some George Carlin.
Thanks CJ, I needed that!
