Fun at Home

Todd Hayen

So working at home is a dream come true, eh? I’ll bet. What fun! A permanent snow day for all! Stay in your PJs all day, go at your own pace, play a few vid games here and there, take a nap once in a while, raid the fridge, have a beer. (Unless you are monitored constantly by Big Brother, which I believe in most “work at home” situations you are).

I doubt if it is as fun as all that. Wife or husband is around 24/7, kids are definitely nonstop, Big Brother, as mentioned, is breathing down your neck. But still, it’s better than dealing with traffic or the train every day and going into the brick and mortar day in and day out. Right? Right.

I’ve asked a few people in this “work at home predicament” what they think about it. Most said, “its great!”…thus the title for this article. A few said they were going crazy due to all of its drawbacks. But it seems the majority are just fine with it—for now.

I say “for now” because like most things Covid has changed in our lives, it seems some time has to pass before we start feeling the ill effects. By then most people don’t seem able to connect the dots. They get anxious, depressed, and unsure of a happy future—but seem to have no idea why.

That is always a difficult thing to nail down in any situation, the “why” of it. In mental health I would say it is probably one of the biggest difficulties—is all that misery due to a traumatic childhood? A tyrant father, a doting mother? Is it drugs or alcohol? Is it adolescent bullying? Is it the environment? Health? A mean and abusive spouse, an asshole boss? Genetics?

Is it all the insanity we have been subjected to since Covid appeared out of a Chinese clear blue sky three years ago? That last one is seldom seen as the culprit. Well, take it from me, when it comes to general anxiety and depression, it is probably more often the culprit than not.

By extension I’d say that about the work-at-home situation as well. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?

I’ll tell ‘ya.

Now, this may seem like a stretch to some, and maybe it is, but you’ve got to keep in mind that all this, in my opinion, is planned. And when something this massive is planned, with a very clear intended result, then just about anything could be part of the plan.

I think shutting down the work world and forcing everyone to sit in their little domestic cubby holes isolated from just about everything all day long is definitely part of the agenda. That’s just me folks, but you know me pretty well by now. Dr. Doom.

But, as Dr. Freud once apocryphally said, “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar,” meaning: maybe the shift of the workforce into home office mode might not be anything at all nefarious. Cough, cough.

So what is important in the care and feeding of a human being? One vital thing is to avoid too much isolation. Sometimes being alone in nature is a great thing, but obviously I am not talking about that sort of isolation. I am curious to know if management has noticed a drop in creativity from their at home work force?

Of course we have Zoom, and Chat, and other forms of mingling with the cyber versions of humans. But I can’t quite wrap my head around how that sort of “cyber contact” is as healthy, and thus as conducive to good work output, than hanging out at the water cooler yakking about the project your team is working on.

Maybe I’m wrong.

But that’s just making a comment on work productivity. How about human mental health? A lot has been written about this, usually from the standpoint of “pros vs. cons.” Needless to say there certainly are advantages to working at home. I don’t need to list them here. And probably the healthiest arrangement is a little bit of both, which seems now to be the trend (for now.)

As with everything else we are experiencing in today’s movement toward the “new tomorrow,” we are at the early stages of it all. At this point in time there is not all that much that would be considered mentally or spiritually destructive. But don’t kid yourself. This movement toward leaving the workplace situated in a downtown high-rise, to your little spare bedroom, basement or garage at home, is not an organic movement due to social evolution. This phenomenon marches more to the drum of “the agenda,” and as such there is plenty to worry about.

Exactly what that looks like I can’t say, but watch the Bruce Willis film “Surrogates” to get a little taste of it. Common sense tells us that big business cannot possibly believe having all their employees at the end of a Zoom wire (well, that is an archaic metaphor) is a good idea. Look at any photograph of a big city skyline and tell yourself that all of those skyscrapers can easily be given up.

I don’t think so. Something is going on here that we don’t really see a clear picture of, and it probably isn’t pretty. Maybe, like so much else, it has something to do with control—imprisoning the work force in an electronically surveilled environment with a careful and watchful electronic eye monitoring every move. Sure, you can do that in an office building too, but there is something exceedingly sinister about the isolation.

When people are isolated from other people for huge expanses of time, things typically do not go all that well. We need socialization, interaction, and human comradeship. Read Oliver Onion’s The Beckoning Fair One to get an eerie (it is a ghost story) take on what can go wrong with an isolated psychology—pretty much all serial killers were loners. I know, I know, your kids, wife/husband, and maybe a few others are always around, eh? Well, I don’t need to tell you that that is crazy making in its own right.

We have to roll with the times, right? Well, destroying the physical work place was not a result of a natural evolution. It was implemented due to a totally fabricated “emergency” and really has no reality or basis beyond that. Yet here it is to stay. Why is that? While you ponder that one I’ll list a few more things that make this a dicey idea, especially as it evolves into something much more sinister than it is starting out as.

My list: Isolation. Tendency to work too much for too long of a stretch. No creative interaction with other employees. Lack of camaraderie. Less changing stimuli. Friends. Meeting members of the opposite sex. Too much time at home (no separation between work and home.) Image of work as prison. Big Brother watching electronically. Fewer humans to laugh with. Less opportunity to integrate with the culture.

There are a lot more…give some more in the comments.

I’ll say it again; it isn’t all that bad yet. But all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Even though you might have more of a chance to goof off if working at home, most people say the work there is much more intense than at the office.

The sort of “play” one encounters at the work place is subtle, but it is psychologically healthier: interaction with other humans on breaks, stretching your legs with a walk around the office and mingling with different stimuli, going to lunch with the gang, etc. Choosing what to wear every day. What all this will eventually evolve into is anyone’s guess, so if you think about that, be creative.

What you come up with is probably far less frightening than the reality that eventually faces us.

Work, what’s that?

”Work is the source of nearly all the misery in the world. Almost any evil you’d care to name comes from working or from living in a world designed for work. In order to stop suffering, we have to stop working.”

”Liberals say we should end employment discrimination. I say we should end employment. Conservatives support right-to-work laws. Following Karl Marx’s wayward son-in-law Paul Lafargue I support the right to be lazy. Leftists favor full employment. Like the surrealists — except that I’m not kidding — I favor full unemployment. Trotskyists agitate for permanent revolution. I agitate for permanent revelry. But if all the ideologues (as they do) advocate work — and not only because they plan to make other people do theirs — they are strangely reluctant to say so. They will carry on endlessly about wages, hours, working conditions, exploitation, productivity, profitability. They’ll gladly talk about anything but work itself. These experts who offer to do our thinking for us rarely share their conclusions about work, for all its saliency in the lives of all of us. Among themselves they quibble over the details. Unions and management agree that we ought to sell the time of our lives in exchange for survival, although they haggle over the price. Marxists think we should be bossed by bureaucrats. Libertarians think we should be bossed by businessmen. Feminists don’t care which form bossing takes so long as the bosses are women. Clearly these ideology-mongers have serious differences over how to divvy up the spoils of power. Just as clearly, none of them have any objection to power as such and all of them want to keep us working.”

I retired early.

Sometimes, I talk to normal people with jobs.

They all say the same things.

They all toe the line. Some more than others, but toe the line they do.

I think I’ve worked it out.

It’s all fear.

Fear of losing their job, their house, their car, their friends, their social standing, their partner, the list goes on.

WFH, instead of freeing you up, actually makes you MORE vulnerable. Because you are remote you don’t have those small reassurances from bosses and colleagues.

It’s not until you can isolate yourself from many of these threats that you can really assess what’s going on around you.

Until recently their compliance was a bit of a mystery, I’d been watching them from my little bubble. Self-sufficiently getting more and more cynical of the ‘system’.

Then it hit me – the manufactured inflation was going to affect ME !!

I had made my plans and now those plans were in danger. Can I afford the gas, electric, food bills anymore?

Suddenly, I was one of the normals again. I shared their fear.

“They” really are bastards. Very clever bastards, but bastards none the less.

I don’t know, is working for another a natural condition of human existence?. Cooperation, companionship and coexistence yes. If community work together as in hunter gatherers, planting, cropping, building up a safe and happy productive community then this is done for the betterment of all. To work for someone by giving over our time and commitment to enable them to become more productive and therefore richer. But while keeping the rest of us in a state of near poverty and by expecting us to give more and more of ourself over to this one sided arrangement, not so much.

Over generations humans have been conditioned to believe in this new normal work ethic. It has come at the loss of many other human needs, commitments and expressions. Such as creativity and self relience. It has eroded our sense of family responsibilities. Duties like caring for our elderly and our children are instead handed over to the state. And look where this has led us. Especially tragic during the barbaric COVID lock downs.

It has enabled those of wealth to become ever richer and own ever more, becoming ever more powerful. Fixing prices of everything so that those who have not, have no other choice but to give over their time and commitment in order to survive. It has reduced us to a worth connected only to our education level and our job.

There is a big difference between a vocation and the soulless mind numbingly pittence pay of plain old hard labour. It is a choice to work from home that is not even possible for those who arguably contribute most to the day to day functioning of society. And who are often ironically the ones paid the least.

I agree that we are being set up and what is happening in the new normal is the latest planned reform of those setting the agenda. There is indeed money to be saved by not maintaining office space etc.
And many people especially those able to WFH have been so well indoctrinated into this work ethic that they no longer even need the watchful eye of the boss hovering over them.

This will undoubtedly be yet another
manipulation of people and become a greater exploitation tool. As was the enclosure system that forced so many people into working for the man in the first place. The ability to exploit peasents and force them into employ by starving them of their self sufficiency. Who before the stripping away of the common land and rights to erect property before break of dawn enabled people to feed themselves and work vocationally as part of and in maintaining community. Thus forcing them into employment in the newly built factories and satanic mills of the industrial revolution. By taking control of the food chain and conditioning future generations into the concept of employment as the new norm. This latest step may again include housing owned by the employer. Linking up with the own nothing and be happy.

If we need to look at the pitfalls before us. We should be aware of those that were imposed on us in the first place.
Change comes when we see our true selves not those imposed on us by our overlords. When we free ourselves from mental slavery. To quote Bob Marley.

Hello Kathy: Excellent comment and insight. Your opening question: “I don’t know, is working for another a natural condition of human existence?”

No. And absolutely no. Working for the benefit of someone “else” is slavery, period. You’ve already specified the conditioning mechanisms, so good on ya.

Industrial slavery has been replaced by post-industrial servitude. Let’s watch the disaster unfolding on our stupid plastic cell phones and snack on genetically altered potato chips…

Kathy, Huxley’s “Brave new world” offers an answer to your question.

Alphas, betas, gammas, deltas, and epsilons were literally bred for different roles with the epsilons doing any donkey work.

Of course, Huxley’s caste system was the result of eugenics but have we really achieved a society so different to that portrayed in the book ?

Not by messing around directly with hormones, DNA or genes but by a slow process of normalisation of hierarchy.

One extremely big problem is that many if not most people take their identity, their very sense of self, from their society. There may be a certain practical value to society from such a source of self-identity; but it puts the individual at a disadvantage in that it prompts him to disregard his own self for the sake of the “greater good.”

And if the values of a particular society get corrupted (as they have today), then the dynamic inevitably produces broken people as surely as the old Chinese custom of binding girls’ feet.

Todd, the people you’re discussing only make up a small fraction of the total proletarian/agri-peasantry workers who actually keep all the functions of organised human life going, with all their great panoply of nitty-gritty, mucky-handed, out-on-the-job morlock work: the sort of constant daily effort that keeps society working. None of their work can be done ‘from home’. That’s strictly for that small percentage of the total work-force who are – in ‘normal’ times – office/managerial plankton. (How, for example, are the grid-maintenance workers going to repair the current widespread Winter damage to NAmerica’s power lines, ‘from home’…?)

To get a clear picture of why the WEFoids’ sick fantasy of a startrekkytechietechie (sttt) dystopia has absolutely zero chance of ever happening (especially the particularly demented nightmares of the full-on harari-delusionals) you need only digest the ultra-hard facts put forward so starkly by Chris Martenson, of ‘Peak Prosperity’ and ‘The Crash Course’, in this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VOiHA6NiqZU

When digesting Chris’s information, keep in mind that the current electronic information-chomping technology of the proto-surveillance state is only kept going by the our present brief, ruinous, and absolutely unsustainable electricity splurge, that the global internet/telecoms system requires as it’s essential lifeblood. Likewise, the mining and refining of exotic minerals for maintaining the electronic-information/surveillance apparat also require vast amounts of fossil-hydrocarbon energy (for which there is literally zero credible replacement anywhere on the horizon) to keep going at all: No diesel, no mining; no furnace fuels, no refining. And fossil-hydrocarbons supply, never forget, is right now on its ‘bumpy plateau’, just before sliding away permanently from its all-time peak.

For a vivid fictional depiction of the real future towards which we’re heading, you can’t do much better than this futurist novel by John Michael Greer:

https://witchesandpagans.com/pagan-culture-blogs/bookmusings/spotlight-on-star-s-reach.html

These two publications – alone – explain why sttt simply can’t happen on this planet much or for long (and why we shan’t be going to any other planets; and yes, there are serious, credible doubts that any human has yet been even to the Moon). What our real future here on Earth is most probably going to be like is depicted strikingly in JMGreer’s novel; unless you want to believe in some sort of deus ex machina event, such as the discovery and purification of Startrek-Scottie’s tri-lithium crystals, for example, whateverTF they are!  😆  :

https://witchesandpagans.com/pagan-culture-blogs/bookmusings/spotlight-on-star-s-reach.html

These things being so, I don’t think we need to worry too much about the wholly transient phenomenon of ‘working from home’ (for a few), whilst it still happens to be around for just a small percentage of the world’s Pampered Twenty Percent (people like us).

Interesting how ‘working from home’ really rather relies on computer, digital, brave new world sort of work, which most of us have been pushed into regardless of our work type. Rural mediaeval life was pretty much all working from home, but within the context of what I would call ‘real’ life. Industrialization during the late 18th and 19th centuries saw everyone ‘going off the work’ somewhere other than their homes, and this latest iteration of the hive can only be achieved because of the digital world. Chuck your phone away, take a lump hammer to the computer and get back to real life, where working from home is a fully alive and integrated socially economically viable, ‘real’ option. Real LIfe!

But pre the enclosure system’s total erosion of common laws at the birthing of the industrial revolution. The people still held certain land rights. These ancient rights enabled an existence that was not totally beholden to the landowners. This made food, clothing and accommodation possible without the need to give all ones time and energy to the overlords.

Spot on Todd.

I started a company and worked from home. I was lucky as once I had my orders via the ‘voice recorder’, I was able to get out of the ‘office’ see customers and do deliveries. As the company grew, and the staff compliment got larger, I felt my space at home being invaded – coming home to finally put ones feet up and have a lager just was not happening. Always something to do, like spending your vacation at home – never really rest as the darn house/garden always needs attention.

Was ever so happy that the staff got too big to be accommodated at home and invested in office premises where I now had to travel. Having worked in the corporate world for a few years, this was not a problem (always left for work very early). I was to all intents my own time keeper and as long as I brought in the moolah and grew my customer base, I only had to report to the office for the Friday ‘meeting’ which was a booze up after half an hour or so. Then we once a month went out for a company dinner – no spouses. Ahh, the good old days.

Home once again became our refuge from the hard work done in the office. Braai and swim or just chill.

Navigating this weird world we now find ourselves in is tough. South Africa is finished as a cohesive (Rainbow) country.

As an example the government announced that we would not have the usual blackout on Christmas day. What a treat and the ANC’s hubris know no bounds.

All the best for 2023.

Working from home all the time is generally not a good thing for the individual or society. In a way work remained one of those areas that resisted the destruction of community which has taken place over the past 40 years. In fact it seemed to replace it for a lot of people but that too now is under threat. It’s important not to look at things just from your own short term perspective. I know I have a weakness for that too. I personally hate working from home all the time as I am now, although it does allow me to care for my mum which might be difficult if I was going into an office every day, although perhaps some time away from my mum and talking to other humans during the day might do me good. I think it probably would and I would make some other arrangements for my mum and she would probably benefit from being around others other than me.

The old saying you don’t know what you’ve lost until it’s gone or something like that has never been truer. Of course many people can’t work from home, they have to physically go somewhere to perform their job. But many jobs can be performed remotely and the powers that shouldn’t be want to push as many of us into isolation pods as they can.

There are many reasons WFH all the time is not a good thing:

  • lack of camaraderie support (zoom calls/online chats are poor replacements)
  • coffee/lunch breaks with colleagues for non work related chats/gossip/to laugh
  • lack of break from family even if you love them sometimes it’s needed!
  • a further curtailment of a social situation in which you could form friendships/relationships
  • some people do more things with their lives when they are forced to leave the house (not everyone has great self discipline)
  • Mental health can suffer for some people, especially for those without other forms of social support/contact (not everyone has a great social life outside of work, sadly for some people it can be their only form of social contact)
  • It’s easier to spot colleagues who are experiencing work problems/mental health issues face to face
  • We are social creatures and generally we crave social interaction however much some people try and deny this, it’s fundamental to our nature

there are numerous more these are just a few.

There are some times in my life that I’ve hated going into the office, even dreaded it, thankfully these have been few, more than anything I’ve met some wonderful people through work who I wouldn’t have met ordinarily, some remain, long term friends, even though we are separated by distance now and yes I’ve also had some great relationships at work and seen others do the same. Work is just a place where people congregate (or used to) sometimes the actual work is irrelevant, it’s the people coming together bit that’s important.

One of the most important reasons this is being implemented is that companies get away more easily with pay cuts, burdening employees with extra work and even unlawful activities if the employees are more isolated and sometimes even don’t know each other at all. I’ll put it like this: If these things are being implemented, it is much more likely that employees will organize and resist if they are in physical contact. Someone will be pissed or know labour laws and speak up in the meeting, or the word will spread through chatter. In a “zoom” meeting? Not so much. And even if someone speaks up and says no, he can always be muted by the manager

There have been a couple of odd deaths around our workplace. Both involved young folk. A woman working in residential care lost her son to a heart attack and one of my colleagues had a similarly bereaved friend.

Meanwhile I note the ongoing saga of celebrities whose health is failing or who have died where the reason for the illness/ death is not given.

It is terrifying how the media can just so casually throw this stuff out and few are concerned. Few even notice. Each celebrity death feels like another farewell to the old “happy time”.

Perhaps there is a truth in that Chitty Chitty Bang Bang bit about the child catcher? We are all imprisoned children who have been kept entertained up till now. But the show is winding down now.

In March 2020 I started a new job. Despite the lockdown, I had the option to come into the office, which I jumped at. Commuting brought mostly enjoyable random social interactions, but in the office there were only a handful of coworkers for the first year or so. When neawrly everyone came back,it was lmost festive for a minute. But soon came harsh mask enforcement,and a mandatory jab rule. I managed to wriggle a medical exemption but became a pariah,banned to attend meetings by video and earning insults and condemnation from previously friendly colleagues. I questioned whether working “together” in the face of such hostility could really be considered collaborative, or desirable.

A month ago, I quit to go freelance. I now work at home and we’ll see how that goes. I am incredibly sad that I will never go back to a “normal” workplace again but it’s worse to think about ever again having to struggle to assert my personal dignity just to get a paycheck.

Yes, and those who still cling to the belief that the (Western) judiciary and the “Rule of Law” is the last, best hope for achieving (or restoring) justice should take notice of the dismal trend of triers of fact– mostly judges, but sometimes juries– routinely convicting such entrapment victims and imposing draconian sentences.

Besides isolated entrapment operations like the Whitmer affair, the Stalinesque show trials of the “January 6th Insurrectionists” feature a string of appropriately abjectly repentant “convicted criminals” expressing fervent remorse as they’re led down the latest Trail of Tears to serve their harsh sentences. 😡

I think it depends on what kind of person you are whether work from home is good for you or not.

More than being able to raid the fridge, take a nap?! (only babies take day-time naps), avoid traffic stop-and-gos and wear PJs, you can do your domestic chores and errands during the working week and have the weekend truly free. Plus you don’t have a boss breathing down your neck – worth a million dollars! You can exercise at whatever time you want and don’t have to get up at 5am to get it done before work. Your mobile connectivity allows you the freedom to talk to co-workers or customers from whatever location, including a cafe or the local park.

Moreover, from years ago, I learned that I can get the same work load done at home as previously in an office setting but in half the time.

If you’re the kind of person who needs constant crowd input and feedback, then a home office probably isn’t for you. If you like to make your own decisions, are disciplined and motivated, a home office job is a dream.

Yes, it is the type of person you are. It suited me quite well when I worked 2 days before I retired. Back then my employer, like control freaks were doing everything to limit it – now I hear many work home 5 days. Ridiculous situation and the author makes some good points about the bigger picture. One thing I do remember is I often hated going into the office because it got so woke and days were spent in pointless meetings.

I’ve put a long comment in which is now in pending which is a shame since this is meant as a supplement. Lockdown was essential to the covid psy-op. It meant the forcible isolation of everyone from everyone else so that everyone could be separately programmed. And once we had all been permitted out of our pens to reform community, the nature of the public psyche had been irrevocably altered. It’s as if we had adopted the outlook of the traumatised child. The spring of 2020 now appears as the last gasp of that confident consumerist society where everyone could feel certainty that the basic functions would be attended to and that it could all continue. Now we have been terrorised into an ever threatening instability where we have been made to feel that our only option if we want to survive is to keep our heads down and do as we’re told.

Yes, I agree. I was just thinking about that today. Ah the blissful naivety before 2020! I had absolutely no concerns (besides financial) that I’d have any issues with regularly being allowed to travel to see my family back in Oz (I live in Europe) and had lots of ideas and hopes for my life…but now I’m feeling very tentative and am genuinely concerned that things will clamp down again within these next few years. This doesn’t alleviate my homesickness and I’m not sure what to do. Bastards!

Lockdowns helped immensely with divide and conquer as well. Now we hear the chorus of those poor, poor souls who must return to the office – no lunchtime yoga, no mid day walk, no working in their pajamas anymore, no one home to receive the latest Amazon delivery…. They’ll bitch and moan about having to return, without taking one second to realize just how many people had to be “out in it” the entire time they were sitting at home collecting a paycheck. The very definition of privilege IMHO.

They’ll scream bloody murder at those who refuse the shot, not even bothering to listen to the MSM stooges they revere that the damned thing does not “protect them” one iota. Programmed behavior indeed. When you remind them that our world DOES NOT WORK without people actually going to work and leaving their homes, they look at you like you’re from another planet, or they smirk at you with that smug all knowing look and say “why don’t those people just find jobs from home?” How dumb do they have to be to see that isn’t possible? Well, dumb enough to take a shot they know nothing about, and to wear a face mask when completely alone and outside in the cold….

This phenomenon marches more to the drum of “the agenda,” and as such there is plenty to worry about.
Exactly what that looks like I can’t say, but watch the Bruce Willis film “Surrogates” to get a little taste of it.

Well phrased. Surrogates is not far from reality. The technology is already there, they just need people to accept it, and someone to lead them into it.

Its easy to see how they are pushing for the people to line up behind Musk as some sort of champion. They act like he’s a champion of free speech, like he’s cleaning out Twitter and attacking Fauci. He is, however, imaged and advertised to the people.

It is Musk who was chosen to put Star-Link (the grid) into space, and it is Musk who runs NeuraLink. He is all in with the Internet of Bodies, which will connect people’s brains with the grid through carbon nanotubes and electrodes. Star-Link connecting with Neura-Link.

Here is what is posted on the Neuralink webpage titled “The Link”:

The Link

We’re aiming to design a fully implantable, cosmetically invisible brain-computer interface to let you control a computer or mobile device anywhere you go.
Micron-scale threads would be inserted into areas of the brain that control movement. Each thread contains many electrodes and connects them to an implant called the “Link.”

It won’t stop there though. The “trodes” will interact with biosensors and field effect transistors made from carbon nanotubes (CNTs – these already exist and can grow along neurons).

Put a few CNTs in the movement and speech regions of the brain and who knows, maybe they could use “trodes” to operate a person. Rand Corp has already outlined cameras that sit inside the eye, so add them into the mix and it may be possible to use a human like a video game character.
At the very least, they would be able to affect mood. The biosensors I’ve seen pictures of were designed with a coronaphase for nitric oxide, which is a neural signaling peptide. Meaning, they would be able to detect when someone is angry, sad, or happy and possibly influence their activity in the brain. ““You’ll Own Nothing, and You’ll be Happy.”

Not likely that they get people to volunteer for the enslavement implants. I imagine that there would have to be some significant deception, coercion or force involved with public uptake. Not hard to see scripted world “events” leading to it.

Surrogates would be scary, but it may be closer than we think.

Talk of working from home brought back the whole beginning of this covid coup. And how deviously effective it was. In my own work it happened so fast. I had been warned about the covid crap in advance from OffG and I will always be grateful for the fact that this site prepared me – though, to be sure, I doubt if I would have fell for the bull anyway.

So I was ready for a lockdown though even then the speed at which it all developed was remarkable. There was a few rumblings from the boss, some sage noddings from the staff, one who muttered that it may be a load of crap and then, all in the space of perhaps three days, we were out. The boss made sure we all had our little packs of hand wash, gloves, masks etc. There was even some rumblings about how we could access some paracetamol etc. You’d honestly think all services and goods had suddenly dried up everywhere. That was the general atmosphere being created.

It all seems to have been managed to generate maximum anxiety. And when I went to the shops, the feeling was even more tense. Though, it being spring and quite warm, there was an incongruous holiday feeling as well. A truly weird time – surreal, unstable.

Then the bizarre fiasco of “working from home”. We had laptops assigned to us. Not that that was suitable since we were all employed in a day centre for disabled adults so it was always supposed to be a social job. So it involved phone calls, check-ups, farting around with social media to generate a “virtual service” – which was an exceedingly poor substitute.

Then I was reallocated to residential work which, by its nature always had to be provided. At every step of the way through this, I kept following OffG and other areas of the net to get an alternative to the endless porno fear wankery of the media. And I desperately wanted to talk to someone about it – not just typing into comment threads. But there was no-one who was “on my wavelength”. Those I tried to talk to invariably denounced me as a “conspiracy nut”. I envisioned any number of conversations that could have taken place in the work had it continued to operate as usual. And it struck me that there could have been positive influence that I could have exerted on the others – not by deliberate confrontation but by bringing up observation of oddities that may have worked on their critical capacity. I sometimes thought of engaging them on the phone or through the net but I could never imagine broaching the topic under those conditions.

And this is the brilliance of the lockdown manoeuvre. When face-to-face communication is removed, almost everything is lost. Everyone is isolated from everyone else and at the mercy of the media. Of course they can choose alternative channels but, even if they do, then they are always painfully aware that these are “marginal channels” and the wretched mainstream media is the “central channel” for the vast majority. It is this “realm of Big Brother” that has the centre stage and it is that which you must compete with.

And then came the vile “Left” sites where the big ones all soon revealed their true nature as spook sites. And the little ones were cowardly dupes. When the vax poison first got shoved at everyone, I recall trying to engage Philip Roddis into a discussion of it. This would have been the right time for truly dissident sites to try and project some kind of solidarity against what was clearly a brutally coercive chemical invasion of bodies. I’ll never forget Philip’s response. He said he was “too busy thinking of other things” (?!) but offered to allow me a slot on his site if I were to write my own article! In short, I would have been another lone voice on a soapbox. That’s not what I wanted. I wanted conversation, dialogue, mutual reinforcement of defiance.

So then our centre opened up again but I was still in the residential sector. And there was a period of alienation with that – also new staff coming in who I never got to meet.

Eventually, I was reinstated in the centre but with those ridiculous “bubbles” whereby we were all strictly confined to certain areas. All very stupid. At this point, I was forcibly made aware of how the covid sickness, i.e. the psychological sickness, had penetrated so deeply into others. And I knew that even any subtle remark about the falsity of it all would not make any impression. The pathways of public discourse had been well and truly set in stone.

And so we come up to date. And what a strange situation it is. It’s as if no-one believes in covid as The Big Deadly Thing anymore and how “It’s something we’re just going to have to learn to live with now – just like the flu!”. “That’s because it was the fucking flu all along!” I feel like screaming. I have even made my views openly occasionally but got a very hostile response. There’s a certain hypocrisy in this response. It seems to go, “Well they’re exaggerating it now but they weren’t at the beginning!” or “They made mistakes” etc.

Perhaps the single most dismal thing is that when these stupid lateral flow tests give a positive, everyone still flies into a panic – or at least they are majorly concerned – and this is so even when they have no symptoms! (Though I note with a grim amusement how they can manage to convince themselves that they have lost their sense of smell!)

Considered purely as Machiavellian strategy, the entire covid coup was brilliant.

Lockdown has been applied shock doctrine for global economic warfare, strategy previously practiced on lesser scales by disaster capitalism to create opportune crisis for restructuring forces and relations of production. Laptop professionals may burrow into their work from home to consider consequences for themselves, while forgetting varied effects for others, amid general effect of destroying work for vast numbers to facilitate the largest-ever transfer of wealth, or theft of resources, to the owning class.

Human labor is largely irrelevant in the post-industrial digital (c)age of techofeudalism into which we’re being engineered with catch-22 ‘choices’, such as being replaced by a robot or becoming one, if not simply disposed of as a useless eater. The death march of capital rule in the new abnormal world order is taking us into control grids of a prison planet in permanent lockdown. Un(der)employment to UBI to credit scores and so on for some. Home offices hooked into the internet of things and bodies for others. A dead end for all as we variously scramble to survive the transition, like so many lab rats in mazes our masters have laid down for us.

If anything, home life is in its final stage of destruction. Long captive to capital as ‘free’ time for necessary maintenance of the work force, leisure for labor has been so overtaken by market forces commodifying life in consumer society as to already have lost much of its cultural autonomy in familial and communal relations, particularly via electronic technologies. Whether by means of work bringing the panopticon home or digital implants wherever we are, the last boundary lines between private and public realms of existence are being erased.

The masses of us share common interest in fighting the future unfolding. But to do so, we will have to rise up across the basic divide-and-rule control over the divisions of labor. We will have to relearn and reclaim class consciousness if we are to have any chance of meeting, and defeating, the class war we are in.

It isn’t just “home life.” Human civilization is on its last leg. Humans have continued doing what they have always done and even though it has never worked, they kept trying.

First they put all their eggs in the God/King basket; then they took their eggs out and put them in the King basket; then, sensing a drift from overt hierarchy, they stuck all their eggs in the Mercantile basket – which is where they’ve been ever since.

Now the Mercantile is about to go bust. Problem is, it’s been so successful that there’s nothing else waiting in the wings; no basket to put their eggs in. So their eggs will sit there gathering greenback dust till they all rot.

No system should ever be so successful that there’s nowhere else to go should it fail. And make no mistake: it is failing, big time. When those who run the system start talking about turning people into machines, you know how completely, utterly bankrupt they are.

That’s a good point — but often overlooked.

Look no further than Canada, where euthanasia is popularised and offered as an economical medical option for the downtrodden.

“So working at home is a dream come true, eh?”

I got lucky.I Practiced the new interview techniques, and got the job at the age of 45, only a few miles from my home (Computer Techy stuff)

The first thing they did, was too install all this ISDN comms stuff in my home and a pc and gave me this pager thing and a laptop and a new analogue mobile phone..(digital not quite ready)

And told me – this bit of the system is your job – and all these contractors are reporting to you….they are doing the mobile bit…

So I said Hi Guys, and introduced myself…Apparently I am doing the UNIX stuff, but didn’t have a clue. They slung me a book UNIX101 for dummies. We got on well.

But I was allowed to work from home when my bleeper went off.

It was only computer shit…

and then you find yourself working from home a lot of the time, but going into work at a moment’s notice, when it all fucks up, and the system is down. (This does not go down well with a very large number of customers)

To be honest it was a lot of fun, most of the time, but being on-call even when on holiday
if anything went wrong, was a bit stressful.

Even tougher, if its your own small business, and your customers can’t pay their bills, cos they got jabbed, and lost their jobs and then lives.

Anyhow CJ Hopkins is My Journalist of The Year 2022

And Dr. Mike Yeadon Man of The Year since 2020

“Dear everyone, who is nervously looking around and is asking “What the hell is going on?”
I hope this isn’t too controversial. It’s certainly frightening, but I believe we are still on the right side of disaster & if enough of us become aware of what is happening here & everywhere in the democratic world, we can recover the situation. We really don’t have long. I believe it’s likely things will change irretrievably over this coming winter. Hence this urgent and unusual request.
Everything that’s happened and is happening becomes much simpler and it all makes sense, only when you force yourself to think the impossible.
If you experimentally adopt the position that OUR GOVERNMENT IS ACTIVELY WORKING TO HARM US, TO DISMANTLE MODERN SOCIETY & ENSLAVE ALL PEOPLE IN A DIGITALLY CONTROLLED TOTALITARIAN WORLD, it all fits. Nothing is surplus.

Even if your immediate response is that this is absurd, please try it for a day or so.

I ask you further to adopt the experimental position that the media, controlled by just six global corporations, all allied to a single global organization you’ve all heard of, is relentlessly lying to you and has been doing so for over 2.5 years. Same for the internet, controlled by fewer global corporations, also all allied to that same global organization.

Because I am certain it’s true. I am certain because this all started with a scientific fraud relating to a virus, augmented it with a relentless campaign of fear, imposed measures known to be useless, which wrecked the economy and smashed civil society, then coerced most to accept useless, unnecessary, ineffective and deliberately dangerous injections. Obviously, this is an odious crime. Nothing like it has ever happened.
I’ve been 41 years in life sciences from training to successful biotech CEO and was worldwide research head and Vice President of Pfizer’s respiratory unit (1995-2011).

I have absolutely no incentive to say any of this if I wasn’t certain.

I am certain. This all took place “in my wheelhouse”, my domain of expertise.

Please consider what I’ve said.
’’I’ve given over 70 interviews, all censored. I’ve been foully smeared. It’s propaganda. It tells you what they’re capable of.

Here’s what Pfizer’s former board member wrote about my accomplishments:
Turning Pfizer Discards Into Novartis Gold: The Story Of Ziarco

Do I sound like a fool?

Many have asked why people didn’t resist tyrants in the past. Partly it is fear. But it’s more than that. It’s that normal people, like you and me, simply cannot imagine being so evil. We trust in humanity. And so we should. Most people are good. Few are truly terrifyingly horrible. But some are. It’s the inability to believe it’s happening that really stopped people objecting when they should, when the evidence was unmistakable but had not yet quite reached their door, their family.
They are coming for you and your children. It is happening again. There’s ample evidence emerging of long-term, patient planning. I’m so sorry.
It’s now up to you. I genuinely don’t see what else I can do.

Best wishes & sincere thanks,
Dr. Michael Yeadon

As the saying goes Todd these are first world problems. Or in our culture middle class problems.

For those who actually ‘do the work’ the luxury of wfh passed them by. And the managers were playing exactly the same game as their staff. They lost the ‘authority’ to manage because they were equally idle. Its enjoyable listening to the things these people did over lockdown including building extensions.

This is the entitled generation. The group who will generally not look beyond their selfish interests to concern about things may effect others, particularly when it was this group implementing all the rules. So I’m a little short on sympathy. The delivery drivers, the builders, the railway workers etc were simply left to get on with servicing the entitled class while their jobs along with all the small business’ etc remained at peril?

Covering the mental health ‘angle’ I would much prefer an article discussing the impact to those who don’t get their information from the MSM and maybe spend a little too much time researching?

That is every bit as isolating if not more so because when certain facts are understood and its possible to put things into a different context the world is never the same again.

How do you then engage with ‘everyday folk’ when you know pretty much everything on offer is fake? At least as far as the MSM is concerned.

‘ How do you then engage with ‘everyday folk’ when you know pretty much everything on offer is fake?’

This is problematic. I try every once in a while to make people see, but what usually happens when I try is… literally nothing (like to taking to comatose people), or simply: panic (people who can’t handle the truth). Nevertheless, I have seen some breakthrough cases, showing me that people know more than they express and are not as stupid as I thought. Those cases make my day (so I keep on trying).

The ultimate weapon to set people free, is the vaxx. It is a sword that has two blades (Dutch expression, not sure if it’s English). The killing and maiming from vaxx is definitely there. This truth is exposed in the lengthy ways the government wants to prevent people from seeing the event through data… but who needs data when he or his loved one suffers or died from the vaxx? – It’s there and can’t be ignored. Since it can’t be ignored, especially by those who were coerced or stupid enough to take the jab, it must set them free.

Either that or we are watching at the most gruesome Darwin Award ceremony since the beginning of time, which will ultimately lead to the same outcome (as unvaxxed already see), but which takes more time (which can be calculated if one knows the death rate from vaxx which seems to be around 1.2 times normal death rate).

I read somewhere a couple years ago that when coronavirus vaccines were initially tested on cats, and this was long before the clot shots by may have used mRNA, most if not all of the cats died in two years. Considering one human year equals roughly 5 cat years, we may have 10 years or so before the deaths become impossible to ignore.

Although, that said, I find most normies can ignore anything they choose not to see. Many have honed that skill over the last 2 years so even IF that happens in another 8 years or so, who knows if that will make a dent.

As pointed out by the likes of Parkinson and Orwell, there aren’t enough jobs in the modern world to keep everybody occupied. It’s therefore necessary to be both creative and destructive. But whereas the traditional solution has involved cataclysmic war, the modern approach is to create legions of damaged children. Of course, the established churches have a long history of creating damaged children and should rightly be considered experts in the matter. However, modern science makes the process vastly more efficient. What’s more, lots of adults now seem to be doing their bit!

One should look to rid themselves of such low pathetic positions. If you sit in a dog kennel all day answering calls from angry customers who are being short changed by the vile corporation you pledge your time to, perhaps it’s time to look for a different career.

Stop supporting these companies. Don’t purchase from them and don’t work for them.

Personally, I would rather work a manual job being productive for my local community, rather than work for one of these corporations who rule over you via a hierarchy system.

This is how they have managed to roll over most of us recently. All the corporations who sport the masonic logos are now infiltrated and run by the globalists. This is not to say the whole organisation is in on it, it just means the top echelons are in control. The hierarchy system takes care of the rest of the ranks by means of coercion. Speak out of turn and you’re sacked.

They called it “telecommuting” where i worked. For people who had long commutes (some 1 – 2.5 hrs each way), to reduce transportation congestion, to allow more family time and as convenience benefit to employees. But this was 1-2 days a week max. People mostly worked offline as the internet was just getting robust and took their workload home with them and worked on a computer and drafting tables. We also had the option of 4-10’s, four ten hour days, three days off. That was the best for me. As remote working started managers did not like not seeing employees work and did not trust productivity as honest. This to me is why it stopped. I found it to be just “out of the workflow” that changed daily, and only used it by request for personal needs for a day here and there. I had a section at the office with two members I supervised. We all did 4-10’s with Friday’s unstaffed, but all deadlines met. I would stay late all the time to make sure the Friday would be taken care of fully and the rest of the staff we supported not in need. We three absolutely loved 4-10’s. Once one switches from 4 to 5 days a week, life changes to an actual life. We did very little telecom, just as needed one day here and there.I think if humanity can reduce work to 3-4 days on 3-4 days off per week with short commutes, Life will replace Work, and telecommuting can be disposed of in most circumstances. We can see Goldman Sachs and the Banksters bring work back to office. Probably anxious managers feeling lack of control. but the real evil is the incarceration of Work schedules turning life from 25 to 65 a prison to escape. In my personal situation, i combined 4-10’s with a bike and train commute of about 2hrs each way. M-Th became commute, work, commute, sleep only, but i was fit as a fiddle, read plenty of books, and was completely down-stressed from a very stressful, high productivity office environment. And three day weekends were like reset vacations each week.
Less work, more play, that’s the Way… ! 🙂

“The Shutdown of “Luxury Emissions” Should Be at the Center of Climate Revolt
Climate disorder won’t be remedied through an orderly march of green energy. The world must also rein in consumption.

Seven hundred self-described “climate rebels” breached the chain-link fence surrounding Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, the world’s third-busiest hub for international passenger traffic, on November 5. With bolt cutters they opened holes in the fence and poured in, some of them on bicycles, and raced across the tarmac. Others laid ladders against the 9-foot-high fence and topped it on foot.

They had to move quickly before military police, tasked with securing the airport, saw what was happening. …..”

Etc etc.

13 private jets were the target in “a perfectly tailored climate action…. the Schiphol action went for climate change’s jugular: self-indulgent carbon-spewing. It did so balletically, in the democratic and fuel-efficient motion of humans racing on foot or whirling about on bicycles. And ecologically: In the words of one participant, “We made sure that any planes could still land, because the last thing we wanted was for them to be unnecessarily flying for any longer than they already were.””

Makes ya proud, doesn’t it! Such scalpel like precision from a group of well-disciplined rebels! And they’re in a hurry too!

“Climate disorder won’t be remedied through an orderly march of green energy. … ramping up green energy alone won’t cut fossil fuel use quickly enough to meet the Paris warming limit of 1.5 degrees Celsius…. the climate movement must strike not just at pipelines and mines, but also at obscene wealth.”

Quite a tall order since obscene wealth tends to be …. well protected even against such deft and disciplined action! The Superrich and “luxury carbon” must be made to pay! Sit up and take notice!

Oh let’s cut the crap! True protests tend to be messy and brutally dealt with.  We’ve seen in no uncertain terms how “efficiently” the rulers can deal with protests that they truly want to crush. We’ve also seen how true protests are reported in the media – with relentless vitriol. Two words: Canadian Convoy.

The title of the link is a giveaway: “Here’s What a Climate Action Should Look Like”. Implication: Here’s What a Genuine Protest Never Looks Like! More to the point: Here’s How A Genuine Protest Is Never Reported.    

Schiphol is Showtime.

Home working is covered in a few of the following points, a list fo who won from Covid.

The CIA can make the WEF say what they want but the evidence points at the US and the CIA as being behind the Covid scam.

To understand who did this, just ask WHO GAINS? …….The CIA rolled out and accelerated the same Corporate fascist agenda that they have been running for the past 60 years. This is NOT new.
Covid was a CIA run operation for the US Corporate fascist state to:

Shut down small business, to increase Corporate market share.Shift all activities to US big tech, surveillance. state platforms: Meetings, communications etc..Shift education onto google (CIA) platforms.Kill as many old & sick as possible for Insurance companies profits. Incentivise hospital murder.Provide justification for massive Increase in QE. Dollar protection/Dollar debasement.Increase size of surveillance state. Introduce Social credit score system, via covid apps.Transfer risk for all drugs to users from producers. (A la tesla ‘autonomous’ driving).Increase poverty. (incentivise work & reduced wages).Transfer wealth up to corporate oligarch elite.Increase social division.Destroy democracies & Test out Corporate fascist authoritarian rule..Subjugate important vassal states to CIA rule. (Shift Australia to dictatorship to keep US control in war with China).Blame the real left (socialists) for all of the above.Associate far-right ideology with their newly discovered love of freedom and liberty. The Covid winners,

Economic; big Corporations, Pharma, US tech giants, the Banks, insurance companies, healthcare. New private Education industry.State: The surveillance state, Authoritarian rule.Politically; the far rightThe Covid losers

Economic; small business, workers.State: DemocracyPolitically; the real socialist left.

I’ve concluded a while ago that most if not all inter-country wars are fake – real wars are just too inefficient; it would be much easier to infiltrate a country, rouse the people to start a civil war, then install someone as the new government, instead of manufacturing weapons,ships, tanks and planes, as well as training, feeding, housing soldiers etc etc. “Wars” are then started between two(or more) countries under control, so that the outcome is predetermined, and is simply a racket to extort money, and subsequently serve as the justification for the transfer of wealth.

We are being forced to work from home for two main reasons. Firstly it is akin to the gig economy, where costs for ‘office space’, computer equipment, heating, lighting etc is being shifted onto the employee. Like the gig economy shifted the costs of down time onto the Uber or delivery employee.
Secondly, it ensures that the US has access to all your internal meetings and discussions via their internet platforms. This applies more than anything else to competitor corporations, banks, governments, who the US want to take down. It makes the looting of vassal states easier.

Before working remote full time starting with “2 weeks to slow the spread” I had to drive into downtown Austin to sit at a desk in an office building and remote into Houston.

Its a fact that a lot of jobs involve sitting in a cube working on a computer for the entire work day, give or take a meeting or two. There’s also a whole lot of jobs that have to be done in person, the difference being that if you’re out driving a bus or digging a hole or working on an assembly line, something like that, you’re not available to write stuff on the Internet.

The one thing that’s going to derail working for home is likely to be that jurisdictions and businesses like to earn money from other businesses. In many parts of the US, for example, you’d need a permit to run a business (“work”) from home from the local authority and service providers like to charge business rates for data service. There’s nothing that be done about this for small scale informal work but once it gets formalized then you’ll be sure that lots of organizations would like a piece.

‘ the “why” of it’

To me: not so much the commuting or staying at home, but the content of the work is what work makes miserable.

Before 2020, I commuted a lot. Took a lot of time, but I didn’t care so much as I was doing useful work (I thought, bear with me..). The job I was in: clinical epidemiology…

Well, 2020 came along which was a BIG eye opener to me of how I was wasting my time.

Now I am no longer doing clinical epidemiology but… something else. I work from home, but still find it pretty difficult since the eye opening event of BS19 told me a lot. It’s this matrix kind of thing of red pilling, but then without a choice (I still don’t know exactly what made me see what BS19 really was. I remember some other commenters here at the days who also worked in the care environment (at least they said so, and I believed them) and couldn’t see through it). To me at least 95% of academic work is related to bullshit and the difficult task is to find the remaining 5% of useful work that there (maybe) is…

Anyway, enough about that.

In terms of the zooming events vs the live events at work, I heartily agree with the author. Zooming events are amongst the most dreadful events I can think of. It’s like watching tv, but where you can’t off the set altogether and must follow the stream of computerlight which your brain transforms in a colleague… To me it’s like my EEG falls flat during zoom: can’t remember what is said, but it still takes a lot of energy and at the end of the zooming day: you’re exhausted.

At least at live meetings I always got the chance to look at non-verbal reactions, or silently gossip with colleagues about… something else or even got the chance to eat my free lunch. You know, you still got the chance to interact. With zoom there is nothing of that.

One reason for working from home is decreased costs. You need less office space, fewer floors, less Wi-Fi hot spots, fewer cleaners. These costs matter for some companies.

As for the bigger picture, it seems that middle class Western society consists of university educated people selling services to each other. Their work is only sideways related to reality, and so if the quality of their work drops, it has little effect. The feeling of “getting paid to do nothing” is widespread.

Arnold Toynbee called the “middle class” the “internal proletariat”. Like the citizens of Rome during the Roman empire. The internal proletariat is still integrated in the social structure of the imperial society, but its functions are mostly virtual, and have no real part. The ruling class needs to feed and entertain them (bread and games, or malls and consoles.) The Romans extended citizenship to more and more people, our ruling class encourages immigration.

Working at home could precipitate a “drop in creativity?” Really? “Creativity?” In the workplace? Never gonna happen for most workers. The drones are not allowed to be creative or come up with alternate ways of doing things – that’s the exclusive prerogative of the Corporate Office: top down hierarchy.

On the other hand, working in a little cubicle in a big office gives one glorious advantage over working from home: the thought that “one day” the grind will finally be over and the drones won’t have to get up at dawn and worm their way through rush hour traffic.

As an afterthought, after having been retired for over ten years, I’m still amazed that the company I worked for (a private education conglomerate which had a virtual teaching set up all those years ago) regularly had to fire teachers for tardiness and absenteeism. Teachers who WORKED FROM HOME were fired for being late or not showing up for work!

Ah, I remember when the state agency that employed me installed modular “cubicle” work stations in our field offices, c. 1995. BTW, all of those offices are now long-extinct, as the state transitioned to call center and Internet based “service delivery”. 

I was on the Regional staff, and accompanied groups of supervisory staff on visits to pilot offices displaying the new furnishings.

One manager was thrilled, even radiant, when she saw the Brave New World setup. It was much like this photo, which is what prompted the memory.

I still remember her ecstatically exclaiming with delight that, at last, “her” office’s physical layout would sensibly promote diligence and efficiency by discouraging, if not altogether preventing, office staff from relaxing and “talking to each other” all day instead of working.

If there was a down side, she didn’t see it!
