After COVID, Never Again

American Thinker:
By J.B. Shurk

Two years ago, how many people would have predicted that tennis’s number one ranked player would be banned from competing in Australia and France for refusing to allow their governments to decide what is injected into his body?  How many people would have predicted the construction of internment camps to house citizens who similarly refuse to comply?  How many would have predicted that national leaders of “democratic” countries would demand censorship of dissenting points of view?  How many would have predicted that tech and media companies would eagerly jump at those calls for censorship by actively deleting from the public square any voices contrary to the official narratives sanctioned by those in power?  

Whatever threat to human health the China Virus poses, it has been dwarfed by the threats to peace, stability, and freedom caused by two years of government tyranny run amok.  For people who either never experienced the authoritarianism practiced by dictatorships abroad or stubbornly believed that the “leaders” of “free” nations would be somehow immune to the corrupting influence of power, these two years have hopefully been a wake-up call.  If and when we get on the other side of this COVID-1984 war against citizens, “never again,” must take on a new, additional meaning that includes peoples’ resolute promise never to allow their governments to embrace totalitarianism in the names of “health” and “security.”  Take this shameful moment in the history of nation-states once committed to liberty and use it to advantage by teaching your children and grandchildren how quickly freedom can be smothered by politicians and bureaucrats with “the best of intentions.” 

All of this leads to a damning question: why have so few people with power stood up during these last two years to call out this COVID-1984 madness for what it is — the greatest and most organized attack on human freedom in nearly a century?  Yes, voices have been censored in ways once unthinkable in the West.  Sure, companies have worked hand-in-glove with governments to intimidate, punish, and mock dissenters.  It is true that part of the reason for the success of Wu-Flu totalitarianism is that a large portion of the population actually clamored for governments to strip them of their rights and dominate their lives in a “bargain” for personal survival as shortsighted as any ever made with the devil.  What is sometimes overlooked, however, is that no system created by humans is capable of protecting freedom without constant pushback from the people whose freedom is at stake.  Even people still in possession of some lingering virtue find it difficult to sustain a sense of right and wrong in the halls of government.  Political bureaucracy, by its nature, drains morality from its workforce.

Human life as just a number

Every human life matters.  The problem is that government work teaches the opposite lesson — that life is just a numbers game.  Consider a small-town mayor in rural America.  Far from the swamp in D.C., that official is still forced to make decisions that will statistically lead to someone’s death.  Perhaps the choice of how to spend limited local tax dollars is between adding a traffic light and celebrating the harvest in the town square.  Choosing the latter may one day lead to an unnecessary automobile death, while choosing the former may diminish the mayor’s re-election hopes.  Government actors learn quickly that small decisions have unintended life-or-death consequences.   read more

  1. Never again should be followed by rounding up the bad actors and blowing their goddamned heads off. Hell, raffle off chances to the citizens for a chance to pull the trigger. It might not be the most civil thing to do, but fuck ’em…the perpetrators of this traded in their civility, much less their humanity, long ago. No quarter.

  2. Never again? Yeah right. Until humans cease to exist evil will continue to rise up from time to time the levels it is at today. It’s just simply human nature that demands the tree of liberty be fed the blood of patriots and tyrants.

  3. The doctor looks around and asks, “Dachau. Why does it still stand? Why do we keep it standing?”

    There is an answer to the doctor’s question.
    All the Dachaus must remain standing.
    The Dachaus, the Belsens, the Buchenwalds, the Auschwitzes – all of them. They must remain standing because they are a monument to a moment in time when some men decided to turn the Earth into a graveyard.
    Into it they shoveled all of their reason, their logic, their knowledge, but worst of all, their conscience.
    And the moment we forget this, the moment we cease to be haunted by its remembrance, then we become the gravediggers.
    Something to dwell on and to remember, not only in the Twilight Zone but wherever men walk God’s Earth.

  4. Someone on this site or another site wrote that this was a stupidity test and a bunch of people failed it. I’m beginning to agree with that statement.

  5. “Two years ago, how many people would have predicted that tennis’s number one ranked player would be banned from competing in Australia and France”

    I can’t control the faggots in foreign countries. Or other states or counties. I can tell you the China Flu has had zero impact on my life. And that’s probably the best revenge.

  6. ^^^^^^ Didn’t you run out and get the initial jab? That impact on your life might be yet to come.

  7. A concerned irony fact checker

    I did. If you want to consider that total of 15 minutes of my life an impact go ahead.

  8. My mechanic is in seriously fucked up shape as of yesterday from coof. He is a very tough SOB. One of those Angels that rides an “only Merican bikes allowed”. Figure it out.
    Coof Fucked him hard. He will be fine, but I can tell he’s been shaken up. 54yrs.
    I took 2 shots myself and had CooF last week. I was barely sick for about 6 hours. B A R E L Y !

    This Fuckin thing is MAN MADE!
    Unfortunately, for many people a Man made solution will help.

    If fuckin Brad took one shot then good, bad, indifferent for him. His choice.
    I made mine. I would easily take a 12 guage to the chest for my family so 2 fuckin needles of one Poison to help deal with another engineered Poison Will Not Scare me.

    I luv you fuckers but:

    When you get roofing tar on your hands you can wash with soap for hours and make little progress or you can get some WD-40 and wipe the shit off in seconds.

    Just remember, initially this was possibly a 2% disease especially with the slow moving medical systems (Not Doctors & Nurses) reacting Very Slowly.

    The current version circulating is MUCH WEAKER than flue, unless you have underlying issues.

    IT IS A, UNNATURAL BIOLOGICAL WEAPON that is weakening.

    If the Government would have admitted that initially, things would have been much better.

    Love & respect, make your own decision.

  9. Wild Bill,

    Re: Duck & Cover

    It still works for active shooter situations.

    So on some level…

    Cheers.

  10. PS.

    The Gov’t is exploiting Coof to attempt total control.

    But they do that with every opportunity.

    They always have a plan in their back pocket, they just wait for the excuse to implement it.

  11. This whole Covid event has really caused me to look at the whole medical community with an even greater level of skepticism. Independent thinking, and independent acting doctors are few and far between now.

    I got two. The Pfizer. I know a ton of people that have gotten the initial two. Not even a sore arm. However I’ve told my kids don’t get it. Do I think it’s safe? I think they have a big quality control problem and you roll the dice. But people here gotta realize the same reason they thought Q anons were nuts is taking place with them. LARPers are typing shit and they’re eating it up as facts. My favorite, your dick shrinks two inches if you get the jab. I’m sure some teenage girl in her moms basement is still laughing her ass off. Hell I gained two inches.
    Anyway, I got the JAB, so take your mask and shove it up your assnik.
    Everyone we know that got the third JAB got sick. I’m drawing the line at two.

  13. “This whole Covid event has really caused me to look at the whole medical community with an even greater level of skepticism. ”

    And you’re right to do so Joe6. Why don’t they consider pre existing conditions? Never heard of such a thing. Ultimately the decision should be made between you and your doctor.

  14. I gotta say I’m surprised you took it Brad. Twice too, I mean REALLY surprised.

    I’m curious as to your reasoning because for me, once there was to be no liability for the manufacturers, alarm bells were ringing in my ears. It went from I’ll take a more reasoned look to no fucking way in 3 seconds.

    That’s basically the way I’m looking at it.
    I wish I didn’t have to do it but: Canuckistan.
    I worry about the kids.

    Being in HVAC I change about 500 air filters a week and work outside all day. (12F today) I have probably had Coof 3 times by now.
    Think about it, almost 2 years and I don’t get it. Unlikely.

    Have a good night all.

  16. why have so few people with power stood up during these last two years to call out this COVID-1984 madness for what it is

    Well, duh.

    (Who do you think apotheosizes their fellow G-ds?)

  17. I had 3 relatives get very sick from the shots for 6 to 8 weeks +.

    Hubs was going to get the J&J for work but Biden’s dictate got blocked. He doesn’t want a shot but he retires in 5 yrs. Who’s going to hire him? So he was going to get it.

    As for “Never again”, we’ve heard that and similar before.
    Like the article say, power is hard to resist.

  18. Beachmom, if Beachdad ends up needing to get the shot do your research. But the Pfizer looked to be the most stable to us. There’s a web site that tracks the number of bad reactions by batch number. Every manufacturer has them. Pfizer seems to have a lot less. As I said above, this points to quality and process control issues. I also believe certain blood types are an issue. Good luck.
