Ruler Delusion Psychosis
I guess they can't help themselves...
Back in the middle of the COVID psychosis the usual suspects jumped all over Dr. Robert Malone for accusing the rulers of creating a “mass formation psychosis” to push the COVID masking / lockdown / vax panic. Said Malone on the Joe Rogan show:
“When you have a society that has become decoupled from each other and has free-floating anxiety in a sense that things don’t make sense, we can’t understand it, and then their attention gets focused by a leader or series of events on one small point just like hypnosis, they literally become hypnotized and can be led anywhere.”
And, Forbes declared, that is absolutely not what happened over COVID.
Agreed. The delusion problem is not with The People. Although it is my belief that women are particularly susceptible to going along with the Narrative, psychotically or not.
No. The problem is leaders of all kinds who are just waiting for a chance to declare a crisis that requires everyone to get in line, click their heels, and follow orders from on high. Why? Because that is what leaders do. And, as Malone declares, the people tend to go along.
Example: Chinese President Xi Jinping, who seems to have wrecked the Chinese economy by thinking and acting on the idea that the economy needs direction from the top. No! The human economy doesn’t work that way.
Example: The climatistas, led by WEF honcho Klaus Schwab, who demand that we transform the global economy to save the world from global warming. No! Humans and animals survive and thrive not by anticipating changes but by adapting to changes.
Example: Vanguard, State Street and BlackRock, financial behemoths that are pushing ESG and DEI on corporations. No! Stay in your lane, financial twerps, and stay out of politics. You have no idea what you are doing.
Example: Moves in the administrative state to revive masking and vaccination in response to new COVID variants. No! It’s clear that the original lockdown, masking, vaccination one-size-fits-all was a gross overreaction, but clearly the kind of protocol that comes naturally to administrative experts and their political leader bosses in the government.
I could go on.
OK. So when the Martians have landed, we all mobilize to fight them no matter what the odds. But then there are all the gussied up emergencies, of which it is probably best to admit that: “stuff happens.”
