Left, Right, Sheep, and Seals Hoist With Their Own Petard: Covid Compliance

The actual phrase is hoist with his own petard and and emanates from Shakespeare's play, Hamlet. It's basically the drama wherein, a bomb-maker blows himself up.

It's poetic; and, it's justice.

Let it work,
For ’tis the sport to have the enginer
Hoist with his own petard; and ’t shall go hard
But I will delve one yard below their mines
And blow them at the moon. O, ’tis most sweet
When in one line two crafts directly meet.

—  Prince Hamlet, in Hamlet, Act 3, Scene 4

If you've ever laughed your ass off watching videos from that world of 6th-Century, Dirt-Scratching Savages blowing themselves up whilst giving instruction on suicide-bomb operation, you know exactly what Shakespeare means. I can't imagine a scene more cathartic. It's even more cathartic when women and children are included amongst the resultant hamburger...

"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root." — Henry David Thoreau

I never mince words.

The search function here at FTA indicates I've used this specific 'petard' reference 12 times going back to 2006. It used to be a favorite of AnCaps.

I started writing Free The Animal in late 2003 as just a little thing to try. 20 years later, turns out I've written over 5,000 posts. I blog what I wish...from diet, health, lifestyle...to philosophy, politics, social antagonism, adventure travel, expat living, location and time independent—while you sleep— income by geoarbitrage, and food pics. I intended to travel the world "homeless," but the Covidiocy Panicdemic squashed that. I became an American expat living in Thailand. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. ... I leave the toilet seat up. Read More
