I'm glad for the growing swell of COVID!!! and VARIANT!!! and JUST GET VACCINATED!!! fatigue that's growing daily worldwide...all while the colony of Australia demonstrates that the problem was never about the descendants of convicts, but of prison officers. That's their particular problem, mate.
Every day I'm getting more and more from people I know; readers here, and anecdotes from their friends, family, and acquaintances saying, "I now understand this is not about health."
I told you so, about all of it, back on March 16, 2020, when little was still known specifically—yet I could so clearly see how idiots would idiot.
I’ve been in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand since right before public knowledge. At the time, it was just prior to Chinese New Year and there were tens of thousands of Chinese tourists here. Yet, I’ve never been concerned about it and to my mind, the only truly new strain of “virus” is a confluence of three general things:
1. A fully developed Internet and its chief manifestation, social media
2. The global, politicized leftist/socialist media
3. Trump Derangement Syndrome
The last big thing of this type was the 2009/10 swine flu, which infected an estimated 1 billion people globally and killed upwards of a half million. Of course, this new gig is infecting and killing people too, and it’s still early, relatively.
But in no way does it justify the literal absurd hysteria we’re seeing on a global scale, and I attribute this to items 1, 2, and 3, above. I’ve never seen anything like it. People young and old seemingly have no memories or learned experiences anymore, beyond their quotidian social “news” feeds. Each day is a new day of ridiculous information, and nothing else matters. There’s no past—that’s way down the feed—only what’s coming out now. Quick, update the feed.
I ought to have added to that: FUCKING PHONES.
Great tools they are, but toss every last one in the water and global, genuine quality of life improves instantly for all.
Is it too early to opine that Steve Jobs is turning in his grave?
I'm no Luddite by any means but, just as a hammer can be used to build a nice house, so too can it be used to bash in a skull.
“Delve into how it all began, beginning with Art De Vany in 2007, and continued through many iterations and self-experiments with workout styles (even working personally with Martin Berkhan — Leangains), diet hacks, and all forms of fasting known to mankind…right up to how I eventually became a “gym junkie” at the ripe age of 62 as an American Expat in Pattaya, Thailand…achieving the best gains and fat blasting of my life.”More...
