The wokes, the maskists, the mentally ill — what do we make of those who miss forced anti-social behaviour?
Oh, gurl, may I have your autograph, please? I'm a truck driver and went belligerently maskless through this whole clusterf#@k, unvaccinated. Never got sick until I allowed myself to be vaccinated with Pfizer like my military son had to take, so I could share his fate. ( The 2nd shot triggered a nasty reaction, worse than any I've ever experienced, even with my barrage of shots in Army basic decades ago. )
Anyway, you are completely on target and, incidentally, write screamingly well! Your prose has the perfect balance of fact, counter-point, and snark. Quite impeccable, really! Brava`!
Yeah, I've lost so many friends over pointing out some of the same things you've put forward in this. I pointed out that the lifting of a mask mandate doesn't require you to take your mask off. It just means that you can if you choose to. Yet for the past two years pointing that out was heresy which supposedly would get people killed. I also pointed out that the negative economic effects would destroy people's lives and get people killed. Even when I pointed out that the United Nations, which runs the World Health Organization, suggested that millions would die as a result of the starvation lockdowns would cause, they suggested it was better than dying from CoVid. It's fascinating to see so many people who were so in favour of such things try to come to terms with the fact that they were wrong.
Daaamn girl you really knocked it out of the park there on multiple levels. Applause!
Great to see you push back on this kind of mental illness culture, where illness is glorified and everyone is over medicated. I’m really critical of medication for depression and anxiety, based on both personal experience and research I’ve done. But when I bring this up, my lefty friends give me that look like I just said women don’t have dicks.
funny and accurate, yes, i call them the cloistered class! <3
My first thought when they closed the gyms: that's it, the fats won.
The mental health pandemic reached its fullest and most terrifying expression during COVID, as you describe so scathingly. It's been gathering for a long time, though. The Left isn't a political movement, it isn't an ideology, it's just a mental illness feedback loop: manufacturing psychosis even as it feeds off of it.
Amazingly, EM Forster described this tech-ish isolation in a story a century ago:
“Beware of first-hand ideas!” was a mantram in that society.
I agree with you about 99% of things as a rule Meghan; I've been a fan for many years. I feel compelled to point out that there are some people who need to be on antidepressants, and who have chosen to be on them not out of simple laziness or cowardice. Unfortunately many people do feel a great deal of shame about taking them, and that's how people like David Foster Wallace end up killing themselves.
Also Trump belongs on your list of mentally ill people. I'm not saying that due to any particular political affiliation. I know NPD when I see it, unfortunately.
