In the 60s our schools were teaching the horrors of communism. Having been in grade school at the time I can testify that we were horrified by the possibility of nuclear war. They showed us films about the horrors we were facing. We did exercises such as hiding under our desks, going to the basement of the school. We were told what to do if the bombs start falling. Jump in a ditch, get indoors, get to a “bomb shelter” (of which there were none in my neighborhood). We were horrified. We all had nightmares about the upcoming end of the world. None of the exercises nor any of the advice would have made the slightest difference had atomic bombs begun to fall. But you can betcher tonsils, we were scared to death!
“Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.” Originally found in the epigram of in the January 1849 issue of Les Guêpes (“The Wasps”). And indeed it seems true, “The more it changes, the more it’s the same thing.”
We now have new, horrendous threat. A coronavirus infection that will probably kill you! (Ignore those statistics). Looking at the fatalities in various countries, we see the ones that employed ivermectin and/or hydroxychloroquine (treatments that we Americans are not allowed to talk about on Facistbook, Twatter, or YouBoob), had much lower fatality rates than those, such as the US, who didn’t employ those horrendous treatments.
Yes, it appears you’ve only got a 99% chance of survival if you catch the dreaded COVID-19! Our schools were closed down despite the fact that children face far less risk from C19 than they do from the typical seasonal flu. We were given a series of completely ineffective “protections,” including masks and social distancing, which are actually harmful for children. The fatalities caused by peripheral damage from the C19 scamdemic, such as suicides and drug/alcohol deaths, are far greater than the actual fatality rate from C19 (a number that is practically impossible to find).
And now we’re learning the truth, which those of any intelligence knew all along, COVID-19 was bioengineered in China… Yes, yes, yes, I know the propagandia is still denying this, but the evidence, which makes absolutely no difference to them at all, is that it was indeed bioengineered in the Wuhan lab financed by America (The oBama). Trump cut that funding, but, of course, that money flow is being returned. A virus that only affects the aged, sick, and weak while not attacking the youth is rather quite an accomplishment! Who knows what wonders they’ll come up with next? But I’m getting completely off track.
As the fear of nuclear war subsided, the world has become safer, easier, and healthier than ever before. Yet, behind the scenes, governmental terrorists such as Al Gore (who ironically enough, wrote, “The Politics of Fear,” in a short article in “Social Research,” Vol. 71, No. 4, FEAR: ITS POLITICAL USES & ABUSES (Winter 2004)) telling us, “Terrorism is the ultimate misuse of fear for political ends. Indeed its specific goal is to distort the political reality of a nation by creating fear in the general population.” Yes, from one of the fathers of the global warming scam.
Psychologists have noted an increasing number of children who are being treated for “eco-anxiety.” Of course, they continue to point out that this is a “rational fear,” in spite of mounds of evidence that it isn’t, and may in fact, if it actually exists at all, be good for much of the planet.
Carbon dioxide is one of the keys to life. Atmospheric CO2 concentrations, where they are now at 400 PPM are dangerously low for life on Earth. Yet we’re teaching our children that an increase will kill us all! And, we’re not just scaring the children. As this headline from “Buzzfeed” demonstrates, “I Chose Not To Have Kids Because I’m Afraid For The Planet.” In an article that even brings God into the argument, the writer tells of being a Mormon who learned about the horrors of global warming at Brigham Young University. She does eventually announce that’s she’s lost her “faith.” The first to go when authoritarians take over is God, and no, I don’t recommend the article, unless you enjoy fantasies about destruction because that’s what the article is, a fantasy of fear.
Al Gore, a wacko who is rarely right about anything, was right about the politics of fear, which he, the left, and the propagandia employ quite effectively.
In 2021 our schools and media are still scaring the pants off our children, but now the heroes have become the very thing we in the 60s feared, communists. They refer to themselves as democratic socialists, which is nonsense. Say what you want about Karl Marx, he was evil, but he was a genius who pointed out the truth that “socialism” is the porch mat for communism. Our children are trembling and we’re teaching them that government is the cure. Now THAT’s what scares me!
