ONCE BITTEN. TWICE SHY
“Life imitates art" - Oscar Wilde
Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the country. not a creature was stirring, except for a committee of megalomaniacs: truffling on a feast of hypocrisy, and corruption, and more hypocrisy, and inefficiency, and avarice and adultery, and a great piece of cold boiled propaganda, and mince-lies, and plenty of tasty beverages which emitted blended scents of bigotry and bullshit.
After their bellies were full, and their pockets lined, it was onto the festivities of the evening. On this particular occasion, there was no rendition of George Michael's yuletide classic, Last Christmas, but there was a rendition of George Orwell’s, Animal Farm: a rendition that looks set to return for an insidious encore.
"Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely" - Sir John Dalberg-Acton
Parliamentary corruption, moral decline and state inefficiency are at all-time-highs; the plate has never been so full, yet when the government say jump, the public say how high. Those in charge are using unscrupulous power to usher in a narrative of perpetual fear, propaganda and division by imploring to the kindness, morality, ethics, altruism, integrity, and good nature of society, in a last-ditch effort to cling onto the oligarchy and status quo. Human Rights are being dismantled. Liberty is being taken. Bodily autonomy is under threat. And the dark clouds of an Orwellian nightmare lie ubiquitous and pendulous on the horizon.
"There are incorrect papers under my name too" - Albert Einstein
If history has taught us anything, it’s that science shouldn’t be unequivocally trusted. Science needs to be questioned, to be analysed, to be researched, to be debated. But over recent years, scientists who’ve challenged the official narrative have been ignored, de-platformed, silenced and ridiculed. Early treatment and prophylactics have been censored. The discussion about exercise, nutrition and vitamin D3 have been non-existent. And natural immunity has been treated like fiction. With recent studies suggesting that obesity and D3 deficiency are two of the main drivers in COVID related deaths, surely this should be at the forefront of discussion?
Unfortunately, the discussion only centres around one product. A product created by a company hit with one of the largest criminal fines in human history; a company charged with bribery and falsifying data; a company who want to bury a vaccination study for 75 years; a company who want to unquestionably push their product on the young and healthy; a company whose product was issued under emergency use authorisation; a company immune to indemnity; a company which has experienced record-breaking profits; for a disease in which the average age of mortality is higher than the average life expectancy.
The noose of totalitarianism is tightening. Governments have trampled on our liberties and freedoms with barely any resistance. Individual rights will not be protected by politics or traditional activism. We must defend our rights with censorship-resistant open source tools and decentralisation.
"The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing" - Albert Einstein
