We are being told to flatten the curve by practicing social distancing. We are being told to quarantine shame those who break the new societal taboos. So how exactly do you introduce entirely new cultural norms across much of the world in the space of just a few weeks? Watch and learn.

    From the netherlands:
    A friend of mine had his birthday last saturday. On sunday evening (when my GF had her birthday, and her parents came over) when I texted him to ask what he did on his birthday, I got a message back: I spend the day at home with the kids, JUST LIKE WE ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO DO.
    He ofcourse had heard how we had ‘celebrated’ the birthday of my gf.
    This is for me at least as creepy as what governments are rolling out.. how it is working in social connections. In my family I sense a huge misunderstanding of each other, irritation, not wanting to listen to each other.

    Hi James (and others).
    I’m writing form Italy, since you asked for feedback from non-English speaking countries.
    Long story short, you’re spot on.

    Before coming to the point a short premise; I run a blog (mainly in Italian but occasionally I write articles in my personal interpretation of the English language), and I did my part in promoting the “social distancing” (by mean of lockdown and social behaviours policies) for reasons that are grounded in science (given my academic background). At that time I felt that was needed since there was still a bit of denial in understanding that social policies are the only mean to bring down the outbreak; they can reduce the death toll by a factor of 1000 while the health system can only affect it by a factor of 1/1000 (at least with this virus in the Italian demographic).

    That being said, gradually, I’ve noticed some worrying events.
    Measures become ever more stringent beyond what both common sense and science dictate. The lockdown has become more stringent exactly when the previous measures have proven to be effective (weekly increase rate of COVID19 went down from 267% to 120% in 2 weeks), and behaviours like having a walk or a ride on the bicycle while alone being criminalized. This while some politicians (majors of cities and regions) were explicitly asking for militarization of the country; not for providing emergency assistance, no; for controlling the people. I’m not kidding you.

    And a lot of people cheering for this.

    Some stereotypes about Italians are true; we are very, very social animals, we distrust the politics and we are reluctant to obey rules not grounded in common sense Nonetheless, many have become fanatics of restrictions. From the denial of the virus threat to the denial of the imprisonment status. Let’s be clear; there is still people who keep a more sceptic attitude, but there are people who would not hesitate a second to call the police if they spot someone violating the “new rules”.

    If this can happen in Italy it will surely happen elsewhere.

      My neighbor, from balcony to friendly balcony, interrogated me yesterday, much to my surprise, about Why on Earth I went all the way to Valmy to do my shopping when Champvert was SO MUCH CLOSER! (It was her husband who had solemnly reminded me not to forget my authorization certificate a couple days ago) “Check the distances on Google Maps!” she urges me, which might seem like just a neighborly tip to minimize my shopping trouble until she comes out with: “By going further away you multiply the number of encounters you might have with other people! And did you say you WALKED all the way to Valmy?? Why did you do that?!”

      When conversation lagged she informed me she was going to walk around the residence to stretch her legs.

      “I’ll be back in time for the evening applause!” she assured me with mirthful anticipation.”

      Honestly, that’s what she said.

      “The lockdown has become more stringent exactly when the previous measures have proven to be effective (weekly increase rate of COVID19 went down from 267% to 120% in 2 weeks)…”

      This is so interesting. Why are people not questioning it? (apart from yourself). I think in the UK people will start to get bolshy if the isolation goes on for too long, even after the number of cases have fallen. I really hope so anyway!

      • fabrizio says:

        Exaclty, why are not questioning?
        Two days after the new “enhanced” rules were made operational, some media were forced to point out that there was a positive trend (that was already very clear before the new “edict”).
        I think the answer is in the a toxic blend of factors:
        – many people seem caught in a Stockholm syndrom; in the cage they feel safe, and outside there is uncertaincy;
        – the media outlets sell fear;
        – incompetence of lower level leaders (at regional and at city level) who do not know anything about statistics and epidemeology combined with higher level leaders who might think that providing “conforting” news could lead to the loosening of the strict discipline
        – also, it seems that restrictions have become a political game, where every level of government compete with the others in imposing restrictive measures in order to appear more “caring of public health”

        There may be something more obscure, but the factors above are all in place in Italy.

        @ minnie “I think in the UK people will start to get bolshy if the isolation goes on for too long, even after the number of cases have fallen. I really hope so anyway!”

        I’m all in favor of conscious resistance to any over-reach of the state, but that’s not what I’m experiencing in the UK right now: the majority seem to be carrying on as normal not to exert their hard-won rights, but because we’ve become so self-absorbed and entitled, that the rules only apply to other people now. It’s as if the section of the population that ordinarily believes everything they’re told have suddenly decided not to because it’s an inconvenience! I honestly believe that were people being advised to stay inside due to high levels of radiation, they’d still be going about their business as usual…

      • Fiona says:

        I’m in Scotland and have just moved out of a village into a city. Recently police were taking photographs of car licence plates at a local forest/beauty spot where people were walking their dogs in an open countryside. One neighbour posted on FB that this was happening and the response in favour was overwhelming. I commented that this was about social control and had nothing to do with protecting people from a ‘flu bug’ and was shot down by 20+ people. Also, I was moving house at the same time and strongly suspect that one of my neighbours was filming me carrying boxes to my car. Unbelievable. I tried posting a couple of credible videos on Coronavirus and my post was removed from the village FB page. There is 1000 people in the village and I would struggle to find more than a couple who are aware of what’s going on. Awful.

      Thank you for your input. I am based in Nottingham, UK, but also obserev evenets in Poland.

      1. What are you describing is already in the post for United Kingdom. As from yesterday, we are in the lockdown, but press already pushing propaganda for military involvement. The new Coronavirus Bill 2020 which is already criticized by civil rights lawyers as ‘assault’ on civil liberties would be pass very soon. Sadly, we have no opposition in the Parliament. Nottingham is extremely quiet, yet for people this is still not enough. Just like you are describing in your post – they are cheering and want more restrictions.

      Coronavirus latest news: Lockdown confusion and chaos – but there are warnings it could yet get tighter

      2. James was absolutely right in this video stating that people will put pressures on others and shame them for not be obedient to the State. It is happening already !

      3. Poland went into full blown paranoid with headlines like ‘If you leave home you will die’, ‘Lockdown is only matter of time’, ‘Police would be dictating what you can do or cannot do’

      If you look on one of the main web Polish portals you do not have to speak Polish to see propaganda in full blow crazy mode, and ‘only’ 9 people died so far.

      4. One of the most interesting phenomena I have noticed on social media is people inability to connect lockdowns with economic depression.

      This is fascinating to watch and I am very grateful for this community and James input. Both keep me sane.

      And being from Italy, what do you think about the predominance of radiation from 5G that could easily also be affecting the health of the population?

  3. Strandy says:

    It’s even worse then what James are describing!!!! As a former therapist for the mind, now therapist for the body I can safely say that this is an attack on our ability to communicate.
    We humans can NOT survive in any shape or form without TOUCH and greeting other humans with open arms!!! Without it our ability to communicate is severely disabled….. Touch and listening creates the most powerful aspect for our being’s which is the ability to see one another!!!! The most needed aspect for any human being.
    I see these persuasive attacks from within (Luciferian, satanic, archonic) The master of deception/perception as the world war III that we are seeing unfold right now!!!

    Of course this is newspeak. It should be called Antisocial Distancing.

    • manbearpig says:

      Oh that’s a good one!

      I’m going to add that to my list I’d started this morning on the current evolution of words and their meanings!

      now where the heck did I leave that list…?

      • Camille says:

        My friend, you may already have them on your list of words, but I mentioned some that should be on there in my new video.

        The End Of The World As We Know It

        Antisocial distancing… I’ll be using that while I’m out and about talking to strangers!

        • mkey says:

          Excellent video yet again, Camille. I especially like the point about pandemic. In many ways it is like yelling “fire” in a theater, even if I don’t know of any theater that can fit billions of people.

          • Camille says:

            Thanks, mkey! I kind of swiped that from Michael Crichton’s State of Fear… He was talking about cancer.

            And just before that part, the book says:
            “I’m telling you, this is the way modern society works – by the constant creation of fear. And there is no countervailing force. There is no system of checks and balances, no restraint on the perpetual promotion of fear after fear after fear….”

            It’s a good read.

        • manbearpig says:

          Amazing as usual Camille. Wanted to watch again before commenting to give specific remarks but got sidetracked… tomorrow’s another day.

          the UBI I’ve seen it hurtling towards us like a mack truck since the beginning… since muriel pénicaud’s “unlimited budget” and smug smile…and then government after government’s similar remarks: “anything to protect jobs, anything it takes to get the people through this ordeal”

          but I can’t just drop the internet, that’s where I find sanity, am really tired of disagreeing with folks IRL…

          thanks again, great sleuthing and good night for…tonight…

          • Camille says:

            Thank you, manbearpig!

            Isn’t it just great how they have all of these plans, like the UBI, there to “save” us? What would we do without them?!?
            I could think of some things…

            I must go to bed. I hope you have a wonderful day!

    • Joxx r us says:

      Or..perhaps “fuck off you toxic bastard!” distancing?

  5. Qno says:

    Just a couple of observations:

    1) if the BBC graphs are to be believed, this crisis is very much a first world problem. Also born out by what our contacts around the world are telling us. I’d also suggest among the correlates for that are forthright governments, intense microwave communications, and access to medical care. Yes, one big fat elephant that’s been in the room since Spanish Flu is that access to advanced medical care does not necessarily equal better health outcomes. Many of the 1918 deaths were iatrogenic.

    2) one high risk group appears to be the rich, famous and powerful. To interpret that best ask a Q-tard.

    • mkey says:


      adjective: iatrogenic

      relating to illness caused by medical examination or treatment.
      “drugs may cause side effects which can lead to iatrogenic disease”

      I’m less than surprised that I have never heard of this word before.

      • brian.s says:

        It is (at least) the third leading cause of death in US and UK.
        I say at least because for example how many deaths from chemotherapy are attributed to the cancer?

        Lockdown on Pharma?
        Isolate Pharma from the regulatory system?

        If Pharma et al didn’t reset the global system, the undoing of the narrative would pull the rug and take the lid off of a racket that goes much deeper than a bot of profiteering.

  6. Nusuth says:

    Went for a short back packing trip at a state park this weekend. Signs everywhere saying no camping because of “emergency”. All the digital road signs say “save lives now stay home”. I saw two unmarked cop cars on the beltway just slowing down traffic. Just driving 15 with their lights on, I couldn’t figure out a reason why. The SRM traffic in the sky over my area has been quite heavy, in the few hours a day you can see the sky.. It’s strange out there folks.

    • manbearpig says:

      Yes! Didn’t you know? Now, staying at home, clapping, yelling from your window and lighting candles even if your window can’t be seen contributes to society!

      Here in Lyon the skies have never been so blue, clear, helicopter and chemtrail-free!

      Wait! A helicopter DID just fly over!

      It’s unnervingly suspicious…

      • Sebastian De Clarke says:

        James was mentioning in one of his podcast that it is only matter of time that Covid 19 would be mentioned in climate change conversation. Interesting isnt?

      • Sebastian De Clarke says:

        Also in UK people ask children to drew pictures thanking National Health Service or asking people to Stay Home, and place them on the window so everyone can see it. Of course, media love it!

          “Coronavirus Holds Key Lessons on How to Fight Climate Change

          When the COVID-19 pandemic is past, societies may adopt some important measures that would lower emissions, from more teleconferencing to shortening global supply chains. But the most lasting lesson may be what the coronavirus teaches us about the urgency of taking swift action.

          By Beth Gardiner • March 23, 2020

          “…And as with the coronavirus, said Wagner, climate policies must push everyone to take heed of the costs their actions — whether disease exposure or carbon emissions — impose on others. “It’s all about somebody else stepping in and forcing us to internalize the externality, which means

          don’t rely on parents to take their kids out of school, close the school,” he said. “Don’t rely on companies or workers to stay home or tell their people to stay home, force them to do so or pay them to do so, but make sure it happens. And of course that’s the role of government.”…

          …Stimulus measures aimed at easing COVID-19’s economic shock could aim to drive emissions reductions too,

          by funding low-carbon infrastructure or offering online training for green-economy jobs to newly unemployed workers stuck at home, Sawin said…”

          reply to Mr de Clarke contd below:

          • manbearpig says:

            reply to Mr De Clarke contd from above:

            “…In Sawin’s view, the pandemic’s multi-layered impact supports an argument U.S. Green New Deal backers have been making:

            Tackling our biggest problems in tandem may be more effective than taking them on one at a time.

            Just as those without sick leave may spread the virus because they must work while infected, unaffordable child care and an employer-based health insurance system can rob people of the flexibility to relocate for jobs in growing industries like clean power, she said.

            “People are starting to understand that to have a whole society shift behavior really quickly, you need to support everyone,” Sawin said. “A social safety net reduces the friction of change.”…

            [Hello UBI!]

            …Similarly, she said, the pandemic may hasten a flattening, or even reversal, in the growth of international trade, which began to slow in 2019 because of tensions over tariffs. “Now, of course, it’s really crashing,” Jaffe said.

            If virus-induced shutdowns or border closings create shortages of drugs, medical equipment, or other essential items, many nations and companies may be anxious to reduce their vulnerability to highly globalized supply networks.

            “If we shrink supply chains, if countries are going to produce more of their own goods, I think that is structurally going to reduce oil demand” and shrink shipping’s carbon footprint, she said….”


            ps: another word evolution for my list: “unity” means “hive mind”…

        • mkey says:

          Seeing these posters remind me of the psyop post 9/11 where thousands of posters were plastered all over NY, whereby thousands of people supposedly looked for even more thousands of missing people.

          And it was always interesting how many stories involved people who were there at the time or people who knew people who blah blah. I guess this is how they force people to become involved, full spectrum dominance. Kind of reminds me of in vitro fertilization. Just go overboard and hope something will stick.

          • Sebastian De Clarke says:

            Hmm, I have to admit this is very interesting comparison. In my view,’Operation Covid – 19′ has loads of similarities with 9/11. However, as James already pointed out the silent enemy is not the virus but the citizens. Ironically, they have no idea about this. After last comments circulating around subjects of ‘introducing full blown lock down with increase police and military powers (both on the way with new Coronavirus Act 2020) which we know it would happen anyway I have gave up on the general public. Let them do whatever they want to do. As usual they will wake up more enslaved and controlled.

            It is hard not to take advice from George Carlin and ‘not to give a shit’ (at least about random Joe). I have yet struggle to find one person who would listen alternative views. Saying that, it is only a matter of short time when ‘the average Joe’ will realise that his caring and beloved government plans to put the one more chain on his neck.

  7. mcinnola says:

    I am in Malaga, Spain. I am dual national, US/EU. I have been in Spain since Christmas, and just rented an apt. until May.

    The shutdown here was swift and harsh. We cannot not be outside at all, under threat of arrest and fines. I have been to the market three times in ten days. There are reports of people being stopped and harassed by the police especially non nationals/non Spanish speakers, of which I am one.

    They recently extended the lockdown until April 12th, and there are rumours now that they will increase the limitations to a complete lockdown.

    The Spanish seem to be very docile and well behaved. Nobody is questioning the narrative and they all are suitably afraid of the virus.

    It’s all ratcheted up so quickly, and I seem to have missed my opportunity to leave for the US or for Ireland. I am more concerned about being caught en route and staying put seems safer.

    I find it interesting that all of the countries are telling their citizens to come home and non-nationals to go home. Despite the alleged threat of contagion.

    The State Dept tells me to come home, but not to rely on them for help. The UK just this morning, reissued a request for everybody to come home (from Spain which is supposed to be highly infectious!).

    I’m holding tight for now. All input gratefully appreciated,



    • Qno says:

      Yes, imagine what happens if somebody up in first class just happens to be sweating a bit too much on the flight. Scenario scenario. I want to go home, but I don’t want to risk the trip. Meanwhile, I have noticed everybody seems to have a strong feeling of wanting to be anywhere but where they are. That’s panic in a nutshell. I have it too, and yet where I am is probably the best place to be.

      Best analog for this new illness is influenza. Mathematicians Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wikramasinghe studied flu transmission and found that it makes no difference whether you live in a house with ten people in a city centre, or live in a lighthouse and don’t see anyone for weeks on end: your chances of getting the flu in an outbreak are exactly the same. Inference: person to person transmission is NOT the mechanism for flu.

      The big correlates for influenza are location and meteorology – where you are and what the weather is doing. Illness comes in clusters because people are in the same locale (the reason is not understood), and not because they pass it to one another.

      Hoyle’s conclusion is that to survive an outbreak, if you haven’t already got sick, stay right where you are, because that is not a geographical hot spot.

      • mary.c says:

        I am not AT ALL concerned about the virus.

        I am afraid of the government and the police and the military.

        and of my neighbors ratting me out.

      • haros says:

        I think exactly like mary.c. The point of leaving the place where you are is not to escape from the virus, but from the Government, their measures/laws, their dogs and people.

        Just seeing the events, many people are considering to change their lives, locations and so on, because the future measures seem to direct to a worse dystopia than anything written before. Maybe not this year or the next one, but it will come… It is just an opinion and I HOPE with all my heart to be wrong.

      • brian.s says:

        Hoyle was also Astronomer Royal (UK) and believed interplanetray or comet dust played a role. He presumed virus from Space, but if the virus is the cells collective adaptation of abilty to clear toxins – then consider toxic air – such as Northern Italy, Wuhan and the locale for the Spanish outbreak.

        You may also consider chemtrailing particulates as a means to add to the cocktail – and mass vaccinations as the means to induce another wave of the ‘disease’.

        Toxicology can be many causes – including compromised immune function to successfully clear it – or suppressed and blocked immune function as a result of ‘War on Symptoms’ – excepting this ‘disease’ is regardless of any symptoms, and established by an unreliable test that still wouldn’t establish the trace RNS molecules as CAUSE. But often NO TEST or symptoms other than being associated as having been in the vicinity of someone who is diagnosed ‘positive’.

        Toxicity can be found hiding behind germ theory.
        But to look there is to lose the illusion of security under those who are complicit in deceit by which to maintain possession and control by means of induced scarcity, threats and protections.
        This is a very disturbing popping of a bubble of self-isolation aligned in herd reinforcement.
        You cannot talk to another of this who isnt already willing to hear it.

        And so you can only talk within the frame of their currently invested beliefs.
        This is a very different call to ‘waking up the sheeple!’
        It depends on compassionate discernment in place of judgmental ‘help’
        And it is willingness to live this that actually wakes from the dream – that became an inescapable nightmare.

    • minnie says:

      That is really interesting mcinnola. I had no idea that the UK government were asking UK nationals abroad to “come home”. Last night a relative who is a doctor was explaining why social distancing is necessary for a short period, and it made some sense (as long as it’s just for a short period).

      But asking people to return from a country where the infection is running rampant knocks that explanation right on its head!

      Less than 2 weeks ago I was at my local climbing centre, chatting to a couple of Spanish guys, and we were jokingly saying that if we were told to isolate, we’d like to do it on a Spanish beach. That was on March 13th. No joking now – the reality sounds horrendous.

    • haros says:

      Hello MC,

      I am Spanish so I know what you are talking about. You write about how quickly it was carried out, so I am going to explain it a little bit more for others to understand how it was done.

      A document was filtered on March 14th (Saturday) to a Spanish radio stating that the President Pedro Sánchez was going to announce the lockdown of the country the same day, and that the measures would start on Monday at 8:00 am. In the afternoon, while the President was speaking, I started to prepare my stuff to go to a house that my family owns in a very little village in the south of Spain, which is surrounded by nature and I could walk without many problems.

      The thing is that he locked down the country just after his speech, the same Saturday! I had to stayed home because there are hundreds of km between this village and my house. This is how fast it was.

      The funny thing is that I could have invented an excuse if the police stopped me while I was driving by saying that now I lived in the south although I hadn’t changed my ID card yet (in the case that the looked at my address). Do you know why I decided to stay home? Social pressure. Can you image what would have happened if I appear in this town (where EVERYBODY I know is happy with the lockdown) and people start getting sick? I am absolutely, 100% sure, that I would be blamed.

      You say that Spanish seem to be very docile and this is something that has surprised me a lot. People in Spain laugh at the policemen faces (at least in big citties). They just don’t care about them and if police come, young people just keep doing what they want after they leave.

      Now I am seeing exactly the opposite. As you have said, almost anybody is saying nothing about this situation, they follow all the orders, and they are pointing with their fingers those who don’t follow the rules.

      Just one last thing that I saw this morning through my window: two people were about to cross each other, but with a separation of 2 meters between them, and without even look at each other, they separated even more. The worst part is that it seemed to me that it was all unconscious.

      That’s all I wanted to say for now. I hope that you see that not all Spanish are happy with the situation 🙂

        I’m glad of your update.. I thought I might have missed something but I guess I didn’t.

        Someone from Ireland texted me Saturday night at 9 saying they were shutting everything down at midnight and I had no idea what he was talking about.

        I have roommates and they think I am mad when I tell them I don’t believe in viruses, and don’t trust the state. It was really peer pressure at first that kept me inside, now it is fear. Anybody paying attention knows that world governments are all in cahoots. Isn’t that what the EU is, one government over all of Europe? Not to mention things like Bilderberg.

        I fluctuate from quite angry to quite sad. I wish people would see what is going on, and I wonder when I will be able to go home. My lease here is up at the end of next month and I am supposed to return to work.

        I am 500ft from. beach to and can’t go to it.

        When I wake up in the morning it takes a minute to remember that I am under house arrest,

        I still can’t believe this is happening.


        • HopefulOne says:

          I’m with you, MC- lots of disbelief that things are playing out in this way. Sadness that what could be a decent, peaceful way of life is being taken away completely.

          Your description of being so near the beach, yet unable to even put your foot there, caused me to realize that we have all been arrested and jailed without a need for any more prisons.

          I wonder if the realization that these statistics do not warrant the dismantling of freedoms worldwide, will dawn on the populace soon?

          What facts could be disseminated that might raise questions in their minds?

        • minnie says:

          “Under house arrest” – that’s a very good way to put it.

          Actually although we are all officially under house arrest now in the UK, I had to drive about 20 miles today (a 40-mile round trip).

          I was in the process of moving house when this happened, living temporarily at my mum’s house, and most of my possessions are in storage. I had to drive 20 miles to my flat to get the mail.

          I was really worried about it, for the same reasons that Haros mentioned. However I needn’t have worried, as there were lots of people about and quite a lot of cars on the road (though not quite as many as usual). The only thing I didn’t see was police.

          So I have a small amount of hope for the UK, even though a few people I know are going absolutely bonkers with panic.

          • Sebastian De Clarke says:

            I don’t know man.

            With this kind of message realised 20 minutes ago:

            “Aerial images from London also showed people failing to comply with social distancing rules, prompting government minister Michael Gove to warn: “Unless you stay at home then the people you love most may die.”

            and people begging for police and army to enter it is only a matter of time when we will encounter inevitable.

            You can see massive propaganda in this article with obvious pictures that will ‘trigger’ madness in the masses

            The UK has begun a three-week lockdown in a bid to prevent the spread of coronavirus.


            and this constant obsession with Saving NHS by Government that had underfunded Public Health for 10 years.

            I think, we can safely say, that a large part of the population lost in their ‘Darwinian development’ critical thinking skill.

        • haros says:

          I know this feeling. Just a few weeks ago, if you had told me that you don’t believe about viruses, I wouldn’t have believed a single word (unless you had showed me evidence) for the simple reason that I myself have worked with them in the laboratory. But then, reading Jon Rapopport I saw a comment recommending a book which I am reading at this moment (Fear of the invisible) and now red flags are warning me at least to take a much closer look at the topic.

          Anyway, even if viruses exist, people should read this book if they have time because it is very well researched and shows how amazingly corrupt is the medical field (nothing new).

          I also understand how you feel. I think that many of us who are commenting have these changes in mood. But it must be really hard for you to be in another country facing all this. I truly wish you the best and I hope you can come back home soon. The sentence about the beach is heartbreaking.

          I feel exactly in the same way every morning when I get up. I find this moment extremely interesting: it is like the moment when you get access to your “persona”. The moment when the memories come back to tell you who you are and what happens in the outside world.

          • brian.s says:

            I am also reading ‘Fear of the Invisible by Janine Roberts – but was already released from viral mind programming from a wealth of other sources – however, Janine writes very humanly and readably such as to follow a human process of concern and alarm using investigative skills.

            Exosomes are another name for extracellular exchange and communication. That such energetic exchange is recorded and given a postulate that fits is not to steal the truth to make the model real – but if the model serves life and the living – then use it for what it brings us.
            But when the Man and the Life is coerced and made to fit a model that is out of accord withLife and actively undermining the living, we have to release the ‘world’ the model gave us in faith of a more truly aligned discernment and recognition of an order within Life rather than imposed or impostured.

            In some ways there are layers to fear such that the cover story of ‘virus fear’ (in this example) protects the mind from deeper deceits by flagging the cause OUTSIDE and invoking surrogate Parents for protection. Opening the lid to find cover stories used to hide toxic debts that are thus not only dumped on the people but serve as a basis for new ways to redistribute wealth and power built on toxic foundations – is opening to to the horror of humanly intended degradations and denial even to genocidal and biocidal outcomes. This can induce powerlessness, rage and heartbreak and despair – such as to stop short o recognising and releasing the core patterning within our own split mind that unconsciously or not feeds into a self-isolating mind of judgement – set over life – and yet largely operating as an invisible structure that automatically seeks and finds social reinforcement of shifting alliances and mutual identity in targeted hates or exclusions – by which to maintain our own ‘survival’ – at other’s expense while masking in moral self superiority or justification.

            That many of us cannot open perspective on our own persona – but automatically and habitually identify in its framing, is being ‘re-enacted’ to the digital network of a virtual representation.
            Consciousness is being given up to the choice for fear.

            Here’s a Single Quiet Thought that I just read in my toilet:

            Listening to the Heart is letting go of stories.
            Letting go of stories is letting go of judgment and fear.
            This is what it means to be still.
            This is what it means to be quiet.
            This is what it means to be at peace.

            One cannot be still while judging.
            One cannot be quiet while listening to the noise of stories.
            One cannot be at peace when the mind is absorbed with fear.
            One must choose between one and the other.
            One must look and see what each option offers,
            and then one must make a choice.

        Thanks for sharing, haros. I’m sick you weren’t able to get to your family home. It would’ve been such a peaceful, safe place.

        “Now I am seeing exactly the opposite. As you have said, almost anybody is saying nothing about this situation, they follow all the orders, and they are pointing with their fingers those who don’t follow the rules.”

        See? Invasion of the Body Snatchers:

        My heart goes out to you, Mary. As Alexandre said on another thread, we’re “alone in this together”. Hang in there.

        • haros says:

          You are welcome, Peal, and thank you very much for your nice words. Actually it is a vacation house for the family, so nobody lives in there (I haven’t expressed myself right, sorry). I just wanted to spend this time in a quiet place, reading, surrounded by nature and disconnected of all this hysteria.

          I haven’t watched this movie but I have to tell you that I didn’t expect this scream and I have startled because I had the volume hight! Now this thought have come to my mind… If I would have had a heart attack watching your video and Spanish doctors had identified coronavirus in me, would have they reported me as a new case of death by coronavirus…? Something to think about.

          By the way, the sentence by Alexandre is simply wonderful. I love it.

          • pearl says:

            “I haven’t watched this movie but I have to tell you that I didn’t expect this scream and I have startled because I had the volume high!”

            Oh wow! I’m so sorry!! My heart can’t take being freaked out very well either. I’ve cautioned my kids that they should limit their pranks to those which won’t cause me to drop dead. But forgive me, dear Haros, I have to admit I burst out laughing just imagining your reaction to that scene for the very first time! It’s seriously creepy!

            “If I would have had a heart attack watching your video and Spanish doctors had identified coronavirus in me, would have they reported me as a new case of death by coronavirus…?”

            No doubt in my mind.

            • haros says:

              Oh don’t worry Pearl. At least you laughed, which is surely healthier than any substance coming out from a Pharmaceutical/Chemical company. Heart has to be trained too, so a good fright is good sometimes. But you did well cautioning your kids because their pranks can be a little bit excessive sometimes! About this scene, it is creepy, but at least now I feel like watching the movie.

              Spain is at this moment the second country in the world with more new cases of coronavirus (, so I don’t doubt either that they would report me as a positive. Not only that. I can imagine the headlines of newspapers: “3X years old man with no previous diseases dies of coronavirus. WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE”.

        • mary.c says:

  8. Dawn says:

    I’m in the UK and have just received a text from the government telling me to stay at home.
    From the research I have conducted over more than a decade into ‘disease’ and its real causes, I have to say that one of the most insidious parts of the propaganda about this so-called ‘crisis’ is the notion that there is an ‘infectious disease’ caused by a dangerous virus that people can ‘catch’.
    This is completely false. There is no evidence that any virus can cause any disease. This is increasingly being recognised by doctors and scientists.
    What are called ‘viruses’ are non-living particles that do not cause disease.
    People need to realise that there is nothing they can ‘catch’, which means that social distancing is entirely unnecessary.

    • mary.c says:

      Thank you!!!

      • Dawn says:

        You are welcome.
        The measures being implemented will not stop people from being ill, because modern medicine functions on the basis of fundamentally flawed theories about ‘disease’.
        When people realise there is nothing to ‘catch’, they will realise they are being duped – let’s hope that happens sooner rather than later!

        • mkey says:

          I expect that to happen about 2 thousand years after never.

          Following some recent examples of mass propaganda/psyop attempts that were thwarted (or at least appeared as such) in the public mind, I kind of started thinking that people were starting to get smarter. And boy, look at us now. The entirety of the western world subjugated by an unknown, invisible entity, in best case scenario, less than 1 micrometer in diameter.

          Considering the strong possibility viruses as such don’t even exist, only adds insult to injury. Which makes me believe most won’t even entertain the though they have been duped on so many levels because that will make them look stupid. And they are, stupid I mean, but looks matter the most.

          • mary.c says:

            I think we are being subjugated by a very well known and visible entity, its called the state and it’s best pal the media.

            If everyone would throw their televisions out the window, as I have been suggesting for years, the spread of the alleged virus would stop on a dime.

    • minnie says:

      This is so interesting Dawn. I am no medical expert, but I’ve had a personal theory about viruses for some time. I suspect that they are contagious, and they live in your system (who knows – maybe connected to the gut) and when you are physically run down, or get an emotional shock, that’s when they come out and do their worst.

      When Spanish flu hit, people had been going through unprecendented trauma, losing friends, relatives, being wounded or gassed in battle, having horrendous experiences and emotional shocks on the battlefield, etc.

      Common flu tends to hit in the winter months, when many people are in offices without sunlight day after day.

      If you have the right kind of gut bacteria, they can destroy the virus.
      This is just my personal theory. I could be wrong.

      • Dawn says:

        There are many reasons that people become ill at the same time, but they have nothing to do with any so-called virus. The particles called ‘viruses’ are nonliving; they are genetic material in a protein coating and possess no mechanisms by which they can cause or transmit disease.

          I’m no fan of modern medicine and successfully using homeopathy to stay in shape and combat health issues.
          A lot is involved in being sick or healthy, bacteria and viruses also, in both cases.

        • CQ says:

          Dawn, I appreciate your posting these comments and introducing us to the book you wrote with David Parker.

          I watched with great interest the interview Andrew Kaufman conducted with you and David. Wanting to thank you but not recalling in which of Corbett’s many articles and episodes and interviews on this subject I’d seen your name, I inquired on another thread; thankfully, mkey came to the rescue and steered me here.

          In the Kaufman interview, when you paraphrased remarks from medical professionals in the 19th century (I think that was the era you were speaking of) who recognized and spoke out about the system’s false hypotheses, it reminded me of some quotes from doctors of that day. Among them is this classic one from Dr. James Johnson, a medical writer and surgeon who was King William IV’s physician: “I declare my conscientious opinion, founded on long observation and reflection, that if there were not a single physician, surgeon, apothecary, man-midwife, chemist, druggist, or drug on the face of the earth, there would be less sickness and less mortality.”

          From my own experience, I’ve found that fear is the underlying cause of contagious disease. Along these lines, I call your attention to an article titled “Contagion” by late 19th century-early 20th century metaphysician Mary Baker Eddy, who wrote, in part: “Whatever man sees, feels, or in any way takes cognizance of, must be caught through mind; inasmuch as perception, sensation, and consciousness belong to mind and not to matter. Floating with the popular current of mortal thought without questioning the reliability of its conclusions, we do what others do, believe what others believe, and say what others say. Common consent is contagious, and it makes disease catching. People believe in infectious and contagious diseases, and that any one is liable to have them under certain predisposing or exciting causes. This mental state prepares one to have any disease whenever there appear the circumstances which he believes produce it. If he believed as sincerely that health is catching when exposed to contact with healthy people, he would catch their state of feeling quite as surely and with better effect than he does the sick man’s.”

      I am also in UK, Nottingham, and as you I have also received text from the Government.

      As you rightly mentioned, this lockdown will not bring any change, ‘infection; number would be presented, and people would be blames for them (not enough social distancing, staying at home etc). This in effect, will only brings more restrictions with dangerous Coronavirus Bill 2020 on the way.

      In addition, no one seems to care about economy. I am volunteering for CAB and I have just received email ‘warning’ us that when office open we will probably have massive increase in debt and welfare work. Both areas abused by Government on all levels.

      It is interesting that people cannot connect closure of services, retail and hospitality with future massive job losses. Also, mass media are having a ride with all the tragic theme driven stories.

      I hope you are right, they will wake up when their live would be significantly effected !

    • haros says:

      Hello Dawn, nice to meet you.

      I am extremely interested in what you are saying. I come from a medical background and during my unfinished PhD (I got extremely disappointed with science) I used viruses for different purposes. This is why is difficult for me to believe in the non-existence of viruses. Nonetheless, in the last weeks I read about this idea and, as I have said in another post, I stumbled upon the book “Fear of the invisible” by Janine Roberts. I find this very interesting for me and this is why I would like to ask you if you know any good and well researched books or documents about this topic to recommend. I would appreciate!

      • Dawn says:

        Hello Haros,
        I understand your difficulty in believing that viruses are not the cause of disease due to your medical background.
        Having spent more than a decade researching the question of why people become ill, we realised that there is no single book that covers the whole topic, so we decided to write our own.
        The title is: What Really Makes You Ill? Why Everything You Thought You Knew About Disease Is Wrong.
        It is almost 800 pages with 40 pages of references.

        • haros says:

          Hello Dawn,

          Thank you very much for the book. It seems like a very interesting and complete work to read. In another comment, a user has written me the Amazon link to it, so I will take a look to it when I finish my current readings.

          Have a nice day!

    • brian.s says:

      Exosomes are created by cells for functions that are part of the body’s immune response to toxicity – and so they are not an isolated cell activity – but a call on the whole to align the functional need. That we flag the process of clearing and regenerating as the ‘disease’ is to then suppress and attack symptoms as if they are causes.

      The reversal of effect and cause is characteristic of a consciousness and a world in which
      “Everything is BACKWARDS; everything is upside down! Doctors destroy health, Lawyers destroy justice, Universities destroy knowledge, Governments destroy freedom, Major media destroys information, And religions destroy spirituality”. ~ Michael Ellner

      The idea is not to attack the idea of a virus – but to question the mind-framing of its use.
      the idea of a virus goes back to toxic fluid in Ancient Greek times at least.
      The idea of contagion for a virus appeared with venereal disease in C18.

      Early scientists seeking for how life manifested, studied ferments – that were initially thought to be spontaneous creation. If you read up on Pasteur and Béchamp, you may also get an idea of why the truth is not allowed to get in the way of a good story – from the POV of those who profit from it in wealth, status or power, and those whose emotional or identity investment in it is considered too big to fail’.
      The above site is a huge repository of suppressed perspectives – which does not make them true – but generally means that they were held against the narrative, and at cost of loss of career or social exclusion.

      The Semmelweis complex.
      But necrotic flesh does generate toxins that are infecting if introduced directly into the blood supply (in his case inducing puerperal fever and death in childbirth because there was no washing of hands between post-mortems downstairs and deliveries upstairs.
      While celebrated today, he was thrown out for suggesting surgeons wash their hands, and as I have it; incarcerated to an asylum and allowed to die there from wounds resulting from being beaten.

      Perhaps is a parallel reality he might have found a way of allowing them to discover this rather than perhaps directly challenging the Model of the Day.

      How do I get anyone to question the germ theory?
      I simply cant – and don’t need to take that on. But I can work with any willingness to recognise choices being made AS choices and support their power of choice in a way that invites more conscious responsibility for better choosing in terms of their outcome or result.

      The belief in a disease diagnosis can kill – even without toxic treatments – if the spirit is overwhelmed by the shock. It is no good pretending we dont believe what our emotional and physical reactions reveal we do. And so there is the call to find our WHY we believe it or in the sense of my opening remark – WHAT purpose is the belief serving for us – such that it is protected and reinforced even if we realise it isn’t ‘true’.

      • haros says:

        I thank you very much for your insights about this topic and for taking the time to answer me so thouroughly.

        As far as I have understood what you are saying, and it is also mentioned in the preface of the Janine Roberts’ book (I haven’t read the whole book yet), virus are exosomes: just vesicles excreted by the cell to the extracellular space to send signals to other parts of the body. An analogous to neurotransmitters, hormones and other substances. Viruses wouldn’t be the infectious (causal) agent of the disease but the response (or effect) of the body to deleterious stimuli.

        I was going to say that in this hypothesis something didn’t convince me very much, and is the fact that there are bacteriophages: virus which affects bacteria. But actually, there could be explanations for the existence of these entities, like for instance (and this is just a baseless thought, product of imagination) that these phagues are created by some species of bacteria to destroy other species, to get access to nutrients (that is, to destroy competition).

        Anyway, as I said, I thank you for your explanation and I am going to dive deeper into this story because is very interesting to me. I had already seen in a comment of another website a link to “”, so I will explore it.

        • brian.s says:

          Might be better to say exosomes flagged as pathogenic are called viruses.
          My current take is that viral signals can initiate a detox (fever, cold etc) is a function of the (whole body) that may be triggered by a toxic load or backlog in cells. It may also be a periodic cycle or a species response to toxic exposures – ie Wuhan and N Italy had very heavy air pollution zones – as it central Spain.
          The virus is not actually alive, so much as a messenger of communication function, and in detox respect is a solvent for toxicities that kill other bacterial or macrophage cell clearing processes.
          No doubt scientist try all kinds of things to cultivate and modify viruses – but they grow from and in living cells.

          Bechamp (contemporary of Pasteur – had the right science – but Pasteur had the better story.
          Pleomorphism posits that the cell creates and mutates the biota according to the terrain and that the (relational) terrain is the principle – not the apparently rogue pathogen (our alter ego?).

          Relational balance that serves life can be anthropomorphised as war or competition, but this is our ‘rogue thinking’ and coded as the front end of our personality level experience.
          Therefore to recognize the patterns as expressions of life as wholeness in all its parts is to pause and step back from the fight flight mode of thinking that rises from exclusively identifying the body, The relational field can be called subtle communication.

          Everything is always in – or of a quality of communication and energy exchange – from which nothing is actually separate or actually a closed system. But that doesnt make everything homogenous in nature and function. It does make it workable as a framework or patterning through which ‘creation’ unfolds and expands new perspectives – all of which are part of the whole of which they extend.

          Biota or microbiome or whatever yu use to point to it – is a biological matrix of support for the life that evolves – perhaps in shifts and spurts that we (mostly) do not want to accept because it would upset a steady state uniform gradualism – over which we can rationalize.

          Structure binds up energy and the breakdown of structure releases energy. Both of these are going on interweavingly.

    • B00ND0GGLE says:

      I’m intrigued, Dawn. And I have a question:
      In response to the spread of HIV, the anti-germ-theory idea has sprung up a number of times in the gay community. And (spoiler alert) the mainstream gay community shouts them down: “you risk lives by pushing ideas that excuse risky behaviors when this virus is real!”
      Well, I’m a member of that community since 1992. and I’ve witnessed outcomes of those fortunate enough to test negative, of those who tested positive, and those who chose not to get tested at all while engaging in high risk activities. My uncle tested HIV+ in 1985. He survived but nearly every gay man he knew is dead. We’ve discussed the anti-germ-theory. And it simply doesn’t hold up to all we have seen, although I do hate groupthink and despise dogma.
      So i wonder if there’s something I missed? Was there anything in the book to explain how all these people got sick and died without the pathogen?
      And by the way their SHOCKING revelation that a virus isn’t a living thing ain’t. Unless you never paid any attention during elementary school science class.

      • brian.s says:

        There are two things come to mind – was is a psychic shock of nocebo – in being diagnosed with incurable disease of limited prognosis. I have heard that a two year prognosis can operate like a switch in cancer patients even when the tumour is gone and the condition in remission. Voodoo.
        Trying to get OUT of a negative is the reinforcement of the negative, Matching the vibration is being equal to our experience. Do we learn this at school?
        The other thing is the treatments – whose ‘side’ or rather direct effects are generally attributed to the diagnosed disease or as a progression of disease.

        The first drug AZT was so deadly in its blocking of new cell generation that it was banned/withdrawn as a cancer treatment. Not destroyed (never are) but redistributed as a ‘powerful’ drug to combat and ‘incurable’ disease. I read that in trials the community in trial soon recognised the placebo and in conditioned scientism believed the ‘new drug’ was a great hope and so they secretly share some of it with the placebo group.

        In some ways it is more disturbing to uncover what happened/s that the cover story.
        there are aspects to ‘risky behaviours’ that are undermining of immunity – but the projection of payback to a virus is also a way to protect the ongoing but modified or moderated persistence of them.
        Overuse of poppers is one. Persistent antibiotic flushes from ‘STD’ is another.
        If anything is addictively engaged it is symptomatic of underlying conflicts.
        There are all sorts of patterns that can be discerned as potentials. But when Gallo heard about the diversely caused few cases – he was already discovering his ‘retrovirus’ and even toured with the discovery before his assistant had found it – to then fraudulently doctor the paper so as to save face. (He had already been rejected with a previous retroviral claim).

        Life knows itself through rhythmed energy exchange and conducting it is a balancing act. For the body – and for the consciousness that knows itself through the body – but which can so easily block its own function – and from a blocked sense of life go seeking substitutes that reinforce the blocks rather than release them – and of course this is heavily socially reinforced.

        Note the Science pronounced HIV > AIDs. It doesnt now.
        This virus hasnt been ‘isolated’ and the testing for it is for markers that can be assigned to other know disease conditions, but marker based medicine doesnt have to have any symptoms to operate the disease-fear-solution dependency.

      In other words it would be safe to be on a beach as long as an exam is given, it could be a simple multiple choice one like this :-

      [A] Water.

    I can’t bear the word “lockdown”. I had never used it before this crisis, and I feel that it’s being “normalised” now.

    I think this situation will continue intermittently until the vaccine is released, and then anyone who refuses to be vaccinated will effectively become a social leper, banned from the workplace, leisure centres, maybe from shops and restaurants.

    Maybe that’s when agorism will come into its own, as people who refuse to take the vaccine will have to set up their own communities and services.

    Can microchips be injected? Pets are injected with them, so I suppose they can. Sometimes I think I’m being paranoid, but then we’ve come so far towards a police state in such a short time.

    “Then cholera hit!”

    Perfect for the Propaganda page!

    Belatedly and just for the record I’ll leave this gem from The Guardian and Hollywood that comes virtiginously close to proning Martial Law:

    “The US military would be superb at fighting coronavirus. Let’s use it

    After the 2010 Haitian earthquake, we saw the US military in action as a humanitarian force. They can do this


    -Ann Lee, the CEO of Community Organized Relief Effort (CORE), an NGO that works to save lives and strengthen communities affected by or vulnerable to crises

    -Sean Penn, the founder of CORE

    “…To aid Haitians after the earthquake, the United States government deployed the most effective logistical and humanitarian organization the world has ever seen: the US military, which in Haiti included 22,000 soldiers, the Army Corps of Engineers, and the USNS Comfort, a 1,000-bed trauma hospital ship. US soldiers distributed food, organized health facilities, set up clean water access, and provided security.

    During its three-month deployment among an understandably volatile population, the US military knew that being seen as an occupying force would hurt its ability to help those who needed assistance. Under Lieutenant General Ken Keen’s command, US soldiers in Haiti embraced a culture of compassion rather than force.

    Working alongside them at the country’s largest tent camp allowed our organization, CORE, to effectively take over and manage a 60,000-person camp, with drainage, organized blocks of tents, and a hospital.

    Then cholera hit. Much like coronavirus, cholera’s spread can be managed with careful hygiene and quarantine. The US military and the CDC worked rapidly to distribute supplies, establish treatment facilities, train healthcare workers, and implement a national cholera monitoring system.

    This was in Haiti, where public health infrastructure is limited and in some places nonexistent. Imagine what the US military could do here in the US, right now, to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

    We need to buy time for our scientists to develop a vaccine…”

    • manbearpig says:

      Yup, as our Hollywood hero Sean says, cholera just “hit”…
      …in a country that had never suffered from it before…

      OH WAIT no! It was introduced!

      July 8, 2019
      Negligence and Unaccountability at the United Nations
      Theodore Dalrymple

      “…The prima facie evidence about the introduction of the germ into Haiti by the Nepali soldiers was very strong. First, the very fact that there was so sudden an outbreak in a country that had never suffered from the disease before suggested that it had been introduced from without. Second, the first cases appeared near the Nepali encampment. Third, it was known that Nepal was experiencing an epidemic itself at the time. Fourth, there were credible witnesses to say that nauseous waste was emptied directly into the river from the encampment, and there was an open cesspit nearby dug by the encampment. Subsequent investigation demonstrated that the cholera germ was genomically almost identical to—very nearly the same as—that which caused the epidemic in Haiti.

      Nevertheless, enormous intellectual energy went into denying the obvious…

      …Of course, no Nepali soldier deliberately brought cholera to Haiti, any more that UNICEF deliberately poisoned millions of Bangladeshis…”

      [Well NO! OF COURSE NOT! Maybe they would shoot 22,000 rounds fo ammunition into innocent people’s homes from helicopters and shoot babies at point blank range but they would NEVER DELIBERATELY infect these same people with cholera no no no!]

      “…On the other hand, negligence on a large scale was almost certainly involved. The UN employed Nepali soldiers for a task which possibly did not even have to be done because they were cheap—in monetary terms. But you hardly have to be Robert Koch to know that special care has to be taken when moving people from a cholera area to one that is free of cholera (I myself was once briefly held in an isolation camp in Iran, having passed through Afghanistan—where there was cholera—to Iran where there was not). Both the Nepali and the UN authorities were therefore seriously, indeed devastatingly, negligent.

      But the United Nations was born with Original Virtue, and certainly with Original Legal Immunity, which is the nearest we come to innocence these days. The Haitian population has received no compensation for the introduction of one of the few plagues that it did not already suffer from. One’s blood boils to read of almost casual dishonesty of UN functionaries, willing dupes, and condescending editors of journals who preferred to save the image of the United Nations than prevent death on a large scale, and in the end did neither…”

    The technocratic agenda goes wild with the covid19!

    Anyway, interesting numbers:

    So Far, The Number Of Americans That Have Died From COVID-19 Is Greater Than The Number That Have Recovered

    I estimate that about 2% of the infected were hospitalized.
    Most people with health conditions, few people with none.

    Of the hospitalized people:
    South Korea: 3% death rate.
    Italy: 45% death rate.
    USA: 72% death rate (only 600 case)

    This is weird.

    First: we have no idea of how accurate these number are.

    Some of the difference is probably due to the fact that the healthcare
    is so different. In the US people don’t go to hospital that easily,
    due to the huge costs. Even testing costs a lot of money.

    There might also be different medicine usage, like blood-pressure
    medicine, or drinking/smoking (wine in Italy).
    This makes it easier for the virus to get a severe infection.

    It could also be related to different virus strains.

    There are also different stories about how long the virus can survive
    on surfaces. From 3 hours to 3 days.
    According to Chinese research, 1/3 of all infected people will never show symptoms and still spread the virus.

    There are reports of normal medicine that work against the severe
    infections, like the anti-malaria drug. Also some anti-aids drugs
    seem to have effect.

    • mkey says:

      There are drugs that are quite toxic. Vitamin C IV is probably what worked best for Chinese.

      Regarding lies, damned lies and statistics, there are many more factors out there.

      Like the air quality, a factor that influences pulmonary disease greatly.

      What’s also important is how the deceased statistics are being chalked up. Dying from covid-19 is not the same as dying with covid-19.

      Covid-19 tests are also very questionable, that is the way the testing results are handled is questionable. Have you seen (one of the covid-19 test’s) manufacturer specification?

      Says This product is for research use only and is not intended for diagnostic use.

      Can it be more blatant? I’m not sure it can. False positives abound, but the media doesn’t care and people will not stop cheering.

      • Sebastian De Clarke says:

        Is this is the one currently used in diagnosing the virus?

        ‘should not be used as the only evidence for clinical diagnosis and treatment.’

        So, what would be additional evidence?

        • mkey says:

          They affirm that this test should be used as indication only, to be confirmed by symptoms, history, response to treatments and other tests.

          History – most notable is contact with others who are “infected”. How was their status confirmed, with one of these tests? Were they asymptomatic?

          Response to treatments – as far as I know, there aren’t any.

          Other tests – which ones? PCR tests seem to be very inapt at determining the amount of proteins (these tests don’t detect the “virus”, they detect and blow up proteins) which would indicate how active the “infection” is.

          Symptoms – cough, fever, shortness of breath. Kow many diseases cause these? I’d say the first two are useless on their own in this regard. If further tests (scans) reveal a precarious pulmonary state that was absent up to until recently, then that could serve as a good indication combined with a “positive” test result. In case of chronic pulmonary disease, the test is pointless.

          Considering these points, can this test be used for confirmation on someone who doesn’t even have any symptoms or has “mild” symptoms? I would definitively say no to that question. Of course, I’m not an expert, but I’m also not a juiced up psychopath who stands to make a killing on this venture. Pardon the pun.

          Considering that most of “infected” have absolutely no issues at all, besides being locked up for no good goddamn reason and publicly shamed, we have to start interpreting these statistics.

      • zyxzevn says:


        The medicine are toxic, but at least something is working
        for the people that are scared by the mainstream.

        I don’t think they will see Vit-C as a solution.
        Are there reports instead of rumors?
        It is an acid too and maybe that is how it works.
        Anti-malaria medicine works by making the cells so acid,
        that the virus can’t replicate.

        Did you know that Vit-C is a poison for most life?
        But humans need it to survive. Crazy nature.

        I wonder how ozone therapy is working on it.
        Did the Chinese have any success with that?

        I would love to replace the corrupt medicine industry,
        but we also need something that really works.
        Otherwise it will be shot down in an instant.


        The tests are hard, and there are different tests that
        are around. The US does not use the South Korea tests,
        due to not-invented-here. And we have no clue how accurate
        they are.

        The severe infections seem to cause breathing problems
        that seem different from other diseases.
        While it is used for scares, it seems that it
        worries doctors enough.
        I have not yet heard of doctors from the areas, claiming
        that Covid19 is just like the flue.


        Italy really seems to have problems.
        I have no clue how severe the US strain really is.
        And why do we not know exactly?

        And this is where I suspect the western medicine and
        western food might be a cause for the health problems.

        • mkey says:

          I haven’t found any sources for medication, just claims and mentions. The strongest assertion for chloroquine comes from prof. Raoult who seems like the right guy to make such claims. The connection was made thanks to, supposedly, the drug being proficient against other strains from the corona family.

          But if statistics are to be trusted, the Chinese, Japanese and South Koreans got rid of this, whatever it is.

          I wasn’t aware that vitamin C is poisonous, as far as I understand most mammals are able to synthesize it themselves.

          I’d wager that all PCR tests are the same when it comes to determining the actual state of the infection. That’s not what the test was designed for.

          Italy has a problem mostly in regards to how they count deaths. Many reports show that the actual Covid-19 related death rate is max 12% of all the corona related deaths. They simply put these figures all on the same pile and lebeled it CORONA. Panic ensued, nobody expended effort to correct the statistics after inquiries have been done.

          Even the Italian president of the civile defense states how the deceased died with covid-19, not because of it. At least until inquiries are made.

          Now many of these crazed memebers of the public seem to be hooked on the fear porn and don’t want to give up on the jacked up statistics.

          • zyxzevn says:

            There were some reports from Italy:
            – a 4 fold increase in the number of deaths.
            – some hospitals had a 3/4 of their beds for Corona patients.

            But as you state, a lot of these might be to cause
            fear instead of honest reporting.

            Do you have a source for the 12% number?
            It would be nice to have these numbers side by side.

            There is a lot of uncertainty and craziness.
            There also seems to be evidence for a serious disease.
            Italians thought it would be over quickly too.
            They don’t like to be inside at all.

            Besides all that there is a clear technocratic agenda,
            which tries to push the society towards a world,
            controlled by elites.

            Ascorbic acid is used primarily as an antioxidant, which can provide multiple benefits to food products. Slowing the oxidation preserves color and freshness. The low pH of ascorbic acid can help prevent microbial growth, thereby preventing spoilage and preserving freshness

            I think that the acidity may also disable some viruses.

    I live in a pretty liberal area of Baltimore, MD, about 4 hrs south of NYC, and it’s been pretty remarkable to see what’s been happening in our neighborhood. The normal bustle of day to day life has subsided and people seem to be taking the time to enjoy activities that they otherwise wouldn’t have either the time or the energy for. Everyone is out walking with their dog, you have fathers and sons playing catch, people working on new skills in public parks, and what has been most encouraging is the amount of people that have pulled together to support local businesses as they struggle to survive. There is no sense of panic, everyone is keeping a relative but friendly distance when crossing paths with others, but you’re seeing a “new normal” emerge that seems to be more conscious of the things that are important in life like family and friends and the importance of where to spend ones money and the reliance that our neighbors have on one another to just survive financially.

    Now this is in stark contrast to what is being reported by larger news agencies such as The NY Times, Washington Post and CNN which consistently paint doom and gloom scenarios. Reading our local paper The Baltimore Sun has become my go to source for news as they paint a realistic picture of what is happening in Maryland and the effects that this is having on hospitals, schools, businesses and just citizens in general. It has been a refreshing source of news on a local level and I am hopeful that it can help lead to a future in which our city can provide support locally to its citizens.

    Of course I am also located maybe a half mile from Johns Hopkins so it is interesting to see their projections and insights added to national news pieces designed to elicit a sense of fear. On the other hand it was interesting to see an interview with Jason Bermas that was a bit, uh, Alex Jones-ish on this very website so I’m not sure anyone is covering this event perfectly. I think at the end of the day all we really have is our community and it is more important than ever to come together and support each other. I have been fortunate that no one has been yelling out their windows at me as I take my daily walks so I’m not sure how NYC will survive this, but for the rest of us Americans who aren’t entrenched in the crazy news cycle of NYC, it will be so important to consider who you are getting your news from and what agendas they are trying to push. Generally smaller local papers are not trying to indoctrinate the masses and cause hysteria, so perhaps it’s better to “buy local” and support those who are just citizens trying to survive in your own community.

  19. Thanks for all your work, James & community!! <3

    I have finally visualized and shared one angle which I think is a significant logic bomb regarding the mainstream overreaction. Using only the mainstream facts, it seems there should have already been 100,000 to 1,000,000 global fatalities by now…


    On Dec. 31, Chinese Health officials inform the WHO about a cluster of 41 patients with a mysterious pneumonia. These would not have been the first cases of infection. Most people do not show extreme symptoms, and it can take a couple of weeks for the worst cases to need medical assistance. So I think November 23 is a reasonable guess for the latest possible date for patient zero, infection #1.

    Most of the earliest cases would be very unlikely to be identified or controlled, let alone ‘hermetically sealed’ between country lines. Only a few subsets would have been significantly controlled. It is precisely because of exponential growth that I personally assume this virus covered the world months ago, and is not nearly as dangerous as infinitely repeated estimates.

    For the sake of my thought experiment, this hypothetical uses a guess based on expert estimates of infections doubling maybe every 5 days.
    ( e.g. )

    Graph & Spreadsheet:

    The rest of my comments were aimed at a much broader audience than Corbett Report minds who were /Ahead Of The Curve/ 😉

    There are always large logic omissions at the start of wars, and this perspective has weighed heavily on me in resisting the popular narrative. I hope this experience adds massive hospital capacity expansion to the preexisting needs for fundamental healthcare reform. And every avoidable death is tragic indeed, so especially when dealing with massive scales of impact, it is vital to weigh both the pros and cons of actions and inactions.

    I am simply shocked at how little data can convince modern “free” citizens to beg for [voluntary] martial law. If our society truly held science high, it should actually have more skepticism on most expert claims, not less. I think it is still human hubris to risk too many lives on our best models for most nested, chaotic non-linear systems, with more unknown variables than known. Sorry friends, I think we’re another 50 years before I might trust Technocracy over what representation is left in this “democratic republic”.

    So when we get into the slippery slopes to martial law — either 1984 style or Brave New World style — then we’re talking about basic human freedoms of movement, gathering, and increasingly in the future… a choice of experimental vaccinations. Please stay calm, think thoroughly and skeptically about all the information projected at you, and remember how much informed consent matters to the world we want to live in. ❤


    Things were fairly chill in the sparsely populated hills and forests of western Maryland. There's a mix of trust in the panic here, largely Red/Trump county.

    Of the many things I’ve read in the past, Dr. Tjeerd Andringa’s excellent study called “Geopolitics and Cognition” keeps coming to my mind. I’m going to read through it again. Here’s an excerpt from part 3, but I strongly recommend starting at the beginning:

    3.2 Normative threats

    Social norms — and not a deep understanding of society — form the eternal and unquestionable basis of authoritarian behavior; consequently authoritarians cannot respond flexibly to changing social norms. In fact they respond highly fearful to what Stenner calls normative threats (2005, p17):

    I refer to these critical catalysts as “normative threats” or “threat to the normative order”. By the “normative order” I simply mean some system of oneness and sameness that makes “us” an “us”: some demarcation of people, authorities, institutions, values, and norms that for some folks at some point defines who “we” are, and what “we” believe in. “Normative threads” are then threats to this oneness and sameness. In diverse and complex modern societies, the things that make us one and the same are common authority and shared values. The conditions most threatening to oneness and sameness, then, are questioned or questionable authorities and values: that is, disrespect for leaders or leaders unworthy of respect, and lack of conformity to or consensus in group values, norms, and beliefs. [Original emphasis]

    Stenner defines normative threads as changes to oneness — adherence to norms — and sameness — how divers the group is in coping behavior. For authoritarians these are the central indicators of the adequacy of their coping behaviors and to determine who is good and who is bad. Together they form the well from which all purposeful behavior they are capable of stems from. And when this well cannot generate rich enough behavior to control their environment, they feel trapped in it. So a normative challenge is, for an authoritarian, a direct attack to their ability to cope and therefore their ability to feel in control.

    The Authoritarian Dynamic –

    Stenner calls this the authoritarian dynamic which she describes as:

    “intolerance = authoritarianism × threat”

    The stronger the authoritarian tendencies and the stronger the threat level, the stronger the intolerance to differences. This entails that the authoritarian will show quite predictable behavior in times of fear: (s)he will be intolerant to (perceived) influences that make the world more difficult to cope with and will do everything to reduce the world’s complexity to manageable levels or simply to prevent it from increasing. This of course leads naturally to the assignment of other people into ingroups (who do not raise or threaten to raise complexity levels beyond coping capacity) and outgroups (who do).

    What happens if another switch is flipped, shutting down sites like this, cutting us all off from another? As quickly as things are degenerating, maybe it’s time to seriously discuss and explore other methods/platforms of communication. Honestly, I don’t think I can go through this “alone”.

    Hi James, I’m in Michigan in a small town that’s hardly noticed by anyone. It’s exactly as you called it. “Papers please” it’s only the first day of the “Stay home, Stay safe order” my employer is on the exemption list and we received our paperwork to show to law enforcement if necessary. They say it’s not a lock down, it’s not martial law and that the state police are given discretion, however it states it is true that it can be punishable as a misdemeanor at this point, according to an article by wwjnewsradio. In my opinion, It feels very much like preparation to soften residents of Michigan for what’s to come.

    and all the magic that they weaved

    that you were all diseased

    I live near an old timber town on the mid-north coast of NSW. Shopping yesterday was pleasant because there was not a mask or wagging finger in sight. What I’ve been seeing on the internet was mercifully absent from our reality.

    Sure, many shelves are empty and there are purchase limits on some items, but the great thing about my area is that many hard lines – between hippies/farmers/greens/hicks etc – have never been drawn. (Black/white lines have been drawn hard, but much of that has been recent.) Everyone wants to be or save something or other, but not at the cost of being un-neighbourly.

    It’s still an Australia of wide spaces and endless beaches around here, but the poison of television is in most homes. Our national broadcaster, the ABC, is a tax-gobbling Godzilla pretending to be Bambi and, despite taking a more earnest tone, it’s as trashy and manipulative as the commercial outlets. It even has the convenient effect of crushing the luvvie/left commercial media by duplication while leaving Murdoch standing tall as an alternative. (Tricky world, eh?)

    When I’m with neighbours and family now I say just the one sort-of political thing: Turn the media OFF. Watch some cricket or Rugby League if you must but as soon as the game is over and that six o’clock news starts, turn it OFF. There is enough conditioning and state propaganda just in a footy match without needing the explicit content they dare to call “news”.

    So rather than argue about “issues” I preach the gospel of OFF while avoiding discussion of parties or persons. For some reason, most people won’t defend the media even though they saturate in it. They’ll defend a Prime Minister or his rival, but there’s a kind of shame in defending a network. It’s like they know deep down. Could that be one of the enemy’s weak points?

    By the way, guys…turn it OFF.

    Just listening to national radio in the Netherlands. There was a discussion between the radio host, a 66 year old doctor and a younger docter. The 66 year old doctor would, in case of a corona infection, give up his treatment at intesive care to a younger person. Het said that would be a logical thing to do because of the changes of surviving. He said that everybody needs to make and have their own choice but it that it should become a discussion so people can start thinking about it.

    Good show. Yes, given the current coronavirus situation, daily vs weekly Propaganda Reports by James Corbett would be most welcome. Or…Every other day? When needed?

    Regarding the Brooklyn video — That locale in the video looked like Park Slope or Brooklyn Heights. Sequence also looked staged. I live in Brooklyn, a different area, Sheepshead Bay. Today (3/24/20), I walked around my neighborhood to drop off laundry, check on liquor stores, and look for a store that supposedly had Wet Ones (store was closed). It was a 1.5 mile walk round-trip during which no one yelled “Go Home…” at me, or at the dozens of others on the streets most of whom were wearing masks. Many also wore medical type gloves.

      I love the idiots with masks and gloves — they’re re-breathing lung butter while growing bacteria on their soggy hands — if you’re in an area that requires body-substance isolation precautions, get the hell out of that area — if you need to be there then put on a mask and gloves, do what you have to then get the hell out — then immediately throw the mask and gloves away!
      That’s a huge detail you’ve shared regarding Park Slope and Brooklyn Heights. Those areas are very expensive and “Well to do.” Id love to see a video of someone shouting “Go home, flatten the curve” in the Brownsville or East New York sections of Brooklyn. They’d be lucky to get their ass kicked, more likely’d be stabbed or shot. Cheers

        Loved this one, Jed. “Foken A” – something like that they used to say in the 80s?

      • candlelight says:

        Excellent point about the lung butter, which quite frankly sounds gross, but, whenever I’ve worn a mask to keep from breathing dust particles, sooner or later, it gets pretty grungy from sweat and moisture from my breath, and I want nothing more than to take it off. The idea, of course, with covid-19 is to help prevent larger air-borne droplets that are potentially carrying the virus from entering through the nose and mouth. Yet, I can’t see wearing it just to walk down the street. But, I guess everyone has their own comfort level.

        But, what I found quite funny was your “They’d be lucky to get their ass kicked…” comment.

        I don’t live too far as the crow flies from Brooklyn, and even though I don’t remember, they say that I was born there. If that sonuva bitch yelled at me to go home like that, trust me, the videographers, or the propagandists who distributed it, would have had to edit it directly after the second “go home”. Because I would have cussed that idiot out so loud, they’d have heard it for literally blocks in all directions!

    I began reading Propaganda, by Edward Bernays, before the coronavirus freakout began, but it is becoming more and more relevant to me as this event unfolds and as the propagandists are working their craft. Here are some passages from the book that struck me.

    “Modern propaganda is a consistent, enduring effort to create or shape events to influence the relations of the public to an enterprise, idea or group.”

    “This practice of creating circumstances and of creating pictures in the minds of millions of persons is very common. Virtually no important undertaking is now carried on without it…”

    “Sometimes the effect on the public is created by a professional propagandist, sometimes by an amateur deputed for the job. The important thing is that it is universal and continuous; and in its sum total it is regimenting the public mind every bit as much as an army regiments the bodies of its soldiers.”

    “They [the U.S. government during WWI] not only appealed to the individual by means of every approach—visual, graphic, and auditory—to support the national endeavor, but they also secured the cooperation of the key men in every group—persons whose mere word carried authority to hundreds or thousands or hundreds of thousands of followers [modern day: Tom Hanks (movies), Kevin Durant (professional sports), Sophie Trudeau (politics)]. They thus automatically gained the support of fraternal, religious, commercial, patriotic, social and local groups whose members took their opinions from their accustomed leaders and spokesmen, or from the periodical publications which they were accustomed to read and believe.”

    I live in the Napa Valley Wine Country, California, with a total population of over 140,000.

    They just announced 1 case of the Coronavirus. This likely originated when the Princess Cruise passengers who lived in Northern California were “evacuated” to Travis Air Force Base, and from there, one Napa Valley resident was transferred to Queen of the Valley in Napa. That single person tested positive.

    Now all cities in Napa Valley are swallowing the pandemic hysteria pill.

    All wineries are shut down. Ditto for restaurants, unless the provide pick up to go service.

    The tiny town that I live in (Calistoga, CA with a population of about 5,000) has only one supermarket, the CalMart.

    The City of Calistoga just sent out emails and text messages that effective immediately, CalMart is limiting shoppers inside its store to just 20 persons. Lines outside the store, spaced at six feet apart, waiting for the privilege of entering CalMart, is the new reality.

    Things are absolutely crazy.

    Another propaganda I’ve been seeing popup lately is “The deliberate slowing of the internet due to increased usage”. The funny thing is, there’s plenty of bandwidth for all, and taxpayers subsidize billions to telecoms every year. It’s all another artificially created problem.

    This slowing people’s internet in the name of safety is a soft test for completely limiting the internet. Not sure if James has discussed this recently, but I’m sure he has covered a version of this concept before. TPTB are using the crisis to let you know that even your internet can be cut for the ‘greater social good’.

    ‘shut the pub and take their licence off them’

    ‘Make no mistake. When loved ones are removed from your home by ambulance because the virus has hit them hard, you are not going to be able to follow them there’

    ‘From what I’m reading on social media quite a few people are ‘coping’ by ignoring the restrictions! I’m shocked just how selfish some people are’

    ‘WE NEED A COMPLETE COMPLETE LOCKDOWN. Too many people just walking and gathering as if nothing wrong.’

    Media distancing

  36. geisha says:

    Well, here in So CA, I am a lost soul/body. Although I appreciate solitude and often prefer the company of non human life forms, I find it ridiculous that those otherwise needing close contact to people, just swallow this edgy pill; and that w/o being interested in information that doesn’t reflect the official narrative (believe me I tried to share this site or ), there is this unwillingness to listen or even check out sources for other than MSM news; even otherwise smart people are stuck in the official story and keep 6ft away from even their friends!).

    I am even being encouraged by someone close to me to maintain a safe social distance to others, and I’m having a hard time with it all. Usually, I let those who seem to want to follow this distancing order, get out of my way (although I’m tempted to start pretend-coughing as they do so, and cry pestilence! randomly at socially distancing people). Mostly, I just step to the side of the 3ft sidewalk and let the person pass (they can walk in the grass or street if they want to achieve another 3ft).

    Even dogs are feeling the lack of proximity to other dogs’ butts which they need to sniff (I know, I am academically qualified to attest to this, seriously). I saw a mom with a stroller yesterday, both the toddler and his/her mom were glad to see another human being smile at them, the mom said, ‘she (the toddler) is so happy now because she hasn’t seen people for a long time’ – How pathetic is that? Somehow, the mom still walked out into the street to keep her distance. And I’m not sneezing, coughing, or gasping for air, neither do I look scared, sickish or frail while all this happened.

    The video from NY reminds me how easy it is to cause social tensions and even infuse hate among members of a society. Soon, our former friends or even family members may rat us out to the police if we keep breaking the distancing rule. Didn’t we learn and read about times when family members reported non-order followers to the rulers?

    Yesterday, the city closed the pacific beaches since young people ignored the social distancing rule. Which is sad as walking our dogs there was also healthy and refreshing exercise for us. But people understand this too. Bad young people. What will be closed next time when a group disregards this rule? House arrest for all, yea?

    What might be the reason for the entire ‘drill’? In my view, it’s not just a win for control-hungry governments and the profit-hungry modern medical system, but also a major win for the telecom industry and the further rollout of IoT- After all, now more than ever, everybody needs more bandwidth now! IBM is committed to develop a new Smart Health Care ‘ecology’ (what a word to use in this context) I read earlier today. Schools and universities are forced to tele-teach. Employees forced to work from home. Even the US veterinary Association now has a tele triage center to allow for healthy measures during these challenging times of the pandemic… The people who are losing their jobs as this new reality is going on, are probably considered worthwhile sacrificing for the greater good (of a few greedy companies).

    While it is amazing to see the intensity of this propaganda induced fear, I do believe that physical social distancing for most people is a “vaccine” for this coronavirus. It is said that the virus can last up to hours in the air. This suggests that most people will breath in virus particles. I believe that inhaling only a few virus particles degraded by physical distancing should activate your immune system and your immune system should defeat these degraded virus particles. I think you should then become more resistant and even immune to larger doses of the virus and most will not be infected by the virus or spread the virus. In my opinion, China is getting few new cases of the disease because the majority of survivors are now immune to the virus. I believe it likely that after few weeks of physical distancing, most people will have immunity to the virus and we can continue close physical contacts with few getting or spreading the disease.

    I suggest that most people phase out physical distancing after they have practiced it for a few weeks. But I think that immune system compromised people should practice physical distancing longer.

    The applause..all to well i remember when a few years ago influenza was a thing, spreading havely across the country and the government slogan was “our medical staff is killing the elderly! they need to be vaccinated” and in some parts of the country medical staff needed to wear a badge (no worries it was round not star-shaped) saying “not vaccinated”..

          the ability to „nut-shell“ was not laid in my cradle. Also this is a métier of my non- expertise.
          My noncompliant attitued seems to be going full time neurotic, so instead of a nut- shell version i can offer a (fully but cude) translated transcript of this interview.. gave it my best shot. Happy to offer it to anyones disposal.

          CAUTION contains some words which can trigger a hard yawn

          P.S. i do not share all of his conclusions in detail, like the decisions taken by politicians would be purly based on incompetence. But i believe he does give a „good“ global overview (or should i rather say a „sobering“ analysation from the globaleconomical perspective and the effects of this trigger called „hoax“ on its strongly destabilaized and imbalanced structure) focusing mainly on the EU zone, in particular on germany. When listening with a sharp ear or reading with an close eye there are, what i think to be, very interesting facts he points out with which he unknowingly/ unconciously rather hints towards a hidden agenda sounding very similar to a technocratic mindset rather than his direct statement of „incompetence“.

          This being the nut-shell version of my opinion

    since the federal council declared „state of emergency“ march 16th and only (due to effective call „stay at home, show solidarity“..not) most probably missing the curfew rule by a still to flat curve to justify such interventions..yet(but the frog is just beeing boiled a bit slower here, so one more „test“ was added to the „test test test“ statement) I still keep up my dayly walks in a Park in my hometown Baal. Now it seems that the walk in the park, which hasn`t a very-broad circle pathway, feels like the exercise a hamster experiences in its cagewheel. It has become for (me at least) a nonverbal exercises how close one can go passed each other which gives conclusion about their state of mind. There are people who already start panicing 50 m infront of you trying to find a 2m radius distance from every person (and on a sunny, blue-sky day without any of those strange broad „clouds“ there are a lot of people in this still-accepted but closely watched outdoor jailwalk). Then there are people who try and act normal and in the last second make a unnatrual big curve arround you. And then there are others who seem relieved when people walk passed them with out frantically pulling there scarve over their face, who smile when eye contact is successful. Also i notice something as simple as greeting is occuring way more often as usual with these people (greeting strangers is not very common here, maybe we have an antisocial gene). The walk, has become a strange challenge between interacting just by passing the next pedestrian, being aware of the bodylanguage and me trying to adapt a certain amount while trying to act normal… and now when writing about this detail of daily life it even sounds very artificial and abnormal. Little nudge of hope i felt that actually by this hole social distancing-madness certain people actualy connect more.. would be a nice nonmedical paradox-reaction for a time.
    even if not a english speaking country, we follow the “english is cool” doctrine- what else could possibly be the reason for not following the new rules? So “social distancing” is called “social distancing”(and i ask my self how many actually needed to look it up, and after not talking to each other, unplugging the internet and not answering the phone, are the cause that it has to be renamed to „physically distancing“ ) and #staythefuckathome is also a thing here
    our goverment even shot a short video for youngsters how to wash their hands and called it (translated) #soap-boss in 30seconds… explaination: yellow hands because it is the color of emoticons youngster use, and „hang loose“ (never heard of it before, never seen any one doing this sign here) handsign is cool and doesn`t require physical interaction for greeting eachother.
    If their ever will be a Top ten of “shamful measures the goverment took during the 2020 crisis” this would be in it.

    Our existing parenting and education models are designed to produce submissively obedient children, students, workers, soldiers and citizens. After all, we want children, students, employees, military personnel and even citizens who obey orders, not think for themselves. But this outcome can only be achieved by terrorizing children throughout childhood until they suppress their awareness of their own self-will so completely that they submit to the will of adults virtually without protest. Now devoid of their own unique and powerful self-will, they become sheep herded from one supermarket to the next by their own fear. No need for a shepherd.

    Then, when the global elite plans and implements its next move, using COVID-19 as ‘cover’ on this occasion, to consolidate its ever-tightening grip on the human population (more militarized policing, new and improved police/military weapons systems, privacy-abusing law, surveillance technology, facial recognition system, vaccination regime, genetically-mutilated organism, monetary or banking convenience….), it simply instructs its agents in the UN, government, education systems, the corporate and social media, and elsewhere to carefully explain why this particular response is so beneficial to everyone with genuine critiques confined to those few outlets with modest audiences, such as this one, that tell the truth.

    Terrorized into accepting adult dogma as a child, the typical adult now participates in many delusions, such as the one that the choice offered at elections constitutes having a say in how a country is governed. Devoid of the capacity to critique society beyond the most superficial level, elite propaganda is devoured as ‘knowledge’. And once their deeply-suppressed terror is triggered, these ‘adults’ will be readily panicked into doing as the elite directs. People in a terrified state are in no condition to defend themselves and their rights and so they readily give these up on the promise of not having to feel afraid.

      Insightful comment! So true!!

      To add to yours, here’s something from the site I mentioned up-thread:

      Children should:
      • obey parents
      • have good manners
      • have respect for elders
      • follow the rules
      • be neat and clean

      Children should:
      • be responsible for own actions
      • have good sense and sound judgment
      • think for themselves
      • follow their own conscience
      • be interested in how and why things work

    Hi James, first time commenting and just recently started supporting you, I have been adoring your work for almost 2 years now <3

    I live in Belgium (Flanders), we are not using the term lockdown for some reason but are forced to stay at home since march 18, well you know the non-essential things. Some people on the news wondered why they did not use the word lockdown as it could not be enforced more. I admit I had to think about this too but didn't take me long to figure out there still was no police/military control or silly bills you would have to fill out to go do groceries or take a walk in peace. So I'm hoping that does not happen but clearly they left a door open… (But not the borders, they are closed now)

    We are actually being advised to exersice regurally and can even do so with 1 person that does not live within the same house, but off course keep the social distance. There is also an "advertisement" running about this on the public television:

    There is a big "hashtag hype" #blijfinuwkot (translates roughly to #stayathome) going on, our minister of health coined this "meme" I believe over a month ago saying this to sick people who might be infected with Corona virus.

    This # is all over social media and of course the news, children are saying this on my TV screen. There are TV shows about this topic, off course to entertain people but to be more specific to make the people listen.

    The last century was really the century whereby marketing replaced news.
    From Edward Bernay’s successful marketing of commodities, to a corporate transnational media, owned by a few hundred people, or families, the last century created the ‘consumer’ and commodity identification with self.

    This is not surprising. Nor is the new terminology relied on to sell the colonization of subjectivity particularly surprising. After all, this is the Society of the Spectacle Guy Debord wrote about. Everything is mediated by corporate medi and imagery.

    Language is a logical servant for the elites..

    Words long ago became commodities in and of themselves. What is interesting about language is that when one thinks about it, language is really a distinguishing tool. Most language use is distinguishing or, hiding distinctions.

    We use language to distinguish one concept, one thing, one ideology, etc. from another.

    But what happens when language is hijacked?

    Language has now lost the ability to sharply differentiate. The commodification of language by capitalist consumer society has robbed most people of any critical awareness of the language they use, and the language of others.

    Many people rely on ‘idiot wind’ or phraseology from corporate culture.
    All the terms, from ‘new nor The loss of language abilities, the loss of reasoning abilities and the rejection of the Enlightenment has now left people without basic communication skills: language.
    mal’ to ‘social distancing’ are wisely picked by their users. Sophists, from Ancient Greece until this moment, have understood that rhetoric, language use, is a key element of power. That is why they were hired and highly paid by the ruling elites of Greece.

    I am reminded of the quote from a another human, Voltaire, who said: “He who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit atrocities.”
    Welcome to the old normal.

    Wow, just watched the thing and there are billions of comments already. Woof. You guys are quick.

    Two things.
    1 – I have an avocado tree and it’s full of avocados. Today the guy that does the gardening once a week came to work and I told him to take some avocados for him and his family, friends etc, and he, somewhat embarrassed, said “you know, I don’t think people will accept them.” ??? – So the panic, which is instantaneous all around the world, is achieving much more than could be expected or planned by the masters of the universe. Since no one knows exactly what the “problem” is, they start improvising and expanding, developing the material, as we say in music, so avocados from a neighbor? Maybe not, who knows, is he a leper? Are the avocados contaminated? Did the leper touch the avocados? Better not take any chances. Soon they’ll be locked inside little rooms, alone, with masks, trembling. Maybe they’ll kill themselves to, at least, not having to deal with it anymore.

    2 – I woke up with an idea. The virus is a metaphor. I remembered what a doctor once told me about the military coup here. “You know what the first thing the military did in the universities as soon as they got in power?” – he said. “They separated all the departments”. Apparently before the coup the university departments all talked to each other, exchanged ideas etc, and as soon as the coup started, they separated them. They … “socially distanced” them? So I thought “of course”. What happens when people get together and talk? They create ideas. That’s the virus the PTSB are trying to contain by any means. The ideas that spread around, that infect the minds, ideas of freedom and resistance. THAT is the virus. Eureka!

      Exactly my fear, which I expressed earlier this morning but my comment ended up in moderation so is now buried, but here’s part of it:

      “What happens if another switch is flipped, shutting down sites like this, cutting us all off from another?

        Yes. I see I’m not the only one with that fear.

        I just filed a comment that’s pretty heavy and dark, but it’s related to terms like “intolerance = authoritarianism × threat” and “authoritarian tendencies” and it gives a bit of actual illustration of what we’re talking here. This thing is already too much normalized, so terms, words, concepts, philosophies etc. One needs a bit of images and harsh fact to understand what’s behind that somewhat polite rhetoric. What’s behind those vehicles entering New York etc. The specter, the heavy shadow should be obvious, how far it goes, but it isn’t. I hope I don’t get fried by everyone here by that comment, let’s see.

    Hi James. I have been a long time follower for many years and recently became a subscriber.

    I live in Long Island, NY and they have shut down non essential businesses but supermarkets are still open. According to the NY “lock down”, we are asked to stay inside unless we are going grocery shopping, have to work, or exercise.

    I personally go outside every day and exercise multiple times out of the week at the park (and there are a good amount of people who are doing the same and/or playing with their children) I refuse to stay inside. But while I’m driving, I see signs urging the public to stay in.

    I work from home and I had a teleconference this morning. Some of my coworkers were saying “these are scary times and the best thing we should do is stay inside”. I told them this virus is not scary to me and I go outside every day. I then said what is scary to me is how this “lockdown” is becoming normalized. After my meeting, I got messages from others asking why I am going against the orders of the govt and that it is possible for me to get sick. I told them that I will not live my life in fear and have the govt dictate my every move. Maybe they view that as cynicism.

    I believe that this “social distancing” crap is just a way to get the public comfortable for a world controlled by the technocrats. A world where we communicate via teleconferencing and everything is at your finger tips without having to leave your home while 24/7 surveillance is being conducted and we are just mindless sheep.

    • Sebastian De Clarke says:

      This social distancing is flexible enough to be ‘’ misinterpreted’ by the public what allows power of be to accused public of not taking them seriously.

      Since when government is concern about my exercise regime? And yet, this guarantees that people will go outside, get blamed, and in effect be forced to accept tougher measures.

      Also, as you pointed out people all over the world react in exact way. In the UK police already openly stated that peer pressure might be required to keep people inside: citizen police is on the raise.

    It’s difficult to add anything to the great info and reports here, but I feel obligated to suggest something, now that we’re at this stage. I don’t think many of the 1st world nations are getting what this is, at least from what I read here, which is already 1000 times more informed than the rest, which are virtually beyond salvation.

    There was a report in 1983 in Argentina called “Nunca Más” (Never Again), created by something called CONADEP (Comisión Nacional sobre la Desaparición de Personas – National Commission on the Disappearance of Persons). I found this link in English:

    There’s also a Brazilian book related to that called “Brazil, Nunca Mais” (Brazil, Never Again).

    In English I only found a book called “Torture in Brazil” which appears to be the same book:

    I don’t know if Chile has something similar, but it’s the same story. And it is the same story now again, only global and with a completely different look. Despite this digital modern techno-look, the spirit behind is the very same, so I suggest reading those to understand what kind of spirit we’re talking about, and then connecting that spirit to TPTSB, Technocracy, the elites and all the rest. The title should have said it all: NEVER – AGAIN. It was chosen because something like that should NEVER happen AGAIN. To see it happening AGAIN is beyond unbelievable, but it’s less unbelievable than to see that no one knows it’s happening again, which in turn pales in comparison to the fact that many are actually cheering and applauding. If my grandfather had a heart attack merely from the election of Peron, he would auto-combust watching two seconds of what’s going on now. My mother too, thank God she’s not around to see this. It defies any reason.

    So please, if you can, have a look at those, disregard the old style, transpose it to these times and add it to the mental menu – and remember that it was all produced (orchestrated, financed, organized etc) by the CIA, School of the Americas and all the usual gang (not Americans, but the dark government, just to make it clear to the American friends). It’s not “losing personal freedoms”. It’s having “rats in vaginas” and “electric shocks in urethras”, that’s the spirit governing the world now, and that’s what I mean by madness, insanity etc – and that’s what 1984 actually means, since we use that so much. I’m suggesting this, but I myself could read only 44 pages of the book. I’m not strong enough, but many people here are. If we’re talking “preparedness”, one should at least know clearly what one is preparing for.

    I’m truly sorry to say this, but as I said, I felt compelled because we’re at this stage and the monster didn’t show its real face yet. I hope I’m only fear mongering out of pure fear.

        “There is no blood, no piles of corpses” – those are the really scary ones. I don’t think I have the stomach anymore. I used to watch “Faces of Death” and all that when I was young – and foolish … – but now? Not so sure. I was just calling attention to the real soul (possibly) of this thing. Maybe that kind of horror is a thing of the past, kind of they had to do it to exterminate the most resilient resistance etc, but now they’re gone, so no need for all that horror anymore – at least in the West. Who knows. As I said (somewhere), when I hear “military”, my hair goes up. Probably just trauma.

    things are getting progressively worse.

    All non-essential businesses (all excluding groceries, pharmacies and banks) have been ordered to close for two weeks.
    I even got a notice from my dentist saying they are required to close their services unless there is a dental emergency.

    Stores now are requiring customers to form a cue outside the store, count the number of customers in the store and limit entry into the store, one in, one out etc.

    Stores have installed hard clear plastic barriers at all cashiers,
    as well as markers on the floor every two meters, to guide customers where they should stand.

    Stores are also forcing customers to form one long cue inside the store at checkout, and then guiding the front of line customer to the next open cashier.

    Still no toilet paper or paper towels for more than a week…
    Food supplies (fresh meat) starting to dwindle and be rationed (limits).

    MSM in my country that used to have 30+ different stories on their home pages, now have wall-to-wall 30+ COVID-19 stories. You cannot find a single non-COVID-19 story on the home pages.

          Every time I read “armadillo” I think of the color yellow. You see, yellow is “amarelo” or in Spanish “amarillo”. Damn. “Why are they calling me yellow? Oh, wait”.

          Sonnés I could’t find. The people are all….?

          When I went to France, not speaking French made it a half-voyage. I was so mad for not speaking that I bought Stravinsky’s autobiography there, in French, so I’d force myself to learn. Didn’t work. The book is there on the shelve, looking at me and doing “tsk, tsk”.

          Look for “Brazil, Never Again” and you’ll find it. And god help me.

          While you go “outside” (shivers) I’ll continue translating Corbett’s Survival Guide. Then I’ll have to translate the MIT document, no way out of that one.

            “…Bolsonaro said this is all bullshit and people must go back to work etc because the economic disaster is worse than the virus etc etc, and since he said it, people are screaming…”

            Claro! Good Ol’ Boylsonaro has served his purpose PERFECTLY.

            In the 2018 Corbett Link below (about 7/8 of the way down) I clumsily (and perhaps unnecessarily) try to explain how there are universally reviled boogeymen such as Trump and Bolsonaro whose job it is to embody the opposite of what is considered right and moral.

            If they proclaim something must be done than this is the politically correct world’s cue to contemptuously denounce it and vehemently demand the opposite. Their job is to stigmatize the opinions and the people who deviate from the MSM consensus.

            a very puerile form of reverse psychology that in this global mentality of Adidas/Nike Coke/Pepsi Microsoft/Apple seems to work like a charm.


            ya know, I have the same armadillo/amarillo reflex!! I think I learned both words at about the same time in 1st or 2nd grade (At PS 75 in New York, New York I learned the colours, numbers and some basic vocab in Spanish for some reason).

            Nothing shocking about your military comment. Important reminder of what is and should never be.

            Still not translating, but I AM trying to revive my laptop that has Word on it. Amazingly, my laptop died just before TSHTF. Even more amazingly I had the reflex to borrow a Chrome Book from my employers before the whole operation shut down.
            But no Word on the chromebook. Easier to do translations on Word… Good excuse??

            ps: Oh! It occurs to me… I thought GBW was calling ME an armadillo ’cause I keep wimping out of translating. Guess I just imagine the whole world revolves around my own hairy person! 😎

                Yes –

                Just a thought.

                I just came back from the city – well, wee small town – did my little shopping (mocotó for the dogs), got a sfiha and a coconut water (água de côco), parked at the parking lot by the church and had my lunch there in the total quiet, thinking “So the end of the world came from fear of a ghost, who would have thought”. Before that, at the pharmacy, I half-jokingly said to the pharmacist: “I don’t believe in this virus bullshit”. Guess what. He said “Me neither”. My jaw dropped. He said “The after effects will be so terrible – already are – that it doesn’t make any sense. I’ll be selling anti-depressives like hell…” and we had a little chat about it. SO….if I’m not alone here, and this guy is anything BUT a conspiracy theorist, probably many people thinking (secretly) the same? At any other time it would be just nice, but given the current lunacy, it was inspiring. This goes back to … who was it that talked about hill billies? Maybe in the countryside the feeling is a bit different than in the big cities, even though they watch TV also? My guess is the salvation could come from the country, where common sense still shows up from time to time.

                Just another thought.

              • manbearpig says:

                This morning I was coming back from a nice long walk to the post office and supermarket when I came upon a neighbor, a young woman living alone in the same apartment building as I – I immediately expressed my incredulity at the “delirium” we were living through and she clearly wanted to talk about the same thing, the groupthink, fear of the neighbors denouncing you as a non-collaborator, the absurdity of the evening applause –

                she said that she’d heard that 70% of the calls the police were receiving these days were people denouncing their neighbors for going out twice in a day, hanging out with others, not respecting the 2-meter distance etc…when I finally made the overtures to end the conversation and go our separate ways, (she was heading out and I, in), she clearly would’ve been happy to keep on chatting, and said more than once during the conversation that it was a breath of fresh air to find someone else who shared her beliefs…

                she had nonetheless spent most of her free time during the week making tons of stylish surgical-style face masks that she was handing out for free to the elderly and shopkeepers – for which I congratulated her even as I honestly shared what I thought about this mask-erade

                and she almost imperceptibly but rigorously kept the 2-meter distance between us as we spoke in the street for over 15 minutes…

              • alexandre says:

                So interesting. Is this a French thing, this obedience? Maybe European? I ask because way back when I was visiting my friend Philippe in Arcueil, at dinner the conversation went towards GM foods, which was a kind of new thing, and he said “but don’t you think that GM could help solve the hunger problem in the world?”. Before I could say anything, his wife yelled “Philippe!!” The wife was Greek. So I started noticing that French people showed that acceptance to anything official much more than non-French. All very polite and educado, of course. Don’t know, your report made me remember that.

                Gov. Kevin Stitt should be more aggressive in the face of the spreading COVID-19 virus.

                On Tuesday, Stitt ordered the closing of all nonessential businesses in 19 Oklahoma counties where at least one person has tested positive for COVID-19. The order, which includes Tulsa County, starts at 11:59 p.m. Wednesday and lasts 21 days.

                Statewide, Stitt ordered an end to gatherings of more than 10 people. He also ordered all vulnerable Oklahomans — older people, those with suppressed immune systems and others — to stay at home except for essential business, such as picking up food and medicine.

    Here in NYC, the general public has been inundated with all the propaganda terms since the beginning of the rollout of COVID19 discourse in the US. The phrase “new normal” has been so unsettling to see so plainly used. It was being uttered ever since quarantining was becoming a thing in US cities and states. Right off the bat, “they” were already desensitizing the public to idea of martial law to the point where people are championing being prisoners in their own homes.

    This whole situation has been so surreal. I’m still in disbelief that this is happening and that the propaganda is so obvious yet not many seem to notice. That clip of the dude shouting “flatten the curve” just shows how effective the brainwashing is, especially with the subsequent push of the clip to the public eye.

    I personally keep forgetting the current reality every time I get lost in something else like cooking. While cooking, I’ll make a mental note to myself about what ingredients that I should buy as if it would be as simple as going to the grocery store like usual. But nope, the absurd reality sets in that I’m going to have to wait in line to get into some stores and then be limited to the quantity of items that I’m purchasing. It’s insane that within a span of a week in a half that something as mundane as grocery shopping is now this big ordeal.

    Never mind the fact that there is now a curfew in effect in NY where people are told to be in their homes from 8pm-5am. To me this screams something else besides the fear pandemic. Unless it was the weekend, most people, besides say some in Manhattan or those working night shifts, would be indoors already. This leads me to pondering as to why a curfew would be in effect. I can’t for the life of me wonder why they would enforce such a curfew if there wasn’t something else happening in the cover of night.

    I accept a lot of what is said here but I think James misses the point of voluntarism/anarchism completely in parts.
    Taking Mises’ definition of human action :
    “We call contentment or satisfaction that state of a human being which does not and cannot result in any action. Acting man is eager to substitute a more satisfactory state of affairs for a less satisfactory. His mind imagines conditions which suit him better, and his action aims at bringing about this desired state.”
    it is clear that man will act to bring out about more satisfactory circumstances and that the circumstances we enjoy are the result of this behaviour being exhibited by ourselves and others. It is also clear that sometimes the action taken can be unilateral and sometimes it involves influencing others.
    The non-aggression principle does not preclude influencing the actions of others it merely states that it is wrong to initiate force in order to do so. People using “shame” or social pressure to influence the actions of others is an integral part of NAP compliant human action. To think that people can exist in isolation from all others and not exert influence and have influence exerted on them is counter to nature of humanity and insupportable for an organism with a lifecycle containing stages of high dependence. Therefore the use of shame to influence others cannot be objected to by anarchists when it is exerted in a direction that they do not agree with (however much they might foresee that such non-violent action will lead to the strengthening of authoritarian collectivism) Living in a society of the insouciant is not justification for force, the only valid response is unilateral secession from that society.

    Do they make things a bit too comical and facile on purpose?

    To frighten Queenslanders ahead of lockdown, 28 people have just been declared infected by you-know-what after a birthday party at a restaurant. Those carriers have since dispersed through SE Qld with health authorities on their heels…

    That’s right! They been tested positive without being tested, diagnosed in dispersal! But our boys in the north will get ’em!

    I wonder if they keep those ultra-fast, remote-sensing diagnostic tests in the same kits where they keep their Al Baghdadi DNA identifiers (in case they have to kill him again).

    In other (very) Queensland news, Steve Irwin’s daughter is getting married at the zoo (of course!), just ahead of midnight’s lockdown. The distance police are right on to it…

    ‘“This is not cool. Putting other people’s lives at risk for her own happiness. Not cool. So not cool,” one man on Twitter said.

    ‘“I’m not the best at visualising distances, but those people crowding around Bindi Irwin are definitely not 1.5 metres apart,” another pointed out.’

    I reckon the globsters like to mock us. Sure they like to farm us…but it seems they can’t resist some blundering comedy as they do. That corpse rising from the dead after some whale-tusk fencing on London Bridge was their best touch since the Parson’s Green bomb which couldn’t even damage itself.

    Apparently 500 people died of Convid19 yesterday here in Spain. I have been told for the umpteenth time.

    Apparently 427,000 people died that year in Spain, (Interestingly, Spain has an aging population with more deaths than births, 39,772 that March.

    That works out at roughly 1300 people a day.

    So did 500 more people die than normal? 2000 deaths yesterday?

      Hello again Mary,

      I am going to send you, in the case that you are interested, an official website about statistics of Spain, the Instituto Nacional de Estadística. I don’t know if you speak or understand Spanish, but it has the option to change the language to English (I don’t know if it displays all the information in this language).

      Deaths according to cause of death:

      More general death statistics:

      Very high numbers of deaths attributed to coronavirus indeed. I can’t be sure, but what it might be happening is this:

      – Pedrito is tested (maybe he was already in the hospital) and the result is positive.
      – Hospital reports that they have IDENTIFIED coronavirus in Pedrito to organizations.
      – Organizations say: +1 case in Spain.
      – Pedrito suddenly dies of a heart attack due to his previous heart condition.
      – Hospital reports that the case with coronavirus has died.
      – Organizations say: +1 more dead by coronavirus.

      RIP Pedrito, but the cause of death wouldn’t have been coronavirus.

      Again, it doesn’t mean that it is happening what I am saying but seeing how they are doing diagnostics (RT-PCR, which only identifies genetic fragments) and reportings, it can be a possibility.

  66. Sebastian De Clarke says:

    Official statistics are 422 people died from Covid 19 in UK and according to mass information media around ‘80% is infected’ (No comment!!)

    According to Office for National Statistics in 2018 United Kingdom had 541,589 deaths with 45,132.41 per month and average 1,5 per day. Age and underlying conditions being the key factors just like in … Covid-19.

    Interestingly, mass media are constantly are warnings from Italty (nothing new here) and now … Spain. Apparently apocalypse is taking place there !

    Shockingly, we did not have massive uprising when United Nation published report about ‘A human catastrophe’ and condemnation for UK human rights record

    It is important to notice that in the United Kingdom people are hold dearly National Health System (ironically, for the last ten years underfunded and driven to the ground by present government) and this is one of the key manipulation tactic with slogans like ‘Stay home and safe NHS’, ‘ NHS ‘bowled over’ at response to volunteer campaign’, ‘NHS on the verge of collapse’ You are getting idea.

    However, the new low, and for me one of the most powerful evidencw all this is done on purpose is just simple image of apparently NHS staff’ taking pictures with funeral home staff and their car with the message of STAY AT HOME !

    Public is beyond the save !

    “…Lufthansa, Air France, and KLM are all reducing capacity by up to 90 percent…”

    Skies over my city have never been so clear and so blue…

    and no chemtrails…

    No air traffic = blue skies, right?

    Means all those grids in the sky were never “chemtrails” at all, right? Just normal passenger airline “contrails”. right?

    Doubt it.

    but it seems like someone’s trying to demonstrate just that…

    on another note, in the same article;

    “…Delta said it’s putting an unspecified number of passenger jets back in the air, flying out of 13 American airports and to 70 destinations overseas. Delta’s not selling any tickets for those planes, however. Rather, they’ll be operated by Delta’s cargo arm, running charter flights to cater to anyone who needs to move a package or pallet.

    By using jets outfitted to carry people to carry stuff instead, Delta’s following the lead of Korean Air and Singapore’s budget carrier Scoot. Others are likely to follow. Reps for British Airways and Cathay Pacific have said they’re considering similar moves. That may conjure visions of ghost planes carving through the air, but it’s a natural outgrowth of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    It takes the better part of a year to convert an aircraft from a people-mover to a pallet-porter, work that includes pulling out seats, galleys, and lavatories, refashioning the fuselage with larger cargo doors, strengthening the floor to accommodate extra weight, and more.

    Combine super low jet fuel prices, pilots who are being paid whether or not they fly, and historically high freight rates, and it’s easy to see Delta’s thinking. Shah expects more carriers to give it a go. “I think they can make the economics work…”

    Bet all these costly rehabilitation measures that take most of a year will send passenger ticket prices sky high… so to speak…

    “To help British Columbians who may have questions about COVID-19 symptoms, yesterday we launched a self-assessment app. In the last 24 hours, 18,800 users have downloaded it. The online self assessment tool on the BC Centre for Disease Control website has also been used almost 2.5 million times since its launch last week.”

    I am living in a small village off in the country and was fairly certain until a few years ago that I was in good company amongst level headed people who live in close connection with the land. Then bit by bit I noticed a shift in people : hyper-social and self righteous grouping, lauding novel speeches and causes that in some weird way were frighteningly devoid of depth, their feet had come of the ground and they literally did become floating heads. Can’t find the right words for it, but I have gotten progressively weary of it. As others have reported, the immediate, irrational and rather cult-like mass buy-in to the rather crazy storyline we are being force-fed as we are thrown in panic fast-track has been nothing short of surreal. The complete and willful lack of questioning of the people, but more importantly, the sharp contempt and immediate public shaming and shut-down of any who dares to question, even when responding with the very statements of WHO, CDC and you name it authorities, all that over such a large geographic scale, is more than strange. How is it that millions of people across all these countries suddenly behave so uniformly doped in the same shallow trance, and have lost all ability or will to weigh one thing against another? Even as the dictators announced that group meetings above 50 persons were henceforth restricted, people immediately and forcefully implemented self isolation and strict enforcement through neighbourhood shaming. I haven’t been out of the house in 7 days, and barely speak to anyone on social media, but when I do I make a point of stating that I do not fear getting this virus and actually welcome it to get this madness over with while I gladly self-quarantaine. Especially since the WHO, CDC and Society of world Virologists assure me that I am in the 80+ % that may expect a 2 week mild to moderate inconvenience or no symptoms at all. The unbridled hatred I receive is breathtaking.
    From the start I guessed that this was yet another pandemic exercise, a progressively stronger indoctrination towards the end game. I still think this was the agenda, but the crowd desire for domination far exceeded their expectations and so we are lurching towards the goal in rapid stride as the opportunity for maximum headway is claimed. Like some of you, I have to remind myself all day long that THIS is real, it feels so impossible, and desperation strikes.
    But this is nothing like the isolation I will feel when they cleanse and socially distance the last internet strongholds to break the last connectivity and resistance in people.

      Hello Mungjam,

      I’m very sorry because reading your words I can sense the strong feelings you have inside, which many of us also share in various degrees.

      Since I am going to quote some of what you are saying, I will use italics to make this message clearer.

      Then bit by bit I noticed a shift in people

      When did you start noticing these changes? I mean, are you talking about a period of months? Years?

      How is it that millions of people across all these countries suddenly behave so uniformly doped in the same shallow trance, and have lost all ability or will to weigh one thing against another?

      This is a great question. How come that people with different religions, social statuses, nationalities, education, and so on, are behaving in the same way? Could it be because the education has been uniform in all the world for years? Or maybe because of the uniformity on TV programs/movies/series/news? After that internet surely have had a big impact too. Probably a bit of all. Although it has happened the same at least a few times in history. I am seeing tons of parallelisms between the behaviour of people nowadays with the behaviour described in the first chapters of “Archipielago Gulag” by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (in Soviet Union).

      … and barely speak to anyone on social media, but when I do I make a point of stating that I do not fear getting this virus and actually welcome it to get this madness over with while I gladly self-quarantaine… [And more that the posted after this]

      Same. A few days ago a woman I know spoke to me on a social network and, after she was talking about coronavirus, I said that this lockdown was an attack against our liberty. Damn, I opened the Pandora’s box. She started writing about how bad was everything, how dangerous was the virus (she obviously knew more than anyone about what was happening), without even letting me to answer, like if she was having a rage attack. I had to tell her to stop with alarmisms and that I had to go.

      But this is nothing like the isolation I will feel when they cleanse and socially distance the last internet strongholds to break the last connectivity and resistance in people.

      I felt so sad reading this part of your comment… It was beautifully melancholic. Since it is important to fight against dispair, let me recommend you the book “Walden” by HD Thoreau. It has some of the best quotes I have ever read.

    I personally do not use Facebook, but my wife does. She posted the OffGuardian link from the show notes (Coronavirus Crackdown – Beware “the new normal”) and someone shared a link from a “factchecking” website saying that the OffGuardian website is a Russian Propaganda site. LOL!!

    So, of course they did not read the article nor check any sources. That would be blasphemous. It isn’t coming from MSM outlets like Fox, CNN, NBC, etc., whom they solemly trust.

    I cannot confirm this, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Facebook removes her link because it is considered “fake news” by the “fact checkers”.

  78. robert.t says:

    I’ll say it: This is a drill sent live, based around a strain of virus which may exist but the effects of which can easily be confounded with any respiratory ailment. The number of cases is so tiny the confounding is no problem. Old people dying in Italy and Spain at winter’s end? Hombre, that’s a statistical faker’s dream.

    If you wanted a disaster to turn on, adjust and turn off with ease, could you pick a better one than this? The numbers can be fiddled like the volume on a radio. And it’s not just numbers with a volume control. Remember how Kim Jong-un could go from murdering villain to cuddly weirdo and back to murdering villain in the space of a couple of months? (Not sure what his settings are today. Cuddly villain?)

    We can still take this back, but only if enough people turn off the globsters’ putrid media. Obviously none of what they usually talk about matters since it’s all been scrubbed for Fifty Shades of Corona and it’s made no difference. If they decide on a good bracing war because someone has done something mean to “beautiful babies” they might make space for that. Or maybe they’ll just do the war and park the news of it under synchronised swimming results. After all, they’ve just buried a major recession.

    I’m not smarter than anybody but I am less media-saturated than most. That’s how I know. I wouldn’t know otherwise. Once people are self-isolated long-term the media saturation will be absolute, part of the plan.

    I can’t argue too hard without alienating friends and neighbours, but here’s a question I can and do pose…

    If the news mattered, how come they can simply stop issuing it while “flooding the zone” with CoronaCoronaCorona. What happened to ClimateClimateClimate and MeTooMeTooMeToo and FireFireFire and GretaGretaGreta and ImpeachImpeachImpeach? If those things mattered, how can they simply be ignored for something else repeated monotonously or in needless variations? No room at all? Surely there must be some substance to what occupied us so intensely only weeks ago.

    And if the “issues” of a few weeks ago can simply be ignored now…what about this “issue”? What about the next?

    wow guys, over 300 comments already!
    It did not see any black fat Germany by HRS though so far
    Here I come.
    I don’t want to comment much on the situation (lockdown partially, full lockdown coming yes, laws in the making yes, handy data gonna be used yes) but wanna drop a link:

    Somebody at the off-guardian did translate some of the people (scientists, doctors etc.) the German indy-media discussed in the last days. So check them out! Of course not everything is golden, has perfect sense etc. what they say but they give good reasons that there is too much of a scare.
    The mainstream is hardly giving them any platform (some could appear though shortly in tv or did in mainstream-newspapers, one on radio and a big clarification added lol like wiki under youtube (or the health ministry site now).

    All in all we see a severe pushback from indy media and creators and some average normal people in Germany – which I am quite happy about -, obviously only made possible by doctors, virologist etc. who speak out, including translated statements from other countries, e.g. Italy.
    I also read somewhere that in the heavy hit region in Italy end of last year (autumn/winter) most of the elderly where vaccinated against influenza, flu or something. Sorry for not providing a link. Also Italy has terrible bacterial resistance rate (that the antibiotika doesn’t function I mean) which might be a reason for their numbers. (Also it was said private practice doctors were closed, so there is that, then there is a 2018 article (see t. me below) were clinics were already overloaded due to flu and I do not support the hypothesis that pollution or 5G has much to do with it).

    For German readers:
    sciencefiles is the major German indy platform who argues the virus is serious, so has a different stance but as usual criticises the government heavily too.
    (As I do not wish to exclude another important side of the debate)

    edit: to clarify, we mostly discussed person 1 and 2, Bhakdi and Wodarg and then several others (Köhnlein, Wendtner, Bassetti etc., see many of them here:
    and I do Not support Montgomery (bureaucrat, too much of a politician) (named in the off-guardian peace) in any way. his statement was probably included by the swiss propaganda research center because of addition of credibility, clout

    cheers everyone!

        addition: around 11:00 compliance
        demanding compliance has become a common tool/term/mindset among doctors. many of them are already pretty authoritarian and this compliance thought has just amplified it. many doctors will be totally in line (some not of course for various reasons, e.g. experience with the last crisis and shitty vaccine)

    I am in Canada and surprised not to see more 5G awareness going on at this level. There are local groups around here who are very concerned, and just posted pics of workers in Vancouver installing 5G transmitters while everyone is locked down and off the streets. Wuhan – 5G. Italy – 5G. Is anyone discussing how the lockdown could be a way of keeping everyone from noticing the rapid installation of 5G everywhere, and that when people start dropping dead from it, this can be blamed on the virus and justify more fear and martial law?

    • haros says:

      I don’t know if it has to do with 5G, because I am pretty sure that most of the people (at least in my country) don’t care about how many 5G antennas/transmitters they install.

      I think (as well as others for what I’ve read) that it has more to do with the psy-op they are carrying out: if people would continue their lives normally, they would see that there is nothing to worry about, so the lie would fell easily. But now everybody is at home, watching the non-stop stream of fear on TV and they feel that the world is set on fire.

      It is very disturbing, indeed, to see the street from the balcony and feel that you can cut the silence. Apart of that, the little amount of people who go to buy or to walk the dog, most wear masks.

              Actually I think that people is more different than we think. For example, there are people who live outside of the system but we almost never hear about them. But it is clear that the masses are extremely homogeneous, no matter if they are from Thailand, Spain, UK, Russia or China (at least in the behaviour regarding the Government)

              I understand you… Organizing people can be a very exhausting task. I hated to do works in group at university.

              The “elites” are genious of evil. We can hate or dislike them, but we have to recognize it. Just reading how some of them got rich demonstrate how intelligent (and wicked) they are.

              • alexandre says:

                Yes, the mass is like a giant dot with blurred borders. People who live in the borders (Hi, mom!), and beyond (aborigines?), are not a problem if the big dot is uniform enough. To develop it a bit more artistically, that dot is connected in the middle by a giant thick chain that goes up to the sky into a black hole. Wherever the black hole goes, the dot goes with it. What’s in the black hole? No one knows. (Thunder sound fx)

                They’re clever and efficient, yes, but that’s because they got rid of the one thing that keeps you from becoming the richest man in the cosmos: empathy. Once you get rid of that to the point of frying your son to “get ahead”, you’re on your way. And for that you must be either insane, possessed or very well trained. Probably AOTA.

            Weird ’cause on March 2nd, over three weeks ago, while discussing the coronavirus I mentioned the 12 Monkeys as being my favorite film

   (exactly half-way down the page)

            and then yesterday I convinced my family to watch it and was struck again by how pertinent it seemed and noted down certain quotes as I watched which I subsequently looked up on the net and posted yesterday here on the Corbett Report…


            Have you heard about birds for example suddenly learning how to do something new, such as pierce the aluminum seal on a milk bottle to drink the milk and then almost simultaneously on the other side of the planet the same species of bird with whom the first group has no contact also learns how to do this? Well I’m starting to think humans on opposite sides of the planet also have epiphanies at the same moment, for inventions and insights… was it Rupert Sheldrake who spoke about that? I can’t quite remember…

            TruthStreamMedia also mentions the MIT Review article I posted here on March 18th “We’re not going back to normal”… I watched to the end of their video to see if they’d include the Prince Philip quote about being reincarnated as a virus to deal with overpopulation…which they didn’t.

            When several months ago I saw “MidSommar” I sent them twitter messages and emails informing them that the Extinction Rebellion logo was the exact mirror image of the runes embroidered on Dani’s Midsommar festival May Queen dress but though they did a whole very long video about Midsommar, they didn’t mention the Extinction Rebellion logo… and they never answered me…maybe they never saw my missives…

              Funny about TSM. I sent them at least 2 emails some time ago and they never replied. Once was about technical stuff and the other about religion. Nothing. Silence. I guess they’re busy. Were you insinuating something?

              If I may suggest more of their videos, I just re-watched “Obsolete” and it’s funny to watch it now thinking coronawhorsemanure didn’t exist at the time. Then, as I was almost sleeping on the sofá, Google went on and played a WIRED documentary called “Shenzhen: The Silicon Valley of Hardware”. Many here probably know it, but here goes:


              Another one to watch with coronaidiotice in mind. There’s lots of stuff there, open Source this and that, smart the other etc, and the usual bullshit about the future and that normie perspective that can give you nausea. But someone like Corbett would extract a lot of juice from that, I think. And it’s China – trendy.
              What astonished me was the unimaginable amount of things I don’t want. You know, we usually think about things we want – a new watch, an iPhone, a Gibson, Gabriela Sabatini asking me out, things like that – but this was a symphony of things I don’t want and places I didn’t want to be at, and the funny thing is that I didn’t know I didn’t want. I didn’t know there was so much stuff I don’t want, I don’t know if I’m being clear. I found out how much shit I don’t want, that I didn’t know I didn’t want. See? It’s a philosophical conundrum, similar to known unknowns that we don’t know are unknown and all that. Anyhow, it reminded me also how utterly ugly the world became. For someone who loves Rembrandt and Velasquez, this modern techno world is an aesthetic vomit fest.

                Forgot about synchronicity. I had some with Corbett that were quite weird. I would think or comment on something and it would appear on his next video. At first I thought he saw my comment, but when I saw the dates, by the time I was writing, his video had already been done, so it was really coincidental. Two times. Does it mean anything? We’re on the same page or we’re conditioned to think the same thing at the same time? What’s your angle? Que trazes na manga?

              • haros says:

                Thanks for the link! I will watch it taking that on mind.

                In another comment I recommended the book Walden by Thoreau, and it is funny that he wrote, in the 1800’s, about how superficial life had became. I wonder what would he think (and others alike) if he would suddenly resurrect and see the world we are living, with all the stupid stuff that we don’t need and we use… and most of the times we don’t even know that we don’t need them, and this applies to almost anything material.

                I don’t have Whatsapp (not a personal one, because I have one for working). Can you imagine how many times I have been told: “how can you live without Whatsapp?”. Well, like people have lived for thousands of years. It is not a mistery. Actually I could expand a lot on this Whatsapp story and the real social distancing.

                If you like Rembrandt and Velázquez, I recommend you to take a look at the paintings at State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow (in the internet, since we can’t travel or do anything right now :D). I have never enjoyed a museum so much.

              • alexandre says:

                Thanks for the tip. Will do.

                Maybe if you take out the addictive elektro-bullshit, the world may be very similar to 1800s and before. Maybe Thoreau would just say “seriously?”
                I’m reading “1791 – Mozart’s Last Year” and it’s amazing how similar everything was. The financial problems, the debts, kissing rich people’s ass to get the job, business lunch, I mean the difference is that you took 5 days to go from A to B by carriage (and the music was good), but it was all the same, man. We’re suffering a scientific dictatorship, that’s all. They sold us (and we bought it) this illusion of development, future this, new that, evolution the other, but it’s just advertising to make us go where we shouldn’t want to go. And we’re going there. I don’t know, something to think about.

                I’ll see if I can get Thoreau’s book in Portuguese.

                Hello again Alexandre,

                For some reason I didn’t receive an email notifying your answer and I have just seen it by chance.

                The book you are reading sounds great and Mozart’s music is beautiful. Sometimes I just play his music in the background while I work or do something else. Nowadays we have very good music too, although it is buried by tons of manure.

                Thoreau would die instantaneously when he would have seen the massive power that the Governments have nowadays. Maybe until recently he would have seen that we were not different, but people’s mind have changed a lot in the last years. And the worst is yet to come. It is unbelievable how social networks have reshaped our mentality so much. A simple device like an smartphone will literally change a person’s fate in society.

                Reading this kissing rich people’s ass to get the job, business lunch has reminded me the time I was on Linkedin. What an awful website. Like everything, I guess that we could use if for something better, but it is just another created “necessity”. If you want to see people kiss their asses, just signup (if you are not there). When I was there was the time that I definitely decided to step back from the working market.

              • haros says:

                I answer you here because you wouldn’t get a notification if I do it in the other comment.

                If you have Linkedin then you can explore what I was talking about. Oh, I bet that there are thousands of posts saying #stayhome (in Spanish TV there is a logo with the words “Quédate en casa” in every channel), and then more thousands of recommendations. I felt that people there behaved somehow like being in a sect (of course, not everyone).

                In Linkedin I did something similar and I got zero messages too. The only messages I got there were automated. Well, one girl answered me when I asked her about a Master I was thinking to do (back then when I thought that they worth it a little bit). I guess that is something. Oh oh, I almost forgot about something of the market world, and Linkedin in particular, that I profoundly hated it, and is that companies don’t search for “workers” anymore, no; now companies look for “talent”. What a beautiful euphemism for “slave”.

                An anecdote: in Spanish the word for work is “trabajar” (very similar to Portuguese “trabalhar” -because you are Brazilian, right?-), and it comes from the latin word “tripaliare”, which means “torture”. It just can’t be a coincidence that we use this word. NO WAY.

                Talking about music, in the moment when the Spanish lockdown was anounced I was listening to a Japanese song by the band X Japan ( The song is sad, but associated to the quarantine is even worse!

          • manbearpig says:

            You know, now that I think about it… the TSM video was posted on March 24th, and I posted my comment on March 24th, with Europe being 6 hours ahead of the US even if the date stamped on my post was the 25th, because it was the 25th in Japan…

            meaning we may’ve posted our respective 12 Monkey perpectives at essentially the same time?

            funny how that is…

            • haros says:

              Before answering, just a little story: this morning two technicians came to the area where I live, they touched something of the telecoms system and now around 400 people (at least) are without internet. I don’t want to thing bad, but… At least I can use the smartphone as a router.

              I only watched this movie once but I remember that I loved it. I will watch it in the next days for sure. It is funny how these actors so “commited” with “social actions” like Brad Pitt (or DiCaprio), can act so good. But well, our politicians are also very good actors, so it shouldn’t surprise me.

              No, I didn’t read about this bird story but I will search for it because it is very interesting. From every comment I read in this website, I get homework to do! Books, links… Amazing.

              If I have understood you correctly, you missed a video by TSM where they explain exactly what you said to them about the ER logo! I think they didn’t upload to Youtube, but to Bitchute. It is a long video actually… a sinister one. Here is the link:

              • manbearpig says:

                the closest I found to substantiate the phenomenon I described about birds only describes this behavior in humans:


                looking for the same phenomenon in the animal kingdom (that I’m sure I heard about) I found this interesting page that might explain why some have the impression of being trapped in the movie “invasion of the body snatchers” when speaking to their entourage about coronavirus:


                Group cohesion: Social animals often benefit by behaving in a similar manner to others within their group. This means that when animals switch behaviors, e.g. from lying to grazing, a degree of synchrony is beneficial. Sometimes this synchrony can be provided by environmental cues, at other times it is provided by the group members themselves. In 1978, Clayton wrote “…where environmental stimuli only provide gross synchrony, socially facilitated behaviour will provide finer-scale synchrony, and, what is functionally important, greater cohesion of the social group’.

                Synchronous behavior is also threatened when animals in a mixed-sex herd have differing nutritional or physical necessities. This causes group instability which often splits the herd up into two separate groups; generally all male and all female, to recreate the mimetic behavior in a smaller, same-sex group that has more similar needs to the individual.[5] Synchronized, allelomimetic behavior is also affected by many factors, such as age, general group size, sex, space, resource availability, and domestication.[4] Domestication can also be seen as a threat to allelomimetic behavior.[4] The process of domestication removes many threats like predation, food shortages, and competition from many individuals for breeding by providing basically unlimited food and resources while providing protection from outside predators…

                …80% of the dogs studied ate more in groups on the majority of trials and the overall group consumption together was larger than the summation of food consumption between each dog eating individually.[7] When pups were considered food-satiated (would not eat more food even with a dish in front of them), they would resume eating when a hungry litter-mate was introduced into the room with them.[7] It was believed that since everything other than the addition of the hungry litter-mate was held constant, the increased appetite in the food-satiated pup was caused by the presence of the hungry pup and allelomimetic behavior…”


                Actually, I saw TSM’s movie about Midsommar and was just disappointed they didn’t speak about Extinction Rebellion’s logo, XR, as being the mirror image of the runes on Dani’s dress during the festival where she becomes May Queen. It just seemed so fitting and I’m sure I’m not the only one who noticed this.

                thanks for asking Haros.

              • haros says:

                Do you know why do I have to answer my comment instead of yours? I don’t see the reply link in your reply!

                Thanks for this link. I read somewhere that something similar happened with the discovery of fire, that it happened in many places at the “same” time. But, of course, if we can’t trust what is happening right now, imagine how much we can say for sure about a distant past. You can’t even trust what I am saying!

                Thank you for the Wikipedia article too. It is very clear that humans have behaviours of this kind. The best example is when it explains how an individual dog eats less when he is alone than when he belongs to a group. It happens exactly the same in humans.

                Hi Haros. Replying here in the middle of your exchange with MBP. The reply buttons go away after some replies.

                “It is unbelievable how social networks have reshaped our mentality so much. A simple device like an smartphone will literally change a person’s fate in society.”

                You got that right, buddy. (In a high cartoon voice).

                I am on Linedin, believe it or not. Since I never understood anything of this social media digital platforms, I just put my stuff there and forgot about it. Never got anything from it, or from any other “web” thing. Once a friend had a cool webpage done by another friend (since he was worse than me in this dept) and after a year I asked how many jobs he got from that, and he said “Zero”. Believing in globalization for 3 minutes I once, when I had a studio in 2001, sent 27 emails to advertising agencies all around the world offering our services. I got ONE email back saying basically “no, thanks”. To me it was always obvious this thing had other goals and people were falling for a big big trap, but whenever I said anything I got abuse back, so hell, ok. AND NOW….?? I ask them. Silence.

                Keep listening to Mozart. Very good for the health. The book is indeed very interesting, let’s see if I can finish it still in this century.

                Poor Thoreau.

                PS a couple days ago it was avocados of all the crazy things growing in the garden. That one was a duzzy
                I had some South Florida natives for clients here in Okla. Every time they came back from Florida they would bring the largest avocados. I truly believe they weighed 4-5 lbs. each. Big as your head. The seed big as a baseball.
                That got me wondering about Alex in his country town and globalism, food distribution ect. I was going to ask him what kind a avocados he had. He then posts about giving away avocados from his tree. … Guess you had to be here,…. there. everywhere.

                Ok Trimeara, lady fingers of the finger lakes. David Foster Wallace.
                The fiction story the “” Suffering Channel””
                This is what we are experiencing now. How is your perception freedom? Are you free to perceive the world now ,or are you living the ideas and perceptions of others? Are you locked in to maintaining others perceptions like your kind( ‘don’t forget your papers’) neighbor, who are contractually obligated to a false narrative?
                We (oui?) are not going to break free of this perception anymore than a fish is going to break free of the water. Fish break free of water all the time but shortly after they perceive water for what it is they die or go back into the water.
                You know the preceivers of water are not going to let the fish back in.
                There in is the beauty of ” The Suffering Channel”

                The virus is the finely sculptured feces , the protagonist is the fish struggling to perceive how it was made. The perception is being created to suspend belief.
                Wish James would have a look at ” The Suffering Channel” in propaganda watch.
                MBP can you imagine. A Prieto or David, even the Winged Victory coming out of Macrons ass.
                Perfectly formed down to the smallest detail.
                And as in the story by Wallace , a TV camera will be positioned at the point of release so that we will know OUR perceptions are REAL.

Then compare similarities .Filter, repeat. About the 3rd time a harmony will occur. Like plucking strings . A resonance will build and a clear tone will form from the atonal plucking. Practice can catch up with natural ability. You may find it a waste of time but at least affordable , voluntary and a complete disassociation from mental and physical imprisonment.

      The best analog for the current situation I think isn’t Spanish Flu, it’s polio. This old video probably by the awesome Dr Suzanne Humphries shows better than anything what is happening now.

      Once people realised that DDT is toxic and it got banned, polio essentially went away. But even now it still gets blamed on a virus.

    One point I wanna make:
    Remember how Trump said something like, it’s just the flu?

    And many people insist now: No, it is nothing like the flu!
    But remember: Swine-flu, bird flu

    and the graphic here:
    picture says Nicholson et al., study of 291 older patients
    so I would guess from that, that this is just one study and not the general distribution that is estimated
    (graphic: causes of flu-like diseases, Influenza 7%, RSV 4%, 14% Corona, 29% Rhino, 46% unknown)
    regardless if influenza is usually the most common or rhino is (funny though that we all know it as influenza)
    with the current Sars-Cov2 or whatever it is called, we are
    **talking about a flu-related virus.**

    It is not ebola, it is a “flu virus” that the world is going mad about with this new virus or virus category (remember, fast mutations and such).
    If there hadn’t been the Spanish Flu I would drum this into every ear:
    **We are talking about a flu virus!**

    Hey James,
    Here in Germany it is exactly the same as you described in your video – though I haven’t heard of people shouting out of their windows here like that except when they try to shut up the beginner musicians playing on their balconies.

    Two or three states are under lockdown, the other 13 or so are on the verge. Angie made it clear in her speech the other day that we should behave and keep our distance, wash our hands, stay indoors – or else.

    The conditioning is very apparent on the streets, at the supermarkets, at work – whoever still goes to work. (I never thought it would ever be possible that almost everyone could work from home. Looks like it will stay this way now.) It’s a strange vibe – a mixture of anxiety, fear and anger on one hand and worried fake smiles on the other.

    The msm ridicules and bashes any expert with a differing opinion, as they do with Dr Wodarg and Dr Bhakdi, with the sorts of German type of Snopes and other ‘Fact-Checkers’.

    The script seems to be almost the same for every country. A bit of insecurity, a bit of fear, a pinch of threat, a tad of intimidation…

    On an other note:
    The msm state-owned radio station I work at (as an engineer) rejected my request to them today to finally report on the sellout of all gold reserves at the banks here in Germany. Even though the banks closed gold sales several days ago, It has not been yet reported in the msm here! They said they were aware of it, but they had “more important topics” and “no reporters available”- in a media network with approximately 600 reporters…. doing home office.
    This media network is paid by the public.

    Just been on my regular walk around the neighbourhood, to get an impression what a “Level 4 – Eliminate” looks like on the street here in NZ.
    Traffic wise, things were very, very quiet. Yes, some cars on the road, some buses and trucks, but generally very quiet. It reminded me of the “Autoloze Zondag” (Carless Sunday) we had in The Netherlands in 1973 during the “oil crisis” (funny how that “crisis” was brought to us by the same players as this “virus crisis”, but that’s getting off topic). Still remember how we could play soccer on this normally busy street on the other side of the canal in front of our house. Walking around today brought those memories back.

    Sure enough, pharmacies were open, while our local natural health shop was closed with a large sign on the door saying “OPEN, Working Remotely, Will Deliver” plus contact details for the customer to call/email. It still infuriates me why a natural health provider should be shut down like this, just when they’re needed most.

    Definitely a positive thing that was noticeable today was the friendliness of people you would walk past, normally never a word would be said but now you would say Hello to each other. Also interaction with neighbours is more frequent, looking after each other.
    So all this craziness has some positives too.

    I reckon this Level4 lock-down isn’t going to last 4 weeks, it will go back down before that.

    I was born and bred in Brooklyn. Bensonhurst to be exact. For those who do not know… a genuine Italian neighborhood (at least it used to be when I grew up there.) I have lived in Manhattan for almost 30 years now. The Very First thing that stuck in my craw regarding covid 19 was this “social distancing” thing. For frigsake… could it be any more obvious??? Those dumbbells yelling out their windows were not born in the borough. They are lucky someone doesn’t shoot a zip gun at their faces…. for those that don’t know… a zip gun has nothing to do with bullets… and if one of them told me not to hug or kiss my grandma… they’d deserve more than a zip gun to the face!

    Münster/Germany (one Corona hotspot):
    We can go outside, but should keep a distance of 1,5 m
    All non-essential business is shut down. Social life has broken down to getting food.
    What is remarkable is the war on cash is picking up here.
    Germans love cash and did not give up on it so far, but now due to CORONA you are shamed when you use cash.
    Pay digitally even the tiniest amount is the order of the day advertised everywhere.
    I will of course not to it and lead by example still using cash.

    Now the Bundestag basically passed the foundation of Medical Martial Law.
    Thus I call CORONA = Reichstagsbrand 2.0 and therefore we now gotten the Ermächtigungsgesetz 2.0

    The scariest thing is that nobody seems to have an exit-strategyand everybody is accepting that tyranny.

    Positive is the neighbors are getting more together and talk more (even from a distance)
    Maybe we are seeing a start of the Gandhi way of resistance.

        you see that everything’s a cactus, but you take a chance on someone anyway, only to confirm that everything’s a cactus. So you’ve pricked yourself to know it. again.

        here’s one of the foxy lassie’s earliest performances (2 minutes into the video)

        Here’s what she was singing when I arrived in France:

        • alexandre says:

          Now, that’s just weird. Is she 12 or something? I mean in the Colosseum video? But hey, can’t argue with taste. Be my guest.

          I’m having trouble with sister cause she’s engaged in “debunking the argument that it’s all fiction”. She sent me a conversation she had by watsap with another nurse who says the doctors and nurses are in total panic. People coming in with respiratory problems, going right to ICU, even though they only put them on respirators when the person can’t oxygenate by him/herself above 95%, and so on. This guy started having symptoms himself and they gave him “tamiflu”? So sister’s point is, whatever the scam, there’s something making people have problems breathing en masse. I stopped talking about it and I just pass on the info here. Numbers are made up, the whole thing is a big scam, but still people are getting sick more than normal, according to these people, docs and nurses “in the front line”. It could be a thousand things, but … opinions?

          • alexandre says:

            Something else this guy (nurse) says is: “we only put people in respirators if necessary, also because the patient is sedated with something similar to propofol – which killed Michael Jackson. We don’t do it unless absolutely necessary. It’s too invasive and there aren’t many respirators”.

          • manbearpig says:

            Allow me to respond in 2 different boxes, one for Vanessa and the other for breathing problems en masse.

            As YOU seemed to have a taste for the “foxy lassie” I thought you might be interested in learning more. In the weird “sexualizing children” department she also did a movie called Noce Blanche:

            “…The plot centres around moody 17-year-old Mathilde (Paradis) who lived separated from her parents. Her philosophy teacher François (Cremer), happens to stumble across her path and is eager to help her learn more. He starts to come over to her house every day to go over her homework and teach her the art of studying. Eventually, Mathilde starts placing little hints that she finds the 47-year-old François attractive. He tries to resist her, but he finds himself falling for her as well. They soon blossom into a passionate love, but they must keep their affair a secret from his wife (Mikaël) and the school…”


            Jacques Martin is positively creepy in that Ecole des Fans show with little Mahtilde that was a veritable institution in France.

            • Chapati says:

              Thanks for this input manbearpig.

              You just made me remember something;

              Back in the days we analised this movie in a psychology class. It`s been a while but i believe to remember the conclusion being how a person, desplaying symptomes of (the allrounder diagnosis) „borderline“, has the ability to unconcioussly manipulate the other person…This beeing in its self in the very least a questionable and a negligent perception in my opinion. But the point being; i couldn`t help wondering at that time, why they picked such a young actress for this movie and not someone older making her look younger? … little i knew back then …

              • manbearpig says:

                “…a person, desplaying symptomes of (the allrounder diagnosis) „borderline“, has the ability to unconcioussly manipulate the other person…”

                yup, seems like another institutionalized “taught-in-schools”-style case of blame the victim,

                brainwashing business as usual…

                I mean everyone knows the child should know best, right!? I mean “How dare you?!”

            • alexandre says:

              Just a wee correction, madame. I don’t have a “taste for the foxy lassie”. That makes me seem a bit John Biden, you must agree. She just looked, in that first video, all dark and flashy, to be older. The second Colosseum video, as you saw, I found very weird. That’s it.

              The rest, ok, I responded the other post – don’t know where it is anymore – and you’re right. All accepted.

            • manbearpig says:

              Erratum. There were 5 seconds left before editing would be cut short and I tried to slip this sentence in:

              “Jacques Martin is positively creepy in that Ecole des Fans show with little Mahtilde that was a veritable institution in France.”

              but it’s filled with errors

              should be little “Vanessa” not Mathilde and it’s the Ecole des Fans show that was an institution, though so is Vanessa Paradis.

              and I meant cacti, of course in the phrase “Unlike cacti, daddy’s mustache etc…”

              just for the record. nothing better to do, right?

          • manbearpig says:

            so now that I screwed up my first answer with bad wording I’ll tackle the second question:

            “…Numbers are made up, the whole thing is a big scam, but still people are getting sick more than normal, according to these people, docs and nurses “in the front line”. It could be a thousand things, but … opinions?…”

            Off the cuff answer: Besides the numbers being highly manipulated and overblown I think as usual it’s a eugenical war against the most vulnerable: the old and the poor. If all of these high profile celebrities are claiming to come down with it, it’s to hide this fact. They’re coming down with it supposedly, but are they dying from it?

            As some have pointed out on these boards, I think it’s a multi-factor disease caused by pollution, possibly chemtrail poisoning, overwork, emotional stress and possibly some kind of pathogen released into the world etc. Stresses on the immune system.

            Middle and upper-middle class people with means and education can find ways of mitigating these stresses through healthy lifestyles : by getting out of the city to their country home, eating high quality foods, reading about and purchasing natural remedies, and they will not turn themselves in to be tested as they know they are not high risk and can take care of it themselves and prefer to forego the stigmatization of being diagnosed Corona Positive.

            As my sister had posted on her facebook page:

            “before I coughed to cover up a fart; now I fart to cover up my cough.”

            • manbearpig says:

              It’s a contrived eugenical overblown campaign that gives technocracy a pretext for taking over the world.

              It’s biowarfare with a low mortality rate that kills off the old and otherwise sick useless eaters while ushering in a new clinical, virtual world where people are more likely to meld with and obey hygienic machines than other people.

              New lifestyles and Gates-style “family planning” will take care of the birth rate, aging demographics will further reduce population numbers and in a few decades, Voilà!, a brave new Transhuman world.

              I guess.

          • haros says:

            Sorry to get in the middle of your conversation MBP and Alexandre.

            The fact is that we can only know the official data and, of course, it is extremely manipulated or, at least, biased. So there is no way we can’t know what is happening for sure. Even if we would like to research on that, we wouldn’t be able because we are in quarantine (how convenient!!)

            There is one thing that many people seem to forget: we always have had respiratory diseases and most of the times we haven’t gone to the doctor. At least I have never ever gone to the doctor because of a flu, cold or whatever. Like me, I am sure that most of you neither, because we just think: “what an awful flu/cold! well, it will go away alone”.

            What is happening now? People get sick and they think “holy sh*t, I am going to die or make someone to die because of my virus!”, so they go the doctor. I am sure that you can remember how many people get sick at the same time (I mean, according to your experience in school, work, house…). If this people usually didn’t go to the hospital and now they do, even it it just the 20%, obviously the system colapses.

            If you add to this equation one of the worst diseases in the world, stress, which lowers the immunological system, it gets even worst. Add the nocebo effect too and you get massive chaos.

            By the way, what are the symptoms we are talking about? Because in a panic attack we have cardiorespiratory medical signs like tachycardia, dyspnea, taquipnea and so on. If we sum this panic effects to a respiratory disease, then the person gets sicker.

            PS: what a funny sister you have 😀

            • mkey says:

              Symptoms of covid-19 are very telling: dry cough, fever and troubled breathing. Probably problems with breeding, as well. Not many afflictions cause these symptomps. Maybe only a few hundred.

              Symptoms of going apeshit: wearing a mask (incorrectly) and gloves wherever you go. Like when driving alone in the car. Cars are moving selfinsulation devices and have been for decades now since majority drive alone.

              Another telling sign: watching TV 8 hours per day (or 16 since introduction of the quarantine) without any understanding of how statisics work and inability to entertain any independent thoughts.

              Like every other bubble, this one is going to burst and it’s probably going to be replaced by another giant bubble. You can’t mess with stupid.

                Maybe only a few hundred… hahaha.

                Yesterday I was at my balcony chuckling after seeing so many people (“many” taking into account that most are at home) wearing masks and gloves to walk their dog. Someone posted here that it was unhealthy to wear masks because of breathing the same air all the time and I couldn’t agree more. Every single time that I had to wear a mask for sterile procedures I ended with a big headache that lasted all day. No exception.

                Oh God, TV is doing an incalculable damage to human brains. When I look at the official data of the number of cases (not because I believe them but because when they get lower will mean that the lockdown will be closer), I get nervous. Imagine watching 24/7 the fear porn: the story of celebrities “heroes” because the got the “disease”, that some random old man survived the apocalypsis, and so on. Not a single objective analysis of the data, by the way (for what I have been told)

                I just went for a 5 km walk, more or less. There were about ten people on the way. A mother and her kid were the only ones wearing the masks. This route is usually not that much riddled with people, but for this time of the year and considering it’s a Saturday, one would expect more up and about.

                The sad conclusion is that we have already been socially distancing for a while now. I’ve been idiot distancing for decades without even knowing there’s a term for it. And that it’s officially good for your health.

    Germany. It’s quiet out on the streets, most people appear to be afraid and stay home.

    Noticably more police activity. Sometimes they stop someone or stop traffic to ask drivers why they are driving around.

    This last weekend, a “hygiene demonstration” took place in Berlin. They were keeping the mandated physical distance and someone was handing out copies of the constitution. The police interfered.

    The health authority keeps making statements which don’t sound too well thought through. Not even a month ago, they made an official announcement that the rumor of further restrictions is “fake news”, a few days before everyone was ordered to stay home unless they have a good reason to go outside. Their talking head, which appears to be the only “expert” that’s shown in the news for all Corona questions, is the same guy who urgently recommended people to get vaccinated against H1N1 in 2009. They keep releasing a growing number of infected people and the government made it clear that they’ll not stop their measures as long as this number keeps growing as fast as it is, but at the same time, they don’t regularly release the total number of tests (they did in a single report on March 26 where it says that both the number of cases and the number of tests have tripled). While the news is creating the fear that many people will die because all hospitals are full, they’ve started a new project to begin counting those numbers around March 22 (supposed to contain half of all hospitals in the country) and nobody seemed to be worried about that or the accuracy of the numbers in general (so many people wanted to get tested but weren’t).

    Some doctors and other health professionals have come forward to contradict the official narrative or at least ask for different measures, which lead to news articles calling them conspiracy theorists (some articles even have a “fact checking” section where they partially agree with the evil doctor who is said to have his own theory, but it’s not obvious). As many people, especially those who consider themselves to be educated and well informed, seem to be most likely to copy and redistribute the official opinion that’s propagated in the news, some have also attacked those critical voices on social media (no arguments of course, just attacks).

    Many hospitals are still relatively empty at this point. In one small hospital I know, they only had a handful of Corona patients. One person was there for a week and recovered. A single patient died, it was an old man, almost 90 years old, a very nice person. They had decided not to ventilate this patient because he’s too old.

    Some people are even pointing out parallels to historical events, things like “nobody saw it coming”. Others are worried about whatever may happen after an economic crash caused by the global lockdown. I don’t know but it seems like those voices are in the minority. I hope everything is going back to normal by May or June without ending up in a violent police state. For many, it feels like it’s getting much more difficult to express criticism.

    • mkey says:

      It’s getting more difficult to get the official “tested” figure, there appears to be an orchestrated effort to obfuscate this number. I’m keeping track as best as I can and currently there is a constant relation between tje “tested” and “infected”, the ratio is about 10-12% which is in line with expected corona family rates.

      The “complications” number is gravitating around 5% of “infected” and the official death statistics is at well less than 1% of “infected”. Those tested positive but without symptoms are not counted in statistics, apparently.

      The last few days they have changed the approach a bit, now they say something like “today we have 57 newly infected, none of whom are in critical condition”. I’d say there’s quite a wide array of states between “absolutely peachy” and “critical” but these guys like to frame the argument for effect. Soon the recovered will be referred to as survivors.

    TAIWAN – the legal side of social distancing (as lock-down hasn’t happened – yet)

    Taiwan is a country of sheep – and fearful sheep at that. They are the kind of people who will line up outside a restaurant just because others are lining up, as they assume the line means the restaurnt must be good.
    Wearing masks has been a thing with the Taiwanese at least as far back as the SARS scare in 2002. Hoarding is also the kind of thing these people do. Mass loo paper hoarding has hit this country at least twice in the last few years. At the announcement of the virus, that hoarding turned over to masks, cleaning alcohol and little spray bottles. This is so much the case that the emergency measures the government granted itself include fining and potentially imprisoning people for hoarding, as well as allowing them to confiscate almost anything.

    However, even with all this nonsense going on, the Taiwanese people began calming down. After all, there were so few cases of local transmission and people were beginning to see beyond the panic. Many people stopped wearing masks – even on public transport – to no ill effect.

    Naturally, this wouldn’t do for the companies in the country who are now making record high numbers of masks – around 15 million per day:

    There are so many masks that the government casually donated 10 million to the EU:

    So, the government decided (possibly with the help of a few back-handers) to find ways to ensure that people kept using masks.

    They forced people to use masks in public transport:

    The created and then increasing fines to people who didn’t comply:

    They made mask-wearing a requirement when visiting certain places:

    Don’t foget that children make excellent props:

    Quarantine is also being enforced, but to a worrying extent. The government has decided to allow itself the ability to not only punish quarantine breakers, but anyone who they feel has “helped” them in breaking quarantine. This includes them helping quarantined people “recklessly travelling to other cities.”

    In case people continued to wonder why masks were necessary, the government limited the public transportation during busy hours to force people into more cramped conditions, increasing their fear and making them want masks:

    Of course, they need to keep a demand in people for masks and not over-saturate them, which could lead to a loss in business, so they created artificial scarcity – 9 masks every two weeks, which ensures people will be reusing masks:

    Masks can now be purchased online, so long as you also purchase a card reader for your computer and simply provide them with all of your details:

    Once people got used to the idea, masks were made available from vending machines. Now they can compete along with high-sugar snacks and drinks, which you have already been conditioned to buy:

    Ultimately this ends with Taiwan first proposing the idea of new medical world order:

    And don’t forget the technocracy:
