Typically on the 7th of every month I write an ongoing piece of fiction for the patrons, but as you can see not only is the month almost to an end but the year is as well. So I decided to turn this month’s installment into an end-of-year blog post.
Don’t get too excited. There’s far better writers than me out there, but I think I have something worthwhile to say.
Sure, this has been a learning curve and I’ll explain what I’ve learned, but it’s also been wearying, worrying and downright maddening. Like many of my friends, and yes I can say you are definitely my friends, I’ve lost all patience with this ongoing “health crisis.” It’s been two years. It shouldn’t have even begun.
Thanks to Max Blumenthal and Kit Klarenberg I learned that one of my former favorite YouTubers, Philosophy Tube, isn’t who she is cracked up to be. https://thegrayzone.com/2021/12/24/leaked-files-syria-psyops-astroturfing-breadtube-covid/. I had my suspicions when Thorne didn’t come right out and denounce these fascist Covid policies and narratives as I’d hoped she would, given her anti-capitalist, anarchist position of and in the world. But, it finally explains why BreadTube blocked book of ours. Hey JP, it turns out it wasn’t just us. It’s that BreadTube is basically funded by the same fascist warmongerers who like to regime change places like Syria.
When watching a couple of Blumenthal/Dore videos, the word “weary” just kept popping into my head as I watched him plead the case that the Covid fuckery wasn’t a partisan issue. The dark circles under his eyes, as is usually the case with fathers of first-borns, his voice carrying that exhausted tone of exasperation (also often seen with men who have recently become fathers) he states there is no left/right issue here.
He just seemed weary, like we all are.
2021 was my learning curve with Blumenthal. When I first heard of him years ago I took a wait and see approach. Despite the fact that his father seemed to be the architect of what is still an ongoing Libyan crisis, I wondered, as I watched him defer to leftist researcher Cory Morningstar and on-the-ground actual journalist Vanessa Beeley and give credit where credit is due, as he pleaded with all humans to put aside their party differences and come out to fight these radical, anti-life Covid measures, if perhaps the son wasn’t doing everything in his power to separate himself from his father’s past. Difficult to do, considering who Sidney Blumenthal is. Yikes.
But, maybe Blumenthal is just trying to be on the right side of history, right now at least.
Blumenthal is not my hero. No one is. Not a Diety. Not a human. This is also something I hope anyone who’s bothered to listen to our podcasting or read our work or watch our video essays (ugh, that’s a dirty word now. Thanks BreadTube), has learned in 2021.
I feel for those, though, that weren’t trying to be heroes in their small communities. They were simply trying to turn things around. We’ve seen them. The physicians, the teachers, the concerned parents, the community leaders, the teacher’s aids, the bus drivers, the shop owners and even the children standing in front of their municipal board leaders or their schools boards, pleading with them to stop these Covid measures. The only response they get is “Please pull your mask over your face and mouth.” They don’t seem to realize that their institutions which were once democratized have all gone by way of fascism: when corporations and government entities work together for their own benefit but not for the benefit of the people. The only thing the people get out of this is oppression and abuse. Despite their evidence, pages of research and scientific confirmation that masks are harmful and the Covid shots are not what they claim, it doesn’t matter.
Clearly we’ve learned, from all those videos and screen shots and recordings from phones in 2021, speaking out publicly at your local municipal meetings simply doesn’t work.
As a result, Anarchists are “in” now. The Constitution doesn’t hold any weight anymore. People have learned in 2021 that they don’t need a piece of paper to define what freedom is. If you’re alive and breathing, you’re free.
Welcome to the fold, real anarchists. Some of you may simply be reformed voters. It’s ok. I’m hoping 2021 taught people that anarchism isn’t a political party. It’s a way of life. A philosophy that tends toward egalitarianism and pro-people movements like https://winteroak.org.uk/ and https://thestirrer.net/ and many many others continue to demonstrate. We’ve seen a turning away from belief in any western democratic systems inching us into global governance and a turning toward human life and preservation and caring for one another, haven’t we? People have helped us out. We have in turn turned around and helped others. I don’t remember a time when I was so generous with my time, money and what little resources I do have.
2021 also brought about a new kind of health crisis. It’s called Transmission. Right now I’m getting over something called Transmission. Not everyone gets it. I guess it depends on your own body and your own individual health history. Transmission is when you, someone who hasn’t received the Covid shot, becomes very ill as a result of being around people who have recently taken the covid shot or a booster, like within the last two weeks. This happened to me in March 2021, when after being in a pool class filled with excited ladies who were chattering away about their recent inoculations, within 24 hours I felt as if toxins had been poured down my throat and then just a few hours after that, my lungs inverted and I developed pneumonia-like symptoms. Days later, near death (I’m not exaggerating) and after a few cups of arnica tea (arnica montana is a plant based homeopathic remedy that helps the body to heal from trauma), I turned a corner. The same thing happened to me recently the week before Christmas 2021 when I was in close proximity to different people in different walks of life. If I did have a head cold to begin with, Transmission makes a simple head cold which I would typically knock out of my system in a matter of a day or two turn into a bronchial attack, pneumonia, inverted lungs, etc. Transmission is real because I think we can all agree at this point that what we’ve learned in 2021 is that the Covid shot is a bio weapon of sorts and depending on who gets it and who is in proximity to the recently inoculated, you may be a victim of its weaponizing effects. That is not to say, everyone will be affected by this. But I was, so I can only speak of my personal experience around it.
Do I need to go into great detail about the thousands of deaths and adverse events as a result of the Covid shot we’ve seen in 2021? This is a daily conversation on social media yet eerily avoided in the real world. This is what 2021 taught me: no one wants to admit the truth. Not the barista at Starbucks, not the dry cleaner, not your next door neighbor, not the manicurist, not the port authority driver, not the teachers or the grocery store clerk, or even your clergy. The massive amounts of death as a result of the Covid shot is a dark pall of reality that we all walk under but no one rattles those cages of truth, except the voices on the social media platforms. It’s a bizarre, chilling disturbing reality.
Speaking of bizarre, disturbing, chilling realities we also heard from a voice we had never really heard from, not in any real way, prior to 2021. Matias Desmet brought to light the world of Mass Formation and Mass Psychosis, where we discovered that it was so much more than simply “turning off your TV” and suddenly you will see the light. If only things were that simple. I think even the Amish would agree with that. This hypnotic Stockholm Syndome-like trance that people are in seem to control the methodical types who, in less than one year, have already received at least three covid shots, or they are the kind who will tell you to your face that their sister in law, with no history of health problems suddenly died in her sleep and the body was incinerated before an autopsy could be done. These are the people who simply accept what is done and refuse to question any position whether it’s their doctor telling them they need to mainline their bodies into Covid booster shots like heroin addicts or their teacher telling them they need to suffocate their children in schools, or whether it’s the coroner telling them their family member’s body was cremated and there was no sense questioning why. This mass formation is deadly, disturbing and kind of like living in a zombie apocalypse. Luckily, the CDC prepared us for this current Mass Formation, er, Zombie Apocalypse we are in right now: https://www.cdc.gov/cpr/documents/zombie_gn_final.pdf
The word of the year: often used to describe this Covid experience, or the Age of Covid, or this Dystopian Hell, is “inverted.” In 2021 we saw inversions of our worlds. For instance, families and friends who never had cause to ghost or marginalize us were suddenly asking us to show our papers or at the very least a negative covid test at 2021 Thanksgiving and Christmas family get togethers. This caused extreme feelings of abandonment, shock, confusion and despair among my closest friends. They felt disrespected for their choice of body autonomy. This shed much needed light on areas that had long lay dormant in the hierarchy of the family and the various roles parents, siblings and all extensions play. Most of the people who were marginalized and essentially kicked out of events unless they complied, were not the corporate types whereas those who were making the demands, were. Perhaps Covid finally became the excuse to disassociate with those who had not followed the path of Corporate Liberal America.
If 2021 has taught me anything at all, especially with this abusive and vicious behavior within the family structure, is that this is absolutely class war. These family members were treating their relatives (my friends) as if they were bad employees not invited to the department’s holiday event or office party. They were transferring their corporate behavior often just reserved for their time with colleagues into their personal life. This felt like an inversion to my friend, who is retired and lives a simple life on a small budget. Why should she be treated like a bad employee because she takes fresh air walks daily or chooses not to mask up while at the hardware store? Or why should my friend who struggles to keep his dog walking business afloat while his clients display bipolar on again/off again behavior because their lives and “staff” they hire are dependent entirely on their own latest covid test result? This is inverted thinking, maddening and clownish reasons to keep a brother or a sister out of the family event. Your choices in life should not dictate whether you can share in turkey dinner or open presents under the tree. Clearly, Covid is just being used as the excuse to push people away within the family who’ve never really been respected or liked to begin with.
These examples of the family dysfunction allowed to happen with “Covid” as the excuse are microscopic examples of class war. Poorer communities that don’t have the luxury of steady income or corporate sponsorship or holdings in markets have suffered the most under the Covid measures and the poorer communities are the ones least aware of the truth around policy and what that policy means for their daily life.
The effects of Class War may start to effect those who’ve always been immune to it, probably because they are within the system that causes it. I recently learned, before 2021 slipped away from me, that an individual who is the Founder and CEO of Critical Path Capital, Author of “Truth About Green Business”, Founder and Chair at Natural Logic, Inc., Former Expert in Residence at Presidio Graduate School, Former Chief Sustainability Officer at City of Palo Alto, Studied Systems Ecology at Antioch University, has consulted with Salesforce and has all the pedigreed degrees from the Sustainable Landscape to keep him in a comfortable upper middle class life that the Bay Area will allow, recently had over $1000 simply removed from his bank account from PG&E because of a 2018 vote the CA Public Utilities Commission voted on and passed unanimously, without any input from the public itself. In 2021, we saw the first signs that the upper middle class, managerial types were suddenly becoming financialized for the profit of larger institutions and corporations or even utility companies that have no regulation to control how they get their money. To witness this individual twist himself into a pretzel trying to justify this amount of money being removed from his account was a sad state of denial that only keeps the grift going. Wait until 2022 hits and he has to pay a surplus for every gallon of water he uses over 55 gallons of water per day. 55 gallons of water sounds like a lot. But it’s actually not that much. And because they allowed that law to pass, they can keep reducing how much water is allowed, in perpetuity. We discovered this just before we decided to leave California. I’m sure every Californian is going to learn this hard financial lesson in just a few days. http://www.book-of-ours.com/sb-606-audio/
Oh, you thought I was done with class war. Allow me to disappoint you and double the fuck down on this. What else did we see in 2021? We saw the implementation of thinly veiled segregation and class divide through concert halls and museums, and now restaurants and cafes and gyms etc. requiring proof of a Covid shot somehow, electronically, through an app. If this is allowed to continue and it grows, I can almost guarantee there will be molotov cocktails, not served on the menus at these establishments, but straight through their god damned windows. I’ve even spoken to a few San Franciscans who feel really uncomfortable with this recent renewal in bifurcation. Boycott your favorite bands until they get the message. Cancel all your reservations and go somewhere else that doesn’t support segregation of your god damn free world. For fuck sake, or start breaking windows.
March 13, 2020 was when the National Emergency was declared for the United States of America and it cemented the unruly and outlandish caricature of human existence that has been 2021. Under Emergency Use Powers, the sky is the god damned limit and anyone who thinks they are in charge of anything can make anything up they want and financialize puny humans for profit. This is why it’s fascism. Where rules, unenforceable by law, are created and then threat under coercion is how those rules are followed by the masses. We’ve seen clearly in 2021 rule of law has become a circus ride, a kangaroo court, a joke, a ludicrous laughable exercise and no one is reigning it in. It’s like toddlers on a rampage and we’re all suffering at the whims of bored, grotesque, spoiled capitalists and their order following Good German managers making it happen. We were told that this thing was a marketing campaign announced by Peter Daszak 5 or 6 years ago, “We need to increase public understanding of the need for medical countermeasures such as a pan-coronavirus vaccine. A key driver is the media and the economics will follow the hype. We need to use that hype to our advantage to get to the real issues. Investors will respond if they see profit at the end of the process.” I’m sick of being told I need to get dozens of Covid shots because investors need to see that profit if I do so. You’re sick of it too. You’re also sick of being lied to all the time by the people you elect to protect you from these same investors. Someone needs to stop this, or better yet, let it run itself into the side of the mountain and explode.
Just steer clear of the shrapnel. Then come back. Pick up the workable pieces and build something else. Anything else. I guess we can call that workable shrapnel “2022.”
