Seven Sins in the Time of Covid
Part 1: Greed - Gluttony - Sloth - Lust
The Greed is everywhere. Imbued with a sense of national and historical essentialism, the greed is woven neatly and unapologetically through the fabric of American life. Dancing alongside the greed in every industry is her partner - corruption. No longer a Constitutional Republic since several decades ago henceforth, America is the only quasi-open oligarchy with openly corrupted representatives who openly represent corporations that openly sponsor their public service which is dutifully executed for personal, party and private greed…while shamelessly proclaiming itself a beacon of democracy.
This merging of corporations and the state into the Corporate-State has made conditions of greed and corruption ripe for a small minority of “sophisticated” elites in the managerial classes that control everything.
To the rich controlling elites a crisis is an opportunity, and the plandemic was the ultimate opportunity to sow chaos, confusion, manifest fear and brainwash and control millions of people for an indefinite period in order to usher in a future that suits their desires. It’s still happening 19 months later with no end in sight and the goal is less individual liberty for you, and more authoritarian power and centralized control for them.
They’ve declared war on humanity openly and definitively and yet most people reading this are sleep walking through the chaos in a state of paralyzed disbelief - millions of people trapped in embryos of denialism brought upon through a kind of Stockholm Syndrome while their overlords loot their treasury, mandate experimental injections and engineer evil medical apartheid states to sow distrust and anger and root out free thinkers and dissent. And yet this is nothing new. Historical periods of mass psychosis have both captured and subdued the populace so that they are simultaneously prisoners to the chaos and psychological victims of the hysteria. By temporarily hijacking individual liberties under the guise of medical safety, the elites have convinced millions that those liberties would one day be relinquished back to them if they simply followed their instructions. The people who still believe and defend this are part of a borg-like cult. But more on the mass formation and the Covidian borg in another piece.
The word plandemic is a necessary substitute for pandemic in order to understand the totality of all that has transpired in this time. Once you wrap your head around the probability, based on all evidence in existence, that the ‘vaccines’ came before the virus was collected, prepared and released, everything that you read and hear about masks, vaccines, pharma companies, public policy, mandates, digital passports, virus patents, power, control, censorship, lies, propaganda and brainwashing will ALL make perfect sense.
The controlling elites made many calculated decisions throughout the engineered chaos and hysteria - and ALL were to their own financial benefit. They determined that the virus was so smart, it simply knew to infect only small businesses owned by the unsophisticated class and to stay out of big box retailers like Walmart, Costco, Home Depot and all the Amazon warehouses. Doubtless these big box retailers’ army of lobbyists showed lawmakers evidence of The Science™ and all its peculiar and contradictory anomalies that justified their absolution from lockdown restrictions and delegated status as ‘essential services’, political contributions notwithstanding.
In order to justify the contradictory and selective lockdown policies, it became necessary to destroy the nation’s currency to save the assets of the Elites. They didn’t do this through stealth or subterfuge but in plain sight. They masked it like all robber barons mask their looting ways, by throwing crumbs to distract the peasants. This came via a poorly managed paycheck protection program for the unsophisticated business owners to retain employees and manage collapsing sales and revenues. The Corporate-State managers simultaneously injected billions in no-strings-attached bailout money to the sophisticated businesses.
Sophisticated = Afford Lobbyists and make large political contributions
Unsophisticated = Everyone else
The sophisticated airline industry - which had intentionally spent decades destroying the passenger flying experience, eliminating space, comfort, food, alcohol, award miles, and any semblance of quality customer service while Nickle-and-diming travelers wherever possible - was first with its nose in the taxpayer subsidized bailout trough. This continued on through many sophisticated industries too numerous to list, but the common theme is that in a nation so rooted in greed and corruption the first instinct of its openly corrupted representatives in any crisis (manufactured or real) is to quickly socialize capital losses in order to privatize capital gains. Taxpayers enrich private corporations, while receiving nothing in return.
A more recent example of this open graft is the Merck Covid therapeutic pill. With a DoD grant of $10 million, Merck’s newly acquired subsidiary Ridgeback pharmaceutical spent three years developing a pill for a different ailment that Merck quickly repurposed as a Covid therapuetic with trials showing 50% efficacy (only 765 subjects) they could sell back to the government at a 4275% mark-up ($16 per treatment to manufacture - $700 for the US government to buy).The company stands to make $4 Billion this year alone from the shakedown. In the stampede for greed Merck shut down their trials early to rush to market while getting their corporate media messengers to gush over the medication’s “strong safety profile” without revealing the many deleterious side effects caused by the drug, including the potential for cancer and birth defects. Not to worry though because Merck has already put 4000% mark-ups on their arsenal of chemotherapy drugs to treat the side effects from their Covid drug.
Even more obvious to those not getting their information from official Corporate-State sources, Merck went out of their way to publicly smear their once-patented Nobel winning drug Ivermectin which is extremely successful as a very safe and low-cost early treatment and prophylaxis against Covid.Corporate-State agencies and apparatchiks spent months rallying around another big pharmaceutical company, as it did with 24/7 vaccine proselytizing, to smear a cheap and effective proven therapeutic as ‘toxic horse paste’ so Merck could join their other Big Pharma friends in fleecing taxpayers and looting their treasury. Pfizer quickly one-upped Merck by creating their own “therapeutic” by brazenly stealing the protease inhibiting (viral replication) mechanism of Ivermectin to create their $600/pill version rightly called Pfizermectin by the astute good citizens among us. The Corporate media whores slobbered at the news of a miracle Pfizer pill that could “end the pandemic” while continuing to smear anyone who mentioned the word Ivermectin or pointed to the 66 peer-reviewed studies that show it saves lives as a prophylaxis and early treatment for sixteen cents per dose.
While many Americans believe the corporate-state engineered largesse of greed and corruption is reserved for Big Pharma vaccines and therapeutics, it’s actually private equity and their Fed enablers that have looted much, much more.
After a -30% collapse in equities in the first weeks of the plandemic, the benevolent Federal Reserve intervened in capital markets in late March of 2020 with ‘Quantitative Easing Infinity’ and spent the next year buying bonds, junk bonds, MBS, and pumping liquidity into equity markets to devalue the dollar through inflation (poor tax) while increasing the assets of the billionaire class. They outsourced their dirty work to Larry Fink and Blackrock, who now sit on over $10 trillion in AUM, which they are using to buy up whole neighborhoods so they can rent back now-unaffordable real estate to their primary benefactors - the American taxpayer.
All this open greed, corruption and graft went largely unnoticed. The people were too distracted by a fear mongering Corporate-State media and too subdued by enormous $1400 ‘stimmy’ checks to speculate with meme stocks to notice the Oligarch class looting their treasury, again.For the first time since before the great depression, the top 1% owned more wealth than the middle 60%. With centrally controlled markets manipulated by low interests rates and endless money printing, this all had to be completely intentional.
In the initial days of the Plandemic when enough was yet unknown to amplify hysteria, politicians and the managerial class who follow the “experts” who make up The Science™ advised millions of people to lock down. For the working and middle class and small business owners whose jobs required their physical presence, this was devastating policy. For mentally fragile and isolated individuals, and those with ongoing health conditions in need of tests and treatments, this was deadly policy. According to a published cost-benefit analysis of lockdown secondary and tertiary effects, the author concludes, “It is possible that lockdown will go down as one of the greatest peacetime policy failures in modern history.”But, for the expert class of work-from-home pajama-wearing Netflix bingers this was an opportunity to sleep late, log on to the occasional zoom call (CCP spyware) and endlessly signal their virtues online from the warmth and comfort of their criminally overpriced urban apartments.
Instead of using this unifying crisis to promote actual health via a World War Two era War Bonds-like drive to encourage exercise, nutrition and weight loss - a collective goal that actually would save lives, the heath experts insisted good citizens do their part by laying at home fearful and depressed scarfing down food delivered to their door. This couldn’t be executed through trust alone though. Good citizens need coercive state measures to enforce good citizen behavior so basketball rims were boarded shut, skate parks buried with sand and beach-goers arrested for daring to get Vitamin D, an essential hormone so effective in fighting covid, one paper estimates that with enough daily Vitamin D in every good citizen the Covid mortality rate could be dropped to near zero.I’ll repeat that in case you missed it…a Covid MORTALITY RATE TO NEAR ZERO with sufficient levels of Vitamin D3. Nineteen months later and no Government “health” agency or corrupt bureaucrat has ever uttered the words ‘Vitamin D3’.
Arresting people at the beach who dared to get Vitamin D was called following The Science™. The national BMI rose 4% during the first year of the plandemic, putting millions more people at risk of dying, if not from the virus than with the virus and diabetes, heart disease and the host of other ailments that come with weight gain. Even Children of all age groups got fatter and unhealthier (+3% BMI increase), ensuring maximal profits for the pharmaceutical and for-profit death-management industries for generations to come.
The Science™ said there was no need to take responsibility for your own health when you can follow the American healthcare way and outsource that duty to pharmaceutical companies with a rushed experimental therapy to inject into your body. And for the silly skeptics out there who didn’t trust the “vaccines”, the government in all its wisdom and foresight would eventually make it a no-brainer by throwing in a glazed donut or cheeseburger to corral them through the bovidae gates.
Amazingly, for the most stubborn good citizens, not even that was sufficient, so the corporate-state’s newly appointed regime lost its patience and gave people a final choice: take the experimental therapy with waning antibodies, innumerable dangers and unknown long term health risks or lose your job, livelihood and ability to feed, clothe and house your family even if you already have natural antibodies which are much more protective than anything the “vaccines” could provide…for a virus with a 99%+ survival rate for most age groups. The political lesson here? Your constitutional rights are not guaranteed but are subject to the totalitarian whims of whatever regime is in power under whatever reality/crisis/emergency they manufacture for the nation. The health lesson here? Don’t be a glutton for punishment by thinking for yourself and asking questions - shut up and take the free donut with the free experimental injection, or lose your job and employer subsidized health insurance.
The lockdowns were initially sold under the lie of ‘two weeks to flatten the curve’. By the time lockdowns arrived, the fear contagion was sufficiently unleashed for the majority of the country to buy the ‘flatten the curve’ plan - ultimately a socialist/collectivist policy to help our needy friends in the for-profit death-management sector. The government feared hospitals being over-run with diabetics and seniors and that they would run out of ICU beds before these hospitals could successfully intubate and kill the patients fast enough to collect their Government Covid-death bonus checks.
The corporate-state media rallied around regime health “experts” to keep the fear thermometer hotand the mass brainwashing operation on overdrive. Social media companies were also eager to do their part by censoring and blacklisting anyone who asked inconvenient questions about the vaccines, unconstitutional mandates, PCR test credibility, infection fatality rates, Ivermectin, school closures, masking children or the importance of natural immunity.
We should all be so grateful to our elite class of corporate-state overlords for keeping conspiracies and misinformation from spreading too easily and from actively protecting us from wrong ideas. Isn’t it so much easier to outsource your thinking to the experts in incorruptible government agencies and big Pharmaceutical companies, to delegate the responsibility of seeking the truth to Oligarch-sponsored media fact-checking boards and ‘trust and safety councils’ whom you know have your best interests in mind? How exhausting it must be to actively pursue the truth.
This is what mass psychological warfare (and sloth) looks like in polling data:
While decades of systematic destruction of public education has rendered the majority of the population completely incapable of critical thinking and susceptible to mass-brainwashing and mass formation, congress and state legislatures took it upon themselves to ‘protect’ workers…by paying them more money to quit their jobs to sit home and do nothing.
Under the guise of ‘health and safety’ the Corporate-State created millions of wards paid to stay home and eat pizza while watching others play video games, choreograph cringe dances for TikTok and become Only-Fans of young women who impulsively turned to amateur pornography in droves. This created a new wave of Corporate-State dependents while retarding the emotional maturation of young men, corrupting the future mate-appeal of young women and any hope of a sustained national economic recovery.More than a year after the engineered crisis there were simultaneously eleven million job openings AND twenty-one million people ‘unemployed’, a seemingly incomprehensible anomaly only clueless bureaucrats could engineer. According to the Center for Influencer Economics, roughly half of the twenty-one million unemployed were Only-Fan coomers using their ‘stimmy checks’ to watch thots and “influencers” undress in the bathtub.
