The Empowerment of Epistles in a Pantomime Plague...

Posted by Miri on January 25, 2021 at 8:30 AM Comments comments (0)

As a fervent believer in the might of the pen over the sword (and even the social distancing zapper... yes, it's a thing...), I've always enjoyed putting together a good strongly-worded letter. I've written several dozen since the fantasy 'flu began, to employers, hospitals, schools, newspapers and businesses, and to modestly good effect. Quite often, the recipients of the letters have backed down and responded in the desired way. You can see all my letters here: https://miriaf.webs.com/site-index


When I first started writing them, I offered my services to assist others who might variously be experiencing mask discrimination, pressures to get tests or vaccines, or who otherwise wanted to protest the pathological perpetuation of pantomime plague propaganda...


This has been a very instructive and enlightening exercise, and I thank everyone who has entrusted me with sometimes very personal issues to try and help them. I especially thank you if you've been kind enough to compensate me for my efforts, since letter-writing has taken up increasingly large amounts of time, inevitably at the expense of paid work.


However, I've now come to the conclusion that my writing letters for other people isn't helping them as much as empowering them to write them themselves would. I've covered many of the major issues in my existing templates, referenced the relevant laws and further resources, and for many situations, there is all the information there people need to start putting something together themselves.


Nevertheless, I get large numbers of requests every day for help to write letters that regard issues I've already addressed. I completely understand why this is happening, and that people are thinking - "but I can't write a good letter! Yours will be much better!" - and I'm very flattered they think so. But the only reason I can put together a half-decent missive is because of years of practice. The letter-writing fairy did not sprinkle her magical dust on me (alas!). I just practiced, and practiced, and practiced. That is the only way anyone gets good at anything. So, if I keep doing these letters for others, I'm taking away the opportunity from them to develop that skill themselves.


I will continue to write letters from my own initiative, addressing the increasingly insidious situation we find ourselves in and holding egregious authorities to account, and will always publish them on my website for anyone who wants to to use and adapt. But I can no longer offer personalised, bespoke letter-writing services - because ultimately, I don't think this is optimally serving others.


There's also the issue of my time and finances, neither of which are in great shape... I get huge numbers of requests for help and advice every day, and I am just one person with no "staff". Even if I spent every waking hour replying to people, I could not keep on top of it - and much of the work I am asked to do is unpaid. Like many of us, I'm not in a strong financial position and can't keep giving so much of my time away for free. I don't have a "day job" (lost it last year as a result of the corona circus), so rely entirely on writing to generate an income.


Many of you have very kindly and generously supported my efforts via donation and for this I am extremely grateful. But a large volume of people who want my help do not, and so I am going to have to be a bit more practical and prioritise my bottom line, which is that I need to make enough money to keep a roof over my head and non-GMO food on the table (and feed the world's hungriest cat... Pro-tip: check any potential cat's birthday and think very carefully if it is a Taurus! ��).


As I say, I will continue generating letter templates and publishing them on my website for others to use; writing articles and commentaries, and producing leaflets (new one coming soon!), but as of this week, will no longer be writing bespoke letters for other people. Thanks for your understanding on this; it's not a decision I've come to lightly.


I'm also in the process of having a new website developed, where letters and other content will be easier to access and download (I know there's a problem with the current site where the text turns completely black when copied and pasted! If you highlight the text and change the background to white and text to black, it reappears).


Thanks for reading, and thank you once again for all your fantastic support since the corona circus came to town. Without it, I would have truly despaired of humanity to the extent I might EVEN have been tempted to start watching the BBC...


...Okay, that's a bit of creative licence. It's never got THAT bad... ��

Testing Times

Posted by Miri on January 23, 2021 at 5:20 AM Comments comments (0)



Ever since the pantomime plague began, your local friendly crazy quackaloons have been telling you the diagnostic test isn't fit for purpose and creates false positives, due to results being amplified too many times.


Now the WHO states the diagnostic test isn't fit for purpose and creates false positives, due to results being amplified too many times.


For the hard of thinking and BBC watchers (but I repeat myself ;) ), I will explain again what the PCR test does: it detects genetic sequences of viruses, but NOT viruses themselves. The more amplification cycles a test result goes through, the more genetic sequences it detects. As we all have all sorts of genetic debris floating about inside of us, then - to quote the inventor of the PCR test - "anyone can test positive for anything with the PCR. It doesn't tell you you're sick."


(Read this salutary tale from 2007 for what happens when PCR tests are inappropriately used to diagnose infectious illness: https://www.nytimes.com/2007/01/22/health/22whoop.html)


So, if you happen to be in the midst of orchestrating a pretend plague and want to create a lot of "positive cases" to terrify the masses, you just amplify the PCR test results a lot of times. Have you noticed how the propaganda press is always going on about rises in CASES? Not deaths. Not hospitalisations. Not even the sniffles. Just "cases". A "case" is a positive PCR result, and hence, in reality, meaningless. It doesn't tell us anything about whether more people are ill or not.


Nevertheless, most people take headlines at face value and don't and can't think (critical thinking having been intentionally axed from the national curriculum years ago), so they believe an explosion in "cases" a pandemic makes. Oh, but you know someone who was really sick "with Covid"? I'm heartless for denying its severity? Look: I don't deny you knew someone very sick. They may even have died. But elderly and unwell people, and sometimes younger people, do die. It's tragic, but it's life. In normal circumstances, 1,600 people die every day in the UK alone. That number hasn't significantly increased. Just because they "tested positive" on an unfit-for-purpose test shortly before their death does not prove they died "from Covid", and it certainly doesn't prove there's a pandemic. 


The PCR test has been used to create the illusion of a pandemic to manufacture your consent for a variety of draconian and authoritarian measures that you never would have accepted unless you had been scaremongered into compliance. The best way to control people is to scare them - all repressive regimes know that. 


But - now we have the miraculous saviour vaccine, so the propaganda angle has got to change.


Hence - the WHO is now telling labs across the world to reduce the number of  PCR cycles. This means a dramatic decrease in positive test results, which will be used as "evidence" the vaccine is working. 


 

Meanwhile, as bad reactions to the experimental gene therapies being marketed as vaccines mount up, this will be used as evidence for why we need to keep the restrictions, as bad vaccine reactions will be blamed on "the virus mutating" and as evidence we don't have "herd immunity". We will be told new and different vaccines are needed every six months or so to fight the never-ending "new strains".


So, both restrictions and vaccines will go on and on and on. This will last until at least 2025, by which point, you will have been fully and irreversibly re-engineered, to be terrified of other people, to eschew all physical contact, to smother your airways and hide your face, and to view your fellow human beings with deep suspicion and hostility, snitching to the authorities if they break "the rules", and viewing them as nothing but filthy disease vectors and potential mass murderers. That's if you survive the next five years, of course, which, if you keep getting vaccinated, is not necessarily very likely. - especially if you're older and/or have existing health problems. 


That's the future in store for you if you keep believing the execrable and mendacious lies being fed to you by your government, and their state propaganda organs "the press".


 Yes, I know I'm just a crazy conspiracy theorist, and why should anyone listen to me? But you know what the biggest conspiracy of all is? Believing the Government has your best interests at heart. 

The Protest of Reason

Posted by Miri on December 12, 2020 at 6:45 AM Comments comments (0)

I was just going to write a short 'good luck' message to everyone going to the protests today, when it occurred to me to think what absolutely superhuman miracles of medicine all protest-goers clearly are. Mingling (that's illegal, you know) with hundreds, if not thousands, of others, without masks, shaking hands and hugging, singing, laughing, and not a bottle of hand sataniser (sic - and isn't it just) in sight.


Do bear in mind, protest-goers are not exclusively made up of super-healthy twentysomethings. On the contrary. Protest-goers include:


*The over 50s, 60s, and 70s;

*Those with underlying health conditions;

*The overweight;

*Smokers;

*The asthmatic, diabetic, allergic.


In short, they represent a full cross-section of society, including plenty of people deemed by the government at "high risk" from the current cold. I mean, deadly plague.


And yet.... Not one of these people have died. Not one has been hospitalised. I've heard unconfirmed reports of a few sore heads (whether this is virus or vodka related is unknown), but that's about it.


If there really was a super-infectious deadly contagion sweeping the nation, then every time there was a protest, the papers would be festooned with reports of lethally foolish protest-goers now in hospital, if not the morgue, and all because of their own grotesque irresponsibility and ingratitude (we are only destroying your life and DNRing your gran BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU).


Does this ever happen? No, it doesn't. Hundreds or thousands of people congregate in close proximity every single weekend, eschewing all "the rules", and nobody gets ill. Nobody dies. Why do you think this is?


Is it because a) protestors are all superhuman modern miracles of turbocharged immunity, or b) something else?


I think I can happily speak for all my fellow kerazy conspiraquacks, when I say, yes, we would all happily do a shift at the local Covid ward, without PPE. We would be more than willing to sacrifice our right to NHS treatment if we develop "Covid-like symptoms". We most certainly are very happy indeed to be banned from receiving the vaccine.


So what is the reason for this? Are we all just insane with a death wish which, maddeningly frustratingly, is never realised, no matter how many PPE-less people we perambulate alongside or unquarantined items we allow into our homes, or could it be... possibly... something else..?

School Bullying Has Become Medical Assault

Posted by Miri on December 10, 2020 at 7:15 PM Comments comments (0)

I was talking to a friend last night about the HPV vaccine. Her daughter didn't have it - one of only a tiny smattering of pupils in her year who didn't - and at first, she wasn't at all happy about this. It wasn't just that she didn't want to be the odd one out amongst her friends, but rather, that her form tutor was repeatedly aggressively asking her, "so you want cancer, do you? You know you're going to get cancer if you don't get this vaccine, don't you?"


Cue my friend having to reassure her terrified 12-year-old daughter that, no, declining a neurotoxic injection full of detergents and sterilants was NOT going to doom her to a grisly cancer death (there remains no evidence whatsoever that the HPV vaccination has or ever will prevent a single case of cancer, though cervical cancers in the age-group that have had the vaccine have increased).


On vaccination day, my friend's daughter came home from school and declared, "Mum, you were right, I'm SO glad I didn't have that vaccine."


She then regaled her mother with the tale of how, prior to summoning the pupils into the school hall for vaccination, gym mats were rolled out across the floor. This was because the school was fully anticipating pupils to pass out.


Upon the vaccination being administered, several instantly fainted, and one began convulsing and had to be taken away in an ambulance. The school wasn't in the least perturbed, clearly used to this happening every year.


Amongst my social circle alone, I've heard reports of: girls having to lock themselves in the school toilets as staff bang on the door and shout at them trying to force them to have the vaccine; girls being cornered in rooms by multiple staff members and physically forced to have it; girls being taunted by peers and staff alike that if they don't get the vaccine, they will die of cancer. These are 12-year-olds.


In all of the above cases, the parents had clearly and unambiguously stated they did NOT consent to their daughters having the vaccine.


However, schools have full legal coverage to give the vaccine anyway, and many do so under extreme duress, because of a nasty little law called "Gillick competency", which declares that, if a medical professional deems a child "competent to understand the issues", they can consent to their own medical treatment without parental consent or even knowledge. What this means in practice is adult authority figures coercing children into receiving invasive medical procedures and then bullying them into not telling their parents. This is happening all the time, in schools up and down the country.


We need a robust challenge to the Gillick ruling to ensure children are no longer ruthlessly exploited and coerced into doing things they don't understand, and we need the law to put medical decisions for children back where they belong - with parents. 


The only organisation I am aware of that is looking to challenge Gillick competency is the Freedom Alliance political party, which I've recently joined. Please have a read of their page on medical consent, including vaccine mandates and Gillick competency, and if you like what you read, do consider joining as a member.


https://freedomalliance.co.uk/medical-freedom/


I know many of us have our reservations about the political system, but I think at this point we need to try everything we can to stop the juggernaut that's coming. If Gillick can be used to force HPV vaccines on children, it can and will be used to force Covid ones, too.


While we have a political system and have the means to organise and challenge, let's use it.

"Piers Morgan denies he's Home Alone pigeon lady"

Posted by Miri on December 9, 2020 at 5:20 AM Comments comments (0)

I find the mainstream media, linked above, to be an endless source of fascination, because it DOES reveal the truth, if you know how to read it properly (this was explored to brilliant effect by investigative journalist, David McGowan, who exposed some extraordinary "conspiracy theories" simply by citing mainstream sources and knowing how to interpret them - his work is a must-read if you haven't discovered it yet).


I'm not saying the truth is that Piers Morgan is pigeon lady (an insult to pigeon ladies everywhere), but if you read the whole article, it's casually, blink-and-you'll-miss-it thrown in at the end that: "Piers then took the opportunity to remind viewers he’s starred in a total of 10 films, including Flight (2012) and Entourage (2015)."


Not incidentally, Piers also starred in deadly-plague movie, World War Z, as a shrieking talking head predicting mass death and devastation.


The point I'm making, and that the mainstream media is clearly telling you, is that Piers is a (quite accomplished) actor. He's playing a part. Many have marvelled at how he can be so extraordinarily thick, heartless, pompous, etc., so completely and utterly impervious to the real facts about this fake pandemic, and it's quite easily answered - it's because he's acting. He's reading from a script. He's playing a character called Piers Morgan, just like he did in World War Z and all the other films he's starred in.


As it happens, Piers Morgan used to be a Facebook friend of mine (I know, I know, it was a long time ago, I was young and naive etc.) and I had a brief correspondence with him. He isn't stupid. He is, however, a very good actor.


When you go to watch World War Z at the cinema, you know it isn't real, and that Piers is playing a part, because you're overtly told before you buy the ticket.


When you watch GMB on television, you're tricked into thinking it's real, but in reality, it's just another glossy studio production staged by actors, and you're being covertly told that all the time (check just how many talking heads and politicians have profiles on IMDB).


It is very, very pertinent indeed that the "first man to get the vaccine" was William Shakespeare. All the world really is a stage, and they're telling you so all the time.


A Plague of Propaganda

Posted by Miri on December 8, 2020 at 6:25 AM Comments comments (0)

This is a pitch-perfect example of how you create a propaganda plague.


https://www.stokesentinel.co.uk/news/stoke-on-trent-news/retired-primary-school-teacher-dies-4775650


Headline states: "Retired primary school teacher dies after testing positive for coronavirus at Royal Stoke."


Article clarifies: "North Staffordshire senior coroner Andrew Barkley concluded that Miss Johnson's death was due to the complications of a fall. He said: "After having a nightmare, she jumped out of bed and sustained a fall that resulted in a fractured pelvis.


"When she was admitted to hospital, she was diagnosed with community acquired pneumonia and initially showed a negative Covid test, but that changed to positive on November 12.


"She was treated with antibiotics and discharged on November 19 with a care package. She became acutely unwell and informed her carers and she suddenly became unresponsive, despite CPR."


"A cause of death was provided as community acquired pneumonia and Covid-19, with a fractured pubic rami, atrial fibrillation, left ventricular dysfunction and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) as contributory factors."

-------


And there you have it; that's how they do it. A very elderly woman with multiple health problems, who the coroner ruled died of a fall - as elderly women in fragile health are wont to do - is nevertheless used as part of the pantomime plague to petrify you, and it will work, because few people read past the headlines and even fewer are able to critically think about what they have read.


Note also the inclusion of her former career, primary school teacher. Is this relevant? Is it more of a tragedy when a retired primary school teacher dies, than, say, a retired bus driver or retired IT technician? Obviously, it isn't, but this is just more cynical media manipulation, knowing the public image of a primary school teacher is of someone lovely, cuddly, caring - subtext being, if this evil, ruthless disease can take such a shining beacon of compassion and care, it could take you, too! No reason to include a job she hasn't done for 25 years otherwise.


Now, most people suppress a smirk when I say this, but I did Media Studies A-level (it was hard, ok!), and it does teach you - or at least, it did back in 1874 when I did it - how to critically read the media, and the cacophonous array of propaganda and subliminal programming techniques the media uses to get you to absorb and accept messages, without you realising you've done so.


Calling the media "the news" is probably the biggest propaganda weapon of all. It's not news, it's a deftly conceived collection of psychological manipulation and behaviour modification techniques, designed to elicit the thoughts and behaviours from you the overlords deem desirable.


Make no mistake, if this 85-year-old woman had died shortly after receiving the coronavirus vaccine (as many will), her death would not even have made page 37 of this newspaper, never mind being the headline story for the entire local area. Because as I say, the media does not report "news", it doesn't objectively report events of local and national interest - rather, it is a highly strategic weapon of psychological warfare - and the enemy it is looking to defeat with all these expert, military-grade tactics and techniques - is you.

The Veracity of Vaccination, Part II

Posted by Miri on December 6, 2020 at 3:55 AM Comments comments (0)

I wrote a post a couple of days ago, about us crazy, science-denyin', lizard-lovin', conspiraquackster anti-vaxxers, which gained an unexpectedly large response.


I asked how many times people who are effectively unvaccinated (e.g. have received no vaccines in the last ten years, since most or all vaccines are effective for no more than ten years) have died in that period, or otherwise contracted serious health problems as a result of their unvaccinated status. The responses were quite illuminating and instructive, and you can see them here: https://www.facebook.com/miri.anne8/posts/10157453423336034


So, in the interests of fairness and balance (since this is my Facebook page and not the BBC), I now throw the floor open to the fully vaccinated to tell us all about the wonderful, vibrant health they are enjoying courtesy of their comprehensive and regular vaccinations, and how they definitely DON'T have auto-immune diseases, serious allergies, asthma, eczema, diabetes, depression, OCD, dyslexia, Coeliac disease, POTS, POCS, Crohn's, UCD, IBD, IBS, infertility, cancer, Alzheimer's, or any of the other modern maladies that have "inexplicably" exploded right in line with the ever-increasing vaccination schedule.


And on the subject of said vaccination schedule, if you want to qualify as "fully vaccinated" by today's standards, that means:


*Five doses of the DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine

*Five doses of the IPV (inactivated polio virus) vaccine

*Three doses of the Hib (haemophilus influenzae type b) vaccine

*Three doses of the Hep B (hepatitis B) vaccine

*Three doses of the Men B (meningitis B) vaccine

*Two doses of the Rotavirus vaccine

*Two doses of the PCV (pneumococcal) vaccine

*Two doses of the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine

*Two doses of the HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccine

*One dose of MenACWY (meningitis) vaccine

*Annual flu vaccine


Source: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/899423/PHE_Complete_Immunisation_Schedule_Jun2020_05.pdf


That is what is currently being pumped into the nation's children by the age of fourteen, with the vast majority of it being administered by the age of three. So, adult pro-vaxxers, if you're not up to date on all the above, including regular boosters at least every ten years, not only are you not "fully vaccinated", you might even be "unvaccinated", since the overwhelming majority of adults are not up to date on their booster shots (without which, any "immunity" effect from vaccines wears off).


Anyway, though, for those of you who are genuinely fully vaccinated, or at least regularly vaccinated, please do regale us all below with tales of the wonderful health and vitality you are enjoying as a result. I am genuinely curious to know, because my experience is that pretty much invariably and without exception, those who receive regular vaccinations are in much poorer health than those who eschew them, but hey, I'm sure my tin-foil hat's just on a bit too tight (although this can't actually starve the brain of oxygen, unlike your mask...).

Separating the "I" from Expertitis

Posted by Miri on December 5, 2020 at 4:00 AM Comments comments (0)

I just saw someone on Twitter smugly ask, "so anti-vaxxers, if a vaccine was released tomorrow that stopped cancer, are you telling me you wouldn't take it?". Bless, nobody said they were the sharpest tools (repeated injections with neurotoxins will do that to ya, I guess), but they really don't get what the "anti" part of "anti-vaccine" means, do they?


Anyway, there is a vaccine already that purports to stop cancer. It's called Gardasil, and has one of the most atrocious safety profiles of any vaccine to date, which is really saying something. Needless to say, there is no evidence it has ever prevented a single case of cancer.


Pro-vaxxers, please pay attention. No disease, most certainly including cancer, was ever caused by a deficit of neurotoxins, detergents, disinfectants, carcinogens, industrial chemicals, or monkey kidney cells (oh yes, these are all common vaccine ingredients, go look it up). Disease at its root has three primary causes: toxicity from the environment; nutritional deficiencies; inflammation.


Vaccines are known to cause two out of three of these. Because of the method of delivery - injection, not ingestion - the fact that their toxic components come in "tiny amounts" does not render them harmless - far from it. Because vaccines are delivered straight to the bloodstream, bypassing all the body's natural defence and detoxification pathways, this means vaccinations represent an acute exposure to toxicity, and can and do cause all manner of serious illnesses, both chronic and acute. Most modern maladies, especially the sudden explosion of chronic illness in children (54% of American children now have at least one chronic illness) are either caused or exacerbated by vaccines.


Second, inflammation: it is a known fact - any vaccine clinic will confirm this - that vaccines cause inflammation. That is why vaccine clinics can predict their patients are at a heightened risk for depression soon after the vaccine, because the root cause of depression in many cases is not "a chemical imbalance in the brain" (this is nothing but a marketing slogan to flog antidepressants; it was never backed up by credible evidence), but bodily inflammation. Inflammation is also now known to be the driving cause of many other chronic conditions, such as heart disease (NOT caused by high cholesterol - another marketing ploy to sell statins and low-fat diet books. Actually, high cholesterol is protective and linked with longevity, whilst low cholesterol is linked with premature death, including from suicide).


Another pro-vaxxer marvelled at the fact that us crazy whackaloon types "don't trust your doctor, don't trust the NHS, don't trust the WHO, so who do you trust?"


I know this is a really alien concept to those in the chronic and possibly terminal throws of expertitis, but I trust MYSELF. I trust my God-given intelligence and discernment to read, to think, to study, to evaluate, and to draw conclusions based on credible evidence and real-world experience, not media soundbites and talking heads (including "my doctor" - not that I have one, having deregistered from the GP years ago - given doctors are some of the most breathtakingly clueless people about the workings of the human body I have ever encountered).


It seems to drive "normies" into a state of demented frenzy and rage when I say this, because WHO DO I THINK I AM?! I'm not a doctor. Not a scientist. Not an "expert".


They actually seem to find it offensive that I am of the view that the person best qualified to and most responsible for protecting my health is, er, me.


And that ultimately is why we are in this mess. Courtesy of 12+ years of the state indoctrination camps we call "schools", too many people believe it is not "their place" to think for themselves, but instead to meekly outsource all their thinking and decision-making to "experts". This reality is deeply depressing on many levels, but answer me this, normies: if you have a vaccine or other pharmaceutical intervention and are left severely damaged and disabled as a result, who is going to be left with the responsibility for dealing with that?


Your doctor?

The NHS?

The WHO?


No. You. You are. If the aforementioned "experts" won't take 100% responsibility for any and all potential adverse effects (and they most certainly won't), why are you letting them take 100% responsibility for making decisions about your health?


I once again prevail upon all silent readers of my page to please THINK for themselves. As yet, the government hasn't slapped any bans, restrictions, or fines on this activity, so please do squeeze it in whilst you still can...

Non-Crime and Punishment

Posted by Miri on October 13, 2020 at 5:45 AM Comments comments (0)

n the UK, as in most of Europe, we don't have the death penalty, which means the very worst punishment our society recognises is life in prison. That is the harshest retribution our culture and judicial system can conceive of.


But why is life imprisonment considered such a uniquely severe penalty? After all, prisoners are kept warm, fed, and entertained. They're not physically tortured or starved. They have access to books and games and TV.


Yet it's still considered the worst punishment many societies have to offer. Why?


It's because it deprives people of the single most important facet of life - liberty. That is the only answer there can be, because otherwise, what's so bad about life in prison? All your basic needs are met, you don't have to worry about rent or bills, and you have access to entertainment and education. But prison is still recognised as a profound punishment and effective deterrent, because it removes liberty and prohibits independence and self-determination - which all societies innately know are the most important parts of life, and therefore removing them, the worst punishment.


So: compare that to our "new normal", where we've lost our jobs and must depend on the state to subsidise us, we can't see family and friends, and we are severely restricted in our movements, restrictions which are enforced by the state.


"What are you complaining about?" Demand the muzzled masses. "Aren't you being kept warm? Aren't you well fed? Aren't your rent and bills being covered? Don't you have Netflix and Facebook and YouTube? Can't you do your studies online?"


Well - you could say the exact same thing to someone doing a life sentence for murder. If "lockdown" isn't so bad, then neither is life in prison, because there is no material difference between the two.


That is why these measures are so abhorrent and so unjustifiable, so completely and utterly obscene. We have delivered society's worst punishment - the forcible removal of liberty by the state - to millions of completely innocent people, who have been treated with more indignity and contempt than sadistic mass murderers, who uniformly get the right to a trial, a defence, and due process before their liberty is permanently stripped from them.


If I accuse someone of a crime and want them to be sent to prison, then there are processes and protocols that must be rigorously adhered to, such as the production of evidence and then a trial, where the accused has the right to a defence, and to appeal.


Yet, if I want to accuse someone of potentially being "Covid positive" (which, although you'd be forgiven for thinking otherwise, is not actually a crime) and have them put under house arrest, again and again and again, I need produce no evidence. There is no due process, and they have no right to any objection, defence or appeal. I can strip all liberty from anyone I like, any time I like, and be fully backed up by the state, all on the basis of nothing. I can (we all can) condemn someone, anyone at all, to society's worst fate - the forcible removal of liberty by the state (£10,000 penalty if you breach "self-isolation" rules) - for absolutely nothing, and there's not a single thing they can do about it. That means, the current reality is, convicted mass murderers serving life sentences in prison have more human rights than you or me; because they went through due process before being stripped of their liberty and forcibly detained by the state. We have not.


Let's just repeat that: we are all being subjected to society's worst punishment, without even the rights we extend to society's most depraved criminals. It is utterly inconceivable that that could be true in a 21st century liberal democracy. But it is.

Politicising the Pantomime

Posted by Miri on October 10, 2020 at 5:45 AM Comments comments (0)

It's most interesting to note it is all the more "right-wing" newspapers and figures opposing lockdown (Daily Mail, Telegraph, Spiked, and their various journalists and contributors), whilst the holy "liberal" (har de har) shibboleths of the Guardian, BBC and Independent keep up their banshee-like shrieking for ever tighter restrictions.


When the death count does really start to sharply rise, as it will very soon, courtesy of 'flu vaccines, contaminated test kits, months of sedentary solitary confinement, and filthy face nappies, this will then be used as another stick to beat the "evil right-wingers" with (bearing in mind the definition of "right winger" is now - quite dizzyingly perversely, given we ostensibly have a Conservative government - anyone who disagrees with the state on anything).


Once the deaths start spiking and the hospital beds start filling up - as happens every "flu (vaccine) season" - the "right wing" (e.g. any and everyone who has ever opposed lockdown restrictions) will be painted as selfish, reckless, science-denying granny-killers, whilst the noble, holy, Guardianistas, who obediently sacrificed their entire lives upon state command and begged for ever more to be taken away from them, will be canonised as altruistic saints whose advanced intellects and superior moral compasses allowed them to have the foresight and to make the sacrifices that the "right wingers" were just too evil, selfish, and thick to do.


Have you noticed how all the anti-lockdown protests are ALWAYS characterised by the press as "right wing", when there is no evidence those attending share any particular political allegiance? Has the press made any attempt to interview protestors in significant numbers and establish the most common political leanings? Of course not, so why this relentless mischaracterisation? It's because the whole thing is being carefully stage-managed to set up anyone who opposes Holy State and Dear Leader as "right wing", a slur we have all been taught to conflate with the worst character traits and historical figures imaginable.


So, the more the "right wing" mainstream press and talking heads oppose lockdown, and the more the "liberal" ones support it, the more I worry about what the endgame is with this, and whether it is about - very cleverly and persuasively, certainly - stage-managing us into a trap. The oldest trick in the post-war book - Reductio ad Hitlerum.


In short: anyone who opposes the state-us quo is a Nazi.


(Never mind the fact Nazi is an abbreviation of National SOCIALIST - why let the truth get in the way of a good story? The state certainly never has.)
