Death by cruel stupidity

There is then this perspective as well: What if they gave a pandemic and nobody came?.

Just imagine if no one knew that there has been a ‘novel’ COVID-19 virus ‘pandemic’ sweeping our nation and the world for the past 20 months or so. What if people weren’t subjected to nonstop body count and ‘case’ tallies? What if they didn’t know about the hyper-wrong, grossly inflated death projections in early 2020 from that mathematical virus model and its always-wrong author in England? What if we hadn’t had a similarly accuracy-challenged little Fauci-gnome-man spreading fear and hysteria? What if the CDC hadn’t illegally changed the death coding requirements in early 2020 to count anyone dying with COVID-19 as dying from COVID-19? What if more people knew that the CDC has stated that the number of deaths due to COVID-19 alone is around 6% of the total deaths claimed? What if people knew that the survival rate of those infected with COVID-19 is about 99.7%?

And the what-ifs continue at the link. Someone is up to no good and they are not about to stop. That is about all we can be sure of at this stage, but they will do a lot of damage before they are through, if we can ever get them to stop.

And then there’s that woman in New South Wales.

Which for some reason calls to mind Max Weber:

‘Every state is founded on force,’ said Trotsky at Brest-Litovsk. That is indeed right. If no social institutions existed which knew the use of violence, then the concept of ‘state’ would be eliminated, and a condition would emerge that could be designated as ‘anarchy,’ in the specific sense of this word. Of course, force is certainly not the normal or the only means of the state – nobody says that – but force is a means specific to the state.

Today the relation between the state and violence is an especially intimate one. In the past, the most varied institutions have known the use of physical force as quite normal. Today, however, we have to say that a state is a human community that (successfully) claims the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force within a given territory.

Note that ‘territory’ is one of the characteristics of the state. Specifically, at the present time, the right to use physical force is ascribed to other institutions or to individuals only to the extent to which the state permits it. The state is considered the sole source of the ‘right’ to use violence.
