They aren’t swastikas. Everyone with eyes should read The Shock Doctrine. Or at least order it via Amazon for the irony. Then drink a Cherry Coke.

I would add Columbine by Dave Cullen to the list. You will never take the news seriously again after reading it. 

Any more details? I’ll look into them

I am going to be brutally honest.    As a new Dad I am scared shitless. A new case of coronavirus popped up nine miles away from where I live. So it is here. My wife's dad lives with us at t

Here are the official Coronavirus guidelines:   1. Basically, you can't leave the house for any reason, but if you have to, then you can.   2. Masks are useless, but maybe you have

The Shock Doctrine is a must read during the covid-1984 times.

They followed the formula exactly. They shocked everyone with a disaster, then isolated everyone, deprived them of human contact and tortured us with fear, then while we were stunned and lost our identities they rushed through a bunch authoritarian policies and created new private markets they were setup to profit from.

Noam Chomsky makes a great read too given the current context. Lots of food for thought.

 

The Shock Doctrine is a bible to understand the working of the world’s politics in the last 60 years. Wars, coups, dictatorships, economic crisis... it’s the playbook for how societies have been tramsformed following the same mechanism. Violent coups and wars are not the tool of choice anymore. It’s currently deemed too barbaric for first world countries. Economic crisis has yielded great results (look at how they destroyed Greece... and even after that you have Eastern European countries begging to be a part of the Euro).

 

The US is suffering in their own soil what they have been doing to other countries for decades. Seems only fair. But the problem is that the ones that end up suffering and paying the bill are just regular citizens that don’t want to have anything to do with all the bs.

 

Basically the world is being held hostage by a reduced group of sociopaths who never went to therapy. It all boils down to bad parenting and rotten egos not being kept in check.

 

15 years ago, whenever I brought up that book (or No Logo, by the same author) I was met with more or less the same answer most of the time “Klein is too communist, too leftist, too red, too catastrophic in her observations, not realistic enough, her views are just caricatures, yaddah yaddah...”

I like hearing reviews in peoples own words, its more fun that way

 

I watched the documentary which was so-so. I’m sure the book is better I’ll have to track it down

It’s pretty complicated and intense. It’s a combo of Chicago school of economics and CIA torture programs. The book goes into detail of both and goes through of examples.

 

The book in general kind of puts forward the idea that what they used to do prisoners, wipeing their memory through torture or deprivation and then reprogramming them, they use the same techniques on whole populations.

 

Shock and Awe in the Iraq War for example. The shock creates a vacuum in the psyche and then they ram in a new regime, but the next part is that new markets are created by disaster. Like how Halliburton was ready to profit from the Iraq war.

 

And this is what the US government under Biden will be doing. It’s not socialism. It’s corporate fascism. The privatization of the government has been the trend. This all leads to Disaster Capitalism. So they set up to profit from the disaster. With the Iraq War they were looking for the excuse to go.

 

9/11 is the same thing but it turns it back on the US people for the first time maybe. And now Covid is another example, the same people that are scaring you with all these numbers and stats are the ones in government with investments in vaccines etc. It’s the element of insider trading that is sinister, creating new markets by starting wars or exploiting natural disasters. You can almost start to predict what the next disaster capitalism is going to be. Bill Gates is buying up land, bugging up plant based food. A meat crisis will be manufactured and all the rich people will be ready to go in that sector.

I've long stopped believing experts when it comes to covid. to me, they resemble monkey's with high hats.

 

they sacrifice quick and cautious actions with the need to be scientifically "accurate".

 

they are more concerned with losing their credibility as a scientists, than with helping people.

 

And also, most of them act really arrogant when you try to challenge them. "Who's the expert, me or you", they'll tell you with lots of smug

Two weeks to flatten the curve

Don't wear a mask

We said that because doctors need them

Numbers are dropping

Wear masks because it'll prevent transmission in passing encounters

No evidence for masks helping in passing encounters but shhhhhh

Get tested

Tests don't work

Wear masks at home

Get a vaccine

Wear two masks

Oh the vaccine and two masks won't let us get back to normal

Get another vaccine

 

It's a comedy of lies.

I keep saying we're gonna be wearing masks and socially distancing until we die, and that life will never, ever return to normal fully. You guys refuse to believe me. Well, believe what you're want. I am right.

I predict that going out to dinner will be a luxury thing, like the way going to a fancy restaurant is now, you know, a treat. Restaurants across the board will be forced to seriously up their price points to survive, and that means lower end restaurants will die out (your typical diner) because they'll ironically be too expensive for their own business model. No one is going to pay say, $25 for a regular burger. But all the restaurants are in such debt they're going to have to jack prices up - which will lead to all but maybe a minority surviving. You'll either cook your Bill Gates approved fake/"synthetic" meat at home, or use UberEats or Grubhub. Maybe Amazon will capitalize on this and launch its own sort of chain of "restaurants." You won't sit in them, they'll home deliver via Amazon delivery. Or some other tech company will step in.

Picture an entirely virtual world. Netlfix and chill except the chill might become rarer and rare and more virtual as well.

 

Economy will be supported by Stimulus packages, UBI, government spending on welfare type stuff, and public works projects etc, and mini wars. Wars create booming economies (look at post WWII or even how the economy was in an INCREDIBLE shape during Vietnam - it was only after Vietnam, as it wound down, that we entered Stagnation).
