Americans are marching to the beat of a different drummer. No longer concerned about freedom or their constitutional rights, they have allowed fear to dictate their every move. Despite emerging evidence suggesting this “pandemic outbreak” is not as bad as originally projected, Americans are still allowing themselves to be locked down in their homes and corralled in lines ̶ like cattle, while shopping.
Nationwide stores like Lowes, Home Depot and Wal-Mart have started enforcing social distancing rules, while allowing only a certain number of people in the store per 1000 square feet. This is very dehumanizing and is resulting in long waiting lines.
Church pastors are being arrested while criminals are being released from prison and more and more people are losing their jobs.
Yet, Americans for the most part, insist the government take these actions because they have allowed fear and irrational thinking to control them.
This is a conditioning process; a process designed to make us happy with our enslavement and accept our demise as a free, prosperous country.
Dr. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Health and advisor to President Trump over this matter, has been preaching gloom and doom from his bully pulpit.
He has advised Americans to expect a death toll possibly in the hundreds of thousands in the coming weeks.
Most Americans are unaware of the paper he published in The New England Journal of Medicine on March 26th 2020.
It’s as if the man is talking out of two sides of his mouth.
This paper, published in a peer-reviewed medical journal, suggests the consequences of Covid-19 may be no more severe than a seasonal flu with a death rate of less than one percent.
He does suggest a possible two percent rate for those that develop severe pneumonia symptoms; but as new data from New York suggests, this is occurring mostly in people with pre-existing health conditions.
In fact, much of the response to Covid-19 has been based on bad data.
Epidemiologist John Ioannidis, from Stanford University, notes that had it not been for the massive reporting and fear mongering over this alleged new virus, it would appear as nothing more than a harsh flu season.
On one hand, for those seeking alternative information, it seems this may have been over-hyped.
On the other, watching this play out as most people continue to pay attention to the mainstream media, we appear to be living in a dystopian novel.
People are increasingly allowing themselves to be controlled.
The consequences of over panicked reactions are already manifesting themselves in disturbing ways.
Our cell phones are being used, in some cases, to track us and our compliance with social distancing rules.
People are calling the police on one another, and apps are being created to make it easier to do so.
Worse than this even, is the effects this is having on the economy.
There were over ten million unemployment claims in March and that number is expected to climb.
Disturbingly, there is a definite correlation between the unemployment numbers and suicide rates.
According to a study by The Economist, for every point unemployment goes up, 21 out of every 100,000 people commit suicide.
This could mean many more hundreds of thousands dead than the predicted numbers killed by the virus.
This isn’t even counting those that could die simply by losing everything and starving.
In Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, a conditioning process is described where newly hatched babies are shocked whenever they are shown flowers and books.
When this is done enough, an association is created between the pain and the image being shown to them, leading to the hatred and rejection of flowers and books.
This is very similar to the conditioning process taking place today.
Through the media, Americans are constantly being exposed to stimulus designed to cause fear and panic.
While watching television, the brains limbic system, which governs our survival responses in times of panic, is more active than the neo-cortex, which allows us to think logically.
Therefore, we perceive what is being presented to us in a manner that makes us react with fear.
We believe we are in the middle of a massive pandemic and turn to government for help.
The government enacts draconian controls and most of us thankfully accept them under the false notion that if we didn’t life would end, and we would all be doomed.
Just as the case in Huxley’s novel, any deviation from what the controllers want you to fear is met with hatred and vitriol.
Americans are blissfully marching into their own imprisonment, and they are happy about it because the government is protecting them.
