Anarcho-Tyranny Update By Charles Taylor
Despite anarcho-tyrannical moves to restrict personal movement, and personal everything, the coronavirus continues to spread across the US, with New York receiving, what the mainstream media calls an “apocalyptic surge” in cases. Sure, some dispute this, but my view is to be cautious, this is not a time for bold denial of anything, but to carefully watch the territory, guarding one’s supply of beef and beans.
Still, this crisis has pushed the buttons putting the system into pandemic paranoia mode, with this case from Chicago being now typical of what the system is doing, and will do:
“Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot threatened to shut down public areas on Wednesday after becoming increasingly frustrated with people disobeying the COVID-19 stay-at-home order. The mayor's warning also made clear that anyone breaking the new measure would be fined or even possibly arrested, reported CBS Chicago. "Stay at home. Only go out for essentials. You have to readjust your thinking. Be smart," Lightfoot said at a Wednesday afternoon press conference. "Not only will our police be deployed to shut them down if you are not abiding by these orders we will be forced to shut down the parks and lakefront. The situation Is deadly serious and we need you take it deadly seriously." Lightfoot said the public is forbidden to spend long periods outdoors amid a virus crisis that is sweeping across the state. "You cannot go on long bike rides. Playgrounds are shut down. You must abide by the order. Outside, is for a brief respite, not for 5Ks. I can't emphasize enough that we abide the rules." Doctor Allison Arwady from the Chicago Department of Public Health said the mayor's social distancing measures serve as a means to flatten the pandemic curve and slowdown infections in the region. "We don't have a vaccine. We don't have a treatment. Chicago has an A for preparedness. But we are planning for some real worst-case scenarios," Arwady said. "The next two to three weeks will be the most important time to do everything we can to flatten that curve. Doing that is what will keep our hospitals going." As of Thursday morning, Illinois has 1,870 confirmed cases and 19 deaths. Across the US, cases have just hit 69,197, with 1,046 deaths, as the pandemic curve is now exponential.’
However, taking a lateral thinking perspective on this, bugging in is probably pretty sensible given what is likely to come from this, but not for the woke reasons given by the Chicagoese. The bottom line is that one needs to defend one’s home, which needs to be transformed into a sustainable base, and going out and working was not mean to be the meaning of life. Time to get local, and back to basics, both for individuals and society.
