The world phase changed to mass hysteria around March 11, 2020, and we must understand that phenomenon so it never happens again
We must study collective madness if we are to end democides
1/ On March 10, 2020, when I first spoke out against Covid irrationality, I had not appreciated how radical (and risky to my career) my common sense stance was
2/ But fast forward a couple days, and the culture had noticeably transitioned. A phase change had occurred, and most of the populace had become zombies.
3/ You were either on the side of Team Lockdown (“Team Two Weeks”), or you were a scumbag denier. It was clear to me that societies were about to engage in a prolonged bout of self-harm
4/ That a phase change occurred around March 10 aligns with the WHO congressional testimony on March 11, where one of the worst spreads of misinformation occurred, conflating infection and case fatality rate, making Covid look orders of magnitude worse than it is
5/ That shift to zombiesville was sudden, seemingly overnight. There was a month or two of accelerating activity preceding this, of course, but the big flip seems to have been about one third of the way into March.
6/ And it wasn’t in fact a flip into “zombiesville.” If ONLY the transformation had been into mere zombies! No. They transformed into super duper helpful, astronomically well-intentioned and morally demanding authoritarians, each with a mighty opinion (each ethically and scientifically justified — you can just ask any of the experts and they’ll tell you!) about every aspect of every one of our lives. THAT is the most dangerous force on Earth, not zombies.
7/ Colleagues, friends and family spurned me, accusing me of being selfish, of not following the Science.
8/ They claimed the evidence justified violating civil liberties en masse. It never does.
9/ “And it’s an emergency,” they said, “and so civil liberties don’t apply.” They do.
10/ “We MUST initiate swathes of protective restrictions! The Precautionary Principle tells us so!” they screamed. But they got it exactly backwards. The Precautionary Principle is about protecting us from our misguided efforts to help.
11/ They implemented lockdowns and told us they were common sense. Nothing could be further from the truth
12/ Your friends, neighbors and family demanded you mask up, despite even the most cursory understanding of aerosol spread telling you they can’t possibly contain them, and despite masks covering over our humanity.
13/ They insisted you take a medication or be fired, be unable to go to public institutions, travel, or get medical care, which is not only an abominable violation of informed consent, but doesn’t even make epidemiological sense if the medication worked and also slowed transmission.
14/ And — worst of all — they demanded you be censored, which they then went on to do. Millions were censored, even at the direction of the U.S. government (see our lawsuit at FreeX.group). They lost sight of — or never knew — the supreme importance of free expression
15/ …which transformed the crimes against humanity to a whole… new… level.
16/ We witnessed the forces of totalitarianism, and got a taste of what it’s like.
17/ We must figure out how to quell totalitarian forces. And we need a 21st century understanding of totalitarianism in order to do so. That’s why in Feb 2021 I launched the Free Expression Group, FreeX.group
