The Exigent Duality

Getting a vaccine for the WuFlu is silly, on multiple grounds: the virus is materially zero risk for virtually everyone, so if the vaccine carries an even one percent risk, it's not worth it; and there are not just hundreds of corona viruses in the world, but several different variants of WuFlu by itself-- one would be in a continuous state of flooding their body with potentially dangerous cell-altering materials, trying to prevent all of these various diseases.

And yet, governments are clearly going to mandate these, treating self-aware sentient humans like mere cattle. Delingpole warns of a "two-tier system" with a "persecuted underclass" of people who will be denied the right to travel or go to restaurants. But it's even worse than he thinks: we're already there. By politely declining to wear a burqa, this writer is already being denied access to health care and even the ability to shop for groceries: it's an unsettling, dystopian feeling, and it seems as though it will have no end.

A lot of this boils down to the common strain of sentiment these days, which is as follows when worded plainly: "there are two kinds of people in the world: smart people, and dumb people-- and smart people are morally right in telling dumb people what to think." The problem is that more often than not, the "smart" people are dumber than the "dumb" people-- they just don't have the self-awareness to see that they are objectively wrong about so many things. And yet, they want to be the arbiters working at Facebook's "Ministry of Truth", or mandating burqas and vaccinations.
