I wish y’all have a goody morning and feeling well and unfazed by this terrible pandemic (most of us a hundreds of miles away from the nearest infected person). Still we’re all sitting at home in fear of something bad, something sinister coming but slowly growing a bit angry and asking our own motives for locking ourselves away. Totally concurrent with gov’mt rules and even – in some countries – states of emergency. If at least we could feel the earth shaking, the forrests burning. But no, this killer is creepy and silent. And our best plan of action, the best way to fight (!) the pandemic is by sitting at home, sleeping in, eating unhealthy food (lots of) and getting fatter and more drowsy and tired by the minute. Really? That’s all you want from us?
Mr. President, I could do this for the rest of my life! 🙂
It’s hard to believe, right? How can we be that stupid? Why aren’t we out there, climbing mountains, swimming/surfing/sailing at the beaches? It’s not like those activities get us close or even dangerously close to other people. People that are most probably as untouched by any virus as we are.
Is this maybe just a crazy sociology experiment? How to steer the biggest mass of humans ever to jail themselves and shut up about everything? “Don’t complain about your cruel fate, you could bring death onto other people if you break the curfew!” So we comply, because all other thoughts are just tinfoil conspiracy theories … right? I mean, our gov’mts would never do that.
And then we remember 9/11 and how the US gov’mt didn’t just trick the US population but the whole fukn world into invasion of Iraq. And we know it was all just a bloddy lie and a rather well-orchestrated mass-delusion. And we’re ashamed now for believing a single word of our leaders.
We will never fall for their fascist mindgames again!
And now look where we are. Look what we do … or don’t do.
What we don’t do is living our usual self-determined, more or less free lives!
We are being herded, we are chaperoned, guided, steered, surveiled, curfewed. We’ve even been told how often and how to wash our hands, FFS! We are exactly the sheeples fukn know-it-alls like Orca are always warning us not to become. 😮
We are every fukn president’s/dictator’s wet dream. Democracy is canceled for now, and we understand that. It has to be done. Let’s get comfortable with being not comfortable. Because COVID-19! That’s a very good reason to give up our most basic human rights. 😦
Oh jeeze, on top of my dystopian fantasies, just now (9 a.m.) the sirens went off. Ok, 9 a.m. gives it away, this must be a drill. But still this is kinda creepy. 😮 Hey, Mr. Mayor, the town’s people didn’t need that!
Still, let’s not forget to wash our hands, ok?
