    I really do not mean to be offensive, but you guys are worried about these transhumanist elements because you have not read much of anything in your life, other than short burst Twitter feeds and extremely simplified articles. For instance, the Great Reset book is absolutely nothing new, it is your typical European style public-private partnership droning. Your gut reaction to this is fine, but people thinking that Klaus Schwab and gang have any kind of real influence on society is one of the most amusing elements of the Covid era.

    The conversations I've had with my bosses and colleagues over the last few days have been somewhat interesting. Earlier this week their body language suggested they just assumed I'd comply and had quizzical expressions that I interpreted as 'why aren't you just getting the damn shot, you fool?'.

    Today my supervisor walked me out of the office, sobbing. Another colleague admitted she was ashamed for just following the rules without questioning. And the overweight old lady who I've sat next to for 5 and a half years and though I knew quite well, said fuck all.

    I hate my job, but my wife seems to love hers and is devastated. My 17yo daughter has resisted extraordinary bribes from me, and what I thought were convincing arguments, to delay her v appointment, but she's adamant that she'll get it next week. I'd like to blame that on her being a dumb kid, but I've clearly failed as a parent and that hurts like hell.

    I save all the regular Chief Health Officer Directions that are published here, just to keep a record. 81 and counting. Direction 77 is no longer on the website, which is a shame, because it included these gems:

    "An occupier of a place and the proprieter of a business in the Darwin lockout area must (a) check whether any person entering the place or premises is a vaccinated or exempt person or an unvaccinated person; and (b) refuse entry to the place and premises of the business to an unvaccinated person"

    "A provider of activities or services in the Darwin lockout area must (a) check whether an person entering a place or premises where the activities or services are provided is a vaccinated or exempt person or an unvaccinated person; and (b) cease providing services and activities to unvaccinated persons"

    Some are resisting, small business in particular. Interestingly enough, some of the very remote Aboriginal communities are refusing to get the needles. Not sure if that is because they've already had a couple hundred years of the white man forcing shit on them or because most of the communities were 'saved' by the Christians and don't want a drug with the devil's blood in it (a local community priest allegedly said this to his congregation). Whatever their reason, they are proving quite the roadblock for a Chief Minister who keeps claiming this is all to save the vulnerable.

    The next few weeks will be interesting. For a town of just over 100k people, we get roughly 3-4000 to the weekly protests, which might not be much, but we make some noise. The cops and their pepper spray came out last week.

    Under our mandates, if we don't get our second needle by 24 December, we can't go to work, even if we've had the first. Merry Christmas and all that.

    I hear Melbourne and Sydney might be gearing up for some big protests this weekend. I hope so.

    Have a good one, all.
    That's rough with your Daughter. Any idea why she's so adamant about it? Is she just plugged into mainstream culture so much?

    Good luck at the protest, ours is next week, going to see if I can bring a few people along.

    This. More and more people are realising it, too, but it's very slippery and difficult to articulate - and impossible for the normies who see everything through the Left/Right paradigm.

    It started with Wokeism and Trans issues, and the talk of vaccine passports, social credit scores, and the prospect of being 24/7 enmeshed with the Internet of Things has made even more people feel a deep, even spiritual, sense of unease. The architects of this want to completely revise how we view ourselves and reality, and this project festers in every corner of our lives. People complain about the fact everything is politicized these days, and THIS is real reason why.

    anti, I really recommend this exposé video on this subject - please watch the whole thing. Since the author (worth a subscribe, by the way) released it, it has really preoccupied me. I think it will chime with you and irk our libertarian friends, and he hits on the something which is completely missed by many people here who constantly complain about the unfairness and untruthfulness of Woke Left/trans politics intruding on their little bubbles - whether its competitive sports, the military, or movie characters. They're missing the bigger picture.

    Wokeism & Our Transhuman Future - YouTube

    "If you claim someone is limited by something biological about themselves, whether that's race, gender or something else, then you are affirming physical constraints over the subjective psyche which is meant to be absolutely free. Both the Right and the Left justify themselves now with an appeal to the liberation of the self.

    In the case of the Left, they believe the self will be liberated by the destruction of prejudices. A destruction of things like racism, homophobia, but also a destruction of those embedded identities themselves and end to identification with national groups, with religious traditions, with gender. And the Left believes the best way to achieve this is by collective action, through the state.

    The establishment Right disagrees, but it's really only a pragmatic disagreement. The Right believes this trans-human future will be achieved through the function of the market - and they certainly have history on their side when they point to the market as the force which has liberated people from traditional gender roles, destroyed traditions and ended prejudice, brought women into the workforce and so on.

    This is the disagreement of establishment politics today, and both justify their sides of the project with reference to an absolute evil, and the absolute evil since the second world war has been the Nazis. Nazism occupies this metaphysical evil because it is the affirmation of the physical over the psychic to the point of a people being wiped out just for a physical characteristic. It is the absolute denial of the interior space of that group which was persecuted.

    And so, the Left and the Right justify their positions as basically the best position to prevent another genocide. The Left says that genocide was caused by racism, tribalism, collectivism and so the focus should be on destroying tribal collectivism through collective action. The Right says that genocide was caused by a worship of the state, and the way to prevent collective racialism, is by weakening the state and promoting individualism, individual maximalism and individual rights.

    This is the dynamic and dialectic of liberal, pluralist society - which is accelerating and becoming more explicit now with Wokeism."

    What's interesting is that many of the early proponents of "Woke Left" ideas were also proponents of transhumanism. An example is Martine Rothblatt. Martine is a trans-woman who has donated hundreds of millions to advocacy for the transgender movement, and she wrote a book on transhumanism called "From Transgender to Transhumanism" . In this book, she says explicitly that transgenderism is to be seen as a first-step. It's the bringing-in of a revolution of the "freedom of form", as she says. She spells out clearly this new picture of the world is about liberating the self from the physical world and technology will be the means how this is achieved.

    Eventually, just how prejudices about sex disappeared when women entered the workplace... technology will make it so that none of these physical differences matter any more. We'll all be augmented and it will be possible to separate our consciousness from the body, and so talking about someone's identity as related to the body, or physical world at all, is just going to be become outdated by technology. Transgenderism is the first step on the road to that recognition.

    In the book, she writes:
    "Together, law and science, heat and light, are the tools we must use to liberate society's potential for unlimited expression of sexual identity. As we do so, we evolve from wise man, Homo sapiens, to create person, Persona creatus. We emerge from our prison of sex into a frontier of gender. We step from a history of biological limits up to a future of cultural choice. We unleash at long last the full, unbridled power of human diversity on our planet's prolific problems. The outcome of this gender awakening will be a new species, a transhumanity one: one that as its fundamental purpose the assurance of a healthy and fulfilling life for all who value that right."

    If anything captures what Wokeism is, it's this passage. She's affirming the utopian project of the liberation of humanity from form, from nature. You can see the religious nature of this - where we started out with the constraint of the natural world, and we are progressing gradually towards this eschatological horizon of the final liberation of the self and humanity from the constraints of nature. In this pseudo-religion, technology and techno-capital takes on a religious significance. Technology is the means by which we are liberated from the physical world."

    Sometimes you read a book, come across a passage, and are floored that someone else had exactly the same thoughts as you. The above hit me that way. (Of course I shouldn't be surprised.)

    You can't force people to see through this scale of FUD. To most of us, this insanity appeared like a shock wave in traffic. There was little time for us to prepare ourselves for the specifics, and less so for those near us.

    At 17 years old, you'll stay closest to your daughter by not overplaying your hand. That much is certain.

    Don't disown. Preserve.
    You are far more forgiving than I. I don't see this as simple political disagreement anymore. There is an agenda at work here to completely ruin my life, and everyone supporting it is responsible for an attack on me and people I care for. I asked my girlfriend to get me "The Road to Serfdom" for Christmas this year, because we are essentially on that road right now.

    An interesting article I came across that attempts to give a physiological account of what is actually causing the myriad of health issues post vaccination. (RBC's stick to each other) and what you can do about it in both instances of post injection as well as covid itself. (IV bags of Vitamin C, failing that shit tons of vitamin C tablets with nebulised hydrogen peroxide)

    They wont let you leave.

    In America the "left" is decades ahead in preparation for any type of civil conflict, at any level.

    Here in Aus it's even worse. There is zero resistance to any form of marxist progression. We are sycophantically obedient to the government.

    Interesting connection. It is plausible that the Davos types support or engage in transhuman enthusiasms.

    FDA’s Smoking Gun: Disinformation Campaign Targeting Ivermectin

    @SteveKirsch
    These pieces of shit!

    Secured via Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by investigative reporter Linda Bonvie, the email involves esteemed members of the world’s top regulatory body bragging and boasting about how many tweets the “You’re not a horse” tweet did with engagement.

    Showcasing the agency’s front and central role in promoting propaganda, the author, Erica Jefferson, an associate commissioner for the FDA’s external affairs, boasts to Dr. Janet Woodcock, the FDA’s acting commissioner, how the “Not a Horse Tweet” got 14.5 million tweets. (See below)

    Jefferson expresses her excitement of the ‘FDA ivermectin/COVID-19 tweet’ going viral. She writes, ‘needless to say the straightforward and clever (humourous) communication ..saw the tweet quickly going viral and being share across multiple social medium platforms (where it was amplified by other influencers) and resulted in additional news coverage by: NYT, CNN, NBC News and Rolling Stone to name but a few.’

    This is absurd, and I'm not interested in reading the rest of it.

    Nonetheless, some smart successful types are going for it. Search for "trillion souls in a box" gets you this:

    On the other hand, that particular transhumanist is not impressed with SARS-Cov-2 "a mere 90 base pairs" (or something). Doesn't seem to have drank from that well.
