The Conspiracy Is Already Here

Uh oh.... looks like the MSM drones have decided to flog the whole 'conspiracy theory' dead horse again. 

Here's the thing though. Being a conspiracy nut seems to involve pointing out things that were - until thirty seconds ago - regarded as clear conflicts of interest. 

Meanwhile, the folks who are Following The Science are busy producing the world's worst superhero movie: beware the Slimeinator

To borrow a line from the Simpsons: your low-quality CGI says more than real evidence ever could.

That's the thing right there. The Scottish Government makes a propaganda piece but evades restrictions on political advertising on TV by calling it a public health message. Even though it's clearly meant to advocate for a specific policy and everyone knows it.

There's no secret conspiracy to undermine democracy, it's right out there in public. 

When the police kneel before some demonstrators and violently attack others, they're making it pretty clear that this whole 'equal under law' thing is long gone. 

Ditto, when a police officer beats up an old lady on camera with no consequences, then it's clear that whatever the law says about reasonable force, that only applies if you're not judged an enemy of the people. If you are, then paid agents of the state will work you over. 

This is banana republic stuff. 

Forget all the talk of DNA tagging and databases - it might or might not be true but all the key elements of a totalitarian state are already here. Rights for those the Government approves of, a sound beating for those it does not. That's literally what tyranny means.

Wikipedia's coronavirus page says there is no vaccine or antiviral for any coronavirus, but, mumble, mumble, there is research going on, mumble. Given that a bunch of coronaviruses contribute to the common cold and th there's still no cure for it, what are the chances that smthklineglaxodowchenicalsfarbencyberdynesoylentindustries will come up with a cure for cv19 before, well, we all die in our homes of loneliness or revert to cannibalism when the economy, greened and currency-inflated sputters back to mid-19th century levels, minus the ship building industry?
If Big Phatma took till the last decade of the 20th Century and the near extinction of the rhinoceros to assure weddkng night performance for the nervous or ageing few, why hasn't it grown Bezos-style rich by curing something that just about everybody gets once a year?
But who knows: perhaps this time the solution lies in traditional Chinese practises?
