According to the ideology of hyper-humanism, government can create a risk-free, trouble-free, paradise of a world if only it’s given enough power–lots and lots and lots of power–and human beings obey that power… one way or another, heh-heh.
So it makes sense to teach adults a habit of obedience, as if they were toddlers or dogs. Adults get ideas above their station. They think they can live their lives without government telling them how to live. Tarnation! We’ll never get paradise if people don’t obey the government!
Now, according to a confidential source who is not to be relied on for a minute, the whole COVID-19 pandemic was designed as “a course in obedience” for the entire adult human population. The idea is, obey or the virus’ll kill ya. Obey no matter how big a hardship it is–lose your job, lose your business, lose Christmas with your family, wear a mask all the time, wear two masks, endure that jackanapes Fauci on your TV screen and pretend you believe him… All that hard and annoying stuff. Of course it’s not going to do you any good. The whole idea is to teach you to obey.
Just like if you were a dog.
So, sure, the nasty virus does really exist, they did take the trouble to brew it up in the lab and let it get loose, and heaven help you if you’re a patient in a nursing home and a COVID case comes in–
But like the man said, never let a good crisis go to waste!
After all, we believe that sinners and fools can create a government that’s neither sinful nor foolish… don’t we?
