"Prove all things: hold fast that which is good"
(1 John 4:1a; 1 Thessalonians 5:21)
"Instant imposition of a [statist] totalitarian system. Individuality
suppressed. Families divided.
Religious, cultural, educational institutions closed down. Work, movement, information regulated by the state. Life and death decided by the state.
The transformation has been so successful here because it builds upon a deeply entrenched pre-existing machinery and ideology of welfare,
in which a large proportion of the people has come to believe it has a right and need to be looked after from cradle to grave by the government.
All they required was a pretext, an excuse -- no matter how flimsy -- and completely by coincidence the CCP flu virus arrived at the perfect moment..."

fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind"

2020: The Year that God Still Proclaims Good Tidings of Great Joy (23 December 2020)
"2020 was an epoch-defining year. It wasn't, as many suppose, a year in which we experienced a public health crisis, which Governments then did their very best to manage our way through, so that we can eventually come out the other end and go back to the lives we were living before. No, something changed, and a whole Pandora's Box was opened to unleash a torrent of great evils that will not easily be put back..."
2020: The Year the Church Was As Sharp As A Two-Edged Marshmallow (21 December 2020)
"I must admit to being more than a little stunned by the reaction of many churches this year ... I understand there may have been nervousness back in March, when some feared we were about to see a sort of Plague coming our way ... 2020 has exposed a feebleness and a hollowness at the heart of many churches, as well as a lack of proper theological framework with which to look at the whole Covid situation and frame a response to it. Instead, many churches have let the likes of Johnson, Hancock, Whitty and Vallance do their thinking for them..."
2020: The Year We Sold Our Liberties For A Medical Tyranny (19 December 2020)
"This year has seen what looks like the birth of a new religion. Let us call it Covidianity. It has its Prophets (eg. Neil Ferguson); its Priesthood of experts (eg. Whitty and Vallance); its own Soteriology (eg. The Vaccine of Salvation); its evangelists (eg. Piers Morgan); its own eschatology (eg. The New Normal); and of course its heretics (anyone questioning the data or the narrative). Not everyone who has adopted the bizarre practices of Covidianity is a Covidian. Many have been cowed into it somewhat unwillingly; many have been bamboozled into it somewhat unwittingly; and many others just do not seem to have thought through what is being done to them, much less whether it is right, necessary and proportionate..."
2020: The Year We Let Ourselves Be Infantilised and Dehumanised (17 December 2020)
"We have now had nearly nine months of being treated like utter imbeciles. A once great country with a once free people has now been reduced to the level of being governed by pathetic, childish slogans. And for some reason we have allowed ourselves to be infantilised. I am utterly baffled as to how people can have sat through some of these slogans being introduced without responding with howls of laughter ... More recently, it has been decided that the slogans were maybe a bit too high-brow and needed to be simplified further, this time into monosyllables: ... it has felt eerily like suddenly being thrust into the world's largest Kindergarten with teacher talking down to his little charges as if they were really, really stupid ... Millions of people humiliated by the Marketing Team of Covid-19 and their infantile slogans ... That was the year we just lived through..."
2020: The Year We Lost the Plot (14 December 2020)
"'Our Government, along with Governments around the world will shortly announce the quarantining of whole populations for a seasonal respiratory virus which leaves 99.8 - 99.9% of those who get it in the land of the living. What is more, they will also announce a shutdown of the entire economy for months and then,. when the epidemic has actually gone, will mandate that you cover the lower half of your face with a bit of cloth. They will do this by frightening people into compliance with a barrage of propaganda, slogans, data entirely taken out of context, and the threat of massive fines.' Anyone making this claim at the beginning of the year would rightly have been thought to have mislaid their marbles, long ago. But here we are, at the end of the same year, and it is precisely what has happened. Only it is much worse than that..."
"Covid-19 is supposedly a pneumonia as a complication of SARS-COV-2, but ...
"[T]he UK Government's reaction to Covid-19 has been way beyond anything anyone could call proportional. It has been unnecessarily, grotesquely exaggerated, and pointlessly damaging" [source].
"As Frank Herbert wrote in his novel, Dune, 'Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration' and collective fear is also the primary tool that governments have long used to bring potentially recalcitrant populations under control... sometimes to the point of obliteration. Historically, that type of fear is not sudden but eats away at the heart and soul of a people one small nibble at a time until the minds of a now docile demographic willingly acquiesce to any number of outrageous edicts and restraints upon their lives and freedoms in the hope that in so doing this will ensure their personal survival. And note always that once this induced fear has taken a firm hold the decisive instruments of draconian suppression are placed in the hands of powerful enforcement agencies who invariably career out of control and become a law unto themselves, quickly becoming too big and too powerful for even the political drones who unleashed them to restrain.
"Look about you now at the actions and verbal vomitus coming from HM Government's emergent blue uniformed SS, particularly their local Obersturmbannführers so erroneously referred to as Chief Constables. (Did anyone else notice the Home Secretary singing their praises at the daily briefing session a few days ago... with the senior Obergruppenführer by her side?) Have no doubt about it, this is the situation extant in so many once-democratic countries throughout the Anglosphere and the Staatspolizei certainly won't give up their intoxicating new found powers easily, so think again - is it really worth the candle that you should sell your children into a future defined only by blind obedience to the Diktats of a monolithic controlling State in order to prolong your lives by a few years? 'Action this day or never' is a cliché that has so often turned out to be a truism ...
"In conclusion, I am convinced that above all other political aberrations Selective Policing is the definitive sign of a corrupted Establishment acting with malignant intent to a hidden agenda and thus, with reference to the two preceding questions, I regret that I must leave you to mentally fill in, in private, those details which we are not permitted to mention in the public domain or face being prosecuted for a hate crime if we do... damn! How Orwellian is that?" [Reader's comment at source].
"Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities" (Voltaire)
"Well, we're now living in a time where a huge chunk of the global population seem to believe that wearing a face-nappy or a face-shield, and quarantining the healthy, and destroying the economy, and putting millions out of work, and not treating cancer patients, and preventing dying people from having family at their bedside in their final hours, and keeping humanity from each other with anti-social distancing, and treating school-children like this: ... and this: ... and this: ... is somehow justified. These are absurdities. And the vast majority of people either firmly believe in them, or at the very least, tacitly endorse them through lack of resistance ...
"But with sufficient amounts of fear and propaganda pumped into their brains for months on end, [people have] been convinced that to protect them from a virus with the same fatality rate as the flu, they believe it is justified to wear a face-mask. Re-breathing in their own CO2, compromising their immune systems, and even breathing through [the mask] when it's soaking wet and thus increasing their chances of becoming actually sick.
"What can one say about the mindset of a populace that is comprised of docile, reprogrammable sheep, with a herd mentality and no critical or rational thinking? That, I fear, may be a society that will permit tyranny, and even atrocities, because it lacks the ability to question media messaging, government mandates, and reflect on the nature of reality and their own behaviour. Moreover, a people who have outsourced their critical and reasoning ability to someone else, will soon find that evil flourishes in a moral vacuum.
"Truly horrific outcomes become possible, when the populace at large have been trained to place their unwavering trust in authority and simply obey government mandates without question" [source].
"In the UK, it is worth recapping what it is we are consenting to with the Coronavirus Act:
"He that dwelleth in the
secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
