New Shrew here - loved the article, thank you. Well, I was a sort of half-breed shroop or something until the summer of 21. Always cared about the truth BUT allowed myself to be convinced for a while that I was in particular danger from the new plague because of my age and a couple of risk factors. But I didn't think lockdown was OK or sensible, especially for young people and even more especially schools, and I absolutely opposed vaxx passes, which I refused to have even after being dumb enough to take two doses of the genetic goop. Those of us who got it early were slightly disadvantaged, in that, by the time it was offered to younger folks (which I thought was ridiculous anyway but have long since realised was utterly evil, and that's before you start on kids) there was more information out there.

Anyway, it is what it is. I can't undo it. I have a triple-jabbed friend who is no longer here, as so many of us have, and, in the same small friendship group (6 people), if you include their families there have been 4 deaths in the months following the first booster and one heart attack a couple of months after the second jab, which would certainly have been fatal if the ambulance crew hadn't already been there when she arrested. But are any of them joining dots? Not one. Not even curious, and that's after me warning them before the boosters in September 21 and being told that factcheck.com says they're safe and effective so we don't want to hear any more, thank you. For mentioning the biometric control, Gates-y side of things I was advised to see my GP because my mental health didn't seem to be as it should be.

Anyway, re your subsequent post about materialism and spirituality, I'm with Mark Crispin Miller in thinking that you often can't get people to see what's going on, no matter the evidence, if they don't recognise that our institutions aren't just incompetent, but actively malevolent. They don't want to see that. And materialists don't really have any understanding of malevolence. We were told for decades that bad people weren't really bad - they were just unfortunate in their upbringing and experiences. People need to reacquaint themselves with the notion of pure, unadulterated evil (looking at you, Klaus, Billy and Fauci, but not just you).

Apologies for the long post.

I got a t-shirt recently that says, "Tested Positive for Critical Thinking." Some people scowl at it lol. Why? Well, some people say, "My grandfather died from Covid!" Well, ok. ....but really...died *from* Covid? maybe, in which case I'm sorry. But he probably didn't die from covid. How dare you?! and so on.

Regarding the deplorables, myself included, it's funny that some of the top activists in the vax-free movement are all lifelong democrats: RFKJ (obviously), Naomi Wolf (obviously), Peter McCullough, Del Bigtree, Pierre Cory, Michael Yeadon (Labour), Mark Crispin Miller...all lifelong dems, some of whom are regularly on Steve Bannon's War Room! Strange times. The two-party system is a relic of the corrupt French (color) Revolution. It's a great way to divide and conquer.

Thanks to all those who commented...but I am sad not more people thought this was funny and cute...a bit of humour in this darkness! I thought it was rather clever, so I am patting myself on the back!!   😀

I think it's spot on. Glad you do too. I have thought since this catastrophe that most people who go along don't have any idea of themselves as thinking creatures, and that they were given this capacity so they could use it for their own benefit, protection and survival, as well as to succeed socially and comply. I guess we are getting into Ayn Rand territory here....

Your comment about the risk of being called a "conspiracy theorist" is an important one. I am always on the watch for that. With the covid fraud, since day 1 I have been careful not to fall into that trap. Although I do not rule out the possible truth behind many "conspiracy theories" (the intentional creation of the virus, BG and WEF control of the world, the "vaccine" as a tool for depopulation...) I do not use any of those as arguments against the "official narrative". Since my background is medicine and public health, I will always argue based on what I consider solid (I would think unquestionable) medical, PH and ethical principles: PCRs cannot define a "case", asymptomatic transmission is BS, masks cannot work, and should never be mandated, everything about these "vaccines" is contrary to what we know about immunity... It is still a mistery to me how anyone with medical education can be a SHEEP; but at least they cannot say I am basing my arguments on any "conspiracy theory".

Great article!

This is great Ivan. I have seen a rather huge band of "blur" between truth and fiction even within this movement (shrew). Although we can be certain about particular things (the things you listed for example) it is important not to blindly dismiss anything related or associated with those untruths...for a simple example, flush all of medical science down the toilet simply because there are some very disturbing areas of severe corruption. It is interesting, for another example, how if you are against the Covid vaccines, you are against all vaccines and you get labeled "anti-vaxx"...

That being said, it is difficult for me, as one, to trust anything they inject into my body. Maybe that is healthy to question everything, but it certainly can drive you crazy!!

Thank you so much for your contribution!!

When you were talking about distrusting the men in suits, my thoughts went to the well-established charities. If you really look at how much of your donation actually gets to the cause, it’s very very little… but somehow “The Canadian Cancer Society” sounds credible so most people are happy to give..which gives those “men in suits” a nice fat salary!

Another good article.. keep ‘Em coming!

Yes...thank you. The "men in suits" is of course a metaphor for "clean cut authority"...if I published this on Off-Guardian (which I will not) some of the commentators would attack me for using the obviously male reference.😃

I agree with your analysis of charities. It is so difficult these days to make proper assessments. I am not sure what the solution is...maybe wiping the slate clean and starting over?? Hmmmm.

Thanks so much for reading and for your comment!!
