reminiscent of Augustus Gloop
savoring a bit of chocolate
the people can always be brought
to the bidding of the leaders.
That is easy.
All you have to do is tell them
they are being attacked
and denounce the pacifists
for lack of patriotism,
and exposing the country
to greater danger"
Today we are no more at threat from disease than at any time in recent history, but a few cases of measles - not a death in sight, not even an injury - can now be used to bring a once great nation to its knees.
Like Goering's "pacifists" we know perfectly well that there is no threat, certainly no threat which should involve citizens in voluntarily surrendering ultimate rights over their bodies to the state, and no grounds for turning well-informed doubters into public enemies.
These people want absolute power, partly because that is what they want, and partly because they are petrified of the truth:
We thought we had learned something from the Second World War:
After the war against what was supposed to be the most evil regime in human history the Nuremberg Code was instituted, which enshrined the idea that forced experimentation on humans was wrong, that informed consent was necessary for medical procedures.
Now everything is twisted so that these pitiful, incompetent, corrupt bureaucrats are becoming absolute dictators, answerable to no truth or criticism - allegedly protectors of ourselves against ourselves - the hirelings of the pharmaceutical state.
politicians prostrate themselves before revealed stupidity, and they
do not really seem to be in charge of the game either.
