2020 Year In Review - 17GEN4
To list the top 10 news stories of the year would be like saying you are going to describe to someone how to write a book in 30 days. The planning involved in plotting and executing the script for 2020 was a massive undertaking. There is no need for conspiracy theories. Real-life events that occurred throughout much of 2020 would not have been believed if they had been predicted. Although conspiracy theorists are feeling pretty vindicated these days.
On March 16, 2020, the White House advised against any gatherings of more than 10 people. Just to place the closing 'bracket' on the other end of this Orwellian snap shot - On January 1, 2021, 'Portland Antifa Ring in the New Year by Hurling Molotovs at Federal Courthouse, Destroying Small Businesses.'  - This has now become one of the more common headlines throughout this year. The 'new normal,' if you will.
It is important to note that seemingly all of the problems that occurred throughout 2020 just happened to benefit the Democratic political agenda. Aren't they 'lucky?'
Our elected officials have since told independent small business owners that they are not allowed to open or operate at full capacity. This of course is like a 'slow bleed' to most small business owners who know how to do basic math and are aware that they are losing money even if they do try to stay open and operate within the government mandated guidelines.
I coined the phrase 'juxtaposition of tyranny' to describe how 'in effect' (which is how we should view most things these days) we currently have no equal application of laws in our justice system and the victims have become the criminals while the criminals are now the victims.
For example, you are not allowed to operate your small business 'normally' (because this is the 'new normal') under newly imposed government regulations. However, you are allowed to watch other privileged individuals in our society who have friends in high places burn down those businesses on the evening news. Why? Systemic white racism.
Law enforcement officials are told to 'stand down' in response to burning, looting and rioting which are commonly conflated with 'protesting' by those who now control the words we use to describe things related to behavior. But other government officials are instructed to 'shut you down' completely or arrest you if you try to operate your business legally... but not so fast. Remember, this is the new normal. That was the old normal.
And be sure to put on a mask. The mask dehumanizes you which makes it easier for them to exercise tyranny over you while simultaneously humiliating you. The mask is our own nationally mandated version of the burka. They do not have to look at your face when deploying their minions to scream obscenities at you - the same people people either doing the burning or who support the people doing the burning of your livelihood which is being slowly pulled out from underneath you every day you are not allowed to open.
News outlets display real surreal images of members of Congress as well as members of our military 'take a knee' to show solidarity with the individuals doing this to you.
Many people cannot recognize the concept of irony when it appears in practice. The one way street that tyranny travels along is hypocrisy. The practice of gaslighting by those subversive officials we elected to have power over us is one of the key components of the sociopathic behavior we are now compelled to accept. Stockholm syndrome.
Many of the people screaming at people for not wearing masks are not wearing masks themselves. The juxtaposition of tyranny.
At the top, you have to know that you are lying in order to 'function' in a position where you force others against their will to accept and do things that they know are wrong. If our leaders actually believed what they are saying, they would be similar to Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now. Manufacturing consent is a strategy used by leaders and governments throughout history to compel large numbers of people into behaving a certain way by initiating some threat and then frightening them with it enough so that they will obey as the government promises to protect them from the fear and hysteria they created.
The manufactured crisis that was used to manufacture consent and was used to control behavior in the year 2020 is believed by some to have been created in a lab in Wuhan, China. it was deployed at a strategic moment to create mass chaos, during which many things become more easily manipulated under the guise of protecting the masses.
Rationally thinking people have been forced to not only become afraid of but also feel sorry for the people who believe the coronavirus threat is real to the extent that it constitutes a national emergency capable of being labeled part of a global pandemic. Stockholm syndrome.
I feel sorry for the aging members of a family who own and operate the local convenience store when I watch their hysterical and forceful reactions to the masks and the religious ceremony that occurs at their counter where they make you pull up your mask and sanctimoniously bathe your hands in anti-bacterial holy water they have on tap.
