20 Things I've Learned (Or Had Confirmed) About Humanity During The 'Pandemic' (THREAD):

1/ Most people would rather be in the majority, than be right.
2/ At least 20% of the population has strong authoritarian tendencies, which will emerge under the right conditions.
3/ Fear of death is only rivalled by the fear of social disapproval. The latter could be stronger.
4/ Propaganda is just as effective in the modern day as it was 100 years ago. Access to limitless information has not made the average person any wiser.
5/ Anything and everything can and will be politicised by the media, government, and those who trust them.
6/ Many politicians and large corporations will gladly sacrifice human lives if it is conducive to their political and financial aspirations.
7/ Most people believe the government acts in the best interests of the people. Even many who are vocal critics of the government.
8/ Once they have made up their mind, most people would rather to commit to being wrong, than admit they were wrong.
9/ Humans can be trained and conditioned quickly and relatively easily to significantly alter their behaviours - for better or worse.
10/ When sufficiently frightened, most people will not only accept authoritarianism, but demand it.
11/ People who are dismissed as 'conspiracy theorists' are often well researched and simply ahead of the mainstream narrative.
12/ Most people value safety and security more than freedom and liberty, even if said 'safety' is merely an illusion.
13/ Hedonic adaptation occurs in both directions, and once inertia sets in, it is difficult to get people back to 'normal'.
14/ A significant % of people thoroughly enjoy being subjugated.
15/ 'The Science' has evolved into a secular pseudo-religion for millions of people in the West. This religion has little to do with science itself.
16/ Most people care more about looking like they are doing the right thing, rather than actually doing the right thing.
17/ Politics, the media, science, and the healthcare industries are all corrupt, to varying degrees. Scientists and doctors can be bought as easily as politicians.
18/ If you make people comfortable enough, they will not revolt. You can keep millions docile as you strip their rights, by giving them money, food, and entertainment.
19/ Modern people are overly complacent and lack vigilance when it comes to defending their own freedoms from government overreach.
20/ It's easier to fool a person than to convince them that they have been fooled.
Bonus thought:

21/ Most people are fairly compassionate and have good intentions (this is good)

As a result, most people deeply struggle to understand that some people, including our 'leaders', CAN have malicious or perverse intentions (this is bad).

I remember when 50% of the population was brainwashed into being afraid of getting within 6 feet of a perfectly healthy human being. 😂
Remember when people were terrified of and got angry at others for simply showing their faces in public?

I remember... 👀
Remember when people were ready to fine, segregate, discriminate against, deny healthcare to, or even imprison their friends, family members, and neighbours?

Because they didn't want to inject a new mRNA shot into their bloodstream that wouldn't prevent infection and spread?

Individual empowerment and social, cultural & moral fabric are all more important than tribal party politics.

Thats why I discuss these things far more than the nitty gritty of 'Tories', 'Labour', 'Republicans', 'Democrats', etc.

Hard-line tribal warfare is exhausting to me.
When people get TOO deep into binary party politics, it often blinds and distracts them from things that would really move the needle in their life and others'.

It becomes a team sport and form of entertainment, with a big championship (election) every 4 years.
This opinion may be unpopular, but until you have your general life in order (habits, beliefs, health, wealth, happiness), spending HUGE amounts of time on politics is a wasteful distraction.

Get your self, family, money and relationships in order first. You have limited energy.

It sucks how every time there is a mass shooting or other heinous crime in the USA, many people immediately make it about 'race' and 'Democrats' and 'Republicans'.

People ride harder for their skin colour and political party than they do for humanity. So nothing gets fixed.
This horrible American past time of turning EVERYTHING into a racial issue and partisan political issue really needs to end. It's sick.

I love the USA, but damn, this is an awful habit.

You need to be able to unite on SOMETHING.
Using every single tragedy to immediately 'dunk' on the 'opposition' and ram down your pet policy clearly isn't helping...

People need to decide on if they want to score points for their 'team' OR actually try to fix stuff. Together.

Applies at all levels and to all 'sides'.

I'm amazed by how so many people fail to see any connection between THE POLICIES THEY DEMANDED AND ENFORCED for the past 2.5 years and problems such as inflation, worse mental health, staff shortages, and stunted childhood development.

Literally the result of what you advocated.
The people I feel bad for are those who opposed these myopic mandates and stupid policies, but who still have to bear the costs. And kids.

If this is what you supported then don't cry about the results.

Y'all had NO time for those of us who opposed shutdowns and mandates.
Majority of the people I see complaining about the 'cost of living crisis' are those who helped to create it.

Still begging for MORE governmental intervention. Haven't learned a thing.

So many of us warned about this in 2020 and 2021 and received extreme scorn.

If she said she was a man, they would be celebrating her, calling her 'brave', and viciously attacking anybody who 'misgenders' her. Like this.

So why can't she identify as black? Her skin colour is similar to mine.

She is transracial. Don't be transphobic.
'Race' is MORE of a social construct than gender is. It's determined more arbitrarily and exists on a spectrum.

Therefore, there is no coherent argument supporting transgenderism but opposing transracialism.
