Racism, sexism and homophobia are at an all time low.

It's just that we have the internet now, so you can see the thoughts and actions of billions of people,
all over the world. And react. And see reactions.

An illusion is created where 0.1% of people end up looking like 20%
Also, many people actively seek out content that will anger or upset them. Especially if it confirms their pre-existing beliefs.

Nobody is 100% immune to this. But it's a cognitive error to assume it's representative of the norm.

It's an exception. That's why you noticed it.
A double edged sword of the internet is you can find examples (often with video) of every ill, to paint whatever narrative you want... And use as evidence.

It's not hard to do when you have access to billions of tweets, articles, and videos, dating back decades sometimes.
This is also why it's so easy for narratives like 'all cops are bad' to become embedded.

You can literally watch thousands of videos of police abusing their power, all over the country and world.

Vast majority of cops are decent. But decent isn't news or viral worthy.
Today, I'm seeing a lot of 'England fans are racist' and 'the UK is racist' posts...

Again, this is judging dozens of millions of people off the actions and words of <1%

It's right to call it out. But it's wrong to assume this is the norm and representative.

I wasn't joking when I said this. It's convenient that people have magically forgotten how this whole debacle started...

The West is so cucked now they'd rather blame their own citizens.
People here were more concerned about someone saying 'Chinese virus' than the fact the CCP government let this thing spread across the entire world, lied about it, shifted blame, then had their whole country back to normal in months. By magic.


That's some Sun Tzu stuff.
Nobody even asks how China got back to normal so quickly. Prior to any vaccines being available in other countries.

And our 'journalists' don't ask these basic, obvious questions.

What a joke. 😂

The last 18 months have split populations along personality traits.

People higher in neuroticism & agreeableness favour lockdowns, mask mandates & mass vaccination.

People lower in neuroticism & agreeableness do not.

Also explains why it's largely split along political lines.
It has little to do with IQ, 'following science', or 'wanting to kill grandma'.

It reveals how different personality types respond to perceived threats.

Same pattern in every country...

It's why you can predict other traits off something as simple as attitude towards masks.
Agreeable people tend to 'go along to get along' and are less questioning of authority.

Disagreeable people are the opposite.

Neurotic people are more anxious and prone to fear and worry.

Low neuroticism people are the opposite.

It all makes sense through this lens.

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.

I just want to remind everyone that if you'd all said 'no' to the lockdowns and mask mandates (like I suggested over a year ago), then all of this nonsense would have ended by last summer.

And no, everybody wouldn't have died...

The totalitarian litmus test was failed.
And virtually nobody wants to acknowledge those of us who warned EARLY about how this would inevitably lead to rolling lockdowns, incoherent restrictions, and the normalisation of governmental overreach.

People always like learning the hard way.

Wish I'd been wrong.
Now, we have politicians, media pundits, and public 'health experts' all over the world who are drunk off their own power and don't want to relinquish it. They love the control. And they've become richer in many cases.

But now you know.

'Conspiracy theorists' vindicated.

Nobody talks about the fact that tons of black and brown people are the descendants of slave holders.

And there are white people who are the descendants of slaves.

Some people will even be descendants of both.

Throws a bit of spanner into the simplified narrative.
Ultimately, nobody should be held responsible for the sins (or accomplishments) of their ancestors...

If it wasn't you, it wasn't you.

But it's funny how this is completely overlooked.
When people think of slavery, they tend to only think about the USA.

But it was so much more pervasive than that.

Logically, there are probably more black people whose ancestors held slaves, than there are white people whose ancestors did.

What if the c0vid 'protection' measures actually increased the spread and the death rates?

It's entirely possible.
Forcing millions of people indoors for a virus that spreads... indoors.

Telling people to avoid going outside (vit D + exercise boost immunity)

Weight gain from being sedentary, junk food, closed gyms.

Putting sick people in nursing homes.

Wearing filthy masks all day.

Also, some people in hospitals were killed by ventilators early on.

Not to mention the large-scale suppression of effective treatments... 👀
