1/9 Quote, ‘Things which are parts of a single organism may be very different from one another: things which are not, may be very alike.’
2/9 ‘Six pennies are quite separate and very alike: my nose and my lungs are very different but they are only alive at all because they are parts of my body and share its common life.’
3/9 ‘Christianity thinks of human individuals not as mere members of a group or items in a list, but as organs in a body—different from one another and each contributing what no other could.’
4/9 ‘When you find yourself wanting to turn your children, or pupils, or even your neighbours, into people exactly like yourself, remember that God probably never meant them to be that. You and they are different organs, intended to do different things.’
5/9 ‘On the other hand, when you are tempted not to bother about someone else's troubles because they are "no business of yours," remember that though he is different from you he is part of the same organism as you.’
6/9 ‘If you forget that he belongs to the same organism as yourself you will become an Individualist. If you forget that he is a different organ from you, if you want to suppress differences and make people all alike, you will become a Totalitarian.’
7/9 ‘But a Christian must not be either a Totalitarian or an Individualist.
I feel a strong desire to tell you—and I expect you feel a strong desire to tell me—which of these two errors is the worse. That is the devil getting at us.’
8/9 ‘He always sends errors into the world in pairs—pairs of opposites. And he always encourages us to spend a lot of time thinking which is the worse. You see why, of course? He relies on your extra dislike of the one error to draw you gradually into the opposite one.’
9/9 ‘But do not let us be fooled. We have to keep our eyes on the goal and go straight through between both errors. We have no other concern than that with either of them.’

Quoting from 'Mere Christianity' by C S Lewis (first published in 1952)

1. "The Covid19 “vaccines” don’t work. They’ve admitted it, and now they’re seriously trying to tell us it’s actually a good thing."
2. "What “working” really means when your pandemic is nothing but wave after wave of meaningless positive tests and weasel-worded changes to the meaning of “cause of death”, is a different discussion for another time."
3. "Indeed, whether they were ever meant to work, what they are actually for and why the establishment needs to push them so hard, are interesting questions for a future article."

Quote, '"ICU is full of the unvaccinated – my patience with them is wearing thin"

This claim is regularly used as an argument for vaccine mandates, and/or unvaxxed-only lockdowns.

But is it true?

In a word, no.'
'ICUs are not “full” of unvaccinated covid patients, they’re not even full of covid cases. In fact, they’re not even full at all.'
'As of last week, NHS England’s own bed statistics reported that England has 4330 available critical care beds, of which 894 (21%) are being used by Covid patients, 2608 (60%) non-Covid patients and 828 (19%) were empty.'

1/4 'WE WILL OBEY NOTHING. You are not our government or our representation. You are neither leaders nor presidents; you are neither ministers nor statesmen. In fact, you are not even men.'
2/4 'You are empty and that is why you will lose. You are puppets of your own shadow and your laws are sterile daughters of sterile governments. We, on the other hand, are the fertile generation that will repopulate history with men and not machines.'
3/4 'We will not do it with grenades or barricades, because otherwise we would be just another version of yourselves. We will do it with the clarity of a silent and constant dissent, without shouting, without showing off.'

1. 'NON OBBEDIREMO A NIENTE. Non siete il nostro governo né la nostra rappresentanza. Non siete né leader né presidenti; non siete ministri, né uomini di stato. In effetti, non siete neanche uomini. Siete vuoti e per questo perderete.'
2. 'Siete burattini della vostra stessa ombra e le vostre leggi sono figlie sterili di governi sterili. Noi, invece, siamo la generazione fertile, che ripopolerà la storia di uomini e non di macchine.'
3. 'Non lo faremo con le spranghe né le barricate, perché altrimenti non saremmo altro che l’ennesima versione di voi stessi. Lo faremo con la lucidità di un dissenso silenzioso e costante, senza gridare, senza metterci in mostra.'

1. Quote, “The “SARS-CoV-2” virus, in turn, is itself believed to be a mutation of ancient coronavirus strains. This assumption arose from the so-called “sequence alignment” which is considered one of the strongest scientific proofs for the existence of SARS-CoV-2.”
2. “Sequence alignment is a bioinformatics technique in which fragments of nucleic acid (DNA) are assembled with a computer into a hypothetical strand of genetic material.”
3. “In order to carry out the alignment, roughly comparable to a jigsaw puzzle, templates in the form of old strands of genetic material are required. In the same way as the picture on the box of a puzzle serves as a template.”

Es gab in Wirklichkeit keine „Corona-Krise“.

Was geschah, war eine lange geplante Manipulation der üblichen Grippesaison, die jedes Jahr leider viele unserer älteren und verletzlichen Menschen tötet.
Die Mainstream-Medien haben Hand in Hand mit Regierungen als Sprachrohr der Propaganda gearbeitet, um Massenangst und Hypnose zu fördern und aufrechtzuerhalten.
Die neuen DNA/mRNA-Jabs werden aktiv an Menschen getestet, Menschen, die diesen neuen Injektionsmitteln vertrauen, nehmen daran teil – wie Meerschweinchen in einer Laborstudie.
