The standard defense against any conspiracy theory is it's impossible to keep a secret of any magnitude, or at the highest levels of power, thus conspiracy theories are necessarily false.

In thread below, I will demolish this argument. 1st, by definition, any conspiracy theory under discussion involves events which haven't been successfully hidden. Had they been, discussion would be impossible. Thus, the objection that all conspiracy theories must be false because they allege hidden dynamics makes no sense.

"Ontology" in famous sense used by Heidegger meant addressing the deepest problem of western philosophy, inability to move past metaphysics and think "being." Metaphysics here means something like "truth as correspondence." Correspondence problems dominates our thinking. This activity involves erecting a criterion, and then comparing some object of study to the standard. If it matches, corresponds, we 'find' truth or say something true.

This clip was going around yesterday, so I watched the full panel to see the context of these remarks.

Some interesting stuff but know that the broader discussion is a waste of time. It's 3 guys from multinational corps and a Dutch bureaucrat doing PR for their organizations. Other than this one strange, viral comment, nothing said here is shocking. It's all stuff about reusing perfume bottles, regulating single-use plastics, etc. We've heard it all before.

I found two aspects of this panel worth commenting,

Bio-security state's assault on public life analogous to destruction of medieval commons by early modern state. People are violently displaced, to be herded into more profitable terrain.

In past this was poor-house/factories. Today that terrain is digital. Both then as now, the state's role is to manage this process of transition. From "The Great Transformation" by Polanyi

"A belief in spontaneous progress must make us blind to the role of government in economic life. This role consists often in altering the rate of change..."

A thread about the sacrificial logic of v*ccination Drawing on Rene Girard's "Violence and the Sacred," I will show why comparisons between v*ccination & seat belts, oil changes, etc. are fundamentally inappropriate, and why the liberal-left has become fixated on v*ccination.

A thread about why the 'pandemic' must end on our terms There's chatter about Biden's recent "no federal solution" comment, changes to CDC guidelines, etc. Many see these changes as a positive sign that the 'pandemic' is winding down. From my POV, however, this is a dangerous moment for our cause.

Highly recommend this video. You get a real glimpse the atmosphere in Australia. Pretty horrifying, and one thing in particular stood out to me.

We learn at the end of the video that the woman was forced into the camp as punishment. During a contact tracing 'investigation,' she panics and lies about getting a test. This is b/c she has just returned from another quarantine, and is desperate to avoid going right back

Ironically, the lie gets her sent to a camp as a reprimand, despite testing negative

Imagine if, in order combat heart disease, the US government decided to 'nudge' the population into a diet based on the food pyramid.

Then, when the policy fails to reduce heart disease, it blames the people still eating red meat. This is no more logical than covid policy rn. People might object by saying heart disease isn't contagious. That it's different from respiratory disease, because no one else is victimized.

But this fails is b/c it conflates the absence of contagion w/a general lack of negative externalities.

I've noticed re: my last thread some commenters/quote tweets saying 'centralized conspiracies' are "stupid/ridiculous, etc." Want to clarify that this is not my position.

I don't know what the true operation of global power is. It's beyond my ability to perceive. The point I was masking with regard to centralization vs. decentralization, primarily, is that regardless of the existence of some inner power structure, in the case of Covid, we need to understand the broader cultural and historical forces at work.

A thread exploring the myth of Covid In this thread, I will again draw on Rene Girard to argue that the Covid 'Pandemic' is a modern myth.

This will reveal the strength of the decentralized conspiracy position, and IMO the only way out of this insane moment.

If the unv*ccinated cannot be scapegoated, it is highly likely that politicians & big pharma will end up taking the blame for the failure of Covid interventions.

This would be a huge blow to these institutions. Hence the hysterical rhetoric you see below.

1/13 The problem faced by the regime/capitol is that we live in an almost completely de-mystified era.

This is the historical impact of Christianity, which is magnified further by digitization. No one believes in the guilt of the scapegoat anymore.

In light of the FDA v*ccine approval in children, a thread about Covid hysteria, American schools, and the institutional culture of the liberal-left. I will draw on Ivan Illich in "Deschooling Society" to show a common answer to the following questions:

Given the Southwest strike, a thread about why the remaining un*vaxxed Americans may be our only hope.

1/18 My thinking here is based on Rene Girard's mimetic theory and associated work on the anthropology of sacrifice/scandal.

Unironically the elites do fear everyone lifting weights and sunning their balls, which I will demonstrate in this thread 1/13 The elite agenda atm is openly the "Great Reset," which aims to create new frontiers of financialization and virtualization, alongside ironclad mechanisms of population control through a digital/medical ID system and eventually a kind of bio-digital convergence. 2/13
