Why do people fear sickness
but not poverty or starvation?
Because the media doesn't talk
about the latter.
Why media cartels need to be broken up.
It is amazing how easily people slid down the Maslow pyramid.
Freedom, dignity, even prosperity are not needed. People are ready to die of hunger, as long as they don't get sick with the Covid.
Fear has a completely interior, animal character.
In fact, this fear is even stronger than the fear of death, since death from starvation seems preferable to infection with Covid (which leads to death in a small minority of cases).
And why? Because death from starvation, like death from other diseases, is not in the media. Therefore, it does not exist. The specifics of the information age of society: that which is not in the media does not exist.
And, inversely, there is only what is in the media.
And it turns out to be a paradox: modern media technologies manipulate the ancient basic instinct - the fear of death.
Moreover, at such a level that the instinct of self-preservation is suppressed.
Why is the instinct of self-preservation suppressed? Because, having agreed to sacrifice freedom, dignity and the right to life (because one cannot live without yum-yum), mankind got on a train with a one-way ticket to hell.
For each person, the train's speed and number of stops at stations along the way can vary, but the final destination is clear.
At one time, Winston Churchill said: "Choosing between dishonor and war, we chose dishonor. In the end, we got both."
So here we have the same thing: we chose a complete waiver of rights in exchange for protection from the Covid.
Covid is not going anywhere.
But we have no more rights and never will.
Because now, in order to get the rights back, they need to be won.
It will be a long and hard war.
But not for those people who have drained all their rights at the click of a finger.
