Well, 2021 hadn’t even died its well-deserved death before the CDC basically created a whole new class of the
unvaxxed insufficiently vaxxed.
I wonder how many of the previously “fully vaxxed” will now be fed up enough to join the resistance? (I’m thinking of you, Neighbor J and Furrydoc.)
In any case, totalitarianism marches on, this time on the excuse of a disease that’s generally been described as a bad cold.
Does anybody doubt that 2022 — if it doesn’t bring more outright and serious rebellion from We the People — will bring us vaccine passports and harsher restrictions on where we filthy, dirty, verminous unvaxxed are “allowed” to go or do?
Our freedom to do such things as buy groceries, fuel our vehicles, travel by air, and speak (relatively, well somewhat, or at least occasionally) freely is beginning to annoy Our August Betters and they have already made noises about finding ways to stop us.
If Omicron alone doesn’t bring Mr. Biden’s hoped-for “winter of death,” then slowly starving us may be the next-best alternative.
I’ve got a question for you. Theoretical at this point. But first here are two memes for inspiration:
The question: What will you do — or what do you think you and your neighbors should do — if the unvaxxed, or the previously “fully vaxxed” but now insufficiently boostered, are forbidden to access basic life needs? I’m thinking groceries especially.
This came up in conversation with a friend and fellow Outlaw the other day. And we, who are usually pretty much in harmony, had quite different takes on the subject.
Me: Fully vaxxed and boostered friends or black marketeers will make food runs for us and we’ll continue to quietly refuse to bow to Faucism no matter what pressures are brought to bear.
Him: (Quoting something he’d read online) “If I can’t buy groceries, then nobody’s gonna buy groceries.” Elaborating: Saboteurs and monkeywrenchers will track those who take advantage of their government-granted “privilege” of buying food. Those whose vehicles are spotted in grocery store parking lots will find their tires slashed, their gas tanks drained, or be otherwise marked as collaborators. It will be made painful and scary for them. If some of us are forbidden to buy groceries, then we’ll make it dangerous for any of us to buy groceries. Such was my friend’s take.
Me: Wow, that’s pretty harsh. That’s attacking both the innocent — those who simply want to eat — and the helpful. Some of those “privileged” people might be buying for their friends, neighbors, and relatives. I know people who would do that, either out of the goodness of their hearts or to make a small profit while still doing good. Why attack them?
We went back and forth, coming to no particular conclusions, but talking about such theoretical possibilities as Outlaws or black marketeers hijacking grocery distribution trucks, taking over food stores, or using non-lethal methods of preventing anyone from accessing stores (e.g. setting off stink bombs).
Sure, cutting off the unvaxxed and insufficiently boostered from food sources may never happen. In some ways it seems unlikely — a bridge too far, too reminiscent of Stalin’s genocide of the Kulaks. But then, nearly everything that’s been imposed on us in the last two years in the name of COVID would have seemed wildly unlikely as recently as 2019.
So we can discount no possibilities. We’re dealing with people who gloat at the prospect of our deaths, who want the world depopulated (looking at you Bill and Klaus), and who increasingly brook no resistance from We the Peasants. These are also people who believe they can do anything they want without ever facing consequences.
So even if you and your neighbors can produce most of your own food, or even if you’ve got a year or more of stocks in your pantry, what do you think you and your neighbors would or should do in a situation where diktats aim to prevent your fellow humans from feeding themselves and their families?
