As a friend writes, “Our system is very opaque.” Various thinkers have tried to diagram or schematise the relationships among different branches of western liberal democratic regimes. A popular concept in some circles, and the prototype for many such efforts, is Curtis Yarvin’s Cathedral. What ties together much of this analysis, is the conviction that formal political structures have been increasingly sidelined by informal, illegible and corrupt power networks. We see a growing gulf between how western liberal democracies claim to function, and how they actually behave.

Attempts to model power structures like these are at base arguments about whether regime behaviour is emergent, or centrally directed; whether our governments are simply failing, or pursuing hidden goals; and whether our elites are malicious, or just remarkably stupid, or some unfortunate mixture of both.

Instead of contributing more schemata to the landscape of dissident thought on what is wrong with modern liberal democracy, I’ll take a descriptive approach. It seems to me that not only our pandemic response, but many signature western policies, are distinguished by a curious set of recurring pathologies. Taken together, these suggest important conclusions about how we’re governed.

As I see it, our brave new world is beset by state actions which betray 1) properties of inertia, 2) the absence of strategy, 3) symptoms of profound demobilisation, 4) an obsession with simple metrics, 5) diffuse consensus guidance, 6) transnational uniformity, and 7) media activism.


On the Failure of Conservatives to Mount Effective Opposition to the Most Insane Policies Ever Visited Upon Mankind

Remarks inspired by Manfred Kleine-Hartlage's 'Invective against Conservatives'

Corona is the latest chapter in a long parade of insanity by Western governments.

I was first summoned from inattentive normie sleep in 2015, when Angela Merkel opened the German borders to mass third-world immigration. It was an intensely strange moment. Weeks upon weeks of clearly manufactured media hysteria culminated in people of all political persuasions donating money and clothes to notional Syrian refugees and joining welcome parties at train stations. There they encountered primarily fighting-age men from across the Middle East and Africa, a far cry from the crowds of Syrian women and children and “doctors” that the media had promised. These refugees, supported by taxpayers and unleashed upon the indigenous population of Europe, behaved after the pattern of invaders across history. The press and government officials studiously hid the details of their conduct until the mass sexual assaults perpetrated at Cologne on Silvesternacht 2015/16 overwhelmed even the propaganda capacities of German state media.

By the end of 2016, an astounding 1.3 million migrants had entered the Federal Republic of Germany – a massive incursion overseen not by a leftist government, but by the nominally conservative Christian Democrats. It was also the CDU, under Merkel’s leadership, who developed the genius plan to phase out nuclear energy and close our coal-fired power plants at the same time, and who masterminded some of the harshest and most destructive Corona containment measures in all of Europe. You elect allegedly prudent, far-sighted centrist conservatives, you get mass immigration, deindustrialisation, and nationwide hygiene house arrests. – How does that happen?


Rob them of their problems, or you’ll get their solutions

During the vaccine roll-out, a curious thing happened to establishment messaging. What had been a unified front demanding the harshest non-pharmaceutical interventions politicians would tolerate, devolved into two factions. Some figures, particularly those adjacent to Zero-Covid, began entertaining a mild degree of vaccine scepticism, and claiming that an indefinite regime of lockdowns and masking remained the best way forward. The vaccinators, meanwhile, insisted the vaccines represented our only path back to ordinary life and our prior freedoms. In those early months, if you started noticing that all was not well with the vaccination campaign, you ended up drawing fire from people who said you were just playing into the hands of the lockdowners.

Now, Team Lockdown has been totally routed, and Team Vaccine remains ascendant, but this essential dynamic is still worth pondering. It arises from accepting a deeper, unexamined premise, namely that Corona is a problem to solve.

One of the most important things we can do, to keep the vaccinators and the lockdowners and all the rest of these turbulent malevolent lunatics at bay, is to undermine this premise wherever possible. This is why I like to insist, periodically, that eugyppius.com/p/sars-2-is-not-special">SARS-2 just isn’t that special.

I know some of you have had a hard time with Corona; I was pretty sick myself. I know now few people have suffered lasting injuries. I’m not proposing to deny the truth or to downplay clear risks, but I am arguing that we must insist that Corona is a seasonal respiratory virus that behaves like a lot of other seasonal respiratory viruses. We must avoid giving in to the past two years of risk amplification and decontextualised studies, that present negative Corona outcomes in isolation from the risks posed by many other pathogens. If there is Long Covid, there is also Long Influenza; mutations and variant strains are common throughout the world of viruses; SARS-2 is no more deadly than past pandemic flus; the common-cold coronavirus NL63 also uses the ACE2 receptor.


Ukraine and the Global American Empire

Preliminary plans for Operation Barbarossa, with
the southern arm of the German attack proceeding
through the open plains of Ukraine.

Some have asked for my thoughts on Ukraine.

Since 2014, the Ukraine has been experiencing a quiet civil war, between the Ukrainian majority in the west, and a Russian minority concentrated in the east. The Ukrainian side in this conflicted has been co-opted by the supranational global imperial monolith. This is the cadre of western elites that determines political, medical and cultural orthodoxy across the whole world. They control not only all major political parties in most western countries, but also global international consortia from the United Nations to the World Economic Forum to the European Union to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. Their goal is to further squeeze Russia by turning Ukraine – including the Russian-speaking eastern regions – into another political constituent of American globalism.

To the Russians – many Russians – this is unacceptable. After the Soviet Union collapsed, the globalists descended upon Russia to rape and pillage.

In the years after 2000, NATO expansion was used to hem in Russia along the Baltic. These were hard years, but Russia finally reasserted its sovereignty. Since then, the western globalists have considered unaligned Russia to be their enemy, and they have adopted Ukraine as a convenient proxy against her. Ukraine is useful for this purpose, because it has considerable strategic significance, whether as a gateway to Russia through the open Ukrainian plains, or as a staging ground for American missiles.


The Pandemicists Must Be Stopped

The Pandemicists at Work: This strange and mildly disturbing illustration actually accompanies
the article, one of many cases where the New York Times betray the sinister undertones of their
agenda via accompanying imagery.

Corona has vastly expanded the ranks of pandemic planners and public health botherers. Unless something is done, these people will destroy all of society in their radical pursuit of a few viruses.

Just a few words on “Omicron is a Dress Rehearsal for the Next Pandemic”, a New York Times article by Emily Anthes, a science journalist with ties to the World Economic Forum. It’s subtitled “America’s response to the variant highlights both how much progress we have made over the past two years — and how much work remains,” and it’s every inch as awful as you’d imagine.

In the piece, Anthes laments that the United States is “woefully unprepared for the challenges ahead, starting with the most fundamental of tasks: detecting the virus.” She quotes a microbiologist to complain that “We had a delay of one to two months before we were even able to identify the presence of [Omicron] … And by that time, it had already circulated widely between multiple states and from coast to coast.” She wastes many words on the necessity of “Testing, testing, testing”; here, apparently, America still needs vastly more capacity. She and her many scientist informants also want more gene sequencing to detect variants sooner. She’s sure that all of this is absolutely necessary, even though she doesn’t know why:
