Re: Just had enough

One answer would be to ensure personal rights for all and to ensure every individual accesses the conditions required to develop autonomously and enter a self-realising relation to being a person, that is, to experience sources of person-hood rooted in a liberty that is legally protected and inalie...

Re: ..and its official. June 21 isnt happening.

I can think of only one rational response. Encourage absolutely everybody (not just people who read this forum, but everybody in the country) to ignore the rules from 21 June: Never wear a mask Never check in to a venue If a nightclub does open near you, support them - go there and have a good time...

Re: Can we harness wokeness to generate anti-lockdown sentiment?

Ask the black police officers they scream racial abuse at during protests/riots. Ask the black conservatives they hound. They'll deride the right as anti-science while wearing ineffective masks and supporting lockdown without evidence of us. They'll ban plastic straws and mandate plastic-microfibre...

Re: Can we harness wokeness to generate anti-lockdown sentiment?

Their goodwill has been harnessed and commodified by opportunists and oppressors that makes my for one head er spin. If the young people are pulling down statues of Slave Owners, Presidents with mixed records, and Gynaecologists who experimented on colonised people of color, [the latter who had Sur...

Re: Can we harness wokeness to generate anti-lockdown sentiment?

Wokeness is about not being safe and needing to live in a bubble of (perceived) safety in order to not be hurt or exposed to the many things in life that we least prefer to accept exist, and sometimes even the things we actually do prefer exist. Things have to change because the world we lived in b...

Re: Can we harness wokeness to generate anti-lockdown sentiment?

I'm not sure where you get your impressions from but I find your characterisation of young people fairly disgusting. I got this impression from the hysterical tantrum that hundreds of thousands of young people threw on the streets last summer. You know, attacking police officers, tearing down statu...

Re: I thought vaccines would allow life to go back to normal.

Somedays I don't want to live anymore. I feel like we are being lied too now . Does anyone feel this way too? Yes, but the hatred gets me out of bed every morning. Like everyone, I've experienced periods of profound despondency. A resigned acceptance of the new - and interminable - normal. I'm fort...

Re: Can we harness wokeness to generate anti-lockdown sentiment?

In short, the racism aspect - albeit tangential/coincidental rather than planned - carries no weight because backing LD is a tribal identity not a matter or political conviction or of logic. You might persuade a few people but you'll never persuade leftists on a large scale because leftists tend to...

Can we harness wokeness to generate anti-lockdown sentiment?

Like most people on this forum, I harbour a seething contempt for the masked ovine masses and their passivity in the face of health fascism. Ours is a post-democratic society: the elected have ceded power to the unelected. One fascinating parallel development since the outset of this dystopia has be...

Re: What are we witnessing?

Thanks for the answers. Let's hope the vaccines outperform expectations next winter. Otherwise, Johnson won't hesitate to order another lockdown. It does make me wonder how zero-Covid countries like Scotland and New Zealand, and quasi- zero-Covid countries like England, can ever hope to prevent thei...
