"The War on Humanity Continues"
by Michael Lesher
"A year ago, after a melancholy Halloween that more resembled a funeral than a holiday, I published an article I called “A War against Humanity.” I wanted to explore not so much the dramatic statistics that can readily claim readers’ attention but the more insidious ways in which the COVID coup has infected our inner lives.
I wrote: “I cannot get used to the subtle encroachment of fear into every aspect of our collective existence. I cannot accept the slow poisoning of all the interactions between one human being and another by the relentless tide of COVID19 propaganda.” Alas, very little has changed since then. In fact, the subtle markers of the propaganda-inflicted damage remain so much in place that I cannot do better than to republish what I wrote last year. And so the original “A War against Humanity” appears below, with the kind support of the Brownstone editors.
Here, I will only mention a few things that have actually deepened my worries since the piece was originally published.
Remember all the obstructions suddenly thrown up between human beings in early 2020 – plastic barriers, masks and “social distancing” measures – to erode the communal solidarity that is the presupposition of democracy? I noted in the article that those barriers seemed to be here to stay. And it looks as though I was right. Anthony Fauci’s yelping about the “profound risk” allegedly posed by monkeypox, a “rare” disease that even the usual suspects admit is “difficult to spread,” is depressing evidence that social atomization is still a high priority for the folks who brought us illegal mass quarantines and muzzling mandates.
The same is true of those mysterious shortages the press still blames on an unspecified “supply-chain crisis.” Recently, authorities in several states started a deluge of strongly-worded warnings about an insect called the Spotted Lanternfly, which, we were told, “is a threat to many fruit crops.” The official literature has been conspicuously silent about any damage to crops actually caused or even threatened by the colorful bugs – and just as silent about any plan to control them – but the fear porn is clearly having an impact on my neighbors. “Our food supply is going to be decimated” by the insects, I heard one say recently. I take this to mean that food shortages are likely to get worse in the immediate future – and the fact that the ruling class is throwing itself a cover story for this is an ominous sign.
A year ago, I lamented in particular the damage COVID policy was inflicting on the world’s children. That damage is now officially conceded in mainstream media, though still without a hint of apology for its reckless support of the measures that did the most harm. Even the staid Economist admits that the school shutdowns demanded by the COVID fanatics were responsible for a “global disaster” in children’s education, including rocketing illiteracy rates. And things are no better closer to home: the New York Times reported in September that school closures and lockdown policies “erased two decades of progress in math and reading” for 9-year-old schoolchildren, according to a testing program known as the National Assessment of Educational Progress.
“The setbacks could have powerful consequences for a generation of children who must move beyond basics in elementary school to thrive later on,” the Times confessed. If only the editors had been willing to say it when speaking up might have made a difference…
And what about those experimental COVID drugs? Well, with the news media firmly in tow, political bosses don’t seem to be worried about trampling on the Nuremberg Code. The public school system of the District of Columbia now requires that “all students 12 and up be vaccinated against COVID-19” – with the result that as many as 40 percent of the city’s black teens will be barred from attending school. And the city’s mayor has made it clear that if these kids decline to be injected with drugs whose safety the government specifically refuses to ensure, the city may take punitive action against both the children and their parents.
Nor have things improved for adults. According to September’s Census Bureau figures, “3.8 million…renters say they’re somewhat or very likely to be evicted in the next two months.” Meanwhile, workers in healthcare facilities that receive federal funds are being forced to choose between their livelihoods and submitting to untested drugs.
And if you were hoping for some relief in that quarter from the “conservative” Supreme Court, recent developments have been equally ominous: earlier this month, the High Court “turned away an appeal…after a lower court declined to immediately consider…claims that the vaccine rule violates federal administrative law and tramples over powers reserved for the states under the U.S. Constitution.” As I wrote a year ago, totalitarianism has gone mainstream. So the war against humanity continues. And will continue – until we stop it."
