The newly-minted, certifiably batshit Biden administration has already made clear its Orwellian intentions. The "ministry of truth" in Ukraine worked so well we're going to have one here too! Our Mirotvorets clone is also going to be stepping up its activities, using the skulls of dissident journalists to practice curb-stomping. Between the full-throated encouragement to go forth and rat out your brother/sister/mother/father for protesting the conditions of their imprisonment, and the population's chilling inability to recognize that the "truth" they're being sold today is the polar opposite of the "truth" they were voluntarily spewing at the top of their tweet-lungs yesterday.

(For those who don't believe they're imprisoned, pack a suitcase and book a flight right now for Paris, or Hanoi, or Moscow. I'll wait.)

I'm seeing literally hundreds of posts talking about how everyone a particular person knows is suffering off-the-charts levels of (non-OMFGVIRUS-related) memory loss, fatigue, general disorientation, etc. I'm not looking for these posts, just stumbling over them on the way to something else. Is this happening to everybody? Are we so terrified of impinging on the malady-space we're told belongs exclusively to the Lesser Saints of the Great OMFGVIRUS? Would you let Bill Gates perform brain surgery on you? Why not? You allow him to make global health policy in by way of the WHO and Gavi - surely you wouldn't mind skipping the middleman and letting good ol' Billy have a go at your gray matter? I mean, what's the worst that could happen?
