UNCLEAR BUT PRESENT DANGER
Part I of IV: Fear – the Nectar of Elites
The Audacity of Fear, not Hope is the Greatest threat to Making the Union Great Again
The Rise of a Nouveau Elite:
Challenging – is an understated testimony to the daunting complexity enveloping the latest viral (disease) pandemic. Assessing strategies to mitigate and interdict the virus’s lethal potential, and formulating a plan to restart the furloughed economy, is critical. Most look to the presumed Elite branch of the human blockchain for information, solutions, and leadership. Although operating under unrelenting stress, Elites initially led with laudable empathy and equanimity. Armed presumably with no more than the art of medicine to guide untested plans-of-action, apprehension induced some Elites to tap into the most disquieting of all human emotions – fear.
Collaboration and heroic patience opened a data portal having the scale and quality necessary for epidemiological assessment of the seventh coronavirus. However, just as there is no amount of tax revenue Congress won’t outspend, there is no pharmacology that medical professionals will endorse without preserving plausible denial. Anecdotal and epidemiological enlightened pathology and treatment regimens have emerged that even the most congenitally skeptical must embrace. This data is also fundamental to informing a prudent economic reset. Importantly, it holds the potential to codify and reveal the truth – the only formulary capable of arresting fear.
The imperative to balance health initiatives and economic interests is not new to the government or the people; the best outcomes have a common virtue – mutually informed consultation amongst all interested parties. The people realize strategic benefit by entrusting certain responsibilities to government – such as coordination of intelligence, resources, and logistics. However, the people have never conceded to government sovereign control of their property, prerogative, or privacy. Many Elites believe expediency alone sanctions confiscation of the people’s sovereign control. The elixir used by Elite Government Sovereigns to self-certify forged entitlement is fear.
Entitlement is neither congenital nor an acquired taste. It is an addictive state of mind that arises from corroborating intellectual and cultural conditioning. This addiction is undeterred by judicial precedence, constitutional or otherwise. It has the wherewithal to transform former servants of the people (e.g. governors, mayors, and subject matter experts) into Czars-for-a-Day. The Elite presume jurisdiction superseding presidential prerogative – on the same basis they disavow the authority of the people. These duly elected Czars-for-a-Day deemed furloughing the economy of lesser risk to well-being than unprecedented unemployment claims and writing huge checks absent any funds on account. Citing urgency, these Elite lifted off remotely absent consultation with the people. The elixir used by Czars-for-a-Day to transact in forged entitlement is fear.
Entitlement sanctioned by silence provides proponents of mass conformity both the basis and means to advance their objectives. Media Masters well understand the power of persistent messaging to foment conformity that gestates organic resistance to countervailing facts and opinions. As a matter of course, entitlement can be self-sanctioned – none more apparent than entertainment award shows. Media Masters are adroit at remodeling messages and acclimating discourse to conform public opinion and perception with the ideology they advocate. Cloaked by first amendment subterfuge, where opinion impersonates fact, they export lethal ideology with impunity. Pandemics and apocalypse lack the impetus to emancipate some ideological prisoners of conformity. The elixir used by Media Masters to xerox forged entitlement is fear.
The most predatory Cabal in history is comprised of but a few companies. This Technology Cabal is adept at covert and clandestine data acquisition, and its transformation into marketable information, intelligence, and influence. The Cabal has fortified its dominance and high margins with supercomputing and ubiquitous communications – enabling its clan to assess, predict, and ultimately shape behavior. The Cabal uses its technical prowess to subvert dissenting voices essential to democratic inquiry and prescriptive oversight. It can render contrarian thoughts, ideas, people, and institutions irredeemable objects of derision. While the Cabal is demonstrably invincible to oversight; it can manufacture artificial conformance on-demand absent forensic artifacts. The elixir used by the Technology Cabal to pickpocket and forge entitlement is fear.
