The Normalization of The New Normal Reich

I know, you’re probably sick and tired of hearing about the Rise of the New Normal Reich. You want it to be over. So do I. It isn’t over … not by a long shot. It might seem like it’s over where you are. I imagine it does if you live in Florida, or in Texas, or the UK, or Sweden, or Croatia, or in some other country or state in which the majority of the “Covid restrictions” have been lifted, or perhaps were never introduced in the first place. If that’s the case, I’m happy for you.

I happen to live in New Normal Germany, the current tip of the New Normal spear, or one of the tips of one of its spears (or mRNA-laced hypodermic needles), the others being countries and states like Canada, China, Australia, New York, California, and assorted other hotbeds of New Normalism. If you live in one of these New Normal strongholds, as I do, you are acutely aware of how it is not over.

Yes, the Covidian Cult is kaput. The spell has been broken. Only the most insanely fanatical New Normal cultists continue to walk around in public in their plague masks and homemade hazmat suits. But the New Normal Reich is not kaput. The New Normal Reich is being … well, normalized. The masses are being systematically conditioned to accept the biosecurity police state that the global-capitalist ruling classes have been implementing for the last three years. Despite the now irrefutable evidence that the “vaccines” do not prevent transmission of the virus, “the Unvaccinated” are still being segregated, banned from working, attending school, competing in major sporting events, and so on. People are still being forced to wear masks — the symbol of the New Normal Reich — on planes, trains, public transport, in doctors offices, hospitals, et cetera. Here, there, and everywhere, New Normal symbols and social rituals are being permanently integrated into everyday life.

These symbols and rituals are more than just the window dressing of the New Normal Reich. They are how our new “reality” is being created and maintained. The masses are like actors being forced to emotionally invest in the “reality” of an absurdist stage play. The more they repeat the performance, the more convincing the fictional “reality” becomes, regardless of how patently absurd it is … and it is becoming more and more absurd.

For example, at the airports in New Normal Canada, citizens attempting to enter their own country without the so-called “ArriveCAN” app on their smartphones to provide proof of their “vaccination status” (including octogenarians who do not own smartphones) are subjected to extended absurdist harassment by imbecilic New Normal clowns in red vests. Here in New Normal Germany, the government is preparing to force everyone to wear medical-looking masks in public every Autumn and Winter, not just on account of the “Apocalyptic Plague” but also on account of the normal Winter flu. The pretext doesn’t really matter anymore. The point is the display of ideological uniformity.

Meanwhile, Germany’s Federal Ministry of Health was forced to publish a limited hangout regarding “vaccination” injuries and deaths. They did it classic Goebbelsian fashion.

Apparently, they didn’t like the actual data on the number of serious adverse effects, so they decided to just lie about them on Twitter. (Serious adverse effects were reported in roughly 1 in 5,000 doses, not 1 in 5,000 “vaccinated” people. Approximately 184,000,000 doses have been administered to people in Germany and … well, you can do the math.) Naturally, the Twitter Corporation has been slapping its fake “misleading” warning on retweets pointing out the Ministry of Health’s lie, because the truth is whatever the Corporatocracy says it is, and everything else is “disinformation.”

If you think I’m being harsh or hyperbolic in characterizing the Ministry’s lie as a lie, keep in mind that the German Minister of Health, Karl Lauterbach, has been lying, repeatedly, to the German public for over two years now. Here he is lying about the “side-effects-free vaccines” in August 2021, right around the time he ordered the segregation of “the Unvaccinated” and fomented hatred of anyone who refused to conform to New Normal ideology …

And now, tens of thousands of people in Germany — at minimum, as vaccine adverse-effects have always been significantly under-reported — have been seriously injured or … you know, killed, because Karl and his fascistic New Normal cronies lied to everyone, over and over, and the German media repeated those lies, and the New Normal masses repeated those lies, and the government and global corporations censored, deplatformed, and demonized those of us who challenged those lies as “far-right extremists,” “science deniers,” “anti-vaxxers,” and so on.

And these are just a few recent examples. I don’t think I need to provide an exhaustive list. At this point, you are either well aware and capable of facing what’s happening, or you’re not, in which case you are telling yourself whatever you need to tell yourself in order to pretend that what is happening isn’t happening.

If that is what you’re doing, I cannot help you. Nothing I write or say will get through to you. Facts will not make any difference to you. Government and health officials and media talking heads will lie to your face, over and over, and get caught lying, and you will go on adamantly repeating their lies, not because you do not understand that they are lies, but because you do not care that they are lies. You do not care that you are killing and injuring countless people with your officially-approved lies, with your cowardice, with your mindless obedience. Your goal is to remain within the bounds of “normality,” and not get called a lot of names and get ostracized from your social circle, and if a lot of people have to die and you have to abandon any semblance of integrity and intellectual honesty to achieve that, so be it.

As for the rest of us, those who are aware of what’s happening and are doing our best to face what’s happening, even if we don’t understand what’s happening, or disagree about why it’s happening, I wish I had something clever to offer in terms of how to make it stop happening.

I don’t, other than what I’ve been advocating, i.e., organized, non-violent civil disobedience, like what the Canadian truckers did in Ottawa, like what the Dutch farmers are doing in The Netherlands. Columns like this, social media memes, sporadic Sunday mass demonstrations, and individual acts of non-compliance are not going to stop the New Normal juggernaut. The normalization of the New Normal will continue, the pathologization of society will continue, the destabilization and restructuring of the global economy will continue, unless something truly historic happens and the workers of the world unite (or if the sovereign individuals of the world unite if “workers” sounds too Commie to you) and jam a monkey wrench into the New Normal machinery.

The chances of that happening are slim. In my 60 years of corporeal existence, I have never experienced a time when people were this alienated, hopeless, and at each other’s throats. I can’t recall a time when people were this humorless, sanctimonious, and vicious … and I am talking about the people who could make a difference, not the order-following New Normal masses. If there was ever a time when the working classes needed to set aside their political differences and flex their collective muscles, this is it, but most of us are too busy pissing on each other to score cheap points on Twitter, or Gettr, or Telegram, or, you know, wherever.

I’m sorry to end on such a pessimistic note … I’m recovering from the Apocalyptic Plague, so perhaps I’m just feeling overly gloomy. Probably everything will be just fine, and people will eventually come to their senses, and the global-capitalist ruling classes will cancel the whole New Normal thing, and no one needs to organize any kind of international non-violent civil-disobedience campaign, and, one day, we’ll wake up and check our phones and discover that there was no New Normal Reich, and that no one ever died because of a vaccine, and we will check our social credit status, and tell our smart-kitchens to start cooking our crickets, and pull up the War-of-the-Day on our ViewScreens so we can root for whoever we were told to root for … and everything will finally be “normal” again.

    1. It took Eric Clapton 2 shots before he woke up. It takes 3 for a few many others. Of course they can’t sue the drug companies nor the governments, as both will exclaim “we did our best to quickly help!”

    _______________________________________________

    As a cynical non-Normal who saw through the Famous Original Megadeath Virus of Doom Scamdemic within a few weeks of its March, 2020 launch, I applaud– OK, jazz-hands or “twinkle”– your grimly accurate assessment and prognostication.

    There is an element of contradiction in the bit I quoted, which I’m sure you and other readers acknowledge. When I read the first sentence, I immediately thought about my personal experience. FWIW, since retiring several years ago I’d drifted into an increasingly non-social, solitary existence; the scamdemic measures, especially the ones affecting public transit (since I don’t drive), were particularly pernicious to my already moribund social life.

    I admit my anecdotal bias: my observations are based on frequent trips to the shopping center a couple of blocks away in my suburban Philadelphia (PA) neighborhood, plus a few trips into town using public transit once the mandatory mask diktat was eliminated– er, indefinitely suspended.

    I still see lots of masked people in the shopping center and on public transit, even this week during a heatwave with temperatures in the 90° range (pardon my Fahrenheit!). True, many are elderly people who plod along with masks drooping down over their lower lips and chins.

    There are also masked infants and toddlers; even though I’m childless and not particularly sentimental about children, the sight of these masked innocents always triggers a sour frisson of mingled righteous outrage and despair. If there’s a German compound word for this blend of emotions, please share.

    Anyway, I don’t think these nominal but persistent mask-wearers, or mask half-wearers, are “the most insanely fanatical New Normal cultists”. (BTW, I’ve chosen the term “New Abnormal”, but it means the same thing.) And I’m confident that you agree. Rather, I see them as thralls or victims of the normalization mentioned in the second quoted sentence.

    Dementia has never been more popular, it seems, but I’m certain that if I approached one of those elderly mask half-wearers and asked them what the hell they think they’re doing (in a more polite way), they wouldn’t have a thoughtful, sophisticated response. If pressed, they would probably concede that keeping their masks on the facial down-low defeats their ostensible purpose. Assuming they could come up with a rationalization at all, it would probably be something like, “Well, it’s better than nothing.”

    In the years before the turn of the century, I worked in an “inner-city” state unemployment office– now long-shuttered. In the bad old days when the local public had to report to the office to claim benefits, staff got an ongoing glimpse into new fads in dress and accoutrements. On one occasion, hideously ugly oversized earrings became all the rage.

    I sat behind a fellow claims examiner named Roz, a worldly-wise and earthy military veteran. One afternoon, I spluttered, “Roz, what’s up with these ugly door-knocker earrings? How did they ever become popular?”

    Roz swiveled her chair to face me, and said in her mild, motherly tone, “It’s the fashion, baby!” For some reason, this stuck in my mind.

    If I were able to interrogate the plagued-masked elderly and the conscientious child-masking parents or caregivers at the shopping center about why they were still wearing those damned muzzles (in a more polite way), I believe that their reply would not be a fanatical cry of “Death to COVID!”; it would be more of a mildly puzzled, “Why, it’s the fashion, baby!” 😟

  2. Console yourself C.J. Things could be better. This is true.
    Tune into The Decline Of The West. Things are grim for the poor Ukrainians, sacrificed to Washington interests, as is Germany and Western Europe. The writing IS on The Wall.

    How much does the US import from the EU?. Half a trillion per year, mostly from Germany. But Washington is destroying Germany’s manufacturing base. Who will fund the EU, to avoid riots by those facing higher fuel and food costs?

    I discuss the underground market for weapons spilling out of The Ukraine. Terrorist actions with automatic weapons is so last year. This year it’s Javelin Missiles. Take down an entire office block. Too easy.

  3. None of this surprises this American in the least.

    In so many ways, 2022 Berlin seems constitutionally antagonistic to American liberties and structures. Its fragile trading block, the EU, was always intended to be a foil to the American global juggernaut. For a review of its anti-American foundations, simply revisit its founding rhetoric from the late eighties through the early ‘oughts.

    It is unfortunate that the EU’s builders chose to pound their pilings into a shifting swamp of Anti-American media pabulum.

    To take the bilious founding polemics of 1989-2001 at face value, you’d think that Germany’s nascent EU (called the E.C. at that time, IIRC) stood as the noble counter to every vulgar notion held across the Atlantic. To achieve this oppositional propaganda end, paid media at that time libeled everything from our criminal justice system and our 2nd Amendment, to our constitutional constraints on centralized government (pretty much every obstacle to the Democrat Party’s socialist agenda, btw), day-in and day-out on their global ‘news’ platforms.

    Berlin’s policy planners have a long memory, and many never stopped smarting from the moral victory scored by the Allies in the 1940’s. The problems is, observant American citizens have long memories, too.

    Ultimately Germany will need to choke in its ‘childhood’ exhuberances before it can change course. In this, She resembles the adolescent American Left in our own failed cities. This reckoning appears to be at hand.

  4. Today, the most dangerous thing that is happening all over the world is not physical violence but psychological violence.

    Globalists are desperately trying to manipulate you and your family to make you grateful/fearful slaves.

    I have heard the criminal head of the W.E.F has now even started signing his name ‘Anti-Christ, Klaus Schwab’

    Violence has only one meaning: it means nothing other than experiencing happiness in others’ misery.

    So for the new generation, living and defeating this coming world collapse and enslavement dystopia, meditation is a must because only that can protect you from their fascist political agenda – nothing else.

    Meditation is the capacity to be silent, to be awake, to be able to see the truth.

    But nobody it seems is interested in truth; in fact they are all against it, because what will happen to these politicians worshiped all around the world who are constantly lying?

    If truth is known they will all be locked up!

    You are fed with all the politicians lies and propaganda so that you are constantly distracted from your own intelligence towards their idiotic and destructive narratives and actions.

    If you want to be intelligent you cannot be into any politics.

    Politics needs idiots, people who can lie, people who can go on lying, people who are two faced, people who can change their personality any moment.

    People who don’t have any individuality.

    Remember, nobody is born mediocre.

    People are made mediocre by the politicians, by the priests, by the education system.

    You think you go to the school to be made more intelligent – you are wrong.

    You don’t know how to function without these manufactured memories.

    You don’t really know that you have any consciousness separate from your conditioned mind, so you think if your memory is destroyed your consciousness is destroyed?

    Die to the past, be alive to the present, to the moment you are in – it will not destroy your mind.

    Really, it will give a rest to your restless mind.

    Your efficiency will grow, and there will be no effort.

    You have to be free.

    You have to be individual, you have to be on your own.

    It will be fearful in the beginning because you have always lived in the crowd.

    The crowd gives you a certain coziness, warmth.

    You will be in the cold, alone.

    Especially if all the gas is cut off!

    If you are ready to be alone and in the cold, and ready to go in darkness in search of light, meditation is yours.

    Find the witness.

    Only then will you find your true inner voice.

    Your inner voice will direct you.

    Its directions will be absolutely different from what society says – absolutely different.

    It is not a moral code; it is an inner direction.

    A deep reverence comes to you, and through that reverence everything follows.

    You love life so much now that violence becomes impossible.

    Only intelligent people can be religious.

    The idiot cannot realize it while remaining an idiot.

    The mediocre cannot even conceive its possibility while remaining mediocre.

    Only the highest intelligence can reach to that point where religiousness flowers.

    Religiousness is the highest luxury in the world.

    Religiousness needs courage, intelligence, daring, because you are going higher and higher in the world of consciousness.

    The mediocre has no idea that there is anything higher than themselves.

    The only possibility for the mediocre is that they can drop their mediocrity.

    If the mediocre person, the ordinary person, meets a Christ he will not see any difference.

    The ordinary person projects their ordinariness even on the highly intelligent.

    When a man like Christ walks on the earth he will leave footprints on the sands of time, and ordinary people will worship those footprints.

    Christianity is nothing but worship of the footprints, it leads you nowhere.

    Have you thought about it, that in two thousand years nobody has been a Christ again?

    What kind of religion is this?

    Just Christians!

    The first and the last Christ was crucified two thousand years ago, since then nothing has happened, because unless you become a Christ yourself Christianity is just a hypocrisy.

    If you want to be really religious you cannot be a member of any organized religion.

    Christianity was created by the same type of people who crucified Christ – the same type.

    If you are too influenced by the counterfeit, you will miss the real.

    If your eyes become too filled with the counterfeit, when the real encounters you, you may not even be able to recognize it.

    When stillness comes on its own, when silence descends without your effort, when you watch thoughts and a moment comes when thoughts start disappearing and silence starts happening, that is beautiful.

    Then thoughts stop of their own accord if you don’t identify, if you remain a witness.

    With your watching and watching, slowly the rush of thoughts starts getting less and less.

    Moments of silence start appearing.

    A thought comes, and then there is silence before another thought appears.

    These gaps will give you the first glimpse of meditation and the first joy that you are arriving home.

    The moment consciousness comes to its highest peak it does not find any God there.

    It finds immense beauty, immense silence, absolute peace, absolute nothingness.

    Only existence is.

    Existence is not separate from you, even when you think you are separate.

    And when you know that you are not separate, it is a tremendous realization.

    This is enlightenment.
