The Morning After

This is the weirdest part of the PSYOP. It’s like the morning after an office party on which you wake up almost terminally hungover to hazy memories of having performed a Tequila-fuelled blowjob on Bob in Accounting in what was either the 9th Floor Reception Area or possibly the downstairs lobby of your building while someone vaguely resembling that smirking kid in the Mail Room filmed it on his phone.

Yes, it’s the Morning After … that revolting regurgitant chorus you’re hearing is the sound of millions of Covidian Cultists down on their knees in their gender-neutral bathrooms praying to the Porcelain God.

It has been quite a trip these last two and a half years, but the orgy of fear and hatred is over, the mass hysteria is wearing off, and the reality of the damage they have done is beginning to become undeniable.

Countless thousands of people have been killed, seriously injured, and permanently disabled, victims of experimental “vaccines” they did not need but were coerced into taking. Societies have been torn apart, economies crippled, institutions discredited, democratic precepts like the rule of law and constitutional rights made mockeries of themselves, friends and families turned against each other, and so on, and the dust hasn’t even settled yet. It will take many years to assess the damage … or, rather, to recontextualize, rationalize, deny, and memory-hole the damage (while simultaneously “normalizing” the fascistic biosecurity dystopia the damage made it possible to implement).

This process is now well underway. As I’m sure you’ve noticed over the past several months, governments, global health authorities, the corporate and state media, the culture industry, and other key components of “The New Normal Reich” have been quietly phasing out their “Covid restrictions,” rewriting “The Science,” rewriting history (i.e., the science and history they had previously rewritten), executing limited hangouts, and otherwise transitioning the masses out of “emergency” mode and into the New Normal.

In other words, everything is going to plan.

You can’t keep people whipped up into a state of full-blown hysteria indefinitely. When you’re radically destabilizing and restructuring a society, you hit them hard with the Shock-and-Awe for a few weeks, or months (or years in this case), and then you gently ease them into the new “reality.” Which, after being systematically terrorized, gaslighted, threatened, and otherwise tormented for however long you did that to them, they’ll be grateful for anything resembling “normality,” no matter how fascistic it turns out to be.

You have to be delicate executing this phase, in which the vast majority of the masses, having forced themselves to believe whatever you needed them to believe during the Shock-and-Awe phase, have to force themselves to believe they never believed whatever you needed them to believe then, and believe whatever you need them to believe now, which typically completely contradicts whatever they had previously forced themselves to believe (and actually, literally, believed) in a desperate attempt to keep you happy, so that maybe you would eventually stop beating on them, and relentlessly gaslighting and terrorizing them.

Now, a lot people seem to be having trouble understanding or accepting this fact, i.e., the fact that human beings are capable of forcing themselves to believe whatever they need to believe in order to survive or remain in good standing with “normal” society (or whatever social body they are members of and depend on to meet their basic needs). Not pretend to believe, literally believe, the way that religious converts believe, the way we believe whatever we believe today that we didn’t believe ten years ago.

I must say, I find it rather baffling, people’s lack of understanding and acceptance of this fact, as this capability is a fundamental human attribute that has been documented, over and over, throughout the course of human history. It is not some “theory” I just made up. It is how we maintain social cohesion. It is how we socialize our children. It is how armies and university departments work. It is basic part of how social bodies function; conformity is rewarded and non-conformity is punished. There’s nothing new about this phenomenon. People have been conforming to new official “realities” and making themselves believe whatever they have to believe to survive within them for approximately five thousand years.

It is, however, a rare occasion when we are able to observe the process this clearly. It usually takes place more or less invisibly within the context of normal everyday life. It is only during sudden radical shifts from one “reality” to another “reality” that we can watch people force themselves to believe whatever they perceive they need to believe, or are instructed by their rulers to believe, in order to survive and thrive in society (e.g., cult indoctrinations, religious conversions, the outbreak of war, physical torture, or in the wake of political revolutions).

This is what we’ve been watching since March 2020, not mass hypnosis, or mass formation psychosis, but the masses forcing themselves to believe whatever they sensed they needed to believe (or were instructed by the authorities to believe) in order to remain parts of “normal” society and not be demonized by their governments and the media, ostracized by their friends and family, fired from their jobs, segregated, censored, beaten and arrested by the police, and otherwise punished for non-conformity as a new “reality” was manufactured and imposed on societies throughout the world.

And now their “reality” is changing again, or “The Science is evolving,” or whatever, and the absurdities they forced themselves to believe are being exposed as … well, as absurdities, and their fanatical and often fascistic behavior, as it turns out, was based on absolutely nothing.

Many of them couldn’t care less, as their behavior was never “based” on anything other than going along with the herd, and so they have simply transitioned from fanatically hating “the Unvaccinated” to fanatically hating “the Russians,” and fanatically supporting Ukrainian neo-Nazis, and fanatically doing whatever else the GloboCap puppets on their televisions instruct them to fanatically do. However, a significant number of them have retained enough of their critical faculties that being yanked back and forth from “reality” to “reality” is causing them to experience mild cognitive dissonance, and confusion, and shame, or borderline psychosis.

Believe it or not, my heart goes out to them … these formerly fanatical Covidian Cultists that wanted me segregated from society, and silenced, and locked up in an internment camp. I cannot make it easier for them by pretending they didn’t do what they did (and in too many cases are still actively doing), or pretending they were hypnotized, or in some other altered state of consciousness, while they did what they did for the past two and half years, but just imagine how they must be feeling now that the party is finally over and the brutal morning after has arrived.

Imagine realizing at this late stage of things that everything you believed, thought, and said, the incalculable harm you have done to people, and to society, was never about a pandemic, but was always about conditioning the masses to respond to fear, coercion, and control like some global Pavlovian behavioral experiment.

Or just take it from actress Jennifer Gibson …

And now comes the really nauseating part, the part where the New Normal authorities admit that they “overreacted,” and that “mistakes were made,” and that they deeply regret having needlessly murdered and seriously injured God knows how many people, and psychologically crippled countless children, and accidentally totally destabilized and restructured the entire global economy, and explain in a lengthy piece in The New Yorker how they’re sorry, but they were drunk at the time, and swear they will never do it again.

You remember this part from 2004 after the invasion and occupation of Iraq when the photos of Abu Ghraib were published, and the American masses who had been hooting and hollering and waving American flags around, and calling people “ragheads” and “sand niggers,” and so on, had to stare themselves and their war crimes in the face.

You recall how the Americans dealt with their shame. That’s right, they reelected George Bush and carried on murdering and torturing Iraqis, and Afghans, and assorted other brown people, and hooting and hollering “we’re number one,” and waving American flags around, because in for a penny, in for a pound.

You see, another fundamental human attribute (in addition to our ability to force ourselves to believe whatever we need to believe in order to survive and thrive in society) is that we don’t tend to deal with shame very well. We tend to repress it and react aggressively to anyone who tries to force us to face it. If you don’t believe me, ask anyone you know who has been (or still is) in an abusive relationship. Ask them how their abuser reacts when they try to get them to take responsibility for their abusive behavior.

I can’t tell you exactly what’s going to happen over the coming months, but I told you back in January that there was going to be wailing and gnashing of teeth, and wailing and gnashing of teeth there has been, and there is certainly going to be a lot more of it … and probably not just wailing and gnashing.

This is just the dawn of the Morning After. I have a feeling we ain’t seen nothing yet.

  1. Mr. Hopkins – You have never been more right in your life. I noticed in Ms. Gibson’s Twitter recording even though she was harmed, she still advocates for the “vaccine”. I would imagine even if, post “vaccine” she comes down with COVID multiple times, she will still continue to advocate for the “vaccine”. These people have not one whit of wisdom or discernment. I don’t care what their IQ tests at, they’re complete sheep. You stated, “You can’t keep people whipped up into a state of full-blown hysteria indefinitely”. I beg to differ. Where I live masks are still ubiquitous. Social distancing is still the norm. The stores still have all the plexiglass barriers installed. People are still double-masked while alone in their cars. If you try to approach them they step back to maintain their distance. You can see the fear in their eyes. COVID is not over for them and I don’t believe they will ever return to what I would consider “normal”. Hypnotized zombies.

  2. I can’t find an explanation anywhere as to why there isn’t anger amongst all the duped. Why aren’t they angry they got duped into a totally useless/dangerous shot… and that they were told it was perfectly ok to shop at Home Depot, but their church had to be shut down – because, you know, the virus stayed away from Home Depot?

    1. CJs got his own take on it but there are many others who never bought into the narrative, which was a dramatic departure in many ways to public health policy way back in 2019 and for decades prior. You obviously “cope” by biting the ankles of your intellectual betters.

      1. Thanks for the correction. That’s what I get for just doing a basic web search.

  4. An alternate theory. My older sis is a goody two shoes, always has been, still today. Only one year apart but lifelong close, I couldn’t be more opposite. Mostly IDGAF about other people’s opinions even as young as four.
    With this stark difference (“Why can’t you be more like your sister?” every teacher said) in front of me I might suggest that people are what they were born to be on this scale of go-along to get along VS a**hole.

    I have numerous acquaintances with iq over 180. They are all vaccinated and most boosted. Almost everyone in my extended family is vaxed and half are boosted. Meanwhile I have been shouting since the cruse ship Diamond Princess that warning flags were waving. Everyone I am close to has heard enough facts that they are totally discombobulated. But only a few didn’t baaa like sheep and line up for a shot. Funny coinky-dink, those that did not submit were the ones who did not watch tv.

      1. Yes, higher education is comformity school. Anything novel would by definition threaten the established order i.e. the guy who holds the power over your grades. I’ve experienced both sides of it myself. As a young college student I wrote a decent paper with a perspective at odds with my professor. She was not able to judge it on its merits, but reacted emotionally and defensively. Never forgot that. Later, when I returned to school for an MA I needed in my career and to support my family, I parroted everything exactly and graduated with over 4.0 – all paid for by the school itself. So, as the article states, “It is basic part of how social bodies function; conformity is rewarded and non-conformity is punished.”


        1. You can only “talk” to a leftist in a reasonable manner if you act like you agree with what they see. Or just nod your head. Otherwise, you are crossed off their list. Which, as I get older… I am just fine with.


      2. Leni Riefenstahl called it the “submissive void” when asked how a civilized, advanced and educated society could sink into the Old Normal Reich.


      3. Pandemic of the mid-wits. A lot of PhDs who actually used quant skills while doing their dissertations could easily see through the BS, while the less educated had a healthy distrust of big gov being there to help them.


      4. Great phrase that (pandemic of the educated). A wise observer of these topics that I follow to on YT calls K-16 public education “slave school” and he isn’t far off either, even at that level of bombast. People underestimate how powerful modern television and other media are as propaganda or even “mind control” tools. Jacques Ellul once wrote that “modern man is ready to fall down and worship facts.” But its really much worse – we’ll fall down and worship fake facts, made up facts, as long as doing so allows us to keep our noses firmly planted close to the ass cheeks of the sled dog in front of us. And that’s why Joseph Goebbel’s “Big Lie” tactics are so damn effective in the hands of authority.


    1. Media consumption is a key correlate to conformist behavior. I know some extreme blue check nerds who are so addicted to video games that they don’t have time to take their tv and socmed doses; their compliance and submission levels seem to be significantly off. Too bad there are no scientists left to do the study.

    That will be the case particularly if they find a way to subdue Russia. Which will make it easier to subdue China at a later, not much later maybe, moment.
    Power is the most powerful addictive drug there is.
    They couldn’t stop what they are doing even if they wanted to — only lack of success, and facing some consequences, may be able to stop them from that —.

    1. Subduing Russia, or China for that matter, are Western fantasies.
      It’s over for The West and that class of Masters of The Universe are having a difficult adjustment period.

      Specifically, from the realm of what actually counts, an advanced, nuclear weaponized submarine “went missing”.
      Missing from US-NATO-UK radars and sensors as it set out to the deep oceans.

      Sending a message. Tr anything serious and serious things will happen to you.
      Zelenskyy’s recent request for nuclear strikes on Russia will be wisely ignored.
      Not that some in Washington circles haven’t contemplated this and more than once.

      In the limits, The Generals decide and possibly the last outpost of realism.


    1. you’re in for a treat. Hopkins’s work grew much more serious with the beginning of the Covid scam; his stuff from 2016 still makes me scream and fall down laughing. nice break–


  6. Is this you being a satirist or a pundit?
    I don’t really see these apologies, yet.
    And I think your analogy to Abu Ghraib is about as pretty and sensible as Jennifer Gibson.
    The straight facts are ugly and surreal as anyone can stand, very hard to satirize or pundate them.


  7. The feeling I have at the moment is like post exam exhaustion and emptiness, a lack of purpose. Not the elation that might be theoretically expected.

    When all the revelations of misdeeds came up I quickly ignored them because they are yesterday’s news. Unless the mainstream media runs with it, it’s just something else that went down the memory hole and was forgotten. We live in the moment. Yesterday’s lions can’t harm us and we are constantly scanning for today’s. The dark magician has enough crises up his sleeve to keep us occupied and cowed in perpetuity.

  8. This all seems so self evident, but the problem I anticipate running into someday is what happens when I crash into someone else’s reality? When the whole scamdemic occurred, it turned out to be a big fat nothing burger for me. There were no mandates to get jabbed, and no one forced me to don a face diaper. I did take one short trip up to Maryland and while punching out my password inside a gas station, the manager did approach and mumble something to me through her face diaper which I felt compelled to ignore. If people can’t be bothered to articulate coherent speech, I can’t be bothered to waste my time trying to decipher it.

    My neighbor across the street got jabbed. He and his wife both then got quite sick. They then both got two more booster shots and got sick again. Other than them, I don’t know anyone around here who could care less about covid 19 or the clot shots. I guess I live in a reality where the rule of law no longer applies, at least when it comes to laws that make no sense.


    1. Consider yourself fortunate. I went to the grocery store this morning. I was literally the only person in the building without a mask. Everyone was dutifully wiping everything down with sanitizer lest the V leap off of some surface and infect them. Giant plexiglass barriers to “protect” the employees. Clown world.


      1. There are still the large plexiglass windows between clerk and customer, and there were some people wearing masks and wiping everything down when this all first began, but as far as I can tell there were no mandates to wear masks, get jabbed, etc. Some stores installed arrows indicating which way one was supposed to walk down an aisle, but I never saw anyone following these guidelines. Lowe’s also had a PSA announcement reminding customers to maintain social distancing guidelines, wear a mask, etc. which made me feel like I’d just walked into an episode of The Twilight Zone.

        As fortunate as I feel about dodging all that nonsense, I’m still quite concerned about running into people who are still playing the sickness kabuki. I feel it is my duty to them to make sure that they know I’m a super spreader so they can take appropriate measures to stay as far away from me as possible.


  9. The question now is where do European countries go now.
    For many the cost of living will become impossible.
    Yet the arguably fascist leadership of Germany and the EU more generally is to remain with Washington diktats.

    All help to The Ukraine – questionable with that massively corrupt operation.
    Social neglect at home. The German Greens have a lot to answer for.
    Ideologically bent.
    The entire EU foreign policy for the past two years achieves the exact opposite outcomes of stated intentions.

    What is next? Double down. They have nothing left.
