Mal Zeedick

The Mao Zedong (Mal Zeedick) story is still large in the imaginations of millions. It is to him that millions devote themselves. This is whom they worship: an addict who hungered for power and loved sadism. So the devotees of Maoism worship gluttony, power and violence. Just like their god, 黄猴阴茎毛泽东.

The coronation of Emperor BiteMe has been announced with hot, hard fanfare by the Court Jesters. All the usual promises of money and fear are celebrated today. Long Live Emperor BiteMe and his courtesan Kumlala Harrasem.

But socialism has never been done correctly. And those that tried it didn’t try hard enough.” I dunno, 100 million dead and growing is pretty hard. Mao Zedong’s heart was pretty hard. BLM and Antifa, is this the hard heart you desire?

The story is huge for socialism. Socialists live by the approved story. All disciples of 毛澤東哲學 the Mal Zeedick Way download and embody 黄猴阴茎每日新闻. Socialism is folly. 黄猴阴茎哲学 is even more ridiculous without a founding story of victimhood perpetrated by the oppressors.

Mal Zeedick Down With White Supremacy

Death to White Supremacy

Lately, American Socialism has leveled the charges of racism and white supremacy at anyone who isn’t a disciple of 毛澤東哲學, anyone who isn’t of the orthodox ancestry, anyone who is even modestly better off, and anyone on their enemies list. So, pretty much everyone who isn’t a member of the party is 反共黨. Being a party member isn’t safe, though. Survival in the party may depend on accusing someone else of being an oppressor.

美國社會主義 (American Socialism) tells a story of oppression, violence, and slavery perpetrated by enemies of the party. So they say, my ancestors arrived in 1619 and since then, life has been fucked for everyone else. The solution is to burn it all down and start over. Somehow, this brilliant idea is novel and never tried. So we must try it hotter and harder.

Decoding 1619 is easy. The two ones are dicks. The 69 is mutual oral sex. So 1619 is a coded reference meaning two men giving each other blow jobs. This post will be demonetized.

By the premise of 1619, laws are for party members. Everyone else is fair game. Because of 1619, nothing of the extant society has a right to exist. The only people with a right to live are party members. The rest of the people on this stolen land must be turned into stinking meat (臭肉).

Destroy Evil Art

Any art depicting Civil War heroes is apostate and must be destroyed. ACAB graffiti sprayed on the walls of businesses shouts the approved story about law enforcement. Oppressed people expressing their anger at centuries of forced shit-show living justifies violence against the cops. Because, obviously, the anger is justified.

Why do I care? I care because some politicians exploit socialist stories to lord over the populace. The hate, violence, oppression, addiction, and cray-cray inspired by 黄猴阴茎毛泽东 has made my craft an insult to good work. Where story once entertained and enlightened it now enslaves and bludgeons.

I have no right to my own story because of my ancestry. My story was stolen from me by followers of 黃猴陰莖哲學. In its place is an imputed story published in 黃猴陰莖每日新聞.

黃猴陰莖每日新聞 is published in time for the usual cube-rat morning alarm of 5:30 am and memorized by party members in time for their arrival at the rat-wheel at 8:00 am. Deja Vu “1984” all over again, “Hey Joey, I heard that Cheeto Satan was caught on video fucking a dog. I always knew he was a pervert“.

All White People Are Evil

This is the orthodoxy concerning non-party members: we are evil. Our sin? Bougie, so, so much bougie it’s disgusting. We cause the strife and struggles of party members by our ancestry. The misery of party members has a single cause: white people.

Let’s define a phrase—white people. White people are not just my ancestors. There are not enough white people to fill the graves and satisfy the bloodlust of the party. White people are anyone who isn’t a member of the party. Never mind that a good number of party members are . . . wait for it . . . wait . . . white people.

The most disgusting white people are anyone who has even a drop of African ancestry and has succeeded in building a bougie life. Why? Being bougie is bad enough. Being more or less brown/black and bougie is a horror.

The Mal Zeedick Story Matters

How does this connect to my craft? Well . . . a topic of mine for at least four years has been the way in which story informs behavior. If your operating story is socialist then your life is stained by gluttony, rife with a hunger for power, and tormented by the consequences of the violence around you. Your operating story does not allow for justice or peace.

Socialism loses its founding reason if justice or peace is ever achieved. The entire existence of socialism is anchored on strife. To be socialist is to be a sadistic, hateful addict bent on destruction. Why? The founding story is built on hate.

But socialists are peace-loving, caring people. They are not advocates of violence.” Liar. The core narrative of socialists is a codependent story of being oppressed because some others perpetuate slavery and violence on party members. How is that loving?

Mal Zeedick Systemic Racism Murder White Privilege Story

Murder White Privilege Story

White people have to behave in a manner approved by the party so that party members can get justice and give white people peace. The Party’s peace is in the hands of white people. I am white people. Do me a favor, let me give back the power you claim I have. I don’t want it.

Socialism is a creature of our lizard brain’s itch to fight. The fight is the existential reason for socialism. So good socialists fight.

From its origins in our lizard brains socialism has fallen into a habit of painting everything the same color. All White People are Evil. No Black Lives Matter. Anyone Who Isn’t White is Oppressed. Glittering generalities abound.

Mal Zeedick George Orwell 1984 Our Leader Gives Us Truth

Our Leader Gives Us Truth

Just a reminder for those who beat their middle school logic class out of their heads in search of justice and peace: if one exception can be found to a glittering generality then the claims made by it become false. Too much big Engrish? Let’s do an example: all apples are red. For this to be true there must not be any apples of another color. Most of us would giggle at this absurdity. Socialists would burn any orchard growing non-red apples and punish the farmer for even thinking of harvesting the wrong apples. Hateful non-red apples eliminated. Justice and peace apple achievement unlocked.

It’s never that simple though. Justice and peace in socialist circles resists achievement. First, justice and peace are an existential threat to the party. Next, the party exists in God’s world where free will exists. There is resistance. All the party’s work to achieve paradise has never eliminated cheating and crime. Actually, it is capitalist crime that makes surviving a socialist economy livable. 抵抗萬歲.

We can win against this. Socialism depends on the strict embodying of a hateful story. Destroying Socialism is simple: attack the story. The library of archetypical stories is large. The founding story of socialism is only one of the millions of competing stories available. All we have to do is teach a story that foments compassion. Words matter. Words formed into stories can change lives.

Mal Zeedick Black Power Fist Death to White Privilege Religion

Death to White Privilege Religion

How about this story: over two thousand years ago a Nazarene man sought a place to stay while the Roman census was conducted. His wife was pregnant with a son not his own. They traveled to Bethlehem and could not find a room to stay in. The only place available was the stables. The only bed for their newborn was a feeding trough. Baby Jesus was born homeless to Jewish parents. This is not an auspicious start for a future king.

Much absurdity ensues. This Nazarene Jew named Jesus so completely angers his church leadership that they demand his crucifixion by the Romans. Jesus is crucified. The end? No. Three days later he reappears alive. Absurd? Absolutely. True? Well . . . Jesus was either a crackpot or he was telling the truth. You decide.

Disciples of Christ follow a way of life rooted in love. It is antithetical to Socialism. 黃猴陰莖哲學 Mal Zeedick Philosophy seeks collective justice from its enemies. Reformed Christians say that redemption is individual. Each of us must answer for our sins and pursue union with Christ. Socialism’s heart of hearts beats with blood made of hate. The Way of Jesus of Nazareth (דרכו של ישו מנצרת) has a heart that bleeds with the blood of the lamb, Jesus. Its story is one of triumph over extraordinary strife by self-sacrificing love.

Mal Zeedick Three Crosses There is Only Mal Zeedick

There is Only Mal Zeedick

This is a story of two kings. One, 黄猴阴茎 (Mal Zeedick), created a way of life rooted in gluttony, violence, and an insatiable hunger for power. 耶稣 died and took sin and death with him to Hell. On the third day, 耶稣 rose again from the dead. The kingdom of Christ has a core of self-sacrificial love. The kingdom of 黄猴阴茎 (Mal Zeedick) rules over a castle built on hate for its enemies.

Hate never wins in any of the archetypical hero tales I am aware of. Love wins. 耶稣 wins. To be a socialist is to be on the losing side. We all cross the River Styx one day. Our choice is the story we live on the way to the shores of the River Styx. Is your choice to live the losing story on your journey to the other side?

What’s Wrong With Socialism?

This is what’s wrong with socialism: its heart of hearts is hate. Everything Marx, Engel, Stalin, Lenin, Mao, Mussolini, Hitler, and others have a core built on hate. Hate for whom or what? Hate for the bourgeoisie.

This is one thing wrong with Marx and Mao: they are addicts. I know, they are dead and so it should be “were”. Their way of life lives on in BLM and Antifa so I’ve used a present tense verb. Marx was an alcoholic and opium addict. Mao was addicted to sleeping pills. The character of a leader is lived out in those he or she leads. So it’s no accident that followers of Marx and Mao behave like dry drunks.

Here is a dirty little secret: capitalism has never been rooted out of Communist/Socialist societies. Where central control and governance fail to provide for a society black market capitalism invades like toxic mold. North Korea survives because of a thriving Black Market trade conducted by women.

The final wrong thing is violence. If you don’t believe in violence you are a fake revolutionary. 毛澤東 rose to power on a mountain of bodies. He is quoted in “Mao, the Untold Story” as being pleased with the deaths caused by his policies. His fight with Chiang Kai Shek starved and consequently killed thousands. But BLM isn’t like that. No? Then why are they rioting, looting, setting businesses on fire, and shooting people?

萬歲,希拉里·克林頓!

毛澤東的生活方式 (Mao Zedong Way of Life) is the core belief system of BLM and Antifa. So at the heart of BLM and Antifa is hate, addiction, and violence. The key demand is that we kowtow before them and adhere to absurd, violent slavery so that they can get justice and give us peace.

Followers of 毛澤東的生活方式 must hate privilege and anyone/anything that exposes their tribe as doing worse than someone else. The final solution is to bludgeon all that other into behaving in a way pleasing to the tribe. Next, you as an individual are merely an atom, an ant in a collective enterprise that gives you everything. The individual is nothing. The collective and the state are everything.

毛澤東是獨一的真神

At our core, we were founded on Christian ethics rooted in love. We are holy fire to the smoldering rot that is socialism. You can’t be a sincere Christian and a serious disciple of Mao. Liber XX: 4-6 “Non facies tibi sculptile, neque omnem similitudinem quae est in caelo desuper et quae in terra deorsum nec eorum quae sunt in aquis sub terra. Et non adorabis ea et non coles ego enim sum Dominus Deus tuus fortis zelotes visitans iniquitatem patrum super filios in tertiam et quartam generationem eorum qui oderunt me: et faciens misericordiam in milia de his qui diligunt me, et custodiunt præcepta mea.”

It is Mao that is the god-king of American Communism. Marx rejected religion as an opiate for the masses. Mao, hearing this, felt a thrill run down his leg. He could follow the lead of 儀皇帝. As a god-king, he could rule in a way much more powerful than petty-bourgeois and secular leaders like Stalin or Lenin. Getting the populace addicted to him was an awesome move he pursued diligently. And it worked, better than he could imagine.

It is to 毛澤東 that BLM looks for liturgy and theology. Mao rose to power on a Babylon tower of fear, shame, and violence. Mao Tse Tung tortured and murdered his way to a titular imperial rule. His Great Leap forward starved to death between 20 to 46 million people. Hitler was a piker.

自我譴責和生活

To be alive in Mao’s China was to fear the label 反布爾什維克 (Anti-Bolshevik). This was an all-purpose accusation perpetrated to either save yourself or cause an enemy to be cleansed. There was no need for our criminal justice process. The accusation was sufficient. The consequences were brutal torture and death.

Those that survived were forced to self-denounce their failure to be sufficiently supportive of Mao and the Chinese Communist Party. You could not be moderate. You had to love the Party and Mao with enough fervor. Any weakening of your devotion was risking an accusation of 反布爾什維克.

Why should we care? It is 2020. 毛澤東 died 1976年9月9日 (1976-9-9). That’s 44 years ago. So yesterday. Modern Socialism is better. Ok. Sendero Luminoso is still active in Peru. As for BLM, they are Maoists. They demand that we shout, “Black Lives Matter” with sufficient passion. Well-meaning intellectuals hold critical race theory training classes where the task is for white people to perform a self-denouncement of their racism and privilege. So 毛主義 is still relevant.

白猴子妓女

And here is why: the tactics of BLM are Mao’s tactics of fear and shame. You can’t be merely sympathetic to the plight of the downtrodden. You have to prove your fealty with sufficient fervor. Problem? Yeah, you can’t fulfill the demand. Nothing you do is sufficient.

If you are white? Forget about it. White people are innately evil and racist. They could flagellate themselves while chanting “Black Lives Matter” 247365 until they fell out and it would not be enough. BLM is built on hate, shame, and anger. It shares its heart of hearts with 毛澤東哲學.

This the stage on which this post is placed—I am the totem for every evil thing claimed as the cause of the oppression of African Americans. My accusers assign me power over the lives of millions of Black Folk and accuse me of oppressing them simply because I live and breathe.

IGAFDU, "I Give a Fuck, Do You". What's Wrong With Socialism?

IGAFDU

I keep repeating this. That I am accused of being a little g god responsible for the misery of millions. I don’t want the power I am accused of having. This is my larger point: you can’t serve both 耶穌 (Jesus) and 毛澤東 Máozédōng. Exodus 20:4-6, “切勿為自己雕刻圖像,或在天上,在地下,在地下的水中做任何類似的事情。 5你不可屈服於他們或為他們服務,因為我主你的神是嫉妒的神,向那些恨我的人的第三代和第四代拜訪父親的罪孽,6但要表現出堅定的愛 給成千上萬愛我並遵守我誡命的人。” Also, Matthew 6:24, “沒有人可以服務於兩個主人,因為他要么恨一個主人而愛另一個主人,要么他將致力於一個主人而鄙視另一個主人。 你不能事奉上帝和金錢.

In English: “You shall not make for yourself a carved image or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands[a] of those who love me and keep my commandments.” and “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”

Mao did not tolerate any weakening of fealty to the Party. You had to compete with your kin and neighbors to show more devotion than them. Failure could get you killed. Violence, fear and shame were the three weapons used to prove you loved Mao and the Party more than anyone else. So millions died.

您必須死於世界,並在耶穌基督裡獲得生命

Or . . . an absurd story about a carpenter from Nazareth born in a stable in Bethlehem to homeless parents. This wretch taught us to love our enemies. He said we should do unto others as we would have them do unto us. Matthew 7:12, “因此,無論您希望別人對您做什麼,也希望他們也這樣做,因為這就是律法和先知。”

So the challenge is this. To whom do you worship? A genocidal emperor wanna-be who caused the death of millions or that crazy Carpenter who broke the Sabbath and healed the sick? No, don’t answer. I don’t actually care.

BLM says we should care about Black Lives. Then they foment riots in our cities in areas populated by Black Lives. BLM blames the cops for the deaths of young black men. They make the absurd demand that there cannot be another death by a cop in a country of 330 million people until the end of time. Or what? Or they will destroy the businesses that support Black Lives.

Yeon-Mi Park (박연미)

Three things, then. First, when threatened and told that in exchange for the removal of the threat I must comply my interest in compliance dies. I don’t care what it is you want me to do. You threatened me. That’s the first thing I will deal with. So “silence is violence” is a threat I will answer. Just not the way you want me to.

Second, I am a disciple of Christ. I belong to Jesus of Nazareth. I am at peace with the knowledge that through history devotion to Christ became a deadly choice. Tortured and told that I must prove my allegiance to ending racism just moves me to defy the demand. I’ll fail and choose torture and death before I renounce Christ.

Next, I’ve been watching Yeon-Mi Park on YouTube. Yeon-Mi chose to flee instead of fight. My takeaway is that Kim Jung Un, for all his effort to emulate Mao and succeed, hasn’t solved the problem of the Black Market. Black Market Capitalism is the hidden reason why Communism in North Korea hasn’t completely collapsed. Capitalism is a virus in Communist societies that fills the gaps created by a centralized, large, and incompetent government.

承認你的特權

Last thing. Self-Criticism vs. the Prayer of Confession. Everyone in Mao’s China and Kim Jon Un (김정은) must perform a self-criticism regularly. This is every Saturday in North Korea. There are two tasks. One must name a thing done wrong in the previous week and one must also name someone who did something wrong. From this self-criticism, there will be punishment for yourself, and for the person you named. There is no forgiveness. There is no future day in which your confessed crime is redeemed. The misery continues and moral improvement isn’t a concern.

About that before I conclude. I count this as axiomatic: for every law there is a cheat (每一個法律都有一個騙局). Which means I suspect the Saturday self-denunciation (자기 비난) in North Korea is gamed so that those attending can protect themselves. The accusations and punishments are kept minor for most people. There are, I’m sure, conflicts that leak into Saturdays which cause more serious accusations and consequences. I’ll also guess that bribery plays a part in this rite of self-denunciation. It’s not the same as the Prayer of Confession.

The Prayer of Confession is different. Part of the liturgy of many Reformed congregations is a corporate prayer of confession. The pastor will talk about some failing of the congregation related to the sermon. Where Self-Criticism ignores forgiveness and redemption Reformed churches conclude the Prayer of Confession with an announcement of Christ’s grace and forgiveness.

我跟隨耶穌

I have an ask as you march on the National Mall and call for revolution to replace our evil society with a Socialist Paradise. What are you for? You are marching for genocide and hate if it is 毛澤東哲學 or some flavor of it.

As for me and my house, I choose Christ—Joshua 24:15, “Now therefore fear the Lord and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness. Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. 15 And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
「所以,你們要敬畏耶和華,誠心誠意地事奉祂,摒棄你們祖先在幼發拉底河那邊和在埃及所拜的神明,專心事奉耶和華。 15 如果你們不願意事奉耶和華,今天就選擇你們的神明吧,或大河那邊你們祖先事奉的神明,或你們這裡亞摩利人的神明。至於我和我全家,我們必事奉耶和華。」

Sin autem malum vobis videtur ut Domino serviatis, optio vobis datur: eligite hodie quod placet, cui servire potissimum debeatis: utrum diis, quibus servierunt patres vestri in Mesopotamia, an diis Amorrhaeorum, in quorum terra habitatis: ego autem et domus mea serviemus Domino.

Wuhan Kung Flu

Let’s stop dancing around the elephant in the room. It’s the Wuhan Flu (武漢流行性感冒). Actually . . . it’s the Wuhan Kung Flu. SARS COVID-19 is a novel SARS virus similar to the Spanish Flu. As time goes on it seems that it is very, very highly infectious but about as deadly as the seasonal flu we get every year. The deadly thing isn’t the virus. It is our collective freak-out over the Wuhan Kung Flu.

There are two illnesses afoot in our country. One is Wuhan Kung Flu. The other is a collective panic attack yeasted up by media celebrities and Maoist Yellow True Believers who saw the tea leaves and decided that this is their moment. These YTB’s happily get naked and flop onto the couch with their legs akimbo for a GFE with the Chinese Communist Party.

Obummer and the Debaclecrats used their 8 years to sell our country to anyone with enough money. The Chinese, ever enterprising, wooed the Sowshul Demutants with promises of a dynasty and epic wealth. We are the drug sick crack-whore willing to fuck for a $10.00 piece.

Wuhan Kung Flu Sauce for Your Laptop?

Name a laptop that isn’t made in China. My Lenovo t480s that I bought last year was made in 深圳. Ditto my phone and tablet. Very little is made in this country anymore. Smithfield Country Hams? Chinese. Even critical technology in the F35 fighter is made in China. Last, we owe $1.09 Trillion to China.

Whatever. Right? Not even. When China coughs, we get sick. One theory floating out there is that the Wuhan Kung Flu is a virus hatched under Chinese research contract managed by none other than Dr. Anthony Fauci. Fauci and the Obama Administration paid the lab in Wuhan to work on a novel SARS virus that they could in turn, figure out how to treat. Ok, fine.

Problem. That virus escaped the lab in Wuhan. It’s in our world now making people sick. Dr. Fauci, if this theory is true, you fucked up.

We thought China was our whore. Since 1972 we have been in bed with a country we thought was a nubile, docile exotic flower. That country is a war dragon playing the long game. She’s good with a little bed time because she knows the power of sex, money and fear.

Not Yet Up

Rock bottom is a thing. I don’t know if we are there yet. We are close. China is revealing her true nature as a dragon queen with a taste for ‘merican meat. Orange Menace’s opposition is losing. And it seems that the Lotus Flower we thought was our bitch played us.

We are her bitch. The Dragon Queen owns us. Yes, this connects to Wuhan Kung Flu. I’m about to get to that. You can tell who has Chinese hemorrhoids by the propaganda they publish. The true believers are the ones with the most shrill, dystopian tantrums blaming everyone except the Chinese.

Empress Cixi Wuhan Kung Flu

This is an apocalyptic, end of the world health crisis say the Yellow True Believers (YTB’s). Their answer? Maoism. We need a fundamental change to our society. A Cultural Revolution will cure us of Wuhan Kung Flu and save us from our sinful ways.

True Belief

Obama’s Administration further embedded a seditious cadre of Maoists and صحيح المؤمنين الإسلام within the White House. With Billary in the Oval Orifice the road to الجنة would be improved. This is part of a long term plan to make America Maoist Again (MAMA). After all, Mao is the one true way to a perfect world. Anyone who doesn’t see that needs reeducation.

The YTB’s lost a crucial battle when their attempted coup d’etat of Donald Trump turned into a limp dick dystopian tantrum that was full of sound and fury and signified nothing. Nothing Orange Shitweasel has been accused of has stuck. Quite the contrary. Most of the accusations turn out to be things that the Democrats did.

It is a familiar political play that has been invincible for decades. Convict someone in the court of public opinion and leverage that conviction into political death. One problem: Dumpf fights. This is not how it has worked for the YTB’s. They don’t have a counter strategy for someone who answers their accusations with political blows.

Enough specious political theory. I want to move on to our collective freak-out. We were told in February that this was the arrival of the Day of Judgement. The excesses of the ‘Mericans would be called to account and the final judgement pronounced on a corrupt system that profited the rich and oppressed the proletariat. This would be to the glory of Mao.

Shut It Down

The answer was to shut down the country, cower in our homes, stay at least six feet away from each other at all times, wear a face mask 247365, and wait until the YTB’s had burned Washington D.C. to purify it of it’s capitalist excesses. In exchange, the YTB’s claim they’ll pay for everything. This might work in a country that has a long history of imperialism. ‘Merica is a country of dissidents. We don’t comply in the good times. Making us panic makes us even more ornery.

Panic attacks have a cycle. Our reptile brains scream at us to either fight or flee during the attack. That’s where we are today. Soon, though, comes depression as all that adrenaline and dopamine exhausts itself and the thing we want most is sleep. Maybe peanut butter and banana sandwiches. And beer, definitely beer.

A noisy minority of our leaders and media celebrities want the attack to continue for as long as possible. They know that in the heat of our aroused state we’ll say yes to damn near any crazy idea if it will help us calm down. Free shit? Sure. Bigger, more authoritarian rule? Yeah, if it makes us safer.

Mama Knows Best

Various mayors and governors have showed their true colors as Maoist Yellow True Believers (YTB). As we start to venture out of our homes these brokers of anxiety have escalated demands that we stay in our homes in the name of public safety. These wanna-be barons insist that non-essential businesses stay shut down. “Essential” seems to mean, “contributed to my campaign.” These mayors and governors have a narrative they are sticking to.

There have been multiple, conflicting narratives about Wuhan Kung Flu. One is that this is our fault as the seat of the Evil Capitalist Empire. We did this and we should genuflect before Mao while asking for His mercy and forgiveness. Another is that this is a serious crisis but it’s been exploited by YTB’s who believe this is their moment in history to rise to their rightful seat of power. My favorite is that this is an alien virus released by the Illuminati to make us amenable to mind control by Google’s DeepMind AI.

So we get a range of responses. Some of my customers worry about me, about my car, about what sort of evil festers back there where about 20 people a day sit for 15 minutes or so while I drive them to their destination. They come armed with hand sanitizer and Lysol spray ready to do battle with the capitalist demons laying in wait for them.

Just a Ten Piece

One of them didn’t last more than two minutes eight weeks ago before asking me to stop the car and he got out. As he exited the door his words were, “this car is infecting my brain. I hate your sinful capitalist ways! You need to come to Mao and put copies of the Little Red Book in the seat pockets back here.” The problem? I didn’t want him spraying the seats with Lysol. Also, I wasn’t’ wearing a mask. Yeah . . . I’ll get right on that.

My dysfunctional customers are just happy that the voices in their heads are quiet enough to get through the ride. They don’t wear masks and chat with me about the Illuminati implanting an AI in Salmon Voldemort’s brain. For the last couple months I haven’t seen much of the dutiful YTB’s. I’ve made money giving rides to my other customer base: the crazies and criminals. It’s made me nostalgic for 1980’s Oakland, CA Friendly Cab.

At some point even the most devout YTB’s are going to have to come out of the house. All this social distancing stuff has become a farce. It’s simply not possible to shop in a grocery store and stay six feet away from everyone. Masks are another farce. People wear masks incorrectly. The variety of face coverings is emblematic of attitudes towards Kung Flu. You see noses peaking over the top of Harley Davidson handkerchiefs tied around the face. I see people evaluating the crowd coming toward them in the store or on the street and raising or lowering the mask based on their level of anxiety.

Iterate

What’s coming is an emotional crash after an anxiety attack like the one we experienced. To recover we’ll want to shut down. This means that the number of folk who stop giving a fuck will outnumber those praying to Mao in their living rooms. There will be propaganda in the press telling us what sinful people we are and that the answer is to double down on the Cultural Revolution. Some will but more won’t. And the YTB’s will find themselves becoming a topic of snarky meme’s gone viral.

After a fight there is depression, apology, honeymoon and rinse, repeat. “Plus les choses changent, plus elles restent les mêmes.” We are still in the fight so ahead of us is depression. I don’t think we will see an apology because neither BuyDem or Twitler do that. The YTB’s will move the ball and scream about the next perceived dystopian nightmare. They are losing the messaging game so their future is as an amusing reason to waste mass storage on the cloud.

So much of what folk do and feel about Kung Flu has to do with their attitude towards risk and misery. Folk who lean choleric or melancholy resonate with the YTB’s. Marxism and Maoism are angry political philosophies. Being a successful Maoist means being pissed off at an ephemeral enemy that is the reason for one’s misery. It is that ephemeral enemy that must change so the Maoist YTB can feel good. These are the ones still cowering in their safe spaces inside their homes. The ones with eight weeks of delivery containers from their favorite takeout places still piled up around the trash can(s) inside the house.

Life Goes On

The other half, the phlegmatic and sanguine folk, are going about their lives. Some do the needful, some don’t. Our Guvna KnawThem’s dictates fall on their deaf ears. In my neighborhood the smoke from BBQ grills is part one of a two part proscription for Wuhan Kung Flu. Part 2 is beer. The resulting symptom is a drunken sermon on the front lawn accompanied by Spotify’s RapCaviar.

I can’t resist a little preaching. Our institutions are failing us. It’s going to get worse. We’ll have to rely on kin, friends and neighbors. If you don’t already own the land you live on now would be a good time to buy. Start a garden or expand the one you have. If your municipality will let you have chickens, rabbits and maybe a goat, you need those. Spend some time at the gun range so you can hit what you are aiming at. Yes, own a gun. Own something to defend yourself and something you can hunt with. Join a church or something like the Rotary Club.

Start bartering with people so you don’t rely entirely on cash or credit to acquire what you need. Get out of debt except for your mortgage. Keep a supply of water and food sufficient to keep yourself and your kin fed for a month, longer if you can. For more on this, Survival Sullivan.

Mountain People Playing Music Wuhan Kung Flu

That’s enough. Kung Flu isn’t going to kill us all. And the Yellow True Believers don’t know it yet but they are becoming a joke. China? I won’t be surprised if we end up in a war with the dragon we thought was our bitch.
