The last Peak Stupidity post that was completely about Kung Flu Stupidity was published over a month ago, with 2 more that briefly mentioned it near the end of June. Though this drought of Kung Flu Stupidity may be eating into our bottom line, we like it. I don't say this particular madness won't be revived, and some of the effects, such as the Totalitarian policies will stay ready for use. It's nice to not have to deal with it for a while.
I did my best to deal with it in my way, complying with as little as possible, and writing 245(!) Kung Flu PanicFest-related posts. However, we are still The English and we live in our English world. That's what the Amish call us, anyway.* The Amish blew this PanicFest off like, it was... well, like we all should have. It helped a lot that they didn't have a barrage of panic coming from their TV's, internet, or smart phones for 2 years, because they don't have any of those.
The video below is a blast from the past, back to October of last year. I watched it in the comments section of Mr. E.H. Hail's most recent post, A “wild” Corona-Reckoning may be coming in 2022-2024, Matthew Peterson of the Claremont Institute predicts on his Hail to You blog.
The video is a segment from the show Full Measure with Sharyl Attkinson**. Some of us have known pretty much all that the main Amish interviewee, Calvin Lapp, said there. Still it's very refreshing to hear it all from someone free to speak his mind, with an interviewer who didn't panic and let him speak.
I'm sure you'll be amused by "And during the Covid-19 outbreak, they became the subjects of a massive social and medical experiment." Well, yeah, it was an experiment, alright, but not in the way she meant. It was more of an experiment in how much panic could be induced and how much Totalitarianism could be implemented, for now ...
Then, "The Amish chose a unique path..." Well, yeah. They weren't completely left alone, but with their way of life, they were most able to avoid all the worst parts of the PanicFest. We English aren't left alone like that, or they'll call us "Survivalists" and come with tear gas, guns, and tanks to kill us. Additionally, we don't have quite the solidarity the Amish do.
I think all Peakers will enjoy this video****. Thank you, Dieter Kief, for bringing this to our attention!
Next time around, we can do the Spartacus thing:
"No! I am Amish!"
"Why don't you guys figure it out, so I know who to jab here, mmmkaaay?"
* I wonder what they call all the various other races and nationalities they may see there in their parts of Pennsylvania and Ohio. Their calling everyone "English" could be a real insult. I won't say who would likely be insulted, but ...
** I think she produces the show too. She's been one of the few good journalists over the years. This lady is the one that helped break open the "gunwalker" story that bloggers Mike Vanderboegh*** and David Codrea investigated for many months first. This had to do with Attorney General Eric Holder attempting to blame American gun stores for violence by Mexican drug cartels, for his boss Øb☭ma .
*** Unfortunately for America, Mike died 6 years ago.
**** You can read the transcript here on the Full Measure website. I could have commented for 1,000 more words on it, but you all can do that in the comments here.
