To proclaim your faith in government is to stand on a beach facing tsunami waves of damning evidence that indicate governments should arouse nothing but one’s deepest suspicion. From Joe Jarvis at thedailybell.com:
This time, things will be different. He’s abused me in the past, but I’m sure he’s changed. At the core, he really loves me, he just has a strange way of showing it.
Does this sound like a healthy relationship to you? A partner who gaslights you, acting like you’re the crazy one for being suspicious… when you’ve been lied to and manipulated so many times in the past. Someone who sows division to isolate you from your friends and family so you have no one to rely on but the abuser.
Here’s a crazy idea: we shouldn’t trust consistently untrustworthy people and institutions.
Literally, people act like you’re the crazy one for being skeptical of some of the least trustworthy institutions in existence.
If you asked a typical extreme leftist in early 2020 if they trusted big pharma, they would laugh in your face.
They might talk about pharma-bro Martin Skrelli hiking drug prices, or correctly note how the Perdue family made billions partnering with the government and doctors to get Americans hooked on legalized heroin pills.
But today, utter the phrase, “I’m not so sure about these vaccines,” and prepare for the gaslighting. You’re CRAZY for not trusting big pharma’s “safe and effective, safe and effective, safe and effective” vaccines 100%, no questions asked.
