If this goes unfettered until next spring, the war may be lost.

The essence of totalitarianism — regardless of which costumes and ideology it wears — is a desire to completely control society, every aspect of society, every individual behavior and thought. Every totalitarian system, whether an entire nation, a tiny cult, or any other form of social body, evolves toward this unachievable goal … the total ideological transformation and control of every single element of society (or whatever type of social body it comprises). This fanatical pursuit of total control, absolute ideological uniformity, and the elimination of all dissent, is what makes totalitarianism totalitarianism.

    Not an uncommon sentiment for fakeologist types xileffilex, when hearing old-timers who went through hard times speak of living through “hell on earth,” we can now understand how that might look. The surprising thing is how easy it’s been for the controllers to turn the people against one another just by invoking this magic virus that lacks any consistent cohesive narrative. Wait until the shortages of basic necessities and economic hardship get thrown in, (they will). Our social stresses, already frayed, are going to be pushed into uncharted territory for most people.
