Are You Playing Chess with Pigeons?
There is a new religion. It is the religion where decrees are issued from on high, and they must be accepted without question. These decrees are not about truth or fact. They are about power and control.
The last few years have revealed that the authority, whoever that is, must not be questioned. To question authority is to reveal that you are not following “The Science”.
The scientific process’s very nature is to subject one’s work to questioning and to posit that your hypothesis has not yet been rejected.
Issuing a decree from on high involves co-opting institutions that represent the authority. Such an institution would be the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Remember when people were banned from social media for suggesting that natural immunity was real?
It was as if everything that we knew about natural immunity was suddenly abandoned. The “Authority” handed down from on high the new science, and no one was allowed to engage in debate on the subject.
Anyone who did not comply and tried to make an argument counter to the decree was cast out. That is what religion does; it creates IN and OUT groups. Religion creates the “other”, those who are unenlightened.
Those in the OUT group must pay for their sins. Many lost their jobs and were excommunicated from their social groups. Those who formed part of the IN group displayed their virtue by embracing the power to condemn those who were uninformed and not following the science.
After all the damage inflicted in the name of science, the CDC has changed its mind. The CDC announced that there should be no differentiation between vaccinated and unvaccinated due to the high prevalence of population immunity due to vaccination and past infection. Just like that, without apology, what we all knew to be the case is acceptable again. This is a game of pigeon chess!
When playing chess with a pigeon, the pigeon struts all over the chess board, its wings out, knocking over the pieces and crapping all over the place, and declares itself the winner. You can’t say to the pigeon, “but that is not how the game is played”. The pigeon plays by its own rules and makes up its own rules.
When faced with pigeons, no conversation or logic can save the game or change any minds. This is the religion of the woke and the decree of authority. The meaning of words is not what they once were, and “The Science” is all fake.
The best course of action is to walk away and not engage.
