The bedwetting/brainwashed half of the country and the monomaniacal scientists will be frothing at the bit for more restrictions as the situation worsens over the next month, while the freedom-lovers will have less of a leg to stand on (it will be said): opposition to lockdown will be much feebler as a result.So in a situation where all of the scientists are convinced that Johnson's government is rushing too fast to open up, where other countries are horrified at the recklessness towards its population displayed by the UK government, where half of his own country are begging with him not to totally relax the rules as they fear the results, the obvious conclusion is that the UK Government is sinisterly in favour of total lockdown?
The Time article was about people getting together to ensure that the institutions of democracy worked and couldn't be subverted. Eg a state legislature wouldn't be able to block the elected representatives and send its own. The matters discussed in that article would only help the person won the necessary votes to win the electoral college. I know that the article came out a while back but I can still remember it, it's like when we were discussing On The Silver Lake and you kept going "how can you lot remember that bit?" some of us just can I guess, and I notice how each time you refer to that article your description goes slightly further from what it was and slightly further towards what you want (or possibly misremember) it to have said.what isnt? what are you talking about?
To be honest this is more a reply to MB than you so you don't necessarily need to follow it.im lost
Movie idea: a remake of Crank, but with @luka instead of Jason Statham, and his head will explode if he goes for more than five minutes without reading a blog post by some apocalyptic loonie who's obsessed with the Illuminati.yeah, im a connesuier of cranks. Leo only reads the New York Times so he relies on me to hook him up with
the underground shit
So Johnson is playing the long game? That sounds ridiculous in itself.The bedwetting/brainwashed half of the country and the monomaniacal scientists will be frothing at the bit for more restrictions as the situation worsens over the next month, while the freedom-lovers will have less of a leg to stand on (it will be said): opposition to lockdown will be much feebler as a result.
It's also about rich elites making sure they get theirs – international travel, clean water, security, good food, comfortable housing, roaring log fires – while the rest of us own nothing and are happy. It's a power grab and a material grab. They've looked at forecasts and found a way to shit on the rest of us while minimising the impact on them.
There was an article that you and Mr IQ said proved there was a massive conspiracy to fix the election to get rid of Trump. I pointed out that the article in fact said the opposite - that there was a conspiracy of sorts to prevent Trump's people from fixing the election, in fact to ensure that the election was free and fair, which Trump then lost because the other guy got a lot more votes - and you got really mad and started calling me a fuckwit over and over.what isnt? what are you talking about?
Johnson has to play the long game cos he's part of a gang that is playing the long game (although not really that long a game as they're rolling out these changes very quickly)So Johnson is playing the long game? That sounds ridiculous in itself.
But the wider point here is the conspiracy theory method, if the government do A they are obviously trying to push you into their trap... and, if they do Not A then it's clear evidence of the same thing.
