To answer your question, I will raise another one. Did the post 911 police state and erosions of civil liberties went away? Nope, it just got extended and improved.
What is the reasoning for this? Isn't the entire point to keep people away from campus?
Considering the news get more and more filtered and the experts and high status opinions say support this great reset flu, people will just take it.The COVID-19 lockdowns and erosions of civil liberties were very sudden and it laid out the full force of it all up front and in a way that has been continuously affecting American citizens every day and night for the past several months. There was no time to acclimate to these drastic measures and a previously strong economy went into a severe recession because of it. It was way too much done way too fast.
This has not happened once, even when Leftists are demonstrably guilty. Even if Trump wins, it won't happen. They will blame it on the rest of the country being racist sexist fascist nahzees.Certain far-left groups will be scapegoated
Isn't "making the pandemic end quicker" the whole point of the mask talismans (or at least the perception that you're doing your part in that)? If you believe that they work, you'd hate anyone who doesn't because "those damn plague rats are going to make the virus last forever".Trump has a vested interest in trying to end the lockdowns since it's obvious that anyone who's not a neolib corporate bigwig hates the lockdowns. Trump is all about ego and being seen as the guy who finally helped bring the malaise of 2020 to an end and let people go back to having a social life will net him a lot of praise and get him that ego high he so craves. The economy will also get better if they're done away with and that will also boost his ego
Even the beardo bugmen and dangerhairs who trumpet their love of SCIENCE! and sing the praises of social distancing while wearing their mask talismans are mainly doing a mix of virtue signaling and coping, and I'd say a lot of them are only doing it so they can make the pandemic end quicker.
Plus the fact that Trump has made good on his promises of trade war with China, no new hot wars (and trying to end the ones we were already in) and locking up pedos is a lot better than I'd expect from him or any other political leader regardless of party.

The whole thing is perfect to
a) demoralize the general public, beat them into submission
b) energize their own base/useful idiots
The whole thing will be channeled into a political false choice where "your side didn't do enough" is the only acceptable thing to say. Consider the weight on one hand, the "war on terror" thing was about two low poly skyscrapers and a few thousand of dead people and a good PR campaign to attack... Iraq? Now we have a year long propaganda campaign globally where people can't even go outside. There won't be efficient opposition because people just get used to everything. So, the politically active will be caught up in more extreme forms of burgoise identity politics so scratch their political itch while you can't really adress the small-medium business holocaust that is currently happening combined with pushing the wealth up to the top.
If the Great Reset Flu was not a total hoax, then it was well played. For example, normalizing working from home opens up possibilities to further ride down wages by having your "from home worker" from Bangladesh and you will have even less way to organize unions because you don't know the randos in your workplace. etc.

"We dindu nuffin" is inexorable from leftist thought.

I just don't see it happening. Neoliberals will not, at this point, ever admit that Trump or his base was right about something. And the neolibs agree with the Woke Left in principle, just not in timetable.The Woke Left won't ever admit their wrongs, but the neoliberal bigwigs that control the Democratic Party and the major corporations are far more likely to use them as a scapegoat by tying them into preexisting narratives since they view the Woke Left as useful idiots
Trump needs to destroy Xi Xinping to save america. he was our leader, then at the davos group he said, three years ago, '"I will destroy Trump, I will work with hollywood." And Kiji Pink said "I wanna overthrow American democracy, I want to repudiate it, I want to discredit it" and Gigi Ping admits he admires Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. Okay.The Globohomo mess seems to be getting close to Maoism attitude of constant revolution and hunting of dissidents.
Just because school propagandized that to have opression it must look like 1984, that doesn't mean this soft post-totalitarian mess is any more "free".
People won't get gulaged because there is no need for excess manual labor and it's more efficient to delegate social control to third parties ie. NGOs and corporations.
Because according to big brain conservatives if the boot stepps on your face is a PMC, then it's fine.
Yeah, the same way North Korea is a People's Republic which happens to be democratic, a republic and for the people. Buzzwords in politics are as old as politics itself. Even the ancient athenians were concerned with democracy when they subjugated their old allies in the Athenian league.Trump needs to destroy Xi Xinping to save america. he was our leader, then at the davos group he said, three years ago, '"I will destroy Trump, I will work with hollywood."

You can smell the tinfoil hat from this thread a mile away.
Sorry you have to wear a mask when you need to shop. So hard you life is the worst.
I know you're probably a shitposter but I think the "Great Reset" is a crock of shit and is little more than an activist pipe dream that's given the illusion of credibility because the UN decided it was a good thing to virtue signal about. I'm mainly just using their own logic to get them to see why these lockdowns can't feasibly be kept in the long-term.
I do think the mask talismans are retarded and the malignant dangerhairs and beardos who get all super mad about it are annoying, but I'll wear a mask when I go out shopping with no problem.
Don't you see how fucking retarded you sound.
It is a fucking wobbling from one retarded point to the next putting little lines between them in an effort to connect the dots on some GRAND THING. When in realty it is nothing more then dumb luck and people who don't know shit trying to fix things.
Who the fuck gives a shit what the UN thinks. They have no power and no one gives a shit about them any more.
I live in one of these as you would call it "Wokistans" and we are not locking down any thing. Yes there are some stupid shit, but it is not some stupid ploy. It is stupid politicians wanting to be seen as being active. It is dumb, but it is not malice.
My understanding is that the school wants to minimize travel; or at least that is their excuse for going online-only after Thanksgiving break. I also am going to a smaller regional campus, so they can actually social distance non-gened classes without running into space constraints.What is the reasoning for this? Isn't the entire point to keep people away from campus?
Some schools also made you read brave new world and it's a good example of how a free seeming and benevolent seeming governance can be equally terrifying.Just because school propagandized that to have opression it must look like 1984, that doesn't mean this soft post-totalitarian mess is any more "free".
I mainly posed hypotheticals to point out that if the corporate bigwigs really wanted a "Great Reset", then they'd do something a lot more efficient like a few small surface changes over a period of time than try to hoax a pandemic and do everything all at once up front
This is pretty much a case of a novel virus becoming a pandemic and political opportunists deciding to try and do a Hail Mary play to capitalize on it instead of letting a crisis go to waste
You had non-stop protests in France. Longer and more sustained even for a people that like to protest. Right wing resurgance in Italy. Brexit. The Netherlands biggest party last election is a new party that has only existed for about 5 years, started by a guy who studied under Scruton and went to dinner with Jared Taylor. We too had non-stop protests.
The US elected Trump, a candidate that came from outside the two political parties.
The pandemic has allowed government to put people in a state of constant fear and to be allowed to crackdown on protests in the interest of health and safety (they don't crack down on BLM and extinction rebellion and similar kind of protests).
Whether they seized an opportunity or the virus itself was planned (it's hard not be suspicious looking at Gates' work the last 8 years as well as the corporate restructering at 50 corps that had a CEO switch when the virus first hit). Whether it was created or not, and whether it's really dangerous or not and whether the response is overreactive or not; it's completely in the interest of those who's grasp on political power seemed to be slipping.
You know, the horse is comfortable veering off to the side, but a sharp pull on the reins reminds him who is in charge.
In fact, if there are sweeping changes you want to make, you of course do it during a crisis. That's not the time for small changes, that's the time for sweeping changes. It's alright to take 7 steps forward, even if you have to take 2 back. People don't have the attention and strength to fight things wholesale.
