Resisting against coronavirus laws

I've started to absolutely hate the police. The first time in my life I feel genuine hate for something.

Do not hate them. The Stanford prison experiment showed us that we can all turn like that. Which why we now see even women behaving like that. People enrolling in the police and army forces need educating about the true nature of the masters they serve.

What these past couple of years has shown us is that for huge swathes of society, the difference between being civilized and moronic, heartless brutes is paper thin. What made most angry was the lady police officer with the pony tail flexing, while the little dog was look up at her in a desperate bid to appeal to her feminine instincts. Sorry dog, that's been wiped.
This is where we are after all those hundreds of years revered post-Enlightenment "progress".

That experiment was complete garbage science. There were constant interventions from outside, the guards were not told they were subjects and were given precise instructions on how to torture the prisoners, and they knew what results the study was trying to find. It was a politically motivated anti-prison study.


The real reason cops act like that is simple. It's because they're paid extreme amounts of money with good benefits to basically stand around - they don't even have to arrest real criminals anymore in our postmodern world in many jurisdictions. They're paid much more than most of them can make in any other industry, and they know it, and there was even an Australian cop who explained that to an anti lockdown protester a while ago. They're mercenaries. I knew a guy in college who was really smart but violent and an alcoholic, he graduated top 3 in his engineering major and went to work in the field in a power plant. Later he learned he would make a lot more money as a state trooper, so after only a few months he went to the police academy and now that's what he does.

I agree regarding the Stanford experiment, I'd read somewhere it was rigged. However, I don't believe money alone explains the behaviour of so many cops. Most cops are not sociopaths. Like me, when I had duties that made me feel really uncomfortable, they mostly rationalise their way out of any moral dilemma. People convince themselves about many things in order to sleep at night. Often it'll be that they're acting for the common good, or simply that those are the orders and it's not my job to question orders. Which is why utilitarianism, especially wrapped around an ideology, is such a dangerous moral stance and has led to so many atrocities.

True. An average cop in Germany makes 3100 Euro before taxes, and gets a state pension. An entry level engineer will make about 3900 Euro a month. The police will take on people even without a high school diploma in some cases.

Huge protests yesterday, in France, Germany, Austria, Montreal, Czech Republic, South Korea, Italy, Spain, Lebanon, other places.
Can't post vids it'll overflow the page

Big German cop suffers embarassing fall trying to catch shifty little protester kid:

NYC protester says they are the army of God who must and will pursue them (pursue the vaccinators)


I like how loud this Italian protest is:

I have joined several protests but I felt like I added nothing. What does my resentment add?

In my case now I just left my home country. I noticed I found it hard to life in lockdowns. It depressed me and made me feel lonely. The constant stream of defeatism. Or cognitive dissonance. I took the stuff in my car to be able to live and work abroad for at least a month.

Driving to southern Portugal. I'll do my mass. Brought my Bible. I lost the joy of life back home. The fear porn. The compliance. It's a hard pill the swallow the country where I come from isn't the country where I grew up. The streets are full of Muslims and flooded with Uber eats bikers. I think many people don't even leave their house anymore.. The shops and cafes closed. And instead of being a nation of free people we comply.

I chose a spiritual life over my hedonistic life when I became a Catholic. But I can't find that isolated. I hit the road. On the one hand sad, I seriously feeing like a refugee, and on the other hand relieved. Im done with an elitist keeping me in my house.

Don't know if it's resistance. At least that's the path i take now under this internationalist authoritarian rule.

In my twenties I loved On the road by Jack Kerouac. It's different now but the same. A god desiring nomad now. Desiring to meet like minded souls.

Protests are important to build morale of other people and show the gov that we object but the real resistance is opting out of as many fields as you can (vote with your money, do anything to starve the beast) and sabotage like destroying qr codes (throw as many sand and wrenches as you can into their gears).

There was a pretty good size rally in my hometown in the summer of 2020, it was actually enormous with all types of business people, locals, all forming a caravan which stretched 10km between towns at one point. It was really a white pill to know that there were so many people against the whole charade. The attitude was confident, jovial, and there was a ton of unity. The only downside was the speakers were boring local politicians (unelected) and long winded nurses, service men rather than local people.

Until then, I felt so much more isolated. I realized in the protest then that so many local people are fully against this, even if they are wearing masks when they go to buy their groceries. The TV really slants your view sometimes, combined with intended isolation methods, and many people worrying about offending covidians.
