Ghosts, Not Quite Ghosts
Beyond madness, it’s evil. Only the most moronic or complicit can excuse this anti-life agenda. There are no missteps here. They’re squeezing the life out of us, step by step, deliberately.
You should see what is going on currently in countries such as Austria, Germany…
All places locked …
It’s all madness. It has nothing to do with any disease …
But that’s not what’s craziest about it, but the fact that most people simply accept it matter of fatly as just another bullshit they have to deal with. I guess, the more totalitarian you get, the more people accept it. Not necessarily because they believe it, but …
I can see this going on forever.
I have never lived in a Communist country, but it seems to me that it must have been similar. Although perhaps even the commies were not such control freaks.
Having lived (and been born) in the USSR, no, the commies were never such control freaks. In fact, everything was quite loose and shoddy, also in terms of enforcement. If you had a friend or a spare bottle of vodka you could get away with anything, including going anywhere and stealing anything in (always) state-owned companies.
‘…. I have never lived in a Communist country, but it seems to me that it must have been similar. Although perhaps even the commies were not such control freaks….’
Many communist ‘dictatorships’ were much more free than the US or England today. I lived in one such dictatorship for a few years in the 1980s. It was a vibrant free society compared to the US today.
Old Commie joke.
