Warning: controversial content.

This is a rant about the human psyche, about herd behaviour and about a deep rooted fear for the unknown. Of course this blog article is about the corona virus, because everything is about the corona virus. Why not join the biggest media-snowball ever? (This is factually true: in human history there has never been more notifications in the media about one specific subject). In this essay the approach is not about the coronavirus itself, because statistically it is not at all relevant for a possible apocalypse, but rather on how people behave under the influence of fear. And what above all is interesting: that what is socially accepted can totally change from one moment to the other. That is what truly needs to be feared.

Okay, first the statistics. At the moment of writing there are 6.500 deaths and 80.000 recovered. This is a 7% death rate. What is remarkable is that from those 6.500 by far the biggest group are older people (80+) and people who already had an ailment. Adding up those people who are asymptomatic and the relative death rate goes down. Remarkable here again is that the chances that somebody dies with a good immune system is practically zero (https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/coronavirus-age-sex-demographics/). In other words, statistically this virus resembles the influenza strain quit a lot. And still, the reaction on this is one of immense proportions. How could that happen?
There is only one possible explanation: this virus is a media-virus. And everyone seems to be infected by it. If, for months on end, you read the news on a subject that intensifies exponentially (not the virus), watch video clips of people in septic shock, everywhere pops up self-proclaimed experts who predict problems of mythical proportions, and when you are reminded every 10 minutes that we are on the verge of an apocalypse when nothing will be done, then you will reflexively believe in the seriousness of the situation. The power of the screen is big. And in the swamp of doomsday news headers one might drown easily.

Dictatorship in disguise

The rule is: at times of collective fear all the heads turn in the direction of the government with the polite yet urgent exclamation: 'Yo dude, do something about this!' And what always and everywhere happens is exactly that, with the only instruments the government knows: commandment and prohibition. All of the fundamental freedoms of humanity are being tossed in the trash can under the guise of national health or national security or whateverthefuck else. It's no different with the coronavirus issue. Under the influence of months of media training most people are even eager to give up their freedoms. People who are a bit more cautious and express themselves critically on these forced measures, are being stigmatized as lunatics and later most likely as murderers (mark my words).
The measures taken now openly show in what kind of political state we live: a dictatorship in disguise. In a state of emergency the green light is always given to what formerly would have been viewed upon as a far-reaching infringement of human freedom. The justificaton for this is not to be found in a moral consideration, the justification comes down to what the masses think and desire at this very moment, hypnotised by a reinforced and repetitive process consisting of horrible media images. And if there is one truth that is always trustworthy: the masses are never right.

'If all the others jump off a bridge...'

Mass behaviour could simply be explained by the psychological assumption that when everyone is engaged in something, then it will be serious. That when the government takes such drastic measures, then there must be something going on, right? This psychological assumption could be turned around as well: when almost nobody is engaged in something, then it isn't serious. That when the government takes no measures against this, then there is nothing going on, right? This is psychology 101: most people take decisions based on this rhetoric to clear their conscience and to sooth their mind. That is the reason why people are totally okay with a temporary prison for everyone on earth; only through the total acceptance of this rhetoric are they able to mentally adapt to the 180 degrees rotation that is taking place now.
The most frightening, however, is not that people react a certain way or that they base their decision-making on this psychological rhetoric (although very stupid indeed), but that the person is believing so much in the justification of their world view that they want to impose it on their fellow man. And yes, I dare to say it: collectivistic thinking is the root of all evil. This is so deeply ingrained in humanity that the advice to children should actually be: 'If all the others jump off a bridge, then I want you to jump too.'


Hypocrites, all of you!

Directed to the people who find it all of a sudden totally normal to be in forced home isolation, who find it totally normal to see that nobody is allowed to travel between countries, who find it totally normal to see people be criminalised for just walking outside, who find it totally normal that people beat each other up for the last four-layered toilet roll, who find it totally normal that all of humanity stands two meters apart, who find it totally normal that all acts have to be done with a constant post-flow of antibacterial gel, who find it totally normal to regard everyone else as a potential suspect, to the people who regard this huge social upheavel as totally normal, and to those who actively condemn the other for the fact that they find this all a bit theatrical: where were you two years ago? Where were you with your thoughts when the biggest flu epidemic of the last thirty years was taking place? Where were you when more than half a million people worldwide died of the consequences of influenza? Where was your call for closed schools and closed borders? Why weren't you choosing for social isolation to prevent infecting the elderly of society? It could have happened easily with the incubation period of influenza. Why did nobody take any measures to 'flatten the curve'? Right, because there wasn't written a word about it in the news papers. And your reaction at the time was a contrasting: 'Geez, it's that time of the year again.'

Imagine yourself in an empty corridor. Light shines through at the end of it. There is a shadow on the wall in front of you. It moves. You hear loud rumbling. You see the shadow getting bigger and you realise something is coming. You start to sweat. You see the shadow becoming even bigger and it looks like an animal, perhaps a hyena? The howling becomes louder, yes it's howling. The shadow is getting the shape of a bear now, with open mouth, ready to attack. Fragments of torn human flesh go through your head. Drops of sweat run over your forehead and fall off the tip of your nose. The shadow is coming closer; you are aware that the beast can step around the corner any moment now. Only it's not a bear anymore, but a colossal dragon. You do a quick Hail Mary, just when a little dog comes running up to you. The light made the shadow bigger and the echos amplified the barking. That is Corona, the media-virus.


P.s. When we have to undergo a forced stay-at-home isolation anyway, then I propose the following measure: in the coming month everyone is obligated to smoke at least 85 milligrams of DMT. I heard that this could possibly be the vaccin against corona.

  1. Dank voor deze wijze woorden en ik ga het meerdere keren lezen om een beetje te ontstressen.

  2. Klopt. Helemaal mee eens. We weigeren de griepprik en doen wat we elke winter doen. Als het rustig is boodschappen doen en hoestende zieke mensen uit de weg gaan. Mijden van grote groepen mensen. Dat moet voldoende zijn. Ik word ziek van de Nederlandse zenders. Gezond verstand gebruiken is het enige goede in deze zieke linkse wereld.

  3. het gekke is ook dat het geen specifiek Nederiglands gebeuren is maar wereldwijd! Van China, Azie, Australie, Europa naar Usa. Van Afrika of Canada of Zuid-Amerika noch Rusland hoor je weinig. En de reakties erop lijken wel collectief afgesproken, bijna allemaal hetzelfde.

  4. Walgelijk die superhysterie ik wordt strontziek van het woord Corona man man man
    wat hebben we toch een paar Qut generaties voortgebracht al die stomme media steeds brengt alleen maar ellende , ik vind het bedenkelijke nieuwsvirus nog veel erger dan het coronavirus en ik weiger me f..g bang te laten maken . Hulde aan de schrijver ik denk er exact zo over. Mensen enge domme wezens in grote groepen… laat staan als massa

  5. De corona hype:
    Eerst een paar feiten.
    1. Het corona virus is niet nieuw! Het bestaat al jaren, zo niet decennia.
    2. Dit virus veroorzaakt zgn “‘common cold”‘ verschijnselen i.e verkoudheid.
    3.Het is een ssRNA virus en dus geen bacterie, wat wil zeggen, dat het zich niet kan vermenigvuldigen zonder gastheer. De gastheer is de menselijke cel.
    Virus zijn obligaat intracellulair wat wil zeggen, dat ze een cel nodig hebben om te infecteren en om zich te vermenigvuldigen. Bacterien hebben dat niet nodig.
    4. Het menselijk immuun systeem bestaat uit T- en B -Lymfocyten, alleen de T- lymfocyten zijn betrokken bij de afweer tegen viridae. ( denk aan HIV, waarbij de patient pas ziek wordt op t moment dat een bepaalde subcategorie T cellen, de CD4, onder de 500/mm3 bloed komt).
    Ook HIV patienten kunnen jaren symptoom loos leven en soms ook het virus kwijt raken.
    5. Corona heeft geen eigenschappen, die bij een goed werkend immuunsysteem een patient zo ziek kan maken, dat hij sterft.
    6. Bij chronisch zieken, ouderen en patienten, die pillen gebruiken zoals prednisolon etc etc, kan het virus meer grip krijgen. Dat komt omdat de T -lymfocyten, die de virus infectie opruimen, minder goed werken.
    7. 80 % van de patienten heeft geen klachten of slechts lichte.
    8. Het COVID 19 virus, zou SARS kunnen veroorzaken, dit is een ernstige longinfectie, maar dat kan een griep ook. Influenza kan ook ernstige longproblemen veroorzaken en ook de dood.
    Alles kan. Maar in de praktijk is het maar een kleine groep die overlijdt.
    9. De Ophef die nu ontstaat over dit virus, is en niet nodig en benadrukt te veel dat mensen gaan overlijden.
    In italie zijn 4000 doden te betreuren. Maar in Italie, is de resistentie tegen antibiotica, ook vele malen hoger dan hier.
    Een virus is niet te behandelen met antibiotica, maar indien een patient een virale infectie oploopt, kan er een zgn bacteriele superinfectie bijkomen. Door het virus kan de long en met name de kleinere luchtwegen, worden geinfecteerd met bacterien.
    Deze zijn gevoelig voor antibiotica, maar in italie is de resistentie dusdanig hoog, dat veel patienten uiteindelijk overlijden aan een bacterie en niet aan het virus per se.

  6. In dezen is het wel vreemd dat de grootste voorvechters van een lockdown, de strengste en engste maatregel, Baudet en Widers zijn…

  7. Je hebt geen flauw benul als je dit met de griep golf van 2 jaar geleden vergelijkt, en intellectueel erg oneerlijk als bij de vele herhalende zinnetjes je niet zet “Waar waren toen alle mensen die, voor een normale griep, op de IC belandde?”

    Want dat mist er in je verhaal…

  8. Eindelijk, dacht dat ik de enige was… dit stuk is een verademing.

    Er is overal waar ik mijn gedachten ventileer wel iemand die mij vermanend toespreekt. Waarna de rest hard meeknikt en me duidelijk maakt dat men niet is gediend van deze praat…want het zal jouw vader zijn en het ergste moet nog komen,

    Maar wat te denken van:
    Zzpers, ondernemers in midden /kleinbedrijf en hun medewerkers, zij krijgen het zwaar, er gaat zoveel kapot nu.

    Nog niemand gehoord over de ellende die deze mensen nu wordt aangedaan door het stop zetten van de economie en ze als een klein kind min of meer thuis op te sluiten.

    Te weten stress, uitzichtloosheid, faillissementen, echtscheidingen, depressies, (huiselijk)geweld en ja zelfmoord.

  9. Zo voel ik het ook. Bangmakerij…. de economische en psygische schade is groot….te groot…..

  10. Ik heb alle symptomen C19 gehad behalve koorts, maar tijdlijn klopt niet, was in het weekend van carnaval 21, 22, 23 febr. maar virus was 5 dagen daarvoor zelfs nog niet in Italië gesignaleerd.

    Wanneer ik zo ziek zou worden door Covid19 geef ik de voorkeur aan wegmaken om nooit meer wakker te worden boven opname op een intensive-care afdeling van een ziekenhuis.

    Mensen gaan dood aan Covid19, anders zouden ze doodgaan aan een andere griep of wellicht een verkeersongeval. Twee jaar geleden 10.000 overleden door griep.

    Hoe verantwoordelijk ben je om een miljoenen maatschappij te vernietigen om eventueel wellicht 1000 à 2000 mensen een andere doodsoorzaak te geven.
    Komt nog bij dat de meeste geïntubeerde patiënten bij alsnog overleven veel minder kwaliteit van leven zullen hebben.

    Gaat die Rutte straks zelf toegeven dat ie op het beslissende moment verkeerd gereageerd heeft, of moeten we hem ervoor berechten?

  11. Fijn deze wijze woorden.
    Ik zei vandaag nog
    Angst overheerst
    We moeten het weer in balans krijgen
    Ik hoop door dit te zeggen
    Mensen nadenken. ….
    En minder bang worden
    Ik werk al jaren aan het opbouwen van weerstand op een natuurlijke manier met een beetje hulp van supplementen

  12. Toen de Amerikanen met genetisch gemanipuleerd voedsel kwamen zei heel Europa, daar doen we niet aan mee. Maar nu we het ingespoten krijgen staat iedereen in de rij.
