Covid-19 (the scene is dead)



I don’t care about Covid-19 as an issue—I prefer psychology to virology, if you want to put it like that—but the chronology tells us about the left-right divide (female-male).

Stage 1: in around January 2020, images begin to circulate from China online—people collapse on the street, huge modular hospitals are constructed overnight, satellite heat maps show crematoria working round the clock, people are barred from leaving cities, martial law seems to be in effect.


Analysis: at this stage, the “Pepe right”—the “nutballs”, “conspiracy theorists”, and “panty-sniffing perverts”—conclude that there is a considerable problem. It could be “the big one”—some civilisation-altering event. At this point, I looked around my cul-de-sac and wondered if 1/3 or 1/4 of the people would die. After all, the Chinese government is very secretive—how bad is it really? It was also mooted for the first time it was a bioweapon or an escaped experiment from a lab—how bad could that be? (Very).

At this stage, I laid in a large shop online and bought masks, gloves, basic medicines, and other paraphernalia—and toilet roll. Generally, nobody was doing anything in the world at large.


Indeed, the “normie” community held that “it’s just the flu, bro” and the government position was that the situation will be monitored and by use of “computer models” (hallowed technology) we’ll make gradual adjustments to deal with this threat (perhaps nothing will close at all, or hardly anything—“nudge government”).


The general atmosphere is technocratic smugness, “we’ve got this covered”—pity those fools who engage in conspiracy theories and panic (“Of course you don’t need a mask—don’t be silly, the computer models will adjust…no evidence masks work…”).


Stage 2: in around late February to early March, the virus hits the West—the lockdowns begin, the panic shopping begins, the toilet roll runs out, everyone starts to wear a mask (whereas before it was just one or two “panicked” people or “oddballs” now it becomes the norm). This situation lasts for three months or so.

As the lockdown culture deepened, as the government became more and more keen on masks and hand sanitisers and lockdowns, the Pepe-panty-sniffer axis began to entertain doubts about the severity of the virus. At the very moment governments began to buy every ventilator going and nurses started to post “traumatised” selfies of themselves, the “Pepe community” (aka “the reality-adjusted community”) began to suggest it wasn’t as bad as we thought it was going to be.


At this stage, it was clear that nobody on my road was going to die—though they were going to “clap for the NHS” (not that I did)—so the whole “collapse of civilisation” scenario, the whole pariah dogs rummaging through the remains of Sapiens polished off by the Chinese bioweapon scenario, was off. No, it wasn’t “just the flu, bro”—but it wasn’t ultra-bubonic plague either.


Stage 3: by June, the Pepe-based community had decided the whole thing was exaggerated, if not an actual ploy by WEF and their supervillain leader Klaus Schwab (aka Klaus Schwab). This scepticism would only grow and would, down the line, lead to protests about the lockdowns, contempt towards masks (and the virtue-signalling that went along with masks), and scepticism towards the vaccine.

Meanwhile, the government—once so relaxed and “libertarian” about the whole pandemic—became more and more enamoured with lockdowns, masks, and eventually flirted with “zero Covid”.


Finally, at the stage when the Pepe-based community long ago concluded the way the whole affair was handled was incompetent (if not borderline criminal), governments begin to order tentative inquiries about their own responses and politicians make sombre and portentous speeches about how “questions must be asked” and “lessons learned” from the whole fuck-up.

Conclusion: although it has become somewhat mixed up over time, because it has become fashionable on the right to say “I was never fooled, not even in January 2020”, the pattern that emerges is that there are people who are engaged with reality and update their model and their behaviours as reality changes—and there are people who just follow what appears to be fashionable, sometimes these people lock on to what is fashionable in a select group and copy each other like the proverbial chickens (headless).

The model is masculine-feminine, with the government and normies (NPCs) being the women and the Pepe-based community being masculine. To take another example: men often start some project, like F1 motor-racing, and when it starts it has no social cachet and is derided by women (and feminised men) as “saddos in a shed tinkering with their engines” or “losers who don’t know how to socialise properly”.

This continues until the product—whether a car or a band—begins to gain traction, usually with a slightly larger group of men who are not directly involved in the activity but become somewhat interested in it.


As the “clump” grows, as a small particle of grit in a river can attract dirt and grow into a river obstruction, the project eventually reaches the point where women become interested, since these men seem to be popular and therefore high-status (good mates)—at this point the activity is deluged with women and/or feminised men who are there just to “consume” the product and to be near “popular” people or fashionable things.


Now the “scene” becomes decadent and begins to decline—because nobody does it for its own sake or for a practical reason and so it becomes a shallow exercise in popularity, parasitic, and without any substance (nobody really understands the thing they claim to care so much about—they’re just copying the high-status semiotics of the thing because it’s popular). The original charm vanishes. It becomes unreal—an organisation like NASA is at that stage now. Zombie.

You can see the same trend with Covid-19: people who actually paid attention to reality (not the government or normies) were massively worried by the early reports—which looked really bad, looked like “existential risk”. They did things like buy masks and lay in more food and watch the situation carefully.


The government, meanwhile, claimed “it’s just the flu, bro” and refused to suspend air traffic at a time that could have genuinely “stopped the spread”—all faith being put in delicate and holy models (which eventually seemed to devolve to anarchy and decision-making based on Whatsapp groups—if that wasn’t how it was from the start).


By the time the government caught up—or rather started to copy the now outdated views held by people who were watching reality—and began to treat Covid-19 like an existential risk, the Pepe-based community had observed reality and concluded that it wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t “just the flu”, but it wasn’t bubonic plague either.


However, the government, slow to react in the first place, was equally slow to reverse course (the perennial oil tanker metaphor)—even as it became apparent to anyone who was sentient that Covid-19 wasn’t so bad, the government insisted on treating it like a cataclysm (for about two years); and this made it worse than it would have been otherwise.


The whole pattern fits with the general left-right dynamic. There is one side (masculine) that is engaged with reality, changes its behaviour as it makes new observations and deductions about a situation—and there is another side (feminine) that just watches to see what everyone else will do (particularly high-status and/or popular people), then it does that regardless of whether it makes any sense as the situation changes (and not really knowing why they’re doing it—sleepwalking with their eyes open). Hence the government and the normies genuinely are “NPCs”—whereas the based-Pepe community is awake.


It’s the difference between narcissism and reality. So we’ll always ask: “Are you awake, anon—or are you just trying to look good?”
