This Vaccine is a Test

Corporations and government requiring a Covid vaccination on pain of losing employment are testing people to weed them out of their organizations.

They don’t want dissenters, free-thinkers, conservative Christians, people with another opinion, conspiracy believers, or anyone else that goes against the present government’s party line.


Time to get rid of them to find out who is willing to go along with this measure of control. Because there are a lot more controls coming. Along with a telescreen in your home.

I first read 1984 when I was 15 or 16. I’ve now read practically everything Orwell wrote: personal papers, correspondence to his editors, letters to loved ones, the text of essays he wrote while working at the BBC.

He was concerned with Big Brother but long ago we hackers recognized Little Brother: corporations and private enterprise.

Together, Big Brother and Little Brother have plans for you. And it’s all about control.

Do you think I’m wrong? Have you read 1984? It’s moving quickly from fiction to non-fiction.

Government and corporations enjoy exercising power and hiring people who will dominate others.

Orwell was badly bullied at school. Only someone who has been bullied can recognize a bully and understand the sadism underlying what they do. The pure joy a bully gets from beating someone.

We’ve all had that boss who was a complete idiot and knew nothing but was good at enforcing whatever crazy plans a company had.

Because most companies would rather go head long into a bad plan than admit to line employees that the plan was bad.

Ditto the government. They have no idea about Covid and they can’t admit it. They are tired of dissenters, though, and losing control over people who understand that government is clueless.

Follow the science. Which science? The science regarding natural immunity? No? Where has all that talk about herd immunity gone? Did you lose your science? Oh, I’m not supposed to argue.

Time for the Biden government to get their bully on. The people enforcing political correctness and vaccine requirements for them today are just the vanguard of the zealots to come.

For now, let’s identify dissenters. Fire them and send them into a poverty stricken Room 101.

Don’t know what I am talking about?  Someone like O’Brien is going to explain it to you shortly. Because firing you won’t be enough.

“But always—do not forget this, Winston—always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”

Unbelievable? Orwell’s next quotation may be more relatable. Your intelligence and good ideas are no match against strong, stupid, sadistic, and embarrassed people of power who  put in a fist. Like those in governments and corporations.

They know their crippled arguments for things like the vaccine won’t convince you. They can’t win you over with their ill motivated reasons. So they put in the fist like a bully. And they enjoy it.

Here is Orwell writing in Such, Such Were the Joys:

“Football, it seemed to me, is not really played for the pleasure of kicking a ball about, but is a species of fighting. The lovers of football are large, boisterous, nobbly boys who are good at knocking down and trampling on slightly smaller boys. That was the pattern of school life — a continuous triumph of the strong over the weak. Virtue consisted in winning: it consisted in being bigger, stronger, handsomer, richer, more popular, more elegant, more unscrupulous than other people — in dominating them, bullying them, making them suffer pain, making them look foolish, getting the better of them in every way. Life was hierarchical and whatever happened was right. There were the strong, who deserved to win and always did win, and there were the weak, who deserved to lose and always did lose, everlastingly.
