The Coronavirus and The Tyranny of “experts”
It is normal for one to rationally infer that the foundation of what could be vaguely described as “public opinion” is a understanding of what ought to constitute authority. People think of political authority as being dualistic in nature because of the converse semantic that arises(i.e. A pair of words with opposite points of view such as above and below) which encourages people to think of the government and the governed as one that has credibility while the other(the governed) are ignorant.
This converse semantic or dualistic starting point causes confusion over what constitutes credibility and what constitutes power. Credibility begets power if the Barbarian King is a skilled swordsman, archer, horse rider and tactician. The King is powerful not by virtue of his mental or physical toughness, or by his ability to intimidate others due to face value assumptions made about his strength. Power is displayed in the effects of his ability on the battlefield.
I use the Barbarian King as an example because it is highly unlikely that he would be King of a warlike tribe due to petty favoritisms. Such a tribe does not have any inherent interest in choosing favorites due to their mutual thirst for victory in any conflict. Hence the need for credibility.
If a tribesman becomes envious of the present King, and claims that he could become the Kings successor by referring to his superior physical strength and power, he is unlikely to succeed the king because he does not have the skill to use his power with the right application.
Due to most of modern society living in the city and on the outskirts, which are the greater boundaries of the city known as the suburbs, we do not directly see the effects of ill-conceived laws, by-laws and city maintenance practices as we would in a small town or a tribe. Government derives its power from the indirectness of its operations and by drawing the publics attention away from the major issues and towards the minor and trivial issues(i.e. social justice, systemic racism, sexism, pro-feminism, anti-patriarchy, climate justice etc).
In order to draw ones attention from the major issues(i.e. police spending and brutality, unjust laws and wars, collusion with the Chinese military, government debt etc) one must make the media the central publisher of propaganda and useless triviality. Mainstream media is “main-stream” because the government has made it so! One cannot argue that the government merely funds the media for the public good because they would not fund something that they had no say in controlling. This is why there is a large gap in the material resources of independent media and the mainstream media. The mainstream requires the finest and most expensive cameras and lighting equipment in order infuse high quality images with persuasive verbiage(way in which something is expressed).
The media’s job is to represent and express the importance of government without ever presenting us with a credible rationale(by way of journalism) of why we should support not just government, but the non-sensical laws produced by it. The government has deliberately produced a large infrastructure of media to take the onus off of them to answer for unjust laws. The media’s job is to hand feed the public misinformation about laws under the guise of clarification. They are able to this by bringing in the “experts” who merely consolidate the narrative constructed by the media.
The consolidation of narratives via the expert is the foundation for the current coronavirus proto-communism we now find ourselves in. The government and the police can break the law because “public health” says so-despite having no lawful authority. Just ask sniveling Sinopoli, the disgraced Toronto police chief who said he “had” to illegally close Adamson BBQ because the housewives and effeminate beta-males of Toronto Public Health said so. O’ sniveling Sinopoli! I must ask, why did you sound and look so pathetic and unconvincing when you ordered Adamson BBQ shutdown? I do not believe you to be an ignoramus but a coward.
Sniveling Sinopoli’s decision to close Adamson BBQ was not based on medical advice but due to the stigmatization caused by the media. Public opinion is shaped by the media who present messages from the apparently all-powerful premier Doug “do little” Ford , Brian “putrid” Pallister or Jason “turncoat” Kenney in-conjunction with “expert” medical advice due to an apparent emergency. The word emergency does not have a specific locative semantic role, the word is used to say that there is a generalized distribution of a virus that effects everyone when it really only affects those in government run long term care homes.
The experts are present on the political stage only as representational qualifiers. That is to say, they only make an appearance to confirm the certainty of what their political whip crackers are saying to ensure that their masters have qualified immunity when making non sensical orders. The doctors may be experts in their own practice, but does public health overrule an economic analysis of law or civil liberties? Of course not! We know what has happened when the “expert” adheres to an orthodoxy of control, it culminates in prohibitions, eugenics, involuntary psychiatric treatment, medical experiments, burning of witches(aka innocents), sacrifices to idols which are said to be “Gods” etc.
“By virtue of exchange, one man’s prosperity is beneficial to all others”-Frederic Bastiat.
If we pay to exchange with the expert, then he will be more cognizant of his reputation by benefitting you as opposed to when he delivers messages which are of no consequence to his bank account. When funds are attained involuntarily, there is no limit to how many “experts” you can bribe ad infinitum.
