As more of the covid scandal is happening, I know full well that life will eventually find it’s way to normal, meaning that the society will continue to function as before.
Could be a while, with new waves of the virus being announced, with no explanation what is happening, really. We don’t know what are we fighting.
For now I have to quarantine everywhere I travel.
Life will get back to normal I learned this under communist regime in Eastern Europe. I saw military in my little town with tanks and soldiers with guns and they still couldn’t prevail.
The people did in the end, it’s all up to us.
The quarantine rules change and confuse, showing the incompetency of the governments clearly on display. We can complain all we want, but these are the people we chose to rule, this is the best, as a society, we could come up with and voted into office.
Sad as it is.
Businesses will re-open, and if they do it “en masse” government clerks will not be able to stop it.
In the end money will decide everything. The idiotic concept of universal guarantied income is just that - idiotic, one of the worst things you can do to a population. It is a part of the “great reset” concept but it kills the creative spirit of a nation. Money has to be hard earned, not given.
The covid rules of traveling are changing frequently, and there are questioning people’s trust in the authorities. Trust me, I just flew across the ocean and went through border control. Confusion rules big time.
Then I had a police car coming to my place to verify if I respect the quarantine, which I do, but I don’t like to be followed and be checked on. Besides – the official website said that I don’t need to quarantine where I am right now. This is a breakdown in government structure, and this is not a small thing.
Perhaps this is the one thing about me – I don’t like to be followed, in every sense of the word.
I don’t use bankcards if I can use cash, I don’t post on social media where I am; don’t mention it in the essays either. Never I mentioned a person’s name, or a city, and you would be surprised where I am writing this essay tonight, and you’ll never find out (it's a nice place).
I like the privacy aspect, it is big on me and I think we all deserve it.
Now, let’s move to a lighter subject – I spoke to a friend of mine who just got a new Honda, the Africa Twin, a very strong and good motorcycle. Motorcycle rides give you freedom in a world that came to a stand still. The rides also requires your full attention, you know - left side is for riding, right for breaking and then you just go wild, like 2.5 seconds 0-100. Just lean down on the tank, so the front wheel doesn’t do up.
The Africa Twin can do off roads too, so you get the best of both worlds.
My Yamaha is faster still.
It is up to all of us to make the world going again, can’t relay on the authorities anymore. There is some agenda behind this covid nonsense, but we should be able to fight it.
It bothers me, but it is what it is.
Now I am out.
