Tessa Lena: Australia

Can you hear the alarm? The New Abnormal is kind of disgusting.

This video from Australia is extremely bothersome. I usually try to focus on the positive (which is why I consciously choose to not write often, or at all, about things like healthy athletes dropping dead in unusual numbers in short temporal proximity to receiving the product, or about previously healthy children developing acute heart conditions or starting to fall apart while no one knows how to help them, and so on.) I don’t write about those things because I find the scenario of misleading and hurting the innocent so appalling that I feel too emotional to write about it in an even-headed manner—and since we need to trasncend the fear and collectively get out of this state of abusing and silencing human beings, I focus on what we can do to stay strong and remember our truth.

However, this video from Australia is just like a hint at a classic artsy horror movie in which, to the sound of beautiful music, people are getting hurt. (What I am referring to as the following: In my teen years, I was tempted by my film connoisseur friends to watch the famous art film, “The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover.” The visuals of torture, set to an exquisite soundtrack, were so disturbing to my senses that at some point I shut the TV and never finished watching it. Needless to say, I don’t like Peter Greenaway, and I don’t care how famous of a film director he is.)

But what’s happening in Australia is happening to live human beings like you and I, in real life. It is not a work of art, and no longer a drill. (Remember how early in the pandemic, the WHO suggested going to people’s homes and removing them? And how it was mentioned in the passing and then kind of hushed away as a weird conspiracy theory?)


About michael burgwin

A child of the peace and antiWar movements, a Truther with self-diagnosed Opposition Defiance Disorder, formerly politically liberal tho now politically marooned, and Post-Doomer, on any issue, I trend to the conspiracy side, sort through the absurd, fantastical and insane, until I find firm ground usually located just the other side of the censorship firewall of propaganda and orthodoxy, dogma, and other either / or thinking.
