No. From a pathological standpoint, our age is determined neither by bacteria nor viruses, but by neurons. Neurological illnesses such as depression, ADHD, runaway narcissism, and burnout are the hallmarks of the early 21st century.

We do live in a highly dangerous environment of contagion. Yet it isn’t viral contagion, it’s from neurons. In an Internet-connected digital world, the real pandemics that sweep the world are mental rather than physical illnesses, and we have built no defence against them.
The 18th and 19th centuries saw unprecedented technological and social advances in conquering physical illness. Now that we stand almost invulnerable, it is like we are willingly subjecting ourselves to our one true weakness: mass psychosis.
2020/21 has been a historical pandemic. Not of COVID – a mild virus no stronger than the flu – but of weakness and hysteria which has no known quarantine zone and passes from NY to Beijing as easily as the medieval plague. The future is a boundless ground zero of mental illness.
Who flourishes in such environments? The mentally weak. If you’ve ever interacted with Downs Syndromes you will know their dull Mongoloid rule adherence. We live in a world where mongs in high-viz jackets and “I’M VACCINATED!” stickers rule over the non-chromosomal challenged.
Our current rulers. Mentally retarded epsilons who can barely even articulate “CAN I SEE YOUR VACCINATION PASS PLEASE DURRRR” and who by design cannot see beyond a narrow set of mong processes. Tardocracy. Your yellow-jacketed high-visibility masters. Fuck this gay earth.
Every fucking shop, stadium, and restaurant has a plethora of these intellectually crippled shoggoths posted on the gate, blocking your entry with their fucking lanyard and their fucking high-visibility jacket, stealing 1-2k a month just to mumble warnings about fucking masks.
The useless, the stupid, the genuinely cunting retarded, are promoted to an undeserved station where they have a whipping hand over those with the correct number of 46 chromosomes. Bring your tanks to Kiev, Putin, let’s fucking end this piss earth 2022 with fire and nukes. G’night.
Jesus, look at my own degradation in how I wrote that thread in 2019 compared to how I am writing now. I was lucid and erudite. Now I am just angry, typing expletives, and rather than argue what is wrong with the world I just want to now see it on fire. I am part of the decline.
