If the pandemic policy response had taken the form of mere advice, we would not be in the midst of this social, economic, cultural, political disaster. What caused the wreckage was the application of political force that was baked into the pandemic response this time in a way that has no precedent in human history.
Must Watch: Putin offers Nuclear Weapons to Everyone
The response relied on compulsion imposed by all levels of government. The policies in turn energized a populist movement, Covid Red Guard that became a civilian enforcement arm. They policed the grocery aisles to upbraid the maskless. Drones swarmed the skies looking for parties to rat out and shut down. A blood lust against non compliers came to be unleashed at all levels of society.
Lockdowns granted some people meaning and purpose, the way war does for some people. The compulsion to bludgeon others trickled down from government to the people. Madness overtook rationality. Once this took place, there was no longer a question of “Two weeks to flatten the curve.” The mania to suppress the virus by ending person-to-person contact extended to two years.
This happened in the US and all over the world. The madness achieved nothing positive because the virus paid no attention to the edicts and enforcers. Ending social and economic functioning, however, shattered lives in countless ways, and continues to do so.
It is precisely because so much about life (and science) is uncertain that civilized societies operate on the presumption of the freedom to choose. That’s a policy of humility: no one possesses enough expertise to presume the right to restrict other people’s peaceful actions.

But with lockdowns and the successor policy of vaccine mandates, we’ve seen not humility but astounding arrogance. The people who did this to us and to billions of people around the world were so darn sure of themselves that they would take recourse to police-state tactics to realize their goals, none of which came to be realized at all, despite every promise that this would be good for us.
It’s the compulsion that’s the source of all the issues. Someone wrote the edicts at someone’s behest. Someone imposed the orders. Those somebodies should be the people who should own the results, compensate the victims, and otherwise accept the consequences for what they have done.
Who are they? Where are they? Why haven’t they stepped up?
If you are going to force people to behave a certain way – to close their businesses, kick people out of their homes, stay away from meetings, cancel vacations, physically separate everywhere – you have to be damn certain that it is the right thing to do. If the people who did this were so sure of themselves, why are they so shy to take responsibility?
The question is pressing: who precisely bears the blame? Not just in general, but more precisely: who was willing to step up from the beginning to say “If this does not work, I accept full responsibility?” Or: “I did this and stand by it.” Or: “I did this and I’m very sorry.”
So far as I know, no one has said anything like this.
Instead, what we have is a big jumble of messy bureaucracies, committees, reports, and unsigned orders. There are certain systems in place that seem structured in a way that makes it impossible to find out who precisely is responsible for their design and implementation.
For example, a friend of mine was being harassed by his school for not being vaccinated. He wanted to speak to the person who imposed the rule. In his investigation, everyone passed the buck. This person put together a committee which then agreed on best practices left over from some other printed guidance approved by another committee, which had been implemented by a similar institution on another matter. This was then adopted by a different division and passed on to another committee for implementation as a recommendation and then it was issued by another division entirely.
Incredibly, throughout the whole investigation, he failed to find a single person who was willing to step up and say: I did this and it was my decision. Everyone had an alibi. It became one big mush of bureaucracy with no accountability. It’s a tub of dough in which every bad actor pre-built a hiding place.
It’s the same with many people who have been disemployed for refusing to divulge their vaccine status. Their bosses typically say that they are very sorry for what happened; if it had been up to them, the person would continue to work. Their bosses in turn demur and blame some other policy or committee. No one is willing to speak to victims and say: “I did this and stand by it.”
Like millions of others, I’ve been harmed materially by pandemic response. My story lacks drama and is nothing remotely close to what others have experienced but it is salient because it is personal. I was invited to join in a live studio appearance on TV but then was refused because I refused to divulge my vaccine status. I was sent to a separate studio reserved for the unclean where I sat by myself.
The person who informed me said the policy was stupid and he objected. But it is the company policy. Maybe I can speak to his boss? Oh, he is against this stuff too. Everyone thinks it is dumb. Who then is responsible? The buck is always passed on and up in the chain of command but no one will accept the blame and bear the consequences.
Even though the courts have repeatedly shot down the vaccine mandates, there is universal consensus that the vaccines, while perhaps offering some private benefits, are not contributing to stopping infections or spread. Which is to say: the only person who might suffer from being unvaccinated is the unvaccinated himself. And yet still, people are losing their jobs, missing out on public life, being segregated and blocked, and otherwise paying a heavy price for not complying.
And yet there are still people who are intensifying the blame game that blames not government nor public health authorities nor anyone in particular but rather a whole class of people: the evil unvaccinated.
“I am furious at the unvaccinated,” writes Charles Blow of the New York Times, a paper that kicked off the pro-lockdown propaganda as early as February 27, 2020. “I am not ashamed of disclosing that. I am no longer trying to understand them or educate them. The unvaccinated are choosing to be part of the problem.”
How precisely are the unvaccinated the problem? Because, he writes,“it is possible to control the virus and mitigate its spread, if more people are vaccinated.”
This is plainly untrue, as we’ve seen from many countries’ experiences around the world. Look up Singapore or Gibraltar or Israel or any high vaxx country and see their case trends. They look the same or worse than low vaxx countries. We know from at least 33 studies that the vaccines cannot and do not stop infection or transmission, which is precisely why Pfizer and people like Anthony Fauci are demanding 3rd and now 4th shots. Shots without end, always with the promise that the next one will achieve the goal.
Mr. Blow is propagating falsehoods. Why? Because there is an appetite out there to tag someone or something with the fault for the wreckage. The unvaccinated are the scapegoats to distract from the real problem of discovering and holding to account those people who undertook this experiment without precedent.
The trouble now is finding out who they are. The governor of New York did terrible things but now he has resigned. His brother at CNN propagated lockdown ideology but he was fired. The mayor of New York has perpetrated evil but he is sneaking out of office in a few weeks. Some governors who locked down their populations have declined to run again and will try their best to disappear.
Dr. Deborah Birx, whom we know for certain was the person who talked Trump into approving lockdowns, quietly resigned and has done her best to avoid the spotlight. The journalist at the New York Times who whipped up total hysteria while calling for brutal lockdown has since been fired from his job. So too for hundreds of public health officials who have resigned or been fired.
Who is left to blame? The most likely candidate here is Fauci himself. But I can already tell you his excuse. He never signed a single order. His fingerprints are on no legislation.
He never issued any edicts. He never had anyone arrested. He never blocked the entrance to any church nor personally padlocked any school or business. He is merely a scientist making recommendations supposedly for people’s health.
He has an alibi too.
Much of this reminds me of World War I, the “Great War.” Look up the causes. They are all amorphous. Nationalism. An assassination. Treaties. Diplomatic confusions. The Serbs. Meanwhile none of these reasons can actually account for 20 million dead, 21 million wounded, and wrecked economies and lives all over the world, to say nothing of the Great Depression and rise of Hitler that came as a result of this appalling disaster.
Despite investigations, countless books, public hearings, and public fury that lasted a decade or more after the Great War, there never was anyone who accepted responsibility. We saw a repeat of the same following the Iraq War. Is there any record of anyone who said “I made the decision and I was wrong”?
So it might be for the lockdowns and mandates of 2020 and 2021. The carnage is unspeakable and will last a generation or two or more. Meanwhile, the people responsible are slowly slipping out of public life, finding new jobs and sanitizing their hands of any responsibility. They are scrubbing resumes and, when asked, blaming anyone and everyone else but themselves.
This is the moment in which we find ourselves: a ruling class terrified of being found out, called out, and held accountable, and therefore incentivized to generate an endless series of excuses, scapegoats, and distractions (“You need another shot!”).
This is the least satisfying conclusion to this awful story. But there it is: it is very likely that the people who did this to us will never be held accountable, not in any court and not in any legislative hearing. They will never be forced to compensate their victims. They will never even admit they were wrong. And herein lies what might be the most egregious feature of evil public policy: this is not and will not be justice or anything that even vaguely resembles justice.
That is what history would suggest, in any case. If it is different this time and the perpetrators actually do face some consequences, it would still not make things right, but at least it would set a fabulous precedent for the future.
Jeffrey A. Tucker is Founder and President of the Brownstone Institute and the author of many thousands of articles in the scholarly and popular press and ten books in 5 languages, most recently Liberty or Lockdown. He is also the editor of The Best of Mises. He speaks widely on topics of economics, technology, social philosophy, and culture. This article was originally published by the Brownstone Institute.
They say they will go door-to-door testing, forcing the vaxx, then we’ll go door-to-door wiping out every Pfizer exec, every health care Nazi, every official demanding vaxx … not a single vaxx mandater or their families will be safe – that’s what it will come to, that’s what it will take. When has it ever been different when the tyrants in charge start demanding people demean and damage themselves “for the greater good”.
“the only person who might suffer from being unvaccinated is the unvaccinated himself.” In other words, the unvaccinated do not spread any disease to the already vaccinated and cannot get from those who are vaccinated. There are reports that the vaccinated are again getting the disease, which is sufficient reason to reconsider such things which were approved for emergency use in a hurry because the very purpose of taking the vaccine is being defeated if there is reinfection and further side effects. Hope world leaders will listen to the voices of reason and truth and end the policies which cause the destruction of economies and lives.
As for accountability, all authority is from God and therefore the rulers of this world are accountable to God.
Has anyone following GGI had any of the Experimental Gene Therapy Bioweapon inoculations because if any you have you really need to stay well clear of the Booster Jabs your life Expectancy be only 2 years Max and during that period going to experience long term pain and suffering that suicide could be the least painful way to go.
Listen to this Whistle-blower Doctor backs up most I had Emphasised above
Let’s see, there are dozens…maybe even hundreds of fauxinne-pushing ghouls trying to take on the whole of humanity. So a few hundred idiots vs. 7.9 billion of us. They can only win if they trick us into helping them. Shane on any ‘public servant’ such as the either misled or very evil fools in Australia, that are forcing this toxic mess on innocent citizens. If a person is truly a public servant they should be saving people from this tragedy, not betraying them and helping the moguls destroy your own brothers and sisters. History will note your betrayal.
Who’s responsible? The Illuminati.
If those vaccinated, automatically lose their humanity and are no longer regarded as human according to the Judgement in 2013 which I posted here previously – then Pfizer and the Big 4 in general have committed no crimes and can’t be held accountable, because the people who got the vaccines, agreed by signing their names for the vaccine to be given to them then agreed to give up their humanity for that to be done and then Pfizer have committed no crimes, by vaccinating non humans who did not have any rights, anyway and thence these non humans also became the property of Pfizer, because they carried the synthetic patented mRNA after injection and whatever they owned, as little better than slaves, then became Pfizer’s too, because slaves cannot own anything:
mRNA vaccinated people worldwide are products, patented goods, according to US law, “no longer human”.Esme Coetzee 10 Dec 2021 at 4:55 PM #63403 GMO HUMANS https://ambassadorlove.wordpress.com/2021/12/08/covid-19-patent-horrors/ All the Covid-19 “vaccine” patents mention gene deletion. All the patents except one, mention “complimentary DNA” (cDNA). cDNA is a chimeric mRNA cocktail that’s being coded into Human cells using artificial genetic sequences in cross-species genomics. According to the US Supreme Court ruling in 2013, altering Humans with cDNA makes them patent eligible. The court documents show that cDNA is made using modified bacterium and Supreme Court judges ruled it patent eligible. This means that a plant, animal or Human, could be patented and owned if first genetically modified with cDNA. Mark Steele summarized it perfectly by stating: In the US, the Supreme Court has ruled that vaccinated people worldwide are products, patented goods, according to US law, no longer human. Through a modified DNA or RNA vaccination, “the mRNA vaccination”, the person ceases to be human and becomes the OWNER of the holder of the modified GEN vaccination patent, because they have their own genome and are no longer “human” (without natural people), but “trans-human”, so a category that does not exist in Human Rights.

Israeli Journalist: Sheldon Adelson Was A Jew ‘Straight Out Of The Protocols Of Zion’
Indeed, if anyone had any illusions about American politics, they were dispelled this week. The casino mogul, Sheldon Adelson, organized a public display of his power. He summoned to his Las Vegas betting paradise the four most probable Republican candidates for the next presidential elections, in order to choose one of them. All the invitees heeded the summons, of course.
It was a shameless exhibition. The politicians groveled before the casino lord. Mighty governors of important states did their best to sell themselves like applicants at a job interview. Each of them tried to trump the others in promising to do the Mogul’s bidding. Flanked by Israeli bodyguards, Adelson grilled the American hopefuls. And what was he demanding from the future president of the United States? First of all and above everything else, blind and unconditional obedience to the government of another state: Israel.
I was only following orders was not accepted at the Nuremberg trials- we can only hope.
Look, there is a Rothschild, Klaus Schwab, George Soros, Bill Gates, Tony Fauci, Joe Brandon, Nancy Piglosi, ….. CHK CHK, …… !!!
Xyzanna It’s the Ashkenazi !!
The rulers of this world, Also the cowards who followed orders from the so named rulers, are accountable to the millions, who to say the least disrupted and so cruelly destroyed, their health, and life.———-
You get it
Certainly the best article on Covid fraud that I have read out of several thousand. Certainly many people would like to take Fauci, Birx, Gates and thousands of politicians out in the town square and hang them. Certainly we want the most important question answered which no one has out loud and in public.
I cannot help with the dismal proposition above because those individuals were obviously promised sanctuary though they will be liquidated instead, anyways! By their own handlers.
However I can help with the answer to ‘Why this fraud now?’
Will Great Game of India stand by their standards and morals and print the reason for the greatest fraud ever. A fraud eclipsing even the rationales for WW1, 2 and the 3rd yet to come!
Just let me know if you can decide whether you have the testicles to print it! I think there are a couple of thousand, thousand, thousand people who really would like to know the answer to this fraud so they can decide if indeed we do need to take those named above out and hang them. Or, even better, stone them to death.
With all due respect…
I support the idea of individual vigilante action…Mothers, Fathers, Brothers, Sisters, Concerned and pissed off citizens…engaging in sniping campaigns against these pieces of shit. Shoot them, hang them, poison them, burn them, run them over, or put them in a septic tank….Just Do It!
Tom —- Trust me, as soon as TSHTF and law and order breaks down, …. none of these shitbirds will be able to show their faces without getting mowed down in one fashion or another. Until then, no one is going to sacrifice themselves to a death penalty for doing it NOW.
Absolutely! It’s time to take back what is ours.
“…or their families…” Wow. Let’s end evil by being evil too? I don’t think so. How is it justice to harm innocents?
You are accepting the definitions of human and non-human put forth by these legalists. Has the Supreme Court never erred in it’s judgement? Dredd Scott comes to mind.
Do you believe that if lawyers express a specific idea or opinion, then we have to agree it’s true? It must be, right? In a pig’s eye.
Sometimes, they say, the law is an ass. The lawyers behind those laws are the reason.
I do not defend the injections, as such. But no one who accepted it agreed in any way to be owned. It is nonsense spoken in legalese, a sophisticated way to lie.
A corporation is a legal person…and we know what BS that is and what injustices that idea has rationalized in the minds of irrational people. Corporations now have legal rights that clearly belong, in truth, only to individual humans.
An opinion being asserted by lawyers or judges does not make it true, but perhaps very dangerous to humanity.
Yvonne Hell, we’ve all been owned as chattel for the last 150 years !! While the people don’t generally know it, it doesn’t make the legalese any less efficient and this is nothing but a final step to sealing the deal permanently. If not, explain the Act Of 1871, income tax, Social Security numbers, Birth Certificates and Admiralty Law and the gold fringe on the flag. Hmmmm, sure, leagalese doesn’t mean much to the masses, but it sure means plenty to those who will be pulling the rope on the guillotine !!
We know who they are and they are above the law. The stitched race.
Any judge can legally call BS on all of that agreement and set it aside. They do that every day with similar deceptive contracts and legal agreements in garden variety cases. Just because one signed something does not necessarily make it binding–especially when signed under deception.
If one is born human, they shall always remain human, with human rights.
Yvonne, If you are going to asset forfeiture the Rothschilds, you had better get all of the relatives’ assets too because: 1) they have been spread around far and wide in generous measure to relatives and to the so-called ‘diaspora’; 2) they are also ill-gotten, and thoroughly so; and 3) the selfsame ‘toxic financial wart’ will grow again if you don’t.
There are plenty of people that said, “I voted the wrong way on the Iraq War.” The problem with foreign wars is that no one really cares. “Oops, yea, that was a bad idea, but who cares?” Never hurt Henry Kissinger’s resume.
The casualties in this Narrative have been kept to a minimum so as to keep similar apathy levels among those not at the front.
But ultimately, when a group conspires to do harm, the group must first be identified before conceiving of its guilt. Identification requires a perspective. Those in a position to perceive this group are members of the group.
Being in the group generates a lot of advantages for the individual. But the group is large enough that one member can never substantially disadvantage the whole.
When this group monopolized the influences upon those outside of it, its concealment was concluded. It cannot be identified, and will suffer no justice.
It would depend on the charge, slavery crimes go back to 1600, financial slavery goes back to the creation of the black market in about 1300. That is also when wars targeting certain civilians began. Banker Wars, if you will.
What is the problem here? It is obvious who is responsible. All who participated. For any further questions: “Nuremberg 1945-1948”. Hang them, they have no excuses! May they claim “this guy or this paper or that committee”, no, you did it. You did it on your own, willingly, so you are guilty.
Otherwise every last concentraion camp guard has to labeled as not guilty: “I did only what they told me to do” …
You gonna go down that road?
We tried being decent, honest, environmental, financially responsible, good cooks and snappy dressers, but we just were shat upon by overpaid swine sucking the life out of us using their fiat currency based on fractional lending. NOW they tell us that we all must die so they can have more. Down periscope. First close out my account to rely on my local credit union.
Oh, yes. The head goon who has definitely decided to mug us in the alley with world wide Dominion computer vote fraud and this ‘COVID’ fraud with a coronaSARS virus threat backup in case the poisonous Death Jabs do not convince us is Lord Mark Mallach Brown of the British royal Privy Council.
