One Small Victory: A Precursor of More to Come
A Halachic Observation in the Context of the Vaccine Crusade
By Michael Hoffman • October 8, 2021
Take heart and and witness one small victory.
In an article online today titled,“The Cult of the Vaccine:’ The Jab’ is Just the Latest Story to be reported as Mantra,” Substack columnist Matt Taibibi puts forth an audacious halachic observation concerning the editors of the corporate media and their “Cult of the Vaccine.”
The context is the media’s imposition of moralizing dogmatic cultism. Taibibi writes:
“...This was the beginning of an era in which editors became convinced that all earth’s problems derived from populations failing to accept reports as Talmudic law…”
The connotation is not difficult to spot: Talmudic law is dictatorial; it brooks no disagreement.
Witness too another of Matt Taibibi's sardonic insights: all of earth’s problems stem from the refusal to place the media on the same commanding dogmatic pedestal as Talmudic law.
The corollary is the profound abasement of reason. Reason has no part in the proposition that the media are to be believed the way the Talmud commands belief. How is the Talmud of Babylon believed? With blind obedience.
As noted, the stating of these facts in a nationally circulated column is a tiny triumph and the author may be coerced into recanting his candor. Nonetheless, it’s a leak — a pin-sized hole in what is otherwise an insurmountable dike. Yet behind the dike, pressuring and probing, is an ocean of truth that cannot be forever held back. So take heart and fear not.
It is true that the Cryptocracy sows the conviction that it is invincible, infallible and omniscient. But look at the meltdown at Facebook on October 4, removing it from the Internet for several hours. Facebook has infinite resources and the top tier of network performance engineers, yet Facebook personnel issued a networking command that yanked it off the worldwide web for hours. How does something like that happen? Does it not subvert the theater wherein the supposed invincibility, infallibility and omniscience of our Overlords is propagated?
The world is run by those who show up. If the Hermetic-Alchemical Process has captured you, then in that case you’re too lobotomized to undermine Talmudic suzerainty, or accomplish much of anything else that obstructs or diminishes the Cryptocracy. But if you have stayed free of The Process and kept faith with the theological virtue of hope, then you are enlisted in that army of fools for Jesus, and weaklings (in the eyes of the world), who will, it is prophesied, manage by divine grace to “confound the mighty” (I Corinthians 1:27).
Furthermore, Mr. Taibibi makes his observation outside of the “hate speech” stage-direction which the Cryptocracy subliminally induces in a surfeit of critics of the Babylonian Talmud. The Cryptocracy conditions its army of dupes to employ intemperate rhetoric which discredits educational efforts to debunk the fantasy that Talmudic theology is a benevolent ally of western civilization and —wait for it — Christendom itself. (This imbecility is an article of faith intrinsic to the prattle of influential Right-wing talk radio host Ben Shapiro and other "Conservative" spokesmen too numerous to name).
Ah, but you dissent: Taibibi’s one sentence is not really that much, Hoffman.
Perhaps. But it is a start toward imparting positive speech direction of our own, contra the Cryptocracy—of the victorious kind that states facts about Talmudism credibly, with matter-of-fact objectivity, sans vitriol. Is there a learning opportunity here?
As for my assessment being too hopeful—well, I’m the kind of guy who looks for what there is to celebrate, even in the darkest penal hole.
