During The ‘Pandemic’ (THREAD):
1/ Most people would rather be in the majority, than be

tendencies, which will emerge under the right conditions.
3/ Fear of death is only rivalled by the fear of social

16/ Most people care more about looking like they are
doing the right thing, rather than actually doing the
17/ Politics, the media, science, and the healthcare
industries are all corrupt, to varying degrees. Scientists
and doctors can be bought as easily as politicians.
18/ If you make people comfortable enough, they will not
revolt. You can keep millions docile as you strip their
rights, by giving them money, food, and entertainment.
19/ Modern people are overly complacent and lack vigilance
when it comes to defending their own freedoms from
20/ It’s easier to fool a person than to convince them
