Love in the Time of CoronavirusQuintilian
I have to admit it. I love the restrictions and hope they continue indefinitely. Social distancing works for me. There is something vulgar about shaking hands and the incessant hugging that seems to be de rigueur these days. Bowing and the Roman salute are much more civilized methods of greeting.
Since the quarantine, society seems to be much more polite and thoughtful. People are more serious, and America has not been a serious country since about 1962. Indeed, behaviorally speaking, America in April 2020 resembles the America I remember back in my youth during the 1950s and 60s.
I see families working together in their yards. I see mothers and fathers playing with their children. In some cases, I have seen parental reinforcement of traditional gender roles with fathers tossing balls to their sons while mothers and daughters are planting posies. One woman I know has decided not to return to work after the quarantine is lifted. She has so enjoyed her time with her young children that she has decided her office job isn’t worth it.
Globalism’s reputation has been sullied beyond redemption, the European Union is on the verge of collapse, and ordinary people are now loudly proclaiming the need to bring supply chains home to America and abandon the ridiculous concept of just-in-time manufacturing. Saving for a rainy day is now cool, and people are finally beginning to identify with the ant rather than the grasshopper. Best of all, college campuses are ghost towns. I’d gladly take an epidemic of Coronavirus over the completely toxic disease of what is ironically called American higher education any day of the week. Most colleges and universities are predicting declines in Fall enrollment anywhere from 20 to 50 percent. There is fear and trembling in the administrative offices and faculty clubs of American universities, and I love it. Think of all of those “diversity” officers and instructors of gender studies who will be out of jobs next semester. Better learn to code.
A number of pundits on the Right (and even some on the Dissident Right) have posited theories that the response to the Coronavirus is a vast plot by the globalist oligarchs to entrap people at home and control their movements through GPS systems or even barcodes tattooed on the arms of Corona-free individuals. I could not disagree more. The last thing that the globalists wanted was to reacquaint American consumers with their families. The quarantine has provided the one commodity that the oligarchs never wanted Americans consumers to consume: time for reflection.
Upon reflection, many Americans have discovered that they have been sold a bill of goods by the globalists and their bought-and-paid-for politicians from both sides of the establishment uniparty; upon reflection, many American women have discovered that they have been sold a bill of goods by the feminist establishment, that the joys of motherhood vastly outweigh the joys of shuffling papers as a cog in a corporate bureaucracy; upon reflection, many American college students have discovered that they have been sold a bill of goods from the educational establishment since kindergarten, that they have beggared themselves to pursue meaningless degrees with little educational but much propagandistic content.
The restrictions of the quarantine require discipline, and discipline favors the white race. Life, like great art, needs limitations. A haiku is a 17-syllable poem restricted to three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively. Its power, the succinctness of its imagery, is a result of the restrictions of the form. Similar restrictions inform almost all artistic forms. Formless art is a contradiction in terms. In a similar sense, laissez-faire economics and libertarian (and liberal) politics are also oxymorons.
Science has shown us that there is form everywhere in the universe, from the subatomic to the cosmological levels. The form of the universe is restricted by the laws of the universe. If those restrictions were not in place the universe would not adhere; it would have no form; it would be nothing but chaos. It is precisely the formlessness of modern life, its lack of restrictions, that has made life in the America of 2020 a living hell, especially for white Americans.
So I say let the quarantine continue. That little virus has done more for the cause of the white race than anything since the Immigration Act of 1924. Next, we can reinstate the Blue Laws and dress codes in public schools. After that, perhaps a return to redlining and restrictive covenants.
We don’t need or want the formlessness of a deracinated existence that is consumed solely by mindless consumerism. A wise man once said that if you have a library and a garden you have everything you need. I have both, that’s all I need, and I love it. And I wish the same for all white people everywhere.

Love in the Time of Coronavirus ?
“Since the quarantine, society seems to be much more polite and thoughtful.”
Polite and thoughtful (really ?), but the real question is: how does boy meet girl ? when they have to stand two yards apart and can’t visit each other . It does not sound much fun, does it ? The new Kill-joys are in charge.
Boy will always meet girl. It’s called courtship. Maybe restraint will bring about longer-lasting relationships. As for the current inconvenience, the words of Shakespeare come to mind: “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”

I firmly believe that this virus was intentionally created and released for the express purpose of having a credible excuse to roll out mandatory vaccines and digital cash so as to further control and monitor the masses.
If that were the case, the bad guys would have created a more lethal virus.
April 14 (Reuters) – U.S. coronavirus deaths rose by at least 2,228 on Tuesday, a single-day record, to top 28,300, according to a Reuters tally, as officials debated how to reopen the economy without reigniting the outbreak.
Many of us have been trained, through a crash course, to see that 28,300 as a terrifying number, but it isn’t. Corona hasn’t yet matched the average annual flu deaths in the 1990s.
If evil forces regularly set communicable diseases loose on the public, their skill at manufacturing them would surely increase over time.
What is said in this short essay I feel as well: There is a definite change of undertone in intercourse, towards a seriousness that has been pushed out of everyday life through decades of mass-manufacture of a surrogate for actual existence.
I like the drop of university enrollment, the recognition that life takes place within the circle of those one loves and including those one respects. and beyond that becomes a jungle.
I like it that the leftist crowd thinks that this is a great opportunity to finally grab hold of the unwashed masses and make them appreciate the leftist agenda of more mass immigration, more abortion, concentration on career and more dissolution of solidarity among people who have natural common interests. Corona will become a sore disappointment of these brutalizers of human nature. Be it so! Nature asserts her primacy in crises touching on the substance of existence.
“Life, like great art, needs limitations. A haiku is a 17-syllable poem restricted to three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively” : reminds me of John Cooper Clarke’s celebrated haiku.
“To convey one’s mood/
in seventeen syllables/
is very diffic”
“the Coronavirus is a vast plot by the globalist oligarchs to entrap people at home and control their movements through GPS systems or even barcodes tattooed on the arms of Corona-free individuals”
This is a deliberate attempt to exaggerate and trivialise a legitimate concern.
They are going to try and get 100% acceptance of tracking of individuals. Either via mandatory apps or vaccines with microchips.
Yes there have been some side benefits to our cause as you mention.
@Anthony Kimball : 100% agree.
In re Nationl Renewal, since the federal government already has access to everyone’s financial transactions, phone calls, emails, library book records, GPS records from Google maps, and even the image of the front of every piece of mail is stored on federal computers, worrying about the possibility of Bill Gates advocating for subcutaneous chip implanting to track all Americans seems to be closing the barn door after the horses have escaped. Actually, it is probably the case that Gates et al are pushing a phony narrative to keep the Right preoccupied with libertarian concerns (which almost always leads to a further diminishment of rights for whites) so that the Right will not take advantage of the opening that the Coronavirus has given us.
“If that were the case, the bad guys would have created a more lethal virus.”
Not necessarily. If it was more lethal that might have caused too much chaos.
It has worked out to be bad enough that a good portion of the normies will willingly accept Bill Gates’s vaccine.
“If evil forces regularly set communicable diseases loose on the public, their skill at manufacturing them would surely increase over time.”
Maybe they don’t want it to be really bad? For what they are planning, its not necessarily the more lethal the better. Do you understand?
You make good points that they can already track people well.
The chip is a huge improvement on what they already had.
The other point is simply to make vaccines mandatory, so that they can poison more people and lower IQs.
“Actually, it is probably the case that Gates et al are pushing a phony narrative to keep the Right preoccupied with libertarian concerns (which almost always leads to a further diminishment of rights for whites) so that the Right will not take advantage of the opening that the Coronavirus has given us”
– The section about Gates pushing a phony narrative to keep the Right distracted is 100% BS. People like Gates are dead serious about poisoning people via GMOs, Vaccines etc.
Why does it have to be one or the other? lol
We can “take advantage of the opening that the Coronavirus has given us”
be preparing for mandatory vaccines from Gates and Co. and raising some awareness among our communities on why they should avoid them.
Although I believe the way forward politically is to be “pro medical freedom”, avoiding dangerous vaccines is not a “libertarian concern”.
It is a national health concern and an issue for white wellbeing.
Here are some of my cynical speculations about how the crisis is being milked to the utmost:
In Re National Review: The idea that Bill Gates is some sort of Svengali manipulating worldwide events is as ridiculous a notion as the Left’s hysteria that the Koch Brothers are the masterminds behind neo-Nazi attempts to bring about a Fourth Reich. Gates is simply a guy who happened to be at the right place at the right time and made a lot of money. He has thrown away billions to almost no effect, just like Bloomberg spent billions to secure the Democrat presidential nomination. Gates is a distraction. The fact of the matter is that the Coronavirus caught the Establishment completely flatfooted and none of them know what they are doing. The Coronavirus is destroying the entire underpinnings of the “New World Order.” The future is there for the Dissident Right to grab as long as we do not get bogged down in fighting phantoms like Gates. As someone who was one of the first persons to be inoculated with the polio vaccine, I can tell you that I like vaccines. Even though Jonas Salk was Jewish, I do not believe that the polio vaccine was a Jewish plot to poison the Goyim. If you don’t want to receive any vaccinations that’s fine with me, but let’s keep our eyes on the prize.

I don’t agree, but your comment was, for me, another odd corona moment, clearly of limited interest, though I’ll mention it anyway.
A cousin is visiting, after making a non-essential car trip to get here, in violation of corona ethics. Peering over my shoulder a second or two before I tapped the post button, she told me, “Kimball’s right.” She then gave me pretty much the same explanation that you have for why I’m wrong. So essentially I listened to your reply well before I read it.
In my opinion, we are experiencing the results of a dark comedy of errors, not a conspiracy.
At the moment, it seems likely that Neil Ferguson’s initial overestimation of corona’s virulence caused politicians to overreact, and they then discovered that overreaction earned them support and reasoned skepticism made their voters angry. That, I think, is why Trump blinked, after being right at the outset. We’ll eventually learn about more sources of the misinformation that caused politicians to overreact, but I doubt that the obvious explanation ‘bad information caused bad decisions’ will change.
I also think that debates over global warming put into common circulation the structure ‘science vs. anti-science.’ There are bad people who don’t believe in science and good people who do believe in science, “science” being represented largely by scientists talking in the MSM. Whatever we think of climate change, ‘science vs. anti-science’ discouraged skepticism when various scientists and scientific bodies started talking about millions of corona deaths in the West if draconian measures were not taken, even though the daily death counts, and the history of all recent outbreaks of flu, plainly contradicted their dire predictions.
I can easily see why people fear that bad actors will take advantage of corona hysteria, but I really doubt that they caused it.

That bit surprised me too. Surely the exact opposite is the case. “Often impolite” and “dogmatically unthoughtful” would be better.
Let’s hope Quintilian was looking into the future.
A few months before the outbreak, Gates, the CDC, WHO, John Hopkins, etc did a run thru of what was to come called Event 201. Coincidence? The burden of proof is on you.
