I often write about ordinary people and the banal, because each situation is a complex allegory, if not an intriguing painting, and no one is uninteresting. Plus, normalcy calms.

When you smell smoke, however, it might be wise to stop waxing about fried chicken, say, and see where the flames are coming from. In case you haven't noticed, our world is burning.

It all starts with Covid. Covid locks you in, freezes your economy, destroys your business, wrecks your mental health, strains your relationships, drains your savings, empties your stores, disfigures your society, conditions you to be unnatural and, now, if you don't agree to be vaccinated, threatens to isolate you (even further) and starve you to death, as charmingly decreed by that Olympus of human rights, Noam Chomsky, plus a host of others.

Never a fan, I find Chomsky's prose devoid of sparks, such as is routine in Orwell, but maybe I'm just thick. In a Guardian piece, "Conscience of a nation," Maya Jaggi swoons, "Chomsky ranks with Marx, Shakespeare and the Bible as one of the 10 most quoted sources in the humanitiesand is the only writer among them still alive."

In his 1967 essay, "The Responsibility of Intellectuals," Chomsky succinctly declares, "Intellectuals are in a position to expose the lies of governments, to analyze actions according to their causes and motives and often hidden intentions."

In his 2002 essay, "Reflections on 9-11," Chomsky points out that "despite what must be the most intensive international intelligence investigation in history, evidence about the perpetrators of 9-11 has been hard to find." And yet, "Nevertheless, despite the thin evidence, the initial conclusion about 9-11 is presumably correct."

Notice how the deft linguist went from "hard to find" to "thin," but there ain't none, Noam! From Building 7 to Betty Ong, none of this story makes sense. Still, Chomsky sticks to his evidence-free conclusion, so regarding 9/11, an event that has changed our entire world, there are no governmental lies to unearth.

Now with Covid, an even greater 9-11, America's most celebrated public intellectual is, again, trusting the worst science.

In his 9-11 essay, Chomsky does state that the U.S. and other governments would seize "upon 9-11 as a window of opportunity to institute or escalate harsh and repressive programs." Plus, "Israel recognized that it would be able to crush Palestinians even more brutally, with even firmer U.S. support."

A crisis, then, is a great opportunity to institute your evil plan, but why wait for cave dwellers to knock down three skyscrapers and puncture a hole in the Pentagon?! Just do it yourselves. Which brings us to Covid.

A key aim for the planners of 9/11 and Covid is the normalization of repressive measures. The first brought us an increased surveillance state, prison or even death without charge, the no-fly list and a nebulous definition of "terrorist."

The second subjects us to, above all, a forced vaccination which may maim or kill, and, for those who survive, a passport that's needed to do anything, shop, go to school, travel or just stroll down the street.

In constant fear of having your passport deactivated, you must obey each new diktat, no matter how absurd. (A core feature of totalitarianism is its relentless absurdity.)

Like I've said several times before, repressive systems learn from each other, so the West's CommonPass or Green Passport, whatever they want to call it, is clearly modeled after China's social credit system. It's all about having total control of your life.

On 9/20/21, Paul Craig Roberts published a 2,200 word article at Unz that was never featured, "Conquered by a Fake Pandemic, We Can Kiss America Good-Bye." It begins:
