We saw them.
Now the situation is like the situation in Germany, in May of 1945. Unserere Fuhrer ist gefallen – and just like that, it was hard to find someone wearing the symbol of Good Germanism. They all looked like just Germans again, normal people.
Think of the poltroonery this implies.
It is the same poltroonery that manifested all those years ago, in that other place – where almost everyone wore the symbol and then – just like that – stopped wearing it. But not because they stopped believing. Many never did believe.
But they didn’t want to be seen as not believing.
A herd is a scary thing when spooked. And worse, when it is a two-legged herd that is spooked about not being visibly one of the herd.
Some of them no doubt do feel physically safe, having been Anointed. This is also scary because the underlying pathology has not been treated. Their fear. Its presence or determining the obligations to be imposed upon others.
Will they cast a resentful eye toward those of us who never bowed to the pressure to wear their symbol? Who refused to receive the Holy Anointing? Will we get the blame for the “cases” to come?
And there will be new “cases.”
Because people will always get sick and some of these will die. It does not really matter how sick they get – nor whether those who die died normal deaths, as from old age pushed over the edge by a final sickness.
The evil genius of the affliction created in the minds of probably half the people of this country is that sickness and death are abnormalities, to be pathologically feared. That it is somehow “normal” for the elderly to live forever, for people not to get sick – and for no one to ever die of sickness.
Either the Anointing didn’t work.
Or, it did.
Either way, the fear will resurrect. And we’ll see those Good Germans again. Even if we can see their faces, again.
