Fear Psychosis and the Cult of Safety – Why are People so Afraid? (Academy of Ideas | Apr 2, 2022 | Time 13: 25 min.) at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIl39KKrmmo
Yes, we are still in the midst of a Utopian power / gain / glory-grab under cover of health and safety. This cult of health and safety (parroted so repetitiously by Canada’s PM Trudeau and handlers: WEF, WHO, et al.) is part and parcel of utopian schemes of health that Joseph Uemura1 addressed in his Reflections on the Mind of Plato, where he observed:
Plato meant to cure us of utopias, not to create one. His reason for composing the Republic is quite plain: Plato wanted to show us how utterly futile is the “making of utopias,” the “building of Castles in Spain,” or the creation of “Cities in the Sun.” On the contrary, he wanted to show us how infinitely important is the building up of what we, intrinsically and inherently, are, namely thinking human beings.2
I have only tried to show that Plato has been badly misinterpreted over the years, and particularly if, in the Republic, he is taken to be “outlining a utopian society.” Plato, rather, was doing exactly the reverse: He was offering an antidote to, and showing the complete idiocy of, the construction of all possible utopias, particularly any utopia that is based upon health, wealth, honor, reputation, or political power. Each of those utopias, Plato shows, with devastating clarity, is ultimately self-defeating. It was Plato’s specific purpose to rid us of our romanticism, and to help us concentrate on the only kinds of aims fit for thinking, reasoning, and valuing human beings. Of course, it is perfectly evident that only those who have read The Republic without bias, and with a fine sense of humor, have ever been convinced.3
We have already witnessed for nigh three years that “almost anything can be justified” under cover of health and safety. Isn’t three years more than enough time to become “thinking, reasoning, and valuing human beings”? More than enough time to discern between science and pscience4?
Time to break out of the cult, folks!

4. Pscience is the corrupted offshoot of honorable Science. It is the inevitable consequence of man’s obsessive pursuit and protection of power, gain, glory, and domination. Pscience is pseudo, psychopathic, propagandizing, plagiarizing, politicized, psy-opic, and above all, profit-obsessed, and profit-driven. This obsessive pursuit and protection by people without conscience is often enabled by naïve, trusting, or fear-filled acolytes. Pscience is a one-faith, one-dogma, heretic-fearing, self-deceiving, other-censoring system.
