Dr. StrangeElf: How Karen Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Covid

Covid Survivor (TM) Kurt Schlichter explains the twisted psychology of the Pandemic Fetishists:

It might not occur to you, because you are not a bizarre wierdo, but a lot of people really love the pandemic. Not just the little fascist gnome who changes his #science advice more often than a Wellesley girl changes her preferences during her sophomore year experimental phase, and not just the fascist pols who get off on exploiting their emergency powers to boss people around, but even some regular people. The masks, the paranoia, the constant talk about vaccines -- some people love this stuff.

This is their Woodstock.

And they never want it to end.

Why would anyone enjoy this idiocy? Limits on your freedom, hectoring pests, nitwits riding around in their Priuses with face diapers wrapped around their talk-holes... it's an abomination. Yet there's this slice of the populace that gets into it. They resist a return to normalcy because their normal lives were not that great to begin with and this is the most exciting thing that will ever happen to them.

People crave a challenge, and for a while one of the most challenging things about America was its utter lack of challenge. It's generally safe here. You probably won't get hurt, except by accidents or if you live in a big Democratic city, and only then if you find yourself in the wrong neighborhood. You won't starve -- even if you are a bum, someone is handing you a ham sandwich. You really have to go looking for danger, and people do. They get into extreme sports, or flirt with crime, join the military, or date a Cuban chick.

The hardworking people who built America and made it safe, secure, and prosperous, also made it, in some ways, empty. We inherited a paradise. We paid nothing, did nothing, and most importantly, we risked nothing. But human beings are designed to do all those things. And we never really got a chance to.

People need to be tested. They crave meaning. I merely oversaw a heavily-armed carwash during the Gulf War, but even then, being in a war zone as history happened around us, we all had this feeling of being alive unlike anything else we had ever experienced. I did not get it back until I was driving around riot-torn Los Angeles with an M16 rifle during the riots. I did not want there to be a war, or for the Democrats to encourage people to burn down their own communities, but I would not have rather been anywhere else.

That's what the pandemic is for these people. It's their war. It's something that lets them transcend their boring lives.

By the way, the mention of dating a Cuban chick is a reference to Schlichter's own wife, who is Cuban.

They will try to slap him with a Cancellation anyway.

Mentioned in the sidebar, Kurt Schlichter discussed America's coming Shit-Hits-the-Fan future with Tim Pool. He also talked about the Covid Commandos who get off on plague.
