The Land of Lies

  • Double-vaccinated, fully masked and still getting the virus…
  • The Land of Lies…
  • “We are all learning what it must have been like to live in the Soviet Union in its last decades”…

Editor’s note: “We are all learning what it must have been like to live in the Soviet Union in its last decades,” argues Jeffrey Tucker in today’s Reckoning. We are living in the Land of Lies, says Jeffrey.

There is so much dislocation, disorientation and overall social, political, cultural and economic crisis all around us. It can be difficult even to glimpse the whole, much less keep up with the chaos.

Any single human mind can only comprehend a bit of it at a time. But somehow certain news items boil to the top as perfectly emblematic of the loss of trust in our times.

The top symbol for today is surely that the White House spokesperson Jen Psaki came down with COVID-19 — or I should say at least she tested positive. False positives are common.

She says her symptoms are minor “thanks to the vaccine” but there is no way to know that. The striking thing is that her masks, distancing and jabs did not stop infection. Further, her fully vaccinated family is likely the source of the spread.
