“Munchausen Syndrome: America’s Silent Epidemic!”
by T. Matthew Phillips, Attorney-at-Law
‘M’ is for Munchausen
Munchausen Syndrome is a mental illness where persons — for reasons unrelated to money — pretend they are sick, for example, to gain sympathy or attention.
Munchausen by Proxy
Munchausen by Proxy is a related mental illness where persons — for reasons unrelated to money — pretend others are sick, for example, a mother who pretends her child is sick — to achieve notoriety as an heroic, caregiving mother.
Bad Case of Munchausen
America has a bad case of Munchausen Syndrome as well as Munchausen by Proxy! Folks pretend they’re sick — and they pretend everyone else is sick too! Everyone coddles everyone else’s fears! We’re all in it together — a nation of Munchausen Syndies!
The Land of the Free / Home of the Brave suddenly morphed into Land of the Face Diaper / Home of the Disease Cultist! America now exhibits telltale signs of advanced-stage Munchausen! Patriotic zombies proudly declare: “I’ll pretend that I’m sick — if you pretend that you’re sick too!”
Innocent Until Proven Guilty
Society presumes YOU are SICK — and the burden is on YOU to prove otherwise. But this is bassackwards. We are supposed to be presumed “innocent until proven guilty” — in other words — “healthy until proven sick.” But nowadays, everybody is suspected of having an elevated temperature. No one is above suspicion.
Back in the day, folks with no symptoms of disease were presumed “healthy.” After all, the definition of “healthy” is just that — “no symptoms of disease.” But today, even if you have no symptoms of disease — you are still presumed “sick.”
The Asymptomatic Paradigm
Sure, you feel fine. You have no symptoms. But the virus may be surging inside your body — you just don’t know it! Welcome to: The Asymptomatic Paradigm! Maybe you’re sick, maybe you’re not! Who knows?!
The Asymptomatic Diagnosis
“Asymptomatic” is a sketchy medical diagnosis calculated to cover-up false-positive test results. And when it comes to Covid, the test kits yield false-positives at least 50% of the time!
Keep ’em Guessing
Maybe you have the dreaded disease—but no symptoms of dread! Maybe you have the killer virus—but no symptoms of killer! (Get it?) The “asymptomatic” diagnosis keeps ’em guessing! Maybe you’re sick, but asymptomatic.
Hey! You might also have the Black Plague or the Red Death! You just don’t know it. Until you get tested. During these uncertain times, everyone presumes that everybody else is spreading the virus — even if everybody else is perfectly healthy! Next thing you know, everybody else is subject to social distancing and quarantine protocols!
‘Q’ is for Quarantine
Quarantine is the most effective tool for halting the spread of contagion. But historically, quarantine has been for sick people only. And this factoid is significant. In years gone by, during infectious outbreaks, (like smallpox), they would confine sick people — to keep them away from healthy people. But today, quarantine is no longer just for sick people. Nowadays, quarantine is for everybody — sick and healthy!
No one can be sure whether they have The Covids — unless a test kits says so. And there’s no way to verify test results at home. (Just marinate on that!) One can never be certain. And this uncertainty gives way to fear — and fear is the currency of control. Next thing ya know, your constitutional rights are sold down river in exchange for a false sense of security.
Imagine a virus — so deadly — that the only way to know whether you have it is by getting tested! Imagine a virus — so deadly — that it has a 99.9% survival rate. Imagine a virus — so deadly — that the only life-saving treatment is to stay home for 14 days until it magically disappears!
Stop Getting Tested!
Friends! Romans! Sports fans! There’s only one way to flatten the curve — stop getting tested! (Duh!) Play stoopid games — win stoopid prizes!
You better wake your asses UP! The tipping point is at hand! Today it’s a mask — tomorrow a vaccine! It’s not public health — it’s violence! #ResistNow
