Anti-Empire — There When It Mattered Most

This site was one of the most valuable early resources and outspoken voices in the push-back against the anti-civilizational, Stalinist, COVID doomsday cult

I feel the COVID lockdowns have largely jumped the shark with the liberal/progressive about-face on mass gatherings. (Albeit a full return to normalcy and the tearing apart of the “new normal” still awaits.)

Besides, in the weeks leading up to the George Floyd protests there was already a growing torrent of critique, including from the mainstream media (especially Tucker Carlson who did great).

That said, where by May many outlets were on the case and daring to point out the insanity and the holes in the hysterical justification for the chosen “cure” of Maoist lockdowns — in March and April it was still a very different story.

In those early days, when countries were falling to Draconian lockdowns one by one, standing up for caution and questioning the alarmism was a very lonely place to be. Even by standards of the alternative media. Easily half of alt-media crossed over to the Doomsday Cult and lent its voices to the sensationalist MSM,  and the medical police state.

Anti-regime outlets, which had been good on Empire and civil liberties for ages, abandoned all of their senses and demanded yet harsher crackdowns,  or in some cases went mum, shying away from commenting on the most consequential public policy since WWII.

In the midst of this hysteria stood Anti-Empire as one of the first speaking out against the mind virus, and the unhinged doomsayers pushing it. It was one of the most valuable early resources in the fight. (And still is a great resource with over 500 articles on all aspects of the issue in the archive.)

Another thing. Once or twice I read a reader’s comment — I believe made in jest — that Anti-Empire is reflexively Anti-American (albeit it actually goes through great pains to distinguish between the Empire and the American people, and even between the Empire and the US Government).  But when the push came to shove, who was there standing up for Americans? As America’s own established media was justifying crackdowns on them, Anti-Empire was standing up for ordinary Americans, their livelihoods, lives and civilization. This at a time when even swathes of the nationalist and alt-right media were beside themselves with fear, and begging for a totalitarian nanny state to drop. Anti-Empire noted that lockdowns had meant a partial relief from the Empire for foreigners, but found no joy in Americans’ misery at home. (Or that of NATO Europeans, indeed I’m a citizen of a country that is in NATO myself.)


Slavsquat‘s comment:

You know what’s amazing? How we knew everything back in March. What an incredible triumph of state propaganda. That there was so much damning info and arguments that were made from day one. But they were basically banished to the corners of the internet even while being made by big-name academics and scholars. Incredible.

I’ll assume you meant Tucker Carlson?

What a dumb question!

Americans clearly don’t know that no one will defend them… Herd of Morons.

I’m from Australia, Western Australia, in fact, capital city of Perth. We had lock down, very few people complained. The only ones complaining were the ones returning home from holidays abroad and bringing home the virus they were carrying. They objected loudly for being placed in quarantine at state’s expense for 14 days until cleared of infection or carrying the virus, then released. 99% of the virus that hit our state was from international visitors and folks coming home from abroad. Cruise ships were the biggest offender, with infected people being allowed off the ships before being checked and cleared. The virus spread mostly from these people. Eventually they were quarantined on a holiday island just off the coast until cleared, they still complained though. Clearly they couldn’t give a rat’s arse about their fellow Aussies becoming infected from them. Over time, the virus burnt out in our state, and we have not had one new infection now for 30 days. Lock downs have finished, everyone is back at work, catching up to lost incomes. We still have a closed border with the rest of the country, there are still infectous people in the Eastern states and our state Government is afraid those infected might find their way into our state. I believe you could ask anyone from Western Australia whether they thought the lock down was not neccessary, and you’ll find it is supported 90% by the people of the state. Good health is better than money in the bank. You can always make money, but you can’t make good health when your DEAD.
