The Weaponization of Caring for Fellow Humans

The Weaponization of Caring for Fellow Humans

Frankly, I never thought I'd write an article like this, especially considering that the whole thing sounds like an oxymoron. Also, let me assure you that I'm not advocating that this is something that should happen but rather that this is something that is happening now, albeit in subtle ways.

Weaponization is the process of turning something into a weapon of sorts, basically anything that can serve as a tool for a tactic or strategy that will increase one's power over someone else. This process is something that's usually related to warfare (e.g., the weaponization of nuclear power in the form of a bomb), but it can take other forms of aggression.

What about the “caring for fellow humans” part though? Well, this is the innate characteristic of any normal human being, since we are social creators (this statement was officially said by Aristotle though it’s quite likely that people from other cultures have said something similar before him). Anyway, caring for others is akin to an instinct of ours, though it takes various subtle forms, enough to justify its classification as an act of love. From the basic empathy we feel when we see someone (whom we don't know personally) suffer needlessly to the care we feel towards the people around us, preventing us from harming them, this is all something that transcends race, gender, and social background. Probably this is the noblest sentiment we all feel (although there are nobler sentiments for sure, not everyone experiences them), so long as we are normal human beings.

The weaponization of this noble quality is when someone turns this into a source for guilt or uses it to manipulate us into a particular course of action. A great example of this twisted phenomenon is when someone (usually in a position of authority) says that we need to wear masks to protect our fellow human beings. This argument is so problematic that it would take pages and pages to go through its various flaws (still, if you wish to learn about the invalidity of this argument, feel free to check any of the articles on the topic in this collection of PDFs I've put together). It's worth noting that if you were to use this in a technical or scientific essay without having any backing from an authority figure, you'd be ridiculed. However, many people nowadays honestly believe that by wearing a mask (or any piece of cloth for that matter, covering their face), they are helping others by mitigating the spread of the Covid-19 thingy. The latter has a survival rate of 99% or so, and at this point, its threat is minimal as more and more people have developed immunity to it, but that's an irrelevant fact to them. The idea of caring for others by wearing a mask has already been weaponized and deployed.

I’m quite optimistic though because a great thinker once said “you cannot full all the people all the time” so it’s a matter of time before all this nonsense is seen for what it is. Science may have its issues but when you go far enough and you look at sufficient independent studies on the matter, there is little doubt about the inefficacy of masks in preventing the spread of a disease, while for a healthy person to wear a mask is as absurd as for a person with dry hair using a hairdryer. Something to think about. Cheers!

Zacharias \ud83d\udc1d Voulgaris Would you please send me a link on the "Minds" post you mentioned? "Faith can have a unifying aspect, which is one of the best antidotes to the separatism we observe. I talk more about that in the other article I wrote today, published on Minds."

Zacharias \ud83d\udc1d Voulgaris “No one is more hated than he who speaks the truth” Plato Who knew this more than Jesus Christ who declared: "I AM Truth" Beware & Be aware. Be careful: There is usually a “little truth behind most lies … LIES are clever in that they may hold some part of truth or manipulate truth… not being able to discern truth causes one to walk toward the LIAR instead of Truth” ~ Dr Everett Piper (book) Not a Daycare: The Devastating Consequences of Abandoning Truth https://www.bebee.com/producer/@fay-vietmeier-pennsylvania/be-aware-don-t-be-a-sheep-don-t-be-a-lemming News FLASH: We live in an “Age of Information” yet: masses of people lack Wisdom, Discernment & Intelligence We live in the “Age of Misinformation” ... there are masses of LYING, LIARS who LIE Self-promoting LIARS & “fake news” broadcasters abound & have NO regard for TRUTH

Zacharias \ud83d\udc1d Voulgaris 2) “Weaponizing care” IS a “crime against humanity” “Crimes against humanity” Randall Burns introduced this video & you shared the transcript on your site (I share this link which has both: the video with transcript of Dr Reiner Fuellmich) https://alachuachronicle.com/video-and-transcript-crimes-against-humanity/ I have found it helpful to reference particular points I’m quoting the Doctor from the video: a few comments which drive home the "WEAPONIZATION" PCR test ... Almost everything is “false positive” “These tests “are fatally flawed and /must immediately be withdrawn unless shown to be fixed” A hopelessly performing test used solely to create FEAR (Sept 20th 2020) Set into “PANIC modes by our own governments” Because people were NOT asking questions To scare people to death To impose the thought upon children that they are responsible for the deaths of their parents & grandparents Increases "cases" are also being used as a weapon to drive FEAR .. and exercise power .. as TYRANNY Initiate AGAIN: businesses & schools being shut down

Zacharias \ud83d\udc1d Voulgaris This comment is from my post: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@fay-vietmeier-pennsylvania/stay-asleep-sweet-sheep I’m sharing it here for the benefit of any who “cares” to read or may have missed it. Response to Harvey Lloyd "A discerning heart seeks knowledge, but the mouth of a fool feeds on folly." Proverbs 15:14 How perfect a Proverb for today. 2) "division is the instrument of man" ~ Harvey Lloyd Thought from the wilderness: While in a time-of-captivity" a "shut-in" time (that lasted more than a decade) which proved to be a time of deep spiritual learning for me. One of the things I learned is that: Spiritual problems require spiritual cures. That might seem simple but it is complex Human beings are complex. Humanity is complex. “here is the deepest secret nobody knows here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life” ~ ee cummings Go deeper to the root. "The Separator ... separates." ~ me Satan is the "Separator" ... THE divisive one. He separates people from God People from one another People from knowing their true identity & purpose. HE root of separation-division is spiritual. The cure for separation-division is spiritual

You are welcome. At times like these, the best we can do is stand together. Faith can have a unifying aspect, which is one of the best antidotes to the separatism we observe. I talk more about that in the other article I wrote today, published on Minds.

Thanks for that. It seems to me that beyond all the fancy wordsmithing and fragile rhetoric exhibited in this article, the crux of the matter is a matter of priority. Namely, do you prioritize being true to yourself or to whoever you answer to (the latter could be a group of people)? In the short term, it seems that the latter strategy is preferable but in the long term, you may want to apply the former, since, at the end of the day, you'll be answering to yourself for all the choices you've made. No matter how you sugarcoat the latter, e.g. through some ideology or some value system that may or may not stand the test of time, when the curtain falls, no justification would be good enough if what you've done has hurt others. So, yes, authenticity is important, though in this world, in this day and age, I'd be more diplomatic about it. Everyone values the truth but few people have the stomach for it, in my experience. Cheers!

I believe there are targeted groups. The elderly must go because they remember and you cannot reset history with so many memories around to tell the tale. The vaccine-injured must go because they are evidence that these things are not what they seem. Workers are what is wanted--not thinkers. Many of them will go... the rest is anyone's guess.

The easiest one to understand is the one listed here. I did not find time to organize articles and links, so I'd have to take time to do that and time is too short. You can probably locate them.

History seems to repeat itself. This time around, it's not an ethnic minority that's being targeted but humanity as a whole. I wonder who's going to come to our rescue though...

I don't know much about this topic. Would you care to share some resources you find most useful to start with?

Not to mention many "techniques" were used in Nazi Germany. Murderous medicine: Nazi doctors, human experimentation, and Typhus https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1297275/

Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee

Excellent--and the link to the articles is great. I've seen many of them, but not all. I do know that "care" is a word that makes me run. "Care" does not mean what I used to think it does. I no longer know if it ever did...

Care will become an Olympic sport. It appears that everyone is vying for a Gold Medal. Care having become weaponized we can identify its weapons. Shame, Guilt and anxiety. Would enjoy your thoughts on how “Authenticity” as a movement has transformed into the care wars and the contribution to dividing folks?
