How Do You Adapt When the Rules Are Constantly Changing?


by Joanna Miller, The Organic Prepper:

As soon as it became apparent last summer that Covid was not going to kill everyone within the year, I would occasionally hear people joke that November 4 (aka: Election Day) would be the magic cure. 

Well, they were wrong.

Dr. Fauci waited until Biden’s inauguration to give an update on COVID-19

Dr. Fauci made his return to the Whitehouse on January 21 at a press briefing. During the briefing, Fauci said about the virus, “Right now, it looks like it might actually be plateauing in the sense of turning around.”

Constantly changing rules, numbers, and stats make it difficult to discern truth from fiction

A few months ago, I wrote about how often the facts about COVID change, and none of this surprises me. This “game” goes beyond party politics; I believe the powers that be want to keep all the regular joes in a state of panic. Daisy has reported from the very beginning that the numbers did not add up.

For example, even the CDC admits flu cases are low this year despite a higher number of tests. Maybe the hand-washing, sanitizing, and social-distancing due to Covid has prevented the flu from spreading. Perhaps hospitals have reported things differently this year due to the financial incentives associated with reporting patients as Covid positive

Regardless of the reason, one would think that the dramatic decrease in flu cases would be cause for celebration. Not so. The still CDC urges people to get flu shots because “diseases can strike at any time.” That may be true. However, why are the people in charge of our nation’s health not concerned about the mental health impacts of constantly bombarding the public with messages about one dangerous disease after another?

When do we get a break from the fear and panic?

It seems like the public is teased daily with the thought of going “back to normal.” However, only IF we do exactly as they say and get the vaccine. I don’t have a problem with informed adults receiving the vaccine by choice. I do have a problem with the consolidation of power and the exertion of control.  

The timing of Fauci’s announcement about seeing the light at the end of the Covid tunnel cannot be coincidental. My personal prediction is that things will ease up a little bit. However, with the new mutant strains of Covid, government authorities will have an endless excuse to impose lockdowns as they see fit. Covid will continue to mutate – that’s what viruses do. 

And with the mainstream media reporting every new mutation as though it’s more dangerous than the last, the fuel for those excuses to lock things down will remain readily available. 

As the World Economic Forum’s event comes to an end, what will the results be?

The World Economic Forum met this past week (January 25-29) for The Davos Agenda event. The report on the website reads as follows:

The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated that no institution or individual alone can address the economic, environmental, social and technological challenges of our complex, interdependent world. The pandemic itself will not transform the world, but it has accelerated systemic changes that were apparent before its inception. The fault lines that emerged in 2020 now appear as critical crossroads in 2021. The time to rebuild trust and to make crucial choices is fast approaching as the need to reset priorities and the urgency to reform systems grow stronger around the world.

The Davos Agenda is a pioneering mobilization of global leaders to shape the principles, policies and partnerships needed in this challenging new context. It is essential for leaders from all walks of life to work together virtually for a more inclusive, cohesive and sustainable future as soon as possible in 2021. To this end, the World Economic Forum has served for more than 50 years as a trusted platform where leaders from business, government, international organizations, civil society and academia convene to address critical issues at the start of each year.

An entire week of global programming will be dedicated to helping leaders choose innovative and bold solutions to stem the pandemic and drive a robust recovery over the next year.

As these participants are deciding our fate and the fate of the world, what actions can we take?

“Prepping” is probably the most obvious answer to anyone reading the articles on The Organic Prepper. One of the things I most enjoy about this online community is the massive prepping facets discussed. There have been plenty of articles written about Building a Better Bug Out Bag, and even Often Over-Looked Necessities. You can find bug-out plans, excellent articles on how to survive SHTF events and links to books with even more useful information. You can find just about everything you need on The OP, including How to Prep for 2021. 

I’m not an expert in any of these particular fields. I grew up in the suburbs, and though we were low-income, I still grew up with the mentality that if I did well in school, worked hard, and married a go-getter, my life would continually improve.
