A Tokyo post-apocalyptic dystopian walk-through documentary—You need to see this!
By Thorsten J Pattberg for the Saker Blog
Elon Musk this week tweeted that Japan is over. Finally an influential person, a billionaire, sheds light on this neurotic nation of dying turtles. I share little sympathy for the Japanese, because they chose 70 US military occupation, 40 years economic decline and childlessness propaganda, and now they are getting more iPhones, more Starbucks Cafes, and four Pfizer Booster Clot Jabs, and they all wear the plague masks to show they’re definitively Asian. Taiwan is much worse, though, and China takes the cuckoo of course. The following presentation is from January, and I got death threats, and the situation is no way different in May, so I send you this file to be preserved for eternity. Anyways, look at these brainwashed retards and their mass formation psychosis three years (!) into the brain flu—baka!
[Transcript, slightly modified]
Good morning from Tokyo! It’s Tuesday the 4th of January 2022. Has Japan fallen? Well today we are going to have a little walk from a suburb of Tokyo into the center of Tokyo, Shibuya, and let’s find out if the Japanese, as a people, have succumbed and declared defeat against the coronavirus measures.
I’m recording while walking because I think you have to see what’s going on in this country. See the car there? The driver? He’s wearing a mask!
Now this is the beautiest of all days. Look at the sunshine! It’s uh midday.
Beautiful weather and everything… Everyone is wearing masks. Everyone!
It’s been going on for two years now, starting in January 2020. Now, the Japanese are usually a very submissive and meek population. This has some advantages, right. If you work in a group against the virus, it’s good.
But sometimes you can go overkill, like when everybody falls in line goose stepping.
I mean this is ridiculous: there are people walking alone on the streets with the face mask. No person around. There are people cycling alone with face mask. And another one! A young person.
I’ve seen this now for almost two years going on. It’s everywhere the same. In the suburbs you see old ladies in their little garden front yards, watering the plants alone and wearing face masks.
What are they so afraid of? They’re watching too much regime TV?
Now let’s find some heroes who don’t wear masks. This one.. no no no sorry, he has the mask! He’s the one. That’s a hero yeah yeah. That is a hero… there’s another one… total failure! Face mask.
Another one. Face mask in black. Total failures!
Another two, very young athletic young men, wearing face masks on their bikes. Nah, you know this makes me sad. There’s another one, a female, coming from shopping. Makes me very sad, because as a foreigner, of course, you look at this and… uh it is easy to point out weird stuff that a people is doing to itself.
What’s the science behind that? I mean is there a plague going on in this country? No it’s not, it’s absolutely not. There’s no plague going on in this country at the moment. I mean this week they’re testing like hell and they have like a hundred positive corona tests, right? A hundred positives in the entire country, that’s ridiculous!
You know overall in the last two years there have been literally a little bit more than I don’t know what is it? Eight thousand? Eight thousand or ten thousand corona deaths. There are more suicides in this country, more suicides than corona deaths.
Okay I’m switching back [the camera] now. You have to see this to believe it! Just passed a jogger wearing a face mask, poor guy, didn’t film him.
Okay, as you can see, the streets are pretty empty.
It’s a working day, everybody should be out you know, doing something. This is good for the economy right, but people are keeping social distance. I guess I mean [look] there are some people talking over there, and uh they’re keeping the social distance with their masks on.
Good for you, yeah very good, so next one, yeah bicycle here. I want a face mask, yeah. Next is old man here, he has to wear a mask; he’s probably uh three times waxed but HEHASTO wear face masks, no?
Another one yeah, a nice group, probably family or friends, all wearing face masks. It’s good to protect your relatives and friends you know; they might fall dead or something ah what can I say?
Imagine you’re a foreigner in this country and you are NOT wearing face masks. I mean you’re destroying their entire theatre.
Think about that… not good. I mean, I’m compliant you know. If I go to the supermarket, I wear a mask and uh would you know it, I got “the jabs” of course – two of them!
Ah yeah old lady wears a mask, good for you! That’s another one uh very a hero walking alone outside with a mask, always good to signal that you’re in compliance with the government. What are you so afraid of?
Okay back… back to the vaccination mandate of course it’s uh it’s not forced it’s not like uh the thing they’re doing in Austria or Australia at the moment.
Not officially enforced… that means they can’t force you to take the vax. But if you don’t have the vax you cannot work, and they will probably fire you and, you know, DEHUMANIZE you in all ways, all kinds of ways. The Japanese certainly have their ways to enforce ideology upon their people.
There’s another lone wolf on the right just walking all by himself with a mask – don’t! I don’t understand it, you know, where do you want to go with?
It’s been two years now, man… WAKE UP!
Well I have seen it all, have seen uh private parties inside where everybody is wearing a mask. And I’ve seen neighbors on the door: We’re in a mask, don’t come in! Very much protect yourself, protect the country against a deadly virus where nobody is dying from… only people over the age of 85.
Okay as you can see it’s uh it’s a very lovely day today… you know I feel a bit sorry to show you all of this.
I’ve been witnessing this now for one or two years and yeah this blows my mind. What can I say um, is this a huge IQ test?
You know THE POPE himself… he’s not wearing face masks! And certainly not our millionaires and our leaders all over the world – the governments, you know, if they’re alone… if they’re among themselves, our rulers don’t wear masks. Why, well because they don’t have to.
There’s absolutely no danger, and the masks are not really helpful, and especially not if you already have two vaccinations and the booster shot. [Quote by Dr. Anthony Fauci:]
“There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask when you’re in the middle of an outbreak. Wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is.”
Very lonely, singular people riding alone on their bikes wearing face masks under the bright sky and the freshest air you can imagine…this is nuts, isn’t it? Most of the people should be at work in their offices, wearing face masks of course and keeping social distance… lots of rules to follow… lots of overwork, low pay.
It’s a bit weird to walk around and talk to yourself on camera, but you know this is a historic documentary; somebody has to do it. So, this little kid here is left outside without a mask; no dangers for the kids, we haven’t waxed them yet, yeah the virus poses no threat to her kids.
Nice all wearing masks. Postal workers. Very important, essential workers with “plague diapers,” right??
You’re not getting it… all the false promises: get vaxxed, two weeks and we are over this… no no. it’s not going to happen: you’re not getting your freedoms back, man, never, will not happen. And certainly not in Japan. This country is over. This will be your new clothes you have to wear for the next 10 years.
The Japanese always were a little bit… you know… a little bit weak against viruses in general. This is not to shame them or anything; they just had lots of influenza pandemics here in the previous years, and it’s uh… it’s… it’s awful! I myself caught influenza and I thought I was dying. It’s a “man’s flu” – men are meant to suffer more than women from that. We think we’re going to die, but we’re not. Just two, three days real pain… and then you’re over it. But of course if you’re old, you can die. That hasn’t changed much in history, it was always like this.
Tokyo now has a vaccination rate of (allegedly) eighty percent. EIGHTY PERCENT! So most of the people you see here are vaccinated. Do they loosen the coronavirus measures? No, of course not.
In 2008, I think, Japan suffered from a huge influenza pandemic; people forgot about it already, but it was intense, and the international medias (the Americans were the forerunners),they called it “the swine flu” – because it was from China you know. They wanted to shame the Asians: oh it’s always “the Asians,” isn’t it? The “swine flu” is coming, oh dear it’s so brutal.
Ah more people died from the swine flu than from the normal influenza, so they had a big program here; they controlled the borders, they made checks – but nothing compares to what we see now with this new virus. Right, I mean, this is insane. I’m walking here… if you’ve seen a person without a mask… I HAVEN’T.
I haven’t, and this is outside the shops! If you go inside, you have to wear a mask. If you’re a good Japanese person, you know how to follow orders. I think they don’t realize how dangerous this is, how dangerous… I mean, what’s next? What’s next, what do they want you to think and do next? Do they want you to throw yourself in a war against China next or what? It’s ridiculous. Do they want you to… I don’t know… to stop mating? To stop procreating? “We have too many people, stop it!” They could make it happen; [in fact] they’ve been doing it for the last 50 years.
Okay, we are closing on the station, the train station, so you can imagine that everybody around the train station certainly is going to wear masks, everybody.
There are media people at the airports in Narita and Haneda, lurking in the shadowy corners, waiting for aliens to enter the country not wearing a mask. And even if they’re wearing a mask, they’re still asking them “What do you do in Japan, it’s a dangerous time, we have a pandemic, why do you come to Japan?” They do that and then those poor foreigners end up on national TV – the NHK. It’s comparable to the British BBC or the German ZDF – state television, scaring the people.
I’m crossing the road, now going into the station… and I’m driving to the hot spot, the center of Tokyian civilization, to Shibuya, the famous crossing.
Let’s see what’s going on there. So this is going to be good… you see, I’m not wearing a mask right now, so what am I going to do? I’m double vaccinated. I’m as safe as they come. So here we go… you know I love public transport in Tokyo. It’s very convenient, and it’s not rush hour at the moment, so you don’t see the overcrowded trains so that’s good for us here for our purposes.
People from the city get a little bit geeky or snobbish, like in New York or Los Angeles, maybe. In Tokyo, certainly. You don’t need cars, it’s so convenient: public transport, hah! You live in the countryside, you know nothing: the people here, they really don’t need cars – that’s true. BUT, the rich and powerful still have [cars]! I know families who never use public transport, ever.
Why, PT is for the peasants and serfs! They [the rich] have cars of course. Oh, here we go… everybody’s wearing masks. Very, very compliant… I love it, it’s a good country.
So I wonder, might they come and arrest me like they do in Austria or in Britain? Saw some videos about Australia. Well they technically can’t arrest me, because there is no official lockdown, right. And there is no mask mandate. So, I can wear it, or not – my choice. It feels, I do have to say this, it feels uncomfortable… So what I’m going to do is, out of respect for the people around me… I’m wearing my plague diaper on the train. Can be packed. And you do have to play along. Don’t offend the host. I love the Japanese, I love Japan… so I’m wearing a plague diaper – on the train.
[A moment later.] All right, that took forever, but here we go… it is usually very silent on a Japanese train. I’m basically the only guy who talks loudly… We just sit around in silence. They are watching their cell phones. Maybe it’s a good thing… they should try this [silence] in New York, hehe… or in Boston. No foreigners, so loud and boisterous. Everybody behaves. Very interesting. Good for public morals, I guess.
[A few minutes later.] All right, Shinjuku! We have to change the line very quickly. Very quickly, into the next one… in the direction of Shibuya.
A lot more people here on this train; everybody’s masked, very interesting.
[Arrived.] Okay, let’s do it… we are in Shibuya. See if we can find the right exit. A lot of construction work has been going on in Shibuya for the last two years. They worked very hard, “the essential workers.” Construction work never stopped. Supermarkets never stopped. And would you know, nobody died. Nobody was in acute danger.
Okay, let’s be the time wisely on our way to the famous Shibuya crossing. We might as well talk about the situation of the children in this country. Japan is used to catastrophes and emergencies such as earthquakes and tsunamis or influenza and all that, so um they didn’t close down the entire school system like they did in other countries – in Europe or America. They didn’t do that, or when they did it, they did it for a month or so, and that was it.
That said, they still authorized all these measures… you know: wear a mask, social distance, never see each other’s faces, forgo clubs and social activities. Here I am looking at the famous Shibuya crossing through the window… there it is!
Ah oh, it’s quite busy. A lot of Japanese flags. That’s always good, you know… be patriotic! You can’t do this in Germany. Good very good, and uh people start crossing soon, but now I’m still inside [the station]; you see these entrances are all closed… they have them rerouted, I see.
[Watching a crossing.] Far less people than you would expect… but hey, they closed down this road down right here, in front of us. It’s closed. It’s not really a complete crossing anymore…
Opposite is that famous Starbucks Coffee. Great to see the great relationship between the USA and Japan. You must understand that the vaccination is made by Pfizer/Biontech, so that is basically Made in American. Yes, Biontech is located in Germany, but it’s not really German at all… it’s all American-financed.
The Japanese were told: Here, you must jab all the people in your country – the entire population! The Japanese said “No, wait, we have to test it first!“ They did that with 40,000 volunteers over 3 months. And that’s why the mass vaccination campaign in Japan was delayed. The “international media” was outraged: The Japanese are too slow! No, they’re not too slow. They’re trying to protect the people against a bio–weapon attack from the United States. That was actually a very wise choice made by the government. They should be very concerned.
Do not trust the occupiers! Never do. If they tell you there’s a medicine that cures all diseases, be very careful. Watch out, especially if it’s a profitable pharmaceutical gene therapy that’s said to work on all humans, you know… one solution that fits all the people in the world. I don’t think so.
[Finally,] here we are outside in beautiful Shibuya, I love it. The weather is fantastic. But still no people without a mask. I thought we might find some freedom fighters here, but no no. Shouldn’t there be some punks or you know… anti-social elements or anarchists? No, no luck today, just obedient sheeple.
O this is always so exciting. I’ll do the crossing, I’ll do the crossing… [hurry], if I can make it. No, I didn’t make it.
There’s the first bus coming, I didn’t make it, so sorry. But it looks fantastic… I just love the city.
Never give up, Tokyo yeah. You’re still alive somewhat.
Waiting is over, let’s do the crossing together… oh I love it… it’s very exciting, all these people with their plague diapers. They’re coming my way. I’m not wearing my mask, no way!
So do you realize the problem, I mean do you see the problem we have here at hand? We have two years of a ‘non-pandemic’. There NEVER WAS a dangerous pandemic, in this country at least, and the people are still wearing masks, and they are forced with propaganda by the US occupiers [to comply]… and of course they’re participating in a vicious enemy propaganda against China [the origin of the virus], so it all fits neatly together:
With such a compliant population, you can do everything with them, you can tell them anything… and they have no access to outside [information] sources.
If I were to watch, say German media all day long, I would go mad. Same here, it’s insane. These people are basically uh they are fascists, right. Same with what’s going on in Germany and Austria: its fascism, plain in sight. It’s really serious, but they have no way of knowing that, because they don’t see outside information.
How could people know that they’re in this mind prison, that they cannot escape? I’m getting really serious. [Look around.] I might be the only person here in the entire Shibuya not wearing a mask. Argh, where’s this going to go…
About the information… what can they know if they’re watching NHK state TV in Japan all day long? Their newspapers are completely state-controlled, with American oversight.
If you read the English language newspaper in Japan, The Japan Times, this is The New York Times Incorporated. It’s American, so that’s US propaganda.
Walking in the streets of Shibuya, just circling the center, and I am still looking for people without a mask – I can’t find them.
Do you realize the seriousness of this problem? They are not stopping this behavior in the next 10 years – I’m telling you. This is serious. Especially if you look at the intensity of the propaganda targeting… females! Women, mothers. Mothers care for their families, they care for the elderly and for the kids. So you target them and then all the men will fall in line. Nobody wants to offend the harmony and peace, and I get that.
This is hard stuff, man. It’s unnecessarily dystopian hell. Look at her, in a car, she’s alone. She’s in her car alone, wearing a mask. Can’t believe it!
Ah, don’t get too over-excited. Just keep walking…
I wanted to show you this because this is documentary material. See that entire family over there? They’re probably sitting at home all day together, and if they had the virus, they would infect each other at home. So when you go out, why do you wear masks when you’re with your own family just walking around in the fresh air, I don’t get it.
Kids are not required to wear masks, but this one wears a mask, GOOOD… good for his protection!
You know what’s going on over there? There’s the Shibuya Apple Store!
God, I love you Americans. You are great. Yes, I know, America’s good for Japan.
The store’s crowded. People have to wait in lines? Ah, because of the social distancing, I see! Good, good for you to protect your people when they buy US Apple stuff, nice.
Well, we really don’t have much choice, right? We’re all having the same devices. So the internet… Can the internet help? Well, the internet was supposed to be a portal to the world. Why don’t we get our information from the internet? There’s a one little problem:
THERE’S NO open internet anymore! You know that, right? You know that Google is censoring and shadow-banning each and every alternative voice out there. ..
Ah, here’s a brave father… that’s good man,… yeah he’s pulled his mask down to his chin. Good man… get some fresh air, man, it’s good for you [and your son]!
I was saying… uh the internet won’t help. It’s not free. It’s highly censored… and by whom? BY AMERICAN COMPANIES! Ha ha, you can’t make this [ __ ] up!
The “freest country in the world” is censoring the entire world. It’s no different than China. I have lived in China a long time and can tell you that third world countries in general have much more freedom than you’d think, because they have less regulations.
Yes, there are FAR LESS regulations and laws in third world countries, so you’re basically much freer to do things; you can say all sorts of things that you can’t say in the west… because you would immediately lose your western job, your standing. The west would destroy you.
The west is not free. It’s all a big farce. Okay, now Japan on paper is “a democracy.” What’s that? Democracy basically is: if the United States of America conquered you, or defeated you in a war, that’s “democracy.” You noticed that it’s the same with Germany and Italy, right? If they defeat you, then you become a democracy.
Oh, what’s that? There’s a biker… the coolest bike I’ve seen in years. Amazing. Well, he probably needs his face mask because of the non-existent wind today but anyway yeah it’s good to have a face mask if you’re riding a bike.
About the vaccination process. All the people get a letter from their local governments for an appointment for vaccination; you can make it or drop it, just don’t go [if you don’t want to], but WE had to do it because… you know… they threaten you with travel bans, and you already know there might be complications for the kids at school. If they know that one of the foreign parents is not vaccinated… you expect all kinds of [ __ ] is gonna happen, so you do the compliance thing.
You go get the first and, a few weeks later, the second jab, and it’s all right, but the paperwork was very interesting because there was a section where you had to agree that makers Pfizer und Biontech are not taking any responsibilities for side effects and so on.
They basically make you sign your consent, and I said No, I’m not going to sign it. You know it, I know it – we are being forced… basically it’s a forced, mandatory vaccination.
That was a big problem. Him and two nurses were all over me, trying to explain it to me, and my Japanese is very bad, so he spoke uh in English, and then he figured out I’m German, so he said oh it’s good he studied in Germany, and that it is a Biontech vaccine. It must be safe because it’s from Germany.
Also, if I get this vaccination, I would surely be permitted to travel back to the European Union anytime. It is a good deal, right? But I said I wouldn’t give my fake signature, no matter what, because the vaccine is forced.
So what he did was he scribbled something himself and made a tick in the right box on my behalf and uh that was it. I got the vaccination, never signed for it.
So how far will they go with this and do that to their people?
I’ve noticed outspoken philosophers and pundits in the world, talking heads, they’re experiencing the same. They’re saying something like well
“I complied [Jordan Peterson quote] the damn vaccine; here’s the deal guys – I’ll get the vaccine, you [ __ ] leave me alone! And did that work?”
No, the measures are still there, they’re put in there for us to be controlled and to be pushed around. We are pushovers!
[Gad Saad quote] “An asserted, orchestrated dance between a bunch of people who are really keen on seizing power, and the rest of the people who are more than willing to sit quietly and apathetically.”
[Robert Malone, MD, quote] “Any information or discussion which is contrary to ‘that truth’ will be suppressed.“
And when you see all these pictures I’m doing for you today, you get the idea why that is. There is mass censorship all over the world, because this situation here is PERFECT – we have them ALL IN LINE, EVERYBODY… the people, they’re afraid of human contact!
Jesus, and this is um the middle of the week; most Japanese are sitting at home doing uh “home office” or becoming unemployed. The government doesn’t want to speak about it. It’s a socialist society, so they can always make up some social programs. Nobody, nobody’s really starving yet, but there’s a lot of poverty going on. They’re just good at hiding. Basically, same in France or Germany, you know, the homeless are hidden in social housing.
Wait, there’s one guy… without a mask! Good man good man. Good man, bro, love you okay… but the rest of you: sheeple [Meeh, meeh] !
Okay, we make a little round and we are back to the Shibuya crossing, and I want to show you some other places…
Look at them! Young people, a group of friends right… are your face masks really necessary? I don’t think so. We’re destroying the social fabric!
We’re back at the station. Hell, I wonder what will they do with all these office buildings [skyscrapers] when everybody’s working from home now.
All these masked warriors… very good oh it’s a French mask! Viva la France!
Unfortunately enough, I know a lot of upper class people, naturally, here in Tokyo. And they’re having a blast! Really, they’re enjoying it. If you work for the government, just imagine you can sit at home for two years now “doing your home office work” and get the same salary, and even get a hardship bonus – it’s fantastic. You don’t even spend money to commute; only “the essential workers” have to commute… not the upper management. The bosses sit at home and give orders via Zoom call, no problem.
Okay, inside the station… I think I’m still the only one without a mask. [Look around.] Yeah I’m pretty sure about it actually, yes. We might have passed…I don’t know… 40,000 people today. This is ridiculous. See, in Shibuya there live about two million people. Maskless, I might be the only one…
Right now comes the train for Harajuku, so here we go… just in case you want to know: I have no animosity, [so on the train] I’m wearing my facemask.
[10 minutes later.] Here we arrive at Harajuku. Now that is a very interesting place. Harajuku is mostly for younger people – fashionable people and teenagers.
Tokyo’s young adults come here for shopping or showing off their latest trends and fashion. So my guess is we find some maskless people here… because the young do always rebel, don’t they?
When they’re away from their parents’ house, wearing crazy fashion, they “rebel,” right? They’re probably smoking marijuana. Or maybe not in this country. But they do rebel, without supervision, so we might find some troublemakers here, let’s see.
First, I gotta take my own mask off. You can see my rash. I get skin rash actually from this medical mask, it’s terrible. Everyone else though is wearing a mask, so I’m feeling a little bit like some apostate. It’s above the heretic. I reject the system.
Not criticizing it. I’m not criticizing anything, I’m rejecting it. I’m NOT COMPLYING. Okay, here we are in the famous Harajuku district, it’s past one o’clock.
Very crowded, but not crowded enough. I’ve seen better times here.
But there is no social distancing here! THAT’S GOOD.
Right? Do you see that! As I said, trust the youth! They have instinct. If there parents are away they are now wearing… oh oh no they do, they do wear masks, or they do… oh I was wrong, I was totally wrong, I was completely wrong! I was completely wrong oh no how could I be so wrong?
What a godless place, what a godless place!
Oh oh yeah those two are eating donuts, this is good, this is good: if you eat, you can’t wear a mask. This is excellent. A very good idea. So get yourself a 100 yen (one dollar) coffee and walk around with a coffee cup – THAT will help and make the difference.
Oh the young people can’t be counted on. Young adults no no no no there’s no hope. They’re all falling in line! Two years after the corona event: just globally enforced compliance. If this does not scare you, what does?
People, this is outside. Don’t even go inside the shops. O the sight of it! I can’t take it. Too much for me.
Oh dear, this is the rebel generation? Have some self-respect. Anybody, ANYBODY, without a mask after two years into this? Japan never had 500 positive tested cases a day in Tokyo.
But nobody, nobody died. I’m sorry, I have to correct that: one person died today! It’s old people who die, and death is inevitable – especially if you have other illnesses.
Now here is a positive scene. What we see here [a gathering] is… we have young people NOT social distance keeping, that’s very good, it’s very progressive, man, I love it.
I love it when young people are showing the stink finger to the government. They’re still wearing masks of course but uh no social distance, definitely not no, no there’s no social distance, so this is good.
There’s hope, after two years of living like this, there’s hope… oh it’s very crowded, there’s absolutely no social distance going on, definitely not, so I’m here in the midst of it. I’m the heretic. I’m really the only one without a mask, seriously.
We’ve all seen the pictures of Jeff Bezos on his private yacht, you know… wearing no mask, surrounded by his masked peasants serving him stuff.
Just like with all our leaders: Boris Johnson in the UK having Christmas parties while his peasants, his underlings, the entire country… were under strict lockdown measures. It’s ridiculous because, internationally speaking,
it’s total global chaos right now.
China by the way has completely locked itself out of the system. The Chinese are going their own way. Of course it’s trade as usual, but only if it’s good for China.
They’re saying um it was probably maybe maybe the virus was leaked from the Wuhan lab or maybe it was uh brought in by the 300 American soldiers visiting Wuhan in 2019, who knows.
I think it was a [bio] attack, and that’s what they’re doing: they’re going their own way, they’ve had enough of it… you know… of all that western pressure. So China is locked up for the next 10 years, 20 years… yeah it’s serious.
It’s that serious. The Japanese are uh inviting some foreigners back, and so does Europe, right, but of course mostly the VIPs [very important persons]. I can see them on Linkedin. It’s uh it’s disgusting! These you know well-paid high officials, they have no shame. They just keep traveling and they’re posting pictures of themselves on empty airplanes.
So having said that there is no global solution. Do you get it? Even if they vaccinate the entire continent of Europe and if they vaccinate the entire continent of America, you will have no trust in the world.
If you travel from Europe to Asia, they do not trust you, do you understand? You can have as many boosters as you want – if you arrive in Japan or in China, they will test you again and you have to show your certificates and it will be an app for sure.
They have it in Japan, it’s already starting in Europe. It is on the way, and there will be an app and there might be implants… that’s easily done. And even if not… I mean… your mobile phone is your implant, right? You have it with you all the time. It’s your everything!
Again, this is Harajuku, a place for future people, and you see a lot of young people obviously walking straight into my camera, and they’re having their plague diapers on them. Nobody has any self-respect or an inch of creativity or freedom of thought left. Better for them to comply; don’t think.
See it for yourself, this is outrageous. Do you see where this formation is going? Okay, let me continue with the story about trust in the world. It’s completely gone.
They will strip you naked and trace you… basically when you enter into a foreign country; they might accept your papers of origin, but they might not, and then send you into quarantine, and you say wait wait in my country they told me if I had two vaccinations, and had two boosters, I’d be okay. But no no you’re not okay! If you come to Asia, do you understand, they don’t trust you.
This extreme dystopian worldview, this distrustful world is going to continue for quite a while, it’s serious.
My guess is that by now we have passed a lot of beautiful stunning young people, like this handsome young man here in his black attire, and this lady over there, also very nice, but uh I couldn’t tell from the faces.
You know I’m just thinking… Maybe they’re wearing nice clothes, but I CAN’T SEE THEIR FACES… really ridiculous this is; Harajuku – a place for the future people. But if you have a young, compliant and unimaginative population like this, where do you want to go with it? Will it help you in the future, I don’t think so.
Managing all the Japanese maths and science and kanji studies… yeah very good doing of things… but you’re not really ruling the world, are you? You need creativity, and if you don’t have it on your young people, you’re lost! LOOK AT THIS!
There is a couple holding hands, wearing masks. Friends, don’t do this! People have to stop this, this is absolutely mind-blowing at that point.
Let us talk about more positive things. People are realizing that they’re really alone. There’s NOBODY to rescue them. It’s the complete destruction of society, I mean… they don’t even trust their own partners.
Just look at this, they’re holding their partner’s hand, they are seeing each other at home, and they’re still wearing masks outside.
It’s ridiculous. So everybody is also on their mobile devices. At home, everybody is doing their own thing, nobody’s trusting the government. Trust is over. They know, they are the serfs and slaves, and they’re in this prison state, they know that. So they try to figure out solutions.
It will all be digital, the digital world, right. They will want to trace you digitally, so that they can punish you immediately, when you disobey.
Hang on a second, I have no money in this card. I gotta recharge my Suica card. Then I can pass through the ticket gate.
So there are guards everywhere… I don’t know what they’re doing exactly. What are they on the lookout for? Can’t be me, even when I’m the only person not wearing a mask, there no official mask mandate. Do you see that I just passed them?
I just passed another official, and there is no enforced mandate, they do not force anybody. Every person of the tens of thousands we passed today, everybody is doing it on their own free will, wearing the fake plague diaper! Frightening.
We have seen enough, I think. You got the picture. We are heading back home. We are leaving the city center, we are leaving Harajuku, we are leaving Shibuya, we are returning home to the suburbs. We have seen it all, and I think you’ve got an idea about how this is and where this is going. It’s not going to stop, guys… it’s not going to stop.
[After a few minutes.] Okay, I’m back in the suburbs in Nakano. So let me summarize what we just saw, the experience.
I think I’ve sufficiently shown and demonstrated that there is absolutely no forced vaccination or pass requirement. Nobody is going to stop you. You’re not required to wear masks.
I have also sufficiently proven to you, however, that the people do it anyway. There’s full compliance. This is assisted living. It is guided living… with the promise that there will be an end… in fantasy land with flying cars and I don‘t know.
A cashless society in which everybody is happy with their mobile phone in their bird cage or rabbit hole. Where they live spend-time alone. What do I know, but this is the situation here in Japan, guys. There will be NO uprising like we’ve seen in Europe or America or Australia. There will be none of it. This country here, Japan, is very disciplined, very civilized.
They believe that their government is having their back, and let’s hope this is true; let’s hope they’re going through this .- their way. This is all I have to say. I wish… I wish more people would stop, and stop wearing masks, and [start] being human again, and to be normal again.
They’re all vaccinated, I repeat it again, they’re all vaccinated. It’s been two years of pandemic like this, with no end in sight. Full compliance everywhere, wow… this is it. We’re going to have to live with it, and on to THE NEXT TWO YEARS!
[30 minutes later.] Ah, it’s so good to be back in the outskirts of the city.
You know… tranquility and uh not this mass hysteria… and freedom… I don’t know no… wait [a bicycle with a masked woman on it approaches]… what is this?
No no no no… you don’t need a mask!

Man…you are really making my life complicated…how about a few memes, jokes?
Tha only people still worried about the rona – are all vaccinated…🧐
First thang I was gonna ask halfway through was, if the rona-famine on the site is officially ovah…
As fer Japan – if the author doesn`t like it, why stay? I have never been, would like to visit sometime, but I understand it is – Japan.
What did I miss?
Perhaps you missed the main message of the author about Zombification of the entire population of a country in the hands of the WEF globalists.
Thanks that someone gets it. I would bet 10 ice creams that you are not from the US.
Its the zombification that he is talking about.
…correct. I’m not from the US, but lived in N. America long enough to know a little bit about how things function over there. I now live in Iran but still remember how much brainless television commercials people were forced to watch. No wonder they don’t get it when Russia repeatedly warns about the spread of Neonazi ideology in W. Ukraine. May be the Russian PR office should include a couple of silly commercials at each 30 seconds intervals while it’s trying to report about the Neonazis. Just a suggestion.
My point is: it has always been that way.
As goes one, go all. It`s always been one huge “lemming camp”. Nobody sticks out.
That was my impression of the place from decades before…
I am not saying it is right or wrong – just the way it seems to b.
What am I missing still?
You are talking about normal group thinking. But there is a difference. You can group think and agree around the right ethical things to do.
But this here is deliberate mass psychosis done by psychological campaigns by deep state after many decades of research:
CIA has since 1948 tried and experimented to find a psychological way on how to make people do things that are opposed and destructive to their own interest; perception management, behavioral science, ISIS, m.m.
I guess…it`s just Japan is not an outstanding example to point to when you proclaim: Look! They are all in lockstep!
limit use of internet to one hour a day
now that’s the way to have a massive violent all age all gender all political stripe would band together and coup the government in a jewyorkminute
While I found the essay quite long yet it is interesting his observations of Japanese behaviour. Yet I felt it violated sakers rules that were set way back : my observation. Borderline stuff in here. Thus almost impossible to comment on or around topic without breaking Saker guidelines . I am connected to doctors4covidethics.org and am quite open to many scientific views and research around this tetchy “topic”. We meet weekly to discuss new research in this field and publish findings when necessary.
It will be interesting to see how folks negotiate or navigate this controversial topic….. The essay is quite a minefield of subjective but quite fascinating observations. I have spent considerable time living amongst the Japanese and what he observes is correct in my humble view
Thus I wont comment further…
The topic of this article surprised me a little, given the rules.
And again, thank you Amarynth, staff, and mods, for your heroic efforts to keep the blog going.
You might as well know, in addition to being an armchair general, I am also an expert in virology, epidemiology, a nutritionist, etc. etc. etc. :-) :-) :-)
The scope of the operation behind all this mass psychosis is truly mind-boggling! Dr. Peter McCullough, a fearless commenter on this issue, has mentioned the malfeasance affecting medical management, intimidating doctors in every country in Zone A (I don’t know about Zone B) if they step over the invisible line and give non-approved advice to patients. Healthcare and hospital administrators apparently also fear reprisals. Dr. McCullough said he has been threatened, sued, and the medical board threatened to revoke his license — despite all his credentials, publications, etc.
This is essentially another color revolution, with a spiky virus logo instead of a clinched fist. And it is amazing to what extent formerly respectable institutions and publications have been infiltrated and co-opted.
Oh, the blog will keep going fine.
But you touch on part of what Thorsten touches on here. He is saying — where is life! Not on the organizational level, but the level of social human interaction.
People should read carefully .. take another look at the lede .. post-apocalyptic dystopian walk-through.
It is impossibloe to discuss the dystopia intelligently without discussing the untruths that were used to construct it.
Good catch, Eagle Eye, and very well stated.
Oh, these so-called organizations supposedly sacred cows will do and say anything as long as you run the green in under their nose, our so called elected under some grand democracy, maybe the glowing light on the hill officials which was bought long ago will do the same, which as a rule shows just how far any nation has declined. As my father always said, the American people will go for anything as long they think they are getting something for free, which means they are the biggest suckers in the world as nothing is ever free from the government except their propaganda of course.
The decline of Japanese economy since especially 1990 has been staggering. However those who have studied correlation between demographics and economic growth found that nation 48 years after birth rate have peaked and then start to go down fast will face economic stagnation. There were never baby boomers in Japan after 1945 like in so many western countries. Most European countries faced heavy decline of birth rate after 1965. It’s easy to understand why 2010’s was the beginning of the end of European Union as important economic player. China will face it after 2030. USA has better demographics but not with white folks. Their demographics is almost as poor as those of Europeans. In USA, France, YK, Sweden, Italy, Spain and Benelux-countries we will see huge population change and end of Europe as continent of Europeans.
India and Muslim world without forgetting fast growing African population are where future is. Those who breed, they at the end will win.
“The decline of Japanese economy since especially 1990 has been staggering. ”
According to Professor Richard Werner, The Princes of the Yen, this decline was engineered by the Japanese Central Bank, at the behest of under the “tutelage” of American “advisors.” Per Werner the goal was not only to slow down the Jap. economy but to destroy it as a model to other nations, esp. in the third world, for how to make your economy grow.
I haven’t read the book, just listened to some of Werner’s (brilliant) interviews.
Here is a documentary that tells the story of the post-WW2 Japanese economy as explained in Princes of the Yen—which was a bestseller in Japan, BTW:
Have you ever heard of “Plaza Accord”? US forced “Palza Accord” upon Japan, which prevented Japanese companies from competing with US and led to stagnation/delcine of Japanese economy for the next fourty years till now.
US is trying to do the same to kill Chinese economy by sanctioning Huawei and other Chinese hi-tech companies, imposing punitive tariffs, kidnapping Huawei CFO, forcing sale of TikTok, etc. so as to extract a similar “Palaz Accord”.
Apart from economic warfare, China has beening facing information warfare, both inside and outside China.
Quite a number of people question China’s covid lock down strategy, but do you know just before the current big covid wave, which is the biggest since Wuhan breakout two year ago:
– Chinese Custom in Chengdu recently found swabs with saliva without being sealed in foil packages sent in from South Korea to a bio test company in China;
(We all know that America has bio-labs in S. Korea and used to sent out live anthrax sample per postal FedEx service to the Osan Air Base in Pyeongtaek, about 70 km south of the capital Seoul, in 2015.)
– The inspectors in Shenyang, a city in North East of China, found covid positive samples on the inside and outside tof the package of cheery tomatos, which then traced 11 people who came into contacts with these package in the market are now covid positive: https://m.thepaper.cn/baijiahao_17677862.
(This is not the first time China found out the covid postive samples on the package of imported food: last year the small scale of covid breakout in Beijing was also traced back to the package of imported food.)
– Before Winter Olympics began, a dozen of covid cases broke out in Beijing, which was traced back to the zero patient who received FedEx from Canada, the airway bill was polluted with covid.
– Beijing Health QR system was attacked by oversea IPs during Winter Olympics.
– Empty container with 2000+ cockroach arrived Xiamen Custom, China
All these “strange things” make China keep on alerted and insist on “dynamic zero covid” strategy.
I’m a foreigner living in China for past 9 years. The Chinese govt is the best for decent people.
Yes, in China we know that C19 is a US biological attack. Even the Russians and Iranians said the same.
Most of China were largely free of C19 by June 2020. Including my Anyang city.
Vaccination is NOT mandatory.
In cities where there are no outbreaks people DON’T wear masks outside. Period.
It’s only in cities with cases then people wear masks as a precaution.
There were 2 C19 deaths in 2020 from Delta outbreak in Guangzhou.
Then in 2022 there were 2 deaths from peop5 with serious health issues. Then the shit storm happened in Shanghai which actually tried to do the western way and discarded the Zero COVID policy protocols, as a result caused widespread community infections, and killing off hundreds of old people. Yes! Daily death toll was in the area of 50 a day mainly from old people and those with health issues.
Shanghai has the lowest vaccination rate amongst the elderly in China. This Shanghai outbreak caused the infection of EVERY province in China with the exception of Tibet. This is the biggest outbreak of C19 since Wuhan January 2020.
Chinese cities learned not to be like Shanghai so all are testing and isolating infected cases, and those who came from infected cities must report to community and practice home isolation, with health workers providing their daily supplies.
Once those new outbreak is contained we expect to go back to maskless in our daily life.
Corporate mass media is the ubiquitous drug that has most everyone addicted and elicits consensual paranoia.
My only comment is get out of the country if you feel that much hate! Americans and Nato lands are the most obnoxious tourists and x-pats in the world. They think their opinion is gold
Japan has been marked for cancelation since the Fukushima incident 3-11-11.. February 2010, Japan offered to enrich uranium for Iran. Soon thereafter, an Israeli firm by the name of Magna BSP secured a contract to run security at the Fukushima Daiichi plant…
Surgeons wear masks for containment, not so much for filtration…
1897, French surgeon Paul Berger became one of the first surgeons to ever wear a face mask during an operation. Berger was familiar with the work of German bacteriologist Carl Flügge, who discovered that saliva could contain disease-causing bacteria.
A surgeon will wear one mask throughout the surgery. That could be 12 hours or more for a complicated surgery.
Twenty six months’ in, and 1,024,752 100% dead here in the USA as of this morning, here in Texas, 88,478, second highest in the country…and still counting…
I saw Japanese entering a plane with masks against the fumes. That was years before Covid.
Perhaps they just like cleanness. They wash their rice eight times before cooking and they go and have their ears cleaned at a barber’s shop. I think there is nothing wrong about that. It is just their way.
Very funny comments though going well with this funny piece of writing.
Who cares about what is happening in Japan or the rest of Asia relative to the “pandemic”?
I want information about what is occurring in Russia regarding this “scourge”.
You’ve come to the right website, but you punched the wrong button! Go back to the menu.
thank you mod. I settled in to read typical Vineyard of the Saker incisive analysis and saw a polemic against taking a pandemic seriously. many of us, myself included have lost friends and loved ones to it.
Russia 9th May Parade…no mask. There, i seems the plague has gone away quickly since Feb. 24th. Coincidence?
Amarynth, thank you, but it is impossible to completely separate both kinds of comments. Indeed, this piece of Pattberg is predicated on his subjective opinion Covid not (medically, how else?) being such a scare it was propagandized to be.
But I hope I have not overstepped already. Covid-19 pandemic situation was exploited worldwide for pretty dark ends. As some kind of dry-run for developing and implementing techniques of mass opinion formation (as per Mattias Despet) and also for installing in people fear and obedience in relation to ruling classes. When fear and obedience are installed like that, desired behavior can be activated on a whim. Now we have been conditioned (where I live) to show personal medical data if we want to enter bar or a supermarket. Curfew became known experience, not something from movies. When next time some new crisis arises or is even artificially construed, elites wil say “jump” and we are going to ask how high?
We can be sure that those who rule the world have learned a lot about human mass pyschology in last two years. And they will use this knowledge. If not before, when social crisis comes in connection with so called Green Transition and in connection with geopolitical separation of Zone A from Zone B.
Why did you bother to write this piece. Japan is an insular society. Everyone knows that.
Some 16-17 years ago, I spent several months in Tokyo – Ashikaga. Remember even back then so many people wore face masks due to what they said was air pollution, which frankly wasn’t that bad at all. So I think this idea of wearing face mask may have been an Asian contribution, at first, a clever business idea by the mask manufacturers, but then becoming the perfect tool in the hands of the WEF chiefs for muzzling people worldwide as they siphon the global wealth through ponzi schemes.
So no comments on medical aspects of Covid. Only sociological aspects.
I am on my balcony, overlooking the beach in Puerto Rico. I am amused that the locals “never” get more than chest deep in the water, nobody swims. My wife, at the moment, is dog paddling about 150 meters from shore.
Oh yes. Sociological comments. On the street, 80% of people still mask up. On the beach, maybe10% mask up, and it is still a daily occurrence to see a tourist wearing a blue paper mask in the water.
I try at least once or twice a day to tell some masked stranger “I really like your pretty smile.” Can’t get any more political than that.
I cannot understand sure what this unbelievably long-winded article – it could have made its point in a couple of paragraphs – is doing on the Saker site. I look for information on the Russian world here, and elsewhere for information on the “pandemic”. Maybe something on Russia’s covid response might be of interest (although even that’s doubtful judging by restrictions Mods are putting on comments here). But Japan??
Im at a loss what to make out of this endless write up!!!
Ok we get it that people in far east have different values and culture compared to Europe.
What exactly does the writer want to achieve with his stand and write up?
What next , an article on Hijab in Iran or Saudi Arabia? Excessive use of spices in India and South Asia?
Even if one wanted to make this observation ( not the protest , I know better than natives ) 500 words would have been sufficient.
Yes, you’re correct – you are at a loss.
But Thorsten writes on more than one level. What he is talking about here, is a complete alienation of what was a coherent society – he is just using Covid to illustrate. This is the problem, everyone goes for the illustration tools, but there are very few that pick up the concepts behind there.
Where to now Japan? You were an interesting society. Can you be brought back to being a proud people?
It is a dirge, it is a sad cry that Thorsten does here for us.
And all people see is masks. But those are western people mostly who kneejerk and want to fight their political fight.
No thank-you, go do that somewhere else.
I am sorry, Amarynth, but the article is staggeringly repetitive – how many times does the author mention seeing people in masks – and I gave up less than half way through? If you are correct on the author’s point, your two line summary is a 100 times better than the article. The problem with mass formation psychosis is almost universal and Japan is just an extreme example. Most of us on this site are fortunately in the minority who are apparently immune, as otherwise we’d be cheering Ukraine like the obedient lackeys our governments want. As I am sure you know, there is in the West a maybe 80-90% cross-over between those masking up and (double and triple jabbing themselves), and those lauding Zelenski as the brave defender of democracy along with those admirable Waffen SS holdovers he’s sending to be slaughtered by those nasty sadistic Ruskies.
‘It is a dirge, it is a sad cry that Thorsten does here for us.’
Gee thanks. A dirge is most certainly what us followers of current events with a potential for war between nuclear armed powers needed here. Even so, the “sad cry” length does seem just a little bit much for one German author’s perceptions of Japanese societal “alienation” based on mask wearing observations.
Can we expect equal time for a Japanese response? Just asking. ;^)
Sure! Are you going to write it?
No, sorry. I lack the ethnic background and qualifications to speak for the Japanese, or to properly asses the underlying social significance of their mask wearing inclinations either, for that matter. I will say, however, based on my very limited understanding, that at least some Japanese mask wearing seems to precede the Covid issue entirely … which may just possibly call into question the validity of “using Covid to illustrate” their alleged societal alienation.
Yes, and the Japanese are perhaps the most polite people on the planet. That might have something to do with the mask wearing as well.
Well I am not the least interested in mask wearing or COVID 19. I
live in Canada and will continue to wear a mask when I go into any store. My little knowledge is in history and racism.
I am not a fan of Japan and I think that they are a thorn in the side of all other Asia countries by being a complete servant to the west.
China recently locked down Shanghai and I would not like to live under total lockdown, but one cannot argue with the results. America has well over 1 million dead by they’re very own stats, and have clearly abandoned trying to wipe it out. So has other western countries. It is a question of economics.
The question is, in regards to this article; why do you live anywhere in Asia? To make fun of a nation that you live in does not make any sense.
It is my opinion that Japanese and Germans are similar in many aspects and hatred to others. The fact that they were allies in WW2 and now puppets of USA says it all.
But money can be made if you move to USA and just change Japanese to Chinese.
A lawyer, an engineer and a corporate scientist were called in for a test.
The engineer went in first and was asked, “What is 2+2?”
The engineer thought awhile and finally answered, “4.”
Then the mathematician was called in and was asked the same question.
With little thought he replied, “4.0”
Then the corporate scientist was called in, and was asked the same question.
The corporate scientist answered even quicker than the mathematician, “What do you want it to be?”
All of that to say is that the majority of scientists (who were given platforms) on the scene seem to have
some connections to the neocon-Zionists power structures. In other words, it appears to be ideologically driven, with answers skewed in favor of the WEF agenda..
Japanese are used to wear face mask. It’s not just covid thingy. They wear them in flu season, they wear them in flowering season.
Ironically of the population that readily obey their government Japanese and Taiwan takes number 1, Chinese is more rebellious than both. South Korea is just USA mini me.
You should see this on the bright side. Like Finland and some Nordic countries, wearing face masks and social distancing 2m probably made the Japanese far more sociable than their usual average. I saw a Finnish joke a few months ago: “what, they’re telling us to keep 1.5m apart? but we’re usually 5m…”
“Deru kugi ha utareru” – “the nail that sticks out gets hammered down”.
I spent a good 20h a week for half a decade learning Japanese, because they have such an interesting and alien culture.
But their submissiveness really gets me – the land of the samurai was really the land of almost enslaved peasants, and whilst the cream remains the cream, somehow the general population’s near 1000 year almost-enslavement has created an attitude of condescendance to force.
Historically, how do you grow back cojones as a nation? Nationalism really, like Putin’s (actual) “national-socialism”, but the road is a dangerous one, with national easily transformed into international, like for the axis states in the mid 20th.
I have no hope for Japan for now – maybe they are going the way of those mouse heaven experiments, due to overpopulation.
Not just in Japan, dumb people are everywhere. The mask mandate ended last month in WA,USA and I regularly still see plenty of people wearing a mask while all alone walking, driving, bicycling, or jogging. Crazy!
Not only Japan, the hypnosis is really global. I can’t help wondering if psychotronic weapons have something to do with it. https://www.globalresearch.ca/psychotronic-and-electromagnetic-weapons-remote-control-of-the-human-nervous-system/5319111 What if your smartphone was beaming a frequency custom made for you?
To Robin, et al. We have been trained (conditioned)… It Is not psycotronic: it is stupiditronic. We have been taught to be believers, not knowers. That’s why Socratis say “know thyself”- he did not say “believe in yourself”. And we are not brave, like a little ant that face a 2 mts. man and bites him… Cheers!
Hi Pete, your case is a bulls eye, more important than people would think.
To believe is for children. I believe in what the bigger boys and girls are saying because they are older than me and must know.
To know is for adults. I know the basic colour of grass is green and 2+2=4, therefore I can and are allowed to 100% reject people who says the basic colour of grass is blue and 2+2=5.
Thats why we speaks about Western infantility. Infantility thinks it can just play around with reality.
I have a good one from Confucius:
“Above all it is essential to refer to things by their correct names. If things are not referred to by their correct names, then our language will not reflect reality.
If our language does not reflect reality, then our actions will not reflect reality, and will be exercises in futility.” (Confucius, 551-479 BC, Chinese Teacher)
Maybe both. Still, this is modern warfare, where all of the new weapons are being beta tested. These weapons are in the hands of many governments, and other actors.
Now this comment should not have seen the light of day.
Why not! Sometimes it’s good to stir the pot, bringing things up into the sunshine where they can be exposed, otherwise people will think your part of the problem rather than shining a light on it.
I have just rewritten that article for you.
It would appear that almost everyone in Japan is wearing a mask
You’ve also lost the plot! lol.
True…a long time ago lol
Here in (relatively sane) North Idaho, not more than one in a hundred can be seen wearing the face diaper. 21% oxygen is better than 18%. Yay oxygen!
Meanwhile @300 miles to the west of you, it’s the exact opposite in (relatively insane) Seattle, WA
Stop it; I’ve moved on from Covid
It would seem that so has the White House. The nearly $40 Billion, whoever is in Biden’s head is asking, for has now been decoupled with nothing going to Covid and all of it going to the American war on Ukrainian soil.
Covid, war, regime change, death squads or moderate rebels, its all the same.
A “Symphony of destruction” https://youtu.be/pkZbvV5Nzw0 .
“Comments that are not acceptable: any comments, even indirectly, on the medical aspects of SARS-COV-2/COVID19 including, but not limited to: origin, prevention, effects on health, treatments and putative “non-existence” (including the “its just like the flu” kind).”
except in the text wall above, i guess? i tried wading through this sea of verbal diarrhea – this fukushima of stupidity – to find a point but it seems to be the inane ramblings of a garden variety covidiot. let me sum it up for anyone who doesn’t have time to waste:
“DERPA THEY’S NOT HAVIN’ BABEES LOL WTF DERP MASKS R GAY DURRRRRRRR”
but then anything that starts with “elon musk said” and doesn’t follow it with “more dumb stuff cuz he’s a pampered south african apartheid parasite” should be ignored immediately.
If people were miraculously liberated from this tyranny overnight, how long would it take a nation with its spine broken like Japan is after 70 years of American occupation to recover? My guess is that more than two generations given the irreparable damage done to kids growing up with their face recognition and general social skills stunted, their IQ lowered and the fear psychosis imbibed from their parents.
Stick a fork in Japan.
Japan has been occupied by the US since WWII, just like Germany. They’re like the other zombie Euro nations who are also controlled by the Anglo-Zionists. Germany and Japan just have more boot on their neck than the rest , Italy too, but to a lesser extent. It’s Stockholm Syndrome at this point.
Soon the Japanese government will tell them to take off the masks, and they will. They are ant people, it will happen in one day.
Yes – I lived in the Tokyo area for a year and a half, early 1970’s. The good thing (besides the traditional arts and culture, which I LOVE) is that you can be a young female and walk alone in downtown Tokyo at 4 a.m. with no concerns for your safety.
Otherwise, even way back then, the society DROVE. ME. CRAZY. They don’t even need a term for “unquestioning comformity,” it seems built into the genetics. I can barely imagine what it’s like with the added layers of social media and covinsanity.
“Isolated” doesn’t even begin to describe what truly might be an ET experiment in mass-brainwashing. And I hear China’s even worse? Oy.
Could there be other reasons?
“I feel comfortable to continue because of Tokio’s airpollution”, “the mask regime avoid the face recognition”,
“I feel more protected from the outside world with mask”, Something similar?
There is some contradiction between the article and known news, example warnings on vaccines: https://rairfoundation.com/alert-japan-places-myocarditis-warning-on-vaccines-requires-informed-consent/
The fact that people still debate whether or not this virus exists is a strong indication that this was not the plague that it was made out to be.
What that last two years have taught me is that:
Most politicians do not govern with the interests of their country in mind. When you have politicians around the world repeating the same phrases, e.g. “new normal,” “build back better” from the very outset of this “crisis,” and stating early on that the only solution is mass vaccination you have to conclude that they are being told what to say and how to act in order to advance some global political agenda.
Science has been hijacked by politicians and turned into a religion. Politicians around the world state that they are following the science without presenting the scientific studies that they supposedly used to justify their actions. When someone questions the severe measures implemented by politicians inevitably he or she is told “don’t you believe in science.” You see science is no longer something to be examined and discussed; it’s something you just have to believe. It’s an act of faith.
Many people regard the government as a benevolent family member. When you suggest to these people that the government is not acting in their best interests they become angry; it’s akin to insulting their father or mother.
It is now undeniable the mainstream media is completely controlled. Its job is not to inform the public but to form public opinion through narratives and censorship. And because many people are incapable of thinking critically, the mainstream media has become a powerfull weapon of mass controll and social engineering.
What I think the future will bring:
In June of 2019 the United Nations and the World Economic Forum signed an agreement to accelerate the implementation of agenda 2030. Covid will be used as a pretext to implement a digital economy. Say goodbye to money. Everyone will have a digital identity. You won’t have to remember all those passwords. The problem is that if you don’t agree with the policies of your government or possibly not give up your bodily autonomy, you may be denied access to your bank account. We’ve already seen how bank accounts of Canadian citizens were frozen because they donated to the protesting truckers. That’s where we’re heading.
politicians dont have the luxury of waiting for science. Same with public health authorities. Their first and foremost task is to control the effects of an emergency. To do that they will use whatever reasoning that is available at that particular period of time. Public Authorities manage difficult situations where certainity is not available as a base for decision making.
Same in Italy
Plenty of covidiots wearing masks when they are perfectly alone and isolated.
MSM brainwashed everyone here, only 10% of the population stood the mass manipulation. 70% simply fall for it, 20% was forced and ultimately subjugated to obey. Once mask mandates are over, right today I saw a post on a shop “ok masks are no longer mandatory but if you wear them, we are happy”
The sociopolitical issues is what this whole thing was about from the beginning.
The entire response over the world has just so happened to coincide and support, indirectly and directly, the sociopolitical program of certain grossly powerful and wealthy international players who have a radically different view of the nature of humanity from that preached by the orthodox Christian church.
What strikes me about the article is the fact that people are living in that way in one place, and completely the opposite in another place, with no apparent significant difference, and the intellectuals and major institutions think it’s unscientific to think that’s important.
Of course the Japanese wear face mask, but do not misunderstand them. With the massive continuing release of nuclear waste into the environment from their destroyed nuclear reactors in Fukushima, they are engaged in a futile attempt to protect themselves from inhaling radioactive material.
Or it could be like that.
“Or it could be like that.”
It is like that in varying degrees but not limited to Japan or Fukushima..
Perhaps Mr. Robert A. Jacobs’ book Nuclear Bodies – The Global Hibakusha published by Yale University Press in 2022 ISBN 978-0-300-23033-8 may prove of interest?
A potential vector of transcendence.
They’ve totally forgotten Fukushima in Japan. I don’t recall the last time I heard it brought up outside of an NGO devoting itself to the nuclear power issue. I don’t even think in the aftermath of Fukushima the people here were wearing masks to protect against fallout.
They’ve been common for decades for hay fever and colds, said to benefit the wearer (keeping the throat moist and pollen effectively out). The current near-100% usage is due to people being terrified of being accused of causing someone else to get sick. When we moved to my husband’s home town a year and a half ago, my husband expressed relief because in the town were we had been living, the minute COVID started spreading there, brought in by relatives living in the cities, we as outsiders would be blamed, he said.
My wife is Japanese and I lived there 7 years. Read, write and speak the language pretty well. Your comment is spot on. The article‘s author is only half right. The Japanese have long used masks, especially in the winter and crowded trains, so it’s not much of a leap for them. Now, do they lack discernment and access to outside media? Emphatically, yes. Are they slavishly compliant in oder to keep the “wa”? Yes. Are they politically naïve, pathologically superficial and xenophobic? Yes. I’d be careful, however, thinking that they aren’t capable of stubborn, willful, and defiantly oppositional behavior. They just hide it well, show it only when drunk, or to those close to them.
Regarding Germans, I’m half, so I can speak to them too. The author is German and would be better directing his magnifying criticisms at his own country. The PCR test was refined to be a tool of enslavement in Germany, they insist on continuing to force mask on all in public transport and airplanes despite Brussels saying it’s no longer necessary. 75% of the people got the clot shot (were brainwashed), and then ruthlessly discriminated, agitated against, bullied, maligned, shunned, threatened, etc. the unvaxxed. It was ghastly: nazi techniques all over again. They have learned nothing in this country. The medical and legal establishment are completely captured and do as they are told. When a judge defied this lockstep mentality and ordered a school to lift the mask mandate for children, the cops showed up, ransacked his house and a suit was filed against him. These stasi “zersetzung” techniques cowered the few hold-outs and the whole country went into nazi mass psychosis formation. Insurance companies have leaked that the death rates among the vaccinated has skyrocketed and that injury reports have been ridiculously repressed. There has been an endless campaign to vax children as young as possible. Teachers have praised in front of all the ones who have complied, shaming the ones who didn’t.
I could go on and on. My point is that the Germans pride themselves in thinking they take to shit, apply intelligence to problems, are efficient, and scientific. That is a complete myth and a joke, as proven by the plandemic. Though of as mental giants compared to the Japanese, the Germans became far more slavishly brainwashed and dumber than any Japanese. They also fell right into their old nazi and stasi grooves regarding how dissent and opposition was dealt with. They have learned nothing from history. Nada, zilch. That is what the author should have focused on, instead of the half-baked uncovering of stuff we already knew about Japan.
You can’t wave the German flag in Germany?? I’ll wager that it is o.k. to wave
Uncle $hmuel’s rag.
The Japanese were wearing face masks when I lived there in the 1960s.
The Japanese were, and are, the healthiest, longest-lived people on earth.
Folks in Beijing and Shanghai have worn masks for as long as I can remember. They outlive Germans by 10 years.
Maybe there’s a connection?
“Maybe there’s a connection?”
There is; but not the one you have in mind.
What strikes me most about the entire rant?? (which I appreciated the rant)
The opening comment from mod outlining what was acceptable and unacceptable for responses.
I understand this blog can’t be all things for all people, but it sure missed what was pretty much the most important and devastating social conditioning operation in the history of the world.
Spanning all cultures and religions
You think Japan is messed up?
Wherever you are at, just outside your home, it is messed up there too. And for many, within your own homes and families.
No, we did not miss it. We decided to get ourselves outside of this battle. Gotto choose the battles y’know.
Personally after +- 500 hate emails, I decided to let you all hate yourselves without me.
thank you for all you did. God bless you!
You guys/girls of Saker+ are doing a fantastic job. Its a very high intellectual level you still are able to maintain.
We all (the non-hateful) enjoy and appreciate it as long as such a thing can last.
Historically, Chinese wear masks in cities due to bad air pollution. But that’s history since President Xi stepped in and enforced clean air policies. Today, most Chinese cities with bad air in the past are now pretty good. That includes my Anyang city.
I haven’t wore mask since April 2020, and only wore it in January 2022 due to an outbreak caused by returning students who got infected in Tianjin. That lasted 20 days and we we’re back to maskless.
Then the Shanghai shit caught our city in late April and we went back to masks while in public.
But inside our community/estate we can go maskless and nobody will make an issue of it.
So the writer of this article don’t know much about life in China.
No, the Chinese are not gluttons for punishment nor believe they were born with masks.
Note-nobody has died outside of Shanghai because the local govts got their acts together and not engaged in trying to bend over to western opinions, unlike the Shanghai govt. Expect a quiet purge of their top leadership once things quite down.
btw why isn’t this piece attributed to Pattberg by name? (Except in the tag, which is hardly attribution.)
This is no planet for the intelligent AND moral people.
For the last 2 years it was the pandemic, now it’s the war in Ukraine. If you challenge the official narrative (ie the propaganda constantly fed to the sheeple by the presstitutes), no matter the robustness or acuity of your doubts or observations, you are an enemy, an outsider, or a deranged person, period.
About 75% of my acquaintances believe and propagate the presstitutes propaganda and dismiss any departure from it. I lost some friends who would not be friends with someone challenging the whole pandemic propaganda and refusing the genetherapy, the lockdown, and the mask, and their argument was “they lost family because of the virus, so I was offending them with my non-acceptance of the official discourse”.
Well, right now, they have no relatives or friends in Ukraine nor Russia, yet their behaviour is exactly the same. Someone unable to fathom that Russia is a war criminal or some similar stupid bullshit is deemed persona non grata.
The fashion here in Spain is to call you a fascist whenever you challenge any, literally any, aspect of the western propaganda (covid, bad russia, poor zone B full of illeterates which need to discover western democracy and come to Europe in spades). Not really to show my disdain for those sheeples, and back when I cared for those who had been my friends until they were genetherapied, I told them they looked actual totalitarians to me, despite them calling me a fascist, they were freely enforcing totalitarian measures on everyone, competing to be the worst kind of collabos one can think of… advocating locking unvax people for the greater good of the rest.
Interestingly enough, some among these ex friends have travelled to more than 30 countries, most of them in Zone B!
I have been to very little zone B countries in my life, yet I don’t have TV at home nor I have ever read a single western presstitute thing for more than 10 years, whereas these people are addicted to all their netflix and daily tv news and spend a lot of time in front of it…
What Dr. Pattberg says here is entirely true. I am astounded that the doctor signed away his rights to redress for him, but it is entirely typical. He probably hissed through his teeth before taking responsible action to deal with the stubborn foreigner.
The face mask is a yashmak, and the wearers true followers of Japan’s actual national religion, which is Japanese-ness. Groups of Japanese overseas are famous for all ordering the same dish at a restaurant. The idea is to avoid causing the staff confusion. If you were brought up here, even as a foreigner, you adopt this world view, and if you weren’t, you’ll never really get it, no matter how you try.
There would have been little resistance to masking here anyway. Face masks have been ubiquitous for decades for colds and hay fever. Also, if you notice how the Japanese talk, they hardly move their lips. Lower facial muscles atrophy in many people. They can barely form a smile. I think it may stem from centuries of attempted privacy under very crowded conditions, but another attribute is they do not like emotional displays.
Nonetheless, I feel very very concerned about the younger people in Japan. They were having trouble even before COVID-19 came along. Economy? Future? What economy…what future? About five years ago I asked a group of junior high school students what their future dream was. The boys all answered “win the lottery,” and the girls, “marry someone.” And it has only gotten worse. I had two students this year (junior high and grade school level) who could not read. The younger one gave up. With the older one I’m focusing on entirely oral tasks now. And I heard about a high school boy in the same town also completely unable to read. In 38 years here, this is my first time ever to encounter dyslexia. We used to have a good time singing in my classes. Now the children just sit there and listen to me sing all alone. The girl students, who have all quit as of April, conceal their smartphones in their laps and punch away at them. That’s is where I personally put the blame for what is happening, and of course, COVID is simply intensifying that trend.
As the author noted, there has been a growing hesitancy to have children. I disagree about the government or elites discouraging childbearing. On the contrary, they’ve been cajoling and bribing and wringing their hands helplessly over their superannuated society. The real problem is that since 1990, there has never been an economic recovery and very few younger people can even afford to marry, much less have kids. Now, with COVID, young people cannot even get together, and there are so few children being born that a friend running a kindergarten is going to close it down in two years, because there are no young children in town. Zilch.
The Davos crowd did not have to cajole or threaten or bribe Japan to fall in line. All they have to do is tell them they have a duty to others to do whatever it is, and they fall in line with little or no resistance.
I’m going to wade into the swamp of responses to this piece by Thorsten J. Pattberg for only one reason.
Which is this.
Following the WHO declaring the global spread of SARS-CoV-2 a pandemic in 2020 the identical response to COVID-19 by nearly all countries, especially the G20, was coincidentally coordinated throughout most of the world at the same time and had one main purpose.
To create compliance. Not compliance to save lives, which was the media driven narrative, but to see how far controls could be implemented and enforced without dissent.
Why? The debt-based monetary system is running on empty. When, not if the global bond market freezes, central banks can do nothing.
The events being witnessed now worldwide are the harbingers of the forthcoming financial crisis which will make that of 2008 – 2009 look insignificant.
Need more evidence of symptoms of a decaying West?
The pressure on Russia and China to capitulate by any means is because the US knows their USD reserve currency is being side-lined, and Russia and China have known for decades the day would come when they would need to stand on their own as the 51 year old dying world reserve currency collapses, taking all fiat currencies with it.
Time will tell if my theory proves correct.
Since the financial collapse of 2008, populations in Western countries have lost faith in their institutions. The governing elites have lost the capacity and the will to engage the population and foster an equitable social contract. Fear is always the tool of choice: from the terrorism scare, the Russian threat, to COVID, with more variants, as a formula for silencing protest, manufacturing consent, maintaining control, and increasing power.
Who needs to bring out the military, or declare martial law for mass rioting and social disintegration when the time-tested political tool of fear will do instead.
That is, until the “nine meals from anarchy” rule kicks in. Then what?
Throughout all Western media note how the shrill voices of propaganda push the “Russia bad” fear narrative. This has almost replaced two years of COVID-19 histrionics and the media’s top story since early 2020.
State sponsored propaganda is always the tool of choice used to attribute blame, occupy the minds, and control the citizenry’s behaviour, but never more so than now, during the collapse of the Empire of Lies.
I agree with you completely.
See what a good boy I am? While sitting alone in my living room reading this excellent article, I was wearing my mask 😷 NOT!
Here in South Bay SoCal, so many Asians still wearing a mask. I just don’t get how people can be so easily brainwashed.
I live in Tokyo and I couldn’t aggree more on the fact that the robotic compliance to often absurd rules
can drive you insane. I must stress though that I never heard of anyone getting fired or pressured into
resigning for not being vaccinated. Never. Same goes for going around maskless: I have never been kicked out
of shops or trains, neither have I been attacked or intimidated.
Of course, some people run away in fear when they see you maskless, some use their umbrellas as a shield
for further virus protection (not kidding), some will keep their hands on their masked mouth, some others will
whisper ‘wear a mask’ or ‘die!’. That’s it.
Of course, social pressure must be very intense if you are Japanese. Anyway I work and live in 99% Japanese
environment and face no coercion on most occasions.
No coercion, that’s not necessary because most Japanese people will people coerce themselves into
anything that’s dictated from above.
As foreigners, we have a lot more leeway than the Japanese, who face constant pressure for conformity. What I’ve observed here for the past 10 months is friends and family putting pressure on their members to get vaccinated. In addition, Japan has a “cancel culture” the US Democratic Party can only gape at in envy. It appears to me the higher you go on the social ladder, the more you have to conform to social expectations, and any deviance gets you canceled, never to be allowed back. Because the author is employed at Japan’s most prestigious university, this might apply to him as well.
I would be curious, though, if he saw colleagues who questioned the narrative get shunned or heard talk going around about it.
I loved this country’s culture. Read a lot of books on it and a lot read about Bushido and loved that part. But now this all seems to me like some American States approach to soft power. Just like some magic to make us believe they are cool and all, but they aren’t. And from what I see, they are a defeated people as a whole, even if they might have some true champions still alive here and there.
It’s not really of their own free will.
Free will doesn’t exist in Japan.
One must never do anything that marks them as an individual.
Submission and conformity are obligatory.
The nail that stands out must be hammered down.
