Monkeypox (Under the Fig Tree Part15)

A hermit observing the world from his cave

Here we are again, this time not with a COVID variant but with another disease. The

authorities, always looking for ways to lord it over people through totalitarian mandates, are

once again stirring up fear and hysteria. This time it is monkeypox.

Belgium has become the first country to impose a mandatory 21-day monkeypox quarantine

for those who contract the virus. And just yesterday, President Biden of the USA said the recent spread of monkeypox is “something that everybody should be concerned about.” UK health officials have warned that the UK faces a significant rise in infections. There are now 13 other Western countries that have confirmed outbreaks of the viral disease.

But how serious is monkeypox? Well, it is rare, and symptoms are usually mild, with most

patients recovering within a few weeks with no treatment. Ordinary people really have not

much to be afraid of with monkeypox. First, it is not new. It was first discovered as a virus in

monkeys in 1958, and the first human case was identified in the Democratic Republic of Congo (Africa) in 1970. So it is known and treatable. It is highly unlikely to cause another pandemic.

More importantly, and authorities and media do not mention this, monkeypox is prevalent

among homosexual men. Not women. Not children. Not straight men. But men having sex with other men. And transmission occurs when there is close physical contact. It is unlike COVID which is in the air and is transmitted without physical contact. The three cases in Belgium were all linked to a festival for gay men that took place in Antwerp.

So do you want to avoid monkeypox? Then do not commit sodomy.

And you tyrannical Western governments, stop with the hysteria. With COVID now an

endemic, you have been looking for variants or other reasons with which to shut down the

world again. A pox be upon you.
