Lol, boosters now down to 4 months in NZ.

As predicted. Don't doubt me.
"Red" lockdowns confirmed when Omicron cases are in the community. Coming soon.
Which one should I drink first?
I drank a blend of mistletoe, birch, nettle, St John's wort, and ginkgo before bed last night and I'm still half-asleep now
Happy New Year everyone! I've just enabled the latest features on the channel and chat.
I can't really say that 2021 was a bad year for me personally. A challenging one for sure, and a lot of changes in the list of people I respect and some unexpected (positive) development in my social, political, and religious philosophy. I've had a bit of time working on some personal projects, hopefully more news on that front this year. I did very little writing of articles and essays in 2021, but am not sure if that will change in 2022.

I've been meditating a lot on Psalm 2 recently and in there have found my New Year's resolution.

"Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, 'Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.' He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure." (v1-5)

Resolution: less worrying and being angry, more laughing with God.

The past few days have been great, I am at an undisclosed location in the provinces, having made a spontaneous decision to flee plague city on Thursday morning. People have been good to us and rather than having a lonely new year, we were able to celebrate surrounded by like-minded friends and strangers alike.
We spent around 10 days away from Auckland with some normal people in the provinces. Don't think I missed much, should unplug more often.
Reading "The Storm of Steel" by Erst Jünger and what strikes me the most is the theme of man gobbled up by the machine. The triumph of Science and the downfall of Man.

About ⅔ through so might do a proper review after.
Without the team of $55m this is the type of thing that could bring down governments. Add yesterday's scandal of Dutch MP Marja Lubeck going on holiday and getting a "lucky" MIQ spot, and you have a picture of a very complacent govt.

I'll be live with Tim tomorrow night at 8pm on Trad Tasman Talk. Back for just one episode this month and then the regular in February.

I did catch a bit of a cold from somewhere, but should be able to handle an hour of banter.
Been drinking "green rooibos" tea today, definitely a new favourite.
Also on Odysee at the usual link (odysee.com/ttt-live)
We'll be talking about all the Gaylord stuff, foreign MPs causing trouble again, the evils of republicanism, social cohesion, droughts, sharks, paganism, etc.
Going live now
I saw a real "it's current year how is x still happening" ad when biking past an empty bus stop this morning.
This week's podcast is a bit late, I had a bunch of New Conservative board meetings and strategy meetings all mushed together this week - more on that another time. The YT version of RMP#10 is just rendering out right now.

Possibly the most controversial episode yet.
Right Minds Podcast #10 - in the context of the NZ Coast Guard advising people pray to demons to avoid drowning in the ocean, we discuss the superiority that Matauranga has over The Science, and also the ultimate supremacy of Christianity over both. Enjoy.
