Artist Gary Matthews, died, January 13, 2021.
TAP.It is not clear what his illness was, his friend mentioning asthma. His own family were obviously estranged from him. If he thought COVID didn’t exist, why would he have a test for it? His business and livelihood would be badly affected by the lockdowns. There’s more to this story I suspect, but the Shropshire Star wants to spin it as a COVID fear generator – as per usual. Gary was talented and intelligent and no doubt hurt badly by the rejection of his family in his beliefs that COVID is a fake. His own family cut him off for trying to help them to realise where the real threats lie, but they preferred the mush on their TV sets and local newspaper to the knowledge of their own brilliant child/sibling. Of course the creepy BBC ran with the same line as The Shropshire Star. The COVID fear narrative needs a boost, as more and more realise it’s a scam. I wonder if he had that test at all. If he did, did it sign a warrant? I am sure that newsworthy deaths are much sought after by certain people.
2020 saw 14% more deaths than average, last year in England & Wales and that amounted to seventy-five thousand extra deaths. We here use the Office of National statistics figures, as it gives total weekly deaths, plus also for comparison an average value of corresponding weekly deaths over the previous five years.
That compares with the figure of ninety thousand deaths for the entire United Kingdom, due allegedly to covid-19.
We here ask and answer the question, what caused that excess of deaths? The answer will not be certain, but will be the simplest possible explanation. By Occam’s razor we are obliged to take it.

Part 1. THE FALSE THEORY/ CHAPTER 1. WHAT IS EUGENICS?
The wisest thing in the world is to cry out before you are hurt. It is no good to cry out after you are hurt; especially after you are mortally hurt. People talk about the impatience of the populace; but sound historians know that most tyrannies have been possible because men moved too late. It is often essential to resist a tyranny before it exists. It is no answer to say, with a distant optimism, that the scheme is only in the air. A blow from a hatchet can only be parried while it is in the air.
CHAPTER 1.—Introduction in Defence of Everything Else
The only possible excuse for this book is that it is an answer to a challenge. Even a bad shot is dignified when he accepts a duel. When some time ago I published a series of hasty but sincere papers, under the name of "Heretics," several critics for whose intellect I have a warm respect (I may mention specially Mr. G.S. Street) said that it was all very well for me to tell everybody to affirm his cosmic theory, but that I had carefully avoided supporting my precepts with example. "I will begin to worry about my philosophy," said Mr. Street, "when Mr. Chesterton has given us his." It was perhaps an incautious suggestion to make to a person only too ready to write books upon the feeblest provocation. But after all, though Mr. Street has inspired and created this book, he need not read it. If he does read it, he will find that in its pages I have attempted in a vague and personal way, in a set of mental pictures rather than in a series of deductions, to state the philosophy in which I have come to believe. I will not call it my philosophy; for I did not make it. God and humanity made it; and it made me.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end…To be ‘cured’ against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.
Chesterton begins [this chapter] by challenging the common notion that a man will succeed if he believes in himself. Chesterton argues the opposite—a man who believes in himself will almost certainly fail, for men are not to be trusted. “Complete self-confidence,” writes Chesterton, “is not merely a sin; complete self-confidence is a weakness”. In the remainder of the chapter, Chesterton will build off this idea to develop a picture of insanity. What makes a man a maniac? Not, as some may suggest, a lack of reason. For Chesterton, insanity arises in “the man who has lost everything except his reason”. He is by no means saying that logic is unimportant, only that logic does have that potential danger. He demonstrates his point with the example of the materialist. The materialist believes he is freeing man from the restrictions of religion. His logical, reasonable mind, or so he believes, leads him to the view of materialism and determinism. But Chesterton shows that materialism is far more restrictive than spiritualism. As an example, he points out that Christians are free to see order in the universe (a great deal of it in fact), but the materialist cannot allow even the slightest possibility of the supernatural and miraculous. From here, Chesterton draws parallels between the madman and the materialist, and concludes that both hold a position that is “unanswerable and intolerable”. The answer, Chesterton argues, is mysticism. The reason the mystic remains sane is that he has “always had one foot in earth and the other in fairyland”. Simply summarized, the mystic retains his imagination, and thereby retains his sanity.
