    The Cost Of Virtue Signaling Is Getting High — And Leading Directly To A Social Credi

    The Cost Of Virtue Signaling Is Getting High — And Leading Directly To A Social Credit System.....


    The cost of virtue signaling over the past five years has grown exponentially, from the painless task of planting anti-Trump signs in your yard all the way to turning your family members over to authorities, masking little kids playing outdoors, subjecting the young to racist re-education, and even injecting teenagers with a novel vaccine of which the long-term effects are completely unknown.


    While the pressure to conform is older even than mankind, and often comes with good reason, its most recent and illiberal iterations harken back to dark times in our history and in world history. The cost of signaling virtue is once again getting higher and higher — and more and more targeted at you and me. Worse yet, ominous signs point toward to digitalization and eventual enforcement of this new value system.

    The goals of the main drivers of this new morality have been in open sight from the start; many (but not all) of us simply weren’t looking hard enough. “Find the racist!” they yelled, and a lot of right-thinking people agreed. “Find the insurrectionist!” they screamed and a few more eyebrows went up, but the logic behind arresting rioters seems sound enough on its face. After all, you’re not a violent insurrectionist, are you?


    But just like how those yard signs proclaiming “all welcome” really meant “conservatives not welcome,” the hunt for racists and insurrectionists isn’t just a hunt for those who are explicitly named on the wanted posters. We’re going well beyond that. And all of us are expected to take part in this hunt or we are on the wrong side of history (a very bad place to be indeed).



    Subject your child to indoctrination. Make them hate themselves for their skin color. Force them to denounce their parents, their grandparents, the people who gave them this happy life, and the country that let it happen. This is the new price of entry. The cost of signaling virtue is getting higher, more intrusive, more demanding, and whether we like it or not, we are all enrolled in the new social credit system.


    “Black out your square” on Instagram? That was last year. “Get your injection” on Instagram? That’s the new thing.



    People don’t feel comfortable being around those who aren’t vaccinated, so you’re going to have to show a pass. Makes sense, right? A lot of people these days also don’t feel comfortable being around Trump supporters, either, or people who haven’t “checked their privilege,” or who go to the wrong church, or are the “wrong” skin color. See where this is going?


    We’re not there yet, but nothing in the new social credit virtue signal system gives any sign of slowing down. Why would they? They’re winning, and conservatives are barely lifting a hand to stop them......snip~

    Those at the Federalist see it for what it is. Those on the Right need to Prep up and step up!

    Too bad George Orwell did not imagine a Social Credit system.

    He could have written another major novel of a horrific totalitarian future on that alone!
