Covid is not an epidemiological story. Covid is a crime story. If you view this whole 'pandemic' situation through the lens of health, safety, science and saving lives, then most of it makes little sense. If you view it through the lens of money, power, control, and wealth transfer, then all of it makes perfect sense.
Katherine, thank you for this post.
I have read Ann for years, she really is quite amazing.
Thank for this timely post. Simply, thank you.
Beautiful, and much-needed "reality check" through an authentic Christian lens. Thank you.
Yes, there is merit to the idea that we have deserved all that we are getting now because we never demanded real justice for all these crimes and grave sins.
The Kennedys themselves just prolly wanted the "Jo Kopechne problem" to go away and so were quiet about that crime and sin, perhaps wanting it not to spoil their chances in the political world. But what they do or don't in this temporal world will have its reckoning in the next.
We are at a stage in this country where people can break the law, yet they have not done anything wrong or harmed anyone in any way (i.e. firearm law violations), while others can cause great harm and death to countless thousands or millions, and even violate laws that are on the books while doing so, yet they are free from concern of any consequences or repercussions from government.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. - Isaiah 5:20-24
Really an eye-opening essay. Thank you.
Regarding the "equality of justice" -- is there more on that principle? The place I want to go with that is fixing our several century long problem with corporations. Corporations even claim personhood for protections but hide behind corporate-ness for their crimes. Corporations and those who run them generally escape paying for their actions. This I find repugnant and yet what can be done when the system of laws has been manipulated to escape justice?
Corporations can cause destabilization of nations' economies and cultures (example, United Fruit in Central America), corporations can make possible illicit drug sales (example the corporate banks that launder drug money and make the deadly business possible), corporations can fund and profit off death camps (example, the corporations that ran the combined slave labor factories and slave barracks and extermination facilities), corporations can instigate deadly wars for resources and profits (example, is Gulf War 2 when Dick Cheney's amalgam of petroleum industry corporations drew up spoils-of-war-plans ahead of time), corporations can pollute resources and poison citizens for profit (example one, the chemical corporations which dispose of their toxic waste by-product fluoride in drinking water through public dental health deception; example two, petrochemical corporations who dumped hundreds of thousands of gallons of toxic wastes into the Gulf of Mexico claiming it was a real fix for the Deepwater Horizon oil spewage), pharma corporations who have manipulated regulatory agencies to the point that testing need no longer take place and liabilities for injuries no longer apply (example, the millions of essentially untested mRNA injectables that have caused injuries and deaths, both counted and uncounted) and so on and on. Enlarge the list of examples and the crimes and death toll keep mounting.
As much as I abhor justice being denied in single cases of negligence or death such as Ted Kennedy, if I were to create a priority list for seeking justice, it would be the mass murderers like profiteering corporations and their minions in government I would pursue first. They have fashioned specifically for themselves unique privileges to plunder, profit, maim and murder, and they must be stopped. All the reasoning clarified in your essay applies as well to these criminals hiding behind corporate protections!

Thank you again Katherine for putting a voice to the stomach turning events we all are facing. We know the wrongs being committed and are crying out to comment to others anyway we can to stop, bring to justice, or at least notice what is happening, but to a silent world they end.
We see the results of this in Canada, too. Nit only the shenannigans of our PM, but in the recent apparent murders by an apparent offender, who had ACTUALLY offended and reoffended....and was not kept in prison. And knives were the recent weapons if choice. So much for gun control...
Take a look.
What can we the people do to stop and correct what is going on. I have no knowledge of the legal system, so is there anything the citizens of the world can collectively do to remove and bring to justice the wrongs and guilty?
Just as an aside... I know you're just sharing a quote here but I've read that Ted Kennedy was set up (drugged himself) and didn't kill Mary Jo Kopechne (the CIA killed her and the body did not die of drowning, she was dead already). The did it all while he was knocked out cold. They framed Teddy so he wouldn't run for President as they could not be sure to get his cooperation ( an old trick using someone as a patsy) . Here's one link: https://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/archive.cgi?noframes;read=10111
There are probably a dozen "what really happened" stories and we'll never know if he was framed or not. He may not have been the "bad guy" as characterized... I do believe the official story is bunk.
Apart from that, yes, I fully agree that for all who are genuinely guilty--we need to demand no less than justice.
This is a brilliant piece. Thank you. I’ve been going back and between your work and Katherine Witts work. The rabbit holes you two dig are vast.
One other thing where can I find out more about your art work. It’s beautiful. Thank you
Ted Kennedy committed so many mortal sins, objectively, and instead of being excommunicated he got Resume Mass by Vatican II Cardinal. Another fake Catholic who supported baby murder for decades. Our Lady of Fatima said souls are falling into hell like snowflakes...1917, before Russia spread its errors. 2022, and sads whereby many don't have long life to find Catholic Church...
