Well done - a compelling and "entertaining" allegory to encode the truth and evade the thought bots in the public domain - although I can already anticipate the mindless babble in response, from the hoppers, hatters and drinkers ;o Empty vessels.

I was trying to imagine whether the FB "community standards" police would fact check this and plaster a covid warning on top of it.

Just something to ponder - since I have no first hand experience (I really only proceed in life in this way) with vaccine side effects, just videos posted on the internet and anecdotal information, I'm considering that their could be large percentage of placebo involved (think of the exponentially more gazillions these reptiles would bank if they were shooting people with sugar water). And it's undeniable that they would capitalize endlessly on the FEAR of the vaccine itself to spread more chaos and FEAR and DIVISION - even producing control the opposition anti vax propaganda themselves as is their wont - through their endless cartoon programming and mind control. Not that maiming and genociding people isn't one of their historically proven agendas. Just sayin'.

The witchcraft part of course is particularly apt, as we see our friends and family stumbling around, clearly under the influence of a foul spell. But of course, that's entirely their choice, so...

Thank you for your astute observations, blessdog, and I was hoping this would introduce an encoded lexicon we could begin using to bypass the Thought Police. But you’re right, I wouldn’t put it past the “fact-checkers” to label this “misinformation” and unperson anyone who calls people hatters, hoppers, and drinkers ;-)

All excellent points regarding the conflagration of fear, division, and chaos being used to corral us into our designated pens, and no doubt controlled oppositionists are playing a role in discrediting and distracting from the truthtellers.

It is heartbreaking to see so many succumb to the foul spell and discouraging to feel no amount of deprogramming can shake them from their hypnosis, but I keep trying, nonetheless.

The comments seem to indicate that this might not be from the 1930's; it could be modern cartoon done in the style of. Difficult to trace the sources. Spot on, though!

I read it again a few days ago. My opinion hasn’t changed. In fact, I think it becomes more relevant as time goes on and more of the truth comes out. More people would understand it now than when you wrote it and they might not see you as a conspiracy kook. I’m waiting patiently for the sequel.

What a coincidence that you just reread it (right after its two-year anniversary, no less), and I appreciate knowing it has aged well! I’m glad JC happened to comment on this today, or I may have never seen your original comment.

The IVM story is something shameful. I have to assume when people wake up from their trance to learn the full story, it will be a real shock. Did you see the 3 part article from RESCUE by Michael Capuzzo?

I agree with your sentiment and think exposing the IVM smear campaign may be an effective way to reach the otherwise-reasonable people who have been duped by the media given the overwhelming scientific evidence demonstrating the ludicrosity of the smears.

Thank you for the links—I was unaware of those and may end up including them in the article I mentioned!

Excellent question, Bandit, and no offense taken!

I think it is of vital importance to expose the ivermectin disinformation campaign for several reasons:

1) the more we raise awareness about it, the more lives we may save;

2) the more attention this grand deceit gets, the greater our possibility of making it available to more people, as is already occurring in legal cases such as this (https://rescue.substack.com/p/hero-judge-holds-hospital-in-contempt) and this (https://rescue.substack.com/p/a-judge-stands-up-to-a-hospital-step);

3) I believe the IVM disinformation campaign has been the most blatant, egregious, and easily debunked narrative, and exposing this Big Lie is a gateway to realizing the breadth and depth of the deception that has been wreaked upon humanity, as I explain in more detail in “Letter to a Scientifically-Minded Friend” (https://margaretannaalice.substack.com/p/letter-to-a-scientifically-minded); and

4) the transcript of Dr. Tess Lawrie’s Zoom meeting with Dr. Andrew Hill I share in her “Profiles in Courage” entry (https://margaretannaalice.substack.com/p/profiles-in-courage-dr-tess-lawrie/) is perhaps the clearest evidence of intentional mass homicide by denial of life-saving medication as enabled by colluding Shill Hill in service to his BigPharma sponsor/Gates Foundation puppet Unitaid.

I don't disagree with any of what you're saying and I pray that all your and others work wins out. I just feel overwhelmed. I appreciate you talking me down off the ledge.

You are actually the only publisher that I follow that makes me feel hopeful about this whole situation. While the others provide good information, you and your commenters feel more like a family, the others feel more like an angry mob. Both have their uses.

I do have Aussie friends who have ordered from India, successfully. That was mid 2021, however, and I have a feeling Aussie Customs is checking more thoroughly. Cheap enough to try, though.

I think Citizen Free Press linked to the reprint in off-guardian - how did you get your piece in the latter? This is the sort of writing that what we need more of (e.g. writing along the lines of Ayn Rand, George Orwell etc) from the right, populists, the center, and libertarians to counter the totalitarian elite's narrative and convince people or change minds - not more boring intellectual non-fiction that most people don't want to read! I am serializing my own satire on here as I have no other options at the moment (no conservative/libertarian etc version of Amazon) and no social media following, see: https://covidsteria.substack.com/p/covidsteria-table-of-contents

Thanks for your comment both here and at OG! I have Mensch59 for sharing my work at Censor-Free Zone, bless him.

As for OG, I simply submitted my article per their submission guidelines. They have published three out of the four articles I’ve submitted thus far, but do know it can take weeks to get a response, if any, as they get thousands of emails and have a very small team of editors, most of whom are busy performing their own stellar investigative journalism.

Best wishes with your undertaking—we need all the satirical foot soldiers we can get in this war to end all wars!

I am surprised blogspot is tolerating you and Don Surber! (I hope Substack does not sell out to big tech - supposedly they refused Twitter as a suitor). Check out Surber's daily "Highlights of the News" https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2021/08/highlights-of-news_0933570327.html

CJ, shhh, hopefully Blogspot won’t catch on ;-) I don’t know how much they monitor individual blogs, though, so hopefully, Censor-Free Zone will survive. Thanks for the Don Surber rec; I’m not familiar with his work. As for Substack, Glenn Greenwald has spoken of his conversations with the Substack founders about their commitment to freedom of speech and anti-censorship stance, so as long as they retain ownership, I feel relatively confident this platform will remain a safe haven for truth and free speech. That is certainly admirable and encouraging to hear they turned down Twitter—that kind of integrity is rare these days!

A copy of The Vapor, the Hot Hat and the Witches' Potion arrived in time for Christmas 2023. I was impressed by the quality of the booklet, its illustrations and its writing. However, I found the ending rather downbeat, especially for a book aimed at children. Any plans to update the book?

Delighted to hear that, Sean! As for the ending, this is a dystopian fairy tale in the tradition of books like “Animal Farm,” so it serves as a cautionary story of what could happen if we don’t stop it.

I actually wrote it for adults originally but was happy to learn from numerous parents that their children immediately “got” it and loved it. One person even ordered a box of copies for her homeschool group. Others have said it helped teach their kids critical thinking and skepticism of authority.

As for the upbeat ending, it is up to us to bring that to fruition in reality :-)

Unfortunately when I showed the book to a local preschool teacher, she said she'd probably be fired for reading this to her kids. So the oppression continues...

Sadly true. Thankfully in one of our local school districts there's been a major pushback against the SOJI propaganda from parents and they were successful in shutting down a drag queen storytime at the public library. Which the local media of course wept crocodile tears over.

It’s time to write the follow up to this fairy tale in which some of the anti-drinkers, anti-hatters, and anti-hoppers joined with the normies and wrote articles, and held festivals, and sang songs, and planted seeds, and created parallel communities, and raised their children to believe that they no longer needed potions made by witches because their relationship with nature and vapors had changed.

This was a lovely read, thank you, Margaret.

EXCELLENT SHORT-STORY!

Now for some comments from me, the be all and end all of commenters, don't you know. 'The truth will set you free' (John 8:32):

Our goose is cooked. I and many others have been warning about what the United Nations and the global economic system is really all about, and that they would bring us to our knees (right now) by destroying the global economy (part of the Great Reset), so they can bring in global enslavement. I just read that once the PTB pull the bottom out from under all of us who don't have financial resources, and intentionally impoverish most people (going on for the past two years, and purposefully being worsened more and more), they will bring in a Universal Basic Income (UBI)---showing that what we've been warning the global governance system is really about, that they intentionally sow the chaos and then ride in "to save the day", made to appear like "a good thing" which in reality will be anything but, is all unquestionably true). The UBI will appear to be our salvation, but it is definitely NOT a good thing, or will not be a good thing, after all.

Undoubtedly that UBI will have major strings attached, such as something like "loyalty oaths" where our continuing to receive that "bailout" or "stimulus" will depend on our signing away our liberties and freedoms for temporary "security" (sound familiar?), and will require us not to engage in anything from expressing complaint, discontent, dissent, protest or refusal to bow down to the globalist's evil system without question, etc., to attempting to live independently and/or live our lives the way we individually see fit, or lose that UBI, leaving us destitute. Thus, most people will bow down to it without complaint, and despise all those who "make waves" or "rock the boat", the extremely-precarious "boat", selling them out to the "authorities" every chance they get to do so.

In other words, if we choose to "rock the boat" and "make waves", etc., we will be cut off from their so-called "lifeline" or "life preserver", and we will be allowed to starve to death; or, worse, we will be "disappeared" and eliminated for noncompliance. But, if we bow down to this "New World Order" system, we will literally be bowing down to Satan and evil, thus losing our souls for all eternity, though it will be disguised as "doing the will of God", the will of the antichrist in the false guise of being "Jesus the Christ himself", or some other such similar constraint falsely represented as "a good thing" and our "salvation".

The UBI will have so many strings attached that by agreeing to it, we will be signing away our free will, freedom of choice, right(s) to free speech, and our other rights (while the PTB fraudulently claim that by agreeing to it we will be "guaranteed" the preservation of our rights, and be "privileged" with them, whereas all those who do not bow down to it will not; which, of course, in actuality and reality, will never actually materialize (those so-called "rights", that is). And any and all "rocking the boat" will be met with the harshest consequences and penalties.

The whole thing is starting to be rolled out right now (through endless pandemics and/or otherwise-created chaos and economic meltdown(s) and insecurity, etc.), and one way or another the bottom will be finished being pulled out from under us, making us entirely dependent upon a completely evil global government system that wants most of us dead, and is working towards eradicating us more and more through increasingly infecting us with disease(s), making us weaker and weaker so we can't fight back, etc.

I've long been saying that we're being corralled, and being imprisoned while at relative "liberty" (appearing to be free when in reality we are not), and being marched, mostly-willingly, as cattle and/or sheep to the (literal) slaughter. Most of us have quite successfully been programmed to march blindly to our own demise with nary a bleat of protest, while all being under ever-expanding duress, all by intentional design of the PTB.

So, what's the remedy? The ONLY remedy is throwing ourselves at the feet of the One True God the Father through Jesus the Christ, truly repenting of all our sins (the evils in our lives), being entirely transformed and filled with the holy character of God, and restored to Him who created us and the entire universe in the first place, while completely refusing to bow down to the globalist "god(s)", and their entire system of enslavement in the guise of "saving" us, and not compromising in any way, shape, form or fashion with the "New World Order's" entire system of evil in the guise of "good", even if it means being murdered for taking that stand.

Therefore, no matter what we must NOT bow down to the globalist's actions, nor cooperate with their evil, vile system falsely disguised as "benevolent", WHATSOEVER. "Give (us) liberty, or give (us) death!" For, again, it is far better that we should die as Truly Free people, than to die on our knees as slaves to Evil. So, be Truly set free by returning to and being restored to our Maker, the Lord Jesus the Christ (John 1:1-14 and 14:6), now, before it is soon too late to do so. That is our ONLY hope, not bowing to Evil's system in any way(s) at all, no matter how much it is (and it WILL be) falsely and fraudulently represented as "our only choice", "our 'best' choice" and/or our "redemption", and even as the so-called "will of God Himself", etc.

'What is good for the goose, is (supposedly) good for the gander', even though it isn't, but it supposedly is. [Or, most people believe the lie that it is "good"---are you still one of those "sheople" now that you've read the above "fairy tale" and my comments(?); if so, WAKE THE FRAK UP, for there's no time to waste!]
