Eugyppius – the man and the mission


EUGYPPIUS: a plague chronicle is one of the most remarkable documents of the Covid crisis. From complete obscurity this newsletter, written by a thirtysomething German academic, has grown to attract tens of thousands of subscribers. It has achieved international renown due to the masterful overview of what the writer calls the Public Health Bureaucracy. The front page reads: ‘We are witnessing an unprecedented, comprehensive failure of policy, medicine and science. The world will never be the same.’

His ‘chronicle’ (named after a fifth/sixth century monk) began on July 23, 2021 with a ‘primer’ stating baldly that ‘corona has been a complete failure of policy and science. Everything that the media tells you about corona is wrong, and everything your government has done about corona is pointless. In what follows, there will be no citations, but you can easily ascertain the truth of everything here’.  

Through the lucid explorations of the data, motivations and outrageous deceptions presented as fact by the governments of the world, he has become one of the most readable and intelligent critics of the mess we know as the New Normal. Eugyppius’s Substack has documented the drift to a new authoritarianism in the West, driven by junk data, fantasy models and the use of fear propaganda. His work commands attention as a record of the mad wickedness of the times, and also as a reminder of the power of one man who refused to go insane.

In an interview with him last week I was able to ask him what motivated him to devote so much time to all this.

‘It‘s pretty clear that, culturally and politically, something in the West is very much out of balance. That old pre-2020 world isn’t coming back . . . I realised something was very wrong with media portrayals of corona and the politics surrounding it relatively late, around the end of summer 2020.’

He had most of it nailed as early as October 2020 on another platform (republished a year later on his new platform) – the useless masks, theatrical Perspex, the punishment of the young, even Covid’s non-natural origin. He described how the ‘disease bureaucrats’ seized power: ‘Covid is the ideological construct our disease bureaucrats used to justify their failed lockdowns; but at root, this construct was probably not of their making. They merely recycled the selfsame propaganda by which shadowy actors had sold them on lockdowns in the first place.

‘It looks like some people very much wanted Western governments to implement lockdowns. This led to a remarkable realignment of opinion, whereby the elite Leftist establishment, which had sought to minimise the virus as much as possible, totally reversed their position by early March 2020 and began advocating a maximal approach. The Covid that we have now is all downstream from that, and there is no changing it.’

Until I found Eugyppius I was at a loss to articulate the many points of suspicion which were far more distressing than the brief flu I got from the virus. His work, meticulously evidenced, dispassionately presented, is a sane and fact-based alternate model of reality to the mendacious siren song of the media.

In one of the most studious and diligent investigations of the Covid phenomenon, Eugyppius began to frame the wider issues arising from his detailed analysis of junk data and available factsLockdown failure became vaccine failure, which indicated widespread damage to immunity through vaccination.  The authorities knew this from their own data, yet continued to advance a collapsing narrative regardless. Discussion became increasingly impossible, as it became apparent that the boosters were making everything much worse.

Why did our leaders do this, he asks? He says they believe their own propaganda and they are as ignorant as they seem. This, he argues, gave rise to a new political system, in open defiance of the fact that the vaccines do not reduce transmission of Covid

Thus secular society has been beset by what you might call desperate, rabid moral instincts that attach themselves to all kinds of arbitrary things.’

Eugyppius argued last December why, due to what is known and accepted as Original Antigenic Sin, vaccination should stop immediately, an effect he’d previously predicted. He noticed the non-natural origin of Omicron, strongly suggesting its production in gain-of-function research

Summarising the mistakes in the narrative, Eugyppius got the attention of many readers sympathetic and otherwise, as the Guardian denounced him and attempts were made to shut Substack down.

What began as an attempt to document a panic over a virus came to cohere into an indictment of our social and political culture. Our science is basically Reddit, he observes, being based on the exclusion of observation through the consensus defence of peer review. With his background in academic history, he has been able to furnish us with some remarkable parallels to the compulsory mania.

As a result of the under-reporting of vaccine injuries, a few weeks ago Eugyppius asked for reader reports on their vaccinations. ‘From Sore Arms to Sudden Death’ was the result, a harrowing read which quietly notes the suffering and misery of the victims of what Eugyppius described to me as: ‘The public health bureaucracy, which will be massively expanded and more directly involved in policy than ever before. People have learned to accept all kinds of bizarre interventions in their daily lives.’

Eugyppius argues that the nature of our regime – our total system of media, markets and moral collapse – is what explains the avoidable disasters unfolding around us. He thinks: ‘The late-stage political decay of the West . . . shows very little discipline or direction in the exercise of power . . . our governments increasingly act in irrational and unreasonable ways, and there’s no obvious means of stopping them. I think above all, I’ve come to appreciate better how many of our problems are systemic and interrelated. Mass immigration, corona hysteria, globalisation, consumerism, antiracism, homosexuality and transgenderism, climate change nonsense, foreign military intervention — it is all tightly interrelated, and these are all different facets of the same phenomenon.’

However, he ended our exchange with a note of hope, inspired by the survivors of the weird, fake reality of the late Soviet Union.

‘As dissidents, I think the most important thing we can do is create an alternative sphere of cultural production, inquiry and debate, that is more dynamic, more true and more interesting than the stuff going on in mainstream, regime-approved outlets. This is very much what dissidents did in old Warsaw Pact countries.’
