Are you one of those who make fun of people who talk about Free-dumb? Do you value “free speech”?
Have you thought about what your life will be like when you no longer have any freedom to do as you wish? You will not be able to complain because that will be deemed “hate speech”. Can you see that the mandates are taking your freedom from you one thing at a time. And now with vaccine passports, all of your information can be accumulated digitally. You can be controlled by authorities in all you attempt to do.
If you decide you do not want to take a vaccine for any reason, you can be refused entry to anything you wish to do. If you criticize the government or any other authority you can have your salary docked or your bank account rendered un-usable. If your loved ones disobey some mandate you can be punished along with them. It sounds like science fiction. But it is real. It is happening now in China.
“Freedom is not empowerment. Empowerment is what the Serbs have in Bosnia. Anybody can grab a gun and be empowered. It’s not entitlement. An entitlement is what people on welfare get, and how free are they? It’s not an endlessly expanding list of rights — the “right” to education, the “right” to food and housing. That’s not freedom, that’s dependency. Those aren’t rights, those are the rations of slavery — hay and a barn for human cattle. There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.”P.J. O’Rourke
We MUST get rid of these mandates. None of them are helpful. None of them are working in the way the government wants them to. People are furious. Unless they are those who are so immured in the “narrative” that they do not question it. There are those who go along with whatever the TV news tells them. They do not question, they do not ponder the rightness of a “mandate”. They acquiesce quietly. And worse than that they help police those who might question, those who might disobey. Just like crabs in a barrel will pull their own back down into the crowd at the bottom if they see another crab trying to escape by climbing the walls of their barrel. It is frightening to watch.
There is a group of people who believe it is right to vaccinate young children from 6 months to 5 years old. Why? The survival rate for young children even up to the age of 18 is so great that there is no need for a vaccine. Yet they try to make up statistics to scare parents into vaccinating their children. The scare tactics are wrong. The idea of injecting these drugs into the bodies of little children is abhorrent. Why are people so blind that they cannot see this? They do not read the articles telling of the harm done by this vaccine. You will hear nothing about vaccine injury on the Mainstream News. These stories are censored on platforms like Facebook and Twitter. One must go to Rumble, Telegram, GETTR or the other uncensored companies. Here is a link to several good ones. https://medium.com/real-social-post/top-10-alternative-media-list-1ed52befa70c
Look what they tried to do to Joe Rogan. He is a man who lets his guests speak their own minds for hours at a time. Often as long as 3 or even 5 hours. Who has time to listen to all of an interview that goes on that long? But some people do. And then they send around shorter clips from the long-form interviews. The show interesting clips with pertinent information in small amounts. Some of Rogan’s guests are controversial. He gives them time to explain themselves. He is very fair. He does not try to lead them, steer them or exploit them during their time with him. This is the exact opposite of most mainstream news outlets. They stick to soundbites, they love to trip up their guests. They try to trick them into divulging something they did not mean to divulge. And the time is so short that it never allows for long answers or time to meander through the guests brain to see what might be lurking there.
In the quote above PJ O’Rourke points out that much of what we think of as “help” today is nothing but entitlements and handouts. All these “rights” everyone is always clamoring for are actually making us more and more dependent. And of course more and more afraid of dissent for fear of losing those “rights” which the government could take away.
The idea of being self-sufficient is sort of a joke today. “Preppers” are Hell-bent on becoming able to support themselves on the land and rise to any contingency. They accumulate food, learn self-sufficiency skills and arm themselves. They all need tinfoil hats, according to the Mainstream Media. But do they?
Those truckers in Canada seem pretty self-sufficient. Truckers are an independent lot. They are like modern-day cowboys. They help their own. And they will help strangers in need on the highway. They are proud of their abilities and competent to get the job done. I would trust a trucker over most other professions. In fact, now that I think about it, I would trust any trucker from the convoys blocking roads in Canada over just about any politician you can name. (Even the good Politicians owe favors and sometimes (usually) betray their constituents)
Have you read any of the writings of Thomas Paine? He was eloquent and outspoken. His pamphlet Common Sense spread and went viral before there was an Internet, in fact before there was a US Post Office. Part of one of his sayings about Freedom is quoted here: “the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods, and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.” Thomas Paine, December 13, 1776.
And yet today people scoff and make fun of the word Freedom, calling it “free-dumb”. When I hear this it makes my heart ache. And honestly, it makes me mad. How can these people be so ignorant? Of course, no one taught them how hard people fought for THEIR freedom. That same freedom we all benefit from NOW. The same freedom which has been eroded bit by bit over the last two years until today we have nearly forgotten what it was like to just get in a car and drive anywhere to enjoy whatever we wished unmasked and certainly without having to show our papers to be admitted. Now that is over. How did this happen? And how can there be so many people in favor of it? When it is pointed out to these people that the passports with their private information attached are dangerous, they look puzzled. “It is no big deal.” They say.
But it is a big deal. The truckers understand that. Many if not most of them have had vaccines. They are NOT anti-vax. Most of them are against mandates. They are for bodily integrity. They are for personal freedom and individual rights. They are for the FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Aren’t you?
Several times lately I have pointed out that no one is coming to save us. We must save ourselves. However, I was wrong. The Truckers are coming to save us. They see that we need help and help is on its way.
And to thwart them the authorities are calling them terrorists. These truck drivers are not trying to terrorize anyone, they are peacefully defending freedom. They are independent thinkers. Self-sufficient and glad to help others, they are the backbone of any country. Canada has a large contingent of them. Now truckers are coming from the USA to help them.
But there is another type of person.
In a recent article Jon Rappoport described these people thusly:
“I follow orders. I trust the experts. I do what everyone else does. I’m normal. No one can accuse me of stepping out of line. When a group breaks away from Normal, I turn my back on them. That group must be wrong. If they’re fighting for freedom, they’re REALLY wrong. I know that because I don’t have freedom. Censor that group. Stop them. I’m already a card-carrying citizen, so earning my vaccine passport is easy for me. It confirms what I already am.”
This would seem absurd if it were not clearly in evidence in our world today. But Albert Camus wrote in The Myth of Sisyphus; “I draw from the absurd three consequences, which are my revolt, my freedom, and my passion,”
That prompted an interviewer to ask whether a philosophy predicated on absurdity might incline people to despair. He answered with words we all need to comprehend and work to implement;
“We must mend what has been torn apart, make justice imaginable again in a world so obviously unjust, give happiness a meaning once more.”
I urge anyone reading this to put their passion into a revolt and take back our freedom. No one is going to do it for you.
