“If you want to tell people the truth, first you have to make them laugh. Otherwise they will kill you.” Oscar Wilde
What WE THE PEOPLE have witnessed via The POSoTUS and his kaiserreich is a GROSS erosion of OUR INALIENABLE rights on a far reaching scale. Never before have we had such a vindictive assault on our First Amendment rights all under the guise of “vaccine” mandates.
Gandhi stated it best, “swaraj (freedom of the individual) would come NOT by the acquisition of authority by a few, but by the acquisition of the capacity by all to resist authority when abused.”
This belief resonates loudly today.
It is our freedom of the individual that The Constitution protects and The POSoTUS’ kaiserreich seeks to eviscerate.
I may not be the most eloquent speaker – but the thoughts ring true. We can only be pushed so far…the pendulum can only swing so far before it swings the other way. Even in my own corner of this country; myself and others are vilified by the far left: calling us “bio-terrorists”, “extremists” and our brains are addled.
Are we really that extreme for wanting and demanding our Constitutional rights preserved, honored and respected?
How is that extreme or addle-minded?
Could it be that the left has become so indoctrinated that they forget or simply do not know (useful idiots) and thus can only view our Constitutional rights in the abstract?
Notice how they’ll accept anything except a man who stands alone.
They recognize him at once . . . . There’s a special, insidious kind of hatred for him.
They forgive criminals.
They admire dictators.
Crime and violence are a tie. A form of mutual dependence. They need ties.
They’ve got to force their miserable little personalities on every single person they meet.
The independent man kills them—because they don’t exist within him and that’s the only form of existence they know. Notice the malignant kind of resentment against any idea that propounds independence. Notice the malice toward an independent man.Ayn Rand
Civics was a class that used to be required before you could graduate from high school.
You were taught what was in the U.S. Constitution.
And after all the student rebellions in the ’60s, civics was banished from the student curriculum and was replaced by something called social studies.
Here we live in a country that has a fabulous constitution and all these guarantees, a contract between the citizens and the government – and nobody knows what’s in it.
It’s one of the best kept secrets.
And so, if you don’t know what your rights are, how can you stand up for them?
And furthermore, if you don’t know what is in that document, how can you care if someone is shredding it?Frank Zappa, 1991
What’s really sad, the left today feels we have more rights under The POSoTUS, more so than ever before. They are the perfect definition of ‘useful idiots’. They simply cannot or will not see the slippery slope of government overreach. Today it’s the mandates regarding a “vaccine”. But what about tomorrow? And then the next?
It’s called The Danger of Indifference:
What is indifference?
Etymologically, the word means “no difference.” A strange and unnatural state in which the lines blur between light and darkness, dusk and dawn, crime and punishment, cruelty and compassion, good and evil.
What are its courses and inescapable consequences?
Is it a philosophy?
Is there a philosophy of indifference conceivable?
Can one possibly view indifference as a virtue?
Is it necessary at times to practice it simply to keep one’s sanity, live normally, enjoy a fine meal and a glass of wine, as the world around us experiences harrowing upheavals?
Of course, indifference can be tempting — more than that, seductive. It is so much easier to look away from victims. It is so much easier to avoid such rude interruptions to our work, our dreams, our hopes.
It is, after all, awkward, troublesome, to be involved in another person’s pain and despair. Yet, for the person who is indifferent, his or her neighbor are of no consequence. And, therefore, their lives are meaningless. Their hidden or even visible anguish is of no interest.
Indifference reduces the Other to an abstraction.
In a way, to be indifferent to that suffering is what makes the human being inhuman. Indifference, after all, is more dangerous than anger and hatred. Anger can at times be creative.
One writes a great poem, a great symphony.
One does something special for the sake of humanity because one is angry at the injustice that one witnesses.
But indifference is never creative.
Even hatred at times may elicit a response.
You fight it.
You denounce it.
You disarm it.
Indifference elicits no response.
Indifference is not a response.
Indifference is not a beginning; it is an end.
And, therefore, indifference is always the friend of the enemy, for it benefits the aggressor — never his victim, whose pain is magnified when he or she feels forgotten.
The political prisoner in his cell, the hungry children, the homeless refugees — not to respond to their plight, not to relieve their solitude by offering them a spark of hope is to exile them from human memory. And in denying their humanity, we betray our own.
Indifference, then, is not only a sin, it is a punishment.
And this is one of the most important lessons of this outgoing century’s wide-ranging experiments in good and evil.Excerpts of Perils of Indifference, Ellie Weisel 12 April, 1999
IF we allow such gross overreach now; the demolishment of our First Amendment rights, the autonomy over our own bodies – under the guise of public health, or the rationalization “this doesn’t affect me”, then when does it stop? When will it affect you? And when it does, who will be left to stand up for you?
When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself.Dalrymple
