Today is Easter Sunday.
I always post something on Easter, to commemorate the Holy Day. I am late posting today, because I decided to take my own half day off, to rest.
I prefer to write holy day materials on the day itself, as I believe there is a special sort of spiritual energy going around on these days, which I should be happy to tap into.
Today, the thing closest to the front of my brain is the fact that last year, President Donald Trump said that we would end the lockdown on Easter. This date, one year ago today, was continually cited by Trump, with the media continually saying that it was impossible.
Needless to say, we did not reopen on Easter.
We are now a year out from that, and we have yet to be freed from the bonds of this lockdown, which has been used to strip us of all of our freedoms. These freedoms, we should recall, are not simply given to us by the Constitution, but by God. The freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution were all cited by the Founding Fathers as coming from God.
We should also understand that these basic freedoms, which have been taken from us, were also considered the basic freedoms of people long before the Constitution. They are also considered freedoms in other cultures, and among totally different races.
We have been denied the right to move around freely, and we have been compelled to cover our faces with a mask. These are violations of human autonomy that have not happened before, anywhere on earth in recorded history. In Russia, at the height of the Bolshevik Revolution, or in China, at the height of the Cultural Revolution two points in history where we think of governments being the most out of control the people had more freedoms than we have now.
During the most outrageous points of any communist revolution, people were still allowed to meet in homes with their neighbors. None of these communist revolutions required people to cover up their mouths and noses with a piece of cloth, nor did these communists attempt to compel people to be injected with a gene-altering experimental substance.
You could find places where there were curfews under communism, but the idea of totally restricting peoples movement, for months on end, is something you will not find anywhere in history.
Further, though there were internal passports under communism, they were only used on trains moving from city to city. What they are attempting to roll out with this vaccine passport is a system where you are required to show identification in order to enter a store. Your entry into that store is then entered into a database, where every movement you make is permanently stored.
We have less freedom than anyone else, ever in history.
We should also note, as weve mentioned Russia and China as places which went through a period of history where they had low freedom, at the current point in time, both Russians and Chinese have significantly more freedom than the people of America or Europe. Those two countries have implemented some coronavirus measures, but nothing like what the West has done.
There is only one reason that Western nations have been able to strip people of their freedoms in such an extreme way, and that is because people have tolerated it. At any point over the last 14 months, Americans could have poured out into the streets and said no. But they didnt do that. Instead, the average Western man has gone along with every step of this process.
People are also ready to go along with even more extreme degradation. It has now been announced that the vaccine passport is in the works, and will be rolled out soon. This will mean that without the vaccine (or forged vaccine credentials, which the FBI has recently announced will be a federal crime soon, and may actually already be a crime), you will not be able to enter stores, or get on a plane, or a train, or do really anything else. It will also mean that even if you do have the vaccine, your every movement will be tracked not just by the government, but by private companies. We have yet to see any significant backlash against this plan.
Here is what has happened: we have lost our belief that we are human beings, made in the image of God.
The argument that should be made against all of this dehumanization, the argument that should trump whatever gibberish the government comes up with as a justification for our dehumanization, should be very simple: I am a man, made in the image of God, and I deserve dignity.
We now accept that we are nothing more than fleshy objects. We are ugly, ugly giant bags of mostly water. With our connection to God lost, we have no explanation as to why we deserve dignity.
Because we have lost that connection to God, and lost our understanding of ourselves as divine creations, we cannot formulate an argument as to why our dignity and our freedom should trump some convoluted argument about saving lives.
Founding Father Patrick Henry, who was a deeply religious man, said: Give me liberty or give me death.
