The Sickness Of Control.

We live in an age of control, where it seems everyone wants to control everyone else. Every day we slip further and further into a totalitarian prison world of censorship, taxation, rules & regulations, illegal mandates, forced injections, house arrest, and the erosion of Constitutional rights.

But while governments and NGO’s (non-government organizations) are largely responsible for this encroaching tyranny, many individuals are also working to limit our freedom and enact bans on things they disapprove of.

One example of this is a recent post on social media by GAB founder Andrew Torba. He said “If you thought the Babylonian whores melting down over losing their ability to murder babies was bad, just wait until we ban porn and you will see how men react.”

Torba’s GAB prides itself on being a free speech platform which, they claim, censors nothing but illegal content. So what does Torba mean when he says “wait until we ban porn”? Does he mean GAB will ban porn? I’ve never seen any porn on the site so he must mean he wants the government to make porn illegal, which is a misuse of power and a violation of our Bill of Rights, a document Torba claims he strongly supports. It’s also odd that he lumps abortions and porn into the same pot. While some may find porn to be distasteful or even vulgar, it’s hardly in the same category as chopping up an infant and sucking it out of a womb. Abortion is murder, but you’d be hard pressed to find a passage in the Bible that clearly defines dirty movies as sinful. Photos and videos didn’t even exist when the Bible was written. “Thou shalt not commit adultery” and “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife” are about as close as you’re going to get. It’s quite a stretch to believe those two commandments refer to looking at explicit images of people you don’t even know and who most likely posed for them voluntarily. Yes, some porn is produced through the exploitation of women and children, but so are clothing, shoes, and electronics, and we don’t ban those.

I didn’t write this to be a hit piece against Andrew Torba. He seems like a decent guy. I just happened to see his GAB post and it made me think about the idea of bans in general.

I began thinking how the obsession with banning things we don’t like is a worldwide sickness of control. We ban all kinds of things we disapprove of personally, whether it’s logical or not. We ban drugs, alcohol, sex, speech, menthol cigarettes, strolling in the park after dark, living in an RV on your own land, driving over an arbitrary speed limit based on nothing, cutting hair without a license, and even walking on the grass. And worse than the bans is our willing compliance with such nonsense.

In Torba’s case, it made me think about the slippery slope this all sits on. While GAB is proudly a free speech platform at the moment, Torba’s remark about banning porn reminded me that he is an “in your face” Christian, so I wonder how long it’s going to be before a desire to ban porn turns into a desire to ban anything else he interprets to be contrary to his faith. I get the impression that to Torba, your personal beliefs are wrong unless they conform with his. That’s the way it always seems to work out when dealing with hardcore adherents of any religious faith, Christian or not. It often applies to atheists, as well.

My libertarian nature makes me perfectly okay with Torba’s beliefs, the Pope’s beliefs, and your beliefs. But I would like to be left alone with my beliefs. And if I want to spend a few minutes watching a sordid video, that’s between me and my creator. It’s really none of your business. And the experience shouldn’t be banned just because you, or Torba, or anyone else, disagrees.

Only A Fool.

How long will it take to realize this? Only a fool can be happy to show off a pass for things he used to do without a pass.

Don't be a fool. Don't be a slave.

Benjamin Franklin Warned Us About Joe Biden.

Benjamin Franklin warned us what would happen if we became weak and begged for safety. Tyrants like Joe Biden would be quick to offer fake words of encouragement while stripping us of our rights. 

The warning was there. And tyranny is now here, cheered on by an emotionally stunted population too lazy to read history and so broken in spirit they wear symbols of slavery as badges of honor. 

We're a nation in distress, being destroyed from within without a shot fired. But it's not over yet. Strong people always break the chains of slavery eventually. For as Franklin also said, "Energy and persistence conquer all things".

This Is Still Our Country.

"There is nothing wrong with America that faith, love of freedom, intelligence, and energy of her citizens cannot cure." --Dwight D. Eisenhower

We Have To Fight Beyond The Internet.

Blogs, videos, and social media sites have been extremely important in our efforts to educate people and warn them about the fake pandemic, the dangers of face masks and gene therapy jabs, and the ongoing assault on humanity by the lying psychopaths who want to control and enslave us. Despite all the censorship, the internet has been amazingly effective because everyone can jump in and do something to push back against our oppressors. There have been too many of us to silence, and we're getting louder! But we're also reaching the point where online efforts are no longer enough. Just like in politics, the situation is becoming very divided. There are freedom fighters, freedom haters, and a whole bunch of people who aren't on either side and try to tune it all out. The fighters already know the message, the haters refuse to listen to the message, and the rest don't even know there is a message. It's that last group that we have to reach if we're going to win this.

And I don't think we'll be able to reach them in the digital realm where the senses are overwhelmed by news, propaganda, brain-numbing TV shows, and endless cat memes. We have to find another way.

The way forward is to go analog. We've got to get really active in the real world, and that means putting bumper stickers on our cars, wearing shirts with anti-mask and anti-vax themes, distributing flyers door to door in our neighborhoods, handing out brochures to people we meet in the park or in stores, hanging signs & banners in high traffic areas, and having the courage to speak up when we hear someone praising authoritarian garbage like digital passports, mask mandates, and vaxxing children. Our silence implies consent, and we do not consent.

Other real world actions we can take include writing to our city, county, and state elected officials, writing letters to the editor of local newspapers, and letting businesses know we won't be spending any money with them if they comply with illegal government tyranny. 

The internet will still be important in this fight, but we absolutely have to step away from our computers a few hours a week and reach people in different ways. And consider this: a social media account can be instantly deleted by Twitter or Facebook. But the city doesn't have the manpower to take down hundreds of signs taped up on every light pole or stop sign. We can overwhelm the opposition with cheap guerrilla warfare tactics that they won't be able to stop: we are many, they are few.

So get busy. Be creative. Do what they aren't expecting. And let's make sure the world hears us!
