It’s a dynamic of history, in this fallen world, that there’s always somebody looking to enslave big chunks of the human race. That dynamic hasn’t changed, but two things have.
*Now they believe they really have a shot at enslaving everyone, the whole planet, not just continents and countries.
*They used to try to accomplish this by waging war. Now they’re using lies, flattery, seduction, fear porn, all backed up by more technology than is good for us.
Revisiting an incident in 2015 reminded me of ongoing current events in 2021. Then, a neighborhood busybody saw some kids playing with toy guns, went off-the-wall hysterical and called the school, and “school officials” suspended the kids from school for the rest of the year… for playing with toy guns… at home. Now the kids probably are immortalized as “terrorists” in the school district’s records.
Now, in 2021, having made most of the world crazy with fear, the enslavers justify every act of tyranny–every “mandate”–as necessary in the war against the killer virus. Or whatever new “variant” or new disease comes after it. There will always be one. Or they can dream one up as needed.
The idea is to keep us so terrified of dying from some horrible new disease that we won’t resist the erosion of our freedoms. It’s going to work because every new crisis will be “explained” with a lot of pseudo-scientific gobbledygook–people will nod their heads sagely and pretend to understand, because they won’t want to be mocked as ignorant.
And along the way, we only lose some silly little gewgaws like the security of our persons and our homes, free speech, freedom to assemble (unless it’s a riot: they’ll always allow riots), equal protection of the laws, due process of law… Indeed, there won’t be “law” anymore. Just mandates and directives. Backed up by Big Tech and a Chinese-style “social credit system” that tracks everything you say and do.
It’s all supposed to lead us to an earthly paradise. Loopy humanists say so.
Let me close with a quote from New York Mayor “Bill De Blasio” (not his real name):
“If I had my druthers, an all-powerful central government would determine your day to day reality.”
May the Lord Almighty defend us.
