Do you want to be a free individual living in a country where you make your choices and you are responsible for the consequences, or do you want to live in a country where the government dictates to you how you live your life and how you think? The former is called individualism and the latter is called collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressivism, Democrats, - all virtually the same).
That a question like this is even asked in the United States, a country founded on individualism, is because the people of the nation have taken the freedom that is inherent under individualism for granted. The people, over the years, have become uninformed, uninterested, and uninvolved. An uninformed, uninterested, and uninvolved people are a people who will lose their freedom and will become slaves to a despotic government. This is happening in the United States today.
Each citizen must ask if they wish to live as a free citizen or if they accept being a slave to the state where the bureaucrats, technocrats, and experts in the government dictate how they are to live their lives and how they are to think. This would be a Marxist totalitarian state. Marx told us that in order to arrive at his communist state, or his utopian state, all must conform to collectivist thought and all must be equal socially, politically, and economically. Only then Marx claimed, could society be in total harmony. However, Marx warned us that in order to arrive at this harmonious state of social justice, we must go through a time where the state is under the Dictatorship of the Proletariat. In order to achieve the ultimate ends of a totally harmonious society, despotic means would need to be used.
If you choose to live as a slave to the state, there is no need for you to do anything. Remain uninformed, uninterested, and uninvolved. If you are an active supporter of the transformation to a Marxist totalitarian state professed by the American left, continue to support the Democrat party and the RINO wing of the Republican party, continue to support the destruction of the core family unit by promoting immorality, sexual deviance, and parental irresponsibility, continue to support big government and government mandates of all kinds, continue to support the transition of all education to indoctrination, continue to support the transformation of rule of law to arbitrary law, continue to support the politicizing of our federal agencies, continue to support that it is more important who counts the votes than who votes, or continue to support exactly what the Democrats and the RINO’s are supporting.
If you choose to live as a free individual where you are self-reliant, where you are responsible for the consequences of your choices, and where you are a member of the sovereign community and the government is limited in scope and functions to be only the protector of your liberties and protector from foreign invasion in any manner, you must become informed, interested, and involved. If you are already a part of the community who is informed, interested, and involved, you must double or triple what you are already doing.
Rand Paul recently said in relation to the China Virus mandates: ““They can’t arrest all of us. They can’t keep all of your kids home from school. They can’t keep every government building closed – although I’ve got a long list of ones they might keep closed or might ought to keep closed. We don’t have to accept the mandates, lockdowns, and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and bureaucrats. We can simply say no, not again. Nancy Pelosi — you will not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs. We have either had COVID, had the vaccine, or been offered the vaccine. We will make our own health choices. We will not show you a passport, we will not wear a mask, we will not be forced into random screenings and testing’s so you can continue your drunk-with-power rein over the Capitol.”
I say this same concept must apply to all areas where the government has mandated they are the sovereign and thus they have complete and total power over every aspect of our lives including how we think. We must simply say no.
There is much to do, and not much time in which to do it, so we have to set priorities. Of course, to vote from an informed and responsible position in all elections is mandatory. But there are three other crucial areas in which Freedom Loving Americans must double, triple, and quadruple their efforts. First, we must reverse the movement to transform our education system to an indoctrination system. We can do this by removing children from the public school system and have our children educated via home schooling, which includes joining with other parents in small neighborhood groups, sending our children to private schools, or sending them to charter schools. In addition, we must be attending school board meetings in mass and voicing our concerns. We must support actively Freedom Loving Americans for school boards while demanding the resignations of or recalling those school board members who support the collectivist movement.
Secondly, we must take this same approach in our city and county governments. City and county officials have taken the position they are czars of their little domain, be that domain establishing building codes, zoning codes, policing, or health dictates. We must turn out in mass to meetings and voice our concerns. We must demand the resignations of or recall those who support the collectivist movement.
Thirdly, we must be about “Setting Brushfires of Freedom.” What does this mean? Remember, most Americans are uninformed, uninterested, and uninvolved. Most Americans do not know the differences between individualism and collectivism. Most American have been indoctrinated, are affected by the propaganda of the left, and react to the intimidation of the left. “Setting Brushfires of Freedom” requires you become informed as to what are the differences. Once you understand the differences you can help the indoctrinated come to understand the error of their way by asking critical and penetrating questions. You will not argue or debate, but simply ask the questions, make a comment, so the indoctrinated will start to question if what they have been led to believe can work, is true.
Senator Paul gave us the proper way to oppose the intimidation. It is simply a matter of saying no. It means that we take the responsibility for the values of our children and grandchildren and do not allow the schools to instill their demented and evil beliefs. It means we do not accept the politically correct mandates of the left. It means we become like Rosa Park’s and say no, I will not move from this seat. Yes, it is difficult. Yes, we will be ostracized and demonized. Yes, we will be a critical part of the involved who have chosen to remain free.
What do you choose; to be free or a slave? If you say you choose free, but refuse to be interested, informed, or involved, you are simply deceiving yourself and in fact you will be aiding the collectivist movement by becoming a “useful idiot” for their cause.
It is either yes to freedom or yes to slavery.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
