Samuel Adams told the American Colonists in words that are more applicable today than when Adams delivered them, “It is high time the people of this country explicitly say whether they will be free, or they will be slaves.”
At the time Adams said this, the American Colonists were slaves to a tyrannical government. The British government was telling the colonist how they must live, what choices they must make, and how they must think. This is what the Government of the United States is doing today; it is telling the American Citizen how they must live, what choices they must make, and how they must think. This is the very government that was established after the American Colonist explicitly said free. Today, the American Left is using that government to enslave the American Citizens. American Citizens, do you choose free or slaves?
The American Left has followed the same pattern collectivists have followed in the past to enslave populations. We must understand that the goal of collectivism is to enslave populations. Collectivism is an ideology that professes total harmony within a society can be achieved when all people conform to one way of thinking, and all are equal socially, politically, and economically. Although collectivism has been tried throughout the ages, it has always failed. It has failed because people were created to be individuals. Individuals are not identical in any way. We all have different talents, thoughts, desires, and ambitions. Our founders recognized this and founded our nation as an individualist nation. The collectivist movement has been trying to transform our nation to a collectivist nation for 250 years.
The collectivist movement has used indoctrination, propaganda, and intimidation to enslave different populations. They insist on indoctrination because it teaches people what to think and not how to think. The collectivist movement insists on total conformity in thought.
The collectivist movement has always been experts in the use of propaganda. Propaganda is a term used to describe artful lying. Skilled propagandists are experts at word manipulation and use the emotions of fear and hate to divide societies. A divided people are always easier to manipulate.
The collectivist will use what ever means is necessary to intimidate people into obeying. Lenin said to his enforcers that they must go into villages and publicly hang or shoot 100 people to gain the attention of all. If the enforcer was unwilling to do this, the enforcer would be one of the 100. The Democrats today are telling Americans that if you speak the truth for instance, that the 2020 election was stolen, you will be thrown into solitary confinement indefinitely. All constitutionally guaranteed Due Process will be denied to you because you are, according to them, a nonconformist and thus an enemy of the people.
If you are an American Citizen who chooses freedom rather than slavery. You must understand that you will be ridiculed, ostracized, demonized, and worse. If you are not willing to stand tall and proclaim truthfully and forcefully, in the manner of a Samuel Adams or a Patrick Henry, your dedication to freedom is suspect.
Are you willing to proclaim and embrace the words and the meaning of that incredible proclamation of Patrick Henry, “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
The American Colonists who proclaimed freedom, restated this famous proclamation, and more importantly lived its meaning. They were dedicated to freedom. I am willing to and have made this same proclamation. Yes, I understand the meaning. I also understand that life under collectivism. When the collectivist demands it is their right and duty to declare how I live my life, what choices I must make, and how I must think. it means I must denounce Jesus Christ and embrace the gods of secularism, that I must submit to being the subject for their health experiments, and that I must think absurdities like men can have babies, that sexual perversion is normal and desired, that favoring people because of the color of their skin is not racism but compassion, and that good is evil and evil is good.
I, like Samuel Adams and Patrick Henry, choose freedom and understand that freedom always has a cost to it. To choose slavery is simple, if you have no principles and are easily indoctrinated, believe propaganda, and easily succumb to intimidation.
