Societies are never stationary. They are moving in one direction or another. The pendulum is swinging toward a society where the people are free to and are encouraged to be self-reliant, or it is swinging toward a society where it is demanded that the people be government reliant, and government controlled. The pendulum is swinging toward an individualist society or a collectivist society. The United States is at a critical point in that movement. We were founded as the most pure individualist state that had ever existed. In our Declaration of Independence, we recognized and based our founding on the absolute of individualism, and that is that liberties come from our Creator and are unalienable; they can not be taken away nor can they be given away. So adamant were these people about this concept that when they wrote the United States Constitution eleven years later, they insisted the Bill of Rights be added to that Constitution where they stated absolutes such as NO law shall be made and CANNOT be infringed upon.
This concept of individualism is based on belief in the individual and the requirement that the individual be free; they are encouraged to search for knowledge, to be independent in mind and spirit, to dream, to achieve, and to be free the constraints of big and tyrannical government. In order to have such a society, it would be necessary to encourage healthy competition, to maintain a society built on rule of law and not arbitrary law, and to have a society that maintained priorities that honored those founding documents.
The pendulum in the United States is swinging away from the individualist principle to the collectivist principle, which is a principle that negates the believe in individuals and places its priorities on all conforming to the dictates and beliefs of groups. Any and all societies that have swung into the collectivist ideology have become societies controlled by big and tyrannical governments. Because of the quest for control, these societies cater to the lowest common denominator and punish the achievers. It is referred to as the dumbing down of the society. They have become societies where the rule of law is morphed into arbitrary law, or the law as declared by the tyrant. And their values and priorities become established to appease for the sake of political expediency.
This is happening in the United States today. We are being told that to bring about what is referred to as equity, the achiever must be punished while the underachiever is rewarded. Using this approach, the common denominator will always go lower, and all of society will suffer accordingly. Gov. Kate Brown of Oregon, a devoted collectivist or communist, signed a bill that drops the requirement that high school students prove proficiency in reading, writing or math before graduation. This is lowering the common denominator. This brings about equity as defined by the collectivist. It is racist. It is demeaning. It is demoralizing. It is critical for any aspiring tyrant. It tells these very people it claims to help that they are incapable. It has sentenced these people to a life of poverty and despair or a life of crime. It has advanced the swing of the pendulum toward the evil of collectivism.
Joe Biden and others in the Democrat party, or the Communist Party of the United States, said we will not adhere to rule of law. Instead, we are implementing arbitrary law. Biden said, I do not care what the law says, nor do I care what the Supreme Court has ruled, I will have the CDC extend the rent moratorium. Pelosi and other members of his politburo cheered him for doing what every tyrant does, and that is declaring their own law. Biden said, he knows what he did is against the law, it is unconstitutional, and it wouldn’t be upheld, but he knows what he did fits within his collectivist ideology, and therefore it is his right to declare it the law.
Andrew Cuomo has been forced to resign as governor of New York. This action came about because of a long history of him sexually harassing women. It is interesting that these allegations forced him to resign, yet the substantiated rape charges against Biden did not force him to resign his then senate seat, later the office of Vice President, and now the office of President. Whatever is politically expedient is the standard of the collectivist. Both Cuomo and Biden have been proven to be sexual predators and deviants. Neither should be holding any public office. Cuomo also knowingly, and for politically expedient reasons, killed many older people by insisting that those with the China Virus still must be accepted into nursing homes occupied by sick elderly people. Many of them died because of this action. Cuomo had his staff lied about the numbers of people he killed. The collectivist left ignored the story and made every attempt to conceal the facts. He was praised for his China Virus actions by the collectivists, but denounced for his sexual deviancy. Whatever is politically expedient.
The pendulum continues to swing. I will continue to make as many Americans as possible, both Freedom Loving Americans and collectivists, aware of what the collectivists are doing to hasten their promised transformation of the United States to a Marxist totalitarian state. We must bring these specific incidents to the attention of all Americans in hopes that it will enable us to have an open and honest discussion. I know there are some of you, yes even some of you who call yourselves Freedom Loving Americans, who will tell me this is a total waste of time. I remind you people that the 2nd Continental Congress had been in session for over a year before the Declaration of Independence was adopted. The pendulum for total independence from the tyranny of government really started to swing in January of 1776 when “Commons Sense” by Thomas Paine was published. Thomas Paine stepped out in faith, just as Samuel Adams had lived in faith. The Declaration of Independence was adopted. You who have chosen to be critical and naysayers, I implore you, step out in faith. Stop your ego satisfying criticism and become as Thomas Paine and Samuel Adams, dedicated to “Setting Brushfires of Freedom” in the minds of all Americans. We have been told, “For the truth will set you free.”
