The root of a free government is its respect for individual rights. Ayn Rand
Freedom is the fundamental requirement of man’s mind. Ayn Rand
“Since knowledge, thinking, and rational action are properties of the individual, since the choice to exercise his rational faculty or not depends on the individual, man’s survival requires that those who think be free of the interference of those who don’t. Since men are neither omniscient nor infallible, they must be free to agree or disagree, to cooperate or to pursue their own independent course, each according to his own rational judgment. Freedom is the fundamental requirement of man’s mind.
“A rational mind does not work under compulsion; it does not subordinate its grasp of reality to anyone’s orders, directives, or controls; it does not sacrifice its knowledge, its view of the truth, to anyone’s opinions, threats, wishes, plans, or ‘welfare.’ Such a mind may be hampered by others, it may be silenced, proscribed, imprisoned, or destroyed; it cannot be forced; a gun is not an argument. (An example and symbol of this attitude is Galileo.)
“It is from the work and the inviolate integrity of such minds — from the intransigent innovators — that all of mankind’s knowledge and achievements have come. (See The Fountainhead.) It is to such minds that mankind owes its survival. (See Atlas Shrugged.)” — Ayn Rand, “What Is Capitalism?,” Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal
“[If] freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” George Washington
The totalitarian left, whether socialists, communists, or fascists pretending to be anti-fascist, is coming closer to power in the United States today. If Joe Biden wins in November and the democrat party takes the Senate and keeps the House, a laundry list of items will be immediately on the agenda:
- Eliminating the filibuster. Sen. Schumer has already stated eliminating it is on the table. This will turn the Senate into the House without any need for consensus. and provide the opportunity for all kinds of mischief, including the following.
- Giving citizenship to around 20 million people who have entered the country illegally, after blocking all President Trump’s attempts to fix the issue over his first term.
- Packing the Supreme Court by adding additional seats.
“Hate speech” is a term used by fascists, socialists, communists and other authoritarians to shut people up – when they can’t win an argument that involves liberty vs control, they want people to be shutdown and shut up. It is a slippery, subjective concept that allows those defining it to silence those with whom they disagree.
Always look to see who the arbiter of what is “hate speech” and you’ll see who will benefit from it in terms of wealth and power.
Interesting, now Fauci is admitting that that public health officials lied about the effectiveness of masks to preserve supplies for first responders. Of course anyone with any common sense knew they were lying about it earlier this year. Of course, anyone with any common sense knew they were lying about it earlier this year.
TheHill: “[Fauci] also acknowledged that masks were initially not recommended to the general public so that first responders wouldn’t feel the strain of a shortage of PPE. [Fauci] explained that public health experts “were concerned the public health
community, and many people were saying this, were concerned that it was at a time when personal protective equipment, including the N95 masks and the surgical masks, were in very short supply.”
The CDC, WHO, and “officials” have been lying from the start. It is just nice (well, maybe not nice, but validating) to hear Fauci say what everyone with above a room temp IQ knew when the surgeon general and all the health officials were saying (among other things), “masks aren’t effective” and then 6-8 weeks later say they are. It wasn’t a question of new data, it was a question of self-serving lying by public officials which undoubtedly cost people their lives.
So, in short, “Fauci lied, people died.”
One wonders how much they were they also lying about in the Coronavirus Task Force meetings to the VP, President etc?
Who orchestrated this lie? Will there be hearings?
Why did the CDC and others lie about it? Why politicize it by lying?
How about all these people trying to “raise awareness” actually DO something instead of “advocating” for someone else to do something? Does anyone really think that there are more than 50 people in the USA who are not “aware” and need to have their “awareness raised”? Stop “advocating” and do something positive yourself. Go build a house for people with Habit for Humanity. Go get a job and work and then donate the proceeds to the people who need it. Go plant a garden (Mike Bloomberg says it is easy) and donate the food you grow to people who need it. Go buy a gun and protect people. Go help clean up stores and property damaged by riots. Go back to school, get an MD and help people in need with their medical needs. Get a JD and represent these people in court. Go to the police academy and become an officer so you can do it right. Get an accounting degree, engineering or something like that and use it to help. People need to get off their behinds and out from behind the keyboard, off instagram, Facebook, twitter etc, and actually do something instead of sitting around demanding someone else do something.
Stop accepting that more horrendous incidents like “George Floyd” will happen, get out from behind the keyboard and do something. Stop senseless death like that by taking action, accepting the challenge and fixing things instead of expecting “someone else” to do so.
APPLE’s Tim Cook: “Do we want our nation to be secure? Of course. No one should have to decide between privacy or security. We should be smart enough to do both. Both of these things are essentially part of the Constitution.”
“I want to be absolutely clear that we have never worked with any government agency from any country to create a backdoor in any of our products or services. We have also never allowed access to our servers. And we never will.” “None of us should accept that the government or a company or anybody should have access to all of our private information. This is a basic human right. We all have a right to privacy. We shouldn’t give it up. We shouldn’t give in to scare-mongering.”
Tim Cook, Apple CEO, September 2014 and 2015
