Except Pearl Harbor and September 11, 2001, Individuals haven’t been attacked by an enemy on our personal soil. In contrast to nations in Europe throughout World Conflict II, America has by no means been occupied by a army power or locked down beneath martial legislation. Now we have by no means seen troopers in armored autos patrolling the streets, warning us to remain in our properties or face arrest — or worse.
Starting in 1776, when our freedom-seeking founders wrote the Declaration of Independence1 and stood their floor from Lexington and Harmony to Saratoga and Valley Forge,2 after which got here collectively to create a constitutional Republic devoted to defending particular person and minority rights,3 the USA of America has outlined and served as a beacon for liberty for folks around the globe.4
This summer season, we watched troopers patrolling the streets of Sydney, Australia, with helicopters overhead blaring warnings to a shocked, locked-down folks to remain of their properties within the title of the general public well being.5,6,7 Now we have watched a whole bunch of hundreds of individuals, younger and outdated, collect collectively time and again within the streets of Paris, London, Rome, Athens and Berlin.8,9,10,11,12
They’re marching in opposition to authoritarianism, the form of Orwellian authoritarianism embodied in authorities issued vaccine passports that punish residents for merely defending the best to make a voluntary medical resolution for themselves and their minor kids,13 a call about whether or not to be injected with a organic pharmaceutical product that may trigger severe reactions,14,15,16,17 injure,18,19,20,21 kill22,23,24 or fail to work.25,26,27,28 The indicators they carry say:
“No compelled testing, no compelled vaccines”
“Cease the dictatorship”
“Fingers off our kids”
“My physique is mine”
“Large Pharma shackles freedom”
“No to the Move of disgrace”
“Higher to die free than stay as a slave”
In what has develop into a prophetic primal scream for liberty, governments are ordering the police to interrupt up the largely peaceable demonstrators29,30 flooding the massive cities and small villages of western Europe, the primary populations to prepare huge public protests in opposition to quaint tyranny dressed up in twenty first century garments.
The folks of Europe have been the primary to face up for freedom throughout this government-declared public well being emergency as a result of they know the way tyranny begins. They know what it seems like and so they keep in mind what it appears like. They keep in mind and are declaring, “By no means once more.”
In America, We Have Taken Our Freedom for Granted
Most Individuals dwelling in the present day don’t keep in mind World Conflict II or, in the event that they do, it’s via what their dad and mom or grandparents instructed them about it. World Conflict II was not fought on American soil.
Individuals went to warfare in Europe to cease the slaughter of tens of millions by the hands of an authoritarian fascist authorities commanding the Military of the Third Reich that killed within the title of the general public well being and security,31,32 even an authoritarian communist authorities slaughtered many extra tens of millions throughout a “Reign of Terror” within the Soviet Union.33
Most American kids in the present day are usually not taught what occurred in China after World Conflict II, when the Chinese language Communist Celebration (CCP) carried out the Nice Leap Ahead and the Nice Proletarian Cultural Revolution. These militant ideological cleaning campaigns imprisoned and killed tens of tens of millions of residents as a result of they criticized or opposed authoritarian authorities insurance policies.34,35
In America, we now have taken our freedom without any consideration as a result of, whereas we now have been keen to struggle to defend the liberty of others, we now have by no means been referred to as upon to defend it in our personal yard. Most Individuals have by no means imagined we might expertise a severe risk to autonomy and freedom of thought,36,37 speech,38,39 conscience40,41 and meeting.42
So deep has been our belief within the legal guidelines and cultural values which have, for essentially the most half, ensured elementary freedoms in our nation, that we by no means believed it might occur right here.43,44
However the final 20 months have modified every part. Many Individuals have begun to know that tyranny will be disguised to appear like security, at the same time as many others nonetheless can not convey themselves to imagine it.
America’s Transfer Towards Authoritarianism
Placing worry into the hearts and minds of the folks, the transfer towards authoritarianism in America started with authorities officers abruptly telling us — even kids as younger as 2 years outdated — that we couldn’t breathe recent air or enter public areas and not using a masks masking our face.45,46,47,48,49
Hundreds of thousands of American employees judged to be “nonessential” misplaced the flexibility to earn a dwelling so they might eat and pay hire throughout “flatten the curve” lockdowns we have been instructed would solely final a number of weeks however, as a substitute, went on for months.50,51,52 Anybody who criticized authorities narratives in regards to the origin of SARS-CoV-2 virus53,54 or questioned social distancing restrictions was instantly publicly shamed and censored.55,56,57
Any docs who tried to offer early therapy to COVID-19 sufferers by repurposing secure and efficient licensed medication and dietary dietary supplements to assist their sufferers survive the an infection58 have been additionally publicly shamed and censored.59,60
After the FDA granted Pfizer and Moderna an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)61 in December 2020 to distribute their liability-free experimental mRNA COVID-19 vaccines within the U.S.,62,63,64,65 public well being officers enlisted large firms to launch a hard-sell nationwide vaccine promoting marketing campaign concentrating on all Individuals over the age of 12.66,67,68,69,70,71,72,73
Anybody who requested questions or challenged the exhausting promote was instantly censored on social media.74,75,76,77 State governments and employers have been inspired to threaten employees,78 particularly well being care employees and emergency responders, with lack of their jobs for refusing the vaccine.79,80,81,82 Non-public companies have been inspired to disclaim unvaccinated residents entry to eating places, shops and different public venues.83
By the top of July 2021, the Division of Veteran Affairs directed all VA well being care employees to be totally vaccinated or lose their jobs.84 In early August, the Division of Protection introduced that each one army service members have to be totally vaccinated when the FDA formally licenses a COVID-19 vaccine or lose their jobs.85
Out of the blue, on August 23, 2021, the Pfizer mRNA vaccine was licensed and not using a public assembly of the FDA Vaccines and Associated Organic Merchandise Advisory Committee (VRPBAC) and full disclosure of the scientific knowledge supporting licensure.86
By the top of August, about 176 million Individuals had been “totally” vaccinated, representing 53.6 % of our inhabitants of 333 million folks,87 which is the third largest on this planet. And research had confirmed that the SARS-CoV-2 an infection mortality ratio (IFR) within the U.S. stays at lower than 1%.88
Federal Authorities Declares Conflict on Unvaccinated Individuals
However the government department of the US authorities was not completely happy. Federal well being officers had publicly set the purpose of persuading 90 % of Individuals to get the COVID vaccine,89 though it’s clear now that the actual purpose all alongside was a 100% vaccination charge: no exceptions and no questions requested.
At first of September 2021, the politics of persuasion gave option to an iron-fisted strategy utilizing the heel of the boot of the state to attempt to membership 100 million unvaccinated Individuals into submission. On September 9, 2021, the president of the USA adopted the recommendation of high public well being officers and, in impact, declared warfare on unvaccinated Individuals.90,91
He scapegoated and positioned all of the blame for the continued COVID-19 pandemic on the unvaccinated, although federal well being officers admit that totally vaccinated folks can nonetheless get contaminated and transmit the virus to others;92,93,94,95 and although breakthrough COVID infections, hospitalizations and deaths in totally vaccinated individuals are on the rise;96,97 and although proof exhibits people who’ve recovered from the an infection have stronger pure immunity than those that have been vaccinated;98 and although officers on the World Well being Group now say that the SARS-COV-2 virus is mutating like influenza and is more likely to develop into prevalent in each county — regardless of how excessive the vaccination charge.99,100
The president instructed 100 million unvaccinated Individuals that “our endurance is operating skinny” and issued an Govt Order that each individual working for the manager department of the federal authorities — greater than 2 million folks — should get totally vaccinated or lose their jobs.101 That order additionally utilized to about 17 million well being care professionals working in medical services that settle for Medicare and Medicaid.102
There is no such thing as a possibility for government department staff to get examined — the rule is get vaccinated or be fired. It’s fascinating that the order doesn’t apply to employees within the judicial department or legislative department, which incorporates members of and staffers in Congress.
The president additionally ordered the Division of Labor to problem a rule that carries penalties of $14,000 per violation to power non-public firms with greater than 100 staff to get their employees totally vaccinated or be examined weekly. He additionally referred to as for all lecturers and faculty employees in all colleges to be totally vaccinated.103,104
The subsequent day, the director of the Nationwide Institute of Allergy and Infectious Illnesses, Dr. Anthony Fauci, criticized the president for not going far sufficient.105 Fauci mentioned the federal government ought to give Individuals no possibility however to get injected with the organic product that some describe as a vaccine, others characterize as a genetic remedy or cell disrupter organic, and others allege is a bioweapon made in a lab in China with U.S. funding.106,107,108
Then Fauci mentioned all kids have to be vaccinated or denied a faculty schooling109 and all unvaccinated folks have to be banned from getting on an airplane.110 On the similar time, a Virginia congressman launched the Security Journey Act that will require vacationers getting on a aircraft or Amtrak prepare within the U.S. to point out proof of COVID vaccination or a unfavourable COVID take a look at inside 72 hours of boarding.111
Destroying the Lives of These Who Dissent
At present, folks in some cities are being denied entrance to eating places and shops if they will’t show they’ve been “totally” vaccinated.112 Medical doctors are refusing to offer medical care to the unvaccinated.113 Hollywood entertainers are celebrating the deaths of unvaccinated folks, saying they deserved to die, and are calling for the unvaccinated who get COVID to be denied admission to hospitals for therapy.114,115
Judges are separating kids from moms who haven’t gotten a COVID shot.116 Influential scientists are insisting lawmakers make it a hate crime for anybody to publicly criticize scientists and authorities well being officers.117
Dissenters are instructed they’re “egocentric”118 and characterised as an enemy of the state119 for merely defending the human proper to knowledgeable consent to medical danger taking.120 The normalizing of the ritualistic persecution of Individuals who’re refusing to surrender the best to autonomy — which is the primary and most elementary human proper — is underway. The Orwellian message is: The lifetime of any one who dissents from authorities coverage have to be systematically destroyed.
Demanding obedience, authorities well being officers characterize public well being insurance policies that segregate, discriminate and switch folks in opposition to one another as “the nice.” But, a number of Individuals instinctively know segregation and discrimination are usually not good. They know that persuading a majority of residents to scapegoat a minority of residents to cowl up the failures of presidency is permitting evil to triumph.
Dissenting Individuals, each vaccinated and unvaccinated, fill the ranks of each socioeconomic class, each political get together and each faith-based group. They perceive the that means of the warning that, “The one factor mandatory for triumph of evil is for good males to do nothing,” and they don’t seem to be going to face by and do nothing.
When authorities threatens to remove a person’s proper to employment, schooling, well being care and the flexibility to enter a retailer to purchase meals, enter a hospital or journey on public transportation, there isn’t a different phrase for it however tyranny.
Weaponizing a Virus and a Vaccine Towards the Folks
This virus, which has a 99% survival charge, and this leaky vaccine, which fails to reliably stop an infection and transmission within the totally vaccinated, has racked up a record-breaking greater than half one million vaccine opposed occasion reviews within the U.S. alone.121 It is not going to be the final virus and vaccine to be weaponized in opposition to the folks within the title of the better good.
That’s as a result of compelled vaccination is the tip of the spear in a tradition warfare that has been occurring for for much longer than the 40 years that I’ve been a vaccine security and human rights activist publicly warning that this present day would come.122,123,124 It’s a warfare that can trigger extra struggling till sufficient of us refuse to be siloed and, as a substitute, be a part of collectively to vary harmful legal guidelines that abuse the belief and good will of the folks.
Each single American, whether or not you might have been vaccinated or not, ought to cease to replicate upon what is going on in our nation. Take into consideration what liberty means.
Think about What Life Will Be Like within the Future
Think about what life might be like sooner or later when you can not depart your house with out being harnessed to a government-issued digital ID, which comprises private details about your physique and your life, and is connected to an digital surveillance system that data and controls each transfer you make.
Think about if you’re a well being care employee and your medical license is taken from you for refusing to get a government-mandated vaccine, which is a public well being coverage being carried out in Washington, D.C.,125 a metropolis the place docs can now vaccinate kids as younger as 11 years outdated with out the data or consent of their dad and mom.126
Think about when you can not maintain any kind of job or enter a grocery retailer to purchase meals to feed your loved ones, or enter a drug retailer, cafe, fitness center, college,127 cinema, museum, park or seaside with out exhibiting proof you’ve been vaccinated.

Think about when you can not get on a aircraft or bus to go to your kids or aged dad and mom as a result of federal authorities officers have exercised authority over inter-state commerce and banned the unvaccinated from crossing state borders, an motion that some proponents of compelled vaccination are urging the present administration to invoke.129,130
Think about when you can not get a driver’s license, file your taxes, open or entry your checking account or use a bank card to make a purchase order when you fail to supply the required vaccine paperwork stamped by the federal government.
Think about when you or your little one have already suffered a earlier severe vaccine response or have an underlying inflammatory immune dysfunction that will increase your danger for being harmed by vaccination,131,132,133 however docs refuse to see you since you are unvaccinated — which is already occurring in America — and you’re denied admission to a hospital for a life-saving operation.
Pressured Vaccination Was All the time the Finish Sport
When you assume that the vaccine passport is barely about this virus and this vaccine, assume once more. Pressured vaccination was at all times the top recreation each earlier than and through this pandemic and the proof of that lies within the many years of federal laws and federal company rule making paving the best way for what we’re experiencing in the present day.134,135,136,137,138
Proper now, compelled vaccination is the quickest means to what the World Financial Discussion board transparently describes on its web site as “The Nice Reset.”139 You, your kids and grandchildren are the commodity, and within the title of the better good, you’re anticipated to obediently permit others to “reset” your lives in all types of how with out making a sound.
The federal government-issued passport permitting you to perform in society is simply step one on the slippery slope to what might be many extra necessities and restrictions in your freedom within the days, months and years to return. The query is: Will you permit your self for use and abused by these at the moment holding the facility to do what they need to do to you, or will you defend your God-given proper to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?
This pandemic of deception and incompetence has stolen from our day by day lives the peace and pleasure we should have, leaving too many people confused and paralyzed by worry, divided from our household and buddies, crippled with nervousness and despair, permitting hopelessness to rule our days.
We Can Refuse to Stay in Worry and Push Again
It doesn’t need to be like this. We will refuse to be psychologically manipulated so we’re unable to have interaction in rational pondering and are crippled by worry. We will push again in opposition to the authoritarians taking away our freedom and attempting to divide us.
We will do it the best way that each one profitable social reform actions earlier than us have finished it: via actively taking part in native, state and federal authorities and by partaking in nonviolent civil disobedience,140 if that turns into mandatory.
As a substitute of permitting ourselves to be separated from each other, we will keep related and meet collectively in small teams in our properties and neighborhoods. We will develop private relationships with our elected officers at each stage of presidency — from our native sheriff and elected members of native college boards and metropolis and county councils, to our elected state and federal legislators.
If we don’t like the best way the folks we now have elected are governing, we will vote them out, or run for workplace ourselves and assist change the legal guidelines.
We will discuss to the younger women and men serving in our group police departments and the U.S. army to remind them of how essential it’s to worth and defend human rights and civil liberties, in order that if they’re ever referred to as upon to implement authoritarian rule, they may make the best alternative.
Above all, we will be self-disciplined and make rational selections that don’t result in violent confrontations, as a result of that form of conduct solely performs into the palms of these, whose final purpose is to remove autonomy and extra particular person freedoms in the USA.
Throughout the civil rights motion of the Fifties and ‘60s, essentially the most profound statements have been made by those that sat down within the entrance of the bus, or in a chair at a segregated restaurant or different public place, and easily refused to maneuver.141
Heroes Standing Their Floor and Serving to Us By way of This
There are restaurant house owners in New York Metropolis who’re refusing to comply with orders directing them to discriminate in opposition to and deny service to the unvaccinated.142,143
There are veteran well being care employees on the entrance traces caring for sufferers through the pandemic, who’re being fired for supporting knowledgeable consent rights,144,145 and giving up their careers to face on precept. A lot of them suspect that the subsequent merciless order they are going to be instructed to obey is to disclaim life-saving medical therapy to unvaccinated sufferers.
There are company CEO’s and union leaders who’re refusing to bow to political strain to require rank and file employees to get the vaccine or danger shedding their jobs.146,147
There are brave docs and scientists, who’ve by no means spoken out publicly earlier than who’re risking their careers by demanding that mass vaccination insurance policies be backed up by good science;148,149 who’re difficult the federal government’s narrative that pure immunity is not so good as vaccine-acquired immunity;150 who’re criticizing the long-term security of mRNA vaccines,151 and who’re offering convincing proof that the SARS-CoV-2 virus didn’t spontaneously soar out of a bat however was genetically engineered by scientists in biohazard labs.152
There are state lawmakers, who’re listening to the folks and refusing to vote for the passage of compelled vaccination legal guidelines that perpetuate the phantasm that vaccine passports are the one answer to ending the pandemic.153,154
These Individuals are rejecting authoritarianism. They’re heroes, and they’re on the best aspect of historical past.
They and lots of different courageous Individuals are serving to us make our means via this time of worry, oppression and struggling when the cultural values and beliefs which have assured freedom on this nice nation of ours are being examined.
Restoring the Spirit of Freedom to the Middle of Our Tradition
I imagine we are going to come collectively and move this take a look at. We are going to act responsibly to guard our liberty. We are going to restore the spirit of freedom to its rightful place on the middle of our tradition.
We are going to do it as a result of we all know that if the state can tag, observe down and power people in opposition to their will to be injected with biologicals of recognized and unknown toxicity in the present day, then there might be no restrict on which particular person freedoms the state can take away within the title of the better good tomorrow.
You may select to be a hero wherever you reside. You may select to reject the ugly name to disgrace and punish your mates, members of the family, neighbors, colleagues and fellow residents for defending the human proper to autonomy and safety of bodily integrity, which is the essence of the knowledgeable consent ethic. You may select freedom over worry.
Be the one who by no means has to say you didn’t do in the present day what you would have finished to vary tomorrow. Do it for your self, your kids and grandchildren, and for all of the generations to return. It’s your well being, your loved ones, your alternative. And our mission continues: No compelled vaccination. Not in America.
