week after week, 100’s of thousands, perhaps millions of britons have poured into the streets in mass protests of lockdown tyranny.
if i were there, i’d be proud to join them.
this is the fundamental right of a free people.
and yet i would have questions.
“why is this having no effect whatsoever on policy?”
“why are we still locked down and locking down further?”
“what else must we do to reclaim our inalienable rights as humans?”
informing the answers are certain facts:
a government that fails to respond to an uprising of this size does not represent its people. it is not deriving just power from the consent of the governed.a media that fails to even report on such protests other than to gaslight them as tiny upwellings of kooks, conspiracists, and racists does not represent or serve its people.it has become the willing collaborator of tyrants.in the face of government that fails to respect them, the rights of a free people will be retained only and to the extent that such people will fight for them.there is no other alternative.

this is not a picture of a happy people. but it is also not a picture the UK state seems inclined to see.
perhaps they are too busy snogging the married ladies they work with and dreaming up new ways for VIP’s to evade restrictions “cuz, football!”?
there is no rhyme, reason, sense, or sensibility here. there never was. it’s a cowardly leader and his phalanx of flunkies pushing the same broken and discredited policies upon an unwilling populace. no one is fool enough to ignore this much data and this much social unrest. at this point, this cannot be about health policy. this is really starting to look like it’s about something else altogether…
it is perhaps time that the current prisoners of mother england took heed of the ideas that informed the separation of their one time colony:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security
such sentiments have been known to shape the course of human events…
I was there, alongside probably nearly a million other concerned citizens - families with children, young people, middle aged people, old people - from all and no political persuasions and all communities. I have never been on a protest in my life (I'm in my 50s). People desperately concerned for their non covid physical and mental health (we cannot access treatment now anything now through the sainted NHS for anything except bloody "covid" or if you get run over by a bus), children & the horrendous impact on them & their education, jobs, livelihoods, businesses; relatives still trapped under draconian prison like rules in care homes.
The media are smearing us as anti vaxxers and nutters - we are NOT 🤬
Thanks for your support El Gato - we knew you were there with us in spirit.
This whole Covid thing has been a head-scratcher from the start. Nothing "they" were doing made sense. First theory was that it was about discrediting Trump, getting rid of him. But... That failed to explain the same stuff being done throughout Europe, pretty much all western countries. It more and more appears to "be about something else altogether". Geologists, of which I am one, are famous for constructing dozens of working hypotheses from a few data points. And I have approached this issue in that way. The only things that make sense are bizarre, almost unthinkable. We, the people, need to strongly assert ourselves at this point. There is a group of some sort, multinational, increasingly aggressive in its attempt to achieve power, and it appears willing to take out a lot of folks to achieve its goals. I don't think their intentions toward us proles are at all good.
No question it's to terrorize and control the populace at this point. The NHS has collapsed, well before COVID and they can't admit this. Livelihoods are destroyed, an entire nation with PTSD. And when they do unspool, it will be "everything we did was to save you" . These "leaders" deserve nothing less than Nuremberg-type trials...BoJo, his cronies, Fauci, Biden, Ferguson, etc...
Big problem: too many seem to see these “unalienable rights” as emanating from or regulated by the government. Cats know better. These rights are Divine and those “governing” need a stern reminder. As a rule, I abhor the “easier to ask forgiveness than permission” mindset, but by golly this is the time, and don’t ask anything. Going mask-free for the last year was a daily challenge made more difficult mostly by others who were compliant. It was a big game of chicken, and I won a little every day, but had I not been the only one, the tyrants would have relaxed mandates sooner. And this was in DeSantis’ “free” FLORIDA. The only freedom we get is the freedom we take.
I need to frame that on my wall. Perhaps they think they can do this: https://youtu.be/m_MaJDK3VNE
self-evident, indeed. as always, well framed, kitty.
The response to the virus, the riots, the election oddities, January 6th, the response to vaxx injuries, the push to inject children and infants...none of it has made sense or felt within the normal range of expected behavior. Something is wrong, especially in the UK and Europe. Our distributed form of governance functions as a buttress against tyranny, but this fight will be long and hard. We must help our friends, and we must win. Failure is not an option.
Ivor Cummins posted this video on twitter yesterday. He calls it the "Best Geopolitical Documentary Ever to Explain the Why? of Coronavirus". I don't know if this is the reason why everything is so off, but ask yourself...are we crazy to think they just might mean to do us harm?
They only have power because we give it to them.
And, really, how do the jabs fit into all of this? What is their purpose...'cause it isn't health?
england breeds no more guy fawkes......
that first video is already gone.
Problem is that the many more millions of masked bedwetters cowering at home are providing the necessary consent. Freedom is very unlikely to be regained. Downer, I know.
