I’m seeing far too many people say they are in “opposition” to the covid tyranny while simultaneously saying they’ll lie about mask limitations and getting the vaccine.
To be brave right now is to stand up for yourself and your fellow man and say NO to mask mandates and vaccine requirements. Say no to the stores. Say no to your employer. Say no to your family members. Say no to your local government. Say no to the airlines. Suck it up if this means not getting service. If enough people refused to give their money or time to these entities, the tune would change. Believe that.
To be cowardly right now is to sheepishly whisper that you’re against all of this, but go along with it anyway. You go along with it when you lie and say you can’t wear a mask because of asthma. I tried that, felt gross, and got told by the store that they were going to make me wear a face shield ANYWAY. So I left. You go along with it when you lie and say you can’t get the vaccine OR you’re planning on forging a vaccine card. This enables the tyranny. Hello!
We need not look very far back to recall that in 1930s Germany along with many, many other examples, those who quietly complied or lied to get their immediate desires met, still wound up in the incinerators (or shot to death, etc).
Tyranny is the rule. Freedom is the exception. We need to fight for freedom always. If you do it now, yes it feels awkward. Yes it feels lonely. Yes you will be bitched at by weaker dumber people than yourself. But others will see, and they’ll follow. It happens to me all the time. My friends and family now find it easier to go maskless because they see me doing it and I hardly have any issues. Fear is a real motivator, but so is inspiration. You get inspired when you see someone do what you wish you could do. The wish becomes reality.
I really dislike 99% of people, but I will die for them to not be slaves.
