One of the most common questions with regard to the crimes that have been committed during the response to Covid-19 is: “What can I do to help? What can ordinary citizens do to help get justice, restore our democratic institutions, and ensure that this never happens again?”
Regarding item #4-- I donate to a bunch of charities, 38 last year. This year, I will only donate to organizations which do not require their employees, volunteers, or clients to have taken the jab. I'm asking each what their policy is. Nobody has responded saying they require the jab. Some simply do not respond. Some reply that they don't require the jab. Of these, some are defensive, like "we don't require vax but our entire board is vaxxed." One responded that they do not require the jab, but have also decided not to accept donations from those who they know to doubt the wisdom of being jabbed.
Of the nonresponders, I don't know which decided they don't want to deal with someone like me, and which just aren't organized enough to get a response out.
Excellent! Excellent times 10, for each of your points.
Your 10 points will work, eventually. But things will continue getting worse a while longer. Hyper inflation and insane government responses are likely to accelerate the degradation. Energy and food shortages seem likely. That will drive many to the streets, inflicting violence on others in frustration or desperation.
So I suggest one more action -- prepare for the worst. Stash some food and water and medicines and other essentials. Buy guns and learn to use them. Maybe we'll work things out, and preparations won't be needed. But if you do need them, it will be too late to prepare.
Excellent e-pamphlet! Would love to put something like this into an actual printable pamphlet to leave in laundromats, on gas pumps, etc. Sometimes just reminding people of what "normal" is can be an eye opener. Just think, just a little over 2 years ago, people were living their lives maskless and mostly fearless even though all of the exact same diseases, fears, etc were all over the world. The corporate bought and paid for media should definitely have won the emmy award several times over the last couple of years for the biggest and longest science fiction propaganda campaign in world history.
Love this. True on all fronts. Great way to present it as a Wiki How hahaha. And congrats on the book & top reviews. I will be getting a hold of it for a read. Those dots I had never joined before and you have shared that knowledge. Thank you!
Excellent. I like Rob D's pamphlet idea.
Good list of books and two more for the list - maybe I should say tomes: RFK Jr.'s "The Real Anthony Fauci" and Peter and Ginger Breggin's "Covid-19 and the Global Predators: We are the Prey." I'm still wading through both with long breaks.
I also enjoyed Steve Deace's "Faucian Bargain" which is a fast read. I found Atlas' book to be repetitive and not that valuable a read after getting the gist of it. From what I've heard about the McCullough/Leake book, "The Courage to Face Covid-19: Preventing Hospitalization and Death While Battling the Bio-Pharmaceutical Complex," it sounds like a page turner because Leake is a true crime author.
Individualism v Collectivism
My country embraced authoritarianism without thought for the consequences.
Thankfully we had Senger.
Michael, wonderful! Thank you. Here is a tweet that made me think that we -who are fighting back are like the guy with the saucepan and the other is the sum total of the corrupted globalists 😉https://twitter.com/DudespostingWs/status/1539225000334467074?s=20
Number 11, stop promoting the idea that convid was a lab engineered virus.
It's as much a lie as the pangolin theory and just promotes the fear of the next scamdemic.
I think many of us thought something was badly wrong when the deeply flawed strategy of lockdowns was implemented more or less globally in March 2020. I say 'many of us' yet I felt profoundly isolated since virtually everyone around me seemed to go along with the madness. I think you, Michael, were one of the first to start articulating and rationalising the gut feelings of people like me that all this was badly wrong and I followed you on twitter from this time. For sure it was you who mainly exposed the fakery and propaganda at the heart of the CCP Wuhan lockdown policies, and I'm enormously grateful for that; it helped me keep some semblance of sanity over the past 2 years.
I think we have a long way to go: there are many unanswered COVID questions about the amount of CCP involvement and the degree of collusion with various US agencies. Maybe, like 9/11, we'll never know the ultimate truth. However, these times are sent to try us and to remind us we are human, and what is important to us as ordinary people: what we should fight for and how we should fight. The West has been too complacent for the last 30 years. Our finer feelings have been dulled by prosperity while monstrous oligarchs have grown obscenely rich and corrupted the institutions set up to protect us. This is a wake-up call, and we should recognise that.
I bought 'Snake Oil' and will happily review it once I've read it. In the meantime, thanks a lot for these guidelines and standing up and speaking the truth. You inspire people like me to do the same.
Please everyone--start suggesting titles like these for your public library! I work in one and PROMISE that it makes a difference if you ask for and request titles like this!!! Look at Broadside Books (Harper collins), Salem books, and Regnery.com for ideas! We’ve given over public libraries too. Make them more fair by reading and getting in that public square. Statistics and public demand are two biggest factors in what goes into a collection.
Great set of action points, thank you.
Unfortunately, corona virus hysteria has become a religion, and no amount of rational discourse, data presentation, or displays of normal behavior will dissuade its true believers. Expression of any opposing viewpoint just enrages them and makes them double down. These irrational, sheep-like people will be with us forever. About the best thing we can do to neutralize their power and influence is to stop voting for Democrats and Democrat policies.
Michael - I watched the ATL interview with Gigi Foster and got partway into the one with Paul F. and quit. I couldn't abide his thinking that the CCP has the best interests of its people at heart. Whaaat??!! Then I read an essay he wrote at Brownstone and didn't appreciate the way he framed some things. It doesn't make sense that he and Gigi could be co-authors of that book based on views I've heard him express. Can you enlighten or correct my perception please?
Thank you Michael. I will pass this on!
It's a good game plan but sometimes I just feel like I'm spitting in the wind
This is gentle and sweet and extremely naive.
Everything in life is power and the control of resources which comes, of course, from power. There are no *good* people to vote for. The pockets of lobbyists are the abyss all of 'em fall into, eventually.
Our power can come only from how we allocate our own resources--our purchasing power and our contributing power.
Boycotts are extremely effective and they need not be openly visible and noisy. Sometimes we need to inflict short-term pain even to those we approve of.
For example: Should we really buy your book from Amazon? We should order it from local bookstores if we can, shouldn't we, if we want to make a dent in what is at the moment an irresistible force?
Where do we bank? Do we need smartphones? Do we need to text all the time? Do we need to amuse ourselves with Wordle? Do we need to take the kids to DisneyWorld? Do we need to go to movie theatres? Everything will be available online sooner or later. (Yes, we must be allowed our small amusements; I'm not advocating for all of us moving into survivalist communities.)
Every time I suggest starting the little baby steps above, the pushback is remarkable--because no one wants inconvenience. And here we are and will stay until we change everything we do, so they will be forced to deal with us.
