Speaking to UK colleagues Dr. Fauci says it’s time to “do what you’re told.” https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/11/power-hungry-fauci-tells-americans-now-time-told-video/?utm_source=Twitter&utm_campaign=websitesharingbuttons
I suppose I always knew it would come to this.
Government reserves, insists, its exclusive right to use violence against any and all who do not comply with its arbitrary laws and rules. It is the military and police that “enforce the laws” without question and generally with impunity from prosecution if violence becomes excessive.
Freedom of expression is just one more idea I was taught in school that has no real foundation in reality whenever government determines we are in a “state of emergency.” As we can now see clearly, any old excuse can be the government’s justification for declaring a state of emergency, which by definition means suspension of any and all temporary “rights” granted by the state’s constitution.
Every nation state has one, and every state uses the state emergency to suspend constitutional rights.
I have returned to my painting studio recently to put paintbrush to canvas to express whatever I wish. My work does not seem controversial, but now I cannot help but wonder how long even that form of free expression might be deemed unacceptable. It’s happened before.
I thank Mark for providing a platform for free expression. I know some of you do not like what you are exposed to here from time to time. I suggest we all take a deep breath and formulate a personal plan for when that knock on the door may be ours to answer. Stay strong, the times, they are a changin’.
