here is one ambition at least which I ever will acknowledge, which I will not renounce but with my life – it is the ambition of delivering to my posterity those rights of freedom which I have received from my ancestors. I am not pleading the cause of an individual, but of every freeholder in England… Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those who possess it; and this I know, my Lords, that where the law ends, there tyranny begins.
— William Pitt addressing the House of Lords, January 9, 1770 
Since March 2020 Australia’s governments have been using their powers to excessively coerce, obstruct or otherwise unreasonably interfere with the life, liberty and property of the citizen. These governments are exercising emergency powers to impose measures that profoundly undermine basic principles of the rule of law, including equality before the law and the right of citizens to be protected from unpredictable and arbitrary interference with their vital interests. On the pretence of fighting a virus, draconian measures have been adopted that profoundly violate the Australian Constitution and the inalienable rights of the individual.
This is a bit different to what I normally write about and promote. It is appropriate because of the COVID-19 plandemic and resulting tyranny imposed on us in these times. The following book was edited by my good friend Augusto Zimmermann as well he has an important chapter on the virus of governmental oppression. Based on his strong faith in the Lord Jesus Christ I believe that this book is an essential read for those wishing to understand the affects on our culture and the resulting tyranny stemming from the COVID governmental overreach. Sourced from here.
On every front we are under attack. Lucifer is a like a roaring lion walking about seeking whom he can destroy because he has very little time left. He has pulled out all the stops and is using everything at his disposal.
The inhabitants of planet earth have been reduced to the status of slaves — and while this isn’t necessarily anything new, the unquestioning compliance to authority is still sickening to watch.
People are told they have no choice but to perform menial daily tasks (that they wouldn’t ordinarily chose to do) for a very limited monetary return of which as much as 70+ percent then gets handed over to the rulers on high (in the form of taxes) — THIS IS NOT FREEDOM!
The fears of the masses are also being exploited, and their thoughts and subconscious manipulated.
As a whole, and despite all of our technological advancements, the world is more primitive today than it was in decades past. Scientific discovery, for example, was once progressing at a prodigious speed, but not anymore.
Science and technical advancements depend on the empirical habit of thought, which is struggling in today’s strictly regimented society of lockdowns, forced vaccinations, climate fear-mongering, and the tactical funding of specific research with the goal not to discover something new but to merely support an established narrative.
Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW), for example, isn’t a genuine threat to the human race — but if a populace isn’t weighed down with fear and the needlessly-tough struggles of daily life then they will inevitably find the free-time and inclination to educate themselves, not in the strict academic sense, because the facts of academia are forever changing, but in a way that is akin to personal enlightenment, or a state of wakefulness to what’s really going on around them.
Keeping the masses scared and preoccupied, and therefore stupefied, keeps the few on high in power.
If you are one of those that lose sleep over CAGW and/or you were first in line to get vaccinated, then you are one of the indoctrinated — your blind compliance to the illogical bleats of authority is harming our society, and you are complicit in the erosion of the few freedoms we have left.
Hundreds of thousands are dying from the experimental COVID injections. The CDC has been removing the death reports from the VAERS database in a government cover up. Don’t tell me that something isn’t going on there. It sure is and it is all about hiding the truth from you.
