With the exception of Pearl Harbor and September 11, 2001, Americans haven’t been attacked by an enemy on our personal soil. Unlike international locations in Europe throughout World War II, America has by no means been occupied by a navy power or locked down below martial legislation. We have by no means seen troopers in armored autos patrolling the streets, warning us to remain in our properties or face arrest — or worse.
Beginning in 1776, when our freedom-seeking founders wrote the Declaration of Independence1 and stood their floor from Lexington and Concord to Saratoga and Valley Forge,2 after which got here collectively to create a constitutional Republic devoted to defending particular person and minority rights,3 the United States of America has outlined and served as a beacon for liberty for folks round the world.4
This summer season, we watched troopers patrolling the streets of Sydney, Australia, with helicopters overhead blaring warnings to a shocked, locked-down folks to remain of their properties in the title of the public well being.5,6,7 We have watched a whole bunch of hundreds of individuals, younger and outdated, collect collectively repeatedly in the streets of Paris, London, Rome, Athens and Berlin.8,9,10,11,12
They are marching in opposition to authoritarianism, the sort of Orwellian authoritarianism embodied in authorities issued vaccine passports that punish residents for merely defending the proper to make a voluntary medical determination for themselves and their minor youngsters,13 a call about whether or not to be injected with a organic pharmaceutical product that may trigger severe reactions,14,15,16,17 injure,18,19,20,21 kill22,23,24 or fail to work.25,26,27,28 The indicators they carry say:
“No forced testing, no forced vaccines”
“Stop the dictatorship”
“Hands off our children”
“My body is mine”
“Big Pharma shackles freedom”
“No to the Pass of shame”
“Better to die free than live as a slave”
In what has change into a prophetic primal scream for liberty, governments are ordering the police to interrupt up the largely peaceable demonstrators29,30 flooding the large cities and small villages of western Europe, the first populations to prepare huge public protests in opposition to quaint tyranny dressed up in twenty first century garments.
The folks of Europe have been the first to face up for freedom throughout this government-declared public well being emergency as a result of they understand how tyranny begins. They know what it seems like and so they bear in mind what it appears like. They bear in mind and are declaring, “Never again.”

In America, We Have Taken Our Freedom for Granted
Most Americans residing right this moment don’t bear in mind World War II or, in the event that they do, it’s via what their mother and father or grandparents instructed them about it. World War II was not fought on American soil.
Americans went to battle in Europe to cease the slaughter of hundreds of thousands at the arms of an authoritarian fascist authorities commanding the Army of the Third Reich that killed in the title of the public well being and security,31,32 even an authoritarian communist authorities slaughtered many extra hundreds of thousands throughout a “Reign of Terror” in the Soviet Union.33
Most American youngsters right this moment will not be taught what occurred in China after World War II, when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) carried out the Great Leap Forward and the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. Those militant ideological cleaning campaigns imprisoned and killed tens of hundreds of thousands of residents as a result of they criticized or opposed authoritarian authorities insurance policies.34,35
In America, we now have taken our freedom with no consideration as a result of, whereas we now have been keen to battle to defend the freedom of others, we now have by no means been known as upon to defend it in our personal yard. Most Americans have by no means imagined we might expertise a severe menace to autonomy and freedom of thought,36,37 speech,38,39 conscience40,41 and meeting.42
So deep has been our belief in the legal guidelines and cultural values which have, for the most half, ensured elementary freedoms in our nation, that we by no means believed it might occur right here.43,44
But the final 20 months have modified all the pieces. Many Americans have begun to know that tyranny will be disguised to appear like security, at the same time as many others nonetheless can’t carry themselves to consider it.
America’s Move Toward Authoritarianism
Striking concern into the hearts and minds of the folks, the transfer towards authoritarianism in America started with authorities officers out of the blue telling us — even youngsters as younger as 2 years outdated — that we couldn’t breathe contemporary air or enter public areas with no masks overlaying our face.45,46,47,48,49
Millions of American staff judged to be “nonessential” misplaced the potential to earn a residing so they may eat and pay hire throughout “flatten the curve” lockdowns we have been instructed would solely final a couple of weeks however, as a substitute, went on for months.50,51,52 Anyone who criticized authorities narratives about the origin of SARS-CoV-2 virus53,54 or questioned social distancing restrictions was instantly publicly shamed and censored.55,56,57
Any medical doctors who tried to offer early therapy to COVID-19 sufferers by repurposing protected and efficient licensed medication and dietary dietary supplements to assist their sufferers survive the an infection58 have been additionally publicly shamed and censored.59,60
After the FDA granted Pfizer and Moderna an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)61 in December 2020 to distribute their liability-free experimental mRNA COVID-19 vaccines in the U.S.,62,63,64,65 public well being officers enlisted large companies to launch a hard-sell nationwide vaccine promoting marketing campaign focusing on all Americans over the age of 12.66,67,68,69,70,71,72,73
Anyone who requested questions or challenged the arduous promote was instantly censored on social media.74,75,76,77 State governments and employers have been inspired to threaten staff,78 particularly well being care staff and emergency responders, with lack of their jobs for refusing the vaccine.79,80,81,82 Private companies have been inspired to disclaim unvaccinated residents entry to eating places, shops and different public venues.83
By the finish of July 2021, the Department of Veteran Affairs directed all VA well being care staff to be absolutely vaccinated or lose their jobs.84 In early August, the Department of Defense introduced that every one navy service members have to be absolutely vaccinated when the FDA formally licenses a COVID-19 vaccine or lose their jobs.85
Suddenly, on August 23, 2021, the Pfizer mRNA vaccine was licensed with no public assembly of the FDA Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRPBAC) and full disclosure of the scientific information supporting licensure.86
By the finish of August, about 176 million Americans had been “fully” vaccinated, representing 53.6 % of our inhabitants of 333 million folks,87 which is the third largest in the world. And research had confirmed that the SARS-CoV-2 an infection mortality ratio (IFR) in the U.S. stays at lower than 1%.88
Federal Government Declares War on Unvaccinated Americans
But the government department of the US authorities was not completely happy. Federal well being officers had publicly set the objective of persuading 90 % of Americans to get the COVID vaccine,89 though it’s clear now that the actual objective all alongside was a one hundred pc vaccination fee: no exceptions and no questions requested.
At the starting of September 2021, the politics of persuasion gave approach to an iron-fisted method utilizing the heel of the boot of the state to attempt to membership 100 million unvaccinated Americans into submission. On September 9, 2021, the president of the United States adopted the recommendation of prime public well being officers and, in impact, declared battle on unvaccinated Americans.90,91
He scapegoated and positioned all the blame for the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on the unvaccinated, despite the fact that federal well being officers admit that absolutely vaccinated folks can nonetheless get contaminated and transmit the virus to others;92,93,94,95 and despite the fact that breakthrough COVID infections, hospitalizations and deaths in absolutely vaccinated persons are on the rise;96,97 and despite the fact that proof reveals people who’ve recovered from the an infection have stronger pure immunity than those that have been vaccinated;98 and despite the fact that officers at the World Health Organization now say that the SARS-COV-2 virus is mutating like influenza and is more likely to change into prevalent in each county — irrespective of how excessive the vaccination fee.99,100
The president instructed 100 million unvaccinated Americans that “our patience is running thin” and issued an Executive Order that each individual working for the government department of the federal authorities — greater than 2 million folks — should get absolutely vaccinated or lose their jobs.101 That order additionally utilized to about 17 million well being care professionals working in medical amenities that settle for Medicare and Medicaid.102
There is not any possibility for government department staff to get examined — the rule is get vaccinated or be fired. It is attention-grabbing that the order doesn’t apply to staff in the judicial department or legislative department, which incorporates members of and staffers in Congress.
The president additionally ordered the Department of Labor to difficulty a rule that carries penalties of $14,000 per violation to power personal firms with greater than 100 staff to get their staff absolutely vaccinated or be examined weekly. He additionally known as for all academics and college workers in all colleges to be absolutely vaccinated.103,104
The subsequent day, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, criticized the president for not going far sufficient.105 Fauci mentioned the authorities ought to give Americans no possibility however to get injected with the organic product that some describe as a vaccine, others characterize as a genetic remedy or cell disrupter organic, and others allege is a bioweapon made in a lab in China with U.S. funding.106,107,108
Then Fauci mentioned all youngsters have to be vaccinated or denied a faculty training109 and all unvaccinated folks have to be banned from getting on an airplane.110 At the similar time, a Virginia congressman launched the Safety Travel Act that may require vacationers getting on a aircraft or Amtrak prepare in the U.S. to point out proof of COVID vaccination or a adverse COVID check inside 72 hours of boarding.111
Destroying the Lives of Those Who Dissent
Today, folks in some cities are being denied entrance to eating places and shops if they will’t show they’ve been “fully” vaccinated.112 Doctors are refusing to offer medical care to the unvaccinated.113 Hollywood entertainers are celebrating the deaths of unvaccinated folks, saying they deserved to die, and are calling for the unvaccinated who get COVID to be denied admission to hospitals for therapy.114,115
Judges are separating youngsters from moms who haven’t gotten a COVID shot.116 Influential scientists are insisting lawmakers make it a hate crime for anybody to publicly criticize scientists and authorities well being officers.117
Dissenters are instructed they’re “selfish”118 and characterised as an enemy of the state119 for merely defending the human proper to knowledgeable consent to medical threat taking.120 The normalizing of the ritualistic persecution of Americans who’re refusing to surrender the proper to autonomy — which is the first and most elementary human proper — is underway. The Orwellian message is: The lifetime of any one that dissents from authorities coverage have to be systematically destroyed.
Demanding obedience, authorities well being officers characterize public well being insurance policies that segregate, discriminate and switch folks in opposition to one another as “the good.” Yet, numerous Americans instinctively know segregation and discrimination will not be good. They know that persuading a majority of residents to scapegoat a minority of residents to cowl up the failures of presidency is permitting evil to triumph.
Dissenting Americans, each vaccinated and unvaccinated, fill the ranks of each socioeconomic class, each political occasion and each faith-based group. They perceive the that means of the warning that, “The only thing necessary for triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing,” and they don’t seem to be going to face by and do nothing.
When authorities threatens to remove a person’s proper to employment, training, well being care and the potential to enter a retailer to purchase meals, enter a hospital or journey on public transportation, there is no such thing as a different phrase for it however tyranny.
Weaponizing a Virus and a Vaccine Against the People
This virus, which has a 99% survival fee, and this leaky vaccine, which fails to reliably forestall an infection and transmission in the absolutely vaccinated, has racked up a record-breaking greater than half 1,000,000 vaccine opposed occasion experiences in the U.S. alone.121 It won’t be the final virus and vaccine to be weaponized in opposition to the folks in the title of the higher good.
That is as a result of compelled vaccination is the tip of the spear in a tradition battle that has been occurring for for much longer than the 40 years that I’ve been a vaccine security and human rights activist publicly warning that this present day would come.122,123,124 It is a battle that can trigger extra struggling till sufficient of us refuse to be siloed and, as a substitute, be part of collectively to alter harmful legal guidelines that abuse the belief and good will of the folks.
Every single American, whether or not you will have been vaccinated or not, ought to cease to replicate upon what is going on in our nation. Think about what liberty means.
Imagine What Life Will Be Like in the Future
Imagine what life might be like in the future should you can’t depart your property with out being harnessed to a government-issued digital ID, which accommodates private information about your physique and your life, and is attached to an digital surveillance system that information and controls each transfer you make.
Imagine if you’re a well being care employee and your medical license is taken from you for refusing to get a government-mandated vaccine, which is a public well being coverage being carried out in Washington, D.C.,125 a metropolis the place medical doctors can now vaccinate youngsters as younger as 11 years outdated with out the information or consent of their mother and father.126
Imagine should you can’t maintain any kind of job or enter a grocery retailer to purchase meals to feed your loved ones, or enter a drug retailer, cafe, health club, faculty,127 cinema, museum, park or seashore with out displaying proof you’ve been vaccinated.
Imagine if you’re denied entrance to a health care provider’s workplace or lose your Medicare and Social Security advantages since you don’t have the vaccine passport, a suggestion made lately on nationwide tv.128
Imagine should you can’t get on a aircraft or bus to go to your youngsters or aged mother and father as a result of federal authorities officers have exercised authority over inter-state commerce and banned the unvaccinated from crossing state borders, an motion that some proponents of compelled vaccination are urging the present administration to invoke.129,130
Imagine should you can’t get a driver’s license, file your taxes, open or entry your checking account or use a bank card to make a purchase order should you fail to provide the required vaccine paperwork stamped by the authorities.
Imagine should you or your baby have already suffered a earlier severe vaccine response or have an underlying inflammatory immune dysfunction that will increase your threat for being harmed by vaccination,131,132,133 however medical doctors refuse to see you since you are unvaccinated — which is already occurring in America — and you might be denied admission to a hospital for a life-saving operation.
Forced Vaccination Was Always the End Game
If you suppose that the vaccine passport is barely about this virus and this vaccine, suppose once more. Forced vaccination was all the time the finish sport each earlier than and through this pandemic and the proof of that lies in the a long time of federal laws and federal company rule making paving the approach for what we’re experiencing right this moment.134,135,136,137,138
Right now, compelled vaccination is the quickest means to what the World Economic Forum transparently describes on its web site as “The Great Reset.”139 You, your youngsters and grandchildren are the commodity, and in the title of the higher good, you might be anticipated to obediently permit others to “reset” your lives in every kind of how with out making a sound.
The government-issued passport permitting you to perform in society is simply the first step on the slippery slope to what might be many extra necessities and restrictions in your freedom in the days, months and years to come back. The query is: Will you permit your self for use and abused by these at present holding the energy to do what they wish to do to you, or will you defend your God-given proper to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?
This pandemic of deception and incompetence has stolen from our day by day lives the peace and pleasure we should have, leaving too many people confused and paralyzed by concern, divided from our household and buddies, crippled with nervousness and despair, permitting hopelessness to rule our days.
We Can Refuse to Live in Fear and Push Back
It doesn’t must be like this. We can refuse to be psychologically manipulated so we’re unable to have interaction in rational considering and are crippled by concern. We can push again in opposition to the authoritarians taking away our freedom and attempting to divide us.
We can do it the approach that every one profitable social reform actions earlier than us have achieved it: via actively collaborating in native, state and federal authorities and by participating in nonviolent civil disobedience,140 if that turns into essential.
Instead of permitting ourselves to be separated from each other, we are able to keep linked and meet collectively in small teams in our properties and neighborhoods. We can develop private relationships with our elected officers at each stage of presidency — from our native sheriff and elected members of native faculty boards and metropolis and county councils, to our elected state and federal legislators.
If we don’t like the approach the folks we now have elected are governing, we are able to vote them out, or run for workplace ourselves and assist change the legal guidelines.
We can speak to the younger women and men serving in our group police departments and the U.S. navy to remind them of how necessary it’s to worth and shield human rights and civil liberties, in order that if they’re ever known as upon to implement authoritarian rule, they’ll make the proper alternative.
Above all, we will be self-disciplined and make rational selections that don’t result in violent confrontations, as a result of that sort of habits solely performs into the arms of these, whose final objective is to remove autonomy and extra particular person freedoms in the United States.
During the civil rights motion of the Fifties and ‘60s, the most profound statements have been made by those that sat down in the entrance of the bus, or in a chair at a segregated restaurant or different public place, and easily refused to maneuver.141
Heroes Standing Their Ground and Helping Us Through This
There are restaurant house owners in New York City who’re refusing to comply with orders directing them to discriminate in opposition to and deny service to the unvaccinated.142,143
There are veteran well being care staff on the entrance strains caring for sufferers throughout the pandemic, who’re being fired for supporting knowledgeable consent rights,144,145 and giving up their careers to face on precept. Many of them suspect that the subsequent merciless order they are going to be instructed to obey is to disclaim life-saving medical therapy to unvaccinated sufferers.
There are company CEO’s and union leaders who’re refusing to bow to political stress to require rank and file staff to get the vaccine or threat dropping their jobs.146,147
There are brave medical doctors and scientists, who’ve by no means spoken out publicly earlier than who’re risking their careers by demanding that mass vaccination insurance policies be backed up by good science;148,149 who’re difficult the authorities’s narrative that pure immunity is inferior to vaccine-acquired immunity;150 who’re criticizing the long-term security of mRNA vaccines,151 and who’re offering convincing proof that the SARS-CoV-2 virus didn’t spontaneously leap out of a bat however was genetically engineered by scientists in biohazard labs.152
There are state lawmakers, who’re listening to the folks and refusing to vote for the passage of compelled vaccination legal guidelines that perpetuate the phantasm that vaccine passports are the solely resolution to ending the pandemic.153,154
These Americans are rejecting authoritarianism. They are heroes, and they’re on the proper aspect of historical past.
They and lots of different courageous Americans are serving to us make our approach via this time of concern, oppression and struggling when the cultural values and beliefs which have assured freedom on this nice nation of ours are being examined.
Restoring the Spirit of Freedom to the Center of Our Culture
I consider we are going to come collectively and cross this check. We will act responsibly to guard our liberty. We will restore the spirit of freedom to its rightful place at the heart of our tradition.
We will do it as a result of we all know that if the state can tag, observe down and power people in opposition to their will to be injected with biologicals of identified and unknown toxicity right this moment, then there might be no restrict on which particular person freedoms the state can take away in the title of the higher good tomorrow.
You can select to be a hero wherever you reside. You can select to reject the ugly name to disgrace and punish your pals, relations, neighbors, colleagues and fellow residents for defending the human proper to autonomy and safety of bodily integrity, which is the essence of the knowledgeable consent ethic. You can select freedom over concern.
Be the one who by no means has to say you didn’t do right this moment what you can have achieved to alter tomorrow. Do it for your self, your youngsters and grandchildren, and for all the generations to come back. It’s your well being, your loved ones, your alternative. And our mission continues: No compelled vaccination. Not in America.
