Dr. Anthony S. Fauci recently noted
that we Americans tend to have an “independent spirit,” but quickly pivoted to tell
us “but now is the time to do
what you’re told.” So, do what you’re told. Period. No questions, no
In truth, Fauci needn’t have
worried. Americans have been doing what they’ve been told to do since the
“pandemic” was first declared. We have been masked up and locked down for eight
long months now. Many of us have been told our jobs aren’t “essential.” Consider
that phrase for a moment. We have stayed inside, not gone out to eat or drink,
passed up traveling, declined to have “minor” surgery or even go to our doctors
for a checkup. We have seen our kids be deprived of in-school education and their
proms and graduation ceremonies without complaining or asking for our money
back. We have postponed our weddings or scaled them back to very small
celebrations as we have been told to do. We have been deprived of seeing our parents
and grandparents in their assisted living facilities and nursing homes, as they
have been deprived of seeing us. And this has figuratively “killed” many of us,
and literally killed many of them. Which is doubly sad, because their
funeral attendance has been limited to only a handful of their closest family
Yet we’ve complied. We’ve done what
we have been told to do. Based on the large number of people I see driving alone
in their cars every day while wearing a mask, some of us apparently enjoy being
told/forced to do things by those in power. I guess that explains the
popularity of Dominatrixes. As Dennis Prager has observed, it appears more
people like being taken care of than value freedom.
King George III told the colonists
in the late 18th century to do what they were told…via the Stamp
Act, The Intolerable Acts, etc., etc. They didn’t comply with his wishes, to
the benefit of all mankind.
Hitler essentially told the German
people in the 1930s to do what they were told, much as Stalin told Russians to
do what they were told in the 1920s and into the 1950s. That’s what tyrants do.
Much to the detriment of all mankind.
Shakespeare wrote, “All the world’s
a stage, and we are merely players.” That may be true—and is okay in a divine
sense. What is not okay is to allow tyrants to make us pawns, as this deprives
us of our humanity, the rights granted to us by our Creator. Americans, of all
people, should know that…should recognize that in their marrow.
That the vast left-wing
conspiracy’s successful coup was “mostly bloodless” makes it even sadder. The
Founders would not have tolerated this. They would not have rolled over
so meekly, been so willing to obey the edicts of petty statists and faceless
bureaucrats who had nothing but contempt for them. They would not have done…and
did not do… what they were told to do.
In fact, Thomas Jefferson
declared to all the world that our rights are granted by our Creator. He is
considered by many to have been the most erudite, genteel and docile of the
Founders. Yet he also stated: “The tree of liberty
must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
Tyrants proved him right then, and they are proving him right again
Leftists, the same people who have tried to discredit Thomas Jefferson
and the rest of the Founders, have celebrated and touted Dr. Fauci as an expert
The choice is ours. We can do what Dr. Fauci tells us to do.
Or we can do as the Founders did.
