It was one thing when a vaccine was made available to the masses for the covid virus, and people could choose to take it based on their personal health history, risk factors, and even religious beliefs. But, as pressure increased that has given way to an authoritarian mandate with ever-increasing reach, we can see that this mandated vaccine is just one step further down the road of authoritarianism. Doctors claim that hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Ivermectin-based treatments are effective drugs for the virus, but the US, Canada, and others have banned them. Why has the government restricted these drugs? Because the government told the pharmaceutical companies that if there were an effective treatment against the coronavirus, the companies would not be eligible for government money. So the pharmaceutical companies poured money into Washington DC, supporting lobbyists and members of Congress to declare these medications unlawful. This practice of bribing politicians is called rent-seeking. Consequently, the pharmaceutical companies received billions of dollars of free money from the government coffers, that is, taxpayers’ money.

The strict covid policies the world over have legitimized big government in the minds of people. The lockdowns and restrictions have conditioned people to embrace the idea that they are children and governments are the parents. When people blindly follow the rules regardless of common sense, they relinquish their freedom. An astonishing 58% of millennials surveyed would rather live in a socialist, communist, or fascist nation than a capitalist nation, according to the Communism Memorial Foundation’s “Annual Report on U.S. AttitudesToward Socialism.” Compare these results to a different study by Rasmussen just seven years ago when only 11% of Americans believed communism superior to our system of governance. What a shift! What is happening? The membership in the Democratic Socialists of America has swelled from 6,000 before 2016 to over 66,000 today.

We are experiencing a Marxist communist revolution. Communism is a political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society with no private property and the government controlling everything. Oligarchs are dismantling our democratic republic, and they have plans to replace it with a new system with them in charge. They call this process “The Great Reset.” These oligarchs have used the Cloward-Piven strategy to dismantle our free enterprise system. The Cloward-Piven strategy calls for generous government spending that leads to bankruptcy and the dismantling of the republic. Covid policies are meant to cause bankruptcies and growing unemployment. A growing number of people are calling for complete governmental control and progressive governance. California Governor Gavin Newsom has said, “Absolutely we see this as an opportunity to reshape the way we do business and how we govern.”

  1. Another good article. Thankfully, Tennessee has just allowed doctors to treat their patients as they see fit, with ivermectin for example if the doctor fills that is the best treatment. You would think that would be allowed automatically.
    I live in Virginia but go to Tennessee to get covid related treatment.
