Deadly Tyranny Virus

Tyranny is the Deadliest Virus

Why do men “lust” for power over other men?  Here, I refer to “men” in the classical sense, as in “mankind.”

Such men are never “content” to be masters of their “own” fate. They are doggedly “determined” to be masters over “others” as well.

This ubiquitous “human” failing is rooted in “hubris, ignorance, and insecurity.” It has also proven to be as “contagious and deadly” as any plague. “Genocides” have grown out of such “tyranny” when people tried too late to “reject” authoritarianism and the “sick” ideologies that have often accompanied it.

Some, including myself, are stupefied by how few people understand the difference between being “asked” to do something and being “ordered” with the power and force of “government” to do it.

Before COVID-19 changed “life” as we formerly knew it, we saw numerous manufactured protests over “false stories and petty grievances.” The primary complaint was usually that the offending word or action constituted “tyranny.” On its face, it was ridiculous.

Today, those same Leftist “agitators and protestors” could not have rushed fast enough to comply with orders that are the very “definition” of tyranny.  Not only have they “complied” but they’ve been among the first to “bully” those who dare to question or maybe even protest!

“How did we arrive at a place where so few Americans understand the definition and the preciousness of Liberty?”

Indeed, it appears that we are dealing with an ugly virus that is “deadlier” to some age groups and geographic areas than others, but the same politicians who have zealously “shut down” entire states have stubbornly “rejected” any good news.

They are committed to ramping up “fear” which makes it conveniently more likely that citizens will view their “extreme orders” as necessary and proper.

It took governor Jared Polis of Colorado 45 minutes into one of his numerous press conferences to mention that “9 out of 10 people” won’t require any medical treatment at all–not even an aspirin. We’re thankful this isn’t the “Bubonic” plague.  If it were, heightening public fear would hardly be necessary.

“The more that Americans dutifully comply with increasingly strict orders from politicians and government bureaucrats to shut down their lives and their livelihoods and confine themselves to their homes, the stricter and more stringent those orders continue to become.”

In Laredo, Texas, people are now required to wear a “face mask” when going out in public or “risk” a $1,000.00 fine.

New York’s Socialist Mayor Bill de Blasio didn’t just demand that “churches and synagogues” close, but he threatened to shut down one synagogue “permanently” because they defied his orders.

New York Governor, Andrew “Fredo” Cuomo is telling families to “distance” themselves from one another even “inside” their own homes.

Can “video” policing be far behind?  In some states, phone companies have made “cell phone location data” available to government officials to enable mass enforcement of “stay-at-home” orders.

Authoritarianism “breeds” even more authoritarianism and, like a “virus,” it spreads fast. We now have “social shaming” and “spying” on one’s neighbors, all with the nodding “encouragement” of the same government bureaucrats who continue to ramp up “fear and intimidation.”

The “virus of tyranny” has also spread from governor to governor, from “asks to orders, and then, to fines, punishment, and threats of imprisonment.” It hasn’t mattered how biased, subjective or extreme their “dictates and demands” have been.

For example, “pot shops and public transportation” have been deemed essential in Colorado, but traveling “alone” in one’s private vehicle or “visiting” Hobby Lobby are considered “non-essential” and therefore, are forbidden.

Is it merely a coincidence that the former two things have been “perennial favorites” of the Left while they have always “detested” the latter two things?

What sort of mentality cannot “tolerate” the rights of others to self-determination, personal freedom, and responsibility? “Take away responsibility, and you take away freedom as well.”

That’s why it’s not surprising that the first endeavor of “Socialists” is to take away responsibility from a willing public with a “velvet glove” and then take away their freedom with an “iron fist.”

Perhaps most “disturbing” is that so many Americans don’t understand that they live in the most “exceptional” country in history precisely because it was “created” to afford every citizen the greatest possible “individual freedom and personal responsibility.”

America’s “power and prosperity,” which Socialists have so desperately wanted to “blunt,” was built on exactly those values.

If Liberty isn’t held as a “moral” imperative, a virus, or anything else, can and will become the excuse” to rob us of it.

As the “virus of tyranny” continues to spread through our nation, it is not only possible but “essential” that we take care of our “Liberties” as well as our “health.”

If we don’t, we will lose both.
