Click on the word TYRANT to see use of the word on this site in reference to those Marxist Mafiosi Who Would Rule Us.
The opportunities for tyranny in this Age of Covid have proven irresistible to those in politics who find power the ultimate aphrodisiac that Henry Kissinger once said it was.
UPDATE 9/5/21: The insatiable hunger that tyrants have for absolute power is as old as flawed humanity. More often than not, it is rationalized in the name of “progress,” “safety,” “the common good,” or just the most prevalent “People don’t know what’s good for them.” Honorable politicians and true leaders simply clear the way, not control. Those on the Left presently turning the world into one big forest fire do not fall into the latter category.
UPDATE 8/27/21: A growing demographic of totalitarian tyrants has emerged in this age of Covid, prominent among them the PM of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern and her fanatic, absolute Zero Covid approach currently strangling Australia and borrowed from Red China. all with disastrous results. As of this week, Australian officialdom is reconsidering the destructive folly of this Groundhog Day travesty.
Perhaps they might simply treat those seriously ill while allowing herd immunity to immunize the general population. Why ruin millions of lives on the pretext of saving a relative handful? That is a rhetorical question posed on the laughably flimsy assumption that most politicians really care about safety, medicine/science and the public welfare.
Ardern’s latest foray into control freakdom is locking down her entire country over ONE reported Covid case. For some places, that will mean 3 days, in others a week. As more “cases” inevitably pop up and the media scream “Fire!”, this political game of corralling whole healthy populations will continue indefinitely. Why not 8 days? A month? A year?! In between, there will be yet more (ineffectual) “vaccines” and boosters to the boosters of yet more “vaccines.” And masks. And more lockdowns. And more vaccines.
If you can exercise total control of normal, healthy, free human life for this “good reason,” why not the next time for another “good reason?” To quote her on the subject of Covid (no, it’s not Big Brother from 1984): “Dismiss anything else. We will continue to be your single source of truth.”
Orwell’s Big Brother couldn’t have stated things more honestly.
You, faceless/soulless/inconsequential citizen, are our property and will do precisely as you are told when you are told.
