It is possible we’re just weeks away from an 1861 moment; perhaps just days. One can almost feel the “lock downs” dangling precariously over our heads – again. The Face Diaper “mandates” and Sickness Kabuki about to be imposed, again.
Not because the bodies are stacking up – or even the cases! the cases! but rather because the narrative is coming apart at the seams; too many people are refusing to be injected with a “vaccine” that doesn’t work to cure them of a sickness they haven’t got and which doesn’t scare them sufficiently to make them willing to assume the risks of being injected.
As in Brisbane, Australia – where the populace is once again under house arrest – putatively on account of a handful of new “cases” but actually because the hysteria was wearing thin. In Sydney, the military will be Hut! Hut! Hutting! any who dare to show their faces.
Be assured, American gesundheitsfuhrers and sicknessleiters have the same measures in store for here. Oberkrankheitsfuhrer Biden openly talks of forcing all Americans to roll up their sleeves – or else.
Will they allow their businesses to be closed, again? Submit to being enserfed – permanently, this time? Meekly surrender their children to be injected with a known-harmful, known-ineffective drug because Authority demands it?
Many, sadly, probably will. Many, sadly, already are. Many never removed the damnable rag and are now demanding that everyone else put one on – as well as roll up their sleeves. It does not matter to these people that neither thing “works” – in terms of preventing people from becoming infected with a bug that 99.8-something percent do not die from. They have been hystericized into a kind of religious catalepsy defined by reflexive passivity to being ordered about, on the one hand and – on the other hand – teeth-gnashing, fulminating rage toward others who resent being ordered about.
It’s not North and South but it amounts to the same thing. Irreconcilable differences; two sides that despise each other. One side wishes only to be let alone, to agree to disagree and go its own way. The other side refuses to let anyone alone who does not agree.
As in 1861.
The Southern Confederacy was tired of being ordered about by the Northern states, whose numbers and resources gave them de facto dictatorial power over the Southern states. The Southern states faced the choice of submitting – or leaving, which they attempted to do. The history books – written by court stenographers of the winning side – portray what followed as a “civil war,” an illiteracy made palatable only by seeing to it (via the schools controlled by the winning side) that most people never learn what a civil war actually is.
As in parliamentarians vs. royalists in the English civil war – which was a war fought by the two sides to determine which would control the country. The Southern states merely wished to control their own country. They did not seek to control the Northern states but merely to get away from them. It is a very important distinction, hence its suppression.
Getting away – or trying to – is sometimes the only recourse and always the more decent option. Most of us understand this and practice it – to borrow a Kabuki-ite term – in ordinary life. If we find ourselves unable to get along with a person, we try to avoid them. We don’t force ourselves on them. Those who do attempt to force themselves upon others are almost universally despised. Unless they hold office. In which case they are still despised by those who are forced-upon but – by the magic of titles and votes (of some) the otherwise cretinous becomes “the law” and the people forced-upon are expected to defer to it.
Which most will do, up to a point. They will for example, pay the taxes they are told they “owe” – even though they incurred no debt, imposed no cost upon anyone else that would morally obliged them to pay compensation. They agree to do business under the terms and conditions set forth by busybodies who don’t put down their capital or do any of the work necessary to make the business a going concern but exist, parasitically, off the wealth created by others.
But a point of intolerability eventually arrives because the kinds of people who refuse to let others alone who does not agree eventually go too far. They do things like “lock down” businesses and deny thereby the basic right of people to earn their daily bread. They transgress from mere impositions – such as taxes and regulations – to degradations, such as the insistence that people wear that damnable rag. And, inevitably, they pursue atrocities – such as threatening people with violence to force them to submit to being injected with dangerous drugs. Threatening to inject their children with dangerous drugs.
There is no accommodating this. There is only resistance – or submission. One – or the other.
There is no Mason-Dixon line this time, but lines are being drawn, regardless.
Which side will you be on?
