New Year’s Resolutions 2023

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It is customary to make resolutions for the coming new year. Usually, these are promises made to oneself to do something one regrets not having done yet – or not doing something (again) one regrets having done.

Let’s do some of that.

Resolved – I will never again bow to pressure to wear a “mask” or do any other thing contrary to my will that is silly or degrading or dangerous – just because someone else told me to do it. Or because they expect me to do it. I will no longer permit the irrational beliefs of others to control my actions out of misguided courtesy or the desire to avoid affronted feelings.

Resolved – I will question authority.  I will not just obey without having received a sound answer as to why I ought to.

Resolved – I will become more independent, so as to be less dependent on centralized systems that can be used to coerce me to submit to things I would otherwise refuse to submit to, such as wearing a “mask” or taking a “vaccine” I do not wish to take for the sake of keeping a job I am desperate to keep. Reduce what you spend – so that you do not have to earn as much. Save more, so that you have a financial reserve to fall back on in the event it becomes necessary to choose between your self-respect and keeping your job.

Resolved – I will take better care of myself, so as to avoid needing to be cared for. Prudence rather than vanity is the better reason for getting in shape and eating better.

Resolved – I will try harder to live and let live.

These seem like pretty good places to start a new year that will – hopefully – turn out to be a far better year than the last three years.

This is also probably a good time to thank all of you for being here this year – and all the years prior. For your support. For your thoughts. For being my comrades-in-arms. I get up each day to do what I do because I know we are all in this together, the proper usage of that phrase.

Some good things are coming all of our way. And look for some new (and hopefully, good) things coming here as well.

Happy New Year to all!

  1. Happy Belated New Year!

    Ditto, plus wanna get some books published and with Literary Agents so I can really get them out there, since self publishing isn’t my forte.

    Cheers to a Good Year!

  2. Happy New Year, Eric!

    “I will become more independent, so as to be less dependent on centralized systems that can be used to coerce me to submit to things I would otherwise refuse to submit to, such as wearing a “mask” or taking a ‘vaccine’…”

    Boy, am I mired in this right now. Homesteading has so far kicked my ass, I will confess. But my resolve is strong, and I will see through this quest.

    I have even greater respect for our pioneering ancestors. Holy Christ. Their conquests were miraculous, magnificent and laudable.

  3. The new year ought to be very interesting. I am far to realistic to say happy when I damn well know what is going down. Call me party pooper. But I plan on lampooning the insanity of our culture while it augers in.

    I resolve not to worry about my own personal carbon emissions. I know that CO2 is on 3.618% of the global warming effect, and man made CO2 only 3.225% of that, so man made warming from CO2 is:

    3.618% x 3.225% = 0.03618 x 0.0325 = 0.001166805 = 0.117%


    So my resolution is not to worry about CO2, when CO2 is only 0.117% for all 8 billion people, and when rounded to the nearest integer it is zero (i.e. no measurable effect).

    This year when I breathe or fart I will not be thinking I am destroying the planet with my CO2 or CH4.

  4. Happy New Year Eric.
    I’m very thankful for your writing and enjoyed your experiences this month. I love the video rants.
    Thank you and best wishes for all the contributors in the comments, it educates me.
    Even you Anon1. Reading the same thing 10 times makes it stick! 🙂

  5. The New Year is a baby, weak, frail, needs lots of nourishment from Mother Nature. The New Year won’t be happy until you make it happy. I’ll drink to that.

    Let’s hope it all works out.

    What do you mean ‘we’, white man?

    The question you ask Joe Biden to answer.

    Everything about what is happening is all suspect. It is all a plan, mandates to masks to vaccines, it all sucks big time.

    People have become voodoo dolls, you get stuck with pins every three or six months.

    If you live in Ukraine, you get stuck multiple times every hour.

    The voodoo that they do just plain sucks anymore.

    Don’t has to be a rocket surgeon to figure it out.

    I see cracks in the economy.

    Three years ago, all I saw for change were new pennies. Older pennies with 95 percent copper in them were disappearing. Drove to the beer store to buy beer, I forked over the money, the total was x dollars plus some change, the change received had four pennies in the mix. One was a Canadian penny. the checkout lady asked if I wanted the Canadian penny, I said sure, why not, it’s a penny.

    After seeing the year the penny was struck and minted, I was kind of surprised. It was 1945, the King of England, George the VI, was on the penny.

    Worth 30 dollars in mint state.

    People are spending old pennies to buy booze.

    Maybe just a coincidence, but I don’t think so.

  6. Happy new year everyone!
    Re: “Resolved – I will never again bow to pressure to wear a “mask”
    Went to the doctor Thurs for a sinus infection. Lady at the desk says ‘you have to wear a mask” Me: No I won’t. She did nothing.
    The lady that pre-checked me into the doctors office “you have to wear a mask in here, hospitals orders” Me: no I will not. she did nothing.
    Doc comes in wearing a mask. He says nothing, but I say “when are you going to stop playing the game doc?” He said nothing. I got my antibiotics and I left.

      • Here in Nova Scotia the white coats are still all in on this scam. The owner of landry auto group in Berwick was at out patients for treatment from side effects of the snake oil potion, when a hospital staff member approached another person in the waiting room and informed him he must leave the premises due to his lack of a mask. His response was priceless, you better get some back up because i am not leaving for you. He stayed and nothing was done. Happy new Year and we are in this together.

    • Chris,
      I tell them “I can’t wear one”, and I can’t. It’s against my moral convictions. I could no more wear one than I could beat a child. Haven’t been turned away, yet.

  7. Happy New Year, Eric, and everyone here at EP Autos. Hopefully we see a MASS awakening in 2023 to what the globalists/ technocrats of the world are trying to shove down everyone’s throats (Under guise of “Protecting Public Health”, “Saaaaaaafe and convenient money”, “Saving the planet”, or whatever other excuse they concoct for their sinister agendas), before they succeed in totally implementing it. These technocrats already succeeded with COVID Lockdowns; now they’re just dreaming of MORE LOCKDOWNS, particularly CLIMATE LOCKDOWNS, and LOCKDOWNS of those who refuse the latest mRNA vaccine the Biotech industry cooks up or refuse to give up a gas powered vehicle or eating REAL MEAT.

    One other website that has been a good site to see what those charlatans are up to is Patrick Wood has been writing on Technocracy and trying to warn people about the dangers of it for years only to be smeared as a “Conspiracy theorist”. However, the past few years proved he was right all along. He’s posted articles on the COVID “vaccines”, the nonsensical and ineffective COVID mandates, the push for Transhumanism, Digital ID, and digital Vaxx Passports, the push for 15 Minute cities, etc.

  8. It’s going to be another new year, can’t complain about that.

    Can’t make New Year’s resolutions, can’t be done, so don’t make any. You eventually quit, it’s useless.

    I heard Stevie Wonder bought a self-driving Tesla, and so did Jose Feliciano. It’ll be the blind leading the blind. har

    “My pappy said, “Son, you’re gonna’ drive me to drinkin’
    If you don’t stop drivin’ that Hot Rod Lincoln.”” – Charles Ryan, Hot Rod Lincoln

    Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen performed the song the bestest.

  9. “According to an article written by former U.S. Representative Bob Barr, hidden away in the recently passed infrastructure bill, … is a measure to install vehicle kill switches into every new car, truck, and SUV sold in this country. The regulation likely won’t be enforced for five years, so maybe there’s time to do something about this.

    As we’ve seen both in this country and others recently, what constitutes “law-abiding” can change drastically overnight. For example, in September a car was pulled over in New Zealand and the occupants arrested when police discovered the trunk was full of Kentucky Fried Chicken meals. They were smuggling the fast food to customers in locked-down Auckland, against quarantine measures. Yet not too long before, delivering restaurant orders to people was considered a reputable, legal activity.”


  10. That last photo sure was a good way to put a final spin on 2022.
    So very many electrifyingly positive vibes from that image …and, the story behind it.

    While reading an article elsewhere I saw a photo of a ~brick wall, spray painted on it, “Mother, Should I Trust The Government?”

    The song:

    To which I thought:

    “Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break in pieces.” – Etienne de la Boétie

    “to thine own self be true” is a good start though.

  11. Happy New Year to you Eric and all others here!
    This site always encourages me, realizing not everyone is buying into the govco BS, and it seems like our numbers may be slowly increasing as the truth becomes more obvious each day.

    • RE: “our numbers”

      In that article about the 1980’s I posted awhile back, it referenced The Bad News Bears. On my drive back from the farm supply store I thought about how the Freedomistas of Eric’s audience, & the resistors & free thinkers everywhere, are a lot like what I remember The Bad News Bears to be.

      Not the team’s name, rather the description of the players, what we, as children & young adults thought of them, …that kind of thing.

      Ah, found it:

  12. Resolved …‘ — eric

    Five resolutions here — each of which I completely endorse.

    For myself, I would add the advice of Shakespeare’s Polonius: ‘This above all: to thine own self be true; And it must follow, as the night the day; Thou canst not then be false to any man.’

    Or any woman. And that’s going to be the theme of 2023.

  13. A happy new year, and thank you Eric, you are a Godsend.
    I would add “I would rather die than kneel”, or kill if need be. Because that is the level of dedication needed to defeat the monsters in power. Protesting won’t cut it. Voting is a waste of time.

    • “I would rather die than kneel”

      The scary part is that the elite won’t be doing the killing. Instead, they’ll just sic their “disciples” on us.
