Attempting to get people to “mask up” was the first test. The second was attempting to get them to roll up their sleeves for the Jab. Many failed both tests. Now comes the most important test – the final exam, so to speak. It is the attempt to get them to hand over the one thing that, so far, has probably prevented anyone – in the U.S. – from being forced, at gunpoint – to submit to masks and Jabs.
Those two latter words in italics to convey the Cliff’s Notes essential points of this exam.
They were able to get most people to put on that vile device styled a “mask” – using the cudgel of denial of service, travel or employment. But it was not universal denial as there were alternatives, including places that would serve an “unmasked” person or work with them. Or you could work (and travel) on your own. It was inconvenient to not submit to “mask” wearing – but it wasn’t all that hard, either.
And it wasn’t forced.
Similarly as regards the drugs styled “vaccines” that were pushed by the government, using the corporations and other “private” businesses that no longer are, in the sense that they are only allowed to be in business if the government says so. And how so. As such, they have become proxy agents of the government. Some – like the creators of the drugs being pushed – use this symbiotic relationship to get the government to pressure people who work for these “private” businesses to take the drugs they make and which they make a great deal of money by pushing.
But no one was actually forced to take these drugs styled “vaccines.” You could avoid the stores and restaurants that demanded it. You could quit your job, if your employer insisted upon it – and find a different job, rather than submit to it.
You could refuse.
And there was little the government – or the corporations that have become the proxies of government – could do about it. Other than refuse to “serve” (or employ) you.
These were not the times that try mens’ souls.
What will happen, though, if it should come to pass that government has all the guns? And thereby, both the means to force you to “mask up” – and to roll up your sleeve?
Certainly, it has lots of guns right now. And it has shown it is eager to use them, whenever the opportunity arises. More accurately, whenever it knows there won’t be much in the way of resistance – by people who have guns, too.
Government doesn’t like a fair fight. Neither, for that matter, do the corporations that have become proxy agents of the government, who prefer an unfair fight – against potential competition – by using the government to protect them from it, viz the way the big box chain stores were able to use the government during the “lockdowns” to close the doors of smaller, independent businesses so as to cattle-chute people through the open doors of their big box stores.
But even then, there were still alternatives – because “lockdowns,” as they were styled (the styling being psychologically significant as it was and is meant to habituate the general population to life in prison, previously the only places where “lockdowns” happened) could not be universally enforced. Or rather, the attempt wasn’t made to universally enforce them, here – probably because of the fact that there are millions of guns in the hands of private citizens, here.
This isn’t to suggest government couldn’t have overwhelmed the armed citizenry, had it actually come to that.
