The following article appears foremost on the Ron Paul Institute (RPI) Website.
For those of us who value liberty, these past two years have been a bad dream.
It seems like we fell asleep in early 2020 and woke up in 1984!
They said that if we just put on a mask and stayed home for two weeks, we’d be able to return to normal. The two weeks came and went and instead of going back to normal they added more restrictions.
These past two years have been a story of moving goalposts and "experts" like Anthony Fauci constantly contradicting themselves.
Early on, in April of 2020, I warned in an article, "Next in Coronavirus Tyranny: Forced Vaccinations and 'Digital Certificates,'" that the ultimate goal of the "two weeks" crowd was to force vaccines and a "vaccine passport" on Americans.
My concerns were at the time written off as just another conspiracy theory.
But less than a year later that "conspiracy theory" became conspiracy fact. I'm not happy about being right on this.
The introduction of vaccine passports was from the beginning my worst nightmare.
The idea that you must "show your papers" to participate in society is a concept that is totally opposed to a free society. It is inhuman.
The history of these past two years is that the worst ideas have been adopted by force and anyone questioning those ideas has been suppressed by force.
We learned recently that Dr. Fauci and the director of the National Institutes of Health conspired to deliver a "quick and devastating take-down" of the esteemed scientists behind the Great Barrington Declaration.
Were the Great Barrington scientists horribly wrong?
Fauci and his boss couldn't have cared less.
They were not interested in a debate. Their only goal was to shut down any opposing views. That’s not science.
It’s ideology, politics, and probably self-interest.
As my son, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said on a recent Liberty Report, thousands of people died because Fauci refused to consider the proven effectiveness of natural immunity against COVID-19.
He and his colleagues were determined to deny any outpatient treatments and insisted on vaccines as the only way out.
Now, as we see the vaccines performing so poorly versus natural immunity, their whole strategy lies in tatters. Will anyone apologize to the relatives of all those who died?
When we look back at these two years, hopefully one thing that will be remembered is how the institutions of state power have all lost their credibility.
They have been exposed as frauds and worse.
In a recent massively popular Joe Rogan interview with Dr. Robert Malone — inventor of the mRNA technology that is the backbone of the "vaccines" — Malone discusses the disturbing concept of mass formation psychosis, where fear and manipulation are used to drive a society mad in the service of a group of elites with an agenda.
We saw it in Germany in the 1930s.
As Charles Mackay wrote in the 19th century about the madness of crowds, humans go insane in groups but recover one at a time.
What is to be done to defeat tyranny in 2022?
We must continue to tell the truth. The truth is winning and the liars are losing.
One by one their lies are being exposed. But it is not an easy task.
Each of us in 2022 can do a little something to promote truth. Do what you can.
The rewards are great.
