A Thoughtful And Persuasive Rejection Of mRNA
As resistance to the "vaccine" scam widens and deepens, a
very articulate voice is added to the conversation from a place where this sort of narrow-eyed consideration might not have been expected, and which is all the more welcome and significant for that
"There is no safety for honest men but by believing all
possible evil of evil men."
CATHOLIC ARCHBISHOP CARLO MARIA VIGANÒ has recently
shared a letter he sent October 23, 2021 to Cardinal Luis F. Ladaria
S.J., Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith,
Archbishop José Gomez, President of the United States Conference of
Catholic Bishops, as well as to all the bishops of the United States of
America. Viganò presents a carefully reasoned, heavily supported
argument against the mRNA "vaccines" being pushed on the American people
and others around the world with a manic and relentless ferocity--
despite the long-standing and ever-growing evidence of their
worthlessness as remedies against C19 and of their significant adverse

Viganò's presentation in its entirety, and don't be put off by it
beginning with some discussion of a position taken by the Catholic
church in a December 21, 2020 'Note
on the morality of using some anti-Covid-19 vaccines (sic)' (which
is an addition to the Vatican's document collection known as the 'Congregation
for the Doctrine of the Faith' and which focuses on the question of
taking vaccines or "vaccines" developed with the use of tissues from
Viganò's references to the earlier 'Note' is to
distinguish his letter, the primary focus of which is
on the practical realities of the "vaccines" and the moral
considerations arising from those practical aspects themselves--
considerations which apply with equal force regardless of one's views of
the use of aborted fetal tissue in the development and manufacture of
Here is the letter:
I address you, Archbishop Gómez, as President
of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and to you,
Cardinals Ladaria and Müller, for your competence, some serious
considerations related to the so-called vaccines against Covid-19.
I believe there are some aspects of the
question that now allow for a more complete evaluation of what these
drugs are and what effects they cause; this evaluation ought to lead to
a collegial stance, in conformity with the Magisterium of the Church and
not influenced by biased information or by erroneous news spread by the
producers of these drugs or by the media.
1. Subject of the Note of the
Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith
The Note on the morality of using some
anti-Covid-19 vaccines was issued last year in the absence of
complete data on both the nature of the gene serum and its components. I
point out to you that the subject of the Note is limited to “the
moral aspects of the use of the vaccines against Covid-19 that have been
developed from cell lines derived from tissues obtained from two fetuses
that were not spontaneously aborted,”
and it states that “[w]e do not intend to judge the safety and
efficacy of these vaccines, although ethically relevant and necessary,
as this evaluation is the responsibility of biomedical researchers and
Safety and effectiveness are thus not the subject of the Note, which in
expressing its opinion about the “morality of use” therefore
does not even express its opinion about the “morality of production”
of these drugs.
2. Safety and effectiveness of the
The safety and effectiveness of individual
vaccines is determined after a period of experimentation that normally
lasts for several years. In this case, the health authorities have
decided to carry out experimentation on the entire world population, as
an exception to the usual practice of the scientific community,
international standards, and the laws of individual nations. This means
that the entire population finds itself in the condition of being
susceptible to suffering the adverse effects of the vaccine, at their
own risk, when normally experimentation is done on a voluntary basis and
carried out on a limited number of subjects, who are paid to undergo it.
I think it is clear that this is an
experimental drug that has not been approved,
but only authorized for administration by the bodies in charge; just as
I think it is evident that there are medical treatments without adverse
side-effects, even though they have been systematically boycotted by the
Health Institutions – WHO, CDC, EMA – and by mainstream media. Even if
the Church should express a moral evaluation of the different treatments
available – some of which are carried out with drugs produced with cell
lines that originated in an aborted fetus, like the vaccines – it must
be reiterated that there are effective treatments which cure patients
and allow them to develop permanent natural immune defenses, something
that the vaccines do not do. Furthermore, these treatments do not cause
serious side effects, since the drugs that are used have been licensed
Other recently developed treatments are
absolutely effective, inexpensive, and carry no danger for those who
receive them: this is the case with the plasma treatment
studied and employed with great success by the Italian doctor Giuseppe
Treatment with hyper-immune plasma was strongly
discouraged and boycotted by pharmaceutical companies and doctors
financed by them, because it does not cost anything and renders the
analogous therapy useless, which is made in laboratories with monoclonal
cells at exorbitant costs.
International standards specify that an
experimental drug cannot be authorized for distribution except in the
absence of an effective alternative treatment: this is why drug agencies
in the USA and Europe have prevented the use of hydroxychloroquine,
ivermectin, hyper-immune plasma, and other therapies with proven
effectiveness. There is no need to remind you that all of these
agencies, along with the WHO, are financed almost entirely by the
pharmaceutical companies and by foundations tied to them, and that there
is a very grave conflict of interest at the highest levels,
about which the media are culpably silent.
In expressing a moral evaluation of the vaccines, the Church cannot fail
to take these elements into consideration, since they cause a
manipulation of scientific information, on the basis of which the
judgments about their moral liceity by ecclesiastical Authority have
3. The experimental drugs are not
vaccines in the proper sense
The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith,
while not expressing its opinion on the effectiveness and safety of the
so-called vaccines, nevertheless defines them as “vaccines,” taking for
granted that they actually give immunity and protect people from active
and passive contagion. This element is disavowed by the declarations
coming from all of the world’s health authorities and from the WHO,
according to which vaccinated people can become infected and infect
others more seriously than those who are not vaccinated
and find that their immune defenses are drastically reduced if not even
A recent study confirms that the gene serum can
cause forms of acquired immuno-deficiency in those who receive it.
Therefore, the drugs that are called “vaccines” do not fall within the
official definition of a vaccine to which the CDF’s Note presumably
refers. In fact a “vaccine” is defined as a medicinal preparation aimed
at inducing the production of protective antibodies by the organism,
conferring specific resistance against a specific infectious disease
(viral, bacterial, protozoal). This definition was recently changed by
the WHO, because otherwise it would not have been able to include anti-Covid
drugs, which do not induce the production of protective antibodies and
do not confer a specific resistance against the SarsCoV-2 infectious
Furthermore, while mRNA serums are dangerous
because of the implications they have at the genetic level, the
AstraZeneca serum may be even more harmful, as recent studies show.
4. Proportionality between the costs
and benefits of the vaccines
Limiting itself to an evaluation only of the
morality of the use of the vaccines, the Congregation for the Doctrine
of the Faith does not take into account the proportionality between the
presumed benefits of the gene serum and the short-term and long-term
adverse side effects.
Worldwide, the number of deaths and grave
pathologies following vaccination is increasing exponentially:
in only nine months these vaccines have caused more deaths than all
vaccines in the last thirty years.
Not only this: in many nations – such as Israel for example
– the number of deaths after vaccination is now greater than the number
of deaths from Covid.
Having established that the drugs sold as
vaccines do not give any significant benefit and on the contrary may
cause a very high percentage of deaths or grave pathologies
even in subjects for whom Covid does not represent a threat,
I do not think that we can conclude that there is any proportionality
between the potential damages and the potential benefits.
This means therefore that there is a grave
moral obligation to refuse inoculation as a possible and proximate cause
of permanent damages
or death. In the absence of benefits, there is therefore no need to
expose oneself to the risks of its administration, but on the contrary
there is a duty to refuse it categorically.
5. New data on the presence of aborted
fetal cell lines
Revelations from Pfizer executives have
recently been released showing that the mRNA gene serums contain aborted
fetal material not only for the production of the original vaccine, but
also for its replication and production on a vast scale,
and nothing suggests that other pharmaceutical companies are an
exception. Bishop Joseph Strickland
has also expressed himself in this regard, inviting the faithful to “say
no. I’m not going to do it just because you mandate it, in that, who
knows what next crazy thing will come up.” This makes the use of
these drugs absolutely immoral, just as it is immoral and unacceptable
to use drugs that use orphaned children for experimentation.
6. Side Effects on pregnant mothers and
Another aspect to consider is the concrete
danger of grave side effects on pregnant mothers and even more serious
ones on newborn children: in the United States there have been 675
miscarriages in vaccinated mothers and in the United Kingdom 521 nursing
infants have died.
We should remember that for the so-called vaccines against Covid active
vigilance was not put into effect, but only passive vigilance, which
requires patients to report adverse cases themselves; this means that
the data on adverse effects should be multiplied at least ten times.
7. Components of the vaccines
I would like to point out to you that the
components of the gene serums are still concealed as trade secrets, even
if there are already multiple studies that have analyzed the content of
it is therefore not yet possible to completely evaluate the other
critical elements and their long-term impacts, because the
experimentation on the world population will end only in 2023/2025, and
it is not known what the effects of the newly adopted technology are at
the genetic level.
The presence of graphene in the doses that have been administered,
reported by numerous laboratories that have analyzed its content,
suggests that the forced use of so-called vaccines – together with the
systematic boycott of existing treatments of proven effectiveness
– serves the purpose of contact-tracing all vaccinated human beings
throughout the world, who will be or already are connected to the
Internet of Things
by means of a quantum link of pulsed microwave frequencies of 2.4 GHz or
higher from cell towers and satellites.
As proof that this information is not the fruit of the fantasies of some
conspiracy theorist, you should know that the European Union has chosen
two projects dedicated to technological innovation as the winners of a
competition: “The Human Brain” and “Graphene.” These two projects will
receive one billion euro each in funding over the next ten years.
I trust that Your Excellency, Archbishop Gomez,
will take into serious consideration these observations of mine – which
I have taken care to thoroughly verify with highly qualified Catholic
– together with your brothers of the US Bishops’ Conference gathered in
plenary Assembly from November 15 to 18, 2021 in Baltimore, so that the
official position of the Catholic Church in the United States on the
so-called vaccines will be revised and updated. Likewise, I ask Your
Eminence, Cardinal Ladaria, to proceed as soon as possible to the
revision of the Note of the Congregation for the Doctrine of
the Faith on the morality of certain anti-Covid-19 vaccines.
I realize that it may be extremely unpopular to
take a position against the so-called vaccines, but as Shepherds of the
flock of the Lord we have the duty to denounce the horrible crime that
is being carried out, whose goal is to create billions of chronically
ill people and to exterminate millions and millions of people, based on
the infernal ideology of the “Great Reset” formulated by the President
of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, and endorsed by institutions
and organizations around the world.
The silence of so many cardinals and bishops,
along with the inconceivable promotion of the vaccination campaign by
the Holy See, represents a form of unprecedented complicity that cannot
continue any longer. It is necessary to denounce this scandal, this
crime against humanity, this satanic action against God.
With every passing day, thousands of people are
dying or are being affected in their health by the illusion that the
so-called vaccines guarantee a solution to the pandemic emergency. The
Catholic Church has the duty before God and all of humanity to denounce
this tremendous and horrible crime with the utmost firmness, giving
clear directions and taking a stand against those who, in the name of a
pseudo-science subservient to the interests of the pharmaceutical
companies and the globalist elite, have only intentions of death. How
Joe Biden, who also defines himself as “Catholic,” could impose
vaccination on 28 million children aged 5 to 11,
is absolutely inconceivable, if only for the fact that there is
practically zero risk of them developing the SARS-CoV-2 disease. The
Holy See and the Bishops’ Conferences have the duty to express a firm
condemnation in this regard, and also in relation to the very serious
side effects that can result for children who are inoculated with the
experimental gene serum.
It is equally imperative that there be an
intervention by the US Bishops’ Conference aimed at promoting the
religious exemption and immediately revoking the bans imposed in
this regard by many Ordinaries on their priests. Similarly, all
vaccination requirements for seminarians and candidates of religious
communities must be revoked. Instead, clear directives should be given
about the dangers connected to the administration of the vaccine and its
grave moral implications.
I am certain that you will want to consider the
particular gravity of this subject, the urgency of an intervention that
is enlightened by and faithful to the teaching of the Gospel, as well as
the salus animarum that the Pastors of the Church must promote

BEFORE MY COMMENTS ON THIS POWERFUL EXPOSITION by
Archbishop Viganò, let me give a brief biographical note. Viganò
has an admirable record as a courageous truth-teller.
As related in
Wikipedia: "He is best known for having exposed two major
Vatican scandals. These were the
Vatican leaks scandal of 2012, in which he revealed
financial corruption in the Vatican, and a 2018 letter in which he

abuse allegations against former cardinal Theodore
I think Archbishop Viganò is now earning himself
some further respect with this fearless call-out of the very
high-powered "vaccine" juggernaut. He is also revealing himself as
having the wattage and integrity necessary to independently research his
subjects and come to his own well-founded conclusions, rather than
lazily or cravenly getting his views from co-opted mainstream media
sources and self-serving government propaganda.
NOW TO A FEW COMMENTS related to Viganò's letter. To
begin with, I want to encourage everyone to take special note of the
observations about damage to recipients' immune systems in section 3
(addressed by Viganò in regard to "acquired immuno-deficiency" but also
arising in the form of "antibody dependent enhancement" (ADE)) Evidence
of these deadly effects is growing rapidly (see
here, for example).
The onset of these problems was predictable from the
beginning, and WAS predicted (see
for instance). Indeed, the mRNA "vaccines" appear to be deliberately
designed to cause just this deadly effect, being likely to winnow the
population over the next few years from among those foolish enough to
have gotten injected with the stuff.
After all, those responsible COULD have produced actual
vaccines, that is, injections of dead or weakened virus, like all
successful and actually effective vaccines over the last several hundred
years (or better, let infection and the development of healthy, robust
and durable naturally-acquired immunity shut down what is, after all,
a relatively mild
disease). But they did not.
Instead, they concocted the absurd pretense of an "improved
version"-- a genetic modifier that actually causes the recipients body to produce
one of the worst toxins of the virus (the spike protein, which attacks
the body in various ways), while preventing the immune system from
developing broad-spectrum weapons against all characteristics of the
virus. This approach encourages the rise of variants while diminishing
the body's ability to fight them (and perhaps to fight even unrelated
At the same time, remember, everyone was subjected to the long-running insistence
on masking and "social distancing". Both of these insane practices
calculated to weaken immune systems (see more on that
It is hard to imagine why these things should have been
demanded unless increasing the vulnerability of the targeted populations
to disease was the goal. I realize that saying this sounds wild-eyed and
paranoid, but it is just a matter of dispassionate assessment of the
facts. Take another look at Edmund Burke's words with which this article
begins and reflect upon them.
In any event, those who have been "vaccinated" should
immediately commence a rigorous program of fitness-enhancement and
widespread, unimpeded contact with others in an effort to recover their
immune system health. They should treat anyone trying to cajole, cozen
or coerce them into letting another needle be put into their arms (or
let one be put into those of their children) as the monsters they are.
I'LL MAKE JUST ONE FURTHER COMMENT at this time: Right now
we are in a period in which the C19 scam is crumbling, thanks in large
part to the "vaccine" mandates (a step by the perps which is proving to
have been too far and too fast). The raising of voices like Archbishop
Viganò's against the madness illustrates the momentum behind that
It is hugely important that, as the power of the "pandemic"
narrative wanes in response to the "vaccine"-mandate overreach, the same
moment is used to lay bare and bring into focus for everyone, even those
thus far immersed in the Kool-Aid, the falseness of the entire C19 story
(summarized here, for
those needing a refresher). Likewise, the evil of those who have
fanned and exploited the narrative and the hysteria it engendered and
the extreme evil of those eventually discovered to have been its authors
must also be exposed and condemned.
Let us keep clear in our minds that the real disease with
which humanity has been threatened over the last 20 months is a disease
of credulity, intellectual apathy, censorship, and rank and rampant
corruption in media, science and government.
The biggest take-away from the assault upon the world's
population, liberty and the rule of law should be measured contempt for
institutional power of any kind-- and the scrubbing from the books
everywhere of "public health" authority, among other "emergency" powers.
None are legitimate and consistent with Constitutional systems (as is
explained in detail here).
It is no exaggeration to say that millions have died
unnecessarily as a result of what has been done in the name of the "dire
pandemic" by venal, usurping and sanctimonious malefactors. Many of
those millions-- most, perhaps-- died alone and in (or of) despair. What
has been done here is horrible and horrifying.
Trials and harsh punishment of those responsible would not
be out of order, and should perhaps be viewed as required by humanity as
deterrents to the next batch of
narcissistic sociopaths who decide it is their right to re-engineer
the world to suit their ambitions, fancies, fantasies or delusions.

Short takes on selected items lately in the
news, such as "reparations" for illegal immigrants, gender assignment,
quirks in last week's election reporting, and more.
THE BIDEN REGIME'S systematic attack on America has taken
another bizarre turn with the proposition of "reparation" payments to
illegal immigrants who were separated from the children they
irresponsibly brought with them when crossing the national border. The
storyline is that such separations were somehow unprecedented and
But neither of these propositions is true. People being
incarcerated pursuant to criminal charges NEVER have their children put
in the jail cell with them. The idea is insane, and to have incarcerated
the innocent children in the detention facilities with their charged
parents is what would have been legitimately tortious.
Likewise, the story that the Justice Department (sic) is
floating-- that the (originally $450,000 per adult illegal involved, now
morphing into a different, as-yet-unstated alternative figure)
"reparation" payment is a "settlement". This bs is a contrived rationale
meant to suggest that Biden & crew are protecting the rest of us from a
higher obligation if these ridiculous claims went to trial.
In fact, call me a cynic, but I suspect
that the very idea of "claims" on the matter was dreamed up by someone
in the Biden camp itself, and then proposed to the supposed "victims"...
THE ELECTIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY LAST WEEK ended in welcome
rollbacks of some of the "progressive/woke" madness taking hold of
America over the last few years, and are to be celebrated accordingly.
One less savory aspect of the voting struck me while watching coverage
last Tuesday evening, though-- the failure of officials in Fairfax
County, Virginia, in certifying absentee ballot results by the 8pm
deadline to which they are subject.
Immediately upon seeing this announced (and seeing the MSM
reporters treating it as inexplicable, and just "one of those things-- a
SNAFU, as it were" not worthy of further comment) I concluded that the
county political machine-- a classic Democrat-controlled apparatus-- was
deliberately holding back on reporting numbers. This is done in order to
discover what vote totals would need to be reported to give the Democrat
gubernatorial candidate the victory as results from elsewhere in the
state were added up.
The process is the same one we saw in November of last year
when outcomes in a half-dozen other Democrat stronghold counties (like
Wayne County, Michigan, Maricopa County, Arizona and Fulton County,
Georgia, to name a few examples) were held back until well after every
other jurisdiction had somehow managed to total and report their votes.
(See some further
Happily, in this case, the votes for Glenn Youngkin and his
companions in the race were apparently just too many to overcome by
subterfuge. Or, of course, I could be wrong in my suspicions.
But either way, I am left to wonder why this obvious
possible explanation for the Fairfax County delay was never raised or
discussed by anyone reporting on the election Tuesday evening.
IT IS A WIDELY-ARGUED PROPOSITION among C19 scam skeptics
that there is, in fact, no C19 virus at all. This is based on various
statements by the CDC and others of a failure to "isolate" that virus,
and is given support by the credulous in considering the reason for the
production of mRNA "vaccines" rather than actual vaccines created with
dead or weakened virus (something you can't do if there actually is
I can't answer the question about the existence of the
virus based on direct knowledge as to the reason for the declared
failure to isolate (though I can answer the "why mRNA contrivances"
thing by suggesting it is done because actual protection from the virus
is not the goal of the "vaccinators"...). But I CAN inject what I think
is a relevant fact into the conversation (pardon the pun).
I am 66 years old, and I have had an awful lot of the
viruses out there during those many years-- including many respiratory
viruses. Not one of those many viruses ever destroyed my sense of smell,
or did anything remotely like that. But within three days of the initial
appearances of symptoms of what was eventually determined (by subsequent
specific antibody tests) to be C19 last August, my sense of smell was
obliterated, only very slowly and fitfully returning over the months
since. (See more about all this
I place myself firmly in the camp of believers that a novel
virus has indeed been circulating over the last two years. Of course, I
also maintain (with
immense evidentiary support) that it is a largely harmless virus

FINALLY, JUST A GRIPE... I'm very weary of the appearance
of the phrase "assigned at birth" in regard to gender, one which is as
commonly used by skeptics/opponents of the "transgender" insanity as by
Just as it is intended to do by those responsible for
contriving it, the "assigned at birth" phrase suggests that some
bureaucrat more-or-less randomly picks whether a newborn will be deemed
a boy or a girl (begging the question of why "re-assignment" should not
subsequently be at the discretion of that person or his/her parents).

Not Letting This "Crisis" Go To Waste...
...an important action item opportunity.
FRIENDS, THE SPORADIC BITS OF EASING of the despotic measures to
which most of the country has been subjected this year should not be
allowed to bleed off the head of steam you probably had been developing.
The offenses happened, and they're far from over. Stay hot.
And while you are all warmed up, and while others, if
they're smart, are just as hot, I'd like you to send an email (and
Facebook post, or whatever) with the following content to everyone you
can (with a request that they pass it along, in turn):
[Name], over the last several months you've
watched as over-fed state power has been used to literally destroy
classical Western civilization and impose a new despotic paradigm. No
dissent or debate permitted-- no permission or agreement sought.
YOU KNOW where this will end up if the arrogant
state power being used to make this happen isn't radically diminished in
size, influence, resources and popular support, and exposed as an
opportunistic exploiter of legal ignorance (an ignorance which it has
been nurturing in the average mind for decades).
Those things having not yet happened, you
should be quaking in your boots-- and you probably are.
Isn't it time-- and past time-- for you to
begin helping to make those desperately-needed defensive changes take
place? There is only one way these things can happen short of a
who-knows-what we'll-end-up-with explosion of violence. I'm going to
show it to you.
When you're done with that reading, you'll know
what to do next.
BTW, REMEMBER, ALSO, THAT EVERY AMERICAN has lately been given a stark lesson in the fact
that government officials at all levels will lie to you and violate the
law without batting an eye. They will do so any time it serves their agenda, and
you don't call them out for it.
If you know anyone who has been persisting in denial on the
truth about the income tax, you know such nonsense is usually be
grounded in some version or another of, "That can't be true..." or "They
would never do something like that...". Now's the time to put a pin in
that delusional bubble.
As the C19 hoax has starkly shown, "that" certainly CAN be true, and they
certainly WOULD do something

SKEPTICISM (SOMETIMES INVOKED BY FEAR) IS TO BE
EXPECTED when you're trying to explain to someone that
everything they've been encouraged their whole lives to
believe about something as entrenched and significant as the
income tax is basically nonsense. So here's a way to help
cut through the resistance:
Ask your listener how he or she would react if
you were to show an announcement from the Commissioner of
Internal Revenue admitting that the tax doesn't apply to the
earnings of most Americans and is misapplied most of the
time because people don't understand how it works? Or how
about if you showed a ruling from the Supreme Court saying
Now you just have to explain that
you're going to show exactly those things-- but because
the state really doesn't want people to know this, these
things haven't been said quite as forthrightly as we would
all wish. It's going to take a bit more work to take these
admissions in than is sufficient for just reading a press
release. But it'll be worth the effort...

"The Public Good" Isn't Mark Zuckerberg's-- or
by Thomas L. Knapp
Facebook “whistleblower” Frances Haugen,
the Washington Post reports, has “repeatedly accused [Facebook CEO Mark]
Zuckerberg of choosing growth over the public good.” The Post‘s headline puts it
a slightly different way: “Growth over safety.”
The meaning of “growth” in this context is
pretty obvious: Zuckerberg’s company makes a lot of money, and he wants
it to make even more.
The meaning of “safety” is somewhat more
nebulous. Facebook spokeswoman Dani Lever refers to “difficult decisions
between free expressions and harmful speech, security and other issues”
before going to a place that should chill the blood of anyone listening:
“Drawing these societal lines is always better
left to elected leaders which is why we’ve spent many years advocating
for Congress to pass updated Internet regulations.”
The Post story opens with a more accurate
account of what Lever proposes:
“Late last year, Mark Zuckerberg faced a
choice: Comply with demands from Vietnam’s ruling Communist Party to
censor anti-government dissidents or risk getting knocked offline in one
of Facebook’s most lucrative Asian markets.”
Zuck decided to work for Hanoi instead of for
Facebook’s users in Vietnam. And in the US he’d be happy to work for
Congress rather than for Facebook’s American users, as long as doing so
doesn’t get in between him and his real customers (advertisers), and
perhaps even herds more of those customers his way.
Neither “the public good” nor “safety” (for
anyone or anything but the political class’s power and Facebook’s
profits, at least) enter into the equation.
Zuckerberg’s job is to grow his company’s
profits, thereby growing his and his shareholders’ wealth, full stop.
That’s what companies do. Their goal, in three words, is to “increase
One of the most effective ways of doing that,
if he can manage it, is getting governments to ensure that Facebook
faces little or no competition in its chosen marketplaces.
I'VE BEEN ENJOYING THOMAS KNAPP'S work for some time. Here, Knapp
hits, in his pleasingly concise style, on an area of concern which I think is
passing beneath the radar of too many people. The evils of censorship are well
and widely recognized, but the role played by the regulatory state in fostering
the problem is less so.
Knapp's presentation drives the point home nicely.
What is lacking in Knapp's piece is the overall
prescription-- the evisceration of the state which people like
Zuckerberg (and those at AT&T and Citi-Bank, and Coca-Cola, etc.) use to
suppress competition and control the marketplace which is your access to
goods and services.
Happily, this evisceration can be accomplished. Admittedly,
it's a challenge. This is due to the current and sought-after enhanced
control of information exchange by supporters of the totalitarian train
in Big Tech and the MSM (as outlined in Knapp's warning), and by the
conditioned resistance to certain long-hidden facts and understanding on
the part of even many in alt-media.
But those genuinely interested in pulling on that emergency
brake line should keep reading.
There is no political solution to the state...
AS SAID, AMERICANS WHO TREASURE INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY need to
face the uncomfortable fact that only the dramatic diminishment of the
power and footprint of government-- the chief tool of subjugation used
by those with designs upon the rest of us-- can avail us now. Nothing
else will do.
Unfortunately, remediation efforts undertaken in the
political arena and in the courts are virtuous, and merit our
enthusiastic support and participation... but they will fail. All such
efforts will look to the existing political and legal structure for
their implementation. In the current climate, in which the established
structures are so heavily compromised and corrupted, such reliance is
more a naive hope than a certainty.
Our efforts must focus on striking at the taproot of the
...but there IS a solution:
THE FOUNDERS AND FRAMERS prepared against this precise
need, knowing that all governments inevitably lurch toward the accretion
of power unto themselves and the corruption which accompanies all
accretions of state power. They put into place a solution ready to the
hand of individual Americans, entirely bypassing all supervision or
approval of the state.
The only requirements to implement that solution are eyes
with which to see the problem, reasoning with which to recognize the
truth and rightness of the solution, and courage, confidence and clarity
of mind enough to pull the trigger in the face of the natural and
predictable effort of the targeted rogue state to discourage doing so.

South Ossetia holds its second referendum to validate its 1991 declaration of
independence from Georgia (the first one in 1992 having gone unrecognized by the
international community). 95% of ethnic South Ossetians participated (66.2% of
the population), and the vote was 99% in favor of independence. The vote was
monitored by observers from Germany, Austria, Poland, Sweden and several other
countries. Nonetheless, most Western governments refuse to recognize this
second affirmation of the will of the people either, in part because the
government of Georgia refuses to do so.
