If you think the Australian government is inhumane in its response to covid, have a look at what the government of Lithuania is doing.
This comes from the venerable Tom Woods who writes:
I want you to see what has happened in Lithuania.
Now you may say, “Woods, I don’t live in Lithuania.”
Maybe so. But other countries can be indicators of where a particular policy tends to lead.
Also significant: not a single word of rebuke toward Lithuania or Australia from the U.S. regime, which means they have no fundamental objection to it and would emulate these systems if they thought they could get away with it.
This thread comes from a citizen of Lithuania. This is where these Covid passes lead.
You can read Woods’ entire message here.
Oh, and there has been a dramatic RISE in covid cases and deaths in Lithuania SINCE the introduction of – get a load of this – the “Opportunity Pass.”
And why can’t the American regime get away with what the Australian and Lithuanian regimes have done? Could it perhaps have something to do with there being 400 million firearms in private hands in America?
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” – Alexsandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago
Guns are bad, people are badder, and governments are baddest – bad governments don’t like people with guns, and especially people ready to use those guns to defend their liberty, and therefore, they must control guns – meaning take them away from the people and put them in the hands of the tyrants.
