America no longer the Land of the Free

 

Prisoner in own home
Drawing by Franz Kafka

We might as well be in a war. Curfew at 10 p.m. — all bars, restaurants and gyms must close or the State will send in armed goons to do it for you.

No more than ten guests at private parties, including Thanksgiving Dinner, which, weather permitting, must be held outdoors. If it’s too cold to be outside you may be permitted to go inside but the gathering must not last more than two hours.

No singing (this is a doozy!) or chanting or yelling at said parties, inside or out. And you must always wear masks of course, even inside your own home. If you fail to obey these new laws the covid enforcers will bust in your door and arrest you.

So orders the dictatorial Democrat states of New York and California, and others will follow. What is this? Eastern Europe in the time of World War II? Cowering inside our houses, obeying every order of the Third Reich as all our freedoms are taken away.

AMERICAN NAZIS

That’s what we’re dealing with here — a new regime of American Nazis, not so cleverly disguised as the misnomered Democrat Party, which is as far removed from Democracy as the Nazi Party was from humanity.

The mainstream media and Big Tech, which are controlled by Democrats, are complicit in turning the country, and in fact the world, into a herd of bullied and frightened sheep.

We might as well be at war, I said — We are at war!

The enemy is not a country of madmen with a massive army of monstrous weapons. The enemy is a microbe so tiny it can only be seen under a microscope. Try setting the sights of your M16 assault rifle on that.

The enemy is real, there’s no doubt about that — the death toll so far is as terrible as in a war.

PEEPING BORIS

But what should not be real or tolerated, or obeyed, is the State usurping all our rights and freedoms, even in the privacy of our own homes. In Britain the State has even banned sex in one’s own home. Get the hell out of our bedrooms, Boris Johnson!

So far this tyranny is being perpetrated at the state government level, but with the Democrat Party poised to take control of the nation, every citizen in every state will be subjected to this new dictatorship.

The new old leader of the unfree world wants to close the entire country for six weeks. How do you like dem apples, small business owners?

What will it take to save our civil liberties? In a word (or two) — Civil Disobedience.

Martin Luther King

The state can only exert its power over the people if the people allow it, notes Gary D. Barnett, an authority on freedom and liberty issues.

“Mass disobedience is the bane of all state control, and by refusing to obey orders and mandates, the state’s power over us can be destroyed.”

We probably all know by now that the motto of the state of New Hampshire is Live Free Or Die.

That should be the motto, and the words to live by — or die by — of the entire Un-united States of America.

Book on alienation still an ‘Angry Young Man’ classic

Written by a 24-year-old Englishman in the Reading Room of the British Museum while he was living in a sleeping bag on London’s Hampstead Heath.

Remembering Colin Wilson

Died on this day, December 5, 2013, in Cornwall. He was 82.

’The Outsider’ has been translated into more than thirty languages, including Russian and Chinese. It has never been out of print since being published on May 28, 1956.

The book sold 20,000 copies in the first two months, immediately securing Wilson’s position amongst the “Angry Young Men” of British literature, alongside the likes of Kingsley Amis and John Osborne.

“It seemed to me at the time,” Wilson said on the 50th anniversary of its publication,  “one of the most important books ever written, and fifty years later it still seems one of the most important books I’ve ever written.”

Wilson analyses the works and lives of various authors and artists, including Albert Camus, Jean-Paul Sartre, Ernest Hemingway, H.G. Wells, Franz Kafka, T.S. Eliot, Hermann Hesse, Rainer Rilke, T.E. Lawrence, and Vincent Van Gogh.

”It struck me,” Wilson wrote in his notebook two years before he wrote the book, “that I was in the position of so many of my favourite characters in fiction: Dostoevsky’s Raskolnikov, Camus’ Meursault, Rilke’s Malte Laurids Brigge — alone in my room, feeling totally cut off from the rest of society. It was not a position I relished. Yet an inner compulsion had forced me into this position of isolation. I began writing about it in my journal. And then, quite suddenly, I saw that I had the makings of a book. I turned to the back of my journal and wrote at the head of the page: ‘Notes for a book The Outsider in Literature’…”

Following the immediate success of ‘The Outsider,’ Wilson wrote more than 150 books in a variety of genres — serial killers, alien abductions, criminology and the occult. His science fiction novels such as ‘The Spider World’ trilogy and ’The Space Vampires’ gave him a loyal cult following.

But he never achieved the same success as he did with ‘The Outsider’ and literary critics never let him forget it. Wilson often spoke of “the tremendous backlash, and the attacks on me which I found pretty hard going.”
