The push to get people to receive a vaccine injection has entered the bizarre realm. Simple recommendations that individuals should make as informed a decision as they can don't even appear to be considered. Instead, the messaging is very blunt, very aggressive, and very authoritarian.
We see repeated variations of the following:
'Get vaccinated and get your freedom back.'
'Get the vaccine and get your life back.'
'Do all the things you love again.'
These statements are abhorrent and repugnant.
Let us consider some of the most powerful words ever written to paper. Every American should know these words and cherish them:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness."
First, our rights do not come from other people. They can't. We are not created by other people. Dr. Fauci did not create you, or anyone else. Neither did a politician. Nor do any of us actually create our own children. No human being has even the slightest idea as to how to create another human being.
So rights do not come from other people, but from our Creator. Logically deduced, these rights are an inherent part of each one of us. We are endowed with our rights, amongst which the most important are our Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness.
So your life is yours alone, what you do with it is your choice, and whatever it is that makes you happy is yours to pursue.
This is what makes you, well, you. And there has never been anyone exactly like you, nor will there ever be.
Now we can start to bring other people into the picture. Other people come in after-the-fact. And government even later still. If people in a specific area decide to form a government that is tasked to protect their Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness, it happens after the fact.
Government does not precede life itself. Government doesn't precede Liberty. It's totally illogical to think that it would or could.
So when you see the words, 'Get vaccinated and get your freedom back,' or 'Get the vaccine and get your life back,' or 'Do all the things you love again,' you're being told that your Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness are presumed to be in some kind of hostage situation.
These inherent qualities that came with you into this world are presumed to be in hands of others! And in order to get them back, you must do what others tell you to do.
Did you ever agree to hand over your Life, Liberty & Pursuit of Happiness to others?
Of course you didn't!
You couldn't even if wanted to. They are a part of you. You're always responsible. Always.
But with these bizarre messages being repeated everywhere, it's implied that your Life and Liberty are held captive by someone else, and in order to break yourself out of this hostage situation, you must pay a ransom.
We've all seen the Hollywood movies. Ransom is usually money or a yacht to some Caribbean island. There's usually a financial or economic tie to ransoms in the movies.
But this ransom is not financial or economic at all. In order to get your "life" back (can you believe they're actually saying this) you have to get an injection into your body!
An injection that once you get, you can't give back. There is no going back. There are no do-overs.
This is serious business.
We only get one body in this earthly existence. What goes into it is of prime importance!
Now, we are all free and sovereign individuals, tasked and responsible for our own decisions. If one thinks that the cost-benefit is in favor of getting the injection, then it is incumbent upon that person to do what he/she believes is right for themselves.
But this decision has nothing to do with getting one's "life" or "freedom" back. That's insane!
You already have your life, and you can do with it what you please. You can already do what makes you happy without an injection.
Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness do not hinge on getting a needle from another person.
Furthermore, when one makes the best decision for themselves (and their children) that's as far as their responsibility goes. It does not extend to anyone else. Everyone else must make what they believe to be the best decision for themselves and their own children.
To each his own.
Make your decision, and then you're going to experience the consequences; whatever they happen to be. That's what it means to be a free individual that lives in The Land of The Free.
Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness are the inborn qualities of every individual American. They should never be held hostage in America.
