Do you consider yourself an empowered individual? According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, to be empowered means having the knowledge, confidence, means, or ability to do things or make decisions for oneself. Did you know that when a person feels empowered fear is minimized and self-assurance increases? Have you felt empowered lately? Or do you feel like you have been intimidated into actions you don’t completely believe are necessary?
So, here’s a thought, answer honestly, if the media and government simply said nothing about the virus for two weeks, would you even know there was a virus? Why is it you can sit on a plane and rub shoulders with a masked person but a small business can’t open up even with a limited capacity? This crisis has conveniently been a windfall for the big corporations, such as Costco, Walmart and Amazon, but it hasn’t empowered small business people in the least. And for those that don’t know, small business is the heartbeat of Canada.
Here’s a fun fact, according to britannica.com, ‘Dictatorship is a form of government in which one person or a group of persons possesses absolute power without effective constitutional limitations. The term dictatorship comes from the Latin title dictator, which in the Roman Republic designated a temporary magistrate who was granted extraordinary powers in order to deal with state crisis. Dictators usually resort to force or fraud to gain despotic political power, which they maintain through the use of intimidation, terror, and the suppression of basic civil liberties.’
Does any of that sound familiar? Be honest with yourself. Wanting to feel safe and living in denial of government overreach is exactly what the German people did under Hitler’s reign. And maybe you think I’m being ridiculous and dramatic, but didn’t Hitler blame the Jewish people for all the German peoples difficulties? It is a tactic of a divisive government to select certain groups and name them villains. In Canada, our leaders call anyone who questions their response to the health crisis anti-vaxers, extreme right-wingers and covid deniers, please note, name calling is the approach of bullies. In addition to labeling protesters villains, this government also blackballs or expels from caucus, politicians who question the political and mainstream narrative. Do you know of any Fascist state or Communist country that allows free speech? Sanctioned propaganda is the only true source of information in countries like those, and funnily enough, our own government is attempting to limit free speech here under the guise of misinformation, of course. Curious.
So I suppose if the government wins their bid to limit free speech I will no longer be able to share information such as the horrific costs of lockdowns or the Corman-Drosten Review Report outlining the failures of the PCR tests. Or the impassioned plea by Dr. Pierre Kory, a well respected respiratory doctor, as he gave heartfelt testimony at the United States senate on a drug which produced fantastic results in preventing and treating the virus.
2020 has been a trial. In my own life, my dear step-mom passed away, from cancer, and due to the virus I wasn’t allowed to be with her much. Covid restrictions. And then one of my friends died last year too, she took her own life. In actuality, I don’t personally know of anyone who died from covid… there was my dog-groomers neighbour, who tragically died in a car accident but perhaps the virus was driving because that was listed as the cause of death on the death certificate. I’ve heard similar stories. Did you die of covid or with covid? The correct answer is always the virus if the person tested positive according to health officials. And have you read the link to the Corman-Drosten Review Report on the failings of the PCR tests?
Well, this is it for me, no more blogs trying to get people to flip the coin over and examine the other side, I only have one more question, and it’s important… Is your life today fabricated with fear or elevated through empowerment? Sadly, I’ve typically lived most of my life as a Chicken Little kind of person, and I’ll admit, earlier last year I was running around squawking, “The sky is falling, the sky is falling!” But then when May rolled around and I hadn’t been squished, I did some digging. It wasn’t easy. I had to leave the beaten path in order to find the kernels of truth. Now that I have, I stand and admire our fantastical sky completely unafraid and I plan for a better future. What will you do?
In order to own the light within, we must be willing to explore the shadow.
