Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Quote of the Day: The Rulers

 

“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” – Voltaire

This has never been more true than this summer. We are forced to pretend COVID is deadly, that all lives do not matter, that those that founded this country – a country based on principles of equality and liberty – are scum, but that dictators and mass murderers like Mao, Lenin, and Castro are saints.

If you do not subscribe to lies you may find yourself under indictment, unemployed, and shunned.

    As someone pointed out in another blog, white people are fair game for criticism, so if Voltaire was right, just how “white supremacist” can America be?

    The countries that responded best to the coronavirus pandemic tended to be those in which the government gave the public as much information as possible and then let individuals, companies, and private organizations determine how to act. Our government did the opposite. It churned out politically skewed disinformation and tried to micromanage people’s actions.

    If so, you’ll be the first to be carted off to a reeducation camp when the new regime takes over.
