In The Discourse of Voluntary Servitude, Etienne de la Boétie writes:
“…who could really believe that one man alone may mistreat a hundred thousand and deprive them of their liberty? Who would credit such a report if he merely heard it, without being present to witness the event? And if this condition occurred only in distant lands and were reported to us, which one among us would not assume the tale to be imagined or invented, and not really true?”
Yet, is not that what the people of my own province of Ontario are allowing to happen? One premier is dictating who can work, and who cannot; how many may go to church; and whether a gym is open or closed.
Granted, yes, there is more than one man or woman pulling the strings in each country now under “COVID law.” But certainly the ratio of one tyrant to one-hundred-thousand citizens holds true.
As ridiculous as the situation is, it is also just as hopeful.
“Obviously there is no need of fighting to overcome this single tyrant,” continues Etienne de la Boétie, “for he is automatically defeated if the country refuses consent to its own enslavement…”
In such a spirit, I’ve just added another letter to The Corona Swipe File. I’m posting this to my regular targets (members of parliament, police chief, mayor and hospital CEO). It includes quotes from pathologist Dr. Roger Hodkinson who spoke out at a recent city council meeting. It’ll also make a good email for family, friends and colleagues.
In it, Hodkinson clearly states that mandatory masking and the government’s reaction to the pandemic is “simply outrageous” and “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.”
That’s something every bureaucrat needs to hear.Covidian Tyrants: We outnumber them 100,000 to one
