    “Get out! Get out!”

When British Columbia health inspectors showed up at a crowded Vancouver BC restaurant to shut it down, the owner refused to comply. Very quickly her customers joined her in encouraging them out the door.

That is what it’s going to take to change the policies of over-reaching governments.

One additional example comes from a church in Calgary, whose pastor kicked out the police that showed up on Easter Sunday with the same intent.

It is still true in Western democracies that the people get the government we are willing to settle for, and the least level of personal sovereignty we’re willing to accept is what the kleptocratic, psychotic “leadership” class will provide us. Whatever we won’t insist upon retaining, they’ll take for themselves.

Canada’s leading the way. Time for the US citizenry to get aboard – or have we, who once stood strong for personal sovereignty, become more sheepish than our northern neighbors?

    “Get out! Get out!”

Can’t remember where I read this, but in Germany during the ascent of Hitler, when citizens pushed back, the government was forced to retreat.

And my caution is to stand up, but to be careful not to permit injury to vaccine clinic volunteers, nurses and community police officers.  They are us.   Not the source of the problem and may honestly believe that they are on the side of “good.”

The situation gets less clear with “the Brown Shirts.”

    “Get out! Get out!”

Gee VT, when I think of Canadians I don’t think civil disobedience. I think polite, friendly, generous, nonviolent and maybe naive and compliant. However, I too cheered for those two instances of rebellion from Covidiocy. Go Canada!

I think your conclusion might be a little off.

I too am very much in favor of US citizens growing a backbone and standing up to governmental and corporate overreach, in regards to Covid and a bunch of other things. But think about it: we have whole US states where those Canadian scenes could not happen today because the states’ governments have removed all those ridiculous restrictions (eg. FL, TX) or never had them in the first place (eg. SD). Then there are some other places where the restrictions are in place but the official enforcement is weak or nonexistent. The places you’re talking about include NY, NJ, CA and others. Like you, I wonder what is going on there and why the citizens don’t rebel more (there have been notable rebellions even in those places). We can always hope, though.

    Lessons learned

This reminds me of a quote by Solzinitsen (sp?) that effectively said that if they had made the police rounding people up pay a price at each roundup then the people who are expected to implement the genocide would think twice every time they left their homes and the outcome would have been different.

These two videos seem to suggest the same thing. We saw the same dynamic at work with riots. The Kenosha riots ended abruptly when that kid shot up a few of the rioters. I am not saying that was a good thing, but the riots did end.

I think the same thing happened during the Rodney King riots when a Korean store owner took up position on his store roof and was shooting people who came near his store. That effectively ended those riots as well.

I hope that things don’t have to come to that again. I consider myself to be a peaceful warrior, but a few times in my life I had to just be a warrior when the situation called for it.

I think that if we stand up now as in the videos, it will not get to the point of the other events, which was Solzinitzens’ point.

A crowded restaurant in Vancouver — great place to catch the Brazilian variant.

    “Get out! Get out!”

DaveF talks about the sense of urgency that TPTB seem to have.  Like they must establish control NOW or miss this opportunity/deadline.  What might the deadline be?  Peak oil has been discussed.

Citizen refusal to comply to surveillance mandates “to protect society.” (British move to require pub goers install a government tracking app on their smart phones.)

The explosion of real inflation.  (I’m counting 6 articles this morning reporting the appearance of real inflation affecting the working class.)

Assaulting gold price and jaw-boning against Bitcoin (a Chinese financial weapon).  As inflation appears and threatens, these escape routes must be discouraged.

    Small daily expressions of dissent…

Can and do make a big cumulative impression. Theres a conditioning effect that you can have on the world around you, it will work for you the same way that it works for TPTB. One example from my own life;

The state Im in now does not allow open carry of firearms, but before I moved here I lived in a state that allowed open carry. At one point I noticed that although open carry was the law, almost nobody carried in the open. I began making a point of going out, once per week with my gun holstered on my hip.

I made a point of walking around in public places and being seen. Over the course of about a year I noted the impact of my action upon my local area. At first people seemed surprised and uncomfortable when they saw my gun. Several police officers came over and ask me questions, specifically ‘why are you carrying a gun’? I would always politely explain that I’m a big believer in the constitution and 2nd amendment rights and I think its important to exercise those rights publicly or we risk losing them. I never had a police officer argue, in fact they all were supportive. After a while they never even questioned it, the people I dealt with everyday at the store, on the street, etc Seemed to get used to seeing me armed and were no longer surprised or afraid.

I had, to some degree, conditioned people to be comfortable seeing a man with a gun. It even worked on the police, who are of course, human at the end of the day.

In the current situation I practice this by never wearing a mask whenever I can get away with it. When I pick my son up at school ( the school is extremely strictly pro mask and distancing ), I never wear the mask. In the beginning, the ‘school marms’ ( you know the type ) would always have to confront me and say something. I never argued I just said “oh OK”, but then the next day I would show up without a mask again ( I was the only parent in the entire school who did this as far as I can tell ).

So it went from direct confrontation, which I dismissed with a smile and vague explanation. Then to dirty looks ( which was met with a smile and loud “HELLO!” ), and then, finally, to just acceptance. Now they dont even seem to notice. Ive also noted that several of the parents have started showing up without their masks too.

I have reconditioned them to accept the sight of a human being walking around in public without having his/her face covered.

There are several stores in my area that dont enforce the mask, so I always shop there and always without the mask. People notice. Sometimes, Im forced to go to Walmart for something I cant get elsewhere. They have a lady at the door checking masks. Ive begun reconditioning her…I always walk in without a mask, and she always tells me I have to put one on. Whenever we have this interaction I give her an unfriendly deadpan [ negative conditioning ]. This has happened 3 times. Ive noticed the last time she seemed hesitant to confront me. I’m guessing that soon she will pretend not to see me.

So IMO, dissent does not have to be a direct confrontation with police. It can be small daily expressions, active and mostly non-hostile. The key is persistence. Dont get discouraged or defeated if you meet with hostility or push-back. Think of it as an experiment. Your own personal psy-op to counter the larger one. Just keep at it, a little bit everyday and take notice of people’s behavior.

The people who are most easily influenced by social conditioning psy-ops [ mask Nazis ] are also most easily influenced by you. They are the weak-minded, the unaware, those who operate strictly on a ‘stimulus/response’ level. The key is to never get into an argument…words do not influence people much. Symbols, visuals, and actions are 10x more powerful. TPTB, know this thats why they have adopted the mask mandates. The mask does nothing but its a powerful visual symbol.

    “Get out! Get out!”

There is a church in a city north of the one cited in this story called GraceLife where they have been going maskless and defying gathering size limits for some time now.   The guy who ran it spent some time in jail and got out recently and went back to holding gatherings.

 

The health authorities just ordered the church shut down entirely.   So it will be interesting to see what happens here now:

 

https://calgaryherald.com/news/local-news/gracelife-church-shuttered-by-authorities-after-months-of-flouting-covid-19-rules/wcm/918f4fbe-73f9-48ab-8966-07f46b968c50

Could be some interesting optics here if the church plays this right.  Imagine video depicting members of a community cutting government locks to get into their own house of worship?  Imagine the minister being whapped with a baton as he explains God loves us all?

Or they may handle it poorly and go the “protest and assertion of political rights” route and be painted as lunatics in the press.

I know discussion of religion isn’t a thing on here for the same reasons partisan politics aren’t but I had to laugh at Jason Horsely (an Athiest) joking that the covid environment its getting to the point that Christians are the only people he can hang out with.  Everyone else, he says, is such a rabid follower of Scientism that you can’t even have a conversation.  Can’t question anything.

 

Maybe churches generally stand on the brink of finding a whole new relevance as an alternative social support system for people?

    “Get out! Get out!”

I read the UK papers a lot, as I used to live there, and I was fascinated the other day to see in The Telegraph paper 8,000 comments, almost entirely strongly negative, (I didn’t read every one) to one article (by Michael Gove) proposing the idea of domestic vaccine “passports” and asking for people’s opinions. Well, he got it in the neck. The paper’s readership is staunchly Conservative and would usually support the Conservative government. And Telegraph readers are usually very socially conservative too. But people were absolutely livid. The wrath was extraordinary. It was beautiful to see — revolution in the most unexpected place. People in the UK are waking up to “if the vaccines work, why do we have to have these passports forced on us, and if they don’t work, why are you giving them to us? And why are you trying to manipulate us into fear all the time?” It gives one hope for the sheeple. And if the sheeple turn, these things are out. I just wish Canadians would start questioning more. There is so much cowed fear here, at least in Ontario.
