There are two opposing camps when talk turns to mandatory vaccine passports.
One side asserts that in unprecedented times, specifically the novel Coronavirus, new measures become necessary.
The other side of the coin; civil liberties should never be compromised. There is severe trepidation when it comes to conceding an inch to the Government.
What is the underlying message when the State requires proof by its citizens to participate in daily activities?
What happens if a sovereign American passes on vaccination?
From my vantage point, the Vaccine Passport has one psychological implication; control. Conform or suffer the consequences.
I am an individualist. I believe each American has the right to do whatever they wish so long as it is legal and does not infringe on another’s rights.
There was a time I believed in mass media. I even looked to Hollywood for what acceptable behavior was.
When I track my path, it instills hope. I went to University, received an education from a Big Ten school, and thought I knew everything.
September 11, 2001, was the beginning of my awakening. American soldiers were sent overseas to fight unnecessary wars.
Privacy was suddenly expendable, thanks in large part to the passing of The Patriot Act.
For the first time in my life, I was questioning our nation.
The War on Terror eventually reached its expiration date thanks to the growing dissent among Americans.
Those in power can only keep us in the dark so long before their true motives become uncovered.
A resurgence in domestic school shootings was next on the agenda. Media outlets pounced, and a new narrative about banning assault rifles took the airwaves by storm.
Next on the agenda; an invisible enemy by way of a virus, and suddenly, blind compliance by Americans was not only feasible but stark reality.
Much like the war on terrorism at the turn of the 21st century, ten years from now, the coronavirus pandemic will be easier to comprehend.
Past events, over time, always yield their true nature.
The winds of change have started blowing. Domestic terrorism seems to be the coming flavor of the month – again, its main purpose will be to pit Americans against Americans so the true enemy remains in the shadows.
Preparation in a volatile world is the best advice; that means fortifying your homes, amassing a plentitude of firearms, and stocking up on basic necessities.
Order out of chaos is their go-to play call, and God only knows what catastrophic event those in power have planned next.
My guess is as good as yours – but one thing I know for certain is that every ten years or so, these evildoers enact a new threat designed to keep us simple folk inundated with fear.
