The real illusion is that we have any individual rights left. From Paul Rosenberg at freemansperspective.com:
The events of the past two years have come in so fast and hot that I think most people haven’t yet digested them. Human psychology doesn’t incorporate new and difficult changes very well; it tends rather to pretend that everything will come back to normal… for sure… any minute now.
This gap between perception and acceptance makes us vulnerable. And so it’s massively in our interest to narrow it and close it. Very briefly, I’ll try to help that process along:
However much hold democracy has had in the past, it clearly hasn’t held over the past two years. Our daily lives are ordered by edicts, not by democratic processes. National, state and local potentates have locked down their populations, demanded them to cover their faces and ordered them to accept untested and sometimes dangerous medical treatments. They’ve forbidden alternative treatments. They’ve sent their policemen to breakup religious gatherings.
