Why should we believe government and why should we comply with its dictates? From Jeff Harris at ronpaulinstitute.org:
We’re told by government and media talking heads that we’re in a war with the Covid-19 virus. The threat from said virus is supposedly so potent that famine, poverty, suicide and utter dependence on government is preferable to contracting the illness. We’re told to huddle in our homes and social distance ourselves from other humans at least six feet. Now we’re told it’s advisable to wear a mask when one is shopping for necessities like food and medicine.
Every day the news media appears to revel in upping the fear index by showing pictures of mobile clinics and morgues being erected in cities like New York. We’re shown “leaked” pictures of body bags with what appears to be corpses inside stacked up in said morgues.
I think it’s important to bear in mind that the government and media have been lying to the American people for many decades. This is a fact, not a conspiracy theory. To drive the point home our current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently joked about the fact that government agents are indoctrinated in techniques to lie, cheat and steal.
The supposed “leaked” pictures of stacked body bags serves a very useful purpose for the elites. “See there, if you don’t obey us unquestioningly you could wind up in one of those bags!” Isn’t it amazing that you NEVER see leaked pictures of dead American service men and women returning from never ending wars overseas?
