Ronald Reagan once said, “Don’t be afraid to see what you see.”
He made the statement in his farewell address on Jan. 11, 1989. He was giving advice on how U.S. foreign policy should view the former Soviet Union as it tried to shed its image as a brutal totalitarian society.
What Reagan was trying to say is that if it still looks like communism, then it probably is. Don’t pay attention to what they call it. Pay attention to how it looks, how it feels to those living under the regime.
Freedom-loving citizens of America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Israel and Canada would do well to heed Reagan’s advice and apply it today.
The label on the political party in power may say “Democrat” or “Republican” but what’s happening all around you? If you see friends and relatives in what’s supposed to be a free society being fired from their jobs – critical jobs like nurses, doctors, firefighters, cops, soldiers and truck drivers – because they won’t concede to having an unknown experimental substance injected into their bodies, then you should not hesitate to take this at face value.
Don’t brush it aside as some temporary anomaly.
You’ve heard it all by now from your friends and family.
“Don’t get so carried away.”
“Why are you always so negative?”
“Calm down. Things will change when the [fill in the party of your choice] take over in the next election.”
But things never do seem to change.
Call it what it is: Authoritarianism. Totalitarianism. Fascism. Communism. Dictatorship. You might not have the perfect adjective, but you know when something isn’t right. It doesn’t look right. It doesn’t feel right.
We are living in a critical juncture in history. A relatively small cadre of very wealthy, very powerful elites are pushing us hard to accept a new system of corporate communism, actually more like fascism, in which an insanely bloated government has teamed up with big business to force the people to accept an agenda that many feel uncomfortable with.
