Live And Let Die

As I look around today, I have to wonder…has my philosophy been wrong all this time? Whether political, religious, or personal, I have always believed in “live and let live”. You do you, I’ll do me, and if we don’t agree, fine…we can talk about music or movies or shared life experience. Not everything has to be politics, right?

So, imagine my sadness as I reminisce about all the important issues that we’ve all been fighting for, for so long, and won. Yet now those victories seem to have evaporated, and those who used to be allies in these fights are now enemies.


Women’s rights used to be something we all could fight for. Now, however, it’s the rights of men pretending to be women that take precedent. Either victims of, or grifters for, the social hysteria that is “gender identity” are now supplanting actual women for their place in society. Women are unique and special, and different from men in the same way that men are different from women. A “Ying and Yang” type of synergy of the sexes was finally realized and codified as equality under the law, and in culture, before the end of the 20th century. But alas, I guess this was indeed not a victory, because now there is a new women’s rights movement, except it’s for men.

Stunning and Brave. The best woman in college swimming, at UPenn, beating the 2nd place by 38 seconds.

Yes, UPenn has a new women’s swimming champ, except there’s only one problem…that’s a 6 foot 7 man, baby.

And this is just one of many of these situations that are emerging. With the Olympics now giving the A-OK to this stuff, expect lots of odd bulges on the winner’s podium. I don’t think this is women’s rights, but to the former advocates for women’s rights, that opinion is hate.

Equal rights is another thing we all used to be able to fight for. People should be judged by their character, not the color of their skin, right? A long and horrible fight, including a civil war and then another 100 years of struggle, finally bore fruit, and again, equality under the law won its victory.

But not now. Now, segregated college graduations, segregated spaces, and segregated classes are becoming the norm on college campuses. As could be expected, what starts at the top rolls downhill, so now corporate D.I.E. ( Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity ) divisions spout anti-racism racism, and so do the highest levels of government and law. Even the old racism of “separate but equal” and the “one drop rule”, now seem quaint, because currently it’s all superficial melanin content and “separate and elevated”. So again, the victory, this time of equal rights, is made moot. A twice-elected black president, a majority of American entertainment billionaires being black, as well as minority over-representation in almost every avenue of society, are now somehow proof of a fundamental, systemic, foundational, institutional, and even infrastructural racism…even though statistics do not back up such ridiculous arguments.  But once more, my opinion is hate, and my former allies for equal rights, equality under the law, and a colorblind society are now my enemies.

I view every life as sacred, and I would strongly advocate for each life conceived to be allowed to breach the void of existence and become another unique and wonderful creation, capable of all things great or horrible. My life, your life, is a gift…whether we waste it or not. To never have been able to live, to think these thoughts now and convey them to you…I can’t imagine being denied these things for no fault of my own. But that said, there will always be those who advocate for a different perspective, and the law has so far agreed with their argument of “my body, my choice”. Though we agreed that certain circumstances require difficult options, now I have to agree with not just “safe, legal, and rare”, but to delivering a viable person and snuffing them out for convenience?

Say what you want about the “pro-choice” movement, the essential message was that a person should have autonomy over their own body. Now though, these same advocates for choice want the authorities to control your medical care over an experimental vaccine, that as of this moment the definition of, requirements for, and repercussions of, are unknown.  So…am I to respect their opinion about their own bodies, but not my own?  Be honest, is it about each person choosing, or is it about you choosing for everyone else?

On to another taboo subject. Born this way? Really? Are you? We all agreed on that, didn’t we? We all agreed, and fought for, the rights of people to love who they want and enjoy the benefits of marriage and equal treatment, didn’t we? While politicians on both sides balked, good people of all backgrounds agreed that people were who they were, born into their identity, and they shouldn’t be persecuted or punished for it.

But now, every new sexually confused and social hysteria suffering person is lumped into this category. “Minor Attracted Persons” is a thing? Millions of young girls ace-bandaging their boobs down and pretending to be men, coincidently at the same age that peer pressure and the desire for social acceptance becomes imperative? Young boys, at the suggestion of their moms and pink-haired, leftist teachers, suddenly want to dress and act like a Disney Princess, even though no such behavior was observable before interference from people in positions of authority with an ideological bent?

No good can come from this, none. People in positions of power are taking the young in their care, breaking them, and then celebrating their brokenness as a victory for their ideology.  If people are born the way that they are, then why are so many kids deciding they are something else? This is obviously harmful and hysterical, and I don’t buy it. So those that once I could agree with, I cannot now, so they are my enemies.

Totally not social hysteria and societal pressure at work, in kids and their virtue-signaling parents. Hollywood breeds this, ask Liev Schreiber. That’s his son.

What about freedom of speech, and freedom from government persecution? Didn’t we all agree that covert agencies spying on Americans and using illegal tactics against them was bullshit? Isn’t the CIA, NSA, and the FBI the baddies? I saw all those “Jason Bourne” movies years ago, so I thought that we all agreed and were fighting for the dissolution of this kind abuse of power.

Oops, wrong again. My former allies in the fight against these evil entities are now all in for their tyranny. I now have to hear incessantly about the False Flag operation, oh sorry, I mean the Capitol Insurrection, with life-in-prison or death for the participants when it looked like this…

As opposed to the “Summer of Love” in places like Portland, Oregon…where for months attacks on federal property looked like this…

Or this…

Lies and propaganda rule the day, and those I used to find solidarity with in the fight against abuse of government power, are now committed to that same abuse against their ideological foes. They want an end to my privacy, my autonomy, and my opinion. They want to end my speech and my ability to voice it.  That makes them my enemy.

My, how things change.

Unfortunately, a large percentage of my fellow citizens now, without any self-awareness, have decided…in a religious fashion,…to turn their previous beliefs around 180 degrees. What used to be polite disagreements are now mandates, demands, and dictates. What used to be absent of leftist politics is now the embodiment of it. There is no escape, no compromise, no room for discussion. That’s not my choice, and it’s never been my philosophy. I’ve always believed in “live and let live”…but now, backed into the corner, with these stakes, I have no choice but to admit I was wrong. It’s no longer “live and let live “, but instead “live and let die”.

 ” When you were young and your heart was troubled, you used to say live and let live…you know you did. But if this ever changing world in which we live in, makes you give in and cry…say live and let die.” – The Beatles

The Zombie Citizen

 

The American Citizen is dead. What has replaced it is a mouldering, wandering corpse, animated by base thoughts and emotions and barely aware of itself or its surroundings. At best, it goes stumbling about, falling apart and drawing flies. At worst, it violently attacks the living, a mindless and hungry revenant that devours or infects all within biting distance.

The virus that plagues and transforms the citizen isn’t the one you’re thinking of. To be sure, the Virus Of Unknown Origin And Unlimited Deadliness that infects the respiratory system is a symptom, or perhaps punishment, for the true pandemic that has transmogrified the body politic to the walking dead. It has many names, and wears many masks, but one can identify it plainly. It is a sickness that no longer hides in the bloodstream, instead it is now manifest and visible. It consumes all it infects, and moves with unrelenting ruthlessness.

So why isn’t the national immune system of the citizen able to withstand or fight off this illness that leads to death? Simply put, because the body can only defend against so many assaults, and the health of the citizen must indeed be robust in order to combat them. After decades of the degradation of not just the rights of the citizen, but also even the collective knowledge of what it means to be one, no antibodies remain.

So, what is the American Citizen and why has it become the undead? Because one requires many internal organs to function, and when they become diseased there are symptoms and consequences. Defined Borders, individual sovereignty, a functioning educational system, civic knowledge, an objective media not controlled by the state or corporate entities in league with the state, a representative and legitimate government, autonomy of thought and action, a unifying history and culture, and perhaps most importantly…the rights that each citizen hold not granted by the state but by natural right, and as such are not revocable by the state are among them.

 Each one of these vital and necessary systems is now corrupted and twisted by the leftist ideological illness ravaging the citizen.  Every needed function decayed and rotten from concepts like Critical Race and Legal Theory, Identity Politics, Gender Fluidity, Antiracism racism, Victimhood, Communism, Tribalism and Balkanization, Whiteness, Scientism, and on into “ism” infinitum. 

Schools and Universities, medical professionals, federal law enforcement, intelligence agencies, entertainment and media, the military, the entire unelected and powerful network of federal and state bureaucracies, as well as legions of now globalized corporations and banking entities, now reek of this malady. Each and every one is the advocate for, punisher and enforcer for, voice of, and arm of a newly emboldened and unleashed tyrannical state. A state that knows the American Citizen is a threat to its power, and as a result has embraced and spread the contaminant. A state led by a fake leader, from a fake oval office no less.

In the movies and the video games, there’s always a small contingent of the living that courageously struggle to keep from becoming one of the undead, and they can teach us an important lesson. That once the plague is unleashed, you can never stop fighting, never rest, and never let your guard down. I guess there’s an additional, unfortunate lesson…they usually all end up zombies.
