How much faith should you be putting in authority figures? If current trends are any indication, it would seem that globalists and their unwitting supporters now believe that anyone who even dares to question what we’ve been told by our so-called authority figures should be a crime. This is the surest sign that keeping your skepticism alive and well is more than necessary — even if other sheeple will “bingo” you for it.
People who think and question for themselves are publicly shamed as “crackpots” or “nitwits” that shouldn’t be taken seriously — while those who blindly believe everything they’re told pat themselves on the back for being so smart and good.
We tell dogs that they are “good” when they obey our commands, too, now don’t we?
Some mainstream media outlets have already suggested that “dissenters” ought to be put to death. Recall this past summer, when the Boston Herald contended that being an outspoken vaccine skeptic “ought to be a hanging offense.”
Or more recently, when the Health Ranger’s YouTube channel was taken down for no apparent reason at all. While Mike Adams recently reported that the Health Ranger channel had been restored, one thing remains clear: The war against “dissenters” is far from over.
Maintaining a sense of skepticism towards authority is growing more important as time trudges on; the war against reality is already here — and social media tyrants like YouTube and Facebook are leading the charge. As free speech and our other basic rights that are supposed to be protected come increasingly close to disappearing, the choice to think for yourself is more important than ever.
Writing for Waking Times, Gary Z. McGee contends, “The problem with belief in authority is that it leads to the idea that we need to give a group of people permission to control us.” And, more to the point, power often leads to corruption — especially in authority figures.
While the globalists desperately push for total subservience, maintaining a healthy amount of skepticism is of utmost importance. McGee posits that authority should be questioned first, and trusted second — if it all.
The great vaccine debate rings true here: So many people blindly believe that vaccines are 100-percent safe with no risk whatsoever, because that’s what they’ve been told to believe by so-called authority figures.
As McGee contends:
Without those who are willing to disobey, we are lost. Without them, we are left with cowardly conformists, xenophobic nationalists, complacent pacifists, dogmatic believers relying upon blind faith, and tyrannical powermongers using their power to control others. In short: we are left with magical thinking over logic and reasoning.
Social media, in particular, has become a tool to enforce the paradigm; those who do not “fit” the Leftist mold are cast out. For example, platforms like YouTube and Twitter targeted and banned (or otherwise removed) conservative-leaning users.
On college campuses, the problem of refusing to even entertain diversity in thought (and consequentially, the questioning of authority) is even worse. While conservative speakers have struggled to even host events on many college campuses nationwide, now even conservative college students may be at risk of losing their voice. At Pennsylvania State University, leftists are now demanding that conservative groups lose any and all funding.
While school administrators did push back, stating that the First Amendment needed to be upheld, the fact these students felt entitled enough to try this stunt to begin with is concerning enough. Moreover, PSU is just one of many campuses where conservatives are under threat of being silenced — if they haven’t already been banned entirely.
The war on freedom of thought and personal authority is already here. What side are you on?
