Keeping us safe. That's the message being sent by those in power these days. Reminds me of one of President Ronald Reagan's speeches where he said, "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are 'I'm from the government, and I'm here to help.'"
And while I'm quoting famous leaders, remember this one? "Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it." Churchill.
Here's a little history lesson: The proclamation of emergency rule was the beginning of dictatorships for people such as Hitler, Mussolini, Ataturk in Turkey, Piłsudski in Poland and António de Oliveira Salazar in Portugal. Emergency rule. That is what happened in 2020 and is continuing in 2021. The government has declared emergency rule all under the guise of "keeping us safe."
As some states have started opening up, the regime sees their control slipping so now they are proposing Vaccine Passports. Those that "comply" and get the vaccine will be afforded more freedoms than those who don't. This plan is very similar to the Chinese Social Credit Score, but more on that in a minute.
This experimental vaccine is already proving to be the most dangerous vaccine created in recent history. According to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, in the first two and half months of 2021, there have been 2,050 deaths following injections. The vast majority of those deaths are from the Covid 19 vaccine. For a little perspective, there were 165 total deaths from all vaccines in 2020, 181 in 2019, 162 in 2018, 120 in 2017 and 175 in 2016. In fact, the total deaths since 2009 don't total the total number of deaths in 2021.
I am not anti-vaccine, but the American people need to have the freedom to make their choice of whether to take the vaccine and not to have their freedoms infringed upon if the choose not to.
What is next? The Chinese have a Social Credit Score that they use to either "blacklist" individuals or families or provide additional benefits to those that have a preferred score. What influences this score? Things such court documents, traffic violations, defaulting on loan payments, smoking in non-smoking areas, or playing too many video games. And your fellow citizens can report you and influence your score.
