‘As the American colonists suffered under British tyranny for many years before the breaking point at Concord, so have American citizens today suffered at the hands of their own government. They, like their forefathers, have demonstrated incredible patience even as that patience has work thin.
Americans are patient no longer. They are standing up, asserting their rights, pushing back, and making clear they will no longer comply. The oligarchs may have in mind that they can simply continue this tyranny forever with masks, social distancing, and most hideously of all vaccines.
They cannot. The revolution has begun. There may or may not ever be a statue of the woman at Target as there is of the Minuteman in Massachusetts. She is no less significant. Another shot heard round the world has been fired.’

My take on it
And Magazine is new to me. I have become aware of it because of this article, which I came across on Telegram.
The article impressed me, for both its reasoning and its tone. It chronicles some of the key propositions cited without scientific merit by both government and corporates in support of ineffectual and indeed harmful policy responses to Covid-19.
Beyond that it testifies to the power of a lone voice, informed of its rights. Very much in the spirit of Solzhenitsyn’s ‘Live Not by Lies’
If you appreciate common sense and common courtesy, and inspiration, you will enjoy the read.
