They don’t want freedom

“The sheeple aren’t going anywhere. They like my world. They don’t want this, this sentimentality. They don’t want freedom, or empowerment. They want to be controlled. They crave the comfort of certainty. And that means you two, back in your pods, unconscious and alone, just like them.”  

 – The Analyst, “The Matrix Resurrections”  

While standing in a line that snaked over into the lumber department at Home Depot, I was exposed. The only one without a mask, the only one willing to expose my identity while the rest of the drones hid behind a piece of cloth supposedly to keep them alive. 

This is LA, one of the many liberal-ran cities that mandated masks and vaccine passports while setting criminals free. There’s also the cost of living that pushes the middle class to the curb. So, I’m used to being the lone resistor. But the more I looked around, the more it became apparent that these people weren’t really wearing a mask either.  

Literally, these people weren’t wearing their mask, at least not effectively. Most of the mask wearers had their entire nose exposed. Some even wore the mask under their chin to prevent nothing whatsoever. 

This is the same scenario everywhere you go here. You walk into a store and see people not properly wearing their mask, yet they still wear it. Why? 

First and foremost, let’s establish that the people wearing their masks improperly, meaning not fully covering their mouth and nose, don’t believe the mask will prevent them from catching Covid. We know this by simply looking at how they’re wearing it. 

If they truly believed that piece of cloth was the only thing standing in the way between them getting Covid, they’d go out of their way to make sure it stayed on.  

The other possible reason they could have for wearing their masks is due to the government-enforced mask mandate. They throw on a mask just to avoid being harassed by store employees. They just want to get in and out without incident. 

This seems reasonable, but then again it doesn’t when you realize I’m walking through the same store, and no one is enforcing anything. They don’t believe in the “science” behind the masks, nor are they being forced to wear it. So, what keeps them compliant even when there’s no need?  

The above quote from the latest edition to The Matrix franchise says it all. These people don’t want freedom. They may not verbalize this, but their actions demonstrate it. In fact, no one will outright say “I want less freedom, I submit to the machine.” Just like no one is going to announce their plan to completely restructure society for the benefit of those in power.  

This is the fundamental difference between the two opposing political views in this country right now. One side believes in freedom, individual responsibility, and self-determination. They believe the government is most effective when its sole function is to preserve our rights. 

The other side believes the government has an obligation to provide for the population. They believe in centralized power where the government should be given the power to make decisions on behalf of the citizenry. They may not admit this, much like the chin mask wearer won’t admit they’ve been conditioned to wear the mask. 

Most people are afraid of being stigmatized. They don’t want to stand out even if the side they land on doesn’t align with logic and reason. It’s a lonely path, too. 

You quickly find that out in southern California. At any given grocery store, you’ll stand out for the brave act of exposing your mouth and nose.  

These are the moments you realize a lot of these people are sheep wanting to be controlled. They want to be told what to do, how to think, and how to feel about a given issue. They react to fear and emotionally charged headlines. They don’t have knowledge on the issues they feel passionately about, which mostly consists of regurgitating talking points from “experts.” 

They take comfort in the fact that they’re not the “outlier,” fitting in nicely with the mainstream narrative.  

These people will tell you they don’t hate freedom because freedom is not what they despise. What they despise is the responsibility that comes with freedom. Why bear the burden of thinking for yourself when there are cookie cutter responses at your disposal? 

You don’t have to take time away from video games and reality TV. You can watch your sports and catch up on the latest celebrity gossip instead of worrying about planning your future. Life is good, it’s easy, why waste it making decisions

That is the mindset infecting us at a much deadlier rate than any virus. This virus is the stifled mindset that surrenders all self-sufficiency and independence to the ruling class. The TV said there’s a virus, so there’s a virus. 

No sane person would dare challenge the ruling elites’ authority. The notion that a person even would is absurd to these people. They wear a mask one day, 2 the next, get a booster to their booster on Friday, and condemn their family to hell for gathering on Christmas because a “doctor” who has spent the last 30 years in an administrative role said so. 

When podcast host Joe Rogan fell ill to the virus, he consulted with medical professionals who prescribed to him a therapeutic alternative to the vaccine. And it worked. He was clear of any symptoms and tested negative in just three days. But when he shared his experience with his audience, the media ridiculed him. He was called “irresponsible” and accused of spreading “misinformation.” 

That happened to NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, too. On a recent appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, the Super Bowl champion criticized the narrative that has usurped what power the people had left. 

Criticism isn’t allowed because thinking critically is difficult. It’s not just because you have to spend time away from the Metaverse, but because critical thinking risks taking you out of your comfort zone. 

We are selling out for comfort. We value being cared for above self-determination. We’re preoccupied with settling century-old vendettas in the name of “equity,” while giving power to the government and away from the people. But that’s what they want.  

It’s hard to convince someone to free themselves when they have a completely different definition of “freedom,” If we are sincere in our work, we’ll start there.
