The Road To Serfdom: Compliance Via COVID-19

Friedrich Hayek’s 1944 book The Road To Serfdom warned us of the danger of an ever-growing government: citizens become serfs. In modern terms, serfs = slaves. They have no rights, aren’t allowed to speak up, their property is controlled by the government (which means in functional terms they have no private property), are told what to do, where to go, and what to think. 

Medieval serfs under the feudal system were not allowed to own land. The Lord of the Manor allowed them to live on his land and farm it for him. In return, he offered them protection from invaders. Sound familiar?

We will protect you from the big bad Covid. Obey Us.

In the United States, the rule of law (the Constitution) has been replaced by the rule by Executive Order. Emperor Joe is now the Lord of the Manor, and we act like his serfs or slaves. The Count of Covid, milord Fauci, is his right-hand man. The CCP Covid virus gave federal and state governments the perfect cover for their massive power grab: do what we say or die from Covid. This despite the low mortality rate from Covid, which they cleverly hide from us.

Like the medieval Lord of the Manor, the government claims to be our only protection from the invading CCP Covid. Notice how most state and local governments quickly made the distribution of the vaccine a government monopoly? Before Covid, flu shots weren’t government-controlled; you could get them at any pharmacy. Governments want the power of life and death over us. 

How did we get here?

Fabian Socialism in 1880s England advocated gradually turning a country socialist by small changes introduced year by year. According to Britannica, “the name derives from Quintus Fabius Maximus Verrucosus, the Roman general famous for his delaying tactics against Hannibal during the Second Punic War.” Gradual small changes, all in the direction of more government control, is the strategy the Democratic Socialists used to get us here.

In America, we know this strategy as “How to boil a frog.” If you drop the frog in boiling water, he hops out immediately. Put him in a pot of water and gradually increase the temperature. He stays put until it is too late.

Democrat Socialists have been turning up the heat on American freedom for years. Always under the guise of a noble cause: save the planet, global warming, end global hunger, equality for minorities, equality of outcomes, etc. And now the latest noble cause: prevent the spread of the CCP Covid virus.

We are the Frog

In the field of behavioral psychology, this is similar to treatment for phobias known as Systematic Desensitization. A colleague of mine had a fear of flying, yet her job required her to travel on airplanes. Using this technique, she practiced a relaxation exercise in a gradual sequence: first, in the airport just looking at airplanes, then at a gate watching others board an airplane, then (with the help of a gate agent) standing in the jetway leading to the plane, then sitting in an aircraft parked for the night. She gradually overcame her phobia and began to fly for her job. 

Similarly, the Left and Democratic Socialists have desensitized us to a gradual loss of our freedoms. First, just looking at Socialists. “See Bernie Sanders? He looks nice enough, doesn’t he?” Then, watching others surrender control over their healthcare. “Look at Romney Care in Massachusetts. It’s not so bad. Now let’s try ObamaCare.” Then watching neighbors forced to shut down their small businesses. “It’s to prevent Covid, so I guess it’s OK.” Then laid off from your own job, “It’s to prevent Covid, so I guess I have to.” Then you get extra unemployment money from the Federal Government. It now pays more to stay home than to work.

Guess what? Now you are on the Federal payroll. They own you. What government gives; government can take away. You depend on them just as they planned. 

Notice how personal and controlling the Imperial Covid Commands are:

  • Shut down your small business (we control your business)
  • No family gatherings for weddings, Thanksgiving, etc. (we control your family)
  • Wear a mask (we control your breathing)
  • Sanitize your hands (we control your hands)
  • Keep 6 feet away from one another (we control your feet)
  • Socially ostracize anyone not following these commands (we control others though you, our willing accomplice in social control)

Before Covid, with similar infectious diseases like the flu, we all made our own decisions about avoiding catching it, and we did fine.

Comply! The Biden-Borg Hive Mind Commands You.

As a fan of the Star Trek series of TV shows, I remember the invading enemy known as the Borg. The Borg “assimilated” other species into the “hive mind,” whereby everybody thought the same thoughts and obeyed the same orders. Their two key sayings were “Resistance is futile!” and “Comply.” No personal freedom, no individuality, just compliance to central authoritarian tyrants.

We hear the string of orders from the state, local, and federal branches of government all have one theme: Comply! And their orders are all so similar. I wonder if they are all controlled by a Socialist Biden-Borg Hive Mind? 

What do you think? Better think for yourself while you still can, before the Socialist Hive Mind controls what you think.

Michael McCarthy

Michael McCarthy is a life-long student of liberty, limited government, and free-market economics. As a young man, he taught and crewed at the Flint School aboard the 156’ two-masted schooner Te Vega sailing in Europe. Atlas Shrugged was required reading.

In 2010 he saw the acceleration of big government control in politics, business, and culture. Hoping to reach the next generation through fiction entertainment, he wrote the prophetic novel The Noah Option. Powerful politicians target brilliant black scientist Dr. Grace Washington. Her story continues in the sequel, The Rainbow Option, when powerful elites unleash a deadly virus on unsuspecting Americans, and Grace must develop a cure. In The Timshel Option, ISIS invades and creates The New England Caliphate, making women second-class citizens. One teenage girl fights back.

"The things I predicted in my novels came true in the nightly news. Our country is in trouble. Like Abraham Lincoln, I hope for a new birth of freedom,” says McCarthy.

4 Ways the Globalist Elites Are Ramping Up The Great Reset Ahead of Midterm Elections

4 Ways the Globalist Elites Are Ramping Up The Great Reset Ahead of Midterm Elections

The JD Rucker Political Report – Much of what the Left is doing is using the midterm elections as cover while they push forth a bigger, long-term agenda. It is short-sighted to believe all the odd actions we’re seeing taking place in America are just about the midterms. Keep your eyes on the whole globalist agenda, so you’re not caught off-guard…

America’s Sale of Oil Reserves to a “Hunter Trump” Ex-China Partner Would Be Headline News

Perhaps legacy media would be more interested in demanding White House answers if BHR had been founded by someone hypothetically named “Hunter Trump.” And of all places to send our emergency oil in the midst of a global shortage, why to China, a country that is Russia’s main market, to support its war against Ukraine that Biden blames for American pump pain?

Truthfully, EV Automobiles Are NOT Going to Work!

The lack of efficient, cost-effective motor transportation will reduce the available food supply, making us even more dependent on the government. Costs of inefficient wind and solar-produced electricity will make us broil in the summer and freeze in the winter, starve for lack of electricity to run the refrigerators that preserve our food, and make us dependent on…

Is Politics Really a Part of God’s Plan?

Shall we turn a blind eye to politicians who sexually abuse our children, pander to the cartels, and violate every one of our God-given individual rights? Do we obey the political agencies who impose evil and oppose God’s moral laws? Do we pay taxes to support abortion and support a war that promotes a Globalist agenda? Do we close our churches because politicians tell us to do so?

The Religious Persecution & Purging of Our Troops Threatens America’s National Security

Dems Evacuating Biden Sinking Ship Have No Lifeboats

Reflecting sentiments of interviews with “nearly 50 Democratic officials,” the Times reported alarm about rising Republican strength amid extraordinary pessimism about an immediate path forward. Quoting Steve Simeonidis, “To say our country was on the right track would flagrantly depart from reality,” adding that Biden “should announce his intent not to seek re-election in ’24 right after the midterms.”

7 Ways Families Can Prepare for Economic Collapse

The JD Rucker Political Report – We need to try to fix the economy, at least in ways that it affects our families. Elections aren’t enough. Republicans will say all we need to do is vote out the Democrats, and it will all be suddenly better. But Kamala Harris or Joe Biden will still be in the White House. Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy will still be leading the GOP…
