We are witnessing power and government power which is really characteristic of Italian Fascism in the ’20s… They’re using that to kind of engage in emergency orders that simply strip us of our rights – rights to property, rights to assembly, rights to worship, and all of the rights that our Constitution guarantees.
From Naomi Wolf, author and former Clinton adviser, sounds alarm at growing power of ‘autocratic tyrants’. She warns that the U.S. is about to become a ‘police state’.
So people are definitely horrified and people are shocked, and divided. This has all been very sudden. 360 degree full-on totalitarian polices. So a lot of us are in culture shock.
I know from history that no one gives up emergency powers willingly. They always drag it on and drag it on. “Extending emergency measures…”
I really hope that we wake up quickly, because history shows us that there is just a small window where people can fight back before it’s too dangerous to fight back.
Only from studying history do I know how predictable it is when you start to have elected officials saying we are not going to follow the Constitution because…if there’s a pandemic.
Nowhere in the Constitution does it say, all this can be suspended if there is a bad disease. We have lived through Typhus, Cholera, Small Pox, HIV, Tuberculosis, Polio, the Spanish Flu… Never have there been months and months and months of emergency powers when we weren’t actually fighting a war.
Lockdowns have never been done before in free societies. And really we are turning into a version of totalitarian states – before everyone’s eyes.
