You are very correct noticing and having an instinct about the loss of some intrinsic liberty. I am from the UK and still stuck in the UK. Lucky you,
you managed to escape to beautiful Canada. With all that wilderness you have a better shot at freedom than any of us.
I was just muttering to myself a moment ago;
"I'll have to make do with what I've got, I am not going out into that "#hole" today (coining Trump's term)."
Yes, I will not be eating too much today as I can't cope with going to the local supermarket and having to look at all the miserable aggressive faces
that do look very poverty stricken indeed. They look like hell. Twenty years ago Cornish people, with all the fresh air, used to look well good; the
girls were real country girls and the boys very handsome. Now everyone looks miserable. So many illnesses and infirmnities, miserable selfish old
people, too nasty to inspire you to want to care for them, et c, moan, groan, moan.
I am not at all free, but I have one freedom that I use to full effect: THE FREEDOM OF WILL.
Our rights are being eroded to suit globalism as they see rights as too much red tape and damaging to potential profit margins. I feel like there is
less law for me now and less health care. There is less opportunity and choice in housing, in employment. At work I must obet strict Marxist like
DICTATES and not even allowed to talk about Kesus anymore. Some might fire me just for wearing a crucifix or stating certain moral standpoints and
OP, you are right. It is all being manipulated this way. They are doing this to keep us under wraps. They are RISK MANAGING their wealth and power, to
keep it that way. Truly, it is this that is the motive behind the scenes. What else could it be that would make them go to so much trouble? They are
uniformizing and universalizing the populations so the little batteries exhibit the same automated responses, something that can be guranteed to be
I personally want to be empowered with employment opportunities and choices, education opportunities, social opportunities, leisure opportunities,
health opportunities, welfare opportunities housing and location choices and opportunities. I want choices and opportunities in all walks of life. My
choices and opportunities have dwindled in the past twenty years drastically. All these are now strictly rationed and in tight demand. Only the most
aggressive, crafty and selfish will get better access than me. I am none of those things nor would I want to be. I can't compete in such a stampede so
I withdrew into my alternative existence, into my own corner and I constructed something nice behind my front door. Inside here it is peaceful and
gentle. Out there it is...well, Donald is so right...a #HOLE!
You are so lucky. Enjoy that nature and kiss Canada for me. I wish I could live in a country like that. I would be off mountainbiking in the
wilderness all the time.
Less of everything for us and more for them. That's the way it goes. To make one man rich you have to make a hundred, a thousand, a million, a billion
