The draconian being contemplated in some places and implemented into others regarding COVID-19 vaccination mandates, among other mandates, are something that will be very difficult to put back into the box once released into the ether.
Perhaps no one has conveyed this more aptly than stand-up comedian and podcast host Joe Rogan.
On Friday’s edition of “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, Rogan was having a conversation about the hysteria surrounding COVID and possible mandates with Black Rifle Coffee Company CEO Evan Hafer.
At one point during the conversation, Rogan went on a mini-rant to explain why the U.S. is the greatest country in the history of the world — “freedom.”
The history of every single country that’s ever existed other than the United States, up until 1776, every f***ing country that’s ever existed was run by dictators. All of them. This [the U.S.] is the first one where you had elected officials. This is first experiment in self-government that actually worked, and it created the greatest superpower the world’s ever known. It created the greatest cultural machine, the greatest machine of art and creativity and innovation, right f***ing here.
And how did it do that? It did it through freedom. Because when you give people freedom, you let people do whatever the f*** they wanna do, they actually find ways to succeed and grow and thrive.
But as soon as you put the boots to them, as soon as you tell them, ‘You have to do this or you can’t do that. You have to listen to me.’ Now you have a mini dictator. You have one step away from a king. You have one step closer. You're moving one step closer to dictatorship. That’s what the f*** is happening. That’s what’s going to happen with the vaccine passport. That’s what’s going to happen if they close borders. ‘You can’t enter New York City if you don’t have your papers. You can’t go to here unless you have that. you can’t get on a plane unless you do what I say.’
Rogan continues and talks about how certain things that were both thought and presented as impossible are now happening, like “breakthrough cases” of COVID-19 in vaccinated people.
The amount of control and power that comes with mandating all of these different edicts, in the elite’s stated motivations of simply trying to save lives and help people, will always be presented with a new excuse every time they want to reimplement said mandates.
At some point, you need to let people be accountable for their own lives and quit try to be a nanny state.
