Tyrants just about always say they mean well in imposing tyranny. Sweeping prohibitions, coupled with harsh enforcement, the tyrants say, are necessary to advance important conditions, such as health, economic wellbeing, or defense from an enemy’s menace.
So it goes as well with United States President Joe Biden who has unilaterally exercised broad tyrannical powers on matters including mask mandates and vaccine mandates in the name of protecting people’s health.
Addressing his mandates that people take experimental coronavirus “vaccine” shots, Biden, in his December 21 speech related to the US government’s actions taken in the name of countering coronavirus, acknowledged that “vaccination requirements are unpopular for many.” Then, declared Biden: “But my administration has put them in place not to control your life, but to save your life and the lives of others.”
Every freedom loving person should outright reject this go-to “I mean well” excuse used by tyrants through the ages. Even if the experimental coronavirus vaccine shots were safe and effective as propagandized nonstop by government officials and people in the big money media, the freedom to reject the shots and other medical interventions is fundamental. People are wise to fight to protect against government abuse of this freedom irrespective of politicians’ promises of safety.
Next time you hear Biden talk up one of his mandates as protecting people’s health, remember that he is repeating a common tyrants’ pitch that time and time again has led to destruction of people’s freedom. Tyranny, despite promises otherwise, has tended to lead to bad health results for the people as well.
