Soft Tyranny and COVID-19

The political left is using the COVID-19 crisis to take away your rights and to secure themselves power for decades to come. Mail in voting is just one step. People would mail in their votes, and that is fine—just like absentee voting. However, the political parties will have lists of who has voted, and that’s when the chicanery begins—all those dead people who still are on the voting rolls, all those who haven’t yet voted—are subject to voting fraudulently. This is how elections are stolen. That’s just the start of it. What happens if the government (local, state or federal) says no COVID-19 vaccine, no public service, no flying, no working, no buying food? They are already monitoring you with cameras and drones.

Alexis de Tocqueville defines soft tyranny in his book Democracy in America, Volume II (1840): “It [the government] covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence: it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.”

We have to be careful that the cure is not worse than the disease. Minimum guaranteed income, vote by mail, mandatory vaccinations all would be the beginning. Then comes your free speech. Then comes your religious freedom–No, it is here now. On April 29, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas announced plans for reopening the city. One of the requirements: “Religious gatherings like weddings, church services and funerals can resume with 10 people inside a location and 50 people outside, as long as social distancing is maintained and names and contact information of attendees is kept.” Open businesses must also record names, contact info and times customers frequent. Sounds benign enough, but what do you think those names and contact information will lead to? Softy tyranny, that’s a given. Shut your mouth. Do as you are told.

This is a new standard of tyranny because it creates a concern that you are being watched just in case you step out of line or speak your mind that it may invite some government investigation or ruination. We are becoming victims of soft tyranny.  Galatians 5:1 says, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” A free people can only exist by adhering to the precepts of God. Bondage is bondage, whether it is sin or tyranny. We live in a society where a sinister minority is using fear to remove your Constitutional rights. Let’s not be victims of tyranny of any form. Speak your mind. Wake up your family, friends, neighbors about this threat. We need to stand.
