Around the globe, people are beginning to wake up to the rise of totalitarianism – within the West. Many have long suspected it, some have warned about it, but the Covid outbreak and government responses to it have now convinced many millions that something is not right in the free world. It just is not free anymore, and it is getting worse all the time.
The way a crisis was harnessed to give the state unprecedented powers and control over the masses was a frightening wake-up call for many. Power-drunk politicians and leaders milked this event for all its worth, taking away the most basic of civil liberties and human rights from its citizens.
Scarier still is how many of these citizens went right along with it: ‘Well, the government knows best, and they are just trying to keep us safe.’ When you get to that place then freedom is basically gone and tyrants have nothing left to do but enjoy the spoils.
