COVID-19: Reality Check

For months now, we have seen abuse from the government unlike anything before. While most Americans are perfectly fine with the loss of their first, fourth, and even sixth amendment rights, some are beginning to wake up. As a result of this, social disobedience is quickly becoming a common trend. With so much confusion, who is in the right?

The introduction of COVID-19 introduced more than a new potential threat, it brought out mass fear and even hysteria. As the government began learning about the virus, they implimented some rather debatable “safety procedures.” Social distancing, masks, that sort of thing has now become common practice. However, many debate as to rather or not they went to far.

First amendment

Under the first amendment, all Americans are granted the freedom to practice their religions. What this means is the government has no legal grounds to interfere with this, or other, rights. However, since the COVID-19 situation began, we have seen that very ordeal unfold. In several cases, those who have dared to break the “law” of not going to church, were met with arrest. How is this possible? A simple loophole is all it takes, more on that later.

On social medias, such as Facebook and Youtube, those who are speaking out against the governments’ actions, are finding themselves censored, ability to post/comment blocked, or outright banned. In a controversial move, Facebook has gone as far as to form its own “Supreme court.” The intent of this is to determine what is, or is not, allowed on their site. However, this has lead to many conspiracy theories.

Fourth Amendment

Under the fourth amendment, all citizens have the right to be secure in their persons, homes, and property. At this point, we may as well just rule this one a dead right. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen what happens to those who dare to defy their government overlords. While initially, the “safety protocols” were mere suggestions, people have been brutally beaten and arrested by police. Their crime? Daring to run their businesses.

There are many articles discussing how the police have arrested business owners for literally committing no crime. By violating the “recomendations,” and being arrested for it, proves that these are not just suggestions. Furthermore, they demonstrate the more disturbing image at hand. It was Adolf Hitler who once said:

“The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way, the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.” For many, this is what’s happening. Of course, when it’s a $1000+ fine for not wearing a suggestion on your face, it does seem plausible.

Sixth Amendment

The right to a speedy trial. Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you already know that this has been absent. Upon getting arrested, one could expect to sit in jail for an undetermined amount of time, with no courtdate. Why? Because the courts shutdown. While this is starting to change, it doesn’t change the fact that this right may had potentially been violated. Of course, this is just another cog in the political wheel.

What we have seen is nothing less than government operated terrorism on its people. Criminals are being released from jails/prisons over alleged COVID fears. However, people are being sent to jail simply for operating their own businesses. Places where facemasks are “mandatory,” don’t even care what you wear on your face. A person can walk aroumd with tissue paper on their face and have no problem.

From what I have seen, this os a game to strip citizens, using fear and false numbers, of their constitutional rights. The worst part of this, we are allowing it. When you really begin to dig into this, the contradictions become very apparant. This situation is no longer about protecting the people or preventing the spread of a virus, which has an approx 3% fatality rate globally. This is a war in which it is the government vs. the people.

Paris attacks: commentary

Recently, we witnessed one of the most horrific attacks on human life since 9/11. Enlight of this, we have seen an uprising in support on a global level. When I read the article regarding this attack, I couldn’t help but think, “those are brothers, sisters, parents, those were people who were loved.” The infamous terrorist group, Isis, has been making remarkable strides in looking like an international prick. Beheadings, shootings, the list goes on and on. This is a group using the illusion of religion.

Now, over the years, I have come into contact with many Muslims. Generally, these interactions have been pleasant and I enjoyed their discussions. When I see groups like Isis, it is one that appauls me. A group that has claimed Muslim in order to carry out their twisted and perverted ideology of this religion. When I see groups like this, who recruit openly on social media pages such as Facebook, it bothers me.

This is a group to which people willfully suicide in order to murder dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of people. Their reasons, I am sure, are legit in their twisted minds, but I am inclined to disagree. When you murder so many people in the name of whatever God you serve, you only look like a fool; a self diluted, incompetent moron.

I have seen the hashtag “prayforparis.” This tells me many things about our species, most importantly, it shows unity. This hashtag is more than just another hash courtesy of Twitter. This is a symbol that openly demonstrates how a mass slaughter can, and will, backfire; it demonstrates just how much inner strength we really have.

However, even with this in mind, we cannot forget those who were so wrongfully killed. No matter what religion you are, even if you are non-religious, these families are in a time of despair. I would like to encourage everybody to assist in any way they can, even if it is just lending an ear. In a time like this, council goes a very long way. We, at War on Corruption, will do anything that we can to assist. If you are among those families, please contact us. We want to hear stoeies about your loved one and offer any counciling that we can. Our thoughts are with you.
