“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.” —Archbishop Desmond Tutu
UPDATE: After reading Carl Eric Scott’s thoughtful reflection on this essay (https://pomocon.substack.com/p/margaret-anna-alice-strong-medicine), I have replaced the JP Sears video and surrounding sentences with a lengthy new section addressing Carl’s valid concerns about the flippancy of the video detracting from the overall tone of the essay. Please take the time to read that new section as it deepens the conversation on truth, justice, reconciliation, and forgiveness.
Thank you, Carl, for prompting me to improve my essay!
I was a good German...until... I took my son for a doctors appointment and the pediatrician insisted I get Covid tested because I had traveled over thanksgiving (Herr Fauci said if you travel you WILL be exposed to Covid) and I had my typical winter runny nose. I said ‘No thank you.’ The psychopath literally chased me out to my car. And that’s when I realized: this is insane. I’m out.
I was fired from my job 4 years short of full pension for refusing the shots. I have never been one to feel sorry for myself, but I can’t help but feel like I have been victimized. This article made me feel a little better. Thanks for that.

And, I’m a Badass German. :) ;)
Here’s the proof:
Nancy Pelosi has contracted the virus. Per her spokesperson, she rec'd her SECOND BOOSTER last month. I'm no math wiz but that's four jabs of mRNA elixir goodness in an 82-year old woman, the demographic heading to the Big Farm Upstate in rapid fashion per the UK data.
The bills are coming due on a bad loan.
We are all here, caught in the matrix, and waking up is our biggest task.
I've been a rebel and challenger of the dominant paradigm for as long as I can remember - but I still get caught up sometimes. We need to forgive ourselves, forgive those around us who get caught up. Because the brainwashing and coercion has been super-intense - everybody has their breaking point, and it is not for any of us to judge another person for cracking.
Here in Australia, in the last few months of 2021 we had jab mandates, a bit different in every state but 100% for health workers.
When my son's partner succumbed - because she has a mortgage, and kids, and a job she likes - my first reaction was dismay, and then I started looking for ways to help mitigate the possible damage (because she was dead against participating in this experimental injection).
Another friend - a specialist nurse - also succumbed, for the same reasons.
Most of my family members (except for my son) have also been injected - but they were all convinced by the government propaganda.
Yet all are victims of this mind control operation - which has now ventured beyond mind control to body control too.
Here in Queensland, Australia, we have had a jab mandate for eating out at any sort of sit-down cafe, restaurant, pub, club, since December 2021 until the end of next week. Some businesses fought it - and got quite brutally targeted by police. Others just did the minimum: put up a sign, and mostly didn't take any action to check people's green tick. But there were some businesses who went out of their way to go the extra mile: some businesses outside the government mandate (eg furniture shops) who still decided it was a good idea to put up signs saying that only vaxxed people could enter. And some have been quite rigorous in enforcing.
In the beginning, it was understandable, as our government made it quite clear that businesses who did not take steps to enforce the mandates would be hit with heavy fines. (And in fact, they have done this with some businesses.)
How should we judge them?
Personally, I feel that the ones who went out of their way, are ones I will never patronise again.
The ones who complied apologetically, well, how can I judge them, knowing how ruthless our government has been when defied?
But certainly, the ones who resisted (even passively) will get my future patronage when these mandates are lifted next week.
Those who succumbed to the jab mandates because of the pressure and threat of destitution have my heartfelt compassion.
Those who resisted - and lost their livelihoods - have my utmost admiration. (Me, I am retired, so being unjabbed was an easy decision for me.)
The ones who think they have a right to impose any of this on the rest of us, well, they have my undying contempt. Even those whose professed motives were altruistic. Because deciding what is in the best interests of other people demands at least a bit of time and effort trying to think about how this might backfire, how it might not be as helpful as intended, how it might not actually be beneficial at all. This is so if you give your neighbour a plate of cookies, and it is so if you decide to wear a mask around them, and it is so if you want your kids to get injected in order to save grandma.
We all have a responsibility to think about the consequences of our actions and our decisions - that is called "being an adult".
And if we don't, then we are liable.
A "good German", a bad human, one who is guilty of doing harm.
Doing thoughtless harm is maybe not as bad as intentional harm, but it is still something we should be trying to avoid, in our path of learning, growth and evolution towards the Light.
Great list of 20 questions! Just needs a corporate media question, so good people like Dr. Malone don't fall for their scams and invite them to their horse farms.
My God. Gold. I gave up trust in authority figures at a very young age. Now that I am not at a very young age, I instinctively doubt anything they say. I never wore a mask, never “socially distanced”, never followed a single one of their fucking rules, never got a shot, and I never ever will. And if anyone had a single doubt, Pelosi, right at the beginning after all the mandatory bullshit started, walking around her “beauty salon” with no mask after having it open just for her should have given them a clue.
By the way, most of the Good Germans (I mean the ones that slavishly stuck with it to the end and only let up when the gubmint told them to) have done what all Good Germans do, they’ve hidden the evidence of their perfidy and hope no one mentions it. YOU MUST NEVER LET ANYONE FORGET WHAT THEY DID, LEAST OF ALL *THEM*. No excuses.
Proud to be able to tell my kids and grandkids that their mother did not go quietly into tyranny.
Excellent way to bring all the everyday complicity which allowed tyranny to flourish. I am celebrating being a Badass Brit .
Being 'red-pilled' also comes with a price. We are early Christians being blamed by Nero for the Great Fire of Rome.
I'm not feeling so "badass" these days. Both my wife and I - and our kids, fortunately - saw this for what it was from the beginning. We left our home of twenty years and moved south to give our kids a more normal school experience. We've lost friends, sacrificed hobbies and interests, and have gained a reputation for being 'crazy conspiracy theorists.'
The level of depression and hopelessness that I experience daily makes it difficult to function. My entire belief system has been destroyed. I no longer have faith in government or basic institutions like the military, medicine or law. I no longer enjoy entertainment or sports because the level to which they are instruments of manipulation is too apparent.
I am not suicidal but I certainly understand how someone could look around and decide that "enough is enough" and blow their own brains out. I can't process how far humanity has descended and there will be no coming back.
Let's not fool ourselves. While we are busy patting ourselves on the back for our bravery and vision, the majority of people out there are still 'all in' and will happily resume mask-wearing, taking more shots, and having their movement digitally tracked if their government tells them they have to as a precondition to seeing Foo Fighters sans Taylor Hawkins live in concert.
My wife lost her job due to her company's vaccine mandate. Luckily, she found another one albeit for slightly less money. Regardless, she's doing okay.
I work for a great international company that, fortunately for me, never mandated vaccines. I'm grateful for the stance that my company took. Regardless, I estimate that ninety-five percent of my colleagues are vaccinated based upon an unscientific survey drawn from comments made, attitudes expressed, the "Hey, everybody, I just got my second booster" applause-o-meter, and the number of people who still insist on wearing masks in virtual meetings or who have mask selfies on their company profile photos.
Because my job requires international travel I still have the veritable 'Sword of Damocles' hanging over my head. It's only a matter of time where I will be asked to attend some convention in Europe or in Washington D.C., New York, or Chicago that I will have to decline which will then expose my dirty secret. While I have a fairly unique skill set and there's no guarantee that I will be fired immediately, I suspect that my ability to continue in my role will be seriously questioned.
Not a "bad ass." Feeling pretty "f*cked", actually.
We Badass Germans do what we can, having delivered 32% of the comments on the EU proposal, way more than the population share of 19%. The statistics by country are interesting in general: overrepresentation of Germany, Italy, Austria, Netherlands, Latvia; underrepresentation of France, Spain, Poland, Romania.
Badass German here; did not answer "yes" to a single question on the list. Have lost a few "friends" along the way, moved states so that I didn't have to fight so much every day, and had two businesses close down (travel and trade shows, impossible to operate during the lockdowns) but I am still happier being a badass than a follower and would do it all again if I were forced to.
Ohhh, the irony of that Rage Against the Machine song.
Wow big comprehensive post full of well thought out links. Bravo.
