Do You Remember? (Video)
A Collaboration with Visceral Adventure
One of the deepest joys of my Substack journey has been connecting with members of my karass from nearly every cranny of the globe as we pool our knowledge, efforts, and talents to resist tyranny; awaken the sleeping; save lives; restore liberty; and work toward justice.
Drama geek and fellow truth gladiator Tonika of Visceral Adventure is one of those kindreds, and I am elated to share this video Tonika created for my vignette Do You Remember? (text below), which I wrote around a year after COVID emergency powers were seized and shared at the end of this piece:
I first reached out to Tonika about a potential collaboration in early November, and she responded:
“Uhm, f*ck yes! 😂 I think the first time I made a comment on your stack was to see if we can do a visual representation to amplify your powerful words.”
I was thrilled to see she was as excited about the idea as me and encouraged her to peruse my podcasts to see which one inspired her.
I had almost forgotten about Do You Remember? (no pun intended), so her picking it was a fun surprise. I love how she brought it to life and illustrated it with such complementary imagery and music—all perfectly cadenced. I feel like she captured exactly what I was trying to convey in the contrast between BC (Before COVID) and AC (After COVID).
To my amazement, Tonika completed the video in record time, and I feel it serves as the ideal Christmas card to you, my beloved readers.
I think this also makes a wonderful video to share with your family and friends, awake and asleep alike. Its gentle, nonthreatening tone may remind them of what once was—and make them question why it is no more. Queue it up during your holiday get-togethers and see if you can get them to watch, which may prompt thoughtful follow-up discussions.
I wish all of you the exuberant joy, meaningful connections with loved ones, and radiant freedom of the BC era as we work together to merge the best of what came before with the newly awakened consciousness sweeping over the planet.
With love, gratitude, and wildly optimistic dreams for 2023,
Do You Remember?
Once upon a time, a little over a year ago, in this land and all lands across the earth, people could walk freely, smiles visible, into businesses of their own choosing, and those businesses could open or close as they like.
Do you remember that?
When families could visit family members, when friends could visit friends. When people could hold weddings and funerals and birthday parties. When grandparents could hug grandchildren. When kids could go to school, play together, and sleep over at friends’ houses. When people who got sick stayed home until they were better, and the rest of the world went about its business. When people could encircle their dying loved ones. When mothers could hold their babies after they were born without the threat of separation pending arbitrary test results. When every death wasn’t attributed to a single cause and announced in the daily death toll dispatches. When a perpetual storm cloud of fear, paranoia, and tension didn’t hang over us, threatening to burst any moment. When people could travel freely, without having to show their papers. When people didn’t think twice about dining out, meeting for coffee, singing, exercising, and dancing. When you didn’t have to arrange for curbside pickup, schedule appointments for everyday errands, and have someone else select and deliver your groceries. When money wasn’t printed in the trillions, falling out of the sky and turning to toilet paper—which, as it turns out, would carry more value—on its descent. When people thought for themselves, decided for themselves, worked for themselves, took responsibility for themselves. When people weren’t deplatformed, shunned, reported, and unpersoned when they shared contrary opinions and scientific evidence. When this information wasn’t then scrubbed from the commons. When people didn’t turn against neighbors, friends, and family members. When it was considered rude to ask about someone’s health status and medical choices. When people helped people, cared for people, and touched (yes, literally!) people. When people didn’t let politics or religion come between them—okay, that one was more than a year ago. But you remember the rest, don’t you? You remember what it felt like? And you know it doesn’t feel that way now. At all. At all. At all.
Oh, how quickly the conditioning takes effect. Oh, how quickly the freedoms flit away with nary a second glance. Oh, how quickly the world becomes an internment camp—its invisible walls constructed by our collective learned helplessness—with rules about when, where, and what you can do, and we all line up for our allotted portions, saying please and thank you all the way.
I remember when.
What do you remember?

📼 Subscribe to My Channels
This video marks my debut at the following channels if you would like to follow me on any of these (not that I expect my videos to get monetized, but I think I need 1,000 followers at YouTube for that if you want to help me get there, and then follow me on the others so you’re all set when my YouTube channel gets canceled 😆):
I have more video projects in the works, including another collaboration with a fellow Substacker and one of my favorite cartoonists (not to put any pressure on her as drawing original illustrations is an extremely labor-intensive process, and she is as madly busy as me).
I also encourage you to subscribe to Visceral Adventure to savor her other video productions (one of which I’ve already shared and the rest of which I have saved for future essays) and long-form introspective essays:

🤲 One-Time Support
After PayPal canceled me last year, I lost all but two of my recurring donations. I set up a Ko-fi account because they take zero percent in fees, as opposed to the nearly 10 percent lost through Buy Me a Coffee. It appears I made a tactical error in removing the Buy Me a Coffee button at the same time I had to remove PayPal as my donations immediately plummeted and have never recovered. I am experimenting with adding Buy Me a Coffee back and dropping GiftApp, which no one has used.
✋ Call for Volunteers (Must Be Affiliated w/ an Academic Institution)
He and his colleagues at Daily Clout are trying to obtain individualized death certificates from states to more accurately and decisively pinpoint the scope of vaccine-associated injuries and death. When submitting a request to the state of South Carolina, the staff indicated that in order to gain access to their death certificates under the statutory research exception to otherwise non-public vital records, they would need to propose a formal study with all the bells and whistles of a rigorous academic study—including an IRB. They are looking for someone(s) who would be able to organize this as Ashmedai is neither a credentialed academic nor associated with any institution.
If you are interested, you can PM Ashmedai on Twitter (@ashmedaidemon) or sign up for his mailing list and reply to the Welcome email:

🙏 Shoutouts & Sharing Gratitude
I would be surprised if you don’t already know Paul as he has been at the forefront of the medical freedom movement from the outset (including playing a pivotal role in the Freedom Convoys in both Canada and America), but for those who don’t, Paul wears his heart on his sleeve—and it is one of the biggest hearts you will ever encounter.
He is a genuine mensch of supreme integrity, courage, and compassion, and I am honored to call him a friend and fellow truth warrior. I was so moved by his words in an email yesterday, I asked his permission to share:
“I love all you do, you are an inspiration and hero to me, I have read all your work, a giant.
“We will meet, all of us in time…but we need you in the battle as you are. I am so inspired.”
The second paragraph is such a beautiful sentiment for this moment in history and this Christmas Eve that I wanted to extend it to all of you.
If you want to be on the pulse of the latest studies and news or just wish to enjoy Paul’s unfiltered, often hilarious fast takes, sign up for his newsletter:
I already raved about Jeff in Letter to Klaus Schwab, which was originally written as a guest piece for C&C, so I won’t repeat myself here, other than to say how immensely grateful I am for his razor-sharp legal acumen, hysterical wit, and inexhaustible commitment to the cause of medical freedom.
Jeff was kind enough to share Baby Alex’s story with C&C readers in this post with this touching introduction:
🔥 C&C contributor and supporter @Margaret Anna Alice wrote an important Substack this week, about the tragic, hair-raising story of Baby Alex, in her mother’s own words. Baby Alex’s calamitous death illustrates the dreadful dangers of mRNA-contanimated blood transfusions. Don’t wait for corporate media to tell you about this.
Sage Hana of Sage’s Newsletter turned her righteous rage over Baby Alex’s tragedy into a provocative question about forgiveness and culpability, a question she has frequently explored at her Stack and one we discussed in the comments:
I want to thank the following Substackers for cross-posting my last two pieces. Below are their accompanying comments.
So sad. All the gaslighting about hugging granny without a mask would kill her until you all got “vaccinated”. And this is the result. For all the compliant ones, Baby Alex’s blood is on your hands.
“This story must be told”
“Remember Baby Alex, whose parents wanted to use unvaccinated blood for transfusions? Find out what happened directly from his mother.......”
“You inspire hope! May God guide Senator Johnson and his colleagues”
“Great letter! Please share widely!”
Thank you for continuing to share and retweet my last two posts as well as supporting my efforts to get Dr. Jessica Rose of Unacceptable Jessica reinstated, which I am trying to accomplish before the Great COVID Debate is rescheduled.
🎞 Next Dissident Dialogues Interview
The next Dissident Dialogues interview is underway! I am elated because this person may just be able to help me answer some of the burning questions at the heart of my work, such as why decent people become Good Germans and colluders—and how we can help them break out of their Stockholm syndrome so they recognize the narcissistic abuse they have been menticided into accepting as normality. She is one of my favorite Substackers, and her first answer is an essay in and of itself.
Paid subscribers gain access to the Q&As one at a time in the “rolling” version as the conversation progresses, so this is a good time to subscribe (especially while the first year is 20-percent off through January 31):
Once completed, the full interview is made available to the public. This is one you’ll want to savor in bite-sized pieces as it may wind up being as long as or even longer than my novella-length cocreation with CJ Hopkins:
