Today, April 25, marks the one-year anniversary of my Substack, which I launched with the essay I still consider the Rosetta Stone to my investigations of propaganda, totalitarianism, and mass hypnosis.
Thank you for your contribution to a better future. Even in the madness of these times, we can be grateful that centralized power means concentrated incompetence. And decentralized power produces distributed wisdom. In their arrogance, they do not realize that they missed their opportunity to accomplish their evil goals by a couple decades. Even with the shallowness of most social media discourse, it realizes an environment where people can find their voice. I was asked by a couple sitting a bar last week, enjoying an early evening cocktail, if I was optimistic. I said, “I am realistic, but, yes, I am optimistic.” Optimistic about the long future. For three reasons. 1. People like you Margaret Anna Alice who take personal initiative to contribute. 2. Because past generations have shown us how to deal with this madness. We are not generation one, but generation ten or twenty. 3. Because lies and corruption from a systems perspective are unsustainable. Every lie ultimately reverses itself with truth. And in a digital age, nothing is hidden. Who watches the Watchmen, we do. Stay strong. Your work matters.
And let's hope Substack stays true to its roots and its founders don't sell us out for $$$$ or to be liked by the woke OR that governments (e.g. Germany comes to mind) don't try to shut access to the platform off like they have tried or done with GAB, Telegram, Russian "state media" etc!
Facebook et al are also trying to compete in this space for those who want to write and read official narratives...
Congrats....you are one of my favourite people on substack!!!! Stay strong and free!!
Love this!! Substack has changed my life, and far overtaken the time I used to spend on FB. The quality of content and users here is unmatched. Glad I found you!
I came across your letter to the Oregon Authority by accident. I and John Droz had been working for months on fighting the mask mandates with reports, letters, videos - and your essay so perfectly outlined the entire charade in such excruciating detail - the kind of long form reading I crave but so few writers will do. It was so good that I decided to include it with our Mask report whenever I educate people on "masking." In one instance I sent both reports to a mom and daughter up in Canada and her daughter wrote a beautiful essay, quoting your words, that was read at the local school board meeting and used to help stop forced masking at her school. She is 13 and was suffering great anxiety - your essay inspired her to write! I also believe your essays do a wonderful job bringing together all the technical Covid topics - the many twists and turns - that so easily overwhelm. Sometimes it's hard to know where to begin on an issue, because everything is inter-related and overlaps - but you bring a methodical order to all the chaos and make it seem so simple. I do think your years of reading, across a broad spectrum of topics, has not only prepared you to recognize what is occurring, but has equipped you with the knowledge to write and respond in record time - something that would take even the fully awake and educated of us many days or weeks to compose. But you? You seem to systematically churn out grand essays in a day! I knew from the moment I first read your work, that you were something special. I greatly appreciate your essays, and share them often. I am particularly intrigued by your two recents spats with Jesse and John and have thought long and hard about what their responses tell us. It's heartbreaking and maddening at the same time - but we must not give up. Figuring out a way to break through the mass formation is something we must do. Having lived up until recently in Portland, OR - I have friends and family who are literally brainwashed and have seen up close and personal how this sets in and takes over. So thank you for doing what you do - I greatly enjoy reading all your work and can hardly believe you only have 300 plus paid subscribers.....the dam ought to be breaking soon.
Congratulations on a year most spent spectacularly. You are a true inspiration to so many people. I wish we could clone you and spread the word. I have nothing but complete and total admiration of you. You have achieved a remarkable and well deserved place in one short year. You are a rare light in a forest of darkness. I always look forward to your sharp and intelligent take on what is happening in our world today.
Happy 1 year anniversary and I have really enjoyed and been enlightenined by your content.
This first post is indeed your Rosetta Stone apex of many fine articles of awakening, perhaps setting you up as the Princess of Integrity , if you are willing to wear that title.
I am delighted to have found and now follow you young lady...
Godspeede to you in Christ Jesus the most Wonderful Name of all in Heaven & Earth!
You were the first person on Substack that I found, well, about one year ago. I thank Lew Rockwell for keeping me sane during those dark days: I was hearing ambulances on the main road at maybe 7 times the normal rate, coinciding with mass jab events at Phuket Airport on the north of the island. I'd long been pretty anti-vax but in past times had been able to take a philosophical meet in the middle view of other's personal medical choices. This thing was screaming red flags everywhere and looked straight like a mass psychological operation. At the same time it seemed everyone in the USA and Thailand had bought it all in mass. I'm grateful for the two people I was able to convince: my mother and my teenage daughter, to stay away from the jabs. But my warnings fell on deaf ears and I saw compliance everywhere else, as friends fell in line one by one. I was desperate for dissenting views, and other than a few long time "anti-vax" websites like vaccine impact, the only one hosting these unpopular opinions seemed to be Lew Rockwell. You were one of the first dissenting voices I found and you resonated with me strongly. You have a fighting spirit which is desperately needed in these dark times. Thank you
Congratulations on one year!
Happy Anniversary, Margaret. I feel honored to be included in the list above and will try to live up to expectations.
Only one year? Unreal. Your body of work in this time period represents one of the most remarkable I’ve ever encountered. 338.
I have enjoyed and learned so much from all the masterful pieces I have had the privilege to read. Thank you.
In five more years, no one will remember, there wasn’t always a beacon for truth called Margaret Anna Alice, without whom the world would be a much darker place.
I congratulate you, on your anniversary, however, as the years go by, and, as long as there are people who crave honesty and art, your anniversaries will pass and become commonplace, but, I believe, your work will shine through and be evergreen.

Congratulations!! Happy 1st Substack Anniversary! It has been a most educational and entertaining few months for me to be reading your amazing posts.
I owe you a sincere apology, however! I was a bit imprecise about the citation on M&M of CAF: John Titus mentioned Mark Crispin Miller - who, however, had featured YOUR letter in his post--and I did catch YOUR NAME on your post on the pending California bills in the screen that Titus was showing! Titus inaccurately credited MCM for the post, which was, in fact, YOURS to begin with!
I wish I could send you a screenshot to show you exactly what I mean. How do I do that, I wonder??
i love this place, ive yet to meet a troll, everyone (almost) is very bright and awake
i do worry that the crazy leftists from twitter will start showing up but i think the great content keeps them at bay
thankyou for pointing out sage hana, i could use some other entertainment although i did just buy CJ Hopkins Zone 23
