The meaning of freedom, dear worst-reader? In these times the answer depends on who you are asking. If you’re asking a slave what freedom is, the answer should be obvious. Just give that a try with #Americants. If you’re asking a sick covid patient, who is perhaps on life support, is the answer less obvious? And so. What does one do when you don’t know you’re a slave or you’re intellectually incapable of understanding the seriousness of the covid? Hence the advent of conspiracy-theory mania a’la my beloved & missed united mistakes of #Americant. You know, that place that can’t even figure out the seriouesness of what happened on January 6, 2021. Of course, #Americant ain’t alone with the question that propagates the most bat$hittery there is. Hence the article linked below. For. Don’t you know, dear worst-reader. When the powers-that-be, those in the hot seat of decision making for the powerless and apoplectic masses, who couldn’t (intellectually) fight their way out of a wet paper bag, when they ask the question of what freedom is, the answer may or may not be obvious. And so. While the apoplectic and ignoramus masses pass on finding a/their answer–you know, so they can lap in the luxury of stupid-fun instead–thereby enabling and facilitating fascism–hence, former prez pee-pee-hair–freedom is only definable through the eyes of those who can afford it or have the biggest podium to speak it. And so. If you happen to be one of the apoplectic and ignoramus masses and then you actually try and answer the question, you will immediately be labeled a terrorist or, worse, a communist. And this is how fake, fiat, fiction becomes the norm in Orwell’s 21st century western world, baby. Or maybe not.
It wasn’t enough that the likes of Brexit and #Trumpism achieved their ultimate goal. You know, power over the world and power over ripping people, banks and heads of state off. Yet. After such power is squandered and the nevermore of yesteryore lies naked at our feet, I’ve still managed to acquire a CDC vaccination card (along with the actual vaccination, don’t you know). How can that be? If you listen to the rightwing talking heads you’d think that I owe my first born now. On the other hand. I’m so thankful for the vaccination that I’m dancing along side two-steppers, Irish kick dancers and let’s not forget the joy of mindless country music dancers in bumfcuk Kentucky, Pennsylvania, or, goodness forbid, Idaho. Indeed. And then there’s the thought that I have to return to #Eurowasteland in a few days where such a card will make my travels that much more less difficult. Freedom anyone? Not only does having such a card mean that I don’t have to pay stupid-money to get another PCR test but, somehow, some way, having proof of a vaccination goes well with all the other vaccinations I’ve had over the years. You know. All those vaccines I got in 2015-2016 because of my travels to India and parts of south east Asia, etc. But let me not get-on about how worst-writer, the most unsuccessful writer in all of history, travels. Or?
So what is freedom, dear worst-reader? Is freedom being able to choose between covid or a vaccination? Is freedom the 2nd amendment, which has become a/the mechanism to kill so many more so haphazardly? Or is freedom the special privilege whereby the Haves can so easily rule over the HaveNots? But on that note, I die-gress.
