Grooming: it is what a child molester or abuser does to prepare his or her victim to accept the abuse without question. It is a form of mind control where one manipulates the victim to accept what is about to be perpetrated without question.
A lot of grooming has been taking place in our country as of late. It is in the form of narratives from the media and politicians who say catchy little phrases and lay guilt trips on the people. My husband has always told me that if you say something loud enough and long enough, people will eventually start to believe what you say whether it is true or not. He is right.
Take for example in Ohio. The governor for a couple weeks prior to his state-wise mandatory mask mandate would repeat that masks represent freedom. “Masks represent freedom”, “be kind to others”, “wear a mask”, and “we’re in this together”: these are all phrases I am sure you have heard in your own states and on the media.
Do masks really represent freedom? I guess that depends on what your definition of freedom is. If your definition of freedom involves being allowed to go only where the state tells you can go, then I guess you are free. Welcome to how socialists define freedom. “Any society that will give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both” (Benjamin Franklin).
Here is the dictionary.com definition of freedom:
- the state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint
- exemption from external control, interference, regulation, etc.
- the power to determine action without restraint
- political or national independence
- personal liberty, as opposed to bondage or slavery: a slave who bought his freedom
- exemption from the presence of anything specified (usually followed by from): freedom from fear
For many places in our country right now, people are not at liberty if they do not to wear a mask. They cannot go about their lives without some type of external control, interference, or regulation. They have no power to determine what they will do or where they will go without restraint from the government. Unless they agree with the narrative, they have no political independence. There is no personal liberty unless one is under the bondage of a mask. To interact with the world around them, they are being specifically told they must wear a mask. There is no freedom from fear. Indeed, the mask represents fear. It is a constant reminder to be afraid.
So right now, you have a bunch of people running around the country wearing masks who thing they are free because they can go into stores and public places. After reviewing the definition of freedom, do you think they are free?
It is a false freedom predicated upon people’s fear. To have “freedom” from the fear the media incites each and every day with manipulated data and exaggerated stories, people are willingly subjugating the true freedom which we were given by God to the false freedom offered by the state.
Wake up people! Don’t you see it? You have been groomed to buy into false freedom. You have lost your personal liberty and have become slaves to your abuser.
“Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive” (C. S. Lewis).
