Three weeks ago I was hopeful that I was seeing the first signs that people around the world were finally ready to fight back against the freedom crushing Coronavirus restrictions. I was so hopeful that I wrote this article People around the world are beginning to rise up against Coronavirus restrictions and vaccine mandates. My hopes that I was seeing the beginnings of a wave of mass protests that would ultimately result in the end to all of the lockdowns, mask mandates and vaccine mandates that have plagued the world for the past eighteen months, have since been extinguished.
In the two weeks leading up to that previous article, I encountered numerous articles chronicling mass protests where tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of individuals were taking to the streets to demand an end to all liberty destroying Coronavirus restrictions and mandates. These mass protests were happening all around the globe and seemed to be gaining in both the numbers of protests each day and the number of individuals at each protest. It really seemed to me that a momentum was beginning that would feed on itself, and over time, escalate to a point where governments around the world would have no choice but to end all mandates and restrictions.
Unfortunately, these protests petered out soon after I published my article. The momentum stopped and the protests quickly diminished in both size and frequency, without any meaningful easing of restrictions and mandates. None of the conservative and libertarian websites I get my news from are posting stories about new or continuing mass protests now, even those in Australia, which appeared to be on the verge of exploding into mass riots. These mass protests might be continuing, and all sites, even Breitbart is ignoring them, which I doubt.
Right now I am so disheartened by the fact that these mass protests have diminished rather that escalated. I am sickened by the fact so few around the world seem to value their freedom enough to stand up and say, in a firm voice, enough is enough. I am most saddened that so few here in the United States seem to value their freedom and liberty at all. This is most shocking to me considering that the United States used to be the freest and most prosperous nation that ever existed.
I am not going to give up the fight, even though it now seems to be a hopeless cause. I’m actually going to redouble my efforts to bring about a mass nonviolent uprising against all of these mandates and restrictions, and I encourage everyone to do the same. I’ve always been a rabble rouser who enjoys a good fight, even if it is a hopeless cause.
