Tyranny of the Omnipotent Moral Busybodies

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
~ C. S. Lewis

I am often amazed to see that whatever we are facing, the “Inklings” (Lewis, Tolkien & friends) have been there first.

“I am often amazed to see that whatever we are facing, the “Inklings” (Lewis, Tolkien & friends) have been there first.”

And The Bible… almost always has an answer, even when speaking about things not known back when it was written.

I was debating against a ‘doctor’ of theology about that, after I mentioned Revelations about ‘all will see the two Witnesses stand up ‘ after lying dead in the street for 3 days, he didn’t respond to me. Wonder why! LOL!

On May 8, I told my husband by June 8, this mess would stop and we’d be asking ourselves why these idiots actually played this game for so long. Well, two weeks ago when I was approached by the greeters (walmart) to have a mask!!!$$$###!!!….I just stared and the greeter said they couldn’t MAKE me wear one now, but governor would make it a law and next time, I’d be obligated…I paraphrased most of this. So, I just kept having that word MAKE controlling my words and said that’s right, you can’t make me!!! And screw Breshears –this won’t last… Read more »

The Left have a new rationale for wearing a mask. It’s no longer really about public health, it’s yet another way to virtue-signal — to show you care about other people.

And it denies personal differences. No face = no identity; you’re a mere part of the state as a whole. It also takes away a good deal of one’s ability to speak one’s mind, as you can’t be heard clearly or loudly when wearing a mask. But I suppose you can still roll your eyes…

Or not wearing a mask reveals your political stance: “Mandatory Masks Aren’t About Safety, They’re About Social Control.”

From the article: “For Trump’s supporters, declining to wear a mask is a visible way to demonstrate “that ‘I’m a Republican,’ or ‘I want businesses to start up again,’ or ‘I support the president,’ ” said Robert Kahn, a law professor at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis who has studied Americans’ attitudes toward masks.”

New York shoppers hound customer out of grocery store for not wearing mask, the same New York where no one would intervene to help you if you’re mugged.

And we can be guaranteed that these are the same people that voted for Cuomo who deliberately placed covid patients into nursing homes. Mindless sheep….and Cuomo should be charged with murder.

Lana, you are exactly right. I realized the same thing a few weeks ago. But the jurisdiction is NYC, so nothing will happen even if it did get to court.

I say both of the Cuomo brothers should be referred to as Fredo. There’s not much to differentiate one from the other. Both liars, both corrupt, and I’d bet both with double-digit IQs.

It just boggles my mind that he could do what he did and get away with it. Low IQ or not, this kind of decision contitites the most basic common sense and survival instincts.A moron can compute the consequences of mixing the sick with the elderly. I saw that Cuomo took big bucks from NY nursing home owners, lobby or something of that order along with giving them all immunity in this. So governor crypto cuomo knew exactly what he was doing- hell he probably thought he was fulfilling his leftist role in implementing population control. Where are the thousands… Read more »

Yesterday’s bond slave ran when s/he had a chance. Today’s bond slave stands behind a shopping cart or cash register and preaches. It’s obvious who they are working for.

The “Inklings” Tolkien,Lewis, & Co were at Oxford when prominent one world government teachers and students were present. Milner’s Kindergarten/Milner Group which the notorious Globalist “Round Table Group” came from spent time at Oxford when the Inklings were there.. I theorize Tolkien & Lewis knew about their plans and wrote some of their books in warning of. C.S. Lewis’s “That Hideous Strength” is one of the greatest Dystopian books, yet has flown under the radar, unlike the great 1984, Brave New World, etc Prominent historian Carol Quigley exposed them in his excellent books.The Secret Elite & the Origins of the… Read more »
