Since today marks the inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th U.S. President, it seems fitting to reflect upon what the incoming president has in store.
To take what little control anyone has over their own journey through this world filled with uncertainty,
to protect one’s fate against the vagaries of man,
to discover one’s own raison d’etre
But even with all the autonomy a human being can possibly have,
life can only get but so close to utopia.
There are sure to be some affairs that cause the perfectionists to think
they could’ve whispered in God’s ear when he was building humanity,
then things would be a lot better.
And like some devious genie out of a bottle, the state issues a wager.
They’ll handle all those unpleasantries that run afoul of your sensibilities.
They’ll even use all your favorite buzzwords
so you know
that they’re taking your interests
In return, you give them the materials
for rearranging the order of things ―
Now when the dust is settled,
there will be
a new order.
There will be new social processes
There will be new resource allocation.
And there will be new grievances.
There will be new state directed crusades to
regiment some ideal society.
Then one day,
you’ll find that within all those sacrifices for promised wellbeing
was a license issued for your freedom
to be trapped
in an hourglass
with each passing grain of sand
it’s very existence.
Along with your freedom,
your ability to act will be so withered
that you’ll be unable to break through the constraint
of even the thinnest veil.
At that point,
slavery will be manifested
and all you’ll have left to control
is how much you hope.

In the short time the covid-19 vaccine has been made available, there are already thousands experiencing negative side effects.
According to the Epoch Times, 3,150 people used the CDC promoted smart phone app V-Safe to report infirmities that rendered them unable to work or perform daily activities, and/or required professional medical attention.
A hospital in Illinois temporarily halted covid-19 vaccinations due to a few of their healthcare workers experiencing adverse affects from the shot. Five healthcare workers in Alaska also suffered from adverse effects stemming from the vaccine (two of which were “considered serious”).
While these incidences (as of the present moment) constitute a minority of 270,000+ vaccinations already administered, they provide a concrete illustration of risks some citizens might want to avoid, even amid the potential dangers of contracting covid-19.
But even this rather illuminating data might not give all the relevant information one may need to make a decision on the covid-19 vaccine.
As Mike Wallace highlights in this 1976 special on the Swine Flu vaccines, poor communication within the medical community coupled with said community’s asymmetrical knowledge and negligent dissemination to the general public can lead to life long tragedy.
