How deep does the medical tyranny rabbit hole go? Governments have violated their citizens’ rights in the name of safety since time immemorial, but the bureaucrats must be itching to see how far they can push the envelope of tyranny now that they’re doing it in the name of our health.
Do you like frying your eggs in butter? Well, wait just a minute there – too much butter can be bad for your health, so it’s your politicians’ job to limit your access to it. How much butter is too much butter? Let’s ask this scientist (whose grant money is dependent on government approval) what he thinks about the matter.
Do you enjoy a good drink and/or smoke at the end of a long day? Ha ha! Not anymore, you don’t! That drink and/or smoke has disastrous implications for your health, and we don’t want you to be a burden on the publicly-funded healthcare system you’re legally obligated to use. Why not enjoy a handful of name brand antidepressants instead?
What’s that? You want to peaceably assemble with like-minded people during a protest against the government? And what – spread disease, like some kind of terrorist? You’re better off staying at home, for your own good, unless you’d like to burn down a large swath of the nearest city in protest of something the government condones being against. Science has proven that disease can’t spread wherever social justice is afoot.
We think you catch our drift: With the rise of medical tyranny, the government gets free license to limit virtually any aspect of public or private life that it could deem bad for your health. Isn’t it funny how that works? The government, which can legally spy on you, extort your money, and kill you is just dying to keep you healthy – regardless of the cost to your freedom.
Better fight back while you still can, or dry fried eggs will be the least of your problems.
