To the Editor:

Nothing makes sense; they want us to believe what?

The constant drama and mischief available for consumption in the 24 hours a day news cycle, if we are actually getting facts, is discordant. Black Lives Matter seems a noble idea but what are the underlying truths of this organization’s goals. Antifa wants anarchy and no government at all; when convenient, blame is thrust on fascists, or alt-right groups; maybe those labeled as racists, misogynists, ageists, ‘name-your-phobia’, identity politics, all an intrinsically evil way to impede freedom of thought and expression. Why are many so cowardly they must cast aspersions against those they disagree with, and shout them down rather than intelligently articulate their position and have the decency to listen to the other. Were there problems in getting a legitimate vote count, and if so, why? Government cannot have legitimacy with the people if the people distrust the mechanisms that place the representatives of ‘We the People’. What is behind the chaos and what do they want? What are they trying to distract us from?

Have no doubt, this is a battle between communism and freedom. These are attempts to destroy the liberty we collectively have fought and died for; the noise we must endure and the distracting protests are nothing more than that, a distraction from what is really going on. As in the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, …”.

Despite what these ideas are labeled: progressive, democratic socialist, anarchist, socialist, workers party; they are all a synonym to communism. The power brokers, media, and tech platforms attempt to re-write our history, control our present and future, and control the information we get. We have allowed our students to be indoctrinated rather than educated in the facts of history, civics, government, and rhetoric. Communism has always failed and led to totalitarianism, tyranny, police state, murder, destitution, torture, genocide, infanticide, slave labor, detention camps; all the ultimate crushing of Man’s soul. There is a plan to deprive our citizens of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. But now they are calling it “The Great Reset”.

Klaus Schwab is the Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, more commonly referred to as ‘Davos’. He has proposed the disruption caused worldwide by Covid-19 to be a narrow opportunity to perform a worldwide ‘great reset’ of our world in order to: “To achieve a better outcome, the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a “Great Reset” of capitalism.” By this he means he has a plan for a complete transformation of the world economy and the liberty of its people. There will be no money, no private property, no democracy. Instead, every decision about what we individually do for a living, what we individually consume, whether we individually can take a vacation; will all be decided for us by a remote, unaccountable and unknown group of hegemons. This sounds like totalitarian communism.

Schwab has proposed a concept called ‘Stakeholder Capitalism’, wherein private corporations are placed in the position of “trustees of society”. Draw a set of correlations to the current model of ‘Shareholder Capitalism’ and ‘State Capitalism’ where the state sets the direction of the economy. This appears an intent to impose oligarchy that controls the government of the citizens of the United States, and the rest of the world. You can try to mislead the people by inserting the term capitalism, but there is no capitalism about this.

Aristotle wrote in Politics; “It is harder to preserve than to found a Democracy. To preserve it, we must prevent the poor from plundering the rich; we must not exhaust the public revenues by giving pay for the performance of public duties; we must prevent the growth of a pauper class.” The Great Reset sounds like a plan for the rich to plunder the other 99 percent.

The United States 2019 Federal Budget was $4.4 Trillion and GDP was $21.43 Trillion. Compare this to proposed legislation such as a $32 Trillion single payor healthcare system, $1.6 Trillion college debt forgiveness, $79 Billion per year free college, $93 Trillion green new deal, a $1 Trillion infrastructure plan, abolish ICE, defund the police, have no controls on immigration and provide all benefits for them also; it sounds grand, as does socialism, until it runs out of money – then you have poverty, breadlines and all of the things our older population has seen from the end of WWII until the fall of the Berlin Wall, and still there is Communist China. Our younger generations should have been taught the horrors of communism.

It is time to pay attention and to make sure family and friends are informed. There is no consent of the governed of these United States to submit to these plans and we resist in no uncertain terms. We must do it loudly like we have listened to radical politicians and groups throughout 2020. This is a battle for our liberty.
