sad, and way too accurate, way too often

    It's nearly impossible to point out or explain an obvious lie to people who have made a conscious decision to ignore it. Only those with a sense of liberty and an open mind will accept that the system is a charade of the highest order.

    A great exemplar of the subject matter's accuracy is the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land with such supporting subcomponents as woke progressive dogma and false theocratic reasoning. Individual sovereignty, inalienable rights, liberty, peace, prosperity, sustainable order by "the laws of nature and of nature's God", are realized through individual sentient beings. The delusionally inflicted with collectivist, socialist and other heard "public mind" perspectives can not be refuted through rational or fact based arguments — such devoted theism does not relate to a natural law / science / ultimate truth reality.
