After living through the last ten months under the “threat of extinction” by the dreaded pestilence known as the Corona Monster, a.k.a, Covid-19, I am thoroughly convinced that the central issue here is not about dying from a virus which has a 99.9%+ recovery rate, but more about being forced into a society of control and slavery. If this is correct, then some extremely wealthy and powerful persons are gaming the system to grasp everything and everyone in a vise-like grip from which there is no escape. It is the few vs. the many.
This is a war, a total war, between two opposing forces and it will not end until we are completely subjugated or they are completely destroyed.
On one side are those who only want to be free to live their lives according to their principles and beliefs in the best way they know how–in other words, most of us. We live and die, work, love, raise children in the best way we know how without having a great deal of influence in the moving of the rest of the world. Many of us are simply concerned with how we will get through today and have little or nothing left to give to anyone else.
On the other side are those have engineered and control the system we live in. These people use every opportunity to advance their power. It does not matter to them how much time it takes, how much it costs, or how many innocent people get hurt. As long as their cause moves forward, they are patient, but the important thing to remember is that they never stop grasping for more. They always push for more. They compromise when they have to, but the tactic is to negotiate so that they wind up further ahead than when they started. Two steps forward, one step back.
As individual people who live in our own little corner of society, we do not have that luxury. If we give up anything through compromise and negotiation, we never get it back. The more we try to get along, the tighter the chains get. We have to learn to just say “NO!” and mean it.
In an article which focuses on the political standoff between the European Union bureaucracy and the countries of Poland and Hungary, Tom Luongo digs deep into this concept. The article is well worth the time it takes to read it. Below are some snippets which I have pulled. I could not have phrased these better.
“There comes a point where negotiation becomes surrender. Those actively undermining you will always demand more than their right.”
“Through bullying, bad arguments, derision and shaming the relentless pressure of sociopaths and psychopaths wears most people down to the point where they negotiate away something that they didn’t have to.”
“They get you to agree to putting on a mask to make people feel better, accepting “sensible” gun legislation, voting for the guy who promises to only take 25% of your income versus that guy that wants 40%, etc.”
“Negotiation is a natural part of human interaction. There’s nothing inherently wrong with it, as long as both sides approach the negotiation honestly.”
“But, in politics, especially when dealing with those of a particularly self-righteous leftism so common today — as as [sic] shorthand I’ll just call them Commies — negotiation for them is a tactic in a strategic war.”
“Because at the core of their argument is always the threat of violence at worst and emotional blackmail at best. And that forms the basis for a negotiation that truly isn’t one, but made to look like you have a say in the outcome.”
“But in reality you don’t. They want all that you have and are willing to take it from you one bite at a time.”
“This is why, in all things political from the local to the trans-national, every small victory codified into some rule or same treaty is used as a springboard to the next victory and so on. There is no end to the war until one side achieves total domination or the other side, backed into a corner, stands its ground.”
Precisely! This cuts to the heart of the matter and considering the current situation with the Covid narrative, we ought to realize that if we give in to the pressure, we will have lost a very significant chunk of ground which may never be regained.
For the “power brokers and the Machine”, negotiation is a tactic. Compromise is a tactic. The strategy is to overwhelm us with so much firepower on so many fronts that we surrender here, there, everywhere. The ultimate goal is to realize victory in the war by gaining total control over everyone.
We dare not allow this to happen. We must suffer the losses. We must savor the victories. We must never lose sight of our own ultimate goal–which is personal freedom and liberty to choose how we live our own lives. For those who call themselves Christian, this should be recognizable immediately as another front opened up in the age-old battle between Good and Evil–personified respectively as Jesus the Christ and Satan.
Negotiate to gain advantage and time. Give ground if necessary. Do not compromise your principles. Never surrender. Never surrender.

Fantastic post ❤️ gonna read the article you linked to.
Thank you, Alex. Good to hear from you again. I don’t always agree with Tom Luongo, but he generally has very good insight.
Imposition and aquiesencse, the tried and true method of every tyrant throughout history. Say NO! Make them feel it. Never kneel. Go all in. It is the only option.
