Freedom Isn’t Free, Freedom Isn’t Cheap, Freedom Isn’t Easy. It Comes at Great Sacrifice, But So Few Want To Hear That
I just read your response at Lew Rockwell. Great stuff! I live in ———. I have not worn a face mask yet. I was thrown out of my daughter’s soccer game, physically threatened by the athletic director and refused entrance to all others in the city and surrounding counties. I went to war with the school system over mandated masks… in empty stadiums, in open air! Their response was to send several police to games where I would be. I had a doctor friend write me a note so they harassed the doctor with multiple phone calls to his employer and then refused the note because it wasn’t printed on company letterhead. I couldn’t fix it because the doctor wouldn’t take my calls anymore. My regular doctor wouldn’t write a note. She suggested I see a psychiatrist about it! I still refused to wear the mask so I had to watch my daughter’s games from outside the fences, like a leper.
Outside in the open air!!
I did win one battle. My daughter didn’t have to wear the mask. I forced the school system to admit they couldn’t force it on her while outside. I shared this with the coaches but they were too scared to encourage others to claim their rights. My daughter was, every game, the only player to not wear a mask. She’s 15 and has more guts than 99% of the men in this country.
I coached club soccer for the top club in —— for almost 20 years. I got fired last August for refusing to wear a mask or follow other covid orders. That was just my fun money though. It hurt me but not financially. I am a self employed contractor. I tell clients I don’t wear a mask. I have only lost a couple clients. I have never been busier. I still go to Lowes, Home Depot, Kroger and other stores and I am usually the only one without a mask. My dentist allows me in without a mask. So does my corner liquor store (thank goodness!). I approach and thank those that I occasionally see mask-less. A few stores don’t allow me in. I go to stores that do. I will attempt to enter any store and force them to say something about a mask. If they do I tell them why they are wrong and will never get my business and I leave.
People wear masks in stores that don’t care about masks yet they still wear them!
My father bought into all the propaganda and we don’t speak now. My aunt and uncle canceled Thanksgiving. My mother first canceled a dinner because my household “doesn’t follow the data on masks and social distancing.” Then she canceled our usual family Christmas for the same and because I went to a “super spreader” event two days before. My brother and I got in a heated argument over masks and covid and he won’t bring his family around anymore either. He has a masters in public health and thinks he’s smart about covid but doesn’t know a damn thing. None of them do. I know the data like a PhD but they believe the TV and Fakebook instead.
I don’t think this ends well for us. People are so far beyond stupid, obedient, lazy and afraid. They are slaves to their cores. They won’t even stand up to a stupid mask. How can we expect such pathetic cowards to stand up to an obvious stolen election?
I’ve been at this fight since the 9/11 false flag so I’m used to going my own way. I will never wear a mask. I will never obey. But I’m tired Allan. I’m tired of the daily fight. I have a beautiful and wonderful wife and kids but most of the rest of humanity looks like toast and I fear it’s just a matter of time before they try to lead people like you and me onto the boxcars.
I do appreciate people like you who SEE the truth and are still fighting. I guess that’s why I just puked all over you. Haha.
Thank you is what I want to say. Thank you, from one freedom lover to another.
To the very end…
Mask-less in the USA
What an amazing email to receive. Thank you so much.
Children may like a parent being brave or be uncomfortable about it. Obviously your daughter likes it.
This sentence, really warmed my heart. “She’s 15 and has more guts than 99% of the men in this country.”
How truly wonderful that you have fought the fight to keep her maskless on the field. That is a victory that she will be able to proudly speak of her whole life among the free people. Maybe that number is a big one, maybe it isn’t.
Whatever it takes, I need you not to be tired. I need you to keep being your wonderful free self. And if you’ve never read the essay “Isaiah’s Job,” (https://mises.org/library/isaiahs-job) or haven’t read it lately, I’d like to ask you to give it a read. It’s hard to know how your virtuous behavior ripples out into the world, but I have no doubt it does. You make the world around you far more free, even if no one ever acknowledges it.
As for boxcars, no one will be leading me into a boxcar, and I know nobody will be leading you into a boxcar. You are a wonderful person whose example I am inspired by.
