So much of what passes for public discourse of issues today involves the powers-that-be trying to bully or censor the rest of us into accepting their agreed-upon explanation. It all reminds me of the scene at the end of The Wizard of Oz, where the curtain is pulled back, and the wizard bellows, “Don’t look at that man behind the curtain!” Of course he would say that, because Dorothy and her friends eventually looked at the man behind the curtain and discovered that wizard was a fraud.
Same for many issues of the day: the seemingly-intentional disaster of the Afghanistan pull-out, a rogue general who defied President Trump and could have committed treason, the various Covid controversies, the Critical Race Theory being taught to our kids, the January 6 defendants rotting in jail without any rights, the fishy 2020 presidential election, and the discovery that there is an Antifa professor in a Sacramento public school, trying to turn the school kids there into Antifa revolutionaries.
We are told not to think for ourselves, and unfortunately, way too many Americans follow orders and do not deviate from the approved explanations. As preppers, we need to continually “look at that man behind the curtain,” assess the situation, and make up our own minds.
