It’s Time For All Good Men to Stop Fearing John Galt – Gold Goats ‘n Guns

Posted by M. C. on December 17, 2021

We all wear that mask at times but only with those worthy of reciprocating.

All things come to an end, good and bad. What matters is who we choose to be, what we want and unafraid of where those choices lead us.

“Who is John Galt?

Ayn Rand – Atlas Shrugged

There comes a point in every person’s life when they have to reckon with the person in the mirror. Who am I? What do I want? Where am I going?

Since the beginning of the COVID-9/11 story I’ve watched it break so many people who couldn’t answer these basic questions. The fear of the virus uncovered a lot about all of us.

For many, unfortunately, it provoked their inner tyrant.

Last year, during the height of the COVID insanity after publicly hanging up on an unhinged Lee Stranahan live on Sputnik Radio I tweeted this out.

When you hit someone’s existential fear that’s when you uncover their inner tyrant. When something is beyond their capacity to understand, that’s when they turn to projecting that fear on other people.

This is what was done to justify the lockdown. #endthelockdownnow— Tom Luongo (@TFL1728) April 27, 2020

This wasn’t just directed at Lee, but it really was.

The hard investigative journalist of February 2020 turned into a sniveling, state-worshipping baby by late April. Fear of death uncovered his Room 101. That incident, among others, eventually took down his radio show with certified stand-up guy, Garland Nixon.

Today it’s a shadow of its former self.

I don’t know if my action was the catalyst for the changes that came, but I do know after that day nothing was the same.

The sad truth is that Lee wasn’t alone. His collapse was just the most public version I ran into personally.

When you buy into fear, you sell your reason. Gone is your skepticism as your world collapses. Your eyes focus on your next step too afraid to raise them to the horizon.

There is no bigger picture, there is only the moment.

For 20 months now, we have lived among people terrorized by a story, not a virus but a story, that told them they are the heroes for being afraid and the skeptics are the villains.

Be seeing you
