1) we are a society of self-absorbed, narcissist robot-children. We do not value family. We do not venerate old age. We either reject children or we treat them as cute appendages, like white poodles on a leash. We do not save or plan for the future and we forget the past
2) We think the past is just a boring regurgitation of phrases from history books. The words "communism" and "fascism" have no meaning and hold no threat or dread. We won't watch foreign movies because we can't concentrate on reading subtitles.
3) In the meantime, 40-year-olds zoom down our streets on skateboards, on their way to mom's basement to play video games. The past has nothing to teach us, the future is irrelevant and the present is boring. But we can alleviate our boredom by taking selfies
4) preening on social media and extol the virtues of "self-love" (back in the day that meant masturbation but now it's just a school of thought that values "feeling good about yourself" above everything else) Of course it's vacuous - you can only feel good about yourself
5) based on merit and achievement, not based on 30 minutes of meditation and repeating self-praising slogans. Now we have taken our hate of children to a new level: we believe it's ok to experiment with their health, deprive them of education and social contact
5) all in the name of protecting OURSELVES from a respiratory virus. This horrifying moral lapse is cheered on and encouraged by many of our leading "public health" experts. The parallels with the Communism I experienced are breathtaking. The Communists extolled having children -
6) in order to strengthen the "collective". They were indifferent and hostile to families. Abortion rates in communist countries were sky-high (Romania was the exception but their treatment of kids and families was even more abominable)
Now we stare into our mirrors
7) and tell ourselves how "amazing" and "awesome" we are, yet we are so weak and insecure that we censor speech and opinions, lest we feel offended. We are robotic, childish narcissists, so in love with our image and our masturbatory world view that we throw all ethics overboard
8) There is only one cure: teaching kids healthy individualism, the belief that with hard work and education many individuals can excel, teaching kids that harsh words and insults will come their way but they can shake them off and continue to success
9) we must teach the importance of family: mother/father/kids as the building bloc of EVERY healthy society. We must immediately abandon the teaching of collectivism - the poison that kills liberty and responsibility. We must encourage travel and learning of languages,
10) the respect of elders who are our trailblazers, just as we are the trailblazers for future generations. We must love and respect our children and never endanger their health for the sake of "saving one life") We must teach the quest for truth. The truth is tough
11) and the path is thorny. But it's the only way. Otherwise, we already are burning Rome...just waiting to hear Nero's fiddle

1) The announcement by the EU that vax passes will be needed for travel as of July 1, 2021 is profoundly disturbing. The pass is being positioned as the "great liberator" which will allow people to take their "well earned holidays" It's nothing of the sort
2) It is a sinister move by the European Union, less than 80 years after the Nurenberg trials, to introduce discriminatory measures by dividing society into the "clean" and the "unclean" If we believe that the C19 vaccines are effective, then this paranoia is misplaced
3) Get vaccinated and you are protected. The vax status of the person standing next to you on the train shouldn't concern you. Therefore, the EU is signaling not only its intent to divide but also its lack of trust in the vaccine. I note with substantial sadness

1) I started the year 2020 as your middle of the road conservative. Although I disliked Hillary Clinton and her venal Democratic apparatus in 2016, I was not happy about Trump's victory. I thought he was too rude, too crude, too ignorant of the issues.
2) I supported his Middle East diplomacy, which I thought was Nobel worthy but thought his tariffs and his opposition to free trade was harmful and passe. I was raised by Holocaust survivors, two very modest people. The ostentatiousness Trump displayed went against my grain
3) To be honest, I thought the Southern Baptist crowd who thought Trump was the second coming, struck me as crazy. My thinking was more or less in line with the Bill Cristol crowd - Republican "never Trumpers". Then 2020 happened. The more I read about Covid, the more I realized

I assume we all have a red line. The vax pass is mine. It's my hill to die on. My barricade. Czech friends tell me: get yourself vaccinated so you can visit. Are you crazy? Has Starbucks coffee and McDonalds burgers clouded your mind? 40 years of Communism forgotten?
Does your new found freedom mean nothing to you? And they say: That's your American hysteria talking. You must be a Trump voter (yes, even Czech friends are TDS infected) It's just a shot, you get your passport and we can go down a few beers in cozy Prague taverns
And I say: the fact that they've stolen your freedom and now they're selling it back to you piecemeal (until the next scary variant comes along) doesn't alarm you? And they say: no, we're not alarmed. We're in our late 60's now, not about to march to change the world.

THREAD on creeping tyranny...I lived it
Prior to 1966, the citizens of Czechoslovakia required three things to be allowed to leave and re-enter the country: a passport, an exit visa and a foreign currency permit. In 1966 the authorities abolished the exit visa
for "fraternal socialist countries", such as Hungary or Poland. For travel to the West, one needed an official invitation on the basis of which an exit visa *might* be granted With exit visa in hand, one could get about $20 worth of hard currency - no matter the length of stay
This situation created two classes of citizens. Ones with relatives abroad had a chance of leaving the country, as did of course all Communist functionaries and apparatchiks. Everybody else was out of luck, though after 1966, a quick visit to Warsaw was ok

In 1968, as we crossed the border from Czechoslovakia to Austria on a beautiful, sunny September day, my father told me: "My son, unlike me, you will live your life in a world of freedom. You'll travel where you like, say and publish what you like and associate with whom you like
For the next 50-odd years his prophecy was fulfilled. I have travelled freely and lived in six countries, acquiring the citizenship of a couple, learning new languages, touring as a musician and publishing short stories in Canada, the UK, Iceland, Switzerland and elsewhere
All of that came to an end 14 months ago. From my vantage point as a 68 year old semi-retired musician, the limitations put on my life now closely resemble the limitation put on my parents during Communism, limitations my father and mother did all the could to save me from

Some folks see today's CDC announcement (masks outside not needed) as a ray of hope. As someone raised under Communism, please allow me a pessimistic note. The Communist regime would occasionally throw a candy to the populace ("you may travel to Hungary without an exit visa")
but nothing in its essence changed. If we are ever to wake up from this nightmare, the pressure must come from the bottom up. Cosmetic top down adjustments are essentially meaningless. The wound is too deep, the moral panic too deeply ingrained after 14 months of fear mongering
Every single day I see people here in Central Florida (where no mandates have existed since September 2020) walking and biking with masks on in 90 degree heat. In most stores, I'm the only unmasked person. People don't listen to the CDC. They watch other people.
