For the unvaccinated, the rollback of authoritarian COVID mandates comes with a sigh of uneasy relief—but the fight is nowhere near over.
Though the justification for the pullback has been “declining numbers” and “evidence” that such measures actually worked, more astute Americans know that such a move telegraphs a shift in the political science rather than the medical science.
If midterms were not looking like a Red Wave of historic proportions in the making, the story might be different. Moreover, the reactivation of COVID measures is certainly still on the table after Election Day, especially with the seasonal decline of immunity—a biological reality the mainstream has willfully ignored.
We caught a glimpse of the establishment’s ambitions in globalist strongholds like Australia, Canada, and Austria: full-scale centralized determination over the human body. Those are the ominous templates that they are itching to implement here in the US.
In speaking with fellow dissidents on the matter of the rollbacks, most are relieved. And yet, the question lingers for us all: how do we deal with our peers who would have cheered on sending the unvaccinated to the gulags?
In a survey conducted in January by Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports, Democratic voters have shown how far they are willing to go. Out of 1,016 likely voters, 59 percent of Democrats would support keeping the unvaccinated confined to their homes, except for emergencies. 48 percent of Dems say governments should be able to fine or imprison those who “publicly question the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications.” And, 45 percent of Democrat voters would support the government requiring the unvaccinated to “temporarily” live in “designated facilities.”
While I love freedom advocates who are vaccinated, this is uniquely a question for those of us who chose not to receive the jab, or at least, those who do not plan to receive boosters. The plain, unvarnished reality is that we live in the same nation with millions who are willing to let the state restrict our movement, deprive us of our livelihood, or perhaps much worse.
Again, many of us are just relieved to be “let back” into civil society. The prevailing thought is, “I just want to be left alone,” with perhaps the added caveat of “I will forgive, but not forget.” In the same vein as the latter, it isn’t enough to pretend like we won our freedoms back and to declare a hollow, premature victory. The Leftist establishment only rolled things back because the measures are currently unpopular and threaten their hegemony in American politics and mainstream institutions.
The medical security state has already been successfully established. At the flip of a switch, they can now simply recycle the playbook each winter: massage the numbers to inflate cases and hospitalizations; pump up fear and anxiety via media collaborators; and parade talking heads to lull the public back into compliance and a false sense of safety.
It’s not enough to want to be left alone.
To the “forgive, but not forget” sentiment, I would add: “…and seek to take the wheel from those in the driver’s seat.” Unfortunately, as ignorant and pitiable as we might find fellow citizens who were persuaded by the relentless propaganda, in their blindness, they might have sent us to our demise. Like disarming a child who made his way into the knife drawer, we need to protect the child from hurting themselves by causing further destabilization in society, as well as ourselves from the whims of the highly impressionable Leftist hivemind.
I hate to say it, but average Democrats, heavily influenced by Leftist cult leaders, have shown themselves to be a liability to the few of us who are values-driven and who prioritize freedom. These voters have demonstrated they will support their party’s aggressive campaigns against political enemies with little to no questioning or self-awareness. Such Democrats even include some of my own family, friends, and acquaintances, as I’m sure is the case for many others as well.
In the Mass Formation thesis, as coined by Dr. Mattias Desmet and popularized by Dr. Robert Malone, the distribution of the mass hypnosis is as follows: 30 percent are brainwashed; 40 percent in the middle are open to be persuaded; and the remaining 30 percent see through the veil and are aligned against the narrative.

Though, as evidenced by the rollbacks, there is more latitude in how we can engage that middle 40 percent. In my own conversations, there is a growing share of everyday people who are now starting to realize how ineffective—and even nefarious—the measures have been.
We need to operate with the vision of full-scale institutional takeover. We cannot be satisfied with authoritarians taking a hiatus because it is politically advantageous for them at this moment. We need to take the reins and do what the establishment Right has failed to do for decades: lead an offensive, rather than react to the whims of pink-haired Maoists.
As we accrue a larger stake over public opinion, the hopelessly hypnotized 30 percent will, hopefully, become less and less relevant. We need not seek to convert them, but rather outnumber, outmatch, and outmaneuver them. The window has cracked open, and now is the time to make moves. It’s time to speak up and push the middle to our side, the side of freedom and ultimate responsibility over one’s own fate.
