A New Tool and a New Strategy To Win Hearts and Minds — Book Announcement

Available now on Amazon in paperbacklarge printhardcover, and e-book #CommissionsEarned

Other than the few rare individuals who saw through the hysteria from day one, we have all rescued ourselves from the clutches of fear by following a cookie crumb trail of our own questions back to sanity. Covid hysteria is built on a foundation of sand. Once someone begins to have doubts, the official narrative practically unravels under its own weight.

But the True Believers are doing everything they can to insulate themselves from anything that conflicts with the propaganda being peddled on the 6 o'clock news. Doubt and uncertainty are threatening and lead to uncomfortable questions about those in whom they've placed their trust. So, they are working hard to protect their information bubble, which provides them with an illusion of safety. We must work to plant seeds of doubt inside the bubble they are trying so hard to defend. 

But how do we reach the hearts and minds of friends, family members, and colleagues who put their fingers in their ears and run away, or turn on us with hostility when we begin asking uncomfortable questions? How do we get those who are enforcing the tyranny - our local police officers, local health officials, local politicians, and increasingly also employers in businesses and institutions - to confront the immorality of oppressing others? How do we get them all to look at the government's own official data to show them that there is no basis whatsoever for this medical tyranny?

A Glimmer of Hope: Crisis Brewing In the Ranks As More Police Officers Stand Up To Say "NO". Tyranny Collapses If Enough People Refuse to Participate

I recently shared the story of Constable Gilvesy's personal pushback against vaccine mandates in the Toronto Police Services. Momentum is building. Courage begets courage. Something big is brewing.

A number of active members of the Niagara Police Department have formed a group called the Niagara Regional Police United for Human Rights. They, along with some members of the Ontario Provincial Police, fire fighters, and medics are standing up against vaccine mandates in Canada on behalf of all Canadians. 

They have released the following public statement: "Niagara: We stand behind you. We stand beside you. And if you need us to, we will stand in front of you [emphasis mine]. Discrimination has no place in Niagara, Ontario, or Canada. We took an oath to uphold the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and respect everyone in this Country which thrives in diversity and inclusivity. We hear you, and we are here for ALL of you.

They need our support.

Under the Shadow of Damocles' Sword: Forcing Employers to Put Their Fingerprints on Tyranny (an update on Constable Adrienne Gilvesy's fight against mandatory vaccination)

This post is an update on Constable Adrienne Gilvesy's fight against the Toronto Police Services' mandatory vaccination requirement. As a follow-up to the letter she sent on August 28th, which I recently published on my website (An Example of Courageous Pushback For Those Facing Vaccine Mandates in the Workplace), she has now filed an official misconduct complaint with the Toronto Police Service Professional Standards Unit against her Chief of Police, Chief James Ramer, for various provincial and criminal code offences.

If found guilty, Chief Ramer could face time in prison. And, theoretically, so could any other superior with whom she lodges her complaints if they knowingly allow a criminal injustice to continue. "Just doing my job" is not a legal defense. "Just turning a blind eye" also doesn't stand up in court when it's their job to investigate a problem. Once the complaint is filed, those with the responsibility to investigate that complaint are drawn into this fight. She is forcing everyone off the sidelines by making them decide which side of the legal line they want to stand on. This is as real as it gets.

I have reproduced her complaint (with permission) for you below. But first I'd like to take a moment to explain the enormous implications of what she is doing. If enough people follow in her footsteps, NOW, to build momentum behind what she is doing, she is creating a spark that has the potential to trigger a massive institutional crisis that pits the lower levels of our institutions against the upper crust.

An Example of Courageous Pushback for Those Facing Vaccine Mandates in the Workplace

This letter/legal notification was sent by Police Constable Adrienne Gilvesy (a member of the Toronto Police Service) to her Chief of Police in response to mandatory vaccination and mandatory COVID testing requirements. 

I am posting it here with her permission and for your benefit. Never flinch. Be informed about the law. And call an employment lawyer. 

Adrienne, thank you for allowing me to make your letter public! I hope your courage inspires many others to take a stand for their rights. Creating an unstoppable flood begins with a single drop.

The Digital Speakeasy: Episode 1 - The Inmates Are Running the Asylum

For many of us, the past 18 months have been among the hardest of our lives. The isolation, the shunning, and the sense of betrayal as our loved ones lose themselves to this mass hysteria and as our right to think and speak freely is smothered by righteous busybodies. There is a grey filthy fog that has descended over everything.

But the human spirit does not tolerate being chained for long – it will always find new ways to carve out pockets of freedom. Sadness must give way to smiles. Isolation must give way to new beginnings. Silence must give way to the chatter of fresh voices and to the uncensored laughter that renews the soul. 

So, it’s time to revive the speakeasy, updated for the digital age.

Gambling With Our Liberty: Two New Interviews with Julius Ruechel

I recently did two interviews that I wanted to share with you, each with a very different focus:

Calling the Silent Good People (24 min): On August 16th, I was interviewed by Marta Gameiro of Pandata.org. We discussed practical hands-on solutions to wake people out of their mass hysteria, but equally important, how to motivate the silent good people who see what’s going on to break their silence (link to the interview on Odysee.com).

Struggle for Human Liberty Despite the Fear (58 min): On August 18th, I was invited onto the Dr. Peter Breggin Hour. Dr. Breggin and I had a free-wheeling conversation about the philosophical roots and historical forces that gave rise to our Western democracies and the cultural war we must wage in order to stop this authoritarian re-imagining of society (link to the interview on Brighteon.com)

The Psychology of Fear: Interview with Julius Ruechel, by Russ Cooper of the Canadian Citizens for Charter Rights & Freedoms

Major Russ Cooper (Retired) of Canadian Citizens for Charter Rights and Freedoms (C3RF) sat down with me to discuss the psychology of fear and the history of constitutional rights in Canada. We covered a broad range of topics including: 

  • how to negotiate with a government that refuses to debate,
  • why the government is impervious to data,
  • sharing the cost of persecution,
  • wild horses and the slice-by-slice strategy that tyrants use to prey on individual rights and freedoms,
  • 1980 - the year that inalienable rights and freedoms in Canada became conditional upon government approval,
  • societies built around individual rights vs the greater good,
  • why the US Founding Fathers didn't believe in political parties, and then all joined one anyway.
The full interview is available to watch on their website (scroll down through their blog post to find the embedded video):

Roadmap to Freedom: An Interview with Julius Ruechel, by Kate Wand

A big thank you to Kate Wand for this fantastic interview!

We discussed liberty, philosophy, and politics in the context of my latest essay, The Emperor Has No Clothes, and delve into why the silent good people must break their silence in order to safeguard our liberal democracy against tyrants who prey upon our rights and freedoms.

Julius Ruechel Interviewed by Major Russ Cooper (retired) of Canadian Citizens for Charter Rights and Freedoms

I was recently interviewed by Major Russ Cooper (retired) with Canadian Citizens For Charter Rights and Freedoms. We covered a broad range of topics including, deaths inside vs outside government-controlled settings, vaccine odds, why science has become subservient to politics, why models are appropriate as a tool for studying the past but not for forecasting the future, and the silver lining of COVID: a reawakening of public consciousness about how science is meant to work.

The full interview is available to watch on their website (scroll down through their blog post to find the embedded video):

Julius Ruechel Interviewed on the Trish Wood Podcast: The COVID Lies Exposed by the Numbers

Episode 57 of the Trish Wood Podcast: Investigative Writer Julius Ruechel

What if just about everything you believe about COVID-19 is wrong? 

Investigative Writer Julius Ruechel makes a strong case that most deadly outbreaks were institutional and the fault of governments, and that lockdowns were for nothing and worked as a misdirection.

Julius Ruechel Interviewed by Vaccine Choice Canada: Exposing the Pandemic Lies & the Roots of CV-19 Hysteria

I was recently interviewed by Vaccine Choice Canada to discuss the deception during the Covid-19 pandemic and the broader changes happening in society that created fertile ground for the current hysteria to take root. We covered a broad range of topics including: 

  • the gradual philosophical shift in the Western world from a society built around respect for individual rights to a society focused on optimizing the "greater good" for the majority at any cost,
  • why we have lost the culture of restraint that used to put limits on our authoritarian natural impulses,
  • why transparency, evidence, and debate no longer serve as checks and balances in both science and democracy,
  • and the cultural battle that needs to be won to get society to re-embrace the values, principles, and responsibilities that underpin a free society.

"Why Can’t They Just Attend Church Over Zoom?" - Sacrificing Essential Liberty to Purchase a Little Temporary Safety

Throughout the pandemic, churches have emerged as a persistent flash point between public health mandates and constitutionally guaranteed rights and freedoms. As time goes on, the government has turned to increasingly authoritarian measures to browbeat churches into compliance.

Yet far from sparking a public outcry, there is a disturbing consensus of opinion, repeated endlessly by politicians, the media, and the frightened public, that these pastors and their church attendees are selfish and dangerous, and have brought this authoritarian hammer on to themselves. “Why can’t they just attend Church over Zoom?”

Who's in Charge? The Rule Makers, Power Brokers, and Influencers of Lockdown Wonderland

Is this the third lockdown to end all lockdowns, or the fourth? How many layers of masks do I need to wear to buy groceries today? And why is it safe to buy a cup of coffee at Costco, but not at the coffee shop?

We no longer live in a liberal democracy grounded in evidence-based policymaking, logic, and human rights. We've fallen down some kind of rabbit hole into a hellish nonsensical Wonderland where the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, and the Queen of Hearts are making the rules.

We can argue at length about why this nightmare began and who nudged the ball to get the panic rolling. But the more important question at this stage of the game is: Who's in charge now, today? Who has the authority to make this nightmare stop?

To answer those questions, I'm going to take you on a little tour down the rabbit hole to show you the tangled web of rule makers, power brokers, and influencers that are propping up this never-ending Hellscape. As the layers peel away, the more bizarre the story gets. And the answers that emerge are going to make your head spin. Nothing in this Wonderland is quite as it seems.

1776 vs 1789: The Two Bloody Revolutions That Defined How We Think About Wealth in the Modern World

The American and French Revolutions were based on two fundamentally opposite ways of thinking about wealth. These two viewpoints produce two completely different societies and the conflict about which is right forms a long-running debate that goes back centuries. At its heart, it’s a debate about how wealth is created and how it should be divided between the citizens of a country.

(Video) Bystander at the Switch: The Moral Case Against COVID Lockdowns

Do you remember the grade school moral dilemma called the "Bystander at the Switch"?

COVID lockdowns pose the identical dilemma, only this time it's not a game and it's played with real lives. When humanity invented universal human rights, they were meant to stop us from pulling the switch.

Bystander at the Switch: The Moral Case Against COVID Lockdowns

Do you remember the moral riddle taught in grade school called the "Bystander at the Switch" (also known as the Trolley Problem)? It was a story about a runaway train hurtling towards a cluster of people stuck on the tracks ahead. But you have the option to pull the switch and send the train down another track with a smaller number of people on it. You have the option of saving some lives by sacrificing a smaller number of others. Do you pull the switch?

In grade school the riddle was posed as a moral dilemma. But it's not. There was only ever one correct choice. We invented universal human rights to make it clear that no person or government has the right to pull the switch to send the train down another track towards a sacrificial group of victims.

Opinion is Not Evidence, Ignoring Science to Follow Gut Instinct

(Part 1 of Face Masks: A Placebo with Harmful Side Effects)

(This is the first article in a series exploring the science, psychology, and unintended consequences of COVID-19 face masks.) 

~ ~ ~
Our health officials (and the media) have relentlessly promoted face masks as a common-sense solution to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The messaging has been so effective that one jurisdiction after another has adopted mandatory mask laws. Why wouldn't they if wearing them is all upside with little downside? Mask critics are easily dismissed with a little shaming. "So, they're a little uncomfortable, get over it, you could save another person's life!"

If only it was that easy.
