Still free to choose to be positive?

The very first word of my story (Chapter 3) in my first book SP/SS was/is “Freedom”.

Is ‘freedom’, “…just some people talking” and a meaningless idea, when we consider we are, kind of, living in a matrix? A matrix in which we need to fit in with billions of other people and where our choices always have some effect on… on? Not just those closest to us but on everyone, in this interconnected world.

I am able to imagine freedom on a scale from seemingly none to lots.

I did not appreciate how much freedom I had in the UK prior to the first lock-down in 2020. Now, 18 months on, I perhaps have even more freedom as I have largely stopped caring that many people see me as ‘a nut’, ‘ a mad professor’ and more recently as a ‘crazy-anti-vaxxer’.

What the lockdown did to me was to create the fear that almost all my freedoms could be lost in the blink of an eye. Not just through being told to stay indoors but through the kind of censorship that is being imposed on MSM, FB and YouTube.

How much longer will I be allowed to share my thoughts and feelings here?

Many people now fear a virus that cannot be seen, has never been isolated and that without the aid of a long swab or face mask, tends to stay in the throat and be eliminated by our natural immunity. Others have the kind of fear that I have. This is about what may happen if we dare to share truths that the majority do not want to hear. If only it were just one virus we had to fear!

I was inspired to write the above after listening to the historian, Neil Oliver, talk about freedom in this 6 minute monologue, shared via GBNews, on or about 1st August 2021, which is still available to listen to as I write this.

Neil Oliver: For the sake of freedom – yours and mine – I will cheerfully risk catching Covid-19
