"Truth and Courage" by Randy Vanadisson

“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” ~ Arthur Schopenhauer
“The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.” ~ John F. Kennedy
“If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.” ~ Rene Descartes
Today was intense. A friend of mine in Germany sent a YouTube video of Sara Cunial addressing the Italian Chamber of Deputies (this happened earlier today). Sara graduated in industrial chemistry at the University of Padua and was elected in 2018 to the Italian Chamber of Deputies which is akin to our own federal House of Representatives. Sara is also a member of the 13th Commission for Agriculture in Italy.
Watching this video was like getting punched in the gut. You can feel the passion and fear in her voice. She did her homework and told the truth, with a very sharp knife. It was all encompassing and invoked some scorn. I appreciated that the Italian Prime Minister, Giuseppe Conte, told the other deputies to be quiet until she was finished. Those supporting his demand can be seen clapping behind her. What followed after that admonishment was an act of absolute courage. I was captivated.
Some of my friends actually cried after watching this. Some were inspired to discover the truth themselves and some, unfortunately, are not ready yet. I keep telling myself to plant seeds. It’s the only way. If you come at someone with a club, it will be treated as an assault. A seed is non-threatening. It grows or it does not grow. If it does not, leave it alone and plant another seed down the road. Since I started this blog two weeks ago, two personal friends and a family member have taken the ‘red pill’ and they are hurting, but thankful. It always hurts. That red pill is the hardest thing in the world to swallow and when you do, there is no going back.
The main thing is to keep planting seeds. I don’t claim to have all the answers. When I am wrong, I man-up, admit to the mistake, and make the necessary corrections. If I don’t know the answer, I undertake the research to find the best data to relay the best answer possible, even if it doesn't fit my preconceptions.
The flip side of all this is being disowned, looked down upon or worse, thought of as a ‘conspiracy theorist’ (a blanket term used in defense for someone unwilling or unable to deal with critical, rational, and/or logical questions that challenge an accepted narrative). This is difficult for the ego, especially when you are standing with hard irrefutable evidence that can obliterate a widely accepted narrative. All I can tell you is breathe, stay calm, and hold the line. Keep looking them the eye. Be prepared like Sara was today. She absolutely lit up the world. She definitely lit up Bill Gates, and I am sure there will be consequences for that, but what an inspiration. I love her. We need to follow that path toward the truth. We can’t get to a new beautiful world until we do.
They preach of a ‘new normal’. That’s just a new semantic for ‘new world order’, a necessary change due to growing (and appropriate) negative connotations associated with the words 'world order'. We do need to do things differently in my humble opinion. We were wrecking everything we love – the water, the earth, the forests, the very air we breathe, and our love for each other. We can’t even speak to each other anymore – entire families sitting around their dinner tables, each with an iPhone or iPad shoveling food into theirs mouths, completely unaware of anything outside the little screen they are glued to. Yes, you all know the story - war, famine, poverty, crime, and the terrible unending assault on the individual spirit.
It’s ugly and the technocrats definitely have an answer, but is their idea what you really want – a totalitarian police state – total surveillance of everything you do – everything you say - everyone you see - everything you think – combined with a forced DNA-altering vaccination which hasn’t been properly tested? Will you passively allow Bill Gates to step on your neck and hold your life hostage until he gets what he wants?
For those of you asking the question, What is their idea of a 'new normal'? - The best answer I can give (it really is at the top of my analogies) is the 'Borg' from the television series Star Trek. Remember those guys? Half-human, half-machine saying, "Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated". It is the perfect collectivist model. I truly believe this is what they want, after close to a 95% reduction in the human population.
Everyone has to answer these questions for themselves. I went through a deep depression toward the end of March over these same issues. Once I had it sorted out, life got a little better each day. I’m not taking things for granted anymore. Walks in the forest (like when I was a kid) are precious moments now. I appreciate each day and I am grateful for what I do have, all the way down to my breathing lungs and beating heart.
I could feel Sara’s desperate plea and her rock-solid resolve and courage. She started a fire – a fire among many all over the world right now. We really are in a paradigm shift, but I do not believe the technocrats are assured of victory. There is one variable that cannot be measured by empirical science and predictability – that of the human spirit. The strength of that variable is up to each of us individually, and collectively we can turn the tide, no matter how advanced their technology. The human spirit supersedes this - infinitely.
Watch her and hear the tone of her voice. This is what courage looks like. Open your window to full screen to see the full translation. A powerful moment indeed. Share this everywhere.
Get rid of the hatred and division. Find love. Find unity. Wake up. Have a wonderful weekend.
Much love, Randy
