    Interesting back-and-forth between Rip and Subby. A clarification:

    Subby defines freedom thus: In this instance I am using "freedoms" as a catch all term for the right of citizens to live free of government interference at a macro level.

    How do you define freedoms Rip for the purposes of this debate?

Northwestern Mutual is a major life insurance company, but they haven't made any public statements about an increase in mortality yet. I believe MetLife has made an offhand comment about it, and the need to reprice their group plans to offset the rise in mortality.
    I think Davison made the point that the increased mortality was probably due to all causes created by the response to the "pandemic," including the vaccines, greatly reduced access to medical services and the attendant delay in diagnoses of serious illnesses, social isolation and the psychological effects, drug and alcohol abuse due to stress and boredom, and several other things I can't think of right now. If Kirsch wants to blame it all on the vaccines, that would be kinda typical, but incomplete.

    I would extend that definition down to the micro level, to the point where my exercise would infringe on the rights of others to do the same. You?

    Do you, like, really believe this or are you just fucking with us?

    Freedom for me in this life rather than a philosophical definition:

    To be able to vote who governs my country in a non-rigged election and thus live my life free to adhere to or break ANY law I choose while knowing the consequences for the latter are the same for everyone.

    Rip, can you name any countries in the West where you believe their election isn’t rigged?

    I can't. I don't have that level of data.

    That would be a matter for the courts to decide. But what does it look like if it does bypass Posse Comitatus? FEMA comes up my driveway to confiscate my guns, and because the Insurrection Act says FEMA can do this I just welcome them into the house, hand them all my guns and ammo, and make tea for them while they load them up? Because FEMA has been given the "authority" to enslave my ass? The only person who can give a free man the authority to enslave him is that man himself.

    You people just don't understand. You are Subjects of the Crown. Pointless to try.

    I am on the fence, which is why I asked the question, I don't want to be trolled into a bullshit book. Why?

    Your tone suggested that you had information.
