The Autonomy Illusion

Definition of autonomy from Mariam-Webster dictionary

1: the quality or state of being self-governing especially : the right of self-government.

2: self-directing freedom and especially moral independence-personal autonomy

3: a self-governing state

The current transformation toward World “Liberal” Governance will destroy our US Constitution and the protections we enjoy for our individual autonomy. This is “No joke” as President Biden would say…In fact his current administrative State supports this proposition!

A “Liberal” according to the same Mariam-Webster dictionary is one who is open-minded or not strict in the observance of orthodox, traditional, or established forms or ways. When the term is used politically it is a philosophy based on the belief in progress, the essential goodness of the human race, the autonomy of the individual, and government as a crucial instrument for the protection of political and civil liberties. Sounds great doesn’t it! However this definition isn’t exactly what the U.S. is bargaining for with a “Liberal” World Government. Our traditions are being transformed, but to what? Are our political and civil liberties really being protected? And if the human race is essentially good, why even bother with checks and balances or defining what it is to be “bad”? Is my morality also like your morality?

For autonomy to work well, morals must be front and center. Morals are relayed in several ways…Biblically, traditionally and authoritatively. Many times one way will build off of another to help reinforce morals. Success is most often achieved through early life lessons. Otherwise obtaining and maintaining a new moral system can be exceptionally difficult, in fact doing this can become quite tyrannical.

Education is the next extremely important ingredient for autonomy. We are all imperfect and make mistakes, but there are people and events that have come before us that can provide excellent examples to educate ourselves to do what is right and kind rather than what is wrong and mean. History can repeat itself whether it’s yours or a society’s. We must learn from these examples in order to progress to that which is better. The Bible, our shared cultural traditions, and our system of law and order are American anchors of stability which the authority (aka tyranny) of a New World Order will not accept.

Finally, a world system of governance would be fraught with failure. We can see this in some of our own federally run programs. Waste, fraud and corruption are easily hidden in the labyrinth of unionized government employment and bureaucracy. Blow a whistle and you will lose your job and status. Hold the line and make no waves and you will receive a kickback. Ethics and morals are out the window! Self-governance happens best when implemented small and local. I know this because I’ve served as a city councilor after being part of a community “watchdog” group to rein in astronomical property tax increases. When government officials actually have the opportunity to meet their constituents then it’s easier to hold these officials accountable. How the heck would you or I be able to hold a world bureaucracy accountable when we can’t even get our elected representatives to solve our nation’s problems? Bigger government leads to more unaccountable incompetence.

Local control of elected and appointed officials is critical to America’s success as a nation.

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” This preamble had you and me in mind when it was written by men who yearned to be free from religious and political tyranny. We must not allow our individual autonomy to be made an illusion by the current men and women who yearn to create a world that is free from want while forgetting that their self aggrandizement has a sub-optimal effect on others. Tyranny is sure to follow and Liberty will be hard to win back again. Liberal World Government will bring division rather than unity, war rather than peace, and secrecy rather than transparency. How moral is that!?

Citizens as Pawns

I pray daily for the Ukrainian people. The heinous actions by their neighbor dictator are unspeakable and irrational. Who can explain the events leading up to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine? The rational side of my intelligence really wants to know the answer to this question because nothing I hear squares as truthful.

What do I know about Ukraine? Actually, very little. If I educate myself by going online, I hope that the sources are factual. We all know that the region has been through centuries of conflict. We all thought that agreements after WW2 would help stabilize the region and perhaps they did in many ways. But how can we stabilize a tyrannical neighbor? We can not unless we first acknowledge our lack of control over their destructive behavior toward their own citizens and the world community.

National sovereignty is at the forefront of this issue. This term emphasizes complete independence and self-government in a country. Each nation has the right to exercise their sovereignty which can be quite different from one to the other. Most agreements among nations cannot deny this sovereignty. There is quite a range of opinion concerning how nations implement their governance, but ultimately one’s opinion can remain only that. To force an opinion can lead to unforeseen consequences. I believe this is what Putin has done with Ukraine.

Rational thinking about the breach of Ukraine’s sovereignty by Putin would lead one to the conclusion that Putin is a terrorist. Any leader who completely controls their nation’s journalists also controls the nationalist message. We know this because this was why the Democratic Party in our country worked so hard to label Trump as a nationalist who was working to destroy the media and our democracy. Why would they push this narrative? For their own power play of course. This unfortunate power play put citizens in the position of being pawns. No one wants to be used by others for any purpose, let alone to have their own personal power diminished in any way by that “user”. We would call that user an abuser, and abusers can be found in any race or gender…It’s a human trait.

With the Trump example, the narrative in the main stream news consistently labeled him a nationalist, misogynistic, pawn of Putin and a Nazi. And it wasn’t long until his supporters were included in this label too, making them pawns also in the progressive’s play for power. How is this abusive take down of a duly elected President and his supporters any different from Putin’s power grab in Ukraine? It is not.

Canada’s elites aren’t the only globalist soldiers.

But there is more to the picture in Ukraine’s torment just as there was to the incessant take down of the last administration. Global hegemony is slowly breaking apart the cultural fabric of sovereign nations and it is the citizens of these nations who are pawns in their strategies. I don’t have any proof beyond what is written on such websites as the World Economic Forum, International Financing Corporation (part of the World Bank Group), Federal Reserve, IMF and the many NGOs associated with them. These organizations are working to connect us all, whether we want it or not, in a global framework of compliance which no nation, company or individual will be able to not obey. Do you think Putin wants Russia to obey this entity? Do you perhaps think that Trump’s America First agenda was to confront and remove the USA from this entity? If Ukraine became part of NATO but more importantly part of the EU would it be fair to think that they would have to comply with this Global plan hence Putin’s annexation to “save” them?

Only time will tell. Until that time we all must educate ourselves about what progressives and globalists are communicating to us through word and deed. When our southern border is wide open to unrestricted immigrant crossings, when the Biden administration is slow to place sanctions on Russia or provide lethal aid to Ukraine, when the EU is placing monetary sanctions on Poland and Hungary because they “violate” the agreed upon values even though these two countries have taken in the most Ukrainian refugees, then we have innocent lives used as pawns for power plays.

It’s time for citizens as individuals to take back their personal power and call out all abusers who aim to destroy civil liberties. Climate change is not our enemy. Evil bureaucrats are.
