There is a writer by the name of Nassim Nicholas Taleb who wrote a book called “Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder.” The thesis of his book is that thriving is not about being robust enough to survive stress but rather being adaptable enough to improve your life in the face of stress.
Well, if he is right, we are about to be blessed with the opportunity to prove just how adaptable we truly are. Now that the Supreme Court has abandoned us to the thugocracy we can expect amazing things from our government. And if the Georgia elections go half as badly as the presidential elections did in that state, we are going to see stuff that would test the patience of Job.
I expect executive orders attacking the first and second amendments to be forthcoming from the Lying Sack of Crap Elect who is hoping to start infesting the White House in January. He will attack religion, free speech and guns with every weapon at his disposal. Hopefully some of those federal judges that President Trump installed will show themselves of some use and block these orders as unconstitutional but that’s yet to be seen.
I also expect the Justice Department to resume the BLM support activism that we saw under the former thug Obama. That means that any Red State that tries to squelch BLM rioting in its jurisdiction will be harassed by the FBI and the Attorney General’s office.
And I’m assuming that the anti-trust investigations against Google, Facebook and Twitter will be curtailed or rather the investigations will center on why any conservative views are being expressed on these platforms at all. It wouldn’t surprise me to see federal banking policy embrace the idea of banks punishing individual citizens who have espoused ideas that the Left does not approve of. I mean why stop at canceling someone’s VISA card or PayPal account? Why shouldn’t the federal government coordinate denying all bank access to such terrible people. All they’d have to do is write it into some banking policy and the banks will be only too happy to follow in lock step. Folks like me who run a tiny blog site have been more or less invisible or uninteresting to the powers that be. But in the days ahead they may decide that to be fair, every sinner should be made to suffer equally. So, who knows I may find myself de-platformed too.
And there could be even bigger fish to fry too. The goons on the Left have threatened to pack the Supreme Court. If they do, I wouldn’t be surprised if they then went whole hog and used a rubber stamp SCOTUS to discover that the First and Second Amendments don’t actually mean anything at all. At that point we would get a close up look at what living in Venezuela is all about.
Why am I saying all this? Because even these things do not represent the end of the world. What they would represent are the acts of an illegitimate government attempting to destroy the freedoms that were enshrined in the US Constitution. And I think that there will be a violent reaction to what has gone on for the last year. I expect that the fraudulent election of the Lying Sack of Crap (Biden) will spark a level of outrage in the country that we haven’t seen before. I wholly expect state governments to initiate action to insulate themselves from the harmful executive orders that the Lying Sack of Crap and his henchmen will instigate.
What I am suggesting to the readers here is that it is wise to look for ways to avoid being harmed by the terrible things that will be going on. Find ways to shield you, your family and friends from the negative consequences of these things. Be smart, inventive and maybe even work some of these things to your advantage. I intend to promote products and services that will be sought after on our side of the fence. Maybe you can think of filling a need that is unfilled because of the social media censorship. Be creative. Don’t just survive, thrive.
