‘They’ Say “Hindsight is 20/20”
Who are ‘They’?
They say: “Hindsight is 20/20”
They say: “Stay at home order for State of Ohio--…all
individuals currently living within the state of Ohio are ordered to stay at
home …” https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/static/publicorders/Directors-Stay-Safe-Ohio-Order.pdf
They say: “The Intent of the Order is to ensure that the maximum number of people
self-isolate in their places of residence to the maximum extent feasible, while
enabling additional day to day activities to continue, TO SLOW THE SPREAD OF
COVIDE-19 to the greatest extent possible….”
They say: ““Take notice, 18% of the people came
from nursing homes, less than 1% came from jail or prison, 2% came from the
homeless population, 2% from other congregate facilities, but 66% of the people
were at home, which is shocking to us,” Cuomo said.” –https://www.cnbc.com/2020/05/06/ny-gov-cuomo-says-its-shocking-most-new-coronavirus-hospitalizations-are-people-staying-home.html

Who is ‘they’ that we hang our day to day lives
upon? Who are ‘they’ to us that we should acquiesce our good sense? Our life’s
experience. Our own knowledge base. Who are ‘they’ that we would so easily bow
low and follow blindly every edict no matter the consequence?
‘They’ have moved into our lives and rearranged
them so radically that our lives no longer resemble what used to be.
For some time, our culture has flung upon the doors
to emotion. What used to be mostly understood as acceptable decorum in ‘polite
society’, ‘respect for others’, ‘don’t say anything if you cannot say something
nice/positive’, ‘do onto others as you would have them do unto you’. Now, we
have emotions driving every facet of culture and if you turn your head and look
out for a moment you may notice it is negative emotions that moved into the lead.
Hatred and anger are now reflected by a substantial number of people from all
walks of life.
To catch up on what exactly happened to change the
mood of a nation -- and to some extent a world -- let’s be frank. The current
president of the United States has garnered and galvanized quite a following of
persons who have allowed their words and actions to deny and devalue their own
alleged principles. What happened to no hate? Surely you know many who now
routinely indulge in hate towards him. When you remark they are supposed to be
accepting, tolerant, inclusive not hating ‘they’ respond it is not hating but disdain
or strong dislike -- but hate drives
people to abandon long held ideals when they wish ill upon him or by extension anyone
who says anything positive about him. Yet, the emotional fatigue many are
beginning to complain is causing physical, psychological, and emotional damage
to themselves which shows they spend way too much negative energy over a man
who holds an office for 4-8 years, a man they categorically vehemently detest.
Then there were those who were out in black masks
and gear beating up and threatening seniors and young people who support the
object of disdain that drove the angry mob’s hatred. Again, people are getting
hurt by the free flow of anger with no public pressure to stop.
The economy was on full blast humming along; more
people had jobs than in any other time; trade with different countries was
being overhauled to bring equitable balance to Americans who until this time
had been hemorrhaging money and jobs to foreign entities. Trump doesn’t play
well with the globalist elite who had a plan they felt was progressing along as
well UNTIL he took office. After his election other countries followed suit
electing nationalist based leadership.
With all of this an equalizer had to happen. To
capitalize on the ‘emotion’ led cultures around the world, primarily in the
western nations, FEAR was given a megadose injection into societies all over
the globe and with that the world came to a stop. Reversal of fortunes,
cessation of free practice of religion, the attempt to literally muzzle the
muzzles of firearms, cessation of free movement whenever and wherever
unencumbered converted to stay at home orders. Who exactly are ‘they’ to step
out of the screen on your device and hold you hostage to their edict?
The key to understanding
Hindsight is the cumulative bibliography of all
things related to the answer of who ‘they’ are.
In 2008, a call went out from Public Health in
different places for volunteers to become part of a newly formed Medical
Reserve Corps [MRC]. These volunteers would be from the healthcare field and
would be able to administer flu shots/sprays if asked to, would be called to
assist if available during a mass injury disaster, to assist in communities
separated from others from disaster related events. Those who attended the
initial meet and greet a power point presentation we heard from the Director of
Public Health in the state this author lived which included the definition of
pandemic and the introduction of how a quarantine might be ordered/necessary in
the event of a pandemic.
In 2017, Dr. Fauci is on record as saying this: ““If
there’s one message that I want to leave with you today based on my experience,
it is that there is no question that there will be a challenge to the coming
administration in the arena of infectious diseases,” Fauci said.” https://gumc.georgetown.edu/gumc-stories/global-health-experts-advise-advance-planning-for-inevitable-pandemic/
Trump was sworn into office January 20, 2017, 8
days after that announcement. Dr. Fauci served five presidencies according to
the article. But this administration will be challenged.
On October 2019 a table top exercise at John Hopkins
Center for Health Security ‘Event 201’ gamed out a ‘pandemic’ as their

This is merely a tip of the tip of an iceberg of
who comprises the authoritative ‘they’ that seem to govern the people apart
from the ideology expressed in our Constitution: The government DERIVES it’s
power from the people.
This article merely covers our current invasion of
anti-rights, anti-freedom edict and dictates from the folks who today, and at
least from the beginning of March of this year, make up ‘they’. Once more, for
emphasis, we allowed ourselves to consider the greater good as “they” explained
why it was necessary to take unparalleled reach from the Nation’s Capitol down
deep into the lives of all Americans sequestered in our respective domiciles
with rare exceptions to depart on specially approved errands. And, further heavy-handed
restraints that while out and about on your ‘approved’ errand you were to be
mindful of maintaining ‘social’ distance together with the ever changing on-with-the-mask-off-with-the-mask-
on-with-the-mask-AGAIN stipulations. We did that despite many of us feeling
that deep-down ring of our internal ‘Liberty Bell’.
We all began to release the pent-up air from our diaphragms
as we awaited the next message ‘they” would be uttering to ostensibly release
us from self-incarceration to the routine that was our lives before THEY devitalized
From that date to now the original group of ‘they’
have grown to include local and state government officials some of whom have long
held latent precepts of their respective authority. Those included power grabs via
a coup of immediate mandates that tight fistedly ruled our roost! Now the depth
of our internal drive to live free surfaced all the way to our mind’s eye as oppressive,
even extreme injunctions against our free roam tendencies, our way of life, our
routine, our abilities to provide for our families and selves in no way measuring
up to our former recently past lives. ‘They’ now cleverly moved the chess
pieces of our lives around and introduced us to the ‘NEW’ normal.
ONLY by consent do we give authority over our
lives to the rules ‘they’ wish to enforce. When we have demonstrated good citizenship
by initially considering our neighbor, loving them as we love ourselves, the ‘old
normal’ golden rule but the rules of our lives under ‘their’ dominion did not
suffice the rules became burdensome, fully restrictive, tyrannical in reality.
Now we begin to use Constitutional authority granted to us to move the influence
of those regulations away from our family reestablishing the routine that cohesively
binds us to our family, neighbors, and community.
The drone of the 1st amendment rights
may annoy many, but those rights are to be secured by the government. If ‘they’
[the governments] operate outside of the authority of the US Constitution and
we the subjugated relent to what ‘they’
demand then we have the answer as to who ‘they’ are and we get what we give in
the way of direct or tacit approval—a country with rights on an ancient piece
of paper with no power drawn from them as they sit in the National Archives
preserved for all posterity to see what used to be.
If on the other hand, we decide not to be crushed
until the liberty is eked out of every pore in our bodies by trying to reason
with the existing authority via communications then the other part of the 1st
amendment which is the ‘right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition
the Government for redress of grievances.’ is our answer. With freedom of speech and freedom of religion
being truncated and freedom of press being exploited via biased narratives we
engage last things left to us; publicly call attention to the untenable – or illogical
disfunction of the prevailing governments by trying to urge them to return to
the ‘rule of order’ as codified in the US Constitution and the associated Bill
of Rights. In so doing, remember, the 1st Amendment uses the word ‘peaceably’
in the people assembled.
Let us be the united ‘they’ to the government and
reclaim our NORMAL routine not some reimagined or transformed ‘New’ normal. Liberty
is not negotiable; Freedoms cannot be transformed or reimagined. Opiniated, but
