As we bid farewell to 2023, a year that has once again carved its own place in the historical narrative, it's fitting to reflect on the significant themes that have unfolded. One term that echoes through the corridors of this year is the "Great Awakening." It's a testament to the increasing number of individuals waking up to the harsh reality that our governing systems, institutions, and the world we once knew are no longer functioning as they should.
This awakening is heartening, witnessing millions of people, once naive, perhaps even gullible, engage more critically with their surroundings. Yet, within this positive surge, there lies a bitter truth—we are insufficiently realizing that within our existing democratic framework, battling the globalist agenda is an increasingly futile endeavor. While figures like Robert Malone have joined WAIT, and the late William Rusher, in highlighting the threat to sovereignty posed by the United Nations, practical solutions seem elusive.
Unfortunately, most people are unaware of, or deny, the implications that we have no impartial legal basis to take refuge from the latent tyranny of this organization, which has completely permeated our Western societies, and has supplanted the Westphalian principle of national sovereignty. There seems to be a collective blind spot—an inability to acknowledge that fighting the globalist agenda from within our current democratic systems is doomed for failure. The sooner we acknowledge this harsh fact, the better it is, for much worse is yet to come:
Upcoming amendments in 2024 to International Health Regulations will “place the WHO as having rights overriding that of individuals, erasing the basic principles developed after World War Two regarding human rights and the sovereignty of States.”
The second notable development of the year was Elon Musk's acquisition of Twitter in October 2022, now rebranded as X. This move, monumental in itself, allowed Musk to push back against the onslaught on free speech. The revelations about Twitter's internal mechanisms, including collaborations with Stanford University for state censorship, have brought to light the depth of the challenges we face in preserving fundamental rights.
These revelations emphasize the importance of the World Alliance of Independent Thinkers (WAIT) and its unique contributions. For over a year, WAIT has been advocating for a strategic way out of the grip of the globalist agenda through its five-point roadmap. It addresses the root causes and offers a viable solution. It is in this light that I am grateful to Jeremy Nell for his invitation on the TNT radio show Jerm Warfare, in September of this year. It allowed me to expand on my interpretation of current affairs and my motivation for launching WAIT. If you haven't had the opportunity to listen to it yet, you can access it here.
A republic, if you can keep it.
One critical aspect underpinning the philosophy of the World Alliance of Independent Thinkers is the ultimate realization that the Declaration of Independence of 1776 of the United States is most likely the pinnacle of modern democratic governance. The fragility of that idealistic form of government is not to be underestimated. The most telling example revealed itself just 11 years after the US kickstarted their independence, when in 1787 Elizabeth Willing Powel asked Dr. Benjamin Franklin, then governor of Pennsylvania, if they had a republic or a monarchy. The ominous and famous answer was "a republic, if you can keep it".
While the United States is not without its faults (that is an understatement) the resistance to the globalist push seen primarily in states like Texas and Florida is not a weakness but a testament to the strength of the "land of the free". Rather than advocating for less, perhaps what the world needs is more of it—a return to its genesis, to the principles of the spirit and wisdom of the Founding Fathers, a return to elevating our system of governance under God, recognizing all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, even though much of its ideals appear to have been compromised along the way.
This year has also seen a massive increase in new Independent Thinkers. While I'm grateful for the hundreds of new members who have joined WAIT simply by signing up, this is a call for help. If you resonate with our cause and feel you can contribute in any way—be it through ideas, time, or financial support—reach out. Your involvement in any form is invaluable.
We find ourselves in a fight between good and evil.
As we stand at the threshold of a new year, let's continue raising our voices, standing together, and working towards an exit from the complexities we find ourselves in. The powerful forces orchestrating behind the curtain have revealed their intentions, considering people as nothing more than economic entities, if at all. The push towards technocracy is daunting, and at times, hope seems futile. Indeed, we find ourselves in a fight between good and evil, and once you are aware of this, sitting on the sidelines is not an option.
In conclusion, as we navigate the complexities of the coming year, let's remember that the fight for democracy is an ongoing effort. The echoes of Franklin's words remind us that the responsibility to uphold a democratic form of governance lies with each generation. May 2024 be a year where we not only awaken to the challenges but actively work towards a future where democracy thrives.
