When asked about the restrictive, oppressive measures the government had imposed on all citizens and later exclusively on non-pecked citizens, my colleague merely shrugged. To change the subject, he described how he traveled to Budapest to participate in the government's annual march this past weekend.
The event -- canceled twice in the past two years due to the birdemic -- usually takes place on the national holiday commemorating the failed Hungarian Revolution of 1848, but it has little to do with history and far more to do with displaying pro-government support in the present. Past marches were dubbed Freedom Marches.
The current military trouble in Hungary's eastern neighbor ensured this year's march bucked tradition and became a Peace March instead. Apparently, more than half-a-million Hungarians showed up for the event.
After it had committed itself to the global diktat of none are safe until all are safe, the Hungarian government engaged in a relentless and ruthless campaign against its citizenry. It locked them down; social-distanced them; terrorized them; propagandized them; and lied to them. It stripped them of their supposed natural and human rights. It shut down businesses. It promised the pecks would end the birdemic and then manipulated and coerced the citizenry into taking the peck. It denied people the right to assemble, travel, visit, work, and speak. It engaged in all of this for over two years, and how do people respond?
By confirming their allegiance, loyalty, and subservience to the very same powers that have lied to, oppressed, humiliated, and harmed them. Of course, a change of government would solve nothing. It could make things even worse. Such is the nature of our cherished democracies, all of which are now beholden to the global coup.
My colleague, who willingly complied with the peck to alleviate his fear, is not disturbed by the supposed birdemic bug infections that have plagued many of our other triple-pecked colleagues. He doesn’t seem to remember that the government had sold the peck as a preventative measure.
The vast majority of those recently-infected triple-pecked colleagues spend their time researching and writing articles about the dangers of climate change and the necessity of sustainability measures.
One recently wrote an article about how such sustainability measures can be most effectively communicated to the public to “change hearts and minds”. I know this because part of my job involves proofreading such articles to increase their chances of being published in respectable, high impact factor journals. Such is the nature of my resistant complicity in the destruction – complicity for which I find myself endlessly repenting.
I often write about co-creation on this blog – about man’s need to align himself with God and work with Him creatively, but I see very little evidence of that in my daily life.
On the contrary, I see man’s enthusiastic alignment with the System and evil. Rather than contemplate co-creation, man appears perfectly content to willingly engage in co-destruction.
Moreover, modern man seems incapable of doing anything else. The destruction seems assured. If that is the case, then co-creation in this world will be synonymous with resurrection.
