This testimonial of events at Evergreen College in Washington State is extremely important on the freedom vs authoritarian rule front. The events at Evergreen pushed a tenured professor, Bret Weinstein, off campus, out of a job and into the public discourse. Weinstein’s loss of a job is indicative of a canary dying in a the coal mine that is freedom in the United States. The thinking that forced Weinstein out of his job is Bernays psychology in insidious form. Group think.
Most insidious is Weinstein’s experience of the difference in meaning behind the use of the word “safespace.” This “doublespeak” embodied in one word is indicative of a very dangerous authoritarian wave of zeitgeist that is driving wild “tribalism” in our society today. Tribalism that ranks on a level of events found in the book Lord of the Flies. This screams to me that Piggy is going to die, and it isn’t the Piggy one would think it will be.
In my humble opinion, if the public as a whole does not evolve into free independent critical thinkers who question authority with truly open eyes awake to changes in our system being forwarded it is going to find itself “fooled again.” How we improve and or destroy the fair equitable lives of all life is on us all and mankind is at a crossroads.

The thinking at work, Weinstein says, is a “tearing down” ripping society apart without offering solutions. The thinking BLM and the Woke movements are putting forward will not “finish the project” that is the West. We already have the right societal base of values in the focus on liberty in the West. After all the only way to be truly liberated is to address all the issues that infringe on liberty and in so correcting them further the cause of liberty in society. The original call of a liberty movement is to make sure that distribution of opportunity and distribution of resources is fair, you can not have that if free speech is not protected.
Stay aware, pay attention and choose honor.
