I could really relate to this subject. You touched on everything I've been thinking and feeling for years now. I hate it when folks keep using the phrase "the pandemic" I feel like saying "the only pandemic right now is stupidity" - which is a line I got from Dr. Vernon Coleman. I realize there is a virus, but at this point it's certainly not a pandemic, nor do I believe it ever was! Very few people have even heard about the Great Reset! Something I hate hearing from friends and neighbors is "Oh well, there is nothing I can do about it, so I'm not going to worry about it" - That is exactly what the global predators are hoping we are feeling. Most of the people I respect nowadays say they are looking to do something to make a difference. That is what we need right now! If we all do a little bit it will add up. Most people are just plain oblivious to everything that is going on. Yet during the Johnny Depp trial so many people seemed to be obsessed with watching it and following it. I didn't even know what the suit was about, I was too busy reading Substack and books and doing my own "research". I am so grateful for Substack and the commenters - it keeps a lot of us sane in an insane world!

My dear Kathleen. You have written what I’ve been thinking. (Thank you for making me laugh out loud) I find myself continually wondering while I’m out in public looking around and wondering - how many of these people truly know what’s going on. I want to scream from the rooftops - wake the fuck up people! Do you have ANY IDEA what our world might look like in the not so distant future? I find having conversations with fast asleep people (some are friends and family) to be shallow and full of bullshit. Keeping my mouth shut when someone tells me she’s got cancer and her spouse is also sick with God knows what (they’ve had at least 3 if not 4 shots). Hearing from my zombie friend that a 28 year old young man died suddenly. They are awaiting an autopsy. When she tells me they don’t know what caused it I plan on telling her I know EXACTLY what caused it. I really don’t give a shit if she thinks I’m nuts. Although I may indeed be because my mental state has had a serious toll taken on it this past year. Thank the Lord I found a wide awake counselor because I need to keep my sanity in all this. It’s fucking psychological torture. God help us all to just be ourselves. God bless you Kathleen. It’s so affirming to have kindred spirits in this fight for our lives and more importantly, the lives of our children and grandchildren.

I'm afraid if enough sleep through this "revolution" we'll awaken with synthetic versions of ourselves, robots at all the service jobs, fake food the norm, and very narrow lanes for your thoughts to drive in or else...

Your voice (and those in the comments) are both welcomed as I come in from time in the dirt, moving rocks, talking to them, planting moss and small native plants between them. I'm so in love with the earth and her rocks, it's my saving grace through these times. Okay, my husband & cat help too. So many friends have fallen away and rocks seem to replace them. But I need to hear other humans out there who are standing up, these humans, reading you and speaking out. Thank you for what you are doing!!!

Great post, Kathleen. It expresses my feelings perfectly. I had a similar experience with a friend recently. Unlike your friend, mine is steadfastly asleep. "Let's get carrot cake at that nice cafe soon," she said after my latest rant about these rubbish injections. It was infuriating. She is determined to live her life as if the last few years never happened, as do most people I know. I find it unfathomably sad and excruciatingly cowardly in equal measure. Thus, conversations are superficial and tedious because, as you say, most people are not really here and they are most certainly avoiding the most important conversation of all -- that humanity is facing an existential threat. They simply do not (or will not) see it. The thing is, this is the only thing worth talking about now. I have zero interest in discussing their latest holidays, new jobs, or botox injections. Whatever happens, I am going down fighting.

Thank you for this essay.

I have a friend who simply will not discuss anything negative - we must just stay positive and discuss ‘upbeat’ things and whereas I do not believe in wallowing in the negative, these ugly facts cannot be ignored. She followed all the rules in order to travel to see her elderly father in a neighbouring country and took all her ‘medicine’ to be allowed into his nursing home. She would have said that she had absolutely no choice but cannot see that these actions to help her father will have negative consequences for her beloved daughters and the granddaughter she adores. She will not see that her conformity may contribute to her granddaughter having a much smaller, more limited life than she has had. Trying to point any of this out to anyone has met with blank stares. I had many conversations in 2020 with people about where we were heading. I never imagined that in late 2022 that they still wouldn’t have caught on!

Ecclesiastes 3:1 "To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven."

Ecclesiastes 3:7 "A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak."

If ever there were a time to speak (Preach?), the time is now. Make no apologies, Kathleen.

Returning to Martin Luther King, Jr. "In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."

I think it was about a year ago or even two now I learned the term NPC from my son. I said, "what's that?" It stands for Non Player Character. These are the people in video games that are there, more as scenery, but they can't/don't move the game along at all. The shop keeper. The people eating in a cafe. We are surrounded by NPC in real life.

Thanks SO much for writing this. My very intelligent brother whom I love and whom I have supported and defended my whole life (he's 7 years younger) criticised my 17yr old for not vxng. I explained why not, risk/benefit for that age group etc I tried to explain how hard it was for him to go into school as the only unvxd when teachers and peers were singling him out constantly. My brother's response was to cut me off, laugh at me and call me a conspiracy theorist. I hadn't even started!! I now realise that it was his pumpkin latte moment. And that my crying for hours over how much he hurt me, is my hair-on-the-way-to-the-gallows moment; my complete self absorption was ridiculous! Everything you wrote speaks to me and I feel better equipped to put this into perspective. I appreciate it.

appropriate use of 4 letter words, you kept me laughing. I see this not wanting to rock relationships in those around me. they do not want to say something to the blind ones they love for fear of souring the relationship. Is that love?? they get to have a relationship for a few years (maybe) while the loved ones walk off the cliff, then where is the relationship??

love your post, there should be a love button along with the like button, or even an AMEN button.

Kathleen, I find this to be one of the most difficult things I have ever done in my life. My wife's entire family is vaxxed, (she is the oldest of seven children) on the advice of her brother who is a fire chief for the county. Since his opinion was "expert" they all proceeded as if they had blessings from some "medical authority" figure since he also manages the EMS population of first responders for the county. Getting any of them to pay attention is totally frustrating and exhausting. I have had so many "Latte" moments that it has really challanged my sanity. Sometimes my wife (she is totatlly with me on this subject) and I feel like black sheep and it is depressing and sad. On a more positive note we have been successful with my daughters and their families, so my 17 Grand Children have been spared this horror much to our relief. I am so happy you published this article since it gives me hope. I have already sent it to as many people in my family as I can it hopes that they will read it, wake up, and do something to protect themselves and their children from this demonic plan. We must all stand up, there is no other option on the table that makes sense. Only "we" can help us!

e. e. (come on) cummings agrees

with you as do I

To Be You To Full

is beautiful

And as Rumi ruminates

“Let the beauty we love be what we do”.

Well penned and purged Kath,

You are wearing your name

Be You To Fully,


Stay strong, safe and ever free.

"To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting." e.e. cummings (yes, he liked the wee wee lettering, Big Time Individualist such that his Me was a We.

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is a hard business. If you try it, you'll be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." Rudyard Kipling

"It is the individual only who is timeless. If in some manner the voice of an individual reaches us from the remotest distance of time, it is a timeless voice speaking about ourselves." Eric Hoffer

“How much easier is self-sacrifice than self-realization. The short-lived self, teetering on the edge of irrevocable extinction, is the only thing that can ever really matter. Thus the renunciation of the self is felt as a liberation and salvation.” Eric Hoffer

Oh, my dear Kathleen, I LOL’d a few times. I am absolutely stealing your response to anyone who ever asks me about being jabbed.

Btw, not sure if it’s a glitch with kofi or what, but it wouldn’t process two forms of payment until it finally let me use a third. And I had to jump through some security hoops to prove my identity. I don’t think I’ve had to do that before while donating through Kofi.

Anyway, this was one of my favourites you’ve written. There are many many many of those asking how their hair looks on their way to the gallows (spot on analogy). Keep talking, keep writing, keep creating, keep singing, keep painting, keep exposing, keep pointing at the emperors, keep on keeping on.

You nailed it once again. After reading this Hubs and I had a talk. About this. I am amazed how many goodhearted people just went along to travel or whatever. They are making us powerless in the face of our own fear and using us as the enemy against our own humanity.
