Let’s All Stand Back and Look at The Big Picture…
A recent issue arose which I believe highlights a weakness in our “health care activist” community. We are attempting to create a MASSIVE POPULAR CHANGE in health care and too many people are letting BAD PRACTICES get in the way of victory.
A long-time activist made a mistake about a news story and expressed his opinion in strong terms. He apologized for his mistake.
What seemed to follow was first an attempt to cut off that activist, then when that backfired, the website decided not to cover the vaccine issue at all.
Everybody seems to be mad at each other.
I’d like to suggest a simple rule which I believe will help all of us. If somebody makes a mistake, then apologizes, the apology is accepted and we move on.
I think far too many people are living in mental prisons which make them believe if they do not agree with a person’s opinion, or that person makes a mistake, that individual must be banished.
Revolutions are not won by decimating your own side.
Revolutions are won by gathering your strongest fighters. (Hint – The strongest fighters are usually the ones who have what might be called “dragon energy.” I understand that may scare some people on our side. Dragons can be scary. However, the objective is to TERRIFY the other side. Dragons are REALLY GOOD FOR THAT.)
I have had such experience with being banished.
Let’s just say there was Group A that I worked with for many years, and was instrumental in founding.
I’ve always believed the key to winning is getting as many people on the same side and moving in the same direction. I will declare before you and Almighty God I don’t know the best way to defeat pharma. Which is why I listen to people.
I have always been an independent writer, willing to write articles about issues which interest me, for people who are willing to publish them.
I was approached by somebody from Group B, who asked if I would write some articles for his web-site. I said sure. It’s what I do. (And nobody is paying me. Get it? I’m working for FREE for both Group A and Group B.)
I got an email from the leader of Group A, saying I couldn’t continue to write articles for Group A, if I also wrote articles for Group B.
“Why not?” I asked.
“He said mean things about the way we were fighting.”
“Have we won the fight?” I asked.
“Then maybe we should listen. We might learn something.”
“But he’s really nasty,” said the leader of Group A.
“And he thinks the way we’ve been doing some things are stupid. I think we can make much better progress if I act as a bridge, and see what might happen if we work together.”
I love those stories, like Lord of the Rings, or the Avengers movies, where many different groups come together to fight a common enemy. I’m a sucker for any story with even a hint of coming together for a common good. For me, it is nothing less than a test of whether our species deserves the right to exist in the future.
“I forbid it,” said the leader of Group A. “You must write for us, or for him. There can be no sharing.”
“The leader of Group B isn’t putting any conditions on me,” I replied. “He’s fine with me writing for you and him.”
“Too bad. It’s us or them,” said the leader of Group A.
I tried to continue the discussion, pointing out that even though Captain America and Iron Man had different points of views, I still considered them both to be Avengers. Why couldn’t we do things in a similar vein?
The leader of Group A would have none of it.
And so I was banished from Group A, which I had helped found and for whom I had written more than 150 articles.
Do you think I am causing more controversy by bringing up this story at this time? Am I weakening the community?
I say I am doing exactly the opposite. There is rarely a bad time to tell the truth, or to encourage people to escape from their mental prisons.
I am encouraging those of you who like Group A, to continue to like Group A. There are many fine people associated with Group A, even the person who banished me. If Group A asked me to write an article tomorrow, I would happily do it.
However, I will not be told which people I must avoid in order to be on the team. That’s just a non-starter with me.
What I hope is that from several different groups there will emerge a new team which welcomes the greatest warriors. If you are fighting pharma and trying to bring about a new world of health freedom and truth, I will fight alongside you. I welcome you as a friend.
I don’t even mind if you tell me everything I am doing is wrong.
Just don’t get offended if I make criticisms of you as well.
Warriors figure out the best way to fight. Not the best way to keep their feelings from being hurt.
Then those warriors go out and WIN!
