It's Happening - Freedom
There are many acts of defiance
Former boxer Floyd Mayweather expressed support for Brooklyn Nets player Kyrie Irving's refusal to get vaccinated, praising the basketball player's "free mind."
Anti lockdown protestor arrested in London, UK.
Anti vaccine mandate march in Washington DC
We are now witnessing many, many acts of defiance and turning points that undoubtedly will go down in history. All building in momentum toward one goal - Freedom.
And in every battle there comes a time when that pressure starts to prevail and you begin to see a crack in the enemy.
It started with Boris, prime minister of England
Followed by Scotland, Northern Ireland and with others easing restrictions.
Now Denmark of the European Union joins other countries in removing Covid restrictions
We say goodbye to the restrictions and welcome the life we knew before

You see, contagion has many definitions - there’s the viral contagion that we all know too well; and there’s also the contagion of the mind.
The psychological dictionary gives us a definition of social contagion
with regard to social theory, the expansion of behaviors, moods, and impressions via masses of people and various other kinds of societal conglomerations from one person to another person.
And Barsade quoting from Schoenewolf’s Emotional contagion: Behavioral induction in individuals and groups, offers this interpretation.
The sharing of emotions, or emotional contagion, is a pervasive phenomenon of widespread importance in the psychological and organizational behavior literatures. It has been best defined as “a process in which a person or group influences the emotions or behavior of another person or group through the conscious or unconscious induction of emotion states and behavioral attitudes”
Contagion of society; of the mind, can go both ways. We have witnessed one way - from the State using the fear & propaganda to control us for the last two years. But now its starting to turn in the other direction. From unexpected places and people.
A large group of Canadian truckers protesting vaccination mandates could form the world’s largest convoy on their way to the country’s capital city, Ottawa.
The Toronto Sun’s Joe Warmington wrote that, according to Guinness World Records, the longest recorded truck convoy was a little more than 4.5 miles in Egypt in 2020. The so-called “Freedom Convoy,” traveling from British Columbia to Ottawa, “is said to be considerably longer,” he wrote.
Now following in the spirit of the truckers, Canadian students demonstrate against mask wearing in school.
Chanting “LET US BREATHE”
Canadian businesses are also joining the fight
The turning point of battle
We are witnessing many acts of defiance and, of course, mixed messages from different countries. Are governments genuinely starting to return to normal? Is it part of a greater plan? Have some leaders simply had enough and just want to get off the sinking Covid ship as more and more data demonstrate the futility of Lockdowns and vaccinations?
In every battle there comes a moment when the tide turns; a window of opportunity. The loser pauses and misses the opportunity; the victor grasps it with both hands. We can debate it’s origin but a window is opening in this global prison.
Remember, history favours the brave - don’t pause and intellectualise, it’s time now to kick that window open, link arms and push on through as one Humanity.
There’s a better place waiting for you & me on the other side.
