Thoughts on Revolution, Distributed Systems and Butterflies
Change happens ~ and tyrants always fall . . . .
Some individuals in the health freedom movement have recently begun to feel discouraged by the infighting and legal battles within our ranks. Others are concerned by recent attempts to "win" people to our cause with inaccurate documentation of the "facts" associated with vaccine injury. Still others are frustrated and discouraged by the scale of the Big State/Big Pharma/Big Tech cabal, and they feel the health freedom movement can only succeed if we respond with a comparable "scale of operations".
I would like to suggest what may be a counterintuitive proposition, i.e., that the distributed resistance within the health freedom movement (with all its weaknesses and limitations) may, in fact, be one of our greatest strengths.
Think of it as death by a thousand cuts, with distribution serving as protection on several levels.
Specifically, distribution protects the health freedom movement from being disabled en masse while, at the same time, minimizing the risk of corrupted leadership, hungry for power, taking over within a large, single organization. (Yes, this can happen within even the most noble of causes.)
Consider, for example, the distributed resistance movements and peaceful revolutions during and following World War II.
By themselves these resistance initiatives may not have been sufficient to "win" the war, but they did demoralize, weaken and undermine the progress of the "enemy" ~ while the peaceful revolutions themselves were dramatic and inspiring examples of the fact that "the power of the people really is greater than the people in power". (Thank you, Dr. Tess Lawrie.)
Consider also the "top down" attempts to initiate change within large organizations. As an organization development consultant for the better part of my professional career, I observed time and time again that "top down" change initiatives were typically slow, poorly received and largely ineffectual ~ in contrast to "bottom up" employee initiatives that typically have much greater buy-in, adoption, energy and momentum.
If these self-organizing "bottom up" change initiatives and our historical resistance movements are at all analogous to the health freedom initiatives we see developing around the world today, I personally believe (and continue to hold out hope) that they may, in fact, be the best and surest method of undermining and eventually toppling the cabal that is currently trying (and I believe failing) to dominate and crush the resilience of the human spirit.
After all, we know with certainty that small groups of committed people can effect dramatic and significant change (according to Margaret Mead it is the only thing that ever has) ~ and if our understanding of the "butterfly effect" has taught us anything at all, it is that dramatic, revolutionary and transformational change can occur in the most unlikely and unsuspected of ways.
When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it always. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
