No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. – John Donne
The phrase, for whom the bell tolls, is best known as the title of an Ernest Hemingway novel published in 1940. Hemingway borrowed the phrase from Donne's poem as the title for his book which describes the self-sacrifice of the protagonist, Robert Jordan, during the Spanish Civil War. In the book, Jordan arrives at his conclusion that "no man is an island" as all humans are interconnected to one another despite having different ideologies and beliefs.
Eighty years later, the theme of For Whom the Bell Tolls becomes increasingly relevant today as we observe what's happening around the world regarding government enforcement of the vaccine mandates. Noncompliance is forbidden and anyone who resists or simply speaks out against the official narrative is punished.
No matter what side of the fence you reside on regarding the covid injection, realize that as humans we are all interconnected. What happens to one, eventually happens to all. When the bell tolls for them, it eventually tolls for everyone. When freedoms are lost for one group of people because they oppose the jab, eventually freedoms are lost for all, because we stood idly by and allowed it to happen.
Loss of Parental Rights
In America and other countries, parents are having parental rights taken away. Shouldn't parents have the ultimate choice as to how to best provide medical treatment for their own children? With regard to the state of New Hampshire, apparently that's not the case.
The New Hampshire Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) recently made some waves in our state when they attempted to remove two children from their home after learning that the father had administered Ivermectin to his teenage boy a few days earlier.
Yet New Hampshire DCYF saw fit to issue a protective order, deploy their agents, and issue a “be on the lookout” notice to local police departments. They were willing to put the family – including two young teenagers – through the trauma of forcible separation and placement with strangers for an undetermined period.
In Germany, they have returned to their Nazi roots as children are being forcibly removed from their homes, separated from their parents and detained in isolation facilities. These little ones are treated as criminals and enemies of the state.
A German mother critical of the state’s Covid measures had her home raided and her children violently removed by police and child protective services. The children are being held in a state facility and have been unable to see their mother for over a month. The distraught mother is pleading for the public’s help.
Doctors Are Muzzled
In Canada, a well-respected 81 year-old physician was forcibly committed to a psych ward against his will because he spoke out against the jab. Dr. Melvin Bruchet and his peers noticed a high spike in stillborn deaths at a Vancouver hospital. In all of these stillborn births, their mothers were vaccinated. As a result of his observations, he spoke out against vaccinating pregnant women but was silenced by Canadian authorities and placed in a hospital psychiatric ward.
Moral of the story: If you can't silence the message, silence the messenger.
What Happens When the Bell Tolls for You?
If you consider yourself disconnected from what is happening to others in the world because of their beliefs against being injected and consider yourself safe and protected because you were vaccinated, what do you suppose would happen to you if at some point you objected to something? It could be anything, or it could be your objection to a 3rd, 4th or 5th jab, etc. It could be your objection to having your children vaccinated if that were to become mandatory. What would you do then? If it reached that point, would your protestations matter? That's unlikely, as the state would simply vaccinate your children in spite of your objection. If you think "that would never happen to me and my family," think again, as it's already happening to others around the world. Your freedoms are being eroded without you even being aware of it.
We are interconnected like dominoes.
You don't want to be the next domino to fall so it may be incumbent upon you to step out of the line now, in order that you and the dominoes behind you, don't fall down later.
