Remember that old bumper sticker, "QUESTION AUTHORITY"? Well, there has NEVER been a better time than NOW for that frame of mind. These past two years it has been "AUTHORITIES" and "EXPERTS" versus FREEDOM OF CHOICE and COMMON SENSE. THE GROUP versus THE INDIVIDUAL. The 66.6% versus the 33.3%.
Okay, that last one might be a bit of a stretch, but it does make me wonder if that is where the much-feared 666 comes from. Somebody into numerology two thousand years ago decided it was significant somehow? Who knows, but it is pretty much the split — two-thirds against one-third — between pro-covid-shot and anti-covid-shot.
And, on this Christmas Day, it might be good to remember that Jesus was a rebel, going against the powers-that-be.
We should all do the same. It's time.
