Escape From Liberty

The forest was diminishing, but the trees maintained electing the axe, for the axe was brilliant as well as convinced the trees that due to the fact that his take care of was constructed from timber, he was one of them.

Erich Fromm was a German/US social psycho therapist, theorist as well as writer. He composed the influential publication Retreat From Freedom during the 1930s, when Adolf Hitler was rising to power in Germany. Fromm explains how liberty is scary to some individuals, and also exactly how they will choose to surrender their liberties to an authoritarian like Hitler.

The typical theme is fear. People give up their liberties due to the fact that they are afraid.

Fromm argued that flexibility itself can occasionally be the reason for worry and also anxiousness, compeling us to find methods to escape from freedom. One of the ways to run away liberty, Fromm argued, is via authoritarianism. Let Big Bro make the decisions, it’s simpler in this way since then life’s obligations are raised from our shoulders. Fromm suggested that the surge of Hitler was a perfect instance of running away flexibility with tyranny.

Oppressors, tyrants, eco-lunatics, and also clinical bio-fascists are wonderful at spreading fear. Political leaders and also school board participants that permit children into ladies’ bathrooms to rape them (as happened twice in Loudon, Area Virginia with the very same perp) represent themselves as wood to the trees, even when the axe reduces right into the tree trunk.

When I was maturing the anxiety was of nuclear destruction. The United States and also the Soviet Union were in a great struggle, with nuclear bombs the utmost tool. Concern of nuclear war was utilized to scare the population as well as resulted in an enormous boost in “protection” investing as well as the production of what Eisenhower called the military-industrial-complex.

During the 1960s to the here and now, environment adjustment has additionally been a fear-mongering strategy made use of to frighten the black out of the international population. “A brand-new ice age is coming” has rotated with “global warming will lead to disastrous death on earth.” These 2 scare strategies are, certainly, pseudo-scientific nonsense. Ice core information from Greenland and also Lake Vostok in Antarctica show, over the last million years, continuous temperature level rises and falls, interspersed with Ice Ages. Glacial period happen about 100,000 years apart, and also the last glacial period finished regarding 18,000 years ago.

After 4 billion years of advancement, Gaia will not activate mankind and also the life it has produced. The concept is, prima facie, unreasonable.

In 2020 and also 2021, an additional and also much more effective scare tactic has actually arisen: the unnoticeable opponent. The propaganda and pseudoscience bordering COVID-19 has damaged sensible argument. COVID-19 and also the injections were in the start being created and also utilized to conserve lives. Now we have unscientific and totalitarian injection mandates being forced, worldwide, on populaces in numerous countries.

If the environment modification fear and also the pandemic anxiety strategies fail, the psychotics who run our organizations will certainly return to their utmost hole card: The fake unusual intrusion. This scare method is being held in reserve in instance the lockdowns as well as requireds don’t function to squelch those pesky people that refuse to give up their flexibilities. The scenario will be, “evil aliens with innovative galactic modern technology are here to ruin us.” OR, “the benevolent space bros as well as sis are below with life-saving technology to guide the mankind to an utopian future.” Both sides of this scam conceal its actual function: the populace of earth should unify in a Collectivist - communist, fascist, or technocratic - [] hive mind society ruled from above by a couple of with (apparently) remarkable knowledge or innovation. It’s occurring today.


Anti-social personalities, sociopaths, and also psychotics just have one intention: death, damage, and personal gain. It’s easy to see through their systems since every one of them are based in concern.

All of them invite you to be cut down by the axe, since “the axe is among us.” Do not buy it.
