The Time is Now: Differentiating “Force” from “Choice”

When you walked into that grocery store, did someone physically “force” you to slip that mask over your face, or did your hands maneuver that task? When the government told you to lockup your business and “forced” you to shut down for months because you were not deemed to be an “essential business,” (while operating next to the essential liquor store that was ringing up customers by the minute), who put the key in the lock and hung the closed sign on the door? When they told you to fill out that survey about your jab status, go get tested every week, or download the vaccine ID passport app to enter your personal information into their all-seeing databases, did someone “force” you to pick up a pen, walk into a facility to get tested, or swipe your phone and download the app? When you were told the jab is “safe, effective, and required” did someone “force” you to the ground and stick the jab in your arm or did you willingly walk into a facility and hold out your arm?

Let’s define the difference between “force” and “choice,” because the word “force” puts a paralyzing burden on people that stifles their decision processing. It’s time for the hard truth. Most people are under the illusion that they are under “force” because they are being told that something is “required” of them. Most of what is being requested, required, or mandated does not fall under any law, but even if it did, it is ultimately still a choice, despite the fact the choices may be undesired and difficult. People fear the outcome, so they choose the path of least resistance – and make a “choice” against their own will and beliefs, then call it “force” because they cannot reconcile the decision they just made.

In many cases, “choosing” to go against these tyrannical, illegal, dangerous “mandates” will not even result in repercussions, yet people still choose the path of least resistance because they fear confrontation and are exhausted by intimidation tactics. They are afraid if they do not wear a mask they will be confronted and possibly yelled at or told to leave the premises, but the reality is, in most cases, that will not happen because the people in the position to start the confrontation suffer from the same fear complex. People have difficulty with honoring their own moral values, setting boundaries, and taking a stand for their beliefs because they’ve been instructed their entire lives by other people telling them what to do and how to do it. Both sides will rationalize their actions and prostitute their own beliefs to avoid temporary discomfort, with “I’m just doing my job,” or “I know they’re just doing their job and I don’t want to get anyone in trouble.” Saving oneself from the short-term discomfort will bring a long-term control system most won’t be able to endure.

In other instances, people are reluctantly filling out surveys for employers that are requesting to know their jab status, downloading apps on their phones, doing weekly Covid-19 testing, or scrambling to get those religious or medical exemptions filled out, all of which is a level of compliance that is eating away at people, while trying to salvage a job that most of them don’t even like. No one is being “forced” to do these things, but they do not like the “choice” being presented to them, because they feel that they are damned if they do and damned if they don’t. Therefore, if they make the decision to take all of these steps, each step chisels away a little bit more of their conscience, leaving them to state “I was forced to do this, otherwise I was going to lose my job, and I can’t afford to lose my job.” Rather than, “I was given a choice, one that goes against my beliefs, but I decided to comply so as to keep my job.”

If we were to process through what might happen if millions of people decided to make the “choice” to leave their jobs, especially ones working at well-known corrupt organizations or establishments, and band together to invest in one another and utilize their skills to form businesses that sustain communities, just imagine how catastrophic that would be for all of those companies trying to “force” you to “choose” them? Some people feel limited with their skillset and are afraid to take the plunge, when the reality is, people have far more skillsets, talents, and capabilities than they’ve ever given themselves credit for or attempted to explore – in part, because big corp has done a fine job of leading people to believe that their worth is “clock-in” and “clock-out,” while all of the accolades go to the top dogs funding the corruption machine.

Self worth, confidence, integrity, beliefs, morals, ethical values, and boundaries are all needed to take these steps. If you remove the feeling of being “forced”, pressured, being boxed in or cornered, and the fear that goes with it, to melt away long enough to sit still with your heart – ask yourself what you really want. Do you want to work for a company that is part of the building blocks to our enslavement? Will that fulfill you, or eat you alive with each paycheck you cash? Are you willing to “choose” to comply against all of your beliefs and continue to ride out the tyranny, expecting that more will not be “required” of you with each passing month? Is the short-term comfort going to lead to long-term discomfort? Is it possible that there are hundreds, possibly thousands of other people at your place of employment that feel as you do and are willing to take a stand against the tyranny, alongside you?

Aside from nearly half the country already being against taking the Covid jab, there is a larger percentage against these mandates being made against all people, and there is a rapidly growing percentage of people who received the jab who now refuse to get the boosters because they are witnessing all of the illness and death that comes with it, and seeing how they were manipulated. The tide is quickly changing, and if people do not step up now, the long-term discomfort will be inevitable.

The government, education system, and media have spent decades brainwashing people to be co-dependent, obedient, sucking the self-worth out of them, and making sure that their skills go unseen because only those at the very top are the “true leaders,” not the labor force that actually made it all happen. They have been demoralizing people their entire lives, and they want people to play the victim because it puts them in an inferior position and mindset.

What happens when your employer mandates the jab? Will you “choose” the poison to keep your job? How many months or years will that buy you a paycheck before you can no longer work? Will you “choose” the vaccine ID passport so you can fly or gain “access” to special events? How long before they link your data onto the blockchain and climb into your bank account? Will you choose to keep working for the corporations building our enslavement? How long will it take for you to finish your own prison cell?

We all have to take responsibility for our own “choices” and recognize the pieces of this dystopian agenda that are either coming together or falling apart, based on each move WE make. Just as we are the true labor force that makes this world go round, we too are the ones that are building our very own prison cells – and the same group of people rules over both – until we no longer allow it.

This illusion of “force” is to create “victimhood” and put you in a feeling of powerlessness, when it’s quite the opposite. Everyone is being given a “choice” by the devil himself. Do you choose faith and fight to end all of this corruption and power once and for all, or do you choose to help them build the human enslavement system? It’s really that simple. It may not seem like it because everything is being done in incremental steps, but it is no different than if one of the corrupt came to your home and said, “We’ll pay you $100,000 a year to work for us, but the trade off is that in three years from now we will own you and control you, all you have to do is go along with everything we ask of you.” Would you say yes to that or would you immediately begin planning alternative ways to support yourself and your family? Rationalizing is a powerful trick within the mind. Once one recognizes they are rationalizing with themselves, that’s a good time to take a look in the mirror and ask yourself to see with clarity, to feel with purity, and to honor what the soul seeks, no matter how difficult the challenge may seem. Consider what true peace really means.

There is no more time to ponder – this is it. They are moving forward with their agendas, and we are all either helping them to build every piece of it or will all work together to cause their agendas to self destruct. What’s it going to be? Get silent, access that self worth, and connect with your heart – where all truth and answers reside.

Solutions come from the pathway you invent as you resist, and faith will open doors you didn’t realize existed.

      Every country is dealing with this to a different degree and under different circumstances. The U.S. has over 350 million guns in the hands of U.S. citizens, which is one of the reasons why things are handled/approached very differently here. People all over Australia are rising up against the tyranny they are facing, as are people in many other countries. No matter where people are in the world, we all have to fight against this tyranny in the best way that we can, and that means non-compliance because it is everyone’s biggest weapon – when the numbers are against the tyrants.

  • Kelley McCrory

    You are the BEST at articulating everything I think. Every thing in our lives is a CHOICE I wish people would understand that . God gave us Free Will for a reason, it’s up to us to stop this evil. Do or die. Period. Thanks so much Corey your words should be spread across the world. Please wake up people!

  • Clay

    Those who burn book are heinous medical fascists
    Those who dismiss books are fearful medical fascist cowards
    Those who speak up are courageous champions of freedom and liberty

    Which of those are you?

  • Chris Myers

    From the beginning of this so called pandemic, and long prior, I have always stood by my convictions and won’t stop now. Especially now. We’re looking straight down the barrel of totalitarianism. Historically, it never ends well for anyone under tyrannts. Everyone needs to wake-up, now.

    I am non-compliance against genocidal maniacs of authoritarism, now… and to the end of time.

    Thank you, Corey. You speak elegantly, and for me.

    May good forces be with you, and everyone who chooses the right side of history. The time is at hand.

  • Deva

    It’s pretty simple make a choice! What do you truly believe in? don’t let fear decide for you. Get out of your head and Listen to your heart ♥️
    The consequences of a choice may not be easy but handing your power over to someone to decide what is best for you is abusive mind control! If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything !!You know the truth and the truth shall set you free!!!!

    A welcome exhortation! I resonated with the mirrored graphic and later observation “…Once one recognizes they are rationalizing with themselves, that’s a good time to take a look in the mirror and ask yourself to see with clarity, to feel with purity, and to honor what the soul seeks, no matter how difficult the challenge may seem. Consider what true peace really means.”

    Miles Mathis also recently published an uplifting essay, “The Real Divisions” [http://mileswmathis.com/div.pdf], wherein he offers some estimates of actually numbers and percentages on various “sides” of divides. Time to redact the word “hopeless” from our personal dictionaries!

    Today is my last day at Kalitta Air. My manager said they told him that our job ends at 11:59 UTC tomorrow. I work afternoons, so this would mean a half day. He said “just turn in your stuff tonight to the manager on duty and call it good”
    I did file a religious exemption and was “approved”. My “accomodation”, however is leave without pay for 90 days, and then termination unless I resign.
    What a crock.
    I didn’t give in, though. My son who turns 21 soon works here as well and also stood up for his rights. There are other young people here who know right from wrong as well. That is encouraging at least.

    Great article, on point. The choice is upon us, Freedom vs. Tyranny. There is no going back to ‘normal’ now, just forward into the unknown (great awakening or great reset). I think it’s God that gives us the choice though, not the devil, who would’ve devoured our souls a long time ago if it was up to him.

    It’s so disappointing to see how many Americans just rolled over and gave up their freedom so easily, complying without question to illegal decrees and nonsense. Indeed, they did it willingly without protest, except for the children, who are truly forced to wear masks and participate in this lie, which makes me sick.

    Now it is clear that we have been living under an illusion of freedom, well conditioned to be ignorant and obedient, dependent and demoralized, and most people became slaves to this corrupt system and culture a long time ago. Ironically, I’m more hopeful than ever in the midst of this shit storm. At least people are waking up and we have a fighting chance to break the chains instead of slowly sleep walking into hell on earth.

  • Pat Imperatore

    Think of it this way folks.
    Everything, and I mean e v e r y t h i n g is a choice, with the exception of the color of your skin and the day you die. Those thinking “logical” say, “Well, you “have to” pay taxes.” NO, you do not. It is a choice. Remember sovereignty???
    Also, while I’m here. I’m the first one to say, one size does not fit all, BUT here, YES, ONE SiZE eliminates evil as it exists because WWG1WGA. There is a reason why that acronym became a buzz word. People use excuses to fail, to follow, to fear. Sacrifice for “doing what is right” from God takes guts and faith. When God lives in you, courage rises and like Paul the apostle, takes the lashes and then while bleeding sings joy unto the Lord. THAT is not a crock, but true history and here today as opp for all to make this their history …. together.♥

    There are shades of grey. Use them. I worked at a grocery store during the height of the mask mandate in my state. You had to wear it through the door – there was someone checking so we we didn’t another $10,000 osha fine. But as soon as you came in it is a huge store. Lots of people took theirs down. I do that at my new work. We are inenofna few areas STILL under a mask mandate. The person enforcing it after the door is a very tired manager who very often is no where to be found. Rebel in little ways. Will it get the mask mandate lifed – no but neither is protesting or outright begging. Also wear the easiest mask for you. I wear super un fitted ones. I and for airlies the whisper ones that look correct but are very breathable. Fight in as little or as big ways as you can.

  • James Mecham

    Great article. My wife and I live in Oregon. I haven’t worn a mask since our dictator, posing as governor, Kate Brown mandated it in March 2020. I was kicked out of Bi-Mart because I refused to wear one. A Fred Meyer manager asked if he could get me a mask, I said “No thank you.” I completed my shopping and checked out. I’ve had two cowardly patrons at different businesses lecture me about how I’m endangering people, even though both of them were masked. This year, despite continued mask mandates, more businesses and people aren’t wearing them. A parallel economy is slowly materializing, my wife and I continue to be mask-free and refuse the vaccines. If people would follow your advice, unite, stand against this medical tyranny we’ll be able to give one of the greatest gifts we can to our families: Liberty. God bless you, thank you for being strong.

    Ein großartiger Beitrag, der genau den Punkt trifft: die Verwechslung von Pflicht und Zwang und damit den Urheber einer Handlung. Pflicht ist eine willentliche Übereinstimmung mit dem, der sie auferlegt – also freiwillig, egal, wie sehr erpresst und genötigt wurde mit Nachteilen bis hin zu Strafen, Gefängnis oder gar Folter. Wie viel also kann ein Mensch ertragen, bevor er seinem Missbrauch zustimmt?

    Das andere ist der körperliche Zwang, ohne je gefragt worden zu sein. Er ist reine Gewalt, die auf jede Zustimmung verzichtet. Beides berührt sich in der Folter … es gibt ein Kontinuum zwischen einer völlig unabhängigen Entscheidung und dem körperlichen Zwang, beide benennen nur die Extrempunkte.

    Richtig, es ist jedes Mal eine Entscheidung (noch). Trage ich eine Maske um Nahrungsmittel noch selbst einkaufen zu “dürfen”? Stimme ich neuen Regularien meiner Bank zu, weil ich nicht will, dass der Zugang gekündigt wird und ich zudem weiß, dass JEDE Bank die gleichen Zugeständnisse für deren unausweichliche Funktion verlangt, so ähnlich, wie auch der Erwerb von Nahrung unausweichlich ist?

  • Christina

    Well written! I have stopped wearing the mask on and off during the last year in a half. I thought it was senseless at the beginning, but I told my boss that if it made her feel comfortable for me to wear I would. She lectured me on how it wasn’t to make her comfortable, but to keep others safe.

    Then beginning of September this year, a friend died of “covid”. I suspect he was vaccinated. Then the CEO of my company sent a text stating that the unvaxxed had to wear a mask. I went to her office and told her I would not wear a mask. I explained that it doesn’t work and I will not get bacterial pneumonia. They didn’t fire me, but I was the only nightshift worker in the company. The CEO told me that we have to lose liberties for the working society.

    Now that I’m quitting they have me training my replacement during the day without a mask. But if I change my mind and stay, I have to comply with their mask mandate, I mean mask policy.

    Just doesn’t make sense.

    I don’t go to the VA hospital anymore because I won’t wear a mask and I don’t trust them. I hadn’t trusted them since I left the Army, but tried them out because of President Trump. Now I’m back to not trusting.

    Thank you Corey Lynn for this opinion because I agree 100%!

    God bless you and yours in Christ Jesus.

    Quotes from an interview of Leemon McHenry:
    The suppression of true knowledge begets dependence. The masses become increasingly dependent on the “scholars” and “experts”.
    McHenry discusses medical ghost-writing in great detail. Freelance medical writers are hired to produce “scientific papers” based upon a template. Then the companies look for a trusted scientist who would be happy to put his name on the article. In other words, “key opinion leaders” often lend their names to articles they didn’t write. (They may have read and made some suggestions, according to McHenry.)
    This is not a new phenomenon either. Several editors of medical journals have warned of this, such as Dr. Marcia Angell:
    “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”
    Unfortunately, the problem is not confined to medical journals. Dr. Ulfakatte admits, “I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth.
    “Telling the mainstream media to do their job and report the news truthfully is like walking into a shoe factory and telling them to do their job and make dentures. It isn’t the mass media’s job to tell the truth, it’s their job to administer propaganda. And they do a great job.”
    Mark Twain understood the way this works a hundred years ago:“If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed; if you do read the newspaper, you’re misinformed.”
    But, Twain might not have imagined the lengths to which those who would like to misinform us now go. Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson explains in a Ted Talk about “astroturfing,” which she describes as “fake grassroots:”
    “Astroturfing is when political, corporate or other special interests disguise themselves and publish blogs, start Facebook and Twitter accounts, publish ads, letters to the editor, or simply post comments online, to try to fool you into thinking an independent or grassroots movement is speaking. The whole point of astroturfing is to try to give the impression that there is widespread support for or against an agenda when there is not. Astroturfing seeks to make you change your opinion by making you think that you are an outlier when you are not.”
    She gives the example of astroturfing being used to “drown out a link between a medicine and a harmful side-effect, such as vaccines and autism, by throwing a bunch of conflicting studies, surveys and experts into the mix, confusing the truth beyond recognition.”
    So, how do you spot astroturfing? Attkisson says the hallmarks of astroturfing include use of inflammatory language and words such as: crank, quack, nutty, lies, paranoid, pseudo, conspiracy and myth,plus misfits and malcontents. It was easy to find such inflammatory language in recent headlines, such as:
    YouTube, Facebook and Twitter align to fight Covid vaccine conspiracies
    Beto O’Rourke Lambasts GOP As ‘Cult Of Death’ For Withdrawing Mask Mandates In Texas
    Republican Governors Celebrate COVID Anniversary With Bold Plan to Kill Another 500,000 Americans

    In the case of Covid the use of the term “astroturfing” seems almost quaint. What we are seeing is more akin to an entire fake forest and, in that forest, we are told is … Bigfoot. See that blurry picture … that’s proof of Bigfoot. See that blurry photo of “the virus” … well, that’s proof of the thing that has changed the world … even though the test for it doesn’t look for the thing in the blurry photo … it just finds indirect evidence via a chemistry test (PCR, aka Covid test) … even though the count of people who die from “the virus” includes people who, according to the CDC, have an average of four co-morbidities when they die (and the flu has magically disappeared and, there were fewer suicides in 2020 than there were in 2019, but you should follow the science!).
    That’s the thing to notice … when you get up close to those astro-trees and tap on the trunks, don’t be surprised to find that the they sound hollow.
    Just remember,  the deadliest vaccine ever made is the smallpox vaccine, which killed 1 in 1 million vaccinated people. The COVID shots kill 822 per million fully vaccinated, making it more than 800 times deadlier than the deadliest vaccine in human history.
