Here Is the Answer of “When”

Image result for atlas shrugged comet tunnel

The conductor stood by the rear end of the Comet. He looked at the light of the tunnel, then at the long chain of the Comet’s windows. A few windows were lighted, but most of them showed only the feeble blue glow of night lamps edging the lowered blinds. He thought that he should rouse the passengers and warn them. There had been a time when he placed the safety of the passengers above his own, not by reason of love for his fellow men, but because that responsibility was part of his job, which he accepted and felt pride in fulfilling. Now, he felt a contemptuous indifference and no desire to save them. They had asked for and accepted Directive 10-289, he thought they went on living and daily turning away in evasion from the kind of verdicts that the Unification Board would convict him for disobeying order, for creating a panic, for delaying Mr. Chalmers. He had no desire to be a martyr for the delaying for the sake of allowing people safely to indulge in their own irresponsible evil.

Atlas Shrugged – Ayn Rand

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Atlas Shrugged details the depravity and greed of the inept political class as the world collapses into chaos. Sound familiar? The three protagonists in the book organized a strike of industrialists 12 years before the system disintegrated. I will point out the Obama took office in 2009 and 2021 is now 12 years later.

The above paragraph from the book details the fate of the Comet train. Everyone in charge knew that more than 300 people would die if the train entered the tunnel with a coal burning engine. But they had given up and accepted that no one was going to save them for the evil of the government.

Let’s break this down:

He [the conductor] thought that he should rouse the passengers and warn them. There had been a time when he placed the safety of the passengers above his own, not by reason of love for his fellow men, but because that responsibility was part of his job, which he accepted and felt pride in fulfilling.

We thought that we should rouse the people and warn them. There had been a time when we placed the security of the nation above our own, not by reason of love for our fellow men, but because that responsibility was part of our duty, which we accepted and felt pride in fulfilling.

How many people have been warning the nation about the evil which has taken hold in the government since 2009? These people are now vilified as domestic violent extremists. Their crime: a responsibility that they felt it was part of their duty, which they accepted and felt pride in fulfilling.

Now, he felt a contemptuous indifference and no desire to save them.

Now, they felt a contemptuous indifference and no desire to save them.

Have you noticed the blog posts of many sites lately? How many are directed at keyboard warriors and frustration at the people. How many blogs have shut down? How many are disgusted with a contemptuous indifference as people have accepted the illegal coup of the 2020 elections? How many commenters have given up and/or ridiculed the messenger? How long before we have no desire to save the people?

They had asked for and accepted Directive 10-289, he thought they went on living and daily turning away in evasion from the kind of verdicts that the Unification Board would convict him for disobeying order, for creating a panic.

The Deep State, media and big business had asked for and carried out a coup against Donald Trump. The people thought they could go on living and daily turned away in evasion from the kind of verdicts that the courts would attack them for disobeying executive orders, the media and their new masters.

We wonder why. Why do we do it? For whom do we do it? Why can’t the people see the collapse and the tyranny? Why have we risked so much for people who have turned away and accepted their “fate”?

He had no desire to be a martyr for the delaying for the sake of allowing people safely to indulge in their own irresponsible evil.

Do we desire to be a martyr for the delaying for the sake of allowing people safely to indulge in their own irresponsible evil?

The people of this country have three choices:

  1. They can accept tyranny.
  2. They can fight tyranny.
  3. They can go on strike to hasten the collapse.

From a little further on in Atlas Shrugged:

The man in Bedroom F, Car No. 13, was a lawyer who had said, “Me? I’ll find a way to get along under any political system.”

This is the worst of the rot infecting our country: people who “feel” they can evade tyranny by going with the flow.

Back to the question of this piece: When? When will the people wake up and stop indulging their own irresponsible evil? The answer is when they have suffered more than they have. We saw the breakdown in Texas this past week and now the post mortem is starting as the blame must be placed on someone other that those who are truly responsible. What is yet to come?

Not Klaus Schwab: Most of you will survive the coming food ...

I have fought tyranny for a long time. I have no wish to see people suffer, even from their own apathy and acceptance. I also have no wish to motivate people who rely on ignorance and fear to get along under any political system.

So I will take step 3 and when the time comes (and it will) to rebuild, I will be there waiting for the producers to restore personal Liberty.

Thank you for this. I can’t believe how gullible people are these days. Turn a blind eye even. It seems that standing up for ourselves is a bad thing. I have come to think that nobody has a backbone anymore. I have not been deplatformed from FB yet but I know it’s getting close. I could be just 1 post away. I will keep on posting the truth and I will not stop.

Also there are slim to no men of fighting age who will resist and fight back even for their families future. Apathy and nihilism w/ most people. They will willingly leave all behind and go into the FEMA camps not giving a hoot about their family being separated. Hubby and I are social recluses because so many people are ignorant sheeple.

Option 3, count me in. I have had cancer, had a philandering wife, lost jobs to mismanagement and corruption. I understand much about useless investment in that which is already lost.
Geography limits contact with the best of those i would prefer to align with. Will see you either way this life or the next.

Klaus Schwab,
How reassuring.
i do not see how people can possibly ignore the implications of everything going on, and the connections with prophecy.
i thought it strange that just this morning saw a u tube commercial on ’12’ free meals from a group called Hello fresh out of Germany.
coincidence?

Ayn Rand- “An individualist is a man who says: I will not run anyone’s life – nor let anyone run mine. I will not rule nor be ruled. I will not be a master nor a slave. I will not sacrifice myself to anyone – nor sacrifice anyone to myself.”
Also , be aware that Ayn Rand was an atheist. Amazing how right she was on so many things.

She wasn’t under the christial ether cloud. Christiality is a Satanic force . The law of confusion , rebellion and disorder. Before you get irritated let me say Judaism is even worse.

Here is what irritates me. many of us see that the opposite is what we now have. we see the upside down world that has been created by the evil spirits.
i see what many Christians have become and those of all “religions.” But to condemn them all as collectives seems counter productive to what we should be trying to achieve.
Just as all police are not the same, just as all women are not the same, all black, all white. if we ourselves are to be treated as individuals should we not also treat others the same?
i do not believe ‘all’ Christians are in or of a satanic force.

This came home to roost. I had spent time and money training and studying with a female friend. Very much on the same page, point to point. Excellent team. I moved to the country to build a retreat she stayed in the city. Time went by without a lot of contact. She is now very much in and of the “world”. Social media, masker, unprepared for the events before us. Thinking as many do -- “oh, I will just say no to the jab and continue on in my career.” Nothing I can do for her -- Cyphered back into the matrix -- Did I fail her or did she fail herself? She was a great friend, I pray hard for her and the kiddos.

Well said, David. When I red-pilled ~13 year ago, and I learned enough to know where things were headed, I began ranging the clarion bell for whoever would listen. I felt a calling to share what I knew and, being a Christian, I considered myself one of the watchman on the wall. However, most of what I got was a lot of indifference. Some of what I got was what my 2 brothers said to me “stop with the doom and gloom sh^*!”. So, I did.
As Glenn Beck likes to say, I’m not good on my timing but, I’m fairly certain of the outcome and, not what is coming but, what is now here. We are in Romans 1 and close to the fulfillment of the Book of Revelation.

For more effect, you could add “learning what is taxed” to step 3. Reclaim your right to keep the fruits of your non-federally connected private labor and skills. Doing so diverts the resources away from those who work day and night against liberty and to you to use as you see fit. It takes courage and effort to over-come many years of misinformation and conditioning. Here is the place to start: https://www.losthorizons.com/

You analyzed this perfectly. You also captured my exact feelings on the situation we are in. My wife thinks Trump will magically come back. I tell her, no it all has to collapse so that we can rebuild. The clown show must fall on itself and I no longer have any desire to fix what is unfixable. I appreciate your content every day so keep it going for readers like me.

All of what the Author said here is Correct- but he missed the Root Cause -- “Normalcy Bias”, or that since most of the ‘problems’ have Yet to manifest themselves in people’s daily Lives -- Like the Masks, the small Infringements on Liberty seldom prevent most people from conducting their Lives as they did the Week, Month, or Year before.
Does “Election Fraud” personally Affect You? Did it make you Homeless? Lose your Job? Steal your Car? Cost you Money? No. The Fact that the CONSEQUENCES of Election Fraud just might do All of those things, is still an “In the Future, To be Determined” event.
That Said, ever-increasing Numbers of people ARE having their Lives Disrupted. But the Lights are still On, and Food is available at the Grocery Store (or Food Bank). The actual ‘Tipping Point’ IMO, is going to be a more Widespread “Grid Down” event (whether Intentional or not) Combined with Enough People realizing they “Have Nothing left to Lose”. And Take it Out on any available .gov target.

K. Schwab & friends can’t wait until the masses (you and I) are starving, freezing and watching our loved ones die. This is their glory event. Texas was not meant as a wake up call, it was meant as a threat to get us in line. My problem is that I am not wired to accept this destiny without rebelling against it, even if I die. Are there others like me? Don’t know. Does it make a difference? Not really. It’s harder on my own but I’ll deal with whatever the situation presents.
I’ve done my work and continue to keep everything up. I replace what I use. What I cannot do is carry freeloaders. On the other hand, it goes against my grain to totally walk away from someone in dire need. Reminds me of a spiritual lesson I was taught..
I was in India at a facility where everything inside the walls was immaculate, everyone had whatever they needed. Outside of the wall in the little village (which was filled with shops and businesses) was a woman and her young son begging for food. Several of us became worried about her condition and we sneaked food to the boy but were told specifically not to take food to the mother.. When we brought the situation up to the owner of the facility we were told that the mother and son were welcome to come inside at any time of the day or night.. Days passed sneaking food to the boy as the mother visibly began to die. Finally the day came when the mother was dead. The young boy was brought inside and immediately cared for in many ways.
Those of us who tried to help brought the whole situation up for evening discussion. It was explained that when the mother & child first arrived an official was sent out to her to invite her to come inside. That invitation was never rescinded nor changed. The only conditions were that she would have to accept a job like everyone else to help keep the place up. And she would have to attend the prayers and behave morally. The woman refused, instead demanding that she and her son be given housing, food and clothing as unconditional charity.
The lesson was that rather than come inside on her own two feet and join everyone else by sharing the responsibilities, she preferred to die. This was a hard truth but it has served me well up until now, and maybe it will in the future as well.

gail,
Thanks for sharing. Very tough and good lesson.
Texas is a warning also. A warning from above.
There have been many of these events , i believe an increase of late, and no (it is not the worlds climate change agenda, nor man made.)
Climate extremes and warnings for all to see. Governments and Nations in turmoil. The same bureaucracies in churches and in schools , the same failings across the world,
coincidence?

We have read “live not by lies” and know what is here.
it isn’t coming..it is already here.
Please read the book and see what those who lived through Communism and Socialist takeover suffered.
the hardest thing is going out to work or leaving your home and pretending to believe as they do.
surround yourself with people who believe as you do. Talk to your children.
The Benedict Option is another good book..
God bless and stay safe

Majority (dumbed down over several generations via gov. schools and liberal colleges) will accept and embrace tyranny. Churches 501c3’s are are compliant in pushing this agenda. Few churches oppose and they are not tied to a corp. or 501.

Your “I will point out the Obama took office in 2009 and 2021 is now 12 years later”, is going to catch many unawares if it is be fulfilled in 42 days?
The “prophetic church” has been overwhelmed by a strong “spirit of cognitive dissonance” that came from A FALSE manmade “70 year” prophecy from Daniel 9:24-27 with an “UNATTACHED” or separated future 70th week of 7 years of tribulation was edited as FACT into the commentaries of our English Bibles. 
It came out of a book called the ‘Coming Prince’ that has been rehearsed and played over and over by Christian “prophecy gurus” thousands of times the past 50 years.
That ‘lie” is the reason WHY there is a [bracket] as a type of WARNING in Matthew 24:15 [whosoever reads, let the reader UNDERSTAND] the book of Daniel.
Jesus graciously gave those who DIDN’T take refuge in that LIE and hide behind it, a cognitive understanding of His perfect “step by step” countdown to His return on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021 from a “sign” that appeared in the sky on September 23, 2017. Time Counselor
