Nothing To See Here, They’re Just Broken

ACE(s) For The Win!

An observational study conducted in Wales on citizenry over eighteen and published in the peer-reviewed medical journal BMJ Open has discovered that people who had suffered from childhood trauma were three times more likely to be vaccine-hesitant than those who had not.

Upon reading this news through one of our local mainstream channels, I actually agreed – wonder of wonders! I had come to a similar conclusion over a year ago, whilst watching the people in my life withdraw to their various corners. As I will explain later, there are specific reasons why I believe this to be so.

I will not deny that I was slightly confused; why would the media be reporting on such data when it might elicit compassion and understanding instead of the ‘othering’ that has been commonplace within our corporate media channels since the advent of these ‘vaccines’?

Then something occurred to me, reporting on these conclusions was never intended to help people understand their fellow man better at all. The true intent was to treat those trauma sufferers as ignorant scapegoats.

I have to hand it to them, though, this is the most covert and insidious form of othering I have seen yet, and there has been a shit-tonne of it here in Canada. 

Nothing to see here! Their mistrust is explainable; they haven’t any valid points or information. Do not bother listening to them, they are broken and should take some pharmaceutical concoction to fix that up, tout de suite!

The BMJ Open study shows how those with high ACE (adverse childhood experiences) scores are the most likely to suffer hesitancy surrounding the COVID restrictions and mistrust the narrative.

Shout out to my fellow damaged souls with 10/10’s! Who doesn’t love to ace a test? (pun and sarcasm intended) Given the progressive Oppression Olympics that society is now so fond of, you would think we would get some respect or at least a medal, but I digress.

If you ask me, they see this correlation as a means to explain away why we renegades are anti-authority, a flaw due to our troubled pasts. I don’t see this as a flaw or a loss, but actually a win. Some may choose to perceive us differently, but I don’t see us as being broken, as much as being learned in the ways of abusers, and therefore we know them when we see them.

I don’t accept this invalidation of lived experience now, any more than I did when I was 11. When raised with gaslighting and manipulation – the same tactics being used by our world leaders and government bodies throughout this pandemic especially – it makes you aware of what is happening and compelled to expose it. More importantly, when you spend your childhood fending for yourself, once an adult, you have a profound and fierce desire to protect your loved ones, especially the children. 

There is positivity to be found in the harm that I had suffered at the hands of my early authorities. My experiences have helped me to see what others less damaged have been willing to accept without question.

Many Canadians are properly trained to be polite, do as their told, follow orders, and never question authority. Those who come from homes without the experiences noted in this study are eager to do so, since given their history they feel secure that there is someone to trust at the helm. As happy as I am for these people, I now recognise that this luxury comes at a price, as it can produce blinders, and I appreciate having a keen vision.

As someone with PTSD, I tend to be hypervigilant, acutely aware of any danger and have cultivated an intense instinct for recognising ‘bull-shitters’ and fakery. This survival skill has served me well throughout life, and as such, I don’t consider this pejorative nor a reason to disregard what I have to say.

With the world settling into its binary formation, both sides seem to be observing themselves as the light and accusing their perceived enemies on the opposing side of the dark. Why does it have to be this way?

When did we stop hearing each other? Who enjoys living in this world where people retreat to their bunkers and toss grenades at members of their own family? Why do people find it easier to invalidate their neighbour when their experiences and individual choices do not align?

I thought this new world was a place where people were free to have their own thoughts, practice their religion, and maintain the right to make whatever decisions were best for them and their families without fear of medical tyranny. Why did we build this new world if only to follow deceptive leaders that try to drag us back to the old?

Irrespective of this study, I have observed some people whom I know have suffered early childhood trauma that have taken the opposite approach, who are first in line to follow the unscientific, and in many cases, incomprehensible restrictions the government has foisted upon us. This is likely because of the fight/flight/freeze response that becomes activated when we sense danger. As part of our reptilian brain, this innate response is present within all humans, whether they were traumatised as children or left unscathed. Some people layer up and fight, some flee to hide their heads in the snow, and some simply freeze and let the avalanche come down on them. 

We could (and should) be having an open discourse about which of these responses is the more helpful and safe of the lot, as they are unique to every individual. No one person is more important than another, regardless of their education, wealth, and no matter what the brainwashing media – bought and paid for with 600 million of our tax dollars – says at the behest of our tyrannical government. 

Everyone’s voice deserves to be heard so that the truth can reign supreme, that is what freedom looks like. When you suppress Canadians’ voices and take away their rights, we no longer live in the free society that our ancestors fought so hard for us to enjoy. 

Shaming, belittling, gaslighting, and invalidation are tools of a tyrant. Our current revolution against medical tyranny is a wake-up call to all of the brave souls that make up this great land!

If we, the people, do not come together and honestly discuss the views of ALL Canadians regarding our once strong and free land soon, the next time we do so, we will be in chains.

Gaslighting Meme that says: Gaslighting is a means of manipulation that wishes to make someone doubt reality, and is used as a tactic to gain power and control. They deny they've said or done something even though you have proof. They turn others against you to take away your support system. They dismiss your legitimate concerns. Their actions don't match their words. They call you crazy. They claim you said or did something you didn't do.

Had you heard any news reporting on the recent BMJ Open study, and if so, what did you think of the results?

Are there vaccine mandates instituted in your country? If so, what do you feel about them?

Canadian Freedom Convoy 2022

From Lying Down in Silence to

Standing Up in Strength

I’ve been struggling to write a blog post for some time now. In fact, my last post was from early October, so it has been over three months. I had every intention of keeping up with weekly book reviews, and then I hit a wall.

It may be that I’d been producing too much. Spending every free moment away from my responsibilities as a wife and mother to either read or write reviews was wearing on me, if I’m honest. Sleep is imperative for my mental health and maintaining balance, and I wasn’t pulling it off.

I’m inclined to think it was mainly writer’s block. Of course, this is something that any creative person suffers from at times, but this felt different.

I realise now that I was feeling silenced, not stumped.

There was an immense pressure surrounding my blogging, as I felt the need to remain neutral and apolitical with the hopes of entertaining the widest audience. I’m not sure this is even attainable given the current state of the world and division amongst people. Everyone seems to be retreating to their echo chambers of identity, political and otherwise.

Public discourse is suffering. To communicate via the technocrats’ AI-run data mining sites is to sling insults at your perceived enemy who happens to disagree with your opinions, be damned manners, facts, or attempts to understand each other.

What I’ve been silently pining for is a place where people can talk about ideas with an open mind, sans hostility and anger. I don’t want to fight and be snarky. I want people to come together without fear of others’ judgement.

So this will be my second iteration of this blog. I’ve dressed it up a bit differently, and I’m changing my approach. I will add any book reviews that I might write, possibly publish some of my old ones from over a decade ago, but mainly I will create and post memes to help express all that I’m feeling within our current culture.

I would hope that any subscribers would like to stay and share in healthy discourse, but I understand if they would like to unfollow now that this is not exclusively a book blog. I would in no way be offended and completely understand.

I haven’t been reading too many books lately. Whatever focus I’ve been able to muster up has been reserved for the ongoing search for truth.

It feels like a pivotal time in the world. The rights and freedoms I was lucky to have and appreciative of as a Canadian over the last 40 years are now eroding for my son’s future. I won’t let that happen without a fight.

I’ve not felt hope in two years. I’ve observed the incessant gaslighting and authoritarianism coming from not just my government but those around the world, and I have been genuinely hopeless a lot of the time.

Then I heard about the trucker convoy, and there was a flutter in my chest as I can only imagine my internal pilot light must have reignited.

These brave Canadian truckers have organised a convoy to Ottawa and are blocking the city streets until Trudeau resigns or cancels all mandates.

I was thrilled once being made aware this was an anti-mandate movement where the vaccinated and the unvaccinated alike have come together for a common goal, this while our government and the MSM try continually to pit us against each other.

Canadians have had enough of being dictated by unscientific rules and regulations, having their business destroyed, and being treated like second-class citizens to the ruling elites. The latest polls show the majority are against the current restrictions, and are in favour of lifting the mandates, although our lying leader and his bought and paid for corporate news channels say otherwise. The truckers have the power to force the tyrants hand, and it has lit a fire across the world, as other nations organise their own convoys for freedom.

I have never been more proud of my country or her brave and patriotic people. Standing on an overpass in Ontario while the convoy plastered in Canadian flags passed beneath us, we waved our flags back and shook our handmade signs of hope and gratitude.

We Fight For Freedom With Our Love

After two years of avoiding strangers, we were all communing together with smiles of pure joy and togetherness. No one was afraid of another’s judgemental stare, although there were some rude comments from a few cars passing by.

I have never experienced anything like it in my life, and I don’t think I’ll soon forget what it felt like to be a part of history in the making, with my son by my side.

These are our ‘Why do we even need to be doing this anyway!’ faces.

So that’s it. I went from lying down in silence to finally finding my voice and standing up for my son’s future. I know I will lose some of you for my beliefs, and that’s okay. I would say the same thing that I have told those that I’ve lost in my personal life: I will be waiting with open arms when (if) you come around.
