Will Americans Follow Europeans In Their Demand For Individual Liberty And Freedom?



By Don Jans

Europeans are saying enough is enough, we are individuals and demand individual liberty.

Since the 18th century, many in Europe, and yes elsewhere in the world, fled their native countries to immigrate to the United States. These people uprooted their families and left all that was familiar to go to a place where they would be strangers in everything except their desire to live their lives free from the tyranny of government. This trend continued, yes, even grew, throughout the 19th and 20th centuries.

These brave people believed the freedom to have open and independent thought and not be a slave to the conformity government demanded. This government conformity that was enforced by the engineered suppression of free speech and enforced censorship by preventing access to materials deemed by government to be misinformation. In addition, these people longed for economic opportunity that would be dependent on their desires, skills, and ambition which they believed was superior to the demanded equality of rewards despite the differences in ability and effort.

However, in addition to these European countries forcing these nonconformists and individualists to leave their homeland for the freedom and independence they craved, these European countries also exported to the United States their ideology of conformity, what they called social justice, and equal reward despite unequal ability and effort. These European countries exported to the United States the ideology of collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressivism) which can only exist under despotic rule or tyranny. This un-American philosophy, or anti-Individualist philosophy was introduced in America, and became the dominant belief of those in education, the media, and the entertainment industries of the United States.

The change brought to the United States as this collectivist philosophy became a mainstay in these critical industries has enabled these industries to indoctrinate many Americans in this evil ideology. Today, many in the United States advocate for the very policies from which the earlier Europeans had fled, and denounce the very policies for which the early Europeans risked everything so they could become a part of the great American experiment which was born on and thrived because of the embracement of Individualism.

A reversal of that happening is now exposed for all to see by the reaction of people to the despotic and tyrannical demands made by governments to control people under the guise of the China virus, which has become a political bellwether ignoring health and science. Many in the United States have accepted total government control of every aspect of their life including where they can go, when they can go, who they can visit, where and if they can work, what they must wear, how they must raise their children, and on and on.

The people in Europe have been subjugated to these same draconian government demands, but many in Europe are saying these requirements should no longer be accepted under any conditions, and certainly not when the requirements are only control requirements that ignore science and health. The different reactions we are witnessing from those primarily living in the cities of Europe and those living in American cities is revealing and disheartening for Freedom Loving Americans.

The Americans cower before the demands of the collectivist, yes communist, officials who now control the bureaucracy, the executive branch, and much of the legislative and judicial branches of our government. These control freaks say lockdown and the Americans say for how long. These control freaks say cover your face with an unhealthy face covering and the Americans say yes sir. These control freaks say you must show your papers to go places and do things and the Americans say where do I get the papers you require. These control freaks say we are requiring that you surrender all of your freedoms and liberties for the good of the collective and the Americans say thank you for protecting me from myself.

The Europeans are saying, no more will we cower to the despotic and tyrannical demands of governments. Everything the governments have told us is a lie and we will no longer surrender freedom for the governments false claims about protecting our health. Thousands upon thousands of demonstrators came out in London, Dublin, Paris, Rome, Athens, and other cities across Europe, against lockdown and vaccination mandates.

Here are some of the headlines:

The protest in Paris, France against the Macron government domestic vaccine pass is massive.

An enormous crowd in Italy marches against forced vaccinations and vaccine passports.

Anti-lockdown Protest in Australia.

Sadly, there was no comparable headline in the United States against the draconian and strictly political requirements of those collectivists using the China virus to condition a population to accept and praise a government that claims to protect them if they will surrender their liberties and rights. Please, will the Patrick Henry’s, the Samuel Adams’ and the Henry Lee’s stand and be heard once again.

Don Jans is a national acclaimed author and speaker.  He is also a lifelong student of history, with a special emphasis on Russian history.  His study of Russian history led to 1917 which led to the study of the teachings of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.  Don has written five books on the topic of Collectivism (Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism, and Progressivism). 

Don has been a guest on numerous nationally and regionally broadcast radio programs.  He is a weekly guest on a nationally broadcast radio program where he discusses collectivism and how it is impacting the United States, relating current happenings to the collectivist agenda.

Don has spoken to numerous groups across the nation on the topic of who and what is the United States and who and what is collectivism. The collectivist movement has called for a transformation of the United States. What is critical for all to understand is what is the transformation; what are we now and into what will we be transformed.  

Don’s speaking approach is the same as his writing approach, and that is to be direct and straight forward with no regard for the current mandated approach of political correctness. 

Samuel Adams said, “It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” If we are to remain free, we must be about setting brushfires of freedom.

I was intrigued by Tucker Carlson’s visit to Budapest Hungary and how Hungary is maintaining their national identity by enforcing their borders. If you haven’t seen it, I suggest you check it out on FOX News.
It made me proud of my Hungarian ancestry on my Mothers side of the family. My Grandmother was born in Budapest.

This is because we have few true journalists in the MSM and our source of information has been relegated to forum’s like Facebook. With the MSM and Facebook that censors thought, we can only depend on our great Citizens Journal for freedom of thought and word.

Don always hits the right points in his articles…

“Sadly, there was no comparable headline in the United States against the draconian and strictly political requirements of those collectivists using the China virus to condition a population to accept and praise a government that claims to protect them if they will surrender their liberties and rights.”

This is offset by the fact (most) Americans still have a vastly superior ability to physically defend self, family and property — numerically and legally.

The Europeans and Australians protest more vocally, but they still cannot defend themselves like most Americans can.

“Please, will the Patrick Henry’s, the Samuel Adams’ and the Henry Lee’s stand and be heard once again.”

If food shortages imperil America, and it becomes a low trust society, the courageous stand you wish to see will very likely take a stronger form than what you’re asking for.

Be ready for this type of scenario. Especially if you are confined to a large urban city or neighboring suburban community — particularly one with de-funded police. Those who can leave one of these blue enclaves should leave now.


Something is very wrong with this country, when you have foreigners, starting to rebel back against their own governments’ tyrannical edicts and rule…when we should be leading the standard, as was done back in 1774. But, our government and media would call us insurrectionists…while the BLM & ANTIFA riots of last year were just civil protests. The right side, has always used the ballot box first. If that doesn’t work, it’s the jury box. If those two don’t work…I really shouldn’t have to tell you what happens next. Very sad. Very disappointed.
