Time to Strike


I will stop the motor of the world.

-          John Galt

If it wasn’t painfully obvious way back in February 2020, that – unlike the novel that brought us John Galt – the businessmen of the world were never going to be the ones to stop the crushing of humanity, it certainly is clear today.

Following every edict, enforcing every draconian policy, eliminating all unapproved comment, playing the role of the tyrannical state.  This has been the path taken by big business (and, unfortunately big churches – especially those under an institutional umbrella).

And now, dozens, if not hundreds, of companies are announcing vaccine mandates for their employees.  These range from tech giants in Silicon Valley, to mega-banks in New York, to travel service, restaurants, and others. 


I have noticed something not unexpected over the last several weeks.  Dozens of help-wanted signs, signing bonuses, interview bonuses.  Labor shortages everywhere.  Even the most basic jobs – fast food, grocery stores, etc.  At the same time, long lines due to lack of staff.  Empty tables in the restaurant, with wait times of an hour solely due to lack of staff.  Dozens of people at the check-out line, with a dozen lines empty due to lack of staff.

It is a continuation of the disruption caused by shutting down supposedly “non-essential” businesses.  As if this could be centrally planned to avoid long term consequences.  It is a continuation of the disruption caused by paying people more not to work than they could earn by working. 

It is a continuation of the disruption caused by spending trillions of dollars to increase demand while paying billions to purposely-unemployed workers to decrease supply.

For the latest example:

American Airlines Group Inc. and Spirit Airlines Inc. canceled nearly 700 more flights Tuesday, stranding thousands of passengers and stoking concerns that crew shortages are adding to problems that initially were caused by weather and technology issues.

Data reviewed by the Allied Pilots Association, which represents American aviators, showed that out of 284 American flights grounded as of midmorning Tuesday, over 222 were attributed to pilot issues, said Dennis Tajer, spokesman for the union. “That’s unsatisfactory. That’s unacceptable.”


If you believe the state, there remain about 30% today that have not taken at least one jab.  Something between 20% - 25% of Americans say they will refuse the vaccine (that’s not really a vaccine); they say that they will never take it.  Many of these, inherently, work at the companies threatening them: take the jab or lose your job.


So, I think about the long lines at restaurants, airports, grocery stores, etc.  I think about the shortages in industry – the chip shortage in automotive is most famous.  I think about the massive prices increases for commodities of all sorts due to shortages.

And I think maybe it is time to strike.  Maybe the 20% - 25% of those who will never take the jab need to take a week off from work, all at the same time.  Make it clear that this will be the permanent condition if the mandates go into effect.


There are some industries where this will be irrelevant – industries located primarily on either coast, like banking and tech; too many true believers, and a service industry can better handle temporary disruptions. 

But there are many industries where this will be tremendously disruptive, those with facilities located throughout much of what is labeled flyover country.  Industries that have to deliver product every hour of every day: manufacturing, chemical, industrial, food production, travel, etc.

Will it make any difference?  I don’t know.  The ones who need to be most impacted by such an action are also the ones most sheltered from the impact.

But I do know how disrupted many industries are today, even without such an action.


Of course, they will make it illegal to do so:

Directive 10-289

In the name of the general welfare, to protect the people's security, to achieve full equality and total stability, it is decreed for the duration of the national emergency that

Point One. All workers, wage earners and employees of any kind whatsoever shall henceforth be attached to their jobs and shall not leave nor be dismissed nor change employment, under penalty of a term in jail.

Point Two. All industrial, commercial, manufacturing and business establishments of any nature whatsoever shall henceforth remain in operation, and the owners of such establishments shall not quit nor leave nor retire, nor close, sell or transfer their business, under penalty of the nationalization of their establishment and of any and all of their property.


I am speaking to those who desire to live and to recapture the honor of their soul. Now that you know the truth about your world stop supporting your own destroyers. The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction to give it. Withdraw your sanction. Withdraw your support. Do not try to live on your enemies’ terms or to win at a game where they’re setting the rules.

John Galt was mostly, but not exactly, right…

Ephesians 6: 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.


  1. "Point Four. No new devices, inventions, products, or goods of any nature whatsoever, not now on the market, shall be produced, invented, manufactured or sold after the date of this directive. The Office of Patents and Copyrights is hereby suspended."

    "Everything that can be invented has been invented." (Supposedly spoken by Charles Duell, Commissioner of the US Patent Office, 1899) See here for more information:

    "There is nothing more to be invented" vs. "Nothing more will be invented." What overrides both of these idiotic statements is this truism which will always be in effect.

    "Necessity is the mother of invention."

  2. The only advice I would give to anyone employed is not to resign or walk out - make them fire you for refusing to get vaxxed.
    As to what is going on overall - I think we're seeing a type of sifting of wheat from chaff coming up by the vaxx mandates. First will be employees, then customers.
    Cities are already issuing edicts to small businesses for requiring vaxx certificates for customers. As usual, some will comply and some won't.
    This sifting will affect every institution you can name, including churches.
    At some point in the near future, we might actually get the attention of those still sane enough to act intelligently with sound reasoning, but I'm not sure. Why?
    In my study of David Chilton's Days of Vengeance, the historian Tacitus is quoted describing absolutely insane behavior of people when Rome was sacked.
    Truly an Ephesians 6:12 phenomenon!

  3. Two things have come to mind:
    1: Perhaps the Vaxx is meant to "work"? To ensure their worker class will be identifiable (obviously), and ... Not sure how to phrase this, but - Genetically Altered in "useful" ways. (Thinking of how Earthers have been redesigned into two races in Quantum Vibe, but I'm having trouble finding the exact comic it's explained; the Rulers are genetically engineered to be visually pleasing, tall, muscular, intelligent, give off pheromones to make people like them. Laborers are designed to look like apes, short, ugly, and give off pheromones which make them disliked, so they even hate themselves., it has to be somewhere after here:
    2: If we don't use the ALTERNATE meaning of "strike" SOON, we won't have a world, forget country, to preserve.
    We need to stop playing their game, by their rules!

  4. Personally, I think it's over, at least in this country. Not only didn't Atlas shrug, but he's running around with a fly swatter crushing what remains of the resistance. And there really is very very little meaningful resistance.

    Not really sure what strikes would even do other than accelerate the apparently planned destruction of the economy.

    What would be nice is for the hackers of the world to come together and make hash of the COVID passport effort. But of course, most of those people are employed by government spy agencies, so that won't be happening either.
