The American Revolution Patriots Fought for Autonomy and We Must Do That Too | Barbara Loe Fisher

The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 taking on the King of England had a vision. Many were well-educated and in their 30s and 40s, married and raising children in the 13 original colonies. Most were attorneys and jurists, while others were merchants, shippers, farmers, physicians, ministers and other professions. They had a lot to lose if they failed in their quest to throw off the yoke of tyranny and create a new Republic. They dreamed of a nation where all would be free to respect “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.”

The American Revolution Patriots Fought for Autonomy and We Must Do That Too by Barbara Loe Fisher

The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 taking on the King of England had a vision. Many were well-educated and in their 30s and 40s, married and raising children in the 13 original colonies. Most were attorneys and jurists, while others were merchants, shippers, farmers, physicians, ministers and other professions. 1 They had a lot to lose if they failed in their quest to throw off the yoke of tyranny and create a new Republic.

They dreamed of a nation where all would be free to respect “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.” They proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence that: 2

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”  

That document marked the official beginning of the American Revolution declaring war on the British monarchy, a war that would last until 1783. Those who signed it made this solemn pledge: 3

“For the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

They knew the risk they were taking by following their conscience and summoning the courage to sign that pledge. The personal price almost all of them paid was steep. One-third fought in the militia and nine died from wounds or hardships suffered during the war, with several losing sons in it. Some were taken captive by the British and tortured as traitors. A dozen saw their homes burned down. Nearly all were poorer by the end of the war than when it began. 4 5

Resisting Tyranny and Defending Autonomy to Protect Natural Rights

Tyranny comes in many forms. Resisting tyranny that robs the people of their liberty is usually taken up by a minority, who will not comply and who lead the way for others longing for freedom, who either don’t know how to fight for it or are afraid of the price they will have to pay if they do.

The natural right to autonomy is the foundation for all other natural rights given to us by God and the foundation for human rights acknowledged by governments. 6 7 The Declaration of Independence, like the Bill of Rights in the U.S. Constitution, acknowledges the existence of basic natural rights that belong to every human being. 8 9 10

Today the right to autonomy, protection of bodily integrity, 11 and other natural rights are under attack.12 13 Autonomy, which gives us the freedom to think rationally and follow our conscience and make voluntary decisions about exercising informed consent to medical risk taking, is being threatened by corporations and institutions, doctors and scientists, public health officials and academics, attorneys and judges, lawmakers and businessmen, who are facilitating iron-fisted operation of the powerful and very lucrative Public Health Empire. 14 15 16 17 18 19 They seek ownership of our bodies and the bodies of our children so we can be legally compelled to buy and use pharmaceutical products that they label “vaccines” 20 that not only can fail to prevent infection and transmission 21 22 but can injure and kill. 23 24 They believe that our bodies can be sacrificed in service to “the greater good” of society or, as utilitarians would put it, in order for government officials to be able to secure what they have judged to be “the greatest happiness for the greatest number of people. 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32

A Weaponized Mandatory Vaccination System Is Threatening Autonomy

The political tool being used to achieve this end is weaponization of the mandatory vaccination system, which has been in place globally for the past two centuries. 33 It began with compulsory smallpox vaccination. 34 35 In the 21st century, compulsory vaccination laws have become the tip of the spear in the great culture war going on in this country and countries around the world as populations are being asked to answer these two questions and make a choice.

Does the individual have natural rights which limit the power of the state? Or does the state own the bodies of individuals and the legal right to use them for what those in power have judged to be “the greater good?”

These are profound questions. They strike at the heart of liberty and what it means to be free.

Those patriots who fought and died in the American Revolution to secure the freedoms we are trying so hard to protect knew how important freedom of thought and conscience were to preserving liberty. They had suffered persecution for their religious beliefs under oppressive hereditary monarchies. Trapped for centuries in inflexible class systems that kept them poor and powerless, they had fled from tyranny but still found themselves as residents of colonies being subjected to harsh taxation without representation and punished for speaking out against injustice.

The patriots who wrote the Declaration of Independence knew that without respect for autonomy and the right to exercise freedom of thought 36 and conscience, 37 individuals can be exploited 38 and become nothing more than slaves serving an authoritarian state.

The COVID-19 Pandemic Unleashed Sickness and Death and Abuse of Authority

For the past decade, I have talked about the Vaccine Culture War 39 because forced vaccination laws, which punish individuals for refusing to believe in the sanctity of vaccines and refusing to comply with vaccine mandates, have everything to do with the larger culture war being fought over what it means to be free. 40

Between 2020 and 2023, the whole world saw what can happen when governments fail to respect autonomy and freedom of thought and conscience. 41 This July 4, 2024, most of us know that scientists in biohazard labs conducting risky gain of function research created a mutated coronavirus that unleashed sickness and death on the world 42 43 44 45 with money from governments 46 47 doing the bidding of doctors and pharmaceutical companies in charge of the global Public Health Empire. We know that officials at the highest levels of the U.S. government 48 and in the United Nations World Health Organization lied to the people about what they did, 49 50 and they lied to the people about the risks and failures of the fast-tracked cell disrupter mRNA biological product 51 52 53 54 55 they called a “vaccine” but is unlike any “vaccine” ever injected into humans. 56 57 58 59

What we remember most from that betrayal of trust is that our autonomy, our freedom to think and speak and work and assemble freely, was taken away. In the digital public square, government officials brokered deals with Big Tech owners of social media companies to shut down all conversations about the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the mRNA biology if those conversations did not conform to government and World Health Organization-approved narratives.60 61 62 That censorship continues today, with NVIC and others who tried to tell the people the truth during the COVID pandemic still being blocked from the right to speak on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram and You Tube – even though the pandemic emergency declaration is over. 63 64 65

But beyond silencing all dissent, the Public Health Empire terrorized, injured and killed people in this country and all over the world by not only creating and then covering up the leak of the lab created SARS-CoV-2 virus, 66 but by forcing people to mask 67 68 and stay six feet away from each other 69 and buy and use a toxic, genetically engineered pharmaceutical product that not only injures and kills but doesn’t prevent infection and transmission of disease. 70 The societal sanctions used to punish people for refusing to comply with mandatory vaccination policies and laws included loss of the right to work and earn a living, 71 72 73 loss of the right to a college education, 74 loss of the right to work with or serve in the military, 75 loss of the right to get a lifesaving organ transplant, 76 and loss of the right to travel and enter public spaces. 77 78 79 80

What we witnessed was a stunning abuse of authority that struck at the very heart of the definition of liberty and what it means to be free. What we collectively suffered, we will never forget and should not forget.

Liberating Ourselves from the Public Health Empire

PHOTO-Woman-walking-on-path-with-trees-autonomy-copy.jpegOn July 4, 1776, the signers of the Declaration of Independence liberated themselves from abuse of authority by a monarchy ruled by a King. On July 4, 2024, the time has come to liberate ourselves from the systematic abuse being perpetrated by the Public Health Empire, whose leaders worship at the altar of scientism 81 82 83 84 and are forcing their hedonistic and Epicurean 85 86 87 utilitarian 88 89 90 and Marxist 91 values and beliefs on the rest of us to justify compromising the biological integrity of our bodies and the bodies of our children. 92 93

God gave us free will. With that free will, we can choose to do good or choose to do evil or choose to do nothing at all.

The journey we take on this earth is defined by the choices we make, and if we are not free to make choices, then the journey is not our own. The choices that involve risk of harm to our physical body, which houses our mind and spirit, are among the most profound choices we make and why we must be free to make them.

We give up the right to autonomy and voluntary informed consent to medical risk taking at our peril, no matter where or in what century we live.

Just like the patriots who signed the Declaration of Independence and pledged to put their lives, fortunes and sacred honors on the line to secure natural rights for themselves and future generations of Americans, we must do the same 248 years later.

It is time to stop forced vaccination policies and laws and affirm the natural right to autonomy in medical care and public health policy and law. We cannot wait any longer because: 

If the state can tag, track down and force individuals to be injected with biologicals of known and unknown toxicity today, then there will be no limit on which individual freedoms the state can take away in the name of the greater good tomorrow.
