Southwest Airlines reports an unprecedented amount of passenger misconduct in the last few weeks– hundreds of incidents [reported at Fox News 5/25/21]. What’s happening? Society is going berserk. Why? Because state, local and national rulers have become authoritarian. They treat us like we’re helpless, unable to think for ourselves or act responsibly, and this is what starts to happen. Many people start to fulfill or “act out” the claim, in part because of simmering rage over the loss of freedom and the utter insanity we are being told to swallow on a daily basis. In turn, these incidents–not just on airplanes, but throughout society–will be used as an excuse to clamp down even more on our few remaining liberties. Watch and see.
