It seems every day now that we are told by some government official or mainstream media scold that we must pay more, restrict our activities more, change how we speak, and little by little lose the freedoms we once took for granted. The draconian and unscientific pandemic lockdowns are a case in point. The supposed public good became of paramount importance, overshadowing any sense of individual freedom.
And now, the climate scare is increasingly giving woke power-hungry politicians yet another reason to sacrifice our rights as individuals, this time to supposedly save the planet. This is all part of a dangerous trend toward increasing collectivism, and eventually communism.
To discuss these troubling developments and to help us see a way forward, we are joined in this program by Mike Gemmell, the Founder and President of Restore Our American Republic (ROAR). ROAR’s mission is to initiate political and cultural reform for the purpose of restoring the foundation of individualism in America. Prior to founding ROAR, Mike was a geologist specializing in groundwater resource development, a technical writer, and a freelance writer addressing environmental and other cultural issues.
Mike Gemmell’s work in recent years has focused on the role of the public interest principle and its misuse in the area of environmental research and public health. This has resulted in the entrenching of an anti-individualist ideology in government agencies of the U.S. that is hostile to personal liberty and freedom of choice.
