As long as things run smoothly, people go about their daily lives without much to worry about or be concerned with.
But when things go awry and suddenly, what was once stable becomes unstable, chaos generally ensues because that is what panic foments.
Americans are no different and, in many ways, we are far more pampered by our own success than the vast majority of people on the planet. And we're about ready to find out just what real chaos looks like.
Already there is major pushback against Joe Biden's vaccine mandates for companies with 100 or more employees. And while a month has gone by since he made the announcement, on Thursday he said the Labor Department was about to issue an "emergency rule" mandating that companies with 100 or more employees must order them to be vaccinated for COVID-19.
That isn't going to go over well, and in fact, major industries are already prepared to make all of us feel the pain, including the airlines because a growing number of pilots are not going to get one and if they don't, they'll be fired, and if they're fired, guess what? They won't be flying -- passengers, cargo, or anything else we need to function in today's modern society.
According to the site Team Tucker Carlson:
An airline pilot and activist for individual liberty told Fox News on Monday that situations such as mass flight cancelations will become more common if the Biden administration refuses to backdown from its hardline stance against coercing Americans to get vaccinated against COVID.
Speaking on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Joshua Yoder, a commercial airline pilot and the co-founder of a group called U.S. Freedom Flyers, cautioned that events such as this past weekend’s Southwest Airlines flight cancellations could soon be unavoidable.
The reason: Yoder said the people who do skilled jobs, such as flying planes and driving trucks, will stand against President Joe Biden and their own employers.
“My motive for resisting [the COVID vaccine] is primarily religious for myself,” Yoder told Fox News host Tucker Carlson earlier this week.
“Among my friends, I saw a need. Many of us don’t want to take this. People were being coerced. I believe in freedom, and I’m here to support the freedom of my fellow employees and all people across this country.”
“I’m not going to take a mandate. I’m not going to be forced to do something that I don’t believe in,” he added.
“If you have flights reduced by 30 percent because 30 percent of pilots are fired because they won’t take the vaccine, this is going to affect how your goods get here from overseas, how they are distributed to the store,” he said when the host asked him to describe the effect on the national transportation infrastructure.
“The same thing is happening with the truckers; it’s happening in the shipping industry. Those Amazon boxes that typically show up in two days, you might be looking at three weeks,” he continued.
And Yoder was plain as to who is responsible for this mess.
“It’s squarely his [Biden’s] fault,” he said.
“First of all, we have all the control, and the control comes from a simple word, and that’s ‘no,’” he said. “We just don’t need to comply. As far as I’m concerned, I will never promote a sick-out or a work action that is illegal. With U.S. Freedom Flyers, the organization I’m with, we will never promote such a thing. With that being said, we also cannot control the actions of individuals.”
“And I think that you will see massive disruptions in [the] supply chain and in your travel if we just stand up and say no,” he said. “If these companies fire us and they fire 30% of the workforce, aircraft are going to stop moving, and it’s going to affect you. It’s going to affect your air travel, and it’s going to affect the economy.”
The collapse is proceeding apace, America. Hope you stocked up.
