You hear this a lot from your masters in government: “Refusing the [medication] is your choice, but you will suffer the consequences if you do.” Or something along those lines. This is the typical bluster of the abuser—“Look what you made me do!”
Tyranny is not the fault of the master, you see, but of the slave. If you only obeyed, you would not need to be punished. This is how they sleep at night. The ball is always in your court…it’s always up to you. That they make all the rules and you are forced to play the game, well, that bit they always conveniently ignore.
What the ruling class is really asserting is the ownership of your choice, which of course means that you have no choice. What is being told to you is: “Choose what we want you to choose or we will disable or destroy your ability to make choices”. Meaning that if your refuse them they will steal your property, banish you from society, throw you in prison, pen you in a concentration camp, or murder you.
“Dictated choice” is a contradiction in terms.
