When the ‘Bravo Sierra’ of the collectivist’s agenda of forceful ideals is happening right in front of your eyes, and your constitutional and personal rights are being trodden upon with the ulterior deep state intentions of being stolen (and nobody is doing anything), it is, from the way I understand it, called bystander apathy.
We’d like to thank Mark A. Rossetti Sr. for this op-ed. If you have an Op-Ed or Letter, you would

The term bystander apathy (i.e., fence-sitting) refers to the phenomenon in which the greater the number of people present during an emergent or oncoming danger to our liberty; the less likely people are to help defend those being affected in patriotic groups, in our State or within our Nation… in or during distress …from being secured. When an emergency occurs, observers are more likely to take action if there are few or no other witnesses …and Lefty, the Lawmaker, knows this.
Let’s think deeply about people’s unwillingness to act in an emergency. As I understand it, two major factors contribute to bystander apathy;
First, the presence of other people, or the fear of personal recrimination …creates a diffusion of responsibility;
Secondly, because people intrinsically know that there are other observers, or individuals do not feel as much pressure to take action, since the responsibility to take action is thought to be shared among all of those present, which is in our case, it is to be seen within our States, and Nationally. Most people will not act until the Collectivistic thug is breaking down their door…
Generally speaking, the greater the numbers of people present and observing during an emergency, an action against our rights, or during a coup, the less likely people are to take action. Meanwhile, a slumbering nation, numbed by the specter of bystander apathy, continues to slide into the clutches of genocidal collectivism. And look, we all grew up knowing that God does for those …who take action and do for themselves and others…
This, my fellow Patriots …is one of our major hurdles to overcome in the struggle and fight to keep our States, Nation, and ourselves free… I know exactly what I would suggest, please, but don’t ask me.
Finding out for your self will have no value if you do not get off of the fence and actuate… by seeking out the answer for your self, because in the end …by growing a courageous, fearless heart and spine, you will be much happier than if you did not!
