💛 Five-Point Update (the only things that matter, a word on freedom, and snake venom)
You're going to love today's newsletter!
Look within. Within is the fountain of good, and it will ever bubble up, if thou wilt ever dig.
Hi From Glenn!
I hope you are having a fantastic day!
Part of going through life (hopefully) is that we realize what our values are and how we can best serve life.
I now realize that there are only two things in life that matter: love and freedom.
These are the two things that make life better for everyone involved. They are the source of true happiness. They give life purpose and meaning.
Love is why we exist. We are here to learn how to love. That is it. Period.
Freedom gives us the ability to explore life, have fun and serve.
These two qualities are divine. They come from God. And we are the stewards of love and freedom. It is our responsibility to cherish these qualities. We should do what we can to expand their presence in this world.
When we have each passed away and are looking back on whether this life was a success or failure, I think the only question that will be asked is, “Were we good stewards of the divine qualities of love and freedom?”
I think it’s a good question to ask ourselves on a regular basis.
Here are some things to contemplate…
How can you open your heart to God’s love?
The first step is to love yourself as God loves you (God loves you unconditionally).
Accept God’s love.
As God’s love enters your heart and fills you with warmth, give it out unconditionally.
And remember that you are free. Cherish this freedom. But remember that to be free, you must give others freedom. Let people be.
Here are the 5 points I think you will like today (plus, at the very end I have a business for sale)…
🙏 FIRST, this is very gratifying…
As you know, I had an interview with John Bush a couple days ago about how you can protect your freedom. I want to share a wonderful email I received about this interview...
Hi Glenn, I wanted to thank you for the interview you did with John Bush. It was just what I was looking for at a time where I was at a crossroads in my life and looking for signs on the direction I should take. Thank you so much for this life-changing interview. L.H.
I appreciate these amazing words! As a reminder, May 13th - 15th, John is hosting the Exit & Build Summit, which is the world’s first and only event that gives you proven strategies and hands-on guidance for buying land, building homesteads, and creating intentional communities based on liberty and independence. This is a free, online event. Register now!
🗽 SECOND, a word about freedom.
It’s really sad that the concept of freedom itself has been politicized. We must remember that individual freedom is the Soul of America. Our rights come from God, not from the government.
Here is a great explanation of individual freedom. Please take time to read it.
“Individualism is an idea of society that champions individual liberty, creativity, and self-reliance. A thriving society cannot be engineered by the collectivist designs of central planners, sociology professors, or government economists. Rather, it is is the combined effects of individual actions and the spontaneous collaborations of free people that produce economic growth, cultural vitality, and social well being.
Individualism is captured in the idea of America: a nation of individuals, each endowed with economic freedom, self-reliant in applying their own energy and creativity to advance their own circumstances and, in collaboration with others, contributing to an expanding economy, a stronger society, and growing well-being for all.
Individualism is not just an abstract theory. It has been put to the test throughout human history, and has proven itself time and time again to be the greatest engine for social and economic progress that the world has ever seen. Individualism transformed a group of disjointed European colonies into the most free and prosperous nation in history. It fueled the rise of free market capitalism, which has raised the standard of living in the developed world by 3,000 percent in 200 years. Today, individualism is the driving force behind the technological revolution that is improving the well being of people throughout the world.
Unfortunately, individualism today is often accused of promoting selfishness and greed at the expense of the common good. Some argue that individualism perpetuates economic inequality, motivates corporate and political corruption, and leads to the fragmentation of society. Such accusations could not be more false. The true individualist is neither selfish, disconnected, nor corrupt. The individualist understands that each person can best achieve their own ambitions by working collaboratively with others in a way that benefits not only themselves, but society at large. And since each individual’s self-interest motivates them to act for the benefit of others, individualism makes altruists out everyone in society.
Since the self-interested actions of individuals create social progress, the common good is best served when each individual is liberated and empowered to pursue their own aspirations. To truly thrive, a society must liberate its members from the burdensome regulations and social pressures that result from collectivist approaches. It must inspire its members with an entrepreneurial spirit and teach them the value of self-reliance.
Freedom is the source of peace, prosperity and happiness in a society. Please share your thoughts.

👩🍼 THIRD, I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again…
Of all the terrible things that politicians have done over the past two years, the worst has been what they’ve done to our children. As Pearl Buck said, “The test of a civilization is the way that it cares for its helpless members.”
In this test, we have failed.
Our children are being abused (yes ABUSED!) by schools, teachers, the medical community and a political climate that is intentionally ripping away their identity.
First, schools and teachers brutally enforce the mask mandate on children, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE NOT AT RISK FROM THE ILLNESS!
Yes, this is what the science says…
Only 0.2% of COVID deaths have happened in people under 25 years old. In fact, anyone under twenty years old is 1,000 times LESS LIKELY to die from the virus than an 80 year old!
So what? What’s the harm in masking children? Beyond taking away their freedom to be children, have fun, interact with others in a healthy way, the damage is real…
Mask-Wearing Has Left A Generation Of Toddlers Struggling With Speech And Social Skills
Reading Ability of Children Plummets Compared to Pre-COVID Times
A speech therapist says her clinic has seen a "364% increase in patient referrals of babies and toddlers.
Seeing people’s smiles, expressions of concern and other facial expressions are vital for children’s emotional development. Not only does wearing masks deprive children of emotional health, but it deprives them of love, and no greater evil can there be.
Second, in my opinion, it is simply dangerous and borderline criminal (I’m sorry if that seems harsh, but that’s how I feel) to give children unnecessary gene therapy, which is what our government now calls vaccines. No matter what they say, this technology has NOT been proven. We do not know the long term effects. AND IT IS UNNECESSARY. See the graph above.
Third, as you know, our rights come from God, not the government. One of our sacred rights and duties is that we are responsible for raising our children and for teaching them our values. The woke forces that are trying to steal your children’s values, sanity and identity have an agenda. They do not love your children. They don’t care about your child. Rather, they only care about forwarding their agenda.
We MUST stand up for our children. Homeschool if you can. Stand up to your school board. Run for your school board. Organize other parents. Stand up for children.
🐍 FOURTH, snake venom…
I have received a lot of questions about whether distillation takes snake venom out of water. I really don’t know the back story of this question, but I asked our resident chemistry expert at my father’s company, and this is his answer…
In response to your question, we need to look at the properties of snake venoms.
These are the properties of snake venom:
Snake venoms are complex mixtures of enzymes and proteins of various sizes, amines, lipids, nucleosides, and carbohydrates. Venoms also contain various metal ions that are presumed to act as cofactors and include sodium, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and zinc.
Although we have not specifically tested for the removal of snake venom of any type, based on its chemical an physical properties of its components, we would be almost 100% sure that distillation would remove the various components of snake venom.
If you are not aware, my father’s company was the first producer of premium water distillers for homes, and they are still number one. They produce excellent products, that are made right here in the USA. Please check them out here.
🤣 FIFTH, this is pretty funny…
💰 FINALLY, I am selling one of my businesses.
I am selling one of my websites. Years ago I created the website www.PrepperShowsUSA.com as a service to the community so we could properly organize the different events in the space. It’s a good site that works on autopilot. I literally have spent 10 minutes on the site over the past two years. Show organizers simply go on the site and post their own shows. At one point, it was bringing in quite a bit of money every month in advertising revenue, but then the prepper industry slowed down and I stopped doing anything with the site. It still ranks at number one for prepper expos, prepper events and it ranks number two for prepper shows. If you wanted a business that takes very little effort, and I think has great potential, please reach out to me by replying to this email.
I hope you liked this newsletter! Please forward this issue to everyone you know who loves freedom!
J Will is correct that JA did say that our Constitution will only well serve a moral people. I submit that only a moral people would strive to increase love & freedom throughout their society. So in essence, both of you are essentially agreeing with one another! God Bless You Both! Bob
Regarding your comments on individualism, I agree wholeheartedly with the following proviso. One of the Founders (Adams?) said something to the effect that our form of government can only work in a moral society. Given the successful assaults over the past decades on what constitutes a moral society, one has to question how long we can survive as a representative republic. Absent a third great awakening, I have my concerns. J.W.
