Famed podcast host Joe Rogan aggressively championed freedom in a video that he posted to his Instagram this week, warning against giving politicians “any kind of power that didn’t previously exist” because those politicians will exploit the power to take away freedoms.
“As soon as you give politicians power, any kind of power that didn’t exist previously, if they can figure out a way to force you into carrying something that lets you enter businesses or lets you do this or let businesses open, historically, they are not going to give that power up, they find new reasons to use it,” Rogan said. “We have to protect those freedoms at all costs, whether you agree with people’s choices or not, because it is the foundation that this country was founded on, freedom.”
“This idea of freedom, there’s so many people that think it’s frivolous, it’s not important, it’s not the main thing that we should be focused on. But it is the literal structure that allows this country to be so f***ing amazing,” he continued. “Every single country that’s ever existed, other than the United States, up until 1776, every f***ing country that has ever existed, was run by dictators, all of them. This is the first experiment in self government that actually worked, and he created the greatest superpower the world’s ever known. It created the greatest cultural machine, the greatest machine of art and creativity and innovation, right f***ing here.”
“And how did it do that? It did it through freedom,” Rogan continued. “And as soon as you see something, anything that comes along and inhibits your freedom, you should be very cautious about that, you should be very suspicious. Because anything that comes along that can inhibit your freedom is by definition, anti-American.”
