Omoo by Herman Melville book review

The unchallenged freedom of walking around Tahiti, enjoying free thought, free action, without face mask or bio-invasive testing and/or injections. A world lost to history.

If I were to travel to Tahiti without a face mask or some kind of test for garbage medical “science” people, I would certainly be arrested and put in FEMA prison camp.

In this story, two adventurers walk around the beautiful island of Tahiti, enjoying the native’s hospitality.

Trying this today will get you killed. Because American idiots made everybody, on every island, put on the face mask and take a fake test to satisfy a depopulation injection program. The natives are restless, and they’re going to kill US.

Will freedom like this ever return? Only after the complete destruction of the system.

Herman Melville confronts the evidence of Euro Colonialism, the destruction of native culture, and the invasive lies of the abominable church.

Enjoy this wonderful book about free travel, thought, and action by Herman Melville.

Highlight: Upon a near approach, the picture loses not its attractions. It is no exaggeration to say that, to a European of any sensibility, who, for the first time, wanders back into these valleys — away from the haunts of the natives — the ineffable repose and beauty of the landscape is such, that every object strikes him like something seen in a dream; and for a time he almost refuses to believe that scenes like these should have a commonplace existence.
Notes: TAHITI.
