Anthony Fauci’s constant prattle about the dangers of opening up are falling on deaf ears.
The real enemy is not a shadowy foreign power plotting to take away our freedoms, as during the Cold War, but rather it is much closer to home. While the virus is invisible, the people who dreamed up and enforced lockdowns that wrecked the country are highly visible.
The paper of record in 2020 shifted dramatically to the most illiberal stance possible on the virus, pushing for full lockdowns, and ignoring or burying any information that might contradict the case for this unprecedented experiment in social and economic control.
Let those who desire to suffer be free to do so. As for the rest of us, let us get back to having good lives, including partaking in actual fun.
The lockdowns are looking less like a gigantic error and more like the unfolding of a fanatical political ideology and policy experiment that attacks core postulates of civilization at their very root.
Governor Ron DeSantis has proven it: it is actually possible for a politician to wise up and do the right thing. In a sweeping order announced September 25, the governor has opened up the entire economy.
The people with everything to gain from the lockdowns had nothing to lose; the people who had nothing to gain lost everything.
Why did the coronavirus produce a social and economic calamity, whereas the H1N1 (Swine flu) from ten years ago is barely remembered by most people.
