In a truly free country, no governor or president could declare an official emergency. As COVID fascism proves, it’s a blank slate for dictatorship. At a minimum, we should have arrested all public officials who declared emergencies, prosecuted them and ensure they never hold office again. Instead they have been reelected and rewarded as billionaires. It’s a perverse inversion of liberty, justice and rationality from which the U.S. will not recover–until we do it. The last 3 years have been worse than the outrages leading up to 1776. It’s embarrassing to be part of a society so indifferent to its own inalienable rights, rights that earlier generations so valiantly fought and even died for.
Capitalism, properly understood, refers to private ownership, economic freedom and NO government involvement, other than enforcement of property rights. What these creatures have in mind is fascism: control by a few (meaning: them) where government is all powerful, nobody may own their own property (except them) and nobody but the politically connected can be rich.
If you think this is reforming, then you’re an ignorant fool. They are not fools, because they know exactly what they’re doing. They’re just evil.
