Politicians and the public are alarmingly willing to violate civil liberties in the name of fighting the epidemic. FULL STORY

COVID-19 As Precedent For Authortarianism?

Post by Riddick » 04-02-2020 12:16 PM

Excerpted from Dennis Prager's Mar. 17th column:

President Donald Trump announced a ban on flights from China on Jan. 31 -- for which he was denounced by leading Democrats and throughout the left. The very next day, presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden declared, "This is no time for Donald Trump's record of hysteria and xenophobia -- hysterical xenophobia -- and fearmongering."

On Feb. 2, the American Civil Liberties Union announced, "These measures are extraordinary incursions on liberty and fly in the face of considerable evidence that travel bans and quarantines can do more harm than good."

The current consensus favors near total social isolation, or "social distancing," as it is now called. The thinking is that we must shut down the Western world to prevent the exponential growth of the virus. If we don't, our hospital systems will be overwhelmed. Many thousands, maybe more, would die, as doctors have to make grisly triage decisions as to who gets care and who doesn't.

Is this thinking correct? The truth is we don't know. We can only be certain that shutting down virtually every part of society will result in a large number of people economically ruined, life savings depleted, decades of work building a restaurant or some other small business destroyed. Yet the longer-term ripple effects are potentially far worse. Economic disasters rarely remain only economic disasters.

To give a particularly dramatic example, the Nazis came to power because of economics more than any other single reason, including Germany's defeat in World War I, the Versailles Treaty or anti-Semitism. Nazi success at the polls was almost entirely related to the Weimar economy. Communist parties don't fare well in robust economies, but they're very tempting when people are in dire economic straits.

Only God knows what economic dislocation the shutting down of American and other Western economies will lead to. I am not predicting a Nazi or communist ascendancy, but economic and political disaster may be as likely, or even more likely, than a health disaster.

But here is a prediction: If the government can order society to cease functioning, from restaurants and other businesses to schools, due to a possible health disaster, it is highly likely a Democratic president and Congress will similarly declare emergency and assert authoritarian rule in order to prevent what they consider the even greater "existential threat" to human life posed by global warming.

The dam has been broken. Maybe it was necessary. But when dams break, flooding follows.

We Never Signed On For Government By Epidemiologists

If the purpose of life were to avoid disease at all costs, what the epidemiologists and their models suggested would make perfect sense — but life is not simply about avoiding death. FULL STORY

It's NOT the Covid, killing the last tattered pages of the Constitution, it is the Communist Left, that is Killing Every Thing ,you might have held "Dear" in your way of life! I remember so many conversations, where just plain old "Hatred" led the way of the non-reasoning sheep. "KEEP America Great" was probably the most hated phrase amongst the Obamie brainwashed, it was "Kool" and "Hip" to join the clueless "Hate Train" to Some Promised, Utopia. Having over looked one tinesy , little thing, like WHO was leading the "Parade of Empty Promises". I really don't care much about those who easily jumped on the "Fantasy Utopia" Train to Hell, they can Never be convinced other wise, even as they watch their possessions being removed, hate sheilds, from reality, like nothing else. My concern is for those who are watching the "Train Wreck" that we knew was coming. Those still Human.

In the mean time , I wonder what the "True Believers" think they are going to find, when they come out of their house in 3 or 4 years, if that soon? "Fear of Death" is crippeling , to the still sort of "living" somehow it has been conveyed that if you mind the "Insane Communist Directives" you won't die! Death is NOT the Enemy (NOT to suggest, that killing yourself is a good thing, It is NOT!.) Death, is a natural progression, not a punishment. Where you end up at, is , related to what you Learned, as you "Lived Your Life" it can be a graduation, or living again and again UNTILL you at least learned "Something"! Being "Teachable" is helpful as opposed to Hatefully Irrational in your current life. In a way , I would Suppose, that the saying "Life is NOT for Cowards" is a true statement. But, living WELL, and keeping your eyes on your self, Despite Everything Else ,would be a nice goal.
"Progress, not Perfection" is the motto, As there is not One perfect Human on this Planet! Utopia is NOT on this Planet !

Hey, who has to work when you can get a government check? Yeah, like that's going to end well.

Will COVID-19 Kill The Constitution?

No......The Democrats WILL :evil:
Listening to Rush today, and brought up a very interesting FACT.

People of Color are hit the hardest with the COVID 19 VIRUS. For the last week , Blacks have been encouraged, by the Democrats , to come on down and riot, get as close as you want, masks not really necessary, just loot and burn, like you have been paid for..............

OK........Are we going to see the Covid wipe out black people in about 20 to 30 days?


If not .........Was" Covid 19" just another "Lefty" Hoax to destroy the Country?
