Ceded Authority

Now That You’ve Ceded Authority Once…

Now that you’ve ceded authority to the government for the supposed sake of your safety and everyone else’s once, what now? What about the next time the would-be dictators, benevolent or not, want to strip your constitutional rights away under the penumbra of it being for your health and safety and that of everyone else?

You’ve Set A Precedent

You’ve set a precedent, a precedent that the government at any level can freely violate most parts of the 1st Amendment if they rationalize it as being for the sake of public. Precedents are hard to overturn once established, especially if they’ve been accepted by any court.

And, when a precedent favors the government by expanding their control, it will be used again, each time with a little broader scope or in a context a little further away from whatever crisis was the basis for setting that precedent.

In the wake of the Wuhan Virus aka the CCP Virus aka COVID-19, it’s really important to fight against Sinophobia. It is, however, also important to stay as safe as possible. 😉

Pandemic!

That's Why We Call It A "Pandemic!"
That’s Why We Call It A “Pandemic!”

Oh yeah! I’m sure that there’s going to be all sorts of follow-on lamentations about how the lock-downs and various “Shelter in Place” laws will have resulted in an expansion of people’s waistlines only equaled by the contraction of our nation’s economy.

Scale Of The Closures

Scale Of The Closures
The Scale Of The Closures Says A Lot, None Of It Good

Just something to think about. Since the first of the shutdowns / closures enacted by various politicians, the big box stores have been allowed to stay open while almost every small business has been forced to shutdown, often by threat of draconian reprisals.
