2020 Olympia, WA -- Die with, or Die of? In years past, annual flu deaths have been inflated as people who had the flu when they died of other causes were listed as dying of the flu.
Now the same thing is being done with CV19. And generations that grew up with "we must prevent every preventable death no matter the cost" are now killing people who otherwise would not have died with partial and full quarantines of otherwise healthy people. All to prevent the deaths of those most vulnerable to the flu. And CV19.
In January and February when we had little data, I fully supported individuals taking precautionary measures, and I was reluctantly willing to support temporary government action to prevent an epidemic. But now that the progressives, who are obsessed with imposing their will on everybody else, have their hooks into us they don't want to let go.
What started as "flatten the curve" is tempting progressives to turn it into a permanent state of house arrest.
As an added bonus for them, they get to drive millions of otherwise productive citizens into the waiting arms of the nanny state and ruin the economy, which they hope will allow them to replace Orange Man Bad with a senile sexual predator or, worse, a female figurehead of the global criminal cabal.
Martin Armstrong, of Armstrong Economics, expects that regardless of whether Trump serves a second term, what comes after Trump will make the progressives proud as they lay waste to the economy and culture in their effort to live like parasites on the productive labor of everybody else.
Invariably, of course, that always fails as it goes the way of the USSR where people pretended to work and the government pretended to pay them. Marty says that will culminate around 2032. By which time we will either be well into a grand solar minimum, or just entering into one.
Were it up to me, I'd cut off the progressive parasites. Social safety nets are one thing, those are temporary measures that serve the public good. But neither progressives nor anybody else has the right to enslave the rest of us to support them for life.
Nor should we put up with continuing to lock down otherwise healthy people. Lifting the quarantines will result in some people dying. But letting people eat fast food results in far more deaths, yet we let them do it, anyway. Why should this be any different?
