The coronavirus, the government, and lunacy.
I will try to keep this brief to stick to the point. I live in Los Angeles and the video above is our mayor, Eric Garcetti.
Our mayor, in front of national television, stood at the podium and suggested neighbors rat each other out for coronavirus protocol violations, encouraging them by telling them "snitches get rewards," smiling the whole way through like a comic book villain.
This is no different than communism. That is not an exaggeration. People are suffering right now financially (many already were), and the city of Los Angeles is preying on their desparation and fear. It is trying to turn people against each other.
You can go out jogging, you can go to the grocery store where everyone else in your neighborhood who is probably infected goes and touch food, but you cannot go to work or anywhere the government says. If you are trying to rationalize our government's behavior, this does not line up with health concerns.
In addition, Dr. Michael J. Ryan, executive director of the World Health Organization suggested that it may be necessary to have authorities forcibly remove potentially infected persons from their homes and families. He said this on camera comfortably, casually.
There was not one word of due process in either of these instances.
This is not normal. Even if you want to believe there are good intentions behind these decisions (I don't), you will likely not gain your freedom back. Considering how this outbreak is expected to last for another few months, and how it is assumed to return for more rounds, you're looking at a massive shift in economy and the mandates surrounding them. There will be a point where there is no turning back from the new standard, and at that point, corrupt powers will take advantage of it and you will be even more helpless to them than you are now.
If authorities do intend to enter people's homes without permission, you are undeniably looking at war.
If you think I have tin foil on my head after exploring these things for yourself I don't know what to tell you.
I encourage you not to feed the beast, and I encourage you to prepare for the worst even if it doesn't happen.
