Is the Coronavirus serious? Yes. Should you quarantine yourself if you have it? Absolutely. Are there even a small number of hotspots like NYC and New Jersey that should have stay-at-home orders in place? Yes.
However, does the majority of the country need to be locked down? No. Is there any excuse for government officials to ask citizens to inform on each other or to rope off what they’ve decided are “non-essential” parts of stores so consumers can’t go there? No way.
I have always thought of myself as a hardcore, pro-cop conservative, but every time I hear a story about cops harassing someone for walking on an empty public beach or yanking some guy off a train for not wearing a mask, the first thing that goes through my head is…
Personally, I am sick of these dumb, unnecessary quarantines being pushed by power-mad government officials that are getting off on ordering everyone around. C.S. Lewis wrote about people like this more than 70 years ago.
