I left a comment on this post, King Solomon Blog, Eating the Fruit of Own Devices? (rudymartinka.com). Even though both that post and my comment are a bit depressing, you may find both that post and my comment interesting.
Should we be depressed? No. Jesus overcame the world a couple of thousand years ago. Moreover, there are still people out there who still retain the capacity to think and believe in something beyond whatever a man can do. Check out Let’s Celebrate Judge Walker (insanitybytes2.wordpress.com).
Whenever something bad happens, of course we have to do our best to straighten out the mess and get on with our lives. We also need to learn from our experience. So, think! Are you sitting at home, frustrated, with nothing to do? Then, THINK! Why did this happen? How could we have avoided it? What do we need to change?
In a few weeks the Coronavirus (COVID-19) will be part of our history, our past.
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. — George Santayana (from here)
Never before have we shut down our economy just to deal with a disease. Was it the right thing to do? The Trump administration can probably justify what they did initially because they did not know how lethal the virus was. However, some people want to continue the shutdown, and that is nuts! If we know who is contagious, who has already had the disease, and who because of age and/or a medical condition could be seriously harmed by the disease, we don’t need to quarantine everybody. We just need to quarantine a few people.
Unfortunately, some busybodies see opportunities in the troubles of others. To increase their own power, to implement an agenda that they could not otherwise implement, these busybodies seize powers they have no business having. We need to put those busybodies in their place. We need to remember our nation’s history. Our nation’s founders gave us the Constitution. We need to use the powers that document gives us to shut down the schemes of those power mad busybodies.
