What’s It All For Anyway?

Is the lockdown a good idea? Is it necessary? Does it do more good than harm? Does it even work? Are we even allowed to discuss these matters without being called names?

Has anyone even asked who we are doing this lockdown for? Consider “What’s It All For Anyway?”

Observe. Love without wisdom can be used to excuse lots of atrocities. One nation can exterminate another because the murderers love their own nation, and they want what those vermin — those not people — have for their nation.

What about the tradeoffs? Is it best for children to live full lives? Because love them, we can keep our children out of school, ignorant, and lonely. Yet COVID-19 poses little danger to children. Children don’t even seem to spread the virus.

Should we bury the old before they are dead? Because we love them, we can confine the old in solitary protect them from disease. Why not put them in a coffin? Buried six feet under would be the safest place from disease.

Can we serve others if we separate ourselves from everyone? No? Yet our leaders tell us that because we love people, we must completely isolate ourselves from our family, friends, neighbors, and countrymen. That’s living?

When does our noble solitary confinement end? Does it end when the people we all trust, the most hypocritical of politicians, decide they are tired of exercising new found powers?

Because we love, our news media’s most beloved leaders demand that we nobly surrender our lives and just give up our freedom to them without a fight. They insist we stay in our foxholes, cover ourselves with dirt, and let their ridiculous regulations overrun us. Instead of working for a noble cause, a free country, they command us to lazily pretend we did something noble by obeying them and doing nothing. This they tell us is what it means to love.

Freedom Through Empowerment

In this fabulous Medium post by A.J. Kay, the author asks, “if safety requires us to indefinitely forfeit the most valuable parts of our lives, what exactly are we trying to save?”

She then goes on to smartly point out that with a 2.8 million annual  (in America) all cause death toll, this could be the last Thanksgiving for some of our loved ones or perhaps even ourselves.  Do we really want to spend it isolated from the people we care about most because it’s not safe to gather?

Or freezing our butts off outside while keeping our masks on between bites of turkey à la Gavin Newsom and his beyond absurdly comical  coronavirus dictates that HE AND HIS HEALTH ADVISORS DON’T EVEN FOLLOW THEMSELVES?

Oh hell no.  Loneliness and isolation were were big enough problems  before COVID, I can’t imagine how much they’ve grown now that we’ve institutionalized s

      I see the article says South Korea is raising its social distancing levels too. Looks like the virus just slowed down because of the warm weather. Nobody has it under control.

      1. Exactly.
        And now that the election is over, I suspect there will be a more realistic analysis.
        At least…dare to dream.

  1. We’ve looked into therapy for one of our sons….this confinement has been really really hard on him in particular. He was able to talk to a counselor at the university, but only twice in two months due to the high volume of students needed this service.
    Now we’re trying to get someone with our healthcare coverage.
    We’re told there is a long wait due to…again, extraordinarily high volume.
    At any rate, the Denver airport still has only one train running so people are packed in like cattle. To save energy costs. The airport restaurants and bars are open and packed, but outside restaurants are required to shut down at five. #Science!

    Anyway, hope you all have an excellent holiday. I do feel grateful and blessed. More so than I deserve.

      The lockdown is absurd hardship upon young people. Makes no sense.

      Happy Thanksgiving! I hope our young people learn at least two things from this experience: to trust in God and to appreciate what God meant when He said it is not good for man to be alone.
