COVID-19 Lockdowns: Liberty and Science

The Chinese Coronavirus (COVID-19) hit American shores — officially, anyway, there is
significant evidence that it arrived earlier — in late January 2020. The American public
was then told that a two-week shutdown of the economy would “flatten the curve,”
relieving the pressure on hospital intensive care units and saving lives in the long run.

The average American, including conservatives, being people of good faith, complied,
thinking that this was a common-sense measure that would save lives in the wake of a
new and mysterious pandemic.

But two things quickly happened:
First, the goalposts moved. No longer was it enough
to “flatten the curve.” Now we were to be locked down until there was a cure.
No longer was it enough to “flatten the curve.” Now we were to be locked down until
there was a cure.

Even the cure was not enough for some figures like the lionized-by-liberals Dr. Anthony
Fauci — we would continue to be locked down even after a vaccine had been rammed
through the approvals process with limited testing. When would we be allowed out by
our masters? No one could answer this.

Second, there was an intensification of the authoritarian measures. Some states, aided
by Big Tech, introduced “contact tracing” where people had to sign in with extensive
personal information if they wanted to, for example, eat out at a restaurant. This was so
that, in the event of infection with COVID-19, the state health department would be able
to track and trace everyone you had contact with.

We should add that a third thing didn’t so much “happen” but was discovered: As it turns
out unless you are old (over the age of 65), morbidly obese or suffer from a
complicating disorder (such as diabetes or asthma), COVID-19 was little more than a
bad cold or the flu.
