“Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.”
People in New York, California and Michigan are now living under soft tyranny. When a government can assume, without interference and with the force of law, to restrict one’s movement and self-determination in perpetuity, in the name of presumed safety, it means to ‘govern well,’ but you the citizen are no longer free.
Under rule of law, the governors of these States, and others who have enacted lockdown measures have no scientific evidence to show (only recommendations from a government-funded organization known as the CDC) that lockdowns are an effective way to prevent Covid-19 spread. In fact, many scientists, over 10,000 of the world top scientists, issued a letter four weeks ago (The Barrington Letter) that called for an end to lockdowns, saying such draconian measures only exacerbate Covid-19 infections and is also creating mass starvation and increased poverty worldwide. Suicide, drug abuse, domestic violence, child abuse and people not getting treated for other fatal illnesses are all on the rise everywhere.
And yet these rulers continue to stand firm that restrictive economy-killing measures are the only path to recovery. They mean to govern well.
These same health experts, who have essentially been silenced by American media, say lockdowns are actually slowing down the natural process of herd immunity that develops with most influenza-like flu. Coronavirus is not ebola, nor is it measles or polio. While it it is fatal to between 1 and 2%, and mostly elderly, COVID 19 is actually treatable 99.7% of the time when captured early.
Science is being ignored in the United States. Instead, fear is being perpetuated with nightly exaggerated reports of young people dying, hospitals “under siege,” and health care workers being “overwhelmed.” The fact is these things are happening, but they are the exception, not the rule.
Governors restricting business and citizen activity IS NOT CONStITUTIONAL NOR IS IT LEGAL, but it is allowed to happen because Governors have law enforcement, that can rule by force of law.
Therefore, Governor Gavin Newsom is unlawfully ruling his State because he cannot show lockdown measures are effectively preventing deaths, which has had minimal impact in terms of deaths (the average number of people who die from COVID 19 is under 50 in a state of 45 million people). More people die in California from car accidents on a daily basis than COVID, and yet millions of people are not allowed to move about freely, nor are business owners allowed to operate and generate a living income, not to mention the scores of people who are unable to work as a result of the lockdowns enacted without committee.
Technically, Gavin Newsom, Andrew Cuomo and Gretchen Whitmer are totalitarian state leaders who have no oversight. They might not look like Xi Jinping, but they operate under the same authority.
Don’t believe me? invite 20 people to your house today, right now. See how long it takes before the police show up. Try serving in your restaurant today in Manhattan before health inspectors show up with law enforcement to arrest you and charge you with a felony crime. Try sending you kid to school today in Detroit. No, keep him home so he fall behind in his education and be permanently one grade or two behind.
The fact that these governors have not been contested is remarkable. It only took three months for nation States in the most free country on the planet to revert to a totalitarianism.
Come to Florida, before you can’t.
