Today’s read is from Scott Morefield, a reporter for The Daily Caller and a weekly columnist at Townhall, and it’s a gem. Here’s an excerpt, followed by the column in its entirety that you don’t want to miss.
To say these draconian lockdowns, unscientific mandates, and bizarre restrictions have been entirely disproportionate to the actual threat would be the understatement of the century. They have been a gross, pathological, hard-to-believe-it’s-not-intentional OVERreaction.
Society has turned itself into a pretzel in a futile attempt to prevent anyone from dying of or with COVID-19, even though the survival rate is well above 99.5% and the vast majority of those who have died with the virus would have likely soon been dead of something else. We have destroyed livelihoods, futures, and even lives in this Quixotic quest, yet have accomplished absolutely nothing except paving the way for further tyranny down the road exchanged for a false sense of security and protection. In the name of ‘saving’ humanity, we have tragically undermined and destroyed so many things that bring joy to life.
So where does this all end?
The irrational fear these hypochondriacs can’t let go of has made life intolerable for the living in countless places worldwide.
