Isolated from friends and family.
Schools closed, so our children cannot see or play with their friends; in fact, being taught to fear their friends.
Churches closed. Movie theaters, retail shops, bars and restaurants closed (these are all the places where we socialize together).
Stuck at home. Working from home, distant from colleagues and supervisors
Jobs lost, so people lose their sense of purpose in life.
Information about the disease itself, and about how individuals should respond to it, inconsistent and unreliable.
Government so-called “experts”, giving contradictory advice on a daily basis. University computer “modelers” predicting apocalypse regularly, but changing the parameters so nothing is ever constant.
Elderly people in congregate-care facilities even more isolated, forbidden to see their own families, dying alone and in despair.
People required to wear a mask over their face, the one feature of the body that makes a person human. Unseen: smiles of satisfaction, frowns of concern, kids’ tongues sticking out at their friends’ good-natured teasing. Seen: lineups outside stores, dozens of people with no faces, just blank masks, Six Feet Apart
Citizens encouraged by Governments to inform on neighbors and strangers; asked to turn in their neighbors for violations of mask-wearing and physical-distancing guidelines. Re-creating the East German Stasi secret police in the United States of America.
And to add insult to injury, Summer Events that define the Summer season are cancelled. July 4 festivities everywhere are cancelled; the Bellevue Arts & Crafts Fair is cancelled; the Seattle Chamber Music Festival concerts are cancelled in person-online just isn’t the same. Not only do you have to go around wearing a mask, all of your social events are cancelled. This is criminal, and very depressing to the populace.
They’ve got us right where they want us. Cowed, afraid of our friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Looking over our shoulders whenever we are away from home, watching everywhere for the snitches, just ready to call the enforcers to slap us with misdemeanor charges for refusing to hide behind the mask. And if, as expected, the promised Wuhan Coronavirus Vaccine does NOT make its appearance any time soon, this state of affairs will be UNENDING.
They are Destroying American Society, with malice aforethought. Be very careful of complying with every government “guideline”-they are leading you to disaster.
Are you ready to cower forever, afraid of an unseen virus that 96% of us, even if we get sick, will survive? Not I, said the Patriot.
