Challenging The Tyrants

Postby 69roadrunner » Thu May 07, 2020 9:25 am

A woman in the US challenged her denile of not being able to work and feed her children. The movement is growing, she is not alone.
A little side note, a Go Fund Me account was started in support of her, so far in less than a week more than $500,000 has been raised.
How much more can the people take from the tyrants? ... alon-open/

Yep. Crazy times. No matter how hard the numbers are manipulated they just don’t seem to warrant the global lockdown. I’m really trying hard nowadays to keep an open mind towards both perspectives. Personally, I’ve been thinking the virus is overhyped for political and economic gains. The “stimulus plan” passed in March in the USA is a very obvious example.

Lately, however, I’ve been “trying on” the perspective that this is a bio weapon on a trajectory to absolutely destroy the health of all societies. All points of view have their weak points. For this latter view, I’d like to see more evidence that this virus isn’t “just another flu.” I would’ve expected to see more deaths by now. What we have isn’t very catastrophic.
