Liberty Revealed Episode 39 Show Notes
Welcome back to another episode of Liberty Revealed, the show dedicated to revealing personal liberty to all who listen. I am your host, Mike Mahony, and today I want to talk to you about why I believe you should oppose lockdowns.
As you are no doubt aware, the response to the COVID pandemic has been to lockdown entire countries. In the United States, this has happened on a state by state basis. What started as a “two weeks to flatten the curve” lockdown has now extended into an 8 month-long period of lockdowns of varying severity.
The issue I have, and it is why I say you, too, should oppose lockdowns, is that this response is not based in scientific evidence despite us being told we need to listen to science.
The World Health Organization has come out against lockdowns. They say lockdowns hurt economies (duh) and are not needed.
Despite the many warnings, California, where I live, is now on lockdown yet again. Some counties have closed up all restaurants. Others have allowed outdoor dining. The problem is there is no logic to any of this.
In Los Angeles County, they’ve insisted all restaurants only be open for takeout, yet restaurants are not in the Top 10 of places they’ve tracked infections to. What’s even more ridiculous is the #4 spot on the list of tracked infections is government offices!
Of the restaurants that have had cases tracked back to them, chains like McDonalds are the only restaurants on the list.
So why are we on lockdown again? Because the government says so and you, the citizens, have allowed it to not only start but to continue in what seems like an indefinite amount of time.
It is times like this that we need to stand up for our rights. Yes, we need to take precautions so we don’t infect the sickly, but that responsibility doesn’t fall solely on our shoulders. Everyone needs to assess the risks and act accordingly. Take the precautions required. Wash your hands. Stay away from close proximity with others. If you must, wear a mask when in public. These are simple things that can help according to the government.
Why aren’t you questioning the government more? Why aren’t you asking “if masks and social distancing work, why is Walmart open and my local burger place has to be closed?”
It is time we all start questioning the lack of logic behind the actions being taken. We all want to minimize the risks associated with the virus, but not at the cost of our livelihoods. These things are only continuing because we have not held the government’s feet to the fire. Get going! Call out your representatives. Demand logical answers. Don’t let them get away with illogical closures. Stop them from doing illogical things.
