Goofy schemes must have worked: they happened, after all. The difference between a trend and whether or not it’s wise may be lost on those who charmingly believe coercion spurs cooperation.
The existence of rather mandatory initiatives is curiously presented as proof they’re wise. Joe Biden is continuing his last boss’s record of making you do things then declaring that means they help. Obamacare remaining law is its namesake’s best argument for it. Don’t point out why having to buy crummy insurance sucks, as it’ll confuse poor Barack Obama.
When your ideology is based in force, getting what you want has nothing to do with whether people decided to pursue a course that turned out beneficially. Donning Skidz to see MC Hammer must have been cool because it occurred. You don’t have to regret 1990, phew.
The simple act of invasively agonizing maneuvers happening is proclaimed as a victory for collectivism. I hate to offer a counterargument to those whose ideology is based in eliminating options. That said, something that occurs may be bad. That update may seem obvious. But enthusiastic statists who think this freaking incumbent is going to make America and life better by burning trillions faster need remedial review of everything you find basic.
The difference between getting what government goons demand and whether their costly tantrums prompt effective outcomes is like believing pizza should make you lose weight. Governors fast-tracking restrictions on life without having to wait for some pesky legislature to tinker with a bill didn’t turn out quite as swell as they dreamed, what with the dire consequences. Dictatorial dreams are even more chilling when we endure the ghastly results of the pompous putzes who hold them.
There was no debate is you’re trying to recall when you were consulted. Being told what not to do by force of quasi-law crushed the economy and human spirit in a way the virus wasn’t. Gubernatorial proclamations turn out to be even more agonizing than signed laws. Executives bypassing legislatures are the equivalent to biblical prophecies for those who treat politicians as gods. We know now more than ever which afterworld figure they adulate.
It’s so inspiring to relinquish individuality if the alleged common good is at stake. Action taken by all is bound to make the mob in question happy. Crowds seem so wise. Surely, the sense of being trapped in a hive leads to good calls. There’s a surprising lack of honey produced.
Those who profess universal happiness the ultimate goal always just happen to want you to conform to what they think it should be. It only sounds selfish because you’re still thinking for yourself. Check with the group before you announce it’s cool.
I’m almost impressed by the level of smugness conjured by thinking every drag on human behavior is saving those being bothered. It’s too bad that making a show of acting like you’re helping doesn’t create joy. A mask truly is a sign.
Ganging up to target is the precise opposite of tough. You may not have much luck convincing a cruelty gang that their actions are both irrational and immoral. Fear expressed as aggressive hysteria is the defining characteristic of our oh so enlightened era. A mob mentality is presently popular when said mob is terrified that exhaling causes genocide. Didn’t anyone in the group study science?
The only thing more horrifying than the concept is the result. It still feels like we’re hung over. We didn’t precisely enjoy intoxication. A sense of regret is never found amongst those who should feel it most.
Politicians who want to make all of life political have given themselves plenty of work. They don’t engage in actual toil in case anyone feared those who had to get elected to forestall starvation were going to try something productive.
Those who assure us authorities are to be trusted unquestioningly disprove their own claims. Society’s supervisors can’t get people to take the shot when it’s free but will address your health otherwise. That’s aside from who’s ultimately paying, which is everyone. A lesson about not trading anything for what’s used will be ignored like those about why not paying rent is good for wealth.
Economic principles apply even during pandemics. Naturally, those still breathing through cloth will ignore them. For one, those who benevolently shut everything down failed to learn that businesses lack a stop/start button. And being suspicious of anything that’s free eludes those who never sense the suspicion of a catch. The worst part about looting from anyone who’s earned anything in order to pretend items can be free is that recipients figure complimentary goods are worthless.
Everything we use does actually cost money, just in case anyone is still unaware of who pays for government. Wealthy fiends who dare monetized the value they created must be punished for their prosperity. They wouldn’t have just hired people with all that cash: they’d prefer incinerating it than letting the House of Representatives bribe people to stay poor.
Your leaders literally could have done nothing and gotten better results. It just happens to apply to the virus this time. An improvement by standing still is the same as with every other regrettable foray into the lives of people who deserve to remain unbothered.
Misadventures into warped heroism are popular amongst disputed superheroes who punch disease out of you. Kicking down your company to prevent any transmission of icky viruses worked well if spreading poverty like a contagion was the goal.
