Not long ago at the height of fear over the global pandemic the US underwent a change that many people argued would never happen.
- Our constitutional rights were no longer set in stone, but mere guidelines that government officials could bend or break in the name of “public health safety.”
- Laws no longer had to be passed through a series of checks and balances; mandates could be implemented as if they were laws without public oversight and enforced unilaterally.
It boggles the mind, but this was serious debate within the US and it was all triggered in the span of a year.
- Nearly half the country was willing to abandon the Bill of Rights over a virus with a survival rate of 99.8%.
- The conspiracy theorists were right all along; our freedoms rest on a razor’s edge and preparing to survive and fight for those freedoms is perfectly rational.
