OPINION: Here Comes The COVID Panic

In 2020, we watched politicians lockdown there states. Most of them on the left, but a few cowards on the right as well. We watched them ruin their states. As of September of 2020, California lost 19,000 businesses due to COVID-19 lockdowns.

Now that we have a vaccine which they say is safe and effective, politicians mostly in the democratic party are now pushing the fact that we need to mask up again. The white house has said that there might be "new guidelines"put in place to protect against the Delta variant.

Now this is weird, because we have a vaccine. For people who are vaccinated they should not have to worry about COVID-19, right? I mean if you are vaccinated that means that you cannot contract the virus. But not according to our "elites." We need to mask for two reasons, to protect the unvaccinated and to protect the vaccinated. So why get the vaccine? These to statements contradict one another. If we have to mask up the vaccinated because they are "at risk" of a break through case then why do we take the vaccine? If you want to get people vaccinated, you have to have an incentive. A good one would be "Hey you can go back to normal if you get the vaccine." That would work, but this isn't about getting people vaccinated. This is about power.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we gave unnecessary emergency powers to the government. My opinion from the beginning was to leave it up to the people. The American people are smart. We knew that the virus was lethal to people who were immune compromised, obese, people of old age and other under lying conditions. We did not need to lockdown kids and remove them from schools, because there has only been 340 deaths from COVID-19 for ages 0-17 (as of July 31st, 2021.)

If you are vaccinated you are safe from COVID-19. If you aren't vaccinated you are not safe. If you are over the age of 12, you can get vaccinated. If you don't, thats your fault. That doesn't affect anyone but you. Now the people who say we need to protect the kids are delusional. Kids are not at risk from this thing as we have already established. The pandemic is over, we have to learn to live with this virus. It's not just going to disappear, its going to be with us forever, just like the flu. People need to realize that and stop panicking over nothing.

Politicians want to use your fear to control you. This is what Thomas Hobbes came up with in the age of enlightenment. It is called a social contract. A social contract is where you give up some of your freedom for more safety. If our politicians scare you enough, you will give up more of your freedoms to the government. That is their end goal. Don't let them get more power. Say you have had enough.
