Government-supremacists are desperately trying to interpret government’s actions during the pandemic in such a way to make them seem smart– or at least honest. And they are failing. Hard.
As I have said before, political government is never a credible source. If your argument depends on government being a credible source you’ve set yourself up to fail before you began. You’ve hitched your wagon to a mirage and kicked off down a steep, winding trail full of big rocks, potholes, and ditches. Things can only get worse from there.
Don’t take medical advice from government without checking credible sources first. Government is not your doctor, and any doctors working for government have rejected medicine for politics. You can’t mix medicine and politics without contaminating the medicine to the point of uselessness at best, and lethality at worst.
Don’t take government’s claims of scientific accuracy without checking credible sources first. Government is not a scientist. Any scientists working for government gave up real science when they became political. For that matter, any scientist promoting a political agenda has betrayed the scientific method for politics and scientific thought for superstition. That’s not science.
Government is not an economist, a charitable organization, your parent, your master, your superior, your servant, a protector of rights, or a promoter of liberty. Government is not a safety team and is not on your side.
Government is a gang of thieves that uses initiated force to make you treat it as though it is all the good and helpful things it claims to be.
Government will not save you from the pandemic. Not even under the best-case scenario where they were right about the risks, did the right things at the right time, and didn’t do anything to make things worse.
This truth is something government-supremacists can’t take when it doesn’t align with “their side”– which it never will. It doesn’t matter whether they are the government-supremacists who support what was done or the government-supremacists who say government should have done something different. The truth is not with them. And they just keep digging themselves in deeper, to their discredit.
But it can be sort of fun to watch them flailing and failing– if you can ignore the fact that they are harming you with everything they advocate.
