Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
The saying that the leftist will never waste a good crisis also should include republicans as well. The Corona Virus has given the establishment a way to expand many of their attacks on our civil liberties. They have found a new life under the flag, "It' for your own good". Now that the government can control what private bossiness can do and when and where citizens can go to peruse happiness, it can be justified under the statement, " It's for your own good". People will soon be restricted to certain areas or zones for their own good. If you want to visit a different zone, that's easy, just apply for a permit from the government stating your reason for the visit. It's for your own good. How about vehicles? This would be a great time to increase controls on the vehicles you might like to own. Certain non-approved vehicles might upset the climate and cause an increase in lung cancer and other respiratory diseases. If you want a big engine or a sports car, fine just apply for a government permit stating your reason to violate the rules. It's for you own good. How about the general health of the populace? We would all be better off with more vegetables and less meat. The government could issue coupons for meat depending on your weight or your health. It's all four own good.
Speaking about health, the government could implant a chip in every citizen so that if you were in accident or had a stroke and were not able to speak, the hospital could take care of you. If you had dementia and were lost the government could find you. It's for your own good. I have one of these chip in both of my dogs.
Sooner or later someone who wants to be different will speak up and want to do what he wants to do rather than what the government thinks is good for all of us as a group. He will be seen as a dissenter and will need to be controlled for the good of all of us. His speech must be controlled or his evil ideas will spread. Mediums like the one we are now using will be abolished. The government will need to control all forms of communications , but don't worry, it for your own good.
