Petty tyranny is on the rise throughout the country as state governments appear to be continuing total shutdowns on their economies indefinitely.
Earlier this week, a woman in North Carolina was arrested and caught on video. She was among many Americans who are demanding that the economy be re-opened, and the draconian lockdown measures be lifted. Apparently, this is a non-essential activity.
Consider for a moment what we’re dealing with here. Just months ago, the United States of America could brag for a roaring economy and the strongest civil liberties in the world. Now, due to a virus that is seeing a shrinking mortality rate by the day, all of that has been discarded.
The most disturbing part about all of this is that this level of tyranny was both introduced and accepted in a very short amount of time. In just a month and a half, a fearful populace began to accept a complete rejection of their constitutional rights.
The North Carolina woman’s arrest follows a similar demonstration in Michigan, where residents complied with social distancing guidelines while also calling for a return to normalcy by staying in their vehicles while protesting. Clearly, calls for a re-opening are growing.
