That's Tucker Carlson's conclusion after talking with a business leader and examining various incidents of authoritarian overreach in this country during the current lockdown over the coronavirus pandemic. He finds it very disturbing - as do I, and as should any American who believes in the Constitution bequeathed to us by our founding fathers.
Please make time to watch the segment below. It's only about ten minutes long, and it's worth considering - and sharing with your family and friends.
Why doesn't totalitarianism shock us any longer? Why are we willing to live with - or, rather, under - it in times of stress? I'm not. I've seen too much of it all over the world to be willing to permit it to flourish in my neighborhood. If the Founding Fathers and their supporters had been of that mind, we'd never have had an American Revolution, and this country would never have existed as the beacon of independence, liberty and freedom that it became all over the world.
Why do we tolerate this? And how far are we willing to go to stop it?
Please share this video segment with your family and friends, and ask them the same questions. They need answering, and answering now, before such authoritarian bullying becomes the de facto response of our society in any crisis.
