COVID and Control: How the Government’s Response to COVID was Never About Stopping COVID

‘Absolute power corrupts absolutely’

There is no doubt that the coronavirus has influenced the lives of millions of Americans. We are getting ready to celebrate the second year of “15 days to slow the spread,” and not an end is in sight for the world response to COVID-19. The lockdowns, vaccine mandates, required masking, disruptions in the labor force, etc. don’t seem to be coming to an end anytime soon. In fact, the changes that have occurred during the global pandemic seem to be the new rules of society, as people treat all sickness like COVID-19. Even those who come down with the flu can be seen walking around with a surgical mask on as society continues under the mass psychosis of our leadership, pretending that they help prevent disease despite any scientific data.

Our leadership doesn’t seem to care too much that the U.S. economy is failing, inflation is out of control, or that the pandemic that they’ve been so engrossed in is out of control. No, after all of the failures out of the Biden administration, we’re still being told to wear our mask, get triple- or quadruple-vaccinated, and maybe one day we’ll get back to normal. If only we follow government guidelines, they say, all while they enjoy mask-less vacations in Florida and beautiful summer baseball games. Meanwhile, you can’t have a funeral for your deceased grandmother because you might get a cough.

Yes, these are the rules that we now live under, but for some states, federal guidelines are not going to hold them back. States like Florida and Texas have battled the Biden administration on virtually every federal COVID-19 policy. The Biden administration hasn’t been too kind to the fact that their policies are being thwarted by some Republican governors, as many life-saving drugs and therapies for the coronavirus were being halted by the federal government, yet another demonstration that this pandemic is strictly political.

This is the new world order. “Do as we say and you may get your freedom back,” our leaders said. The only problem with this line is that they’ve been saying this for the last 21 months, all while infections have skyrocketed and deaths have not stopped. But the response was never about COVID-19; it was always about an easy way to take control.

It’s easy for us to see that our leaders don’t care about masking or “slowing the spread;” they have all been caught not wearing masks, often in large gatherings. Dr. Fauci himself has been caught several times defying his own rules, which shouldn’t surprise anyone, but it should tell us that they don’t take this virus seriously. And why should they? The data suggests that you stand a roughly 99.8% chance of surviving if you get COVID, and the median age of people who have died of COVID is above the current life expectancy in the United States. But more than that, why obey your own rules when you have an entire sect of the population doing whatever you tell them to do and shaming everyone who questions you?

The response to COVID-19 has never been about “flattening the curve” or “slowing the spread.” It has always been about control. Dr. Fauci is an unelected bureaucrat who is essentially the most powerful person in the world, more powerful than the president of the United States. The old maxim “absolute power corrupts absolutely” rings true in this day and age, and more and more people are beginning to wake up and realize these simple truths. In the era of COVID, we need to stand up and speak truth to power, begin realizing that our government cannot tell us what to do, and that control will always be in the hands of the citizens of the United States, just as our founding fathers intended.
