Why are Americans so comfortable with schools and sports and businesses and everything else being shut down indefinitely? Because they have been terrorized. My central problem with everything that’s happened since March is that it is truly an instance of government-sponsored terrorism against our nation’s own citizens. The media share a hefty part of the blame, too.
How do we know this? One of the early lone voices of sanity, Alex Berenson, discovered this study on public perception. It turns out Americans are overestimating the deaths from the coronavirus by over 200 times (!!!). Incompetence and terrorism by our political and media classes have done something that I think constitutes a crime against humanity.
There’s also this. I knew children rarely caught the coronavirus and almost never died from it, but I didn’t realize it was this uncommon.
