Rules for Radicals

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which),” Alinsky said, “the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”  written by Saul Alinsky (Obama’s ghost writer)

Maybe while we are sheltered in place, or should I say told by government officials to not leave our house, we should read more of how governments take control of our lives through fear.

Yes there is a virus, yes people die, but is the cure worse?  Over 20 million lost jobs, billions lost by hard wording people who invested in the market for retirement through 401k funds, small business nearing bankruptcy and the abnormal fear which is killing this country.  All for what, recent studies have shown over 80% of those with the virus either have no symptoms or very light issues and don’t even seek medical attention.  On top of that what if millions more have had the virus, which I believe I did in late December, that alone would drop the mortality rate well below the flu.  It’s time to end this.  Outside of some hot spots, re opening the country is the sane thing to do.
