There are no communist options here, don't worry, socialists do not live under your bed despite what you imagine is real.

As for the bill, of course governments are opportunist pigs. The end.

POD wants revolution but scolds me for allegedly (in his imagination) being lawless. I just enjoy his hypocrisy, nothing to see here, move along, move along.

I have no idea what you are talking about.

Are you sure this is not just another manifestation of your delusion that you are oppressed by Marxists?

Back to the topic:

Laws like these are draconian. No one is denying that. And this is because the measures needed to contain the spread of this outbreak are extreme.

There are two options if we are serious about using social isolation to flatten the curve so that our elders and immune compromised stay alive:

1. The vast majority of us do it voluntarily.
2. Laws like this.

If a community cannot do the former, it must do the latter, if the goal is social isolation.

Sure must have been challenging for lawmakers to write 1000+pages of this bill in between now and the time when Congress was dealing with impeachment.


Garbage. The actions that needed to be taken first were executive orders. Trump was busy issuing them like crazy. The impeachment was no impediment to dealing with this crisis but Trumps unintelligent supporters will see it that way. They are easy to fool because they want to be fooled.

Yes, but also, people living in capitalist countries have always been inundated with the idea (from commerce) that the Earth is a limitless moving feast of products and gadgets.

Now that we're all going to die because of pollution from these gadgets (and COVID-19 is one of the signs that we've seriously injured our world)... limitless consumption is looking more and more like a false religion promoted by very sick people.

Banksters are the West's dictators. That's what 'democracy' means in rich, Western nations. Bankers tell our leaders what to tell us about the policies they want to stuff down our dry-coughing, fevering throats.
