There is a constant battle to protect freedom from intrusions by our own government. Restrictions on our freedom, including direct violations of the bill of Rights, are often supported by individual citizens, the media, and various political cohorts.
The most notable of these is the Democratic Party. Not to suggest the Republican Party is a walk in the park. It is just the better of the two alternatives, as regards freedom. The Democratic Party is the only major national political organization whose agenda is nearly entirely devoted to reducing freedom, giving more wealth and more power to government, and taking it from the private sector. That is, almost without exception, what Democratic proposals do. They are also the only active political party that endorsed, defended, and fought to preserve slavery, BTW.
The Covid pandemic is the defining event in America’s history of constant, if gradual, erosion of our freedom.
First, this: America is less free than it was several decades ago. That is simply not arguable. If you do not understand that you need to spend some more time looking at the issue. Erosions of our freedom, large and small, are today overwhelming. More on this another time.
