Two Hundred and Thirty Years of Rights and Liberties Shredded: Why I Oppose The Lockdown

My opposition to the potential Lockdown is twofold but principally it is based on the fact that over two hundred and thirty years of rights and liberties should not be shredded on the basis of any threat, real or imagined. Americans either have rights or we don’t. There is no asterisk in the Constitution that states the Bill of Rights is null and void in the event of a terrorist attack or a virus outbreak. If we do not maintain our rights in a time of crisis, then, simply put, we do not truly have rights at all.

If we do not maintain these rights, our country, such as it is, ceases to exist.

Yes and no.

I think one's right to snuff himself out are as unchallenged as 230 years ago. One can buy enough alcohol, drugs or firearms to kill oneself as ever, and if the same thing could be done isolatedly with coronavirus without making a whole bunch of bystanders dead too, it would be totally anyone's free choice to infect himself up to his eyeballs.

Unfortunately, CoVid doesn't work that way. So the current lockdowns target not as much one's freedom to kill himself as he pleases, (that's still on) but one's freedom to kill others who'd rather have none of it. This aspect is nothing new. Even 230 years ago, if one caused the death of another person (whether by intent or by sheer stupidity of conduct), there was a hefty price to pay. Just as with CoVid today...
