Reuters recently reported that soldiers, under police command, were patrolling Sydney, Australia to enforce stay-at-home rules after portions of the country locked down hard after a person in their 80s died of COVID-19. A chief health officer advised Australians as nice as talking to other people is, now is not the time to engage in such risky behavior, vaccinated or not. “Don’t start up a conversation,” she said, on the chance that you were able to leave your home.
Here in American, Dr. Anthony Fauci was on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday and told Nancy Cordes that people need to put aside their concerns over personal liberties.

The Hill reports:
Fauci reiterated to guest host Nancy Cordes that although breakthrough cases are being seen in vaccinated individuals, it is the unvaccinated who are becoming seriously ill and dying.
“It’s the unvaccinated that are doing that, so we have a lot of tasks. We’ve got to do mitigation. Put aside all of these issues of concern about liberties and personal liberties and realize we have a common enemy and that common enemy is the virus,” Fauci said. “And we really have to go together to get on top of this. Otherwise, we’re going to continue to suffer as we’re seeing right now.”
That is not the way to convince the unvaccinated to take the jab.
Oh I recognize my enemy, all right https://t.co/X38m92IKvy

By far the most dangerous common enemy of the many people who cherish their personal liberty is politicians like Fauci who want to take away our personal liberty. So how do we “put aside” concerns of personal liberty in this fight?

Europe locked down harder than us and scientists there are now discussing getting away from case counts and accepting COVID as endemic so they can work to become a functional society with it.
The American left is pushing that conversation off as long as they can over politics.

Personal Freedom is very rare in history. Loss of personal freedom poses a much greater mortality risk than a virus with a 99% survival rate.

Next it will be climate change. Then something else that’s “for our own good”. Watching Afghanistan fall in days to the Taliban as they begin to murder anyone who tasted freedom should be an eye opening example of how much we should value every God given right we have.

Anyone that demands you put aside your personal liberties is the common enemy.
