No more lockdowns and mandates

 The problem with the lockdowners is that they don't seem to the understand that if you want to impose these types burdens on people, then the burden of proof is on you to justify them. 

While "I don't know" is a perfectly acceptable answer to a scientific inquiry, it isn't grounds to impose masks or vaccines mandates or lockdown measures. That was the fundamental error many jurisdictions made at the beginning of the pandemic. Using a lack of knowledge or understanding to impose lockdown restrictions. In other words, it wasn't science that was the basis of these measures, it was fear. They knew early on that, however, that these measures weren't required and yet they pushed them anyway. That's why the public health establishment and certain politicians who saw opportunity in the lockdowns, have continually tried to scare people to keep the panic going. 

Even though fear is a great motivating factor, it isn't science and it was never enough to justify continuing these mandates, especially now that science does clearly show that they were wrong all along - masks are not required and unvaccinated children have much lower risk from Covid that even vaccinated adults do. 

But much of the damage has been done. The "cure" was worse than the disease, so if you still think masks are required everywhere, and especially in schools, just take the opportunity to shut your hole. The reckoning is coming, and it's coming for you.
