It's Time To Start Living Again By A.D. Holloway

It's time to start living again, no more social distancing and no more masks. We're weakening our immune systems by sheltering ourselves from the outside world and all its germs and viruses. It's becoming a guarantee that we're all going to get sick with something once we start socializing again because our immune systems have been weakened by lack of exposure.

 People who are afraid of getting sick or of spreading it should absolutely stay home if they wish. I want MY choice back. People who are healthy and choose to go about living a normal life should be able to do so. Businesses that want to open as they were before without all this "social distancing" BS should have that option, as should people who want to work for or to visit such businesses.

 Humans are social creatures. Preventing us from interacting, especially our children, is going to have a long-term psychological effect on humanity as whole. Turning schools into prisons where kids must stay in their seats all day and cannot play with one another is going to hurt them so much more than any disease or virus.

 The only way this "new normal" will come about is if we let it. I'm tired of letting fear dictate how my children and I live our lives.
Common sense would have been to quarantine or “socially distance” the sick and those vulnerable to the virus. Fear is locking down the whole state/country, weakening our immune systems by disinfecting everything we touch and preventing exposure to all viruses and bacteria, including those beneficial to our immune systems. Common sense is good hygiene measures. Fear is forcing humans, social creatures, to remain 6 feet apart always and forcing businesses to act at half capacity for the indeterminate future. Fear is turning schools into prisons by keeping kids at their desks all day, unable to eat together in a cafeteria or play together on the playground.

The virus is not going away. It, like the flu virus, is going to be something we will always have to contend with. We are going to have a flu season and a c-19 season. Yes, there will be a vaccine, but not everyone is going to take it or be able to take it, so there is always a risk of people getting infected. New viruses will arise. Are we to lock down the countries, obliterate our economies, for every one that does?

What is being arrested or harassed by police when out for a walk, if not oppression? What is being jailed for opening your business because you need to make money to feed your children, if not oppression? What is having the police called on you for letting your child play at the neighbor’s house, if not oppression? I can go on and on with all the abuses of power done by authorities in the name of “public health”. A cage is still a cage, no matter how pretty it is.
It is fear that is causing people to willingly hand over their freedoms. Fear of contracting the virus or spreading it. FEAR.
So let me ask you, how long should we continue these measures? Until a vaccine is found? We have a vaccine for the flu, yet thousands of people die every year from it. A cure? There has yet to be a cure for the common cold, the flu, or cancer. Do you think they will magically find a cure for this? Should we forever social distance? Should restaurants, movie theaters, amusement parks, concert venues, stadiums, ect forever be forced to operate at half capacity? Should we forever wear masks everywhere we go, despite studies that show they hinder more than help our overall health?

Our immune systems were designed to protect us from viruses and disease by being exposed to them. We humans have survived countless plagues/diseases/viruses without social distancing, and we will survive this one too. However, the damage we have done to our economies and our own health by foolishly trying to sanitize our world will take years, if not decades to undo.
