New York is trying to pass a bill that allows for forcible removal by police of people who represent a public health danger. Who is labeled a public health danger is, of course, up to the authorities. The bill tellingly refers to human beings as “cases, contacts and carriers of communicable diseases.” We have consented to be turned into cases, contacts and carriers because we are short-sighted neurotic fools.
We have allowed something really bad to be unleashed on us over a cold. Imagine what it will take to undo all this. And for what? Who’s been saved by this madness? New York genocided half of its LTR patients and nobody cares.
