Some of my fellow citizens seem to be less than grateful for the things the government has done to keep us safe during this time, such as arresting moms on the playground and busting blackmarket hair stylists. The claim has been made that we are being “oppressed.” Let’s put that notion to rest at once. The government is not oppressing us. They are protecting us. Anyone who has studied history knows that no government has ever oppressed anyone in the name of protecting them. 

It should also be emphasized that all of these policies are temporary. The government has, on many occasions throughout our history, put onerous yet temporary measures in place during emergencies. It is nothing to worry about. They always terminate the measures once the crisis has passed, which is why the federal income tax and the TSA no longer exist.
