It’s long past time to quit giving people who claim they’re compassionate a free pass (“but his intentions were good”) when the results of their programs turn out to be anything but compassionate. From Bill Rice, Jr. at zerohedge.com:
Where is compassion for the millions who’ve suffered harm from lockdowns?
Like myself, I’m sure many Americans are starting to grow tired of being labeled “insensitive” or “uncaring” or lacking compassion because we are perceived as not caring about “at-risk” people who might contract the coronavirus.
Let’s talk about “compassion for our fellow man.”
…Where’s the compassion for the single mom who is increasingly struggling to purchase diapers or baby formula for her children? Where’s the compassion for the victims of child abuse, which is no doubt spiking due to the collapse of the economy?
…Where’s the compassion for those who have already committed suicide, or attempted suicide or will do either in coming months and years?
…Where’s the compassion for the tens of thousands of business owners who have permanently closed their businesses, or for the tens of millions of unemployed former employees? Where’s the compassion for those who have been forced to declare bankruptcy, or are agonizing over doing this?
…Where’s the compassion for the millions of college students who are experiencing increased levels of anxiety and depression over draconian campus policies that keep them isolated and prevents them from receiving a real education?
…Where’s the compassion for the younger school children who are unnecessarily living in fear? Where’s the compassion for the same children who can’t even play or socialize with other children anymore?
…Where’s the compassion for the hundreds of millions of people in impoverished nations who will suffer famine, misery or death because food logistic systems are falling apart?
…Where’s the compassion for those who spent weeks or months in a hospital – for every health reason – and could not spend a minute with their loved ones, many dying alone by themselves?
…Where’s the compassion for family members who received no comfort from neighbors and friends after their loved one died because these people were not allowed to attend their funeral?
