Unlike slaves in the antebellum South, modern Covid slaves are free to move to freer locales. From Jon Rappoport at lewrockwell.com:
US Supreme Court Justice, Louis Brandeis, 1932: “It is one of the happy incidents of the federal system that a single courageous State may, if its citizens choose, serve as a laboratory; and try novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country.”
You governors are now seeing, whether you like it or not, a competitive situation developing among the states.
Some states are loosening the COVID restrictions; others are tightening them.
In this ongoing process, for example, a remarkable exodus is occurring—from New York to Florida. From lockdowns to freedom.
Some of you governors who demand lockdowns, masks, distancing, immunity certificates, etc., are betting the federal government will somehow intercede, back you up, and force the free states to fall in line with your brutal COVID tactics—thus “leveling the playing field.”
This is unlikely to happen. The White House and the Congress understand there is a limit to how far they can push the states, without fomenting uncontrollable rebellion.
