What I learned is that the government is legally able to quarantine people who are even exposed to a dangerous illness.
I get it.. but I still don’t see how that applies here. They are quarantining people not who are suspected of being either sick or a carrier, but to in order prevent the collapse of the medical system. That is another kettle of fish. It is hypothetical, and I never thought that our legal system worked on “maybe”…
Thanks again for an excellent presentation. I am sorry so many people had technical issues.
Thanks for the presentation last night.
Thank you for the presentation. I was able to watch today (Mon) and learned a lot; admittedly I didn’t quite like all I learned. We do still have the best country, but we can not ever let up the fight against liberals.
Is there any chance of a transcription for the benefit of those of us with hearing problems?
I enjoyed the presentation. One question I had that I don’t think got touched on is how is it that a pandemic or a societal health danger gets formally declared. Who is the entity that decides that a certain circumstance or disease presents a serious health risk to the people? And what are the defining characteristics of a pandemic or public health hazard? One person or one entitiy’s opinion? Further – How does that declaration change as the prediction models fail to match reality in cases and/or deaths? Seems as if the local, state, and federal authorities may have the legal standing to utilize these over-reaching powers during a pandemic, the question becomes – is this a pandemic? And when does it cease to become a pandemic? How can THAT be legally challenged?
