Lockdowns have basically been the government choosing multinational corporations to succeed while gutting small businesses and using the full force of the state to enforce that edict.
Amazon sells cheap made in china garbage all day long with no resistance, while Americans who spent a lifetime building a business of their own have seen the govt order them to shut down and go broke.
In New York, it has reached a breaking point:
Lockdowns are outsourcing entrepreneurship and punishing small business owners. No to mention that the stimulus efforts have favored big business over small.
Thousands of surviving California businesses that were depending on Christmas sales to save them are seeing their hopes dashed by the Governor who stole Christmas. The lockdowns haven’t saved lives, but they’ve destroyed millions of livelihoods.
The scene in New York, and across the country is similar to the opening scene in the film “Warriors”:
“You’re standing right now with nine delegates from 100 gangs. And there’s over a hundred more. That’s 20,000 hardcore members. Forty-thousand, counting affiliates, and twenty-thousand more, not organized, but ready to fight: 60,000 soldiers!”
