The shutdown is an emotional reaction fueled by the media and ignores the following facts:

In spite of this evidence, the media and government continue with the simplistic and misleading narrative that a highly lethal virus has been unleashed and we are facing the end of the world. Mark Twain once said of them that it is hard to determine if they are smart people just putting us on or imbeciles who really mean it. Thomas Sowell observed: "It is usually futile to talk facts and analysis to people who are enjoying a sense of moral superiority in their ignorance."
COVID-19 is not unique. Those driving this do so not because of the weight of reason and facts, but because of either ignorance or the opportunity to advance their personal objectives.
The media profits by creating and then feeding hysteria. Ratings increase, ad dollars increase, and their ideological objectives are given more audience. Government is using the opportunity to expand power and liberal paternalistic agendas. Pharmaceutical companies stand to reap enormous profits from drugs and vaccines holding the promise of cure and prevention.
The fear generated by a virus that was likely bioengineered by a communist regime has been used to do the unprecedented. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bXWGxhd7ic First, people are locked in their homes and their sources of income closed. Worked into a panic by daily media death tallies, people turn into obsessive-compulsive germaphobes reporting neighbors who don't garb up with masks and gloves or who violate six-foot distancing.
Hopeless, broken, depressed, and fearing for their lives, people surrender their freedoms to government promising them handouts of money created out of thin air. Little thought is given to the fact that dumping trillions of dollars of fiat money into "rescue" plans may ultimately destroy the economy and the value of money itself. A failed dollar is like holding the old maid card, nobody should want to get stuck with it. Using a virus to impose socialism on the economic lifeblood of society will kill the goose that laid our golden eggs.
The only hope given is a vaccine or drug. Some government officials are insisting that society remain locked down until a vaccine is available, even if it takes years. So, people remain compliant and wait for government and medicine to save them while the world collapses. Thinking that government will save us is just an excuse not to think.
Enthusiasm for and reliance on vaccines set the stage for forced vaccinations and redirecting attention away from the personal responsibility of building health and immunity. Vaccine dangers are ignored. During a declared medical emergency, they are potentially even more dangerous. Without near impossible proof, manufacturers cannot be held liable for death or maiming. https://www.hoganlovells.com/~/media/hogan-lovells/pdf/2020-pdfs/2020_03_23_liability_immunity_under_the_prep_act-for_covid_19_countermeasures.pdf
In the race to gain the multibillion-dollar market, sloppy safety testing could be expected. Even with normal vaccine safety standards and the difficulty of redress if injured, over 20,000 injury petitions (including 1301 deaths) have been filed and almost four billion dollars has been paid by the government (our taxes), not the vaccine manufacturers, for vaccine injuries. https://www.hrsa.gov/sites/default/files/hrsa/vaccine-compensation/data/monthly-stats-may-2019.pdf
The dangers are real no matter what safety testing is done. https://www.hrsa.gov/vaccine-compensation/data/index.html
Even more alarming is legislation that would force implants permitting the government to track vaccine compliance and who knows what else. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/stop-id2020-investigate-bill-gates-assets-stocks-and-companies?fbclid=IwAR22OGP4jQGVrnpiXFydu2K5K_hbRzKa8i44Jxx1qeF3UUpoc-mNcAF2FD4; https://tottnews.com/2020/04/09/gates-family-eugenics-covid-19/; https://vaxxter.com/
We have gotten used to freedom as a given, not something tenuous that must be safeguarded. Now we have a taste of what it's like to have freedoms stripped away for no justifiable reason. Getting them back requires being informed with facts and reason and holding public servants to what they are, servants, not masters.
