So many controlled by so few

May 14, 2020

To the editor:
In the United States never have so many been controlled by so few. At the onset of Covid-19 most Americans realized that with this new virus certain decisions had to be made without hesitation.
Yet a number of these decisions went unchecked and violated some of our constitutional rights even as the facts about this virus changed. Inherently Americans don't like to be told what to do. If you asked them to do something because it is necessary for the good of all most will go through hell and high water to meet the challenge.
Tell them they must comply or else without sound reasoning you better be prepared for resistance. No one person in our society should ever have the authority to dictate what people can and can't do without accountability and facing checks and balances.
