Schwarzenegger Says ‘Screw Your Freedom’, Here’s What I’ve Got to Say to Him
The other day, former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger joined traitor to America, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman to stomp all over what it means to be American.
His message for us was, “Screw your freedom!”
My message back to him, is well…to put it kindly, attach yourself to another object by an inclined plane wrapped helically around an axis.
There is a presupposition here that both he and the currently on-the-way-out Governor Gavin Newsom. They presume that wearing masks is absolutely critical to stopping this virus from spreading.
WHEN DID THIS EVER WORK?!
It never worked because it doesn’t work. We’ve got over a year’s worth of statistics to prove it.
And Schwarzenegger leaves out one of the most important things. He says we can wear a mask, social distance, getting vaccinated, and washing hands.
How about this radical idea…being healthy. Take care of your body and let it do its thing. I have been taking loads of Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Zinc, and other vitamins as well during this entire time. It’s good to give your body what it needs and according to the data, if you’re deficient in some of these vitamins, especially Vitamin D, you have a greater risk of having a hard time or even dying from this virus and it’s very likely that you are part of the population that is deficient in one or more of these vitamins.
The truth is that this Delta variant is not more deadly. This virus, as viruses do, is weakening. This one may be more contagious – or it may not depending on what set of data you look at. But it’s certainly not more deadly. It is not more virulent than the previous variants.
And it’s not “according to my principles this is a free country” it’s according to the Constitution. If there was actual science to back the idea that masks worked, then by all means we would be behind it…but they don’t! Healthy people do not need masks!
Let me say that again, HEALTHY PEOPLE DO NOT NEED MASKS!
To mention one more thing, I thought that Ian Haworth said it well when he wrote:
Freedom is inherently tied with responsibility. Freedom, at its core, is the ability to stand alone, make decisions, and live with the consequences of those decisions. However, Schwarzenegger blurred the line between this positive form of freedom and responsibility by referencing the notion of “obligation.”
First, under systems of freedom, no one is “obliged” to do anything. Instead, you can do what you want, but with a full understanding of the consequences.
Then, under this system of responsibility, since we are individuals who share the same civilization, it’s obviously true that we must limit ourselves to some extent when it concerns the freedom of others. There is no right to murder one another, for example. After agreeing that this line between freedoms exists, we must then understand that the definition of this line must be carefully placed.
Traffic lights, in this case, are the result of a long-standing debate over proven tools that allow a complex system of travel to become somewhat organized and allow people to travel freely while minimizing the risk for unintentional and intentional human damage.
But the fact that the “traffic light” freedom infringement is pragmatic does not mean that other infringements are equally pragmatic. The complete efficacy of masks as a tool against COVID-19 in real-life situations is still the subject of rigorous debate, and yet Schwarzenegger is declaring the existence of a conclusion without performing any of the crucial prior steps.
