Crises: War, civil unrest, natural disasters, the lack of life-sustaining essentials opportune the government a reason to limit one’s liberty. The government always errors on the more; never-the-less, the present crisis is no exception to precedence.
Generated fear cloaks over underlining veracity; it shrouds and denies the rationale in favor of unwarranted panic. Once anxiety replaces, empirical evidence, rational deduction mayhem ensues.

While striving to protect the most vulnerable, we Americans must accept the realities of warfare, resubmit new protocols, and open-up, sensibly, the marketplace.
