The American founders had this crazy idea that all individuals are created equal with certain inalienable rights, that government is created for the expressed purpose of protecting those rights, and that government often becomes "destructive of these ends."
Bond-villain Fauci never got that memo during his decades as the highest-paid federal employee:
We here at Not The Bee have an exclusive wide-angle look at Fauci's lower torso during this interview:
That's right. When Trump was upset about the unprecedented, sweeping decision of governors to lock millions of residents in their homes, Fauci couldn't understand why the abuse of executive power was a bad thing. After all, the road to hell is never paved with good intentions, and if it's "for the greater good," we should reorganize the republic into an empire – for a safe and secure society.
Fauci says he was "shocked" by Trump's brazen defense of individual liberty.
And I have to say, I believe him. This is a career bureaucrat whose entire mind is a spreadsheet that tracks viral cases. He doesn't think about the wider theological, psychological, legal, relational, sociological, or even physical health implications of things like lockdowns and vax passports. All he sees are the numbers. It's all he's ever been able to see.
He has eyes to see and ears to hear, but he is literally unable to understand why the abuse of individual liberty is the death of all liberty (and "societal safety"), or that tyranny is infinitely more dangerous than the 'Rona.
I don't think Fauci is actually learned enough in history and philosophy to understand that he lines up with ideologues like Karl Marx, Mao Zedong, or Adolf Hitler in their reasoning for creating "better" societies...
