OpEd: Judge Andrew Napolitano: What if the government has it wrong?
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following opinion editorial written by Judge Andrew Napolitano and published by FOXNEWS.COM:
What if the government has it wrong — on the medicine and the law?
What if face masks can’t stop the COVID-19 virus? What if quarantining the healthy makes no medical sense? What if staying at home for months reduces immunity?
The article goes on to state the following:
What if there are as many credible scientists and physicians who disagree with the government as those who agree with it? What if the government chooses to listen only to scientists and physicians who would tell it what it wanted to hear? What if the government silences scientists and physicians, and even fires one, who attempt to tell it what it didn’t want to hear?
Napolitano’s opinion editorial actually voices no opinions, but it asks a lot of questions. In fact, every single sentence in the entire write-up ends with a question mark.
Here’s a sampling of more:
- What if more people have been infected with the virus in their homes than outside them?
- What if the government wants to stoke fear in the populace because mass fear produces mass compliance?
- What if individual fear reduces individual immunity?
- What if a healthy immunity gets stronger when challenged?
- What if a pampered immunity gets weaker when challenged?
- What if we all pass germs and viruses — that we don’t even know we have — on to others all the time, but their immune systems repel what we pass on to them?
- What if the COVID-19 virus has run its course and run into natural immunities?
- What if many folks have had symptom-free episodes with many viruses and are now immune from them?
- What if the government refuses to understand this because it undermines the government’s power to control us?
- What if the government makes health care decisions not on the basis of medicine or human nature but statistics?
- What if reliance on the government’s statistics has made many folks sick?
- What if we’d all be healthier and happier if we make our own choices with our own physicians rather than the government making choices for us?
- What if it is un-American for the government to tell you how to care for yourself?
- What if it is equally un-American for you to follow the government when it intrudes into your personal choices?
- What if we never elected a government to keep us free from all viruses, but we did elect it to keep us free from all tyrants?
- What if the government — which can’t deliver the mail, fill potholes, stop robocalls, or spend within its income — is the last entity on earth into whose hands we would voluntarily repose our health for safekeeping?
- What if the government has misunderstood its mandate?
- What if the government thinks it can do its job by keeping us safe but unfree?
- What if there is no legal basis for the government to keep us at home or to close our businesses?
- What if the Constitution was written to restrain the government?
- What if these decisions about what is essential and inessential are for individuals — and not for the government — to make?
- What if the Constitution — with its protections of our rights to make free choices — is an intentional obstacle to governmental power?
- What if — when the pandemic is over — the government remains tyrannical? What if — when the pandemic is over — folks sue the government for its destruction of life, liberty and property only to learn that the government gave itself immunity from such lawsuits?
- What if — when the pandemic is over — the government refuses to acknowledge its end?

I have been off twitter for two months, but this is too thought provoking to not share. I’m not saying he’s right or wrong, I’m just advocating for less groupthink. Thank you @Judgenaphttps://t.co/j6lO77pnqm
