“…But I hope our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us, that the less we use our power, the greater it will be.” – Thomas Jefferson

Day 15 shutdown.  How was that Mandate Monday for everyone? Next week Martial Law Monday?

Which leads me to the question, how much power can a democratic government enforce until it no longer has a democracy.  If one person’s freedoms end where another person’s freedom begins, what rights does the government have to stifle our freedoms based on arbitrary essential/non-essential selections.

Food, water, shelter are essential for life, as are the now famous life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  But what if the government says to many small business owners, “Yes, you have a skill that people are willing to pay money for, and you have worked at that skill for a decade, possibly several; to pursue your happiness, but we now find it that you can no longer do that.  You do not have the money to influence us.  You are not big banks, big real estate, big pharmaceuticals, big technology, or big chain businesses.  Do not worry, we will say we cannot separate the medical crisis from the economic crisis, and we can do without you, but we cannot do without those who are too big to fail.  This will strengthen or relationships with those big businesses, and they too will be indebted to us.  If you lose your house or your business, we can offer you a “loan,” and you will be indebted to us also.  Now close, or we will put you in jail and cripple you financially.”

Now, we realize that this pandemic is serious, and we do not want lives to be lost, and we want to and are doing our part to flatten the curve so this does not become more serious, But the above is some food for thought in these trying times.  On a more fitness related note, check out the links below.

“Through the years, I have combined meditation, action, and the Iron into a single strength. I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts. Time spent away from the Iron makes my mind degenerate. I wallow in a thick depression. My body shuts down my mind.” – Henry Rollins

“The game of lifting isn’t an 8 week pursuit.  It doesn’t last as long as your latest program does. Rather, it’s a lifetime pursuit.  If you understand this, then progressing slowly isn’t a big deal.  In fact, this can be a huge weight lifted off your back.  Now you can focus on getting those 5 extra pounds rather than 50.”-Jim Wendler.
