This would typically fall into the pointless study category.
The conclusion is highly predictable.
But the triggered responses are well worth the efforts.
Well done

For every Liberal, six Republicans die from Covid. Little Fish was right, it's the Great Dotard Cleanse.

I imagine a deeper study will find even more death and pestilence on the right.

So long and thanks for all the fish.

Our government will never be able to meet all the needs of all the people, especially in a timely manner. This country was built on self-reliance, but I will certainly add teamwork (not socialism) to that.

When the government fails to provide, people are right to take things into their own hands. The "desire" for "freedom to engage in consumptive and productive behaviors without restriction even if it's risky" does need to be balanced against the risk. But it's not all "desire" -- much of it is necessity.

Trump could have been a much more influential and productive leader rather than contrarian, and voluntary teamwork would have prevailed.

That's like saying a lion can be vegan and had he been a positive leader, he never would have gotten elected in the first place.

With modern technology and productivity we have more than enough capacity to meet the needs of everyone. Instead people go hungry while unsold food is thrown away into locked dumpsters.
