Freedom

Heads must be exploding in Sacramento. San Diego legislator

Lorena Gonzalez, already infamous for having been the progenitor for small business loss for the next five years, roiled Elon Musk by sending him a vulgar tweet.

Musk has a trigger finger, and he has threatened to move the Tesla headquarters out of California. He has also restarted his Fremont California Tesla factory, riling local county officials who had declared it nonessential. Musk said they were fascists, and challenged them to arrest him.

Fremont is way too small to anger Musk. Sacramento is too small also.

Perhaps Governor Newsom will mollify Musk, but I hope not. Government needs to be taught that they are the employees of the populace, and, even if they think we are stupid, we rule. Yes, we are a Republic, and the management of the country is in the hands of elected legislators, but Trump showed that sometimes the people erupt and act on their own, hopefully nonviolently.

Violence is not needed, the simple weight of numbers will do it. The people have been educated, they know the risks. Pandemics are terrible, and the Black Death took 40% of many European cities, but we have much cleaner cities and much better informed citizens. The weak will stay inside, the young will play and the rest will shop. A bit more judicially to be sure, but the populace has shown it can be contained little longer.

It’s called freedom. Freedom includes the right to take stupid chances.
