My Dutch friend, quoted in an earlier post:
What was his take on the continued lockdown in the U.S.? “All of the rights that Americans fought and died in multiple wars to defend, they gave up in one governor’s press conference.”
Even if it turned out that we did not need or value the freedoms that Americans previously died for, today is our day to reflect on their sacrifice.
Maybe there won’t be too many more sacrifices among soldiers worldwide for the next few years. Do countries that have shut down their societies, schools, and economies have the will or the wealth to go to war? What would they fight for? To conquer a territory that is also shut down and packed with inhabitants who are entirely dependent on government welfare?
Readers: What do you think? Time to short the merchants of death because governments won’t be buying weapons and going to war any time soon?
