The City Council’s idea of a lawsuit against Governor Brown’s mandates in her effort to stem the spread of a deadly virus is very disturbing. If it is done for political purposes, it is inexcusable, aside from also being a misuse of taxpayers’ money, both the City’s cost to file and the State’s to defend. If done out of ignorance, it shows that the councilors are in urgent need of a science-based (not Facebook-based) crash course in epidemiology and viral mutation.
One currently hears a lot about “individual rights,” but very rarely about “individual responsibility,” the latter supposed to be an integral part of and basis for the former.
The vaccines have been proven safe and very effective, and masks are primarily to keep those who do get infected from spreading the virus to others. Is there any thought about those who will get sick or maybe even die because they follow the councilors’ lead? Or those who work to exhaustion and at personal risk to take care of them?
