It was 7 years ago today that something truly remarkable took place in a place called Bunkerville, Nevada. I was there and will share some thoughts on what was going on that day and what we can learn from what has transpired since then.
Over the weekend, my home state’s mask mandate was finally lifted. It’s surprising and more than a little disturbing how many people are upset that there’s no official mandate telling them what to do. This attitude is also seen at the highest levels of our national government. Jon Sanders says Biden and the lockdown state governors need to apply a bit of King Canute thinking to what they’re advocating. Some humility wouldn’t hurt either.
BTW, if you’re looking for a great example of how to handle the current uncertainty regarding the wearing of masks at your kid’s school, Brad Green shared his successful approach and it’s brilliant. Be sure to check out the supplemental information he provides in the comments for specific actions.
Paul Rosenberg has another remarkable essay regarding the West That Was and it’s a dilly. In this one he explains how our system of laws has transformed into a system of legislation that excludes the citizenry from participation.
