The biggest issue I have with the call for Covid amnesty is the assertion that at the beginning of the pandemic we “just didn’t know” how harmful and pointless the restrictions would be.

We DID know, and here’s proof.

So, there you go. Those were all before May 2020, & I left out many more.

We absolutely knew Covid restrictions were pointless & were going to cause massive societal harm.

I will not forget the damage they did when we already knew better.

We must never let it happen again.
