What do lock downs do? They force people to rely more heavily on government, they kill small businesses, local stores, mom and pop restaurants and theaters. Who benefits? Large corporations like Amazon replaces your local hardware store, electronics store, shoe store, clothing store and on and on. YouTube and Netflix replaces your theaters. Fast food restaurants chains replace mom & pop restaurants, etc.... Are some people in government using COVID as a way to destroy small business? If so, why? The tools running New York state and NYC seem to be thrilled that local businesses are going bankrupt.
