I think most observers on the right have figured out by now that the world’s most ardent COVID hysterics have no plans of giving up their newfound power, whether that be government or financial in nature. Control is a heck of a drug, and those on the left want no part of losing it.

That’s why you’ve seen a shift to demanding action (which just so happens to cost you money and freedom) over “climate change” as COVID has waned. There’s always a new grift
