Letters from the DMZ is an attempt to provide a venue for free (local) discussion of issues related to culture, politics, and philosophy. The DMZ is a layman’s debate society in the Detroit area designed to foster thought and free discussion in a culture where that is becoming increasingly impossible. A demilitarized zone is an area where treaties and agreements are made and military personnel are restricted. The DMZ is a space to discuss contemporary issues but it is no safe space. This is a space to risk being offended, challenged, and given opportunity to use reason, logic, and evidence to support your views and if not successful, challenged to alter them.
Politicians have told us that we must follow the science. Models were presented that caused us to brace for impact for up to 2 million dead from this virus. We complied. We submitted. The Executive Branch of our states have the legal authority to curtail rights in the face of an attack or national emergency. The emergency was originally the risk of overwhelming our healthcare infrastructure with too many infections. We shored up hospitals, erected tent hospitals, and boats to care for the sick. We were called upon to not assemble, to stay at home, to flatten the curve so that we are not all sick at once. The curve was flattened. The hospitals were not flooded, the tents are empty, and the boats have sailed away. The estimates were overblown, the models flawed, and the science trumped by politics.
Why would God allow this to be added?
