My first Covid “friends” were Communists
This became polarized due to tribalism, not principles.
Some of my first “friends” in the fight against Covid irrationality in March 2020 were Communists, not libertarians, and not folks on the Right. Communists understand that you can’t freeze an economy.
It would take a couple months before there became a strong and clear Left-Right polarity to Covid. I believe that slow shift was due to tribal effects, not principles.
At any rate, as I talked about a year and a half ago, the debate ended up not about left versus right, but about authoritarianism versus freedom: Up versus Down.
