Should officials leave people to make their own choices on how to stay safe after lockdowns?


Global Farmer Network board member Terry Wanzek recently wrote a piece, “The Bean Farmer’s Guide to Social distancing and Personal Freedom,” that was published in the Wall Street Journal about people having the ability to be safe amid Covid-19. He spoke a little bit more about it early Saturday morning, May 16, 2020 on Fox and Friends.

  1. Terry, I want to commend you highly on your recent article published in the WSJ. You made a terrifically valid point: government, get the Hell out of our midst! There are exceptions, of course, but MOST of us are capable of managing our businesses and daily routines WITHOUT big brother’s interference. We can make sound decisions using rational thinking! Thank you for bringing this concept to forefront. Many more people in positions of politics OR authority need to realize your point. Keep up the great work!
