  1. I can’t find much info about Lousie Third but describing it as being about impact on democracy makes it sound like it will be someone saying how terrible it is that the government took away our freedom by telling us to stay home and not spread Covid. I hope it’s not that.

  2. Well this should be interesting, considering that our so called democracy is a sham, and has been long before the pandemic.
