“Its the one thing that evolution and history has taught us is that life will not be contained. Life breaks free. Expands new territories. Crashes through barriers painfully, even dangerously but…uh..there it is. Life, uh, finds a way.” – Dr. Ian Malcolm, Jurassic Park
People are starting to break free. Governments are learning that containing life over a prolonged period of time, is not possible. Life is uh, finding a way.
Lockdown-Defying Speakeasies Cropping Up Across Manhattan
As New Yorkers grow weary of the ongoing lockdowns due to the coronavirus pandemic, speakeasies have been cropping up in Manhattan according to Page Six.
Discreet patrons are filling the backs of bars, pizza parlors and even pet stores in order to enjoy libations and delicacies with like-minded people flouting quarantine.
Page Six is told that a famous Upper East Side bar and lounge as well as a trendy downtown hotel have been opening up in spite of the coronavirus lockdown — but strictly for discreet friends of the owners and managers.
Meanwhile, the New York Post revealed this week that the Lower East Side’s Omar’s La Boîte hosted a small invite-only party in early May. “I know at least five people who were at [the hotel bar] on Monday night,” said a source. “I called one of them and said, ‘I heard you were at [said hotel bar] last night, and she sounded shocked. She said, ‘How did you know!’” –Page Six
After the Post published a picture of La Boîte which appeared to show over “a dozen revelers with no masks in sight,” the manager of the club denied that there had been any parties. Owner Omar Hernandez, meanwhile, said “We are looking into this distressing report. I’m sheltering outside the city, certainly wasn’t there, and I had no knowledge of any social gathering on-site.”

People are going to go out and do their thing whether governments like it or not. Governments work for the people. The money they spends comes out of our pockets. The pockets of our children, The pockets of children not even born yet.
Every dollar that governments spend is a dollar that won’t be spent by someone purchasing goods from a local business, a meal in a local restaurant or travel and tourism. Its a zero sum game. Governments’ financial gains are the taxpayers’ loss. Its that simple.
Every so often, governments need to be reminded of that.
