The story really should be that these politicians knew this is exactly what would happen and are orchestrating a scenario they hope to use against Biden/democrats in future elections. The press should cover it in that way.

... Administration from University of TX @ Austin (one of the best in America) and his J.D.
from Vanderbilt. They are not stupid people and they damn well know they are spreading
the disease with their actions. The question is why?

We need to make the GOP, the MAGA people, and Fox News own this C-19 pandemic.

Bottom line, they are morally-malignant; they are ethical idiots.

They are so extremely subjective (me,my, mine) that they fail to see objective reality (I, we, us).

When the truth is out there, continued 'ignorance' equals 'ignoring' that which is there to be known.

The "why?" is that they are ignorant of the nature of their self and the human condition of being part and parcel of the whole, in-separately connected with the totality. Personal desires are mistaken as the summum bonum in warped worlds.

It is the false understanding of "self" that underlies the ability to ignore other selves as unworthy.
It is the false understanding of self that births selfishness and the motivational need to NEVER be wrong.
They know what they are doing but ignore the harm they do.

Too many exist in ignorance of dharma, right path, ethics, morality and kindergarten sharing.
Having been taught right from wrong, they continue ignoring the results of wrong actions while believing only they are deserving.

One who correctly understands "self' is capable of humility and change and thus is not attached to the tatters of worn-out beliefs. Such ones willingly redress the self in other than the 'emperor's new clothes.
