### Some say we should keep NYC under lockdown longer, just to be sure.

### The press is mostly left-wing, which usually means authoritarian and
they followed that impulse when they wholeheartedly supported the recent
mass house arrests. Now they experience powerful cognitive dissonance when
they see reports that imply the justification for lockdowns, "flattening
the curve", was very misguided. So they attack the country that didn't join
in the stampede into mass incarceration and showed us a better way.
