With covid-19 we are treading a fine line

Between the government having a legitimate concern for the health and well being of the citizens and the government is intruding too much into the private lives of the citizens. So it is a healthy thing that we have both government mandates that curtail our lives at this particular time and the protests against it. It is times like these that give unscrupulous leaders an opportunity to grab control and never let go. So the protests are a good reminder of the delicate balance of power we live under. We should all be concerned about this question of is the government going too far and encroaching too much on individual freedoms?

Stay at home

"Why, in the face of a wildly infectious pandemic killing thousands and infecting millions, would these fellow Americans express outrage that they were asked to stay at home so as not to spread the disease?"

They were not asked to stay at home they were ordered to stay at home. The people in Michigan were prohibited from buying gardening supplies. That is ridiculous. Then there is this;

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

The government should be providing guidance on how we can conduct business while minimizing risk. Ordering people to stay at home is simply tyranny.
