Welcome to the Toddlerocracy.
Toddlers in Congress, threatening to hold their breaths until they turn blue if they don’t get their way.
Toddlers in governors’ mansions and statehouses.
Toddlers throwing violent tantrums and going into hysterics at school board meetings.
Toddlers cloaking their childishness in arrogant ignorance.
Toddlers rejecting reason, science, math and facts in favor of superstition and imaginary playmates.
Toddlers posing as “freedom fighters.”
Toddlers who care about no one other than themselves.
Toddlers who feel no social responsibility or accountability.
Toddlers trying—and failing—to raise their actual children into functional human beings.
Toddlers who value their every whim and momentary personal convenience more than they value the lives of others.
Toddlers embracing and advancing brazen lies. And then lying about lying.
Toddlers who want to be “tough guys.”
Toddlers who won’t accept a safe and highly effective vaccine, but will line up around the block for a box of horse wormer.
Toddlers who whine about “forced compliance.” Uhh…when you think about it, wouldn’t that describe every law? Yeah, we pretty well force you to comply with red lights and traffic laws. We pretty well force you to comply with seat belt regulations. We force you to comply with no-smoking rules in public places.
We force you to comply with the social norm of wearing pants.
And you’re whining about masks?
“Yeah, but I’m talking about forced compliance with regulations that are a prerequisite for just living a normal life!”
You mean like driver’s licenses?
You are not a tough guy. You are not a big boy. You are not a freedom fighter. You are not a patriot. You’re not even an adult.
Welcome to the American Toddlerocracy, 2021.
Yes, we will impose diaper mandates.
