New York's Socialist Chickens Coming Home to Roost

New York’s coronavirus explosion is because the city is overcrowded. The population density is over 27,000 people per square mile. That’s insane, and it’s not something that happens naturally. The deaths and mayhem New York is going through right now are completely the fault of its utopian socialist policies. And the chickens are finally coming home to roost.

The city is so crowded that it’s not practical to drive. Everyone has to take public transit, packing themselves onto subways and buses, spreading their coronavirus germs like the plague. And to operate a cab you have to pay a million dollars to the city for a special license. Want to be an Uber or Lyft driver? You have to get permission for that too, and there’s a waitlist.

Rent control encourages people to stay in the city. Their rent can’t be raised without government approval, so it’s cheaper to stay than leave the city for a less populated area.

It’s becoming increasingly obvious that the things that liberals consider so important are unnecessary wastes of time and money. New York is suspending many of its regulations around vehicle registration, licenses, taxes, and so on. Public schools and other government offices are shutdown. It turns out that the right-wingers were right: we didn’t need any of those things.

New York is now trying to have its cake and eat it too. Subways, airports, and abortion clinics are still open and operating, but churches aren’t allowed to congregate, and you can’t sit down in a restaurant. Apparently, social distancing really isn’t that important.
