“…What I want to emphasize is the great value of taking responsibility for your own well-being, and for the well-being of anyone who happens to be under your protection. That virtue has been badly weakened these last few decades. It’s been displaced by the belief that our Big Nanny in Washington, in concert with the lesser nannies in the state capitals, will make sure everything comes out all right.
They won’t. More to the point, they can’t.
What you foresee and fear is yours to deal with.
Your neighbors might assist you; “your government” won’t.
That’s the way things are, regardless of anyone’s contrary opinion.
Plan accordingly. And do please stay away from crowds.”
And keep at the Five Bs.
