An Insane Legislative Wishlist (Part 2)
Part 2 of addressing how we manage emergencies and public policy in the aftermath of the pandemic
The last month has been a whirlwind that has been poorly reflected in my writing. I have several half-finished pieces that all touch on what I’m calling “the authority crisis” and how we determine truth and establish trust in an age of crumbling institutions. I’ve decided I need to tackle this issue methodically and through a series of pieces that build on each other.
In the meantime, I want to finish up my thoughts on how state and federal legislatures can change our legal landscape to correct the wrongs of the COVID pandemic excess and improve freedoms and government function.
This is a direct continuation of Insane Legislative Wishlist Part 1, which is meant as a hopeful overview of what kind of legislative reforms we might hope for in the wake of the first post-Covid election.
The full list is:
Patients Rights in a Hospital Setting
Reining in Executive Emergency Powers
Business Equality (no more random “essential” businesses)
Protecting Religious Observance
Only Pay Government Departments When They Function
Make Payment Processing a Common Carrier
