The Atlantic Calls for ‘Pandemic Amnesty’ To ‘Forgive the Elites’ for What They Did to Us During COVID
The Atlantic magazine, which recently called for unvaccinated people to be treated like terrorists, is now urging the public to forgive the elite for what they “did and said” during the dark days of the COVID lockdowns.

Let’s Declare a Pandemic Amnesty
We need to forgive one another for what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID.

In April 2020, with nothing else to do, my family took an enormous number of hikes. We all wore cloth masks that I had made myself. We had a family hand signal, which the person in the front would use if someone was approaching on the trail and we needed to put on our masks. Once, when another child got too close to my then-4-year-old son on a bridge, he yelled at her “SOCIAL DISTANCING!”
These precautions were totally misguided. In April 2020, no one got the coronavirus from passing someone else hiking. Outdoor transmission was vanishingly rare. Our cloth masks made out of old bandanas wouldn’t have done anything, anyway. But the thing is: We didn’t know.
