New Powers of U.S. (and other) Governments
It is now established that American government has the authority to:

  1. Modify/Close businesses, schools, churches and any other public gathering places atwill without notice or due process.
  2. Order the operations of nursing homes, hospitals and public service enterprises on the same basis without regard for economic effects.
  3. Confine citizens and order their behavior on the same basis.
    The authority to forbid travel and to search travelers on the same basis was acquired previously. It seems evident that these actions are as much violations of the United States Constitution as were the arrests and confinement of U.S. citizens of Japanese ancestry by presidential order during World War II. Years later, the surviving citizens were compensated by the American taxpayers, a group that included them.
    Have we been delivered into an economic depression by outlaw government? And of greater note: What’s next?
