Victor Davis Hanson Warns Against More Lockdowns: Predicts Massive Civil Disobedience

Victor Davis Hanson, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, discussed the latest surge in Wuhan coronavirus cases in the United States on Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” and said one major takeaway is that state authorities have no good answers for the public. Out of the need to do something, they are resorting to lockdowns, noting that European nations are taking the same route. In reality, they are not presenting a cost-benefit analysis to citizens that would take an honest look at the death rate and the problems that would arise from more lockdowns, such as substance abuse, domestic abuse, pauses in education, and missed health procedures. “I’m afraid they’re going to have massive civil disobedience because for them to have credibility … they cannot be hypocritical,” Hanson said.
