Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in early 2020, the world at large has been altered in largely negative ways for humanity as a whole. In every area of public and private life for individuals in the western world in particular, existence is simply not the same. Millions of people died from the virus and the medical and physical effects of the pandemic were undoubtedly the worst in urban centers. But the most long-lasting impact that the pandemic has had on humanity in Europe and the North American continent is its effect on the political and social normalcies of those societies.
In America, first amendment rights were arguably violated in many states as progressive Democratic governors (and even Republicans placed restrictions on the ability of individuals to publicly worship and gather outside the home. In New Jersey, even the Thanksgiving holiday of 2020 and citizens abilities to gather privately together in their homes was questioned by the state government. The cold cultural war in which the United States has been increasingly grappled in since the height of the pandemic (and even prior) continues to rage on with every passing day.
In public schools and classrooms across the country, progressive Democrats continue to push controversial new curriculums that aim to transform the concept of gender and the traditional family at large. In New Jersey, parents are up in arms across the state as Democratic governor Phil Murphy introduced guidance which took away parental authority and notification in school affairs if a child decides he or she wants to identify as transgender. In Washington D.C., the Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education Subcommittee Chairman Representative Aaron Bean of Florida once again brought the concerns of parents to light, claiming that the federal government under President Biden has also pushed these new elements of the curriculum on public schools across the country. The House Committee on Education held a hearing to discuss this issue.
