    President Biden’s Covid workplace mandate revives an ancient debate.

    Recent political developments have brought clarity regarding the goals of the regime. Biden, in his continuing dedication to “keep us safe,” has directed the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to enforce a rule mandating vaccinations by January 4 on employees of business with more than 100 workers, or else those businesses will face exorbitant fines.

    Unsurprisingly, major wokeist corporations have cheered Biden’s attempt to seize authoritarian powers. Ford enthusiastically embraced Biden’s directive and wants its 32,000 employees to get vaxxed by December 8.Expect more of this whether the mandate is reversed in the courts or not. Corporate America largely has the same priorities as the regime.

    Despite centuries of abuse and each generation’s successful encroachment on its idealized limitation, there is no better document than the Constitution to provide an outline for human governance. Benjamin Franklin noted that there were many compromises to get there, and while he didn’t love it, he also wasn’t sure there was something better. I can live with that assessment. After all, nothing in this world is perfect, there are always trade-offs, and flawed humans will at best produce flawed products. Is that so difficult to understand? Naysayers can find flaws within the Constitution and the rollout of the Republic, but can they produce an entire alternative whose end result stands above it? What would they hand us, Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s South African model? 

    It is clear that the system is broken. The CDC has no real authority, and yet we allowed it to stay evictions. The Department of Labor likewise has no real authority, and yet the White House circumvented laws and morality to make it the executor of a vaccine mandate. This is not new; Roe vs. Wade found the right to privacy within the Constitution, which, through penumbral reasoning, also meant murdering unwanted babies was an extension of that aforementioned right. More recently, Obamacare was granted permission because it was construed as a tax rather than a mandate. By that logic, it seems like paying a penalty for not having the Covid vaccine is just weeks away.

    Nonetheless, a broken system does not indicate a faulty design. The document did not fail us; human nature did.

    “In the government of this commonwealth, the legislative department shall never exercise the executive and judicial powers, or either of them; the executive shall never exercise the legislative and judicial powers, or either of them; the judicial shall never exercise the legislative and executive powers, or either of them; to the end it may be a government of laws, and not of men.”

    The phrase “government of laws and not of men” conveys that those who wield the reins of power have an obligation to conform their conduct to the existing practices, laws and Constitutional provisions.  While it is true that existing legal and constitutional barriers were erected by men and women, those enactments were done pursuant to the authorizations of the people or their duly-elected representatives, so that by following the rules laid down, we are maintaining the sovereignty of the American people themselves.
