I will leave some excellent food for thought here.
While doing research and seeing factual percentages of COVID-19 spread within bars, taverns and pubs at a rate of 1.3% - 1.6%, country wide, I began to research possibilities of why this dictatorial federal and state and local government agencies would be interested in shutting down a particular business with such a minute coronavirus spread rate. Low and behold, the first articles that I came across are about how pubs and taverns where the key factors and the backbone into the creation, organization and development into the American Revolutionary war. Pubs, saloons, bars and taverns where quite commonplace along travel routes between cities and other destinations. They served not only as a place for drinks, food and rest for a weary traveler, they also served as a news hub that would carry information from one city to the next, north to south, east to west and so forth. These places where used for debates, discussions and planning as they are still used today.
You see, the big tech corporations like ABC aka. Google, YouTube, etc., Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, Zoom, TicToc and so many more love the fact that online, on social media, on text messengers that we leave a traceable and trackable footprint of information that can be watched, followed, analyzed through artificial intelligence, key word logger programs, algorithms, government and corporate employees and a barrage of other digital means to know the information of who, what, where when and why. You see, in a bar with face to face and group to group direct discussions, there is no way for them to know the information that they desire and seek. So it's only logical for their benefit to force us to use their communications systems by shutting down a major and discrete form of communications that is difficult to near impossible for them to follow.
