If hindsight is 20/20, why do we so rarely look back?

Hardly a complete list:
  • “If you don’t wear a mask, you’ll kill grandma. (They killed thousands of grandmas.)”
  • “Abortion should be “safe and rare.”
  • “The vax is safe and effective.” (so you must be forced to take it. It’s not your body. It’s not your choice.)
  • #MeToo! (but not anymore)
  • “Title 9!” (but not anymore)]
  • “It’s for the children!” (This one’s true: child trafficking, pornography, masking, vaxing, & not letting them go to school.)
  • “Littering is a crime! Keep America Beautiful!” (but trash cities and poop on the street.)
  • “Mom and Pop stores are better than big box stores owned by those evil corporations!” (-unless they’re doing the bidding of the government, then they’re great.)
  • “Free speech is our absolute.” (until we decide that words and dissent is dangerous–especially yours.)
  • “Believe us about Jan 6” (even though the Trump/Russia collusion was a despicable lie, and we actually did what we accused Trump of doing.)
  • “We care about the poor.”” (That’s why we like to keep them impoverished and dependent on us.)
  • “We hate bigotry and prejudice! Stamp out hate!” (unless you’re our political enemy in which case  we will smear you, frame you, do everything we can to destroy you.)
  • “15 days to flatten the curve.”
