NPR’s Rachel Martin talks to Rebekah Jones, a scientist who was fired from Florida’s health department, who is now publishing a coronavirus dashboard of her own to track the state’s COVID-19 cases. (7 minute listen)
I can see her point of view considering the issues Florida is dealing with today. I can also see them trying to muzzle her. One of my brothers worked for a county agency and he had to be careful what he put in a report as to health of buildings etc. Why? Politics. Pure and simple. Facts v. politics.
president/governor would condone or encourage suppressing accurate statistics to promote ‘re-opening’ the economy (money).
They are called 'human' rights not "if politicians do not feel threatened" rights. Many politicians see national sovereignty/security as more important because they protect their power and wealth. Human rights often do just the opposite.
National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not resolved with more national sovereignty.
