When questioned about their ideas they just spew lies about the inquisitor. Anyone who questions their doctrine is evil. They are racist, sexist, Nazis... When you question their followers with facts to back it up, they just reply in kind... you're a racist, sexist, Nazi... nothing in your actions speaks to any of this. Nothing in the conversation had anything to do with this, but the authoritarian can't keep power unless they keep the fear alive.
The problem is no one can stop death. The more we try the worse it gets. People are becoming obsessed with death. With Covid death specifically. People have locked themselves in their house. They refuse to see family and friends. They won't work. They won't go outside in the fresh air for fear it may be contaminated.
