City Gyms Open, Private Gyms Closed in San Francisco

Socialism is based on coercion, capitalism on enlightened self-interest. The main lesson learned from the Cold War is that a socialist system cannot compete with a capitalist system. However, in a mixed economy, coercion can provide government-run businesses with advantages over the private sector. COVID-19 has enabled an orgy of coercion. This makes it hard for privately owned gyms to compete with gyms owned by the city of San Francisco:

For months, the city of San Francisco health order has prevented local gyms from opening its doors, but some city-owned gyms have been back open for months and are allowing city employees to use them, crushing private gym owners.

Per a decree from Mayor London Breed, private gyms are forbidden from opening at least through the end of September. However, police officers, judges, lawyers, bailiffs, and paralegals can work out in municipal gyms. These gyms are special, making them as safe from coronavirus as the maskless Nancy Pelosi while getting her hair done.

Daniele Rabkin, who has struggled desperately to keep her gym Crossfit Golden Gate alive through the increasingly absurd lockdowns, cannot believe the arrogance:

“Even though they’re getting exposed, there are no repercussions, no ramifications? It’s shocking,” she said.

Shocking maybe, but not surprising. Single-party rule means extreme arrogance on the part of the rulers. Chicago is one example, California another. If Democrats manage to impose single-party rule nationwide by jiggering the system (enabling industrial scale voter fraud, abolishing the Electoral College, making DC and Puerto Rico into states, etc) and by flooding the country with unassimilable numbers of needy immigrants, the USA as a whole will be a third.

On a tip from Mr. Freemarket.
