“There comes a time when you do have to give up what you consider your individual right of making your own decision for the greater good of society,” he said.
Fauci did not have the greater good in mind when he lied about the origins of the coronavirus in a Chinese lab. Nonetheless, he has since taken it upon himself to lecture the American people about the need for greater social responsibility.
The lifelong bureaucrat also seems to have ignored the fact that, according to the World Health Organization, the spread of the coronavirus has declined drastically.
According to the WHO, total cases and deaths declined by 10% in the past week, mostly concentrated in the Western Hemisphere.
Regardless of the virus’ obvious decline, Fauci continues to push, demanding that the government and citizens follow his medical prescriptions at all moments.
In addition to suggesting that Americans must forgo their basic freedoms, Fauci also caused ripples during a Face the Nation interview Sunday in which he said government health officials may attempt, once again, to cancel Christmas.

His awareness of what is taking place in America seems to be dim. For months Americans have attended massive sporting events and concerts, returning to normal on any occasion where they are permitted to do so.
Fauci—who has made a career out of medical “crises”—has been questioned in recent weeks.
Last week he claimed that he would not consider stepping down under any circumstances when prompted by radio host Hugh Hewitt, who suggested that Fauci might actually be bad for public health.
“No. Absolutely, unequivocally no, Hugh. Sorry,” Fauci said, when Hewitt suggested that Americans no longer believe in him.
“When you have an evolving situation and data are rapidly evolving in something that is unprecedented and unknown, you have to evolve with it and look at the data as it exists now and make to the best of your ability a decision, a recommendation, all the kinds of things that go into the evolution,” he added.
Further increasingly his unpopularity, Dr. Fauci has often strayed from providing medical advice to providing political advice.

“He is clearly frustrated and understandably so,” Fauci said of Biden immediately after the announcement of the mandate.
“We have done everything we possibly can do to get people to get vaccinated,” he continued. “We have trusted messengers. We made it easy. It’s simple. It’s safe. It’s free … The data are overwhelming to show why it is so important if we want to get this outbreak under control in this country to get vaccinated. And the president is understandably frustrated, and that’s the reason why he came out with his 6-point plan.”
