Not too long ago everyone had the freedom to drink a beer while driving home from work, all the way up until 1987—it was being drunk at the wheel that was against the law. And prior to 1989 if you wanted to have a cigarette while enjoying your airline flight the stewardess would bring you the matches. No one dared to inquire if, why, or when you spanked your children when they misbehaved, and during scuffles if the police were convinced that one of the parties had offended the other with "fighting words” an assault was deemed not to have occurred. If you’re in your 20’s or 30’s, cowering in your rabbit hole wearing a mask, with everything under the Sun prohibited, being forced to call guys in drag "ma’am” and not even allowed to exhale too deeply since your toxic masculine breath contains demon carbon dioxide, the world of just a few years ago must seem like a fairy tale. But that’s the way things were. Imagine what sort of world the malignant Marxist rats will have cooked up by your children’s time. Medieval serfs will seem like free-wheeling mavericks compared to the slavish lives in store for them.
The open container laws came after the campaign against drunk driving. While that may have had a reasonable goal, the fact is it started everywwhere at once, in all the newspapers, on all the television stations. It was obnviously a carefully planned, orchestrated campaign. I was suspicious at the time because it was not a grassroots movement but clearly a top down thing with lots of money behind it. Now you can't drink a beer on your way home from work, or even walk down the street with one. The Nanny stater types have the whole world locked up in their pockets, and demand we all accept their anointed vision of what is good for us like it or not. Time was when the attitude was "live and let live" and if you didn't like something you avoided it. If smoking bothered you you didn't go to a bar with people smoking. Now the attitude is there is an unlimited right to not be annoyed or offended and the whole world has to bow to the current politically correct notion of the day. Of course, if you point out that this leads eventually to totalitarianism
Why can't you stop for a beer on the way home from work? Of course, now with COVID you don't have work, you're already home, so the question's moot.

People have willingly traded in their basic rights to choose for what they want. It's sad. We should fight for the rights of those we disagree with.
