Opinions: The test for those who want to reopen the economy too soon: You go first

Ryan P. Williams, the head of the previously well-respected and now crackpotish Claremont Institute, tweeted this past week in response to enforcement of social distancing and stay-at-home mandates: “It’s time for resistance to this insanity.” Claremont is based in California, the earliest instigator of a statewide stay-at-home order that is credited with keeping the number of pandemic cases to a bare minimum.

President Trump imagines he alone will decide when to reopen the country for business, although he has no constitutional, statutory or practical ability to do so. He insists, contrary to the advice of public health officials, that we can get back to work regardless of whether we have the capacity to test millions of Americans.
