That was originally supposed to be the idea behind the lock down. We weren't supposed to go until a cure.
The economic damages already suffered are insane. Let alone continuing this for another year.
I would say this is why when it was originally proposed, spoken of, and power to do so was given, it was only supposed to last a month or 2.>>8441
If human lives were the only metric we used for value, everybody would be in a prison camp, with no ability to go out except for at the scheduled points, in which they garden
We would have a perfect society, where the needs of the many are met by strict And efficient work schedules, where comfort and happiness is secondary to survival
We do not live in such a society comment because such a standard is absurd. It does not make logical sense. Nobody, ever, has advocated for such, who has actually thought about it. Everybody who does makes a billion odd exceptions and stipulations, as soon as you start questioning them on it.
The idea is entirely down to feelings. Nothing more.
It is said to be good because it feels emotionally good. Not because it makes sense, or is actually good.
This aside, I do not believe for a single 2nd at this point The greater good is being served by these lock Downs. Many people are suffering, and many will die as a result of the economic explosion that we are intentionally throwing ourselves into. Many will die because of the inevitable unrest that will result from this. Many will die as they catch themselves outside of a window because of watching every single thing that they worked their entire lives for crumble into complete and total cost. Many will die because they are homeless, unable to pay rent, or even feed their families.
The damage that the disease could have caused is microscopic to the damage already caused
Especially when you consider the complete and total erosion of basic liberties.>Add to that the fact that, if this country was NOT run by a corrupt criminal moron, then absolutely nothing would be "traded" by doing lockdowns
Trump has had little if anything to do with the lockdown. It's been entirely state by state, as it really ought to be.
Blaming him does nothing for the actual problems at hand. It's a scapegoat at best, and a case of partisan tribalism at worst.>Every other developed nation was able to do it and get the virus under control by paying people to stay home and suspending rent and other things.
If you honestly believe this, you are ignorant. That is simply what you are. You are not actually paying attention to the world situation, you are only going off of a surface level at best investigation.
Both the UK and Australia I know for certain are hitting the exact same problems America is, although with a higher rate of government overstep I'll grant.
China seems to solve its problem mainly through a body count, And while I don't know the specifics due to not speaking the languages for most of Europe, I know that they are suffering the same cases of complete erosion of private sectors outside of big business, difficulty for families to pay basic necessities, and of course again erosion of the most basic liberties. >I just hate that so many people accept the situation we ended up in because of the corrupt moron as the only possible situation, ignoring the rest of the world.
And I just hate how so many people seem to not understand how America actually works, what States can do, how they govern themselves, and of course, how a bad idea doesn't just work because it sounds nice.
They say the same nonsense for communism, and that's never once turned out for the better.
Maybe scapegoating all of your problems onto somebody else is a unhealthy way to conduct yourself.
