Everyone is screwed by a minority choosing to disregard the lockdown, that is the entire dilemma of the last two months.

That's presupposing that there's evidence to support the idea that 'locking down' will effectively prevent deaths from the virus, which there isn't. Sweden and Japan haven't gone down that route and they don't have significantly higher death tolls than those countries which have. If a large proportion of people have already been exposed to the virus and have been asymptomatic, then 1) the virus is clearly relatively mild and 2) locking down is shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted - the virus is already out there spreading among the population, and has been for longer than was initially believed.

The economic fallout from the lockdown will be far more damaging than the virus itself. Pointing that out doesn't make you a boomer capitalist only concerned about muh stonk market, it's recognizing that the poor will suffer the most from this in terms of health and living standards.

Sweden is much more spread out than the UK and has a much smaller population (10,330,456), so it's much easier to socially distance without a lockdown.

Not really sure re Japan - someone else will be able to explain.

Right now the French are taking care of the poor.  Right now, the Americans are not.  Both in lockdown.  Lockdown is not the reason the poor don't get support.

Check the guy's track record. Only appears to pipe up when there's opportunity to criticise the left. Seemingly trace interest in any other aspect of the site. Can be fairly written off as another agenda ghoul.

Lying about cases to make sure the olympics go ahead.

Conspiracies aside, Japan's on a similar trajectory to West European countries and is in a full lockdown now.

Yesterday I encountered the phrase 'Branch Covidians' as a description of the protesters.

Indeed, he is another lumpen ultra-prick: can be safely filed with the other pant-shitters, who slide out of a crack in a wall when they sniff an opportunity to make a fool of themselves to people who, at best, pity them. Partially sated, they slither back gurning into their asbestos cavern until the next time they need to do truth farts in the face of sense.

There was something I saw on Facebook, can't credit it properly as I've forgotten where it was, but is was basically

"All these protesters who've spent years prepping, stockpiling food and weapons are now protesting the very thing they've been prepping for because they can't go to The Cheesecake Factory"

Yeah, dreadfully true.  But there's another thought there too. 

This is what happens to your account if you allow your leaders and your media, to convince your people that propaganda is fact and reality is not.  When you intentionally undermine the moral compass of a nation so's they'll nod through the carpet-bombing of families as God's work whilst pearl-clutching about women having abortions.  Who'll let people die of cancer in the street, whilst others suck jello and get another ass-lift. 

How can you expect people to be rational, to make reasoned judgments, when you've intentionally hidden their lodestone of decency from them for so long?

I think it neatly boils down to the middle American way ultimately being a culture of spending and consumption in order to present an image of security and superiority. Hard work demonstrated by accrued stuff rather than skill. If you can't work, you can't spend and if you can't spend, how can you demonstrate your worth?

So it's inevitable that, having spent all that money arming themselves to the teeth and stocking their panic rooms, that when the crisis does hit their immediate response is to try to purchase their way out of it.

I can't imagine many other countries where a large group of heavily armed men moseying into the city centre wouldn't elicit some kind of tactical military response.

Right now, Sweden's per capita death toll is 3x Denmark's, 5.6x Norway's, and 7.7x Finland's. But y'know, it's a marathon, not a sprint. Tegnell says the curve's nice and flat, so I guess we'll just wait and see who has the last laugh.

Try being a black panther and doing it. That's what got rid of open carry in lots of states.
