This:
I think no one would argue that we should follow a policy for herd immunity, because herd immunity is not the result of government policies, rather, it’s a natural phenomenon.


and this:
While it’s absurd to claim that we are following policies to pursue herd immunity, it’s equally wrong to enforce such strict policies to try to prevent herd immunity from occurring naturally.


are probably the only smart statements among the 3000+ replies in this thread.


I do believe that this virus is so unpredictable that I will do my outmost to shield myself - and take reasonable measures to to so (work from home, avoid crowds, use a mask when being exposed)
I do believe that a reasonably effective vaccine will be available at some times - and I am willing to taking it, not fearing to become a Bill Gates zombie :roll:
I do believe that most governments did not enforced policies out of some hidden agenda, most of them were just shitting their pants from the scaremongering
I do believe that some governments (but a very few) are using the crisis to enforce policies that are totally off. Cyprus and western European countries not being among them
I do believe that the scaremongering and the pandemic in some cases were equally bad

I noticed that this thread stayed dormant for more than a week. Let's let it rest in peace now.

Unfortunately, the plethora of conspiracy garbage propagated on the Internet has drowned any modicum of valid anti-government criticism that may exist out there.

I'm in favour.
I was too scared to say it from the beginning because of the media frenzy.

If you were serious then you would be an advocate for Australia’s eradication approach. An approach that is certainly working at this point but is it really the sensible approach? I don’t know.

All I know is that for the time being, I do feel blessed living in Adelaide with my family. We are fully open and we have zero cases. No community transmission.

We are getting the odd 1 case of Australian citizens either returning from Europe or USA. But these people are tightly controlled in isolation.

There are 2 approaches here: the Australian approach or the Swedish approach. You are following neither. And yet Australia and Sweden are the 2 polar opposites. I can’t say at this point which of the 2 is correct. There is no right or wrong,

But Australia is condemned and in a corner waiting for a vaccine. What if it never comes, then what happens. Can we remained closed and isolated from the rest of the world indefinitely. I think not.

Well, it appears that the Sweden approach did not create Herd Immunity as their Covid positive cases are on the rise now, much more than before and no better than it’s neighbours, other than having overall more cases and deaths in total than it’s neighboring countries.

What Trump's rallies cost in lives.

...over 700 dead, some 30,000 infected; from only 18 events.

So he is calling Trump a mass murderer. :D

No, I wouldn’t go that far, since these idiot Trump supporters came to his rallies willingly, therefore, stupid is stupid does, and if they got sick and died from Corona, well, then tough luck. See you in the next world. :D

If true, Trump doesn’t care anyway, as long as these idiot supporters had already made their donations to Trump’s re-election fund and that they had already cast their votes by mail. :D
