You may not be aware of what the bastards are doing in the UK.
The UK has been in the clear on the virus for a long time.
Here's a relevant chart:
Well, now they're imposing more restrictions.
With a few exceptions, no social gatherings of more than six people.
That applies to indoors and outdoors.
It applies to your house.
If you have six or more people in your household you are allowed to gather in public or private (how generous!) but not with anyone else.
These rules are expected to last through the spring.
And all because of a modest rise in "cases," a stupid figure that should be savagely mocked.
Forget about the original concerns regarding overwhelming the hospital system. Everybody knows the hospitals will be fine. Now it's just a ban on death itself -- as if the lockdowns themselves don't cause collateral deaths. (Not to mention: who can think this bizarre dystopia is a healthy place for children to grow up and develop in?)
Israel, by the way, locked down hard, and required masks and curfews, and engaged in sophisticated methods for mapping contacts, and...now they're considering another lockdown because of a rise in "cases."
If all that couldn't do the trick, what the hell are we doing?
(I shouldn't say we. You and I have nothing to do with this.)
Here, by the way, is a graphical reminder of the helpfulness of lockdowns.
The UK, Lockdown Central, is in green. That other line is Sweden, the country we're all supposed to hate:
I've said in numerous episodes of the Tom Woods Show that there are two parallel societies emerging, each living almost in its own reality. One lives in terror of the virus and almost refuses to acknowledge favorable trends. The other realizes that the virus is in fact manageable after all, and that we cannot continue to destroy people's lives -- lives of both young and old, I might add -- indefinitely, or even "until there's a vaccine."
(Dr. Fauci is saying probably not until the end of 2021 can we maybe have our lives back -- an estimate that could well turn out to be about as accurate as "15 days to flatten the curve.")
My Tom Woods Show Elite represents this second society, the one that understands the ubiquity of risk, and the foolishness of madly uprooting one kind of risk while at the same time increasing countless others (e.g., all the ways the lockdowns have caused collateral damage).
You've been thinking about it.
