    Wouldnt even have to even be talking about (semi) lockdowns if people in the West were just a little less fucking dumb (governments included). Jesus christ the contrast is appalling.

    We wouldn't need rolling lockdowns in the UK if we had a functional test and trace system to show for 12 billion quid we apparently just handed to some tory donors.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    We wouldn't need a rolling lockdown if people did what they were told. It's easy enough to blame the failure on TTT and 'the government'. People contacted by TTT aren't isolating.

    not true... you could be a worker in a pub or an office or whatever following all of the guidance and still be contacted by TTT because of a coworker or whatever. I do get slightly annoyed by people saying the guidance is complicated
    though... just go on your local council website or the UK gov coronavirus pages and spend 5 mins reading it.

    even more annoyed by people saying 'well dominic didn't follow it so why should i' or 'that snp woman didn't follow it so why should i' - if dominic whipped out his micro-dick and stuck it in a fire, would you? take some personal responsibility ffs.

    Most local outbreaks seem to originate in work places. Maybe if business owners did what they were told we wouldn't need a rolling lockdown. It's easy enough to blame the failure on individuals and 'young people'. Workplaces make it impossible for the poorest workers to isolate.

    People would be more likely to do what they are told if governments weren't a bunch of self-serving fuckers, too.

    He also claimed that the only thing lockdowns achieved was poverty – with no mention of the potential lives saved.
    “Lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer,” he said.
    None of the bolded parts of yours are actually what the WHO stated in that quote.

    The quote can easily be argued as a condemnation of lockdowns, the 2nd sentence is CC's comment on the quote and not presented as being WHO's view. Happy to help.

    There's a part in the quote that's repeated twice: poverty. If anything, that's what the quote condemns - or rather yet - the inaction of the society about doing someting about it. That's my personal interpretation of it, of course.

    So let's not implement lockdowns instead of making people not poor.

    GOTCHA

    Poverty only matters when everyone else is stopped from constantly consuming commodities.

    fwiw, you're gonna get more Janeway and Lark type sentiments very soon. The communication by western experts over covid has been a disaster. First it was far too complacent, now its become very mopey and fatalistic with the "no return to normal" rhetoric. Even if that's 100% true (and I have my questions about that), this will continue to harm public trust because there isn't an infinite willingness to make these sacrifices with no end in sight







    I think it's a bit similar to the climate catastrophism that sweeps up experts and our resident lefties. The normie has probably concluded that since the planet is fucked either way, why bother sacrificing? May as well keep oinking out at that trough, why not. There's certainly a point where you can be too depressing and people will decide to check out of the fight.

    The expert-level and political communications in the Asia/Pacific was far more cautious at the beginning, but they also communicated that this was a fight that could be decisively won. They decided to trust their population and bring them into the fight fully. And they have done a wonderful job compared to the rest of the OECD nations.
